Shri Mahalakshmi Puja: The Universal Love or 31st Kalwa (India)

Shri Mahalakshmi Puja. Kalwa (India), 30 December 1992. Transcript of English Talk: I would say those who have been worrying and all that should go into great meditation and understand that you are insulting yourself. You are saints. Why should you worry about what plane you are going to get, what you are not going to get? Shows that your level is very low, definitely. All those who have worried you have come here under My protection and you will go back under My protection! I got so sick this morning that I was thinking we’ll not have any pujas. You must know that you are all part and parcel of My being, I have put you into My body and you have to behave yourself. On such an auspicious day, when we have all come here, to do this special puja. I would say this should be called as a Mahalakshmi Puja, because it’s something to do with the industry of this country and of the whole world. Unless and until all the human ventures are connected with God, they cannot get their perfect stage and their status. That’s why we have problems now in the West. Supposed to be very clever people, very smart, very well equipped, well educated, we are having recessions and things, because they have no balance! They don’t know that there is God’s power which works everything. And when we neglect that, this is what’s happen to you. Now, for any venture that we Read More …

Jadish Prasad Concert Ganapatipule (India)

Jadish Prasad Concert, Ganapatipule, India, 25-12-1992 It was such a treat, after such a long time I could hear such a great master of music tonight and you two all enjoyed very much, I could see the way you are glued to your places. I mean, I don’t know how we are so lucky that we get all the talents, all the beautiful blessings, even in music which is very difficult to achieve in this far off place like a jungle. I hope you all have enjoyed it very much. I have now heard our Guruji’s Guru and I have heard also his Guru, I am as old as that. And the beauty of his music is that he doesn’t get, I should say, excited very much, very relaxed. His Guruji was used to rise about half way while singing. Of course he was very great singer, no doubt, but he used to do that way and then you come down and then again he used to rise. He is a very, very nice person, extremely nice and just lost in the music. Now after such a long time I could hear the echo of that great music and I must thank him very much for creating such good artists like our Guruji, his own son and the little one who has shown such miraculous powers. So we have to thank him very much, again and again, please give him a hand. Also he has promised to come with Babamama Read More …

Christmas Puja: Express Christ In Your Life Ganapatipule (India)

Christmas Puja, Ganapatipule (India), 25 December 1992. [English translation from Hindi] Today, we are celebrating Jesus Christ’s birthday. His incarnation was a very great thing. And, about Him, there is description in the scriptures also, as to how Mahavishnu’s incarnation will take place in this world, and He will become the foundation of the whole world. But, since the religion started taking an opposite direction, it got diverted to various different forms, and everything got drowned into darkness and ignorance. Therefore, the unity of dharma on this beautiful tree of divine power, where one after another beautiful incarnations took birth, got divided into different religions which were established. And, by taking these dead flowers, human beings made their own religions and started fighting. Jesus Christ is the incarnation of Shri Ganesha. and there is proof for this. About this proof I will tell you later in English. But from His life we have to learn that the life of Jesus Christ was extremely pure. Just like Shri Ganesha is pure, similarly, after taking His incarnation in this world, and while being in this world, He lived in complete purity, because impurity just couldn’t touch Him. This was how extraordinary His incarnation was. And because of this incarnation in this world a very big event took place, that our Agnya chakra got opened. As He was crucified on the cross, our Agnya chakra got opened and this was a great boon granted by Him. He had to do this so He Read More …

Evening Program eve of Christmas Puja Ganapatipule (India)

22-December-1992, What is Sahaja Dharma, Evening Program Before Christmas Eve, Ganpatipule, India Shri Mataji: I was so overwhelmed [long applause]. By seeing how you all love Me – that I thought I may not be able to speak anything today. As you know, Sahaja Yoga is nothing but love of God. And if you feel that love of God, then you are Sahaja Yogis. I don’t have to tell you anything more. It’s so deepening, it’s so subtle, it’s so nourishing. It plays such beautiful tunes and beautiful ragas. Within yourself. It has just opened a new dimension into your lives. And I am so very happy to see so many of you settled down there. Like the North Pole. And nothing can budge you out of it. Is a very big thing.  To know yourself is the biggest thing. But to know your Self and to have the knowledge about It is the highest. And so of many of you are, I have seen – fifty-five nations before Me. I think My work is done forever.  The music – I don’t know how to thank him because he is also My son. And the way he has accepted Sahaja Yoga is very, very remarkable. I have never known any artist that highly placed in spirituality. So sensitive to pure knowledge and to reality. Surprising one. Must be lots of punyas in his lives, he must have done. So many artists have come. Of course, they have tremendous respect for Read More …

