Diwali Puja: Beginning of Sahaja yoga Nargol (India)

1995-10-29 Diwali Puja [Hindi to English translation] I had not thought that after twenty-five years, so many Sahaj yogis would collect in Nargol. When I first came here, I had no idea that Sahasrara would be opened. I was just thinking that we needed to observe the status of Man. Man had not yet reached the stage where he would understand what Self-realisation is, although many saints had provided proof of Self-realisation.

Evening Program, eve of Diwali and Talk Nargol (India)

And of course, ours. We have to have an extensive vision. And I was very happy to see that you appreciated what the French people (Sahaja Yogis), presented to you, the songs. The lead singer among them, from Zaire, in Africa, he is a very famous singer. A very famous singer in France. And now he is in Sahaja Yoga. He teaches small children also and says all our mantras. So there is a very big revolution in the world. They worship Shri Ganesha and sing Read More …
