For over two thousand years, we (mankind) have sought to improve our living
standards, our mental ability to overcome many barriers and aim for the
equivalent known as -- perfection. This particular image of perfection has
been glorified to that of the GODS and if we were to attain this level of
perfection, we would be the same or liken to that of the GODS. Many ideas,
developments and transformations have taken place to move toward this goal.
When looking back through the corridors of time our progress has been slow
but sure. We can see components that have been progressive and in line with
our goal to be perfect. It also highlights certain areas that reflect our
weakness. We consider ourselves to be the most intelligent of all Gods creation
upon Earth and this can be partly seen in our technological advancement.
Although we are now in the year 2000 AD and have advanced this far in time,
we are plagued by our human frailties and patterns of action that follow
us from generation to generation. Many illnesses we have today are illnesses
that were with our ancestors 3-4000 years ago. One would have thought that
we have come this far and yet we cannot rid the common cold or flu. Another
example of an illness that many great minds have sought to find answers to
and that is mental illness which has been handed down from generation to
generation. The interesting fact about mental illness is that it has not
increased in its intensity or severity. In other words the worlds total
population is not a patient of mental illness and that each of the disorders
have not changed or intensified. Another factor that destroys our brilliance
as being the most intelligent of Gods creation is our desire to destroy and
in particular create battles or wars between two people and two nations.
Two thousand years after the birth of Jesus Christ, the human race is still
warring against each other. Other illnesses and destructive actions have
also followed us into this millennium.
Our weakness as humans is greed. Our goal should be to improve our human
relationships hand in hand with technology. With the advancement of technology
and used in the right manner, the whole world should benefit. However we
use this advancement to gain personal satisfaction over one another or group
of people. I must refract on the prophets who foretold the future and spoke
the sacred words of the Supreme Being. Their predictions were not of our
ability to advance technically, but to predict human actions if the human
race was to go down a certain road or follow certain patterns of behaviour.
To date those predictions have come to fruition. The prophets were given
by the Supreme being to serve the people. They embodied the spiritual beliefs
and well being with daily living.
In the 1950s and early 1960s, the three known super-powers (China,
Russia and the USA) were the leaders of the world. This period would have
been the most ideal time to unite the world and establish World Peace however
the opposite effect happened and that the three super-powers pulled apart.
One could argue the reasons for their separation and that technology played
a major role in preventing those three leaders from joining forces. No matter
what reasons or excuses we make, in the end it come down to you and I (human
to human). At the same time during this period prophets throughout the world
were following the signs of the Spirit. Their goal was the call for Unity
Of All Beings.
NEW ZEALAND (AOTEAROA):
In New Zealand and in particular among the Maori, a prophet well known throughout
New Zealand (Mr Alexander Phillips) began his work by attending to those
who were less fortunate or to those that the medical profession could not
help. In 1953 he established a small clinic in a country town known as Te
Kuiti. He named his clinic the Surgery. Many thousands of people
from throughout New Zealand and other countries came for his assistance,
advice and fellowship. During his clinical appointments whether it be on
a one to one or a group of people, he would talk of the missing link being
the key to Heaven and Earth, and that the missing link is known as the MOTHER
who is the most compassionate, the most forgiving of all of Gods gifts in
Gods entire creation. In doing his work, Mr Phillips also set a precedent
which many Churches challenged and that is by placing the MOTHER between
the FATHER and SON, making change to the HOLLY TRINITY become four, THE FATHER,
MOTHER, SON AND HOLY SPIRIT. Mr Phillips spoke often of the Supreme Being
having four sacred pillars to hold his mantle of LOVE and PEACE. To achieve
World Peace, the MOTHER must be acknowledged being the fourth pillar of Gods
Mantle and that the four pillars must be placed in the four corners of the
world. World Peace cannot be achieved through three pillars.
MR ALEXANDER PHILLIPS Esq CBE, QSM
(PARAMOUNT CHIEF OF THE ROHE POTAE AND WANGANUI RIVER) (NZ)
Mr Phillips is 83 years of age, born as a twin 14th August 1917 on the banks
of the Ongarue River, Taumarunui New Zealand. Prior to him establishing his
surgery in Te Kuiti, he lived a normal life taking part in various sporting
activities, attending to his family farm and generally providing for their
daily needs. As his age increased so did his desire to take responsibility
to help the needy, the poor, homeless and serve the Spirit according to tradition
and customary values of the Maori. At the age of 26 years Mr Phillips had
to give away living like the average New Zealander and turn his attention
to working with the Wairua (Spirit), helping the less fortunate and working
with families that had illnesses pertaining to the world of Maori. This was
one particular area of health that the medical profession could not assist
in anyway or form. His genealogical background gave him the foundation to
begin his work with the Spirit and the people.
