Memories of our Divine Mother: 11. ASHLEY GARDENS

The real cathedral

In those early days we all had the pleasure of going for personal visits to Shri Mataji and Sir CP's apartment in Ashley Gardens, next to the cathedral in Victoria. Of course, Shri Mataji's apartment was the real cathedral.

Yes I do try

I was with Mother at Ashley Gardens [where She moved to in about 1978]. The flat was on the top floor and overlooked the Roman Catholic Cathedral of London, Westminster Cathedral. I noticed that Her flat was near the east end of the cathedral and mentioned this to Mother.”Yes, I do try"Was Her reply. worshipers would always kneel towards the main altar at the east end of the church. So even though they did not realize it, they were kneeling in the right direction.

At one point Mother had a maid who was an Indian Christian. She was a bit tricky and complained to the Jesuits at the cathedral about Mother, not in Her capacity as an employer, but because She was divine, in that many people who came to the flat recognized Her as such. Well, that was more or less the problem, one intuited. One evening Sir CP had a diplomatic party and Mother had had some caterers in. They brought some crates of alcohol, whisky or wine or something like that and these were left overnight when the party was finished. The following morning the Jesuits happened to turn up to"defend the faith.”They eyed the crates of drink lying in the hallway, waiting to be returned to the caterers and Mother asked them if they would like a crate of whisky. They could not believe their good fortune and left delighted, without troubling Mother with their intellects. The maid had lost out to the real interest of the Jesuits, it seemed.

Mother said the noise of the wine being delivered every morning to the cathedral across the road for the communion service, or whatever they used it for, was deafening. It was just like a pub. In fact, one morning when I was there, before I knew it was the church booze being delivered, I thought it was a pub! The Jesuits got the form of the spirit they wanted and were very happy and the maid couldn't do much about it.

Feeling the love

I was at Ashley Gardens once and I didn't really have any clothes much. And Mother gave me a coat, this beautiful coat and I remember going back home to Brighton on the train, feeling totally" " feeling the love of having been there with Shri Mataji and Her patience and Her working on me and totally covered in this coat while I was sitting on the train. I can remember it now. It was an amazing feeling. And I've still got the coat and the shoes and the shawl and everything else.

She has this way of putting people at their ease

My first ever visit [to Ashley Gardens] came after attending only two of Her programs, so it was my third encounter with Shri Mataji. She has this way of putting people at their ease" " instantly. I remember I walked in clutching a brown paper bag containing seven limes and seven chillies without the faintest idea why She had asked me to bring them along. I had a vague notion of Her Holiness blending them in a food mixer, then popping in some mystical Ayurveda to make a curing elixir. She took one motherly, enthusiastic look at me, clutching my madka, and laughed," You don't need them. You're better!"

She Mataji asked me how I had cleared myself. I explained that it all got drawn out. I told Her I'd had nightmares about war. She asked me if I'd ever been in a war and when I told Her that I hadn't, She seemed to go into a concentrated reflection on this.

She told me that it was the duty of the born realized to help the others. She likened it to us all being in a tall building. The born realized are on a higher floor and, so when they look out of the window, they can see further. It's their duty to inform those upon the lower floors what they can see and thus enable them to come up to their level.

I would like to stress that this was over twenty years ago when Sahaja Yogis were in their infancy, so to speak. Nowadays, Sahaja Yogis seem, on the whole, much more evolved and aware than we were in those days. I'd also like to add that in the eighties Mother expressed Her displeasure at the born realized, saying that just because they can do simple addition, they think they are great mathematicians, adding that many had caused Her trouble.

Today we can talk quite freely about religion

When Shri Mataji was renovating Ashley Gardens, we used to go down to the McDonald's sometimes and have our lunch there. And when we were sitting down She used to say things like"Just imagine that today we can just sit down and talk quite freely about religion, talk freely about anything in fact, whereas in the days of Mohammed, in Islam, if you said anything, they just came out with swords. And people would just kill you because you said something which was out of place.”But She said that now we can't imagine what it is like, the evolution that has taken place, which has made people live in a very comfortable world, in terms of freedom of speech and being able to do what you want to do, which you couldn't do in those days.

One thing that I thought was amazing was that She said," I can remember very well all those times and how we lived in those days. And the women were not protected at all" "" in the sense that they were protected by the Prophet. But the problem with the women in those days was that they were in a male-dominated society. People would just come and ransack a caravan and rape all the women and take them as slaves. It was a terrible situation. And the Prophet, when He came, one of the things He said, so that people recognized the women around the Prophet, like Aisha, Fatima and so on, they had a veil, they were dressed in a particular way and they were recognized by people outside. So She explained the reason why the Prophet asked the women to cover themselves. It was to stop the men from being attracted by them and then, of course, behaving in a way that was very adharmic.

So Shri Mataji explained, one of the things She explained, was that, as Adi Shakti, She in fact incarnated partly in Fatima and partly in Mohammed. And that is why Fatima was like the deity of the left Nabhi, the deity of the Mahalakshmi, in fact.

I don't like to think of my children being hungry

It is just a time at Ashley Gardens and we were three of us and we were upholstering Mother's bed and there was a diplomatic party on in the evening, so we had to hide because there was no way we could get out of the flat. To get out, we had to go through Mother's bedroom and the flat to get out. So we were like stuck in Mother's bedroom. And She came in halfway through the evening with a tray of food and She said," I brought you these things to eat because I don't like to think of my children being hungry.”And after it was over we sort of sneaked out of the flat.

