"And when Jesus foreannounced another Comforter, He must have intended a Person as distinct and helpful as He had been."- F. B. Meyer

F. B. Meyer, Love to the Utmost

That word, 'another'—'He shall give you another Comforter'—is in itself sufficient to prove the Divinity and Personality of the Holy Ghost. If a man promises to send another as his substitute, we naturally expect to see a man like himself, occupying his place, and doing his work. And when Jesus foreannounced another Comforter, He must have intended a Person as distinct and helpful as He had been. A breath, an afflatus, an impersonal influence could not have stood in the same category as Himself.

There are those who think that the Holy Spirit is to the Lord what a man's spirit is to the body; and imagine that our Lord simply intended that the spirit of His life-teaching and self-sacrifice would brood over and inspire His followers; but this could not have fulfilled the promise of 'the other Comforter.' It would simply have been Himself over again, though no longer as a living Person; rather as the momentum and energy of a receding force which gets weaker and even weaker as the ages pass. Thus the spirit of Napoleon or of Caesar is becoming little more than a dim faint echo of footsteps that once shook the world.

Jesus knew how real and helpful He had been to His followers—the centre around which they had rallied; their Teacher, Brother, Master; and He would not have tantalized them by promising another Paraclete, unless He had intended to announce the advent of One who would adjust to their needs with that quickness of perception, and sufficiency of resource, which characterize a personal Leader and Administrator. There were times approaching when the little band would need counsel, direction, sympathy, the interpretation of a strong wise Hand—qualities which could not be furnished by the remembrance of the past, fading like colors on clouds when the sun has set; and which could only be secured by the presence of a strong, wise, ever-present Personality. 'I have been one Paraclete,' said the Lord in effect; 'but I am going to plead your cause with the Father, that another Paraclete may take My place, to be My other self, and to bide with you forever.'"

The Paraclete Or Coming World Mother
"And that is what I expect; a demonstration of the power and majesty of God in the fragrant beauty of an earthly, feminine form, a comforting, womanly presence whose mission will be far more effectively carried out because it presents the most unexpected deliverance." — Johanna Brandt

The Paraclete OR Coming World Mother
"The Message of the Comforter does not detract in any way from the teachings of Jesus the Christ. It does not encroach on the long-established system of organised, orthodox belief. On the contrary, the World Mother is coming into physical manifestation at this critical time to expound the teachings of the Christ, to present them in a form that will be acceptable to all God's children, to draw the peoples of the earth together, to unite, to bind, to gather the scattered flocks of the human family; to function as the Comforter of the world during the period described in the Scriptures as 'the last tribulations,' and to prepare the physical bodies of the human race to receive the Spirit of Christ.

All this is in the strict accord with Bible prophecy. No mention is made of the visible presence of our Lord on earth during the great tribulations, but special emphasis is laid on the fact that He will come soon after. In the 24th Chapter of St. Matthew in the 29th and 30th verses the order of events to be expected is put so clearly that there is no mistaking it: 'Immediately after the tribulations of those days shall the sun be darkened, and the moon shall not give her light, and the stars shall fall from heaven, and the powers of the heavens shall be shaken; and then shall appear the sign of the Son of Man in heaven; and then shall all the tribes of the earth mourn, and they shall see the Son of Man coming in the clouds of heaven with power and great glory.'

Instead of speculating on the time and manner of His Coming, we should be preparing to meet the 'tribulations' and to make ourselves worthy to receive Him when He comes. By watching the signs of the times and studying the teachings of thousands of inspired souls I think we may safely conclude that a change of some sort is pending. No matter what our beliefs may be the atmosphere is pregnant with meaning, and if we accept the prophecies of the Scriptures to the effect that Jesus the Christ will not be here in manifestation to our physical senses to help us through the crisis (whatever it may be) then the question confronts us whether we are to be utterly forsaken and deserted in a time of peril and confusion? We have no earthly leader in whom we can put our full confidence; on the contrary, the leaders in every department of life have reached the point of despair in their helplessness. But why all this despair? Did Jesus not promise to send us help? Did He not distinctly say, 'I will pray the Father, and He shall give you another Comforter?' (St. John 14, vs. 16.) This throws a flood of light on the subject - it is the Comforter, the Holy Spirit, who will lead us through the abyss.

