Devi Puja Burj 2000, Sharjah (United Arab Emirates)

Devi Puja, Burj 2000, Sharjah (United Arab Emirates), April 21st, 2001, (very poor sound) I didn’t know you were waiting here. But you are now with those great guys [unsure]. But I didn’t know about your program that you were going to be here. And I had to finish something today.It’s all right. I have seen Sahaja Yogis when they have to wait, they are more together, they are more collective and they enjoy much more. So, it is not that they’ll feel angry or boring. I’ve seen in many cases, if the plane is late, they would all be there, nicely sitting, enjoying, laughing, even if it is late by four hours, five hours, doesn’t matter.There is no passport in our hands. We are in the ocean of Vishwa Nirmala Dharma. So, whatever we have is all nothing but joy, out of this ocean of love. So, we are already in the ocean of love. And we are enjoying the bliss of that. I know there are some misunderstanding sometimes, all kinds of things happen. But still, we’re progressing. Despite that, you’ll progress and progress very well in every action, in every land. I’ve seen in St Petersburg, [inaudible] I was so amazed to see Mister [inaudible] the wisdom. He said I have done it, but no. Actually, it’s something great. So, the enthusiasm that is going on, that comes through Sahaja Yoga. But you must meditate, you must go [inaudible], you must attend programs, and you must improve. Read More …

Public Program Chandigarh (India)

1995-12-07 Public Program, Hindi, Chandigarh, India Sahaja Yogi speaking: As you can see in the triangular bone, on the back bone, It is located. It is called as Kundalini. In Greek language it is called as ‘sacrum bone’. The meaning of sacrum is ‘something that is sacred’. Now don’t pay attention to anything else like – ‘what is happening’, ‘who is walking on the stage’, ‘how the decoration is’, ‘what is happening’, all such things. Only concentrate on getting your Realization. It is in your nature, I am telling you again, maybe today is a turning point in your life. Remember my words. I’ll repeat again, ‘it’s possible that today your life will change. Your Kundalini..’ [Ends here as Shri Mataji arrives and She is being welcomed]. Time: 4:37 Shri Mataji speaks in Hindi I bow to all the seekers of truth. First and foremost I would like to tell you that the Truth is ‘True’ in its place. You cannot change it, you cannot describe it and it needs to be experienced. About this experience, for thousands of years Markandeya swami, Adi Shankaracharya, everyone and even in foreign countries, many great saints have told that without the experience you cannot know the truth. What we believe is the truth is through our intelligence, as per our brains. Whatever our intelligence says ‘it is true’, we believe it and get involved in it. The growth of this intelligence – is in the head of human beings. In the head, whatever Read More …

Conversation on Islam Montfermeil Ashram, Montfermeil (France)

Conversation on Islam, Montfermeil ashram, Montfermeil (Paris), France, July 11th, 1994 Indians are ancient people; they travelled all over the world. They went to, even to England. [Inaudible] But the best part is the timing: six hours difference. And this six hours difference comes in with the exact timing in India and here. And another I will tell you, the way they give degrees to the studies, Bachelor of Arts. “Apne a brahmachary tatva”, masters of arts, Brahmins. These are the things of ancient times, guru [?] Dr Rustom Banjorjee: Like laureates. Shri Mataji: You are surprising Me. Even in, near Peru or somewhere, there were mountains called Shiva, Vishnu. Sahaja Yogi: I don’t know Shri Mataji. Arnaud de Kalbermaten: Even in Bolivia. Shri Mataji: Bolivia, what do you have? Arnaud: In Bolivia, there are some ruins, Shri Mataji, which is unexplained and they think that the people came from a very far away country to build this ruin. And it was a city in the Altiplano. Shri Mataji: What did they build? Arnaud: It was all the city. It’s not the Maya it’s a city which is quite close to La Paz. Tiwanaku. Shri Mataji: Best part of it, I’ll tell you, is that we went down to Bogota. And what is that port called? You have got a port in Bogota? Sahaja Yogi: Cartafel? Shri Mataji: Hum, Cartafel. So we went there and they were having a party, reception party. So I asked them: “Why do you have Read More …

Dance and Talk Newcastle (Australia)

