Enlighten! Mother Kundalini, Enlighten!


The female change will be very difficult;
City and province will gain by the change:
The heart will count most, prudence well established, chasing out cunning,
Sea, land, people will change their whole state. 

Century 4:21

The change caused by the powerful presence of the female will be very difficult:
But the whole world will gain by the change.
The heart will be the most important feature of this transformation, but also prudence will be as much as an established aspect of this new life, chasing out cunning created by man.
The entire world, in all aspects, will be altered in the most fundamental way.

The female change will be very difficult;

Manuela Dunn and Peter Lorie have in their detailed explanation again cluttered the landscape and marred its beauty — politics, science, technology, invention, innovation, arts, birth, child-care, education, medicine, the role of elders and so forth. This is probably not the future role that Nostradamus foresaw for women in his tranquil mind.


"The children of the 21st century will inherit a world in many ways beguiling. For everyone but the poorest, it beckons as a magical empire of Mammon, a madcap consumer's paradise of immediate gratification and express delivery, of hot images and cool gadgets, of designer jeans and designer genes.

It is a dream world where chemists can turn a sow's ear into a silk purse, where bioengineers can put a bit of sheep into a wolf — or vice verse — and where the life-styles of the rich and famous are beamed by satellite to every upwardly mobile village on the planet. Thanks to science and technology — not to mention advertising and marketing — more people are consuming a more amazing array of worldly goods than at any time in history ...

Asia has many large countries — it accounts for more than 50% of the globes' population — and as prosperity swells through the region, so do the demands of Asians for the good life. A refrigerator becomes a must, an automobile no longer an impossible dream. But the fruits of prosperity, especially when reaped in vast numbers, can be disastrous for the environment, both locally and for the earth as a whole. A rain forest leveled on Borneo can no longer absorb carbon dioxide belched out of the U.S. or Europe. An explosion of car-buying in China, India and Southeast Asia will accelerate the greenhouse effect ... "Asia," reports the Asian Development Bank in Manila, "is the world's most polluted and environmentally degraded region."

TIME: Our Precious Planet
 (Special Issue November 1997)

The Message of the Holy Sprit that Homo sapiens have to transform themselves into higher beings will be difficult to be accepted and imbibed by the aggressive, macho, ego-oriented male-dominated societies even as they stand on the brink of spiritual annihilation. The global race and greed for material wealth has reached satanic proportions with little regard for existing resources, environment or humans — everything is a commodity. 

China, India and the entire Pacific Rim countries are industrializing at a furious pace and soon will be as greedy as the Americans in consumption and wealth accumulation, given that fact that "the average North American consumes fives times more than a Mexican, 10 times more than a Chinese, and 30 times more than a person in India." (The Globe and Mail, Tuesday, November 25, 1997).) Mother Earth will be raped and pillaged on a scale too frightening to calculate. 

Buccaneering billionaires are towering icons of insatiable greed and billions daily dream of making millions. Human relationships are being stripped of all warmth, love and compassion as wars, drugs, crimes, violence, divorces, unwed mothers, poverty, racism, media, immorality, untruth, religions, corruption, politics, litigation, homelessness and hopelessness take their daily toll. Humans are being dehumanized and devoured by the very societies they have built for themselves. 

Any community that does not put the spirit of humans first is doomed to fail. This includes all Eastern societies now seduced into embracing the virtues of materialism with a vulgar display of wantonness and abandon, forgetting and relinquishing their ancient spiritual roots that had nourished their inner Self and kept the fabric of humanity intact.


Were I possessed of the least knowledge, I would, when walking on the great way, fear only paths that lead astray.
The great Way is easy, yet people prefer bypaths.
The court is corrupt, the fields are overgrown with weeds, the granaries are empty;
Yet there are those dressed in fineries, with swords at their sides, filled with food and drink,
And possessed of too much wealth.
This is known as taking the lead in robbery. Far indeed is this from the Way.


Tao Te Ching 53

Modern humans are now totally engaged in mind, body and soul seeking wealth, unable to divert their attention to the Spirit. The entire system is geared towards economic domination, ruthless competition, and increasing living standards. The false fears of poverty (or 'lack' of wealth) keep human minds trapped in a vicious illusion and permanent preoccupation. They are mentally shackled in a male-dominated culture of power, greed and consumerism. They will find it difficult even to listen to voices of wisdom, let alone transform. Enlightenment takes some time to be understood. Few really believe that their spirit within exists and is eternal. Without the comfort, faith, and security of this Knowledge life continues to be a one-night stand of wild abandon, devoid of decorum, direction or destiny. The only hope lies in the awakening and empowerment of women, and the reversal of patriarchal personalities.

"Audrey Hope's interview with Shri Mataji on the Reel Women series has been accepted for broadcast on the new international cable network, The Wisdom Network. The two-part series will be aired across the world.

'Reel Women' is a half hour weekly cable TV show dedicated to creating positive female role models in our media, and to life-altering perspectives that can transform our world. The show fills a needed gap in programming, and offers the perspective that the feminine qualities of love and compassion in all of us , can heal the world. Audrey Hope is an award-winning actress from New York and when she arrived in Los Angeles six years ago, she became very concerned about the media's effect in our lives. She began to produce, write, and host a series on a shoe-string budget , with the aspiration to sensitize people to view all human beings with respect and compassion. But it wasn't until Audrey had the rare privilege to interview Shri Mataji Nirmala Devi, that she understood the importance of this kind of show for this new era. "Now we can end spiritual, economical and global turmoil by connecting to The Mother energy that is innate in all of us", she says.

The Wisdom Network is a new network that focuses on self improvement, relationships, the mind, the body, spirituality and ecological issues. Wisdom TV seeks to inspire, enlighten, nurture and challenge while offering viewers new ways of viewing themselves and the world. Wisdom TV will reach a largely untapped and emerging mainstream category of potentially 65 million viewers in America and millions internationally."

"Now in the same way a Sahaja Yogi must know that the Child within him is born — the Spirit. Spirit is the Child which has been born within him. Now he has to nourish it, through the Kundalini. He has to water it. He has to look after it. He has to make it grow. Now where is the time for other nonsensical things? You have a Child in your hands. You are all mothers looking after the Child that's your Spirit. So where do you have time for all these things? What attention should be: "What I can do to make this Child happy, to make this Child grow, to make this Child completely manifest my Self?" The mother replaces herself as soon as the child becomes a mature child. So now in you The Motherhood must take over the fatherhood — motherhood towards your Self ...

Now the men, when they are dominating, they have to understand that they have to be compassionate. They have to be kind, they have to be considerate but never subservient, never subservient. This is, one should understand that you should never be subservient. Now the woman, what they have to be is to be great, large, receptive, receiving and nourishing all that ...

