Prophet Muhammad




  
The Holy Qur'an

 

The Id Al-Adha Of 1995

A year later on May 10, 1995, at 7:35 a.m. Kash was again told to send greetings to Prophet Muhammad. It was Id Al-Adha again.


The divine attributes of knowledge, power, life and so on were real; they had belonged to God from all eternity. But they were distinct from God's essence, because God was essentially one, simple and unique. He could not be regarded as a complex being because he was simplicity itself; we could not analyze him by defining his various characteristics or splitting him up into smaller parts. Al-Ashari refused any attempt to resolve the paradox: thus he insisted that when the Koran says that God "sits on his throne," we must accept that this is a fact even though it is beyond our understanding to conceive of a pure spirit "sitting."

Karen Armstrong, A History of God

He meditated and met Shri Mataji in the Niche of Light. The Supreme Light shone ever so brilliantly from behind the Eternal Throne of the Great Formless Mother as She sat in Bliss and Joy. The Universal Beings were all already there and sitting in a semi-circle; Shri Krishna and Shri Radha, Shri Shiva and Shri Parvati, Shri Vishnu and Shri Lakshmi, Shri Sita and Shri Rama, Shri Brahma and Shri Saraswati, Shri Jesus, Prophet Mohammed, Shri Buddha, Guru Nanak and others. Kash bowed to all of them and exchanged greetings.

He then told Shri Mataji of his desire to see Prophet Muhammad and extend season greetings on this auspicious day.
The Spirit of the Living God got down from the Highest Throne and asked him to follow Her as She walked towards a gap in the semi-circle of the Divine Messengers. Al-Muzzammil (The Enwrapped) Shri Nirmala Devi did not tell him where Prophet Muhammad was sitting or ask him to use his vibrations, as was normally the case, but went along instead as She knew that Kash could not speak Arabic and thus would not be able to greet Nabi Muhammad.


The truth does not necessarily come from priests, or from the superstitions of whole peoples. It come from Allah, and where there is direct revelation, there is no room for doubt.

Abdullah Yusuf Ali, The Holy Qur'an, Amana Corporation, 1989, 141.

Prophet Muhammad was sitting in between Shri Ganesha (left) and Shri Krishna (right.) Kash then bowed to Him, hands folded in obeisance, and conveyed his Haj greetings. Prophet Muhammad replied, "Thank you very much" in Arabic. (Shri Adhiparasakthi Shri Nirmala Devi translated the reply into English for the benefit of Kash.)

They then walked back to their original places.

The Ruh of Allah then sat on the Golden Throne and invited everyone to begin meditation. All the Divine Beings in unison raised their Kundalinis, did the Bandhan, and went in deep meditation.

When the meditation was over Al-Muddaththir (The Enfolded) Shri Nirmala Devi awakened Kash. He requested for leave, bowed to Her, and wished the Divine Messengers again. He then slowly descended through the clouds and returned to this scheming world of ‘chosen people’ and ‘Allah’s Ummah.’


Revelation is not a mere chance or haphazard thing. It is a real blessing — among the greatest that Allah has bestowed on man. By meditation on it in an earnest spirit man may learn of himself, and his relation to nature around him and to Allah, the author of all. Men of understanding may, by its help, resolve all genuine doubts that there may be in their minds, and learn the true lessons of spiritual life.

Abdullah Yusuf Ali, The Holy Qur'an, Amana Corporation, 1989, . 1168

Note: Kash is positive that Prophet Muhammad spoke Arabic as he had heard the language being spoken before, and it sounded similar. He explained that it was different, a language that was "spoken from the throat."

Months later, on August 29, 1995, at 12:35 p.m., he was again asked how he knew that Shri Mataji spoke in Arabic. Again he told that the language was different from the one the Great Sacred Mother normally spoke to the Divine Messengers (including Shri Buddha and Guru Nanak), that is, Sanskrit and Gurumkhi. He was sure it was Arabic due to its guttural tone. He then explained that he had heard this language being spoken on Channel 24 of Vidéotron, the ethnic cable television of Quebec (Canada), which has a fair share of Middle East slots. This spontaneous evidence, given without any hesitation whatsoever, could not be disputed and the issue was settled. 

The Divine Mother conveyed the Id Al-Adha greetings to Prophet Muhammad in Arabic — This Revealed Truth is Absolute.

This conversation of Allah’s Ruh with Prophet Mohammed in Arabic clearly establishes the fact that there is much more to the Single Source and Primordial Origin of God and His Messengers than previously known or admitted by the false preachers of institutionalized religion. Since Shri Mataji Nirmala Devi and Prophet Mohammed conversed in Arabic, this has not only narrowed down but in fact pinpointed the Source of His Spirit in all Messengers. If Prophet Muhammad was heard speaking to the Great Divine Mother in Arabic, then who is She? If the All Pervading Consciousness was seen and heard conversing to Rasul Allah in Arabic, then who She really is? She is the Holy Spirit of God, the Ruh of Allah, the Adi Shakti of Sadashiva, who resides in every human being!

The essence of the above statements was already confirmed earlier on August 6, 1994, when Kash inquired about the number of languages She spoke. The Great Primordial Spirit told him, 

"I know all languages."

Ruh of Allah Shri Mataji Nirmala Devi
Montreal, August 6, 1994


To truly comprehend the magnitude of this Revealed Truth requires deep introspection. Only the All-Knowing Allah knows all languages — This Revealed Truth is Absolute. Allah, through His Spirit, has to know what every human being is talking, thinking or hearing and, in extremely rare instances, communicate back. Shri Mataji Nirmala Devi has openly declared to humankind that She is the One, the Ruh of Allah, in a human form who has come to this Earth to announce His Call for Resurrection. Since She is speaking the Truth we have to declare it to all nations because the pursuit of Allah demands the pursuit of Truth. Shri Adhiparasakthi Shri Nirmala Devi is the manifestation of the Spirit of Allah residing in every human being! Shri Majja-Samstha Shri Nirmala Devi is the the "Caller from a Place Quite Near’ (surah 50:41 Qaf) and Al Tariq (surah 86:1 The Night Visitant) in the Qur’an who announces Qiyamah. She is Al-Muntazar, The Hidden Imam Mahdi prophesied to lead the final Mighty War (Battle of Qa’im) against the Evil Forces. She is the Messiah that all Holy Scriptures prophesied.

