Talk and Treatment at Vienna Airport and Departure NH Vienna Airport Conference Center, Vienna (Austria)

Talk at Vienna Airport. Austria, 10 July 1996. In Bucharest, there were equal number like you people are here, and I didn’t know how to take out My attention away from them, it was so much touching to see people so much full of love. It’s a very powerful centre we have I think, Bucharest is, because we have some very great musicians there, as you are here. Also, they have, they told Me twenty-one doctors who are practicing Sahaja Yoga. So many scientists, very open-minded people, very open-minded. And it has spread so fast, there were 6,000 people in the stadium, we could not have it in a hall, so stadium, and everyone got Realization. I was telling them the General of the military hospitals, he came to see Me personally, he got his Realization first, then he came to see Me. So humble he was, all the time he was worried how Sahaja Yoga will spread – “What are you going to do?” “How long will it take?” I mean such, sweet, sweet things he asked Me. I was amazed. This man was meeting Me only yesterday, he came to the program, got his Realization, today he is very anxious to do so much for Sahaja Yoga. So, I said, “Why don’t you come to Italy?” He said “All right, “If you call me I’ll come. I’ll come to Pune wherever You will say, to Bombay anyway”. Is very surprising, also in Bulgaria, where we went to Sofia, Read More …

Be aware of your pure desire Vienna (Austria)

Public Program. Vienna (Austria), 19 July 1994. I bow to all the seekers of truth.At the very outset, I have to say that truth is what it is. You cannot change it, you cannot transform it, and it cannot compromise with you. It is, it has been, it will be the same. Whatever I have to tell you tonight you need not accept it blindfolded. We have had already very big problems with these blind faiths. You should have an open mind like a scientist and treat this talk as a hypothesis. But if it is proved then you have to accept as honest people. Because it is for your benevolence, it is for the benevolence of your country, it is for the benevolence of the whole world. The truth is that you are not this body, this mind, these emotions, intelligence, ego or your conditionings, but you are the pure Spirit. We see beautiful flowers around us, it’s actually a miracle. But we take it for granted. If we ask a doctor, “Who runs our heart?” he will say, “The autonomous nervous system.” But who is this ‘auto’? This they cannot answer. And who does all this living work? Who brought forth our evolution? There is no answer. The second truth is that there is a All-Pervading Power of Divine Love. It is a subtle energy which does all this living work. Now, unless and until we evolve more than what we are today, it’s not possible with this Read More …

Talk to Sahaja Yogis Vienna International Airport, Vienna (Austria)

Speech at the airport Schwechat. Vienna (Austria) 18 July 1994. I’m very happy to see you all here. It’s really nice to meet you all like this, because in Cabella I never get a chance to talk to anyone. I’m sorry I’ve had some very bad reports which I must tell you. It’s very important. I always used to praise Austrians very much that they are so many and so good, very good Sahaja Yogis. But the reports I have are horrible. Other people from other countries have told Me that, “Mother, You are praising them, but You better warn them. Because they are not taking Sahaja Yoga so seriously as they should have done. Moreover some people who come to Cabella go on talking against some other group. And they told Me there are groups formed among these Sahaja Yogis who are influenced by these groups and their grudges and their complaints. They’ve become very mental, they want to solve their problem mentally. This was a very big shock for Me. And they went to such a limit to say that, “Mother, this time You shouldn’t allow them to have any Puja.” I said, “All of them are not like that.” They said, “But still. Quite a lot of them indulge in such cheapish things that we are surprised.” I must tell you one lady came all the way to Taiwan to complain against Hamid. And she told Harald, who is a very sensible Sahaja Yogi that she has Read More …

Talk to Sahaja Yogis After Diwali Vienna (Austria)

Talk to Sahaja Yogis After Diwali I’m sorry it was so such a late time I had to come here. I had to make the food and just after dinner I came and I think the ashram is also very far away. I have to just tell you that we have had a very, very successful tour of South America. And as you must have seen the people of Romania, the people there were extremely surrendered, very surrendered people. And everywhere we had two to three thousand people and everywhere we had more than five hundred people for follow on. So you can imagine, in this short time, this is only the second time I went to Colombia, and we already have got six hundred Sahaja Yogis there. So they are very surrendered people, and though there is so called poverty, in their heart they are very good, very surrendered and they are very fast for accepting pure knowledge. While in the West, as you have seen, they are very slow to accept pure knowledge and also go on doubting till some time. I don’t know what is the reason for this. Why is it that people from countries, which are not democratic to this extent, some of them have been just despotic and quite poor. Even Rio was quite a poor country I would say, where I went. Brazilia is another one, which is coming up. And I was amazed that in Brazil the President of the Senate himself Read More …

Reality has to be known by ascending to another state of Spirit Hofburg Palace, Vienna (Austria)

Public Program. Vienna (Austria), 27 July 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 imagine about it, think about it or conceptualize it. Also unfortunately, at this human level we cannot feel it. We have to become a subtler being to feel our subtle being. We have to be the Spirit. Otherwise whatever we think about it is not reality. Reality has to be known by ascending to another state of Spirit. Now, let us know what is the truth. The truth is you are not this body, this mind – this is not your conditionings, nor your ego, emotions, but it is pure Spirit. The second truth is that there is an all-pervading Power of Divine Love, which does all the living work. We see these beautiful flowers – it’s a miracle, but we take it for granted. Look at our eyes, which is a miracle itself – it’s a camera. Look at our brain, which is such a computer. But we take it for granted and do not think about it. Who does this work? Who runs our heart? We call it in medical terminology that autonomous nervous system runs the heart. But who is this auto? All this living work is done by this all-pervading Power of Divine Love. Whatever I’m telling you, you need not take it blindfolded. But you have to keep your mind open like a scientist Read More …

Because if you think this is a very important work we are doing, you have to work it out. Also, we must be capable, worthy of it. Worthy of the name of Sahaja Yoga isn’t it? [Phone rings].

