Introduction

Today you will find the  word Ki (Chi) cropping up no matter where you look. You will see it on advertising hoardings, on posters, in newspapers and magazines and in the brightly coloured advertisements festooning the trains. Ki is regularly featured in certain magazines in articles with enticing  titles such as “The Mysterious Ki Does It Exist?”, “The Miraculous Ki Cures All Diseases”, “The Secret of the Supernatural Power of Ki Revealed”, etc. “The Mysterious Power of Ki” by Kouzo Kaku  p.1. But what is Chi? Where does it come from? What are its origins? How is it that tapping into the power of Chi can enhance physical prowess by allowing the practitioner to perform superhuman feats? Can cause the emission of Chi energy through the “Red Sand Palm” technique with devastating results? Allows the Martial Arts practionar through summoning Chi to invulnerably absorb deadly blows with minimal injury i.e. the infamous “Steel Jacket” “Iron Shirt” “Iron Crotch” and “Iron Ribs” techniques? Can be projected and transmitted over vast distances spanning hundreds of miles? Can result in the notorious Death Touch ie Dim Mak, (ancient art of striking vital points of the body engineered to cause knock-out, death or delayed reaction)? Can be exchanged between people i.e. Clapping palms and passed on into food, water, and objects? Can induce trance like and altered states of consciousness during which the practitioner experiences involuntary body movements (i.e. Wu Qin Xi and spiritual kungfu) and demonstrates cognizance of forms never before practised? Can miraculously heal & ameliorate the health of the critically ill (even in instances where modern medicine with its advancement & deep insight cannot avail) and is said to be a general panacea for all diseases? Can be used to control an opponents mind freezing them up, and can be used to predict and forestall an opponents intended (not actioned) moves in battle through ki enhancing Zen mind control techniques? Can result in amazing precognitive abilities to perceive events before they occur, e.g. Master Morihei’s (the founder of Aikido) legendary  ability to dodge and ward off bullets by seeing flashing lights of ki coming at him, similar beliefs were also credited to the Boxers Rebellion of the late 19th century whose adherents claimed a magical imperviousness to both blade and bullet through breathing and movement exercises (chi)? Can through enhanced meditation transform one’s state of mind into a monistic (“all is one”), if not an outright pantheistic (“all is God”) outlook? Why is its practise often integrated or associated with polytheistic idolatrous rituals, such as worshiping idols (eg statues of Buddha, Lao Tzu, Bramer Vishnue and Shiva), false deities, deceased spiritual or ancesterial beings (i.e. wafu) and the approbation of past masters, as well as being used as a vehicle to propagate idolatrous ideologies? And can even lead to unusual energy sensations and paranormal activity at advance stages i.e. aura diagnosis, telepathy, telekinesis, remote gong (i.e. remote viewing), unleash latent psychic ability (clairvoyance and clairaudience), and even reports of levitation? And yet those practicing the internal arts number in the tens of millions daily, despite having know discernable idea of its precise make-up and the deleterious consequences that can accrue through its practice i.e. namely the medical condition known as “Qiqong Deviation Syndrome” (today a medical diagnostic term widely used throughout China), Qigong Psychosis, Qigong Mental Derangement (also called being infatuated (Ru Mo)), evil qi (xie qi), turbid qi, pathogenic qi, malignant qi, stagnant chi,  and its paranic equivalent of “Kundalini Syndrome” (collectively referred to as the “Dark Side of Chi”). If you are a practitioner of the Martial Arts, in particular the Internal Arts, ever studied the Five-Animal System of Spontaneous Chi-Kung, then this article is imperative reading for you and the sinister malign reality of Chi Kung will become all too evident. The paragraphs and comments you are about to read are derived from my own experiences, close observations and study of the Martial Arts. Inadditon I have also used other sources and references where I deemed it relevant to cogently present my case, producing both an authoratitive and objective analysis of the subject matter. My ultimate purpose is to publicize the dangers of the insidious esoteric and exoteric energies of the east e.g. Chinese Qigong, Indian Yoga, Japanese Zen & Rieki and Transcendental Meditation. Throughout the rest of this writing the terms parana (Indian), tai chi (Chinese), ki (Japanese), rei-ki (Japanese), Hei Gung (Cantonese) & qi gong (Mandarin)  will be used synonymously to mean Chi.

Reality of Chi

I have been a practioner of the martial arts for over a decade, and that also includes spontaneous Chi Kung. The Chi they utilize is not a harmonious, benevolent, all prevailing, invisible energy/force which flows binds and permeates throughout the Universe, but rather a sentient life form unto themselves (nor are they discarnate spirits of the dead as is commonly believed in the west) which religions around the world and communities & civilizations throughout history have commonly termed Spirits, Jinns or Demons. Many people around the world have been severely mentally affected to their detriment through the study of such systems which often involve (as will be examined here on in) clearly defined movements/forms or involuntary actions. Once the jinn’s enter the host through the relevant nerve, pressure or acupuncture points that flow in channels/meridians, they then inhabit the host and exercise great influence, often in many instances mentally impairing the individual or even cause death. At the latter point the only means of redress then becomes undergoing a religious Islamic Exorcism. I am speaking from my own experiences with this phenomenon and not from hear say. I would like to publicize the dangers as much as possible and expose its reality.

Chi in China

Qigong (“exercise of vital energy”) is a Chinese healing system based on trance. It consists of meditational or movement exercise, or both, induced by use of a highly culture syntonic set of suggestions based on the concept of qi (vital energy). It has been estimated that about 5% of China’s 1.3 billion people practise qigong, so this may be the most common form of “hypnosis” practised globally. Chinese hypnosis can cause qigong induced mental disorders by  Sing Lee, associate professor of psychiatry BMJ v320 (7237) Mar 18, 2000
Indeed the concept of Chi-Kung dates back over 4,500 years, along with the rest of Chinese Medicine, which has a long and recognized pedigree, slowly evolved into a highly refined art Today. Infact within China alone there are over three hundred Chi Kung systems, each individual style has its own specific training methods. Qigong is ostensibly a training system which helps to generate a strong flow of Qi (Internal Energy) inside the body and then circulate it through the entire body. Many Martial and Non-Martial styles of Qigong training have been created in the last 4,000 years. The most famous martial styles are: 1) Tai Ji Quan 2) Bagua 3) Xingyi 4) Liu He 5) Ba Fa These are considered internal styles (Nei Gong or Nei Jar in Chinese), as opposed to “external” styles like Shaolin, because they emphasis working with Qi. The best known Non-Martial atyles, which emphasis the enhancement of Qi circulation to improve health are 1) Wu Qin Xi (Five Animal Forlics/Sport) 2) Ba Duan Jin (8 pieces of brocade) 3) Da Mo’s “Yi Jin Jing” Muscle Change Classic 4) Shi Er Zhuang (12 postures) “Tai Chi Theory & Martial Power” by Dr. Yan, Jwing-Ming.

Dao Yin & Five Animal Frolics (Wu Qin Xi)

The much-vaunted Five Animal System of Martial Arts or more commonly known as “Spontaneous Chi-Kung” invented by the famous Chinese physician, Hua Tuo, who lived in the late Han dynasty, is one of the most visible displays of demonic influence & possession within the martial arts practiced today taught throughout China and abroad. It is practiced not as a set of prescribed movements but rather as an escalating state of involuntary spontaneous movements including muscle tremors, twitching, unusual breathing or vocalizations and gyrating movements sending the practioner into a induced trance like state. The various postures of the Five-animal Play are related to the five elements & their corresponding solid organs. The Five-animal Play has five movement types, each named after an animal:

  1. ‘Xian Men’ Tiger Style
  2. ‘She Cheng Qi’ Deer Style
  3. ‘Geng Sang’ Bear Style
  4. ‘Fei Chang Fang’ Monkey Style
  5. ‘Kang Cang Zi’ Bird Style

The movements called the “Five Animals” begin with simple swaying, which some cynics say occur anyway when you stand still for long periods, an effect called Postural hypo tension. But more convincing effects become apparent when you move to the next stage. The Tiger is related to the lungs and the element metal, the other organ/animal/elemental correspondences are as follows: The Deer is related to the liver and wood, the Bear to the kidneys and water, the Monkey to the spleen and earth; and lastly, the Bird is related to the heart and fire.. Alarming scenes of people quite violently flapping their arms about, jumping up and down and hooting like crazed animals are to be observed abit like a zoo gone mad. The Chi can also be triggered by the ignorant instructor that has developed a powerful Chi field by transmitting the energy he has cultivated into another person. This is often done by the instructor holding the hands of the student as the jinn’s pass through the finger tips or by pointing he’s fingers at their foreheads at the position commonly known as the “Third Eye” (Hinduism & Buddhism faculty of insight often associated with paranormal activity and Islamically position at which the soul (rou’h) extricates the body). The finger nails serve as motorways for the jinn’s facilitating ease of entry and exit. Yet all this can be done while the instructor is some distance away from the student controlling them like a puppeteer or rather telekinesis, pulling students in or pushing them away with just a gesture. More convincingly, most of the time they are unaware of he’s gestures and often looking in the other direction.    Inaddition to the organs and meridians it is said our body also has three centers or collection points.   The jinn aggregate in three centers or collectons points within the human body, these are called Dan Tein, which translates as field of elixir.    “Inside our body these fields are a places for cultivation. As the name suggests the cultivation process is similar to the way crops are cultivated in a field.” Five Animal Frolics Qi Gong by Franlin Fick p.15. Except it is jinns & not crops the practionar is hoarding.   “These three centers (Dan Tien) are also associated with three different types of energy. These three energies are called the Three Treasures: Jing (relates to the physical body and is located 2 inches below the navel), Qi (relates to the mind located in the middle of the chest), and Shen (relates to the spirit or conciousness located in the head).” Ibid. p16. “The Three Treasures are all related and can support and tranform into each other. They are actually the same substance at different levels of refinement.” Ibid. P.16. In other words, as the Chi moves upwards from the lower organs it becomes more potent..   “The body is the same as a container that must be filled from the bottom up.” Ibid p16. The jinns control thus becomes complete when the Shen is affected.   The induction of jinns has dramatic affects upon the human body “Qigong bolsters the primal, reproductive vitality, or jing; it potentiates the daily bioelectrical energy, or qi; and it refines the light of our radiant spirit, or shen.” Five Animal Frolics For High Energy Vitality and Well Being by John Du Cane p.1. Upon the submission of each of the five stages the jinn gains a foot hold over the host germinating into every corner and then brining its possessions with it just like a human would move he’s/her furniture into a new dwelling. The jinn flows through its newfound host like blood, incrementing its control. The result is the successive infiltration of each organ, limb and then ultimately the brain, brought under the wing of the jinn. This is the most dangerous part of the body the host/Chi Kung practioner can give away. Many students at this stage report seeing bright lights, coloured formations and golden balls (similar to Hindu diksha golden balls). The Jinns while being an unseen creation do have it in their power to grant humans sight of them and the world of the unseen, this is what happens when chambers of the brain are opened up to facilitate chi expansion. Once the brain is tampered with and the jinn’s is able to bring it under its dominion the host then experiences gradual mental impairment/decline in the form of memory loss, head aches, unusual energy sensations moving around the head/brain, declining mental acumen etc climaxing in a state of madness. It should be noted that many people around the world are today in such a state as a result of practicing the Five Animal System, hence I cannot stress it enough to stay away from these systems or else there will be dire consequences for yourself.   The (Chinese) proverb “Like running against the claws of the five animals” is a reference to five animals which could cause turbulent insanity and great disturbances” Chinese Black Magic Dr Ong Hean Tatt p.125. When severe it is known as zou (“run”) huo (“fire”) ru (“enter”) mo (“devil”); this means that the flow of qi deviates from the jing luo conduits and becomes fire, as a result of which a devil (jinn) enters the person.   As to how the jinn can possess or enter human bodies in The Jinn & Human Sickness by Dr. Abu’l-Mundhit Khaleel ibn Ibraaheem Ameen the author quotes another Shaykh:

Shaykh Muhammed Al-Haamid says: Because the jinn have light bodies (that are not dense), there is no rational reason why they should not enter the bodies of the sons of Adam, and there is no text which contradicts this idea. For that which is light may run through that which is dense, like air which can enter our bodies, or fire which runs through coals, or electricity which runs through wires. p.51..

by will

It is no concidence that every spiritual system  that has some influence with the spirit/demonic  realm– from Buddhism to yoga to Native American – has a Five Element theory underlying it (some use 4 elements + center). And “certain animal groupings, especially around the number five, are not auspisicious, and often related to black magic” Chinese Black Magic by Dr Ong Hean Tatt p.101. But unlike the others it is the Five Animal System that teaches  how to directly experience the 5 elements in the body as five intelligent streams of biological, psychological, & spiritual consciousness.   Elements of the oldest forms of chi kung in China Five Animal Plays & Six Healing Sounds were found inscribed on silk fragments in the famous Mawangdui tomb discovery, dated to 216 b.c. In these silk fragments the animals and their sounds were clearly being used for medical purposes. The five animals was originally a kind of a shamanic dance, a way of getting in touch with animal spirits for self-healing and empowerment. They believed these animal spirits could connect you to the underworld and the supernatural world (i.e. Jinns and demons). If you could harness them, you could be healed or gain insight and magical powers from the unseen world..    “Believing also that the highest healing skill is to teach others to heal themselves, Hua Tuo set out to create a complete self-healing system that anyone could use to stay healthy or cure themselves of most ailments. Synthesizing and refining a set exercises based on a vast body of ancient shamanic and folk healing knowledge, he created The Five Animal Frolics.”  Five Animal Frolics For High Energy, Vitality and Well Being by John Du Cane p.2. The five animals evolved within Taoist (Daoist) culture to represent the five spirits or the intelligences (wu jing shen) of the five major human vital organs. It was believed that is was here the human underworld is actually hidden, right inside our body and is not in some abstract dimension of our psyche. Hence there are five animals, one for each of the five elements.    This connection between spiritual training and shamanic influences is undeniable (shamanism being defined as a member of certain tribal societies who acts as a medium between the visible world and an invisible spirit world and who practices magic or sorcery for purposes of healing, divination, and control over natural events). It is well illustrated by one of the world most famous Qigong proponents in the west Michael Winn ( also a former two term President of the National Qigong (Chi Kung) Association of America ) in hes Five Animals eBook section Shamanic Power Animals Live Inside Human Body he writes:

“The evolution of spiritual training in ancient China was marked, I believe, by the absorption of shamanic powers and techniques into a more advanced, all inclusive alchemical science. The wisdom of the Daoist alchemists was that the entire universe, in its essential form, is contained within our human animal body. They realized, we can stop chasing after ourselves outside of ourselves. It is all right here, under our very nose. So the shamanic journey into “other realms” evolved into the Taoist notion of an expanded energy body. The journey became increasingly internalized. You don’t need to travel to get to the underworld, you carry it around with you, right inside your body. “

The author further expounds on this point:

“With the Five Animals, we are really exploring the mystery of the body, and in particular the mystery of our vital organ spirits, our own internal animal spirits with magical powers. The six healing sounds are a way of communicating with particular frequencies of chi in each organ, and the spirit of each one of our internal animals. “   The five elements and their associated heraldic animals represent an ancient knowledge of how heavenly forces could be manipulated to affect earthly destinies. The central ritual of Taoist magic consists in the ability to call up the forces of these spirit generals and indicates that the heraldic animals are indeed the essence of supernatural powers.
Ong Hean-Tatt, The Chinese Pau Kua, An Expose, Pelanduk Pub, Malaysia, 1991 Stefan Verstappen in hes article “The Shamanic Origins of Tai Chi”, When investigating the origins of tai chi , a journey which took him to the Golden Triangle (a roughly drawn remote from civilisation geographic area that overlaps the borders of three countries: Myanmar in the west, Laos in the east, and Thailand in the south), upon meeting a shaman, he writes:

The Shaman or medicine man still plays an important role in the life of the isolated villages. In 1987 the author visited with the Ka-ren in one of the more remote areas of the Triangle. There he was fortunate enough to spend an evening with a Shaman and witness his spirit dance. It was there that the connection between this tradition and that of the Chinese martial arts seemed to meld. Ibid Chapter 1 p.1

He was showing us the movements taught him by his Shaman, which had been passed down through the tribe for generations. The Shaman moved strikingly similar to a Tai Chi master. Ibid Chapter 1 p.1

Prehaps most conclusively the author even begins to questions himself and tie the link more definitively between Tai Chi and Shamanic practices:
According to his book, Shamanism: Archaic Techniques of Ecstasy, Eliade recounts that a Shaman must from time to time perform a ritual known as the Spirit Dance. Well known among native Americans, accounts of this practice also date back 4,000 years in Chinese records. During the Spirit Dance, the Shaman moves in imitation of his animal spirit to call on its powers. It is said that the animal spirit actually takes possession of the Shaman’s body and imbues the Shaman with superhuman strength. This principle is also mirrored in the martial arts. Performing the movements of Tai Chi is said to generate a spiritual energy — Chi. Like the Shaman’s infusion from his animal spirit, Chi also bestows superhuman strength. Could it be that performing the stylized movements of a Tai Chi form is based on the ancient Shaman’s practice of dancing the spirit? Ibid. Chapter 3 p.2..
“ The  shaman’s power rests in his ability to throw himself into a trance at will. The drums and dance simultaneously elevate his spirit and conjure to him his familiars, the beasts and birds, invisible to others, that have supplied him with his power and assist him in his fight. And it is in his trances of raptures that he performs his miraculous deeds.” Chang 1983 Art Myth and Ritual , the path to political authority in ancient China p.69 The practise of magic by shamans was known by the Chinese since ancient times, known as wu or hsi, and lady shamans as chu. As their practises gained more appeal they assumed functions of priests and were known as sai kong. Part of the paraphernalia shamans were involved in concerned the communication rituals between heaven and earth this required bronze vessels with their animal images.   “Also, to work their Black Magic sorcerers of old could allegedly change their form into that of animals” Groot, de , J.J.M. The religious system of China 1892 V p.822 Walsh, Roger in The Spirit of Shamanism, J. P. Tarcher, Los Angeles, 1990 writes

The conditions that induce these (altered) states include such common experiences as isolation, fatigue, hunger, and rhythmic sound and thus are likely to be re-discovered by different generations and cultures. Since these states may be pleasurable, meaningful, and healing, they are likely to be actively sought and methods of inducing them remembered and transmitted across generations.

In the older martial arts traditions of China, Burma, the Philippines, and Malaysia, there are systems of self-defense that are based upon the combat movements of either real or mythical animals. The better known styles originated in China and include Tiger, Leopard, Lion, Crane, Eagle, Phoenix, Snake, Dragon, White Ape, Monkey, and Praying Mantis, to name a few. Yet it is in the grand ballet of the animal styles that the connection is closest to the ancient origin of moving meditation.
Every style has its own folklore regarding its origins. Often they are like parables that teach moral and philosophical lessons as well as the style’s origins. But there is also a pattern to many of the tales. From the perspective of cultural anthropology such folktales may contain an ancient memory of an even older tradition, which Stefan Verstappen describes as that of the “Vision Quest.” Common to Shamanism, the Vision Quest is a ritual whereby a young warrior first undergoes a period of training after which he sets off alone into the wilderness. He must bear the hardships of isolation while fasting and meditating until he has a vision. The vision usually takes the form of an animal that reveals certain secrets. This animal then becomes the warrior’s kindred or guardian spirit and shares his powers with the warrior. For example, if the visionary animal was a fox, the warrior would take on the qualities of cunning; an eagle would bestow far sight; a bear strength, and so on.   As to why jinns often take on the form of animals and come across as animal spirits using them as a vechile to possess or misguide people, In The Jinn & Human Sickness by Dr. Abu’l-Mundhit Khaleel ibn Ibraaheem Ameen writes

the jinn have special abilities… such as their ability to take on different forms and appear in the form of animals such as snakes, cats (tigers), dogs etc p.45.

Animals are their favourite attire, historically jinns have often appeared as animals (eg the notorious black dog). Animals also serve as perfect disguises for the jinns without having to reveal their true identity and nature.  This often causes many people to either supplicate & approbate animals as divine deities or to become embued with their characteristics and abilities, this is largely done because when the jinn take on their form  they demonstrate and transfer by possession super normal abilities such as magic, empowerment, healing, and great strength.   Jinn also have many similarities to animals, notably jinns are much stronger and faster  than humans just like many animals & and see in a spectrum of light that humans can’t, just as many animals can. It must also be noted many animals unlike humans can see jinns.   Also according to Abu Tha’labah al-Khushani said: “The Messenger of Allah Muhammed (pbuh) said: ‘The jinn are of three types: a types that has wings, and they fly through the air; a type that looks like snakes and dogs; and a type that stops for a rest then resumes its journey.” [Shaykh al-Albaani said in al-Mishkaat (2/1206, no. 4148): al-Tahhaawi and Abu’l-Shaykh reported it with a saheeh isnaad]   Hence the first type that has wings and can gain flight and mimic birds (i.e. crane & eagles etc), and the second type like snakes and dogs can mimic reptiles and four legged animals (i.e. snake, tiger, bear etc) and lastly the third type thats stops and resumes journeys can appear as humans for example the Budhhist and Taosit ancesterial beings that have appeared through the aeons to influence earthly events many centuries after they were deceased.   It also causes many people to engage in foolish rituals or acts of worship dressed as animals to ward off so-called “spirits”, such as the fang-siang-che ceremony of the Chou Li or the Tao No ceremony which are examples where by an inspector of the region along with 12  persons or even a priest would at times of calamities caused by irregularities in the heavenly and earthly fields impersonate various animals to drive away demons and diseases before making a sacrificial offering.   “It is also likely to form the basis of the lion and dragon dances currently practised in modern times during the Chinese new year.” Chinese Black Magic by Dr Ong Hean Tatt p37

In the fifth century BC there is described the ritual whereby the “inspector of the region” would dress in a bear’s skin and accompanied by twelve other attendants each dressed as a different animal, they would perform the “Bear Dance” which was meant to drive away evil spirits.    Waterbury, F., Bird Deities in China, Artibus Asae Publishers, Ascona, Switzerland, 1952 Animals also form the Chinese Zodiac system of Astrology & Divination which literally means “Circus of Animals” and consists of 12 animal divisions of the following respectively: signs, solar, lunar and inner animals. Each individual therefore is allegedly according to the theory characterised by 4 animals derived from the Zodiac and influencing their lives from birth until death.

Kundalini too is depicted as an animal serpent coiled into three and a half circles, with its tail in its mouth, and spiralling around the central axis (sacrum or sacred bone) at the base of the spine. The awakening of this serpent demon or Jinn (Sakti) and manifestation of its powers as it ascends through the spinal chakras to unite above the crown of the head with Siva, the so called pure consiousness pervading the whole universe, is a primary aim of the practise of Kundalini Yoga.

Cases of problems associated with Qigong practise are so common today that the term  Qigong deviation syndrome has become a diagnostic term and is now widely used in China .

“A series of physiological and psychological effects occur in the course of Qigong training, but inappropriate training can lead to physical and mental disturbances. Physiological effects include changes in EEM, EMG, respiratory movement, heart rate, skin potential, skin temperature and fingertip volume, sympathetic nerve function, function in stomach and intestine, metabolism, endocrine and immunity systems. Psychological effects are motor phenomena and perceptual changes: patients experience warmness, chilliness, itching sensation in the skin, numbness, soreness, bloatedness, relaxation, tenseness, floating, dropping, enlargement or constriction of the body image, a sensation of rising to the sky, falling off, standing upside down, playing on the swing following respiration, circulation of the intrinsic Qi, electric shock, formication, during Qigong exercise. Some patients experienced dreamland hallucinations, unreality and pseudohallucination.” Psychophysiological Reactions Associated with Qigong Therapy by Xu Shenghan Shanghai Mental Health Center , Psychiatric Department, Shanghai Medical University Fall 1994

The premise that only incorrect performance of qigong can lead to some form of somatic or psychological disturbance is incorrect because it dismisses the fact that many practionars where taught qigong under correct tutelage by highly trained  masters (sifu),  despite this still experienced qigong deviation type symptoms.

“The clinically common symptom of Qigong deviation is the uncontrolled flow of “Qi” (energy) in the body. All of the cases has such complaints as “Qi moving and dashing within the body” or “Qi dashing and rushing into the head,” often stagnating somewhere and leading to pain, with some strange perception in the lower abdominal area called “Dan Tian” (elixir field.) The incessant movement of the vital energy may give rise to an unusual malaise as well as various physical symptoms such as headache, insomnia, discomfort, abdominal distension and others.” Ibid

Qigong deviation syndrome has characteristics very different from other psychotic disorders for example it does not meet the criteria of schizophrenia, affective disorders and neuroses. A commissioned clinical study of 25 psychotic cases (by Brief Psychiatric of a qigong deviation group) against 50 neurotic cases (by Hamilton of a control group) revealed that there were significant differences between the two groups.  Despite this it is still however included in the Chinese classification of mental disorders. What the erudite psychiatrists, psychologists and medical fraternity as a whole are in effect implying is that this is a mental illness with no precedent  and unlike all others, exhibiting characteristics totally alien to conventional psychotic disorders and infact confusing what is clearly a spiritual problem with that of a physical sickness.

