The Doctrine Of Incarnation

"All the avatars are here, and when your heart is attuned to them you know them. They are here today. It is a fact, my friends, that many people do see Jesus today, as they do see Krishna and Rama: there is no room for agnosticism or scepticism here. This point can be argued on the highest basis of philosophy, but when you have seen an avatar, you know that your heart is highly purified. Surrender your soul to be tuned and played upon by the avatar, like a flute, and then you will hear the music, 'Tat Twam Asi' (That thou art) issuing from it.”

THE DOCTRINE OF INCARNATION
(From Self-Knowledge SUMMER 2002)
by Hari Prasad Shastri

"To understand the doctrine of the Bhagavad Gita, it is necessary to understand the doctrine of incarnation. Not re-incarnation, but incarnation, and when we have understood the doctrine of incarnation we shall also understand the true meaning of Christianity, Judaism and other great religions. On several occasions Shri Krishna mentions his incarnation. At one place He says, 'When virtue begins to decline and righteousness predominates, then, O Arjuna, I am born to protect the righteous and punish the wicked'. Now it is on this theme that I venture to address you in some detail.

At the back of all phenomena there is one existence which is eternal, immortal and without a second. This is the truth which we can never afford to forget. We have to remember it all the time, and if there is any doctrine which conflicts with this truth, it is to be taken as a preliminary doctrine and not as truth of the highest type. The highest truth is that there is nothing but God, who is consciousness absolute, without any attributes, above all subject-object relationship, the one existence, consciousness and truth, or bliss; He alone exists and nothing else. There are not two existences, not two ultimate principles, but only one ultimate principle. This is the highest truth and there is no truth beyond this truth. When the mind realizes this truth then it becomes no-mind, that is, it becomes God. When the mind has become God, then the final problem of life has been solved, then all the knots of the heart have been pierced, all doubts have been dissolved and one great inundation of light floods the soul. This is the background to the philosophy of religions and of the Gita in particular.

When we postulate a philosophical doctrine, it should provide an answer to the questions: What is truth? What is the world? The duty of philosophy is to understand the world, and if a philosophy is not able to afford a complete and satisfactory explanation of it, then there is something wanting in it. Even the crudest of religions gives some explanation as to the origin of the world, as to its purpose, its maintenance and its final destiny. Man is included in the world. When people have understood what man is, they will have understood what the world really is, and when they have understood what the world is they will also understand what man is.

Apart from man, the world consists of time, space and the law of cause and effect. All the categories of Aristotle are included in these three. God, or Truth, is not to be sought in this world, but He is to be sought in the element which is more than the world, which existed before the creation of the world and which will continue to prevail when the solar systems have collapsed and have become dirt and dust, when the earth and all the satellites of the solar luminary have been reduced to nothingness; even then the Father in Heaven will continue to rule as He rules today.

This is the basis of philosophy, a belief in the non-dual principle. It is not only a matter of faith, but by cogent logical and discursive reasoning this doctrine can be established. It does not fight shy of scepticism, materialism and other systems of pseudo- philosophy. Therefore, my friends, this is the rock- bottom truth on which we have to stand. If there are any who can understand this truth, the fundamental, basic and rock-bottom truth, that is, the identity of the localized spirit in man with the supreme and absolute spirit, he needs no prayers and no rituals, nothing except a Guru.

When we find this hard to understand, to realize, then we need the subsidiary doctrine, and not otherwise. You will say why? Because when our mind is tranquillized and purified of all desires, good and evil, both, and is completely detached from anything in the world, be it a husband, a kingdom or a country, it is then and only then that the infinite spirit reflects itself in the intelligence and the intelligence is borne up and the finite is absorbed in the infinite. This is the holy doctrine, the basis of the yogic teachings and the basis of each and every great religion.

Man consists of the body, the mind and the divine ray which is called the monad. St Paul has said that man is a triple alliance of body, mind and spirit, and this is the same doctrine which is explained in the Gita.

Take the case of Christ, or of Rama and Krishna. They did not evolve, they were never ignorant but came independent of any reason: the divine ray descended, created that particular body, created that particular mind and dwelt in it, all-perfect in knowledge, in morality and in power, and this is what we call a permanent Incarnation of God.

It is believed that the body of Christ was not like our body; it was the divine body, it was the divine mind, and the spirit in Him was ever enlightened. We hope to be enlightened one day by His grace, but He was ever enlightened and He descended directly from the primordial source of consciousness. A man today is bound but he will one day be freed by his own exertion. An Incarnation is never bound and He is not freed by his own exertion. He is perfect in every possible way and there is no sin in Him, and He is not influenced by any of His actions. This is called Incarnation.

Krishna says in the Gita: 'O Arjuna, I am born in this world again and again'. And Arjuna asks: 'How am I to know this?' Krishna replies: 'O Arjuna, I know all the lives, thou knowest them not, I know them all and I will continue to come. Whenever virtue is on the decline and evil in the ascendant, in order to restore the balance of virtue I take birth again and again'.

Who is this 'I' who takes birth? It is the Lord omniscient and omnipresent, called Ishwara, God the Father. It is He who is saying so. Brahman, the infinite, immortal, absolute, has no death and no birth, but He has a second phase by means of which we explain the world — Ishwara, the personal God, and it is He who says 'I am born again and again'.

This is an explanation of the verse: 'He who knows my body and my actions to be divine, he goes beyond this world into the realm of light'. It is an act of supreme sacrifice on the part of the divine to appear as man. People remember only one sacrifice, the sacrifice which Christ made on the Cross, but that was the last sacrifice. There was a sacrifice greater than that: it was the eternal, immutable, infinite, incarnating in the body.

