Shri Mataji: "A great war is taking place between the satanic forces and the Divine Forces"

The incarnation of the Great Mother, Shri Mataji Nirmala Devi
“We have to know that a great war is taking place between the satanic forces and the Divine Forces. And all these satanic forces, symbolized by the word 'evil'; in Sanskrit 'rakshasas, asuras' have taken birth to destroy the Kingdom of God. Imagine what an ambition! They want to ruin your hearts. The Kingdom exists, it will exist and it is eternal. It has created universes and universes, created the human being out of the amoeba, to lead you to your today's position. It brought you here to get what is your ultimate goal. This is what's has been done.

And at this critical moment we are living, at this precious moment where you are about to enter the Kingdom of God, all these forces are organized in order to make you fall. It belongs to your intelligence to understand that these forces are very subtle, full of tricks, and that they are above your comprehension. Even after the Realization, you have been noticing how they manage to make you fall.

If we want to establish fully in the Kingdom of God, we have to fight all the forces that are holding us back. Sahaja Yoga is not for the weak, for the useless people neither for those who are running after money or material things. The foundations of Sahaja Yoga have to be of great calibre, they have to manifest the deep desire for the human emancipation. They are those who will save the, all mankind: they are the redeemers, those who will achieve the salvation of this ruined mankind. We don't need to be many, very few are enough to save the world, but they have to be strong and they must absolutely establish in their own comprehension the powers of the Spirit, the Powers of their Father who is God Almighty.”

Shri Mataji Nirmala Devi
Public Program, Caxton Hall, June 30th, 1980

"It is just for money and power are some people, who are trying to mislead others, keeping them away from Resurrection. I must say they are committing the greatest sin against the Holy Ghost.”

"Now the Time has come to start talking, announcing, telling about it to everyone. Otherwise the world would say that we never knew about it... You must have that vision before you that I have put many a times before you people that you have to emancipate the humanity.”

Jesus: The Last Great Initiate

Chapter 5
Struggle with the Pharisees

This Galilean springtime, during which the dawn of the Kingdom of Heaven seemed to rise upon the attentive multitudes lasted two years. Now, however, the sky darkened, sinister flashes appeared, forerunners of catastrophe. The storm burst upon the small family at Galilee like one of those tempests which sweep the lake of Gennesareth, and in their wild fury engulf the fishermen's frail barques.

Jesus was in no way surprised at the consternation and terror of his disciples, he fully expected it. It was impossible that his preaching and increasing popularity should not stir the religious authorities and himself. On the contrary, from this conflict alone could light flash forth.

At the time of Jesus the Pharisees formed a compact body of six thousand men. Their name Perishin means 'separate' or 'distinguished'. Of a lofty and often heroic though narrow and haughty patriotism, they represented the party of national restoration; their existence only dated from the Maccabees. They acknowledged both an oral and a written tradition. They believed in angels, a future life and resurrection, but the glimpses of esoterism which came to them from Persia they buried beneath the darkness of a gross material interpretation. Strict observers of the law, though quite opposed to the spirit of the prophets who placed religion in the love of God and of men, they made piety consist of rites and ceremonies, fasts and public penance.

On great occasions they were to be seen in the open streets, their faces covered with soot, praying aloud with contrite mien, and ostentatiously distributing alms. In contradistinction to all this they lived in luxury, eagerly intriguing after authority and power. None the less were the chiefs of the democratic party. They were composed of families whose pretension it was to have exercised priesthood by hereditary right ever since the time of David. Extreme in their conservatism they rejected oral tradition, accepted nothing but the letter of the law, and denied the existence of the soul and a future life. They ridiculed alike the stormy practices of the Pharisees and their extravagant beliefs. For them, religion consisted entirely in sacerdotal ceremonies. Under the Seleucides they had deprived the pontificate of power, as they were in complete accord with the pagans, and were even imbued with Greek sophistry and refined Epicurism. The Sadducees were stern and hard- hearted as men, and lovers of good cheer as priests, possessed of one faith, that of their own superiority, and of one idea, the determination to maintain the power tradition had handed down to them.

In such a religion what could Jesus find, Jesus the initiate, inheritor of the prophets, the Seer of Engaddi, seeking in social order the image of the divine, in which justice reigns over life, science over justice, and love and wisdom over all three?

