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.

Shri Mataji, founder of Sahaja Yoga

Shri Mataji, founder of Sahaja Yoga

Please enjoy this report on the Mind Body Spirit Festival held from 30 April  to 3 May 2009 at Darling Harbour, Sydney. A very popular Sahaja Yoga stall was  provided as part of the Festival.

Wow! What better way to celebrate Sahasrara Day than to gather 70 yogis at Darling Harbour, over a period of four days, to give Self-realisation to over 2,500 seekers.

Our [Sahaja Yoga] stand stood as a beacon of light in a sea of confusion, attracting seekers continuously throughout the festival, in a non-stop stream of humanity. The scene around our stall was reminiscent of the sort of crowd that one might encounter during Diwali in India, richly colourful and diverse, with a sense of wonderment and awe. For the Hindus Diwali is a very special time, for the Christians it’s Easter and for the yogis it’s Sahasrara Day, the day we celebrate Shri Mataji’s opening of the Sahasrara – the entrance to the Kingdom of Heaven.

Throughout the festival over four full days the seekers came, drawn to an energy that few understood, but which virtually all, with very few exceptions, felt deeply within. At times in rows three persons deep, they stood with arms outstretched and hands above their heads, as the yogis worked as instruments of the Divine, gently spreading Shri Mataji’s love over everchanging waves of humanity.

Seekers and yogis alike were all moved by the sheer beauty and the joy of the experience. Each had a story to tell, each an experience that would somehow change them forever.

When time allowed, seekers would sit on small stools and would be taken through affirmations and Self-realisation in the traditional manner.  At other times the pressures of the crowd necessitated a slightly less orthodox “group” approach. Typically this involved three or four seekers gathering around a yogi wearing Shri Mataji’s photograph. After first placing their hands towards the earth, and asking Mother Earth to take away the negativity, with hands outstretched and eyes closed the seekers would then ask from their hearts, “Almighty God, please give me Self-knowledge. Please give me the knowledge of my true nature.” The vibrations flowed, the seekers smiled, opened their eyes and their faces beamed with joy. Here are a few of the many, many wonderful experiences of some of the finest seekers you could ever meet.

A 74-year-old Scottish woman who felt vibrations immediately in both hands: “Oh, my God, I can feel it !” – as she then placed her hands above the hands and towards the body of the yogi giving her vibrations, “Oh, my Lord ! I can feel it in your hands, your arms! My God – your whole body ! God bless you, God bless you!”

A 13-year-old boy answering a yogini’s question concerning what he thought of his experience: “That was so coool! – the whole experience! I’ve never felt anything like that before.”

A 56-year-old European lady feeling pain in her left arm, receives vibrations to remove the pain: “My God ! You’re a Magic Man… what magic was that?”

A 60-year-old man who had attended Mother’s program at the Town Hall in 1991: “Shri Mataji said that if I didn’t want to have Self-realisation I could say no, so I did say no – I was afraid. But now I’ve changed. I was ready for this, and I thank you for this blessing. I feel wonderful!”

An Indian Sahaja yogini speaking about her experiences with the seekers: “This is just like giving realisation in India, it’s so easy; that’s why I keep coming back every day.”

All seekers who left the stall were provided with a small gift bag containing a list of venues for follow-up programs, an audio CD of Shri Mataji leading a guided meditation, and a brochure explaining Sahaja Yoga in a little more detail.

Sahaja Yoga Philosophy

Cygnet

Cygnet

The philosophy of Sahaja Yoga is extremely simple. It is the simplest of all philosophies you can think of. It is a very simple philosophy. It is that once you get your Realisation you start feeling for the first time the all-pervading power and forget everything else. Once you get that feeling of the all-pervading power, only you know how to manoeuvre it, how to work it out and how to use it for your own growth. It is made easy. It has to be, as it is the most vital force that has to take place in the realm of spirituality….

The grace of God is so great that, once you get your Realisation, you become such a different person that everything drops out. You are really a transformed personality and so that one should know whatever is the past is finished now. It is no more there. The egg is finished. It is the bird. And whom to blame, whom to talk about that the bird is there? Now let the bird find its own wings and fly. Once you understand this simple thing of Sahaja Yoga – it is that we have to make everyone feel the all-pervading power of God to begin with. Unless and until they have felt it, we have not to accept them as realised souls. They have to feel it….

Understand that wisdom is higher than intellect and discretion is higher than debating. Take a very kind and compassionate attitude towards the rest of the people and then work it out that they should, somehow or other, feel this subtle force of God’s love.

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
