Public Program Stadtcasino Basel, Basel (Switzerland)

Public Program, Basel (Switzerland), 9 July 1994. [..] We cannot change it. We cannot transform it. We cannot [CAPITALIZE OR CONCEPTUALIZE?] it. We have to know it on our central nervous system. This is what is described in Sanskrit language as Budh or they call it [BODH] from which the word “Buddha”, means enlightened personality. Also, its called as [Veeda?] from where the word Vedas come from. Also, the word “Gna” as “GN” used in Sanskrit language means the knowledge – means the absolute knowledge. The same word again was used in the talk of Gnostics. These were the people who knew the absolute knowledge long time back. John’s Revelation is a very beautiful book which is much more than what it is in the Bible. And he has talked about the Gnostics who lived in those days and were tortured by the people who were supposed to be in charge of religion. So this is the knowledge we are talking about [our ascent? In the Zen? Sahaj?] [UNCLEAR PHRASE] and our inner being. We have to realize that our Creator was the greatest organizer and the centers that you see here, the seven centers were created within us during our evolutionary process. These centers are formed by the left and right side of the sympathetic nervous system like this, forming the central part which is described as [UNCLEAR WORD]. We have in our triangular bone, the sacrum, the power which we call as Kundalini, which is coiled three and Read More …

Public Program Victoria Hall, Geneva (Switzerland)

Public Program. Victoria Hall, Geneva (Switzerland), 8 July 1994. At the very outset I have to tell you that truth is what it is. You cannot mold it, you cannot change it. It is always the same. It has been the same, it is the same, it will be the same. But to say that we know the truth and that we have the truth is really a self-deception. If you had known the absolute truth there would have been no problems and everybody would have said the same thing. There would be no discussions, no arguments, no fights and wars. But when we don’t know the absolute truth then we can find out our own mental conceptions as the truth. But this mind is so limited. How far can you go with it? Even science cannot answer many questions. It cannot say why are we on this Earth. It cannot explain why we evolved to human beings. So far this answer has [returned?] to religion, and to reason [NOT CLEAR] that truth is mental. It’s such a frustration when you see in the name of religion, in the name of God, what people are doing is something we never expected. The religion has to be Spirit-oriented, but it is only power-oriented or money-oriented. In the original scriptures, or we can say in the origin of this religion was the truth. And all these religions bloom on the same play of spirituality like beautiful flowers at different times, but people Read More …

One has to rise above your physical, emotional and mental side University of Geneva, Geneva (Switzerland)

Public Program. Geneva (Switzerland), 24 August 1992. Shri Mataji: It’s all right, it’s ? I don’t need, I don’t need. It’s all right. Shri Mataji: You can ask them, all of them, to sit; I think there are chairs here and there. Standing, what you can see here also? On the, on the? they can come on the stage. It’s a big stage, you know. They can come here, on the stage. Please come. I bow to all the seekers of Truth. At the very outset, at the very outset, we have to know that truth is what it is. We cannot think about it, we cannot read about it and we cannot conceptualize it. And also unfortunately at this human awareness we cannot feel it; we cannot know it. One has to rise above your physical, emotional and mental side. We have reached a stage of this human awareness through our evolution, but we do not know the absolute truth. This is the reason why there are so many theories coming up, so many dogmas, and there are fights, wars, all kinds of problems in this world. Thanks to Mr. Gorbachev that the political wars may not take place. But fundamentalism is the biggest problem today. And we do not know how they work out their fundamentalism on our minds. It is very important now to understand because this is going to be the greatest problem for us and for our children. To get over the fundamentalism, the only Read More …

10th Day of Navaratri, The deities are watching you Geneva (Switzerland)

Navaratri Puja, “The deities are watching you”. Arzier, Geneva (Switzerland), 23 September 1990. According to the calendar, this year there are ten days of Navaratri, not of nine. Nine are the days, in the night, when the Goddess had to fight the demons and to save Her children from the effects of negativity. On one side She was ocean of love and compassion, and on the other side She was protecting them like a tigress; because the times were such that nobody could meditate, nobody could take the name of God, nobody could think even of Self-realization. But those who are sitting here today, you have been there also in those days, and you were all saved for today, for this day, so that you can achieve your Self-realization. The form of the Goddess in those days was not maya swarupi. She was in Her real form and that created a great awe, even among the disciples. So the question of giving them Self-realization was not there. First of all they were to be saved. So, like nine months the mother has to keep the child in her womb, for these nine months or you can say nine yugas, nine times, you all have been saved properly, and on the tenth month you are given your birth. Also this birth is always after seven days of nine months. So we had to wait for some time till it matures. Now the tenth Navaratri today is to celebrate actually the Adi Read More …

Evening Program before Navaratri Puja Arzier (Switzerland)

