Quote of the Day: How Progressive You Will Be...

'How progressive you will be in your spiritual quest will directly depend on how determined you are.' - His Holiness Younus AlGohar

The Super Blood Moon

On September 27th and September 28th, get ready for a double celestial event: the Supermoon (Perigee Moon) and lunar eclipse. 

Not only will the Moon appear larger and brighter than usual, but it will turn a blood red colour as the sun eclipses it.

This rare phenomenon is believed to be one of the signs of the end times, as per the Bible Prophecy:

‘The sun shall be turned into darkness, and the moon into blood, before the great and the terrible day of the Lord comes.’

It will form the fourth event in the ‘Tretrad’ which marks the beginning of a new series of events leading to the end of the world in Christian philosophy.

Whilst observing the Supermoon eclipse, take the opportunity to investigate the images of the Awaited Ones Lord Ra Riaz Gohar Shahi and Lord Jesus Christ on the Moon (and obtain the benefits)! In the turbulent times to come, call upon these divine images on the Moon for help and experience the bounty of the Awaited Ones.

Quote of the Day: You Don't Have to Learn to Hate...

'You don’t have to learn to hate, but in order to love, you need some learning.' - His Holiness Younus AlGohar (The Power of Love and the Holy Black Stone)

The Power of Love and the Holy Black Stone

His Holiness Younus AlGohar was recently invited by the Brahma Kumari Centre in Sri Lanka to speak about the power of love and the significance of the Maha Shiv Ling. The following is the transcript of His Holiness's talk. 

The Holy Black Stone

It is such a pleasurable moment to be with people who show tolerance, love and understanding of the truth. I’m grateful to be invited here in this spiritual gathering.
I was born in a Muslim family. As a Muslim, I did have an enormous amount of love and affection for the Holy Black Stone (which is believed to be the Maha Shiv Ling according to Sanatan Dharma). However, my life took a U-turn when I met my spiritual father and He initiated my heart into spirituality. He showed to me the true meaning of life. He liberated my soul and my brain from the limitations of religions.
Then I became a love and peace activist. I was given to study the importance of the Holy Black Stone which, as I earlier mentioned, is believed to be Maha Shiv Ling. It has the core values in Sanatan Dharma.
I was really amazed how important that sacred Holy Stone is and the treasure that it has inside it. Then I was really dismayed, disappointed by the fact that it has been confined to one particular race and no other religions were allowed to show their affection or practise their reverence to that Sacred Black Stone.
I realised that all the divine energies and divine light emanate from Maha Shiv Ling.
Truly, Maha Shiv Ling is not just the mark of divinity, but also the house of divinity.
This is what draws me towards Brahma Kumaris: their affection, their love and their understanding of the Holy Black Stone. I hope the time will soon come when Maha Shiv Ling will be available for all human beings of the world to physically approach and be able to show their affection, love and reverence to the Sacred Stone.

Being a humble servant of His Divine Grace Lord Ra Riaz Gohar Shahi and a worker of Kalki Avatar Foundation, my heart is utterly pleased to share our knowledge, our trust and our energies with our brothers and sisters who are involved, through thick and thin, in the divine duties under the platform of Brahma Kumaris.

We as Kalki Avatar Foundation are striving pretty hard all over the world to raise awareness of the importance of the Holy Black Stone and what could be achieved. But before we are able to achieve anything from the Holy, Sacred Stone, there is a need for raising awareness of the essentiality and importance of the Holy Black Stone. At some point in time, with your help, we will be able to raise this issue universally to let others know what we have obtained. We will let them know how important it is for other members of the global society and for us to share our energies, to show tolerance, to extend love and to establish peace throughout the world.
The Power of Love
Religions have become corrupted somehow or other. It is very unfortunate.
You are making all the possible efforts you can - you have centres in so many countries all around the world. With the divine help of the Master, this beacon of light is already pushing away the darkness. But my friends, there is enough darkness and we have to make more efforts.

Especially in people who take pride in their religiosity but at the same time their hearts are darkened by illiteracy; they are naïve to the sole purpose of the religion. They are people who are spending a good amount of time in their worship places; however, they are naïve to divinity. They are those who are spending an enormous amount of time in their religious customs and worship; however they fail to appreciate the value of human life. They are those who fail to appreciate the power of mutual love. They are those who fail to appreciate the fact that we are all children of one father. We are all creation of one God; you may call him God, Allah, Bhagwan, but it is the same source. This diversification has to vanish. That will happen when we begin to realise that in nature, in originality, all of us come from the same source. [We need] to promote universal brotherhood and global peace.

