Shri Krishna Puja (Hindi). Pune (India), 9 August 2003.
[Translation from Hindi to English]
Now we have to realize that Sahaja Yoga has spread a lot and in all corners of the world people respect Sahaja Yoga, but until and unless Sahaja Yoga is completely manifested within us, the people who respect Sahaja Yoga will not continue to do so. That is why it is essential that we look inside of us. The nature of Shri Krishna is that we look inside of us and see what are the things that put us in trouble. […]
Shri Kubera Puja. Canajoharie (USA), 18 August 2002.
Today we are going to worship Shri Krishna as a very great personality and you know why He came on this Earth to establish, this is the new form of, not Virat, not Virata, but a form by which this country became so prosperous. And by His advent only He created a beautiful mentality among the people, how to develop this culture with dharma and you had very great leaders, […]
Shri Krishna puja. Nirmal Nagari, Canajoharie, New York (USA), 29 July 2001.
Today we have gathered here to worship
Shri Krishna, the One who was Virat, who fought all kinds of evil without entering into the arena. Shri Krishna’s life, in itself, is a very beautiful, creative and loving thing, but to understand Him, it is not easy.
For example, in Kurukshetra, where the war was going on and Arjuna became depressed and he said that: “Why should we fight, […]
Shri Krishna puja. Cabella Ligure (Italy), 20 August 2000.
Today we are here to worship Shri Krishna within us.
As you know you all have been seeking before coming to Sahaj Yoga. You went to different places, read lots of books and also some of you were lost. And, in that seeking, perhaps you did not know what you were seeking. What you were seeking was to know yourself. In all religions it is said ‘know thyself’: is a common thing all of them have said. […]
Shri Krishna Puja. Cabella Ligure (Italy), 16 August 1998.
Today we are going to have Shri Krishna Puja. It is a very important thing about the power of Shri Krishna that gives you a witness state. This is very important also because in these days of Kali Yuga and complete confusion of value system, all kinds of turmoil makes a very complex conditions to exist. The state of witnessing is only possible through meditation. You reach the state of thoughtless awareness. […]
Shri Krishna Puja. Cabella (Italy), 23 August 1997.
Today, we are here to celebrate Krishna puja. I went to America and they wanted me to have a Mahakali puja. But I said, no, let me talk about Krishna only, because we have to first realize what is the strength of this Puja. How are we going to establish Shri Krishna within ourselves ?
He, Himself has said, that whenever there is a downfall of dharma – […]
Shri Krishna Puja. New York (USA), 8 June 1997
Today we have decided to have Shri Krishna Puja in the land of Shri Krishna.
Though this is the land of Shri Krishna, people ask Me why the people are not spiritual. How is it they get entangled into different types of seekings which are not leading to truth? Why is it the people in America are not so alert as to recognize what is the truth and what they have to find? […]
Shri Krishna Puja. New York (USA), 29 September 1996.
[Video begins with musical evening program footage where a young Indian girl dances for Shri Mataji.]
[Puja talk begins]Today we have decided to have Krishna Puja because America is the Krishna bhoomi.
It’s very surprising that such a great incarnation of Shri Krishna came even much later than Rama and has sent His special people to live in America.Of course, there are many who are seeking in this country, […]
1996-09-01 Shri Krishna Puja, Sahaja Culture, Cabella Ligure, Italy
Today, we are going to worship Shri Krishna. See how cold it was about 3 o’clock. Now the reason is this, that Shri Krishna did little mischief with Indra. Indra, who is a God, or you can call semi-God, for looking after the rain. So, Indra got very angry.
You see, all such semi-Gods are very sensitive people, at the smallest thing they get angry and irritated and they start using their powers to express their anger. […]
Shri Krishna Puja. Cabella Ligure (Italy), 20 August 1995.
Today we are going to worship Radha and Krishna. It’s a very festive feeling because Shri Krishna came on this earth at a time when people had become extremely serious about religion, about spirituality, and that made the whole aspect of religion as a joyless achievement.
And that’s how people became very serious; also the attention of people was diverted into a kind of a drama, which created aloofness from the society. […]
Shri Yogeshwara Puja. New Jersey (USA), 2 October 1994.
Today we are going to worship Shri Krishna as Yogeshwara.
As it is, you know that Vishnu’s first incarnation as a human being was Vamana avatar. And then went till He came as Shri Ram. So, the past of Shri Krishna was Shri Ram. And when Shri Rama came on this earth, He went into lots of austerities, to go to jungle, His wife was lost, whom He had to find out. […]
Shri Krishna Puja. Cabella Ligure (Italy), 28 August 1994.
