Christmas Puja: You have to be loving, affectionate, kind and disciplined Ganapatipule (India)

Christmas Puja. Ganapatipule (India), 25 December 1997. Christmas Puja,Ganapatipule (India), 25.01.1997 [Translated from Hindi] Today, we are here to celebrate the birthday of Shri Jesus Christ. Jesus Christ’s life was very short and He spent most of His time in India, in Kashmir. He went back just for last three years and people fixed Him to a cross. It was somewhat destined. To open Agnya chakra He had to offer this sacrifice. So in this way He set up Agnya chakra. Agnya chakra is very constricted small and not easily openable because a human being got freedom that made him egoistic. This ego constricted his Agnya chakra. And from that constricted Agnya chakra it was necessary to take out ego And to take out ego you have to control your [MAAN – Mind]. But you do not take out your ego from your [MAAN] As soon as you will try to take out your ego from your [MAAN] the [MAAN] will go on increasing and the ego will go on increasing [ AHAAM KAROTI SAHA AHAMKAR ] We do ! It means that if we try to minimise our ego the ego will shoot up because we will try to do so with the help of ego only. Those who think that to our ego will suppress will eat less food worldwide violence one standing on one foot and some on their head Every type of experiment people do to destroy their ego But it does not supress the ego.

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 …

Evening Program, eve of Navaratri Puja, Materialism, Nature and Marriage Campus, Cabella Ligure (Italy)

4th day of Navaratri, “Materialism, Nature and Marriage”, Evening before Navaratri Puja. Cabella (Italy), 4 October 1997.  [During the evening program, after some musical performances and a play by the English, the Swiss sahaja yogis acted in a play where they openly denounced the Swiss bank (about its money laundering etc.). Ultimately, they recited the “litany for the doom of Materasura”, the demon of materialism:]  “Litany for the doom of Materasura”:  This is a world that feeds the Swiss Banks’ Octopus.  This is a world where too much is not enough.  This is a world where negativity is a plus.  This is a world where the saints say: Enough.  This is a world where 1.3 billion people live on an income of less than $1 a day and where the planet does not have enough natural resources to sustain, at a worldwide scale, the consumption pattern of Malaysia, leave alone America.  PLEASE SHRI DURGA, DESTROY THE EVIL FORCES THAT MATERIALISM CREATED.  Om Twameva Sakshat Shri Durga Namoh Namaha.  This is a world where ten per cent of world trade is generated by drugs and narco-traffics, or US$100 billion represents the amount that yearly poisons mankind, while money laundering in Switzerland and elsewhere has become a most prosperous activity, reaching all levels of society.  PLEASE SHRI RAKTABIJA VINASHINI, DESTROY THE EVIL FORCES THAT MATERIALISM CREATED.  Om Twameva Sakshat Shri Raktabija Vinashini Namoh Namaha.  This is a world where Wall Street sucks the wealth from the working middle class to bestow it Read More …

Shri Ganesha Puja: Dharma Has To Be There For Your Ascent Campus, Cabella Ligure (Italy)

Shri Ganesha Puja. Cabella Ligure (Italy), 7 September 1997. Today we are going to worship Shri Ganesha. It is said about Him that He is the first Deity that was created on this earth by Adi Shakti. As about His creation, you know the story. And also you know how an elephant’s head was attached to Him. Today, I am going to tell something more subtler about Him, Kundalini, and the Mother Earth.  He was made out of the Mother Earth, with the vibrations of his Mother. Now, the significance of Mother Earth, we have never understood. Now look at the Mother Earth: She is the one who produces all kinds of beautiful flowers of different fragrance, of different nature, colour, heights. The trees are different. Trees, when they grow up, they grow in such a manner that every leaf, every leaf of that tree, gets the sun. Look at the collective sense which is given to us by this Mother Earth.  We have never realized that this Mother Earth…is giving us everything that we want, and the sun helps the Mother Earth – cooperates, coordinates with Her. To go further with it, you have seen that picture where the Kundalini is coming out of the Mother Earth, and half of it is seen. So what does this Kundalini do for us? Or what does this Mother Earth do for us?  The Kundalini leaves the Mother Earth as a reflection. And what does She do within us to build us Read More …

Public Program: Tribute to Shri Mataji Nirmala Devi by Claes Nobel Royal Albert Hall, London (England)

Talk by Claus Nobel at the Royal Albert Hall -3rd July 1997 Well, indeed, life is full of surprises, after all we are meeting here, inspired by the message and work of holy Mother Shri Mataji Nirmala Devi and she is not here in body but she’s here in spirit. Also the wonderful letter that we recently heard from Ayatollah Rohani, which speaks very highly of the work and the mission of the holy Mother, where he indicates the importance of women in the world, is neither here. And frankly speaking only 36 hours ago I did not know that I would be here at the Royal Albert Hall, addressing this audience. Still I say, dear Holy Mother, and I also recognise her husband, Sir C P Srivastava, in the audience and I say most importantly, dear friends, fellow seekers of truth, are you out there? Because with all this light I can only see about twenty people in front of me. So, say yes if your here then I know, (lots of clapping). Now I can see you and I can hear you as well as you can see and hear me. With that said I want to say, that I have a vision, I have a vision of the world that is better, saver and saner than the one we are presently are experiencing. It is a world where people live in harmony and peace with themselves and in harmony and peace with nature. Now those words are 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 …

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

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

Mahashivaratri Puja: eleven rudras New Delhi (India)

Shivaratri puja (Hindi Translation & English part) Delhi (India), March 16th, 1997 First of all I will speak in Hindi language, and then in English.  We have such a cosmopolitan people that I do not know which language to take to. Translation from Hindi Today we are going to do the Puja of Shri Shiva.  The form of Shiva within us, is verily the reflection of Sadashiva Himself.  This form of Shiva resides in the Heart, at all times, as the Spirit.  Is there, established, immovable and permanent.  But I will not say it is enlightened.  When the Kundalini is awakened, it touches the Spirit, and then the Shiva gets enlightened within us. And that light shines on our nerves. Chaitanya is called Medhe Stithi , means the first light shining in our brain.  For the first time, the union between our Heart and our Brain takes place.  The Yoga. Under normal circumstances, man’s Buddhi (intelligence) goes in one direction, and  Mann (mind) goes in another direction.  When this Yoga or union takes place, the light which has begun to shine inside the spirit, becomes manifest or apparent, and takes the form of Chaitanya, vibrations, and flows out of the hands and the fontanelle bone area on top of the head.  You have already experienced this. What you have to know further is, that when this light comes inside us, we realise that slowly, and steadily, our life begins to change, to transform.  Our inside anger and other Shadripus (6 enemies Read More …

8th Day of Navaratri: Be Aware Of Your Own State Campus, Cabella Ligure (Italy)

