Quote of the Day: Spirituality is All About...

'Spirituality is all about actions, not talks.' - His Holiness Younus AlGohar

Propagation in Balaji Temple, Rajasthan

On the 19th of May, 2015, a team from Kalki Avatar Foundation India visited the Balaji Temple in the state of Rajasthan. Our members propagated Kalki Avatar Gohar Shahi's miraculous teachings throughout the entire temple. Many people were inspired by our message. Numerous people were eager to learn about Kalki Avatar Ra Gohar Shahi and His images of the Moon, Sun and Holy Black Stone (Maha Shivling). The invocation of 'Ra Raam' was also granted to temple-goers. The overall response from people was wonderful and we look forward to promulgating in Rajasthan again soon!

Quote of the Day: If You Easily...

'If you easily get angry, you will be hardly happy.' - His Holiness Younus AlGohar


The following is a transcript of His Holiness Younus AlGohar’ s speech. His Holiness is the Official Representative of Lord Ra Riaz.

Jesus’s favourite signature spiritual style was austerity – refraining from indulgence of luxury. Luxury is not just of one type. Some people suffer from luxurious liberties. [It could happen when] you do something bad and nobody pinpoints that you are bad because they are frightened of you. They would say one word to you and you would retaliate in such a strong way that you shut up all of them. And the next time you do something bad, nobody will say that you are bad; they will just keep quiet. When you realise, ‘I’ve done this and nobody has retaliated,’ you want to do it again. Next time you want to do it, you do it more ferociously. This is luxury; this is indulgence. With your behaviour, you tell people, ‘Do not criticise me.’ You don’t say it, but this is how you behave. You do not want people to criticise you even for your own good.
If you are able to take criticism, you are good. For a common person, it is not possible to take criticism positively.
The moment people criticise someone, they will think, ‘That person is jealous of me.’ If you criticise people for a reason and that reason is positive, it means you want them to reform themselves. But if you do it for some other negative reasons, such as to insult and defame them publicly, then that is different. But it is obvious when [it is done with those intentions]. People do not like those who criticise them for any reason.
As a spiritual man, if you see somebody criticising you for a valid reason and this criticism is positive, then you should be patient enough for you own goodness to look into that criticism and reprimand yourself; repair your actions.
There are many who will criticise you out of jealously or out of any contempt for you. It is very easy to criticise others. It is the most favourite pastime of everybody in this world.

When you tell them, ‘What you are doing is not good,’

They will retaliate and say, ‘Oh like you’re good! Look at yourself – what did you do?’

It means, ‘Please do not correct me. I do not want to correct myself.’

If you tell someone, ‘This path that you are embarked on will lead you to hellfire and that [other] path is good and verified,’

He will return and say, ‘Okay, let me go to hell and you go to paradise.’

This means that person has closed doors of guidance on himself.
If somebody wants to give you a piece of advice and you turn a deaf ear on it, it simply means you are gone. You are thousands of miles away from God.
Taking criticism even if somebody criticises you and you know this criticism is just a waste of time and it is out of jealously, even then you should look into yourself and see whether you suffer from what has been publicised among people.

For example, if people say, ‘You are very rude,’

Don’t dismiss it straight away. Look into yourself and see if you really are rude.

If somebody criticises you, do not dismiss it straight away. Take a moment, reflect on it and see whether or not it is true. If it true then you should be really obliged to feel gratitude to the person who criticised you. He pointed out some flaw in you, as a result of which you have removed that flaw and have become even better, purer. After you have gone through all your behaviour, character and everything and you find out that the criticism was just out of jealousy, you should forgive such people. As a spiritual man you should not criticise others, but when other criticise you, you should take it seriously.
If a flaw is detected in you, then remove that flaw and thank the person who criticised you.
Criticising others for no reason is patheticism. Some people enjoy being pathetic. They say something about somebody which is not true. When people think badly about that person after this criticism, they feel happy, like they are destroying his personality. Such people are the complete personification of the devil. They feel happy when they hurt others.

Criticism is a very volatile thing. It is very sensitive.
If you must criticise somebody because it is in their best interest and it is positive, then criticise them in private. Try not to create a scene with it.

Quote of the Day: Too Much...

Quote of the Day: When People Make Mistakes...

'When people make mistakes, we give them love because there is nothing greater than love.' - Lord Ra Gohar Shahi 

Your Relationship with God and the World

The following is an excerpt from His Holiness Younus AlGohar's speech. His Holiness is the Official Representative of Lord Ra Riaz

Your meeting with God and your relationship with God will totally depend on purity and strength of your heart. The stronger your heart is, the stronger your relationship with God is. How good the relationship will be between you and God will depend on how strong your heart is. How strong your heart can be will depend on how much divine light is accumulated in your heart. How much light can be accumulated in your heart will depend on how frequently your heart recollects the name of God. You will behave with God really well when your heart is strong. 

