Ma Yoga Shakti, Mataji, or revered Mother as devotees affectionately know her was completely devoted to public service and an ardent champion of women’s rights. Her deep conviction and belief for people to practice all four aspects of yoga – raja, bhakti, karma and gyan, and integrated them within their daily lives, compelled Mataji to established ashrams in Mumbai, New Delhi, Haridwar and Chennai in India and in London, New York and Florida.

Through deep devotion to God, strong determination, single-mindedness and constant tapas Mataji has been able to accomplish so much. Not only are her spiritual and material accomplishments enormous, but more importantly she has personally touched transformed, and elevated countless lives. She was truly a loving Mother who showered her blessings on all that came to her. She left her physical body February 20, 2015 and attained Maha Samadhi.

The yogic theory explains that the sun means your soul and the moon means your mind.  As the moon receives the light of the sun and radiates it, similarly, the mind receives light from the soul and is energized.  If mind doesn’t receive energy from the soul, it will never be energized or be in its proper place.  So, we have to understand the relationship of the mind with the soul.

Oh God, Give Us a Beautiful Consciousness

O God, give us a beautiful consciousness
To bestow honor and welcome to everyone.

May we embrace everyone with love.
May we bring happiness to all beings.
May we never disrespect anyone.

Every Moment Is Precious

Chitta needs to be reconstructed; consciousness needs to be carved anew.  The tool to be used is the present moment.  Every moment is precious.  Be careful of your moments.  They are tools in your hands to carve your consciousness.  Life can be made very beautiful if we think it is beautiful.  We are nothing else but our thoughts.  We have closed our minds to our many assets.
