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 …

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 …

Shri Mahalakshmi Puja: The pangs of materialism Kalwa (India)

Mahalakshmi Puja in Kalwa, 1993-12-31, India Tour [Translated from Hindi] In today’s world we are facing so many difficulties and while facing all these difficulties, we are thinking that one day all the human race will disappear. It will not. And to think like that is quite normal as we are facing natural calamities all around. In Maharashtra, there was a very big earthquake and people were so afraid of that. Since last three years, I was telling them why they are drinking alcohol in front of Shri Ganesha, dancing dirty, misbehaving, etc. Shri Ganesha is very wrathful. I do not know why He tolerated this for three years. I told them very clearly that if you go on like this, you would face earthquake in Maharashtra. However, nobody listened to me and carried on with their misbehavior in front of Lord Ganesha. Alcohol is available everywhere in Maharashtra. Now, I see that there are two types of people in Maharashtra, one is alcoholic (mlechas) and other are pure and clean like Sahaj community. If you want to save your children and to give them good environment, then try to bring them in Sahaj culture and to accept it yourself. I am receiving everyday ten to fifteen letters from Sahaja Yogis how their difficulties disappeared, their children are behaving good, were saved from accidents, etc. So, I think that the benefits of Sahaja Yoga must reach to others also who are not Sahaja Yogis. Nowadays, many kind of people come 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 …

Shri Buddha Puja: You must become desireless Brielpoort Deinze, Deinze (Belgium)

Shri Buddha Puja, “You must become desireless”. Deinze (Belgium), 4 August 1991. Today, we have assembled here to do puja to Buddha. As you know Buddha was a son of a king. And one day He was shocked to see a very poor man, thin man, walking on the street, very unhappy person, and He felt very sad about it. Then He saw one person who was very sick and about to die. Then He saw a man who was dead and people were carrying him to the cremation ground. This all upset Him very much and He started thinking about it and seeking what is the reason for all these happenings in human beings. Firstly, why do they become so miserable or sick, or, why do they die so miserably? The reason He found out in His search. He went round the whole world, I should say, in the sense: He read Upanishads, He read … went to many gurus, went to many places of spiritual education, Benares, everywhere He went. And ultimately, He was sitting under a banyan tree when suddenly His kundalini was awakened by Adi Shakti and He got His realization. Then He realized that the reason for all this is the desire. In Sahaja Yoga, we have now understood that all other desires are not pure desires. Firstly, whatever desires are fulfilled, we are not satisfied by it, first thing. And secondly, all these desires have a repercussion. So what is the pure desire? That, you Read More …

Seminar Day 1, Introspection and Meditation Shudy Camps Park, Shudy Camps (England)

Advice, “Introspection and Meditation”. Shudy Camps (UK), 18 June 1988. This year we won’t be having I think, public programs in UK, because also there are certain circumstances. But whenever there is a circumstance which, somehow or other, changes our programs, we must immediately know that there is a purpose behind all that change, and we must immediately accept it with an open heart that Divine wants us to change. Supposing I am going on a road and people say, “You are lost your way Mother.” That’s all right. I am never lost because I am with myself! (Laughter.) I had to go by that particular road, is the point. I had to do it, and that’s why I have, supposed to be not on that road and I have lost my way. If you have that kind of a understanding, and if you have that satisfaction in your heart, then you’ll find life is worth much more than what you think it to be. Now, as it is, what was the reason, I thought, that we have decided to have public programs this year definitely, and we could not have public programs? So, the reason is that we have to consolidate. In the growth of a tree, which is a living tree, it happens that it moves in a particular direction up to a point till it has to change, because there is no sun coming that side, maybe there is no water levels arriving, so they start changing. In the same Read More …

Public Program Kolkata (India)

