St. Anne prayed for a worthy husband at the same time that St. Joachim prayed for a good wife. God disposed that they would unite in marriage and become the parents of her, who was to be the mother of the incarnate God. St. Gabriel was sent to St. Anne to inform her, saying: “The Most high give thee his blessing, servant of God, and be thy salvation. His Majesty has heard thy petitions and He wishes thee to persevere therein and that thou continue to clamor for the coming of the Redeemer. It is His will, that thou accept Joachim as thy spouse, for he is a man of upright heart and acceptable to the Lord. Walk in the straight paths of justice and let thy soul’s converse be in heaven. Continuing to pray for the Messiah, be thou joyful in the Lord, who is thy salvation.”

1979-05-07 Sahaja Yoga and Christianity – They Are All Seeking
Shri Mataji starts to talk, The first sentence is inaudible.
Music is a very good instrument for the spirit to manifest itself. Specially Veena is one of the Adi Contras as you call them, or you can say the musical instrument. It is a very important instrument for inciting the Kundalini on. As he is a realised soul it will definitely act on people whenever he plays. I am sure it is going to give him a great success, it may not be to many people it will appeal but it will definitely go to people who are seeking of a deep down in themselves, asking for the answers of many absolute questions.
Seeking is a fashion today in the West and also it is very genuine among men. What are we seeking in life, what do we expect to seek? One thing we know that we are not satisfied with whatever things we have, we are not satisfied with our material being, neither with our emotional being, neither with our mental being. Always the joy is followed by unhappiness, that means that there is something imperfect within us, something lacking very much. If that was not so we would have been happy like the birds like the flowers, like the animals. This lacking is felt only in this form which we call as the Human Being, only in the Human Being one feels that there is something that is missing in life because in the evolutionary path as you know human beings are the highest and they have reached a stage where they are aware of this lacking, this imperfection within ourselves.
This is I think also is the blessing of the modern times that we are aware of it much more today than we were ever, some are really aware of it, they are genuinely aware of it, and they are really seeking something. Others take to fashion, they may not be that deep, they may not be that massive, but if I have to tell you that there is a life which is not known to us which is beyond us, it is not easy for a thinking man to believe in it because we see only our body, we can see the working of our minds but we cannot see other things, we cannot feel them through our senses, and it is very difficult for a modern person to believe into something that is beyond. But this is not only one dimension, that we have another life, another force, another source but I would say there are at least 4 dimensions in which we live unknown to those realms which are around us, sometimes we get a glimpse of that sometimes, but we are not stationed there, neither we are there to understand. Here are we have shown in the diagram a Human Being I hope you all can see, can you, you all can come this way, there is no need to be in that way, could all be this thing is better, but cos with new people it’s something special there (special to them?), here, that’s better, now can you all see from there, can you all sit down, can you see from there? Oh you can come round. Here is the human being, as you are a human being.
Now whatever I have to tell you about this you need not believe me at all. There is no blind faith needed on the contrary blind faith goes against reality, but keep yourself open and see for yourself if it works. You need not have any preconceived ideas about it also, because you will be able to see later on that whatever I say can happen to you all. Now this is a Human Being as I have shown here, and he has got the left, right, and the lower and the top of his head, 4 sides. The left side of the human being contains all the subconscious, all that is dead in him in all his lives, and through his left side he is connected to the collective consciousness, collective subconsciousness that is all that is dead. All that has happened all that is ( nawa? ) On the right hand side there is another area which is called as the supra conscious. Left hand side is all the past, right hand side is all the future about which we conceive of, about which we think of by our mental activity we can conceive of all the future we can achieve, for example the idea of going to the moon existed in this part. We have achieved it by movement towards the right and also all that is dead in the name of future like a person who always plans about the future is also on the right hand side in the collective supra conscious. The right hand area is the supraconscious and beyond that is the collective supra conscious. This area is also unknown to us. Left hand side area is also unknown
to us. But whatever is unknown need not be divine and it need not be a conveyance for your realisation. As you see down below is the area where what we call the hell exists. It exists around us but on top of the head there exists an area of supra consciousness that is the area of Divine Power. You have heard in the books that there is all pervading Divine Power, the Holy Ghost, the Adi Shakti which encompasses the whole universe, the whole creation even the small atoms and molecules, it is pulsating because of this all pervading power of Divine Power. In all the scriptures it has been described but how are we to believe it. Is there really such a power existing? Is there something beyond or it is only the material life that we live into, that we are every day worried about what to get for food what to wear, how to go about social life, political life, economic life or is there any other power which is really manifesting, acting, controlling, co-ordinating and also all the time loving you. If there is so has anybody felt it has anybody known it. This is the power you are really seeking, not the power of the left hand or the right hand nor the power of hell which is a bottomless pit. You are seeking the power that is all pervading is the power of Gods love. Love is the most powerful thing, but which love is the dynamic love of God. Is there God even, one can ask a question like that, is there God, are we to believe that there is God. How are we to believe that there is God, people have believed into God without knowing him, without feeling him, without any experience. Why they have been doing it cause there has been a sustaining force. Some sort of sustaining force as been working on them, which has kept them alive. The fact that there is some power who we can call as Divine Power. But nobody has so far been able to give an en masse understanding or feeling of it. Very few who talked about it, who felt it, were never accepted by common people, they were rejected, stoned , crucified, killed, poisoned. It is said that the whole world, the whole universe that you see is just a reflection on the mirror of that all pervading power, when you see the reflection you cannot see the mirror, you have to become the mirror but how? then we come to one question, why did Human Being become a Human Being from amoeba stage and why did he become that? What is the purpose of making him a Human Being of this shape? We should wonder about it, why with two limbs like that, two legs like that in an erect position. It is a fundamental question which any scientist should look into. What is the reason for creating in all these thousands of years a Human Being? It is not just to run a puppet show of politics or economics it has no meaning it is just a game going on, you can see it clearly it’s a game. Is it only to play these games we were made into Human Beings, if so why are we not happy about it, why are we not satisfied, why do we not feel our fulfilment. The reason is our fulfilment is not this, is something very different, unless and until we have that fulfilment we are not going to feel satisfied with ourselves, and that fulfilment is to feel that supraconsciousness which is all pervading. So we can also conclude that if we have to become that, if we have to become that all pervading power or if we have to be connected to that all pervading power what are we going to gain out of it.
First of all you do not know any truths, people say you do not know if there is God, it is all relative. If there is God there is 37 truths, 38 truths, there are 65 truths, is there any absolute truth? A simple question like God, is there God, is a fundamental question. If you ask this question to a computer you might get any number of answers as many number of computers there are. Those people who are feeding the computers will give you a different answer, but if there is something else by which we can know the absolute. We have become a Human Being without doing anything about it. We were just amoeba anyway and we have become a Human Being, we have done nothing about it. What are we going to do to become that by which you are going to know this supra consciousness within you. You cannot do anything about it. It is a spontaneous process it is a living process within you which works spontaneously and that’s why we call it Sahaja Sah means with ja means born, it is born with you, what is born with you is the light to unite with that power. It is born with you, so we call it as Sahaja Yoga, it is the Maha Yoga they call it because this is what one has to achieve. All the rest of the nonsensical things are useless. Supposing you start flying on a flying saucer what’s the use? Supposing somebody gives you 100 diamonds, what’s the use? Supposing you get into a trance and start talking big what’s the use? Supposing by saying some mantras you become a speedy person and you start doing too much of work and cannot rest like a mad possessed person, what’s the use?
So what do you have to become is yourself, which you are not yet yourself. Because you do not know what is within you you cannot feel yourself, because you cannot feel yourself we can say that
there is no awareness about yourself. At the most you can see some pain here or a pain there because you cannot feel yourself you cannot feel others. Now what is the mechanism that God has built within us? How are we built, we have to find out. In our being God resides as a reflection in our heart as spirit as Atma. How are we to know there is Atma is a simple thing like I would say I am not this church, I am not this life, because I can see I am not this lamp, because I can see I am not this mind, because I know how it works, I am not this body because I can see there is something else that is seeing it, you go on negating one by one you reach a place where there is one I which knows what is that I, you have to reach that point. From the point of science we have to know there are many things absolutely undiscovered so far. If there are doctors here they will know we have a system called as autonomous nervous system, yes, it works on itself, what is this auto in Sanskrit, we can call it (Swayam???) what is this Swayam what is this self driven self motivated system you have just given it a name, you have not explained anything by saying it is autonomous but who is this auto, who is this Atma, who does this work? If you can understand that there is something which knows everything about us and around us that is the one, is the spirit. You say that all the time “I know” now which part of you knows? But how to know the self? Is there any mechanism within us That God has placed to know the self by which we know this all pervading power of supra conscious, there is a beautiful mechanism within us placed and that mechanism is called in the Sanskrit language as Kundalini because in India people have meditated, they were not so much challenged by the nature as they are challenged in other countries. It is a very warm country people can live with minimum. It was not necessary for them to indulge so much in the protection of their body securing food or ordinary life, they could live so their attention was turned towards the questions that I just answered, that why are we here as Human Beings and when they started searching it in their meditation they discovered the great truth about this great instrument called as Kundalini. Of course in the bible also there is a mention of Kundalini, because it is said that I will appear before you like tongues of flames. Tongues of flames, how do we explain tongues of flames. Where are the tongues of flames within us, have you seen any tongues of flames within us, have you seen them outside somewhere, that God is going to appear before us as tongues of flames? That is a description of the Kundalini of the chakras of the centres which lies within us in this way as it is shown over there. You may say you are not seeing it. Alright, for that you have to have a different personality, a higher personality where you become that all pervading power when you get in contact with that Divine Power. Then only you start feeling those centres within you on your fingers you can feel them very clearly, you can feel all these centres that are within you and also the centres in other people. Now there are at least 50% people who have felt it among you. Minimum of 50% people who know about it and at least there are 25% who have mastered this. So why not the rest of them all of them should get it. But for that keep a little open mind and I will explain to you what is the Kundalini within us. I am talking of the subtler things, much subtler than we think of. Can you say from where does our idea of innocence come. Do we ever realise that there is definitely this idea prevalent, we accept the word innocence. It is a very subtle thing innocence is from where does it come to us, innocence where does it lie within us? Can any psychologist tell me from where does the innocence come and how it is destroyed and how you can regain it back? All these centres here these 7 centres that lie within us represent such subtle things like innocence. The first centre which lies below the Kundalini, the Kundalini which is the main force, residual force which brings forth this experience of Self Realisation, the one that connects you with the mains like you can say this is connected with the mains. Unless and until it is connected What do we talk of God, what do we talk of the all pervading power, it all has no meaning. It is just a joke going on if it is not connected if I speak on this will you hear me? In the same way when you are not connected with God through your self realisation all talk of God could be alright or could be horrid. You may be worshipping a devil in the name of God. How will you know that a person is Divine? This Kundalini which is above the first centre which is in three and a half coils is an energy that rests in the triangular bone in every Human Being in a dormant stage just waiting for that moment when somebody who is authorised can raise it and give you that power. This is, I am talking about your own power, and not my power, it is your own power which must manifest. If you go to a Guru if he just polishes off your money, what do you understand of it, he is just befooling you. If he cannot give you your own power then his is not a Guru. It is your own power which must manifest and you should feel this all pervading power, your must experience it, you must experiment it and should be able to
manoeuvre it. Then only one can say you are self realised not only that but you should be able to feel your own chakras and you should be able to feel the chakras of others, and you should be able to give realisation to others. All this can be done once you are self realised without that nothing can work out. My talk is a talk it has no meaning unless and until it has worked out the miracle of Kundalini awakening. Now, a lot has been said against the Kundalini awakening part. People are frightened, there are books and books which fills people with awe to read about Kundalini, saying what, whatever it is it is a dangerous path of kundalini it is going to torture us and all that. I can assure you that in India, abroad, and everywhere thousands of people must have come to Sahaja Yoga, not a single person has suffered, on the contrary at least out of them 70% people have achieved Self Realisation. Because she is your Mother. She is your Divine Mother. If your Mother has so much of compassion for you, love for you she is the source of all that love and she is not going to trouble you on the contrary she is so kind. She is just waiting for the moment for it to happen she is not going to trouble you and torture you. Then how is it these people have felt such horrible experiences you may ask me, They are not authorised people, they do not know how to they have no authority to awaken the Kundalini. Supposing you do not know how to handle a mechanism electrical mechanism when you put your hand into it you will burn your hand, does that means electricity gives you burning. If you are not a person who is entitled to do a thing such a person has to be definitely a holy person. If he is not a Holy person he has no business to raise the Kundalini. A person who leads a very sinful life has nothing to do with Kundalini. One must know that a cynic can never take you to God. But a person who is Holy and the one who is realised can definitely raise your Kundalini and the Kundalini only will rise because of him and not because of any ordering or any manoeuvring or any doing about it.
All these things are absolutely useless because Kundalini is the consciousness which understands, which thinks, which loves and it obeys only the one who has the power to love as much as she does. All these big big books I have read I was amazed how these people without any knowledge about Kundalini without any understanding about it have written these big books just to make some money. Have they not to answer to God for what they have done? So have no fear about Kundalini she is your Mother, the kindest of all, full of love, and she forgives you all that you have done, she is the storehouse of all the compassion that you could think of and she is not going to burn you or trouble you or give you any trouble. But if you have a problem she will attend to it. For example if someone is suffering from liver trouble you can see with your naked eye the Kundalini pulsating coming to the liver and supplying it. Here there are, as I have told you 50% people who have seen the pulsation of the kundalini at the triangular bone, and there are thousands who have seen it with naked eye, you can see it pulsating in the triangular bone. Some of these people who have written such big books on the kundalini have said that the kundalini resides in the stomach, I mean something so absurd they have written, something so wrong so false and that is why you don’t be afraid of this word kundalini. This kundalini is the one kept in a sleeping condition they say for this last culmination of your evolution as a human being to become connected with that subtle force and this kundalini when it rises and passes through the various chakras it enlightens them one by one. All these chakras are placed within us during the different evolutionary periods. The first one which is the Ganesha Chakra as they call it, is the mooladhara chakra is the centre of mooladhara. But is not the mooladhara or the Kumbha as they call it, is mooladhara chakra is the one that sustains the mooladhara. Now what is the word meaning mooladhara, means the support of the root. What is the support of the root? The support of the root is the ground is the earth is the matter and that’s why this represents the matter within us. Matter is innocent, matter has got innocence and you get your innocence from this chakra. She Ganesha was made out of the, they say, it is a beautiful poetic way of saying it, out of the mud that was covering the Mother Parvati or you can say the Gauri at that time. Because she was not married in the sense that she was a virgin just finished her marriage and she was to meet her husband and this virgin wanted to have a bath before meeting her husband, so she cleanses her hands properly and makes this deity of Shri Ganesha which is bestowed on this centre. If you really develop your proper insight through meditation you can see Shri Ganesha settled down there very clearly.
