Shri Mataji: "Nobody has to change dresses or anything - it's nothing outside.""Those who think they need the outward persona are missing something very profound. They are still focussed on the 'out there' reality while believing they are going 'within'. They think they are accessing infinite consciousness when it is all going on in their finite mind of images and 'things'."
Question: "Do we have to change our lifestyle in Sahaja Yoga?"
Shri Mataji Shri Mataji: "No, not the lifestyle, you see when you do what is needed for you, what is good for you. Nobody has to change dresses or anything - it's nothing outside. But supposing you see now if I tell somebody now don't wear such tight dresses, nobody would listen, because they will wear. Varicose veins and this all had happened. Then now they're wearing very, very loose ones.
Now in England there was a fashion came up when people were having holey pants with the holes. Imagine, I mean it's such a cold country to have holes in it, I mean, it's stupidity isn't it? But nobody will listen. And also these people came with punks and this and that. And if you talk to them they'll say: "What's wrong?"So, best thing is to raise their Kundalini then they themselves understand what's wrong with them.
Nothing has to be changed as such outside, but you yourself take to things which are sensible, which are wise, which are good for you, you yourself take to it, I don't have to tell you anything about it."

IRRELEVANT COMPLEXITY... AND SIMPLE TRUTHS
By David Icke November 16th 2008
Seated around the hall were Ramana devotees, both local and from around the world, and the ceremony took the form of someone reading from a book while the assembled replied in unison from the same said book. It could quite easily have been a Christian service or one from Islam, Judaism or the Hindu faith (which it basically was in structure and theme).
Was I alone in seeing the irony of such religious ritual in the name of a man who said this world is a figment of mind and that we are all One? It seemed so.
I watched as the Western white people with Indian garb and close- cropped hair followed the program of religious advocates across the world. They wore the uniform and copied the haircut of the 'holy men' they so wished they could have been.
I briefly met a lovely guy from Scotland with an accent that sounded surreal when contrasted with his 'holy man' crew-cut and Hindu tunic. He walked, like so many of his West-finds-East persuasion, with a slowness and deliberation of footstep, as if traversing some invisible tightrope in the floor.
This is not religious 'enlightenment', it's a software program.
I am not knocking such people or seeking to ridicule them. They should wear what they like and look how they like. What they do is none of my business and what a bore if everyone looked like me in my baggy trousers and T-shirt.
My point is exactly that—it doesn't matter how you wear your body or your hair. Enlightenment is not a fashion statement; it is a state of being.
Those who think they need the outward persona are missing something very profound. They are still focussed on the 'out there' reality while believing they are going 'within'. They think they are accessing infinite consciousness when it is all going on in their finite mind of images and 'things'.
