Love Is

Fort near Ganapatapule, India

Fort near Ganapatipule, India

Love will wash away all the darkness on the Chakras and Nadis and wipe the tears from all eyes
Love is the Salvation for it emits from the heart, the home of Shri Shiva and Shri Parvati
Love is the vehicle on which Sat Yuga arrives and it is the foundation of Sat Yuga
Love can and will resolve all adharmic behaviour and destructive tendencies
Love which permeates the entire Universe cannot be extinguished
Love wins because Love is God and God is Love
Love is Shri Mataji Nirmala Devi

THE DIVINE AVATAR

Raluca Grintescu

Shri Mataji Nirmala Devi, the founder of Sahaja Yoga (“spontaneous yoga”), recognised as one of the most prominent spiritual personalities of all times, celebrates her 85th anniversary.

In a world seeking for new solutions to the problems facing the humanity, trying to reach to deeper meanings of life, Shri Mataji Nirmala Devi, recognised as the “Messenger of peace” by Ayatollah Rouhani of the Shia Muslim community in Europe and as an “Avatar of the modern era” by Claes Nobel, reveals us a path to the realisation of a more balanced society, in which transformation and peace will first occur within each individual.

EVOLUTION OF CONSCIOUSNESS. Shri Mataji revealed the world the knowledge and practice of Sahaja Yoga (“spontaneous yoga”) since 1970. Sahaja Yoga meditation is based on the experience of Self Realisation, triggered in each human being through the awakening of the subtle divine energy called Kundalini. Self Realisation represents the final leap in the evolution of human consciousness, through which we acquire a new dimension, where the absolute truth can be perceived in our central nervous system.   As a result of this development of consciousness, the spiritual evolution takes place effortlessly, the individual regains their own sense of morality, the establishment of physical, mental and emotional balance leading to the integration of their being and personality. 

INCARNATION. For over 35 years Shri Mataji has been travelling tirelessly around the world. Beneath her quality of a Guru (spiritual master), Shri Mataji Nirmala Devi is being recognised by her disciples as an Avatar, an incarnation of Adi Shakti (The Great Goddess, the Creator of the Universe) or, in Christian terms, as an incarnation of the Holy Spirit – which explains, according to Sahaja Yogis, how the founder of this method can grant “Self Realisation”. Sahaja Yoga meditation and balancing techniques are also being taught as part of specialised programs, in various institutions, hospitals,  rehabilitation centres, as a treatment against alcohol and drug addiction.

BIOGRAPHY. Nirmala Salve Srivastava (known as Shri Mataji Nirmala Devi) was born in Chindawara (India) on March 21, 1923 to a Christian family. Her parents were direct descendants of the royal Shalivahana dynasty. Her father Prasad Rao Salve, a renowned scholar, master of 14 languages, translated the Koran in Marathi. He was a close associate of Mahatma Gandhi, the first Christian member of the Constituent Assembly of India and helped write free India’s first constitution. Her mother, Cornelia Salve, was the first woman in India to receive an Honors Degree in Mathematics.

Sierra Leone countryside

It is July 2008, just one year since finding Patrick Sheriff alive in Bo, Sierra Leone, after eighteen years of no contact. That was in itself an amazing event following the chance meeting with the Sierra Leonian lady in a shopping centre in Toowoomba, Australia, nine months earlier. So much has occurred during the past twelve months.
 
July 2007 quickly became October 2007and we found ourselves sitting at Shri Mataji’s feet discussing the possible Tour of Sierra Leone in March 2008. That promised date soon took place and we found ourselves landing at Lungi Airport on 7 March after many vexing pre-flight preparations. Patrick was on such a high as he met us at the airport. It was 21 years since he visited Shudy Camps in England and met other yogis and later on Shri Mataji. 

          

During the 4-week Sierra Leone tour, six Sahaja yogis flew in from other countries to support the daily activities. Every day the public found us at Aberdeen Beach waiting under the twin trees. Simply, people came and sat on the sand with hands out and gained the experience of Self-realisation without too many questions. Day after day this was happening from 8.00am onwards.

 

We made contact with the manager of ABC TV in Sierra Leone, and thanks to his good nature we had radio announcements telling about the beach programs across from the UN helicopter pad. Also he agreed to broadcast a DVD of Shri Mataji followed by a live interview on television. The public were able to call and ask questions live as we sat in the studio and replied on screen. This session happened at peak viewing time and lasted for one hour.
 
He advised us that the Ballanta Music Festival was happy to allow us space during their event. We found our way there and put up our poster. Soon people were sitting in the chairs provided and taking the opportunity that was offered. Suddenly, a lady came around the building and her face lit up. She was the Principal of the Ballanta Academy of Music. She was so pleased to meet us as she had gained Self-realisation nine years earlier in the USA and never imagined Sahaja Yoga would be in Freetown. Over the past two months she has been holding Sahaja Yoga weekly meetings in Freetown.
 
Once we were invited to a dance troupe and 120 people or more felt the Cool Breeze. Day by day, many more found us on the beach. Once we had some children sitting with us and we asked one if he would sing a song for us. Immediately he spoke up and recited the Koran for us for the next thirty minutes. Who are these souls? Shri Mother’s children!

 

One day we only had about a dozen people with us and a man was walking past along the edge of the water with a rectangular board under his arm. I motioned to him to come but he kept walking even though he had noticed. I motioned again and he turned towards us. He sat down and took Self-realisation and would not leave us. The next day he arrived with a partially finished sketch of Shri Mataji taken from the leaflets we supplied. Later he asked if could he do another sketch, somewhat larger this time. They were both very beautiful.

 

As April arrived we prepared to celebrate Patrick’s 75th birthday which we all enjoyed. A few days later we were to catch the ferry to go across to Lungi Airport, to leave for home. In the months since our departure from Sierra Leone regular phone and email contact has been going on. Six weeks ago it was decided to set up a Sahaja Yoga ashram in Freetown.

Shri Mataji, founder of Sahaja YogaThe following extract is from a talk given by the founder of Sahaja Yoga, Shri Mataji Nirmala Devi at Caxton Hall, London, in 1979.

I have known people who went so mad with the power of curing that they started visiting regularly the hospitals and they ended up in the hospital also. They would not even come to the programmes. They would not come and see Me. So this is one of the greatest hurdles of God, is the Vyadhi, is the bodily ailments. And the bodily ailments also should not keep you down too much. If you have some problem, forget it. Gradually you will improve. For some people it takes some time to get all right. But then the main thing is to get to your Spirit. So do not always say, “Mother, cure me, cure me, cure me.”

But just say, “Mother, keep me in the spiritual life.” You will be cured automatically.

It may take time with some people but you have been sick all your life. It does not matter if it takes a little more time, and also follow the methods, which we have told for the different diseases.