The only difference between the teachings of this little book and those of the Scriptures lies in the fact that the writer sees the Holy Spirit in the garb of a Woman, a Mother. Time alone will show us whether this is correct or not. No one who is under a delusion is mentally equipped to create the form of a mighty Being who is able to manifest among men as a leader, able to give expression to the powers of the Spirit in prophecy, in healing, in telepathy, in working the signs and wonders and miracles which we are wont to associate with the life of Jesus, and Jesus alone, in spite of the fact that He said 'The works that I do shall ye do also; and greater works than these shall ye do.'

A modern Messiah who is able to save the situation at the eleventh hour would naturally manifest in such irresistible power that all our reasoning will be swept away. And that is what I expect; a demonstration of the power and majesty of God in the fragrant beauty of an earthly, feminine form, a comforting, womanly presence whose mission will be far more effectively carried out because it presents the most unexpected deliverance. I have asked myself a thousand times why the identity of the Mother has been concealed throughout the ages and this is the only explanation that has occurred to me—that a most unusual, most powerful stroke of Divine Genius would be necessary to pave the remnant destined to survive the ordeal. Otherwise 'no flesh' will be saved. The revelation of the Cosmic Mother as Comforter and the arming of the nations on an unprecedented scale occur at the same time in the history of the world. This is no coincidence."

Johanna Brandt, The Paraclete OR Coming World Mother, 1936, pp. 4-5

"The 'Holy Spirit' was considered feminine as reflected by the feminine gender of ruach, the Hebrew word for 'spirit' or 'breath.' In Latin, the translation of Holy Spirit into 'Spiritus Sanctus' took on a masculine form and connotation not found in Greek or Aramaic. So the Christian formulation of the Holy Spirit as the third person of an all-male Trinity, the 'Spiritus Sanctus,' caused the ruach of the Hebrew Scriptures (and of Jesus) to lose her feminine identity, although her attributes of life-giving water-bringer, comforter, and travelling companion (paraclete) remained feminine." Starbird (2003) 56

And I will ask the Father, and he will give you another paraclete, to be with you forever' John 14:16.

S. Rambo and C. Keller, Spirit and Trauma: A Theology of Remaining
[1]"And I will ask the Father, and he will give you another paraclete, to be with you forever' John 14:16... The paraclete is not merely a substitute for Jesus while he is absent. The role of the paraclete, as Jesus describes it, exceeds this. The paraclete will carry forward the disciples while maintaining their link to Jesus. "I have said these things to you while I am still with you.' Jesus says. 'But the paraclete, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in my name, will teach you everything, and remind you of all that I have said to you' (John 14:25-26). The paraclete takes up residence in them and provides a critical link between past, present, and future....

Second, up to this point, Jesus has been describing the relationship between the disciples and God; he introduces here a new relationship that the disciples will have with the world. When the paraclete comes, the paraclete will come as a witness. 'When the paraclete comes, whom I will send to you from the Father, the Spirit of truth that comes from the Father, will testify on my behalf" (John 15:26). Again the paraclete is introduced as the Spirit of truth. This Spirit testifies on behalf of Jesus and does so in the face of the world and its opposition to [the paraclete]. The paraclete will transform them, as well, into witnesses (John 15:27). In this chapter, housing the paraclete is not static. Instead, the spirit's residence within them transform them into witnesses.”

[1]"In her function as Paraclete the Breath will abide with the disciples as She abode with Jesus. Indeed, She will abide with them forever (Jn. 14:16). As She dwelt with Jesus, She will now dwell with them. Through Her indwelling, the disciples will know Her with a new intimacy." Gelpi (1984) 56

[1]"However, in the first Paraclete saying, Jesus promises that the Paraclete will be the 'new' advocate' to dwell within his disciples always: 'I will ask the Father and he will give you another Advocate to be with you always, the Spirit of Truth ... [who] will be in you.' (John 14:16-17) So the Spirit of Truth is a Paraclete precisely because [she] carries on the earthly works of Jesus who is the first Paraclete (1 John 2:1). And Jesus immediately indicates that the Paraclete will be a permanent presence: 'I shall not leave you orphans.' (v. 18) Jesus' whole point in this first saying is simply to promise the permanent dwelling of the Spirit of Truth within the disciples as their new teacher in his way. In the other four Paraclete sayings, Jesus describes what the new life of the Spirit will mean to all his disciples.”