Talk to Sahaja Yogis After Diwali Vienna (Austria)

Talk to Sahaja Yogis After Diwali I’m sorry it was so such a late time I had to come here. I had to make the food and just after dinner I came and I think the ashram is also very far away. I have to just tell you that we have had a very, very successful tour of South America. And as you must have seen the people of Romania, the people there were extremely surrendered, very surrendered people. And everywhere we had two to three thousand people and everywhere we had more than five hundred people for follow on. So you can imagine, in this short time, this is only the second time I went to Colombia, and we already have got six hundred Sahaja Yogis there. So they are very surrendered people, and though there is so called poverty, in their heart they are very good, very surrendered and they are very fast for accepting pure knowledge. While in the West, as you have seen, they are very slow to accept pure knowledge and also go on doubting till some time. I don’t know what is the reason for this. Why is it that people from countries, which are not democratic to this extent, some of them have been just despotic and quite poor. Even Rio was quite a poor country I would say, where I went. Brazilia is another one, which is coming up. And I was amazed that in Brazil the President of the Senate himself Read More …

Diwali Puja Timisoara, Sala Olimpia (Romania)

Diwali Puja. Temisoara (Romania), 25 October 1992. So today we are celebrating the Diwali Puja.I think you all can try to learn English which is a very simple language and would be better. I just want to say that you all can learn English language, it’s not difficult from my tapes. Of course the language of love is universal for it has no script, that’s the problem (Shri Mataji laughs) and no words, and no words.(Translator speaks ed.) Shri Mataji I am sorry, I am so full of emotions, too full of emotions, can’t catch your words you see … everything, all languages in my head, may I ask someone to translate, I feel I can not catch your words.Shri Mataji: No it’ll be all right, come along (Laughter and applause).I don’t know how to express, I am also full of lots of emotions. it’s such a beautiful gathering we have here from all over the world. We are all bound together in such pure love, and Russians also have arrived, luckily, they had to go through some tapasya.The significance of Diwali is spread out in about five days, and they are all together somehow, these five days are all put together. So they have different aspects, but in every aspect there’s one common point is that the Goddess plays the main role. Now the first day is the worship of the housewife where you have to buy some sort of a utensil for the kitchen or for the use Read More …

You all have your divinity intact Escola Nacional de Música da UFRJ, Rio de Janeiro (Brazil)

Public Program, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, 17-10-1992 Shri Mataji: I bow to all the seekers of truth. At the very outset, we have to know that truth is what it is. We cannot transform it, change it, and even think about it; unfortunately at this human awareness, we cannot even feel it. You have been already told about the subtle system we have within ourselves. This subtle system works out your ascent. Whatever I am telling you today you need not accept blindfold. But if it is proved, treat it as a hypothesis and if it is true then you have to accept it as honestly. Because it is for the benevolence of you and for the benevolence of the country and for the benevolence of this world. It is the last breakthrough of our evolution into a new awareness that we become the spirit. The first thing you should know that we are not this body, this mind, this ego, these conditionings, but we are the pure spirit. And the another truth is that there is this all pervading power of divine love which does all the living work. You see these beautiful flowers, its a miracle. And you see (with) your own eyes, what a camera! And this brain, what a computer. But we take everything for granted. If you ask doctor who runs our heart he will say it’s a autonomous nervous system. But who is this auto. There is a power, which is a living power, Read More …

Realized person emits peace and neutralizes violence and anger Centro de Convenções de Brasília, auditório Planalto, Brasilia (Brazil)

1992-1015 Public Program Brasília, Brazil I bow to all the seekers of truth. We have to know that truth is what it is. We cannot change it. We cannot transform it. We cannot read about it. Also, unfortunately, at this human awareness we cannot know it. We have to become the Spirit. Whatever I am going to tell you today, you need not believe Me blindfolded. But keep your mind open as a scientist has. Treat this as [a] hypothesis. And if it turns [out] to be the truth, you have to accept it as honest people. Because it is for the benevolence of your own, benevolence of the country, and benevolence of the whole world.  We are born in a very special time today. These are the times when lots of things are going to happen. And people will be in illusion – won’t understand what is right and what is wrong. But at this time only, there are many who are seeking the truth. They are not sticking on to anyone book or sticking on to one ideology, but they want to know what is beyond. They are a special category of people. William Blake*, a great poet, has said that men of God will be born in those days and they will find their Divinity, and they will make others Divine. Believe Me, you all have your Divinity intact within yourself. It cannot be tarnished. It cannot be destroyed whatever you might have done to yourself, because Read More …

