Shri Yogeshwara Puja. Chelsham Road, London (UK), 15 August 1982.

Today is a great day for all of us to be jubilant that the primordial being Himself incarnated on this earth as Shri Krishna.
So many aspects of His being have been described in so many of my lectures to you all; but the greatest and greatest of all the aspects of this primordial being was that He was the Yogeshwara. He was the” God of Yoga” – Yogeshwara. He was the Lord of our Union with the Divine. Without His permission and without His sanction we cannot be Sahaja Yogis. He was Yogeshwara and a real Yogi is a person who gets this Yogeshwara awakened within him. The word “Yoga” that we understand is the union of our attention with the Divine. But still we do not realise the implications – what does it mean? What should have happened to us?

Of course, you get powers. As soon as you become the spirit, you get powers. One of the powers you get is of “collective consciousness”, that is also the gift of Shri Krishna and that you start feeling the collectivity. Your ego and superego are sucked in, so you get rid of your karmas and your conditionings and a new sprouting of the new life of the new age starts. But still what is the speciality, the greatness of Yogeshwara? Because He is Ishwara for you. He is the Ishwara of all the Yogis and what is His capacity, what is His nature that for Him everything is a play – “Leela”.

For Shri Rama it was not a play. For Him life was a platform on which he had to demonstrate how to lead a very dharmic life as “Maryada Purushottama”. But Shri Krishna came up to show, that He is the “Leeladhara” – the one who plays the Leela, the play.
The whole thing is a play, the whole universe is a play. All that is created by Adi Shakti, all these three gunas is nothing but a play. And that is what He manifested in His own incarnation. But still what is Yogeshwara? “Leeladhara” is the one for whom this whole universe is a play, that He is at the axis, and for the whole periphery is nothing but a play. Because everything is false, execpt for your spirit everything is false. It`s all a joke going on, you can say, a drama going on, nothing so serious. Spirit is the only truth within us, the rest is all untruth. There cannot be many types of “truth”. In Sanskrit language there is only truth or untruth, satja or asatya, there are no ten words for truth.

So when this happens, when this great happening takes place within you, when you become one with the spirit you get powers, without even your maturity reaching that stage, your understanding reaching that stage and your heart opening out. You get the powers, all right, to begin with. So that you have faith with open understanding. If you have faith with experience of it – so it starts on. When you start using your powers you see it is manifesting, you are sometimes amazed, how you raise Kundalini of people, how you tie them up, how you give them realisation, how you cure people. You are amazed, how it has happened. So we can say it is all built within you, which has started manifesting. But there is so much more that has to still manifest, which has to establish and make you grow.

One of the very important points is the Yogeshwara and that point we must understand that unless and until you follow the path of Yogeshwara, you cannot establish yourself fully. So Krishna has said that: “Sarvam dharma na pari tajya name kam sharanam pracha”. You give up all your relationships, dharma is relation- ship; like your sister, your brother – you see these are dharmas, like “stridharma” – a woman’s job.
Then we can say also there is “rastra dharma”. Today is the day of India’s freedom. So we have rastra dharma, we are patriotic people. Patriotism to your own country is rastra dharma. Then you have got “samaj dharma”, that is duty towards your society, is samaj dharma. Then you have got “pati dharma”, that is husbands’ duties, wives’ duties. Everybodies duties are called as dharmas because this is what you have to do. You are duty bound, they form your dharmas. But He said, “give up all these dharmas, give up all the duties, just surrender yourself fully to Me” – sarwa dharma na pari tajya name kam sharanam pracha.
Because you have become now the collective being, now you have become one with Him, now He looks after your dharmas, He looks after your relationships, He glances them, He purifies them, so you just surrender yourself to Him fully. He said it to Shri Arjuna only, not to everyone. He didn’t say to everyone, they didn’t deserve it. Or He didn’t think it proper to say to them, but I think you are proper people to know. So I’m telling you that forget every other duty to every other thing but do your duty to your collective being, to your collectivity.

