What is Death for a Yogi Meditator? What happens to Chakras when we Die? Kahlil Gibran about the Secret of Death with Mozart’s Lacrimosa

Death ?! A Myth

“You are not to be disappointed my child. The Reality is so beautiful. It is just lying ahead of us. Don’t be worried. Everything is going to be alright…
Death does not exist. There is nothing like death. We are made of five cocoons. One of them is the cocoon of food called as Annamaikosh. That only drops out, and also a little bit of water within us also drops out. The rest of it remains.
Nothing! I wish you could die like that it is just changing of clothes you know. Like when I came from Birmingham I just changed my clothes in the hotel, and came here to be refreshed, to be new.
Just like that as our clothes become dirty we change them, or become old we just change it – that’s all.

Death does not exist. It’s a myth.”

Shri Mataji Nirmala Devi – Lecture on “What are we inside, Birmingham, UK, August 9th, 1980

What happens when we Die?! How Chakras come into Human Beings?!

“The first question was: how the chakras come into human beings , what time, what stage of life , because that should be the first question.

This question is something like if you ask : what time a primula comes into the being of a seed?! Something like that.

That a human being when he dies , as I’ve told you before he does not die fully. Only a part of him dies which is mostly the earth element and the rest of the elements remain there. The rest of the body disappears and we can’t see it because it is not a complete human form. It goes on decreasing in size and the Kundalini leaves the body and stays outside, outside the body and the Atma, what you call the Spirit , also leaves the body and stays outside the body which is the remaining body.

The constitution of this new body is different from our constitution. We can say a light that is extinguished has all the body except for the light .But the light goes out of that body . In the same way in a human being who dies, the Spirit and the Kundalini leave the body but they are around that body .

It is a great procedure that follows which is fantastic, it ‘s unbelievable how the body disappears into different elements also.

But first of all let us see when such bodies which remain like that , they go into what you call , the Preta Lok. There they become seeds or they can become smaller and smaller and smaller till one body forms and ova and a –what you know as a –sperm. In one body it is formed.

I don’t know if you have seen the division of chromosomes, how it takes place. Is a complete division. If the chromosome is like that, is a complete vertical division and a complete separation takes place.

That is why marriages and selection of partners , all these have a great play-for ordinary bodies –it does not matter for the Divine- They take place in such a manner that there can be at random connections established. For example an ova of one may combine with the sperm of another. It happens at a very lower stage of evolution . Among human beings also it happens like that, for some people who are just not very evolved we can say. But mostly the ova rejects the sperms . It only accepts that sperm which is meant to be accepted.

Now it is such a minute work , it is so fantastic that it is unbelievable. We have no idea as to how God works out. Is absolutely tremendous, that even the ovum rejects , goes on rejecting the sperm that is not the second part of itself. And that’s how so many sperms are wasted and so many ova are wasted .Then you can imagine that there is a tremendous machinery which is working out this. Specially people who are realized even they are reborn . All forces of Divine combine to see that this ova is placed with the person who is ultimately going to meet the person who has the proper sperm so that there is no problem as far as the meeting is concerned and the Divine takes all the care of these great souls.

The work of the Divine is very very fantastic and it is beyond human conception to understand how the awareness of God can look after all the minute , small things of the world. You cannot do even a small thing like attaching this to this one unless until you pay some human attention. So you can imagine the attention of God who embeds so many seeds in this Mother Earth and gives this such huge big trees.

I mean , we have taken them for granted but if you watch , you will see this fantastic , dynamic force behind it. Thinks it, this does it so perfect. But we think that it is all automatic and that’s how we can bear it and that’s how we can bear sahaja yoga also , thinking that is all automatic.”

Shri Mataji: Question & Answers (26.01.77 in Bordi)

Fear of Death?! Not for a Yogi or Realized Soul

“And when you die what happens to you is a very simple thing — that you feel liberated, absolutely, and then you feel your freedom, completely, and you can decide what to do. It’s all under your own guidance, your own desires, everything works out. You don’t feel that you have come out of your body and this is what (I) should tell you: that there should be no fear of death but on the contrary should be welcomed because you will feel much more liberated, much more at ease…”

Shri Mataji Nirmala Devi on ” How to Achieve Complete Freedom, Cabella, Italy” — May 7, 1995

