Adi Shakti Puja: You Have to Become Fragrant Campus, Cabella Ligure (Italy)

Adi Shakti Puja, Cabella Ligure, 24 June 2007.   It is very nice to see you all again here. I think this is the first Puja that we are having in this place and I hope you are all comfortable and convenient for you to come here.   Today is really a very great day. It’s an Adi Shakti, to celebrate Adi Shakti and what is the origin of this Adi Shakti. I’ve never talked about it. This is the first time I’ll tell you that Adi Shakti is the Primordial Mother, is the power, power of God, that wanted to create this world. And She Herself managed to create this great world.   (Can’t you all sit down? There’s no space for them or what? Please be seated. Why are they standing? There are chairs behind you. It’s alright you can sit on chairs.   This is all falling down (refers to microphone).   As far as possible be comfortable. Don’t strain yourselves unnecessarily. I hope you all find some place to be seated comfortably.)   So today I’m going to tell you about Adi Shakti which is a very, very ancient subject. Adi Shakti is the power of God Himself and She created this world to bring His kingdom on this Earth.   You can imagine it was, there was nothing but darkness and out of this darkness She had to create all these beautiful, picturous trees and all kinds of vegetation. That She did create. But what Read More …

Adi Shakti Puja: Be One With Yourself First Campus, Cabella Ligure (Italy)

Adi Shakti Puja, Cabella Ligure, 6 June 2004. Today’s meeting is very special. It’s a very, very special day also, extremely special and very blissful. The reason is it talks and sings and tells about the born order, born power, the original, the Adi, the primordial and this one is responsible for creating this great universe. Why this has started and how it works out is already you know, I need not talk about that. But today we have to talk about this Power which is hidden in your hearts by which you can do whatever you like to create a new world, a new family, a new standards, everything that is not known so far. That is quite possible .. that is quite possible and is being done. But, what is difficult is how to make people more adaptable, more in tune with each other, absolutely. It seems to be a difficult thing. They’re alright among themselves, if – their own friends, their own style, their things. But to make them absolutely one, one with each other, in one tune, in one line is very, very difficult and it should not be done! That’s not supposed to be, they’re not supposed to be like that. But it has to work out. Now the problem is, we have beautiful people, beautiful souls, but they do not become so one with each other as they should have. Now, how to solve this problem? Many people have asked me: “Mother, how to Read More …

Adi Shakti Puja: We are the singers of Shri Mataji Campus, Cabella Ligure (Italy)

After the Adi Shakti Puja, Cabella Ligure, 15 June 2003. After the short Puja it was sung with great joy the bhajan “Gondari”. In the end, Shri Mataji said: I am very happy all of you are here singing the song of Gondari.  Perhaps you do not know the meaning.  That is ‘We are the singers of Shri Mataji’.  And these are the songs sung by people who are villagers and they are singing this song that ‘We are singing the song of our Mother, with all our love for Her’.  And all that singing has come to you – is very, very happy for Me because these are only ordinary villagers and how you have accepted such a nice mood and songs from them. May God bless you. Thank you very much.  Thank you very much.

Adi Shakti Puja: Use Your Right Side For Giving Realization Campus, Cabella Ligure (Italy)

Adi Shakti Puja. Cabella Ligure (Italy), 23 June 2002. Today it’s a different day altogether for all of you because this is the puja of Adi Shakti, and Adi Shakti is a complete personality. It’s not only the left side that you know. You all know only the left side, from Shri Ganesha through the ascent of different, different chakras on the left side. I didn’t want to tell you about the right side to begin with, because those who have gone through the right side got just lost. They got Gayatri Mantra from the writings but they didn’t know what it was about. They just used to learn it by heart. They didn’t also know the real meaning of it, and that is how they moved on the right side and, I don’t know, they landed up at the Agnya; and then they were trying for the Self-realisation. They were promised that, if you do this right side properly, you will reach to the ultimate goal of Self-realisation, but none of them reached it. Most of them got into a terrible temper, terrible temper of cursing others, of destroying others. All these things they learnt through their right-side movement. There was no Kundalini awakening, and they were made to go up to the, at the most, Agnya Chakra, and then they collapsed into different places of complete ignorance. All these books were written without understanding that it’s not easy to go via right side, but the best was to Read More …

Adi Shakti Puja: Humanity has to be saved through you and nobody else Campus, Cabella Ligure (Italy)

