"Your innocence itself is a power and your innocence will definitely give you that wisdom by which you can solve all the problems without any difficulty."

Shri Mataji Nirmala Devi – 26 August 1990, extract from Shri Ganesha Puja talk, Lanersbach, Austria.
"Sahaja Yoga is Meta science. Because it is conclusive. It gives you the exact results. It is absolutely verifiable. And that you become enlightened to verify it yourself. And you know all the modus operandi, means how to operate. You get all the knowledge about yourself. You have within yourself such a beautiful machinery. Now whatever I'm telling you, you have to accept it as a hypothesis and open your mind like a scientist and see for yourself if it is true. If it is true then you must accept as honest people. Because it gives you solutions for all problems. All problems, world problems are because of human beingshttp://www.coolspirit.info/collective-meditation. And all human problems are because of their subtle centers within themselves."

Shri Mataji Nirmala Devi - 13 August 1992, extract from public programme, Kiev, Ukraine.

What is the witness state?

"But witness state is not a mental state, it is a state of a spiritual ascent where you become a witness. Best way to practice witness state is not to criticize anyone, not to criticize. I've seen people who are all the time criticizing others. They cannot criticize themselves, so they start criticizing other. So much so that they don't even see what's wrong with them. They don't even see what wrong they have done to others, because they think they have a right to criticize others, and they enjoy this criticism very well. Actually there's nothing to be criticized. You just watch and see for yourself. That's all is your right. You have no right to criticize anyone or anything. But some people think if you do not criticize, then it will go on like this and it will never stop. It's not that! Once you watch the thing yourself, only just watch. Your attention itself is enlightened now, with that enlightened attention you can just watch and stop the nonsense that is there. But we are always conscious that we are something great, and we have to do this and we have to do that. Under these circumstances what happens is that you become another problem. Because what can you do? You can't do anything. But what you can do is to watch. By watching and by just seeing things as they are, you really develop a very different state of being."
