Blossom Times

I bow to all the seekers of truth.

Yesterday at the very outset, I told you that truth is what it is. If we have not found the truth we should be humble and honest about it, because truth is for our benevolence, for the benevolence of our city, of our society, of our country and of the whole universe.

This is a very special time you are all born, where people have to get their Self-realization. This is the Resurrection Time as described in the Bible, it's the time of Kiyama as described by Mohammed Sahib. This is a very special time when Nala, as you know, Nala damayanthi akhyan - Nala was faced with Kali. He got very angry with Kali and said that "You have destroyed my family, you have destroyed my peace, and you put people into bhram, into illusions, so I'd better kill you." He challenged Kali that "You should be finished forever."

Then Kali said, "All right, let me tell you my mahatmyam. Let me tell you why I should be there. If I convince you then you can stop killing me, but if I do not, you can kill me." So he told that "Today all those who are seeking the truth, seeking their Self-realization, Atma sakshatkara, those who are going into giri and kandharas, into the mountains and in the valleys, searching God all over the world; these people will be born as ordinary householders during Kali Yuga. There will be bhram, no doubt, people will be in sabhram. Illusion will be there, and the confusion will be there - that I will create, no doubt - but because of this confusion only, these simple householders will seek the truth. And that's why that is the time they will get their Atma sakshatkara."

It's a - lots of prophecies have been there in our shastras about these times, but specially Bhrigumuni in "Nadigranth" has described about these times. If you tally them with the timing of today, it is exactly this time. After the death of Raghwindra Swami this will happen, and that's what is happening now. For you people it is very important to understand that Raghwindra Swami was in this area and he did a lot of work, and now the time has come to complete his work; also Ramana Maharshi. They didn't know how to explain, so they took to maunavart. People like Gyaneshwara at the age of twenty-three, writing such wonderful things, like "Amruta anubhavi" is a book, I think the last word on spirituality. They had to get into samadhis at a such a young age of twenty-three years, because nobody tried to understand them. So much of ritualism, so much of conditioning, so much of reading that nobody wanted to know what they were talking. Everybody thought, "We know everything," and that's how this kind of a satisfaction that they had. Kabira has said, "Kaise samjhaun, sab jag andhaa" - "How am I to explain, the whole world is blind."

Embrace your Specialty

So now you have entered into the kingdom of God, you are now sitting in the court of God Almighty. Here, of course, as courtiers you have to dress up well, sit properly, take up your seats, you have to be systematic and above board because you are Sahaja Yogis. You are not ordinary people. You are special people. How many people in this world are going to be Sahaja Yogi? You are special people, so try to make yourself such beautiful instruments of Raja Lakshmi that people when they will see you they will vote for you and tomorrow you will rule the world. [Applause] I do not want you to get out of politics or get in politics but you have to first get the blessings of Raja Lakshmi and then only you should understand what's wrong with our country, what we have to do, what is the purpose, why do we want to become politicians, what we have to do, we have to have plans, what is your project, all these things now put your attention from yourself to outside."

God has created a beautiful world, I assure you

Today there are many new people I see again. It's so heartening to see new flowers coming up every day to become the fruits. It's so joy giving to know that I'm here at the right time when people are really seeking. They are really seeking to be transformed; they really believe that something has to happen to them. They are aware that there's something lacking in the whole human personality, in the human race, that we can not overcome the hurdles which look and appear absolutely absurd and illogical. So many problems we have -  individually, socially, politically, economically... appear very clearly, it is so evident to understand, that the human fiber is lacking in something; that it's the human beings who are responsible for this chaotic world, for all this modern confusion.

For God has created a beautiful world, I assure you. It's really a very beautiful world and He has created you also very beautifully. You all are very beautiful people, extremely beautiful. You cannot feel your beauty, then how can others feel your beauty? Because the light that shows your beauty is not there. You have fragrance, which is the fragrance of all the flowers put together. You are the essence of all the beauties of nature that is created, all the symphonies and all the music that you hear, all the art that you have created has come from you. That is your part, while you are the whole, you are the totality. But you do not feel your totality that's the problem: that human beings do not feel their totality. Out of you all this has come up. All this is your creation. But you cannot feel that if your hand has produced something, it's your hand. If your eyes have produced something, these are your eyes; that you are one, that in totality you will know the One who has created you. For example, supposing I do not have eyes, I may be able to see you partly, in the sense I can feel you, but I won't be able to see you fully. If I don't have nose, I won't be able to know how your fragrance is.

Most powerful saints, to date

First thing: we have to know that we are realized souls, and that you have got realization and that you are saints, that you have all the powers that a saint could have. No saint ever had more powers than you have, as it is, which is manifesting. No saint had any knowledge that you have today.

You'll be amazed, none of the books which have been written so far have been able to tell you about the spiritual being that is within you as you have come to know through Sahaja Yoga. One has to accept it. It is so. Anyone of them whosoever has written any books, even, I would say, Adi Shankaracharya, he could not explain so many things which you know. But the quality of Adi Shankaracharya is very great, or people of his type, Markandeya or Buddha, the quality is very high, because they are extremely pure people, purity. They have achieved individual salvation of a very high degree while you have achieved your collective salvation better, but individually they are of a very, very high quality. I mean, they had no doubts about Divine Power, they had no doubts about God. They never had any doubts and they were very dignified. And they never bothered as to their petty problems of life. For them this was too petty to think about. Anything which is so petty, we spend so much time over it. I know we had to do it because after all we are human beings and are being into Sahaja Yoga with our human awareness and then we got our realization so the purification time is very, very short. And while they had such a lot of time to purify themselves.

Now, for example, Moses was an incarnation, a very pure form of a personality or, you can say, Jesus was an incarnation, absolutely purest form of incarnation. But they are there to be our ideals while what we have done is to become, from human beings, a prophet. So you understand both the things very well, what the weaknesses human beings have, what are their problems, how they get away from reality, how they are deluded.​​
