How you can reach to the state of self-realisation? Caffè della Versiliana, Versilia (Italy)

Interview / Public Program at the “Caffè della Versiliana”. Versilia (Italy), 31 August 2001. Romano Battaglia: Bene, cominciamo allora, la Grande Madre comincerà a parlare e spiegare come si può giungere alla realizzazione del Sé. Prego. [Well, let’s start then, the Great Mother will start talking and explaining how to get Self Realization. Please.] Shri Mataji [to Romano Battaglia]: It’s very kind of you to have invited Me to this meeting. He has asked Me to explain to you how you can reach to the state of self-realisation. It’s a very important thing to understand, because so far we have been living only with human awareness. Human awareness is not sufficient enough for us to lead a very happy life, especially collectively. But we have to know that our Creator is a very great, very understanding personality, is a Divine personality. And He has placed within us all the arrangements to get our self-realisation. Self-realisation is the connection with the all-pervading power of Divine Love. For that within us is placed, in the triangular bone called as sacrum, a power. All human beings have this power in the sacrum bone. Sacrum means sacred, and Greeks also knew that it was a sacred bone, so they called it sacrum. So it’s already there, and it has that power which is in three and a half coils. All of you have got it. Now only problem is how to raise this power to connect you to that Divine Power.Now there are little Read More …

Interview Milan (Italy)

Interview, Milan, Italy, 2000-09-19 Interviewer: To be born a realized soul is a gift from God. Shri Mataji: Of course. Of course. Apart from that these days are many children who are children of the Sahaja Yogis are born realized. Yes, it’s very surprising that I think all the great souls want to take birth with the Sahaja Yogis. Interviewer: What is your opinion about hatha yoga? Hatha yoga is a thing which was preached by or written by Patanjali thousands of years back. And in those days, first they used to cleanse the person. It is Ashtanga, eight. There are eight Anga, means parts. And one of the parts is the wee bit of that is this exercise, the physical exercise. Shri Mataji: So his style was to cleanse a person first physically, then mentally, then emotionally, go on and on and on. And then he would get realization. One in a million would get realization. That was the tradition. So I have thought of the modern times. People have no time for anything. So Sahaja Yoga is a very quick method. First get your realization and then you correct yourself. And no obligation. You yourself know about yourself. Shri Mataji: For example, some Sahaja Yogi might come and say, Mother, I have a very bad Agnya. It means I have a very bad ego. But normally nobody says like that. That I am full of ego. But nobody says because suddenly introspection starts. And you want to correct Read More …

(Conversations with sahaja yogis in a hotel) Shri Mataji to a child: I’m talking about you! Ah! One child is enough!Guido: To change the atmosphere.Shri Mataji: Absolutely.

Interview to Shri Mataji to an interviewer in the hotel. Question: What is love for you?Shri Mataji: Love? Love is the power of divinity. It’s the Divine. And that’s why this whole world was created out of love.Q.: So everybody has an inner instrument, but mostly they don’t use it. Why?Shri Mataji: Because of ignorance. Ignorance, you see, every human being is not equally aware.Q.: Is it possible to change this condition?Shri Mataji: Yes, it has to.Q.: In which way?Shri Mataji: By feeling the vibrations of that person on your fingertips. From the level of spirituality.Q.: Which is your mission in Italy?Shri Mataji: Everywhere, it is not only here. Because Sahaja Yoga is now in 86 countries, alright? And My mission is to create a global unity.Q.: To improve the life? To make life better? Shri Mataji: Of course, of course, what Read More …

Kundalini will take you to the Truth Parchi di Nervi, Genoa (Italy)

Public Program, Parchi di Nervi, Genoa (Italy), 4 September 2000. First 12 minutes; bhajans and introduction in Italian.I bow to all the seekers of Truth.We have to know what is the Truth that we are seeking.The Truth is that you a not this body, this mind, these emotions, nor your intelligence but you are the Spirit, which we call as Self. It is written in every scripture that you have to seek your Self. Unless and until you know yourself, you cannot know God. This is the main reason why we have so many quarrels, wars in the name of God. But now it’s very easy for you to know your Self.As they have told you that there lies in your triangular bone a power which we call as Kundalini in India. Kundala means coils and because it is in three and a half coils it is called as kundalini. This has been said in all the religions; that you have this inner power by which you can know your Self. If it can be awakened it passes through six centres, as you have been told. These six centres are for your physical, mental, emotional being. Not only that but they sustain also your spiritual being.This kundalini is actually your own Mother. She is your individual Mother. She resides within you waiting for opportunity to get awakened. And as your mother, when she gave you the birth, she bore all the problems, the kundalini, in the same way, also works Read More …

Human beings are at an intermediary stage Caffè della Versiliana, Versilia (Italy)

