i am re-posting parts of a previous post below to underscore that the much touted and trumpeted "unique method of meditation based on an experience called Self Realization (Kundalini awakening) that can occur within each human being" is a B- presentation and content at best. This official but severely understated and timidly promoted version of Sahaja Yoga is exactly what Shri Mataji referred to 21 years ago as putting "one little fish and two eggs for ten people with one chili to say that it is Sahaja Yoga".
But even the official presentation of Self-realization, the first chapter out of 108 that make up Shri Mataji's incarnation, is shallow and superficial. It is based and entirely focused on the external manifestation of the Adi Shakti (Holy Spirit/Ruh/Comforter/ Aykaa Mayee) within. Most SYs project their senses externally towards Her physical form and council members like Alan Wherry go into a fit when i say that Her external image is not needed since She is within. Such members can only justify their being livid if they have no knowledge or faith that Shri Mataji is the incarnation of the Devi within. Maybe they have forgotten or cannot grasp or do not have the gnosis that She resides within:
"You know that I reside in the Sahasrara (Kingdom of God within). I incarnated on the Lotus of 1000 Petals; that is why I could break it open also."

So WCASY continues to put one little fish and two eggs for ten people with one chili to say that it is Sahaja Yoga. i am 100% convinced that this menu - which is all they have to promote Shri Mataji - is a poor spiritually bland diet that bores and starves the already malnourished souls of the much needed mystical atmosphere, divine taste and gnostic experience so vital for inner nourishment.
The SY leadership has always insisted and enforced the same menu for decades - one little fish and two eggs for ten people with one chili. The fact that 99.999% of seekers never return is a shocking statistic that SYs do not blame on meals prepared in their collective kitchens. But who really cares to remember what Shri Mataji said more than two decades ago and take drastic steps to save our empty, almost bankrupt chain of SY restaurants?

You are absolutely right when you say that "Over the last thirty years or so, Shri Mataji has taught that She requires of Sahaja Yogis to use all of their spiritual powers of Love and Creativity to do everything from giving self-realisation... to telling Her Divine Message of the Last Judgment and Resurrection... to declaring and proving Her Identity... to writing and explaining to the world Her Message of Love. (i am sure there are more things that She asked of us, but that will suffice for now.)"
Even Self-realization is much more than raising the kundalini and teaching about the subtle system. i have serious doubts if the vast majority of SYs truly understand Self-realization to the depth discussed here at this forum:
Brahman/God-realization is far more difficult than Self-realization
Sahaj Love shines from The Light within - the same God/Allah/Brahman
Sakti or Devi is Brahman revealed in the mother aspect (Srimata)
Sakti or Devi is the Scared Mother: the Seer, the Seen and Seeing
Secret taught by living Jesus: "If you know yourself then ..." 1
Secret taught by living Jesus: "If you know yourself then ..." 2
Shri Mataji: "You have to enter into the Kingdom of God"
"The discoverer of the Atman must also discover this inner Light"
"The godly light is exactly the beginning of parousia in holy souls"
"The supreme divinity, Lalita, is one's own blissful Self."
Till complete knowledge of Shakti's consciousness arises
What do SYs know about Self-realization?
Thus i am sure that when Shri Mataji told us to give Self- realization it meant much more than the present petty knowledge given by SYs.
