"The necessity to return to the Divine Mother in order to become a New Adam, a second born, a Divine Child has been asserted by Lord Jesus. It is time that those western seekers who have engaged themselves in intellectual pursuits use their intellect to discover the Unity of the message of the various mythologies and religions; they had better realize the greatness of the Christian promise and the value of the other world religions. HH Mataji has brilliantly exposed these teachings in a new light which also illuminates other religious traditions and contemporary science. It is time for us to discover that the true object of Knowledge is integration. All the great religions are one. This is revealed by actualization when our own integration takes place through rebirth.”

Days Gone By

"I was of the opinion that an open-minded boy could not ignore the findings of eastern spirituality. So I read about it, and I also visited some masters imported from India. To my mind the teachings of Indian philosophy answer many outstanding questions pertaining to the genesis of the Universe, the relation between spirit and matter, the existential status of man, the path of liberation, etc.

On the other hand, after having visited some 'masters' for a while I begin seeing the tricks that they play upon their followers. It was distressing to find out that most are fakes, many are corrupt and that they are using the energy of the people who blindly surrendered to them, not to mention taking away their material possessions. I felt sorry for many of these disciples, but felt that some others deserved their lot...

In 1974, when I was studying at the John Hopkins University in Baltimore (Maryland) I became convinced that only a radical historical happening could break the vicious circle of individual and collective disequilibria. I somehow reached the conclusion that the break-through would be an epistemological one - that is: it would occur in the field of the human awareness . . . The present day type of California circus, fake gurus, false prophets, Science-fiction and so-called 'new churches' were only showing that the necessity of an epistemological breakthrough was in the air...

There is nothing universal about the University's knowledge. It is an orderly chaos of particulars, everyone cultivating one's private little province without any relation to the whole. Lucky me, I'm getting my MA degree! At once I jump in a 1954 Packard via New Orleans, Los Angeles. I like travelling; life is fun again; I'm going to see the Grand Canyon and swim in the Pacific Sea.

I completed my cycle of 'American' experiences, in going as deep into the Californian counter-culture without hurting myself too much. Maybe they had the answer I was looking for! An answer, I knew, existed: I could feel it in the beauty of the world, in the writing of the sages, in loving or being loved, and yet I could feel it and know at the same time that something prevented me from being one with it. I could sometimes reach 'that stage' through very short instances of blissful intensity. Again and again, I had been trying to break the invisible wall between me and Reality, me and myself, me and the unity of love. Were we not, all of us, looking towards the same goal? All, brothers and sisters, trying to pierce through selfishness and confusion, to break through dreams and illusion, to wake up, to be free, to reach the point where we could look around and say: 'Yes this I was, am and will always be. The world is shivering with my joy. I am, you are and we are one.'

In California, I reached the end of the road . . . I remember one evening near Pacific Palisades (Los Angeles), left stranded on the beach, kneeling toward the ocean and the coming night, muttering my little 'prayer on the Pacific': 'My Lord, my love, it is You I seek, it is You I want, it is You I seek, it is You I want. Help me to rejoin You. All of You who have the power to help me, help me join Him.' ...

In Berkeley I got from an Indian friend of mine, a very bright and sweet boy, the address of a person living near London. He told me, 'She is truly a Mother and She is Divine. She took birth in the past as Seeta, Radha, the Holy Virgin Mary; She is the promised Avatara of the Shakti and She has come again for the sake of Her children. Oh, you cannot know, you should go and see Her.'

'But Rajesh; how can you say things like that?' - 'You can feel it, Gregoire, you can actually feel it. You can feel tremendous energy coming out of Her, like vibrations, and it changes your state of consciousness!'

By that time I knew how to refrain emotional and mental reactions to such an apparently crazy statement; experience only can be trusted: 'So, I thought, maybe, maybe not. Let's see.' Me feelings and thoughts were not exactly serene though. On one hand, the enormity of my friend's statement made it very difficult for me to consider that he could possibly be right. We had been waiting for so long! It is almost inconceivable to believe that, at last, a true divine Incarnation was actually living in this part of the world, eating, sleeping, unknown to the world and yet preparing its redemption. On the other hand the signs of the time were pointing towards something at the same time incredible and imminent. We were among the false prophets of the last days announced by Jesus, in a growing conjuncture of spiritism, drugs, sexual aberrations pointing towards social dissolution. In the developed countries, technology was out of control. In the developing countries sheer misery was out of control; the physical survival of mankind looked like an awesome challenge. If ever the world stage was to be set up for the coming of the Ultimate Redeemer, it had to be now.

