reflection of Adi Shakti within you is the Kundalini.
Whatever is created on this Universe and in many Universes,
is the work of the Adi Shakti. Now many people believe that
there is one God—it's true, there's one God—God Almighty.
But He has His own powers which Hecan embody into someone
and can get His own manifestation expressed. So first of
all He created the power of Adi Shakti. When it was created,
then there was a sound, the sound that we call as OM — logos
or anything you call it; the primordial sound — and these
three powers came out of that sound, is aa, oo and ma [a, u,
m]— om [aum]. The Adi Shakti is the one who embodies the
desire of God Almighty. The desire of God Almighty comes out
of His compassion and for His own expression, for His own
manifestation, for His own reflection. I would say that He
must be tired of loneliness so He must have thought of
creating a [power] who will manifest His desires.
Thus, the power of God Almighty separated from Him and
formed an embodiment of His compassion, His desire to
create. They say in Sanskrit Chitvilas, the enjoyment of the
Adi Shakti. Chit is attention. The attention has its own joy
and to manifest that joy of our attention, She created all
the universes, She created this Mother Earth, She created
all this nature, She created all the animals, She created
all the human beings and She created all the Sahaja Yogis.
This is how the whole creation has worked out.
this juncture, one may ask that"Why did She not straight
forward create human beings?”That was the idea of God
Almighty, just to create human beings. But Adi Shakti, being
The Mother, She had Her own way of expression. She thought
She must create the mirrors for God Almighty to see His
face, to see His image, to see His character and that's how
this long range of evolution took place. This evolution had
to work out this way because they had to know from where
they come. We must know that we come from nature. Even
nature should know it comes from The Mother Earth, and
Mother Earth herself has her own Kundalini—and she too is
not just a dead earth, but she knows, she thinks, she
understands and she regulates. You can see in the nature how
every tree has got its own limitations, how every fruit is
produced in a particular tree — how it happens? what works
out this kind of regulation? If this Mother Earth was moving
with a higher speed than what it is today, we would not have
been born even. If it would have been less speed, it would
not have worked out. See the whole plan that was made — it
is a beautiful plan that The Mother Earth has to move around
the sun in such a manner that different seasons are created,
that's why the power (the Parama Chaitanya, which is the
power of the Adi Shakti) is also called as Ritambara Pragnya.
This is the power that does all the living work, all the
organization, all the creation.
our human ego we start thinking that we do something, we can
create. We cannot even create a dust particle, leave alone
anything else. We may combine, we can put together and
create something. But if you see that this whole thing is
nothing but beyond any power — we cannot create anything.
But what do we create is our myths, I should say. For
example, something is made of gold, still it is gold. Now,
something is made of wood, whatever it is made — is wood,
the principle is the same into everything.
whatever may be your birth, whatever may be the country you
are born, whatever may be your culture — you are human
beings, basically you all are the same — you laugh the same,
you smile the same, also you cry the same way. I haven't
seen anybody crying with his hands and tears falling out of
his fingers — do they? And, that is how one has to realize
that we are all bound by some common principle of life — and
the common principle of life, that has bound us by the Adi
Shakti, is that we all have Kundalini within us. All the
human beings have Kundalini within us. It is not, it is in
the animals also but it's not so developed, it's not yet,
what you call is a full form of Kundalini that can be
awakened. But in the human form only, it has evolved as a
connection, as the one that is the Divine Force within us,
which is the reflection of the Adi Kundalini, which is so
easily awakened in this Kali Yuga. This is the common
principle we all have. So we have to respect all the people
— all the human beings, whatever nation they come from,
whatever country they belong, whatever colour they have —
because they all have their Kundalini. Then there are
people, as you people are, who are awakened people, who are
enlightened people, who have got your realization. So, when
you understand that this is the enjoyment of the attention
of the Adi Ma, of the Primordial Mother, it's just the play
and an enjoyment.
Then, when you have achieved your full growth in
spirituality what should happen to you? What should we feel?
How do we then exist? This is the question many a times you
have asked. I have told you in the beginning that God felt
lonely and that's why He created this Adi Shakti and through
Her the whole universe was created. But also true that as
you are seeking also the Divine is seeking you. Also that
your seeking is absolutely awarded if you understand the
simple thing about Divine. That it is the one that has given
you intelligence. It is the one that has given you wisdom,
it is the one which has given you whatever you have — as you
were singing," whatever we have is given by You.”If that is
the case, that all that you have is given by your Kundalini,
by this Mother power of your Kundalini, then it's very
important to understand what is the need of keeping Her
happy and Her satisfaction. You must try to see what makes
Her happy. As I said, there's a relationship between the
realized souls and the Divine. The Divine is happy when you
are happy. Or we can say when the Divine makes you happy and
you are happy, then the Divine is happy. It's such a
relationship and it's so close, it's so close, we can say as
the sun has sun's rays, or the moon has its own moonlight.
It is so close, it's so in-grained, so much built-in and
that should give you full control over yourself and over
your development. They describe it in various ways, that you
one surrenders, of course with fear, if somebody comes with
a sword and says alright," you surrender", you may . But, as
soon as that person will disappear, he will take out another
sword and cut his throat. That surrender has no meaning.