Visit to Austria Programme and Departure Vienna (Austria)

Informal talk, visit to Austria, departure day, Vienna, 25/10/1991 Sahaja Yogi: Shri Mataji ist so glücklich, dass Sie heute mit uns sein kann. [Shri Mataji is so happy that she can be with us today] Shri Mataji: It is Hamid, you see, who managed everything. [Applause] You see, he said that: “Mother, I have come here, but I feel for all the Austrians that have not met you, they will have to meet you.” So I said: “It’s not easy; I have to have a visa.” [Laughter] And then he said: “No Mother, you don’t require a visa in Austria.” I said: “You do require, I know that.” Then I thought that, if his desire is so strong, and a desire of a Sahaja Yogi, it always masters me. [Laughter] And so I said: “Let me see in the passport.” And amazingly [Applause] And it was there till December 4th and multiple entry of the thing, nicely allowed. And it’s, I couldn’t believe my eyes. It was given in June! I don’t know how Austrian government gave me for six months with multiple entries. So also the tickets were done and everything was perfect and I’m here to see you all. Actually your desires are very powerful. I have no desires, as you know. I told them a story about once it was a guru puja in India, and I said that, I mean, they said: “What should we give?” I said: “Give me just a shawl but no sari, Read More …

The power which achieves the state of Spirit Vienna (Austria)

Public Program Day 2. Vienna (Austria), 6 August 1991. Shri Mataji: May God bless you! I bow to all the seekers of truth. I’ve told you yesterday that truth is what it is. We cannot conceptualize it, we cannot imagine it and we cannot know it with our human awareness. So we have to become a subtler being that we have to become the Spirit. Only when we become the Spirit then we will understand that this whole creation is looked after by a very subtle power of love of God Almighty. So to become a subtler being, within us is placed a mechanism about which we told you yesterday. Today I want to tell you about this power which achieves the state of Spirit and about the Spirit. This power resides in the Sacrum, in the triangular bone. And is the reflection of the Holy Ghost. While the Spirit is the reflection of God Almighty in our heart, the Spirit is the one which is just watching, like God Almighty. And the Power of God Almighty, His power of desire is the Holy Ghost, is the Primordial Mother. They talk of Father, the God, Son, the God, and nothing about the mother. How can you have Father and Son and no Mother? But they avoid it, somehow, I don’t know for what reason to talk of the Primordial Mother. But in all other scriptures there is a description of the Primordial Mother, like Athena. Atha in Sanskrit means the Read More …

How to understand the Absolute Vienna (Austria)

Public Program Day 1. CA-Tent, Vienna (Austria), 5 August 1991. I bow to all the seekers of truth. At the very outset we have to know that truth is what it is. We cannot conceptualize it, we cannot change it, it is beyond human awareness. That means, at human awareness we cannot know the absolute truth. This is the reason why we have different theories which go against each other and we fight. Absolute truth can only be known if you become a higher person. That you have to become the Spirit. This is the fundamental truth about you that you are not this body, not this mind, not this ego, nor your conditionings but you are the Spirit. Unless and until you become absolute you cannot understand the absolute. This second truth is that there is a subtle All-pervading Power around us which does all living work. We see these beautiful flowers here, we see them, we take them for granted. They have come out of a small little seed differently. How it happens, we don’t think. Look at our eyes, what a beautiful micro-camera it is, but we just take it for granted. We have also taken our evolution for granted, from amoeba stage to this human stage. Unless and until we human beings find out the truth through this evolutionary process of becoming the Spirit, none of our problems are going to be solved. And it is very easy. Sahaja means “born with you”. And Yoga means, Read More …

Talk to Sahaja Yogis Vienna (Austria)

Talk to Sahaja Yogis, Vienna, Austria, 1991-08-04 Shri Mataji: It was really very, very nice of all of you to come to the airport. And all the sadness that I had when I left Belgium has disappeared. It is a very creditable thing that Sahaja Yoga has taken such dimensions in Vienna.  Vienna is a very great, important place in Europe, as you know, a long time back. But Marie Antoinette moved here from Prussia with her [unclear] and her administrative powers. For Me also, Vienna is something very important. And spiritually, we can say it is the spiritual part of Germany. And the great sense about it is that if Germans can take to it, anything can be germinated as they say.  And that’s what it is, such a great thing to see. Such a blessing upon this Earth that you people have taken to Sahaja Yoga. It is not an easy thing to tell you – Sahaja Yoga, normally. People who are so much in the modern world, professing [unclear] and so-called well educated and that is how [unclear]. In [unclear] I should say.  But despite all that, here suddenly you find so many people who have not only understood Sahaja Yoga, but it’s gone to their hearts, their lives and they feel it is so important. Also, you have all taken the responsibility. Because it is now spreading through you to Hungary, and also to Czechoslovakia. Something so remarkable that you have been able to achieve. This Read More …

Evening Program Vienna (Austria)

