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

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

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

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

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

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

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 …

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 …

The Truth Has Two Sides Geneva (Switzerland)

Geneva Public programme 11th June 1985 ‘The Truth has Two Sides’  I bow to all the seekers of truth. But the truth has two sides: the illusion that we see can look like truth, and the essence of the illusion also may appear to be truth. But the other side is absolute and has to be felt, has to be experienced on your central nervous system. It’s not a mental projection that we can think of, nor emotional imagination, but truth is what it is, it cannot be changed. It cannot compromise. We have to humble down ourselves to know the truth. Now we have discovered so many things in the science, by humility that we have not known so far. But whatever is known outside, like the tree, must have roots, and these roots are not known if you are just looking at the tree. And when somebody talks about the roots, we get shaken up because we have had no knowledge of it before. Thus we are conditioned to only see the tree, and we cannot make our mind understand that there must be some roots to it. So we can say that people have advanced in science quite a lot, and have progressed and have become developed countries. But they do not know, if they do not seek their roots they will be completely destroyed. Now when I’m before you, one should not in any way feel that I’m here to offend you, but I’ve come here Read More …

Devi Puja: Steady Yourself San Diego (United States)

Devi Puja. San Diego, California (USA), 31 May 1985. May God bless you.Please be seated. (Just to record, hmm?)It’s such a pleasure to be in the ashram in San Diego. And it’s such a beautiful place, so much expressing the love of God, the Divine, the way it wants to help you at every step. If you want to have an ashram, if you want to have a proper place, you want to look after your children well, you want to do God’s work, everything is looked after, everything has to be worked out. If it is not worked out, then how will you do your work? So, it all works out. And it’s so obvious, the way we have different ashrams, such comfortable places at a very reasonable amount that we can afford, that we can live happily together. This is the abode created by love for you. So, the first thing we have to remember, that among ourselves we should have complete love. [Marathi] We should not trust people who try to divide us, who try to give us wrong ideas. It’s very easy to make out a person who is a Sahaja yogi from the heart. It’s very easy to make out. You have to be a little more sensitive and you’ll find out such a person very easily. Whatever may be the cunning, it can be discovered. Nobody can act against God now, because everything will be discovered and will be found out. But we have Read More …

Birthday Puja: Our maryadas Kew Ashram, Melbourne (Australia)

Birthday Puja. Melbourne (Australia), 17 March 1985. I am very joyous today to see all of you celebrating my birthday as well as having the national programme same day. It’s a good combination we have in the month of March. It’s regarded as springtime in India – madhumas (मधुमास). That’s what you sing, madhumas. And as you know 21st March is the equinox, so it is a balance and also the centre of all the signs you have in the horoscope. So many centres I had to achieve and also I was born on the Tropic of Cancer as you are on the Tropic of Capricorn, and Ayers Rock is on the Tropic of Capricorn – just in the centre. So, so many combinations had to be worked out. So the principle of ascent is to be in the centre, to be in the balance, to be in the maryadas of the centre, to be in the boundaries of the centre, is the principle. So what happens when we do not keep to the boundaries, to the maryadas? Then we get caught up. If we keep to maryadas we can never be caught up. Many people say, “Why have the maryadas?” Say we have the maryada, the boundaries of this beautiful ashram here and somebody is attacking you from all the sides, on all the sides of the void, so if you go out of the void you get caught up. That’s why you have to keep to the boundaries. Read More …

Maha Sahasrara Puja: The Start of a New Era Château de Mesnières, Rouen (France)

Maha Sahasrara Puja, in the chapel of the castle of Mesnières, Rouen (France), 5 May 1984. It is so wonderful for your Mother to see so many beautiful Sahaja Yogis assembled together, on this day of Sahasrara. I think the first era of Sahaja Yoga has ended now, and new has started. In the first era of Sahaja Yoga, the starting point was, first, the opening of the Sahasrara, and gradually moving towards the completion, I find there are so many who are great sahaja yogis today. It is a very natural process of growth that you have gone through. The first one was, we can say, is just the awakening of the Kundalini, and piercing the fontanelle bone area. As you see on top of your head these bandhans, that’s how you too have in your head, same way, and you have the chakras same way built in, in your Sahasrara. So, in the first era of Sahaja Yoga we have awakened the deities in your centres, in the medulla oblongata and also in the brain. But now the time has come for us to spread it on a horizontal level, and to move it on the horizontal level, we have to understand how to go about it. Like the seven colours of the rainbow, we have got seven colours of the light of these centres, of the chakras. And when we start it from the back, from the Mooladhara, bringing it up to the, this side, Agnya, then Read More …

