THE MESSIAH-PARACLETE
Jesus, The Kingdom Of God
And Decreed Resurrection


Jesus and His Own: A Commentary on John 13-17 "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)


"I am the Holy Ghost. I am the Adi Shakti (Spirit of God Almighty). I am the One who has come on this Earth for the first time in this form to do this tremendous task. The more you'll understand this the better it would be. I knew I'll have to say that openly one day ... that I am the Holy Ghost and I have come for this special time, that this is the Resurrection Time."

The Jewish Messiah
"For thousands of years the Jewish people has longed for messianic deliverance; sustained by this belief the community has endured persecution and suffering, confident that they will ultimately be rescued from earthly travail. Yet with the rise of science and the growth of secularism, this fervent conviction has lost its force for many modern Jews. No longer does it seem conceivable that a divinely appointed redeemer will arise to deliver the Jewish nation and bring about the transformation of history. Nonetheless, for some members of the community the belief in the coming of the Messiah continues to retain its hold on Jewish consciousness." (Cohn-Sherbok 2000, xv)

"The general view in the Rabbinic literature is undoubtedly of a personal Messiah... Orthodox Jews continue to believe in the coming of a personal Messiah who will lead all mankind back to God, even while acknowledging, as did Maimonides, that the details must be left to God." (Jacob 1995, 342)
"The doctrine of the Messiah, who will be sent by God to redeem Israel and usher in a new era in which all mankind will worship the true God, is one of the most distinctive of Judaism's teachings. With the strongest antecedents in the Bible, the doctrine was developed, elaborated upon, and given a variety of interpretations throughout Jewish history, but its basic affirmation is that human history will find its culmination and fulfilment here on earth. Ultimately, the doctrine declares, God will not abandon His world to moral chaos. Eventually He will intercede directly in order to call a halt to tyranny, oppression and the pursuit of evil so as to restore mankind to the state of bliss here on earth that is described at the beginning of the book of Genesis, where Adam and Eve lived in the Garden of Eden. The whole of human history is seen as reaching from the Paradise Lost of Adam to the Paradise Regained in the Messianic Age." (Jacobs 1973, 292)



"Even in the Judaism or when they believe in the coming of the Saviour for their salvation, even they have talked about."

"So first the Resurrection Time has to come because in all graciousness and kindness and compassion of God, He is going to give us a full chance to achieve ourselves, because this is His creation. He is anxious to do it. He doesn't want His creation to be destroyed."

The Holy Qur'n
"And We said unto the Children of Israel after him: Dwell in the land; but when the promise of the Hereafter [Redemption] cometh to pass we shall bring you as a crowd gathered out of various nations."
surah 17.104 Al-Isra, The Holy Quran


"104. And We said to the Children of Israel after him: "Dwell in the land, then, when the final and the last promise comes near [i.e. the Day of Resurrection or the descent of Christ ['Iesa (Jesus), son of Maryam (Mary) on the earth]. We shall bring you altogether as mixed crowd (gathered out of various nations)." [Tafsir Al-Qurtubi, Vol. 10, p. 338]

"Jewish State is the 'beginning of the redemption', that is, it is paving the way for the advent of the Messiah." (Jacob, 1995, 150)
"Redemption ... is generally discussed in Judaism under the heading of the coming of the Messiah who will bring Israel's exile to an end and establish the Kingdom of God upon earth." (Jacob 1995, 414)

Israel: The Greatest Sign - by Ken Marineau

"As we read and study the prophecies in the bible concerning the last days, we see that there are a number of signs which taken together strongly suggest the end of this age is drawing near. Grant R. Jeffrey, in his book, 'Prince of Darkness', lists 38 predictions that have been fulfilled or are in the process of being fulfilled in our generation. Jeffrey calculates the odds of just six of these predictions being fulfilled in one generation as 1 in 15.6 billion. The odds of all 38 being fulfilled is virtually beyond comprehension. The single event however, that cements all these things together and gives credence to the notion that they are indeed end time events, is the rebirth of Israel...." (continue)

Return of Jews to Israel "will occur right before the return of the Messiah"
Quran explicitly refers return of Jews to Israel before Last Judgment


"But the Muslims do not want to talk about Resurrection at all because they want to frighten people with the Doomsday. They don't want to talk about the Resurrection Time which is going to come, which is the intermediary time (Al Qadr: The Night of Power), because they want to use the time which will frighten people (Al Qariah: Day of Noise and Clamor) by saying that: 'Now your Doomsday is coming! Now your Doomsday is coming!'"

"So it is all described in Koran. There's a complete Surah describing about 'The Sent One', means 'The Avatar', means 'The Incarnation'. And also said that 'you won't believe', 'you won't accept' and all those things."

The Messiah-Paraclete—January 7, 1990



"In between Jesus Christ and His destroying incarnation of Mahavishnu called as Kalki there is a time given to human beings to rectify themselves, for them to enter into the Kingdom of God, which in the Bible is called as Last Judgment. The population of the Earth is at the maximum these days because all those—practically all those who had aspirations to enter into the Kingdom of God—are born in modern times and are going to be born very soon. This is the most important times because Sahaja Yoga is the Last Judgment. It is fantastic to hear this but that's the fact. It's the Truth! Though you can understand that Mother's Love makes it very easy for you to get to your Realization and that the whole story of Last Judgment, which looks such a horrifying experience, has been made very beautiful, and very tender, and delicate, and does not disturb you."

"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 goal of human life is not death, but resurrection." Karl Barth

"Does Barthian theology have anything to tell a world in which persistent doubt seems to be man's real condition? Because of its roots in an unchallengeable faith and its reliance upon the truth of a book that many men now regard as a volume of interesting poetry rather than a divine revelation, his theology has been described—by Reinhold Niebuhr—as designed for the church of the catacombs." Barth himself believes his work contains "a missionary call." It provides no easy, immediate, specific answers to man's daily worries—but summons him to learn that all questions are ultimately theological, and that the ultimate theological answer has been given. Translated into elementary pulpit talk, Karl Barth's rich and complex theology might appear to resemble the exhortations issued by many contemporary preachers; actually his thought is far more subtly attuned to the psychology of modern man. "To the man in the street," sums up Dr. Robert McAfee Brown, of Union Theological Seminary, "Barth's message is 'God is for you.' You're not trapped in overwhelming guilt and anxiety. In these terribly perplexing modern times, there is hope in the Gospel, for God has involved himself in the human situation through Jesus Christ.""
(TIME April 20, 1962)

"The Paraclete will present the case of God and of the believing community against the world. While the Advocate is teacher and guide to Jesus' people, she turns to the unbelieving world a face of severity. The Spirit will have dealings with the world concerning sin, righteousness and judgment—three things about which the world needs to know and which it thinks it knows on its own... The world needs to be convinced of the truth about itself—something it cannot come to on its own. Yet without that truth, the world is forever self-deceived. The showing of the world to itself is the mission of the Paraclete when she comes." (Stevick 2011, 250)

"The Advocate was introduced in vv. 16-17, but only to say that while Jesus is departing, the Spirit of Truth will abide with believers forever. Here the Advocate is reintroduced, described now as the Holy Spirit, a teacher who continues Jesus' prophetic, disclosing, instructing ministry. Jesus has necessarily spoken incompletely; the Advocate will teach more fully.

