The Comforter will recall to their minds Jesus' teachings and "mysteries which are beyond the world and the things which will occur at the end.”


J. W. Stallings
"25 These things have I spoken unto you, being yet present with you.
26. But the Comforter, which is the Holy Ghost, whom the Father will send in my name, shall teach you all things, and bring all things to your remembrance, whatsoever I have told unto you...
(John 14:25-6)

Jesus now summarizes all that He has been saying in this section. Referring to the many things which He has taught them while He has been present with them in the flesh, He tell the disciples that the Comforter not only is going to remind them of these things, but also will go to teach them all things necessary to their understanding and happiness. The Comforter will recall to their minds Jesus' teachings, will enable them to understand truly and completely, and will develop and expand them into new and wonderful truths.” The Randall House Bible Commentary



"Jesus solemnly assures the disciples that they will, in the future, perform even greater miracles than He. By this He means to say that through the power of the Holy Spirit, they will bring about the greatest miracle of all—the salvation of lost souls. He promises them that whatever they ask for, in connection with their ministry of bringing the miracle of salvation to lost men, will be granted them.

The theme of this section is reassurance and encouragement. Jesus gives the disciples three basic reasons they should cease being troubled in their spirits. First, He tells them that, although He is going away, He will return for them so that they may ultimately join Him where He is going (vv. 1-3). Second, He tells them that, though He is going away, He will be the only means by which men may come to God and go to Heaven (vv. 4-11). Third, He tells them that, though He is going away, their ministries are not finished. In fact, the best is still ahead. They are going, by the Holy Spirit's power, to be part of the greatest miracle of all, bringing men to salvation (vv. 12-14).”...

25 These things have I spoken unto you, being yet present with you.
26. But the Comforter, which is the Holy Ghost, whom the Father will send in my name, shall teach you all things, and bring all things to your remembrance, whatsoever I have told unto you.

The Comforter will recall to their minds Jesus' teachings, will enable them to understand truly and completely, and will develop and expand them into new and wonderful truths.

Jesus has referred to the coming Comforter as the Spirit of Truth (v. 17)...[whose] primary function is the work of making men holy. This is the work we call sanctification.

In v. 16 Jesus has said that the Comforter is going to be provided to the disciples by the Father on the basis of His (Jesus') prayer that He should do so. Now He says that the Father is going to send the Comforter in His (Christ's) name. These statements are essentially identical and imply a joint action involving both Father and Son.”

Advocate, (Gr. parakletos), one who pleads another's cause, who helps another by defending or comforting him. It is a name given by Christ three times to the Holy Ghost (John 14:16; 15:26; 16:7, where the Greek word is rendered“Comforter,” q.v.).
Comforter, the designation of the Holy Ghost (John 14:16, 26; 15:26; 16:7; R.V. marg.,” or Advocate, or Helper; Gr. paracletos"). The same Greek word thus rendered is translated“Advocate“In 1 John 2:1 as applicable to the Comforter to be sent by Christ. It means properly"one who is summoned to the side of another"to help him in a court of justice by defending him,” one who is summoned to plead a cause.”



Reading Judas - The Gospel of Judas and the Shaping of Christianity
“From the very beginning, when the gospel says that Jesus came for the salvation of humankind, we are told that he delivers that salvation by teaching people about 'the mysteries which are beyond the world and the things which will occur at the end.' Yet contemporary readers may well ask: How can such teaching help anyone? Many people I have spoken with find most of it bizarre, if not simply incomprehensible. What message of any value could it possibly contain? The alien names and aeons, the strange and complicated use of numbers, and many missing parts of the ancient manuscript - all these make it difficult, if not impossible, to grasp the underlying message. Yet understanding this material is crucial, because it contains the answers to every important question in the 'Gospel of Judas': the nature of God, what it means to be human, why people suffer and die, why Jesus was crucified, why Judas handed him over, and much more.”

