i have no idea what SYs think about providing evidence of
Shri Mataji's divinity and message to humanity. This quote
from a disillusioned seeker may be helpful in gauging the
deep hole we are still digging ourselves into and, despite
three decades of Self-realization, do not seem to understand
and learn from endless failures:
"In the past year I have become increasingly aware of how
abuse in religious/spiritual organisations really is and
it's been quite an eye opener. Joseph Campbell has said that
humanity is entering the age of the spirit. Many social
norms and power structures seem to be breaking down and the
public appear increasingly cynical about our established
institutions. Perhaps we are entering a time of greater
authenticity and freedom, a time in which the truth about
matters is increasingly revealed. Although, the old patterns
are fighting hard for survival against the winds of change.
I agree with cp3 that the relationship between guru and
susceptible to many temptations and distortions. When Jesus
"Many will come claiming to be me, but don't follow them", I
was articulating a deep truth that the real master lies only
If SYs do not articulate the deep truth that the real master
lies only within there is no way of making progress. Sahaja
Yoga will retain its "What yoga is that?" status and Shri
Mataji an obscure "I have never heard of her" guru.
The problem is that i am having so much difficulty waking up
snoring dinosaur to face the formidable challenges of the
21st century. Why all this apathy and lack of co-operation
to articulate the deep truth that Shri Mataji Nirmala Devi
is the incarnation of Shri Lalita Devi, the Shakti within?
That reminds me of a joke i heard a few days ago that can be
improvised and cracked in many ways.
A group of dock workers were unloading a large shipment of
all over the world. One of them noticed that unlike the "Amma",
Baba", "Osho" and "Yogi Bhajan" brand of containers, only
the "SY" brand were not sealed. He was puzzled by this and
asked others why
the SY crabs, despite their containers not being sealed,
were not escaping to freedom .............. or were not
capable of doing so.
None knew the answer despite curious observation.
Then the foreman, seeing the workers idling, came around.
They gave him the reason for this unauthorized break and
sought answers from this experienced boss of the
He said it was due to a trait peculiar of SY crabs. Unlike
the Amma, Sai Baba, Osho and Yogi Bhajan crabs, who formed
pyramids so that others could climb and escape, SY crabs
pulled each other down. Thus there was never a need to seal
their containers to prevent them escaping.
i am sure Sanjay Talwar and others understand this joke
