Thank you Dasi for your kind consideration and humility. Others
would have been less forgiving.

It is true that some SYs love boasting about their ability to check
the chakras of others, thinking those 'caught' are negative. What
galls me is these characters are themselves full of catches,
requiring daily ritualistic cleansing for years. Yet these sickly
SYs keep advising the healthy how to heal! Shri Mataji said
that "some people achieve heights very easily, but some
have to work for six or seven months and are still not all right."
What gives 'sick' SYs working on themselves for more than six months
the authority to order those who have achieved heights to come down
to their level?

Shri Mataji has told SYs to stop checking chakras of others and take
care of themselves. This is because people, especially newcomers,
have been hurt by them. Yet these arrogant SYs keep on giving
unsolicited subtle system diagnosis. What can be done to stop this
insensitive practice?

i do not mind those free of catches to give advise when required.
This is because i KNOW those caught up are often just registering
their own catches when they give such advise. That is the whole
problem with this collective catching mess. The 'sick' are mentally
sneezing and coughing on each other and everybody is psychologically
diseased. After all, you are also healing others by absorbing the
negativity of others. It is all one huge, futile exercise of catch
consciousness.

And when senior SYs proudly proclaim that you will never be free of
catches, chances are you always will remain 'sick'. The whole subtle
system crumbles if you insist that The Mother Kundalini is far
capable of healing. What are SYs going to talk and impress on others
if everyone achieves heights very easily and get healed? Only by
making you guilty of catches can they have control as you beg for
their catch-free enlightenment.

Even this catch-free illumination will never come. So throw all
lemons and chillies into the garbage and past ignorance out of the
window. Just ask The Mother Kundalini within to heal.

i have that same experience with SYs close with Shri Mataji, but my
memories are still painful. One of them is of a SYogini loudly
scolding my 5-year-old son, accusing him of being on drugs just
because she suspected him of scribbled something on the tabla. i
know my son is a gentle soul with a very brave heart, but he still
burst into tears. How often does a stranger scold you so heartlessly?

It hurt me more because i witnessed the whole incident from a blind
spot. How could a self-realized soul and woman hurt an innocent
child with so much anger? Are all children who scribble on walls and
floors on drugs!!??? (This SYogini is still very close with Shri
Mataji.)

Shouldn't SYs then be the most angel-like, loving and compassionate
people on earth? That is what i thought would be the case in the
beginning. i was so blissed out by my son's daily experiences of
witnessing the Goddess in the Sahasrara that i was awed into
humility. There was so much love, innocence and humbleness in me
that i became subservient to SYs. All i wanted to do was to serve
the devotees of the Shakti for the rest of my life. And SYs were for
years almost weekly served with free, fine food cooked with so much
love. Such was the inspiration of knowing that the Creator really
exists, that there is an eternal afterlife, that we will be judged
by our righteous life on Earth that i was even prepared to wash
their feet, just like Jesus did to His disciples. i though those
longer in Sahaja Yoga would be like me, and definitely better.

But in the end all my castles of compassion and dreams of divine
humans vanished. My children were ultimately accused of being
possessed and demonic in nature. Years of my family's unselfish
service to fellow SYs did not even matter - we were evil because our
children witnessed the Shakti ............. against their will.

In the end my heart became so filled with pain and hurt the Shakti
within had to act, even though i never asked for help. i just could
not take the pain and disillusionment any more. i wondered how could
such people inherit eternal life.

My whole family is so glad to be out of the collective. Even my
wife, one of the most humble beings i have ever met, does not want
to go back and join the collective. She was the one who resisted
breaking off the most but now is convinced that it was the right
move. The Goddess within has healed us and allowed us to continue
this journey. For us it was necessary to leave the collective in
order to be free from all fears and conditioning. Now we only
meditate with the Shakti within. The Goddess has truly removed all
obstacles between myself and Her. The Great Event is a personally
journey with absolutely no intermediaries. Don't let them slow you
down with that excess baggage. Don't give up just because SYs are
not what you thought they would be. If you want to change this world
transform yourself first. Others will follow if you are truly
enlightened ........................ and it shows in kind words and
exemplary deeds.

