Christmas Puja, Ganapatipule (India), 25 December 2000

[Shri Mataji speaks first in Hindi for about sixteen minutes]
[Scanned from Divine Cool Breeze – Translation from Hindi to English]

The reason for celeberaling this auspicious day is the birth of the Christ. Very little is known about Jesus Christ because in young age he left his house and after returning he lived only up to the age of thirty year But dunng this short period he did tremendous work After his death, his twelve disciples spread Christianity. They also faced problems as you have to face sometimes But these twelve disciples did tremendous work. Their followers. In the beginning, were known as Gnostics, meaning ‘Those who have known’ The origin of this word is from ‘Gna’ meaning To Know’ These people were harassed and tortured by the priests of that time So in the beginning it was very difficult to convince people of Christ s thoughts People were not seif realised Jesus Christ had said it again and again ‘Know Thyself. ‘Know Thyself Without realising the significance of self realisation people started spreading the religion. Without knowing the Self, religion could not be spread because gradually such religion becomes Adharmas Same thing happened with Christian religion It is written that Jesus Chnst went to a wedding party There he put his finger in the water and converted it tn to wine It is written in Hebrew language that
the taste of this water changed in to that of the wine. ‘Wine’ in Hebrew Christian people twisted the meaning of the wine and took it for alcohol and Christians took to alcohol and accepted It in their religion Alcohol is Iho cause of all Adharma. ail sins It gives human beings distracted attention Its very easy to change the taste of the water I may also do it by putting my hand m it. But people took so much to alcohol that I am astonished! In England, I saw, they dunk alcohol Whether some one is born or dies, you go to someone’s house immediately they offer you drink Without drinking they do not know how to talk to you Alcohol is so much prevalent But it will be injustice to say that Jesus Chnst advocated the dunking of Alcohol. None of the incarnations could tell to go against religion In India also tne use of alcohol has become prevalent. When we were young during the time of British rule, Indians were not used to drinking May be that alcohol was consumed by some highly placed people, otherwise it was not used. Now even common men could be seen annking. No one thinks of the miserable state alcohol drags the person in. Orunkards. then commit sins. moaning the juice of the grapes Bui Christian people twisted the meaning of the wine and took it for alcohol and Christians took to alcohol and accepted It in their religion Alcohol is Iho cause of all Adharma. ail sins It gives human beings distracted attention Its very easy to change the taste of the water I may also do it by putting my hand m it. But people took so much to alcohol that I am astonished! In England, I saw, they dunk alcohol Whether some one is born or dies, you go to someone’s house immediately they offer you drink Without drinking they do not know how to talk to you Alcohol is so much prevalent But it will be injustice to say that Jesus Chnst advocated the dunking of Alcohol. None of the incarnations could tell to go against religion In India also tne use of alcohol has become prevalent. When we were young during the time of British rule, Indians were not used to drinking May be that alcohol was consumed by some highly placed people, otherwise it was not used. Now even common men could be seen annking. No one thinks of the miserable state alcohol drags the person in. Orunkards. then commit sms. The first thing I want to tell you rs that the drinking by the Christians is not a religious activity Alcohol is made in the Church of Rome To commit sins (Adharma) in the name of religion (Dharma)l It is unpardonable s*n That ts how people accept all the evils
The aim ot Jesus Christ was to open the centre ol your Agnya and to achieve that purpose He got Himself crucified and then He resurrected. It appears to be a miracle but for the Divinity there t$ no miracle as such. He proved that human beings could rise above the centre of Agnya and on this centre he told two mantras which we call Beei Mantras – Ham and Ksham’ Ksham’ means to forgive. Ksham is the biggest mantra The ego of the person who knows how to forgive, gets destroyed One is proud of $mall»smalt things. For example if you toil someone to sit on the earth, Ns ego gets hurt If some one is told to sit m the chair he will reply. This chair is very small, why have you given it to me7’ Everyone has some expectation about him and if his expectations are not fulfilled, his ego immediately comes up. Unknowingly some times such things could be done but the egoistical people take it as their insult Such people make their condition very miserable All the time they think they are being insulted and humiliated He is always obsessed with this thought and he draws negative meaning of whatever is told to him So we have to think ol what Jesus Christ had ihought He said. ’Forgive those who have tress passed against you’ Now see the results if you forgive everyone You will neither suffer nor get disturbed mentaly. You will not think of the person whom you have forgiven Nothing could go against you because you forgive everyone We get this power from the centre of Agnya. The person whose Agnya is clear forgives everyone If we donot forgive we torture ourselves and play rn the hands of others, who assume power over us ‘Forgiveness’ ts the greatest message that Jesus Christ has given to mankind.
Second is ‘Ham’ It has altogether different meaning. Ham means To Know Thyself.’ You have to know that you aro the Spirit. You are not this body. mind, bram or ego You are the Spin! When you know this ‘Ham’ then it will be clear to you that you are the Atma The ‘Spirit’ means that alt the ego. foolishness, ignorance that we have m our mind, are meaningless At) these negativities have absolutely no place in the Pure Spint You are very pure,
So he told two things, the first is To Forgive everyone Knowingly or unknowingly if someone troubles you, you should forgive him You will not get tortured but if you donot forgive then you torture yourself because another person *s sitting nicely. So you must develop the habit of forgiveness
Second thing that he told us is that ‘You are the Spirit1 Know this Spirit, the Self No one can touch the spmt. can destroy it. no one can torture it. If you are that spirit then you should be established in it But to achieve this Atm- Tattva the awakaning of Kundalini is necessary First »s to work out the awakening of the Kundahm and then to get established in it Untiil you are established you will remain entangled in stupidies So one should know how to be established with in. to remain with in thyself. When you achieve this state, you will feel the extreme joy within and nothing will disturb you When you get established in this aura of peace, then you will be surprised, you wont worry about small small things You will be always drenched in the joy of Spin!
To attain the Spmt. the awakening of kundaltni is essential, Without attaining awakening this is impossible But some of the awakened people also get confused They do not go in depth The central point is your Agnya If you look at it then you will come to know that it is contusing you. Because of it you are entangled, caught in different thoughts and having different problems But when you cross this centre of Agnya and go beyond it then this problem will be over That is why this centre is very significant It is written in the Bible that those who apply vermillion on their forehead will be saved They could be none else but Sahaia Yogis Its a stupendous task Jesus Chnst had only twelve disciples but you are thousands and thousands Had you put one thousandth labour that they pul. the spreading of Sahaja Yoga would have been much more. I depend upon you people You are my sole support and I hope you will spread Sahaja Yoga in the whole world