I think this is one of the biggest problems of the West today. The men are neither men and women are not women. I find this quality so horrid that I don't know how to deal with the mixture. You must understand this very simple thing in life that if you are a hybrid stuff, you can't have the quality of a Sahaja Yogi. If you mix it up it's a very funny thing, isn't it? So a woman must try to be a woman and a man must try to be a man. Now see, what is the situation of a man as a masculine effect on the development of consciousness? So as the manliness was expressed we have developed science. We have developed all this knowledge, all these things which are outside. Now everything is ready.

Now the Woman has to come up. I mean, I am saying in a very abstract way; don't think of woman, but you can say the Feminine. The feminine nature has to rise. Now everything is ready — it has to work out. All the Chakras are ready, now awaken the Kundalini ... Say, for example, there's one personality of masculine personality that has to come and do a certain job. Now you have done it. All right now the other personality has to do the job. Now see the situation of the Divine also ...

The whole preparation has been made for this Aquarius Age to come in to bring in the Kundalini upward and to make the whole thing work out in such a way that the left and right meet and you all become ignited — enlightened. It was a question of our being sharing the whole job in a proper understanding.

Now see how Mother Earth Herself was created. It is also a very simple thing. First, the movement of the Energy started flowing. Now this is a combined Energy, alright? Then the combined Energy went round and round and round like that, and when it consolidated there was this Big Bang. When Big Bang took place — now this is manly work, I would say in a way, manly style because still The Mother Earth is not produced. So then these little fragments again went round and round. With the momentum they became roundish. Out of them Mother Earth was selected for one job. On The Mother Earth out of the water came the life — the carbon came in. Everybody helped there and a human being was created. Then the men went round to improve their societies and whatever they have done to it, whatever was possible with their ego is done — finished now. Now they have done their job ...

Now the Woman — or we can say the Kundalini which has been waiting all these years — was waiting, was resting, waiting for that Time, isn't it? So we call it the Blossom Time has now come. At that Time the Kundalini has to rise and ignite in such a way that the completion of the Whole Work takes place — it is simple. Do you understand now? ...

So the Revolution has to take place and the Revolution is only possible when we understand that what part is left out now to be done. Are you getting Me all right? So that part is now Realization, our awareness of the Kundalini. For that your feminine qualities are going to help you, not your masculine qualities. So aggressiveness must be given up by men. Also, because they are Sahaja Yogis, they have to take the feminine qualities ...

A turning point has come. Now a revolution is not a rebellion at all by any chance. It's a wrong idea people have. It's not rebellion that you hit me and I hit you; go on hitting each other. Like a pendulum you move. You see the movement of a pendulum. It's not like a boom. This thing that today you are born as a Muslim, tomorrow you are born as a Jew, then you are born as a Jew, then you are born as a Hindu, then you are born as — it's not a pendulum. It is spiral movement. So every time you achieve any evolution you are at a higher level than before. So the movement is spiral — see My point?

Now to achieve the higher position in our whole being what should we do? Is to understand that from this point to that point we have to rise. We have to rise in a way that it is not in a pendulum way, but in a spiral way. And to move spirally you have to use another kind of force. Whatever you have used so far has to be endowed with another kind of force and that's the feminine qualities of women.

But where are the feminine woman? They dress up like women, they will try to be feminine and all that. That's not the way. From inside, from the heart. A feminine heart Christ showed that in His life — He forgave. Only a woman can forgive. Man cannot because he is aggressive. How can he forgive? He forgave to such an extent to show that He is now giving a turn to the spiral, and now a feminine quality has to be developed among human beings. But that doesn't mean that you start walking like women or developing waistlines because that's another stupidity. But to be motherly; not to be fatherly but to be motherly. That kindness, that gentleness should be in your behavior towards each other.

Of course this force also corrects, sometimes also gets angry also. Mother also has to get angry sometimes, specially with people who never get alright with their behaviour, She has to be shouting, punishing, and sometimes She also destroys! It's alright. But that is sometimes, not all the time. So just now one has to accept that to be like The Mother Earth they have to be forbearing — Dhara. She is the sustenance of everything. She takes everything, the vibrations are sucked in. And now for the first time after Realization, you can give Her back what you have got it from Her. You can give vibrations to Her trees that are created, you can make them beautiful. You can transform a flower into a more beautiful flower. Now whatever you have to give what you have got from The Mother Earth you can give because your Mother Earth is awakened within you now. So you return Her back everything that you got from Her and give it to others. Generosity, the greatness of heart, nobility, forgiveness, love, affection, bearing everything for love. And for The Mother, to save her child, she'll starve herself, she'll do everything to save her child — complete dedication she has for her child. That's a real mother — I mean the kind of mothers you see these days, neither they are mothers nor women. But what I am saying, that's the real image of a mother, and you have an image before you."

"Brothers and Sisters of the World,

Shri Mataji Nirmala Devi

Shri (Dr.) Shri Mataji Nirmala Devi

 

 

 

It is a great honour for me to talk about global problems of women in front of this distinguished assembly. First of all I would like to offer my profound gratitude to the government and the people of our host country, the People's Republic of China. I have had the privilege of visiting China on two previous occasions and I am a great admirer of the wisdom and culture of this great nation that I have visited.

This is, beyond my imagination, the most glorious time in the history of the world that at this time we are so much aware of the problems of women. Women as a whole have definitely suffered over the ages because we have not realised what their importance is and what their proper role is in human society. Society itself, which is her creation, tries to control or put down the womanhood. In the East, we can say, that due to fundamentalist influence women have been under great pressure and their morality is based on fear rather than freedom. In the West they have fought for their freedom, but what they have attained is spurious freedom. The women in the West have the freedom to abandon all social and moral values. Thus in the East, we can say, that most of the women are timid, oppressed and cannot express themselves, while in the West we find most of the women are reduced to a sex symbol. They are keen to expose their body; their anxiety is to appear in fashion advertisement s and very cheap popularity. Most of them accepted this position because otherwise they could not have survived in that chaotic world of the West. What most of the women in the East would regard as very humiliating and degrading is regarded as something very glorifying in the West. I have seen both the worlds very deeply and I feel that unless and until you bring a new culture by which women from the East and women from the West can both rise in their own esteem and express themselves in such a way that they create high moral standards for their society, women neither in the East nor in the West will rise to their full stature of feminine speciality. The speciality is that if women are respected for their womanhood, understanding what they are capable of and how they can empower themselves with all the education needed, all the security will be provided to them and they will provide security to the society.

All the fundamentalists who talk of religion expect women to be absolutely moral and the men can do whatever they like. I feel we have to educate men more than women. I must admit it is not difficult to collect money for poor women in the developing countries and help them to get out of their poverty, but unfortunately, my knowledge is that the money we are collecting may not reach the poor women but may end up into the pockets of the corrupt ministers, bureaucrats and other people in charge.