1990-09-22 Navaratri Evening Program [Note: Here the dotted lines are depicting the Sanskrit phrase] So when the Gods are fighting because you are present they were so emboldened by your presence that they create this big Noise and all this brings terror and astonishment in the heart of their enemies. And you keep all of these gods in the state of excitement and you proceed to battle showing great anger on your face and lift your arms which holds the deadly weapons (all the weapons are deadly weapons in the hand of the goddess to strike the demons) Shri Mataji: This is only the one side of the goddess… you see … Sahaja yogi: And this is again one more of the goddesses on the battlefield and you can see it ….. Shri Mataji: This is the description of the Mahishasura’s killing and that’s why it is more than how she kills the demons to protect her children from the invading evil this is why more of her warrior-like capacities are described … Sahaja Yogi: This is for another 3 overs after that it’s the description of the Goddess as the mother and Ocean of Compassion. So…When you by your own powers simply say “Hun” that itself makes great volumes of smoke and bright light emanate from your mouth and these 2 demons” dhruma & vilochan ” They just got completely [unclear 01:51 /emulated]“Shonit beej” is same as Rakt beej and in the battlefield, you sucked out the blood of Read More …

Talk to Sahaja Yogis: Be careful about your own children Givrins Ashram, Givrins (Switzerland)

Talk Arzier, Talk on Children at Girvins Ashram (Switzerland), 21 September 1990. And so there are many hunters who are trying to find out this castori, this musk, and they are looking they are looking for the deer. So please keep your deer, that is the innocence, you see. The children’s innocence is now attacked, under attack, and there is such an attack coming on innocence that you have to care, be careful about your own children. Harane means those deer, because deer is a small thing, so be careful about those deer, look after them. The full term is keep them clear, keep them safe. A time may come when we will feel our own breathing as something stranger as if they are not our own, stranger, that’s why keep your hands into each other because it is very dark. Very nice message for all the Sahaja Yogis. And this is what one has to understand that you must try to understand your leader. I wanted to talk to the collectivity here today about what has happened in Switzerland, also that, you see, we had Arneau here, and Arneau became a very right-sided and this and that. So as a result of that, Swiss people have become the other way round, I think. And it’s a kind of a feeling that as Arneau was, there’s a pressure I think, on the new leader who is a very good man and he is very good. So if you pressurize, then Read More …

How to make out a real guru? Fêtes de Thônex, Thônex (Switzerland)

Public Program Day 2. Geneva (Switzerland), 19 September 1990. I bow to all the seekers of truth. For those who have come for the first time today I have to tell them that truth is what it is and it cannot be organized and it cannot be understood or felt by this human awareness. Now the first question that is asked in practically in every program I have is this: how to make out a real master or a real guru. The first thing to know about a guru is through the disciples. You should find out if the disciples are righteous people, if they are compassionate or if they can raise your Kundalini. Also, you should find out if they are wise and what are the relations of these people among themselves. They have to have the full knowledge of the Kundalini and the Self-realization. If they ask you to say some mantras then you should ask, “Why this particular mantra for me? What is wrong with me? Why this one?” But the first thing you should see that have you to pay any money for the Self-realization or for anything. You cannot sell God. And we have known that all the saints who lived on this earth or all the incarnations who lived on this earth never charged in any money for their knowledge. You cannot earn your living on this knowledge. You have to do your own work, whatever you have been doing, and you have to Read More …

The truth cannot be known at human awareness Fêtes de Thônex, Thônex (Switzerland)

Public Program Day 1, Switzerland, September 18, 1990 I bow to all the seekers of truth. At the very outset, we have to understand that truth is what it is.We cannot organise it.We cannot regulate it and we cannot conceal it.Also, we have to realise that truth cannot be known at human awareness.Truth has no pretensions and no drama.Whatever I am going to talk to you today, you have to listen to it with a scientific mind, with an open mind.If whatever I am saying is the hypotheses and if it is the truth then as honest people you have to accept it. Because it is for your benevolence.It is for the benevolence of your country.It is for the benevolence of the whole of humanity.Whatever he has told you about the eternal system which is built-in within us is our last breakthrough.This last breakthrough has to work out in a way that it is a living process.From amoeba, we have become human beings.Spontaneous.That is Sahaja.Sa means with.Ja means born.Yoga means the union with the all-pervading power of Devine love.You are the spirit.This is the truth about you.You are not this body, you are not this mind, you are not these emotions, you are not this ego or your conditionings but you are pure spirit.But there is another truth that all living work is done by a very subtle power which exists in all the elements and exists everywhere which is the all-pervading power of Devine love.We have this eternal guide Read More …

TV Interview Geneva (Switzerland)

