Questions from inquiring seekers and answers given sincerely without fear
Actually you should have posed the same questions to senior SYs at your Vancouver collective, co-coordinators, leaders and WCASY. Since they have been brainstorming for the last two decades or so all the time, energy and money spent should have made latecomers like us marvel at the depth and breadth of their knowledge. i mean all such answers were covered and made available by Shri Mataji over the decades. (Are we here not giving answers to all sorts of enquiries that should have topped the WCASY blueprint to spread Shri Mataji's soothing, uniting, elevating spiritual message of Sahaja Yoga?)
But this task of compiling answers to frequently asked questions was supposed to have commenced in the early 80s when Shri Mataji was telling SYs/leaders to boldly proclaim the truth. There was supposed to be a huge database by now made available to new seekers so that answers to the wide variety of questions be available instantly. It takes little common sense to foresee this vital need. Not only that but surely over the years the SY elite must have been confronted by similar intelligent enquiries from educated, sophisticated seekers. How come the SY leadership is still not aware despite countless brainstorming sessions year after year, decade after decade?
However, Kyyan, we are trying to build this essential database that will eventually be categorized ......... and "Comforter" will definitely be topping the list. So it will be easier in future to answer such questions by having data on specific issues made available at your fingertips. You should know that this is a huge task and, with limited manpower, will take quite some time ......... probably years.
This is because down through the ages, the word "religion" has undergone a radical metamorphosis. Its origin was derived from the Latin prefix "re," suffix "ligio," meaning "to re-link the self or personality with its source, or that which caused it to be." The ideas propounded at the moment of birth of each religion were centered on this basic definition. However, over the course of time, the word "religion" has generally come to represent multiple splintered systems of belief, each with their own set of dogmas and rituals, each arrogantly believing that theirs is the only one founded on truth and sanctioned by God. "Religion" has therefore come to represent sectarian prejudice, superstitious ignorance, and pious superiority. The modus operandi of this site is to challenge the religious elite regarding their outdated, incomprehensible and false teachings about the Kingdom of God, Last Judgment and Resurrection, and present these critical salvation issues in far greater depth and detail as revealed by the great avatar Shri Mataji Nirmala Devi.
So Kyyan, you have to understand what you are also up against. The questions and doubts posed by those you have approached find their roots in millennia of religious disinformation, misunderstanding, untruth, false teachings, baseless conditionings and bias. Providing answers is a formidable task requiring a large database of knowledge that seekers can access, read and digest over weeks/months/years in privacy and relaxed pace. It is far better and effective that they be directed to read the sites/forum archives and form their own informed conclusion rather than you go around telling them in bits and pieces. After all, that is how you were convinced of the Truth.
Even if they decline the message will remain buried for a long time in their consciousness, a dormant mental seed that will forever have the potential of future germination. Any event, transformation or tragedy over the years may trigger this germination - religious maturity, spiritual knowledge, mystical experience, sickness, divorce, disillusionment, declining morality, drug culture, global wars, ecological disasters, epidemics, etc. Thus those seeking Self- realization under such tragic circumstances will have deep faith and conviction that Shri Mataji was indeed telling the truth all along:
"The world is in turmoil today. People everywhere are anxious about the future. What they need is the soothing, uniting, elevating spiritual message of Sahaja Yoga. They have to be enabled to experience "Self Realization" and thereby attain inner transformation. Only then will they begin to regard all human beings as members of one global family regardless of their race, culture etc. Only then will they discard hatred and violence. Sahaja Yogis have a momentous responsibility at this crucial time in human history. They have to spread Sahaja Yoga in all the parts of the world by written and spoken word.... For this purpose, a well thought out approach is required."
The way things are going in the world today the worst is yet to come. It is imperative that we have the soothing, uniting, elevating spiritual message of Sahaja Yoga in all transparency and detail, and a well thought out approach too to enable Self-realization. We are definitely on track to complete it as per Shri Mataji's instructions and vision by February 21, 2013. So please help in any way possible in this collective and momentous responsibility at this crucial time in human history.
By the way Kyyan, if you google "Christian Comforter" you may get an answer. You should not google "Comforter" as it will bring up pillows, comforters, etc. However, if you google "Comforter" at the www.adishakti.org site you will have more than 200 entries.
So seekers can find the relevant answers to a wide range of enquiries on their own. Thus rather than we personally explain on a one on one basis with our limited and fragmented knowldge we should just tell seekers to google the site for answers. There is no limit to the number of seekers we can reach this way. In fact maximum exposure to a vast database of answers and articles explaining Her teachings and backing with the Holy Scriptures is by co-incidence just what Shri Mataji had in mind way back in 1985 too.
"You should, when you say too much at least little bit will go into their heads. So you have to say too much. Say what you want. There should be exuberance, exuberance of your ideas, so that something goes into their heads. They know that you're sincere, you're saying it sincerely, you cannot contain within yourself. Emphatically you have to say these. That's what everybody did. All those who were great incarnations said it with such concern, with such force. In the same way, you have to say without any fear." (Shri Mataji)
All we need to do now is constantly improve the quality, quantity and range of the answers with our contributions. You never know how Shri Mataji will specifically use you as Her instrument so that others will also be inspired to speak the truth without any fear, just as the great incarnations had done. But you have to first stand up and then remain firmly grounded against all negativity and obstacles, probably for the rest of your life. This is the first time since Shri Mataji opened the Sahasrara May 5, 1970 that all seekers are treated "like in the family, (where) you go, you get everything from the fridge and give it to them, they'll be very happy to take it whatever you like". It has taken Her three decades to finally find a way for Her conscientious and concerned devotees to finally say what they have found out in a big way. These precious sparks of freedom must now be collectively protected against the prevailing winds of negativity till they are able to start the prairie fire that will alert humanity to pause and take notice of Shri Mataji's incarnation and Divine Message. Sooner or later we will be able to reach the critical mass required to trigger this Collective Consciousness. warmest regards,
