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 twenty-five years back and could not do any thing about it, as there were lots of objections and this and that. But then somehow I planned the whole thing & it all worked out. [I am] Happy to see you all here that with all the difficulties, […]
New Year’s Eve Puja, Kalwe (India), 31 December 2001.
(translation from Hindi)
Today I got late and it is the power of your love which has brought Me here. Your Mother’s health is little disturbed and the desire is very strong and things are working out because of that. I want that your power of desire should get stronger, too. You should think for yourself what you have done in this regard. You should introspect and see that what hard work have you done for it. […]
New Year Puja, Kalwe, India. 31 December 2000.
Now, we are starting a New Year, and I wish you all a very happy and prosperous New Year.
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, […]
New Year’s eve Puja (English part). Kalve (India), 31 December 1998.
Firstly I will speak in English language as we have many Sahaja Yogis from abroad. They have asked me to talk about Indian culture today because Bombay is the place where Indian culture is disappearing, that’s what they say. But I don’t think so, because the roots are so deep that we cannot give up that culture so fast.
Now as it is for the people who are coming from other countries, […]
1995-10-25 Navavarsha (Hindi New Year) Delhi (part 2 translation missing)
Today is the auspicious occasion of the New year and auspicious blessings to you all. Every year, new year comes and keeps coming. But, the feeling of observing the new year, people don’t understand. People just wear new clothes, celebrate. People don’t think this way, that the new year is coming and what is new thing that we will do. However life is passing, it continues in the same way in the new year. […]
New Year Puja, Kalwe (India), January 1st, 1991
Translation from Hindi:
Today we are going to perform a Puja in a place close to Mumbai, or Bombay. The original name of Bombay was Mumbai. This contains three words – Mum, Amba, and Aiyee. In Marathi language we address Mother as Aiyee. Even in the Vedas, Adi Shakti was referred to as Eee. So the reflection of Adi Shakti is Aiyee. That is why Mother is called Aiyee. […]
New Year Puja, Sangli (India), January 1st, 1990
Yesterday’s experience was that the whole day I had to spend it with police people explaining to them. And now I feel that in Maharashtra, there is a rule of Mafia. And that, it is for us to face it and we have to prove it.
I am sorry some people were hurt so badly and I’ll think after Puja they’ll take you to the hospital. Here there is a very nice hospital where we have very good doctors. […]
1984-01-03, New Year Puja: Who Is A Sahaja Yogi?, Delhi
From Nirmala Yoga, Issue 18 (Nov.-Dec. 1983), Back Cover
Every moment is a NEW YEAR for a Sahaja Yogi because he lives in the present and neither in future nor in the past gone by. For him every moment is a New Year, a new surge of joy (UMANG), a new wave. Just as one, while already swimming in the ocean of love is lovingly tossed every moment by the love all around, […]
New Year’s Eve. Chelsham Road Ashram, London (UK), 31 December 1981.
So the New Year is coming, ’82’, expected to be a very dynamic year for Sahaja Yoga and Sahaja Yogis. Everything new becomes stale and never becomes new again, so whatever has gone has gone – ‘let bygones, be bygones’ [forget the past]. There have been very sweet memories sometimes, sometimes rather unhappy also but, on the whole, we are growing, all of us are realizing, […]
