"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
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.�

The Betrayer's Gospel
By Eduard Iricinschi, Lance Jenott, Philippa Townsend
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."

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."

"Pope is another horrible fake guru sitting here. Then we have another one which is of Canterbury sitting there. All of them are false gurus - know nothing about Kundalini, don't know anything of Brahma,...
So they want to propound that they are the solution, achieving nothing, spoiling the name of Christ, and doing all kinds of things against Him stupidly, without knowing the Divine."
The Paclete Shri Mataji
Gmunden, Austria - July 6, 1986
"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.

mouths, but their hands will speak to Us,
And their feet bear witness to all that
they did. Surah 36:65 (Ya Sin)
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."
jammy akhbar, 21:14:44 on 09/04/01
"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."
Javed Khan, Islam Enlightened
New Delhi, India, 1988, p. 32-3
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."
"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?"
Philadelphia, USA — October 15, 1993
"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."
India - December 25, 1993
"But you must remember at all times that you are subject to the Last Judgment because it has been announced to you."

> Dear sahaja yogis!
> Jai shri mataji!
> I have been in sahaja yoga for approximately 3 years and still I
do not feel vibrations. I do not become thoughtless either. What may
be the reason and how should I grow in sahaja yoga?
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

> 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.