[1]"'Parakletos,' often printed in English as 'Paraclete,' challenges the translator of John's gospel. Major translations render it as 'Comforter' (KJV), 'Helper' (NASB), 'Advocate' (NRSV) and 'Counselor' (NIV). The Greek word itself contains all those meanings, describing one who is summoned to the aid of another. 'Helper' may be the better translation, allowing the context to describe the specific kind of help being offered (advocacy, comfort or counsel). Some commentators do not translate the word at all, simply bringing it into English as Paraclete, as we do with other Greek words like 'baptism' or 'deacon.'

In many ways, the role of the Paraclete is to continue the ministry of Jesus to his disciples. Jesus introduces the Spirit as another' Paraclete, implying he himself had been the first (14:16). As Jesus is the Truth (14:6) and bears witness to the Truth (18:37), the Paraclete is 'the Spirit of Truth' (14:17) who testifies as well (15:26-27). Just as Jesus is 'the Holy One of God' (6:69), the Spirit is 'the Holy Spirit' (14:26).

Jesus has 'come into the world' (5:43), and now promises the Paraclete will come as well (16:8). The Spirit 'comes forth' from the Father (15:26), just as Jesus has come forth from the Father. The Father gives the Paraclete at Jesus' request (14:16), just as the Father has given his Son (3:16). The Father who sent Jesus (3:17) will send the Spirit as well (14:26). Jesus came in the Father's name (5:43) and the Paraclete comes in Jesus' name (14:26). As Jesus spoke only what the Father told him (14:10), so the Spirit would reveal Jesus' words (16:13). Jesus glorified the Father (14:13; 17:4), and the Paraclete will glorify Jesus (16:14). In many ways, the Paraclete is to Jesus as Jesus is to the Father.

The Paraclete will play a significant role in the lives of Jesus' followers. They will be privileged to know the Paraclete, as they have known Jesus (14:7, 9, 17). The Spirit will be within the disciples and will remain with them, as Jesus remains in and with his friends (14:20, 23; 15:4-5; 17:23, 26). The Spirit will guide the disciples along the way of truth (16:13), even as Jesus is the Way and the Truth (14:6). Jesus has taught those who would listen (6:59; 7:14, 18; 8:20), and now the Paraclete will do the teaching (16:12-15). The Spirit will empower disciples to testify to Jesus (15:26-27; 20:21-23).

The Spirit also has an important role to play in relation to the world. The world that did not accept Jesus will not accept the Paraclete (5:43; 12:48; 14:17). The world that did not recognize Jesus (7:28; 8:14, 19; 14:7; 16:3) will not recognize his Spirit either (14:17). Like Jesus, the Paraclete will bear witness in the context of the world's hatred (7:7; 15:26-27). And the Paraclete ultimately proves the world wrong concerning its verdict on Jesus (16:8-11). Jesus' "Advocate" will become the prosecuting attorney bringing the world to trial before the bar of Truth.”

[1]"Jesus is promising to send the Spirit of truth to make a home within us, to become, as Brown notes, 'a way of life or something that penetrates [our] very being.' How, then, might we describe the turn toward a new direction for gospel living, the calling to discover what is deepest in the human soul in order to find God in the midst of life.

A summons to a way of life that allows the Spirit of truth to penetrate our very being is a call to a continuous process of aletheia, the Greek name for truth. Aletheia means unconcealing, uncovering such as is done in theological reflection, an art that one could argue is 5 percent our effort and 95 percent the guidance of the Paraclete. Such an effort on our part requires openness to learning the truth and personal engagement with the mystery of grace, an attitude of receptivity and a sense of awe. The trouble is, we live in a culture that offers us little assistance in the art of seeking truth and grace in life.”

