Arrival and Talk to Sahaja Yogis Rome Ashram - Nirmala House, Magliano Sabina Ashram, Rome, Magliano Sabina (Italy)

Arrival and advice to Sahaja Yogis in Rome Ashram [Sahaja Yogis: Bolo Adi Shaki Shri Mataji Shri Nirmala Devi ki Jai, ki Jai, ki jai] Shri Mataji: Ah. All right. All right. Sit down. Sit down. All the children sit down. Here. All right. All right.. It’s such a surprise. [addressing the children] Are you happy?  Children: Yes. Shri Mataji: It’s such a surprise to see you. So many people coming from the outside room. Such a surprise and such joy. Now what I find, all over the world, that the Sahaj Yogis are getting very responsible. Very responsible and trying to plan out, how to increase the [unclear/ numbers]and also how to increase the quality, and the improvement is tremendous. So what we have to remember that, it is not only if we have regard and respect for Mataji, also it is not sufficient that we are surrendered absolutely. Also that you now have identified Me well, still is not sufficient. You see as you know, there are many people in other religions also, they all are surrendered, say to Christ. They respect Christ and accept that He was the son of God. But they haven’t achieved much. For your ascent, because you are realised souls, you have to know that your own power must increase. That means you have to trust yourself fully and work it out. Because only through you, people are going to come to Sahaj Yoga. When they see you only, they will think there Read More …

Mother’s Day Celebration, Short talk on creativity and Shri Mataji playing harmonium Rome Ashram - Nirmala House, Rome (Italy)

1990-05-10 Mother’s day at Nirmala House: Creativity (21.59) Today is mother’s day and I think this country has tremendous respect for mothers and mothers are also very loving in this country. It is very fortunate to be here on such a day, as Mother’s Day. Today we went out to see how Italy has become so creative and the mother earth gives you the creativity. She gives you. You learn from her how beautiful things she has produced and you try to reproduce it. But if you are not aware of the beauty, it is such a pure thing around you, you cannot be a good artist. Then you take to vulgar things. Things which are very cheapish, which have no value. But people who have the feeling of oneness with the mother earth try to make things to express their joy, that they are feeling from the beauty she has created. In the same way, you are also so exuberant with love and affection. I haven’t done much for you, I don’t think so. You may think so. I don’t know. But only thing that really binds us is our love. Together. And this love is not blind love. So this love is the truth. This love is not only the truth, but is the knowledge. If you love somebody you know everything about the person. It is so deep and you know another person through your kundalini. It is so subtle that you get knowledge about another person. 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 …

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

Advice to Swiss Yogis: Give Them That Hope that There is a Way Out for the People who are Searching, 20 April 1987 Shri Mataji: Some breakthrough has to be found out. What is it you think you can do there? Sahaja Yogi: It is maybe to contact the people and kind of search in this direction, and maybe we have no success with ninth but with the tenth we have success. Shri Mataji: You see the people are searching all right. The people are searching no doubt, and there must be so many searching there, I agree with you, but we have to find out the people who are searching, that’s the point of it. And I feel the Swiss is catching on the heart very badly. You all should also not catch on the heart. So what to do about the heart? We have to write or we have to announce; we have to change our hearts, you see. We are very cold-hearted [unclear] See, I think the climate is such and the whole thing is, you see, that there are two movements going on in that country. One is that people are trying to build up new styles of arrangements for conservation of money and for the accumulation of money and all that, because they have had a very bad name and they have been keeping lots of money of other countries and have been trying to ruin us by doing this kind of a thing.  Like Read More …

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

Advice to Austrians yogis, Nirmala House, 20 April 1987. Shri Mataji: And that’s why it’s working out that way. Because if it was one sided, it should not have worked that way. It’s both the sides are there. Come in, come in, come in, move forward. [inaudible as more people enter] How are the children? Are they all right? Yeah. Come on. Hamid is there or gone? Yogi: Hamid is on the way. He is here. Shri Mataji: He is here. I wanted to know about his experiment, what has happened? Yogi: I think he did not continue so far. Shri Mataji: Hamid, what has happened about your experiment? Of saving the… Come here, can’t hear you. Come in, come in, come in. Hamid: Mother, at this moment it’s impossible to go there. It’s also about one metre of snow. Shri Mataji: Yes, I saw, I saw it while coming, but now how is it otherwise? Hamid: I must go there. Shri Mataji: But in the beginning how was that, till now? Hamid: In the beginning it wasn’t so bad, and last summer I was the last time there and I gave Your pictures there at different places and vibrated with water and come back. And now after winter, I must go again there. Shri Mataji: But why don’t you take some water from here. Did you take from yesterday’s puja? Hamid: I did it. You have given me water from India… Shri Mataji: What I thought that now, when Read More …

Shri Ganesha Puja: You Should be Prepared to Change Rome Ashram - Nirmala House, Rome (Italy)

Shri Ganesha Puja. Rome (Italy), 19 May 1985. It’s a great day for Me to come to Italy to celebrate Ganesha Puja. The nature which we see around is the blessing of the Ganesha only, because He is the one who prays to the Mother Earth that She should grant Her blessings upon human beings. It is He who moulds all the elements of the nature and moulds them to create life. As you call them, these are all carbohydrates. Now, the carbohydrates have got carbon and hydrogen. Carbon is coming from Shri Ganesh and hydrogen is coming from Mahakali. And that is how this universe is created in this beautiful way all around us. Now, these carbohydrates need oxygen, which is given to us by the Sun, by the right side. Thus, you know that in the night, these trees emit hydrogen and in the daytime they generate oxygen. This is all the trick of Shri Ganesha, who is sitting in between. Now, it is He who becomes the Sun. He ascends from the deep-down seat below the Kundalini, rises on the left-hand side of Mahakali, goes up and settles in the Surya, that is the Agnya.  So Mahakali, which is the Primordial Energy, is absolutely transcended by Him. As the child of Mahakali, He’s absolutely dedicated and devoted to Her. And that is how He is the master of Mahakali power, Lord of [that power]. That means He is the Lord of the subconscious mind. He is the Lord of all the jadas. Jada, Read More …

Discussion on Progress in the West Rome Ashram - Nirmala House, Rome (Italy)

Discussion on Progress in the West, Rome Ashram, Italy 1985 -05-17 How we are destroying ourselves, I think that is the ideal thing one can do. The real shock is this we should not worry about population or anything. I think you should all sit down and think about it and make a, this thing, and then you should give confessions and stories about someone Sahaj Yogi told me horrible story about his own father that when he got his confirmation and he was about 16 years of age you see. The father celebrated it, his confirmation and after that he called a prostitute to teach him all about just imagine.If that is the situation, if the parents only try to..like these things. And they think they are liberated, there should be a really very sarcastic and any pungent attack on these people those who think they are liberated and this and that. It’s just a mental domination and the conscious mind has become so powerful with the west I tell you, one day they won’t be able to control it also, won’t be able to control their conscious mind. It will go beyond their consciousness; it may happen like that. You see, when ego becomes the most powerful thing then you cannot control it at all. {Shri mataji talking to a sahaj yogi}. They are living in another world I tell you still, have to make them understand that they are really going towards their destruction all these things Read More …