Navaratri Puja. Cabella ligure (Italy), 20 October 1996. Today is a special day, as you know we are worshipping the Goddess, who came on this earth nine times before, to kill all the demons and all the negativity and relieve all the bhaktas to worship. All her work has already been described. Despite that they find, new type of devils, new type of negative people, have come back. Perhaps it had to be. This had to be maybe, after all it is Kali Yuga and the drama of Kali Yuga would not be performed unless and until they are there. So, to complete this drama, they came. But this time is going to be a very different type of war. It´s going to be the war of the peaceful people and the peaceful people are the most successful people in every walk of life, even in a war. It did not work out before. They say that when Genghis Khan came, he went to a very big monastery of Buddhist, near Gaya, and killed all of them, there were about 30,000 of Buddhists there, and they didn´t say a word and they were all killed. So people started disbelieving in Buddhism. They said, “What kind of a Buddhism is here, why didn´t Buddha save them”. That´s human style of thinking. “Buddha should have saved these 30,000 people who were peaceful, who were resisting, in a manner that was no resistance, and so they were all killed by this horrible fellow Read More …

Shri Ganesha Puja: You Must Fight For Innocence Campus, Cabella Ligure (Italy)

Shri Ganesha Puja. Cabella Ligure (Italy), 15 September 1996. Today we are going to worship Shri Ganesha. It’s a very opportune time today, I feel, where the innocence, especially in the European and American countries, is under attack. There’s no respect of the innocence, no value for the innocence. They don’t understand how important it is for human life to have innocence being respected within themselves and also without. The human life is different from that of animal life. Animals are controlled all the time, or we can say they are under a complete imprisonment, you can say, under the will of Lord Sadashiva. That’s why He’s called as Pashupati. But human beings have been given freedom to choose their ascent, to choose the right, to choose the truth. Only through innocence they can achieve that. Only the innocence is the source of joy. Without innocence, you cannot enjoy anything fully.  This innocence is today completely under challenge, and to finish the innocence, in a very subtle way, there are very negative, cruel, criminal type of people who are working it out. Their minds, if you say possessed, it doesn’t look like that, because otherwise they are quite intelligent. They are also, in a way, creative of horrible things. So you can’t say they are not intelligent, but from where do they get this knowledge of creating something so horrifying? In this Kali Yuga, as in Sahaja Yoga, everybody can take birth. There’s freedom. It was not before so much Read More …

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

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

The Vision, Immaculata (Location Unknown)

Immaculata “There is a big inner revolution that is coming up. We must understand we are delicately made beautiful flowers of God. We are human beings. And the time has come for us to become now the fruits. This is the blossom time.” “I think next century we’ll have beautiful people all around us, no trouble of wars, very peaceful we’ll be all sitting in the kingdom of God.” The Vision Since the beginning of time, human beings have been searching for answers. Who am I? Why am I here? What is the purpose of existence? Many great incarnations and prophets have tried to shed light on the human dilemma and urge us towards spiritual awakening. Like different flowers on one tree of life, they spoke the same truth but were bathed in different fragrances. Buddha saw enlightenment as the answer to our suffering: a thousand petal lotus emanating from the crown of the head. Mohammad also spoke of the “Ruh” a cool breath flowing out of the top of the head and the hands. “At the time of resurrection, your hands [and your feet] will speak” he explained. And Krishna in his playful mirth depicted the need for Yoga or union with the Divine. He spoke of the collective nature of man and the need for each of us to dissolve into the ocean of bliss. Christ also explained that salvation will come only through a second birth. Forgiveness and compassion will clear the path towards this awakening, which Read More …

Mahashivaratri Puja: Motivate your attention Bundilla Scout Camp, Sydney (Australia)

“Motivate your attention”, Mahashivaratri Puja. Bundilla Scout Camp, Sydney (Australia), 3 March 1996. Today we are going to do puja to Shiva, Shri Shiva. As you know, Shri Shiva is the reflection of Sadashiva within us. I’ve already told about the reflection. Sadashiva is the God Almighty, the one who sees the play of Adi Shakti. But He is the Father who is watching each one of His Creation or Her Creation. His support to Adi Shakti is entirely, fully strengthening. There’s no doubt in His mind about the capability of the Adi Shakti. But when He finds that in the play of Adi Shakti, the people or the world as such, try to disturb Her, or to spoil Her work, then He gets into His wrathful mood, and He destroys all such people, and maybe, He destroys the whole world. On one side He’s wrathful, no doubt, on the other side, He is the ocean of compassion and joy. That’s why, when He is reflected within us, we get our Self-Realization, we get the light of our Spirit and we get into the ocean of joy.Also He is the ocean of knowledge, so those who get Self-Realized get the knowledge of the Divine, which is very subtle, permeating into every atom and molecule, the power of this knowledge is there. His style is such that, in his compassion, He forgives even very cruel rakshasas, if they dedicate themselves to Him. Because His compassion has no limits and sometimes the Read More …

Talk to the Brides, The Responsibility of the Women Ganapatipule (India)

Talk to the Brides, The Responsibility of the Women, Ganapatipule (India), December, 28, 1995 You are all ready to get married and I bless you from My heart. Now, the duty of a wife I need not tell you, you know it very well. I’ve told you many-a-times that she is responsible to build the society of Sahaj. And as a result, she has [a] very great responsibility. She has to look after the whole family, the relations of [the] husband, and should go up to the great expectations of the family members also. This can be done if you have really love for people. If you have love, you will have tolerance and you’ll be able to bring more people in Sahaja Yoga who are related to you and to your husband by showing a very good household that you have created. Towards the husband you have to be very dedicated and don’t tell him about your past. Past is finished and start afresh. It’s a very dangerous thing to say anything about your past to your husband. So, you have your expectations, so he too has his own expectations about you. Expectations should not be there in Sahaja Yoga. But gradually, if you understand the value of your marriage and you respect it, then you will not go after superficial things. You’ll not ask him to buy this, buy that for you on a material level. But also on the mental level you should not try to judge Read More …

Shri Ganesha Puja: Project your innocence to others Campus, Cabella Ligure (Italy)

Shri Ganesha Puja. Cabella Ligure (Italy), 10 September 1995. With all the Ganapatis sitting around Me and you, all the ganas, sitting in front of Me, I don’t know what to say. It’s remarkable, very remarkable, because most of you come from a culture which has never shown any respect of Shri Ganesha. They never realized how important it was, that without Shri Ganesha’s qualities, we cannot achieve anything in our life. The idea of everyday, moment-to-moment enjoyment has destroyed them. And also, the desire to know the Divine vanishes also in the thin air because you get lost into this moment-to-moment enjoyment till you get destructive, completely destroyed. But I really don’t understand how you have achieved this state where you see the purity is so important to life; that Ganesha’s qualities, His value system, and His innocence [are] to be imbibed. I feel very gratified that such a thing has happened now in your lives and you all are so much in praise for Shri Ganesha. Shri Ganesha is there from our childhood. Yesterday you saw the children, how they were so beautiful and entertained us the most. Everybody had a smile on their face, and I said, “Don’t laugh, because if you laugh, they feel a little offended and they think that you are laughing at them.” The enjoyment that we had from that drama of the children was more than what one would expect from adults doing that kind of a drama just to entertain us. Read More …

