Public Lecture (Brisbane Australia ’87)

Question: Is it possible that those who teach about the Spirit differ on different points?

(Public Lecture, Brisbane 5th May, 1987)
Shri Mataji: In the beginning they do little bit.  Is still they are not settled down.  You see they have to mature in Sahaja Yoga no doubt.  But in the beginning they do little bit differ but not much.  In the beginning they do little bit sometimes differ, that I have seen because one has to mature first of all.  Once they are matured they don’t.  They are very much in union with each other.  There’s no difference at all.

Question: Do you believe in reincarnation?

(Public Lecture, Brisbane 5th May, 1987)

Stain Glass, Jesus ChristShri Mataji: Yes, of course there is reincarnation. No doubt about it. And when Christ has said "I’ll come again", that means there is reincarnation. But most important thing, what are you now and what you get now, is the most important. We shouldn’t worry about what we were in last life. What does it matter.

Question: Most people say that from their previous experiences they find that it is not possible to have a moment or so where there is no thought.

Shri Mataji: Is true.  You cannot till the Kundalini is awakened, you can’t have.  You see one thought rises and falls another thought rises and falls.  There’s a little space in between which we call in Sanskrit as Vilumba, very little spaces.  Now what happened with Kundalini awakening, both these thoughts become elongated and this Vilumba increases.  So you will automatically have that.  You won’t have to worry about that.

Question: How did you begin this Sahaja Yoga meditation, how were you initiated in this group?

(Public Lecture, Brisbane 5th May, 1987)
Shri Mataji: I was not initiated. I had this from my very childhood. You see I know you would like to know about me, but it’s better first you know yourself. Then you will know about me better. All right?

Question: Why have the churches not told us about this (Self-Realization)?

Question: Why have the churches not told us about this (Self_Realization)?

Shri Mataji: That was not the time Sir. Imagine Christ lived only for three and half years, in the sense that for his spiritual undertakings. He was allowed only Shri Mataji, founderfor three and half years to live like that. Churches do not know it but even Christ, imagine for four years I was struggling with seven English boys and girls to give them Realisation. He did quite a good job, I must say still, but that was not the time. Christ actually came on this chakra, is the Agnya chakra. That was His time to show the way of resurrection. That was His life and that’s what He’s done. But the churches have missed the point. Churches have missed the point and they will go on missing the point because their main interest if it is how to make money, is not good. Or how to convert people is not good.

Question:  Are there a lot of holy people in the church?

Shri Mataji: There could be many people who are very simple. Who believe in Christ, who go to churches because they believe that they will be saved.  Continue Reading »
