The fifth Chakra (1981-0829), which exists behind the base of the neck, having 16 petals, and manifests outwardly as the Cervical Plexus. It is associated with the thyroid gland. This chakra is of the greatest importance, and in terms of evolution, developed to the maximum, when we raised our heads from the animal to the human stage, and was the balance between our ego and superego (1981-0330); Ego and Superego start from here (1981-1004); Shri Krishna, the complete incarnation of the Virata, the Primordial Being, with the witness quality controls this centre (1981-1005); Is represented by America, and Saturn (16 planets); Controls the lymphatic system, ears, outside of the eyes, nose, neck (1981-1004; 1981-0330), throat, face (1982-0711) and teeth (1988-0710)… and all the mastoid muscles, the tongue, the cheeks and also the balls of the eyes (1979-0722)

Vishuddhi has a very important role in Sahaja Yoga – it connects to the Virata, and the Virata communicates through Vishuddhi (1983-0202); The Vishuddhi looks after the cooling function – the liver gives heat, whilst the cooling is done by Vishuddhi. If the Vishuddhi is good, then there is a bloom on the face, a glow, a sparkle in the eyes. If you take the name of God in vain, Vishuddhi catches (1983-0202); The centre which is absolutely Holy, where everything is absent (1981-0330); At Vishuddhi, are the 16 vowels, the 16 bija mantras – also there are 16 sub-chakras, the 16 petals (1983-0202)

Qualities include collective communication (MME), sweetness in talking (1983-0202); Also the qualities of discretion, democracy, freedom, noble ideas, responsibility (1983-1001); That’s why most of us have bad Vishuddhis, because we do not take responsibility… and we have to be much, much, much, more responsible than ordinary government servants are (1983-0821); This centre can catch, if we feel ‘too responsible’, and can result in tensions and headaches – the remedy is to witness, and realise that everything is done by the Divine (1989-0801); If this chakra is spoilt, we take to negativity more easily, and want special things for ourselves. If not spoiled, then the hands work better (1983-0202); When there is ‘cold’, you feel it on the right hand… is the physical, as I said. On the left hand, if it is… then the person feels guilty… mostly he may be Catholic (1979-0608.2)

To keep Vishuddhi OK, we can do the following… eat the butter… take it on hot water, so that it lines the epithelial cells, and clean throats every morning by gargling; Protect the throat from cold conditions, and if we speak, speak of Sahaja Yoga (1983-0202); Shri Krishna is very fond of ghee or butter… so when you rub my Feet with say butter, your Vishuddhi will improve… ‘you’ know that (1980-0927)

One exercise for Vishuddhi is to put your head on the ground with your feet on the bed, and to push the body more and more onto the bed, and to let the weight rest on the Vishuddhi – from this position you should see the Photo. If it is left Vishuddhi turn the face to the right, if it is the right Vishuddhi, turn the face to the left whilst watching the Photo (1979-0422)

Shri Krishna resides in our Vishuddhi chakra… in the centre he resides as Shri Krishna… and on the left hand side his power, Vishnumaya, his sister resides… there he resides as Gopala, as the one who lived in Gokul and played as a child. On the right hand side he resides as the king who ruled in Dwarika… the king, Shri Krishna. These are the three sides of our Vishuddhi (1986-0823)

Vishuddhi chakra has a speciality. When human beings raised their heads upwards from Mother Earth towards the sky – the sky is… Ether is… Shri Krishna’s nature – then this Vishuddhi chakra developed into a different dimension… and people started developing ego and superego… superego was already developed… but the ego developed in such a way that it started suppressing the superego (1986-0823)

Now you have reached to the human level… and to rise above the human level, what you have to do is to seek your complete freedom… and for that Vishuddhi chakra is going to help you a lot. On this Vishuddhi chakra we have to pay full attention… it is such a complicated chakra… it has all the 16 vowels of the devanagari script emitting out of the sound of the shakti, the Kundalini, that is passing through it… so all the vowels are heard on this chakra. Without the vowels in the devanagari, you cannot write anything… vowels are the sustainance… are the power that supports every consonant… so it’s important that our vowels have to be fully nourished and respected (1986-0823)

The movement of the neck… as you have seen… in all international life if you see… everybody has practically the same… even those who do not hear… or do not understand your language… you can nod like this, say no like this… and everybody understands… that this is yes or no. But too much of nodding is not a good sign… you just have to say ‘alright’ or ‘I understand’ that’s all… you have to use your voice instead of nodding like this all the time… is very bad for the Vishuddhi chakra (1986-0823)

Because of Vishuddhi there are so many problems… like Angina, Spondylitis… sometimes people lose their voices completely… sometimes they have all the time coughing. Above all is the centre of discrimination, which only comes when you are free people. Til you are biased… til you have your own concepts, you cannot be discrete… and that’s the one point where one must understand that to achieve your complete freedom, you have to get your Vishuddhi chakra cleared out. First and foremost is you must speak in a sweet manner, not artificially, but sweetly… speak in a manner that another person likes it… Satyam Vade… Priyam Vade… speak the truth… don’t tell the lies (1986-0823)