Overview of Chapters 10 through to 14 (Gospel of Judas)

“This long section contains Jesus's revelation to Judas about the origin and shape of the universe. This is the most prominent topic in the entire gospel - it takes up more than 40 percent of the 'Gospel of Judas' and dominates Jesus's teaching throughout. From the very beginning, when the gospel says that Jesus came for the salvation of humankind, we are told that he delivers that salvation by teaching people about 'the mysteries which are beyond the world and the things which will occur at the end.'

Yet contemporary readers may well ask: How can such teaching help anyone? Many people I have spoken with find most of it bizarre, if not simply incomprehensible. What message of any value could it possibly contain? The alien names and aeons, the strange and complicated use of numbers, and many missing parts of the ancient manuscript - all these make it difficult, if not impossible, to grasp the underlying message. Yet understanding this material is crucial, because it contains the answers to every important question in the 'Gospel of Judas': the nature of God, what it means to be human, why people suffer and die, why Jesus was crucified, why Judas handed him over, and much more.

Moreover, this kind of thinking is not as difficult to comprehend as it may first appear. Arcane as ancient cosmology may seem to contemporary readers, we are familiar with the basic concept: What we know about the universe directly relates to what we understand about human nature. We can see this kind of thinking today, for example, in the debates over evolution and intelligent design (or creationism). Here, too, people are trying in various ways to confront some of the most central issues that people in any age must face: What is the nature of reality? How did the world and humanity come into being? What is the place of humanity in the universe? Does the universe have a moral order or is it all random? What is the truth of the Bible and revelation - or, for that matter, any religious claim?...

In the 'Gospel of Judas', Jesus teaches people about the kinship they have with God and about how to live according to the moral order of the universe established by God. People, Jesus says, have spiritual resources within them beyond what they know. He explains this message by telling Judas about the nature of the universe - that another realm exists beyond the material world, and an immortal holy race above the mortal human race. If people can understand this reality, they can fulfill their highest nature and understand how they should live now. He explains that human beings were created following the divine image of the heavenly First Man, Adamas. To honor this divine image in people, God sent divine spirits to everyone, giving people the potential to turn and worship him. By looking within themselves, people can"bring forth the perfect human"- they can discover what is divine and immortal within themselves.

But people need to understand, too, how it is that they are ignorant of this higher realm and of their own inner spiritual nature. Jesus explains that although people are made according to the divine image and likeness, they are nonetheless created by the lower angels God put in charge of the material world - the realm of chaos and oblivion. Because these angels are themselves subject to error through their own arrogance and ignorance, they have led humanity astray by getting people to worship them. They confuse some people into thinking that human beings are righteous when they perform seemingly pious acts like sacrifice, fasting, prayer, and baptism. By performing these acts, such people become hardened in their ways and, like the twelve disciples, resist Jesus's criticism, especially since - as becomes clear throughout the gospel - following Jesus does not mean gaining power and glory in this world; it means being cursed, suffering, and dying.

This theme - that Christian discipleship means following Jesus by imitating his suffering and death - is certainly not new to the 'Gospel of Judas'. Already the earliest of the New Testament gospels, the 'Gospel of Mark', sounds this theme, stressing repeatedly its message of suffering discipleship. As we have seen, too, many Christians in the second century understood the death of martyrs in this way. What, then, is different in what the 'Gospel of Judas' says? The author stresses that the true God does not desire this suffering and death. Indeed, Jesus is sent to demonstrate that death is only a step into eternity. Suffering and death occur only because the world rulers and those who follow them have gone astray. Yet their allotted time will come to an end, and they will all be destroyed. Such is the justice of the true God on high. Nor will bodies of flesh be raised to eternal life; the flesh belongs to the material world that is destined to fall back into the chaos out of which it came. Only false 'Gods' promise that the perishable flesh can become imperishable. That is a lie. They and all those who follow them will perish, along with the world where they now rule.

