Shri Krishna - Virata Puja, Sept 5th 1999
The power of the Virat becomes so tremendous, it acts globally.
“The Vishuddhi chakra is where Shri Krishna resides, but when He rises to your Sahasrara, when He rises to that level, then He becomes Virata. So the Virata’s chakra is placed in the head above the Agnya, and this Virat is the form of Shri Krishna who has risen above the Agnya. When you are risen above the Agnya, you become a part and parcel of Virata’s land, we can say, because unless and until you are above your ego, you are still involved with yourself and with wrong ideas of maryadas. But when you rise above that and you become the Virat, the great, then you are in the land of Virata. And the Virata’s powers are tremendous, as been seen by Arjuna - the form of Virat. The power of Virat becomes so tremendous that it acts globally. It acts in such a manner that you sit here and anywhere it can act… The power of Virata is that it can penetrate into the subtle side of human beings in such a manner that everything we are is connected. We are not separated and every drop is connected with the ocean. We are connected with the whole universe. And when you become a citizen of the Virat, then all the things with which you are connected also get your vibrations, your ideas, your ambitions. Everything passes through that and it works. You have seen how many miracles have taken place in your lives. It is the Virata shakti that works.”
H.H. Shri Mataji, Shri Krishna - Virata Puja, Sept 5 th 1999.
“…The last is the Virat. That is the state you have to reach...Once you get into Virata, then all your ideas of separating, or differentiating goes out. You do not have any more ideas of races left, of nationality, of your city, of your village, or anything. At that stage, you don’t belong to any place. You belong to every place and you don’t belong to every place… Nothing bothers you because you are in the Virata state. Because everything is absorbed by the Virata … you do not feel anything. Whatever sort of person you may be, you do not feel it. The Virata has to suffer, not you, and that is what is the best state where I want all of you to reach and to become absolutely free. Nothing can impress you. Nothing can influence you, nothing can dissuade you, but you stand on your self esteem and understanding about yourself, that you are a Sahaja Yogi and that you are connected with this power, and you are a citizen of Kingdom of God …
The whole attention should move like that. “This is not only mine, it is everybody’s. It belongs to everyone. Everybody has a right.” That sort of a thing, when it starts growing from individual, what we call vestiti tu sumestiti in Sanskrit, which is from individual to collective. Such a personality is then the most effective one for any kind of collective work…So we must try to rise above the Vishuddhi, the discretion part, then at that point we can never doubt Sahaja Yoga, can never doubt, and that’s how the doubtless awareness can come to us.”
