New Year Puja: You All Have to Become Masters in Sahaja Yoga Kalwa (India)

New Year Puja, Kalwa, India. 31 December 2000. [English transcription] Now, we are starting a New Year, and I wish you all a very happy and prosperous New Year. (Applause) In this wish of Mine I also wish you a very deep growth in Sahaja Yoga. (Applause)Now you all are Sahaja Yogis and you all have to become masters in Sahaja Yoga. For becoming masters in Sahaja Yoga I am sure you are doing meditation, introspection and all kinds of Sahaja Yoga rituals, I should say. In this New Year, I’ll think there is greater chance for you to do much better, because all those years of ordeals are over. (Applause) We are now entering into the New Era. I say now the Satya Yuga is established. (Applause) In the beginning you may not feel the atmosphere of Kali Yuga being cleared out completely. Of course gradually you’ll find that’s all clearing out and all the people who are dangerous for your spiritual life, for your national life, for your family life, will have to take back their way; they cannot be successful here. (Applause) Now the Sahaja Yogis have to decide how far they will spread Sahaja Yoga all over. How many people can get into Sahaja Yoga? There should be many more waiting for you this year, and maybe this year, if you all decide to work it out, I am sure you can get lots of people who will be saved from the curses of Kali Yuga.

Weddings Ganapatipule (India)

Weddings, Ganapatipule, India, 26-12-2000 [Talk to brides] I want to congratulate you all for getting married in the Sahaja system. We are here to establish a new culture of our married life. It’s not the old style that we had or the new style that we were going to have. Actually marriages should be made very much comfortable, beautiful and enjoyable. If that cannot be done, it’s better not to marry. You don’t want to marry to make yourself less level and make others less level. So the first thing one has to remember that these girls that they are marrying are coming from another family, from another country, from another standards. So try to understand them. One thing I have seen, if you have love for your wife, then you can solve all the problems. What a wife wants is a love, attention from the husband. If you could do that, then you are very well off to begin with. You can also find out what does she like, what she doesn’t like. It is the oneness of character that will help. But that is only possible by understanding each other, not by forcing your culture or her culture on her, but by observing what is Sahaja culture. As a husband, of course, you have a higher position in the married life because you are the earning member and you are the one who has to look after the family as far as financial side is concerned. But the Read More …

Christmas Puja Ganapatipule (India)

Christmas Puja, Ganapatipule (India), 25 December 2000 [Shri Mataji speaks first in Hindi for about sixteen minutes] [Scanned from Divine Cool Breeze – Translation from Hindi to English] The reason for celeberaling this auspicious day is the birth of the Christ. Very little is known about Jesus Christ because in young age he left his house and after returning he lived only up to the age of thirty year But dunng this short period he did tremendous work After his death, his twelve disciples spread Christianity. They also faced problems as you have to face sometimes But these twelve disciples did tremendous work. Their followers. In the beginning, were known as Gnostics, meaning ‘Those who have known’ The origin of this word is from ‘Gna’ meaning To Know’ These people were harassed and tortured by the priests of that time So in the beginning it was very difficult to convince people of Christ s thoughts People were not seif realised Jesus Christ had said it again and again ‘Know Thyself. ‘Know Thyself Without realising the significance of self realisation people started spreading the religion. Without knowing the Self, religion could not be spread because gradually such religion becomes Adharmas Same thing happened with Christian religion It is written that Jesus Chnst went to a wedding party There he put his finger in the water and converted it tn to wine It is written in Hebrew language thatthe taste of this water changed in to that of the wine. ‘Wine’ in Hebrew Read More …

Talk to Sahaja Yogis, first response to falsehood Los Angeles Ashram, Los Angeles (United States)

