[English translation from Marathi]
Today all of you have decided to celebrate My birthday, for that I am thankful. Birthdays increase your age from one side and decrease your life from the other side. But in Sahaja Yoga it is opposite. When it is your birthday you should understand there is growth in our spiritual level (spiritual tree) and it has been growing regularly. Though our life is decreasing but the light of our spirit will keep on increasing and the rays of light will enter within us and make us divine. […]

Today, you are all celebrating my birthday. This is a matter of great
satisfaction as in this time of Kaliyuga, who celebrates the birthday

(Matru Dharma), but you also follow it.

year and there are so many tasks still to be done. […]

First Bhajan, “Bbhay kaya taya Prabhu Jyachare,” was sung. Shri Mataji remarked, “That was My father’s favorite song”.
Many people have always asked me that why God created this Universe. Of course, we are not supposed to ask questions to God. It’s easy to ask questions to Mataji when She is giving a lecture.