The Ruh of Allah Shri Mataji Nirmala Devi has made it clear to all seekers of Truth that they have to believe in the Divine Unity and accept all the Holy Books. Shri Nirmala Devi has provided evidence that all religious institutions have preached falsehood and will not lead to salvation. She has made it imperative that all religious Idols and their centuries-old dogmas are just self-conceived mental concepts of God, observing rituals absolutely incapable of connection with Him and penetrating the Ultimate Reality (Al-Haqqah). The Great Holy Spirit Shri Shri Nirmala Devi has made it clear to all humankind that only His Spirit existing within their own beings will lead them to Truth.


Belief in the Angels

34:40: "And on the day when He will gather them all together, He will say unto the angels: Did these worship you?"43:53: "Why, then, have armlets of gold not been set upon him, or angels sent along with him?" It is said that the word "angel" comes from the Latin "angelus," which is borrowed from the Greek "angelos." In Arabic the word is "malak" or "malaak," plural "malaa'ikat." The Arabic root verb "alaka," which means "to give a message," confirms the angel's etymological connection to the function of Messenger of God in the Semitic languages.

The existence of angels is one of the pillars of belief in most religious traditions and that is the case in Islam also. God mentions the angels in the Holy Koran in more than ninety different places. They also occupy prominent places in the narrations of the Prophet Muhammad, Peace be upon him, and the many accounts of saints and the pious men and women of the recent past and present. The following pages are an all-too-brief selection of some of the accounts and explanations that have reached us from those three sources.

The Koran says (2:285): "The Messenger believeth in that which hath been revealed unto him from his Lord and so do the believers. Each one believeth in God and His angels and His scriptures and His messengers — We make no distinction between any of His messengers — and they say: We hear, and we obey. Grant us Thy forgiveness, our Lord. Unto Thee is the journeying." God thus orders every person to believe in His angels as an obligation parallel to that of believing in Himself, His Books, and His Messengers.


Shaykh Mumammad Hisham Kabbani, Angels Unveiled: A Sufi Perspective

The Reality of Allah’s Spiritual Kingdom and His Mighty Messengers has been revealed to children, two of whom are confirmed as angels. This Revelation comes from the Ruh of Allah Herself, and sealed by evidence beyond human manipulation -- their precise birth dates on the holiest days of Islam and Christianity, that is the Muslim Id-Adha of 1990 for Kash and the Christian Easter of 1994 for his sister, Lalita.  

They have all walked the tariqah (Path), pierced the haqiqah (Reality), gone through fana fi ash shaykh (Annihilation in the Master), overcome fana fiar-Rasul (Annihilation in the Prophet), and reached fana fi-Allah (Annihilation in God.) They have all clearly described Lahut, the divine world of Reality, in detail and accuracy that no mortal human has ever done before. They have all proved, beyond any doubt, that Allah and His Kingdom exists within humans, and can be experienced.

This information about their births has to be disclosed because Muslims will refuse to believe that it is possible for any human to reveal about Prophet Muhammad, Al-Qiyamah or Allah's Ruh. And of utmost importance these extremely sensitive issues must be irrefutably backed by the Quran! With all this in mind we will thus try to explain briefly the circumstances surrounding this Blast of Al-Qiyamah Truth.

On April 3, 1994, just after the birth of Lalita on Easter, Shri Adhiparasakthi Shri Nirmala Devi revealed to Kash that his sister was an angel.

On April 10, 1994, Kash meditated and went into his Sahasrara. The Divine Radiance shone ever so brilliantly from above the Eternal Throne as the Great Sancta Maria sat in Bliss and Joy. He bowed down to Her. Before meditating he asked the Spirit of the Living God whether it would be all right to tell the Sahaja Yogis that Lalita was an angel. The Great Divine Mother replied: 

"Sure you should tell them. They will be glad to hear it."

Ruh of Allah Shri Mataji Nirmala Devi
Montreal, Canada, April 10, 1994

All these mystical Revelations soon began puzzle the father. As the torrential manna monsoon lashed from all sides shelter was sought in rationality. Why was all this happening to him? What had he done to deserve such blessings? Why to someone who never stepped in a temple to seek God Almighty? There were so many questions. However, one question urgently needed an answer. If Lalita was an angel then who was Kash?

On April 23, 1994, Kash was told to solve this mystery. He bowed before the photograph of the Great Spiritual Mother, raised his Kundalini, and went into fana (deep meditation). The Power of the Holy Ghost immediately led him up the Tree of Life, pass the Gate of Lord Jesus at the Agnya Chakra and into the City of Light — this was the Kingdom of God within all humans declared by the Universal Savior twenty centuries ago.

The Everlasting Light shone ever so brilliantly from above the Celestial Throne of the Great Holy Mother as the Ruh of Allah sat in Bliss and Joy. He bowed and asked permission to pose a few questions. She agreed.

Kash: "Mother! Who was I in the previous life?"

"I am glad to answer you this question."

Ruh of Allah Shri Mataji Nirmala Devi
Montreal, Canada, April 23, 1994


Kash: "Can you answer this question please?" 

"Okay. You were an angel, and you came down to Earth to help everybody."

Ruh of Allah Shri Mataji Nirmala Devi
Montreal, Canada, April 23, 1994


Next morning, on April 19, 1994, Kash went to meditate again with Shri Mataji. The divine energy of the Shekinah coursed through the Sefirots and took him into the Pleroma, the Bridal Chamber that ancient Hebrews knew existed within all humans. He opened his eyes as he emerged from the celestial clouds of the Kingdom of Heaven. The Supreme Spirit was sitting on the majestic Throne, with the Eternal Light shining above Her.