As the existing mess was man and especially male-made, I found it rather satisfying that the Incarnation might be of the feminine gender (the Hindu 'Divine Mother' 'Mataji.') It cast an exciting light on Christian dogmas also. So I began to be attracted to the idea of meeting my friend's teacher. 'If this is so, what am I doing here?' I packed up, got a ride to Chicago, flew to the East Coast, and from there to London where Mataji was staying. The last lines written in the USA betray joyous expectations.

Bring forth that for which I'm striving.
Help me to let you take me in your hand.
The power which controls power is love.
The great adventure, the fantastic ride, the unknown ride.

When I look back at these twenty-five years I must say that I have been extremely lucky. I had not been eaten by lions, neither stabbed or stoned. I did not have to drink an unhealthy potion like Socrates nor did I blow half my brain cells like an acid freak. I did not even take a train to Siberia. I had been comforted by the thought that my quest was not particularly original. Looking for the answer to the same questions which had been debated by so many monks, kings, poets, philosophers, madmen and saints. Debates which echoed in the chamber of Pharaoh, the courtyards of Akbar's Fatherpur Sikri, the cells of Buddhist and Cistercian cloisters. Very old questions indeed. Today, as yesterday, they are at the core of the evolution of thought and society.

Is there an answer? Can 'The ANSWER' be found? I had been hopeful, desperate, cynical. Until the day I met a most adorable, impressive and mysterious super human being: Her Holiness Mataji Nirmala Devi.'"

"The Kingdom is the merging of Kundalini in the seventh chakra (subtle-somatic center) at the top of the brain (Sahasrara) the abode of the awakened Shakti (divine energy.) This chakra has been described in the great mandala of the Shri-Chakra in Shri Shankaracharya's work the Saundarya-Lahari: The Flood of Beauty. It has been referred to as Buddha's thousand petalled lotus.

The Gate is the sixth chakra on the path of Kundalini between and above the eyebrows (ajnya), referred to as the 'third eye.' It is the abode of Lord Jesus Christ, the one who mastered the Buddhi (intellect) and is the Bouddha.

The key to that Gate is the child-like surrender coming from the heart chakra (anahata) abode of Lord Shiva, which has been referred to by Lord Jesus: 'Truly, I say to you, whoever does not receive the Kingdom of God like a child shall not enter.' Luke 18.17.'"

"The necessity to return to the Divine Mother in order to become a New Adam, a second born, a Divine Child has been asserted by Lord Jesus. It is time that those western seekers who have engaged themselves in intellectual pursuits use their intellect to discover the Unity of the message of the various mythologies and religions; they had better realize the greatness of the Christian promise and the value of the other world religions. HH Mataji has brilliantly exposed these teachings in a new light which also illuminates other religious traditions and contemporary science. It is time for us to discover that the true object of Knowledge is integration. All the great religions are one. This is revealed by actualization when our own integration takes place through rebirth.

Although the Great Goddess (Adi Shakti) is 'Truly Formless' (see the Devipurana) She has been worshipped through millennia in countless aspects and forms. The three great aspects through which She is channeling Her own power are Mahalaxshmi, Mahasaraswati, Mahakali. She is also known to have taken various incarnated forms (avataras.)

It is thus described in the Scriptures that She is the Primordial Power, the utterly Holy. It is certainly not easy for the western reader to face the very serious hypothesis that She can take human form. To talk about it is even more difficult. This field of Reality only underlines the limitations of ideas and words.

It is only in the holy silence of collective consciousness after achieving self-realization that anything can be revealed about Her. She is supreme, beyond praise, beyond words and certainly beyond anything that can be written. And yet the purpose of this book - an introduction to Sahaja Yoga - cannot be fulfilled without paying due homage to the absolutely unique personality of The Mother who can trigger the super human step in the dynamic process of evolution. After all, the validity of Sahaja Yoga rests upon the authenticity of the teacher who revealed it. And who is great enough to perform such a grand task? Hence in this pitiful time of false prophets and commercialised gurus listen to the TRUTH. When the thieves and robbers are transvestite as saints, teachers and yogic masters, when traditional religions have only too often sunk into lifeless conformism, or economic activities, when words such as 'Divine,' 'God,' 'Holy Spirit' sound almost futile, when the honest seeker is left alone, seemingly abandoned between the stupid and perverted, at this time I have to tell you: awaken your mind to the prospect that the Divine Mother is manifesting in the present time. Of course, Truth is beyond belief and disbelief; it can be experienced only in doubtless awareness because that is where Truth belongs. However, to those of us who have not experienced, we may say a few things:

She is the Teacher who displays a total mastery over the Ultimate Knowledge and who at the same time also provides the disciple with the possibility of experimentally verifying the authenticity of this teaching; She is the Teacher who transforms the disciple's Awareness into a new dimension instead of merely teaching him. Such a Teacher can only open a new cycle of Knowledge in which science, philosophy and spirituality will be synthesized in one integrated understanding. You naturally wonder: who can this Teacher be?"

