People of the west are aggressive towards the cultures of others. Aggression whether given or taken, both are equally wrong (1979-0422); So aggressiveness must be given up by men. Also, because they are Sahaja Yogis now, they have to take to feminine qualities… and not of fighting; And if women fight… they are not women, you see (1983-0821)

If we try to overpower the matter, getting overactive with it or being over-efficient, then our ego develops, and we go into violence… because if you produce more, then you have to be violent about it… otherwise you do not know how to sell it… you become sort of an aggressive businessman (1980-0927)


The question of domination, whether of the woman dominating the man, or the man dominating the woman, is absolutely out of the question in Sahaja Yoga. There is going to be no domination of any kind, but one has to see that the left side is on the left side, and the right side is on the right side, and should not start demanding what the other side has got, like the men wanting to have children, or the women wanting to grow beards and moustaches (1987-1230.1)

So on both the sides, of men or women, we have to understand, that if you are a man, and if you are dominating man, it’s alright… but if you are a woman, and if you are dominating, then it’s a difficult thing for Sahaja Yoga to cure… because you have lost your quality of being a woman… at least you have to be a woman to begin with. Now the men when they are dominating, they have to understand that they have to be compassion… to be kind… to be considerate… but never subservient… never subservient (1983-0821)
