Divine love

Please enjoy the following Sahaja Yoga talk by Shri Mataji Nirmala Devi. It took place on the 5th July 1998 at the Royal Albert Hall in London.

So, what happens, how do we get thought? When we go to some place, we see something – immediately we react, that’s our habit. This can be also proved scientifically why we always react. Either we react towards it or we absorb it. So, all the time our mind is working – and it is a wobbly mind. You are all the time bothered with it and the modern times are the worst, though this is a special time, as I said, because this is the time when people think the most and this thinking goes on acting in such a way that they suffer from all kinds of diseases. Also sometimes this mind doesn’t tell you that this is wrong, that is wrong. You go on doing things you know, for example, Hitler, how he behaved, how he killed so many people, but he never realized he was doing something wrong, never. Ultimately, he killed himself because he was afraid that he’ll be caught, but not that he repented. So, they go on doing wrong things all the time without knowing that they are doing wrong things.

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.

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.

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”

Self-realisation with Shri Mataji

It’s beautiful. I mean these are the real seekers of what William Blake has described. So very happy. All right. So now we’ll have to have our Self-realization. First of all I have to tell you that all of you should have full confidence that you can get your Self-realization. Whatever may be your race, whatever may be your religion, whatever may, you might have done, whatever may be your age, anything, you all can get Self-realization. That is first confidence with it, it is very important. Not to doubt yourself. In no way please doubt yourself. You are all ready just to get your realization. But still there are, I must say, three conditions which are very simple if you understand.

The first one is that you are not to feel guilty at all. It’s a fashion to feel guilty sometimes, sometimes we feel guilty. This guilt business is of no use, I tell you. After all you are human beings, and human beings can only commit mistakes, you are not God. So what is there to feel guilty? Are you feeling guilty because you are a human being? But it’s very difficult for people not to feel guilty. It’s something so much built in; especially in the West I’ve seen people feel too much guilty. Not in India. I don’t think Indians know that style. There’s nothing to feel guilty, and those who tell you that you are a sinner, just think there is something wrong with them. Nobody has business to say that. At present you understand that none of you are guilty in the eyes of God. Take it from me. Believe me. So forget it and don’t feel guilty about anything whatsoever you have done. Let the kundalini decide. You don’t do it. But do you know that if you feel guilty then this center goes out of order? A very remarkable center this one is, on the left side. When it goes out of order what happens? You might get angina, you might get spondylitis, or your organs may become lethargic. Physically it has an effect. We always say in English language “pain in the neck”; see somebody must be knowing about it to say “pain in the neck”. You see this pain in the neck is nothing but feeling guilty. It’s all mental. Try to understand it’s all mental. So this is the first condition you have.

The second one is that you have to forgive everyone without even thinking about them, in general. This is another very difficult situation. But just see logically. Whether you forgive or don’t forgive what do you do, logically? Nothing. What do we do? We are just torturing ourselves. When we don’t forgive others we are just torturing ourselves. But the people who have troubled us are very happy, while we are playing into their hands and torturing ourselves. You’ll feel much lighter if you just in your heart you say, “I forgive everyone.” In general. Don’t think of them. Thinking itself is a headache.

Now the third one is also very simple as I’ve said. You should be very confident because you are a human being and on the whole you should be very pleasantly placed towards yourself. You shouldn’t condemn yourself. In no way you should try to say that how is it possible and everything will work out because it’s all built in. Now supposing you come in this hall and you have to put on the lights, you have to just switch on because it’s built in. But supposing outside only you start saying, it may not work, it will work, whatever. You just see if it works or not. Why not give it a full chance? So don’t doubt yourself. It is going to work out. This is very important, I must tell you, because we have learnt to doubt ourselves, doubt others. There’s nothing to doubt. You all have got this power within yourselves, and it will work, I am sure it will work.Continue reading“Self-realisation with Shri Mataji”
