Personality Cults & False Teachers: A Checklist

That’s first thing I’ll tell you. But I will tell you to ask yourself or ask anyone, “What has he done for anyone?” Has he been able to give you any power or anyone the power, all right? Now I can tell you all these who are here who are realized souls who are here, they are just like you to look at. Of course from face you can make out that they are very relaxed and very happy people. But they can cure people, they can give realization to people, they understand everything that is wrong with you and with themselves also. So what has he done to your awareness? Nothing.

Now, his disciples, what have they achieved? You ask them, “Where is the Kundalini of this person? What is the problem of this lady or what is weighing upon her mind?” They won’t be able to say. If you cannot even make out what’s wrong with another person or with yourself how are you going to help? All such people, what do they do? Let us see, simple thing is that they can mesmerize you. You may feel happy for a while, it’s just like drinking, you know, if you drink you feel happy. But by drinking what have you achieved? Have you become masters? All of them are like that, you see and this gentleman, so obviously, because he asked for Rolls Royce. What is a Rolls Royce for a prophet? I mean what does it matter? (Shri Mataji laughing) You see My point is? This so obvious, I mean this is so logically obvious. First of all anybody who takes money from you is a parasite, simple as that. And to ask for Rolls Royce – of all the things? So you see? You have got Christ, you can see from Christ’s life. Will He care for your Rolls Royces?

To such a person – He’s a king, He doesn’t bother. Whether he has a Rolls Royce or not, whether he sleeps on the ground or not, makes no difference. Such a person doesn’t care for anything. Because he is in comfort, he has got his own comfort. He is a man of self-respect. Do you think will He ask for anything whatsoever? I mean it’s so obvious, for you people it is so obvious. But when I talk to some people of this guru, the particular one you are telling me, they said, “Mother we give him the metal and he gives us the Spirit.” This – can there be an exchange? Can you purchase your Spirit? Use your logic, all right? God has given us brains to understand, logically we can reach there. Can you – can you purchase, can you purchase the Spirit? Isn’t it so simple? We can’t pay for it, My child. We cannot.

If you want to give Me a flower, all right. Is just an expression of your love, and that’s all. But you can’t purchase Me, you can’t. Your love can purchase Me, all right, that’s different. But you can’t purchase Me with metal and money, can you? What is a Rolls Royce? I mean, I don’t understand what are all these crowns and things. What are they good for? They don’t give you joy. Go and ask the people who wear the crowns.

Yes, the other day I was with Mrs Thatcher, poor thing, she was so miserable. (Laughter) Yes, she was, you know. I tried to sort of put her down, her vibrations, she was very miserable. We were just across the table talking to each other. And what I was doing was to balance her, poor thing, she was, she’s very upset. So you must understand you are too simple people, you are seekers of ancient times. You are not seekers of today; you are seekers of ancient times. And this time has been promised to you before also. And now you have to find it. Now, you must keep your logic straight forward. I mean, anybody who asks for Rolls Royce, I mean this is one of the stark examples I would say, cannot be any guru.

Is a stark [INDISTINCT: empow?], absolutely, one of those. But there are subtler ones, he’s not so subtle, you will get out of him, in no time, I know, all of you. But the subtler ones are even worse. Some of them may not even ask for money – may not. I don’t know of any but there may be some. Because I heard about someone who doesn’t now take money, in India. He had made money here and now he’s gone to India and he doesn’t take money from them. But the one who has really not taken money, one person whom I know, has been using women. He’s not interested in money part; he’s using money – women. You see, so this is what it is; you must understand. His interest is not in your Spirit, but in your purse and in your women? Imagine. How can holiness be combined with these dirty habits of people? That means they themselves are under the control of their desires, which are anti-God.