Given this situation, how can people survive? In the 'Gospel of Judas', this problem is posed as an eschatological problem; Jesus talks about life and death in terms of what will happen in the end times. At stake is not merely the personal survival of people beyond the grave but the question of whether the world has a moral order, whether justice will prevail in spite of all the violence, unjust suffering, and evil that people suffer. The author of the 'Gospel of Judas' affirms - against all the seeming evidence of Jesus's death, Judas's death, and the persecution of Christians in his own day - that justice does exist, that the glorious life of the spirit will triumph over every evil.

Chapters 10-14 of the 'Gospel of Judas' contain the core of Jesus's teaching. Many things Jesus has only hinted at before are presented here more systematically. [17] We can best understand the thinking underlying the 'Gospel of Judas' by grasping some of the core presuppositions the author assumes. The author of the 'Gospel of Judas', like other early Christians, turned first to the biblical book of 'Genesis' to answer questions about human nature, moral order, and their relationship to God. But even as people today read their sacred stories in terms of what they know about science, so too ancient Christians interpreted 'Genesis' in the light of ancient philosophical and scientific thinking, especially astronomy, as well as Jewish interpretations of Scripture. Ideas from all these sources appear in the 'Gospel of Judas', as we will see. Another presupposition is that the world we live in was patterned after a higher, perfect realm of God above. These Christians read 'Genesis' knowing that the account of the creation of the lower world would contain hints about that heavenly realm, since this world is patterned upon it. They therefore not only read 'Genesis' to learn about the nature of this world but also sought clues in it about the nature of the transcendent realm of God above. In chapters 10-11, Jesus describes that realm to Judas.”

[17] Many elements of the theology and cosmology of the 'Gospel of Judas' are similar to a set of newly discovered writings found in Egypt that scholars classify as “Sethian Gnosticism" or simply “Sethianism.” One of these is athe Secret Revelation of John', with which several scholars have compared the 'Gospel of Judas', notably Marvin Meyer ("Judas and the Gnostic Connection“In Kasser, Meyer, and Wurst, editors, 'the Gospel of Judas', op. cit. Not only are there important similarities, crucial differences also appear. For example, in 'The Secret Revelation of John', the true God is not responsible for appointing the lower beings who shape the material world, but rather against God's will, the world comes into being at the hand of an ignorant and arrogant pretender god. An extensive episode tells of how this happens when a divine being, named Sophia (“Wisdom") acts without the permission of the Invisible Spirit and her male consort, thus setting in motion the creation of the lower world and the enslavement of humanity to its wicked rulers. For more on these topics, see Karen L. King, 'the Secret Revelation of John', op.cit., for more on Sethianism, see Karen L. King, 'What is Gnosticism'?, pp.154-169.





Our Lord explained the coming presence of the parakletos (paraklete, comforter, helper, advocate)

In the first portion of the Gospel of John, the holy spirit is spoken of as something descending from heaven to remain upon Jesus (John 1.32-33), as a medium into (or through) which one must be born (John 3.5), as an enablement for Christ to speak the words of God (John 3.34), as a medium through which one may worship the Father (John 4.23), as the essential nature of God (John 4.24), as a life giver (John 6.63), and as something to be received by the disciples (John 7.39).

It is clear from these examples that the essential character and functionality of God's spirit had not changed. However, the claim that John 7.39 makes seems to contradict everything we have discovered by saying "that the spirit was not yet given.”

"But this he spoke of the spirit, which those who believed in him were to receive; for the spirit was not yet given, because Jesus was not yet glorified.” (John 7.39)

Obviously, the spirit had been given in OT times, to Jesus, and to the disciples who were able to go out performing miracles and healing people. Nonetheless, there must be some essential difference between the spirit that we have described up to this point in our inquiry and that, which is described in detail in chapters 14, 15, and 16 of John in order to warrant the phrase “The spirit was not yet given.”

