Shri Mataji

Shri Mataji

Once you become the part and parcel of the whole, you do not feel that you are doing any good to others or you are obliging anyone because nobody is the other. If somebody feels this hand paining, the another hand soothes him. And what is the obligation? Who is the other that you are helping? You are helping yourself. So the feeling of other goes away. When you have the first stage of thoughtless awareness, then you watch everything without thinking, is Zen.

Now I see a beautiful piece here and I know it is not mine, so I have no headache of it. But when I watch it without thought, all the joy that was put into this to create this starts filling me up completely because there is no thought in between. Otherwise I would think, “How much will I pay for this? When will I get it? Where will I buy it?” But when I have no botheration like that and just enjoying without owning it.

Like a calm lake reflects all that is created around it, the joy of that, fully. In the same way, the calm mind, without any thought, reflects the joy of the creation. So the idea of my mind drops out, all the headaches of insurance drops out. But the greatest thing is that you start enjoying another person.

Shri Mataji, Munich, Germany, 9 May 1985

"Silence Your Mind" by Dr Ramesh Manocha

“Silence Your Mind”
by Dr Ramesh Manocha

A new book by Dr Ramesh Manocha, called “Silence Your Mind”, provides simple techniques for stopping incessant thoughts that may be interfering with your happiness and general functioning in life. Dr Manocha shares his own personal experiences that led to his interest in Sahaja Yoga meditation as a means of stilling the mind and experiencing the peace that comes when “mind chatter” stops and thoughtless awareness begins.

A leading researcher in the field of meditation and health, Dr Manocha explains in simple and very interesting terms the research that he has undertaken to study the effects of Sahaja Yoga meditation on medical conditions. These include epilepsy, Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder, menopausal symptoms and asthma.The book provides simple, easy-to-follow techniques to assist in silencing the mind and achieving peace of mind.

The book is available at book stores in Australia and as a Kindle e-book from Amazon. Click here for details.
