Guru Puja: How To Become A Guru Campus, Cabella Ligure (Italy)

Guru Puja, “How to Become a Guru”, Cabella Ligure, Italy, 20 July 2008 Today is a very great day for all the sahaja yogis. Because Sahasrara opened in you, you could feel the existence of God. By saying there is God that was not sufficient and to say that there is no God also was wrong, very wrong and people have suffered who have said like them. Only after getting realisation you know that there is God and there are vibrations. It’s a very big opening all over the world. Today I say that’s why is one of the greatest days for you. Many of you have felt the cool breeze on your hands and out of your brain. Some have grown in  Sahaja Yoga, some have not. Some are still carrying on with old catches. But now I have to say that quite a lot of you can become gurus, means teachers, and you should act as teachers. To act as teacher you should know Sahaja Yoga, the theory and the practice of it, thoroughly well and then you can become a guru. It’s a very responsibility, lot of understanding for a guru. You should not have any ego, first; you should not have any of your chakras catching; you should be absolutely clear all the time and there the vibrations should be flowing in both the hands. If they are moving in one hand and not in another you cannot become guru. So you have to be a Read More …

Easter Puja: You must forgive The Pride Hotel, Nagpur (India)

Easter Puja, “You must forgive”, Hotel Pride, Nagpur (India), March 23th, 2008 I never expected all of you to be here present for the puja. I don’t know how you have managed to come (laughter and applause). Otherwise, it’s a very important day today for all of us because you know how Christ died. He was crucified. He was put on a cross and then He died. Wonderful the way he said about you people. He asked for forgiveness from God. What we have to learn from His life is the way He knew how to forgive all of us. We have to also forgive people. That seems to be very difficult for people to forgive and if they are angry, they are angry, they cannot forgive. Then you are no more sahaja yogis; sahaja yogis must forgive. Very important; because that is the power you have got from Christ, to forgive. Human beings make mistakes, that is a part of their lives. But at the same time, as sahaja yogis must remember that you have to forgive. That is much more important than getting angry. So to forgive people for doing something wrong according to you or according to God, you have to forgive. And you will be surprised that the forgiveness is such a great, satisfying quality. If you can forgive people, you will become extremely pure. Because the dirt or the anger that is within us goes out. So to forgive is the biggest blessings human beings have. Read More …

Talk and Quawalli of the Evening, Eve of Diwali Noida (India)

Talk of the Evening Eve of Diwali. Noida (India), 10 November 2007. (Translation from Hindi) Happy Diwali. I wish you all a very happy Diwali. You have seen these different types of dances; understand one thing from them, that whoever has written it or said it, they are all saying the same thing. The greatest thing that they said was that the Paramatma is One. They had incarnated in different forms, avatars, but the Paramatma is One. There were no disputes amongst them. They came in this world for the destruction of evil and killing the wicked people; and this is happening. I am seeing everywhere that these evil people are getting exposed, and now it is your duty, too, to see that all those who are evil, those who are working against the Paramatma and who are ready to do anything for the sake of earning money, all go to Hell. We do not know how many Hells there are! The place where you are all sitting now is very far away from Hell. There is no relation with Hell at all. But even staying here, if you perform unreligious deeds, do wrong things, then you, too, can go to Hell. There are many types of Hells, and the arrangements to go there are also very nicely done, because those who are going there do not even know where they are going. Those who remain behind go to Heaven. Nobody on this earthly abode even knows that they may go to Hell. Doing wrong deeds Read More …

10th Day of Navaratri, Dassehra Celebrations Sydney (Australia)

Dassehra. Tenth day of Navaratri, Sydney (Australia), 21 October 2007. Mother looks at yoginis, smiles and says ‘Very happy’. Please sit comfortably. Today is the (indistinct) great day , isn’t it (ji) Dassera. [Yogis organize a microphone for Shri Mataji] Is it coming? Working?.. So today is Dassera, is a very big day in India.  They say on this day Ravana was killed. He was the worst enemy of human beings, and he was killed.  But whatever it is then, as a memory of that great man, Shri Ram, they celebrate today Dassera.  And on this day, they say, those who are dushtas,  means bad people or we can say negative, they are killed. Can you imagine?  (chuckles) So this day is regarded as a very important day in India, and they make a big statue of Ravana. You all know who was Ravana,  (yogis:  “Yes, Shri Mataji”) whom Shri Rama killed.  He was a horrible fellow and he took away the wife of Shri Ram, Sita, by force. But she was such a chaste woman that he couldn’t touch her. He tried; he couldn’t touch her. He couldn’t achieve any power over her. On the contrary she was very powerful. So at that time, Shri Rama’s mother-in-law,  I should say, who was the wife of Dasharata, she said  …she used to..she’s like a big saadhuni, and she said “that from today two marriages are not allowed, only one”.  So among Hindus there’s only one marriage. They don’t have two Read More …

(Yogis ‘YES!’) Come forward, here put the piano that side in the corner? Why is she crying? What has she got, a cake? (laughter) What is this? Yogi: A gift, Shri Mataji Shri Mataji: Ah. Oh! Very beautiful, (Mother is shown a large decorated plate) Who’s done it? Yogi: Maria and Sue Shri Mataji: You did? Very good,very beautiful, absolutely good.  Everything. What’s her name? Yogi: Sue Williams Shri Mataji: Thank you very much, very beautifully done. You can’t move further? Who is the leader here (laughter) He is the leader? So why couldn’t you get a bigger place? Yogi: Shri Mataji, we could find a bigger place but we did not want to have to transport you from here – less moving for you.  Your comfort is our only desire Shri Mataji, so yogis are happy, so long as you’re comfortable. Shri Mataji: Ha! (laughter) You are all Sahaja Yogis, and there should not be controversy between you. You should all think of the same thing, isn’t it? I feel sorry so many standing outside. Come in, come in! Can you move the piano behind? Can you all hear me? (YES!) Those Como people Read More …

Second day of Navaratri, October 13, 2007, Sydney, Australia Come here also, come in, sit here, another one also (talking to people), come forward. There are people who could not sit.