A yogi serves God. What is the meaning of service of God? First, doing good deeds without any selfishness and offering their results to God. Man has not accomplished the purpose of life unless he has done good to other creatures unselfishly and offered that good to God to be utilized as He likes. Secondly, control of the mind. Thirdly, tranquillization and enrichment of the mind by means of knowledge of the holy truth, by prayers and devotion, by higher contemplation and by acquiring that state of indisturbability of the mind that, whatever may happen, it is never puzzled, never in doubt.

The first essential of life is service of God. Service of God does not consist in going to Church once a week with polished shoes and a Spring hat, but it is the mind which has to be dyed in the colour of divinity, to imitate the attributes of the avatar, to imitate his fortitude, his forgiveness, his refusal to censure anybody. If I were to describe Christ in one sentence I would say, 'He is a praying being'. Therefore it is essential that every man should be a praying man, in order to go beyond this life of darkness and death.

Then, worship of God and Guru. There is no salvation without the worship and loving associationship of the Guru. The Guru is one who has received the mandate to teach from a direct line of teachers; who has verified through his own experience the truth which he is giving, who has boundless patience, forgiveness and compassion for all beings of the world. He is the door through which the soul enters into God, and those who do not enter through this gate will find it most difficult to receive the grace of God. It is not that by worshipping Guru you worship God, but that God will speak to you first through the scriptures, then through the teacher, then through your own heart directly. This is the mystical process.

Just as a piece of iron when brought into the proximity of fire receives the fire and grows hot, so when man through rigid self- control, meditation, abstraction and withdrawal, brings his mind closer and closer to God within, it begins to get the warmth of God, and that warmth is called other-worldliness. St John of the Cross mentions it. It comes and goes. Why? Because it depends upon us. If we withdraw a ball of iron from the fire for a little while, it will begin to cool off. If we forget God and our main duty in the world we will suffer relapses in spirituality.

Whatever we do we have to do every day and solemnly. I am a scholar, but if I do not study for a month I find that that element in me which I call scholarly will diminish. Unless a musician practises every day, he will lose his art. How do we expect that by thinking of God for ten or fifteen minutes a day we will acquire any great proficiency? Those who are devoted to God and Guru, who devote every minute of their life to the remembrance of the Lord, to the practice of virtue, to the study of the holy truth and who are devoted compassionately to others, they are the people who will see God face to face in this very life. If you know how to focus the mind unselfishly, some aspects of God will be revealed to you through it. Therefore it is our duty to imitate the Incarnation and live as Christ lived. If any of you have not got The Imitation of Christ, I ask you to get that book and read it with fervour. There is some magic in it, and when you read it you feel, at least for the time being, 'This is reality, this is peace, this is truth. Let me live according to it'.

Let us every day try to imitate Christ in his fervent love for his Father in Heaven and in his indifference to temporal objects. To serve Him means to carry on his mission. Christ lived only for one thing and that was to relieve the ills of humanity. How do people live now? They become healers, they become augmenters of their own illnesses. It is by acquiring his knowledge and distributing it to others, by inviting the attention of the people towards the Lord and his avatars that we serve Him. Finally, we meditate on Him.

The universal life — your life, my life, Napoleon's life, the life of St Francis, the life of Christ — are all one. All life is one, and therefore if you harm anybody you are harming yourself, whether you know it or not. The most important doctrine is the doctrine of universal life. All life is divine and it all belongs to God. He has given life to us on trust so that we may purify it and finally offer it as a sacrifice to Him — that is the purpose of life.

What is the meaning of purity of life? Life should be kept on a sattvic (righteous and harmonious) plane. If you keep it on a sattvic plane you will receive inspiration. If you do not keep your life pure, inspiration will be short-lived. The inspiration of Aristotle still lives because there is not a better man than Aristotle in Greek history. Such also was Goethe in modern times. He has put the world under an obligation for thousands of years; people have not yet realized the greatness in this man, but one day they will realize it.

Perpetual loving meditation on an avatar is the highest aspect of life. Progress in life means progress in virtue, in tranquillizing the mind, in devotion to God, in meditation and so forth. The great mistake which the Christians have made is that they think Christ is the only avatar of God. Do they really believe that in the eighteen million years of the life of man he has been left by God without a guide. In what respect was Moses not an avatar of God?

When one has meditated on an avatar, then one will be able to meditate on the attributeless, on the abstract, on the absolute; but for the highest good of man, meditation on an avatar is essential and it also shows results very soon. Therefore it is necessary that we should worship an avatar. 'O Arjuna, he who knows my birth and actions as divine, he goes beyond this life'. 'What sayest thou that I am?' 'Thou art Christ, the Saviour'. 'Thou knowest'.

It is in order to concentrate his mind that a Buddhist contemplates an image of Buddha. It is only a matter of concentration. Now the question comes: Christ left the world, Krishna left the world, Rama left the world. What is the use of worshipping them now and thinking of them? There is a sect which says: 'I will not worship anything which dies'. What dies? Nothing dies in the world. Christ and Buddha are here today. They may not be within sight, but their rays are here now, and if you piously attune yourselves to those rays you will get the same benefit as those who lived in their time and who talked with them. Electricity was present in nature in ancient times. In the same way, God always lived, and so all the avatars are here, and when your heart is attuned to them you know them. They are here today. It is a fact, my friends, that many people do see Jesus today, as they do see Krishna and Rama: there is no room for agnosticism or scepticism here. This point can be argued on the highest basis of philosophy, but when you have seen an avatar, you know that your heart is highly purified. Surrender your soul to be tuned and played upon by the avatar, like a flute, and then you will hear the music, 'Tat Twam Asi' (That thou art) issuing from it.”

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)

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)

[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)
