Advice on (not) watching the Eclipse
"A pregnant woman should never see the eclipse of the sun or the moon, because if they see the sun eclipse, they’ll have physical problems. The children will be born with hands like this, feet like that. And if they see the lunar eclipse, the moon’s eclipse, then they will have mental problems."
(Talk at Le Raincy, France, 17/8/87)
"The handicapped children are mostly created because the mothers do not know what is to be done during pregnancy. Say, if you see an eclipse during pregnancy you will get a handicapped child. If you see a setting sun during pregnancy for long period of times, then you will get children whose eyes that are very weak. ..."
(Public Program, Rome, Italy, 29/4/82)
"Now one has to realize that you have to become subtler. Then again the question, “How to become?” How to become subtler is the problem. For example, today, there was a question of having a puja in the morning time – today. They said that there is a Suryagrahana, means the eclipse of the sun and if today is such a great date, that if you do the worship or the puja you get blessings of thousands of such pujas on an eclipse day of the sun. Now, if you look at it, it looks very fine, good, yes it’s true, it is written in the astrological survey and all that - is a very great thing, and we start following it. You being Sahaja yogis, you must attack it from a subtler point. That is how your wisdom will also become subtler; your attitude also will become subtler. To attack such a question from subtle point of view, we have to first of all know that we are Sahaja yogis. No technique is needed, just see your vibrations on this question, to begin with - it’s very simple. Subtler things are the simpler things; gross things are complicated - it is very simple, very simple equation. Simple thing is to feel the vibrations on this point – whether today’s puja, is it really worth something or not. You’ll be amazed that your right side will become hot on this point."
(Talk: 'Open your Heart', Lonavala, India, 25/1/82)
"You saw the eclipse? No. That’s good. The moon was under eclipse, you see, when we were coming. And I gave, was giving it a bandhan. When the eclipse was over then only we reached here. Thank God. And you didn’t see it. I’m very happy."
(Talk at Ram Das Temple, Satara, India, 30/12/82)

inner peace. It has helped me in finding inner peace. It has also given me an
incredible sense of love for everything and everyone. Prior to my self realization,
strangers were simply strangers to me. Now I feel love for actual strangers - they're
like brothers and sisters to me. This love comes from the inside (one of the beautiful
things which happens when you start to clear your heart chakra and it becomes
enlightened). I never thought this could be possible but it is.
I've become aware of so many things. Prior to my self realization, I use to drink
alcohol and swear quite a bit. Right after my self realization I completely stopped
drinking and swearing. I realized it was wrong and I had no desire to drink or swear
whatsoever. This awareness all came from the inside and it improved over time
meditation I used to be quite attached to material possessions and money. I still am
a little bit but not like before - I've become aware of how meaningless these things
are. The thing is you don't realize how meaningless these things are until after you
get your self realization and start meditating.
my self realization I would describe my energy levels as poor. I was always a laid
back and mellow person. I'm still a laid back person but have a great deal more
energy. How does a person get more energy through meditation? What happens
after you get your self realization is that when you meditate the kundalini rises. The
kundalini energy clears the blockages you have in your chakras. Chakras are
energy centres which spin in a clockwise rotation. The cleaner your chakras, the
faster they will spin and the more energy your chakras will provide to your body and
I feel much more energetic today. I also have much better mental clarity. I can
remember things better and perform mental tasks much better.
the inside out of nothing - for no reason whatsoever. It's difficult to describe these
experiences but I'll attempt to. It's a pure bliss and so beautiful that its difficult to
describe in words. It's a high - you're just so full of joy and energy it's incredible.
self-realization I would describe myself as introverted and somewhat shy. Nothing
extreme but definately on the introverted side. One particular area I always had
trouble with was public speaking. I always had a great fear of public speaking and
would try to avoid these situations at all costs.
through these presentations I would drink alcohol prior to the presentation. I would
usually drink about a half litre of wine about an hour prior to my presentation. This
was just enough to give me the confidence I needed as well as not too much so
nobody would notice I had been drinking. After my self-realization I began to
develop confidence and security - this is one of the beautiful things which happens
to you once you begin to clear your heart chakra and it becomes enlightened - you
become confident and fearless. Alcohol is never a part of my life now and when I do
presentations now I am completely confident.
need blind faith. Everything you learn in Sahaja Yoga you will experience. You will
experience the truth
available and possible for everyone. I'm just a regular guy who's made a lot of
mistakes and errors in my life. I view my life now in two stages - my life prior to
Sahaja Yoga - regular, completely unaware - and my life after Sahaja Yoga - full of
peace, awareness, love and JOY - my second birth - my enlightenment! Thank You

