Good Friday Greetings"But His Message is not crucifixion. People wear the cross and I feel very hurt about it. He crucified Himself. But that's not the Message. That's not [what] you should celebrate, that He crucified. There are people who celebrate it. You have to celebrate His Resurrection; Resurrection because human beings are to be resurrected." Shri Mataji
The same evening Kash meditated early, as he was eager to see the Crucified Lord again. The Revelation of the Resurrection had been an awesome experience beyond anything he had witnessed so far. It was the first time he had seen tears in the eyes of the Divine Messengers, an extremely rare phenomenon in the Heavens. There was an inner desire to just see the Savior again for reasons best known to Kash, and he was not asked why.
As he sat in meditation the Divine Energy traveled from the root of the Tree of Life at the sacrum bone and blossomed at the Thousand Petals of the Sahasrara, flowering into the divine vision of the Tabernacle of the Almighty Creator. He opened his spiritual eyes and saw the Great Mater Sanctissima Shri Nirmala Devi. The Supreme Light shone ever so dazzlingly from behind the Eternal Throne of the Great Holy Mother as She sat in Bliss and Joy.
Kash bowed down to Her with folded hands in Namaskar and asked if She could take him to see Shri Jesus again. Shri Mataji smiled in agreement and stepped down from the Golden Throne and held out Her hands. Kash put his palms over and found himself being levitated a few inches. Both then traversed across the endless landscape of blue clouds, and into the universe..
Soon they arrived at their destination and slowed down to a halt. Shri Mataji withdrew Her hands from under Kash's outstretched arms. The levitation ended and he found himself being lowered a few inches onto the carpet of clouds.
Kash looked around and saw Lord Jesus some distance away, standing and waiting in anticipation.
Jesus then started walking forward to greet His guests. Kash bowed in Namaskar and told Him," Happy Good Friday."
Shri Jesus took his hands, shook them, hugged him and said," Son, I am so glad that you came here today."
Shri Mataji then also wished Shri Jesus on this auspicious day, and He bowed down to Her in Namaskar. They then walked back to His place and sat down. After a while they decided to meditate. They raised their Kundalinis collectively, put themselves in bandhan, began meditation and lapsed into Divine Bliss.
When they finished Kash bowed and wished Shri Jesus a Happy Good Friday again, before leaving with Shri Mataji.
Upon reaching the Land of Eternal Light he asked Her permission to leave, and was granted. Kash then bowed down, closed his spiritual eyes, and drifted down through the clouds of heaven back to this suicidal world of Solar Temples and Heaven's Gates.
"In the ancient book He (Jesus) was called as Mahavishnu, means the greater form of Vishnu ... will be the Adhara, means the Support of the Universe. See how from Mooladhara He becomes Adhara. This was all done at the heavenly stage — Vaikuntha stage. You can say then He was given birth by the Holy Ghost who was The Mother of Christ on this Earth, who was nobody but was the Incarnation of Mahalakshmi...
He had to die and whatever died in Him was the little Earth element and other elements. And what came out of Him was Pure Spirit, was Pure Spirit. That was resurrected, the Pure Spirit, the pure Brahmatattwa which had formed the body of Christ. And this happening came. Christ had done what was predicted of Him. That He's a Savior because He passed through the Gate to take people from this bodily existence — means the one that depends on the elements — to that existence which is Spirit.
So the Resurrection is where you become. From your attention you jump into the Attention of the Spirit when you feel your attention, when you become the Spirit. That is the happening which has happened to you also. But He became pure Spirit, pure Brahmatatwa, when He was Resurrected. And the Resurrection is a happening of the Divine Power which came from Mooladhara Chakra as just Earth element started growing. It took its birth from there, came up to Agnya Chakra. There Christ was created to pass through all the elements, ultimately to enter the Sahasrara and become a complete Brahmatatwa.
And this was a very difficult thing, was very experimental, and the experiment was quite a dangerous one. It could have failed because He had in Him that human element, the body element, which suffers. So He had to suffer that body element and to get over it, to get out of it. And to get out of it He had to have a tremendous courage. It was such a difficult operation. Without Him nobody could have achieved. He knew it was predestined, but it was one of the most difficult things to happen...
He remained there within all of you to be awakened, and when the Kundalini takes your attention through that point there you also become the Spirit. That's why He said," I am the Gate. I am the Door. "He didn't say," I am the Destination"; that you have to achieve Him. But He has created this space (Agnya Chakra) for you. You can become spiritually awakened. You can become your Spirit."
"His life was so charming and so beautiful. Like a shooting star He came on this Earth, but He left such a remarkable impression on people. His crucifixion was a part of the game because He had to make the way in the Agnya Chakra. To cross the Agnya Chakra, He was crucified.
