Interview Los Angeles (United States)

Interview, Los Angeles, date unknown Shri Mataji: „I find today in this country people are seeking, and they don’t know what they are seeking. It is a problem to them. They don’t understand why are they so restless, why can’t they understand things, why can’t they sleep. All kinds of problems are there, while they should be at peace with themselves. But there’s something going on within in the evolutionary process. In the evolution, we have reached up to the human awareness, but there is something beyond that. If so, it is a longing to know what it is, unknown, as to the reason of it, as to the understanding of it. So today I am just going to explain to you why people are seeking.  People think they are not complete, they are not whole. They think, why you are dragged into so many things, for what purpose? For example some people are going to different countries, some are taking to drinking, some are taking to drugs; all these things are not convincing. And they think that, „We have to have something beyond in our awareness, our awareness is not complete.“ This is – can be said that, the nature itself is trying to work it out within us – that we have to evolve more to become complete. Also, it is that desire, that is so strong that we start getting imbalanced, getting into troubles, and taking to things which are not good for our evolution.  So we Read More …

I See A Mountain Cabella Ligure (Italy)

I see a mountain from my window Standing like an ancient sage Desireless, full of Love. So many trees and so many flowers They plunder the mountain all the time. Its attention is not disturbed And when the rain pours Like many pitchers of clouds bursting And it fills the mountain with greenery, The storm may come soaring, Filling the lake with compassion And the rivers flow running down Towards the calling sea. The sun will create clouds and Wind carries on its feathery wings The rain onto the mountain. This is the eternal play The mountain sees Without desires. Shri Mataji Nirmala Devi, 2002.

Dr. Rashid: Shri Mataji, would the onions need to be hot? Shri Mataji: [Yes, very hot.]As far as you can bear it. As far as you can bear it.  It’s a very simple thing. Especially if you have sinus, don’t travel. Dr. Rashid: (Hindi: Shri Mataji, we made a list of questions to ask You, because sometimes some yogis ask us questions and we’re not absolutely sure about them.) Shri Mataji: About diseases? Dr. Rashid: (Hindi: Yes, Shri Mataji, about them.) Shri Mataji: Chemotherapy I’m against. There’s no need. It’s a wrong thing, chemotherapy. You see, they produce heat. You lose your hair. Such a lot of heat. And other complications will come with heat, that is. But Sahaja Yoga is a very simple method. You do use heat, in the sense [that] you use camphor and also these candles. But candles should be big, thick and should give light. But you don’t put it inside the body. Dr. Spiro: So in general, for cancer, say, surgery or radiotherapy would be better than chemotherapy? Shri Mataji: Chemotherapy is absolutely dangerous. It goes from one to another. See – it is a left-sided problem, so chemotherapy gives you heat. With the heat, for the time being, the Left Side improves. That’s all. (But in reality it’s something else.) But you can give Read More …

Evening Program: Arun Apte and students, Talk Ganapatipule (India)

Arun Apte (and students). Ganapatipule, Maharashtra, India. December 1998. the transcription for the first 12 minutes of the talk: It is very difficult to describe this inner joy. You can only enjoy it. You can only feel it. It’s something so innate, to see that so many of you have learnt this difficult music. And all of you have been enjoying it.I went to various places in the West, and I felt that, why, even small little children, boys and girls, take to something which is self destructive? Why? Why do they take to drugs? Why do they take to all these sins which are self destructive?I mean we could blame the parents to some extend, but on the all, there was something them, which was troubling them, which was trying to say that it’s not true, this’ not the thing, this is not the thing that you want. And that’s what made them go into all kinds of various types of rebellion, I should say, against all the accepted truth or accepted goodness or value system. And I just thought that, of course in India the parents are rather strict, I must say, like – but there is one more thing in India, there’s a big outlet for them. And I found that outlet was the talent that they had. They had lots of talents, all of them I felt, when I talk to them, and this and that, I felt that they have lots of talents, but there Read More …

Talk on Marriage: The Basis of Society is a Family – You Have to Respect Your Women Very Much (date unknown) Moscow (Russia)