But He is Yogeshwara. That’s the main point. And to do duty to Him first and foremost thing is you have to develop that purity of a Yogeshwara. For Him sublimation was not needed, He was sublime. He was the source of sublimation. He did not need sublimations from the baser instincts of human beings. He did not need anything to do, to be done to Himself to raise Himself out of the maya as they call it. Specially in the West, as you know, we have created a hell for ourselves, a real hell. All kinds of perverted ideas are within us. For the Yogeshwara this is nothing but maya, absolutely filth, it never comes into Him that such things are possible. They are shocking.
On His birthday I would say if today is His birthday and if He was born as He was at that time, He would have gone back immediately. He would have said, no sorry, I’ve nothing to do, I’ve had enough. And that too, if He had met the Western culture, He would have been shocked, oh God, no, nothing doing. I’m not coming here. Despite the times when He was born, where there was dharma, there were people who understood what was right, what was wrong, when none of these nonsensical things were there, He came as Yogeshwara, pure.
The story about Him is that one day His wives wanted to go. To Him what was wives? Nothing, just look at it. To Him no sin can be attached. He married because He had to marry His five principles or the five elements. So He made them into women and married them. He had to marry 16.000 women because He had to have 16.000 powers and He had to channelise them through some bodies. So they came as women. To Him it was not a relationship of a wife, but a pure relationship. To Him sex had no existence at all. He was beyond it. So no question of temptations and perversions; it is out of question.

The story is that once His five wives wanted to go and pray to some saint who had come – a great saint. But he really stayed across the river, so they wanted to go and worship him and they found a very good time when they could go and see him. So when they went near the river they said it is in spate we cannot cross it, it’s not the time that you can cross it. So they felt it was very inauspicious, if they did not go and that was such an auspicious time. They wanted to go at that time and worship this guru.
So they went to Krishna and said: “Now, how can we cross, the river is in spate?” He said: “Really? Doesn’t matter. You go and tell the river – that is the river Tapi, they were crossing – he said go and tell the river that if we have a husband who is Shri Krishna, who is “Yogeshwara”, that means who never indulges into any sex activity.
Yogeshwara means a person who never indulges into any sex relationships. That’s not possible. One cannot think of such a thing, means though He indulges, He never indulges, though He was in it, still He was not there. Like a lotus. If He has not indulged into any such action, it was only possible for Him nobody else. That’s why He is an incarnation, He is not a human being. Only incarnations can do it. If some human being starts saying that I’m Shri Krishna, so I am doing this and I am doing that – you see, there are very bombastic ones, you must have heard about them. They do not become, is only an incarnation can do it. That means Yogeshwara is the one who had incarnated.
So they went and told the river: “If He is the Yogeshwara, then please you subside.” And she went down. So they went to the other side, did the puja to the guru and they came back. Again the river was in spate and they could not cross. So they went to the guru. You see ,the sign of a good guru or a real guru, is an incarnated guru, and they said: “See, we cannot cross, the river is in spate.” So then he said: “Really, how did you come?” They said: “Shri Krishna asked us, that if I am the Yogeshwara, it will go down, you ask the question. So he said: “All right, now you go and ask the question, that if I, the mukta, that means if I have eaten all the food you’ve given me, but I’ve not enjoyed it, I’ve not indulged into it, then let the river subside.” Then they went and told the river, I mean they could not believe it because they had fed him, that: “Whatever food we offered to him, if he has not eaten any food, then you subside”. And the river subsided!
So the moral of the whole thing is that your ideal in this respect, is Shri Krishna. Not that you think you are the ideal of the rest. This is the big mistake Sahaja Yogis do. They think immeadiately they have become now Shri Krishna. Or they think they have become something greater or that there is an ideal that they have imbibbed within themselves. It is not so.

There is one thing one has to know, that that is the ideal you have to reach. And your eyes should be towards that ideal and the movements should be towards that. Before that, if you fall into any such things like perversions and nonsensical sexual things and all that, you must know that you are falling down very badly. It’s a posession that is working on you. That’s an ideal – they are incarnations. You are not incarnations, nor can you become incarnations. But they are the light, which are enlightening your path, on which you are walking. They are taking you to the realm where they are the Kings and they are the Lords.

