Shri Adi Shakti Puja and more

Last Saturday, we had a beautiful Shri Adi Shakti Puja at Seberang Jaya, north of Malaysia, about 4 hours drive from KL. Everything was really good, but unfortunately, I didn't charge the battery of my camera, so I didn't take any photos.

I would like to share a speech made by Babamama, Shri Mataji's brother, which has really opened my heart, answered some of my questions. It is really a wonderful talk.

The following is a beautiful talk by Baba Mama, Shri Mataji's beloved brother who brought the creative arts, especially music, to the forefront in the Sahaj family. He encouraged and inspired Sahaj Yogis to greater and greater creative heights. One can say he was the embodiment of music in Sahaja Yoga.

Expectations
(Chaitaya Mela, Maharashtra Sahaja Yoga Seminar, Nagpur 1999)


You believe that God is omnipresent, omnipotent and all-pervading. In fact, you believe that He is in every atom. As natural corollary of this belief you must also know that God knows what you want or what your need is. If the first proposition is true, then second proposition has to be true. It would follow, therefore, that those who know that God is omnipotent and all-pervading are bound to accept that God is all-knowledgeable and therefore is aware of all your problems.
In spite of this fact, we always go to God with certain expectations. Expectations can be of various types, but are basically self-centered or are pertaining to people or relations you are attached to, and then you pray to God tha t He should grant you a particular relief, or a job promotion, or some benefit to you or your near ones, etc. When you go with this frame of mind, then most of the time you are disappointed. Hypothetically speaking, if your expectations are symolized in A and what you get is, let us say, B; then A minus B is your disappointment. And then you have to attribute this disappointment to someone. The pessimists will attribute it to their bad luck and will always curse themselves for not being worthy of God's favor. The optimists will straight away blame God Himself, and they say that this God is not good and that we should shift to some other God. In this way you keep on shifting from God to God, but disappointment is always there. This may even make you anti-God and an atheist, ultimately. Now take a case where you do not go to God with any expectations. Therefore, the expectations are zero, and let us say that you get B as the reward. Therefore, B minus zero is B which is always surplus.

You should also distinguish between your expectations and desires and pure desires. Pure desire is always for the benefit of the other, and therefore you are entitled to carry pure desires to the Divinity. I once remember, I was traveling with Shri Mataji from Sydney to Canberra and it was very hot and the air conditioning of the car was thoroughly inadequate. Shri Mataji was sweating and I was fanning Her with a newspaper, but I somehow felt that the heat was oppressive and that the weather should give some respite to Her. Reading my mind, She asked me a question as to what I was thinking, to which I told Her frankly that I was unable to see Her suffer because of heat. So She told me that I should make a pure desire and the weather would change. So I closed my eyes and made a Pure desire that the weather should change. Within five minutes, dark clouds gathere d from nowhere and it started raining, and the intensity of heat was thus reduced and Shri Mataji said, "See, if you make a pure desire then it will always be fulfilled."

Coming back to expectations, I may mention here that once you are connected to your divinity through your Self Realization, you should feel assured that you have been admitted into the Kingdom of God, that you are His subject and therefore He is duty-bound to look after you, irrespective of what you expect of Him. So please do not expect when you are in Sahaja. Only pray to Shri Mataji that She should make you what She wants you to be.

With all my blessings,
Baba Mama

How to make yogurt with EasiYo Yogurt Maker with and without the sachets

Disclaimer:  This is not an advertisement.

First Attempt After months of not looking paying attention to what I have been putting into my stomach, GERD came back few weeks ago.  Thank God it wasn't that bad.  Just 1 puking session and that's it.
Since then, I have been very careful at the food I am putting into my mouth, looking out for trigger food and what's good for GERD.
Found that actually yogurt is very good for GERD.  So, long story short, I invested in EasiYo Yogurt Maker.
Actually, before that, I was thinking of ways to make my own yogurt.  I did it before and it was successful.  But after reading reviews on EasiYo Yogurt Maker and so many said it's good and easy and the yogurt was super delicious, in the end, I was in.  RM139 with starter pack.

You can find this in selected Carings and Vitacare pharmacy.  I bought mine at Damansara Uptown.
1. First put room temperature water or cold water into the EasiYo yogurt container.  Fill it half way through only.

2. The…

Matka pot treatment - Night 1

I started the matka pot treatment last night.  Been feeling a lot of left agnya catch lately, so thought that it is high time to do a matka pot treatment.  Here is what we need:
7 limes (I heard in Belgium, they used 7 lemons, so the pot that they used is so big and they have a hard time trying to dispose the pot after the 7 nights).  Cut the top of the limes to expose a bit of the flesh.
7 chillies.  Remove the top of the chillies (I don't know what you call, stem or stalk).  I used small chillies so that they can fit into the matka pot.
1 matka pot (here in Malaysia we used claypot that they cooked claypot rice, glazed inside so that it will not leak)
Vibrated water
So, you put everything into the pot and vibrate in front of Shri Mataji's photo.  Pray that the matka pot will absorb all the catches and negativities.  Then place it on the left side of the bed.  I put it under the bed but you can also put it on a side table on your left side.  Just be careful not to spill the …

Information for pregnant Sahaja Yoginis

I have decided to gather all information for pregnant Sahaja Yoginis here.  This is probably not conclusive, so please feel free to add on if you have anymore inputs.  To read more about it, please go to amruta.org.  
I guess the experience varies from individual to individual.  But I was very sensitive to vibrations and negativity when I was in my first trimester.  So much so that sometimes I have to do 2-3 times footsoak in a row in order to feel better.  But it gets better in the second trimester.

As for havan, I was told that pregnant ladies can attend havan but have to sit far from the fire and don't sit too long.  This was advice by the Vashi doctors.  But my own experience, in which I attended one havan, I didn't feel good after that.  It's just my personal feelings about it as I was ultra-sensitive.  But I read some yoginis wrote that pregnant ladies should not attend havan altogether.  So, it really depends.  I guess you could always check vibrations to find out…
