So now the other center which we have here is very important center, called as the Vishuddhi chakra. This is the center vi-shuddha. One is shuddha means “pure” but vishuddha means “absolutely pure”. This has got sixteen petals as we have got the cervical plexus expressed in the gross which has also got sixteen sub plexuses. It tallies with medical science completely. Now this Vishuddhi chakra is bestowed upon by the deity of Shri Krishna. Shri Krishna is the one which is the evolution of the Vishnu tattwa from there upward to the state of Primordial Being. He’s the one who resides as the Primordial Being, as the whole, as Akbar. When Mohammed Sahib talked of Akbar he talked of Shri Krishna.

Establish the dignity of your children

Please enjoy the following Sahaja Yoga talk by Shri Mataji Nirmala Devi which took place on the 27th March 1981 in Sydney.

You must protect the people who are your subordinates, who are dependent on you, your children. Like, it’s a very common thing to insult your children from their childhood. “Why did you spoil that carpet? Why did you do that? You should not have said this, why did you?” This is a very wrong thing of discipline. Best discipline is to put dignity into children.Continue reading“Establish the dignity of your children”

Give with your full heart

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”

The fragrance of Laxshmi

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.

We have to be in balance

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.

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.