His first work was to attend to the Maori and their genealogical disorders
and sickness that could not be dealt with by any other person or medical
profession. During his counselling he would explain the background to his
work and what Maoridom will achieve for the future. Many significant elders
from throughout New Zealand came to see him for his service and skill. From
this service and through Mr Phillips, came various developments that led
Maoridom to becoming pro-active in their aspirations and the development
of Manu Ariki.
MANU ARIKI (THE BIRD OF PARADISE):
Manu Ariki is a Marae reserve of 150 acres and is the official footstool
for the MOTHER who takes the form of a magnificently carved native wood statue.
Other symbols that take the form of buildings also denote the significance
of Maori spirituality. The land upon which Manu Ariki stand was consecrated
by the ancestors of the Aotea canoe specifically as a footstool or a place
where the Supreme Being (GOD) can rest and call this small piece of land
his very own. Several large buildings are symbols of Maori prophecy and when
patterned together, form a unique system that consecrate the Spiritual practices
with todays material growth and expansion.
THE TEMPLE OF GOD (TE WHETU MARAMA):
On the morning of 14th May 2000 at 9.00am a dedication ceremony was conducted
by Mr Alexander Phillips Esq CBE, QSM, The Senior Council (The Apotoro (24)
and the Kaunihera Whakakotahi O Nga Hapu O Iharaira (The Council of Unity
for the Tribes of Israel). This dedication was the beginning to Unity
Of All Religion. The dedication involved the blessing of sacred pillars
known as the Pillars Of Love and the unveiling statues that various
religious communities had donated for the purpose of uniting religions and
beliefs throughout the world.
Magnificent statues of Jesus Christ, the Madonna, Buddha, the Black Madonna
of Madagascar, were unveiled. The sacred pillars of love give each
group/faith/religion a place to stand and be part of this development at
Manu Ariki. Prayers, blessings, Hymns and dedication speeches were part of
the ceremonial dedication.
People from various parts of New Zealand came early and gathered at the Temple
which is situated upon a hilltop over-looking Manu Ariki Marae and its village.
A light rain greeted the 250 people who came to take part in the dedication
ceremony. There were several groups among the 250 strong, whom presented
statues and icons for the purpose of acknowledging the concept and ceremony
of Unity Of All Religions.
Mr Phillips who is the Founder of Manu Ariki spoke at the ceremony explaining
the pillars that stand before the Temple of God (The Whetumarama)
are the Pillars Of Love. He expressed that although there were
only twenty pillars presently standing, it will increase as the different
beliefs/religions come forward to acknowledge the importance of uniting all
religions. He also re-iterated what he announced to the world in 1980 that
The Mother is one of four sacred pillars of God that hold up his mantle
of love and peace. By including the Mother in your prayers, she will give
strength, good life and enlightenment to the world. For God to place his
mantle of love and peace upon the world he will need four pillars in each
of the four corners of the world. Mr Phillips named the sacred pillars
The Father, The Mother, The Son and the Holy Spirit.
Mr Phillips also spoke of the Weeping Madonna of Sicily. In 1952 the world
saw this as a sign and a miracle, but no one could say what was the reason
for her tears. The tears were tested for its legitimacy - whether they were
real tears or just water. It was proved to be real tears. Mr Phillips advocated
that he was the only one who knew the reason for her tears. He explained
that in 1952 he had found the Missing Link between Heaven and
Earth and Gods fourth power, that being the Mother. By instituting the Mother
between the Father and the Son, this consecrated the Mothers rightful position.
This meant that the Mother had to leave Earth and return to the upper most
heaven to her rightful place with the Father, Son and Holy Spirit.
At the completion of the ceremony photographs were taken of the Pillars Of
Love and the statues. The people had the opportunity to look and pay their
respects to each of the statues present. The day concluded with everyone
having a luncheon in the main dining facility on Manu Ariki.
