Shri Mataji about Jesus Christ:“This is the Child of the Divine.He came like a morning flower to make you happy. “
“Christ was the subtle, complete subtle. He was nothing but subtlety itself personified. He was so subtle, He was such.. that He walked on the water. He was nothing but pranava (in Sanskrit), just vibrations. There was no gross principle in Him. When we are celebrating the birthday of Christ we have to imbibe his qualities, his subtleties, his nature.
We should try to be subtler and subtler and not gross and this is what is important in Sahaja Yoga culture. In Sahaja Yoga culture, our attention is on the subtle. On the beautiful varieties of subtle. See all the sweetness and the goodness, all the artistic, aesthetic projections of human life. Not the gross, not the grotesque. It’s going to be a new culture for us. We have started the dharma (in Sanskrit, signifying the innate religion, right conduct, righteous and moral behaviour), but every dharma has to have a culture and we are the culture of sukshma, of the Subtler Life.
Subtler people are the most beautiful, are the most congenial, are the most idealistic, and are the most honorable like Christ.
So for us The Ideal is Christ. But always be able to sacrifice, coping with all the discomforts and problems and not talking about yourself, not worrying about yourself, not discussing others and judging others, but giving assurances that now we are at this level, we’ll be at a higher level and all the world has to come up to that level. Very positive talking, very positive thinking and very positive doing is the way you can really follow Christ. Whatever He had to do, He did it with such Great sense and Beauty. That is what it is.
So we have to be born like Christ today.”
Shri Mataji, talking about Christ during a Christmas Celebration with Sahaja Yogis in Pune, India, 25 December 1987
“Only Christ could be subtle because He’s the subtlest of subtle.
He’s even subtler than an atom because in the atom those vibrations, which move as asymmetric and symmetric movements, are subtler than the atom.
An this is the subtler of that also.
So in that little, very constricted area is only a personality like Christ, which is nothing but Purity.
There is no other element in Him but Purity.
All other incarnations have the five elements. He has nothing.
He is nothing but Pure Vibrations.
That’s why he could walk on water – because there was no mass in His body, no matter in His body – no matter, no element, except for Chaitanya itself.”
