Workshop, day 2, Jaipur [India], February 19th, 1986 Take your seats Looks like the Doctor has worked very hard upon you all The old man: [Unclear] [Speaker advices everyone to sit in front] Shri Mataji: [To the lady] OH! How are you? Did you just touch MY feet! [Shri Mataji enquires about another person. The lady conveys that he/she has had a heart attack. Shri Mataji is telling her to bring that person along, he can get cured. Shri Mataji pats her] Very well! [Some light conversation – Unclear] Shri Mataji [sits down]: My throat is sore because of giving innumerable talks. [Someone from the audience – unclear]. It looks to Me that you people have entered the kingdom of God. Understand that you have taken your seats there but now, how will you know that you have reached there? Try to desire something, anything – God is watching, you are His disciples. He will fulfill every desire of yours in a very beautiful manner. Another thing to look at is collective consciousness. Now you people are collectively conscious because the way the Spirit is designed, it is collective, indicating there is nothing else left. On your fingertips, you can know which of your chakras are catching as well as others’. Now all you have to learn is the Deities of each chakras and how to please them. Both for yourself and for others. So, all you have to do it, feel on your hands. Let’s try to understand, there Read More …

Workshop Norman Park, Brisbane (Australia)

Workshop, 1985-0308, Norman Park, Brisbane, Australia I’m very happy to see so many people coming down in Brisbane. Because that is the first time they have started a centre here and to start anything that is real is the most difficulty. All great saints, great incarnations whenever they tried to talk of real things have suffered a lot. Only the artificial ones are successful very fast. Because you can produce many artificial flowers very easily, plastic flowers, but to produce real flowers it takes time. Not only that but it takes real people also to become that. Now Dr.Varon has told you so many things, I don’t know what I’m supposed to tell you. But only thing is that you must remember that now you have become yogis. Yogi means you have united with the all-pervading power of God. That doesn’t mean that you have just united and there is no effect. The first effect comes that you go beyond the realm of cause and effect. I don’t know if he has told you anything about the effect and about the certain miracles that have taken place. Varon: No, please you tell. So how the miracles take place in your life is very interesting and that you will see everyone will notice now that without any understanding, without doing anything you will find suddenly you are helped out of situations. Suddenly you get things which you never expect them normally to get. I’ll give you an example which he has Read More …

Workshop Perth (Australia)

Workshop Shri Mataji: No questions at all? You can’t think, I think you have gone beyond that. Such a pleasure to have you all here, in this cool atmosphere. Now, as Dr. Warren Reeves had told you, it’s a fact, we have this power within us, no doubt. Which you can see in some people, when it rises you can see pulsating. If there’s an obstruction on your Nabhi chakra, then you can see it actually with your naked eyes, a pulsation like a heart, your triangular bone pulsates. Surprisingly, this bone is called as Sacrum, and Sacrum means sacred, means in Greece people new that there’s something sacred in it, that they called it a sacrum. Now, the main thing is that we become the Spirit. We become the Spirit. Now the quality of spirit is that it is the truth. Whatever we know about people, about things, about anything, is still a confusion, we are not sure. Somebody might say, “This is a nice man”, somebody might say “he’s a very bad man”. And by the time you’ll discover him, you’ll be in trouble. So, there’s no absolute measure of anything with us, whatever we know is relative. We live in a relative world. Whatever it is, we say, “alright, this is good, that is good”. That might be bad, but we do not have any absolute value system by which we can say what is the real, actual good. And for that you have to become the Read More …

Workshop for new people, candle treatments Sydney (Australia)

Workshop for new people, candle treatments, Sydney, 1983, March the 20th Sahaja Yogi: Just to finish off on that point, Mother often uses this expression that there are jet planes and there are bullets cars. We all have to rise at the same level and this is what this Collective Consciousness is all about [inexact interpretation].I, when I get my Realization, am not at a higher level than you when you get your Realization. I may have cleared my chakras a little more than you but we all have to come together; we all have to work it out together. It has to be a collective experience. All right? It’s not that I’m a great Yogi and you are a little, a little nothing.Seeker lady: [Inaudible]Sahaja Yogi: Why don’t we let Mother answer that question.Seeker lady: Right.Sahaja Yogi: The question of people: “Even before Realization, having a certain level of awareness which was, are they close to Realization, and what if they don’t even meet you? What is their position?” Shri Mataji: You have to know that you all have been seekers before also. This is not the first time you have been seeking. So, already you have reached a certain state where you feel and you are aware that something more has to happen to you, you are already ready for that, some of you have really taken birth in this time just for this. So, because I’m not going to talk of your past, past is over now, Read More …

Workshop in the Park, Mother Are You The Holy Ghost? Adelaide (Australia)

