Shri Mataji

… we think that if we love each other, if we love Mother, that is the end of everything. It’s not true, also, because you see, your love for Me is there, no doubt, and it should be intense, it should be deeper, but the deeper you go into that love, then you will be surprised how you receive a special quality of correcting the things that are wrong around you. Gradually that quality improves.

 For example, a Sahaja yogi goes to anybody’s house, that house must become auspicious. But such a Sahaja yogi must have a good heart. If the heart is not good, in the heart there is still anger, passion, lust, greed, then such a heart won’t affect. But a person who has purified himself, if he goes into any family, any household, any society, the whole change will take place. The circumstances will change. Things that do not work out will start working out immediately.

Like they said: “Mother, as soon as you sent from this Sunday, everything started working out, as far as the television is concerned and radio is concerned.” I didn’t do anything – in a way! But that should happen with you also.

Shri Mataji, 1987

Theatre of Eternal Values production                                                                                                           William William Blake is recognised in Sahaja Yoga as a great realised soul. It is very fitting, then, that a very talented theatre group made up of Sahaja yogis was involved in developing and presenting a play about William Blake, to celebrate the 250th Anniversary of William Blake’s birth.

From November 20 to December 2, 2007, the international theatre company, Theatre of Eternal Values, performed William Blake’s Divine Humanity at the New Players Theatre in London, UK, in the very heart of the country where Blake took his birth – and a stone’s throw away from Fountain Court near the Strand where he spent the last years of his life.

The press wrote:

“With Blake’s beautiful words and the supple and constrained movements of the cast, the Theatre of Eternal Values enact a series of tableaux based on Blake’s etchings, as well as using his work to elaborate on the poet’s life. This piece is a loving and sophisticated work created to celebrate the 250th anniversary of Blake’s birth.”

“It was always going to be a theatrical challenge, as writer Tim Bruce says of attempting to do justice to the complexity of Blake’s works, and the Theatre of Eternal Values rose beautifully to it, presenting a wonderfully lyrical production of William Blake’s Divine Humanity.

“The beautiful voice and narration of The Bard set a quiet, centred, yet dramatic tone to the play, and gave it an unhurried meditative quality, in which Blake’s visionary message was brought alive. The performance drew the audience in from the beginning, and invited reflection on Blake as a mystic poet, and on how relevant his work still is, 250 years later. The fact that this play is being performed in the heart of London, the city in which Blake spent his life, and one that embodies many of the materialistic capitalist values Blake spoke out against through his work, makes it all the more relevant.”

This is the first time that Blake’s prophetic books have been performed on stage. Here the story of Jerusalem is set against the background of Blake’s masterly engravings from The Book of Job and interspersed with key moments in Blake’s life, incorporating original music and contemporary dance.

The play has evolved over one and a half years in a series of collective workshops in Cabella (Italy), London (UK), Vienna (Austria) and Everbeek (Belgium) and is the culmination of the creative talents of many people from twelve countries: Austria, Belgium, Canada, Denmark, Finland, France, Germany, Holland, India, Italy, Spain, UK.

It will be possible to see a live performance of William Blake’s Divine Humanity in various countries in 2008 or to purchase a DVD (estimated release date: May 2008).

Knowing Yourself

Shri Mataji, founder of Sahaja Yoga

Shri Mataji, founder of Sahaja Yoga

When you know yourself you are surprised that the greatest thing for you is to love and to be loved. You enjoy that collective love so much you absolutely overcome your baser self….

We human beings, so-called, are very selfish, self-centred and only worried about ourselves. That is what is said, but it’s surprising that with Self-realisation, with self-knowledge, with knowing yourself, you understand how rich you are within, how great you are within and how capable you are. This understanding comes to you and then that is expressed in such a beautiful manner….

When you know yourself, when you know what is reality and what is absolute truth, you just get dissolved into that knowledge. Of course, you are not knowledgeable in the way people are. You are knowledgeable in the real sense of the word because you realise what is within you is a big power of love. There’s a big power of understanding, a big power of oneness of the collective.

