Establish your Self-realization

Please enjoy the following talk by Shri Mataji Nirmala Devi, founder of Sahaja Yoga meditation, in which she explains how to establish your Self-realization.

has already talked to you about the different centers that we have within ourselves, and you can see how beautifully they are placed and how gradually when the kundalini rises, how she enlightens the innermost core of the centers. There are three channels in the central channel, and the innermost channel is used by kundalini to pierce through for the first time. You can imagine kundalini to be made of many strands of energy tied together just like a rope, and as the chakras start opening more strands start getting awakened and they pierce through these six centers; but if a person after realization just thinks that he has got the realization, then he doesn’t have to bother about it, may lose it for the time being, for quite some time I should say, and he’ll have to work much harder to re-establish his Self-realization.

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”

This is the blossom time

Please enjoy the following Sahaja Yoga talk extract from a Public Program held in the Royal Albert Hall, London on the 5th July 1998.

I bow to all the seekers of truth.

These days there are people who are going all over the places to find out the truth, the enlightenment. And there are so many books available, so many people who talk about enlightenment. And this is only in this special age, which I call as “the blossom time.” is happening. If they are not seeking the truth, that means they are not yet evolved as this should have been. But this is a special time that we call as the “Last Judgement” and that time has come. In the Koran it’s called as Kiama and described very clearly what will happen at this time. All these have been indicated in all the books which are, I would say, mystical or we can call as religious – whatever you may call it – the mystic part of it. They’ve all indicated this time, this time by the end of this century, this should happen. And this has bewildered many people, they are going hither and thither, getting into problems.

Understanding the Kundalini

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.

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.

Self-realisation with Shri Mataji

If you have not already experienced the awakening of the kundalini, also called Self-realisation in Sahaja Yoga, then this is your opportunity to do so online.

So actually first thing that happens to you that your thought stops when the kundalini crosses Agnya and when you feel this cool breeze you absolutely get calmed down and relaxed. Yesterday was a great experience for people. I’m sure today also it will work out the same way. You have to do exactly as I tell you which is a very simple thing, you don’t have to do anything great, just take out your shoes because this Mother Earth helps us, just take out your shoes.

Just take out your shoes, sit comfortably, if you have anything tight on your body just remove it, but keep yourself comfortable. Put your hands on your laps, one thing is you have to be comfortable so that during the process you don’t feel any uncomfortable feeling, so please just put both the hands towards me first of all, just hands like this. Now you have to close your eyes. Please don’t open your eyes because if you open your eyes the kundalini won’t cross the Agnya Chakra, so please don’t open your eyes till I tell you. Is nothing is going to happen, there’s nothing to have any fear, everything is going to be all right, but I must warn some people have a habit of showing off and they start going into a funny contortions and that’s not needed at all, here. It is something that happens inside, antar yoga. Nothing happens outside, it happens inside so you be sensible and wise. Take your realization is the best thing you can do to yourself and to anybody else.
