Six Enemies of our Soul

Thanks for joining in today's meditation on removing the six enemies of the soul, and a prayer to restore our soul (Psalm 23) from the damage inflicted by those six enemies.

The East Coast morning meditation will now be weekdays-only, since there have been very low numbers for Sunday mornings. I myself would like to sleep in after a late night with local collective on Saturdays, so let's attend the West Coast morning meditations on the weekends at 8:30am Eastern Time (US/Canada). 5:30 am meditations will continue for East Coast on weekdays. JSM!

You can certainly meditate with any of the recordings of the morning meditations at the video archive collections for east coast morning meditation recordings or west coast morning meditation recordings pages.

Give priority to the subtle body - Kabir

Knowledge that makes us clever, delights the mind and makes us arrogant is impressive. Knowledge that brings true humility, grace and permanence is indeed pure knowledge.

Today we shared a meditation and an ancient song. Thanks to Pushpa who meditates with us online, deeper meanings and messages were uncovered, that relate to our subtle system. 

The meditation was simply to experience the bliss of the word 'Nirmala'

Now, Nirmala, you'll be all called as Nirmalites. Means the ones who have been enlightened by Nirmala. It goes light, the word light goes very well with you people because you are enlightened. Others are just lights without any flame. So, this is Nirmalites, means the ones who are being enlightened by Nirmala. -  1985-0112: Talk before Puja, Mumbai

The bhajan involves Kabir-das advising seekers of truth to take more care of their subtle body, giving it priority over the gross body. The subtle body needs attention and awareness. He talks of the chakras, the 10 gurus within us and the main channels of the subtle system. But he laments the ruination of the subtle system by those who call themselves holy men, religious leaders and such. The way he recommends we 'wear' our subtle body and awareness is 'just the way we were granted it'. i.e. one meaning is that we keep it the way it was at birth - pure. Another meaning could be, we simply witness our subtle system the way it is being kept by the highest force.

Here are the words and translation line by line:

Oh it is subtle, the one you wear all day, is subtle!It purifies when washed in the name of GodContainer of the eight lotusesBinding the 5 elements with the ropes of the three channels.Built on the 10 foundations of the guru, by the guru SaiThe threads have been pressed to get a tight weave.When worn by the so-called holy men,That subtle cloth is surely soiled.I Kabir, wear it with great care and awareness, witnessing it, 
Not interfering with the way the Lord chooses to keep it for me.

Negativity: Avoid or Fight?

CS Lewis (Narnia Books) introspected about negativity in the introduction to the classic "Screwtape Letters" book, "There are two equal and opposite errors into which our race can fall about the devils. One is to disbelieve in their existence. The other is to believe, and to feel an excessive and unhealthy interest in them."

The talk we meditated upon this morning addressed negativities openly affecting seekers at the time. The subtle negativity discussed has been affecting humans since the dawn of time. The best option the six enemies have is not to fight us but make us forget they exist, making their task easier.

Happy Meditating!

Sea of Changes

Today's meditation featured a unique, one of a kind talk by Shri Mataji about the reform in Soviet Russia undertaken by Gorbachev and the need for a similar review of extreme libertarianism in the west for achieving balance. The talk us untitled and undated, but extremely unique, and a must listen:

Daily Morning Meditation: Guilt-Free, Loving-Protection, Authenticity and Freedom

What are the basic human rights that make our existence on earth joyful?

Did you think of a few things?

Now think, what could be some basic spiritual rights, rights bestowed upon us as human beings? Things that no one can or should stop us from achieving? The qualification being simply, our human birth? This morning's meditation covered those basic human spiritual rights aspects that are granted to us by the grace of Shri Mataji, through self-realization:

  • Guilt free living
  • Being radiant in truth, through a strong spiritual connection
  • Being liberated from the bondages of the six enemies: cutting the leash that the six enemies tie around our necks for their devious purposes
  • Being protected, feeling secure through the shield of protection that is granted to us by the Devi Kavach

Bhavasagara: The Void Within

Today's meditation was with Mother's talk in 1991

We heard the first 20 minutes or so. The take home message for me was the importance of valuing divinity and working out our imperfections, because hiding them just delays our improvement. Sooner or later, those around us will be disillusioned in us because of our lack of depth. What was your take away message?

People Get Ready, The Train is Coming

The train metaphor is somehow inspiring to modern songwriters in devotional music, even western devotional. Listening to Rod Stewart, of all people, sing "People Get Ready, The Train is Coming" gave chills and a great enjoyment of the train metaphor. In the eastern spiritual tradition of sahaja yoga, Kishore Chaturvedi introduced a piece of modern folk music, that also rides the train metaphor.

The lyrics are simple, yet deep. For instance, in one stanza, allusions are made to checked baggage, which is out of site for the passenger of life, but should not be forgetten to be pick it up at baggage claim at the end of the journey. Similarly, those who resort to guilt, rather than self correction, store their bad karma baggage by checking it out of sight in the left part of the vishuddhi chakra (left shoulder/throat junction). But guilt will come back and bite the spiritual seeker, unless it is faced and gotten rid of, along your journey by self-correction.

Here is a snippet of this delightful song, we got singing at a meditaiton gathering in Pittsburgh. Excuse the missed notes and beats... this spontaneous rendering, with interludes from memory are not studio quality, but heartwarming.

Watch Kishore Chaturvedi, the artiste himself, playing the melody on a real flute, and singing a stanza at the end:

Subject: [SY UK] Live Broadcast from Japanese Collective Puja


I've been talking to Hitoshi from the Japanese collective. 

In the wake of recent events in Japan, they have asked for our
collective attention.

They will be broadcasting a small puja live tomorrow 1pm JST. Because
Japan is 9 hours ahead, this does mean that it would take place at 4am
UK time! However, as many of you know it's a nice time to meditate -
very still and quiet! We all know that in the early days, Shri Mataji
used to get Sahaja Yogis to meditate in the early hours. It would be a
wonderful way to witness the powers that Shri Mataji has vested in us.
It's amazing how technology has the power to unite us and make the one
Universal Pure Religion!

If you can't make it up in time, could you please give a Bhandhan for

Jai Shri Mataji!


We decided to perform small puja.

We are going to start the program tomorrow from about 13h JST.
