Anyone Know If the WIE Magazine Statement is Correct?

Rate this topic

5 posts in this topic

OM!

 

I just picked up the February-April 2004 WHAT IS ENLIGHTENMENT?

magazine. On page 15 it says: "Ammachi....is said to have recently

given 2005 as the year for a predicted global cataclysm, either

natural or man-made."

 

I wonder why they wouldn't or couldn't quote her exact words.

 

Anyone know anything about this? From my Medjugorje studies and

experiences I know we are supposed to focus on the here and now and

not be constantly thinking of the future. But authentic warnings are

said for a reason. I want to verify if Amma did say any such thing.

 

Thanks.

If you enjoy these articles please consider helping us to feed needy children in India through the Bhaktivedanta Ashram (FoodRelief.org):

It is correct (not 100% sure about the year), and IIRC this was presented

as an important part of the reason why people were urged to join Ammachi's

birthday celebrations last Fall. It was discussed in this list, you might

check the list archives for that period.

Yes, the info was distributed on a handout the last

day of the Rhode Island retreat last year. It did

seem to be a part of the reason people were urged

to come to the birthday celebrations in Sept. 03.

 

When Amma was asked about it in November in Detroit,

She didn't say much. My recollection is that

she told the questioner "that's why there are people

like you in the world--to pray and meditate, etc."

My guess at that time was that the "major catastrophe"

she was predicting for a year or two down the road was

George W. Bush's re-election in November 2004. (not

that he was ever elected in 2000!)

OM!

 

Thanks to everyone for your answers and comments to my question. It

sure does seem that something has to give sometime. I find it

literally miraculous that we haven't been turned into nuclear dust

decades ago. The more prayers and sacrifices, the better. And if it

weren't for Sadgurus such as Amma I don't think the Earth would still

be in one piece.
