Christmas Puja Ganapatipule (India)

Christmas Puja, Ganapatipule (India), 25 December 2003. English Transcript Today is a great day because we are celebrating the birth of Jesus Christ. He was such a great spiritual personality, who had to suffer on the cross. This is what many people don’t understand, that why a man of his calibre, of his standing, of his spirituality, should have to go through so many ordeals in life. It is very easy to understand that he was born in a circumstances which was against him, which were against divine force. So to overcome that people tried to destroy Jesus Christ. And he did not feel the pain, he didn’t feel the absurdity of those people. On the contrary he went through all that ordeal with such courage and such dignity. So for us, what is there to see is that if you are divine and if you have powers of divinity, then you should have courage, and with that courage you can face all kinds of ordeals. On the whole, whenever you are on this earth there are problems of different types. You may belong to royal families, or maybe a poor person, there are always problems facing you. But Christ has shown by his life that, though he had to suffer so much, he was so patient and courageous. His life has given us an example, what we should be, how we should behave when we are facing problems because of ignorance of people. But today is a happy day Read More …

Diwali Puja: The Need for Sincerity Los Angeles (United States)

Diwali Puja. Los Angeles (USA), 9 November 2003. Today is the great day of Diwali.That means today is the great day of putting up (?) lights, lights of your heart together to make a greater light for the world to move in a proper direction. It’s a day of great joy, and those who join in this, are spreading also great joy. But the problems are there, as they say, but for us there is no problem because there is no darkness, we don’t see any darkness anywhere, we see lights, and lights, and lights. Then what is the thing missing, missing is our sincerity. We have to be very sincere with ourselves, because it is not just a borrowed love or a borrowed joy, but it is from within the source, it’s flowing, flowing and flowing. So that is to be awakened, and that love should flow, and our small petty things like jealousies and competitions and all those things which spoilus must be washed away. And it can be washed if your heart is full of love. Today is a day of spreading love, light of love, so that everybody feels enlightened and happy and forgets these petty problems.

Shri Ganesha Puja: They Are All Incarnations Campus, Cabella Ligure (Italy)

Shri Ganesha Puja. Cabella (Italy), 13 September 2003 Now we are facing little children. They are the ones who are incarnations. They are the ones who are going to lead humanity into some great advancement. The humanity has to be looked after. They are tomorrow’s humanity. And we are today’s. And what are we giving to them, for them to follow? What is their aim in life? It is very, very difficult to say. But with Sahaja Yoga, they will all go in the proper way. They’ll behave in a proper way. And the whole thing will be a different mass of Sahaja Yogis coming up. But it is the duty of bigger Sahaja Yogis to look after them, to have better moral standards, to have better lives, so that they follow your life and become genuinely good Sahaja Yogis. It’s a very big responsibility – perhaps we don’t recognize it, we don’t understand – but all these are little creatures which are after the image of great souls, and they should be brought up in that way, respected in that manner, and loved with great care. This is to be understood.  The problem with our elderly people is this: that we do not consider them [the children] to be considered, to be bothered about, to be understood about. We think we are too intelligent, too good, and we need not waste our energy with them. This is the trouble of the elderly people. But today when we are sitting Read More …

Shri Krishna Puja: Look Inside Pune (India)

Shri Krishna Puja (Hindi). Pune (India), 9 August 2003. [Translation from Hindi to English] Now we have to realize that Sahaja Yoga has spread a lot and in all corners of the world people respect Sahaja Yoga, but until and unless Sahaja Yoga is completely manifested within us, the people who respect Sahaja Yoga will not continue to do so. That is why it is essential that we look inside of us. The nature of Shri Krishna is that we look inside of us and see what are the things that put us in trouble. We should find that out. We should look towards ourselves, within ourselves and that is not such a difficult thing.When we want to see our face, we look in the mirror. Similarly, when we need to see our spirit, we should find out how to see it within us. Many Sahaja Yogis have asked Me, “Mother, how do we see what is within us and how we are doing?.” For that it is necessary that we ourselves should become very humble. If we lack humility, we will be clouded by our own thoughts. So in the life of Shri Krishna, first it was shown that he was just like a small child. Absolutely like an infant. Not knowing anything. He did not think anything of himself. He had his mother and he wanted to grow with the support of his mother. We should also look inside of ourselves and realize that we are like a Read More …

Guru Puja: A very big responsibility Campus, Cabella Ligure (Italy)

Guru Puja. Cabella Ligure (Italy), 13 July 2003. Today’s Puja is a very great Puja for me, because I suddenly find that my granddaughter is missing, and I got upset with it very much. Look at me, supposed to be Adi Shakti, and why should I get so upset about my granddaughter missing. It was just a human nature which I realised all of us have. If we have some responsibility and we are not there we get upset. Thank God there are very few children here, most of them have gone, but we are all children the way we worry, the way we are anxious. Today I would like all of you to say that a new year has come, and in this new year we all should have a new proposal about ourselves and that proposal is very difficult for people to make out, that we are not responsible for anyone. We are our own and we live with ourselves. It’s very difficult. Of course those who have no children are very happy people that way, but those who have, those who have certain responsibilities and commitments they are still hanging in the air, they are nowhere near Sahaja Yoga I must say. Our main responsibility is ourselves, is to know ourselves and to depend on ourselves. It is a very big responsibility because now as we will be having big functions and we might feel that we are lost in it. Please try to remember that you Read More …