Shri Mataji: All of you? Sahaja Yogis: Yes, Shri Mataji. Shri Mataji: Those who can’t hear Me raise your hand! [laughter; applause] Shri Mataji: All right, thank you. [laughter] Want something? Come forward. Are you all right? So you’d better sing one song. I’m sorry they told me now there are people waiting. Very nice to see you all so happy here. Today is the second day and is a very important day from the point of evolution. As you know, that our second Chakra is very important, that’s why today is very important. So what is the second Chakra? Do you know what is the second Chakra? Ah! What did they say? Sahaja Yogi: Swadishthan. Shri Mataji: You must tell loudly! Swadishthan is the Chakra, is very important, because in this Kali Yuga, Swadishthana works the most. We have so many agents, [Shri Mataji smiles], to make it work and work very hard. You know what is in the second Chakra. In the second Chakra, what happens? That we are caught up by our ambition, and the ambition makes you Read More …

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 …

Easter Puja: Be Peaceful House in Pratishthan, Pune (India)

HH Shri Mataji, Easter Puja. Pratishthan, Pune (India), 8 April 2007. Shri Mataji: Today is a very important day. [Mic is changed] Hello.  Sahaja Yogis: Hello Shri Mataji Shri Mataji: Better, is it? Sahaja Yogi: Yes Shri Mataji. I’m saying today is very important. This is a new starting for you, for you all. Try to understand that you have worked very hard so far and you wanted to do much more than you have been able to do. That was your desire and it will work out, definitely it will work out. If your desire is strong things will work out and you’ll get a great chance of helping people as you have helped yourself and you are happy about it, it’s better that you decide to help others. It’s important, they all should be blessed. You can do it. There lies your leadership that you have to give it to others. Most of you have got it for yourself but you have to give it to others. Let the others also gain in their spirituality. I know so many of you got your Realization and you are so much in it and you are all very happy. So be happy and cheerful, that is the first sign that you are Realized, that  you have got the Realization. With this Realization you can give Realization to others. The speciality of today is that Christ came back to life just to do something for us. So, it’s a very important Read More …

Guru Puja: Follow My Message of Love Campus, Cabella Ligure (Italy)

Guru Puja, Cabella Ligure (Italy), 4 July 2004 It is a great pleasure for me, greatest joy, to see so many Sahaja Yogis for the Guru puja. It’s very gratifying to think that there are so many, so many of you, who are disciples. It was never expected that I’ll have so many, so many people following me. It is being expected that you all will follow my message of love. I do not have to say anything for love. Love is [an] absolute gift, gift of just feeling others. There is no talking about it, discussing about it – nothing. Just you feel that love. To feel the love I would say one has to have a heart. But how can you have a heart? It is not your own doing, it’s all there. So it is something is already gifted to you, you have it, that you can feel that love. It’s so much joy-giving, peace-giving. Love has its own qualities and one of the qualities is that love understands. Its understanding is not in words, not in thought, but [it] understands within. It can feel within, which is very important. This is the most important part one has to realise, that love, you can only feel it. You cannot talk about it, you cannot show about it, but it is within and you can feel it. And that is why today is your celebration of the Guru. It’s the celebration where you can feel that love for Read More …

Sahasrara Puja: Continue To Live A Life of Reality Campus, Cabella Ligure (Italy)

Sahasrara puja, “Continue to live a life of Reality”,. Cabella Ligure (Italy), 9 May 2004. Today is a very important day in our lives as Sahaja Yogis. This is the day when Sahasrara was opened out, which was really a very charismatic thing that happened. I never expected that in my lifetime I will be able to work it out, but it has been. And so many of you have got your Sahasrara opened. Without that, you could never have known what is the truth. You were all lost, as everybody is. First of all, Sahasrara is the only way we can perceive, understand and know the reality. You have come to know as to what is the reality and you’re enjoying that state where you know what is the reality. It’s a great blessing that Sahasrara was opened out and all of you got your Realization. Otherwise, all talks are just talks, has no meaning, has no understanding and that’s why my first anxiety was to open Sahasrara. That worked out, worked out well and all of you have got your Sahasrara opened. It’s a remarkable thing. Nobody can believe that so many of you have got your Sahasrara open, but I can see now clearly the light on top of your heads. Whatever you have achieved is remarkable, no doubt. It is because of honest searching, honest searching, that you have got it. My doing is nothing because you were just there like a lamp and I just Read More …

Mahashivaratri Puja: Guru Pad Pune (India)

Mahashivaratri Puja, Pune (India), 15 February 2004  [English to Hindi Translation] Today we are here to do the Guru’s puja The Guru is praised more than the Deities and the Gods Who is this Guru? In this, which is the most important shakti? The Guru tattwa is the Shiva. The form of the Shiva’s power we should consider as the Guru’s power. Because when we take the powers from the Guru’s shakti, and when the shaktis come within us then we ourselves become the Guru And with this, we are blessed for the whole life (Kalyan). The one who gets these powers, it seems he has got all the blessings (kalyan). “Kalyan” is a word which is very hard to explain in a few words. “Kalyan” means to get blessed from all the sides. the obtain joy from all the sides. When someone says that in the blessings you have got the Kalyan, what does it mean? What is Kalyan? Kalyan means Atma Sakshatkar, the Self-Realisation. Without the Self-Realisation, you cannot have the Kalyan. Nobody can understand without having it. All these things are in the Kalyan. Because of this a person gets all the joy, and he becomes radiant. To have this Kalyan, whatever you have to do you have done it all, whatever efforts you have to make it has all been made, the faith which you have to take, you have already taken it. But when you are all in the “Kalyanmarg” (Path of Kalyan), when he Read More …

Diwali Puja: The Need for Sincerity Los Angeles (United States)

Diwali Puja. Los Angeles (USA), 9 November 2003. Today is the great day of Diwali.That means today is the great day of putting up (?) lights, lights of your heart together to make a greater light for the world to move in a proper direction. It’s a day of great joy, and those who join in this, are spreading also great joy. But the problems are there, as they say, but for us there is no problem because there is no darkness, we don’t see any darkness anywhere, we see lights, and lights, and lights. Then what is the thing missing, missing is our sincerity. We have to be very sincere with ourselves, because it is not just a borrowed love or a borrowed joy, but it is from within the source, it’s flowing, flowing and flowing. So that is to be awakened, and that love should flow, and our small petty things like jealousies and competitions and all those things which spoilus must be washed away.

I am happy that you have been able to get some hall, it’s all luck that we got it, people were so much worried about getting a hall.