How you behave with people will depend on how pure your Nafs (Ego/Self) is. In your relationship with God, your heart will play a pivotal role; in your relationship with the world, your Nafs will play a pivotal role. The worse the condition your Nafs is in, the worse relation you will have with the world. 
If your behaviour with the Lord is genuinely okay, then your behaviour with your fellowmen will definitely be okay. If your behaviour with people is bad but your behaviour with God is good, it simply means your behaviour with God is fake. Do you know why?
The condition of your Nafs is directly proportional to the condition of your heart. Your heart will be as pure as your Nafs. If your Nafs is not pure, your heart is not pure. 
Your behaviour with God will depend on the purity of your heart and your behaviour with people will depend on the purity of your Nafs. If your Nafs is good, your heart will be as good as your Nafs. Those who appear to be nice to God but are not nice to people are faking it; they are not nice, factually and actually. 

I had already said in previous lectures: if your Nafs is Lawwamma (The Repenting Self), your heart has to be Qalb-e-Saleem (The Secured Heart). It is not possible that you see progress in elevation of the state of your Nafs but you do not see progress in elevation of your heart. Your heart will be at the same level of your Nafs. It is not possible that your Nafs is Lawwamma and your heart is Shaheed (The Witnessing Heart). If your Nafs is Lawwamma, your heart is Qalb-e-Saleem. If your Nafs is Ilhama (The Inspired Self), your heart is Qalb-e-Muneeb (The Heart Turned Towards God). If your Nafs is Mutma’inna (The Divinely Content Self), your heart has to be Qalb-e-Shaheed (The Witnessing Heart). Side note: you can learn more about these different stages in The Religion of God (Divine Love).
Those who love God but hate human beings are liars. One who genuinely loves God, the state of his Nafs shall never allow him to hate human beings. 
One who loves God has to love humanity. He doesn’t need to make an effort because it is automatic. If you see people ‘loving’ God and spending money in the name of God - but when they are walking in the street, they see people in need and don’t help them even if they are able to - it is not spirituality. Their spiritual progression has come to a halt. It is impossible that you love God but you don’t love his creation. It is impossible that you love humanity but you don’t want to see God. You will only love humanity truly and genuinely when you genuinely and truly love God. 
Loving humanity is the side effect of loving God. 
We have seen all our lives that when people are in the presence of the Lord, they are so nice to the Lord as if they are angels. [But when they leave the presence of the Lord, they behave rudely with others]. When they were being nice to the Lord, it was not genuine. They were faking it. 

For example, if everybody is crying because somebody died, even if you don’t feel like crying, because you fear somebody will say, 'He's not sad; he's not crying!' you fake it. 

If you are nice to the Lord but not to a common man, you were faking being nice to the Lord.
If you are genuinely nice to the Lord, you will definitely be genuinely nice to a common man.

Quote of the Day: Only Divine Love...

'Only divine love fills the heart with peace and bliss.' - His Holiness Younus AlGohar

Self-Realisation is God-Realisation

We’re trying to change the way people believe in religions. We are trying to change people and the way they live their lives; we are trying to change the wavelength upon which their thought-process is based. Before we can successfully do that, we are going to try and change our own selves. 

Sometimes you like others and sometimes you don’t. To criticise others is very easy. However, even if they know who they are and how bad they are, it is never easy for individuals to change themselves from bad to good. You are aware of defects in you; you are aware of any disorder in your personality, in your character. You are aware of your flaws and faults; however it is never easy to change yourself. Those who can successfully change themselves are real men.

A Tradition of the Prophet Mohammad when he said, ‘One who has recognised himself has recognised God,’ is the theme of spirituality. 
Self-realisation is factually and actually God-realisation.
Dr Allama Iqbal said, ‘Take the level of self-realisation to a degree where God recognises you.’ 

When you set out to explore God, you actually explore yourself. Now the question is: how do we explore ourselves? What is ‘Self-realisation’? ‘Self’ has different meanings; however, here, self means the wholeness of your being. You. 

To put it into simple words, let’s assume the Self is like a house and you want to know the house. What do you want to know about the house? You want to know how many bedrooms, reception rooms, toilets and family bathrooms there are. You want to know if the bedrooms are en suite and if there is a front garden or backyard. You want to know the size of the bedrooms and how many people can stay there. You want to know whether or not there is a weather control system in the house. You want to know where the kitchen is and if the dining room is attached to the kitchen. Knowing everything about your house is ‘house-realisation.’ 

