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

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

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.

Shri Mataji’s Love

Shri Mataji, founder of Sahaja Yoga

The brain must be used to understand clearly what are the ideals of a Sahaja Yogi, what are the things that a Sahaja Yogi should do, how he should behave in life, what methods he should follow. And then he has to bring it to his heart, through the meditative processes, through surrendering. How I give you second birth you know very well. I conceive you in My Heart, otherwise I cannot do it. Because My Heart is so pure, it cleanses you. By compassion, My Love cleanses you and then I can take you out of My Sahasrara … And when that has happened, you become a new personality.
(Shri Mataji, Diwali Puja, 1983)

Let us establish within ourself, on a subtle level, the desire to be pure and to be cleansed out – all the barriers and unclean things that are within us – to desire to be great Sahaja Yogis, desire to be responsible Sahaja Yogis and desire to be surrendered to your Mother. It’s not difficult.

The last one is the easiest because … I don’t want anything from you, except that you accept My Love. Surrendering just means you open your heart to accept My Love. Give up this ego – that’s all – and it will work out. I’m sure it’s going to work out.
(Shri Mataji, Shri Mahakali Puja, 1982)

A certain amount of understanding should be there and you must feel My Love in your heart, that’s all. I don’t want to make anybody unhappy. Sahaja Yoga has come to make you extremely happy, joyous and peaceful
(Shri Mataji, 17 December 1988)
