HDE Gohar Shahi’s Shower of Love on Mexico

HDE Gohar Shahi’s Shower of Love on Mexico

The following is a transcript of Sufi Spiritualist Younus AlGohar’s speech during His Divine Eminence Gohar Shahi’s Shower of Love in Mexico. This monumental event was attended by over 2000 locals who were inspired by the message of HDE Gohar Shahi. The speech was preceded by introductions in Spanish by Tatiana Iridia Vargas Arana, the President of Messiah Foundation International, and Hector Iglesias, a community leader. The Dastar-e-Fazilat (Turban of Honour) ceremony was also carried out under the auspicious supervision of Sufi Younus AlGohar. Following Syfi Younus AlGohar’s speech, there was a spiritual healing session. To end this beautiful occasion celebrating divine love and interfaith harmony, attendees and event organisers alike joined hands to participate in the dance of love.

Love is lovely, but it needs sacrifice. When you love somebody, difficult times, difficulties, problems in life try to stop you. And sometimes, you need to sacrifice. But about God’s love, before God gives you love, he wants us to remove negativity from our body. The element of hatred from our body.

If we don’t remove hatred and negativity from our body, our love for God is not perfect.

In the path of love, God’s name is like a soap. God’s name must go inside the soul to clean it. When the soul is purified, we have pure love of God. Our message is love and it is not about any religion.

Questions and Answers with the Audience

Q: When was the precise moment when you felt that you wanted to stand up, go into the world and spread your message?

I was in school, a student. And one day, with my friends, we went to a beach. So I was sitting at the beach and it was a wonderful, sunny afternoon. The Sun was right on top of my head. So I was looking at the Sun and I fainted. I felt so peaceful. Then, maybe after half an hour, I gained consciousness. I was sitting at the beach and I was looking at my hands as if I don’t know myself.

I was asking myself, ‘Who are you? And why are you here?’

In that moment, I felt that I am missing from me. I was thinking, ‘I am here, but where am I?’

Then I felt that the real me is missing. I was always quiet. Then one day, somebody introduced me to Lord Ra Riaz. And then I found that missing link: love.

So Lord Ra Riaz found me for me.

Then I realised there must be many people like me who are looking for love. So I spread love – it helps me and I feel happy. When I go around the world and tell people about love, my soul becomes happy. That is why I am here.

That was a very beautiful question.

Q: I feel a raised vibration here and I really appreciate you being here. And coincidentally, it is my birthday and I have received the best gift ever today, full of love.

Happy birthday to you! Love is the best manifestation of God. May the Lord increase you in love and peace. We are also very happy for you.

Q: Is there any difference between spirituality and the soul?

The soul needs spirituality to become strong. The soul is like our body and spirituality is like food. When the two are together, love is perfect.

Q: Welcome to Mexico! I hope you are very conscious that you are in a very, very important place in the entire country. In the place where it is believed that there were gods here, which is very important for all Mexicans. For the past maybe 60 years, our country has gone through violence and many innocents have died. When we talk about love, we have to be conscious of trying to turn down all the violence that we are going through. I feel very happy and thankful that I was invited to come. I would like to hear the message you have for all of us, all us Mexicans. Because we really do not want anymore violence in our country.

Thank you. In my country, England, there is very little pollution because the engines are green and no smoke comes out from the exhaust pipes of the cars. If the smoke is coming from the car, it is not good for our health. So in England, they are very strict about the worthiness of the car. The car should not release any smoke. So in order to have clean air, and less pollution, we need to fix our cars.

Human beings are same. When the heart is corrupt, when the heart has violence, then we have corruption, hatred and violence in the country. If we want to remove violence from our country, our people have to correct our hearts. Remove hatred, negativity from the heart.

There are many things that contribute to having a corrupt and violent society. But the solution is one: purification of the heart, bringing love in the heart.

So now, politicians, religious people, churches, temples, mosques – people have the problem in their heart. That is why they are all fighting, because the heart is impure.

Muslims, Christians and Jews all say, ‘I am the best.’ But they have hatred in the heart. The best is one who has love in the heart. This knowledge of spirituality will help human beings learn love. If you spread this message of love and people learn to love, the society will improve. In order to improve the society, we have to teach love. We need this message to be taken to everybody. When they remove hatred and learn love, there will be no violence in our country.

Q: I am very excited, happy and honoured to be here. Your Holiness, I respect you very much. How come you are so full of love and surrounded by such lovely people? You so down-to-earth and don’t seem to consider yourself a very high person. Other ‘holy’ people don’t let anybody get close to them and you are such a simple person!

We are also very honoured to be here with you. My Master, Lord Ra Riaz, is the clue.

We are all human beings. We are equal. Love is greater than us. Thank you so much for your love. I love you all.

Q: Why do us human beings get so confused by all the feelings we have in us?

Because we are a compound living being – we have a soul and a body and both have different feelings. When our soul is not awakened, we are confused. So we need to awake our soul. When our body needs energy, we want to be touched. When the soul is awakened, the confusion will go away.

Removing Hatred from Within: The Goharian Method

Removing Hatred from Within: The Goharian Method

Removing Hatred from Within: The Goharian Method

The following is an excerpt from  Sufi Spiritualist Younus AlGohar’s recent talk with community leaders during his visit to Mexico.

Divine Love has different flavours. It is just like frozen yoghurt: there is a mango flavour, a strawberry flavour and others. In the same way, Divine Love has many flavours: a Muslim flavour, Christian flavour, Jew flavour, etc. We are giving people plain Divine Love without a flavour. The difference between our approach and the religious approach is very big.

Religion only focuses on its people. We focus on everybody.

We are not here to extend our organisation but we want to share our methodology of love. We represent God, so this method of love is without a flavour – not a Christian, Jew or Muslim flavour – only love.

