Wedding Anniversary Mumbai (India)

Wedding Anniversary I just want to thank you all from My heart for coming to celebrate this anniversary with your love. I can’t do more than to thank you really how you people have appreciated My humble work. Moreover, it’s a work of just love. Love is the greatest quality of human beings. And if you have developed that then you will forget all other things. Because love has its own reward and the reward is here, I can see it. I am nothing special except that I love everyone very much. And I don’t think anybody is to be condemned because I’ve seen people coming out of all their problems, their smaller minds into a bigger area in which they are capable of giving love. I must say that whatever was my [faith? UNCLEAR] has worked very well. And it is very, very nice things to see how many of you have understood My love and have spread love among yourselves. Our human problem is one, that is, we don’t know how to love each other. If we could understand that then we’ll enjoy all this love, we’ll really enjoy this love. You don’t have to sacrifice anything. Don’t have to give away anything. It’s all there and you enjoy. It’s reciprocal. You enjoy giving love to others. Maybe some of your experiences may not be that good but most of the people who are human beings [are/have] a special, special temperament of loving each other. And this is Read More …

Kundalini ki jagruti se Mumbai (India)

2000-0312  Public Program, Kundalini ki Jagruti se, (With Kundalini Awakening), Mumbai Translation from Hindi: I bow to all the seekers of truth.  First I will speak in Hindi, and after that in Marathi;  because it is our National language, and I feel that everyone should at least have some knowledge of Hindi.  Of course there is no language like Marathi. This I agree.  But the person who knows Marathi should find it easy to know Hindi.  It is a very easy language.  I have spoken to you many times about Kundalini, and I have explained that with the awakening of the Kundalini all the unwanted particles and fragments inside us, get removed.  The Six Enemies of the soul (Shadripus) inside us, like Lust, Anger, Greed, Attachments, Jealousy and Vanity – these shadripus are always troubling us.  This happens because whatever our brain sees, it always reacts to it.  Because of this reaction we feel inside our brain, that if we also do these things, we will get some advantage.  But these are our enemies, and if we adopt and encourage them, how can they be beneficial to us. But the society we are seeing in these times, especially in this country of India, anarchy has spread; such unrighteous people have sprung up, that they have not only destroyed themselves but are trying to destroy the country.  Such kind of people are there, especially in Mumbai, and people say there are a lot of villains and evildoers.  It is difficult to Read More …

Address to IAS Officers, Stress and Tension Management Y.B.Chavan Auditorium, Mumbai (India)

Address to IAS Officers, Mumbai (India), 11 March 2000. I bow to all the seekers of truth. That’s a very interesting subject that has been given to Me to talk to you people because I have been always worried about the IAS, IPS, and other Government servants, very much worried because I have known the kind of life My husband was leading. And I used to think: if these new people, who have come to the services, to the Government service, we have to tell them the dangers that are ahead of them. Because we don’t know what is the subtle system within us, which works. And in the subtle system, when we lead this kind of a very speedy, intensive life, it has a defect. It has a defect you can see in the chart. They have shown the, they have shown the subtle system which works it out. So, we have a center here on the crossing of the optic chiasma. These, this center is very important because we react with this. We react to everything. By this reaction we create a problem within ourselves. And this reaction comes to us because we do not know how to go beyond the mind. Every time we are looking at something, we react. We look at someone, we react. But we cannot just watch. We cannot be just the witness. If we could be the witness, it will not have any effect on us. But we cannot be. That’s the Read More …

Awakening Of Kundalini Is Not A Ritual Shivaji Park, Mumbai (India)

1999-02-20 Public Program in Shivaji Park, Mumbai [translation from Hindi, Marathi] My Greetings to seekers of Truth. We don’t give any importance or attention to truth, what is the reason for that? Why we don’t like Truth and implement it. It’s not that only this, this World has become like that one eye is on wrong or false things. For that, I can say that this is the time of severe (grievous) Kaliyuga. Very bad Kaliyuga, I have seen unique people in my time, but today I see very Vikskipt (Assimilated) people, very spoiled people. Happily, they are spoiled one, no Body has forced them. Today the condition of the Country is because the human being is falling in their morality. For that Sadhu and Saints have done so much hard work in our Country, said so much and explained. Especially Indians are specialized in whatever Sadhu and Saints said they believe in it. They don’t ask any questions, in foreign it’s not like that, they start to use logic (Argument) and ask them. Indians have the specialty that whatever Sadhu and saints have said they would accept it without any dispute and follow it from small talk to big talk they will listen and accept it Because of this specialty today we have walked on the right path. But now what happened in this Bad Kaliyuga that human thinks that there is nothing like the truth. False is only everything. A Peron who is following false only grows higher, Read More …