My Experience In Sahaja Yoga
The way my life has changed
|Hello, I’m Olga.I come from Tambov, Russia,though I live in Belgium now with my husbund Stefan and our four children.|
I was still in Russia, when I came across Sahaja Yoga. Me and my mother went to spend a holiday in a beautiful resort city in the Nothern Caucases, Piatigorsk. My mother, who had been practising Sahaja Yoga for one year than, suggested to go once to a programme of Sahaja Yoga, that took place in the neighbouring city Jzelieznovodsk. That was the place where she had learnt about Sahaja Yoga one year before the event I’m writing about.As I was interested in all kinds of spiritual teachings, I agreed with pleasure.
So we went. Sergey, who was leading the programme, thought that my mother had already explained everything about Sahaja Yoga to me, so we had a meditation, and then we sang some bhajans – we did everything the way as if I was aware of what I was doing. But I just wasn’t! Sergey asked me at the end of the programme how I felt. I felt very good! My whole being was filled with joy and contentment.
Soon we had to leave for Tambov. There were no sahaja yogis in Tambov at that moment, except for my mother and my sister. They went on practicing Sahaja Yoga, while I completely let it out of my attention.
Once I went to see my friends at their place. Since they were having a drink,I was served a glass of an alcoholic drink I used to like. To my greatest surprise, this time I didn’t like neither the smell, nor the taste of the drink. More over, I was so disgusted, that I couldn’t finish the glass. That was the last time I’ve drunk alcohol. That happend in November 1994 ,more than seven years ago. At that moment I didn’t see the connection between my Selfrealization and being disgusted by alcohol. But little later I met many other sahaja yogis, who had similar experiences. It is known in Sahaja Yoga, that after one gets his Selfrealization, one’s destructive habits (drugs, alcohol, smoking, etc...) fall off.
That was just a small example of how much my life has changed for the better after I started practising Sahaja Yoga. The other positive changes are:

Through your tongue, when you speak, one can make out whether you are in the realm of the ego or superego. She expresses, she decides. But if you understand her, then you know how to handle her. She’s your friend and Saraswati herself resides in your tongue. If you know how to handle your tongue then Sahaja Yoga can rise really higher. Because when others meet you, as Sahaja Yogis, they also see how the way you talk, the way you eat, the way that things are palatable to you. It is the tongue that decides.
If you are really very much evolved, you’ll be amazed that if you eat some food that, immediately the tongue will throw it out. It won’t have it, if it is something wrong. If some prasad, so called, is given to you, which is given by some wrong kind of man, immediately your tongue will throw it out. It won’t be able to take it in. And even if you take some of the food down in the stomach, still the tongue will inform the brain that throw it out, and the brain will inform the stomach that throw it out. It will be unpalatable. So the action of Vishnu in the stomach up to the action of Shri Krishna, who is the same personality, is all just by your tongue.
You must know how pure, holy, your tongue should be. That when you take the name of your Mother with this tongue, you must know it has to be the holiest of holiest. It is very important how you use your tongue. Those who talk very bluntly are just the same as those who talk very sweetly, to get something out of you is the intention. As I have told you, it controls the ego and superego. Even if Sahaja Yogis understand that the witness is also here, at the Vishuddhi chakra. So your witnessing powers will increase and decrease according to your tongue.
Of course it controls sixteen sub-plexus. It also controls the muscles of the eyes. It controls all these muscles, it controls the palate, it controls the teeth. It controls the ears. But here, you hear something you cannot control it. Tongue you can, because that is the thing which releases, which goes out. With the ear you cannot give anything to others. That is just one way. This is double way thing, you can take in something and also can throw out. It has a double purpose, it is a very important organ. And that’s why we have to look after our tongue.