"It seems that the main task of the past spiritual instructors of mankind has been to explain, describe or even dictate what such a life should be which has been called the virtuous or dharmic life. Of course, a further consequence of our hypothesis is to be wakeful. If the event which will trigger our collective ascent is an historical one, that is, located within time and space, we should not fail to recognize it when the opportunity arises.

Can we not guess what that event could be? 'It is because man cannot move towards God; the God has to come to him in a human incarnation.' So tell millennial religions traditions. So many of us are looking for a Deliverer! The theme pervades books, movies, science fiction and daily day-dreaming because the expectation is very much alive in our consciousness. Could this smoke be without a fire? Quite a few esoteric communities claim that the 'white Fraternity' (the invisible masters from the supraconscious realm) provided them with startling information: the Divine Incarnation who will redeem Mankind has already been in our midst for over half a century! But how does one recognize the true Incarnation? Are we sure that we would have recognized the son of God when He entered Jerusalem seating on a donkey?"

"HH Mataji Nirmala Devi was born the day of the spring equinox, the 21st March 1923, at twelve o'clock in Chinwara, in the exact centre of India. She choose to take birth in an Indian Christian family...

At this moment, taking into consideration the local time, the Sun was exactly on the Meridian in full glory, and being in the zero degree of Aries and the 30th degree of Pisces, it made a rajayogo (astral configuration of prominence and power.) The rising sign is cancer with the ascendant in the 9th degree. It is strongly aspected by five planets (Jupiter, Mercury, Uranus, Mars and the Moon, while it is occupied by Pluto which itself forms grand trines with three of the five planets and sextiles with the other two.) The Ascendant in Cancer indicates the Universal Mother while Jupiter strongly aspected in the fifth house makes Her a World Teacher. The combinations of the planets in the angles of the chart indicate unprecedented spiritual powers.”

"In the ancient Nala Damayanti Purana Kali explains to Nala the importance of Kali Yuga, the modern times. When the worst of all times (Ghor Kali Yuga) will torture Mother Earth, the Adi Shakti will incarnate and grant salvation to saintly seekers who are now seeking God, secluded in thick jungles, steep valleys and inaccessible mountains. They will be reborn in Kali Yuga as normal worldly people, ordinary householders. She will then give birth to a new race. Glory to Her! Her coming in Her complete, integrated form should truly represent the most formidable event in world history. HH Mataji did once say in a very deep meditative mood, 'To grant you salvation, My children, I have come with all My Powers.'"

"The Water of Life is firstly the River of Cool Vibrations emitted from the Primordial Divine Energy (Adi Shakti.) It has been identified in the scriptures as the Wind of the Holy Ghost (the breath of the Pneuma of the Greek fathers) or the Holy river Gangga falling down from Lord Shiva's head. They are also the Chaitanya of Shri Shankaracharya. At the moment of Self-realization, the subject can indeed feel these vibrations as a cool wind, or, depending upon the force, as a cool river flowing into the fingertips and later his hands and his whole being. At the stage of God realization the Water of Life, referred to as 'amrit' or nectar, is felt as a shower of indescribable bliss pouring down from the Sahasrara, into the central and autonomous nervous systems.”

"As we now move to other ancient scriptures let us not be blinded by 'religious' parochialism. A mind overly conditioned by the fatherly connotation of the Judeo-Christian tradition will, at first, have some difficulty at the conception of the Divine in the feminine form of The Mother. And yet, the cult of The Motherhood of God, from time immemorial, has been attested by archaeological evidence from all quarters of the globe. It seems that it is the Indian subcontinent which presents us with the most elaborate expressions of this worship.

According to Advaita Vedanta Ultimate Reality is formless undifferentiated consciousness (Nirguna.) This condition, which is at the same time the Absolute Being and Absolute Nothingness1 cannot be conceived of. Through eons of ages, it goes through alternate phases of potentiality and manifestation. The alternation of this cosmic rhythm has been called: 'the respiration of Brahma.' When the ultimate reality rests in its latent phase, the Unmanifested, it is contained in 'IT.' In the activating phase of its manifestation, the 'IT' becomes 'He' and 'Her'; HH Mataji says that the first step of the Creation takes place when God separates itself into Himself as a witness and Herself as His power. One aspect is Sadashiva (The Primordial Existent and Witness, God the Almighty, the Father, the Purusha); the other is His power, the Adi Shakti, (The Primordial Energy of Divine Love, the Divine Mother, the Prakriti.)2 Thus The Mother is the Primordial Energy . . . The Creation, spiritual and material, springs from the Divine Mother, the Holy Spirit of the Christian tradition. She creates various strata of existence, among which is this phenomenal universe. As this Primordial Energy is the genitrix of everything we experience, She is worshipped as the Sacred Mother. We read in the first sutras of the Kama-Kalavilasa:

'Victory to Her the Primordial Power, the seed from which sprouts hereafter the entire creation, static and kinetic universes, the eternal, the incomparable, who is of the nature of Her own bliss, and who manifests as a mirror to His (Shiva) self.'

