Shri Durga Mahakali Puja: France is going down and down Paris (France)

Shri Durga Mahakali Puja, Paris (France), 25 July 1992. [A little child calls loudly: “Mataji! Jai!”. Shri Mataji smiles, Yogis laugh] Today’s puja we have arranged of Durga or the Kali. That is the destroying form of the Goddess of all the evil and negativity. This we had to do it in France, because I feel very strongly that day by day, in general, France is going down and down and down. While you people are coming up, the rest of the France is in the most pitiable condition. Firstly, as you understand, is the Catholic church, which – perhaps you are not aware of, perhaps maybe – because you don’t read any other languages, you just read French compulsorily by this country. So you have no international views or international news that this Catholic church has done so many horrible things in the past, that it is unbelievable that they have anything to do with God. They burnt many cardinals in the hearth – roasted them. Not only that, they killed so many people who ever tried to utter a word about them. They were much worse than Muslim people. They went to other countries like South America, America – all these places they’re all Catholics – even our country. And they killed millions and millions of people. Now as this is Kruta Yuga that has started, one of the things as I said yesterday is that: you will have to pay for whatever you have done, on mass Read More …

Guru Puja: Gravity Campus, Cabella Ligure (Italy)

Guru Puja. Cabella Ligure (Italy), 19 July 1992. Yesterday, you had asked me for the status of a Guru. It’s a state, It is not a status because status is external, can be bestowed upon anyone, and anybody can say that, “This is your status.” For something external merit, or something, you can give a status to a person. It is a state. ‘State’ means the innate being, evolved to that level that you become the master. Of course, you have to be your own master to begin with. No doubt about it. If you are not even your own master then how you can achieve that state? Now as I say it is innate; then one starts thinking, “If it is innate, in a Sahaj way, how do we achieve it?” There are certain faculties which we have to develop to begin with. The first faculty is if we can become thoughtless. In meditation you can become thoughtless for a short time. Gradually this short time should go on increasing – that you are without any thought. This happens also as we can say is a state, but how do we achieve that, again? Because human beings cannot understand that anything can happen spontaneously it has to be done some…something has to be done. For that, in Sahaj, we have something very, very simple, that you have got a mantra as ‘nirvichar’. So now you watch anything saying the mantra, “Twameva sakshat nirvichar,” then you’ll start seeing that, witnessing 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 …

Adi Kundalini Puja: Pure Love Campus, Cabella Ligure (Italy)

Kundalini puja, Cabella Ligure (italy), 21 June 1992. Today we have gathered here to worship the Adi Kundalini and your own Kundalini, both of them, because your Kundalini is the reflection of the Adi Kundalini. We have understood a lot about Kundalini and also we know that through Her awakening only, through Her ascent only, we have ascended into a very higher realm of consciousness. It’s not only that we have risen to a very higher realm of awareness but that it has granted us so many powers that, never before in the history of spirituality people had this power of awakening of Kundalini. As soon as they got their awakening perhaps, they went more on to the left or to the right, and tried to achieve powers which were not so much for the benevolence of others. Buddha has written clearly that, “When the incarnation of future Buddha, that is Maitreya, three Mothers put together, comes in, that time it will be used for the benevolence of people.” This is one of the signs, “of the people”, not only of Sahaja Yogis but of the people. So how can it be unless and until those who are Buddhas, means those who are Realized souls know the science of Kundalini? Those people who had very little knowledge about Kundalini, who must have read in some scriptures or somewhere which is being described, started misusing it and so they became tantrikas. But tantra, as you know very well, is the mechanism 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 …

Have you got the ultimate reality? Madras (India)

Public Program Day 1. Madras (India). 6 December 1991. I bow to all the seekers of truth. If we are the real seekers of truth, we have to be honest about it and sincere, so that we are sincere to ourselves, and we have justified our own existence in this world. There are so many sadhakas, morning till evening they are working out some sort of a ritual, some sort of a meditation, some sort of a bhakti, some sort of reading. But one has to understand, what have we achieved? Where are we? As a Mother I would say, “My child, you have done so much in your seeking, but what have you found? Have you got the ultimate  reality? Have you got what is described in the scriptures?” For this song which is sung today is in Marathi – I wish they had sung something in Sanskrit, they are very good at Sanskrit singing also of Adi Shankaracharya and all that. Tomorrow they’ll do it. This song itself was written by Namadeva in the twelfth century [ie 1200s]; a poet who went later on to Punjab, where Nanak Sahib respected him very much and asked him that he should write in Punjabi language. [ed.: there is a confusion here with a later Namdev, a Maratha brahmin who was a contemporary of Nanak (1470-1530)]. He studied Punjabi language and has written such a thick book, and in the “Granth Sahib” there are many verses from there. He was an Read More …

6th Day of Navaratri, Recognize Me Campus, Cabella Ligure (Italy)

Navaratri Puja. Cabella (Italy), 13 October 1991 Today we have gathered here to do the Navaratri puja. There were nine times when the major incarnations of the Mother of this universe were manifested. They are manifested with a purpose. That purpose is to protect Her bhaktas, Her disciples, Her children. This was a binding love, She could not escape it. Mother’s love is binding, She cannot escape it. And She has to manifest it, work it out and give that protection to all her children.  This protection in the modern times has taken another form. In those days the evil was trying to harm, to destroy, the people who were righteous, who were bhaktas, who were doing good things, who wanted to lead a very religious life. So, to save them She incarnated. To protect them She incarnated. But they knew what was good, they knew what was wrong and they wanted to preserve their good life, their precious life. They didn’t care for money, they didn’t care for power, but just they wanted their life, means they wanted to be alive, to worship the Goddess. And when they were troubled or harmed or destroyed by these evil forces, She had to manifest. But in modern times it’s become very complicated as the modern times are complicated. First of all, in the mind, in the lifestyle, in the society of good human beings, righteous human beings, fear of the wrong has entered. Like, they are afraid, say, of their priests, Read More …

3rd Day of Navaratri: We can really expel our ego and our conditionings Palazzo Doria, Cabella Ligure (Italy)

