Jesus proclaimed "salvation through knowledge, the self-knowledge of the divine light within"


The Gospel of Judas
"The knowledge claimed by these people (gnostics) is not worldly knowledge but mystical knowledge, knowledge of God and self and the relationship between God and self. In the Gospel of Judas, the word gnosis is used twice (50, 54), and in the second instance the text mentions 'knowledge to be [given] to Adam and those with him, so that the king of chaos and the underworld might not lord it over them.' This passage suggests that the knowledge coming to Adam and the descendants of Adam—the human race—offers protection and salvation from the powers of this world. As Bart Ehram also points out in his essay, the Gospel of Judas and Jesus himself in this gospel thus proclaim salvation through knowledge, the self-knowledge of the divine light within.”

The Gospel of Judas, pages 138-9
National Geographic, April 6, 2006


"The reappearance of the Gospel of Judas will rank among the greatest finds from Christian antiquity and is without doubt the most important archaeological discovery of the past 60 years. What will make this gospel famous—or infamous, perhaps—is that it portrays Judas quite differently from anything we previously knew. Here he is not the evil, corrupt, devil-inspired follower of Jesus who betrayed his master; he is instead Jesus' closest intimate and friend, the one who understood Jesus better than anyone else, who turned Jesus over to the authorities because Jesus wanted him to do so. This gospel has a completely different understanding of God, the world, Christ, salvation, human existence—not to mention of Judas himself—than came to be embodied in the Christian creeds and canon. It will open up new vistas for understanding Jesus and the religious movement he founded.”

"Did You See The Sun, A Light?"

The Devi Gita
"The Devi Gita's introduction of the Goddess clearly resembles, and seems consciously to have in mind, the story of the humbling of Agni, Vayu, and Indra as a mythological backdrop. Nilakantha immediately identifies the supreme lustrous power as Uma Haimavati, and the Devi Gita, in its concluding chapter, refers to the Devi as Haimavati (10.39). The introduction thus establishes by dramatic means the identity of the Goddess as the supreme Brahman of the Upanishads, an identification enhanced by the frequent use of Upanisadic terminology (verses 1.28-29). The blazing light symbolizes her nature as pure consciousness, her supreme, aniconic or formless form"

On the very first day of Self-realization and meditation Kash found himself standing on an endless cover of clouds. Where was this incredible, utterly peaceful Shangri-La that he had stumbled upon?

There was one distinguishing celestial landscape that held him spellbound — The Light! It was shining high above at a distance.

He kept gazing at it, spellbound by its indescribable uniqueness and infinite luminosity. It was an extremely bright globe, much brighter than many suns. Yet, in spite of its dazzling brightness it never strained, dazzled, or hurt his eyes.

Since Kash had never seen any light that bright he thought it must be the sun, but at a much closer proximity. His father, finding no other logical explanation, also agreed that must be the case.

After months of meditation it slowly began to dawn that what Kash was seeing could not possibly be the sun.

But Kash kept on insisting that it had to be the sun as nothing he had seen on Earth shone so bright.

However, a definite uncertainty dawned within his father's inquisitive mind. He had this peculiar habit of not believing anything unknown or speculative unless proven beyond the shadow of a doubt. The sun that his son was seeing did not make sense. Not only was it just above the Great Adi Shakti but it did not emit heat!

On September 11, 1994, at 13:05 p.m., the word Shaibhang (Self-illumined) at the opening stanza of the Sri Guru Granth Sahib indicated that there was more to this Truth than met the mind. If Guru Nanak had described Shaibhang to be Self-Illumined, then the "very bright sun" that Kash spoke about could not be true. Moreover, his extraordinary observation of 'this sun' created more questions and doubts. Kash maintained that:

     i) This 'Sun' is always behind Her at an angle but is not directly above, that is, at about 45 degrees.

     ii) It did not rise and fall like the earthly sun. The  "Sun"  above Shri Mataji Nirmala Devi is fixed and stationary.

     iii) 'This Sun' illuminates the entire Kingdom of God and enables everything to be clearly seen in fine detail, such as for example, the different hues of skin tone, which is why Kash could clearly see that Shri Jesus had a light brown skin tone and wore whitish-grey clothes, stretched taut by the sheer size of his muscular body.

     iv) Kash could not ascertain the exact size and distance of 'this Sun' despite numerous visits.

     v) In spite of its intense brightness this"Sun"emitted no heat. On the contrary, Kash said that the rays are cool!

Then one day he astounded his father by claiming that there are no shadows from the rays of this Sun! In all his journeys Kash insisted that he never saw any shadow in the Kingdom of the Spirit.

Though queried many times on this particular point, Kash maintained that  "This Sun"  does not create any shadow, a physical property which, however, is ubiquitous to our universal sun.

[In order to resolve this puzzling quandary of the 'different Sun' that Kash was daily witnessing, his father requested that he take this issue up with Shri Viswamata Nirmala Devi.