One qigong practitioner termed Mr A for anonymity was a 22 year old unmarried worker.   “He began to learn himself from Qigong books the “Wu Qin Xi” (exercise mimicking the gestures of five animals) on November 26, 1984 for the treatment of lumbago. Ten days later, he suddenly had “special cenesthesiopathy” with “Qi” flowing adversely in the head and abdomen. When “Qi” flowed into his head, he felt fullness of head and chest distress. When showing a Qigong gesture, he suffered agony and anxiety, even attempting to commit suicide. Two hours later he was sent to Shanghai Institute of Qigong for help. Guided by a Qigong master he recovered. The next day he became delirious and claimed that he could hear the voice of evil spirits; he prayed to Buddha for help but only lost his self control.“ Ibid Another qigong practitioner termed Mr B a 44 year old married worker.   “He learned on his own the “He Xiang Zhuang” (crane-flying Qigong), another school of Qigong in February 1984, attempting to treat his ailment, the hypertrophy of cervical vertebra…..Later he turned to learn the “Long Men Five Flow,” another school of Qigong. On the third morning he suddenly began to cry and dance, still doing Qigong exercise in bed. He thought that his dead mother would be brought back to life whereas he would become a ghost. He said that he could see Buddha and God, and he believed in religion.” Ibid In both cases as in most of the other documented cases there was no history of personal or family psychiatric  problems, normal behaviour before studying qigong, and only experiencing symptoms during or after qigong exercise.

Prof Xiangcai Xu (a world authority on TCM) in hes book Qigong For Treating Common Ailments writes,

“Deviation of Qigong refers to the adverse reactions that can occur during the course of Qigong exercise. The practitioner may feel uncomfortable and may not be able to regain balance. Such reactions can be physically and mentally harmful.” p.85

The author goes onto highlight similar symptoms which can result from the deranged flow of Qi such as

“Dizziness, vertigo, panic, chest distress, short breath, uncontrolled movement of the extremities, tremor of the body, continuous, uncomfortable flow of Qi along a particular channel or area.” Ibid p.85 ,  and the symptoms of “pain, heaviness, sore and distending sensation, and sensation of compression” Ibid p.86 resulting from the stagnation of Qi and the Statis of blood.

Some  interesting but largely ineffective corrective measures are also mentioned such as massaging acupuncture points (especially those along a particular channel eg Du and Ren), concentrative mind control techniques, hand gestures

“and the manipulative procedure of pushing, pulling and quivering to emit Qi so that channel movement is induced. Outgoing Qi is applied along the channel route to guide and normalise the functional activities of Qi and to dredge the channels.” Ibid p.87

The author also touches on the problems associated with the leaking of genuine (Vital) Qi, whereby Qi moves from its point of origin of its own accord in or around the body. This may lead

“to wasting and weakness of the extremities, a pale grayish and dark complexion, vexation, failure of mind concentration, spontaneous perspiration, night sweat, seminal emission, insomnia, and reluctance to speak or move.” Ibid p.87, with similar solutions to the above to bring Qi back to its original resting place such as:

“Treatment with Outgoing Qi: Press and knead the following points: shensu (U.B. 23), Mingmen (Du 4), the Dantian and Guanyuan (Ren 4). Using the Flat Palm hand gesture along with pushing-locating manipulation, emit Qi towards the point Mingmen (Du 4). Then use pushing-guiding manipulation to break through the channel and guide Qi to its origin. If Qi leaks from the external genitals, anus, or Huiyin (Ren 1), guide it to flow upward to the Middle Dantian. If Qi leaks from the sweat pores, close the pores and guide it to flow back to the Urinary Bladder Channel and the Lung Channel. If Qi leaks from the nasal cavity, treatment with outgoing Qi should focus on dredging the Lung and the Ren Channels.” Ibid p.87

Indeed this a common trait we find, that Qi often moves around in its host as if it possesses it own consciousness and free will, only bought back to its origin from its deviation within the body, through rigorous mind manipulation techniques, because of the maxim that “energy follows the mind”.

In hes discussion about the negative side effect of Qigong practise, Prof Xiangcai Xu ends by drawing attention to

“a phenomenon of mental derangement (also called being infatuated (Ru Mo)), may appear in some practitioners who have regarded the illusion emerging during or after Qigong exercise as true. This condition often leads to mental derangement such as uncommunicative and eccentric disposition, a withered and dull expression, apathy, and trance. Some even lose their confidence of living and want to commit suicide.  Others suffer from continuous auditory and visual hallucinations, which are similar to that seen in psychotics.  These symptoms are known as the ten devils and are described in works of Zhong and Lu’s Taoist Doctrine (Zhon Lu Chuan Dao  Ji). The ten devils include: the devil of six thieves, the devil of animals, the devil of aristocracy, the devil of six passions, the devil of love, the devil of adversity, the devil of saints, the devil of fight, the devil of amusement with women , and the devil of sexuality.” Ibid p.88.

The only cure the author offers is to terminate Qigong practise, and “turn a deaf ear to the auditory hallucination and a blind eye to the visual hallucinations, and pay no heed to any illusions.” Ibid p.88.

When experiencing adverse affects Qigong related energy is often referred to as evil (xie) qi. It is said to have ten thousand manifestations each with its own true (zheng) qi, and if it permeates in the host the true qi becomes perverted..

“When malignant qi dwells in a person’s body, it is called infestation. A result of systemic imbalance, depletion or exhaustion in the patient. The malignant qi may gain entrance if….he has suddenly come into contact with emanations from the dead or has collided with a ghost or demon.” Chinese Magical Medicine by Michel Strickmann. (from Ch’ao’s On the Origins & Symptoms of Diseases completed in 610).

Such spiritist concepts have not gone without attention by the Chinese. Infact Chinese philosophy has tried very hard to explain the metaphysical realm of the jinn, but sadly this has been in non-sensical language that lacks any authenticity as is not based on any divine source but rather fairy tale, superstition and magic. For example the invasion by Gui.

The Gui are the earthly spirits: the Chinese character for Gui has a hook on it, showing that its nature is to attach to the earthly realm. The Gui are in duality with the Shen (the heavenly spirits). Unique, distinct spirits (Gui) slip in and live through you: often the effects to the host are not intended but are the result of the Gui being there & turning you into a suitable vehicle. Gui can be benevolent or malevolent: some want to be somewhere else; some do not want to be elsewhere; some want to leave the host; others do not want to leave.

“The expression used for the procedures employed by the malevolent dead was ‘plaint from the tomb’. This term described the origin of the pathology, but the pathology itself or its physical symptoms were designated by another term, ‘ghost (or demon) infusion’ or ‘ghost-infestation’. The first syllable denoted not only ghosts but also demons, and sometimes lesser deities as well. The second syllable means, literally, a ‘pouring-in’. The spectral pathogens visit their victim and stay on & on.” Ibid Chinese Magical Medicine by Michel Strickmann.

The Shen divides into five manifestations, three take the heavenly aspects (Shen, Hun, Po) & two the earthly aspects (Yi, Zhi). But of the heavenly trinity two have the earthly spirits within them (the ancient Chinese belief that a person is composed of the spiritual soul i.e. the 3 Hun & the corporeal soul i.e. the 7 Po). Hence the Chinese proverb “The demon is afraid of man 7 times, while man is afraid of the demon 3 times”. Thus it is believed a strong Shen will shield a person from all evil forces. On occasion, the Po themselves can pervert the person and/or call in other Gui.

It is said by Chinese tradition, the Gui from a deceased person at a true death or ‘the entering’ the Shen rises out of the person’s body on the wings of the Hun. The Shen (the Divine) goes home immediately, while the Hun hover above the body and if saintly may live for centuries, benevolently affecting the daily lives of their offspring, while the Po remain in the body as it rots quickly and merge with the earth. (The Yi & the Zhi have no form without the heart & so dissolve instantly.) In cases of unnatural death, however, the Po may escape & roam the world, looking for another vehicle/host to cling again to the earthly realms.

Dangers of Eastern & New Age Spiritualism :- Chi, Ki, Prana, Mana, Kaa, Shiatsu, Orgone, Kundalini, Yoga, Meditation, Healing, Psi balls, Reiki, tantra

And yet the cultivation of Chi energy is not solely practiced by the Chinese. As with the fighting arts, many other races would have had their own methods of tapping into the ostensibly “Cosmic energy”. One of the principal features of New Age practice is the belief in a universal or cosmic energy circulating throughout the body, this energy can be manipulated for various spiritual or psychological purposes, and it is even palpable.When we look back through history, there are many accounts of the use of energy Chi recorded in various languages and cultures at different times and places. Meditation, self-observation, self-remembering, breathing exercises, chant, tai chi, qigong, yoga, sacred dances, group exchanges, & somatic therapies are all such examples. Energy “manifestations” are a principal characteristic of meditative experiences as well. Although it is widely accepted in the East that psychic powers are a natural by-product of meditation, the vehicle through which these psychic abilities are produced is often viewed as a from of “cosmic” energy. The gentler arts notably Tai Chi, which is a Chinese form of rhythmic callisthenics made up of a comprehensive series of gentle physical movements and breathing techniques with the aim of inducing a meditative state (very subtle by comparison), is also similarly demonic origin. There are many other versions of inducing spontaneous Chi flow, most use relaxation and concentration on energy flow within the body. Others use concentration on major acupoints of the body that correspond to the nerve plexus’ and/or chakras (energy centers).   A major study on meditation asked respondents to check characteristics of their in meditative experience. One description was: “I felt a great surge of energy within me or around me.” Karlis Osis, et al.., “Dimensions of the Meditative Experience,” The Journal of Transpersonal Psychology, vol. 14, no. 1, 1982, p. 121. Meditators whose experience could be described in this manner were to check this item. Significantly, it received the highest “loading score” of all 16 items in the category of “Intensification and Change of Consciousness.” Ibid., p. 127. The method used was the Verimax Orthogonal Factor Analysis: the loading score was .66 Experiencing a “great surge of energy” was therefore a dominant characteristic of meditative experience. cf. Bhagwan Shree Rajneesh, “Energy,” Sannyas, no. 1, January/February 1978 and the kundalini issue (no. 2, 1976), Rajneesh International Foundation. The authors related this to the spiritistic mana of Polynesian shamanism and the occult prana, or kundalini, of Hinduism.Osis, et al., “Dimensions of the Meditative Experience,” pp. 132-133 Consider other characteristic descriptions: “The force went through and through my body…. It was absolutely wild and intense…. I felt possessed by the energy.” This and dozens of similar reports are given in Bubba Free John, Garbage and the Goddess (Lower Lake, DA: Dawn Horse Press, 1974), pp. 69-100 and passim. One woman described the supernatural power as “entering me and taking over my being…. I was completely possessed…. [It was] taking me over completely…. There was nothing left of the person I thought to be Marie.” Ibid., p. 76. The experience of a surge of energy or power is also related to the cultivation of altered states of consciousness.Osis, et al.,

“Dimensions of the Meditative Experience,” pp. 132-133. Thus, “[Meditation is] a profoundly transformative process, for when practiced intensely, meditation disciplines almost invariably lead into the transpersonal [occult] realm of experience….. A progressive sequence of altered states of consciousness can occur, which may ultimately result in the permanent, radical [occult] shift in consciousness known as enlightenment or liberation.” Roger N. Walsh, Frances Vaughan, eds., Beyond Ego: Transpersonal Dimensions in Psychology (Los Angeles, CA: J. P. Tarcher, 1980), pp. 136-137, emphasis added. For us, the key issue is to determine the nature of this energy. Transpersonal psychotherapist Dr. Frances V. Clark, who wrote her Ph.D. dissertation on “Approaching Transpersonal Consciousness Through Affective Imagery in Higher Education,” refers to our culture’s modern fascination with occult energies. “In recent years we have learned much about releasing energy, raising energy, transforming energy, directing energy, and controlling energy flow. Yet the energy we are talking about remains undefined.” Frances Clark, “Exploring Intuition: Prospects and Possibilities,” The Journal of Transpersonal Psychology, vol. 5, no. 2, 1973, p. 163.   In the preface to “Kundalini Causalities,” an article discussing the dangers of yogic kundalini arousal during meditation and other New Age therapies, The New Age Journal points out: Traditionally, spiritual teachers have warned their students of the dangers and possible side effects of meditative techniques and helped practitioners deal with these difficulties as they arose.. Now that meditation is being marketed as a mass commodity, the information concerning the dangers and the necessary help is often not part of the package. Moreover, certain body therapies and human potential techniques appear to be triggering off the Kundalini syndrome completely outside the context of spiritual training and often the therapists themselves have no idea what this energy is, let alone how to deal with it. “Kundalini Casualties,” The New Age Journal, March 1978, p. 47. We are convinced that the mysterious, dramatic energy experienced in New Age meditation is characteristically the result of spiritistic influence. That meditation produces energy manifestations clearly associated with primitive shamanism, the occult, and Eastern or Western spiritism, is undeniable. Meditation-induced “energy manifestations” are so often associated with spiritism, that we have no doubt that this energy is not human, and certainly not divine, but demonic. Bhagwan Shree Rajneesh, “Energy,” Sannyas, no. 1, January/February, 1978; see the kundalini issues, Sannyas, no. 2, 1976; also Bhagwan Shree Rajneesh, “Suicide or Sannyas,” Sannyas, no. 2, 1978; Tal Brooke, Riders of the Cosmic Circuit: Rajneesh, Sai Baba, Muktananda… Gods of the New Age (Batavia, IL: Lion, 1986). (1039/1040/249). Whether the phenomena are described in terms of the Eastern guru’s shaktipat diksha (transfer of occult energy), classical shamanism, kundalini arousal, or something similar in other traditions, we are dealing with one and the same energy. Many primitive traditions attribute this energy to the spirit world (cf. the num of the Kalahari !Kung tribe); others see it as an internal manifestation of divine power residing potentially within all people. Even if this energy is not directly attributed to the spirit world, the spiritistic associations and manifestations are so blatant and persuasive one would be hard-pressed to conclude that he was dealing with anything other than spirit influence or possession. Great surges of energy are typically felt by Eastern and Western gurus, who freely confess they are possessed by spirits, demons, or gods.Brooke, Riders of the Cosmic Circuit. Occultists also admit the same condition, David Conway, Magic: An Occult Primer (New York: Bantam, 1973), pp. 129-132. as do many practitioners of yoga. Swami Bakta Vishita, Genuine Mediumship (n.p.p.: Yoga Publications Society, 1919). Swami Rudrananda, in Spiritual Cannibalism, writes that while in meditation his master touched him, and “I immediately felt within me a surge of great spiritual force…. [M]ovements similar to those of an epileptic controlled my body for about an hour. Many strange visions appeared and I felt things opening within me that had never been opened before.” Rudi [Swami Rudrananda], Spiritual Cannibalism (New York: Quick Fox, 1973), p. 85. In another experience, “Slowly [the spirit of my guru] Swami Nityananda came toward me and entered into my physical body. For three hours, I felt nothing of myself but that the saint had possessed me.” Rudi [Swami Rudrananda], Spiritual Cannibalism (Woodstock, New York: Overlook Press, 1978), p. 13. A leading popularizer of Tibetan Buddhism in this country, Chogyam Trungpa, states, “I will say that for beginners, it is extremely dangerous to play with [this] energy, but for advanced students such work becomes relevant naturally.” Chogyam Trungpa, “An Approach to Meditation,” The Journal of Transpersonal Psychology, vol. 5, no. 1, 1973, p. 74. One of the dangers is temporary or permanent insanity. Here are a few illustrations from meditators who follow guru Da (Bubba) Free John: Bubba’s eyes rolled up, and his lips pulled into a sneer. His hands formed mudras [yogic movements] as he slumped against Sal, who also fell back against other devotees sitting behind him. Almost immediately, many of those present began to feel the effects of intensified Shakti [power], through the spontaneous internal movement of the life-force. Their bodies jerked or shook, their faces contorted, some began to cry, scream, and moan. The whole bathhouse seemed to have slipped into another world…. I saw Bubba just enter into Sal, just go right into Sal. From there he went out over everybody else, and then everybody else started going crazy. Bubba Free John, Garbage and the Goddess, p. 47. My hands were slowing and vibrating. It felt like electricity, like they were on radar or something, and they were just being directed to all of the people around me. I felt like I was conducting the Force through me to the others there. People were screaming and howling, crying and yelling out. Ibid., p. 60. As soon as I went into the room, I felt the Force. My head started jerking, and I sat down next to Billy Tsiknas and Joe Hamp. The Force went through and through my body, at first warm, then hot. It started to hurt. I was in a sitting position. My hand was raised, and I couldn’t move it because of the Force moving though it. My head was bent down. I was so full of intensity, I started to cry. Ibid., p. 61. I was so insane I didn’t know what was happening at all…. Everybody sitting here stared to have incredible Shakti [power] manifestations, and other things. It was absolutely intense…. When I was sitting here with everybody, I was shaking, and it felt sort of like I was possessed…. The “terror of being destroyed, totally destroyed.” Ibid., p. 66. Suddenly his body exploded with movement, his arms and legs flying outward, his head rolling around and snapping. Force seemed to be flung from his body into the others present. Ibid., p. 72. What is called “intensification,” or possession by energy, is a core experience in the historical literature of meditation and many occult practices. This “energizing” is experiences as a dramatic and even overwhelming influx of spiritual power. It can be wild or uncontrollable, even deadly. And, irrespective of the interpretation placed on it, it shares characteristics with spirit possession. Abundant literature illustrates this, such as Bhagwan Shree Rajneesh’s The Book of the Secrets Bhagwan Shree Rajneesh, The Book of the Secrets, Volume 1: Discourses on Vigyana Bhairava Tantra (New York: Harper Colophon, 1977.; Swami Muktananda’s Play of Consciousness Swami Muktananda, Play of Consciousness (New York: Harper & Row, 1978).; Swami Rudrananda’s Spiritual Cannibalism Rudi [Swami Rudrananda], Spiritual Cannibalism (Woodstock, New York: Overlook Press, 1978).; Da Free John’s Garbage and the Goddess Bubba Free John, Garbage and the Goddess (Lower Lake, DA: Dawn Horse Press, 1974).; Tal Brooke’s Riders of the Cosmic Circuit.Tal Brooke, Riders of the Cosmic Circuit: Rajneesh, Sai Baba, Muktananda… Gods of the New Age (Batavia, IL: Lion, 1986). What is troubling is the pervasive denial that what is really operating here is, in fact, demonic influence or spirit possession. The following cartoon illustration underscores our concerns:   There is a cartoon by Feiffer that illustrates some of these component aspects of meditation, and it proceeds something like this: Harry is sitting meditation; Madge walks in and asks, “Harry, what are you doing?” “I am concentrating on my mantra.” “A mantra? What’s a mantra?” “It’s a secret. I cannot tell.” “Harry, what is a mantra?” “I cannot tell,” “Harry, I must know what a mantra is. Tell me what is a mantra? It’s either me or the mantra.” Harry doesn’t tell and she packs up her bags and leaves, and Harry says, “See it works; no stress.” Meditation may be working for a variety of reasons other than the ones that the literature cites, and I think we need to research these reasons. Roger Walsh, et al., “Meditation: Aspects of Research and Practice,” The Journal of Transpersonal Psychology, vol. 10, no. 2, 1978, p. 128. Though no one really knows how meditation “works,” given the historic and contemporary association to spiritism, it is by far the most logical theory as to how it “works,” On the “Merv Griffin Show,” July 25,1986, Griffin interviewed New Age channeler Jach Pursel and actor Michael York and his wife. They, along with Griffin and many other top Hollywood stars, were described as disciples of “Lazaris,” the spirit entity who possessed Pursel and spoke through him while on television. On the show, Pursel described how he met his spirit guide while engaged in his normal practice of simple meditation. In October of 1974, he recalled, he was meditating as usual; there was nothing abnormal in his experience. But all of a sudden—totally unexpectedly—he became possessed. The entity took him over entirely, completely controlling him and using his vocal chords to speak through him. His wife recorded the entity’s statements, and Pursers career as a medium was launched.The significant fact here is not the birth of another medium, but how easily Pursel became demon-possessed (he had been practicing 20-minute sessions of a simple and widely practiced form of meditation twice daily).   A Kundalini release (ie. energy that lies dormant at the base of the spine until it is activated, as by the practice of yoga, and channeled upward through the chakras in the process of spiritual perfection) is often the result of such practises, this can be triggered by the afore- mentioned meditation, yoga, breathing exercises, reiki, qigong, healing, tantra, transcendental meditation and other eastern or new age spiritual exercises. When the kundalini energy is rising through the chakras/meridians, it can cause big problems for the body and mental health of the practionar. Thousands of people around the world who have been damaged by these artificial spiritual exercises which are simply wholly Demonic/Jinn in origin and ostensibly consist of various techniques or “intentional triggers of transformative experiences” such as: sensory isolation and sensory overload, biofeedback, meditation of every description:Zen, Tibetan Buddist, chaotic, Transdental, Christian, Kabbalist, kundalini, raja yoga, tantric yoga, etc., psychosysnthesis, a system that combines imagery and meditative state, chanting, mood-altering music, mind expanding drugs, esoteric systems of religious mysticism and knowledge, guided imagery, balancing and aligning”energies,” hypnosis, body discipines…radical seminars designed to obliterate former values, etc. Marilyn Ferguson “The Aquarian Conspiracy”.

“Unless the mind has been disciplined from an early age, a stimulated kundalini brings with it an irrepressible desire for the occult and the bizarre. It is incredible to what extent the victims of this desire can be duped by pseudo-Godmen, charlatans and importers. It appears as if the mind has lost all its critical power of observing and judging the behavior of an individual whom people credit with psychic powers. They act in the most abnormal and revolting ways, which the duped audiences ascribe to mystical consciousness, transcending normal actions. In my own lifetime, one of these Godmen, residing in a village in Kashmir , used to urinate into a silver vessel in full view of the crowds that came to visit him and then sprinkled the liquid over the audience, both men and women. It is even said that his admirers held up their faces and uncovered their bosoms to receive the sanctifying drops.

The thirst for bizarre stories is unassuagable. A whole library of books containing the most fantastic and bizarre stories, which no sane mind can believe, cannot extinguish or satisfy the widespread hunger for the irrational and fanciful.

This thirst, which appears inexplicable to a rational mind, is caused by the stimulation of kundalini in an undisciplined system as the first warning to show that the mind is in an unhealthy state. The desire for strange drug experiences, for erratic psychic phenomena, for fantastic messages received from mediums and sensitives, for the strange actions of gurus and occult teachers, springs from this unhealthy condition of the mind. Today, the Western world is in the grip of a mass hysteria which, if not remedied in time, will revive all those grotesque and orgiastic creeds and cults, including witchcraft, which have been a feature of all decadent cultures in the past.”  “Living with Kundalini” by Gopi Krishna


