You are to be connected to divine power Athens, Hotel Novotel Athenes (Greece)

Public Program 2001-10-23 It so very kin do f you to have waited for such a long time. I am sorry I don’t know your language, but I can see how you love, love the truth and you want to have it. [not audible] . …that’s the most important thing. All the religions have said. But what is happening today is that all the religions are fighting among themselves. Why should it happen? Why shouldn’t we know ourselves? Are we afraid of ourselves? Because your self is beautiful! It is glorious. It is one that gives your own personality. And how many powers you have you don’t know them. Because you don’t know yourself. This is what we have to understand that let us know ourselves; what we are. That thing is the truth. That is truth that we don’t know what we are. That we have to know that truth. We talk of love all over the world, but we have no understanding as to what ocean of love we are. And in this ignorance where have, we reached? We hate each other, we torture everyone, we torture ourselves, where are we? There is no joy in our lives. There is no peace. Why? Why among human beings we have this problem? Because this one more step we have to move in our awareness. And which is not difficult. You cannot pay for it. And you cannot be jealous about it. It is a complete misunderstanding that drives us Read More …

5th Day of Navaratri: Overcome hatred with love Loutraki, Sportcamp (Greece)

Navaratri Puja. Loutraki (Greece), 21 October 2001. Today we have gathered here to do the Devi Puja. This Puja was performed many a times and Devi was requested by the Devas to save them from the tyranny of devilish people. Today, I feel the same way that we are now in the grip of a funny situation, that there are people who are themselves devils I think and also mesmerized by them, who are trying to do something which they should never have done. But they don’t know that there is a climax of everything and that point has arrived where all the good people, especially the Sahaja Yogis, should put all their mind to the destruction of these horrible personalities like Mahishasura. In those days it was very simple because devils came as devils and you could see them that they are devils and all their behaviour proved that they were devils. Why they did it? Why were they cruel? Because so-called ‘human beings’ as they are – they are not – they are by nature devilish and they want to do something by which they can destroy human beings and, good human beings. It is evident that the time has come for them to be destroyed. In no way I could be against Islam or ever to criticise Mohammed Sahib. He was divine no doubt and tried to do divine work but out of that divine work these stupid people have come up who accept those devilish people. Read More …

Athena – the Primordial Mother Athens, Caravel Hotel (Greece)

Public Program, Greece, 9 November 1999. I bow to all the seekers of truth. First of all, we have to know what is the truth we are seeking and how we are going to seek it and what is the proof that you have got the truth. Firstly, we must know that you cannot purchase the truth. It is, you cannot market it, because truth is love and love is compassion. So now, I am going to tell you about the truth, about how in Greece they knew about the truth. Yours is a very, very ancient country. And in our country also, in our old books, the ancient Puranas, it’s mentioned about your country. They have described Athena very clearly. And gradually this great country became absolutely ignorant of whatever they knew. Now between you and Me, I would like to tell you that there is a power within us in the triangular bone. Shri Mataji, aside: If you can move out then somebody can show you. OK? [Hindi] That is the bone which we call as sacrum. This name “sacrum” was given by Greeks in those days meaning sacred. That means they knew there is a sacred bone below the spinal cord. This is the triangular bone that existed and was having this power, which in India we call it Kundalini. Shri Mataji, aside: So soon? [Laughter] Sometimes Greek language is very long and sometimes very short. [Laughter] All right. Now this bone has this power and if you see Athena on Read More …

Diwali Puja: Remove all the darkness of Kali Yuga Delphi, Camping Apollon (Greece)

Diwali puja. Delphi (Greece), 7 November 1999. It is very, very fortunate and auspicious that we are celebrating the Diwali in Greece, specially in Delphi. It has a very ancient history, and as you know Athena resided here. She was the Primordial Mother. “Atha” in Sanskrit means “primordial.” So this place has been described, has been described even in the Puranas as “Manipur [navel] dvipa [island].” Manipur is the Nabhi. Also in Sanskrit Manipur means the Nabhi Chakra. So it’s described as the Manipur dvipa, is written “Manipur e dvipa.” Just imagine these Puranas, these ancient-time books – God knows how old they are, must be at least eight thousand or maybe more – and they have described Greece as the Manipur dvipa [the island of the navel], is the place of Nabhi and where resides the Adi Shakti, that’s the Athena. So I mean, how it was known to them – maybe through torsion area, I would say; but it is written very clearly, and same we find here is the place of Athena which is in the Nabhi. Also Athena is the Primordial Mother, they say expressed Herself first in the sea on the Nabhi itself. From there She did all Her work. Now we can say that in Her movement, when She came down as existence [as Mahakali] She created Shri Ganesha and then She went to the right side and created Mahasaraswati, the, we can say, the whole universe, all creations She created. And then She Read More …