I do not want to criticize any UN organization because I know they are very honest in their purpose, but they must be made aware of what is happening under the table. We in India have two very big states called as Uttar Pradesh and Bihar which are very much helped by UNICEF as well as the World Health Organization. UNICEF started a project called Angan, meaning courtyard, where the children were to be educated and brought up in a proper shape. This project is not at all working for the children but all the money goes into the pockets of all the corrupt people who are in charge of that project and the children do not get even two percent of what is being sent for them. Same with the World Health Organization, which is sending medicines and equipment to India. These medicines are sold in the market and are completely used by the recipients for their own gains. The same happens to WHO equipment. So the poor people never get any benefit and they remain all the time helpless.

One has to have a very good network of people, specially women, who are involved and who are honest, compassionate and who would like to make the best out of this money, helping the women to achieve social equality. The main work of womanhood is to create a good society.

Immorality and corruption are the two horrible monsters which are eating up our society. I would blame The Mothers of these immoral and corrupt persons because they failed in their duty as mothers in their childhood. The loving training of The Mother is the first and most effective influence in shaping the children into beautiful citizens. Mothers who have never tried to guide with great concern and love, or the wives or the daughters who are falling into the fear of the men or of the destructive culture, have not done their duty as integral members of the family to strengthen the moral fibre of the men. It is important also to see how children are treated in these two cultures of East and West. What we see in the East is that children would listen to their mothers if they are not under fundamentalist culture. This culture relegates women to the level of an inferior human being, fit to be dominated by men and children. In the West also the same thing happens. Children don't respect their mothers neither do they listen to them. I feel this is because, generally, the Western women spend more time looking after their body and looks than on looking after and loving their children. The nexus between The Mother and children weakens and breaks. It is for this reason that many children become street urchins. Fortunately there are still many families in the East and some in the West who deeply defy the corrupting trends of today and look after their children and bring them up properly.

But still I must say that the children in the East are not that much ruined as they are in the West. The reason, also, is that in the East there are many people who have not taken to fundamentalist culture or to the Western culture and have a very good society and produce children who are exceptionally good although this number may not be very great. But whatever culture they have inherited, since long, traditionally, is very much ingrained in them and to them the moral value system is the highest, more than money or power.

The West is now full of problems. Though they have money, they don't have peace within and without. The truth is that women are the potential power of every civilization and every country. It is evident that women are the creators and the preservers of the entire humankind. This is the role that the almighty God has assigned to them. Seeds cannot create anything by themselves. It is The Mother Earth which provides the flowers and the fruits and other bounties. Similarly, it is the woman who creates the child, who nurtures the baby and eventually brings up the citizen of tomorrow. Women must therefore rank with Mother Earth as the edifice of the entire humanity. Unfortunately, men have utilized muscle power to gain a dominating position over women. They have not recognized that women are complementary and equal but not similar partners in human endeavors. A society that does recognize this fundamental truth and does not given to women their rightful role is not a civilized society.

In my own country there is a saying in Sanskrit, "Yatra nayra pujyante tatra ramante devata" , which means that "Where the women are respected and respectable, there resides the Gods of our well-being". So it is for us, at this moment, to recognize the value of this great power that is given to us by our Creator. But what do we find? Whether in the East or in the West, women have not been able to give a full manifestation of their greatness. I am not suggesting at all that the only role of women in society is that of The Mother, the pro-creator and preserver of children, or that of a wife, or a sister. Women have a full right to participate as equal partners in every aspect of life; social, cultural, educational, political, economical, administrative and the rest. In order to prepare themselves for this all pervading role, they must have the right to education in all branches of knowledge. But if they are mothers, they have a great responsibility towards their children as well as their society. Men are responsible for the politics and economics of the country but women are responsible for the society. Women can also support men and they can take leading part, of course, in any position but, it is very important that they should not forget that they are women who have to manifest deep motherly concern and love. If they become manly and aggressive the balance of society cannot be maintained.

At the same time I must submit that while we ask for the rights of women we must also stress the fundamental duties of women to the human society. The women in the West, or those who are educated in the West, have gone to the other extreme when they are taking to political, economical or administrative role. To compete with men they have become much too self-willed, self-centered and ambitious. They have no more their soothing and pleasing qualities which can keep the balance. On the contrary, they become dominating, pleasure-seeking individuals. They are far more worried about their physical attractions than having a pleasing, sweet and dignified personality. They give into their baser self much faster than men, wittingly or unwittingly. All this leads to chaotic societies and children grow up into street urchins, thieves and even murderers as we read everyday in the paper. What we need is a balance between the two extremes. We need women as equal but not similar partners wit h men, but with a subtle understanding of the nature of men and how to bring them into the centre with inner balance. We need balanced women in order to have a balanced human race with peace within itself. You might say all this is excellent in thought, but how do we achieve this state of balance? How do we stem the tide of diseases, corruption, immorality and immaturity. How do we end the present state of conflict and conf usion? How do we bring about peace within every mind and heart? I very humbly submit that there is an answer to these questions. There is a new way.

Whatever I am going to tell you now is not be taken for granted. You should, of course, have your minds open like scientists and treat whatever I am stating as a hypothesis. If this hypothesis can be proved, then you have to accept it as honest persons as the absolute truth because it is for your benevolence. It is for the benevolence of your family, It is for the benevolence of your country and for the benevolence of the whole world.

I am here to tell you about the last breakthrough of our evolution. This breakthrough of our evolution in our awareness has to happen in these modern times and has been , moreover, recorded in the writings of many seers. These are the times called as the "Decadent Times" last called by the great saint Vyasa who has written the Gita, and it is the decadence of humanity that we see around in every way possible.

Now I would like to tell the secret knowledge of our inner being which was known in India thousands of years back. For our evolution and spiritual ascent there is a residual power within us which is located in the triangular bone at the base of our spine. This residual power is known as Kundalini. Though the knowledge of this power was available thousands of years back in India, the awakening of the Kundalini was done, traditionally, on an individual basis only. One guru would given awakening to one disciple. As a result of that awakening, what happens is that you achieve your self-realisation, your self-hood. Secondly, when this power is awakened, it rises and passes through six subtle energy centres in your body, nourishing them and integrating them. Ultimately, this power breaks through the fontanel bone area called as the Talu or the Brahmarandra and connects you to the all-pervading power of Divine love, which is described in the bible also as the "cool breeze of the Holy Ghost" also in the Koran as "Ruh" and also in the Indian scriptures as "Paramchaitanya". Patanjali has called it as "Ritambhara Pragya". Whatever the name, this is a power which is all-pervading, which does all the subtle works of living process, of evolutionary process. The existence of this all-pervading energy is not felt before realisation but after self-realisation you can feel it on your finger tips or at the centre of your palm or above the fontanel bone area.

