Chidagni: The Goddess as the Fire of Consciousness


Yogic Secrets of the Dark Goddess
"The flow of the life force through Kali's grace awakens the Shakti, her electrical power, providing us a relentless spiritual energy for our sadhana. Ma Kali's Kriya Shakti, her power of yogic transformation, guides us through all the impediments of illusion, karma and our limited mindset. Her vibrant energies release a lightning force like a sword, cutting through all negativity, clearing the path for the ascension of the Kundalini fire.”

CHIDAGNI: THE GODDESS AS THE FIRE OF CONSCIOUSNESS
By Shambhavi Chopra

Ma Kali gently tended the coals of my inner fires, stirring the flames of Agni to manifest every magical colour, permeating the very spanda or creative pulsation resonating throughout my being. At an innermost level, Agni is the fire of consciousness, Chidagni, the awareness of the supreme Brahman, the ultimate Existence in itself. Chidjyoti, the 'light of consciousness', is the power behind the mind that illumines both sensory objects and our thought patterns, bathing them in the beauty of its eternal radiance.

The universe weaves a divine tapestry of light and energy, which has been tapped by our ancient Rishis and by Native Guides all over the world resonating with nature's beatitude. The Seers perceived the subtle vibrations, the 'aliveness' of light, pervading the Tanmatras or root essences of sight, sound, taste, touch or smell, as well as the inner intuitive perception of one's sixth sense of Being. Our mergence into the all pervasive light allows us to experience a pure state of illumination inside and outside, ushering us through the gateway of higher consciousness.

Shakti prevails on all levels, from supreme Brahman to the minutest living organism. Every light form has its own shakti, from the rays of the Sun to the luminescence of Moonlight. Brahma Shakti is chit shakti, the power of consciousness existing as one with the Shiva principle. Ishvara as the cosmic world is the power or will of God to transform and nourish every living being. All the forces of nature represent Shakti, unfolding the goddesses lila or play. Durga's light protects and encircles us with her divine power. Kali is the pulsating, stimulating relentless energy.

As the spirit of fire, Agni personifies Jyoti or light as perception. The gift of sight is the power of fire, as seeing is our way of cognizing light. The clarity of seeing discloses the essence of everything that we observe. Kali is Charunetra, the 'Devi with beautiful eyes', viewing the entire cosmic play through her fire of consciousness. She destroys all illusion in her role as Bhrama- nasini, 'the one who destroys all confusion', embodying the three states of Creation- Preservation -Destruction as Brahma, Vishnu and Shiva.

At the altar of sacrifice Kali is Agni, echoing its brilliance, hissing its fiery magic yet tending the warmth of its dying embers. Fire is a sacrifice unto itself, a sense of mysticism shrouding its powers. At the fire altar is placed our own sacrifice of both inner and outer natures, holding a deep reverence in its sacrificial act.

Cultivating the fire of awareness on every level enables one to experience sheer Ananda or bliss. In the inner Yoga, Agni reflects the fiery Kundalini force dwelling in the Muladhara holding all deeper earth-like qualities. This 'root fire' expresses the power of our aspirations, rising from below and ascending heavenwards.

Our inner fires must be tended to with great care and a gentle fanning, to keep their forces moving throughout our being. One must prepare the ground for the fire's magnificent ascent through the body, mind and soul. There are no shortcuts to higher revelations. The search for the illumining light must begin within oneself. These inner stirrings manifest when we quieten all exterior noise, silencing all worldly distraction.

When guidance flows from the heart, its purity vanquishes the perturbed questionings of a doubting mind. The loving flow of trust in the heart's capacity to manifest higher thoughts will create the space for sattvic or pure aspiration. The gentle calming of the soul will awaken an inner intelligence, guiding the mind to read the subtle nuances of the soul.

Kali opens the doors to the spiritual heart with her blessings. She represents the highest flame of the fire which takes us from the depths of our being to the most secret chambers of the heart. Hers is the kindling power which ignites the fire to traverse its fiery path, seeking out the blue flame within the spiritual heart.