Evening Program, Vienna, Austria 1990-07-21 Shanta Mavshi: Shri Mataji wants that I should explain the meaning of this song to you all. I have already explained to the students who were learning. This song is mainly to say that you may call God by different names, but He is one and the same. So you may call Him Ram, you may call Him Bhrama, you may call Him Kana or Mahadev. Kana is Krishna, Shri Krishna and Mahadev is Lord Shankara’s name is Mahadev, Parasnaath. Parasnaath is the name of Mahaviras, that is those who follow Jainism. They may call Him by the name of Parasnaath. Shri Mataji: And he has a Kundalini on top of His head. Parasnaath was one of the first, the first, the [unclear]. And this one was the last. Shanta Mavshi: Yes.So and also some people even call Him by the name of Brahma, but all this is in one and that is Sarkala Brahma. Shri Mataji: He is the Paramchaitanya, completely. [unclear] self, itself. Shanta Mavshi: Yes, [unclear]. Now Bhaganabhe, the Kahavatana, that is this external forms of worship may be different. Shri Mataji: [Hindi/marathi] Different utensils are made [unclear] Shanta Mavshi: but the mud is the same. Shri Mataji: Mud is the same. Shanta Mavshi: Yes, and you may see it in different shapes. The shapes are different, but the material is the same. Shri Mataji: It’s the ruptika. Shanta Mavshi: And, So if we divide God into so many forms, it is Read More …

Interview about Sickness Meli Ashram, Vienna (Austria)

[Interview] Interviewer: And one question still please, is sickness. For me, it is very difficult to understand, what is the sense of sickness for one who.. I don’t know, what’s the reason, that… and how it can be healed with Kundalini. Shri Mataji: You see, sickness comes to you as I told you, through our centers getting exhausted. As this is one center, all right, on the left side, left sympathetic, and right sympathetic, and they join together, this is the center. So, we are using the energy of this center, that is limited, for our purpose, anything. Supposing, I’ll give you an example of – a very good example – of one’s Swadishthan chakra. It’s the second center, which looks after the aortic plexus – in the medical terminology. But it’s not complete, I mean it’s one of the parts. Now the work of the Swadishthan chakra, according to Sahaja Yoga, which has worked of course wonders with this theory, that it gives energy for the replacement of the brain cells. Because we never think about it. We are using the brain all the time we don’t think, how it is replaced, even within the medical science, they don’t think about it. So one of the work it has got, it moves here. And also it has to look after your liver, it has to look after your pancreas, it has to look after spleen, it has to look after your kidneys, it has to also look after the Read More …

The giver of the absolute truth is the Spirit Vienna (Austria)

Public Program Day 2. Vienna (Austria), 19 June 1990. I bow to all the seekers of truth. Yesterday I told you that we have to know the absolute truth. Absolute truth is the truth which cannot be challenged and cannot have a second opinion. But the giver of this absolute truth is the Spirit. The Spirit resides in your heart. Before Realization your Spirit is a witness of what you are doing. But after Realization the energy of Kundalini ignites the flame of Spirit in such a manner that your attention gets enlightened. So the Spirit is the source of light. Not this light that burns, but the light that soothes. The Spirit is the collective being within us. It is like a reflection of the Sun in different places, specially in the lakes where you can see it clearly, the God Almighty is reflected in all of us. He is reflected in everything that is being created. But the reflectors are very poor, some of them are just like stones. Only in a saint reflection of God is clear, because it is the reflection of one God Almighty, it is in everybody and so it is the collective being. So after Realization you can feel another person on your fingertips and you can feel yourself also on your fingertips. You can ask any question, like a computer the answer comes, yes or no, by means of vibrations. Once you are realized, once you are connected with the Divine power Read More …

A subtler consciousness Vienna (Austria)

Public Program. Vienna (Austria), 18 June 1990. I bow to all the seekers of truth. At the outset we should know that truth is what it is and we cannot change it, we cannot organize it. And the truth cannot be known only at the human awareness. It requires a subtler consciousness to know the truth. So what is the truth? The truth is that you are not this body and you are not your mind, you are not these emotions. Nor you are your conditionings or your ego. You are pure Spirit. And the second truth is that all the living work is done by a subtle power which is called as Paramchaitanya in Sanskrit language. Or we can say by the All pervading power of Divine Love. We take all living work for granted. We see these beautiful flowers that have come out of very small seeds, I mean, we never even think how this work has taken place. Then we see such a balance in the nature. A apple tree grows up to a height, a rosebush grows up to a height – who controls it? So when we try to think about it, we reach a point that we do not know everything. Also we do not know the absolute truth. Truth has to be one, but there are so many opinions, so many ideologies, so many religions, so many quarrels. Why should there be any quarrels if they are based on truth? So whatever I Read More …

Talk to Sahaja Yogis: On Films Vienna (Austria)

Talk to Sahaja Yogis, Austria, Viena, 26-07-1989 Yogi: I don’t know Shri Mataji. Shri Mataji: The one you have used for your posters I have not seen that before. I don’t know who has done it. Maybe some Austrians. Austrians are very good, enlargement is so good you know. Very beautiful, as if it feels like you are sitting there. Do you have very good cameras or Yogis: I think the reason is Unclear(heart) Shri Mataji Shri Mataji: Or a very good heart. That must be the reason. Hello, look at the excitement. Yogi: He is from Yugoslavia. Shri Mataji: Hello, so going to Yugoslavia now? Hindi –  Kush nazar aarahahai : they look happy. you like Hini – chana: Chickpeas? You like chana? Let her come. Come. They all love chana. What will you have then? Will you like cashew nuts? or Nothing? no? feeling shy. So we don’t get out there. Unclear() Hindi – Kitna kush mizaaz: looks happy. So now what do you want? you want chana? Come along, what do you want? Chana? Come. Take chana. Chana. Have it. Come along. Hindi – daanth he nahhe hain unke dohee daanth hain: he doesn’t have teeth, he has only 2 teeth. Yogi: Shri Mataji maybe she had few because she just had breakfast. So I think it’s time, Unclear(you, she) should not delay Unclear(), lunch.    Shri Mataji: Alright, alright. Yes yes yes. Hindi – dekhanahe jata bacha girjate hain. Dada(grandfather) this is your dada? Dada yes Read More …

