Shri Adi Kundalini puja. Mödling (Austria), 19 June 1990.
Today we have assembled here to do the Kundalini Puja. Once we had done it in India long, long time back and this is the first time we are doing this puja here in Austria.
This is the puja of the Adi Kundalini, is the Primordial Kundalini. [speaks aside] You must have seen in the hand of Athena, who is the Primordial Mother, there is a power which is a snake in the left hand. [speaks aside] And the Primordial Mother has one of Her powers, which we can say, as the Primordial Kundalini, is a part of Her. Of course, She’s beyond that, but She is reflected in human being as the Kundalini.
Now one has to know that to create an incarnation, lot of work has gone into. So many things had to be [???]. One had to have the vision that, where a human being is created, how an incarnation can help him. At different levels, we had incarnations on this Earth and they were sent with a particular idea that they should achieve a particular type of ascent in that particular time. They were all part and parcel of the Primordial Mother and they all had a very powerful Kundalini built within them. But the incarnation of this Kali Yuga is very complicated. First it had to be worked out what will be the situation in which this incarnation would be born and what sort of encounters this incarnation would have.
So the major propelling force, you can say, the major work had to be done in the incarnation to create a very strong spinal cord, so that it could bear the Primordial Kundalini, which is responsible for doing this great work of transformation.
Now this Kundalini, She’s the primordial one, has all the powers built in of redemption, of ascent, but apart from that, to be born in this Kali Yuga, one had to know what sort of people one has to face and then how to bring them round to the understanding of Sahaja Yoga and to the understanding that they have to have their ascent.
So there are many sources of energies and knowledge, which are to be used because it’s a very complicated world in which the Primordial Kundalini had to work. It was not a simple thing like people coming to Himalayas. They were already clean people, very desirous of getting Realization. They didn’t have all kind of inhibitions and conditions and ego. They were completely surrendered and after a great amount of penance, they would arrive. So to raise their Kundalini was not such a complete thing.
So not only that, the Primordial Kundalini had to give ascent to people, but She had to also understand what sort of people are there –
Why don’t you take out the child? What’s the matter? I think open the windows. Perhaps children are feeling hot. Normally children don’t cry unless and until there is some problem. You have to be careful.
So all the aspects of human beings on the random movement of human beings, all their adventures and enterprises, they are to be understood by the incarnation, to communicate with the Primordial Kundalini. And also such a person had to be a Mahamaya so that she or he, whatever it is, has to behave in such a manner that nobody should feel frightened or should feel something distant. So this Mahamaya swarupa had to be taken.
So the Adi Shakti’s work is doublefold. First is to know about the present, the way the people are, their cultures, their styles, their conditionings, their egos, everything, how they behave. Though the Adi Shakti is unaware of all these things because She doesn’t know this is human adventure. She doesn’t know how far they have gone and what do they see, what do they dream, what are their ideas. And the another work is of the Kundalini. So She’s divided in two – two parts. One is the Kundalini and another is the Sahasrara.
So the Sahasrara has to supply all the material, all the information to the Kundalini and then the Kundalini has to work out. Of course, as you know very well, there are deities who are built in everywhere in the Sahasrara, also the whole body and they are the ones who communicate whatever has to be communicated properly, but it’s a very complicated work, extremely complicated.
So this Primordial Kundalini acts for the collective, [???], as well as for the individual. Now supposing you go to a place like, say, an airport. So you start absorbing the heat of the people. Then the perspiration starts and you have to see all this work is done through your body. Or, at the same time, if there’s somebody, individual who has some problem also can be absorbed and can be corrected.
So it acts on both the levels – one on the individual and one on the collective, that is to say samashti and rashti. And simultaneously this can act. Now the attention, which is the power of the brain, we can say the power of Sahasrara, also has to be extremely deep, alert and intelligible.
All this work had to be done to create this incarnation of Primordial Kundalini and the Sahasrara. So many mechanisms were used. So many types of wiring were done, as you do it, like as you try to fix your computer to make it the most efficient one, in the same way, a lot of work was to be put in. And first you had to watch human beings for two thousand years, how they have been behaving, what they have been doing and now what sort of human beings are there. Every nation had different conditionings. Every individual had different conditioning. It’s very difficult work and one had to have really the ocean of patience, inexhaustible ocean of patience. And that’s how this work of Sahaja Yoga, the whole stage was set in. As you have put the stage here, you have done a marvellous work and it looks very nice, beautiful, everything is there, but the stage for Sahaja Yoga was very complicated one, extremely complicated because the work was so dynamic, so subtle, at the same time so loving, so affectionate.
All the intelligence of the Divine was used to manufacture this incarnation and to get a human Realization was also very difficult. You had to be born like an ordinary human being, to live in your family like an ordinary person. You had to find out through entering into everybody’s Kundalini what was wrong with them, what was the mistake, how you could use the permutations and combinations of their chakras to give them en masse Realization. It was a tremendous task and that had to be done with the Sahasrara. But it has been achieved. All these great plans of the Divine and everybody’s detailed working are and bringing everything to a par excellence level was really tremendous. I Myself surprised at Myself and amazed how I could really get so many people in Sahaja Yoga. I didn’t expect it, but it has worked tremendously because of the cooperation of human beings also, otherwise it would not have been possible.