Feasting on the Word: Preaching the Revised Common Lectionary
David L. Bartlett, Barbara Brown Taylor, p. 23

[1]"Jesus tells the disciples in John 14:15-17 that the Spirit will be given to those who love Him. Their ability to love Jesus comes from the enabling new birth by the Spirit (John 3:3-8). This regeneration then manifests itself in love for Jesus, which results in obedience. Thus, John 14:15-17 fits with John 7:39, where those who have believed (i.e., those who have been born again) are described as those who are about to receive the Spirit. The purpose of the Father's gift of the Paraclete is 'that [the Spirit] might be with you forever' (14:16). The reason for the Paraclete's coming is that they might continue to enjoy God's presence forever. As Barret correctly concludes, 'The Spirit is given in order that the divine presence maybe with the disciples continually ...' Jesus is giving His disciples reason to trust Him (14:1) and so tells them that they will continue to experience God's presence (14:15-17, 20-23).

The identity of "Another Paraclete" (allon parakleton) in v. 16 is given by the appositional phrase beginning v. 17, 'the spirit of truth' (to pneuma tes altetheias). Most scholars agree that 'Spirit of truth,' 'Holy Spirit,' and 'Paraclete' are all used to designate the Spirit of God in John. Most also agree that the designation another Paraclete' implies that Jesus has served as a Paraclete for the disciples and that it is because of His departure that He will ask the Father to provide for them another Paraclete.'"

God's Indwelling Presence: The Holy Spirit in the Old and New Testaments
James M. Hamilton, Jr., B&H Academic (August 1, 2006), pp. 75-76

[1]"In concert with Bultmann's emphasis on revelation, some scholars have argued that the Paraclete is John's vehicle for assuring his readers that either Jesus' own words were not forgotten (14:26) or that new prophetic revelation will continue (16:13). B. Olsson sees in John 14:25 two stages in the revelatory work of Christ. Jesus spoke plainly to the disciples and yet there will still be a need for 'll things' to be taught again by the Paraclete (14:26). 'The Paraclete will realize all Jesus' sayings to the disciples, will interpret them in their situation and thus give rise to new heights and experiences.' Texts such as John 2:22 and 12:16 suggest that Jesus tradition has not only been recalled but recalled correctly, through the work of the Spirit (2:22; 12:16; 14:26; cf. Luke 22:44-45). According to two lengthy studies by A. Kothgasser, the Spirit has become the authority and motive for John's own Gospel. John's message is therefore a 'thoroughgoing recollection by the Spirit; a new insight, understanding, and experience of the entire reality of Christ.'"

"The Comforter will be an incarnation of the Holy Spirit as Jesus was of the Spirit of Christ. As Cosmic Mother She holds a superior position, far beyond the conception of a finite mind, and it will no more be possible for us to understand Her character and functions than if She represented the Creator Himself. It is on that account that Jesus said that the Comforter, when She comes, would not speak of Herself.”

The Messiah-Paraclete
“Normally I don't tell about Myself but today he exposed me. As soon as I came I had to tell because it's not tactful. It's not tactful to say anything. It's better that you discover Me than I tell you because Christ was crucified, everybody was tortured. I do not want to hamper My work because it makes no difference by telling you anything before Realization. It's better to tell you after Realization that I am the Holy Ghost—no doubt. I am the one about which Christ has talked.

I have told them. I had never said this on from a platform and I told. They have been telling Me, 'Mother, You must say that once.' I said, 'In America I'll declare it.' So today I declare that I am the Holy Ghost. I am the Holy Spirit who has incarnated on this Earth for your realization.”

Dear disciples of Shri Mataji,

Namaste - I bow to the Spirit-Paraclete who resides in you!

Thanks Isabelle. I just love the photo and Her promise. It will now remain permanently here, and I will explain why in the next paragraph.

