Dan Costian
Dear Brothers and Sisters,

Jai Shri Mataji!

Images have been used long before written signs were invented for communicating ideas. The visual impact always was stronger that the one produced when reading a text. Hence the decision to print the THIRD VOLUME on Religions and Yoga (meant to enlighten not only the Bible but other Scriptures as well) that includes illustrations to the previously published compilation.

Some of these pictures were projected in a Power Point presentation at the "Sheraton Hotel" in Los Angeles during the seminar preceding Navaratri Puja. Many Sahaja Yogis who have watched this presentation have expressed their desire to obtain the presentation. This book offers the possibility to acquire the pictures assembled in a book designed for an easy perusal. This THIRD VOLUME is organized according to the sequence of chapters, and the page numbers of the related text in the first and second volume are provided for every image. The illustrations are accompanied by explanatory captions. Notes and credits to all the pictures are given at the end of the book.

The illustrations within the THIRD VOLUME (and the text in the former two volumes as well) bring out evidence substantiating how Sahaja Yoga integrates the essential spiritual knowledge of all major religions. You can offer the volume(s) to yourself, to a friend (Sahaja Yogi or not, since "Bible Enlightened" is intended not only for Sahaja Yogis) or to a library. The THIRD VOLUME (ILLUSTRATIONS) of the BIBLE ENLIGHTENED costs 28 USD plus shipping and handling and can be ordered on line by using the PayPal button "Add to Cart" at http://home.comcast.net/~sydallas/bibleenlightened/

I hope you will all enjoy the THIRD VOLUME including beautiful and at the same time highly revealing images gathered in its pages.

Best wishes for Christmas and the New Year!

Your brother,

Dan Costian

What is new in the 2003 version compared to the original 1995 version:

- the text was completely revised and updated;

- the latest edition has 1041 pages as opposed to 431 pages in the first edition;

- some chapters were fully reworked;

- the book includes now the result of extensive researches performed during the last 8 years, mostly in American libraries.

Other noteworthy changes include:

- chapter XI, now entitled "Manifestation of the Spirit of God", was developed into the following subchapters: (a) The Prophecy; (b) The Secret Manifestation of the Kundalini; (c) The Cool Breeze; (d) The Water of Life; (e) The Fire and the Light;

- chapter XIX," Jesus — the Manifestation of the Universal Principle of Evolution", includes a subchapter called "The Prophecies Announce a New Avatar";

- section C2 of chapter XX, "Two Misogynists: Peter and Paul", includes a subsection about "The Church";

- a special subchapter (D)"The Divine Mother in Islam" was added to chapter XX;

- all the references (including those gathered from sources dating to 2003) were moved from the text body (in the first edition) to notes at the end of each chapter, thus making the text more readable.

The book is structured in two volumes, the first one dealing mostly with the Old Testament, while the second volume is devoted mainly to the Divine Son and the Divine Mother.

The work introduces the reader to a challenging new perspective, offering a fresh and far-reaching point of view on the mystical side of yoga as compared to world's religions that explores how Eastern and Western spiritualities support and complete each other. It is based on many years of vast research and travel around the world.

Besides thoroughly analyzing the Bible (Old and New Testaments) in connection to other Scriptures pertaining to Islam, Hinduism, Buddhism, Taoism and other religions, as well as esoteric doctrines such as Kabbalah, Sufism, Hesychasm aiming at discovering their deep, hidden essence, the author resorted to a wealth of documentary sources. However, beyond the inherent historical approaches, the work is focused on phenomenology with the aim of highlighting the common ground shared by the great religions and yoga spirituality.

As a scientist, the author expanded the breadth of the subjects covered in the book, bringing together knowledge not only from scriptures but also from science (mathematics, physics, astronomy, anatomy and physiology and other scientific resources), as well as historical facts, geographical surveys, results of archaeological findings, mythology, art history, analysis of folklore and ancient traditions, comparative linguistics especially of ancient languages.

In this day, Western seekers are interested in what the East has to offer in the realm of spirituality. This book can be a bridge between the East and the West, a signpost leading the seekers towards the essential synthesis they are looking for.

The intended audience includes readers in spirituality, world religions, yoga and meditation.