Talk at Los Angeles Ashram. Los Angeles (USA), 3 December 2000. I’ve been here for now quite some time, I think. And, I want to really tell you something important that Los Angeles is a very, very important area. And, compared to all other counties and states, Los Angeles has not taken such a big stride the way it started. And especially when I had a program here, very few people came in after that. What is the reason for that? I tried to find out. First of all, you must realize your own personal responsibility, that you all have got Sahaja Yoga absolutely free; but you have a certain debt and that debt is that you have to give Realizations to others. If you just have it for yourself and leave only to your leaders to work it out, it will never work out. How many people have you given realization? You have to count it. Because after a certain state of your achievement, you become very creative, extremely creative. At this age also I am working, but what I find, once you get your realization, you are settled down with yourself and you become like a monk. We don’t want to have monks and priests. What do we want to have? Sahaja Yogis who will talk about Sahaja Yoga to people, who will develop Sahaja Yoga and create more Sahaja Yogis. So you have to count how many Sahaja Yogis you have created. Yesterday, you saw Anand. Anand Read More …

Diwali Puja Los Angeles (United States)

Diwali Puja. Lake Piru, near Los Angeles, California (USA) – 29 October 2000. It’s a great day today for the whole world that we are celebrating this Diwali Puja in America. It’s very important. Here, where people have been able to earn money, to have lots of money sometimes, and are also people who are ruined completely because of money. When we talk of Diwali we should understand that – why on a Diwali day we have all these lights? What is the combination of lights and the Lakshmi who was born in the water, who stands in the water? Why this combination is there? She was standing in the water, as we know, a symbol of prosperity; that is built in the human awareness that he can prosper. Animals don’t prosper. They all have their maryadas, trees have their maryadas. Only the human being can prosper. But if they have no sense of their own maryadas then there’s very ruinous, and ruinous for the whole world. So the lights are there that all the people who have Lakshmi’s blessings must enlighten themselves, must have lights, and they should enlighten others also. But actually, as soon as they get the Lakshmi, so-called, they become absolutely blind, and they forget what is behind the blessings of the Lakshmi. First of all, as we see, how this symbol of Lakshmi represents, I have told you before also, that a person who has Lakshmi should be very generous. [With] one hand she’s giving Read More …

11th Day of Navaratri Campus, Cabella Ligure (Italy)

Navaratri Puja. Cabella Ligure (Italy), 8 October 2000. Today we are going to worship the Devi, called as Amba, and by many other names. She is the last, we should say, the “residual power”. When She has done everything, She becomes the Kundalini and settles in the triangular bone of yours. This is the Mooladhar Chakra. But actually She is expressed more on the left side, because, that time, She is purely the Amba. This left side is a very, very important thing for all the human beings. If you have no left side, you cannot balance yourself, to begin with. And it is said that She gives you a real personality of a Sahaja Yogi. That is, your left side, if it is weak, then you have to worship Her, and request Her that: “Please enrich our left side.” By enriching your left side, what She does, She is a comforter, so what does She give you? First of all, She makes you rest. It’s said that She makes you rest. That is, She makes you sleep. If you are too much thinking about future and you are so much indulging into the futuristic planning, you have some problems. But the best thing is, if you can sleep, then it is a great comfort, it is a very great comfort to you, that you can sleep and that you can take some rest. Without Her, you cannot sleep: absence of Her, you cannot sleep. So sleeping is a very Read More …

Evening Program, Nishat Khan Concert, Eve of Navaratri Puja Campus, Cabella Ligure (Italy)

Evening Program before Navaratri Puja DAY – 1 06.10.2000 Cabella TAPE – 1 2:47:06 …Art, not only that but all the intricate patterns of it. I was overjoyed to see Sahaja yoginis and Sahaja yogis dancing so well and I hope that will change the styles of their walk. (Shri Mataji and people in audience laugh) When I came first to London long time back with my daughters, they used to wonder look at women here and they said mummy they all walk like horse. I said really, see their hair also going like, going up and down and the way they walk. Big influence of horses I think on England. But that was just by the way I told him. But you must have noticed Pawar is a very humourous person because he comes from India, not only that from Maharashtra and he belongs to the same caste as mine. So they are known for their humour. And in his humour he has tried to entertain you very well. I must say this, he’s such an expert on Kathak. To understand it, I think aa.. you require little knowledge about the percussions. If you have that knowledge then you will understand how it is difficult, how it is intricate and how it is creative to produce this. It’s a very, very long study, long work, they have to do and practices after practices. That’s how the Indian art is. But I was surprised that when Sahaja yogis go in Read More …