“The Work of the Adi Shakti”, Adi Shakti Puja, Cabella Ligure (Italy), 3 June 2001. Today we are worshipping Adi Shakti. I think this is the most important puja because it is the power of Adi Shakti that has given you Self-realisation, that has given you the truth, that has given you the power of compassion and love.  That’s the power that separated from Sadashiva. And this power wanted, Herself, to create this complete universe — universes after universes. She’s creating and loving. With Her love, She did this great Creation: creation of this world also. This is a specially selected planet, which was very beautifully brought in the centre, between the Sun and the Moon, for the creation of, ultimately, the human beings.  This is Her great work [done] with such love and affection, and with very great hope that Her children will know the truth and will get the ultimate knowledge about themselves and about everything else. As you have read in The Bible about how Adi Shakti came in the form of a snake and told human beings that, “You have to know the knowledge,” [to] Adam and Eve, and to Eve especially. And they accepted to eat the fruit of knowledge because they would have remained just like animals, without knowing any subtleties of life — little higher animals maybe. Once they ate the fruit they started feeling that there is something wrong, the way they are without any clothes. So they brought some leaves of Read More …

Adi Shakti Puja: Emotional Intelligence Nirmal Nagari, Canajoharie (United States)

Adi Shakti Puja. Nirmal Nagari, Canajoharie, NY (USA), 2 July 2000. Today we have come here to do the Adi Shakti Puja.I have already told you about the Adi Shakti, how She had to work out so many things in this world —first to create and then to create human beings through evolutionary process. After that, to comfort. Then to counsel.So many people here came on this Earth just to do the counselling. They told what was wrong, what was right, what should we do, what we should not do, what is self-respect and what is the duty of a human being as a superior-most creature. So many of Them came on this Earth. One after another, in every country, They came and Their counselling formed religions. Of course, you see the mess of the religions and that’s how Their life was wasted, that They formed religions after religions, by which only human beings were divided, divided to such an extent they hate each other. Hateful, somebody’s born in an X religion, he hates the person who follows the Y religion. While Those who came as counsellors talked about complete unity, complete oneness of human race, despite that, human brain, in its freedom, did all kinds of wrong things and created a country or, you can say the whole world, full of lots of problems arising out of religion. How can it be that religion makes you hate somebody? Religion is there to understand love, imbibe love and compassion.So the Read More …

Adi Shakti Puja: Sahaja Yogis have to transform others Canajoharie (United States)

Adi Shakti Puja. Canajoharie, USA. 20 June 1999. It is such a great pleasure to Me, to see you all assembled here, and which is such a far-fetched place, away from the madding crowd. It’s such a beautiful place, and which has vibrations. Shri Mataji: They can’t hear you. Now can you hear Me? Sahaja Yogis: Yes. Shri Mataji: All right. It’s all right now. I selected this place suddenly from a very thick newspaper, American newspaper. The vibrations were just shooting out and I said, “What is this, coming from where?” And there was a little advertisement, and I said, “This is the place where we have to go.” This place has so many vibrations, even in the advertisement. So you can imagine how the guidance comes. It comes from vibrations, and that’s how I was here and this place was selected by the Divine Force. It happened only in one day! Such a miraculous thing to happen in one day! It was taking so much time for them even to get this, and suddenly I told them, “Better get it.” It all worked out, and we are now here in the most beautiful atmosphere. Of course, you know that Red Indians were driven out, and they came here to hide themselves. They were hiding themselves in this place so that they should not be crushed and destroyed forever. That era is over now: that era of domination, of entering into somebody else’s land and occupying it, and considering Read More …

Adi Shakti Puja: You Must Develop Humility Campus, Cabella Ligure (Italy)

Adi Shakti Puja. Cabella Ligure (Italy), 21 June 1998. In Russia the people, somehow, are very open-minded, not only that, the Scientists especially, are very open-minded and were suppressed very much. So they tried to find out the subtler things; not only finding out about chemicals or about some physical properties of the light, but, they wanted to go into the subtler side and they had found out already a great deal of knowledge about the auras – auras around the hands, auras around the body. They had done so much research and, it was accepted all over the world – their findings. Now this gentleman was a specialist, I think, because he’s a very well-known, a very very well-known person and he’s holding a very big position. He was saying that he has to run 150 organizations. Very humble and very nice person; and when he came out with this discovery, I was happy in a way, because scientifically, if it is proved, then nobody can challenge it. He has already written a book with all the algebraical complications of what he wanted to prove. He said there is a vacuum. Beyond the consciousness, there is vacuum; and in that vacuum only, you can know the reality and once all this becomes the reality, it is a science – and that’s how it is made into science. He showed so many of my photographs – especially the one where a lot of energy is coming out of my Sahasrara Read More …

