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.

Seeking Your Spirit

Shri Mataji

Shri Mataji

People have talked about Self-realization. So many people have talked about second birth. Everyone has said that you are to be born again. There are many people who go about saying, “I’m twice born,” self-certified. You can find all kinds of people in this world, who are knowing that something has to happen, some breakthrough has to take place, something we have to seek.

Imagine at the time of Christ there were not so many people who were seeking. Nobody could talk to the disciples also much. They were just ordinary fishermen, very simple people.

But today is the time when you find so many of seekers all over the world. Seeking what? What are you seeking? The seeking is of your Spirit.

Shri Mataji, 1982

Understanding Sahaja Yoga

Shri Mataji

Shri Mataji

First of all, it is the most important thing. You have a rapport with God Almighty. You are, in a way, in awe about God. There is awe – not, I would say, fear because fear is all dispelled. There is no more fear for you, but you have awe for God, that He is God Almighty. You won’t cheat people…. You won’t fight for power or for something that is material. All your attention will be towards the expansion of your awareness in the light of the spirit…

So now we have a new community, a new civilisation of people who are extremely honest with themselves, honest to each other. They are extremely righteous and good people. They are absolutely non-violent, absolutely law-abiding, very loving, affectionate, at the same time extremely constructive and, at the same time, very intelligent. They understand Sahaja Yoga. It is such a subtle subject. Sahaja Yoga is such a subtle subject because you know everybody has failed to make people understand anything about truth. It is an impossible situation.

But this was the trick: your spirit. Once your spirit is enlightened, it goes into your head without any difficulties, absolutely sahaj. You do not know how difficult is this subject of Sahaja Yoga. It is such a fulfilment for the desire of the Divine that your divinity is now expressing itself…

The whole cosmos seems to be integrated, woven and governed by the divine laws. This integration gives you a complete understanding of Sahaja Yoga, mentally, emotionally and spiritually… just through the light of the spirit you have seen the truth and you have understood it.

Shri Mataji, 1999

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

On Sunday 23 December 2007 Shri Mataji blessed the Sahaja Yoga International Health Centre (Vashi hospital) at Belapur with a short visit. She greeted members of the staff with a beautiful smile as She arrived in the courtyard, which was decorated with rangoli (artistic designs created on the ground out of coloured powder). In the hallway were flowers and more flowers to welcome our Holy Mother.

Shri Mataji wanted to go straight into the large meditation room. It was initially very hot and we sang a bhajan. She was offered something to drink and She looked at the ceiling and asked for the fans to be turned off. Then everyone was asked to go back a bit to give Shri Mataji some air.

She was asked if She would like to go upstairs to rest and Shri Mataji said, “No.” She instead looked at the room, asked if the Sahaja Yogis wanted vibrations and then asked everyone to put their hands out. Everyone in the room did and She did as well. Then Shri Mataji looked at the room with Her love and everybody felt amazing vibrations. Shri Mataji asked, “Do you feel cool vibrations on your palms?” and all the Sahaja Yogis answered, “Yes,” and raised their hands. Dr Sandeep Rai said to the people, “Say it louder if you felt them,” and the whole room said, “Yes.”

Shri Mataji asked what diseases the patient had and Dr Madhur Rai told Shri Mataji about all the various diseases which had been cured. Shri Mataji asked what treatment was given for cancer. She asked how many patients were there and Dr Madhur said about eighty-five to ninety.

Dr Sandeep spoke about a possible extension to the building. Then Shri Mataji asked from where the patients came and Dr Sandeep Rai turned and asked what countries the Sahaja Yogis came from and the people started calling out their countries – Ukraine, Finland, USA, Turkey, etc.

All the Sahaja Yoga doctors who work at the Health Centre were present for Shri Mataji and She praised all the people working there for their good work.

After some time, Shri Mataji left for Pune and we all felt that bubbling joy and peace, which Shri Mataji always blesses us with when we are in Her presence, as well as a tremendous gratitude to Her for coming to see us.

The staff, doctors and workers here did a wonderful job of making the Health Centre look so beautiful to welcome Shri Mataji and She was smiling so much.