Evening Program and Talk Delphi, Camping Apollon (Greece)

Talk during Evening Program Day, Delphi, Greece 2, 06/11/1999 [Talk starts at 1:30:43 on video] So first of all, I wish you all a very happy Diwali and a prosperous whole year, after this New year day. [Applause] The whole program, I must say, was overwhelmingly joyous and happy and such beautiful words have been said about enlightenment. You don’t know how happy I feel to see you all develop your enlightenment into such a joyful establishment of a, absolutely, a new generation of people. Tomorrow of course, I’ll tell you about Greece and about Adi Shakti. But today’s program, one after another, started expressing your higher awareness in everything. Of course, to begin with, we had very good groups from Benin and – who I have seen there? Sahaja Yogini: Ivory Coast. Shri Mataji: Hum? Sahaja Yogini: Ivory Coast. Shri Mataji: Ah! I always, I don’t know why, I forget this name “Ivory Coast”. I’ve been there, once, I’ve been there. And somehow, Ivory Coast, I don’t know why, it makes me feel that it is a place where people are like Ivory and their hearts are shining and glimmering with the hope for Me and for the whole world at large. I’m so overwhelmed that I don’t know what to say about everything. Then, the dramas that you had, the first one was so touching and so much realistic and the feelings that you have for India also made Me really crying with joy. I never expected that Read More …

Evening Program and Talk Delphi, Camping Apollon (Greece)

Evening Program Day 1, Delphi, Camping Apollon, 05/11/1999 Gregoire: Shri Mataji, about fifteen years ago, some of us wanted to seek the blessing of having a puja in Delphi and I remember we had prepared the program but it was not then to be. It was to be now. This is the last puja in the occident, in the west, and it is the last puja in the west in this second millennium Shri Mataji, and it feels like long time back you opened a page in Delphi and now you are closing a page, opening a new chapter of world history. Of course, we are still completely baffled at your mystery and completely fascinated by your magic Shri Mataji. We do not understand anything, but we feel that this moment is completely historical. And in the Greek civilisation, there were two trains: one Apollonian towards the heavens and the light and the other one Dionysian, more earthly and much more ambiguous. But, basically, it was right side and left side and the whole Apollonian, the whole development of the right side, somehow, was initiated in Greece and we pray that now, both right side and left side will be brought under the guidance of the Spirit Shri Mataji. Thank You for permitting us all to welcome You here in Delphi. Thank You Shri Mataji. 5:42 Pascal introduce the program: Benin starts. Ivory Cost. Greek collective. Video about Greece. Indian dance. A Qawali from Babamama. 1:46:45 Shri Mataji: After such Read More …

Unless and until we become the Truth we can never be satisfied in life Athens (Greece)

Public Program, 1993-04-28, Greece [Shri Mataji speaks from min 25:24] I bow to all the seekers of Truth. At the very outset, we have to know that truth is what it is. We cannot think about it, we cannot conceptualize it and we cannot have ideas about it. It was and it is and it will be, it is eternal. And Truth is Divine Love. There is one truth about you is that you are not this body, mind, intellect, emotions, ego but you are the Spirit. And the second truth is that there is a All-Pervading Power of Divine Love which does all living work. We see these beautiful flowers but we don’t understand how they have come up. We have a heart which beats, we don’t know how it beats by itself. So we take all living work for granted. But unless and until we know the Truth, unless and until we become the Truth we can never be satisfied in life. These modern times there are so many who are seeking the Truth. Those who are seeking will definitely find the Truth but you have to understand that Truth is something innate, your own power will find it. He has already explained to you about what you see here in this picture, about the Kundalini. I’ve come here to tell you about your own great heritage. You know you are born in this great country of Greece where there have been great philosophers but beyond that there Read More …

Interview on a Greek TV with Vagianatos Athens (Greece)

Interview on a Greek TV with Vagianatos, Athens (Greece), April 27th, 1993 Interviewer: Good evening, it is very strong feeling that so many times we are in another country although we are in this country. Tonight we have the opportunity of really make a long travel. A long travel in wisdom, in distance, in space, in our hearts, in truth. This is all the elements that are concentrated in the presence of a Holy Mother that we have invited here, and we are very grateful that we have You… Shri Mataji: Thank you… Interviewer: … all the way from one of the oldest civilizations. You know, we are very proud that we are members of a very old civilization… Shri Mataji: Good. Interviewer: … And very rarely we realize how other old civilizations shine in other places on the world. So we do welcome You here along with the truth You carry for us. We would like to ask You about this truth, and the way You see in this same world, this other country which is every country which is our heart. Shri Mataji: We have to know one thing, what is the truth is. The truth is actually we are not this body, mind, intellect, emotions, ego, but we are the Spirit. And in our evolutionary process we have reached the stage of human awareness, and beyond this there’s a little breakthrough by which we have to become the Spirit. That’s very simple and can be done very Read More …

