Dear believers in the Resurrection,
Namaste - i bow to the Holy Spirit who resides in you!
Good Friday and Easter is just a few days away. According to the Comforter Shri Mataji the resurrection of Jesus Christ"Is such a long story started thousands of years back, and today it is just reaching its climax", a profound proclamation that is most important to understand and act upon. Thus i have updated the homepage and set the bar higher i.e.," Good News"And"Kingdom of God":
"Since November 1993 the transcendental experiences of children's souls meeting the Divine Feminine thousands of times over the years have been recorded. All three siblings have independently corroborated and identified Shri Mataji Nirmala Devi as the divine personality sent to deliver and explain in detail God Almighty's promised Resurrection and eschatological evolution into the eternal spirit. Shri Mataji has ceaselessly proclaimed this Good News of the Kingdom of God ever since the 1970's."
Without question it is all about the"long story started thousands of years back"And how today, through the Comforter sent by God Almighty on behalf of Lord Jesus," it is just reaching its climax."
Here in Montreal the weather will be turning most beautiful for the Good Friday and Easter weekend. It is going to start rising tomorrow from its normal 5 C to peak at nearly 25 C on Easter, before falling back to 10 C over the next few days. i am going to enjoy myself and hope others enjoy their resurrection too. We must celebrate life eternal, proclaim it to others and fearlessly stand on it. Thanks.
Happy Easter to all,
"When we move on to the biblical narrative of Jesus' resurrection, we discover another series of problems present in the contradictions found in the Gospel texts. Almost every detail of the resurrection of Jesus appearing in one Gospel is contradicted in another Gospel. Yet Christianity was born in whatever the experience of the Easter moment was, and if no ultimate reality resides in that experience, then, in Paul's words, our"faith is in vain" (Cor. 15:14). Such a faith is also probably destined not to be eternal.
But what was the experience that has come to be called the resurrection? Did its reality differ from the description of it given in the Gospel narratives? Can we get beyond those biblical words to a place where we can touch the uninterpreted essence of Easter? Is the truth of Easter bound in time, or is it beyond time and therefore beyond history? Since the experience of resurrection is absolutely essential to the rise of Christianity, this creedal phrase becomes the great divide for the modern man or woman who yearns to be a believer. Where each of us stands in relation to this issue will determine more than most any other whether or not we can still be defined as Christians.
The text of this creed moves on, driving us next into what the church has traditionally called"The second coming"And"The final judgment."What meaning can the phrase"He will come again to judge the living and the dead"have as the third millennium of the common era takes center stage? The New Testament clearly expected the almost momentary return of Jesus to this earth (John 14:3; Matt 16:27; Mark 9:1). Yet that return has not occurred. Was that Gospel anticipation another example of inaccuracies in the biblical account?
Beyond that problem, however, we need to ask what the judgment of God means in the light of the way life is now understood. What is the basis on which what the Bible calls the final judgment will be conducted? When the Bible was written, the people knew little or nothing about social and psychological interdependence. Can anyone be judged today simply as an individual who is solely responsible for who he or she is or for what he or she has done? Postmodern people who know the depths of human interconncetedness, who understand psychological wounding and blessing, cannot be moralistic in the way these traditional creedal images of judgment have always assumed...
When we examine the history of the Church, it appears that guilt, not forgiveness, has been the great lever of ecclesiastical control. Guilt has also been the source of so much of the Church's power. The Church's faith in life after death has been predicated on that guilt being alleviated, purged, or punished eternally. How do the realities fit into this great creedal crescendo?...
Many of us can continue to be believers only if we are able to be honest believers. We want to be people of faith, not people drugged on the narcotic of religion. We are not able to endure the mental lobotomy that one suspects is the faith of those who project themselves as the unquestioning religious citizens of our age. We do not want to be among those who fear that if we think about what we say about God, either our minds will close down or our faith will explode. We are not drawn to those increasingly defensive religious answers of our generation. Nor are we willing to pretend that those ancient words still have the power and meaning for us if they do not. We wonder if it is still possible to be a believer and a citizen of our century at the same time."

Shri Mataji "What Christ did there are many people—I read the other day one book—saying that He never resurrected Himself. I must say they scientifically, they proved scientifically. Can you imagine? How can you prove scientifically I don't understand. According to them He was, He didn't die. Of course He cannot die! He is an Eternal Being. I know that. That part is correct, that He never died. He died the way a Divine has to die, but He resurrected Himself as a Divine has to resurrect. He definitely resurrected Himself, but these scientists were not there to see. Then He descended again; that's a different point altogether. But He definitely resurrected His Divine body. But He had such a beautiful, confident personality after that, that, wherever He went He left a great imprint on them.
But this is the trouble that they try to prove everything scientifically. You cannot prove Christ's Resurrection scientifically. That's why you cannot deny it either.
What He did at the grosser level at that time has to happen within you. That He has done. That's why they say you have to pass through Him. He has done that for you. He has really done it. And we have to see that happening within us. Not by saying that: "Now we follow Christ."And you have one big flag: "Followers of Christ."You see, we are all Christian soldiers walking, and we believe in Christ, and we are all resurrected.' NO! YOU ARE NOT. You are not. At the most, if you are a good Christian or a good Hindu, good Muslim — good, again I say — then you are well balanced for your Resurrection.
But if you are not even that, then it's a problem for Me and a problem for you ... the way people have carried this simple method, of organizing people into better lives, into something so absurd like hating each other, killing each other or all sorts of things you know. It has nothing to do with God. Believe Me. And"We are the chosen ones", and"We are the best", and"We are the selected"— this is self-certificate. If I say I am the graduate of Cambridge University how long can I befool myself and others, which I am not. In the same way we have to be really, really get our certificates from our Selves that we are evolved; not from anybody else.
So we boil down to this point that we have to be really, really honest with ourselves because it is our loss; nobody else, that so far we have not achieved that state of Spirit, and that in all humility we are going to achieve it. We have to achieve it, and that we have to accept that this should happen.
It's a very simple thing. There is no complication if you have not complicated yourself much. But even if you have the Divine Power knows how to disentangle you, and work it out. This is the Blessing of the Divine where you become the Spirit and then you reach your Absolute, from where there is no doubt. If you want to know what happened you just start feeling a Cool Breeze into your hands, from your hands. And then you ask a question," Is there God?"And the Breeze is much more. If you ask about a thug," Is he a good man?", and then it stops.
This rapport is established with your Spirit. It speaks to you as a Cool Breeze. This Cool Breeze in the hand is the energy of your Spirit flowing by which your diseases get cured, and you can cure the diseases of others. You can raise the Kundalinis of others, and give the Realization. And you can enjoy the beauty of Nature, not thinking about it or grossly vaulting it, but just enjoying in a full way. This is the short and sweet.
But it is such a long story started thousands of years back, and today it is just reaching its climax. The fruit is just going to be formed. It's just the Blossom Time has come for this story, and if the seekers co-operate I am sure it will work out. Have all the hopes. May God bless you."