Jesus contrasts the particular, limited (albeit basic and crucial) character of what he could impart during his lifetime with the fuller sustained teaching that will be given by the Paraclete who will be sent in his name and who will teach everything.

There are deep continuities: The Paraclete will be to Jesus' people as he has been. She will teach the disciples as Jesus has taught them. The Paraclete will be sent from the Father as Jesus has been sent, and she will be sent in Jesus' name. The Paraclete's teaching will be derivative, not novel: she will remind Jesus' followers of what he has taught. The Spirit (like the Son, v. 24) is the Father's gift-sent in Jesus' name to be in and to the community of faith as he has been. Yet the Spirit will not be Jesus, but Another who will represent him." (Stevick 2011, 165)


Christianity and Islam
"The Truth is sent down by the Holy Spirit; and the Holy Spirit is the Spirit of Truth. This brings us to those three sayings in the Gospel of John in which Christ speaks of the Spirit of Truth. We have, in the translation below, changed the appropriate pronouns to reflect the fact that Christ, speaking either Aramaic or Hebrew, would have used the feminine pronoun when referring to the Spirit, since 'Spirit' in both these Semitic languages is grammatically, conceptually, and theologically feminine:
John 14:17: The Spirit of Truth, whom the world cannot receive, because it seeth her not, nor knoweth her. But you shall know her; because she shall abide with you and shall be in you.
John 15: 26: But when the Paraclete cometh, whom I will send you from the Father, the Spirit of Truth, who proceedeth from the Father, she shall give testimony of me.
John 16:13: But when she, the Spirit of Truth, is come, she will teach you all Truth. For she shall not speak of herself: but what things soever she shall hear, she shall speak. And the things that are to come, she shall show you."
(Zinner 2011, 39)

"To know God itself is such a great blessing because He is the God Almighty; the God who has all the powers and all the loved ones. He is our Father. He is waiting for us to enter into His Kingdom, to enjoy that peace and beauty of His Being because He has created us and He wants His creation to come up to that."

"But to communicate with the people—to communicate with the Spirit, to understand the Kundalini, the vibrations, and their different decodings and all that—the Holy Spirit had to come; with Her mouth, and with Her voice, and with Her intelligence that is intelligible to you; with the knowledge, and everything.

Otherwise it is not possible to communicate and that's why if somebody has to come you have to just recognize. Recognition is the best way of understanding the powers that are given to you...

So somebody has to be there to give you the complete picture. You get Realization, you get vibrations (Ruach, Pneuma, Prana, Chi, Riah Al-Qiyamah), but then what? What about the complete? And for that the Holy Ghost has to take a form. All right?"

Sydney, Australia—April 7, 1981

"One Spirit or Many? Christians want a pneumatology that includes both transcendental and immanent dimensions of the Holy Spirit. God is not merely the 'Wholly Other' but also the 'God with us and in us.' At the beginning of the third millennium, Christians long to see, touch, and feel the presence of the Divine Spirit. Come, Holy Spirit! As Christians seek this, they come into dialogue with other religions that may have experienced Spirit in a similar fashion. Chi and other global understandings of the Spirit also express this Divine within us. Chi, prana, and ha are all versions of the life-giving Spirit and the essential element for all life to exist. If human beings can recognize this and accept this, we can all live in more harmony and peace with one another...." (Kim 2011, 29) (continue)

Christianity Lite, the redirection, watering down, and misinterpretation of the biblical gospel
"It's Christianity for consumers: Christianity Lite, the redirection, watering down, and misinterpretation of the biblical gospel in an attempt to make it more palatable and popular. It tastes great going down and settles light. It seems to salve your feelings and scratch your itch; it's custom tailored to your preferences. But that lightness will never fill you up with the true, saving gospel of Jesus Christ, because it is designed by man and not God, and it is hollow and worthless. In fact, it's worse than worthless, because people who hear the message of Christianity Lite think they're hearing the gospel-think they're being rescued from eternal judgment-when, in fact, they're being tragically misled..." (continue)


"There are lots of myths in the Bible and one of them is that at the Time of Resurrection your bodies will come out of the graves. This is not only for Christians, but also for the Muslims and Jews. Think of this — What remains in the grave after many years? Only a few bones. And if these bones came out how can you give them Realization? Think of it. It is a big myth. Not possible logically.

In Nal Damyanti Akhyan they have clearly given that when the Kalyug will come, all these seekers who are seeking in the hills and mountains will be born again, and they will be given their Self-Realization! Their Kundalinis will be awakened and that is logical, because that is what we are doing today."

