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.

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.

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”

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.

The kundalini knows everything about you

Please enjoy the following Sahaja Yoga talk by HH Shri Mataji Nirmala Devi about kundalini awakening.

 

So, I have to make a request to you. Today, of course, I’ll try to give you Self-realisation, if possible, it works out. But you must respect, you must respect and you must grow. All the saints have talked about it in India.

Now, we have here lots of people from, say, Punjab, the Sikhs are there. And all these books have been described for Sahaj. He himself, Guru Nanaka said “Sahaja samadhi laago”. He has used this word, all of them have used this word. But Indians who are here, I don’t know, they are… they say “We cannot digest Sahaja Yoga.” They can only digest pounds, I think. Very surprising. It’s very surprising how this materialism has come over. But does it give happiness to anyone? Does it give joy, does it give friendship? Full of jealousy, competition – all nonsense is going on. You overcome all that just like this, you enjoy, everything. If somebody has a good furniture, all right, this is a very nice carpet, all right, so what you do, you look at it, you enjoy. You enjoy whatever is created beautiful. You don’t think about it, you don’t react. The reaction is that there’s joy. What a beauty it is! You don’t think who has made it, how much it will cost, nothing. You become thoughtless. And thoughtless awareness is nothing but such a pouring sense of joy. Joy which is neither happiness or unhappiness, but singular. You cannot describe it in words but you can really feel it inside yourself, that joy of being the Self. And that’s the time has come for you to get it. You are also here for that and this is the special time when it is going to work out.

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”