[English Transcript]

很抱歉我要説印度話,因為大部份在這裏的人,只明白印度語。當我在國外時,我常常說英語,只說英語,所以現在我想作一點改變。

有關耶穌基督的偉大的降生,我告訴他們祂是懷着非常偉大的使命而降生,可以說是其中一個最偉大的使命,因為祂想開啟非常壓迫的額輪,這是從未有人做過的。為此祂必須犧牲祂的生命,只有犧牲祂的生命,額輪才可以開啓。祂是完全明白並知道這是將會發生——祂要接受這犧牲。正如我們所知,祂是神性的人性。祂這樣做是完全沒有問題,但祂想或許有其他途徑去開啟這額輪。

祂是要犧牲祂的生命。在這犧牲,祂顯示若你要超越世俗、表面的生命,便作某程度的犧牲。犧牲什麽呢?犧牲你的六個敵人。當靈量被喚醒,你對所有這六個敵人便完全不會執著; 這全頼你的靈量是怎樣提升,如果它提升得很完美,我會看到人們是立即得到自覺──他們變成完全醒覺的人。當然這類人是小數,但這裏有一些。

當我見到你們大部分人只有很小問題,你們大多數的問題都是來自額輪。我們就是這樣消耗額輪──我們以「思維」作為對外在每事每物的反應,我們對外在的每樣事物都作出反應。我看到在這裏的燈,我可以有這樣的反應:「他們怎樣找到這些燈? 這些燈值多少錢?他們怎樣全年保存這些燈?」……所有類似的東西,我都可以作出反應。這些反應都是來自我們的思想制約或我們的自我(我執)

自我膨脹的人都極之敏感。如果你給予他們某些他們認為不尊重他們的東西,他們會感到受傷害。他們可以因為任何事物而感到受傷害,因為他們認為他們是特別的,比別人層次高。別人與他們相處時,言行要檢點。這就是為什麽當別人看不起他們時,他們會感到非常困擾。這是來自自我。自我是額輪活動的不可分割的一部分。另一個原因是你的社會制約。現在你有某些制約,如你是印度人──你的制約是當別人來見你時,他要觸摸你的腳──假若這是代表你和他的關係──若這人不觸摸你的腳,你便會生氣。所有有關這樣的事情都是來自你的思想制約,令你感到受辱,或感到別人不尊重你,令你感到不安。自我的另一種反應是這樣,如我上述所說的燈,我可以說﹕「為什麽我不也擁有一些燈?」或「如我有這些燈,我為什麽要給别人?」。自我就是這樣反應或制約就是這樣作出反應。

