Sahaja Yoga is the spontaneous union of the individual consciousness with the All-Pervading Divine Power.— Nirmala Srivastava
The most inspiring Nirmala Srivastava quotes that will activate your inner potential
You cannot know the meaning of your life until you are connected to the power that created you.
Whatever you have to have, try to have something which is handmade.
"I don't like it" or "I like it". This sentence must go away from your tongue. Likes and dislikes are only for people who have limited vision. You should learn to appreciate.
To allow your Spirit to manifest, you have to understand Its nature.
Spirit can never be aggressive, can never dominate. It respects the freedom of another person because It's a free being.
Unless and until you introspect you cannot even respect yourself.
You cannot even love yourself. If you love yourself you will introspect and find out what's wrong.
One has to practice wisdom through living in the present.
Wisdom you don't get in colleges, schools, universities, nowhere.
Where do you get it, the wisdom? You get it through your spirit, which gives you a complete idea as to what is right and what is wrong.
Self Realization is the first encounter with reality.
The body of a human being is a temple of God.
But this temple has to be enlightened and has to be auspicious. You have to clear and clean your being completely so it's a beautiful temple for God to reside.
There is no solution to any world problem, to any national problem, to any city problem or to any local problem, unless and until people get their Realization.
To achieve your ethereal state, you have to expand your thoughtless awareness.
You have to learn humility. First of all you have to be humble people. Unless and until you have a large heart you can never humble down. You have to be an extremely humble person. Humility doesn't mean that you bow to a person who is dominating, it never means that. But it means a strength within you. The person who is weak can never be humble.
Wisdom means that it gives you detachment, detachment from all that is selfishness, self-centredness, self-obsession, ego - all connected with self.
We are all part and parcel of one country. And that country is of love.
To think that the woman is dominated by man or man is dominated by woman comes from a kind of a complex and this complex must be given up. You are complimentary to each other. You decorate each other. Never talk ill of your husbands and never talk ill of your wives. This is the key of having an exclusive married life.
So there is nothing to be proud of these worldly possessions.
What you are to be proud of, or to be conscious of is your spirit. Spirit is the only thing that can kindle another spirit.
Meditation is the only way you can grow.
Because when you meditate, you are in silence, you are in thoughtless awareness. Then the growth of awareness takes place.
The truth is you are the pure Spirit.
The second truth is that there is a all-pervading Divine power of love. This power of love does all the living work.
Freedom is when you really get your own powers which are within you.
Spirit is like a mirror where you see yourself clearly and you start changing yourself.
Kundalini cures you, she improves you, she bestows all the blissful things upon you. She takes you away from the worries of grosser level.
The truth which can be actualized after Self Realization is that you are not this body, this mind, this conditioning from the past, this ego, these emotions, but that you are the pure spirit.
The spirit is the only thing that is free within, which has no hang-ups, which has no habits, which does not stick on to anything, is completely detached and emitting joy to us.
So as you are, in whatever conditions you are, in whatever situations you are, whatever may be the surroundings, like a dirty mire full of creatures and filth, you can become like lotuses. When you become like lotuses, all that is filth, all that is horrible can become fragrant. And this is what we have to achieve.
A star is shining within us and that is our Spirit.
Once you start growing in your self-realization, you develop such a personality that you see the whole world as one.
If you learn how to make fun of yourself, your ego will go down.
You should be able to use your intellect and not to be dominated by your intellect.
Without satisfaction, you cannot have compassion.
You have to be satisfied souls, then your compassion will act.
Only after Self-Realisation and only then, is there a direct experience of the Spirit. It then manifests its powers in the human personality, and it's light enlightens the consciousness into a new awareness. The Divine intelligence of the Spirit radiates on all sides.
If your body wants comfort, you try to make it learn to give up that.
Try to make your body your slave and not you the slave of the body.
Now the stage today is to know that Self Realization gives you experiences and then your faith is established. Not blind but open enlightened faith.
Spirit is the source of peace. It is the source of joy. It is not a duality of happiness and unhappiness, but singular joy.
Science is absolutely incomplete unless and until the scientists are Realised Souls. Medicine is incomplete, Physics, Chemistry, Biology, everything is incomplete unless and until you know the Divine laws.
In the unspoilt state of innocent childhood, practically every human being has a natural and direct feeling for the existence of God Almighty. But as time passes, this faith may be deflected and people start believing in other powers - political, economic or social.
In modern times, what impresses one is not a simple and unassuming statement of the truth, but superficial showmanship and display.
I call that person the most intelligent who sees the benevolence, the ascent and the ultimate goal.
Now the best thing is to put attention to your Spirit.
If you start putting your attention to Spirit, the sweetness of the Spirit itself will make the whole thing very sweet and beautiful.
Innately within us, resides the Spirit which wants to enlighten you, to give the peace, the bliss and the joy of our being.
The enjoyment of life is only possible if the world could get connected to the spirit... you become the spirit as Christ has said in simple words that you have to be born again.
Joy only can be achieved through complete detachment, the detachment which is egoless and superegoless.
Surrendering means cleansing yourself completely, getting completely detached.
Detachment is the only way you can rise.
When the Kundalini rises, automatically you develop your own balances and that balanced life manifests outside. Now this ecological problem can be solved as soon as human beings get transformed and develop their balances. Because we are imbalanced, that's why the nature has gone into imbalance.
You might be anything. You might be having any organization, you might be having any position in life, you might be any great personality, makes no difference to God. What is important is that: are you seeking?
Wisdom can only come through honest introspection.
..the self-knowledge that I am talking about is concrete, verifiable and is tangible like science itself and completely understandable in rational terms.
We have to get awakened to the fact that in recent decades, great destruction has been caused to our moral values as a result of our children, parents and families, getting influenced by the chaotic conditions of modern times.
Without knowing your Spirit you cannot know God.
The ascent is the aim of your life and to perfect it is your job.
