On the 24th of November, 2014, in Gurdaspur, a city in the state of Punjab, Mr Tarseem Singh and Mrs Asha Didi of Messiah Foundation India had the delightful opportunity to meet a Christian family, the Ramans family, who were given the message of Lord Ra Riaz Gohar Shahi through one of our advocates.
Mr Raman and his wife were extremely pleased to see our team. He explained,
'Previously, I was very ill with Kala-Pilia (Hepatitis-C) and admitted at the hospital. The doctors didn't think I would get better. However, when I received the spiritual healing from the image of Lord Ra Riaz Gohar Shahi, my health really improved. I was out doing daily tasks the very next day!'
We also granted Mr Raman and his family the heart initiation of 'Ya Esa'. They were extremely happy and thankful towards our team!

Recently, Messiah Foundation Canada visited Calgary to participate in the Body Soul and Spirit Expo, where they offered aspirants free spiritual healing and Invocation of the Heart. Whilst in Calgary, our team also spent some time leafleting in the downtown area.
The response at the expo was extraordinary! Approximately 2300 people attended the expo and a majority of those given our message took great interest in it. The blessings of Lord Ra Riaz Gohar Shahi at this expo were undeniable: many of those who obtained Invocation of the Heart from our members experienced wonderful miracles.
A woman who had taken Invocation of the Heart on the first day of the expo had an amazing experience. Mr Ikhlaq of Messiah Foundation Canada stated,
'She came back the next day to tell us what had happened with her. Her grandfather is a cancer patient and has been losing his memory. The night before, she began practising the invocation and decided to ask Lord Ra Riaz for help healing her grandfather. Soon after finishing her practice, she called her family to check up on her grandfather. They told her that for the past two hours, he had been feeling much better and had even regained his memory. She was ecstatic and eagerly brought her friends to the stall.'

'The Gods of modern men are the possessions and pleasures that dominate their lives.' - His Holiness Younus AlGohar
Today is Youm-e-Ghaibah, the Day of Occultation (Physical Disappearance). Thirteen years ago on the 27th of November His Divine Grace Lord Ra Riaz Gohar Shahi adopted Occultation and physically disappeared from the naked eye.

Divine Love is the only solution. You cannot fight hatred with hatred; hatred must be fought with love.
His Divine Grace Lord Ra Riaz Gohar Shahi is the Universal Spiritual Master, the Awaited Personality whose teachings have united all hearts.

We have seen the unlimited spiritual power and authority of the Lord and have grown in nearness to the Lord by virtue of spreading this message of love. Now we invite the entire humanity to recognise and investigate these Divine Signs so that none is deprived of the spiritual grace and bounty of the Lord, and so that all may recognise Him when He reappears to this world.

'I do not like to see empty hearts. Where I see an empty heart, I want to fill it with God.' - His Divine Eminence RA Gohar Shahi
From November 14-16, a team from Messiah Foundation Canada participated in the Body Soul and Spirit Expo in Edmonton, Alberta.

Overall, it was a wonderful expo! Messiah Foundation Canada will also be participating in the Calgary Body Soul and Spirit Expo from Nov 21-23.
His Holiness Younus AlGohar paints a full picture of the mankind's beginnings in this awe-inspiring speech. His Holiness discusses how God came to the decision to create Adam, 'The Eminent One', and what effects the creation of Adam had on pre-existing creation of God.
A summary of this speech:
Angels that objected to creation of yet another type of man were not ordinary Angels; rather, they were the inhabitants of the empyrean of God and their objection was directly linked to their own survival. God had created them for the purpose of glorifying Him and that was the only purpose of their being. When they learnt that God was planning to create Adam and that Adam would take up their task that of glorifying God, they felt threatened; hence they uttered their objection.
Not everyone from the progeny of Adam, The Eminent One, is greater than Angels; but those that are capable of glorifying God in a more pleasing way than their counterparts [are]. And those of mankind that do not know the mysterious art of pleasing God through the divinely desired fashion of glorifying God are engaged in mischief and bloodshed as feared by the Angels.
Dhikr (making mention) of God's name is the most favourite act of a human being in the eyes of God, for this fills God's heart with utter ecstasy and pleasure. It makes God feel drunkard and jubilant. Dhikr is a form of praise. It is not just beautiful to praise God and hasten His bounty to fall in your lap, but all human beings also inherit this nature from God and all humans love to be praised - even if it is fake.
