“I would say that myself whatever I have done is this: that I have been able to find out a method how to give you Self-Realization (=awaken the Kundalini subtle energy) to masses. But it doesn’t mean that if I give to masses, they are all Sahaja Yogis, no. You must have seen, whenever you have your programs, people get realization when I am there and they come to programs for a while and then they drop off. The reason is they have not meditated. If they had meditated, they would have known what is their quality, what are they. Without meditation you don’t understand what is best for you.” (Shri Mataji: 21st March 1923 – 23 February, 2011)
“So, today is a day when you have to promise me that you’ll meditate every night, every evening, maybe in the morning also; whenever it is possible, if you can go into meditative mood, you are in contact with this Divine Power. Then whatever is good for you, whatever good for your society, for your country, all is done by this Divine Power. You don’t have to overpower the Divine Power. You don’t have to order, you don’t have to ask; just if you meditate, you are one with this all-pervading power which is another great blessing to us.”
“You must Meditate to enrich your Sahasrara (crown chakra), to cure it, to make it completely nourished by the Kundalini (energy). There’s no need to do many rituals, but meditation and also little bit of taking bandhan (the protection of the subtle centres-chakras that we learn in sahaja yoga practice) . Those who want to grow should meditate every day, whatever time you may come home, maybe in the morning, maybe in the evening, any time, but you will know that you are meditating when you can get into thoughtless awareness. Then you will know. Your reaction will be zero. You won’t react, because you are thoughtless. “
“True and lasting solution to present ills can be found
only by inner, collective transformation of human beings.“ – Shri Mataji
“The first and foremost thing, the essence of that, is peace. The peace has to be within, to begin with. You have to be peaceful within yourself. If you are not peaceful, if you are playing tricks with your ego, if you are just satisfying yourself, saying that you are peaceful, you are sadly mistaken. Peace is to be enjoyed within yourself. It is to be felt within yourself. So do not give wrong satisfactions to yourself. Do not give false notions to yourself. Don’t cheat yourself.Peace has to be felt within yourself and if you are not feeling that, you shouldn’t come and ask me, “Mother, why am I not feeling it?” because I am not going to tell you that something is wrong with you. You have to work it out that you should feel peaceful within yourself. It is not that you have too much of silence outside, you feel peaceful. The peace has to be within yourself. You have it. Your spirit is absolutely peaceful, ‘avyagra’, – without restlessness. There’s no restlessness in your spirit, absolutely peaceful and steady. It is for you to feel it. It is not for anybody else to certify you…Only the peace within can register whatever is auspicious, whatever is nourishing for your growth. So try to make peace with yourself. Do not fight with yourself… “ Shri Mataji – founder of sahaja yoga meditation, born on March 21st 1923 ( excerpt from a 1985 discourse )