Shri Mahakali Puja: She is the Holy Ghost Salvador-Bahia (Brazil)

Shri Mahakali Puja, Salvador-Bahia (Brazil), 14 October 1992. It is so nice to be here in Brazil, especially in Salvador. I’ve been to a gentleman a long time back, from my husband’s office, from Brazil, and his wife was suffering from terrible black magic. And she really was cured of that trouble. So he told me that, “You have to go to Brazil because it is full of lots of negative things specially the black magic, so you must go there somehow”. And so it was my great desire to come here and that’s how I came, few years back. Also, Duilio was here and, I mean, things were arranged somehow, Sahaj, so I came here.So, the problem of this country is more, is this black magic that is brought by the people from Africa. So I have thought today, we, let us have Mahakali Puja.Mahakali is the left-side Power in us. So, actually, she is Adi Shakti. Only when she enters into the left side of the Virata we call her Mahakali, but she is the power of pure desire of God. Then she establishes Shri Ganesha herself. Then she goes to the right-side as Mahasaraswati. And then she enters into the centre where she is Mahalakshmi. That is how Adi Shakti takes three forms. But Mahakali is the pure form, because she’s not yet taken- I mean from Adi Shakti, she is Mahakali Power. So, first thing she, before creating this universe or anything, she created Shri Ganesha.

Devi Puja: The seventh day Sasaima (Colombia)

Shri Devi puja, seminar resort,  Sasaima, (Colombia), October the 6th 1992 I’m very happy to be with you all here as if you already know about “sahaj”. Today I must tell you that the Goddess has come nine times on this earth before. And she came – today is the seventh day of her worship, of the nine. And the seventh day is for tremendous activity, tremendous creativity and also for prosperity. And so, it is so coincident that we have the condor for their symbol. And I asked them, “Why do you have a condor as their symbol for shipping?” So, they said that, “Mother, it is a deity of the old people, our forefathers told us that a god called Vishnu came from your country on a condor, we call him Garuda”. My husband was there and [unclear]. And also, the ornaments that you make here, which are all Indian style. So, they said that the ornaments are made by the Indians who came from India. Now I feel these deities must have visited these countries, specially Colombia. It must have been. But on what the red Indians have said, what they talk of wisdom and God shows that they knew about Sahaja. Or else maybe that this country was called by some other name, in those days of twenty-one thousand years. And they have passed all that knowledge to you. That’s why you people are so receptive. Now, America is the Vishuddhi chakra. And the right side Read More …

Kundalini and the Holy Ghost Barcelona (Spain)

Public Program 44.15 Shri Mataji: I bow to all the seekers of truth. At the very outset, I have to tell you that truth is what it is. We cannot change it, we cannot transform it, nor can we know at this human awareness. That’s is why something has to happen to us, that is we have to become a subtler being. At this human awareness, we cannot feel the truth. That’s why it is said that you have to born again. That doesn’t mean that we can just take a certificate to ourselves and say we are born again. None of these certificates are of any use. It is an actualisation of a mystic experience which one should have; which is described by many mystics and by many saints and by many seers. It is not that you can pay for it. Because it is the last jump or last breakthrough of your evolution. And that is what one has to seek, those who are honestly seeking the truth. Now, I have to tell you that all of you have your divinity intact within yourself. It is all there. Nothing can destroy it because it is of eternal nature. Maybe some clouds might have covered it. But it always existed, it’s always there. So, first of all, we have to realise that by talking about it or reading about it we are not going to get it. They have already told you about the subtle system that is within Read More …

Shri Mahalakshmi Puja: Keep your Mahalakshmi principle intact Barcelona, Can Mas-casa de colónies (Spain)

