The reality, the truth is that this world is One


[Shri Mataji Nirmala Devi was the White Buffalo Calf Woman. This knowledge highlights the significance of the Chiefs and Members of the Gabrielino/Shoshone and Tongva Nations' choice of the sage plant as the gift presented to Shri Mataji Nirmala Devi in 1993.]

Violet writes:
"Re the appended quote you have in pending, i had just re-read on the GSM how the White Buffalo Calf Woman had given a branch of Sage Leaves to the indigenous people. And here you cite that the indigenous people are giving Shri Mataji a Sage Plant. It sent shivers up my spine, to say the least!"

Excerpt from:
WHITE BUFFALO CALF WOMAN
Brings The First Pipe

As told by: John Fire Lame Deer, in 1967

..."Early one morning the chief sent two of his young men to hunt for game. They went on foot, because at that time the Sioux didn't yet have horses. They searched everywhere but could find nothing. Seeing a high hill, they decided to climb it in order to look over the whole country. Halfway up, they saw something coming toward them from far off, but the figure was floating instead of walking. From this they knew that the person was wakan, holy.... This wakan stranger was Ptesan-Wi, White Buffalo Calf Woman. In her hands she carried a large bundle and a fan of sage leaves..."

[Shri Mataji Nirmala Devi's meeting with Chiefs and Members of the Gabrielino/Shoshone and Tongva Nations in 1993 has tremendous impact as we read Her powerful messages concerning such pressing world issues as land ownership, problems of racialism, violence, aggression, materialism, hatred, all desperate struggles that are as relevant today as in yesteryear.

In response to the Indigenous question, "How do we come together, so many dispersed peoples, now so few?" Shri Mataji Nirmala Devi, Incarnation of the Holy Ghost come to give Her children the gift of Second Birth, answers simply, "Hold out your hands, feel, easily you just get it. You are very close to God."]




Lakota Instructions for Living
(passed down from White Buffalo Calf Woman)

Friend do it this way - that is,
whatever you do in life,
do the very best you can
with both your heart and mind.

And if you do it that way,
the Power Of The Universe
will come to your assistance,
if your heart and mind are in Unity.

When one sits in the Hoop Of The People,
one must be responsible because
All of Creation is related.
And the hurt of one is the hurt of all.
And the honor of one is the honor of all.
And whatever we do affects everything in the universe.

If you do it that way - that is,
if you truly join your heart and mind
as One - whatever you ask for,
that's the Way It's Going To Be.

[Shri Mataji Nirmala Devi addresses difficult Indigenous issues:]

The Great Spiritual Leader and Founder of Sahaja Yoga, Shri Mataji Nirmala Devi Met with Chiefs and Members of the Gabrielino/Shoshone and Tongva Nations in 1993.

Notes taken by Geoff Godfrey, an English Sahaja Yogi who traveled with Shri Mataji on Her tour of 1993 to the USA.

GIVE BACK THE LAND TO THE RIGHTFUL OWNERS:

During Her 1993 tour, Shri Mataji met Native American Indians from the Gabrielino/Shoshone and Tongua Nations. She received gifts from both groups, which included a sage plant. This is used as a sacred healing and ceremonial plant of all native peoples. After this the meeting began. Shri Mataji recounted how when She first visited the Americas, She had asked to meet with indigenous peoples. She was shown museums where even there, the faces were white American faces, dressed up. "The bureaucracy has to be challenged," said Shri Mataji, looking directly at the guests, "the people in America are all immigrants. This is your land, you are the native peoples. The issue should be made global, brought to the notice of the United Nations."

In discussion Shri Mataji also said: "These invaders are cruel and aggressive," and posed a question. "Why did these immigrants from Europe leave their own country?" It was agreed by all present that the Europeans had come with the 'Bible and Gun' and 'Sword and Cross.' Shri Mataji was informed that the Europeans used Native Indians as slaves to build missions, forced them to work in such missions, and once freed, they were not entitled to any land. They had no rights, no title or deed. Shri Mataji suggested that land should be given to the native Americans, or immigrants will suffer more for their karmas.

