YOGA IS NOT DEAD


Yoga is not a dead organization. It is a living process, absolutely a living process. When it is a living process, you cannot do anything about it, so it is Sahaja. At the most, you can a little bit chip it here and there and push it around and all that. If a tree is coming up – like in Japan, they want to give it a shape, then they will cut one branch first and bend it a little more. Then cut another one and bend it this way, that way and give it a shape. But whatever is living is working out spontaneously within us, with many complicated organizations which are living themselves and are aware of what they are doing. For example, your body is much more aware of Me than your rationalities. (11 November 1979)