In the temple, instead of supreme science and initiation, he found materialistic and agnostic ignorance, playing on religion as on a power-giving instrument, in other words, priestly imposture. In schools and synagogues, instead of the bread of life, and the dew from heaven falling upon men's hearts, he saw an interested morality under the veneer of formal worship, i.e. hypocrisy. Far above, enthroned in a nimbus of glory, sat almighty Caesar, the apotheosis of evil and the deification of matter, the sole god of the then world, only possible master of the Sadducees and Pharisees, whether they wished it so or not. In adopting the idea from Persian esoterism as did the prophets, was Jesus wrong in naming this reign the dominion of Satan or Ahrimanes, i.e. the rule of matter over spirit, in place of which he wished to substitute that of spirit over matter? Like all great reformers, he attacked not men, who as exceptions, might be excellent, but doctrines and institutions which mould the majority of mankind. The challenge must be delivered, and war declared against the existing powers.

The struggle began in the synagogues of Galilee and continued beneath the porticoes of the temple at Jerusalem, to which Jesus made lengthened visits, preaching and replying to his opponents. In this as throughout his whole career, he acted with that mixture of prudence and boldness, meditative reserve and impetuous action, which characterised his wonderfully well-balanced nature. He did not take the offensive against his opponents, but waited and replied to their attack, which never tarried, for, from the very beginning of his ministry, the Pharisees had been jealous of him by reason of his popularity and his healing of the sick. They quickly suspected him to be their most dangerous enemy. Accosting him with that mocking urbanity, that cunning malevolence, veiled beneath a mask of hypocritical gentleness, in which they were past-masters, in their role as learned doctors and men of importance and authority, they asked what reasons he had for having dealings with publicans and sinners? Why did his disciples dare to pluck ears of corn on the Sabbath day? Such conduct constituted a grave violation of their regulations. With a magnanimous gentleness, Jesus replied in words at once tender and courteous. He tried on them his gospel of love, spoke of the love of God, who rejoices more over one repentant sinner than over many just persons. He related to them the parables of the lost sheep and the prodigal son. In embarrassed astonishment they held their peace. Uniting again, they returned to the charge, reproaching him for healing the sick on the Sabbath day."Hypocrites!"replied Jesus, a flash of indignation illumining his eyes," do not you on the Sabbath day remove the chain from your own oxen's neck and lead them away to the watering trough? May not therefore the daughter of Abraham be delivered this same day from the chains of Satan?"No longer knowing what to reply, the Pharisees accused him of casting out the devils in the name of Beelzebub. With quite as much wit as logical acumen, Jesus replied that the devil does not cast himself out, adding that sin against the Son of Man will be forgiven, but not sin against the Holy Ghost, signifying thereby that he attached slight importance to insults against himself personally, but that a denial of the Good and the True, when once established, constitutes intellectual perversity, the supreme vice and an irremediable evil. This was a declaration of war. He was called Blasphemer! Agent of Beelzebub! Which accusations he answered by the expression: Hypocrites! Generation of vipers! From this time the struggle continually increased in bitterness. Jesus gave evidence of a close incisive logic, his words lashed like whips and pierced like arrows. He had changed tactics; instead of defending himself, he attacked and replied to charges by other charges more vigorous still, showing no pity for hypocrisy, the one vice at the root of all others."Why transgress ye the law of God by reason of your traditions? God recommended, Honour thy father and thy mother: you dispense with honouring parents, if, as alternative, money flows into the temple. With your lips you serve Isaiah, but your devotion is devoid of heart.”

Jesus ever kept perfect control over himself, though the enthusiasm and greatness of the struggle daily increased. The more he was attacked, the more emphatically did he proclaim himself as the Messiah. He began to utter threats against the temple, to foretell the misfortunes that Israel would undergo, to appeal to the heathen, and to say that the Lord would send other labourers into the vineyard. Thereupon the Pharisees of Jerusalem became anxious. Seeing they could neither impose silence on him nor find any effective retort, they too changed tactics. Their idea now was to ensnare him, so they sent deputations whose object it was to induce him to utter heretical sayings which would warrant the Sanhedrim in laying hands on him as a blasphemer, in the name of the law of Moses, or the Roman governor in condemning him as a rebel. Hence the insidious question concerning the woman taken in adultery, and the coin stamped with Caesar's image. Ever penetrating the designs of his enemies, Jesus with profound psychology and skillful strategy, disarmed them by his replies. Finding it impossible to effect their object by these means, the Pharisees attempted to intimidate him by annoying him at every turn. Worked upon and excited by them, the majority of the people began to turn away from Jesus when they saw that he was not restoring the kingdom of Israel. Everywhere, even in the smallest of hamlets, he met suspicious and wily countenances, spies, and treacherous emissaries to track and dishearten him. Some came and said to him," Depart from here, for Herod (Antipas) is bent on killing thee." He replied proudly," Go tell that fox; it cannot be that a prophet dies out of Jerusalem!"Nevertheless, he was often obliged to cross the sea of Tiberias and take refuge on the eastern bank in order to escape these snares.