"The Church formulated its position regarding reincarnation in response to the controversy surrounding Origen. Origen, a Christian scholar, thought that the human soul exists before it is incarnated into a physical body and then passes from one body to another until it is reunited with God, after which it no longer takes on a physical form. He believed that all souls eventually return to God. He thought that while Christ could greatly speed the reconciliation with God, such reconciliation would not take place without effort by the individual. Since humankind had fallen from God by its own free will, he argued, so humankind must also reunite with God through its own volition. The orthodox opposed Origen's theories, insisting that they depended too heavily upon individual self-determination...." (Ellerbe 1995, 593) (continue)

Theologians and religious institutions of Judaism, Christianity, Islam and Hinduism should respond in good faith to questions raised of the promised return of Spirit (Moshiach/Shakti/Ruh):

"In Moltmann's opinion, all should be seen from an eschatological perspective, looking toward the days when Christ will make all things new. 'A proper theology would therefore have to be constructed in the light of its future goal. Eschatology should not be its end, but its beginning.' This does not, as many fear, 'remove happiness from the present' by focusing all ones attention toward the hope for Christ's return. Moltmann addresses this concern as such: 'Does this hope cheat man of the happiness of the present? How could it do so! For it is itself the happiness of the present.' The importance of the current times is necessary for the Theology of Hope because it brings the future events to the here and now. This theological perspective of eschatology makes the hope of the future, the hope of today." Wikipedia (February 22, 2015)

"Eschatology depends on advent—the coming of God-and on novum—the 'new thing.' This means that the coming of the Holy Spirit upon human beings at Pentecost is an event of paramount importance. It signals the coming of God into the human situation that alters the landscape of history. It is an event that embodies the category novum—God doing a new thing within human beings and human communities by virtue of the indwelling Spirit." (Beck 2010, 145)

"I still have many things to say to you, but you cannot bear them now. There are things that Jesus' followers cannot bear. (The verb is bastazein, which means to carry a burden; there was truth which exceeded the disciples' capacity, and Jesus will say no more now than his hearers can hold.) The comment about the limitation of the disciples in a now-time is made from the advantage of the then-time, when Jesus followers can sustain a greater weight of truth." (Stevick 2011, 257)

i) Has Jesus Christ spoken about all things being made new through the Paraclete Shri Mataji ? and has She brought closure to the Savior's incomplete message over the span of four decades (1970-2011) which can be universally transmitted to a modern, educated world?

ii) Was the Paraclete sent from 1923-2011 AD, or millennia ago, to teach, didasko (John 14:26), remind, hypomimnesko(14:26), testify, martyro (15:26), prove wrong, elencho (16:8), guide into all the truth, hodego (16:13), speak, laleo(16:13) and declare, anangello (16:13, 14, 15) the full and complete message of Jesus and thus empower believers—who receive (lambano), see (theoreo), and know (ginosko) Her—in order to resurrect themselves and others?

iii) Does the crucial completion of the Savior's message confirm that "eschatology should not be its end, but its beginning" as it presently empowers believers to resurrect themselves over a lifespan and finally attain, at its end, His primary motif: The Kingdom of Heaven?

iv) In John 14:12 Jesus solemnly assures the disciples that they will, in future, perform even greater miracles than Him; that through the power of the Holy Spirit, they will bring about the greatest miracle of all -- the salvation of lost souls. Is this great miracle now performed daily by the Paraclete's disciples who have been taught the technique in great detail over the years, or was this miracle mastered two millennia ago at the few minutes of Pentecost?

v) Is there any historical evidence and contemporary logic that just fifty days after the crucifixion, a) "Jesus' followers [sustained] a greater weight of truth", and b), the Paraclete was able to complete the tasks of i)-iv) above in the few minutes of the Pentecost?

vi) Or is it that "the then-time, when Jesus' followers can sustain a greater weight of truth" has arrived and they now can carry the burden (bastazein), since the Paraclete—who is supposed to "teach you, didasko (14:26), remind you, hypomimnesko (14:26), testify, martyro (15:26), prove wrong, elencho (16:8), guide into all the truth, hodego (16:13, twice), declare, anangello (16:13, 14, 15)"—has done so and lightened the task over the span of four decades and more than 3,000 worldwide speaking events?

vii) Did Angels, Messengers And Ruh (Spirit) Come To Declare Al Naba?

viii) Did Devi (Spirit) keep Her word that She will return if needed?

The actual term eschatology is found only in Christian theology but the themes embraced by the term-the doctrine of the Messiah, the resurrection of the dead, the immortality of the soul, and World to Come, heaven and hell-are discussed in detail in the classical Jewish sources, albeit in a non-systematic way. Throughout the ages Jewish thinkers have reflected on what is to happen in the world of the future but much of this reflection is more in nature of speculation than dogmatic formulation. It is, therefore, hazardous to speak of an official Jewish eschatological scheme. What one can do is describe what came to be the conventional view in the Middle Ages, after various tendencies, often contradicting one another, had come together ... (continue)




Interdisciplinary and Religio-Cultural Discourses on a Spirit-Filled World: Loosing the Spirits
"Certainly the Bible makes use of multiple metaphors for the Spirit, the Spirit of God being described as both a power and person. In the Old Testament, God's breath (ruach), or Spirit, is used metaphorically, similarly to God's arm or face, to speak anthropomorphically of God's powerful presence in the world, his vital force that animates life (cf. Gen 2:7; 6:3; Ezek 37:1-14). Like the wind (ruach), the Spirit (ruach) of God is mysterious; it cannot be contained. But it is also foundational to and energizing of all life (Isa 59:21). In the New Testament, the Spirit is similarly portrayed as a powerful force, one 'poured out' on humankind and 'dwelling in' us (Acts 10:44-45). It is the Spirit who fills Jesus (Lk 4:1) and empowers Christians (Acts 2:1-4; Rom 8:14), bringing them eternal life (Jn 3:5-8). But in the New Testament there is also the recognition that the Spirit should be spoken of as a 'person' (Mt 28:19; 2 Cor 13:13)... In the gospel of John, the Spirit is called the 'Paraclete,' an advocate who is to be with us forever (Jn 14:16). Viewed biblically, there are two models given concerning the Holy Spirit: the descriptions hovering between a conception of the Spirit as God's presence as a powerful life force, capable of making dry bones live; and a conception of the Spirit as a personal presence-whether speaking, sending, preventing, making intercession, or being grieved." (Karkkainen, Kim and Yong 2013, 95)

The Holy Spirit, Chi, and the Other
"Chi-Divine and Universal
Chi is the cosmic energy that is present in the world and is mentioned or captured in the majority of world religions. It is in the realm of this Spirit that all religions open themselves and reach out to be related to other religions. Spirit is the foundational and transcendental level on which all religions could meet and remain related. To the extent of our capacity to experience the Spirit, we can be authentic followers of the religion of our choice and practice. The religions all lead to the Divine and we need to understand that the Spirit in each is from the same source- God. Chi is everywhere. It dwells in everything in the universe..."

