"This is the area which we say is within us, built up by the great prophets. You can start, say, Abraham, Moses, Socrates, Lao Tse; all these great prophets have built this area within us, and this represents ten valencies like Ten Commandments. Carbon has got four valencies. We have got ten valencies and these ten valencies are our real actual human nature, which we can call is the religion within ourselves. So when the Kundalini rises, She enlightens these valencies. That is how the religion becomes innate." -- Shri Mataji Nirmala Devi (1992-02-28, Public Program, Newcastle, Australia)