That surrender is a surrender which is just forced onto you.
All such surrenders have been creating problems because it
has a reaction. But your surrender to Divine is extremely
joy-giving. Like salt, which dissolves into the sea,
automatically, into the water. That soluble nature is really
joy-giving. If you can just feel that, within yourself, you
are one with the Divine, you are dissolved with the ocean of
the Divine. And then, what takes your form is nothing but
extreme love, compassion and as a result, extreme joy.
Shakti's power, this Divine, is described in every religion.
In Islam called Ruh; in the Bible it's called as
All-pervading Power; it is called as Allak, that which
cannot be seen; Niranjana, the one which is beyond any
attachments, sort of thing. All these words are used for
this Divine power. People have heard about it, people have
sung about it, but unfortunately very few people felt it.
And when they felt it they didn't know how to give it to
others, how to make others feel it. So whatever they talked
became sort of a story, or something nonsensical. Nobody
could believe that they have felt anything like that, or
could imagine that there is such a power really existing.
Now, luckily it has become quite a universal fact for all of
you that you know there is this power. You are sure about
this power, because you can feel it, within yourself, and
when you feel it, you feel very joyous. You can make out
whether somebody is telling you the truth or not because you
can see on the vibrations, on this, I should say, the power
of Adi Shakti, she tells you the truth.
somebody has done some harm to you, for example, now you may
say, that"Mother, if you forgive that person, then it's not
the truth, because he has definitely harmed, and if I
forgive that means that I accept that he has not harmed.”
This kind of argument is possible. Now you will see, you
will be surprised, that you forgive that person because the
truth is, whether you forgive or you don't forgive, you
don't do anything — that's the truth. So, out of compassion,
if you forgive someone, compassion becomes the truth. It's
the compassion that tells you the truth.
all the absolute truth that you know is through the
compassion of the Divine Power. Maybe, sometimes people say
"We saw the vibrations Mother, and we felt this way and
still it happened," it makes no difference, whatever has
happened, has happened, doesn't matter. You have felt the
vibrations, and you asked the vibrations, and you acted upon
the vibrations, that's all. Whether it turned out to be that
way or not, is different. Because, it had to be the other
way round. Some drama is going on, it's the Chitvilas, is
the enjoyment of the Chitta of the Divine. So, it's a play
going on, if you can see that play, then you don't get
disturbed, it's a play. How it works, how it is organized,
is not your headache, you just have to see the play of the
Divine, how it works out. We have seen now, all of you,
which you call as miracles have happened.”Mother this
miracle has happened, that miracle has happened and I know
it's all the miracle of the Divine.
Despite that, our faith in the Divine is not so much
enlightened faith. When you have the enlightened faith you
don't worry about things which are very important in life.
If it works out, well and good, if it doesn't work out, well
and good. It should not be assumed, that once you are a
realized soul that the whole world can fall at your feet —
not necessarily. It's a play, it's a beautiful enjoyment of
the attention of the Adi Shakti. So, if you can become the
witness, if you can really become the witness of the whole
thing, then what happens, you grow spiritually much closer,
I should say, you get dissolved into the Divine Power.
I can dissolve others into this ocean of joy, of this
compassion?”Now, you will be surprised that it is your own
compassion only, which is going to give you strength. This
compassion within you, when you will see people are getting
completely drowned, completely destroyed — your compassion
itself will make you powerful. And you will do everything
that is needed, you will give up all nonsensical activities
and you will really dedicate yourself to emancipate other
people. And amazingly as you will do this, your own level of
spirituality will rise. As you see, I would say that when
you dissolve, say some salt in the water, the water rises.
In the same way, the more people, when they will come to
Sahaja Yoga, the Divine Power will manifest much more — it
is manifesting already. But the more people there will be,
there will be much more manifestation, because it will be
like so many channels that will be working it out.
Without Divinity there's no saving for human beings. That,
everybody admits, everybody says so. But they have no idea,
as to what is Divinity, what is the way to achieve it. While
you all have this, you have power to awaken Kundalini. You
know all about chakras, you know all the defects of the
chakras, you can find out from the vibrations the truth
about everything. The more you use this power, the better it
will be. Now here you should understand the relationship of
the God Almighty and Adi Shakti. It's complete unison,
complete understanding. God Almighty is the spectator, he's
watching the work of the Adi Shakti. She is compassion, of
course, she doesn't say that something should be destroyed
or something should be killed, alright, she's compassion.
But He's the one who takes charge if somebody tries to do
something against the Adi Shakti, it is He who takes charge
and changes the whole scene, in such a manner that you don't
understand how it has happened, how it has worked out. What
you have to do is to enjoy the play. In the same manner the
Sahaja Yogis should have a unison, should have
understanding, enjoyment among yourselves.
Anything you find very difficult, is not, because you take
it upon yourself — but if you leave it to this All-pervading
Power of Divine love, to this power of Adi Shakti —
Paramchaitanya — nothing is difficult, nothing is so bad
that you cannot manage it. Adi Shakti has her own Kundalini,
which is the Adi Kundalini, and the reflection of that
within you is the Kundalini.