TV Interview. Geneva (Switzerland), 10 August 1989. [The interviewer speaks in Italian to Guido who translates the question to Shri Mataji.]Guido: What is a seeker, please?Shri Mataji: Seeker is a special category of human beings which are born in these modern times – whom William Blake has clearly described. And he said that men of God, at these times they will be born, and they will know divinity, and they will have power to make others also. Very clearly, he said it, William Blake. Guido: What is Your opinion about Jung?Shri Mataji: Jung? Jung was the one, he was the same as Blake, a seeker himself, of truth. So, he didn’t accept Freud. And he thought that there was something wrong with him. He has trained also in philosophy and I think he did go to India. Not only that but he got his Realization. And after getting Self-realization, he wrote about Collective Consciousness. He wrote so many things, which we can now feel it ourselves. And he was a man who gave good pictures of what will happen to a person when he once gets Self-realization. I should say we should be very much obliged to him for giving us the truth. It was not just a mental projection, but it was a capture training of his own evolution. Guido: As you may know Jung was a Swiss man. Do you have any particular message for Swiss people?Shri Mataji: You see, Jung saw that people were seeing images in Read More …

Public Program Geneva (Switzerland)

1989 – 0810 Public Program Geneva Switzerland I bow to all the seekers of Truth. As I told you yesterday about the all-pervading power of God’s love, that is fort is described by Yung who was a Swiss as the collective unconscious. So, in Switzerland already it has been established that there is a power which is a subtle power which does all the living work. Now, how are we to feel of this power is very important. As I told you yesterday that it is a living process within us which takes you to that state where you can feel the cool breeze of the Holy Ghost. You cannot pay for it, and you cannot force it. It has to be in a way that you are seeking the Truth and the grace of the Holy Ghost wakes up this power of Kundalini which is the power of pure desire within you. So, you cannot maneuver, you cannot manage it, you cannot manipulate it, nor can you create it. It is already there built-in within you which has to work. Now all human beings have this power within themselves. And the awakening takes place without any problem. One saint Rama Dasa was asked, how much time it takes for the Kundalini to Raise? He said ‘Tatkshan’ means that moment, that moment. But he clarified it is not meant for ‘moodhas’ means stupid idiotic people. And it is not meant for the people who are not really seeking the Truth Read More …

Public Program (Self-Realization Part) Geneva (Switzerland)

1989-08-09 Public Program Self-Realisation, Geneva, Switzerland … I mean to say that you should not feel guilty at all. Because, logically, what do we do if we feel guilty ? Make ourself miserable! that’s all! And after all we are human beings – only human beings can make mistakes. We are not gods! Moreover, this Divine Power I’m talking about is the ocean of forgiveness: so, what mistakes can you commit that it cannot dissolve? Second condition is that you have to forgive everyone. Now some may say it’s difficult to forgive. Now, logically, what do we do if we forgive or don’t forgive? What do we do? Nothing! What we do really, is to torture ourselves. We play in the hands of wrong people, and this centre then (Shri Mataji puts Her hand on Her forehead) catches very badly, and it’s a narrow door, the Kundalini stops. Then how can I give you Realisation? You are not going to miss your Realisation by not forgiving people, that means we play more into their hands, that you miss such an opportunity. I hope you are convinced now for both the conditions are absolutely important because we have to enter into the ocean of joy. The religion of Sahaja yoga is to know yourself and to enjoy. No austerities, no sacrifices, no crucifixion, nothing! You yourself will know what is enjoyable and what is not enjoyable. So I hope you will comply with these two conditions first and be pleasantly placed towards Read More …

Shri Ganesha Puja: How Far To Go With Children Les Diablerets (Switzerland)

Shri Ganesha Puja, Les Diablerets (Switzerland), 8 August 1989 Today you have come here to worship me as Shri Ganesha. We have been singing the praise of Shri Ganesha before every puja. And we have such tremendous respect for Shri Ganesh, because we have found out that unless and until Shri Ganesha, who is the symbol of our innocence, is not awakened within us, we cannot enter into the Kingdom of God. And even to stay there and to enjoy the blessings of Shri Ganesha, we have to have our innocence fully blossoming. So we praise Him and He is very easily praised. And whatever we might have done wrong before coming to Sahaja Yoga, He completely forgives because He is the eternal child. You have seen children, when you slap them, sometimes get angry with them, they forget it. They only remember the love and not what they have suffered at your hands. ‘Till they grow up, they do not have memory of bad things done to them. From the very beginning, a child is born to a mother, he doesn’t know what he has gone through, but gradually the memory starts working and he starts restoring things within himself. But in the beginning, only he remembers what nice things have happened to him. So we always like to ponder about our childhood, what we enjoyed in our childhood. But as we start growing up we start remembering all the miseries and all the tribulations we had to go Read More …

Shri Fatima Puja: The principle of the Left Nabhi Saint-George (Switzerland)

Shri Fatima Puja, St Georges, Switzerland, 14 August 1988. Today we are going to have the puja of Fatimabi, who was the symbol of Gruhalakshmi, and so we are going to have the puja of the Gruhalakshmi principle within us. As the housewife has to finish every work, everything in the household, and then she goes for a bath, in the same way this morning, I had to do lots of things and then I could come for your puja, because today the housewife’s jobs were many. So, I had to finish them like a good housewife. Now, the principle of Gruhalakshmi has been evolved and developed by the Divine, is not a human being’s creation and as you know it resides in the left Nabhi. The Gruhalakshmi is the one that is represented in the life of Fatima who was the daughter of Mohammed Sahab. Now She is always born in a relationship to a Guru, which is of virginity, of purity. So, She comes as a sister or She comes as a daughter. Now the beauty of Fatima’s life is, that after the death of Mohammed Sahab, as usual, there were fanatic people who thought they can take the religion into their hands and can make it a very fanatic thing and the attention was not paid so much towards the ascent of the person. Even Mohammed Sahab has described his son in law in many ways. And He is the only one – or there is another Read More …