But His Message is not crucifixion. People wear the cross and I feel very hurt about it. He crucified Himself. But that's not the Message. That's not [what] you should celebrate, that He crucified. There are people who celebrate it. You have to celebrate His Resurrection; Resurrection because human beings are to be resurrected.
In Sahaja Yoga nobody's crucified and is resurrected because of one crucifixion of Christ. That was enough. That was sufficient. You can't carry the cross on your shoulder. Don't have to. He has carried for you. He's done everything for you. He said also that He died for all the sinners — is a fact. If He had not done that, it would have been difficult to open your Agnyas because two problems, I told you, this conditioning and ego. His crucifixion has helped the loosening of these two horrible capacities of human beings.
His life is to be understood in a very, very deep sense, but if you are like a journalist, you're going to say, 'Why did He crucify Himself? If He was God, why did He get crucified?' Now the question is why He got crucified is how to tell these journalists who don't know anything about Chakras.
Because it was the era or the time of tapasya, of sacrifice and so then all these three persons, Buddha, Mahavira and Christ, went into complete renunciation. They lead a life of a great tapasya. They did it for us, not for themselves. They did not need it. They didn't want it, but they had to do it to cleanse us, to give us a proper maryadas, as they call it, this Ekadesha Rudras, you see, to be cleared out.
And they have sacrificed their lives. They have sacrificed all the pleasures of life. For them, it was not a sacrifice. It is just a kind of a life they wanted to have. For such people, there's no question of sacrifice, but is a question of doing something that would help to open the Chakras...
Without them we could not have worked out Sahaja Yoga. It was essential for these people to cleanse for us these three Chakras, part of the one Chakra of Christ. All this they have worked out and that's why today Sahaja Yoga is so beautifully created, so beautifully spreading, is working out. We have to thank them, very much.
} Of course, all other Incarnations also have helped you can see; Vishuddhi, then also Heart, and all these, right Heart, left Heart. All these angels, as they are called in the Bible, have helped us to cross over. All these Incarnations are responsible in our evolutionary process to create these ladders for us to move.
So, ultimately, you reach the state of Tapa on the sixth centre and then in the state of Truth, Sat. Then the Truth comes to you through Sahaja Yoga in the brain, in the limbic area, when the Kundalini enters. She puts Light there. She creates enlightened personalities and then She joins this All-Pervading Power of Divine Love. And with this Divine Love, you are completely changed and transformed."
Christ: Conditioning & Ego, Christmas Puja, India — Dec. 24, 1995
" "Christ was born on this Earth as a human being. He came on this Earth and the task that was before Him was to enlighten human awareness with the sense of understanding that we can see its actualization within the awareness of human beings that they are not this body, but they are the Spirit. The Message of Christ was His Resurrection, that is, you are the Spirit and not your body and He showed by His Resurrection how He ascended into the Realm of Spirit...
And He came on this Earth in a body like a human being. He wanted to show another thing: that the Spirit has nothing to do with money, has nothing to do with Power. It is All-Powerful, All-Pervading...
He has promised that you have actually to be 'born again.' Christ is to be born within you. I do not know what Christians understand out of this? How do you become 'born again'? Not by going through the ritual of baptism. Somebody coming from the theological college cannot make you a Christian...
The main thing that one has to understand is that the time has come for you to get all that is promised in the scriptures, not only in the Bible but all the scriptures of the world. The time has come today that you have to become a Christian, a Brahmin, a Pir, through your Kundalini awakening only. There is no other way. And that your Last Judgment is also now."
The Message Of Christ, Caxton Hall, London, U.K. — Dec. 10, 1979
"And His body was not made out of Mother Earth in the sense that He never had a body that was perishable. It was Aumkara. So when He died He ascended. This is the fact — He ascended ... because He was a person made of Aumkara. Now as He is the Son of Radha Ji you can see the relationship between Him and the other Deities very easily. About Mahavishnu it is written in the Devi Bhagavat. But who reads Devi Bhagavat? Nobody has the time to read these books. Mostly what trash things they read there you cannot find explanation of all these Incarnations who have come on this Earth.
So to understand Jesus Christ you have to read Devi Bhagavat. But if you say this to the Christians they would not like to listen to you because for them Bible is the last word. How can it be because Christ's life is depicted there only for four years? He must have reference in other books also and we have to open our eyes to these books and see for ourselves what is the Truth. Because if we want to have an organized religion you have to say, "This is the thing, there is nothing else" because if there is anything else then your religions falls apart.
