So you see they understood all these things very well and because My father was a realized soul like Khalil Gibran, you see, if you read Khalil Gibran he says the same thing about Paul, the same thing. So you see if you are an enlightened person you see the essence of everything. Whatever religion you may be born you don’t ignore any other religion. You try to learn about other religion and you find the essence is the same in every religion. What is there to fight? And that’s how you belong to no religion, you belong to every religion. That’s what happens.

A person who is realised will just feel the vibrations of the book, immediately. I mean, they will just not look at it and run away, you just feel the heat. Sometimes you get blisters from some books, you will be amazed, some books give you blisters. The other day we went to a library, because they had a library in that church, united church and I ran away from there, I said “There are no good books in this, only one or two are there” [..]. You can get blisters also from them.

Don has already spoken so authentically about Self-realization, that some of you must be wondering what sort of a gimmick we are up to. But one has to understand that only a person who is there can talk that authentically, or a person who is a complete hoax. It has to be two extremes. A person, who says maybe, may not be, perhaps, it is so or somebody who sings about his separation and his pains are definitely not there, because if you have met the truth, if you have seen the reality then you speak like Christ, “I am the light, I am the path”. You speak like Shri Krishna, “Sarva Dharman parityajya maam ekam sharanam vraja”?. Means give up all the religions; religions mean outside seeking and follow me.

The authenticity comes from the feeling, or we can say the feeling of authenticity itself. Unless and until you have achieved it, you do not speak like that – your language is different. Like, many poets and many even devotees of God have sung the song, “oh God, when are you going to meet us?” As long as they are singing such songs, then you should know they are not realized, souls. But we have lots of poets, you too have Blake. We had a poet like Kabir. Many poets like this have sung the song where they said, “this is it. You better come up and have it” and all such people who have spoken like this are the people who have achieved it.  
  
Only the way you can understand is through some of the poets like Blake or you can say Khalil Gibran or some of the people or through the scriptures you can find out who Mataji is. But the best part is that the poets of India, the ancient seers of India, had given it much more clearly and when you try to test it with that you can find out who Mataji is. So first you better read these things and then talk about Mataji. On this line you all should write.

We can say in modern times Kahlil Gibran I’m told you people study. He was one of them. We can say Zen is also the same thing. There are so many people who have said this. Mohammed was the same. All these scriptures which are written after these great incarnations on this earth, all of them are saying the same thing that they have achieved it and that you have to achieve it. All of them say that you are to be re-born. I do not know how in any religion people have given up this idea of being re-born. Nobody has gone to the seeking of it, especially when they have organized religions. They have never bothered to find out what is it talking about? It is taking about a re-birth even, even in the Bible. Not going to church, coming home and saying your hymns and finished. That can never, never satisfy our spiritual urge, which is much stronger, much stronger than this kind of little bits of foods given to us. Unless and until we have achieved that goal, we are not going to be satisfied. We have to understand [although ‘to understand’ is grammatically correct but Shri Mataji is actually saying ‘to understood’] ourselves and we must have our self-esteem.

Buddha has failed, Christ has failed, Mohammed-sahib has failed because people never understood them. They were too great for the human mind. So the first thing I did was to study human beings for about forty-seven years of My age and I saw how complicated they were and then I found out this method of en masse Realization. There were many Sufis who got Realization. There were many Saints in India who got Realization, but very, very few. Also, among Christians, there were some who got Realization – Kahlil Gibran. But they were all tortured. ([http://www.amruta.org/1995/09/19/medical-conference-in-st-petersburg-1995/ 1995-09-19])

So we have to say now, to understand them also, you have to have your self knowledge. They’re all making money in the name of these great founders of religion or they’re spreading poison. In Mecca there were thousands and thousands of Muslims and there was one fellow from Sudan. He was black, absolutely jet black, and he was spreading poison in the name of Mohammed-sahib. I had somebody close to Me who knew Arabic and I was shocked. And just after that, there was a stampede and thirty-two people, innocent people who had gone for Haj, died in the stampede. You can’t spread a poison in the name of divine people. It is sinful.