The Samaya Mata recalls that the distinction between He and Her is only an apparent one: 'There is no Shiva without Shakti nor is there any Shakti without Shiva. There is no distinction between them just as there is none between the moon and the shining.' The Shakti combines in Her person both the manifestation of the Universal Existence (male form) and the Universal Energy (female form.) She is thus identified with the One. The actualisation of this primordial unity within the disciple is the object of the Shakti worship. She is the central object of worship because She is the manifested dimension of the Ultimate. She is the Great One who bridges the gap between the Infinity and the Finite; only through Her compassionate meditation can the finite human being regain Infinity. And that is indeed the very blessing that She wants to graciously bestow on Her children.

'Thyself, with a view of manifesting Thyself in the form of the Universe, inwardly assumest the form of Consciousness and Bliss.' - Shri Shankaracharya, Saundarya Lahari 35

Let us again remember that the Holy Spirit, as the Primordial Energy, is the Christian mysterious symbol for The Mother.

We ought to mention, that in the apocryphal Acts of Saint Thomas, the Holy Spirit is (rightly) invoked as 'hidden Mother,' 'Mother of all life.' These statements should help us to recognize the true wisdom of the early gnostics and Syrian fathers who grasped something of the identity (Holy Spirit = Mother = Energy.) The esoteric perception certainly casts a new light on the intriguing dialogue between Lord Jesus Christ and Nicodemus:

'Truly, Truly, I say to you unless one is born anew, he cannot see the Kingdom of God.' Nicodemus said to him, 'how can a man be born when he is old? Can he enter a second time into his mother's womb and be born?' Jesus answered 'Truly, truly, I say to you, unless one is born of water and the Spirit he cannot enter the Kingdom of God' - John 3.3

The necessity to return to the Divine Mother in order to become a New Adam, a second born, a Divine Child has been asserted by Lord Jesus. It is time that those western seekers who have engaged themselves in intellectual pursuits use their intellect to discover the Unity of the message of the various mythologies and religions; they had better realize the greatness of the Christian promise and the value of the other world religions. HH Mataji has brilliantly exposed those teachings in a new light which also illuminates the other religious traditions and contemporary science. It is time for us to discover that the true object of Knowledge is integration. All the great religions are one. This is revealed by actualization when our own integration takes place through rebirth.

The three great aspects through which She is channeling Her own power are Mahalaxshmi, Mahasaraswati, Mahakali. She is also known to have taken various incarnated forms (avtaras.)

It is thus described in the Scriptures that She is the Primordial Power, the utterly Holy. It is certainly not easy for the western reader to face the very serious hypothesis that She can take human form. To talk about it is even more difficult. This field of reality only underlines the limitations of ideas and words.

1. In Mahayana buddhism 'tathata' (suchness) and 'sunyata' (emptiness) are interchangeable notions.
2. Purusha and Prakriti represent the apparent opposition between the Father-Spirit and The Mother-Nature.'"

"Innumerable people have had visions about HH Mataji. A little group of London Sahaja Yogis were meditating in front of HH Mataji. Suddenly one of us left the room. When we asked him why, later on, he said he had been aware of thousands of white-clad beings around us and that he had been scared by their might.

In Buenos-Aires a lady who had no knowledge of the Indian mythology began describing Shri Laxshmi in the Vaikuntha stage, lost in ecstasy in front of HH Mataji. March 1976: HH Mataji is sitting in my garden in Kathmandu, gazing toward the sky. I am sitting nearby. I am looking at Her. Suddenly the lines around HH Mataji are melting away. I realise that all the lines are dissolving and only one presence remains which imposes itself onto my attention; my gaze abandons the vanishing garden and again I look at HH Mataji. And I see the figure of a man or rather, of a God, a face of unsurpassable greatness, light blue in complexion, radiating with a beauty and majesty for which there is no name. I am bewildered, adoring, subjugated. Yes, it is You, I have already seen You, I remember this Godhead... and then I bend towards the ground because I feel my eyes are not pure enough to look at Him. When I look at Her again, everything is normal. I tell Her what happened. She says simply: 'It was Shri Krishna.'"

"Often the game is hide and seek. It is the game the Devi played with the seekers for thousands of years: 'I am like The Mother bird who takes her little ones out of the nest to teach them how to fly. She flies away, hides behind a tree and calls them. The children rush toward her, but she flies behind a further tree and calls them again.'