Hridaya, the spiritual heart, is the creative, unique home of the all- consuming Agni in its purest nature. The tiny flame of the supreme Agni rests in the womb of the heart. The heart carries the strains of the entire universe as the ultimate abode of both the Devatas and the soul. Goddess Kali resides in our hridaya, manifesting all time, space, aspirations and experiences.

This tiny etheric space perceived within the heart through sadhana is called Hridayaksha, the 'heart space' or 'dahara akasha', 'the small space'. Ma Kali sits enthroned in this diminutive space within the heart in the inextinguishable flame of Agni. The vision of the universe within it is the eternal Soma offering of endless joy! Kali's grace unfolds as Siddhida, 'the giver of siddhis', higher powers and mystic renderings.

Agni is represented by an upward facing triangle, indicating the striving of the soul's aspirations to higher truths. Familiarising myself with life's journey, yoked by my sadhana I learned to nurture the fierceness of Agni, sustaining its fiery flame of concentration, awareness, perception, and insight.

Kali's triangular form of Agni was realised through meditation, its varying hues and tempestuous heat purifying my lower energies through burning their samskaras, the 'subtle impressions of my past actions'. As an upward pointing triangle one seeks her power of speech, the very tongue of the Goddess, the tongue of fire! As a downward pointing triangle, one experiences her flow of grace, through the womb of immortality!

The ageless silence of the ancient Himalayas oriented my mind to a gentle flow of Self-inquiry, bringing in its wake a deeper current of inner grace. Waves of Bhakti Yoga or sheer devotion filled my being with a sweet Soma, the divine nectar. Surrender to the Divine consecrated my life with a surge of blessings, guiding me to experience the ecstasy of their spiritual delight.

As Rakta Kali, her currents of blood (rakta) flow through everything. Seeking the flow of blood comprises her deeper nature. There is nothing through which her powerful currents do not course; yet her aim is not to consume our blood but to direct its course back to our soul, of which she is The Mother. It is the very blood of life that she brings to us, the prana or cosmic life force supporting the most primal will of all life — to live forever.

The flow of the life force through Kali's grace awakens the Shakti, her electrical power, providing us a relentless spiritual energy for our sadhana. Ma Kali's Kriya Shakti, her power of yogic transformation, guides us through all the impediments of illusion, karma and our limited mindset. Her vibrant energies release a lightning force like a sword, cutting through all negativity, clearing the path for the ascension of the Kundalini fire.

The fine edge of Kali's sword energizes the celestial weapons of the Devatas, the sadhana of the Yogin and the Prana of all life. Her sword is not one of negation; it allows us to envision a reversal, revealing the beauty of eternity cutting through each transient moment. It strikes at the inertia of ignorance and death in order to release the light within us. Kali's dynamism fans the flame of Chidagni within the precincts of the spiritual heart, allowing its fire to raise our vibrational levels, creating a sacred space for the blossoming of all our sacred lotuses.

The Dark Goddess graced me with an innate proficiency in using the fiery inner flame, raising my energy to higher planes, charring the debilitating vulnerability of body and mind, dissolving the shadows of darkness into the luminescence of Her spiritual love and Light.

Jai Ma Kali! Jagatadhatri!

Victory to The Mother as the Support of All the Worlds!


Many scholars see The Motherhood of Kali as an irresolvable paradox.

Seeking Mahadevi: Constructing the Identities of the Hindu Great Goddess

"When Oriya Hindus address MahaDevi in worship or when they talk of her, the term they use most frequently is Ma, or 'Mother.' There is little indigenous debate regarding the appropriateness of this usage. After all, Oriya Hindus recognize her as present in every aspect of creation. Whatever her particular manifestation, whatever her particular actions, she generates and regenerates all life. Consequently, she is Mother.

