Lot has been written about Shri chakra and about Lalita chakra, but to understand fundamentally the left side when it reaches up to Vishuddhi, then it uses on the right side the Shri chakra, on the left side the Lalita chakra, to manifest itself. These two chakras are the ones who manifest all that you see. But these chakras are the ones who emit vibrations of different kinds, and because of their angularities, like if you have some sort of a cardboard attached with small, small holes of different colors and which rotates all the time, you get different colors. Also you can get different permutations and combinations. In the same way, different permutations and combinations are created, and that is how you get all the advantages of Sahaja Yoga. So these two chakras are very important….
Shri chakra on the right side, Lalita chakra on the left side, so what we are really worshipping today is Mahasaraswati power and Mahakali power, both put together. So now we started combining things, not individual. Now, these two energies are very important. Without the energy, without the power, nothing exists. …But these two powers give us lots of benefits even without realization. Whatever you see in this world created is done by these two chakras of the Adi Shakti. But here the power doesn’t move. It’s not moving. But in the human being the power start moving. And when it starts moving, then we can say it is creating another world. But movement is not the only thing. This power acts, gives you intelligence, gives you all kinds of things which you have as human beings. But later on this power itself becomes enlightened within you when the left and right side both become enlightened. This enlightenment, you get it when you get your Self-realisation*, but not immediately, not immediately.
….. But the play of these chakras have to come. And that is why you have to use your power of your hands. If you cannot use your hands then you cannot impart this energy. Many people have asked Me that, “Mother, when will it move horizontal?” It will move horizontal, no doubt. It does. But even that horizontal movement is to be guided by these two very important chakras. So you must understand the importance of these two chakras within yourself….It’s a very simple thing to be understood that they are the most important chakras we have, and whatever is to be used out of this Paramachaitanya they have to be used by these two centers. Even supposing your some chakra is catching on your spinal chord, you have to use your hands. Somebody can say, “I can just put my attention.” Doesn’t work out that good. Because yet your attention has not that reached that stage where these chakras, like Lalita chakra and Shri chakra, obey your attention. They do not. So you have to work out with your hands.
