I bow to all the seekers of truth. Today we find in the whole world a great inner movement to seek the truth. This movement has come because we feel that so far whatever we have tried we have not been very successful. We are not being happy, satisfied. All kinds of ideologies, religions came into being. But they have failed to give what they promised about it. This failure for every honest and thinking man has opened a new era of seeking. And this era of seeking has to culminate into something substantial, has to give the light of reality to people and not just talking.
If you categorize the past enterprises of people into politics or into religion you can easily see the principle behind it was either money-oriented or power-oriented. All religions have been money-oriented. They use the name of great incarnations to make money. And people also very humbly accepted that, “We have to pay money to these people who are teaching us religion.”
The another side of all these religious bodies have been to give us a kind of a idea that they are very powerful. They make you fight with each other. These organizations have created soldiers out of you; militaries out of you. This has happened in the past and it is happening even today. We have to be very alert and understand that God does not want you to fight among yourselves. God has created only one world. Human beings are saying that, “We are this and we are that.”  They talk of peace and unity when there is no peace in their hearts. There are scandals and scandals coming out of these so called religions. Wars after wars you find they are fighting in the name of religion.

Today somebody asked me, that why should I come and talk to the Western people? I told him that in my mind there is nothing like East and West. The Western culture, the Western enterprises, endeavours are like the growth of a tree, but they do not know about their roots. When the tree grows and grows, without paying attention to its roots, without knowing from where do you get your nourishment, it would be totally destroyed one day. From the East you have to know about the roots. And East has benefited from your knowledge of science, of all this growth outward – why not the tree benefit from the knowledge of the roots?
This nourishment comes to us spontaneously from a happening that has to take place within us. That happening is not mental, it is not emotional, neither it is some sort of a physical acrobat. It is the inner awakening of a residual force within us, called Kundalini. This Kundalini is the reflection of the Holy Ghost – about which no priest can talk. She is the Primordial Mother, She is the Primordial Power, She is the power of Divine Love. And in a subtle form She exists in every atom and every molecule. We have never felt it before – but is described very clearly in so many scriptures that It is the Cool Breeze of the Holy Ghost. You have to feel the Cool Breeze oft the Holy Ghost, of the Pentecost, as they call it. Of the Pentecost. But the way people think Pentecost is, that to get possessed is the way it is Pentecost. When the disciples of Christ started talking about the centers and about the channels, they thought they were talking in some other language. So some people think, if they get possessed and start screaming and shouting, now they have got the blessings of the Holy Ghost. This is sheer madness. If you are blessed by the Holy Ghost, you will become much more aware, much more dynamic, much more compassionate. You have to become a blissful personality. And you have to become the witness – that you can see the whole drama very well. So it is a state which one has to achieve. It is not just a ritual of putting some water on your heads and saying, “You are baptized.” Actually when you are really baptized you get the Cool Breeze coming out of your fontanel bone area. So please do not identify yourself with all such false dramas that are played around, because it is not going to do you any good.
In these modern times scientifically we can say one thing, that it is the last breakthrough, is the epitome of our evolution, where you enter into that subtle power of knowledge, so that you feel on your fingertips the all-pervading Power. And you feel your own centers and the centers of others, in the new era of collective consciousness. This collective consciousness is an expanded awareness of your central nervous system. But talking about it one should not believe. One has to experience. One has to see for one self.
If it is the living process – how can you pay for it? The people who ask money for religion are really hungry wolves. This is a living process, which is something like a seed sprouting. What do we pay to the Mother Earth for giving us such beautiful fruits and such beautiful lush greenery? What efforts can we put in? It’s spontaneous, it works spontaneously. The Divine is anxious to reveal Itself to you, but you have to keep your minds open. And think of your benevolence and your own powers and your higher state which you can easily get. It’s all your own. Just like one candle which is enlightened can enlighten another candle which is ready. It just happens that way. Not by arguments, not by discussions – but by living force within us which has not yet come into play.
There have been lots of misunderstanding about Kundalini – specially in German language there have been very funny books, I know about them. That shows people have not gone thoroughly into it to find out the truth. Kundalini doesn’t trouble anyone, She is your Mother, She gives you birth, She takes all the trouble.
Now, the problem with our own understanding is that either we are too much conditioned, even by science, or we are identified with some falsehood. For this a simple example is that if you are holding on to say – some sort of a snake and there is no light – no use telling you about it. But when you have the light then you yourself will drop it. So when your Kundalini brings the light of your Spirit in your attention you become aware – fully aware, because now you know the absolute truth on your fingertips.