Because of religion, people are fighting now. In every religion, there were two types of knowledge: the Knowledge of the Exterior and Knowledge of Spirituality. Now, because no religion has the Knowledge of Spirituality left – every religion has forgotten spirituality – they are learning to hate each other. We are just talking about spirituality without religion. We have people from all religions in our organisation.

Now, how do we obtain love? The word ‘love’ has always been grossly misunderstood. It is like asking somebody who is hungry to be happy and smile. Even if that person tries to smile and be happy, he will still look hungry. He will only become genuinely happy when you give him food. In the same way, we ask people to love, but our hearts do not know love.

We talk about love very randomly. We have taken it very easy. Even if we don’t mean it, we say, ‘I love you’. And then, the next minute, if we don’t like them, we say, ‘I hate you’. So we don’t understand love.

In order to understand love, first, we have to remove negative energy from our hearts.

Love is pure. If our heart is impure, we cannot love.

Our main focus is to remove negative energy from us. When negative energy is removed from our bodies, we will bring positive energy. Then, our love for God will flourish. One who genuinely loves God cannot hate anybody. He will love everybody. Sometimes we love somebody and we hate somebody else. Why is that? It is because we have love and hate together inside the heart.

Without hatred, the heart is pure. When there is only love in the heart, you cannot hate anybody.

We have hatred, evil, negative energy in our heart and at the same time, we are also trying to love God. We love somebody and we hate somebody else because we still have the ability to hate. First, our approach is to remove hatred and negativity from the heart. This is a condition from God.

God says, ‘I will only give you love when you remove hatred from the heart.’

For many years in our own capacity, in different regions and countries, we have been trying to overcome this factor of hatred from our life.

How is the Goharian Method Different?

In order to tell you how our method is different, I want to tell you a story. In England, we have painkillers that are opium-based. They mix opium with paracetamol, so when you have extreme pain, they give you relief. But it’s very addictive. I used to have very extreme pain because of migraines. Whenever I had a migraine I would take those tablets because they would help me feel relaxed.

I had been taking these tablets from a long period of time and one day, I discovered that I became addicted. I found out that addiction to these tablets was not good for my health. I promised myself that I was not going to take those tablets anymore. I stopped taking them but I realised that I was feeling very down and I became too weak. The withdrawal effects were tolling on my health. So I took those tablets again and I felt better. I started walking again. It is the mind that tells us that something is dangerous and we shouldn’t take it. My mind understood it, but my body didn’t understand it. Now I was in deep trouble. I knew it was dangerous, but I had to take it.

This is Method 1. Everybody is doing this. They say, ‘This is wrong. Don’t do it. Don’t hate anybody.’ All the religions say that. No religion teaches us to hate anybody.

The Koran says, ‘Don’t kill anybody.’ but Muslims are killing. The Bible says, ‘Don’t kill anybody,’ but [the Christians] are still doing it. One of the Ten Commandments is, ‘You will not kill anybody,’ but people are doing it. So our minds understand that one thing is good and another thing is bad – and we should not do the bad thing – but there is something inside us that forces us to do those things. When something is inside us forcing us to do things, we feel helpless.

Method 1 is weak because Method 1 is about our understanding. We understand we shouldn’t do this, but it happens nevertheless when something inside us is forcing us to do it.

What is Method 2, our method? Let’s go back to the story again. I realised that those tablets were very addictive and if I kept taking them, they were going to destroy my liver and my kidney. I wanted to stop taking them but I had become addicted. So then I consulted with a doctor in Virginia, USA.

He advised me, ‘You should go to a hospital. They will operate you and do minor surgery.’

They implanted something in my stomach. That implant in my stomach stopped the germs of the tablets. The effects of the tablets stopped going into my bloodstream. That implant removed all the effects of the tablets from my blood and I was cured.

In a similar way, we understand something is bad and we want to stop doing it, but the negative energy inside us forces us to do it.

Our method is to spiritually remove that negative energy from the body.

When the negative energy is removed from the body, even if somebody tells you, ‘Let’s go do this bad thing,’ you will not feel like doing it. This is a practical approach. Method 1 is mind over matter in which you think, ‘Okay, I have decided I won’t do it.’ For some people, it works – but some people have more negative energy in them so it doesn’t work for them. Method 2 works for everybody.

The Divine Staff

The Divine Staff

The Divine Staff

This is the first in a series of talks by Sufi Spiritualist Younus AlGohar on the Knowledge of the Divine Mediation.

Let me start from the very beginning. God sent 124,000 Prophets and Messengers and 313 religions were established. Then, in the end, the last species of Adam was introduced; only he was awarded the spiritual knowledge with which man could find union with God.

Before the introduction of spiritual knowledge, man would worship God physically and verbally. In that worship, no communication or interaction with God was involved. So, one would worship, worship and worship. There was no impact or effect of that worship on his personality; it would not benefit him in terms of improving his character or quality of life. He would worship and that worship had been recorded; made an account of. He would be rewarded for this worship on the Day of Judgement, that is all. But with the arrival of the Last Adam, spiritual knowledge was introduced and a newer type of worship was introduced which was to be carried out by the souls.

This worship, which was to be carried out by the souls, was also declared to be medicinal. Meaning if the souls are engaged in worship, it would not just be recorded in the Book of Your Accountability that would be presented to you on the Day of Judgement, but also, any amount of worship carried out by the souls would work as a divine medicine to heal and strengthen your souls. This is spiritual nourishment and the names of different attributes of God were like nutrients that one would need in order to qualify to be a friend of God.

So, this concept of a newer type of worship was amazing because you would start reaping the benefits of this worship while you are still here in this world.

On contrary to this, Adams and their progenies prior to the Last Adam would worship and in return, nothing would be granted to them in this phenomenal world. The only thing that would be granted to them would be granted on the Day of Judgement.