Shri Ganesha is the embodiment of innocence and that’s why he is a child, that’s why his head is that of an elephant, because an elephant being an animal doesn’t grow into ego and superego like
human beings do. Thats why he is a child. He is the embodiment of childhood and he incarnated on this earth once which is described in Devi Bhagwhat if you read as Mahavishnu. He has incarnated as Mahavishnu and this was nobody else but Lord Jesus Christ. Even he was born in a way the same way as Ganesha was born without the father, to a virgin. If I am saying something untrue you can find out later by verifying it through a method which I will explain to you a little later, this is a very very important centre for all of us, because unless and until the deity settled on this chakra permits the kundalini will not rise. If your innocence is in danger the kundalini will never rise and even if it rises for a little while out of its excitement it will again be sucked back. Though this chakra is placed below the kundalini which is a very important point? Which people do not know, it is below the kundalini and not above the kundalini so it is not necessary to pierce this kundalini pierce this chakra through the kundalini it is not necessary. What is necessary is to know the importance of this centre and allow the kundalini to rise and it passes through other 6 chakras and that is why is is known as ? And that means there are 6 chakras which it crosses. Now the lower chakra which is the first one Mooladhara chakra I will describe it in more details because we nt have too much time because you must be anxiously waiting for the experience. It is very important and is controlling or manifesting the pelvic plexus outside. Now we scientists know about the pelvic plexus being placed there. This pelvic plexus also has got 4 sub plexuses in the same way this centre has also got 4 petals. Now you know what is a pelvic plexus is and what it does. It looks after the sex, the excretion of the urine and stool. At this place Ganesha was placed because he is like a lotus in the mud and that is why it is important that we must understand about our sex life, and we must know that we have to be correct in our ideas about sex life. Those people who say that we can excite kundalini through sex are immoral people. They are sinful people they are teaching you how to commit sin. This is your Mother so why is she sitting down there and if you want to put your sex onto your Mother, what do you call it? I was shocked, I am so shocked that there is a regular organisation going on in this London which is teaching you how to commit sin, and there are 1000s and 1000s of people following that sort of an organisation. I think it is a very wrong thing and absolutely condemnable blasphemy apart from that it is punishable, and if they have any fear of the divine laws they should give up all these ideas and take to a proper life. It doesn’t mean any kind of fanaticism, it means that you should lead a good married life. It doesn’t mean that you should take to sanyasa, sanyasa is against Sahaja, it is absolutely against Sahaja. If someone is a sanyasi know that there is some sort of a danger in this man. Sanyasa is another show, what is there to show that you are a sanyasa, if you have sanyasa within you, you are there you are a sanyasi. Why to put a cloth or a dress to show that you are a sanyasi? All these extreme behaviours of life are not needed. To achieve that state you have to stabilise yourself still, stabilise, do not go to extremes. There is no need to go to extremes. It is in the central path you have to be not to go to one extreme or to another extreme. Actually when you go too much to one extreme you will definitely go to the other extreme. It happens like that like a pendulum you move from one to another, for example you know in this country people were very materialistic, they thought that matter was very important they were building up doing this doing that. Now when it is over you young people have discovered that “Oh God what is all this, this is not joy giving” so you also have moved to another extreme. No it is not that way, it is in the centre you have to be in the centre, in a complete balancing way in a stabilising way to achieve your self realisation. It is in the central path that the kundalini rises not on the left or the right, that is the path of the Sushummna Nadi, and this is the bridge which is made when you are facing a person who knows who is authorised to give you realisation. This bridge is created within you through what through what I call as Chaitanya Lahari, is the cool vibrations which are described even in the bible, the cool vibrations of the Holy Spirit. So where do these vibrations come in? Are they within you? They are not yet felt in your central nervous system you cannot feel them, the spirit emits them. When you are enlightened the spirit starts emitting those vibrations, and by that you can feel it within yourself. The different centres that are within you you can feel them. Which is (mistaken??) we have shown here the different chakras that are represented on the hands where you feel it. For example, here you see the second chakra is the Swadishthan chakra when do you feel on the left hand Swadishthan chakra? You feel on the left Swadishthan chakra when a person is unauthorised is using unauthorised ways of handling the sites like psychologists, all the psychologists catch on this centre. When do you catch it again is when a person is over hard working that is called as (Akita??). In the book of Gita (Akita ?) the one who works very hard for
material things and for physical being and doing all kinds of yoga at the same time just to have a nice body or to have a nice house or to have a nice aura of material well being such a person always catches on the left Swadishthan. What is the disease you get out of it? Diabetes is the first that shows you are so imbalanced that the balance has to be created and you get the catch on the left hand side, means you get the diabetes. You can get the kidney trouble you can also get some trouble with your spleen. On the left hand side the other catch would be the left Swadishthan could also give you a kind of a very dry personality. You could be a very dry personality extremely dry, it dries out your warmth, your sweetness, that’s why you find in this world people you see so called intellectuals the way they talk sometimes you feel you are talking to a machine. There is no feeling in that person, you just talk to that person, you feel what is the matter with this person, what has happened to him. Why is he so abnormal. In the same way you can see all these centres shown here one by one these are, can be felt on your fingers once you are realised and you can correct them. You can find out about the truth. For example if you want to find out is there God, you put your hands like this and ask this question in your heart and you will get the cool breeze. As it says here for the first time you enter into the temple of truth. That You can ask a question, you can get an absolute answer. Any one of you who are realised all of them will get the same answer if it’s a small child he will say the same thing. If they are old people they will say the same thing. But I have seen that people who come to Sahaja yoga are very slow to move because we want to separate, we want some sort of (chamukya) we want to see something that is something so fantastic we want sensation but we have to get something permanent. Something of very permanent nature which is for our being, which has to happen, our evolution has to go forward and this is a step human beings have to cross into, they jolly well have to cross it they have to have it those who will not do will have to take to another force and that force is very dangerous. So it is better that you take to the course of evolution and know your own power and enjoy yourself because not only will you know the truth, the absolute truth, but you will know what we call the all pervading power from here you can tell about others what is wrong with them, because you jump into collective consciousness. You start feeling other people. You can be sitting down there and you can see what wrong with this person, what’s wrong with that person. You can even correct that person even only thinking about them you can help. Of course when you get this enlightenment physically you are alright mentally you are alright emotionally you are alright. Now there are many people in Sahaja yoga who have been cured of cancer in London itself a very famous person who has been cured of cancer, cancer can only be cured through Sahaja yoga. I have told this thousands of times. But when they get cancer only they will come to me not before, till they get the cancer they will wait, they will not take it up seriously until they get cancer or some sort of a trouble, if they come to me they will only come when they are sick and about to die. Instead of that if you take to Sahaja yoga seriously you will never get cancer not only that you can cure other people because you are working on the parasympathetic which is the balancing thing, how it is cured how it works out, everything can be learnt without paying a single Pi to me or to anyone who knows about it. It is a very simple thing how these physical ailments can be cleared. By clearing all these centres because these are centres which are underlying forces which control all our other organs which we call the autonomous system, once you can control these centres you can control all of them and you can have a very beautiful health, no problems with your health. But this is just a kind of attraction that it is a chocolate on top of the inside because I have seen mostly people come to Sahaja yoga when they are absolutely sick. But are you seeking only that? Then you will get cured, again you will have come back again then again you’ll get cured and have another attack?. The other day I cured somebody of heart attack absolutely angina was cleared out and everything was clear. But then again after 5 or 6 months he comes to me, Oh Mother I am getting a stomach pain oh I have stomach trouble, I said what did you do about it, he said nothing, I was very happy I went home and I was thankful to you. Now if this life is cleansed it has to be enlightened. Now if it has to be enlightened then it has to give light to others or it has to just rust out ? if anybody works on your chakras, cures you, fills you up with all that is promised you have to give light to others. You have to know about it you have to cleanse yourself you have to understand yourself, and not to just get lost and then again arise after 8 months and say Oh Mother this was the problem and I had I had a terrible time and I don’t know I have come back again. It is very common with many people who come to me they say oh Mother that once they are realised we should be alright already well, we should be just like great people. Really? you see
we have a marketing attitude towards things. That we have come to Mataji we have obliged her now she has given us realisation and we have obliged her now it is her duty to see that we are fully here at that level of realisation. Now this is not the way because you must have understood we are talking about the Divine Power about God. There is a certain protocol about it. What have you given to him for all this, and that is what fails in people that they do not know how to sustain Sahaja yoga and how to keep to it which is a very simple thing, not much has to be done but you must sustain it. Do not take it for granted and that’s how I find many people come, they get realisation, enjoy themselves, for about 5/6 weeks or 5/6 months, or maybe 5/6 hours back again the same. Because there are two forces that work on you is as shown here on the left and the right the ego and the superego at the very beginning the ego and the superego are sucked in but again they come up, especially the ego in this great ego oriented society and the superego comes back, and you see your ego and superego coming on you and then you start mingling with it and you get to it. Even this portion which opens out which is called as Sahasrara the top bone, when it opens out even that gets covered and calcified. So Sahaja yoga is not a trick like that it is not a sensation by any chance. It is a happening within. The second thing that happens to you that when you start giving this Divine Power to others you start gradually deepening into your own being and feeling your source of joy. Life becomes full of joy and happiness, that joy and happiness must be your own, has to be there but it is lost and it has to be found out and once found it has to be sustained has to be kept aloft. Like you get into the boat you are still just feeling dizzy, you are still falling out. Now somebody asked me when do we feel we are steady, when you are steady you are steady. It is that simple some people of course once they got realisation some have even got it on my photograph amongst them just got their realisation from the photograph they are still realised. But some of them I have worked for hours together, months together, and years together, and still they go back to the same level. I am here to work for you because I am your Mother. I am going to work very hard, no doubt I have worked very hard, and I have hoped very hard everyone knows that, what about you. You have to also love yourself and you have to also understand that this should happen to you it should be your experience and that you should sustain within yourself and then you will know your fulfilment that now you have become one with that all pervading power and that is the time when now you can really give it to others. And you will be amazed what wonders you can do. There are some people here who have done wonders then you will know you well know how powerful you are and so far you have not been at all introduced to yourself as in Sanskrit says (??’a la Vidya’ ) know knowledge of yourself how powerful you are. For that you need not be a Prime Minister or you need not be a great personality on the contrary many people who are simple who are normal who are in the centre, ordinary people who we call it are the best for Sahaja yoga. Those extraordinary people take time because they have lots of complications around them and they are very difficult but for simple people Sahaja yoga works wonders. In London you know we have lots of people here who have got it and around London and outside in England we have lots of people who have got realisation but today is a special day which we are celebrating which was 5th May 1970 that was the day when this last Sahasrara was opened out. That was the day I saw the opening it was definitely tongues of flames with round flames with all colours opening out like living flames very silent and moving and extremely compassionate and you could feel the compassion opening out fully, and I saw the lotus opening like that with many colours and in the centre was the agnya chakra I could see that had brought it up the kundalini upward and that was a sign that now en masse realisation could be started because it has to be en masse. Many people have to get realisation otherwise nobody is going to believe that there is God or that there is All Pervading Power or there is any spirit. Already people have challenged God without knowing what foolish things they are doing. Then you will realise what is this All Pervading Power and how it works and then the whole thing looks like a drama. It is all ( mithra??). It is all falsehood you see, start seeing it. Once you start seeing it then the whole thing becomes a joke and you see the game, you see yourself as a witness of the whole game and you are not involved into it. I think we should now go in for realisation because telling you about kundalini is not so easy. It is a tremendous thing and cannot be explained in one lecture and I have already got say 84 lectures they have got for which they are going to bring out and still I have not been able to cover the whole thing. But we have now been able to compile something, a book called “The Advent” by Gregoire de Kalbermatten who is here now, and we have been able to publish that book in Delhi. And for which we have really at least I should say how many thousands people, I
didn’t count, but thousands of people and lots of them got realisation, and this book has been really very much comprehensive, you can get that book and read it but still experiencing is different understanding is different. That book covers a very little part of the whole thing, but still it gives you a good introduction to the subject which can open your eyes to reality. I hope they have some pamphlets here also to give you the first understanding of the thing. It is a serious thing it is not a joke it is not just putting something into your head and finishing off it is a very serious thing and has to be taken up seriously, so it is very serious it is fully enjoyable. I cannot remain serious for more than 10 minutes because it is all a joke for me so once you become that it is very very simple and a very very normal thing. But before that you have to take it up with understanding and with respect and regard towards yourself. If you are really seeking you will do it. We have had people very difficult cases who have achieved it and who have done it. So I do not think that it will be difficult for you to get this realisation,and to achieve it, to sustain it, to learn about it and to give it to others. May God bless you all.
If you have any questions you can ask me for about 5 or 6 minutes but ask sensible questions just wasting your time and my time is not a good thing, just ask me very sensible questions because as I said it it has to happen to you. It is your own power You have to get it, you don’t have to pay for anything, I don’t need anything from you, nothing you can give me, so if you have to take change your attitude if you are taking from me. I am not asking for votes I am giving them not asking for anything. You might not have met a person like me before but think it over that you have to take from me and it is a gift to you so before taking the gift don’t open the mouth of the horse, try to understand what it is and then ask me sensible questions because just wasting your time is not good. I will be very happy to answer your questions if they are sensible and good enough and if they are helping you because there must be some questions which must be asked.
Inaudible question is asked…..