Hiding is, of course, the consummate art of Mayadevi, the Goddess of Illusion. A lady told us she knew Mrs. C.P. Shrivastava for the last twenty years. She met her mostly at diplomatic parties and receptions. She knew a very quiet and dignified lady who would hardly speak, and was stunned to discover HH Mataji at a spiritual function, a forceful outspoken leader, superbly articulate, playfully mastering rhetoric art and full of deep insights. She could not understand how a person of such talents and intelligence could patiently hide herself behind the personality of the silent housewife, all the time graciously listening to the superfluous and bombastic talk of half drunk people...

She is totally human and totally super-human; to comprehend HH Mataji is an absolute impossibility for people of rational identification (I know what I am talking about); we just go nuts, up and down, left and right, and we don't find anything. But in the surrendered silence of thoughtless awareness we can know something. That the drop dissolves in the ocean. Kabir says: 'When I am drenched in your Grace why should I speak.' Nanaka say: 'Oh seeker, unless and until you have found yourself, how can you recognize the illusion?'"

"We know that Self-realization, the second birth, marks the entry to the Kingdom of God which still has many provinces that we may not know. Therefore, we are merely inviting you to enter it and explore it for yourself. To this effect let us unveil the meaning of the instrument (yantra) in-built in each and every individual, the Kundalini that brings about our rebirth. It is the psychosomatic instrument by which the advent of the Kingdom of Heaven can be actualised on Earth. However, this account will not be complete. Let us hope that HH Mataji Nirmala Devi will, one day, grant us a book fully displaying the process of Man's second birth and spiritual ascent. She indeed promises, 'I will tell you all the secrets.'"

"In the field of scientific investigation, any great discovery appears to be a revelation from the Universal Unconscious to a specific researcher. The discovery is then broadcast for the benefit of the entire human community. Then comes the elaboration and culmination of the process. Take, for instance, electricity: the laws, properties and applications of electrical energy manifested as soon as the human beings started using the discovery. Sahaja Yoga proceeds along the same lines. ..

All that is taking place now has been prophesied by the Scriptures of different civilizations. Sahaja Yoga manifests this breakthrough onto the new evolutionary plane for which the human race has been waiting. This knowledge has come to us through the Universal Unconscious. Now it is time to broadcast it. The beauty of Sahaja Yoga blossoms in en masse realisation. The individual yogi (microcosm) spreads to the society (macrocosm) the knowledge of the great primordial Cosmic Being: The VIRATA. That is the culminating revelation that explains, integrates and fulfils all the previous revelations. It is the fulfillment of the social contract between God and His creation, Man.”

"The mystical path consists in overcoming the brains usual performance in order to attain higher stages of consciousness beyond the three-dimensional world. Modern science is not yet in a condition to explain such experiences but it has lately reached a point where researchers have begun to perceive the direction of their work, especially in the field of the neuro-endocrinology of the brain and other researchers in psycho-somatic medicine: Is there any kind of 'genetic message' in the human seed that brings forth the consciousness mutation? If the process is an evolutionary one, what kind of energy operates the connection of the human attention with a higher level of awareness? Increasing references are been made to Kundalini-yoga: the yoga which awakens the residual consciousness with man. Various publications today are expressing the first astonishment of modern researchers in front of a realm that great saints have been exploring empirically for millennia and which can be expressed in secular terms as the world of maximization of energies. Many Westerners today are considering with a new interest the ancestral spiritual 'know-how' developed in India and are beginning to understand how these investigations were of central importance in the elaboration of the Asiatic world. The influence of the great spiritual masters was based upon a deep knowledge of the psychosomatic integration of human and super-human energies together with their ability to present this knowledge in a coherent theology. Indeed, they deeply determined the way Asiatics considered human destiny and thereby the way they considered what should be done about it.”

"Moreover these are special times. This is the Resurrection Time. The Last Judgment is done by the Kundalini. On the fingertips one can feel oneself and can judge oneself.

"Whatever one is doing now is relative in this modern world. In relative terms, everything is working it out. This relative working is not going to give any absolute results. Absolute knowledge only comes from the Spirit, and so unless we know the Self, the Spirit, we cannot know what is absolute and what is Absolute Truth. Otherwise, when we live in the relative world we will be always quarrelling, fighting and having wars. But if one is in the Absolute then one knows that there is only one Truth for everything, and there will be no more argument or discussion; everybody will enjoy that Truth as it is Absolute.”

You are born, say, to a Christian family, or you are born to a Hindu family, immediately you start thinking that you are there to uphold all the flags of that religion in which you are born. You are born in that religion without your knowledge, without your permission, without any understanding, so how can you belong to that religion?