CARETAKERS OF MOTHER EARTH:

The Indians explained their philosophy of being caretakers, using the land as their ancestors did. One such approach was to never take a decision until its impact on the land for the next seven generations was considered. "You are a very natural people," Shri Mataji continued. "Basically they (the immigrants) are racist. They are some sort of a dominating, aggressive people. The ego is so much! My attention is on you. There is so much land, I am sure something will happen. You should act, and say: 'We want justice, we want truth.' You should strike again and again. Their aggression has become subtler, cutting into the earth, destroying plants, the Amazon as well, everywhere."

It was explained to Shri Mataji how the Catholic church forced itself on native peoples. "Did you follow their religion?" Shri Mataji enquired. "No!" Was the resounding answer. "The Catholic Church is in trouble," said Shri Mataji and added, "people have no respect for Mother Earth. They are gross material people. You have to raise your voices, say to them: 'You are not spiritual people.' They`ve been ruling for 2000 years, with no principles, no precepts, not in their own lives, or in society. So you can say : ´You don`t understand us, you're not spiritual, you only understand materialism and money. For us other things are important. You have no respect for land or the atmosphere. They are just materialist, power and money oriented.' Just challenge them."

YOU ARE VERY CLOSE TO GOD:

"They don`t respect their own people, so how can they respect others?" One man indicated. "Our people were ten thousand strong two hundred years ago, now we are just three hundred." "You blatantly have to challenge them. Americans are not capable of feeling spirituality. If you can give Jews land in Palestine, promised in the Bible, what about you?" continued Shri Mataji. "In every way the suggestion must go, papers, news, letters! I think you people should start a movement of a very deep dimension. You have all My blessings and love. In India`s freedom struggle, we had no way out but non- violence. I`m all with you, all My powers. You are My mediums, the channels. Thousands in America have so much compassion, thousands in America have so much concern and thousands in America have so much guilt. They feel inside they have done something wrong. You just start, you'll get money, money is never a problem for a good cause." "How do we come together, so many dispersed peoples, now so few?" Shri Mataji was asked. "Hold out your hands, feel, easily you just get it . You are very close to God. You people are the best suited. Since you were sitting here, I was just enjoying. You are a very ancient people."

[Appended are stirring Indigenous quotes which coincide with topics Shri Mataji Nirmala Devi has also touched upon:]

LAND:

"This is your land, you are the native peoples."(Shri Mataji Nirmala Devi)http://sye-w.blogspot.com/search?q=Shoshoni+and+Shri+Mataji

"America never was their country. And they threw away all the other Red Indians, took away their land and very nicely they are governors of America. [..] Now if they are by nature violent, then also this conditioning of violence comes in. Then they start killing each other. They have killed ruthlessly so many people, thinking that they have a right to go into any country and kill everyone and take the land that is not their own. Actually, land doesn't belong to anybody as such."

Krishna Puja 16 August 1998 - Cabella Ligure (Italie)(Shri Mataji Nirmala Devi)




Some of our chiefs make the claim that the land belongs to us. It is not what the Great Spirit told me. He told me that the lands belong to Him, that no people owns the land; that I was not to forget to tell this to the white people when I met them in council.

Kanekuk - Kickapoo prophet

LOVE OF LAND:

The beauty of the trees, the softness of the air,
the fragrance of the grass speaks to me.
The summit of the mountain, the thunder of the sky,
The rhythm of the sea, speaks to me.
The faintness of the stars, the freshness of the morning,
the dewdrop on the flower, speaks to me.
The strength of the fire, the taste of salmon, the trail of the sun,
and the life that never goes away, they speak to me
And my heart soars.

Chief Dan George

CARETAKERS OF MOTHER EARTH:

The old Indian teaching was:
It is wrong to tear loose from its place on the earth
Anything that may be growing there.