That is a good question a very good question. You see a very good question, that is a very good question, that is Sahaja Yoga is a religion? Now what is a religion according to you, first of all the question comes back to you, what is a religion when you said if it is a religion then I would like to know what a definition of a religion is from your side. So I will tell you what is a religion and what is Sahaja Yoga? The idea of all religion is, I mean what we call as religion is that you find certain truths about things. Like there was Christ alright, he lived on this earth, he did this he did that, so some people take it up, they are not realised souls, they have not sensed the divinity, they have not known what is Divine Light. They take up the authority upon themselves, they organise it. Say like this is the religion of Christianity, and the same about Hinduism, some pundits get together, they have some dry discussions among themselves and they are not realised they never read also books say Shankaracharya and they start a religion. You cannot start a religion, the religion is within you is the religion of evolution. The religion is in your stomach do you know that? It is in your stomach existing now here if you see the yellow thing, the green thing around the green is the void as we call it, or you can call it bhavasagara in the Sanskrit language as they call it. This portion is sustained by religion, every Human being has a sustainer, for example gold has a sustaining power, alright because it is untarnishable, we can say that it has a sustaining power of gold. Correct? In the same way every human being has got a sustaining power as a human being. If he does not have this then he falls in his dharma in his religion. Whatever is false, falsely made is not a religion. That is why people are turning away from religion. Religion exists in your stomach but you can deny it, you can defy it. You can say that I don’t believe it. You can have cancer of the stomach because of that you may have some disease because of that. Fanaticism is not religion. Fanaticism is a disease. I am not talking of disease I am talking of something that is within you. So if you think evolution is a religion then I would say that Sahaja Yoga is a religion. If your evolution if you call it is a religion then Sahaja yoga is a religion but is a religion which takes you beyond your sustainance beyond your religion your dharmatit, beyond your dharma. We have amongst ourselves Hindus, Muslims, Christians all that, you know that. All these people can feel it within themselves as a religion in their stomachs, they can feel it. They can find out where is a religion because I say the religion in the stomach is looked after by the deities of Primordial Master who we call as Dattatreya in the Sanskrit language. I don’t mean in Hinduism. It doesn’t mean
Hinduism at all but it is called as Dattatreya in the Sanskrit language, in English it’s Primordial Master. He is the same who incarnated on this earth as Moses as Abraham, has incarnated as Muhammed Sahib as Raja Janaka, as Nanaka, and also as Shirdi Sai Nath. Can you believe that Muhammed Sahib is the same as our Nanak. Now in the religion of these people the Muslims so called and the so called Sikhs are fighting amongst themselves, can you believe that Mahavira and Buddha were the same as Hassan and Hussain which we can prove it to you on vibrations and on curing people they were the same people reincarnated just to improve on themselves because people believe into something which they were not so they were incarnated just to show this was wrong, no no I never said it this is the truth. In the story of Nanaka it was said that once he was sleeping so they said. “You are preaching that there should be unity between Hindus and Muslims and you are putting your feet towards Mecca,” he said really? Then he turned to the other side, he said Mecca has moved. He was the religion but not his followers. They drink, he allowed them to drink did he? When Muhammed Sahib said don’t drink that means they make a fanaticism out of all that. Fanaticism is not religion you must understand the difference between the two, the living religion is within us when you get that light inside. You cannot drink. I never drink. I never tell people don’t drink before realisation. After that you just don’t drink you just give up, because you start feeling yourself the beauty within yourself. When you are bored only you will smoke and drink. When you are enjoying yourself why would you drink. So your religion automatically awakens and you just don’t have to bother. Nobody has to tell you that you will get cancer don’t smoke. 99% just give up smoking without any difficulty and that’s how they save money. People have given up drugs. Horrible things they have given up You won’t believe If I tell you that there some of them sitting here came to me in dead condition, absolutely in dead condition, they gave it up when they found it. So this is a religion that is within you which is enlightened through kundalini and then it works out. But it is an absolute religion in the sense that you all feel the same thing. If you feel one finger the other is also going to feel the same thing. There is no argument about it, there is no argument, everyone will say I am feeling this Mother so that person is suffering from this trouble or this trouble whatever it is. Even if you take 10 children if they are realised souls if you dry their eyes they will say the same thing and they will all clear out there everyone of them, whether they are Muslims, Hindus, Christians doesn’t matter. The other day I had an Arab lady I have cured came to me who is realised she brought another Egyptian to me, he had pain on the left side centre because the left side is affected but then after the left side was cured you see they all started feeling pain here and pain here, so I said do you get pain here and he said how do you know that’s the reason I am here to you, I said do you get pain here he said yes throughout, we cured him also. A little bit you get pain, just not much just feeling just you start suggesting the pain is here and here and here and with your hands you can move it and you can take it out. Many mad people have been cured by coming to Sahaja Yoga because when the enlightenment comes when the balance comes in when there is light within you the darkness goes away. The darkness of the subconscious and not the supra conscious disappears and you become an enlightened person. If enlightenment is a religion then I would say Sahaja Yoga is, there is nothing discarded of all the religions, nothing is discarded but it is enlightened and brought forth and told to you that this is. What was Buddha, do you know who was Buddha how he was brought, do you know who was Mahavira, now those people who worship Mahavira if they are fanatics they are really if you go to see them really you will go mad with them you will not understand what’s the matter, what sort of an interpretation is this of Mahavira, or of Buddha or of Rama or of Krishna or of Christ and when you start feeling these fanatic people in the name of religion oh God any religion get out of it. It is correct I must say you young people have seen to it, but still don’t go away from God. You see always you have seen in this world everything that is beautiful is covered with something ugly because it is a market, you want to sell something in the market, religion you cannot sell in the market. They are selling religion. If you read any one of these people there see £50,000,000 for this £30,000,000 for this for raising this organisation for doing this. Is such a headache when I see these things the other day I was seeing that picture on the TV of the world that they were organising so much money and that money, is that God is that religion so differentiate between the real religion and the unreal one. Fanaticism is not the way to God, it is never the way. It is one side of God but you can go to the other side of denying of God, denying of religion is another side, both are extreme, you have to be in the centre. Again I say that you have
to be in the centre. You just wait and see and let it happen to you, alright? It was a very good question. Beautiful.
Are there any other questions?
Unheard question is asked
The extreme of sanyasi? Alright perfectly alright. You see one should not think that becoming that is very important. It’s alright if you don’t want to do it it’s alright, like vegetarianism also is another fad you see there are Jains in India who are vegetarians to this limit that they want to be kind to the bugs so they get the bugs of all the village they collect it and keep one pundit and put him in the hut and put all the bugs to eat that ear or drink the blood of that pundit, or what we call as a priest and that is how they think they are being very kind to bugs. But what are we going to do with the bugs here you tell me. You see one pundit is better than thousands of these bugs, how if the bugs come here how am I to give them realisation? This is what it is you see if by temperament you do not like sex life it is perfectly alright but by becoming a nun if you will find God is a wrong idea this is what I am trying to say. If by temperament you don’t like to eat flesh and things it is perfectly alright, but if you think that by becoming vegetarian you are going to achieve God is wrong, not the extreme of anything. Not extreme of anything. Any kind of fanaticism you see this is the reason why today Gods name is erased because of fanatic ideas, we have to understand that if we have to allow God to work within us we have to be sensible. We have to be wise. Now see this temple is sold out to ??? what would you say to that? Why? why has church been allowed to ????? I don’t say there is anything wrong with Bharatiya Bhavan but a church has been sold to Bharatiya Vidya Bhavan a sign of what. People are neglecting religion, for what, alright? So we have to be sensible and wise about it because we can see the future now. we can see for ourselves what is going to happen to these younger people who are thinking about it. They should also not be allowed to go to another extreme. 26% people in this country believe in God can you imagine what do they think of themselves? 26% people only believe in God. Out of them 6% must be others not British and what do the British think about themselves that they don’t have faith in God, whom do they have faith in I cannot understand. So it has gone to that limit, now at least away from only the poor countries where there is no food nothing, so you supply food to them. Now supplying food is not Gods work at all, looking after the poor is not Gods work who has told you that it is Gods work?
Even Christ has said that poor will be with you always but I am with you for a short time. If you look after the divinity and our Divine life and not all these poor people let other people do it, let the government do it. Why are you doing the governments job to be philanthropic? That’s not your job looking after the poor, you will see they are like labours unions there supplying the poor food, supplying what is the need? Thats not the way. Understand that when you have to do for anyone it is just you do it. You just don’t think you are doing anything great you just do it because its just you feel happy about it. You are just doing it for your own happiness there is nothing like ???and all that. You just do it there is nothing so great to feel proud of it that you have done so much good work and so much good work. It’s all nonsense this is just ego pampering. What can you do for others, what can you give? Dead things like I give a television set to someone or a chair to someone, all dead, is it going to give joy to anyone? That is not joy giving all these great religions which were formed and all these organisations should have given some joy to people, they have not they have failed completely because their attention was never in the seeking in the finding out of the truth, they were just organising it. Do you understand my point? There are many ways in which we can follow after getting realisation there are. ??? There many ways in which you can watch those thoughts. If you watch you see because you are a realised soul yourself, you know, then your attention is enlightened. Just put your attention and the whole thing will subside. It is like a light, if you put light to anything that is darkness the thing will disappear. It will work out, just put your attention. From where do these ideas come, from your ego or from your superego, just find out because you know all about it what is the ego and the superego is, what sort of ideas are coming, you can just watch it and you can get rid of that, it is not difficult. You can remain into thoughtless awareness. There are so many ways we have by which you develop yourself and grow.
Yes, no doubt he said he was a prophet he was the Son of God.
What is Holy Trinity?
Holy Trinity is God the Father, God the Mother, and God the Son.
Ask direct questions.
Just now if you ask direct questions how am I to answer them? That I will tell you later alright? Alright?
So no doubt you have to find out also certain things, find out things about me, things about Sahaja Yoga because I am very cautious, and very careful because I know the ego of Human Beings, if you say one word they just jump on it so I am very careful but to you I am going to tell because you are realised. But first of all get your realisation before your ego starts jumping about alright? Just see it, it’s just there it keeps giving you ideas just look at that, tell him to wait for a while till you get your realisation. Through your rationality you are not going to go there. I have told you there is an instrument which has to trigger it. It is effortless not by thinking you are going to reach there, it is going to happen to you it is a happening, so just wait and see, don’t allow your mind to take over you because if your mind comes in between it will try to drag you behind. What has your mind done so far, nothing, why depend on your mind?
What is? Conscience? Conscience, conscience is the thing that gives you the religion, is the balancing force, conscience is the one that is sustainance within you, that’s the one that is all the time giving you balance that is within you as I said so is there is religion within you, the conscience is there but we are very good at killing it every moment.
Not aloud, alright, we will do it later, alright yes?
This kundalini is placed at the triangular bone, you may not even feel the awakening of it. If you are a smooth instrument it will just shoot off. It will not be felt but what you will feel is absolute calm and a thoughtless awareness as they call it is the first stage where in Sanskrit language it is called as Nirvicharya Samadhi, nirvicharya samadhi that is the first stage, Samadhi means enlightened consciousness, first the consciousness is enlightened, at the stage where you are thoughtless, the second stage where you rise into is doubtless awareness is called as Nirvikalpa Samadhi where there is no doubt left. Between this and that you are faced with doubts all kinds of nonsensical doubts but only remember if you have felt the vibrations if you have felt the cool breeze there is something about it. Let us go forward with it, let us go higher with it and work it out so it starts today.
Please put your hands just like this towards me just like this, with your feet on the ground straight. Just like this. Think like I know what you are thinking some of you are thinking is this hypnosis? See if I want to gain something out of you why would I hypnotise, am I mad? To hypnotise a person and carry on on your head? I am not to gain anything from you alright? This is the first thing I do not want anything neither can you give me anything. Now you are taking something from me, so
there is no question of hypnosis. I have no interest, you have to gain something. Just put your hands just as if you are asking for something and then close your eyes. You must have respect and regard for yourself that you are that light and you are going to get it and you are to be enlightened. You are not ordinary people you are not animals you are Human Beings and you are great and you are going to get it, you are not going to feel small about it. If you are going to get it if you do not get it doesn’t matter it is going to work out. You can close your eyes if you can close them properly, some of you may not be able to close because eyelids may just flutter out although such people should open their eyes. If your hands are shaking also please open your hands . If there is no shaking if there is a regular flow and for which you shouldn’t be worried and do not start thinking about it. Just allow your mind to rest a little while. (Shri Mataji is Blowing into microphone)
Put your hands like this, all of you. First thing you feel absolute blankness in your head you watch your thought and you find there is no thought coming to you then you start feeling a cool breeze, some people might feel a tingling in the hands or some sort of a burning, then just throw it away. But if it is flowing a cool breeze just allow it to pass. All those who are feeling a cool breeze in the hands please raise your hands, all those who are feeling it. Raise them higher is it alright can you feel it. Then put up your hands all of you all of you whether Sahaja Yogis or not please put up your hands, Good. Now again raise your hands All those who are feeling the cool breeze in their hands raise them higher, both the hands, raise them higher more. They have got it. There, Good. Now take down your hands and those who have come for the first time and are not feeling anything in the hands please raise your hands. Good yes, so those who are not feeling if they could come here we would work on them.
Christian Tradition And Christ December 21, 2022
Public Program Day 1. Vienna (Austria), 5 September 1984.
Shri Mataji: I bow to all the seekers of truth.
It is so enamouring to see so many seekers in Vienna who have come to receive their Realization.
Sahaja Yoga is not a new thing. In the tradition of spirituality it is mentioned about 14.000 years back by Markandeya. That ultimately it is the force within you of the Holy Ghost, which is called as Kundalini residing in the triangular bone has to give the Realization. But for that happening human being had to be prepared. People had to be balanced. And that is how many prophets came on this earth after that in the same tradition to prepare people to have that balance. Right from Abraham, Moses we see them, follow them up, up to Raja Janaka who was the father-in-law of Rama. And later on we had so many others like Mohammed Sahib, Nanak Sahib on this earth to tell us about having a balance in live. They taught us moderation and not to go to extremes.
You can see within ourselves we have two sides – one is the left, another is the right side. But the human nature is that that whatever one may try they make extreme of everything – they can do it. Like when they talked about God they went to the extreme of thinking they where God themselves or they thought that now God can be organized by human beings. Because of this extreme nature they could never recognize the reality. Reality lies in the central path. Like those who are very futuristic people who are planning all the time, who are running in the future will always miss the point. And those who are on the left side, who are lethargic also miss the point because they stick to their past. Whatever they have achieved from the past they think that is the right thing, that is what that is – is the reality. Specially those who are very much conditioned by the past cannot see the reality at all. So logically we reach a point where we understand that if you become a futuristic person or if you deny that there is nothing like reality, I have to find out myself then you miss the point. And those who believe in their conditioning like, “Now I have got it, I have found it, I am that”, are also away from reality. You have seen right from the beginning how Jews thought that they are the ones who are chosen by God. Because Moses brought them out of the mire of slavery. And then Moses Himself saw the way Jews were going, so He said, “All right, bring a very strong law,” as you have seen in the chapter of [Jeremiah ?], where He says that you have to kill a person who does wrong. These laws of Shariat were taken over by the Muslims and Jews do not regard it as something of their own use.
Then it advanced further when Christ came onto this earth. He also said in very simple straight forward words that, “You are to be born again.” Then Nicodemus asked Him that, “Why to enter into the womb of my mother?” Christ said, “No, whatever is born of the flesh is the flesh. You are to be born of the Holy Spirit. The Holy Spirit is going to give your birth, your second birth.” So that whatever is born of the Spirit is the Spirit.
But there also Christ completely failed to communicate I think, because nobody paid attention to this fact that you have to become the Spirit. Now how do we become Spirit? Whatever we become in our evolution is felt on our central nervous system, on our conscious mind. As human beings we know what is the color, we know what is dirty, filthy, but animals do not know. So if you are genuine seekers, if you are truthful about it you must know that the experience of Spirit has to be on the central nervous system. So one thing we have to accept from these great people who came on this earth that we have something called the Spirit within us. And we have to become that Spirit. In an ordinary language we can understand that so far in our attention we do not have the Spirit. So this Spirit has to come into our attention.
I don’t know about German language but English is a very elusive language in what Spirit is – what we called the Atma, Spirit in the heart, the reflection of God, then Spirit is also a dead body, also Spirit is what you drink as alcohol. (Laughter)
But in Sanskrit language it is called as the Atma, is the Self, is the being. Now when we, I say I, I say so, either I say through My ego or I say through My conditioning. So when we live to our mental projections which is a limited instrument, whatever we do is not absolute.
For example one “Mister I” doesn’t think the way another “Mister I” thinks. But the Spirit which is the reflection of God Almighty within us in our heart is the collective being. That is the absolute. That is the light. When that light comes within our attention we start seeing how we are related to each other. And we find out our wholesomeness.
We find out we are part and parcel of one personality, which is called as collective consciousness. But you actually become, it is not that just that, “Now I am the part and parcel of the whole,” but you really become on your central nervous system. When this Kundalini rises and pierces through your fontanel bone area you start feeling the Cool Breeze of the Holy Ghost coming out of your head.
Now what is this Holy Ghost is nobody knows as far as the priests are concerned. To My amazement I asked a high gentleman who was a priest of a very great repute that, “What is the Holy Ghost?” So he says, “I am agnostic.” So I said, “What are you doing?” He said, “I am doing my job.”
Now what could be this Holy Ghost? Let us see because if there is the God Almighty, the Father and the Son, how can you have a Son without the Mother? So there has to be a Mother and that Mother is the Primordial Mother which is reflected within us as the Shakti or you call it as Kundalini. So this is the Holy Ghost as described in the Bible.