Shri Kartikeya Puja: The spirit of Kartikeya Vashi Health Centre, Mumbai (India)

Shri Kartikeya Puja, (Marathi and English talk), Mumbai (India), 21 December 1996. [Marathi to English Translation] Today you all have expressed the desire to do a puja to Shri Mahalakshmi, but here in Maharashtra, Shri Mahalakshmi is worshipped regularly and she has appeared here in Maharashtra but I had an immense desire to tell you all about Shri Kartikeya because he took birth in this Maharashtra, he was Shri Gyaneshwara himself, I have not said anything about this until now because Maharashtrians find it difficult to understand it. Shri Kartikeya himself took birth in this Maharashtra and he wrote such great and deep scriptures like Gyaneshwari and Amrutanubhava. You can ask a question by putting your attention to see if Shri Gyaneshwara was an incarnation of Shri Kartikeya and you will find yourself in an ocean of beautiful, joyful cool breeze. I never told such a big thing like this in Maharashtra, because of the change in nature of Maharashtrian people now. Maybe because of all the horrible politicians we had here, and it might have influenced the Maharashtrians, (and Shri Kartikeya means, being in here, quite simple Maharashtrian……… a bit unclear.) We are someone great, it was very true what these people were telling me just now, that there were 40 IAS officers had come and there were three policemen on horseback, from where I came, so I asked who had come, they told me that the chief secretary himself had come. The Governor himself of that place said Read More …

Mahashivaratri Puja Mumbai (India)

Mahashivaratri Puja, Mumbai, February 19th, 1993 (Hindi); (English part at the end; 2 mn) Hindi Translation [First video: bhajan, “Shankar Bhole Bhale” (Hindi 78); talk starts at 15:45.] We have all assembled here to worship Lord Shiva. And this puja is very important one because the final goal of human being / life is to find Shiva Tattva. Shiva tattva is beyond human mind. Until you get your self-realization, until you know yourself / your spirit (atma) you cannot know Shiva tattva. There is a lot of pomp, darkness and blind devotion spread in the name of Shri Shiva. But a non-realized person cannot understand Shri Shiva because his nature is such that to understand him first a human being has to be in such a state where all great tattva’s or qualities are present by themselves. It is said about him that he is Bhole (innocent) shankar. There are a lot of intellectual / intelligent people these days who by virtue of their intellect write nonsense and say that Shri Shiva is innocent. As per these intellectual people being innocent is useless. These days the more cunning and sly a person is he becomes that famous and popular. Then how do we understand the innocence of Shri Shiva? In today’s world an innocent person is deemed stupid. But Shri Shiva’s innocence is such that he is everything. Imagine if a person is extremely rich and he is feels disgusted (virakt) and people come and steal money from him then Read More …

Birthday Puja Mumbai (India)

Birthday Puja Date 17th March 1992, Mumbai [English translation from Hindi, scanned from English Divine Cool breeze] You have celebrated my birthday with so much love. You got your self realisation, and the special thing is that you became something and gained something. I am what I am. I don’t have to become anything. It is such a great thing that you got self enlightened through your Spirit. All Sahaja Yogis have now become so good and dharmic. If you see people who belong to other religions they follow their rules and regulations with great difficulty: they fast, go to the Himalaya stand on their heads and do various things but still their Spirit is not enlightened. They will believe in some guru or God, but do they try to become like that guru? To believe means nothing when their gurus’ shaktis and qualities have not enlightened them. No religion is bad in itself. It is the way people have followed them. Some went into the.right and some into the left. dead body. Even in Nepal the left side has grown so much that they do tantrik vidya, bhoot and shamshan vidya. Thus two types of people were created in Buddha Dharma. Buddha has no connection with them and vice versa. The same thing is there in Christianity. They wanted to gain some powers within so they crucified people and did all sorts of things in the name of Christ. Even now you will see in Armenia how they killed Read More …

