You have the power within August 15, 2013
“Now in Sahaja Yoga you have to know that you have the power within yourself. It is there, it exists there, and it is to be just awakened in some people. It takes time to be awakened, in thousands I have seen it takes no time, the only thing that I would suggest is to keep your mind open not to become obstinate about things. If you are an obstinate person the Kundalini is even an greater obstinate thing, do not be obstinate, just keep yourself open, do not argue it out by argument or by thinking about it. The Kundalini is not going to be awakened, on the contrary, when the Kundalini is awakened your thoughts settle down to such an extent that you feel there is no thought coming to you from your subconscious or from your supraconscious so try to keep yourself absolutely open and don’t worry even if your vibrations are not fine.
The principle is that light is light and the room is room, the light has nothing to do with the room, only thing when the light is enlightened, it enlightens the room, the room has something to do with the light but the light has nothing to do with the room. Whether the room is there or not, light exists, in the same way we must understand the relationship with the Atman and our body, our spirit and our this body, mind and our ego, superego.
So many of you must have done lot of tapasyas and lot of things which were not really wanted thinking that you have done such a lot. You have been to so many places, you have done so much teerath yatra, you have been to so many pilgrimages and those pilgrimages and all these places, you think according to you should be blissful to you, but actually while going there you did not know how to get the bliss from those temple and those places which are holy actually in nature but are surrounded by people who are actually negative, because of that, that mixture was there, sometimes instead of getting the bliss you get the headaches.”

You cannot press it May 27, 2013
“When your heart is open, first of all you forgive yourself and you forgive others, and you don’t see to your individual chakras and bother about others in the way that you’re concern about one individual ,but you look at the whole as a whole. You will then start talking about Sahaja Yoga – ‘How is Sahaja Yoga spreading, how many people are getting realization, how much responsibility I have done.’ ‘I should have done’ means not ego out of it but ‘I should do, what work can I do here, what mistakes the Sahaja Yogis have committed that it has not worked out, what is the situation, how I can help?’
This kind of a, you see sort of as if, like you really become a light and you want to give light. So what’s wrong with the lamp which is not giving light? But you don’t think about yourself, you think as a body – the whole thing. This is the first thing is to open your heart. As soon as you open your heart you will widen yourself, you’ll grow. For that you need not condemn yourself but opening your heart is – look at this ocean how it is touching all the shores but it is in itself, in its own maryadas.
If you try to press the ocean from any side it will show the other side. You cannot press it. It has its height, it had its limitations, it stays in its own limitations. So open hearted person is like this, it touches every shore but keeps to itself, its own maryadas. So this understanding if it comes, the expansion also is in such a manner that you do not go into individual corners and individual places, but you keep to yourself and you touch everyone.”
Shri Mataji Nirmala Devi – 27 May 1989, Istanbul, Turkey.

The knowledge is useless without yoga…
Sahaja yoga has to accept you…”

Only through causeless mercy… February 4, 2012
nāyamātmā pravacanena labhyo
na medhayā na bahunā śrutena |
yamevaiṣa vṛṇute tena labhya-
stasyaiṣa ātmā vivṛṇute tanūṁ svām || 3||
You cannot have the knowledge of the Supreme Soul by
means of reasoning, erudition, or studying of the Vedas;
Only through causeless mercy does He reveal His own
person unto him whom He does accept as His own.