To understand about Christ also one has to go to other scriptures. Same about Mohammed Sahib, same about Moses. But all this religions surprisingly have become like small points stagnating. So one has to understand that when we talk of the Holy Trinity it is the Father, the Mother and the Son. So this Mother, this Holy Ghost is represented within us as the Kundalini. She resides within us as a living force. And is called as a residual energy because the whole body is created, the mind is created, ego is created, but that has not yet manifested itself. It has not manifested because when it manifest then you get the effects of it. So the Kundalini is the power of pure desire, the desire of God, is the Primordial Mother. Now this pure desire within us has not yet manifested, if it had we would have been satisfied people. But we are not satisfied because we haven’t found that which gives complete satisfaction. So this power of our pure desire resides in the Kundalini in a sleeping state till we come across someone who has the capacity to awaken this Kundalini.
Now it is very simple to understand if you understand how we sprout a seed, which is a living process. When you sow the seed into the Mother Earth, the Mother Earth has the capacity to sprout the seed. How much do you pay to the Mother Earth? How much to you exercise about it? It is all spontaneous, it’s sahaj. So this spontaneity is the sign of life’s force. Our evolution has come through that life force of spontaneity. But it is very difficult for many human beings to accept that it should happen spontaneously.
( …child was suffering of epilepsy during the speech… )
What is it? What is the matter? What is it?
I mean, if you have somebody who is suffering from epilepsy it’s better to take the child outside, because the force here is so much of spirituality that it reacts, so better take the child out – but the child will be cured, no doubts – but take the child out.
Now when the Kundalini rises She passes through these six centers within us by which She enlightens these centers. And as a result of that we get our physical wellbeing. Now for example if a boy who has epilepsy is a possessed personality. And you know when Christ also addressed people the epileptic started shouting. So on the left hand side when we have problems of our mental problems – schizophrenic or this epilepsy or all these things – they also get completely cured. But this is not so important, it is just when we are going to have a vision of our Spirit and when we are going to establish the purity of God within ourselves our whole temple gets cleaned up. So the temple gets automatically cleaned up and we feel that we are purified. The innocence gets awakened within us automatically. Now Christ has said, “Thou shalt not have adulterous eyes.” But how many people there are you find who have no adulterous eyes? Now these are the people who are innocent. Those eyes are innocent have to be something special. And they are the ones about whom Christ has said that, “They are twice born.” So the innocence within them is awakened.
Then after the entry into this chakra which you see there the Kundalini sucks in both your ego and superego as a balloon, you can see them there. By that you become thoughtlessly aware, you go beyond thought. A thought raises and falls of, and then is another thought that rises and falls of. But there is a space in between and you go and steady yourself in that space of thoughtless awareness. But when the Kundalini pierces through then you start feeling the All pervading power all around you. Like the Cool Breeze. You feel in the hand something going in from all around. And when you start growing up then you start giving to others. But you become again collectively conscious in the sense that you can feel your own centers now, you know which center is catching on the fingertips.
But now I feel here all of you have one common problem, it’s the left Vishuddhi as we call it – this finger is catching. Now what does that mean? That means that you people feel guilty for nothing at all. You condemn yourself for nothing at all. And you think you must suffer for getting to God. Now logically you understand that why should you suffer to go to God? It was all right before Christ, but why after Christ has suffered for us? Are we going to suffer more than what He has suffered? So why should we suffer? In the name of this suffering, people go to the left side.
If a human being leads a moderate life he’ll never get diseases, he’ll never have any trouble. But under the imaginary idea that you have to suffer and that you are guilty you go on moving towards the left. And what is on the left? Is the collective sub-consciousness, is all that is dead. In Vienna or Austria I think there are more dead than living. (Laughter) The whole left side is catching. Since My arrival here I am trying to clear out the left side of Vienna. And on top of that you people feel guilty. (Shri Mataji laughing) You are moving in the wrong direction all together. Now see the seriousness of it.
The other day I saw a very good demonstration of the cancer research doctors who showed on the BBC that when a person is vulnerable to cancer he is attacked by some entities, some proteins which exist within ourselves since our creation. They gave the name to those things as proteins 58, protein 52, just giving names, but they do not explain it. So this area they are describing is nothing else but the collective subconscious. And this attack comes to you from that collective subconscious. That means if you try to go to the left you are in for trouble. So we create our own problems. Those who try to live with the left sided ideas of feeling unhappy all the time, frustrated, suffering – suffer. Now those who feel guilty on this side of the left Vishuddhi which I am feeling it too much you all are caught up, get the trouble called Angina or sort of a thing where the blood cannot flush up.
Now we have so much leisure in life that we sit down and try to create our own miseries. To understand real miseries you must get out of all these affluent places and go and see for yourself what misery is. But those who really face, really face miseries are happier people. In the developing countries I have not seen many people who feel guilty, very few. They never feel guilty, they have no time. (Laughter) That’s why it is said that cancer is a rich man’s disease.
So as a result of the Kundalini awakening you come in the center, your attention from the left side is pulled in the center.
Same thing like this boy today was attacked by the left side will come to the center and he’ll be cured. Now the right side people are the people who are extremely aggressive type. Both are just the same, one aggresses other, another aggresses himself.
Those who are very much futuristic and of that kind get another type of trouble of a very active heart and a very active liver. They suffer from over activity and they go in a circle and they can’t stop it. (Shri Mataji laughing) So to compensate it then they take to alcoholism or all kinds of things which are left sided. And the left sided take to violence and all kinds of nonsensical things – just to balance.
The whole world is today filled with violence. We all talk of peace but there is no peace within. We have created atombombs to kill each other; no animal has done such a thing. How can we get over the war situation unless and until there is peace within us. But when you get collectively conscious you know we are all part and parcel of one personality.
So if this finger is feeling sad or rather I would say is hurt another comes to help it without feeling any obligation about it, it’s a relieve to yourself. Then the question comes, “Who is the other?” But only after Realization when you are connected to the mains then only you start feeling that compassion that flows. Otherwise whatever compassion you try to express gives you an ego. But after Realization you become a personality which is hollow and the All pervading grace flows to you and you enjoy witnessing it. In that state you are completely at peace with yourself and peace with others. When a person gets Realization for the first time you enjoy human beings as beautiful flowers. After Realization only you have some meaning to your life that you yourself realize, “Oh God, I did not know that I am such a glorious thing.” Because once you become the light you give the light. And the whole priorities change in such a beautiful manner that you become absolutely confident, fearless and loving personality. Your mere presence can cure people. Your mere presence can do thousand and one thing which you are amazed how it works out. Many people ask Me a question that, “Why is it in India which is such a Yoga country people are not happy?” I would say relatively they are very happy people. But materially they are not so good. But Krishna had said that, “Yoga kshema vahamyam” – when you will get your Yoga you will get your wellbeing. But Indians after the 300 hundred years of slavery have become very westernized. Now they are trying to develop on your way the plastic affluence. Say in this all group how many Indians there are? None. So those who are in charge of affairs have no wisdom of their own, they take their wisdom from the West. I think they will also dig out everything from the Mother Earth, have big factories, then they’ll have tinned food and then after right that they’ll become Hippies and then they will come to Sahaja Yoga. (Laughter) It’s a circle they have to go trough. But it can be short circuited and in the villages Sahaja Yoga is working out very well for your information by which people are improving in every way, even in material way.
So now when you receive your Realization the first thing that happens to you that in your attention you become collectively conscious. Mohammed Sahib has said, “At the time of resurrection your hands will speak.” He has written more about resurrection than about doomsday, but Muslims do not think about it.
So you start feeling in your hand the Cool Breeze of the Holy Ghost, and by this Cool Breeze, which is the energy of the integrated Divinity you can, you are anyone, you can vibrate the water, and it can be sometimes ten times. With these vibrations you can cure a mad person. Not only that, but by giving Realization to others – anyone can give Realization to so many people that you receive the blessings of your own being. And this new dimension makes you feel that the whole world is one. All petty-mindedness, all short-sightedness, all useless nationalism, everything falls off. You become so powerful that all your habits fall off. You are like a lord, nobody can entice you. But the attention that you have works, it acts. If you pay attention to something it acts, it works. Like – there was somebody who said, “Mother, how can it act?” I said, “All right now what to you want to know?” He said, “I want to know about my father who hasn’t telephoned to me from Scotland.” I said, “All right, put your hands and just think of your father. And these are the centers of your father. And he started getting a burning in this area and I said, “That’s it, that means he is down with very bad bronchitis.” So he telephoned to his mother and he found out that his father was down with very bad bronchitis. (Laughter) Now I said, “You pay attention to it, just think of it.” And after an hour he said, “Miraculously I am cured.”
So the first meaning of yoga means the union with the Divine, which is fantastic itself. But the second one means the deftness how to handle this All pervading power. It pulsates into everything. But you have to learn how to handle it, which is called as pure knowledge – Shuddha Vidya in Sanskrit. And within a short time you become a master.
It is very surprising I came to Vienna, and in such a short time there are so many people in Vienna who have got Realization. And within this short time there are so many masters we have in Vienna. An interviewer asked Me, “Have you got all your children, Mother, who are scholars?” I said, “No, they are ordinary people.” I said, “You become the knowledge after Realization, so you know everything.” Because you know the essence of everything and that’s how you can explain everything. As a result of that you really become dynamic. Your problems are solved automatically, and you are free, you have entered really into the Kingdom of God, where is no taxation, no laws, no regulations, and you are looked after like a king. But in the beginning every human being seems to be diffident, if not sceptical. Either this or that. They start thinking, “How can it be? How can that be? How can be I am such a bad person, I have done this,” all guilty business starts coming up in the mind. But you must know that this creation has created you as the epitome of creation, and the creator Himself is worried. If you do not get your Realization then what about Him, what’s going to happen to Him? He is more, much more anxious than you are because the time has come, this is the Blossomtime then thousands of you have to get your Realization. But you have to listen to Me with a scientific mind – that is an open mind and not a closed mind. It is like a hypothesis for you, all right, but if it is proved, why not? Why not have it, if you have all this powers, all this properties, all this glories within yourself? Why to hesitate? I don’t want anything from you. You cannot give Me anything. Except that you get your Realization. That is your birthright. But very difficult to convince people. Only the false gurus can do it because they mesmerize everyone – so finished. But you have to rise in your own freedom. You have to evolve in your own glory. So such a method is useless. So whatever has to be achieved has to be through your freedom and through your wisdom.
So I think for today’s introduction I have covered lots of subjects and I’ve tried to bring you to the center of the subject, that we have to have our Realization. So after this we’ll have the program of meditation, but those who want to leave should leave. Just a minute, please. Just a minute. Those who want to leave should leave first because after this I will not like people to be disturbed, so please to be civil and fair to others, if you want to leave you can leave first.
Please, those who want to leave should leave first.
Aside: No, no, Gregoire, let them leave first, because most of them, those who asked questions last time left. So I want them first to leave and then ask questions. They should not waste the energy. No, no, no that’s waste of energy.
All those who want to leave should leave. We’ll only allow people to stay here who would stay for about 15 minutes more in patience, and not people who only ask questions and then leave. We don’t want the time of others to be wasted for nothing at all.
There is some (space). Let these people also to be seated more. Be more comfortable. You have to be comfortable, please. If you can come this way and that way. You all can come, there is a room there. Better. Be comfortable.
They can come this way. Is there some of the Sahaja Yogis can give room to these people who are standing all the time. You please see that they are seated properly.
All right, now you can ask Me questions. (Shri Mataji laughing)
Last time those who asked the questions for hours together, and then they disturbed everybody and then they went away.
Now, please ask the questions now, if you have any. I’ll be very happy to answer your questions now.
Left – see, this is what happened last time.
Aside: Who is that? Now, what is he saying? You tell Me in English.
QUESTION: Shri Mataji, he says that in the Christian tradition he has heard that the Holy Spirit is something which comes from outside and now You said it is something which is inside. How can one unite the two?
Shri Mataji: Now, it is a controversial thing is Christian tradition itself. Now it has come to a crux , so I can tell you about it. There is a – recently a book written by an Englishman I think, who has challenged the miracles of Christ, His Immaculate Conception and all these things. And according to him Paul never talked about it. Now you see, I have to tell you the truth. I must tell you the truth. Now this gentleman Mr. Paul, when I saw him in the Bible I was surprised, who is this gentleman here? He was himself a Jew who tortured Christians, he saw that Stephen was tortured. Then suddenly he gets a supra-conscious, some sort of an epileptic fit in that he sees some light and he becomes the organizer of Christianity, who had never met Christ. He was an intellectual and he intellectualized Christ and he established himself in the Bible. How is he there? What he did was to write letters of organizing God and all the people because he wanted to go to Gentiles. He fought very much with Peter and there was no combination established because Peter was not an intellectual. So this Mr. Paul started a religion of his own and surprisingly Khalil Gibran has said the same thing that I am saying that, “Who is this strange man Mr. Paul?” It would be like this epileptic boy talking of Sahaja Yoga. And not only, Khalil Gibran also says that Paul is a person who does not know what he is talking about, he is not sure about himself. He said it very clearly in that book “The Son of Man”, you please read it. Complete chapter. So this Peter was completely made into nothing by Paul. And then he incarnated on this earth as Augustin and started this so called tradition.
Now you’ll be surprised there is an Archbishop of Durham who says that all these things are hallucinations of the disciples and there was no Immaculate Conception and there was no miracles of Christ. Because intellectuals can’t understand these things. Now this church where – they bestowed upon him a very great honour in a church, that church was burnt by a great fall of a lightning in there; absolutely burnt on top. So the Archbishop says that, “It was God’s grace that the walls did not burn.”
I tell you that not only Christ had Immaculate Conception but every miracle He did is a fact. And He is the Truth and can be established when you come to Sahaja Yoga – that He is such a great truth and all these false people who try to malign him. And to challenge Christ is a very dangerous thing. Is very dangerous. Because you must know He has eleven destroying powers, which are called in Sanskrit as Ekadasha Rudra. He is the great incarnation of Mahavishnu. He is innocence personified. He has all the powers of innocence and who can challenge Him? Unless and until one has Realization one can’t understand Christ.
So many people are shattered. Their faith is shattered the way these intellectuals have taken over the tradition, so called tradition of Christianity.
Yes, but it’s true that the Holy Ghost can bless people and the Kundalini rises when the Holy Ghost blesses the people; so the Kundalini rises because of that is a fact. But they don’t know how to explain, what they talk they don’t know. They did not even explain in any way, because they don’t know anything about it. They don’t know, they have no knowledge about it. They did not even explain that when the Holy Ghost blessed the disciples what language they were speaking and what they were doing that people thought they were mad. Because the Holy Ghost blessed them they felt the Cool Breeze and they started talking the language of the centers, as we talk. Not that somebody started speaking German, somebody started, say, speaking Sanskrit. It is only possible these things happen when you get possessed. But they got their Realization and they started to speak the Divine language of the centers. And when these powers are felt then you start moving your hands in the deftness of it, you know how to use these hands, how to give balance, how to raise the Kundalini. The hands start moving and that’s what people thought they were mad.
But I move in a society of another kind as you know and in that I meet many ambassadors and great intellectuals, and they all say that these disciples of Christ were all stupid fools. Because they have not been to universities – what university did Christ go to? This is how it is a big rift now between the people who feel Christ is the embodiment of Divinity and those who are intellectuals of this kind, who are challenging Christ. But Sahaja Yoga can prove that Christ resides on this center of Agnya there at the cross; because when the Kundalini stops at that point, at the Agnya point, you have to take the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, then the Kundalini rises in its dignity. “That is the gate,” He has said.