These are all anti-God activities. And you people being so simple-hearted, I tell you, you are so simple-hearted. If you tell an Indian that their guru takes a Rolls Royce he’ll say, “haa…” [Shri Mataji makes a dismissive gesture]. They immediately they will cancel. They know all this kind, how can it be? Nobody would give to him… any guru in India. Gurus have to pay people sometimes (Shri Mataji laughing), first to entice them. Westernized Indians is different, but those who are real Indians, they, they, you see they are, people live with the mothers and they know, “What is what,” you know, nobody can befool them, they are very practical people.

Suffering & Pain: Left Side Off Balances

This is the left side, which we get, and ultimately with this left side problems we get physical pains. It’s very painful to have left sided problems. It’s very, very painful. The pain cannot be explained, no one can understand, nobody can cure it, you can’t tell anyone and people think that you are fussing, they give you psychological treatments; you just don’t understand why this pain is within you. And this pain comes to you from left side, the subconscious. The beyond subconscious is the collective subconscious. And this collective subconscious is the one where whatever is created from the beginning up to today in the creation is within you. And once you go to the subconscious you just get lost there. You are so overpowered by this power of subconscious that it is beyond you to understand it, beyond you to get out of it and beyond you to, not to succumb to it. And it goes on increasing.

Like I asked some people: “Why did you go on doing it, when you knew that you were not doing it, somebody else was doing, still why did you continue to do it?”

They said, “Mother, we were under a blanket, it was darkness, we didn’t know where we were moving and we were just going on and on and on.”

And as I told you last time, feeling guilty is the biggest blockade, it’s the biggest blockade because once you start feeling guilty, that, this center on the left gets blocked and it’s very difficult. And you don’t know why you are feeling guilty. All the time you are feeling guilty but you don’t know why you are feeling guilty, why these ideas of guilt are coming to you, that this feeling of guilt keeps you away from joy, from enjoying anything, from being spontaneous. Why? And this explains why we sometimes are miserable for nothing at all. Actually God has not created us to be miserable. He has made us so beautifully, so carefully, He has created us with such love and compassion, not to make us feel miserable, not for anything. He doesn’t give us any diseases, no problems, but we have done these things to ourselves by going to extremes on the left or the right.

As I am today talking about only on the left, I would say that to feel miserable for nothing at all is also wrong, is being unjust to yourself. The people who are left sided must know that they are the Spirit, that they are that beauty which has to come, which has to express itself, that they are not the people who have to suffer all the time and to live like miserable people, they are not. But because they take so much upon themselves, bear so much upon themselves they become like that. And to avoid that bearing up they may take to some other habits, you see. Many people take to alcohol also for reason because they can’t bear the pangs of life, they can’t bear it. That’s why they take to it. But once the Spirit is awakened within you, you become so strong, you become so joyous, so spontaneous that all these things drop out. All those things, so called diseases, so called habits, just drop out. And you become a new blooming personality.

Now, the basics of having this center within you, you can blame God for that, “Why did He give us these centers on the left hand side? What was the need? He should not have given us these left sided ones so we would have been just in the center to go.” But the trouble is the human beings have to know in their own freedom how to deal with themselves. They have to learn little hard way the wisdom. They have to know: “By going to extremes we have suffered.” They have to realize it, because if they have to become truly, absolutely free, they have to rise in their wisdom. If they are not wise people then they cannot enter into the Kingdom of God because they’ll be abandoned people. Say people who are abandoned, who don’t understand any laws and regulations, if you get them in England, we have to put them in jail.

In the same way human beings who have not got that wisdom within themselves. Through sufferings only one learns; but we should not ask for suffering. When we ask for sufferings we are asking actually for mistakes, to begin with. How will you suffer if you do not commit mistakes? So when we ask for sufferings we are committing mistakes. So what we should ask for is nothing but our Spirit. And if you ask for your Spirit it is your own and you have to get it, it is in your own right that you are going to get it.

What is Self Realization? How to Achieve Totality?

Self realization means to bring your Spirit into your conscious mind....



