I have seen the last dissolution of the whole Universe June 12, 2008


“I am the least bothered about anything whatsoever. What is such a disaster you have seen in your life? — just tell Me. I have seen the last dissolution of the whole Universe. What can I fear anymore?” – Shri Mataji ( Tivoli, Italy — September 11, 1983)

 

Shri Mataji and Gagangiri Maharaj meeting May 28, 2008


Beautiful story from Shriniwas:

“Today I would like to share a brief summary of Shree Mataji`s tryst with a great realized ascetic, “Gagangiri Maharaj” from Maharashtra, India.

My Dad was with Shree Mataji during this time and I would like to enumerate whatever he experienced there..

“This meeting happened sometime in 70s .. Gagangiri Maharaj was a great realized ascetic who stayed near a place called “Khopoli” in Maharshtra which is on the way between Mumbai (Bombay)-Pune. His ashram is located on a small hill top where he use to stay with his disciples. Once Shree Mataji expressed the desire to meet him and SHE along with few Yogis went to meet HIM. Shree Mataji finally met him and following is some of the excerpts from their conversation:

Gagangiri Maharaj: Mother, I knew that you would come this particular day to give me self-realization. I have been waiting for this time since thousands of years.
By severe penances and austere life I have been able to clean every chakra form Mooladhar to Agnya. But, I knew that finally you would help me to jump from Agnya to Saharara to obtain beatitude and bliss. When you were climbing the hill, I could see you in your original form of Adi-Shakti accompanied by all deities dancing in the procession.

( then he offered Shree Mataji a saree.. He then looked at all the yogis who were there with HER)

Gagangiri Maharaj: Mother, why are you giving so much to all these people. Do they understand the real worth of it? Do they understand what they have achieved so easily?
It took me thousands of years to get my realization. I had to go through severe penances and austere life.

Shree Mataji: You are a GURU and cannot be a MOTHER. I am the MOTHER and cannot be a GURU like you. A mother always gives everything to her children selflessly.
A GURU will expect that his disciple go through all the hardships before he gets the blessings but a mother cannot do that. So, now you have achieved such a state, then why don’t you help me in my work ?

Gagangiri Maharaj: As you say Mother. ….I was not lucky enough to have a mother like you, before…

Gagangiri Maharaj: ( to all Yogis) You all are very lucky to get so much from MOTHER herself.. So understand the worth of it and grow.

 Unfortunately, this great soul (Gagangiri Maharaj) passed away recently on 4thFeb 2008

Well on the next morning, Shree Mataji woke up early and was sitting on the swing outside the Ashram.My Dad also had woken up by then and he observed that 2 disc like objects were revolving around Shree Mataji for almost 30-45 minutes. She then said “You can Leave” and both of them soared high in the sky with tremendous speed and disappeared. My dad then asked MOTHER about this and SHE told him that sometimes, “Hanumana and Bhairava” want to be with me. Those 2 discs which you observed were them.”

 

Law of Polarity May 15, 2008


A second characteristic of Krita Yuga is that whenever there is a falling away from dharma, the inner Divine laws of Righteousness which are innate and which regulate both human existence, the whole worldly structure, as well as the manifestation of the cosmos – will arise as a result, with a corresponding, compensatory effect.

This is called the “Law of Polarity” or in Sanskrit “Karma Phalam” (the fruits of action), which means in practical terms, that whatever you have done, you will get the fruits of those actions: “As ye sow, so shall ye reap”. So in this Yuga [Age], all persons will get their Karma Phalam. If they have led their lives in accordance with the universal and eternal laws of being (dharma), they will enjoy an existence which is harmonious and fulfilling.

But on the other hand, whatever wrongs they have done, i.e., whenever they have fallen out of the central path of dharma, either individually or collectively, they will have to pay for that in this life time.” – (Shri Mataji Nirmala Devi – Meta Modern Era, Chapter 1, Modernism and Rationality )

 

TORSION FIELDS April 17, 2008


Torsion fields have been studied by several groups of Russian scientists for at least three decades and most of that time in secret. What are torsion fields? The torsion field and its emanations are subtle energy fields. They are separate and distinct from classical Electric, Magnetic, and Gravity fields. Generators for these fields can be shielded against electro-magnetic fields and the torsion field still manifests itself through such shielding. Torsion fields can be generated, detected, switched on and off (such as for communication purposes), and are a distinct type of energy field heretofore not included in today’s classical physics.

Torsion field can travel at velocities at least as high as 109 times the speed of light.

 

“Like Einstein has said that there’s an area beyond our human mind which is called as Torsion Area. And all the truths, absolute truths are known when you enter into that Torsion Area. This Torsion Area has different names. For example in Sanskrit it’s called as Paramchaitanya. In the Koran it’s called as Ruh. In every religion it has been described. But as you know religion also what it has taken in many different shapes in the hands of human beings. Human beings have a speciality of spoiling everything.”Shri Mataji

 

“YOGA IS TO STILL THE PATTERNING OF CONSCIOUSNESS” April 15, 2008


I.2  Yogas- citta-vrtti-nirodhah

yogah = process of yoking; union

citta = consciousness

vrtti = patterning, turnings, movements

nirodhah = stilling, cessation, restriction

Yoga is to still the patterning of consciousness.