The third day of Navaratri 1991, talk on October 10th, Cabella, (Italy) Yesterday, I told you about the way these all incarnations of the Guru principle came on this earth, and how they tried to establish dharma, this valence among human beings. As you know that in the nature, whatever elements we have got, all these elements have got eight valences in which, some maximum is eight. So, it could be two, three, four, could be five, six, seven, eight. So, whichever is -say there are three valences, or two. Then the two valences because they are less, they’ll combine with others. If they are more than four – supposing they are five, so they have three places. So, they’ll attract others which are the three, it’s like this. And this goes on in such a way that the atoms are not aware of it. They don’t know about it. Automatically it’s happening. Like carbon has four valences, so it can take four or give four. That’s how the life started, with the carbon because it had more possibility of attracting elements to itself. But all the things that are dead are not aware of the Divinity, about dharma. Their dharmas are built-in. So, if you take, say oxygen, it will behave like oxygen. If you take hydrogen, it will behave like hydrogen. They don’t change because they are not aware. They do not have awareness. Then comes the animal stage where they have nine valences. These also, their dharmas Read More …

Enlightened Person and the Attention Štvanice, Prague (Czech Republic)

Public Program Day 2. Prague (Czech Republic), 18 August 1991. [Hindi] They have done three songs, have they? One more … one more … [Hindi] [Yogi asks about taking of photos during Shri Mataji’s talk.] But when I am talking, one should not. You have to sing one song more, smaller one. Hamid, My spectacles. My spectacles. [Yogi explains to Shri Mataji that they have already spoken about chakras, etc.] I bow to all the seekers of truth. As I told you yesterday, that truth is what it is. It cannot be conceptualized, and cannot be felt at this human awareness. For that you have to become a subtler being that we call as the spirit. Today I’m going to tell you about the nature of spirit. Spirit is the reflection of the Father, the God Almighty. The seat of that is on top of fontanel bone area, but He is reflected in our heart; while kundalini is the reflection of the Holy Ghost, the Primordial Mother. So this spirit, when it is enlightened into our attention, our attention becomes active: in the sense that if you pay attention to something, it doesn’t act there, but on the contrary wherever you pay attention, that acts upon you. On the contrary an enlightened soul, even a glance of such a person can manifest peace, joy in the other person. The spirit, when it starts showing through your central nervous system, you develop a new dimension on your nerves, by which you Read More …

God Almighty and His Love Štvanice, Prague (Czech Republic)

Public Program Prague, Czech Republic, 17 August 1991 I bow to all the seekers of truth. At the very outset, I have to tell you that truth is what it is. We cannot conceptualize it or we cannot change it. Unfortunately, we cannot also know it with this human awareness. We have to become a subtler being to know the truth; that is, we have to be the spirit. For that one has to understand that it’s a evolutionary living process. It is a living happening within us which makes you the spirit, for which you cannot pay. You cannot put any effort, but it just works because you are seekers of truth. Whatever I am telling you, you have to listen to it with a open mind of a scientist. If it is proved to be the truth, you have to accept it as honest people, because it is for your benevolence and benevolence of the whole world. We see beautiful flowers here, but we take them for granted. We do not even think that they just come from small little seed. Look at our eyes, what a micro-camera it is, but we take it for granted. So, one must understand that there is some power which does this living work. So the first truth is that you are not this body, this mind, this ego or conditionings, but you are, but you are pure spirit. The second truth is that there is a subtle power of divine love 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 …

Sahasrara Puja: Realise Your Own Divinity Ischia (Italy)

“Realise Your Own Divinity” Sahasrara Day, Ischia, Italy Today we have assembled here to celebrate the Sahasrar Day which was opened in 1970 on this date. I find this beautiful canopy is like our Sahasrar. And [it’s] so very apt to have this beautiful arrangement for Sahasrar Day. We have to understand what happens when the Sahasrara opens. When the Kundalini passes through the five centres it enters into the area which we call as limbic area. This area is all surrounded by thousand nerves and when these nerves get enlightened they look like flames of VIBGYOR colours, seven colours, and very mildly, beautifully shining, emitting peace. But when the Kundalini starts emitting its vibration on the sides all these nerves get enlightened gradually and start moving on all directions, opening the Sahasrara and then the Kundalini emerges out through the fontanelle bone area, which we call as ‘Brahmarandhra’. ‘Randhra’ means the ‘hole’ and the ‘Brahma’ is the All-Pervading Power of God’s love. So it enters into the subtle energy, which is all-pervading, which we do not feel normally. But then the chaitanya, the vibrations, which are the part and parcel of this energy, All-Pervading Power, the Paramchaitanya, they start entering into our brain and showering their blessings in the limbic area they assemble. Now the limbic area is connected to all the area of the brain and also to the nerves. So it starts flowing onto the nerves giving you the new awareness of collective consciousness, called as ‘samuhik Read More …

Shri Ganesha Puja: The Innate Maryadas Canberra Ashram, Canberra (Australia)

Shri Ganesha Puja. Canberra (Australia). 14 April 1991. This will be the fifth puja in Australia, and I thought that this is the land of Ganesha, [so] we should have the Ganesha Puja. It is very important also, very helpful. We all should have Ganesha Puja, it’s very important. And so today there will be Shri Ganesha Puja. Have you got the hundred and eight names of Shri Ganesha? So we have now requested John Fisher to be your leader in Canberra. And he has agreed. I don’t know what more to tell you about Shri Ganesh, because really it is so important that we have to know the importance of Mooladhara Chakra. If you read the newspaper, just on the first page you find people going amok as far as their moral sense is concerned, absolutely. I mean, to us it is something so shocking, and perhaps I think people are possessed on their Mooladhara Chakra. The way they behave, one feels that there’s something gone wrong with them completely and they have no control over themselves; and just like mad people they are behaving. And all these problems that are coming, of these perversions, are due to this kind of a possession on the Mooladhara Chakra. One has to be very, very careful and respectful about it. I have already told so many things [about] how to keep it clean, how to respect it, and how to behave yourself. As you know, Shri Ganesha was created at the Read More …

Virata Puja: Appreciation Should Be Practiced and Informal talk Lake Road Ashram, Melbourne (Australia)

Virata Puja. Melbourne (Australia), 10 April 1991 Because of distances and also we had no ashram in Melbourne all these days, I found that the collectivity is not yet properly woven here and so I think best thing is, today, we must worship the Viraat. Viraat is the Primordial Father you can say, or the One who is in our brain, acts for our collectivity. As the Kundalini rises ultimately She ends up by piercing through the fontanel bone area. Before entering into that She enters into the Sahasrara. Sahasrara is the area which is surrounded by one thousand nerves and in the medical terms it is called as ‘limbic area’. Now one thousand nerves are all connected to the sixteen important nerves of the Vishuddhi. That’s why they say that Shri Krishna had sixteen thousand wives, that is, He had all His powers as His wives and I have all my powers as my children. So, when we are growing in our ascent, in our dhyana, we have to go to our Sahasrara. If the Sahasrara was not opened out we could not have done this en masse realisation. How it is connected! The collectivity is so connected with the present-day Sahaja Yoga. Before that it was just up to the Agnya Chakra but when it reaches the Sahasrara it enlightens all the nerves, and all the nerves look like flames which are very silent, beautifully coloured, in all VIBGYOR colours.  The appearance of these is so soothing, so Read More …