Shri Ganesha Puja: They Are All Incarnations Campus, Cabella Ligure (Italy)

Shri Ganesha Puja. Cabella (Italy), 13 September 2003 Now we are facing little children. They are the ones who are incarnations. They are the ones who are going to lead humanity into some great advancement. The humanity has to be looked after. They are tomorrow’s humanity. And we are today’s. And what are we giving to them, for them to follow? What is their aim in life? It is very, very difficult to say. But with Sahaja Yoga, they will all go in the proper way. They’ll behave in a proper way. And the whole thing will be a different mass of Sahaja Yogis coming up. But it is the duty of bigger Sahaja Yogis to look after them, to have better moral standards, to have better lives, so that they follow your life and become genuinely good Sahaja Yogis. It’s a very big responsibility – perhaps we don’t recognize it, we don’t understand – but all these are little creatures which are after the image of great souls, and they should be brought up in that way, respected in that manner, and loved with great care. This is to be understood.  The problem with our elderly people is this: that we do not consider them [the children] to be considered, to be bothered about, to be understood about. We think we are too intelligent, too good, and we need not waste our energy with them. This is the trouble of the elderly people. But today when we are sitting Read More …

Mahashivaratri Puja: He is forgiveness personified Pune (India)

Shivaratri Puja, Pune (India), 16 March 2003. Today, we are going to worship, Shri Shiva, Sadashiva. His quality is that, he is forgiveness personified. The amount of forgiveness He has, has helped many of us to exist, Otherwise this world, would have perished. so many would have been finished, because you know what is the condition of human beings. They don’t understand what is wrong, what is right. Apart from that, they cannot forgive. They go on making mistakes, doesn’t matter, But they cannot forgive others. This is what we have to learn from Shri Sadashiva. [Translation from Hindi] Today we are going to worship Shri Sadashiva. His specific nature is that, His capacity to forgive is so much, that no human can compete with Him. He forgives all our mistakes. If He doesn’t, the whole world could have come to an end. Because within him there is a power, with which He can destroy the whole creation. Though forgiveness is His inherent quality, this power of distruction within Him, is active and keeps growing. This same power, with which He forgives, when it matures or rather when it grows in abundance, He can destroy the whole world also. So first of all we need to acquire his quality of forgiveness. For small, insignificant and forgivable matters, We keep fighting. We fight over very petty, unimportant subjects. But He is forgiving to the extent that, He keeps forrgiving until, He reaches the point, From where, the distructive powers within him Read More …

Christmas Puja Ganapatipule (India)

Christmas Puja, Ganapatipule (India), 25 December 2002. Merry Christmas to you all.According to Sahaja Yoga, Christ is settled on your Agnya Chakra. His whole life is depicting the qualities of a person who is a realised soul. What He has suggested in His own life is that you should not have any greed or lust. The way these days people are greedy all over the world is really shocking. Right from the childhood, our children also learn to ask for this or ask for that; only complete satisfaction in life can give you that equanimity, that balance by which you do not hanker after things.These days even India has become very much westernised in the sense they are also very much wanting to have this and that. Actually, now in America suddenly, with this happening, people are getting to spirituality. They come to spirituality because they think they have not found any satisfaction anywhere. But we have to see from His life, the great life of Christ. First He was born in a small little hut, as you saw many of them when you come round. Very much satisfied. And He was put in a cradle which was all covered with dry, very dry grass. Can you imagine? And then He sacrificed His life on the cross. Whole thing is a story of a sacrifice. Because He had a power, power of Spirit, that He could sacrifice anything, even sacrifice His own life, so you can understand the greatness of Read More …

Diwali Puja: The Importance of Meditation Los Angeles (United States)

Diwali Puja. Lake Piru, Los Angeles, (USA) – 3 November 2002. I wish you a very, very happy Diwali. To see all of you here, is itself such a joy for me that you all have taken to Sahaja Yoga in such a beautiful way. It’s your own, Self is your own, Spirit is your own, but to take to Self is difficult. It’s only your desires, I think, which is being fulfilled. And that’s how you have got your self-realisation. It cannot be forced, as you know very well. It has to work out only with your desire, only with your surrendering. No use talking about it. No use convincing about it. What works out is your desire, simple as that. The power of desire within you works it out. There are many, who are not here, who have got their realisation all over the world. I remember all of them, and all of you should remember them. Today is a nice day when we can think of all those who are enlightened in this world. That’s the real Diwali: the enlightenment of human beings. It’s not candle, it’s not some lamp, but it’s human beings. If they are enlightened, then there’s no problem any more left. The problems come with the people who are not enlightened, because they are in the darkness. They are groping in the darkness, and some of them don’t know also that they are completely ignorant of realities. Once you come to Sahaja Yoga, Read More …

Shri Ganesha Puja: You Should Be Joyous And Give Joy To Others Campus, Cabella Ligure (Italy)

Shri Ganesha Puja: You Should Be Joyous and Give Joy to Others Shri Ganesha Puja. Cabella Ligure (Italy), 14 September 2002. Today we have gathered here to worship Shri Ganesha. Shri Ganesha is the Deity of innocence. When we are born as children, it is Shri Ganesha who is acting, and we are very innocent. And it is such a powerful thing, that with this innocence children survive under many circumstances. And we love them because they are innocent. We enjoy them because they are innocent. Once we start growing, our Sahasrara also gets closed and we develop all kinds of funny things that enters into us and doesn’t go out. It’s just there. It doesn’t go out.Innocence has a great effect on our character and on our sense of chastity. Actually, when you are innocent, you don’t know what is not chastity, what is being unchaste, what is being cunning. You are innocent and you are looked after by Shri Ganesha Himself. Anybody who tries to harm an innocent person, Shri Ganesha looks after you and manages you. Many people who are innocent in this world – of course there are very few – but they become so detached from all worldly problems, like lust and greed and many others, because they are so pure that nothing can spoil them and malign them. This is such a great blessing we have, that innocence is actually created in us. And it was created much before—all the innocence, everything was created Read More …

Shri Kubera Puja Talk: Give up from your heart Canajoharie (United States)