Dance and Talk Shri Mataji: Such talents, such mastery of Mrs Kanan on what we call the “bhawas” means the emotions, the way she expressed her emotions …She is really a master if she was in India people would have really knew that such a great artist is being sent to NewZealand.It should not have been done 🙂And a little girl I must say for a rage, she is so dynamic, so rhythmic and so perfect. All these dances I know very well because I have been seen dancing from the very childhood of mine I should say…The perfection they have achieved is really remarkable …I don’t know how far you have understood the different moods have shown if in one after the other …How she has gone from one mood to another mood. It’s very difficult If you see the expressions on the face hands everything…It’s a very difficult dance and also the dance that you saw of “Jattiswaram” Also is a very vigorous dance. All these are extremely beautifully manifested and I haven’t seen such a group of mother and daughter doing such good work so far …May God Bless them. I am so very happy to be here to see all this. Moreover, I would say that all the Sahaja yogis should try to learn from them …That such a little girl how she has dedicated herself to her mother’s rt and how she has learnt from her… And how both of them are so dedicated …Let Read More …

In our heart lies the power to absorb, to enjoy the beauty of spirituality Pune (India)

1989-12-27 India Tour – How We Should Behave [English Transcript] It was very interesting I was thinking about you all and about the people who have done so much for Sahaja Yoga. It is impossible really to say how many have worked for Sahaja Yoga with such interest and dedication. And this dedication is directed by divine force that’s why I think you people are not even aware how much you have worked so hard without getting any material gain out of it. And the joy has no value. We cannot evaluate in any human terminology nor can we describe it as to how we feel the joy of oneness together. This togetherness is very much felt in Ganapatipule. I see the leaders from all over the world have become great friends – there’s no jealousy, there’s no quarrelling, there’s no fighting, there’s no domination, there’s no shouting, nothing. Such beautiful brothers and sisters such a beautiful family we have created out of this beautiful universe.Now we have to maintain the beauty individually and collectively. Some people think that individually if you do something that is alright, but if it is not related to the collective it cannot be sahaj. Anything that you do has to be related to the collective. Now to be individualistic is a trend in the modern times and in that how far we have gone into nonsense that we know very well. Individuality is a personality within yourself which has to be of different hues, Read More …

The International Situation (Location Unknown)

The International Situation 1989-0901 [A Talk given in response to a request from a Sahaja Yogi.  Location unknown.  Possibly UK] The state of our planet, or Mother Earth, is very precarious.  On one side we see signs of great destruction at the hands of human beings and which are therefore our own creation. The potent idea of destruction is at work within human beings, but it creates destructions on the outside.  This destructiveness is not necessarily deliberate, but blind and uncontrollable.  It is this blindness and ignorance that have to be enlightened. According to the ancient Puranas of India it is precisely these dark days of Kali Yuga or modern times that are the times for en masse Self-Realization or the Age of enlightenment. But, we still have many problems from our past or our history that have to be solved beforehand.  These have a bearing on the international situation, so first let us see which problem or problems have to be solved. In international relations, there have been a number of fundamental problems in recent years.  In the post-World War the most important political development has been the conflict between communism and the democratic idea.  There was a fundamental cleavage between these forms of political thoughts and government, and this has resulted in a lot of constant tensions between East and West.  This became one of the very crucial issues of our times for the future of humanity. In recent years, however, there was a major change initiated, first in Read More …

Talk after fireworks New York City (United States)

“Talk after fireworks”, New York City (United States) July 4th, 1989 [Inaudible] Shri Mataji: And they are completely under fear. Also, their feelings of frightness give them a very left-sided mood. Secondly, the people are also very violent. Violent people are very few. But the ones who are frightened of them are many more. So because of that, those who are frightened also have another mood of left-side. So despite the- this place is so active, everything, you feel the left side here more than the right side. First, I could not understand what was the reason. The people are very insecure, frightened, and also those who are having jobs are also sort of, a little bit insecure about the jobs. Like, New York is very insecure they say: “New York is the most insecure place in the country.” Now, when I went to Colombia, of course, there are murders, I mean there are killings every day, forty, but still, they said: “It’s less insecure than New York.” I said: “Why?” Thay said: “For a purpose, they kill. I got a repport that there’s a union which wants to have more money. And then, the manager says no. Then they can go and kill the manager sometimes. In the manager’s system labours, it’s like that. But there is some purpose, there is some hatred, there is some reason. But here, anybody can kill anybody.” There’s no rhyme and reasons and that’s why there’s so much of fright and fear. So, Read More …