It may be cut off,
But it should not be uprooted.
The trees and the grass have spirits.

Whenever one of such growths may be destroyed,
His act is done in sadness.
With a prayer for forgiveness,
Because of his necessities.

Wooden Leg, Cheyenne




FORGIVENESS, COMPASSION:

Grandfather,
I ask you to Bless the white man,
He needs your wisdom, your guidance.

He has tried for so long to destroy my people
And only feels comfortable when given power.

Bless them with wisdom.
Show them the peace we understand.

Teach them humility
For I feel they will destroy themselves and all our children
As they have done for so long with Mother Earth.

I plead, I cry.
After all
They are my brothers and sisters.

Sandy Kewenhaptewa, Hopi

YOU ARE VERY CLOSE TO GOD:

The Great Spirit is in all things;
He is in the air we breathe.
The Great Spirit is our Father,
But the earth is our mother.

She nourishes us;
That which we put into the ground
She returns to us...

Big Thunder, Wabanaki

AGGRESSION:

I think that wherever the Great Spirit places his people, they ought to be satisfied to remain, and thankful for what He has given them, and not drive others from the country He has given them because it happens to be better than theirs!

http://www.firstpeople.us/FP-Html-Wisdom/BlackHawk.html




AGGRESSION AND ITS RESULTS:

The ground on which we stand is sacred ground. It is the dust and blood of our ancestors. On these plains the Great White Father is Washington sent his soldiers armed with long knives and rifles to slay the Indian. Many of them sleep on yonder hill where Pahaska - White Chief of the Long Hair [General Custer] - so bravely fought and fell.

A few more passing suns will see us here no more, and our dust and bones will mingle with the same prairies. I see as in a vision the dying spark of our council fires, the ashes cold and white. I see no longer the curling smoke rising from our lodge poles. I hear no longer the songs of the women as they prepare the meal.

The antelope have gone; the buffalo wallows are empty. Only the wail of the coyote is heard. The white man's medicine is stronger than ours; his iron horse [the railroad] rushes over the buffalo trail. He talks to us through his "whispering spirit" [the telephone].

We are like birds with a broken wing. My heart is cold within me. My eyes are growing dim - I am old.

MATERIALISM:

They [The English] are truly industrious, and in general very honest and upright. But their close attention to business produces, I think, too much worldly-mindedness, and hence they forget to think enough about their souls and their God. Their motto seems to be "Money, money, get money, get rich, and be a gentleman," With this sentiment, they fly about in every direction, like a swarm of bees, in search of treasure that lies so near to their hearts.

SPIRITUALITY:

O' GREAT SPIRIT
help me always
to speak the truth quietly,
to listen with an open mind
when others speak,
and to remember the peace
that may be found in silence.

[Shri Mataji Nirmala Devi observes that, "They [Red Indians] were so, I think, spiritual people because they used to worship the Mother, Mother all the time they worship the Mother."]

"So we should also try to cherish our innocence and not to feel hurt because sometimes such people are cheated, dominated, everything happens, doesn't matter. They will all suffer who will dominate innocent people. And the whole world, you see, there is a big uproar about it, people are talking about it that there should not be domination of the innocent, simple people. It has happened but it will all, has to be changed, has to be brought to some last end otherwise people can not exist, like everywhere they went and oppressed so many people. In America, I was surprised to see that there were so many Red Indians, who are called as Indian Americans. They were all oppressed, oppressed so much that they had to run away to different places and then I went to this place, Canajoharie. I found the vibrations were so good. That means they were very innocent, simple people and Americans that time, who went there, tried to completely finish them. So they went and hid in places like Canajoharie but the Canajoharie has such tremendous vibrations that I said look at this, so many years have passed, still the people who live there or worked about and were absolutely enjoying this place were Red Indians, the ones who were Indians, we call them American Indians. But they are so simple and innocent and they were so, I think, spiritual people because they used to worship the Mother, Mother all the time they worship the Mother. Even I have seen in other countries it has happened, but I was happy to see that in Australia they are very secular. They have many Maoris and all those people and they encourage all of them and it's so surprising that they have so much talent and they are bringing them to this, this state to show that they are equal in their rights, political rights, in Australia. It's a very good venture."

