Where: Hawkesbury Campus, University of Western Sydney, Richmond
How to get there: If travelling by train, get off at East Richmond station (one stop before Richmond). The University campus is a 15-20 minute walk from East Richmond station.

It is a very unique thing that has happened, that your Sahasraras were opened out. There were very few people in this whole world. There were some Sufis, there were some saints, some other people also in China, I know, but very few. Very few got their Sahasrara opened out. So whatever they said or wrote was never understood by the people. They actually tortured them. They crucified them and did all kinds of horrible things because they couldn’t bear somebody getting this realisation…
So nowadays the world is full of turmoil, as you see, full of nonsensical people coming up, full of quarrelsome people. Dominating people are overpowering. At this time, if you just see this in the witness state, this will disappear because you are very powerful. But you must know, first of all, that you must have the equipment to use the power. If you have the equipment within you, you can do it. But with your ego you cannot.
Ego is the greatest hurdle for your ascent. You can see that ego is at a place where you have to just cross to go to the Sahsrara. And to break the Sahasrara is very easy otherwise. But if there is ego, you are already lost in that ego. So against all this, one has to understand to “watch yourself”. Is it egoistical? What does it think about itself? Ego is very limited. It makes you limited and you do not see the purpose of your life. Why have you become a realised soul? You do not understand. You just are involved in your own affairs, in your family, in your children, in your something like that – very low. But if you have, if you have a ego-less temperament, then you are very effective; the whole power works. What I have seen, the power of Sahasrara is so great. In some people it has worked wonders…
Now, as it is, I am here to tell you about it. In those days when these saints came in, nobody was there to guide them, to tell them anything. On the contrary, they were so much destroyed by the surroundings, and people never understood why they did not have any ego, why they were so humble; so they were misused. But now you have powers. You must know how to use your powers. But that should not give you, by any chance, any ego that you have powers. On the contrary, you should be humble. You have the power to be humble and you can be humble…

It is the love that you give and the love that you receive, which is not a love which is entangled into anything with any purpose, with any idea. But just to feel that love, pure love within yourself and within others is the greatest gift of the Divine. All other things are useless.
Shri Mataji, Delhi, 21 March 1996
If you think that by standing on your heads or paying me some money you can achieve your realisation, I am sorry that this is not the shop that sells it. This is a gift from God. It is a grace of God which is bestowed upon you, which you have to receive. As you have received everything else, you are going to receive it also.
Shri Mataji, London, 30 June 1979
You must know one thing, that I cannot take anything from you. I cannot receive. My nature is not to receive, but just to give. So you take it from me; it is a gift. Just take it and have it and enjoy it. This what you have been seeking, not in this life, but many lives before. And the time has come and the chance has come.
Shri Mataji, Cabella, Italy, 10 September 1995
On 21 February 2011, Sahaja Yoga in South Africa held the first school realisation program for the year at Mount Edgecombe Private School in Phoenix, a suburb of Durban. Two programs were held: one for Grades 4 to 12 children and one for Grades R to 3 children.
The realisation session for Grade 4 to Grade 12 (200 children) was conducted in a cool enclosed area on the lawn. The Deputy Principal and teachers were most accommodating and made the Sahaja yogis feel very welcome. A student led the assembly with “Our Father” (The Lord’s Prayer).
At first, Lincoln spoke about the current problems students are exposed to, such as drugs, alcohol and peer pressure. He also spoke about the benefits of Sahaja Yoga meditation. Kasthurie conducted the realization session, after which everyone felt the Cool Breeze.
The children and teachers enjoyed the session and were very grateful for getting this information.
The second session was for Grade R to Grade 3 (300 children). Because they were little ones Lincoln decided not to do his introduction bit. So after being introduced by the head of this section, the Self-realisation session was conducted by Kasthurie. Rina did the concluding session.
This was done under a huge beautiful old tree – a setting that made one feel like being in a village in India, where the saints gathered to share their knowledge with all who were interested in learning about God.
This was a wonderful start for the Sahaja Yoga School Programs in South Africa in 2011. These programs are being carried out by a dedicated band of Sahaja yogis who give freely of their time to help children and teachers in schools understand about Sahaja Yoga meditation.
