Guru Gobind Singh Ji
No better appreciation could be there of the inspiring legacy left behind to the entire nation by that Guru than what Swami Vivekananda observed:
"Mark me, every one of you will have to be a Govind Singh, if you want to do good to your country. You may see thousands of defects in your countrymen, but mark their Hindu blood. They are the first gods you will have to worship, even if they do everything to hurt you; even if every one of them sends out a curse to you, you send out to them words of love. If they drive you out, retire to die in silence like that mighty lion, Govind Singh. Such a man is worthy of the name Hindu; such an ideal ought to be before us always."

Guru Govind Rai (Singh) in Line Of Shri Rama And Shri Krishna
by V. Wadher

"Punjab, rightly claimed as the traditional sword-arm of Bharatvarsha, has valiantly borne the first brunt of all the pre-European aggressors upon her. And one of the most luminous stars which rose in that northwestern horizon and shed its luster over the entire length and breadth of the country is undoubtedly Guru Govind Singh (born at Patna on Maargashtra Shukla Saptami -the 7th Day of bright half of Maargashira, i.e. 24 December 1666) the tenth and the final Guru in the holy tradition initiated by the great saint Guru Nanak. In fact, his life of pain and fortitude is a saga without many parallels in the world.

Rightly, Guru Govind Singh inherited the legacy of the fearless martyrdom of his father, Guru Tegh Bahadur. Guru Tegh Bahadur, with a view to instilling courage and confidence among the Kashmiri Hindus to withstand Aurangzeb's fanatical tyranny and threats to Islamize them, challenged the Moghal emperor to convert him first. And the great Guru preferred to have his head roll down in Chandni Chowk of Delhi rather than sacrifice his faith. Govind was just a boy of nine years at that time. On coming to know of his father's terrible end he exclaimed: "He saved with his blood the honor of Hindu Dharma. Oh, what a remarkable act in this Kaliyuga! He preferred to give up his life, but not his faith!"

It is with such a fiery note of idealism that the young Govind Rai embarked upon his life-mission even from his infancy. As a child he had drunk deep at the fount of Ramayana, Mahabharata, and the Puranas. He was inspired with the heroic examples of Sri Rama, Sri Krishna, Bheema and Arjuna. He felt convinced that he too like those great forbears was born to vanquish the wicked and to protect Dharma. He began preparing himself in a thorough fashion to play that historic role.

Though engaged with a very busy life, Guru Govind was a great patron of literature. The Guru himself wrote in all genres of poetry, though his forte was martial poetry. His great passion was to get the entire Hindu mythology translated into Braj Bhasa, the lingua franca of those times. Where necessary he also made innovations. His 'Ramavtar' and 'Krishnavtar' are examples. He assimilated the spiritual truths enshrined in the Vedas, Upanishads and the Bhagavad Geeta. He became adept in the Persian, Arabic, and Punjabi languages, just as in Sanskrit and Hindi, and was a peerless poet as well.

As an archer he was unequalled in the whole of Hindusthan. No wonder, equipped as he was with such a rare combination of brahmateja and kshaatrateja, he wrote in his auto-biographical poem Bichitra Natak that he was commanded by God to take birth to uphold the true path of Dharma.

The clues to what Guru Govind Singh achieved are to be found in his autobiographical poem Bichitra Natak (the Resplendent Drama). The most interesting formulation in the Bichitra Natak is that the Guru Panth is an extension of the great Raghu dynasty to which Rama belonged. According to Guru Govind Singh, Guru Nanak is a direct descendant of Kush, the elder son of Rama, and Guru Govind Singh himself is a direct descendant of Lava, the younger son of Rama.

On what basis was the Guru to fight the Mughals? If he were just a rebel, he could not arouse Punjab. Besides, he was a Guru who had no business to fight the king. But if the kingdoms of Lahore and Kasur (it is believed that Kasur was founded by Kush and Lahore by Lava) were in fact the legacy of the Gurus themselves, then to fight for regaining the throne of Punjab would become the legitimate right of Guru Govind Singh. Even in his person the Guru had started wearing a bow and a quiver of arrows which were the two distinguishing marks of Lord Rama.

According to ancient Punjabi tradition, Lava and Kush were born in Punjab. Ram Tirath, a place some miles away from Amritsar, is known to have been the hermitage of Valmiki where Sita took refuge when Rama banished her. The sage is known to have brought up Lava and Kush.