Shri Ganesha Puja, September,25,1999, Cabella Italy (Shri Mataji Nirmala Devi)


[Once Turtle Island [America] was conquered after the annihilation of "so many Red Indians", Shri Mataji Nirmala Devi says that, although Americans then began turning to higher values such as freedom and justice, nonetheless "the ideas of self-destruction started working in them," because: "I would say that it is nothing but their Karmas working against them."

The importance of attaining Self-Realization/Second Birth:

While sharing the knowledge that "Shri Krishna is the ruler of America. He Himself was a dark person, Himself was on the black side, Shri Mataji Nirmala Devi also informs America that "the karmas of their past, the way they killed so many Red Indians will not be forgiven by Shri Krishna unless and until they take to Sahaja Yoga (spontaneous union with the Divine Power of love, the Second Birth/Baptism)]

"Shri Krishna is the One who said. 'I come on this Earth when there is demise of Dharma." [..]All His potent qualities were expressed when He came [to America] as Shri Krishna. [..]George Washington, Abraham Lincoln, they did not allow the nation to be drifted away to the ambition of gathering other countries. First the Spanish went there and later others followed. They conquered that country and settled down there, then that era was over for them. Then they started talking about freedom, of democracy, of higher values."

Shri Krishna Puja, August 15, 1993,Cabella, Italy
Shri Mataji Nirmala Devi


"But the Karmas of their past, the way they killed so many Red Indians will not be forgiven by Shri Krishna unless and until they take to Sahaja Yoga. Though they did not try to overpower their countries and spread their empire, though they always stood for justice, they tried to show, on the face, that they were for uniting the whole world, that they are against racialism, fundamentalism, some sort of idealism they propogated, but despite this, the ideas of self-destruction started working in them. I would say that it is nothing but their Karmas working against them."

Shri Adi Shakti Puja, June 26, 1994,Cabella, Ligure, Italy
Shri Mataji Nirmala Devi


[Racialism and Rationalization:]

"In these centuries, rationality at its height, worked through the medium of the white-skinned races who elaborated a linear area derived from rational thinking that all other skin colours were somehow not made by God, who, it was tacitly assumed, was certainly white and most probably Anglo-Saxon, and had bestowed a different colour upon other races as a kind of Divine punishment. This sort of ignorance may appear very funny to us, but armed with this special kind of rationality, or rather with the rationalisations of imperialism and colonialism, they actually killed thousands and even millions of people, plundering their land and making slaves of the population. As a result, one cannot find a single Red Indian in North America living freely and naturally in the traditional way, because they are all locked up in reservations "generously" given to them by the invaders. One has to go to the museum to see their pictures painted with the head dressed as of Red Indians but, strangely, with the faces of Anglo-Saxons."

(Shri Mataji Nirmala Devi - first small English book - Chap. 1 - Sahaja Yoga)
http://groups.yahoo.com/group/adishakti_sahaja_yoga/message/8258


[Shri Mataji Nirmala Devi discusses the role of ego and conditionings manifesting in such problems as racialism, violence, hatred, aggression found throughout the world. She also emphasizes the power of the witness state after achieving Self-Realization since: "Any person who is in that state, is the one who brings peace, he brings joy..."]

"It is a very important thing about the power of Shri Krishna that gives you a witness state. This is very important also because, in these days of Kali Yuga and complete confusion of value system, all kinds of turmoil make a very complex condition to exist.

The state of witnessing is only possible through meditation. You reach the state of thoughtless awareness. It is combined together. Now the witness state is such a state where you just do not react. If you react, then the problem starts. It's a very simple thing to understand that we react through our ego or through our conditioning. Otherwise there is no way to react....