In a similar way, when you want know who you are, the first thing will be to know how many souls there are in your body, their functions, their reach and access to different realms. You want to know how to strengthen them and how to make every possible use of those souls and spirits in your body. If only one soul is active and the rest of the souls are in a dormant state, [you want to know] how far in God-realisation you will go and how spiritual you will [possibly become] with that one active soul. All these things are self-realisation. 
The more souls in your body are active, the more you will know of yourself.
If any of your souls are either dormant or diseased - knowing the fact that this disease can deprive your being of that particular soul - what measures should be taken in order to cure that soul of that disease? Knowing what your spiritual calibre and level of spirituality is and then, with that level of spirituality, where in the spiritual world you will access and how far in loving God you will progress – this all depends on how well you know yourself.
Now, you don’t even know how many souls in your body are actually active and how many are not active. You want to know yourself but there is a barrier; a complete blackout.
Self-realisation is not possible without a Universal Spiritual Guide. All you know right now is what you can see in a mirror. That’s all you know about yourself. What is inside you is hidden from you and only God has the keys. 

There are keys in spirituality. With those keys, you activate your soul and then reach its realm when the soul is strong enough to fly. For example, your heart is active, it is strong and it is now able to perform a spiritual journey - so with the help of the heart, you will reach its respective realm in spirituality. When you visit that realm, a new door of secrets will open upon you. A new door of realization opens up in you and you begin to know more of your abilities, capabilities and spiritual calibre. Then you will be triggered into activating your other souls as well. Then with another soul, you will have more access into the spiritual realm; you will know more of yourself. 

You will feel satisfied and special that you had this ability in you [all along] but you were not aware of this; but now, since the activation of the soul has taken place, access of that spiritual realm has been given to you. You will be proud of yourself. Then with another soul activated you will have more access in spirituality and you will reach more realms in spirituality. Then you will realise, ‘Oh, I have another key.’ With the help of this key, you will progress further in spirituality. 
This is how you will arrive at the station of God one day, when all your souls are activated. You will arrive at the Station of God-Seeing; the Station of Union where your being and the supreme being of God will mingle into each other in such a spiritual chemistry that there will be no mark of distinction between the two. 
This is the Stage of Union. When you have obtained union with God, you become the embodiment of God on Earth. Thereafter, sitting with such an individual is spiritually equal to sitting with God. Talking to such an individual is equal to talking with God. This is because that person has the presence of God in him and God speaks through his mouth. God can see people through his eyes. When he is walking, it is like God is walking on two legs. This is self-realisation.

MFI at the Lincoln Memorial

On the 2nd and 3rd of May, 2015 Messiah Foundation USA visited the Lincoln Memorial in Washington D.C.

Even policewomen present at the monument showed interest in our message. Plenty of passers-by approached us to study the images more closely and also paused to take pictures of our banner. The response was fantastic as always and our team will definitely continue this activity in the future.

How to Reach God Today

The following is an excerpt from His Holiness Younus AlGohar‘s speech. His Holiness is the Official Representative of Lord Ra Riaz Gohar Shahi.

We embrace all faiths, all beliefs, all religions and all colours without reservations or prejudice. In the eyes of the Lord Ra Riaz and Lord Jesus Christ, the only criterion that of judging the superiority of an individual is which exceeds in love within the hearts. The Lord does not count bodies and its mortal beauty to any goodness; he that is near to God and he that is enriched with God’s love is sublime.
God is least concerned about engagements of your bodies, for God favours those that are preoccupied with loving God. God is far from the reach of human intellect. The only way to God’s nearness is God’s love as when it settles in a human heart!
We come from the Soul Age, the age when there were no religions – but God was the essence and circumferential of all souls. We speak of love for nothing existed as when we were brought into existence. There is no religion superior to that of the Religion of God. We solicit souls to adopt the divine nature. Nothing is greater than that which harmonises thy soul with the nature of God. This is exactly what we proclaim at the platform of Messiah Foundation International.

A thing of beauty is a joy forever, its loveliness increases and it will never pass into nothingness; that thing of beauty is the great name of the greatest Lord. Take this gift, [Invocation of the Heart], from the Lord and ignite the fire of love in the furnace of your heart.

Worship is like a tablet; if the stomach is unhealthy, it will not work. If the heart is unhealthy, the worship shall be fruitless. Let’s try a by-pass to God. We’ll give jabs of love direct into the soul [thanks to the Goharian Philosophy of Divine Love].