What is Sri Vidya

A title originally in ancient times reserved for those who were initiated into Sri Vidya, they in whom God's glory of the universe has made a home, those who are endowed with knowledge, empowered with the energy and the intuition of mother Sri.

Kash bowed and squatted before Her. He then had a talk with Her. In the course of this conversation the Great Spirit told him that his name in heaven was "Shri," and that both Lalita and he were from the same family living in heaven.

On April 23, 1994, at 17:45 hr., after been earlier revealed his own true identity, Kash meditated and reached the Tabernacle of God in his Sahasrara. The Eternal Light shone from above the Eternal Throne as the Ruh of Allah sat in Bliss and Joy. He bowed before the Supreme Spirit and asked Her this question: "Shri Mataji, can I tell everybody that I am an angel and my name is Shri?" Shri Satyananda-svarupini Shri Nirmala Devi replied:

"Of course tell everybody your name is Shri. Then everybody will believe in God!"

Montreal, Canada, April 23, 1994


Then on September 8, 1994 the Ruh of Allah sealed Her previous confirmations about Kash and his sister Lalita with these words:

"This is the first time in history that there are two angels in one house."

Ruh of Allah Shri Mataji Nirmala Devi
Montreal, Canada, September 8, 1994



Shri Mataji Nirmala Devi attended this recent Sahaja Yoga public program held at Albert Hall, London, UK. Below is a quote from the Sahaja Yoga News magazine:

“Then She asked if anyone wanted to ask questions. A stream of questions began and again Sri Mataji turned many of them into a joke and got everyone laughing. It felt very luxurious as though we had all the time in the world, that everyone was going to be completely satisfied.

Somebody asked Her about Angels and She said that Angels are like the flowers. They are beautiful. You cannot see them, but they are there sometimes working through a human form to help you in many ways.”

Carol Robertson, Sahaja Yoga News, 13/10/00

It was out of unrestrained Joy and Bliss brought by the knowledge of their identities and the priceless boons of the Great Spiritual Mother that this news was poured out. There was just innocence in the hearts of Kash's parents for only fools would be proud of such divine blessings. It was thought that all humankind could share and rejoice in these Celestial Gifts and be filled with hope, vision and joy of the promised Afterlife. Millions of spiritual seekers were waiting in eager anticipation, convinced that the Conscious Universe was on the brink of bestowing supreme enlightenment on the human species. They had the right to know what had transpired and judge the Truth with their own heart, mind and soul.

This Good News of the birth of angels and the existence of His Kingdom was told to some Sahaja Yogis, and there were great expectations of collective bliss. After all it was the Great Adi Shakti Shri Mataji Nirmala Devi Herself who had made such miracles possible and presented irrefutable evidence to the human race that the Creator, His Messengers and countless spiritual beings do exist in His Kingdom.

However, that was not to be. The initial attempts in 1994 undertaken with only a genuine desire to advance the Truth met with adverse reaction from all, even childhood friends. To all of them it was an outrageous assertion and the work of evil spirits. The strongest opposition came from 'senior' Sahaja Yogis who denounced it outright. The chorus of negativity kept on swelling like mighty tidal waves, cresting, and crashing down relentlessly to subdue and silence the Truth. In the end the whole family became spiritual outcasts for daring to utter a Truth so radical that even the most enlightened Sahaja Yogi rejected it. They were the first heretics at the Dawn of the New Millennium, ridiculed by each and every soul to whom the father spoke.


We send not the angels down except for just cause:
If they came (to the ungodly), behold, no respite would they have!
We have, without doubt, sent down the Message;
And We will assuredly guard it (from corruption.)
We did send messengers before thee amongst the religious sects of old:
But never came a messenger to them but they mocked him.
Even so do We let it creep into the hearts of the sinners —
That they should not believe in the (Message);

surah 15: 8-13 Al Hijr
A. Yusuf Ali, The Holy Qur'an, 1989. 

Kash’s mother was the most affected and just wanted no one be told of her son’s experiences anymore. She began to insist that whatever the Great Divine Feminine was revealing were solely for the family to realize and attain spiritual release. It was not to be told to anyone else, not even the devotees of the Great Adi Shakti. Even Kash  told his father that no one was believing anything he (father) was talking, adding that they were "just pretending to listen." He advised that it was better to just keep quiet as no one was the least interested in knowing what he had to tell them.

However, his father felt otherwise. Such priceless Knowledge could never be just for his own selfish use but for the benefit of the entire Human Family.

Unknown to the family, the very Truth that Kash witnessed was so explosive that the Qur’an prophesied 1,400 years ago it will rock the whole world during the Great Announcement of Qiyamah (surah 78:1-5 An-Naba)! That was precisely what was happening: Even Sahaja Yogis, who knew and believed that the Resurrection was taking place, refused to believe what they were hearing. It did not matter even if revealed by the Great Adi Shakti in their own Sahasraras, and on whom they were meditating daily. This eruption of Truth was just too astounding and far-fetched even for the very messengers of the Great News of the Resurrection! As far as they were concerned Kash was 'possessed by evil spirits.'

But then:

  • How was it possible for Kash, just meditating in Montreal, Canada, to identify that Shri Antarmukha-samaradhya Shri Nirmala Devi is the One in his Thousand Petal Lotus. The Ruh of Allah was not the 70-year-old corporeal form that all humans were seeing on Earth, but was the internal, eternal, extremely beautiful 30-35 year-old Shri Lalita Devi?

  • How was it possible for him to irrefutably confirm that whatever Shri Nitya-yauvana Shri Nirmala Devi was telling humans was the Truth, though he never talked to Her physical form as Shri Mataji Nirmala Devi even once?

  • How was it possible for him to describe in great detail and accuracy the Kingdom of God and their Heavenly Hosts, something absolutely beyond even the most enlightened dalai lama, pope or ayatollah?


