Bearing Witness To May 5th. 1970“Jesus' kingdom was not like the popular expectation. He used the phrase 'kingdom of God' with a different meaning. His kingdom was not of this world (John 18:36). It was not like the kingdoms of this world. It was the kingdom of God, a supernatural kingdom. It was invisible to most people (John 3:3)—it could not be understood or experienced without the Holy Spirit (v. 6). God is Spirit, and the kingdom of God is a spiritual kingdom.”- Tom Harpur 
Shri Mataji opens the Sahasrara (Kingdom of God) May 5 1970
May 5th, 1994, was waited with much anticipation. It was on this day 24 years ago on May 5, 1970 that Shri Mataji Nirmala Devi, after a sustained meditation into the early hours of the morning, had opened the Sahasrara Chakra (spiritual Kingdom of God within). She accomplished this awesome feat by immersing Her Lotus Feet in the Indian Ocean, off the coast of Nargol (about 150 miles from Mumbai, India), and entering a state of Supreme Samadhi that has no parallel. It is nothing short of a superhuman feat, beyond anything known to humans.
Kash had absolutely no idea of any of the above facts. Neither did his family know any better as they were new to Sahaja yoga. Instead of instructing Kash to ask Shri Mataji Nirmala Devi how She opened the Sahasrara Chakra, his father told him to ask Her how She got Self-Realization!
Kash questioned what was the meaning of “Self-Realization" (baptism or being born of the Spirit) , but was told to get all his answers from the Great Adi Shakti. (Actually Kash's father just casually wanted to get some facts, expecting a short verbal answer. He was totally unprepared for possibly the most spectacular Revelation ever witnessed.)
Kash squatted on the floor in meditation. The state of Sahaj Samadhi was quickly attained as the Kundalini rose up from the base of the spine to the Sahasrara, the Kingdom of God that Shri Jesus kept repeating to ignorant, hostile humans two thousand years ago.
In a flash Kash transcended the ever elusive mystical barrier that veil ordinary humans from their inner glory - the glory of the Kingdom of God within.
The Light shone ever so brilliantly from above the Immortal Throne of the Great Celestial Mother as Shri Param-jyotih Devi  sat in Bliss and Joy.
Her child bowed down and exchanged greetings, noticing that all the Divine Beings were already gathered in advance. He bowed to all of them and exchanged greetings. They did the same in return.
The Great Primordial Guru got down from the Timeless Throne and walked to him. Kash noticed that Shri Mataji was wearing a crown.
He asked if he could request something from Her. Shri Mataji smiled and replied that She already knew why he had come.
Kash, slightly surprised, innocently asked Her what it was. She answered that that he wanted to know how She had got Her own Self-Realization, exactly as had been discussed a short while ago on Earth.
Although Shri Mataji knew that Kash's request of witnessing Her Self-realization was not what his father had in mind, She answered it precisely. The Adi Shakti knew that he (father) wanted to find out how the Sahasrara Chakra was opened on May 5, 1970. (It must be understood that for Her to know precisely the thought differences between father [how Sahasrara Chakra was opened?] and son [what is "self-realization"?] She had to exist in both their Sahasraras.)
The Holy Spirit then walked back to Her Eternal Throne and sat on it. Kash, who followed behind as instructed, noticed that it was made of solid gold and had a cushion on it.
He sat down beside Her on the right of the Throne.
Next to him was Shri Hanuman in one of the best dress Kash had seen. The Lord of the Angels smiled at him. He returned the smile.
Beside Shri Hanuman was Shri Jesus. On the left side of the Eternal Throne was Shri Ganesha.
Kash noticed that as usual the entire Divine Unity — Shri Buddha, Radha, Krishna, Shiva, Prophet Muhammad, Guru Nanak, and others — were sitting on the ground in a semicircle, with the Great Sacred Mother in the middle. All were in their normal meditative stance and squatting on the soft clouds with both hands at their knees, palms facing upwards — specifically as how Sahaja Yogis meditate on Earth.
Their spiritual form was of a 'solid' state, that is, it had form. For example, the clothes that they were wearing conformed to the contours of their squatting spirit bodies.
When all were ready a '3-dimensional projection' materialized in mid-air before them. It showed the feet of the Great Primordial Mother immersed in water, just above the ankles. The whole visual apparition was suspended in mid-air. It was like a drive-in theater but with a huge difference. Not only was the projection three-dimensional but it was stunningly real and alive.
