Mahashivaratri Puja Pune (India)

Shivaratri Puja, Pune (India), 16 March 2003.
Shri Mataji is silent for about six minutes before speaking.
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. […]

Mahashivaratri Puja Pune (India)

Tonight we have gathered here to do Shri Shiva Puja. Those people who have a clean heart can only do Shiva Puja. Those whose heart is not clean cannot do Shiva Puja. It’s a simple principle of Shri Shivaratri.
As you have seen yesterday, we have snakes, or, these are horrible snakes guiding behind the Shiva Linga. The significance is this – those who are clean in heart, who are full of love for others, […]

Mahashivaratri Puja, Destructive Power of Shri Mahadeva New Delhi (India)

Mahashivaratri Puja, Delhi (India), 25 February 2001.
Today we are here to celebrate Mahashivaratri.  It’s a very great privilege for all of us to understand about Shri Mahadeva.  Unless and until you have got your Self Realisation you cannot understand what is the great personality, the character and the powers of Shri Mahadeva.  It is not easy to conceive – also to reach the depths – of his greatness, unless and until we are humble.  We have to be very humble to reach (arrive) at the Lotus Feet of Shri Mahadeva.  […]

Mahashivaratri Puja Pune (India)

Shivaratri Puja, Pune, India, 5 March 2000.
First, I’ll speak in English language, because we have so many people from foreign countries, and especially from Madras (Chennai) and also from Kerala, Hyderabad and Bangalore. All these people have come here, and I don’t know what other people are here, who have come from South and who do not yet understand Hindi language.
This Shivaratri has a special meaning, I think, because there is so much – if you read any newspaper in the morning, […]

Mahashivaratri Puja New Delhi (India)

Shri Siva puja. Delhi (India), 14 February 1999.

Today we have assembled here to do the puja of Shri Maha Deva – Shri Shiv Shankara. Because of Adi Shankaracharya’s emphasis people have taken up the Puja of Shiva in a big way.

Today we are going to do puja to Shiva, Shri Shiva. As you know, Shri Shiva is the reflection of Sadashiva within us.

His support to Adi Shakti is entirely, […]

Mahashivaratri Puja. Delhi (India), 14 March 1994.

It’s a great pleasure that from all over the world people have gathered to worship Shiva. Actually we should say it is Sadashiva that we are going to worship today. As you know the difference between Sadashiva and Shri Shiva. Sadashiva is the God Almighty and He is a witness of the play of the Primordial Mother.

The combination between Sadashiva and the Primordial Mother Adi Shakti is just like a moon and the moonlight or the sun or the sunlight. […]

SHIVRATRI PUJA TALK, Pune, 23.02.1990

Today is Shivratri and today is the day we pray to Lord Shiva. On the outside, we can gain mastery on our body, its movements, the mind, ego and various functions.

Mahashivratri Puja New Delhi (India)

1989-03-06 Shri Shiva Puja Delhi

(translated from Hindi)

First of all, the thing that was
created in this universe was Shri Ganesha. But even before Him and
also before Adi Shakti, the essence that was present, we can call it
as Sadashiva Tattwa
– Sadashiva. The power that emerged out of Sadashiva Tattwa was
what we call as Adi Shakti.

So
He is the first thing to exist in this universe, still exists and
shall eternally exist. […]

Shivaratri Puja, Bombay (India), 14 February 1988.
This part was spoken in Hindi
Today we are all come together to celebrate the Shiva Tattwa Puja.  Nowadays, in Sahaja Yoga, what we have achieved is by the Grace of the Shiva Tattwa.  Shiva Tattwa is the ultimate goal (establishment, completion) of pure desire. When the Kundalini gets awakened in us, pure desire takes us near and keeps us at the Shiva Tattwa. Beyond Shiva Tattwa is the safe refuge of the Atma.  […]

This punya nagari is called as Pune but in our scriptures, it is known as Punyapatnam.

It is a great divine coincidence that you are having the puja of Shri Shiva who is the source of Punyas in this place.

Mahashivaratri Puja, Utpatti – Adi Shakti aur Shiva ka Swaroop Mumbai (India)

1976-02-29 Mahashivaratri Puja: Utpatti – Adi Shakti aur Shiva ka Swaroop, Mumbai
[Talk in Hindi Version 1]
I have told you about the origin before. Because on the day of Mahashivratri, when there is a talk about Shivji then it has to begin with origin. How much He is primordial, means when there is a first manifestation of form of God almighty.
He is called as Sadashiva when He is enlightened from Bramha. That is why the one who is Shivji is called as Adi (primordial). […]
