- Witnessing Thoughts -

Mentally, you may at first find your thoughts wandering to past or projected future events. Try to witness them and let go, gradually letting the peace settle in. After some time, you will find that your mind is at rest, though fully alert.

To close your meditation, give yourself a bandhan and raise your Kundalini. This regular practice will help you to develop and maintain a state of inner peace which will last throughout the day as your attention becomes more and more strongly identified with the spirit within. These are the very basic indications are by way of introduction. Further meditation and clearing techniques and practices will be explained to you at your local Sahaja Yoga center.

(The Practice of Sahaja Yoga)
A Guide for Beginners - From the Teachings of Shri Mataji Nirmala Devi, Page 33


"With a complete surrendered mind, you have to go through the pilgrimage of this castle. This is one of the glimpses of the tapas that you have to do because
I am told, some of you had to get into little difficulties and you, people, suffered a little bit on your way for the pilgrimage. But it is fun to be venturesome
and to get into places where the devils dare not to go".

"And if you know how to get fun out of the so-called discomforts, then you should know you are on the right line".

"And as you start becoming discreet automatically, you should know you are progressing well".

"As you become more peaceful and your temper vanishes in the thin air as soon as you see somebody attacking you, then know that you are progressing well".

"As soon as you see an ordeal or a calamity falling on the personality and you don't get worried about it,then know that you are progressing".

"When no amount of artificiality can impress you, then know that you are progressing, no amount of material well-being in others makes you unhappy, then know that you are progressing well. No amount of labour or troubles are sufficient to become a Sahaja Yogi".

"Whatever you may try, one cannot become a Sahaja Yogi, while you have got it without any effort, so you are something special. So, this one should understand that you are special. You will become humble about it. Then, when it happens to you that you humble down when you see you have achieved something, that you have some powers, that you are emitting innocence, that you are discreet and as a result of that you become a more compassionate, humbler personality, a sweeter personality, then you should believe that you are in the Heart of Your Mother".

"This is what is the sign of the new Sahaja Yogi now in the new area, who has to move with new force, where you will grow so fast that ...... without meditation you will be in meditation, without being in my presence, you will be in my presence, without asking, you will be blessed by Your Father. This is what you are in for and again I welcome you to this new area today on this great day of Sahasrara".

May God bless you!