Evening Program Givrins Ashram, Givrins (Switzerland)

1988-0813 Musical Evening, Givrins Ashram, Switzerland I was just telling him that you have created the great [ Ghot Indian word?] of the Adi Shakti here.And all the great minstrels of God called as Gandharvas and Yakshas and all of them are here. I wish you could take a photograph. I can see all of them in the sky feeling that “look at these great musicians”. I think they are a little jealous also.

You have to become a saint Geneva (Switzerland)

Public program, Geneva (Switzerland), 12 August 1988. I bow to all the seekers of truth. As I told you yesterday that we have to know the truth on our central nervous system. That is why in every scripture, it is written that, “You are to be born again”. You are to be born again, in the sense, a happening has to take place within you. And this happening should give you the Self-knowledge. In every religion, whether it is Hindu, Muslim, Christian, Sikh, Zardust religion called as the Parsis follow, every religion has said that there has to be this happening within you. In Islam, it is said very clearly as I told you yesterday, that at the time of Qyamma, that is resurrection, your hands will speak. So much has been written about Qyamma, the promise day of resurrection. And that you have to become the ‘waliy’ [saint], you have to become a saint. But as I told you yesterday, in every religion, people have plugged the flowers which were living, and now are living with the dead flowers, fighting with each other. Even the animals don’t fight that bad as the human beings fight. And how can it be? Those who are religious fight worse than anybody else. This has really brought such bad name to the Divine Power, to the righteous behaviour, to the pure love of the Divine. A lady asked Me in Italy, “Mother, how can You be a Mother, Grand-mother, wife and looking after Read More …

The Time of Resurrection Geneva (Switzerland)

Public Program. Geneva (Switzerland), 11 August 1988. I bow to all the seekers of truth. The seekers of truth is a very special category of people. They’ve existed in all the centuries before also. And you find glimpses of that in many literary work. Today I read a book written by [Ayalahu ?] from Spain who was there in 1906. And he had described a seeker of truth how he became a saint. William Blake from England, about hundred years back he lived, has said that, “The time will come when many seekers of truth will be born. They are the men of God, they will be transformed, and they will have powers to transform others”. This transformation is what we call, is the birth which takes place second time. It is not just a certificate we should have, from some institution that we are born again. Or we have become a twice born person, as we call in India a Brahmin, who thinks that he is really baptized. But the real baptism is a happening. Recently there has been a very beautiful discovery of Saint Thomas’s writings who was a disciple of Christ and on his way to India, he wrote a beautiful description of what a saint should be, and what Christ wanted us to be, in a very large book, and put it in a jar in Egypt. This book was recovered only 48 years back and has been again deciphered by a very good gentleman who Read More …

Attitude of seeking and Workshop Geneva (Switzerland)

Public Program, Geneva (Switzerland), 5 October 1987. As I told you, these are modern times. And in modern times this en masse-realisation was to take place. That was to happen. In modern times only, when people get frustrated, when they get lost, they don’t know what to do, when they are deceived and cheated, then they start looking for something that is the support. This attitude of seeking was never before so much as it is today. This attitude of finding out the Truth never existed before. And this tremendous true desire to find out something beyond human life was never that in the masses.So they are now a special category of people, a special type of people who have developed this inner sense to find out the Truth. Of course, in contrast to that, we have many more crooks these days than we ever had, many more evil people and money-makers and also we have a trend of mind which is after self-destruction. So, it’s a serious thing that happens. When a person finds he is getting lost in the mire, whatever he gets hold of he clings onto it to save himself. It could be something more dangerous than mire.So this kind of attitude and this kind of new dimension in your awareness starts expressing itself and it shows much more sharply because of the bad background that it has. Because of the contrast we see and we feel that today’s world is such a chaotic world, full Read More …

The Truth that we understand it can not be our concept Geneva (Switzerland)

Public program, Geneva, Switzerland, 10-05-1987 [Lecture starts at 22:30 minutes] I bow to all the seekers of truth. The truth that we understand, it cannot be our concept. It is what it is. We cannot change it. And when we try to say this is truth after sometime it gets proved that it is not. The truth is eternal. It doesn’t change and the truth has to be felt on your central nervous system. For example, you all see I am sitting here on a couch with a green colour cover. You see it with your eyes, through your central nervous system you know, this is it, everybody knows it. But to know the divine truth you have to have divine eyes. You have to have the divine ears. And you have to have divine nerves. Your central nervous system has to be enlightened. Without that if you say there is no God, it means you are very unscientific. Without a microscope if you say there are no cells, you are being unscientific. If you are scientific you have to be honest and open-minded. You should not reach certain conclusions. Because you think, because you understand through your mental process.  There are so many things which human beings cannot explain. They cannot do much either. We cannot even create an atom of any element. We try to feel that we are very great, we have achieved lot of things. But all these things that we have achieved was out of Read More …