In fact it was alive!
In Heaven the most blessed day was being witnessed. The past was being projected into the present. The Great Eternal Mother and Her Divine Deities were witnessing what transpired on May 5th, 1970 twenty-four years later on May 5th, 1994! The Great Adi Shakti was showing the actual past that was still existing in the present, a time dimension way beyond human apprehension. It was even beyond Kash's ability to visualize it as a projection, so life-like was this spiritual movie.
After about a minute or so the projection moved up Her form.
The face of the Great Divine Mother Shri Nirmala Devi was younger than the Great Divine Mother Shri Nirmala Devi presently on Earth in human form, but older than the Great Divine Mother Shri Nirmala Devi sitting on the Golden Throne.
The spiritual form of the Great Adi Shakti in the Sahasrara of Kash was younger than Her two physical forms of May 5, 1970 (when She opened the Sahasrara at Nargol, India) and May 5, 1994 (when She was in Cabella, Italy).
Put simply, the Adi Shakti watching the projection with all the other Divine Beings on May 5th, 1994 was younger than both Her past (May 5, 1970) and present (May 5, 1994) forms.
Again, in other words, the Adi Shakti watching the 3D image in the Spirit World on May 5, 1994, was younger than Her human at the time She opened the Sahasrara Chakra at Nargol, India on May 5, 1970 (47 years-old) and that living in Cabella, Italy on May 5, 1994 (71 years-old).
The projection showed Her sitting on a long, flat concrete structure, against a rocky background landscape and some houses, and facing the dark watery vastness before Her. Shri Sindura-Tilakancita  was wearing a white sari with a red border, and had a bindi on Her forehead.
The Lotus Feet of Shri Nirmala Devi were submerged in the Indian Ocean. She was in deep meditation.
Suddenly streams of red and yellow sparks of light began spewing out from the top of Her head around the Brahmarandhra, bursting about a foot or two into the air.
Kash said that these sparks "looked like fireworks,” "like a volcano erupting and shooting lava into the air.”
They came out in a steady stream as if there was a fire blazing inside the head of the Great Primordial Guru. But he could not see the interior of these "fireworks",” volcanoes,” or "fire” as only the frontal view of the Great Supreme Goddess was projected.
For about 10 minutes these "tongues of flame” kept issuing forth from the head of the Great Holy Ghost.
Then the fiery blaze stopped. Immediately a fountain of water gushed out of the top of Her Head about three feet into the air. It poured down like rain and the Great Celestial Mother was completely drenched by the Water of Life.
The Fountain of Life kept gushing for about 10 minutes.
Throughout the extraordinary phenomena the face of the Great Divine Mother was one of absolute serenity and tranquility as the greatest spiritual feat in the history of this universe — the opening of the Sahasrara Chakra, the Kingdom of God within — was undertaken by the Promised Comforter!
The Holy Spirit sat completely motionless as the Water of Life kept gushing forth into the air from the Primordial Kundalini within Her.
All the Divine Messengers were in absolute Bliss and tears of Joy rolled down their cheeks. This was the second time Kash saw tears in their eyes.
Their Joy was clearly unrestrained. There was good reason for such an extremely rare display of emotion among these Immortal Beings. The human form of the Promised Comforter had achieved the most important task of any divine incarnation — the opening of the Sahasrara Chakra or Kingdom of God for the salvation of humanity. The Supreme Spirit had activated the Adi Kundalini that would grant humans the power to baptize (awaken the Kundalini) of fellow beings, evolve into the eternal spirit, and enter the Kingdom of God. The Resurrection, the final evolution of Homo sapiens, had become a Reality!
After a while the Fountain of the Water of Life stopped but the Great Formless Mother continued meditating. For another five minutes they watched this visual projection as Shri Shri Nirmala Devi continued sitting with Her Lotus Feet still immersed in the Indian Ocean.
It was now early dawn on this infinitesimally tiny speck of cosmic dust known as Earth. All the Messengers of God Almighty had again witnessed that dawn of May 5, 1970, the first eyewitnesses of the Blossom Time that will enable humans to take a giant leap in Cosmic Consciousness.
Then the projection disappeared completely. The Great Holy Spirit then informed everyone that there would be meditation.
