First Sight Of Lord Jesus ChristJesus was wearing a long, whitish-gray robe that reached His ankles. Another piece of cloth was draped across His right shoulder and diagonally down the left waist. He was tall, big boned and muscular. He had a beard, with wavy hair cascading into curly locks. The eyes were either dark brown or black.
Although not of Christian faith Kashs family began celebrating Christmas in 1992. (At this time none of the family knew Shri Mataji as Kash only started meditating a year later.) There were two particular reasons for this act of faith.
The first was the special appeal of Jesus crucifixion that had developed a silent respect for Him, for no incarnation had ever suffered like Him.
"Death by crucifixion was an atrocious form of torture, 'the worst and cruelest' according to Cicero. A post was hammered into the ground, and when the victim arrived, carrying the other piece of wood, the patibulum, the two were fixed together, generally in the shape of a T. The condemned was usually attached to the cross with ropes, but nails were also used. The bones of a man crucified at the time of Jesus have been uncovered near Jerusalem; the feet, placed one on top of the other, were attached to the wood of the post, (since a support for the feet was not used before the third century) with a single nail.
The victim who hung on a cross was continually close to suffocation; to gain breath, he pressed down on his feet increasing his agony or on a sort of a tilted ledge, the sedula, which cut into the buttocks but gave some support. The cause of death was not the hemorrhages caused by nails hammered into the wrists and feet but suffocation and exhaustion. And if the victim survived too long, the Romans broke his legs, which ensured that he died of suffocation. 1
It was apparent that Christ impressed the family much. Jesus' personal life revealed a righteous and fearless crusader against the powerful religious establishment, but a kind and humble soul to the weak and downtrodden. By His sacrifice on the Cross and subsequent Resurrection Jesus left an enduring legacy that is still beyond human understanding, absolutely proving beyond any doubt that all humans become the spirit after death.
It was with this supreme sacrifice in mind that Christmas was spontaneously celebrated without any feeling whatsoever that it was a foreign religious ritual. There was no fear that some jealous god would get mad and fry the whole family in hell. Or that irate parents would become furious and tear up the Christmas tree. Or that it would set tongues wagging in temple corridors and his family ridiculed by society. Or that he would be gently advised by well-meaning non-Christian friends to refrain from making a religious fool of himself. The sanctuary and freedom of Canada had removed all these obstacles.
The second was the nature of Canada. It was truly one of the greatest nation in the world to live. The very moment the family stepped on its soil at Mirabel Airport, Quebec, on October 28, 1988 there was a deep feeling that they had returned home.
The peace and harmony among the people from all corners of the world comforted the heart, mind, and soul. Part of this feeling must have been due to the collective spirituality of probably the most tolerant of nations towards fellow human beings, a beacon of hope for immigrants and refugees the world over. Canada was a paradise on Earth.
In 1971, Prime Minister Pierre Trudeau fostered the notion that Canada was a mosaic of nationalities, a land where every bloodline, from native Canadian tribes to immigrants from South America, deserved equal respect. This ideology of multiculturalism eventually led Canada to adopt perhaps the most truly color-blind immigration policy in the world. 2
According to the United Nations in 1998 Canada is still No. 1 in a global ranking of countries according to health, education, life expectancy and per-capita income . . . Its the fifth consecutive year that Canada has come first in the human development index ranking 174 countries. Canada also ranks first in equality for women, in line with last years top position." 3 (In 2000 Canada topped the UN table for the seventh successive year, followed by Norway and the United States.)
The first voluntary celebration of Christmas in Canada was an expression of inner joy in a nation of social security, racial peace, and religious tolerance; even its coldest nights comforted, warmed and healed the heart, mind and soul. There was always a unique sense of peace prevailing on Earth, a harmonious multi-national-ethnic-religious atmosphere that remains uniquely Canadian. Truly it is a blessed land second to none, a nation reflecting the qualities of the Great Spirit in heart, mind and soul.