Shri Gauri Puja Auckland (New Zealand)

Shri Gauri Puja, Auckland (New Zealand), 8 April 1991. Gauri is the mother of Shri Ganesha and She produced Shri Ganesha because She was having a bath, and to protect Her chastity She created Shri Ganesha.In the same way, Kundalini is the Gauri and we have got Ganesha sitting in the Mooladhara Chakra. So we have Mooladhara as the abode of the Gauri, of Kundalini, and the protection of the Kundalini is done by Shri Ganesha. As you know, Shri Ganesha is the deity which is for our innocence. Only Shri Ganesha could be there in that position because as you know the pelvic plexus looks after all the excretory functions, and it is Shri Ganesha only who can really stay there without getting dirty by the surroundings – He is so pure; He is so innocent – while the Kundalini is the virgin, the virgin mother of Shri Ganesha. People have started talking against Mary by saying that there was something wrong, ”How could a virgin get a child?” because we do not understand it is God and in the area of God anything is possible. They’re above all these things and they can create anything and in any way, Ganesha had to be born out of a virgin because He was so pure. So Kundalini has to be supported by Shri Ganesh. If Shri Ganesha is weak, then Kundalini cannot be supported. Shri Ganesha has to support Her in the awakening part first of all. When the Kundalini Read More …

Bhavasagara Puja: Meditation will protect you Brisbane (Australia)

Shri Bhavasagara Puja, Brisbane (Australia), 6 April 1991. This is the first time we are having a puja in Brisbane, and I’m happy so many have come here from various places. You know that by puja, you excite the chakras within Me and you get lots of vibrations, and you achieve, suddenly, a height in your awareness. You do achieve that, but after some time they say that: “Mother, again we come down.” Also, they were saying that: “When we go to India we are all right, and when we come back, again we come down.”  Luckily, now we have an Ashram, which is a very good thing. To have an ashram itself is a, I must say, is a very, very positive thing because that is how Ganesha is established here. So Ashram is here for a collective living, but [a] collective living of spirituality. It’s not just living here, but it is of spirituality. And we have to know certain things about the discipline that we have to keep, [which] is very important. It’s not just a house where are,  some people have gathered together to live together, but it has to have a discipline. Then only you’ll be helped – because if you do not come to the Ashram with this idea that you are going there to ascend yourself, it will make no difference whether you stay in the house or you go in the Ashram. So there are two types of meditation, two types, where Read More …

Easter Puja: Purity, Morality, Children Bundilla Scout Camp, Sydney (Australia)

Easter Puja. Sydney (Australia), 31 March 1991. Today we are here to worship Christ as He was resurrected from dead. There are lots of theories about His death, but actually He resurrected Himself and then He went down to India and settled there with His Mother. After period of His resurrection is not described in any books, as such, but in one of the Puranas written about Shalivana, one of the kings of the dynasty I belong to, has met Christ in Kashmir and he asked Him, “What’s your name?” He said “My name is Issa.” And then he asked Him also that “from which country you come, which place?” He said, “I come from a country which is foreign to you and to Me and now I’m here in my own country.” That’s how He appreciated, I think, the Indian thing. And then He used to cure people there and his tomb is there and His Mother’s tomb also is there. So there are other stories also written by people who did not know much about Him. But whatever it is, what you find that Christ was very much impressed and was very much there to teach about morality, as in the Indian Scriptures, very strongly. For Him, morality was the most important thing, in life because, as you know, He was the incarnation of Shri Ganesha. So, for Him, Ganesha’s principle was extremely important and that He has expressed by saying that “In the ten commandments it is Read More …

Shri Mahavira Puja: Dead Spirits Perth (Australia)

Mahavira Puja. Perth (Australia), 28 March 1991. Today we are going to celebrate the birthday of Mahavira.Mahavira is the incarnation of Bhairavanath, or you call Him as Saint Michael. Now these two saints as you know one as the Gabriel, Hanumana, and another is Saint Michael, one is placed on the Pingala Nadi and another one, Saint Michael, on the Ida Nadi.So, Mahavira had to go through lots of search. Of course He was a angel, but came as human being and He had to find out the thing of the left side, and how the left side acts. It’s a very complicated thing, left side, is much more complicated than right side. On the left side we have also seven nadis, and these seven nadis are placed one after another. They are described in books and given different names to them. Now, these seven nadis that are on the left side, as you know, they cater to our past. Say for example, every moment becomes a past. Every present becomes a past. Then we have past of this lifetime, and also we have past of our previous lives. Then all the past is built in within us since our creation.So all the psychosomatic diseases, as you know, are only triggered by the entities that appear from the left side. For a person, supposing he is suffering, say, from liver trouble and suddenly he’s attacked from the left side, specially Mooladhara, or any left side, Left Nabhi, because Mooladhara is Read More …

Mahashivaratri Puja: Four Nadis of the Heart Chianciano Terme (Italy)

Mahashivaratri Puja. Chianciano Terme (Italy), 16 February 1991. Today we have assembled here to worship Sadashiva, which is reflected within us as Shiva, as the spirit. He is reflected in our heart, and as you have seen that the goal of our life was to achieve this state of spirit. The other day I was reading some books how it was done, this Self-realization, to know the spirit, and how people were tortured. First of all they’re asked to somehow or other deny, defy and condemn their body. Now, if the body wants to have comfort, then it was said that first try to sleep on the carpet, not on the bed. Then still, it’s not enough; then from the carpet you go to a mat – still it’s not enough. Then from that maybe, you move down to the Mother Earth, sleep on the Mother Earth. Still if the body is not alright  then you start sleeping on the stone. But still the Himalayas are far away, because Shiva resides in Kailasha. So you go to Himalayas and sleep on the ice. This was the minimum requirement. Then it was said that you are fond of good food, you want to have sumptuous food, you eat a lot, alright ; so you deny everything that you like, to begin with, all that you like. For example, Italians cannot eat pasta! Then deny that. But that’s not sufficient. After that, you start eating things which are very bitter. As in Read More …

10th Day of Navaratri, The deities are watching you Geneva (Switzerland)