Today we are here to worship Shri Krishna. As you know Shri Krishna is the incarnation of Vishnu. And Vishnu is the one who is the preserver of this universe. When this whole world was created it was necessary to create a preserver also because this world would have been destroyed and completely if it is left alone without a preserver, then the way human beings are, […]
Shri Krishna puja. Yamuna Nagar (India), 11 December 1993.
Today we are going to have the puja of Shri Krishna.
In Shri Krishna’s life the river Yamuna has played a very great role. Yamuna River is a very deep river and the water has a blue colour, which they say Shri Krishna also had. While the River Ganges flows faster and much shallower than this. Next year, maybe, we might go to Allahabad, might be able to see the two rivers meet. […]
Shri Krishna Puja, Cabella Ligure (Italy), 15 August 1993
Today we have gathered here to do Shri Krishna puja.
We have to understand clearly that Shri Krishna is a very, very important deity within us; because He is the Vishnu, who resides in the Void, in the Nabhi. He is the one who generates dharma within us.
When you got your Realisation I didn’t tell you, “Don’t do this.” “Don’t do that.” I never told you that, […]
Shri Krishna puja. Ascending beyond the Vishuddhi, The Viraata State, Cabella Ligure (Italy), 16 August 1992.
Today we have decided to have the puja of Shri Krishna. We have many a times done this puja and have understood the essence of Shri Krishna’s advent, which was six thousand years back. And now, what His manifestation was, what He wanted to be accomplished has to be done in this Kali Yuga. As it is, this Kali Yuga is going into a new realm of Satya Yuga, […]
Shri Krishna Puja. Cabella Ligure (Italy), 1 September 1991.
Today we have decided to worship the Yogeshwara. I think that is the greatest name of Shri Krishna for us. That means He is the Ishwara of yoga. “Yoga” means “the union,” as you know, with the Divine. But also yoga has another meaning which means “yukti”. In English language, translated properly, not possible, we can call it as – yukti means “the trick”, the trick. But trick is always connected with something funny and bad. […]
Shri Krishna Puja. (UK), 19 August 1990.
We have arranged this Puja specially in England so that many more can come and work out the awakening of Shri Krishna.
Gita was written long time back, and it has been translated into so many languages, and lots of commentaries and criticism has been there. So this bookish knowledge of Gita has ruined many people, and even today you find there are many people who are selling the books of Gita all over and making it into a bookish knowledge. […]
Shri Krishna Puja. Saffron Walden (England), 14 August 1989.
Today we have gathered here to worship Shri Krishna’s incarnation. As you know that Shri Krishna is the incarnation of Narayana, of Shri Vishnu. So in every incarnation they carry all their qualities, all their powers and all their nature with them. So when He incarnated He had all the qualities of Narayana and then that of Rama, but every incarnation tries to rectify whatever in their previous life has been misunderstood and have been carried to the extremes. […]
Shri Radha Krishna Puja, “The Importance of Friendship”, Melun (France), 9 July 1989.
I am really over-delighted that in France we have so many visitors as well as French Sahaja Yogis for this Puja. That shows the collectivity, the collectivity which attracts all of you from all over the places, and that you try to enjoy that collectivity.
But the basis of collectivity, the foundation of collectivity is very deep; and the deep understanding can only tell you that the basis of collectivity is detached love. […]
Shri Krishna Puja. Garlate, Como (Italy), 6 August 1988.
Today we have gathered here to worship Shri Krishna.
We must understand the significance of Shri Krishna’s advent on the Vishuddhi chakra.
As you know very well, except for once or twice, Shri Brahmadeva has taken His incarnation. Also once Shri Ganesha has taken His birth as Lord Jesus Christ. But Vishnu tattwa, the principle of Vishnu, has taken many a times birth on this earth, as the Goddess had to take many-a-times Her birth. […]
Shri Krishna Puja. St Quentin (France), 16 August 1987.
It was very beautiful of [the] children to come and receive me in this beautiful manner. It can take you back to the days of Krishna when, in his childhood, he was very much respected by his friends and they tried to do all the honour that was possible. You know the story of his birth. And here we have the flowing of water, both the sides. […]
Shri Krishna, Schwarzsee (Switzerland), 23 August 1986.
Shri Krishna resides in our Vishuddhi Chakra.
In the centre, He resides as Shri Krishna.