The symptoms of our destruction Mumbai (India)

1992-01-29 Public Program Day 2, Mumbai, India [Hindi to English translation]       We don’t even know as to what we are searching. Some people think that, if they get power, they’ll be very happy, some think that, if they get too much money, they’ll be very pleased and some people also think that, if they become very powerful, they can overpower others but in this seeking you are seeking something else. But if this seeking of yours is right or good, still, even after attaining all this, you are not happy, you have no satisfaction even when you have got all this. Then, what is the inherent seeking you have? It should not be difficult for us to understand this because we are Indians living in India. We have been hearing day and night since our childhood that beyond this world, beyond this illusion, is the joy of the Spirit. We have to receive that joy of the Spirit. And this seeking in this Kaliyuga, I’m surprised, is working out even more in foreign countries as compared to India and there’s exportation of many people from our country, who take people to wrong paths and earn money. And when we see those people, who believe in God worship Him day and night, go to temples all the time and are doing all charitable work but they are not good humans, there’s no humanity in them, seeing this we become remorseful and we start thinking what should we understand from this pensiveness?

Birthday Puja Mumbai (India)

Birthday Puja, March 21, 1991, Mumbai, translation from Hindi The whole world is gleefully celebrating our birthday. All this makes me so emotional that till now no children would have loved their mother so much, like you love me. This is the glory of Shri Ganesha that he would behold His Mother above all deities and would be engrossed in Her service. Therefore, He could accomplish everything. It is a natural instinct for every mother to love her children and to sacrifice everything for them. And she doesn’t have any expectations from them. But, every mother desires her children to be of good character, and, earn name and fame. A worldly mother has such desires. But, the ranks of a Spiritual Mother that you have bestowed upon me, I don’t have any desires. I was thinking what I should talk about because I don’t have any desires. Probably in such a state no desires exist, yet without having any desires they are being fulfilled. You are doing everything even before a desire emanates, so what should I desire for. What I had wished and hoped for – that my children should be extremely virtuous, they must have a radiant temperament, must be munificent, valorous, working for everyone’s welfare – must own such a grandeur personality and must be great gurus. I can see it is happening; little less in some, more in others. I am also witnessing how you are going around the world to give self-realization to all people. Read More …

Public Program Mumbai (India)

Public Program in Hindi, Self Realization in English , 1991-03-19 [Translation from Hindi] About which he doesn’t know. Although in our India there has been a lot of work on Yoga but because of the onset of English rule all of us forgot our Great scriptures which worked a lot in the field of yoga. In Upanishads if you see particularly Shandilya Upanishad etc., it has been written long back that within you there is a power named kundalini and this power on getting awakened you can get your self realisation. This I will say certainly that very clearly whole outline has not been given in these Upnishads. But it is a matter of controversy that our many scriptures, Yogvashishth etc., in many scriptures as well it has very clearly been mentioned. Don’t know why do we consider knowledge from foreign countries as the best and our any asset in this country give it least importance don’t know its importance. Its reason may be is that we were under slavery for such a long time and we were overwhelmed by these people because they were ruling us. Now that we are free in that freedom we should observe what are our assests what is our history and what did we discover? India is such a unique country where man has less problems of the outside world For example, if in London you have to go out of your home at least for fifteen, twenty minutes you have to dress up Read More …

Rajesh Shah: So we invited you to come this afternoon – I recognize it’s a Saturday afternoon but glad that you took the trouble to come over here today uh.. as Shri Mataji Nirmala Devi is here in Bombay and we thought it would be a good idea if there was an interaction with the Press. All of us here, who have been followers of Shri Mataji, feel very strongly that uh.. the message of Shri Mataji, who was the founder of Sahaja Yoga, is a very important message not only for India but for the whole world as such and this is shown in practice. The persons you see over here, they are Scientists, Medical doctors, Psychiatric doctors, businessmen, lawyers, – diplomats – diplomats and who have achieved very considerably in their own lives. Now, the message of sahaja yoga has been going very far and deep in their own country. We have guests over here from the Soviet Union. and uh.. in the Soviet Union in very recent months, Shri Mataji has been there three times and Her meetings have been chaired by, attended by, very senior people in their government and thousands upon thousands of people. Over here, even as follow-up meetings after Shri Mataji has left the Soviet Union, uh.. some of our group members here, who have been there, even their, to their meetings thousands of people coming.

