“There’s one God, how can there be so many religions? And just fighting in the name of religion is stupidity, because they don’t know. If there’s innate religion within you, the innate, which is so much encompassing the whole world. Now see Sufis are Muslims, what they write? They write nothing but Sahaja Yoga. What Christ wrote was Sahaja Yoga, what Mohammed Sahib wrote was Sahaja Yoga. They didn’t write all these nonsensical things that people are doing.
But they don’t read even Koran, you’d be surprised. They don’t even read Bible in proper way, or some people just go on reading words, words, words, words. How can you get into it? You must read within the lines. Yet they don’t do, and then they start fighting. It’s so absurd, the whole thing is, that next generation will not believe in any one of these organizations based on religion,
I can tell you. But they might take to something also very bad. So the best thing is to get to the roots of it and find out. So many things are said to explain, according to times also, but how many people really know the roots of religion? They are all one, coming from the same tree, there’s nothing to fight. Have you ever seen one branch of the tree fighting with another?
It’s as absurd as that, to Me I can’t understand. It’s not possible. For us to fight with each other, for what are we fighting? We are part and parcel of one whole. How can we fight, it’s very unnatural, which is very dangerous also. As I said, a tree, on a tree there are so many leaves and they are all different. You won’t find another leaf repeating itself. But they never fight with each other do they? Why should we, the human beings fight, in the name of God?
They make money in the name of God. They fight in the name of God. They do all kinds of things in the name of God, now what do you say what sort of a God it is? How much we have brought glory to the name of God? All right? So we have to know that innate religion within us, which is in everyone.
All of us have that innate religion, we may call it by any name. It’s a pure, global religion we can call it. Which is within all of us, it’s a fact, I’m telling you a fact. Otherwise you start fighting for this, fighting for that, then what will happen?”

“But some of you are so much used to these mundane things and regular things that we personally all of us feel that if it is going to be God, he has to be just like us, there should be an organization, there should be a chairman, there should be a vice-chairman, there has to be a secretary, and all these organizations must be there, and there only if he go, then it is allright, we are safe, we are secure, because we are used to it.
But God’s laws and God’s domain is very different from what we understand. We have never felt his love, we have been always working, all organized things because we were unsecure about something. Every institution is for some kind of an insecurity.
Because we are insecured, we think something is going to fall upon us, something horrible is going to happen, that is how we form a thing. Otherwise our children may be spoilt or our old people may die, or something may happen, we form an organization. This is not believing in God.”

Experience your self-realization
“So I have to tell you that this is within you, you get your realization, the actualization, and then you have to become. You can not organize God-Almighty. You can not have an organization. You can have so many living beings who are existing like leaves on a living tree, nourished by the same sap, but you can not organize it in a human way. You can not have memberships. There can not be any force. There can not be any compulsion. In your freedom you have to enjoy your Self because you are the source of glory and joy and peace.”
Shri Mataji Nirmala Devi, Public Program, Paris (France), 2 November 1987
