Shri Mataji’s Love

Shri Mataji, founder of Sahaja Yoga

The brain must be used to understand clearly what are the ideals of a Sahaja Yogi, what are the things that a Sahaja Yogi should do, how he should behave in life, what methods he should follow. And then he has to bring it to his heart, through the meditative processes, through surrendering. How I give you second birth you know very well. I conceive you in My Heart, otherwise I cannot do it. Because My Heart is so pure, it cleanses you. By compassion, My Love cleanses you and then I can take you out of My Sahasrara … And when that has happened, you become a new personality.
(Shri Mataji, Diwali Puja, 1983)

Let us establish within ourself, on a subtle level, the desire to be pure and to be cleansed out – all the barriers and unclean things that are within us – to desire to be great Sahaja Yogis, desire to be responsible Sahaja Yogis and desire to be surrendered to your Mother. It’s not difficult.

The last one is the easiest because … I don’t want anything from you, except that you accept My Love. Surrendering just means you open your heart to accept My Love. Give up this ego – that’s all – and it will work out. I’m sure it’s going to work out.
(Shri Mataji, Shri Mahakali Puja, 1982)

A certain amount of understanding should be there and you must feel My Love in your heart, that’s all. I don’t want to make anybody unhappy. Sahaja Yoga has come to make you extremely happy, joyous and peaceful
(Shri Mataji, 17 December 1988)

Blossoms
Blossoms

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

In the middle of Her Creation, She is sitting
To the Infinite, She is smiling
Her absolute Love endlessly flowing
Like a river overflowing

Little tiny drops filled with Purity
Are dancing, spreading around Her Totality
While angel-like clouds playing in the Firmament
Are tenderly gazing at that moment

Only desiring to be part of Her knowing
Simply dissolved and bowing
Where Sea and Sky meet
My forehead is touching Her Lotus Feet

Shri Mataji, Easter 1988Christ’s message of love and forgiveness is the same even today, preached by all – all the saints, all the incarnations, all the prophets. They all have said about love and forgiveness. If it was challenged or people felt that this won’t work out, they were asked to have faith in what was said.
Shri Mataji, 1996

If you love a person, you do forgive. You don’t feel bad. Not to forgive is dificult, but to forgive is the best. At least when you forgive, there is no headache for you.

So this love, which is joy … when this love melts and flows like a river and gives nourishment to all the surrounding trees on the shores, that is the time. It is the completion of the individuality or a personality of that love. And that’s the time it feels fulfilled. It’s not just that you have a light in the corner, but it has to flow, it has to move, it has to flourish. Love is not something dead like a stone. When it melts, it encompasses everything and everything becomes very beautiful with that.

So you have to first understand that life is for giving joy to others because you are now saints and your light has to give joy.
Shri Mataji, 1991

Second Tasmanian Seminar

Recently we held the second seminar for establishing yogis in Tasmania’s beautiful Golden Valley, on the side of Quamby Bluff. The vibrations of the Mother Earth and the hills were there to greet us, and once we had put up Shri Mataji’s beautiful photo, framed in a carved Indonesian frame, with a photo especially made to fit , the vibrations were as cool as cool in anticipation of the weekend to come.

One of the first to arrive was a car from Devonport with four ladies. Two of them came straight in and when they saw the altar, beams of joy radiated from them. One automatically placed her hands together and bowed to the photo. “She is so beautiful,” she said. “I’ve never done that before. I just felt that I had to.” What a start to a beautiful weekend!

There were fourteen of us altogether. They came laden with food – the Tasmanians are very generous people. Eight of them had been to the first seminar and were keen to renew friendships. All of them were always sitting ready for the eight different sessions that were held, and really enjoyed the strength of the vibrations.

We had arranged to do a Power Point presentation on the Mooladhara Chakra – yes, very techno! We had all the right cords and had practised beforehand, but could we get it to work? No! So we ad libbed, and yes, it was the most powerful session. They loved the knowledge that we have been given, and the meditation afterwards was beautiful.

Everyone enjoyed the bhajans and the mantras were sung with great sweetness. Everyone left saying how joyful they felt and asking when the next seminar would be, so we arranged it there and then: 24, 25 and 26 October 2009.

Depiction of the raising of the Kundalini

Depiction of the raising of the Kundalini in Sahaja Yoga

The raising of the Kundalini manifests a spontaneous power of tuning in. She grants integration and redemption, the Holy Ghost within. We indeed have walked through the secret passage to the other side of the screen of our existence. The potential unfolds, the mechanism is found, the divide between man and God is crossed. Because, in the last analaysis, the oldest love story is between Him and us. Lao Tzu spoke of ‘The Way’, Confucius of ‘The Path’, Shri Krishna, of yoga, Christ, of the second birth. When we can go more fully into the state of thoughtless awareness, or Nirvichara Samadhi, after some deepening practice of Sahaja meditation, we realize that the state of Being is accessible. The opening of the last chakra opens to us the bliss of pure freedom, without limitation of any kind. When we love, we know, and by manifesting the Kundalini, He gave us, through His compassion, the way of knowing. The oldest love story in the world is between God and His creation.