Adi Shakti Puja: Respect Your Wife Kalwa (India)

Shakti Puja. Kalwa (India), 31 December 1997. [Translation from Hindi to English] 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. The Devtas cannot do anything without the shakti. That sole shakti is situated in the center heart as Jagdamba. This Jagdamba shakti is very powerful. You know that She lives as a mother or a wife with the Devtas. Worship of the Shakti means that there will be a Puja of all the Shaktis of the Devtas. By these shaktis being spoiled our chakras get damaged and because of that all our physical, mental and emotional problems come about. That is why it is important to always keep these shaktis pleased. It is said that the Devi should be pleased. By the awakening of the Kundalini this shakti got another Shakti. There is a speciality in these shaktis, that they become one with that Omnipresent Shakti which is the Param Chaitanya,  the shakti of the Adi Shakti. Because of that oneness the shakti comes within.  All these little shaktis get integrated with the Shakti. For example if your heart shakti is weak, and when Read More …

Adi Shakti Puja: Respect the Mother Earth, Why are we in Sahaja Yoga? Campus, Cabella Ligure (Italy)

Adi Shakti Puja. Cabella Ligure (Italy), 25 May 1997. Today we are going to do the Puja of Adi Shakti. It’s a difficult subject to talk about Adi Shakti, because it’s not easy to understand that Adi Shakti is the power of Sadashiva. Sadashiva is the God Almighty. She is His breath, as they some people call it. Some say She is the desire and some say that She’s the entire power of Sadashiva, and Sadashiva cannot do anything without Her powers. This subject has been described by many people in various books in different ways. But actually we need not go to the background of the creation of Adi Shakti, for that at least you’ll need seven lectures (Shri Mataji smiles). But we’ll come to the point when Adi Shakti started working on this Mother Earth. The first thing is we must know, that She created a Kundalini in the Mother Earth itself and She created Shri Ganesha out of the Mother Earth, it’s very interesting. So, the Mother Earth becomes a very important thing for us. If we do not know how to respect the Mother Earth, we do not know how to respect ourselves. The expression of Adi Shakti within you is the Kundalini, no doubt. That is the reflection of Adi Shakti in you. But the reflection in the Mother Earth is also expressed, as you all know, in different places, different countries, different cities, as the manifestation of chakras and Adi Shakti’s creations. It was Read More …

Adi Shakti Puja: The compassion has to become active Campus, Cabella Ligure (Italy)

Adi Shakti Puja. Cabella Ligure (Italy), 9 June 1996. Today, we are going to worship the Adi Shakti and the reflection of Adi Shakti within you, is the Kundalini. We can say this is the worship of the Adi Shakti and Adi Kundalini, if you understand that all this, whatever is created on this Universe and in many Universes, is the work of the Adi Shakti. Now many people believe that there is one God – it’s true, there’s one God – God Almighty. But He has His own powers which he can embody into someone and can get His own manifestation expressed. So, first of all He did, was to create the power of Adi Shakti. When it was created, then there was a sound, the sound that we call as AUM – logos or anything you call it – by the primordial sound and these three Powers came out of that sound, is A, U and M – AUM. The Adi Shakti is the one who embodies the desire of God Almighty. The desire of God Almighty comes out of His compassion and for His own expression, for His own manifestation, for His own reflection. I would say that He must be tired of loneliness so He must have thought of creating a partner who will manifest His desires. Thus, the power of God Almighty separated from Him and formed an embodiment of His compassion, His desire to create. They say in Sanskrit – they use a word Read More …

Adi Shakti Puja: The Shakti of Satya Yuga Dargah Hazrat Nizamuddin, New Delhi (India)

Shakti Puja: The Shakti Of Satya Yuga 02-12-1995 [Hindi] Today, we are going to do the puja to Shakti in Satya Yuga. Because Satya Yuga has started in this environment, the influence of Shakti has also become more intense. The first form of Shakti is that she is enlightened, illuminated. She is full of intense light. When the Shakti manifests herself in Satya Yuga all the manners of wrong people will be exposed, they’ll come in front. all wrongdoings of theirs will come in front and exposed. All their acts that have been hidden to the rest of the world will be exposed. All wrong actions – they may be illegal or mental, or terroristic or others all these forms of acts which are against Satya, which are against the truth- none of such activities, such an institution can be saved because the light of truth will shine on it. In this light of Satya (truth), you will see its special form. The reason I had already told you before is that Krita Yuga has started and Satya Yuga will follow soon.  I had already said that the sun of Satya Yuga is on the horizon. Soon you’ll get the proof of this, that whoever brings untruth in the path of truth, who is indulging in untruth will be exposed. Even if he is a Sahaja Yogi, if he calls himself a Sahaja Yogi and indulges in wrong activities, he cannot save himself. Till today, truth saved him, protected him and Read More …