Shri Yogeshwara Puja: God of Yoga Chelsham Road Ashram, London (England)

Shri Yogeshwara Puja. Chelsham Road, London (UK), 15 August 1982. Today is a great day for all of us to be jubilant that the primordial being Himself incarnated on this earth as “Shri Krishna” So many aspects of His being have been described in so many of my lectures to you ; but the greatest and greatest of all the aspects of this primordial being was that He was the Yogeshwara. He was the  “God of Yoga” – Yogeshwara. He was the Lord of our Union with the Divine. Without His permission and without His sanction we cannot be Sahaja Yogis. He was Yogeshwara and a real Yogi is a person who gets this Yogeshwara awakened within him. The word “Yoga” that we understand is the union of our attention with the Divine. But still we do not realise the implications – what does it mean? What should have happened to us? Of course, you get powers. As soon as you become the spirit, you get powers. One of the powers you get is of “collective consciousness”, that is also the gift of Shri Krishna and that you start feeling the collectivity. Your ego and superego are sucked in, so you get rid of your karmas and your conditionings and a new sprouting of the new life of the new age starts. But still what is the speciality, the greatness of Yogeshwara? Because He is Ishwara for you. He is the Ishwara of all the Yogis and what is His Read More …

From Heart to Sahasrara Guildhall Theatre, Derby (England)

“Heart, Vishuddhi, Agnya, Sahasrara – Becoming the Knowledge”,Public Programme, Derby (UK), 11 July 1982. I’m happy that Dr. Warren could explain to you those chakras about which I told you yesterday, because in one short lecture you can’t cover all these points. And if you get your Realization and you progress well, then you can listen to My tapes which are in hundreds, and you can understand the knowledge is vast like ocean. As I yesterday told you that when you get enlightenment, you become the knowledge. It’s a very confused statement; people don’t understand what does it mean to “become the knowledge.” The other day a gentleman came to Me and he told Me that “My guru has already given me the knowledge.” I said, “How?” “Because he told me, ‘I’ve given you the knowledge.’” I said, “But still, how is it, it is knowledge? How do you believe that he has given you the knowledge?” So he said, “No Mother, he touched me on my forehead and I saw a light.” I said, “Then still, you can see the light otherwise also. How is it you have got the knowledge?” So he started thinking about it. He said that “What should happen If I get the knowledge?” I said, “See, this is another person sitting next to you, he is a Sahaja Yogi. He knows what Kundalini is; also he knows how to raise your Kundalini. He knows what is your problem, what your chakras are catching. He Read More …

Guru Puja: Establishing the Guru Principle and Havan After Puja Nirmala Palace - Nightingale Lane Ashram, London (England)

Guru Puja, “Establishing the Guru Principle”   Nightingale Lane Ashram, London (UK), July 4th, 1982 Shri Mataji: Please, be seated. Who’s going to translate Me? Yogi: Gregoire. Shri Mataji: Why don’t you take one of these, Gregoire? Warren: Mother, that is the public address microphone – they won’t be able to hear You. This is for the recording on the tape. Shri Mataji: Then how will they hear him? Will it…? Warren: Mother has to have this one… Gregoire: Should I hold it and sit here, Mother, in front? Shri Mataji: Yes, yes. Then – how will you translate? Gregoire: In French, most of them… Shri Mataji: But loudly. Gregoire: Yes, Mother. Shri Mataji: I think, why don’t you stand up,  and see there – you can stand up there. (Gregoire: “Near there?”) Yes, there. (Gregoire: “OK”) And you can talk loudly, that’s a better idea. Be careful about that. There’s a flame there. Yogi: Just excuse me, Mother. Shri Mataji: I’ve got a problem (unclear. Maybe with the microphone). (To a little girl:) May God bless you. Yes, yes! Oh, thank you, thank you. Aradhana has come. Go and see them. There, there! In the most auspicious time that is called as Krita Yuga, we all have assembled here to understand the ways and methods of establishing our Principle of a Master. Krita Yuga. “Krita Yuga” means the time when you have to do something – “krita: when it was done.” So you are the channels of that doing, doing Read More …