Navaratri Puja, “The deities are watching you”. Arzier, Geneva (Switzerland), 23 September 1990. According to the calendar, this year there are ten days of Navaratri, not of nine. Nine are the days, in the night, when the Goddess had to fight the demons and to save Her children from the effects of negativity. On one side She was ocean of love and compassion, and on the other side She was protecting them like a tigress; because the times were such that nobody could meditate, nobody could take the name of God, nobody could think even of Self-Realisation. But those who are sitting here today, you have been there also in those days, and you were all saved for today, for this day, so that you can achieve your Self-Realisation. The form of the Goddess in those days was not maya swarupi. She was in Her real form and that created a great awe, even among the disciples. So the question of giving them Self-Realisation was not there. First of all they were to be saved. So, like nine months the mother has to keep the child in her womb, for these nine months or you can say nine yugas, nine times, you all have been saved properly, and on the tenth month you are given your birth. Also this birth is always after seven days of nine months. So we had to wait for some time till it matures. Now the tenth Navaratri today is to celebrate actually the Adi Read More …

Shri Mahakali Puja: Purity and Collectivity Centre Culturel Thierry Le Luron, Le Raincy (France)

Shri Mahakali puja, “Collectivity & Purity”. Le Raincy (France), 12 September 1990. We have had Bhairava puja in Belgium and now I thought today let us have Mahakali puja because yesterday’s experience, last night’s experience, was the work of Mahakali. She has a double role all the time, she is at two extremes. On one side, she is full of joy, giver of joy, she’s very happy when she sees her disciples are joyous. Joy is her own quality, is her energy. And yesterday you must have been amazed to see so many middle-aged ladies of France smiling and laughing. I had never seen them smiling! It’s very surprising how they were so joyous and so very happy. And this is the energy of Mahakali, that gives you all that joy after Realisation, and the joy you enjoy among yourselves. All these are the qualities of Mahakali. And when they will read out the names of Mahakali you will know how her powers manifest in Sahaja Yoga and how it has helped you all to get drenched into the ocean of joy. To begin with, I have to tell you one thing that Mahakali puja, when you are doing, you have to feel a joy within yourself, and joy from other Sahaja Yogis. If you cannot feel that, that means you are not yet grown and there’s some problem, maybe with your parents, maybe with your children, maybe your family, with your country, whatever it is. But there’s some sort Read More …

Shri Hanumana Puja: Electromagnetic Force Schwetzingen, Schwetzingen Palace (Germany)

Shri Hanumana Puja. Frankfurt (Germany), 31 August 1990. You can sit here also, some of you, it’s good… I think you can come here, there is room. Some of you can move here so that they can also come here, so it won’t be a problem. You sit in front here. They are better, you see. Good. Open this door, would be all right. It’s all right, you can open the door if you like. It’s all right. Better open – these doors cannot be opened? They don’t open? Oh, my God! You need a tall person. You need Hanumana! Take His name and He’ll open! Keep a chair in front of that. Today we have come here to do Hanumana’s Puja. Shri Hanumana is a great character in our being and He runs all the way from Swadishthana to your brain and He supplies all the necessary guidance we need in our futuristic planning or in our mental activities. He gives us guidance and protection. As you know that Germany is a place where people are very active, very right-sided, use their brain too much and they are very machine-oriented also. It is very surprising how a deity like Shri Hanumana, who is an eternal child, because He was like a monkey. His head was that of a monkey, if not of an elephant. So He was an eternal child and He was the one who was used to run the right side of human beings. He was told Read More …

Shri Mahasaraswati Puja: Vishnumaya a very fiery personality (Afternoon) Lions Bay, Ashram in Lions Bay (Canada)

Shri Mahasaraswati Puja. Vancouver (Canada), 11 August 1990. When they asked Me what puja we should have in Vancouver, I had heard about this ashram that it is placed in very beautiful surroundings of nature and, as nature is being created by the power of Saraswati, I thought best would be to have the Puja of Saraswati here. Another thing is that when people live in nature, they become extremely creative, their delicate feelings are preserved and they are never in a rush; or they are not what we can call too much modernized, because nature soothes them down. So also the creativity of Saraswati adds to artist, and I knew that there must have been many artist in this country created since long. The Canada as such I feel is the Hamsa Chakra of the Vishuddhi, but the power of Saraswati becomes Mahasaraswati when it is manifested by the Mahabrahmadeva which is called as Hiranyagarbha. For that She has to cross through the Hamsa. She crosses through Hamsa and becomes the Vishnumaya Shakti. I mean She is the Vishnumaya Shakti. So Saraswati becomes the Vishnumaya. She crosses at two points – one at Hamsa and another at Vishuddhi – so She is the Sister of Shri Krishna. So Saraswati was born as the Sister of Shri Krishna, and when Krishna’s mama name whose was, uncle was Kamsa, he came to kill Her, She just rose into the sky and became the lightning, and She declared the coming of Shri Read More …

Guru Puja: Detachment, Silence, Faith Avignon (France)

Guru puja. Avignon (France), 8 July 1990. In Sahaja Yoga the Guru puja has a very different significance from any other guru puja. When you worship your Guru you are also worshiping the Guru within you. This is not in any other guru-disciple system because, in you, the Guru, the Master has been awakened. And so, when you are worshipping your Guru, then this Master within you is also worshipped, you respect it, you glorify it, you awaken it, and you manifest it. This we have to realise that – in Sahaja Yoga – if you are a Sahaja Yogi. Now, the quality of Guru, first and foremost, is that he makes you meet God: means he raises the Kundalini and establish the relation between the All-pervading Power. And as your Guru is Adi Shakti, you make that person meet, also, the Adi Shakti. So you have a double advantage that, at the same time, when you give them Realisation, not only that you make them feel the union with the Divine Power, but you can make them meet the Divinity Itself, the source of Divine Power. So your responsibility, as Sahaja Yogis, is very great because in you is there is the Guru. Now in our mantras we say that, “Mother, I am my own Guru.” But, saying that, do we realise that: if I am my own Guru, this “I” and “my Guru,” between the two, what have I achieved? Where am I? Can I guide myself? Have Read More …

Birthday Puja: Sincerity Curzon Hall, Sydney (Australia)