Up to the satellite

Somebody who'd been involved with some false guru and Mother said," Put him on the phone"And She was saying the mantras down the phone to him in Australia and it's like, you know, the mantras are going up to the satellite and down again. It was just incredible. And here was Mother really blasting these mantras into this person's ear the other side of the world. And it was somebody down in Sydney I remember and we were all in Ashley Gardens listening to Mother doing this.

8) Marilyn Leate said:

Greet me as you would greet your mother

My second visit to Ashley Gardens was with two friends, one who was completely new to everything and had with her her six month old son. The other who had attended one program a few months earlier and was having emotional problems because she was breaking up with her partner.

When Shri Mataji entered the sitting room to meet us, the friend, who was completely new, moved towards Shri Mataji saying," I don't know how to greet you.” Shri Mataji replied," Greet Me as you would greet your mother.”So my friend threw her arms around Shri Mataji and gave Her a big hug, which, of course, Shri Mataji returned. Shri Mataji began bandhaning the little baby and put a lot of attention saying," I'm giving him so many bandhans because in these terrible times the born realized are under so much attack.”And She gave my case as an example. I'd like to stress that this was back in the seventies and, I am sure, it is quite the opposite these days.

To the other friend, Shri Mataji exhibited Her powers of understanding everything, for She outlined the situation the girl was in without her or any of us having opened our mouths. Her Holiness went into accurate detail, which could not be explained except that Mother knows everything. She explained with great care what this girl should do to ease her emotional pain and how to save the relationship" " all said in such a gracious, easy, humble, grandmotherly way, which belied the power She was exhibiting and kept us at our ease.

Even when She was asleep She was working on us

I remember in the days of 1978, when Gregoire [de Kalbermatten] was around as well. He was writing a book on Sahaja Yoga called The Advent, which everybody knows. And we used to be living in Finchley Road. And every morning She used to phone around nine o'clock, just after Sir CP had gone to work and She used to say," Okay, come over.” And we used to go to Her flat, Ashley Gardens, and spend the morning. Then we would leave at lunch time, when Sir CP was about to come. The least we could do was to try not to disturb Her married life and disturb Sir CP, who had an important job as secretary-general of the IMO/UN [United Nations International Maritime Organization].

Djamel Metouri

10) Gregoire de Kalbermatten said:

I stayed one year in London to finalize The Advent and saw Mother several times a week. And She still recalls laughingly that I was bombarding Her with so many questions. But She always replied, steadily, brilliantly. Only slowly did I cool down. In those days She revealed so much and mentioned things that I never heard Her uttering again.

I soon found Her so much more knowledgeable, competent and convincing than were any other teachers or gurus I had visited in several countries. She moved with total ease from the most practical and down- to-earth subject to the highest metaphysical consideration. It was a very special time for the few of us. She fed us so often, keeping us for lunch or dinner. Sir CP was always most gracious when he found us in his home, back from his long days of work at IMO, sitting at his table and sometimes wearing his kurtas.

Gregoire de Kalbermatten

11) Djamel Metouri said:

She used to work on us and we used to do all kinds of things. She was working on Gregoire's book. We used to go shopping with Her. And in the afternoon we often sat down around Her and would have a nap, with our Sahasraras directed towards Her body. And She used to work on us, even when She was asleep She was working on us.

12) Pamela Bromley said:

When you're with Her She just mends you

Quite early on with Mother at Ashley Gardens, I went up with Mother in the lift and there wasn't much space. I was standing opposite Mother and She just put Her hand on my sternum bone, there. I'd only just got my Realization, as well. Then She said," Ah, that's better. That's better now.”I didn't know that I was ill, but it was better. And it's just that Mother can't help it. When you're with Her and She's near you, She just mends you, doesn't She?”Gall bladder or something," She said.

13) Linda Williams said:

Divine law

We were invited to Mother's flat in Victoria, at the top of Ashley Gardens. It was the morning and we took Hester Spiro, then Fishburg. There must have been perhaps eight or ten of us altogether and I remember a few things. Firstly, Mother spoke to Hester, who was then a practising barrister, and Mother said," I understand divine law, Hester, but human law I cannot understand.”Then Mother offered us coffee and at that time I was a health fanatic and took neither coffee nor sugar. Mother offered me both and the Sahaja Yogi sitting next to me made it quite clear that one does not refuse anything offered by Shri Mataji.

Then a strange thing happened. I was sitting next to the door, looking at Shri Mataji, who was on the other side of the room. While I was drinking my coffee, I felt there was someone behind me and assumed it was Shri Mataji's live-in maid, who had been bringing the coffee and snacks in previously. But then Shri Mataji looked at me and said," Linda, your father is standing behind you. He has been very worried about you and you must tell him you are all right now and I will look after you.”My father had indeed died very suddenly of a heart attack two years previously and [my daughter] little Auriol had often described seeing an elderly man of his description standing at the bottom of her bed, after his death. We lived in a strange shadow world at that time. But after that day, he was never there any more.

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)

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...'

surah 78:1-5 An Naba (The Great News)
5889. Great News: usually understood to mean the News or Message of the Resurrection.

Abdullah Yusuf Ali, The Holy Qur'n
Amana Corporation, 1989

[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.”

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)