Birthday Puja Mumbai (India)

Transcript of Birthday Puja 21-03-1989, MumbaiShri Mataji: I really do not know what to say. All these presents that you have brought for Me. Actually, you are My presents. I was very happy that those people who gave presents; all of them had such good vibrations and very good Kundalini. That is the greatest thing that I would love to see for all of you. That your chakras are alright and that your Kundalini is growing properly. Giving presents, I would say, I donít know what to say. In India, people donít give presents to saints. That is a Western idea. [UNCLEAR]. So I have to just work it out through you and all this expression of your love. The essence of all this is very simple. We must always go [UNCLEAR]. The essence of all this matter is that through matter, we can express our love. [UNCLEAR]. And thatís how one must accept it. Because otherwise, you may feel what is in your heart. You may write some poems and all. Thatís also another expression. In the words you say it. But, when it is a material thing, it becomes so precious for Me. And for you also, because you go and select with great care. And when it is covered with your love, it reminds Me how ordinary glass becomes a mirror when you apply [UNCLEAR]. In the same way, anything material in Sahaja Yoga is just a thing. But when Sahaja Yogis put their feelings and decorate Read More …

Shri Ganesha Puja: Why did we come to Sahaja Yoga? Mumbai (India)

Shri Ganesha Puja 18 sept 1988 Mumbai God’s creation started from Brahmanand, we also call that Omkar. This sound which spread in the world spread purity. God spread first purity in the world that is called chaitanya that you can now know also. You can experience it now also. The same Omkar. We worship Sri Ganesh in every worship. Today you have organised very nicely for the worship of Sri Ganesh. When we worship something we see the different form of that also. Some people ask for, some ask for money some ask for work some ad for publicity and recognition some ask for honour some ask for service some for business, some ask our house should be built. So people worship Ganesh for such things. Our Siddhi Vinayak was activated by me many years ago. People go there and ask for different things. But  SiddhiVinayak will not give these things. There are many people they give you diamond panne and take your many things. He is formless he has no shape. So first of all the form of Sri Ganesh is formless people worship him in form. But Sahaja yogi should know what is the aim of our life?. What do we want? Have we achieved that? Have we fulfilled our destiny? Why did we come to Sahajayoga.? Did we come to get something or get good business or get honour to win in the election? Sahayogi should know when we came for a new aim, what we will Read More …

Birthday Puja (no sound) Mumbai (India)

Birthday Puja, Mumbai (India), 21 March 1988. I have told them, in Marathi language because most of them are Maharashtrians here, that in every part of the country one has to work hard and one has to spread Sahaja Yoga with complete dedication and understanding. That today is the day for us to achieve that power, to absorb that power by which we are going to spread Sahaja Yoga all over the world. It’s you who can enlighten other people. It’s you who can show them the path and it’s you who can bring forth this new transformation which has been promised thousands of years back. That is going to happen and should happen in our country, much more than in any other country. But, what I find, it is working out better in other countries than in India. The reason, I try to find out why Indians can not get to Sahaja Yoga with that depth. They may be in numbers but not in that depth. What is the reason, why can’t they get into that depth and when I try to locate, I shouldn’t say this today but it is a very obvious thing that we had such great and great people like Shri Rama, Shri Krishna, great saints, people in our ancient times. Such ideals, very great kings that we have, ideals of the highest types before us. And when we started following them, we developed a very special type of character which is called as hypocrisy, Read More …

Mahashivaratri Puja Mumbai (India)