So, 124,000 Prophets and Messengers were sent altogether. Out of all these Prophets and Messengers, Messengers established 313 religions. Out of 313 religions, only 3.5 religions were established by Grand Messengers. In other words, God has been more merciful and generous upon the children of Abraham than anybody else. These religions – Islam, Christianity, Judaism – in the eyes of God these are the best religions that could [connect one to God].

Adam introduced how to connect with God and how to interact with God. That’s all. But with the arrival of Abraham, this concept came that you can befriend God! This was a revolutionary message because, never in the entire human history, would it have crossed the minds of many million human beings belonging to many thousand different species of Adam.

With the arrival of Moses, a divine chit-chat was introduced: messaging and voice calling with God! Moses was given this knowledge with which he elevated himself in spirituality so much that he was able to speak with God. When God would speak to him he would hear God’s voice physically. This was like a ‘voice call’ introduction with God.

Then came Jesus. When Jesus came, Jesus said, ‘All that you have been granted before is not worthy for me to talk about it. What I can give you, not even Adam, Abraham or Moses can think of.’

It was something really, really great. Then he went back and then came Prophet Mohammad. Before Prophet Mohammad, only voice calls were introduced with God.

With the arrival of Prophet Mohammad, the ‘Divine Snapchat’ was introduced: you see me and I see you. You speak to me and I will speak to you. You make mention of my name and I will make mention of your name. That was the culmination of the knowledge.

The Types of Knowledge

There were different religions and everybody would follow his/her respective religion. They were given three different types of knowledge:

  1. The Knowledge of the Exterior. It is all about how to control and purify your body, how to live a balanced life and how to behave with other fellow human beings.
  2. The Knowledge of the Heart. It was about how to revive, awaken and spiritualise your heart and make it worthy of interaction with God.
  3. The Realm of Reality. There are certain spiritual stations in the esoteric realms that you cannot access with the divine energy you generate with your inner faculties. You need a powerhouse and that powerhouse is a Spiritual Guide [who has the] the Knowledge of Reality. It is the Realm of Reality in which you do not carry out any worship or invocation. Your Spiritual Guide with his power spiritually journeys your souls from one point to another; this is the Realm of Reality.

With these three different types of knowledge, all these three religions (Christianity, Judaism and Islam) progressed. Sufism flourished in in the Abrahamic Faiths. Christian spirituality is very famous.

The Divine Staff

The fourth knowledge, the Knowledge of the Divine Mediation (Muarifa) was introduced to those only who have obtained union with God.

The Knowledge of the Divine Mediation was granted to those who, following the spiritual path, arrived at the station of the Divine Splendour and they have witnessed the divine beauty. This Knowledge of the Divine Mediation was given to those who have seen God.

In this knowledge, God teaches them not to discriminate among human beings on the basis of their religious backgrounds. When God delegates somebody to be a Spiritual Master, then God commands them not to discriminate among human beings for any reason – whether it be their complexion, race, religious or cultural background – provide them with equal opportunities to find God.

Those who acquired this knowledge are the ones who say, ‘Whether you are a Christian, Muslim, Jew or Sikh, come – let me connect you to God.’

Those who were not given the Knowledge of the Divine Mediation, they somehow or another were confined and restricted to their religious boundaries. Like a Muslim Saint would only render spiritual grace to the Muslims. However, those who were given this Knowledge of the Divine Mediation would not see any difference among human beings.

They would only care [and think], ‘If this person is expiring and his heart aspires to see God, then, they would let him go and see God.’

These are the problems that God has to face every day. God is not a Muslim God or a Christian God. God is just a God – he is God – to him all are equal. If he wants to guide anybody then he would guide anybody, whether that somebody is black, pink, white, yellow or brown and whether that person is a Muslim, a Christian or a Hindu. God is above everything. God is above Islam and Christianity.

God can guide anybody through anybody.

This Knowledge of the Divine Mediation was only granted to selected friends of God. Those who were granted this knowledge only focused on guiding people without any reservations or prejudice. They would not want to see whether that person is a Christian, a Jew or a Hindu. Those who did not have this knowledge would feel the restraints. They would feel that they are confined. They could not think beyond their religions. They are not wrong, but they are confined to their boundaries.

However, those who have been taught The Knowledge of the Divine Mediation understand what it means to be from within the Divine Staff. You work for God, you do not work for Islam, Christianity, Judaism or Hinduism. You represent God.

You are from the Divine Department. So, even if you had a Christian or Muslim background, now you are working with God. Now, you will only understand God’s problems.

Those who follow a particular religion, their religion’s perimeters are very small and they have very little room to manoeuvre here and there. Those who work for God, they have God’s policies. The Department of Guidance is with God. Nobody else has the authority to guide anybody.

God says to Prophet Mohammad, ‘O Prophet Mohammad, it is not the case that you will love somebody and you can guide him also.’ – Koran 28:56

Here, God is saying, ‘You can love somebody but it doesn’t mean that you can guide those that you love also. This is my department. Only those will be guided that are guided by me.’

‘I guide the hearts.’ – Koran 64:11

When God guides you, he will not guide your nose [or eyes, ears, etc.]. He will choose a spiritual organ in your body and that is your heart.

God has this department. In this department, he has individuals from different religions. However, when they join God, their loyalty with their religions is no more.

They are more loyal to God than they are to their own respective religions because they have been blessed by God to be part of his Divine Staff.

On a lower level, God advises the Messengers to have their own staff through which guidance can be articulated. Those are the saints who follow religious law. That is different.

The mighty friends of God – the elite ones who are in very close proximity of God; who have been delegated by God – they would spiritually appear anywhere to a follower of any religion and would guide them.