This collectivity works wonders and gives such joy that we are all one, we have no enemies, we have no problems. We are all one together. This joy was expressed by you is like the waves that go to the shores, touch the shores and come back, creating beautiful patterns. And I see that happening now, that these beautiful patterns are showing in your own life, in your lifestyle, in your behaviour….

There can be a diamond, very expensive, but it doesn’t know its value. There could be some dog or some animal which must be something par excellence, but he doesn’t know what he is. The same thing happens with human beings until they get their Self-realisation. And after realisation, they suddenly become aware of what they are and then suddenly they become very humble. They become very loving….

All this is because we have an innate value system, because we have inborn within us a great sense of love and compassion. This compassion has to be really understood and enjoyed and jump in the ocean of compassion – so beautiful. And you’ll be amazed that automatically you’ll swim, automatically you’ll meet other people also in the same ocean and – without any problems, without any troubles – all enjoying the bliss of this love, this compassion, this divine love.

Shri Mataji, 2000

Sahaja Yogi at AlandiThe following story is about a Sahaja Yoga program that was held recently at Alandi, in Maharashtra State, India. Alandi is the place on the Indrayani River where Saint Gyaneshwar took his Samadhi. The account was written by Arno from Pune in Maharashtra. The photograph shows a Sahaja yogi visiting Alandi.

“Shri Mataji has told us Sahaja Yogis that Saint Gyaneshwar (1275-1296) was the incarnation of Lord Kartikeyya. He was – after obtaining permission from his elder brother and guru, Nivrittinath – the first one who openly spoke about the Kundalini. He was born, like so many great saints, in Maharashtra and spoke about God in the local language, Marathi, not in the Sanskrit used by the priest caste. In the 6th chapter of his treatise, Bhavarthadeepika (commonly known as the Gyaneshwari or Jnaneshwari) he described the Kundalini in all details. Therefore, the Brahmins forbade everybody except themselves to read this chapter.

“At the age of 23 Sant Gyaneshwar took his Samadhi, which means he left his physical body and merged into God Almighty. This happened in the year 1296 at Alandi, about15 km from Pune, where yesterday, 25th February 2008, a Sahaja Yoga Program was held.

“A couple of days before the program, permission and Blessings were taken from Shri Adi Shakti Mataji in Prathisthan. Shri Mataji gave Her full Blessings. The program took place in a school about 500 m from the place on the banks of a river where Gyaneshwar took his Samadhi. The program was attended by about 700 people: simple people, dressed in cotton kurtas and saris, many of the men wearing the typical white “Gandhi cap”, also many children.

“After an introduction by a Sahaja Yogi uncle and several bhajans sung by the Pune Bhajan group, an excerpt from Ramayana, a television series by Ramanand Sagar, was shown. This excerpt is used in Sahaja Yoga programs all over India and shows Luv and Kush receiving their Kundalini Awakening from their Guru, Valmiki Rishi. So, it shows to ordinary people that Kundalini Awakening is very much based on their own tradition and religious and cultural heritage.

“As Alandi, due to tourism, commercialism, ritualism, Brahmanism and a lot of other isms, has normally heavy vibrations, it took some time for the vibrations to clear out. Then a Marathi speech of Shri Mataji was projected onto two big video screens, followed by step-by-step-realization given by Shri Mataji! The vibrations were becoming tremendous and lots of vibrations were also coming from Mother Earth. The program was a full success and also a clearing for the entire area. It was amazing to see how much the eyes of all the people who had just received their realisation were shining. ”

Shri Mataji

Shri Mataji

Everything that you are doing is for God and that is why you are doing it for your Self.

So introspection is very important. Criticising others should be less and criticising yourself and laughing at yourself is the best.

I laugh at myself many a times and say many things like that, if you have noticed. That makes life so interesting. That will kill your ego.

“How I am trying to assert myself and where is the meekness that Christ has talked about?” It is a natural goodness within us. Once it shines and shows, you become so beautiful, so loveable.

Whether you are sitting here near me or there, I know who is that kind. My heart just opens for such a personality. I know who they are. But even if I know, I will never tell you. It is better that you know yourself.

Shri Mataji