Dangers to Physical and Mental Health

Transformation of consciousness, psychic powers, and spirit possession are not the only dangers of meditation. There are many studies which show that physical and psychological harm can occur from meditation training. Among them are Leon Otis, Adverse Effects of Meditation (Menlo Park, CA: Stanford Research Institute, 1979); J. A. Fahmy and H. Fledulisu, “Yoga Induced Attacks of Acute Glaucoma,” Acta Ophthalmologica, 1973, 51, pp. 80-84; J. Hassett, “Meditation Can Hurt,” Psychology Today, 1978, vol. 12, no. 6, pp. 125-126; A. Lazarus, “Psychiatric Problems Precipitated by Transcendental Meditation,” Psychology Reports, 1976, vol. 39, no. 2, pp. 601-602; B. O.. Regan, “Mind/Body Effects: The Physiological Consequences of Tibetan Meditation,” Newsletter of the Institute of Noetic Sciences, 1982, vol. 10, no. 2. And these consequences, like those discussed previously, mirror the effects produced by occult practices in general. A symposium report by a number of authorities, some of whom practice meditation, “Spiritual and Transpersonal Aspects of Altered States of Consciousness,” comments: “Recently the ‘fringe benefits’ of meditation regarding health, vitality, and cognitive functioning have been broadcast, and increasing numbers of people practice meditation for these purposes…. [But] there are many dangers in this journey.” Mary Jo Meadow, et al., “Spiritual and Transpersonal Aspects of Altered States of Consciousness,” The Journal of Transpersonal Psychology, vol. 11, no. 1, 1979, pp. 62-63. One authority states, “There can arise a clear vision of the dissolution of the self from moment to moment, and this often leads to a realm of fear and terror, and a kind of inner death.” Roger N. Walsh, Frances Vaughan, eds., Beyond Ego: Transpersonal Dimensions in Psychology (Los Angeles, CA: J. P. Tarcher, 1980), p. 153 In “Psychiatric Complications of Meditation Practice,” Mark Epstein, M.D., and Jonathan Leiff, M.D., discuss potential hazards. Leiff is a graduate of Yale College and the Harvard Medical School and is with the Boston University School of Medicine. Epstein, a psychiatrist at Cambridge Hospital, Harvard Medical School, wrote his undergraduate thesis on Theravadin Buddhist psychology and has practiced vipassana meditation for over a decade. The authors note the lack of public awareness concerning meditation hazards: What has not been made clear, however, is the range of side effects of meditative practices that may present to the clinician as psychological disturbance. Some of these complications have already been noted by Western health professionals, others are only too well known within the meditative traditions. The most obvious misuses of meditation were hinted at by early psychoanalytic investigators, while the more subtle abuses and psychological crises of the advanced practitioner have traditionally been handled by the meditation teacher. Mark D. Epstein, Jonathan Lieff, “Psychiatric Complications of Meditation Practice,” The Journal of Transpersonal Psychology, vol. 13, no. 2, 1981, p. 137. The authors’ conclusions are based on their ten years of experience observing literally “hundred of meditators.” They note that “practitioners of meditation, often swimming in the rhetoric of transformation, may fail to recognize the regressive nature of much of their experiences.” Ibid., p. 139. After a long discussion of the psychiatric complications noted in the literature, they conclude with a significant observation: “Meditation may be conceptualized as a developmental process that may produce side effects anywhere along the continuum. Some of the side effects may be pathological in nature while some may be temporary distractions or hindrances,” and they ask, “How can innocuous side effects of meditation be differentiated from debilitating ones?” Ibid., pp. 144-145. The point is that they cannot be differentiated. The person who meditates in the Eastern or occult manner takes risks with his bodily health, his mental health, and his spiritual health, as a great deal of research and literature demonstrates. Komilla Thapa, Vinoda Murthy, “Experiential Characteristics of Certain Altered States of Consciousness,” The Journal of Transpersonal Psychology, vol. 17, no.. 1, 1985; Jack Kornfield, “Intensive Insight Meditation: A Phenomenological Study,” The Journal of Transpersonal Psychology, vol. 11, no. 1, 1979; John Weldon, Zola Levitt, The Transcendental Explosion (Irvine CA: Harvest House Publishers); John Ankerberg, John Weldon, Craig Branch, Thieves of Innocence: Protecting Our Children from New Age Teaching and Occult Practices (Eugene, OR: Harvest House Publishers, 1993), pp. 182-184. The following are some of the characteristics experienced at the deeper levels of a particular type of Buddhist vipassana meditation, but they are not unique to it. They include spontaneous movements, experiencing dramatic “energy flows,” unusual breathing, dream and time changes, out-of-the-body experiences, and psychic phenomena. The descriptions given in the “spontaneous movement” category included much twitching, involuntary jerks, violent shaking, spontaneous yoga stretching, jerking, weird faces, drooling, pain, arms dancing, head rolling, falling over, violent shakes, loosening, and arms flapping like wings. Kornfield, “Intensive Insight Meditation,” pp. 41-45. On his own meditative journey, vipassana practitioner Jack Romfield said, “[M]y arms started to involuntarily flap like I was a chicken or another bird. I tried to stop them and I could barely do it, and if I relaxed at all, they would flap…. For two days I sat there watching my arms flap.” Stanislav Grof, Christina Grof (eds.), Spiritual Emergency (Los Angeles, CA: J. P. Tarcher, 1989), p. 155. Meditators also described many other experiences, such as loss of body awareness, the body disappearing, leaving the body, the head detaching itself, the body growing huge, LSD-like visions, hallucinations, and visions of Buddha. Almost half of those completing student questionnaires reported “especially dramatic mood swings.” These included huge releases of anger, “screaming mind trips,” depression, fantastic mood swings, “turbulence of mind,” “days of acute anxiety,” “violent crying,” restlessness, and “hellishness.” Kornfield, “Intensive Insight Meditation,” pp. 47-49. It is hardly surprising that one hears about meditation-induced casualties, when the very process of meditation is designed to radically dismantle the divinely instituted functions of human perception. After all, if one refuses to play by the rules, one might expect problems.   Many of the horrors experienced by committed meditators are also revealed by Tal Brooke, the former leading Western disciple of India’s premier guru, Sathya Sai Baba. Before receiving his graduate degree in religion from Princeton University, Brooke wrote Riders of the Cosmic Circuit, Tal Brooke, Riders of the Cosmic Circuit: Rajneesh, Sai Baba, Muktananda… Gods of the New Age (Batavia, IL: Lion, 1986). a little-known but urgently needed exposé unveiling much Eastern metaphysics for what they really are: forms of Satanism. But the power of the book also lies in documenting the hazards of many Eastern paths, including the radical breakdown of personal morality, suicides, and insanity. Ibid., pp. 140-154,190-202. These kinds of profoundly regressive states of consciousness are one reason for the confusion surrounding so-called “enlightenment,” and how to properly evaluate it and distinguish it or its components from psychopathology (e.g., madness or insanity). Experiences of Easter and occult “enlightenment” and mental illness are often so similar that even some New Agers are baffled at their correspondence.   Dr. Maggie Phillips, the director of the California Institute of Clinical Hypnosis and a licensed psychologist in Oakland who teaches workshops to colleagues around the world on the proper applications of relaxation therapies. “I’ve had people that went to these five- to eight-day-long retreats, and they were practically basket cases when they came out the other end. And they’re told, “You just have to be more patient.’ A lot of spiritual teachers don’t know how to look at the internal dynamics and how they interact with types of relaxation and meditation.” Dr. Margaret Singer, clinical psychologist emeritus at Berkeley, with research partner Dr. Janja Lalich, collected case histories from 70 clients seeking treatment for problems that began during meditation practice. Their research presents several examples of these symptoms and notes that prior to meditating, none of the patients had individual or family histories of mental disorders.   These results support what other researchers have discovered about the side effects meditation can cause. Dr. Michael Persinger, a psychologist at Laurentian University in Canada, found in 1993 that meditation induces epilepsylike brain seizures in some people. His study of 1,081 students showed that the 221 meditators among them had a higher rate of hallucinating floating spots of light, hearing voices, and even feeling the floor shake. Other studies reported that meditators complained of feeling emotionally dead and seeing the environment as unreal, two-dimensional, amorphous. Those results aren’t surprising if meditation reduces blood flow to the parietal lobe. In longtime meditators, unreality can strike spontaneously. Singer describes it as “involuntary meditation.” One of her patients took anti-seizure medication for 25 years after quitting meditative practice to regain control of his mind.   Other side effects fall under the paradoxical umbrella of “relaxation-induced anxiety,” or RIA. Instead of relaxing during meditation, RIA sufferers feel distressed. Psychologists at Virginia Commonwealth University monitored 30 chronically anxious people during guided meditation. Seventeen percent indicated that their anxiety got worse. A previous study led by Dr. Frederick Heide at Pennsylvania State University reported that the same happened to 54 percent of the subjects. Symptoms of RIA include panic attacks, sweating, a pounding heart, spasms, odd tingling sensations, and bursts of uncontrollable laughter or tears. RIA can also aggravate conditions, such as schizophrenia, depression, asthma, and bleeding ulcers, that were previously stable.

Dangers to Mental State (Psychopathology)

Properly evaluating the relationship between enlightenment and psychopathology has been difficult for some people because what we commonly define as mental illness in the West is actually a sign or component of “enlightenment” in the East. In other words, many Eastern gurus teach that periods of insanity indicate spiritual enlightenment! This is why it is called “divine madness.” The Hindu guru Bhagwan Shree Rajneesh once quaintly remarked that many of his disciples were going to become zombies, and all to the good: You be a Zombie. Be a perfect Zombie…. This is what is happening: catalepsy…. This is going to happen to many. Don’t be afraid when it happens. … You become idiotic…. And [it is] good, because it will destroy the past…. That is the whole meaning of sannyas and discipleship: That your past has been completely washed away—your memory, your ego, your identity—all has to go. Bhagwan Shree Rajneesh, “God Is a Christ in a Christ,” Sannyas, May-June 1978, p. 11. Meher Baba teaches that many of India’s insane, the Masts, who in the West would be treated in mental hospitals, are in various stages of spiritual evolution. They are mad precisely because they are so spiritually committed to God. C. B. Purdom, The God-Man: The Life, Journeys and Work of Meher Baba (London: George Allen & Unwin, Ltd., 1964), pp. 137-39. Meher Baba calls them the “God-intoxicated” ones. In the words of biographer and disciple C.B. Purdom: They are in a state of mental and physical disorder because their minds are overcome by strong spiritual energies that are far too much for them, forcing them to renounce the world, normal human habits and customs, and civilized society, and to live in a condition of chaos. They are psychological cases beyond the reach of psychoanalysis, because their condition is too advanced and obscure for any known procedures. Their minds are in some way shattered and their brains cannot fully function. Only a spiritual Master, says Baba, who is aware of the divine spirit that possesses them, which causes them to be unfit for normal society, can be of any help to them, and even his help reaches them with difficulty as they are virtually shut off from human contact. They are in the world but not of it. In Baba’s terms they are “God-intoxicated souls.” Ibid., p. 137. Significantly, the Masts became mad from meditative practices, and during some of these practices it was “by sudden contact with a highly advanced spiritual being.” Ibid. It is supposedly a “divine spirit that possessed them which causes them to be unfit for normal society.” Ibid., emphasis added. The famous Ramakrishna experienced insanity while undertaking his duties as a priest in the temple of Kali, and at many other times. During meditation he would experience a “divine delirium” and see demonic creatures emerging from him. For him, the truly enlightened soul often acts, in his words, “like a madman.” Mahendranath Gupta, The Gospel of Sri Ramakrisna, 6th ed. (New York: Ramakrishna-Vivekananda Center, 1977), p. 405; cf. p. 548). Biographer Romain Rolland described part of Ramakrishna’s experiences: He was no longer capable of performing the temple rites. In the midst of the ritual acts he was seized with fits of unconsciousness, sudden collapses and petrifactions, when he lost the control of the use of his joints and stiffened into a statue…. Minute drops of blood oozed through his skin. His whole body seemed on fire…. He became the Gods himself…. He was the great monkey [god], Hanuman.   The legion of Gods swooped upon him like a whirlwind. He was torn in pieces. He was divided against himself. His madness returned tenfold. He saw demonic creatures emerging from him…. He remained motionless, watching these manifestations issue from him…. He felt madness approaching…. Two years went by in this orgy of mental intoxication and despair. Romain Rolland, The Life of Ramakrisna, vol. 1 (Calcutta, India: Advaita Ashrama, 1979), pp. 36-37, 41. On his own path to enlightenment, Gopi Krishna “passed through almost all the stages of different, mediumistic, psychotic, and other types of mind; [and] for some time [he] was hovering between sanity and insanity.” Gopi Krishna, The Awakening of Kundalini (New York: E. P. Dutton, 1975), p. 124. Da Free John extols the “divine madness” of his own gurus, Nityananda, Muktananda, and Rudrananda: True yogis are living forceful beings. They are madmen, absolutely mad—and absolutely dangerous. … Look at Nityananda—he severed heads all his life…. Those who came to him …were wiped out, torn apart…. My experience with people like Rudi, Muktananda, Nityananda, and others was like this: I would be sitting in my house in New York by myself, and this force would enter me, it would practically break my neck, and my body and mind would be taken over. And I would walk around as Nityananda, as Rudi, as Muktananda, literally…. [T]hese wildmen served that process [of enlightenment]. Bubba Free John, No Remedy: An Introduction to the Life and Practices of the Spiritual Community of Bubba Free John, rev. ed. (Lower Lake, CA: Dawn Horse Press, 1976), pp. 275; cf. Franklin Jones [Da Free John], The Method of the Siddhas (Los Angeles, CA: Dawn Horse Press, 1973), pp. 256-258. Such stories could be multiplied ad nauseam. This modern penchant to reinterpret demonism and insanity as “true spirituality” is illustrated in numerous books, such as by consciousness researchers Stanislav and Christina Grof (eds.) in Spiritual Emergency: When Personal Transformation Becomes a Crisis and The Stormy Search for the Self.. Chapter titles from Spiritual Emergency include such items as “When Insanity Is a Blessing: The Message of Shamanism.” Grof and Grof, Spiritual Emergency, pp. 77-97. The introduction to the book informs us that pathological states of consciousness, when “properly understood and treated supportively,” can produce “healing and have very beneficial effects on the people who experience them..” Ibid., p. x. Ng B-Y in hes article “Qigong-induced mental disorders” Australian and New Zealand Journal of Psychiatry, April 1999, vol. 33, no. 2, pp. 197-206(10) writes “Qigong remained veiled in secrecy and available only to the elite until the early 1980s. Despite the widespread use of Qigong, there is a conspicuous lack of controlled data regarding its effects on mental health. Qigong, when practised inappropriately, may induce abnormal psychosomatic responses and even mental disorders. However, the ties between Qigong and mental disorders are manifold, and a causal relationship is difficult to establish. Many so-called ‘Qigong-induced psychoses’ may be more appropriately labelled ‘Qigong-precipitated psychoses’, where the practice of Qigong acts as a stressor in vulnerable individuals.” In the article entitled “Chinese hypnosis can cause qigong induced mental disorders” by Sing Lee associate professor of psychiatry Department of Psychiatry, Chinese University of Hong Kong, Dr. Lee writes “In the past two decades many reports of mental disorders induced by qigong have been published in the Chinese psychiatric literature. In the Chinese Classification of Mental Disorders, second revised edition (CCMD2-R), qigong induced mental disorder is found as a culture related mental disorder. In psychologically vulnerable individuals, qigong induced health disturbances or pian cha are believed to arise from the inappropriate application of qigong or the inability to “terminate the qigong” (shougong), or both. When severe they are known as zou (“run”) huo (“fire”) ru (“enter”) mo (“devil”); this means that the flow of qi deviates from the jing luo conduits and becomes fire, as a result of which a devil enters the person (metaphorically, referring to the emergence of psychotic symptoms).” All of this illustrates the deep spiritual confusion now coursing throughout our nation. The East has indeed come West and society must be prepared to deal with the consequences.

Dangers of Yoga

Yoga is a special physical exercise peculiar to India. Its characteristics are suffering and perseverance. Yoga practitioners are unbelievably restrained. Of course, when it is spread out over the world, Yoga has already lost its essence and become simply a health-improving method like gymnastics.

The methods of the practice of Yoga involve treating human body cruelly, putting the body in almost untenable postures, suffering hunger, swallowing strings in order to clean the intestines, keeping the same posture for a long time, holding the breath for a long time, or even cutting the tie under the tongue to stretch it long enough to reach the part that is between the nose and the mouth because in this way the practitioner can practice having the ability to breath little. Some Yoga practitioners are able to lie in hibernation underground for a month, depending on only the air in the coffin in which they lie, which is sufficient for them. Usually, the hibernators will need many Yoga practitioners to wake them up through meditation.   There are many websites and some organisations that have been developed for the purpose of brining to light the dangers of Yoga which regrettably few  people seem to be aware of ie Kundalini Risks & Information , Kundalini Signs And Symptoms Branded by the spirirt Kundalini Awakening. Anything that involves the intervention of the Demonic realm  will often result in adverse effect e.g. Kundalini Syndrome.   I was very pleased that in September 2004 Egypts highest Islamic theological authority has called yoga an “ascetic Hindu practise that should not be used in any manner of exercise or worship”. The edict signed by the Mufti Ali Gomoa, called the practise of yoga “an aberration” and said mimicking it was “forbidden religiously”.

Such a fatwa in my opinion was long overdue, and I now hope maybe the Theological Council will make a similar such ruling with respect to Qigong Chi and other Eastern Arts, especially given that many of China’s most famous martial artists have infact been Muslims (known as the Hui people in China) and they have made significant contributions at the highest level to the Chinese systems of martial arts and indeed many other systems in different countries (See Muslim Chinese Martial Arts), the same indeed can be said of Muslim Boxers eg Muhammed Ali, Mike Tyson, Chris Eubank, Naseem Ahmed etc. Since the issueance of this religious ruling other similarly inclined scholarly verdicts have been issued by Islamweb.net’s Fatwa Centre, for example

“Yoga is not simply a physical exercise, it is rather a form of worship to the sun instead of Allaah. Collins defines yoga as: ‘A Hindu system of philosophy aiming at the mystical union of the self with the Supreme Being:- a state of complete awareness and tranquility through certain physical and mental exercises’. It is widespread and well known in India since early ages. The original name of this sport in Sanskrit is (Sastanga Soria Namaskar) which means “prostrating for the sun on eight places of the body”. This sport has 10 known states among which the fifth stage where the person lays face down on earth touching the ground with his: both hands, the nose, the chest, both knees and the toes. By this one realizes prostrating for the sun on eight organs of the body.”  (See for a complete reading of the fatwa on Yoga).

And in addition a ruling on the life force energy, which could be interpreted as Qigong, being nothing other than a form of pantheism attributing the dominion of this universe and life to other than Allah (God). (See for a complete reading of the fatwa on the Universal life force energy).

The similarities between Hindu and Buddhist practices is striking, infact if we take the subject of this website as an example we see even qigong is often referred to as the “Chinese Yoga” by many practionars.  Throughout my research I have realized that there is a consistent theme within China’s main religions and Hindu practises and that they often spill over into each other, such as the following:

1.      Of the most blatant is that they are the worlds most idolatrous and ancient religions. (See Buddhism an Idolatrous Religion).

2.      Both offered there own versions of  their esoteric energies, The Buddhists/Taoist/Confucianist name it Qigong or Chi whist the Hindus call it Prana.   3.   Both religions also believe in an untappped center of energy around the base of the spine (dantien or elixir field).    4.      The Buddhists/Taoist/Conficianist describe the acupoints or meridians as channels whereby the chi flows and similarly the Hindus describe this as the chakra points.

5.      Both Hinduism and Buddhism emphasize the illusory nature of the world and the role of karma in keeping men bound to this world, transmigration of souls and the cycle of births and deaths. (See for a critique of the theory of Karma and Reincarnation)

6.   Both believe in he existance of gods or deities on difference planes.

7.      Both believe in certain spiritual practices like meditation, concentration, cultivation of certain bhavas or states of mind and ultimately achieving some form  of enlightenment.

8.      Both religions claim to see Taoist Golden orbs or diksha golden balls during certain meditative practises and rituals.

9.      Both believe in paranormal activities upon following various rituals and worship

10.  Both believe in harmful affects that can accrue through various spiritual practices e.g. Qigong Deviation Syndrome (Qigong psychosis) and Kundanlani Syndrome.

11. Both believe in detachment, renunciation of worldly life as a precondition to enter to spiritual life. Both consider desire as the chief cause of suffering.

12. The Advaita philosophy of Hinduism is closer to Buddhism in many respects.

13. Buddhism and Hinduism have their own versions of Tantra.

14. Both originated and evolved on Indian soil. The founder of Buddhism was a Hindu who became the Buddha. Hence Buddhism is regarded as the greatest gift of India.

15. Buddhism acknowledged the existence of some gods and goddesses of Hindu pantheon, but give them a rather subordinate status.

16. The original Buddhism as taught by the Buddha is known as Theravada Buddhism or Hinayana Buddhism. Followers of this do not worship images of the Buddha nor believe in the Bodhisattvas. The Mahayana sect considers the Buddha as the Supreme Soul or the Highest Being, akin to the Brahman of Hinduism and worship him in the form of images and icons.

17. Hinduism accepts the Buddha as an incarnation of Mahavishnu, one of the gods of Hindu trinity. The Buddhist do not accept any Hindu god either as equivalent or superior to the Buddha.

18. In Buddhist, Hindu as well as Taoist beliefs there is an assumption that the underlying state of reality is nothing. Taoists calls this Wu Chi (Wu means “empty” or “void” and “Chi means “limit”) , Buddhist call it the state of ultimate attainment Sunyata, the “Void”, and in the Vedantic philosophy of India, the highest state is called Nirguna Brahman.

19. In Chinese philosophical teaching  there is the belief that there is no personal God—all is the impersonal Tao (similar to the impersonal God-force of pantheism in Hinduism). The Tao is composed of conflicting opposites (Yin and Yang) which should be balanced or harmonized through yoga, meditation, etc., to promote spiritual wholeness. According to legend, Taoism founder Lao-tzu wrote Tao Te Ching (“The Way and Its Power”) about 550 BC. His teaching was developed and spread in the third century BC by Chuang-Tzu, whose writings inspired the Tao Tsang, 1200 volumes of Taoist scripture.

Monotheism in Ancient China

It is hard to comprehend that ancient China prior to 500 BC, was once a land of pure monotheism where the worship of Shang Ti  the “One imageless Supreme God” prevailed. All forms of idolatry were strictly prohibited. Only afterwards did polytheism start making deep inroads into mainstream Chinese beliefs. Part of the success of this can be put to the titanic battles that occurred around the 2nd millennium BC where black magic was shunned and given no room to develop in ancient China which thus had to spawn its pernicious practise elsewhere, such as shamanism to the south in south-east asia (e.g. Thailand, Burma and the Indochina’s) and north to Shintoism in Japan and shamanism in Mongolia, Siberia and North America and then Central America. The proponents of monotheism amongst the ancient Chinese emperors from Chuan Hsu (2600 BC) down to Yao and Shun (255 BC) can be credited for much of this having had to contend with the southern Chinese tribes of Jiu Li and San Miao which sought to bring in occult practices.
“There is no question that the ancient Chinese believed on one Almighty God. All the records, from the earliest times, testify to this. They called him Di, “the Lord”, or Shang Ti, “the Lord Above”… Unlike other people, however, they never endowed their God with human attributes or with any kind of physical image. From all records prior to 2nd century B.C. there is no indication that they had ever worshipped idols… In fact, idol worship was introduced to China only after the advent of Buddhism in the 1st century A.D.”    Wu, Kuo Cheng. 1982 The Chinese Heritage p.7. Crown Publishers, inc New York . Confucius who has long been regarded as a prophet of God by many Islamic scholars preached such a message of monotheism (as did all the messengers of God –  that to worship the one true God who is both  distinct and separate from hes creation and not to make partners with him) and it was during hes reign that he had to fend off the beginnings of the encroachment  into deviant idolatrous practises eroding the pure monotheism he taught. However it must be noted the  Confucianism of today  has become severely distorted over time and no longer reflects the pure monotheistic message of its original founder. The effectiveness of Confucius teachings of the power of truth hood over falsehood are well illustrated by the example of a well known battle  that once occurred between a wu (shaman) from Yueh region and a Confucian scholar named Tung Chung Shu who remonstrated against Emporer Wu at the time for hes involvement in the dark arts during the Han  dynasty (140 to 86  B.C.).  In anger the Emporer commanded the wu to execute a death spell against Tung Chung Shu. The Confucian scholar put on hes court dress and then started to recite a Confucian Classic. As the wu began hes demonic attack by going into a trance all of a sudden half way through he died. The Emporer realised the folly of hes ways and promoted Tung Chung Shu and resolved to worship only Shang Ti there on in. Thus the  power of the “Tao” of God had prevailed over evil.

Such beliefs of absolute monotheism  are  also integral to the Islamic religion.

“ He is Allah, the Eternal, the One, the Absolute. None is born of him nor is he born, he begetteth not nor is he begotten and there is nothing like him. “ Surat Iklas Quran (See Audio Lecture on Islamic Monotheism and the Statue of Buddha by Sheikh Ali-Tamimi)

From 100 AD as a result of the onset of the affects of Buddhism  in ancient China as well as the resurgent southern tribes of China renewing their efforts to propagate deviant practises, we see today within the  space of almost 2000 years China has undergone a sea change from monotheism to polytheism along with its darker off shoots of magic and a culture of superstitious practises which pervades all aspects of modern  Chinese life (and indeed the life style of other countries in south east asia). (See Buddhism an Idolatrous Religion)

Such practises of idolatry and magic go hand in hand, this is because idolatry represents the greatest form of oppression whereby a person deifies creation e.g. this can be either in the form of an individual (Buddha) or a location (the Hindus) thus negating the supreme power of the one true God i.e. Shang Ti , Allah etc. Also magic rites will invariably have connotations of idolatry e.g. the magician will worship other besides God and or make sacrifices etc thus appeasing the jinns to gain their assistance.   Although the belief in magic and the supernatural exists in all societies, the Chinese have embraced it like no other.

“It seems that to the Chinese mind, one of the first essentials in order to live in harmony with this world is to coordinate the activities of man with those of all the spirits, both beneficent and maleficent, who are believed to people the other world.”  Chinese Magic and Superstitions in Malaya by Leon Comber p1.

Hence the Chinese mind set plagued by this way of thinking has approached the problems of everyday life best by evoking the help of the  spirits (jinns) and seeking their advise in seeing into the  future and planning accordingly. The agency by which this is facilitated

“are Taoist and Buddhist priests, mediums, necromancers, geomancers, palmists, physiognomists, phrenologists, astrologers, and other fortune-tellers, who with their seemingly magical knowledge of the spirit world and pre-knowledge of things to come, are to be found everywhere there are Chinese.” Ibid p.2.

This is in short “all those grotesque and orgiastic creeds and cults, including witchcraft, which have been a feature of all decadent cultures in the past.”  Living with Kundalini” by Gopi Krishna

Perhaps this explains why modern day China after its brief debacle with communism in its long history

“is a raft of less alluring images: shabby products, counterfeit goods, rip-offs of intellectual property, exploited labour, human right abuses, the 1989 Tiananmen massacre, official nepotism and corruption, the persecution of religion and other forms of spirituality, a sick environment, outbursts of angry nationalism and its opposition towards the Dalai Lama in exile.”

Chinese Magic

“The Chinese is one of the few modern races where magic has survived since the dim dawn of human history dating as far back as 4000 B.C.. and which still forms a significant portion of the mystic, often by using secret names, spells, enchantments, formulas, pictures, figures, amulets and performing of ceremonies to produce supernatural results.”

Chinese Black  Magic An Expose  by Chinese Black Magic by Dr Ong Heat-Tatt  p.3 chp 1 “Every ethnic religion is filled with magic. It is used as a method of gaining one’s desires from the gods and of controlling the evil spirits which are ever ready to harm one. Through it they would win the blessings of long life, happiness and prosperity, but also an easy way of revenge. Wherever the gods fail to grant ones prayers, he resorts to magic as a plan to forcibly obtain his wishes. Through it, the unseen and hostile powers are governed for ones benefit, and the discomfort of ones enemies.” Chinese Religion seen through the Proverbs by Plopper, Clifford H (1935). Shanghai China

Practionars of magic often pursue their art with great diligence as it requires knowledge of orders of the universe and the earth,  plant and animal worlds, properties of spirits, astrology, herbology, mineralogy, even medicines, mathematics and alchemy.

Al-Ghazzaalee was quoted as defining magic as follows,

“Magic is something which is derived from knowledge of the special characteristics of elements [jawaahir] and mathematical calculations related to the time of the rising of celestial bodies. From these special characteristics a form is made resembling the bewitched person, and a particular time of the rising of celestial bodies is awaited. When the time arrives, words of disbelief and obscenity, which contravene divine law, are uttered to obtain access to the devil’s assistance. The combinations of these factors result in – according to normal procedure – strange conditions within the bewitched person.” Quoted in Siddeeq Hasan Khaan’s ad-Deen al-Khaalis. Vol. 2 p.324

“Magic is conducted by utilising rites, incantations, magical names, mystical characters and symbols, fumigations or burning. The mind of the operator of magic would be prepared through repentance, expiation, fasting, ablutions, cleansing, meditation and other ceremonies, including sacrifices.” Chinese Black Magic by Dr Ong Heat-Tatt  p.5


The jinns may demand anything from polytheistic idolatrous practises to be performed to the worship of other than God, to self-immolation through self torcher e.g. whipping or cutting oneself or indeed degenerate acts e.g. drinking menstrual blood, smearing oneself in thesis, isolating oneself from friends and family for a long period of time, insulting or violating sacred texts, or even the ultimate human sacrifice on the altar. The evil  jinns (shayteen) being party to Satanism also possess an extreme hatred and inferiority complex against humans and so will be determined to inadvertently humiliate the magician in as much as is possible. The magicians through usurping the powers of the jinnie will believe they exercise great control, in fact the opposite couldn’t be more true the jinnie has thus succeeded in subverting the magicians values and norms and through the magician spreads nothing but corruption throughout the whole of society.

