There is no Salvation except through Christ

Hands of GururajWater cannot run up a mountain, it has to flow down a mountain. There are certain laws of nature that constitute this universe, and the universe functions according to those laws of nature. But when an imbalance occurs so that, through unnatural means, you try to pump water up the hill rather than allow it to flow down the hill, then the Avatar manifests himself in human form. For who could touch the minds and hearts of man, but another man—the Son of Man. That is the Avatar.

When the Incarnation comes to right the balance at various points in the universe, he is not ridding the universe of samskaras. Being of light (or sattvic) nature, he infuses, by his very presence and teachings, the sattvic, subtler, purer values of love into the darkness that exists.

A person says, “My religion says no one can be saved except through Jesus Christ.” I say, “Yes, that is true. There is no salvation on earth except through Christ.” But what do we mean by Christ? I do not talk of the man called Jesus. I talk of that which is called Christ—Christ consciousness. To say that you can only reach Divinity through Christ is very true. There’s a matter of terminology here, for Buddha consciousness, Christ consciousness, and Krishna consciousness mean but the same. Different words are used because of different cultures, but basically we are referring to pure consciousness, which has been embodied to teach the world.