In Jallianwala Bagh, a public garden in Amritsar in the Punjab state of India, our team from Kalki Avatar Foundation India propagated the message of Kalki Avatar Ra Gohar Shahi on the 6th of November, 2014.

'When all the souls begin to remember God in a human body, it becomes God's dwelling and God begins to call upon his servant in the heart.' - His Divine Eminence RA Gohar Shahi
The following is a transcript of His Holiness Younus AlGohar speech (video above).
Christians believe Jesus is Son of God and Muslims believe that God doesn't have sons and daughters [and that] it is too blasphemous an idea to attribute daughters and sons to God. Christians believe that Jesus is Son of God; however, they do not know how he is Son of God. The fact that Mother Mary was not touched by a man and the birth of Jesus was an immaculate birth - does it lead to this supposition that God is the father? Is this how Jesus is Son of God? When you say that Mother Mary was not touched by a man and the birth of Jesus was immaculate, you are just talking about the body. Do Christians believe the body of Jesus is Son of God?
I will explain to you how Jesus is Son of God, but not the way that they understand. Before I explain to you how Jesus is Son of god, let me share with you His Divine Eminence Gohar Shahi's conversation with a Christian.
In Pakistan, a Christian came to see HDE. He said, 'We are a greater nation than all else.' HDE said, 'Okay, how?' And he said, 'Because Jesus didn't have a father.' Instantly, HDE said, 'In that case, Prophet Adam is greater than Jesus because he didn't have a mother also.' Then HDE said, 'This is not how Jesus is greater. Let me tell you what it is that makes Jesus greater than the rest.'
You see, the body of Jesus is not Son of God. Before Jesus, there have been many incidents where we have immaculate birth. For example, Prophet Abraham's wife, Sarah, was barren so he didn't have any offspring. Then God said to him, 'Okay, find a woman. Don't marry her; she will serve you as a concubine and you may have offspring with her.' So his barren wife, Sarah, found an Egyptian woman who had a dark complexion. She delivered that baby named Ismail. After the baby was born, Abraham's attention, love and compassion shifted from Sarah to Hagar, for Sarah was barren and Hagar now had a baby. Sarah got jealous and started to beat up Hagar; she would give Abraham a terrible time. So God said to Abraham, 'Abraham, go take this woman and your son; leave them in the Arabian Peninsula.' So he went there and he left them. When he came back, he was really sad. And he was sitting very quietly and suddenly he realised that Gabriel was standing in front of him. Gabriel said, 'I see you don't have any progeny.' When [Gabriel] said, 'God asked me to work a miracle. Would you be interested enough to listen?' Abraham asked, 'How?' He said, 'I would simply place my palm on your wife's backbone and she would be okay then.' Then, he placed his palm on her back and she became pregnant. As a result of this pregnancy, the baby called Isaac was born. So Prophet Isaac was also father and motherless, but Jews don't know about this.
So when a baby is born and this baby does not have a father, it doesn't mean the baby is a son of God. Why? Because God doesn't have a body like you do. God's structure is spiritual, like your soul. If God is going to have a baby, a son or a daughter, then that son and daughter will be on his own structure: spiritual. Simple, isn't it? So what can be a son or daughter of God is the soul, not the body.
When a baby is born without having a biological father, then this is not something we can attribute to God having a son or daughter. This is simply a miracle. How does this happen? He uses his power of Command 'Be'. He would imagine an ovary of a woman and he would say, 'Let there be a sperm!' and there would be a sperm. 'Let there be a baby!' and there would be a baby.
What is the origin of that soul? If you deeply look into the formation and synthesis of blood, there are colourless corpuscles and there are white and red blood corpuscles. There are three different types of corpuscles that synthesise the blood. These red blood corpuscles play an active role; they are live. When God's name has entered the heart and your heart has now started producing divine light; when that divine light mingles in your bloodstream and penetrates into red blood corpuscles, every corpuscle in your blood will start to whisper God's name. A point will come when [all the] blood in the body has been spiritualised; then your heart will say God's name one time and God's name will echo in your bloodstream 35 million times. Can you imagine the quantity of the production of divine light?
