I must ask the question - the Kalki avataar
It is my understanding that the power of Shri Kalki is coming from Shri Mataji, but it is manifesting through all Sahaja Yogis. In other words, it is manifesting through many, many individuals at this Time of the Last Judgment and Resurrection in order to usher in the New Age. i have actually heard Shri Mataji say that it is Shri Kalki that is manifesting through all of us, so perhaps Shri Kalki is a collective manifestation.
Have you ever heard this too, Jagbir?
You must know of a most important aspect of the Kalki prophecy, the promised incarnation of the Man on the White Horse. It is about the location of the village Shambala in India. No one seems to know where it is, if indeed it exists at all in the frist place.
Thus if you understand that this village is non-existant then Shri Mataji's interpretation points Kalki's eventual manifestation through human consciousness. Thus it is more in according with the Book of Revelation. Having said that, i wish to say that both Christian and Vedic holy texts are in agreement over the more important facts of the prophecy and the events leading to His Coming. After understanding Shri Mataji's interpretation you will realize both are in collective agreement, with one complimenting the other and vice versa.
According to G. de Purucker"The 'second coming' of Christ—not of Jesus but of the Christ-spirit—alludes to the universally held belief that Adi-buddha or the Christos, the Logos, manifests itself from time to time in the world. In other words, the 'second coming' is simply a new manifestation of the Logos, the Christos. As Krishna says in the Bhagavad-Gita:
Whenever, O descendant of Bharata, a decline of duty comes into being—a springing up of unrighteousness—then, indeed, I emanate myself.
For the preservation of the righteous, for the destruction of the evil-doers, for the sake of establishing Duty, I take birth from age to age.—Chapter iv, slokas 7-8
Here we have Krishna, the type-avatara of Hindustan, implying that he comes at different times into the manifested world as an avataric energy at the beginnings of descending or materializing cycles in human experience. He spoke in his divine capacity as being one of the gods who inspirit and invigorate our universe. It is obvious from the reach of this teaching that many gods can and do have avataric manifestations. The one who was in Krishna as the divine essence may have manifested as an avatara many times before, and inevitably will manifest again; and the same divinity which worked through Jesus must have sent a divine ray into other human beings in the past, i.e. into other avataric entities, and will do so again. In a way every human being's own inner god, who is a spark of the cosmic spirit, could say the same words as those ascribed to Krishna. For the average man today, buffeted as he is by the winds of destiny because he has no spiritual holding-power, it would be a manifestation resembling that of an avatara if his inner divinity — the heart of his reincarnating ego—were to express itself more or less continuously through his consciousness, and therefore through his physical brain. ...
One of the oldest mythologic Hindu legends tells how Vishnu plunges into the 'waters' in the form of a boar and holds up the earth on his tusks. The story is found in some of the literary works of the Vedic cycle as well as in the Mahabharata and the Puranas. In its earliest forms, the avataras of a deity are ascribed to Prajapati, the father of mankind and of the beasts, the vegetation and all the mineral world; in other words, to Brahma. Later forms of the story as given in the Puranas attribute ten avataras to Vishnu, the Sustainer. These range from the fish-avatara, through the tortoise, the boar, the man-lion, the dwarf, and so forth to Krishna, the eighth incarnation, and on up to and including the tenth, called the Kalki-avatara. Each succeeding avatara in the world order is in a higher grade of beings than the preceding one. The Kalki-avatara has not yet appeared, and this incarnation represents what the Occident popularly speaks of as 'the coming of the Messiah'—when all wrongs shall be righted, and when righteousness and justice shall be firmly established on earth.

According to Stephen Knapp's Kalki: The Next Avatar of God and the End of Kali-yuga," at the conjunction of two yugas [Kali-yuga and Satya-yuga], the Lord of the creation will take His birth as the Kalki incarnation and become the son of Vishnuyasha. At this time the rulers of the earth will have degenerated into plunderers." (Bhag.1.3.25)
"Lord Kalki will appear in the home of the most eminent brahmana of Shambhala village, the great soul Vishnuyasha." (Bhag.12.2.18) "At the end of Kali-yuga, when there exist no topics on the subject of God, even at the residences of so-called saints and respectable gentlemen of the three higher castes, and when the power of government is transferred to the hands of ministers elected from the lowborn shudra class or those less than them, and when nothing is known of the techniques of sacrifice, even by word, at that time the Lord will appear as the supreme chastiser." (Bhag.2.7.38)
The Vishnu Purana (Book Four, Chapter 24) also explains that," When the practices taught in the Vedas and institutes of law have nearly ceased, and the close of the Kali age shall be nigh, a portion of that divine being who exists of His own spiritual nature, and who is the beginning and end, and who comprehends all things, shall descend upon earth. He will be born in the family of Vishnuyasha, an eminent brahmana of Shambhala village, as Kalki, endowed with eight superhuman faculties."