Bhajans & Talk to Sahaja Yogis after Shri Rama Puja Les Avants (Switzerland)

1987-1004: Talk after Deshera Puja, Les Avants, Switzerland 1987-1004: Talk after Deshera Puja, Les Avants, SwitzerlandFrom Sahaja Yoga Book Project Please be seated. Alright that’s what we have unclear(talked plus they can unclear(sing/see)) the slides. Alright, that’s good. I will have some water please. You have covered this? or they have covered? You? (unclear) I will tell you. Wow. Thank you. So after the puja you all look so nice and fresh. I am happy that you have been able to absorb lot of vibrations. But in Sahaja Yoga it is important to meditate. And meditate, in the morning and in the evening. Then you should understand the collective temperament. If you are not very collective, if you cannot talk to others well, if you cannot be friendly with others, if you find this kind of an inhibition in you, or a kind of a barrier – then know that you need more of collectivity. It’s not how much you adore Me and love Me, it’s what how much you are a sahaja yogi. That’s very very important for all of you. That you have to be great Sahaja Yogis. That’s my aspiration is. That’s my only asking is. Actually as you know, I am a lonely person, I am extremely lonely in life and I want companions. The companions can come out of you but you have to have a level to be my companions. I am sure you will definitely achieve that level. Through humility, love, compassion, openness Read More …

Shri Rama Puja: Dassera Day Les Avants (Switzerland)

Shri Rama Puja. Les Avants (Switzerland), 4 October 1987. Today we are celebrating in Switzerland the coronation of Shri Rama on Dassera Day. Many things happened on Dassera Day. The most important was that Shri Rama was coronated as a king on this day. He also killed Ravana on this day. Many may say that how can it be He killed Ravana and He was coronated on the same date? In those days in India, we had supersonic aeroplanes and, is a fact, and the aeroplane’s name was Pushpak, meaning the flower. It was called as Pushpak and it has a tremendous speed. So after killing Ravana He came to Ayodhya with His wife and that was the day He was crowned. On the ninth day, He worshiped the Goddess to get strength, Shakti, for his weapons, and the tenth day He killed Ravana. So, you can imagine how much advanced people were there at the time of Shri Rama and His kingdom. The reason was the king was an incarnation; also He was a benevolent king as described by Socrates. Shri Rama’s story is very interesting throughout and we have now a beautiful series about Him done by our television in India, which is sold for a very good price, maybe we might be able to present you all with one when you come there. But the story of Rama they say was written before He was born. Even before there was any inkling of it the seer, Valmiki, Read More …

Shri Krishna Puja: The Six Enemies And False Enemies Hostellerie am Schwarzsee, Plaffeien (Switzerland)

Shri Krishna, Schwarzsee (Switzerland), 23 August 1986. Shri Krishna resides in our Vishuddhi Chakra. In the centre, He resides as Shri Krishna. On the left hand side, His power, Vishnumaya, His sister, resides. There He resides as Gopala, as the one who lived in Gokul, played as a child. On the right hand side He resides as the King who ruled in Dwarika, the King Shri Krishna. These are the three sides of our Vishuddhi chakra. The people who use their right side to dominate others, use their voice to put down people, to show their authority, shout at people, are the people who get affected by the right side. When the right side is caught up, on the physical side, you get a very big problem because the right heart cannot work out its flow. So, you get what you call asthma and all these diseases, but specially when the right heart is affected by the father’s problem. On the left side is the Vishnumaya, is the sisterly relationship. When the sister, who is your pure relation, is not treated as a sister, when the attitude of a person towards women is of indulgence and of lust, then he develops the Left Vishuddhi. When he develops the Left Vishuddhi very strongly, and if he has a bad Agnya, or if he has eyes which are roving eyes, then this Left Vishuddhi causes lot of trouble. Left Vishuddhi can be also caused by, as you know, by feeling guilty about Read More …

Talk about Shri Krishna (before the dinner) Hostellerie am Schwarzsee, Plaffeien (Switzerland)

Evening Talk, Shri Krishna Puja Seminar. Schwarzsee (Switzerland), 23 August 1986. So we have decided… [A little further, should be brought little further (the microphone)], we have decided to have the puja after our dinner because Shri Krishna was born in the night, about twelve o’clock while I was born twelve o’clock in the daytime, same with Shri Rama. And also Christ was born twelve o’clock in the night. I’ve told you that today I’m going to tell you about Gita. That is the second part of Krishna’s life. It’s so different and varied that some people, intellectuals as usual, say that the Krishna who played as a child in Gokul was different from the Krishna who was the king of Dwarika. So when He became the king of Dwarika, there was a war between Pandava and Kauravas, one representing the good people, another representing the bad people. So they came to ask Him if He would join on their side. So He said, “I’ve got My army and I’m Myself, so whichever you choose you can have.” So Kauravas said, “We’ll have your army,” but Pandavas said, “We’ll have you.” And that is how the war started and, in the war, His greatest disciple was one of the Pandavas called Arjuna. And Arjuna asked Him to fight for him. He said, “I will not take any weapon in My hand but I will be your charioteer and drive your chariot.” And when He was driving the chariot, it so Read More …

