"One of these documents [found at Nag Hammadi] begins with
scribal note in the margin, "The Gospel According to
Thomas." And the
first sentence of that document says, "These are the secret
which the living Jesus taught and which Judas Thomas Didymos

introduced by "Jesus said...." ...

the fear of death is another nonsense people has. First time
when I started my work, everywhere they asked me what about
death? I said, just now you're living why are you asking what
So many people ask me question what about death, why do you
want to know? I'll tell you about today, just now.
So there's another mad idea that we should know about our
death what's going to happen and whatever happen. Once you are
dead you are finished, you don't have to do anything after
that. So what is the use of knowing when you will die, what
will happen to you? Whatever has to happen will happen. We
never ask when we sleep what will happen to me, do we? But
this is permanent sleep and we worry so much about it that we
should know what will happen after death. One has to die at
the time whenever one has to die. Because whatever is born has
to be dead. But you do know that you have got eternal life,
you can never die.
Death is not this body disappearing. Death is where you are
absolutely without any control of your soul life. Once you are
a realized soul you have all the control, all the powers, take
your soul wherever you feel like, to be born if you like, if
you don't like you will not be born. To be born with the
people in the families, in the communities wherever you like.
There are many great souls, I know, that have taken birth
into societies which are very much I should say are in danger
of getting destroyed because of stupidity they do.
So this happening that we are afraid of death is absolutely
absurd for Sahaja Yogis. What is there to think even about
your death. There
is nothing like death for you, because you have got eternal
is not that you continue with your same body; you may go on
your dress. But you are living, you are aware and you know.
this body is not there, you will be there, all the time,
available for Sahaja Yoga for anything that is to be done in
the name of reality. So you must know your position as eternal
being, what is your work, what is your idea, what you have to
So one has to get rid of this idea of death because death
exist for you. It's finished. Moreover all such people who are
of their death go on having insurances, this, that, all
see. And ultimately what happens, all these worldly things we
here and depart. There is, I don't think, anybody could carry
little dust with that soul which is departing.
But in your case, when you people are no more on this earth, so
called, then you don't carry all this material thing, because

So your spirit is free and when you die is a
simple thing that you feel very liberated, absolutely. And
feel your freedom, completely. And you can decide what you
do. It's all under your own guidance, your own desire,
works out. You don't feel that you have come out of your body,
this is what should tell you that there should be no fear of
but on the contrary it should be welcomed. Because you will

So troublesome it is you see, all the time. Despite the fact

forget about death should be the easiest thing for 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
But those who have got Realization will enter into the
