Public Lecture (Brisbane Australia ’87)

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.

Questions: Is it fair to say that the Kundalini in you arises and meets your mother energy coming from above?

Questions: Is it fair to say that the Kundalini in you arises and meets your mother energy coming from above?
Shri Mataji: It is all pervading power all right. When the Kundalini rises what she does, she enlightens our subtler side of our nerves, our brains and Rising Kundalini Sahaja Yoga experienceeverything. She enlightens and by that we start feeling it. Is the enlightenment that we get because of her connection with the all pervading power. It exists, already it exists. But you cannot feel it normally. When she rises, then your nerves are so enlightened that you can feel it. All right? You might be already getting it. I think so. All right should we have it now?

(Editor – The image on the right shows the awakened Kundalini energy rising up the centre channel and enlightening each chakra until it reaches the seven chakra and the top of the head. At this point, Self -Realization is achieved. The Sahaja Yoga technique facilitates this process.)

Questions: I have heard that there are stories that it is dangerous to arouse the Kundalini. Why are there such stories?
Shri Mataji: These stories are because people who are not authorised have tried to raise the Kundalini. The person who has to raise the Kundalini has to be authorised by the divine.  Continue Reading »

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: Do you have to sit in any special posture while you are doing this (Sahaja Yoga meditation), or can it be done at any time and in any form?

Meditating by the sea

(Public Lecture, Brisbane 5th May, 1987)
Shri Mataji: No.  You see in this Sahaja Yoga you become the Spirit.  Then you don’t have to meditate much, about ten minutes or so is sufficient and there’s nothing much particular restriction or anything in it.  You can sit in any pose you like, there is no restriction of any kind.  Because you become the Spirit.  Only thing is you have to get into thoughtless awareness, that’s the first state is, which we call as Nivichara.  For that state to achieve you see you have to sit down just and refuse to take any thoughts in your mind.  Just say not this, not this.  So suddenly because your Kundalini’s there already up there, so you become thoughtlessly aware.  Once you become thoughtlessly aware you can stay like that for about five minutes or so, just that’s all.  It’s not much time is needed because you are in meditation.

Question: Should I search for the material or for the spiritual?

Question: I have a search for the material and a search for the spiritual, but while I am young should I use it for the search for the material or the search for the spiritual?

Shri Mataji: If you get the Spirit you get the material automatically. The whole material is controlled by the Spirit. Is very surprising how you get it. Is you enter Shri Mataji, founderinto the realm of God. You’ll be amazed that in England, there’s such a lot of joblessness, people don’t have jobs at all, unemployment. See all these words I don’t know. Unemployment. But not a single Sahaja Yogi is unemployed. Not a single Sahaja Yogi is unemployed. The other day, one gentleman was to come from Paris to Australia for a particular seminar and he thought he wanted to come because this is the other side of the world and all that, but quite excited. But he didn’t have money, and suddenly he got the money which he wasn’t to get for eight years. Suddenly he got the money, he is here. All such miracles work out. Continue Reading »