Public Program at the “Caffè della Versiliana”. Versilia (Italy), 29 August 1999. Romano Battaglia: ….Arriva a fine millennio. È l’ultima Versiliana di questo millennio. Prego. (…it arrives to the end of millenium. It’s the last Versiliana of this millenium. Please..) Shri Mataji: I bow to all the seekers of truth. If you are really seeking the truth, this is the best time when, at the end of this millennium, you can really understand what is the truth is. We have one problem: as we are born, we have the inheritance from the animal kingdom we should say, because we evolved out of animals. So, because of that, we still have many qualities that are coming from our inheritance. Firstly, the desire to get over somebody, to sort of grab things, or aggressiveness, all comes from there. There are many things we have inherited from them. But now we have another problem: because we think, and by thinking we justify everything wrong we do. And because of this, we continue with all kinds of aggressiveness and all kinds of tortures of others. But this is not what we have to achieve being human beings. Now the truth is that we all can evolve out of this. For that we have to become the Spirit. So we are not this body, this mind, these emotions, this intellect, but we are pure Spirits. We must have faith in that. Actually, to overcome these tendencies of human beings, they started religions. But religions also Read More …

Conference for Doctors Versilia (Italy)

Conference for Doctors, Marina di Pietrasanta, Italy, 2 October 1998. These are the days of a great turmoil and all kinds of problems are cropping ¬up which never happened before: political problem, economic problem, personal problem, family problems. Now also the psychological complications are there and everybody is seeking if there is any solution to this. Physical problems also are there which doctors have to face a lot. And I have also studied medicine, so I know how difficult it is to get through all the exams. Despite that they have not reached to any solutions. But if you believe in God, who is a creator, we have to also believe that He must have given us something to solve these problems. So, I have to just tell you that the time for our transformation, the evolutionary breakthrough has come. As Christ has said, “You seek Me and you’ll find.” So, when all these problems are cropping up, you want to seek the guidance of the Divine. So My simple message is that you have to seek your Self; you must know yourself. Christ has said, “Know thyself.” And for that there is an arrangement within us and if that works out, then you’ll be amazed if you become the Spirit, how the life changes, the whole thing changes for you. You see there are those so many lights here, but if they are not connected to the mains, they do not give light. But if you become the self, Read More …

1998-07-26 Interview Italy Emotional… He’s a very good son of mine and I am very proud of him. He is really well spiritually [Unclear grown]. And he wants you all to share my love also. It’s very kind of him to have invited Me [UNCLEAR] and it’s very kind of you all to be here, present.  [unclear Make something?]… to these people. I’ve come to tell you that within you lies the peace, tranquillity and a very beautiful spiritually life. [CUT] But as Christ has said ‘’You are to be born again’’. But you have to ask for it, nobody can force, nor can you pay for it. In these modern times it is your birthright to have your second birth, birthright. For even which you don’t have to do any [UNCLEAR first]. You don’t have to stand on your head, you don’t have to go to the Himalayas. It is a very spontaneous happening that takes place. Within you lies the power, who is your individual Mother, your own Mother and she knows everything about you, she knows what mistakes you have committed also she knows your aspirations. And as your Mother has given you your birth in the same way She gives you a very beautiful rebirth.  So you get the real baptism. [CUT] Which we call as sacrum that means the Greeks knew it was a sacrum bone also Indians knew about it very much. And there were two saints who travelled all over the world. They Read More …

Human Awareness and Limited Rationality Aula Magna di Santa Lucia, Bologna (Italy)

Bologna Public Program (Italy) I bow to all the seekers of truth. At the very outset, we have to know that the truth is what it is. We cannot change it, we cannot describe it, we cannot conceptualize it. Whatever I am going to tell you, you are not to believe me blindfolded, but you must keep your mind open like a scientist. Treat my speech as a hypothesis, and if proved then you must accept it as honest people. It is for your individual benevolence, benevolence of your city, your country, and the whole world. The truth is that you are not this body, mind, emotions, intellect, ego and your conditionings. But you are the Spirit, the pure Spirit. The second truth is that there is an All-pervading Power of divine love which does all living work. We see these beautiful flowers here and we take it for granted, which is a miracle. In the same way, our body is functioning, our heart is running, and we take it for granted. Doctors say it is the autonomous nervous system, but who is this ‘auto’? In the evolutionary process, we have now reached the state of human awareness. But human awareness is relative. We try to justify everything through our rationality. Hitler could justify his war through his limited rationality. But we have to reach the absolute truth. Unless and until we know the absolute, there will always be fighting and quarrelling going on. Now, within us is placed, you Read More …

Public Program (incomplete) (Italy)