All our problems of our conditioning are really horrible. For example, racialism... We have racialism. In America is very much more, you can feel it, though they don't say. But if you go from Italy, you feel it; if you go from India also you can feel it. Now why is this racialism there? What is the reason? Why do we react to this kind of horrible hatred for another community or another colour which is only skin-deep.

Now with rationality you might be able to explain: "O God, these people, they are absolutely useless", or "They have come to our country and are just troubling us." All these conditionings are there. But if you see, when they talk of immigrants, the Americans must know they are immigrants all of them. America never was their country. And they threw away all the other Red Indians, took away their land and very nicely they are governors of America.

But the reaction is: "Those who are not white-complexioned, they are all to be condemned, tortured. Now if they are by nature violent, then also this conditioning of violence comes in. Then they start killing each other. They have killed ruthlessly so many people, thinking that they have a right to go into any country and kill everyone and take the land that is not their own. Actually, land doesn't belong to anybody as such.

Yesterday was the Independence Day of India. And I have seen the flag going up, our national flag, and the British flag going down. All that has happened after so much of struggle, so much of sufferings of the people, because they came to India, landed nicely there, and became the masters.

So this is also a kind of a conditioning that comes in a collective way that you go into anybody's country, throw away the people from there to occupy that place, and become the masters. It's like going to somebody's house, that belongs to somebody, and throw away the people who are inside and nicely settle there as the owners and the masters. Because they have better intelligence perhaps, the cunning more in them. With that cunning, if the white people think they can rule the black people, is not where you can develop a witness state.

So this kind of conditioning is like a plague and moves from one country to another, where some people think they are superior and make people look inferior. And there are people also who accept this kind of a situation, accept this kind of a position, where they are supposed to be equal.

I would say, take the example of America, because this has been celebrated by Americans and because Krishna is the ruler of America. He Himself was a dark person, Himself was on the black side. And in the same country where He rules, another great thing is that they don't realise that, if all the black get out of that country now, I don't know what will happen to them!

All their sports are managed by the Blacks. If you want to see any American sport, 99% are black people. Then if you want to see the music, because these black people, though they have black colour - which is all right, as you are white, they have black colour - but they have a voice which the white people don't have. They can sing so well that no white people can compete with them. It's a full justice done to the colour.

Now if you take out all the Asians, all the doctors, all the nurses, all the architects, all the accountants, all of them will disappear. Now what will remain?

You have to understand that it is colour which has nothing to do with your intelligence, with your value system, with your Spirit. We are here to achieve our spirituality. The Spirit doesn't understand colour, because it is so superficial and it is so very cruel to condemn someone for the colour.

The same now is happening as a reaction. Every action has a reaction. So what happens is that you find the Blacks are reacting. They are reacting and their reaction can be very dangerous. Everyday I read the reactions are coming up. So badly! Not in America but all over, they are now thinking they must rise and oppose this domination.

But in their own countries, where they have people of different colours, a little variation I think, they are all black people but little variation maybe, so they form groups. And they start cutting each other's throats. I've seen on the television how ruthlessly they kill. I don't know what is the difference of colour is, but somehow they have formed groups and this group will go and kill that one and that group will come and kill this one.

It's not like Kauravas and Pandavas. It's not two types of people absolutely opposite, it's not that the negative and the positive is there, it's not. They are all negative, whether they are White or Black. And they start quarrelling and fighting with each other.

Now this violence is growing so much. I think violence is the only weapon they use now to express themselves. You see, here something happens, so somewhere there, you find they explode bombs and kill so many innocent people. It is very sinful to do that. Even the slightest violence is sinful and these kinds of violence in the eyes of Shri Krishna are absolutely to be punished very well.

Now this comes through ego. You think because you belong to one clan, another clan you can kill. Or something like that, a funny idea into human mind comes in and you decide that you have a right to kill another person. So one may say this comes from hatred, but hatred is an outcome of ego.