Adi Shakti Puja: We are the singers of Shri Mataji Campus, Cabella Ligure (Italy)

After the Adi Shakti Puja, Cabella Ligure, 15 June 2003. After the short Puja it was sung with great joy the bhajan “Gondari”. In the end, Shri Mataji said: I am very happy all of you are here singing the song of Gondari.  Perhaps you do not know the meaning.  That is ‘We are the singers of Shri Mataji’.  And these are the songs sung by people who are villagers and they are singing this song that ‘We are singing the song of our Mother, with all our love for Her’.  And all that singing has come to you – is very, very happy for Me because these are only ordinary villagers and how you have accepted such a nice mood and songs from them. May God bless you. Thank you very much.  Thank you very much.

Inauguration Of Vishwa Nirmal Prem Ashram Noida (India)

Inauguration (from Hindi). Noida, Uttar Pradesh (India), 27 March 2003. You must allow me today to speak in Hindi Language.In our country there are many problems. One of the biggest problems is that here men and women are seen from different angles or different points of view. I don’t know how this happened because it is not written so in our Shastras (Holy Books). It is written in the Shastras that “Yatra pujyante nari” (Sanskrit) meaning that where women are worshipped, “Tatra ramante devata” : there reside the Gods. So I do not know how it is that in our country such a situation has culminated where there is no respect toward women, especially here in U.P.(Uttar Pradesh).I was married in UP and I was surprised to see that in UP housewives do not have any status. There is no difference between them and the domestic servants. How this happened and why is this still happening?? – Because the people are not awakened toward this. Sometimes I feel like crying seeing how they have taken advantage of women. They have thrown them out of home, without any reason ! Just like that, thrown out of house!! And I have had so many experiences in my life which deeply aggrieved me. I did not understand why they are maltreating women? And there are no arrangements to house them! And when they are thrown out of their house there is nobody to take care of them. Poor women!, they were thrown out Read More …

An Ideal Indian New Delhi (India)

2003-03-24 Public Program [English translation from Hindi] My heart is brimming with joy at receiving such welcome from you all! I cannot think what to say and what not to say! I am watching you all, seeing where all you have seated yourselves, maybe we have arrived in this stadium for the first time and you people are seated scattered away. On this occasion, I am wondering what to say to you people, what subject to speak on. Most of you people are SYs and those who are not, will become. This works out in the same fashion all the time! In the past times, receiving the gift of SY was considered extremely tough but now the times have changed. Now your kundalini can awaken in a rather lucidly and in SY itself, you can attain your spiritual place. It is said that it is within you, yourself, the Spirit resides. Hence, within you, a miraculous happening should occur so that you can get acquainted with your own Spirit. This spiritual pursuit was considered highly unattainable in the past eras. Penances worth a thousand years, roaming around in the jungles, offering one’s services to the rishis-munis (hermits, sages), as an outcome of such noble acts, not all but extremely few people would attain this spiritual benefit (of kundalini awakening). But nowadays, the times have ripened to the extent that if human beings do not receive this gift (of kundalini awakening), wonder where he will land, what will happen to him! Read More …

Birthday Puja: A very big challenge Nirmal Dham, New Delhi (India)

Birthday Puja, Nirmal Dham, Delhi (India), 21 March 2003. (Hindi/English) (Translated from Hindi) Eternal blessings from Me to all the Sahaja Yogis. You all have gathered here today, in such a large number, to celebrate My birthday. How should I thank you? I just don’t understand. So many people have come from other countries also. And even from our country, so many people have gathered here. Seeing all this, My heart fills with joy. I don’t know what extraordinary task I have done that you all have gathered here to celebrate My birthday. You all have a very big heart that today you all have come to this far off place and have honoured Me. I don’t have words to tell you people how overjoyed this has made Me. (English speech) What I was telling them, the way you are celebrating My birthday, I’m overjoyed and I don’t know how to express that joy which is really overflowing. I really don’t know what have I done for you that you have come up with such enthusiasm, with such love. It’s your great heart which is appreciating My humble work. All over the world, Sahaja Yoga has spread and again spreading like fire. That showed it was the need of the world. It was the need of the people. That’s why they have taken to Sahaj Yog with such enthusiasm. I could understand in a country like India, where they have talked about Self Realization, but in a country which is Read More …

Birthday Felicitations New Delhi (India)

