This is a poem written by H.H. Shri Mataji Nirmala Devi after her return from her first trip to the United States many years ago as patron of the Sahaja Yoga method of attaining self-awareness through meditation: She had been disturbed that her
message of being able to bring about global peace through achieving individual
balance and enlightenment through meditation fell on deaf ears in the United
States. American culture believes that you get what you pay for and you pay for
what you get. In other words, the more you pay for something, the better that
thing is, be it material or spiritual. Shri Mataji's teachings are free because
she does not believe anyone has the right to ask money for awakening somebody's
God-given spirit, a spiritual energy that exists in all of us (dormant in the
Sacrum bone) regardless of race, religion, age or gender. Her teachings have
brought enlightenment and a profound sense of joy, balance and fulfilment to
over 5 million people in 82 countries. She is also a well-respected ambassador
for global peace and regularly addresses world leaders, military chiefs and the
You are angry with life Like small children Whose Mother is lost in
Darkness Your sulk expressing despair At the fruitless end of your journey You
wear Ugliness to discover Beauty You name everything false in the name of Truth
You drain out emotions to fill the cup of Love My sweet children, my darling How
can you get peace by waging war With yourself, with your being, with joy itself
Enough are your efforts of renunciation The artificial mask of consolation Now
rest in the petals of the lotus flower In the lap of your gracious Mother I will
adorn your life with beautiful blossoms And fill your moments with joyful
fragrance I will anoint your head with Divine Love For I cannot bear your
torture anymore Let me engulf you in the ocean of joy So you lose your being in
the Greater one Who is smiling in your calyx of Self Secretly hidden to tease
you all the while Be aware and you will find Him Vibrating your every fibre with
blissful joy Covering the whole Universe with light.
Shri Mataji's style of
yoga and self realization is taught at Saglikli Yasam Dernegi branches in
Ankara, Istanbul, Antalya, Bursa, Izmir and northern Cyprus. Shri Mataji will
come to Istanbul at the end of March or beginning of April to give talks and
enlightenment to anyone who wishes it. It is hoped the Culture or Health
Ministry or even the Foreign Ministry will invite her to Ankara in her capacity
either as an ambassador for peace or as a world-renowned spiritual teacher.