Now, this is the knowledge that we are now trying to elaborate, explain and share with our people. This is so that they can understand why we – people from Pakistan who have Muslim names – are talking about guiding everybody. They might ask, ‘Is this some kind of a Godly scam or something? No, it is a type of knowledge which directly makes you part of God’s Staff.

The Goharian Creed

Then, onwards you only follow the Divine Policies, not the policies of your religion. For example, many different people in Pakistan – especially the Anjuman Sarfaroshan-e-Islam, when they do not understand His Divine Eminence Gohar Shahi’s teachings, they put all the dirt on me. They fail to understand HDE Gohar Shahi’s knowledge and they fail to understand what is the Divine Project that HDE Gohar Shahi is projecting.

Then they start saying that, ‘Younus is an agent from the Christian world, an agent of Jews, he is a disbeliever, an enemy of Islam.’

No, I am not an enemy of Islam or any religion. It is just that for some time, I followed the policies of Islam. Then, when I was introduced to Sufism, I adopted the Sufi policies.

When HDE Gohar Shahi said, ‘You are now my representative,’ a new set of policies were handed to me! I follow the policies of His Divine Eminence Gohar Shahi.

In every religion, there is a set creed and they go by their creed. HDE Gohar Shahi also explains what the Goharian Creed is.

Every religion will want to blow their own trumpet, like, ’I am the best!’ Some Muslims do not get tired claiming that they are the best. The same problem is with the Jews. Christians have their own philosophies. But every single religion cannot see beyond their own religion.

To Muslims, Prophet Mohammad is the greatest. To the followers of Moses, Moses is the greatest. Moses talked about the Ten Commandments, out of which Jesus rejected four. Jesus said, ‘I don’t recognise them.’

So, everybody thinks he is the best and greatest of all.

Then HDE Gohar Shahi touches upon this subject. HDE Gohar Shahi says, ‘Do you want to know what I think about it? Do you want to know what my belief system is?’ And then HDE Gohar Shahi says, ‘Let everybody from every religion stand in a line – Muslims, Christians, Jews, Sikhs, Hindus, everybody, and ask God, “Who do you want to see?”’

HDE Gohar Shahi is not saying, ‘How do I feel about it?’ HDE is saying, ‘Let them all stand in a line and then ask God. You shouldn’t make any claims. Ask God, who he wants to see!’

And then before His Divine Eminence Gohar Shahi tells us who God is going to see, He tells us that at night time when you look at the sky you will see many shining stars. Maybe you will know the names of one, two or three stars. But you can see even those stars that are unknown to you because they are shining. If they were not shining you wouldn’t be able to see them.

In a similar way, God looks at your heart when he wants to see you. If your heart is enlightened, God will see that heart.

Whether you found enlightenment of the heart through Islam, Christianity, or Judaism or you got the enlightenment without any religion – because your heart is enlightened, God will look at your heart and see your heart. This is Gohar Shahi’s creed.

According to Muslims, if you praise something else other than Islam you are an enemy of Islam.

However, I have come to know that the message that HDE Gohar Shahi is parting with is greater than any religion. Why? Because HDE Gohar Shahi is aiming at the enlightenment of your heart. Not through the vigorous practice of your religion for 40-50 years. All you need to do is show the willingness of your heart and find a representative of His Divine Eminence Gohar Shahi in any of your countries.

There are many human beings, now, who represent HDE Gohar Shahi in Pakistan, India, Bangladesh, Canada, the United States of America, Australia – in many countries of the world. They are being trained in light of the fourth knowledge, the Knowledge of the Divine Mediation. They are asked not to discriminate among any human being on the basis of their religion, culture or country. To guide everybody and provide them with equal spiritual opportunities is the aim.

This is my first talk on this subject which means I am going to be talking on the same subject for many days. Many more different points relating to this subject will spur out.

We recognise the entire human race as one family. They may be Muslims, Christians, Jews, Hindus – whoever they may be, we are not concerned about it.

The only thing we are concerned about is, ‘Is he one of those that must be guided? According to the Divine Policy, is the one who is destined to be guided by God? If he is the one, then we don’t care who he is – Christian, Hindu or a Jew – what matters is God’s will.’

If according to God’s will you must be guided then you must be guided no matter who you are.

The Voice of Love and Peace: HDE Gohar Shahi
21st October 2018|ArticlesStatement

The Voice of Love and Peace: HDE Gohar Shahi

The Voice of Love and Peace: HDE Gohar Shahi

The following is a message from Younus AlGohar about his Spiritual Guide, His Divine Eminence Gohar Shahi.

HDE Gohar Shahi’s voice is the voice of love and peace. HDE Gohar Shahi calls for mutual love, respect for humanity, the true understanding of the religious beliefs and tolerance for others religions and faiths.

It is quite disappointing that some of the Muslims in Pakistan do not appreciate our efforts towards building a cognitively healthy and tolerant society.

The religion of Islam is a form of the divine bounty that caters for the spiritual and societal needs of the world. Ironically Islam has been gravely misunderstood by thousands of Muslims and non-Muslims alike.

It would be utterly undermining the calibre and potential of the religion of Islam if it is confined to a ritualistic aspect only. Islam is far greater a religion than assuming it to be a set of beliefs that direct us to worship God only.

Primarily we aim at inviting the Muslims to stop being divided in dozens of sects. And the reason for this division is lack of inner knowledge and enlightenment of the heart. The hearts are pre-occupied with Satan. And the Satan is playing under the labels of Sunni, Shia, Wahhabi, Ahmedi, Deobandi denominations. None of the above labels are part of the Ummah that the beloved Prophet Mohammad PBUH founded some 1440 years ago.

Today, as we speak, all these labels are religiously slashing throats of each other and they declare it Jihad.

