The Divine Light
Since Self-Realization the Light fascinated Kash. On the very first day itself he had stood alone on the endless cover of clouds, trying to understand where was this incredible, utterly peaceful Shangri-La that he had stumbled upon. There was one distinguishing Reality of this celestial landscape that held him spellbound — The Light! It was shining above at a distance he was unable to discern. Kash had kept gazing at it, spellbound by its indescribable uniqueness and infinite luminosity. It was an extremely bright globe, much brighter than many suns. In spite of its dazzling brightness it never ever hurt the eyes. Since Kash had never seen anything that bright he thought it must be the sun, but at a much closer proximity. His father, finding no other logical explanation, also agreed.
After months of meditation it began to slowly dawn that what Kash was seeing could not possibly be the sun. But Kash kept on insisting that it had to be as nothing he had seen on Earth shone so bright. He just thought that he was seeing it from a much closer distance!
Uncertainty came into his father inquisitive mind. He had this peculiar habit of not believing anything unknown or speculative unless proven beyond a shadow of reasonable doubt. The sun that his son was seeing disturbed. Not only was it just above the Great Adi Shakti but it did not emit heat!
But the lingering question was why was it visible only at Her place and nowhere else in the Kingdom of the Almighty Creator? If it was indeed the sun then it had to be seen at all the dwellings of all the Immortal Messengers that Shri Mataji used to take Kash to.But the lingering question was why was it visible only at Her place and nowhere else in the Kingdom of the Almighty Creator? If it was indeed the sun then it had to be seen at all the dwellings of all the Immortal Messengers that Shri Mataji used to take Kash to.
On September 11, 1994, at 13:05 p.m., after reading the word Shaibhang (Self-illumined) at the opening stanza of the Sri Guru Granth Sahib, the consciousness of Self-Realization indicated that there was more to this Truth than met the mind. If Guru Nanak had described the Divine World of Reality to be Shaibhang, or Self- Illumined, then the 'very bright Sun' that Kash spoke about could not be true. If the Spirit of the Living God was the Ultimate Reality (Al-Haqqah) then this 'Sun' at Her Abode was an inferior object.
The Divine Light is unlike anything known to man.
Moreover, Kash's extraordinary observation of this 'Sun' created more questions and doubts as he maintained that:
i) This 'Sun' is always behind Her at an angle but is not directly above, that is, at about 45 degrees.
ii) It did not rise and fall like the earthly sun. The 'Sun' above Shri Mataji Nirmala Devi is fixed and stationary.
iii) This 'Sun' illuminates the entire Supreme Abode of the Great Celestial Mother. Every thing is seen very clearly and in fine detail, down to the different hues of skin tone. (That is why Kash was absolutely sure that Shri Jesus had a light brown skin, and wearing whitish gray clothes stretched taut by the sheer size of His muscular body.)
iv) Kash could not ascertain the exact size and distance of this 'Sun' despite his numerous visits.
v) In spite of its intense brightness this 'Sun' emitted no heat. On the contrary, Kash said that the rays are cool!
Then one day he astounded his father by claiming that there are no shadows from the rays of this 'Sun'! In all his journeys Kash never saw any shadow in the Kingdom of the Spirit. Though questioned many times he maintained that this Sun does not produce any shadow, physical properties that are ubiquitous in our universal sun. Kash was told by his father to clarify this issue with Shri Viswamata Nirmala Devi. There was something strange about this 'Sun' that Kash daily witnessed.
Kash meditated and the Divine Kundalini at the sacrum bone took him up the Tree of Life into the Bridal Chamber. He burst through the clouds and reached His Dominion. The Infinite Light shone ever so brilliantly from above the Eternal Throne of the Great Mater Divinae Gratiae (Mother of Divine Grace) as She sat in Bliss and Joy. Shri Lok Mata met him and the question was put forward. The Great Primordial Guru explained that it was not the sun that he was seeing but the Light. They then meditated, after which Kash returned back to this hate-filled world of Louis Farrakhans and Osama bin Ladins.
His Light exists within all human — This Revealed Truth is Absolute. His Light emits cool rays — This Revealed Truth is Absolute. His Light cast no shadows — This Revealed Truth is Absolute. Spirit Beings have no shadows — This Revealed Truth is Absolute.
This Revelation of the Light is the collective truth of the Holy Scriptures. This Light has been announced by all His Messengers. Since the dawn of civilization highly evolved souls have been searching relentlessly for this Light. This is the Light of Shri Krishna. This is the Light of Shri Jesus. This is the Light of Shri Buddha. This is the Light of Allah, of Yahweh, of Brahman or any other name that humans give to Him. God Almighty is Light!
These experiences of His Light are within. This is the Reality of the Microcosm and the Macrocosm. We all live within God and He lives within us as The Light.
Note: At around 9.20 p.m. on March 23, 2003 Kash's father took his eight-year-old sister Lalita into her room to sleep. He also pulled out a mattress from beneath her bed and laid down - she insists, or rather pleads that her father sleep in her room every night. So there is always a few minutes of conversation.
While lying down she started counting the number of lights in her room - four light bulbs, one table-lamp, a florescent wristwatch and Shri Mataji's altar flame. Both confirmed that there were seven.
Then she said there were eight and that both had left out the Light above Shri Mataji in her Sahasrara. (Lalita continues to declare that the Light is always above Shri Mataji at all times.)
Her father asked her a few questions.
Father: "Is the Light warm or cool?"
Father: "Is it very bright like the sun?"
Lalita: "It is very bright but you can look at it.”
Father: "What color is the Light?"
Father: "Yellow or bright like silver?"
Lalita: "Like bright yellow. But what you mean 'silver'?"
Father: "Silver, like metal silver.”
Lalita: "I cannot imagine the color.”
Father: "What about metallic silver?"
Lalita: "But what you mean"metallic"? Tell me something which is metallic silver.”
Father: "Like the sun in the afternoon.” (This was a dumb response.)
Lalita: "That's not silver. I do not know what papa means.”
Father: "Like the color of the fork and spoon.”
Lalita: "That color?"
Father: "Is it that color?"
Father: "Then what color?"
Father: "Thank you Lalita.”
Lalita: "You are welcome papa.”
The next day the father waited for his 13-year-old son Arwinder to come back from school to double-check with him. He returned at around 4.40 p.m. and his father told that he will ask just one question about Shri Mataji in his Sahasrara. Arwinder asked what was the question.
Father: "Arwinder, what color is Shri Mataji's Light?"
Arwinder: "Like white, white yellow.”
His Light within