Dasi, i have had so much problems with so few SYs over these years.
Even this forum strains my mind and tests my patience at times. Now
imagined what tens of thousands of SYs have been capable of doing
over decades? i mean having to almost daily deal with complaints,
letters, gossip, negativity, in-fighting, power struggles, hate,
stupidity and what not.

i learnt to be hard after i discovered that many SYs are not angel-
like, loving and compassionate. Honestly, i do not feel good telling
some members off at this forum. But i have no choice as that is the
only way. Some members may think i am not loving and compassionate. The same goes for Shri Mataji. If She had not dealt strongly with some SYs, there will be chaos in Sahaja Yoga. Shri Mataji has also discovered, just like me, that many SYs are not angel-like, loving and compassionate.

But that does not mean She is not loving or compassionate. Does my
dealing strongly with some members make me insensitive and
inconsiderate? If it does than i will have to keep silent and
tolerate all to protect my image and reputation as a realized soul.
But i am not here to make others respect and admire me, just tell
the truth no matter how ego-bruising and loss of members. i think
the same goes for Shri Mataji and how She deals with difficult
people, and i assure you there are many difficult SYs.

Maybe these words from Sir C.P. can throw some light as to how Shri
Mataji has struggled to perform Her duty to the Divine despite all
obstacles:

"I'm not standing up because that would create a problem for the
microphone. First of all I'm very honoured, very happy to be here
with my wife, and I am also very, very pleased to see all of you,
see the faces which show love and divinity and dedication to your
Mother. She has been talking about the role of women and that set me
a thinking. I began to think of the last 48 years that we have been
married, and I just want to tell you very briefly how She has
performed the role of an ideal wife, an ideal mother and an ideal
grandmother in the family, besides being the spiritual leader of
Sahaja Yoga.

When we got married I belonged to a very conservative family. She
belonged to a very radical family and it was a good complement to
each other. But when She came to my house She behaved as if for
generations She had lived in a very conservative family and pleased
everybody. The old ladies of the house who were looking a little
worried, they thought here's a new lady from another province,
speaking another language, professing another religion (Christianity), how will She fit into our family? But what She did was She won over the heart of everyone by behaving in a very modest way, in a very loving way, in a very caring way, and I have to admit that She became the favourite and I was lost.

Well that is how our family life began. I was certainly very happy
about it. But then I was a bureaucrat, a civil servant, and unfortunately given to idea that absolute honesty must be observed, which meant that we had to live within our means, our salary and all I had to do was to work in office, and I left all the problems of the house to my wife. So I said: "Here's the salary, now do what you can." And I tell you She managed beautifully within our means. No possibility of anything going wrong.

We had two children, two daughters. She brought them up, and brought them up extremely well, arranged for their education, arranged for their marriage. Then they grew up, I didn't know how, for I was from morning until late evening every day in office but ... and She was in charge of the house. She looked after not only my daughters, but I want tell you this. All of us have rich relations and they care for themselves, take care, and we have in India poor relations as well, and when you are in a good position the poor relations flock to you. And they came to our house, children who needed education, and each one of them (we had some sort of hostel running all the time) each one of them was looked after by my wife in the same way as our own daughters; given the same food, given the same affection. Only She could have done that. And they have grown up, they're now in so many places. That was the role She played as a mother. Mother not only to my children, but to the children of the family.

And then as we grew further, She had a role to play as my wife. I
held some assignments in government in India and abroad in the
United Nations. When I was Secretary to the Prime Minister of India,
about whom I have written a book now, She was the main motive force
behind me. In fact I wouldn't have gone to Mr Shastri if She had not
insisted that I must go, and I went and served there. Mr Shastri had
very great respect for Her because She was, of course She was
obviously a spiritual person but also a very good mother, a very
good housewife; and he used to ask Her: "How do you run your
house, what are your priorities?" And She would say what She had
to say, and Mr Shastri listened to that.

Now as a wife She played that role. When I was working with the
Prime Minister sometimes I would be in the office till midnight. Why
sometimes? Every day. Sometimes till early hours of the morning. But
She supported me. She said, "This is your duty now, duty to your
country, to your Prime Minister. You must work. Don't worry about
the house. Don't worry about the children. I'll take care of
them."