Even the Islamic world is divided in two major fractions: Sunni Islam and Shia Islam. Bloodshed in Syria and Yemen is the prime example of this division.

As for the common Muslims, they swiftly put the blame on the West whereas the Muslims emperors and politicians are the real culprits and are responsible for sectarian conflicts in Syria and Yemen. Pakistan has been subjected to sectarian hatred and bloodshed for over a decade now. My friends, the West is not your enemy, the enemy is among you and within you.

We promote love and peace and we invite people to adopt spirituality so that we manage to enlighten the hearts thus get rid of this evil division within Islam and become united again to be known as Ummah of the Beloved Prophet PBUH.

This is the voice of love, peace, justice and God. And this is the voice of HDE Gohar Shahi.

Why Pakistan Fears His Divine Eminence Gohar Shahi
23rd January 2018|Articles

Why Pakistan Fears His Divine Eminence Gohar Shahi

Why Pakistan Fears His Divine Eminence Gohar Shahi

Do not ever believe in what you hear on the grapevine.

Disinformation spreads faster than information.

According to the Koran, the purpose of the human species is that they become God-conscious. Religions provide people with spiritual mediumship and pave the way for seekers to find a way to God. When religions were corrupted, the knowledge of spirituality — which was the backbone in every religion — became nullified. It vanished from the religions due to which people were left distant from God.

Today, we are in an era where nobody thinks of reaching God. In fact, nobody even thinks of God. They are lost somewhere in the ritualistic mirage of religions. It is a sad story.

His Divine Eminence Lord Ra Riaz Gohar Shahi has shown Himself to the world the most bountiful, merciful and ultra-beneficial to humankind. HDE Gohar Shahi has struggled enormously well to elevate intellectuality and spirituality among claimants of different religions. HDE Gohar Shahi provided food for thought to the people who seemingly struggle to find God.

Spirituality was once the backbone of every religion without a name. Today, HDE Gohar Shahi has signified the significance of spirituality in our lives.

Muslims have, somehow or other, developed their understanding to be more sceptical than those who appreciate the spiritual truth. The element of extremism has always existed in Islam since the very beginning. It is such a pity that the early caliphs of Islam became victims of Islamist extremism. Ali, the cousin of Prophet Mohammad, was murdered by an Islamist extremist. Umar bin Khattab was murdered by Islamist militants. Usman bin Afaan was also killed by Partisans of Ali (Shiite).

People who believe in the same religion — whether they believed in that religion 1400 years ago or today — their level of intellectuality has decreased rather than increasing. They’re quite sentimental. People do not like to be guided correctly. They have this tendency of going with the flow. If you are a sheep in the herd and you see that all the sheep are going in one direction, you do the same.

HDE Gohar Shahi is the only universal spiritual teacher who has shown to the world more courage, gallantry and bravery than it was required of His Divine Eminence.

HDE Gohar Shahi went to every single faction among the sectarian elements in Pakistan, and — right in their faces — he told them, ‘What you practise is not Islam.’

He further said, ‘This is Islam. When you practise this, you will not like to call yourself a Sunni, Shiite or Wahhabi. The true Islam will connect you with God and his messenger. You will take pride in being a true disciple of Prophet Mohammad.’

People who never wanted to know Islam and who wanted to use Islam as a fake guard on their bodies at the same time — vehemently, they disapproved of this realistic version of Islam which consists of spirituality.

You cannot reach your reality without spirituality because your reality is your spirit. The first thing that you need to do is become self-conscious. You need to know who you are. If you say that you are a Wahhabi, Sunni or a Shiite, this is not you. Your reality lies in the awakening of your soul.

People with low cognitive calibre were unable to understand and comprehend the ultramodern spiritual sciences presented by His Divine Eminence Gohar Shahi. HDE Gohar Shahi did not present any spiritual channelling because He Himself is the ultimate spiritual channel.

A spiritual guide is a spiritual conductor. Conduction of divine light is the principal cause of him being a spiritual conductor.

This is a strange phenomenon by which His Divine Eminence conducts spirituality and divine light — and HDE Gohar Shahi Himself is the destiny of all souls and spirits.

It will take one to know God before he is able to know His Divine Eminence Gohar Shahi. Those who do not understand God should not attempt to know who HDE Gohar Shahi is.

Sectarian elements in Pakistan for the last 35–40 years have been trying their best to suppress HDE Gohar Shahi’s teachings, to halt HDE Gohar Shahi and hinder in His mission. They have done their best on an individual level on a governmental level. However:

The truth of HDE Gohar Shahi is like a spring. The more you suppress it, the more it goes up.

This alone is one of the greatest miracles. You cannot quieten the voice of the truth. You cannot quieten the sound of Ya Gohar.

This is especially true when people have experiences in which their religiosity and spirituality were restored in the fuller meaning of the phrase. They found their ultimate goal in form of HDE Gohar Shahi’s blessings.

So on the one hand, people have experiences whereby they will return to eternal life, their hearts were enlightened and they were free from different physical and spiritual ailments.

On the other hand, there is speculation all over the world among Muslims that HDE Gohar Shahi and His teachings are not in accordance with the Koran.

Well, so what? The teachings of Jesus Christ are not in accordance with Koran. Do such people dare call him a cheat? The teachings of Moses are not in accordance with the Koran either. The Koran is not the ultimate source. The Bible, Koran and Torah all came from the Guarded Tablet.

The creator of this universe, God, is the ultimate source of knowledge. Even after the revelation of the Koran, he can bless anybody with more knowledge than in the Koran — this is called Ilm-e-Ladunni.

This is the type of knowledge which is neither part of the Koran, Bible, Torah, Talmud or Psalms of David; yet it is as truthful as all these celestial books because it comes from God.

Ilm-e-Ladunni is the knowledge that comes directly from God.