So now as far as the tradition is concerned I’m rather doubtful how the tradition took, every religion, even Hinduism is like that. Islam is the same. Any religion you take, the tradition is nothing but tradition of going down, down, down, down. If it was a right tradition there would have been no problem. Today we have so many churches, so many fightings. You see the Vatican in the Mafia, Mafia in the banks. I can’t understand.
What Christ you gave Him – the thorn to be adorned on his crown. What kind of crowns these people are wearing? In India also, we have also now started another kind of competition with your crowns. So somebody is making a big umbrella of gold. I must say crown is all right – they are wise, but umbrella is dangerous. (Shri Mataji laughing) They are playing with Divinity, they have no sense that God Almighty has a tremendous wrath for such people. The religion of Christianity or any religion is the religion of the living God. At different times there were great flowers on the “Tree of Life”, but we plucked them and said, “This is mine, this is mine,” and we are fighting the dead. But in Sahaja Yoga you will know the beauty of all these great prophets and you’ll be amazed how they have enriched us, all of them.
So now, I think one question was quite – needed lot of explanation and thank God I could say it in Vienna.
Now let us have our Realization.
Now, we’ll have tomorrow, all right? You can bring the question. I’ll definitely answer your questions. All right? It’s already 8:30. Because you see, it depends on how it works out.
Now this is only just to take help from Mother Earth, though there is something plastic in between. Contact is – there is plastic, but doesn’t matter. (Shri Mataji laughing) If you are sitting on the Mother Earth it would have worked out much faster. (Shri Mataji laughing) But with shoes you are a little bit tied up, so you leave it lose, it’s better.
Aside: Are you all right with German?
Do you follow his German, is it all right? (Shri Mataji laughing) All right.
There is no language for love. It is silent.
Please put your hands like this.
Now again I have to make a humble request that don’t feel guilty. At this moment forget the past. Don’t condemn yourself, please. Forgive yourself and forgive everyone.
Now at this time you have to just close your eyes and I’ll tell you how you yourself will be giving energy to your different centers – yourself. And your Kundalini will rise spontaneously because with your energy you’ll open out the spaces of chakras.
Now the left side represents your desire to get Realization, is a power of desire so you put the left hand constantly on your lap towards Me. Like this. On your lap, on your lap. Very relaxed way, but with the fingers opened out.
Still the guilt is too much, please. (Shri Mataji laughing)
Now, with the right hand we have to do the action, which is very simple. You have to first put your right hand on your heart. On the left hand side. Now, all the centers on the left hand side we are going to nourish.
Place your hand on the heart and press it a little bit, not much.
You can keep your eyes shut till I tell you to open, because if your eyes are open the Kundalini may not rise.
Now when you put your right hand on your heart, close your eyes and you have to ask Me a question. You can call Me Shri Mataji, or if it is difficult – Mother. “Mother, am I the Spirit?” Ask this question three times. Without feeling guilty.
Aside: [Hindi] Heart! [Hindi]
(Note: Shri Mataji asks for a candle to be placed at the table)
Now without feeling guilty again you put your right hand on the upper part of your stomach on the left side. This is the center of the Primordial Master. Left towards Me, left towards Me. Left hand towards Me, please. Left hand towards Me.
But other way round you have done. You are doing the other way round. Left hand towards Me. To her also. Yes, left hand towards Me, please, again.
Now logically you have to say when you said – when you asked a question about the Spirit you must know if you are the Spirit you are your own Master. So, logically you ask the second question at this center, “Mother, am I my own master?” Ask this question three times please. Three times.
Somebody should see also if somebody is not doing properly, it’s all right now.
Now you have to put this hand in the lower region of your abdomen where resides the center for your knowledge. The instrument to work out the Divine resides there, called as Swadishthana Chakra. So to know the knowledge of working out the Divine power you have to ask Me that you want that power because I cannot force it upon you.
Now when you put your hand there, six times, because there are six sub-plexuses to this center, you have to say, “Mother, may I have the true knowledge?” Six times please.
“The true knowledge, Mother, give me the true knowledge.”
Aside: Hm, better.
Six times please.
Aside: Hm, good. [Hindi]
Now six times you ask for it.
Now raise your hand above on the upper part of your abdomen where you had put it on the center of Primordial Master. Now as you have asked for the true knowledge the first thing you have to say at this center with full confidence in yourself that, “Mother, I am my own master.” Say it ten times please, in My presence.
Keep your eyes shut, please. Please say it ten times.
Aside: Heart. [Hindi] Hm, better! [Hindi] Hm, better! [Hindi]
Now raise this right hand to your heart, please.
At this point now you have to again assert twelve times because there are twelve sub-plexuses, “Mother, I am the Spirit.” Please say it twelve times, on the heart. And the heart is very much catching – open your heart! With full confidence, not to be frightened of anything.
You must have the earnest desire, that’s very important, because it’s the power of desire.
Now you have to put this right hand on the base of your neck on the left hand side, from the front. Now this is the center which gets caught up – it gets caught up when you feel guilty. That’s how you also get spondylitis. Now at this center please say 16 times, “Mother, I’m not guilty.” And if you want to suffer and you have been doing all this guilty business too much then say it 108 times to punish yourself. (Shri Mataji laughing) You have to be in a cheerful mood – you are entering into the Kingdom of God.
Aside: Ah, now it has worked out.
Now you have to put your right hand across your forehead please, and hold it. At this point you have to say, “Mother, I forgive everyone.” Many people think it is difficult, but it is a myth. When you don’t forgive what do you do? You just torture yourself. Just say that, and you’ll be amazed how your head will become lighter. Say it from your heart.
Now put this hand at the back of your head. At the back of your head you have to just say, without feeling guilty, without feeling guilty, again I say, without feeling guilty that, “Oh God, if I have done anything wrong, please forgive me.” But don’t feel guilty. Because God is the Ocean of Love, He is the Ocean of Compassion. Above all He is the Ocean of Forgiveness.
Now will you please not feel guilty, I am telling you hundred times please don’t feel guilty when you say that. By feeling guilty is not going to forgive you. Just say it out. To feel guilty is not your idea, I can assure you, because you are the Spirit. Spirit cannot be guilty. My only worry is that you don’t feel guilty and your Kundalini doesn’t stop at that point. (Shri Mataji laughing)
Now put the hand on top of your head on the fontanel bone area with your palm pressing against the scalp.
Aside: Now, better. It’s coming.
At this point you have to again ask Me for your Self Realization, I cannot force on you. I have to respect your freedom.
Now you have to say seven times, “Mother, please I want Realization, please give me my Realization.”
(Shri Mataji blowing into the microphone)
Now change over your hand. Please put right hand on your lap and left hand on your head. Keep your eyes shut.
(Shri Mataji blowing into the microphone)
Now just feel if you are getting the Cool Breeze on top of your head. Change your hands and see. About four, five inches high.
Change your hands again.
Hm, better. Are you feeling? Good? Good! Just move it like this then you can see. Don’t think, don’t think – watch Me without thinking.
Ha! All right! You got it. You got it? Good!
Both the hands now. Now you put your hands up like this. And ask a question, “Mother is this the power of Holy Ghost? Is this the Breeze of the Holy Ghost? Is this the All pervading Power of God?”
Aside: Color of the hands changes.
All right? See now in your hands are you feeling the Cool Breeze?
Some are feeling on the left, some are feeling on the right also.
So, those who are feeling in the left should put their right hand towards Me and left hand like this
After some time you’ll start feeling in the right hand also.
Now those who are feeling the Breeze in the right hand should put the left hand towards Me and right hand on the stomach. Those who are feeling on the right hand. Right hand on the stomach. Better. Feel it. Better now. And watch Me without thinking.
Aside: Hamsa is catching.
Tomorrow you must put some nasal drops and then come here because you all have got little sinus trouble.
Ha, all right? Good? Now put both the hands, see now. Just. All right? Did you feel? Good!
Now those who have felt over their heads and in their hands raise your hands, both the hands.
Great ! (Shri Mataji lauging)
Sahaja Yogis: Bolo Shri Durga Mata Shri Adi Shakti Shri Nirmala Devi Ki Jai!
Shri Mataji: Oh, I’m so thankful to you.
My greatest desire is that you have touched your Realization. Now you don’t think about it. Keep quiet. Tomorrow relax and come to the program and you have it completely fixed. But it is like a very small primule being sprouted out like a germinating power, a little plant of your Spirituality. You have to be gentle with it and careful. Say, even a month if you just establish yourself you’ll all become great trees. Don’t discuss about it, enjoy the silence. Who haven’t got it I know also, haven’t got it, doesn’t matter. Please come tomorrow and you all will have it.
Now you’ve got the absolute and like a computer you can ask any question, any absolute – like ask a question, “Was Christ born out of Immaculate Conception?” Ask a question in your heart.
Ask this question. You’ll get much more Breeze.
All right? Now, you ask another question, “Did He – did Christ walk on the water?”
Ask a third question, “Was Christ the Son of God?”
You are in without thoughts.
Ask a question, “Is there God?”
Now the last question you should ask, “Am I the part and parcel of the Whole?”
May God bless you all!

Earth’s An Intelligent Being February 19, 2022
What does this mean for humans?
Adam Frank, co-author of the paper from the University of Rochester in a press release claimed that “we don’t yet have the ability to communally respond in the best interests of the planet.” Frank was referring to human activities on Earth that are currently causing radical changes on the planet – be it in the form of climate change, pollution, or resource exploitation.
According to Frank, such enquiries into the Earth’s invisible mind could help humans become responsible in terms of how we treat the planet and its abundant resources. In addition, he believes that this might help humans find aliens.
Knowledge of the Roots November 22, 2021
1983-0525 Public Program, University of Sussex, Falmer near Brighton, United Kingdom
I was really very happy to learn that Sussex University Sahaja Yoga centre has been very kind to invite me to speak to them. It’s such a pleasure to talk to the students because they are the ones who have always been, in any country, been responsible for any new step, whether it was political, economic or social, which was to be taken boldly. Students are the people who have their idealism intact still and when they are studying, they don’t get biased easily. They keep their minds open to every knowledge because they are new to it, but those who become experts can become very biased, very conditioned by what they read or they think to be right. But, the students can also be very much vulnerable, because they do not know whether whatever new comes to them is the truth or some sort of falsehood. So, at this life, when you are a student, you have to be very careful to understand that if you have to seek the truth, you have to be alert about it.
First and foremost thing as students we enter into university. It’s a beautiful name ‘University’ meaning that you get all the knowledge of the universe and when you enter into university, you come with an open mind and with an understanding that whatever you have to learn in the way of a student, you are not the teacher and that humility always helps the students to learn about anything they want to know about any part of their knowledge. Now what you learn in the university is the knowledge of the tree. Knowledge that you can perceive and understand through your mental activity, but what I’m going to tell you about today is the knowledge of the roots.
Roots of the tree, from where the whole knowledge comes.
Now to believe in me or to understand me, it is not necessary for you to have any sort of faith in me or a sort of surrendering position, but you must also know that if I have to tell you something new, you must keep your mind open to understand what I have to tell you.
When we study, say economics, take a subject which is very common these days and it is even regarded as a higher science than philosophy. What do we learn? The essence of economics is very simple, that ‘wants’ in particular are satiable but in general, ‘wants’ are not satiable. This is the essence of Sahaja Yoga also, like whatever you want to have, you can have today and tomorrow you will run after another thing. That’s why we have economics because this is the tendency of the human mind, but why it is so? Why is it we really strive, supposing you are doing your graduation, you will strive your heart to be a graduate but you won’t be satisfied. You would like to do higher studies or like to take up a job and even if you get a job, you will not be satisfied. Then you want to build a house, then you want to have a car, then you students want to have a nice bike, alright. When they have it, they want something else, a helicopter maybe I don’t know what but it goes on increasing, you are never happy with what you have. Fully satisfied.
Now the reason for that, you can find it in Sahaja Yoga, because the roots are deeper down which you do not know. It’s alright to build up the whole science of economics on something but what about the roots that have created this big tree of economics?
The roots are that none of these material things are going to give us full satisfaction, this is the root. So what is going to give us that satisfaction, we come to the second logical question. What is the need of a human being to feel satisfied? There is something higher, something deeper, something that we have missed. This is definite, now what is that? We can refer if you are not upset or angry or we can say biased about the scriptures, any scriptures, I’m not saying Bible or say Torah or Indian scriptures or Buddha sayings or Tao or anything. You will find one common thing they have said, all of them have said one thing common and that is ‘that you are to be born again’.
You have to know your Spirit, you have to become the Spirit because that lacking in us, in our awareness, because we are not yet the Spirit, whatever we know without it is only the mental projection, which is limited as our mind is limited. So to know the unlimited or to know the roots, you have to become the Spirit. This is the first condition they have given. Now if you just don’t deny them, we should look into it, we just have to become the Spirit. Now what is that, what is that? We can ask, which is the Spirit. If there is something like Spirit within us, we have not yet felt it, we have never felt the Spirit within us and what is that Spirit and what does it do? What are its qualities? We should try to find out. That’s what you can find out when you become the Spirit, it’s a vicious circle.
The other way around, here nobody will say that you must become a graduate to know about economics, but the other way around thing, you have to go deep down into the roots and how do you do that? Supposing I say you pay attention to yourself. A teacher will say ‘pay attention’ so all the students will start looking at him, looking at the blackboard, but I say pay attention to yourself! Then you will say ‘Mother how do you do it?’ It’s an impossible thing, how do we take our attention inside, it’s all the time outside, how are we to take it inside?
That’s why you have to get your realisation first, you have to become the Spirit by which you can take your attention inside to your roots, that’s why the first condition in the Sahaja Yoga system is that we have to become the Spirit.
Before that, whatever I say, you will say how is it true? You can always challenge, you can always say it may not be true, it may be wrong, it may be false…it’s true, because supposing I have no eyes and you start telling me about the colours, how will I know? So, anybody will say open your eyes first of all, unless and until you open your eyes you won’t be able to understand what I’m talking about. In the same way we have to understand that if we have to know about the roots, we have to penetrate within, for that we have to become subtler than what we are. We are at a level from which we cannot enter inside ourselves, so we have to become something else and that becoming is only possible if you become the Spirit.
I hope I’m clear on that point. Now, how to become the Spirit is the problem because whenever a teacher tells you do this, you say how? That’s correct, I mean logically that should be the question, how do we become the Spirit? Now if I say, this is our evolutionary process, we have evolved as human beings, come up to this stage and if something more has to happen, it has to happen the same way as evolution has taken place, automatically. What did we do to become human beings from monkeys? If we have become from monkeys. I don’t think anybody remembers anything they have done to become human beings or they have put in any effort to be that, we have done nothing, we have just become human beings spontaneously or we can say automatically, but actually spontaneity relates to a living process. Only living things are spontaneous. You want to sprout a seed, you just put it in the Mother Earth, spontaneously it sprouts, we don’t do anything to it, we don’t stand on our heads, we don’t read any book, we don’t say anything to the seed but it sprouts because it’s built in, within the seed, the quality to become the tree.
In the same way, it is built in within you to become the Spirit.