The followers of Muhammad are extolled to revere Angels. The Koran addresses their duties holy angels: "The existence of Angels and their purity are absolutely required to be believed in the Koran: and he is reckoned an infidel who denies there are such beings, or hates any of them."

Though we rarely see Angels, if at all, everyone experiences their effects. They are invisible spirits of sheer intelligence and will. . . .

God ministers to His Creatures through angels, through the Prophets (with the help of angels), and through holy men and women (with the help of angels.) Angels are available to guard and guide our body, mind, and spirit. They bring the very power of God to our personal world. He has assigned them to us that we may attain union with God. Through Angel Power God returns His children to the Garden of Paradise.


Janice T. Connel, Angel Power

On Earth humans were saying that "no answer can be found to the mystery, for humans have created it and no suprahuman or supernatural answer exists." This centuries-old dilemma that had allowed religious regimes to conjecture contradicting dogma and bitterly divide humans along religious lines could now be solved.

Kash’s father knew that such an unprecedented opportunity for all humanity to examine and validate the Truth of God Almighty might not come again. In his mind he was convinced that he had to perform his duty even if everybody — his parents, friends, relatives, and fellow Sahaja Yogis — ridiculed, criticized, or ostracized him. 

Kash’s father became resolute. He reiterated that he would announce this Divine World of Reality (Lahut), given the vast weight of unquestionable evidence, no matter how ridiculous others thought of his claims. It was imperative that he did so and allow the entire human race and history to judge him, and not a few skeptical individuals. He knew that millions were waiting for the first glimmer of Light that the dawning of the Age of Aquarius had predicted to bring, a Golden Age where "no one is ruled or ruler, where no promise of Heaven offers us false compensation for our present pain, but where we tend together the earth's living, fruitful flesh." 

These Revelations, precisely for those who rejected the authoritarian and suppressive religious institutions, would free humanity from their suffocating custody and allow every individual to seek their spiritual union with the Supreme Spirit within, transforming them in the process into the new race destined to heal all nations. These Truths had to be told no matter what the consequences. It was a moral duty that any conscientious human would most willingly do.


Guardians: most Commentators understand this to mean guardian angels. The idea of guardianship is expressed in a general term. Allah watches over us and guards us, and provides all kinds of agencies, material, moral, and spiritual, to help our growth and development, keeping us from harm, and bring us nearer to our Destiny.

Angels
: the word used is rusul, the Sent Ones — the same word as for human Messengers sent by Allah to teach mankind.


Abdullah Yusuf Ali, The Holy Qur'an, Amana Corporation, 1989, p. 310.

In the end, after weeks of turmoil in the family, there was a compromise. The father agreed to maintain silence and let things take their course, as required by his spouse, provided he be allowed to question Kash in detail and record all of his mystical experiences. He would then wait for the appropriate time to release them for the benefit of others.

On April 2, 1995, at 11:20 a.m. Kash was told to obtain permission from the Great Universal Mother to reveal the Truth. He meditated and emerged through the clouds into the Land of Eternal Life. The Primal Light shone ever so brightly from above 
as the Holy Spirit of God sat in Bliss and Joy. After bowing down and exchanging greetings, he asked the Great Mater Purissima (Purest Mother) if She would grant permission. She gave Her blessings with a reminder that this intuitive Knowledge was especially for Her devotees.

It was at this point that the actual compilation of his spiritual journeys began in earnest. Kash was questioned practically every day, sometimes repeatedly, to clarify and confirm what he saw, heard, thought, spoke, smelled, touched, and tasted. Often questions were asked suddenly when he least expected just to get him off-guard to confirm consistency. All answers came with a calm and nonchalant attitude, without contradiction.

However, the sustained negativity and adverse reactions from almost all quarters regarding the experiences of Kash experiences began to take its toll.

After a few months of writing notes his father began deleting evidence of Kash and Lalita's spiritual identities. To officially reveal to the Sahaja Yogis that they were indeed angels would only make matters worse. This assertion would be regarded as blatant self-advertisement, a shameless bid for grandiose fame. It would be better for everyone if such a preposterous claim be withdrawn. Kash's spiritual abilities could be ascribed to him being just a jivanmukti, a liberated soul. Lalita could be briefly mentioned as the fulfillment of the Adi Shakti's promise to Kash that his wish for a sister would come true.

But that was not to be as almost immediately the Great Adi Shakti intervened.

On December 27, 1995, at about 4:30 p.m. preparations to perform Christmas Puja for Jesus Christ were in progress. The house was dusted, vacuumed and mopped; the altar decorated with flowers and offerings; eating utensils washed, dried and arranged; and food for Sahaja Yogis laid on the dining table. Christmas carols uplifted the spirits, and made work light.


He doth send down His angels with the inspiration of His Command, to such of His servants as He pleaseth, (saying):
"Warn (Man) that there is no god but I: So do your duty unto Me."

surah 16: 2 Al Nahl (Bees)
Abdullah Yusuf Ali, The Holy Qur'an

Kash was alone in his room, deep in meditation. 

Then Shri Adhiparasakthi Shri Nirmala Devi spoke to him for about 10 minutes, inquiring about his state of mind. Kash told the Great Primordial Guru that he was still not ready spiritually (and till date he has given no indication that he is). She replied that this was normal and he should lead an ordinary life and that this book was not to be published yet (and which still remains unpublished).

The Great Devi then revealed to him that there were five special occasions —  among more than a thousand encounters with Her in his Sahasrara — that She appeared in Her actual form of Adi Shakti and not as Mahamaya (Illusion.) By this She meant that Kash witnessed Her purest Being only five times, a Reality beyond the Sahasrara! Few people understand the immensity of this Revelation. We can only say that it is extremely difficult to see even Her illusionary form in the Sahasrara, not beyond.

