Vishuddhi chakra – centre of collective consciousness

Please enjoy the following talk in which Shri Mataji Nirmala Devi, foundre of Sahaja Yoga,  explains about the Vishuddhi chakra, which is situated in the area of the throat.  By attending a Sahaja Yoga centre near you, you can fin dout more about this and other centres.

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. This is the finger (Shri Mataji shows both index fingers) which represents this center and he said, “Put these into your ears and say ‘Allah hu Akbar’ ” – you get in connection with the Virata.

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.

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”
