The feeling of seeking Friends Meeting House (1903) (Demolished), Cheltenham (England)

Public Program, Friends Meeting House, Cheltenham UK, 1 August 1982. Brian, you better be sitted. Let Brian be sitted first. So you are all right, Warren? Get up. Let him sit. He cannot see. Now, it’s all right. I know Chris has already informed you about the advent of Sahaja Yoga. As you know modern times, are great times, for spirituality. Never before, in the history, of this universe, there were so many seekers. Even if you go back, about say twenty five years, people never talked even about seeking. They didn’t know what it was like. But suddenly, this feeling of seeking, has become very strong all over the world. There must be some special reason for that. When the seeking is felt, not necessarily we know what we are seeking. It’s not necessary that we know what we have to seek. Also it is not necessary to understand how to seek. But a feeling of urge, a tremendous urge within us, makes us feel, that there is something beyond we have to seek also, that we don’t feel satisfied with what we have. There must be something more that we should know. Whatever we have known so far as human beings, we do not feel contented by that. All the countries who have had affluence, had this urge much more. than the countries who are still, aspiring for affluence, for a plastic development, you can call it. In the affluent countries only people are realizing more that the Read More …

Havan after Adi Shakti Puja: Understand the significance of Havan Cowley Manor, Cheltenham (England)

Havan after Adi Shakti Puja 1982-08-01 04:10 Shri Mataji: Now, let’s understand the significance, all right? Now, he said a word ‘Swaha’. ‘Swaha’ is the capacity of the Nabhi Chakra. That is – it burns everything. The capacity! You can say ‘the essence’. It burns up everything. Whatever you put of the fire, it burns up. That’s one. Second it purifies. Say, if you have got mixed up gold and you put it in the fire, it glances. It burn something, it does not burn something – discriminate. It has got discrimination. It has got brilliance. Fire also has another great capacity, that it goes against the gravity. And when it goes against the gravity, it suggests that there can be another energy that can go against the gravity and that is the Kundalini. Many people confused with Kundalini the Prana Shakti. They thought, because Prana Shakti is the child of fire. They could only related to Kundalini. They thought that Kundalini and Prana Shakti are the same, because Kundalini also goes against the gravity. Then it has capacity to give you brilliance. A person who do this fire can use it to polishing things into brilliant, to its brilliance. It has capacity to join by melt it. Like human beings are like steel, worse than that sometimes. Then it’s this part in a subtle way for heart, melts their heart and joins them. So the significance of fire is expressed here, and that’s why fire is worshipped. Fire has Read More …

Adi Shakti puja: Mother, make me such that I suck more of the Divine Cowley Manor, Cheltenham (England)

Adishakti puja, Cowley Manor Seminar, Cowley, Cheltenham (UK), 1 August 1982. Shri Mataji: Have the Americans come, those who have done the puja, have they come? Sahaja Yogi: Yes, Mother. Shri Mataji: Are they here? Sahaja Yogi: Yes. Shri Mataji: Oh, they are here. Then it’s all right. And in these new centres, have you started with puja anywhere? Sahaja Yogini: Yes, Mother. Shri Mataji: No, yours is all right. I’m asking about England. Warren: Any centres in Britain? Where there are new people. Shri Mataji: Cheltenham, for example. Where is Allan? Ask him. Warren: He’s just gone out for a moment. Any centres in Britain, any new people here, right now? Shri Mataji: If you have introduced them to puja, I don’t mind. But if they have never been introduced to puja, then you have to be careful. From their good point of view. I’m sorry I had to say this, because yesterday the load was too much, you know I couldn’t speak even, and lifting the Kundalini was like raising hundred donkeys on your head, it was too much. And all these half-baked people are such that they are like dog-in-the-manger, they won’t have it and they won’t allow others to have it. They’ll argue before the program, before the meeting starts, before the puja starts, specially. Because they don’t want you to enjoy the fruits of the puja; they’ll spoil your attention, they’ll argue, discuss. [Aside: “Please sit down”] What is there to argue in Sahaja Yoga? Read More …

Evening Talk eve of Adi Shakti Puja: Dedication Through Meditation Cowley Manor, Cheltenham (England)

Complete Dedication The Only Way/ Dedication through meditation. Cowley Manor Seminar, Cheltenham (England), 31 July 1982. Today, for the first time, I’m venturing to say something which I should have said much earlier. As today I told you that it is necessary that you have to recognise me. And that recognition is fixed. That condition is fixed. I cannot change it.  As Christ has already said, that: “Anything against me will be tolerated, will be forgiven, but anything against the Holy Ghost will not be.’’ It’s a very big warning – very big warning. Perhaps people don’t realise what it means. Of course none of you are against me, that I know, and you don’t do anything against me, that’s very true. After all, you are my children, I love you very much and you love me. That’s only the warning that Christ has given you. But one must think why we are not progressing so fast as we should have. When people are mesmerized, they fall completely flat on the ground in front of their gurus, absolutely. They give up their money, they give up everything – homes, houses, families, children, and just go flat – when they are mesmerized. Without asking any questions, without going into any detail, without trying to find out the life of their guru. All such people also go very fast into darkness, into greater darkness, and into complete destruction. But you are sahaja yogis and you have to construct yourself. I didn’t want Read More …

Who’ll ask questions to them. And I want to watch what sort of questions you ask, what sort of answers you get. And of course, I’ll also be able to answer some of the questions. And how to answer the question of a person who is not yet Realized, is half-baked, and how to handle the situation. We have to learn, that is very important. Because you have to know that negativity is in complete force all the time. And we have to face the negative ideas, negative people, negative plans. And when they plan, it is necessary – please, come, all of you-It is necessary for all the Sahaja Yogis that they should be equipped– Move forward.Sahaja Yogi: Come forward. Shri Mataji: They should be so equipped that they should be able to face sometimes [inaudible]. There can be many like that you meet, who are seekers, who have been seeking, who have been doing lots of mistakes and who have conditioning problems Read More …