But why did She have to stoop to allow Her genuine Self to be revealed to a mere child? Maybe She had to for the sake of Truth as there will always be humans who will argue and doubt Revealed Truth. She had foreseen various obstacles and provided to overcome them, leaving no room for future doubt or dissent. (But we believe She did so upon witnessing Kash's father trying to delete specific evidence vital to validate the Truth about angels, an absolute requirement to validate the prophecies and revelations of the Qur'an and Bible.)

The five occasions were:

  • The very first day he saw Her. This was on the Diwali of November 1993, the Hindu New Year.

  • The day he came to request from Her to bestow the boon of a baby sister. This day is unknown as Kash had done it on his own initiative, without informing anyone.

  • April 3, 1994, the day She revealed that his just hours-old baby sister Lalita, born on the Christian holy day of Easter Sunday (April 3, 1994), was an angel.

  • April 18, 1994, the day She revealed that Kash, born on the Muslim holy day of Id Al-Adha (October 19, 1980), was an angel.

  • July 26, 1995, the day She revealed that the Miracle Photograph was genuine and implied that all the Messengers of God Almighty had given enough evidence necessary for the Believers on Earth to surrender to the Truth. She then ended Kash's mystical journeys into his own Sahasrara with these parting words: "WE HAVE DONE OUR JOB HERE."


It is with the above Revelations that we have the courage to lay before humankind the Truth for all to examine, in relation to all that has been posted on this website so far. Wa maa alainaa illa al-balaagh — there is nothing upon us except to convey (the truth).


We have indeed revealed this (Message) in the Night of Power:
[6217]
And what will explain to thee what the Night of Power is?
The Night of Power is better than a thousand Months.
Therein come down
the angels, and the Spirit by Allah's permission,
On every errand: Peace! This until the rise of morn!

surah 97:1-5 Al Qadr (The Night of Power and Honour)
(Abdullah Yusuf Ali, The Holy Qur’an, Amana Corporation, 1989.)


"6217. . . . It is best to take this in the mystic sense, which also accords with verse 3 below, which says that the Night of Power is better than a thousand Nights. It transcends Time: for it is Allah's Power dispelling the Darkness of Ignorance, by His Revelation, in every kind of affair.

The subject matter is the mystic Night of Power (or Honour), in which Revelation comes down to a benighted world — it may be to the wonderful Cosmos of an individual — and transforms the conflict of wrongdoing into Peace and Harmony — through the agency of the angelic host, representing the spiritual powers of the Mercy of Allah."

Abdullah Yusuf Ali, The Holy Qur'an
(Abdullah Yusuf Ali, The Holy Qur’an, Amana Corporation, 1989.)


Lo! We revealed it on the Night of Predestination. 
Ah, what will convey unto thee what the Night of Power is?
The Night of Power is better than a thousand months.
The angels
and the Spirit descend therein, by the permission of their Lord
With all decrees. (The night is) Peace until the rising of the dawn.

surah 97:1-5 (Al Qadr)
(Mohammed Pickthall, The Meaning of the Glorious Quran, U. of Michigan.)

Note:
Please discern again the subtle portrayal and synthesis of the three great religions of Hinduism, Christianity and Islam, as is also evident also in the Miracle Photograph, and all Her Revelations in general.

O ye that believe! Celebrate the praises of Allah, and do so often;
And glorify Him morning and evening.
He it is Who sends blessings on you, as do His angels,
That He may bring you out from the depths of Darkness into Light:
And He is full of Mercy to His Believers.

surah 33: 43 Al Ahzabi (The Confederates)
(Abdullah Yusuf Ali, The Holy Qur'an, Amana Corporation, 1989.)


A questioner asked about a Penalty to befall
[5675]
The Unbelievers, the which there is none to ward off —
(A Penalty) from Allah, Lord of the Ways of Ascent.
[5676]
The angels and the Spirit
[5677] ascend unto Him in a Day,
The measure whereof is (as) fifty thousand years.

surah 70: 1-4 Al Ma'arij (The Ways of Ascent)

"5675. Any one might ask, When will Judgement come? That question usually implies doubt. The answer is: the mystery of Time is beyond man's comprehension . . . we are reminded of another title of Allah, "Lord of the Ways of Ascent"; which means that though He sits high on His Throne of Glory, He is not inaccessible, but His infinite Mercy has provided ways of ascent to Him; see next note.

5676. Ma'arij: stairways, ways of ascent . . . Here there is a profound spiritual meaning. Can we reach up to Allah Most High? In His infinite grace He gives that privilege to angels and spiritual beings, man being such in his highest aspect. But the way is not easy, nor can it be traveled in a day.

5677. Ruh: "The Spirit," Cf. 78:38, "the Spirit and the angels"; and 97:4, "the angels and the Spirit." In 16:2, we have translated Ruh by "inspiration." Some commentators understand the angel Gabriel by "the Spirit." But I think a more general meaning is possible."

Praise be to Allah
The Cherisher and Sustainer of the Worlds;
Most Gracious, Most Merciful: Master of the Day of Judgement.
Thine do we worship, and Thine aid we seek.
Show us the straight way, the way of those on whom Thou hast bestowed Thy Grace,

surah 1:1-7 Al Fatihah (The Opening)

 


The Messenger (Muhammad ) believes in what has been sent down to him from his Lord, and (so do) the believers. Each one believes in Allâh, His Angels, His Books, and His Messengers. They say, "We make no distinction between one another of His Messengers" - and they say, "We hear, and we obey. (We seek) Your Forgiveness, our Lord, and to You is the return (of all)."

                                                                           

surah 2:285

 


Say (O Muslims), "We believe in Allâh and that which has been sent down to us and that which has been sent down to Ibrâhim (Abraham), Ismâ'il (Ishmael), Ishâque (Isaac), Ya'qûb (Jacob), and to Al-Asbât [the twelve sons of Ya'qûb (Jacob)], and that which has been given to Mûsa (Moses) and 'Iesa (Jesus), and that which has been given to the Prophets from their Lord. We make no distinction between any of them, and to Him we have submitted (in Islâm)."