Kash went into meditation and the Divine Kundalini within his sacrum bone raised him up the Tree of Life into the Bridal Chamber. He burst through the clouds and reached His Kingdom within. There, the infinite light shone ever so brightly from above the Eternal Throne of the Great Mater Divinae Gratiae (Mother of Divine Grace) as She sat in Bliss and Joy. Shri Lok Mata Shri Nirmala Devi met him and the issue of"The Sun above Her"Was raised.

The Spirit of the Living God informed Kash that it was not the sun he was seeing, but a Light!

Arwinder and Lalita enjoying themselves at a playground in Magog, Quebec, Canada
Until to-date, both Arwinder and
Lalita claim that the Light
above the Devi in the Kingdom
of God (Sahasrara Chakra) is
always there to be seen.

A few years later on April 7, 1996 Kash's younger brother Arwinder was asked if he had seen any sun or light when meditating with the Great Primordial Mother.

Without any hesitation, Arwinder replied that there was always a Light at Her place, but he was sure it couldn't be the Earth's sun. When asked how he came to that conclusion he said that the Light was different, somehow, as despite its extreme brightness it didn't hurt (strain or dazzle) his eyes like the sun does. Arwinder then added that one can gaze as long as one wishes at this Light, yet it doesn't hurt the eyes! When asked whether this Light cast shadows or not, Arwinder responded that he couldn't recall whether there were shadows or not.

On February 23, 1998 at 11.40 a.m. Arwinder was again asked about this Light above Shri Mataji. He reconfirmed that it was always above Her. He was then asked whether there were any shadows or not. This time he immediately replied that there were no shadows. His father asked him whether he was sure about that. He replied that he was definitely sure that there were no shadows!

On July 10 1998, at 10.35 a.m. Arwinder was posed the same question as to whether this Light caused any shadows. Again he replied there were none.

We must understand that for a child to say that light causes no shadows in the Spiritual World, unlike the common daily experience on Earth, requires the overwhelming confidence of an authentic spiritual experience.

On May 4, 2004 at 7.30 a.m. 10-year-old Lalita was asked about this Light:


Father: What is above Shri Mataji's head?

Lalita: The Light.

Father: Can you look at it for a long time?

Lalita: Yes, you can look at it.

Father: Does it not blind you?

Lalita: It doesn't blind me.

Father: Is it different from the sun you see on Earth?

Lalita: Yes.

Father: Why?

Lalita: It's smaller.

Father: Anything else?

Lalita: It doesn't blind you. What else? ...... It's brighter. OK?

Father: Thank you Lalita.


This Light is always above the Great Divine Mother, and this Spirit of God Almighty resides within the Sahasraras of all humans. Unlike Her incarnation on Earth as Shri Mataji Nirmala Devi who is now an aging octogenarian, She is eternally youthful and of unsurpassable beauty. Kash, Arwinder and Lalita have always maintained that they have never seen any woman as beautiful as Shri Maha-Devi who is truly the Great Primordial Goddess. (Shri Saraswati, Laxshmi and Kali are also extremely beautiful but none are comparable with the Maha-Devi.)

"The Devi Gita, or Song of the Goddess, presents a grand vision of the universe created, pervaded, and protected by a supremely powerful, all-knowing, and wholly compassionate divine female. She is Maha-Devi, the Great Goddess, wielding all power (Shakti) in the universe. Yet power is not just an attribute of the Goddess; she is power or Shakti itself. To her most devoted followers, known as Shaktas (worshipers of the supreme Shakti), she is the auspicious Mother of the World, ever anxious for the welfare of her children. Unlike the ferocious Hindu goddesses such as Kali and Durga, the World Mother of the Devi Gita is beautiful and benign, although some of her lesser manifestations may take on terrible forms. And unlike some other beneficent female divinities as Parvati and Lakshmi, she is subject to no male consort. Subject to none, she is the Shakti of all.”

It is the last sentence that is most profound and true: "Subject to none, she is the Shakti of all.”Unlike Shri Shiva, Krishna, Brahma, Rama and Vishnu, who all have female consorts, neither Kash, Arwinder or Lalita have ever seen the Great Divine Mother with any companion. She alone sits on the Eternal Timeless Throne with the Light above Her at all times, and all the greatest gods, prophets and messengers bow down and meditate on Her. There is nothing higher or supreme to the Shakti in Heaven or Earth!

Elaine Pagels, The Gnostic Gospels
"As Jesus talks with his three chosen disciples, Matthew asks him to show him the 'place of life,' which is, he says, the 'pure light.' Jesus answers, 'Every one [of you] who has known himself has seen it.' 53 Here again, he deflects the question, pointing the disciple instead toward his own self-discovery.”
(53. Dialogue of the Savior 132.15 — 16, in NHL 233.)

“It is such a powerful Light. You can verify it whether it is eternal or not. You have to see for yourself you have such a unique Light within you. In the history of spirituality of this world so many have got Realization — such a Light in them. How could these stupid, flimsy, useless conditionings dominate you now, when you are the carrier of Eternal Light?"

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)

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)
