Respect

That which is missing in the UK - the respect for others and their cultures, and for the Adi Shakti; Respect produces
'thoughtless awareness'… because then there is no thought (890524); In Sahaja Yoga, we respect all the Incarnations… all
the prophets… and all the Religions in their essence… this is something so great in Sahaja Yoga (971230); Respectful
behaviour towards others, and towards others' things, is part of the Mahalakshmi Principle. When this dignity, and
respect, and desire to rise higher, manifests in a genuine inner way, then this helps to build the bridge of the Sushumna
over the void, for the Kundalini to pass properly, which otherwise would continue to get lost in the void (860921.1)

If you are not innocent, you cannot have respect… so innocence has to be developed, to have that respect (840902);
Between two Sahaja Yogis there should always be tremendous respect… not only respect, but tremendous respect (840118);
Why we are suffering in this beautiful planet, is because we do not respect what we have to respect the most… Mother Earth
is to be respected… meaning that whatever is created on this Mother Earth by the movement of the Earth, by the sea, by all
the elements, has to be respected (970525)

I feel the whole West suffers from one simple disease… that is they do not know how to respect anyone… with their ego, they
want to judge everyone, and condemn everyone… so get out of it, and tell yourself 'I don't know anything'; Don't think that you
know everything… respect each and every person… not for what he has read, or what he has learnt, but because he is a great
Soul; Respect every Sahaja Yogi from your heart, because they are made in the form of Shri Ganesha… we'll not make fun of
them… we'll not laugh at them… as long as they're in Sahaja Yoga, we have to respect (840902)

Husbands also must respect their wives… is very important. Where women are not respected… calamities come in… like
Bangladesh is full of calamities, because they don't respect their women. Pakistan is full of calamities… now the wars are going on,
this is going on… they don't respect their women. What about Saudi Arabia… always the threat of war… what about Iran… all
these countries… where women are not respected… they are in trouble. But women also must respect themselves… not like the
women in the 'west'… the way they throw themselves at men… why should you try to attract men all the time… why should you
try to be all the time dressed up that they should run after you. You see this one is a culture which really debases women, to I
don't know what level… you are not prostitutes… so we should have our own self respect. We should respect our body… respect
our husbands… respect our children… respect everyone… that's important… but also the society, and the family, and the
husband… all of them must respect women… it's very important… they are complimentary… men and women are complimentary (950625)

In Hindi language, there is 'Adub'… means modesty and… respect… but more than respect… a style of saying things… not in
Urdu, but in Hindi, of day-to-day talking… there's respect, and a way to address others. You can learn Hindi in no time. All this will
give you… a kind of a more flexible vehicle to express your love (971225)