Birthday Felicitations. Nirmal Dham, Delhi (India), 20 March 2003. Talk by Sir C. P. Shrivastava Madam Mayor, Shri Rahul Bajaj, Shri Debu Chaudhary, honored guests, dear Sahaj Yogis and Sahaj Yoginis Let me first clarify that we are celebrating only one birthday, and that is birthday of your Mataji. I am, you know statistically about fifteen million people living on this Earth must have been born on twenty-first of March. I’m one of them. Just doesn’t matter whether I’m there or not, but we’re celebrating today Her birthday and let’s keep to that. What I wanted to say has been said already by many, but I want to mention to you that we are celebrating today a momentous event which happened eighty years ago, She was born with a mission. Her mission was to transform humanity. For the last thirty-three years, She has been at it almost day and night. She has traveled to villages in India on foot, in the bullock cart, in a car. She has traveled by plane. She has been to many parts of the world and it is because of that individual, personal endeavor that we see what we see today. She is an Incarnation, because I don’t believe that any human being can transform a single other human being. It’s easy to deal with the machinery [applause]. In my office, I try to improve someone, I fail miserably. She has transformed hundreds of thousands of people. And when I look at you, I feel Read More …

Mahashivaratri Puja: He is forgiveness personified Pune (India)

Shivaratri Puja, Pune (India), 16 March 2003. Today, we are going to worship, Shri Shiva, Sadashiva. His quality is that, he is forgiveness personified. The amount of forgiveness He has, has helped many of us to exist, Otherwise this world, would have perished. so many would have been finished, because you know what is the condition of human beings. They don’t understand what is wrong, what is right. Apart from that, they cannot forgive. They go on making mistakes, doesn’t matter, But they cannot forgive others. This is what we have to learn from Shri Sadashiva. [Translation from Hindi] Today we are going to worship Shri Sadashiva. His specific nature is that, His capacity to forgive is so much, that no human can compete with Him. He forgives all our mistakes. If He doesn’t, the whole world could have come to an end. Because within him there is a power, with which He can destroy the whole creation. Though forgiveness is His inherent quality, this power of distruction within Him, is active and keeps growing. This same power, with which He forgives, when it matures or rather when it grows in abundance, He can destroy the whole world also. So first of all we need to acquire his quality of forgiveness. For small, insignificant and forgivable matters, We keep fighting. We fight over very petty, unimportant subjects. But He is forgiving to the extent that, He keeps forrgiving until, He reaches the point, From where, the distructive powers within him Read More …

Shivaratri Puja House in Pratishthan, Pune (India)

Shivaratri Puja, Pune, India 28-02-2003 [English translation from Hindi] His biggest Quality is forgiveness. If he doesn’t forgive, then nothing will be spared. He is very forgiving and because of his forgiving nature, we are surviving. ….Such Mahadev we should ask him such qualities as forgiveness, his nature, powers, characters and despite such qualities he is full forgiveness, he takes into consideration that we are humans and he forgives. We should learn that. We cling to small petty things and fight. This is not Mahadev’s puja, if you follow him then forgive everyone. Everyone one has some faults instead of looking at their faults look at your own. There was time when there were many forgiving people but now don’t know people get angry easily and are non-forgiving and they are not ashamed of it. But if you worship Shiv and take him as your Guru then you have to be forgiving. He has such powers that he can destroy anyone yet he so forgiving. Many people worship him to seek forgiveness “ Oh! God Forgive us” but he is all-forgiving. His forgiveness has magnanimity. Those who cannot forgive cannot be Sahaj yogis.The proof of a Sahaj Yogi is in forgiveness from inside from heart, he does not calculate what wrong has been done to him. Forgiveness is like ocean and to take that ocean inside oneself then only Mahadev will be established inside us. But I see that we get angry first not forgiveness. If you do not know Read More …

Concert & Inauguration of Vaitarna Music Academy Vaitarna (India)

Inauguration speech for the opening of the new Music Academy (transcr. only English part). Vaitarna (India), 1 January 2003. I’m sorry I spoke in Hindi language, because to talk about My father in any other language is very difficult, though he was a master of English language and he used to read a lot. He had a big library of his own where I also learned English, because my medium of instruction was Marathi. I’d never studied Hindi or English. But because of his library, because I was very fond of reading, I picked up English, whatever it is, and also Hindi. Now they all say I speak very good English and very good Hindi, I am surprised, because to Me they were foreign languages. And when I did my matriculation also, I had a very small book of English, and for inter-science also I had a very small book. And in the medical college of course there was no question of any language, but because I used to read a lot. So I would suggest to all of you to read, read more. But don’t read nonsensical books, very good famous books you must read. That’s how I developed my language, and I had to do so well. By reading that, I could know also so much about the human failings. I didn’t know human beings have those failings, I didn’t know. I was absolutely beyond them. After reading everything, I came to know that there are human beings, Read More …

New Year’s Eve Puja P K Salve Kala Pratishthan - Vaitarna Music Academy, Tembha (India)

New Year’s Eve Puja. Music Academy of Vaitarna, Bombay (India), 31 December 2002. I am very, very happy to see so many of you coming down here for the program. Actually I bought this land at least at least twenty-five years back and couldn’t do any thing about it, as they had lots of objections this and that. But then somehow I planned the whole thing & it all worked out. Happy to see you all here that with all those difficulties, ultimately now you find so many Sahaja Yogis attending this program of My Puja. I must remember My brother Baba who has worked very hard for the propagation of Indian music, classical music, all types of art, whatever he could do. It is a very sad thing that today he is not here to see you all. He has done so much work relentlessly without expecting any reward whatsoever. And I wish you could have him as your ideal and that’ll work it out everything, in that way. There is one thing about him I know – he never tried to show off anything. Very intelligent, educated man but he caught hold of all the people of ordinary living and he looked after them & he promoted their skill of music and art. With the same idea, I decided to have this place dedicated to his idea of propagating music & art. And I am happy to see, that, that idea has materialized. But I wish My brother Read More …

