Christmas Puja Ganapatipule (India)

Christmas Puja, Ganapatipule (India), 25 December 2002. Merry Christmas to you all.According to Sahaja Yoga, Christ is settled on your Agnya Chakra. His whole life is depicting the qualities of a person who is a realised soul. What He has suggested in His own life is that you should not have any greed or lust. The way these days people are greedy all over the world is really shocking. Right from the childhood, our children also learn to ask for this or ask for that; only complete satisfaction in life can give you that equanimity, that balance by which you do not hanker after things.These days even India has become very much westernised in the sense they are also very much wanting to have this and that. Actually, now in America suddenly, with this happening, people are getting to spirituality. They come to spirituality because they think they have not found any satisfaction anywhere. But we have to see from His life, the great life of Christ. First He was born in a small little hut, as you saw many of them when you come round. Very much satisfied. And He was put in a cradle which was all covered with dry, very dry grass. Can you imagine? And then He sacrificed His life on the cross. Whole thing is a story of a sacrifice. Because He had a power, power of Spirit, that He could sacrifice anything, even sacrifice His own life, so you can understand the greatness of Read More …

Shri Ganesha Puja: You are in the war with Me & Departure Frankfurt (Germany)

Shri Ganesha Puja, Frankfurt (Germany), 27 September 2002. It’s so nice to come back after such a long time. And whenever I came, you always had gathered in a very big hall. We met, and that’s how the Sahaja Yoga started growing. It’s very important for you people from specially from Germany, Austria. These are the people who were in the war. And now you are in the war with Me. We have to fight, fight the evil. You know how the world is. We have to fight them and we have to take them out of ignorance. You are such a support for this because we have to change human beings. They have to become good people very fast. Once they get their Self-realization, the change will start. Now in England and also in Italy, what they are doing is to give realization to people on the street. Giving on the street, thousands of people now have become realized souls. It’s a very big thing because once you get your realization, you become the Spirit and all the goodness should come to you. If there is anything evil, bad in you that will go away. It’s spreading so fast everywhere and should also spread in those countries who are there. There’s no need, no need for you to fight or quarrel because you have got the divine help. You have got all the help all the help from the Divine, and this is what is to be understood: that Read More …

You are a spiritual personality New York Society for Ethical Culture, New York City (United States)

Public Program. New York (USA), 22 August 2002. I bow to all the seekers of truth. Actually, we are all seeking the truth. So many of us, but so far, so many couldn’t find and they are lost. But what is the truth? What is the truth about yourself? The truth is that you are not this body, you are not these emotions but what are you? You are the spirit. All the great saints and incarnations have said that you are the spirit and what we are trying to find out is our selfhood. We are after that research about ourselves. We’ve done lots of mistakes also by misguided people but I must say that there is a built-in arrangement within us, every one of you, which will take you to that selfhood, which will give you that self-realization. It’s very surprising that they have not talked about Kundalini so far. There is a power within all of you which is the Kundalini, which is three and a half-coiled energy in your, I should say, behind your triangular bone, or it is inside it and is waiting for that moment when it can be awakened and it can pass through the different centers piercing through your fontanel bone area. And that’s how you get your self-realization, that you feel cool breeze coming out of your fontanel bone area. It’s an actualization. It is not My lecture or reading or anything. It’s actualization which has to take place. If you don’t get it, doesn’t matter. Read More …

VOA ITV Interview with Shri Mataji New Jersey (United States)