Talk about all Chakras Errol Douglas, London (England)

Public Program. Errol Douglas Gallery, London (UK) – 28 September 2000. I thank Mr. Emro for inviting Me to such a unique type of gathering. The subject is very interesting that how Sahaja Yoga can help beauty. Now Sahaja Yoga, as you know, here it is shown that there is a power in your triangular bone, here, as you see. And this is in every human being – every. And this power, has to be awakened. Then it passes through these six centers. The seventh one low below there, the number one, and pierces through your fontanel bone area and connects you to the Divine. As a result of that, all these centers who are responsible, they are responsible for our physical, mental, emotional and also spiritual being, all of them are enlightened and integrated. It, this power is in everyone but to talk about it, people don’t believe in it. You must have the experience of it. And once you have the experience, you’ll be amazed, how many things happen to you which you cannot even imagine. It’s very kind of him to have called me here, that way I’ve met many people of that kind but nobody has tried to invite others who could share this experience. Now coming to the point of beauty, I must tell you the Divine is the most beautiful thing, because it creates all beautiful things. You see in the nature, every leaf is different from another. Such a variety. Also, if you Read More …

You must have desire to settle down Holland Park School, London (England)

Public Program in Holland Park School. London (UK), 27 September 2000. I am very happy to see so many people here to know about Sahaja Yoga in all its details, but in this short time what can you be told? That firstly you got your realization, you felt the cool breeze all right and that it was an experience, but beyond this experience we have to settle down. It is very, very important that you must have desire to settle down. You don’t know the importance of your personality. You are the one who’ll save this world. Because the salvation of the whole world is not possible with Myself and you people, who will be really developed, it will be such a force.I told about England yesterday, another thing is that England is the heart of the universe I think. Everything circulates from here, whatever happens small or big it circulates. It is not that only England has many newspapers or television centers but somehow it circulates everywhere. I used to think only in India, it’s not so. I’ve seen everywhere, every country, there’s news about England. Even in America, even in South America, I was surprised how people are worried about England so much that they want to know what’s happening in England. My own experience is this, that they get so upset with the things that upsets your country, not only that but anything that happens of a very small importance is noted down and they always tell Read More …

Today TV Interview. London (UK). TV host: Here is something a little more relaxing for you. Her name means mother [earth] and she claims to have the ability to produce a feelings of a blissful harmony. Great grandmother, Shri Mataji has followed us around the world and this week she brought her particular strand of yoga to the capital.

Without knowing the Self you cannot get rid of your problems Royal Albert Hall, London (England)

Royal Albert Hall Public Program 2000 I bow to all the seekers of truth. In these modern times it was prophesized that many, many people will be seeking the truth and you can see the proof of that. Many people will be seeking the truth because they will be fed up with the untruth, also they may find out that lot of superficial stuff is there, which is not satisfying at all. Is the blessing of these modern times, though we say modern times are the worst. Because of its oppression, because of its problem, people want to know the truth and they will know the truth also already. Also you have to know the truth about yourself. I have told you many times that the truth is that you are not this body, you are not this mind, you are not these emotions, but you are the pure spirit. That you are, all of you are, it’s not just a story I am telling you, it’s a fact. But when they say you should know yourself. In all the scriptures they have said one thing common, you should know yourself. Because if you do not know yourself how will you know the Divine? So first you must know yourself and the Self is within. The problem was how to enter inside to know the Self, to feel the Self, to feel the power of Self you had to go inside. And without knowing the Self you cannot get rid Read More …

On Torsion Area Holiday Inn London - Kensington Forum Hotel, London (England)