When your heart has been initiated and remembrance of God has been implanted, and your heart is now in eternal commemoration of God's name, then the heart will not stop regardless of the fact that you are busy in some other activities. [For example, you could be] sleeping, at work, playing Fruit Ninja on your iPhone or reading a newspaper. Your heart is carefree of the activities of your body. The heart will whisper God's name 6000 times per hour. If you multiply 1 hour's remembrance of God by your heart by 35 million times, [210 billion] this is how much divine light is produced in your heart! You become ridiculously divine in no time!
6000 times in one hour, and in 24 hours a day, the number of times your heart is going to whisper God's name will exceed 144 000 times - a day! Now you need to multiply 144 000 times by 35 million = 504 billion times. Have you seen [those who are] holding a rosary in their hands and teasing girls on their street? How many times do they whisper God's names on those rosaries? Maybe 1000-2000 times a day. And look at this man, he is doing nothing! He is just sleeping and his internal system, after initiation of the heart, whispers God's name 504 billion times! And that's just one soul, only the heart. Just one soul! And you have seven. HDE said that the intensity of the soul is 70 000 more than the heart. HDE said, 'A time comes when the angels cannot count the number of times that you remember God's name and the scale is removed from your chest.' You are never short of divine energy.
This is when our people blow upon [others], they get healed quickly. 504 billion multiplied by 70 000 = 352 trillion. This is just [with] two souls [engaged]. This is what your blood can do. This is what the germs in your blood can do. They can whisper God's name, but that's it. They cannot do [anything] further. No other activity can be performed by these red germs in your blood.
But the Lord said, 'God also has similar germs in his body. They are not red and it's not blood. It is just milky liquid. It runs through his body and this liquid has germs. Whenever God wants, one of these germs from inside his body pop out from inside his body and take the shape of the soul.'
These germs are not like your filthy germs. God's germs are obviously, notoriously pure. Whenever a germ from his body pop outs, it takes shape of a soul. If that soul enters into your body when you are born, you are a Son of God. That is what Jesus has. A germ from the Father's body came out and turned into soul and that soul turned into flesh again when he was born.
One thing still hasn't been explained: how Jesus was able to speak when he was still a baby. According to spiritual sciences, it is not possible. According to divine law, it is not possible for a baby [to speak] while he is still an infant. Babies begin to say words when they are at least 18 months old. But maybe Jesus was [around] a few hours old and people asked Mother Mary, 'Who is this? Where did it come from?' She said, 'Ask the baby. I don't know anything.' And the baby Jesus said who he is. I mean, how did it happen? Of course we can simply say, 'Oh! It's a divine miracle' but how does it work?
In the Primordial Times, when God created all the souls, all the souls assembled before him and he asked them, 'Am I not your Lord?' And all the souls replied in positive; they said, 'Yes.' Now, before you came into this world, your souls were able to speak. Then how come, when a baby is born, it doesn't speak for at least one and a half years? Then how come no other prophet was able to speak in infancy? Only Jesus was able to speak. Obviously, when a baby is born they don't know anybody - but the mother stays with the baby 24 hours a day, so the baby develops this understanding that this woman is closely related. The baby doesn't know this woman who is taking care of it is the mother and the man who disappears for 12 hours and comes back after 12 hours is the father. Then, uncles and aunties and others play with the baby and the baby starts to show emotions. Like when somebody who spends a lot of the time with the baby comes, [the baby] gets happy. You can see the glee on their face. It means they do have emotions while they are still babies. Why do they have emotions? You have emotions because of the souls in your breast; now, because you have emotions, it means the souls are working. But for 18 months, at least, the baby doesn't speak. They cry and they make sounds, but they don't speak. However, Jesus was able to speak.
Now, there is one thing very important that I would like to remind you of. It was not simply the fact that Jesus was able to speak - but being a baby, just speaking words is not enough for a person in capacity of Lord Jesus Christ. For the sake of saying something, the baby could have said, 'I am a baby. This is my mother.' But if Jesus had said this, I wouldn't take it as a miracle because these are just utterances of words.
It was not simply the fact that Jesus was able to speak in infancy; at the same time, Jesus was aware of who he is. Jesus had this Gnostic Knowledge in him while he was still a baby and he knew who he is. It means it was Jesus' soul who was speaking.