Interview Athens (Greece)

Short Interview on TV, Athens, Greece, 1993-04-27 Sahaja Yoga means: “Saha” means “with”; “ja” means “born with”. So it is a right; every human being has got to be in union -that is Yoga- with the Divine Power. And it’s within yourself “Sahaj”, born with you spontaneous. [Cut in the video] Journalist: Explain to us what is Kundalini? Shri Mataji: Kundalini, as I told you, is the reflection of the Primordial Mother within us. And she is individually everybody’ mother. Now, she is anxious to give you your second birth. When she is awakened in the sacrum bone she rises upward and crosses through six centres, pierces through your fontanel bone area and reaches a point where you get connected to the All-pervading Power. It’s like, you can say that it’s like a cord you have to connect to the mains. So unless and until you are connected to your mains, you do not know what you are. Once you are connected then you start knowing that you are the Spirit. [Cut in the video] In the same way, it rises when it is awakened, very simple. But for that, you have to have somebody who has the authority to raise it, a spiritual authority. Supposing tomorrow, if you get your Realization, you can do it also. [Cut in the video] Journalist: What is the relationship between Kundalini and Goddess Athena and Mother Mary? Shri Mataji: Now “ata”, “ata” means, in Sanscrit language, “primordial”. So, according to us, Athena was Read More …

Shri Pallas Athena Puja: You have to be sincere and honest Athens, Sahaja Yoga Center in Athens (Greece)

Shri Pallas Athena Puja. Athens (Greece), 26 April 1993. It’s a very great day for Me to see so many Sahaja Yogis here who are from this country, Greece. When first I came to Greece, I told my husband that this country is full of vibrations and there have been many evolved souls in this country, but perhaps the people have lost their heritage, but the vibrations are in the atmosphere and one day Sahaja Yoga should prosper here very much. And somehow, we met some bureaucrats who were Greeks and the experience was not good with them and my husband said that “If You said the Greeks are really religious people, then look at these people. What are they doing to me?” I said, “They may be bureaucrats and, all over, bureaucrats, you can’t say what sort of people they could be.” But, on the whole, the vibrations were very, very good, no doubt, and I went to all the places in here, like I went to Delphi, I went up there to see Athena’s temple and everything. To all the places of interest, they took Me round, specially Me, because he was busy with his conference, so they took Me round. And everywhere I felt – even the sea I felt was so very beautiful. This was about – I think I came here at least about fifteen years back, maybe fourteen years back. And I find now the vibrations are coming back now through you people and Read More …

Talk to Sahaja Yogis Athens (Greece)

Talk to Sahaja Yogis, Athens, Greece, April 25th, 1993 Sahaja Yogi: We are working very hard there, all of them are working very hard for your coming here, Mother. Shri Mataji: Very sweet of you. Sahaja Yogi: With a lot of love. Shri Mataji: Very sweet of you really. Because there are so many seekers in Greece, I was sure about it. You have to tap the real people. And all these false Gurus did not come here, maybe. I don’t think they came. Did they? Sahaja Yogi: Most of them, they were not allowed to come in. Shri Mataji: Like Rajneesh was not allowed. Sahaja Yogi: Was not allowed. Maharashi, something like that, was not allowed. Some other fellow was not allowed to come in. And because Greek people don’t have too much money, so these false gurus do not prospect here. Shri Mataji: So they’re not attracted. Sahaja Yogi: They were not attracted. [Shri Mataji is laughing.] Shri Mataji: That’s very true. [Someone offers a Coca-Cola drink.] All right, thank you. So now what’s the program? You tell Me. Sahaja Yogi: Today Mother, rest for you Mother. You’ll be resting and tomorrow there will be by your grace a puja at the new centre. After tomorrow, it’s a press day. And Wednesday the public program. Shri Mataji: But when is the puja? Sahaja Yogi: Tomorrow. Tomorrow? Shri Mataji: What time? Sahaja Yogi: Any time, Mother, You also. After all, night?