He is the Ishwara – He is your Ishwara. You are not Ishwaras. But you are at least the Yogis. We have to be the yogis first, then He is our Ishwara, now otherwise He doesn’t want to rule you. So what we have to do, is to become the Yogis first. And one of the signs of a yogi is, that he is in his sex life extremely pure. Absolute purity must exist and after some time, one should get beyond. Your relationships with other people, whether it is your sister or a brother or any other woman or any other man, there should be complete purity. And this is extremely important.
Now in the countries like India, people are extremely corrupt, very corrupt, extremely corrupt. You can give them 5 rupies and you can buy anybody there. It’s really corrupt, moneywise. But people are not so immoral, they know it is immorality, I mean they know, if they do immoral thing they know it is not moral.
In the West the immorality has become a general rule. For them the word morality should vanish now, I mean there doesn’t exist anything like morality. Do everything whatever you like, people don’t think of immorality. They don’t want to talk of it, it is Victorian. And if somebody says that one should be moral, they start thinking he is a hypocrite. They cannot think that there can be any connection between human being and morality in a genuine way. This is a big problem here. It’s the biggest problem we have.

Now corruption is something you can avoid. Because if you are not corrupt, it is all right, you can be. But immorality is such a thing that, if you live in an immoral world, it has an effect on everyone. For example, a moral woman is walking on the road and there is a man full of lust and all that looking at her. In any way she looses her chastity. She doesn’t mean to attract him or anything, she doesn’t want to loose her chastity, but the way he is looking at her, you see, though her simple methods are there, she may be responsible in a distant way to ruin his chastity, his morality. Even a little child, who is a simple, innocent child when there is a dirty man with dirty eyes, he can have very dirty feelings for the child. So, though of course that person himself is dirty and all that, we cannot say the child is not affected. But in a way, that becomes an object, a sort of a …. as you call it, a thing which makes another person even lower than what he is.
Even an ordinary picture which has nothing to do in this place there, any funny thing, can give some dirty feelings. Because these days I have seen so many symbols have started, which to my eye I don’t even see when there is anything wrong in it, that to my eye I can’t see because I’m too innocent, my eyes can’t see there is anything wrong, but if somebody, who is an expert on these things, will immediately say, oh look at this! I mean really it is impossible to understand, how the human mind has really woven the yarns all around and made these patterns to ruin themselves and ruin others.

To worship Yogeshwara, we must know that our relationships with everyone in this world have to be pure. He played lots of things in His life-time. The time when He came, the whole country was absolutely drowned into fanatic ideas about religion. If Freud was there, he would have said, oh this is all nonsense. What’s wrong? Go ahead. Krishna did not do that. He wanted to break all the nonsensical shakels of traditions and shakels of false fanaticism. But He did it in a very beautiful manner keeping the relationships absolutely pure.

Now people ask questions, Mother, was He married to Radha? He is eternally married to Her, doesn’t matter. But He actually performed the marriage, just the day He was born. He was brought by His father across the river and put down on the bank of the river, when Shri Brahmadeva himself came on this earth. That’s why He wears a yellow thing, always, as a blessing from Brahmadeva to cover His lower part, lower than the waist with a cloth. That’s the sign that’s why He always wears yellow.
He himself came, made Him into man and married Him to Radha. Then again He became a child, just to appear to be a child. Somebody may appear to be a child. To some of you, I appear to you to be a sixteen year old girl as you say, but I’m not. I may be according to some sixty years of age, but I’m not. My age is eternal. I can’t say what age is Mine. It could be two years old or it could be absolutely ageless, it could be anything.
So in His whole life, whatever He did, He did with the purity of understanding. So Radhaji was married to Him first. And afterwards when He came as a child, when He was a child, He did all kinds of pranks and things, was not sitting like this and seriously telling about things, but with a little bit here and there, He tried to improve their chakras and raise their Kundalinis. Of course, realisation was not possible in a game. You cannot do it. Supposing I just play about with you, you cannot get your realisation because at the Sahastrara stage you have to completely recognise.