Arrival and Talk to Sahaja Yogis: Whatever is recorded should be accepted Meli Ashram, Vienna (Austria)

Arrival Speech. Ashram Melichargasse, Vienna (Austria), 25 July 1989. It was a wonderful time that we had in Italy when we went to that lake and I’m sure you all must have enjoyed it. But all these seminars and tours and all that are for our understanding of the spiritual urge within us and that exists in others. It is more meeting the other Sahaja Yogis together to know about other Sahaja Yogis from other countries and to enjoy the Spirit, which is so collective, because if everybody has the reflection of the Spirit, their company would enhance our joy and would give us a greater depth. See a person who is shallow, lives with himself, enjoys his selfishness and is all the time worried about himself. That’s the sign of a very shallow person. But as he starts becoming deeper and deeper, then he starts thinking of other people around. Then he goes further. He starts thinking about how this world was made, why is he on this Earth, what is the purpose of his life? And when such questions start troubling him he starts onto the path of Mahalakshmi. And when you are on the path of Mahalakshmi you get lost, you think it’s a kind of endless, bottomless pit where you cannot understand anything and you are just feeling that you have to seek something and to find out something. So when you find – we have these groups together where you find many of us are Read More …

A space between the thoughts Vienna (Austria)

1989-07-25 or 26th Public Program Day 2 in Vienna I bow to all the seekers of truth. I asked them to play this music, because the thoughts were too much [in the minds?] And this music has no words, it doesn’t give you thoughts. And that’s how thoughts can be removed very easily. One thought rises and falls off. Another thought rises and falls off. And we are jumping on the cusp of the thought. Either we are thinking about the past or about the future. But we cannot be in the present. When one thought rises and falls off, and before another rises, there is a space in between and that is the present. So when this Kundalini rises, it makes this thought smaller. And this central area of silence expands. That is the time we become thoughtlessly aware. When we look at a beautiful carpet, all kinds of thoughts start coming in our head. If this is my carpet, then I am worried about the insurance. But if it is somebody else’s carpet, then I start thinking, where will I get such a beautiful carpet, how much I’ll have to pay? I cannot enjoy the creation of beauty and joy, that the artist has tried to pour into it. So when I see this carpet, and I am in thoughtless awareness, all the joy of it’s creation starts flowing, like a river Ganges, cool vibrations start flowing and you feel completely relaxed. So the first step we have to Read More …

Mental projection does not know how to keep the balance Vienna (Austria)

1989-07-24 Public Program Day 1 in Vienna 1989 I hope you are enjoying the Indian music. Now I have asked them to sing a song which was written in the 12th century by a very famous poet called Namadeva. This is a folklore now sung in the villages of India for all these years where he has described the joy of Self-realization. So he says that “I have given up everything, my anger, my temper”, all these things which are my relations because he sings like a lady as if there’s my husband, my father in law, I have given up everyone. “But now o Mother Kundalini you be awakened, and give me” he asked “oh Mother give me the Yoga” means the union with the Divine. And that’s how in the village they sing and sing about getting realization and raising the Kundalini. And I hope you’ll clap to them and enjoy. [Mother talks in Hindi 6.04 – 6.15] Some of the Sahaja Yogis can come here, from Austria and other places to sing.. So this is the folklore and sung in a rustic way in the villages. Ambe, Ambe means the Kundalini and they are singing ude, ude means rise, rise. [Song – Mother starts talking again at 20.15] I bow to all the seekers of truth. At the very outset we have to know that truth cannot be conceptualised. It’s not a mental achievement because human mind has its own limitations and a breakthrough has to be Read More …

What happens when the chakras get enlightened? Austria Center Vienna (Kongresshaus), Vienna (Austria)

Public Program Day 2, 09-06-1989 I bow to all the seekers of Truth. Yesterday, I was [UNCLEAR] that so many of you have felt the cool breeze of the Holy Ghost. This is the All-Pervading Power of God’s love about which all the Scriptures have written.But in modern times because we never felt this breeze, we have even denied the existence of God   But once you get connected to this Divine force, then it starts working through you in such a wonderful way that you are amazed. As you see this instrument that I have here, has to be connected to the mains in the same way, every human-being is to be connected to the mains and that is this Power, which I’m talking about. This is what Christ has said that you have to be born again.   Now in India, we call a person who is a Brahmin, the one who has known this Brahma – the All-Pervading Power – as Dwijah meaning, twice born. And even a bird is called as ‘Dwijah’, in Sanskrit language, meaning, twice born. It is an egg first and then it becomes a bird. But we have many people in India who just brand themselves as Brahmins though they are not twice born.    In the same way, you find it everywhere that they just take a brand, “I’m this, I’m that,” but they’re not   If you are a twice born person then, you have to feel this All-Pervading Power.   Read More …

The Story of Markandeya Vienna (Austria)

Conversation with Sahaja Yogis, Ashram of Vienna, (Austria), 9 June 1988. You know the story of Markandeya or not? I tell you the story of Markandeya. You see, his father had no children and the father and mother were unhappy. So they prayed to Shiva and they said that we want to have a son. Shiva said, “I’ll give you the son, but I will have to take him back after eight years. So he’ll only exist till he is about eight years of age.” So, they gave that boon to him plus this kind of a curse. The parents were very upset that “our child will die after eight years of age”, very upset. But they found the child very bright, brilliant and also shining and very religious. One day he asked his father, “Why do you always so worry, I mean, after all I am your son?” So they said that it is said so, eight years or sixteen years, something like that. “Now I will be losing you very soon. Who can surpass Shiva?” He said it, “So, I cannot think we can really ask anyone to neutralize the curse upon us. If you are not born to us we would not have been so attached to you. Now you are born to us, we are so much attached to you.” He was a very wise person, he said: “No, I know someone, I know Adi Shakti. And he went to this place where you got to Read More …