"Special personalities from Montreal, Canada will give evidence to confirm my Incarnation. You don't have to worry about that for now, but it will happen. You will hear about them later." The Paraclete, Sydney Airport, Australia-April, 1994
"The blasphemy of the Holy Spirit consists of the willful rejection and slandering of the witness of the Spirit with regard to the grace of God in Christ. It includes attributing this witness to Satan, after having been convicted of its truth. It presupposes an honest revelation of this grace, via the Word of God by the Holy Spirit, which cannot be honestly or rationally denied. The convicted sinner rejects the truth even though this rejection contradicts the illumination and verdict of his mind (his conscience). In doing so, the sinner attributes what he knows to be the work of God's Spirit to the devil. The sinner thereby blasphemes God and His Word (Numbers 15:30-31), tramples the Son of God underfoot and insults the Spirit of Grace (Hebrews 10:29)." (Crampton 2004, 47)
"Jesus says that the one who speaks against the Holy Spirit will not be forgiven. To speak against the Holy Spirit is to reject the message of the Kingdom of God and its messenger." Professor Barry D. Smith (Ph.D), Crandall University
"To those who refused to enter the Kingdom and who tried to prevent others from entering (Matt. 23:13), Jesus said, 'You serpents, you brood of vipers, how are you to escape the sentence of hell?' (Matt. 23:33.)" (John 1996, 185)
"When the reader truly understands the meaning of Scripture, what he or she understands is God's message in and through Jesus Christ. Robert L. Saucy writes: 'Since Christ is the theme of Scripture, the Holy Spirit illumines Scripture in such a way as to reveal him in all of his glory.' He adds: "A 'full assurance of understanding' which comes only by the Spirit results 'in a true knowledge of God's mystery, that is, Christ himself' (Col. 2:2)." (Wyckoff 2010, 73)
"Thus, the question of whether and how we can call the Holy Spirit a person cannot be solved by asking whether and how the Holy Spirit can be described in analogy to a self-conscious individual. In the biblical witnesses, however, one of the crucial characteristics of the Spirit is to produce a sphere of public resonance of Christ and his manifestation of God. Thus, to call the Holy Spirit a person (or—as Michael Welker put it—a 'public person'), could help to develop a more adequate concept of person in general." (Oberdorfer/Welker 2006, 28)
"The reaction of the world to the Paraclete will be much the same as the world's reaction was to Jesus. The world does not know or accept the Paraclete, much as it remained ignorant of Jesus' true identity and rejected him.(5:43; 12:48)... The Paraclete will not teach novel truths or a new revelation but will witness to the full meaning of Jesus' mission and revelation." B. L. Marthaler 2006, 276
"In SL 157-9, 271 (cf. also HTG 65), Moltmann extends the image of the Spirit as Mother to 'protecting and consoling, love's empathy and sympathy' (SL 159). He does so primarily by interpreting the role of the Paraclete in John as 'comforter' in the sense of a mother comforting her children." (Bauckham 1995, 170)



Pope Francis
The world will end with peace, not annihilation, Pope Francis says
By Cindy Wooden
Catholic News Service

VATICAN CITY (CNS): Believing in eternity and in the final establishment of the kingdom of God, Christians throughout history — starting with the disciples — were filled with questions such as when the end will come and what will happen to the created world, Pope Francis said.

No one knows the answer to those questions, the pope said Nov. 26 at his weekly general audience, but Catholics are convinced that the end of time will not bring the 'annihilation of the cosmos and of everything around us.'

God's plan, he said, is to renew everything in Christ and "bring everything to its fullness of being, truth and beauty."

The Messiah-Paraclete Bearing Good News Of Jesus' Kingdom Of God, Resurrection. And Last Judgment In Age That Has Come
The Resurrection was expressly taught by Christ (John 5:28-29; 6:39-40; 11:25; Luke 14:14) and is the central eschatological doctrine of Judaism, Christianity and Islam

The Messiah-Paraclete Shri Mataji (Mar 21, 1923 - Feb 23, 2011)
Mar 21, 1923—Feb 23, 2011
Shri Mataji Nirmala Devi was
Christian by birth, Hindu by
marriage, and Paraclete by duty.
She spent four decades of 3000
worldwide speaking events
delivering the Good News.
"The Paraclete represents direct,
intimate divine intervention,
supporting and teaching
believers and challenging the
world, as Jesus did." "The
Paraclete cannot be received by
the world (14:17), as Jesus
himself was rejected (5:43; 12:48;
15:18-20). The world which does
not know the Paraclete (14:17)
did not know Jesus (16:13)."
(Stevick 2011, 290-92)
"The teaching of the Paraclete,
as the continuation of Jesus'
teaching, must also be under-
stood as the fulfillment of the
promise of eschatological
divine instruction."
(Witmer 2008, 208)
"'For my mother [...], but my true
Mother gave me Aeonic [Eternal]
Life.' Filling in the lacuna, it
probably said something like,
'For my [human] mother gave me
birth in flesh, but my true Mother
gave me the Life [of the Aeon].'"
(Keizer 2010, 278)
"... in 14.26, Jesus equates the
Paraclete with the Holy Spirit
and mentions for the first time
that the Paraclete will teach,
reminding his followers of all
that he has said to them. The
Spirit answers the concern of the
disciples." (Stevick 2011, 288)
"But to communicate with the
people, to communicate with the
Spirit, to understand the
Kundalini, the vibrations, and
their different decodings and all
that the Holy Spirit had to come,
with Her mouth, and with Her
voice, and with Her intelligence."

"Because I have said now, 'I am the Holy Ghost', everybody seems to be over happy, and joyous. I have told you whatever was needed for your counselling. I have taught you how to redeem others, and comfort them. You know everything. Now just become masters in this art, forgetting your past. You are all great people, all of you. Declare to all the nations now that I am the Holy Ghost and I have come for this special time, that this is the Resurrection Time."

Sydney, Australia—21 March 1983

Ginosko "The ordinary use is for intelligent comprehension ('to perceive,' 'to understand,' 'to know'), at first with a stress on the act. As distinct from aisthanesthai, ginosko emphasizes understanding rather than sensory perception, and as distinct from dokein it is a perception of things as they are, not an opinion about them. Related to episteme, gnosis needs an objective genitive and suggests the act of knowing rather than knowledge as such. This act embraces every organ and mode of knowledge, e.g. by seeing, hearing, investigation, or experience, and of people as well as things. Supremely, however, knowledge implies verification by the eye; hence the dominant concept is that of knowledge by objective observation." (Kittel 1985, 119)


"The Kingdom of God that we were promised is at hand. This is not a phrase out of a sermon or a lecture, but it is the actualization of the experience of the highest truth which is absolute, now manifesting itself in ordinary people at this present moment."