Christmas was celebrated for the very first time in 1992 and the reasons are worth repeating: there were no parents, friends or relatives to ridicule the family, impose culturally correct views, rebuke religious shortcomings, or engage in collective gossip for observing the birth of Christ.
A Christmas tree was decorated nearly a month in advance, and the lights left to twinkle entire nights, a bold statement to that the family had accepted the Universal Savior. Christmas carols were played practically every day and "Silent Night" became everyone's favorite. A circle of mistletoe was hung on the door. This was the family's first Christmas.
Then came 1993.
The Christmas Day of 1993, just weeks after Kash had met the Holy Spirit of the Almighty Creator, turned out to be the most special ever. He was told to request Shri Adhiparasakthi Devi if it was possible to visit Shri Jesus and wish Him a Merry Christmas.
Kash meditated and the Power of the Holy Spirit (Mother Kundalini) coiled in his sacrum bone snaked up the Tree of Life into the Kingdom of God (Sahasrara Chakra). The Everlasting Light shone ever so dazzlingly from above the Golden Throne of the Great Holy Spirit as Shri Mataji Nirmala Devi sat in Bliss and Joy.
After the customary greetings he asked if She could fulfill his wish of visiting Shri Jesus.
The Holy Spirit replied that of course She would and got down from Her Throne. She then stretched Her Hands, with palms facing upwards, towards him and requested him put his palms, turned downwards, over them.
He followed Her instructions. Immediately he found himself being lifted a few inches above the carpet of clouds on which he had been standing earlier. Both then started traveling at super-warp speed into the Universe.
Upon reaching Shri Jesus place they stopped at a short distance away. The whole area was glowing softly, as if charged by a Divine presence.
Shri Jesus, who knew that visitors had arrived, started walking on the soft clouds towards them to greet them.
He was wearing a long, whitish-gray robe that reached His ankles. Another piece of cloth was draped across His right shoulder and diagonally down the left waist. He was tall, big boned and muscular. He had a beard, with wavy hair cascading into curly locks. The eyes were either dark brown or black. Kash noticed that His skin was light brown, and was of ethereal form. Jesus Christ looked very fresh and youthful, as if He had just stepped out of a shower and groomed Himself.
Kash then wished Him Merry Christmas and the same greetings returned by the Universal Savior. The Great Mater Christi (Mother of Christ) also conveyed Her season greetings and Shri Jesus bowed to Her with hands folded in deference.
They then walked back to His place and sat down to meditate.
Kash clearly noticed the immense size and strength of Shri Jesus as in that squatting position His biceps and thighs really stretched the fabric taut. There was no doubt that Shri Jesus was physically a very strong person, a towering hunk of massive masculinity.
All raised their Kundalinis and went into meditation.
When finished Kash bowed with folded hands to the Universal Savior in obeisance, again wishing Him a 'Merry Christmas,' and left with the Spirit of the Living God to Her abode.
He then requested to return and was given permission. As he closed the eyes of his spiritual body he left the Templum Spiritus Sanctus within and returned to this world of insatiable greed and wanton consumption.
Note: According to Kash all the Universal Beings always look very fresh, clean and neat, as if they had just taken a bath and groomed themselves. Immaculate cleanliness is one of the many distinguishing characteristics of the Heavenly Hosts. The sight, neatness and radiance of Shri Jesus especially impressed Kash. On his first encounter this radiating cleanliness was overwhelmingly evident.
QUOTES OF THE PARACLETE SHRI MATAJI
The Paraclete Shri Mataji
"Like Michelangelo you can say he is a great personality. He has shown Christ in the real way. If you see the Sistine Chapel that is the Judgment he has shown so well that is happening today! Christ standing like a strong man there and not like bones they show in the Catholic Church. I feel they are sadists always talking about Christ and putting Christ just like a bone structure. I feel like crying when I see all this. Can they carry the Cross, any one of them? Like Christ with that skinny body, would He carry the Cross? He is the One who has died for our sins and miseries and you want to show Him as such a miserable person! . . .