Shri Mahalakshmi Puja. Barcelona (Spain) 30 September 1992. Today we have gathered here to do Mahalakshmi Puja. Mahalakshmi principle is a very important principle within us. When in the countries or in the families or in individual lives, we find- (Somebody must translate, I think better because they don’t understand). So this Mahalakshmi principle is the most important thing for our ascent. This principle is within us but is not awakened before we have achieved a certain amount of situation where we find that we are not yet satisfied with our life. Like in the West now, you had blessings of the Laxmi principle, in the sense there is affluence, people are alright, everybody has food and are sufficient in their every day to day life. But countries which are very poverty stricken or who are in very bad shape, like you can say now Yugoslavia these days is like that, in a very bad shape, or a country, Somalia, which is very, so poor and they have no spiritual background either. So for them, this life is just meant for somehow or other to survive, just to survive. Like this is a life of crisis they have, they have still to exist in their lives, you see, so it’s a crisis for them. But in the affluent countries, it so happens that people start feeling that now, we have got this money, we’ve got all the comfort of life, but still it’s not giving us the joy of life. Read More …

1st Day of Navaratri, 10th Position Campus, Cabella Ligure (Italy)

Navaratri Puja. Cabella Ligure (Italy), 27 September 1992. Today is the first day of Navaratri. And when I found that the rain was there and all kinds of problems, and Vishnumaya was suggesting some things, I just consulted the calendar, and you will be amazed to know that in the calendar it is written that till five forty-five it’s not auspicious – it’s inauspicious. After five forty-five only the right thing starts, so just imagine, by calculation how it was correct that five forty-five we had to have this puja, after five forty-five. That is, the first day of Navaratri starts in Italy or in Europe after five forty-five. So it is something one must understand that the Chaitanya is working out everything, and it is giving all the suggestions; because I had not at all seen the, what you call the tithi, but I just felt that, I said that we’ll have it in the evening. And when I said it, I said “Let’s see this,” and there it was. There’s so many things we have to see, that whatever has been revealed to you, you can verify it. For example, I had said long time back that Mooladhara Chakra is made out of carbon, carbon atom, and if you see it from left to the right – right to the left, left side you see nothing but a swastika. So, now you see from left to the right, then you see Omkara; and once you see from down Read More …

Shri Vishnumaya Puja: Stop Feeling Guilty Shawnee on Delaware (United States)

Shri Vishnumaya puja. Shawnee, Pennsylvania (USA), 20 September 1992. Today, we have decided to have a Vishnumaya Puja. In this context, one has to know who is this Vishnumaya and what is Her – you can call it mythological [Shri Mataji laughs gently] – but a historical relationship. I have told you that America is the country of Shri Krishna and He’s Kubera, as well as He’s Yama. Because He’s Kubera, people have got their affluence, they are rich people, they have money, more than anywhere else, but if you do not remember, that you have to have balance and that Shri Krishna’s power is of Mahalakshmi. So, Mahalakshmi Principle is such that where seeking is important, Vishnu Principle is there when Shri Lakshmi is His power. After getting the Lakshmi up to a certain point, then you jump into a new awareness or a new sort of a seeking which is the seeking of the spirit where the Mahalakshmi principle starts, the central path. That far, of course, in America it started, the Mahalakshmi Principle, but people did not know, they had no discretion to know which way to go for their seeking and so many got enamoured by false advertisements, by all kinds of promises, claims and things and I came here long time back at that moment where I knew that the seeking now is showing results and that all the people from all over the world will try to come down here because there was a Read More …

Sitar Concert by Debu Chauduri with Talks of Shri Mataji, Eve Of Shri Vishnumaya Puja Shawnee on Delaware (United States)

Sitar Concert by Debu Chauduri with Talks of Shri Mataji, Eve Of Shri Vishnumaya Puja I have never studied music but somehow in my family there is so much of music that only it is an ocean of music, so only listening to it you know so much. So now he is going to play to you as you know Darbari Kannada. This raga was composed by a very great musician called Tansen and is the majestic raga where you describe the court of the Goddess or of God or of a king. So it has that majesty in it. And also in this raga first they play the lower notes, that is the beauty about it. So are you settled down well in the understanding of that particular raga, in the sense that it creates a feeling of that dignity of that majestic nature in you. First by playing the lower notes in a very deep way. Then this raga is expanded more, later on. The beauty of this is that very high notes are suddenly brought down to a lower note. So that is a kind of a movement of your attention from the higher notes to the lower notes. It’s a remarkable feat also on this instrument. So he was telling me that his fingers are full of grooves which sometimes bleed and this bleeding was so much that I had to stop it, his bleeding. So he plays for you, he is suffering here with pain Read More …