It is very good sermon. Sweet, beautiful words: global peace, love, mutual understanding. But the problem is how to obtain it. You hold a conference and you invite different individuals from different religions. On this stage, they will talk really sweetly. But when they go back to their temples, mosques and synagogues, they will be different. This is because they do not know how to love.
People think to love is very easy. But there is one divine formula you need to understand by His Divine Eminence Gohar Shahi: you don’t have to learn to hate but in order to love, you need some learning. You need some practical knowledge.
This was the inspiration that compelled me to quit what I was doing as a religious person and I adopted spirituality. I was given to understand by my Lord Ra Riaz Gohar Shahi that to be able to love, we need spiritual knowledge and spiritual application.

We have many organs in our body. For example: the eyes. We know what the function of the eye is: to see. We never try to eat with our eyes because we know its function. You will never, even by mistake, put food in your eyes. 

In a similar way, to love there is a specific organ in our body. That is the heart.

You must be thinking, ‘That is very famous. Everybody talks about it. You’re not sharing any secret with us. Even in the movies, people say that the place of the love is in the heart.’
That’s true. But here you go, I have something very subtle and unique - however very easy to understand.
This heart is symbolic to love. However, this is just used as a metaphor.
If I ask you, ‘can you love somebody with your heart?’

You will simply say, ‘Yes, I love them by heart.’

But you don’t know how to love by heart. And I didn’t know anything about it until I met my lord and he not only told me about it but he gave a practical application and spiritual functionality. He told me about the importance of the heart.
His Divine Eminence told me, ‘This fleshy heart which pumps the blood in the body - there is a specific soul onto the heart. This soul has to be awakened and only a true divinely ordained Guru will activate that soul.’
When that soul is activated it needs nourishment. The nourishment of the soul is not food that we eat for our stomach. No bread, no meat, no vegetables.
The nourishment of the soul is divine light, divine energy. Although people go to worship places and worship there extensively, people do not know that the purpose of worship is to create divine energy.
They do create divine energy unknowingly, but because they are doing it unknowingly, they do not know where to store it. Whatever amount of divine energy is created or generated in the worship place is lost. It doesn’t matter who you are and what worship place you go to: a temple, a church, a mosque or a synagogue; no matter what type of worship you are carrying out, you are making divine energy. But without spirituality, you do not know how to store it and make proper use of that divine energy.

So what happens is: the true spiritual guide implants Shabd (God’s name) into the beating system of the heart. What happens then? Every time the heart beats, God’s name is proclaimed. And you’re sitting doing nothing - or maybe talking to your husbands, wives and children. But at the same time, your heart is constantly repeating God’s name. That’s when divine energy starts to be generated and it nurtures the spiritual soul that sits on the heart. In three years’ time with a constant supply of divine energy (which is generated as a result of synchronisation with the heartbeats) your soul grows up.

It becomes strong enough to govern your heart. Then your heart learns spiritual love. Once your heart has learned spiritual love, then you will not only love God but you will love all human beings no matter who they are - whether they are Sri Lankans, Indians, Americans, Malaysians or Singaporeans. Because you understand - and in the way of experience and divine observation, you touch upon the realisation of the truth.
You become acquainted with divinity. When you spot divinity in every single human soul, you begin to feel attracted to them. This becomes the bond of love.
Those who today are using religion as a tool of hatred do not understand this knowledge. Because no matter what religion they practise, a religion for them is like a beautiful outfit; but behind that beautiful outfit is a beast.

Q & A Session with His Holiness Younus AlGohar
Question: Only Muslims can visit the Holy Black Stone?
Yes, only Muslims unfortunately.

But the problem is, not much knowledge was given to them about the importance of the Holy Black Stone.
However, it was said that whoever kisses the Holy Black Stone out of love and reverence, then that person’s sins would be washed away, he would become pure and he would find salvation. Merely kissing the Holy Black Stone and you will find salvation - that’s beautiful, isn’t it? So simple, easy - and good for us. We don’t have to go to temples and mosques 5 or 10 times a day. Just simply go there, kiss it and go home!

But that’s the truth.
Question: Can you talk about the beauty of the mind?
The mind is controlled by intellect. And intellect is the calculation of what we see and experience.
What we do not experience and do not see, the mind is quiet on those subjects.
The mind is controlled by our experience, observation and negative sources, evil sources. But when the heart becomes pure and the soul becomes pure, then the mind is controlled by the heart. In some people, the mind is very strong; they don’t listen to their heart. So the mind ruins their life!

But those whose heart is strong, rightly guided and enlightened, they listen to their heart because their heart has God’s presence. So they never go wrong.
Question: Can I know who is Kalki?
The image of Kalki is in Maha Shiv Ling. Have a look at it and then look for Him. It is not easy because He is Lord. You have to go after Him.