1986-10-12 Calcutta Public Program (Hindi) And I request you, that all those who are wandering in search of God, they too will have to take support of music first. Without that the work will not be done because the speciality of our Indian music is such that it can only be attained only by austerity and hard work. Human beings can have vision of the Divine in it’s various aspects such as it’s gravity, it’s flight, it’s spread, it’s depth, it’s delicacy. And all music emanates from that Om(AUM), which is known to people as the Spirit(Atma). Therefore, when man becomes engrossed in this music it is easy for him to find(get to) God. Maybe you find my words a bit poetic and they seem somewhat far from reality, maybe it feels, that I’m saying like this just to please the musicians, but this is not true. We also have seven energy centres(chakras) within ourselves and in total there are twelve chakras, similarly music also has seven notes and including five other notes the whole scale is formed. When Kundalini moves on our chakras, it produces a sound(note) The same notes are considered in our music. Our Indian music was founded by great visionaries, sages and saints. They may be belonging to any religion, be born in any part of the country – North, South, East, West – wherever they may have taken their birth, but considering the Spirit as the foundation, the whole musical edifice is built. They didn’t Read More …

Public Program Jaipur (India)

1985-03-24 Public Program [Hindi] Jaipur (India) Greetings to all the seekers of truth in Jaipur. Every individual lives according to their beliefs. Whatever beliefs one adopts, they shape their life. However, there comes a point in such a life where one realizes, “What I have thought so far, the beliefs I have held, have not borne fruit. I have not attained joy from them, I have not found resolution, and I have not attained peace.” When that point confronts a person, they become doubtful of their beliefs. And at that moment, they begin to search for what lies beyond, what lies beyond this, what world is beyond this, which I must attain. When this journey begins, only then can we say that a person becomes a seeker. In the pursuit of truth, one wanders far and wide. Sometimes one thinks, “If only I gather wealth, then through that wealth I will attain joy.” Then one thinks, “Let me attain power – through attaining power, I will attain joy.” Then someone thinks, “If I just love a particular person, then I will attain happiness through that alone.” Moving beyond this, when one rises to expansiveness, they think, “If I serve all beings, do some good for them, perform actions for their upliftment, then I will attain the Divine.” But these are all human beliefs. Through human belief, one cannot reach towards the Divine, because the Divine is infinite, and with limited intellect, we cannot dive into the infinite.  If we think Read More …

Bordi Seminar Final Talk, Maya Is Important Bordi (India)

Bordi Seminar Final Talk, Bordi (India), 9 February 1985. On this occasion when you are all leaving me, is rather hard to listen to these qualities described in your beautiful song. My words are so loaded with a feeling of extreme sadness, plus the exuberance of new ventures, some ideas that I have to do much more to establish whatever you are describing me. So many rakshasa are to be killed as you have described Me. All the disparities are to be removed from this world. All the ignorance, the darkness, the chimera has to be removed, as you have described me. It is very easy to destroy this world and it was easier to destroy the demons and the devils, but today the time is so precarious that all these have entered into the brains, the Sahasrara of many seekers. So, it’s a very delicate task to remove those horrible influences to save the seekers from the clutches of these devils. You have been very kind to understand that it is a very delicate thing and we cannot do it with harshness, with bluntness, with straightforward statements. We have to take them round because there are hard rocks and make them understand through compassion, love and complete concern. Discretion is the only way we can manage and one has to use all kinds of methods of discretion to save these people. Once a maximum number is saved, the rakshasas can be destroyed. As it is they are so much Read More …

Makar Sankranti Puja: Let us be peaceful within Suryavanshi Hall, Mumbai (India)

Makar Sankranti Puja in Suryavanshi hall at Mumbai (India), 14 January 1985. [Starts at 9:13] Today we are celebrating here a special day called Makar Sankrant.For the information of the foreign Sahaja Yogis, I will explain to you what it means. [Shri Mataji explains that She will speak first in English then in Marathi]. It means the day, today is the day the sun crosses over from the Tropic of Capricorn to the Tropic of Cancer. It is a very big day for us because, now during the summer time we have the harvest, and we look forward to the rain and so many things that happen in every country. The sun falls at right angles in this country during the summer season and so we welcome the sun. We eat something – that you must have eaten already – what we call as til and jaggery. It is to prepare your body and your mind to give it sufficiency to receive the sun. Because if you are living in the cool season, then all your body, mind becomes lethargic and you become also sometimes very lazy about things in the sense, that the day is so small, that you cannot achieve many results. So the body has become cold as we call it. We take these things, which give us heat so body is prepared to receive the heat of the sun to welcome. To overcome the inertia setting by the cold weather and also to invigorate the body’s Read More …

