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

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

Easter Puja: You must forgive The Pride Hotel, Nagpur (India)

Easter Puja, “You must forgive”, Hotel Pride, Nagpur (India), March 23th, 2008 I never expected all of you to be here present for the puja. I don’t know how you have managed to come (laughter and applause). Otherwise, it’s a very important day today for all of us because you know how Christ died. He was crucified. He was put on a cross and then He died. Wonderful the way he said about you people. He asked for forgiveness from God. What we have to learn from His life is the way He knew how to forgive all of us. We have to also forgive people. That seems to be very difficult for people to forgive and if they are angry, they are angry, they cannot forgive. Then you are no more sahaja yogis; sahaja yogis must forgive. Very important; because that is the power you have got from Christ, to forgive. Human beings make mistakes, that is a part of their lives. But at the same time, as sahaja yogis must remember that you have to forgive. That is much more important than getting angry. So to forgive people for doing something wrong according to you or according to God, you have to forgive. And you will be surprised that the forgiveness is such a great, satisfying quality. If you can forgive people, you will become extremely pure. Because the dirt or the anger that is within us goes out. So to forgive is the biggest blessings human beings have. Read More …

Talk and Quawalli of the Evening, Eve of Diwali Noida (India)

Talk of the Evening Eve of Diwali. Noida (India), 10 November 2007. (Translation from Hindi) Happy Diwali. I wish you all a very happy Diwali. You have seen these different types of dances; understand one thing from them, that whoever has written it or said it, they are all saying the same thing. The greatest thing that they said was that the Paramatma is One. They had incarnated in different forms, avatars, but the Paramatma is One. There were no disputes amongst them. They came in this world for the destruction of evil and killing the wicked people; and this is happening. I am seeing everywhere that these evil people are getting exposed, and now it is your duty, too, to see that all those who are evil, those who are working against the Paramatma and who are ready to do anything for the sake of earning money, all go to Hell. We do not know how many Hells there are! The place where you are all sitting now is very far away from Hell. There is no relation with Hell at all. But even staying here, if you perform unreligious deeds, do wrong things, then you, too, can go to Hell. There are many types of Hells, and the arrangements to go there are also very nicely done, because those who are going there do not even know where they are going. Those who remain behind go to Heaven. Nobody on this earthly abode even knows that they may go to Hell. Doing wrong deeds Read More …

10th Day of Navaratri, Dassehra Celebrations Sydney (Australia)

Dassehra. Tenth day of Navaratri, Sydney (Australia), 21 October 2007. Mother looks at yoginis, smiles and says ‘Very happy’. Please sit comfortably. Today is the (indistinct) great day , isn’t it (ji) Dassera. [Yogis organize a microphone for Shri Mataji] Is it coming? Working?.. So today is Dassera, is a very big day in India.  They say on this day Ravana was killed. He was the worst enemy of human beings, and he was killed.  But whatever it is then, as a memory of that great man, Shri Ram, they celebrate today Dassera.  And on this day, they say, those who are dushtas,  means bad people or we can say negative, they are killed. Can you imagine?  (chuckles) So this day is regarded as a very important day in India, and they make a big statue of Ravana. You all know who was Ravana,  (yogis:  “Yes, Shri Mataji”) whom Shri Rama killed.  He was a horrible fellow and he took away the wife of Shri Ram, Sita, by force. But she was such a chaste woman that he couldn’t touch her. He tried; he couldn’t touch her. He couldn’t achieve any power over her. On the contrary she was very powerful. So at that time, Shri Rama’s mother-in-law,  I should say, who was the wife of Dasharata, she said  …she used to..she’s like a big saadhuni, and she said “that from today two marriages are not allowed, only one”.  So among Hindus there’s only one marriage. They don’t have two Read More …

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

Second day of Navaratri, October 13, 2007, Sydney, Australia Come here also, come in, sit here, another one also (talking to people), come forward. There are people who could not sit. Can you go and see if every one is inside? Sorry, I didn’t know you were all here. Now she said. So, I said, “All right”. Shri Mataji: You can hear Me there? Sahaja Yogis: Yes, Shri Mataji. Shri Mataji: All of you? Sahaja Yogis: Yes, Shri Mataji. Shri Mataji: Those who can’t hear Me raise your hand! [laughter; applause] Shri Mataji: All right, thank you. [laughter] Want something? Come forward. Are you all right? So you’d better sing one song. I’m sorry they told me now there are people waiting. Very nice to see you all so happy here. Today is the second day and is a very important day from the point of evolution. As you know, that our second Chakra is very important, that’s why today is very important. So what is the second Chakra? Do you know what is the second Chakra? Ah! What did they say? Sahaja Yogi: Swadishthan. Shri Mataji: You must tell loudly! Swadishthan is the Chakra, is very important, because in this Kali Yuga, Swadishthana works the most. We have so many agents, [Shri Mataji smiles], to make it work and work very hard. You know what is in the second Chakra. In the second Chakra, what happens? That we are caught up by our ambition, and the ambition makes you Read More …

Adi Shakti Puja: You Have to Become Fragrant Campus, Cabella Ligure (Italy)

Adi Shakti Puja, Cabella Ligure, 24 June 2007.   It is very nice to see you all again here. I think this is the first Puja that we are having in this place and I hope you are all comfortable and convenient for you to come here.   Today is really a very great day. It’s an Adi Shakti, to celebrate Adi Shakti and what is the origin of this Adi Shakti. I’ve never talked about it. This is the first time I’ll tell you that Adi Shakti is the Primordial Mother, is the power, power of God, that wanted to create this world. And She Herself managed to create this great world.   (Can’t you all sit down? There’s no space for them or what? Please be seated. Why are they standing? There are chairs behind you. It’s alright you can sit on chairs.   This is all falling down (refers to microphone).   As far as possible be comfortable. Don’t strain yourselves unnecessarily. I hope you all find some place to be seated comfortably.)   So today I’m going to tell you about Adi Shakti which is a very, very ancient subject. Adi Shakti is the power of God Himself and She created this world to bring His kingdom on this Earth.   You can imagine it was, there was nothing but darkness and out of this darkness She had to create all these beautiful, picturous trees and all kinds of vegetation. That She did create. But what Read More …