Everyone raised their Kundalinis collectively and began meditation.
After it was over Kash bowed and thanked the Great Universal Mother for probably the most priceless proof that Shri Adhiparasakthi Shri Nirmala Devi is the Promised Messiah.
He asked for permission to leave, bowed to the Divine Unity and closed his spiritual eyes. He then sank down through the clouds of the Kingdom of Heaven, back to this world of Alice Cooper and Rockbitch.
Note: The initial two discourses of John clearly portray the Fourth Gospel's central idea of a new awakening through Shri Jesus. The first is addressed to Nicodemus, the Jewish leader and theologian, who receives illumination from the light that has "come into the world” (John 3:19). Shri Jesus preaches that entering the Kingdom involves a new birth, a gift of the Spirit, and a new realm of existence different from the flesh life of this world (John 3:5). The second is to the Samaritan woman at Jacob's well (John 4:7-26). Here Shri Jesus informs that the water of Jacob's well will be superseded by the Water of Eternal Life which He brings.
The opening of the Sahasrara on May 5, 1970 where the fountain of water gushes out of the Divine Mother's head, also witnessed by Shri Jesus, is the Water of Life.
Thus the Devi makes the photo, the Sahasrara, and 5 May 1970 priceless!
May 7, 2012
Dear disciples of Shri Mataji,
Namaste, i bow to the Spirit-Paraclete who is your Self!
After almost 18 years I received an email and photo (appended below) in which Shri Mataji confirms it was taken just after She had opened the collective Sahasrara Chakra: “This photo was taken after I opened the collective Sahasrara Chakra.” In other words, this photo was taken on the day Shri Mataji opened the Kingdom of God (Sahasrara) i.e., May 5, 1970.

Here is something relating to the date of the Sahasrara of Virata opening - photo of Shri Mataji and some memories about those days.
[SY friends and family] group in Face Book
This comment which deals with Mother's response...
This comment which deals with Mother's response to an early photo of herself taken not long after she had opened the collective sahasrara chakra, appeared earlier on the forum but given today's date, 5th May and significance, I thought those who missed it then might enjoy reading it now.
The Paraclete Shri Mataji (May 5, 1970)
“Jesus' kingdom was not like the popular expectation. He used the phrase"kingdom of God“With a different meaning. His kingdom was not of this world (John 18:36). It was not like the kingdoms of this world. It was the kingdom of God, a supernatural kingdom. It was invisible to most people (John 3:3)—it could not be understood or experienced without the Holy Spirit (v. 6). God is Spirit, and the kingdom of God is a spiritual kingdom.”- Michael Morrison There were so many extraordinary aspects to those times with Shri Mataji in the early days. In some moments She wrapped us all so expertly in Her maya and 'play' it was indeed possible to become totally relaxed, swept up in the feeling, that to be in Her company was the most normal, natural experience and it was perfectly OK to chat, joke, even watch television with Her, or sip Cokes and eat samosas. But there were other times when in an instant, She became the Goddess, and promoted the deepest feelings of complete humility, gratitude and an astounded sense that we were in the presence of an absolutely Divine personality. One time we were looking at some early photos with Mother. There was one, a very soulful looking portrait, taken of Her in the early 1970s, a beautiful black and white image. I remarked on what a lovely photo it was - I think it was the one of Mother standing by a beach in a white sari.
'This photo was taken after I opened the collective Sahasrara Chakra. In this photo I even look a bit sad,' Shri Mataji said when She looked at it.
Danya and I fell silent and waited for Her to say more. She had become very reflective.
'I look very serious in this photo. At that time I even stopped eating and became a little thin.' Then Mother continued, 'From birth I knew I was the Goddess, and my job was to save and raise up this doomed humanity.'
My sister Danya and I began to realize we had gone from a casual conversation about photos, to sitting at the feet of Adi Maya. Shri Mataji then expressed Her feelings on gazing into the collective Sahasrara Chakra of humanity. She said that before this had happened She always felt confident that when the time came She would be able to find a way to do the work of saving us all. She described to us both how it was only when She gazed inside the collective Sahasrara and saw the twisted and tangled nadis there that revealed all the problems of the human condition, that She realized how hard the job would be, and how complicated, and damaged the human race had become. It was these emotions - this realization, of the huge task that lay ahead - that She saw reflected on Her face in that early photo. There was nothing that either Danya or myself could say after this. All we could do was sit in silence feeling such profound gratitude for Mother's amazing compassion - Her ability to take on impossible burdens so that all of us could transcend and live better lives.