Adi Shakti Puja: the hurdles in rising the Kundalini Campus, Cabella Ligure (Italy)

‘Money Orientation’, Adi Shakti puja, Cabella Ligure, 4 June 1995. Today we have gathered here to do the Kundalini puja or the Adi Shakti puja. There’s a difference between the two: Adi Shakti is the total power of God, of His desire, while [Adi] Kundalini is the one that is reflected, part which is reflected, in the human beings as Kundalini. So there’s a difference between the Adi Kundalini and the Adi Shakti. Adi Shakti is the Parashakti, is the power which is beyond all the powers, which controls all the powers. And one of the powers of Adi Shakti is Kundalini. For example the Kundalini which is placed within me, in the triangular bone, is not [the] totality of me. In the same way the Kundalini, which is placed within you, is not the totality. Of course, it is the power which is there to give you your Self-realisation; is the power that redeems you, that nourishes you, that enlightens your centres. But there are two other powers, as you know, very powerful, which are working through Ida and Pingala, and the third one is Mahalakshmi which is in the centre. Now Kundalini’s main job is to give you your Self-realisation, because She is your individual Mother. Everyone has the Kundalini within himself or herself reflected; whatever maybe the quality of that person. Now as you see reflections fall on everything. Say, the reflection of the Moon falls on the stone, we don’t see any reflection. It then falls Read More …

Adi Shakti Puja Jaipur (India)

Adi Shakti Puja (Hindi). Jaipur (India), 11 December 1994. [Translation from Hindi to English] Today we are going to worship Adi shakti.Everything is covered in it. Many people have not even heard the name of Adi shakti. We are the worshipers of Shakti. Here we are Shaktdharmi (religiously devoted to Shakti) and many kings have been worshiping Adi Shakti. Everyone has different deities and the names of each deity is different. The name of the deity of this place is also different, it is “Gangaur”. But Adi Shakti was once born in Rajasthan state whose name was “Sati Devi”. It is her grace that we find our culture the Dharma of wife, Dharma of husband, Dharma of ruling etc. which are nourished by her Shakti. You all know the story of Sati Devi, I don’t have to tell you in new way but she was Gangaur. She was married and while she was returning after marriage with her husband some of the bad elements surrounded them and killed her husband. She came out of the bride’s carriage, took the Rudra form and destroyed all of them who attacked her husband and then she finished herself also. We should see in this that since childhood till marriage she did not disclose that she was Maha Maya in any condition.It is necessary for Adishakti to be in Mahamaya form because the one who has whole powers and light within has to take Mahamaya form. The reason is all those great powers which Read More …

Adi Shakti Puja: Seeking, Women Campus, Cabella Ligure (Italy)

Adi Shakti Puja. Cabella Ligure (Italy), 26 June 1994. Today you all have decided to have the puja of Adi Shakti. There’s a difference between doing the puja of Kundalini Shakti or Adi Kundalini and Adi Shakti. The difference is like this: on one side the Kundalini is reflected in you by Adi Kundalini; the second side is the power of Adi Shakti which is Paramchaitanya. So in totality, if you see, it has two sides. One is Her power as Paramchaitanya and also reflection in human beings as Kundalini.The third work that Adi Shakti had to do was to create this whole universe. To begin with, as you have seen yesterday also how the cosmos was created and then how this special planet of Mother Earth was created. Now what I have told you about Adam and Eve, we have found out, said by also John in his Gnostics book. It’s very surprising. They always told you that Christ must have told you many things, but they are not in the Bible. So if you understand that this Adi Shakti came as a serpent — the Adi Kundalini part of Her — and told the Adam and Eve, especially Eve, that she should ask for the fruit of knowledge to be eaten. The reason I gave you is exactly written there, that the Mother power, the feminine power, didn’t want Her children to live like animals without understanding what is the knowledge of the higher realms, not giving them Read More …

Adi Shakti Puja: The Fruit of Knowledge Campus, Cabella Ligure (Italy)

