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”
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”

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.

I was surprised that in a far-fetched place like Russia we have to always take a stadium, you can’t do it in this hall, you cannot manage, I think. How is it, in that country it is working? Because of communism, perhaps. They were so oppressed, that all the search started going inside. But just in such a short time, I was surprised, these people, how did they get it and how did they develop and they are still developing, all of them are developing. And only I am the person allowed in Russia now to go and preach – this is also another thing. This ignorance that we have, the problems we have – physical problems, mental problems – it will all be controlled.

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.

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.