ORF Radio Interview and Workshop Vienna (Austria)

1988-0609 Radio Interview and Workshop Interviewer: Ask you to tell me first to give me a basic definition of what’s your work in. Shri Mataji: Sahaja Yoga. Interviewer: Yes. What is it? I main idea of it? Shri Mataji: Sahaja. Saha means ‘with’.  ‘Ja’ means born. Born with you. That is spontaneous. Yoga means union with the Divine. Now many people in modern times won’t believe there’s anything like this. Supposing I say there is. Keep an open mind of a scientist you must accept it as a hypothesis to begin with. Now we have a Divine power, a very subtle power everywhere but we can’t feel it.  With our human awareness we cannot feel it. With human awareness we also don’t not know the absolute truth. [even in a relative way.] So there has to be a break-through and the break-through has to take place in our universal [consciousness] And Sahaja Yoga is the method which gives you that break-through. Interviewer: How does it do this? Now within us is placed an energy which we call as kundalini in Sanskrit language,which is a residual energy in the triangular bone or the sacrum, also means sacred bone, so maybe the Greeks knew bout it. It rises like a primule in a seed, passes through six centres and pierces through the last one here and gives you what we call as self-realisation, or real baptism, here. That’s what it is. And then on your central nervous system you can feel it, Read More …

The science of the roots Austria Center Vienna (Kongresshaus), Vienna (Austria)

Public Program. Kongresshaus, Vienna (Austria), 9 June 1988. I bow to all the seekers of truth. Yesterday I was happy that so many of you have felt the Cool Breeze of the Holy Ghost. This is the All pervading power of God’s Love about which all the scriptures have written. But in modern times because we never felt this Breeze we have even denied the existence of God. But once you get connected to this Divine force, then it starts working through you in such a wonderful way, that you are amazed. As you see this instrument (ed: microphone) that I have here has to by connected to the mains. In the same way every human-being is to be connected to the mains, and that is this power which I am talking about. This is what Christ has said that, “You have to be born again.” Now in India we call a person who is a Brahmin, the one who has known this Brahma, the All pervading power as dwijaha – meaning twiceborn. And even a bird is called as dwijaha in Sanskrit language meaning twice-born, it is an egg-first and then it becomes the bird. But we have many people in India, just brand themselves as Brahmins, though they are not twice-born. In the same way you find it everywhere that they just take a pride, “I am this, I am that,” but they are not. If you are a twice-born person, then you have to feel this All Read More …

Radio Interview with Molden Vienna (Austria)

1988-06-09 Radio Interview Vienna Austria Shri Mataji: Hello, all of you, sorry for being late, but they never told me. Yogi: Sorry Shri Mataji, but I didn’t want to disturb your breakfast. Yogi: This is Mr. Molden Shri Mataji, the young man who would like to make the unclear (shrine work) on the Celestial press Shri Mataji: Good, good, great, please sit down. Unclear() Yogi: Shri Mataji, the first question I would like to ask you is its one of the facts that are known here in Austria about you, that you were worked together with Mahatma Gandhi Shri Mataji: unclear(not subtle), not working together I am not saying that way, but you see, when I was child he took me a unclear (word), I was living with him (Ed: Mahatma Gandhi) from the age of seven years quite some time that certain things of course he realized in Me perhaps. And he was a very kind person, to children especially, but a very great disciplinarian. To himself and to others also, but with children he was very kind and I used to meet him quite often. But My parents both were with him. And My father went to jail many a times, My mother went to jail. And I too took a very dynamic role when I was very young – about 18 years of age. 18, 19 in 1942-movement. And I organized lots of things when they all were in jail. My father was in jail, Mahatma Gandhi was Read More …

We are all part and parcel of the Whole Austria Center Vienna (Kongresshaus), Vienna (Austria)

Public Program, Vienna (Austria), 8 June 1988. I bow to all the seekers of truth. Today we find in the whole world a great inner movement to seek the truth. This movement has come because we feel that so far whatever we have tried we have not been very successful. We are not being happy, satisfied. All kinds of ideologies, religions came into being. But they have failed to give what they promised about it. This failure for every honest and thinking man has opened a new era of seeking. And this era of seeking has to culminate into something substantial, has to give the light of reality to people and not just talking. If you categorize the past enterprises of people into politics or into religion you can easily see the principle behind it was either money-oriented or power-oriented. All religions have been money-oriented. They use the name of great incarnations to make money. And people also very humbly accepted that, “We have to pay money to these people who are teaching us religion.” The another side of all these religious bodies have been to give us a kind of a idea that they are very powerful. They make you fight with each other. These organizations have created soldiers out of you; militaries out of you. This has happened in the past and it is happening even today. We have to be very alert and understand that God does not want you to fight among yourselves. God has created Read More …

Airport Arrival and Welcome Speech at Melichargasse Ashram Vienna (Austria)

Welcome Speech. Vienna (Austria), 7 June 1988. These flowers should be put in the water, I think. And I have also brought some flowers, they have sent you all flowers from there and best wishes to all of you. All the English Sahaja Yogis came to the airport and send their best wishes to you all. And there have been miracles and miracles. One of them was, there is, you know Harry Jairam, he’s a very ordinary student and he was doing something, I think with electromagnetic work he was doing, and suddenly he discovered a kind of a switch which he does not know how it has come to him, and he doesn’t know how it works. So he has been given a very big job and now he has to lecture to people and tell them how it works but he doesn’t know how it works. (Shri Mataji laughing & laughter) I won’t have anything, I think, I had mine, all right little bit, little bit. What should I have? Whatever is German. This is German? No, Indian. All right. Thank you. Sit down, sit down. There is room this side I think for some people. We all have gathered here from so many countries. It’s very heartening to see how Sahaja Yoga is now spreading smoothly into the countries who have different type of ideologies. Sahaja Yoga is a very pleasant beautiful blessing to all of us. You don’t have to sacrifice anything, you don’t have to Read More …

