Establish the dignity of your children

Please enjoy the following Sahaja Yoga talk by Shri Mataji Nirmala Devi which took place on the 27th March 1981 in Sydney.

Give with your full heart

Please enjoy the following Sahaja Yoga talk, given by Shri Mataji Nirmala Devi on the 27 March 1981 in Sydney.  In Sahaja Yoga it is important to use your heart when doing things, and it is certainly also true when expressing your generosity.

If you give them power either they become dictatorial or they become destroyers. I mean, you cannot give anything to human beings without realization. Anything they get extreme, they become mad.

Please enjoy the following Sahaja Yoga talk, in which Shri Mataji talks about the prinicple of the Nabhi chakra which has the quality of peacefulness, generosity and satisfaction. Through Sahaja Yoga meditation it is possible to establish these qualities within oneself.

With such a man finished they’ll say, oh thank God he died, he was a horrible terror for us. So, that kind of a life can come with Raja Laxshmi. But in the center is the Laxshmi. Laxshmi is the goddess, is the power within us, by which we balance, lead a very balanced life, by which we are satisfied. Now they have made a beautiful picture of this Laxshmi also one should understand this power is a lady, is a mother and she stands on a lotus. Now these are all symbols which suggest that, these symbols are carved out with such deep significance. She stands on a lotus. Means imagine, who can stand on a lotus? And she’s a very healthy woman, very healthy woman and she stands on a lotus. It means that, that she is never putting pressure on anyone.
