…….‘We are going to work out Sahaja Yoga*, not for ourselves, but for the betterment of humanity.’ We need it, we need it very much. Your compassion, your love, is all being wasted if you just think about yourself, your family – what’s the use? People do that even before Realization. So what is the use of completely getting attached to your families, attached to all other things? You should get attached to the whole world! You belong to the whole world now, you are no more individualistic. No more!……….
So it is important to see that you change your temperament. If you try to show off, nobody is going to be impressed by you. If you think you are something very great, nobody is going to look at you. Be very humble, kind, generous – also very joyous person. Now imagine a Sahaja Yogi going in a group and telling them, “See, my mother is sick, my father is dying and this thing is happening, but I am doing Sahaja Yoga.” So people will say, “Why do you do Sahaja Yoga then? You go and cry and weep and sit down there!” If he’s really doing the Sahaja Yoga, no sickness can come, no trouble can come. It is a fact. Try to understand. It’s you who will lead these people who are supposed to be there, they will rise. But no use having identification with people who are not Sahaja Yogis. They may be your relations, they may be anything. No use, because you are at a different level, they are at a different level. Either try to raise their level, or have nothing to do with them, because they will pull you down. They will not see your height, they have no eyes to see, they have no ear to hear, and they have no feelings of any kind. If they have seen how you are changed, how your life is changed, they would have gone absolutely head-long into Sahaja Yoga. But if they are not, that’s not your job. You shouldn’t bother about them. If they come to Sahaja Yoga, well and good, otherwise they are no your relations. In no way they are related to you. How will you relate Sahaja Yoga to them? How will you explain anything to them? It’s going to be impossible to talk to these people.
So what I have to tell you today is that our family which is Sahaja Yoga, is large, it’s spread in 86 countries, and it’s doing very well. But what we have to see – that you do belong to that ocean, to the great families of Sahaja Yoga. But it is for you to increase the size of this. You have to increase, you have to talk about it, and you have to change people. This is your responsibility. You were not given Sahaja Yoga just for nothing, you have to produce greater Sahaja Yogis, better Sahaja Yogis; and you yourself meditate, not only meditate but also attend all the collective programs as far as possible.….
And I want you to have that Shuddha Iccha which is the Kundalini, (Applause) want you to have that Shuddha Iccha that is the pure desire, not only to become Sahaja Yogis but to create more Sahaja Yogis. That is actually your pure desire. You may not have recognized it, but unless and until you fulfill that desire, you can never be a good Sahaja Yogi. It’s to spread Sahaja Yoga in every level in everywhere, in every one – that you can do it. And it will spread very well, and so many people can be saved. So many people who are just lost in the maya of stupidity will be back on the right path. How much good you are going to do for them you just think. If Me alone has brought so many Sahaja Yogis, why can’t you also try and get more Sahaja Yogis? This world needs Sahaja Yoga. The whole problem – whenever I see newspaper, I think, ‘Oh God, if these people were Sahaja Yogis, there would have been no problem’. ……..
