“It depends on what do you want. You want to be nourished: all right, so the Kundalini is there, the Mahalakshmi Principle is there, it will nourish you. But if you don’t want, nobody is going to force you in any way. Nobody is going to jump on you or form some sort of a formidable oppression: nothing of the kind. It’s just like a River Ganges, you can say, which is flowing. Now if you want you can fill up your pitchers. If you don’t want, She is not going to enter into your pitchers. She is not going to come in your house and get into your pitchers. So there has to be a desire to get it, and that is what is called as bhakti. Bhakti is the desire, the devotion, to get the joy of bhakti.” © Shri Mataji Nirmala Devi, photo @clemencedaya
Sahaja Yoga is a system by which your attention enters into your Spirit; it’s an actualization. It is not talking, it is not sermoning, it is not conditioning, but it is a happening. And this happening takes place within us because we are made that way. God has created us specially for this last happening within us, where we become connected with our Spirit, and thus we become connected with the Spirit of all the people and actualize the experience of collective consciousness. It’s no question of giving any, what you call the brainwashing about it; it’s just a happening that has to take place within you.” © Shri Mataji Nirmala Devi
“The woman is known by the amount of sacrifices she makes. It’s a challenge, I tell you, for all of you woman who are Realised souls to see to it, that you humble down yourself. Your quality cannot improve unless and until you humble down. On everything you assert. For what? It’s impossible to worship Virgin when we are so arrogant and so strangling type.
The Virgin is a simple woman. She is extremely simple. She does not understand what are your plans and what is so important, everything. Her importance is her virginity, that she knows, and she will not allow anybody to touch it. That’s her property, that’s her wealth, that’s her greatness. And she’s humble because she is not afraid of anyone. She is not aggressive. But she doesn’t allow anybody to aggress; nobody dares aggress a real Virgin.” © Shri Mataji Nirmala Devi
“Because we are seekers of truth, we do not belong to any country. We belong to the universe: Vishwa Nirmala Dharma. We do not belong to Australia, we do not belong to Brisbane. You see, this belonging becomes so small and so mean that ultimately it will become, we belong to this street and then we belong to this room, and we belong to this bathroom. Start going down, down, down, so much! While is it Vishwa Nirmala Dharma [which] means it is a universal religion. We belong to the universe. We are part and parcel of the universe. Not only belonging to one place or one location. We cannot. Now we have gone into eternal life. We have gone to something that is unlimited. So we belong to this universe.” © Shri Mataji Nirmala Devi, photo @painterinahurry @cabella.school
“Now first is the Adya Lakshmi. Adya is the one who is The Primordial, Primordial Lakshmi. As I told you about, that She came out of the Sea. So that’s what we call Christ’s Mother was called as Mary, Maria, because She came from Marine. People don’t know why she was called as Mary. my name also is, as you know, is Nira, meaning coming from water.” © Shri Mataji Nirmala Devi
“A new page has been turned now, in Sahaja Yoga. I must warn you all about it. Don’t take liberties too much with Sahaja Yoga. You are not obliging anyone else but yourself, be careful. Take up my warnings always seriously. You ‘all’ have to come up very well now. It is not only doing my puja is going to help you, I can tell you this much. Now you better worship your Self. You have to worship all your Gods within you. Cleanse them.” © Shri Mataji Nirmala Devi, photo @priotato
