The creation of Original Sin May 15, 2016


Till the animal stage there was no ego, and then the ego started growing. We can say that’s the beginning of the original sin: that “I am something. I am doing something. It’s I who can do it”. All right?

So God said, “Let’s see. Let’s see their little courage, and let them decide.”

So the plans were changed; one had to think now that we should get incarnations on this earth to help these people, to guide them, to put them into balance, to put them into proper understanding of dharma, so they keep to that balance. But every time this “I” refused to accept the balance.

And this “I” goes very far from reality. Today also, when we come to Sahaja Yoga, I see people, they don’t grow very fast. Because of this “I” they have questions, they have doubts, they have problems. Because of this original sin people cannot grow very fast.

That, “I am the one, I am free. Why that? Why this?” Who are you to ask questions? Who has made you? Have you made yourself?

What did you do to become a human being? Why this kind of egoistical behavior towards God?

“Why God has made us? Why this thing?”

Who are you to ask any question? But it is so, the questioning goes on, and such people are very dangerous for Sahaja Yoga. If they have to come for puja, I’m worried, not because anything will happen to puja, but we may lose them completely. Such egoistical stupid people get lost. As a mother I have simple compassion and love for them, and I feel sad that they could have been saved. But this questioning mind of theirs can drown them. This is the basic original sin that human beings have created.

ADAM, EVE AND TREE OF LIFE April 7, 2008


The traditional interpretation of the story of Adam and Eve is that they disobeyed God by eating the forbidden apple, which is the origin of Original Sin.

We need to remember that there were two trees in the Garden:

“In the middle of the garden were the tree of life and the tree of the knowledge of good and evil.”…

And the LORD God commanded the man, “You are free to eat from any tree in the garden;  but you must not eat from the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, for when you eat of it you will surely die.”

Again the big question is why Adam and Eve choose the tree of the knowledge of good and evil. I would choose the tree of life.

Adam and Eve ate the apple, and when God realized this, He said:

“The man has now become like one of us, knowing good and evil. He must not be allowed to reach out his hand and take also from the tree of life and eat, and live forever.”

It is obvious that after eating from the tree of the knowledge of good and evil Adam and Eve realize that they are naked. This is definitely one step forward in their evolution. Acquiring the knowledge of good and evil means evolving from animals to human beings. Becoming human was both a blessing and a curse. There was much to be gained from it–as the Serpent said, “your eyes shall be opened”.

How does the story of Adam and Eve ends? Are we still evolving? What is the next step?

Remember what GOD said: “He must not be allowed to reach out his hand and take also from the tree of life and eat, and live forever.”

Can we try to taste THE TREE OF LIFE and live forever as promised by Christ?