Workshop in the Park, Adelaide, Australia, March 5th, 1983. Shri Mataji: This centre what we call as “left Vishuddhi”. Now have you told them about left Vishuddhi? Sahaja Yogi: No, not the specific sides, just the general things of it. Shri Mataji: All right. Now, this left Vishuddhi comes to you if you have said mantras wrongly. You see, the mantras are to be said only when there is a realised soul who knows what mantras are to be said. And if you do not know about it, you accept the mantras. Anybody who tells you, “Say this mantra”, you just start saying it, without understanding, whether it is given by an authority or not. Also you don’t know whether it is meant for you or not. Maybe it is not required for some. Any particular mantra may not be required. And some of the mantras are absolutely absurd things. So mantras also, it’s a very big science. And just now I am feeling the left Vishuddhi. Also one feels it, even if you have not taken mantras, if you have been feeling guilty. Like, you see, if you are used to confessions and things like that, if you are used to a situation where you feel that “I’m guilty for this”. You know, the norms of today’s modern life are so funny, that even for small thing you have to feel guilty. For example if you put the fork in a wrong way, you feel guilty: “Oh God, I Read More …

In the center of – it’s all right, let her be comfortable – is the center heart, as you call, we call it center heart. But, is this center, this is a very subtle center within us which manifests the gross plexus, which is called as – thank you – which is called as the cardiac. There is any doctor here?

Shri Mataji: You see, in Sahaja Yoga, you are not given any mantra or anything. There’s no, nothing like giving you into a big course, like teaching you one after another any mantra, or anything, it’s not like that. What you have to know: where the Kundalini is, how it is moving, where it is, what is the charka catching and what is the mantra for that. It doesn’t take anything, hardly it takes about a week for you to understand the all thing. But gradually, as you start using it, you become proficient and you how to do it for yourself and for others. There is not much Read More …

But he is no disciple of his, he is all false. Nityanand was a realised soul. Yogi: Nityananda. Shri Mataji: But… Yogi: Bhagavan Nityananda. Shri Mataji: Hm? Yogi: Bhagavan Nityananda. Shri Mataji: Hm? Bhagavan…? Yogi: Bhagavan Nityananda. Yogini: Bhagavan Nityananda. Shri Mataji: But he was not Bhagavan. Nityanand was just a realised soul. See, there is a difference between an incarnation and a realised soul. Yogi: Bhagavan is an incarnation. Shri Mataji: Incarnation. Now, incarnation among all these, was Shirdi Sai Nath.

HH Shri Mataji, Workshop Part-1, Finchley Ashram, London, UK, 1977-1118. All the prostate gland and all these things are involved because of overactivity. The whole nervous system is ruined by this kind of an overactivity. I mean, are you nothing but a sex point?  We must respect our personality. You are not only a sex point. I mean, even animals are not that. How could we be only our sex point? But that doesn’t mean that you should become like those people that you can’t look at women. Why can’t you? You can look at women, if you are that clear in your eyes, you should. Everyone will look, you see, we never feel that way about it. Not at all. But your eyes are not clear, you see, they are dissatisfied eyes. They are adulterous. That’s why they are not satisfied with one person, from one to another they are moving. What mistakes your parents have done, you are not going to do those mistakes or do you? Or your grandparents have done. It spoils everything. The whole society is based, the whole society, is based on one small point, is how far you understand sex and its sanctity. See, we all are sitting down as brothers and sisters.

“Workshop and discussions with Shri Mataji,” Finchley Ashram 1  11 November 1977 Tape 1 ( 1977-11-03 Workshop Part 2 Finchley Ashram, 93′, min 43:29 Shri Mataji: See, in the beginning   Sahaja is such a sweet thing that in the beginning it makes you  such that  you get the vibrations alright. And in the beginning it doesn’t give you the feeling of heaviness so much as it would to these people (yogis). It doesn’t make you feel nervous. Because supposing the first day, only, you get a heavy head, you would say, “What sort of a Sahaja Yoga is this one?” See? So it makes you, first of all, [feel] very nice and happy. But then, you see, it makes you also strong! And it makes you a witness. Then, when you start you don’t mind: you just got this in your head, it’s alright “haaa hooo,” but you take it out, you fight it out. It’s like you see it’s training, in a battlefield, and you have to fight the satanic forces, alright? So suddenly you are not exposed to the battlefield, but what they do is to first of all prepare you. First you are hit by a mock sword, so you don’t feel it. Then you strengthen your sword. Better now? Better? They used to be so much frightened, you know!  Everybody coming used to be frightened! They used to be very frightened, now they have become very relaxed!

In the same way, if this is a living process and it’s the most important thing, it has to be the easiest. It has to be all built-in there. Like a switch, you have to just put on the light. But of course, there is a big mechanism behind it. That is what it is. And how they have built it, that I have told you yesterday. How they themselves chose to come down and built it up.Ha?