Nowhere was he now free from danger. Meanwhile John the Baptist was put to death by order of Antipas in the fortress of Makerous. It is said that Hannibal, on seeing the head of his brother Hasdrubal, killed by the Romans, exclaimed: "Now I recognise the fate of Carthage." Jesus could recognise his own fate in the death of his precursor. He had had no doubt of this ever since his vision at Engaddi; had begun his work, knowing the inevitable end, and yet this news, when brought by the sorrow-stricken disciples of the prophet of the wilderness, struck Jesus as a death-warning. He exclaimed : "They did not recognise him, but have done with him as they wished, thus shall the Son of Man suffer at their hands."

Struggle with the Pharisees
Kessinger Publishing; Facsimile edition edition (March 1997)

The challenge must be delivered, and war declared against the existing powers

Every messenger from God was initially rejected by the world. Shri Mataji will have to face the same:

"The founders of religion inevitably met resistance, disbelief, and persecution when they attempted to spread their message. Thus Moses endured the murmurings of his people, Muhammad was branded a charlatan and pursued by his fellow tribesmen of the Quraysh, and Jesus was rejected and slandered by many of the Jews of his day and eventually was executed as an insurrectionist. Confucius was unsuccessful in his efforts to get his teachings accepted by the leaders of his day, and Lao Tzu describes his plight as that of a social outcast. Mahavira and even Buddha, whose ministry is glorified by later traditions, were abused and ridiculed as they wandered from town to town. Yet even more profound than the pains and travails which they suffered in the body was the inner agony of loneliness as these founders wandered about, with no one to understand them or sympathize with their minds. Their only solace was their single- minded devotion to God or their conviction about the truth which they, alone in the world, could understand ...

All these great founders of religion had courage, steadfastness of purpose, and fidelity to the goal which they sought, the cause which they championed, the reality which they realized, and the revelation with which they had been entrusted. With these qualities they could be victorious." (World Scripture, International Religious Foundation, Paragon House Publishing, 1995 p. 427-436)

This site is thus also an open book and challenge to all guardians of religious regimes — priests, pastors, reverends, bishops, popes, rabbis, clerics, imams, mullahs, shaikhs, ulema, ayatollahs, gurus, swamis, pandits, brahmins, acaryas, bhagwans, granthis, gianis, lamas, monks, dalai lamas — to rebut and prove Shri Mataji Nirmala Devi's Divine Message false. Skeptics, atheists or any anti-cult organization, especially those specializing in busting fake gurus and false claims, are most welcome.

Should the high priests of organized religions fail to challenge this site, a forgone conclusion of which we are absolutely assured, they should refrain from further misleading and dividing fellow beings on religious, spiritual and mystical issues that are beyond their present comprehension. The millennia-old rule of the patriarchal priestly class is definitely over. The religious elite should begin to realize that the sun is now setting on their evening empires which are crumbling into sand, and from those ruins is breaking the Dawn of the Divine Feminine that will awaken the human race from their long spiritual slumber.

The challenge must be delivered, and war declared against the existing powers

Wed Jul 23, 2008

Dear All,

i received the above email concerning the Guru puja talk in Cabella.

i am glad that Shri Mataji particularly mentioned that SYs should go to Canada in order to spread Sahaja Yoga. To pick a single country, albeit with a rather small collective, is indeed very significant. Without question, India is the Yogabhumi but still Shri Mataji singled out Canada. We should question ourselves the reason why.

i know WCASY members, collective leaders and other SYs will reject outright any reference to and the revelations of the Divine Feminine. They will decline the irrefutable evidence and Sure Signs of the Holy Scriptures that sets forth the promised eschatological evolution of human beings into the eternal spirit. They will refuse to consider that the Divine Feminine has given unassailable proof that Shri Mataji is indeed the Adi Shakti, Her very incarnation. They will still maintain that we are a family of possessed children craving attention, fame and glory.

So they will quickly downplay and erase this fact from the collective memory, as they have done time and again since 1993 to all that Shri Mataji has repeatedly approved—even mentioning it as miraculous the work that i have done—before leaders and SYs alike.

But gone are the days when the jealousies and destructive negativity of power brokers in the SY organization like Yogi Mahajan, Alan Wherry, Ed Saugstad, John Noyce and others was met with silence, patience and hope. Now if they take out one of my eyes i will take out both of theirs; if they give me a slap i will bash them blue and black; if they even dare take out a single tooth of mine i will make them toothless! As i have said before, this time it is the fight to the finish. Only one of us will be left standing in the end, and i know the outcome already.

So those who want to join hands and spread Shri Mataji's advent and message from Canada are most welcome. As Shri Mataji Herself has warned:

“Now the Time has come to start talking, announcing, telling about it to everyone. Otherwise the world would say that we never knew about it.... You must have that vision before you that I have put many a times before you people that you have to emancipate the humanity....

