Shri Mataji’s advice regarding certain health issues


Advice given by H.H.Shree Mataji Nirmala Devi:

“Fever is caused to those whose liver is out or who has over worked his liver. He gets heated up. It can be corrected by putting ice on the liver. Malarial fevers are right sided, ie. mosquito bites. Bacterial fevers are left sided. These are mainly due to certain food such as fungus, like mushrooms, old paneer, etc.”

(Shivaratri 1987)


Advice given by H.H.Shree Mataji Nirmala Devi:

“If you suffer from headaches and you pray to Jesus Christ to forgive all those who have put you in trouble, you will be cured of your headache without the aid of any medicines. However, before such a thing can happen, you have to awaken your Kundalini by accepting Sahaja Yoga, and get Self-Realization.”

(Marathi talk, 26/9/79. English translation in Nirmala Yoga no.24)


Advice given by H.H.Shree Mataji Nirmala Devi:

“They [ie. left sided people] also get the lethargic liver which gives them allergies. All kinds of allergies come to these people through their lethargic liver.”

(Sickness and its cure, New Delhi, 9/2/1983. Nirmala Yoga no.25)

Becoming Collective

I’ve seen many people saying that they can decide things on vibrations and they have decided certain things on vibrations. But they commit mistakes. That means they have not yet grown up to that state where they can decide on vibrations. So nobody should arbitrarily decide but consult the collective, especially your leaders to find out if whatever decision you have taken, whatever you have thought of, is it all right or not. And one may commit lots of mistakes if you start behaving arbitrarily. The greatest law of Sahaja Yoga is that it is a collective happening.

As people start becoming collective and collective they do not bother others, they do not trouble others, but they give joy to others. They are not bothered about their going and coming, their eating and everything, they just don’t behave like mundane, usual type of people. But they are very patient, Saburi as they call it. They are in the patience. Now this patience is most joy giving. Patience gives you the greatest joy. When you are patient you develop all your qualities. I think in patience you blossom the best.

GOD’S LOVE – Advice about Chakras, Mumbai (India), 30 December 1979

It is said that God is love. We have heard that many a times, and many people have explained in their own ways what is love.

But to feel that love is the best way of understanding it. Even if you explain or describe in all details, though it is described in all details, you cannot enjoy love without experiencing it.

This experience comes to us because God, Himself, has placed within us the mechanism to absorb this love and to manifest it. It is a very delicate mechanism within us, extremely delicate. This mechanism is placed in our heart, and by our ignorance, so many times, we spoil this mechanism or disturb it, or sometimes even completely destroy it.

The light of love is joy. Anything else cannot give you joy. It’s only the love that you feel in your heart gives you joy. This mechanism acts in seven layers within us. In the periphery of these seven layers, we have got ripples of this joy arising; they come to the shores of our brain and create the bubbles of joy. But again if the brain is a very rational rock then these bubbles dissolve, giving no effect to the rock. So a loving person is thousand times better than a rational person.

“Treatment for Joint pain, Atrophy & Arthritis. Don’t use hot water for bath”

“Joint pain comes from nabhi chakra. Nabhi should be corrected. Underground root vegetables should not be consumed.

I will vibrate kerosene oil and give you. Add it in any other oil and apply it. You should always do some exercises will prevent it. Thirdly, taking bath in hot water will lead to many problems. You should take bath in cold water. Hot water causes many problems like muscular pain, muscular atrophy. Muscles become weak and stiff causing difficulty in walking. So we should not take bath in hot water but in cold water. Women have the disease of taking bath more frequently than men. Once you get into the practice then you can take bath in cold water in winter also.

I have told you the treatment for throat already. Hot water causes problems in throat also. Hot and cold causes the problem. You should get into the habit of cold water. Small children should be made habituated to cold water. If your habits are spoilt then you should change them slowly. First with hot water then slowly change to cold water bath. Bring your body to coolness. It’s not very cold here. I take cold water bath in London also.

I have told you about arthritis and joints. If you can take lemons in hot water. Take 6 lemons for 6 days in boiled water . 2 lemons squeezed in water. Take it after breakfast, after lunch after dinner. Prepare it before breakfast so that it cools after breakfast. If you feel it very sour then add honey to it and drink it. It will cure it. Vitamin C helps, second thing is application of geru. Best is the oil i said the kerosene.”

The Lakshmi Principle,21/10/1990

A house should be such where you can live freely, at least a house should be like that. But the soon we become materialistic we get out of our Lakshmi principle. All the beauty of our wealth is finished. I’ve seen people that even a rat doesn’t enter their house, leave alone human beings. They polish their silver, they polish their brass, they polish their furniture, their beautiful house is done with beautiful paper, expensive things. But a rat also doesn’t enter.

And this is what is the Western materialism is: that we get so much worried about everything. I asked them, “Why are you so much worried?” They said, “Because it’s an investment and we have to sell the house.” Everything is an investment, they themselves are investments, I think. How will they enjoy? They cannot enjoy their wealth because everything seems to be an investment. Their head is an investment, their hair investment, nose investment, ears investment, everything is an investment! What’s the use of becoming human beings? You are just nothing but investments !

Doesn’t matter if the house is little bit sold, you get little less price. What does it matter? After all you have lived in that house. But I’ve seen that it’s very common that if a guest is sitting and the child spills something, immediately before the guest we’ll start cleaning it. It’s very bad manners. What is this carpet worth than a human being? So the Lakshmi principle is to understand that matter is for expression of your love. How much you do for others, how much comfort you can give to others. I’ve seen some people, I’ve been to some people that the Gruha Lakshmi, the woman who is in the house, won’t even look after the tea of the people, nothing!!! She’s just enjoying herself and bothering about the carpets or I don’t know, about the soap, about this..I mean so low level it is, not even, it’s not even a humanistic thing !

So, Lakshmi principle means love. This very few people understand. To them Lakshmi means money in the bank. No, doesn’t mean that. It means money or anything like that to express your love.

A HAPPY FAMILY – 4.10.1997

Your faces should be Sahaj. You should be Sahaj. You should not look like strained people. You are sahaj and should be in that Sahaj mood…. You should try to think about it, that “Our Mother loves me, She wants us to have a good family, She wants us to look after our children….” Women should also understand, her family is more important than father, mother, even Mataji because I’ll be only happy to see a happy family.