Moreover, this process has to be spontaneous, "Sahaja". "Saha" means "with" and "ja" means "born". That means the right to get this union with the all-pervading power of Divine love is the birth right of every human being. Our mental energies are limited. Our limited mental energy, which is linear in movement and has not sustenance of reality, reaches a point and stops. From there it boomerangs and all that mental, linear movement comes back to us as a punishment sometimes. So now we need more energy, higher energy, deeper energy and for that this happening has to take place.

I must say that in the West, I have met many people who are true seekers of Truth and are fed up of artificiality of the Western life. Also they didn't know what they were seeking sometimes and they have made lots of mistakes. They have gone to false gurus who have taken lots of money and the people have become bankrupts and mentally and physically handicapped. The one thing you must note is that the awakening of the Kundalini and thus achieving self-realisation is a living process of evolution for which we cannot pay anything. It is like putting a seed in The Mother Earth. It sprouts because Mother Earth has the power to sprout it and the seed has an in-built germinating quality within it. In the same way we have this germinating power in the triangular bone which Greeks called as Sacrum. Actually in some people you can see this triangular bone pulsating and the Kundalini very slowly rising, but where there are no obstructions and if the person is a balance being, the Kundalini rises form the Sacrum just like a jet and passes through the fontanel bone area to become one with the all-pervading power. This Kundalini is the spiritual mother of every individual and She knows or has recorded all the past aspirations of Her child. She is anxious to give second birth to Her child and during Her ascent, She nourishes six energy centres. When a person is not connected to the all pervading power, he is like an instrument which is not connected to the mains and has no identity, has no meaning, has no purpose. As soon as it is connected, all that is built in inside this instrument starts working and manifesting itself. When this Kundalini rises it connects you to the all pervading power, which is vital and which is an ocean of knowledge as well as an ocean of bliss. After the awakening of Kundalini, you experience many coincidences which are miraculous and extremely blissful. Above all Kundalini is the ocean of forgiveness. So what ever mistakes you have committed in the past are forgiven and instead you get your self-realisation as a blessing.

The consequences of the awakening of the Kundalini and thereby the attainment of self-realisation are numerous. First and foremost, such a person is constantly in contact with or is in fact a part of the all pervading Divine power. He seeks the truth by using his new awareness. And truth is one, all self-realised persons see this same truth. Thus conflicts are avoided. Purely mental activity without self-realisation, leads to conflicting ideas and even wars. All this is avoided after self-realisation. Now, let us see how many other things happen in a person who gets realisation. Firstly you start feeling the cool breeze of the Holy Ghost on your fingertips, which represent the subtle energy centres. Thus you know the truth on your finger tips. You transcend all the limitations of race, religion and other ideas and you go beyond your mind to see and feel the reality and understand it. The next thing that happens is that you become thoughtlessly aware. We live in the future and the past through our thoughts. They come to us from these two areas of time but we cannot be in the present. While these thoughts are rising and falling we are jumping on the cusp of these thoughts. But when Kundalini rises She elongates these thoughts and thereby creates some space in-between which is the present, which is the reality. So the past is over and the future doesn't exist. At that time you have no thoughts. You reach a new state as you become thoughtlessly aware about which Jung has written clearly. At this moment whatsoever happens is recorded in your memory well and you enjoy every moment of this in reality. When you become thoughtlessly aware then you become completely peaceful within yourself.

A person who has achieved this peace also emits peace and creates a peaceful atmosphere around himself. This peace is very important. Unless and until we have this peace we will never truly understand whatever our ideas are, whether universal or just limited. You can feel your own seven centres on your fingertips. Also you can feel the centres of others because you develop a new level of awareness which is called as collective consciousness. When such new awareness is established into you, you start feeling also the centres of others. I must tell you that these centres are responsible for our physical, mental, emotional and spiritual well being and when they are affected or they are in jeopardy, people suffer from one disease or another. As a result of the awakening of the Kundalini and the nourishment of these centres, an important development would be that you will feel an inner balance and you will enjoy good health. Many diseases, even some incurable ones, have been cured by the awakening of the Kundalini. Even the data base of the inherited genes may be restructured after sel f-realisation through the awakening of the Kundalini. As a result, a person who might have inherited genes indicating criminal tendency might become a good man.

Our attention also becomes very pure. In the light of the spirit we can see things much more clearly than when we were blind. For example, a person who goes with his blind eyes and feels an elephant and then another comes in and a third comes in, all of them have different ideas about the elephant, depending on whichever part of the elephant they have touched. But if they open their eyes then they can all see the same thing, the reality and there will be no quarrel and fights.

A self-realised person can feel the absolute knowledge on the fingertips. Supposing someone doesn't believe in God. A self-realised person can suggest to the non-believer that he should ask the question: "Is there God?" The questioner will get, you will find, a very nice cool breeze coming into his being. He may not believe in God but there is God. Unfortunately, so many of those who believe in God are also absurd, hypocritical, cruel, weird and so immoral that people have lost faith in God, But while those who represent God may be wrong, God himself exists and his power also exists which we call as the all-pervading power of Divine love. This is the power of love and compassion and not of aggression and destruction when it is imbibed in a yogi or in a self-realised person, it works in a very different way like an angel. Such people can cure others and cure themselves. Even mental cases have been cured. Not only that. Even those who have been to wrong gurus in their search of truth have achieved their spiritual stability after leaving false gurus and coming to the path of self-realisation.

In the next stage, you become thoughtlessly aware, when your Kundalini is stabilised and you know undoubtedly that you have achieved your self-realisation, that you have attained all the powers that can be utilised. You become very powerful because you can raise the Kundalini of others. You become very active and you don't feel tired easily. For example, I am seventy three years of age and I am traveling about every third day, but I am quite alright. This energy flows into you and fills you up with vitality. You become extremely dynamic and at the same time extremely compassionate, kind and mild. You feel that you are protected and thus you are confident but not egotistical. Your whole personality changes. This is the kind of global transformation which is taking place with such a speed all over that I, myself, am surprised at how it is working out so fast.

Actually, this knowledge existed a long time back but my contribution, if there is any, is that we can now achieve en-masse realisation. Thousands can achieve mass realisation. It is a gift of this time where it was predicted that such global transformation will take place. In as many as 65 countries, thousands of people have attained their self-realisation through Sahaja Yoga.

The power of Kundalini is the pure desire of attaining your selfhood. If someone doesn't want to have it, you cannot force him because the Divine respects the freedom of that person. If he wants to go to heaven, he can go there, or if he wants to go to hell, he can go to hell. Self-realisation can be attained easily if the people have a sincere and pure desire to get their self-realisation. But if they stick to some of their ideas, which are fixed, the Kundalini won't rise. Also it cannot work for idiots or for immature people. It works for people who are wise, who are more in the centre, and it works very fast. I was amazed to see that it has worked even on people who were drug addicts , who were alcoholics and who were very immoral. But they all had an intense and pure desire to secure self-improvement, self-realisation. So many of such people achieved their goal of self-realisation. Overnight, they gave up their drugs, their alcoholism . Thus you become very powerful and at the same time you understand that yo u are now glorified and you start behaving in a very dignified and a very sensible manner. This is how a new culture is born and this new culture takes you , in a way, into a new style of life where you become innately, I say innately, righteous. Nobody has to tell you: "Don't do this" and "Don't do that". It is all achieved through your enlightened attention. This enlightened attention is also full of power. Wherever you put your attention it works, it creates peace, it creates harmony and also it creates a new dimension of collective consciousness.