As you have become a human being, you have to become the Spirit. That’s the evolutionary natural process to which you have to take to. Now if you get satisfied just with whatever state you are in as a human being, you can live, not impossible, I mean you can while away your time, you can carry on but still you will not be a satisfied person. You will not be a blissful person, you will not be a person who can be called as a person who has become an absolute personality. Still you will be living in the relative world because of this mental activity which is going on, which will confuse you completely all the time. You will not know whether this is good or that is good, like these days in England we have a big confusion whether to vote Labour or Conservative or this. We don’t know which one to vote so we will close our eyes, whichever I catch, I will do it. We don’t know what to do. This stage will go away because we haven’t reached that state of absoluteness where we can decide things with absolute authority. This is the thing, this is the right thing.
Once we understand this state that lies within us, then what do we do? We know what is right and what is wrong and right can only be one thing, there cannot be any difference of opinion as to what is right and what is wrong if you do it with your absolute awareness. But, human awareness is not absolute, if it was so, there would have been no problem. There would not have been any necessity to have this ‘mx’ authorised or have this atom bomb produced there. Human beings are the only animals that are doing like this, you don’t find any dogs creating any atom bombs or anything to kill each other, but this is special human failure to show that we are not at an absolute point where we all agree. So how to achieve that is the second point again I said it is spontaneous, it’s a living process and you don’t have to worry about it. It’s all built in within yourself.
So, how many of you have come for the first time for Sahaja Yoga meeting? Let’s see…(Shri Mataji counted five new people and continues) the rest of you have been to Sahaja Yoga meeting so you know about Kundalini, you know awakening of the Kundalini and all those things. Now we have within ourselves, this power by which it is going to happen to us. This is the power of pure desire, of pure desire within us because so far as we have seen all our desires that we have cannot satisfy us. So there must be some desire within us which leads us to completion or to the fulfilment of our ultimate desire to be the Spirit, and this power lies in the triangular bone in the lowest part of your spinal cord. Now this lies there or not, it exists or not, whether I’m telling you is correct or not is to be found out. You should not just challenge it, you should see for yourself that sometimes in some people, there are many who have seen it here, you can see the pulsation of this power if there is an obstruction in this person and the awakened Kundalini cannot rise. You can see it with naked eyes absolutely with naked eyes, a pulsation, just like a heartbeat. In some people it is so vigorous that you are amazed that this bone behaves, this triangular bone behaves like a heart beating.
Surprisingly, this bone is called a sacrum and sacrum in Greek language means sacred. Of course for all our knowledge, sacred word is only in the dictionary, we don’t know what sacredness is, what divinity is, what auspiciousness is, thank God there are words but we don’t know what it is supposed to be. Now this they call as a sacred bone and I was amazed and I asked them, why did you call this a sacred bone, when I went to Greece. I was even more amazed to find out that they knew a lot about this knowledge. They told me that they had rapport with Indians, with great philosophers of India who came down and told them all about it and they had this practice with them. Even the knowledge of their medical science was very much based on those ideas, even in England, when you had your medical science first, you’ll be amazed the basis of it was the same as Sahaja Yoga system. They had three types of human beings and they are to be treated that way. But then suddenly I don’t know from where, we started curing, not through the roots but through the leaves. If there is something wrong with the leaf, you treat the leaf and then you find some trouble somewhere in the fruit, you see, it’s like that.
So the medical science became like that, absolutely treating the leaves and the roots were left behind. Now these roots are within you. They are there all the time, you are not aware of them, you’re not aware of so many things within yourself, but once you become aware of them, as you get your realisation. As you get your Spirit manifesting in your attention, in your central nervous system, when you start feeling the vibrations of the Spirit flowing, then you can understand all about them. Whatever I’m saying here today, you can verify it and can find out. To give you a simple example, is that when you have to go to a class of astrology, you have to use a microscope. Now you say that I won’t use the microscope, I would like to see the skin with my naked eye, you cannot, what you will see is the skin that is there. But if you have to see the deeper structure of the skin, you have to use a microscope. In the same way, if you have to see the deeper side of life, you have to use the microscope of your Spirit. Without the Spirit, you cannot understand what is beneath and what is above.
Beneath is your beautiful being, the glorious human being that is created by God and above is the all pervading power of love of God Almighty.
May God bless you.
I would like to have questions from you. That would be better than to talk about it because I must have given, I don’t know how many, thousand lectures so far and there’s no end to it because this is a vast knowledge. Even if you have thousand universities like that, I don’t think it can be completed, but it’s so simple. Once you become that, I don’t have to tell you much. Like this room you have done, if I have to explain about it to someone, I can write a book on this and still they won’t understand anything. They will come here and will never recognise that this is the book I’ve told them about. But if you just open your eyes and come here, you see for yourself and know definitely this is the place you have to be. That’s what it is when you become. You don’t have to know all about it, you just become that.
May God bless you.
I would like you to ask me questions, that would be much better, what do you say Jason?
Q: Is the energy tied physically to this bone, the triangular bone? What happens to the poor unfortunate people who might have lost the bone?
A: No, I don’t think anybody has lost it so far except they are devils you see. It’s not lost easily and I would say that just now we should worry about ourselves, isn’t it? So we can help others. So we can help so many. If we are not equipped, how can we help others? First we should equip ourselves then we’ll think about others. I’m happy you have thought for others, that’s a good sign of generosity but we must have something within ourselves to give, isn’t it?
Q: In what way the chakras and triangular bone, sacrum is associated with the physical body? If somebody is born with one arm, what happens to the chakras?
A: You see, even if you are, chakras are not normally hurt because they are very much placed inside the inner core of the metulae, they are very subtle things, they are not harmed easily, they cannot be harmed but it can be possible that a person who has no backbone but such a person doesn’t exist. I have seen people with crooked ones and they get it straightened and it can work out with them, but without a backbone we don’t exist.
It’s a subtle thing and it’s an energy, it’s an energy centre and it may be in your case it may be just on the borderline supposing on the lumber area, it may move out with another one. So that is not so important. What is important is just now you see, instead of going into details, first we must get our realisation and gradually you will be able to locate everybody’s centres, where they are, because they pulsate and you can see with your own eyes.
Q: If you see them with your own eyes, presumably you can’t photograph them?
A: We have photographs also, we have photograph, we have films, everything we have done, but as I told you that every person has a different style of awakening, in the sense that in some people like a little child, or say a person who is simple hearted, say from a village where he is not so complicated, I mean who doesn’t think too much you see this chakra goes out if you think too much (Shri Mataji’s hand is at Agnya). Or sort of obstructions like that. Then, such a person, if he takes, in a split of a second the whole thing moves out, really, like a jet. But, in a person who is a little complicated or has a disease or physically handicapped or any sort of thing like that, then it takes time. It pulsates much more in those places where they have a problem. So it depends. You cannot say that supposing you say that take my photograph, it may not be there, so we have of course taken photographs, we have films of that, everything. But on some people we have seen it, not all because you don’t keep a camera there all the time to take a photograph, we have taken.
Q: The camera is impartial so presumably if you find one person who has this throbbing, you can do it again (Yogi: but surely Mother could you also mention to him that the Kundalini only throbs like that when there’s a problem there…is that right?)
A: What do you want to achieve by that? Let’s see, what’s the achievement? We should not side track, it’s a very important issue but we should not side track alright? Keep it to the main point, what do we want to do, why do we want to? You see the trouble is we would not like to do anything wasteful, naturally, why should we do anything wasteful, for nothing at all, isn’t it? What we would like to do is achieved easily for the good of everyone without much difficulty, alright, so now to take a photograph, this, that kind of a thing is not necessary. There is no need to do it, but we have taken photographs, no doubt we have taken because you see many a times I have many photographers with me and people with a movie sort of camera are going on. Then they have taken photographs, but it’s of no use, as it is for our purpose, there’s no need to take a photograph. But we have taken and now we have got it and now as your question moves further with it that if somebody has a pulsation, it may disappear after five minutes. It may not be there, it’s just there for the time being because if the Kundalini is rising, it is moving upward you see. So it may not be there, it may reach another point or it just come out from here (Shri Mataji takes her hand to her Sahasrara to demonstrate). Alright?
You should ask me questions which has some advantage, you see, to you and to me both because this is of no meaning, that we should take a photograph, then we should do this, there’s no need to do that, what is the need?
Q: There’s no need for you to do it…
A: But we have.
Q: I would have thought that if you believe through true awakening people may realise the futility of desiring material things that this was the sort of thing you would like to see established as soon as possible….
A: That’s a good idea. We have got it you see we have got but you don’t know, the media people want something bad to happen. They don’t want anything good to be said that this is a way we can say things. I think so, because they are not interested much, in this country, not in other countries, but in this country I don’t think they are very much interested if I tell them that there is such a power and we have a photograph and you can see for yourself, and this happens and cancer can be cured, they are not interested. What to do? It’s not easy.
Q: On the contrary, if you could talk about this …(unclear from public)
A: Alright, so next time I give you the responsibility, you get them to me, they are terrible, you don’t know. Just, I’ll give you a simple example alright. I don’t want to talk against them, they are after all good people, but they don’t see the point you see, that is important and they just don’t want to understand. Simple thing you see, they wanted to advertise me alright, I’ll give you an example of these people, how their mind works. So, I didn’t want to say much but I just said one little sentence that England is the heart of the Universe, which I can prove. And then I talked about William Blake, who said that such and such a thing is going to happen and all that. Where he has used the word that England has to become Jerusalem. I mean it’s an honourable thing I said for them, so they raised an objection today only, that’s why I was delayed, saying that if you say England is the heart of the universe, the Arabs will have objection!
You must understand, you see, you are a student, you must understand what sort of people surround us. I didn’t know what to say! Why will they have objection? Because they too have a place in the universe but England if it is the heart! I have to say that. But supposing I am honouring you, why should you not stand for your honour? Because if you in any case go to Falkland to save your honour there, and here if I say a simple truth – which I know – you don’t want to say that just in an advertisement because the Arabs may catch it and they may disappear from Harrods!
So that’s our media we must understand it’s not so simple as you think. But I’ll be very happy if you can get me some of them. It’s not easy, very difficult people, very difficult.
Q: Are you prepared to say anything about (??)?
A: Yes. I’m prepared to say, not only that, but I can prove it also but it is such a simple sentence. But I’m regarded as a saint in India. If a well known saint is saying that, one should take it as an honour. But that’s not so. That’s not so with people you see. Here I don’t think they take saints seriously in England, perhaps, maybe, but Arabs are taken more seriously I must say. Surprising you know! How can Arabs make an objection to such a thing, I can’t understand. But this is exactly the problem today I was facing. So I think you are the students but you still don’t know the reality of what these people are like but one day you will realise. I’m very happy your attention is on that, I hope so it works out that way, then we can show them pictures and all that alright.
Now what else?
It had only one purpose that I could explain it better to you because I didn’t know what to say to these people, the way they came out with Jerusalem and the objection to Jerusalem. After all if William Blake said it but now we can criticize it because the Arabs don’t like it. Is that the way to look at things? Are the Arabs going to decide for us everything?
Q: Would you be prepared to make any comments about life on other planets?
A: No, there isn’t any. It’s as simple as that. Even if there are, they are not the type of life which you are used to, the different types of things, different style of life. We cannot call them as ‘life’ because our concept of life is different so we shouldn’t call them but as human beings, the awareness of human beings, there is none. But there is something like life you can call it in some places, maybe the matter is moving like life but according to the human conception, you would not call it life.
Q: Is there any difference between humans and animal life on this planet?
A: Difference? Tremendous! I’ll tell you one example. You take your dog through a dirty lane, he can pass through, you cannot. Thousand and one, there is such a difference between animals and human beings.
Q: You were talking about evolution earlier?
A: Yes you have evolved to human state, no doubt.
Q: Would you say in the course of evolution that all life forms were the same and at one point we came at a different life form.
A: Human beings are made in such a way, they can exist as people who can think and can create, it’s as simple as that. You see, that’s why they have developed these things. Supposing an animal feels the dirt or anything, he cannot remove it but human beings can. He can create, see this is the difference and that’s why so many things that human beings have, are only as an accessory to help adjust his life to his surroundings, alright? But say you take a horse or a dog, they have a certain sensitivity to an evil spirit but human beings don’t have that much sensitivity to it. There are some birds, if they disappear from a part of Japan and all that, then people know that there is some sort of rumbling going on in the Mother Earth and some earthquake is expected so people also start departing from the birds you see. There are so many birds as you have heard that they go from one place to another, from Siberia all the way to Australia, how do they do it? We can’t do it, because they have a magnet developed within them which can feel and through which they go. So, of course there are many things which are dropped out in human beings and many things added to him, but are evolved because they can create. You can create. Like an animal cannot create, that’s the difference.
(Same person kept speaking so Shri Mataji asked him to give others a chance and also the discussion is not about evolution at large, Mother is saying that if you do not accept that you are more evolved than animals, how can I argue it out? It’s a fact. You are a human being, you’re definitely more evolved than animals. You can organise yourselves better, you can create, you can think, they cannot think. Can I talk to animals? Can I tell them what I have to tell? Not only that, their Kundalini is not there perfect yet to be awakened, this is the last point of it.
That’s not so important alright? Now let’s see, some other questions.
Same person still wants to ask one more!
Q: If human beings have evolved from animals, there must be something that was brought in to distinguish them from other things?
A: Yes, very true, there is. Raising of the head. You see the way they have raised their body, it has changed the shape of their body. That’s why you must learn Sahaja Yoga, about how the shape of the brain has changed. What has happened that our attention has gone out. Everything you must know, that’s very true, agreed on that point. That’s the thing you have to learn. That’s part of Sahaja Yoga. Absolutely, what has changed human beings? First of all, they are given freedom, if you believe in God. They have been given freedom to decide. Animals have no freedom, if it’s a dog it’s a dog. If it’s a cat it’s a cat, nature will remain the same, but human beings could be a scorpion could be a lion could be a snake could be anything so the freedom that has been given to human beings has made them higher. They got this freedom in the expression when you raised your head like this you see. Also some physical happenings take place within you, which of course I’ll tell you later on when you come to Sahaja Yoga meetings and all that, you will realise how God has given you freedom and by freedom what you developed is the ego within you and that ego has covered your head and you have developed the I-ness. That you are Mr. X and Mr. Y and Mr. Z. That I-ness has come to you, your own entity as Mr. x, y, z. You are cut off, much more from the Divine power; in the sense that now you are your own guide. The freedom is given for you to try the freedom.
Q: Are you saying that evolution was carrying on in it’s merry way and God decided that some peculiar time …..(unclear)
A: It is up to you, of course it is up to you to decide. You see at this juncture you have to decide. At human level you must decide what you want to do further, the decision.
Finally! Another student asks:
Q: You say the attainment of Spirit is the necessary step to see into yourself, but what actual steps can anybody take for attainment of spirit and is there only one way or are there many ways?
A: There’s only one way of sprouting. Only one way that is built in within us, you see, that’s the only way.
Q: Why as an individual want to attain that Spirit to look into myself, what should I do, what practical steps can I personally take towards…
A: Yes, that’s very nice to say, that’s what we have to do alright. That I’ll tell you, that’s a good thing to ask. That is something nice and promising. Alright? What else?
Q: Mother, how far can the intellect take us? Can we understand it with the intellect?
