Question: What happens to a man if he is a realized soul?

Public Lecture (New Delhi '83)

Question – What happens to a man if he is a realized soul?

Shri Mataji: Now that is – I have been telling you what happens to a man he is a realized soul that his ego and super ego are sucked in and he gets a dent in the fontanel bone area, and the Kundalini shoots off, and he can feel the Cool Breeze coming out of his head, and he can feel it in his hand. This is only on the central nervous system this happens. But so many things happen much more – how to use this power, what it means and all that you have to learn.

Question: Shri Mataji, would you say a few words about the golden age? The forthcoming golden age?

Press Conference (London '99)

Question: Shri Mataji, would you say a few words about the golden age? The forthcoming golden age?

Shri Mataji: You see, Aquarius, as they say, Aquarius according to our astrology is the Kundalini. The Kundalini is Aquarius according to Indian, I should say, Indian science of Astrology.

Shri Mataji New YorkAnd, you see, they, what they say that this age of Aquarius is very important, because this will change the lives of people. And that is what they have already described about this, that now there was Kali Yuga, means the worst possible times. The whole Kali Yuga means the absolutely the worst and worst possible time for our destruction. That was over. Then comes Kruta Yuga, I mean, overlapping. Now, in Kruta Yuga, this all-pervading power, they call it Paramchaitanya, becomes active. It starts helping people to come along.

That also has been going on some days.

After this, is Satya Yuga. It’s the age of truth. But it’s a last judgement. If you take to truth, alright, well and good. But if you don’t take to truth you are judged. It’s like this. Continue Reading »

Question: Youth in Western Europe, in America are looking for a destination or for a destiny…

Radio Interview (Austria '84)

Interviewer: Youth in Western Europe, in America are looking for a destination or for a destiny, not for a destiny, but they ask…

Shri Mataji: Seeking for the beyond, yeah.

Interviewer: So doesn’t this also mean that Western philosophy doesn’t offer a proper way for the beyond, for the way there, as more and more get in some case included in Eastern philosophy, if we say in general yoga is Eastern philosophy. Do you see that the high-industrialized western world has a lack of ways to offer to the mental human being?

Shri Mataji: That’s what I was telling the other gentleman also that, you see, the Western civilization is like the tree outside, and the Eastern understanding of Shri Mataji giving Vibrationsthe Spirit is like your roots. So there is a continuity, I mean I cannot separate one from another, you need the tree and a tree needs the roots also. Roots must have the tree, you cannot do without it, so both things are complementary to each other. But when there is an imbalance, like a tree grows too much beyond, and it doesn’t reach its source, then there could be a destruction. And that’s what exactly what has happened in the West, that you have overdeveloped yourself, and that overdevelopment has led you to a problem, because you are exhausted the Mother Earth, exhausted your energies, exhausted your brains, everything is at an exhaustion point.  Continue Reading »

Question: Shri Mataji, don’t you know many people that want more of yoga than yoga can give?

Radio Interview (Austria '84)

Interviewer: Shri Mataji, don’t you know many people that want more of yoga than yoga can give.

Shri Mataji: You see, yoga is a big misnomer in the West, people don’t know what this yoga is. Because even if you read Patanjali, it is said that you have to Shri Matajiget to your Self–Realization and then how to grow in your Self–Realization. Once you start growing in your Self–Realization, you develop such a personality that you see the whole world as one. You reach your wholesomeness. And when you reach your wholesomeness the complete balance and the curative sense comes in. Like you see, if there is a problem in my left finger, I’ll try to rub it, all right, I rub it and I soothe myself, whom am I helping, whom am I supporting, what is a developing country, what is a developed country, you see? You need something from the developing and you have to have the developed. So the whole thing is, that we haven’t got the wholesomeness. We are not integrated. Continue Reading »

Question: Mother, is it a symbol of your photograph that gives vibrations?

Public Lecture (Vancouver Canada '90)

Question: Mother, is it a symbol of your photograph that gives vibrations?

Shri MatajiShri Mataji: It’s true. My photograph luckily has some sort of a coefficience that it emits vibrations. I mean, I would like anybody else’s photograph if it does, because it’s a good idea; but I don’t think there’s anyone like that, because none of the incarnations and none of the saints were photographed. It’s very surprising, nobody was photographed. At the most, and also, nobody was portrayed in their lifetime, because you know what happened to all the saints and to all the incarnations: when they lived, everybody was after their lives. No question of having so many people. I mean, even Christ had hardly twelve people and how they tortured His life! Actually, if you see His public life, He lived hardly for three and a half years and they crucified Him.

So, this is what the world was. It’s not so bad now. I mean, nobody is going to crucify me, Continue Reading »
