Quotes from Shri Mataji, founder of Sahaja Yoga Meditation

The role of wisdom

Centred between feeling and thought

“…wisdom is the balance between his emotionality and rationality, in the centre, between his heart and his mind. It is a centre somewhere there, in the central or you say in the fulcrum. So if you are too much on the emotionality or too much on the rationality you have to move further into the centre and balance it. Then only you are in wisdom and that is how you are guided by wisdom.”

Watch and witness how the ego spoils things

“On the contrary if you have the wisdom, if you have that peace, if you have that special temperament of enjoying everything in life and also the collective temperament, it will work out.”

Equilibrium: our maturity, balance, capacity

“We have reached a stage of understanding the beauty of balance in life. We are trying to stabilise ourselves, and the insecurity is working out.”

Fights, differences, power problems

“If they could just meditate they will know that they are all one, there’s no difference at all.”

Wisdom from the base energy centre (Mooladhara chakra)

“Now this centre has a power to give us wisdom. Now wisdom is such a, such a word that cannot be explained. Wisdom is the balance between your understanding of what is good and what is bad. Where you really understand what is good for you, for your spirit, is wisdom;  and when this centre is alive and is not destroyed then you really know what is wisdom is.”