Now, you don’t have to have any effort, no money – but an open mind to see for yourself.
May God bless you!
Tomorrow I will again come and explain to you little more about how we get into diseases and into troubles. Now I would say, if you have any questions you can ask me, but ask relevant questions. There’s no need to be aggressive because I’ve not come here to take anything from you – but to give you something that is your own. If you do not want to have it I cannot force, it cannot be forced. It has to work out. Like the way Christ has described the parable that, “Some seeds fell on the rock, but some fell on the fertile land – and they became the trees.”
May God bless you!

shrimataji3.jpgThe Kundalini is the key to our spiritual evolution. The word “kundalini” actually comes from the Sanskrit “kundal” meaning “coiled up,” and we know in Sahaja Yoga that it is coiled up at the base of the spine in three and a half coils, in a dormant state, waiting to be awakened. See subtle system.

It is an energy which is present in every single human being, which also means that every human being has the potential for spiritual evolution.

It is situated at the base of the spine, in the sacrum bone. In Latin Os Sacrum refers to a sacred area of the body, and so there was an awareness of its significance a long time ago. The Greeks also knew that this was a special part of the body and called it Hieron Osteon. They were aware that the scarum bone is the last bone to be destroyed when burning a body.

The kundalini has been well known in India for many centuries and is described clearly in the Upanishads and other texts. Adi Shankaracharya, Guru Nanak and Gyaneshwara have written about it. In the bible it manifests as tongues of flames on the disciple’s heads. Lao Tse referred to the kundalini as the spirit of the valley.

In Sahaja Yoga we know the effect of kundalini awakening (which is also known as self-realisation) is a cool breeze on top of the head. In other words we can feel the kundalini on our finger tips.

When the kundalini rises for the first time there may be blockages in the chakras which interfere with its ascent. When this happens it pulsates at that point of the spine and can soemtimes be seen even with the eyes alone.

Here is an extract from a talk by the founder of Sahaja Yoga:

Today I told you about Kundalini, and that Kundalini is the Pure Desire within us, that manifests or is awakened to give us our self-realization. Means the desire is only fulfilled when you get your self-realization, otherwise it is not manifested – it is just dormant; it is still residual. It has created the whole universe, but until and unless you get self-realization, unless and until you become one with your spirit, you have not achieved the manifestation of this power, which will go on making you run and run and run, thinking that you have not yet achieved or you have not found out your meaning. It will be there, all the time, sleeping, but giving you a feeling of vacuum.

So this power must be made to manifest… Then, this power has got certain qualities. The first quality it has got, … means it goes against the gravity. It goes against the gravity. You see, a thing rises, it doesn’t go down, so a person who has to be aspiring by nature, if a person is not aspiring type the Kundalini doesn’t rise, because, like, you see that when food passes down our stomach it presses the sides of the intestines. By that these movements of going down takes place. You see my point?

So when the Kundalini starts, and starts pressing on the sides of the chakras, She creates a feeling of throwing it higher and higher so the chakra is bounced upward. All the heavy things, all go downward, but the Kundalini rises higher and higher and higher, because it is like fire. Fire never burns downward. It always burns upward. She looks also like fire, and She has the capacity of fire within Her. The fire has a capacity to purify, and to burn off whatever can be burnt off. It purifies the things which it cannot burn and burns all the things which are inflammable, which can be burnt out.

So, the quality of fire that exists in the Kundalini burns off whatever is useless, like in our house, we find all the useless things, and we take them in the garden and burn them, finished – once and for all they’re all finished. So when the Kundalini rises, She also burns off all useless things, all your useless desires, your useless ideas of action, all sorts of useless accumulation of feelings and egos, and every sort of a nonsensical thing that is in between. Everything is burnt off fast, because they can be burnt, they are not eternal, by nature. They are not eternal by nature. They are temporarily there. All that is temporary, She burns down, and that’s how She enlightens the Spirit, because Spirit cannot be burnt by anything.

But this burning is so beautiful that it burns off all that is bad, stagnating, all that is polluting, all that is a disease, and cools down the system.