THE APOCALYPSE OF THE SPIRIT-PARACLETE
The fulfillment of the promised divine eschatological instruction
“The original meaning of the word ‘apocalypse’, derived from the Greek apokalypsis, is in fact not the cataclysmic end of the world, but an ‘unveiling’, or ‘revelation’, a means whereby one gains insight into the present.” (Kovacs, 2013, 2) An apocalypse (Greek: apokalypsis meaning “an uncovering”) is in religious contexts knowledge or revelation, a disclosure of something hidden, “a vision of heavenly secrets that can make sense of earthly realities.” (Ehrman 2014, 59)
Shri Mataji
Shri Mataji Nirmala Devi (1923-2011) was Christian by birth, Hindu by marriage, and Paraclete by duty.
“The Paraclete will come (15:26; 16:7, 8, 13) as Jesus has come into the world (5:43; 16:28; 18:37)... The Paraclete will take the things of Christ (the things that are mine, ek tou emou) and declare them (16:14-15). Bishop Fison describes the humility of the Spirit, 'The true Holy Spirit of God does not advertise Herself: She effaces Herself and advertises Jesus.' ...
It is by the outgoing activity of the Spirit that the divine life communicates itself in and to the creation. The Spirit is God-in-relations. The Paraclete is the divine self-expression which will be and abide with you, and be in you (14:16-17). The Spirit's work is described in terms of utterance: teach you, didasko (14:26), remind you, hypomimnesko (14:26), testify, martyro (15:26), prove wrong, elencho (16:8), guide into truth, hodego (16:13), speak, laleo (16:13, twice), declare, anangello (16:13, 14, 15). The johannine terms describe verbal actions which intend a response in others who will receive (lambano), see (theoreo), or know (ginosko) the Spirit. Such speech-terms link the Spirit with the divine Word. The Spirit's initiatives imply God's personal engagement with humanity. The Spirit comes to be with others; the teaching Spirit implies a community of learners; forgetful persons need a prompter to remind them; one testifies expecting heed to be paid; one speaks and declares in order to be heard. The articulate Spirit is the correlative of the listening, Spirit-informed community.
The final Paraclete passage closes with a threefold repetition of the verb she will declare (anangello), 16:13-15. The Spirit will declare the things that are to come (v.13), and she will declare what is Christ's (vv. 14, 15). The things of Christ are a message that must be heralded...
The intention of the Spirit of truth is the restoration of an alienated, deceived humanity... The teaching role of the Paraclete tends to be remembered as a major emphasis of the Farewell Discourses, yet only 14:26 says She will teach you all things. (Teaching is, however, implied when 16:13-15 says that the Spirit will guide you into all truth, and will speak and declare.) Franz Mussner remarks that the word used in 14:26, didaskein, "means literally 'teach, instruct,' but in John it nearly always means to reveal.” (Stevick 2011, 292-7)

M. Bucaille, The Bible, the Qur'n, and Science

“And when Jesus foreannounced another Comforter, He must have intended a Person as distinct and helpful as He had been.”

Marianne Thompson, The God of the Gospel of John

Eric Eve, The Jewish context of Jesus' Miracles

“The remembrance is to relive and re-enact the Christ event, to bring about new eschatological decision in time and space.”
Daniel Rathnakara Sadananda, The Johannine Exegesis of God

“The Spirit acts in such an international situation as the revealer of 'judgment' on the powers that rule the world.”
Michael Welker, God the Spirit

Georg Strecker, Theology of the New Testament

“While the Spirit-Paraclete is the true broker, the brokers they rely on are impostors.”

Michael Welker, The work of the Spirit

Robert Kysar, Voyages with John

“The gift of peace, therefore, is intimately associated with the gift of the Spirit-Paraclete.”
Francis J. Moloney, The Gospel of John

“This utopian hope, even when modestly expressed, links Jesus and the prophets to a much wider history of human longing.”
Harvey Cox, The Future of Faith

“Because of the presence of the Paraclete in the life of the believer, the blessings of the end-times—the eschaton—are already present.”
Robert Kysar, John

“They are going, by the Holy Spirit's power, to be part of the greatest miracle of all, bringing men to salvation.”
R. Picirilli, The Randall House Bible Commentary

“The Kingdom of God stands as a comprehensive term for all that the messianic salvation included... 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).”
G. Ladd, A Theology of the New Testament


“But today is the day I declare that I am the one who has to save the humanity. I declare I am the one who is Adishakti, who is the Mother of all the Mothers, who is the Primordial Mother, the Shakti, the desire of God, who has incarnated on this Earth to give its meaning to itself; to this creation, to human beings and I am sure through My Love and patience and My powers I am going to achieve it.