                                                                           

surah 2:136

 


And those who believe in Allâh and His Messengers and make no distinction between any of them (Messengers), We shall give them their rewards, and Allâh is Ever Oft­Forgiving, Most Merciful.

                                                                           

surah 4:152

 


By the token of time (through the Ages), man is in a state of loss, except those who truly believe, act correctly and act together in mutual counsel of Truth and patience' (Al — Asr 103).

The Islamic calendar does not start with the birth or the death of a person, but with an event, the migration of believers from oppression to freedom, freedom to practice 'submission to the will of God' in order to attain peace within and around. The advent of Prophet Jesus (Alaih Salaam-peace be upon him) was similarly an epochal event in the history of humankind. The Qur'an calls him a 'sign', a 'mercy', a 'witness' and an 'example'. He is Messiah, Messenger, Prophet, Servant, Word and Spirit of God. The calendar may not be exactly precise but the millennium can serve as an important point of reference in the Divine scheme of message and revelation. And take us into the future.

The future is very dear to us. Even if it has not arrived yet, the future is already in our thoughts. On the other hand, the past is a collection of good and bad experience, its use is in shaping the present and shaping the future. . . .

Muhammad, (SAWS — Allah's Mercy & Peace be upon him), task, defined in the Qur'an, is to be 'a giver of the glad tidings as well as a warner'. The Our'an reminds us of nations who were destroyed — because they had rebelled and disobeyed — and gives us a glimpse of the life in hereafter of people who do good and who love and obey God. In the scheme of divine revelation, the past, present and the future are one continuum. . . .

In Islam service to humanity is a function of their duty towards God. The Qur'an says: 'And from among you there must be a society, community or party that should invite people to all that is good and enjoin the doing of all that is right and forbid the doing of all that is wrong.' (Ali-'Imran, 3:104)

In inviting people to goodness and forbidding from the wrong, Muslims will need to join hands with other believers who share a great deal of these values about good and bad and about right and wrong. The conflicts that we witness today are not conflicts between religions, they are conflicts of irreligion. Therefore, those who believe in God and know the right from the wrong — Jews, Christians and Muslims, especially — can join together to build a not a perfect, but an incomparably better world than we live in today: a society of neighbors who are just and fair to each other.

The second half of the millennium has seen two world and several local wars. It saw nuclear incineration of entire populations. It invented a savage new crime against humanity: ethnic cleansing. The new millennium ought to be different. Let the people of faith and goodwill work together to turn it into a thousand years of peace and prosperity, love and mutuality.

Prophet Muhammad, (SAWS — Allah's Mercy & Peace be upon him), has foretold that 'after many years of bad times, an era will come when humanity will re-commit itself to God and there will be peace and prosperity in the whole world.'

On the threshold of the next millennium, Muslims have a duty towards the world and towards the fellow humans. It is their unilateral obligation to invite others, and to work together in building a better and a peaceful world: a world which is free from oppression and exploitation, where rights are a reality and where justice prevails over hypocrisy.

Yogic insights into Islam (PDF format)

There are a number of legends about the early life of Mohammed, founder of the religion of Islam.

It is said that just before Mohammed’s birth his father, Abdula, dreamt of his unborn son. He saw growing from his child’s back a tree, which climbed upward, and reaching its full height emitted a light that spread around the world.

Most Muslims interpret the dream and its imagery symbolically. The tree would of course represent the religion of Islam, supported by Mohammed. The light is the wisdom of his teachings that have truly been globally disseminated.

However we also know that the tree in Mohammed’s back could be the ‘tree of life’ and is a common symbol in Middle Eastern and Islamic culture. Carl Jung, after years of studying the language of the unconscious, interpreted the tree of life as one of the universal unconscious’s synonyms for the Kundalini.

The Kundalini, said Jung, is a spiritual energy best documented by (but by no means exclusive to) the yogis of India. It should not at all be surprising, should we take an open-minded and closer look at Islam, that as with the other great religions, we find a deeper, more mystical and universal message: that of self realisation and the mechanism by which it occurs — Kundalini awakening. Every culture and religion has had individuals who have achieved a living, spontaneous, direct experience of their religion. A dynamic, suprahuman awareness that went beyond dogma and blind faith. The Gnostics of Christianity, the Yogis of Hinduism, the Fang-Shi of Tao and the Sufis of Islam all achieved these states and each have spoken of experiences that, despite differences of appearance, are strikingly similar in content.

Let us then look at Abdula’s dream from a yogic perspective. We can suggest that he actually saw the uniquely powerful Kundalini of his son. The ascent of Mohammed’s Kundalini was not simply of individual importance to Mohammed but had global, even cosmic significance. For the light, the divine energy of Mohammed’s Kundalini, was about to affect a spiritual and cultural revolution in Arabia. Mohammed was the vessel through which the universal unconscious, or ‘divine’, or ‘God’ was about to act.

As a child and young man Mohammed showed few signs of his prophetic destiny. He was well known for his moral integrity and good character but it was not until his forties that he became aware of his true purpose. Through a series of transformative experiences Mohammed was prepared for his divine role. These experiences culminated in the amazing Meraj (or ‘Ascent’).

The experience of the Meraj, like the rising kundalini that Abdula had seen, would not only revolutionise Mohammed’s awareness but send out shock waves which resonated in the unconscious of all Arabians and later, all the world.

Through the Meraj Mohammed realized the need for the establishment of a new culture. He was to establish a creed that went beyond the petty tribal boundaries, blood feuds and violent practices prevalent at the time. To go beyond such ingrained behaviour patterns Mohammed drew upon an awareness of superhuman proportions. He transcended the limitations of the human mind and tapped into the universal intelligence. His vision then became universal: to unite the peoples of Arabia under a system of morality, justice and compassion. A system that would serve as the foundation for one of the greatest civilisations in recorded history.