A: How can you, you can’t. You see intellect can only tell you, like I came here, it was written University of Sussex, but I have to enter in. This is like a signpost, with intellect you can only know the signpost but you have to enter in, actually. Supposing I give you a chocolate alright? It’s written Cadbury’s, you read it but you have to taste it, you have to experience it, that’s the difference between the two. Just reading that mentally, knowing that mentally is something like reading a signpost. Experiencing it is like entering into it. Intellect has it’s own limitations. Like, we had to leave our car behind. It’s beyond. It’s the intellect of the intellect, you can say that. But it’s all poetry, you see what I’m saying in reality we should see what it is. So should we come to your question?
Shri Mataji asks a child what she wanted to ask.
Q: How does the Kundalini raise when you are rising it?
A: When you are raising it how does it rise? It rises just like that (Shri Mataji makes waving up motion with her hand) you have seen it, that’s it.
Now any more questions? None?
So coming to previous question alright?
I can tell you in an analogy sort of thing because you see when you have to understand something mentally, you have to use these worldly things to explain something Divine. We can say that if there is a candle which is not enlightened, it cannot get enlightened by itself but it is ready to be enlightened. If you are ready to be enlightened, any enlightened light can enlighten you. But the enlightened light doesn’t do anything except you can say at the most it is a catalyst, at the most. But, just it is ready , it’s all there, just an enlightened light comes near the one and it catches the light from that. It’s as simple as that. To give an analogy. As I told you, the seed when you put it in the Mother Earth, because it is built in, it just sprouts, it’s built in, but the process is that it has to be put in the Mother Earth. In the same way, it being a spontaneous thing and absolutely a living process, it works in a way that, supposing you have somebody who is an enlightened light. Say Ray has got enlightenment, for example, so if he wants he can enlighten you. Once you get enlightenment, you can enlighten another person. But Ray now knows what should be done to prepare first of all the candle, to get rid of the obstructions, how to enlighten and how to bring it to a full bright light. He knows all that.
So there are three stages we can say. First is you are to be awakened, the Kundalini, it has to be brought out of your head here (Shri Mataji’s hand above her head) so that the cool breeze of the holy ghost you can feel it on your head. This is the second stage where you start feeling a cool breeze also in the hand. So many people don’t feel in the beginning in the hand also on the head they do not feel, because it’s a very subtle thing, but if a Sahaja Yogi feels it that means it has started but in a very subtle way. Then you must allow it to grow more and more and to dispense all the obstructions on its way. Gradually, it becomes a steady light and then a Sahaj Yogi any Sahaj Yogi can put it in such a way that you start feeling it in your hands also. Starts flowing in your hands because from the hands of a Sahaj Yogi, that power is flowing. With that power, he can handle the situation in such a way that your hands start feeling it, flowing from your hand, flowing from here (Shri Mataji’s hand above her head).
Now, when it happens, suddenly, sometimes it happens to people in a very sudden way, in a sudden rush also because they have been seekers for ages perhaps. But then they feel, oh I feel very high, absolutely on top of the world, I’ve become a witness now, naturally, because it is such a change you see. But, that’s not the end of it because you must know how to kindle it properly, to keep it going and all that. If you don’t do that, it will again come down. You must learn how to keep it going, how to work it out. That’s the part that’s the transition part through which you have to go. Some people take at the most eight days, some people take a month or so. But once you have done it, you become your own master.
To give another analogy, a very simple one. It’s like this, when you are driving a car, there’s a break and an accelerator. This is the freedom that has been given to you first of all, to learn how to use the break and the accelerator. To take the car in a proper way, to keep it in the centre, the way it has to move. Then once you have learnt it, what happens is that you automatically become a driver. Nobody has to tell you now put the break, now do this. You know it, automatically you develop it. This is the second stage of driving.
Now the third stage is that you really become an expert in that and you drive without even knowledge that you are driving, when you are perfect. But still there is one more stage left. That there is a master sitting behind, who wants you to drive this way and that way and the master says now stop the car. He’s there. Now what happens that when you really become a Sahaja Yogi, is the point, when you become the master. You start seeing the driver within you, and the accelerator and the break, and you control as a master. That’s the point you have to reach. So these are the four stages through which you have to pass, which gradually works out just like your graduation, without much difficulty, for which you cannot pay. But you must have respect for yourself, you must know you can do it and you must have that understanding that you are a human being. The epitome of evolution, and that you have to become the Spirit. It works out. It works out very fast, these days and should work out in this University also, alright. Analogy should not be taken too far because this is Divine working and Divine working is such that we can’t understand how it works. In the beginning, if I tell you, you’ll be amazed how it works you see. You will say now Mother explain, but I won’t be able to explain so many things. It’s tremendous. The Divine power has all your communications and everything. It’s tremendous and in a split of a second it works. It is to be seen for yourself. Now the time has come to prove the existence of God, to prove the existence of his Divine power. For the first time you start feeling the subtle power when you get your realisation. You start feeling it in your hands as cool breeze of the Holy Ghost. First time, otherwise you never feel it, alright.
Should we have it now?
(Shri Mataji requests all new people to come in the front row.)
You shouldn’t mind if Sahaja Yogis just put their hands above your heads. Yogis will not touch you, but just to feel you.
Now what you have to do is just put your hands like this (open facing up), why? because these fingertips have got the representation of your centres here. These 5,6 and 7…they haven’t brought the charts but you can see later on, they will give you books to see. These are 5 centres, 6 centres and 7 centres we have, so just put your hands like this and put your feet on Mother Earth, because Mother Earth also helps us, wide apart without shoes. Everything helps us, like all the elements that are there can help us and we have to use. So now put your feet on Mother Earth like this and put your hands like this and you have to close your eyes that’s all. Just close your eyes. Now don’t try to control your attention at all. Keep your attention absolutely loose, you just don’t worry as to where to keep the attention, what to think, what to do, nothing of the kind. Just leave it. Keep your hands on your lap and sit very comfortably and it will work out. I’m sure it will work out for all of you.
(Shri Mataji places her Hamsa on the speaker for a couple of minutes.)
You should not open your eyes until I tell you.
Keep your eyes shut. Take off your glasses if possible, it will be a good idea. It helps the eyes also.
Stretch your fingers a little bit towards me like that, just stretch them, that’s all.
Shri Mataji rubs her hands and asks yogis to see their chakras. (New people’s chakras)
Shri Mataji rubs her hands and blows into them.
Right Swadishthana is too much, I think you all put them left to right, right Swadishthana is too much. All of them have right Swadishthana, right Vishuddhi and right Nabhi. Put them left to the right, that’s the best way, left to the right.
Those who have got it, you can ask them to put their hands and feel it, if possible.
Please don’t feel guilty, any one of you feel guilty that I’ve done this wrong that wrong, that’s not going to help us at all.
(yogis working on all seekers)
Forgive, forgive everyone, just forgive. What about this gentleman? Nabhi….let him put his left hand on his liver, right hand towards me. Left to the right.
Just don’t think, just enjoy. Those who have got it, just enjoy and don’t think, don’t think.
Now what about him? Heart, put your hand on your heart (Shri Mataji moves her hand raising general Kundalini and then around the heart)
Ask him if he has done TM or something? Buddhist.
Right Vishuddhi is too much. Right Vishuddhi, right liver put your hand on his right Vishuddhi and tell him to turn his head left. The whole muscle is…..better now.
(Another seeker had Ekadasha due to going to another cult so Shri Mataji asked the yogi to put his hand around the seekers Ekadasha and put him right to left. Shri Mataji generally checked on the seekers and directed the yogis accordingly.)
Shri Mataji told a seeker who had been involved with hypnotism to keep her eyes open and look at me, try to hypnotize me now. Alright now let’s see, watch me. It’s very dangerous my child, to do all these things, very dangerous. Ah! Now see it’s up there, alright. But you have to do something more alright, to get released. These are horrible things, you don’t know how you hypnotize.
Q: Isn’t Kundalini something I have to raise myself?
A: Yes she can do also, but first of all you have to become. You have not become that, how can you do? What will you do? Unless and until you become and you understand what it is alright.
Q: further questions..unclear
A: First you have to become through the help of somebody else, as I told you about the two lights alright. One is an enlightened one, the other is enlightening you. Once you become, then you can enlighten others alright. So first you have to become that, fully. So they are just helping you. You see helping your light to be there steadily, is it improving now in your hand?
A: Nothing flowing?
A: What’s the matter (Mother asks a yogi)….warm? It will work out. It has to work out first of all, you have to become that you see.
Q: what do I have to feel? I don’t know.
A: You will feel the cool breeze in the hand and cool breeze out of your head. So many of them felt. Did you have any Guru or someone? No one?
Q: Not in this sense but we do have a family Guru.
A: Who is he?
Q: We are supposed to be followers of Mahaprabhuji
A: Who is he, from Bengal?
Q: No from Mathura.
A: Mathura? What is the name?
Q: Our family Guru but Valabh Acharya
A: Valabh Acharya! Tremendous! Are you Valabh Acharyas?
Q: He is supposed to be our family guru
A: Valabh Acharya was a great realised soul you see, you should get it in no time, in the name of Valabh Acharya. Put your hands like this (open and palms up) Was he the Ashtachaap?
A: Oh tremendous! Hah! Got it? Are you feeling now?
A: You should. Valabh Acharyas are great, they are very great people. If they follow it properly.
Q: But I can’t feel it.
A: She has got cold that’s why her Vishuddhi is catching. That is Valabh Acharya’s chakra himself. Yes his chakra is catching, he was great. They are called Vaishnavas. I’m doing all his work only. This is all Vaishnav Panth. What he said, I’m doing it. It’s not only worshipping him but you have to become what he said. To be Vaishnav Janas.
Q: Then you can be Vaishnav Janas by being nice to people.
A: No no, you have to become a realised soul. You must have atma sakshatkar. Do you read him? Do you read him or not?
Q: Not so much
A: Then you read him, then you’ll understand what I’m saying nothing but what he says. You have to get atma sakshatkar.
Q: But I feel this is not the way to get it, atma sakshatkar I must get within myself.
A: Then why do you need Valabh Acharya?
Q: I don’t know but I don’t think I need some sort of community thing to start feeling in myself.
A: Whatever you think is from your own knowledge no? You don’t know anything about it? Then better not think about it because you don’t know.
Q: I’ve been taught a lot about Valabh Acharya by family etc
A: Did they get atma sakshatkar? Your family and people?
Q: I don’t know.
A: Then how do you say that? They are not authority. Those who have got atma sakshatkar are only the authority.
Q: yes but how do I know who has got atma sakshatkar?
A: At least you try to find out, we are trying to help you. We are not going to gain anything out of you are we? Then why not try?
Q: It must be more personal, it can’t be done in a public way like this
A: If you believe in Valabh Acharya, then you are telling just against him because he never believed in this kind of a thing. It was all public, because he was a great believer of Shri Krishna and not only Shri Krishna did Sahaja Yoga with gopis and raas and everything, all publicly, he didn’t do it sitting down in the rooms, alright? So this is the wrong idea you have got.
They have all got it I think except for these two. She has touched but no use. You see she is neither a full Valabh Acharya or not half way, so if you are educated enough…
Shri Mataji interrupted by same girl in public..
Q: I’m just an ordinary simple person who came here to find out
A: Yes, but what I’m saying is to find out, you must accept certain things isn’t it?
Q: Why should I accept anything?
A: No, I’m saying you have come to find out alright. If you go to a school or to university, you have to find out. Not by giving your own ideas, ‘I think’ is not there. What ‘I think’ you listen to it, isn’t it? I think whatever you think is different, that’s the point.
Q: That doesn’t prove that you’re better than me or I’m worse….
A: I may not be better than you or maybe worse or whatever it is, but you have come to listen to me na?
Q: If I would just listen to you and think about it and thought your concept….but this kind of physical exercise is not working..
A: Is it?
Q: It doesn’t bring out anything in me.
A: What I’m saying, it isn’t in you only, others have got it. You are the only one who hasn’t got it. It’s alright, if you haven’t got it, then you haven’t got it. We can’t help it also, we can’t help you. We are sorry, that’s all we can say, but they have got it and all of them have got it. You haven’t got it and he hasn’t got it either. It’s the Vishuddhi. Both of them haven’t got it that’s all. Only two persons haven’t got, what can we do about it. What about her? Is she alright?
You see if it doesn’t work out what can we do? We can’t help you.
Q: unclear comments…
A: It’s alright. That’s all, we can’t work on you. This is not possible.
Q: I don’t want anybody to work on me, I want to go myself.
A: Alright so you go ahead work it on yourself, alright. May God bless you.
Easy to be worked out. I saw an Indian, I knew what was going to happen. They are very uprooted, they neither know the Indian things or the English things. You see nothing in between. That’s the problem. Immigrants. They neither know the Indian things, I mean she’s a Valabh Acharya. Anybody, we have so many disciples from Valabh Acharya, so many have come and she doesn’t know what it is. Can you believe it? She doesn’t know what Kundalini is when Valabh Acharya has talked of nothing else but this. How can you believe she’s from Valabh Acharya? Just keeping a photograph of somebody is not that, you must know what he’s talking about. That’s what it is, they are a very uprooted people in England. Very uprooted, they don’t know Indian music, they don’t know anything. Just they wear Indian dresses that’s all.
(Shri Mataji refers to another seeker)
He’ll be alright, just he has centre heart, he’ll be alright. Do you get asthma sometimes? Just come here, sit before me, I must cure your asthma. Father issues…Shri Mataji tells him to forgive his father….and works on him.
Shri Mataji and the yogis continue to work with all the seekers in various ways.
Shri Mataji tells everybody to bring some sugar and water. I’ll vibrate it for you, it will give you a better liver and the whole system will improve with that water.
Now all of you are invited. Come and see, where is our ashram? Just tell them the address. Give them the address, talk to them. Let them come first then we will see. You are all seekers. You realise that? Seekers of ages, that’s what you have to find. That’s your right.
May God bless you all.
Sahaja Yoga A Unique Discovery August 22, 2021
MAN in his search of joy and happiness is running away from his Self, which is the real source of joy. He finds himself very ugly and boring because he doesn’t know his Self. A human being seeks joy in money or possessions, in power or human limited love, and ultimately in religion that is also outside. The problem is how to turn one’s attention inward. The inner being, which is our awareness, is energy. I call it the energy of Divine Love. All evolution and the manifestation of material energy is guided by the supreme energy of Divine Love. We do not know how powerful and thoughtful this unknown energy is. The silent working of awareness is so automatic, minute, dynamic, and precious that we take it for granted. After self realisation, this energy appears to us as silent throbbing vibrations flowing through our being. But we have been unable to achieve self realisation because we cannot fix our attention on something that lacks form (abstract Being). Instead, our attention wanders outside on forms.
Now there is a method to tap the Divine power – Sahaja Yoga. At the very outset, I have to say that the working of Sahaja Yoga is very simple, although the operation within is quite complex. For example, if you want to watch television, it is very easy. But to explain the engineering technique of a television set is very difficult and the explanation is complicated. To learn about a television you also need a qualified engineer who understands it and who can explain its working.
I will try to explain Sahaja Yoga in the simplest way, but please note that it is really complicated if you want to know it in detail. The best way to enjoy television is first to switch it on and watch. Then later you can try to understand its engineering. As a Mother I would say that I have done the cooking for you. Why should you worry about how it is done? If you are hungry you should start eating. If you are not actually hungry, but only inquisitive, what can I do? I can neither force you to eat nor make you hungry with discussions or lecturing. I leave it to your wisdom and to your freedom to feel that longing.