1993-0504 Public Program, Italy I bow to all the seekers of truth. As you know very well that all the religions have talked of one thing that is [that] we should seek the truth. And that we have to be born again. But it is not just a certificate, or a kind of a group we form, saying that we are born again. But it is the actualization. To believe that we have found the truth, that by reading a particular scripture we are the people who are following the truth, is just taking us to darkness of fundamentalism. And that’s why when people tell Me that they are following the religion very strictly, why is it [that] physically, mentally, emotionally they are so sick? But actually, they are not following reality. They have not tried to find out the reality. Thousands of years our forefathers have been doing the same thing. There is no religion which has said [missing portion, poor audio] … But this falsehood has led us into a very big mess that we have started hating each other in the name of religion. And they have become now, all religions, very money oriented. Either they go to the right side, as told to you, or go to the left side and become possessed. The ones who follow any religion, whether Christian, Hindu, Muslim, any religion, are capable of doing any sin. There is no difference between any human being as such. They have to be truth Read More …

It is the easiest to feel your divinity Florence (Italy)

Public Program. Florence (Firenze) (Italy), 1992-0423. I bow to all the seekers of truth. At the very outset, I have to tell you that truth is what it is. We cannot conceptualise it. We cannot know it through the flight of our imagination. Unfortunately, we cannot also know at this human level, human awareness. Because it is subtler than human awareness. Within all of you there is divinity. But because of ignorance, you do not know it. Is not difficult. On the contrary, is the easiest to feel your divinity. Now whatever is told to you about this machinery within you, and whatever I’m going to tell you, you have to understand it with an open mind. Like a scientist, you must know that whatever I’m saying is a hypothesis. And when you find out that that is the truth, then you must accept, as honest people. So believe Me, that every human being is capable of achieving his divinity. Every scripture has said that you are to be born again. And it is said that you have to know yourself: “Know thyself.” But it is not some sort of a artificial baptism, or artificial certificate, that you become a realised soul. But it is a living process of evolution. Like this in the triangular bone is placed this power for your ascent. This is the reflection of the Holy Ghost. Holy Ghost is the Primordial Mother, the Feminine Power, God’s desire. We talk of God the Father, God the Read More …

Public Program (incomplete) Rome (Italy)

Public Program, Rome, Italy, 20-04-1992 I bow to all the seekers of truth. At the very outset we have to know that truth is what it is. We cannot conceptualise it. Nor can we understand at this human awareness. You have to be born again. You have to become the Spirit. In your evolutionary process this is the last stage we have to achieve that you become the Spirit.  Many people have been talking about it. But nobody has paid attention to it. Once you become the Spirit you’ll be amazed how you are transformed. Automatically. You may follow any religion but it is outside. Because whether you are Hindu, Muslim, Christian you can commit any sin. That’s why you have to be the Spirit.  Today I’m going to describe you the quality of the Spirit. First of all you must have been surprised to see how joyously she was singing. Because Spirit is the source of joy. We have already been told that we have to suffer. Why should we suffer? When Christ has suffered for us already. Can we suffer more than He has suffered? There is no need to suffer at all. Only thing is that we are in ignorance. In darkness. And that is why we accept whatever people tell us. Which father would like you to suffer? No sufferings are needed. This power is within you, is your own. So the truth is that you are the Spirit. You are not this body, this mind. Read More …

Evening Program Guru Puja Campus, Cabella Ligure (Italy)

1991-07-27 Evening Program before Guru Puja, Cabella, Italy: Shri Mataji: So, Who will translate me?…I must say that it was a miracle that I reached this place. Just we found out about the other castle that it was not at all good for us because it was not having good vibrations.And we have to shift from there in one day…I requested the mayor of this place and you will be amazed that in one day he sold this house to me and arranged it… And such a miracle it was – the place where you are right now is like Kailasha like Himalaya so pure and so fresh and the people are so beautiful …In the whole of Europe, I have not met …They are extremely hospitable very gentle very kind and the river here is so beautiful and so fresh…So there is no need for you to go to the Himalayas any more. We have to know that Sahaja yoga is something that you start feeling your divinity within yourself. And after your second birth, after your realization, the whole thing starts growing into you automatically, spontaneously. And this tree of love grows and the fragrance of this is love. Pure Love! And that is what our basis …We have only used the power of hatred, so far …Now you have to use this power of love. I know it was all arranged in such a short time, that you might not feel so comfort of the body because Read More …

Bhajans and Talk About Divine Love Ashram of Pichini, Rome (Italy)

“About Divine Love”. Rome ashram (Pichini) (Italy), 22 February 1991. You are singing so beautifully. It seems your heart has opened after this Puja very much and you’re singing like small children now. So sort of, all the conditionings we have had, all the ego also there, it seems now you have become very pure all these problems have gone away and you are enjoying yourselves. This is the best way, when we love ourselves, we know ourselves we become love. Because of so many pressures on us and so many norms we’ve got, which are artificial, and we think only if outside we are alright it’s alright; but truth flowing from within is so joyous. You feel your capacity to love itself is so joyous, and capacity to give is also so joyous. So the Shiva Puja meant that you become love and feel the joy of love. You see when you love someone, if you love your child, you’re not bothered as to how it looks or how it appears, you just love. And if you try to be attentive to somebody because his appearance is good or he’s superficially good, or his manners are good, after some time you’ll be deceiving yourself. But if you’re inner being is beautiful then you will be happy with yourself first of all; because the source of joy is from within yourself. You do not get it from others.So to cleanse yourself and to be open is the best way to Read More …

