A Revolutionary New Awareness

So we have to awaken ourselves into that new awareness by which we can know the absolute truth and we can know that divine power which is surrounding us. All this compartments that we have made around ourselves will break and we'll see the dawn of a new era where we will know that all of us are capable of achieving that great height of awareness.

Sahaja Yoga and Thanksgiving

"But you are at a different level now. So it's more of a thanksgiving to your own kundalini and to Adi Shakti, glorifying that whatever has happened so miraculously is because of the kundalini which was within you, which was reflected by the Adi Shakti. But one has to know that only we are realized souls is not the point, only that we can feel the vibrations is not the point, that we can give realizations to other is also not the point. Then what is it? Very important – it’s the content within us. What do we have within us is the point. These are all the expressions of what we have within.

Supposing somebody is generous, then know that he’s a rich man, otherwise he cannot be. So the content within us we have to see. And when we start seeing the content, where do we find in the nature there is real content? We say the sea. Sea is there you see, full of water. So much of water it sucks in from everywhere and then it allows itself to be boiled by the sun and gives rain. But sea is the lowest level, stands at the lowest level and sucks in all the water from everywhere."

-- 1989 Navaratri Puja in England

One truth about ourselves

At the very outset, we have to know what we are seeking. We are seeking the truth. But what is the truth? The truth is that we are not this body, we are not these emotions, this intellect, this ego, these conditionings, but we are the Spirit, the Pure Spirit. This is one truth about ourselves.

Neeraja: Born of the Sea

"This Lakshmi was born or came out of the sea, the great sea, which was churned thousands and thousands of years back. And She came out of the sea because She is the daughter of the sea. That's why She's called as Neeraja. Neera means 'water' and ja means 'born out of.' This has happened thousands and thousand years back that She was born. So what is that? What is this Lakshmi? See symbolically, what is it expressing? It is expressing the awareness. Lakshmi expresses awareness, and She came out of the sea, you know that; the awareness first started growing in the sea. The life started existing in the sea, to begin with, and then it grew out. Without the life there is no awareness. First the life, because everything is jarda, everything is dead, and when it becomes life it means it has awareness. So the awareness started growing in the sea."

Power flows from Humility

"... see for yourself how many powers you have already got and the more you'll know, the more you'll become humble. It's very surprising, you'll become humble, no fear of any kind..." (quote from Navaratri Puja, 9 October 1994, Cabella. Italy)