So to understand the totality what should happen to us? We should achieve that state where we can see the totality. Like if I have to see now, for example, the whole of Brighton, what should I do? I should go on a plane and see it from that height; I can see the whole. In the same way in your awareness, in your understanding you should rise to that point from where you can see the whole. If you cannot see the whole, the partial vision or we can say, a little that you see can create confusion, can create problems, and some of them could be of a very, very serious nature. Because as human beings, we do not know what are we. This is the greatest problem of human beings that they say, “I don’t like it.” Now, which one is this “I”? Is that your Spirit or is that your ego? What is the part that is not liking it? Or is it your conditioning, because you were brought up in a particular way, so you don’t like this? Which part of you is not liking it? And you’ll be amazed that it is not your Spirit. Because if Spirit likes, how will you know? It’s only through your vibrations. When you can feel the vibrations, then only you will say, “Yes, my Spirit likes it, because the vibrations are emitted.”

So we are still in a transition state as human beings. We have not achieved that state which is called as the state of Self Realization, where you become the Spirit. The becoming is the point. When you become the Spirit you know what you like, you really know what you really like. Because you are now the reality, you are not any conditioning, you are no more a ego, but you are what you are really and that is your Spirit. And surprisingly this Spirit is a collective being. It’s no artificial collectivity within us, that also, “All right, we belong to all Brighton so we are one.” Or “We belong to one street so we are one.” It’s not like that, but it’s something that you are, absolutely you are a collective being and you start feeling that collectivity within you, with these different centers working it out. And you can feel it – others. You can feel the others on your fingertips, can you believe it? In the Bible it’s written that, “Your hands will speak.” The description of these days is that “your hands will speak”. Why not people go and find out what does it happen, how can your hands speak? This is what happens that on your fingertips you start feeling and understanding what is reality, what is beauty, what is joy, what is love

What is Self Realization?

Self realization means to bring your Spirit into your conscious mind.
- H. H. Shri Mataji May 20th 1982, Brighton, UK

The Three Channels Within Us

From: 1982 Advice to Yogis on the Left Side, Brighton, UK

Now, here in this map, as is shown, we have two powers, left and right powers. The left power is the power that gives us conditioning – left-sided, the subconscious, the collective subconscious – that gives us the conditioning. Now, if you try to deny all that, then the right side is even worse. It gives us action, but with action we can become very ego-oriented. So both ways it can be troublesome. Supposing you say that, “All right, I have no conditioning of any type, what’s wrong in doing this, what’s wrong in doing that?” And if you just move with that idea, with that freedom, it will be abandonment; it may not be freedom, because freedom must have wisdom behind it. So both the sides, the movements on both the sides are wrong. So what is all right, in the center, is not to get conditioned by anything and not to be ego-oriented. But “How to do it?” is the problem; the problem is “How to do it?” To be spontaneous is to be absolutely free.

Now, I would consider these two powers as say, a break and an accelerator in a car. Now you use both the powers, you use the break first, you use the accelerator; you try to control these two powers. But first of all it is difficult to understand how to use these powers. Gradually with practice, you use, you know how to drive the car, you become the good driver. After becoming the good driver, still you are not the master. But then you become the master. So today the master within us… within us, is the Spirit. But before Realization we are not the master, because the master has not come in our conscious mind, it is not expressing in our conscious mind, in the sense that we are not empowered… by its powers.

The Spirit exists, it has its own powers but we haven’t felt those powers within us. Once we feel the powers of the Spirit, we are empowered by our own powers, which are there. The powers are within us. These are our own powers, we don’t have to borrow from anyone, ask from anyone, they are in ourselves, the Spirit is within us, only thing that Spirit has to give light in our… in our consciousness. It has to come in our consciousness.

