Shri Krishna Puja: Yogeshwara – The Technique of the Play Campus, Cabella Ligure (Italy)

Shri Krishna Puja. Cabella Ligure (Italy), 1 September 1991. Today we have decided to worship the Yogeshwara. I think that is the greatest name of Shri Krishna for us. That means He is the Ishwara of yoga. ‘Yoga’ means ’the union’ as you know, with the Divine. But also yoga has another meaning which means ’yukti’ (युक्ती). In English language, to translate it properly, not possible, we can call it as – yukti means ’the trick’, the trick. But trick is always connected with something funny and bad. But this yukti means ’the technique’. The technique is mechanical, so I couldn’t find any proper word for yukti. But one can say, it is (the) ’to know the technique’ and ’the trick of the technique’ is also another meaning of yoga, yukti. So, even if you are connected, if you do not know the trick of the union, then it is useless. It is of no avail. So what one has to learn after getting realization, not only the technique, but the trick of the technique. At Krishna’s level, when we reach, it is an incarnation after Shri Rama’s. So Shri Rama came as a Maryada Purushottoma, means a person who is a complete ideal of maryadas and a benevolent king. But, in the case of Shri Krishna, it was a different phase because people had become extremely serious, very disciplined, and were leading a life, which was, we can say, ‘over-dharmic’. And this had put the people at a level Read More …

You have to actualise the experience of spirituality Natura Artis Magistra, Amsterdam (Holland)

Public Programme, First Evening The Koningszaal, Artis, Amsterdam 1st August 1991 I bow to all the seekers of truth. At the very outset, I have to say that truth is where it is. It is what it is. We cannot change it, transform it or conceptualise it. Also unfortunately, we cannot know it at this human awareness. We have to become a subtler being what we call the Spirit. Otherwise it is not possible to feel the truth. The truth is you are not this body, not this mind, nor this ego or these conditionings, but you are pure Spirit. The second truth is that there is a subtle power of divine love that does all the living work. We have never felt it. Holland is a country of flowers but we never thought how these small seeds have produced such beautiful flowers, spontaneously. The seed had the potential to sprout and the Mother Earth had the potential to make them sprout. But we take it for granted.  Look at ourselves. Look at the eyes that we have- it’s such a beautiful micro-camera. But we do not know how we have achieved this state of human awareness. From amoeba stage to this stage we have come, but we do not try to find out how. In the Zen system of Buddhism it is called as Tao, which means how. But as in every system they have lost their way to reality because of ignorance. When we find that science cannot Read More …

Letter, location unknown, 1991 (Location Unknown)

Translated from Marathi My dear Yogi, A lot of Sahaja Yogis felt hurt after reading Uma Vasudev’s article and I got a lot of letters. Maybe, you also receive a few letters, that’s why I’m writing this to you as some people might be upset with you, even though I think one thing might be beneficial to me. that’s why my attention went to this article. You know how I run away from people touching my feet. Why do you people let non Sahaja Yogis touch my feet? I admit that some people get their Self-realization while touching my feet but even they most of them are troublesome. I’m spared by egoistical people because such people do not come at my feet. Otherwise, who knows what would have happened to these feet? Poor feet would have gotten burnt. I’ll be grateful to Umaji if after reading this article the general public stops touching my feet. But she should not think of herself as sensible and others as fearful. Does Umaji know everyone’s desires? In this world, everyone is equal but cannot be similar. Everyone has the right to get their Self-realization and develop in that light. Sahaja Yogis believe that I’m the source of this light, based on their experiences. Then, Umaji who is unfamiliar in this matter; shouldn’t insult them by calling them sycophant. Every journalist feels that he can say anything about anyone. Yes, she can say anything about me, but it’s inappropriate to write about the whole Read More …

New Year Puja: Krita Yuga Has Started Kalwa (India)

New Year Puja, Kalwa (India),  January 1st, 1991 Translation from Hindi Today we are going to perform a Puja in a place close to Bombay. The name of Bombay used to be Mumbai. This name is made of three words: Mum, Amba, and Aayee. In Maharashtriyan or Marathi language we address Mother as Aayee. Even in the Vedas, Adi Shakti is referred to as Ee. So, the reflection of Adi Shakti is Aayee. That is why Mother is called as Aayee. Also, in many places, she is also called as “Ma”, Therefore the first sound has come from the word “mum”. And Amba, as you all know, is verily the Kundalini. So this Trigunatmika is three words. And in Mumbai also, you know that, there is a beautiful temple of all the three Shaktis, Mahalakshmi, Mahasaraswati, Mahakali, from where these three Devis have emerged from Mother Earth. Although, a lot of illicit activities are done by people here, but still these three Devis are in an awakened state here. So, especially the people of Mumbai, should understand that these three Devis” swayambhu have not manifested together anywhere else; As you already know in Mahurgadh there is Mahasaraswati; And in Tuljapur there is Bhavani (Shri Mahakali), and in Kolhapur there is Mahalakshmi. And in Wani is the half syllable (Ardhmatra), whom we call as Adi Shakti. But here, all the three Murtis (swayambhu) are awakened. But where there is the most hard work done, and where the divine work is done Read More …

Sahaja Yoga: The Essential Medicine (Location Unknown)

Sahaja Yoga – The Essential Medicine Sahajayoga and essential medicine Shri Mataji Nirmaladevi- grandmother, scholar and freedom fighter. As a child she lived in Gandhiji’s ashram, as a student she studied medicine and as cry for freedom swept India she fought for her nation’s independence. The year 1970 was about her most important role. The discovery of development of sahajayoga, a movement which is now spreading in worldwide. Sahajayoga is a science of integration which results in man’s mental, physical and spiritual wellbeing. The union of mind heart and spirit is a achieve through the working of a subtle energy system within each one of us. “That you are not this body, this mind, these conditionings, this ego but we are the spirit. You don’t have to accept what I am saying blindly because blind faith leads to fanaticism. But as scientist you must keep your mind open and see for yourself what I am saying if it is so honestly you must accept it.” In today’s society this subtle energy system which has its origins in very roots of our being has been neglected. It is out of balance. Today’s physical and psychological diseases are gross expressions of a subtle system in dire need of repair and nourishment. Our collective desire of a peace and rejuvenation is a yearning coming from deep within. It is a reflection of our internal condition. “We know so much though science about our civilization our advancement . This is a advancement of a Read More …