He spoke about his origin; Jesus spoke about who he is. It definitely determines the fact that it was not the soul in the centre of the chest (which normally enables a man to speak); rather, it was Jesus' own soul that came from the Unseen World. If it was just [about] the baby speaking, the baby could have said anything normal but this would be ridiculous; it wouldn't signify the highly esteemed personality who was transporting himself and manifesting upon the face of the world, all the way [from] the Unseen World. It was not a normal speech. The speech did not come from where it always comes in human beings, the speech was coming not from the faculty of speech, but rather it was coming from the soul of Jesus.
The miracle is not that the baby spoke in the cradle, the miracle is that the baby knew who he is while he was in the cradle. Mother Mary didn't know who he was, but the baby did. This point is very important.

'A house and a human body in which God is remembered constantly remains under the merciful sight of God.' - His Divine Eminence RA Gohar Shahi
Thursday, 13 November 2014
Wednesday, 12 November 2014
The following is a transcript of His Holiness Younus AlGohar's speech.
There have always been two different types of knowledge. The first type of knowledge is about external affairs of human beings - this knowledge tells you how to worship God, keep your body clean and it gives you a set of rituals. This type of knowledge is found in the books and the books have always been available. Even if you do not have a teacher, you can go to a library, take a book, read it and understand this knowledge. So, this knowledge of outer is widely understood. It is so prominent and so present in all ages, that people have developed a thought that this knowledge alone is the true knowledge.
The second type of knowledge which is about your inner has been very scarcely available. This knowledge is not found in books; this knowledge is called spirituality. For example, if you have books on medical science and every library has books on medical science, but there are no hospitals and no practitioners, then those books cannot heal you. In a similar way, the knowledge of spirituality has been penned down in books; however this knowledge is futile unless it is practised by somebody who has acquired this knowledge in the spiritual realms (one who has acquired proximity with God, who has enlightened and awakened his souls).
Clerics in all religions talk about this knowledge; it is so approachable by everyone that people now think that this is only knowledge which is truthful. But the knowledge of spirituality is confined to spiritual practitioners; it is always practised, preached and appreciated by the spiritual practitioners. In simple terminology, [spiritual practitioners are] Saints who are connected to God.
It has been more than four centuries since the last spiritual practitioner came to the world. As a result of this, this knowledge has lost its glory. It has become a mythological, bookish concept. When you do not see things in the practice, you do not practically believe it.
There are so many things which are responsible for people not being able to understand this knowledge today [such as] the non-availability of spiritual practitioners: spiritualists, saints and those who practised Gnosticism. Therefore, what people think of a religion is to go to a worship place and spend a few minutes there (whether it is a mosque, church or synagogue), come back home, spend the rest of the day and night with your family, wake up in the morning, go to your workplace and then periodically celebrate your festive days according to your religion. That's all that people know today.
Awakening of the heart, purification of the Self (Ego), enlightenment of the soul - people do not relate to this knowledge in their life. When you talk about spirituality, people will nod their head in positive and they will really admire what you say; but it's not easy for them to practically show their inclination towards practical acceptance of this knowledge. Because this knowledge is not a part-time job, it's a full time job.
I am an advocate to this knowledge. I wouldn't have become known to myself and I wouldn't have known what this knowledge is, had His Divine Eminence Gohar Shahi not personally taken an enormous amount of interest in reviving my heart, enlightening my soul and purifying my Ego/Self. Once I entered the realm of spirituality, I became aware of the truthfulness of this knowledge.
For example, we all know Neil Armstrong touched on the surface of the Moon in the 1960's. However still, as common men, we do not seriously believe that we will go on the Moon one day, although we have known for the past 3-4 decades that it is now humanly possible to walk on the Moon. We believe that somebody has done it; man from our society has reached the Moon and walked on the Moon, but still a common man doesn't really relate to this notion of going up there and walking on the Moon, because it is confined to some people. Resources, training and a lot of things are done before one is fully prepared to go into space. Not everybody can travel in space. A lot of physical, exhaustive tests and examinations have to be taken care of and worthiness of travel has to be determined. In a similar way, those who have reached God and seen all these Ethereal Realms have penned it down in the books; they have invited others to read it and try to approach this. However, not everybody is convinced enough to invest a large portion of their life and show the required amount of dedication.
Spirituality is not difficult. But it requires dedication, steadfastness; it depends how consistent, persistent and dedicated you are. Consistency is the mother to a lot of success.
