Diwali Puja, 1st Day, Dhanteras (India)


[Translation from Hindi to Marathi]

MARATHI TRANSLATION (Hindi Talk) ही एक अद्भूत गोष्ट आहे की, आपल्या आतमध्ये असणाऱ्या शक्तीला आपण ओळखत नाही. मात्र आपण आपल्या विचारात अडकून पडतो. आपल्या आत बरीच शक्ती आहे, जी परमात्म्याने आपल्याला दिलेली आहे. आपण सर्व परमात्मा, परमात्मा म्हणतो पण सर्व हे ओळखतात, तो प्रत्येक जागी आहे, प्रत्येकात राहतो आणि सर्व ठिकाणी तो बघत असतो. आपल्या प्रत्येक गोष्टीकडे तो फारच प्रेमपूर्वक बघत असतो. आता तुम्ही सर्व लोक त्याच्या दरबारात आलेले आहात.

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. This is what many people don’t understand, that why a man of his calibre, of his standing, of his spirituality, should have to go through so many ordeals in life.

Inauguration speech for the opening of the new Music Academy (transcr. only English part). Vaitarna (India), 1 January 2003.
I’m sorry I spoke in Hindi language, because to talk about My father in any other language is very difficult, though he was a master of English language and he used to read a lot. He had a big library of his own where I also learned English, because my medium of instruction was Marathi. I’d never studied Hindi or English. […]

Christmas Puja Ganapatipule (India)

Christmas Puja, Ganapatipule (India), 25 December 2002.
Merry Christmas to you all.
According to Sahaja Yoga, Christ is settled on your Agnya Chakra. His whole life is depicting the qualities of a person who is a realised soul. What He has suggested in His own life is that you should not have any greed or lust. The way these days people are greedy all over the world is really shocking. Right from the childhood, our children also learn to ask for this or ask for that; […]

I’m telling them about love, all-pervading love of God Almighty. He’s created this whole thing. The whole atmosphere is there. The whole feeling is there of love. But it’s possible only for people who are innocent, like children. If you are very mature in your hatred, no one can save you. You’ll have ten arguments to show that your hatred is justifiable. Then you’ll go to any extent to justify it. […]

I’m sorry I had to speak in Hindi language, because most of the people who are here are understanding Hindi only. When I am abroad, all the time I am speaking English, nothing else but English language and then I want to have some change for a while.

Mahashivaratri Puja Pune (India)

Shivaratri Puja, Pune, India, 5 March 2000.
First, I’ll speak in English language, because we have so many people from foreign countries, and especially from Madras (Chennai) and also from Kerala, Hyderabad and Bangalore. All these people have come here, and I don’t know what other people are here, who have come from South and who do not yet understand Hindi language.
This Shivaratri has a special meaning, I think, because there is so much – if you read any newspaper in the morning, […]

Today we have assembled here to do the puja of Shri Maha Deva – Shri Shiv Shankara. Because of Adi Shankaracharya’s emphasis people have taken up the Puja of Shiva in a big way.

Firstly I will speak in English language as we have many Sahaja Yogis from abroad. They have asked me to talk about Indian culture today because Bombay is the place where Indian culture is disappearing, that’s what they say.

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

Expression of Subtle Elements (India)

“Expression of Five Elements on a Sahaja Yogi”. Delhi (India), 16 December 1998.
I have been telling them that the style of Indian knowledge is very different from the Western mind. In the West, you see, if you say something, then they want to have an experimental approval. They will go to the scientists or to other people who are equipped with knowledge to know what they said in these books is true or not. They will even judge Christ. […]

Shakti Puja (India)

Shakti Puja. Kalwe (India), 31 December 1997.

Today we have gathered to do Puja of the Shakti. Shakti means all the Shaktis and not any one special Shakti. All these Shaktis are situated on all our chakras and without these Shaktis no work of the Devtas can be carried out. Like you know that the Shakti of Krishna is Radha and Ram’s Shakti is Sita, Vishnu’s is Laxmi. So in the same way the abode of the Shaktis is with the devtas. […]

[first part of the talk, in Hindi]
I have to tell you thank you very much for this celebration, for all these beautiful balloons; but, looking at these balloons, we have to also see some of them who have lost their air completely. This is another problem we face in the West because to have ego itself, according to the Western culture, is a very great achievement. And when we start living with our ego I know how one looks like. […]

Mahashivaratri Puja, Surrender (India)

Mahashivaratri Puja. Delhi (India), 14 March 1994.

It’s a great pleasure that from all over the world people have gathered to worship Shiva. Actually we should say it is Sadashiva that we are going to worship today. As you know the difference between Sadashiva and Shri Shiva. Sadashiva is the God Almighty and He is a witness of the play of the Primordial Mother.

The combination between Sadashiva and the Primordial Mother Adi Shakti is just like a moon and the moonlight or the sun or the sunlight. […]

Shri Mahalaxmi Puja, The Universal Love, Kalwe, India (1992-1230)
[Shri Mataji speaks English]
आता मराठीत बोललं पाहिजे, कारण पुष्कळ लोकांना इंग्लिश भाषा समजत नाही. काही हरकत नाही, इंग्लिश भाषेत काही राम नाहीये. मराठी भाषेसारखी भाषा नाही. आणि परत आत्म्याचं ज्ञान घ्यायला मराठी भाषा आहे. आणि इतकं संतसाधूंनी इथे कार्य केलंय, नाथपंथीयांचंच आम्ही कार्य करतो आहे कुंडलिनीचं. पण सांगायचं असं कि मराठी भाषा जरी फार उच्च दशेला असली आणि महाराष्ट्रात सर्व विश्वाची कुंडलिनी असूनसुद्धा महाराष्ट्रीयन लोकांचं डोकं मात्र आजकाल उलटं बसलेलं आहे ते कशाने ते मला माहित आहे.

I’ve been telling them about Shri Ganesha, how important it is to worship Shri Ganesh. Now, you know through photographs and all that – that it’s a living deity, and it is on Mooladhara.

But when this fourth falls on a Tuesday then they think it’s a tremendous yoga, because on Tuesday He was born. […]