Shri Mataji: Must you read? Must you read? Better give up reading. As it is your eyesight is very weak. Better not read. What is the need to read? You read your sum, you read in Sahaja Yoga. What is the need to read? If you have to read, read Khalil Gibran, you read so many things of the Goddess. These things you must read if you have to read. But try to read less. I think you people are read, over read. First it should be emptied then you should read some thing sensible. Because they read read read read read. They read too much in the west. Any thing sells, which ever is printed. You should reduce reading. It is too much. I never read. I have no time to read any thing. What is there to read? You can read within ourselves, there is a library within ourselves.

Sunday morning have a nice dress, go to the church, I have done my work as far as God is concerned. Or I would say for a Hindu is to go to the temple, take some money give it to the Brahmin there, done. So they are also lost in it. Then there are lots of markets now a days. We have ‘spiritualists’ and we have ‘charismatics’ and we have got ‘seventh day adventist’ and ‘born again’; all sorts. They are only same people with different brands. There’s no difference between one human being and another, even if you put any brand on our head we are just the same. There is no difference at all. They may profess something, but whatever you profess is not within you. So it is not what you profess is important, but what you become. Becoming is the point. What you become on your central nervous system. That is the evolutionary impact. When we evolve from animal to human state it is expressed on our central nervous system. For example if you have to take a dog through a dirty lane, he has no objection, he just walks through. But we cannot go. Now you bring a dog here in a good garden, he’s quite happy, he doesn’t know whether it is a beautiful garden of flowers or it’s a dirty lane. But for a human being this awareness is there and he can feel it. Now to human beings if you talk of sin this that, they don’t understand. They’ll say, “What’s wrong? What’s wrong?” “If I kill somebody what’s wrong?” “If I do like this what’s wrong?” Because the awareness is at that level. But Christ, would He do such a thing? Buddha, would He do such a thing? Khalil Gibran, would he do such a thing? William Blake? No, why? Because they are above us and their sense and sensitivity has developed in such a manner that they are the people who know what is right and what is wrong.
 
 
 
So we live in a relative world. We must accept this. We have no sense of absolute and even if we have it is told to us from our fathers, forefathers or in the church or in the temple somewhere; is all conditioning. We do not know for definite whether it is right or wrong because we haven’t got that awareness. So what has to happen to you is that you have to become collectively conscious that means you can feel your own centers on your finger tips. That is Self-Realization, you know your Self and you should feel the centers of other people on your finger tips and so that you know what is wrong with another person or what is wrong with you. But you are so much separated from yourself like it becomes your cloth, the whole body, the ego, the superego that you know it is wrong and you clear it out, if you know the technique. This is the another meaning of the word Yoga.

When He came on this earth, the industrial revolution had not taken its respite. People were still entering into those ‘mills’ as he calls them and He saw the scribes how they were behaving and He saw the whole myth of religion. He does not know that all the religions were doing the same nonsense everywhere, not only Christianity. You go to any other country and see every religion is the same style of a nonsense, which is opposite of what the prophets told them, of what the incarnations told them, of what all the great sages told them. This is not only about Christianity, but still nobody can forgive it, because Christianity has a special fervor, has a special role, has a special meaning, that’s what He’s tried to also say, that Moses came on this earth to lay down the code of conduct, morality, the moral thing, and also He describes Milton as a person who describes a Deity who is above everything, a puritanical Deity. But He describes the Divine humanity. Also He describes the Christ who came on this earth for the emancipation of human beings; not to tell them, “Don’t do this and don’t do that.” That was all right at the time of Moses in the beginning of it, the code of it, and He calls it a ‘moral’ Christianity, meaning ‘immoral’ must be, because if you force someone, into something and pass such laws and regulations at this time, modern times, it’s going to be impossible for human beings to follow and they’ll fall into some other traps.
 
 
 
Strict rules of anything, imposed on people who are not realized souls, can push them into some sort of problems, they can become criminals, they can become violent as a reaction and we see the reaction today acting, that the hypocrisy of the whole thing is exposed. Like in India or anywhere else, they will say, “You should not be attached to money, give the money to the church, to the temple, to the mosque, to all the people to enjoy it.” The kind of life people led in those days in the name of God, was no model for anyone and that’s how poets like Him were born again and again. I would say that in Lebanon a great poet, like Kahlil Gibran, was born, and then in India we had so many such poets, who just lashed the society and lashed all these ideas of the intellectuals, the ideas of the religions, the ones who were trying to curb them. Because there was no genuineness, there was no sincerity. If we are honest people, we really mean it, then let us face it and see for ourselves what we have to achieve.
 