What is the Real Death ?! Who Won over Death?! Let’s find Answers in Jesus Christ’s Resurrection and Knowledge about the Agnya Chakra

“Today, we are all here assembled in Turkey, in Istanbul, to celebrate the resurrection of Christ and, with that also, your celebration of your resurrection.
Christ’s resurrection was a great message for us. He won over the death and came out of that dead body with another body which was living body. The body was the same, but one was a dead body and another one was a body which was living. It’s not only symbolic, it actually happened within. After all, He was a divine child, He was a divine person. Actually it has happened within. It’s not just a symbolic thing that He died and He was resurrected into another person or, you can say, into a living person. For Him, what is the death? For eternal beings, there are no deaths. There’s no death for a person who’s eternal. He may, for the time being, look as if He is dead, but He can never die. Christ was like that, a very, very special incarnation, which came on this earth to be reborn out of the dead.
Now we are also, when we are not yet realized souls, when we are not yet enlightened. We are also dead in the sense, our awareness is very, very… I should say, absolutely dull and dead. We can see flowers, we can see faces, we can see buildings, we can see cities, we can see all those things. All these things we see and we feel we are quite aware, which we are not.
Actual awareness comes to us when we cross the limits of our mind, go beyond the mind, and this was only possible because of the resurrection of Christ. He resurrected Himself because He was a divine person. But also we are resurrected because we are blessed by Divinity. Now this mind of ours, which is in between, is controlled by Shri Jesus Christ. He controls through your Agnya, both the sides. He controls your conditionings and He controls your ego and brings a balance in you.
But when this Agnya Chakra starts sprinkling, all sorts of ideas, sometimes reacting, sometimes accepting conditionings… it is a slave, it is not a free thing, because it is working under the influence of your ego or your superego. For that is the death of our awareness, that we cannot, we cannot understand something beyond. That there exists a life beyond this, we cannot accept, this is… We have seen now that we were all in a condition that one was deadened. We were feeling bad, we were feeling anxious, we were fighting and we were thinking: ‘There’s something wrong with our present life. There’s something definitely which makes us slave, by which we are slavish.’ That we realized, no doubt, and we started seeking the Truth. We started seeking the Truth in so many ways, I know so many were… also went astray, and they lost their balance and have fallen into a complete demise.
But so many of you have been salvaged, have been saved by the great example of Christ’s resurrection. He had to venture it, He had to do it and He worked it out. Without Him, our Agnya chakra would not have been that flexible. As it is, the human beings in the olden times were conditioned very much. And when they have become modern, they are full of ego, nothing in between. With these two influences, we are imprisoned, we are absolutely dead people. We have no sensitivity for anything.
I’ve seen now… even today, you can see about things are happening across, is people are very anxious to kill each other. Human beings want to kill human beings, can you imagine? Such a stupid thing that we should kill our kith and kin. Then, there are children who are killing, parents that are killing, no relationship is accepted. It’s a sign of a person whose awareness is completely dead. In our awareness, at least we should have feelings of compassion and love. But that one is lost, it’s not there, we don’t have it. The whole world is a flame, when you read about all the wars that are going, the way they are killing children, the way they are destroying human beings.
It is a wrong attitude that with discretion of human beings, things will improve. It’s a very, very wrong concept that by destroying them, one can achieve something. Our work in Sahaja Yoga is doing well, I must say, but it has to stop this horrible attitude of human beings to destroy. So you might ask then: “What to do, Mother? What to do to destroy this destruction?” Answer is in the life of Christ. You resurrect people, you resurrect them, enlighten them, bring to a state where they understand what is right and what is wrong. Let them feel, let them feel the compassion and love that is within you.”

Shri Mataji’s Talk on Easter Celebration with Yogis from the World (April 25, 1999 – Istanbul, Turkey)