Talk on Marriage, The Basis of Society is a Family – You Have to Respect Your Women Very Much Today we have come here to attend a wedding of our brothers and sisters – Sahaja Yogis. It’s important to understand that marriage is a very important thing in Sahaja Yoga because the basis of society is a family. And our society should have very good families. That’s why we are paying so much attention to these weddings, that they should make good family. But sometimes people are very conditioned and they don’t understand what is a Sahaja wedding. They try to find faults with the partners, and within two or three months they are again out of Sahaja Yoga. In the sense that they want to have their second chance, third chance, fourth chance, then I think that My attention I am just wasting for nothing at all for such people. If they don’t like our first choice they should have their own.  Why to bother us? They should not give us any more trouble. Very surprising things I have seen about the marriages that have been going on. One of them is they’re alright for two or three months, and suddenly god knows what bhoot catches them, one of them, that they just give up on a small excuse here and there. They don’t understand that how important is for them to have a good married life. They can go up to three months, four months – then I Read More …

Ardha Matra Volume 2 Interview (India)

Ardha Matra Volume 2 Interview Translation from Hindi Reporter: Through Kundalini awakening we can achieve our Self-realization.  In various ancient scriptures too, it has been described. The founder of Sahaja Yoga, Shri Mataji Nirmala Devi has given experience of self-realization through Kundalini awakening, to hundreds of thousands of people throughout the world. Sahaja yoga is gaining popularity in more than seven countries as of today. Ardha Matra had an exclusive meeting with Shri Mataji about the Kundalini power and Sahaja yoga. We are presenting excerpts from the same interview… Reporter: In Ramayana TV serial, we watched Sage Valmiki giving knowledge of Kundalini power to princes Luv and Kush. Kindly tell us in details about this happening and Kundalini power. Shri Mataji: Kundalini power does reside within us. If Valmiki told about this, then it must be true because he was a great man.  He knew that no matter how much knowledge one attains but until unless self-realisation is achieved, one remains incomplete. Now about this power… in our country many people knew about this for ages and they were called Gurus..masters [sadguru].  These people had attained this knowledge through very hard penance. A power names as Kundalini resides in our triangular bone. And we call it Kundalini because it’s sits in the shape of three and a half coil. It is very surprising it that even Greeks knew about this. Because the triangular bone where Kundalini resides, they call it “Sacrum” (means sacred) bone. It means there is this sacred Read More …

Public Program (Australia)

Public Program I bow to all, all of you who are seekers of truth. At the very outset we have to know that truth is what it is. You cannot organise truth, you cannot conceptualize it. Unfortunately you cannot know truth at human awareness. Whatever I’m going to tell you today, you need not accept it blindly but you must have an open mind like a scientist and if I am putting forward before you a hypothesis, if it works then you have to accept it as honest people. The truth is extremely simple, that you are not only this body, this mind, this ego, these conditionings but you are the spirit, you are the divinity and the second one is that there is an All Pervading Power of divine love which is doing all living work. For example we take these beautiful flowers for granted, how a simple seed has created these beautiful flowers. We never even think about it, even we don’t think how we have been evolved from amebae stage to human level. There are so many things we do not think about and there are so many things which cannot be explain to us even by science. I think only 25 % things can be explained whichever are very obvious but the science cannot tell us how, the periodic law has been constructed by which intelligent creator that has put all elements in such a beautiful manner which also indicates what new elements we are going Read More …

Sahaja Yoga: The Essential Medicine (Location Unknown)

Sahaja Yoga – The Essential Medicine Sahajayoga and essential medicine Shri Mataji Nirmaladevi- grandmother, scholar and freedom fighter. As a child she lived in Gandhiji’s ashram, as a student she studied medicine and as cry for freedom swept India she fought for her nation’s independence. The year 1970 was about her most important role. The discovery of development of sahajayoga, a movement which is now spreading in worldwide. Sahajayoga is a science of integration which results in man’s mental, physical and spiritual wellbeing. The union of mind heart and spirit is a achieve through the working of a subtle energy system within each one of us. “That you are not this body, this mind, these conditionings, this ego but we are the spirit. You don’t have to accept what I am saying blindly because blind faith leads to fanaticism. But as scientist you must keep your mind open and see for yourself what I am saying if it is so honestly you must accept it.” In today’s society this subtle energy system which has its origins in very roots of our being has been neglected. It is out of balance. Today’s physical and psychological diseases are gross expressions of a subtle system in dire need of repair and nourishment. Our collective desire of a peace and rejuvenation is a yearning coming from deep within. It is a reflection of our internal condition. “We know so much though science about our civilization our advancement . This is a advancement of a Read More …

Ham sab Hindustani hai (India)