So to blame your genes for your mistakes is not going to work out anymore because these genes can be changed in their database and can be brought to the level of a very righteous, angelic personality. The ego and the conditioning of a person gets dissolved by the ascent of the Kundalini and he becomes really a free bird. Absolute freedom is achieved in reality and his behavior changes tremendously with great faith in himself. He becomes a witness of the whole drama of life. When you are in the water you are afraid of getting drowned, but supposing you get into a boat, you can watch the same waters with enjoyment. But if you learn how to jump in the water and save others then it is even a higher situation and so we have a higher awareness which we call as doubtless awareness. Above all, we fall into the ocean of joy. Joy is absolute. It doesn't have duality. It is not like happiness and unhappiness. It is a singular thing and once you jump into it you learn easily how to enjoy everything, whether it is beautiful or ridiculous. In one case you see the beauty; in the other you see the humour as to how people are ridiculous. The remarkable thing is that Sahaja Yogis have become great musicians, great writers, great speakers, great administrators. In every way they have rise very high, specially in their attitude toward others. They respect everyone and they know what is wrong with other people so that they can approach them carefully, gently to see that thi s person who has these problems can be easily evolved and become a self-realised soul. It is like one candle lighting another candle. This work is going on all over the world and there is great hope that it will also start in China. Before this, somehow, I could not start my work but the Divine coincidence has given a chance to me by this conference to talk to Chinese people, who I find very wise and sensitive, about the great treasure of spirituality. This is not a coincidence. It was inevitable and has been brought about by this all-pervading power. In your life also you will notice lots of coincidences but you will not know how to connect them to something that is Divine unless and until you get connected to the Divine power.

Confucius has taught the humanity how we can improve our relations with other human beings. But Lao Tse in China has very beautifully described Tao, meaning the Kundalini. And I have had a voyage through the Yangtze River through which Lao Tse had gone many times. I know he was trying to show that this river which is the Kundalini, is flowing towards the sea and one should not be tempted by the nature that is around. The nature around the Yangtze River is very, very beautiful, no doubt, but one has to go through the river. Also there are lots of currents which flow and can be quite dangerous and we need a good navigator who should take his ship across to the point where it is nearer the sea. At that stage it becomes very silent and extremely simple in its flow.

This country has been endowed with great philosophers, I would say the greatest was Lao Tse, because humanism was for the preparation of human beings for their ascent about which Lao Tse had spoken. But because of the subtle subject it was not described in such a clear-cut manner as I am talking to you. It is such a pleasure for me to talk to this august gathering here. After traveling all over the world, I realise that China is one of the best countries as far as spirituality is concerned.

May the Divine bless you all."

Admission to the patriarchal temples of power — once restricted to men only — is now open to women, provided they uphold the time-honored rules and do not rise up too high in the hierarchy.

While this is certainly an improvement over the earlier exclusion of women, the real work of dismantling the patriarchy at its foundation has barely begun. One urgent aspect that is only just now beginning to appear is for men to acquire the freedom to become more like women. This means men being able to develop not only the stereotypical "feminine" qualities that Robert Bly seems to fear — but also the deeper feminine wisdom, spirit, eros, and compassion, coupled with the vital epistemological shift that feminine consciousness naturally fosters in the human psyche.

Men today are threatened by this. What would happen to their "masculinity"? Men seem to forget their origins. They weren't just "nourished by their mother" in infancy and childhood, they were created in the womb of woman. They were born into their very existence through the vagina of woman. Men are feminine creations. Their bodies were conceived in the headwaters of menstrual flow — then sculptured and energized with the life force of the feminine. Of course this is also true of woman, but women tend to know this instinctively; their bodies are a continual, unmediated reminder. Men seem to have lost this realization, and with it much of the awe and wonder of their own existence. As I see it, all human beings — and indeed all living things and all manifest entities — are ultimately feminine creations. To me, this is cause for great joy, celebration, and wonder — because the feminine is the source of all manifest creation.

In no way does this detract from the masculine, on either the cosmic level or the relative level of men and manhood. I love living in a man's body and feeling my masculine nature, and at the deepest level I sense that the feminine and masculine nature are ontologically equal and magnificent cosmic forces. Indeed, every human being embodies both the masculine and feminine principles — engaged in a glorious dance of eternal creation that gives birth to our existence from moment to moment. If we could but live out this harmonious wonder in our everyday lives!

"Myth, Ritual, and Community. Humans need community and rituals to tell stories, pass on wisdom, celebrate life, mourn loss, and mark life changes. But with the shifting nature of families and the mobility of individuals, meaningful community life has all but disappeared for many Americans. The New Age interest in world mythology, and what Jung called the universal archetypes, is motivated by the desire to restore a sense of sacred to everyday life."

""Whereas worldly ambitions, riches, and (especially) discursive knowledge scatter the person and drain his energies, the saint "embraces Unity" or "holds fast to the One" (pao i); that is, he inspires to union with the Tao in a primordial undivided state underlying consciousness. "Embracing Unity" also means that he maintains the balance of Yin and Yang within himself and the union of his spiritual (hun) and vegetative (p'o) souls, the dispersion of which spells death ...

The spiritual soul tends to wander (in dreams), and any passion or desire can result in loss of soul. To retain and harmonize one's soul is important for physical life as well as for the unification of the whole human entity. Cleansed of every distraction, the saint creates inside himself a void that in reality is plenitude. Empty of all impurity, he is full of the original energy (yuan ch'i), which is the principle of life that in the ordinary man decays from the moment of birth on.

Because vital energy and spirituality are nor clearly distinguished, old age in itself becomes a proof of sainthood. The aged Taoist sage becomes a saint because he had been able to cultivate himself throughout a long existence; his longevity in itself was the proof of his saintliness and union with Tao. Externally he had a healthy, flourishing appearance and inside he contained an ever-flowing source of energy that manifested itself in radiance and in a powerful, beneficial influence on his surroundings, which is the charismatic efficacy (te) of the Tao.

"Bahai tolerance extends to gender, and some of the statements of Baha'uAllah and Abdul Baha seem well ahead of their time in this regard: "The world in the past has been ruled by force and man has dominated over women by reason of his more forceful and aggressive qualities both of body and mind," Abdul Baha said in Paris in 1911. "But the scales are already shifting, force is losing its weight, and mental alertness, intuition, and the spiritual qualities of love and service, in which woman is strong, are gaining ascendancy. Hence the new age will be an age less masculine and more permeated with the feminine ideal, or, to speak more exactly, will be an age in which the masculine and feminine elements of civilization will be properly balanced."