Morning of Shri Krishna Puja seminar Hostellerie am Schwarzsee, Plaffeien (Switzerland)

Morning talk to Yogis, Krishna Puja seminar. Schwarzsee (Switzerland) 23 August 1986 It’s so gratifying and joyous to see all of you here, today, assembled to do Shri Krishna Puja. Can you hear Me there? No? Can’t hear. Gregoire: Phil, can you connect the back… Shri Mataji: To see so many Sahaja Yogis assembled here, I’m sure the devil must have run away long time back. And the caravan must have left but I hope we are aware of it and we forget about our fears of our catches, of our past, of all the nonsense we have done so far. Suddenly in My presence, I think, people get into a sense of guilt. I am here to soothe you, to cleanse you, to make you beautiful, and not to feel guilty. Actually, when we start looking at ourselves, the first thing we notice is that there is a block on the Agnya, but this block in the Agnya is the worst thing that can happen to us because it is the door of the Kundalini. She reaches up to Vishuddhi, all right, and when She has to move forward, this Agnya stops it. That’s why we have left Vishuddhi, we have all the Vishuddhi problems. The flow cannot take place. Also, this is one of the reasons we feel guilty – because of left Vishuddhi. It’s a symptom of a disease. Today we are going to worship Shri Krishna. So we have to understand first of all, that we Read More …

Havan, Weggis (Switzerland), October 20th, 1985 What a beautiful place! We don’t have something like this in London or in England. Beautiful! I wonder if you have any cable car.

6th Day of Navaratri, Complete dedication Weggis (Switzerland)

Navaratri puja. Weggis (Switzerland), 19 October 1985. Today is a great day of Navaratri, we are sitting on the cusp of the sixth and the seventh. Sixth and the seventh is the day when Mahasaraswati finished Her work and the incarnation of the Shakti itself started. So, at twelve o’clock today the Devi takes the Shakti upon Herself. Of course, as you know, that Mahakali and Mahasaraswati, both are the powers of Shri Sadashiva. Adi Shakti first formed Herself into Mahakali, which is the Power of Desire. But all these powers are nothing but the power of God’s love. So, in the series of this great love of God, Adi Shakti had to first become the Power of Desire. In the same way, Sahaja Yogis who are bestowed with this power of love have to have full desire in their heart. Desire to love. That desire is very different from the other kinds of human love we have known. In other kinds of human love, when we have relations with others, we have expectations, and that’s why it is very disappointing. Our expectations always run higher than our understanding and realities. And so we suffer from disappointments and frustrations. And the love that has to be nourishing and fulfilling becomes a thankless job. So, when it reflects in the human beings, it is the desire to be loved by everyone, not to love others. Everyone should love you, but how far you love another is the point. Naturally everyone for Read More …

Farewell Puja Founex Ashram, Founex (Switzerland)

Farewell Puja,  Founex,  Switzerland  14 June 1985 What’s it? Now, who is going to play that? That’s great. Sit down. Sit down. Ah, the roses have grown in sizes. Do you see that? Yogi: Huge, Mataji. They are huge. But they are growing in size. Your vibrations I think. All right. So now. I’m sorry we had to do this hurried up thing today. And with the situations one has to adjust, that is what is the situation is today. I may not be able to come back for Krishna Puja, but – Navaratri, sorry, Navaratri, may not be, may be, I can’t say. But whatever it is. We should have a little Puja. That’s what was the desire. So, we’ll do it now; only you have not much time. But you can say the mantras and somebody can just wash My Feet and then My hands. So it takes about five minutes to wash the feet. Yogi: Should we say Your hundred and eight names? There’s a translation in English. That will be. All right? If you think so – but I think better is to say mantras, it’s better, the mantras of the chakras, you see. It is better to say because that also is very important, to say the mantras of the chakras. Yogi: From the beginning? … from the end, yes. So you say one and then repeat, from one to another. Now, start it. We can start with Shri Ganesha. Yogi: Ganesha, Shri Ganesha. Three Read More …

All great Incarnations are just one Geneva (Switzerland)