The Meraj gave Mohammed the confidence, wisdom and superhuman energy to attempt such a revolution.

In this visionary experience the angel Gabriel escorted Mohammed from his humble quarters to the Dome of the Rock in Jerusalem. There the Buraq, a fantastic steed with the body of a horse, the head of a woman and the wings of a bird, greeted him. She shone with dazzling white brightness and her tremendous strength bore Mohammed up into the cosmos through the various divine dimensions.

Gabriel escorted Mohammed on the Buraq through the seven heavens. Each heaven had its own guardian angel and resident prophet who ruled the dimension in accordance with God’s laws. Mohammed bowed to guardian angels who determined his readiness to enter into their heaven, and then Mohammed respectfully paid homage to the reigning prophet. The prophet in turn blessed Mohammed and ushered him on to the next heaven and so on.

At the sixth heaven Gabriel brought Mohammed to the verge of the seventh. The archangel said that he himself could go no further. This, the seventh heaven, was the last frontier between god and man and Mohammed was ushered into the place described as the abode of God almighty.

Their Mohammed saw a beautiful, radiant tree with wondrous multicolored leaves. It was here that he communed with God and learned of his true purpose.

This beautiful and inspiring vision has motivated millions of Muslims for more than a thousand years. Its significance becomes even more universal when we examine it from the perspective of kundalini awakening, using the symbolic language of the universal unconscious.

The seven heavens through which Mohammed passed must of course correspond to the seven chakras that exist within the human body. Each chakra, say the yogis, is the abode of a special deity whose character embodies the chakra’s innate spiritual qualities. The human chakra system is a microcosm for the entire Eastern pantheon of gods, goddesses and heavenly beings. The prophets and angels that Mohammed encountered in each heaven could well have been these same inner deities that the yogis personally discovered through intense meditation.

The seventh heaven or chakra is the ‘Crown Chakra’ also termed Sahasrara. Yogis have described it as the most important of all the chakras for it represents the ultimate level of mystic awareness.

Like all the chakras it has a specific number of petals (in this case more than a thousand)|. Each chakra not only has a specific number of petals but also a specific radiant colour. The sahasrara’s appearance however is said to contain all the colours of the rainbow for it contains within it all the aspects (and hence the colours) of the six other chakras below it.

Such ancient yogic descriptions of the sahasrara could logically correspond to the resplendent and multicoloured sidrat which Mohammed encountered in the 7th heaven.

The kundalini is a feminine energy often described as an ‘inner goddess’ or ‘mother energy’. Her ascent from the sacrum, through the chakras located in the spinal cord, is the process of self-realisation. When the kundalini arrives in the crown chakra (sahasrara) the seeker experiences the complete transformation of awareness. One is taken beyond the limits of the human mind into the mystical states of meditation described by sufis and yogis alike.

In fact C.G. Jung described the kundalini as the ‘divine feminine ‘or ‘God the mother’. Notably, Mohammed’s vehicle for his own ascent through the heavenly dimensions was the lady-faced, dazzling buraq. The buraq could well be a feminine, Arabic synonym for kundalini.

In conclusion Mohammed’s ascent through the seven heavens was, in fact, the ascent of the kundalini, taking his consciousness with it, to divine union with the god almighty.

It is no coincidence that the entire Meraj is described to have started and finished in an incredibly short period of time: While sitting in his room Mohammad heard someone grasp the door handle and the sound of the latch clicking was the last thing he heard before Gabriel’s appearance and the duo’s departure on their spiritual journey. Mohammed’s return to mundane experience restarts with the next few clicks of the same latch movement. In other words the entire experience occurred in a sort of ‘no-time’. This is not an unusual proposition since meditation is a state of awareness created by the ascent of the kundalini through the chakras. As it pierces the sixth chakra (‘third eye’ or Agnya) and seventh, it takes the meditator into the state of ‘thoughtless awareness’ (Nirvichara Samadhi) and beyond. This is a simple state where one experiences true mental silence, beyond the normal mental awareness of past/future, cause/effect .

The mind, as this editorial column has often discussed before, can only deal with the dimension of past and future, cause and effect, thought and memory. However, the state of meditation begins in the ‘spaces between the thoughts’. This is the numinous dimension where there is no passage of time but only a singular, silent, eternal, thought-free and joyful experience.

It was from this dimension of awareness that Mohammed perceived the divine vision of a universal culture and spirituality. Through his meditative vision he learned of humanity’s higher potential thus his mystic perception of the universal spirit and its presence within each of us became the template upon which he sought to fashion a new society whose foundations lay not in issues of common material interest but in the unique awareness of Self-Realization. Mohammed was, in fact, laying the first building blocks for the emergence of a spiritual civilization that may only now come into fruition.

Experience of the divine or sacred

The goal of mysticism is "ghostly," a state or condition in which the soul is "one'd with God," according to the Western medieval work The Cloud of Unknowing. This "one-ing" is because all men, according to mystics, are called to their origin. Self-realization is basically one in intent with the injunctions of the Greek Mysteries: "Know thyself." This knowing, union, or communion with the divine and the sacred is of the essence of the ascent of man. As the only answer to the problem of identity, mystics look upon it as the final end, the summum bonum. At the journey's end waits the knowledge by identity. The direct, intuitive perception is more akin to revealed religion than to science and philosophy, though it is of itself a science, and philosophies spring from as well as lead to it.

I wanted to know the best of the life of one who holds today an undisputed sway over the hearts of millions of mankind.... I became more than ever convinced that it was not the sword that won a place for Islam in those days in the scheme of life. It was the rigid simplicity, the utter self-effacement of the Prophet, the scrupulous regard for pledges, his intense devotion to his friends and followers, his intrepidity, his fearlessness, his absolute trust in God and in his own mission. These and not the sword carried everything before them and surmounted every obstacle. When I closed the second volume (of the Prophet's biography), I was sorry there was not more for me to read of that great life."Mahatma Gandhi (statement published in Young India, 1924.)