Shivaratri Puja, Bombay (India), 14 February 1988. This part was spoken in Hindi Today we are all come together to celebrate the Shiva Tattwa Puja.  Nowadays, in Sahaja Yoga, what we have achieved is by the Grace of the Shiva Tattwa.  Shiva Tattwa is the ultimate goal (establishment, completion) of pure desire. When the Kundalini gets awakened in us, pure desire takes us near and keeps us at the Shiva Tattwa. Beyond Shiva Tattwa is the safe refuge of the Atma.  The new dimensions of the Spirit are slowly seen and start working out.  And when a man is fully engrossed (absorbed?) in the Shiva Tattwa, he gets surrendered without doing anything.  Kundalini Shakti is the reflection of Adi Shakti within us and Shiva Tattwa is the light of the almighty (Paramatma).  Like as there is a small twinkling light in the gas lamp, and when the gas comes into it then you can see the light.  But before you cannot notice the gas passing through.  For this it is necessary that the Kundalini should be awakened.  When we have the sensation of (can feel the?) Kundalini then the light shines out. For this it is necessary that within you there is Kundalini awakening and then this light is there. Today I have given a new example so that we could understand.  In its own place Kundalini can do no work.  Just like a gas, it cannot do anything on its own.  In this way the twinkling also cannot do Read More …

Makar Sankranti Puja Mumbai (India)

Makar Sankranti – Shri Surya Puja. India Tour, Bombay (India), 10 January 1988. It is a very unique opportunity, I think, for Me to meet you again in Bombay when you are all leaving this country, and this kind of a special type of a puja that we are having today. This is the puja done to the sun, and is called as Makar Sankrant. “Makar” is the tropic of Capricorn, Capricorn is Makar. So now the sun is moving from the tropic of Capricorn towards the tropic of Cancer, and is always a fixed date because it’s a, it has something to do with the sun. This is the only date which is fixed in the Indian calendar, because they have to deal with the sun. But this time, I don’t know why, what has happened that they have put it on the fifteenth of this month – it’s always the fourteenth. Now today is, they are changing, I would say that the seasons are going to be changed. We’ve got six months when this moves, sun moves towards the southern hemisphere and makes it warm, and it comes to the northern hemisphere from tomorrow. So today is the last day, which we say that is the day which is the coldest day, according to Indian understanding. After this the heat will start growing and all the – we can do anything that is auspicious, any auspicious things can be done after this puja is over, during the summer-time. Read More …

Birthday Puja Mumbai (India)

Transcript and Translation Birthday Puja 1987-0321 [English Transcript] Shri Mataji (in English): The way you have greeted Me today, it is beyond words to express the joy of a Mother. Today you have celebrated it in a Western way and I am very happy about it. All over the world, your brothers and sisters are celebrating My birthday. You all have to think about them. Also, the way we are sitting on a chair, on a Puja day is a very novel thing. Something very new to us. But this I had to do many a time in other countries. So somehow, with this atmosphere, I am not missing them much. I thought they are sitting among you, expressing their love. It is very hard to talk on your birthday to people who love you so much. That is such a rapport that One feels it is better to be quiet. To feel all the delicate, beautiful, silent expressions of love. I do not know whether I should thank you for all this. Normally, that is done. But never a Mother has been so much felicitated. So I do not know what a Mother has to answer. All this love that is expressed here. [Hindi Translation] (In Hindi): You have greeted Me today, I greet you as well. All over the world, one does not know in how many places, your Mother’s birthday is being celebrated. About that, I have to say, they are also sitting among you here, giving Read More …

Conversation with Dr. Talwar Mumbai (India)

English translation of Shri Mataji’s talk in Hindi. Conversation with Dr. Talwar and other Sahaja Yoga leaders on February 26 and 27 1987 on the occasion of Shivaratri puja in Mumbai. Sahaja Yoga was known to me all along. It is a unique knowledge with which I was born. It was not so easy to reveal it and I wanted to find out how to reveal it. First of all, I thought that the seventh chakra must be opened, which I did, on 05th may 1970. It is a secret in a way. Formerly, the brahmachaitanaya was avyakta. It was not manifested. It was not expressed by itself, and so the people who managed to reach brahmachaitanya somehow, by attaining ‘Realisation’ said, “It was nirakar ka guna. You are like a drop that gets dissolved in the ocean.” No one could say, explain or tell people anything more about it. The great incarnations also who came out of this great ocean of brahma-chaitanya, tried their best to share it with the best available followers (which were very few) and introduce them to this Brahma-chaitanya. But because the brahma-chaitanya was not in a vyakta form, these incarnations got dissolved in it. Like gyaneshwara took his samadhi. People said that he cannot talk. It has to be experienced. So very few people got to swallow it. Nobody could actualise the experience by feeling on their fingertips, or feel it on their senses, or on their minds, or even understand it with their Read More …