Puja for the 67° Birthday, Sydney (Australia), 21 March 1990. What enthusiasm all over the world! The whole of Sydney, I think, has been drenched of all their flowers. And such nice things to say, the cards and the letters and the beautiful poems, the children are singing beautifully. Words fail to express the feelings of such jubilation and such sincere feeling of happiness. You needed a Mother to look after you, to care for you and to be able to transform you with lot of wisdom. So every birthday I find that Sahaja Yogis are also expanding their hearts and realizing that they are no more drops but they are part and parcel of the ocean and that the ocean itself is going to strengthen them and look after them. It’s the ocean that is going to nourish them. And the same ocean is going to guide them. So the connection between a drop and an ocean has to be fully established. So the limitations of a drop have to be absolutely dissolved into the greatness of the ocean. With care and with nice things to say we can improve the depth of the collectivity, and with sincere desire to be collective. The desire to be collective has to be very sincere.So, this expanse of your being will start.The first thing is needed: a sincerity to yourself. Of course, because we are coming from a drop status, from a drop, a little limited drop, from that phase, so we Read More …

Devi Puja: In 10 years we can change the whole world & Weddings Announcements Brahmapuri (India)

Brahmapuri Puja. Brahmapuri (India), 30 December 1989. [English Transcript] I’m sorry what has happened yesterday, but I think the war has begun between the evil and good, and after all the good prevails. In these modern times, evil used to prevail on good but now, in this Krita Yuga, the evil will be completely conquered by good, and not only that, but good will spread all over. The evil has the capacity to go to extremes and then to fall out of the evolutionary process completely. Because they are blind they cannot see the good that’s why they are evil. If they could see the good they would give up their evil. In our country which is a country of yoga, especially Maharastra which is the country of the saints, I was amazed to hear what people are up to. One of the real source of this nonsense seems to be Rajneesh, the horrible fellow, because he has made an exhibition here absolutely denouncing all the deities and saying all kinds of dirty things, and I think the chief minister of this place is also hand in glove with him and they are all trying to prove that there is no God, there is no spirituality. They want to establish that science is everything. We have no heritage of science in India, we have the heritage of spirituality. I mean nobody is known as such a great scientist in this country. Nobody has made any special inventions and the way Read More …

Shri Bhairavnath Puja: Bhairava protects the Left Side Garlate (Italy)

Shri Bhairavanath puja. Garlate ashram, Lecco (Italy), 6 August 1989. Today, we have gathered here to do puja to Bhairavanath. I think we have not understood the significance of Bhairavanath who runs up and down on the Ida Nadi. Ida Nadi is the nadi of Chandrama, is of the moon. So this is a channel for us to cool down. So the work of Bhairavanath ji is to cool us down. For example, people have a hot temper with their ego, with their liver, whatever it is, and if a person is in a big temper, then Bhairavanath plays tricks on that person to cool him down. He organizes everything under his own control with ganas’ help, with Ganapati’s help, to cool down your temperament, to give you a balance. So, if somebody is a very hot-tempered person and he crosses all the limits of his temper, then somehow or other, Bhairavanath will organise, also with the help of Hanumana, to show that this stupidity of anger is no good. So, for example, people who are depressed or who become left-sided, Hanumana tries to help them to come out of it, no doubt, but also Bhairavanath helps them very much more to come out of it. Now a person who is left-sided cannot be collective. It is very difficult for a person who is very left-sided, who is all the time feeling very sad, unhappy and worried, cannot enjoy the fun of collectivity. While a hot-tempered person, a right-sided person, Read More …

Guru Puja: Creativity Lago di Braies (Italy)

Guru Puja. Lago Di Braie (Italy), 23 July 1989. Today we have had to spend a little more time than normal to get to the stage where we could really worship the Guru. When we worship our Guru, we have to know actually we are trying to awaken the Guru Principle within ourselves. It’s not only that you are here to worship your Guru. You may worship many-a-times, maybe the vibrations would flow, Maybe that you might get filled with that and you feel elevated, nourished. But this nourishment has to be retained within ourselves, So always remember then, whenever you are worshipping any principle outside, you are trying to worship your own principle within yourself. Within us as you know, in all of us there lies the principle of Guru. It’s very interesting to notice the Guru Principle being drawn beautifully round the Nabhi Chakra. We never see any chakras connected with the Guru Principle. You see Nabhi, and around is the Bhavasagara. So this Bhavasagara which is the Ocean of Illusion cannot be the Guru. So there are hidden chakras within this Bhavasagara within us, which are to be awakened and to be brought to light, to be manifested. As you can see that the limits of this principle are done by the movement of the Swadishthana Chakra. Swadishthan is the chakra which gives you, first and foremost thing, is the creativity. A person who is a guru has to be creative by nature. If you are not Read More …

Paramchaitanya Puja Taufkirchen (Germany)

Paramchaitanya Puja. Taufkirchen (Germany), 19 July 1989. [A noise is made by the loudspeaker. Babies start crying.] Shri Mataji: I think better take the children out for a while. Just it would be better. Hello, hello, hello! I think better take them out for a while. They didn’t like. Stops. [Babies suddenly stop crying.] [Laughter. Shri Mataji laughs.] A question was asked to Me, “What puja we are going to have today?” and I kept it a secret. Today, we should worship the Paramachaitanya, the All-pervading Power of God’s love. We are aware that Paramachaitanya does everything. At least mentally we know that everything is worked out by the grace of Paramachaitanya, which is the power of the Adi Shakti. But still, it is not so much in our heart, so much in our attention. We can consider Paramachaitanya like a ocean, like a ocean which contains everything within itself. Everything, all the working, everything is within its own limits. So it cannot be compared with anyone thing. You cannot compare it. Now if you see the sun, then from the sun the rays have to come out to work it. If you see somebody, say, a person who has an authority, he has to assert that power outside. So within himself he doesn’t work it out. Say, for example, if there’s a seed and inside the seed only, the tree grows and the fruits come out, and then they are sold and people eat it; and everything is inside Read More …

Shri Radha Krishna Puja: The importance of friendship La Belle Étoile, La Rochette (France)

Shri Radha Krishna Puja, “The Importance of Friendship”, Melun (France), 9 July 1989. I am really over-delighted that in France we have so many visitors as well as French Sahaja Yogis for this Puja. That shows the collectivity, the collectivity which attracts all of you from all over the places, and that you try to enjoy that collectivity. But the basis of collectivity, the foundation of collectivity is very deep; and the deep understanding can only tell you that the basis of collectivity is detached love. Love is the only way. It’s not possible to have collectivity unless and until you have detached love. French have been good at so many types of love that they have been talking about; and they have written books after books, novels after novels and have created lots of romantic and unromantic and all kinds of atmospheres to talk of love. But the pure love, as we understand in Sahaja Yoga, is to be now expressed by Sahaja Yogis among themselves. After all, we are all human beings made by one God. And we are all Sahaja Yogis created by one Mother. So there should be no misunderstanding between us of any kind. But we must know what sometimes makes us a little different. If we can understand the problems that we face, then it would be much easier for us to see why our love becomes so attached and not so detached. It starts becoming smaller and smaller, then a person just starts Read More …