Religions explained University of Vienna, Vienna (Austria)

Public Program Day 2 at Audimax University. Vienna (Austria), 13 October 1987. I bow to all the seekers of truth. As I told you yesterday that truth is not a concept. When people start establishing something as truth there arises the problem. Because truth can not be organized, can not be ordered, can not be changed, it is what it is. And today the truth is that the time has come for people to get their resurrection. That’s the time has come where people have to ascend to their higher being. As in Koran described very clearly as ”Kiyama” – is the time of resurrection. Said very clearly that your hands will speak. And they will give witness about you. This is the time of Last Judgment. God is not going to weigh people or to judge them. It is you only in your ascent are going to judge yourself. And there are people who are a special category today, who are seeking something higher. Now yesterday a question was raised about the religion part. All these religions which have come on this earth are product of Divine force. All the prophets and incarnations, all of them came on this earth to propound a special milestone within us. On the Tree of Life all of them grew one after another. But people took out or removed them from the Tree of Life saying, “This is my religion, this is my religion.” So believing into something that is dead. So, what Read More …

Reality has to be one and absolute University of Vienna, Vienna (Austria)

Public Program Day 1 at Audimax University. Vienna (Austria), 12 October 1987. I bow to all the seekers of truth. The truth is beyond human awareness. Whatever we know about this world, what we see, what we feel, is a very wee bit. The truth is that in your evolutionary process you have not yet touched the Absolute. And the truth has to be absolute. Now you see those plants here, everybody sees the plants and everybody knows it is the plants. But everybody asks Me why there are so many ideologies and philosophies about reality. Reality has to be one and absolute. And is seen, felt by everyone. Now what you have seen here, what he has told you I would say is the knowledge of the roots. In the West we have grown outside like a tree, but in the East, people had time to find out the roots. As Indians had to learn a lot about science, I think it’s important that all of us should know also about the science of the roots. A scientific mind has to be an open mind; it should not be a closed mind, which does not want to see the other side of it. If a hypothesis is put before a scientist, he works it out and if it is proved correct he accepts it as laws. So the hypothesis is first to be listened to, then if it is proved that it is absolutely correct then we have to Read More …

Arrival Talk Meli Ashram, Vienna (Austria)

Arrival Talk at Meli ashram, Vienna (Austria), 12 October 1987. Shri Mataji: My husband has asked Me to go there and bring that all. I told them that [inaudible] small children [inaudible] worked very hard. Nabhi is there why? Too much [sugar] all of them. (Laughter) All have worked very hard. [inaudible] very hard. Nabhi should be all right. It is such a pleasure to see you, Sabine. (Laughter) [inaudible] I’ve never expected – just imagine [inaudible]. And I had nice lunch, very nice lunch I had. I had very good lunch, so no more lunch. So when can you have time to go [Rahul ?] to do this? He has to go to India for that work of; you see he has got some sort of an order to do with some stamps in India. He has to go to organize that and also he wants to help in the house because I am here. So he was saying that you people have planned the whole thing. Akbar is there so you can go and help him a little bit, it can be done. I mean, it doesn’t take much time. But for having this what you call that anti-dampness there, you see for removing the dampness. In India, we put a thick layer on the wall which is done in one day. He said the foundation must be laid that’s all. Both of you should do some justice. He has gone for another work so we have to Read More …

Advice on Small Children Meli Ashram, Vienna (Austria)

Advice on small children in ashram Meli. Vienna (Austria), 9 July 1986. . [Unclear] which are going to the Primary Schools. But even those who are not going to Preschools are the small children when they are born. And that`s the time one has to be much more important. Because that`s the time they are the most impressionable is when they are born. I have given some instructions for the children: how to do all the things when the child is born, how the mother must be respected for 40 days and how the child must be looked after and massaged and all those things, I hope you have got all these things with you. But certain thing in that, I didn`t mention which are like medicines and things like that, simple medicines that should be given to children. The reason is, your thing was prepared by Lewis and I couldn`t tell him all that. But, for example, a very simple thing is like this. Supposing they are boiling the milk for the baby with some water, if they are mixing up water and milk. Then the problem is, if you separately boil them and mix, then the child will get cold and constipation or maybe diarrhea. But mostly constipation and cold, and nose will be always running. So basically, you give a child a problem, that this cold might continue forever. So, what you have to do is to boil both the things together, together. Start from the un-boiled Read More …

ORF Radio Interview Meli Ashram, Vienna (Austria)

Interview: Shri Mataji Talks about Her Early Life. Vienna (Austria), 9 July 1986. Reporter: Can we start with Your childhood? Shri Mataji: Yes. Reporter: Do You, can describe a little bit the circumstances where you were grown up? Shri Mataji: My family? Reporter: Yes. Shri Mataji:  I belong to a family of very enlightened people. My father was a linguist and he was master of fourteen languages. He knew about twenty-six languages and he translated even Koran-e-Sharif into Hindi language. My Mother was in those days, was a Honors in Mathematics. So both were very well educated and enlightened people. At the time of My birth, My mother dreamt something which she could not explain, but after that she had a great desire to go and see a tiger in the open field. My father was a great hunter, because tigers were a menace in the area where we were living. It was a hill station called Chhindwara. So there was a king who was very much interested in My father. Somehow or the other a letter came that there’s a tiger, a very big tiger that has appeared and they are frightened of him that he might be a man-eater. So My father took My Mother and Me to that place. And they were sitting what we call as a machhan, where they built something, for people to sit on top of a tree, from where they can shoot nicely. And then My mother tells Me that a big Read More …