Even when we are looking for a nice, beautiful wife, we have to work hard. So you are talking about God! You have to spend some time looking for Him.
Question: Is He the Avatar?
The Avatar is the Appointed One from God. Kalki refers to the Dark Age. We are going through dark ages now; it is the time for the Kalki to come.

Human blood is being shed: carnage, murder, terrorism, hatred. What else do we want to have more in this world before Kalki arrives? That’s enough.
Question: Rather than taking emotional decisions, we are bound to take rational decisions sometimes - especially in business. What are your thoughts on this?
Rationality is very important, as important as sanity is. Emotional decisions should be avoided because we do not know whether the emotions are true or false.
Emotions are fuelled by our desires; sometimes the desires are wrong and sometimes the desires confine us to ourselves. We become selfish and self-centred.
If the emotions are fuelled by our carnal, lustful or financial desires, you cannot follow emotions. Emotions are very fake sometimes. So it is better to adopt rationality.

Speaking about business, I don’t see emotions playing any part in business. So it’s better to take a rational decision.

Quote of the Day: You Cannot Remove Hatred...

Quote of the Day: What Do You Know...

'What do you know if you don't know you?' - His Holiness Younus AlGohar

The Sunday Island’s Interview with HH Younus AlGohar

The following is the transcript of Steve A. Morell’s interview with His Holiness Younus AlGohar, the CEO of Messiah Foundation International. For the piece published in the Sunday Island Newspaper, visit this link.

Mir L Ali, Chairman of MFI says a few words about love.
Mir L Ali: Love, harmony, unification. These are the terms currently used; it is something we have to work on and that’s what our mission is all about. We say, ‘Love for all, hatred for none.’ His Holiness travels all over the world and talks about love. Love is sorely lacking in this day and age. Let’s hear His Holiness.

HH Younus AlGohar: Love stood out in our previous conversation and love will still stand out. Nothing supersedes love; that’s not the issue. The issue is: how to be able to love. We should ask ourselves, ‘What is stopping us from loving each other?’
Everybody knows about love; everybody wants to love, but what we see today in the world is hatred.
You cannot kill anybody for love. Obviously, when people are being murdered and slaughtered under the banner of religions, it is not love.
You cannot kill anybody in love, whether it is human love or it is divine love.
Steve Morell: The message of love that you have given is a broad message of love. Now let’s take it, say, from the time we spoke last. Have you noticed from the people that you speak to that they are getting attracted to what you say?

Well, they are all over the world, in many countries of the world. There are thousands of people who have actually been waiting to hear such a voice, such a message.  All those who want to learn to love they are adhering to our message and to our practice of spirituality. The scope is really high and people are becoming part of this struggle for peace and love.

Let’s assume that they have already been listening to and they have converted to what you say. Has there been a reversal in their ideas at some time? Or will they find that something else is lacking in their lives and just the mere concept of love is not enough?

The concept of love – if it is limited to phraseology and it is not practised under the principles of spirituality – then it is just fake; it is not love. Love is deeply rooted in the heart.
When we give people message of love, we are not just talking about love. We are actually offering people to learn the practical approach and methodology of love which will come from spirituality.
Once a person is spiritualised and the negativity from that person is diminished with the help of spirituality, then that person will always love no matter what happens. He will not go back to the same condition that he previously was in. So it’s not just the message, it’s not just about listening; it’s about adopting spirituality to become spiritualised.

Let’s talk about human frailty. Human frailty can also mean that they are looking for something more in terms of loving a person, loving a thing, etc. Have you experienced that in your teachings in your travels around the world? Maybe in Sri Lanka?

Spirituality is not just about love; it is a whole package. So many people in the world are suffering from different known or unknown ailments; obviously, the ailments are the result of the evil forces that we are not able to see.
But once you are spiritualised, you actually succeed to build up in you a spiritual strength which will protect you against those negative forces.
You become a better human being, you become stronger, you are not vulnerable to any evil thoughts and you are not vulnerable – either spiritually or physically – to anything alien to your soul and your body.

We have four great religions in this country: Buddhism, Christianity, Hinduism, Islam – and [others]. All these religions teach love. Is there something more that you can tell them?

Well, you can understand: all these four religions that you just mentioned teach love. Look at the result: are they really teaching love? Do we see love either in Sri Lanka, Pakistan or anywhere else in the world? There are mosques, there are temples; there are monks, mullahs and pandits – and they are all claiming to teach love but we don’t see love in practice. Something is missing in their message.

This is the point –

This is the point.

