Today i feel a bit foolish that it took me that long to be rid of th


Dear devotees of Shri Mataji,

Namaskaar - i bow to the Devi who resides in you!

i have just realized that "Adi Shakti" is the 615th. name of Shri Lalita Devi ................... and Shri Mataji is the incarnation of the Adi Shakti — Primal Power; The First Cause.

Today that realization makes the ever-youthful, eternal Primordial Mother within far more significant than i have understood all these years. In fact i feel a bit foolish that it took me that long to be rid of the delusion. Part of the reason is that i was stuck with the word"Adi Shakti"Which, though carrying a lot of weight in the past, is today just 1/1000 of Her. i believe over the years even this figure would be further reduced!

It was my ignorance to regard "Adi Shakti" as the most important word to use and understand. But if i just quote, say the 618th. and 620th. name, my delusion becomes apparent:

618) Sri Atma
— The Ultimate Cosmic Soul.

620) Sri Aneka-koti-brahmanda-Janani
— Mother of all Universes.
— Her mind creates Universes at Will.

i believe many will not properly grasp what i am talking about, given the external fixation with the physical Shri Mataji Nirmala Devi. Maybe by understanding that Shri Mataji is the incarnation of the Adi Shakti, the 615th name of Shri Lalita Devi, my past delusion could be better understood.

Now even words like "Primordial Mother", "Divine Mother" or "Devi" will be forever inadequate. How do we grasp that She is the "Ultimate Cosmic Soul" who, as "Mother of all Universes", "Her mind creates Universes at Will"? ............. and She has thousands of names, the best 1000 making up the Sri Lalita Sahasranama. The more we know about Her the less will be known as our mind recoils at its own inadequacy to grasp the Unknown. Silence on the Self is the only way to pay homage in complete humility and egoless surrender to Her ... ......... and make genuine spiritual progress.

Jai Ganapathy,

jagbir

Yes Violet, i also 'knew' after some time that "Adi Shakti" is the 615th name of Shri Lalita. The thing is this realization was fleeting as the collective attention was always on Shri Mataji Nirmala Devi, and still is. It was always about the external incarnation and that was all the SYs talked about. In that surroundings you hardly have the awareness or opportunity to think otherwise.

The individual Mother within is the Devi/Shekinah/Holy Spirit/Ruh/Tao/ Aykaa Mayee. The holy scriptures give different names to the one and the same Divine Feminine. The information given also varies and in the case of the Qur'n almost non-existent and left out deliberately:

They ask thee concerning the Spirit.
Say: "The Spirit (cometh) by command of my Lord:
Of knowledge it is only a little that is communicated to you."

surah 17: 85 Al Isra' (The Night Journey)
Abdullah Yusuf Ali, The Holy Qur'n, Amana Corporation, 1989.)

Only the Sri Lalita Sahasranama provides the deep, detailed and enlightening revelations of the Divine Feminine, both esoteric and exoteric. This holy text about the Divine Feminine towers over all and is indispensable to comprehend the mystical aspect of the Last Judgment and Resurrection. That is why it is the Kitab Al Munir (Book of Enlightenment) of the Qur'n, without which one cannot understand God Almighty:

"Yet there is among men such a one as disputes about Allah, without knowledge, without guidance and without the Book of Enlightenment"

surah 22:7-8 Al Hajj
Abdullah Yusuf Ali, The Holy Qur'n, Amana Corporation, 1989.)
http://adishakti.org/kitab_al_munir.htm

Yes, Violet, it absolutely true that "many who have had their self- realisation, have not yet availed themselves of the 'introduction' Shri Mataji gave, to their 'individual Mother within', so to be confronted with the fact that the 'AdiShakti' is the 615th name of Shri Lalita Devi, would be 'not recognized in any way, either'."That is one of the reasons i keep saying that most of Her devotees are still in kindergarten, unable to progress beyond the subtle system. They are all stuck at the external aspect of the 615th. incarnation of Shri Lalita Devi. All they know, and probably want to know, is about Shri Mataji Nirmala Devi. You know how averse they are about discussing the Devi within. One can even be removed from the collective for bringing such suggestions, as has been the case of Russia. The same applies to other SY collectives too. So most of our ignorant and conditioned SYs will probably neither recognize the Mother within nor Shri Lalita Devi, of whom Shri Mataji Nirmala Devi is but Her incarnation.