The Messiah-Paraclete Shri Mataji

"Believers experience the personal presence of the Paraclete in various ways. The word itself defies translation, for it bears multiple meanings, including advocate, intercessor, comforter, and proclaimer. The Greek word parakletos refers to one who is 'called (kletos) alongside (para)'—and the Paraclete is called alongside believers in a variety of capacities." (Gench 2009, p. 103)


"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 Messiah-Paraclete Shri Mataji
Cowley Manor Seminar, UK—31 July 1982

"Scholars divide over the interpretation of the role of the Paraclete declaring "the things that are yet to come" (ta erchomena). Some claim that it is fully eschatological, that is, the Paraclete instructs the disciples concerning the end of time (e.g., Bernard, Commentary 2:511; Windisch, Messiah-Paraclete 12; Johnson, Messiah-Paraclete 38-39; Betz, Der Paraklet 191-192). For others it is an indication of the apocalyptic nature of primitive Christian prophecy (e.g. Bauer, Johannesevangelium 198-199; Bernard, Commentary 2:511; Lindars, Gospel 505)... The Paraclete points the disciples forward to the many things that will flow from the event of Jesus, from 'the hour' (and including 'the hour') until the traditional end of time." (Harrington 1998, 447)


"This is the most important time because Sahaja Yoga is the Last Judgment. It is fantastic to have this but that's a fact & is the truth. Though you can understand, that Mother's love makes it very easy for you to get through your Realization. and that the whole story of the Last Judgment looks such as horrifying experience has been made very beautiful and very tender and delicate and does not disturb you. But this is the Last Judgment I tell you, and you all are going to be judged through Sahaja Yoga, whether, you can enter into the kingdom of God or not."

The Messiah-Paraclete Shri Mataji

"The Last judgment' is not a terror. In the truth of Christ it is the most wonderful thing that can be proclaimed to men and women. It is a source of endlessly consoling joy to know, not just that the murderers will finally fail to triumph over their victims, but that they cannot in eternity even remain the murderers of their victims. The eschatological doctrine about the restoration of all things has these two sides: God's judgment, which puts things to rights, and God's kingdom, which awakens to new life." (Moltmann 2004 Kindle 3685)


"The Last Judgment has started. We are facing the Last Judgment today. We are not aware of it. And all the satanic forces have come out like the wolves in sheep's clothes. And they are trying to attract you and you do not judge them. You only sit down and judge the Reality. It has started! It is a fact! It has started!"

laleo "It was the promise of the Lord Jesus that those believers who were commissioned as witnesses would 'speak with new tongues' (Mark 16:17, Acts 1:8). The word 'speak' positively means to utter words (not just sounds), to give oral expression to thoughts by means of words, not the repetition of unintelligible gibberish. When we say, 'He speaks Spanish', we mean that he expresses himself in the language of the Spanish people. We do not mean that he makes Spanish sounds. The Greek word translated 'speak' (laleo) is found 295 times in the New Testament. In every occurrence, no exceptions, it means to utter intelligible discourse." ( Sellers 2009 , 26)


"I have such respect for so many of them (Muslims). I wish they could accept that this is not Jihad time anymore but Qiyamah Time, the Resurrection Time, the Blossom Time. Are they going to miss it?"

The Messiah-Paraclete Shri Mataji

"Indeed, Jesus taught that his messiahship and the corresponding outpouring of the Spirit were firmly rooted in OT understanding (Luke 4:18ff., citing Isa. 61:1-2), and, similar to intertestamental Judaism, understood the messianic Spirit of the Lord to be the Holy Spirit (Matt. 12:32), the spirit which had foretold through the prophets that the coming Messiah would inaugurate the age of salvation with the pouring out of the Spirit on all flesh. Jesus developed the idea of the Holy Spirit as a personality (e.g., John 15:26; 16:7-15)" (Elwell 2012, 569)


"See the negativity. No intellectual accepted Him. No bureaucrat accepted Him, no educated person accepted Him. He had to actually beg of those very ordinary, mediocre people like fishermen to come and become His disciples. See the situation.

And He was allowed to live only for four years by these horrible people. They may be born today as Christians and must be saying "We are Christians", and "Christ" and "Christ" and "Christ." That's why Christ has said "I will not recognize you." They might be the people who might have crucified Christ. And they're again crucifying Him by denying the living force of the living God.


Four years! Now, what can you do in four years? I told you four years, with all my powers, I was struggling with six hippies giving them realization in London city."

"The Expectation of a Spirit-Bestowing Figure
So far as we can tell, there was no expectation of a messianic figure bestowing the Spirit in pre-Christian Judaism. The expectation of a Spirit-bestowal ushering in or characterizing the age to come is well attested in Jewish scripture. In addition to Ezekiel 36:26-27 just noted, I need mention only familiar texts like Isaiah 44:3, God promise to Israel—'I will pour out my spirit on your descendants'; Ezekiel 39:29-God looks to Israel's return from exile, 'when I pour out my spirit upon the house of Israel'; and Joel 2:28-29—God promises 'I will pour out my spirit on all flesh.' So the thought of an outpouring of the divine spirit was hardly new to Christianity." (Welker 2006, 7)



"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."

"When the name 'God' or 'Lord' is mentioned in Scripture, masculine personal pronouns such as 'He.' masculine, feminine, and neutral (he, she, and it). In Hebrew (and Aramaic) there is not a neuter gender, as 'Himself.' And 'Him' ae used to describe God from a masculine perspective. However, the Holy Spirit as the Ruach ha-Kodesh is in Hebrew in the feminine gender phrase. In English we have three genders: everything is either a 'he' or a 'she,' and the nouns and verbs are either masculine or feminine. The phrase Ruach ha-Kodesh is grammatically feminine, as is comforter, a word identifying one of the activities the Holy Spirit performs for a believer (John 14:16, KJV). There are many comments and commentaries that go in depth to explain why the Holy Spirit is in the feminine and not the masculine." (Stone 2013, 27)


"If we follow Him 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 fulfill what He wanted to say. All those things I am saying to you."

