"A resurrection of a dead corpse brings the person back into the world"

“Of course there are some absurd things which grew with misinterpretation and interference from unholy people, which are common in these religions. For example, Jews, Christian and Muslims believe that when they die their bodies will come out of their graves and they will all be resurrected at the Time of Resurrection, at the Time of Last Judgment, at the Time of Qiyamah. It is illogical to think what will remain inside those graves after five hundred years. Nobody wants to think and understand that it is not the body but the soul that will come out of these bodies, be born again as human beings and be saved through Qiyamah and Resurrection.”- The Paraclete Shri Mataji

Gospel of Judas text
Gospel of Judas text

A resurrection of the body is the very last thing that Jesus, or any of his true followers, would want

'It will strike many readers as odd that the Gospel of Judas ends where it does, with the so-called betrayal. But it makes perfect sense given the views otherwise advanced in the book. The death of Jesus is a forgone conclusion: All that is needed is the means by which it will occur, and Judas does his part in making sure it will happen. That is why he exceeds all the others.

There will be no resurrection. This is perhaps the key point of all. Jesus will not be raised from the dead in this book. Why would he be? The entire point of salvation is to escape this material world. A resurrection of a dead corpse brings the person back into the world of the creator. Since the point is to allow the soul to leave this world behind and to enter into "that great and holy generation"—that is, the divine realm that transcends this world—a resurrection of the body is the very last thing that Jesus, or any of his true followers, would want.

View of Salvation

That, of course, is the goal of Jesus' true followers as well. This world and all its trappings are to be transcended. That can occur when the soul learns the truth of its origin and destination, and then escapes from the material prison of the body.

This teaching becomes clear in a key conversation between Judas and Jesus, in which "this" generation—that is, the race of people here on earth—is contrasted with "that" generation, the realm of the divine beings. Some people belong to this generation, some to that one. Those with the divine element within belong to that one; only they can be saved when they die. When the others—of "this" generation— die, that will be the end of their story. As Jesus says,

The souls of every human generation will die. When these people [i.e., those who belong to the realm above], however, have completed the time of the kingdom and the spirit leaves them, their bodies will die but their souls will be alive, and they will be taken up.

In this way of understanding, humans consist of a body, a spirit, and a soul. The body is the material part that clothes the inner soul, which is the real essence of the person. The spirit is the force that animates the body, giving it life. When the spirit leaves the body, the body dies and ceases to exist. For those who belong only to this human realm, the soul then dies as well. As Jesus later says, "It is impossible to sow seed on [rock] and harvest its fruits.” In other words, without a spark of the divine within, there will be no ongoing life. But for those who belong to the realm above, the soul lives on after death and is taken up to its heavenly home.'

Kiss of Judas
The Kiss of Judas is a traditional depiction of
Judas by Giotto di Bondone, c. 1306. Fresco in
the Scrovegni Chapel, Padua
"The text is identified on the first page as "The secret account of the revelation that Jesus spoke in conversation with Judas Iscariot" shortly before the days leading up to Passover, when Judas collaborated with the Jewish authorities. The gospel begins by telling us:

When Jesus appeared upon the earth he performed signs and great wonders for the salvation of humanity, because some were walking in the path of righteousness and others in the path of their transgression. Now the Twelve were called as disciples, and he began to speak with them about the mysteries above the world and those things which will happen at the end.

The gospel is then divided into three scenes. In the first scene, Jesus comes upon the twelve disciples as they are sitting together, giving thanks over their bread, and he laughs. They ask why he is laughing at their thanksgiving, saying they have "done what is right," and he replies that he is not laughing at them, but that they are doing the will of their God. Confused, they reply that he is the son of their God; but he tells them, "Truly I say to you, no race of the people that are among you will know me.” When they heard this, "the disciples became angry and infuriated and began blaspheming against him in their hearts.”

What does Jesus mean by apparently dissociating himself from "their God"? As the editors of the Gospel of Judas point out, we can understand Jesus' remarks in the light of similar texts from Nag Hammadi. These attempt to explain the imperfect nature of our world by attributing its creation not to the true God but to a lower, malicious divinity, identified with the God of Israel. Later the Gospel of Judas gives us more detail about its cast of cosmic characters, but at this point, Jesus' comments make it clear that the disciples are mistakenly worshiping an inferior being rather than the highest god, an accusation that understandably upsets them. Recognizing their indignation, Jesus issues a challenge: "Let any one of you who is strong enough among human beings bring out the perfect human and stand before my face.” The text continues:

They all said, "We have the strength.”
But their spirits did not dare to stand before him, except for Judas Iscariot. He was able to stand before him, but he could not look him in the eyes, and he turned his face away.
Judas said to him, "I know who you are and where you have come from. You are from the immortal realm of Barbelo. And I am not worthy to utter the name of the one who has sent you.”


