Integrity - Leaders like Mahatma Gandhi

In the Sahaja Yoga system, the Crown Chakra, also known as Sahasrara Chakra is where the integration takes place but is not limited to that chakra.

“You see, integrity is not one particular chakra, but it’s the experience. What happens, you get the experience of realization, so that you start feeling the cool breeze, the vibrations of the Holy Ghost, you can say, or of the ruh surrounding you, and you start enjoying it. You just enjoy it, and you don’t want to give it up. You don’t want to give it up, because you enjoy it. That’s how the integrity develops. There is no stamping like that, that you have to be integrated, or you have to be into the integrity – it’s not there.

But the integration does take place, because all these chakras get a sort of a kundalini inside them, which like a thread passes through all these beautiful pearls. So that’s integration is there. But integrity part comes through your own depth, first of all.”

Shri Mataji Nirmala Devi, March 9, 1990

When we think of someone with integrity, Mahatma Gandhi comes to mind. Shri Mataji as a child lived in his ashram and had very high regard for him. She described her relationship with Mahatma Gandhi -

“And then I told him: "We need to have inner discipline" and so he knew that I was a wise person. And he used to love Me and respect Me in a very fatherly manner. He would discuss things with Me. He impressed Me by many things. He had a sense of integrity within himself. He was absolutely honest to himself. That was something I appreciated. He never cheated himself. This is the greatest thing about him. In money matters, anything, he was so integrated. What he said he did, he criticized himself.”
