to Recieve Self Realization -
New York 1998
you searching? Why are you aimlessly and listlessly running about? The
joy that you have searched in material gains, the joy that you are looking
for in power, the joy that disappeared in the words of books-the so-called
knowledge-is all lost in yourself, and you are still searching and seeking!
You can pay attention to everything outside, yourself! You are lost in
your thoughts, like babes in the wood! But there is great hope that you
can rise into the Heaven of "thoughtless" awareness, which we call Self-realization."
you to this feast of Divine Bliss, which is pouring around you, even in
this Kaliyuga, in these God-forsaken modern times. I hope you will come
and enjoy the spiritual experience of the Life Eternal."
(Shri Mataji Nirmala Devi)
This letter was written by Shri Mataji in 1972 during Her first trip
to America to give public programs.
To my flower children
You are angry with life
Like small children
Whose Mother is lost in Darkness.
Your sulk expressing despair
At the fruitless end of your journey.
You wear Ugliness to discover Beauty.
You name everything false in the name of Truth.
You drain out emotions to fill the cup of Love.
My sweet children, my darling
How can you get peace by waging war
With yourself, with your being, with joy itself.
Enough are your efforts of renunciation.
The artificial mask of consolation.
Now rest in the petals of the lotus flower
In the lap of your gracious Mother.
I will adorn your life with beautiful blossoms
And fill your moments with joyful fragrance.
I will anoint your head with Divine Love
For I cannot bear your torture anymore.
Let me engulf you in the ocean of joy,
So you lose your being in the Greater one
Who is smiling in your calyx of self
Secretly hidden to tease you all the while.
Be aware and you will find Him
Vibrating your every fibre with blissful joy
Covering the whole Universe with light.
