Havan after Guru Puja Shri Mataji: First we are going to have the “namaaz”. We have to learn how to do “namaaz” today, because it’s a Guru’s Day. Now where is…? – Come along! All of you who are here should learn how to do “namaaz”. Now stand here. Facing Me. Come along! Gregoire: I would like that everybody sit down, so that everybody can see. Shri Mataji: No, you have to stand up, because you have to do accordingly. Djamel: I was thinking you all stand up and stand in rows. You have to leave a space in front of you, there has to be a certain space so that you bow down. Shri Mataji: May I have some water to drink. Gregoire: We should all stand in a circle, leaving space between each circle around Shri Mataji, so that we can bow. So everybody stands in three or four circles, with one meter at least between the two circles Shri Mataji: Where are you going to have lunch? Sahaja Yogini: We are going to bring it here Mother. Shri Mataji: All right, that’s all right. Are you all listening now? Just move it backwards. Saha Yogi: Mother I will put this over here which will shade you a little. Shri Mataji: Sorry.

Guru Puja: Awakening the Principle of Guru Lodge Hill Centre, Pulborough (England)

Guru Puja, “Awakening the Principle of Guru”. Lodge Hill (UK), 24 July 1983. Today you all have gathered here to do the Guru Puja. Your Guru is a Mother first and then a Guru and that has given Me a greater help. We have had before also many Guru Pujas, mostly in England. And you should wonder why Mother always somehow is doing Guru Puja in London. The time falls in such a way that it is in Guru Puja, I am here, during that time I have to be in London. So many years we have been doing Guru Puja in England. All things happen if according to Ritambhara Pragnya then there must be some reason why Mother is here in England for a Guru Puja. It is stated in the Puranas that the Adi Guru Datattreya worshipped Mother along the banks of the river Tamasa. Tamasa is the same as your Thames and He himself came and worshipped here. And the druids, those who had the manifestation of the Stonehenge and all that, are originated from that time in this great country of Shiva, of the Spirit. So, the Spirit resides here as in the heart of human beings, and the Sahasrara is in the Himalayas where Sadashiva exists at the Kailasha. This is the great secret of we having so many Guru Pujas here. To culminate it today and to this special type of Guru Puja in the year of the sixtieth birthday of your Mother is, Read More …

Guru Purnima Seminar Part 1: Rutumbhara Pradnya Lodge Hill Centre, Pulborough (England)

Rutumbhara Pradnya part I, Guru Puja seminar, Lodge Hill (UK), 23 July 1983. It is my immense joy to see all of you here from various parts of this world. When your heart is so full the words are too poor to carry the intensity. I wish you could understand that intensity, through your heart. It’s all been arranged, I think, by the Divine, that we should meet here all of us in such a wonderful surrounding, in the Nature. That something great should happen to all of us. That we should achieve really something great this time. Now as the time is short, I will tell you, first of all, a few things about meditation now, then we’ll have two more talks, I hope so. ‘Meditation’ is a very general word. It is not a word that explains all the three steps one has to take for meditating. But in Sanskrit language they have very clearly said how you have to move in your meditation. First is called as dhyan, and second is called as dharana, and the third is called as samadhi. Luckily Sahaja Yoga is a, such a thing that you get everything in a bundle. You avoided everything else and you got the samadhi part. That’s the beauty of it. Firstly the dhyana: First, when you have seeking, you put your attention towards the object of your worship. That’s called as ‘dhyana’. And the dharana is the one in which you put all your effort, concentrate all Read More …