Christmas Puja Ganapatipule (India)

Christmas Puja, Ganapatipule (India), 25 December 2002. Merry Christmas to you all.According to Sahaja Yoga, Christ is settled on your Agnya Chakra. His whole life is depicting the qualities of a person who is a realised soul. What He has suggested in His own life is that you should not have any greed or lust. The way these days people are greedy all over the world is really shocking. Right from the childhood, our children also learn to ask for this or ask for that; only complete satisfaction in life can give you that equanimity, that balance by which you do not hanker after things.These days even India has become very much westernised in the sense they are also very much wanting to have this and that. Actually, now in America suddenly, with this happening, people are getting to spirituality. They come to spirituality because they think they have not found any satisfaction anywhere. But we have to see from His life, the great life of Christ. First He was born in a small little hut, as you saw many of them when you come round. Very much satisfied. And He was put in a cradle which was all covered with dry, very dry grass. Can you imagine? And then He sacrificed His life on the cross. Whole thing is a story of a sacrifice. Because He had a power, power of Spirit, that He could sacrifice anything, even sacrifice His own life, so you can understand the greatness of Read More …

Diwali Puja: The Importance of Meditation Los Angeles (United States)

Diwali Puja. Lake Piru, Los Angeles, (USA) – 3 November 2002. I wish you a very, very happy Diwali. To see all of you here, is itself such a joy for me that you all have taken to Sahaja Yoga in such a beautiful way. It’s your own, Self is your own, Spirit is your own, but to take to Self is difficult. It’s only your desires, I think, which is being fulfilled. And that’s how you have got your self-realisation. It cannot be forced, as you know very well. It has to work out only with your desire, only with your surrendering. No use talking about it. No use convincing about it. What works out is your desire, simple as that. The power of desire within you works it out. There are many, who are not here, who have got their realisation all over the world. I remember all of them, and all of you should remember them. Today is a nice day when we can think of all those who are enlightened in this world. That’s the real Diwali: the enlightenment of human beings. It’s not candle, it’s not some lamp, but it’s human beings. If they are enlightened, then there’s no problem any more left. The problems come with the people who are not enlightened, because they are in the darkness. They are groping in the darkness, and some of them don’t know also that they are completely ignorant of realities. Once you come to Sahaja Yoga, Read More …

Navaratri Puja: Develop Wisdom Through Meditation, Bhakti & Shraddha Los Angeles (United States)

Navaratri Puja, Wisdom Through Meditation, Bhakti & Shraddha, Los Angeles (USA), 27 October 2002. Today, we are going to worship the Goddess. That’s the, first the left side programming is with Her, but later on, at Sahasrara, She’s the Adi Shakti.And, on the left side, whatever She does is already written, as you must have seen, because She’s the memory and that She’s the wisdom and, that She protects you, is shown when She uses Her power over the Ganas.There are Ganas that are, as we know, responsible for all kinds of corrections in you.These are the Ganas which act through the left side. As we know very well that cancer is caused by the problems of the Left side. And, on the left side are these Ganas, which are completely in unison with the Devi’s powers.She doesn’t have to tell them, She doesn’t have to guide them, they are already built up like that. And these Ganas are the ones which, I should say, target, they target the diseases and cure you.We have cured many cancer patients and many left-sided people through the Ganas.But Ganas won’t listen to anybody else.And Ganapati is their leader, I should say, their controlling power.So, if your Ganapati is alright then problems are less, but if the Ganapati is not alright, then all kinds of problems can come up and they can torture you. This is one of the things I am so particular about, that we must get our Ganeshas corrected.The other day Read More …

Interview Los Angeles (United States)

Interview, Los Angeles, date unknown Shri Mataji: „I find today in this country people are seeking, and they don’t know what they are seeking. It is a problem to them. They don’t understand why are they so restless, why can’t they understand things, why can’t they sleep. All kinds of problems are there, while they should be at peace with themselves. But there’s something going on within in the evolutionary process. In the evolution, we have reached up to the human awareness, but there is something beyond that. If so, it is a longing to know what it is, unknown, as to the reason of it, as to the understanding of it. So today I am just going to explain to you why people are seeking.  People think they are not complete, they are not whole. They think, why you are dragged into so many things, for what purpose? For example some people are going to different countries, some are taking to drinking, some are taking to drugs; all these things are not convincing. And they think that, „We have to have something beyond in our awareness, our awareness is not complete.“ This is – can be said that, the nature itself is trying to work it out within us – that we have to evolve more to become complete. Also, it is that desire, that is so strong that we start getting imbalanced, getting into troubles, and taking to things which are not good for our evolution.  So we Read More …