In simple medical terminology we can see, say, that the Spirit must manifest itself in our central nervous system, in our central nervous system, so that we should know what we are doing. Not that we start just jumping on the chair, or some people said, “Oh, you – we just start doing it.” It is hypnosis. It’s not correct, you are not in conscious mind, you are doing it out of hypnosis. Hypnosis may be coming from outside force. Is not your force, your awareness, your understanding, your power; it is somebody else’s, because you are not doing. As matter has a power to overpower us, in the same way there are some material things I should say which are very dangerous, which are placed.

Hermits and Recluses


Some people, I find, suddenly become morose, recluses in Sahaja Yoga. They will never be forgiven because God has given you so much. Supposing somebody gives you a diamond, you are proud, you put it on, and show off.                 


You are Emancipators


But the highest above everything is the hope of your Mother that you are going to emancipate the whole world. Give attention to that.  Think about it, that you are going to do it! You have to be walking, talking, moving forests of that Divine Love, that Ritambhara Pragya.                                                                                                                 V4.20.Mar84.p15

The Canvas of Our Being


It is your Attention that has to come up, and has to grow.  So, Attention is the whole canvas of your being.  Complete canvas.  How much you have gone into it, how much you have discovered it, how far you have raised it - is a different point.


Principle of Collective Growth


It is essential for you to understand that if anybody who is a Sahaja Yogi is in trouble, you are in trouble.  It is a threat to your growth, because it is the whole that is growing.                                                                                                                          V4.19 Jan.84.p17

We cannot be Hermits and Recluses

Now as Sahaja Yogis, you are powerful entities. You are very powerful people. We have got problems in the whole world. You know that very well. It’s not necessary (that) you have to be great intellectuals, or you have to be people who are some sort of politicians, or something. But you must be on the lookout for the problems, which are troubling this world. You have to. You cannot live in your own world, that you are a saint, “Now I am in Niranand,” that’s not possible. You can’t just be in Nirananda. You have to know that you have to live in this world. And you have to know all the problems of this world. And you have to think about them, not only your problems that, “Mother how will I be able to do this and how will I be able to do that?” But you have to worry about the whole world. You have to think, what’s happening in the world. What are the problems of the world? You are responsible for that.

Not only that, but you have to pray. In your prayers you have to say, “Mother solve this problem.” Collectively, individually, you have to take your attention from yourself, from your smaller life, to a much wider thing. Then you are a saint. And you have to think that it is your duty to ask for Divine help, that all these problems should be solved. This is your job for which you are selected. Your asking is your going to work out because as you know, I am desireless. You have to desire for it. Whatever you desire will work out. The protection, the affection, the compassion of Mother is with you. But you have to look after this world and show the concern that you have, not to live with very limited areas, and with very limited ways. ... Your problems extend to all the places wherever there is Sahaja Yoga. And you have to worry about all of them. ...

You have to stretch your attention outside, not inside, just worried about yourself, about your family, about your house, about your children. As soon as you spread your attention outside, your problems are solved in the house, in the smallest circumstance. You have to pay attention outside. ...

There are important things that are happening which you can see for yourself. You can scan it out, what are the world problems, and you can see for yourself where you have to put your attention. You should become aware of your personality, it’s not a personality that can be completely involved into a very small area. Your personality such should get involved into all the problems of the universe, all the problems there are. And you’ll be amazed that everything can work out in a very collective way. ...

So stretch out your vibrations. Stretch out your attentions. And you’ll be amazed that all other stupid problems that you have will be finished.

H.H.Shri Mataji Nirmala Devi, extract from Introspection and Meditation, Shudy Camps, UK, 18/6/88

Throat Chakra: Know the Whole as its Part


Most of us have bad Vishuddhis, because we do not take the responsibilities. One has to understand that the child is your responsibility, you have to look after the child (Collective Spirit), and the Whole is also your responsibility.

