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 …

Shri Ganesha Puja on occasion of Shri Ganesha’s Birthday: He is the embodiment of purity House in Pratishthan, Pune (India)

[Hindi to English translation] Talk held in occasion of Shri Ganesha Jayanti. Pratishthan (India), 10 February 2008. Today is a very important day for all of us Sahaja Yogis, because Shri Ganesha was born on this day. We worship Shri Ganesha and you got your awakening because of Him. No matter how much you think of Him, until you know His special qualities, you cannot attain Him. His special quality is that He is the embodiment of purity [shuddha swaroop] and complete Master of the Universe. He is the incarnation of the Supreme, of Brahma. By coming into this world, He has created music [sangeet], rhythm [taal], and notes [sur]. By His Grace only, people become one with music [talleen]. A small boy came into the world and did such great work! He has given so many things to everyone, and even today He is active. No matter how much you worship Shri Ganesha, it is not enough. A lot of people say, “We don’t see Shri Ganesha, even after worshipping Him so much. We do not attain Him.” He is omniscient, omnipresent, and in every matter, but you cannot recognize Him unless you are realized. After your realization, you can recognize what Shri Ganesha is. Shri Ganesha is purity, the pure Spirit. He is the pure Spirit. When He is awakened within us, then we have no more problems. Then we achieve success in each and every task; every understanding gives success. And we find joy in everything we 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 …

2nd Day of Navaratri, Satisfy the Swadishthan Sydney (Australia)

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. Can you go and see if every one is inside? Sorry, I didn’t know you were all here. Now she said. So, I said, “All right”. Shri Mataji: You can hear Me there? Sahaja Yogis: Yes, Shri Mataji. 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 …

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 …

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. And it can be washed if your heart is full of love. Today is a day of spreading love, light of love, so that everybody feels enlightened and happy and forgets these petty problems. 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. But it has just happened, so you should know also that our destiny is all also guided and looked after. You Read More …

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 …

Birthday Puja: A very big challenge Nirmal Dham, New Delhi (India)

Birthday Puja, Nirmal Dham, Delhi (India), 21 March 2003. (Hindi/English) (Translated from Hindi) Eternal blessings from Me to all the Sahaja Yogis. You all have gathered here today, in such a large number, to celebrate My birthday. How should I thank you? I just don’t understand. So many people have come from other countries also. And even from our country, so many people have gathered here. Seeing all this, My heart fills with joy. I don’t know what extraordinary task I have done that you all have gathered here to celebrate My birthday. You all have a very big heart that today you all have come to this far off place and have honoured Me. I don’t have words to tell you people how overjoyed this has made Me. (English speech) What I was telling them, the way you are celebrating My birthday, I’m overjoyed and I don’t know how to express that joy which is really overflowing. I really don’t know what have I done for you that you have come up with such enthusiasm, with such love. It’s your great heart which is appreciating My humble work. All over the world, Sahaja Yoga has spread and again spreading like fire. That showed it was the need of the world. It was the need of the people. That’s why they have taken to Sahaj Yog with such enthusiasm. I could understand in a country like India, where they have talked about Self Realization, but in a country which is Read More …

Birthday Felicitations New Delhi (India)

Birthday Felicitations. Nirmal Dham, Delhi (India), 20 March 2003. Talk by Sir C. P. Shrivastava Madam Mayor, Shri Rahul Bajaj, Shri Debu Chaudhary, honored guests, dear Sahaj Yogis and Sahaj Yoginis Let me first clarify that we are celebrating only one birthday, and that is birthday of your Mataji. I am, you know statistically about fifteen million people living on this Earth must have been born on twenty-first of March. I’m one of them. Just doesn’t matter whether I’m there or not, but we’re celebrating today Her birthday and let’s keep to that. What I wanted to say has been said already by many, but I want to mention to you that we are celebrating today a momentous event which happened eighty years ago, She was born with a mission. Her mission was to transform humanity. For the last thirty-three years, She has been at it almost day and night. She has traveled to villages in India on foot, in the bullock cart, in a car. She has traveled by plane. She has been to many parts of the world and it is because of that individual, personal endeavor that we see what we see today. She is an Incarnation, because I don’t believe that any human being can transform a single other human being. It’s easy to deal with the machinery [applause]. In my office, I try to improve someone, I fail miserably. She has transformed hundreds of thousands of people. And when I look at you, I feel 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 …