Al-Aaloosee addressed this issue, saying

“What is meant by magic is an act which resembles a miracle but is not, because it [i.e. magic] is learned. And in order to perform it, the help of the devil is sought by pleasing them with abominable acts. [These acts may be in the form of] statements, like incantations containing phrases of shirk and praises of Satan; acts, like planet worship and an adherence to crime and licentiousness; and beliefs, like the preference and love of whatever is necessary to please [the devil]”.  Rooh al-Ma’aanee, vol. 1, p. 338

Also once the magician begins hes career in this debauched practise he will find the jinns wont let him leave, it is also very common for  many spells often to reverse themselves on the spell maker thus demonstrating that the magician really has no complete control over the jinnies at all.

The people who possess such powers (e.g. the Chinese wuist priests) are often either greatly respected or feared (in some cases even persecuted by people and rulers).  The magician is only able to perform supernatural acts through the intervention of the jinnies (demons) that will exact an exorbitant price from the magician in return for their services.

The Sai Kong, i.e. male wuist priests largely occupy themselves with sacrificial work, south saying work and divination, calling upon the shayteen (evil jinns/devils) for assistance.  Their altars display the pictures of Lao Tzu and also Chang Tao Ling. Their wu-ship is often hereditary due to the secret nature of all the treasure of the mystic knowledge of ceremonies, formulae, charms and spells. Hence there is often a strong incentive to keep it in the family or close by, As the shayteen outlive humans considerably, there would often be a smooth succession over their control by other members of the Sai Kong’s family. If their was no one to pass the family spirits into then it is said the Sai Kong would be liable to suffer an agonizing death. This is what we find that practionars of magic once in cannot leave the fold of the occult. Tao Nai-nai are the female equivalent of the male Sai Kong, hence they are termed female Taoist witches. Typically they offer the same type of services as their male counter parts, often slipping into trances, summoning spirits and lightening joss sticks in incense holders and then observing the ashes as an indication of how the patient would faire. They also have a notorious reputation of requiring a human sacrifice often of a family members child , when the elders illness cannot be cured.

The main forms of black magic in China are Ku magic  (this revolves around small highly poisonous animals/insects e.g. serpents, scorpions, spiders, centipedes, frogs and lizards),  Lu Pan Magic  (i.e. carpenter magic), Mao Shaun Magic & the six Chia spirits magic.

Building Magic was very common in China (Chin Hua) where by images, artefacts, models and or  figurines (because they are considered to be the essence of deities, Gods or sprits) as well as dead animals following sacrifices would be placed at various locations within a building, often within its very foundations by a building mason, which is why it was very important to be on good terms  with such masons and carpenters incase they performed magic on the new resident cursing them.  Similarly the “Book of Lu Pan”, who is regarded as a patron saint of carpenters  and artisans and is  considered divine  from the Han dynasty, contains many pictures each with a specific effect e.g. to cause poverty, death or marital discord  etc which the craftsman would utilise. Puppet magic akin to voodoo, was also very common where by the victims hair, nails or clothes was sought so the spirit could relate to the victim.

Also ku magic (European equivalent of the witches cauldron) is notorious in China, whereby a poisonous drink would be served to the victim causing a variety of different affects from love spells or acquiring the wealth of the intended victim ore even destroying their live stock or crops etc. Ku magic has many types, one of the most popular is by placing a variety of different insects and or reptiles (the most deadly being the golden caterpillar) in a jar for a certain period often on the 5th day of the 5th moon, after which only one insect/reptile will prevail within the jar the rest having being devoured, and then unleashing this on the intended victim, who’s five viscera would rot away. It is also said the insects or reptiles could transform into other animals e.g. dogs or pig to do their work. Just as the art of using ku magic for malevolent purposes exists, the method of nullifying its affects of demoniacal diseases has also developed e.g. by using a gold pin to pierce the ku, using jan ho (ginger plant), wearing of musk, leek juice mixed with spirits and a drink prepared from minced stalks of orange trees.

The 5th day of the 5th moon is by no coincidence the Chinese Dragon Boat Festival (which is strongly connected to ancient rites of human sacrifice) and symbolically the period of summer solstice. Historically this time is often been associated with the forces of evil  as it signifies the ascendancy of darkness and it is likely that its inception into Chinese mainstream culture has foreign roots which  migrated to China during ancient times.  It is also the day when according to Chinese folklore that various deities or saints are invoked to quell demons e.g. Taoist Pope Chang Ta Lin riding out on he’s Tiger and Chung Kuei, and the day when the Pakua is placed on roof tops.

Chinese Black Magic in its most pernicious form can also involve the use of body parts to subjugate a human soul i.e. kue mei or yen mei meaning spectres in subjection. This could entail anything from taking specific body parts of a victim through their deliberate pre-meditated murder, grave robbery or theft of their soul by placing objects besides a sleeping person to prevent the return of their soul.

Another powerful form of Chinese Black Magic utilises the six Chia spirits (chia-tzu, chia-hsu, chia-shen, chia-wu, chia-ch’en, chia-yen). This is done by the meticulous writing out of talismans which often have to be committed to memory and then burnt to summon the spirits. The nine stars of the northern heavens are invoked to control the spirits each with its own mudra and mantra. There is also a close relationship between the six spirits and that of the Ganzhi system. The Tun Chia ceremony of the Taoist left has often been used to summon the six Chia spirits.

For a complete understanding of the most powerful aspects of Chinese black magic one must understand the Chinese concept of the five elements (fire, wood, water, metal and earth) and their respective cardinal directions. These are the basis of a wide array of magical arts that also includes Chinese geomancy e.g. Feng Shui. The western concept of magic is also very similar except it includes four of the above elements (earth, water, air and fire) the fifth element being “ether and breath”. Central to this theorem of Chinese Magic is that the world is composed of these  five elements and that this relationship has one of two possibilities. This dichotomy is either mutually productive whereby each of the five elements support each other in a circular fashion. This is known as the “Early heaven of Fu Hsi array” and it is considered a harmonious relationship which is propitious to the family and general well being, as a result this type of pakua is seen hanging over the front doors of homes across the landscape of China to supposedly ward off evil.

The second relationship is a destructive one where wood over powers earth, earth conquers water, water – fire and fire – metal. This is known as the Later heaven or King Wen array” pakua and was invented around 2600 BC.. The elements are each in opposition to each other traversing the centre of the circle to attack linearly its respective counter part, hence this is depicted as a pentagram.

source

In addition King Wen is credited with the I Ching, Book of Changes which the pakua is closely associated. The I Ching occupies a position of monumental importance as a repeller against evil forces and it contains a total of 64 hexagrams.

Thus the ancients realised both the Fu Hsi and the King Wen array pakuas in addition to the first 2 hexagrams  of the I Ching (all considered to be Feng Shui white magic) where particularly effective against combating against the evil. This methodology of using magic to break magic in China was and still is a popular way to fight off black magic.

The combinations of two inverted triangles forms what is known as the six pointed seal of Soloman. Such is the quintessential power of this seal that it is said to be equated with the “stone of immortality”. The tip of the top inverted triangle represents fire and the tip of the bottom inverted triangle it is water, the interaction of both of the inverted triangles is thus 2 of the 5 elements.

In the Chinese system, the animals of the four cardinal directions are also the four elements. According to some versions the four cardinal directions animals are placed in the two triangles i.e. the Seal of Solomon, to Taoists this is known as the “two mountains” i.e. one group the four cardinal directions and the other group the “Six masters”.

Indeed the corpus of world magic has been incorrectly attributed to the Prophet Solomon (pbhu) by numerous cults, groups and religions for centuries now. For example

“The Jews and those who follow them in using jinn through the art of magic allege that Solomon used magic to gain mastery over the jinn”.
The World of the Jinn & Devils by Dr. Umar Sulaiman al-Ashqar University of Jordon p.47

However the Quran elucidates:

<!–[if !supportEmptyParas]–> <!–[endif]–>“Solomon disbelieved not; but the devils disbelieved, teaching mankind magic and that which was revealed to the angels in Babel, and Nor did they (the two angels) teach it to anyone till they had said: We are only a temptation, therefore disbelieve not (in the guidance of Allah)…(Quran al-Baqara 102).

Conclusion

In conclusion, meditation today is almost universally seen as a positive path bringing physical or mental health and spiritual wholeness. Unfortunately, many of those who suffer from such an interpretation have little knowledge of either the occult tradition behind meditation or the dynamics of spiritual deception. I have further demonstarted that the concept of Chi as a amorphous cosmic energy has been known about by other civilisations and communities, with a similiar set of rituals/movements & problems associated with them. The perception of Qigong as a practise associated with quietness, relaxation, and internal harmony has been challenged and disparaged. The Chinese communities obsession with its history and superiority and the much elevated position of adoration Martial Artitsts recieve in the West, often blindes them (to the point of arrogance) choosing to disseminate a flawed doctrine (based upon occult practises/forces) and to avoid warning students of the potential risks associated with their practise. This comes at a time when Chinese quackery medicine is making big inroads into the gaping vacuum Western medicine presents with the proliferation of medicine stores and alternative forms of healing up and down the country, as well as the backdrop of China’s ascendency as a great economic power. For those that seek to deride my writing should at the very least greet with incredulity the advise given offered to them by their instructors and look objectively at the facts.   Jinns are very real.. Chi Kung is an incorrect term to describe malevolent entities that only aim to create mischief by occupying a host for their own fulfillment.  It saddens me greatly to find individuals who are deluded and choose to spread the handy work of Satan by teaching such illegitimate practices of Chinese Black Magic which has its origins deeply rooted in primitive shamanism, such people who incidentally would have two hundred years ago been correctly branded as Occultists, Witches or Satanists, the difference being in this instance the perpetrators of this evil (i.e. the instructors of martial arts) are completely ignorant of the powers/forces they are summoning and tinkering with.

I wish not to reveal my name, which is why I choose to remain anonymous. Should you choose to communicate with me please feel free to send me an email.

**EXPOSED! – Sathya Sai Baba IS A Lying Snake-In-The-Grass!**

Sai Baba EXPOSED As A Lying Snake-In-The-Grass!



by David J. Stewart & Andrew Friedman

Who is a liar but he that denieth that Jesus is the Christ? He is antichrist, that denieth the Father and the Son. -1st John 2:22

This is just another of Satan’s New Age religions teaching that there are many paths to God.


But the Word of God teaches that there is ONLY one way, and that is through Jesus Christ,


Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by Me-John 14:6.


As you will see in this article, Sai Baba is just another Satanic deception designed by the Devil to kill, steal and destroy your life (John 10:10).

Who was Sai Baba?

According to their official website at www.saibaba.org,



“Chandbhai, the headman of a village called Dhoopkhede (in Aurangabad, India), once lost his horse and was looking for it.. Suddenly he heard a voice say “You look tired. Come here and rest a while”. He turned around and saw a young Fakir (Baba). The fakir smiled at him and said “What are you looking for in this jungle, Chandbhai”. This surprised Chandbhai and he wondered how the fakir knew his name.

Note: “Fakir” is a Muslim or Hindu mendicant monk who is regarded as a holy man.

Slowly, he said “I have lost my horse. I have looked for it everywhere, but cannot seem to find it”. The fakir told him to look behind a clump of trees. Chandbhai was pleasantly surprised to find his horse grazing peacefully behind those trees.


He thanked the fakir and asked his name. The fakir said “some people call me Sai Baba.”

Sai Baba then invited Chandbhai to have a smoke with him. He got the pipe ready, but there was no fire to light it with. Sai Baba thrust a pair of tongs into the ground and brought out a burning coal. Chandbhai was wonderstruck. He thought “this is no ordinary person” and invited Baba to come to his house and be his guest for a few days.


Next day Baba went to Chandbhai’s house and found everybody in a very joyful mood and festivities going on all around. He found that Chandbhai’s wife’s nephew was getting married. The bride was from Shirdi and the marriage party was going to Shirdi. Chandbhai invited Baba to accompany the marriage party to Shirdi. At Shirdi they camped in a field next to Khandoba’s temple.


After the wedding, Sai Baba stayed on at Shirdi. At first he lived under a neem tree and begged for food whenever he needed it. He then went to Khandoba’s temple, intending to stay there, but the temple priest met him at the entrance and told him to go to the mosque. That is how Baba, started staying at the Mosque which was later called Dwarkamayi.


Baba preached at Shirdi all his life and performed numerous miracles to convince people that God exists. He healed people’s diseases, provided moral and material comfort to his Devotees. Baba helped bring Unity and Harmony between all communities. He said that God is one, but called by different names. He said follow your own religion and seek the truth. (Emphasis added.  Clearly, this is just another one of the Devil’s New Age religion’s.)

One day a rich millionaire named Booty came to Sai Baba and said he was going to construct a stone building for Shri Krishna. Baba helped him plan the building. Before the building was completed Baba fell very ill. On the 15th of October 1918, he breathed his last. His last wish was to be buried in Booty’s building.

Booty’s stone building came to be known as Samadhi Mandir. Shri Sai Baba was buried here and a beautiful shrine was built over it. To this day, people flock to Shirdi to pay homage to Shri Sai Baba. ”


False promises made to devotees of

Sai Baba:

  1. No harm shall befall him who sets his foot on the soil of Shirdi.
  2. He who cometh to My Samadhi, his sorrow and suffering shall cease.
  3. Though I be no more in flesh and blood, I shall ever protect My devotees.
  4. Trust in Me and your prayer shall be answered.
  5. Know that My Spirit is immortal. Know this for yourself.
  6. Show unto Me he who sought refuge and been turned away.
  7. In whatever faith men worship Me, even so do I render to them.
  8. Not in vain is My Promise that I shall ever lighten your burden.
  9. Knock, and the door shall open. Ask and ye shall be granted.
  10. To him who surrenders unto Me totally I shall be ever indebted.
  11. Blessed is he who has become one with Me.
  12. Originally written in Marathi by Shri Mohaniraj Pandit and later translated into English. Source: Publications of the Shirdi Sai Baba Sansthan.

The 11 promises made by Sai Baba above are all lies.   Only God Himself can answer prayers.  Only God is worthy of worship.  Only God can remedy sorrow and suffering.  Sai Baba CANNOT be God because he is NOT Jesus Christ, and Jesus is Almighty God!  Please don’t be misled friend, Sai Baba is another Satanic scam designed by the Devil to keep lost sinners away from the Truth of God’s Word.  You need the Truth, but Sai Baba speaks great boastful lies.

Another New Age Religion


Sai Baba said in the paragraph above,


God is one, but called by different names. He said follow your own religion and seek the truth.

Follow your own religion and seek the truth?  Is this what the Word of God teaches…follow your own religion?  On the contrary, we read in Galatians 1:8,


But though we, or an angel from heaven, preach any other gospel unto you than

that which we have preached unto you, LET HIM BE ACCURSED.


The Apostle Paul outlines the gospel (good news) of Jesus Christ for us in 1st Corinthians 15:1-4,


Moreover, brethren, I declare unto you THE GOSPEL which I preached unto you,

which also ye have received, and wherein ye stand; BY WHICH YE ARE SAVED,

if ye keep in memory what I preached unto you, unless ye have believed in vain.

For I delivered unto you first of all that which I also received, how

that CHRIST DIED for our sins according to the scriptures;

And that HE (Christ) WAS BURIED, and that HE ROSE AGAIN

the third day according to the scriptures.


The gospel of the Word of God teaches that Jesus Christ, Who is Almighty God, died, was buried, and then rose again for our justification.  Jesus paid a debt He did not owe, because we owed a debt we could not pay.  Jesus shed His blood to pay for our sins.  Thus, the ONLY way to Heaven is through Jesus Christ, because He is the only One Who died for your sins, and the only One Who could have died for your sins.  Jesus was the sinless Lamb of God Who became as sin so that we, who are sinful, could be made the righteousness of God in Christ.


2nd Corinthians 5:21 reads,


For he hath made him to be sin for us, who knew no sin; that we might be made the righteousness of God in him.


Galatians 1:8 declares that anyone who teaches or preaches a different gospel, is CURSED!


The New Age movement is CURSED of God because they teach that Jesus Christ is not the only way to Heaven.  In fact, New Agers deny Christ’s deity (that He is God).  Oprah Winfrey has woefully promoted the New Age movement and has blatantly denied that Jesus is the only way to Heaven.  Increasingly popular religions such as the Baha’i faith also teach that there are MANY paths to the light, to God.  Tragically, even our President, George W. Bush, has bought into Satan’s big lie.  The tragic truth of the matter is that “the light” they are following is Satan,


And no marvel; for Satan himself is transformed into an angel of light.


Satan is the light of the New Age Movement, and of all the occult groups.  All of the various names for the different gods of New Age are simply smokescreens for the Devil, ole Lucifer the dragon himself, who appears “AS” (but isn’t) the light.  The True Light is Jesus Christ,


Then spake Jesus again unto them, saying, I am the light of the world: he that followeth me shall not walk in darkness, but shall have the light of life.


Jesus is the Light, NOT Sai Baba.  Shri Sai Baba is an imposter, a fake, a phony!!! You need to follow Jesus Christ, for He alone is the True Light.

There is Only One God and ONLY One Way to God, through Jesus Christ!


Look again at the preceding list of promises made by Sai Baba.  Promise # 7 reads,


In whatever faith men worship Me, even so do I render to them.

Worship?  Are we supposed to worship anyone other than God?  The Ten Commandments forbid mankind from worshipping ANYONE other than the God of the Bible (Exodus 20:1-5).


We read in Isaiah 42:8,


I am the LORD: that is my name: and my glory will I not give to another,

neither my praise to graven images.


God is a jealous God and will NOT share the praises and glory that are rightfully His with anyone else.  The erroneous belief that there are many different paths to the light is unbiblical.  The Word of God plainly teaches that there is ONLY ONE GOD,


I am he: before me there was no God formed, neither shall there be after me” -Isaiah 43:10.


Deuteronomy 6:4 proclaims,


“Hear, O Israel: The LORD our God is one LORD.


New Age is a lie. The Word of God teaches that the Godhead came to this world incarnate, in the fleshly body of Jesus Christ (Colossians 2:9).  Jesus Christ is Almighty God (John 1:1-3,14; John 10:33, 1st Timothy 3:16; Revelation 1:8).  There is No other God than the God of the Bible. If you deny this, then you blatantly deny the Bible and the deity of Jesus Christ.  You are antichrist (1st John 2:22).

Shri Sai Baba’s life and teachings are well documented in Sai Satcharitra by Shri Hemadpant in Marathi which was personally blessed by Shri Sai Baba.  Shri Hemadpant got Shri Sai Baba’s blessings in 1910 to write this work.


Shri Sai Baba said the following horse crap:


Let him make a collection of stories and experiences, keep notes and memos; I will help him. He is only an outward instrument.


Subsequently Sai Satcharitra has been translated into a number of different languages. The one in English is called Shri Sai Satcharitra by Shri Nagesh Vasudev Gunaji.SOURCE

The following is a quote from chapter 3 of the: Shri Sai Satcharitra

If a man utters My name with love, I shall fulfill all his wishes, increase his devotion. And if he sings earnestly My life and My deeds, him I shall beset in front and back and on all sides. Those devotees, who are attached to Me, heart and soul, will naturally feel happiness, when they hear these stories. Believe Me that if anybody sings My Leelas, I will give him infinite joy and everlasting contentment. It is My special characteristic to free any person, who surrenders completely to Me, and who does worship Me faithfully, and who remembers Me, and meditates on Me constantly. How can they be conscious of worldly objects and sensations, who utter My name, who worship Me (Emphasis added)

Blasphemy!!!  Sai Baba claims to be able to give “everlasting contentment” and to “free any person.”  The Word of God proclaims that unless a man is BORN AGAIN, he CANNOT enter into the kingdom of Heaven,


“Jesus answered and said unto him,

Verily, verily, I say unto thee,

Except a man be born again,

he cannot see the kingdom of God.


If you don’t get born again by the Spirit of Christ, then you will go to Hell when you die.  Sai Baba is NOT the God of the Bible.  Sai Baba is a false god who fronts for Satan, just as Baphomet, the false god of Freemasonry.  There are many false prophets and false gods who make all kinds of promises, but you must keep in mind that Satan is the father of all liars,


Ye are of your father the devil, and the lusts of your father ye will do. He was a murderer

from the beginning, and abode not in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaketh a lie,

he speaketh of his own: for he is a liar, and the father of it -John 8:44.


What do you want to believe, Sai Baba’s writings or the inspired Word of God?  The Word of God has stood the test of time and has a remarkable history.  In fact, the possibility of such a book being written by 40 different writers over 1,500 years, and yet all perfectly interconnecting is virtually impossible.  God is the only answer my friend.


Isaiah 44:17 reads:


…he maketh a god, even his graven image: he falleth down unto it, and worshippeth it, and prayeth unto it, and saith, Deliver me; for thou art my god.


Whether a graven image or a false god, it is idolatry to WORSHIP anyone other than the God of the Bible.  Sai Baba asks you to worship him, but did He love you enough to die upon the cross for your sins?  No!  Is Sai Baba able to save you?  Let’s see what the Bible says in:


Acts 4:10-12


Be it known unto you all, and to all the people of Israel, that by the name of

Jesus Christ of Nazareth, whom ye crucified, whom God raised from the dead,

even by him doth this man stand here before you whole.

This is the stone which was set at nought of you builders, which is become the head of the corner. 

NEITHER IS THERE SALVATION IN ANY OTHER.


Clearly, the Word of God teaches that eternal salvation can ONLY be found in the Person of Jesus Christ.  If you follow and worship Sai Baba, then you will one day burn in the fires of Hell for rejecting Jesus Christ as your personal Saviour.  Please don’t allow Satan to continue blinding you (2nd Corinthians 4:4).

What’s Wrong with This Picture?


In all the writings and promises of Sai Baba, there is NO mention of sin.  This is typical of the New Age crowd, they teach that there is no right or wrong, only energy (which is exactly what is taught in the evil Harry Potter series).  This is also the mentality of Wiccan witches and many other godless groups.  The Word of God teaches that all men and women are SINNERS (Romans 3:10,23).  The Bible teaches that there is a penalty for that sin, which is death (Romans 6:23).  The Bible also mentions a “second death” (Revelation 20:11-15).


Anyone who’s name is not found written in the Lamb’s (Jesus’) Book of Life will be cast into the lake of fire.” (Revelation 20:15).


New Age religions such as Baha’i and Sai Baba don’t address the issue of sin because it would make it more difficult to deceive people.  Teaching people that they are sinners brings them much too close to the Truth for Satan’s comfort.  If we are sinners, then there must be a sacrifice for sin.  Since Jesus died upon the cross for our sins and is the Saviour, Satan strives to blind people from their sinfulness.  Satan loves when people follow New Age religions that blind them from their wickedness and need for a Saviour to atone for those sins.  Jesus Christ shed His blood upon the cross to pay for our wicked sins.  The entire matter of Biblical salvation concerns our sins and our need to have them forgiven or else face eternal death in Hell.  Only Christ Jesus can save us because only He made atonement for our sins.  New Age religions DON’T address this.  Any wrong doing is NOT recognized as “sin,” but rather as a weak area in one’s life.  The FACT that Sai Baba doesn’t speak of sin, redemption, or forgiveness is reason enough in itself to reject him.  Any legitimate religion MUST take into account the reality of sin.

Jesus Christ Created Humanity, NOT Sai Baba


On their website, they promote their false god, Shri Shirdi Sai Baba, with the words “He has no beginning…He has no end…All beings arise from him, and into him they return.”  But what does the inspired Word of God teach?  The Word of God teaches that God created ALL things, NOT Sai Baba!  All beings did NOT arise from Sai Baba.  It was Jesus Who created ALL things (John 1:1-3, 14; Colossians 1:14-16).  Isaiah 45:18 proclaims, “For thus saith the LORD that created the heavens; God himself that formed the earth and made it; he hath established it, he created it not in vain, he formed it to be inhabited: I am the LORD; and there is none else.”  The Bible teaches that ONLY God created the universe, and Jesus Christ is God Almighty (John 1:1-3,14; John 10:33; Colossians 2:9; 1st Timothy 3:16; revelation 1:8).  Sai Baba is an imposter!!! The religion of Sai Baba claims that it was Sai Baba who created humanity, but the Word of God teaches that it was Jesus Christ.


Immaculate Conception?


Chapter 4 speaks of the “Immaculate Conception of Sai Baba and His First Advent in Shirdi.”  Shirdi is located approximately 296 Kilometers from Mumbai (Bombay) City in India. The Word of God proclaims that ALL men have sinned and come of the glory of God (Romans 3:23)..  Just as there is NO such thing as the Immaculate Conception of Mary, neither is there an Immaculate Conception for Sai Baba or anyone else.  Only Jesus Christ was born without a sin-nature, born of a virgin mother, with NO earthly father.  It is sinful to teach that anyone could be born without a sin-nature other than the Son of God Himself.  Jesus never sinned, not even once (2nd Corinthians 5:21; Hebrews 4:15).  Mary was a sinner.  Sai Baba was a sinner.  The Apostles were sinners.  Only Jesus was without sin, which is why He was acceptable as a sacrifice for our sins.  Sai Baba is a fraud.


Sai Baba Incarnate?


