You can become the prophets

Please enjoy the following Sahaja Yoga talk extract by Shri Mataji Nirmala Devi.  The talk took place in Birmingham, England on the 9th July 1982.

Actually I am just a catalyst, you can say. Just a candle which is enlightened. And this candle, when touches another candle which is ready, that gets enlightened. I mean you may give it a big scientific name, this, that, a charged personality, this, that, I don’t understand. It’s very simple for me. You are all ready for it. I just touch you and you get enlightened and you get the light and when you touch someone, that person also gets enlightened.

Now you may say, “Mother how can that be so simple?” I mean so many people say that “Mother you are too simple, how can that be?” I just don’t understand. What should I have, two horns or something to make it complicated? Everything that is living is the simplest thing. That’s the sign of living. Have you seen the flower? How simple it is to grow a flower. It just works. You just get some seeds, sow them, and you get the plants. How simple it is. Do we ever think how it works out. Looks very complicated. If you start thinking about it, you will go mad if you start analyzing it. But it’s so simple.

In the same way, this happening is also a very, very simple thing. It is called Sahaja. Sahaja has two meanings. Sahaja means simple, also it means the thing that is born with you. Sahaja is a simple thing because it is born with you. I mean your nose is born with you, all right, it’s a simple thing. You don’t have to do anything, press it or anyway do anything to it to breathe. It’s there, in the same way, this built in process is within you, it’s just there. To me it is absolutely simple and to you also it will be simple as soon as you get it.

So this argument about it being so simple, I just can’t understand, myself. Why should there be an argument? Supposing you can eat this way (Shri Mataji puts hand to mouth in normal way), why should ask that “how can it be so simple to eat this way?” It’s so simple because it is so vital. It is so important. All vital things are simple and easily available, like your own breathing. For that if you have to do something special, then this breathing is not possible. How many people are going to survive?Continue reading“You can become the prophets”

What happens after Self-realisation

Please enjoy the following talk in which Shri Mataji Nirmala Devi, founder of Sahaja Yoga, talks about the benefits of practising Sahaja Yoga.

It’s not something miraculous I think. If you see our evolution from what stage to what stage to what stage. Now at a human stage what do we have to achieve? Why are we human beings? What is the part we have to play? Because you are a spiritual personality. You have to become that spiritual personality. It’s not by reading books or doing all kinds of rituals that you will achieve it. Its just within yourself where the kundalini rises, passes through these various centers and gets you connected to the Divine power which is all pervading, which is everywhere. Then you can learn what is this, how it works, how it helps you, how it educates you, and how it gives you knowledge.

Your Spirit is to be achieved in this life

This is what my father told me, that you have to find out an en masse method, method by which you give realization to many people so that they see that there is something beyond. They are all standing on the first floor. If you are gone on the tenth floor and you tell them something that you see on the tenth floor, they’re not going to believe you, they will fight with you, they’ll quarrel with you, they’ll pull you down because their ego is challenged all the time. So best thing is to transform them, give them en masse realization. That is what is the Spirit is that every one of you have got Spirit, but it was very difficult in those days to give en masse realization, the blossom time had not come. Today the blossom time has come. And the wind that blows the cool wind gives realization to so many of them. Thousands of people have got realization, you also many of you have got your realization. So this Spirit is established, you feel you are something different now. The transformation has started, the baptism has been done in the actual sense. And you started feeling it’s moving, you feel the cool breeze. Now, when you take to your collective being, you become one with others also. You try to give. Now you are taking from me. When I go you stand here and give. When the the lamp is not enlightened, then, alright, try to enlighten it. After the enlightenment what does the light do, is to give the light. Spirit gives you your meaning. Continue reading“Your Spirit is to be achieved in this life”