VOA ITV Interview in New Jersey (USA). 1 August 2002. Interviewer: … also She was promoted even by Bhrigumuni, the ancient astrologer, in Nadi Granth. And that’s what Mataji talks about all the time: how to get Self Realization, how to get the absolute knowledge and the absolute truth.Sahaja Yoga, as we know, is the spontaneous union of the individual consciousness with the Divine Power through the awakening of our Kundalini which many times remains dormant in our system.Mataji, it’s a pleasure to talk to You right in Your home turf, in New Jersey, and tell us … I know last four years ago I met You. It was a great experience, and I want to tell our viewers again what it is all that You’ve been doing, promoting Sahaja Yoga for the last thirty years now all over the world.Tell us again briefly for viewers who don’t know what Sahaja Yoga really means and signifies. What does it do and how do we get that absolute knowledge through this discipline?Shri Mataji: Saha means with. Ja means born. Is born with you the right to get this yoga, is the union with the Divine. So this is your birthright. All human beings have this right to get the awakening of their Kundalini by which they become one with the Divine Power. This is the real yoga.Interviewer: Right, and as I said, even the ancient sages and astrologers, Bhrigumuni talks about it and You’ve written in Your book also, Meta Modern Read More …

Guru Puja: First you must have development of your left side Campus, Cabella Ligure (Italy)

Guru Puja. Cabella Ligure (Italy), 21 July 2002. (A loud thunder-clap followed by applause) In India they were all waiting for the monsoons and they are so much worried because the rain did not come. So, I was giving bandhan to the rain and it came here (applause and Mother laughs). And now also they have told, on the television, that it is going to rain in India. But first in Italy! (laughter) I was told that in Italy you needed rain very much and the first rain you had, few days back, and now this is the second one. Because all the understanding of the problems of our farmers is there.  And the rain, you see, is so kind that it works at the right time. I am surprised at the quick behaviour and obedience of the rain. Today is a great day, for all of us, because we are celebrating the Guru Puja and remembering all the great Gurus who came on this earth to teach the world about the truth. So many of them were [there]. And they tried their level best to explain to humanity what is spirituality. But it’s such a disparity that people never understood that spirituality is the most important thing we need. That we have to be one with the Divine Power. All their endeavour have been in the wrong direction. First of course they were very intelligent, more than animals, and started seeking, not the truth, but some sort of a self-emancipation I should say, or, Read More …

You all have to become Sufis Lütfi Kirdar Congress Palace, Istanbul (Turkey)

Public Program Lütfi Kırdar Congress Palace, Istanbul (Turkey), 23 April 2002, I bow to all the seekers of Truth. I’m very happy to see you all here to know about the Truth. Whatever is told about your subtle being is not yet known, because [UNCLEAR] in your awareness you don’t have yet that subtleness. That’s the last, the jump into your awareness of collectivity. I must tell you… I must tell you that in this country, that is Turkey, you had  so many Sufis. They called themselves Sufis because they were cleaned and they were spiritually endowed. They talked of Ruh (spirit) but nobody knew about Ruh and when they talked of Ruh they did not know how to explain – they talked of Ruhani life, but they could not explain what is Ruhani (spiritual) life. Ruhani is the life when you are connected with the all-pervading power of Divine love. It is a different area into which you enter. Because they could not explain, they wrote everything beautifully, describing it. But now the time has come for you to get your Ruhani life. Which is a very important thing, because if you are not connected to the divine power, whatever you may try, whatever how so ever you will pray, how much you will read Kuran, it won’t help. Human life is governed with jealousy, with temper, with all kinds of malignant things. And we can see all over the world the problems are just spreading. Once they will Read More …

Mahashivaratri Puja: Try to weigh every step that you take Pune (India)

Shivaratri Puja, Pune (India), 17 March 2002. Tonight we have gathered here to do Shri Shiva Puja. Those people who have a clean heart can only do Shiva Puja. Those whose heart is not clean cannot do Shiva Puja. It’s a simple principle of Shri Shivaratri.As you have seen yesterday, we have snakes, or, these are horrible snakes guiding behind the Shiva Linga. The significance is this – those who are clean in heart, who are full of love for others, are always guarded by the power of Shiva, which are the snakes.It’s a symbolic thing, to say, very symbolic. But I must say that animals understand Divine force much better than human beings, much better. Because they have a clean heart. Whatever is their lifestyle built by nature, they carry on with it.But there’s no malice, there’s no jealousy, there’s not all these mean things in their heart.They do it because it is supposed to be.But the quality of human beings is only one – and that is how much they love and forgive.Loving capacity of human beings are such by which they conquer all their negative forces – they can, easily, see that it’s not good to have all these qualities, or maybe that they understand it’s not noble to indulge into all these inhuman behaviour. They are not bound to indulge into all these things. Neither they are asked to be, but suddenly they get lured by such things which has got hatred, jealousy and greed.You see Read More …