How can you judge Christ? You have no powers to judge Him? First become the spirit then you will know what He was. But nobody wants to talk about that. . . .
Thats why Christ has said in the second verse of Matthews, He said in the second chapter that, "you will be calling Me Christ! Christ! and I will now know you." These are the people and you dont become one of them. You know Him. You see Him. You will find Him here within yourself, awakened, He resides. Be sensible. Be wise."
The Paraclete Shri Mataji

The ancient Romans pioneered what was possibly the most cruel form of torture ever devised by man: Crucifixion. They would drive spikes into their victim's ankles and wrists, smashing his nerves. He would hang there in blinding sheets of pain, slowly suffocating and dehydrating for days, until he finally expired. Jesus was whipped and beaten, literally beyond recognition, then nailed to a cross between two common criminals.
"Apparently, the first known practice of crucifixion was by the Persians. Alexander and his generals brought it back to the Mediterranean world -- to Egypt and to Carthage. The Romans apparently learned the practice from the Carthaginians and (as with almost everything the Romans did) rapidly developed a very high degree of efficiency and skill at it. A number of Roman authors (Livy, Cicer, Tacitus) comment on crucifixion, and several innovations, modifications, and variations are described in the ancient literature.
For instance, the upright portion of the cross (or stipes) could have the cross-arm (or patibulum) attached two or three feet below its top in what we commonly think of as the Latin cross. The most common form used in our Lord's day, however, was the Tau cross, shaped like our T. In this cross the patibulum was placed in a notch at the top of the stipes. There is archeological evidence that it was on this type of cross that Jesus was crucified.
Without any historical or biblical proof, Medieval and Renaissance painters have given us our picture of Christ carrying the entire cross. But the upright post, or stipes, was generally fixed permanently in the ground at the site of execution and the condemned man was forced to carry the patibulum, weighing about 110 pounds, from the prison to the place of execution.
Many of the painters and most of the sculptors of crucifixion, also show the nails through the palms. Historical Roman accounts and experimental work have established that the nails were driven between the small bones of the wrists (radial and ulna) and not through the palms. Nails driven through the palms will strip out between the fingers when made to support the weight of the human body. The misconception may have come about through a misunderstanding of Jesus' words to Thomas, "Observe my hands." Anatomists, both modern and ancient, have always considered the wrist as part of the hand.
A titulus, or small sign, stating the victim's crime was usually placed on a staff, carried at the front of the procession from the prison, and later nailed to the cross so that it extended above the head. This sign with its staff nailed to the top of the cross would have given it somewhat the characteristic form of the Latin cross.
But, of course, the physical passion of the Christ began in Gethsemane. Of the many aspects of this initial suffering, the one of greatest physiological interest is the bloody sweat. It is interesting that St. Luke, the physician, is the only one to mention this. He says, "And being in Agony, He prayed the longer. And His sweat became as drops of blood, trickling down upon the ground."

"The Kingdom and the Holy Spirit
We affirm that the Kingdom of God, however guaranteed in the promises of the Father and embodied in the person of Christ, can never gain entrance or come to full realization in the fabric of human life apart from the agency of the Holy Spirit, who is indispensable to insure Kingdom entrance, to seal Kingdom membership, to implement Kingdom obedience, to build Kingdom character, to furnish Kingdom gifts, to empower to Kingdom outreach, to produce Kingdom growth, and secure Kingdom victory. . . .
We affirm (a) that the Kingdom of God is a central teaching of the New Testament and cannot be neglected without loss to the Church and the Church's influence upon society; (b) that millennial issues flow from the understanding of the Kingdom of God rather than vice versa; (c) that it is more important strategically for the Church to engage in building the Kingdom of God on earth than for it to resolve its disagreements about the millennium; and (d) that the foregoing affirmations and denials are consistent with the mainstream of historic orthodox Christianity."