  
So that is how He came as a poet, a remarkable poet, the way He rhymes it and the sense of humor He has and the way He unfolds the beauty of words as any poet should do. In Sanskrit it is said, vakyam rasatmakam kavyam – poetry is full of rasats; rasats means the essences, the explosion of essences through words. If it could be done, then the magic of it is called as poetry and that’s what you find in Blake. Such a great poet; poetry is only great when it talks of the Divine and when it talks of the baser things, takes you to the baser things. The other day I heard one Australian poet and I was amazed at his bathroom singing, it was horrible; how can you call it a poetry which sings of baser things of life, which takes you to the baser things and pleasures? But He has very clearly, if you can understand Him, has said, “What are these books for? This is to collect money out of them.” Now how do you collect money? By playing on the weaknesses of the people, pampering their ego, pampering their greed.

So when you are developped still you see the Kundalini rising : you see the pulsation in the triangular bone. You can see with your naked eye the pulsation here. You can with stethoscope – can see the pulsation just like heart : “Lap, lap”. Going up to that point and you can see the beaking of this because the bones here become soft. You see it with your naked eyes but still you go on doubting about it. You still start analysing it. It would be something like I give you a nice cake to eat and you sit down with your analysis. It’s so absurd as if an egg has to go to the library to find out how to fly or become a bird.

We had a great poet Kabir he said : [“Padi, Padi pandit murakh bahe”?] meaning : “By reading these great educated people have become stupid.” He was very-very straight. He has said by shaving your head or by wearing your crown if you can go to God then what about the sheep which is shaved twice a year? All such beautiful things he has said and then you start understanding the great poets like Khalil Gibran and all such poets which have reached the state of oneness with God. After Realization you share their joy and understand.
 
When I was born, My father told Me very clearly that the people are born on the ground floor and if you are born on the tenth floor they cannot understand you. That ‘s why they crucified Christ. What a mistake it was! When Krishna came they said they believed in Rama. Same here when Christ came in they said : “ We believe in Abraham.” Or when Moses came they said : “We believe in Abraham.” That’s how they avoided to accept someone who was telling the truth. It is nive to have somebody believe into someone who is dead because you can do whatever you like with it. He is not going to sit on your head and even if he comes back you will say he is not the same or kill him or crucify him or give him poison and torture him.

Khalil Gibran.jpg

Question: what is the way of telling what is true and what is false, in terms of all the literature and all philosophies and all the writings. What is the in which you can tell the truth from falsehood?

Shri Mataji: First of all, you see, you cannot judge so rationally, but logically you can find out who is a true master, like, we can say, Khalil Gibran. Khalil Gibran is, no doubt, because he talks of the meeting, not of the suffering, but of the meeting, of the joy and everything. Like that you can judge it logically, a little bit.

A person who is realized will just feel the vibrations of the book, immediately. I mean, they will just not look at it and run away, you just feel the heat. Sometimes you get blisters from some books, you will be amazed, some books give you blisters. The other day we went to a library because they had a library in that church, united church and I ran away from there, I said “There are no good books in this, only one or two are there” [..]. You can get blisters also from them. (1981-10-09)

Don has already spoken so authentically about Self-realization, that some of you must be wondering what sort of a gimmick we are up to. But one has to understand that only a person who is there can talk that authentically, or a person who is a complete hoax. It has to be two extremes. A person, who says maybe, may not be, perhaps, it is so or somebody who sings about his separation and his pains are definitely not there, because if you have met the truth, if you have seen the reality then you speak like Christ, “I am the light, I am the path”. You speak like Shri Krishna, “Sarva Dharman parityajya maam ekam sharanam vraja”?. Means give up all the religions; religions mean outside seeking and follow me.

The authenticity comes from the feeling, or we can say the feeling of authenticity itself. Unless and until you have achieved it, you do not speak like that – your language is different. Like, many poets and many even devotees of God have sung the song, “oh God, when are you going to meet us?” As long as they are singing such songs, then you should know they are not realized, souls. But we have lots of poets, you too have Blake. We had a poet like Kabir. Many poets like this have sung the song where they said, “this is it. You better come up and have it” and all such people who have spoken like this are the people who have achieved it.