Now when you do these pujas and all those things, you please those deities, make them happy because they have done so much work. Is your gratitude for them that they have worked so hard with such diligence, with such precisions that today we have been able to achieve this great drama of Sahaja Yoga. Those who are Sahaja Yogis perhaps do not realize what is the great work done in the background and how much time it took to build up the whole thing, to bring it to this level of perfection.
So the Primordial Kundalini, which is reflected in you as your Kundalini, also is of the same nature and it works in the same way. It rises, gives you Self Realization, gives you the powers, but after all one has to know it is a reflection and a reflection to make it truthful, real. You have to look at reality first, how the real one, the real Kundalini, the real Primordial One, how it acts, how it works. If you start thinking about My Kundalini only, immediately you will become silent, no question. You cannot think, just you become silent. Just think of any one of My chakras and your chakras will be all right. But you have to have that depth. You have to have that much protocol. You have to have that much right. Just it will act. Don’t have to do anything. Just you have to think of My chakras. Just think about My Kundalini. That’s sufficient. But you have to develop that surrendering situation. Even now there are Sahaja Yogis who doubt. They have seen the word. They have seen everything, still they doubt and they [???] to people who are on the periphery. And there are Sahaja Yogis who are still sticking on to many things. They cannot change. They haven’t got yet that courage to change themselves. I don’t say that you have to change anything outside, but a time comes you might have to change also, so you should be prepared. How much we are courageous, that is to be weighed and to be found out. Unless and until you have full courage, you cannot establish Sahaja Yoga in a quick way. When you are using your own Kundalini, you have to know that the Kundalini that is your own has problems. She Herself has gone through various ages and stages and She Herself is sometimes very much hurt, very unhappy and very weak and then She cannot rise.
So if you want that this Kundalini that is your own, that is your own mother has to give you all the nourishment and everything, you must learn, first of all, foremost thing, how to surrender to reality.
So if you learn how to surrender to the Primordial Kundalini, then your Kundalini’s immediately strengthened. It’s like this, supposing you have a stone and you try to put anything on it, it won’t reflect. Then you improve the wood, still nothing will be reflected. Then you paint it, some reflection will come. Then you have the glass. The glass won’t reflect. But if you use some mercury and make it a mirror, it will reflect, but still it may not be the perfect mirror. So this is how the kind of reflector you are, on that depends the kind of reflection you get and the kind of personality you develop.
So there should be no aim as such to be dissolved into the reality, should be the desire within you. Start dissolving into it. Then one does not have to talk about detachment. One does not have to talk about anything, about any virtues. They automatically come because now you have become the Divine. Once you become the Divine, even your Kundalini becomes absolutely, beautifully, completely reflecting the primordial one.
So today I had decided to have this puja and to tell you about this Primordial Kundalini and how it has been worked out, it has been built in and it has been given so many powers. Formerly, before this kind of Sahaja Yoga, people had to cleanse their chakras, cleanse their body, cleanse their mind, do all kinds of things, tapas and then they would think of having Realization. Even Mahavira did twelve years of tapas, while in Sahaja Yoga none of you have done any tapas, nothing. From the very first day you have been blessed and you have had blessings and you have been enjoying your blessings throughout. So that is a temptation. Remember it’s a temptation. Don’t get lost with the blessings that you are having. You have to go further and further and further.
So it’s not a difficult life in Sahaja Yoga at all. On the contrary, it’s very much easier, but then people start using Sahaja Yoga for certain purposes which secretly they know that they are using Sahaj Yoga for that purpose and that purpose. If you start using Sahaj Yoga for any such purpose, then again you have a fall, then again you have to understand that this was a wrong thing and then again you rise. So people go like this, up and down, up and down, up and down. But still, I must say, this Realization that is given to you has been given without cleansing you, without telling you anything, without asking for anything, without any kind of bondage on you, bandhan on you and you got this Realization, but now, immediately after Realization, you are in the bondage of your Kundalini and you have to look after Her and you have to look after yourself. Now you have to identify yourself fully with your Kundalini and then everything works out all right.
So today is the day when we have to decide that our greatest weapon as Austria is Astra, is Kundalini and we should know how to use it, what mantra’s to be used, what is the problem we have and we should not be shy of our problem. If we have a problem, we should know this is our problem. It must be corrected. Also we should know the technique fully. I find that some people know lots of techniques and also they know how to give big speeches, but they are not good in their hearts. The hearts are not clean. They want to use their power of speech just to show off their knowledge. Then there are some people who are – who are such that they are good in vibrations and they want to give vibrations, but they are afraid and they don’t know much about the technique.
So you have to know all these three things properly if you really want to achieve full results of your ascent and if you really want to transform the world, then you have to know you have to be ideal people. You cannot be problematic people. Now see, yesterday I was surprised how many people they were sick, how many people were suffering from this or that. While you should thank your stars that none of you have any sickness, you are perfectly all right, you don’t have bad habits, you don’t have anything. You’ve just come out of it. But to go further, you have to have full determination and understanding that this is a tremendous work and a tremendous task and all your powers to be awakened within yourself. You have to be first of all fully equipped with readiness, readiness to serve the Divine. Unless and until you have that readiness, that “I don’t want anything. I don’t want. I just want to serve the Divine.” As long as you are striving for it and asking for it with full heart, with full sincerity, then I’m sure this Kundalini will be strengthened and She’ll cleanse you completely and you’ll one day be Mahayogis.
May God bless you all.
