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. […]

Makar Sankranti Puja Pune (India)

Sankranti Puja (excerpt). Pratishthan, Pune (India), 14 January 2001 .
For India, today is a very important day because the Sun is coming from the South to the North side. The most important thing in Sahaja Yoga is that you have to change & that’s what you should do to the Goddess with changed heart, full of love, affection and kindness. Therefore, hope you will spread Sahaja Yoga. It is very important – because you know my vision is too big and you have to really work hard to fulfill my vision. […]

Public Program, Kundalini ki jagruti se Mumbai (India)

2000-0312  Public Program, Kundalini ki Jagruti se, (With Kundalini Awakening), Mumbai
 
Translation from Hindi:
I bow to all the seekers of truth.  First I will speak in Hindi, and after that in Marathi;  because it is our National language, and I feel that everyone should at least have some knowledge of Hindi.  Of course there is no language like Marathi. This I agree.  But the person who knows Marathi should find it easy to know Hindi.  […]

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, […]

New Year’s eve Puja, Indian Culture Kalwa (India)

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, […]

Adi Shakti Puja Kalwa (India)

Shakti Puja. Kalwe (India), 31 December 1997.
Hindi part
Today we have gathered to do Puja of the Shakti. Shakti means all the Shaktis and not any one special Shakti. All these Shaktis are situated on all our chakras and without these Shaktis no work of the Devtas can be carried out. Like you know that the Shakti of Krishna is Radha and Ram’s Shakti is Sita, Vishnu’s is Laxmi. So in the same way the abode of the Shaktis is with the devtas. […]

Still somehow you have come up to such a level that I feel very proud of you and all of them should learn a lesson from you. […]

Shri Mahalakshmi Puja, The Universal Love Kalwa (India)

Shri Mahalakshmi Puja. Kalwe (India), 30 December 1992.
I would say those who have been worrying and all that should go into great meditation and understand that you are insulting yourself. You are saints. Why should you worry about what plane you are going to get, what you are not going to get? Shows that your level is very low, definitely. All those who have worried you have come here under My protection and you will go back under My protection! […]

Public Program Mumbai (India)

Public Program, 1991-03-19
About which he doesn’t know. Although in our India there has been a lot of work on Yoga but because of the onset of English rule all of us forgot our Great scriptures which worked a lot in the field of yoga. In Upanishads if you see particularly Shandilya Upanishad etc., it has been written long back that within you there is a power named kundalini and this power on getting awakened you can get your self realisation.

Puja Shrirampur (India)

India Tour Puja. Shrirampur (India), 12 December 1990.
We have come to this place with the idea that we’ll be comfortable in the other place as we were before, but you must have known that there’s a man who is quite devilish, and he has tried to make this funny arrangement just to extract some money from us for doing nothing.
What I have to tell you, that we should remember that when we are doing right in this Krita Yuga, […]

Puja Pune (India)

Puja in Pune (extracts), India, 3 December 1990.

So, welcome to all the Sahaja Yogis from abroad. So we start from today our Maharashtra Tour, which you can see is full of these hills and dales. Also, the atmosphere is going to be extremely rustic. Of course the comforts of this place have not been up to the mark, but next year it will be much better, I’m sure. We have decided to purchase even this plot of land, […]

Sahaja Culture
Now you see the western culture is coming so fast on your head and also another thing is that today low-level creations are coming, do you understand that part like dramas, like cinemas, like books so many also newspapers, very low level they are.

In 10 years we can change the whole world, Puja in Brahmapuri Brahmapuri (India)

Brahmapuri Puja. Brahmapuri (India), 30 December 1989.
I’m sorry what has happened yesterday, but I think the war has begun between the evil and good, and after all the good prevails. In these modern times, evil used to prevail over good but now in this Kruta Yuga the evil will be completely conquered by good, and not that but good will spread all over. The evil has the capacity to go to extremes and then to fall out of the evolutionary process completely, […]

Puja Brahmapuri (India)

Puja Talk, Brahmapuri (India), 20 December 1988.
Place, which we call as Brahmapuri here called, perhaps, may be because here Shri Ramadasa, the guru of Shivaji Maharaj, in these deep waters found the statue of Shri Rama, Sita, Lakshmana and Hanumana together. Then they were carried from here and put in a temple called Chapar, the place where I saw that also. And there we have Hanumanas. Eleven Hanumanas came out of the Mother Earth to say that he was the incarnation of Hanumana. […]

Puja Talk at India Tour. Pune (India), 17 December 1988.
So now welcome to you all for this Puna place. In the Shastras is described as Punya Patana, meaning the city of Punyas.

Adi Shakti Puja, Detachment Rahuri (India)

Adi Shakti Puja, “Detachment”, Rahuri (India), 11 December 1988.
The Puja has to start when it has to start.

Birthday Puja Mumbai (India)

Birthday Puja, Mumbai (India), 21 March 1988.
I have told them, in Marathi language because most of them are Maharashtrians here, that in every part of the country one has to work hard and one has to spread Sahaja Yoga with complete dedication and understanding. That today is the day for us to achieve that power, to absorb that power by which we are going to spread Sahaja Yoga all over the world.
It’s you who can enlighten other people. […]

Puja Talk, India Tour. Ganapatipule (India), 6 January 1988.

It is said that God is Satchitanand. He is truth, He is attention and He is joy. In Sahaja Yoga, first you have discovered the truth. Discover the truth on your fingertips. The truth that you can discover on your central nervous system is the truth. First you discover the truth and you can tell about it, talk about, explain about it but you cannot give it to others unless and until the other person gets Realization. […]

Being Bandhamukta – A free personality and Evening Program Ganapatipule (India)

Ganapatipule Seminar, India Tour. Ganapatipule (India), 5 January 1988.

From yesterday’s programme, and all these days, you must have realised that to get your Kundalini working out, to get Her rush towards the Sahastrara and to widen your Sushumna Nadi it is not necessary that you should sit for meditation for three to five hours. Of course, you must meditate for a short time because that is at a point where you are alone, one with your God. […]

Idea to start Yuva Shakti, Ganapatipule (India), 4 January 1988.
Mr. Pradhan is a very humble person. He didn’t tell you, that we have started a, I mean, he actually brought the idea to start a, another subsidiary you can call it, or whichever way you may say, another parallel movement, called as “Yuva Shakti”. Which is meant for the young people in Sahaja Yoga. For their guidance, for their expression, and for their dedication. And, […]

Today when I was coming from the shopping, I couldn’t get into the car. One foot was inside, and another would not leave it.

I had to stand outside ’till the whole thing was over. […]