Our Lord explained the coming presence of the parakletos (paraklete, comforter, helper, advocate). The chain of events would be {1} the disciple demonstrates love for Jesus by keeping his commandments (John 14.15) {2} Jesus will ask the Father to send the paraklete (John 14.16; 15.26; 16.7) {3} the paraklete will be sent in Jesus' name to abide in the believer forever (John 14.16, 26). The paraklete is“The spirit of truth" (John 14.17), which will teach the disciples all things and bring to their remembrance all that Jesus has said (John 14.26), testify about Jesus (John 15.26), be more advantageous to the saint than the presence of Christ on earth (John 16.7), convict the world concerning sin, righteousness, and judgment (John 16.8- 11), guide them into all truth (John 16.13), and disclose Christ to the disciple (John 16.14-15).”

AN UNITARIAN VIEW OF THE HOLY SPIRIT





All that is changeable is but reflected;
The unattainable here is effected;
Human discernment here is passed by;
The Eternal-Feminine draws us on high.

Johann Wolfgang von Goethe (1749-1832), Faust



Woman-Saviour now we muster
To await thy advent sure,
In the cluster of thy lustre,
Come and leave the earth no more?
Then before thy gentle look,
Swords shall quail and warriors fail,
And the spear, a shepherd's crook,
Shall adorn the daisied dale.
Woman-power! Incarnate love!
Human Goddess come and be,
If the Bridegroom's tears can move,
Bride unto Humanity.
Thou alone of all can save us
Let us be what thou would have us!

Let it be known: today the Eternal Feminine
In an incorruptible body is descending to Earth.
In the unfading light of the new Goddess
Heaven has become one with the depths.

Vladimir Soloviev (1853-1900), Russian philosopher



“It was generally considered, at the turn of the next century, that the next Divine incarnation was about to come to earth and would be female, the advent of Divine Wisdom, or Theo-Sophia, and that the present age would be the age of making known all that which has been kept secret from the beginning.”

“There is no line of work or study which woman in the West does not undertake and does not accomplish as well as man.

It is impossible to gauge the significance of the present time or to realize what is in store for humanity during the next hundred years, merely from our own experience and from recorded history.

The Great Adi Shakti The Paraclete Shri Mataji
The Paraclete Shri Mataji
Some quotes of the Comforter The Paraclete Shri Mataji since the 1970's regarding the Last Judgment and Resurrection

“If we follow Him (Jesus) then we cannot be conditioned by anything because He talked of Spirit only. Spirit cannot be conditioned, conditioned by anything...

I am here to tell you all these things which Christ could not tell, and to fulfil what He wanted to say. All those things I am saying to you, it has already worked. You all have got realization. But develop respect for yourself, as Sahaja Yogis. Don't have funny ideas about yourself; just know you're a Sahaja Yogi and Sahaja Yogini. That's what is needed for a person if he is today celebrating the birth of Christ.”

The Messiah-Paraclete-Ruh-Devi
Christmas Puja, Delhi, India — Dec. 24, 1995





“Christ didn't say that, 'I am the Destination.' He said, 'I'll send you the Holy Ghost; I'll send you a Comforter; I'll send you a Redeemer; I'll send you a Councilor.' He talked about the future.”

The Messiah-Paraclete-Ruh-Devi





"Declare to all the nations now that I am the Holy Ghost and I have come for this Special Time, that is, the Resurrection Time.”

The Messiah-Paraclete-Ruh-Devi
Sydney, Australia - March 21, 1983





“In between Jesus Christ and His destroying Incarnation of Mahavishnu called as Kalki there is a time given to human beings to rectify themselves, for them to enter into the Kingdom of God, which in the Bible is called as Last Judgment.

The population of the Earth is at the maximum these days because all those - practically all those who had aspirations to enter into the Kingdom of God - are born in modern times and are going to be born very soon. This is the most important times because Sahaja Yoga is the Last Judgment. It is fantastic to hear this but that's the fact. It's the Truth!

Though you can understand that Mother's Love makes it very easy for you to get to your Realization and that the whole story of Last Judgment - which looks such a horrifying experience - has been made very beautiful, and very tender, and delicate, and does not disturb you.”