2000-09-23 VIP Reception, London, UK, DP-RAW I bow to all the seekers of Truth. These are special times that we have so many seekers of Truth. Surprisingly so many people these days want to know what is the truth. And the result some of them are lost also. But what is the truth, the truth is that you are not this body, this mind, this emotions this intelligence so called but you are the true spirit. All the scriptures have said that unless and until you know yourselves how you will know the divine. Because if we don’t know ourselves really we are not equipped to know the divine and so to know yourself is so important. This one is a thing people don’t understand because mostly they are written in poetry. And all of them has said that you should know yourself but how would you know yourself your self is within and   not without. So how to enter inside to know yourself is the problem. This problem is really so great that keeps out many people from the knowledge of knowing. Now I must tell you about myself that I myself has felt that people have a big big problem of knowing themselves though I knew myself very well. How to make others knowledgeable about themselves so I tried first to see problems of the people . Many people that my own I should say my subtler intelligence what’s the matter why can’t they feel themselves why Read More …

Interview Milan (Italy)

Interview, Milan, Italy, 2000-09-19 Interviewer: To be born a realized soul is a gift from God. Shri Mataji: Of course. Of course. Apart from that these days are many children who are children of the Sahaja Yogis are born realized. Yes, it’s very surprising that I think all the great souls want to take birth with the Sahaja Yogis. Interviewer: What is your opinion about hatha yoga? Hatha yoga is a thing which was preached by or written by Patanjali thousands of years back. And in those days, first they used to cleanse the person. It is Ashtanga, eight. There are eight Anga, means parts. And one of the parts is the wee bit of that is this exercise, the physical exercise. Shri Mataji: So his style was to cleanse a person first physically, then mentally, then emotionally, go on and on and on. And then he would get realization. One in a million would get realization. That was the tradition. So I have thought of the modern times. People have no time for anything. So Sahaja Yoga is a very quick method. First get your realization and then you correct yourself. And no obligation. You yourself know about yourself. Shri Mataji: For example, some Sahaja Yogi might come and say, Mother, I have a very bad Agnya. It means I have a very bad ego. But normally nobody says like that. That I am full of ego. But nobody says because suddenly introspection starts. And you want to correct Read More …

Marriages and Talk To Bridegrooms Palazzo Doria, Cabella Ligure (Italy)

Marriages, Talk To Bridegrooms Palazzo Doria, Cabella Ligure (Italy), September 17th, 2000 I didn’t give any lecture to the girls. I think it is more the responsibility of the men to make their marriages successful. Men have to understand that marriage is a very important part of your life. And your time and respect should be given for that. The way you care for your wife from the very beginning helps you a lot. You try and understand what she wants, what are her demands, anything – try to see that you show her your interest in her. From the very first day, be careful not to neglect her and to misunderstand her. She comes from another country, so she has her own upbringing, her own ideas – try to understand and respect them. Marriage is all joy, but you must take it up very seriously. It’s not just a joke. Specially in Sahaja Yoga, one should understand that marriage is a very important thing, by which you have a couple which are sanctified. And they carry the responsibility of making the Sahaja Yoga very successful. Sahaja Yoga is a great thing, because it can transform the whole world into a very beautiful place. And you are responsible for that. As men, you should understand your responsibility as a great person, who is the, sort of a head of the family. I – yesterday I told you that I don’t believe in divorce, but I expect you to be very Read More …

Shri Ganesha Puja: the sanctity of marriage Campus, Cabella Ligure (Italy)

Shri Ganesha Puja, “Your Innocence Will Save This World,” Cabella Ligure (Italy), 16 September 2000 Today, we have gathered here to do Ganesha Puja. I know very well that Ganesha is the symbol of purity, of sanctity, and worshipping the innocence. When you are worshipping Shri Ganesh, you have to know that He is the embodiment of innocence. I wonder if we understand the meaning of “innocence” or not. Innocence is a quality which is innate, which cannot be forced, which cannot be trained into. It’s just a quality, innate quality, within a human being. When he becomes Shri Ganesha’s disciple, he becomes an innocent person. Maybe you say that innocent persons are attacked by the cunning, by the aggressive, but innocence is such a great thing that it cannot be destroyed. It’s the quality of the Spirit. Innocence is the quality of the Spirit, and when this Spirit within you is awakened, you get the power of innocence, by which you overcome all that is negative, all that is wrong, all that is detrimental to your growth, spiritual understanding. So to be innocent is not possible. You have to be innocent, in the sense that you are innately innocent. This happens after Sahaja Yoga, after realization. And your power to fight all these wrong, negative feelings within you – and without – are absolutely supported, protected, by the Mother of Shri Ganesh. It’s difficult these days to tell somebody about innocence. But you know the life of Christ: He Read More …