Shri Ekadasha Rudra Puja: Rudra is the destructive power of Shiva Como (Italy)

Shri Ekadasha Rudra Puja. Faggeto Lario, Como (Italy), 16 September 1984. Today, we are doing a special type of puja which is performed in the glory of Ekadasha Rudra. Rudra is the destructive power of Shiva, of the Spirit. Now one power, which is His nature, is forgiveness. He forgives, because we are human beings, we commit mistakes, we do wrong things, we get tempted, our attention is disturbed – so he forgives us. He also forgives us when we spoil our chastity, we do immoral things, we do thieving, and we do things that are against God, talk against Him. He also forgives our superficialities, jealousies, our lust, our anger.  Also He forgives our attachments, petty jealousies, vanities and also possessiveness. He forgives our egoistical behaviour and also our subordination to wrong things. But every action has a reaction, and when He forgives, He thinks that He has given you a big grace-mark, and that reaction builds up within Him as a wrath, against those who are forgiven, [who] try to do greater mistakes. Especially, after Realisation, because such a big blessing there is of the Realisation – you’ve got the light and, in the light, if you are holding onto a snake then His wrath goes up because he sees how stupid you have been. [Italian translator is confused. Shri Mataji re-iterates] What I am saying is that after Realisation, especially, He is much more sensitive that, people who are forgiven and have been given such a big Read More …

Devi Puja: Shivaji the Anchavatara Satara (India)

Puja in Satara: Shivaji the Anchavatara. Satara (India), 7th February 1984 English Transcript It is not proper, but He was not just a mere king, you see He was a Devi bhakta and an ansha avtara and His Mother was also an ansha avtara. What is the sign of an ansha avtara is that they have extra powers over themselves and over others, and they have no temptations, no mistakes. [Shri Mataji speaks in Marathi to the sound technicians about the sound system problem.] So, first of all we should know that Shivaji himself was a divine person in the sense that He had no defects in him. He was a detached personality. I do not want to tell you the whole history about him, but his character if you study you will be amazed how detached He was. He was not found of women. He never hankered after them and on the contrary respected women very much. There is a story that once He was presented with the daughter-in-law of a great nawab because the people used to do, I do not know what you call those tactics where you attack the people hiding from behind. [Shri Mataji is speaking with the sound technicians and the Sahaja Yogis present there about failure of the sound system due to load shedding, load shedding is a problem the people of this place face every Tuesday. Shri Mataji asks the Sahaja Yogis present there to try to listen to Her from their Read More …

Public Program Gandhi Bhawan, New Delhi (India)

Public Program, New Delhi, 1983-02-07 Because many people have written about it (inaudible) and a lot of people have been thinking that something should be done in this matter of finding the truth. (Unclear) Now when human (inaudible) his condition would be such that he only believes this thing (inaudible) and he has no other means. Whatever have been the achievements of Science, we have seen only through the medium of intellect. But the intelligence that is, tells us only about what is visible in the world. It tells us nothing about what is invisible or can’t be seen. And can’t even tell what is the difference between the Truth and invisible. Then it should be thought first that when a person talks of the search for Truth then first of all he has to consider that whatever we have known through the intellect, have known nothing, even then we remained in illusion. What we have known through our intelligence, whatever we have known till now, that much has happened, we have known from what is visible (UNCLEAR) but have not known what is in the invisible or hidden. And could not even know that what we have to know from what is visible whether it is the Absolute Truth or not. Now when the achievement of Science is ours, then Science is on our heads, we have known a lot through Science. We have reached up to the atom and molecule. The activities that we have understood are also Read More …

Evening Talk eve of Adi Shakti Puja: Dedication Through Meditation Cowley Manor, Cheltenham (England)

