The Time of Resurrection
"The Kingdom of God that we were promised is at hand. This is not a phrase out of a sermon or a lecture, but it is the actualization of the experience of the highest Truth which is Absolute, now manifesting itself in ordinary people at this present moment."
"Now about Christ, I think greatest message of Christ is His resurrection. This is resurrection, that He showed what Krishna has said in His lifetime, that the spirit doesn't die, it cannot be killed, it cannot be blown out, it has to rise, and it rises. Whatever you may try, it is eternal, and that is what Christ has proved by His resurrection. But by His resurrection He has achieved a great thing, which Hindus do not know and the Christians have not carried the message because they also do not know."
Public Program, Melbourne, Australia—April 6, 1981
"Tell all the nations and tell all the people all over the Great Message that the Time of Resurrection is here. Now, at this time, and that you are capable of doing it."
Cowley Manor Seminar, UK—July 31, 1982
"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."
Chistmas Puja, Ganapatipule, India—25 December 1997
"The Resurrection of Christ has to now be collective resurrection. This is what is Mahayoga. Has to be the collective resurrection."
Easter Puja, London, UK—11 April 1982
"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 the scriptures of the world."
"I bow to all the seekers of truth. The seekers of truth is a very special category of people. They've existed in all the centuries before also. And you find glimpses of that in many literary work. Today I read a book written by Ayala from Spain who was there in 1906. And he had described a seeker of truth how he became a saint.
William Blake from England, about hundred years back he lived, has said that, 'The time will come when many seekers of truth will be born. They are the men of God, they will be transformed, and they will have powers to transform others'.
This transformation is what we call is the birth which takes place second time. It is not just a certificate we should have from some institution that we are born again. Or we have become a twice born person, as we call in India a Brahmin, who thinks that he is really baptized. But the real baptism is a happening.
Recently there has been a very beautiful discovery of Saint Thomas's writings who was a disciple of Christ and on his way to India he wrote a beautiful description of what a saint should be, and what Christ wanted us to be, in a very large book, and put it in a jar in Egypt. This book was recovered only 48 years back and has been again deciphered by a very good gentleman who came out with the book call Gnostic. Now Gna in Sanskrit language also means to know. To know on your central nervous system. Is not a mental knowledge. By reading books you cannot become a realized soul. It is not a mental achievement. That's exactly what Saint Thomas has written that it is not a mental thing.
That it has to be a happening within us by which we know our Self, we get our real baptism. He's against all kinds of theories of sufferings. He says Christ has suffered for us. We have to just awaken Christ within us. And God Almighty is a Father who is so much full of compassion and love for His children. Why should He make you suffer?
Logically one should understand if Christ had suffered for us are we going to suffer more than Christ had suffered? Has He left something undone that we have to suffer any more? He suffered because there was a problem in the human awareness. People were lost in ritualism and in philosophic discussions. So His message was that of Resurrection. That is being clearly shown if you see the Sistine Chapel in Vatican you see a huge, big Christ sitting there and judging people and giving them resurrection. So the time has come for us, all of us, to enter into the Kingdom of God. Now the time has come. This is the Blossom Time that many have to become the fruits."
Geneva, Switzerland, 11 August 1988
The Paraclete Shri Mataji "Sahasrara (Kingdom of God) is the most beautiful part of your being. It is a big lotus with one thousand petals of different colors appearing like inflated flames...
Sahasrara is your awareness; when it is enlightened you get into the techniques of the Divine. Now there are two techniques, the techniques of the Divine, and the techniques you follow. You cannot act as the Divine, but you can use the Divine power to manoeuvre it.
For example, the Divine looks after all the universal happenings. Every minutest particle is controlled by the Divine. When your Sahasrara opens out, and your Kundalini touches the fontanelle bone, a sort of lightening force is ready in your Sahasrara; and as soon as the fontanelle bone area opens up in the Sahasrara, the grace of the spirit ignites that igniting force and your nadis (channels) get enlightened. Not all of them, but quite a lot of them; not all the length, but quite the peripheries. That is how you get your enlightenment.
So many things happen because of your seven centres being in the Sahasrara, with the light you see their relative positions. I mean your mind, your conscious mind feels that integration within you. The rationality that is separated from the heart becomes one with the heart. It becomes one with your attention. Wherever your attention goes you act in a collective way. All the activities in your attention are blessed. Your attention itself is effective. Your attention is very important. Your desires are even more important because it is such an integrated thing; your desires and your attention becomes one. Whatever is good for the spirit, you desire."
Sahasrara (Kingdom of God), Paris, France, May 5, 1982
"The Devi Gita, or Song of the Goddess, presents a grand vision of the universe created, pervaded, and protected by a supremely powerful, all-knowing, and wholly compassionate divine female. She is Mahadevi or the Great Goddess, known to her most devoted followers as the auspicious Mother-of-the-World (jagad-ambika, jagan-matr). Unlike the ferocious and horrific Hindu goddesses such as Kali and Durga, the World-Mother of the Devi Gita is benign and beautiful, though some of her lesser manifestations may take on terrifying forms. And unlike other beneficent divinities such as Parvati and Laksmi, she is subject to no male consort." (Brown 1998, 1)
"The most important aspect of the human subtle anatomy is kundalini, a term found in most schools of thought of India (White. 1979). It is called by different names in other traditions: the Kon tribe of the Kalahari call it the N-um. The ancient Sumerians called it Ningish Zeda, which literally means the 'Serpent God,' and the Mayans call it Kukulcan. Kundalini means 'the coiled one.' It is the universal energy which in its outer function sustains life in every individual, though in its inner spiritual nature usually remains dormant. It cannot be found in the physical body. Once experienced in deep states of meditation, it appears as a brilliant shimmering white light energy. It is coiled 3 1/2; times at the base of the spine in the subtle body, hence it derives its name. Often, as in Egyptian and Hindu art, it is represented as a coiled snake or a cobra, the king of all snakes. In its outer aspect, kundalini sustains us through all biological processes. In its inner aspect, kundalini is the same energy that brings about the creation of all worlds. In its universal function it is the Supreme Creative aspect of Universal Consciousness, Paramashiva, cosmic creative energy that becomes everything and anything in the manifold Universe. In our subtle body this energy lies dormant, waiting to be awakened in the aspirant for his or her return journey back to the transcendent state in the finite light of sahasrara.