Rituals are like idols - start following them too long and you end up in daily worship. Then you cannot rid yourself of this heavy yoke that seems to becomes lighter over time by virtue of the fanaticism of your faith and dedication. And as long as the attention is outside it is next to impossible to meditate on the Divine Mother within who is nothing but their own, eternal and blissful Self. What else does Shri Mataji mean by Self-realization?

Shri Mataji Nirmala Devi is indeed the Emissary of Shri Lalita sent to declare and explain in detail the Divine Message to all humanity. Shri Lalita Devi's 615th name is "Adi Shakti" and Shri Mataji Nirmala Devi is that incarnation.

That is all true Violet and i am just beginning to slowly realize them again but with greater clarity, faith and confidence after years of being side-tracked into confronting and arguing with skeptical SYs - just too much energy and attention was wasted doing so. It is indeed Shri Lalita Devi who has provided proof that Shri Mataji Nirmala Devi is the "Adi Shakti", an incarnation of Herself in that aspect. It is all about the Divine Feminine - the Devi/Shekinah/Holy Spirit/Ruh/Tao/Aykaa Mayee - and if we trace backwards we reach the Divine Source i.e., Shri Lalita Devi.

i think our awareness is just being aroused to awaken to the infinite, eternal, omnipotent, omnipresent and omniscient aspect of God Almighty - His Devi/Shekinah/Holy Spirit/Ruh/Tao/Aykaa Mayee within!

Violet, you wrote in a previous post:

"That is why i must have had a daytime visit in a daytime reverie, when Shri Mataji came to me, and anxiously asked me, not to forsake Her Message, Her eschatological message. i agreed, i would promote Her and it. Not long after that, i came to adishakti.org, and i was just amazed, at what i read there, and the evidence, and the accusations, of dereliction of duty. Then i knew for sure, what was happening. It was confirmation, of what i already suspected, that the Organisation had forsaken the Main Message of the Messenger, the continuing Message of Christ, the Resurrection Message."

You can only promote Her Message and the continuing message of Christ by promoting His Devi/Shekinah/Holy Spirit/Ruh/Aykaa Mayee within at all times! You must open the heart, mind and soul of seekers to their own Divine Mother within. They too must be awakened to the infinite, eternal, omnipotent, omnipresent and omniscient aspect of God Almighty - His Devi/Shekinah/Holy Spirit/Ruh/Tao/Aykaa Mayee within!

warmest regards,

jagbir

Dear Jagbir and All,

The above words have resonated deeply within in a Silence that is never-ending. i agree it is a true saying that we 'must open the heart, mind and soul of seekers' .... to their Divine Mother within. She is closer to them than their own Breath; for She is their Breath, their Life-Giver. She is beyond Words to describe, an impossibility to reach, without the Intervention of the Adi Shakti, 'the Christian Comforter', Ruh of Allah, Aykaa Mayee, Mai Treya, the Great Mother, Adi Shakti.

The experiences of the children take on new meaning, given this Revelation of the Scriptures.... the immensity of what has been revealed to human beings, because Now is the Time of our Resurrection! Everyone must meet their 'Individual Mother within', and She is within All Selves, whether they are recognising Her or not. But She is now within reach. The Sahasrara of human beings has been opened, since Her Advent of the Adi Shakti on Earth. Before that, the mass of people, have not been able to meet Her; only those who had endured spiritual lives of great penances, to reach the Divine within.... had achieved Her Introduction in previous Times.

We are just so fortunate today, that She is more accessible"within", just by having our Self-Realisation, and going with that. Having our self-realisation or spiritual awakening, is just the awakening. within that awakening, we have to avail ourselves of the 'introduction' to our Divine Mother within, which is why Shri Mataji incarnated, in the first place, being the Emissary of the Divine Mother within. If we don't do that.... we will not go forward. As it is not due to doing any kind of a 'work', that we grow spiritually, but it is through our relationship with our 'Individual Mother within' that we can even grow spiritually, and go beyond the mind, to the Spirit, and eventually 'become' the Spirit, where She is not separate from us, but where we are as One'!