When the ego starts acting, it collects all these things like hatred, also possessiveness, anger, violence, all this starts coming out of the ego which actually blinds the person. You become blind to the fact that there is no need to have violence, no need to hate someone, no need to kill anyone because of this ego that is there.

Now one may say: "Mother, how does this ego build up?" Of course, mostly this is due to reactions, also it is due to the conditioning. If the child is told from the childhood that: "You should hate these people, they are to be hated, they are wrong people, they are bad people", they just start when they grow up, they start showing that hatred. And it is now like a cactus growing very big and is killing others. There is no justification for this kind of a behaviour by human beings. If they are human beings, they have to have human qualities and that is what is possible only if you learn how to just witness and not to react...

But witness state is not a mental state, it is a state of a spiritual ascent where you become a witness. The best way to practise witness state is not to criticise anyone. I've seen people who are all the time criticising others. They cannot criticise themselves, so they start criticising others, so much so that they don't even see what's wrong with them. They don't even see what wrong they have done to others, because they think they have a right to criticise others and they enjoy this criticism very much.

Actually there's nothing to be criticised. You just watch and see for yourself, that's all is your right. You have no right to criticise anyone or anything. But some people think that if you do not criticise, then it will go on like this and it will never stop. It's not that! Once you watch the thing yourself, only just watch.

Your attention itself is enlightened now. With that enlightened attention, you can just watch and stop the non-sense that is there. But we are always conscious that we are something great and we have to do this and we have to do that. Under these circumstances what happens is that you become another problem. Because what can you do? You can't do anything. But what you can do is to watch. By watching and by seeing things as they are, you really develop a very different state of being.

Firstly all such people who are just witnessing, what happen to them is very interesting, that their memory loss is much less, because whatever they see becomes like a picture to them, they can tell you even the colour, the folding, everything. Whatever they see is so much in their mind, like a photo and they can tell you exactly what they have seen. And your memory is not lost. While if you react onto everything, your memory becomes horrible...

But this is not the only loss we have. With this kind of people, when they are formed into a collective, they can be very dangerous people, because with that kind of a nature, they have to do something. They must do something because, after all, they are combined together for a purpose or for some reactions which all of them have built up. In small things, in big things you'll find people do like that. And some people who are very much developed in this kind of behaviour can collect lots of people and do any amount of harm to others.

I would take the picture of Hitler. For nine years this fellow was watching what wrongs Jews are doing. He wouldn't watch what Germans are doing, what wrong they are doing to the society. At that time the society also was very bad because they were having all kinds of licentiousness. He was noting down: "These Jews are like this, they do this, they take money, they are lending money", all kind of things he got into his head. As a result of that, he built up a reaction into him that: "We must, somehow or another, see that these people go away from Germany." But then he thought: "Even if they go away from Germany, they'll prosper again. So why not kill them?" It went to such an extent that you cannot see such films, you cannot see anything of that nature that Hitler did. But he did it.

And people who followed him also did it. Without feeling any hitch, as if it was a matter of great pleasure, or a joy, or maybe it's a duty. How could they get duty bound to such a horrible thing like killing thousands and thousands of Jews? What Jews had done to them? They could have corrected it. But why did they indulge into such violence? And they wanted to finish all the Jews of the world. It can be very very dangerous, because once you start losing your witness state, you can fall into negative collectivity. And thus this negative collectivity acts in such a bad manner that all the conflicts of the world, all the problems of the world perhaps are related with this.

So as Sahaja yogis what should we do? We should not react. If you see something wrong, all right, you meditate on that, you meditate. If you find anything wrong happening, all right meditate on that. If somebody is unkind to you, at that moment do not react! Afterwards when that person is quieter, you tell him or tell her, because at that time if you tell, nothing will happen.

Gradually, I don't say always you can win over such people, but gradually you may be able to make them understand that it is wrong. It's wrong to do things which they have been doing. In a way, you see, the reaction to anything which is stupid also can be very self-destroying...