Public Program. Geneva (Switzerland), 13 June 1985. I bow to all the seekers of truth. We are here to know about the truth. First through our mental understanding and then through our experience, to prove everything that you have heard so far. But the minds are very conditioned. Like in India, when you talk about Christ to Hindus, say that Christ is based and placed in the Agnya chakra, they think that I’m trying to spread Christianity, because I was born in a Christian family. But when people talk about the deities on the chakras, which is a fact, people in the West start thinking they are talking about Hindu philosophy. But one must know that are all related to each other. Christ Himself has said in the Bible that: “Those who are not against us are with us”. Who are those? Actually the most unfortunate thing is that Christ was not allowed to speak more than three and a half years. I’ve been coming to Switzerland for four years and I have been telling [UNCLEAR] before talking about the deities. Because I know the conditioning of the Western mind. They will never try to understand that there is something beyond what they know from the missionaries. It is a very difficult situation but I think the Sahaja Yogis feel the emergency. They feel that it is now necessary to start talking about the truth plainly to everyone. If they do not want to come in, all right. But at Read More …

Talk to Sahaja Yogis: it’s a very great fight I have started with the satanic forces and negativity Neuchatel (Switzerland)

Neuchatel (Switzerland), 12 June 1985. Sahaja Yogi: Flowers, I am sure the weddings of last year worked out such tremendous… Shri Mataji: Effects. Sahaja Yogi: Size of flowers. Shri Mataji: I have been very anxious to meet you all together, all the Sahaja Yogis of Switzerland. Now the reason for that is, this time when I came I found so many beautiful people at the airport and some of them I’ve not met, I felt, before. Now those who I’ve not met I would like them to stand up and tell Me their names. Sahaja Yogi: Hello. [French] Shri Mataji: What’s the name? Sahaja Yogini: Renata. Sahaja Yogi: She was going to the United States in Washington. Shri Mataji: Really? Sahaja Yogi: Yes. Shri Mataji: We have already got there someone, somebody. Linda is her name and her husband’s name is [Curly]. He is going there and he is an engineer. Sahaja Yogi: She has a very high position in the work so… Shri Mataji: What, what is she doing there? Sahaja Yogi: She is speaking in English. Shri Mataji: Oh, I see. Sahaja Yogi: I am a General Manager for an American company that is involved in the beauty business. Shri Mataji: Oh, I see. I see. Sahaja Yogi: And I have just received a promotion as a senior vice-president of a very important division in America with the same company. Shri Mataji: Very good. Sahaja Yogi: And I will be based in Washington. Shri Mataji: It’s very good. Read More …

The Truth Has Two Sides Geneva (Switzerland)

Geneva Public programme 11th June 1985 ‘The Truth has Two Sides’  I bow to all the seekers of truth. But the truth has two sides: the illusion that we see can look like truth, and the essence of the illusion also may appear to be truth. But the other side is absolute and has to be felt, has to be experienced on your central nervous system. It’s not a mental projection that we can think of, nor emotional imagination, but truth is what it is, it cannot be changed. It cannot compromise. We have to humble down ourselves to know the truth. Now we have discovered so many things in the science, by humility that we have not known so far. But whatever is known outside, like the tree, must have roots, and these roots are not known if you are just looking at the tree. And when somebody talks about the roots, we get shaken up because we have had no knowledge of it before. Thus we are conditioned to only see the tree, and we cannot make our mind understand that there must be some roots to it. So we can say that people have advanced in science quite a lot, and have progressed and have become developed countries. But they do not know, if they do not seek their roots they will be completely destroyed. Now when I’m before you, one should not in any way feel that I’m here to offend you, but I’ve come here Read More …

Become an instrument of the divine power  Founex (Switzerland)

Public Program. Founex (Switzerland), 11 June 1985. I bow to all the seekers of truth. Today we have a new generation of people what we call the people who are seekers. These are some special category who are seeking something beyond. They are seeking the truth as they say. But what is the truth? What are you seeking? As I told yesterday in Geneva that whatever you are seeking has to be something sensible. It cannot be something nonsensical, that something new comes to you and you just accept it because it is new, but must evolve through that traditional understanding of seeking. Then we are on the right path. As I told you yesterday only one hundred years back new methods of seeking started, which has no relationship whatsoever to the old methods, to the tried out methods, to be traditionally practiced, no relationship at all. And so I have read books where it says that Kundalini awakening gives you problems, it gives you heat, you start jumping like a frog. Now, we are not going to now become frogs, are we? What urge we have of seeking is coming through our evolutionary process. It is a living process, which is within us, which has made us amoeba. Now if you have to become something higher, then we are not going to be like frogs by any chance. So we should see how in the scriptures, ancient scriptures of every religion it is described, and you can bring down Read More …

Shri Ganesha Puja: Four Oaths Hotel Riffelberg, Zermatt (Switzerland)

