The original sin November 29, 2017
“But the leader has to come. Somebody has to lead human beings. If you do not get the leader, they do not venture into it. Normally, they venture into all darkness, never onto the right side. This is what is the original sin, which also we should understand. In the Christian mythology they talk of the original sin.
The original sin was committed because of the schema, style the human beings are, that God created human beings like animals, that’s symbolic. Now He gave them freedom. But innocence was there, and He told them: “Keep in innocence. There is no need to destroy your innocence, and try to know something. If you are innocent, obedient and if you remain as you are, you’ll become the Spirit. But in freedom you must live. You must have freedom. Because without freedom, how can you get the supreme freedom? So you have freedom.” He gave them freedom. The animals are not. They are pashu. They are in the pash. Pash means they are in the bondage. They are not free. Human beings are free. If you want you can be a scorpion, you can be a lion, you can be an elephant, you can be anything. So this freedom was given, and was told that: “Don’t eat the fruit of knowledge.”
Now this fruit of knowledge was what? This knowledge is “avidya”, that we know of, like creating atomic bomb. We drifted onto this. There was no need for us to know. And this, when we started knowing, where are we? At the brink of destruction. By knowing how this world is made and what are the things and about the science and all that, we reached the point where we thought we can now use this, and we are using it for our destruction.
But the idea was different. First, it was to be innocent, to become the Spirit and then to know about these things so that you have the wisdom. So the whole thing failed at that point. That’s why it’s the original sin people talk of. That’s the original sin. If we had waited, we had become Spirits and then we had seen to what all knowledge is. You are different. Then you use it for the purpose of the betterment.”

There’s one God, how can there be so many religions? July 3, 2016
“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 She—the Spirit, the Paraclete. May 17, 2015

We have to awaken Christ within ourselves April 10, 2015
” If you have to really come to resurrection then you must awaken Christ within yourself in the Agnya Chakra. If you cannot do it, all this enactment, even I have seen some people in Spain, they say, are enacting as crucified. I mean, this is mockery going on in this world. We are living with pretensions and falsehoods. All these things are going to take us nowhere. We have to face ourselves, we have to awaken Christ within ourselves. We have to bow to Him in full understanding of how great He is.
On the contrary, we always bend towards people who are pretentious, who make a circus out of Him. It’s amockery going on everywhere. This carrying the cross or any drama, I mean, it was such a miserable thing. And to enact it – I don’t know why people want to do that, I just can’t understand, I can’t bear it.
But I mean if you have feelings, you can see within yourself. It cannot be a ceremony, a ritual – to be sacrificed and to be resurrected. It’s the actuality, is the becoming, is not any drama. And people want to see a drama like that and be satisfied.
For us Sahaja Yogis it is important to understand the significance of Christ’s life.”

Rationality is limited – get vibratory awareness March 2, 2015
“This is beyond thinking, it is beyond thought. Because you think to your rationality which is a limited vehicle; you have to be triggered into the unlimited. You cannot think it out and go there; it has to work out beyond thinking.
Now if supposing Christ appears before you, how will you recognize? Is there a way? Supposing God appears before you, how will you recognize? Is there a way? Only way would be when you get this vibratory awareness, you can feel it, people can feel it.”

Speaking in tongues February 1, 2015
“We do not know when the disciples of Christ got their realization through the Holy Ghost. They got…. they felt the cool breeze of the Holy Ghost and they started talking in a different language. They didn’t speak in some language like Latin or Greek or anything. They spoke the language of the chakras and they started moving their hands so people thought they were mad…. But you will see now that all the Divine laws can be managed through your fingers if you get your realization, because your fingers become active and emit cool vibrations or cool breeze of the Holy Ghost…. So, there is nothing wrong in that. But those who were not realized people could not understand that and that’s why they called them mad….. That’s not the situation today. Now, please put your hand there on that center…”