We can say in modern times Kahlil Gibran I’m told you people study. He was one of them. We can say Zen is also the same thing. There are so many people who have said this. Mohammed was the same. All these scriptures which are written after these great incarnations on this earth, all of them are saying the same thing that they have achieved it and that you have to achieve it. All of them say that you are to be re-born. I do not know how in any religion people have given up this idea of being re-born. Nobody has gone to the seeking of it, especially when they have organized religions. They have never bothered to find out what is it talking about? It is taking about a re-birth even, even in the Bible. Not going to church, coming home and saying your hymns and finished. That can never, never satisfy our spiritual urge, which is much stronger, much stronger than this kind of little bits of foods given to us. Unless and until we have achieved that goal, we are not going to be satisfied. We have to understand [although ‘to understand’ is grammatically correct but Shri Mataji is actually saying ‘to understood’] ourselves and we must have our self-esteem. (1980-07-15)

Buddha has failed, Christ has failed, Mohammed-sahib has failed because people never understood them. They were too great for the human mind. So the first thing I did was to study human beings for about forty-seven years of My age and I saw how complicated they were and then I found out this method of en masse Realization. There were many Sufis who got Realization. There were many Saints in India who got Realization, but very, very few. Also, among Christians, there were some who got Realization – Kahlil Gibran. But they were all tortured. (1995-09-19)

Audience: Inaudible. We have all grown up from Catholic education or Protestant education so apart from the bible what else should we be reading?

Shri Mataji: Must you read? Must you read? Better give up reading. As it is your eyesight is very weak. Better not read. What is the need to read? You read your sum, you read in Sahaja Yoga. What is the need to read? If you have to read, read Khalil Gibran, you read so many things of the Goddess. These things you must read if you have to read. But try to read less. I think you people are read, over read. First, it should be emptied then you should read something sensible. Because they read read read read read. They read too much in the west. Anything sells, whichever is printed. You should reduce reading. It is too much. I never read. I have no time to read anything. What is there to read? You can read within ourselves, there is a library within ourselves. (1982-02-06)

I would say that in Lebanon a great poet, like Kahlil Gibran, was born, and then in India we had so many such poets, who just lashed the society and lashed all these ideas of the intellectuals, the ideas of the religions, the ones who were trying to curb them. Because there was no genuineness, there was no sincerity. If we are honest people, we really mean it, then let us face it and see for ourselves what we have to achieve. (1985-11-28)

So when you are developed still you see the Kundalini rising, you see the pulsation in the triangular bone. You can see with your naked eye the pulsation here. You can with stethoscope – can see the pulsation just like the heart : “Lap, lap”. Going up to that point and you can see the beaking of this because the bones here become soft. You see it with your naked eyes but still you go on doubting about it. You still start analyzing it. It would be something like I give you a nice cake to eat and you sit down with your analysis. It’s so absurd as if an egg has to go to the library to find out how to fly or become a bird.

We had a great poet Kabir he said : “Padi, Padi pandit murakh bahe” meaning: “By reading these great educated people have become stupid.” He was very very straight. He has said by shaving your head or by wearing your crown if you can go to God then what about the sheep which is shaved twice a year? All such beautiful things he has said and then you start understanding the great poets like Khalil Gibran and all such poets which have reached the state of oneness with God. After Realization you share their joy and understand. (1980-04-29)

From Wikipedia

Kahlil Gibran (January 6, 1883 – April 10, 1931) was a Lebanese-American artist, poet, and writer.

Gibran was born in the town of Bsharri in the Mount Lebanon Mutasarrifate, Ottoman Empire (north of modern-day Lebanon), to Khalil Gibran and Kamila Gibran (Rahmeh). As a young man Gibran immigrated with his family to the United States, where he studied art and began his literary career, writing in both English and Arabic. In the Arab world, Gibran is regarded as a literary and political rebel. His romantic style was at the heart of a renaissance in modern Arabic literature, especially prose poetry, breaking away from the classical school. In Lebanon, he is still celebrated as a literary hero.

He is chiefly known in the English-speaking world for his 1923 book The Prophet, an early example of inspirational fiction including a series of philosophical essays written in poetic English prose. The book sold well despite a cool critical reception, gaining popularity in the 1930s and again especially in the 1960s counterculture. Gibran is the third best-selling poet of all time, behind Shakespeare and Laozi.