Shri Ganesha Puja: Christ and Christianity Bogota (Colombia)

Shri Ganesha Puja. Bogota (Colombia), 26 June 1989. Today I would like to tell you about Christ and Christianity because that’s very important, because this country is very Catholic. And even if you are Protestants or Catholics, the church has not fulfilled what Christ wanted them to do, which you can see very clearly.      If you read the Bible, you’ll find that Christ has been described as the Son of Mother Mary, born out of immaculate conception.      But they have not been able to really, profoundly, accept that.      The superficial way they are using Christ to make money, make properties, build churches.      And because they cannot explain anything, they always say that it is a mystery. That Christ was born of an immaculate Mother – “Immaculata” – with immaculate conception, according to them is a mystery.  Also, they cannot explain how Christ walked on the water.      Because they have not been able to find out the spiritual life, which was the idea of Christ. And they created such a materialistic world.  Moreover, the amount of money and wealth the Vatican has, one can’t understand how there is so much poverty in the Catholic nations.      They have not tried to solve the problem of poverty at all.      In India, they converted people by giving them some loaf of bread or something like that. And very low-level people who were just, we can say primitive, they converted them. Whether they are Protestants or they are Catholics, they are the two sides of Read More …

Shri Devi Puja: The Essence of Self Respect Carla's House, Istanbul (Turkey)

Shri Devi Puja, “The Essence of Self-respect”. Istanbul (Turkey), 27 May 1989. I’ve been desiring all the time that I should go to Turkey or Tunisia where there could be an entry into the Islamic world, because they have been promised that they will be resurrected, and that resurrection has to take place. For that I have to venture and give them their resurrection which is promised by Mohammed Sahib, I mean that’s My duty; and not only duty, but I’m bound by it, that I have to tell them about their resurrection and to save them. They deserve it, no doubt. When all the religions prospered in a very funny manner, I would say, separately, everyone thinking they are the best, the chosen ones, the highest ones, the greatest ones, believing in themselves, they started going down and down and down. The reason is, there is no respect for each other. And the respect is not there because there is no respect for oneself. If you respect yourself, you respect others also; but when you have no respect for yourself, you cannot respect others; but you should bombastically say that “I’m this, I’m that, I’m that” – any religion. Then your ego works, and ego makes you a person who does not know about yourself. If somebody has respect for oneself, he will never push forward, he will never try to be something prominent, he’ll never try to show off. On the contrary such a person would be hesitant Read More …

Shri Hanumana Puja: You Are All Angels Butlins Grand Hotel, Margate (England)

Shri Hanumana Puja. Margate (UK), 23 April 1989. It is such a joy today, and the whole atmosphere seems to be bubbling with it, as if the angels are singing.  And the speciality of Hanumana was that He was an angel. Angels are born like angels.  They are angels, and they are not human beings.  They’re born with the angelic qualities. But now, you all have become angels from the human beings. It’s a very great achievement of Sahaja Yoga. The qualities that are born with the angels are seen from their very childhood. So in the left side we have ganas, on the right side we have angels. And translated in Sanskrit language or in any Indian language as devdhoot – means they are the ambassadors of gods. So now you are the same, you are all angels now. Only thing you are not aware that you are angels while they were aware from their childhood. If you know that you are angels, all your qualities will start shining through, and you’ll be amazed that the quality of standing by the truth at any cost is so easily managed for you, because you have been given the right, you have been given the special blessings, the special protection from the Divine that if you stand for the right, and if you stand for the righteous, and if you stand for the truth, all kinds of help to protect you will be given. Angels are aware of this, they’re sure Read More …

Shri Vishnumaya Puja: Cure That Left Vishuddhi Shudy Camps Park, Shudy Camps (England)

“Cure that Left Vishuddhi” Shri Vishnumaya puja. Shudy Camps (England), 20 August 1988. This was least expected that we’ll have a Puja here or we’ll have any program of this kind. But I think something was left out of the whole program of such a fast one as you know I had to do, going from London to Frankfurt to America to Bogota, to be back, then Andorra and all these places still, I thought, now it is finished. And I came here in London I learned that there was one Puja was not done it is left Vishuddhi, and that coincides with this Raksha Bandhan because it is the sister relationship and brother relationship. So in the history, if you go, Shri Krishna was born the day his sister was born, and this Vishnumaya was transferred from, transformed I should say, into a lightning later on, but She was the one who announced the existence of Shri Krishna at that time – that He is born and He is living, He is in the present. This is the job of the left Vishuddhi, of the lightning, and you have seen that whenever I am going to any place, or I will be giving a program or something, just before that, the lightning, the thunder, all this appears in the sky, you see, to show that announcement. So it is one of the things that is used for announcement. To make it more practical and understanding is that we use Read More …

Shri Fatima Puja: The principle of the Left Nabhi Saint-George (Switzerland)

Shri Fatima Puja, St Georges, Switzerland, 14 August 1988. Today we are going to have the puja of Fatimabi, who was the symbol of Gruhalakshmi, and so we are going to have the puja of the Gruhalakshmi principle within us. As the housewife has to finish every work, everything in the household, and then she goes for a bath, in the same way this morning, I had to do lots of things and then I could come for your puja, because today the housewife’s jobs were many. So, I had to finish them like a good housewife. Now, the principle of Gruhalakshmi has been evolved and developed by the Divine, is not a human being’s creation and as you know it resides in the left Nabhi. The Gruhalakshmi is the one that is represented in the life of Fatima who was the daughter of Mohammed Sahab. Now She is always born in a relationship to a Guru, which is of virginity, of purity. So, She comes as a sister or She comes as a daughter. Now the beauty of Fatima’s life is, that after the death of Mohammed Sahab, as usual, there were fanatic people who thought they can take the religion into their hands and can make it a very fanatic thing and the attention was not paid so much towards the ascent of the person. Even Mohammed Sahab has described his son in law in many ways. And He is the only one – or there is another Read More …

Shri Krishna Puja: The State of Witnessing Como (Italy)

