For more than forty years
in so many different countries,
Shri Mataji Nirmala Devi would open Her Public Programs
with these words.
But above all there are some special type of people…
special category of people whom I call as seekers
and these special type of people are seeking the ascent to that state of spirit,
they are not satisfied with their human awareness, so they are seeking a higher state
and when they become seekers there is a way out in this modern times.
Fremantle Town Hall, Perth (Australia), 8 February 1992
So this Kundalini that is your Mother,
she is there to supply you, nourish you, to look after you, to make you grow...
by giving you a higher personality - higher personality,
wider personality, deeper personality.
... it is not easy to understand God. He made all this universe in His compassion and love.
He created you as human beings also, in His compassion and love.
He doesn't need anything. But He loves. And you can't understand a person
who loves beyond any reason, without any reward...
just loves, for love's sake. We cannot think of any human being like that who can love,
only for love's sake. Only after realization, as you grow more and more,
you realise that loving is the greatest joy.

Meditation is the only way you can grow
because when you meditate you are in silence, you are in thoughtless awareness.
Then the growth of awareness takes place.
“Thoughtlessly aware” means you are aware, but there is no thought.
You become silent. It’s a thoughtless awareness.
And this thoughtless awareness is the one that gives you complete peace within yourself.
SAHAJA YOGA - A UNIQUE DISCOVERY
As a mother I would say that I have done the cooking for you. Why should you worry about how it is done?
If you are hungry you should start eating. If you are not actually hungry, but only inquisitive, what can I do?
I can neither force you to eat nor make you hungry with discussions or lecturing.
I leave it to your wisdom and to your freedom to feel that longing.
The word "Sahaja" (Saha + ja) means born with you or inborn. Whatever is inborn manifests without any effort.
Hence Sahaja Yoga is the name given to my system, which is effortless, easy, and spontaneous.
It is a part of Nature, you may call it life's source - the vitality of the Divine.
About Kundalini, all the scriptures, I must say, have described, all the scriptures without exception....
In the Bible Kundalini has been described in such a manner that it is not called as Kundalini, but they call it as “Tree of Fire”, “Tongues of Flames.”
1977 New Delhi (India)
So it is your pure desire that will work, because this kundalini is the power of pure desire,is the desire of God Almighty, is the feminine, the mother, we can call the Primordial Motherwho is reflected in your kundalini.
1994 Royal Albert Hall, London UK
On the tree of life there might have been very few flowers but now the blossom time has come.
Their fragrance of longing has collectively materialised the manifestation of Sahaja Yoga.
Many are going to jump into the realm of thoughtless awareness where you get introduced to yourself and start identifying with your universal nature.
Those who deserve will get the throne of their inner being which rules the skies of peace, and the oceans of divine love and supreme knowledge within, which is limitless.

When asked to understand that truth is what it is, we cannot conceive it.
We cannot organize it. We cannot order it.
Only, as a scientific personality, we should have an open mind to see what it is.
As we go to any university or any college, we try to find out what it is there, in the same way, when we have to find out about the truth, we have to be very open-minded.
But when we talk of love, we must know that love and truth are the same thing.
There is no difference at all between God's love and the truth itself.
... you are the Spirit. You are not this body. You are not this mind.
You are the Spirit. This is the greatest truth.
May 1986 - Houston - U.S.A.
Be kind to yourself. Be gracious to yourself and get your realisation.
This is the simple thing as a Mother I would like to tell you.
There is nothing to be done except getting your realisation...
You are not being forced to do it, your freedom is completely respected.
If your freedom is not respected, how are you going to enjoy it, the freedom of your spirit?
So it is completely in your hands, be free and accept, whether you get realisation or not.
