Devi Puja, Complete Your Realization Aurangabad (India)

Puja in Aurangabad (India), 19 December 1987. [English Transcript] I’m sorry I was dealing with some newspaper people, journalists, and they came very late, whatever it is. I found them to be very sensible and very understanding. All of us have come to Aurangabad, and it seems this place is full of vibrations. Maybe here Shalivahana has ruled in this area, but also there have been many saints who were born on this side of Maharashtra, and they perpetuated dharma. They always talked about self-realization. Dharma gives you the balance. It gives you the establishment into proper behavior, proper understanding, proper living, but it doesn’t give you the completion of your journey. It doesn’t give you the satisfaction of reaching the destination. And your personality is still incomplete. So, one has to have the experience of the spirit. As I was discussing with them today, I told them that those who do not have the experience of the spirit, are not only incomplete, but are limited people. So whatever they see, or whatever they know, or whatever they criticize, is limited. As in English we say that “hate the sin and not the sinner.” Like many people who find something wrong with Christianity start blaming Christ. Christ did not create Christianity, first of all. He did not create Christianity. He did not create Christians. So, there is no relationship between the two. As you know, recently, they have found out the books written by Thomas, the disciple of Christ who Read More …

Welcome Talk at India Tour, Alibag (India) 13 December 1987. [English Transcript] Welcome to all of you. This is a great country, it is also passing through a crisis. Nowadays I feel there are so many things that are happening which you could never dream before and at this time you all have arrived bringing peace and joy to all of them. So I thank you for that. The strife and the pain which is on human beings is perhaps because they are not yet worthy of God’s blessings, still as God has created them He tries to do His utmost to see that human beings are kept comfortably all right on this Mother Earth. He creates all kinds of beautiful things that you see and the whole cosmos is in unison and working out something very great today. This new revolution that has started, very, very silently, today it is taking its shape and is providing a new future for all of us. You see those big, big trees, that are on top of your head and as long as you are sitting here no fruit will fall upon you. It’s not because I am here but because this Mother Earth knows that there are such great saints sitting here and She is not going to disturb. This place was called as Shrigaav [gaav means village – SG] I was told, means the village of the Goddess and this fruit is called as Shriphal [phal means fruit – SG] Read More …

Evening Program, Beauty must have auspiciousness Ganapatipule (India)

Evening Program, Beauty Must Have Auspiciousness [English Transcript] God almighty created this universe, in a very beautiful manner. I have told you many a time the story of creation, and how the evolution took place. The mirror, is made to see your face, and God almighty could not see himself. His qualities, His greatness, His generosity, His magnanimity. Like the sun cannot see itself. Moon cannot see itself. Like the gold cannot see itself. A pearl, how can it go inside itself and see itself? So, this creation was made like a mirror, for God to see His reflection. Ultimately He created the most beautiful mirror that is human beings. At this point it would have been alright, if, Adam and Eve had not used their freedom wrongly. There would have been not such a long time and, had to go through evolutionary process with all the [UNCLEAR incarnations] coming in, guiding people. And today, at this time, to get to your spirit, to express God in your mirror fully. This has taken a long long process. But if you see it’s so beautifully done. I think, that’s the play of Mahamaya. That, first of all, beautiful worlds were created, beautiful starts were created, you see them around. Then beautiful mountains and rivers. Then beautiful plant kingdom came in, and the beautiful variety of trees. So much of Varieties. Varieties bring forth the beauty of God’s own imagination. A leaf of any tree cannot match, with any other leaf, and Read More …

Innocence and Ganesha Ganapatipule (India)

Talk about Innocence, Ganapatipule (India), 2 January 1987. [English Transcript] Today, in this blessed place of Mahaganesha, we have all assembled to go deep into our own beings, to enjoy our own glory. One has to remember that the very first thing God created on this earth was Shri Ganesha because He could emit holiness. He exists as chaitanya and this chaitanya exists in the atom and molecules as you know very well, as vibrations – symmetric and isometric. These vibrations later on start expressing themselves in the plant kingdom as life force and you see how they are kept under a bondage. A tree that is a mango tree will go up to a certain point. A coconut tree will grow up to a certain point. It’s all under control, and then it is expressed in the animals, where it binds them. That’s why they are called as pashus, means under bondage. But in the human being it is expressed as auspiciousness and ultimately as the epitome, as holiness. Holiness is to be understood in its essence as well as in its contents.Holiness is an innate quality of a personality, where a person rejects all that is unholy, all that is inauspicious. The ego doesn’t play any part. Up to the animal stage, ego doesn’t exist. But in the human stage, you are given freedom to choose whether you want holiness or not. But in the ego of man, he might say, “What’s wrong?” and he may defy all Read More …