"What the 'spiritual' person 'knows' that the 'natural' person 'does not know,' is not just ordinary, cognitive information but rather spiritual reality-'God's wisdom in a mystery,' which is 'hidden wisdom' until it is revealed and taught by the Holy Spirit.
ULTIMATE ILLUMINATION
If that which the Holy Spirit makes known is 'God's wisdom in a mystery,' then, the ultimate content of the illuminated message is Christ-his person and his work. For the ultimate wisdom of God-the ultimate revelation of God-is none other than Jesus Christ himself. Pinnock expresses the consensus view. 'The purpose of Scripture is identical with the purpose of revelation itself: to witness to Jesus as the Christ.... It is at heart Christocentric. He is the hub of its message.'" (Wyckoff 2010, 73)

"teach you, didakso (14:26)" "The word didasko, commonly translated 'to teach,' is often found in connection with kerysso [proclaim] and the angello [declare] cognates. Didasko means more than just the transmission of information. In a biblical context, the word has in view an intended impact on the recipient's behaviour. Note its reference in the commission of Christ at the end of Matthew's Gospel: Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching (didasko) them to observe all things that I have commanded you, and lo, I am with you always, even to the end of the age (Matt. 28:19-20)
Clearly, what Jesus had in mind was much more than a dry recitation of biblical facts. He wanted them to proclaim a life-changing message-a message that would move His followers to live a life accordance with the imperatives He had entrusted to them." (Fabarez 2005, 8)
"Didaskalos is the Greek equivalent of the Hebrew and Aramaic rabbi. The noun didaskos comes from the verb didasko, 'to teach or instruct.' ... Of the ninety-five occurrences of the verb didasko in the New Testament, more than half (fifty-seven) are in the Gospels, with forty-seven of them referring to Jesus teaching. The Gospel writers thus reveal that teaching was one of Jesus' most prominent activities. Clearly he was recognized as an eminent Teacher." (Zuck 2002, 29)



"The Resurrection of Christ has to now be collective resurrection. This is what is Mahayoga—has to be the collective resurrection."

"Jesus revealing mission, described biblically as the vision of the doxa (12:43; cf. Exod 19:16-20; John 2:11; 11:40; 12:23; 13;31), will continue in the revealing mission of the Paraclete who will take all that is of Jesus and declare it (ek tou emou lempsetai kai anangelei), thus bringing to remembrance what Jesus has said to the disciples (v. 14; cf. 14:26). But this affirmation calls for further clarification lest the disciples think that what the Paraclete declares has its source in Jesus. Both Jesus and the Paraclete are sent by the Father (cf. 14.16, 26; 15:26). Jesus states that everything belonging to the Father also belongs to him. Not only does Jesus receive everything he has from the Father (cf. 5:19, 30), but everything the Father has is his. The oneness between Jesus and the Father (cf. 1:1-2, 18; 10:30, 38) is so complete that what is of the Father is also of Jesus. Jesus is thus the perfect and ideal revelation of the Father, and nothing of the Father can be hidden, as Jesus possesses everything of the Father (16:15; see 1:1:1c). This unique Johannine understanding of Jesus flows into the author's presentation of the Paraclete, who takes all that is from Jesus and will declare it to the disciples in the in-between-time (v.15)." (Harrington 2005, p. 442)


"Announce it to all the seekers of truth, to all the nations of the world, so that nobody misses the blessings of the Divine to achieve their meaning, their absolute, their spirit." The Messiah-Paraclete Shri Mataji
"... anaggellein is also used (in the future tense) of the Messiah who will announce all things and of the Spirit of Truth who will announce the things to come and from Jesus. The only use of apaggello is also future and expresses Jesus' promise to end parabolic talk and openly to announce [the message] concerning the father. Interestingly, all the positive uses of these two forms in John are in the future tense." (Painter 2008 , 125)


"The main thing that one has to understand is that the time has come for you to get all that is promised in the scriptures, not only in the Bible but all the scriptures of the world." The Messiah-Paraclete Shri Mataji
"In John's Gospel, a group of five passages refer to the Holy Spirit as 'Paraclete' or 'Spirit of truth' (14:16, 17, 25, 26; 15:26, 27; 16:7-11, 13-15). Besides their distinct terminology, what sets these passages apart is that (1) all occur in the 'Farewell Discourses' (chaps. 14-17); (2) they deal with the coming of the Spirit; and (3) they describe functions completely different from the ones found in the Gospel's narrative sections (chaps. 1-13, 18-21). While in those sections the Holy Spirit is mostly a life-giving power through which God regenerates and transforms those who believe in Him (3:3, 5, 6; 6:63; 7:37, 38), the predominant idea in the Farewell Discourses features that of an Instructor, a Witness, and a Guide-concepts that go way beyond the impression of an impersonal Power. In fact, those five passages 'provide the strongest evidence for conceiving of the Spirit as a distinct figure, an independent agent or actor' and are among the ones that greatly contributed to the development of the Christian doctrine of the Spirit." (Ministry, April 2012 April Issue)


"It's not tactful to say anything. It's better that you discover me than I tell you because Christ was crucified, everybody was tortured. I do not want to hamper my work because it makes no difference by telling you anything before Realization. It's better to tell you after Realization that I am the Holy Ghost—no doubt. I am the one about which Christ has talked.

I have told them I had never said this on from a platform, and I told. They have been telling me 'Mother, you must say that once.' I said, 'In America I'll declare it.' So today I declare that I am the Holy Ghost. I am the Holy Spirit who has incarnated on this Earth for your Realization."

The Messiah-Paraclete Shri Mataji
New York, USA—30 September 1980

"Mention of the Spirit introduces one of the themes peculiar to the farewell discourse—the five sayings about the 'Paraclete' (an attempt to transliterate parakletos, variously rendered 'Counsellor', 'Helper', 'Advocate', 'Comforter': cf. notes at 14:16). All five passages (14:15-17, 25-26; 15:26-27; 16:7-11, 12-15) apply the term to the Holy Spirit." (Carson 1999, 480)


"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."