Shri Krishna Puja. Garlate, Como (Italy), 6 August 1988. Today we have gathered here to worship Shri Krishna. We must understand the significance of Shri Krishna’s advent on the Vishuddhi chakra. As you know very well, except for once or twice, Shri Brahmadeva has taken His incarnation. Also once Shri Ganesha has taken His birth as Lord Jesus Christ. But Vishnu tattwa, the principle of Vishnu, has taken many a times birth on this earth, as the Goddess had to take many-a-times Her birth. They had to work together many-a-times and with the principle of Vishnu, the principle of Mahalakshmi has acted to help the ascent of the people. So the principle of Vishnu is for your ascent, for the evolutionary process of human beings. Through this advent and through the power of Mahalakshmi, we have become human beings from amoeba stage. This is a spontaneous working for us, but for the principle of Vishnu, He had to go through various incarnations to evolve. As you know there have been incarnations of Shri Vishnu as a fish to begin with and went on till it came to the state of Shri Krishna, where they say that He has become complete. But one has to realize that He works on our central nervous system, He builds our central nervous system. Through our evolutionary process our central nervous system has been built up. And this central nervous system has given us all the human awareness that we have. Otherwise we would have Read More …

Shri Hamsa Swamini puja and two talks Grafenaschau (Germany)

Shri Hamsa Swamini Puja, Grafenaschau (Germany), 10 July 1988. Today we have decided to have a Hamsa Puja in Germany. We have never yet paid much attention to this center of Hamsa, which is, I think, very important for the Western world, rather than for the Indian or the Eastern. The reason is, at the Hamsa chakra, part of the Ida and Pingala come out and manifest – means the expression of Ida and Pingala is given through the Hamsa chakra. So this Hamsa chakra is the one that, as if has not gone up to the Agnya, but is holding on certain threads or certain parts of the Ida and Pingala. And they start flowing through your nose, expressing through your eyes, from your mouth and from your forehead. So you know that Vishuddhi chakra has got sixteen petals which look after the eyes, nose, throat, tongue, teeth. But the expression part of it comes through the Hamsa chakra, of all these. So it’s a very, very important thing in a Western mind, to understand Hamsa chakra. There’s a beautiful couplet about this in Sanskrit, ““Hamsah shvetah, bakah shvetah. kah bhedah hamsa bakayo? Nira-kshira viveketu. Hamsah hamsah, bakah bakah.” Meaning ‘The crane and the swan, both are white. And what makes a difference between the two? If you mix the water and the milk together the hamsa (swan) will just suck in the milk. So it can discriminate between the water and the milk while the bakha, means the crane, cannot’. It’s 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 …

Shri Ekadasha Rudra Puja: Ekadasha Principle is built-in the Void Moedling (Austria)

Shri Ekadasha Rudra puja, Moedling (Austria), 8 June 1988. Today is a very important day in the history of spirituality. The Ekadasha Rudra Incarnation has been prophesised by every prophet, that the Ekadasha Avatara will be coming and it will destroy all the negativity, all the anti-God activities. Ekadasha Principle actually is built-in [the] Void because when the saints wanted to cross the ocean of illusion through their meditation they were hindered, troubled, tortured, and slaughtered by negative forces. These negative forces came up through the failings of human beings. When human beings failed they saw other people who were so much better than them and they saw that they are nowhere compared to many other human beings, or sometimes out of anger and temper the villainous temperament grew into them and then it formed this anti-God negativity in the Void. So Void has given actually the villainy to come into form. As you see, in Sahaja Yoga, we must have seen it many a times that, when you go to a wrong guru or to a wrong person or you do unauthorised worshipping your Left Void catches. So in the Left Void all those destructive forces acted. Also, in the process of evolution, there were many plants, animals who were destroyed because they were not in the centre, because they were egoistical, some were cunning, some were too big, some were too small and they were all thrown out and when they were thrown out they felt that they Read More …

The Myth of Leadership Rome (Italy)

“The Myth Of Leadership” May 9, 1988 Now this one is a praise of Mahalakshmi tattwa, Mahalakshmi principle. And as you know that, Lakshmi principle is the power of Shri Vishnu, which first establishes within us when we start paying attention to dharmic material life, dharmic financial life and dharmic family life. After that, seeking starts, seeking into higher realms: there it is manifested by the Mahalakshmi principle within us. That’s why in affluent countries people start seeking; they may go wrong, that’s different. In a person this exists, but the manifestation starts when you are completely satisfied with your material side, not with Sahaj Yog. In Sahaj Yoga it manifests and acts.  So the central path of Mahalakshmi starts opening up, so rises above your nabhi chakra, above, and goes up to your Sahasrara and pierces through it. In the Sahasrara also it is the Vishnu tattwa [that] becomes the Viraata — it’s only one principle. It manifests itself in the Sahasrara and you become aware of collective consciousness, you become knowledgeable and you know the truth. It’s through the rising of the Kundalini. Now here, they are only praising the middle path, that’s the Mahalakshmi. So here you are singing to me, to the Mahalakshmi principle of mine. But when it reaches the Sahasrara, in Sahasrara it become the Mahamaya. In the Sahasrara, it gets the power of the Mahamaya, by which it has a thousand facets and it puts you into illusions to test you and to Read More …

Sahasrara Puja: How it was decided Fregene (Italy)

Sahasrara Puja, “How it was decided”. Fregene (Italy), 8 May 1988. Today is the nineteenth Sahasrara day, if you count the first one, the day the Sahasrara was opened. I have to tell you the story about the Sahasrara day, about which it was decided, long time back, before I incarnated. They had a big meeting in the heavens, all the thirty-five crores (350 million) of gods, the deities were there present to decide what is to be done. This is the ultimate that we have to do to human beings, to open their Sahasrara, to open their awareness to the spirit, to the real knowledge of the divine, to remove the darkness of ignorance, and it had to be spontaneously because it has to work the living force of God. Also it had to be very quick. So all the Gods requested that now, I, the Adi Shakti has to take the birth. They all tried their best. They did whatever was possible; the saints were made by them but very few. They incarnated and people made religions out of them which were perverted and brought them a bad name. No reality in those religions. These religions were money oriented or power oriented. There was no divine force working, actually it was all anti-divine. How to now turn human beings away from these superficial religions, these perverted paths of destruction? How to tell them about all these established organisations? For ages they have been ruling, making money, making power. Read More …

Makar Sankranti Puja Mumbai (India)