The powers of a realised soul

Now what are the powers of a person who is born again? First of all, such a person is a tranquil, peaceful person; he becomes automatically righteous, automatically. I don’t have to tell you, “Don’t do this and don’t do that.” That’s finished now with Moses. No more of that. As soon as you become the Spirit, you just give up all those things that are destructive for us, automatically. No pressures are needed, no warning is needed, nothing of the kind, automatically, because the spirit is the light, you get your enlightenment. Supposing I am holding a snake in my hand, and it’s not light. Somebody tells me it’s a snake, I say, “No, it’s a rope, I am holding on to a rope.” But when there is a light I just drop it. In a simple way, nobody has to tell me, I see the light and it drops out. In the same way, you are an enlightened person. You can make out what is truth and what is untruth. For example, you see someone, even from Indian jails, some people who have just come out of jails, they don’t know what to do with themselves. So they walk out with saffron clothes to Germany, maybe to Australia also, and they become great babajis here. Now these great babajis sit on some of the important places in the city and everybody is surrounding them, giving them money, giving them their lives, you see, all big talk of love going on and everything. Is he a realized soul or not? How will you find out? You don’t know whether he’s a realized soul or not because you are not at an absolute point. You are still in a relative understanding. Because this person is wearing this kind of a dress, is sitting very quietly there, so he must be a babajii. You cannot recognize a person, whether a person is true or not. You can’t recognize me, either, whether I am telling you the truth or not. Unless and until you become that absolute being, you cannot make it out. Then what happens, that when the kundalini rises and pierces through your fontanel bone area, then you also start feeling on your fingertips – these fingertips are nothing but the sympathetic nervous system centers, which are indicating of the truth. If the person has got cool wind or cool breeze coming from that person, then he is a real one. If he doesn’t have, then he is not. There are many persons who claim to be great, but they are not – ultimately we find out and we are shocked the way they are. We don’t know, how is it our brain has failed, how is it our brilliance did not show clearly what was wrong with this gentleman? Because we are not that. We have to accept humbly that we are still at a human awareness and we have to be at a spiritual awareness. That’s the dimension we have to get, otherwise we cannot judge things properly.Continue reading“The powers of a realised soul”

What happens after Self-realisation

Please enjoy the following Sahaja Yoga talk in which Shri Mataji Nirmala Devi talks about the benefits of Sahaja Yoga.

I was surprised that in a far-fetched place like Russia we have to always take a stadium, you can’t do it in this hall, you cannot manage, I think. How is it, in that country it is working? Because of communism, perhaps. They were so oppressed, that all the search started going inside. But just in such a short time, I was surprised, these people, how did they get it and how did they develop and they are still developing, all of them are developing. And only I am the person allowed in Russia now to go and preach – this is also another thing. This ignorance that we have, the problems we have – physical problems, mental problems – it will all be controlled.

The knowledge of our Roots

I bow to all the seekers of truth. Just now, Albert has very clearly described to you the mechanism that is within us which works out our Self-realization. There is a mechanism, no doubt. When we are in this room we see so many lights and there is a mechanism behind this. But what we do is to just switch on and the lights are there. So the whole mechanism is already built within us through our evolutionary process. Now we have reached at a point when we have to achieve the result of the evolutionary process.

In the West, people had the quest to find out outside this body. I would say that they tried to find out the knowledge about the tree of life, but when the life is found out from outside you can go up to a point, and the tree can also grow up to a point. You have to go to your roots. This is the knowledge of our roots. Now to say that it comes from India or it comes from a particular region is not true. India being an ancient country, of course, they have been able to go deep into it, but even in the Bible you get sentences like, “I will appear before you like tongues of flames” and these centers really looks like tongues of flames. Then in the Koran also it is there called as [unclear] the Kundalini, and it is described that you have to be connected with God, otherwise whatever you do in the name of God you’ll become cruel and you will be disintegrated. It’s clearly said. Same thing in any religion that you read, that you have to have your Self-realization. Every religion has talked of the Spirit. Every religion has said that you must find out your Spirit. Now, when we are ignorant about the Spirit – and there are so many people in the market which I say as a ‘guru shopping’ going on – people don’t know what to expect and what to find. What is Self, what is Spirit, and why should we get it? As I said, it is the epitome of our evolution that you have to become the Spirit and that is the truth that you are the Spirit. If you are the Spirit, then you have to achieve that state, by this way or that way, that is your birthright – is born with you, that’s why we call it Sahaja Yoga. Sahaja means, Saha is ‘with’, ja is ‘born with you’. That is the yoga, the union with the Divine. The Divine is the all-pervading Power of God’s love, which is the subtle of subtler all pervading. It exists in everything and you have to feel it. That’s what we call as the cool breeze of the Holy Ghost: cool breeze of the Holy Ghost. In the Bible, there’s no description of Holy Ghost. This Kundalini is the reflection of that Holy Ghost. Holy Ghost is the desire of God, that’s the power of God reflected within us as Holy Ghost, as Kundalini, in three-and-a-half coils: is our pure desire. All other desires that we have are impure because we have been desiring for this and that, we know economic laws are such that in general wants are not satiable. Why? Because those wants are not pure. So this is the power of Kundalini, which resides in the triangular bone within yourself.Continue reading“The knowledge of our Roots”
