Translation from Marathi:
Now I thank the Sahaj yogis of India on behalf of everyone that they did all the work peacefully, not infighting with each other, not landing anyone in the soup, not causing anyone embarrassment, not showing any anger, and doing everything sensibly and setting a good example in front of them (foreigners). They think that you are very great men, devotees of God, wise, having a nice and balanced life, and are extremely moral. This means in short everyone thinks you are Shivaji Maharaj, and to such Shivaji Maharajas, you all, I bow to you.
Now I have to tell you that in us sometimes it so happens that words and deeds do not match, because we have so many ideals here that hypocrisy enters into a man. We put up a pretence of being very nice, which these people cannot see through, as they are straightforward people. They have nothing concealed in them, which goes to such an extent that we will say they are shameless, but in them whatever is there, it is visible to everyone. They don’t keep any malice in their hearts, but in us this art is very advanced. So we show ourselves as very great to others, but inside we have many defects. So, we will be harmed in this case. When we talk to people, we say such things that people will feel God Almighty has himself descended on this earth, but if we look closely at their character or their life, then we feel that there is no bigger demon than them. And demons like these have gone abroad and swindled these people (foreigners). These people outwardly talk very sweetly, very nicely and act as if they are extremely innocent and loving, and after going abroad they have fleeced all their (foreigners’) money, made them hungry, destroyed their state, and they got respect and honour abroad. Then we all have a little bit of this quality that we can manage being outwardly very nice and be different inside.
These people (foreigners) cannot do this even if they want to. They even ask Me, “But he says he is so nice. So how can it be? I mean, if someone is a bad person among us then he will state clearly, ‘I am a bad man. I am cruel’.” So I said, “We don’t do this. If we say this we will get a beating. So we do not tell. Instead, they say, ‘I am extremely good.’ Even if he is an extremely cruel demon he will say, ‘I am extremely nice and a great man,’ but what he is inside, he will not say. I mean, we do not feel the responsibility to admit what we are inside.”
But in Sahaja yogis, outside and inside there is no difference. We should be the same outside and inside. The man who becomes the same outside and inside, ander baaher ek hi Janu, who has no difference in his thoughts and deeds, is a true saint. Outside and inside. If I tell you not to drink and I Myself sit drinking, then what will you say? This is a simple example, but if I am an Indian then I will drink in secrecy and tell everyone not to drink, and I will drink in secrecy. This is the Indian style. And the English style is telling you that drinking alcohol means you are going towards God. I am drinking, so you also drink. This is the style of the English or foreigners’ style. But both the styles are wrong. In their style even if we say everything is exposed, still it is foolishness, and even if we conceal everything nicely, we are really not as nice as we seem. We should keep this in mind. If we are surrendered to God, God helps us. He blesses us with innocence by which we cannot put up fake pretences. Where is the wisdom in pretending to ourselves? There is no meaning in it. By the fear of society or for the sake of show, we show we are ideals and we are nice. This gives one the impression that in society evil does not spread much, but by that egoistic behaviour and hypocrisy we are never going to benefit. So why don’t we benefit ourselves? We should think like this, that by doing goodness and good deeds they will benefit us.
Now people of old times used to say that saints always had trouble, and they always had grief. What happiness did they get from God? They faced so many crises, and the rest of the people lived in happiness. But in a way if we look at it, no one was happy. So, let’s look around. We see lots of people who seem happy, people who are rich, people in power, people who have huge empires, but if you look closely, no one is unhappier than them. They are in deep misery. If I tell you their grief, it is as big as mountains, and they are crushed under it. They are as good as mad. They don’t understand what to do. They do an injustice and then they feel bad about it. It must be so! If someone hurts anyone, then it returns back to him. The torturing hand also suffers. So they are in great grief. If they are cruel to anyone, then that cruelty affects them also.
We went to see those people who think they are very rich and very prosperous to their home. The day before yesterday I was in Pune. There is a gentleman who is very rich. He invited me to his house. About two or three years back, his wife and his son were very big alcoholics, and his daughter-in-law was on the verge of having tuberculosis. They were facing such a big calamity, but her husband was a drunkard and they had lots of money. The woman could not give up alcohol, come what may. She was like big-time alcoholics, and they were so prosperous that you cannot even imagine. So he told Me, “Mataji, I will give you lots of money. Please cure my wife.” I said, “I don’t need any money. I will cure your wife.” And you will be surprised to know that the day before yesterday both the son and his mother came. They had quit drinking completely and were completely normal. The rich man said, “Mother, I do not want this money. Due only to this money all the grief and penury has come into my house. All this trouble has only come from money. This is the true penury in the sense that I have so much money with me but I have no support from my wife and my son, and my daughter-in-law was falling ill. So this is true penury that I had. So I do not want this money. You put this money anywhere. Put this to good use. I don’t want this money.”