It has to be a “game of serenity”. Of course, you can just raise your hands and give realisation to them. But you have to bring them to a serene level. You just sit and you say, alright, you just play about, it would be all finished. You have to sit down and meditate, you have to do it. So one could not say that all the time if you are playing, if you are just singing songs, or if you are in a very happy mood, a mirthful mood, then it’s the end of Sahaja Yoga. It’s not so. It’s a serious matter.
So He did not give them realisation, but He reduced the tension on their minds of this so called dharma and its shackels of fanaticism and He made it loose and He wanted them to understand that dharma is not going to enslave. You have to rise above the dharma and become dharma itself. But Yogeshwara is to be worshipped with pure heart. In this atmosphere it is difficult, I know. You just go out and you see a horrid thing there. You open any page of the magazine, there is another horrid thing. Anywhere at the advertising, I turn another page and I find a discotheque nonsense going on there. What can you do, you just cannot help it. All this is all, I mean, if you look at it, how gross, dirty, filthy the whole thing is. To add to problems, psychologists have come forward. They themselves are affected by their methods and everything, they are so posessed and their sense about morality is absolutely in complete confusion, no doubt about it.

You know Freud, what happened to him? He was having relations with his mother. He could not even understand, I mean imagine what a adharmi he must be, horrible wretched fellow, he did not even have that purity to understand relationship with a mother. I mean, imagine. It is such a clear cut background of this man which shows, how wrong he must have been. Because what was in him, such filth, such dirt, that he could not even look at his mother clearly. Must have been all mud in his eyes or I don’t know what he must have been, to see things like that.

You are shaking with my vibrations already. Now when we think of Him as Yogeshwara, that means we are Yogis and He is our Ishwara. Ishwara is to be praised – … – you have to praise, you have to praise Him for his quality as Yogeshwara because He is your Ishwara. So you have to praise Him. Now what praise can we give Him. Today He is born. What should we do on such a great occasion when He is born? We have to decide that He is our Ishwara. He is the Ishwara aspect and if He is our Ishwara, then we have to cleanse our attitude towards sex, toward the gross way of life that we have developed. You just shun it and throw it away. Absolutely. There cannot be any compromise on that. Otherwise you cannot be a yogi, you cannot be a yogi. You may become very powerful, maybe for the time being because I play with you. You get ideas that you are very powerful and all that. But that’s not true.

As My name is Nirmala, as My name is purity, you have to be pure yogis. Nobody says you should not marry, nobody says you should not have proper sex relationships with you wives, that’s not true. But that’s one thing people may avoid and spoil it. But the other thing which is the most important is, your attention to be pure of sex attractions. Any kind. Your attention should never go to anything like that. You see, to Me, I mean I’m now supposed to be an old lady, I don’t see things which normally people see. This is something surprising. You see, I see something and I don’t know what’s happening and usually they laugh at me, in the house, they don’t understand, how I did’n see the point. But I don’t understand these jokes because the attention never goes into these dirty things, never goes into these things. I can’t see till somebody tells me that this is this. They have to explain it ten times.
So all these sophisticated methods of nonsense and the filth and the dirt that we are accumulating here, please wash off your hands of that. That is one thing which will not be tolerated in Sahaja Yoga, to every Sahaja Yogi I must tell. Itself sex cannot be enjoyed, if you live like this. You cannot. You don’t enjoy sex at all in this country. None of them.

Only in a country, where people are innocent, you can enjoy. If you were enjoying, you would not run from one woman to another woman, you would not run from man to woman and man to man and then to all donkeys and do all those things. It is impossible that you could be a yogi with all these dirty ideas. And then you cannot mature, even a normal person will not mature. In India a person who is about 40 years, he becomes a mature father. You leave any girls with him, anybody with him, it will not even get into his head that there something could exist between them. Once you are married it should not. I mean I have seen my two sons-in law, they never get these ideas in their heads. So try to put your attention into proper things because your Ishwara is Yogeshwara.
Now the other side of Shri Krishna people do not know. It’s a play, all right. But He is Samhara-shakti. He is the power of destruction. It’s very good He comes with everything to protect us. But He also has got Sudarshan chakra. Sudarshan, “su” means auspicious, “darshan” is vision. He gives us auspicious visions, you see. You try tricks with Him, that goes round your neck and then you have auspicious darshans of yourself, that you are hanging in the air somewhere.