Shri Ganesha Puja: You are in the war with Me & Departure Frankfurt (Germany)

Shri Ganesha Puja, Frankfurt (Germany), 27 September 2002. It’s so nice to come back after such a long time. And whenever I came, you always had gathered in a very big hall. We met, and that’s how the Sahaja Yoga started growing. It’s very important for you people from specially from Germany, Austria. These are the people who were in the war. And now you are in the war with Me. We have to fight, fight the evil. You know how the world is. We have to fight them and we have to take them out of ignorance. You are such a support for this because we have to change human beings. They have to become good people very fast. Once they get their Self-realization, the change will start. Now in England and also in Italy, what they are doing is to give realization to people on the street. Giving on the street, thousands of people now have become realized souls. It’s a very big thing because once you get your realization, you become the Spirit and all the goodness should come to you. If there is anything evil, bad in you that will go away. It’s spreading so fast everywhere and should also spread in those countries who are there. There’s no need, no need for you to fight or quarrel because you have got the divine help. You have got all the help all the help from the Divine, and this is what is to be understood: that Read More …

Talk and Marriages Campus, Cabella Ligure (Italy)

Talk to Brides I’m very happy to see you all in such a beautiful dresses, and also in a good mood to get married. You must keep up your attitude – all right? You should be happy people, and try to keep your husbands also happy. Your happiness can create happiness for the children. Now one thing I want to warn you: not to tell your husband about anything which was wrong in your past life. That’s not to be done, there’s no need, because you are now Sahaja Yogis. You are changed people and whatever has happened has happened, you need not talk about it or tell him anything about it, but talk of the future and the present – all right? So, be sensible! It’s your sensibility which is going to make a happy married life. If you become insensible, if there’s no wisdom, then marriages will fail. Some girls, I’ve seen, dominate their husbands too much. There is no need to dominate. If you love the husband that’s how the domination is. It’s the best way is to love your husband, look after him, do whatever is needed, because no use showing off that you are from a better society or a better culture or a better family background. It’s only you who can show that you are really a good person and your goodness will win him over. So it’s only the wife who makes or spoils the marriage. And I have to tell you very Read More …

Shri Ganesha Puja: You Should Be Joyous And Give Joy To Others Campus, Cabella Ligure (Italy)

Shri Ganesha Puja: You Should Be Joyous and Give Joy to Others Shri Ganesha Puja. Cabella Ligure (Italy), 14 September 2002. Today we have gathered here to worship Shri Ganesha. Shri Ganesha is the Deity of innocence. When we are born as children, it is Shri Ganesha who is acting, and we are very innocent. And it is such a powerful thing, that with this innocence children survive under many circumstances. And we love them because they are innocent. We enjoy them because they are innocent. Once we start growing, our Sahasrara also gets closed and we develop all kinds of funny things that enters into us and doesn’t go out. It’s just there. It doesn’t go out.Innocence has a great effect on our character and on our sense of chastity. Actually, when you are innocent, you don’t know what is not chastity, what is being unchaste, what is being cunning. You are innocent and you are looked after by Shri Ganesha Himself. Anybody who tries to harm an innocent person, Shri Ganesha looks after you and manages you. Many people who are innocent in this world – of course there are very few – but they become so detached from all worldly problems, like lust and greed and many others, because they are so pure that nothing can spoil them and malign them. This is such a great blessing we have, that innocence is actually created in us. And it was created much before—all the innocence, everything was created Read More …

Devi Puja: The heart is closed, which has to open out Ealing Ashram, London (England)

Devi Puja, Ealing Ashram, London (UK), 30 August 2002 Please be seated.[Individual conversation with sahaja yogis:Yogini: This little one is very much like Ananya. The little one I saw.Yogi: Sakshi.Derek Lee: Alan’s little girl. She is gone upstairs, she will come down here. (Aside to a yogi) You should say, they should come.Shri Mataji: (Hindi) How are you, Richard? Good. From tomorrow we will start it regularly, all right? Massage now. I’m sorry…] I don’t know what to say! (Laughter)I’m living in this house now, and it was very nice because Sahaja Yogis were living here and they enjoyed my stay here, I think.But we have to change and progress – that’s the point is. With every change you must progress, otherwise it has no meaning, the change has no meaning. So now they are thinking that I should now be in the house here. I think it’s a good idea. Derek Lee: Marvellous news for us, Mother.(Applause) Shri Mataji, we’d like to thank you for coming to live here, Shri Mataji, in Ealing and in London for so long. And we know that, from this house, all kinds of blessings have come out for us. And I wanted to say it was a little bit symbolic, Shri Mataji. When you came here this house was in complete degradation and ruin and now you have built it up and reconstructed it, renovated it, into the palace that it is.And we hope, Shri Mataji, you can achieve the same marvellous transformation Read More …

You are a spiritual personality New York Society for Ethical Culture, New York City (United States)

