The Woman of the Apocalypse

The Woman of the Apocalypse

The Woman of the Apocalypse (or Woman clothed in the Sun) is a figure from Chapter 12 of the Book of Revelation (written c. AD 95).

In this narrative the woman gives birth to a male child that is attacked by the Dragon identified as the Devil and Satan. When the child is taken to heaven, the woman flees into the wilderness leading to “War in Heaven” in which the angels cast out the Dragon. The Dragon attacks the woman, who is given wings to escape, and then attacks her again with a flood of water from his mouth, which is subsequently swallowed by the earth. Frustrated, the dragon initiates war on “the remnant of her seed” identified as the righteous followers of Christ.

The Woman of the Apocalypse is widely identified as the Virgin Mary. This interpretation is held by the ancient Church as well as in the medieval and modern Roman Catholic Church. This view does not negate the alternative interpretation of the Woman representing the Church,[1] as in modern Catholic dogma, Mary is herself considered both the Mother of God and the Mother of the Church (while in Reformed theology and traditions that are averse to Marian veneration, the interpretation of the Woman represents the naturally predominant church).

“And the tail of the great red dragon drew the third part of the stars of/heaven, and did cast them to the earth. And the dragon stood before the/woman which was ready to be delivered for to devour her child as soon as it was born.”
Revelations Ch 12 verse 4
{Revelation 12 presents a history stretching from the time before humans existed until the time just before the Second coming of Christ as King of Kings and Lord of Lords)

Shri Mataji in a conversation with a Sahaja Yogi years ago when She lived at Ashley Gardens in London. (Nirmal Fragrance p. 173)

Reading the Book of Revelations, Shri Mataji explained:

Verse 1: And there appeared a great wonder in Heaven, a woman clothed with the sun and the moon under her feet and upon her head a crown of twelve stars.

Shri Mataji, manifest as Adi Shakti, is then described in Verse 2 as:
And being with child, She cried, travailing in birth, and pained to be delivered.
This is the collective consciousness of Sahaja Yoga and the Sahaja Yogis. Mother has suffered much pain on our behalf.

The third verse describes the inevitability of evil – that must exist in order to be cast out.
Verse 3: And there appeared another wonder in Heaven; and behold a great red dragon, having seven heads and ten horns, and seven crowns upon his heads.
The dragon is the collective evil of the false gurus, and Mother counted on Her fingers and said, “Yes they are all here at the moment.”

Verse 4: And his tail drew a third part of the stars in Heaven, and did cast them upon the Earth: and the Dragon stood before the woman which was ready to be delivered, for to devour her child as soon as it was born.
[The hardships and sufferings that seekers encounter, that threaten their safety, lead them astray causing them to feel grief, sorrow, bitterness and in many cases, causing them to be destroyed and ruined, is the work of evil forces. Yet they must encounter evil and fight it – for otherwise they would not evolve and learn what it means to triumph over evil.]

Verse 5: And She brought forth a man-child who was to rule all nations with a rod of iron, and her child was caught up to God and to his throne.
[The man-child is Kalki, the collective awareness, ruling with the Kundalini, the instrument of that collective consciousness.]