Evening Program Christmas Puja Ganapatipule (India)

2001-12-26 Talk during Evening Program At Christmas Seminar, Ganapatipule, India Shri Mataji: I have no words to praise this Dance, Drama by these children. Their innocence has given such colour and such a beauty to the whole description a simple song. I am sure all of you enjoyed it …I enjoyed it very much. Our children are growing so well in Sahaja yoga that I am amazed …How could they take to these difficult subjects of spirituality so easily…May God bless them all that they grow as great Sahaja yogis and do the work of Sahaja Yoga. All my best wishes for Dharamshala school. I didn’t know It was creating such beautiful, sweet, talents. Thank You very much!

Diwali Puja: Soldiers of Divine Love Lake Piru, Ventura County (United States)

Diwali Puja. Lake Piru, near Los Angeles, California (USA) 18 November 2001. It’s a very, very great day today, I should say, where the evil has been suppressed. The evil that spreads its power all over is only because of two factors: one is that you are not knowledgeable, you are still blind, and you follow things which are not right, but you think are powerful. This illusion creates not only problems, but absolute destruction. So we faced a very big challenge, no doubt, and it was easily solved. It was based on all wrong basis just to create a problem. [The] problem was created with a purpose, and nobody could imagine that it would be solved so easily and so quickly. My desire was to get over it before Diwali. That has happened. Due to ignorance, also, people do lots of things. Anybody who follows some religion or some sort of a thing. It’s only because they’re not aware of the truth, they are ignorant about achieving the truth, and they cling on to the fact that they know everything. With all this happening, there have been so many fractions, so many stupid people, who are getting completely ruined by ignorance. Now you are coming to Sahaj Yoga, you know all the knowledge, very subtle knowledge; very subtle. It’s not superficial knowledge. It is very subtle. And because they don’t know this subtle knowledge, they fall into the wrong path of, I should say, ignorance, and then they try Read More …

You are to be connected to divine power Athens, Hotel Novotel Athenes (Greece)

Public Program 2001-10-23 It so very kin do f you to have waited for such a long time. I am sorry I don’t know your language, but I can see how you love, love the truth and you want to have it. [not audible] . …that’s the most important thing. All the religions have said. But what is happening today is that all the religions are fighting among themselves. Why should it happen? Why shouldn’t we know ourselves? Are we afraid of ourselves? Because your self is beautiful! It is glorious. It is one that gives your own personality. And how many powers you have you don’t know them. Because you don’t know yourself. This is what we have to understand that let us know ourselves; what we are. That thing is the truth. That is truth that we don’t know what we are. That we have to know that truth. We talk of love all over the world, but we have no understanding as to what ocean of love we are. And in this ignorance where have, we reached? We hate each other, we torture everyone, we torture ourselves, where are we? There is no joy in our lives. There is no peace. Why? Why among human beings we have this problem? Because this one more step we have to move in our awareness. And which is not difficult. You cannot pay for it. And you cannot be jealous about it. It is a complete misunderstanding that drives us Read More …

5th Day of Navaratri: Overcome hatred with love Loutraki, Sportcamp (Greece)

