Battle of Armageddon for establishment of the era of rekindling Spirituality in mankind
Definition of Armageddon: A subtle-battle of catastrophic proportions between good and evil at the end of an era.
Unknown to most of us, the world is in the midst of a subtle-battle of good versus evil also known as Armageddon. It is being fought mostly in the subtle-dimension in all the regions of the universe including the Earth region (Bhūlok). The fraction of this battle that will play out in the physical plane will have catastrophic consequences for us. There is a possibility of reducing the effect of this Armageddon on humankind if we undertake spiritual practice, which is according to the six basic principles of spiritual practice.

1. Introduction to the battle of Armageddon and World war 3
The world has been experiencing an increasing trend of natural disasters, terrorist activities, war and political upheavals over the recent past. There is no respite to this trend or any signs of slowing down. Quite a number of us may feel a sense of helplessness as we see our world lurch forward uncontrollably towards even tougher times. A number of seers such as Nostradamus, Edgar Cayce etc. have predicted turbulent and distressing times of cataclysmic proportions. There has also been much talk about a battle between the forces of good and evil that will play out around the times we live in.
We conducted spiritual research to explore the events in the subtle-dimension behind these alarming trends and what lies ahead for us.
The purpose of this article is to provide information uncovered through spiritual research about:
The SSRF defines the word ‘subtle world’ or ‘subtle dimension’ as the world which is beyond the understanding of the five senses, mind and intellect. The subtle world refers to the unseen world of angels, ghosts, heaven, etc. which can only be perceived through our sixth sense.
- The spiritual forces at work that are orchestrating worldwide events and the times to come.
- Measures that can be taken by humanity to minimise the impact of these events.
To some of us due to lack of any understanding about the spiritual realm, this article may seem fictional or almost like a fairy-tale. We have tried to be as objective as possible in narrating what we have perceived through an advanced sixth sense. It is also not our intention to alarm society, but to alert and caution it. It is our plea to society to take the time to understand this article and commence their spiritual practice.
These facts have been obtained from the Universal Mind and Intellect through the medium of the highly activated sixth sense of Mrs Anjali Gadgil, seeker of the Spiritual Science Research Foundation (SSRF). The information has been checked by H.H. Dr Athavale for accuracy. Along with this article, we recommend that you also read the article on the ‘Battle of good versus evil’.
2. What is a subtle battle?
Forces of good and evil have existed since the beginning of the universe. These forces exist mainly in the subtle-regions of the universe and influence the positive and negative forces on Earth almost completely. From time to time the subtle-forces of evil gain enough spiritual energy to attempt to establish a demonic kingdom in the universe. In current times, the balance of power between the forces of good and evil is 70% and 30% respectively. However the forces of evil in the universe have once again derived enough spiritual energy to attempt to establish a demonic kingdom. The fight that ensues is known as a subtle-battle or an Armageddon and its effects are being felt through all the regions of the universe. This battle began to erupt in the subtle in 1999 and a fraction of the battle will increasingly play out on the Earth plane with catastrophic consequences for humanity.
The seriousness of this subtle-battle (Armageddon) and the consequences for humanity will be of unprecedented proportions. It is for this reason; we have named this article Armageddon, which means a conflict of catastrophic proportions between good and evil. The result of the battle will be a defeat of the forces of evil and the establishment of an era of rekindling Spirituality in mankind in the Universe and on Earth also known as the Divine Kingdom. The era of rekindling Spirituality in mankind on Earth will last for about a thousand years. We have explained the salient features of the era of rekindling Spirituality in mankind further down in this article.
3. Principle behind the subtle battle of Armageddon
Most of us are unaware of the fact that many of the events on Earth, which affect us at an individual or collective level, have their root cause in the spiritual realm. Let us take the example of the recent rise in natural disasters.
The primary factor contributing to the increasing trend of natural disasters is spiritual in nature. Physical factors such as greenhouse gases contribute to only 30% of the problem. In other words, the governments of the world and non-government organisations (NGOs) policing the international community’s adherence to the Kyoto protocol, though highly commendable, would at best address only a fraction of the problem. Most attempts to fix problems only at a physical and mental level without taking into account the spiritual realm will be clumsy and inefficient.