Guru Puja: Watch Your Mind and Attention Campus, Cabella Ligure (Italy)

Guru Puja, “Watch Your Mind and Attention”, Cabella Ligure, July 16th, 1995 It is a very important Guru Puja today because we have completed twenty-five years of Guru Puja. (Hindi: “Please put the fan in the rotating manner”.) Also, it is extremely beautiful to see so many Sahaja Yogis who are, really have become, very great. It’s a question of understanding what Sahaja Yoga is. Is a very unique discovery, I feel now, that people who were seeking the Truth have found it and have now got it absolutely on their central nervous system. Yes, in some places it’s difficult to explain how it has happened, how it has worked out and how, in these twenty-five years, we have been able to achieve this expansion of Sahaja Yoga. The main thing, I feel, is that you all should know that as the tree grows, the roots have to grow much deeper and they should spread also. If it doesn’t happen, the tree cannot be sustained only by Mother Earth. So the roots are in your own life, in your own heart. When we say we have become our own Guru, we should really try to find out with our introspection: Are we our Guru or not? Because, before this your mind was on one side and your heart was on another side and your attention was in another dimension. So, these three things were creating confusion within you. If you understand a human being, then you will be surprised to see how Read More …

Mahashivaratri Puja: How To Get Detached and Ascend Castle Mountain Camp, Wisemans Ferry (Australia)

Mahashivaratri Puja 26 February 1995, Australia Today we have gathered here to do the Puja to Sadashiva. The One, which is reflected within us, is the Shiva, which is the pure Spirit. This pure Spirit within us is the reflection of God Almighty, Sadashiva. It’s like the sun that falls in the water and gives a clear reflection. Or else it falls on the stone, it doesn’t give any reflection at all. If you have, say, the mirror, the sun will not only fall on the mirror but will reflect back its light. In the same way in the human beings the reflection of God Almighty is expressed in the way your personality is. If your personality is clean and clear, innocent, then the reflection could be like a mirror. Thus the saintly people, they reflect God Almighty in the proper manner, in the sense that their own identification with wrong things is no more. When there is no such identification and when a person is absolutely the pure Spirit, then the reflection of God reflects into others. Luckily you all have got your Self Realization. That means the reflection of God Almighty is already working into your attention. The attention is enlightened by the power of the spirit. The power of the spirit is that it is a reflection. That means the reflection is never identified with the mirror or with the water. It is there till the sun shines, and when there is no sun there is no Read More …

Haldi and Weddings Ganapatipule (India)

Talk to bridegrooms and marriages, Ganapatipule (India), December 29th, 1994 [Before weddings talk; starts at 10:14] You have decided once for all. After getting married, I hope none of you will turn back. Because it creates a very bad feeling and I mean, it has become something like what is happening with other people who are not Sahaja Yogis. It’s a responsibility. I know that sometimes you start thinking. Normally, they say that, “It was such an atmosphere that Mother, we accepted and we married”. And after that, I don’t know what goes wrong. So, this marriage is not a mental marriage you must know, it’s beyond mental. If you start thinking now of one thing, then after marriage you’ll start thinking of something else. So, all those, even now, you have to decide. Because I have decided now, I’m so fed up with this kind of thing, those who do such a thing for no rhyme and reason – actually this, I don’t know why I’m doing it. Such an explanation, if you give, then you’ll have to go out of Sahaja Yoga permanently. But we can’t afford to have these kinds of things going on. Especially girls feel very hurt and are shocked. If something wrong with them, if they are aggressive or they try to get out of Sahaja Yoga or teach you something else, then I can understand. But otherwise, you should not at all, on your own, just for no rhyme and reason, give up Read More …

5th Day of Navaratri Campus, Cabella Ligure (Italy)

Navaratri Puja, Cabella Ligure, (Italy), 9 October 1994. Today we are going to do puja for Navaratri. Yesterday you saw, beautiful description of Navaratri and how the Mother Goddess has created all kinds of powers within you. It’s not that only She has the powers, but you all have the powers, and you can all work it out, you can all find out whether these powers are there or not. With us, the realisation is very important, but there the Kundalini has given you this realisation. Of course Kundalini is a part or, we can say, reflection of Adi Shakti, and also the Jagadamba is also part of Adi Shakti. She’s placed in the centre of two hearts, which is a very important point. Now all these powers are placed in that chakra. So you imagine how many of these powers must be there, and Her powers are expressed through the centre heart in all the Ganas you have around your body. Now these Ganas are the ones who do give you the protection, give you the sleep, give you the energy, give you the blessings. All of them are at work all the time, and these bodies are extremely dedicated and connected all the time to the Mother Amba, we can call Jagadamba. Now She is the Mother of the Universe, so you can imagine, how busy She has to be to look after the whole Universe! When this centre becomes weak, that means Her connection with the Ganas Read More …

Shri Krishna Puja: Shri Krishna and the Paradoxes of Modern Times & short talk in Marathi Campus, Cabella Ligure (Italy)

Shri Krishna Puja. Cabella Ligure (Italy), 28 August 1994. Today we are here to worship Shri Krishna. As you know Shri Krishna is the incarnation of Vishnu. And Vishnu is the one who is the preserver of this universe. When this whole world was created it was necessary to create a preserver also because this world would have been destroyed and completely if it is left alone without a preserver, then the way human beings are, they could have done anything to this world. But so, Vishnu is the preserver. He’s the preserver and He’s the only one really incarnates. Of course, sometimes Brahmadeva also incarnated, but He only takes forms. In our evolutionary process He has taken different forms. He came on this earth in different ways. But still He had, as you say, twelve – up to twelve was Shri Rama and up through ten He was there. So He created also an atmosphere of the many great prophets around Himself so that they could preserve the dharma of this universe. So the basis of preservation was dharma, which has got, as you know, the most important basic foundation for spiritual life. In this dharma whatever was to be established was to be established balance. Was a habit with people to go to extremes in anything. So He created a balance within us. The first principle of dharma was to create balance. If a person doesn’t have a balance then he cannot achieve his ascent. As simple as Read More …

Guru Puja: Mature and Achieve the State of A Guru Campus, Cabella Ligure (Italy)

Guru Puja. Cabella Ligure (Italy), 24 July 1994. Just sit down. Ask them to sit down on the ground. Please. You, two ladies, sit down because they cannot see from the back. Today you all have gathered here to worship Me as your Guru. I must say that I lack many qualities that a guru should have, in the sense I cannot be strict with you, I cannot be stern with you, and I really don’t know how to punish you for doing wrong things. This may be because, normally I think the gurus have problems with their disciples, who are mostly not realized souls. As they are not realized souls, the gurus find it difficult to communicate or talk to them about the subtle problems that they have. I know of many gurus even in modern times who’ve been really very, very strict. And also they told Me that they have achieved their realization by working very hard and by suffering under the strictness of the gurus. Sometimes I was really filled with great compassion for such disciples who haven’t yet received their realization. They had gurus who were really realized souls and they never had their realization, and the guru was extremely strict with them. There was one gentleman I met in Kolhapur, and he got realization in one minute. So he told Me that his guru had “told me to go for fast every month at least for eight days.” All right. “Then he asked me to Read More …