May be this is the most popular sentence from Patanjali’s Yoga Sutras. How many of us can really experience this state? Are we looking to achieve this state? Believe me, I had a chance to be there and it is beyond description.

I am not so satisfied from Sanskrit translation as well. Please find below some clarifications from Shri Mataji Nirmala Devi.

“’Chit’ is the attention, the ‘Consciousness’.  You are just now conscious and listening to me.  Every minute, you are conscious.  But every moment is becoming dead into the past.  Every moment is coming from the future to the present.  But you are conscious at this moment and are listening to me”.

“I do not know what is the word for ‘Vritti’ in English language.  It is not ‘aptitude’ but a person gets ‘prone’ to, or his Attention is dragged to – I do not know if there is a word in the English language for Vritti. Vritti means a temperament by which you are drawn to.  Whatever is your temperament, it acts like that.

For example, if you see a man walking, say, blindly, he cannot see things.

One person may get angry with that person.

Another may have pity for that person.

Third man may come forward to help him out.

Is the vritti, is the temperament you have developed through your three Gunas.

That is why this Attention becomes identified with you, and when you are identified with this, your vritti, your temperament then you are still in a misidentified area.”

“But for a Sahaja Yogi the most important thing is : ‘you must save your attention’. Is called as Chitta Nirodha. Nirodha : saving of your attention. ” Where is it going, It’s such a precious thing for me. Were is it running” ?

Then how do you save your attention ? Is through concentration. Concentrate. Try to concentrate. Don’t allow your attention to wobble. Gradually you will develop concentration”.

I hope with these clarifications it will be easy for you to comprehend the message of Maharishi Patanjali.

MOON April 6, 2008


SHRI MATAJI – Gudi Padwa Talk

“Here (in India) every festival is based on position of the moon.  And that’s why the dates keep changing (every year) and a festival occurs on different dates in different years.  The reason why we give importance to the moon and keep all our dates according to its position is that the moon has more influence on human beings than the sun. Along with the moon, other planets also have influence on us.  That is the reason we observe festivals as per the lunar calendar.”

“Whatever it is, we must think as to why we give so much importance to the moon.  The reason is that we should remain vigilant about the effects that the moon has on us.  The biggest effect that the moon has on us is because our left side is based on it.  Very few people know about it.  This left side of the body which is recognised and accepted so much in our country, has psychological effects on us. 

Effects on the left side are psychological and not intellectual, and we cannot control it.  Whatever psychological problems we have, cannot be controlled.  We cannot control the effect of the moon on us.  That’s why the position of the moon is seen and lunar dates are observed.  For example if it is a no-moon night (Amavasya) or a full moon night (Poornima) then the problem of a person, having epilepsy or any other psychological problem, will aggravate further.  One can immediately see very clearly that such a person has been affected by the full moon or no-moon. 

That’s why we are very much sensitive towards the position of moon and date of lunar month.  In our country detailed calculations are done on this, to know about the exact timings and position of the eclipse.  All this shows that in our country a lot of care is taken about the effects of lunar calendar and so much has been discussed and written about it.”

 

HOW TO SAVE OUR ATTENTION?


SHRI MATAJI ON RAJA JANAKA’S STATE

“You know King Janaka was called ‘Vidheha’. Great sage Narada asked him one day, Revered Sir, how are you called as Vidheha, you live in this world, how can you be a Vidheha?

Raja Janaka said, “this is very simple. I will tell you about it in the evening. Now, please do this little job for me. There is milk in this bowl. You take this bowl & come along with me. Please see that not a single drop of milk is spilled on the Earth. Then only I will tell you why I am called ‘Vidheha’. Narada took the bowl & followed Janaka everywhere. He had to be very careful because the bowl was such that by the slightest movement the milk might have spilled. He got very tired. When they returned in the evening, Narada asked ‘Please tell me now, I am quite fed up with carrying this bowl & following you everywhere at the same time.

Raja Janaka said, “First of all tell me what you have seen?’

Narada, “Nothing except this bowl of milk so that it won’t spill.”

Raja Janaka, “Didn’t you see, there was a big procession in my honour, then there was a court wherein, there was programme of dancing? Didn’t you see anything?

Narada said, “No sir, I have not seen anything”

Raja Janaka, “My child, likewise with Me, I also see nothing. All the time, I just watch my attention. Where is it going? Making sure that it won’t spill away like the milk.”