It is more powerful than the revelations [in the celestial books] since they come from the Guarded Table and Ilm-e-Ladunni comes directly from God.

The book penned by HDE Gohar Shahi, The Religion of God (Divine Love), as it has been declared by HDE Gohar Shahi Himself, is the masterpiece of Ilm-e-Ladunni.

How to Bring Out the Best in People

How to Bring Out the Best in People

Try to be always kind, do not try to be always right. Sometimes you have to be kind even if people are wrong, so do not go after righteousness.

Sometimes, a man is not what his character is. Sometimes, a man is not what his sins tell you. Sometimes, a man is buried deep under the burden of his sins and habits that he cannot get rid of. However, inside his heart, he is very kind — a gentleman.

So do not always try to judge; sometimes, you have to forgive. You must do this in order to bring the best out of people.

When some people sit with you, they bring the worst out of you. However, a spiritual man is one who will bring the best out of you. He will bring the best out of you because you yourself cannot bring the best out of you [on your own].

Unitarian Spiritualism: The Transcript

Unitarian Spiritualism: The Transcript

The following is the transcript of Younus AlGohar’s speech delivered at the Unitarian Spiritualism Conference in Toronto, Canada. The speech was preceded by a few words from social media star and TV host, Waqar Zaka, and the chairman of Messiah Foundation International, Mir Liaqat Ali.

Waqar Zaka

My personal experience with [Younus AlGohar] is that this is a method of bringing spiritual elements in your heart. I think it is amazing that sir has a method that actually creates that atmosphere where you can go anywhere in the world, but still your heart will be connected to God. I think this is a great service to humanity.

There is a lot of confusion about what [spiritualism] actually is, especially in Pakistan. People often mistake it for being another sect [of Islam] and many other things. My job as a reporter is to present the facts. Most of the time, people misunderstand things which they don’t want to understand. My only advice is that please use social media in such a way where you do not hide your good deeds.

Mir Liaqat Ali

I have been asked to introduce HH Younus AlGohar. I did spend 10-11 years in his company. Very intently, I observed His Holiness. I don’t know whether you realise it or not, how fortunate we are that this knowledge and blessings and connection with divinity comes from the main source.

For example, when you flip the switch and turn the light on, the source of energy is coming from somewhere else. Similarly, we are getting connected through His Holiness to the powerhouse.

Here is a chance that you will have divine connection. Ask as many questions as you can to understand. His Divine Eminence Gohar Shahi has left a wide window open for us. It is a matter of your priorities. This is your chance to be connected to the powerhouse.

His Holiness has worked very hard and travelled from the far east – Osaka, Japan – to the far west – Pakistan, India, Europe, etc. Here is your chance to connect with divinity.

Younus AlGohar, CEO of Messiah Foundation International

Good evening everybody. I am always very happy to be here. I would like to share with you some of the selected observational points that I have learnt throughout my spiritual career.

I was born and bred in Pakistan and obviously had a different attitude towards life – being born in a country where everybody thinks he is right and, unfortunately, nobody is right. When I came to live in England, I had difficulty in understanding others and difficulty in explaining to them that I was right. I lived there for 27-28 years and I remodelled my thought process.

I have learnt that the most difficult job is to tell somebody, ‘I want to correct you.’

The moment you say this to them, they will ask you, ‘Are you correct?’ And then we enter into a new debate. When I say  that I remodelled my thought process, this is exactly what I meant. I change some of my words that I used in the past – for example, ‘I want to correct you.’ I deprived myself of the luxury of saying these words. I want to share something with you – that’s what it is.

We are unattended in this Planet Earth. We think God is watching over us but we do not know whether we are [actually] being watched over. We feel as if we have been abandoned and stranded. We are just doing what we feel like doing. We claim to love our parents, children and we claim to love God, but this is just a claim. We talk about love and peace, but we just talk about it; we do not know what love is.

Every single human being has a different philosophy of life – and he is dead sure that his philosophy is right and everybody else is wrong.

Religions have expired. They were very good, but now religions have become a problem; they do not serve the purpose anymore. They are dead bodies; like a body without a soul. If the religions were still intact and serving the purpose, then Christians, Jews and Muslims would love each other. They wouldn’t fight. They wouldn’t kill each other.

I come from a Muslim background. I studied the Koran. I studied the Bible and Torah too. But I would like to share with you one particular story from the Koran.

The Story of the Last Adam

Adam’s body was being made in the Paradise and the angels raised an objection. They asked God, ‘You are creating Adam again*? Again, he will do the same thing that he did previously – bloodshed, hatred and nothing else. Why are you created Adam again?’

This was the objection raised by the angels because they had seen what Adams had done previously: bloodshed, spread of hatred, killing, massacres, carnage – all in the name of God. All in the name of the religions.

But God this time was so confident because he came up with a newer idea. He was going to do something which he did not do before. On this occasion, he was going to award Adam with extraordinary knowledge of spirituality.

Prior to the coming of the Last Adam, the progenies of all other Adams were not given the knowledge of spirituality. They would simply worship God.

They were not given the knowledge of spirituality with the help of which they could awaken their souls or strengthen their souls. They were naive of spiritual meditation. They were not able to make astral projection. They were not able to make spiritual journeys.

But for the Last Adam, God has something els in mind. He told the angels, ‘This time, I am going to grant this Adam some magnificent knowledge: knowledge of spirituality. A type of knowledge in which he would be able to retrieve divine energy from my different names.; God asked the angels, ‘If you are aware of that knowledge, tell me now.’ They said, ‘No. You never told us this knowledge. How would we know it?’

The principal idea was that when this knowledge would be granted to Adam he would be able to spiritualise his life, strengthen his souls and be able to spiritually connect himself to God. He would be so consumed with the divine environment with the presence of God that he would only spread love. He would only love his fellowmen. He would never kill or hate anybody. He would become sublime.