The Padma Purana (6.71.279-282) relates that Lord Kalki will end the age of Kali and will kill all the wicked mlecchas and, thus, destroy the bad condition of the world. He will gather all of the distinguished brahmanas and will propound the highest truth. He will know all the ways of life that have perished and will remove the prolonged hunger of the genuine brahmanas and the pious. He will be the only ruler of the world that cannot be controlled, and will be the banner of victory and adorable to the world.
Here in these verses we find that Lord Kalki will come as a chastiser or warrior. By this time the planet will be filled with people who will be unable to understand logical conversations. They will be too slow-minded and dull-witted, not capable of being taught much, especially in the way of high philosophy regarding the purpose of life. They will not know what they need to do or how to live. And they certainly will be unable to change their ways. Therefore, Lord Kalki does not come to teach, but simply to chastise, punish, and cleanse the planet.
Furthermore, we also find the name of the place where Lord Kalki will appear and the name of the family in which He will be born. The family will be qualified brahmanas. This means that a disciplic and family line of spiritually qualified brahmanas will remain on the planet throughout the age of Kali, no matter how bad things get. Though they may be hidden, living in a small village somewhere, it will be this line of bhaktas, spiritual devotees, from which Lord Kalki will appear in the distant future. No one knows where this village of Shambala is located. Some feel that it is yet to manifest, or that it will be a hidden underground community from which Lord Kalki will appear." (end)
This is what Shri Mataji has to say:
"The word Kalki is actually an abbreviation of the word Niskalankh. Niskalankh means the same as My name is, which means Nirmala. That it is spotlessly clean. Something that is spotlessly clean is Niskalankh — without any spot marks.
Now this Incarnation has been described in many Puranas as will be coming on this Earth on a white horse in a village of Sambhalpur. They call it Sambhalpur. It is very interesting how people take everything so literally. The word Sambhalpur means bhal is the forehead; sambhal means at that state; that means Kalki is situated at your bhal. Bhal is the forehead and here He is going to be born. That is the real meaning of the word Sambhalpur.
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."
Shri Mataji Nirmala Devi
Kundalini And Kalki Shakti, Bombay, India — September 28, 1979
Violet, Shri Mataji makes it clear that Shri Kalki is going to be born from the collective Sahasraras of all who are taking part in the Last Judgment. He will manifest through collective consciousness and not take physical birth. Thus no human can ever claim to be the Kalki Avatar because He will have no biological father or mother.
It is the collective consciousness of millions of conscientious and dharmic souls calling forth for Divine help that will bring forth His incarnation. The worst is yet to come for humanity in future and that will trigger the consciousness necessary for His birth. Shri Kalki will manifest from the collective consciousness of those surrendering to the Divine Message of God Almighty—The Good News of the Last Judgment and Resurrection for humanity.)
Another obvious reason that Shri Mataji's interpretation is correct is because there is no such village by the name"Shambala"In the whole of India, or elsewhere in the world. Shambala just does not exist as a physical location. So no scholar can interpret it logically and claim Kalki will be taking birth there.
Stephen Knapp continues his Kalki: The Next Avatar of God and the End of Kali-yuga:
THE ACTIVITIES OF LORD KALKI
The Srimad-Bhagavatam (12.2.19-20) describes Lord Kalki's activities as follows: "Lord Kalki, the Lord of the universe, will mount His swift white horse Devadatta and, sword in hand, travel over the earth exhibiting His eight mystic opulences and eight special qualities of Godhead. Displaying His unequaled effulgence and riding with great speed, He will kill by the millions those thieves who have dared dress as kings."...
IS LORD KALKI PREDICTED IN THE BOOK OF REVELATIONS?