The personality of a spiritually undeveloped human being is confined to its material form of appearance, its physical body. The personality of a spiritually advanced man comprises not only the material part of his form of appearance, but also his mental, psychic and spiritual functions: his 'consciousness-body', which reaches far beyond the limits of his physical body.

In a man, who lives in his ideals or in thoughts, which go beyond the realm of individual interests and experiences, this 'consciousness-body' extends into the realm of the beautiful, of creative power, of aesthetic enjoyment and intuitive insight. To the enlightened man, however, whose consciousness embraces the universe, to him the universe becomes his 'body', while his physical body becomes a manifestation of the Universal Mind, his inner vision an expression of the highest reality, and his speech an expression of eternal truth and mantric power.

The question "What is the atman?" is a predominantly intellectual question. Even assuming that one discovers oneself to be the atman, this atman will always remain the predicate of the sentence expressing it —"I am the atman" — and thus one will never be able to bridge the gulf between the subject and the predicate. The authentic and personal question about the subject has then to take the form, not of asking what, or even who, is the atman, but what or rather who am I? It is here that neti, neti enters upon the scene: not this, not that. Nothing answers the question adequately. I am not my body (only), I am not my mind (alone), I am not (exclusively) what I am today or was yesterday or shall be tomorrow. We are not asking what the I is, but searching out who I am, who I am in the deepest recesses of my being, who I am in the last analysis, who I ultimately am as mover and lover and knower and being or whatever. It is obvious that this ultimate I can in no way be identified with a psychological ego.

It is here that the aham brahman dawns, when the real aham that is Brahman is able to reenact in and through me the true statement of the mahavakya. The I that can say this is in truth the real I and the only real and true I. Only the realized Man can say in truth aham-brahman. All the rest is secondhand knowledge and superimposed wisdom, mere hearsay. The intuition of the I as the I and the only unique I represents the highest wisdom. From this point of view to call God the Other or, even worse, the totally Other is perhaps sheer blasphemy and blatant anthropocentrism. He who worships the divinity as another, says one Upanishad, and thinks that he is one thing and God another, does not know.

Professor Raimundo Panikkar, The Vedic Experience

 


"In orthodox Christian theology, the afterlife is a heaven of the skies where there are "golden streets" and presumably riches for all. It is almost beyond comprehension how this heaven "up there" became so rooted in the religious thinking of the Western world, especially since Jesus clearly located it: "The kingdom of God cometh not with observation ... for, behold, the kingdom of God is within you" (Lk. 17-20-21 KJV).

Jesus was not talking about a place in space but a dimension of our minds, and he was saying that within every person there is limitless life, limitless substance, and open to infinite intelligence. Lack of any kind in human experience is the result of some sort of obstruction in the free flow of the creative process.

The Self-existent pierced sense openings outward; Therefore a man looks out, not in.
But a certain wise man, in search of immortality, turned his gaze inward and saw the Self within.
The foolish go after outward pleasures and walk into the snare of all-embracing death.
The wise, however, discerning immortality, do not seek the permanent among the impermanent.

The Christian Gnostics practiced a spirituality more similar to Eastern traditions than to the Western Christianity we know today. "Gnostic" is Greek for "knower" and it is "Gnosis" or "Knowledge" that they were seeking. Unlike the blind faith demanded by today's Churches, 'Gnosis' meant direct, mystical experience of the divine, which was to be found by individual spiritual evolution to Self-Realisation, and not within the confines of intellectual dogma. The experience of Gnosis was trans-rational and non-intellectual.

From the Nag Hammadi Library, the Book of Thomas, Christ tells us "For whoever does not know self, does not know anything, but whoever knows self, already has acquired knowledge about the depth of the universe". Compare this with a tract from the Upanishads, the Indian metaphysical treatise on Self Realisation: "It is not by argument that the self is known... Distinguish the self from the body and mind. The self, the atman, the highest refuge of all, pervades the Universe and dwells in the hearts of all. Those who are instructed in the self and who practice constant meditation attain that changeless and self effulgent atman ( spirit/ self). Do Thou Likewise, for bliss eternal lies before you..."

In another gnostic text, the Secret Gospel of Thomas, Christ promises us spiritual fulfilment "I shall give you what no eye has seen, what no ear has heard, what no hand has touched and what has never arisen in the human mind." This description is not unlike the Upanishadic experience "the Self is devoid of birth and death, it neither grows old nor decays and the accidents of life do not affect it. The Self transcends space and time; what is great is not too great for it to comprehend and what is small is not too small to escape its attention. It is the Self of All".

Just as Christ warned us against sin and encourages moral perfection in the pursuit of spiritual fulfilment, so too do the Eastern texts "No intellectual acumen can help one realise it, it can be realised only by those who surrender to it and who make themselves worthy by grace, by desisting from all that is sinful, who engage in the practice of perfection by constant meditation"( Upanishads).

The most ancient Eastern spiritual texts, the Vedas,of India, tell us that the process of spiritual awakening by which one attains truth -awareness is called 'Self-Realisation'. The Self Realised person lives in direct experience of reality—this is called "Jnana" ( a traditional sanskrit word meaning 'knowledge' or 'Gnosis'). Such a person is called a "Jnani" ('knower ' or 'gnostic' ) or "dwijaha" ('twice born'; first from a human mother to the earthly plane then secondly as a child of the Goddess, or Divine Mother, who gives the seeker their second, spiritual birth, Self Realisation, into the plane of mystic awareness- gnosis! ). The traditional Indian texts extol the 'Divine Mother' as the Cosmic Matriarch, bestower of the highest treasure of Self Realisation upon Her deserving children. Many Indian mystic traditions say this same goddess is represented within the human being as the divine feminine power called Kundalini.

What of Western tradition? In the Secret Book of John Christ explains that human redemption before the Heavenly Father occurs by the mediation of a Divine Feminine principle, which he calls the Earthly Mother. It is the Earthly Mother who removes the sins of the children that they can become worthy of their divine heritage; "when all sins and all uncleanesses are gone from your body, your blood shall become as pure as our Earthly Mother's blood and as pure as the river's foam sporting in the sunlight. And your breath shall become as pure as the breath of odorous flowers; your flesh as pure as the flesh of fresh fruits reddening upon the leaves of trees; the light of your eye as clear and bright as the brightness of the sun shining upon the blue sky. And now shall all the angels of the Earthly Mother serve you and your breath, your blood, your flesh shall be one with the breath, the blood and the flesh of the Earthly Mother, that your spirit also become one with the Spirit of your Heavenly Father. For truly no-one can reach the Heavenly Father unless through the Heavenly Mother. Even as the newborn babe cannot understand the teaching of his father until his mother has suckled him, bathed him, nursed him, put him to sleep and nurtured him". The Earthly Mother is a divine mediator through which the seekers, the Sons of Man, are raised to the Heavenly Father. Another part of the same text says "Honour your Earthly Mother and keep her laws that your days may be long on this earth and honour your Heavenly Father, that eternal life may be yours in the Heavens. For the Heavenly Father is a hundred times greater than all the fathers by seed and by blood, and greater is the Earthly Mother than all mothers by the body". The Holy Trinity, then is God the Father, God the Son (ie. Christ) and, it seems, God The Mother. The Divine Mother particularly is the means and power of spiritual evolution.