Public Program Milan (Italy)

Baba Mama: Since music has no barriers, it has no nationality, it has no caste, Unclear(), religion. Neither can it be stopped by any nationality, neither can it be stopped by any boundaries or bullets or war heads. Music is universal and that’s why we have a conviction that this is made by the Divine. Is it the product of the divinity. It has one barrier though and that is a closed heart. Music has a direct nexus with the heart. It has nothing to do with your perception or understanding but it has to only pour its richness, its gravity, its melody into your heart. Our purpose here is to see that our music pours into your heart. Therefore it is my Unclear(Ernst) desire that please sit with all your open hearts which I am sure you are here for. Indian music, like the western music has twelve notes. It has C and C sharp, G and A and B and all that. But the Indian music has certain disciplines put in the system of presentation. Therefore, the creativity in music is discipline and is extremely pleasing to the ear, to the listening ear and very very compatible where the rhythm of heart has concerned. It is after many years of research that has gone into developing this Indian music to find out to what will recreate the man’s and what will give him the required mood for listening to this beautiful creative music. We are sure that we Read More …

1990-0507 Public Program, Rome, Italy Please be seated. I bow to all the seekers of Truth. At a very outset we have to understand that Truth is what it is. We cannot organize it or imagine about it. But we have to unclear(treat) and knowing about your central nervous system. You can see clearly that I am very unclear() see with your eyes. but for an animal, he, what his understands is very limited quietly a human being has much greater sensitivity. To smell, taste, color everything. At human level we understand many things much more than animals but because of the evolutionary process. And this evolutionary process is a living process. It is not a process which is just a thought of imagined of but it is a living process. In the same way if we have to ascend, if we have to become a higher being, if we have to know the Truth, then this evolutionary process should give us that special status. At human level you cannot feel the Truth. People believe that this is the Truth, that is the Truth. Then there should be no fight, there should be no quarrel if its Absolute Truth. But like blind people holding an elephant is climbing differently people who believe that this is the Truth are doing the same thing. If this is the Truth, then universally everybody must accept it. And that is the reason we find that people are quarreling about things which is falsehood. So Read More …

As you know very well, that all the religions have talked of one thing that is, we should seek the truth and that we have to be born again. But it is not just a certificate or a kind of a group we form, say that we are born again.

What is the difference between Sahaja Yoga and other yogas? Milan (Italy)

Public Program, Milan, 6 August 1989 I bow to all the seekers of truth. You are here to feel the truth. And not to just conceptualise it mentally. Now, there’s a question yesterday, people asked that what is the difference between Sahaja Yoga and other yogas. All these yogas have been written down by a saint called Patanjali, long time back. And he called it Ashtanga Yoga, Ashtanga, with eight facets. He existed thousands of years back, and that time we had a system in which the students went into the university to study under some enlightened soul, a guru, satguru. So, there are eight facets of the Yoga, mean union with the divine. So, he has got, the first one as yama. Yama Niyama. Yama is the first one in which he has written what we have to do to make our breathing all right or to control our misbehaviour. So, one-third of that is the asanas where you do physical exercises for a particular type of problem. But that is not Hatha Yoga. Hatha Yoga is a complete Patanjali Yoga Shastra, Yoga – that is complete Patanjali Yoga scripture. Asanas or these practices of physical exercises is a very wee bit, is one one-twenty fourth of one of them. ‘Ha’ and ‘Tha’, Ha means the sun and Tha means the moon. So both are considered in Hatha Yoga. Because we are not only physical beings. We are [a] physical being, we are mental being, we are emotional being, Read More …

Shri Bhairavnath Puja: Bhairava protects the Left Side Garlate (Italy)

Shri Bhairavanath puja. Garlate ashram, Lecco (Italy), 6 August 1989. Today, we have gathered here to do puja to Bhairavanath. I think we have not understood the significance of Bhairavanath who runs up and down on the Ida Nadi. Ida Nadi is the nadi of Chandrama, is of the moon. So this is a channel for us to cool down. So the work of Bhairavanath ji is to cool us down. For example, people have a hot temper with their ego, with their liver, whatever it is, and if a person is in a big temper, then Bhairavanath plays tricks on that person to cool him down. He organizes everything under his own control with ganas’ help, with Ganapati’s help, to cool down your temperament, to give you a balance. So, if somebody is a very hot-tempered person and he crosses all the limits of his temper, then somehow or other, Bhairavanath will organise, also with the help of Hanumana, to show that this stupidity of anger is no good. So, for example, people who are depressed or who become left-sided, Hanumana tries to help them to come out of it, no doubt, but also Bhairavanath helps them very much more to come out of it. Now a person who is left-sided cannot be collective. It is very difficult for a person who is very left-sided, who is all the time feeling very sad, unhappy and worried, cannot enjoy the fun of collectivity. While a hot-tempered person, a right-sided person, Read More …

The hall, the acoustics, the audience and the public UNCLEAR[] is here is so beautiful that one would be inspired to sing, to organize. But here I am not concerned with this hall, I am concerned with another hall which has limitless capacity which has still more beautiful acoustics, and a very public system that is your heart.