自我與制約將會消失,因為耶穌基督犧牲了祂的生命。耶穌是神聖的人,神聖的人就像海洋一樣,保持在零點,在最低點。祂就在這一點成就事情,祂可以製造雲,製造雨,當所有河流水漲時,它們都會流入大海,因為大海仍然保持在零點。

所以謙卑是霎哈嘉瑜伽士的其中一種特性,並不謙卑的人不能稱為霎哈嘉瑜伽士。我曾見過有些霎哈嘉瑜伽練習者也能很憤怒,他們有時也會叫喊、非常憤怒及行為失當,這就是他們不是霎哈嘉瑜伽士的徵兆,他們仍要變得成熟。

這種謙卑令你變得平靜,我可以說這是令你保持同一狀態而不會對外在的事物作出反應的原因,你不會作出反應。你看到每事每物──你反應,跟着你便不作反應,你只是靜觀,新的旁觀見証狀態就這樣出現,當你變成旁觀者,你只是靜觀,不會作出反應,不會想及它,你是處身現在──在這現在,你只靜觀,靜觀及享受一切。享受創造的一切並不能從你的思維中可以得到。當你不作思考時,創造的美麗就在你身上反映,給予你極大的喜樂及平和。

所以我們要學習不要作出反應,現今人類的問題是太懂得反應,反應是生活中的基本原則。看報紙、看書、與某人會面,我發覺他們都是反應的專家,他們都反應。對每事每物作出反應令他們不能成就事情最精華的部份,事情的精粹只能通過旁觀見証的狀態才能成就,這就是我們從耶穌基督被釘十字架中所能學習到的。從祂的出生──祂出生在很謙卑,很貧窮的家庭,生活條件很惡劣。所有這些都是向你們展示所有外在的環境,外在的榮耀都不能令你變得偉大──偉大是源自內在。當這偉大在內裏存在時,你是不會關心其他事物,因為你內裏已經滿足,其他事物不會騷擾你,你不會想及其他事物,你活在你的尊貴中。這就是我們從耶穌基督的一生中看到的,祂是很尊貴的人。否則當你遇見很可憐的人,例如他感覺到權力,他會以像乞丐一樣的態度與你說話。例如在很富裕家庭出生的人,他會以很炫耀的態度與你說話。但神性的人,所有這些都不會令他動容。對他來說,有錢沒錢,有地位沒有地位,全都是一樣,當這種情形發生,你可以認為你已變成霎哈嘉瑜伽士。

我曽經見過來到格納帕提普蕾的人,現在他們都很成熟,否則他們都會說 :「我們没有水,我們没有這些設施,這裏很冷,很熱……或其他。」他們常常提及這些,像他們在度假,這裏有很大分別,你要在這裏發展你的旁觀見証能力。你有沒有看到這天空,它是多麼美麗?橙色、藍色、各種各樣的顏色也在那裏。這顏色──自然的出現,享受着。它是不受任何影響而永遠存在,它會在黑暗中消失,只是看着,天空只靜靜的看着。任何事情發生,它都接受,所以它才這樣美麗,給予別人無限的喜樂。

所以當你處於靈性的狀態,你是令人喜樂,你是平和,你是很有愛心及愛每一個人。所有自我的問題都會消失。自我是你的最大敵人,它是唯一真正阻礙你生命中的財富及美麗,所以若你能看到這自我,看到它是怎様運作,你只是享受它。像一齣戲劇上演,「好吧?讓我們擁有它。」你會像看戲一樣,怱然很奇妙地發覺你並不身在其中,你只是看着它。當你從自我抽身而出,你會看到它是怎樣嘗試誘惑你。

這就是現今的問題,這就是為什麽我們這樣需要耶穌基督,現今的問題是人們並不知道他們變得自我之後,對他們自己,對別人及對全世界作出多大的傷害。如果你能知道,我告訴你,他們會放棄自我。問題是他們享受這些,他們享受這種自私或我可以說是非常低層次的生活。當你們都是霎哈嘉瑜伽練習者,你們要做的是要明白「為什麽這自我會在我腦海中出現?我做了些什麽?我又是誰?」當你發問這些問題,你的自我便會消失。