Since 1994* I know what that promise truly meant. I have been defending and holding on to that truth for the last 17 years. Now, with Her Mahasamadhi, it is a source of great comfort, strength and resolve. I wish all Her disciples grasp the truth and reality of "Tat Twam Asi", the deeper meaning of that quote! Lord Jesus is telling you the same when He says the Spirit-Paraclete will remain with you forever.[1]

For those who have followed Shri Mataji the world over for the last four decades to listen to Her Good News of the Kingdom of God, and for those who also intimately experienced the Spirit-Paraclete within themselves in vivid visions and dreams, this quote is most comforting:

"The Spirit will be ... the helper, comforter, counselor, and companion that Jesus has been. Indeed, nearly everything said about the Paraclete has been said elsewhere in the Gospel about Jesus. Only one difference emerges: the word 'forever.' Unlike Jesus, the Paraclete/Spirit will not go away but will remain with the disciples forever. Jesus, the Word made flesh, lived on this earth in one time and place. The Paraclete dwells within every believer for all times and in all places, and is thus a more intimate and enduring presence." (Frances 2009, 103)

The Paraclete Shri Mataji continues to remain with us, but in a more intimate and enduring presence within. She has given irrefutable evidence of that internal presence too, so that future believers will have the faith and comfort of salvation. She now dwells within, for all times, thereby fulfilling everything promised by Jesus!

Please meditate on this reality as deeply as you can, daily if possible. That would be just before going to sleep, which I find to be the best time to lose 'consciousness' (fall asleep) .......... and awaken again in consciousness (at dawn).

i also wish to thank all for contributing and sharing their thoughts. I wish all of you a beautiful journey into eternity. May Her photo and promise always give you the comfort of The Mother within.



“So these realised souls are all over and they are helping. They never enter into anybody, they never trouble you, they guide you to the proper lines, they bring their angels and they help you to come to the right path, to the right conclusions. And they never try to possess you, they never try to hypnotise you, or take you to the wrong side of life. So when you are realised also, you must know that you have to know completely what is the Reality." The Paraclete Shri Mataji (February 3, 1983—New Delhi, India)

*On December 25, 2012 this quote of Swami Sivananda Radha regarding the Divine Mother (Sri Tripurasundari, the World-Mother, who is also Raja-rajesvari and Lalita Devi)—on which this site is grounded and the basis of "No rules, no rituals, no rulers"—was added. Those who believe in the Spirit-Paraclete/Divine Mother/Devi and wish to merge with Her from within themselves, you may attain that through Her Baptism/Self-realization/ Kundalini Awakening which triggers the manifestation. The Divine Mother, the Adi Kundalini, will be the Guru who will initiate the aspirant and transmit the Divine Sakti:

Kundalini Yoga for the West
"Aspirants think that the world is identical with the Divine Mother. They move about thinking their own form to be the form of the Divine Mother and thus behold oneness everywhere. They also feel that the Divine Mother is identical with Parabrahman.

Advanced aspirants feel, 'I am the Devi and the Devi is in me.' They worship themselves as Devi instead of adoring any external object. They say, 'Saham'/'I am She' (Devi, Divine Mother). Saktism is not mere theory or philosophy. It prescribes systematic practice of yoga, regular discipline according to the temperament, capacity and degree of evolution of the seeker. It helps the aspirant to arouse the Kundalini ... to enjoy the Supreme Bliss of Nirvikalpa Samadhi. When Kundlaini sleeps, we are awake to the world. We have objective consciousness. When She awakes, we sleep. We lose all consciousness of the world and become one with the Lord...

A guru is indispensable for the practice of Sakti Yoga Sadhana, to initiate the aspirant and transmit the Divine Sakti...

Worship of the Divine Mother with intense faith and perfect devotion and self-surrender will help you to attain Her grace. Through Her grace alone you can attain knowledge of the Imperishable.

Glory to Sri Tripurasundari, the World-Mother, who is also Raja-rajesvari and Lalita Devi. May Her blessings be upon you all!"

If you are a disciple of Shri Mataji grounded in the Resurrection, then you will, without doubt, rid yourself of all doubts.

August 28, 2017

Dear Pamela, Violet, Shruti, Gerlinde and all,

We will start tomorrow as today was a busy day.