Why no religion can stop us from doing something sinful? Naples (Italy)

1989 – 0508 Public Program, Naples, Italy I bow to all the seekers of Truth. Just now in the television, they asked me a question. That how many, there are so many people why have they come here? I said, in the modern times, there has been a category of people who are born who are seeking Truth. A poet hundred years back or Willium Blake has called them as ‘Men of God will be coming and they will themselves become saints and they will have power to make others saints’. So, you are here to know the Truth. The Truth that is absolute. For example, in these modern times we have so many choices. The machinery has brought out so many things, the science has given so many alternatives. Also, we do not know how far it go. People follow different ideologies and different religions but they find that no religion can stop them from doing something sinful or wrong. So one realizes that there is some sort of a mistakes somewhere and the mistake is very simple that UNCLEAR[] all religions you must seek the eternal and keep the transitory in its own limitations. All the religions have said that you have to be born again and you have to know yourself. But it does not work out. In every religion there is fight going on. They follow the same prophet, the same person but still there is a fight gong on. And if it is the truth, Read More …

SYogi: [Presenter – Italian]  SYogi: [Presenter – Italian] Please don’t take pictures during Shri Mataji’s speech. At the end you can do what you like but not during the speech because it may disturb the audience.  SYogi: [Presenter – Italian]  SYogi: [Presenter – Italian]    I bow to all the seekers of Truth. And the time has come for all of us to find out the Absolute Truth. We follow religions like Christianity, Hinduism, other religions – so many are there – Sikhism but there is no binding force on us.      Shri  Mataji: There is no binding force that we should be righteous, that we should be joy ourselves. Anyone can do any sin, can do any harm. For Christ just talked about love. The main point we have missed in every religion, is very simple. Every religion has said one thing common that, “You must seek the Eternal and live with the transitory in moderation and [UNCLEAR] limitations.” Because transitory things have a built-in capacity to destroy themselves Read More …

In the vocal music we are going to have all bhajans and qawwalis which are of very fast tempo and very strong rhythm. So that you can with the permission of Shri Mataji, you can dance, clap abundance abundant and in abandonment. I am now requesting Prabakar Rao Dhakre to perform on the harmonium he yesterday performed on the violin and also sang unclear() may be harmonium. He plays the harmonium in the accordance unclear(). Shri Mataji: Any questions? Any questions?  I bow to all the seekers of Truth. Yesterday I had said that I would like to have some questions from you and so far, only one question has arrived which is answerable sensible thing about Kundalini awakening. She has asked that she has read in many books that Kundalini awakening can be very dangerous for people if they are not ready. It is said by people who have no authority to raise the Kundalini. First of all, the person who has to raise the Kundalini has to be a realized soul, a pure personality. And has to be knowledgeable. If somebody push the fingers in plug and says you get electricity shock, naturally you will. But actually, Kundalini is your individual Mother. When your mother gave you birth, she took all the trouble by herself. She did not trouble you. In the same way Kundalini takes Read More …

Revolution of Love Rome (Italy)

“Revolution of Love”, Public Program. Rome (Italy), 26 October 1987. I bow to all the seekers of love and joy. When we talk of love and joy we have to know that it comes from reality, from the truth. Anything that is false or unreal cannot give you eternal joy. But truth is what it is. You cannot say with your own intelligence, “This is truth and this is not truth.” Everybody when they see the truth has to be the same. The truth cannot be organized, it is what it is. We cannot prophesize or we cannot say, profess that this is truth. We cannot pay money for it. Now as it is, in the process of our evolution that we reveal truth after truth. It is at the epitome of evolution you have to receive the ultimate truth. In the human awareness we live on a relative plane. There is no way to know what is absolute truth. Within us lies the power to take us to that state of absolute. That is what it is, that you are the Spirit. You are not this body, you are not this mind, you are not this ego, you are not these thoughts. What you are is the Spirit. As I told you, to know the Spirit we have to go through the living process. As in our evolutionary state we have come to human state without thinking about it, without putting any effort. In the same way we have Read More …

Interview (Italy)