Shri Kubera Puja, Canajoharie (USA), 18 Agosto 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, who followed Him and who worshipped Him in a way and created a new world of this America.But, unfortunately, as the time passed on, His form vanished from the minds of the people. The reason was Krishna was represented here by very, very wrong type of people, who had no idea about Shri Krishna, thatHe was a great master of wealth, that he knew how to use the wealth and how to create the wealth with dharma, not with adharma.They all forgot about it, completely and gradually started using maneuvering powers, all kinds of, all kinds of adharmic things, cheating, grabbing money, spending their money in absolutely useless things.He’s Kubera. He doesn’t need any money, of course. He achieves money and not only that, He lived in money.They said that He created a golden house for Him, absolutely made with gold in Dwarika, but it’s submerged in the water, in the sea and nobody believed that it is true. But now they have found out His house under the waters, very deep Read More …

Evening Program, The Betrayed Prophet, Eve of Guru Puja Campus, Cabella Ligure (Italy)

2002-07-20 Talk after Evening Program of the play: The Betrayed Prophet (Eve of Guru Puja) My heart is so full, because in this great drama you have really shown the beauty of Mohammed life; how people have misused and troubled all the world around; and now, they are in trouble. He never wanted that but how human beings misunderstand such a great prophet like him. I must congratulate Guido and the all of you for acting so well and what a drama it was! The synchronization and all that also technique things you… I don’t know what to say… in every way it was a very, very beautiful drama. It has touched My heart because Mohammed is not understood by His followers, not the ones who opposed Him; such a great man of compassion, such a great man of spirituality has been so much misunderstood and Islamic world, so called, and non-Islamic, so called, they never understood the greatness of Mohammed Sahib. I mean, I was really very much touched by this because he was my loveliest son and I worshipped Him. May God bless His soul and all of you who followed Him in spirit. Spread the news, get more people into Sahaja Yoga; very easy to get Mohammed’s disciples into Sahaja Yoga if they are really His disciples. It’s not difficult to get them into Sahaja Yoga because He has already described, described that at the time of resurrection your hands will speak. He has already said so Read More …

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 …

Sahasrara Puja:  first of all we have to correct our ego Campus, Cabella Ligure (Italy)

Sahasrara Puja. Cabella Ligure (Italy), 5 May 2002. Today is a very great day I must say, to celebrate Sahasrara, the puja of Sahasrara. It’s a very unique thing that has happened that your Sahasraras were opened out. There were some very few people in this whole world; there were some Sufis, there were some saints, some other people also in China and all. But very few, very few got their Sahasrara opened out. So whatever they said, or [was] written, was never understood by the people; they actually tortured them, they crucified them and did all kinds of horrible things, because they couldn’t bear somebody getting this Realisation. So, it’s a very great day because collectively the Sahasrara has been opened. Every one of you have got it; also all over the world you have many people who have got their Sahasraras open; of course we need many more, for them to understand what is this great event of such a collective opening of Sahasrara. Some have grown very much after getting their Realisation; very much. They have understood Sahaj Yoga very well and they have developed their depth, and their consciousness is really a great awareness of oneness with the Divine. To be one with the Divine is the greatest blessing for human beings. So far they were human beings at a lower level of existence, and they had all the problems of that level: jealousies, hatred; all kinds of problems that are today – of fighting, of Read More …

Doctor’s conference at AIIMS Jawaharlal Auditorium, New Delhi (India)

Doctor’s conference at AIIMS, New Delhi (India). 2 April 2002. I bow to all the seekers of truth. Speaking before the doctors I think of My college days, while I was also studying medicine but luckily or unluckily our college stopped completely, in Lahore and I had to give up My studies. Not that I had no faith in this western education of medicine but it was a good chance by connecting this to that and understanding what is missing in the western medical education. The missing point is this, that human beings are considered in the medical science as something very individual and not connected with the whole. We are all connected with the whole. But how to convince people that you are all connected with the whole and that you are not singled out? As we are connected with the whole all our problems are connected with the whole, you cannot just consider somebody as the patient of one thing and another patient of another thing, could be that one person who has one trouble, could be having so many other troubles, so many other connections which we do not locate in the western medical science. For example, to see a person medically very sick, may be, but you don’t know, what is his mental condition? What is he doing mentally? Is he all right mentally or only he is physically something wrong with him? Now absolutely we know about so many things, like say, medically we have Read More …

Birthday Felicitations New Delhi (India)

Talk on Birthday Felicitations. Delhi (India). 23 March 2002 This felicitation function is little embarrassing for Me because I was born as a very simple person and I have been an extremely simple person. I don’t understand money. I don’t understand hatred. I don’t understand greed. I’m so simple about it. Despite that, you people came and got your Realization. It’s your own achievement. It’s your own desires that you have achieved. I find so many children nowadays born as realized souls.So I think the time is also there, that at My life, in My life itself, this was to happen. It is everybody’s lot. I think, like Shri Rama, then came Shri Krishna, then came Jesus, then other people. It was their time. And My time it is to give you all Realization. But, I must say, you all have taken it very heartily, sweetly and are using your powers to give love to others and to transform others.The other day, I was talking about love. Now the love, as it is understood, is in your heart as this, but do you know the ocean of love is your Sahasrara. When your Sahasrara is filled with love, then the life is changed. You don’t become a very intelligent man, very dynamic personality, but you are nothing but love and this love is so self-satisfying.You are not bothered if others don’t love you or they love you. You don’t see to that part. What you see is the enjoyment from Read More …

Mahashivaratri Puja: Try to weigh every step that you take Pune (India)

Shivaratri Puja, Pune (India), 17 March 2002. Tonight we have gathered here to do Shri Shiva Puja. Those people who have a clean heart can only do Shiva Puja. Those whose heart is not clean cannot do Shiva Puja. It’s a simple principle of Shri Shivaratri.As you have seen yesterday, we have snakes, or, these are horrible snakes guiding behind the Shiva Linga. The significance is this – those who are clean in heart, who are full of love for others, are always guarded by the power of Shiva, which are the snakes.It’s a symbolic thing, to say, very symbolic. But I must say that animals understand Divine force much better than human beings, much better. Because they have a clean heart. Whatever is their lifestyle built by nature, they carry on with it.But there’s no malice, there’s no jealousy, there’s not all these mean things in their heart.They do it because it is supposed to be.But the quality of human beings is only one – and that is how much they love and forgive.Loving capacity of human beings are such by which they conquer all their negative forces – they can, easily, see that it’s not good to have all these qualities, or maybe that they understand it’s not noble to indulge into all these inhuman behaviour. They are not bound to indulge into all these things. Neither they are asked to be, but suddenly they get lured by such things which has got hatred, jealousy and greed.You see Read More …