Navaratri Puja. Loutraki (Greece), 21 October 2001. Today we have gathered here to do the Devi Puja. This Puja was performed many a times and Devi was requested by the Devas to save them from the tyranny of devilish people. Today, I feel the same way that we are now in the grip of a funny situation, that there are people who are themselves devils I think and also mesmerized by them, who are trying to do something which they should never have done. But they don’t know that there is a climax of everything and that point has arrived where all the good people, especially the Sahaja Yogis, should put all their mind to the destruction of these horrible personalities like Mahishasura. In those days it was very simple because devils came as devils and you could see them that they are devils and all their behaviour proved that they were devils. Why they did it? Why were they cruel? Because so-called ‘human beings’ as they are – they are not – they are by nature devilish and they want to do something by which they can destroy human beings and, good human beings. It is evident that the time has come for them to be destroyed. In no way I could be against Islam or ever to criticise Mohammed Sahib. He was divine no doubt and tried to do divine work but out of that divine work these stupid people have come up who accept those devilish people. Read More …

Shri Ganesha Puja: You Have To Protect The Innocent Campus, Cabella Ligure (Italy)

Shri Ganesha Puja, Cabella Ligure, 22 September 2001. Today we have assembled here to worship Shri Ganesha. Shri Ganesha who is the Lord of Innocence. He is the ocean of innocence. And though’ he is such a young, little boy, he can fight the whole world, he can destroy all the negativity. That’s the sign of innocence. There have been stories that children who have fallen from a very great height were completely saved, nothing happened to them. Their innocence is such a powerful thing that it doesn’t harm anyone who is not to be harmed. It has all the wisdom of the world, all the understanding of the world; and anybody who tries to harm the innocence, the world, the whole world – which may not have cared so much for innocence, might not have worshiped innocence so much – but they all stand, stand up against anybody who tries to harm the innocence. You can see in your own lives around you, (if/when) anybody tries to trouble children – all of the them, whatever they are, whatever they are coming from, whatever maybe their nationality, they all jump, all jump to control and to safeguard that child. What is it? What is it within us that makes us so very conscious to protect the innocence? It’s really a shame, a great shame for us, when we find in this world that innocence is under attack. Anything else can be tolerated. Innocent people who have done nothing wrong, those Read More …

Evening Program Shri Ganesha Puja Campus, Cabella Ligure (Italy)

You all know Tumar and his name is Dhananjay, it’s a very wonderful name, I must say very few people have this name, and his younger brother also has come, he is very good at tabla and of course Dhananjay seems to be getting inspiration from the divine and the way he played all those things were really so wonderful, he is very young in age, he started playing this day in the harmonium from the age of four years and very fond of Babamama and Babamama was very much fond of him but sometimes you know people play politics and he didn’t come for some time, I was surprised, I’m very happy he could come and he could enjoy his music and his whole system, it’s so wonderful that how many instruments he can play at the same time. Now this one was the last one, was something of a very great musician, Bade Gula Malikasahab, we have heard him but not you people because we are old and you are all young so he may not be, he’s no more now but he was a great master, great master and so much lost in his music that while singing he used to raise all his body upward and again go back and in the beginning we felt, this is too much of an exercise but the way he had mastered this Indian music was remarkable, he had had such great musicians in our country and that art sort Read More …

How you can reach to the state of self-realisation? Caffè della Versiliana, Versilia (Italy)

Interview / Public Program at the “Caffè della Versiliana”. Versilia (Italy), 31 August 2001. Romano Battaglia: Bene, cominciamo allora, la Grande Madre comincerà a parlare e spiegare come si può giungere alla realizzazione del Sé. Prego. [Well, let’s start then, the Great Mother will start talking and explaining how to get Self Realization. Please.] Shri Mataji [to Romano Battaglia]: It’s very kind of you to have invited Me to this meeting. He has asked Me to explain to you how you can reach to the state of self-realisation. It’s a very important thing to understand, because so far we have been living only with human awareness. Human awareness is not sufficient enough for us to lead a very happy life, especially collectively. But we have to know that our Creator is a very great, very understanding personality, is a Divine personality. And He has placed within us all the arrangements to get our self-realisation. Self-realisation is the connection with the all-pervading power of Divine Love. For that within us is placed, in the triangular bone called as sacrum, a power. All human beings have this power in the sacrum bone. Sacrum means sacred, and Greeks also knew that it was a sacred bone, so they called it sacrum. So it’s already there, and it has that power which is in three and a half coils. All of you have got it. Now only problem is how to raise this power to connect you to that Divine Power.Now there are little Read More …