Then I went to United Nations. There again, my goodness me, you have to take care of one government was bad enough in India, to take care of 130 governments all over was not easy. Travelling, meeting
people, receptions, dinners, a very busy life. But She stood by me,
and while doing all that She was at the same time promoting Sahaja
Yoga. I don't know how She did it but She has done a wonderful job.
You know I saw Sahaja Yoga beginning with four people in London and
they were wearing jeans, not very clean either. That was the
beginning of Sahaja Yoga. One day I came back home and found a young boy — I'm talking 1974, — young boy sitting in my drawing
room, and when I entered the house he looked at me as if I was a
stranger, he was the real owner of the house. So I receded. I didn't
quite understand, but what surprised me even more was that he was
wearing my clothes. I rubbed my eyes. I said: "Am I seeing
something real or is it a dream?" Well, then I receded.

I came to my wife and I said, "Now who, who is this gentleman?" So She explained. She said, "You know he's a poor young boy, and he was almost lying unattended to, unhelped near Piccadilly Circus." She had gone out for shopping and She saw him lying almost in a miserable condition. So She stepped out of the car, went to that boy, said: "Why are you lying here, are you alright?" He said no, he was not well at all. She said, "Is there anyone to take care of you?" He said, "No, there's
none." She said, "That's awful." Then She said, "Okay, hop into the car", and She brought him home.

Then he was given a wash. He had no clothes, so he had to wear my
clothes, and that's how he was wearing my clothes. And then for the
next some weeks he stayed in the house, and there I saw Sahaja Yoga
acting. This boy was suffering from, I think, he was in very bad
shape. within three, four weeks he blossomed. Another three, four
weeks became healthy person. And then we got to know that he was
from Australia. He was a young engineer who had run away from his
house and was in bad shape. After he was cured he became a very good person. He came back to Australia, was united with his mother. I
don't know where he is, a Mr Gus, but that was what I saw, the
miracle of Sahaja Yoga, and from those four persons, yes four I
talked to they.....Once I came home and found four persons wearing
jeans, and again I did not know who they were, but they were Sahaja
Yogis, and they were the initial Sahaja Yogis. Well, from them to
this is a marvel.

All I can say is despite all Her attention to the family, to me,
(I've been a busy person), She has attended to all the duties of the
family; She has created a new universal family of Sahaja Yoga. Each
Sahaja Yogi in my view is an angel. And I mean this. I mean this
because I have known human beings in the world. The world is
terrible. If you look at newspapers you will see all kinds of horror
stories, but when you meet a Sahaja Yogi, he or she is a very
different person. The face is different, the inner self is
different, the outer self is different. It's another creation. And
She has created thousands and thousands of such persons. Each one of
you is a miracle. You know, it's very difficult to transform human
beings. I have worked in United Nations, in India, for 40 years. I
cannot honestly say that I was able to transform even one human
being. Yes, people followed my example and worked hard, but that's
not transformation. Transformation is what I see in you. And that is
a miracle. That is what She has done. And now a new world is being
created. I sincerely hope that Sahaja Yoga will spread more rapidly.
It has spread very, very fast but it needs to spread very much
faster.

And all over the world there's a race between the forces of good and
the forces of evil. You represent the force of good — the forces
of evil outside. Have the heart, have the courage. She, Her
vibrations and your vibrations will, I hope envelop the world and
create a good world, and this bad world will be suppressed, will
disappear. This is all that I can say. I thank you very much for
receiving me here. I'm delighted to be in Australia. I have liked my
visit immensely already. I think in Australia the beautiful thing is
that the advantages of a developed world are present here, but the
heart seems to be very good, very sound, wonderful. You are open-
hearted people, warm people, loving people, and I cannot say how
very, very ... I cannot say adequately how very happy I am and how
very grateful. I thank you, Ma'm, for letting me come to Australia
and I am going to enjoy my stay, so that's all that I can say."

Sir C.P. Srivastava
Melbourne Airport, Australia, February 19, 1995


Dasi, you don't know how many times you have asked in your
meditation if she is the Goddess. Let me tell you of something
similar.

i once told my son to ask Jesus if indeed Shri Mataji is the
Comforter. i told him that although we all know She is, i just want
to ask Him. When Kash meditated and requested permission to approach Jesus the Goddess gently rejected permission. This incident is one of those rare occasions when She refused to accommodate a request. The question was not only frivolous but insulting to the Savior as well since we all knew She is the Comforter sent by Him.

Dasi, i am giving you evidence and testimony that She is the Goddess
within. If i ask Her the same question you did i am sure there will
be no answer. And i don't think She will answer any other question
either. Only the SILENCE answers all questions. Just learn to listen
to IT.