Other rich people whom I saw, some were caught up with false gurus, some were caught somewhere else, and there were misery and illness in their homes. Someone started running after money. So he went to the races where he lost everything, blah, blah. He ditched his wife and children and he kept women, began drinking and all this happens. This means that if we look at someone and say, “See how successful he is,” tomorrow if he falls from grace he will be lying on the road for days and no one will look at him. People say to him, “When you were in power you behaved like this. So now we do not care for you.” His aura of power is also gone. I mean, now there is also no meaning in his power. In this way, whatever we say makes a person successful, but when a person gets it, he is not happy. Have you ever seen a drunkard being garlanded after his death? We never hear, “He was such a big drunkard. Let’s build his statue,” or “This person was very cruel. He ill-treated everyone, but he was in power. Let’s build his statue.” Have you seen this anywhere? There is no statue of Hitler anywhere, one who was very well-regarded at one time and did so much cruelty. There is no statue of him anywhere. This means that the person who lives a bad life will never get recognition ever. So, superficially we may feel that he became so big and successful for the time being, but if we look with foresight, that man never gets peace.
So, after this we must understand that true prosperity is in attaining your spirit. But now this Mahayoga that is started, at the time of this Mahayoga we are going to get true prosperity in every way, as this time all the seven chakras have come on Sahasrara. As all the seven chakras have joined on Sahasrara, due to their integration we get the Laxmi principle. Similarly, we get the principle of Bhramadev, meaning all kinds of creativity will come to you, and you will start writing poetry. Also, if we are afraid of something or we are facing some loss or someone is attacking us, then all that attack is negated, and if someone still attacks us then he is destroyed. Such a situation will come. You should try to attain this level.
After that, at the level of Vishuddhi is the place of Shri Krishna. There you will get complete Kshema (wellbeing). As Krishna has said, “I will give you Kshema. If you get your yoga, I will give you Kshema.” All kinds of Kshema means beginning with good physique and a glow on the face. The whole life of the person blooms like a lotus. He gets the witness state, peace and mastery like Shri Krishna. He can do with people as he pleases and put them on the right track. He gets a kind of authority and sovereignty.
After that, on coming to Agnya chakra he gets a reservoir of forgiveness. He is not hurt by anyone or anything. He forgives everyone. Nothing sticks to him. Whatever anyone says to him or if anyone hurts him, he forgives. And this forgiveness has so many powers, it’s as if forgiveness forms a big mace and goes and puts that man in his place who had hurt him. I mean, either that man is corrected or he is destroyed. I mean, you have so big a blessing of Agnya chakra. Also on Agnya chakra are Ekadasha rudra, meaning that those people who have ill-treated you or troubled you, their Ekadasha gets caught up and they are destroyed. This means on one side you are nurtured, and you get love, growth and protection, while on the other side those who try to hamper your growth are completely destroyed. This is the magic of Sahaja Yoga today. This means it is the work of the seven chakras.
Then, Sahasrara being My place, those who reach Sahasrara and establish themselves, once their Sahasrara opens up, are blessed with Mother’s love in all ways, and whatever is sweet and fruitful in it, they get all the kinds of its tastes. Man feels truly blessed. He becomes aware that he is completely secure and he swims in the ocean of joy. His powers increase tremendously, and people give him recognition. A lot of people who have never spoken publicly become big and famous speakers. They develop oratory skills and they give realization to lots of people. In this way, the world is getting a new leadership which was predicted fourteen thousand years ago. So, this is the time to make true the fourteen-thousand-year-old prediction, and whatever has to be done is to be done only by your hands. You will be such big people that you have a place on My Sahasrara, you are sitting in My Sahasrara, and a lot of work will be done by your hands. And to do the work we need capabilities. We need to give up pretences, quit being hypocrites, stick to truth, be straightforward. We should ignore small things and look at the bigger picture. We should not get upset with each other, nor get angry or distressed with each other, and one must be humble and shine in one’s own glory. Even if only this is done, it is a lot. Everything is in your own hands, everything is near you, everything is given to you by God Almighty. So, it’s not like something special has to happen. It is a very simple thing to happen, and it is already predicted that it will manifest. You only need to stand in this holy Ganges. Keeping your legs close to each other, nicely you need to stand your ground. If you manage this a little, everything can be done. In this way once Sahaja Yoga spreads, everyone is going to be blessed by it.
So I bless you that you get those benefits and you bloom in it. My infinite blessings to you.
May God bless you all.
May God bless you all.