It is very interesting to see how this power of fire becomes the cool breeze, but in the science also you find that electricity can give you hot breeze or cool breeze. You can transform from one to another, but there is no ultimate for these things, they are always reversible. Supposing something becomes a magnetism, you can always convert into electricity, electricity can always be converted into magnetism. But Kundalini’s such a thing that once she burns off everything that is there, that’s how you get heat, because she’s burning. But when she cools down and becomes cool then she’s not reversible. That’s why it is a living process. Living process is never reversible. All dead processes can be reversible, but anything that is reversible – now, supposing you are grown up – you can all become a little baby- whatever you may try- you may have any number of operations –you cannot become. Now you are grown up, now you are modern, over-developed. You may try anything to become a primitive person – you cannot. You just cannot, whatever you may try. That will be all very artificial. You may just feel that you have become primitive by wearing some sort of a dress, by feeling that, “oh now there’s no modernism in us, and now we have become very very subdued”, nothing of the kind. It is curable, but not reversible. But, it is a living process . So, Kundalini within us expedites the living process within us of our evolution.

So the power of Kundalini is to purify, she purifies us like fire. She doesn’t purify us like water, surprisingly, she doesn’t purify us like water. Now, water, what does the water do? Water never burns off anything, but it dissolves certain things. It can take in something within itself, see. It can contain some of the dirt within itself. Supposing you put a color in the water – it assumes the color. But Kundalini does not assume the color. She burns out. Do you follow my point? So, if you have anything wrong within you, she’ll burn it off , but she’ll not absorb – she’s pure. She cannot absorb those things into her that will pollute her. She cannot be polluted.

This quality of fire, say, for example, if you put gold in fire, silver in fire, you can purify it. The pure form comes in. That’s how you know. But if you put gold and fire in water, nothing will happen. At the most you can wash them from outside. But in and out you cannot do it. So outwardly you can do it with other things, but with Kundalini you do in and out. The face also looks beautiful, as if some glazing has taken place on the face, a new, bright face. It’s not sallow, neither it is horribly burning, nor is it pale and ugly-looking, but it becomes radiant. Radiance, that’s what Kundalini gives you. It looks also, as if a molten iron, you see, -have you seen molten iron? – pillar of – supposing you take a pillar of iron, and, and heat it, to a point where it starts showing, you see, copper, every color in it, copperish and all sorts of color you see, golden, copperish and all that, you see, like a furnace. But very silent, very silent, it works out.

Subtle System Once you have experienced your self-realisation through Sahaja Yoga, a new dimension of awareness is opened up to you. You are able to experience thoughtless awareness, or nirvichara samadhi, which is a state where you are perfectly alert, but are conscious without having to think. This is a truly liberating state, as our state prior to self-realisation is characterised by constant nagging thoughts and worries, or planning for the future.

Another area of awareness that becomes available to you in Sahaja Yoga is known as vibratory awareness, in which you become aware of the state of your subtle system, which is depicted in the diagram. Sensations on the fingertips, such as tingling or heat indicate a problem in an energy centre, whereas coolness is associated with an absence of problems in an energy centre, also known as a chakra. The colours shown in the hand in the diagram correspond to the colours of the energy centres, and in this way you are able to decode the sensations on the fingertips. For example, if the thumb (yellow) on the left hand tingles this indicates a problem with the swadisthan chakra on the left hand side (also shown as yellow in the diagram).

In Sahaja Yoga it is common to hear people talking about being left-sided or right-sided. What does this mean? If you look at the diagram you will notice that there are three channels. There is a blue channel which runs down a person’s left side (as we are facing the person in the diagram it naturally appears on the right-hand side) and is called the left side or in Sanskrit terms, the Ida Nadi, where Nadi means ‘channel.’ On the other side, on the right side of our body, is the right side, or Pingala Nadi. In the middle, running along the spinal chord is the Sushumna, or central channel.

What are the qualities of these three channels? The left channel is also known as the moon channel, and if we move too much into this channel then we can become depressed and in extreme cases, suicidal. It is also associated with feelings of hopelessness, dejection, fear and failure. Normally the colour of this channel is blue, but as we move more towards the left side, the colour becomes quite black. How do we know if we have moved into the left-side i.e. our left channel has become overactive? We can tell from our behaviour, as described above, but through Sahaja Yoga we can also detect this more subtly on our hands. If we feel more coolness on the right hand than the left, then this indicates that we have indulged too much into the left side of our consciousness.

The right channel, or the sun channel, is associated with feelings of elation, excitement, planning too much, being futuristic, dominating and aggressive. The colour of this channel is gold when it is in balance with the left side, but as a person moves more towards the right, the colour changes to yellow, orange and then red as the person becomes increasingly aggressive. The ideal state in Sahaja Yoga is to be in the centre, which means that we are are moving on the central channel, and that we are not too left-sided or too right-sided. In this state we are detached, enjoy being with others, and enjoy ourselves more too. This can be felt on the subtle level as coolness on both hands.

By attending a Sahaja Yoga centre near you, you can find out how to balance yourself on a subtle level.
