Q. A question about Paramhamsa Yogananda, he’s quite famous here [London] because of his book.
Shri Mataji Nirmala Devi: He’s famous? What has he done? Writing a funny book like that, that’s all. I don’t want to discuss, but first when you ask about somebody, you’ll have to tell me what he has done.
Q. The gentleman set up a Self Realization Fellowship in America.
Shri Mataji: I know many in America who have done it, and they are more difficult to get self-realization. There’s a big organization there, and they all believe they are self-realized, but they don’t know any vibrations, they can’t feel anything, and when they have been to that organization, I find it difficult to give them realization. In the name of God, in the name of self-realization, if you spoil the Kundalini of people I don’t know what to say about you.
Yogananda’s guru was Lahiri. And Lahiri’s guru was this horrible fellow Babaji.
