[This blog is in Malayalam language-the mother tongue of the Kerala people of South India. It gives a brief outline about the contents of the Urantia Book- the Fifth Epochal Revelation given to mankind ]
Though this blog is primarily meant for Keralites who are conversant with their mother tongue Malayalam, I felt the need for providing a translation of the above in English for the benefit of those who cannot read Malayalam. The blog translation in English is given below:
This book is a huge one containing a foreword and 196 subject papers. It has over 2200 pages. It is almost double the size of the Bible.
Super human personalities who are superior in knowledge describing things to humans of inferior knowledge, is the manner in which the suject papers are written.
It is authentically believed that the invisible super human authors of the Urantia Book subject papers had handed over the complete manuscript to the select human beings for typesetting, printing and publishing some time in the 1930's. Whatever be the case, the Urantia Book got first published in the city of Chicago in 1955.
This divine revelatory book is divided in to four parts.
The first part contains the foreword and thirty one subject papers which introduces the details of God-the first source and centre of everything- and also the details of the higher hierarchy of divine powers that are closest to the first source. It explains the reasons why these revelations are now given to humans of earth now. Similarly, it explains in a matter-of-fact manner, the details of the original residential centres of the divine personalities closest to the universal father God. How God conducts the universe creations and their administration is also explained in this part.
The second part of the book containing 25 subject papers explains about the the details of what are described as local universes and more specifically about the details of the local universe to which our earth belongs. The invisible authors of the subject papers have taken special care in explaining to us the specialities of our local universe which is still in its development stage. One of the special thing that the authors tell us is regarding the administrative misadventures committed by one of the lower level divine rulers identified as Lucifer and his assistants and the consequent problems of that in certain number of mortal worlds including our earth. This part also gives the characteristics and details of the divine creators and sovereigns of the local universes introduced as Michaels- a higher order of divine sonship personalities. The authors reveal us the nature of the local universe named Nebadon presently containing nearly four million planets with mortal life including our earth.
The divine creator ruler of Nebadon (The Michael of Nebadon) took human form and was born on earth some two thousand years ago as Jesus Christ in Palestine. But this human incarnation of this universe creator and ruler was not for becoming a blood sacrifice for the sins of human kind as commonly understood by Christians. Because God is not fuming with anger to be pleased only with such sacrifices. God is love is a supreme truth !
The purpose of the incarnation of Jesus Christ was to fulfill a universal law of God which mandates the divine creators of local universes to experience the life of all their basic life creations before they actually assume the sovereign ruler status of their local universes. The human incarnation of Michael of Nebadon as Jesus of Nazareth was his 7th and last incarnation. But the previous incarnations were not of mortal kind on mortal worlds.
The third part of the Urantia Book reveals the history of earth from its creation. It contains subject papers from 57 to 119. How earth was formed ? How plant life originated ? How did other life forms evolve from plant life ? How was human life evolved ? When did all these things happened? All these details are revealed in this part. The reasons behind bringing Adam and Eve in a later era to earth are also explained in detail here.
Perhaps the most appealing part of this book to most readers is the fourth part. The papers 120 to 196 in the fourth part explains in detail the life and teachings of Jesus Christ. Those historical facts which we now know partly and erroneously have been clarified authentically by the invisible non-human authors of these papers. Unnecessary myths and exagerations are all eliminated and the essence of the life and teachings of Jesus is depicted in the most matter of fact manner with utmost clarity.
The style of writing of this book reflects its high intellectual standard. Many human scholars believe that it is not humanly possible to write this kind of a work. A keen reader of the Urantia Book would get overwhelmed by the pieces of scientific or historical truths that the authors told us which are getting varified as correct as we keep enhancing our scientific knowledge.
Malayalees who are comfortable with English should read this book. Life might become meaning ful and clear with reading and understanding of the Urantia Book. This I say from my experience.
