Establishing the peace within

Please enjoy the following Sahaja Yoga meditation talk in which Shri Mataji describes how to become detached and to achieve the peace within.  The talk was held at a public programme in Vienna, on the 19th July 1994.

So this detachment comes from within. It’s not to wear these dresses of renouncing or to shave your head, that’s not needed. It’s an inner happening. You don’t have to give up your families, you don’t have to give up your jobs, you have to be absolutely normal. But when you become thoughtlessly aware, the peace is established within. I have known many people who have got peace awards, this award, that award – they have no peace within, I don’t know how they got it. Actually most of them are very hot tempered. If you have to reach them you have to take a barge pole, somehow. You establish your peace within and then the whole world becomes like a drama. You get out of your problems and see them clearly. Like if you are standing in the water you are afraid of the waves, but if you get into the boat you can see the waves. But if you know how to swim you can jump in and save many others. This is how Sahaja Yoga works.

Your attention can go to any limit, you can find out about anyone dead or alive in any country. When we see television, we know about the ether. But I am talking about the subtle of the ether, which is so efficient, which is so fast, which is so active, and which is so loving. You find your life so blissful. People write to me about the miracles they have had. I asked somebody to compile them, and in one month he told me, “They have come up to my head like that, now what am I to do?” They said, “You better sort it out, Mother.” I said, “I have no time, all right, forget it.” Then you realize how glorified you are, what great thing you are.

The knowledge of your inner being

Please enjoy the following Sahaja Yoga meditation talk in which Shri Mataji describes how you become a more subtle person when you get your Self-realisation.  The talk was held at a public programme in Vienna, on the 19th July 1994.

When this kundalini rises, and she pierces through the sixth center, becomes one with this all-pervading subtle power, you also become subtler. On your fingertips you start feeling your centers. And if you know how to correct your centers you are all right, problems are solved. But also you can feel the centers of others. It’s like microcosm becoming macrocosm, it’s like a drop becoming an ocean. It sounds fantastic, but you don’t know how glorious you are, how fantastic you are. You don’t know yourself at all. You have no knowledge of your inner being. So you feel sometimes frustrated as if you have no identity. But once you start feeling this all-pervading power then you understand that you have many powers. You can cure yourself, you can cure others. You can raise others’ kundalini, give them realization.

The key to the absolute truth

Please enjoy the following video in which Shri Mataji Nirmala Devi, founder of Sahaja Yoga, explains how we can connect with our true Self. This public program talk is dubbed into German and was held on the 19th July 1994 in Vienna, Austria.

I bow to all the seekers of truth. At the very outset, I have to say that truth is what it is. You cannot change it, you cannot transform it, and it cannot compromise with you. It is, it has been, it will be the same. Whatever I have to tell you tonight you need not accept it blindfolded. We have had already very big problems with these blind faiths. You should have an open mind like a scientist and treat this talk as a hypothesis. But if it is proved then you have to accept as honest people. Because it is for your benevolence, it is for the benevolence of your country, it is for the benevolence of the whole world. The truth is that you are not this body, this mind, these emotions, intelligence, ego or your conditionings, but you are the pure Spirit. We see beautiful flowers around us, it’s actually a miracle. But we take it for granted. If we ask a doctor, “Who runs our heart?” he will say, “The autonomous nervous system.” But who is this ‘auto’? This they cannot answer. And who does all this living work? Who brought forth our evolution? There is no answer.