Guru Puja: First you must have development of your left side Campus, Cabella Ligure (Italy)

Guru Puja. Cabella Ligure (Italy), 21 July 2002. (A loud thunder-clap followed by applause) In India they were all waiting for the monsoons and they are so much worried because the rain did not come. So, I was giving bandhan to the rain and it came here (applause and Mother laughs). And now also they have told, on the television, that it is going to rain in India. But first in Italy! (laughter) I was told that in Italy you needed rain very much and the first rain you had, few days back, and now this is the second one. Because all the understanding of the problems of our farmers is there.  And the rain, you see, is so kind that it works at the right time. I am surprised at the quick behaviour and obedience of the rain. Today is a great day, for all of us, because we are celebrating the Guru Puja and remembering all the great Gurus who came on this earth to teach the world about the truth. So many of them were [there]. And they tried their level best to explain to humanity what is spirituality. But it’s such a disparity that people never understood that spirituality is the most important thing we need. That we have to be one with the Divine Power. All their endeavour have been in the wrong direction. First of course they were very intelligent, more than animals, and started seeking, not the truth, but some sort of a self-emancipation I should say, or, 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 …

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 …

Diwali Puja: Soldiers of Divine Love Lake Piru, Ventura County (United States)

Diwali Puja. Lake Piru, near Los Angeles, California (USA) 18 November 2001. It’s a very, very great day today, I should say, where the evil has been suppressed. The evil that spreads its power all over is only because of two factors: one is that you are not knowledgeable, you are still blind, and you follow things which are not right, but you think are powerful. This illusion creates not only problems, but absolute destruction. So we faced a very big challenge, no doubt, and it was easily solved. It was based on all wrong basis just to create a problem. [The] problem was created with a purpose, and nobody could imagine that it would be solved so easily and so quickly. My desire was to get over it before Diwali. That has happened. Due to ignorance, also, people do lots of things. Anybody who follows some religion or some sort of a thing. It’s only because they’re not aware of the truth, they are ignorant about achieving the truth, and they cling on to the fact that they know everything. With all this happening, there have been so many fractions, so many stupid people, who are getting completely ruined by ignorance. Now you are coming to Sahaj Yoga, you know all the knowledge, very subtle knowledge; very subtle. It’s not superficial knowledge. It is very subtle. And because they don’t know this subtle knowledge, they fall into the wrong path of, I should say, ignorance, and then they try 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 Krishna Puja: Ananya Bhakti New York City (United States)

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 Virata, 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, fight our own kith and kin, fight our own close relations, friends and our gurus? Is it religion? Is it Dharma?” Before that, in Gita, Shri Krishna has described a personality which is a sage. We can call him a Saint. Or He called it a Sthita Pragna. So, when asked what is the definition of the sthita Pragna, the description He gave was about a person who is absolutely at peace with himself and at peace with his atmosphere. It’s very surprising. All this knowledge He gave in first place in the Gita. That is—that is the best, that He called as the Gnyana Marga. That is Sahaja Yoga, by which you get the subtle Knowledge. But at the same time, when you see Him advising Arjuna, it is very surprising that here He’s talking only of spirituality, of complete detachment and there He’s telling Arjuna that: “You go and fight. They are already dead people. Whom are you fighting?” This conflict is difficult to understand, that how could Read More …

Guru Puja: Introspection, Love & Purity Campus, Cabella Ligure (Italy)