"His readiness to undergo persecution for his beliefs, the high moral character of the men who believed in him and looked up to him as a leader, and the greatness of his ultimate achievement — all argue his fundamental integrity. To suppose Muhammad an impostor raises more problems that it solves. Moreover, none of the great figures of history is so poorly appreciated in the West as Muhammad.... Thus, not merely must we credit Muhammad with essential honesty and integrity of purpose, if we are to understand him at all; if we are to correct the errors we have inherited from the past, we must not forget the conclusive proof is a much stricter requirement than a show of plausibility, and in a matter such as this only to be attained with difficulty.

Experience of the universal

The nature of the goal, however, introduces a paradox. Like every other aim and activity, mysticism operates in a historical context. Yet, sooner or later, it also tends to reveal a timeless stance. The mystic is both in and out of time. The eternal now is a kind of release from the temporal order. Such a release may lead to a shift from the local to the universal, to a growing sense of unity of all experience. Though not a declared or conscious aim, this result could be looked upon as a not unworthy goal as well as a pragmatic standard.

To cure man of a provincialism of the spirit, from which more people suffer than either know or admit it, is one of the goals of a mysticism that has come of age. The true mystic is a cosmopolitan. In man's many-sided growth toward the real, a sane and mature mysticism leads to an ecumenical insight and obligation. Local colour, particulars, and uniqueness will not cease, but, in the perspective of the future and of wholeness, the universal alone will have survival value.

He was one of those happy few who have attained the supreme joy of making one great truth their very life spring. He was the messenger of One God, and never to his life's end did he forget who he was or the message which was the marrow of his being. He brought his tidings to his people with a grand dignity sprung from the consciousness of his high office, together with a most sweet humility.

Experience of oneness with people

The apotheosized (divinized) field of consciousness is mysticism's ultimate goal and gift to the life of an evolving humanity. It alone is fitted to mediate between the anguish of existence and the serenity of essence, between samsara ("cycle of birth and rebirth") and Nirvana (the State of Bliss). According to an American Roman Catholic mystic, Thomas Merton, "The spiritual anguish of man has no cure but mysticism."

Though the mystic goal may seem to be tied to a transcendent reality, this does not mean a sundering of all relations and responsibilities. On the contrary, it is the guarantee of a set of altered relationships and a rehabilitation of what may be called the higher reason. Intuitions that sink into private fancy and morbidity have a short life to live. As for the mystic's "yonder," it is not spatially or posthumously remote but rather refers to a different order of reality and consciousness. The healthier forms of mysticism do not abjure action or the claims of love. It is an ancient maxim that one becomes what one loves. This is how the psychic birth repeats itself in the mystic soul, as stated, for example, by Meister Eckehart, a medieval German mystic: "It is more worthy of God that he should be born spiritually of every virgin, or of every good soul, than that he should have been born physically of Mary."

The mystic is not always amorous of the beyond, leaving an unredeemed world to its own ways. Not escape but, rather, victory is mysticism's inner urge and promise. The more sober among the mystics do not merely withdraw; they also return to the base and attempt the ancient alchemy, the transformation of men. A solitary salvation does not satisfy either head or heart.

My problem to write this monograph is easier, because we are not generally fed now on that (distorted) kind of history and much time need not be spent on pointing out our misrepresentations of Islam. The theory of Islam and sword, for instance, is not heard now in any quarter worth the name. The principle of Islam that "there is no compulsion in religion" is well known.

Mystical relationship between man and the sacred

Nature of the relationship

Within man is the soul of the holy, said Ralph Waldo Emerson in the 19th century. This is true of society, too. As the French sociologist Émile Durkheim saw it, the sacred is but a personified society. Mysticism, one might say, is the art and science of the holy. Theologically, it is but "the experience of the Holy Ghost, . . . the realization of the Spirit of Holiness." As the opposite of the profane and as a distinct and irreducible quality of the religious and mystical life, the sacred has always existed. It is indeed a mark of the real, and, when the German theologian Rudolf Otto isolated the sacred as a "quite distinctive category" of mystical apprehension, he had no lack of evidence. The emphasis, however, was not unanimously accepted. Some, like Inge, thought the sacred might as well be elicited from such ultimate values as "truth, goodness, and beauty."

According to the respective world view, the interpretation or emphasis varies, but the universal core remains unaffected. The sacred is in its own way a coherent system, though not rational. The dualists no less than the theists insist on the unqualified and irreducible "otherness," the unbridgeable gulf, even when one speaks of union or communion. It is the distance that preserves the sacred.

Christian mystics, who often speak of "union with God," generally do not imply identity with the divine, since this might lead to heresy. The 16th-century Spanish mystic St. Teresa of Avila could write with impunity: "It is plain enough what unity is — two distinct things becoming one." But most others could not be so plain and had to use special strategy to cover up traces of possible deviation from what was permissible. Even if there had been a semblance of interpenetration between man and the divine, there could be no substantial identity. "Each of these," wrote the medieval Dutch mystic Jan van Ruysbroeck, "keeps its own nature. There is here a great distinction, for the creature never becomes God, nor does God ever become the creature." The same doctrine is preached in the Middle Ages by the mystic Heinrich Suso:

In this merging of itself in God the spirit passes away and yet not wholly; for it receives indeed some attribute of God, but it does not become God by nature. It is still something that has been created out of nothing, and continues to be this everlastingly.

Shri Mataji Nirmala Devi attended this recent Sahaja Yoga public program held at Albert Hall, London, UK. Below is a quote from the Sahaja Yoga News magazine:

“Then She asked if anyone wanted to ask questions. A stream of questions began and again Sri Mataji turned many of them into a joke and got everyone laughing. It felt very luxurious as though we had all the time in the world, that everyone was going to be completely satisfied.

Somebody asked Her about Angels and She said that Angels are like the flowers. They are beautiful. You cannot see them, but they are there sometimes working through a human form to help you in many ways.” ”