Question: You talk about our habits and weakness and how to overcome that. Can You talk a little bit more about it?
Shri Mataji: See, we are weak because we are ignorant first of all. As I told you, we are holding the snake and there’s darkness and in that darkness we don’t see that this is going to bite us. But, when you become enlightened, you become a very powerful, dynamic person, absolutely. And you separate yourself from your habits. You see it very clearly. Then you don’t talk that “I have this habit or that habit.” You don’t say like that.
Like a person would come and say, “Mother, you know, my Agnya is catching; this chakra is catching. That means I have too much ego.”
But they don’t say, “I have ego.” I mean if you tell somebody, “You have ego,” they’ll hit you hard, isn’t it? But if a person gets it, he feels it. And he says, “Mother, I have too much problem with the Agnya Chakra so please clear it up.”
So, if you have any habits – say supposing there are people who used to take drugs. In the beginning I had horrible people in England, about seven of them, all drug addicts and things. Of course, very well-educated, professors and things, but all drug addicts, hippies and violent people, really. When they came to Me, it was not easy to handle them. But they are today the foundation of Sahaja Yoga. Wonderful people they are. Now what happened, they said, “We want to get rid of it but we can’t. We just can’t help it.”
But you will be amazed, overnight they gave up, overnight. Just it happens because you see the light and you throw the snake, just happens. You don’t have to think about it, just happens. I never tell them these Ten Commandments – don’t do this, don’t do that. Don’t tell them. Just it works from within. Why should I tell them? Why should I give them a lecture? There’s no need. They themselves become their own master and the mastery is that the master cures and gives you powers. You develop that dignity; it’s remarkable what happens. To Me, it’s not a surprise because I know what you are. You are so glorious.
It’s like you take a small little, say a television to a remote corner of India and in some village and show them and say that “Here is a place, this box will show you all the kinds of music and all kinds of dramas and this.”
They say, “What? This box? How is it going to work out?”
And, you put it to the mains and it starts working and they say, “It’s fantastic.”
It’s like that. We are fantastic, we are glorious but we have yet to be connected, that’s all. It just happens, you don’t have to force yourself, you don’t have to do anything. It just works. The inner force works it out.

Devi means Godess- Mataji Nirmaladevi is the Godess- Mahalaxmi, Mahasaraswati and Mahakali all in one. The divine mother protects each of her child.
Kavach means a sort of protection. As Helmet is the protection for head while driving something of that sort, or something of the sort of bullet proof jacket worn by you.
Devi kavach - means the protection offered by the Divine Mother herself. When you surrender to the God, then you are in the
In Sahajayoga taking Bandhan is as good as availing benefit of Devi Kavach. Mataji has urged upon us all to take Bandhan all time, when you go out of home, when you are traveling, go for important work and such important things. It saves you from external forces. Mataji takes care of you; you are safeguarded by the divine power of deity- Mahamaya, Adishakti- Mataji Nirmaladevi.
Personal Experience - I submit this personal experience of mine which happened just yesterday. I was out of my home to bring back my son from his friend’s residence. Before going out of home, my inner voice was asking me take bandhan . It had never happened before. I was wondering why i am getting these kinds of signals.
I decided to follow my inner voice. I acted as per advice of awakened Kundalini. I just sat in front of photograph of Mataji Nirmaladevi, prayed her for a while and took bandhan. I was assured in mind that my journey would now be safe. To tell you the fact- While returning home from the residence of my son's friend, on road there was heavy traffic, it was evening time, and suddenly some car came very fast from the back and almost dashed me in front of my scooter. My son was on back side of my two-wheeler. It was a sudden accident or attack on me from external forces, totally unknown to me. But I am happy to declare that with the grace, blessings, security offered by Bandhan, by the power of Devi- Adishakti-, Nirmaladevi I escaped unhurt.
But for some time I had fear in my mind, my heart beat has risen etc. However Mataji has saved me and my son from a very grave situation. I acknowledge with thanks the power of Devi Kavach. The Power of Bandhans. The supporting and guiding and care-taking Mother of us all- Mataji Nirmaladevi.
Jai Shri Mataji.

Shri Mataji: I was telling you there is a liver problem. Are you going in for a liver treatment? And you should go on a diet. No fats, nothing, just a regular diet for liver and do that for a month. You see? Go for a liver treatment completely. [unclear] Now, liver diet is the best.

You must see because Psoriasis, now people might think Psoriasis is active liver or inactive liver. You see it comes to that point. We have only two types, active or inactive. Now whether psoriasis is inactive or active we will know from one point that when the liver is inactive, you get the allergies and when it is active, you get other problems like nausea and also get biliousness. You don’t eat much, you thin down all these problems are there.

