Please enjoy the following video in which Shri Mataji Nirmala Devi, founder of Sahaja Yoga, explains how we can connect with our true Self. This public program talk is dubbed into German and was held on the 19th July 1994 in Vienna, Austria.
I bow to all the seekers of truth. At the very outset, I have to say that truth is what it is. You cannot change it, you cannot transform it, and it cannot compromise with you. It is, it has been, it will be the same. Whatever I have to tell you tonight you need not accept it blindfolded. We have had already very big problems with these blind faiths. You should have an open mind like a scientist and treat this talk as a hypothesis. But if it is proved then you have to accept as honest people. Because it is for your benevolence, it is for the benevolence of your country, it is for the benevolence of the whole world. The truth is that you are not this body, this mind, these emotions, intelligence, ego or your conditionings, but you are the pure Spirit. We see beautiful flowers around us, it’s actually a miracle. But we take it for granted. If we ask a doctor, “Who runs our heart?” he will say, “The autonomous nervous system.” But who is this ‘auto’? This they cannot answer. And who does all this living work? Who brought forth our evolution? There is no answer.
The second truth is that there is a all-pervading power of Divine love. It is a subtle energy which does all this living work. Now, unless and until we evolve more than what we are today, it’s not possible with this human awareness to feel the existence of this all-pervading power. And if you have to have this ascent, then you have to just have pure desire for it. The pure desire is a desire from our mundane desire is very different. According to economics, wants are not satiable in general. Today we want to have a house, then a car, then a helicopter, goes on like that. But the pure desire of which you are not aware is this that you want to evolve and to feel this union with this all-pervading power. To feel this all-pervading power, to be in union with it is the yoga, spiritual yoga.
Sahaja means ‘born with you’. Is this right to get this union, this yoga. So, the time has come for all of us to use this right. So when this kundalini, this power, from the sacrum bone rises like a primule of a seed, it passes through six centers. Most of the global problems come from human beings, and most of the human problems come from their centers. By any chance, by any method if we could improve or nourish these centers, all our physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual problems will be solved. It’s a fact that through Sahaja Yoga many diseases have been cured. Cancer, also many incurable diseases have been cured. It’s your own power. It is waiting for this moment, is your mother, anxious to give you your second birth. So when you say you are born again you have to have powers with it. For example, in Sanskrit language we call a bird as dwijaha and a realized soul also dwijaha, meaning twice born. That means you are completely transformed – physically, mentally, emotionally, and spiritually.