But it is not true because Christ has been described very clearly in the Devi Bhagavat. And we can prove it in the Kundalini; that when the Kundalini rises and stops here — at the Agnya, here — you have to say Lord's Prayer, otherwise it would not open. To awaken Jesus Christ, if you do not awaken Him, it would not open. You have to take His name otherwise it would not open proves it was Christ who was ruling. Or even if you take the name of Mahavishnu it opens.
So Mahavishnu and Jesus Christ are the same. And so you must see the proof of it. And just because you want to believe Christ is your own, and discard everybody else as heathens, you are sadly mistaken. Absolutely you are sadly mistaken."

"A recent Newsweek magazine (28 November 1994) ran as its cover story, 'The Search for the Sacred: America's Quest for Spiritual Meaning.' This was a particularly revealing article not just because it acknowledged and discussed the significant increase in interest in spirituality, but because the observations demonstrated the dominance of the New Age Movement (NAM), especially the infiltration through the compromising mainline church. Consider some of the following quotes: "In a pluralistic society, 'one institution feels a little spiritually claustrophobic,'" writes a religion professor at Rutgers University. He says he used to deride this new, cafeteria approach to faith calling, it a "pick and choose religion" that was "frivolous and narcissistic," but now," he believes that a person who has synthesized different traditions can find a path that may be spiritually profound as traditional religions or even more spiritually profound" (p. 55).
In a related article, Kenneth L Woodward writes," A typical expression of this search is the eclectic Quest program at Grace Episcopal Cathedral in San Francisco. Participants are encouraged to experiment with four spiritual paths to the sacred" (p. 61). Two of those paths are the mystical and the integration of Eastern and Western spiritual disciplines.
Woodward, Newsweek's religion writer astutely observed," No doubt much of this reconfiguring of the sacred is inspired by a new religious pluralism in America which makes any one spiritual path seem inherently parochial. In this environment, many searching Americans flit from one tradition to the next the search for the sacred turned sharply inward, a private quest. The goal over the last 40 years, has been variously described as 'peace of mind, higher consciousness, personal transformation'" (pp. 61-62).
Why are so many people with traditional Christian backgrounds, participating in New Age spirituality? There are many possible reasons: not truly being born-again, a lack of discipleship and thus discernment, anemic churches or weak Christian experiences to name a few."
Craig Branch, Does the Bible Teach Reincarnation?
"From the beginning, Christian faith in the resurrection has met with incomprehension and opposition. "On no point does the Christian faith encounter more opposition than on the resurrection of the body." It is very commonly accepted that the life of the human body continues in a spiritual fashion after death. But how can we believe that this body, so clearly mortal, could rise to everlasting life?"
(548. Cf. Acts 17:32, 1 Cor 15:12-13; 549. St. Augustine, En. in Ps. 88, 5, PL 37, 1134.)"
J. Cardinal Ratzinger, Catechism of the Catholic Church
"The Gospel of Thomas relates that when the disciples asked Jesus where they should go, he said only, 'There is light within a man of light, and it lights up the whole world. If he does not shine, he is in darkness.' Far from legitimizing any instruction, both sayings direct one instead to oneself — to one's inner capacity to finds one's own direction, to the 'light within.' "
Elaine Pagels, The Gnostic Gospels
Behold! the angels said:
"O Mary! Allah giveth thee glad tidings of a Word from Him:
His name will be Christ Jesus.
The son of Mary, held in high honour in this world and the Hereafter,
And of (the company of) those nearest to Allah."....
Behold! Allah said: "O Jesus! I will take thee and raise thee to Myself
And clear thee (of the falsehoods) of those who blaspheme;
I will make those who follow thee,
Superior to those who reject faith, to the Day of Resurrection:
Then shall ye all return unto Me and I will judge between you,
Of the matters wherein you dispute ...
The Truth (comes) from thy Lord alone; So be not of those who doubt. 399
surah 3:45-60 Ali Imran (The Family of Imran)
"399. The truth does not necessarily come from priests, or from the superstitions of whole peoples. It comes from Allah, and where there is direct revelation, there is no room for doubt."
Abdullah Yusuf Ali, The Holy Qur'an
"Second Coming, also Parousia, return of Jesus Christ in visible form to earth. On the basis of certain sayings of Jesus, the early church expected that within a comparatively short period after the ascension he would come again and usher in the full glory of the messianic age (see Matthew 24:29-31; Mark 13:24-27; Luke 21:25-28). As the years passed, many leaders of the church came to feel that the true meaning of Jesus' words and realization of his promises were to be found in the spiritual life rather than in an earthly kingdom.
In later times the doctrine of Christ's return has been held in one of two forms: the first, that it will be premillennial, that is, before the age of the great prosperity and triumph of the church; or the second, that it will be postmillennial — after this age and immediately before the general judgment."