This religion gets weirder by the moment.  Followers of Sai Baba believe that the guy pictured below is Sai Baba incarnate.  He claims to be Sai Baba and has millions of followers worldwide.  There is absolutely nothing in the Bible which even HINTS to reincarnation.  Wiccan witches believe in reincarnation, as do all New Age cults.


WHO IS SATHYA SAI BABA?


Born on the 23rd of November 1926 in the little village of Puttaparthi in Andhra Pradesh, Baba’s life has been a consistent manifestation of HIS DIVINITY. His advent was heralded by mysterious omens in and around the village. The tambura (stringed instrument) and the madaala (a drum) in the family home would sometimes play sweetly on their own in the middle of the night. His father, Pedda Venkappa Raju, consulted a learned pandit about this phenomenon and was told that such music presaged an immensely auspicious event.

Soon after He was born, a miracle took place. A cobra under the sheets gently rocked the baby and the baby smiled serenely as the air filled with the sweet scent of jasmine blossom. Astrologers tell us that the events that surrounded His birth correspond to the event that precede the advent of an incarnation of God (Avatar).

Even as a young child, Baba identified himself with all living beings. He refused to eat meat and hated the killing of animals and birds for food. He displayed infinite compassion and was generous in giving charity. He could not stand the suffering of others.

By the age of eight He organised groups of His age to sing the glory of the Lord with Bhajans that he had composed Himself. Sathya composed songs about Krishna’s life and He and his group would enact the stories in song and dance. He danced well and played difficult parts with effortless ease.

Sathya was a good and lovable boy. He attended school at Puttaparthi and the neighbouring village of Bukkapatnam where He would delight his friends with displays of His remarkable, miraculous powers, manifesting sweets and other gifts from empty bags or producing, apparently from nowhere, prasad for the Bhajan singers.

Fearing that he was possessed by some evil spirit, His family tried to exorcise the spirit by various means involving bodily torture, all of which He suffered with serenity. During the course of these events He declared that He was Sai Baba – a reincarnation of Sai Baba of Shirdi – a tiny village that lies 1000 kms to the Northwest of Puttaparthi.

On 20th October 1940, Baba announced that he did not belong to His family and that the illusion (Maya) that He had assumed had been discarded. He was going to go to His devotees who were calling Him to launch his divine mission.

As His devotees started increasing a series of miracles emanated from him for the pleasure and well-being of His devotees. These included plucking a variety of fruits from a Tamarind tree near the Chitravathi River, curing devotees of incurable diseases and materialising objects for them as symbols of His Grace and Love. Miracles of this kind are continuing to this day, not only in India but also in many other parts of the world where people searching for God are finding in Him the object and fulfilment of their search.

I am the Lord of the universe. Have implicit faith in Me for I am you and you are Me.

I am with you now, with you always, inside you, outside you, everywhere.

I am your sunshine and your shadow.

So blend with Me, harmonise with Me, the Divine giver of life, the very Omnipresence that you often talk about.

That is what I am..

You can deny Me, but I will always be with you for I am within your heart… Maintain the harmony when you live and work together for harmony in the whole world. Look for Me everywhere.

Feel My presence now, in this very room. Just pause and know that I am here.

I will help you, all of you, for each one of you is helping My mission in one way or another. Never doubt or have any fear.

Baba SOURCE

Notice the Illuminati all seeing eye at the top in this Russian Orthodox Church.

The Illiminous Masonic Pyramid is seen on every U.S. dollar.

Satan’s goal is to produce a one-world religion, where all paths lead to god (Satan).  New Age will be the religion of the beast system, preparing people’s minds to receive the beast.  Christians, now more than ever, need to live in the Word of God: Read It, study It, memorize It, love It, obey It, and preach It.


The Man Believers Think is God
Sai Baba, an Indian holy man, worshipped by many prominent Canadians, is accused of being a sexual predator


The Ottawa Citizen/December 19, 2000
By Bob Harvey

Millions of devotees in Ottawa and in more than 100 countries around the world recently celebrated the 75th birthday of Sai Baba, an Indian spiritual leader they believe is God.

But a growing number of leaders of the movement in Canada, Sweden, the U.S. and other countries have quit: they say Sai Baba is a sexual predator.


UNESCO also recently cancelled its co-sponsorship of a conference in Sai Baba’s home town of Puttaparthi, India, saying it was


deeply concerned about widely-reported allegations of sexual abuse involving youth and children that have been leveled at the leader of the movement.


Raj Midha, the president of Ottawa’s brand new $2-million Sri Sathya Sai Spiritual Centre on Hunt Club, is a believer. Like many devotees, he wears a large ring given to him by the guru.


He materialized it from thin air,” Mr. Midha says.


Television documentaries produced in Australia, India and other countries have used slow-motion to show that such “miracles” are really just clever sleight-of-hand by Sai Baba. But Mr. Midha shrugs off this and other allegations about Sai Baba.


With all big leaders, there have always been people who didn’t like them. Even Jesus was crucified.


What Mr. Midha wants to do is tell how Sai Baba has changed his life and others. He shows off the 156,000-square-foot centre with pride, and points to Sai Baba teachings posted on the walls of the building. He says those teachings can be summarized in eight words: “Love All, Serve All”, and “Help Ever, Hurt Never.”


Mr. Midha, a telecommunications engineer, believes Sai Baba cured his wife’s cancer, and he credits his own work with the Shepherds of Good Hope and other charities to Sai Baba’s teachings. On the centre’s second floor, he is reverent as he enters Sai Baba’s bedroom, which comes complete with bathroom, and a balcony overlooking the worship area on the ground floor.


Sai Baba has taken only one trip out of India, and that was to Uganda. But Mr. Midha and other devotees firmly believe their leader can transport himself around the world at will. Mr. Midha says they know Sai Baba uses his Ottawa bedroom, because they leave a glass of water on his bedside table, and often the glass has been half-drained. About 200 devotees regularly worship at the centre, and some report having seen the holy man while they were praying.


Conny Larsson, a psychotherapist, and once a well-known actor and film star in his native Sweden, has a very different view of Sai Baba. He first met Sai Baba in 1978, built his own apartment near the guru’s headquarters in Puttaparthi, and remained a devotee until last year. Mr. Larsson was the spiritual coordinator of the Sai Baba movement in Sweden, and says he brought tens of thousands of people to India to see Sai Baba by speaking at conferences, writing a book about Sai Baba, and speaking on radio.


Now I feel very guilty,” he says. For the first five years he knew Sai Baba, Mr. Larsson says the guru regularly practised oral sex on him, and asked that Mr. Larsson do the same for him. The guru’s explanation, as it has been for many young men, is that he was correcting Mr. Larsson’s Kundalini, or cosmic force.


I was brainwashed,” said Mr. Larsson in a telephone interview from Sweden.


As a child I was severely molested, and when he did this to me, he told me he was going to correct something. And in my mind, I thought God was healing me of this tragedy. This is the reason he could do what he liked. “Everyone told me I was very special. They puffed me up. For a person so molested and hurt as a child, it was a relief to be someone.


By 1986, Mr. Larsson had talked to many young male devotees, most of them attractive blond westerners, who told him they too had had sex with Sai Baba. He believes Sai Baba has had sex with many more reluctant male followers. Why do they do it? He says it’s because “everyone believes he is divine. They want to believe because they have nothing else,” he said.

For more than 50 years, Sai Baba has been India’s most famous holy man. The number of his followers is estimated at somewhere between 10 million and 50 million, and they include India’s Prime Minister Atal Bihari Vaijpayee; Isaac Tigrett, the co-founder of the Hard Rock Restaurant chain; Simon de Jong, a former New Democrat MP from Saskatchewan; and Kris Singhal, founder of Ottawa’s Richcraft Homes. Birendra, the king of Nepal, Sarah Ferguson, Prince Andrew’s former wife; and many other celebrities have also made pilgrimages to see this lying snake-in-the-grass, freak’n guru.


Every year, hundreds of thousands of people visit Sai Baba’s ashram, and what was once a small village now has an airstrip, a university, a hospital and enough hotels and apartment blocks to accommodate tens of thousands of people.


When you see all these important people moving around there, kings and queens moving around as if they were common people, you start to believe he (Sai Baba) has a divine plan for all mankind,” said Mr. Larsson.


Twice a day, Sai Baba strolls among the thousands of devotees seated in the main temple and chooses people from the crowd for private interviews. Often those chosen for private interviews are young men like Mr. Larsson once was. What prompted him to quit the organization and start speaking out was the abuse suffered by a young Swedish man who asked for his help as a psychotherapist, after six interviews with Sai Baba.


“He told me about the same things that happened to me. The swami opened his trousers and started to masturbate him. He withdrew, but the swami insisted.”


Mr. Larsson then brought the man to a meeting of Swedish leaders of the Sai Baba movement, and told his own story as well. The majority of the leaders resigned, and Mr. Larsson, like many other ex-devotees, put his story on the Internet.


Mr. Larsson’s story is one of many that appear in another Internet posting, The Findings, a 42-page document amassed by David and Faye Bailey, former devotees who once lived in Puttaparthi, and edited a magazine to propagate Sai Baba’s teachings. Mr. Bailey is a British concert pianist and taught students at the Sathya Sai Baba College. When some of his students complained to him about being sexually molested by Sai Baba, he quit the organization and began documenting the stories of abuse..


Glen Meloy, a retired management consultant in California, is another former devotee who is using the Internet to warn others to keep their sons away from Sai Baba. After 26 years of following Sai Baba, he quit when he heard the story of a 15-year-old California boy who said he had been abused on multiple occasions. Mr. Meloy said this boy and others in families of devotees “were born with the idea that Baba is God. So they submit because they’re afraid to displease their parents, let alone God himself, who’s asking them to participate in these acts.”


Mr. Meloy is now bombarding politicians, the White House, Indian newspapers, and the FBI with allegations of abuse by the Indian spiritual leader. He says he gets 50 to 100 e-mails and phone calls a day from former devotees, many of them looking for advice on what to do about the tales of abuse they have heard.


To date, only one former Canadian devotee is willing to go public with his story of being sexually touched. Marc-Andre St. Jean of Montreal said that when he visited Puttaparthi in 1992, Sai Baba took him into a private interview room, and asked him to drop his pants. Then he touched Mr. St. Jean’s genitals. He said he had a kidney problem and at the time he thought Sai Baba was just trying to help him.


But Mr. St. Jean’s story, and that of the son of a Quebec family of devotees, helped persuade seven coordinators of the Sai Baba movement in Quebec to hand in their resignations.

Alain Groven of Montreal’s South Shore was the province’s representative on the national Sai Baba council. He said he and other co-ordinators resigned after comparing the stories of Quebecers to those of Mr. Larsson and others who suffered more severe abuse.


Mr. Groven said that last year, the Canadian organization gave Sai Baba $90,000 as a birthday present, and the 70 centres across Canada probably donated even more this year, for the 75th birthday.


Helen Robitaille said she and the other Montreal-area co-ordinators who resigned wonder why so many others have remained devotees. “But when you believe he is God, and you have invested yourself in a spiritual community, it involves too much to suddenly decide he is not God. Your whole spiritual world falls apart. It’s too hard to bear,” she said.

V.P. Singh of Windsor has been president of the Canadian Sai Baba organization for the past 30 years. He said he does not care to read the allegations against Sai Baba, and like most other devotees, he obeys his guru’s command not to use the Internet.

“I have known him for 30 years, and I have had a nice experience,” he said. Mr. Singh said the Canadian and other leaders who have resigned from the organization around the world “can do whatever they want to do; it’s their business.”

**Hindu “gods” Mislead Their Own People Into Hell!**

India’s Hindu gods Exposed!

By David J. Stewart & Andrew Friedman

It doesn’t take a lengthy article to expose the Hindu religion, because they worship all sorts of false gods.  The more difficult religions to expose are the one’s who claim to be “Christian” and mimic the Christian faith, such as Seventh-Day Adventism (SDA’s).  SDA’s are of the Devil, because the teach works salvation, although the deny it.  The Catholics are guilty of the same double-talk, worshipping Mary while verbally denying it.  Hinduism is easy to expose, if you believe that the Bible is God’s Word.

Ye are My witnesses, saith the LORD, and My servant whom I have chosen: that ye may know and believe Me, and understand that I am He: before Me there was no God formed, neither shall there be after Me. I, even I, am the LORD; and beside Me there is no saviour.-Isaiah 43:10,11

There is only ONE True God, not hundreds.  The Godhead became incarnate in the flesh and Person of Jesus Christ (John 1:1-3,14; 10:33; 1st Timothy 3:16; Colossians 2:9; Revelation 1:8).  The Word of God is abundantly clear in 1st John 2:22,23 that Hinduists are LIARS and ANTICHRISTS…

“Who is a liar but he that denieth that Jesus is the Christ? He is antichrist, that denieth the Father and the Son. Whosoever denieth the Son, the same hath not the Father: (but) he that acknowledgeth the Son hath the Father also.”

Just as Wicca Witchcraft boasts of worshipping HUNDREDS of false gods, so does Hinduism worship a host of false gods…

The Word of God couldn’t be any clearer that JESUS CHRIST is the ONLY way to Heaven…

“Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by Me” (John 14:6).

The unsaved world has always followed religion, but they DON’T have Jesus Christ.  The common consensus today is that it doesn’t matter what you believe, because every religion worships the SAME GOD.  Nothing could be further from the truth.  Muslims deny the Son of God, but John 3:16 says that God sent His only begotten Son into the world to die for men’s sins.  Clearly, we do NOT worship the “same” God.  Hinduism’s gods are of the Devil, because that’s where they originated (from demonic spirits).  The Ten Commandments absolutely forbids worshipping any other God than the God of Israel.  Of course, most Israelites today reject Jesus Christ and worship a false god of their own in Judaism.  Judaism is based upon the morally reprehensible Talmud, which openly blasphemes the Lord Jesus Christ.  The truth has few friends these days.

If you are following Hinduism, you have believed a lie of Satan.  Biblically, there is only one God–manifest in Jesus Christ (1st Timothy 3:16).  Jesus is EQUAL with God the Father in every way (Philippians 2:6-King James Bible).  Jesus is Almighty God!  You don’t have to go to Hellfire, but you will if you die in your sins without Christ.  Hinduism speaks of enlightenment and peace; but the Bible is abundantly clear in Romans 5:1 that peace can only be obtained through Jesus Christ…

“Therefore being justified by faith, we have PEACE with God through our Lord Jesus Christ.”

Satan is a liar, and wants you to believe that you can find peace and understanding through occultism and meditation.  There is NO understanding apart from the Word of God…

“Man’s goings are of the LORD; how can a man then understand his own way” (Proverb 20:24).

You need God my friend.  Hinduism will take you to Hell.  The truth is that you are a sinner, and you need a Savior.  Jesus Christ paid the price for your sins, and mine, because He loves us.  Christ shed His precious blood for our sins (1st Peter 1:18,19).

Most false religions don’t address the issue of sin.  Karma is “cause and effect” much like Buddha taught in Buddhism.  It is the idea that everything one does will affect him in a later life.  Karma is a lie.  Most Hindus live morally upright lives, and are honest and hardworking people; thus, they think that their “Karma” is going to gain them peace and bliss in the afterlife.  Wrong!  2nd Thessalonians 1:8,9 expose such a damnable notion…

“In flaming fire taking vengeance on them that know not God, and that obey not the gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ: Who shall be punished with everlasting destruction from the presence of the Lord, and from the glory of His power.”

It doesn’t matter how high you think your Karma may be, you WILL be punished in the tormentuous flames of Hellfire if you refuse to obey the Gospel of Jesus Christ and die in your sins.  The bottom line is that you are a sinner (Romans 3:10,19-23).  We are all sinners, GUILTY under God’s Law, and justly deserving of Hellfire.  Thus, every man needs a Savior.  Jesus died, was buried, and rose again triumphant.  He shed His blood and applied that blood to the Mercyseat in Heaven to take away our sins.  If you do go to Hell, you will have no one to blame except yourself.  Ye Must Be Born Again!

Hinduism Exposed!


HINDUISM

By Thomas Mowery & Andrew Friedman


The word “Hindu” is of Persian origin and means “Indian.”  Hinduism claims nearly 1 billion followers worldwide.  Approximately 80% of India’s population is Hindu. There are approximately 1.3 million Hindus in North America according to a 1993 census in Encyclopedia Britannica 1999.  There are approximately 200 Hindu temples or Hindu centers in the U.S. (www.probe.org/docs/hindu.html).  Hinduism is the root of Buddhism as Buddha (Gautama) was raised in Hinduism and drew heavily from its philosophies. Hinduism by its nature is eclectic, as it has no definable beginning or founder. Hindus have a saying: “Ekam Sataha Vipraha Bahudha Vadanti,” which may be translated: “The truth is One, but different Sages call it by Different Names” Hinduism like all other non-Christian religions accept various ideas of “God” and cannot define a true saving relationship with the God of heaven and creator of us all.

I). History and Roots of Hinduism:

Hinduism’s Roots Are From 2 Systems:

  • 3rd Century B.C. ancient civilization in the Indus River Valley
  • The Aryan people (a group of wandering nomads from Persia of Indo-European language) who came to the Indus Valley around 1500 B.C.

Its Roots Are Vedic.

“The religion of the Aryans is described in the writings of “holy men” contained in the Vedas (meaning “knowledge” or “wisdom”). The Vedas are four collections of writings composed between about 1500 and 500 B.C., which form the basis for Hindu beliefs, and which reveal a gradual development of religious ideas. The later sections of the Vedas are known as the Upanishads. These Vedic writings are considered inspired. Later Hindu writings, including the renowned Bhagavad Gita” (www.probe.org/docs/hindu.html)

II). Philosophy and Teachings:

Hinduism is marked by the worship and belief in many forms of “God.”  There are nearly 330 million deities in the Hindu belief structure making it difficult to define a major belief system.

While Hinduism has a diversity of beliefs, some common beliefs can be found:

God:

The Hindu concept of God is best described by the series “Star Wars” and its idea of “The Force.”  It is this idea of an undefined “higher power” that has influenced much of Western culture from Alcoholics Anonymous’ “God who you perceive Him to be” and Masonry’s “great architect.”  All of these are a generic “God” that can be anything one chooses Him to be rather than the clearly defined God of Scripture.

  • The Upanishads define God as “Brahman” which is the culmination of their many gods into one “Reality” beyond comprehension.
  • Brahman became known as “Isvara” through the “Trimurti” (three manifestations) of Brahman.  These three manifestations are: Brahma- the creator, Vishnu- the preserver, and Shiva- the destroyer.
  • Ishvara became personified later by 10 mythical incarnations of Vishnu called “Avatars.” Bhagavad Gita says, “When goodness grows weak, When evil increases, I make myself a body. In every age I come back To deliver the holy, To destroy the sin of the sinner, To establish righteousness.” Some of these Avatars have been said to have been Krishna, Rama, Buddha and Jesus Christ, however they must be born in India to be a full Avatar.. Hinduism says that Christ was more a “messenger of God” than an Avatar.
  • According to www.religioustolerance.org Hinduism can be separated in 2 major groups: Vaishnavaism– which regards Vishnu as the ultimate deity (making up 80% of Hinduism) and Shivaism which regards Shiva as the ultimate deity.
  • “Atman is Brahman” a decree of Hinduism that says your true self (Atman) is, as are all living things, Brahman (“God”). Hinduism teaches that we are ignorant of our divine nature and therefore we live with personal desires and egos which cause our pain.  This is the same idea that is taught in Buddhism through the “4 Noble Truths” and much like Scientology’s “thetan” concept.  This is also the reason that many Hindus are vegetarians not wanting to kill any life (“Ahimsa”– non-injury to living things) that might be “God.”

Karma, Samsara & Moksha:

  • Karma is “cause and effect” much like Buddha taught in Buddhism.  It is the idea that everything one does will affect him in a later life.  For some it breeds fatalism in that you are doomed because of the past and so you simply accept it.
  • Samsara is reincarnation or transmigration.  This also was transferred into Buddhism with some changes.  In Hinduism, the soul (atman) is reborn in another body (human or animal).  Along with Samsara is the “Caste” system where people are in 4 basic castes or social classes.  These castes are Brahmins (priests), Kshatriyas (warriors), Vaisyas (merchants, farmers), Shudras (laboring class).  One’s caste is determined at birth or by personal karma and cannot be improved upon.
  • Moksha is liberation, like the Buddhist idea of Nirvana.  Moksha is the solution to karma and attachment to personal goals and desires.  “This can only occur when we truly realize that our separate self is actually an illusion and that only the undifferentiated oneness of Brahman is real. We must therefore strive to detach ourselves from the desires and actions of our ego in order to attain true enlightenment.” (www.equip.org/free/DH-122.htm)

Salvation (Moksha)  3 Paths to Moksha:

  • Through Karma Yoga a system of works guided by the “Code of Manu” with strict rituals and duties throughout life.
  • Through Jnana Yoga a way of knowledge.  Through deep meditation (yoga) one realizes their oneness with the divine Brahman overcoming ignorance (Avidya).
  • Through Bhakti Yoga that is devotion to one of the many gods and goddesses of Hinduism.  This is self-surrender, worship (Puja), participation in the many religious festivals, and pilgrimages to one of the numerous holy sites in India.

III). A Biblical Response to Hinduism.

  • There is but ONE God!

For though there be that are called gods, whether in heaven or in earth, (as there be gods many, and lords many,)

6  But to us there is but one God, the Father, of whom are all things, and we in Him; and one Lord Jesus Christ,

by whom are all things, and we by Him.
(1 Corinthians 8:5-6 KJV)

  • For man to be God is Satan’s original lie!

And the serpent said unto the woman, Ye shall not surely die:

5  For God doth know that in the day ye eat thereof, then your eyes shall be opened,

and ye shall be as gods, knowing good and evil. (Genesis 3:4-5 KJV)

  • Man CANNOT earn or “realize” salvation through any works, meditation, or worship of created images.

Not by works of righteousness which we have done, but according to His mercy

He saved us, by the washing of regeneration, and renewing of the Holy Ghost;”
(Titus 3:5 KJV)

5. Reincarnation contradicts the phenomenon of mediums invoking the spirit of the dead.
6. Spirit possession theory explains all these phenomena.

10. Conclusion.


1. What is Hinduism.

Hinduism.  
Hinduism  is  a  major  religious  and  cultural  tradition  of  the  Indian  subcontinent,  including  belief  in  reincarnation  and  the  worship  of  a  large  pantheon  of  deities.

An  Indian  Yogi,  Sai  Baba,  explains  Hinduism  as  follows:

Hinduism is the oldest religion in the world. The three cardinal principles of Hinduism are: 1) Belief in a series of births (reincarnation). 2) Belief in Avatars of the Lord for the reestablishment of Dharma and the transformation of those who have strayed from it. 3)Belief in Karma, the fact of every activity having its inevitable consequences and of human destiny being shaped by cumulative effect of all these consequences. Karma is the cause of births, the Jivi being compelled to undergo another ordeal for clearing its accounts and becoming free of both debit and credit.
The life aim of Hindus is to reach fulfillment through constant spiritual discipline, the fulfillment that comes from the awareness of one’s Divinity. Merging with the Divine is the attainment of fullness. The Vedas are the soul that sustains the spiritual life of Hindus. They are the breath that that keeps the people alive. The Vedas emanated from God Himself. The great sages received the Vedas as a series of sounds and spread it over the world by word of mouth from preceptor to the pupil. One can know from the Vedas the code of right activity and the body of right knowledge. The Vedas teach man his duties from birth to death. They describe his rights and duties, obligations and responsibilities in all stages of life. In order to explain the Vedas in simpler terms, the Puranas (scriptures) and epic texts appeared in course of time. Two such great epics are the Ramayana and Mahabharata. Another great spiritual text of Hinduism is the Bhagavat Geetha, which helps people to control the agitation of the mind, destroy the delusion, develop true knowledge and make one catch a glimpse of the glory of the Lord.
The word Hindu means those who keep away from the path of violence, away from inflicting injury on others. The essence of all the scriptural texts of Hinduism can be described in one sentence as “Help Ever, Hurt Never”.
Aum, which is a primary symbol of Hinduism, is the symbol of unchanging eternal, universal supreme God. Aum, is the primordial word, which gives life to all the other words. Aum is the origin of creation. It contains the essence of all the Vedas and is the source of all the scriptures.”

Another Indian Yogi, Paramahansa Yogananda  explains Self Realization as the knowing that we are one with the omnipresence of God in body, mind and soul.

2. What is karma and reincarnation.

Karma is  the  sum  of  a  person’s  actions  in  this  and  previous  states  of  existence,  viewed  as  affecting  their  future  fates.  (ie the effects of a person’s actions that determine his destiny in his next incarnation)
The  origin  of  this  word  is  from  the  Sanskrit  karman  which  means  ‘action _  effect _  fate’.

Reincarnation is  the  rebirth  of  a  soul  in  a  new  body.
Incarnation  is   a  spirit  embodied  in  a  living  human  from.
To  incarnate  is  to  be  invested  in a  bodily  form..
The  origin of  this  word  is  from the  Latin  in-  carn-  which  means  ‘into’  ‘flesh’.

Reincarnation is a necessary adjunct to Karma. This is because incomplete punishment for a person’s evil deeds in this life will be completed in future lives.
How else would punishment for the evil deeds of Pol Pot and Idi Amin be justly meted out as these two persons died peacefully in ripe old age.
It is believed that  reincarnation   takes  place  at  conception  or   when  the  baby  is  in  the  womb  or  at  birth.

3. Theory explains phenomena.

A phenomenon is a fact that is observed to exist or happen.
A theory is a system of ideas intended to explain phenomena.
Consistency is a harmonious agreement amongst things or parts without contradictions.
If a phenomenon contradicts a theory, then the theory is inconsistent and is probably false.
If this phenomenon is consistent with another theory, then the second theory should replace the first theory.

4. Reincarnation is a theory to explain the phenomena of

persons being able to recall events experienced by individuals who have died.