The Messiah-Paraclete Shri Mataji

"The same vocabulary describe the advent of the Paraclete, except that the tense is future: 'The Paraclete, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in my name, will teach you all things, and bring to your remembrance all that I have said to you' (14:26). Since Jesus was sent from the Father, the relationship between Jesus and the Paraclete has to be clarified with the idiom 'in my name', and the Paraclete's role defined as bringing to remembrance Jesus' teachings (cf. 14.24). In 15.26 it is Jesus who does the sending: 'When the Paraclete, whom I shall send to you from the Father, comes', but he sends the Paraclete 'from the Father' (cf. 16.7)." (Davies 1992, 164)


"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 Messiah-Paraclete Shri Mataji

"The Spirit will also declare to the disciples 'what is coming' (ta erchomena, 16:13). The Spirit's proclamation should be understood in the light of the rest of the New Testament. As Holwerda writes, 'The task of the Spirit to teach all things, to lead into all the truth, and to declare the things to come is essentially one: the Spirit reveals the meaning of the Heilsgeschichte, the meaning of the saving events, past, present, and future. The Spirit reveals to the disciples the meaning of the work of the historical Jesus, the exalted Jesus, and the Jesus who is to come.'" (James Hamilton, 2006)

"The Declaration of Independence of the State of Israel, signed by David Ben Gurion and members of the provisional council of state and members of the provisional government, reads in part:

'Eretz-Israel was the birthplace of the Jewish people. Here their spiritual, religious and political identity was shaped. Here they first attained to statehood, created cultural values of national and universal significance and gave to the world the eternal Book of Books … On 29 November 1947, the United Nations General Assembly passed a resolution calling for the establishment of a Jewish State in Eretz-Israel … Placing our trust in the Almighty, we affix our signatures to this proclamation at the session of the provisional Council of State on the soil of the homeland, in the city of Tel Aviv, on this Sabbath eve, the 5th day of Iyar, 5708 [14 May 1948].

In this historic document, visionary and noble in its aims and comparable to the American declaration of Independence, there can already be heard echoes of the older conflict between Jewish secular nationalism and Judaism as a religion. It is not necessary to see the words 'placing our trust in the Almighty' as a sop to the religious and it was certainly intended as a sincere declaration of religious faith, whether or not a faith subscribed to by all the signatories. Yet it is significant that, perhaps to appease the secularists, very little is said about religion and it is the Jewish people, not God who shaped their 'spiritual, religious and political identity, and it is they 'who gave to the world the eternal Book of Books'. This ambivalence was inevitable granted that some Jews saw Israel as a modern, democratic, secular State while others saw it in semi-numinous terms as, in the language of the religious Zionists, 'the beginning of the Redemption', that is, as paving the way for the coming of the Messiah."

Louis Jacob, The Jewish Religion
Oxford University Press (Feb. 18 2003) p. 273-4

"Christian christology has divided Christians and Jews. That is true. But it does not have to degenerate into a Christian anti-Jewish ideology, since hope for the messiah also links Christians with Jews, and this link is stronger than the division. Community in contradiction is often stronger than community in agreement. For that reason, no Christian christology must ever attempt to obliterate the Jewish hope for the messiah: Jesus is not 'the end of the messiah'.' And for the same reason, no Christian christology must purpose to inherit the Jewish hope for the messiah, thereby - consciously or unconsciously - declaring that the testator is now dead: Jesus is not `the fulfilment' of the messianic hope which puts an end to Israel.2 Finally, no Christian christology must surrender the hope for the messiah. Without it Christianity will be paganized. It will be anti-Jewish through indifference.' Christian christology is a particular form of Israel's hope for the messiah, and it is still related to, and dependent on, the Jewish forms of the messianic hope that anteceded Christianity and run parallel to it." (Moltmann 1990 Kindle 170)

Ruach, breath of God, experienced daily by those taking part in the Resurrection

taken 1st August 2008 in Russia of Ruach
which, though invisible to the naked eye,
can be felt as Cool Breeze (pneuma, prana, qi,
Riah al-Qiyamah
) flowing from the palm of
hands, head (fontanel) and other parts of body.

According to the Paraclete Shri Mataji, the Cool Breeze (Ruach, Pneuma, Reeh al-Qiyamah) is evidence of 'being born again', the promised evolution of humans into the eternal spirit. In many different traditions the perception of the nature of God has been described by individuals that claimed to have God experiences as being accompanied by a breath-like feeling in ways that seem similar to the cool breeze (pneuma). Whether it is called Chi (Chinese), Ki (Japanese), Prana (Hindus), Ruach (Hebrew prophets), Reeh al-Qiyamah (Quran), Pneuma (Greeks), or Spiritus, the latin word from which the English word 'Spirit' is derived, this Breath of Life has the same meaning in all these languages and cultures. Chinese, Christian, Arabic, Indian, Greek, and contemporary writings describe the experience of the divine as a mysterious wind ... (continue)





4. "His search for God led us to meet Mataji." — Niranjan Mavinkurve

The Great Adi Shakti Shri Mataji Nirmala Devi
The Messiah-Paraclete Shri Mataji
"I got my first Realization on 12th August 1973. The credit for this Realization goes to my eldest brother, Maruti, who had a yearning for getting Realization for a number of years. His search for God led us to meet Mataji.

On a fine day of 12th August, we read an article written by one Marathi newspaper editor about Shri Mataji and Sahaja Yoga and that led us to approach him in his office. We went to see him and he explained how things had happened to him. He told us to visit Bharata Vidya Bhavan on that same day. We left his place and went to Bharata Vidya Bhavan about ...

5. "Equally appealing for modern believers, the Jesus of the hidden gospels has many points of contact with the great spiritual traditions of Asia." — Philip Jenkins

Hidden Gospels: How the Search for Jesus Lost Its Way
"Despite its dubious sources and controversial methods, the new Jesus scholarship of the 1980s and 1990s gained such a following because it told a lay audience what it wanted to hear. For some ideological perspectives, the new view of early Christianity has been almost too good to be true, in validating postmodern approaches. The hidden gospels have been used to provide scriptural warrant for sweeping new interpretations of Jesus, for interpreting theological statements in a purely symbolic and psychological sense, and for challenging dogmatic or legal rules on the basis of the believer's subjective moral sense. Generally, the hidden gospels ... (continue)





6. "This worst of times needs the clearest and most unflinchingly exigent of visions to counteract and transform it" — S.L. Davies

Stevan Davies, The Gospel of Thomas
"There may be very little time left to take the adventure into total being that the Gospel of Thomas advocates with such astringent brilliance and precision. In such a terrible age as ours, it is easy to believe that the dark powers, the powers of that corpse of the world that the Jesus of Thomas so fiercely denounces, have won already, and there is nothing even the most passionate of us can do to turn around a humanity addicted to violence and destruction.

