Makar Sankranti Puja, Pune, India

I’m sorry I’ve not been able to speak to you in English language and I’ve spoken sometimes. This special day today is a day of Sankranti. Sankri – you know ‘San’ means good, holy and ‘krant’ means if the -when I speak Marathi I forget English – revolution. Holy revolution. Holy.
That’s what I’m telling them what is the Holy Revolution is that your own Dharma is established now through Sahaja Yoga. You know what is your Dharma. Because if you don’t do your own Dharma you’ll be lost. Your vibrations will be lost. You’ll immediately know that in your seeking you have lost something. You’ll be affected so you have to correct. That’s not so difficult.
But to make it a Sankrant – Holy Revolution – you have to take to new – new religion, new steps. First of all, your own step should be enlightened, and then you must establish new steps to go ahead. And these are the new steps which are different for the Westerners and different for the Easterners. Just now I told them about the Eastern style and then I’ll tell you later on about the Western.
We have to have new ideals, new styles because we are the courageous people, we are the valiant people. We’ll have to fight the war of love, through love. And it’s a very delicate thing. When the moon moves – the sun moves – from the left to the right that means your desire becomes your action.
Today is the day they give you a sweet thing to say that you must speak sweetly which is very important for Western people that when you are doing and organizing you become heated up, there’s tension and you develop a temperament which is dry, emotion-less. You know the heart goes into a tension. At that time they say that you take the sweet. This sweet is a heated thing because now the sun is moving towards the other side. That time also they, to give it a balance, they say : “Speak very sweetly. Use sweet words, use sweetness. Bring sweetness in your language.” which is very important, you understand that. And this is one of the religions we have to accept that we will not use harsh words to each other and then later on to others. First of all to each other. There are many people who’ll be kind to others because others will eat them off but unkind to their own Sahaja Yogis. Because it is a universal happening. It’s the whole thing is working out universally. Even if you organize, you organize for the whole. Those who are organizing have no business to be harsh and those who are not organizing have no business to be slow.

We must move with the same speed, with the same understanding.
There’s a story in Marathi language which is a very good story that a – [Shri Mataji speaks in Marathi] the bird catcher has put lots of temptations of good grains for some birds – pigeons and the pigeons didn’t see the nets – uh the trap and they all came down to eat that. And there was a net there. In the net their feet were entangled . So the solution was found out that : ‘If all of us with the same speed take off, we’ll take away the whole of the net and then he cannot catch us.’ So, one person said : ‘Alright, as soon as I say ‘yes’,[all of us ?] all start with the same speed. If somebody increases his speed he is brought down.
In the same way Sahaja Yoga has to be worked out and that’s why to keep up the speed keep yourself peaceful, loving, affectionate. Peace is the way we are going to achieve it. This is an explosive peace. By giving contrasts you bring the balance in : explosive.
You have read also about the Goddess – the different aspects of Goddess. Always : ‘Ati saumya, Ati Raudra’ [ In Devi Suktam from Devi Mahatmya, meaning, gentle like the Moon and also terrible like Rudra] To give the two contrasts by which [it] bring the balance in the middle.
That’s how you must understand that Sahaja Yoga is a very unique revolution. I told them also politically and also socially – in every way how we are going to improve every country. Thus the whole world – the whole universe.
Later on I’ll translate the whole thing for you.
So today’s a special day, a very great day. Let us ask that – when you are doing this Puja, ask for new religions within you to be enshrined, to be sustained within ourselves and try to imbibe them. They will be permeating but you have to accept them and you should know it’s a big fight and it’s a very different type of a fight of peace and love. That’s why they say : ‘Speak sweetly. Be sweet. Not to be sarcastic by any chance nor to be harsh but be sweet. Sweetness which is genuine, not outward, un-showing, un-formal but genuine sweetness.

May God bless you all.
