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”
Today again we are back together and I bow to you all who are the seekers of truth. Yesterday it was the introduction of Sahaja Yoga in which I explained to you what is the truth. A gentleman yesterday raised three, four questions regarding Kundalini. As I told you that the knowledge of this Kundalini is the knowledge of the roots on which we sustain ourselves. The whole instrument is called as tree of life in the Bible. Actually Christ didn’t have sufficient time to explain many things because he was crucified so prematurely. We only know four years of his life where he spoke to people, where his disciples, whatever they could gather, have written in their own opinions. So now whatever I tell you about Kundalini, I say is the knowledge of the roots we know about the shoot. In the West specially we know about the shoot and nothing about the roots.

Please enjoy the following Sahaja Yoga talk, given by Shri Mataji Nirmala Devi on the 27 March 1981 in Sydney. In Sahaja Yoga it is important to use your heart when doing things, and it is certainly also true when expressing your generosity.
This is the trouble with human beings is, that they cannot bear anything. If you give them money, either they’ll become miserly or they become wayward. If you give them power either they become dictatorial or they become destroyers. I mean, you cannot give anything to human beings without realization. Anything they get extreme, they become mad. That’s one word you can explain. Now Krishna has said, “Yoga kshema mahatmyam.” He has said I give you yoga, that is union with God, Self-realization, and then I look after your kshema, and kshema means your well-being. This well-being is brought forth with this Laxshmi, with one hand that is giving, the another is the protection. This hand which gives, should not, the other hand should not know. It should be so done so gracefully, graciously.Continue reading“Give with your full heart”
Please enjoy the following Sahaja Yoga talk, in which Shri Mataji talks about the prinicple of the Nabhi chakra which has the quality of peacefulness, generosity and satisfaction. Through Sahaja Yoga meditation it is possible to establish these qualities within oneself.
Now this Gruhalaxshmi’s centre is on the left-hand side, and the another is Raja Laxshmi centre is on the right-hand side. Now this center gives us the power to rule over people and we become very, in extremes you see we can become very arrogant and we can become very very, sort of authoritative and we might, sort of end up with a funeral with ten thousand people behind us, all bought from market and put there behind you without any feelings, that’s all finished. With such a man finished they’ll say, oh thank God he died, he was a horrible terror for us. So, that kind of a life can come with Raja Laxshmi. But in the center is the Laxshmi. Laxshmi is the goddess, is the power within us, by which we balance, lead a very balanced life, by which we are satisfied. Now they have made a beautiful picture of this Laxshmi also one should understand this power is a lady, is a mother and she stands on a lotus. Now these are all symbols which suggest that, these symbols are carved out with such deep significance. She stands on a lotus. Means imagine, who can stand on a lotus? And she’s a very healthy woman, very healthy woman and she stands on a lotus. It means that, that she is never putting pressure on anyone.
Please enjoy the following Sahaja Yoga talk in which Shri Mataji talks about spiritual balance. Sahaja Yoga brings about a spontaneous state of balance and harmony in an individual. This talk occurred on the 27th March 1981.
If you don’t hear me this time please tell me. I am sorry for being late, for this lecture but, Dr. Warren had time to explain to you, about this experience. Sometimes it is easier to understand this from a person, who has achieved it, than to understand from a person who is talking from some tenth storey. That’s what my father told me, that if somebody’s born on the tenth storey, and the rest of them are on the first floor, if you start telling them from there they will first of all not listen, nor will they understand what you see. It’s not proper, that we should try to tell them something from a level, to a level, which is still there static, in their mind. So one has to, raise their, consciousness, two three storeys so they start seeing that there’s something beyond. But, in doing so, so many mistakes, have been, there, before, and some people have done it deliberately, some are misguided and some are doing it deliberately. Net result is just the same. Even if you give poison to someone by mistake, or in a misguided way, the result is the same. In the same way, whether you are misguided, or whether you do it deliberately, whatever is wrong has an effect on the kundalini.

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”