The Messiah-Paraclete-Ruh-Devi
Kundalini And Kalki Shakti, Bombay, India - September 28, 1979





"But they should also understand that this is the Golden Age of Emancipation, Resurrection and Last Judgment; if we can achieve it, all of us, including them also, will have the blessings of the Divine love which has been promised a long time back.”

The Messiah-Paraclete-Ruh-Devi





"Of course there are some absurd things which grew with misinterpretation and interference from unholy people, which are common in these religions. For example, Jews, Christian and Muslims believe that when they die their bodies will come out of their graves and they will all be resurrected at the Time of Resurrection, at the Time of Last Judgment, at the Time of Qiyamah. It is illogical to think what will remain inside those graves after five hundred years. Nobody wants to think and understand that it is not the body but the soul that will come out of these bodies, be born again as human beings and be saved through Qiyamah and Resurrection.”

The Messiah-Paraclete-Ruh-Devi





“There are lots of myths in the Bible and one of them is that at the Time of Resurrection your bodies will come out of the graves. This is not only for Christians, but also for the Muslims and Jews. Think of this - What remains in the grave after many years? Only a few bones. And if these bones came out how can you give them Realization? Think of it. It is a big myth. Not possible logically.”

The Messiah-Paraclete-Ruh-Devi
India - December 25, 1993





"That's what it is today. I do not know that what it is to that we are now in the Blossom Time, as I call it, because many flowers are born and they are to become the fruits. This is the Resurrection Time, which is described in all the scriptures, but it's not like this, the way they had described us. Something wrong with them that all the dead bodies who are in the graves will come out of the graves. I mean, how much is left out of them, God knows. Must be some bones or maybe some skulls there. So they'll come out of the graves and they will get their Resurrection. This is a very wrong idea.

Once I happened to mean a fellow, a Muslim from Bosnia and he told Me, 'I want to die for my religion, for God's sake.' I said, 'But why? Who told you to die?' He said, 'Now, if I die in the name of God, I'll be resurrected.' I said, 'It's all wrong. That's not the way it is going to work out. Resurrection is going to work out this way that at this time, all these souls will take their birth. All these souls will take their birth and they will be resurrected. As human beings they'll have to come.'

That's why we find all kinds of funny people these days, all kinds of cruel, criminal, all kinds of idiotic, stupid, I mean very queer, weird, funny ideas which find such, such a variety of people and such a tremendous population that we should understand they have to have their chance of Resurrection. But how many will come? That's the point. How many are going to come?”

The Messiah-Paraclete-Ruh-Devi
Philadelphia, USA — October 15, 1993




"That Jesus 'rose from the grave' to new life is a fundamental theme of Christian teaching; certainly it is the most radical. For even though most people believed in eternal life, the insistence of certain Christians like Irenaeus that their bodies would be buried, decompose—and yet rise again at the appointed time—was met not only with disbelief but with horror. Christians themselves were unclear about what kind of body this resurrected body would be. When Paul wrote about the resurrection, although his words are often mistaken as arguing for physical resurrection, he himself clearly says the opposite: 'What I am saying, brothers and sisters, is this: flesh and blood cannot inherit the kingdom of God, nor does the perishable inherit the imperishable' (1 Corinthians 15:50). Without claiming to understand exactly what happens, Paul acknowledges that resurrection is a mystery, in which, he says, 'we will all be changed' from physical to spiritual existence (1 Corinthians 15:51:53).”

Elaine Pagels and Karen L. King, Penguin Group (2008) p. 83



Malachi Martin, The Encounter
“The doctrine of bodily resurrection, linked closely to the soul's nature and destiny, suffers like a fate. The ancients knew little or nothing about the human organism — its chemical constituents, its functioning parts, its psychology — and even less about the nature of death. Modern man has measured corruption, can detail the chemical changes that take place when bodily life ceases, has a clear idea of what precisely corruption and decay of the human frame connote, and defines human death precisely by the cessation of the observable functions of the body. The three religions define death as the moment when the soul leaves the body.

