Shri Mataji

Shri Mataji

… we think that if we love each other, if we love Mother, that is the end of everything. It’s not true, also, because you see, your love for Me is there, no doubt, and it should be intense, it should be deeper, but the deeper you go into that love, then you will be surprised how you receive a special quality of correcting the things that are wrong around you. Gradually that quality improves.

 For example, a Sahaja yogi goes to anybody’s house, that house must become auspicious. But such a Sahaja yogi must have a good heart. If the heart is not good, in the heart there is still anger, passion, lust, greed, then such a heart won’t affect. But a person who has purified himself, if he goes into any family, any household, any society, the whole change will take place. The circumstances will change. Things that do not work out will start working out immediately.

Like they said: “Mother, as soon as you sent from this Sunday, everything started working out, as far as the television is concerned and radio is concerned.” I didn’t do anything – in a way! But that should happen with you also.

Shri Mataji, 1987

Rabindranath Tagore

Rabindranath Tagore

Every day in the early morning this faithful dog
Sits quietly beside my chair
For as long as I do not acknowledge his presence
By the touch of my hand.
The moment he receives this small recognition,
Waves of happiness leap through his body.
In the inarticulate world
Only this creature
Has pierced through good and bad and seen
Complete man,
Has seen him for whom
Life may be joyfully given,
That object of a free outpouring of love,
Whose consciousness points the way
To the realm of infinite consciousness.
When I see that dumb heart
Revealing its own humility
Through total self-surrender,
I feel unequal to the worth
His simple perception has found in the nature of man.
The wistful anxiety in his mute gaze
Understands something he cannot explain:
It directs me to the true meaning of man in the universe.

 Rabindranath Tagore

A Dream of Shri Mataji

Shri Mataji, founder of Sahaja YogaThe following story is from a book of recollections of Sahaja yogis throughout the world of experiences they had while with Shri Mataji in India.

“This was around 1990. Shri Mataji was arriving in Mumbai one day and we were getting ready to go and welcome Her. My wife had had a dream the night before, of Shri Mataji sitting in our car. My wife advised me to clean our car in case Shri Mataji would need to use it. It was untidy and all kinds of marketing tools were on the rear seat. Knowing that Shri Mataji would not be invited to sit in such a car, given the protocol for showing Her respect and love, a good clean car was required, decorated with a nice cloth and some flowers. Because of this I felt She could not possibly choose my car, and off we drove to the airport.

However, like in my wife’s dream, it so happened that Shri Mataji’s daughter, Kalpana, was unable to come and welcome Her, and to my great astonishment somebody walked straight up to me and requested me to take Shri Mataji in my car. I did my best to adjust the back seat as fast as I could and made sure all the business stuff was put in the boot in a few seconds. Then Shri Mataji came and sat in the car.

“Ah, you have a nice car!” She declared, smiling.

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.