The concept of universal energy or Kundalini is found in all spiritual traditions, although often alluded to in apocryphal terms and under different names. In Chinese tradition, the universal energy is known as Chi. In the Japanese tradition as Ki. In Christianity as the Holy Spirit. Different traditions, different paths, different cultures all refer in different ways to the same basic foundation of all creative energy.
The subtle energy bodies do not have veins and arteries, bones, blood and body fluids. They are pure energy circulating through millions of subtle channels called the nadis. The awakened kundalini spreads through the nadis and purifies all bodies. As the bodies are freed from blockages, a new dimension of human perception opens. One becomes certain, beyond intellectual pronouncements, that all knowledge is contained within. This 'turning within' or looking in is the seat of evolution for the human species...
Turning within is also an eternal journey, for eternity is not a long period of time. It is no time, where time collapses. The physical body is subject to time; we are born, grow older and die as time goes on. Time, however, does not exist in the same way at other levels of consciousness. It becomes distorted at the subtle dream state, seems to disappear at the deep sleep state and becomes eternity at the transcendent state.
As the kundalini climbs the ladder of evolution along the spine, the journey becomes more and more refined and also more and more difficult and demanding. The temptations of the ego become subtle and harder to resist. Many begin the journey, but very few go far along the upward spiritual ladder. Even fewer reach the top. Complete, absolute impeccability in thoughts, emotions and feelings are needed for that. Nothing can be hidden; there are no secrets between the aspirant and his or her own inner energy, the kundalini.
When the journey is completed, the aspirant's inner state is completely transformed. How to facilitate that process is the subject of all mystical traditions, the true subject of all religions, and the intent of all great spiritual teachers throughout all times."

"Now what is the relationship of that supreme consciousness to the world of human experience? Without Self-realization, humans live, deluded, in a universe projected by Mahamaya, who is both 'the great goddess and the great demoness' (DM 1.77). The universe is a kaleidoscope of limitless possibility, of breathtaking beauty and appalling horror, where life oscillates between pleasure and pain, happiness and misery, success and failure. In such a world, the necessity arises for making choices. If Medha's initial characterization of the Devi in her tamasic aspect inspires philosophical contemplation on the nature of reality, his depiction of her in her rajasic aspect inspires the vision of a goddess actively involved in her creation. Here she has the twofold nature of a compassionate mother worthy of devotion and a protective warrior intent on the victory of good over evil." (Devadatta 2005, 19)
"Thompson compares the presence of Jesus, Spirit and the Father with the disciples. She argues: 'Just as Jesus does not 'replace' the Father, but rather, makes the Father known, testifies to him and discloses him, so the Spirit does not 'replace' Jesus but makes Jesus known, testifies to him and discloses him to the disciples. In this manner, the Spirit does not replace Jesus, or even become the real presence of Jesus: the Spirit makes the presence of Jesus real. Thompson sees the Paraclete distinct from Jesus in the sense that they are not identical. However, according to her, it is in the Paraclete that the presence of the risen Jesus becomes real." (Thettayil 2007, 144)
"The Holy Spirit: Breath of God... The interesting part of this is the Hebrew word for spirit is ruach, and it means 'air in motion.' It is the same word for 'breath.' It also means 'life.' By resemblance to breath and air in motion, it means 'spirit.' That's where we get the translation, and the Hebrew word contains all those different meanings. If we just leave it with our English word 'spirit,' we're not getting the full attributes of what the Bible is trying to describe. It's trying to describe that there's a breath involved. Let's take this into the New Testament because we have almost the same thing where Jesus is talking about the Holy Spirit. He says, 'That which is born of the flesh is flesh, and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit. Do not marvel that I said to you, 'You must be born again.' The wind blows where it wishes, and you hear the sound of it, but cannot tell where it comes from and where it goes. So is everyone who is born of the Spirit' (John 3:8). Jesus is talking about the Holy Spirit, and He's saying it is like wind. When you get into the Greek behind that, the Greek word is pneuma, which again means 'a current of air,' 'breath,' or a 'breeze,' and again by analogy, 'a spirit.' So both the Hebrew and the Greek word are talking about breath. It's talking about wind." (Gordon Robertson, The Holy Spirit: Breath of God Web. 27 January 2013)
"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)
"Indeed, Jesus taught that his messiahship and the corresponding outpouring of the Spirit were firmly rooted in OT understanding (Luke 4:18ff., citing Isa. 61:1-2), and, similar to intertestamental Judaism, understood the messianic Spirit of the Lord to be the Holy Spirit (Matt. 12:32), the spirit which had foretold through the prophets that the coming Messiah would inaugurate the age of salvation with the pouring out of the Spirit on all flesh."