Arrival Athens (Greece)

Arrival conversation in Athens, 25/04/1993 2:47 [To a baby] How are you? He’s brought so many Sahaja Yogis. 5:07Shri Mataji: So many are here, so many Greeks here. It’s a great promess to Me.Translate it. Greece should be the first country in Europe which should take to Sahaja Yoga.Because Greece is a – I mean it has a heritage, same heritage [as Indians]. And we have to give them faith in their heritage now. All that they have forgotten, they have to remember.I’m sure it’s going to work out very well now with such [inaudible; vibrations?].6:09It’s a, it’s an important country, as you know very well, Greece is very important, politically also and military wise.So it’s important that this country should have their own heritage back on themselves. Because so many people have learnt from you before, and again if this country comes up to its own level, every body will have to learn [from them?].So you all have to be very proud actually of Greek’s land. And that you have to take the responsability of transforming your country in a beautiful new age country.You can do it, it’s very simple.

Shri Lakshmi Puja and Talk before puja Hydra, Stamatis Boudouris summer house (Greece)

Shri Lakshmi Puja. Hydra (Greece), 24 June 1990 . Today we are going to celebrate the Puja of Lakshmi And I’ve already told you that Lakshmi came out of the sea. And Greece is the Nabhi of the universe. And whatever Lakshmi they have got, wealth, they have got it out of the sea faring activities there. So it is very apt that we should worship Lakshmi in Greece and understand what is the significance of Lakshmi is. Can you hear me there, all of you? Now I’ve described many a time, but, again I will describe it to you. Lakshmi is the one who is a Mother by nature. So a person who has Lakshmi, a person who has got wealth must have a motherly benevolent temperament; that’s one thing. Then another thing is that She stands on the lotus in the water. So a person who has got Lakshmi must have a balance. If he moves this side or that side, left or right side he immediately goes inside the bhavasagar. Secondly, Her one hand is giving and another hand there is protection like this. So, at least a person who has got Lakshmi money should be generous, he should be giving and right hand should protect all the people who are working under him or who are related to him, his relations or other things or any other organizations or anything that he is connected with he should try to patronize and protect it from all kinds Read More …

See the quality of the disciples of the gurus first Athens (Greece)

H.H. Shri Mataji Nirmala Devi, 1990-0621 Public Program Day 2, Athens, Greece. I bow to all the Seekers of Truth. Yesterday I told you what is the truth is. Truth is that you are the spirit and that there is an All Pervading Power, which does all the living work and looks after you also. Now the questions are some of the them are sensible, I’m happy that they are asking Me questions, which means that you have all the freedom to ask questions, there’s no mesmerism going on. The first question is about how to make out a false guru. First thing, I must say that that is a false guru will not give you all the freedom to ask questions, so you can’t object anymore. A guru who does not give you any freedom to ask questions, is not good. But you have to know that you cannot pay for the truth. For example, I can see with My eye that there is a carpet lying here. You know that. I don’t have to pay. I have got My eyes. In the same way, to know the truth, you cannot pay any money. The second point is that you must see what is the quality of the disciples of the gurus first. When you go to a shop, you want to buy something, first you find out from those who have bought, what do they have to say about it. You’ll be surprised, that none of these so Read More …

It is very important to understand what problems we are facing Athens (Greece)

Public Program Day 1, Greece, 1990-06-20 [introduction in Greek][Shri Mataji speaks from minute 3:53] I bow to all the seekers of truth. At the very outset we have to know that truth is what it is and we cannot treat nor can we understand it through this human awareness. But what is the truth? The truth is we are not this body, we are not these emotions, we are not this intellect, we are not our conditioning or our ego but we are pure Spirit. And the second things is that there is a very subtle power which is called as the All-Pervading Power of Divine Love which looks after all the living work. We see these beautiful flowers but we take them for granted, we don’t think how they are created so beautifully. All the religions have said one thing: is to seek the eternal and the [UNCLEAR] is to be treated with its own understanding and limitations but all the religions have deviated from this path of seeking the eternal. You are already told about this mechanism that exists within you for which you have to keep your minds open like scientists and if it works then you have to accept it as the truth. Today I think it is very important to understand what problems we are facing. We are not aware as to what problems are propping us. Now the problem of war is particularly [UNCLEAR] but the problem that is going to destroy us is Read More …

Ascend to super human level Athens, Hotel Grande Bretagne (Greece)