Public Program Mumbai (India)

PUBLIC PROGRAM HINDI BOMBAY 01.12.1986 38.44 (IN Marathi) Yesterday I told you very briefly about humanity and Sahaja Yog, though it took some time because this subject is vast and whatever I could understand about it, I have tried to tell you. Today I have been told to talk to you in Hindi, though I have never learnt the Hindi language in schools and colleges and if there is any mistake in my speech, then please forgive me from your heart. But Hindi is not only the language of Maharashtra but of the whole country and everyone should know this language. Not only this, but you should become proficient, because a day will come when in this country, whoever is not able to learn Hindi language, he will lag behind. In the programs of our Sahaja yog, if you look at the history, you will see three types of foundation. Just like when a house is built, three types of foundation is put but, those who work only through their brain, they always carry on about one thing only. Like yesterday, one gentleman asked me a question that there is no description of Kundalini in our Vedas, then tomorrow someone will say ‘OK it is not described in Geet Govind also, some will say Kundalini is not described in Geeta also, then why are you talking about Kundalini now’. It should only be understood that what we call spiritual knowledge, it is like a living tree which grows inside us. Read More …

Birthday Felicitations Mumbai (India)

1986- 0324 BIRTHDAY FELICITATION AND CONCERT, BOMBAY, INDIA I feel so proud to hear the great musician playing here on the adivadya such beautiful ragas and melodies to enthral us with spiritual ascent. It proves that this is the adivadya we can say primordial instrument because it emitted the maximum number of vibrations. I wish other people also learn this great instrument. This integration between different styles of music in India must take place and I am so very happy he has so much knowledge of north Indian music as well and that all north Indian musicians who were sitting have appreciated this great music and have realized that such lot of wealth is lying in our country which is to be mutually appreciated and understood. This experiment of integration must go on. As a great artist like you must honour the (hearts/arts) of all these great listeners also and give them the full ideas of what heritage lies in this country and I personally think people are not so deep enough to understand and to enjoy this music. Through Sahaj yoga I am sure all over the world will create such human beings who will go beyond the aura of eastern, western, southern, northern styles but enters into that home which is rendered through our ragas and (taals), and different styles of music all over the world. You need not understand the raga, you need not understand the taals, the name of it but you understand everything if you Read More …

Birthday Puja Evening Program Mumbai (India)

Birthday Puja Evening Program, Mumbai (India), March 21st, 1986 [Translation from Marathi] I bow to the Sahaja Yogis of Mumbai, Maharashtra, Madras, Delhi, Calcutta, Nagpur and other countries. All of you have gathered here in such a great number to celebrate My birthday and it seems that Kaliyug has ended because I could not imagine that a Mother would be given so much importance in Kaliyuga. Also, I could not imagine that so many of My children would be enveloped in this heavenly joy. Whatever has happened has been so fast that it is unbelievable. All this is God’s grace. In your joy is My joy and in your desires lie Mine. I have no existence. Whatever is the desire of Sahaja Yogis, that is My desire; how the lives of the Sahaja Yogis are, that is My life. To come to this superhuman stage from the human stage through this ascent is extremely difficult. Those who are godly, they too find it difficult to become human. But more difficult than that is for humans to achieve the state of Brahma (Brahmatva). You have achieved this, established it, developed it and today you have decorated all this like a beautiful Nandanvana (forest of delight) for which I have to thank you. If the emancipation of the world could have been done by Me then there would have been no need for Sahaja Yoga. In that, the Vishwa Dharma that I have established in which the true Dharma has been established Read More …

Birthday Puja Mumbai (India)