Secondly, it is in the nature of human beings that they are naturally lazy. They opt to do things in which they do not have to make a lot of efforts. In this day and age, when science is actually making us lazier by inventing things which are making our life allegedly easy, we are becoming more and more dependent on these inventions. For example, [in the past], we would use mobile phones when somebody was far away from us. But now, we see you are texting somebody who is sitting next door, in the other room. These inventions reveal our dependency and our desire that of letting ourselves be lazier, [of getting] somebody else [to do what we must do]. This is why, as long as we have iPhones and iPads, we are not going to make an effort to do things.
But in spirituality it's not difficult, it's not rocket science. It's just a matter of priority. If you prefer to enjoy sleep in a cosy bed and this is your priority, then forget about spirituality. But if you want to empower your soul and become a spiritual man who is in contact with both worlds, you are going to have to sacrifice your sleep. You have to come out of your comfort zone. It's all about priorities. In spirituality it is not a set of rituals, it's not about celebrating spiritual festivity. It is about eliminating negativity from your inner being and reviving your inside.
You do not know yourself. If you just spend 10-15 minutes reflecting on your own self, asking yourself who you are, what the purpose of your life is and what you are doing here, then probably you will see that there is no answer. Do you know why? Because the real you is still dormant. The voice of your soul is suppressed by the voice of negativity, the voice of the devil in you. You only come to know of yourself when you have reached the stage of revival.
Your souls are in sleeping mode; therefore, you don't know what's good or right for you, because you are sleeping. You don't know you; the agent of devil is active in you. This is why you hate, regret, get angry, fight, swear and bark like a dog - because its not you. Spirituality is not difficult at all, however it is for people who can make efforts and who know their priorities.
In the last 400 years, there was no talk of spirituality. The Shiite denomination in Islam marks the day of 10th Muharram because the grandson of Prophet Mohammad was martyred. Their understanding is that in order to show love for them, they have to imitate everything that took place 1400 years ago in the Battlefield of Karbala. For example, the horses that they were riding were injured, their tents were put on fire, no food, no water was offered to them and they were thirsty for the last 7 days before they were martyred. They try to imitate everything and this is how they show their love. What it simply means to me is that these individuals are not aware of spirituality; therefore they are seeking outward ways of showing their love. Had they known spirituality, they wouldn't be doing this; they wouldn't be beating their chests. This is not love.
This is exactly what Christians are doing. They say that Jesus hung himself on the cross for our sins. 'For the wages of sins is death.' [But] God never said this. If the wages of sins is death, doesn't it simply mean that God is not able to forgive anybody? If the wages of sins is death, then you have bought it. You have bought comfort. Even if you do not sin, you will die one day. Death is just death. Whether you are a sinner or a saint, you will die one day.
Spirituality had not been practised in the last 400 years because there was no spiritual master. Because there was no spiritual master who would put the theory into practice, therefore, nobody talked about spirituality. Because nobody talked about spirituality, with the passage of time, it became extinct. As a result of the knowledge of spirituality becoming extinct, people found themselves distant from God; because the only way of coming into nearness to God is through spirituality. You revive and purify your heart, enlighten your soul and then you enter into different realms. You embark upon a spiritual journey and you arrive at the Station of Divine Surprise; you arrive at the Station of Divine Majesty and you get to see God. You enter into live conversation with God. This is only possible once you have embarked upon the Spiritual Path.
Spiritual knowledge was not available because a spiritual master was not available. So, people didn't talk about spirituality. With the passage of time, spiritual knowledge and practice became extinct. Then all of the sudden, His Divine Eminence Gohar Shahi appeared on the screen and He started giving real knowledge of spirituality; pure spirituality without the blend of any religion. HDE Gohar Shahi didn't ask you who you are.
'Christian, Muslim, Hindu; I don't need to know who you are as long as you want to love God. Revive your heart, enlighten your soul, come sit down here. Close your eyes and say the name of the Lord three times. In the next couple of days if you do not feel any vibration, any warmth of light, then you can complain.' And then HDE Gohar Shahi said, 'In return, I do not seek anything from you.'
This is the custom: when you do something for somebody, you anticipate something in return. It has become so natural. When you do something, in any form, you anticipate something in return. If you say something good [to someone], you anticipate that he [would do the same]. HDE Lord Ra Riaz Gohar Shahi did not anticipate or seek anything in return.
