A New Awareness

Shri Mataji

You have to find out that absolute without which we are in confusion.

That absolute is within you. That’s why Sahaja Yoga is a spontaneous thing, is a living thing. “Saha” means with, “ja” means born. It is born with you, as in a seed.  All the maps of the seed that it is going to manifest are built-in. In the same way within you, your spirit and your kundalini are all already existing there and they are just waiting for a chance to give you your Self-realisation.

Before telling you about the benefits of Self-realisation, I have to tell you that you must keep your minds open as you would for any science lecture or any other lecture. There’s no jugglery or there is no shopping, guru shopping in Sahaja Yoga. It is a happening; it’s an actualisation. It is within you. It’s a living force, like a flower becomes a fruit or an egg becomes a chick; you get your realisation and you become a different personality.

A new dimension of awareness grows into you and this new dimension of awareness is an actualisation; it’s not just a mere words or any kind of a brainwash. It is an actualisation within you which happens by which you start feeling the collective consciousness. You are a part and parcel of the whole; so many have said it. We also believe in it that we are the part and parcel of the whole, but so far in our awareness, in our central nervous system, we have not felt that. So this is actually should happen to you. In this we have to accept, whatever is nourishing for our growth, after realisation. Gradually you start accepting …

Shri Mataji’s Birthday


Shri Mataji’s 85th Birthday will be held at Easter time on Good Friday (21 March 2008) at Her birthplace, Chindwara, in Central India.

The picture shows the house in Chindawara in which Sri Mataji was born. The house has been purchased by Sahaja Yogis and is now being lovingly restored.

 Shri Mataji is very humble about Her birthday. In 1997 She said:

“I will be very happy to celebrate your birthday than to celebrate Mine. So, may God bless you.”

 Lori Wills, a Sahaja Yogi from Vancouver, Canada, had some special thoughts about Shri Mataji’s 85th birthday:

“Somehow I had the urge to check the calendar to see when Easter is this year. Can you imagine? Good Friday is March 21st!

Also, we had just learnt that Shri Mataji’s 85th birthday celebration and Puja will be held at Her birthplace in Chindwara, in Central India. That weekend will then be, according to Christian beliefs, Good Friday, symbolising the crucifixion of Jesus Christ, and Easter Sunday, symbolising His resurrection. So we will celebrate HER 85th birthday in HER birthplace on Easter weekend! Is this a Divine coincidence? The combination of these events will certainly make for global celebration at many levels.”

Buddha under the Banyan Treebuddhabanyantree.jpg

“Whatever is best happens to me.
So whatever happens to me, I know is the best,
is all for my good, is for the good of Sahaja Yoga…

When you’re desireless you are happy
because you are never disappointed,
you are never nervous…

So make the best of all disappointments.
If there is a disappointment, just smile at it
and know it is for your good to discover something new,
to find out something better.

But the conditioning is so strong.
That’s why I say, ‘Be in the collective.’

Our banyan tree is the collectivity.
We have to make ourselves subtler beings,
to be one with the collective
and that is very enjoyable, very beautiful.”

Shri Mataji, founder of Sahaja Yoga

Diwali lights

Diwali lights

The lights of your heart together make a greater light for the world to move in a proper direction.

It’s a day of great joy, and those who join in this, are spreading also great joy.

But the problems are there, as they say, but for us there is no problem because there is no darkness. We don’t see any darkness anywhere. We see lights, and lights, and lights.

Then what is the thing missing? Missing is our sincerity. We have to be very sincere with ourselves, because it is not just a borrowed love or borrowed joy, but it is from within the source. It’s flowing and flowing and flowing.

So that is to be awakened, and that love should flow, and our small petty things like jealousies and competitions and all those things which spoil us must be washed away. And it can be washed if your heart is full of love.

Today is a day of spreading that light of love, so that everybody feels enlightened and happy and forgets these petty problems.

I am happy that you have been able to get some hall. It’s all luck that we got it. People were so much worried about getting a hall. But it had just happened. So you should know also that our destiny is all also guided and looked after. You are already blessed people; there is no doubt about it. And we should not worry about small things and small matters. It will all work out very well, you will see, if you just leave it to your destiny, which is very high, very great – in this your own destiny you will go very far.

This is the Promise of Diwali to you all, that you will reach the highest and the noblest way of life. Every word I say will be there to prove what I say is there.

Whatever petty problems you have, they’ll all be washed off. All these are the messages from the Divine. You don’t have to worry about petty things, about money, about jobs. That’s not your job. Your destiny will work it out.

You have a promise that you’ll be looked after. I hope you believe in that promise and are joyous in the highest way. I bless you all from my heart, all of you, for a very happy and prosperous Diwali.

Shri Mataji, founder of Sahaja Yoga, Diwali 2003

Sahaja Yoga Philosophy



The philosophy of Sahaja Yoga is extremely simple. It is the simplest of all philosophies you can think of. It is a very simple philosophy. It is that once you get your Realisation you start feeling for the first time the all-pervading power and forget everything else. Once you get that feeling of the all-pervading power, only you know how to manoeuvre it, how to work it out and how to use it for your own growth. It is made easy. It has to be, as it is the most vital force that has to take place in the realm of spirituality….

The grace of God is so great that, once you get your Realisation, you become such a different person that everything drops out. You are really a transformed personality and so that one should know whatever is the past is finished now. It is no more there. The egg is finished. It is the bird. And whom to blame, whom to talk about that the bird is there? Now let the bird find its own wings and fly. Once you understand this simple thing of Sahaja Yoga – it is that we have to make everyone feel the all-pervading power of God to begin with. Unless and until they have felt it, we have not to accept them as realised souls. They have to feel it….

Understand that wisdom is higher than intellect and discretion is higher than debating. Take a very kind and compassionate attitude towards the rest of the people and then work it out that they should, somehow or other, feel this subtle force of God’s love.

Shri Mataji, 1983