And 18 years ago (May 5, 1994) the great Devi was requested, in ignorance, how She got Her self-realization:
Her response was beyond all expectations, all the more since we were just a few months into Sahaja Yoga.
But what i would like to comment, in relation to the seaside photo, is this revelation given by the Spirit-Paraclete to Kash on May 5th, 1994:
“The projection showed Her sitting on a long, flat concrete structure, against a rocky background landscape and some houses, and facing the dark watery vastness before Her. Shri Sindura-Tilakancita Devi  was wearing a white sari with a red border, and had a bindi on Her forehead.”
i) Shri Mataji is back at Her beach-house which has to be close to the spot She opened the Sahasrara Chakra. We have to assume there are other beach-houses or property around;
ii) The high tide and the sea visible in the background;
iii) The long, flat concrete structure continues running from what looks like a gate on the right end;
iv) Shri Mataji is most probably wearing a white sari and a border is visible around the neck area;
v) She has a bindi on Her forehead.
Shri Mataji confirms that the photo was taken just after She opened the Sahasrara Chakra, and not day or two later. Thus She must have walked back to the beach-house from a short distance away. What i am trying to say is that in the photo the concrete structure continues further after the gate. It probably is the structure She sat on in the early dawn of May 5, 1970 and immersed Her legs into the Indian Ocean. But it could be another concrete structure nearby.
However, the high tide lends credibility to that fact i.e., one can only immerse the legs in the sea (while sitting on the concrete wall) when the tide is high. Otherwise, in a sitting position, it is not possible to immerse one's legs. That is also not possible during low tide.
Thus this photo, in relation to the Devi's '3-dimensional projection' of the actual event, is most significant to the credibility of Shri Mataji opening the Sahasrara Chakra(Kingdom of God) on May 5, 1970. It should become the centerpiece of our external faith, a visible reminder of our eternal Mother on that historic day. Otherwise it becomes just another image of the thousands taken of Shri Mataji.
But honestly, it has (become another image for Her devotees). All these years i never heard anyone talking about it until just a few days ago, yet another reminder of the poverty that is Sahaja Yoga. It took me nearly 18 years to find that it is priceless, one that will be now displayed and remembered with reverence and faith in my home and heart. The vast majority of Her so-called devotees never did so as Shri Mataji only told them it was taken just after She opened the Sahasara. (They collectively assumed that Shri Mataji sat under a tree and the photo was long forgotten, languishing among the thousands taken over the decades.) The Devi, on the other hand, confirmed exactly how Her incarnation (Shri Mataji) opened the Sahasrara Cakra, after which the image was taken.
Without the Devi's revelations the Sahasrara (Kingdom of God) makes little sense. So does the photo as i have seen it many time before. Thus the Devi makes the photo, the Sahasrara (Kingdom of God), and 5 May 1970 priceless!
regards to all,
My daughter-in-law's due date was supposed to be May 5, 2014, a most auspicious day.

“Jesus' kingdom was not like the popular expectation. He used the phrase 'kingdom of God' with a different meaning. His kingdom was not of this world (John 18:36). It was not like the kingdoms of this world. It was the kingdom of God, a supernatural kingdom. It was invisible to most people (John 3:3) 'it could not be understood or experienced without the Holy Spirit (v. 6). God is Spirit, and the kingdom of God is a spiritual kingdom.'"- Tom Harpur
Note: Those who are seeking God Almighty the greatest secret and surety of life eternal lies in the above message of Jesus Christ. And as i write these lines Kash—my son who entered the Kingdom of God hundreds of times—has rushed back from work and is taking his wife to hospital as her water bag has burst. My daughter-in-law's due date was supposed to be May 5, 2014, a most auspicious day. It is Kash's first child and i hope will be born today - a Tuesday and for me many good things have happened on Tuesdays. So i will be Silent for a few days and will not expand on Tom Harpur's quote.
Note: After more than 20 years meditating on Shri Mataji it never occurred that i check what day May 5, 1970 was. As far i know THE DEVI chose Tuesday for the most important happenings which i do not want to repeat. Over the years i knew for a fact that somehow the most auspicious blessings or events somehow took place on a Tuesday. Only today i have found out that the Sahasrara was opened on a Tuesday too!
