Today we have decided to have a puja of Virata in the land of Shri Krishna. As you know, in the growth of Shri Vishnu's manifestation, He comes into ten incarnations and ultimately He manifests Himself as Virat. Virat is the brain of the being which can call as God Almighty, so the whole central nervous system is worked through by Shri Krishna as Vishnu, then all this incarnations, then Shri Krishna and ultimately as Virat. This is the development of our brain and when we are worshipping Virat, we have to know that within us also we have got the manifestation of this power of Virat. That manifestation which we have we can call it as Virat if Shri Krishna is Mahavirata.
You all know about Virat much more than I can tell you today because It’s the whole, It’s the totality. And the totality of everything, if that is Virat, then that is in your brain, but reality is in your heart. So the totality you may see, you may witness, the reality is the subtlety behind it. So the brain which is not ruled by the heart, which is not nourished by the heart, is a very dangerous thing, because it creates extroversion, and such a person who is without any heart tries to do things, becomes very ruthless and can be very dangerous. It could the other way also within us; that if we allow our heart to rule us, only live with our emotions and not to use our rationality, then we can become really very dangerous people to ourselves. In the sense, we become lethargic, we become indulgent into wrong sort of things. And today what one feels that in America there's more dominance of the left side than of the right. Right side is our attention and the right side of attention is we can say is the liver of God Almighty. So now when we have to talk of the totality, when we are part and parcel of the totality and now we are awakened to that existence of ours as the part and parcel of the whole, then we have to realize to become the whole we have to do something about it. Specially in the land of Shri Krishna we have to work out this tremendous task of creating Viratas out of Sahaja Yogis.

So thus today we have to worship Virata, he is nothing but Akbar who is Shri Krishna himself becoming Virata.
(Virata Puja, Melbourne, Australia, 10/4/91)
So this is what it is today, as it is, the situation, that: you have become part and parcel of Virata already. You have not seen the Virata (as Arjuna did), but you are part and parcel of it. You are not watching it, you are inside it. So that anymore of not watching yourself, only thing will be that, you’ll be thrown out of Sahaja Yoga. Or else you better watch yourself and correct yourself and be one with the body of the Virata.
(Shri Krishna Puja, Cabella, 1991)