The  strongest  evidence  supporting  the  theory  of  reincarnation  is  from  the  work  of  Ian  Stevenson  who  documented  numerous  cases  of  children  ‘recalling’  historical   events  and  relatives  of  deceased  individuals. Some  of  these  amazing  claims  have  been  corroborated.
(Ref:  Old  Souls,  the  scientific  evidence  for  past  lives  by  Tom  Shroder, published  by  Simon &  Schuster,  Rockefeller  Center,  1230,  Ave of the Americas,  New  York,  NY  10020.  ISBN  0-684-85192-X © 1999)

5. Reincarnation contradicts the phenomenon of mediums invoking the spirit of the dead.

Reincarnation cannot explain how temple mediums are able to invoke the spirits of the departed.
If the spirit of the departed has already reincarnated into another body, how can it also appear in the temple medium?

6. Spirit possession theory explains all these phenomena.


To  possess is  to  have  complete  power  over.
The  origin  of  this  word  is  from  the  Latin  possidere   which  means   ‘occupy,  hold’.
Spirit  possession is  the  state  of  being  under  complete  control  of  a  spirit.
Spirit  possession  is  real  ( Mark 1:23-25,  5:1-20,  7:24-30,  9:17-27).
Spirit  possession  can  explain explain how temple mediums are able to invoke the spirits of the departed. It can also explain how some persons are able to accurately recall events experienced by individuals who have long since died.

A  definite  case  of  spirit  possession  is  described  by  Roy  Stemman  about  a  Thai  Buddhist  monk  who  was  born  one  day  before his  previous  body  died.
This  case  cannot  be  explained  by  reincarnation  because  it  would  mean  that  the  baby  was  born  without  a  spirit  and  remained  without  a  spirit  for one  day.
The  logical  explanation  is  that  the  baby  was  already  born  with  an  original  spirit.  One day after birth,  his  body  became  inhabited or possessed by  another  spirit.
(Reincarnation,  Amazing  True  Cases  From  Around  The  World  by  Roy  Stemman (Editor  of  Reincarnation  International),  published  by  Judy  Piatkus  Ltd.. Windmill  Street, London  W1P 1HF. ISBN 0-7499-1708-3 hbk,  ISBN 0-7499-1787-3 pbk. ©1997 (Ref: in  page  38))

I  believe  the  spirit  that  possesses  the  body  of  a  person  suppresses  the  expression  of  the  original  spirit  of  that  person. I  believe  all  possessing  spirits  are  evil,  otherwise  they  would  not  possess.
I  believe  the  Holy  Spirit  does  not  possess.  On  the  contrary,  the  Holy  Spirit  renders  a  person  free  to  choose.

7. Demon  possession.


demon is  an  evil  spirit  or  devil.  A  person  is  demon  possessed  if  he  is  completely   controlled  by  an  evil  spirit.

I  believe demons  are  fallen  angels,  Satan  being  chief  among  them.
A  medium  is  a  person  who  claims  to  be  able  to  communicate  between  the  dead  and  the  living.
Temple  mediums  appear  to  be  able  to  summon  the  spirit  of  the  departed.  They  go  into  a  trance,  as  if  possessed,  before  they  appear  to  talk  like  the  deceased  person.  I  believe  that  the  demonic  spirit  which  has  possessed  the  departed  individual  was  invited  by  the  medium  to  speak  through  the  medium.

I  believe  yoga  meditation,  which  involves  a  process  of  emptying  oneself  of  logic  and  reason,  is  a  ploy  by  Satan  to  deceive  the  devotee  into  preparing  himself  as  fertile  ground  for  demon  possession.
Demon  possession  is  evil  because  it  enslaves  and  suppresses  the  free  will  of  the  individual.

When  the  Hindu  or  Buddhist  parents  bring  their  children  to  their  temples,  they  are  actually  offering  their  children  as  human  sacrifice  to  demons  for   possession.

I  believe  when  an  unsaved  person’s   body  dies,  his  original  spirit  is  released  into  the  spirit  realm  to  dwell  there  until  the  final  judgment   because  it  is  unable  to  enter  the Kingdom  of  Heaven.

Through  Hinduism  and  Buddhism,  Satan  and  his  fellow  demonic  spirits  have  deceived  many  generations  of  people  in  large  parts of  the  world  into  unwittingly  allowing   their  bodies  and  souls  to  be  possessed.   This  permits  the demonic  spirits  to  ‘reincarnate’  in  them  serially.

I  believe  the  spirit  realm  is  the  ‘valley  of  the  shadow  of  death’ (Psalm 23:4).
I  believe  the  original  spirit  of  an  individual  is  from  Adonai  and  is  eternal.  When  an  individual’s  body  dies,  his  original  spirit  leaves  the  body  and  enters  the  spirit  realm.

When  a  person  accepts  Yeshua  as  Savior,  his  or her  spirit  becomes  a  sibling  of   Yeshua  who  is  the  first  born  of  Adonai (Abba).   As  this  spirit  is  a  relative  of  Abba,  it  is  permitted  to  enter  and  ‘dwell  in  the  house  of  the  Lord  forever’ (Psalm  23:6).

If  a  person,  during  his  lifetime,  has  not  accepted  Yeshua  as  his  Savior,  his  spirit  is  not  sanctified (separated as holy).  Even  if  he  has  performed  many  miracles  in  the  name  of  Adonai,  his  spirit  would  not  be  permitted  to  enter  the  kingdom  of  heaven (Matthew  7: 21-23).
When  his  body  dies,  his  spirit  would  remain  in  the  spirit  realm  until  the  day  of  final  judgment, when  he  will  be  cast  into  the  lake  of  fire  to  be  tormented  forever  (Revelation 20:11-15).
8. Deception.


Deception means to  deliberately   mislead  or  misrepresent  the  truth;  to  swindle,  hoax,  cheat,  dupe,  fool,  or  entrap.

I  believe the theory of spirit possession is able to explain all the phenomena attributed to the theory of reincarnation as well as explain the phenomenon of invoking the spirits of the departed.
Because of this, I consider the theory of reincarnation as redundant, unnecessary and even false.

As the theory of reincarnation is open to question, it then follows that the theory of karma is also open to question.

As the theories of reincarnation and karma form the foundations of  Hinduism, Buddhism and New Age, then these systems of belief are also open to question.
Then what is the purpose of the theory of reincarnation?

I believe the purpose is deception.

I  believe  this  concept  of  Nirvana  is  a  deception  hatched  by  Satan  and  his  fellow  demonic  spirits

I  believe  the  demonic  spirit  seeks  to  escape  from  the  valley  of  the  shadow  of  death  and  the  eventual  great  white  throne  judgment  and  inevitable  punishment  in  the  lake  of  fire.

I  believe  the  demonic  spirit  believes  that  by  doing  good  works  it  can  seek  favor  with  Adonai  in order to enter  the  kingdom  of  heaven.

I  believe  on  entry  into  the  kingdom  of  heaven,  these demons,  under  the  leadership  of  Satan,  will,  once  again,  attempt  to  overthrow  Adonai.

Since  the  demonic  spirit  is  unable  to  do  good  deeds  in  the  spirit  form,  it  needs  to  incarnate ( to  become  invested  in  a  bodily  form)  by  possessing  the  body  of  some  unsuspecting  person  in  order  to  do  good  deeds.

Hence  it  needs  to  ‘re-incarnate’.
‘Reincarnation’  does  not  occur  with  the  original  spirit  of  an  individual.  ‘Reincarnation’  occurs  with  demonic  spirits.  They  hop  from  body  to  body,  possessing  and  suppressing  the  original  spirit  within  each  new  body.

Through  Hinduism  and  Buddhism,  and  their  core  belief  of  karma  and  reincarnation,  Satan  has  deceived  many  people  into  accepting  and  believing  that  by  doing  good  works,  a  person  would  qualify  to  have  his  spirit   elevated  from  one  lifetime  to  the  next  in  order  to  eventually  reach  a  state  of  spiritual  ‘enlightenment’.

I  believe  even  rational  and  logical  thinking  persons  can  choose  to  believe  in  ‘reincarnation’.  This  is  because they  have  been  deceived   by  demonic  spirits. They  are  rendered  blind  to  reason  and  logic  regarding  spiritual  matters.

Deception  is  the  signature  of  Satan.

I  believe Adonai  created  man  to  fellowship  with. Adonai  gave  man  dominion  over  the  earth.

The  first  action  of  Satan  to  Adam  and Eve  was  deception.  Satan  possessed  the  serpent  and  duped  Eve  and  Adam  into  eating  the  fruit  of  the  tree of  knowledge  of  good  and  evil,  the  one  which  Adonai  specifically  forbade  them  to  eat.  (Genesis  3:1-7)

By  this  hoax,  Satan  cheated   mankind   of  his  right  standing  with  Adonai  and  dominion  over  the  earth.  Instead,  mankind,  including  myself  came  under  dominion  of  Satan  and  was  headed  for  certain  death.

In  the  ‘fallen’  state,  I  am  unable  to  fellowship  with Adonai.  However,  Adonai  still  wanted  to  fellowship  with  me.

The  triune  Godhead  sent  a  part  of  Himself,   Yeshua  to  earth  as  a  man  to  die  and  bear  the  total  punishment  for  the  disobedience (sin)  of  all  of  mankind  so  that  in  believing  in  this  sacrifice,  my   fallen  spiritual  self  will  die  and  become  reborn  as  a  sibling of  Christ  Yeshua.

As  a  new  creation (2Corinthians 5:17),  I  can  directly  fellowship  with  Adonai  by  casting  all  my  cares  to  Him,  secure  in  the  belief  that  I  have  absolute  right-standing  with  Him  ( Psalm 55:22,  1 Peter 5:7)

When  I  believe  in  Yeshua  as  my  savior,  I  am  freed  from  bondage to  Satan.  Satan  is  powerless  to  prevent  me  from  believing  the  good  news  of  the  divine  exchange.

What  he  can  do  is  to attempt  to  deceive  me  with  alternative  routes  to  Adonai  like  Hinduism,  Buddhism,  New  Age  and  Islam.

Satan  inspired  Hinduism  and  Buddhism  with  the  core  beliefs  of  Karma  and  reincarnation..

The  concept  of   reincarnation    has  been  debunked  by  the  concept  of  demonic  spirit  possession  explaining  all  the  ‘evidence’  proffered  for  reincarnation.

Hence  reincarnation  is  a  lie and  Hinduism,  Buddhism,  and  New  Age  beliefs  are  deceptions.  They  bear  the  signature  of  Satan.

With  the  death  burial  and  resurrection  of  Yeshua,  Satan  has  had  been  stripped  of  his  power  over  me  and  over  anyone  else  who  believe  in  the  risen  Yeshua  Christ.

The  demonic  possessing  spirit  prevents  the  person  from  hearing  and  understanding  the  good  news  of  Grace.

In  order  to  set  free  any  person  under  bondage  of  demonic  spirits,  one  can  drive  out  demons  by  calling  on  the  name  of  Yeshua  because  ‘at  the  name  of  Yeshua,  every  knee  will  bow’  (Philippians  2:10)..

Once  liberated,  that  person, if chosen by Adonai,  would  be  able  to  see  and  believe  the  Gospel (good news)  which  is  ‘Adonai  so  loved  the  world  that  he  gave  his  one  and  only  Son  so  that  whoever  believes  in  him  shall  not  perish  but  have  eternal  life (John 3:16).

9. Works  versus  grace.

Most  religions  include  in  their  system  of  beliefs  the  belief  that  doing  good  deeds  and  avoiding  bad  deeds  make  a  person  more  spiritually  ‘pure’  and  therefore  more  acceptable  by  the  creator.

I  believe  one  of  the  main  deceptions  of  Satan  is  the  belief  that  ‘do  good  gets  good  and  do  bad  gets  bad  and   that  if  a  person’s  good  deeds  outnumber  the  bad,  he  gets  to  enter  heaven.  This  is  contrary  to  my  belief  that  a  person  can  never  by  his  good  deeds  qualify  for  entry  into  heaven.  It  is  only  by  the  grace  of  Abba  that  those  who  have  been  chosen  will  be  invited  into  heaven.

Grace  Christianity  is  the  only  belief  system  which  holds  that  nothing   man  does   will  qualify  him  to  be  acceptable  by  Adonai,  and  that  it  is  only  by  the  grace  of  Adonai  is  man  accepted  by  Adonai.    The  grace  of  Adonai  is  His  son,  Yeshua.  Only  by   accepting  Yeshua  as  my  personal  savior  can  I  be  accepted  by  Adonai.  All  other  ways,  including  doing  good  deeds  count  for  nothing.  Yeshua’s  voluntary  death  at  the  cross  permitted  an  exchange  to  take  place,  his  life  for  mankind’s  death,  his  perfection  for  man’s  imperfection,  his  goodness  for  man’s  evil  etc.   Also,  Yeshua  came  to  life  again  and  returned  to  his  father  the  creator..

Because  I  choose  to  accept  Yeshua  as  my  personal  savior,  I  become  a  sibling  of  Yeshua.  At  the  moment  of  my  bodily  death,  as  a  relative  of  Adonai,  my spirit  can  then  enter and ‘dwell in  the   house  of  the  Lord  forever’ (Psalm 23:6)..  Because  I  believe  in  Yeshua,  my  spirit  welcomes  the  Holy  Spirit.  With  the  Holy  Spirit  dwelling  within  me,  all  possessing  spirits  would  be  driven  out.  The  Holy  Spirit  will never  leave  me  nor  forsake  me  forever (Deuteronomy  31:8).

When  an  individual  does  not  have  the  Holy  Spirit  dwelling  within,  he  is  open  to  demonic  spirit  possession  and  is  especially  vulnerable  when  depressed  or  despondent.

10. Conclusion.
I  believe  Grace  Christianity  is  the  only way  of  reaching  my  creator,  Adonai.  All  other  ways,  though  appealing,  are  not  genuine  and  may  lead  to  possession  by  demons.
Because  I  believe  in  free choice  after making  my  choice,  I  choose  freedom  from  demon  possession  by   calling  upon  the  name  of  Yeshua.

Back to Which religion should I choose to believe in

The following is a collection of relevant definitions and comments.
My own comments and beliefs are in the Times New Roman font.
Quotations from other sources are in the Arial narrow font.

Atman.
In  Hinduism,  atman is  the  spiritual  life  principle  of  the  universe,  especially  when  regarded  as  existing  within  the  real  self  of  the  individual. The  origin  of  this  word  is  from  the  Sanskrit  ătman  which  means  ‘essence’.

Avatar.
In  Hindu  belief,  an  avatar is  a  manifestation  of  a  deity  or  released  soul  in  bodily  form  on  earth.  It  is  also defined  as  an  incarnation  of  god  on  earth. The plural  form  is  avatara.
An  example  is  Krishna.  One  living  guru,  Sai  Baba  claims  to  be  an  avatar.  He  has  been  reputed  to  have  performed  many  miracles.

Bodhisattva.
A person who is able to reach nirvana but delays doing so through compassion for suffering beings.

Buddhism.
Buddhism  is  a  widespread  Asian  religion  or  philosophy  founded  by  Siddartha  Gautama  (Buddha;c.563-c.460 BC)  in  north  east  India  in  the  5th century  BC,  which  teaches  that  elimination  of  the  self  and  earthly  desires  is  the  route  to  enlightenment..

Deity.
God  or  goddess,  especially  in  polytheistic  religion.

Dharma.
The  eternal  law  of  the  cosmos,  inherent  in  the  very  nature  of  things. Dharma is a Sanskrit term that denotes the underlying order of the cosmos and of life. It is symbolized by the wheel.  In the sphere of morality and ethics, it means ‘the right way of living’. Dharma is a concept originating from India. There are various versions of dharma, the Hindu version, the Buddhist version, the Jain version and the Sikh version. The proponents of each believe theirs to be the ‘right’ or in truest accord with the deepest realities of nature.

Guru.
Guru is  a Hindu  spiritual  teacher.  Origin  from  Hindi  and  Punjabi.  The  origin  of  this  word  is  from  the  Sanskrit  ‘guru’  which  means  ‘weighty,  grave’,  hence,  ‘elder,  teacher’.

Hinduism.
Hinduism  is  a  major  religious  and  cultural  tradition  of  the  Indian  subcontinent,  including  belief  in  reincarnation  and  the  worship  of  a  large  pantheon  of  deities.

An  Indian  Yogi,  Sai  Baba,  explains  Hinduism  as  follows:

Hinduism is the oldest religion in the world. The three cardinal principles of Hinduism are: 1) Belief in a series of births (reincarnation). 2) Belief in Avatars of the Lord for the reestablishment of Dharma and the transformation of those who have strayed from it. 3)Belief in Karma, the fact of every activity having its inevitable consequences and of human destiny being shaped by cumulative effect of all these consequences. Karma is the cause of births, the Jivi being compelled to undergo another ordeal for clearing its accounts and becoming free of both debit and credit.
The life aim of Hindus is to reach fulfillment through constant spiritual discipline, the fulfillment that comes from the awareness of one’s Divinity. Merging with the Divine is the attainment of fullness. The Vedas are the soul that sustains the spiritual life of Hindus. They are the breath that that keeps the people alive. The Vedas emanated from God Himself. The great sages received the Vedas as a series of sounds and spread it over the world by word of mouth from preceptor to the pupil. One can know from the Vedas the code of right activity and the body of right knowledge. The Vedas teach man his duties from birth to death.. They describe his rights and duties, obligations and responsibilities in all stages of life. In order to explain the Vedas in simpler terms, the Puranas (scriptures) and epic texts appeared in course of time. Two such great epics are the Ramayana and Mahabharata. Another great spiritual text of Hinduism is the Bhagavat Geetha, which helps people to control the agitation of the mind, destroy the delusion, develop true knowledge and make one catch a glimpse of the glory of the Lord.
The word Hindu means those who keep away from the path of violence, away from inflicting injury on others. The essence of all the scriptural texts of Hinduism can be described in one sentence as “Help Ever, Hurt Never”.
Aum, which is a primary symbol of Hinduism, is the symbol of unchanging eternal, universal supreme God. Aum, is the primordial word, which gives life to all the other words. Aum is the origin of creation. It contains the essence of all the Vedas and is the source of all the scriptures.”

Another Indian Yogi, Paramahansa Yogananda  explains Self Realization as the knowing that we are one with the omnipresence of God in body, mind and soul.

Jainism
Jainism is one of the oldest religions in the world originating in ancient India. The Jains follow the teachings of the 24 Jinas (conquerors) who are known as Tirthankars. The 24th is the 6th  century BC Mahavira.
Jains believe that every human has an eternal soul and is responsible for his actions.. The Jain religion places great emphasis on Karma. Essentially, it means that all people reap what they sow. A happy or miserable existence is influenced by the actions in previous lives.
Jains believe all souls are equal because they all possess the potential of being liberated and attaining Moksha. Tirthankaras are role models because they have attained Moksha.
Jains believe that we should live, think and act respectfully and honor the spiritual nature of all life. Adherents to the faith are required to be vegetarians.
God is viewed as the traits of the pure soul of each living being, chiefly described as infinite knowledge, perception, consciousness and happiness. They do not believe in an omnipotent, supreme, creator being.
Jains hold that this temporal world is full of misery and sorrow. In order to attain lasting bliss, they believe one must transcend the eternal cycle of soul transmigration. They believe the way to break out of this cycle is to practice detachment through rational perception, knowledge and conduct.
Hence Jainism holds re-incarnation and karma as foundational in its religion. Because the theory of re-incarnation has been refuted, I believe Jainism and Jainist beliefs are false.


Karma.
Hindus  and  Buddhists  believe  in  the  concept  of  karma. Karma is  the  sum  of  a  person’s  actions  in  this  and  previous  states  of  existence,  viewed  as  affecting  their  future  fates.  The  origin  of  this  word  is  from  the  Sanskrit  karman  which  means  ‘action _  effect _  fate’.
Hindus  and  Buddhists  believe  that  by  doing  good  deeds,  they  accumulate  positive  karma  credits.  This  would  enable  their  spirit  to  reincarnate  in  a  higher  spiritual  plane  in  the  next  lifetime.
Over  many  lifetimes,  they  would  become  more   enlightened.  Some  eventually  become  enlightened  enough  to  be  like  Gautama  Siddhartha  Buddha  and  attain  the  level  of  nirvana.
Mantra.
A  word  or  sound  repeated  to  aid  concentration  in  meditation.  A Vedic  hymn.  The  origin  of  this  word  is  from  the  Sanskrit  ‘man’  which  means  ‘thought’,  hence  mantra  is  ‘instrument  of  thought’.

Maya.
Maya
is the power by which the universe becomes manifest; the illusion of the phenomenal world. The origin of this word is from the Sanskrit ‘mãyã’ , from mã  ‘create’.


Meditate.
To  meditate  is  to  focus  one’s  mind  for  a  period  of  time  for  spiritual  purposes  or  as  a  method  of  relaxation.

Moksha
Moksha (Sanskrit: liberation) or Mukti (Sanskrit: release) refer in Indian religions to liberation from the cycle of death and rebirth (re-incarnation) and all the suffering and limitation of worldly existence. Liberation is experienced in this life as a dissolution of the sense of self as an egoistic personality, reaching a state of Nirvana.
New  Age.
New  age’  is  a  broad  movement  characterized  by  alternative  approaches  to  traditional  Western  culture,  with  an  interest  in  spirituality,  mysticism,  holism,  and  environmentalism.


Nirvana.
Hindus  and  Buddhists  believe  in  a  state  of  Nirvana or  Nibbana.
Nirvana  is  defined  as  a  transcendent  state  in  which  there  is  no  suffering  or  desire  and  no  sense  of  self.  The  origin  of  this  word  is  from  the  Sanskrit   nirvăna   where  nirvă   means  ‘be  extinguished’.    On  attaining  nirvana,  a  person  is  released  from  the  repeated  cycles  of   reincarnation  and  suffering.

Pantheism.
A  belief  which  identifies  God  with  the  universe,  or  regards  the  universe  as  a  manifestation  of  God.
This concept holds that the creator and the creation are one and the same, and that the creator is not separate from the creation, and that the creator did not precede the creation.
Hence the concept of pantheism is consistent with the core beliefs of Hinduism and most New Age practices.

Reincarnation.
Reincarnation
is  the  rebirth  of  a  soul  in  a  new  body.
Incarnation  is   a  spirit  embodied  in  a  living  human  from..
To  incarnate  is  to  be  invested  in a  bodily  form.
The  origin of  this  word  is  from the  Latin  in-  carn-  which  means  ‘into’  ‘flesh’.

Rig Veda contains reference to Jesus.

In the oldest ‘Hindu’ scripture, Rig Veda, for example, there is evidence of the promised “Prajapathi”, the God who will once come in bodily form, be born to a virgin, be called the Lamb of God, die with unbroken bones for the sins of man on a wood, be resurrected from the dead and will be giving his own flesh to be eaten by people. If any Hindu compares this promised Saviour in the ancient vedic scriptures and early poems of the famous Indian saints and philosophers with the Jesus Christ of the Bible, he will be amazed without having any doubts about the compelling evidence. “Jesus is the Prajapathi”, the Sanskrit name for the promised God in human body who died for the sins of mankind to redeem sinners.

Samadhi.


Samadhi   is  a  state  of  intense  concentration  achieved  through   meditation.  The  origin  of  this  word  is  from  Sanskrit  samădhi  which  means  ‘contemplation’.
Samadhi  has  also  been  described  as  a  state  in  which  one’s  consciousness  becomes  in  unity  with  the  atman.

Yogis  describe  samadhi  as  a  state  of  supreme  happiness.  Hindus  believe  that  they  can  attain  samadhi  by  meditating  and  looking  within  themselves  in  order  to  ‘self-realize’.  The  devotee is  required  to  disciple  himself  to  a  guru  or  yogi  and  move  closer  to  Nibbana  after  many  years  of  meditation,  chanting  of  mantras  and  ascetic  living.

By  the  process  of  Yoga  meditation,  the  devotee  attempts  to  empty  himself  of   all  his  ego  driven  desires,  reason  and  logic.  The  devotee  believes  that  through  practice  and  obedient  following  of  a  Yogi,  he  can  achieve  self  realization.

Self  realization  is  defined  as  the  fulfillment  of  one’s  own  potential.   An  Indian  Yogi,  Paramahansa Yogananda  explains  Self Realization  as  the  knowing  that  we  are  one  with  the  omnipresence of  God  in  body,  mind  and  soul. Another  Indian  Yogi,  Sai  Baba,  states  that  the life aim of Hindus is to reach fulfillment through constant spiritual discipline, the fulfillment that comes from the awareness of one’s Divinity. Merging with the Divine is the attainment of fullness.

Samsara.


Samsara is  the  cycle  of  death  and  rebirth  in  which  life in  the  material  world  is  bound.  The  origin  of  this  word  is  from  the  Sanskrit  samsăra.

Sikhism
Sikhism is a religious belief founded by Guru Nanak Dev 1469 to 1539 in Punjab, India. His writings are compiled in the Siri Guru Granth Sahib

Central in his teaching is the belief that there is one creator God called Satnam Vahiguru or Truth as revealed by Guru Nanak. He saw the universe as a creation of one supreme power, and since the creator was in the world he created, it could not be treated as unreal as proposed in Hinduism and Buddhism.
His teachings did not include the policy of renunciation of the world or detachment from worldly

responsibilities. He denounced the leading of one’s life as an ascetic and put great emphasis on hard work and earning a livelihood. For him taking care of one’s family and providing food and shelter for them was one of the prime duties of man before God.

However, similar to Hinduism and Buddhism, he believed in reincarnation and karma.  Because the theory of re-incarnation has been refuted, I believe Sikhism and Sikh beliefs are false.

Soul.
Soul is  the  spiritual  or  non-material  part  of  a  human  regarded  as  immortal.  The  origin  of  this  word  is  from  the  Old  English, Germanic   sāwol.