The single most important spiritual factor contributing to the rise of natural disasters, terrorism and political upheaval is a rise in the Raja and Tama subtle basic components. This increase is primarily due to:
The entire world is like a puppet in the hands of positive and negative forces from the subtle-realm. Good people act as per the will of God, whereas the evil people are puppets in the hands of ghosts (demons, devils, negative energies, etc.). The good people on Earth will not be able to live in peace unless negative energies are overpowered. People with lower spiritual energy who are not necessarily good or bad are easily affected by ghosts and controlled by them. As a result, they too are under the control of ghosts and contribute to the Raja and Tama. In any case, they get caught in the crossfire between the good and forces of evil.
Another major cause for the rise in Raja and Tama is the state of society with regards to Righteousness (Dharma). According to an evolved Saint Adi Shankaracharya from India (8th – 9th century AD), Righteousness is that which accomplishes three tasks:
- Keeping the social system in an excellent condition
- Bringing about the worldly progress of every living being
- Causing progress in the spiritual realm as well
Spiritual progress is said to occur only when spiritual practice happens in accordance with the six basic principles of spiritual practice. More often than not, societies of the world have failed in meeting these three conditions. Negative elements in society significantly increase the rot eating away into the fabric of society.
4. The severity of the battle of Armageddon and World war 3
Unknown to most people, the Universe is in the midst of a subtle-battle of epic proportions. Most of this Armageddon is and will be fought in the subtle-realms. The battle in the physical realm i.e., on Earth is also mostly due to the subtle-dimension. Hence awareness about its occurrence is limited only to those who are highly spiritually evolved people on Earth.
Only a fraction of Armageddon will be experienced on Earth. But this fraction itself will be catastrophic and the cause of mass destruction. We will physically witness this fraction of Armageddon in the form of the unleashing of forces of nature and World War 3 where weapons of mass destruction will be used. The rise in natural disasters such as floods, earthquakes and volcanoes will be primarily due to the rise in Raja and Tama fuelled by unrighteousness on Earth. The people who precipitate the World War 3 will be under the control of higher level negative energies known as subtle-sorcerers (māntriks).
The following table shows the comparison in severity between the various World Wars taking into account both the subtle and physical aspects.
Name of the war
Severity of the subtle and physical battle
|World War 1||1914 – 1918||30|
|World War 2||1939 – 1945||50|
|World War 3||2015 – 2023||70|
|Dissolution of universe||End of Kaliyug||100|
The above graph and chart gives us an understanding of the scale of the battle. To put things in perspective the combined physical and subtle-elements involved in World War 1 and World War 2 at its peak had a severity of 30 and 50 respectively. All the major disasters and terrorist activities of the past few years are tell-tale signs directly related to the subtle-battle. Higher level negative energies such as subtle-sorcerers possess individuals that have a mentality to harm society and carry out terrorist activities through them on mankind. The fact that the intensity of the battle will increase up to 70 units in 2017 gives us an indication of the severity of the battle. It will then rapidly come down to zero by 2023. 100 units is the intensity of the subtle-battle at the time of the dissolution of the Universe.
5. Who are the forces of good fighting this battle of Armageddon?
1993: In the ensuing battle of Armageddon, the forces of good are led by a Parātpar Guru (evolved spiritual guide of above 90% spiritual level) living on the Earth plane. At the start of the battle in 1993, only the Parātpar Guru and a few seekers were fighting the battle.
Their participation was entirely at a subtle-level. This means that all participants’ act automatically according to God’s wish without being aware that their acts were in fact a part of this battle of Armageddon. Thus all the participants are not conscious at the physical level of their involvement in the battle. The various acts during the course of the battle happen through them automatically as per God’s wish mostly at the subtle-level and to some extent in the physical dimension, like efforts for the spread of Spirituality.
2003: By 2003 the number of seekers of God accompanying the spiritually evolved guide in the fight rose to 35. Their role was mostly one of implementing God’s wishes in the gross tangible dimension. The forces of good progressively increased in quantity and quality as the subtle-battle intensified. The battle in the subtle is fought purely with spiritual power and has no physical element to it.
2004: From 2004 onwards the severity of the forces of evil and consequently of Armageddon stepped up considerably. Hence positive forces from the subtle-region of Heaven (Swarga) joined the battle. They helped in various forms beginning from yellow Divine Particles and progressing to particles of Divine consciousness (Chaitanya), frequencies of light and frequencies of colour of deities to counter the negative forces. This progressive change in form of the positive energies basically signifies that the forces from Heaven joining the battle are becoming more and more subtle and hence more powerful.
2008: From 2008 as the severity of Armageddon rose further, the forces from Heaven proved to be insufficient and hence their participation ceased.