Shri Ganesha Puja, Zermatt (Switzerland), 2 September 1984. My joy knows no bounds when we have come to worship this holy mountain which we have named as Ganaraj. Sometimes the words are not sufficient to hold the outpour of your joy. I come to you as a symbol of your Mother, but the first Son who was created was Shri Ganesh. And then, when the Mother Earth was created as a symbol of motherhood, She created many Shri Ganeshas in this universe. In the cosmos, the star which is called as Mars is the Ganesh, Shri Ganesh. All these symbols were created for you, the Sahaja Yogis, to recognize them. To recognize all these symbols is easier if you are a realized soul. But we have had so many great realized souls in the past, of very high quality, and they recognized, they found out the symbols of Shri Ganesha, long time back. India is the microscopic form of the whole earth, Mother Earth. So, in the triangle of Maharashtra, we have got eight Ganeshas which are manifesting vibrations and were recognized by great saints of Maharashtra. But as you have seen, as a grace of these great saints, especially in Maharashtra, has created human beings who have shraddha as the highest expression of their emotion and mind. Because of that lofty vision in the mind, whenever they see something of this sublime nature, their thoughts go to God. [It is] thanks to the saints of that state that people have that Read More …

Evening Program before Shri Ganesha Puja and Talk: Count your Blessings every moment Hotel Riffelberg, Zermatt (Switzerland)

“Count your Blessings every moment” (talk before musical evening). Riffelberg (Switzerland), 1 September 1984. Only about an hour back I was telling that perhaps the Sahaja Yogis don’t realise, even materially’, how Divine is looking after them. And what are they’ doing about it ? They have so many, still, many identifications, and they are not fully identified with the Divine, that Divine is so much identified with you. This is definitely such a great miracle, that should happen. Can you see this clearly now, so many miracles happen to you, but what about our sincerity ? The sincerity of the Divine is there, but are we sincere, to that Divine? There are so many miracles like this, not one but thousand-and one have happened, and in individual life, in collective life ; one has to write it down, it is ,remarkable.’ But either, sometimes we are identified with ego, sometimes we are identified with the conditionings of the things that we do not identify, and sometimes we are attached to a very petty-nonsensical thing,-thats not proper. And there should not be little bit hint of ego to think that “God is so kind to us so we are something great”,-it’s very wrong. So many people do like that, I have seen. Not only in Europe, England, also in India they do like this, that “this is Mother’s job, this Mother is doing,” or if you tell them something they will say “it is Mother ‘You’ said, so I did Read More …

In Sahaja Yoga all religions are true Lausanne (Switzerland)

Public Program. Lausanne (Switzerland), 30 August 1984. I bow to all the seekers of truth. It’s such a great pleasure to see so many people in Lausanne who are seekers and have come to know, here, about the truth. Can you hear him? Is it all right or muffled? Muffled. Little bit, I think, should be further. Just put it right. These are special times, we must understand, when there are thousands of people who are feeling the urge to seek beyond. In the tradition of spirituality, Sahaja Yoga is not a new thing. It’s a very ancient expression of the spontaneous awakening of your Holy Spirit within you. It resides within you. It is your own. It is your own energy that resides in the triangular bone called as “sacrum”, which means the Greeks knew there is something sacred about this bone. She is your Mother, your individual Mother, who has to give you your second birth as asked by Christ. Now whatever Arneau has told you and whatever I am going to tell you is the knowledge of the roots which was kept secret for thousands of years. And first time in the sixth century people started talking openly about it and telling what are we inside ourselves. But all the great incarnations who came in this tradition of spirituality, one by one manifested every time a new awareness in the human dimension. In the ancient time when they followed Patanjali Yoga, that time they were hardly one Read More …

At the human level we try to seek Truth through our mental projection Geneva (Switzerland)

Public Programme Day 1. Geneva (Switzerland), 28 August 1984. At The Human Level We Try To Seek Truth Through Our Mental Projection I bow to all the seekers of Truth. I’m sorry, I could not come yesterday and I hope today we’ll be able to do something for ourselves. When we talk of Truth, we have to know that at the human level we try to seek Truth through our mental projection or through our emotional understanding. The other day I met the president of the Jungian Society in America and he told Me that he was sitting on a cut trunk of a tree and he just thought that, “I should try to know the roots and thus I will know the sap.” I said, “How will you know the roots when you have just mental capacity?” He said, “With mental capacity you can go down into the subtler side and go down and you can understand the roots.” I said, “By your mental projection it’s all imaginary knowledge you have.” So to get to the roots you have to become a subtler personality. So one must know that Truth is much subtler than our gross understanding and to know the Truth we have to be subtler personality. At this gross level we understand what our ego tells us, or our mental projection tells us, or our conditioning tells us. And so when we read too much about the subtler life, we think we know what subtle life is. Read More …

Private conversation in Founex ashram, 1984 Shri Mataji: The situation is the same as I have in my house [with so many flowers].All right, now you sit down. So, today I was explaining, in my bedroom, to some of the Sahaja Yogis how this universe is created. And they said, “You should tell about his to us, in the evening”. But, after diner, most are in digestion, is it worth it? Carol wanted to show off the watch that my children have given me. These also came in the same price. The watch was so big, which they gave me, for that you really need a wrestler to wear. And I saw the watch. I didn’t know what to say, you see. There’s a saying that, “You should not open the mouth of the horse which is given to you, from the teeth.”Because they asked me, “We are going for Guru puja and we collected some money for you in Switzerland.
