Upasani Maharaj

In February 1939 (the year of Adi Da's Birth), Upasani Baba, received a distinguished visitor at his ashram. The Shankaracharya of Jyotir Math, head of one of the four principal monasteries founded by the sage Shankara was welcomed for the Hindu feast of Shivaratri. In the course of conversation, the Shankaracharya was lamenting the decay that he saw in the Spiritual culture of India. Upasani Baba then proclaimed that an Avatar “would soon be born in a European (meaning Western) country” and “He will be all-powerful and bear down everything before him and he will see to it that the Vedic Dharma is firmly re-established in India”