Learn from the mystics banished for what they know and proclaim, not
the ignorant, cowardly priests who rule the collective temples. Even
if you do not remain you must always seek the company of spiritual
people. Do not ever abandon the path to seek the Divine. And seek a
guru or path that embraces all religions, prophets and scriptures.
Seek the Shakti who is entrenched in all traditions. Only after
meeting the Divine Mother is liberation possible. So where else does
the Goddess reside, if not in your own Sahasara?

There is nothing i can do to make you change your feelings about
Her. You have not been able to understand what it takes to transform
humans i.e. dealing with all sorts of characters. There is bound to
be conflicts in any human organization. How they are resolved is
subjective. What may be regarded as enlightenment by some may be
viewed as high-handedness by others. Charging a few thousands
dollars for a series of mantras or scaling up the Scientology grades
may be reasonable for many but charging $108 for pujas may be
highway robbery to others. It is all in your mind.

The vast majority of SYoginis are loving, nurturing and compassionate. That was the only incident i had of a negative SYogini. Yes, maybe she may have had a bad day but i was shocked at her behavior. But picking one SYogini and questioning why she cannot emit Mother's Love is asking for way too much. It is just like looking at thousands of shining stars and picking one that has less lustre, and wondering what went wrong.

You should know that Shri Mataji has transformed tens of thousands
of people to live better, spiritual lives. Putting our attention on
a few fallen ones will always create doubts in our minds about Shri
Mataji abilities.

As i said before most SYs are kind, considerate and loving. Yes, Sir
CP said that all the Sahaja Yogis are like angels and Shri Mataji has transformed them. i don't see anything false about this statement. Can you name me one guru/religious organization that has been able to make their followers unconditionally embrace all religions, their messengers and scriptures? How is it possible for so many SYs who were former drunks, drug addicts, social misfits, hippies etc. to give up all these vices and believe in the Divine? Why do you feel Sir CP is wrong and Shri Mataji is not able to transform her disciples? It just does not make sense.

i wonder why you think they must be dealt strongly. Did they murder,
rape or embezzle? What is the seriousness of their crimes that has
left you unsatisfied? Have you witnessed them first-hand or just
depending on rumours and hearsay?

Shri Mataji has expelled a number of leaders from Sahaja Yoga for
wrongdoings. Are you not satisfied by Her having the guts to expell
those capable of damaging Sahaja Yoga once out of the organization?
Why do you think you know better?

They are ALL asking the vibrations and that is how they get answers.

If you are truly in Silence nothing can take you away from anything. Shri Mataji IS the incarantion of the Goddess within. After 10 years
and thousands of visits in the Sahasrara there is no way anyone can
demolish this Truth. There is just no way any human can do so, unless of course they just do not want to believe. They must logically deny all the evidence i have presented so far and will present in the future. There is just no way anyone can do so. Whether humans believe or not is immaterial. In the end it is the Divine Message that matters and you know what it is. Denying that Shri Mataji is the Goddess does nothing to diminish that Message. It will stand on this Earth as long as it exists!

It is the Divine Message that matters after all. You are free to do
as you wish.

Dasi,

Why are you so sure that i am angry with you? How have i made you
into an ignorant and stupid person? If you are going to be so
sensitive then it will be difficult to be honest and truthful
because the ego gets bruised.

So what made you feel ignorant and stupid, and think that i was
angry?

As i said before most SYs are kind, considerate and loving. Yes, Sir
CP said that all the Sahaja Yogis are like angels and Shri Mataji
has transformed them. i don't see anything false about this
statement. Can you name me one guru/religious organization that has
been able to make their followers unconditionally embrace all
religions, their messengers and scriptures? How is it possible for so
many SYs who were former drunks, drug addicts, social misfits,
hippies etc. to give up all these vices and believe in the Divine?
Why do you feel Sir CP is wrong and Shri Mataji is not able to
transform her disciples? It just does not make sense.

—————-

Maybe the above answer made you feel that way. But what is so hurtful about it? You are doubting Shri Mataji is able to transform humans, even implying that Sir CP could be wrong! i am trying to make you understand that is just not true because Sir CP just does not make bombastic statements. He is a very distinguished diplomat who served as Secretary General of the UN International Maritime Organization for a record term of 16 years. Sir C.P. Srivastava is himself distinguished not only as India's most decorated civil servant but also as the first Indian to be knighted by Queen Elizabeth II for his contribution to the United Nations. You just don't accuse such eminent beings of being wrong, especially when he has been married to Her for more than half a century. He knows Shri Mataji far more than anyone else. That is why his words carry weight and we have to respect his point of view.

