Shri Mataji about Sahaja Yoga

Self-realization

“The beauty of self realization lies in secretly working out within you everything that is virtuous, that is beautiful, that is joyful.” (1983 – May 12, Hampstead, UK)

Transformation

“And so we realize that human beings have to be transformed and have to enter into a higher state of awareness, through inner transformation. This has to be the last breakthrough of our evolution, which is a living process.” (13 September 1989: The International Situation, Sahaja Yoga talk in London, UK)

Шри Матаджи

 

Attention

“The attention is to be kept pure.  In Sahaja Yoga you know all the methods how the attention, one can keep it pure.  If the attention is not pure, then this desire will be always attacked by all petty, nonsensical things which have no meaning in your ascent.” (1982 – December 19 Lonavala, India)

Thoughtless Awareness (Meditation)

“How to do meditation, many people ask.  Don’t do anything, just go into thoughtless awareness.  Try to go to the thoughtless awareness.  If you can get into that condition of thoughtless awareness, you’ve done your job because that’s the point where you are with the truth, with the reality, with the joy, with everything that is so fundamental.” (2002 – Nov. 3 Advanced Program, Lake Piru, California)

“By meditation we develop that strength within us, so automatically we start solving the problem.” (1987- June 5, Sahaja Yoga Advanced Program, Sydney Australia)

Wisdom

“Wisdom you don’t get in colleges, schools, universities, nowhere. Where do you get it, the wisdom?  You get it through your spirit, which gives you a complete idea as to what is right and what is wrong.” (1994 – August 28, Cabella, Italy)

“Wisdom doesn’t mean that you know how to argue things or you fight with people.  No, it doesn’t mean that. Wisdom means how you take to the good side of everything to enjoy it.  This is wisdom and that you avoid all destructive things and take to something constructive.” (1992 – Sept. 13, Advanced Program,  Abbotsford, Canada)

Love and Joy

“If love is killed, joy is lost. You cannot have joy without love.” (1989 – May 6, Advanced Program, Sorento, Italy)

“What is your Self? Self is nothing but joy.  A joyous person is definitely a person who has got his Self expressing through his joy.  Such a person is so joy-giving, so humorous, and never degrading anyone.” (2002 – September 14,  Cabella, Italy)

Politics

“Politicians should be dedicated to the welfare of the people, but sometimes politics becomes like a game of chess, in which the sole aim is to stay on board as long as possible.” (“Meta Modern Era”)

Democracy

“Real democracy is only possible when people truly imbibe democratic principles and respect ethical values above everything else.” (“Meta Modern Era”)
