Devi Puja talk: About the Indian Sages Aurangabad (India)

Talk to yogis (India tour). Aurangabad (India), 18 December 1989. So now most of you are here and it’s a nice place for all of you to be here from different countries. Aurangabad has a special significance in My own life because My forefathers came from a place very near from here called as Paithan but originally known as Prathisthan. I think about two years back we were there. And this is the place where Valmiki, who wrote the great epic of Ramayana, lived here and when Sita was taken away from Her house and when She was pregnant, there was another ashram of his in Nepal where She stayed and then She was brought here. That’s why you see a kind of a culture of Maharashtra going to the hills and also to Nepal through Her and Her children who went down – one to Russia and another to China. The name of one who went to Russia was Lav and the one who went to China was Kush. So they are called as slavs and was mostly called as lave. And those who went to China are called as Kusha. So they lived here from their birth, till they became about say twelve years of age when Valmiki composed Ramayana and taught them how to sing that song of Ramayana. So then they went to Ayodhya and there they started singing the song. With that singing, Shri Rama was very much touched. They challenged Him in a way Read More …

Conversation with Sahaja Yogis, Mooladhara and the qualities of Indians Aurangabad (India)

Talk to yogis at India Tour. Aurangabad (India), 7 December 1988. Sahaja Yogi: “Our ascent Mother.” Shri Mataji: “What?” Sahaja Yogi: “Our ascent.” Shri Mataji: “That’s very general.” Sahaja Yogini: “Enjoy tapasyas.” Shri Mataji: “Enjoy what? Chapathi?” (All Sahaja Yogis laugh) Shri Mataji: “Enjoy What?” Sahaja Yogini: “Tapas.” Shri Mataji: Tapas! Is it any tapas in this? Doesn’t seem to. No, no, no, no, no, no. We are all having a nice time I think. Tapasya doesn’t mean this. Tapasya means you have to climb the Himalayas without any water, with dehydration getting thinner and thinner, no food, nothing, that is Tapasya. Or stand on your one foot for 12 years. Sahaja Yogini: “We are getting Joy.” Sahaja Yogi: “We enjoy collectivity.” Shri Mataji: “That’s one of them. Correct. That’s one of them.” Sahaja Yogini: “To be in thoughtless awareness all the time.” Shri Mataji: Yes. You see there are really many things about this Indian tour, specially of Maharastra. To begin with, Maharastra is the country where I would say the Ganesha principle is very strong. Because there are 8 Ganeshas which have come out of the Mother Earth. And all the three powers are represented by the Mother Earth also here Mahakali, Maha Lakshmi, Maha Saraswati. So the whole place is very vibrated. And the Mother Earth is very much vibrated. Now, if you have any problem of Mooladara, for example, on this land if you sit down on the ground and put My photograph in front of Read More …

Complete your Self-realisation Aurangabad (India)

Complete your Self-realisation, Puja in Aurangabad (India), 19 December 1987. I am sorry, I was dealing with some newspaper people, journalists, and they came very late, whatever it is. I found them to be very sensible and very understanding. All of us have come to Aurangabad now, and it seems this place is full of vibrations. Maybe here Shalivahana has ruled in this area, but also there have been many saints who were born on this side of Maharashtra, and they perpetuated Dharma. They always talked about self-realization. Dharma gives you the balance. It gives you the establishment into proper behaviour, proper understanding, proper living, but it doesn’t give you the completion of your journey. It doesn’t give you the satisfaction of reaching the destination. And your personality is still incomplete. So, one has to have the experience of the spirit. As I was discussing with them today, I told them that those who do not have … the experience of the spirit … are not only incomplete, but are limited people. So, whatever they see, or whatever they know, or whatever they criticize, is limited. As in English we say that “hate the sin and not the sinner”. Like many people who find something wrong with Christianity start blaming Christ. Christ did not created Christianity, first of all. He did not create Christianity. He did not create Christians. So, there is no relationship between the two. As you know, recently, they have found out the books written by Thomas, Read More …

Evening Program 2 and Talk on Kabir Aurangabad (India)

Talk on Kabir. Aurangabad (India), 18 December 1987 after a concert. India tour Aah, on your behalf, I would like to thank the artist, the lady Mrs Asha Devi and Mr. Nath Niralkar. See, his name is Nath and you know what Nath means. And it seems as if the Naths themselves were singing today and I felt it in himself and in his songs. And the lady who sang so well with such understanding of the music, herself is a PhD. She has got doctorate in music. Both of them, I don’t know how to say, but sort of excited our Kundalinis and made us feel the beauty of this divine music. I’ve always felt and now I feel much more, that Indian music comes from complete Divinity. Because even if you don’t understand the different ragas, how you are enjoying it. He said, in the last Bhajan of Kabira, he said, “listening and listening to this, I just got lost into it. Without thinking, without knowing about the different ragas, but just I got lost in the thoughtless awareness, in the Nirvichar Samadhi”.Then he says that, “I got my Samadhi, at the lotus feet of my guru”. And the second point he said is very good, that, “at the essence of the Omkara, essence of Aum Omkara kara, I made a little string and I crossed the Hamsa Chakra and crossed the ocean of illusion”. And the third one is even much more explicit, that, “the Sahasrara, the Brahma-Randhra, Read More …