Spirituality – The essence of life Holland Park School, London (England)

Follow-up Program (to the Albert Hall Public Programme),  Holland Park School,  Airlie Gardens, Campden Hill Rd, London W8 7AF, London, England, 16 July 2001. Very happy to see all of you here. Now I can’t say that you are the seekers but you are the ones who have found it. It’s something so fulfilling. Imagine in the olden days the custom was, I mean, it was so, that one guru could give realisation to one person, with very great reluctance! First they had to go through all kinds of tests, all kinds of tapasya as they call it, very, very strict penance. And out of that they would select one person to get Self-realisation. Imagine what you have got in such a short time! But, with that long period of ordeal, they developed a great sense of respecting their Self-realisation, of understanding what is this. Understanding their own powers, understanding their own duties. And they were not so many. One single person fighting the whole society with his lofty ideas. While today you are so many, all of you are in fraternity, in love with each other. Nobody is going to torture you, nobody is going to take you to task, but you yourself will feel like spreading Sahaja Yoga, giving love and life to people.   It will come spontaneously within you. Like a flower which has fragrance, like that you’ll have the fragrance of spirituality and people will suddenly recognise you because you are so different from others. Your temperament Read More …

VIP and Journalists Invitational Program Hotel Russell (The Principal London), London (England)

‘VIP’ and Journalists Invitational Program in Russell Hotel, 1-8 Russell Square, London WC1B 5BE  (UK), 15 July 2001. I thank you very much, all of you, for coming over for a small meeting that we are going to have and, it’s very important for you people who are responsible in life to understand what is the work of Sahaja Yoga and how important it is. I mean, now we have people all over the world, it’s working in 85 countries. In a country like Benin we have twenty thousand sahaja yogis. All this is…why? Because people are trying to find the truth, they are not satisfied with whatever they know. They want to know what is beyond and I started this work long time back. I think I have worked in England for at least 25 years. But, unfortunately, England is nowhere compared to other countries. Even Austria has ten times more people, Austria and Germany. What’s the reason? I think the newspapers. Your newspapers are not responsible, they are not at all responsible. Some may be, I am not saying all of them. But the newspapers that I have seen here, they never come and ask me anything, they never try to find out if there’s anything I’m doing that is good for people, which is essential, which has to be worked out. But somehow they take the very negative side. This is the main reason why people are lagging behind in knowing the truth. I’m sorry to say that. I have written in Read More …

We Have To Be Transformed Royal Albert Hall, London (England)

Public Program in Royal Albert Hall. London (UK), 14 July 2001. I bow to all the seekers of truth. Some of you have found the truth, some of you have not found it fully, and some of you have not found it at all. But if you look around in today’s situation, you’ll have to agree there’s a big turmoil going on. Countries after countries are taking to all kinds of wrong things. Lot of cold war is on, people are killing each other, destroying beautiful places, cutting each other’s throat for nothing at all. They are all human beings created by God. God Almighty has created them and has brought them to this level of human awareness. At this juncture one can’t see where are we going in a collective way. This is, where have we to reach – or is it our destiny? Is this the destiny of human beings, to be destroyed by each other for land or for anything else? Think of the whole world as one, and think what’s happening all over: every day we read newspaper, every day there is some sort of a horrible news about horrible things people are doing to each other, for no rhyme and reason. We have to think, what is the destiny? Where are we going? Are we going to hell or to Heaven? What is our situation around? Can we help it? What’s wrong with human beings is they are still in the complete control of ignorance. Read More …