So this power of witnessing, you all should develop. Try to develop it, that when you are reacting, stop reaction, about everything. You'll be amazed, you will find yourself a very very powerful person, in the sense you'll have no ambitions, you'll have no desires, you'll have no special fondness or anything. But, just you'll be witnessing the drama...

After some time, you'll be amazed, your witness state will increase, and when in the collective all of you have that witness state, you can do wonders without doing anything, without saying anything, without acting. Only your presence itself can work it out. I don't say that it will have effect on everyone, no I can't say, but most of the people. Any person who is in that state, is the one who brings peace, he brings joy...

In Shri Krishna's life, the greatest power He had was that He was a witnessing personality. Without doing anything, without taking a sword in His hand, without talking about fighting, He is the one who has helped Pandavas to win the war. Not only, but through His Gita, He has tried to tell us what we have to do to win the war over evil..."

Shri Krishna Puja, 16 August 1998
Cabella Ligure (Italie)(Shri Mataji Nirmala Devi)


"There are many people even today who believe that they belong to a higher race and that they can destroy all the rest of the people because they don't belong to that race or maybe that religion. All such fixed ideas constitute a grave threat to peace in any country and indeed to global peace.

For example, the Muslims believe in a formless God. It is a religion which teaches absolute detachment from worldly things. But what are they doing? They are fighting for a piece of land here and there, and troubling everyone and torturing so many. They themselves are also being tortured. They call this Jihad and they believe quite stupidly that by getting killed in a Jihad, they will get their resurrection.

All these fixed ideas can be neutralised only through Self-Realization, because through Self-Realization one knows the reality. The reality, the truth is that this world is One, that nothing belongs to anyone in particular, and that there is no need to fight for any territory or for land whatsoever.

Of course, for protection from aggressive nations, people should form boundaries around their country and try to protect themselves. It would be unwise to ignore the fact that there are so many aggressive people who are trying to destroy the peace of the world. We must be vigilant against them. But that is no reason for promoting quarrels and fights everywhere.

Shri Mataji Nirmala Devi, book 'Meta Modern Era', Chapter 8, World
Peace, 29/09/95


"We have had enough of fights, we have had enough of nonsense. See now what's happening is this: the Israelis are killing the P.L.O.s and all this. Do you think by killing them, are you going to achieve God? These false ideas all have to go. We have to become universal beings--'become'--we have to 'become' that. Whether somebody's a Muslim or a Hindu or Christian or anything, when you become a universal being, you can feel the person where he is on your fingers.

Christ has said your hands will speak, 'your hands will speak'. We don't have to challenge any scriptures, we have to see the inner light in all what is described. [That] which is making us separated is actually the uniting factors.

The diversity has such a beautiful unity within us, but that only can be seen by the raising of the Kundalini. There's no way out, because when the Kundalini rises the integration takes place and you start seeing it as an actual experience.

I hope you have understood what I am saying. But arguments are not going to give you realisation. It has to happen. It doesn't matter, you may be the crown prince or you may be the king or you may be anything, makes no difference. It's your individual happening that has to take place. This is your individual mother within you, this is the Ruh I am talking about. Just by ritualism you cannot achieve God. You have to be connected with God. For all the people of the world who understand and who came, it is important to know that there must be a truth which we can actualise. It has been promised in all the religions and scriptures and it has to happen..."

Shri Mataji Nirmala Devi, 'Confusion the Subtle Slavery'
Dr. Johnson's House,Birmingham, England, 09/07/82


"Even Muhammad Sahib has said that at the Time of Resurrection your hands will speak. Exactly this happens that when you get your Realization, when the Kundalini comes up, and She touches the seat of God here. Immediately in your heart the reflection of God starts emitting cool vibrations from your hands also. When it starts happening you are amazed that all around you feel the subtle Power of God, the Power of His Love, what we call the All-Pervading Brahma, what we call the Chaitanya."