Synopsis of the BIBLE ENLIGHTENED: RELIGION AND YOGA

The opening idea is that the essence of the main spiritual traditions is common since inspired by a unique God.

The introduction aims at expounding the historical and geographical framework of ancient India, source of a millenary spiritual heritage.

Then, the reader is presented with the Hindu concept of cosmogenesis compared to other sacred writings. In this mythology, the primordial word plays a distinct role.

The relationship between God and his image reflected in man is explained through the system of subtle centers (chakras) and channels (metaphorically portrayed in the Bible, the Qur'an, the Kabbalistic and Gnostic texts) enlightened by the spiritual energy (Kundalini). Many scientists accept the holistic concept relating man and universe, and even try to prove scientifically the existence of God. The subtle system is usually depicted as tree, menorah, cross, ladder, staff, and multi-story edifices.

A hypothesis about the ancestors of the Hebrews coming from India is analyzed in chapters related to the Eden, Flood, vestiges of Moses and Solomon east of Palestine and their connection to the descendants of the "lost tribes of Israel" living in Kashmir.

A universal system of divine inspired rules (dharma) lies at the basis of any great religion, the Decalogue being just one example among others. Moses' miracles, the serpent-staff and brass-fiery serpent could be explained through the Kundalini manifestation depicted as a snake, a spiritual symbol of knowledge and wisdom widespread since Neolithic and Chalcolithic, worshipped in Old European, Egyptian, Hindu, Chinese, Minoan, Greek and pre-Colombian civilizations.

The universal principle of the spiritual master was manifest in great prophets and sages such as Abraham, Moses, Zoroaster, Lao-tse, Confucius, Socrates, Muhammad, Janaka, Nanak, and Sai Nath of Shirdi.

The Spirit of God explains the ability to prophesize of all genuine Realized souls. In order to keep it secret, various scriptures described the manifestations of the Kundalini as Cool Breeze, water of life, light or cold fire, the latter represented by enlightened artists in their masterpieces.

The worship of God concludes the first volume. The place, time, preparations, invocations, sacrifices and offerings as well as other rituals are thoroughly discussed.

The second volume is focused on the following major themes:

The Divine Son: Jesus, an example of avatar (like in other traditions), was announced by prophecies, and recorded in the Scripture (giving a poverty of details, often contradictory) even by (more or less) contemporary authors. Such avatars manifest the principle of spiritual evolution revealing their attributes specific to the attained stage of spiritual development within cosmic cycles (Hindu yugas as well as eras of astronomical precession of equinoxes). The avatars have their correspondence in the universal and human chakras endowed with specific qualities. Prophecies about the present transition to a new era proclaim the advent of a new great incarnation.

The Divine Mother: All the non-Hebrew ancient people worshiped the Goddess. However, a careful analysis reveals her concealed presence all along the Old Testament. In the Bible Enlightened, The Divine Mother in the New Testament has granted a large space dealing with Virgin Mary's modest place in the Scripture due to Peter and Paul's misogyny inspiring the Church, and the contrasting position of widespread popular piety devoted to her. The Gnostics revered God The Mother, too. A special section discloses the high respect paid to the Divine Mother in Islam. Last but not least, the Holy Spirit points to the Divine Mother (Goddess) as well.

The grace bestowed on Jesus by the non-created energy of the Holy Spirit explains his powers first manifested at the baptism (the second birth) enabling him to perform healings and exorcism.

The reader is faced with an exciting question (Did Jesus Live in India?) and confronted with many writings. Holger Kersten (followed by Elizabeth Clare Prophet and others) broadly publicized their investigations on the matter. However, such works might appear amateurish if compared to the erudite works of Khwaja Nazir Ahmad (preceding the former two) or Fida Hassnain and Dahan Levi (posterior to Kersten's book).

A thorny matter concerns reincarnation. Its traces left in the Bible are reviewed in comparison with other sacred texts and the favorable opinions of several writers and public figures.

Union with God, a primordial human aspiration, and its manifestations within the esoteric trends of Christianity, Islam and Judaism are investigated in the last chapter.

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)

“Because of the presence of the Paraclete in the life of the believer, the blessings of the end-times—the eschaton—are already present.”
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.”

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 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)

“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)