Makar Sankranti – Shri Surya Puja. India Tour, Bombay (India), 10 January 1988. It is a very unique opportunity, I think, for Me to meet you again in Bombay when you are all leaving this country, and this kind of a special type of a puja that we are having today. This is the puja done to the sun, and is called as Makar Sankrant. “Makar” is the tropic of Capricorn, Capricorn is Makar. So now the sun is moving from the tropic of Capricorn towards the tropic of Cancer, and is always a fixed date because it’s a, it has something to do with the sun. This is the only date which is fixed in the Indian calendar, because they have to deal with the sun. But this time, I don’t know why, what has happened that they have put it on the fifteenth of this month – it’s always the fourteenth. Now today is, they are changing, I would say that the seasons are going to be changed. We’ve got six months when this moves, sun moves towards the southern hemisphere and makes it warm, and it comes to the northern hemisphere from tomorrow. So today is the last day, which we say that is the day which is the coldest day, according to Indian understanding. After this the heat will start growing and all the – we can do anything that is auspicious, any auspicious things can be done after this puja is over, during the summer-time. Read More …

Talk: Being Bandhamukta – A free personality and Evening Program Ganapatipule (India)

Ganapatipule Seminar, India Tour. Ganapatipule (India), 5 January 1988. From yesterday’s programme, and all these days, you must have realised that to get your Kundalini working out, to get Her rush towards the Sahasrara and to widen your Sushumna Nadi it is not necessary that you should sit for meditation for three to five hours. Of course, you must meditate for a short time because that is at a point where you are alone, one with your God. But otherwise in the collective, when you merge into it, then the Kundalini rises the same way. It’s a very discreet way of understanding what happens. In the collective when you are, you compensate each other, complement each other, and a subtler side of the cosmos starts manifesting in you. Then if you could really merge there’s a word ’emerge’ in Sanskrit language or in Marathi language is very good is ‘ramamaana’. I don’t think “merging with joy” but there is no ‘with’ you see, merging into joy. So if you can merge into the joy of anything that is sahaj you can become a meditative personality, you can achieve that meditative mood within yourself. With that mood, with that force, new subtler dimensions start breaking out within you. Your different kind of conditionings which are like shackles, binding you down, just open out and you become a free person – bandhamukta. With that force everything breaks: your ego breaks, your conditioning breaks and you become one with the joy of life, Read More …

Diwali Puja: Power of Innocence, Meaning of Nine of The Lakshmis Lecco (Italy)

Diwali Puja, “Power of Innocence”. Lecco (Italy), 25 October 1987. First – we bow to Shri Ganesha because Shri Ganesha is the source of innocence within us. So actually we bow to innocence within us. And this innocence is the one [that] gives you the enlightenment. As I told you yesterday the light has innocence, but this is innocent without knowledge. But your light is innocent with knowledge. We always think that the people who have got knowledge can never be innocent, can never be simple. And the idea we have got about innocence is that an innocent person is always deceived, can be befooled – and can be always taken for granted. But innocence is a power; it is a power which protects you, which gives you light of knowledge. Knowledge that we have in the worldly sense is how to exploit others, how to cheat others, how to make money out of them, how to make fun of others, how to look down upon others. But the light of innocence is the light by which you know that love is the highest thing. And it teaches you how to love others, how to care for others, how to be gentle about others. It also gives you the light within. It’s just the other way round of this Avidya that we have in this world. Just the other way round. The Avidya outside teaches us competition, how to put the other person down. Because it has fear, it is Read More …

Shri Mahakali Puja: The Culture Of The Spirit Munich, Blutenburg Castle (Germany)

Shri Mahakali Puja. Blutenburg, Munich (Germany), 16 October 1987. I was told that we have a very beautiful place for this puja and I was amazed how everything is working out so beautifully for all of you. You are all very lucky people I must say. Moreover that this place was called as the “fort of flowers” and now it was called as a “fort of blood”, bloody fort. But I think with all these flowers it should become the “fort of flowers” again. It’s a very, very beautiful place you have come to. The vibrations are also very good here. I’ve been always wondering why Germany was called as Germany. Germ, germ means sprouting. Any germ of anything means the sprouting of it. Germinate means to sprout. The sprouting of Sahaja Yoga as I’ve told you many a times before once taken by Germans will be reaching its epitome, its highest point. We have had lots of ups and downs, doesn’t matter. It’s a difficult place and now we have started really the germination in a proper way. Yesterday I saw the whole sky was filled with color and light. As you know that vibrations have light. It’s very light flickering, very small light, each particle of vibration has and you can see that. But when there are too many, then they can be caught up by your cameras. But yesterday I think the clouds got vibrated. And is a very great thing to get the clouds vibrated. If Read More …

Shri Rama Puja: Dassera Day Les Avants (Switzerland)

Shri Rama Puja – Les Avants (Switzerland), 4 October 1987 Today we are celebrating in Switzerland the coronation of Shri Rama on Dassera Day. Many things happened on Dassera Day. The most important was that Shri Rama was coronated as a king on this day. He also killed Ravana on this day. Many may say that how can it be He killed Ravana and He was coronated on the same date? In those days in India, we had supersonic aeroplanes and, is a fact, and the aeroplane’s name was Pushpak, meaning the flower. It was called as Pushpak and it has a tremendous speed. So after killing Ravana He came to Ayodhya with His wife and that was the day He was crowned. On the ninth day, He worshiped the Goddess to get strength, Shakti, for his weapons, and the tenth day He killed Ravana. So, you can imagine how much advanced people were there at the time of Shri Rama and His kingdom. The reason was the king was an incarnation; also He was a benevolent king as described by Socrates. Shri Rama’s story is very interesting throughout and we have now a beautiful series about Him done by our television in India, which is sold for a very good price, maybe we might be able to present you all with one when you come there. But the story of Rama they say was written before He was born. Even before there was any inkling of it; the seer, Read More …

Shri Vishnumaya Puja: She has created a big maya YWCA Camp, Pawling (United States)

Shri Vishnumaya Puja, New York (USA), 9 August 1987. Today we have assembled here to do the puja of Vishnumaya. Vishnumaya is created through human effort, also. As you see the clouds, when they rub against each other, then the electricity is created. So first the clouds have to be created. The sun acts on the sea. See how many chakras come into play! Sea is the Void, and the sun acts on the sea. Also the moon acts on the sea. As a result of that, clouds are created. This electricity is not created in the ocean – that would create problems. Is created in the sky so that everybody can see it, can hear it. They see it first and hear it later. It’s all well organised, well calculated – that is Vishnumaya. But it was created, also, with some understanding by human beings on this Earth. First of all they saw the two clouds rubbing each other. So in the primitive stage, human beings tried to rub two material things to create electricity. So two material things, that is two parts of matter, when rubbed created the electricity. It’s very significant to see: matter can be used to create electricity! The spark of the electricity comes from the matter. Without matter, they could not have started cooking the food. So how it has helped the Void. First from the ocean, it went into the sky, gave the message to the people to create the electricity. See the Read More …