Sahasrara Puja: To Break Sahasrara Campus, Cabella Ligure (Italy)

Sahasrara Puja. Cabella Ligure (Italy), 6 May 2001. Today, I bow to all the Sahaja Yogis who have found the Truth. There has been, from ages, the seeking for the Truth. And when people discovered that there’s no other way but to surrender to the Divine that you can find the truth, they did not know how to do it, how to work it out. There have been seekers all over the world. I went to Turkey and I was amazed there have been lots of Sufis, but their disciples were not realised souls. Because the Sufis also did not know how they got their Realisation. Such darkness existed around people who were seeking. All over the world, I find, when I was a little girl, that they are completely ignorant about how to find the Truth. So many were lost in all kinds of so-called religions and rituals. All kinds of rituals they used to do. Morning till evening, some sort of a ritual they would do. Whether they were Hindus, Christians, Muslims, they all believed that by doing all these rituals you will achieve something, that you will know the Truth, that you will get your Self-realisation. All such seekers went to wrong people and to wrong directions because they were really seeking from their heart. So they were very misleading, misleading and they were misled into such horrible black areas that they did not know what they were seeking, what they are supposed to seek, what they Read More …

Arrival Talk Milan–Malpensa Airport, Milan (Italy)

Malpensa. Milan (Italy) , 26 Aprile 2001. (At Mother’s arrival, She is covered by flowers. Sahaja Yogis welcome Her by singing “Vishwa Vandita” and “Aspettando Lei”) It’s very heartening to see so many of you coming to welcome Me. I feel so joyous I can’t express it in words. Your love is like the ocean which just moves from one person to another.It’s so great to come to Italy again. (Long clapping, followed by a “ola” of the present italian yogis. Shri Mataji shows a surprised expression and then laughs by heart) Italians have a very large heart. I have found out that this is like My own country. (Again a resounding clap and another “ola”. Shri Mataji bursts in laughter) They are here to enjoy love and to enjoy spirituality. And they are very spiritual people. And that is something so much joy-giving, that the whole world can receive spirituality from you. Italians have to go everywhere, and to spread the message of love. Because you have the power of love. Of pure love. And this pure love will definitely transform many people. We have to change this world which is full of problems. All alone, what can I do? They came to call Me to Turkey because they were having a financial crisis. And we had about 7,000 people in the hall. They are another great people. And you should be happy to know that within two days of My stay, the World Bank has given them 10 Read More …

Kundalini – Desire of God Almighty Lütfi Kirdar Congress Palace, Istanbul (Turkey)

Public Program, Lütfi Kirdar Congress Palace, Istanbul (Turkey),  25 April 2001 I bow to all the seekers of truth. I have been coming to Turkey in the last ten years. And I found this place is so much filled with spirituality.  Perhaps we have had so many Sufis here, must be something in this country is that there were so many Sufis were created. And I have read about them and I have read about Rumi and all others.  And I find they described the qualities of a Sufi the state of his mind, very beautiful. But they didn’t say how created, how to became Sufis. They described of course  very well  and absolutely  truthfully  whatever was the achievement. But nobody could say that how they achieved it. Even in the Koran you see how Muhammed Sahab has described  that he went through seventh heavens  on a white horse.  He was a poet and the whole thing was so poetic. The white horse was this Kundalini.  The more you will know about Kundalini you will see how poetically. He had described all these seven heavens he crossed over. So, unless and until you are self realized soul as he has said “know thy self”. Unless and until you know your self you can not understand any one of this scriptures. They say, all of them say the same thing  in different ways and also in poetry. And it is difficult for common people to understand. In no way there is Read More …

Devi Puja Burj 2000, Sharjah (United Arab Emirates)

