The ultimate happening May 8, 2010

It is interesting to note that each religion gives a different name to this event. The Koran calls it Resurrection and the reward takes the form of “gardens watered by running streams“. The goal of Hinduism is “self-realisation” and that of Buddhism “nirvana”, where the being feels a rain of bliss upon him. Christians call it “baptism” or “entry into the kingdom of God”. There too, the symbolic gesture of John the Baptist uses the element of water on Christ’s fontanel. In the same way the Pentecostal wind which descended upon the heads of the disciples marked their entry into a new dimension, the enlightenment of their awareness through the perception of vibrations, an experience which is in every way similar to the awakening of the Kundalini today.

who always forgives, is constantly satisfied,

whose decisions are firm and whose mind and soul is surrendered to God.

Who does not cause any evil, who is not afraid of others,

and who is as free of excitement as of worries and fears,

who is pure, efficient at work but yet not touched by it,

who gives up all the fruits of his acting, the good ones as well as the bad ones, (more…)