Public Program. New York (USA), 22 August 2002. I bow to all the seekers of truth. Actually, we are all seeking the truth. So many of us, but so far, so many couldn’t find and they are lost. But what is the truth? What is the truth about yourself? The truth is that you are not this body, you are not these emotions but what are you? You are the spirit. All the great saints and incarnations have said that you are the spirit and what we are trying to find out is our selfhood. We are after that research about ourselves. We’ve done lots of mistakes also by misguided people but I must say that there is a built-in arrangement within us, every one of you, which will take you to that selfhood, which will give you that self-realization. It’s very surprising that they have not talked about Kundalini so far. There is a power within all of you which is the Kundalini, which is three and a half-coiled energy in your, I should say, behind your triangular bone, or it is inside it and is waiting for that moment when it can be awakened and it can pass through the different centers piercing through your fontanel bone area. And that’s how you get your self-realization, that you feel cool breeze coming out of your fontanel bone area. It’s an actualization. It is not My lecture or reading or anything. It’s actualization which has to take place. If you don’t get it, doesn’t matter. Read More …

Shri Kubera Puja Talk: Give up from your heart Canajoharie (United States)

Shri Kubera Puja, Canajoharie (USA), 18 Agosto 2002 Today we are going to worship Shri Krishna as a very great personality. And you know why He came on this Earth to establish, this is the new form of, not Virat, not Virata, but a form by which this country became so prosperous. And by His advent only He created a beautiful mentality among the people, how to develop this culture with dharma. And you had very great leaders, who followed Him and who worshipped Him in a way and created a new world of this America.But, unfortunately, as the time passed on, His form vanished from the minds of the people. The reason was Krishna was represented here by very, very wrong type of people, who had no idea about Shri Krishna, thatHe was a great master of wealth, that he knew how to use the wealth and how to create the wealth with dharma, not with adharma.They all forgot about it, completely and gradually started using maneuvering powers, all kinds of, all kinds of adharmic things, cheating, grabbing money, spending their money in absolutely useless things.He’s Kubera. He doesn’t need any money, of course. He achieves money and not only that, He lived in money.They said that He created a golden house for Him, absolutely made with gold in Dwarika, but it’s submerged in the water, in the sea and nobody believed that it is true. But now they have found out His house under the waters, very deep Read More …

Guru Purnima Puja: What is our duty? Campus, Cabella Ligure (Italy)

Guru Purnima Puja, Cabella Ligure (Italy), 24 July 2002. Guru Purnima Puja, Cabella Ligure (Italy), 24 July 2002. It’s very interesting the way you’ve found out. Today is the real Guru Purnima. The Purnima is the day when the moon is full. I knew this, but for Sahaja Yogis which we have to arrange Saturday, Sunday, Monday – Friday, Saturday, Sunday. Whenever it is, whether it is on that date or not, we have to arrange it. So in that case, this time it was a day, I think two days before we arranged it, so it doesn’t matter. After all, moon is there for us and we are for moon, so it cannot be something that would have very wrong in it. I have already told you such a lot about the Guru principle. In the Guru principle, we have seen people who came on this Earth. They were all mostly all born realised actually, and they never gave realisation to anyone to – a very big difference. They were all born as realised souls and they became as Sufis and they’re called by different names, but they were not given Self Realisation, they had it, and because of their Self Realisation, as they had, they have so much of knowledge and that is what they try to impart to people.They knew all about Chakras – everything they knew, somehow, must be in their last lives achievements that they knew it, perhaps some of them were disciples of other very great people. I don’t know how they had full ideas to what Read More …

Guru Puja: First you must have development of your left side Campus, Cabella Ligure (Italy)

Guru Puja. Cabella Ligure (Italy), 21 July 2002. (A loud thunder-clap followed by applause) In India they were all waiting for the monsoons and they are so much worried because the rain did not come. So, I was giving bandhan to the rain and it came here (applause and Mother laughs). And now also they have told, on the television, that it is going to rain in India. But first in Italy! (laughter) I was told that in Italy you needed rain very much and the first rain you had, few days back, and now this is the second one. Because all the understanding of the problems of our farmers is there.  And the rain, you see, is so kind that it works at the right time. I am surprised at the quick behaviour and obedience of the rain. Today is a great day, for all of us, because we are celebrating the Guru Puja and remembering all the great Gurus who came on this earth to teach the world about the truth. So many of them were [there]. And they tried their level best to explain to humanity what is spirituality. But it’s such a disparity that people never understood that spirituality is the most important thing we need. That we have to be one with the Divine Power. All their endeavour have been in the wrong direction. First of course they were very intelligent, more than animals, and started seeking, not the truth, but some sort of a self-emancipation I should say, or, Read More …

Evening Program, The Betrayed Prophet, Eve of Guru Puja Campus, Cabella Ligure (Italy)