Public Program (Fragment) (England)

Yogi: When Kundalini becomes with the spirit. A person becomes aware of that spirit as silence and as becomes the witness, it’s like when you’re been on the outside of a roundabout, in a kiddies playground whirling round and you feel ill. And somehow, you go to the center of the roundabout and you sit of the axis of the roundabout and then you can watch the whole thing but you don’t feel sick any more, you see it, you enjoy it but you don’t feel giddy. [UNCLEAR] ..even if you are falling off…hurt.  So you become the witness and you become silent and at peace. But more than that, you get the coolness of the holy spirit or is the coolness of vibrations… and this coolness is the thing which is the treatment [UNCLEAR] … which enables the Kundalini to rise. To recognise that there is a holiness and… Shri Mataji: We can’t hear you. Yogi: A purity. And that holiness, instance and purity of the Divine vibrations is what makes this Kundalini to rise. It’s the conditions which enable the seed within us to sprout. One can then become aware of the mechanism inside, and can be aware of vibrations so instead of just judging things on thoughts, or on feelings, on likes or dislikes that we’ve got from previous experiences. One can go on vibrations and going by vibrations means that if something is incorrect it is so because it is harmful to us. And it’s harmful Read More …

Shri Mataji comments on “Jesus, The Son of Man” Brompton Square House, London (England)

Shri Mataji reads a part of the chapter 1 of “Jesus, The Son of Man” from Kahlil Gibran, 1985 “And were it not for sorrow in all of you I would not have stayed to weep.”“Who are you and what are you, Judas Iscariot? And why do you tempt me?”“Have you in truth weighed me in the scale and found me one to lead legions of pygmies? And to direct chariots of the shapeless against an enemy that encompass-that encamps only in your hatred and marches nowhere but in your fear?” Shri Mataji: “Marches nowhere but in your fear”, means you have enemies within yourself.“Too many are the worms that crawl about me feet, and I will give them no battle. They are worms! I am weary of the jest, and weary of pitying the creepers who deem me coward because I will not move among their guarded walls and towers. ““Pity it is that I must needs pity to the very end.”“Would that I could turn my steps towards a larger world where larger men dwell. But, how shall I?” Shri Mataji: And now he said about the future, he?“Your priest and your emperor would have my blood. They shall be satisfied ere” means before, “I go hence. I would not change the course of the law. And I would not govern folly”. Shri Mataji: Because, it’s because of the law that he was to be crucified.“Let ignorance reproduce itself until it is weary of its own offspring.”“Let the Read More …

Success stories with Janet Turner Los Angeles (United States)

TV Interview “Success stories with Janet Turner”. Los Angeles (USA), 1983. Reporter: The Academy award-wining Movie about Gandhi, made many Americans aware of the great work this man accomplished in India. My next guest worked with Gandhi but she is here in America now to help us find what she calls “Self-realization” Stay tuned! I think you are going to find this very interesting. Her name is Shri Mataji.Reporter: Did I say it OK?Shri Mataji: It’s good. [laughter]Reporter: It’s actually longer than that! But we are not even going to try that. [laughter]I just got to ask, was Gandhi anything like the actor who portrayed him in the movie?Shri Mataji: Oh! Very much. Very well done. The only thing was the style of talking of Gandhi was rather more Indian. This fellow was over brilliant, I think.Reporter: Over brilliant?Shri Mataji: And he would answer everything in such an alert way, and Gandhi ji was a very slow speaker. That’s it.Reporter: It took little longer to come out.Shri Mataji: Yes. That’s it, you see.Reporter: But they portrayed him so perfect like a saint.