HDE Gohar Shahi said, 'I will not ask you to pledge allegiance with me. I will not let you enter into any commitment with me. If you are seeking spiritual help from me, it doesn't mean you are committed to me. You are a free bird, a free soul. [This] is just a divine gift without pledging any allegiance, without making any commitment.'
The disciples always donate a lot of money to the spiritual master and this is part of the Indian and Pakistani spiritual culture. You may not have an air conditioner in your home, but you must buy one for your spiritual master. You may be in pain, but you want to make sure your master is not in any type of pain. This is a type of culture.
But HDE Gohar Shahi said, 'This knowledge of spirituality, this power, is a gift of God for you from me. I do not want anything from you.'
Then one day somebody said, 'Can I give something to you?' The Lord said, 'What is it that God hasn't already given to me that you will give? I have everything.' Then the Lord said, 'If with the help of this knowledge, your heart is initiated, you feel the spiritual vibe in your heart and you are connected to God, then say a few words of prayer for me. If you don't obtain anything from this practice, then you go your way and I go mine.' Simple! No commitment at all.
This has never happened in history. We have this phrase in English: labour of love. But this is just in the dictionary. Nobody labours for love. You don't labour for love, you just say it [but] HDE Gohar Shahi has done it.
His Divine Eminence Gohar Shahi said, 'No commitment. I don't seek anything in return from you; no spiritual, financial or any gains in any shape or form. However, I shall continue to help you until you are connected to God.'
This seems too good to be true but this is true because we have been with His Divine Eminence Gohar Shahi for many years; we've seen it.
Today, on the 9th of Muharram, we celebrate the unveiling of His Divine Eminence Gohar Shahi's own secrets, secrets of HDE's own Self.
Just bear in mind: for the last 400 years, there was no talk of spirituality. People who claimed they knew spirituality, their spiritual practice was confined to celebrating days of the Saints. Cooking food and dedicating that food to a Saint of God and then making sure everybody filled their stomachs was the spiritual practice that they knew of. No other form of spirituality was known.
If a religious man is whispering the name of God upon a rosary in the mosque, church, temple or synagogue and you as a Sufi, as a spiritual man, are doing the same, then what is the difference between religious practice and spiritual practice? HDE Gohar Shahi elaborated spiritual practice.
HDE Gohar Shahi categorically said, 'In religions you whisper the name of God with a piece of flesh hung between your jaws. In spirituality you whisper the name of God, not by your tongue which is hung between two jaws, rather you whisper the name of God by a piece of flesh which is hung between your ribs: that is your heart.'
In religions, you remember God periodically. In spirituality God's remembrance becomes eternal; you never stop remembering God. Does it mean you stop doing everything else? No. You keep doing everything that you used to do before. There are some additional souls in you, the functions of which you are not aware of. For example, you are not aware of the spiritual function of your heart. The only function you are aware of is that it pumps the blood, throbs and produces electricity in your body. You do not know the mysterious, mystical function of the heart. The mystical function of the heart is to produce Divine Light; it is to connect you to God.
When your heart has been activated to function spiritually, then God's name will whisper in your heart involuntarily without even notifying you. The number of times your heart whispers God's name is not mentioned to your mind. The heart becomes independent, in its own free state and doesn't require your permission. It doesn't feel compelled to notify you of how many times it is going to whisper the name of God.
This is spirituality! This knowledge is dangerous. Why is it dangerous and why do people oppose this knowledge so much? Somebody goes to a church or mosque, spends 10 hours there and he whispers God's name maybe 1000 times; you go nowhere and you say, 'I remember God eternally.' People will say, 'You don't even go to a mosque. You are a liar. You don't even read the Bible, you don't even read Quran and you are saying you remember God eternally?' They oppose it because they are not aware of the function of the heart. They are not aware of the function of the heart because they have been told by their clerics and seminaries that this knowledge does not exist.
When your heart advances more in spirituality, you are laying down and everybody is upset.
'Did you sleep well?'
'When, when did i sleep?'
'You were snoring!'
'No i wasn't.'
'What was it then?'
'I don't know.'
'Ok, you were not snoring, you were not sleeping, where were you then?'
'I was sitting with God.'
'He is a liar! He was sleeping and he is saying he was sitting with God. Come on!'
But you see, they do not know this knowledge. They do not relate to this knowledge in their life; they have no access. This is why they think this knowledge does not exist and that it's all fabrication, concoction of the mind.