Shri Adi Shakti Kundalini Puja. Cabella Ligure (Italy), 6 June 1993. Today we are all going to worship Me – first time. It has always been the puja of an aspect of Me or a part of Me. Now, one has to know very clearly what is Adi Shakti.As we say, it is the pure desire of God Almighty, of Sadashiva. But what is the pure desire of God Almighty? If you see your own desires, come out of what? Not out of the Divine love but out of carnal love, out of material love, out of power love. Behind all these desires there is love.If you do not love something you will not desire it. So, these mundane types of love that you have, for which we spend so much of our time uselessly, actually they do not give you satisfaction, because that is not true love that you have. Just infatuation for the time being, and then you just get fed up with it, and from there you jump to another thing, to another thing, to another thing. So, Adi Shakti is the embodiment of God’s Divine Love, is God’s pure love, and in his love what did He desire? He desired that He should create human beings, who would be very obedient, would be sublime, would be like angels. And that was His idea: to create Adam and Eve. So, angels have no freedom, angels are made like that. They are fixed, they don’t know why they Read More …

Adi Shakti Puja Kolkata (India)

1990-04-09 Adi Shakti Puja, Kolkata, India (Hindi) The people of Kolkata, I am very happy to see your progress. I know that there are many deep seekers in this city. But they do not know as yet that the time has come, where they can get what they have been searching for. You people should go to them and look for such people who are seeking the truth. That is why it is important that we should expand and spread ourselves in all directions. Along with that we should also increase our own Powers. We should change our lives also. We should also make our lives enlightened like a lamp that is always emitting light, on seeing which people should recognize – ‘this person is someone special’, ‘there is some greatness about this person’. Not just that but when you use your Powers, people will understand that these people don’t just talk but can also do whatever they say. For this, I will say that meditation and contemplation is very important.  Kolkata is a very busy city and people get engrossed in this busyness. They find very little time. This time, which we have tied on our hands like a watch is meant for our own ascent and for our progress within. If we have to grow on the inside, if we have to know ourselves from within it is important that we meditate for a sometime every day. Those people who meditate in the evening for some time and Read More …

Adi Shakti Puja: the steadiness of the mind is very important for the marriages Residence of Madhukar Dhumal, Rahuri (India)

Adi Shakti Puja: Detachment, Rahuri (India), 11 December 1988. Puja has to start at the time when it has to start. I’ve been waiting and waiting and waiting, then I realised that today is a very good time according to the calendar; but it is not in the morning, so it had to be the third day of the moon. And as the moon is changing it’s phases in the day time, we had to wait till it started. I think, all these things have happened, of the theft and everything has happened, perhaps, to delay the Puja up to the point where it should start. So, in Sahaja Yoga we all go beyond time and we don’t have to worry about the timing. Only when it’s a formal function or something, because the people are formal, they don’t understand our styles. So we have to be present there at right time, otherwise we should just allow the time to take its own course and we should move in our own way. Now for our travel and this tour, we have to realise that we are here to achieve a certain amount of height in our detachment. We have to rise into the realm of our state, while the circumstances around us, they’re surrounding us and they should not make us unhappy, or biased, or we should not react to them. On the contrary we should try to rise above that. If there are no events of mishaps, then you Read More …

Adi Shakti puja: Mother, make me such that I suck more of the Divine Cowley Manor, Cheltenham (England)

Adishakti puja, Cowley Manor Seminar, Cowley, Cheltenham (UK), 1 August 1982. Shri Mataji: Have the Americans come, those who have done the puja, have they come? Sahaja Yogi: Yes, Mother. Shri Mataji: Are they here? Sahaja Yogi: Yes. Shri Mataji: Oh, they are here. Then it’s all right. And in these new centres, have you started with puja anywhere? Sahaja Yogini: Yes, Mother. Shri Mataji: No, yours is all right. I’m asking about England. Warren: Any centres in Britain? Where there are new people. Shri Mataji: Cheltenham, for example. Where is Allan? Ask him. Warren: He’s just gone out for a moment. Any centres in Britain, any new people here, right now? Shri Mataji: If you have introduced them to puja, I don’t mind. But if they have never been introduced to puja, then you have to be careful. From their good point of view. I’m sorry I had to say this, because yesterday the load was too much, you know I couldn’t speak even, and lifting the Kundalini was like raising hundred donkeys on your head, it was too much. And all these half-baked people are such that they are like dog-in-the-manger, they won’t have it and they won’t allow others to have it. They’ll argue before the program, before the meeting starts, before the puja starts, specially. Because they don’t want you to enjoy the fruits of the puja; they’ll spoil your attention, they’ll argue, discuss. [Aside: “Please sit down”] What is there to argue in Sahaja Yoga? Read More …
