Poor people drink much more than the rich people do (1980-0927); It goes against one’s awareness… Mohammed warned against drinking (1983-0131); The worst for Lakshmi Principle is drinking… is alcohol – they say in India, that a bottle comes from one side, and the Lakshmi runs away from the other. Sahaja Yogis don’t need to drink… they give up drinking… and thus the Lakshmi Principle can be established much more easily (1996-0716)

The Mother never says ‘don’t drink’, but you yourself, after Realisation just give it up, because… you start feeling the Joy (1979-0507); I never tell ‘don’t drink’… you go ahead… have cancer… then come to me. Have your liver absolutely shattered… be a drunken fellow… then you come to me. When Realisation takes place… immediately the priorities change… absolutely… you’ll be amazed. Then they say ‘Mother we can’t drink’… I said what happens… they say ‘we vomit’; You see… if you get the nectar of life, then you don’t run after frivolous things… useless things (1979-0608.1)

Alcohol… was not intended for us to drink, but was provided for us as a polish. Gin is good for polishing diamonds. However if we drink it, then our liver suffers, being also polished, and so preventing the transfer of the heat into the blood. The result is that we become hot tempered and angry. We also can become confused and wobbly when we drink alcohol, which is against our attention (1981-0328); Alcohol was denounced by all the Primordial Masters (1981-0330)… is that which is drunk by those who are not the Devas (1997-0600); Alcohol is the rotten wine – you have to rot it for days together, and the more rotten it is then it is regarded as something very expensive (1987-1225)