1987-10-26 Interview, Italy DP-RAW Interviewer: In this dangerous period how can you say that is the blossom time because there is no peace in the world. You said that is the blossom time.  Shri Mataji: Blossom time, yes, blossom time because human beings have evolved to a point where they have to become the fruit.  Interviewer: This is fruit is becoming is realizing… Shri Mataji: Yes, that’s it – Enlightenment Interviewer: How does it start sahaja yoga? How did you discover that you have the power of awaking the Kundalini? Shri Mataji: I had this from my childhood. But I developed a method by which I could give a mass realization. In 1970 I started.  Interviewer: What does he think your husband about going always around the world, teaching sahaja yoga? Shri Mataji: He travels much more than me, he has always travelled much more than me even before I started my work. So now he understands that one has to do the important work.  Interviewer: So, your husband is following sahaja yoga? Shri Mataji: Of course, not only, he is supporting me in everywhere.  Interviewer: How can you manage then your private life with the Sahaja yoga  Shri Mataji: It’s the best because you become so dynamic, and you understand each other much better. Interviewer: The image that you have of the guru, is the guru is always praying in savior, why that you are always joyful and happy. Shri Mataji: If there is a real guru, he should Read More …

“The light of love”, Evening before Diwali Puja Lecco (Italy)

“The light of love”, Evening before Diwali Puja, Lake of Como (Italy), 24 Ottobre 1987. [After the chant.]May God bless you all.And all the blessings of Lakshmi, all the Ashta Lakshmi, is upon you. May God bless you Today we have come here to celebrate a great festival of Deepavali, meaning the rows of lights, or the Festival of Lights. It was to celebrate the coronation of Shri Rama also, that is to say symbolically to celebrate the establishment of a kingdom which has a benevolent administration.Today I find all of you here as the lights sitting before Me and with these lights I feel the Deepavali really celebrated; I see the twinkling of those eyes, twinkling in the eye of that light which is within you. In the lamp of light we have to put something that is soft, like ghee; that’s something very mild and soft, is the love of our heart. And that burns to give this soothing light of love to others.Such a person who has this light of love loves himself as well and emits love for others. I’ve been hearing about the way people used to torture themselves to become saintly. There’s no need at all for Sahaja Yogis, at all, to torture themselves. But to be the light of a higher magnitude they have to be full of love and this love they get it from where? You may say it is from Me. It’s true but the sap of the tree flows Read More …

Press Conference Piacenza (Italy)

Press Conference With Shri Mataji, Piacenza, Italy 24-10-1987 19871023_PressConference_Italy Thank you very much. She is going to give the introduction.  Yogi: unclear()  She wants to know if there unclear(Tuner is the fest time..) that she care about feminine incarnation and she wants to know unclear(how easily) to know about this type of a feminine incarnation. Because it is important to know all the women.  Shri Mataji : with all the ?  Yogi: Women. Shri Mataji: I didn’t follow this.. Yogini : She is asking about the female incarnation of the..role Shri Mataji: See you talk of., we talk of the God Almighty as the Father, and Christ as his Son but we don’t talk about the Mother. How can there be a Father and a Son and no Mother? But there is, the Holy Ghost. That’s the Primordial Mother. That time they did not want to talk about the Mother of Christ. Because Christ has a job is to be done that he had to get himself crucified. But if they had known that the mother is also very powerful, they would attack her. And though Christ has forgiven the people who crucified him he would never had forgiven the people who would have attacked his mother. He has eleven powers of destruction. And with anyone of them he could have finished all of them. But there was a special purpose in getting crucified. The message of Christ life is resurrection not crucifixion. Now in these modern times when the Read More …

This Modern Age Teatro dell'Elfo, Milan (Italy)

Public Program, “This Modern Age”. Teatro dell’Elfo, Milan (Italy), 22 October 1987. [Sahaja yogis sing Namostute, Ciuri Ciuri, Powada, Ai Giri Nandini Mahishasura Mardini] I bow to all the seekers of truth and joy. I am gratified to see all of you enjoying the music of My children here. They sing in pure joy. And that is what one has to understand that everything can be only enjoyed if there is purity. That purity comes with us when you are born. We are not sinners when we are children, we are innocent people when we are children. But as we grow, with our own intelligence, seeking, we try to develop a kind of an awareness which gets entangled into wrong things. What we think freedom has no guidelines, is no absolute value to it [What we think freedom]. And there is no absolute way of judgment. We live in the world of relativity. That is human awareness. Now I am here to give you a message that you have all the possibility of becoming the absolute. You may follow any philosophy, any religion, anything that conditions your mind, but you cannot get your weaknesses. Out of fear we may do many things, but it’s not built in within us that we are righteous, that we are generous, that we are virtuous. Now you see these young people here, and there are many like this, thousands and thousands of them all over the world. In their seeking of truth they were Read More …

Advice to Italian Yogis Rome Ashram - Nirmala House, Rome (Italy)