“As soon as the Sahasrara was opened the whole atmosphere was filled with tremendous Chaitanya. And there was tremendous Light in the sky. And the whole thing came on the Earth — as if a torrential rain or a waterfall — with such tremendous force, as if I was unaware and got stupefied. The happening was so tremendous and so unexpected that I was stunned and totally silent at the grandeur.
I saw the Primordial Kundalini rising like a big furnace, and the furnace was very silent but a burning appearance it had, as if you heat up metal, and it had many colors. In the same way, the Kundalini showed up as a furnace, like a tunnel, as you see these plants you have here for coal burning that create electricity. And it stretched like a telescope and came out one after another, Shoo! Shoo! Shoo! Just like that.
And the Deities came and sat on their seats, golden seats, and then they lifted the whole of the head like a big dome and opened it, and then this torrential rain complete drenched Me. I started seeing all that and got lost in the Joy. It was like an artist seeing his own creation, and I felt the Joy of great fulfillment.
After coming out of this beautiful experience I looked around and saw human beings so blind and I became absolutely silent, and desired that I should get the cups to fill the Nectar ...”
Opening Of The Primordial Sahasrara
Sahasrara Puja, Paris, France — May 5, 1982
“Today is a great day for us, for all the Sahaja Yogis that on this day ... the Sahasrara was opened out. It was just a miracle I should say because I didn't think that I am at a point where it could be done. So I wanted to wait but some things happened that made Me think that it had to be opened. It was in such a situation that I felt if I delayed it anymore now it may help these false gurus to spread their nonsense all over.”
To Achieve Complete Freedom, Sahasrara Puja
Cabella, Italy — May 7, 1995
“For all of us the seekers the last work of the Divine of opening the last centre in the Great Primordial Being was done on the 5th of May, 1970. It is the greatest event of all the spiritual happenings of the Universe. It was done with great care and great attachment. It is not in the limits of human understanding how things are worked in the heavens. It is your fortune and God's Love that has worked this one.
Without this happening there could not have been a possibility to give mass Realization to people. One could have done it on one or two persons here and there, but to give such a mass awakening could not have been possible.”
Opening Of The Primordial Sahasrara
Sahasrara Puja, Paris, France — May 5, 1982
“So it was a turmoil ... and at this turmoil state only Adi Shakti had to come to establish the Dharma ...
When I was born I was shocked at the way people were. At that time I don't think I met many seekers ... First I thought I've come a little early ... but then I saw these horrible false gurus also throwing their charms on people and trying to control them. That made Me really, really think that now I'd better stop worrying as to what sort of people there are — let's start! And that's how the first Brahmarandhra Chedan took place in India. It was 5th May, 1970 ... in the morning time.”
Incarnation Of God's Divine Love

Jump Into The Ocean Of Love
Sahasrara Puja Sorento, Italy — May 6, 1989
“By saying there's no God, God doesn't disappear. He is very much there. Sahaja Yoga is the only way you can prove the existence of God and all that is said so far about all these Incarnations because the Seventh Chakra is now open. You get your Realization, and you become the spirit. It is so imminent that the Seventh Chakra had to be opened so that you pass from one life level to another level.”
Geneva, Switzerland — June 13, 1985
“What is the meaning of going into meditation? It means you have got connected to the Paramchaitanya, the All-Pervading Power. The minute you are in meditation you have established Oneness with the Paramchaitanya.”
Shri Mataji Nirmala Devi
“This Kundalini is the one which is called as the Kumbha; in Sanskrit language means the Aquarius. We call it as Aquarius, as one of the Signs, and is the same as Khumba in Sanskrit language.
So it is the Age of Aquarius, is the Age of the Kundalini... which will nourish, which is The Mother within you, which will rise, will give you the completeness of it. And which will connect you with your Spirit which ultimately gives you the enlightenment by which you become Collectively Conscious.
USA — September 16, 1983
“Without breaking the Sahasrara we could not have achieved the ascent en masse... . To keep Sahasrara open should be very easy if the western brains could understand and be aware of your Mother. When your Mother is the Deity of Sahasrara the only way to be able to keep the Sahasrara open has to be complete surrendering. For that many ask Me, 'How do we do it'?' It's a very funny question. It is irrelevant. If your Sahasrara has been opened by someone, and luckily that is the Deity before you, it should be the easiest thing to surrender.
