Adi Shakti Puja: the steadiness of the mind is very important for the marriages Residence of Madhukar Dhumal, Rahuri (India)

Adi Shakti Puja: Detachment, Rahuri (India), 11 December 1988. Puja has to start at the time when it has to start. I’ve been waiting and waiting and waiting, then I realised that today is a very good time according to the calendar; but it is not in the morning, so it had to be the third day of the moon. And as the moon is changing it’s phases in the day time, we had to wait till it started. I think, all these things have happened, of the theft and everything has happened, perhaps, to delay the Puja up to the point where it should start. So, in Sahaja Yoga we all go beyond time and we don’t have to worry about the timing. Only when it’s a formal function or something, because the people are formal, they don’t understand our styles. So we have to be present there at right time, otherwise we should just allow the time to take its own course and we should move in our own way. Now for our travel and this tour, we have to realise that we are here to achieve a certain amount of height in our detachment. We have to rise into the realm of our state, while the circumstances around us, they’re surrounding us and they should not make us unhappy, or biased, or we should not react to them. On the contrary we should try to rise above that. If there are no events of mishaps, then you Read More …

Evening Program, Talk (after Marriages) and Meditation for Right Side Residence of Madhukar Dhumal, Rahuri (India)

Then you wont feel the strain, because going back I know what it is to travel. So how was the experience here were you happy— and all the married couples are they happy, you look so nice and so beautiful, now i’ve given quite a big lecture this morning I think and I didn’t talk much about it, but we have to develop personality that’s important. That personality which is of course inside, you are growing very much, but in relationship with that personality, you have to develop a personality which is, dignified, which is impressive, which makes feel, other’s happy, because from you they will judge, if you are frivolous and if you are cheapish type, even because of may be your age whatever it is, still people will start thinking that something wrong with these people.  So, we have to develop personality, a personality which is inside us, is that of your spirit and that is so dignified, so beautiful and so natural, but naturalness never means frivolity or stupidity it doesn’t means that.Naturally a human being, even an animal is sensible thing, so human beings are naturally very sensible, very loving, happy, joyous and good creation of God, but it is not yet known to Sahaja Yogi’s that your personality impresses others much more than your talk about Sahaja Yoga.  Like Dhumal went a office of collector and the way he was talking, the way he was handling, the way he was so natural and so good Read More …

Makar Sankranti Puja: Carry The Sun With You Residence of Madhukar Dhumal, Rahuri (India)

Makar Sankranti Puja. English part and Marathi part, Rahuri (India), 14 January 1987. Today is the day where we celebrate the change of the axis of the Sun and that He moves towards the tropic of cancer. Tropic of cancer is the one which represents the motherhood, the motherhood of the earth. This tropic of Cancer has passed through quite a big area of land while the tropic of Capricorn has not. And the area through which it has passed, it has created different beautiful manifestation of the motherhood qualities on this earth. We celebrate this change because the Sun has now moved into the new dimension so that all over the world there will be the warmth of the Sun. Warmth of the Sun represents the warmth of God’s love. This is the reason why we celebrate this festival by giving you some sort of a sweet made out of sesame seeds. Sesame seeds are given because they are also heat giving and now as we are coming from the cold, we come to the hot season in a way, hotter season, so to prepare you with that warmth of the Sun these special things are made out of the seed of sesame to represent the oncoming warmth and the warm of the sun. Though in India the heat is too much, still people are waiting for this time to come in and they celebrate it with such a warm heart. At this time it is said that they Read More …

Eve of Makar Sankranti Puja, Evening Program and Talk to Sahaja Yogis: On Marriage, Rahuri, India 10:10 (Shri Mataji.’You’ve shown this to everyone?’. Yogi, ‘No, no, Mother, not until I’ve shown it to you.’)  Shri Mataji, ‘This is a beautiful photograph that has come out of this Trimurtis of Bombay, you must have seen them. These are the three aspects of God Almighty. And a beautiful temple is built there in ….. near Bombay, I am sure you must have visited that temple. And there these Trimurties are like this (Shri Mataji shows the photo). You see this one clearly as simple as that, you see? But when he took this photograph after ten minutes they took another photograph and they got the Agya Chakra blazing (Shri Mataji shows another photograph). Now, what does that mean? It’s Christ there. Christ is the Mahavishnu, this is the Vishnu aspect and this one on the right and left side is Brahma and Shiva, the centre is the Vishnu. And in the centre of Vishnu’s head, that is Virata’s head, the light came in, this is so clear that Christ tried to endorse what I’ve been telling you all because you are all from the West, you all follow Christ, that Christ wanted you to see for yourself clearly that ‘I reside in the Agya of the Virata.’. So clear cut, now I’ll show you both the pictures. All right? But if you show this to someone, they’ll say, ‘You must have done some light there, you Read More …

Talk on Left-sided Diseases Residence of Madhukar Dhumal, Rahuri (India)

Conversation with Sahaja Yogis, Residence of Madhukar Dhumal, Rahuri (India), January 8th, 1983 [Marathi to English translation] All right? So, this is all a confusion in Gita. But whom to tell, you see? You cannot tell them. Because you see they- actually, it’s an attack on religion itself. In the beginning vegetarianism is an attack on religion. When Krishna had a cousin, whose name was Neminath. And he was one of the tirthankaras (ford-maker) of the Jains. But these people used to eat meat. Meat was not regarded as violence or anything. And what happened, that, at this time, they attacked him [the attack came] through this Neminath because he saw many chickens being killed, cattle being killed, and he felt that mentally, he felt compassion, mental compassion for them. And he said, “We should have just ordinary food like carbohydrates”. And then, he told them, “Better have [only] carbohydrates, don’t eat any meat and things”. So, all this mental compassion started from his cousin, that was the first one. But as a result of that, they denounced Shri Krishna because Krishna has some ‘Sanhaar shakti’. And Krishna being a Kshatriya, he used to eat meat. So, they discarded him. So, according to them, Krishna was nothing but a ‘devyoni’. He was nothing higher. These tirthankaras were higher, you see. Actually, they are the same Shambhalastas people. Shambhala Gobi desert. [Shri Mataji is laughing]That type of people. All right. Whatever happened, they discarded Shri Krishna at that time. At Rama’s Read More …

Talk during the tour Residence of Madhukar Dhumal, Rahuri (India)

Conversation with Sahaja Yogis at Dhumal’s place, Rahuri, India, February the 5th, 1982 And I hope to come also. I hope to come because Nagpur is My mother’s place and all My brothers are there, you see. Then you’re coming back [Marathi] and it will be instead of reaching there on the fourteenth, fifteenth, you’ll reach there on the fourteenth. I don’t know what My brother has decided. You may stay for two days maybe, at Tarawa [unsure] it would be a good idea because it’s a very, very nice lonely place in a forest, maybe a good idea to relax and meditate. And then we come down to again to Warda. On the seventeenth is my father’s anniversary in the morning time, and evening time we take a train from Warda to Delhi. In Delhi, the program will be only till the twenty-fifth. But those who want to stay till the twenty-eighth can stay on because most of the people from Australia will go, and I think Delhi people will agree not to have any [prakta?] till the last day of my departure, because I don’t have to cope with the cold. Where, it’s where I was married. So, I have to go there also, maybe for one or two days. May be, may not be; I don’t know. Whatever it is, I’m going to leave Bombay on the first to reach Perth. So, you please organize, the Perth people. And where I’ll be there for a day. One Read More …
