Knowledge

(Butterfly)

(Butterfly)

Before we came to Mother’s side
We felt knowledge was the key
To unfolding all the mysteries
Of life to set us free.

Now we know that ego’s trap
Ensnares our wisdom, and yet
We still attempt to solve it all
By falling further into the net!

It is only through surrender
To the Great Intelligence
That we come to understand
The Divine, Authentic Sense.

God is Knowledge: God is Love.
The truth is there to see
As long as we acknowledge
That wondrous symmetry.

Diwali

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

Mahatma Gandhi

Mahatma Gandhi

India’s proposal to the World Health Organization (WHO) to establish the 2nd of October as World No Alcohol Day has support from all eleven South-East Asian countries, and has been accepted by the WHO assembly earlier this year, around May.  The day is also Gandhi’s birthday.

The proposal came on a day when all 193 WHO member countries signed a resolution to reduce alcohol-related harm. WHO will now spend the next two years developing a global alcohol strategy.

Member states also drew attention to the links between alcohol and domestic violence, the risks to pregnant women, and road safety. WHO estimates that alcohol is responsible for about 4% of deaths each year.

India, where the average age of alcohol consumption has fallen by nearly nine years over the past decade, is also in the process of formulating and launching the country’s first national policy against alcohol.

The recognition of the day will go to a final vote by the Assembly’s Executive Board in January 2009.

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.”

Shri Mataji, founder of Sahaja YogaThe joy of giving Realisation! It was to be found in abundant supply at the Mind, Body and Spirit Festival at Melbourne Exhibition Centre held over the election weekend in November 2007. Mother’s magnetic charm again won the hearts as seekers flocked in their droves to the Sahaja Yoga stall.

The flavour of the Festival was surprisingly mainstream, with many families and ordinary working folk making the pilgrimage. Beset from all sides by charmers, soothsayers and all manner of charlatans, seekers plotted a course through the maze of flashing lights and gimmicks. The Sahaja Yoga stall stood like a beacon emitting waves of Shri Mataji’s love to which so many souls were drawn.

At times the Sahaja Yogis could barely keep up, such was the interest created by the fascinating sight of our brothers and sisters raising Kundalini after Kundalini, with many people having to wait their turn for the Divine introduction to our sweet Mother.

There is no doubt the festival was a battleground. War was being waged on a subtle level for the hearts and souls of these seekers whose ranks have swelled tremendously in number. Yes, the negativity was also well-represented. The negativity, however, was no match for the heavenly radiance of Shri Mataji and Her soldiers of God.

Many thanks to all the Sahaja Yogis who gave their time and effort. All will testify to the awesome spiritual recharge received from giving hundreds of people their Realisation, some of whom have attended our subsequent public programmes. The joy bestowed upon every Sahaja Yogi from the beaming smiles and glowing faces of the newly realised was the rich dividend of acting as an instrument of Shri Mataji’s love.
