I am from Delhi, India, and work as a travel agent. I met Shri Mataji at gatherings in my house where She talked to me like any relative would, because I am related to Her by marriage. She asked me about myself and like any other person I said I was fine, but She said there was a problem with one of my chakras. Before I could even understand She was pinpointing the exact area where She felt I had a problem, but wasn’t aware of it. Later I discovered She was propagating Sahaja Yoga. She invited me to stay with Her in London.
Later, when I was going to Canada, there was a delay in the flight, so I stopped over in London and took a walk in the evening, because I didn’t know how to kill the time. I saw Shri Mataji’s picture, and nearby there was a hall where Her public programme was going on. I entered and remembered Her from the party where I had met Her, back home. Shri Mataji was talking to a lot of people and the process of self realisation was to start. The moment I entered the hall She spotted me and asked some people to guide me to the front row. There I was, sitting with my hands towards Her.
‘Did you feel the vibrations?’ She asked, ‘Did you feel the cool breeze?’ but I felt nothing. After the programme was over some yogis took me to Shri Mataji.
‘I’m glad you came,’ She said.
‘Shri Mataji, my flight was delayed,’ I replied.
‘If you are not doing anything, why don’t you come home?’ She said. So they took me to Her car when She was leaving the programme. I sat with Shri Mataji in the car and went to Her house.
‘I am cooking today,’ She told me. ‘If you like you can have dinner with us and then I will explain to you about Sahaja Yoga, and I’m sure you will be able to feel the cool breeze and the vibrations.’
First Shri Mataji gave me good food, and at the dining table told me what Sahaja Yoga is all about. Then She asked me to put my hands out and I could feel the vibrations, the cool breeze. It was the fourth of July and I cannot forget that day.
‘You are the guru,’ Shri Mataji told me, ‘you have to believe in yourself. And it is you who will finally make up your mind what you want out of your life, you will decide, you will do everything.’ I suddenly felt so rejuvenated, that my own self, my being, could make a self discovery. And once that happened there were no obstacles, there were no problems.
