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.

You are the spirit

Please enjoy the following Sahaja Yoga meditation talk in which Shri Mataji describes what happens after Self-realisation.

I bow to all the seekers of truth. Actually we are all seeking the truth. So many of us, but so far so many couldn’t find and they are lost. But what is the truth? What is the truth about yourself? The truth is that you are not this body, you are not these emotions but what are you? You are the spirit.

What is your purpose

Please enjoy the following Sahaja Yoga talk by Shri Mataji Nirmala Devi, which took place on the 5th July 1998 at the Royal Albert Hall in London.

I’ve seen people who know also Sanskrit very well. They are running here organizations, but they don’t know anything about kundalini, it’s very surprising. What do they read, I don’t know. And if you go to them, they’ll argue so much with you that you feel like running away from them. Only they know how to argue. No argument needed actually, it is there, within you, this power is. Do you argue with your stomach how to digest the food? And even if you do, will the stomach understand? It’s as stupid as that, to argue about something which is so spontaneous, which is a living process – it’s a living process of your evolution.

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”

Divine love

Please enjoy the following Sahaja Yoga talk by Shri Mataji Nirmala Devi. It took place on the 5th July 1998 at the Royal Albert Hall in London.

So, what happens, how do we get thought? When we go to some place, we see something – immediately we react, that’s our habit. This can be also proved scientifically why we always react. Either we react towards it or we absorb it. So, all the time our mind is working – and it is a wobbly mind. You are all the time bothered with it and the modern times are the worst, though this is a special time, as I said, because this is the time when people think the most and this thinking goes on acting in such a way that they suffer from all kinds of diseases. Also sometimes this mind doesn’t tell you that this is wrong, that is wrong. You go on doing things you know, for example, Hitler, how he behaved, how he killed so many people, but he never realized he was doing something wrong, never. Ultimately, he killed himself because he was afraid that he’ll be caught, but not that he repented. So, they go on doing wrong things all the time without knowing that they are doing wrong things.
