The Case Of The Double Witnesses

"A great awakening is taking place. Individuals all across the world are tapping into their internal power to understand who they are and using that knowledge to elevate their lives and their circumstances to a higher octave of happiness and productivity. Sharing the search, and the techniques of searching, is only a part of the help we can give one another."- Shirley Maclaine

Swami Venkatesananda, The Concise Yoga Vasistha

"Lila began to meditate. Immediately she entered the highest state of consciousness free from all distractions (nirvikalpa). She was in the infinite space of consciousness. There she saw the king once again, on a throne, surrounded by many kings who adored him— but they did not see her. She wondered: are they all dead, too!

Again, by the grace of goddess Sarasvati, she came back to her palace, and saw her attendants asleep. She woke them and asked them to request the members of the royal court to assemble at once.

Seeing all the members of the royal court, Lila was puzzled: she thought, 'This is strange, for these people seem to exist in two places at the same time—in that region which I saw in my meditation and here in front of me. Just as a mountain is seen both inside the mirror and outside it, this creation is seen both within consciousness and outside it. But, which of these is real and which the reflection? I must find out from Sarasvati'. She adored Sarasvati and saw her seated in front of her.

LILA:
Be gracious, O Goddess, and tell me this. That on which this world is reflected is extremely pure and undivided, and it is not the object of knowledge. This world exists both within it as its reflection, and outside as solid matter: which is real and which the reflection?."..

VASISTHA:
"O Rama, Sarasvati and queen Lila immediately sat in deep meditation, or nirvakalpa samadhi. They has risen above body-consciousness. Because they had given up all notions of the world, it had completely vanished in their consciousness. They roamed freely in their wisdom-bodies. Though it seemed that they had travelled millions of miles in space, they were still in the same 'room', but on another plane of consciousness. They saw all that was already in the mind of Sarasvati, and which Sarasvati wanted to show to queen Lila."

The Case Of The Double Witnesses

Since Self-Realization Kash attended most pujas with his parents but, unlike others, he always attended two simultaneously — the physical puja on Earth and the spiritual one in the Kingdom of Sadashiva. Normally, before these spiritual ceremonies commenced, he would meditate and reach the Sahasrara. There the Great Adi Shakti and the Divine Unity were always ready and waiting for him. After exchanging greetings with the Messengers of the Creator, the spiritual ceremonies performed on Earth in Her honor were witnessed.

In the Sahasrara the exact manifestation of the material world takes place, down to the last grain of rice offering. Every single gesture or movement during puja is witnessed as it takes place on Earth. This is the incomprehensible state of the microcosm in the macrocosm. However, those Sahaja Yogis performing Shri Mataji's pujas are completely unaware that they are being observed within their own Sahasraras. All havans, pujas and other spiritual ceremonies performed by Sahaja Yogis are always witnessed by Shri Mataji and the Spirit Beings of the Holy One — This Revealed Truth is Absolute.

For Kash these ceremonies are special. Not only he sits beside the Great Universal Mother and Her Divine Spirits in the Thousand-Petal Lotus, but he is also able to witness the whole ceremony in physical world simultaneously — and keep switching back and forth. He actually witnesses himself witnessing the ceremonies. He can see himself on Earth saying mantras, bowing, meditating, throwing the havan samaghri into the sacred fire, eating prasad, and so on. However his ethereal in the Sahasrara does not do what his corporeal self is doing in the physical world. In the Sahasrara he just witnesses Her devotees on Earth performing their duties. He actually does two separate actions simultaneously, one with his physical body in the macrocosm and the other with his spirit Self in the microcosm. He does what he is not doing. He does not do what he is doing. He witnesses what he is not witnessing. He does not witness what he is witnessing. Which is the Reality and which is the Illusion?