The concept of jealousy comes when there is no equality – when one is superior and other is inferior. But when everybody is equal, there cannot be a concept of jealousy.

The concept of jealousy came from the Devil. This happened when he realised that with this new knowledge of spirituality, Adam has become so eminent – even if he tried, he would not be able to compete with Adam in spirituality. Because he did not have spirits and this knowledge of spiritual is for those who have spirits. This was an utter disappointment for the Devil.

However, now when spirituality became the mode of love and peace, and pride for humanity, Adam descended on Earth. Before he could teach his progeny how to become sublime, his sons fell out and Abel killed Cain – the same story again. But those who were able to obtain the knowledge of spirituality really become sublime. After Adam, Abraham came to this world. He was awarded a bit more spiritual knowledge in comparison to Adam. With his power and knowledge, he thrived more with love. Subsequent to Abraham came Moses. Then Jesus – and Jesus brought about the methodology of divine love. Then the last prophet, Prophet Mohammad, came and opened the gates upon humanity to see God; however only a little portion of humanity were able to see God.

Now we are living in the 21st century. Religions – how they were practised when the religions were established is just a story. We have not met either Adam, Abraham, Moses, Jesus, or Prophet Mohammad. We have just heard about them. The source is books. We have never been in direct contact with any of the prophets or God. So what we know about God, prophets and religions – our source is very weak. We do not know how many times the religious books have been adulterated and to what extent they have been altered.

Our total dependency and reliance about the religion and God is on the books – and somebody might have fiddled with the books. This approach has failed; you can never come to know the truth by the books.

His Divine Eminence Gohar Shahi has come with a marvellous, magnificent, brilliant idea of putting men directly in the audience with God.

When the throbs of your heart are synchronised with the name of God – and as a result of this –  divine energy starts to be produced, you feel the warmth of God’s light and love. Within the perimeters of your heart, you are in direct contact with God.

In order to love God, believe you me: neither do you have to be a Muslim, Christian or a Jew. All you need to be is whoever you are because God’s love is for everybody. Whoever wants to love God, God will definitely embrace such a person.

Our struggle is to tell you how to learn this spiritual method. You do not need to go to university or a college; it is not a one-year diploma. It doesn’t take too long. The only time you will need somebody’s help in spirituality is right in the beginning when God’s name with its spirit is implanted and cultivated in the soil of your heart.

This implant of God’s name is the principal gateway to loving God.

It’s like a plant: you sow a seed, keep watering it and one day it will turn into a big tree.

According to a Prophetic Tradition, ‘The Kalima (Word of God) is like a seed. When that seed has been planted in the soil of the heart and you keep watering it with divine energy, it will turn one day into a big tree – the roots of which will lie in your heart. And the branches of which will cover even the imperial dark.

When this comes from a cleric, it is a piece of knowledge. It will become a reality when it will come from a Sufi heart because he has the ability to turn that God’s name into a tree in your heart.

It doesn’t take long; it’s a simple transfer. I was just thinking how money is sent from one place to another and how people are afraid of money laundering. One day people will come and say, ‘There are some newly introduced divine laws – God-laundering.’ God has been transferred from one heart to another.

This is a spiritual transfer. This is what we do.

Divine love is something that you, involuntarily, are not capable of. Your heart must learn to love. It is very unfortunate though, that in order to hate somebody, you do not need to learn. People are so obsessed with hatred and everybody is a champion. If you ask them, ‘Did you go to university, do you have a master’s degree in hatred?’ they will say no – but they know how to hate. But love? You need to learn it.

You don’t need to learn to hate. But you need to learn to love. Because love is precious; God doesn’t want every Tom, Dick and Harry to have the luxury of love.

When you learn to love and you acquire it, you become an honest lover. Between a boyfriend and girlfriend, the love is not really pure; they can cheat on each other [easily]. Similarly, every single religious person is cheating on God every time he sets foot into a mosque, church or temple. They’re cheating on God because they are saying the name of God and worshipping God, but they have something else in their hearts; their intentions are polluted. They are not honest with themselves. They are not honest with God.

God doesn’t just want to make you worship. God wants to love you and God wants to be loved by you.

There must be individuals sitting here who must have known the feeling of being loved. The moment you realise somebody loves you – somebody has been following you – the very fact that you are being loved is wonderful.

When somebody says to you, ‘You look wonderful,’ you go back home and look at yourself in the mirror. You know yourself, but you want to see your face again when somebody tells you that you look beautiful. This is called recognition.

You are only worshipping God; God wants to know that you love him. The only information that people receive about God is through books. [Muslims are told], ‘Go to the mosque five times a day. If you don’t, you are a non-believer. Fast in the month of Ramadan. If you don’t, you are a non-believer.’ This is all true, but then again, what is the purpose of the religion? The purpose of the religion is a connection with God.

It doesn’t really matter what religion you follow. Christianity, Judaism and Islam are monotheistic religions and they all come from the same source: they are all Abrahamic faiths. Jews, Christians and Muslims believe in the same God. We have everything today: the Bible, Torah, Talmud and Koran. There are many thousand mosques all over the world, beautifully built. There are huge churches, synagogues and temples. But are we connected to God? No, we are not. If you are not connected to God, then the purpose is lost.

We are in the business of connecting people to God. The rest is secondary issues.

The primary issue is a connection with God.

Questions and Answers Session

Q: Once your heart is activated with God’s name, how do you maintain the number of times the heart does mention God?

A: It is not in your hands. The number of times a heart can say the name of God is 144 000 times a day. That is the maximum. Only God will decide how many times your heart should be allowed to say God’s name. This is how it is because God is almighty. It is up to him how much love he wants to grant you. In front of God, we’re all beggars and beggars can’t be choosers.

