These Questions have been posed to Shri Mataji at various events, such as public lectures and interviews. The answers are Her response to the questions.

Awareness – After Realisation, does one get knowledge of what is on the other side of death and does one find a little bit of God inside oneself?

The second point is correct. You find God within yourself, then your priorities change about knowing about things. You do not want to know what is beyond life because you come into the present. You are not worried about the past and the future, but that also you know because gradually your vision improves. You start seeing what happens after death. You see the patients coming to you and you start seeing they are spirits …

Awakening – What is achieved once this awakening happens? I mean, why are we better for it?

We are like a light. Now when you are enlightened, what happens to you? You see the light. In the light, you see yourself. All confusion is finished. You know the truth and you feel so blissful and happy because you know everything. There is no chaos, nothing. You are so relaxed and the power starts flowing through you all the time. It is never lost and you see in that light whatever is good …

Australia – Australia was inhabited by the aboriginal people who understood these things. Do you have any knowledge and feelings about these people?

Very much – the names are like Paramata. Paramata means the Primordial Mother. This Rock of Ayers is nothing but Ganesha Himself. This is the land of the Mooladhara chakra. You do not know what a land you are living in. Whatever you may try, you cannot lose your innocence in this country. It is a country of innocence. You keep a bit of it. It is a country of innocence. You will see all …

Attention – Shri Mataji, should we use any technique to train our attention?

Yes, there are many techniques, as you know, in Sahaja Yoga. As Naam Deva has said, “A boy is flying a kite in the sky and he is talking to everyone. He is listening to everyone. He is playing with his friends around, but his attention is on the kite.” Try to put your attention to your Spirit – simple. In everything, if you try to just put your attention to your Spirit, now you …

Attention – Shri Mataji, could You say something about maintaining our attention so that it stays where it should?

The best way is to learn how to watch yourself. Just now, sitting here, just put yourself into a position from where you watch yourself. “Now what am I doing?” This is the abbhyas. This is the study. Apart from mantras, apart from anything, the abbhyas is the practice, the practice of becoming a witness. And the witness is the spirit state. There attention will not go. I mean you will see everything…. That is …

Artist – Mother, perhaps You can see the beauty because You are the artist.

I am the artist and I am the art. But what about you? Who are you? You are the one who is created and you can create and you can become the artist. That is what I am saying, that you are not only the light, but the light that will give light to others. And also you will sustain that light, which you have given. This is the difference now between you and other …

Art – How is an artist, who is a Sahaja Yogi, by what means are they to create a piece of art?

The piece of art must emit vibrations. If it does not emit, that means there is something wrong. Go for some higher subjects like Kundalini, like the expression of Kundalini. The colours of Kundalini intrude into another world. You have to move into that world. You can see we have so many artists – for example, you can say Blake. And for a Sahaja Yogi, it should be a kind of a beautiful integration of …

Anger – When we get angry, is our anger just our tendency to react?

If you get angry within yourself and if you are sure that you are not doing anything wrong, for a Sahaja Yogi there is no need to say, “outside you are angry.” There is no need. That anger itself is a power and you should do your bandhan and anything that you want to do, but you should not show that you are angry. You should be absolutely silent because you can be. You are …
