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: 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 »

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: What is the sensitivity of the children?

Question: What is the sensitivity of the children? If they are sensitive, how would the children be guarded against being hurt by others?

Sahaja YogisShri Mataji: They know themselves.  They are very clever and they are to be told how to take a guarding thing around their body and all that and they do it.  They are very sweet.  Even little, little things they do with their hands, raising of their Kundalini (through Sahaja Yoga meditation), very sweet and they put immediately as soon as they see a horrid man, they just start doing like that.  They are very active.  Must say they are very good.

Question: Is your Spirit one with your mental and physical being or is it separate from it?

(Public Lecture, Brisbane 5th May, 1987)
Question: Is your Spirit one with your mental and physical being or is it separate from it?
Shri Mataji:  It enlightens all that.  Now can you say that this light that is enlightening us, is it one with us or without us?  You see light, the light is separate, the Spirit is separate from us, no doubt but is integrates everything.  The reason is we see, now for example, you are sitting in an enlightened way but supposing you are sitting in the darkness, you’ll be rushing each other, you will not know how you stand with each other.  There’s no integration.  So the light on the physical, mental, emotional side of our life is complete and completely integrated.  That’s a good question.

Question: When a person is enlightened (through Sahaja Yoga) can you give it to someone else?
Shri Mataji:  Of course.  Of course.  When you are enlightened you can enlighten another person, that’s the power you get.

Question: How does it happen?
Shri Mataji:  It happens because you become that.  Supposing there’s one candle, now this candle is not enlightened, all right.  Now I enlighten this, then with this candle I can enlighten any other candle.  So simple as that.  It is so simple.  You see everything that is divine is simple.  Everything that is human is complicated.  Take it like that.  Is extremely simple.
