Birthday Pooja. Bombay (India), 21 March 1985.
(Till TC 20:48 Shri Mataji speaks in Marathi)
I talk to them in Marathi language, because here so many of them don´t understand any other language but Marathi.
Today is the day of Gauri Puja.
Gauri is the one who, as a Virgin, created Shri Ganesha. And in the same pattern you have got your realization. In the same pattern!
So you have to use the same power within you that is of Gauri, that you keep your heart clean. You must have a clean heart. You must have a clean thinking. There should be purity in your mind.
Of course, the bhakti does give that purity, but if there is anything lingering in your mind I have to tell you there are three things that are going to happen from today.
First, we have started Vishwa Nirmala Dharma. You are under the vision of Shri Ganesh, under the guidance of your Spirit, and under the blessings of God Almighty. But be careful, because once you become that, you have to keep to that Dharma, you have to be honest about it. If you are dishonest from today onwards you be careful, anything can happen to you if you get out of the maryadas. Till you keep the maryadas of Sahaja Yoga, saying morning, evening, night that: “I am a Sahaja Yogi”, nobody can harm you, hurt you. Nobody can trouble you. On the contrary you will be enjoying life if you keep to the maryadas. But if you leave the maryadas of Sahaja Yoga, you will have big problems.
So this is the second thing I want to tell you that today we have started the great vision, which was promised long time back of realized souls. Now the third is that with all these things we are doing, we must promise to God also that we will know about Sahaja Yoga, through proper understanding, reading every word of it. We’ll master the knowledge of Sahaja Yoga. We’ll keep ourselves clean. And completely surrender our lives to Sahaja Yoga.
This is what you have to promise in your heart. Surrendering to Sahaja Yoga is actually surrendering to joy, bliss and peace. In that you are the gainer, nobody is a loser in it. This is how today we have to decide once for all.
Today is the day as you know, my forefathers called it the first day of the year(*). and they have the kailasha and the shawl of the Goddess as the emblem or you can call it as a flag of Shalivahan. In any way my delay is important because there was Amavasya (last lunar day of dark fortnight) earlier, and we had to get rid of that Amavasya for the first day to start.
That’s how the delay was there, there was jam, everything is arranged. We should not worry: “Why there is delay, why there is this?” Sometimes I may come earlier, I may come later, it’s all arranged. Because during Amavasya how can you have my puja? Simple thing like that. It is all arranged, it’s all worked out. Everything is fine, just be your Self. Do not get upset with anything, do not get worried or anything. Just try to keep absolutely peaceful. I´ll give you some tests by seeing how much you keep to that situation, of complete peace within yourself. If you have done no wrong, if you are a Sahaja yogi, there should be no disturbance. If others have done wrong, it’s alright, doesn’t matter, you have not done anything wrong. As long as you have done no wrong there is nothing to worry. And as it is, even if you have done some wrong, God is there to forgive you. So don’t have any worry, nothing.
Have all the strength, have all the courage and go ahead with this promise onwards. Because I see now Sahaja Yoga is going to take a new turn. Definitely it is going to take. We are going to come up to a stage where thousands and thousands will join hands. But first of all those who are in the foundations, who are the first people must work very hard to keep themselves above all kinds of foolish temptations all kinds of foolish things you have been doing, which is asahaja (not Sahaja). Language should be sweet, your behavior should be good, it should be very gentle and soft. You should move like a yogi, live like a saint, and people should see through you the greatness of Sahaja Yoga.
May God bless you!