On the left hand side, His power, Vishnumaya, His sister, resides. There He resides as Gopala, as the one who lived in Gokul, played as a child.
On the right hand side He resides as the King who ruled in Dwarika, the King Shri Krishna.
These are the three sides of our Vishuddhi chakra. […]
Shri Krishna Puja. Englewood (USA), 2 June 1985.
Today we are going to do the worship of Shri Krishna.
Shri Krishna came at a time on this earth when in India the people were very much ritualistic. They had become slaves of the so-called Brahmins who had no idea about God at all because they started a theme that a Brahmin can have a Brahmin son. So, the birth determined the caste of a person. Before that, […]
Shri Krishna Puja. Nasik (India), 19 January 1985.
Yesterday, in the lecture, I gave a new announcement about Sahaja Yoga. But the whole lecture was in Marathi language and before it is translated I would like to tell you what was my announcement.
There was a question that, in America and in England, no trust which is not a religion can be registered. Of course, Sahaja Yoga is the religion, no doubt, is the universal religion, […]
Shri Krishna Puja. New Jersey (USA), 18 August 1984.
…..many rakshasas and He used His samhara shakti, His killing powers, and His destroying powers to achieve that. Simultaneously at that time He was doing Sahaja Yoga with the gopa and the gopis in the way it was just a play, a leela. “Ra Dha. “Ra” is energy and “dha” means the one who has sustained it. She’s the sustainer of that energy. Radha. And She would go and have a bath in the river Yamuna and the ladies would go and fill up their pitchers with that water, […]
Shri Krishna Puja, Los Angeles (United States), September 18th, 1983
First time when I came to United States, I came to Los Angeles first. Because, it’s a place of angels. Actually, I thought that it must be a very holy place to come down. First of all, in this great land of United States.
Now, as you know that United States or America, the whole of it, is the Vishuddhi chakra. Out of which, we have three sides to the Vishuddhi chakra. […]
Talk before puja, “Vishuddhi Chakra”. Vienna (Austria), 4 September 1983.
Before going to America I wanted to speak more about the Vishuddhi Chakra and about Shri Krishna’s aspect within us. In the first Puja in Geneva I spoke quite a lot about it. There is no end to it, of course because it is the center of Virat. But one has to realize that the message of Shri Krishna was ‘to surrender’. Now, the surrendering that we think in the gross way is like an enemy surrenders to another enemy. […]
Shri Krishna Puja, Tannay (Switzerland), 28 August 1983.
Today we are celebrating here, in this holy land the birthday of Shri Krishna.
Shri Krishna is the ultimate of the fatherhood that I described you before, who came on this Earth and illustrated the ultimate of that. So, on this Earth, the highest fatherhood is Shri Krishna’s awareness. But in the Kingdom of God, we can say in the Heavens, or even above everything else, resides Sadashiva who does not take incarnations. […]
Shri Yogeshwara Puja. Chelsham Road, London (UK), 15 August 1982.
Today is a great day for all of us to be jubilant that the primordial being Himself incarnated on this earth as “Shri Krishna”So many aspects of His being have been described in so many of my lectures to you all; but the greatest and greatest of all the aspects of this primordial being was that He was the Yogeshwara. He was the “God of Yoga” – Yogeshwara. […]
Shri Krishna’s Birthday Puja, Bala’s home, Tamworth, Birmingham (UK), 15 August 1981
… they dictate the information about their attack, how they’re attacking about. Now, we have to know that there is a war on between the satanic forces and the Divine forces. Now you are the people who have chosen to be Divine.
But, even if you have chosen that and God has accepted you, and has given you your own powers, still you must know that you are still vulnerable, […]
Shri Krishna Puja. Increasing Collectivity, Gillian’s House, 11 Vallance Road Hove (Brighton), UK, 12 July 1981.
For attention, two centers, which is very important for Sahaja yogis and also as the situation is, one is of left Vishuddhi and one of heart itself. Just now when I was coming, I knew there were lots of left Vishuddhis everywhere and in the car also I felt the same thing. I did not know what to do. Because there were people who were thinking, […]
28 August 1973, Shri Krishna Puja, Most Dynamic Power of Love, Mumbai (India)
… by the Divine. For example, if I know only my head, that is not sufficient. If I know only my neck, that is not sufficient. If I know only my legs, that is not sufficient. But the more I know about myself, the more dynamic I become, the more expansive I become.
And all the great that existed — or all the people who were called as great — are great because they lived in many human beings. […]