V4. 19 Jan.84.p17

Faith and Belief


Do you believe in yourself?  Perhaps that is missing.  Because the Self is not there.  If you know yourself you will believe in them [ed: Christ, Moses & other Spiritual Incarnations].                                                                               26. Mar85.p35

Valuing your Attention


PURIFY. Once you start purifying, whatever falls out, I look after that. This is just one assurance, but not a guarantee. If it deserves My attention, I will definitely look after it.  YOU HAVE TO VALUE YOUR ATTENTION AS I VALUE MINE.     


Wasting Time


If you want to waste your time, I will allow you to waste your time.  but if you want to have the ascent, fast, first of all one must remember that these relations, which are absolutely worldly, this is not your pure desire.                                               


The Mirage of Impure Desires


Your desire should be so intense that they should emit out the pure vibrations of Mahakali Shakti which is the pure desire of attaining the Spirit. That‚s the real desire.  All other desires are like a mirage.                                                                           Y3.V14.Mar.83

Pragyaloka: The Second Era

5th May 1984


Then in the second era, now, you will not desire so much that Mother should be there – you'll take it over from Me. This is the divine desire I'm telling you about, and you have to work on that from today onwards. I am with you, you know that; but need not be in this body, because I don’t know if I exist in this body or not. But once this desire starts working, you will see tremendous miracles happening. When the child is born to a mother, automatically she gets milk. So the nature is so connected with the whole thing. In your divine desire also it is connected. And it is very evident when you are a divine person.

So you may find Me anywhere: you are walking on the street, suddenly you might find Mataji walking with you. So this is the second era we have started, and you should not be shocked if you see Me sitting on your bed and putting My hand on your head. Or you may see Me in the form of Christ walking into your room, or as Shri Rama. That has to happen, so you should be prepared. Already so many miracles have taken place on you, but on a grosser level. We have seen the light coming on My head, and the photographs have shown some miracles to you. But many things will happen, that you will see something that you could never imagine. This has to happen, just to convince you that you have reached a certain height of your evolution in the new area of Pragyalok. Because this is a new state into which now you will be entering, on a horizontal basis.

Shri Mataji Nirmala Devi Obit

This is the obituary that was sent out today to British newspapers:

(more obits at the bottom)

On Wednesday, 23 February, Mrs Nirmala Srivastava, better known throughout
the world as Shri Mataji Nirmala Devi, the founder of Sahaja Yoga, passed
away at her home in Genoa, Italy.

She was born Nirmala Salve on 21 March 1923 in Chindwara, Maharashtra, India
to Prasad and Cornelia Salve, a Christian couple who were direct descendents
of the royal Shalivahana dynasty. Her mother was the first woman in India to
receive the Honours degree in Mathematics, while her father was a renowned
scholar who spoke 14 languages and translated the Koran into his native
Marathi. The family was closely associated with Mahatma Gandhi and lived in
Gandhi's ashram for several years. As a youth Nirmala played an active part
in Gandhi's freedom struggle and in 1942 joined the Quit India Movement,
which led to her arrest and imprisonment. Her father was later a member of
the Constituent Assembly of India and helped to write India's first
constitution. Her siblings all went on to hold important roles in public
life. Nirmala studied medicine and psychology at the Christian Medical
College in Ludhiana and the Balakram
Medical College in Lahore , and in
1947, shortly before independence, she married Chandrika Prasad (CP)
Srivastava, a high-ranking civil servant. The couple had two daughters,
Kalpana and Sadhana, and Mrs Srivastava spent the following years as a
housewife, raising her children and caring for her husband in his new role
as principal secretary to the then Prime Minister Lal Bahadur Shastri.

Her family were not only great scholars but also great supporters of the
arts, and of music in particular. In 1961, Mrs Srivastava launched the Youth
Society for Films to infuse national, social and moral values in young
people through the medium of cinema. She was also a member of the Indian
Film Censor Board
Throughout her life she continued to support the music and the arts, hosting
concerts with some of the greatest names in Indian classical music, as well
as building a music and arts academy in her father's name.