However i think you are doubting him because of he used the word "angel". Perhaps that is all there it to it. But "angel" is just a figure of speech. And Sir CP says they are LIKE angels, not angels. Please try to understand what people are trying to say when such descriptive terms are used. Does President Bush's "axis of evil" make all Iraqis, Iranians and North Koreans into wicked beings? Does greeting others with "Good Morning" make the morning better or subject to arguments? They are all figures of speech. A figure of speech, sometimes termed a rhetorical figure or device, or elocution, is a word or phrase that departs from straightforward, literal language. Figures of speech are often used and crafted for emphasis, freshness of expression, or clarity. However, clarity may also suffer from their use when Oprah Winfrey, along with millions of others, say so often "You are an angel." At least Sir CP was more precise, truthful and less flattering when he used the term "like angels".

i wonder why you think they must be dealt strongly. Did they murder,
rape or embezzle? What is the seriousness of their crimes that has
left you unsatisfied? Have you witnessed them first-hand or just
depending on rumours and hearsay?

Shri Mataji has expelled a number of leaders from Sahaja Yoga for
wrongdoings. Are you not satisfied by Her having the guts to expell
those capable of damaging Sahaja Yoga once out of the organization?
Why do you think you know better?

—————-

i think you are very judgmental when you say "she still has so many
hard and cold people around her. She has not dealt with them strongly." In fact you are accusing all of them of some imaginary crime which, in your case, is being hard and cold. Maybe your comprehension of "hard and cold" may actually be a case of quiet, stoic, meditative individuals. Have you met all of them personally? Maybe they are busy carrying out their duties. Maybe they have met funny people and try not to waste their energies when it can be better used. There are so many reasons and we are just speculating. For all we know they may actually be very
warm, nice and friendly people. The video tapes of pujas and public
programs are proof of what i am saying. Where are the "many hard and
cold people around her" that you have seen? Yes, many one or two may
be hard and cold and that is a big MAYBE. But you are speaking of
many hard and cold people. This is just not true Dasi.

Now i am wondering why you want them to be punished and that Shri
Mataji must deal with them strongly. What have they done wrong? Why
do you feel they must be punished? Why do you think you know better?

If asking you to justify your accusations with solid facts make you think i am angry, what can i really ask you then? And the fact is that i am not. i am just asking questions that strip accusations of falsehood and expose the naked truth. Please do not expect me to butter you just to make you believe in Shri Mataji.

i am very disappointed with SYs because they do not have the courage
and conviction to announce the Last Judgment and Resurrection. i am
also very concerned about the way they put so much emphasis on
cleansing chakras and treatments. i am appalled by the fear exhibited by some SYs regarding all types of evil entities - cats, bats, bhoots, spiders and what not.

Yes, i met only one negative SY because of what she did. Perhaps she
has improved since. My definition of "negative' may not be what others think it is. We will start splitting hairs is we try to argue about this.

Most SYs are LIKE angels, not angels and don't get me wrong this time. All humans who try to live a honest righteous life, believe in God and love ALL others are LIKE angels. i am sure millions of priests, pastors, reverends, bishops, popes, rabbis, clerics, imams, mullahs, shaikhs, ulema, ayatollahs, gurus, swamis, pandits, brahmins, acaryas, bhagwans, granthis, gianis, lamas, monks, dalai lamas have described humans as angels. So please do not crucify me if i think SYs are like angels, not angels.

i came out of the collective because it was necessary for me to heal
myself. When others think your children are possessed for having that cosmic vision it is time to protect your family by isolation. Moreover my views are very strong and opposed to what SYs are doing to spread the advent of Shri Mataji. At the time i leaving i was already begin to argue and question the integrity of SYs. i still am.

Yes, Shri Mataji did say to be collective. This is crucial for initial growth. Once the kundalini is established you have to ascend. It becomes necessary to be in Collective Consciousness. Many SYs are still in local collective consciousness. They still have not understood what She means by being collective. Shri Mataji has said exactly what i am telling you. Yes, Her words do matter. It all depends on how you comprehend their deeper meanings. That is why it is necessary to listen to Her tapes many times ................... unless you depend on the SILENCE by meditating on Her in the Sahasrara. The SILENCE will teach you the true meaning of being
collective.
