That is real brothers and sisters, that’s a different point, but this is- it means in Sahaja Yoga you are.

Sir CP: Hum? […]
I just want to thank you all from My heart for coming to celebrate this anniversary with your love. I can’t do more than to thank you really how you people have appreciated My humble work.

Inauguration (from Hindi). Noida, Uttar Pradesh (India), 27 March 2003.
You must allow me today to speak in Hindi Language.
In our country there are many problems. One of the biggest problems is that here men and women are seen from different angles or different points of view. I don’t know how this happened because it is not written so in our Shastras (Holy Books). It is written in the Shastras that “Yatra pujyante nari” (Sanskrit) meaning that where women are worshipped, […]

I don’t know what to say! (laughter)
You are living in this house now and it was very nice because Sahaja Yogis were living here and they enjoyed my stay here. But we have to change and progress – that’s the point is. With every change you must progress otherwise it has no meaning, the change has no meaning.
So now they are thinking that I should now be in the house here. […]
Talk on Birthday Felicitations. Delhi (India). 23 March 2002
This felicitation function is little embarrassing for Me because I was born as a very simple person and I have been an extremely simple person. I don’t understand money. I don’t understand hatred. I don’t understand greed. I’m so simple about it. Despite that, you people came and got your Realization. It’s your own achievement. It’s your own desires that you have achieved. I find so many children nowadays born as realized souls. […]
Advice to yogis. Hong Kong, 18 December 2001.
I am so happy to hear all of you singing those… songs which are sung all over the world. Now you have become part and parcel of that whole. We have Sahaja Yogis everywhere.

1002-0423 Talk to Sahaja Yogis from Africa, Istanbul,
It should not come to your people because you live with the nature and nature is not corrupted. Every leaf which is on a tree receives the sunshine; every leaf is different in the world and they are well organized in such a manner that all of them receive the sunlight. But in corruption, one wants to have all and everything. And then, he doesn’t know what the joy in giving to others is. […]
Birthday Felicitations. Delhi (India), 20 March 2001.
Sir C.P.’s Talk:
I recall that one day in 1970, She told me, She said, ‘I’m now going to devote Myself to Sahaja Yoga.’ I said, ‘What’s that?’ But She said, ‘You know, I want to promote a movement of tranforming human beings.’ So I looked at Her in amazement…. I said, ‘Transforming human beings? Are you sure.’ She said, ‘Yes, I am.’…
She began with a small number of Sahaja Yogis and the number has grown and what a wonderful gathering we have here now…. […]

I’ve been here for now quite some time, I think. And, I want to really tell you something important that Los Angeles is a very, very important area.

What is the reason for that? […]

Talk after Sahastrara Puja, “Penetrate Your Attention”,. Cabella Ligure, Italy, 7 May 2000
It was really a wonderful idea to put my attention to all these fields of life which are very important and, as it is, I have attention on all of them and I care for all that. But I would say now you all people put in your attention to it, because it is you who can do something about it. You can start with the nature as they said is this: we have to be kind to the nature. […]
I am grateful for what all you have done for me. I would be glad if you all grow deeper into Sahajayoga. Many of you are good Sahajis.
You must remember that you have to become ideal yogis because you have to transform the whole world. That is what your Mother expects from you, that is my only desire. Everything else is futile, of no value. Then only you enjoy being in the Kingdom of the Divine. […]

“Expression of Five Elements on a Sahaja Yogi”. Delhi (India), 16 December 1998.
I have been telling them that the style of Indian knowledge is very different from the Western mind. In the West, you see, if you say something, then they want to have an experimental approval. They will go to the scientists or to other people who are equipped with knowledge to know what they said in these books is true or not. They will even judge Christ. […]

In the nature one goes absolutely thoughtless. For me it is such a pleasure to meet you all here under the trees. There is a beautiful atmosphere created by these trees.