Devi Puja, Burj 2000, Sharjah (United Arab Emirates), April 21st, 2001, (very poor sound) I didn’t know you were waiting here. But you are now with those great guys [unsure]. But I didn’t know about your program that you were going to be here. And I had to finish something today.It’s all right. I have seen Sahaja Yogis when they have to wait, they are more together, they are more collective and they enjoy much more. So, it is not that they’ll feel angry or boring. I’ve seen in many cases, if the plane is late, they would all be there, nicely sitting, enjoying, laughing, even if it is late by four hours, five hours, doesn’t matter.There is no passport in our hands. We are in the ocean of Vishwa Nirmala Dharma. So, whatever we have is all nothing but joy, out of this ocean of love. So, we are already in the ocean of love. And we are enjoying the bliss of that. I know there are some misunderstanding sometimes, all kinds of things happen. But still, we’re progressing. Despite that, you’ll progress and progress very well in every action, in every land. I’ve seen in St Petersburg, [inaudible] I was so amazed to see Mister [inaudible] the wisdom. He said I have done it, but no. Actually, it’s something great. So, the enthusiasm that is going on, that comes through Sahaja Yoga. But you must meditate, you must go [inaudible], you must attend programs, and you must improve. Read More …

Birthday Puja: If you really love your country, you can never be dishonest New Delhi (India)

Birthday Puja, Delhi (India), 21 March 2001. Today you all have decided to celebrate my 78th Birthday. You have put beautiful balloons, as you put for a child on his birthday, with such loving hands. Yesterday, as I told you, you have to find out about yourself. Just try to find out also, as you love me, how much you can love others. It will be much easier to find out through introspection how much you love others and how much you care for others. If that happens, many problems of Sahaja Yoga will be solved in no time. Even in Sahaja Yoga, what I am told, that people are still hankering after money. They think it is a place where they can make some money. I am surprised. This is not the area where you can really work out that. You will be exposed in no time. On the contrary, if you people are worried about your powers in Sahaja Yoga, as leaders and deputy leaders and I don’t know what else, then also you are sadly mistaken. That’s not the place – for that you can join politics; or else for making money you can go to race-courses, or some place. If you are coming to Sahaja Yoga, what you have to get is an ocean of love within your heart, and to see that in others also. It’s a love – which helps you to do everything so smoothly, so beautifully. As I have always said, that Read More …

Birthday Felicitations: Human Beings don’t know what powers they have New Delhi (India)

Birthday Felicitations. Delhi (India), 20 March 2001. Sir C.P.’s Talk: (not transcribed) Shri Mataji’s Talk:  I bow to all those who have found the truth and those who are still trying to find. The greatest problem of human beings is, surprising, that they don’t know themselves. They don’t know what powers they have. They don’t know what properties they have. They don’t know to what height they can rise. This is the main problem of ignorance about yourself. If you could just peep in your heart and start thinking about the spiritual life that you could have, you would know you are a treasure, treasure of powers of love, powers of justice and powers of wisdom. The problem is we have no idea as to what we are and Sahaja Yogis also, they are so humble that they do not realize what powers they have, and sometimes I find they are little shy to talk about Sahaja Yoga or to tell about others because they think it might be their ego that is speaking. Now, I have to tell you one thing that ego will always deflate, it will always deflate when you will face the society. Unless and until you face others your ego cannot come down. Now, how? The ego is there because when you think that others are better than you, when you are afraid to say that they have to transform, and when you are worried that you are being very aggressive. If you are a Read More …

Weddings Ganapatipule (India)

Weddings, Ganapatipule, India, 26-12-2000 [Talk to brides] I want to congratulate you all for getting married in the Sahaja system. We are here to establish a new culture of our married life. It’s not the old style that we had or the new style that we were going to have. Actually marriages should be made very much comfortable, beautiful and enjoyable. If that cannot be done, it’s better not to marry. You don’t want to marry to make yourself less level and make others less level. So the first thing one has to remember that these girls that they are marrying are coming from another family, from another country, from another standards. So try to understand them. One thing I have seen, if you have love for your wife, then you can solve all the problems. What a wife wants is a love, attention from the husband. If you could do that, then you are very well off to begin with. You can also find out what does she like, what she doesn’t like. It is the oneness of character that will help. But that is only possible by understanding each other, not by forcing your culture or her culture on her, but by observing what is Sahaja culture. As a husband, of course, you have a higher position in the married life because you are the earning member and you are the one who has to look after the family as far as financial side is concerned. But the Read More …