Complete Dedication The Only Way/ Dedication through meditation. Cowley Manor Seminar, Cheltenham (England), 31 July 1982. Today, for the first time, I’m venturing to say something which I should have said much earlier. As today I told you that it is necessary that you have to recognise me. And that recognition is fixed. That condition is fixed. I cannot change it.  As Christ has already said, that: “Anything against me will be tolerated, will be forgiven, but anything against the Holy Ghost will not be.’’ It’s a very big warning – very big warning. Perhaps people don’t realise what it means. Of course none of you are against me, that I know, and you don’t do anything against me, that’s very true. After all, you are my children, I love you very much and you love me. That’s only the warning that Christ has given you. But one must think why we are not progressing so fast as we should have. When people are mesmerized, they fall completely flat on the ground in front of their gurus, absolutely. They give up their money, they give up everything – homes, houses, families, children, and just go flat – when they are mesmerized. Without asking any questions, without going into any detail, without trying to find out the life of their guru. All such people also go very fast into darkness, into greater darkness, and into complete destruction. But you are sahaja yogis and you have to construct yourself. I didn’t want Read More …

Practical session, Guided meditation on Prana and Mana Bramham Gardens, London (England)

Practical session with Sahaja yogis, Bramham Court Ashram, Brahmam Gardens, London, UK, 29th October 1981. Shri Mataji: All right? Good, good. How are you? How is the Baby? YOGINI: It feels good. SHRTI MATAJI: [Shri Mataji laughs] Hmm. Yeah. How to keep the [INDIST.]. Hallo! We give a Bandhan. Really I have forgotten. What was that about? Hmm? [to the Baby:] No, no, no, nolu, nolu, hoho. Hoho, oh ho. [all laugh] Oh. Oh. Oh. Haha. Haha. [all laugh] Aha. Haa? Aha, haa … BABY: Hm. [all laugh] Shri Mataji: He like it. [Baby breezes loudly]Yesterday’s picture upset Me so much, I couldn’t sleep the whole night. Horrifying – in one city there are three thousand children on the list who are battered and out of which every week six are killed. Can you imagine? Six are killed every week – I mean shame-full it is, I tell you. I used to think in the whole of England. It is only in one city. In Birmingham I think it was. Three-thousand children on the list and every week six are killed. Yogi: Now what use to work for the NSPCC Mother? The national, that is the national society for the prevention of cruelty to children. Shri Mataji: Ah, where? Yogi: And my wife used to work for them and …. Shri Mataji: Where was that? YOGINI: In London but it [INDIST.] country. Shri Mataji: Ah? YOGINI: [INDIST.] here to London [INDIST.] Shri Mataji: In London it is a? Yogi: Yes. Read More …

Introduction to Mooladhara Chakra New Delhi (India)

Public Program, New Delhi (India), 5 February 1981. Today I am going to speak in general, about Sahaja Yoga and Kundalini awakening. ‘Sahaja’ as you know means SAHA means with and JA – born with you. But perhaps people do not realize what Sahaja actually means. It is spontaneous, but what is spontaneous? Spontaneous is not that, supposing I am going in the car and suddenly I meet somebody. I say spontaneously I met that person. Spontaneous means that happening is a living happening. It has to be a living thing which is spontaneous, it’s a very mysterious word, that cannot be explained and that happens without any understanding about it, which is not possible for a human being to understand. That is Sahaja. Sahaja may mean it’s very simple it’s very easy, it is, it has to be. For example, God has given us these eyes, these wonderful eyes that human beings have got, that not that they can see the colour but can also appreciate it. God has given them a nose, which is so well developed that it can feel the filth. Animals cannot feel it. You have become a human being I have become human being and everybody has become a human being – become – from an amoeba stage spontaneously. Can you explain that? How it has happened? Further we can see everyday we see so many spontaneous things happening. Today you go in the forest, you will see lots of flowers there, in the Read More …

Public Program University of Delhi, New Delhi (India)