On January 26, 1997, at 11:15 a.m. Kash was asked what he imagined or thought about inside the Thousand-Petal Lotus. Did he think what subject to talk about, maybe wonder how blissful it was, or any other thought whatsoever. He replied that the human spirit neither thinks nor rationalize. In that Realm of Reality everything is done in the pure state of thoughtless awareness:

"At this state of thoughtless awareness you encompass the whole Universe and at that state this Power works wherever the problem may be. So we have to understand our value, that we have this Power within ourselves and this is to be respected and to give credit to the Goddess because She's done so much work for us that She should not feel that it's now they got realization just for a song and they are not bothered, they don't know how to develop it. She will not be in any way hurt but Her Work, what She has done, we have to see, we have to understand, we have to have a feeling that somehow as we have now got enlightenment we should try to be people as complete instruments of that Power. That's only possible when you don't have your own ideas, your own interference. Complete instrument, just like I have said, this instrument has to be perfectly all right otherwise it cannot work."

The mundane mind must become non-functional and the state of thoughtless awareness — where all work is done in a Spiritual Dimension that is in harmony with The DIVINE — harnessed for each and every human task. This state, where all desires and problems become the responsibility of this Paramchaitanya or Spiritual Energy, has to be experienced in order to be understood. This is how the new race of superconscious beings in the New Millennium will bring about the healing of this Earth. When there are no thoughts or ego, what differences and delusion can divide and fragment His Human Family?

Shri Adi Shakti: The Kingdom Of God, 1999, p. 555


The Chandogya Upanishad speaks not only of the akasha outside man, but also of the inner akasha (antah-akasha)

"They [sages] believed that man is an epitome of all reality, that he is the whole world and all times in miniature, a veritable microcosm (pinda). To study him is to study the whole macrocosm (brahmanda). The approach makes a deep philosophic sense. As the sages looked within, they saw that the truths of the spirit are also the basis of man's more physical and social welfare, yoga-kshema; that when men follow spiritual and moral excellence, they are also rich in things of life and nature's gifts. Their basket is full, and the earth yields more abundantly and freely, their herbs are more nourishing... . The Chandogya Upanishad speaks not only of the akasha outside man, but also of the inner akasha (antah-akasha), and even of akasha within the heart."

"Symbolism of divine messengers

Experiences relating to these realities could not at any time have been common or widespread and must have come mainly through consecrated channels: yogis (Hindu meditation practitioners), gurus (Hindu teachers), prophets, mystics, saints, and spiritual masters of the inner life. This channelling through human agents has given rise to a host of divine messengers: a hierarchy of angels, intermediaries, and incarnations, singly or in succession. This manner of approaching or receiving the divine or holy is the justification of avatars (incarnations of God) and the man-God in various religions."God was made man in order that man might be made God."

The mystical experience is a renovation of life at its root; that is, of the forgotten language of symbols and symbolism. The mystic participates in two worlds at once, the profane and the sacred. Rituals and ceremonies become the means of integration with a higher reality and consciousness. But symbols cannot be deliberately manufactured, nor do they make an arbitrary system."Being for ever communicating its essence"Is the source of their abundance, potency, and unity. Even a nontheistic mysticism, such as Buddhism, has deployed symbols freely, of which perhaps the most well-known is the formula om mani padme hum ("The jewel in the lotus").

Symbols point beyond themselves, participate in that to which they point, open up levels of reality that are otherwise closed to man, unlock dimensions and elements of the soul that correspond to reality and cannot be produced intentionally or invented. Symbols may be inner or outer. To some, nature symbolism comes easily."

Britannica Online (1994-1998 Encyclopaedia Britannica, Inc.)


"We find ourselves, I believe, in the midst of the most massive shift of perspective that humankind has ever known. We are living in a time — and I see this all over the world — in which our very nature is in transition. The scope of change is calling for patterns and potentials in the human brain that, as far as I know, were never needed before. Knowings that were relegated to the unconscious are becoming conscius, and experiences that belonged to extraordinary reality are becoming ordinary.

Our potentials are no longer limited by place and culture. In this developing hybrid world, capacities and perspectives that were once nurtured in separate socieites are now available to the entire human family. To me this is a stupendous happening as important as the discovery of new continents during the time of the great sea journeys. For the first time in human history, because of communication, the genius of the human race is available for everyone to harvest.

I think the holistic movement has become more global in its concerns. And I think the threshold of the millennium has, if anything, accelerated and intensified the need to recognize that we are stewards in this biological and evolutionary process and, by God, we'd better be up to the task."

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)

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

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.”

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)