“This sort of attention one has to develop. ‘CHITTA NIROD’. Nirod means the saving of your attention, so your attention should not be on saving money & worldly things and all that, but attention itself must be saved. As you watch your money, as you watch your road, when you drive, as you watch your child, when it is growing, as you watch the beauty of your wife, or the care of your husband, all put together you watch yourself; your attention.”

 

WHAT IS THE REASON FOR HAVING DREAMS? March 29, 2008


dreaming.jpg

Public Lecture (New Delhi ’83)

Audience member from public lecture: What is the reason for having dreams?
Shri Mataji: The reason for dreams is that when you are sleeping your attention moves either to the supraconscious side or to the subconscious side, your attention starts moving. And then you start seeing things which are connected with your subconscious or your collective subconscious and all this thing. And you may go onto supraconscious side where you see your future and all this thing. But the reason why you get dreams actually is that the unconscious, which is within you, or you can say the Kundalini or your Atma is trying to guide you to the right path. And how does it guide you to the right path? Is through dreams. But these are misunderstood.
How do you understand these dreams because you are so confused? First you go deep into yourself and you touch the unconscious – sushupti stithi. But from there you come out. And then when you are coming out, you touch your subconscious or maybe supraconscious. So whatever anubhuti you had, or whatever experience you had, of the depths of the sushupti gets confused and you don’t know what you dreamt, and you don’t understand and you forget it. But those who are realized souls go to their sushupti and see exactly what they have to know.
Like many people in Bombay when I came, they didn’t know I was coming but they were at the airport because they got the dream. So at this sushupti level, at the deep level you get the communication with God if you know how to go in and come out fully aware. But if you get confused with supraconscious or subconscious areas or if you start, your chitta i (Attention) is not so clear-cut, then there can be a big confusion.
 

PATANGALI’S YOGA SUTRAS END GITA ABOUT KUNDALINI March 25, 2008


matte6264413.jpg

Public Lecture (New Delhi ’83)

Question – In spite of tremendous stress on Kundalini by Your Holiness, it is hard for me to reconcile myself with the fact that there is not the slightest reference of Kundalini in the authoritative guides on yoga – I mean Patangali’s Yoga Sutras or Gita. Why?
Shri Mataji: Yes it is surprising that people will say … He says that in Yoga Sutras of Patangali it is not written about Kundalini and also about Gita it’s not written about Kundalini. Is a fact because, you see, it was a secret science. It was kept a secret science, in my first lecture only I said, till the Sixth Century.
In the Sixth Century, Adi Shankaracharya for the first time opened his mouth about it. It was a secret science with very great gurus like Janaka gave Realization to Nachiketa.And in the same way Shri Krishna did not talk about it, because you see even when Markandeya talked about it, people did not know what he was talking. They never thought him to be a sensible man.
Then later on as the people became into two compartments, one on the right, one on the left side, some started worshipping God in a devotion and in a bhakti way, the another started doing yagya havanadi things. So whatever was required for these two types of things evolved and that’s what developed. The central side of evolution was kept a secret. And even at the time of Shri Krishna it was not mentioned, not a word about this thing was mentioned because this is an internal happening, it’s antar yoga. It was not described, but Shri Krishna hinted at it, that you have to have your yoga. But how, He did not say because that was not the time. He was the one who laid the seeds. That’s why He is called as Krishna. Krishna means “krishi,” the one who has done krishi. So this one was laid, the sprouting had to come. Today it was to be told.
So I am telling you about it. Everything is not told at the same time. Same in Sahaja Yoga. We don’t tell you everything at this state. About Agnya Chakra I have told you something, but not all. Gradually when you will be so aware, I will tell you. It has to be seen how far to be said at what time. And that’s what was needed at that time was told by Krishna. So Gita is the one which only tells you that this will happen. But Gyaneshwara, who was born after the sixth century, in Gyaneshwari has written about Kundalini clearly. Because, though Gita it is not written, but he said, “this is how it is done.” Gynaeshawara has written. Though he has written, it’s not, it’s the Gita translated into a common language, he put also the knowledge of Kundalini. Because at that time, it was to be told. Before that, it was not to be told.
Shankaracharya in the sixth century did it, then Gyaneshwara did it, then Nanaka did it, then Kabira did it. All these people did it. Not only, but even Mohammed Sahib in a way has talked about it – about the Sahaja Yoga and resurrection time. They all started talking about the resurrection time much later as they started seeing people getting it. Because to talk too much about the future is dangerous.
That time Shri Krishna was placed with Arjuna when they were at the war, and that time He had to talk about the problems of hinsa, ahinsa and those ideas which we have about – wrong ideas we have. And that’s how He talked on that subject. Whatever was the subject, He talked on that and He told him how to become one with God … not how…that when you become one with God, you become a stithapragya. He gave the idea as to what will happen to you. But how it will happen He did not say. That was left to me to explain. They can’t do everything, I have to do something, isn’t it? Because if He had said how, then they would have said, “Give me Realization.” But they were not prepared for realization.