Shri Vishnu Puja: The Basis of Dharma Paris (France)

Shri Vishnu puja. Paris (France), 13 July 1994. It is such a great day today that the French got their liberation on this day. But what is this liberation for? I don’t know. In no country where they had freedom and liberation, I have seen, it has not worked something very much that was expected. Say in France… So the liberation through anger, when it comes, hatred is the basis of these revolutions and these so called achieved liberations. If the liberation takes place within yourself, so that you are no more slave of anyone of these horrible destructive forces and negative forces, then it’s a real liberation. The second thing that has happened in France, first time in Europe, it has been recognized as dharma. It’s a very big thing, and give a hand to it. [Lots of applause.] It is recognized that Sahaja Yoga is dharma. It is. But today it was recognized. This is a very big thing. I must say credit goes to your leader and to all the Sahaja Yogis of France who have worked so hard to get this sanction, this kind of a position. It’s a very great thing. So, today I was thinking that we’ll have the puja of Shri Vishnu, who was the basis of dharma. So far we have never worshipped anyone who were the basics, except for Shiva. We only worshipped the incarnations because they became as incarnation; Ganesha came as incarnation, the Goddess came as incarnations, Rama, Shri Read More …

Sahasrara Puja: Mahamaya Swarupa Campus, Cabella Ligure (Italy)

“Mahamaya Swarupa,” Sahasrara Puja. Cabella Ligure (Italy), May 8 1994. Today is a unique combination of Mothers’ Day in many countries and Sahasrar Day for Sahaj Yogis. I think this is the most important day in the history of human evolution because all other events, incarnations and ventures in the spiritual atmosphere have been of no avail. On the contrary, they have gone into a kind of a cocoon which has no door; banging themselves against the walls, creating problems out of something very auspicious and extremely, beautifully spiritual. It’s not possible to find faults with the incarnations in whose names all the religions came in. But this cocoon is the Mahamaya, I think; cocoon is the one which is ignorance. We can say that Mahamaya does not create it. This cocoon is created by the basic ignorance of human beings and their misidentifications. So, the human nature is such that it identifies itself easily with untruth. Anything that is truthful, human beings find it very difficult to compromise. And the trouble with the truth is that it cannot compromise. So, all kinds of ignorance, all kinds of falsehood, all kinds of destructive forces gather together, somehow or other, to attract the human mind. It is perhaps the ego of man that makes him feel so attracted to those things, because they all pamper his ego. As it is, the most difficult centre that we have to cross is the centre of Agnya. This centre is the one which takes Read More …

Birthday Puja: Power of Attention Kolkata (India)

Birthday Puja. Calcutta (India), 21 March 1994. Every year we have birthdays of various people, and every year we make a vow that, “This year I will not do this or I will not do that.” This is a very good way of seeing how far we have come in life. Many people who really have achieved a very great height in their spiritual life did not need a birthday. But every day they felt it’s a birthday to start, to go ahead, to understand, to learn. Every day is a New Year for them.      In our own life we see that our surroundings change very slowly. Sometimes it is shocking; sometimes you are surprised how the surroundings are not changing. But, in a subtle way, there is a tremendous change that is happening within us and without. The whole atmosphere today is governed by human beings. I don’t know how far Paramchaitanya works it out, but it is for us to open ourselves to new dimensions in our lives. For example, if we find we still have, through our introspection, we locate that we have these old, subtle, nonsensical things still hanging around us, we don’t have to vow for it. You have to just witness it, and the destructive path it is taking you to. Immediately you will give up. You don’t have to worry as to put a vow upon yourself, because now you are “samartha” [capable], meaning now you are absolutely empowered. Whatever you think is Read More …

Birthday Felicitations Kolkata (India)

After Birthday Felicitations, Calcutta (India), 20 March 1994. This was a song composed by Gurudev Rabindranath Tagore, so many years back, when he had a vision of our Ganapatipule seminars, where he describes that people from all the world will come, from different countries will come. Also, the Hindus, the Muslims, Christians, Sikhs and all kinds of communities will get their awakening on the bank of the sea, ‘sagar’. ‘Sagar’ is the sea. So beautifully every detail he has described. He was a seer and he could see the future where many people, who are seekers, to become ‘mahamanav’ they come. And it’s very surprising how these seers have seen the future. Like, as you know, C. S. Lewis is there and also we have got William Blake*, so many others. And I feel today, in Bengal, when I have come here in Calcutta, that his dreams are fulfilled. His Spirit would be so happy to know- [applause]. So, as you know that we get all kinds of people, all races, all religions together in Ganapatipule and where you all enjoy the bliss of God, where you feel that there’s an awakening. Also, he says that the great Mother has now risen, and She is awakened and She is going to awaken you. So, clearly, he has seen the whole thing. It’s remarkable how these seers can see things and reveal, to our amazement. I am very happy that we have such nice company of Baba Zaheer and his other Read More …

Mahashivaratri Puja: Surrender New Delhi (India)

Mahashivaratri Puja. Delhi (India), 14 March 1994. English Transcript It’s a great pleasure that from all over the world people have gathered to worship Shiva. Actually we should say it is Sadashiva that we are going to worship today. As you know the difference between Sadashiva and Shri Shiva. Sadashiva is the God Almighty and He is a witness of the play of the Primordial Mother. The combination between Sadashiva and the Primordial Mother Adi Shakti is just like a Moon and the moonlight or the Sun and the sunlight. We cannot understand such relationship in human being, among human marriages or among human relationships. So, whatever the Adi Shakti’s creating, which is the desire of Sadashiva, is being witnessed by Him. And when He is watching this creation He is witnessing all of it into all details. He witnesses the whole universe and He also witnesses this Mother Earth, all the creation that is done by the Adi Shakti. His power is of witnessing and the power of Adi Shakti is this All-pervading Power of love. So, the God Almighty, the Father, the Primordial Father we can say, expresses his desire, his Iccha Shakti [shakti of his desire] as the Primordial Mother and She expresses her power as love. So, the relationship between the two is extremely understanding, very deep. And whatever She’s creating, if She finds- if He finds there is some problem or there are people, human beings specially who are trying to obstruct her work, or Read More …

9th Day of Navaratri, Reintrospect Yourself Campus, Cabella Ligure (Italy)