Public Program Turin (Italy)

Public Program, Teatro Regio, Turin, 12 September 2000. I bow to all the seekers of truth. All the scriptures and all the masters, real masters, have said that you have to know yourself. They have also said that if you don’t know yourself you cannot know God. But how to know yourself is the problem. Because they said your Spirit, your Self is within yourself. If it is within yourself, then how to enter inside is the problem. For which our Creator must have done some arrangement. And that arrangement is that in your triangular bone, known as sacrum, there is a power called as Kundalini. This is called Kundalini because Kundali means coils, because it’s coiled in three and a half coils, that’s why it is called as Kundalini. This Kundalini, if it is awakened, then it passes through six centres, subtle centres, and pierces through your fontanel bone area. Whatever faith you may follow, whatever religion you may follow, whatever country you come from, whatever may be your race, all of you have got this power within you very nicely (…). To awaken this, you don’t have to do anything. Anybody who is already enlightened and awakened, can awaken your Kundalini. This Kundalini is your Mother, She’s your individual Mother, your own. Not only that, but She knows each and every thing about you. She knows your past and she knows your aspirations. So, as you know, when you were born, your mother is the one who took Read More …

Interview to Shri Mataji to an interviewer in the hotel. Question: What is love for you?Shri Mataji: Love? Love is the power of divinity. It’s the Divine. And that’s why this whole world was created out of love.Q.: So everybody has an inner instrument, but mostly they don’t use it. Why?Shri Mataji: Because of ignorance. Ignorance, you see, every human being is not equally aware.Q.: Is it possible to change this condition?Shri Mataji: Yes, it has to.Q.: In which way?Shri Mataji: By feeling the vibrations of that person on your fingertips. From the level of spirituality.Q.: Which is your mission in Italy?Shri Mataji: Everywhere, it is not only here. Because Sahaja Yoga is now in 86 countries, alright?

Kundalini will take you to the Truth Parchi di Nervi, Genoa (Italy)

Public Program, Parchi di Nervi, Genoa (Italy), 4 September 2000. First 12 minutes; bhajans and introduction in Italian.I bow to all the seekers of Truth.We have to know what is the Truth that we are seeking.The Truth is that you a not this body, this mind, these emotions, nor your intelligence but you are the Spirit, which we call as Self. It is written in every scripture that you have to seek your Self. Unless and until you know yourself, you cannot know God. This is the main reason why we have so many quarrels, wars in the name of God. But now it’s very easy for you to know your Self.As they have told you that there lies in your triangular bone a power which we call as Kundalini in India. Kundala means coils and because it is in three and a half coils it is called as kundalini. This has been said in all the religions; that you have this inner power by which you can know your Self. If it can be awakened it passes through six centres, as you have been told. These six centres are for your physical, mental, emotional being. Not only that but they sustain also your spiritual being.This kundalini is actually your own Mother. She is your individual Mother. She resides within you waiting for opportunity to get awakened. And as your mother, when she gave you the birth, she bore all the problems, the kundalini, in the same way, also works Read More …

Questions by doctors to Shri Mataji London (England)

