It has been a
great joy to meet you all. And, I did not imagine that there would be
so many Sahaja Yogis in Hyderabad. Hyderabad has a unique quality
that such diverse people have gelled together so well here. This is
quite similar to our Nagpur, where I have seen that different people
from all across India have settled. And that is why people there have
an openness in their sacraments (Sanskaar) and view each other with
much acceptance. […]

Many people wonder when they see this for the first time if this is Kundalini awakening or some child’s play?

I told you at Dadar how, in Sahaj Yoga, you first go into the state of tadatmya (oneness with the Divine). After the tadatmya one can attain the stage of samipya (Nearness to God) and then salokya (Companionship with God).

God’s existence or His non-existence doesn’t depend on whether you trust God or not. However, much I may say that God exists, even if you believe it, it is not going to make any difference.

Without getting it – Self Realisation, even believing will be still ignorance; […]

“The Origin of Sahaja Yoga”, Public program, Birla Sport Center, Bombay (India), 12 July 1973 

Love does not have any language, so there are no words to describe it. When our mother loves us, how can she describe her love? Similarly, when God Almighty loved us and created this universe, He had no words to describe His love. 

When a human being has prepared their instrument, that’s when they can begin to praise God.

I have not been given a particular subject for discussion today by the organisers of the program as we have three days to fully understand everything.  […]