5th Day of Navaratri: Overcome hatred with love Loutraki, Sportcamp (Greece)

Navaratri Puja. Loutraki (Greece), 21 October 2001. Today we have gathered here to do the Devi Puja. This Puja was performed many a times and Devi was requested by the Devas to save them from the tyranny of devilish people. Today, I feel the same way that we are now in the grip of a funny situation, that there are people who are themselves devils I think and also mesmerized by them, who are trying to do something which they should never have done. But they don’t know that there is a climax of everything and that point has arrived where all the good people, especially the Sahaja Yogis, should put all their mind to the destruction of these horrible personalities like Mahishasura. In those days it was very simple because devils came as devils and you could see them that they are devils and all their behaviour proved that they were devils. Why they did it? Why were they cruel? Because so-called ‘human beings’ as they are – they are not – they are by nature devilish and they want to do something by which they can destroy human beings and, good human beings. It is evident that the time has come for them to be destroyed. In no way I could be against Islam or ever to criticise Mohammed Sahib. He was divine no doubt and tried to do divine work but out of that divine work these stupid people have come up who accept those devilish people. Read More …

Shri Ganesha Puja: You Have To Protect The Innocent Campus, Cabella Ligure (Italy)

Shri Ganesha Puja, Cabella Ligure, 22 September 2001. Today we have assembled here to worship Shri Ganesha. Shri Ganesha who is the Lord of Innocence. He is the ocean of innocence. And though’ he is such a young, little boy, he can fight the whole world, he can destroy all the negativity. That’s the sign of innocence. There have been stories that children who have fallen from a very great height were completely saved, nothing happened to them. Their innocence is such a powerful thing that it doesn’t harm anyone who is not to be harmed. It has all the wisdom of the world, all the understanding of the world; and anybody who tries to harm the innocence, the world, the whole world – which may not have cared so much for innocence, might not have worshiped innocence so much – but they all stand, stand up against anybody who tries to harm the innocence. You can see in your own lives around you, (if/when) anybody tries to trouble children – all of the them, whatever they are, whatever they are coming from, whatever maybe their nationality, they all jump, all jump to control and to safeguard that child. What is it? What is it within us that makes us so very conscious to protect the innocence? It’s really a shame, a great shame for us, when we find in this world that innocence is under attack. Anything else can be tolerated. Innocent people who have done nothing wrong, those Read More …

We Have To Be Transformed Royal Albert Hall, London (England)

Public Program in Royal Albert Hall. London (UK), 14 July 2001. I bow to all the seekers of truth. Some of you have found the truth, some of you have not found it fully, and some of you have not found it at all. But if you look around in today’s situation, you’ll have to agree there’s a big turmoil going on. Countries after countries are taking to all kinds of wrong things. Lot of cold war is on, people are killing each other, destroying beautiful places, cutting each other’s throat for nothing at all. They are all human beings created by God. God Almighty has created them and has brought them to this level of human awareness. At this juncture one can’t see where are we going in a collective way. This is, where have we to reach – or is it our destiny? Is this the destiny of human beings, to be destroyed by each other for land or for anything else? Think of the whole world as one, and think what’s happening all over: every day we read newspaper, every day there is some sort of a horrible news about horrible things people are doing to each other, for no rhyme and reason. We have to think, what is the destiny? Where are we going? Are we going to hell or to Heaven? What is our situation around? Can we help it? What’s wrong with human beings is they are still in the complete control of ignorance. Read More …

Birthday Puja: If you really love your country, you can never be dishonest New Delhi (India)

Birthday Puja, Delhi (India), 21 March 2001. Today you all have decided to celebrate my 78th Birthday. You have put beautiful balloons, as you put for a child on his birthday, with such loving hands. Yesterday, as I told you, you have to find out about yourself. Just try to find out also, as you love me, how much you can love others. It will be much easier to find out through introspection how much you love others and how much you care for others. If that happens, many problems of Sahaja Yoga will be solved in no time. Even in Sahaja Yoga, what I am told, that people are still hankering after money. They think it is a place where they can make some money. I am surprised. This is not the area where you can really work out that. You will be exposed in no time. On the contrary, if you people are worried about your powers in Sahaja Yoga, as leaders and deputy leaders and I don’t know what else, then also you are sadly mistaken. That’s not the place – for that you can join politics; or else for making money you can go to race-courses, or some place. If you are coming to Sahaja Yoga, what you have to get is an ocean of love within your heart, and to see that in others also. It’s a love – which helps you to do everything so smoothly, so beautifully. As I have always said, that Read More …

Shri Ganesha Puja: the sanctity of marriage Campus, Cabella Ligure (Italy)

Shri Ganesha Puja, “Your Innocence Will Save This World,” Cabella Ligure (Italy), 16 September 2000 Today, we have gathered here to do Ganesha Puja. I know very well that Ganesha is the symbol of purity, of sanctity, and worshipping the innocence. When you are worshipping Shri Ganesh, you have to know that He is the embodiment of innocence. I wonder if we understand the meaning of “innocence” or not. Innocence is a quality which is innate, which cannot be forced, which cannot be trained into. It’s just a quality, innate quality, within a human being. When he becomes Shri Ganesha’s disciple, he becomes an innocent person. Maybe you say that innocent persons are attacked by the cunning, by the aggressive, but innocence is such a great thing that it cannot be destroyed. It’s the quality of the Spirit. Innocence is the quality of the Spirit, and when this Spirit within you is awakened, you get the power of innocence, by which you overcome all that is negative, all that is wrong, all that is detrimental to your growth, spiritual understanding. So to be innocent is not possible. You have to be innocent, in the sense that you are innately innocent. This happens after Sahaja Yoga, after realization. And your power to fight all these wrong, negative feelings within you – and without – are absolutely supported, protected, by the Mother of Shri Ganesh. It’s difficult these days to tell somebody about innocence. But you know the life of Christ: He Read More …

Diwali Puja: Remove all the darkness of Kali Yuga Delphi, Camping Apollon (Greece)