Questions by doctors to Shri Mataji. Ealing, London (UK), 2000 (Regarding sinusitis) Shri Mataji: So the venue (mucus) which is very tough becomes loose, and the heat is absorbed. Dr. Rashid: Shri Mataji, would the onions need to be hot? Shri Mataji: [Yes, very hot.]As far as you can bear it. As far as you can bear it.  It’s a very simple thing. Especially if you have sinus, don’t travel. Dr. Rashid: (Hindi: Shri Mataji, we made a list of questions to ask You, because sometimes some yogis ask us questions and we’re not absolutely sure about them.) Shri Mataji: About diseases? Dr. Rashid: (Hindi: Yes, Shri Mataji, about them.) Shri Mataji: Chemotherapy I’m against. There’s no need. It’s a wrong thing, chemotherapy. You see, they produce heat. You lose your hair. Such a lot of heat. And other complications will come with heat, that is. But Sahaja Yoga is a very simple method. You do use heat, in the sense [that] you use camphor and also these candles. But candles should be big, thick and should give light. But you don’t put it inside the body. Dr. Spiro: So in general, for cancer, say, surgery or radiotherapy would be better than chemotherapy? Shri Mataji: Chemotherapy is absolutely dangerous. It goes from one to another. See – it is a left-sided problem, so chemotherapy gives you heat. With the heat, for the time being, the Left Side improves. That’s all. (But in reality it’s something else.) But you can give Read More …

Shri Krishna Puja: Spontaneity and Creativity Campus, Cabella Ligure (Italy)

Shri Krishna puja. Cabella Ligure (Italy), 20 August 2000. Today we are here to worship Shri Krishna within us.  As you know you all have been seeking before coming to Sahaj Yoga. You went to different places, read lots of books and also some of you were lost. And, in that seeking, perhaps you did not know what you were seeking. What you were seeking was to know yourself. In all religions it is said ‘know thyself’: is a common thing all of them have said. This is one point which is absolutely there, in every religion, ‘know thyself’, because without knowing yourself, you will not know God, you will not know spirituality. So the first step was to know yourself. And [for] that one, people did all kinds of tricks with you, they taught you in different ways and tried to actually loot you and cheat you. All those things [that] have happened, is finished.  So then you come to Sahaj Yoga and you get your Self-realisation. But what is the purpose of Self-realisation? Is to know God, or the Goddess, that is the purpose of Self-realisation.  But after getting Self-realisation what should happen to you? Many of you have lost interest in nonsensical things like drugs and all those things. You have lost interest also in reading useless books. You have lost interest in other habits, like drinking and all that. But that’s not enough, that’s not enough. That would happen in any way. What has to happen Read More …

Guru Puja: Shraddha Campus, Cabella Ligure (Italy)

Guru Puja, “Shraddha”. Cabella Ligure (Italy), 23 July 2000. Today we are here to know about guru principle. What does a guru do. Whatever you have, all the precious things within you, he discovers them for your knowledge. Actually it is all there – everything. All the knowledge, all the spirituality, all the joy, is there. (little laughter as a dog walks on stage) Right time! (more laughter). It’s all contained within you. Only thing the Guru does (is) makes you knowledgeable about your knowledge, about your own spirit. Everyone has the Spirit within himself. Everyone has the spirituality within himself. There is nothing that you get from outside. But before getting this knowledge, you are dealing, or you are living in ignorance. In that ignorance you do not know what treasure you have got within yourself. So the guru’s job is to make you know what you are. That is the first step. That it starts, that awakening within you by which you know that you are not this outside world, this is all an illusion. And you start getting enlightened within yourself. Some people get full light and some people get it gradually. Essence of all the religions is that you should know yourself. Those people who are fighting in the name of religion, you have to go and ask them, you have to enquire from them, “Did your religion make you know yourself?” If all the religions have said one thing [it’s that], you have to do Read More …

Weddings Canajoharie (United States)

Marriages, Canajoharie, United States, 03-07-2000 Talk to Bridegrooms: (13:46) After you have [UNCLEAR – each] listened to my lecture yesterday, you have to now understand one thing that the basic problem in this country is that the women are not respected as [UNCLEAR]. They are respected as career women or running some sort of a show or maybe working in offices – anything. Such women are respected. As a result of that, it’s a basic problem that the children are neglected. They are not groomed properly. They don’t know what is their worth, [UNCLEAR] their value, and they take to all kinds of bad things like drugs or bad gurus, then drinking. They take to all kinds of bad things. And for this I think the father is responsible because he does not respect his wife, he does not understand her value, and he doesn’t look after her. Now the solution in this country, what they have done, they have made a law that if a husband tortures or is not very happy and doesn’t respect and all that, then they can have a divorce. And this law also goes against the women in a way because they forget their responsibility as mothers. Because it’s money they are looking for, [UNCLEAR] and they think it’s better to divorce the husband and get the money. And children are not only neglected but also tortured and murdered as a result. So now for you, it is a great responsibility as Sahaja Yogis first Read More …

