“You don’t have to pay for it, you don’t have to exert for it, you don’t have to do anything, but you have to desire. This is the point I am trying to make, that if you do not desire from your heart, then God is not going to fall at your feet, now please desire for Me, is He? It’s a simple thing like that, and if you people understand that you have to really desire it, because it’s such a vicious circle I must tell you, that this Kundalini is not here the picture, the Kundalini is the pure desire within you. Is the desire which is not yet manifested, it is not yet awakened in the sense that it is acting, but it has not acted. So, if so, how much important it is that you should have the desire to be one with the Divine, to be in Yoga, to be one with your Spirit.”
Shri Mataji Nirmala Devi – 6 June 1983, extract from public programme, Holborn Library, London, UK.