Diwali puja. Delphi (Greece), 7 November 1999. It is very, very fortunate and auspicious that we are celebrating the Diwali in Greece, specially in Delphi. It has a very ancient history, and as you know Athena resided here. She was the Primordial Mother. “Atha” in Sanskrit means “primordial.” So this place has been described, has been described even in the Puranas as “Manipur [navel] dvipa [island].” Manipur is the Nabhi. Also in Sanskrit Manipur means the Nabhi Chakra. So it’s described as the Manipur dvipa, is written “Manipur e dvipa.” Just imagine these Puranas, these ancient-time books – God knows how old they are, must be at least eight thousand or maybe more – and they have described Greece as the Manipur dvipa [the island of the navel], is the place of Nabhi and where resides the Adi Shakti, that’s the Athena. So I mean, how it was known to them – maybe through torsion area, I would say; but it is written very clearly, and same we find here is the place of Athena which is in the Nabhi. Also Athena is the Primordial Mother, they say expressed Herself first in the sea on the Nabhi itself. From there She did all Her work. Now we can say that in Her movement, when She came down as existence [as Mahakali] She created Shri Ganesha and then She went to the right side and created Mahasaraswati, the, we can say, the whole universe, all creations She created. And then She Read More …

8th Day of Navaratri, The Powers of Shri Mahakali Campus, Cabella Ligure (Italy)

Navaratri puja. Cabella Ligure (Italy), 17 October 1999. Tonight we have gathered here to do the Puja to the Devi, that is Mahakali –we can call Her, or Durga. So many types of forms She has taken, to kill the negative forces that are trying to trouble or to obstruct, or even to grow the people who were gentle and good. Her forms are of different types – that we know about, that She destroyed so many rakshasas, She destroyed so many evildoers. Also we do not know that, in the World Wars that we had, She was there to protect the right type of people. And that’s how they all survived the ill-blood plan, ill-gotten plan of very cruel and evil people. The evil people have a capacity to hate and to express their hate in every way that is possible. They are really born evil and there are also who ‘become’ evil. When they are born evil, you can make them out: that their whole style is so aggressive and so vindictive about things. But hatred has no limit, no limits at all. Because, if they hate, if they hate someone, then – just to justify that hatred – they’ll say all kinds of things. Just to justify. But sometimes they don’t even want to justify. They just feel that they ‘hate’ and it’s a fundamental right they have got to hate. But these forces join together sometimes to form a joint personality of evil, which tries to Read More …

Guru Puja: Assimilating the Absolute Knowledge Campus, Cabella Ligure (Italy)

Guru puja, “Assimilating the Absolute Knowledge”, Cabella Ligure (Italy), 1 August 1999. Since we have come to Cabella, it is the ten years completed! So you can imagine how, in these ten years, we have been able to progress in Sahaja Yoga. Now, today, we are going to have a Guru puja. As I have said, you are all gurus and you want to worship me as your Guru – is alright – but the main thing one should understand [is] that you have become guru, no doubt, because you have the knowledge. You have the Absolute Knowledge, and so we can say you have become gurus, no doubt. But one has to understand that you have reached a state where you can raise the Kundalini, you can give Realisation to others. Also you know what is the Absolute Knowledge. To know the Absolute Knowledge is very important and to assimilate is even much more important. Though we know the Absolute Knowledge, we cannot assimilate it that well. That means we cannot go deep into it. What is the reason for that? We have to realise that we have all come out of the heritage that was the animal kingdom. From the animal kingdom you have evolved. So, there are so many things of the animal heritage [that] linger in us: the aggressiveness, the domination, peevishness, fear, grabbing. All these are our inheritance and they are within us, lingering. We want to grab things of others; not you people, of 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 …

Expression of Subtle Elements New Delhi (India)

“Expression of Five Elements on a Sahaja Yogi”. Delhi (India), 16 December 1998. I have been telling them that the style of Indian knowledge is very different from the Western mind. In the West, you see, if you say something, then they want to have an experimental approval. They will go to the scientists or to other people who are equipped with knowledge to know what they said in these books is true or not. They will even judge Christ. They would even judge Moses. They would judge everybody as if they are the most intelligent and the most capable people. And they write books after books against them disclosing as if they are those people who have said something, have said out of their minds or something.It is never accepted normally and if it is accepted they become absolutely fanatics. So, now according to Indian style of understanding is that first of all if a great Rishi or great Muni or a great… you can call a saint has said something, then he has said it, while you have to just listen to that because you are not equally the same. Whatever he has said is his own experience, his own knowledge and you have no business to judge him or to say this is not true, that is not true. You accept it and once you get your self-realization, it is clearly written down after self-realization, you have to grow. Grow into perfect being and then you can Read More …

Diwali Puja: Expression of Love Novi Ligure (Italy)

Diwali Puja, Novi Ligure, Italy, October 25th, 1998 I am overjoyed really today to see you all here to celebrate the Diwali Puja. We were to be in Portugal but it was not so – so we are here. Diwali Puja is a very small puja but extremely significant. Firstly in Diwali, the first day they buy something for the family. You can – maybe some cooking utensil could be, an ornament for the wife or something like that. Because that is the day of housewife. And that day is to be celebrated as the housewife’s, I should say, homage to her. As a result you know in India even now housewives are very much respected. Actually they are respected all over. You will be amazed that even in the protocol of the government receptions anywhere the wife is very important. And where she is sitting, what is her position is very important. Even today in the most modern and advanced countries also they have a special respect for the housewife. The housewife may not be educated, she may be a very simple woman, she may not be very modern. There was an experience for Me: in London we had a program where we all were invited, and the head of the delegation, his wife was missing. So they asked Me, “Where is she?” Because there is a seat for her, she has to sit there. I said, “I don’t know, I didn’t see her. She must be somewhere here.” Read More …

7th Day of Navaratri, You all should depend on Paramchaitanya Campus, Cabella Ligure (Italy)

Navaratri puja, “The  Pure Knowledge”, Cabella (Italy), 27 September 1998. You can’t imagine how a Mother who has so many beautiful children, sees them in such a joyous mood with their families, their children nicely settled down. It is very satisfying to see you all so much in joy and complete oneness with the Divine. One has to realise only one thing, that, though you are many, still, compared to the population of this world, we are very few who really know the True Knowledge, the Real Knowledge. You are the people who are knowledgeable, no doubt. But also knowledge which is not being adorned with Truth, or which is not the True Knowledge, has no meaning. All that vanishes into thin air because it is artificial. By your Kundalini awakening, you all have achieved that state where, we can say, you know. You know what is the Real Knowledge. But think of the people who do not know what knowledge is. We, take for example, we say that our knowledge is nothing but love. But one should understand the discrimination. The knowledge that is love, within you, is just emitting out from your being. You don’t have to assert. You don’t have to think. You don’t have to read some sort of poetry or go into somea romantic mood. It is just Pure Love which emits and this is the Knowledge also. How you have to relate it is this way. The knowledge that you have about yourself is Read More …