Adi Shakti Puja: Emotional Intelligence Nirmal Nagari, Canajoharie (United States)

Adi Shakti Puja. Nirmal Nagari, Canajoharie, NY (USA), 2 July 2000. Today we have come here to do the Adi Shakti Puja.I have already told you about the Adi Shakti, how She had to work out so many things in this world —first to create and then to create human beings through evolutionary process. After that, to comfort. Then to counsel.So many people here came on this Earth just to do the counselling. They told what was wrong, what was right, what should we do, what we should not do, what is self-respect and what is the duty of a human being as a superior-most creature. So many of Them came on this Earth. One after another, in every country, They came and Their counselling formed religions. Of course, you see the mess of the religions and that’s how Their life was wasted, that They formed religions after religions, by which only human beings were divided, divided to such an extent they hate each other. Hateful, somebody’s born in an X religion, he hates the person who follows the Y religion. While Those who came as counsellors talked about complete unity, complete oneness of human race, despite that, human brain, in its freedom, did all kinds of wrong things and created a country or, you can say the whole world, full of lots of problems arising out of religion.

Public Program, New York, United States of America, 16-06-2000 “…together they have been seeking, seeking, seeking, but what? And what are you supposed to get out of that seeking? You know very well in the scriptures, all of them, it is written: you have to know yourself. You don’t know yourself, that is the main point. First of all, you must know yourself. With all your seeking, with all your spending, doing all kinds of acrobatics, have you been able to know yourself? We must ask this question. Just because sometimes you feel very nice, you feel you are very peaceful, or you feel you are flying in the air – all these things, these are all gimmicks. These are all gimmicks and we have been doing all this all these years. I do not know what happens to our thinking and to our understanding of the Divine; the Divinity which is within you and what should happen to you, by which you know (first of all), you know yourself. This country is full of seekers, I know. And what I find that, being a capitalist country, they think even Divinity can be bought, even the Gurus can be bought. If you can buy somebody, if you retain somebody, they are your servants; how can they be your masters? One has to go into it and see for yourself: what have you got so far, or you got complete conditioned into it without knowing yourself. Today, at the very outset, Read More …

You cannot purchase the person who is going to give you your ascent Massey Theatre, New Westminster (Canada)

Public Program. Vancouver (Canada), 11 June 2000. I bow to all the seekers of truth. At the very outset, we should know what is the truth? And what are we seeking? In all the scriptures, it has been said that “Know thyself”. You have to know yourself. If you do not know yourself, your seeking will go on for ever. And that is the main problem, with the modern seekers, who are going from places to places, searching, they don’t know what, they don’t know what they have to have. Its long they have been doing it. They might have started very early and still they are going on with their trips (this word is not clearly audible) seeking which is not fulfilled. What is the reason for that? Because they have not known the truth, the absolute truth, and the truth about themselves. Unless and until you know that, unless and until you have that knowledge, it is absolutely useless running this race, or I’ll call the rat race of seeking. The first thing you must know that knowing yourself itself, is achieved only through your last evolutionary process, the last jumping. Without that you cannot do it. Now let us see if there is any description of that. In all the scriptures, they have talked, about one thing, that is you have to ascend, you have to rise, you have to know yourself within yourself. All the great saints have said that you have to know your ‘Self’ Read More …

Thoughtless awareness explained Berkeley (United States)