Barbelo, according to some Nag Hammadi texts, is the divine virgin mother and the partner of the true God. By identifying Jesus as from the "realm of Barbelo," Judas makes it clear that he alone understands who Jesus is and that he has been sent by the highest divinity. Jesus is impressed enough with Judas' spiritual perceptiveness to take him aside for special revelations: "Step away from the others and I shall tell you the mysteries of the kingdom. It is possible for you to reach it, but you will grieve a great deal.” Judas then asks when Jesus will tell him these things, but Jesus leaves, keeping Judas—and the reader—in suspense.

In the second scene, Jesus appears to the disciples again and when they ask where he went when he left them, he replies, "I went to another great and holy race.” His disciples are once again confused and ask, "Lord, what is the great and holy race, exalted above us, which is not in these realms?" Jesus laughs and replies, "Why are you thinking in your hearts about the strong and holy race? Truly I say to you, no one born of this realm will see that race.” The word for "race" here is translated by the editors of the gospel as "generation," but "race" is in fact a more natural translation and fits with both Jewish and early Christian descriptions of themselves as a race or a people.

The disciples are again understandably upset at Jesus' seemingly dismissive words—are they not to be a part of the holy people?—but worse criticism of them is still to come. They ask Jesus to interpret a vision they have had, in which they saw twelve wicked priests making sacrifices at an altar:

Some sacrifice their very own children, others their wives, all the while praising and behaving with humility toward one another; some sleep with men, some murder, some commit many sins and transgressions. The people who are standing over the altar are invoking your name.

Jesus' interpretation is less than flattering to the disciples:

It is you who were conducting the services at the altar that you saw. That god is the one you serve, and you are the twelve men whom you saw. The animals you saw being brought as sacrifices, this is the crowd whom you are leading astray upon that altar.

Here the critical portrayal of the twelve disciples draws on ambiguities that are already apparent in the canonical gospels, developing them in new directions. In the New Testament, after all, the disciples frequently come across as rather dim, petty, and fickle; they misunderstand parables, fall asleep in the garden of Gethsemane, and disown Jesus as he faces death. Even so, the resurrected Jesus ultimately bestows authority on them and in the end they become faithful missionaries of his message. By the second century, the apostolic succession—the doctrine that religious authority had been passed on from the apostles through an unbroken succession of bishops—was well established, and bishops claimed to have inherited their authority directly from the disciples, excluding Judas of course. The extremely negative depiction of the apostles in the Gospel of Judas (which only increases as the text continues) along with the elevation of Judas, the one disciple whom church authorities did not claim as their forebear, must therefore have been intended to criticize the bishops themselves. After all, if the bishops' authority was inherited from a group of people who had worshiped the wrong god and had never learned Jesus' secret teachings, it was surely illegitimate.”

“It's a very serious thing they have done against Christ. And still going on. Still this Catholic Church, though being exposed so much, is still going on - in India also, all over. It's stupid. This Protestant Church also is going on everywhere. What good name have they brought to Christ, one should see. The first and foremost thing He has said that you must enter into the Kingdom of God, that you must be born again.

So it's all mental: You are born again. You have a certificate. We are born again. Finished. So this mental attitude of the West is responsible for killing the great Incarnation of Christ, so I think it's another crucifixion. Mentally, you cannot understand spirituality.”

"You do not judge God from the people who talk about God. Anybody can talk about God because they think there is no law that can catch them. They can talk for Him, against Him, or they can do what they like. They can even make money by talking against God and against all the Prophets. So, first of all, we have to be a little independent to be free.”

"A personal experience of Self-Realisation I wish to share with my compatriots.

Thanks for creating a world forum to allow those of us who live so far away from home to express our deep concern for our country and perhaps make a useful contribution to the debate around our country's future.

