Public Lecture (Brisbane Australia ’87)

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.

Question: How do we become aware of chakras (enegry centes) and do we correct them?

Question: You talked about the imbalances or blockages in the chakras. How do we become aware of them and do we correct them?

Shri Mataji: That’s what you will have to learn. Is very simple. You see once you get your Realisation you’ll have to come to our (Sahaja Yoga) centres and they Raising of the kundalinitell you how to do it. It’s very simple. There are few methods by which you can just clear them out. But you have to come to our centre, you see. You have to respect your Self Realisation and you have to little bit pay attention to it because people, you see to them is like a buying Coca Cola in a bar shop, is not Realisation. Is the epitome of your evolution. Is the highest thing and has to be respected that way. They come to my lectures all right. But they don’t try to work out their Realisation. You have to work it out and you have to become masters. You have to become you own gurus. All of you can.

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.