SOME BACKGROUND ON SAHAJA YOGA
The word ‘Sahaja’ (Saha + ja) means born with you or inborn. Whatever is inborn manifests without any effort. Hence Sahaja Yoga is the name given to my system, which is effortless, easy, and spontaneous. It is a part of Nature, you may call it life’s source-the vitality of the Divine.
To understand life, consider the case of something that is living: a germinating seed. The seed grows by itself into a tree, blooms into flowers, and then the flowers become fruit. Any human effort cannot change the process of growth from a seed into a tree. The gardener can only look after the growth of the tree. In the same way, the process of the growth of our consciousness, to further evolution, takes place effortlessly.
When a foetus is between two and three months old, in the mother’s womb, a column of rays of consciousness, emitted through the all-pervading Divine Love, pass through the developing brain to enlighten it. The shape of the human brain is prism-like. So, the column of rays falling on it gets refracted into four diverse channels corresponding to the four aspects of the nervous system.
1. Parasympathetic nervous system
2. Sympathetic nervous system (right)
3. Sympathetic nervous system (left)
4. Central nervous System (This need not be discussed as it is the link with objectivity).
The set of rays that fall on the fontanel bone (apex of the head known as Taloo) pierce in the center and pass straight into the medulla oblongata through a channel (Sushumna). This energy, after leaving a very thread-like, thin line in the medulla oblongata, settles down in three and a half coils in the triangular bone at the base of the spinal cord (Mooladhar). This coiled energy is known as Kundalini.
The subtle energy enters through the center of the brain (Sahasrara Brahmarandhra) and precipitates six more centers on its way down. The gross manifestation of this subtle energy, in the Sushumna channel of the spinal cord, is termed the Parasympathetic nervous system. The centers of Chakras are expressed as plexuses outside the spinal cord. Surprisingly, we have the same number of plexuses and sub plexuses outside, as the number of Chakras and their petals inside, the spinal cord.
Medical science knows very little about this system. Science calls it the autonomous nervous system, meaning the system that works spontaneously-on its own. For example, if we want to increase the rate of our heartbeat, we can do so by exerting ourselves (activity of the sympathetic nervous system). But we cannot directly reduce the heart (activity of the parasympathetic nervous system). The parasympathetic nervous system is a system that is like a petrol pump through which the petrol of Divine Love fills us. But when a human child is born and the umbilical cord breaks, a gap is created in the Sushumna (the subtle channel in the spinal cord). And on the gross level, one can see there is a gap between the solar plexus and the vagus nerve of the parasympathetic nervous system. This gap is known as the void in the Zen system of religion and Maya (or Bhav- Sagar) in Indian thought. Later when ego and superego bloat up like balloons and cover our brain at the apex of the left and right sympathetic nervous systems, the fontanel bone calcifies, and the all-pervading vital force of Divine Love gets cut off completely.
Then the human being identifies himself as a separate entity and the consciousness of ‘I’ (Aham) presides. This is why Man does not know His universal unconscious. His ego severs this subtle connection.
The sympathetic nervous system uses the vital energy. There are two systems-left and right. The two channels, which carry this energy, in subtle form (in the medulla oblongata), are known as Ida and Pingala respectively. The right-side system (in the right-handed person) caters to the emergencies of the active consciousness (extra efforts and emergencies). The left-side system (in medicine they say it remains dormant) caters to the subconscious mind of the psyche (libido).
Both these sympathetic-nerve systems are called the Sun and Moon channels (i.e., Surya nadi and Chandra nadi). Hatha Yoga comes from the words Ha and Tha, meaning the Sun and Moon. By this yoga you can control the activity of the sympathetic; you can use more stored energy or else completely stop the activity of the sympathetic for a short time. Just by using the stored energy you cannot achieve the eternal flow of the Divine. With control over the sympathetic you can slow the heart rate or even stop the heart for a short time. You may achieve all the physical gross symptoms of the parasympathetic. But you cannot activate the parasympathetic which is the channel for your real yoga (meeting of the Divine). With Hatha Yoga you may even control your mind. But the mind thus governed is heavily conditioned for the spiritual flight into the divine. One may keep good health and good mind to be a good citizen in a society, but that is not the only aim of life.
THE CHANNELS OF ATTENTION
Both sympathetic and parasympathetic act on the plexuses, but in opposition to each other. The parasympathetic relaxes the plexuses while the sympathetic squeezes the energy by constricting them. One fills in the vitality and the other consumes it.
There is a gap in the parasympathetic nervous system (Sushumna) but no gap in the sympathetic nervous system (at the navel). This is the hurdle that has rendered all our searching-and entry into the parasympathetic-fruitless so far. It is like three ladders, two of them touching the ground while the central one is hanging in the air. So whenever we try to rise in our consciousness, we move on to the sympathetic system.
If we pass toward the right side we enter onto the activity that goes on bloating in the balloon of ego. Thus we feel responsible and active. When this activity increases beyond limits, like a growing tree whose roots are not equally grown, the being falls to the ground.
Over activity of the sympathetic nervous system causes tension, sleeplessness, and ultimately all deadly diseases like cancer. These diseases are caused by the constricted plexuses that have been drained of their energy. If you can make the parasympathetic dominate the right side, then we can antidote the effects of over activity. Then all the diseases and the effects caused by this right side get cured automatically.
The left side sympathetic nervous system (libido) has the power to store all that is dead in us. It connects you with store houses of the subconscious mind and with the collective subconscious (Bhootlok or Paralok).
At the backside of the brain, at the apex of this channel, the super ego exists like a balloon. It becomes heavy by storing, the conditioning of the mind through libido. So if the tension is heavy it breaks the superego into many fragments. If you still overexert by conditioning, a partial vacuum forms and this sucks another dead personality from the collective subconscious (Paralok) into your superego. So in your pursuit of truth, if you take to further efforts and indulge in concentration, training of the mind, forced abstinence, forced meditation, or complete slavery to the emotional attachment of the mind, the libido with the aid of the affected superego may connect you to the collective subconscious (Paralok) where all dead souls-bad, good, or saintly-exist. These souls start manifesting through you and you get siddhis or extra sensory perceptions. Actually these are the different subtle (dead) personalities dominating us through super ego.
There is another method that may be effortlessly employed by many so called teachers. This method, by which they turn the Chakra in the direction of the libido, can put you into your subconscious. This method either makes the aspirant go into a trance or accept the complete domination of the dead spirits introduced by the teacher through the plexuses.
In the first case, the Sadhaka feels relaxed, his mind is switched off. But after a few years of practice, he realises his weakness. He cannot face reality and takes to heavy use of drugs. In the second case, the aspirant becomes a complete slave of the teacher and starts giving away all material possessions to the teacher without understanding the logic behind it. These teachers never explain the technique they have employed, nor do they give their powers to anybody else. In short, all efforts in the name of religion, or the mishandling of Kundalini by so called realised people, can only activate the sympathetic nervous system (Ida and Pingala). These activities cannot make any progress toward bringing about the play of parasympathetic (Sushumna).
All mesmerize powers such as materialization power (enslaving masses for money or fame), visionary powers (Drishti Siddha), speech powers (Vani Siddha), curing powers, transcendental feelings (powers of switching off the mind), separation of body, and many other powers, are very ordinarily found among those who practice the control of spirits (Pret siddhi or Smashan Vidya). All such powers can be proved to be the powers of the dead in any one of our experimental Centers.
These are not Divine powers because the Divine has no interest in these gross subjects. It is interested only in the miracle of the inner being and its further manifestation to bring about human evolution. Thus those who indulge and use their attention (Chitta) on such ‘siddhis’ and those who run after such gross miracles find it difficult to follow Sahaja Yoga.
We have noted that when such people confront Sahaja Yoga, they start trembling and shaking like lunatics. If with very great difficulty such a person reaches the state of Self-realisation, he completely loses all interest in such powers and in their exhibition. He is freed of all extra dead personalities who dominated him.
There is no need to pass through the subconscious strata to jump the unconscious. The subconscious is an end by itself and one gets lost after entering its realms. These strata are placed vertically. The only direct way is through the parasympathetic (through Sushumna)-the central path that takes you to the Divine (the universal unconscious)-through Sahaja Yoga.
It is very dangerous to use the powers of the subconscious which may become uncontrollable and torture the practitioner and Sadhaka. Those who are temporarily benefited may suffer irreparable loss to body, mind, or grace.
THE PROMISED GOAL
All religions have promised inner silence when you reach the state of Self-realisation-the inner miracle of the subtle awareness and not gross jugglery. The Bhagavad Gita says that you become the witness (Sakshi Swarup) of the play of the Divine. Many modern thinkers are also talking about the new awareness. This has been described as ‘thoughtless awareness’ which results in collective consciousness. We hear of many prophesies made by ancient and modern writers about the evolution of a new race of super-human beings of unique awareness. These are no longer empty words. Through the discovery of Sahaja Yoga it is possible to achieve the transformation of the human consciousness to the higher planes promised by various seers.
The subject of Kundalini is no longer a matter of book knowledge. Now you can see, with the naked eye, the breathing of the Kundalini at the Mooladhara. You can feel the different Chakras in the spinal cord with your fingers. Formerly, bridging the gap in the Sushumna was the insurmountable problem. But it is being discovered that this gap can be filled with the vibrating power of Divine Love. The Kundalini rises like a majestic mother and breaks the apex of the brain (Brahmarandhra) without giving the slightest trouble to the child (Sadhaka). It happens in a split second, in the short spell between two successive thoughts. Of course, if the aspirant (Sadhaka) is diseased or his Chakras are constricted by over activity of the sympathetic nervous system, the Kundalini, being the Mother of every individual and the embodiment of love, knowledge, and beauty, knows how to reveal Her love beautifully and to give rebirth to Her child without causing any hurt. There are many descriptions about Kundalini warning us against the dangers and perils of the taming of Kundalini. Also many books describe various gross or frightful experiences of the Kundalini awakening.
Actually this is caused because Kundalini cannot rise without Sahaja Yoga, i.e., if someone, who is not Self-realised, tries to awaken Her, the Kundalini does not leave Her seat and, without the proper invitation, the Kundalini becomes adamant and angry. Thus the sympathetic gets into activity. When She is accused of sex, She sends heat waves over the sympathetic nervous system which causes the constriction or blockage of the plexuses and the path of the Kundalini is completely broken down.
Sometimes one gets into funny gesticulations or loses complete awareness of the outside. Moreover with mishandling of Chakras and Kundalini due to the ignorance or greed of the teacher, the chance of realisation for the aspirant can become very poor and sometimes impossible.
The mind that is very much conditioned, or the mind that is the slave of self-indulgence or of egoistic actions and thoughts, is also a very slow conveyance for Sahaja Yoga. Even if you read too much about the de-conditioning of the mind, you may get only further conditioned. If you try to de-condition by efforts, you can become conditioned much worse than what you were. De-conditioning is only possible through Divine Love. The main ‘condition’ of Sahaja Yoga is that your will and freedom are always respected.
In Sahaja Yoga the person is fully aware and alert and receives inner silence and experience without doing any unnatural movements. He sits in a completely easy pose throughout or he also may lie down (Sahajasana or Shavasana). The breathing is normal or less than normal.
Religions are also the expressions and experiments of realised souls-the seers. They also talk about the inner being, second birth, and about realization. In the beginning, in India, they tried to take the attention inside by introducing symbols that they saw of this unconscious, universal being within. This gave rise to pantheism and the aspirant’s attention got stuck to symbols (Sakar) and to rituals which killed the main objective.
So the other type of experiments of talking only about the abstract (Nirakar) gave rise to many other religions which ended up as dogmas or ‘isms.’ The reason is obvious. Talking about the flower or the honey cannot take you to the honey but can only create dogmatic ‘isms’ in the mind. You have to be a bee to reach there, i.e., you have to be reborn. This has to happen within to take you inside. It is too great an achievement and unbelievable, but I feel the search of ages has brought great results.
THE END OF THE PATH
The mind, with a child-like innocence achieves very quick results. Whatever may be the loads of the mind, if the longing is honest and earnest, sooner or later, the aspirant can get Self-realisation. After reaching this state the vibrations start emitting from the extremities. These are described by Adi Shankaracharya in his work ‘Ananda Lahari.’ These vibrations are the waves of Divine Love that can fill also other persons’ inner being and give them the same experience of Self-realisation. This is how the chain reaction starts. One light enlightens another.
The physical manifestations are as follows:
The pupils of the eyes become dilated (Parasympathetic action). The face becomes radiant, the body becomes light, all tension is completely removed. The rising of the Kundalini can be seen by others and felt by the aspirant. First the throbbing is clearly felt at Sahasrara (apex of the brain) and when it stops, complete silence is felt within and in all awareness. The flow of grace is felt coming down, cooling the whole being. As the attention moves to the subtle, gross attachments drop out. A person gradually loses identification with falsehood and artificiality.
In matter, he sees beauty and not its possession value. In knowledge, he identifies himself with the Truth and is not afraid to profess, nor does he indulge in the double standards of life. His flow of love becomes spontaneous, generous, without any tinge of attachment, possession or any return. The person becomes ageless-a hollow personality.
Now let us see what happens inside.
The attention of the consciousness moves to the inner being (Kundalini). As the thread (Sutra) of a necklace is passing through every bead of the necklace, the inner consciousness (Kundalini) is also passing through every human being.
As soon as our attention moves to our inner consciousness we can move on to everybody’s Kundalini. One starts feeling the Kundalini, its nature, its position in other persons. Collective consciousness is thus established. Now you become a universal being. After some days you cannot say who the other person is. The power of love is so great and dynamic that with the movement of your fingers you can move the Kundalini of thousands. It becomes child’s play.
This is how the en masse evolution of human beings will take place. These are the signs of the advent of the Golden age of Truth (Satya Yoga).
Let us forget whatever hardships we have suffered in our search in the past. It does not matter if some could not find it before this. You have to open your mind and understand that though the discovery is unprecedented, it does not make any seeker or predecessor small. If some experiments are made, it does not matter if, ultimately, we have found out the way. It is a collective achievement. Perhaps in the chaos of Kali Yoga it was to happen and many of us, who have been earnestly searching in many lives, are reborn to have their promises fulfilled by the Divine. Maybe we were our own predecessors.
On the tree of life there might have been very few flowers but now the blossom time has come. Their fragrance of longing has collectively materialized the manifestation of Sahaja Yoga. Many are going to jump into the realm of thoughtless awareness where you get introduced to yourself and start identifying with your universal nature.
Those who deserve will get the throne of their inner being which rules the skies of peace, and the oceans of divine love and supreme knowledge within, which is limitless (Anand).
What is samadhi? April 20, 2020
“Sama-dhi”, “samadhi” means, first is the nirvichara samadhi [thoughtless awareness]. First is nirvichara samadhi that you achieve and the Kundalini just comes out of your head. “Sama-dhi” means, the “dhi” means the “buddhi” [intellect in a large sense]. And when it has got enlightenment it means Samadhi.

Leucoderma-Vitiligo March 7, 2020
Peanut oil can be very damaging
When I was living in Dehra Dun, North India, one of the new Sahaja Yogis there had a daughter who had leukoderma, also called vitilego, a harmless condition where the skin becomes discolored and gets unsightly white patches. I asked Shri Mataji about it and She said it was caused and/or made much worse by the use of peanut oil in cooking. Sure enough, the lady told me she always used peanut oil for cooking. On another occasion Shri Mataji told us to avoid peanuts as they are very bad for the liver.