I was the one who was born again and again. But now in my complete form and complete powers I have come on this Earth not only for salvation of human beings, not only for their emancipation, but for granting them the Kingdom of Heaven, the joy, the bliss that your Father wants to bestow upon you.”

Guest: “Hello Mother.”
Shri Mataji: “Yes.”
Guest: “I wanted to know, is the Cool Breeze (Pneuma) that you have spoken about, you feel on the hands the Cool Wind of the Holy Spirit, as spoken about in the Bible?”
Shri Mataji: “Yes. Yes, yes, same thing, same thing. You have done the good job now, I must say.”
Interviewer: “Is it the Holy Spirit?”
Shri Mataji: “Yes, of course, is the Holy Spirit.”
Guest: “Aha... I am feeling it now on my hand through the [not clear]”
Shri Mataji: “It’s good.”
Interviewer: “Did you want to say anything more than that?”
Guest: “No, I just... That’s all I wanted to know because I...”
Shri Mataji: “Because you are thoughtless now. Enjoy yourself.”
Guest: “Thank you.”

Second Guest: “I just want to ask Mother about a quotation from the Bible.”
Interviewer: “Yes, what’s that?”
Guest: “It says, ‘But the comfort of the Holy Spirit that the Father will send in My name would teach you all things.’ I would like to ask Her about that.”
Interviewer: “Could you just repeat the quotation again?”
Guest: “But the Comforter, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in My name, will teach you all things.”
Interviewer: “And that’s from where?”
Guest: “John chapter 14, verse 26.”
Shri Mataji: “I think you should take your realization and then you will know the answer to it. Because, logically if it points out to one person, then you have to reach the conclusion, isn’t it? That’s a logical way of looking at things. But I am not going to say anything or claim anything. It is better you people find out yourself.”
Interviewer: “Does that answer your question?”
Guest: “Is the, is the Comforter on the Earth at the present time? Has the Comforter incarnated? Mataji should be able to tell us this because She said that through these vibrations on Her hands, She ...”
Shri Mataji: “Yes, She is very much here and She’s talking to you now. Can you believe that?”
Guest: “Well, I feel something cool [Pneuma/Prana/Chi] on my hand. Is that some indication of the ...?”
Shri Mataji: “Yes, very much so. So that’s the proof of the thing. You’ve already started feeling it in your hands.”
Guest: “Can I?”
Shri Mataji: “Ask the question, ‘Mother, are you the Comforter?’”
Guest: “Mother, are you the Comforter?”
Shri Mataji: “Ask it thrice.”
Guest: “Mother, are you the Comforter?”
Shri Mataji: “Again.”
Guest: “Mother, are you the Comforter?”
Shri Mataji: “Now, what do you get?”
Guest: “Oh, I feel this kind of cool tingling [Pneuma/Prana/Chi] passing all through my body.”
Shri Mataji: “That’s the answer now.”

Shri Mataji Nirmala Devi (1923-2011): Christian by birth, Hindu by marriage and Paraclete by duty.
The Paraclete and the disciples (vv. 25-26): The theme of departure (cf. vv. 1-6; vv. 18-24) returns. There are two "times" in the experience of the disciples: the now as Jesus speaks to them (v. 25) and the future time when the Paraclete, the Holy Spirit, sent by the Father in the name of Jesus, will be with them (v. 26). The Paraclete will replace Jesus' physical presence, teaching them all things and recalling for them everything he has said (v. 26). As Jesus is the Sent One of the Father (cf. 4:34; 5:23; 24, 30, 37; 6:38-40; 7:16; 8:16, 18, 26; 12:44-49), so is the Paraclete sent by the Father. The mission and purpose of the former Paraclete, Jesus (cf. 14:13-14), who speaks and teaches "his own" will continue into the mission and purpose of the "other Paraclete" (cf. v. 16) who teaches and brings back the memory of all that Jesus has said. The time of Jesus is intimately linked with the time after Jesus, and the accepted meaning of a departure has been undermined. The inability of the disciples to understand the words and deeds of Jesus will be overcome as they "remember" what he had said (cf. 2:22) and what had been written of him and done to him (cf. 12:16). The "remembering" will be the fruit of the presence of the Paraclete with the disciples in the in-between-time. In v. 16 Jesus focused on the inability of the world to know the Paraclete, but in v. 26 the gift of the Paraclete to "his own" is developed. As Jesus was with the disciples (v. 25), so will the Paraclete be with the disciples in the midst of hostility and rejection (v. 16). As the story has insisted that Jesus' teaching has revealed God to his disciples, so will the Paraclete recall and continue Jesus' revelation of God to the disciples (v. 26).” (Harrington 1998, 412)

“This is the transformation that has worked, of which Christ has talked, Mohammed Sahib has talked, everybody has talked about this particular time when people will get transformed.”

