Shri Mataji Nirmala Devi

Shri Mataji Nirmala Devi

The Hoyts Cinema in Charlestown near Newcastle, Australia, opened its doors for a totally different cinema experience, and the people of nearby Lake Macquarie definitely took advantage. Over sixty seekers poured in to see ‘“Freedom and Liberation”, a film about Shri Mataji’s life.

Two musicians performed songs of serene joy before a short introductory talk. Not one person left and all but a couple stayed to receive their realisation.

The gentle voice of a Sahaja yogi took the audience through the affirmations of Self-realisation. Once again the silence was deep. At the conclusion the yogi summed up the experience beautifully with the comment, “The seed has been planted and now it is up to you to grow.”

This is the best part of Sahaja Yoga: there is no pressure ever. Although the greatest desire is to have as many people come to learn to meditate,  Sahaja yogis will never preach or try a hard sell, as  Shri Mataji’s words always ring true with people and the practical results of her meditation techniques speak loudly for themselves.

The following feedback from the Charlestown presentation proves this to be true!

Meditation great!

 I missed the film but the after-experience was beautiful. Very uplifting!

It was lovely. Thank you.

Interesting to hear about Sahaja Yoga meditation and I have enjoyed the experience for five weeks. It’s awakening and spiritually wonderful.

I appreciated that you let the film do the talking and minimised any “preaching”- a good approach for an introduction.

Very peaceful influence.

Very enlightening.

I really enjoyed the documentary. I had not heard of Nirmala Devi before and I enjoyed the whole experience. Thank you.

Thanks. The fact that it was free is a strong symbol of sincerity.

Very enlightening. Liked the meditation.

This Is the Truth

(Shri Mataji)

(Shri Mataji)

The Divine has nothing to gain from you.

Truth has nothing to gain from you.

Truth stands on its own glory, in its dignity

It doeasn’t need anything from you, does it?

What can you do to adorn it? What can you put on that?

What can you give to that? How can you add to that?

It’s only you who is adorned. It is only you who gain it.

If you get the truth, it is you who has been enlightened.

It is not the truth that is going to receive anything from you, is it?

If that is your idea, then you are sadly mistaken.

You cannot pay fror truth. Truth is there.

It is there. Reality is there. How can you pay for it?

You must know that you are seekers. You have to get it and establish it within yourselves.

This is the truth: that you are made as an instrument of God’s power

and now you will be connected to the mains by His powers only, by His divine love

and the power will start flowing through you.

You will be manifesting that power through your spirit and you will see for yourself and enjoy that.

Shri Mataji, 1981

Navaratri

Shri Durga, the Devi

Shri Durga, the Devi

In Sahaja Yoga, Navaratri is the most important puja [celebration]. Though we can say in modern Sahaja Yoga, Sahasrara Day is, because that’s how you started getting your Realisation. But if you go to the whole historical events of evolution you’ll find Navaratri is the one which has brought you to Sahasrara. Without the help of the Devi [Goddess] at different stages of your ascent, you could not have been in a position to receive your Realisation. So all the steps that you took in the past are today worshipped and are used for thanking the Devi for what She did to bring you down. So it’s like a thanksgiving. Without Her work nothing could have happened.

So when we read about the Devi, about Her incarnations, how She came on this earth to save Her bhaktas [devotees], people who are trying to ascend, to cross this Bhavasagara [Void], how She worked hard, how She fought the devils, how She fought, She killed the demons single-handed, She took upon Herself the responsibility of making the people cross the Bhavasagara. Guru gave you the strength, taught dharma [right conduct], but She’s the one who brought you out. Even those who were dharmic could not do it because of the demonic pressure. She’s the one who fought single-handed with Her powers of destruction. In Her love for you She fought. She brought you to this level. And then She took a milder form of incarnation. Even during the time of all the gurus She took the form of, as you know, Janaki, was the daughter of Janaka. Then Fatima was the daughter of Mohammed Sahib and Nanaki was the sister of Nanaka. In those forms, these Powers sustained and nourished the Guru Tattwa and later on or sometimes simultaneously they incarnated in milder forms to help human beings to rise.

So today is the day of thanksgiving. As Guru Puja is a day of thanksgiving to your Guru, the One who has counselled you, the One who has told you about the truth, the One who has taught you the truth and has given you Realisation. And the Devi Puja is a thanksgiving where single-handed, just like a very loving mother, under Her sari She’s protected you, fought for you, fought with every enemy that is around, every sort of problems that existed and ultimately brought into Sahasrara level and then gave you Realisation. It’s a real thanksgiving to the Mother. So we can say Navaratri’s like a Mother’s Day where you give thanksgiving to Her, which was just relentless, continuous working for Her children.

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