Some people think… by their talks they can cheat you… but actually they are cheating themselves. All such people who cheat others by sweet talks, by artificial talks or by some manoeuvring… go to such a horrible state… in this Kali Yuga especially… they are cursed, and they get exposed… and people know about them that these are the greatest liars ever known. Now the times are coming when all such people will be exposed very much more than they have ever been exposed… so be careful not to think that you can cheat… in Sahaja Yoga especially you cannot cheat. Those who try to cheat, sometimes think that we can befool Mother… we can somehow or other carry on… if you sit in front of Mother, she won’t know what we are up to… it’s not so… I may not say… I may use my discretion not to say… I may allow you to have a long way… but be careful… do not come into my illusions… I am very elusive. When I play my illusions, you will suddenly find yourself in a very difficult situation… and then you will say ‘Mother why am I in this situation’… so this is one of the qualities of Shri Krishna, that he is the one who becomes elusive. In his elusiveness he exposes people. There are so many stories of Shri Krishna, in which he has elusively acted to give… greater joy to some people… to give nice lessons to some people… and sometimes to punish (1986-0823)

Vishuddhi Chakra looks after so many things, especially your skin, your eyes… people who have bad Vishuddhi can have all kinds of funny troubles with their skin… of course it has to do with your liver, but skin is… the way it shines… the way it glows… depends on how you smile… how you look at the world. Many people have a habit of smiling for nothing at all… especially women I have seen… they just smile stupidly… that’s not proper… one should not be stupid… stupidity is against Shri Krishna (1986-0823)

Now eyes are very important… and eyes in a way are very much looked after by Vishuddhi… because the muscles of the eyes are looked after by Vishuddhi. You must have noticed that there are some people who come to me… their eyes go on… like this… those who are keeping the eyes open all the time are having Supraconscious bhoots… and those who are flickering their eyes are having the Subconscious bhoots (1986-0823)

Some people have a habit of keeping the eyes in an angle all the time… they never see you straight… they think sometimes it’s fashionable… and some of them have such eyes that they’ll go on looking and pouring their greedy eyes onto others, or their lusty eyes onto others… this is the worst thing you can do to your eyes… because such people easily can become blind. Such people may have trouble of the eyes… specially reddening of the eyes can come to such people very much (1986-0823)

So one has to be careful to keep the eyes very pure… the eyes of a Yogeshwara… who was Shri Krishna. He played with Radha – he married 5 women who were the 5 elements – 16000 women he married… they were his 16000 powers… but he was Yogeshwara… he had no lust in his eyes, in his mind about that at all… he was beyond that… he had no lust in his eyes about these women that he had. Of course I don’t expect you to be Shri Krishna… but you have your wife… those who do not have wives, must look forward to a wife… that we’ll get a wife and think of a wife who will be your own, so that your eyes will not fall onto every woman (1986-0823)

Some people have a habit of showing anger with the eyes… and the angry eyes are another dangerous thing to do with your eyes… because they can become mesmeric. If you start putting your eyes onto something and concentrating on it, your eyes might become mesmeric… means bhoots will start coming out of your eyes. First of all you catch bhoots in your eyes… they settle down there… and then they will be falling on other people as bhoots… it’s a very very dangerous thing to go on looking at something continuously with concentration (1986-0823)

Now the greatest freewill comes from Vishuddhi chakra… and that’s why they call him Yogeshwara – he is the Ishwara of yoga. The establishment of yoga is possible… when you completely surrender yourself to Shri Krishna… means what… means all your balances will be established… you go into complete balance… and that balance is complete because Vishnu who is the Incarnation for sustaining the dharma… who is responsible for giving you the balance… becomes complete in the form of Shri Krishna. That’s why he said ‘you leave all the dharmas… surrender all of them to me’… so all the dharmas, if you put at the Lotus Feet of Shri Krishna, means if you follow his ideas, then all your dharmas are balanced. There are so many dharmas… pati dharma… patni dharma… rashtra dharma… but he says forget all the dharmas… surrender them to me… that is at Vishuddhi. It means that it all gets sublimated… it all gets complete… because he is the Collective Being… he is the Virat… because he is the integrated form of all the dharmas… and he is the Virat in our brain… he represents our brain. When this Virat in us is awakened fully… we automatically become dharma ourselves (1986-0823)

So now you have become dharmatit… means you have entered into the Kingdom of God… into the Virata’s conditions… and there your condition is such, your state is such that you are dharma… if you try to do adharma, you suffer… if you try to do wrong you suffer… I don’t have to tell you to be righteous… there’s no need… I don’t have to tell you to tell the truth… or don’t steal… I don’t have to tell you all these things. You will follow Christ… or Krishna… automatically… sahaj. You become the dharma of Virat… now what is the dharma of the Virat… of Shri Krishna… is collectivity (1986-0823)