But it is not ... What is surrendering? ... What do you have to surrender? A drop has to dissolve in the Ocean to become the Ocean, and a drop cannot be greater than the Ocean — can it be? So what is the surrendering? Surrendering of our conditionings, of our ego, and the artificial barriers we have built around us ...
But one should know this is the greatest of greatest opportunity for you, not for the Divine. If you are not available the Divine can find its own way of fulfilling its Last Culmination of Expression. Even to understand how immense the task is you need a surrendering heart.
The area of the Sahasrara is the realm of God. When the Brahmarandhra opens fully then the heavens open within yourself. The Kundalini, which has risen up and given you Realization, creates the opening by which the Divine starts pouring all its subtleties inside your brain ...
All of us can achieve that state of Nirvikalpa... After Nirvikalpa you cannot come down.”
You Have To Be In Nirvikalpa, Vienna, Austria — May 4, 1985
“When the Kundalini enters the Agnya Chakra, She enlightens it. Then Christ within you is enlightened or awakened. He sucks both these balloons of ego and the super-ego and the whole Agnya Chakra opens. There is simultaneous opening of the Sahasrara. I saw the Sahasrara of the Virata open. It was like tongues of flames. Just like when you dissect the human brain, its cross-section looks like petals of flame. In the center of it, it looks like a yellow hole. The opening of the Sahasrara is sudden. With a bang it opens.”
Shri Mataji Nirmala Devi
“I know all beyond the Vaikuntha but I have not revealed it so far. It will be slowly revealed by Me because people have not been prepared yet to become capable of absorbing it.”
Shiva Puja, Bombay, India — February 26, 1987
“You have to take a stand in your family, in your surroundings, with your friends, and you have to tell them, 'You better all get realized.' The reason for that is that the Christ who crucified Himself is going to come back with his Eleven Forces of Destruction. And when He starts He is not going to ask you to take any Realization. No one is going to be bothered whether you are going to hell. He will just sort out. But those who have got Realization will enter into the Kingdom of God. You have to enter into the Kingdom of God here, as I say, in the Seventh Chakra.”
The New Age Has Started, Houston, USA — Oct. 6, 1981
“Tolstoy argues, very persuasively, that the core teachings of Jesus have been lost to the modern Christian. Man is too comfortable with the way things are to really adopt Jesus approach to life.
Most of what passes for Christianity today is nothing of the sort. A great deal of it is self-serving. Jesus said salvation is personal—you don't need a 'church' to be saved. As Tolstoy explains, church's are largely the invention of men, who crave a hierarchy and order.
This book is a revelation, and can make Christians feel rebuked by Tolstoy's words.”
Wikipedia Article: The Kingdom of God is within You
“Now, where does such a man derive his power and knowledge,
Except from himself?
How simple and self-contained his true manhood!
How unfathomable the depth of his mind!
How infinitely grand and vast the moral height of his nature!
Who can understand such a nature,
Except he who is gifted with the most perfect intelligence,
And endowed with the highest divine qualities of character,
And who has reached in his moral development the level of the gods?”
Doctrine of the Mean 31-32 (Confuciansm)
“This inner vision is far more authentic than all the theories and philosophies for it is a practical experience. In fact this awakened Inner Eye is infinitely more convincing than the strongest intellectual belief for this experience of spiritual vision transforms the seer, thus demonstrating the extreme end of perception. The perceiver then realizes the narrow separateness dividing one from Reality.”

Undiscerning men, theologians preoccupied with scriptural lore,
Who claim there is nothing else, utter words with ephemeral results.
Their words promise better births through cultic acts,
Dwell at length on various rites,
And aim at pleasure and power.
These men are full of desire, zealous for heaven.
They cling to pleasures and power and are fooled by their own discourses.
They have no knowledge consisting in commitment, fixed in concentration.
The Scriptures speak to the world's weave of integrity, passion, and sloth.
Transcend it, Arjuna, free from opposites, forever in integrity,
Detached from things, in command of yourself.
All the Scriptures mean as much—no more, no less—to the discerning spiritual man, as a water tank in a universal flood.