Guru Puja, “Introspection, love and purity” Cabella Ligure (Italy), 8 July 2001. You don’t know how your Mother feels to see so many people who have become, really, gurus, themselves. They have been seeking the Truth in very difficult times. They have been wanting to know what is the Truth. And this difficult time, itself, has served to act upon your minds that, what is happening in this world, whatever we are seeing around us, in the whole world also, there’s something definitely very wrong and we have to go beyond. In the seeking, one thing is very important: that the person should have a great devotion about it. And also untold miseries you have to go through. Seeking is when within yourself also you are struggling and outside also you find nothing satisfactory. This is how the seeking has a double edge. In that seeking, when you are trying to get to the Truth, it seems [that] it’s a very difficult thing. But you can’t help it, because you are not satisfied with what exists around you. See the world today – it’s full of strife. All kinds of strifes are there. People are fighting for nothing at all, for land, killing human beings. Land, can it create human beings? They are fighting in a very collective manner, thinking they are doing very great service to humanity. The thinking today, of human beings, is not at all deep, it’s very superficial, and that’s how you find this world full 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 …

Conversation on Quran Swiss Hotel, Istanbul (Turkey)

Talk at Swiss Hotel. Istanbul (Turkey), 23 April 2001 SHRI MATAJI: So, the religion should be inside. That’s Sufizm. “Sufi” word comes from “saf” [clean]. Yogi: Mother, Mr. Emin is teaching at the Marmara University and teaching the interpretations of Holy Quran. SHRI MATAJI: Good. Yogi: Yes. SHRI MATAJI: But, you see, Quran also is very much recent. Sufi : There is a verse in the Quran. It says that if the people were abstain of Allah’s prohibitions and namely, if they followed Allah’s orders, if they did not do so (what they did), they would experience the abundances raining down on them from the sky. That is to say, if they did not break the rules and if they run the orders of Allah. SHRI MATAJI: It’s not that way. You see. Sufi : So I am not sure, Yes if they believed, if they believed and didn’t break the rules Sufi : They would see the gates of abundance in the sky is going to open for them. SHRI MATAJI: To whom? Yogi: To the people. SHRI MATAJI: There’s no doubt about it. But what I feel about the whole thing is that that Koran was written after forty years of death of Muhammad Sahib SHRI MATAJI: and also- Sufi :Not, no, He wrote it in his lifetime SHRI MATAJI: and you cannot remember. But despite that, I find Quran is perfect. But there are many subtler things that are missing. Now, for example, Muhammad Sahib has said Read More …

Mahashivaratri Puja: Destructive Power of Shri Mahadeva Pune (India)

“Destructive Power Of Shri Mahadeva,” Mahashivaratri Puja, Pune (India), 25 February 2001. Today we are here to celebrate Mahashivaratri. It’s a very great privilege for all of us to understand about Shri Mahadeva. Unless and until you have got your Self-realisation you cannot understand what is the great personality, the character and the powers of Shri Mahadeva. It’s not easy to conceive – also to reach the depth – of His greatness unless and until we are humble. We have to be very humble to reach at the lotus feet of Shri Mahadeva. As you have seen that one has to cross even the Sahasrara to be at the lotus feet of this Great Personality. He is beyond, beyond our conception, but He resides in our hearts as the Spirit and is reflected very well when you get your Realisation. But still one has to understand the powers of Shri Mahadeva; which is not very easy to describe about this great God in little words. But the first power He Himself has [is] that He is a very forgiving God: He forgives; He forgives us so many of our sins, so many of our destructive activities, our horrible mind which tries to create problems for everyone, up to a point! But He has the greatest power to destroy. His destruction comes so suddenly because He rules all the elements. All the elements He rules: He rules the Mother Earth, and He rules all other elements. Through their causal, He rules. Read More …

Guru Puja: Shraddha Campus, Cabella Ligure (Italy)

