Shri Mataji, Founder of Sahaja Yoga

So we come to the subtler side. And the subtler side of Sahaja Yoga is extremely simple. Is Compassion. Is Forgiveness. Is Love.

 But the greatest of all is the Service to God.

We are doing the work of God. How can we be tired?

The dynamic is flowing through us, that Compassion is so fulfilling, that love is so beautifying, that how can we not do it?

 We should run to do it.

 But you have to know that this love has a tremendous urge within itself.

Shri Mataji, 1984

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.

The Sign of Peace

                       Shri Matajiram_dassehra_05yp2_les_avants_871004.jpg

You should find, yourself, what’s wrong with you. But it’s not what’s wrong with you that is the problem. What’s right with you is the attitude. Whatever is right with you, put your foot on that. Establish yourself on that point and then develop yourself further. Peace is the keynote…

Try to assimilate within yourself. First grow yourself. That growth itself will tell others how one should be. Your own character, your own temperament, your own nature, your own behaviour – all this will tell others that this is a great man and they will try to follow your example.

Example is the best teaching. When the tree is small, even if it says, “I am great,” nobody is going to come and sit under a dwarf tree. But when it is a big tree, you can see the shade and everybody knows it’s a big tree and they can come and sit under that. You don’t have to tell. In the same way, when you grow you don’t have to certify that “I am great.” It just works.

Now the peace within expresses, first, as peace with others. That is the first sign of the manifestation of peace. Such a person doesn’t use harsh words, doesn’t use cruel words, but he is also not a person who is ineffective. He is very effective, using very sweet and nice words. Maybe he begins by using harsh words, then he mellows down and comes down to a position where he is effective as well as he is very mild and sweet. Such a personality has to be developed outside.

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