“Today, Sahaja Yaga has reached the state of Mahayoga, which is en-masse evolution manifested through it. It is this day’s Yuga Dharma. It is the way the Last Judgment is taking place.

“The main thing that one has to understand is that the time has come for you to get all that is promised in the scriptures, not only in the Bible but all all the scriptures of the world. The time has come today that you have to become a Christian, a Brahmin, a Pir, through your Kundalini awakening only. There is no other way. And that your Last Judgment is also now.”

THE MOTHER: Messiah-Paraclete-Ruh


“You see, the Holy Ghost is the Mother. When they say about the Holy Ghost, She is the Mother... Now, the principle of Mother is in every, every scripture — has to be there. Now, the Mother's character is that She is the one who is the Womb, She is the one who is the Mother Earth, and She is the one who nourishes you. She nourishes us. You know that. And this Feminine thing in every human being resides as this Kundalini.”

“What are they awaiting but for the Hour to come upon them suddenly? Its Signs have already come. What good will their Reminder be to them when it does arrive?” (Qur'n, 47:18) “As the above verse indicates, God has revealed some of Doomsday's signs in the Qur'n. In Surat az-Zukhruf 43:61, God informs us that 'He [Jesus] is a Sign of the Hour. Have no doubt about it...' Thus we can say, based particularly on Islamic sources but also on the Old Testament and the New Testament, that we are living in the End Times.” Harun Yahya

[Moderator]: “Any other questions?”
[Audience]: “Pardon me for asking this question, but, earlier you talked about the Resurrection and you mentioned about the scriptures, where like in the Hindus scriptures they talk about the Kalki Avatar who will come for the Resurrection, and for the Christians, I know they talk about the return of Christ and all the religions talk about this Resurrection and the belief in the coming of the Messiah. So I just want to know since you say you are going to give the resurrection to us, what is your station?”

Shri Mataji: “In Russia?”
[Audience]: “And are you the promised Messiah? Shri Mataji, are you?”
Shri Mataji: “I see now I am not going to tell you anything about myself, to be very frank. Because see Christ said He was the Son of God, and they crucified Him. I don't want to get crucified. You have to find out. When you become the Spirit you will know what I am. I don't want to say anything about myself.”

“Jesus then goes on the offensive against the scribes and Pharisees, pronouncing seven woes against them (Matt. 23:1-36). The final woe identifiers them with all those in Israel's history who have murdered and opposed the prophets. From Abel to Zechariah, all the blood of the righteous will come on them as they typologically fulfill this pattern in the murder of Jesus (23:29-36). They are the wicked tenants who think to kill the son and take his inheritance (21:38). They are seed of the serpent, a brood of vipers (23:33). Their house (the temple?) is desolate, and they will not see Jesus again until they bless him as he comes in the name of the Lord (23:37-39). Somehow, through the judgments Jesus announces against them, salvation will apparently come even for the people of Israel. As Olmstead puts it, Matthew "dares to hope for the day when many of Israel's sons and daughters will embrace Israel's Messiah (23:39), and in that hope engages in a continued mission in her.”” Hamilton 2010, 377


“It is the Mother who can awaken the Kundalini, and that the Kundalini is your own Mother. She is the Holy Ghost within you, the Adi Shakti, and She Herself achieves your transformation. By any talk, by any rationality, by anything, it cannot be done.”

“She is your pure Mother. She is the Mother who is individually with you. Forget your concepts, and forget your identifications. Please try to understand She is your Mother, waiting for ages to give you your real birth. She is the Holy Ghost within you. She has to give you your realization, and She's just waiting and waiting to do it.”

“The Kundalini is your own mother; your individual mother. And She has tape-recorded all your past and your aspirations. Everything! And She rises because She wants to give you your second birth. But She is your individual mother. You don't share Her with anybody else. Yours is a different, somebody else's is different because the tape-recording is different. We say She is the reflection of the Adi Shakti who is called as Holy Ghost in the Bible.”

Press Conference July 08 1999—London, UK

The Great Goddess is both wholly transcendent and fully immanent: beyond space and time, she is yet embodied within all existent beings; without form as pure, infinite consciousness (cit) ... She is the universal, cosmic energy known as Sakti, and the psychophysical, guiding force designated as the Kundalini (Serpent Power) resident within each individual. She is eternal, without origin or birth, yet she is born in this world in age after age, to support those who seek her assistance. Precisely to provide comfort and guidance to her devotees, she presents herself in the Devi Gita to reveal the truths leading both to worldly happiness and to the supreme spiritual goals: dwelling in her Jeweled Island and mergence into her own perfect being.” (Brown, 1998, 2)