Spirit
Spirit is  the  non-physical  part  of  a  person  which  is  the  seat  of  emotions  and  character;   this  is  regarded  as  surviving  after  death  of  the  body,  often  manifested  as  a  ghost… The  origin  of  this  word  is  from  Latin  spiritos  which  means  ‘breath’
.

Yoga.
Yoga is  a  Hindu  spiritual  and  ascetic  discipline,  a  part  of  which,  including  breath  control,  simple  meditation,  and  the  adoption  of  specific  bodily  positions,  is  widely  practiced  for  health  and  relaxation. The  origin  of  this  word  is from  the  Sanskrit  yoga  which  means ‘union’.

Yogi.


yogi is  a  person  proficient  in  yoga.
An  example  of  a  yogi  is  Paramahansa  Yogananda.
Born   Mukunda  Lal  Ghosh  on  Jan  5,  1893   in  the  northern  Indian  city  of  Gorakhpur.  Died  Mar  7,  1952  in  Los  Angeles,  USA.  From  the  age  of  seventeen,  he  was  trained  in  the  yoga  discipline   by  Swami  Sri  Yukteswar  for  ten  years. Paramahansa  considered  his  gurus  as  avatara.   He  was  conferred  with  the  Swami  order  in  1915,  after  graduating  from  the  University  of  Calcutta.  He  founded  a  ‘how  to  live’  school  for  boys  where  yoga  spiritual  training  was  combined  with  modern  educational  methods.  He  went  to  the  United  States,  founded  a  society  called  Self-Realization  Fellowship  in  1920  and  five  years  later  he  settled  in  Los  Angeles.   He  popularized  a  form  of  yoga  called  Kriya  Yoga. He  is  well  known  for  his  ‘Autobiography  of  a  Yogi’  and  an  English  translation  of  ‘The  Bhagavad  Gita’.  In  his  autobiography,  he  refers  to  the part  of  the  brain  above  and  between  the  eyes  as  the ‘Christ  consciousness  center’. His  disciples  have  deified  him  as  an  avatar.

**The Covenant Of The Antichrist?**

June 14, 2009

ANTICHRIST’S COVENANT?

Is the following the Covenant that the Antichrist will “CONFIRM” as stated in Daniel 9:27? It is claimed that this was circulated among jewish organizations in 1992. Obviously, no one else would sign it because it denotes Jerusalem as the capital of Israel. Will the Antichrist someday sign it and confirm it?


The following is a copy of a portion of the original document.


The following is the entire text of the document.


Click on the following site that is circulating petitions for the sovereignty of Jerusalem.

One Jerusalem.org

Read the following commentary by Eddie Chumney about why the world may accept this covenant because of the Antichrist and the international flavor to it.



THE JERUSALEM COVENANT


by Eddie Chumney, Hebraic Heritage Newsgroup



Many believers are not familiar with the Jerusalem Covenant. It was signed by Israel’s leading religious and political leaders on May 19, 1993. Will the False Messiah also sign this covenant with Jerusalem? These are the days when the final status talks regarding Jerusalem are taking place with Israel and the PLO. Only time will tell.

The text of the Jerusalem Covenant can be found here!




Why maybe would the False Messiah be willing to sign the Jerusalem covenant? The hope of the Messianic Age is Isaiah 2:2-4 as it is written:


2 And it shall come to pass, in the last days, that the mountain of the Lord’s house shall be established

in the top of the mountains, and shall be exalted above the hills; and all nations shall flow unto it,

3 And many people shall go and say, Come ye, and let us go up to the mountain of the Lord,

to the house of the God of Jacob;

and he will teach us of his ways, and we will walk in his paths: for out of Zion shall go forth the TORAH,

and the word of the Lord from Jerusalem.

And he shall judge among the nations, and shall rebuke many people:

and they shall beat their swords into plowshares,

and their spears into pruning hooks: nations shall not lift up sword against nation,

neither shall they learn of war anymore.


Inscribed on the United Nations building in NY is Isaiah 2:4,


… they shall beat their swords into plowshares and their spears into pruning hooks …


Is the United Nations the entity that will bring about world peace and fulfill Isaiah 2:4? Hardly. For the quote ignores, that the nations of the world will “beat their swords into plowshares, and their spears into pruninghooks” when the TORAH is taught from Jerusalem by the MESSIAH. For HE shall judge among the nations, and shall rebuke many people:


AND they shall beat their swords into plowshares, and their spears into pruning hooks.


Why might the False Messiah be willing to sign the Jerusalem Covenant? Because it is worded is such a way to promote the internationalization of Jerusalem and make it a city for “all faiths”. Let me highlight a part of the Jerusalem covenant for you.


Today, as old, we hold fast to the truth of the words of the Prophets of Israel, that all the inhabitants of the world shall enter within the gates of Jerusalem; “And it shall come to pass at the end of days, the mountain of the House of the Lord will be well established at the peak of the mountains and will tower above the hills, and all the nations shall stream towards it.


***** “Each and every nation will live in it by its own faith:” *******


Isaiah 2:2-4 does NOT say this. Isaiah 2:2 is quoted in the Jerusalem Covenant:


And it shall come to pass at the end of days, the mountain of the House of the Lord will be well established at the peak of the mountains and will tower above the hills, and all the nations shall stream towards it


but this next verse in Isaiah 2:3 does NOT say (*** Each and every nation will live will live in it by its own faith***) but is says that the TORAH will go forth from Jerusalem.


The Jerusalem covenant continues:


For all the nations will go forward, each with its own Divine Name; we shall go in the name of the Lord our God forever and ever,


Isaiah 2:3 does NOT say that “all the nations will go forward, each with its own Divine Name” but the TORAH will go forth from Jerusalem. In Zechariah 14:16-17, ALL NATIONS will be REQUIRED to keep the Feast of Tabernacles not “each in its own Divine name”


The Jerusalem covenant is written with phrases to be tolerant of all religions. During the days of Isaiah 2:2-4, it is the TORAH which will go forth from Jerusalem (Isaiah 2:3) and the Messiah will rule them “with a rod of iron” (Revelation 19:15) and HE will JUDGE among the nations (according to the Torah) (Isaiah 2:4).

In Deuteronomy 4:2 it is written:


You shall not add unto the word which I command you, neither shall you diminish from it, that you may keep the commandments of the Lord your God which I command you


They have “added” the “universality of Jerusalem being a religion of all faiths” to the Jerusalem covenant.

With the covenant of Jerusalem having this “universality” phrase to it, it fits the agenda of the United Nations plan and goal for Jerusalem in conjuction with the New World Order to have it be an international city of “all faiths”.


This phrase in the Jerusalem covenant discussed above is consistent with the goal of the Israel/PLO peace process. The Israel/PLO peace is based upon U.N Resolutions 242 and 338. Implied in U.N. Resolution 242 is for Jerusalem to be divided according to the original U.N. plan for the state of Israel in 1947 and become an international city. So, the false Messiah may be willing to sign the Jerusalem covenant.


Therefore, “pray for the peace of Jerusalem, they shall prosper that love thee” (Psalm 122:6) because “he that keeps Israel neither slumber nor sleep” (Psalm 121:4)




Email me, if you have questions or want to know more, because I love to talk about my God! My God likens me to His future bride and like any pending bride I love to talk about my betrothed and about our future wedding day when He will truly, totally take care of me in the way that is best for me!!!

Sincerely,


Andrew Friedman

Mark of the Beast

Mark of the Beast - Head and HandMark of the Beast - Implant


Mark of the Beast The Mark of the Beast described in Revelations chapter 13 is one of the most interesting portions of Bible Prophecy. First here’s the actual verses:

And [the Antichrist] causeth all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and bond, to receive a mark in their right hand, or in their foreheads:

And that no man might buy or sell, save [except] he that had the mark, or the name of the beast, or the number of his name.

Here is wisdom. Let him that hath understanding count the number of the beast: for it is the number of a man; and his number is Six hundred threescore and six. Rev 13:16-18 KJV


So according to this passage in the Bible the Antichrist will force everyone to accept a mark in either the right hand or forehead of the wearer. Without this mark you won’t be able to buy or sell. And then for a bit of intrigue it says, “If you’re smart figure this out, the number of the Beast (which has something to do with the Mark) is 666.”

Many people that will be a chip implant. It definitely fits the bill of a mark that enables you to buy or sell. If so, then this is the first generation technologically that is capable of such a feat. Not only is the this technology being tested and implemented, it’s also being accepted by society (see below). Hardly a week goes by without mention of it in the news media, science journals or elsewhere.
Here’s what we know about 666.

Here are study resources on our site about the Mark of the Beast:

T9818 The Mark

The Bible warns that taking the Mark of the Beast is no little thing. Our souls are at stake if we receive it. It is critical that we recognize what “taking the mark” is, and not just put it off as some future event. We believe it is right here. The world system has succeeded in marking almost every one of us through birth certificates, licenses, permits, and social security numbers.

T9828 A License is a Mark

The kingdoms of the world mark their subjects with licenses. We are to be marked by Christ, not by men. Jesus would not register His Kingdom with the kingdoms of the world. He would not bow down to the devil and receive license from him. And if you are under Jesus Christ, your kingdom is not of this world either. If you are deriving your life from Caesar, then get his licenses. But if God is your Father, then get your license from God.

A third of mankind was killed by the three plagues of fire, smoke and sulfur that came out of their mouths.
Revelation 9:18

This century is remarkable for the number of apparitions of Jesus and Mary. Our Lady of Fatima is perhaps the most well known, but since then, three separate visitations of Jesus and Mary stand out in terms of the importance of the message that was proclaimed.

In each case the message to us is that God loves us with infinite love and compassion, and calls all of humanity to a loving friendship with him by repenting of our sins and converting our lives into conformity with His commandments.

We are told that we must choose whether we will meet Him through the gates of His Mercy, or the gates of His Justice.

There are no other options: indifference or indecision is, in effect, a choice for God’s Justice!

The following pages contain an outline of the Divine Mercy devotion, Our Lady of Akita, and the continuing apparitions of Mary, the mother of Jesus, at Medjurgorje.

The actual prophetic words concerning the warning are highlighted in yellow.

1. Divine Mercy Devotion

On October 5, 1938 a young nun by the name of Sister Faustina (Helen Kowalska) died in a convent of the Congregtation of Sisters of Our Lady of Mercy in Cracow, Poland. She came from a very poor family that had struggled hard on their little farm during the terrible years of World War 1. She had only three years of very simple education. Hers were the humblest tasks in the convent, usually in the kitchen or the vegetable garden, or as a porter.

Divine Mercy Image

On Feb. 22, 1931, Our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ appeared to this simple nun, bringing with him a wonderful message of Mercy for all humanity. Sister Faustina tells us in her diary under this date: “In the evening when I was in my cell, I became aware of the Lord Jesus clothed in a white garment. One hand was raised in blessing, the other was touching the garment at the breast. From the opening in the garment at the breast there came forth two large rays, one red, and the other pale. In silence I gazed intently at the Lord; my soul was overwhelmed with fear, but also with great joy. After a while Jesus said to me: ” paint an image according to the pattern you see, with this inscription: ‘Jesus, I trust in you. ‘ ”
Some time later, Our Lord again spoke to her: ” The pale ray stands for the Water which makes souls righteous; the red ray stands for the Blood which is the life of souls. These two rays issued forth from the depths of my most tender Mercy at that time when My agonizined heart was opened was opened by a lance on the Cross…. Fortunate is the one who will dwell in their shelter, for the just hand of God shall not lay hold of him”


The Promise


Our Lord told her that He wanted this picture to be venerated and attached a promise to it:
“I promise that the soul that will venerate this picture will not perish. I further promise to that soul victory over enemies here on earth and especially in the hour of death. I myself, shall defend that soul as My own Glory….” I will preserve the cities and homes in which this image shall be venerated.”


The Chaplet


In 1933, God gave Sister Faustina a striking vision of His Mercy. She tells us: ” I saw a great light, with God the Father in the midst of it. Between this light and the earth I saw Jesus nailed to the Cross and in such a way that God, wanting to look upon the earth, had to look through Our Lord’s wounds. And I understood that God blessed the earth for the sake of Jesus.” Of another vision on September 13, 1935, she writes: “I saw an Angel, the executor of God’s wrath… about to strike the earth…. I began to beg God earnestly for the world with words which I heard interiorly. As I prayed in this way, I saw the Angel’s helplessness, and he could not carry out the just punishment…”


The following day an inner voice taught her to say this prayer (The Chaplet) on ordinary rosary beads:
“First say one ‘Our Father’, ‘Hail Mary’ and ‘the Apostle’s Creed’.
Then on the large beads say the following words:

‘Eternal Father, I offer you the Body and Blood, Soul and Divinity of Your dearly beloved Son, Our Lord Jesus Christ, in atonement for our sins and those of the whole world.’

On the smaller beads you are to say the following words:

‘For the sake of His sorrowful passion have mercy on us and the whole world’

In conclusion you are to say these words three times:
‘Holy God, Holy Mighty One, Holy Immortal One, have mercy on us and on the whole world. ‘ “


Jesus said later to Sister Faustina: “Say unceasingly this chaplet that I have taught you. Anyone who says it will receive great Mercy at the hour of death. Priests will recommend it to sinners as the last hope. Even the most hardened sinner, if he recites this chaplet even once, will receive grace from My infinite Mercy. I want to give unimaginable graces to those who trust in My Mercy.”

Jesus told Sister Faustina to write down many things in over 600 pages of diary entries.


Mercy for All

(Webmaster’s note: This section has been expanded to greater emphasise the Mercy of God which is greater than His justice. All quotes are taken directly from St Faustina’s diary and paragraph numbers are included. The words of Jesus are in italics.)


“Write, the greater the sinner, the greater the mercy. Summon all those to confidence in the incomprehensible depth of My Mercy for I desire to save all. The Well of Mercy was opened wide with a lance on the Cross, for all souls. I do not exclude anyone…No souls that come to Me depart without being comforted”

1059. “Encourage souls to place great trust in My fathomless mercy. Let the weak sinful soul have no fear to approach Me, for even it had more sins than there are grains of sand in the world, all would be drowned in the unmeasurable depths of my mercy.”

1146. “Let the greatest sinners place their trust in My mercy. They have the right before others to trust in the abyss of My mercy. Souls that make an appeal to My mercy delight Me. To such souls I grant even more graces than they ask. I cannot punish even the greatest sinner if he makes an appeal to My compassion.

1275 “Write that I am more generous toward sinners than the just. It was for their sake that I came down from heaven; it was for their sake that My Blood was spilled. Let them not fear to approach Me; they are in most need of my mercy”

1397. “The loss of each soul plunges Me into mortal sadness. The prayer most pleasing to Me is prayer for the conversion of sinners. Know, my daughter, that this prayer is always heard and answered.”

1448. “Were a soul like a decaying corpse so that from a human standpoint, there would be no hope of restoration and everything would already be lost, it is not so with God. The miracle of Divine Mercy restores the soul in full. Oh, how miserable are those who do not take advantage of the miracle of God’s mercy! You will call out in vain, but it will be too late.”

1485. “I never reject a contrite heart”

1488.  “You are dealing with the God of mercy, which your misery (sinfulness) cannot exhaust. Remember, I did not allot only a certain number of pardons.”

1541. “Write this for the benefit of distressed souls: when a soul sees and realises the gravity of its sins, when the whole abyss of the misery into which it immersed itself is displayed before its eyes, let it not despair, but with trust let it throw itself into the arms of My mercy, as a child into the arms of its beloved mother. These souls have a right of priority to My compassionate Heart, they have first access to My mercy. Tell them that no soul that has called on My mercy has been disappointed or brought to shame. I delight particularly in a soul which has placed trust in My goodness.”


End Times


Jesus said Write down these words, My daughter. Speak to the world about My Mercy; let all mankind recognize My unfathomable Mercy. It is a sign for the end times; after it , will come the day of justice. While there is still time, let them have recourse to the fount of My Mercy; let them profit from the Blood and water which gushed forth for them…….. before I come as the just one, I first open wide the gates of My Mercy. He who does not pass through the gates of My Mercy must pass through the gates of justice.

Before I come as the just judge, I am coming first as the King of Mercy. Before the day of justice arrives, there will be given to people a sign in the heavens of this sort:

All light in the heavens will be extinguished, and there will be a great darkness over the whole earth. Then the sign of the cross will be seen in the sky, and from the openings where the hands and the feet of the Saviour were nailed will come forth great lights which will light up the earth for a period of time. This will take place shortly before the last day.”

On a later occasion Our Lady appeared to St Faustina and said the following words: “I gave the Saviour to the world. As for you, you have to speak to the world about His great mercy and prepare the world for the Second Coming of Him who will come, not as a merciful saviour, but as a just Judge. O how terrible is that day! Determined is the day of justice, the day of divine wrath. The angels tremble before it. Speak to souls about this great mercy while it is still time for mercy. If you keep silent now, you will be answering for a great number of souls on that terrible day.”


Blessings


Jesus told Sr. Faustina “Tell souls who spread the honour of my mercy I shield through their entire life and at the hour of death I will not be a judge for them, but the Merciful Saviour.

1540. “My daughter, write down these words: All souls who will glorify My mercy and spread it’s worship, encouraging others to trust in My mercy, will not experience terror at the hour of death. My mercy will shield them in that final battle…”


The Hour of Great Mercy


Our Lord made this request of Sr. Faustina: “At three o’clock implore My Mercy especially for sinners; and, if only for a brief moment, immerse yourself in my Passion, particularly in My abandonment at the moment of agony. This is the hour of great mercy for the whole world….In this hour I will refuse nothing to the soul that makes a request of Me in virtue of My Passion”.


Feast of Mercy


Jesus told Sr. Faustina that He wanted a new feast to celebrate His Divine Mercy: “My daughter, speak to the world of My inexhaustible Mercy. I desire that this feast be a refuge and shelter for all souls, especially for poor sinners. The very depths of My Mercy will be opened on that day. I will pour out a sea of graces upon those souls that will approach the fount of My Mercy on this day. …Let no soul fear to come to Me, even if its sins be as scarlet. This feast emerged from the bosom of My Mercy and is founded in the depths of My Mercies. I desire that it be celebrated with great solemnity on the first Sunday after Easter ….”Whoever receives the Source of Life ( i.e. goes to Holy Communion and Confession) on this day will be granted complete forgiveness of sins and punishment.” Jesus asked that this feast be preceded by a novena, consisting of the recitation of the Chaplet for nine days preceding the Feast of Divine Mercy , commencing on Good Friday. ” By this novena I will grant souls all possible graces”


Conversion Prayer


Jesus said: “I desire that you know more profoundly the love that burns in my heart for souls, and you will understand this when you meditate upon My Passion. Call upon My Mercy on behalf of sinners; I desire their salvation. When you say this prayer, with a contrite heart and with faith on behalf of some sinner, I will give that soul the grace of conversion.”
This is the prayer:


O Blood and Water, which gushed forth from the heart of Jesus as a fount of mercy for us, I trust in You” To bring Jesus into the life of another person (name person), recite this in front of a picture of the Divine Image.


Chaplet of Mercy and the Dying


Jesus said,”Write that when they say this Chaplet in the presence of the dying, I will stand between My Father and the dying person, not as the just judge but as the Merciful Saviour”

Heaven

St Faustina also was given visions of heaven and hell. Of heaven she says: “Today I was in heaven in spirit, and I saw its inconceivable beauties and the happiness that awaits us after death. I saw how all creatures give ceaseless praise and glory to God. I saw how great is happiness in God, which spreads to all creatures making them happy; and then all the glory and praise which springs from this happiness returns to its source; and they enter into the depths of God, contemplating the inner life of God, the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit, whom they will never comprehend or fathom.

This source of happiness is unchanging in its essence, but is always new, gushing forth happiness for all creatures. Now I understand St Paul, who said “Eye has not seen, nor ear has heard, nor has it entered into the heart of man what God has prepared for those who love Him”

Hell

“Most of the souls there are those that disbelieved that there is a hell.”

St Faustina was also shown hell: “Today I was led by an Angel to the chasms of hell. It is a place of great torture; how awesomely large and extensive it is! The kinds of torture I saw:

the first torture that constitutes hell is the loss of God;

the second torture is perpetual remorse of conscience;

the third is that one’s condition will never change;

the fourth torture is the fire that will penetrate the soul without destroying it- a terrible suffering, since it is a purely spiritual fire, lit by God’s anger;

the fifth torture is continual darkness and a terrible suffocating smell, and, despite the darkness, the devils and the souls of the damned see each other and all the evil, both others and their own;

the sixth torture is the constant company of satan;

the seventh torture is horrible despair, hatred of God, vile words, curses and blasphemies.

These are the tortures suffered by all the damned together, but that is not the end of the sufferings. There are special tortures destined for particular souls. These are torments of the senses. Each soul undergoes terrible and indescribable sufferings, related to the manner in which it has sinned. There are caverns and pits of torture where one form of agony differs from another. I would have died at the very sight of these tortures if the omnipotence of God had not supported me:

Let the sinner know that he will be tortured throughout all eternity, in those senses which he made use of to sin.

I am writing this at the command of God, so that no soul may find an excuse by saying there is no hell, or that nobody has ever been there, and so no one can say what it is like.

I, Sister Faustina, by the order of God, have visited the abyss of hell so that I might tell souls about it and testify to its existence. “



Subsequent History


One day in that same year, 1935, Sister Faustina wrote for her spiritual director: “The time will come when this work, which God so commends, [will be] as though in complete ruin, and suddenly the action of God will come upon the scene with great power which will bear witness to the truth. It will be as a new splendour for the church, though it has been dormant in it from long ago.”


This indeed came to pass. On the 6th March, 1959, the Holy See, acting on information that was inaccurately presented, prohibited “the spreading of images and writings advocating devotion to the Divine Mercy in the form proposed by Sister Faustina.” As a result, there followed almost twenty years of total silence. Then, on the 15th April, 1978, the Holy See, after a thorough examination of original documents previously unavailable to it, completely reversed its decision and again permitted this devotion. The one man primarily responsible for this reversal of decision was Karol Cardinal Wojtyla, the Archbishop of Sister Faustina’s home diocese of Cracow. On October 16, 1978, he was elevated to the See of Peter as Pope John Paul II. Sr. Faustina was canonised on the 30th April 2000. God is indeed mysterious and wondrous in his ways!

You Can Receive God’s Mercy Now!


First of all we must admit to our sin and cry out to God for mercy and forgiveness. God will always respond with infinite compassion and merciful love to the sincere cry of one of his children and we are ALL his children.


Secondly we must turn away from sin and resolve to place our lives in the hands of Jesus and to place all our trust in Him, and to obey His commandments.

Thirdly: Pray on a daily basis.

The Chaplet is an excellent form of prayer. Many people have testified that they have received great blessings and graces as a result of adopting the devotion to the Divine Mercy. One Brisbane, Australia man was facing major brain surgery and was also without a permanent job when he cried out to God for mercy and forgiveness for his many sins. Within a few weeks the surgery was cancelled and the condition gradually improved until the symptoms had completely gone. As well as that, he obtained permanent employment with a government department !

Mary has asked each of us to pray the Rosary daily.

Fourthly: Frequent Communion, daily if possible, and monthly confession

Fifthly: Read the Bible on a daily basis even if only for a few minutes. The Bible is the Word of God, and He will speak to you in a powerful way through His Word.

2. Our Lady Of Akita

On April 22, 1984, after eight years of investigations, after consultation with the HOLY SEE, the messages of Our Lady of Akita were approved by the Bishop of the diocese. In the Japanese village of Akita, a statue of the Madonna, according to the testimony of more than 500 Christians and non-Christians, including the Buddhist mayor of the town, has shed blood, sweat and tears. A nun, Agnes Katsuko Sasagawahas received the stigmata and has received messages from Our Lady.

The extraordinary events began on June 12, 1973, when Sr. Agnes saw brilliant mysterious rays emanate suddenly from the tabernacle. The same thing happened on each of the two days that followed.

On June 28, 1973, a cross shaped wound appeared on the inside left hand of Sr. Agnes. It bled profusely and caused her much pain. On July 6, Sr. Agnes heard a voice coming from the statue of the Blessed Virgin Mary in the chapel where she was praying. The statue was carved from a single block of wood from a Katsura tree and is three feet tall. On the same day, a few of the sisters noticed drops of blood flowing from the statue’s right hand. On four occasions, this act of blood flow repeated itself. The wound in the statue’s hand remained until September 29, when it disappeared.

Weeping statue of Mary at Akita

On August 13, Sr. Agnes received a second message. On October 13, (the anniversary of Our Lady’s final appearance at Fatima) she received a final third message.

Two years later on January 4, 1975, the statue began to weep. It continued to weep at intervals for the next 6 years and eight months. It wept on 101 occasions.

Bishop Ito, in 1984, officially recognized the occurrence of the supernatural phenomenon and the Madonna’s messages. Since then there has been a steady influx of pilgrims from throughout the world. Cardinal Ratzinger,(now Pope Benedict) received the Bishop of Nigata, John Shorijo Ito and judged the Virgin’s messages as credible.


Here is part of the third message of Our Lady of Akita to Sr Agnes.


October 13, 1973

“My dear daughter, listen well to what I have to say to you. You will inform your superior.
As I told you, if men do not repent and better themselves, the Father will inflict a terrible punishment on all humanity. It will be a punishment greater than the deluge, such as one will have never been seen before. Fire will fall from the sky and will wipe out a great part of humanity, the good as well as the bad, sparing neither priests nor faithful. The survivors will find themselves so desolate that they will envy the dead. The only arms which will remain for you will be the Rosary and the Sign left by My Son. Each day recite the prayers of the Rosary. With the Rosary, pray for the Pope, the bishops and priests.

The work of the devil will infiltrate even into the Church, in such a way that one will see cardinals opposing cardinals, bishops against bishops. The priests who venerate Me will be scorned and opposed by their confreres…….churches and altars sacked; the Church will be full of those who accept compromises and the demon will press many priests and consecrated souls to leave the service of the Lord.

