Understanding the kundalini

Get the Flash Player to see this content.

Today again we are back together and I bow to you all who are the seekers of truth. Yesterday it was the introduction of Sahaja Yoga in which I explained to you what is the truth. A gentleman yesterday raised three, four questions regarding Kundalini. As I told you that the knowledge of this Kundalini is the knowledge of the roots on which we sustain ourselves. The whole instrument is called as tree of life in the Bible. Actually Christ didn’t have sufficient time to explain many things because he was crucified so prematurely. We only know four years of his life where he spoke to people, where his disciples, whatever they could gather, have written in their own opinions. So now whatever I tell you about Kundalini, I say is the knowledge of the roots we know about the shoot. In the West specially we know about the shoot and nothing about the roots.

This knowledge has been a secret knowledge for thousands of years till it came in the sixth century the Adi Shankaracharya, who was a very great realized soul, who came on this earth, he started talking about it. About 14,000 years back since then we can see there were poets who wrote about Kundalini like Markandeya. But it is in the poetry form and was only available to very few people who were capable of coming to the situation of Self-realization.

About 8,000 years back, Raja Janaka, who was the father-in-law of Shri Rama, was the first one, where we see clearly that one disciple called Nachikita who went to him for Self-realization. But Janaka told him, you can ask for anything else, but not for Self-realization. So we can understand very few people got realization in those days. Viditama, who was a disciple of Buddha went to Japan and started Zen system of religion. “Zen” means meditation. But it is written that there were only 26 kashapas up to the eighth century. Kashapas are the realized souls. So in the sixth century Adi Shankaracharya talked about it. In the Bible there is a mention that I will appear before you like tongues of flames. Bible is a sacred book, but is also very secretive. The knowledge of Bible is extremely symbolic and unless and until you are a realized soul you cannot understand it. So this Kundalini resided here in the triangular bones of [inaudible] called sacrum. This bone is called “sacrum” by the Greeks. And they know a lot about the Primordial Mother and her manifestations into three aspects. I asked them, “When did you discover all these things, was that when Alexander came to India?” So they said “No, it was discovered much, much before that, when there was Indo-Arian report between our country and India.”

Self-realisation with Shri Mataji

Get the Flash Player to see this content.

It’s beautiful. I mean these are the real seekers of what William Blake has described. So very happy. All right. So now we’ll have to have our Self-realization. First of all I have to tell you that all of you should have full confidence that you can get your Self-realization. Whatever may be your race, whatever may be your religion, whatever may, you might have done, whatever may be your age, anything, you all can get Self-realization. That is first confidence with it, it is very important. Not to doubt yourself. In no way please doubt yourself. You are all ready just to get your realization. But still there are, I must say, three conditions which are very simple if you understand.

The first one is that you are not to feel guilty at all. It’s a fashion to feel guilty sometimes, sometimes we feel guilty. This guilt business is of no use, I tell you. After all you are human beings, and human beings can only commit mistakes, you are not God. So what is there to feel guilty? Are you feeling guilty because you are a human being? But it’s very difficult for people not to feel guilty. It’s something so much built in; especially in the West I’ve seen people feel too much guilty. Not in India. I don’t think Indians know that style. There’s nothing to feel guilty, and those who tell you that you are a sinner, just think there is something wrong with them. Nobody has business to say that. At present you understand that none of you are guilty in the eyes of God. Take it from me. Believe me. So forget it and don’t feel guilty about anything whatsoever you have done. Let the kundalini decide. You don’t do it. But do you know that if you feel guilty then this center goes out of order? A very remarkable center this one is, on the left side. When it goes out of order what happens? You might get angina, you might get spondylitis, or your organs may become lethargic. Physically it has an effect. We always say in English language “pain in the neck”; see somebody must be knowing about it to say “pain in the neck”. You see this pain in the neck is nothing but feeling guilty. It’s all mental. Try to understand it’s all mental. So this is the first condition you have.

The second one is that you have to forgive everyone without even thinking about them, in general. This is another very difficult situation. But just see logically. Whether you forgive or don’t forgive what do you do, logically? Nothing. What do we do? We are just torturing ourselves. When we don’t forgive others we are just torturing ourselves. But the people who have troubled us are very happy, while we are playing into their hands and torturing ourselves. You’ll feel much lighter if you just in your heart you say, “I forgive everyone.” In general. Don’t think of them. Thinking itself is a headache.

Now the third one is also very simple as I’ve said. You should be very confident because you are a human being and on the whole you should be very pleasantly placed towards yourself. You shouldn’t condemn yourself. In no way you should try to say that how is it possible and everything will work out because it’s all built in. Now supposing you come in this hall and you have to put on the lights, you have to just switch on because it’s built in. But supposing outside only you start saying, it may not work, it will work, whatever. You just see if it works or not. Why not give it a full chance? So don’t doubt yourself. It is going to work out. This is very important, I must tell you, because we have learnt to doubt ourselves, doubt others. There’s nothing to doubt. You all have got this power within yourselves, and it will work, I am sure it will work. Continue Reading »
