The Ocean of Love

Shri Mataji

Shri Mataji

I’m talking about God, who is the ocean of love, who is the ocean of compassion, who is the ocean of forgiveness. But we do not even understand that ocean, how great it is, how beautifully it cleanses us, gives us a nice bath, beautifully wraps us into nice warmth and takes us to the realm of His kingdom. This is happening en masse now. It is happening in other countries. Especially in India, thousands of people have got Realisation in the villages. And it should happen to all of you here. But if you are not seeking, I cannot force. You can take the horse up to the river, put his mouth in the river, but the horse has to drink the water and enjoy the satisfaction.

Shri Mataji, 1982

Oh, Energy of Pure Love Divine,
The Love that means Forgiveness, Care and Grace,
We wish that in our hearts you always shine,
You are the highest blessing that a soul can embrace!

In the Ocean of Emptiness, which is so great
That even atoms stay apart, very far away,
The Cosmic Rays are searching for their fate,
And lonely Stars are sliding along their way.

The Galaxies move slowly in a caravan
Across the sleeping universal Face.
No, you are not empty, the Cosmic Ocean –
The Creator’s eyes pierce, with Love, your Space!

Oh, Energy of Pure Love Divine,
The Love that means Forgiveness, Grace and Care,
We wish that in our hearts you would always shine,
As constant thankfulness that our souls bear!

We wonder how to correct our ailing world,
Which is so hard to grasp and still so usual,
Without cruel idols and angry words,
But only with Love – the force most unusual.
And when we look in empty cosmic space
We feel this love that pours from above.
How could they say that Universe is full of emptiness?
It’s only full of All-Pervading Love.

She is the one that moves starry worlds above
And whirls the planets like little flakes of snow,
And those not deaf from within
Can hear the call of Love –
The force always victorious, wherever it goes.

Shri Mataji

Now what you have seen here … I would say is the knowledge of the roots. In the West we have grown outside like a tree, but in the East people had time to find out the roots. As Indians had to learn a lot about science I think it’s important that all of us should know also about the science of the roots. A scientific mind has to be an open mind; it should not be a closed mind, which does not want to see the other side of it. If a hypothesis is put before a scientist he works it out and if it is proved correct he accepts it as laws. So the hypothesis is first to be listened to; then if it is proved that it is absolutely correct then we have to accept that there is a science of the roots.

 This is not a new science in India. Fourteen thousand years back somebody called Markandeya wrote about it. But it was not available to every person. We can say that it was a secret science. And was only bestowed upon very, very few people at that time. As we can see, the Tree of Life has few flowers to become fruits in those days, but today is the Blossom Time, where people are trying to find out something beyond. They sometimes see the futility of their lives and want to know what is beyond – that is of permanent nature. So there is no harm in turning to our saints and great prophets and great incarnations, who have talked about this knowledge.

It is mentioned in all the scriptures that “You have to be born again.” But that does not mean that you just put a certificate on your head saying, “I’m born again.” Nor to form a club of saying, “We are born again.” When you are born again, means if you have jumped into new awareness, into new dimension of awareness, you should be able to feel the all-pervading Power of Divine all round you. Minimum of minimum that should happen to you, because your nerves get new dimension. And when you get your Self-realization or your second birth, you become entitled to an awareness by which you can find out the roots of everything. You can find out the roots why people get sick, you can find out why there are incurable diseases, you can find out why there are psychological problems, you can find out why there are moral crisises, you can find out why there are political problems, why there are economic problems. Because the tree has grown too big and has paid no attention to its roots…

 That point is very simple – the truth is: you are the Spirit. You are not this body, not this ego, nor these conditionings, nor Austrians, nor Indians, but you are the Spirit. Above all that you are a human being, you are the Spirit.

Shri Mataji, Vienna, Austria, 12 October 1987

The first new people’s seminars for some time were held at Burwood in Sydney on 20 April 2008, and were a wonderful success and our largest seminar held, with over 130 new people attending.

