Mahayoga is beyond "flavors"

There are some Sahaja Yogis who believe that Sahaja Yoga is a Christian Sahaja Yog or a Hindu Sahaja Yog. Still that lingers on, that lingers on, that it is Christian Sahaja Yoga. For Christians it has to be Christian Sahaja Yoga; for Hindus it should be a Hindu Sahaja Yoga. For Muslims it is a Muslim Sahaja Yoga; it must relate to Islam, because they can't get out of their own conditioning, so it must relate to that, it must explain everything that is there. They can't get out of it, you see? It could be also a Catholic Sahaja Yoga or a Protestant Sahaja Yoga. Could be even deeper than that. Like that, you see, it goes on. So, you pull Sahaja Yoga into your own categories, into your own small little cups. But it's just the other way round. Sahaja Yoga is the ocean, is a universal thing, it is a MahaYoga. It is not meant for Christians, Hindus, Muslims; but it's meant for human beings as they were.

India and America: Seeking & Finding

​Man - The west has received from India a lot of gurus and each with seemingly a different path and its believed in the west that all the paths lead to God. Many many people believe that it doesn’t matter how you go but you are going to get there. Is that what India has to contribute to the west, to the seekers of America?

Shri Mataji - India has to give the knowledge of the roots, while the west has the knowledge of the tree. But those who are exported from here I wonder how many of them are really genuine or they know anything about the roots. So I just can’t say that those that are going there are the people who can deliver the knowledge which is not yet known to the west. Whatever is unknown is not divine. To understand logically the difference between India and the west is this : that India has still retained the fundamentals as the goal of life and the fundamental is that one should get self realization, that one should try to lead a life of balance of dharma. Because there is so much of knowledge of the roots in this country, people can become very hypocritical. They can be very dishonest and can misuse that knowledge to exploit the western people who are na├»ve about this knowledge. My idea of bringing some of the sahaja yogi’s from the west to India, in the villages of India, was to make them understand that comfort is not the goal of life. Because we have villagers who are realized souls who do not have any comforts - which are so important to the western people - but are very happy, satisfied and peaceful people and are extremely good yogi’s. But that does not mean that you give up your comforts and you become godly. It’s all a mental behaviour if you think that be negation you can become godly. Is not the way. But when you come to India you understand that this habit of seeking comfort must be given up. If you have any it’s alright, but let not the comfort sit on your head. Let your spirit rule and not the idea that you should be comfortable or affluent.That idea should not rule you.​​

What are vibrations?

Vibrations are the feeling of the all pervading Divine Power within yourself on your central nervous system. You can feel the Divine Power for the first time after Self Realization on your central nervous system ending up into your finger tips where the sympathetic centers are located. So you start feeling on your hand the universal language which is spoken by the hand, the different centers and thus you know a rapport is established between the spirit and yourself. Because when you ask a question about any fundamental problem, you either get a cool breeze blowing into your hands or you just stop it. Sometimes you might get some blisters also if the person is suffering from some sort of very great maladjust. You might get numbness if the person is on his way to death or could be very freezingly cold. So the hands start "speaking" as said by Mohammad Sahib that "Your hands will speak when the time of resurrection will come". This is the time of resurrection because kundalini resides in the sacrum which is the Aquarius. This is the age of the Aquarius. This is the age of the kundalini.

Can anybody get their realization?

Yes most of you can. I mean I would not say I can give realization to Hitler. That 'anybody' means even Hitler will stand before Me and say that ''I will shave my moustache now give me''. That’s too much for Me. You must see truthfully, honestly your own preconceived ideas about yourself, then God says, ''Alright go ahead, try your luck''. But if you think that you haven’t yet found out and that you have to see, then, if you’re humble about it it works out. It does, I think in the west all those that came to Me got Realization except for one who is not married, doesn’t believe in marriage, who doesn’t think that women are anyway good or something like that. But he will also get married and get his realization.

What is importance of receiving Self Realization?

Shri Mataji - In the evolutionary process, a  human being has come out of a small little unicellular animal called amoeba as they say, the science. What is the purpose of becoming a human being? The purpose of his becoming a human being is that he has to become the spirit. This vehicle of a human body,mind, is to express the spirit within. Self Realization is the epitome of our evolution so we all have to become Self Realized. Without Self, we are in darkness, we are not aware of the all pervading power which is doing all the living works, all kinds of living works which we cannot do. What we do is the dead work or the mental projections which recoils back upon ourselves. We must get to Self Realization, that's the goal of human ascent from amoeba to this stage.
