His search for God led us to meet Shri Mataji
"I got my first Realization on 12th August 1973. The credit for this Realization goes to my eldest brother, Maruti, who had a yearning for getting Realization for a number of years. His search for God led us to meet Mataji.
On a fine day of 12th August, we read an article written by one Marathi newspaper editor about Shri Mataji and Sahaja Yoga and that led us to approach him in his office. We went to see him and he explained how things had happened to him. He told us to visit Bharata Vidya Bhavan on that same day. We left his place and went to Bharata Vidya Bhavan about three o'clock and, to our surprise, nobody was there to tell us what Sahaja Yoga is. We came out of the hall and telephoned back to his office, asking, 'Where do we find Mataji?' He said, 'Oh, this is not the time. You must come after six or seven in the evening.'
On the very same day in the evening we again went to Bharatiya Vidya Bhavan, where Mataji was giving Realization to a very few people, ten or fifteen people. We both of us sat there and, this being a very early stage of Sahaja, Mataji was Herself working hard to give Realization and raising our kundalinis.
To my great surprise, when She touched my fontanelle, on my head, there was a flash and I saw—so-called at that time I was not knowing it was the Agnya Chakra—a Christ crucified. It was for five or six seconds, just a flash. I myself wondered why I—myself being a Hindu and a great hater of Christianity—should get a vision of a crucified Christ.
But I didn't speak anything at that time. I started enjoying it. I just closed my eyes and Mother said, 'You got Realization (baptism/ kundalini awakening) at the very first sitting.'"
Note: This is but one experience/vision of Jesus Christ of which hundreds have been experienced by many disciples of Shri Mataji, not the least being the verification by non-Christian children given on this website regarding their meeting Jesus and others in the Kingdom of God (Sahasrara Chakra) within, with the latter, moreover, providing irrefutable evidence of Shri Mataji's central claim that humans can "enter into the Kingdom of God here, as I say, in the Seventh Chakra." Since children have given evidence of entering therein (in their spirit form), the existence of the Kingdom of God within has been established, i.e., substantiated.
"Then Pilate entered the headquarters again, summoned Jesus, and asked him, 'Are you the King of the Jews?' Jesus answered, 'Do you ask this on your own, or did others tell you about me?' Pilate replied, 'I am not a Jew, am I? Your own nation and the chief priests have handed you over to me. What have you done?' Jesus answered, 'My kingdom is not from this world. If my kingdom were from this world, my followers would be fighting to keep me from being handed over to the Jews. But as it is, my kingdom is not from here.' Pilate asked him, 'So you are a king?' Jesus answered, 'You say that I am a king. For this I was born, and for this I came into the world, to testify to the truth. Everyone who belongs to the truth listens to my voice.'" (Francis, Atkins 2003, 233)
"There is no reference in the New Testament to any work of the Spirit apart from Christ. The Spirit is, in an exclusive sense, the Spirit of Christ. In johannine thought, the activity of the Spirit is bound to the particularity of Jesus and the believing response to him. The Spirit's ministry is distinctively from Jesus and for the community that believes in Jesus... 'She will testify on my behalf. You also are to testify (15:26-27).'" (Stevick 2011, 294)
A Perfect Sage Reveals True Divinity
"ALL TALK of spirituality will go in vain until is taught as a science of experience. Theory followed by a practical truly confirms, affirms and solidifies the abstract truth that is sought to be instructed. Simply knowing that the supreme spirit dwells in all beings as atman is not sufficient. It is the vision in practical sense which would arouse unflinching faith. We, thus, need someone who can give the abstract metaphysical truth a visible reality. Only a perfect sage can do so. He is one who has himself known and seen the metaphysical form of God by unraveling the profoundest mystery.
The cosmic vision like the one experienced by Arjuna is not a myth or a legend. We know of other such cosmic visions akin to the vision of Arjuna. To quote a few of them from other lands- the vision of Saint Joan of Arc, Constantine's Vision, Vision of St Saul and St Hildegard and transfiguration of Jesus. The ground on which a physical science claims superiority over other streams of secular knowledge is that its theories are based on and verifiable through laboratory tests. A student of Chemistry cannot master his field of study without experimenting and verifying in lab the theoretical narration of chemical equation.
The spirituality contained in the Vedantic treatises is not merely the delight and ecstasy of academicians and philosophers. The domain of Vedanta is the metaphysical world of ultimate reality."
A PERFECT SAGE REVEALS TRUE DIVINITY
Note: The theme of Jesus Christ's gospel message was the good news of the coming Kingdom of God. The Paraclete Shri Mataji had for decades ceaselessly declared in public its arrival, inviting all to enter therein from within themselves! Today this metaphysical realm has been experienced hundreds of times by children i.e., over the years they have on a daily basis repeatedly entered the Kingdom of God (Sahasrara) within themselves. As Jesus promised and subsequently demonstrated, finding it leads to the resurrection of the body and, after death, life eternal in the spiritual Kingdom of God. Jesus' eschatological promise of its future coming—a subject of endless speculation, confusion, contradiction, vagueness, ignorance, ridicule and even denial—is now fulfilled to the letter and brought to closure. This article sums that closure up:
"The Kingdom of God stands as a comprehensive term for all that the messianic salvation included... The Kingdom is like a treasure or a costly pearl whose possession outranks all other goods (Mt. 13:44-46). It is something to be sought here and now (Mt. 6:33) and to be received as children receive a gift (Mk. 10:15 = Lk. 18:16-17). In this saying the Kingdom is God's rule, but it includes the gift of his rule. The divine reign is not a fearful power before which people are compelled to bow, but a gift. Children exemplify the trustfulness and receptivity required of the 'sons of the Kingdom.' The Kingdom belongs to them, not because their humility is a virtue that merits it, but because they are responsive. 'The Kingdom belongs to such because they receive it as a gift.... [It] is the gift of the divine rule.' Matthew 19:14 echoes the same thought that the Kingdom of God is a present possession of the childlike. The promise that those who ask shall receive, and those who seek shall find (Mt. 7:7), is to be understood in this context. 'The thing to be sought is the Kingdom of God, which, being found, is the satisfaction of all needs (Lk. 12:31). The door to be knocked at is the door which gives entrance into the Kingdom of God.'" (Ladd 1996, 206)