So Shri Krishnas methods on one side is that He is a “Leelamai”, He is compassionate, He stands by His baktas, He comes on this earth to revive your dharma. If the dharma goes down, He comes to uplift it. “Yada yadahi dharmascha” wherever there is the decline of dharma. But dharma doesn’t mean only corruption, it doesn’t mean only honesty and dishonesty, basically it means mooladhara. That is the beginning of the end.
And He comes to – “sa sahg sthapana artaya” – again to establish into the holy state. Again, He comes on this earth to raise human beings to that level. This is what He does. So if we are Sahaja Yogis, we are part and parcel of His being. We are instrumented into His working. So we have to establish dharma, but the one, who has no dharma withing himself, what dharma is he going to establish anywhere. He has come on this earth to establish the dharma in its holy aspect. Not like roman catholic church or another pentacostal church or these Hindu religious activities or these Hindu temples or the islamic state. But dharma in its pure state we have to establish. But if there is no dharma within us, how are we going to establish?

So He comes on this earth every time to establish dharma at Vishnu level, but at Shri Krishna level, He comes at Yogeshwara. This is the point many people have not even thought of. For Vishnu they did not say Yogeshwara, that is He is the Ishwara of Yogis, as Ganesha is the Ishwara of the Ganas. You see, Ganapati looks after the Ganas, and He is our Ishwara. That is we have to have Him as our ideal. With the understanding that today is the day – in the night about 12 o’clock, now it must be about 12 o’clock in India also, about that, so it matches – He was born at this time in the night, because it was real night symbolically, under horrible circumstances He came. At a time then, when His own birth was very dangerously placed, He was saved and then in His very childhood He killed Rakshasas. But all this He did because He was an incarnation. Nobody is asking you to go and kill Rakshasas.
In Sahaja Yoga did I ask you to go and kill some Rakshasas? On the contrary I`m just saying keep yourself protected. There was a Rakshasin who came, her name was Putana and she wanted to put poison through her brest and she took the child and started nursing. He was a little baby. And when He started sucking her brest, she came out in her true form and she died.

Of course, He was after all, He was an incarnation. Can anyone of us do that? I mean the Sahaja Yogis. Then as a child He was very mischievous. He ate some clay, I think whether He ate it or not, His mother douted, she got very angry and she said : “Open your mouth, I would like to see, did you eat that?” And He opened the mouth – she saw a complete universe moving in His throat – because this is Vishuddi chakra. She saw because she could see, she had powers to see. Not everybody can see that. Those who have powers can see. We don’t even have the powers as much as she had to see the universe.

So one has to understand that first as Sahaja Yogis we get the powers much before we have past really the test of Sahaja Yogis. Just the other way round it is in the university. They will first give you the degree, the certificate and then you will get a job, maybe you don’t get a job also. Here you get the job first of all, you get all the powers you are paid for, but the degree is still not sure. Anybody walks about as Sahaja Yogi, next day I find him coming out with something else. There are certified Sahaja Yogis, I have seen. They become afterwards certified something else, God knows how. So this is the thing of Sahaja Yoga that you can become a Sahaja Yogi even without having the real certificate. It’s definitely so. And the certificate is given, as you know, by Lord Jesus Christ. He doesn’t care. He doesn’t give certificate easily. That’s why He is very, very strict. He is not going to give in. He is extremely strict as far as the Sahaja Yogis are concerned, He is not going to give you certificates, He is going to judge you. And what is His basic nature, it is innocence. He is going to judge you on your innocence. If you are a superego you can say, Oh I got posessed by a bhoot, you see and the bhoot did this. So He will say: “Alright you go to the bhoot for the certificate not to me.”

And what were you doing, you were witnessing it like Shri Krishna. With all these things happening, I get a big promise sometimes, that, “Mother alright, now we are not going to quarrel, there are not going to be any problems, you rest assure, we’ll all live in harmony.” And suddenly I find that somebody is figthing for a bathroom or for a soap or something like that. That’s not for a Sahaja Yogi to behave.
First of all you have to be a satisfied person, a person of great dignitiy and forbearing, otherwise what are you going to bear? “I love him very much, but he should not have taken my towel.” For small, small things if you go on insisting, be sure you are not a yogi as yet. If you are fighting for things, then you are not a Sahaja Yogi at all. Nothing of these things matters, I never say anything about anything, do I? That I must have this, I must have that, how did you prepare this, though it is sometimes really wrong and unprotocolish. I never say, why did you bring these bananas, they are no good, I’m not going to eat. Did I say so? I mean, even the flowers you use may not be auspicious, I know certain flowers should not be used for puja. But I’m not opening my mouth. If I have to tell you, I just tell you because you have to know it for your own good, not for my good.

