“Wisdom is a temperament, is a quality of a personality which comes to you by balancing yourself, by trial and error method. All traditional countries innately have much more wisdom than people who are not traditional.” © Shri Mataji Nirmala Devi, photo @vimmmkin
“… the brotherhood and sisterhood is the base of our Sahaj Yoga collectivity. If you understand that brotherhood and sisterhood is love which is very pure. There is no expectation. It’s just love. It’s giving love and taking love. And absolute purity within us should exist between our relationships when we call them as Sahaj Yogi brothers and sisters. And as there is understanding, complete understanding, between the brother and sister in a family, one has to know we are all part and parcel of a family, born of the same Mother.” © Shri Mataji Nirmala Devi, photo @mavinvijay
“So the marriage is the best way to give happiness to others, by having sweet children, having a good family, having sensible life, gives such a joy to all the collectivity.” © Shri Mataji Nirmala Devi, photo @masha.shal.photographer
“You have fragrance, which is the fragrance of all the flowers put together. You are the essence of all the beauties of nature that is created, all the symphonies and all the music that you hear, all the art that you have created has come from you. That is your part, while you are the whole, you are the totality. But you do not feel your totality. That’s the problem is that human beings do not feel their totality.” © Shri Mataji Nirmala Devi, photo @e_chizhova
“When your value system is corrected, you understand what is good for the society, what is good for you. For example, if it’s a lotus flower, it will never emit filth and dirt. The fragrance will be always there if it is a rose or any other fragrant thing, it will emit fragrance only. It cannot emit something that is filthy.
Now those who think they are gurus and have achieved that gravity will never write something which is ugly, say something which is dirty, will never use their mind to appreciate anything that is filthy and wrong. This is the second sign of your value system.
In your value system you have to first of all understand what is auspiciousness, what is Divine beauty, and what is morality of the Spirit.” © Shri Mataji Nirmala Devi, photo @sandra_sunnyday @masha.shal.photographer
“So, all that is sustaining, all that is nurturing, all that is ennobling comes from this sense of love, which is within us very much developed, but within others also, who are not yet Realised. Ultimately the whole world has to realise that one has to go to that ultimate love of God, otherwise it has no meaning.” © Shri Mataji Nirmala Devi, photo @sy_way