BUDDHIST MONKS OF KAUKAPAKAPA (NEW ZEALAND):
On the 11th May 2000 (Thursday), Mr Phillips sent two representatives to
meet with the Buddhist Lama Semtan of the Buddhist Monastery in Kaukapakapa.
The purpose of this visit was to:
1. Discuss the concept Unity of all Religions,
2. Invite them to take part in this development,
3. Extend an invitation to them to present a statue of Bhuddha to stand upon
the sacred pillars at Manu Ariki.
Our request was confirmed and in addition to our request was their wish to
have their Rinpoche (8 years old boy born in New Zealand), to present Bhuddha
to Manu Ariki. With this in hindsight, Manu Ariki saw the opportunity of
presenting their young leader (10yrs) to meet the Buddhist Rinpoche, two
young leaders from different cultures meeting for the first time. This meeting
would be seen as a bond between two people and two nations coming together
for the same purpose.
A date and time was scheduled for the two groups to come together. On the
18th May 2000, Manu Ariki formerly welcomed the Rinpoche (8 yrs), Lama Semtan,
Lama Shedrup and their administrator Kate. Mr Alexander Phillips Esq. CBE,
QSM, Master Daniel Tito (Grandson to Mr Phillips), Dr Jim Rawiri, The Council
for the Unity of the 12 Tribes of Israel, and affiliating members, received
the guests onto Manu Ariki. The formal process of welcome was accorded to
the guests. At the completion of the welcome the Rinpoche, Lama Semtan, and
Shedrup were taken to the Temple of God, known as the Whetumarama, to formerly
present the sacred statue - Bhuddha to its new home. Buddha was placed
upon one of the sacred stone pillars of love and Lama Semtan, lama Shedrup
and the Rinpoche conducted their ceremony of consecration to Buddha and the
Pillars of Love.
At the completion of this sacred dedication, Mr Phillips on behalf of Manu
Ariki, paid homage to Buddha, the Rinpoche Lama Semtan, and Shedrup for
fulfilling a prophecy and that their presence confirm the importance of the
Maori and the Tibetan people coming together. Mr Phillips expressed that
they and the Maori both share a common place in Tibet in the Himalayas Mountains.
To the Maori this most sacred mountain is known as Maunganui. This is the
largest and tallest mountain in the World known today as Mount Everest. Maori
history record that when the Maori migration entered Tibet, they travelled
to Maunganui to pay homage to this most sacred mountain which was the pathway
between heaven and earth, and that this mountain was the most godliest place
on earth. The Buddhist Monks were the caretakers of this sacred passageway
and that today they still maintain and practice their protocols and rituals
Mr Phillips expressed that it is an honour to have Buddha stand upon the
'Pillars of Love'. Mr Phillips in his honour to Buddha, invited Buddha along
with the other statues to combine their power and effort to bring unity to
all religions and to all peoples of the world.
Manu Ariki choir completed the ceremony with a hymn. Everybody adjourned
from the temple to take part in a celebration meal at the marae proper.
19th May 2000. The protocol of farewell was conducted as this was the day
for Lama Semtan, Lama Shedrup, the Rinpoche and the Administrator (Kate)
to depart from Manu Ariki. Mr Phillips and the Council of Elders concluded
the ceremonious occasion by giving a special blanket and a donation to assist
the Rinpoche with his journey to Tibet in September of this year. This blanket
is a representation and symbol to the blanket of Peace, to keep him well
and that when the Rinpoche reached Tibet, the blanket will personify a large
blanket cover flowing from Mount Everest, and moving across like a large
cover encompassing the world. Other gifts were also presented to the guests,
at the conclusion Lama Semtan and Lama Shedrup were taken to another sacred
building to view a miniature replica of Maunganui (Mt Everest), and be told
of a ceremony conducted by Mr Phillips to bring World Peace, starting upon
Mt Everest. This particular ceremony took place on the Easter Monday (NZ
time), to dedicate World Peace. Lama Semtan and Lama Shedrup dedicated their
ritual of invocation to the replica of Mount Everest and to the ceremony
of World Peace.
At the conclusion of their service, the public were invited to view the replica
of Mt Everest. Lama Semtan, Lama Shedrup , the Rinpoche and Kate departed
Manu Ariki for Kaukapakapa.