2009 – 2013: In 2009, two spiritually evolved beings from the subtle-region of Maharlok (a higher region in the Universe) also joined the battle. By then approximately 400 seekers of God were fighting alongside the Paratpar Guru. In 2010, a third evolved being from Maharlok joined the battle. The participation of the evolved beings was in the form of Divine Particles progressing to subtle-frequencies, subtle-rays, divine frequencies and brilliant subtle-constellations in 2013. This meant that Divine help was getting progressively more subtle and powerful.
2014 – 2018: As the subtle-battle intensifies to 61 units in 2014, seekers fighting in Armageddon at a subtle-level will not be able to participate any longer as it would be beyond their spiritual capacity. They would not be able to receive and tolerate the immense spiritual energy supplied by God in order to meet the need of that level of battle.
In 2014, two more divine beings from the next higher region i.e., Janalok (a higher region in the Universe) will join the subtle-battle. Their participation will be in the form of divine particles progressing to subtle-frequencies, subtle-flames, auras of light to frequencies of light by 2018.
2019: Over the next few years up to 25 divine beings from up to the region of Tapolok (a higher region in the Universe) will join the battle against forces of evil from the 7th region of Hell. After that the number will gradually reduce because at this stage many Saints on Earth itself will have evolved.
Despite the reduction in the severity of the battle from 70 in 2017 to 48 in 2019, the number of divine beings participating in the battle will be 25 in 2019 compared to just 10 in 2017. This is because in 2019 in addition to the destructive work against the negative evil forces, positive work for the establishment for the era of rekindling Spirituality in mankind also needs to be undertaken.
2021 – 2023: In 2021, the establishment of the era of rekindling Spirituality in mankind will begin. In 2023, there will be arrival of particles from Satyalok, the subtlest and purest of the 14 main subtle-regions to help with the positive work taking place towards establishment of the Divine Kingdom.
2024: From 2024 onwards participation from the subtle positive regions will stop as it will no longer be required
6. Main stages in the battle of Armageddon
The battle of Armageddon being waged is mostly in the spiritual dimension. In addition it is also adversely affecting the world albeit mostly at an intangible level. The consequences of the subtle-war are mainly in the form of seeds sown for further rapid and progressive deterioration of the world at various levels. This works in two ways:
- It decreases the overall sāttviktā in the world.
- It enhances the hold of the forces of evil on mankind.
The main stages of Armageddon are described below:
1999 – 2012
- Battle of good versus evil in the subtle-world with some incidents in the physical realm which indicate its commencement.
- Battle at the physical level – negative energies prevent seekers from undertaking spiritual practice and creating obstacles in it.
2013 – 2015
|Start of the battle in the gross|
- The tide of the battle of good versus evil at a subtle-level begins to change and the forces of good start to win.
- Internal quarrels taking the form of small wars or clashes, commencement of riots within nations, revolt of the people against the system at a national level; though each incident may appear to be independent the root cause are higher level negative energies from the subtle-world.
- Increase in natural disasters
Battle in the physical realm
- Commencement of the war with the evil-doers and anti-social elements at a physical, psychological and spiritual level.
2016 – 2018
|Main battle in the gross|
- Third World War will take place
- Large scale loss of life
- Natural disasters on a large scale
Fight with anti-social elements
- Evil-doers and anti-social elements in society are eliminated at a physical, psychological and spiritual level.
2019 – 2022
|Preparation for the Divine Kingdom |
- The tide of the battle of good versus evil at a physical level begins to change and the forces of good start to win.
- Learning governance of the Divine Kingdom
|Establishment of the Sattva predominant (Divine) Kingdom|
From 1993 onwards, subtle-sorcerers began to sow the seeds for the degradation of society and acceleration of unrighteousness. In most cases, the world had already set the process of degradation in place. This was due to a rise in man’s materialistic nature and lack of Righteousness. Aided by higher level negative energies, the downslide increased in intensity and speed. Over time these seeds would take root and increase the rot in society. As society becomes more and more unrighteous, they play right into the hands of negative energies increasing the Raja and Tama in the environment. This increase in Raja and Tama will cause the destabilisation of the world as we know it and will culminate in natural disasters and World War 3.