Public Program, Berkeley (USA). 5 June 2000. I bow to all the seekers of truth. I do not know how to thank the mayor of Oakland and mayor of Berkeley for being so kind to give this certificate to Me. I must say this is a wonderful country where people recognize something that is doing good work. Really remarkable it is. I had been here before, to Berkeley, because everybody tells Me that there are lots of seekers of truth in Berkeley. This is the thing that attracted Me very much. But first of all we should know what are we seeking all these days. Once you start seeking it goes on like a rat-race of seeking. Or have you been able to find something? So what do you have to find in your seeking? As you know, in all the scriptures it is been told that you have to know yourself. You don’t know yourself, you don’t know what problems you have within. People get into diseases without knowing until it develops into a very serious trouble. Also they go on hurting others, being jealous with others, being in tension and stress. All kind of problems come to them, and they don’t know why it happens, why, what is the reason? So today I’m going to tell you how you have to know yourself. First of all you must decide that you have been seeking, seeking, seeking and this is the place known for its seeking. It’s high time Read More …

Kundalini connects us to the all-pervading power of truth Pellissier Building and Wiltern Theatre, Los Angeles (United States)

Wiltern Theatre Public Program, Los Angeles USA. 1 June 2000. I bow to all the seekers of truth. At the very outset, I have to say we should know what is the truth. Everybody is seeking the truth but they have no idea as to what they should find. There is an urge within us because these times are special, and we are seeking. But still, we don’t have a clear-cut idea as to what we should seek and what we should achieve after our seeking. Now I would like to refer to all the great books on religion, about truth. They all have said that, “You have to know yourself” – knowing yourself is the point – and that you have to become the Spirit. It’s said in all these religions but though we can find that these religions are not really doing that. They are not yet able to give you the truth. And that’s why there is so much of conflict, so much of fights going on. They are all real religions no doubt, and the essence of every religion is the same. Despite all of that they are fighting in the name of religion. How can that be? It can be explained very well, that if we have lost our way we can go into opposite directions. So, when we know, we have to know ourselves. And that is our goal of life. That is how we are going to improve on our life as such. Read More …

The Subtle Side Of Islam Los Angeles (United States)

2000-05-28 Persian Public Program in Los Angeles I bow to all the seekers of truth. (Can’t hear me). I am very thankful to this association for inviting me to talk to you people. I went to Iran for the first time it was Iran I visited after I wanted to start Sahajayoga and at that time I found that Iranians were very open minded and wanted to know what is the secret of Islam, what is the beauty of Islam is, what is the subtle side of Islam is today the way (today the way) we see Islam we get frightened. Specially these are the days of your matam and I know about it everything, what had happened to Hasan and Hussain. You all have done a lot of penance for them and are still doing it. But now the time has come for all of you to know that,  their sacrifice, their kurbani has been completely fulfilled. After all, what did they want? They wanted whatever their father Ali wanted them to do. Also their mother Fatima. But we don’t know who they were? what incarnations they were? what was their job?  Mohammad Sahab has also said that, you have to know yourself. Also he has said that at  the time of Kiyama, the resurrection time, that’s the assurance he gave, your hands will speak. If that is not happening then means, we have not fulfilled the promise of Mohammad Sahab. How long are we going to have matam. Read More …

Talk after Sahasrara Puja: Penetrate Your Attention Campus, Cabella Ligure (Italy)

Talk after Sahasrara Puja, “Penetrate Your Attention”,. Cabella Ligure, Italy, 7 May 2000 It was really a wonderful idea to put my attention to all these fields of life which are very important and, as it is, I have attention on all of them and I care for all that. But I would say now you all people put in your attention to it, because it is you who can do something about it. You can start with the nature as they said is this: we have to be kind to the nature. We are having such problems. People are cutting out trees, doing all kinds of things, without even thinking that this is for the progeny [and] will become a desert. So, in the same way, for everything, for your fruits and agriculture, vibrations can really change it. We had in our garden, you won’t believe, a peony flower – just like this (Mother open’s her hands) even bigger than this, very bigger. We have never seen such a flower. We had also the tulips so big as that. I haven’t seen such tulips in my lifetime. With vibrations you can improve everywhere. Say, you go and see some politician, let’s see, or some political party, then you use your hands and give them bandhans all the time. You can sit on the table across and under the table you go on giving them bandhan. (laughter) You have powers, but if you don’t use your powers then it is Read More …