Guru Puja, “Shraddha”. Cabella Ligure (Italy), 23 July 2000. Today we are here to know about guru principle. What does a guru do. Whatever you have, all the precious things within you, he discovers them for your knowledge. Actually it is all there – everything. All the knowledge, all the spirituality, all the joy, is there. (little laughter as a dog walks on stage) Right time! (more laughter). It’s all contained within you. Only thing the Guru does (is) makes you knowledgeable about your knowledge, about your own spirit. Everyone has the Spirit within himself. Everyone has the spirituality within himself. There is nothing that you get from outside. But before getting this knowledge, you are dealing, or you are living in ignorance. In that ignorance you do not know what treasure you have got within yourself. So the guru’s job is to make you know what you are. That is the first step. That it starts, that awakening within you by which you know that you are not this outside world, this is all an illusion. And you start getting enlightened within yourself. Some people get full light and some people get it gradually. Essence of all the religions is that you should know yourself. Those people who are fighting in the name of religion, you have to go and ask them, you have to enquire from them, “Did your religion make you know yourself?” If all the religions have said one thing [it’s that], you have to do 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 …

Kundalini connects us to the all-pervading power of truth Pellissier Building and Wiltern Theatre, Los Angeles (United States)

Wiltern Theatre Public Program, Los Angeles USA. 1 June 2000. I bow to all the seekers of truth. At the very outset, I have to say we should know what is the truth. Everybody is seeking the truth but they have no idea as to what they should find. There is an urge within us because these times are special, and we are seeking. But still, we don’t have a clear-cut idea as to what we should seek and what we should achieve after our seeking. Now I would like to refer to all the great books on religion, about truth. They all have said that, “You have to know yourself” – knowing yourself is the point – and that you have to become the Spirit. It’s said in all these religions but though we can find that these religions are not really doing that. They are not yet able to give you the truth. And that’s why there is so much of conflict, so much of fights going on. They are all real religions no doubt, and the essence of every religion is the same. Despite all of that they are fighting in the name of religion. How can that be? It can be explained very well, that if we have lost our way we can go into opposite directions. So, when we know, we have to know ourselves. And that is our goal of life. That is how we are going to improve on our life as such. Read More …

Birthday Felicitations: Love Your Country New Delhi (India)

Birthday Felicitations (English part), Delhi (India), 22 March 2000. Our honoured guest, our respected Home Affairs Ministry is here, Mr. Advani, who has been always a very great dezabhakt [patriot]. I admired him because he loved his country; he is very patriotic. And this is – [Big applause] And as you know, My father and mother both were very patriotic. They sacrificed everything for the country, and I also was always condemned by everyone as being a very patriotic person. [Applause] We must love the country in which we are born. There is some connection, very great connection, between yourself and your country. And I have seen that after Sahaja Yoga, all those who have been transformed into new visions and new ideas always know what’s wrong in their own country, and so conscious of it. I am surprised that every one of them have been able to tell Me what’s wrong in their country and what should be done. They never identified with the wrongs or the misdeeds of their country. It’s very surprising. On the contrary they said: “Mother, all these countries require Your attention so that they should be corrected.” Their politicians should be corrected, their citizens should be corrected and that people should really evolve into a new consciousness. All of them have been working it out. Now we have here very few Sahaja Yogis from abroad, but I tell you it’s surprising how these Sahaja Yogis have enlightened thousands and thousands of Sahaja Yogis all over the world. Read More …

Birthday Puja: Divine Love New Delhi (India)