For the past 400 years, this knowledge had not been practised. As a result of this extinction of this knowledge, people forgot about this knowledge. They thought everybody who goes to a church is a holy man or anyone who goes to the mosque is a holy man. These idiots who are sitting in mosques, temples and churches are Saints of God because they are holding Quran, Bible; hence they are the best people on earth. That's their understanding. In other words, because they think they go to work and only come to the mosque for 30 minutes, whereas the man in the mosque who is leading prayers has been there all day, has made a lot of sacrifices; he has cut off himself from the rest of the world and has dedicated his life to this divine cause. They don't know he's raping young children in there. They don't know he is charging 100 pounds per minute for sitting there in the mosque and in some mosques even more than that. This is a job; they're not doing it for God; they are doing it for their Nafs (Self).
But then came HDE Gohar Shahi and again the same message that Jesus gave 2000 years ago was given to people. The same message with the same tone, but more forward; more determination was heard. Not in Nazareth this time [but in] Pakistan.
And HDE Gohar Shahi said to them, 'Growing a beard is good and doing everything that the Prophet did is very good. But getting connected to God is more important than anything else.'
Growing a beard, looking like a fool all in white, wearing long apparel - this is all people can do today. Act like an idiot, ask people to kill others, hold a gun and shoot innocent people for any reason - 'Oh he is a Christian, Hindu or Jew. Shoot him!' That's all they can do because they are the culprits; they are the criminals who are increasing hatred in this world. This is no religion. But the religion does not have a solution to bring this onslaught to an end.
No religion has the solution and no law has the solution be it British, American, Swiss or Australian Law. They say, 'You are not a criminal until you commit the crime.' How do we stop it? We can't stop it; we can only arrest him once he has committed the crime. What do we do then? We just stand there and let him do everything and then say, 'You are under arrest'? Why can't we stop him? Why can't we change his mentality? Why can't we save two persons: the one who is about to be killed and the one who will kill and go to jail forever? We are going to help two men at a time and this knowledge has the solution.
Why We Celebrate the 9th of Muharram
So people did not know about spiritual knowledge. His Divine Eminence Gohar Shahi started to tell people about this knowledge. When His Divine Eminence spoke about this knowledge, He was surrounded by Muslims; so He told them about a brand of spirituality which was practised by the Prophet Mohammad. He told them 'This is what the Prophet did.' Then the Lord gave them examples and referenced from their own books. 'This is what the Prophet said, this is what God said. Do this.' People like myself were really convinced and said, 'Okay, we are doing it.'
A point came where we realised, 'What did the Prophet do in my spiritual upbringing? All the way it was His Divine Eminence Gohar Shahi who did it.' I said, 'I am not Mohammadan; I am Goharian.' What did Mohammad do? All the way, from the point where I didn't know anything, His Divine Eminence Gohar Shahi revived my heart and turned me into a human being from a dog. Now what should I do? Shouldn't I even thank my Lord and shouldn't I even say, 'This is HDE Gohar Shahi who turned a dog into a man'? Why should I dedicate the hard work of HDE Gohar Shahi to Prophet Mohammad?
Then when the Lord had spent some years with people, advocating and professing spirituality, gradually, people started to know what spirituality is. Obviously, they came to know of the brand of spirituality which they were educated about. Then came a brisk turn in the history of HDE Gohar Shahi's time here: HDE Gohar Shahi decided to lift a veil from His house.
I'm telling you why we are celebrating this day today. 15 years ago, on the same day, something happened. That was the time when His Divine Eminence Gohar Shahi decided to introduce to the world some of His own personal secrets. The Lord said, 'I want to introduce my inner self to the world now, from time to time.' The reason why HDE Gohar Shahi wanted to do this was that in the future, only these spiritual entities will be among people. Those who started the mission will go somewhere else and these new entities from within HDE will be serving humanity in the future. Now was the time. Like people, for the last 400 years, were not aware of spirituality - and when spiritual knowledge was brought to them, they were in the state of awe. They didn't know anything; they didn't have a clue. So it [was] awesome experience. When they came to know of spirituality gradually, then something struck them. Initially, the Lord told them what they didn't hear for 400 years; now, on this day, they heard something which never came to this world before.
On the 9th of Muharram: the holy spirit of Gohar Shahi came for the first time.
