Become Like Lotuses

Lotus flower

Lotus flower

If the spirit has to evolve, we have to be extremely witnessing in a full way, very alert, extremely alert and witnessing ourselves, what we are doing. Then only will we reach the completion of our Realisation. Unless and until you reach the completion of your Realisation, you can never be masters of your attention and you can never be the enjoyer of your joy and you can never know the truth fully.

To achieve this Sat-Chit-Ananda swarupa [state of truth, bliss and awareness], you have to be extremely careful about the instrument that God has given you – this body, mind and emotions. You have to keep them in check because, wherever your habits are, they can never be joy-giving. It’s a joyless pursuit. And wherever your ego is, it’s a destructive effort…

 So as you are, in whatever conditions you are, in whatever situations you are, whatever may be the surroundings, like a dirty mire full of creatures and filth, you can become like lotuses. When you become like lotuses, all that is filth, all that is horrible can become fragrant. And this what we have to achieve.

When people will see the lotuses, they’ll come to you, not to see the worms and to see the filth, but to see the lotuses. So please, this time, correct yourself. You don’t need anybody to correct you. You just correct yourself, watch out for yourself and see for yourself. If something doesn’t work out, just give up. Don’t go to extremes for anything. You must learn to give up at a point and be happy about it.

If you are contained within yourself, if your hand is attached to your body, then you reach up to a point and then leave it. But if it is not attached, if it is disintegrated, then it goes all round and round and round and comes back without anything. That understanding has to be there in you people because you’re standing in the central path and you’re attached to the central path not only, but you are identified with it. So you cannot go too far to the left, cannot go to far to the right. If you do that, you get lost.

No Ego

Shri Mataji Nirmala Devi, founder of Sahaja Yoga

Shri Mataji Nirmala Devi

It was about 1991 or 1992, in Delhi.

I was travelling with Shri Mataji, founder of Sahaja Yoga, and I asked a question which had been in my mind.

“What is the thin line dividing self respect and ego?”

“A person who has self respect has no ego.” Mother replied.

G.K.D.

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. ”