An introductory program was held in the main meditation room. During the morning sessions Sahaja Music was performed, mainly comprising Bhajans which was greatly appreciated. Having live music played on the day helps to communicate the joy that is such an integral part of Sahaja Yoga.

The initial session was an introductory program with a video talk by Shri Mataji and guided self-realisation. Following morning tea everyone was given a deeper introduction into the clearing process using mantras. Everyone was impressed to see the different clearing aspects of Sahaja Yoga presented. This was followed by a guided meditation. This led into a presentation by Dr Ramesh Monocha of some of the scientific research that has been conducted into Sahaja Yoga meditation, linking mental silence as the authentic meditative experience that should be pursued.

Following lunch there was a very good session about how to go deeper in our meditation, foot-soaking, and discussions of the reasons we are all embarking upon the path of meditation using the tools of vibratory awareness. People attending commented that they enjoyed learning about the different aspects of Sahaja Yoga which were presented.

Thanks to the Seminar Workshop team who worked tirelessly to organise a fantastic day for the seekers. Well done. 

What better way to end this report than to hear the feedback of the seekers themselves provided via feedback forms:

It was the most wonderful experience, which I had left behind due to some personal commitments. I feel great, rejuvenated and as a person. It is such a beautiful feeling to see all the yogis working with such dedication with beautiful smiles. Many thanks to all. (Bina)

In this age of commercialisation and business orientated activities, I am delighted to see such activities being done on a volunteer basis and no cost to the participants. This speaks a lot of the true intentions of the organisers, who are there to really the community. Keep it up! (Yan)

40 years ago, doctors and others tried to help my emotional problem and mental health problems. Told, ‘this guy can’t meditate’, I’ve tried ever since. Only now, with Sahaja Yoga I’ve succeeded, at 64 years of age. Thank you. (Mike)

Well run, lovely atmosphere and a beautiful place to be. Food was very tasty, just right amounts. Everyone was very friendly and helpful. I would like to attend any workshops on the affirmations and will be attending lunch meetings in the city, plus meetings in Paddington and western suburbs when possible. (Alan)

This workshop was extremely helpful and useful. I learnt a lot more about Sahaja Meditation and how to interpret the sensations on my fingers. Would love to know always about these workshops. You have my email. (Fay)

The experience was very informative and well rounded. I especially appreciated the medical talk. Thank you. (Deborah)

I enjoyed the day very much. I went away feeling very peaceful and better informed. I listen to the (Sahaja Yoga meditation) Radio program which is very important for those who can’t make it here. Thank you to all, much appreciated. (Suzanne)

The seminar about Sahaja’s scientific side was very useful! The last session of the day was an excellent explanation of the mantras. (Peter)

Well organised, full of smiling faces. Relaxed environment, teachers well prepared. Touch of love for my experiential life, energy all around. (Carlos)

Good meditation instruction. Scientific info most enlightening and useful. Will come again! (Ian)

Fantastic. Thanks! (Cassandra)

Prayer to the Almighty

Sahaja Yoga founder Shri Mataji
Shri Mataji

You must pray to God and ask what you want. Ask for:

“Complete satisfaction in my heart, Joy in my heart, Bliss in my heart; so that the whole world becomes blissful.”

“Give me Love, Love, that I could love the whole world and that the whole world becomes one in Love.”

“Give salvation to the entire humanity, which is suffering.”

“Take me to Your Feet.”

“Cleanse me with Thy Love”.

Now see if there’s God or not. You can feel it. Within yourself He hears you. He is the Glory of all the Glory. He loves you, He protects you, He guides you. He has created you to be really His Love. But accept it.
Any time any thought is coming to you – pray; and you will be moving in the way of the Ocean which is Unconscious mind, which starts with thoughtless awareness.

If you cannot become thoughtless, you pray to Him:

“Forgive me for what I’ve done, and forgive those who have done harm to me.”

Shri Mataji, founder of Sahaja Yoga, 1975