Those who are cowardly or ambitious or full of ego cannot see the truth University of Vienna, Vienna (Austria)

Second Public Program Day 2. University in Vienna (Austria), 9 July 1986. One has to realize that truth is what it is. You cannot put your convictions on that, nor can you change it, nor can you destroy it. It will remain the same as it has been. Those who are cowardly or those who are ambitious, those who are full of ego cannot see the truth.Like yesterday, one boy came here as you saw him like a beaten dog, and he was saying something, nobody heard him. Instead of that, if he had any love for himself he should have taken Realization. Now, they belong to certain organizations, say example, somebody who wants to obstruct the work of God, and they try to hamper others – for what? The same organization in Geneva, it was so absurd, there are very well know organizations everywhere, and the lady brought a Bible to hit Me. And it was such a big joke for Me (Shri Mataji laughing) to see that she had come to hit Me with a Bible. And I started roaring with laughter, instead of getting any fear from her, “Oh,” I said, “That’s wonderful.” It’s all on the tape, of course, but I told her, “Why are you mad? Who is paying you? Why are you doing this madness, how long are you going to do it? Why don’t you think of your benefit, why don’t you think what good it can do to you? You don’t have Read More …

We have to reach our absolute state University of Vienna, Vienna (Austria)

Public Program Day 1, Vienna (Austria), 8 July 1986. I bow to all the seekers of truth. You’ve already heard about the system that exists within us. This knowledge is the knowledge of the roots. The knowledge that we have about the outward world is the knowledge of the tree. So to understand this knowledge, first of all we have to use it like a hypothesis. And like an open minded scientist we should try to see if it is true or not. We know that we have evolved from the amoeba stage to this stage, but we have not reached our absolute state. If we were at absolute state there would have been no wars, no quarrels, no fighting. Our consciousness would have been a Collective Consciousness. Today we see the whole world full of confusion and turmoil. And it is so very shocking to look at the future what are we taking our progeny into. If we understand the dangerous precipices on which we are standing today, we’ll think about it: What are we going to give in this generation to our progeny? We talk of peace, but there is no peace in the hearts of people. So one has to realize that there must be some methods, some more doing needed to achieve that state of peace. All the outward movement you have done on scientific things, on emotional style or anything that you have worked out so far has led us to nowhere. The person who Read More …

Press Conference: The time has come to become the Spirit Vienna (Austria)

Press Conference. Vienna (Austria), 7 July 1986. Alright we are here to inform you about a power which is within us and the power that can give you what is promised by all the saints, scriptures and all the incarnations. Today when you see the young people in every country – especially in the West – you`ll find they are not satisfied with their own atmosphere, their lives and they think that there is something missing and they are extremely confused. Now when they are confused they are seeking something beyond, something unknown to them. In that seeking, they may take to anything extreme, drugs, could be alcoholism, or some other perversions which cause horrible diseases, incurable diseases. Instead of condemning them we have to see why they are doing all these things what is the purpose? Some of them also went to some gurus which are in the market. Especially when they see the religious people and the religions, they cannot believe that religion can give such horrid experiences and some of them are anti-God, anti-religion also. But if you deal with the problems sympathetically, you cannot blame them, because they are intelligent, aware people. So now we have two categories of people. One: the ones who are not seeking at all, and another: the ones who want to find out solutions to the problems. In every generation we had people who revolutionise because they do not like a particular system, or do not like a particular style of Read More …

Shri Mataji and Children Vienna (Austria)

Talk to Sahaja Yogis about children, Vienna, 1986 Shri Mataji: Sit down, no more anger. Now quietly, the babies eat. What was the matter? So much of heat, he? Now you’re all right. [To another baby] Just take it, take some more. What about him? You didn’t take any? Come along, come along, have some chana, all the children should have. All right, have some more. Good. All right, who else? Come along, come, come. Yes, Good! Bridget’s children are here, are they? Oh Bridget’s, no I’m saying this – our Antoinette’s children are they here? No. Sahaja Yogi: No. Shri Mataji: They have gone back? They have gone back. They are very thin now, must do something about them. They require some liver treatment I think, both the children are very thin. All the children must be giving calcium somehow. Do you get here some good calcium for children? Sahaja Yogi: Yes. Shri Mataji: What is it called as? Sahaja Yogi: They’re just tablets, Shri Mataji. Shri Mataji: Interesting? Are they interesting? In India, we get very good ones. Let us see what do you get here, you see because – Sahaja Yogi: You can buy some of. Shri Mataji: All right, so we’ll take for England also. England you don’t get for children. Sahaja Yogi: Children have calcium tablets, Mother… Shri Mataji: But they’re not interesting ones, children don’t like. It’s something like calcium oil we have in India. Children like it very much to eat. You have Read More …

Talk to Sahaja Yogis: Challenge the Past and Future Vienna (Austria)