On 5 May 1970 a new chapter in Mrs Srivastava's life began. After seeing how
some unscrupulous men posed as gurus and preyed on often unsuspecting young
tourists visiting India in search of spiritual enlightenment, she went into
a state of profound meditation at Nargol, a beach in Gujarat that has now
been declared a protected eco-zone. During this meditation she said she
witnessed the rising of the Adi Kundalini, the primordial energy that
sustains the universe. Describing the experience she said, "I saw my
kundalini rising very fast like a telescope opening out and it was a
beautiful colour that you see when the iron is heated; a red rose colour,
but extremely cooling and soothing." In this state she realised that it was
her mission in life to share this spiritual awareness with humanity and that
it could be done by giving Self Realisation (enlightenment) to anyone who
desired it through a process of en-masse awakening of the kundalini. Shortly
after that experience, she returned to Bombay (Mumbai) where she began
practising the new technique she called sahaja yoga (spontaneous union) with
a handful of interested people and became known as Shri Mataji Nirmala Devi.

In 1972 Shri Mataji travelled to the US and publicly warned against the
proliferation of "gurus" coming from India whose main interest was in making
money without the ability to give enlightenment. In 1974, her husband, who
at the time was the chief executive of the Shipping Corporation of India,
was elected Secretary-General of the International Maritime Organization
(IMO), a United Nations agency based in London. He was re-elected to that
position a record four times and in 1990 was awarded the title of Honorary
Knight Commander of the Most Distinguished order of St Michael and St George
(KCMG) for his services to shipping. During her time in London, not only did
she play her part as a diplomatic wife, hosting functions for international
dignitaries, but also began her work of spreading Sahaja Yoga, starting out
with "seven hippies", as she called them. From these beginnings, through
free meetings held in small halls around London, the technique began to
spread and Shri Mataji started travelling throughout the UK, at her own
expense, holding lectures and imparting the experience of self realisation.

During the '80s, Sahaja Yoga grew exponentially as Shri Mataji travelled
extensively through Europe, Australia and America. She also toured
throughout India, where she was revered and worshipped as a living goddess,
from the smallest villages to the largest cities. Western practitioners were
invited to join her on these tours to experience India and its culture in
its purest form. At the beginning of the 90s she and her husband bought a
house in Cabella Ligure, in the Italian countryside. She continued to travel
the world, also visiting Russia and China, to spread her message of peace,
collective consciousness and enlightenment, aided by the growing number
yogis practicing her technique of awakening kundalini, which she described
as "one candle enlightening another". She filled venues as varied as
London's Royal Albert Hall and sports arenas in Russia and India. By the
turn of the century, numbers had grown from hundreds, to thousands, to tens
of thousands and her summer home in Italy became a place of pilgrimage. In
2004 she decided to curtail the touring and public lectures she had been
tirelessly giving without recompense for thirty years. As with all people,
age was starting to take its toll on her body. She withdrew from public life
to spend more time with her family and let the movement she had started grow
organically, but she was always there to offer guidance.

Over a forty-year period, her vision for a world of peaceful, enlightened
people has grown from a handful of devotees to an internationally recognised
movement, which led to her nomination for the Nobel Peace Price. She has
built hospitals, schools, music and art academies, shelters for abused women
and children, based around the practice of sahaja yoga, as well as the
all-important centres for meditation.

She will be remembered, by the thousands who personally met her, for her
wisdom, her laughter and great sense of humour, and her unfathomable
knowledge on almost any subject that could confound even the greatest
experts. Although she may not have lived to see her vision of world peace
fully realised, she never faltered from the quest. She was eloquent,
pragmatic and compassionate. Her forthrightness could court controversy, and
celebrity and riches did not sway her. Her concern was for the genuine
seekers of truth, and she would never turn them away. Her generosity, both
spiritually and materially, knew no bounds because, above all, she was a
mother who could not stop loving all her children in equal measure.