I have to admit that not a single day goes by without feeling a sense of frustration at not being able to do something for my country which will improve its social, economic and political status. Moreover every Algerian that I meet abroad feels powerless to do anything which could bring happiness, well being and security to a country which has been torn by years of dictatorship, violence and economic hardship. Instead of brooding on my frustration, I thought I might share my personal experience with my compatriots.

Naturally I was born a Muslim but I was also a seeker of truth. I liked the idea of believing in God but I had to admit that it was just blind faith because no matter how much I prayed, fasted and gone through all sorts of penances I never managed to communicate with God let alone see Him. Everything I learned in Islam came from my family, my society and ancestors. I can't blame anyone for having forced me to accept a set of rituals and beliefs given that nobody knew any better and it was just everyone's desire to do their best to raise pious, obedient, religious children. This is the way my parents were brought up and so were their ancestors. In addition I was told that since I was born in Algeria, I was most likely to be Sunni which I later came to know as an orthodox form of Islam where communication with the divine or through a saint or some other religious institution was out of question. Gradually I discovered that Islam had split into several groups which had different ways of approaching the divine, the major ones being Sunni, Chia and sufism (as a mystical branch of Chia Islam).

In my quest for truth I began to sense that there must be a way as promised by the prophet (pbuh) of knowing oneself (the Rouh or inner being) and thereby knowing the divine with all its science, knowledge joy and self fulfilment. So one day, I was extremely fortunate to meet a very great lady, Her Holiness Shri Mataji Nirmala Devi, who was not just a saint but who had the unique power of giving en-masse self realisation. This experience consisted of having one's inner dormant power, called Kundalini which is located in the sacrum bone area, awakened and rising along the spine until it pierces the fontanel bone area. As a result the recipient feels cool vibrations on his hands and on top of the head. Shri Mataji spoke like a Mother and with compassion, taught me and thousands of people all over the world, that this connection is the actualisation of the Resurrection promised by Islam and by all the major religions. She added that when you get this enlightenment you become a much better Muslim because you don't need blind faith anymore, you can feel God and his divine powers on your fingertips and within yourself, something which has never happened en-masse in the times of previous Incarnations. Once you feel these vibrations you become Sahaj which means spontaneous (thus the name of the discipline: Sahaja Yoga).In my quest for truth I began to sense that there must be a way as promised by the prophet (pbuh) of knowing oneself (the Rouh or inner being) and thereby knowing the divine with all its science, knowledge joy and self fulfilment.

Your hand will 'speak' during Al-Qiyamah
That Day shall We set a seal on their
mouths, but their hands will speak to Us,
And their feet bear witness to all that

During the time of the Prophet (pbuh), self-realisation was only enjoyed by those closest to him while the great majority could never understand what he meant by self-knowledge. However in the Koran He promised that one day your hands will speak and your feet will testify against you. This is exactly what happened when I felt vibrations, as an enlightened Muslim I could feel which part of my inner being was alright and which was affected with a problem and then I could clear my energy centres (known in Koran as the seven skies or Sabaa Samawat), improve my connection with reality and feel the infinite compassion and joy of the Almighty flowing through me.

Prior to giving any more details about this extraordinary experience, I have to prove that this is not just a hypothesis but a genuine happening which can be enjoyed by every aspiring seeker. The easiest way of trying the experience of self-realization is to put your hands, with palms upwards, towards a photograph of Shri Mataji and observe what you feel on your fingers, hands and eventually on top of your head. To begin with, you may just feel tingling and heat but gradually, the heat will dissolve and you will feel a Cool Breeze flowing on your hands and on top of your head. Even if you don't have a photograph just putting your attention on H.H. Shri Mataji with the palms upwards is sufficient to start feeling cool vibrations on your hands.

If I had to describe all the blessings Sahaja yoga has bestowed on thousands of people, all over the world, I would need to write a pile of books. This is just a very humble introduction to the most powerful breakthrough in human evolution.

Finally I have to come back to talking about my country only to say that my dream is that someday many thousands of Algerians will get their self-realisation and will attract the blessings of the divine to establish peace, prosperity and complete satisfaction.”

"THAT DAY SHALL WE SET A SEAL ON THEIR MOUTHS BUT THEIR HANDS WILL SPEAK TO US, AND THEIR FEET BEAR WITNESS TO ALL THAT THEY DID.”