On the other hand, the scientist cannot accept the"outside"explanation: that a god will"resurrect“The corrupted body. He knows that in a living body today the actual molecules which compose it were not part of it some time ago. In another decade it will be made up of molecules which at present are elsewhere: in African lions, in passion-flowers of the Amazon, in Maine lobsters, in earth in Patagonia, and in the fur of a Polar bear. For the scientist, the body as such has truly ceased to exist. No"shade"or reduced form of the body exists in an"underworld"or in Elysian fields. The body has ceased to exist. He therefore finds the resurrection of the body unintelligible.”

The Paraclete Shri Mataji





"So in this Last Judgment a new race, new race of great people is created. It is your own. It is your own power. Only to know how glorious you are. How great you are.

"So, as it is, you are already marked, you have already been chosen by Christ in his Last Judgment, and you are there.

“I am here to work for you day and night. You know that I work very hard for you. I spare no efforts, to help you, and do everything that is possible to make you all right; to make you pass this examination of Last Judgment; but you have to cooperate with me, and you have to go headlong about it, and devote most of your time for Sahaja Yoga and for imbibing all that is great and noble.”

The Paraclete Shri Mataji





“This is the greatest of the greatest things which can happen to anyone that you know. Also you know, this is the greatest happening, which was prophesied long time back as the Last Judgment. You know that this is the way, you are going to be judged. So we have to work very hard. We have to work. It is effortlessly given to you, alright. But to maintain it, keep it up to go high, we have to religiously work it out.”

The Paraclete Shri Mataji





“And that your Last Judgment is also now. Only through Kundalini awakening God is going to judge you. How is he going to judge you otherwise? You think of somebody now, a person comes in now. Here is somebody sitting to judge you. How? By how many hair-dressers you have been to? Or how many suits you have stitched for Christmas? Or what presents you have bought or how many cards you have sent? and to how many people you have sent some other things which may not be very palatable. That's not the way.”

And they are trying to attract you and you do not judge them. You only sit down and judge the Reality. It has started, it is a fact. It has started.”

The Paraclete Shri Mataji





"That Krishna has said once you get your realisation your problems are solved, physical, emotional, mental, all problems are solved and you become absolutely relaxed. That goes without saying. But I'm not here to sort of cure people and go to hospitals. Nothing of the kind. It's just who are the seekers will be blessed because this is the reward of this Last Judgment.”

The Messiah-Paraclete-Ruh-Devi





“Christ has said very clearly in the second chapter of Matthew second verse 'You'll be calling me Christ! Christ! I won't recognize you.' That's very true. It is not a question of who recognises Him, but He should recognize you because the advent of Christ is going to be absolutely terrible. He is not going to talk to you, convince you or comfort you or give you any council as I am trying my level best, but He will just come for the Last Sorting out because I declare that the Last Judgment has started. The Last Judgment takes place only through Kundalini awakening. There is no other way out. God is going to do it through living process.”

The Paraclete Shri Mataji





"But, logically, you must understand. Where should we reach? What should happen to us? As seekers, what are we expecting? This is a very, very precarious and important time is more to say. The Last Judgment has started. That has started. That's how you are all here and you are seeking. The way it will judge, is the Kundalini has to rise. Your have to become self realized. Then you start feeling your centers on your fingers.”

The Paraclete Shri Mataji





"Sahaja Yoga is for the emancipation of the whole world, at every level. Once we have people of a certain number in Sahaja Yoga, it will start triggering understanding of real righteousness, religiousness and our love for God, and enlightened faith in God. This is how the Resurrection time is going to be worked out. This is the Last Judgment time, and everyone can judge him or herself through the light of the Spirit.”

The Paraclete Shri Mataji





“If we have to change this world, and if we have to save our people from complete destruction, we have to take to wisdom, and that is only possible when the brain is enlightened by Kundalini. This is what is very important today, when we see that this world is on the verge of destruction. Of course, the Creator himself is very anxious to save us and that is why he has in these modern times which are called Kali Yuga, made the all-pervading power activated.