1990-0300 Hum Sab Hindustani Hai (We all are Indians) [Hindi to English translation] We all are Hindustani [Indians] and are living in Bharat [India]. We are nurtured from the grains and water of this land. This land is supporting our livelihood and will continue to do so in the future. For our children, for our future generation, our message should be – “Love our country. We should have a lot of affinity towards our country”.  I have seen abroad and it’s very surprising that in every country, each and every one knows about their country and are proud of their country. When we ask them, “There is so much of poverty in your country.” They say, “So what? This is our country. This country gave birth to us, we have grown here, we have brought up in this culture. This is our country and it is of great pride to us”.  In the same way every Indian also should think that Bharat [India] or which is called as Hindustan is our country. We should be patriotic. As soon as you become patriotic, you will be surprised that you will develop a lot of good qualities.  First characteristic you will develop is – all the useless aspirations, all wasteful desires will end. You will feel that if the country progresses, we will also progress.  In My lifetime, I have seen such great people. Our time was different that We saw many great people who sacrificed so much. On seeing them I Read More …

Sahaja Culture Now you see the western culture is coming so fast on your head and also another thing is that today low-level creations are coming, do you understand that part like dramas, like cinemas, like books so many also newspapers, very low level they are.

So now tell Me what should we do? you also come and sit in the front (Marathi) A Yogi: (Marathi) the good dramas which are now closed due to lack of the audience. The dramas which are our cultural heritage, few of them are showing Sahaja culture that day You were also saying this, we should show such dramas, convince the people, we should buy the tickets and then force the people sit and watch them. Shri Mataji: (In Marathi) so what happened the day before yesterday we went to see a drama. (English) I went to see a very wonderful drama which is of an international level such a great drama it was, `RAMA WANI PATHWILA`. And there were hardly 20-30 people to watch that.

Shri Mataji: Not yet. That’s not yet settled, because told you, if he has a problem, is a problem. I am telling you very frankly:  unless and until you fully sort it out, you are not to be married. Sorry, I don’t want him to loose his job, alright? Sahaja Yogi: Yes. Shri Mataji: You see, if he looses his job, if he has to resign and go away it’s not proper. Sahaja Yogi: That’s right.

Conversation Rahuri (India)

Conversation, 1982, India …Coming down here to convert people. It’s a question of democracy, you see? Because in a democratic country, if there are more majority of the Muslims or Christians, then will become the, sort of the rulers, you see? So this move is you have to purchase people, convert them, and they are worried about it. I told them Sahaja Yoga is the only way by which people will settle down into themselves.You see, to have such a large majority in this country — (better I have some more, please) — such a large majority, or, I, I should say such a large democracy. And democracy, one has to pay a lot, because such, such influences might infiltrate, see? The Saudi Arabians can come down here and sort of clamp the whole country with their own government, possibility is there.I mean, they can’t do this in Russia or Poland or any place where they sow democracy. Which, without democracy people cannot develop. They cannot develop. Like, if a, say a Russian comes here, he’s not bothered about yoga or anything, never. He’s in, in say, if he’s in Bombay he’ll ask if there’s a discotheque or something. If he comes to the villages he will see how dirty your villages are. He is so inconvenient. He has so many problems, kind of basic. He can never feel the peace. He can never feel the peace because they are not developed, you see. All such undemocratic countries have human Read More …

Letter London (England)

Letter translated from Marathi. London 1979. My dear Sahaja Yogis, Received your loving and beautiful letters and messages of greetings. Here, I am busy in the work in London and could not write. Once I told you that Sahaja Yoga is beginning from Navaratri this year. That is, Satya Yuga, for which you were so far preparing, will now be seen. As a tree has to sprout first in the earth and then its sapling peeps out, in the same way, on the first day of Navaratri i.e. on 8th April the sapling of Satya Yuga will be seen. It is the day of great joy. Whole Nature will now have new life. You must understand that the importance of this day will be known only if the whole mankind is enlightened with vibrations of love. In this world Brahma Shakti was awakened from the very day of My birth. You have received it to some extent, and are using it in many ways. I was telling you that light of that great power of love will spread all over the world. The first lamp will be lit on that day. But night of Diwali is blind. It cannot see the lamps. In this Kali-Yuga, this work will be done only if many lamps are lit. Whatever is God’s work, it will be over. Hence all should be alert and awake and also awaken others. My life is dedicated to you. Every moment it is working. All I want is Read More …

Letter Human Chitta has many illusions (Location Unknown)