Al Quran. Sura Yasin-Chapter 36, Verse 65

Here again it is very clear, once the ascent or realization takes place, a person's hands and feet start to speak, bearing witness against him. Not only the hands and feet but the whole body starts to speak. All of the rights and the wrongs that have been done or are being done are known through the vibrations being emitted from the body. Thus, on the vibratory level, everything is known, not only about yourself but also about others.

After realization these vibrations are distinctly felt on the hands and feet as a Cool Breeze flowing from within. A person also gets to know when he is being lied to, or being manipulated. The mouth stops speaking for the realized person, as the mouth can lie but the hands start speaking and the feet bear witness, as everything is revealed through the vibrations and the vibrations never lie.

This is the time of Qiyamat without a doubt as all the prophecies in the Quran and the Hadith are coming true. The experience of Self-realization, ascent and meraj are not just happening to a few but thousands and thousands of people throughout the world are experiencing it en masse through Sahaja Yoga.

The Muslim community is generally highly programmed and conditioned. It therefore does not look beyond what has been taught to them by the Mullahs, who themselves, unfortunately, do not have much foresight and insight. The Sufis, however, discovered the true essence of Islam and sought their self-realization and God-realization. They saw the All Pervading and His love everywhere and in everything. The Sufis always kept seeking and searching for God. They knew that this was possible after they had attained their own Meraj... .

Now for the first time in human history, in the presence of H.H. Mataji Nirmala Devi, thousands of people are experiencing this great phenomenon en masse, through the simple process of Sahaja Yoga. Her authority and identity, along with the truth of all that is written above, can only be confirmed after one experiences the awakening of Kundalini (Buraq) and gets self-realization (Meraj). When the Kundalini passes through Chakras and when the seventh Chakra, the Sahasrara, is opened, a person achieves connection with the Divine.

This is the Qiyamat, the time of the Final Judgment. This is the time the Prophet told the world about. It is just the matter of recognizing it and ascending within oneself and through the seven heavens.”

It is illogical to think what will remain inside those graves after five hundred years. Nobody wants to think and understand that it is not the body but the soul that will come out of these bodies, be born again as human beings and be saved through Qiyamah and Resurrection.

Who will tell them? No one can talk to them. As soon as one wants to talk one can be killed. This is the only way they know - how to kill.”

"But these are special time, the Blossom Time. They call it the Last Judgment, you can call it the Resurrection Time, you can call it the Qiyamah, they call it in Koran. It is said that people will come out of their graves and will get their Resurrection. I mean what is left to the graves is nothing but a few stones and a few bones. No. All these souls which are dead will take their birth, take human body and take their Realization in these special times. This is a sensible thing to say and is also happening.”

THE MOTHER: Messiah-Paraclete-Ruh-Devi


"We are now in the Blossom Time, as I call it, because many flowers are born and they are to become the fruits. This is the Resurrection Time, which is described in all the scriptures. But it's not like this, the way they had described us. Something wrong with them that all the dead bodies who are in the graves will come out of the graves. I mean, how much is left out of them, God knows. Must be some bones or maybe some skulls there. So they'll come out of the graves and they will get their Resurrection!!!? This is a very wrong idea.

Once I happened to meet a fellow, a Muslim from Bosnia and he told Me, "I want to die for my religion, for God's sake.” I said, "But why? Who told you to die?" He said, "Now, if I die in the name of God, I'll be resurrected.” I said, "It's all wrong. That's not the way it is going to work out. Resurrection is going to work out this way that at this time, all these souls will take their birth. All these souls will take their birth and they will be resurrected. As human beings they'll have to come.”

That's why we find all kinds of funny people these days, all kinds of cruel, criminal, all kinds of idiotic, stupid, I mean very queer, weird, funny ideas which find such, such a variety of people and such a tremendous population that we should understand they have to have their chance of Resurrection. But how many will come? That's the point. How many are going to come?"

"There are lots of myths in the Bible and one of them is that at the Time of Resurrection your bodies will come out of the graves. This is not only for Christians, but also for the Muslims and Jews. Think of this - What remains in the grave after many years? Only a few bones. And if these bones came out how can you give them Realization? Think of it. It is a big myth. Not possible logically.”

