“And the Surya (Sun) has given us so many powers that it is impossible to tell them even in one lecture, even in ten lectures. But how we go against Surya and how we go against Saraswati, while doing the worship of Saraswati, it is to be seen very clearly within ourselves. For example the
Western people are very fond of Surya because they have no Surya. But they go too far with it, as you know, and create complications within themselves of Surya. But the main thing that one has to achieve through Surya is the Light Vivek – is The Light Within.”
“And if Surya Chakra at the Agnya level (known as the Third Eye energy centre) is occupied by Lord Jesus Christ then it is even more essential that the purity of life, what you call ‘Niti’, is the morality of life. Now morality itself has become very much sort of an argument in the West. People don’t have any sense of absolute morality. On vibrations of course you know. But they have all gone against it. Those who are worshippers of Lord Jesus, those who are the worshippers of the Surya, of the Saraswati have all gone against, against the powers of Surya, just disobeying it. Because you cannot be a Surya if you don’t have a proper sense of morality and holiness. The Surya itself brings light to see everything clearly. So many qualities Surya has got. It dries up everything that is wet, dirty, filthy. It dries up all those places which create parasites. But so many parasites are created in the West. Not only parasites, but there are horrible cults and horrible things which have come into that; those countries which are supposed to be full of light, and in that Darkness they exist: darkness about the Spirit, darkness about their own knowledge and darkness about love.”
“These three things have taken over in the places where you are supposed to love light. Light does not mean what you see with your gross eyes. Light means from within – the Light of love. That one should understand – Light of love. And it is so soothing, it is so sweet, it is so beautiful. It is so enamouring, it is so abounding that unless and until you can feel that light within you – that light which is of pure love of purity, pure relationship, pure understanding. If you can develop that kind of a light within yourself, then the whole thing will be cleansed. ‘Wash me and I shall be whiter than snow.'”
What are our Chakras Made of ?!
“This is what happens to you when you are completely cleansed. The purest form of Nature is within us. The purest form of Nature is within us. Our Chakras are made out of that purest form of Nature. We are the only people who are spoiling it, by our mental thinking. Against the same Saraswati power. You are going against Saraswati itself. Saraswati cleanses all that is impure in nature, while with our brain activity we are spoiling all that. All our brain activity goes against pure intelligence. And that is what one has to understand – that this pure intelligence, is not to be soiled by our thinking. Our thinking can make us so bumptious, so ego-oriented. so impure that we can really eat the poison and say ‘what is wrong in it’? Just the opposite of Saraswati. If Saraswati is within us, She gives us Subuddhi, Wisdom. And that is why to worship Saraswati, to worship Surya, we must have that clear vision as to what we have to be. What we are doing. What filth we are living in. What our mind is getting into. After all we are here for emancipation and not for just for pampering our ego and living with our filth that is with us. So this light has come within us and we should try to rise above our own mental filth which is being created around us.”
The above are excerpts from a beautiful lecture offered by the founder of Sahaja Yoga on Swadhisthana Chakra and its governing Principle, Shri Saraswati with connections in Nature – Dhulia, 1983 . Nowadays we are so much challenged by subtle forms of darkness and what is dangerous is that the rationality, our trained mind can find these forms acceptable. The above sahaj definitions and explanations are good reminders /warnings that our chakras are indeed made of pure ‘material’ that cannot be ‘convinced’ to receive / identify the darkness as light; even more, our chakras react and reject any impurities from our system and will promptly notify us that our subtle centres are affected, through this vibratory awareness that we experience in Sahaja Yoga Meditation.
