Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart
You also realize which music is Divine, because your esthetics become subtler. We have a little boy at My host place who is a Realized Soul, he is a born Realized person and he is a very intelligent boy, he is hardly three years of age. And he discriminates music very well. He likes Mozart because Mozart was a Realized Soul. And I played a radio to him and I asked him, "Is it good?" He said, "No, this is not Mozart." (Laughter) Even your queen who lived during the time of Mozart was a Realized Lady, perhaps you do not know about her. There have been so many great Realized Souls, but like Wagner was not a Realized Soul and it's a headache to listen to him for a Realized Soul.
The other day I said that Mozart was a born realized. So they said, "How do we know?" I said, "Just put your hands and think of Mozart", and immediately tremendous vibrations start flowing. When such realized souls play any music or paint any paintings, for a realized personality it is the greatest source of joy - because you don't think about it. But the essence of the creator of that joy becomes one with yours. You feel the bliss flowing in you. And you enjoy it only for joy's sake because Spirit is the joy within you.
Mozart was a realized soul. When I listen to music of Mozart, I cannot think. I feel only the joy of its creation that's flowing in My being and enriching Me.

We have people like William Blake, Shakespeare, Tennyson, great people, tremendous people, Mozart, this, that, lots of people in this country also. Taking their names itself liberates vibrations. In those conditions, single-handed they created their own ideals. Just think of them, how they must have fought this horrible... it is only today that we accept him, who accepts these people?
If I say Michelangelo was a realized soul, you can feel it. If I say Mozart was a realized soul, you can feel it. If I say that Maria Theresa, the queen, was a realized soul, you can feel it. Your hands act like the antennae of a computer.
We cannot have people like Mozart nowadays, we can't have anyone like Michelangelo, we cannot have any artists who can create beautiful things, we do not have beautiful buildings now - horrible, plastics. We cannot have beautiful, artistic clothes. Everything is becoming plastic and for which we are working so very hard to create plastic mountains.
These days there's no question, no government is willing to support the artist. You know that Mozart was called by the queen herself to play before her. So the governments were not only looking after the collection of taxes but they were looking after the artists, musicians, painters and people who did creative art.
So many poets like William Blake, Wordsworth, Milton and also your poets, so many here who were realized souls. Even in other countries, who were realized souls, never went to any college, never went to any university but wrote such great things. If they are born realized, like Mozart, from childhood they are geniuses.
Mozart was a realized soul. I mean there, so many people were realized souls, but nobody knew about them, they were effective because they were above all that, and they created these tremendous things because they were one with the Divine Power that is creative, that is not only creative it is protective, it is the one that thinks, that understands, co-ordinates, co-operates and works out.
This is what we have to understand. We had Mahatma Gandhi in India. Can we produce another Mahatma Gandhi? We had Shivaji in Maharashtra. Can we produce another Shivaji? As if they are all legendary people. We had Maxim Gorki. Can we produce another one like him in Russia? Or even Lenin. We have had in England people like Shakespeare. Can we have another one to replace him? Art. We had Michelangelo. Can we have another one nearer him? Music. We had Mozart. Can you replace him today? Anybody can beat him? In the West, I am talking about. We had Garibaldi. Can we have another Garibaldi? We cannot. So the quality has gone down definitely. And no hope. So this is the only hope we have, that we’ll create out of Sahaja Yogis all these great people again. All right? Let us go to something pleasant.
Some of Mozart's most famous pieces
Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart (27 January 1756 – 5 December 1791) was a prolific and influential composer of the Classical era, born in Salzburg. Mozart showed prodigious ability from his earliest childhood. He was competent on keyboard and violin by age five, and he composed from the age of five and performed before European royalty.
At 17, Mozart was engaged as a musician at the Salzburg court, but grew restless and traveled in search of a better position. While visiting Vienna in 1781, he was dismissed from his Salzburg position. He chose to stay in the capital, where he achieved fame but little financial security. During his final years in Vienna, he composed many of his best-known symphonies, concertos, and operas, and portions of the Requiem, which was largely unfinished at the time of his death. The circumstances of his early death have been much mythologized. He was survived by his wife Constanze and two sons.
He composed more than 600 works, many acknowledged as pinnacles of symphonic, concertante, chamber, operatic, and choral music. He is among the most enduringly popular of classical composers, and his influence is profound on subsequent Western art music. Ludwig van Beethoven composed his own early works in the shadow of Mozart, and Joseph Haydn wrote that "posterity will not see such a talent again in 100 years".