The Secret Book of John relates Christ's description of the Divine Feminine as the power of God Almighty. "She is the first power. She preceded everything, and came forth from the Father's mind as forethought of all. Her light resembles the Father's light; as the perfect power She is the image of the perfect and invisible Virgin Spirit. She is the first power, the glory, Barbello, the perfect glory among the worlds, the emerging glory, She glorified and praised the Virgin Spirit for she had come forth through the Spirit. She is the first thought, image of the Spirit. She became the universal womb, for She precedes everything, the common parent, the first humanity, the Holy Spirit". The Holy Spirit is here described as the Divine Power of God Himself. This power is maternal in its character (universal womb, She, the common parent) and all powerful as the 'first emanation of God'. More so, She is pure (Virgin) and She glorifies purity. So ancient christian tradition seems to tell us that the holy spirit is actually the Divine Mother!

One cannot overlook the Eastern parallels. God Almighty in Indian mythology is represented as Sada-Shiva. His state is eternal perfection (Sat Chit Ananda). His power is the Adi Shakti (primordial power) who is His feminine counterpart or spouse. It is She who does all things. She created the universe and the gods who attend over it (for example, the triune Shiva, Brahma, Vishnu). The Adi Shakti is The Mother of all things. She gave birth to the universe and is the feminine power of every deity and celestial being (usually represented as their spouse). The Secret Book of John parallels this "She became the universal womb, for She precedes everything, the common parent, the first humanity, the Holy Spirit, the triple male (Shiva, Brahma, Vishnu?) the triple power (Parvati, Saraswati, Lakshmi, who are spouses of the triple males-or the triple Goddess of Western mythological tradition?)". Thus the Christian mystics understood that the Holy Spirit is the Divine Feminine, the Goddess, the Universal Mother herself. The Syriac Christians worshiped the Holy Ghost as the Great Mother. Phillip suggests that Mary Herself is the Holy Spirit (for who else but God The Mother can give birth to God the Son?). Other Apocryphal Scriptures describe Mary as the focus of Temple activities. Her early life was punctuated by auspicious portents all implying her own Divinity.

Just as Mary and the Holy Ghost appear to parallel aspects of the Divine Mother described in the East, so too does Christ, the son of God reflect the Eastern principle of the Divine Child. The Divine Child in the Eastern mythological tradition is commonly worshiped as the dual child-gods Ganesha and Kartikeya. Ganesha represents the fabric of the cosmos, the primordial Aum or Logos from which the creation was constructed. Christ affirmed the same primordial nature of himself when he said "I am the first" and "I am the alpha". Ganesha is the primordial child who is the embodiment of purity and innocence. Similarly Christ venerated children and the innocence that they manifested. He even urged the apostles (and us) to cultivate our own childlike innocence " let the children come to me for the kingdom of heaven belongs to such as these" and "assuredly whoever does not receive the kingdom of god as a little child will by no means enter it"(Mark 10). Kartikeya is the same principle of innocence in dynamic action- the slayer of evil; as Christ did when he ejected the money lenders from the temple.

So, Christ seems to be telling us that the kingdom of Heaven, which is a state of God-like perfection and child-like innocence is attained by some inner phenomenon. In the Gnostic Scriptures Christ spoke directly of this as an inner transformation, self realisation. He also told us that the Holy Ghost or Divine Mother is the power by which this is accomplished, but by what mechanism?

Let's take lateral look at the Indian tradition of Kundalini of which many local saints have spoken. Shankaracharya (700AD) and Gyaneshwara (1200AD) are two well known mystic exponents of Kundalini. They both describe the actualisation of self-realisation in their classic poetry, such as the Saundarya-Lahari, Sivananda-Lahari and the Gyaneshwari (itself a commentary on the Kundalini Yoga described by Krishna in the Bhagavad Gita ). They describe a force of pure (virgin) spirituality, which lies dormant within the human being.

By constant purification and self perfection the seven vital energy centres (chakras) which govern all aspects of mind, body and soul, are prepared for the awakening of Kundalini. Once awakened by divine grace, the Kundalini passes through these centres, not unlike a string through beads, enlightening each as it passes through. Arriving at the seventh centre (Sahasrara) the seeker's awareness is united with the eternal-self-within. The experience is transrational, non causal, a tangible and real bliss of truth-awareness. Indian mystics called the Sahasrara "Paradise", "Heaven" or, as Christ has called it "The Kingdom of God within". As the Kundalini passes through each of the vital centres, they are stimulated to produce a pure, nourishing energy. The Vedas (Ancient Scriptures of India) describe this energy as a sacred river emitted by each of the seven chakras. Shankaracharya called this energy "spun". He too described its nature as being like divine water showering down upon him as he meditated in the ecstacy of devotion. Other Indian scriptures call this energy "Paramchaitanya" (energy of supreme consciousness).The miracle of Whitsunday wherein the Apostles became empowered with their spirituality sounds similar to the experience of these chakras manifesting this same divine energy.

Shankaracharya said "All Glory unto the current of Divine Bliss which, brimming from the river of Thy Holy stories, flows into the lake of my mind, through the canals of intellect, subduing the dust of sin and cooling the heat of memory". Much of the gnostic texts repeat this ancient Eastern understanding.

Consider this tract from the Book of Hymns of the Dead Sea Scrolls: "I have reached the inner vision and through Thy Spirit in me I have heard Thy wondrous secret, through Thy mystic insight Thou hast caused a spring of knowledge to well up within me, a fountain of power, pouring forth living waters, a flood of love and of all embracing wisdom, like the splendour of eternal light". The "fountain of power", "spring of knowledge", "Living water", "flood of love", "eternal light" all directly describe the experience of Kundalini awakening! Consider this from the Nag Hammadi Library, the Apocryphal Gospel of Phillip "The Tree of Life is in the centre of Paradise, as is the oil tree from which the anointment Chrisma comes. The Chrism is the source of resurrection". Krishna, the divine being, c4000BC, also described the Kundalini as an inverted Tree of spirituality, whose roots lay in the brain. The 'Tree of Life' is a well recognised symbolic parallel of the Kundalini. So too is the Holy Grail, the cup from which Christ drank at the last supper its symbolic significance being that Christ's sustenance arose from a cup, that is, an object whose receptive qualities reflect the nature of the divine feminine — yet another parallel of the Kundalini.