Birthday Puja Talk, Bombay, India 21-03-1986 [English translation from Marathi] Today all of you have decided to celebrate My birthday, for that I am thankful. Birthdays increase your age from one side and decrease your life from the other side. But in Sahaja Yoga it is opposite. When it is your birthday you should understand there is growth in our spiritual level (spiritual tree) and it has been growing regularly. Though our life is decreasing but the light of our spirit will keep on increasing and the rays of light will enter within us and make us divine.  So till we are alive this light of spirit will keep on increasing in our soul. We should not be thinking about our life span. Once you become a yogi (realised soul) or the life after being a yogi is most important one. Each and every moment is important and you should understand that you grow on each and every moment. Like a seed which sprouts, so the seed thinks its life is over, but in real sense it has grown in to roots. The life of Yogis is important. When Yogis’ die they, in the form of seeds, sprout in to mother earth and get transformed into beautiful trees. Meaning after death people still remember us for our good deeds in the same way the time after realisation is very important. We can take a look at life of saints. People troubled Saint Dnyaneshwar, they say he always said abstract things. Read More …

Public Program: Satya Ka Swarup Mumbai (India)

1986-01-21 Public Program: Satya, Mumbai (Hindi) Title: The Nature of Truth, Mumbai Salutations to the truth seekers of Bombay city. From time immemorial, numerous texts have been written in this country about the quest for truth. The reason for this is that in this land of India, there are many hidden blessings about which we are unaware. The atmosphere here is so pleasant that when you leave home, you don’t have to struggle like in London, where you have to layer up and spend 15 minutes getting ready before stepping out. There’s no such hassle here. As soon as you step outside, there’s a beautifully serene breeze blowing. Here, a person can live their life comfortably, whether in the forests, mountains, beyond waterfalls, along riverbanks; it’s all very peaceful. Such conditions aren’t as good in any other country. Either the country is too hot or too cold. Due to the extreme nature of the weather, people there have to constantly contend with nature, and in the process of this struggle, people become aggressive. You become invasive. When I first went to London, I used to think that there is some divine wrath or curse here, that you cannot stand outside for even a minute. You cannot even breathe fresh air for a minute. As soon as you leave home, it’s closed, sit in the car and rush, and wherever you go, rush back home from there. There is no provision there to ever enjoy the delightful taste of fresh air.

Attention Should be on God Mumbai (India)

Public Program, Mumbai (India), 20 January 1986. I bow to all the seekers of truth. As it is, today, a question has been put forward before Me that why our attention gets lost; in the modern times, why our attention is not towards God. And that, in modern times, why a human being has gone down in his quality of humanity. These questions point out to one single fact that our attention has been challenged by modern times. This attention has been challenged by all that we call modern today. I do not say that we have to be primitive people. In this great country of ours, India, which was Bharatvarsh, we had such a great quality of humanity, such a great quality of administration, quality of kings, queens; all that was not a myth. It was a fact that we had Rama, Krishna – the benevolent king and a great diplomat of the divine force. But today we find all these things sound like mythical because at what level we are, we see that as the truth, as the reality – but it is not. All this is created by human beings. How this is created, and why it has happened, I would like to explain to you. When our attention was created before, in a way that we were living with very few things in this country, everyone knew that you have to have your self-realization. Nobody bothered their heads about how much wealth you are going to Read More …

Birthday Puja: Keep your heart clean Mumbai (India)

Birthday puja, Bombay, 21 March 1985. [Shri Mataji speaks in Marathi] Greetings to all Sahaja Yogis of Maharashtra. Because of your goodwill, [friendly attitude towards other people or country], we have won the campaign at Australia. Sahaja Yoga has spread all over in Australia. Lots of people had come and they were of a great quality. In few days Maharashtra has to play a bet with Australia. Such a situation has arrived. The difference between them and us is that we are straight people, Sahaja Yoga sows quickly in us as we get it easily, we pick up Sahaja Yoga quickly, we acquire it easily and it sprouts in us easily. However, we should have incomprehensive [in-depth] knowledge about Sahaja Yoga. People think that if we do meditation every day and keep silence than we have in depth knowledge about Sahaja Yoga. But we have to think that once we have in depth knowledge then what to do? Once you increase the light within yourself then what to do? Why, to enlighten others, to do well [good] to others. So, the Sahaja Yogis of Maharashtra have a challenge, the way Australians work hard, in the same way we have to work hard, then only you will win the bet. We have lot of blessings of past life, because of which we are born in such a great country, especially in Maharashtra, but we should still remember that this blessing will work out for how many days? We have to add Read More …

Makar Sankranti Puja: Let us be peaceful within Suryavanshi Hall, Mumbai (India)