Birthday Puja. Delhi (India), 21 March 2000. [English Transcript] I am so very filled with joy and My heart is so full of gratitude for all the Sahaja Yogis who have been able to create this beautiful place. I cannot imagine how much they must have worked hard in such a place to create such a beautiful area, such a blissful place. How in Sahaja Yoga people work together with tremendous respect and love for each other, and produce something that is unbelievable. This was just a wilderness, and you have brought so much of life and light in this place. You wanted to celebrate My birthday. I don’t know what is such a significant about it. But the way you have really shown your understanding and respect, I am just enamored. I can’t understand what have I done for you, that you should do so much for Sahaja Yoga. As it is, today is also a very auspicious day which we call as the Holi. They play Holi on this day and show their love and oneness among themselves. This is the time when we have to really understand the value of love, of respect of others, because so far we have based all our theories and all our ideas on the principle that human beings cannot love each other. They are always trying to overpower others or to hate others, or to grab things from others. Such a wrong idea we had all these days, and that’s why Read More …

Athena – the Primordial Mother Athens, Caravel Hotel (Greece)

Public Program, Greece, 9 November 1999. I bow to all the seekers of truth. First of all, we have to know what is the truth we are seeking and how we are going to seek it and what is the proof that you have got the truth. Firstly, we must know that you cannot purchase the truth. It is, you cannot market it, because truth is love and love is compassion. So now, I am going to tell you about the truth, about how in Greece they knew about the truth. Yours is a very, very ancient country. And in our country also, in our old books, the ancient Puranas, it’s mentioned about your country. They have described Athena very clearly. And gradually this great country became absolutely ignorant of whatever they knew. Now between you and Me, I would like to tell you that there is a power within us in the triangular bone. Shri Mataji, aside: If you can move out then somebody can show you. OK? [Hindi] That is the bone which we call as sacrum. This name “sacrum” was given by Greeks in those days meaning sacred. That means they knew there is a sacred bone below the spinal cord. This is the triangular bone that existed and was having this power, which in India we call it Kundalini. Shri Mataji, aside: So soon? [Laughter] Sometimes Greek language is very long and sometimes very short. [Laughter] All right. Now this bone has this power and if you see Athena on 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 …

Shri Ganesha Puja: We must respect Mother Earth Campus, Cabella Ligure (Italy)

Shri Ganesha Puja. “We Must Respect the Mother Earth,” Cabella (Italy), 25 September 1999. Today we have gathered here to worship Shri Ganesha. You all know what a powerful Deity He is. His power comes from His innocence. When we see small children, we’re automatically compelled towards them and also we want to love them, kiss them, and [have them] be with us. And very innocent they are, extremely innocent. And when we worship Shri Ganesh, we have to know if we have been really innocent or not. These days people have become extremely cunning and they don’t mind any amount of cunning. They play all kinds of cunning games on others who are innocent and simple. They can justify themselves always, that whatever they are doing is the right thing in these modern times when everybody is so cunning. This cunningness can take you to the other extreme of right side, which is very much punishable, in the sense that some people develop all kinds of problems which are physical, you can say. Like, their hands can get paralyzed or their leg can get paralyzed. Also they can have other troubles with their liver treatments and all that. All this comes up. Then to punish them, a disease of a psychosomatic nature might set in.  At this time, when you have these problems, all such people who suffer from the right side should worship Shri Ganesh. For example, these days the life is very, very much busy with all Read More …

Evening Program: Don’t criticise others, Eve of Shri Ganesha Puja Campus, Cabella Ligure (Italy)

Evening program before Shri Ganesha Puja, first part, Cabella Ligure Italy, September, 24, 1999 [After performance, on video at 2:51:29] It was really very interesting to go through various programmes coming from different countries. I Myself was overwhelmed that Sahaja Yoga is spreading to all these countries where they have created such good artists and such good program. We didn’t even feel how the time passed. Lastly, the critic – of course I always say, “Don’t criticize others”. But specially the art, when people start criticizing, the art is dying out. [Cut in the video] … And is now only the critics are criticizing is a fact. If not, the art that will come up will be so hideous and heinous that we’d can never enjoy that art, because it will be only for money – cheap type, which can be sold in the market. And this kind of intellectual analysis of everything is responsible also to the decline of pure art. We are doing it all the time. We all think we are very intelligent and we can criticize, all the time correcting these artists – is a common thing. It’s not only artists, but in every field of life we have become very much arrogant, and we think we know everything and we can criticize others. By which we stop their progress completely. Not only that, but we also stop our progress, because whatever you do with your mind, is not in any way global, in any way spiritual. 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 …