Guru Puja: The Declaration of Shri Mataji London (England)

Guru Puja, “The Declaration of Shri Mataji”. Dollis Hill ashram, London, England. 2 December 1979. A month back, I told Rustom that, “You must have a puja arranged, this Sunday. It’s a full moon day”. And he asked Me, “What should you call it? Is it a Guru Puja? Or is it a Puja for Mahalakshmi, or Ganesha’s Puja?” So, I told him, “Call it a Guru Puja”. And he asked Me later on, much later, when I was going to India, that, “Why not also have the Christmas Puja over here?” Today is a very, important day. Because, long time back, when Christ was just a child, He read from the Scriptures, and declared to the multitudes, that He was the Advent – the incarnation, who is the Savior. They believed that a Savior is going to come. Today, long time back, on a Sunday, He said, He declared that He was the Savior. That’s why today is the Advent Sunday. He had to live for a very, very short time. So, at a very young age He had to declare that He was the Advent. Now it is remarkable to see, that before this, no incarnation said publicly, that, they were incarnations. Rama of course, had forgotten that He was an incarnation. In a way, He made Himself to forget, played His maya upon Himself to become a complete human being – Maryada Purushottama. And Shri Krishna also only told, one person Arjuna, just before he was to Read More …

How to get to the Spirit that lies within Caxton Hall, London (England)

Public Program. Caxton Hall, London, England. 26 November 1979. …and how it resides within us and how we are lost in the curtains of Maya. Today I am going to tell you how we get to that Spirit. There are two types of methods people employ in finding out that Spirit. One is called as anuvopai, and another one is called as shaktopai. ‘Anu’ means a molecule. When we are lost in the Maya, as I had told you last time, actually the Spirit is eternal, It is all-powerful. It never loses Its power whether we are old, young, whatever condition we may be, the Spirit has Its own power, all the time. But, the reflection of the Spirit in us, the light of the Spirit in us, depends on the quality of our reflector, how we are. And because of the quality being so poor sometimes, darkness is created within us and in that darkness, we do not know sometimes, even to that extent, that there is something beyond. So the first style of seeking is anuvopai as you call it, which is depending on separating molecules after molecules. Because under these circumstances, when you are surrounded by darkness, you see Spirit just as a molecule or you can say a spark or a flicker. Sometimes you just get a flicker of it. As you know the thoughts arise within us and fade away. We see the thoughts rising and fading away. And there are many thoughts all around Read More …

Meditation and Prayer, Prayer To The Almighty, Dhyan Aur Prathna Mumbai (India)

1975-02-09, Meditation and Prayer, Mumbai The most important part of Sahaja Yoga is that, to progress in it, you have to meditate. Meditation is very important. Even if you don’t do anything else but meditate, you can progress in Sahaja Yoga. As I told you, this is a new path, a new dimension. A new thing. In which you have jumped in. In your mind, in that Sea you have gone in. But if you want to get inside of it, you have to meditate.  Some people say, Mother I don’t get time to meditate. Modern man has clock now a days to save time. But he doesn’t know what is he saving time for? That he doesn’t know. The time is being saved for Sahaja Yoga. There was this gentleman who wanted to go to London. He was saying, Mother please get me the ticket, talk to someone in air India, please let me go there, I have to go through this plane only. Mother asked : «  what’s the matter, what is important ? » He said : « Mother I must go there I have to save time. » « What’s the matter, why are you saving time to go there? » « Mother because there is a special dinner and then there is a ballroom. »  Just remember that the watch on your hands is just for Sahaja Yoga. For a person who spends his whole time in Sahaja Yoga, it is not important that he does office work or house work, but he Read More …