對我來說,處理有自我的人是很大的問題,因為我不能直接告訴他們 :「你有自我。」如果我這樣告訴他們,他們會跑掉。如果我告訴他們 :「你非常好,非常令人喜悅。」那麽他們的自我便會膨脹。他們會說 :「 啊!母親告訴我,我令人愉快。」 這是很有問題。我不知道怎樣處理人類的自我,我知道他們有這問題,但我不知道怎樣處理,我想只有你能處理,如果你能明白你的問題,這是解決你和我的問題的最佳途徑。

我要達成的目標對一世來說是太偉大了,我希望成就全宇宙得到自覺,我希望全世界人都得到自覺,這是非常卓越的要怎樣…… (台下鼓掌)

在霎哈嘉瑜伽文化中,我們有正統的訓練怎樣清除自我,你可以通過內省,你能看清你自己為何會作出這樣的言行,這內省只有霎哈嘉瑜伽士能做而不能別人代勞,因為只有他們自己可以進入自己內裏,以看清自己,他們可靜觀別人,他們可嘗試看看這「自我先生」在我腦海中正在做些什麽?當然我們知道背誦耶穌基督的口訣能清除所有自我的問題,有很大的幫助。當你唸誦口訣時,你必須以很謙虛的態度。「我是什麽,除此之外,我是誰?」看看天上很多的星星,看看身邊很多美麗的事物,我又是誰呢?我有什麽成就?為什麽我要這樣自我中心?為什麽我認為自己是很偉大?」

還有別人對你阿諛奉承,因為他們想在你身上得到好處,所以他們奉承你,他們會說 :「這是很偉大,你是很偉大。」他們完全迷惑你,令你迷失了方向。就像傾盆大雨沖走你,令你淹沒在充滿自我的人群的洪流中。你今天看看四周,在現今的世代,每一個人都意識到他們的自我,對自我很有意識,他們以怎樣的態度在報紙上出現,怎樣在雜誌上出現,我感到很驚奇。若我在那裏,會感到很羞恥,這全都是自我的表現──沒有其他。所有各種他們開展的事情,都是與自我競爭,很多的競爭,像他們很漂亮的競爭,跟着他們再與某先生競爭──你可以說是在印度,某東西先生……所有這些東西都助長這個人的自我,其他東西亦追逐這競爭。他們想:「為什麽我不…我應該像這樣」。

這些都令你麻木,並絶對蒙蔽你的思維,令你以為這樣就是「成功」。 但這成功能持續多久?它隨時都會消失,但在霎哈嘉瑜伽中成功是可以持續至永遠,及被每個人都記着。那些人有這種謙卑的性格會被一代一代的記著。我未曾見過任何一位被立鑄像的人是自我很大的。相反地,若某人常常批評別人,他是個很自我的人。現在這是沒可能。若某人有自我,我想沒有人會為他唱歌,或以他的名字為他立碑。

在內心深處,我們都喜歡謙卑的人,如果我們想別人喜歡我們,我們必須非常謙卑,不是做作,真正的謙卑,若我們明白「我們是什麽? 為什麽我們要這樣驕傲?為什麽我們要控制或找別人麻煩?」若你能明白,你對偉大的耶穌基督的降世作出正面的評價,他性格上有很多特質。對我們來說,他最好的特質是祂因犧牲祂的生命而令我們通過自我,這是最偉大的信息。因此,我們要明白只想及自己的人,是自我最大的人,我很驚奇在英國,英國人是極之自我,其他我見過的西方國家也一樣,他們都很自我,他們完全不謙虛。與印度人比較,他們是非常非常的自我。為什麽?因為他們都是跟隨耶穌基督。你可以想像!我們是不是這樣跟隨耶穌基督?自稱基督徒的人,自稱耶穌基督仰慕者的人,都應該在他們的言行中顯示這種謙卑、慈悲和愛心,但他們並不。

所以,特別從西方國家來的人,要嘗試學習霎哈嘉文化,在霎哈嘉文化中,我們怎樣說話,怎樣生活,怎樣與別人相處,都是與別不同。當你在生活中開展霎哈嘉文化,你會非常驚奇,別人也會很驚奇,你是怎樣能與別人融洽相處,你是怎能妥善照顧每事每物。成為霎哈嘉瑜伽士是在這世界中最理想的生活方式,這裏沒有自我,沒有思想制約,什麽也沒有,你是絶對在這些品質中解放出來。你會驚奇別人是這樣信任你,喜歡你。

我希望你們都有很快樂的聖誔節並能記着耶穌基督及祂的生命所帶給你們的信息。

願神祝福你們。
