Diwali puja, London (UK), 14 November 1982.
Today we are here, all of us, to celebrate a four day festival called as Diwali. Diwali, it comes from the word ‘dipali’; ‘dipali’ in Sanskrit. The word ‘dipa’ means ‘the lights’, and ‘ali’ means the ‘line’, the ‘rows’. Now, there are many things that have happened during these four days and that’s how it is celebrated with such a great enthusiasm.
The first thing is the day of the Lakshmi’s birth. […]

The Importance of Dedication and Devotion, Nirmala Palace – Nightingale Lane Ashram, London (United Kingdom), 6 August 1982.
The other day I talked to you about the importance of dedication in Sahaja Yoga and the devotion that one should have. Actually, when we are close to the mountain, we can’t see much of it, and that’s why we don’t realize the volume that is so close to us, the greatness that is facing us.
This is one of the illusions that works out for people who do not realize it mentally – […]

“Ego and Humility”. “Nirmala Palace” Nightingale Lane ashram, London (UK) – 7 June 1982.
We had a very good session, I should say, and a very successful trip in Portugal and even better in Spain. Portugal is a place where gurus have touched very nicely because people are too simple I think, and because they are too simple they are affected too hard. And I was really confronted with so many sick people there who have been to gurus, […]