Navaratri Puja. Cabella (Italy), 24 October 1993. Today we have gathered here to do the puja of the Devi. The Devi has many forms, but is the embodiment of the Shakti. Adi Shakti gives Shakti to all these embodiments and so there are many Goddesses we have. At different times they came on this Earth and did all that was necessary for the ascent of people who were seekers. Especially the one we know of, Jagadamba, the Durga. She was trying to protect all the seekers of Truth and to destroy all evil forces, because without the ascent of human beings they do not know the Truth, and that’s why whatever they try to do is a mental projection, and this mental projection, if it is not substantiated by Truth, by dharma, it declines. In Sanskrit they call it glani. When this glani takes  place, then incarnations are born – to solve the problem. In all incarnation of the Goddess there have been very much incarnated the satanic forces, they had incarnated, and She had to fight with them and destroy them. But this destruction was not for the destruction’s sake that the evil forces are to be destroyed, but evil forces always try to put down the seekers, put down the Saints, try to harm them, sometimes even destroy [them]. All these destructive forces do not come at the same time, normally. At different times, is easy to handle. But the aim of the incarnation is to save, to Read More …

Shri Virata and Viratangana Puja: I have to have 16,000 children YMCA Camp Whittle, Fawnskin (United States)

Shri Virata Viratangana Puja. Los Angeles (USA), 10 October 1993 Today, we are going to celebrate the puja of Virat and Viratangana. North America and South America, as you know is Shri Krishna’s centre of Vishuddhi. And it is very important to know also that all the communications, all the relationships with the whole creation has to be established through this centre of Vishuddhi. Vishuddhi, as you know is the most important centre in your ascent, in a way. Because Sahaja Yoga is not only meant for your ascent but for the ascent of the whole world, and only through Vishuddhi you can achieve it. Even if you get your Self-realization and you get all the powers, unless and until you use your Vishuddhi, it won’t work out. Look at My Vishuddhi also, talking, talking everywhere, keeping communications, Vishuddhi goes out. Also, this Vishuddhi chakra being so important, it is under attack. Attack of the negative force. Today we are going to worship Virat and Viratangana. Virat is the ultimate, the complete development of the Vishuddhi chakra is Virat. And as you know the chakra is here, here at this point (at forhead, above Bindi, at hairline). If this chakra is not alright, you are not collective. You behave in a manner that is not collective. You cannot communicate with other Sahaja yogis. You cannot be friendly, loving and one with other Sahaja yogis, unless and until this center here, Vishuddhi is alright. And it‘s part of the Ekadesha. Vishuddhi Read More …

Shri Krishna Puja: Dharma Campus, Cabella Ligure (Italy)

Shri Krishna Puja, Cabella Ligure (Italy), 15 August 1993 Today we have gathered here to do Shri Krishna puja.  We have to understand clearly that Shri Krishna is a very, very important deity within us; because He is the Vishnu, who resides in the Void, in the Nabhi. He is the one who generates dharma within us. When you got your Realisation I didn’t tell you, “Don’t do this.” “Don’t do that.” I never told you that, “This is not good.” “That is not good.” You just did, it because Shri Vishnu was awakened within you.  He is in the Void and, if He is awakened, He brings you to the light, removes your ignorance, removes your darkness, and you start seeing that whatever you were doing was destructive for you, and that’s how the dharma is established. Of course, the dharma was established also by all the ten Gurus who came on this Earth, the prophets, who taught us about dharma. So this combination of Shri Vishnu and the ten Gurus is to establish dharma within us. Now this dharma is taught by prophets, as you have seen everywhere. They have said, “Don’t do this. Don’t do that.” They have talked of Ten Commandments. Every prophet has talked about dharma, what is to be done, up to a point when Christ also had to talk about it and He says, “Thou shall not have adulterous eyes.” But Shri Krishna is the one who says that, “I come on this Read More …

Shri Ganesha Puja: Powers of Shri Ganesha Berlin (Germany)

Shri Ganesha Puja. Berlin (Germany), 21 July 1993. Today we are going to worship Shri Ganesha.  As you know, in the whole of Europe, America, England, they have lost faith in Shri Ganesh. Nor do they care for His powers and for His blessings. As a result, all His blessings are not on these countries. The first blessing of Shri Ganesha, which I think is the highest, is the wisdom: that we learn what is good for us and what is bad for us, what is constructive and what is destructive, what should we do to achieve our Self-Realization. Those people who have got wisdom are very lucky people. But wisdom comes from no source but your own understanding of life. When a person starts thinking, “Why am I doing such and such thing? What is the effect of my doing? What is the result of my behaviour? Is it good for me or bad for me?” then wisdom comes in.  Even if some people know that this is bad for them, still they do not have power to control themselves. Still they do lots of bad things which they should not do. The reason is, the power of wisdom is not there. A person who is wise does not only know what is right and wrong, but also he knows very well his own power not to do something wrong. He just does not do it.  Wisdom is a complete power within ourselves by which we try nothing: it Read More …

Guru Puja: Gurus who belong to the collective Campus, Cabella Ligure (Italy)

Guru Puja, Cabella Ligure (Italy), 04 July 1993. Today we are going to have Guru Puja. I am supposed to be your guru but I feel sometimes that the idea of a guru is very different from mine. Normally, a guru is a very, very strict person and has no patience of any kind. Even, say [in] music: there are gurus who teach music in India; so all the disciplines have to be absolutely followed. I know about this great musician, Ravi Shankar. We had been to Maihar where he came and my father was very much respected by his guru, Allauddin Khan saheb. So he asked him, “Why don’t you play something?” So he didn’t tell him anything [at] that time. Then he showed a big bump here. He said, “Sir, do you see this?” He said, “What?” “My own tanpura he broke on my head, because I was a little bit out of tune.” Otherwise, he was a very nice man, I must say; I knew Allauddin Khan saheb. But when it came to teaching… It’s a tradition I think, that you have to put all kinds of disciplines on the students but still the students stick on to the guru. They look after all the time. They are bothered with the guru. If the guru, he wants this thing, they’ll run, if he wants this, they’ll do. A guru goes on taking different types of tests of the disciple. Like Shivaji’s guru asked him that, “I would Read More …

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

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

Interview Athens (Greece)

Short Interview on TV, Athens, Greece, 1993-04-27 Sahaja Yoga means: “Saha” means “with”; “ja” means “born with”. So it is a right; every human being has got to be in union -that is Yoga- with the Divine Power. And it’s within yourself “Sahaj”, born with you spontaneous. [Cut in the video] Journalist: Explain to us what is Kundalini? Shri Mataji: Kundalini, as I told you, is the reflection of the Primordial Mother within us. And she is individually everybody’ mother. Now, she is anxious to give you your second birth. When she is awakened in the sacrum bone she rises upward and crosses through six centres, pierces through your fontanel bone area and reaches a point where you get connected to the All-pervading Power. It’s like, you can say that it’s like a cord you have to connect to the mains. So unless and until you are connected to your mains, you do not know what you are. Once you are connected then you start knowing that you are the Spirit. [Cut in the video] In the same way, it rises when it is awakened, very simple. But for that, you have to have somebody who has the authority to raise it, a spiritual authority. Supposing tomorrow, if you get your Realization, you can do it also. [Cut in the video] Journalist: What is the relationship between Kundalini and Goddess Athena and Mother Mary? Shri Mataji: Now “ata”, “ata” means, in Sanscrit language, “primordial”. So, according to us, Athena was Read More …