The following are examples of a few mechanisms that have already been set into motion by higher level negative energies. The chart also gives other events that will come to pass in the run up to the establishment of the era of rekindling Spirituality in mankind.
|The seed of intense domestic quarrels sown in society|
|The seed of increase in anti-social elements in society|
|The seed of increase in malpractices in places of worship which accelerate the increase of Raja and Tama. Places of worship contribute to the Sattva component in society. When malpractices happen there it reduces the sattvikta and thereby helps increase the Raja and Tama.|
|The seed of beginning of destruction of places of worship|
|The seed of steps by terrorists under the control of ghosts to destroy spiritual organisations|
|A high incidence of natural calamities|
|Havoc by floods and volcanoes|
|A massive earthquake in Pakistan|
|Countries in the Middle East razed to the ground in bomb blasts|
|America, China and Japan hit by war and an unprecedented loss of innumerable lives|
|Loss of supremacy of politicians and rush of mankind to Saints for their rescue|
|Decrease in the destructive process and predominance of particles of Divine consciousness in the environment|
|The seed of times conducive and complementary to the establishment of the era of rekindling Spirituality in mankind created|
|Experience of pleasantness and enthusiasm in the environment|
|Settling down of the environment|
|Internal and external settling down of life|
|The seed of improved spiritual practice and spiritual journey towards God-realisation by seekers. Commencement of the era of rekindling Spirituality in mankind.|
Note: At the current rate the world is going:
- The probability of this catastrophe being avoided is 1%
- The intensity may vary by +/- 10%
- The timing of the event may vary by +/- 10% within the overall 25 year time frame.
6.1 World War 3
The Third World War will begin in 2015 and continue for about 9 years till 2023. The wars that will be fought within that period will all be linked. However it may not be readily apparent to the world. Towards the end of this period, weapons of mass destruction will be used. There will be an unprecedented loss of life where approximately 1/3rd of the population will perish and 1/3rd will experience suffering. Some countries will be affected more than others. Needless to say in a highly interconnected world all countries will be affected. The Third World War will be triggered mainly due to religious fanaticism. Higher level negative energies will use this vulnerability in humans to push them over the edge and instigate nations to go to war with each other.
In all the three world wars (i.e., from World War 1 to World War 3) powerful negative energies from progressively higher regions of Hell have been the actual root cause instigating countries to go to war with each other. The following points elaborate on which subtle negative forces from the regions of Hell were responsible for instigating the World Wars.
- World War 1: Subtle-sorcerers (māntriks) from the 2nd region of Hell.
- World War 2: Subtle-sorcerers primarily from the 3rd region of Hell took part in the orchestration of the Second World War. Hitler for example throughout his tenure in power was possessed by a subtle-sorcerer from the 5th region of Hell. This was also the reason for his dramatic rise to power. Throughout his reign the subtle-sorcerer was fully manifest.
- World War 3: Subtle-sorcerers from the 4th region of Hell will be behind the Third World War that will play out in the physical realm. However in the subtle-battle, subtle-sorcerers from the 7th region of Hell will take part.
Timetable of the 3rd World War and the establishment of the ‘Divine Kingdom’
|Stages of World War 3|
|2016 – 2018||Rising victories of the unrighteous people under the forces of evil|
|2019 – 2021||Righteous and the unrighteous forces at par|
|2022 – 2023||Rising victories of the righteous people under the forces of good|
|2023 Onwards||Establishment of the ‘Divine Kingdom’|
‘Depending on the devotion of seekers to God, the timetable of the war between devotees (righteous) and the demonic forces (unrighteous) can change.’
– His Holiness Dr Athavale
6.2 Role of India in World War 3 and the battle of Armageddon
From times immemorial, India has been the spiritual centre of the world. Spiritual research has revealed that in the Armageddon that is unfolding, India will hold centre stage from a spiritual perspective. In the course of the war, negative forces will instigate neighbouring countries to attack India to destabilise the pivotal role that it will play. Approximately 50% of the Indian population will perish as a result.
7. Can this catastrophe be avoided?
The catastrophe that is predicted to take place is mainly because the basic subtle Raja-Tama component in the world has increased to such unprecedented levels, that urgent intervention by God is needed so that the world can be cleansed in order to be able to continue peacefully. It follows that if mankind makes a supreme effort to adapt its lifestyle to a more Sattva predominant one, the cleansing process will happen only in part. This can be achieved if the majority of humankind mends its ways drastically and reduces its contribution to Raja-Tama. It can be better and earlier done, if people focus on increasing the basic subtle Sattva component. Thus the catastrophe can only be avoided if people earnestly start to practise Spirituality. It is imperative that in order to make a difference, their spiritual practice needs to take a more universal form rather than a sectarian form.
Spiritual practice according to the six basic principles of spiritual practice is the most conducive means for growth in the current era. Religions that preach that their way is the only way to God run the risk of violating the six basic principles of spiritual practice.