Easter Puja: We have to establish our meditation Istanbul (Turkey)

Easter puja. Istanbul (Turkey), 25 April 1999. Today, we are all here assembled in Turkey, in Istanbul, to celebrate the resurrection of Christ and, with that also, your celebration of your resurrection.Christ’s resurrection was a great message for us. He won over the death and came out of that dead body with another body which was living body. The body was the same, but one was a dead body and another one was a body which was living. It’s not only symbolic, it actually happened within. After all, He was a divine child, He was a divine person. Actually it has happened within. It’s not just a symbolic thing that He died and He was resurrected into another person or, you can say, into a living person. For Him, what is the death? For eternal beings, there are no deaths. There’s no death for a person who’s eternal. He may, for the time being, look as if He is dead, but He can never die. Christ was like that, a very, very special incarnation, which came on this earth to be reborn out of the dead. Now we are also, when we are not yet realised souls, when we are not yet enlightened. We are also dead in the sense, our awareness is very, very… I should say, absolutely dull and dead. We can see flowers, we can see faces, we can see buildings, we can see cities, we can see all those things. All these things we see and Read More …

Birthday Puja: We all should be together, whatever may be the differences New Delhi (India)

Birthday puja (Hindi). New Delhi (India), 21 March 1999. Hindi Part (for subtitles) (Translation from Hindi) After seeing this love, my heart is filled.  And I am thinking that love is such a big power by which so many people are attracted and become happy.  This is such a surprising thing. In this Kali Yuga, no one would have seen this greatness of love.  I think that after seeing this, all of you should learn to increase your love.  And this thing is very easy.  And you can do it in this way – by meditating morning and evening, then the bad thoughts in your mind which cause jealousy and anger and you get hurt by small things, all such thoughts will end.  And after that what’s left, it’s Nirmal prem.  With this love you can give the whole world a new life. (English starts here) I have told them in Hindi language that love, you can see one person’s love manifested in so many eyes here.  And when I saw the enthusiasm also My heart got filled with great love, greater love. So one can see how powerful is this love.  All kinds of bad feelings, negative thinking and also self-destructive elements can be corrected and controlled very simply in Sahaja Yoga, if you with sincere heart meditate morning and evening, twice.  That time you shouldn’t see your watches of course, but enjoy, enjoy your meditation.  That will give you such a strength to love others, to forgive others; Read More …

Christmas Puja: Become Thoughtlessly Aware Ganapatipule (India)

Christmas Puja. Ganapatipule (Maharashtra, India), 25 December 1998. First, I’ll speak in English and then in Hindi. Today, long time back, Christ was born. You all know the story of His birth. And of all the sufferings He had to go through. He’s the One who has given us a model of a Sahaja Yoga, for He didn’t live for Himself, in no way. But He lived for others, working out the Agnya chakra. You may be divine, you may be very powerful, but this world is so cruel that they don’t understand spirituality. They don’t understand the spiritual greatness. Not only that, but there are many factors which attack spirituality. They have always done it. Every saint has suffered a lot. But I think Christ has suffered the most. As you know, He was endowed with all the powers of Shri Ganesh, as He is the reincarnation of Shri Ganesha. The first of them was His innocence. He was the eternal child we should say. That He couldn’t understand the cruelties and the hypocrisy of this stupid world. Still, if you understand what can you do about it? But with great courage He took birth in the country where people had no idea of spirituality. I have read a book about Him saying that He came to Kashmir where He met one of My forefathers – Shalivahana. It’s very interesting because it’s all in Sanskrit and the writer perhaps did not know Sanskrit, so he has given everything in 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.

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 …

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 …