Arrival Athens (Greece)

Arrival conversation in Athens, 25/04/1993 2:47 [To a baby] How are you? He’s brought so many Sahaja Yogis. 5:07Shri Mataji: So many are here, so many Greeks here. It’s a great promess to Me.Translate it. Greece should be the first country in Europe which should take to Sahaja Yoga.Because Greece is a – I mean it has a heritage, same heritage [as Indians]. And we have to give them faith in their heritage now. All that they have forgotten, they have to remember.I’m sure it’s going to work out very well now with such [inaudible; vibrations?].6:09It’s a, it’s an important country, as you know very well, Greece is very important, politically also and military wise.So it’s important that this country should have their own heritage back on themselves. Because so many people have learnt from you before, and again if this country comes up to its own level, every body will have to learn [from them?].So you all have to be very proud actually of Greek’s land. And that you have to take the responsability of transforming your country in a beautiful new age country.You can do it, it’s very simple. I was happy so many dedicated people are there, here.[Inaudible][About coca] I had already before.Thank you.I’m so happy.Sahaja Yogi: Yes Mother we are very happy Mother being here. Thank you very much. Shri Mataji: I can’t see the children before now and it’s [Inaudible].Sahaja Yogini: Yes Mother.Shri Mataji: If they can feel the cool breeze alright.Sahaja Yogi: Yes Shri Read More …

Easter Puja: One has to have faith in one’s self Magliano Sabina Ashram, Magliano Sabina (Italy)

Transcript of Easter Puja. Magliano Sabina, Rome (Italy), 11 April 1993. We all have today gathered here on top of this beautiful mountain to celebrate the resurrection of Christ.It’s very significant for Sahaja Yogis to understand the great event of His resurrection by which He showed that the spirit does not die. He was — He was the Omkara. He was the Logos and He was the Spirit, that is why He could walk on the water.And also, now we have made a film where we have shown how the Mooladhara, which shows the carbon atom as clearly, if you see from the right to the left, you find a proper swastika there and left to the right we see Omkara. But when you see from downward upward, what you see is alpha and omega. That proves beyond doubt that Christ, as He said, “I am the alpha and I am the omega,” shows clearly that He was the incarnation of Shri Ganesha. It’s a scientific proof you have now with us and that’s how we can tell people that it’s a fact. I don’t know, at the time of Christ this alpha and omega was known to the mathematicians, but definitely to Him when He said, “I am the alpha and the omega.” His was an incarnation very remarkable and very important for our ascent. If He had not resurrected Himself, we could not have achieved our ascent at all. So, it’s a great contribution. The resurrection of Christ Read More …

Birthday Puja: Satya Yuga New Delhi (India)

Puja for the 70° Birthday, New Delhi (India), 21 March 1993.  It is very difficult to speak even for Me. To see so many Sahaja Yogis sitting here with such shining faces from all over the world – as if My vision has taken its form today. I see in you the saviours of tomorrow who are going to save this world from all the Kali Yuga calamities that are surrounding us.  It is coming from all sides, while you people have really taken your second birth from this pond of Kali Yuga and have really become beautiful lotuses of different colours, hues, fragrance and beauty. Instead of you celebrating My birthday, it is better I celebrate your birthdays! [Applause] As I told you the other day, that it is you who are such great seekers, seekers of truth, of love, that it could work out; otherwise it would have been impossible.  To even transform one person is very difficult, but you were so sensitive and so deep that this subtle knowledge, I don’t know how it penetrated your being. It’s unbelievable. I can’t believe Myself what great people have taken birth in this Kali Yuga. No one can believe that there are so many saints sitting before Me, so many Ways, so many Nalis are sitting before Me.  In the history of spirituality, it has never happened. Even in the heavens there are few devatas and devas – not so many – one better than the other. Such beautiful heart, such brilliant brains, and such active attention. Read More …

Christmas Puja: Express Christ In Your Life Ganapatipule (India)

Christmas Puja, Ganapatipule (India), 25 December 1992. [English translation from Hindi] Today, we are celebrating Jesus Christ’s birthday. His incarnation was a very great thing. And, about Him, there is description in the scriptures also, as to how Mahavishnu’s incarnation will take place in this world, and He will become the foundation of the whole world. But, since the religion started taking an opposite direction, it got diverted to various different forms, and everything got drowned into darkness and ignorance. Therefore, the unity of dharma on this beautiful tree of divine power, where one after another beautiful incarnations took birth, got divided into different religions which were established. And, by taking these dead flowers, human beings made their own religions and started fighting. Jesus Christ is the incarnation of Shri Ganesha. and there is proof for this. About this proof I will tell you later in English. But from His life we have to learn that the life of Jesus Christ was extremely pure. Just like Shri Ganesha is pure, similarly, after taking His incarnation in this world, and while being in this world, He lived in complete purity, because impurity just couldn’t touch Him. This was how extraordinary His incarnation was. And because of this incarnation in this world a very big event took place, that our Agnya chakra got opened. As He was crucified on the cross, our Agnya chakra got opened and this was a great boon granted by Him. He had to do this so He Read More …

Shri Mahakali Puja: She is the Holy Ghost Salvador-Bahia (Brazil)

Shri Mahakali Puja, Salvador-Bahia (Brazil), 14 October 1992. It is so nice to be here in Brazil, especially in Salvador. I’ve been to a gentleman a long time back, from my husband’s office, from Brazil, and his wife was suffering from terrible black magic. And she really was cured of that trouble. So he told me that, “You have to go to Brazil because it is full of lots of negative things specially the black magic, so you must go there somehow”. And so it was my great desire to come here and that’s how I came, few years back. Also, Duilio was here and, I mean, things were arranged somehow, Sahaj, so I came here.So, the problem of this country is more, is this black magic that is brought by the people from Africa. So I have thought today, we, let us have Mahakali Puja.Mahakali is the left-side Power in us. So, actually, she is Adi Shakti. Only when she enters into the left side of the Virata we call her Mahakali, but she is the power of pure desire of God. Then she establishes Shri Ganesha herself. Then she goes to the right-side as Mahasaraswati. And then she enters into the centre where she is Mahalakshmi. That is how Adi Shakti takes three forms. But Mahakali is the pure form, because she’s not yet taken- I mean from Adi Shakti, she is Mahakali Power. So, first thing she, before creating this universe or anything, she created Shri Ganesha. Read More …

1st Day of Navaratri, 10th Position Campus, Cabella Ligure (Italy)