The work is tremendous. It's not for medium, mediocre people to do this job. Frightened, fearful, arrogant, cheeky - they cannot, they have no mettle.... Tell all the nations and tell all the people all over the Great Message that the Time of Resurrection is here. Now, at this time, and that you are capable of doing it.”

THE MOTHER: Messiah-Paraclete-Ruh-Devi Cowley Manor Seminar, UK - July 31, 1982

All we need to remember is how fearless and dedicated Christ was, all alone, against the certainty of a cruel and barbaric death should He continue announcing the truth. Despite that approaching death, He neither backed an inch in the face of adversary, nor toned down His denouncements of the corrupt and powerful.

However, before His crucifixion He promised to send the"Comforter (who) will recall to their minds Jesus' teachings, will enable them to understand truly and completely, and will develop and expand them into new and wonderful truths.”

“If we follow Him (Jesus) then we cannot be conditioned by anything because He talked of Spirit only. Spirit cannot be conditioned, conditioned by anything... . I am here to tell you all these things which Christ could not tell, and to fulfil what He wanted to say. All those things I am saying to you.”

THE MOTHER: Messiah-Paraclete-Ruh-Devi Christmas Puja, Delhi, India — December 24, 1995

We must never forget, under any circumstance whatsoever, the supreme sacrifice of Lord Jesus. Sir C.P. and WCASY members, combined, are not even the dust of His feet ............ a comparison that insults both intelligence and the Saviour Himself as they are the very source of the antichrist negativity that prevents tens of thousands of SYs from being honest and forthright in informing humanity about the Comforter and Her message to humanity!

So those who want to spread the SYSSR of WCASY and leaders, and their blind servitude to such people, they are not welcome to infect us with their collective antichrist negativity, cowardice, fears and hypocrisy here. This is because “The work is tremendous. It's not for medium, mediocre people to do this job. Frightened, fearful, arrogant, cheeky - they cannot, they have no mettle." So please go away and not infect us with your decades-old collective disease. i repeat - Please go away!

regards to all,

Speak the truth to those who seek it,
And speak of understanding to those who have
committed sin through error;
Strengthen the feet of those who have stumbled;
Extend your hands to those who are sick;
Feed those who are hungry;
Give rest to those who are weary;
And raise up those who wish to rise.
Those who care for others and do good"do the will of the Father.”

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

G. Ladd, A Theology of the New Testament

“But today is the day I declare that I am the one who has to save the humanity. I declare I am the one who is Adishakti, who is the Mother of all the Mothers, who is the Primordial Mother, the Shakti, the desire of God, who has incarnated on this Earth to give its meaning to itself; to this creation, to human beings and I am sure through My Love and patience and My powers I am going to achieve it.

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

“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 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.”

“You see, the Holy Ghost is the Mother. When they say about the Holy Ghost, She is the Mother... Now, the principle of Mother is in every, every scripture — has to be there. Now, the Mother's character is that She is the one who is the Womb, She is the one who is the Mother Earth, and She is the one who nourishes you. She nourishes us. You know that. And this Feminine thing in every human being resides as this Kundalini.”

“It is the Mother who can awaken the Kundalini, and that the Kundalini is your own Mother. She is the Holy Ghost within you, the Adi Shakti, and She Herself achieves your transformation. By any talk, by any rationality, by anything, it cannot be done.”

“She is your pure Mother. She is the Mother who is individually with you. Forget your concepts, and forget your identifications. Please try to understand She is your Mother, waiting for ages to give you your real birth. She is the Holy Ghost within you. She has to give you your realization, and She's just waiting and waiting to do it.”

“The Kundalini is your own mother; your individual mother. And She has tape-recorded all your past and your aspirations. Everything! And She rises because She wants to give you your second birth. But She is your individual mother. You don't share Her with anybody else. Yours is a different, somebody else's is different because the tape-recording is different. We say She is the reflection of the Adi Shakti who is called as Holy Ghost in the Bible.”

Press Conference July 08 1999—London, UK

The Great Goddess is both wholly transcendent and fully immanent: beyond space and time, she is yet embodied within all existent beings; without form as pure, infinite consciousness (cit) ... She is the universal, cosmic energy known as Sakti, and the psychophysical, guiding force designated as the Kundalini (Serpent Power) resident within each individual. She is eternal, without origin or birth, yet she is born in this world in age after age, to support those who seek her assistance. Precisely to provide comfort and guidance to her devotees, she presents herself in the Devi Gita to reveal the truths leading both to worldly happiness and to the supreme spiritual goals: dwelling in her Jeweled Island and mergence into her own perfect being.” (Brown, 1998, 2)