Govind Singh wrote that in his past life, he was a Rishi who performed great penances at Hemkunt. He has given a graphic description of a place in the Himalayas ensconced by twelve mountain peaks. It was here that he was ordained by the Param Purukh to take another birth for the specific purpose of uprooting adharma. This story went well with the kind of life he led and the things he achieved. He was born to Guru Tegh Bahadur because the latter too was propitiating God to bless him with a great son. The whole stance of this story is the same as of Dasaratha who also performed penances in his earlier birth and was blessed by the Lord that He himself would be born to him.

In the tradition of Lord Rama, Guru Govind Singh performed a year-long Chandi Yagna at Naina Devi (the shrine of the Goddess of beautiful eyes) overlooking Anandpur Sahib before launching upon his mission. Lord Rama had done the same before marching into Lanka. The Goddess, pleased with his austerities, had blessed Rama with victory. Lord Krishna had taken Arjuna to the temple of the Goddess for seeking her blessings before the battle with the Kauravas.

RULING DEITY

According to tradition, Chandi is the ruling deity of the Jalander Peeth, the triangle pervaded by the Goddess of which Jalander, Kulu and Vaishno Devi form the three angles. In Punjab when the Shaktas (the worshipers of Shakti) ruled the roost, The Mother was known to be residing in every nook and corner of the triangle, alternatively known as the Trigarth Peeth. The important shrines of the Goddess in this region bear testimony to this point. There are Ambala (Ambalaya - the home of the Goddess), Chandigarh (the fortress of the Goddess), Kalka (abode of Kali), Naina Devi (in the Shivaliks), Asa Devi (in the Dhaulaladhars), Hidimba (in the Kulu hills), Vajreshwari (The Mother of Thunderbolt) at Kangra, Jwala Devi (The Mother of the Flaming Mouth) at Jwala Mukhi, Chintpuri in Hosiarpur and finally Vaishno Devi (the Vaishnavi Mother) in the Jammu Hills.

No catastrophe to his personal self or to his family members, however tragic, could shake his rocklike resolve to pursue his chosen mission. When his two elderly sons, Ajit and Jujhar whom he had sent to lead the battle laid down their lives before his very eyes, thus did the Guru offer prayers to God: "O Lord, I have surrendered to Thee what belonged to Thee."Later, when his two younger sons Jorawar and Phatte were bricked alive by the Mughals for refusing to succumb to Islam, and the heartrending news reached the Guru, he simply lifted his hands in prayer and uttered the words: "These two, Thy trust, I have rendered unto Thee."The Guru's mother, Gujri Devi, from whom the two boys had been snatched away, broke her heart and died.

The tone of the historic epistle which the Guru wrote some time later to Aurangzeb is evidence of the majestic equanimity and the supremely high moral posture he maintained even in the wake of such dire calamities."I know you believe neither in God nor in your Prophet, nor do you know the worth of an oath on Koran. Did your God ask you to tyrannize over others? Fie on your sovereignty and on your regard for God and religion! Fear God, Who is the Master of earth and heaven and Whose vengeance is terrible. What if you have killed my four sons? By putting out a few sparks, you cannot quench the blazing fire. My protection is God than Whom there is no one higher.”

The Guru bore all the cruel blows of fate with an invincible will and fortitude and pressed forward in rousing and organising his countrymen in the cause of Swadeshi and Swadharma. He moved from the north to the southern parts of the country contacting and trying to string together the various patriotic forces. Finally, in the south he found a great warrior turned into a yogi, Maadhav Daas by name, and charged him with the task of proceeding to Punjab to lead the struggle there. Maadhav Daas, known in history as Banda Bairaagi, abided by the Guru's command and carried out the war of liberation with such remarkable ability and was crowned with such rare success - finally falling a martyr to the cause in the true tradition of the Gurus - that even to this day he stands as a glowing testimony to the magic touch of Guru Govind Singh.

KHALSA

The spirit of oneness and harmony which the Guru infused in society has also made him a social reformer of the highest order. His vision encompassed the whole of Bharat, and his love embraced within itself the lowliest in the society. The Panch Pyaare, the five self-sacrificing heroes of the Khalsa whom he chose through a fiery ordeal on Baisakhi in 1699 at Anandpur Sahib were those drawn from distant parts of the country, from Bidar in Karnataka, Jagannaath Puri in Orissa, Dwarka in Gujarat to Delhi and Lahore.

