"One man, Steven was his name, came to my house while I was still living in Narhi (Central Lucknow). It was the afternoon, the time I used to go for a walk. I invited him to come with me. As we were walking along, he asked me his first question: What is Sahaja ? Sahaja means the natural state. He had heard of this natural state and wanted to know what it was and how it could be attained.

I told him, This is the natural state. Look around you. There is ...a traffic island. On the side is the post office, and over there are a restaurant, a hospital a zoo. Many people are sitting here. Cars and buses are moving around; people are travelling to and fro. This is the sahaja state.

That's all I said, but he suddenly got very excited and started exclaiming, 'I got it, I got it, I got it !' He didn't ask anything else. At this time, for this man, that was the right answer.

What is sahaja ? This is sahaja. Where you are right now is sahaja. You cover it up with thoughts about good and bad, about what you need to do and what you don't need to do. You introduce confusion, and part of this confusion is the idea that you need to do something to attain this natural state. Wherever you are wherever you go, you cannot leave this state behind. You cannot keep it in your house and go out without it. it has always been with you. It is the easiest thing to get because you don't have to practise for it. It's natural; it's already there".
