Feedback from previous workshops

“It was a great help to me to feel calm.”

“Enjoyed the whole day, particularly singing the mantras. This really brought me into a conscious state.”

“My very first visit. Very relaxing, calming. Everyone was very welcoming, friendly.”

“The meditation was wonderful. I enjoyed the silence and calm in the way it was shown.”

“It was wonderful to see people from all these different backgrounds, ages, colours, together.”


But the greatest thing is the piercing of the Agnya Chakra which is described in all spiritual treatise, or may be called as the scriptures, that that is the door which is golden, which is like a cover, and no one can pass through that, so constricted is this door of Agnya Chakra. But Christ did cross that. His crossing has helped us today to open your Agnya. Without opening the Agnya you cannot go to Sahasrara. And this was done so easily in your case, only because Christ could go through all that torture and all that brutality, and crossed over. How much we should be indebted to Him, I don’t know words that can express, because He is the One who took lead in telling people that “You seek. You seek and you’ll find.” And then He says that “You have to come and bang at the door.” This is exactly what has happened in your case, that you have risen up to Agnya and then you have crossed beyond Agnya. This crossing of Agnya was not at all difficult for you, though by your own ideas of thinking and of conditioning, of the futuristic planning and all that, it was a big, big crowd, I should say, of very black clouds were hovering on the Agnya. Your thoughts were overpowering you, and you could not have penetrated through this Agnya which was all covered. But you did, and you never even felt that you have crossed the Agnya Chakra so easily.

The first of all, we all should really be very thankful to Christ for opening the Agnya for you. For Him all the tortures and all the brutality were nothing, because His purpose of life, His purpose of His advent, His incarnation, was to break the Agnya Chakra. Today you will find that even though your Agnya is opened out and you have crossed through, still you’ll be amazed that people get involved in the Agnya Chakra.

Shri Mataji

The thing is, true knowledge is a part and parcel of your being. It’s just within you. It is not some sort of a concrete stuff that you have read or you have understood, but it just has to become a light within you, and that light is there.

There’s no necessity for you to be very well-educated or to be very intelligent or to be very highly placed. It is not necessary. It is how your heart is clean. In the heart it resides. Imagine: all other knowledge resides in the brain, while the pure knowledge resides in the heart. It is very surprising.

But we do know also that our heart rules the head …. Unless and until your heart is clean, unless and until in your heart you have a beautiful image of a person who is very, very pure, you cannot – you cannot do anything mentally. From your heart, if you have to do, your heart has to be very clean and extremely wise. This is the point one has to jump into: that your heart, is it wise? For example, to get attached to someone too much, identified with someone too much, shows that your heart is not clean. It has so many bondages. Open your heart, fully.

And that’s why they say that the Goddess resides in the heart, in the centre heart. She resides in the centre heart because she is so balanced. She resides in the centre heart as Shakti [power], and she gives you all that you want.

Shri Mataji, Cabella, Italy, 27 September 1998
