How to receive the self-knowledge? Hong Kong (China)

1996-03-09 Public Talk Hong Kong Shri Mataji: I bow to all the seekers of truth! At the very outset, We have to know that truth is, We cannot change it. You cannot transform it, and You cannot purchase it. You have to feel it in your Central Nervous System, Which is called in Sanskrit as ‘Bodh’ from where the word Buddha has come. The word they have used for the saints, on the Central Nervous System [unclear]. They are used for Veda…The Ancient Vedic Scriptures. Whatever I am going to tell you today …You need not accept it [unclear].Because We have suffered a lot, all because of this blind faith. Once it proves, it’s better to accept it as honest people because it is for your benevolence, for the benevolence of the country, for the benevolence of the whole world…Because this knowledge is coming from India, some people really don’t like it. But the other cultures of the western cultures, have [unclear/grown so ] big without going to its roots. If the Indians can learn science, from the west, Why not the science of the divine be learnt from the Indians. And this is the special time for seeking the truth…It’s all predicted. While people are misled, by the wrong type of marketing people. This is divine knowledge, can not be marketed. It is the knowledge of divine love. So, there is the power within you, already placed in the triangular bone called the Sacrum Bone. And the Greeks also Read More …

Bring your attention beyond the mind Shih Chien Hall, Taipei (Taiwan)

Public program, Taipei, Taiwan 06-03-1996 [1:03:50]  I bow to all the seekers of truth. At the very outset, you have to know that truth is what it is. We cannot change it, we cannot transform it. But we have to feel the truth on our central nervous system. That means ‘Bodh’, in Sanskrit, from where the word ‘Buddha’ has come. Or ‘Vida’, means, from where the ‘Vedas’ have come, means, to feel it on your central nervous system. It is not just a mental feat, or a mental understanding about truth. Because you should not shock when I say that mind is a myth. By our reactions outside, through our conditioning, and our ego, we have made this mind. Which is nothing but bubbles of thoughts. Brain is the [light].  Now when we are at a mental level, we can create any ideas according to our conditioning or our ego. Like Hitler felt that he has to destroy all the Jews. And he did it. So this mind goes either to the right or to the left. That means it goes to the future or to your past. All the thoughts come to us from our future or the past. One thought rises, it falls down, another thought rises and falls down. And we are jumping on the cusp of these thoughts. But we are not in the present. And the present is the reality. In China, we had Laotse, who talked of nothing but Sahaja Yoga. Also, in Japan, Read More …

How far you are evolved within? Jingguang New World Hotel-Manfulou, Beijing (China)

Public Program. Beijing (China), 13 September 1995. Very much enamored to know that you all are very much interested in Sahaja Yoga. The first person who is sitting here and who had the honor to meet in Austria, and I was surprised how he was know all about Sahaja Yoga. In your country you had very great philosophers once upon a time. Of course you believe in humanism; but there was another great, great philosopher who was called as Lao-Tse, of a very high spirituality like a great incarnation of a Master. What He has written about, described about Yangtze River is very interesting, because I went through the Yangtze River Myself. And He calls it Tao. Tao. Is actually He is talking about Kundalini. He was a poet, so whatever He has described is rather subtle. And maybe they must have thought that it’s better to understand other people than Tao written by Lao-Tse. But all over the world you will find it is Tao which people respect very much, and they like to always interpret the meaning of the word “Tao.” Really symbolically He has described that this river Yangtze is a difficult river to go through. And the surroundings, the banks of this river, are extremely beautiful. You won’t believe for twelve hours I was sitting outside watching the beauty of the banks. I’ve never seen such beautiful mountains, trees, and the whole movement of nature is like an artist painting something. And all your paintings, most Read More …

Now you have to have understanding because you see, you are not so many, they are 200 people. So the responsibility is on every one of you.

So it will be a little cooler [UNCLEAR]. See what I have seen that when people come, some people don’t know how to behave properly and start saying things: you Read More …

Collective mistakes originate here within yourself Hong Kong (China)

Public Program. Hong Kong (China), 22 April 1994. I bow to all the seekers of Truth. At the very outset, we have to know that Truth is what it is. We cannot change it, we cannot conceptualize it. Unfortunately, we cannot also know it with this human awareness. Now whatever, I’m going to tell you, you need not believe in blindfolded. We have already suffered a lot by believing things blindfolded. We must keep, our mind open like scientist, and whatever I am telling you should be treated like a hypothesis. But if it is accepted, blindfolded it is of no use. But if it is proved, then, you have to accept it as honest people. Because it is for the benevolence of your being. It is for the benevolence of your family, your country, and above all, it is, for the benevolence of the whole world. Most of the problems, of this world come from human beings. And, human beings have their problems when these centers are out of gear. All your physical, mental, emotional, spiritual, political, economic…every sort of problem comes from the same. Some come from collective mistakes, but they all originate here within yourself. Now, this subtle center exist, within every human being, whether you’re Chinese, Japanese, Indian, anything. And this power of Kundalini, resides, in the, triangular bone which we call as ‘Sacrum.’ That means that, the Greeks knew that this was a sacred bone since long. The real Truth is that, you are not Read More …

Blind faith doesn’t lead you to enlightenment Chientan Youth Activity Center, Taipei (Taiwan)

1990-1110 Public Program in Taipei I bow to all the seekers of truth. At a very outset, I have to say that truth is what it is. We cannot organize it ,and we cannot conceptualize it with our human awareness. Now whatever they have told you, whatever I’m going to tell you, you have to listen to it with an open mind of a scientist, you should not believe me blindly. Blind faith doesn’t lead you to enlightenment, but you please keep your mind open and treat whatever I’m saying or they’re saying as hypothesis, and then if it is proved, then as honest people, you have to accept it. The truth is very simple. The first thing is the fundamental that you are not this body, you are not this mind, you are not this intellect or this conditioning or ego, but you are pure spirit. And the second truth is that there is an all pervading power of God’s love which does all living work. For example, these flowers so beautiful here have come out of one little seed.