Dear Mukesh,

Namaste!

i have come across two cases where vibrations were not felt for a considerable period of time - 2 years and the other nothing after 8 years. i do not know the reason why but one fact is common to both: they are surrounded by spouses, family members and friends who are against Shri Mataji because of one or more of the following:

1. they are conditioned and dependent on priests who teach them about god/religion. These preachers are in turn severely handicapped by their lack of knowledge of things that matters most - gnosis, second birth, kingdom of god, dsam duar (the tenth gate), self- realization etc. And none of them know anything about the Comforter or Aykaa Mayee (The One Mother). So they react strongly when their spouses tell them about Shri Mataji. These thoughts have a power of their own and linger in the air for a long time.

2. the harmful thoughts they project towards their spouses who meditate on Shri Mataji, and to Shri Mataji Herself creates a negative atmosphere. i remember a SY's home i stayed in 2001 and there were no vibrations in the whole bungalow except the room devoted to Shri Mataji. The only time i could feel vibrations outside Her room was when the SY or my wife meditated there.

Probably the better way would be for you to attend collective meetings because the vibrations of fellow SYs will help. (i always feel more vibrations when my family meditates together, a privilege some do not have.) You may ask them to work on you on a weekly basis and the more the better. There are also specific treatments that the collective might suggest.

At the last resort you may want to go to Varsi, India and get professional treatment. i had a friend who went there after having a very bad left Vishuddhi catch for years. When i say bad it means really, really bad - just hearing her voice or even thinking of her was enough to get the catch. Last year she came to see me and there was no catch. Her answer: Varsi.

Mukesh, if you do not feel vibrations it does not mean that your chakras are not working. Believe me they are working and one day you will feel them. Instead you should thrive to attain the thoughtless state because it is far more important than vibrations. Yes, vibrations are really very good and are like the 'breath of God' purifying and convincing you that it is the Last Judgment and the Resurrection. But If you attain the thoughtless state then vibrations will be a snowflake in winter. The thoughtless state is winter, something that will be beyond your wildest imagination. The intoxication of the Divine Nectar will leave you desiring nothing else for it is the most pleasurable and intense of spiritual experiences. Vibrations are nowhere compared to the Joy of Thoughtlessness.

But the thoughtless state is harder to achieve than getting vibrations.

1) The best would be for you to consciousness try to elongate the gap between one thought to another. You must consciously try to do so until it becomes second nature like breathing. i am making it sound simple but will take months of practice.

2) Try to stop reacting to situations or lessen the intensity. When we react it starts a chain reaction that takes a long time to settle, especially if it concerns or hurts us. It is just like throwing a big rock into a pristine and calm lake. Once it hits the bottom the mud will take a long time to settle. And this mud will rise in your mind also, sometimes for a long time and it will be difficult to attain the thoughtless gap for longer periods.

3) Don't listen to gossip because the mind thrives and flourishes on it. Gossip is food for the reacting mind. Try to starve it by listening to less, and thus also talking less. i have found that this mind pretends to sympathize with the unfortunate. For example, how 'sorry' we feel that our neighbor's daughter or so and so's wife has eloped. Still we cock our ears and wait for more, instead of telling, "Stop, we do not want to hear anymore.” The truth is our mind really want to know the juicy details. i don't think your mind will remain thoughtless if given the full 8-course meal of steamy, hot details that will leave you salivating for more .............. from another source.

> I get frustrated sometimes so much so that I had onces decided to
> quit sahaja yoga and indeed quitted it for a long time.
> Can you help me out!

Do not leave Sahaja Yoga just because you cannot feel vibrations or remain thoughtless. Don't leave Sahaja Yoga just because some stupid SY wants you to believe that Shri Mataji bought US$32,000 worth of diamonds to open the Agnya Chakra of America. Also don't leave SY because past leaders have made gross errors and got thrown out for embezzling funds or indulging in sexual perversion. Shri Mataji welcomes even the worst humans just to give them a chance to become better beings. She does not discriminate between a priest and a pedophile because both have equal right to salvation.

Leave Sahaja Yoga if you do not believe She is the Adi Shakti. Leave Sahaja Yoga if you believe She is a false guru. Leave Sahaja Yoga if you can find a better teacher or easier salvation. But you must remember at all times that you are subject to the Last Judgment because it has been announced to you. This is what you will have to consider if ever you want to leave.

So Mukesh just hang on and let the Great Adi Shakti work it out. Keep your faith in Her and She will reward you - SHE WILL! After all, She is your Mother and will act in your best interest.

Jai Shri Mataji,

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)

“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?”

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)

“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. 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)
