Love

Now the love, as it is understood, is in your heart as this; but do you know the ocean of love is your Sahasrara? When your Sahasrara is filled with love, then the life is changed.

H.H.Shri Mataji Nirmala Devi, Delhi, March 2002

That Unbounding Love

Even when you get your realisation you are sometimes in a growing stage up to a point. Like you're nourished by the Mother Earth all the time, but you're not aware of it. In the same way the womb of Sahaja Yoga nourishes you to grow into beautiful human beings. Still you have to come up to a point when it has to click in such a way that you start feeling the awareness of that unbounding love. In the small children it clicks very fast because they're so innocent and uncomplicated and in some people also I've seen it click very fast - as soon as they get their realisation. Feel the awareness of that unbounding love.

Witness

Once you learn how to witness you will know the myth, you will know the absurdity, you will know the maya.

Peace

Peace can be only achieved by establishing peace in the hearts of the people. And that is only possible (when) you achieve the state of thoughtless awareness.

Bhavasagara

Bhavasagara is the ocean of illusion in which we live.

Ritualism

Is not necessary to have this ritualism, this kind of a rigmarole. Oh, all the time you go on. Everyday, morning till evening, nonsensical these things and they become fanatic. They start becoming absolutely fanatic about Sahaja yoga and this fanaticism can be very dangerous because they try to remember everything by heart, this and that. No, not necessary.

H.H.Shri Mataji Nirmala Devi, Shri Adi Shakti Puja 1995

I am with you

I am with you at every step, at every place. Everywhere. You may go anywhere. At every place I am with you, completely, in person, by mind and in every respect. Whenever you will remember me I will be by your side with all my powers. It is my promise."

H.H.Shri Mataji Nirmala Devi, Bombay, 27th May 1976

Peace within

Our speed has to be brought down. In the West we have become very speedy, no doubt, and to bring down this speed we have to use the meditative process, that we feel our peace within ourselves.

Detachment

Unless and until you are detached, you cannot ascend.

H.H. Shri Mataji Nirmala Devi, 1984

You are the channels

You are the channels. Without the channels this all pervading power cannot work out. That's the system. If you see the Sun, its light spreads through its rays - from your heart the blood flows through arteries, they become smaller and smaller. You are the arteries which are going to flow this blood of my love to all the people. If arteries are broken the blood will not reach the people. That is why you are so important. The bigger you become, the bigger the arteries become. Then you encompass more people, by that you are more responsible.

H.H. Shri Mataji Nirmala Devi, Advice to the Sahaja Yogis, Guru Purnima Day, London, 1980

Connection to the Spirit

The enjoyment of life is only possible if we could get connected to the Spirit and that connection to the Spirit, is only possible if you sprout into that: you become the Spirit. As Christ has said in very simple words that, "You are to be born again".