Shri Ganesha Puja: Ekakarita Campus, Cabella Ligure (Italy)

Shri Ganesha Puja, “Ekakarita,” Cabella Ligure (Italy), 5 September 1998 Today we are going to worship Shri Ganesh. I think I have told you a lot about Him and His nature, but still so many of us have not yet realized what are His powers, and what He wants. The first and foremost thing is that to respect Shri Ganesha is to understand the importance of chastity. Chastity is not only for the women; it is more for the men to observe. If you have self-respect, in the real sense of the word, you will take to chastity without any difficulties. But if you have no self-respect, then you run after something which is very low, of a very degrading quality. So it’s very important that chastity must be respected, must be understood, and must be imbibed. This habit of not observing the proper protocol of the chastity develops from childhood. And we have to be very careful, when we are in a Ganesha state, we should not take to such horrible things. I don’t know from where people get the ideas. As you see today, in the whole world there’s a crisis of chastity. In the West, especially, we have heard of so many cases of child abuse. In a temple of God one should not even take the name of this dirty disease which has grabbed the people. But in India we have never heard of it, we don’t know. Of course, some of the men are very, Read More …

Shri Krishna Puja: He Gives You The Witness State Campus, Cabella Ligure (Italy)

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. It is combined together. Now the witness state is such a state where you just do not react. If you react, then the problem starts. It’s a very simple thing to understand that we react through our ego or through our conditioning. Otherwise there is no way to react. Anything. Now, for example there is a beautiful carpet here. As soon as I look at it, if I use my ego I’ll start thinking, “Now, from where did they get it? How much they paid it?” This is the first reaction. Then you can even go further with it. Anger can come in. “Why did they bring such a nice carpet? What was the need to put it here?” Goes on like that, one after another. Now in my conditioning if I see these things, I would say that this color is not suited for Krishna Puja. They should have had another color for this Krishna Puja. So this kind goes on from one to another to another. But 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 …

Sahasrara Puja: Blessing of Divine Pours Only If Sahasrara is Completely Open Campus, Cabella Ligure (Italy)

Sahasrara Puja. Cabella Ligure (Italy), 10 May 1998. Today, it’s a great day because Sahasrara day and Mother’s day have come together. It’s a very Sahaj happening, I think, and that is what we have to understand, how Sahasrara and the motherhood go together. Sahasrara was definitely opened and Mother had to do it, because formerly those people who came on this earth tried to teach people about dharma, to bring them to the central path, to the straightforward path of ascent. They tried everything, whatever way They thought was good for a particular community, particular area, particular country. They talked about it and lots of books came out of it, but instead of all these books creating people of religious, spiritual and a united nature, created people who were all against each other. Absurd, it’s an absurd thing, but it happened. So all these books that were written, all this knowledge that was given, was all misused by human beings, just to get their own power, I should say. So, it was all a power-oriented, also money-oriented game going on. When we see the outcome of all these religions, we feel it’s all empty. They talk of love, they talk of compassion, but it all is for a purpose. It is all a political game sometimes, because they still feel that they should have power, not the spiritual power, but the worldly power, so that they can dominate the whole world. So, this domination started working so much in Read More …

Easter Puja: You Can Spread Sahaja Yoga Only Through Love and Compassion Istanbul (Turkey)

Easter Puja. Istanbul (Turkey), 19 April 1998. Today, we are celebrating the Resurrection of Christ. That is the greatest message of Christ life, not the crucifixion. Anybody can be crucified and killed, but this dead body of Christ was resurrected from death. Death itself died and He overcame it. It’s a miracle for ordinary human beings, definitely, but not for Christ, because He was a Divine person, He was Shri Ganesha, He was Omkara Itself. So, He could walk on the water, gravity would not affect Him, and also He got resurrected because death could not affect Him. Such a great Divine personality, specially created for human beings that people should recognise Him. But they did not recognise Him, they killed Him, in a very brutal manner. And even now they think [the] cross is a great thing because Christ died on a cross. It’s a very cruel idea of human beings to respect the cross. What does it show? It shows that people liked all the cruelties done to Him, symbolising cross as the one that represented His death and these atrocities, the way He was tortured. So, it was a very sad time when He was crucified. But when He got resurrected it was the most joyous, most auspicious and most beautiful time. The resurrection of Christ is very symbolic for Sahaj Yoga. If Christ could be resurrected, then if human beings also can be resurrected, because He came as a human being with all powers and He Read More …

Birthday Puja: Be confident, don’t lose your confidence New Delhi (India)

Birthday Puja, Delhi (India), 21 March 1998. [English Transcript] I was overjoyed to see the way you had organized this beautiful welcome. I must say that it’s your love which finds all kind of expressions of enjoying Sahaja Yoga. I really can’t understand how these unique ideas come to your heads, and you represent the different countries from where you have come. I wish you carry these flags back to your own countries, and tell them the message that the time has come for our resurrection, that we have to rise. We have to rise above this human level to a higher level of existence. And if that happens, then how it changes your life, how it makes you happy, how you lose all your absurd ideas of hatred and of harming others, injuring others: all this kind of ideas which have worked out to give some sort of a sadistic pleasure to many people, and they have enjoyed the way they want to destroy the joy of others, the happiness of others. To maintain the happiness, I know, you being Sahaja Yogis, you have to bear a lot, tolerate a lot of nonsense. You have already done it, and gradually once Sahaja Yoga is established in your own countries as something that is so beautiful, so very pure, so very important that all others in your countries also will try to follow that path which you have crossed over. Only your lives are the ones which will reflect the Read More …

Birthday Felicitations: Put Attention To Your Spirit New Delhi (India)