So, now a new age has started which is called the Age of Aquarius,

(Kumbha) meaning the pitcher carrier of spiritual holy water that is the work of Kundalini. The activity of the Kundalini is like the sap of the tree that rises and nourishes all parts of the tree and does not get stuck at one flower. Moreover these are special times. This is the resurrection time. The Last Judgment is done by the Kundalini. On the fingertips one can feel oneself and can judge oneself.”

The Paraclete Shri Mataji





"Of course, this is also the age of science and technology in which human beings have progressed beyond the stage of blind faith. And in this great happening of the Last Judgment and the Resurrection Time, one need not, and should not, believe blindfolded in whatever is said about ascent or salvation, but should treat it like a hypothesis, and observe the facts with an open mind like a, scientist. Of course, if a hypothesis is proved, then any honest, scientifically minded modern person has to accept it.”

The Messiah-Paraclete-Ruh-Devi





"Now this is the Last Judgment and those who miss will miss in any case. Christ has said, 'You will be calling Me Christ, Christ, but I will not recognize you.' So understand you have to become the Spirit as Christ has said, 'You are to be born again.' You may have faith in me or not - doesn't matter. You must have faith in yourself to begin with.”

The Paraclete Shri Mataji





"But in a way is good because this is Last Judgment. If by marriage, by temptations, by wrong doings, by conditionings if you have to go out, you have to go out.

I must tell you that also there's very little place in the Kingdom of God. Unless and until you prove to be good Sahaja Yogis, there is no place for you, for mediocre there is no place. You have to serious, deep, seeking, dedicated Sahaja Yogis otherwise you have no place.”

The Messiah-Paraclete-Ruh-Devi





"So this is the Last Judgment and you will be judged for everything that you do for Sahaja Yoga. One has to be very careful as to how you behave, what is your attitude is and how you should change.”

The Paraclete Shri Mataji





If you want to miss your own ascent, you can go ahead, you can chose, the choice is yours, this is the Last Judgment. And with this Last Judgment, you have to judge yourself. In the Koran it is very clearly said at the time of Resurrection, your hands will 'speak' and will give witness against you. There is a very big chapter on Resurrection, but the fundamentalists don't want to look at it. They believe their religion is the best. But what would it has done to anyone? It is so much misinterpreted... so much misinterpreted. Now the time has come, this is a special time which is the time of Resurrection, this is the Qiyamah. It is the special time of Last Judgment where you have to judge yourself.”

The Paraclete Shri Mataji





“This is the most important time because Sahaja Yoga is the Last Judgment. It is fantastic to have this, but that's a fact and is the truth, though you can understand that Mother's Love makes it very easy for you to get through your realisation, and that the whole story of the Last Judgment looks such as horrifying experience, has been made very beautiful and very tender and delicate and does not disturb you.

But this is the Last Judgment, I tell you, and you are all going to be judged through Sahaja Yoga, whether you can enter into the Kingdom of God or not.”

The Messiah-Paraclete-Ruh-Devi





"Today, Sahaja Yoga has reached the state of Mahayoga, which is en- masse evolution manifested through it. It is this day's Yuga Dharma. It is the way the Last Judgment is taking place. Announce it to all the seekers of truth, to all the nations of the world, so that nobody misses the blessings of the Divine to achieve their meaning, their absolute, their spirit.”

The Messiah-Paraclete-Ruh-Devi





“The main thing that one has to understand is that the time has come for you to get all that is promised in the scriptures, not only in the Bible but all the scriptures of the world. The time has come today that you have to become a Christian, a Brahmin, a Pir, through your Kundalini awakening only. There is no other way. And that your Last Judgment is also now.”

Say, in Mohammed Sahib, Dattatreya, Raja Janaka or Shirdi Sai Nath — there is no difference in their principle if you can just get your Spirit.”