Q: If you wish to love, God has to grant it to you?

A: God is our creator and he knows what dose of love should be given to our soul. If you take an overdose, you will become a Malang (someone intoxicated in God’s love).

Q: You wouldn’t believe how things went in my favour so that I could come here. I came to Toronto from Windsor to meet you (370 KM). I believe that me being here [is a sign that God] has granted me more love. How do I get enlightened?

A: During the daytime, you are more inclined towards the mundane aspect of life so the pace of the heart gets slow because you are busy with other stuff. But during the night when there is nothing for you to do and you are more focused on your heart, that is the time when your heart performs more of its Dhikr (invocation of God’s name).

Q: How do I reach out to Prophet Mohammad? I want to be enlightened and see God. When I started meditating, I was in so much pain.

A: People often talk about the Third Eye. With the help of the Third Eye, people can see things which they are not normally able to see. There is no Third Eye [per se]; there is only an eye. That eye will open up once your Carnal Self is completely purified.

The Carnal Self (Nafs) is at the bellybutton. It is the Ego. When this soul is completely purged and purified, your eye is open forever. What you cannot see with these two physical eyes, with that, you will be able to see everything. Even prophets and angels; everything that you cannot now see with the physical eyes.

The Third Eye is actually the purification [of the Carnal Self]. When this happens you will be able to see, but it takes time.

*His Divine Eminence Gohar Shahi reveals that the history of mankind did not begin 6000 years ago with Adam and Eve. The Adam and Eve we know from the Torah, Bible and Koran was the final pair sent by God. Prior to this, different Adams were sent into different localities around the world – which is why the skin colours and temperaments of different nations vary. Learn more about the true history of humankind in His Divine Eminence Gohar Shahi’s book, The Religion of God (Divine Love).

God’s Point of View

God’s Point of View

God’s Point of View

The following is an excerpt from a speech Younus AlGohar delivered to a gathering of spiritual leaders in Mexico before the Amor Universal Conference.

Lord Ra Riaz Gohar Shahi said, ‘Those who are spiritual – who are Godly – are always happy. They never look sad.’

When I went into the depth of knowledge pertaining to God, I found out that God is more romantic than Romeo and he wants his friend to act like Juliet. However, when we become spiritual and religious, we become so serious.

When it comes to becoming a spiritual person, there should not be any difference whether that seeker is a woman or a man. There are so many people in the world who talk about spirituality; however, their definition of spirituality is very fake.

The point I want to raise today is how do we, the creation, think – and how does God think? What is God’s point of view? How does he think about us and what does he want?

Both parties should be aware that there is a relationship between them. For example, if you love me, you should tell me. If I love you, I should I tell you. If I love a woman, and everybody else knows but her (or vice versa), what is the point?

So in a similar fashion, if we want to love God, we should tell him. If I want to tell a woman that I love her, but she is not here, then it is like talking to the walls. When you are in a mosque, church, temple or synagogue and you say, ‘God, I love you,’ you are telling walls.

The temples, churches, mosques, etc. are not the true houses of God. In these worship places, we do some sort of worship. That’s it.

The true house of God is the heart.

There was a man at the time of Moses. He heard that Moses spoke to God on the Mount of Sinai. So he went to every mountain and yelled, ‘God, where are you?’ There was no reply. When there was no reply, he became really depressed. He said, ‘God, I looked for you everywhere. You spoke to Moses on this Mount of Sinai. I came here and called out your name, but you didn’t reply.’

Then, [sometime later], it was his calling. he was about to die. The angels who were taking out his soul asked him, ‘Why are you so sad?’

He said, ‘I wanted to speak with God all my life. I wanted to love him all my life, but I couldn’t find any way.’

Then, in that last moment, the angels said to him, ‘Speak to God now. He is listening to you.’

He said, ‘God, where are you? I looked for you everywhere.’

God replied, ‘You looked for me everywhere but you forgot yourself. I was in your heart.’

So we need to find out this heart’s door and how to open it.

This is the important organ in our body, whether it is about our physical life or whether it is about our relationship with God.

People want to love God. Some people want to love God while being a Muslim. Some others want to love God as a Christian. Every religious person wants to love God within their religion. This is why everybody loves him differently.

But now, God wants them to love him with uniformity. All should love him with the heart.

Are You Crazy?
24th September 2017|Articles

Are You Crazy?

Are You Crazy?

Sanity and insanity have to do with one’s thought process. Sanity is considered to be a balanced thought process according to the standards of ethical values and norms of the society.

Anything practised by a majority of people for an extended period of time, at a certain stage, it becomes normal. Normal is something that everyone likes and practises. Something that people, as a majority, do not practise, is considered to be abnormal.

If every single person in the world is crazy, then being crazy is normal.

For example, if every member of the nation speaks loudly — and they scream and shout — and they consider it normal, what can you say?

So sanity and insanity can be described, however, there has to be a societal, spiritual or intellectual mirror in which you can judge the norms of sanity.

Sometimes normal things, according to your common sense, appear to be abnormal in the eyes of others who have different standards of ethical and moral values.

Learn more about how the different sources of moral values affect our worldview in the May edition of the Messiah Herald: Save Society with EQ.

In the country where I was born, if somebody is naked and walking on the street, people will call him a mad person. However, in Europe it has become a fashion; [some] people are demanding to be allowed to walk around nude. There are restaurants in Central London where the diners eat naked. They’re all well-educated people; even then, they do not think that if everybody is naked, it will create a chaotic hygienic problem. I really don’t like this idea, but then again, so what? If somebody else wants to be naked, I don’t care; it is their life and they have the right to live it as they want.

So we don’t really know what is sanity and insanity anymore, because people have different standards nowadays.