Talk at Delhi University (Hindi). (India) 11 March 1979. [Hindi to English translation] Work starts at 4 o’clock in the morning and it takes time till finish all. Yesterday I told you that [today] I will tell you about Kundalini. Can everybody is able to see this chart? Those who cannot see come and sit on this side. Come here and sit here nicely. Those who cannot see come to this side. (Shri Mataji says in Marathi that, “Wind is very strong, right.”) Yesterday I told you that the constitution with which human beings are made up of, that constitution has done very special work in us and due to this only, we are created.  The things which I am going to tell you now are not discussed [described] in current modern sciences. As I told you current modern sciences only knows those things which are comprehensible or can be actually visualized and this vision of human beings is not yet having light of Spirit. Still human beings are not enlightened [matured). Things which now I am going to tell you can be known only after enlightenment [maturity]. Whether these things are really existing or not existing within us, that you yourself can see.  First thing is that human beings get situated [settled]. Firstly, his existence is formed. Whole universe also initially gets its condition. If it does not get its condition then cannot happen. So, when this condition is created is due to power of God in us, the Read More …

God’s Love Balmohan Vidyamandir, Mumbai (India)

God’s Love (Parmatma ka Pyaar), Public Program, Bal Mohan Mandir, Mumbai (India) [Hindi to English Translation] I bow to all of you, seekers of truth. Yesterday you were present in big numbers at Bhartiya Vidya Bhavan. And in continuation, whatever needs to be told further, I am going to talk to you today. The topic was “Experiences Of Divine Love’. In today’s times when science is more prevalent, talking about God is laughable, and talking about God’s love is all the more laughable. Like I had mentioned yesterday, especially in India, the scientists here have not reached a state where they can think about God, it is sad to know. Whereas, in foreign countries, scientists have reached a state where they are unable to scientifically explain what’s next and they also say that, it is correct that whatever we know is falling in the parameters of science but what we know is nothing. The source of this knowledge is some weird thing that we are unable to understand. Like big scientists of Chemistry say that these periodic laws are beyond our understanding. It is a unique invention done so beautifully. The way each atom and molecule is designed. The way each atom contains a whole universe, this is beyond our understanding. They say that we can never invent something like this. We even can’t explain how this was invented. This earth is rotating at a particular speed and how and how the gravity is working on it? We can tell Read More …

Talk to Sahaja Yogis: I can’t think of anything other than Sahaja Yoga Mumbai (India)

Talk to yogis (Hindi). Mumbay (India), 25 January 1975. [English Translation from Hindi Version 1] Sahaja has been created for you only. But for mankind to understand Sahaja Yoga is not so easy. Because if some very great thing is obtained effortlessly, a lacking remains for its importance, its measure, faith and devotion for that Shakti, to absorb it with complete attention within through hard work. That’s why you see that mostly Sahaja Yogis are very casual. But those other Swamis, as you know, how they put people into meditation, and how they take advantage of them. Those who take money from you, make you work hard and make you stand on your heads, make you exercise, etc. So your ego gets satisfied with it and you get stuck to it. You must have seen such people who have given their all, their money, etc and then sweep the floors for these Sadhus. The getting of Sahaja Yoga is done so effortlessly [sahaja] that people remain casual towards it. Like we got our eye so effortlessly, so we are so casual about it. We have no value that this eye is so precious. But the day we get a slight pain in the eye then we realize, “O God!” That is why it is so necessary to get badhas. If there are no badhas then Sahaja Yogis will never bother. (A person in the audience asks about badhas. Shri Mataji answers.) Badha is dependent on you. Till you catch, there Read More …

Kundalini Your Divine Mother In You New Delhi (India)

Public Program, New Delhi (India), Hindi, November 17th, 1973 [Translation from Hindi to English] . Those issues which are not at all there in animals are there in human beings. For an animal there is no question of any issue, he just exists. He is not even concerned about the power which is behind his existence that, ‘which is the power behind my existence’. The reason for that is the Chaitanya Shakti (vibratory power), which creates the whole universe, sustains it and organizes it. It flows through living creatures and passes through them. Because of a particular reason in a human being and because concerning of his particular way of life, there occur some developments by which he gets disconnected with that power. In simple words you can understand that the ego which human beings have, animals don’t have. The condition of brain of human beings is one of different kind. His brain is triangular. When a foetus is of 3 months in his mother’s womb, at that time, this power enters through this triangular brain and then it is divided into three parts because of the retraction involved in this process. One part has gone down directly through the middle of forehead and remaining two parts go down through the two angles of the brain and take a turn and go down. It is because of these three type of powers only a man is different from an animal. This power which passes in the brain through triangle and Read More …