Talk to Sahaja Yogis. Vienna (Austria), 7 July 1986. [I thank them] …again for what they achieved in Guru Puja. The way the [autel ?] was arranged so beautifully and organized so beautifully, so that nobody felt any strain whatsoever. Of course in Sahaja Yoga there are always ups and downs. As you have seen, we try to do our level best, but still sometimes you feel that there can be some mistakes we might have committed. But there’s – it is not for you to be upset about it. Because once you have reached the shores of joy then you should not give it up for anything. Because it is own your choice whether you want joy or you want unhappiness. Now in this Guru Puja I felt everybody reached a very great height of achievement and have become the joy itself. Now whatever your past was, whatever mistakes you might have committed in the past in your ascent or whatever might have happened in the past because of others to you, is all lost in the past, the ocean of the past. (Shri Mataji laughing) Aside: It’s all right, let it be, leave it. It’s all right. I won’t need, it’s all right. But now you see when you reach a certain state then you should not allow anything of the past to come back. I would even suggest to give a challenge to the past. (Advice to translator regarding microphone) Will be like this, you see, keep Read More …

Shraddha is faith after enlightenment TU Wien, Vienna (Austria)

Second Public Program in Technische Hochschule, Vienna (Austria), 7 May 1985. I bow to all the seekers of truth. Yesterday, those who have felt the Cool Breeze in the hand should put their hands on the table like this, because it has started already but while My speech is going on they will feel it more. Everyone can do it, it’s all right, even if you have not felt yesterday. So yesterday I told you that the truth has to be felt on your central nervous system. They say there is all-pervading power which does all the living work. You have to feel it, it’s not just a picture or a symbol or a talk or a topic, but you have to feel that, this is the time! Because people have been talking about it so far, the time had not come. But those who told the truth did say about these times which are some special times. So those who say that, “We believe in God” or, “We believe in Christ” or, “We believe in communism” or, “We believe in democracy”, are just mentally believing into it. I would say I am quite a great capitalist because I have all the powers. And I am the greatest communist because I can’t live without sharing it with others. I’m a very happily married woman, at this age I am quite old and I am travelling around the whole world just sharing it with others. So, you have to feel the Read More …

Seekers of the beyond TU Wien, Vienna (Austria)

First Public Program in Technische Hochschule, Vienna (Austria), 6 May 1985. I bow to all the seekers of truth. It is very important at this time to know that human beings are not complete, that there is something more to be achieved to be complete. Whether you go to the north or south, east or west, you do not find people joyous. So the conclusion should be that whatever has been our so-called achievements, has been of no avail. On the contrary, in the modern times, say about twenty years back we can say, so many new words have come up, which people like Me can’t understand. Like tensions, like problems – I don’t understand. But all these have come to us through various channels and are settled in our conditioning. While people have talked against conditioning, that we shouldn’t have condition, we have conditioned ourselves with all these theories and talks about something that is unknown. Like psychologists, you have to go to a psychologist as if everybody is an insane person. Everybody must have a lawyer and must have a psychologist to hang around. There is no need to have a psychologist for sane people. So instead of improving we have gone down. There are certain diseases that have developed now in America, like AIDS and all that, have come to us through our bad conditioning by Mr. Freud. You cannot analyze a human being by asking questions, because it’s just a mental process. Whatever we think and Read More …

The time has come for people to get their resurrection Vienna (Austria)

Public Program day 2, the time has come for people to get their resurrection I bow to all the seekers of Truth. As I told you yesterday that Truth is not a concept When people start establishing something as Truth there arises the problem because Truth cannot be organized, cannot be ordered, cannot be changed it is what it is. And today the Truth is, that the time has come for people to get their resurrection, that the time has come where people have to ascend to their higher being. As in Koran described very clearly, is Kiama is the time of resurrection. Said very clearly, that your hands will speak and they will give witness about. This is time of Last Judgment.

Sahasrara Puja Seminar, Talk to Sahaja Yogis: Nirananda Vienna (Austria)

“Nirananda”, Vienna Ashram (Austria), 2 May 1985. It is so joyful to be with you all again here in Vienna. A poet came to Vienna long time back from India, he said that walking on the streets of Vienna the heart starts beating in a poetic rhythm and the ripples of poetry start flowing.  So, there have been people who have been seekers before in this place definitely and that they are again sort of reborn. So we are all looking forward to Sahasrara Day, which is a very great thing and that you all are here to take up the task of receiving all the Sahaja Yogis and looking after them. Now the atmosphere, as I said, of Vienna itself, is very poetic. I’m sure Sahasrara Day will be a great experience for all of you.  Poetry is like moonlight and when it falls upon any matter, it enhances the beauty and gives it a charisma and the language is so beautiful that it hides all the ugliness as the moonlight hides all the detailed ugliness. It creates an atmosphere – so meditative. This is what is Sahaja Yoga; that it makes our life the prose into poetry – the poetry of experiences and events that take place. Like today, when we were coming by plane, three of us wanted to sit in one line, and that we had two seats together and one on the side. Now Dr. Rustom and myself sat together and Dr. Spiro sat on Read More …

Talk at Gregoire’s House Vienna (Austria)

Talk at Gregoire’s house. Vienna (Austria), 6 September 1984. …and in the center of it, you see, so it doesn’t touch the sand at all – sand has nothing to do, only the water. After the minimum level we find out, what is the minimum level, it goes on – and we put it there. Now what happens, that the water is collected, it is sucked in through here, see. We don’t suck in any sand also. There’s a way of doing it by which we take it in the center of the river. Sahaja Yogi: So we can use this part of the river for rice – for growing rice? Shri Mataji: We can do a lot on this side – we can do a lot on this side. But this one is taken into the depth of the river. Because you see this much is, what is it, it’s just a pipe, that’s all. That’s not much of an expense, this pipeline, not much of an expense, from where the water is sucked in through this. So that’s not much of a thing for us – pipeline. Only this thing should be taken into the center. And then this area can be used for making some plants, something we can use, which are growing on the water – watermelons, lotuses, watermelons, all these things we can do. But lotus doesn’t grow on the river. It grows on the lake. So like that we can have watermelons and other Read More …