The demon will be especially implacable against souls consecrated to God. The thought of the loss of so many souls is the cause of my sadness. If sins increase in number and gravity, there will be no longer pardon for them.”

3. Our Lady of Peace at
Medjurgorje


In June 1981, the Blessed Virgin Mary was reported to have appeared to a number of young people in the vicinity of Medjurgorje in Yugoslavia. The extraordinary aspect of these apparitions are that they are continuing to the present day.
Our lady has stated that she has come to call the world to urgent repentance and conversion to God. She gives us grave warnings that God’s chastisement is soon to fall upon the world, but can be mitigated by prayer and penance. She asks each of us to pray the complete 15 decades of the Rosary daily, and to fast on bread and water on Wednesday and Friday.

Blessed Virgin Mary

She has given each of the seers several secrets concerning the future of the world. Each seer will receive ten secrets in all and when this has been accomplished, the apparitions will cease.


Medjurgorje has become a site of pilgrimage to hundreds of thousands of Christians, and numerous miracles of healing and conversion have been widely reported. The complete Medjurgorje story is beyond the scope of this leaflet, but has been well documented in many of the books that have been written on Medjurgorje.



In a report that Father Tomislav Vlasic sent to the Pope and to the Bishop of Mostar at the end of 1983, he gave a summary of the messages and warnings given by Our Lady to the seers:


“The ninth and tenth secrets are grave matters. They are a chastisement for the sins of the world. The punishment is inevitable because we cannot expect the conversion of the entire world. The chastisement can be mitigated by prayers and penance. It cannot be suppressed. An evil which threatened the world, according to the seventh secret, has been eliminated through prayer and fasting, Mirjana said. For that reason, the Blessed Virgin continues to ask for prayer and fasting: “You have forgotten that with prayer and fasting you can ward off wars, suspend the laws of nature”.


After the first warning the others will follow within a rather brief period of time. So it is that people will have time for conversion.


This time is a period of grace and conversion. After the visible sign, those who are still alive will have little time for conversion. For that reason, the Blessed Virgin calls for urgent conversion and reconciliation.”


The invitation to prayer and penance is destined to ward off evil and war and above all to save souls.
According to Mirjana, we are close to the events predicted by the Blessed Virgin. Because of this, Mirjana says to mankind: “Convert yourselves as quickly as possible. Open your hearts to God”

If he had taken warning, he would have saved himself. 6 But if the watchman sees the sword coming and does not blow the trumpet to warn the people and the sword comes and takes the life of one of them, that man will be taken away because of his sin, but I will hold the watchman accountable for his blood.’

***************************
QUESTIONS & ANSWERS
1. Why did you build this site?
I built this site because of a phrophetic word I received while praying on a 3 day retreat in 1994. Part of the prohetic word I received has now come about, and I am now in a position to be able to promote the message. The word I received is in italics below:

My Son, I have called you to be a watchman to the house of Israel. These words tell of the coming wrath and holocaust. The nations have turned against me and follow their own idols, and so they will bring down on themselves my wrath.

I call you to be a watchman and warn the of the things to come; judgement and fire.

My Son, I call you to be a watchman.

I call you to be a faithful servant even if all around you are faithless.

Do not shrink from the task I call you to.

The world will be judged and found wanting and will be punished. You must warn men of the coming judgement or you will be accountable for those who may have heard and responded to the warning.

I will bless you financially so that you may accomplish this task. Be warned however; do not store up for yourself wealth and possessions for all will be consumed.

Give of yourself unstintingly and rely on me alone. Pray for a spirit of detachment from the finances that I will give you. Your task is to be a watchman to the house of Israel. Your temporal activities will serve only to promote My kingdom- to enable you to complete the task I have given you.

My mother will help you. Pray to her for your needs and she will intercede to Me on your behalf. I am unable to refuse My mother and I have given her to you as a great and precious gift. Devote yourself to her more fully, for she will help you carry out My wishes.

I love you. All is well. Trust in Me and pray always. All is well.

I had this word discerned by a priest who is now a bishop and he told me that there was nothing contrary to the Catholic faith in it.

2. Why do you have a picture of a meteorite impact on the top of your site?

This is purely my personal interpretation. In 1994 Comet Shoemaker- Levy collided with Jupiter with incredible force. See http://seds.org/archive/sl9/sl9.html. for pictures of the impacts. A similar impact with Earth would have caused incredible devasatation and wiped out a large proportion of humanity.

This was the first time in human history that we have been able to watch a major meteorite collision with another planet in real time! My personal view is that this was the Lord allowing us to see what could happen to us, however I stress that this is only my personal opinion. I have had no personal revelation on how it could happen.

3. Why do catholics worship Mary?

The short answer is that they don’t. To worship Mary would be a grave sin for she is a created creature. To honour her is good and proper and pleases God. When Jesus was dying on the cross, he turned to John and said “Son, behold thy Mother”. To Mary he said “Woman, behold thy son”. In this way, Jesus indicated that Mary was to become our mother.

Jesus who was without sin, honoured His mother and He expects us to honour our earthly parents and our mother in heaven.

4. Why do Catholics pray to Mary? Why don’t they go straight to Jesus?

As Christians, we think nothing of asking others to pray for us for particular needs such as healing, guidance wisdom etc. We all know of others who seem to have a special gift as intercessors. When catholics “pray” to Mary, what they are really doing is recognising her special gift as intercessor, and ask her to pray to Jesus for them and with them. To me (webmaster), Mary demonstrated her special gift most powerfully when she asked Jesus to help out with the lack of wine at the wedding feast of Cana. Jesus didn’t really want to do this but he, as faithful son, carried out her request.

Protestant evangelicals use this method as well. When they need healing, they don’t go straight to Jesus, but go straight to the tele evangelist, or the one with the healing ministry,  and ask him to go to Jesus for them.

5. Isn’t praying to Mary or the saints communing with the dead, which is prohibited in the bible?

Was Jesus communing with the dead on Mt Tabor when he was speaking with Moses and Elijah? Was he conducting a seance? Of course not. Jesus established a precedent where the faithful can ask for intercession for those we know to be in heaven.e.g. canonized saints.

Attempting to speak with the dead via mediums and the occult is expressly forbidden and is diabolical in nature.

6. Why cant we see the entries in the guestbook?

The feedback I get from the guestbook is 98% very positive and encourages me to go on. However, a small number of entries are full of curses and blasphemies from satanists and atheists. I dont want these to be displayed.

7. Why don’t you respond to personal enquiries and questions?

I get far too many requests to answer personally. I am not a counsellor or debater. My role as a watchman is to sound the warning. Whether people respond or not is up to them. My duty is discharged by sounding the warning. Your duty is to respond.

Plans are Underway to Microchip every Newborn in U.S. and Europe…

Regarding plans to microchip newborns, Dr. Kilde said the U.S. has been moving in this direction “in secrecy.”

She added that in Sweden, Prime Minister Olof Palme gave permission in 1973 to implant prisoners, and Data Inspection’s ex-Director General Jan Freese revealed that nursing-home patients were implanted in the mid-1980s. The technology is revealed in the 1972:47 Swedish state report, Statens Officiella Utradninger
Are you prepared to live in a world in which every newborn baby is micro-chipped? And finally are you ready to have your every move tracked, recorded and placed in Big Brother’s data bank?  According to the Finnish article, distributed to doctors and medical students, time is running out for changing the direction of military medicine and mind control technology, ensuring the future of human freedom.

“Implanted human beings can be followed anywhere. Their brain functions can be remotely monitored by supercomputers and even altered through the changing of frequencies,” wrote Dr. Kilde.  “Guinea pigs in secret experiments have included prisoners, soldiers, mental patients,handicapped children, deaf and blind people, homosexuals, single women, the elderly, school children, and any group of people considered “marginal” by the elite experimenters. The published experiences of prisoners in Utah State Prison, for example, are shocking to the conscience.
“Today’s microchips operate by means of low-frequency radio waves that target them. With the help of satellites, the implanted person can be tracked anywhere on the globe. Such a technique was among a number tested in the Iraq war, according to Dr. Carl Sanders, who invented the intelligence-manned interface (IMI) biotic, which is injected into people. (Earlier during the Vietnam War, soldiers were injected with the Rambo chip, designed to increase adrenaline flow into the bloodstream.) The 20-billion-bit/second supercomputers at the U.S. National Security Agency (NSA) could now “see and hear” what soldiers experience in the battlefield with a remote monitoring system (RMS).

“When a 5-micromillimeter microchip (the diameter of a strand of hair is 50 micromillimeters) is placed into optical nerve of the eye, it draws neuro-impulses from the brain that embody the experiences, smells, sights, and voice of the implanted person. Once transferred and stored in a computer, these neuro-impulses can be projected back to the person’s brain via the microchip to be re-experienced. Using a RMS, a land-based computer operator can send electromagnetic messages (encoded as signals) to the nervous system, affecting the target’s performance. With RMS, healthy persons can be induced to see hallucinations and to hear voices in their heads.
“Every thought, reaction, hearing, and visual observation causes a certain neurological potential, spikes, and patterns in the brain and its electromagnetic fields, which can now be decoded into thoughts, pictures, and voices. Electromagnetic stimulation can therefore change a person’s brainwaves and affect muscular activity, causing painful muscular cramps experienced as torture.”

The Mark of the Beast – Means Total Surveillance of Livestock, too…

The National Animal Identification System (NAIS) is set up to put RFID tags in all livestock.  This means total surveillance of all livestock.  It is mandatory by January 2008.  This means if you have one chicken, one horse, one cow, one sheep, one goat, one bison, one sheep, one goat, one llama, one alpaca, one turkey, or one duck, etc – you must register, the premises and the animals. Who do you think will be next?  You and me.

GPS Device Finds Bank Robbery Suspect …


Cincinnati, OH — Police say modern technology foiled an old-fashioned bank robbery.  A teller placed an electronic Global Positioning System device in a bag of stolen money, allowing police to track down a suspect in just 42 minutes Thursday.
“Around here (GPS) is still relatively rare,” Hamilton County sheriff’s office spokesman Steve Barnett said. “But with the advancement in technology and the continued success of catching bank robbers, soon I would hope that other financial institutions would jump on board.”   Authorities said that after William Ingram, 46, left a U.S. Bank in suburban Colerain Township, the GPS device tracked him to a car dealership in Hartwell, where he was returning a Honda that he had borrowed for a test drive but actually used as a getaway car.  When Ingram was confronted, money began spilling from his pockets, officials said.
EDITOR’S Comment: There will be no place to hide for anyone who takes the Mark of the Beast.

Three R’s: Reading, Writing, RFID (Radio Frequency Identification) chips…Magnified image of actual tag found in Gillette Mach3 razor blades.

Gary Stillman, the director of a small K-8 charter school in Buffalo, New York, is an RFID (Radio Frequency Identification) believer.
While privacy advocates fret that the embedded microchips will be used to track people surreptitiously, Stillman said he believes that RFID tags will make his inner city school safer and more efficient.

666 the Mark of the Beast Stillman has gone whole-hog for radio-frequency technology, which his year-old Enterprise Charter School started using last month to record the time of day students arrive in the morning. In the next months, he plans to use RFID to track library loans, disciplinary records, cafeteria purchases and visits to the nurse’s office. Eventually he’d like to expand the system to track students’ punctuality (or lack thereof) for every class and to verify the time they get on and off school buses.
“That way, we could confirm that Johnny Jones got off at Oak and Hurtle at 3:22,” Stillman said. “All this relates to safety and keeping track of kids…. Eventually it will become a monitoring tool

Worship Of The Beastfor us.”
Radio-frequency identification tags — which have been hailed as the next-generation bar code — consist of a microchip outfitted with a tiny antenna that broadcasts an ID number to a reader unit. The reader searches a database for the number and finds the related file, which contains the tagged item’s description, or in the case of Enterprise Charter, the student’s information.

Euro notes may be radio tagged…


Hitachi is rumored to be in talks with the European Central Bank about embedding radio tags into euro banknotes.

Radio tags the size of a grain of sand could be embedded in the euro note if a rumored deal between the European Central Bank (ECB) and Japanese electronics maker Hitachi is signed.
“RFID (Radio Frequency Identification) tags also have the ability of recording information such as details of the transactions the paper note has been involved in. It would, therefore, also prevent money-laundering, make it possible to track illegal transactions and even prevent kidnappers demanding unmarked bills,” Chopra said.


Library adopts Spy Chips…

A civil liberties watchdog group is expressing concern over the San Francisco Public Library’s plans to track books by inserting computer chips into each tome. Library officials approved a plan Thursday to install tiny radio frequency identification chips, known as RFIDs, into the roughly 2 million books, CDs and audiovisual materials patrons can borrow. The system still needs funding and wouldn’t be ready until at least 2005.

Your car tires have RFID’s chips in them ALREADY!!!

Its a us federal sponsored initiative to track vehicles near certain highways feeding certain urban areas.  Basically the FBI enters a rfid number into the database and then history of travel for the car pops up.  The feds can also pre-enter rfids they want to watch after getting a reading off your parked car or from the Canadian-us customs border (where they already actively log the car rfids in the tires and associate them with plates)
Your tires have a passive coil with 64 to 128 bit serial number emitter in them!


Federal Drug Administration approves use of the Mark of the Beast for medical Patients…
Mark on their right hand or forehead

And he shall make all, both little and great, rich and poor, freemen and bondmen, to have a character in their right hand or on their foreheads: And that no man might buy or sell, but he that hath the character, or the name of the beast, or the number of his name.” Carlos Altamirano ismplanted with the VeriChip, a microchip that is used to confirm everything from health history to identity in this July 17, 2003 file photo , in Mexico City. Security has reached the subcutaneous level for Mexico's Attorney General Rafael Macedo de la Concha and at least 160 people in his office- they have been implanted with microchips that get them access to secure areas of their headquarters.(Apocalypse Chapter 13: 16-17)

Medical milestone or privacy invasion? A tiny computer chip approved Wednesday for implantation in a patient’s arm can speed vital information about a patient’s medical history to doctors and hospitals. But critics warn that it could open new ways to imperil the confidentiality of medical records.
The Food and Drug Administration said Wednesday that Applied Digital Solutions of Delray Beach, Fla., could market the VeriChip, an implantable computer chip about the size of a grain of rice, for medical purposes.
With the pinch of a syringe, the microchip is inserted under the skin in a procedure that takes less than 20 minutes and leaves no stitches. Silently and invisibly, the dormant chip stores a code that releases patient-specific information when a scanner passes over it.
Think UPC code. The identifier, emblazoned on a food item, brings up its name and price on the cashier’s screen. At the doctor’s office the codes stamped onto chips, once scanned, would reveal such information as a patient’s allergies and prior treatments, speeding care.
The microchips have already been implanted in 1 million pets. But the chip’s possible dual use for tracking people’s movements – as well as speeding delivery of their medical information to emergency rooms – has raised alarm.

Mexico’s Attorney General required the Mark of the Beast in 160 people.  Thousands more are now planned…
Implanted Chip

MEXICO CITY, MEXICO – Security has reached the subcutaneous level for Mexico’s attorney general and at least 160 people in his office – they have been implanted with microchips that get them access to secure areas of their headquarters.
Mexico’s top federal prosecutors and investigators began receiving chip implants in their arms in November in order to get access to restricted areas inside the attorney general’s headquarters, said Antonio Aceves, general director of Solusat, the company that distributes the microchips in Mexico.
Attorney General Rafael Macedo de la Concha and 160 of his employees were implanted at a cost to taxpayers of $150 for each rice grain-sized chip.  More are scheduled to get “tagged” in coming months, and key members of the Mexican military, the police and the office of President Vicente Fox might follow suit, Aceves said. Fox’s office did not immediately return a call seeking comment.  Aceves said his company eventually hopes to provide Mexican officials with implantable devices that can track their physical location at any given time, but that technology is still under development.
The chips that have been implanted are manufactured by VeriChip Corp., a subsidiary of Applied Digital Solutions Inc. (ADSX) of Palm Beach, Fla.  They lie dormant under the skin until read by an electromagnetic scanner, which uses a technology known as radio frequency identification, or RFID, that’s now getting hot in the inventory and supply chain businesses.  Erik Michielsen, director of RFID analysis at ABI Research Inc., said that in theory the chips could be as secure as existing RFID-based access control systems such as the contactless employee badges widely used in corporate and government facilities.

In addition to the chips sold to the Mexican government, more than 1,000 Mexicans have implanted them for medical reasons, Aceves said. Hospital officials can use a scanning device to download a chip’s serial number, which they then use to access a patient’s blood type, name and other information on a computer.  Still, Silverman said that his company has sold 7,000 chips to distributors across the United States and that more than 1,000 of those had likely been inserted into U.S. customers, mostly for security or identification reasons.
Because the Applied Digital chips cannot be easily removed – and are housed in glass capsules designed to break and be unusable if taken out – they could be even more popular someday if they eventually can incorporate locator capabilities. Already, global positioning system chips have become common accouterments on jewelry or clothing in Mexico.  In fact, in March, Mexican authorities broke up a ring of used-car salesmen turned kidnappers who were known as “Los Chips” because they searched their victims to detect whether they were carrying the chips to help them be located.

Bio-chip implant “VeriPay” arrives for cashless checkless society…
Smart Card


At a global security conference held on November 21, 2003, in Paris, an American company, Applied Digital Solutions, announced a new syringe-injectable microchip “VeriPay” implant for humans, designed to be used as a fraud-proof payment method for cash and credit-card transactions.  The chip implant is being presented as an advance over credit cards and smart cards, which, absent biometrics and appropriate safeguard technologies, are subject to theft, resulting in identity fraud.
Cashless payment systems are now part of a larger technology development subset: government identification experiments that seek to combine cashless payment applications with national ID information on media (such as a “smart” card), which contain a whole host of government, personal, employment and commercial data and applications on a single, contactless RFID chip. “We are the only ones out there offering implantable ID technology,” said Silverman, who announced the “VeriPay” service during a speech Friday at ID World 2003 in Paris. “We believe the market will evolve to use our product.” Go to www.bayside.org

VeriPay – Your Cash Register on the move…

You can now accept credit card payments from your customers anywhere and anytime. All you need is a standard GSM mobile phone, which becomes an EFTPOS terminal in your pocket. You don’t even need to make a phone call – transaction details are simply sent as an SMS text message and confirmed within a few seconds. Ensure the card is good and money is in your bank before you leave the job. No more end-of-day paperwork, visits to the bank or double handling of transactions.

U.N. meeting hears proposal for global human database, ID numbers, to register everyone…

Every person in the world would be fingerprinted and registered under a universal identification scheme to fight illegal immigration and people smuggling outlined at a United Nations meeting today.  The plan was put forward by Pascal Smet, the head of Belgium’s independent asylum review board, at a roundtable meeting with ministers including Australian Immigration Minister Philip Ruddock this afternoon.  But he said the plan could be extended worldwide.

Verichip, a miniaturized, implantable identification device with a variety of medical, security and emergency applications…

Is this the mark of the beast?
VeriChip is an implantable, 12mm by 2.1mm radio frequency device about the size of the point of a typical ballpoint pen. Each VeriChip will contain a unique identification number and other critical data. Utilizing an external scanner, radio frequency energy passes through the skin energizing the dormant VeriChip, which then emits a radio frequency signal transmitting the
identification number and other data contained

Go to www.bayside.org

in the VeriChip. The scanner will display the identification number, but the VeriChip data can also be transmitted, via telephone or the Internet, to an FDA compliant, secure data-storage site. It will then be accessible by authorized personnel. Inserting the VeriChip device is a simple procedure performed in an outpatient, office setting. It requires only local anesthesia, a tiny incision and perhaps a small adhesive bandage. Sutures are not necessary.











Ex-New Jersey surgeon offers himself for experiment
NEWARK — The terrorist attacks on the World Trade Center have spurred a former surgeon from New Jersey to turn himself into a human guinea pig.  Five days after the Sept. 11 attacks, Richard Seelig spent about five minutes implanting two “Verichips” — each no larger than a small breath mint — below the skin of his right forearm and right hip.
Florida firm first to sell ID microchips to be implanted under skin…

“Digital Angel”: technology that cares

The Digital Angel is a computer chip that is smaller than a grain of rice and has a short antenna. It is placed under the skin of a person and the chip sends a signal to cell phone towers and satellites in the sky and it can tell the body temperature, pulse, heartbeat, insulin levels, etc. and it also tells the location of a person anywhere in the world. All this information on a person would be available over the internet. This chip can also be put in furniture or anything of value for tracking in case of theft. It can also be put in food to record temperature and location as it is shipped across the country.

The Digital Angel demonstration will be held on Thursday, October 26, at the Unconvention Center (Pier 94) in New York City. Roughly 200 invitations will be issued to interested members of the national media, potential joint-venture/licensing partners and selected Wall Street analysts. As previously announced, attendees of the event will witness an historical first: the first-ever operational combination of bio-sensor technology and Web-enabled wireless telecommunications linked to GPS location-tracking systems.

Applied Digital Solutions (ADSX) holds all the patents on the Digital Angel. The projected worldwide sales is $100 billion dollars. The stock is currently selling at 36 cents a share. They call it “technology that cares.” We call it the Mark of the Beast or 666.

Back in 2000 Applied Digital Solutions used this above graphic for their Digital Angel product. The angel image on the left was a part of an early ‘splash’ screen for a GPS-based tracking device similar to OnStar or LoJack designed to be worn by or implanted in humans for medical monitoring, location of at-risk individuals, firearms control, and as “a foolproof means of identification for e-commerce security.

The image in the center is the prior image inverted. Many people feel that the line drawing of the angel forms a clear and distinct pattern resembling the number 666 – the Number of the Beast from the Book of Revelations. The image on the right highlights this pattern.  Was this design a deliberate act of sabotage or an unfortunate accident of design or a sign of the prophecy?

And that no man might buy or sell, but he that

hath the character…

“And it was given him to give life to the image of the beast: and that the image of the beast should speak: and should cause that whosoever will not adore the image of the beast should be slain.  And he shall make all, both little and great, rich and poor, freemen and bondmen, to have a character in their right hand or on their foreheads: And that no man might buy or sell, but he that hath the character, or the name of the beast, or the number of his name.  Here is wisdom. He that hath understanding, let him count the number of the beast. For it is the number of a man: and the number of him is six hundred sixty-six.” (Apocalypse Chapter 13: 15-18)

He also shall drink of the wine of the wrath of God…

“And the third angel followed them, saying with a loud voice: If any man shall adore the beast and his image and receive his character in his forehead or in his hand, He also shall drink of the wine of the wrath of God, which is mingled with pure wine in the cup of his wrath: and shall be tormented with fire and brimstone in the sight of the holy angels and in the sight of the Lamb.  And the smoke of their torments, shall ascend up for ever and ever: neither have they rest day nor night, who have adored the beast and his image and whoever receiveth the character of his name.  Here is the patience of the saints, who keep the commandments of God and the faith of Jesus.” (Apocalypse Chapter 14:9-12)

And there fell a sore and grievous wound upon men who had the character of the beast…

“And the first went and poured out his vial upon the earth. And there fell a sore and grievous wound upon men who had the character of the beast: and upon them that adored the image thereof.” (Apocalypse Chapter Chapter 16:2)

Cast alive into the pool of fire burning with brimstone…

“And the beast was taken, and with him the false prophet who wrought signs before him, wherewith he seduced them who received the character of the beast and who adored his image. These two were cast alive into the pool of fire burning with brimstone.” (Apocalypse Chapter 19:20)

But they shall be priests of God and of Christ: and shall reign with him a thousand years…

“And I saw seats. And they sat upon them: and judgment was given unto them. And the souls of them that were beheaded for the testimony of Jesus and for the word of God and who had not adored the beast nor his image nor received his character on their foreheads or in their hands. And they lived and reigned with Christ a thousand years. The rest of the dead lived not, till the thousand years were finished. This is the first resurrection.  Blessed and holy is he that hath part in the first resurrection. In these the second death hath no power. But they shall be priests of God and of Christ: and shall reign with him a thousand years.” (Apocalypse Chapter 20: 4-6)

Our Lady of the Roses’ awesome Bayside Prophecies…

http://www.tldm.org/../Bayside/
These prophecies came from Jesus, Mary, and the saints to Veronica Lueken at Bayside, NY, from 1968 to 1995.

The Mark of the Beast and the Mark of the Living Christ…

You have been asked to wear a sacramental about your neck. Now I will explain why, My children. I have warned you of the unseen evil forces about you. I have cautioned you that your human eyes cannot see this. But it exists and is as solid in their world as you are on your earthly plane. Know this, that there are two camps now on earth: Lucifer on one side and the road to Heaven and its followers on the other. You have all been marked. There are two signs now: the mark of the beast and the mark of the living Christ.
Recognize the signs of the times, My children. The war is on.” – Our Lady of the Roses, March 25, 1972

Insight…

As time goes on, My children of light, you will be able to recognize with your human eyes, through insight from the Eternal Father in the Spirit, those who are marked with the sign of the cross or the beast.” – Our Lady of the Roses, July 25, 1978

Marked with the mark of satan…

My child, there will be very many victims upon earth: those who are willing to sacrifice their own pleasures, their own human pursuits, to give them over to the salvation of souls, their brothers and sisters, who are marked with the mark of satan and are seeking to take it away. There is only one way: conversion, and then cure of the sick soul.” – Jesus, July 25, 1985

Every person of conscionable age…

The final count shall be in the few of those who are to be saved. My children, at this very moment of time upon earth, each and every person of conscionable age has been marked with the sign of the cross and redemption, or they have accepted on free will the mark of the beast, eternal damnation!” -Our Lady of the Roses, August 14, 1978

Be branded…

Each man on earth who has been baptized and set himself up as a follower of My Son in infancy has received the mark of the cross upon him. He can in his lifetime cast this away and be branded with the mark of the beast. This will be of his choice. No man will be lost without his own choice.” -Our Lady of the Roses, December 31, 1972