So, on a day like this, which is a day of great joy to all the world and happiness, you should know one thing, that when Christ was born, He was born in a very humble place, but when Krishna was born, He was born in the most horrifying circumstances. It is the same in the case of Sahaja Yogis today. It’s a thing of great joy and jubilation, no doubt, that He came and gave us His Vishuddi power, but we must understand that we are born in a very precarious time.
I have been saying this so many times. There is not only one Kamsa there. So many are there. There is a bifg fight going on, in that you people are here in charge. You are the ones employed by God, you are the ones, who have been given this great work, you have powers. Like Shri Krishna, when He was crossing, as a child was put in a basket and the father was carrying the child in the basket and when His feet touched the river Yamuna, the river went down. Because she was in spate, she went down. In the same way, you too have all these powers. Krishna has given you all the powers. Though they will be really known to you, when only Lord Jesus Christ accepts you as Sahaja Yogis. And that’s important because you have to be innocent. Purity must be brought in. Last time on this great day we had 16 marriages. They came out well most of them. Not all, but most of them were very good and I am really very happy that such good couples came on that day. It was very auspicious.
And marriage gives you a sense of purity. And that’s why our marriage is important in Sahaja Yoga. But that’s not the last word, like this is not a hunting ground for everyone, I’m finding you this husband or I’m finding you that husband. That must be stopped completely. Leave it to Sahaja. You are not to search out your wives in Sahaja Yoga, no, not at all, nor husbands. Leave it. If you have done something like that, then you will be harmed.

Don’t do any searching or any thing. A time will come, when you will find that I will myself tell you to marry this person, people who just take out people and try courting. That’s not needed in Sahaja Yoga, no courting is needed. You see, we have got so many cases, where the marriage was decided like that, they married, they are very happily married. Then are there people who had courting, this thing, selections, nominations and elections and everything and after that you find within 2 days they are out for divorce. In Sahaja Yoga it is spontaneous and instanstaneous. You don’t have to do all these things with all these celebrations what have you achieved? It’s just spontaneous. So you don’t have to worry. You don’t have to think. You don’t have to say, that “Oh Mother, I have to find a girl for …” You don’t! Leave it me, it’s my headache. But once you are married in Sahaja Yoga, you must know what it means. And both of you must work it out properly and if it is for the good of everyone, it should be good for everyone.
This is what it is. And I would say that on this day, let us take one vow: To decide that we will be worshipping Yogeshwara. You have to worship Him. Means our relationships about these things has to be cleaned. We should not get involved with this, nothing is important. It’s just like having your food or to be with your wife – the need of the body. But you don’t eat on the roads, do you? You don’t eat from the dirty plates, do you? You want to have a clean plate. You want to have a plate, which you have used yourself, your own plate, that should be clean. If you could have a cleaner plate, you would like to have, If you can get a silver plate, you would like. Even a golden plate is even better. In the same way, we should also have a very pure understanding that it is the need of the body, the body which can be very subtle. So let us not just go on shopping for it everywhere, looking out, oh this is that, this one that one, then discard. It has to come to you specially. And all great things happen suddenly always. The more delibrations you will have, the worse it will be. So don’t form ideas, don’t plan about it, it will happen, it is not so important. That will give you a lot of purity. Your ego will be perfect.

I know of someone, whom nobody wanted to marry. And when I suggested someone, who agreed with great difficulty, she said, I don’t want to marry. It’s funny. It is very funny the way our ego is working out. Because when we are looking at another person for marriage or anything, we are not thinking of Yogeshwara. We don’t think that it is Yogeshwara, who will do everything for us, we are thinking, we have to do it. So we go ahead and spoil our attention completely. “Sarwa dharma na pari tajya name kam sharanam pracha.” In this part of your decision, if you can leave it to God, it will be better. I tell you, if you can do that, you have crossed your ego half way through. At least 50% of ego is used in this. In the West specially. In India this question doesn’t arrise much. Because the parents can’t decide here, nobody can decide, you have to decide yourself. It’s a big responsibility and a big thing for you. So 50% of your ego problem will be finished, I tell you, once you just give up this responsibilty of choosing a bride or a bridegroom for yourself. Just forget it.