Despair, however, is the last illusion. The Gospel of Thomas and the Jesus who gave it to us continue to challenge us to dare ... (continue)





7. "The Spirit will declare the things that are to come (v.13), and she will declare what is Christ's (vv. 14, 15)" — Daniel B. Stevick

Jesus and His Own: A Commentary on John 13-17 "The Paraclete Communicating
By the Paraclete, God imparts God. 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 Sprit'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 ... (continue)

The Divine Mother
Inner Voyages
"What might be next in theology? Philosopher-Psychologist Jean Houston, co—director with her husband R. E. L. Masters of the Foundation for Mind Research, believes that current experiments in deepening awareness by psychological techniques or with drugs (which she does not advocate) are already leading to a rise in what she calls 'experiential' theology. According to Houston, the human psyche possesses a 'built-in point of contact' with a larger reality that is experienced as divine. As the laboratory 'improves upon techniques developed in the monastery,' people will increasingly encounter this interior sacrality. Indeed, she claims, "theology may soon become dominated by men whose minds and imaginations have been stimulTIME Dec. 26, 1969 ... (continue)





9. "It is she, not a wife or a saint, who assumes the public role of teacher and is capable of teaching all of humankind" — Karen Pechilis

The Graceful Guru
"In the medieval period, there is an ultimate feminine guru represented in a classical text: the Goddess. It is she, not a wife or a saint, who assumes the public role of teacher and is capable of teaching all of humankind, which is the perspective advanced in the Devi Gita... the culmination of earlier stories of the Goddess found in the puranic mythological stories and in early tantric texts, precisely because the Devi Gita raises the Goddess to the level of Supreme Ruler. In the Devi Gita, supreme cosmic power is unambiguously female: she is a beautiful goddess, her power is the feminine shakti, and she is not linked to a male god ... (continue)

Dear disciples of Shri Mataji,

Namaste - i bow to the Messiah-Paraclete who resides in you!

Thanks Isabelle. i just love the photo and Her promise. It will now remain permanently here, and i will explain why in the next paragraph.

Since 1994* i know what that promise truly meant. i have been defending and holding on to that truth for the last 17 years. Now, with Her Mahasamadhi, it is a source of great comfort, strength and resolve. i wish all Her disciples grasp the truth and reality of "Tat Twam Asi", the deeper meaning of that quote! Lord Jesus is telling you the same when He says the Messiah-Paraclete will remain with you forever.[1]

For those who have followed Shri Mataji the world over for the last four decades to listen to Her Good News of the Kingdom of God, and for those who also intimately experienced the Messiah-Paraclete within themselves in vivid visions ... (continue)





11. "This book is my attempt, as a sociologist of religion, to answer the question raised by my friend that day. It is about Sahaja Yoga, the new religious movement (NRM) whose member was responsible for the 'cool breezes' which he felt." — Judith Coney

Judith Coney: Sahaja Yoga
"One spring afternoon in 1992, a Norwegian friend who was living in my village for a year whilst he completed a Master of Business Administration at Bath University dropped over for coffee. After exchanging the usual set of pleasantries about the weather and a few comments about the local primary school, he introduced a new topic into the conversation. Knowing my interest in new religions, he said, was I aware that some people in the next village were 'giving cool breezes'? I confessed my ignorance and pressed him for details. One, a woman called Jane, he continued, had given him a sort of massage and as a result he had felt a cool breeze ... (continue)

THE MOTHER: Ruach Elohim
Since November 1993 the transcendental experiences of children's souls, each meeting the Holy Spirit hundreds of times in the Kingdom of God within* over the years, have been recorded. They have identified Shri Mataji Nirmala Devi to be Her incarnation, sent to deliver the message and means to participate in the promised Resurrection and evolution into the eternal spirit.

Shri Mataji, as the pledged Paraclete, has openly and repeatedly proclaimed the Good News (Al Naba) of the Kingdom of the Spirit since the 1970s. (She passed away peacefully February 23, 2011 in Genoa, Italy at ....) (continue)

The Messiah-Paraclete Shri Mataji
"That you have to be born again, that you have to be baptized, that you have to become a Pir, that you have to become a Brahmin; all these descriptions have come to us from all the great scriptures. It is very easy to say that we don't believe in God, we don't believe in any Incarnation, we don't believe in Jesus, we don't believe in any religion, we don't believe into anything; is very easy to say. Even it is easy to say that we believe in them, we believe in God, we believe in Christ, we believe in Krishna, Rama, all that. Both things are equally the same ... (continue)






14. The experience of the Cool Breeze (Pneuma, Reeh al-Qiyamah, Prana, Qi, Vibrations) will be proof of promised Resurrection (kundalini awakening) and life eternal (moksa).

According to Aaron-Golan in The Illustrated Bible Dictionary, "The coming eschatological salvation is envisaged in transcendent and universal terms.... in the form of both bodily resurrection and of spiritual immortality." Please note that the person in the foreground bending down to hand something or talk with someone has the Divine Wind (Ruach, Ki, Prana, Ruh, Pneuma, Spiritus) and halo still suspended at its original position i.e., when he was still standing straight. The rest of the Divine Wind is trailing off his body and that of the person besides him as they move forward. All who are taking part in the Last Judgment and Resurrection are being purified by this Ruach ... (continue)

It must be made clear again that except for quotes and images of Her incarnation Shri Mataji Nirmala Devi this site is almost entirely about the Divine Feminine (Devi/Holy Messiah-Paraclete/Ruh/Tao/Aykaa Mayee/ Mother). There is no hidden agenda and this site contains all the knowledge and evidence required to re-establish the faith, belief and conviction in the Divine and the promised Resurrection to evolve into the eternal spirit - 4000 pages and counting. The mystical Kingdom of Spirit (Sahasrara) is within your being. There is thus absolutely no need for any external religious/spiritual organizations, dogmas, rituals, worship of images/ idols, or any human intermediary whatsoever ... (continue)

The Messiah-Paraclete Shri Mataji
"MATAJI was born at Nagpur at 12.09 p.m., I.S.T. (noon time) on 21st March 1923. At this moment, taking into consideration the local time of Nagpur, the Sun was exactly on the Meridian in full glory, and being in the zero degree of Aries or the 30th degree of Pisces, the Sun in that position made a Rajayoga (i.e. an aspect for leadership and prominence in life), which has endowed her with the Sun's glamour and power.

Her rising sign is Cancer and the Ascendent is in the 8th degree. The Ascendant in Cancer makes her a Mother of the Universe, a Jaganmata, as the Ascendant is strongly aspected by five planets ... (continue)
