William Blake and Sahaja Yoga

Fourteen thousand years back in India the originator of the astrology in India called as Brighu Muni has predicted that such a system will start in 1970. Actually he didn't write 1970 he wrote according to Indian calendar. But three hundred years back another Indian called Swami Bhagendar transcribed it and said that it had to start in 1970.

Sahaja Yoga started in 1970. Also it was said that in this new method of Sahaja Yoga, thousands of people will get awakening of the Kundalini in a sahaja way, in a spontaneous way, and that you will not have to work hard for it or to do any kind of penance - tapasharya. This was predicted so far as that that after some time when such yogis will be created on this earth that there will be no need of hospitals. It has gone even further, it's quite a long thing but I'm just telling you that it has been predicted a long time back.

But only hundred of years back, a great seer known as William Blake was born in England. In a book called Milton, he has identified Milton with a seeker. And he has said so clearly about Sahaja Yoga that it is really surprising that such a seer was born in England. He has said that the men of God will become prophets and these prophets will have powers to make others prophets. He has even given exact places where I would be living. First we were living in Surrey Hills. He has written that the first would be lit in Surrey Hills. And there's a second house which he has described, he has described it that it will be on the Tyburn brook, behind the Kensington Gardens. Now My, this house is exactly there.

Also he has described how he called them 'Golden Builders" because the Sahaja yogis have come and painted My house with gold somewhere in the . The first ashram of Sahaja Yoga was started in Lambeth's Vale where I laid the foundation for the and it was a house bombed in the war. He has written that the foundations will be laid in Lambeth's Vale in a house which is broken down up to this limit: that her sinews will vibrate the divine.

It's very remarkable the way this great poet has described Sahaja Yoga in England. He has retaliated against all industrial troubles and industrial problems very strongly. And he's lashed [?] all the crookery and the immorality of the people of England. And he had said that we have to build Jerusalem in this land of England. Look at his aspirations and his understanding of the future!

This is what is a seer. And you become a seer after your realization. A seer is a person who sees but does not react, does not absorb. It just sees as a witness and the whole thing is like a play. He does not do anything himself, but his presence itself is auspicious and it works out goodness. It is difficult in these modern times to talk about auspiciousness, holiness or divine miracles.

When we believe in Christ we must know that He has shown so many miracles Himself by curing people. But He did not do stupid miracles like taking out a ring or giving some sort of an ash into your hand. A seer can live in a palace or live in a hut. He is a king because he is innately a king, like the sun does not need any light.

This state can be achieved through the awakening of the Kundalini and in India perhaps everyone knows about it. Even the Christians had this knowledge. As I told you yesterday that Kundalini is to be awakened but as we have lost many things we have also lost this knowledge. But still in the Bible you find sentences like, "I will appear before you like tongues of flames."

These centers are - they look like tongues of flames all living tongues of flames, but very silently moving. And the last center that you see there Sahasrara actually looks like a petal, many petaled, thousand-petaled lotus, but it is like many flames of many colors very silent sometimes closing down and sometimes opening

But seeing the chakra is not being inside the chakra. Like you are standing outside this building, you can see the whole building, but when you are inside you just see the inside. So those who have seen the chakras have moved their attention from one sympathetic to another sympathetic and have gone out.

Supposing a tree is sick, so you cannot enter in to a tree's being through the leaves or through the branches, but you have to pass through the sap into the roots. So no use treating any particular leaf or any particular flower, the best thing is to go through the roots. So the Kundalini is the root and the lower center than that which is the center of your innocence is the support of this root. This is the center of your innocence and this center is governed by a deity which is an eternal child. The energy of this deity is innocence.

Now the same deity incarnates on this earth as Lord Jesus Christ. He is described much better in the chapters of Mahavishnu of Devi Mahatmyam. When His father blessed Him that He should be born on this earth and that He should be the support of the universe, His father told Him and He had a very difficult task to perform. His body was made of the Brahma itself - the all-pervading power. There was no earth element in it. No elements were there. Only this all-pervading power, this abstract had taken that form, and when He came on this earth the greatest task He had to do that He had to pass through that gap which you see where Ego and Super Ego are crossing as the position of pituitary and pineal body.

That's why, when He was crucified, His body was resurrected: because He had no body. So crucifixion gave Him a position in our Agnya Chakra here by which He died and came out of it between these two very tightly crossing, these Ego and Super Ego.

So His resurrection is the message for us. On the Easter Day we give eggs to people as presents and we do not know is the meaning of that is. But actually in the Devi Mahatmyam is described that first He was an egg, a special egg. And half of Him remained as it is, because He formed the lower Chakra and the half of it became Mahavishnu - that is Christ.

That is the same thing is that the egg becomes the bird by resurrection. And that is why the egg is given to us: to show that we have to become birds. In Sanskrit language a bird is called as dwijaha and also a Brahmin - one who is a realized soul, twice born - is also called dwijaha. Because the bird comes out of the egg in one life time, so it has a double life, means it's a twice born. And also a human being first is an egg because it's a closed [process?] you can see the Ego and Super Ego [closing down]. And when the bird is ready the shell is broken here and out of the egg comes out the bird.

So a Brahmin, or a person who knows the Brahma, the all-pervading power, is also twice born - dwijaha.

That's the same thing is that we are to be born again. Christ has clearly said that "You are to be born again." I mean, there cannot be more clear statement than that. But what we do is to get some priest from some theological college who is not a realized soul and he artificially puts the water on the fontanel bone. The Kundalini doesn't move. There is no awakening, you don't see any movement of the Kundalini. Nothing happens. Only we celebrate the baptism by having champagne. How we believe into such things!