Navaratri Puja. Cabella Ligure (Italy), 27 September 1992. Today is the first day of Navaratri. And when I found that the rain was there and all kinds of problems, and Vishnumaya was suggesting some things, I just consulted the calendar, and you will be amazed to know that in the calendar it is written that till five forty-five it’s not auspicious – it’s inauspicious. After five forty-five only the right thing starts, so just imagine, by calculation how it was correct that five forty-five we had to have this puja, after five forty-five. That is, the first day of Navaratri starts in Italy or in Europe after five forty-five. So it is something one must understand that the Chaitanya is working out everything, and it is giving all the suggestions; because I had not at all seen the, what you call the tithi, but I just felt that, I said that we’ll have it in the evening. And when I said it, I said “Let’s see this,” and there it was. There’s so many things we have to see, that whatever has been revealed to you, you can verify it. For example, I had said long time back that Mooladhara Chakra is made out of carbon, carbon atom, and if you see it from left to the right – right to the left, left side you see nothing but a swastika. So, now you see from left to the right, then you see Omkara; and once you see from down Read More …

Shri Vishnumaya Puja: Stop Feeling Guilty Shawnee on Delaware (United States)

Shri Vishnumaya puja. Shawnee, Pennsylvania (USA), 20 September 1992. Today, we have decided to have a Vishnumaya Puja. In this context, one has to know who is this Vishnumaya and what is Her – you can call it mythological [Shri Mataji laughs gently] – but a historical relationship. I have told you that America is the country of Shri Krishna and He’s Kubera, as well as He’s Yama. Because He’s Kubera, people have got their affluence, they are rich people, they have money, more than anywhere else, but if you do not remember, that you have to have balance and that Shri Krishna’s power is of Mahalakshmi. So, Mahalakshmi Principle is such that where seeking is important, Vishnu Principle is there when Shri Lakshmi is His power. After getting the Lakshmi up to a certain point, then you jump into a new awareness or a new sort of a seeking which is the seeking of the spirit where the Mahalakshmi principle starts, the central path. That far, of course, in America it started, the Mahalakshmi Principle, but people did not know, they had no discretion to know which way to go for their seeking and so many got enamoured by false advertisements, by all kinds of promises, claims and things and I came here long time back at that moment where I knew that the seeking now is showing results and that all the people from all over the world will try to come down here because there was a Read More …

Shri Ganesha Puja: Genetics of Wisdom Campus, Cabella Ligure (Italy)

Shri Ganesha Puja. Cabella (Italy), 30 August 1992. Last time you had asked Me for Gurupada, and you should know that the essence of guru is Shri Ganesha, the innocence.  You must be knowing the story of a very devoted wife, faithful wife, of a sati. Her name was Anasuya, and she was so religious and so dedicated that they say that the wives of all the gods – Brahma, Vishnu, Mahesha – got very jealous of her. So they told their husbands that, “You must go and test her, if she’s really a woman with chastity or not.” So all of them came down as sadhus, dressed up like sanyasis. And she said she wanted to serve them, give them something. They said, “No, we want to have food.” She said, “All right, come and sit down.” She cooked food for them. So they said, “No, we will not have the food unless and until you take out all your clothes. We’ll only have the food if you take out all your clothes.” She said, “Is it so?” They said, “Yes.” So she made them into little, little children, three little children, and then she became nude, because the innocent doesn’t understand anything about it. And then she joined them together, their three innocents were joined together, and they got their Gurupada. That’s how the Adi Guru was created. So the first thing is that if you want your Gurupad, you have to be innocent. “Innocent” is a very Read More …

Shri Vishnumaya Puja: She is the daughter of Mahakali Ashram Everbeek, Everbeek (Belgium)

Shri Vishnumaya Puja, Ashram Everbeek (Belgium), 4 July 1992. Talk starts at 17:44 on video It’s a unique opportunity today to do Vishnumaya Puja because She entered into this house [Shri Mataji laughing], we have to worship Her.First we should know who is Vishnumaya. It’s very important to know because in the Devi Mahatmyam She is only described as the Incarnation of the Goddess: “Vishnumaya iti shabdita” [chant 5], She is called as Vishnumaya.But let’s see who is She? After all, this Vishnumaya is who? So Vishnumaya is the Kali, we can say, and is the daughter of Mahakali. She came on this earth and killed many, many devils and many rakshasas to save the saints from their aggression and She always acts in that manner to kill all the negativity of the world. She is very quick at it, I should say, and She knows where is the negativity and She tries to burn that negativity as fast as possible.Now the origin is like this that this Vishnumaya was the daughter of Mahakali who was created by Mahakali Herself to fight these demons, but also She was given special weapons to do this work.But at the time of Shri Krishna She was born as the sister of Shri Krishna, and instead of Shri Krishna being killed by Her uncle, as you know the story is, She was exchanged, She was actually the daughter of Yeshoda, exchanged for Shri Krishna. And this girl, little girl was killed by the uncle Read More …

Shri Buddha Puja Talk: The Search for the Absolute Shudy Camps Park, Shudy Camps (England)

Shri Buddha Puja. Shudy Camps, near Cambridge (England). 31 May 1992. Today we have assembled here to do Shri Buddha Puja. I don’t know how many of you have read of Buddha’s life, and how ultimately He achieved His enlightenment. I don’t know how many of you have really seen the Buddhists or have met them, those who call themselves Buddhist. As in every religion, all of them got lost into some sort of a fundamentalism, because none of them got realisation. And that’s why everybody established their own style of religion, even you can say that Tao of Lao Tse also, or Zen of Bodhidharma, all of them are off-shoots of the same. We have to see how He first felt that one has to seek something beyond life, once we are very much satisfied with whatever we have. Because He was a king’s son, He had a very nice wife, He had a son, and naturally anybody in that position would be quite satisfied. But He saw a very sick man one day, He saw a beggar and also He saw a dead man, and everybody crying for that dead person. He couldn’t understand how this misery has come and what is the need to have this misery. So He gave up His family, He gave up His luxuries of life, everything He gave up and went in search of the truth, as many of you have done. He would have been lost also, I would say, because Read More …

Chakras soothe you Wollongong (Australia)

Public Program, Wollongong (Australia), 4 March 1992. I bow to all the seekers of truth. At the very outset, we have to know that truth is what it is.  We cannot change, it we cannot transform it, unfortunately we cannot also know it at human awareness.  Whatever they have told you about this mechanism with in us and whatever I am going to tell you about yourself you have to treat it like a hypothesis and you have to keep your mind open like a scientist.  If it is proved that as honest people I hope, you will recognise it.  This instrument definitely lies within us.  We are not aware of it.   Of course, in the medical science they have talked about the plexuses at different levels of our spinal cord. And also, in the brain, they have talked about the crossing of the optic chiasma. Above that as the limbic area which we call as the one thousand petaled lotus.In the Bible it is described that, “I will appear before you like tongues of flames “. These tongues of flames are like petals, beautifully coloured as you see here, there are different colours to every set and they are extremely soothing to look at. They look like flames but they don’t burn. They soothe you. As it is now, we have to understand that there is a fundamental truth about yourself and that is you are not this body, this mind, this ego, these conditionings, this intelligence, emotions, Read More …

Have we reached the Absolute State? Newcastle (Australia)