This may all be overwhelming, but it is the Truth of All the Scriptures. i have never felt such long Silence, since you have mentioned this fact, Jagbir. It is an Eternal Silence that has no end.... an incredible, utter Silence. The Individual Mother within, is beyond any religious or organisational boundaries. She is there, expanding the Truth, Consciousness, and Bliss, making us individually aware of the "All That Is", that Her Incarnation, Shri Mataji Nirmala Devi, told us about. Thanks Jagbir, for bringing this to our Attention. i am ever grateful, that you have brought up this subject. i never knew anyone, would ever bring it up. This will open everyone's awareness, regardless of what religion they come from.

warmest regards,

violet





THE APOCALYPSE OF THE SPIRIT-PARACLETE
The fulfillment of the promised divine eschatological instruction
“The original meaning of the word ‘apocalypse’, derived from the Greek apokalypsis, is in fact not the cataclysmic end of the world, but an ‘unveiling’, or ‘revelation’, a means whereby one gains insight into the present.” (Kovacs, 2013, 2) An apocalypse (Greek: apokalypsis meaning “an uncovering”) is in religious contexts knowledge or revelation, a disclosure of something hidden, “a vision of heavenly secrets that can make sense of earthly realities.” (Ehrman 2014, 59)
Shri Mataji
Shri Mataji Nirmala Devi (1923-2011) was Christian by birth, Hindu by marriage, and Paraclete by duty.
“The Paraclete will come (15:26; 16:7, 8, 13) as Jesus has come into the world (5:43; 16:28; 18:37)... The Paraclete will take the things of Christ (the things that are mine, ek tou emou) and declare them (16:14-15). Bishop Fison describes the humility of the Spirit, 'The true Holy Spirit of God does not advertise Herself: She effaces Herself and advertises Jesus.' ...
It is by the outgoing activity of the Spirit that the divine life communicates itself in and to the creation. The Spirit is God-in-relations. The Paraclete is the divine self-expression which will be and abide with you, and be in you (14:16-17). The Spirit's work is described in terms of utterance: teach you, didasko (14:26), remind you, hypomimnesko (14:26), testify, martyro (15:26), prove wrong, elencho (16:8), guide into truth, hodego (16:13), speak, laleo (16:13, twice), declare, anangello (16:13, 14, 15). The johannine terms describe verbal actions which intend a response in others who will receive (lambano), see (theoreo), or know (ginosko) the Spirit. Such speech-terms link the Spirit with the divine Word. The Spirit's initiatives imply God's personal engagement with humanity. The Spirit comes to be with others; the teaching Spirit implies a community of learners; forgetful persons need a prompter to remind them; one testifies expecting heed to be paid; one speaks and declares in order to be heard. The articulate Spirit is the correlative of the listening, Spirit-informed community.
The final Paraclete passage closes with a threefold repetition of the verb she will declare (anangello), 16:13-15. The Spirit will declare the things that are to come (v.13), and she will declare what is Christ's (vv. 14, 15). The things of Christ are a message that must be heralded...
The intention of the Spirit of truth is the restoration of an alienated, deceived humanity... The teaching role of the Paraclete tends to be remembered as a major emphasis of the Farewell Discourses, yet only 14:26 says She will teach you all things. (Teaching is, however, implied when 16:13-15 says that the Spirit will guide you into all truth, and will speak and declare.) Franz Mussner remarks that the word used in 14:26, didaskein, "means literally 'teach, instruct,' but in John it nearly always means to reveal.” (Stevick 2011, 292-7)

I was the one who was born again and again. But now in my complete form and complete powers I have come on this Earth not only for salvation of human beings, not only for their emancipation, but for granting them the Kingdom of Heaven, the joy, the bliss that your Father wants to bestow upon you.”