2002-07-20 Talk after Evening Program of the play: The Betrayed Prophet (Eve of Guru Puja) My heart is so full, because in this great drama you have really shown the beauty of Mohammed life; how people have misused and troubled all the world around; and now, they are in trouble. He never wanted that but how human beings misunderstand such a great prophet like him. I must congratulate Guido and the all of you for acting so well and what a drama it was! The synchronization and all that also technique things you… I don’t know what to say… in every way it was a very, very beautiful drama. It has touched My heart because Mohammed is not understood by His followers, not the ones who opposed Him; such a great man of compassion, such a great man of spirituality has been so much misunderstood and Islamic world, so called, and non-Islamic, so called, they never understood the greatness of Mohammed Sahib. I mean, I was really very much touched by this because he was my loveliest son and I worshipped Him. May God bless His soul and all of you who followed Him in spirit. Spread the news, get more people into Sahaja Yoga; very easy to get Mohammed’s disciples into Sahaja Yoga if they are really His disciples. It’s not difficult to get them into Sahaja Yoga because He has already described, described that at the time of resurrection your hands will speak. He has already said so Read More …

Adi Shakti Puja: Use Your Right Side For Giving Realization Campus, Cabella Ligure (Italy)

Adi Shakti Puja. Cabella Ligure (Italy), 23 June 2002. Today it’s a different day altogether for all of you because this is the puja of Adi Shakti, and Adi Shakti is a complete personality. It’s not only the left side that you know. You all know only the left side, from Shri Ganesha through the ascent of different, different chakras on the left side. I didn’t want to tell you about the right side to begin with, because those who have gone through the right side got just lost. They got Gayatri Mantra from the writings but they didn’t know what it was about. They just used to learn it by heart. They didn’t also know the real meaning of it, and that is how they moved on the right side and, I don’t know, they landed up at the Agnya; and then they were trying for the Self-realisation. They were promised that, if you do this right side properly, you will reach to the ultimate goal of Self-realisation, but none of them reached it. Most of them got into a terrible temper, terrible temper of cursing others, of destroying others. All these things they learnt through their right-side movement. There was no Kundalini awakening, and they were made to go up to the, at the most, Agnya Chakra, and then they collapsed into different places of complete ignorance. All these books were written without understanding that it’s not easy to go via right side, but the best was to Read More …

Sahasrara Puja:  first of all we have to correct our ego Campus, Cabella Ligure (Italy)

Sahasrara Puja. Cabella Ligure (Italy), 5 May 2002. Today is a very great day I must say, to celebrate Sahasrara, the puja of Sahasrara. It’s a very unique thing that has happened that your Sahasraras were opened out. There were some very few people in this whole world; there were some Sufis, there were some saints, some other people also in China and all. But very few, very few got their Sahasrara opened out. So whatever they said, or [was] written, was never understood by the people; they actually tortured them, they crucified them and did all kinds of horrible things, because they couldn’t bear somebody getting this Realisation. So, it’s a very great day because collectively the Sahasrara has been opened. Every one of you have got it; also all over the world you have many people who have got their Sahasraras open; of course we need many more, for them to understand what is this great event of such a collective opening of Sahasrara. Some have grown very much after getting their Realisation; very much. They have understood Sahaj Yoga very well and they have developed their depth, and their consciousness is really a great awareness of oneness with the Divine. To be one with the Divine is the greatest blessing for human beings. So far they were human beings at a lower level of existence, and they had all the problems of that level: jealousies, hatred; all kinds of problems that are today – of fighting, of Read More …

You all have to become Sufis Lütfi Kirdar Congress Palace, Istanbul (Turkey)

Public Program Lütfi Kırdar Congress Palace, Istanbul (Turkey), 23 April 2002, I bow to all the seekers of Truth. I’m very happy to see you all here to know about the Truth. Whatever is told about your subtle being is not yet known, because [UNCLEAR] in your awareness you don’t have yet that subtleness. That’s the last, the jump into your awareness of collectivity. I must tell you… I must tell you that in this country, that is Turkey, you had  so many Sufis. They called themselves Sufis because they were cleaned and they were spiritually endowed. They talked of Ruh (spirit) but nobody knew about Ruh and when they talked of Ruh they did not know how to explain – they talked of Ruhani life, but they could not explain what is Ruhani (spiritual) life. Ruhani is the life when you are connected with the all-pervading power of Divine love. It is a different area into which you enter. Because they could not explain, they wrote everything beautifully, describing it. But now the time has come for you to get your Ruhani life. Which is a very important thing, because if you are not connected to the divine power, whatever you may try, whatever how so ever you will pray, how much you will read Kuran, it won’t help. Human life is governed with jealousy, with temper, with all kinds of malignant things. And we can see all over the world the problems are just spreading. Once they will Read More …

Easter Puja: You are bound by the religion of love and joy Kilyos, Kilya Hotel Kilyos (Turkey)

Easter Puja. Istanbul (Turkey), 21 April 2002. Today we have come here to worship Jesus Christ and His Mother. It’s such a coincidence that the Mother of Christ came and stayed in Turkey. Isn’t it surprising that She should come here after the crucifixion of Christ and stayed here. I wonder if He also came with Her later on? But they say then He went to Kashmir and She was also there. Quite possible, on their way, they might have gone there. So we are here to worship them. According to Sahaja Yoga, She was the incarnation of Mahalakshmi and She’s the one who sacrificed Her Son for the sake of religion. But unfortunately, nobody understood Her value. Nobody saw that She was such a great spiritual personality. Only through Sahaja Yoga you can understand that She was a very great personality who gave birth to Christ. It is very unfortunate that She was not respected, specially in the Islamic world. Because of that, the women in the Islamic culture have no place. My experience is very sad about them. We have started an organization for the rehabilitation of women who are destitutes and all of them who have applied are Muslim ladies – very sad. While Muhammed-sahib has said that ‘you must look after your mother’, despite that, all these women – some of them have eight children, ten children – have come to this destitute home. Of course, we have to give them place. We have to look Read More …