Depending on our collective spiritual practice and also if some highly evolved Saints intervene, the year and severity of the events may change to some extent. Higher level Saints are able to change the destiny of the entire human race as They can change the course of events or even shorten the difficult times if they are pleased with the sincere efforts of seekers in their spiritual practice. Seekers of God who have through their spiritual practice attained a spiritual level of 60% and above will be protected to varying degrees.
8. Salient features of the era of rekindling Spirituality in mankind
The upside of the battle of Armageddon is that humanity will finally experience peace on Earth which will last for almost 1000 years and this era will be known as the ‘Divine Kingdom’. The battle will be a spiritual cleansing of the world preparing people for a new kind of sāttvik world which will be very different from the old one. In a way, this will be an ushering of a mini Satyayug within the main era of Kaliyug. While it will be nothing compared to the sattvikta of the main era of Satyayug (at the beginning of the universe), it will be a period of spiritual renewal for mankind.
The following are some of the features of the new era that some of us will have the privilege to usher in.
- Spiritual level: After the reduction in the world’s population with Armageddon, the mode spiritual level of the world will rise to 30% compared to its present 20%. A dramatic 10% rise in spiritual level across the world’s population will be due to people at a lower spiritual level losing their lives during the war on Earth. Please read our article on spiritual level, which gives the current breakdown of the world population by spiritual level.
- Importance in life: A high degree of importance will be given to spiritual knowledge and spiritual maturity in assessing a person’s ability. The objective of life for people will be skewed towards spiritual growth for the realisation of God. There will be importance given to spiritual rather than physical or intellectual strength. Accordingly progress will not be measured in terms of riches. The view about wealth will change. It will be viewed as purely a means and not an end in itself.
- Governing system: Democracy will lose its status as the preferred type of governing system. For example in India, a benevolent leadership under the guidance of a Saint will form the government. The modus operandi of leadership will be in line with Righteousness. There will be no need for elections. The seer guides of the governing body will transparently point out the leaders. The rest of the world frustrated with its failed experiments at communism, dictatorship and democracy will look to India’s example and try to implement this new type of government to the extent possible for them.
- Closeness: There will be unity amongst all nations. People will feel a genuine closeness with other cultures and nationalities. This will stem from the spiritual maturity of the world’s population. It will be the basis of an innate spiritual understanding of the oneness of all of mankind.
- Education: Education systems will include Spiritual science and codes of Righteousness in their curriculum. Modern science will expand its viewpoint to take into account the spiritual dimension.
- Medical science: Medical sciences will be rewritten. They will now include the spiritual dimension in analysing the root cause of a problem. Āyurvēda will become commonly accepted in the western world. The attitude and perspectives of people practicing medicine will change. For example, they will begin to question if a patient is spiritually deserving of an organ transplant or a heart bypass. What will a person do with the reprieve granted to him by a successful surgery? Will he squander the extra years that he has by watching television, aimless chit-chatter, parties etc? Even after getting a reprieve people rarely think of utilising life for realising God (the basic goal of life). In other words they will be considered as increasing the burden on Earth. If one needs an extended lifespan for spiritual practice, God grants it automatically.
- Judicial systems: Judicial systems and processes will change dramatically. Now we have courts of law, later we will have courts of justice. There will be no need for lawyers as judges will be spiritually evolved and will be able to intuitively perceive the truth in the issue at hand. Their highly activated sixth sense (ESP) will allow them to plainly see who is lying and who is telling the truth. In short justice will be served instantly and without spending a cent.
- Art: Artists will not undertake art for the sake of arts, but as spiritual practice to get closer and take others closer to God.
- Security: As a nation based on Righteousness is God-made, God only takes care of its security. This means that God Himself guides the leaders about the appropriate measures to be undertaken.
- Environment: Nature is influenced heavily by man’s actions. As man becomes progressively sattvik through spiritual practice nature automatically becomes conducive to man. There will be a complete reduction in weird weather phenomenon that we are experiencing in current times.
- Family planning: Governments will not need to undertake family planning policies. There will be an automatic adherence to family planning in society. The holy Vedic scriptures have also advocated a single child but not because of fear of scarcity of food etc., but to impress the importance of control on lust so as to grow spiritually.
8.1 The importance of this era of rekindling Spirituality in mankind
We live in momentous times amidst changing of an era. This era is also very conducive for spiritual growth as detailed in the article on good and evil. Our prayer is that the seekers of God in this world reflect on this knowledge. We must bear in mind that with intense spiritual practice according to the six basic laws of spiritual practice we can reduce the intensity of Armageddon.