Lacrimosa by Mozart

*Mozart is considered to be a realized soul by Sahaja Yogis

Kahlil Gibrain

* poet considered to be a realized soul by Sahaja Yogis

You would know the secret of death.
But how shall you find it unless you seek it in the heart of life?
The owl whose night-bound eyes are blind unto the day cannot unveil the mystery of light.
If you would indeed behold the spirit of death, open your heart wide unto the body of life.
For life and death are one, even as the river and the sea are one.
In the depth of your hopes and desires lies your silent knowledge of the beyond;
And like seeds dreaming beneath the snow your heart dreams of spring.
Trust the dreams, for in them is hidden the gate to eternity.
Your fear of death is but the trembling of the shepherd when he stands before the king whose hand is to be laid upon him in honor.
Is the shepherd not joyful beneath his trembling, that he shall wear the mark of the king?
Yet is he not more mindful of his trembling?
For what is it to die but to stand naked in the wind and to melt into the sun?
And what is it to cease breathing, but to free the breath from its restless tides, that it may rise and expand and seek God unencumbered?
Only when you drink from the river of silence shall you indeed sing.
And when you have reached the mountain top, then you shall begin to climb.
And when the earth shall claim your limbs, then shall you truly dance.
This Article is dedicated to two dear friends and Sahaja Yoga Meditation practitioners that passed away this December. Both lived very fulfilled and long lives * they were in their 80s * and their names are: Maria Petrescu from Romania and Carol Weinberg from Oakville, Halton region, Canada.

    Missing you Carol but also understanding that this is a part of all our journeys. So glad to have meditated and reached those heights of consciousness collectively. You are beaming here, ever positive, and full of joy. It was simply wonderful to have you around,visiting at mama Carmela’s with so many of us and sharing your deep connection with mother earth and Sahaja Yoga.

  2. Helen

    May their souls rise higher and higher.

    Deep sympathy to the family and friends. May healing begin

  3. Jayanthi

    May Shri Mataji help their soul evolve, when Carol came to our place last time I can recall her beautiful smile and love. I will pray for her family to cope with their loss.

  4. Rebecca Amyotte

    My dear friend, Carol, was a true joy to everyone who came into contact with her. She always made me smile just being in her company. She used to make me laugh when she would tell her wonderful stories. One story was the positive way she would start each day. She would wake up and look in the mirror through blurry eyes with her hair going in all directions, and would wrap her arms around herself and say “Good morning beautiful!” We should all do the same by beginning our day with love in our hearts and a smile on our faces. Carol had a depth to her that is very rare in human beings. She absolutely was a realized soul and she radiated love to everyone who met her. I truly loved my beautiful friend and I will miss her presence greatly in my life. I also know that her light will be even brighter now that she has transcended to a new dimension. I feel that she will always be my guardian angel, still teaching me from greater heights. I just need to continue to work on increasing my self-realization so that I can connect in a deeper way to my dearest angel ?. I want to continue to be open to her beautiful, inspirational messages and to be just like Carol when I grow up!

    Missing You Carol
    may your soul rest in peace and harmony

    Fear of death exists (some institutions exploit this fear), so it is good to learn that our spirit does not really die.

  7. Kruti

    Shri Mataji’s words and Kahlil Gibrain’s poem on death is really comforting, specially nowadays when you hear about all the calamities in this world everyday. Death is a crucial reality of our lives and it is painful to see your loved ones go. However, it also reminds us to embrace and cherish each day of our lives with love and compassion.

  8. Colleen

    “Christ was like that, a very, very special incarnation, which came on this earth to be reborn out of the dead.“ It is that time now. The second coming of Christ is this happening, now in this awakening time.
    It is very exciting times, witnessing so many awaken after humanity has been in such a slumber. We as Yogis are here as the example for the others. To help show them the way. Love and hugs to all.

  9. Helen

    The explanation of what happens when we die is very helpful.
    Thank you so much!

  10. Rabi

    Though I have my full attention on Halton collective and land of Shri Vishnu Maya. Where I find beautiful flowers blooming and beautiful people staying and spreading their wings to bring higher awareness in the collective consciousness of people.

    Though I have heard these divine messages in my spiritual journey but always love revision and understanding. It’s nothing less than rebooting everyday the knowledge about evolution and existence and what after.
    No one before ever attempted yo speak and take us so near to the truth. It feels like a fantastic vision into our past present and future existence.

    Never say die. We live on changing dress may be a parables but is factually a true analogy to make belief. Never fear death. Welcome when it arrives. Liberation is the word when one feels lighter and goes to comeback again.
    The concept of marriage in human and nature of reproduction in lower forms or animal are so well explained as never before.

    Thank you for touring us again into land of divinity.

    Thank you Ioana. In an attempt to pay tribute to the two beautiful soul that Halton misses today let’s pay the collective tribute to multitude human being who were flower children of God’s love. We miss them though but either they are reborn or soon will make a comeback. That’s how science also explains entropy.