Newcastle Public Program. Newcastle (Australia), 28 February 1992. I bow to all the seekers of truth. At the very outset you have to know that truth is what it is. We cannot change it. We cannot transform it and we cannot conceptualize it. Also unfortunately at this human awareness we cannot feel the truth, so something has to be done, something has to work out in our human awareness in the evolutionary process. We have become human beings from amoeba. How did we become? And if we are human beings have we reached the Absolute State? We have not. If we had reached the absolute state then there would have been no problems because everybody would have seen the same thing, would have understood the same thing and felt the same thing but because we are living in a relative world we have all these problems. As it is, most of the problems are created by human beings. If you see ecological problems, if you see economic problems, political problems, physical problems, mental problems, family problems, all of them are related to human beings. So we have gone wrong somewhere, there’s something that’s a missing point which we have not realized. The advancements we have made in our civilization, say in science, has reached such a stage that we had to create atom bomb, hydrogen bomb. So all these mental efforts we have put in also boomerang on us and create our destruction . In every way we get frustrated, Read More …

Shri Lakshmi Puja: Sea is your grandfather Chalmala, Alibag (India)

Shri Lakshmi Puja. Alibag (India), 29 December 1991. Translation from Marathi To this Chalmaal village we have come many times, Mumbaikar also came many times, and many people from all over the world have come here many times. I’m glad to hear that the people stopped drinking alcohol. This is a big thing. There are two troubles in Konkan. One is that black magic is very common, as it is like an industry there, and it is now reduced. This is the blessing of Sahaja Yoga that black magic was stopped that time, and we should educate people about that. The second thing is drinking alcohol. This kind of thing was very common, because people don’t understand what to do in their free time. So they drink alcohol. They don’t understand how much damage is being done, how much money they are wasting due to their drinking habits. Mumbai people should put in an effort to spread Sahaja Yoga to different villages nearby. People are suffering very much due to these bad habits. If such people get Self-realization then they will give up their bad habits. Due to this black magic, Lakshmi and Lakshmi’s principles cannot be established. That’s why everyone has trouble with money. Nevertheless, nowadays I have heard that the situation is better, and people also are behaving well. This is the benefit of practicing Sahaja Yoga, and you should spread this everywhere. That helps to grow people in every aspect. Here the people are religious, they have Read More …

Shri Ganesha Puja: He’s a giver of wisdom Shere (India)

Shri Ganesha Puja. Pune (India), 15 December 1991. English Talk Today, we are really sitting in very close relationship with the nature. The whole thing, as you can see very clearly, is done by villagers and in a very simple way and I’m sure you must all be enjoying it very much. [Applause] Today, being the first puja in Maharashtra, we’ll have to do Ganesha Puja. But one has to understand how it is so important in Maharashtra that people worship Ganesha. As you know, there are Ashtavinayakas, eight Ganeshas are there around this area and this triangle of Maharashtra which has got on one side one big mountain, on the other side we have another mountain which, of course, is not in Maharashtra. And also, on top, we have another mountain. So like a triangle which is made like a Mooladhara, means the Kundalini itself. So, the Kundalini of the whole world resides in this area. That’s why it is called, we should say, as Maharashtra, as the country which is very great, the nation which is very great. But I don’t know how far Maharashtrians realize that they are sitting in the land of Maharashtra. This land, which is vibrated by Shri Ganesha, has its own simplicity, has its own vibrations, a different style, a different type. The best part of Maharashtra is that it gives you a very good attention. With Ganesha so much vibrating, the attention becomes very concentrated and this concentration helps you in so Read More …

Shri Shakti Mahakali Puja: I believe in Shri Mataji Bengaluru (India)

Shri Shakti Mahakali Puja. Bangalore (India), 9 December 1991. You all have come now to Bangalore, and yesterday you had gone to Mysore, which was ruled by Mahishasura. That’s the reason you didn’t get your food (Laughter) – it crossed you. It’s better not to eat food in such places, isn’t it? All right. So, it’s a very beautiful place Bangalore is. Climate is beautiful and you’ll find always these rakshasas lived in places like this. Like in Pune, you have, you know this Rajneesh was there – here is this Mahishasura still. They always try to find places which are cold because they have so much heat in their body. Now as you know, there’s one more rakshasa here who has to be exposed. And this, today through our puja, we should achieve. In the olden days, when the Goddess had to fight the rakshasas, the rakshasas were not involved in human beings as such. They didn’t become gurus or anything. And so, now we find in Kali Yuga, they have gone into the brains of sadhakas, of their devotees. It’s very difficult to remove them. And once they go into the brain of the sadhakas, then sadhakas become, of course, possessed, they suffer, they have all kinds of problems. Despite that, they stick onto that person because they are mesmerized, very much mesmerized. And this mesmerism makes them absolutely so strong headed that even if they have to die, they won’t give up their gurus. The main thing Read More …

Confusion and the ordinary householders Madras (India)

Public Program Day 2. Madras (India), 7 December 1991. I bow to all the seekers of truth. Yesterday at the very outset, I told you that truth is what it is. If we have not found the truth we should be humble and honest about it, because truth is for our benevolence, for the benevolence of our city, of our society, of our country and of the whole universe. This is a very special time you are all born, where people have to get their Self-realization. This is the Resurrection Time as described in the Bible, it’s the time of Kiyama as described by Mohammed Sahib. This is a very special time when Nala, as you know, Nala damayanthi akhyan  – Nala was faced with Kali. He got very angry with Kali and said that “You have destroyed my family, you have destroyed my peace, and you put people into bhram, into illusions, so I’d better kill you.” He challenged Kali that “You should be finished forever.” Then Kali said, “All right, let me tell you my mahatmyam. Let me tell you why I should be there. If I convince you then you can stop killing me, but if I do not, you can kill me.” So he told that “Today all those who are seeking the truth, seeking their Self-realization, Atma sakshatkara, those who are going into giri and kandharas, into the mountains and in the valleys, searching God all over the world; these people will be born as Read More …

Shri Raja Rajeshwari Puja: The Queen of all the Queens Madras (India)

Shri Raja Rajeshwari Puja. Madras (India), 6 December 1991. Today we’ll be having Shri Ganesha Puja, followed by Raja Rajeshwari.So many names have been described of the Goddess: specially Adi Shankaracharya called Her Raja Rajeshwari, meaning She’s the Queen of all the Queens. Also for Mother Mary they have used this title in the West. These ideas have come from the pagan religion, as I have told you before, and that they didn’t come by the description of Mother Mary in the Bible. That shows that there has been lot of changes into the script of holy Bible. Also there has been lot of changes in the script of Indian scriptures, even Gita. And that’s how the derailment in every religion started. And the intellectuals took advantage of it and started projecting their own idea, saying things, describing things which were absolutely against divine Power. You are all very fortunate people on this Earth that you have discovered the reality, and you see that all these things which were mythological are true; all the things that are intellectual is not true; also whatever are used for the purpose of dividing people from each other are not true. Because we believe in all the religions, that’s why every religious person, so-called, is against us; because you are supposed to believe only in one religion and fight all the rest.If you believe in all religions, that means you are absolutely not religious – this is the concept. And that shocked them, that Read More …
