“Patanjali yoga shastra was written for the central people, for the real seekers .”- Shri Mataji (2.07.1984)


…..Patanjali yoga shastra was written for the central people, for the real seekers but people took out of Patanjali also what suited them is the physical exercise, I mean just imagine, it is like a person who has been invited to dinner is doing dish-washing, it’s that stupid. And that book, even today thank God, despite all the intellectuals attacks and all nonsenses, he does talk of the formless not of the form so much but he does say that you have to neutralise your effort, (some Sanskrit words) you have to neutralise your thought which are (Sanskrit words) and in the absence of that thought only the Kundalini will rise.    Now a vicious circle is created, even when we say we should not have any thought, we fight with that thought. I will not have any thought x2. So there is thought still there. How to get rid of this thought, is the problem. How to become nirvichara? Anybody that preaches a lot, talks a lot, is actually creating the thought in the mind but some may not. But mostly they do. So something has to happen that the thought must stop. And that is what happens in Sahaja Yoga. But it is all done by God Almighty within us, that he has made these beautiful chakras. They are made from different elements, the essence of different elements and all incarnations of our ascent are placed there to guide those subtle centres, is already within us, we may not know about it but they exist within us and ultimately the residual, they call it, the residual power, that is Kundalini; it is residual because it has created everything but has not manifested itself, is the pure desire to know the truth, pure desire to know the Divine, to become the Divine, is still sleeping.

     When these chakras are in proper shape she spontaneously rises just like a seed sprouts, you don’t have to do anything to reduce your efforts and your thoughts. …