Advice To Italian Yogis, Rome Ashram – Nirmala House, Rome (Italy) 20-04-1987 [Guido translates in between whilst Shri Mataji speaks] Shri Mataji: So I was talking to Germans and it took some time. Italy is doing very well in Europe and I think there’s a competition between Italy and Austria. Now, My complete desire is to come down here for the program some time, for a little more time than normal. But this year [unclear] I have been very, very busy and I’m also going to Australia, which I did not do last time. But this visit was so spontaneous and it was just organised, I think through your great desire and the Easter: both together has worked it out.  It’s efficiency of the Italian Sahaja Yogis that they managed the whole thing in such a short time, otherwise it’s not an easy thing. People are already making plans in England for Guru Puja. So, it is the readiness to get divine help that works out everything. Also, Italians are very lucky to have a wise leader like Guido. [applause] But you must understand that the negativity can come any time and can harm. Now, the gentleman who took over from him was really affected by the negative force of Don. Don’s wife has been to sorcerers and things like that and, first time she touched My feet, My feet went into a funny cramp – I couldn’t understand. But then when I asked her, she had to confess and Read More …

All-pervading power has got all the telecommunication Sala della Provincia di Milano, Milan (Italy)

Public Program Day 1, Sala della Provincia di Milano, Milan (Italy) [Introduction in Italian by a Sahaja Yogi until min 33:51] I bow to all the seekers of truth. Already now you know about the subtle centers that are in the spinal cord, also in the brain. So when the Kundalini raises from its seat from the triangular bone and pierces through the fontanel bone area which was a soft bone in your childhood it again becomes soft and then the Grace which is a very subtle energy surrounding us, which is all-pervading, starts pouring down the bliss. Kundalini is the reflection of the Holy Ghost. Holy Ghost is the power of God, we can call it the Primordial Mother. We have a Divine Trinity but we do not talk about the mother. You have father – the God, then you have son – the God and the Holy Ghost. How can a father have a son without a mother? So from the very beginning it’s an attack on the motherhood and that is why you know that it is not allowed for women to be the priest also. But in India or in all other scriptures it is believed that it is the Primordial Mother who has created this universe. That is the Holy Ghost is the Mother, it is not a dove but a mother.  So this Primordial Mother which is the power of God resides as a reflection in the triangular bone which Greeks accepted as Athina, Read More …

The problem lies with human beings Rome (Italy)

Public program, day 2 – Rome Italy, 10-05-1986 I bow to all the seekers of truth. I am also very sorry today that because of some procession we got delayed and I hope you don’t mind. And that it was for peace. It’s very surprising that by agitating how can we have peace? If you stop one thing they start another thing. First they will have wars then at the peace time they will prepare for wars. They cannot sit down without quarrelling. The greater nations they become, the greater quarrelsome they become. This is the problem, no use agitating. Already they have had one shock and they have to have another one. But even if they stop atomic energy they’ll start something else. Problem is to be attacked basically. The problem lies with human beings not with atomic energy.  Human beings do not know the power of love. They have only one way of relating to another – is some sort of a hatred. You must have heard of the relationship of love-hate, its funny staff, isn’t it? But human beings are not yet complete. That’s what I told you yesterday, they have to be complete to understand what they are up to. As I told you yesterday we have to be the whole, evolve to be the whole. Now how can we quarrel when we are at the whole? Like this finger won’t quarrel with this finger, is it? Because it knows that it is a part and Read More …

Now the time has come for you to experience the Truth Rome (Italy)

Public Programme Day 1, Rome, Italy 09-05-1986 I bow to all the seekers of Truth.But you have to ask only for the Truth and nothing else.Our idea about Truth is also based upon our concepts that we have got from somebody else. Also, it might be due to some sort of our ego-oriented concept that we have created ourselves.But Truth is what it is and you cannot make it.So, if I say to you something, you don’t have to blindly believe me. But now the time has come for you to experience the Truth. In your evolutionary process now, from amoeba stage to this stage, you have arrived, whatever you have achieved is felt on your central nervous system. But it has to admitted that human beings have not reached their complete stage. The purpose for which they were made human beings is not yet established, otherwise there would have been no problems of any kind. Maybe that, so far, it was not possible to manifest the Truth in an en-masse way. And maybe that there were only very few flowers that came on the Tree of Life till today. But nowadays, as you see, there are so many seekers and what are they seeking is the Truth.First of all, you have to know that you cannot put in any effort for that. You cannot pay for it. The Divine does not understand money, nor you can conceive it, or you can preach about it; it has to happen to Read More …

You become the Spirit spontaneously Scuola Grande San Giovanni Evangelista, Venice (Italy)

Public Program, Venice, Italy, 07-05-1986 I bow to all the seekers of truth. It was such a great joy for me to come to Venice to meet you again. And I know there are many seekers in this place and they are trying to seek the truth. Without finding the truth and without becoming that, we cannot talk of peace. The peace resides within us, and the human beings who talk of peace themselves are not peaceful and how can they bring peace when they are not in that state themselves? To find the truth we feel we have to put in some efforts, because you are seekers and you are frantically trying to find the truth you go to all kinds of extremes. You’ve been to drugs, you’ve been to fake gurus, you have done that whatever a human being can do. But I have come to tell you, you don’t have to do anything of that kind. As you have become a human being from the amoeba stage, spontaneously, in the same way you become the Spirit spontaneously. It is nothing artificial that can work it out, or human endeavour that can bring forth the result. The one who has created us has already made all the arrangements for our ascent. With all His love and attention, He has very delicately made all these beautiful chakras within us. At human awareness, we do not know what lies within us, we do not know what organs there are in Read More …

