Smoking… is bad for the Vishuddhi. If when you feel the urge for a smoke, you just think of your heart or of Mother, then the desire for the smoke will go away (1980-0613); You only smoke when you are bored (1979-0507); The left Vishuddhi can be in problem, if you smoke (1981-1005); When we smoke, or take tobacco, the left Vishuddhi catches (1985-0901); Tobacco… was meant to be an insecticide, and was not given to us for smoking. Will eventually go out of evolution (1981-0328)

Once somebody came to me and said… ‘Mother, I can’t do without smoking… I have to smoke’… I said ‘Better smoke then… but you can’t be a Sahaja Yogi’… ‘If you are my son… you cannot smoke… it looks bad’… because a smoking Sahaja Yogi is a funny caricature, you know… he gave up smoking… can you imagine (1997-0823.1)
