Christmas Puja (Ganapatipule)

Today is a great day because we are celebrating the birth of Jesus Christ. He was such a great spiritual personality, who had to suffer on the cross.

Now as it is for the people who are coming from other countries, […]

Puja Talk, In 10 years we can change the whole world (and Talk about the science) (India)

Brahmapuri Puja. Brahmapuri (India), 30 December 1989.
I’m sorry what has happened yesterday, but I think the war has begun between the evil and good, and after all the good prevails. In these modern times, evil used to prevail over good but now in this Kruta Yuga the evil will be completely conquered by good, and not that but good will spread all over (applause JAI!). The evil has the capacity to go to extremes and then to fall out of the evolutionary process completely, […]

I have just told them (Indian Sahaja Yogis) that you should not try to copy the western style of ego-oriented society where people use harsh words, because then we think that we have modernized ourselves.