It is likely that St Phillip's 'Chrisma' is the same 'spun' described by Shankaracharya, the 'Paramchaitanya' or in Christian terminology 'God's grace'. In the Gospel of Peace, Christ explains that the experience of spirituality is foremost. He says the Scriptures are merely conveying an intellectual knowledge, but we are to have the 'living knowledge', that is the experience of our own spirituality. He says "Seek not the law in your Scriptures for the law is life, whereas the Scripture is dead. I tell you truly Moses received not his laws from God as writing but through the living word. The law is living word for living God to living prophets for living men. In everything that is life to the law is the law written, for I tell you truly all living things are nearer to God than the Scripture which is without life. I tell you truly that the Scripture is the work of man, but life and all its hosts are the work of our God. Wherefore do you not listen to the words of God which are written in his works? And wherefore do you study the dead Scriptures which are from the hands of men?". That is, seek the divine experience which is beyond definition, do not settle for mundane human interpretations of the mystic's suprahuman experience. Thus Christ's law is a living, cosmic and experiential one, and is actuated by the awakening of the spiritual experience within the seeker, not by intellectual study or by following those who themselves have not truly had the experience. This directly parallels the eastern teachings; that self- realisation, the pure spiritual awakening, is attained by the righteous and itself gives greater righteousness. More so, self realisation is a process of genuine, inner spiritual transformation which must be experienced to be understood, since it lies beyond the domain of scriptural description or theological definition. Since it is gained by the grace of the Divine Mother( Holy Spirit) alone, it is most certainly not possible to organise or institutionalise this experience in human terms.

This contrasts with the way in which the Churches have pigeonholed and categorised Christianity in terms of 'blind faith', 'obedience to the church' and empty ritual. In the Gnostic Scriptures, untouched by the organised churches, Christ urges us to perceive and experience the cosmic order for ourselves and not to rely on so-called scriptural authorities—such as the churches—to prescribe it to us.

C.G. Jung recognised the link between the Divine Feminine and the Eastern principle of Kundalini. He understood that the Kundalini was the representation of the Goddess within each of us. Is the Holy Ghost the Kundalini? Was the Kundalini a central principle in early mystic Christianity? Such an assumption would help us reinterpret many parts of the mainstream bible, for example; In the Gospel of John, Christ explains to the Pharisee Nicodemus, " Verily I say unto thee, except a man be born of water and the spirit; he cannot enter the kingdom of God", this second birth far from being a licence for so many born again Christian fundamentalists is something much more mystical and subtle in nature. To be "born of the water and the spirit" describes the awakening of Kundalini. She is often described as a divine mother whose ascent within the spine of the seeker gives them rebirth into mystic/gnostic awareness, the 'divine water' is its nourishing energy. The Kundalini enters the Sahasrara and there unites the seeker's awareness with the self or spirit. This is described as a blissful, infinite experience of the kingdom of God within. Thus, Christ's 'born again' Christianity might actually refer to those Christians who have entered the realm of direct experience of divinity, in the state of self realisation.

Other Canon (mainstream) Scriptures can be more deeply understood in this light. In the Gospel of Matthew, Christ says "Be Ye Perfect, even as Your Father which is in Heaven is perfect". (Ch.5, v. 48). This is a clear exhortation by Christ to strive and achieve spiritual perfection, just as the Buddha and other Eastern sages taught their disciples. Christ tells us about our innately divine nature "Ye are Gods" (Psalm 82, v.6; John 10, v.34). Furthermore "Behold the Kingdom of God is within you" (Luke 17, v.21), that is the experience of Heaven is an internal phenomenon. This implies that the inner state of the seeker is the source of their spiritual fulfilment. We could well say that Christ's idea of Heavenly Salvation was an internal state of Godlike perfection.

When the seeker's awareness is completely united with the Eternal Spirit/Self/Atman the true self (not ego, mind, intellect, personality, body or memory) is experienced or realised. Since the spirit is no less than a reflection of God itself then in the state of complete Self Realisation the seeker experiences perfection" as our Father in Heaven is perfect". The Eastern term for this state of Self Realisation is God Realisation and it represents the final stage of our spiritual evolution.

There are deeper references to the chakras and kundalini in the Scriptures. For example, Revelations may also symbolically describe the chakras in St. John's spiritual vision;" I saw seven standing lamps of gold" (the chakras emitting the divine light?), John sees Christ as one of the seven lamps (you will see the significance of this later), Christ is holding the "seven stars" (demonstrating his command of the chakra system?) and speaks of the "seven churches" (the divine institution within each chakra?).In Genesis Jacob envisions a divine ladder directly connecting his earthly being with God in Heaven- this precisely describes the experience and purpose of the kundalini!

Consider this idea: The term 'Jesus of Nazareth', does not (say German theologians) relate to Christ's times in Nazareth. Proper understanding of the original language shows that such a term is not linguistically possible (despite the fact that Paul uses it). The original term is more likely, "Jesus the Nazareen." Nazareen is an Aramaic word meaning "one who has bound himself to the service of God" or "one who is anointed." Compare this to the meaning of Yoga, "Union with God" and 'Yogi'—one who has union with god or to descriptions of the awakening of the Kundalini, "the mystical anointment". The Nazaria were a group of Gnostics contemporary to Christ. They taught a mystic spirituality similar to the Eastern ideas already described. It has been suggested by some authorities that this Gnostic word is ultimately derived from the Hindustani 'Nazar.' This is a yogic term for the point between the eyebrows and above the nose (the 'third eye') where sages of old performed meditation. 'Nazaren' means to envision or behold. Then a more accurate meaning of "Jesus the Nazareen" would be "Jesus who has Yoga or Self Realisation" or "Jesus who meditates". Considering Christ's status as the" Son of God" perhaps a more appropriate meaning would be "Jesus who is the object of meditation". Was Christ himself the object of meditation as are many deities in Eastern cultures? Christ himself might well be the Nazaren.

The Nazar physically corresponds to the location of the Agnya chakra, the sixth vital chakra through which the Kundalini must pass before She enters the Sahasrara. The Agnya manifests physically as the 'optic chiasm' whose shape itself is cruciform! Is the cosmic Christ represented within each of us in the Nazar, Agnya chakra, just as the cosmic Mother or Holy Ghost is represented within us as the Kundalini?

The position of the Agnya chakra is such that it is the final centre to be crossed before the Kundalini finishes its journey to the Sahasrara ( the 'Kingdom of God within'). Entry of the Kundalini into the Sahasara gives the blissful experience of divine awareness. This literally explains Christ's words, "None can enter Heaven except through me"."
