05/13/09 – 6:42pm (rituals and ego)

“Kundalini will rise and She will cleanse you completely. Kundalini will rise and always cleanse the chakras.”

Shri Mataji Nirmala Devi
Sydney, Australia, March 31, 1991
Once this is power is established no external rituals are required as catches will be healed instantly and constantly by the Mother Kundalini within. Until and unless external cleansing rituals are discarded this power will never be established. On the contrary, all these rituals only make matters worse according to Shri Mataji:

“The people who think that they can control their ego will eat less or use all types of methods to control ego. For example, someone is standing on one leg or other one on his head, all types of efforts they are doing to reduce their ego.

But with all these techniques, ego doesn’t vanish. On the contrary, ego increases. Fasting, reciting the names, increases your ego. With Havans also ego increases because Agni, fire, is the right side element. Anything which is rituals increases your ego.

Human being thinks that they are alright, since they are doing these rituals since thousand years. All the wrong teachings they are still following. For this reason Sahaja Yoga is against Karma Kanda, that is rituals. No need to do any kind of Karma Kanda.

And to go to the extreme point is also dangerous. I had asked them to shoe-beat to destroy their ego and what I see that every morning all the Sahaja Yogis go in the line with their shoes for shoe-beatings. But I had asked to do this if you have ego in you.

All these rituals have entered into Sahaja Yoga. I got somebody in France with the list of the treatments of Vashi hospital. But that was for sick peoples. This is the nature of human being to follow the rituals because he thinks that he can do it.”

  1. I have checked the transcript for Shri Mataji’s talk at Christmas Puja 1997 and the extract you quote is not there. Where did you get it?

  2. the quote at the top of the page or the quoted paragraphs at bottom? either way, ive just spent about 20mins trying to figure that out myself… i remember this post started with something wonderful my girlfriend linked me so i’ll check with her as soon as she wakes up and see if we can narrow down where and what we pulled this from.

  3. hi
    the quote at the top is correct, although the context within the original talk is a bit different from the meaning in the stand-alone quote.
    The main extract is definately not in the Christmas Puja 97 talk.
    Will be interested to see the source.

  4. ok, she thinks we stumbled upon it surfing one of our fav site: http://biologyofkundalini.com/

    couldnt be certain… so we googled the entire quoted mess and found these:

    http://www.sahajayoga-shrimataji.org/sahaja_yoga/shri_mataji_all_these_rituals_have_entered_into_sahaja_yoga_12-13-2006.htm

    http://www.adishakti.org/subtle_system/swadhisthan_chakra.htm

    so it still remains a mystery…

    good luck.
    namaste.