You feel the blessings as nirvichara Mumbai (India)

“You feel the blessings as nirvichara” Conversation with Yogis, Thursday, 2nd January 1979, Mumbai  …But if your attention is passing through the centre of the Agnya chakra you don’t see any light. But if it is not passing through that, then what happens [is], because your attention is outside, you see the light. Because it is enlightening also, you see. And you just see the light but the Kundalini is not passing through,  just it’s stuck up there. And that’s why, because of that light, your eyes go on like that, you see. People have seen even a complete flow of light moving up like that. But they have not felt the Realization. They saw it coming up to the Agnya and then the whole thing dropped back. They saw it! They saw the Kundalini how it was helping, [how] the Adi Kundalini was helping your Kundalini – they saw it. Even this light rising is because of that. Because your attention is still outside, you see. So the flickering of the eyes starts. Then I tell you to fix up your eyes onto my finger. When you fix it up onto my finger and my face, what happens [is] the chaitanya pushes you, through your eyes, into the centre, so that you see me as I am. But the eyes are controlled by the chaitanya and the attention that is inside is pushed inside that, what you call the apparition, in the Agnya chakra. So I always say that Read More …

Nabhi Chakra London (England)

Nabhi Chakra, London1978-02-20 How it is placed within us. Nabhi chakra also has got two sides- left and right. On the left hand side of the Nabhi chakra is placed as a centre or you call it a chakra or a sub-chakra called as the Chandra means the moon. Moon centre on the left hand side, and right hand side is the sun centre and they are placed exactly on the moon line and the sun line i.e. first the Ida and the Pingala. These two centres are the two points up to which we can go and move from left to right. Beyond that when we start going you cross the limits. Now these two centres when localized, see they have vertical vibrations flow over to them but when they are localized at that point how we spoil them. We must understand. Left Nabhi and right Nabhi are interdependent on each other. If you pull too much of left Nabhi or work too much on left Nabhi then right Nabhi also can catch. But say we will take one by one. Now the left Nabhi is caught, normally if you eat food at somebody’s house who is a sort of spiritualist or who is giving a prasad like say Satya Sai baba this horrible fellow, his those vibhutis as they call it because it comes from the cremation ground, see that ash, all these things and all these types of food when you eat…. a person who believes in Read More …

Deeper Meditation London (England)

“Deeper Meditation”, London, 20 February 1978 Cooly (Tony Paniotou) have you written it down? Shri Mataji: Hello, How are you?  Yogi: Very well, thank you. Shri Mataji: May God bless! You can sit on the chair. Be comfortable.  Yogi: Oh, that’s very kind!  Shri Mataji: Ask Cooly to write it down for him. Yogi: He is doing it. Hello! How are you Douglas? How are you? Douglas Fry: Very well! Shri Mataji: Looking very fine! Just like a flower beautiful! See what beautiful children I have, just like these petals over here. Can you open a window for a while. Just open the window for five minutes. Sit comfortably. Be comfortable, like this. I mean. Yes, be very comfortable. One has to be very, very comfortable, very comfortable. She got it even before she had seen me! Because that shows that it’s flicking in the air. Today I want to tell you about further meditation: how we have to go and how we have to understand ourselves. You see the thing is, so far you have had habits of dealing with things, and your practices: how you have dealt with the worldly problems, with your personal problems, your physical problems, body problems, but now as you have entered into the Kingdom of God and the power of God is flowing through you, you must know that your solutions and your styles have to be different now; that is, you have to put your attention at the disposal of God. Actually Read More …

Atma Ki Anubhuti, Meeting Speech Mumbai (India)

Atma Ki Anubhuti Date : 28th December 1977 Place Mumbai Type Seminar & Meeting Speech   [English translation from Hindi] I had told you the last time what is a soul (Atma), how it is Sachidanand (Sat + Chit + Anand; Truth + Attention + Bliss), and how after being made aware of the soul only humans can achieve these three things. Without self-realization, you cannot know the truth. You cannot achieve bliss. You should have the sensitivity of the soul. Now you can converse with your soul. You can ask the soul. You people are seated, you should ask by stretching your hands like this, is there a God in the world? Does his will reign? You ask these questions in your heart; by stretching your hands like this. Look how strong the flow of vibrations has started. You cannot know any truth unless you get the experience of your soul. Meaning till you get connected. Getting connected to your soul happens very easily in Sahaja Yoga. For some it happens for a very brief period and for some it happens forever.  After getting a connection with the soul we should try to achieve identification with it. Meaning that you have come to know me and I have come to know of you but I have not become you. You are looking at me and I’m looking at you. The moment I start looking with your vision, that is when identification is established. When you enter your soul and then 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 …