Such a waste of energy, I tell you. When I see people, young people, doing all these things I wish they could understand the value of their lives, the estime of their lives. Their Ishwara is Shri Krishna. He is not Ishwara of everyone. Only of yogis. Anybody else who tries to say “Hare Rama, Hare Krishna” will get throat cancer. Anybody who tries to call Him who is not a yogi gets a problem in the throat, you know. So He is only available to you, He is only your Ishwara. He manifests only for you. He is your own. He won’t act for any Dick, Tom and Harry. Maybe you might be a prime minister, you may be a queen or king, it makes no difference to him. To him only a yogi, only a yogi can call him. Only a yogi can ask for his help. He is not bothered about anybody else. And if a yogi recommends, then only He can look after someone. Otherwise He will not bother about him. So He is actually your own king, who is always there, looking after you. When you call Him, He comes with all His powers to support you. But you have to be a yogi. If you are not a yogi, which is of course certified by Lord Jesus Christ, then Krishna has nothing to do with you.

So before the entry to Shri Krishna, though He is not the one who is going to judge your innocence, in the door resides Lord Jesus Christ. When you get in, then it’s all right. But to get in, also is difficult because He is always throwing you out. Shri Krishna has said, that “You will be the …”, to Jesus, He said, “You will be the “Adhara”, the support of the universe.” Means the innocence is the support. If that innocence is not established in you, then Shri Krishna cannot help you. He is helpless then. Because you don’t become a yogi and so He is not your Ishwara any more. When we say, Mother the Agnya Chakra is here and He is here, all right. When you cross your Agnya Chakra that means He is sitting here and the Virata is sitting here. (Anm.: ca. 5 cm oberhalb des Agnya Chakras, wo sich der Haaransatz befindet) So unless and until you pass your Agnya Chakra properly, you can’t get to Virat. And Yogeshwara is the Virat. That is the aspect we have to worship, we have to worship!

Worshipping doesn’t mean that you become that person. You worship Me, you don’t become Me. What does happen, when you worship? You surrender all that is not light by Me in the fire, in the water, outside, in the elements you throw them away. And you bring to Me your heart. That is what is worshipping. In the same way we have to worship the aspect of Shri Krishna in me, which is Yogeshwara. I am Yogeshwara. Things do not come into My head at all, I don’t see things like that. I don’t know what this temptation is, what attraction is, I just don’t understand. On the contrary these things repell me, repell absolutely, I vomit. Even to hear these things, I don’t want to open My ears, My ears become deaf. I can’t hear this, I can’t understand any dirty jokes. I have no brain for this, My brains refuse to understand. I become a dumb person, absolutely, deaf and dumb. People have written books and books on these things, I don’t know what they must be writing. What is that to write things.
So today we have to know that our personal life has to be extremely clean. We face ourselves every moment and find out within ourselves, are we really worshipping Yogeshwara within ourselves who reside within us. Let us develop that purity. Then innocence will be established in our eyes. We’ll be innocent, the eyes will speak of innocence. What’s the use of having eyes, which are all the time shifting, you don’t know where they are going, wobbly eyes, you see, like this, like this. You can’t trust your eyes at all. But the eyes, which are innocent, receive nothing, they just give. They just give. Innocence is very penetrating, very purifying, very soothing and very beautiful. We have to become beautiful people.

Today I said all these things because I’m sometimes disturbed the way people don’t understand that purity of sex life is so important to Sahaja Yoga, specially in the West. People don’t understand. For Indians this lecture has no meaning, they will think, why Mother is wasting Her energy so much. Because they don’t understand. But to Me it is very important here. Whatever I have seen and heard and see all around. I think today’s message should be of Yogeshwara. Let us worship Yogeshwara today with our heart. When you worship Me today, it should be the worship of Yogeshwara and nothing else.

May God bless you.