Even when a particular manifestation of MahaDevi—for instance, Gurga or Kali—is not explicitly associated with any male god nor any progeny, she is still thought of and addressed as Mother. Oriya Hindus see nothing incongruous in this usage, although many scholars are uneasy with it, tending to see in The Motherhood of Kali, for example, an irresolvable paradox. Some even go so far as to say that the labeling of Kali as Mother is an inadvertent 'mistake' made by Kali's devotees, a mistake that should be discounted by those who seek consistency in their interpretations (see Allen 1976, 315; Gross 1983, 224—225; Kinsley 1986, 126—128). In fact, Hindus tend to perceive the defining feature of all females as the embodied potential for reproduction. Hence, an infant or a prepubescent girl, a married mother, and an old widow are all 'mother' and are all addressed as 'Ma.' The use of this term points to their reproductive potential rather than any actual experience of motherhood.

There is also another, perhaps more instrumental, reason for the use of the term 'Ma' for goddesses who are explicitly violent and do not appear to be maternal. This has to do with Oriya Hindu perceptions regarding Ma's power to destroy. Indigenous discourse clearly distinguishes the Goddess's ability to apply her destructive capacity in ways that are deliberate from those that are indiscriminate. Thus, as Gurga, for example, Ma is never indiscriminate in her destruction. Oriya Hindus tend to portray Gurga as a mighty warrior who is invincible and invulnerable. Whenever the gods are unable to destroy their enemies, she enters the fray, and she is always successful in securing victory for the gods. She never targets the innocent, for her victims are invariably arrogant demons intoxicated by their own ability to destroy. Furthermore, she is rarely wrathful but carries out her destructive duties with measured control.

Kali, however, is a different goddess altogether. The defining characteristic of her nature is wrath (krodha, raga), and in her anger she destroys indiscriminately, giving no thought to her victims, be they demons or men, deserving of death or not. To a large extent, David R. Kinsley is quite accurate when he says that Kali is 'antisocial,' threatening 'stability and order' (1982, 148). In his fascinating essay on her and the meanings she holds for her devotees, Kinsley describes her as becoming 'frenzied on the battlefield, usually becoming drunk on the blood of her victims, [so] that she herself begins to destroy the world that she is supposed to protect' (148). He recognizes that despite her tendency to spin out of control, her devotees regard her as the highest manifestation of the divine. In Bhubaneshwar, too, articulate residents describe her in very similar ways, as dark-skinned, wild-eyed, dishevelled, panting for blood. They say she can never be worshiped within the household, for symbolizing as she does blood, death, and indiscriminate destruction, she is highly inauspicious. She could never insure the material prosperity of the household nor the maintenance of the lineage. The appropriate place to worship her is the cremation ground, with jackals howling and funeral fires burning; and the appropriate time to worship her is on the night of the new moon.”

Notes
1. Oriya Hindus routinely interchange the names Ma, Devi, Sakti, MahaDevi, often in the same sentence.
2. According to Oriya Hindus, only when she is in her form as Kali, her most destructive aspect, do bloodthirsty demonesses like Candi and Camundi tumble out of her body, devouring all life forms that come in their path.

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)

“The gift of peace, therefore, is intimately associated with the gift of the Spirit-Paraclete.”

“This utopian hope, even when modestly expressed, links Jesus and the prophets to a much wider history of human longing.”

Robert Kysar, John

“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

“The Kingdom of God stands as a comprehensive term for all that the messianic salvation included... is something to be sought here and now (Mt. 6:33) and to be received as children receive a gift (Mk. 10:15 = Lk. 18:16-17).”
G. Ladd, A Theology of the New Testament


“But today is the day I declare that I am the one who has to save the humanity. I declare I am the one who is Adishakti, who is the Mother of all the Mothers, who is the Primordial Mother, the Shakti, the desire of God, who has incarnated on this Earth to give its meaning to itself; to this creation, to human beings and I am sure through My Love and patience and My powers I am going to achieve it.

I was the one who was born again and again. But now in my complete form and complete powers I have come on this Earth not only for salvation of human beings, not only for their emancipation, but for granting them the Kingdom of Heaven, the joy, the bliss that your Father wants to bestow upon you.”

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)

“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)