In baptising his followers into Khalsahood, the Guru once again followed the example of Lord Rama. Rama had created warriors out of the common people of the lower Vindhyas known as the Kishkinda where Bali and Sugriva, the twin brothers, lorded over the aboriginal clans. To make them invincible in battle, Rama had given them his name and a uniform which gave them a martial identity. The Khalsa was also created on the same pattern. The Guru gave them the Name to mutter and a martial identity to fight Mughals to protect Hindu Dharma.

Four things in the main need to be explained in this context. They are the concepts of the Sant-Sepahi, the Khalsa uniform, the ultimate authority of the Panch Pyare, and the aphorism"Raj Karega Khalsa.”

The first is the concept of Sant-Sepahi (saint soldier). In the Hindu tradition, the first model Sant-Sepahi was created by Lord Rama in the person of the monkey god Hanuman. He knew only two things- remembering the Name of Rama all the time and keeping himself ready for the greatest sacrifice at the bidding of his mentor.

The second is the creation of the Khalsa uniform in the image of"Narsinh Avtar," which is the half-man, half-lion incarnation of Lord Vishnu. The Guru's Khalsa had to modify the image a little. They had to keep their hair unshorn and make Singh as part of their proper names. This made them look as ferocious and brave like lions.

The third concept is the ultimate authority now vested in the will of the five beloved ones. Even the Guru had to bow before them. Lord Rama had also vested the final authority in his chosen five while sending out the"monkey"Warriors to find out where Sita was. His beloved five were Hanuman, Angad, Nala, Neel and Jambvant.

The fourth and last concept is the amulet of victory contained in the aphorism"Raj Karega Khalsa."Modern Psychologists tell us that success comes to those who don't think of failures. Guru Govind Singh understood the human psychology only too well. However, the slogan is as good as the translation of"Satyameva Jayate"Which means that the truth alone prevails. The Khalsa clearly stands for the one who stands for truth and never compromises with untruth. Guru Govind Rai gave the war cry of"Sat Sri Akal."It is probably the shortest capsule of Vedanta and it means that the Timeless has two manifestations viz Shiva and Shakti which reside in Him. When we read it together with its first part which is"Jo Bole So Nihal," then it means that anyone who speaks of such a Timeless becomes eternally blessed. He also does not fear death. Such thoughts, ideas and statements could not have been formulated by the Guru without deep roots in Hindu tradition.

Finally the Guru himself, while in the south at Nanded, fell a martyr to the treacherous designs of the Moghals and embraced Mahaasamaadhi (on 7 October 1708 in the true tradition of yogis.)

Rarely do we come across in the annals of human history a life of such all-round greatness as that of Guru Govind Singh, who was a yogi and a warrior - a martyr, a poet and a social reformer, a national emancipator and a dharmic rejuvenator - all rolled into one supremely majestic personality commanding the reverence of his countrymen and even of his enemies.

No better appreciation could be there of the inspiring legacy left behind to the entire nation by that Guru than what Swami Vivekananda observed:

"Mark me, every one of you will have to be a Govind Singh, if you want to do good to your country. You may see thousands of defects in your countrymen, but mark their Hindu blood. They are the first gods you will have to worship, even if they do everything to hurt you; even if every one of them sends out a curse to you, you send out to them words of love. If they drive you out, retire to die in silence like that mighty lion, Govind Singh. Such a man is worthy of the name Hindu; such an ideal ought to be before us always.”

"Akhil vishwame Khalsa panth gaje,
Jagai dharma hindu sakala bandha bhajai,
Nah chodu kahin doost asura nishani,
Firee sab jagatme dharma ki kahani!"

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)

“While the Spirit-Paraclete is the true broker, the brokers they rely on are impostors.”

“The pneumatological activity ... of the Paraclete ... may most helpfully be considered in terms of the salvific working of the hidden Spirit.”
Michael Welker, The work of the Spirit

“The pneuma is the peculiar power by which the word becomes the words of eternal life.”
Robert Kysar, Voyages with John

“The gift of peace, therefore, is intimately associated with the gift of the Spirit-Paraclete.”
Francis J. Moloney, The Gospel of John

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

“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.”

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)

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)
