“Simple things I will tell you. They asked me: “Mother, what do you think of starting a Vishwa Nirmala Dharma [Universal Pure Religion] in Melbourne?” I said: “Alright.” I didn’t know it was going to be an association, [that] there was going to be an election and all; nothing. Vishwa Nirmala Dharma is everywhere. But they don’t have any association – nothing. It is just a kind of a society which is just spreading Vishwa Nirmala Dharma [the innate pure religion within us].
There is no sort of any organization about it. We only have Trusts. And we don’t want to have any electioneering or all that. Again, if some wrong type of people get in, then Sahaja Yoga will be ousted completely. So you can only have Trusts. And if you want to do something else, you can form it separately, but it should not be ‘Vishwa Nirmala Dharma’ or ‘Sahaja Yoga’ – nothing doing! Because I said ‘Yes’ – that doesn’t mean that you should go that far with forming ‘this’, ‘that’, association and all that. It is news to Me!
It will definitely grow, no doubt. But do not try to organize it. You cannot organize. Once you start organizing, then the growth can be stunted. Like you have seen bonsai. Bonsai when they cut it and organize it, becomes a small tree. But I haven’t seen any tree which grows; that if it is organized grows more. At the most you can nourish it, at the most you can water it, at the most you can see its needs. But you just cannot make it grow more.
All organizations cut the growth. In the beginning it may look that by organizing it, it has increased. Even religions like Christianity, Islam, Buddhism, Hinduism, etc., when organized and grow artificially are empty and hollow. We really want substantial people, substantial dharma – innate within ourselves. We don’t have to take to these artificial things.”