Here are some additional interesting points to consider. There are verses from the book of Revelations in the Bible that are very similar to the above descriptions in the Puranas about Lord Kalki. These verses are so similar that they cannot be ignored and may provide additional insight for Christians and similarities they may share with Vedic culture. In Revelations (19.11-16, & 19-21) it states:
"And I saw heaven opened, and behold a white horse; and he that sat upon him was called Faithful and True, and in righteousness he doth judge and make war. His eyes were as a flame of fire, and on his head were many crowns; and he had a name written, but no man knew but he himself. And he was clothed with a vesture dipped in blood: and his name is called The Word of God. And the armies which were in heaven followed him upon white horses, clothed in fine linen, white and clean. And out of his mouth goeth a sharp sword, that with it he should smite the nations: and he shall rule them with a rod of iron: and he treadeth the winepress of the fierceness and wrath of Almighty God. And he hath on his vesture and on his thigh a name written, KING OF KINGS, AND LORD OF LORDS. And I saw the beast, and the kings of the earth, and their armies, gathered together to make war against him that sat on the horse, and against his army. And the beast was taken, and with him the false prophet that wrought miracles before him, with which he deceived them that had received the mark of the beast, and them that worshipped his image. These both were cast alive into a lake of fire burning with brimstone. And the remnant were slain with the sword of him that sat on the horse."
This sounds so much like the incarnation of Lord Kalki that it could hardly be anyone else. Surely, by the time Lord Kalki appears, no one will have the slightest expectation of Him or His appearance. No one will know His name. And His army of brahmanas will be as pure as if they had descended from heaven. At the time of Lord Kalki's appearance, He will kill the remaining miscreants and deliver the few saintly people from the present conditions of the earth, changing it back to the Golden Age of Satya-yuga. In this regard, Revelations (14.1-3) also describes:
"And I looked, and, lo, a Lamb [a typical symbol for the Divine or an incarnation of the Divine] stood on the mount Sion, and with him an hundred forty and four thousand, having his Father's name written in their foreheads. And I heard a voice from heaven, as the voice of many waters, and as the voice of a great thunder: and I heard the voice of harpers harping with their harps; And they sung as it were a new song before the throne, and before the four beasts, and the elders: and no man could learn that song but the hundred and forty and four thousand, which were redeemed from the earth."...
So herein could be an indication that when the last of society is delivered from the earth during the end times, they will be those who wear the name of God on their foreheads, at least according to these verses. Also, as in accord with other Vedic prophecies, we can understand that there will be very few people left in the world who will have any piety at all. (end)
The biblical warning that"during the end times, they will be those who wear the name of God on their foreheads"carries the same Vedic message that it" is the collective consciousness of millions of conscientious and dharmic souls calling forth for Divine help that will bring forth His incarnation."Only those taking part in the Last Judgment can understand that the holy scriptures of Christianity and Hinduism (and Islam) are warning humanity of impending doom, pleading with them to wear the name of God on their foreheads i.e., meditate on the Divine in their Sahasraras (Kingdom of God) within.
The worst is yet to come for humanity. In future the unbearable degeneration of society will trigger the consciousness necessary for His birth. Shri Kalki will manifest from the collective consciousness of those surrendering to the Divine Message—the Last Judgment and Resurrection for humanity. Thus we can say that Satya Yuga is also about to break its faintest of Light and penetrate the darkest hour of Kali Yuga. Those who follow the Divine Message will experience Satya Yuga while the majority will sink deeper into the worst of Kali Yuga. It is the future decadence of humanity that will profoundly disturb and repulse the conscience of those taking part in the Last Judgment and Resurrection. It is the consciousness of these souls that will manifest and eventually bring forth His birth.
Every incarnation bears a special message. The central message of the Adi Shakti's incarnation is the warning to humanity to prepare and escape the Second Coming. Those souls surrendering to the Great Event and Good News of the Divine Message are conscious that Shri Kalki will eventually appear. They know that"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."They are the ones who, by their sustained consciousness of His destroying Incarnation, will eventually bring forth Kalki. This last incarnation of Shri Vishnu is already manifesting in our Sahasraras, the Kingdom of God within.
So Violet it is all true. Shri Mataji did say that"It is Shri Kalki that is manifesting through all of us"And that"Shri Kalki is a collective manifestation."Thanks for asking a most important collective prophecy that is promised by the holy scriptures of Christianity, Hinduism and Islam to eventually manifest. i am sure many seekers in future will benefit immensely from its harmonious synthesis of the major religions and help break the barriers that divide the religious masses. i really feel good as i too found knowledge that was non-existent before.
Jai Shri Mataji,
