Maharaji in Miami


What follows are excerpts from Maharaji's public event in Miami on June 13th -- as recalled by five people who attended.

"If you are interested in the joy of life, I can help you."

"It is not a question of doing anything -- it is a question of undoing."

"That which you want, you already have."

"What do you have that is precious and in abundance? Not dollars. Not diamonds. It's another kind of wealth -- the breath that comes in and out of you."

"The knowledge of the self is more important than all the knowledge in the world."

"The big DO is already doing and it just so happens to be the source of immense joy."

"Getting lost is easy. Getting found is undoing all the things we did to get lost."

"What is the characteristic of the person who is the true guide? To show you the way."


"Being confused is easy. All you have to do is listen to everyone."

"When you begin to accept the moment now, that is the door to everything."

"Peace is the perfume of God."

"What is being rich? To have something valuable and to have it in abundance. What is the most valuable thing and the thing we have that is most abundant? This breath -- and not only this breath -- also the peace that is within us, the love that is within us, and the appreciation that is within us. This makes us all very rich!"

"Someone said that I was an Emperor in a past life, and it was flattering, but it doesn't matter. It can't be proven. What is HERE is what matters!"

"You don't lack anything. You never have."

"All I know is that... my Master has given me a wonderful gift."

"Knowledge of the self, first -- and then, everything else."

"You are in heaven. Open your eyes and look around."

"If I don't understand what is present in my life, I will live in the greatest illusion there is."

"No interpretations, please! The Kingdom of Heaven is within. Be fulfilled. Understand. Enjoy that clarity."

"You want the clarity that illuminates reality -- so you can choose."

"God is in the realm of choice. You choose."

"After you discover that richness within, what should you do? Enjoy it! Otherwise, what's the point of being rich?"


"Be alive and be thankful for feeling alive."

"This is how you celebrate: In gratitude! In the most simple way."

"Peace has been placed inside of you and it lasts for the rest of your life."

"What is the science of engaging a sunset? The science of the heart."

"Don't just know you are blessed -- feel you are blessed.

"The Director is great. The Actors need a little work."

"Peace, in abundance, is richness. Understand your richness."

"Once I was young and everyone was old. Now it's the other way around."

"It shouldn't be 'Good Morning' or 'Good Afternoon.' It should be 'Good Life.'"

A big thank you to Marta Meyers, Steve Kowarsky, Ken Neger, Bobbye Farino, and Linda Marcussen for contributing to this posting.