Letter translated from Marathi, 1979. (THE LIFE ETERNAL, 1979 ISSUE) Human chitta has many illusions. When they are removed, human chitta becomes enlightened and blissful. Many of your illusions have been removed by Kundalini awakening.1. You have realised that Kundalini is not an imaginary but a living power in man.2. This power is within every human being and its awakening takes place spontaneously in a normal person.3. This awakening does not take place by any act. But, if a person has committed bad deeds, awakening is not possible because, even in the dormant state, She is aware of the past deeds of the person. Kundalini has righteousness and, although she is Mother, in witness state she knows what is good and bad for the person. Diseased body and mind get cured by the grace of Kundalini.4. Kundalini shakti is the power of desire of Bhagwati. She is easily awakened just by the wish (Sankalpa) of Bhagwati. A person of very high order has to put in great efforts for it. But it is not his fault.5. Brahma Tattwa which is flowing within you in the form of vibrations cleans all your three sheaths – body, mind and ego. When any of these sheaths becomes impure your vibrations give you the indications.6. You get the bliss of the Spirit, if you become of sound body, pure mind and ego-less. Vibrations of bliss flow from the Spirit because its light beams unaffected (??).7. How has this Universe been made? Why was it Read More …

Our Understanding of Sahaja Yoga, Seminar London (England)

Our Understanding of Sahaja Yoga, London, 1978 Today if you ask me one or two questions it would be better and I will give you the answers because this is between us – those who have had the experience and those who are practically there, and there are very few new people here I see. But those who are at least acquainted with the vibrations and all that, should ask me questions to begin with, because then otherwise I will be tackling new persons later on. Hmm. Yogi: Mother you said in Caxton Hall that if a person doesn’t speak to their mother for a long time…can you elaborate on that theme again please. Shri Mataji: You see, you are born from a mother, alright? You are not born hanging from a tree, and neither you are thrown from the heavens and suddenly you are found, born on this Earth. You are born from a mother in her womb. Her blood flows into you for nine months. You live upon her. You are a part and parcel of her being for nine months, which is the most important time of your life. Now, she is there to give you, first, the sense of security. In a mother’s womb a child feels secured. If the mother is upset it has an effect on the child. If there’s something wrong with her then that is affected on the child, in the sense, physically, also. It’s such a deep relationship exists between you Read More …

Letter to Delhi yogis London (England)

Letter to Delhi Sahaja Yogis, London, May 1978. Dear Sahaj Yogis of Delhi Your loving letters put me in the same plight as after worship, every pore of the body oozes out the chaitanya. It gives me great pleasure to learn that you all are engrossed in your sadhana.A mother only wishes dear children should stand on their own and that her acquire their own wealth. So long as this does not happen, our life will have no fulfillment in spite of (in the midst) all achievements. No Sadhana becomes possible without turning within (inward) we should speak of only that in which lies our ultimate wellbeing and piety. What else is there to achieve in the human life except God?Sahaj Yoga is an unparalleled discovery. The entire humanity will have to be acquainted with Sahaj Yoga in the same manner as a scientific invention is made known to all, only an individual makesan invention but he extends its benefits to the entire mankind. This is the way of man. Another thing is that an inventor can work only on the basis of the knowledge accumulated in the past. Similarly the day has now come when, after several past revelation man has been brought within the horizons of his goal. But when we enter this beautiful shrine we should not forgot those steps which have led us to it. The builder of those steps which have led us to it. The builder of those steps and the maker of this Read More …

Talk on Pingala Nadi (Location Unknown)

Talk on Pingala Nadi [Translation from Hindi] Many years ago, in India, people started working on Pingala Nadi. You must have heard about king Bali when Vamana incarnation took place. King Bali was a religious person. But he did YAgnya. For getting creative powers people do YAgnya. By doing YAgnya you can control five elements. Inspiration or wish for this is to take the power of the entire world into our hands. That we become Chakravarti king on this earth. Rule of demons expands in this world. Demons become powerful. Even dev has such kind of wish but due to lack of dharma in demons, their wish is more powerful. If a car does not have a break, it rolls out of control, in the same way, their wish also flows like that. Some cunning gurus used to help them in this. Surprisingly some of them were realized souls and Brahmans. Like Vishwamitra Ji was there, he only taught Bali. Like he was a pure effort. There were many impure and cunning efforts. But he had pure efforts. My efforts only you can move on Pingala Nadi. And for this effort is being told that you tap, YAgnya, and acquire the powers. It is about pleasing Brahma dev. You cannot get salvation by pleasing Brahma dev. It will not transform you or take you to new human awareness. It might give you control over five elements like water and air. Or you might get certain powers by which you can Read More …
