Shri Mahalakshmi Puja, Morning Trees and Willy Maes's House, Mechelen (Belgium)

Shri Mahalakshmi Puja, Mechelen (Belgium), 9 October 1987. It was so very nice to come to Belgium and have so many people for our program and I must say, now we are getting to people who are very sensitive. [translation follows – yes] It is a .. it is a new dimension I think, I feel, we are entering into. Because now we are really getting people who are seriously interested in their realization and are very respectful. And that aggressiveness is much less. You don’t find anybody being aggressive. So we can say, that now the road is paved for all of you to work it out in a Sahaj manner to bring them properly to Sahaja Yoga and settle them nicely. Now this Sahaj manner should be understood. In a Sahaj manner, when they come to you, you must know they are absolutely new to Sahaja Yoga. So first and foremost thing, you should not talk about Me. You should not tell them anything about Me; but you have to tell them about Sahaja Yoga and about yourself. Like you can say, “I had the same problem as you have.” Or you can say that “See, it took me more time then it took you.” It’s a little lie, but doesn’t matter. [Shri Mataji laughs.] You see, because first of all, you must understand human beings. If you tell them directly “You are bad” or “You are evil; you are bootish” then they will run away, though it Read More …

Shri Mahalakshmi Puja: Keep a balance on the Nabhi chakra Oude Stadsfeestzaal, Mechelen (Belgium)

Shri Mahalakshmi Puja. Malines (Belgium), 20 September 1986. Today we are going to worship the principle of Mahalakshmi in Belgium. Belgium has a speciality that it creates glass bangles for the Mother. That is, the bangles which are used as a beautiful musical accompaniment to the gait, to all the movements of the Goddess. It brings a delicacy in a woman; and gives a consciousness to the man or the men that there are ladies around. And the ladies are around who are married ladies, are very auspicious. And this auspiciousness is the one that is going to bring in this country or in any country whatsoever all the blessings. Also in Sanskrit language a bangle is called as Valaya, and that is the last stage which one has to reach in one’s ascent. That means the complete. Also, we are having here a puja for Holland which is the Jala Devata, is the Goddess of water. It comes from the word “marine”, the word Mary, Maria. All these words come from the word “marine”. In Holland as you know, the sea is above the land. We can say that the Guru is sitting at a higher position than the chela. And His knowledge is channelized into various channels. And all the wealth, the money, that is earned out of marine activities flow through the greatness of this ocean. So Dutch people are highly blessed people. They are very tall because Dattatreya is a very tall personality. (Laughter) And if Read More …

Talk to Sahaja Yogis: The Role of Belgium and Holland & Speech To Leaders Trees and Willy Maes's House, Mechelen (Belgium)

Role of Belgium and Holland, Malines/Mechelen (Belgium), 20 September 1986 And in Belgium I must say that the ladies have to be very good. Because Belgium and Holland are Left Nabhis. Actually, I didn’t say but it is so. Not to frighten (you), it’s very important. And in Left Nabhi, there are two very important organs are. The one is the spleen and another is the one, what you call that, which makes the sugar of the – [Gregoire, who translates into French: “The pancreas?”]. Pancreas. Gregoire: That is Austria? Shri Mataji: That is – pancreas is sharing. You see, what I’m saying that pancreas is Austria and also Holland we can say, because the style is the same. Gregoire: It figures because Austria ruled here, it was part of the Austrian empire. Shri Mataji: Yes, that’s why, this – so the Austria, is the Austrian influence is there. And more in Holland, it is more in Holland or…? Gregoire: No, more in Belgium. Shri Mataji: Oh I see. So that is how it is, it’s a sharing thing. So, the ladies of this place have to be good housewives, it’s very important. They have to be the Gruhalaxmis. The one is the Goddess of the household. And a very good example of that is this lady. You can’t hear her. [Somebody says something.] Shri Mataji: What he said? Gregoire: But then we’ll make only one translation, because it’s no point in translating in two languages. Shri Mataji: Flemish… Gregoire: Read More …

Bhajans Evening Oude Stadsfeestzaal, Mechelen (Belgium)

Music Program, 1986-0920, Belgium I am very much touched by the way this folk dance was presented. They must have done this dance long time back, many times in many ages. I felt all the village folk are sitting here and enjoying the folk dance. All the Belgians are sitting as if, there’s a tremendous feeling of unity with that, the joy they must have enjoyed throughout and today they are enjoying. That time they must have been very simple people, not so complicated, and must have been people who believed in God and who led a very dharmic life, today again you are back here, with the same quality, with the same understanding, with the same capacity to enjoy something so beautiful, spontaneous and joy-giving. I Thank you very much for all this, very happy to see you all here and that you are enjoying this all together, it’s a very good thing, we are all universal beings, but in that universality, we have different, different individualities which we have to enjoy each other beautifully. Thank you very much. Sahaja Yogi: Can we now please re-arrange the room in this way, that we look with our faces towards this screen and we can fill up the centre point. Shri Mataji: Before, before we do do that just a minute, I have few presents to offer to our leaders here. I couldn’t get anything you see I was going down, then I was surprised to see that in Belgium they Read More …
