Shri Mataji – the founder of Sahaja Yoga Meditation
“The light (in general) has innocence, but this is innocent without knowledge.
But your light is innocent with knowledge.
We always think that the people who have got knowledge can never be innocent, can never be simple. And the idea we have got about innocence is that an innocent person is always deceived, can be be-fooled – and can be always taken for granted.
But innocence is a power; it is a power which protects you, which gives you light of knowledge.“
“Knowledge that we have in the worldly sense is how to exploit others, how to cheat others, how to make money out of them, how to make fun of others, how to look down upon others.
But the light of innocence is the light by which you know that Love is the highest thing.
And it teaches you how to love others, how to care for others, how to be gentle about others. It also gives you the Light Within. ”