Makar Sankranti Puja in Suryavanshi hall at Mumbai (India), 14 January 1985. [Starts at 9:13] Today we are celebrating here a special day called Makar Sankrant.For the information of the foreign Sahaja Yogis, I will explain to you what it means. [Shri Mataji explains that She will speak first in English then in Marathi]. It means the day, today is the day the sun crosses over from the Tropic of Capricorn to the Tropic of Cancer. It is a very big day for us because, now during the summer time we have the harvest, and we look forward to the rain and so many things that happen in every country. The sun falls at right angles in this country during the summer season and so we welcome the sun. We eat something – that you must have eaten already – what we call as til and jaggery. It is to prepare your body and your mind to give it sufficiency to receive the sun. Because if you are living in the cool season, then all your body, mind becomes lethargic and you become also sometimes very lazy about things in the sense, that the day is so small, that you cannot achieve many results. So the body has become cold as we call it. We take these things, which give us heat so body is prepared to receive the heat of the sun to welcome. To overcome the inertia setting by the cold weather and also to invigorate the body’s Read More …

Welcoming Talk at the beginning of India Tour Navinbhai Thakkar Hall, Mumbai (India)

Speech at the beginning of India Tour, Bombay (India), 13 January 1985. I am very much overjoyed to say anything really and I hope you people are also happy to be here with me. So now we are all going to get in to this new venture of entering into the countryside of Maharashtra. I have to only tell you that my concern is that this tour should really to go [UNCLEAR] with it. For example this is the Country where lots of vibrations are there, lots of freedom and lots of love. But as far as the material comforts are concerned, it’s lacking quietly. If you go to New York it is the other way around. If you have money you can get lot of comforts there but none of the other things. So here we have come not for our comforts. Even if we pay more we cannot get comforts. So here we have come to feel the comfort of our spirit. You have to feel comfortable with our spirit and once that you achieve you will enjoy every second of tour. Don’t pay attention to small small discomforts here and there. But know that you have to be deeper and deeper every mile you travel. Otherwise it is a waste of time for you and for me also. Regarding your health I will always worry about your liver problems. Those who think they have liver problem should take more to the liver diet on the way which Read More …

Public Program: Prapancha and Sahaja Yoga Doctor Antonio Da Silva High School, Mumbai (India)

Public Talk (in Marathi). Dr Antonio De Silva High School. Dadar, Bombay (India), 26th Nov 1984. I bow to all of you who are the seekers of truth. TODAY’S SUBJECT IS “PRAPANCHA” AND ‘SAHAJ YOGA’. FIRST OF ALL LET US SEE WHAT IS THE MEANING OF WORD “PRAPANCHA”. ‘PRAPANCHA’ , “PANCHA” MEANS ‘FIVE’(CINCI), THE FIVE ELEMENTS THROUGH WHICH OUR EVOLUTION TOOK PLACE. BUT “ PRA ” WORD IN FRONT OF IT CHANGES ITS MEANING. IT MEANS THE LIGHT OF FIVE ELEMENTS “ PRAPANCHA”.( PRAPANCHA ALSO MEANS MARRIED FAMILY LIFE) “ Avghachi Sansar Sukhachakrin” ( I shall make the whole world joyous) this joy we should get in Prapancha. You cannot find God except Prapancha. MANY PEOPLE IMAGINE THAT “YOGA” MEANS TO GO TO HIMALAYAS AND SIT THERE TO DIE OF FREEZING COLD. IT IS NOT YOGA. IT IS ‘HATHA’( OBSTINACY/ INCAPATINARE). IT IS NOT EVEN OBSTINACY BUT LITTLE STUPIDITY. This imagination about Yoga is absolutely wrong. Specially in Maharashtra all the saints were married. They practiced Prapancha. Only Swami Ramadasa did not do Prapancha. But in “Dasa Bodha”( Marathi scripture by Saint Ramadasa) ..Prapancha is flowing in every page. Leaving Prapancha , you cannot find God. He said this many times. To find God by leaving Prapancha has been the imagination of people of our country since ancient times. This is the reason why Buddha left Prapancha and went to Jungles and got self realization there.. But even if he would have lived with family, he would have got self Read More …