Shri Mataji is survived by her husband, her two daughters, four
grandchildren and great grandchildren. She will be laid to rest in her
beloved India.

Divine Economics, Divine Politics

The economics and politics of God have to be understood.  In his economics, generosity is the keynote.  He enjoys His generosity.  Material things are to express your generosity, isn’t it? The most enjoyable thing is to give, and when you will give you will your economic problems will be solved completely.  26. Mar85

Entering the Fourth Dimension


So this is the 4th dimension, is a great potential, becoming a kinetic force, like an egg becoming a bird.  So the egg, we can see the egg has no way of flying out, but a bird can.                                                                                                                    26.

Singularity of Desire

We should have only one intense desire within us, ourselves,  Have I become the Spirit? Have I achieved my ultimate?  Have I risen above the worldly desires?                                                                                                                                                      Y3.V14.Mar83.p6

Surrender is of the Heart

It is not the surrender of your mind through your mind, but the surrender of your heart. It is absolutely the surrender of your heart.                                         Y3.V14.Mar83.p9

Discriminate Between Your Tasks and Divine's Tasks

These are all My headaches, which you are putting on yourself.
YOU ONLY HAVE TO DO ONE THING, IS TO BECOME THE SPIRIT.  THAT’S ALL. IT IS SIMPLE THING; REST OF IT IS MY HEADACHE.                                               Y3.V14.Mar83.p7

Spiritual Benchmarking


Your outlook should be: how much have I contributed to this?  Am I still thinking of other people? Am I still thinking of petty small problems, or am I thinking of my Spirit?                                                                                                                                Y3.V14.Mar83.p8

The Fragrance of a Prophet


This assumption has to be established, that we are prophets.  If you could just assume what you are, what you have become, you’ll emit the Glory of God! Like a flower when it blossoms, it has its fragrance which flows automatically


Your Light Shines Through

When conditioning of heart is reduced, as if the glass of a lamp becomes clean, rays of ever-resplendent Spirit awaken Sahasrara sheath and the light of bliss spreads, which is felt in Sahasrara. This light enlightens all sides of Colourful Heart. -- Y3.V14.Mar83.p11

Be a Lighthouse


How can those Sahaja Yogis have enlightenment who are using Sahaja Yoga to solve their own petty problems?  And why should God give them enlightenment? Lighthouses do not show light to themselves even for a moment.               


What Surrender Means


Give up this ego, that’s all, and it will work out. I am trying to push Myself into your heart and I will definitely settle down there!                                                                                                Y3.V14.Mar83.p9

The First Principle of Enlightenment


You should understand a simple principle.  How can a big fire be lit with a small matchstick?  Will a wick hold the flame if the water is mixed with oil?


Be a fountain of joy


How much joy do we create?  How much joy do we give to others?   Very deep down within us lies that source of joy.  Go deep down, it’s there, enjoy it and then give it to others. Like a fountain of joy you should give.


Our only competitor


The quality of competition and jealousy should be brought round. There should be competition between yourself, the one who you were, and what you are.                                                                                                                                                                              V4.20.Mar84.p7

Glory of your personality


The sinner is dead, the egoistical is not there, the frightened one is gone for ever. You are a prophet. Rise in the Glory of that personality.                        


What is our protection?


All that attention has to become chastity, which is your power, which is your protection, which is your connection with the Divine.  Not forced chastity, but a chastity of balance and understanding.                                                    V4.20.Mar84.p6

The First Principle of Enlightenment

You should understand a simple principle.  How can a big fire be lit with a small matchstick?  Will a wick hold the flame if the water is mixed with oil?

What Surrender Means

Give up this ego, that’s all, and it will work out. I am trying to push Myself into your heart and I will definitely settle down there!

Be a Lighthouse

How can those Sahaja Yogis have enlightenment who are using Sahaja Yoga to solve their own petty problems? And why should God give them enlightenment? Lighthouses do not show light to themselves even for a moment.