Kundalini is Your Mother Sindhi Ceremonial Centre, Dubai (United Arab Emirates)

Public Program, Dubai, 2002-04-17 I bow to all the seekers of truth.There are people who are seeking the truth but maybe they don’t know how to find it. And we don’t know what is the truth is. There are two problems that we don’t know how to find the truth. Now already in our Shastras, in everything, in Granth Sahib, everywhere, it is written that you have to receive your self-knowledge – Atmagnyan. You have to have knowledge about yourself. But we think we have the knowledge.But it’s not absolutely correct to say that. What you have to see, whatever knowledge you have, is it known collectively? Among all the saints all the Great prophets, the knowledge is the same. So, we have to go to that level of awareness. We have to reach that higher state by which we know the truth, not only the truth but we know how definite that it is the truth. It is not just because I am saying, it’s not just because some others are saying, because some books are saying. But it is something that you should know yourself. And how do you verify it is the problem, whether it is the truth or not, whether it is the reality or not. Can you imagine it’s all built in within us that we have an instrument within us which can give us full idea as to what are we, what we have, what problems we have and how to solve them. For Read More …

Gudi Padwa Puja Palam Vihar, Gurgaon (India)

Gudi Padwa Puja, Palam Vihar, Gurgaon (India), 13 April 2002. (Hindi) [Translation from Hindi to English] The festival of Gudi Padwa that we are celebrating today,is also celebrated in other parts of India, even in the South. Everywhere this festival is celebrated. The ‘Samvat’ calendar year that was started (By King Vikramaditya) and the calendar year started by Shalivahanas, both start on the same day. That day is today. All over the country this day (New Year) is celebrated. All the important dates in the year are fixed on that basis especially the festivals. We people (Indians) follow the lunar calendar whereas the westerners follow the sun calendar. That’s why their festival dates do not change. Here (in India ) every festival is based on the position of the moon. And that’s why the dates keep changing and the same festival falls on different dates, in different years. The reason why we give importance to the moon and keep all our dates according to its position, is that the moon has an influence on human beings. The sun does not. Along with the moon, other planets also have influence on us. That is why we follow the lunar calendar and fix our festivals accordingly. There is one festival however, where the date is as per position of the sun. When the sun starts its movement from southern hemisphere to the northern hemisphere, that date is celebrated as a festival (Sankranti).  In our country the science of astrology is also based Read More …

Doctor’s conference at AIIMS Jawaharlal Auditorium, New Delhi (India)

Doctor’s conference at AIIMS, New Delhi (India). 2 April 2002. I bow to all the seekers of truth. Speaking before the doctors I think of My college days, while I was also studying medicine but luckily or unluckily our college stopped completely, in Lahore and I had to give up My studies. Not that I had no faith in this western education of medicine but it was a good chance by connecting this to that and understanding what is missing in the western medical education. The missing point is this, that human beings are considered in the medical science as something very individual and not connected with the whole. We are all connected with the whole. But how to convince people that you are all connected with the whole and that you are not singled out? As we are connected with the whole all our problems are connected with the whole, you cannot just consider somebody as the patient of one thing and another patient of another thing, could be that one person who has one trouble, could be having so many other troubles, so many other connections which we do not locate in the western medical science. For example, to see a person medically very sick, may be, but you don’t know, what is his mental condition? What is he doing mentally? Is he all right mentally or only he is physically something wrong with him? Now absolutely we know about so many things, like say, medically we have Read More …

Love is the potential power in us Jawaharlal Nehru Stadium, New Delhi (India)

Public Program. New Delhi (India) 24 March 2002. Translation from Hindi to English I pay my respect to the seekers of truth who have gathered here today. What is basically lacking everywhere is the Love. All persons take it as a mere word or expression. Love basically is the potential power within us. We do experience or feels it when we look at our Mother. What I am trying to say is that it is the Spirit enlightenment with in oneself. There is no discretion. It doesn’t distinguish or is discrete between any animals or human. I sometime feel animals better understand the love. In fact the element of hatred should completely be finished from the human. Love is an ocean within and you find their tide within us. It is basically the power within us. By speaking of power one immediately takes it as something destructive state (Pralaya) but in fact it give us the inner peace. It is latent inside. It is covered inside. It is the power of love within ourselves that cleanse us and brings happiness and joy with in. If we see….. We have enemies residing within ourselves in the form of Rakshasa, eession and pleasure like consumption of liquor or spending on women. This money always goes into spending in sinful lifestyle. But at times by giving it to others you can get so much joy.Next I find persons run after power and position. Why after power and position? One feels everyone should salute Read More …