75th Birthday Felicitation Program. Delhi (India), 20 March 1998. I bow to all the seekers of truth.So much has been said and really my heart is full of gratitude for all of you to come here, all the way, and the way people have described about Sahaja Yoga. To understand Sahaja Yoga, we should know where are we today in this Kali Yuga. What are we facing today? It should really make you feel quite disturbed to see the way things are going on in every country, everywhere. What’s the problem? What is the, such a need for people to become so restless, full of tensions. Collectively, country-wise, anywhere you go you find some sort of a confusion. Terrible. The whole society seems to be boiling with a kind of a fear of destruction. What is the reason? There are so many religions, so many organized, disorganized, all kinds of things. There are so many sadhus and saints. There are so many books written about what you should have. But the only one who is a seeker of truth should see one point: Why, why there is so much problem in this world and how can you help them? Where is the problem? It is inside the human being. As described, you see, we have come out of a animal stage to a human stage. We have a human awareness, no doubt. In that awareness, we start seeing all kinds of things that are not good, which are destructive, which Read More …

6th Day of Navaratri, Your Beautiful Qualities will prove the Truth of Sahaja Yoga, Devi Suktam explained Campus, Cabella Ligure (Italy)

Navaratri Puja, “Your Beautiful Qualities will prove the Truth of Sahaja Yoga”. Cabella (Italy), 5 October 1997. [Upon arrival Shri Mataji is welcomed by yogis singing “Durgati Harani Durga Ambe”] Today is the sixth day of Navaratri.There have been many incarnations of the Goddess for different, different purposes. But when the great saints introspected themselves, who were worshipping the Mother, they found out that what She has done for us.The other day I told you the dharma is the innate valency of human beings. And they are ten. This is already established within us, but we deviate, deviate from dharma and all the problems come in, because to leave the dharma is not a human quality. But Goddess Herself has done so many things for us already, within us, though we are not aware of it. Is said that “ya Devi sarva bhuteshu” – “all those whom You have created” – means mostly the human beings – “What do You do? As what do You exist inside the human beings?”.Now, just introspect if you have these qualities within you or not, because they are given to you by the Goddess, by the Shakti within you. Like: ”Ya Devi sarva bhuteshu shanti rupena samstitha” – is very important, that You exist within human beings as peace.Do you find thus human beings who are peaceful within and without? Very difficult. But She has given you that, She has given you that peace which you have to achieve. Now it comes, because you Read More …

Shri Krishna Puja: Primordial Taboos and Sahaj Dharma Campus, Cabella Ligure (Italy)

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 – dharma doesn’t mean what we understand as Hinduism, Christianity or Islamic nonsense – it is not. Dharma means, our primordial taboos that are built-in in the human beings. About these, I think aboriginals knew better than we. But then what we did, we dominated them and also they had to change their style of life. The primordial taboos are only understood if people are trying to understand oneself or else, whatever has come to them through tradition. Now, Sahaj Dharma is a little bit different, in the sense that it’s much higher than the Sahaj ideas we talk of, but it’s much higher than even what Shri Krishna said or Shri Rama said. First Shri Rama thought, best is to give them disciplines. People should be serious about life, have full idea about their own being, they should respect themselves. All these things were written down long time back. Also, people, basically when they were good people, they understood that whatever is bad for us, we should not do. These are primordial taboos. Now, these Read More …

Guru Puja: A Guru Should Be Humble And Wise Campus, Cabella Ligure (Italy)

Guru Puja. Cabella Ligure (Italy), 20 July 1997. Today’s puja is very important for us. You all have got your self realisation, you have all the knowledge that is necessary to give realisation to others. You have to know what you have already, that’s very important, because if you do not try your hand and if you do not try to give realisation to others, firstly you will have no faith in yourself – you’ll have no self esteem also.The second part is that, you try giving vibrations to other persons but don’t get involved with that person. I’ve seen some people get too much involved . If they give realisation to one person they think they have done a great job and they start working on that person, his family, his relations and this. So, so far as you must have learnt, that one may be related, one may be closer to one person but not necessarily he will have that much of a chance of self realisation. Only way to grow is to be collective, there’s no other way out. If people think that by staying away from ashrams, alone living somewhere, they will achieve much, that’s not the way Sahaja Yoga is meant. Formerly people used to go to Himalayas and most of them were separated and only one or two persons were chosen for spiritual growth. Here it is not a question of spiritual growth, it is a question of your collectivity growing in you. That Read More …

Shri Krishna Puja: Freedom Without Wisdom Is Dangerous New York City (United States)

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’s time was, as you know, at least two thousand after Shri Rama. And Shri Rama created lots of disciplines for human beings to follow in the path of their ascent. According to the time everything works out. So people were extremely rigid, disciplined, and it so happened that people lost the touch with the truth. They would leave their wives, ill-treat their wives, do all kinds of things in the name of Shri Rama; because always human beings take to something which is not right. The another side they never saw, how Rama went after Sitaji to find Her, and He fought the horrible rakshasa Ravana to get back His wife. So the other side people never see. Only this side they saw that He was very strict with His wife, and if the wife stayed over in some function He got so angry, and He shouted at Her and He threw Her out, and all those things. That is how Shri Krishna came in. Always Read More …

Shri Kartikeya Puja: The spirit of Kartikeya Vashi Health Centre, Mumbai (India)

Shri Kartikeya Puja, (Marathi and English talk), Mumbai (India), 21 December 1996. [Marathi to English Translation] Today you all have expressed the desire to do a puja to Shri Mahalakshmi, but here in Maharashtra, Shri Mahalakshmi is worshipped regularly and she has appeared here in Maharashtra but I had an immense desire to tell you all about Shri Kartikeya because he took birth in this Maharashtra, he was Shri Gyaneshwara himself, I have not said anything about this until now because Maharashtrians find it difficult to understand it. Shri Kartikeya himself took birth in this Maharashtra and he wrote such great and deep scriptures like Gyaneshwari and Amrutanubhava. You can ask a question by putting your attention to see if Shri Gyaneshwara was an incarnation of Shri Kartikeya and you will find yourself in an ocean of beautiful, joyful cool breeze. I never told such a big thing like this in Maharashtra, because of the change in nature of Maharashtrian people now. Maybe because of all the horrible politicians we had here, and it might have influenced the Maharashtrians, (and Shri Kartikeya means, being in here, quite simple Maharashtrian……… a bit unclear.) We are someone great, it was very true what these people were telling me just now, that there were 40 IAS officers had come and there were three policemen on horseback, from where I came, so I asked who had come, they told me that the chief secretary himself had come. The Governor himself of that place said Read More …
