Today we have assembled here to celebrate the birth of Christ. When you think of his birth one knows that he was born in a very humble place and all his life he lived in a very humble way.
Also as Sahaja Yogis you know that he was the incarnation of Shri Ganesha, which is in a sense his innocence and he was crucified due to the stupid understanding of blind people. He was the eternal child, and is so sad that when we talk about Christ and Christianity we feel that Christianity has gone just other way round on the other side of Christ.
If one is construction, then another is destruction, and if one is innocence another is cunning. If you see the Christian nations its very surprising where we have got Christianity in it’s practice is very surprising that innocence has no place, no respect, chastity has no place no respect, which was the essence of Christ. He was made of it. It is sometimes shocking how these so called Christian nations have maligned Christ to that extent, and how they have ruined so many people with their stupid ideas of allowing people to indulge into all kinds of filthy things.
And the second point is very important to see how he was born in a very humble abode, he lived in a very humble way, he was a son of a carpenter so he lived like a carpenter. But, in the Western life people are so materialistic and to them to live lavishly to show off their wealth and to plunder people, to plunder countries after countries for material gain is a common thing. They do not feel also that it is wrong, and they are quite proud of it. And the third great thing about Christ, was that he wanted people to love each other and to be humble. But the arrogance and the cruelty that one has seen of the Christian nations one cannot understand how are they anywhere near Christ.
He has said about “Blessed are those who are meek”. Where are those meek people living? Not in the Western countries, not in the countries where Christ is worshipped, where temples are raised in his honour and have been worshipping the Mother for so many years. What a sinful thing it is to do to Christ. Is the greatest sin that we say that we are following Christ, and to do all these horrible things, all such people have to go to hell of the worst type, no doubt about it. They may not realise, but they are already getting into it, they are already having this problem. They are worst than people who crucified Christ, this is everyday crucifixion. So it’s a great occasion today to celebrate the birth of Christ who came on this earth to help us in our resurrection, to talk about the Holy Ghost. He was bearing all the brunt of the people, everything, but the outcome of that life is so horrifying, that sometimes I get worried that I hope they don’t make something out of me like that. Is such a stupid ideas people have in the West, that for any sensible man he can see the way they’re emotional, romantic, nonsensical.
They have no respect for this, and to follow Christ with that kind of an attitude is, I think is, they have no business, they have no right. But it has happened. Now you people are born again, as Christ has said you have to be born again. You have achieved that state which Christ was talking about. You are the special type of people, I never had such hopes I must say. The first encounter was so horrible that I didn’t think that many will come out of it, but so many of you have come out of it and have really glorified the name of Christ no doubt about it, and keep it up. I would request you now to know that you are Sahaja Yogis, and that you are the followers of Christ, you are the Gnostics as described, you are the ones who know, and thats how you have to tell people to emancipate. It is very surprising that I saw that the Western life, the stupid, destructive ideas did not kill the innocence. Like the clouds all these affectations were there but once the Kundalini rose the innocence started expressing itself, but still I would say that this kind of lovely dovey stuff must be given up. It is just most un-Christian because if you see his life was a life of a tapasvi. A man who lived in a very detached manner, in nishanga. So for Sahaja Yogis coming from a Christian life have to understand if they have to get rid of it they should be like that. But on the contrary see the interest in marriages, the interest in all this kind of thing and after marriage is a bit too much. Is so much in it, I mean its absurd, its absurd in Sahaja Yoga. Its one of the lifestyles, is alright one of the paths, is not everything and it covers the whole entire personality of a Christian personality. Not with Muslims or Hindus I have seen that, but I’m married too. This doesn’t cover my whole entire being with it. How can it? And that’s the problem is that once marriage system starts anything starts oh, it’s become so important. And I am faced with problems all the time. Marriages performed then letters will be coming, this has happened to my marriage, they must get married, nobody is such that supposing now one has finished live without marriage, they cannot do it. Just can’t live. Christ never got married. They cannot have that tapasvita in them, and they depend so much, they’ll ruin their wives, they’ll ruin their husbands, they’ll ruin Sahaja Yoga, they’ll take them away. But its something surprising, the importance of Sahaja Yoga is so minimised by this Christian mind, I don’t know from where these ideas have come to. It’s a juxtaposition as you can call it, juxtaposition. There is no similarity between the life Christ must have thought people would lead and the people are leading. So it is necessary for Sahaja Yogis to have a dignity and a sense and to know that they are grounded in Sahaja Yoga and marriage and all those things are just subsidiary. Is not the end of life. And when I see that happening I’m rather surprised in Sahaja Yoga.