Public Programme Day 2 Athens, Greece, May 25, 1989 Shri Mataji: All right. Yesterday they spoke to you about the different centres we have within ourselves. These subtle centres were discovered thousands of years back by great saints. And Socrates also has talked about the gods which reside within us. And the knowledge about it was existent long time back. But there were two types of seeking going on alongside – two types of seeking. One was the devotion on the left hand side, and on the right hand side was the, we can say the intellectual. And devotion came to people because they felt there is something beyond this human life which thought of the creator – being there. And that we call as bhakti – is the devotion. But in the West it came as devotion to incarnations like Christ. That was… Aside: Is there a problem? Yogi: People want to come in and they don’t let them in, Shri Mataji. Shri Mataji: See they can sit in the centres, after all they are seekers. You see. They can sit in the centre here easily, it’s not so difficult. Could be. Poor things. What’s happening with them? I am sorry for this that people cannot – all of them cannot come inside. Translator: Shri Mataji, there are some empty places behind. We can tell the people. Somebody greek person can tell the people outside. Shri Mataji: I’m sorry for this, this hall is just small, you see. No. Read More …

Shri Pallas Athena Puja: The Origins and Role of Greece Athens, Stamatis Boudouris house (Greece)

Shri Pallas Athena Puja. Greece, 24 May 1989. Everything in Sahaja Yoga is very scientific, is all pre-planned I think, and is all significant. For example, today is Wednesday and we have never had any Puja on a Wednesday because I was born on Wednesday. So, I was thinking if the Puja starts before twelve o’clock, we’ll be able to manage it because I was born at twelve. So, every child has to sleep after twelve o’clock, you see, and so I couldn’t, I had to sleep. So, it’s so significant, you see. It’s the first time we are having a Puja on Wednesday, normally I don’t even travel on Wednesdays. So, you can imagine that it’s such a breakthrough, and I’m very happy that you all are ready for a Puja and that we could break this rule also, after such a long time, because it was impossible for me to keep awake after twelve, you see, I was trying, trying, trying and I knew that you all, also, were feeling very sleepy. So, it’s so mutual and it’s so simple. Alright. So, today we have gathered, really, remarkably, in the really centre of the Nabhi of the universe, and I don’t know how far I can go with the description of this great country which we call as Greece. Also, in the Puranas it is described as Manipura Dweep. The Manipur is the Nabhi Chakra – Manipur, and a “dweep” is an island. Island of the Manipura stays Read More …

What is the truth beyond this mundane life? Athens, Hotel Grande Bretagne (Greece)

Public Program Day 1, Hotel Grande Bretagne, Athens (Greece) 500 years before Christ, the great master Socrates [UNCLEAR in your country] told the whole world that we have to know ourselves. And he was wisdom personified. But he was killed. He didn’t do any harm. He just told everyone for their benevolence. He didn’t live for himself. And he lived for others. He did not take any money from anyone for his knowledge nor did he punish anyone but he was punished. 500 years later Christ came in. He said also, “Know thyself”. Every scripture is saying that “Know thyself.” Like Buddha did not even talk of God because he did not want to put attention of people away so he said, “First know thyself.” Maybe they were not given any chance to tell how to know themselves. But the time has come now. We can say that on the tree of life there were one or two flowers in the beginning but today it is the blossom time and so many are seeking the truth. Socrates could not have got so many people to listen to him in Greece. But today is the time that human awareness has evolved to that state that it wants to know the truth beyond this mundane life. Maybe one can say the situation is such today because we are waiting for a kind of a shock of our destruction or maybe we are confused and that we want to know the absolute. This Read More …

Radio Interview, The Innate ReligionAthens, Stamatis Boudouris house (Greece) 23/05/1989 Starts at 1:08 ….Inside. Because it’s very hot and inside, the house is very small. I hope it works out. You see, I didn’t expected so many people would be coming. So, I think, doesn’t matter, we’ll see about it. But, tonight became so cold inside the room. I was really frozen.Sahaja Yogi: For us, Shri Mataji, we sat all day in the sunlight a nd we don’t feel hot or anything. It has been very good. Shri Mataji: Dnyaneshwar has written about you people. He’s calling you people: “Martanda deta pahina” [sun; give; ?].The Surya is the Sun, without any heat in it.He’s discribed Sahaja Yogis: “Maartanda deta pahina” they are like Sun but there is no heat in them.“”Andremadji [unsure] a lajjene” “They are like Moon but there is no, no spots on them.“Lajjene” is a spot, is regarded as a kind of a thing you’re ashamed of. So without any spots to be ashamed of, is the description of a Dnyaneshwar about Sahaja Yogis.Wonderful description!If you – let it be, let it be, let it be there she wants to be with Me.Now, don’t pull her. Why do you want to pull her? She’s quite all right. Come here!Come here, come here!She’s feeling insulted now. Come, come, come, come.You are all right. Now, you’ll have chana? Come here, come!