Talk about all Chakras Errol Douglas, London (England)

Public Program. Errol Douglas Gallery, London (UK) – 28 September 2000. I thank Mr. Emro for inviting Me to such a unique type of gathering. The subject is very interesting that how Sahaja Yoga can help beauty. Now Sahaja Yoga, as you know, here it is shown that there is a power in your triangular bone, here, as you see. And this is in every human being – every. And this power, has to be awakened. Then it passes through these six centers. The seventh one low below there, the number one, and pierces through your fontanel bone area and connects you to the Divine. As a result of that, all these centers who are responsible, they are responsible for our physical, mental, emotional and also spiritual being, all of them are enlightened and integrated. It, this power is in everyone but to talk about it, people don’t believe in it. You must have the experience of it. And once you have the experience, you’ll be amazed, how many things happen to you which you cannot even imagine. It’s very kind of him to have called me here, that way I’ve met many people of that kind but nobody has tried to invite others who could share this experience. Now coming to the point of beauty, I must tell you the Divine is the most beautiful thing, because it creates all beautiful things. You see in the nature, every leaf is different from another. Such a variety. Also, if you Read More …

On Torsion Area Holiday Inn London - Kensington Forum Hotel, London (England)

2000-09-23 VIP Reception, London, UK, DP-RAW I bow to all the seekers of Truth. These are special times that we have so many seekers of Truth. Surprisingly so many people these days want to know what is the truth. And the result some of them are lost also. But what is the truth, the truth is that you are not this body, this mind, this emotions this intelligence so called but you are the true spirit. All the scriptures have said that unless and until you know yourselves how you will know the divine. Because if we don’t know ourselves really we are not equipped to know the divine and so to know yourself is so important. This one is a thing people don’t understand because mostly they are written in poetry. And all of them has said that you should know yourself but how would you know yourself your self is within and   not without. So how to enter inside to know yourself is the problem. This problem is really so great that keeps out many people from the knowledge of knowing. Now I must tell you about myself that I myself has felt that people have a big big problem of knowing themselves though I knew myself very well. How to make others knowledgeable about themselves so I tried first to see problems of the people . Many people that my own I should say my subtler intelligence what’s the matter why can’t they feel themselves why Read More …

Interview Milan (Italy)

Interview, Milan, Italy, 2000-09-19 Interviewer: To be born a realized soul is a gift from God. Shri Mataji: Of course. Of course. Apart from that these days are many children who are children of the Sahaja Yogis are born realized. Yes, it’s very surprising that I think all the great souls want to take birth with the Sahaja Yogis. Interviewer: What is your opinion about hatha yoga? Hatha yoga is a thing which was preached by or written by Patanjali thousands of years back. And in those days, first they used to cleanse the person. It is Ashtanga, eight. There are eight Anga, means parts. And one of the parts is the wee bit of that is this exercise, the physical exercise. Shri Mataji: So his style was to cleanse a person first physically, then mentally, then emotionally, go on and on and on. And then he would get realization. One in a million would get realization. That was the tradition. So I have thought of the modern times. People have no time for anything. So Sahaja Yoga is a very quick method. First get your realization and then you correct yourself. And no obligation. You yourself know about yourself. Shri Mataji: For example, some Sahaja Yogi might come and say, Mother, I have a very bad Agnya. It means I have a very bad ego. But normally nobody says like that. That I am full of ego. But nobody says because suddenly introspection starts. And you want to correct Read More …