(Rahuri Q&A 13/1/1986)
“Most allergies are caused from cold to hot, ie. taking bath in cold water and then hot water. To take coffee and then immediately take cold water. This sudden change, the system cannot adjust to. In the left Nabhi area is the spleen. The spleen is a speedometer and also an adjuster. When it adjusts and it is not properly done due to sudden change, it causes problem. So it has to suddenly provide its energies to either increase or decrease the flow of the red blood corpuscles. That’s how the spleen goes crazy.”

How Much Should One Meditate?
--1986-0906,Ganesha Puja, California-USA

Research on benefits of Sahaja yoga in agriculture has been performed by Maharana Pratap Agriculture & Tech University, Udaipur. Senior research scientists have successfully proved that by using seeds invigorated through vibrations, usage of vibrated water for irrigation and other Sahaja yoga methods, the plant quality & food production has been much higher than the normal yield
Extensive research is also being undertaken by co-operative milk producers and the university to explore the possibility of utilizing the benefits of Sahaja yoga, for increasing milk production.
Bhogpur Village: an agricultural island of excellence
Near the holy city of Haridwar, in Bhogpur village, a Sahaja yogi has been using the grace of Shri Mataji to continuously produce extraordinary agricultural output through simple Sahaja yoga methods. In fact, the whole village has adopted his methods and has become quite popular in surrounding areas for its high food grain productivity. The vegetable and cattle feed size and quality is also much higher than that in surrounding villages. The effects have also been extended by its initiator, Jagpal Singh, in dairy sector, as a result of which the quality and quantity of milk of the dairy has shown very high improvements. This has also resulted in the dairy being awarded for having Highest Purity and Quality in the whole district.
In Sahaja Yoga, you take the ordinary seeds and you vibrate them. If you vibrate them, then what happens that you start getting seeds which are even better than hybrid. I tried an experiment with a sunflower; so I developed a sunflower about 2 kilo weight, about one foot diameter and such big, big seeds, that you can’t make them out to be sunflower seeds, so the collective was so amazed at it and they felt that this kind of seed will solve all of our oil problem.
(Shri Ganesha Puja, Madrid, Spain, 6/11/87)
Material development is much faster and in balance when you get Self Realization. These vibrations help agriculture very much. We have a scientist, Dr. Hamid, in Austria, who has experimented with vibrations and has found out that even non-hybrid seeds give you greater than hybrid seeds. In my own field I sowed about 60 kilos of rice in one acre of land. And they told me: “It’s a special rice. It won’t grow here.” But it turned out to be 1700 kilos. One of the best rices. And even the sunflower was so big, two feet diameter. You could not lift; one person could not lift. Giving oil six to ten times more!
(Press Conference, Sofia, Bulgaria, 25/7/90)
If people are saintly they will be always protected by Mother Earth. She will always try to give them whatever they want. You can see in the minute way, that supposing now, in our Cabella here, the roses are of such a big size, such a big size roses, you won’t find such big size in the whole world but we have here, such big ones. In Pratisthan we had flowers of sunflower so big as that. One man could not lift it. Now, how is it all this is happening in particular places? It is the Mother Earth who knows who is living here, who is walking on Her back we should say, or on Her soil, because Mother Earth understands vibrations.
(Shri Adi Shakti Puja, Cabella, Italy, 25/5/97)

Let this Diwali enlighten you with light of love. You yourself are the lamps which burn high and don't get pressed by the cover. They become much more powerful than the cover. It is their own asset. When they are hit upon, they are disturbed and distinguished.
Why are our lamps disturbed? You should think it over. Is there no transparent sheath around them? Have your forgotten your Mother's love and therefore you are so disturbed? As the glass protects the lamp, in the same way my love will protect you. But the glass should be kept clean. How can I explain? Have I to say like Shri Krishna 'Leave all religions and surrender to me' or as Shri Jesus 'I am the way, I am the door'. I want to tell you that I am that destination. But will you people accept it? Will this fact go to your hearts? Although what I say is distorted, the truth will always bstand. You cannot changed what it is. Only you will remain ignorant and backward. I am unhappy because of that.
Diwali is the day of real aspirations. Invole the whole universe. Many lamps have to be lit, and looked after. Add the oil of love, Kundalini is the wick and awaken the Kundalini of others with light of the spirit within you. This flame of Kundalini will be kindled and one within you will become the torch. Torch is not extinguished. Then there will be spotless sheath of my love. It will neither have any limits or any end. I will be watching you.
My love for you is showering as many, many blessings.
Yours always loving NIRMALA.