The reason I have addressed all the women by name is that the opening is an awakening to all of them, a view that by reason of Jesus choice of the Paraclete is long due. That it is at the begins the preface of Mackenzie's The Devi Gita is coincidence, but a fitting start.

i am really looking forward to starting a long overdue journey to complete The Devi Gita that is central to the Resurrection. That Shri Mataji, a Christian by birth, spent nearly four decades completing the message of Jesus is also central to the Resurrection. That is why only those taking part in the Resurrection will understand this, and that the Spirit/Paraclete now dwells within them for all times:

"The Spirit will be ... the helper, comforter, counselor, and companion that Jesus has been. Indeed, nearly everything said about the Paraclete has been said elsewhere in the Gospel about Jesus. Only one difference emerges: the word 'forever.' Unlike Jesus, the Paraclete/Spirit will not go away but will remain with the disciples forever. Jesus, the Word made flesh, lived on this earth in one time and place. The Paraclete dwells within every believer for all times and in all places, and is thus a more intimate and enduring presence."

Note: I will dedicate the start of this undertaking--the final ascent and our triumph to the Divine Peak that is The Devi Gita--to Violet. She has given me unwavering and unconditional support over the years, so needed by me during some very 'dark days' over the years. In fact the forum became grounded when she joined early 2006, more than a decade ago. If not for her, it would not have reached the critical level the forum is today. That it is now engaged in The Devi Gita is perhaps the highest recognition that can be given, and this quote epitomises it:

"i really cannot explain better other than to say that we must be comforted by HER presence within us ................................ and that the other 80% would be to understand what SHE means by there being no difference between HER and us, and that we are actually HER!"

Today we have a core group of women and Pamela perhaps came just in time to witness and be part and parcel of this awakening. Even during the time of Jesus women were attracted by His message and He had very high regards for them ...................... perhaps even more than men. That they remained behind while the Savior's male disciples fled the crucifixion should make those women here to continue supporting His message--delivered through the Paraclete Shri Mataji--just as proud.

i am very happy to start The Devi Gita with that in mind. This is indeed the Millennium of the Holy Spirit, the Age that has come!

Jesus: "Anyone who speaks a word against the Son of Man will be forgiven, but anyone who speaks against the Holy Spirit will not be forgiven, either in this age or in the age to come." Matthew 12:32

Thank you very much for accepting me in your journey. I feel joyful and humble and thank Violet for make this possible by supporting Jagbir, therefore making this possible. This comes at the moment I was feeling totally alone trying to find a way to expand and debating my growth or luck of in Sahaja. Pamela.

Note: No matter what religion one follows it is always a masculine god that comes into mind. Naturally. God is always male and mighty, a physical trait that reflects human existence. Women are the weaker sex in every sense of the word, intelligence and leadership included. This view is still prevalent ..................... and I am talking about the West.

When I started in 1993 I never knew the extent my perception of that all-mighty masculine god would change. It took me many years of countless cross-examinations of all the scriptures of Hinduism, Buddhism, Sikhism, Judaism, Christianity, and Islam to come to a firm conviction (ironically, backed by the 'patriarchal' scriptures) that the Ultimate Reality is a SHE.

That assurance and infallibility of a Divine Feminine did not come easy. It was on many occasions tempered with 'fear' ............ the fear that I may be mistaken. It was only after years that I finally could say it loud to myself, and then to others here: God is the PRIMORDIAL MOTHER and SHE is embedded in all the holy scriptures.

However, given the above opening paragraphs of the Preface, it is clear that she (the PRIMORDIAL MOTHER) is just a mere footnote in Hinduism history, a feminine personality lost in the sands of time. To the other religions of Buddhism and Sikhism whose birth also took place in India there is not even that. To those Abrahamic religions centered in Jerusalem that would be blasphemy today ......................... and death for centuries.

The Devi Gita will assure us that the PRIMORDIAL MOTHER is everything, far over and above the doctrines and dogma of the gods of Hinduism, Buddhism, Sikhism, Judaism, Christianity, and Islam. The fact that none of these gods are embedded in the other scriptures/religions should be enough to never, ever, return to the temples, gurdwaras, churches, synagogues, mosques of ignorance, hate, bigotry, division, ....., ....., ....., .....

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)

“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: “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.”

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)

“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. Announce it to all the seekers of truth, to all the nations of the world, so that nobody misses the blessings of the divine to achieve their meaning, their absolute, their Spirit.”

“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.”

“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.

“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)