Only thing we have to accept that still we have to know much more Milan (Italy)

1986-05-05 Public Program 1 in Milano [Completion of an introduction in Italian until min 02:36] I bow to all the seekers of truth.  So far we have heard so much about the truth. All the great prophets, seers and incarnations have taught that the truth can be only realized if you are born again. This happening as people have put before us has been a very artificial one. Just by having a concept or a belief that you are born again you cannot become that. In the process of our evolution we have become human beings and if we have to become something higher it has to be in the same process of evolution. But we do not think about how did we get to this position, what is the energy within us which has made us human beings. We are not aware of this energy within us. We take our human life for granted. And even the scientists do not explain how we have evolved.  Now in human awareness you are not aware of your organs in the body, till you feel the pain in the stomach you don’t know it exists there. Now these centres are existing in a subtler form and till you become that subtler being you cannot see them. These are the centres which exist on your parasympathetic nervous system. And for doctors it is very little known what is parasympathetic. They say it is autonomous nervous system but if you ask them who is this Read More …

Diwali Puja: It’s only the Sahaja Yogis who can blacken or enlighten the Name of God Almighty Tivoli (Italy)

Diwali Puja, Tivoli, Rome, 17 November 1985. Today we have assembled here to celebrate the Diwali, the Deepavali. Actually, only after Sahaja Yoga started, the real Diwali is taking shape. We had many beautiful lamps, and we had lot of oil to burn, but there was no spark, to enlighten the deepas. And the wick, as you call it – is called as bati in Hindi language- is like your Kundalini, so the Kundalini had to meet the spark. The beautiful lamps were all a waste, purposeless, pointless. And this is the great blessings in modern times, that so many lights are enlightened and we are having a Deepavali of human hearts. When you become the light, you don’t worry about the lamp, how it looks, how it is to be made, it’s all done. You just have to worry about the flame, about the oil, because it’s the oil that burns and gives light. In Sanskrit language – which is the language of the Gods – the oil is called as “snigdh”, ‘snigdha’; is something that is soft but is ‘snigdha’. And ‘sneha’ means ‘friendship of love.’ And the poets in other [Indian] languages have used this word, in different way calling it ‘neha’. They have sung the praise of this love. Every poet, every Saint has used this word in their beautiful poetry, whether they were in separation or they were in the meeting, in the yoga, in the union. This love is the thing that gives the Read More …

Talk to Sahaja Yogis: Racism, Evening Program, Eve of Diwali Tivoli (Italy)

Evening before Diwali, Tivoli, 16 November 1985. You see only I am understanding and we are understanding from Maharashtra and this is to be done by many people so it’s different type. But a here they are saying that you should surrender to the Mother, that you have been to Kolhapur to the temple of Mahalakshmi. And you know the Mahalakshmi is the central path of Sushumna and there they go and pray to the Kundalini Ambe. That now you have awakened in the Mahalakshmi Temple. They go and sing there. That’s the Mahalakshmi temple and there they praise the Kundalini because Mahalakshmi is there but in Mahalakshmi’s channel of the central path the Kundalini has to awaken. So today today it’s the Ambe. It’s surprising that in the Mahalakshmi Temple that they go and sing this song of Amba, isn’t it? But the reason is that they want that in the Temple of Mahalakshmi only the Kundalini can rise so they are addressing Amba. That’s the beauty of this song. You follow my point. You extend it. Today is the great day my joy knows no bounds.[To Gregoire] Translate it. [Laughter]Gregoire: In which language Shri Mataji? French? Italian?Shri Mataji: Italian. I do not know how to thank people of U.K. and some of them who took such a great lead to manifest this new collectivity. Of course, I do not want to name them because they will feel embarrassed.But the whole thing started on a very low note and Read More …

This is the most important time Venice (Italy)

This is the most important time, Venice, Italy, 1985-05-22 I bow to all the seekers of truth. People told me that in Venice, there are many seekers. But I did not know that there are so many, I am very happy to meet you all. Now at this time we have to know, that this is the most important time for all the seekers; because this is the time when you have to get your seeking, yourself, your Spirit. In the history of seeking, we have never had so many seekers on this earth. The reason is, this is the special time that has come, where you have to get your blessings of your age old seeking. Whatever you have heard about the kundalini is the knowledge of the roots. The tree of the human civilization has grown too big and we must seek our roots, otherwise all this that is developed can be destroyed in no time. We have to ask ourselves a question, “ Why we are created from amoeba to this stage of a human being ?” The second question should be asked to ourselves, we see day the miracles of living force around us but we have never felt the existence of it. When you ask these two questions, the third question comes, to our mind, “ Why are we here? What are we doing here? What are we supposed to seek? What is the truth?” In our search we have become human beings, but beyond Read More …
