When unconscious became conscious this is Samadhi

Spiritual hunger June 27, 2015


“Now the main thing about Void one has to remember – there is no rationality. It’s the hunger inside the stomach and hunger has no rationality; if it is hungry it will eat. It has to eat, no rationality can satisfy it : if you are hungry, you’re hungry. And when you have spiritual hunger, the same hunger becomes subtler and subtler ultimately it becomes the spiritual.

First the hunger starts of, say, food, of primitive things. Then hunger for sex life, hunger for women, hunger for men, then for power, then for money. Then the hunger for spirituality starts.

When that hunger is concentrated and starts rising without any rationality about it, you don’t know why you are seeking. Like Buddha he had everything, he had a wife and his father had provided him with everything. Still his heart was seeking. Why was he seeking ? It’s the hunger that is not rationality, that isn’t explained.

And then this hunger starts and the way we quench that hunger is Dharma. The way we keep it intact is the Dharma.”

~ Shree Mataji Nirmala Devi,  London 1978
