Now what should we do about it, one way is to criticize them, but we don`t want to take that position (risk). Then what should be our attitude? What can we do?

So now tell Me what should we do? you also come and sit in the front (Marathi) A Yogi: (Marathi) the good dramas which are now closed due to lack of the audience. The dramas which are our cultural heritage, few of them are showing Sahaja culture that day You were also saying this, we should show such dramas, convince the people, we should buy the tickets and then force the people sit and watch them. Shri Mataji: (In Marathi) so what happened the day before yesterday we went to see a drama. (English) I went to see a very wonderful drama which is of an international level such a great drama it was, `RAMA WANI PATHWILA`. And there were hardly 20-30 people to watch that.

Puja talk, How We Earn Our Punyas Pune (India)

Puja Talk at India Tour. Pune (India), 17 December 1988. So now welcome to you all for this Puna place. In the Shastras is described as Punya Patana, meaning the city of Punyas. That’s the reason I wanted to stay in Puna, thinking that people are very auspicious and full of punyas, and I am sure I’ll find them very soon, all those who have come to this place will be there available for Sahaja Yoga. Yesterday you must have seen there were so many people who had come for Sahaja Yoga and were very much impressed by your beautiful music, and the rendering in Marathi language and what we call is they felt the kautuk. Kautuk is the, there’s no word in English, but what a father or a mother when she sees the talents of her children feels, you see, that feeling is a kautuka, and that’s what they were all feeling very much enamored that how these people have taken to Marathi language, and they were very happy about it. I could see on their faces writ large their joy and a kind of a fondness for it, such an endearing thing for them. First of all is the language, another is the music because, you know Maharastrans are very fond of Indian music so they were very much surprised how you could sing in such a beautiful way the tunes and the different talas that you use. They were very much surprised and very much enamored. Read More …

Birthday Puja Mumbai (India)

Birthday Puja, Mumbai (India), 21 March 1988. I have told them, in Marathi language because most of them are Maharashtrians here, that in every part of the country one has to work hard and one has to spread Sahaja Yoga with complete dedication and understanding. That today is the day for us to achieve that power, to absorb that power by which we are going to spread Sahaja Yoga all over the world. It’s you who can enlighten other people. It’s you who can show them the path and it’s you who can bring forth this new transformation which has been promised thousands of years back. That is going to happen and should happen in our country, much more than in any other country. But, what I find, it is working out better in other countries than in India. The reason, I try to find out why Indians can not get to Sahaja Yoga with that depth. They may be in numbers but not in that depth. What is the reason, why can’t they get into that depth and when I try to locate, I shouldn’t say this today but it is a very obvious thing that we had such great and great people like Shri Rama, Shri Krishna, great saints, people in our ancient times. Such ideals, very great kings that we have, ideals of the highest types before us. And when we started following them, we developed a very special type of character which is called as hypocrisy, Read More …

Puja Talk, God is Satchitanand (Marathi talk not on the video) Ganapatipule (India)

Puja Talk, India Tour. Ganapatipule (India), 6 January 1988. It is said that God is Satchitanand. He is truth, He is attention and He is joy. In Sahaja Yoga, first you have discovered the truth. Discover the truth on your fingertips. The truth that you can discover on your central nervous system is the truth. First you discover the truth and you can tell about it, talk about, explain about it but you cannot give it to others unless and until the other person gets Realization. So the truth has to be tested. One has to test on the fingertips the existence of truth. Otherwise all kinds of descriptions are of no weight. No one can understand what you are talking about when you tell them that you can feel the all pervading power of Gods’ love around you. And then you start experiencing your attention. You start feeling that there is somebody, some force, some power, some organization is looking after you. Gradually you find your own attention becomes active. Today I am happy to say that I can tell you all these things openly, so clearly. But can you believe that 20 years back even in India nobody could talk about it because something Agamya, not to be known, not to be understood because your attention has become enlightened. With your enlightened attention you are listening to Me that’s why you are understand what I am saying. You attention itself has become active now and it baffles you Read More …

Being Bandhamukta – A free personality and Evening Program Ganapatipule (India)

Ganapatipule Seminar, India Tour. Ganapatipule (India), 5 January 1988. From yesterday’s programme, and all these days, you must have realised that to get your Kundalini working out, to get Her rush towards the Sahasrara and to widen your Sushumna Nadi it is not necessary that you should sit for meditation for three to five hours. Of course, you must meditate for a short time because that is at a point where you are alone, one with your God. But otherwise in the collective, when you merge into it, then the Kundalini rises the same way. It’s a very discreet way of understanding what happens. In the collective when you are, you compensate each other, compliment each other, and a subtler side of the cosmos starts manifesting in you. Then if you could really merge there’s a word in ‘merge’ in Sanskrit language or in Marathi language is very good is ‘ramamaana’. I don’t think “merging with joy” but there is no ‘with’ you see, merging into joy. So if you can merge into the joy of anything that is sahaj you can become a meditative personality, you can achieve that meditative mood within yourself. With that mood, with that force, new subtler dimensions start breaking out within you. Your different kind of conditionings which are like shackles, binding you down, just open out and you become a free person – bandhamukta. With that force everything breaks: your ego breaks, your conditioning breaks and you become one with the joy of Read More …

Yuva Shakti Starts and Evening Program Ganapatipule (India)

Idea to start Yuva Shakti, Ganapatipule (India), 4 January 1988. Mr. Pradhan is a very humble person. He didn’t tell you, that we have started a, I mean, he actually brought the idea to start a, another subsidiary you can call it, or whichever way you may say, another parallel movement, called as “Yuva Shakti”. Which is meant for the young people in Sahaja Yoga. For their guidance, for their expression, and for their dedication. And, this is spreading so fast now that I am told we have got Yuva Shakti even in Pune. And may be, it might spread to other places, to other countries, so that they can correspond, have a rapport, try to understand each other. So, this is a new movement, which was really suggested by Mr. Pradhan, and I really heartily congratulate him for putting it into action. (Applause). No doubt, we must care for our young people. And look after them and give them their due respect and they must know their due duties towards Sahaja Yoga. I found them to be excellent workers, very dedicated innocent hands that I have got. I am very proud of them. And please give them a hand to all the young people. (Applause). So there will be, we have another group, now here, it is Ashis who has come from Nagpur. He is a realized soul. He is a born realized, you see. And, like that we have many. Now here we have Ashok who is going Read More …

We should have patience, sweetness and genuineness, Evening Program Ganapatipule (India)

Talk to yogis, India Tour. Ganapatipule (India), 3 January 1988. I hope you are all very comfortable now and that you are enjoying the food as well. [Applause] Also we are approaching the fag end of our tour. This tour was arranged, as you know, like a journey through your Sushumna Nadi at different, different points different, different Chakras. In the same way we have passed through various places and now we have reached Ganapatipule where we have to get our Sahasrara fully drenched with blessings of Shri Ganesh. As you know Sahaja Yoga is a very subtler happening within us. It’s a very subtler happening and this subtler happening gives you sensitivity to Divine joy. When you start getting the Divine joy you don’t care for any comforts, you don’t care for all worldly type of pleasure giving things. To you, this becomes the most important thing and the only thing. Apart from that you start seeing the truth as it is. When I say you start seeing the truth many people can misuse this word. I’ve seen many people saying that they can decide things on vibrations and they have decided certain things on vibrations. But they commit mistakes. That means they have not yet grown up to that state where they can decide on vibrations. So nobody should arbitrarily decide but consult the collective, especially your leaders to find out if whatever decision you have taken, whatever you have thought of, is it all right or not.

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)

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 …