What really is missing?
What is missing is the spiritual system which will allow you to purify your heart.
The organ of love is your heart; if that is not activated, you will never learn to love. You will talk about love, but you will never appreciate love. You will want to be loved, but you won’t know how to love.
Somehow or other, something will come in between: your desires, greed, your ego or some other negative deterrent. You will never be able to love. In order to be able to love we need to purify the heart.
Buddhism, Islam, Hinduism, Christianity, Judaism – all these religions are pure religions but now spiritual system in them is lost. Buddhism stands for enlightenment. It’s not enlightenment of the body; it’s enlightenment of the soul. And when we say, ‘Enlightenment of the soul,’ it doesn’t mean we are going to put a bulb inside the soul and it will light up.
Enlightenment is all about [subtracting] the negative traits and bringing divine inside our character.
We are reading Quran, Bible, Bhagvad Gita and Vedas – but we are just reading it; nothing is going inside.
Our body is involved but our soul and our heart are not involved in the religions. This is why we are not learning to love.
Although the mosques and temples are filled with people who worship there, their hearts are empty. The negative/evil forces are having an enormous amount of effect on their mind and their souls.

Human frailty in any case someday supersedes whatever we want to think. So based on human frailty, how can we sustainably continue to have the concept of love – and loving somebody else and getting that person to love you?

From your birth until this age, a human being always needs a shelter, a helping hand or somebody to look up to when in need – and ask for help.

A human being is never self-sustained. He always in need somehow or other to seek help. When you are a child, you seek help from your mother. When you go to school, you seek help from your teacher. Even when you become mentor in life, you need help.
There are times in life when a human being would feel he is empty, incomplete and he needs some help from divine powers.
That is the case. You are always in need of some help. In most cases, nobody can help you; nobody is able to help you because you are in such a situation. Only the divine will help and we are teaching people how to be in contact with the divine.
For example, we have terrorists roaming about the world and committing all sorts of crimes. People do not know how to react; people do not know how to protect themselves.
The [army of] the United States of America has been in Afghanistan for more than a decade and still that can’t do anything about it with all the weapons, with all the might and power – because they needed God’s help. God’s help will come when you are in contact with God, when God is notified that somebody down there needs his help.

We should be able to make contact with God. Although in every religion we say, ‘We should say prayers and God will listen to our prayers,’ God has created a system and we have to adopt that system – only then God will hear your voice – and that system is spirituality.

You have been here for a reasonable amount of time and you have spoken to people here in Sri Lanka. What has their reaction been to the message you are giving?

The reaction is wonderful, tremendous. We are teaching people to love each other and uphold their integrity of being a Sri Lankan first, then become a Singhali, then become a Tamil and then become a Muslim. This is very important for them and they should be able to learn to respect each other’s religious or ethnic background. That will come only when your heart is purified enough.

So, you’ve had some responses?

Of course, the response is quite satisfactory and the future is bright. I mean, people who are part of our organisation in Sri Lanka – there are all sorts of people: Tamils, Singhalis, Christians, Buddhists – they all respect each other and they message is getting across different ethnic groups now.

Do you meet at a given time, given venue and how often do you meet?

Well, the physical meeting will only take place when I am in Sri Lanka. Otherwise I give a lecture every day in an online conference from London. People who want to listen to me join this conference online. When I come here programmes are organised, I participate and a lot of people come, sometimes in the thousands. I am invited by different organisations in Sri Lanka: by Christian organisations and by Hindu organisations. The response has been really good so far.

In your trip this time will you meet many people?

Yes, I will be meeting a lot of people this time. I am going to different cities for lectures.

And you will be giving the message of love?

Of course.

And you will be conveying to them exactly what we have discussed?

In more details, yes.

Love heals.

Yes, genuine love, not fake love: genuine love that your soul aches for.

You don’t need lectures from people to love others. You should have this genuine love, feeling and pain for others, regardless of their religious backgrounds. That will happen when the soul is awakened.
Genuine love that will come from your heart will let you forget ethnic backgrounds and religious backgrounds.
When you have genuine love in your heart, you will only see, ‘He is a human being, she is a human being. They need love, they need respect.’

When you don’t have genuine love, even when you feel love, there are a lot of things here and there which will make you stop. For example, ‘He is Tamil! He is Singhali! He is Christian! He is Buddhist! He is Muslim!’ There are so many things that roam about ourselves.

Can you be as eclectic as you are now in holding an audience, say for 30 minutes, maybe an hour, and having them completely enthralled in what you are saying? And once they leave they will take the message that you have just given them?

Whenever I spoke to people I was welcomed. People were really thrilled, happy and they rejoiced. This is why they come back again; this is why they are changing. I am not a magician.

What I mean is, you can be a catalyst for change.

I hope to do so. I have to bring about peace and change. You can’t change the face of the world in one day.

No, you can’t.

It takes time, it’s a long struggle. But I must tell you: global, spiritual revolution is on the way. And this world will become a place of love and peace.

That is coming?

That is coming for sure: a revolution where love will prevail.

Is there anything else you’d like to say?

That is enough if people understand it.

Thank you.

I am always pleased to see you.