Easter Puja: Be Peaceful House in Pratishthan, Pune (India)

HH Shri Mataji, Easter Puja. Pratishthan, Pune (India), 8 April 2007. Shri Mataji: Today is a very important day. [Mic is changed] Hello.  Sahaja Yogis: Hello Shri Mataji Shri Mataji: Better, is it? Sahaja Yogi: Yes Shri Mataji. I’m saying today is very important. This is a new starting for you, for you all. Try to understand that you have worked very hard so far and you wanted to do much more than you have been able to do. That was your desire and it will work out, definitely it will work out. If your desire is strong things will work out and you’ll get a great chance of helping people as you have helped yourself and you are happy about it, it’s better that you decide to help others. It’s important, they all should be blessed. You can do it. There lies your leadership that you have to give it to others. Most of you have got it for yourself but you have to give it to others. Let the others also gain in their spirituality. I know so many of you got your Realization and you are so much in it and you are all very happy. So be happy and cheerful, that is the first sign that you are Realized, that  you have got the Realization. With this Realization you can give Realization to others. The speciality of today is that Christ came back to life just to do something for us. So, it’s a very important Read More …

Sahasrara Puja: Continue To Live A Life of Reality Campus, Cabella Ligure (Italy)

Sahasrara puja, “Continue to live a life of Reality”,. Cabella Ligure (Italy), 9 May 2004. Today is a very important day in our lives as Sahaja Yogis. This is the day when Sahasrara was opened out, which was really a very charismatic thing that happened. I never expected that in my lifetime I will be able to work it out, but it has been. And so many of you have got your Sahasrara opened. Without that, you could never have known what is the truth. You were all lost, as everybody is. First of all, Sahasrara is the only way we can perceive, understand and know the reality. You have come to know as to what is the reality and you’re enjoying that state where you know what is the reality. It’s a great blessing that Sahasrara was opened out and all of you got your Realization. Otherwise, all talks are just talks, has no meaning, has no understanding and that’s why my first anxiety was to open Sahasrara. That worked out, worked out well and all of you have got your Sahasrara opened. It’s a remarkable thing. Nobody can believe that so many of you have got your Sahasrara open, but I can see now clearly the light on top of your heads. Whatever you have achieved is remarkable, no doubt. It is because of honest searching, honest searching, that you have got it. My doing is nothing because you were just there like a lamp and I just Read More …

Diwali Puja: The Need for Sincerity Los Angeles (United States)

Diwali Puja. Los Angeles (USA), 9 November 2003. Today is the great day of Diwali.That means today is the great day of putting up (?) lights, lights of your heart together to make a greater light for the world to move in a proper direction. It’s a day of great joy, and those who join in this, are spreading also great joy. But the problems are there, as they say, but for us there is no problem because there is no darkness, we don’t see any darkness anywhere, we see lights, and lights, and lights. Then what is the thing missing, missing is our sincerity. We have to be very sincere with ourselves, because it is not just a borrowed love or a borrowed joy, but it is from within the source, it’s flowing, flowing and flowing. So that is to be awakened, and that love should flow, and our small petty things like jealousies and competitions and all those things which spoilus must be washed away. And it can be washed if your heart is full of love. Today is a day of spreading love, light of love, so that everybody feels enlightened and happy and forgets these petty problems. I am happy that you have been able to get some hall, it’s all luck that we got it, people were so much worried about getting a hall. But it has just happened, so you should know also that our destiny is all also guided and looked after. You Read More …

Shri Ganesha Puja: They Are All Incarnations Campus, Cabella Ligure (Italy)

Shri Ganesha Puja. Cabella (Italy), 13 September 2003 Now we are facing little children. They are the ones who are incarnations. They are the ones who are going to lead humanity into some great advancement. The humanity has to be looked after. They are tomorrow’s humanity. And we are today’s. And what are we giving to them, for them to follow? What is their aim in life? It is very, very difficult to say. But with Sahaja Yoga, they will all go in the proper way. They’ll behave in a proper way. And the whole thing will be a different mass of Sahaja Yogis coming up. But it is the duty of bigger Sahaja Yogis to look after them, to have better moral standards, to have better lives, so that they follow your life and become genuinely good Sahaja Yogis. It’s a very big responsibility – perhaps we don’t recognize it, we don’t understand – but all these are little creatures which are after the image of great souls, and they should be brought up in that way, respected in that manner, and loved with great care. This is to be understood.  The problem with our elderly people is this: that we do not consider them [the children] to be considered, to be bothered about, to be understood about. We think we are too intelligent, too good, and we need not waste our energy with them. This is the trouble of the elderly people. But today when we are sitting Read More …

Christmas Puja Ganapatipule (India)

Christmas Puja, Ganapatipule (India), 25 December 2002. Merry Christmas to you all.According to Sahaja Yoga, Christ is settled on your Agnya Chakra. His whole life is depicting the qualities of a person who is a realised soul. What He has suggested in His own life is that you should not have any greed or lust. The way these days people are greedy all over the world is really shocking. Right from the childhood, our children also learn to ask for this or ask for that; only complete satisfaction in life can give you that equanimity, that balance by which you do not hanker after things.These days even India has become very much westernised in the sense they are also very much wanting to have this and that. Actually, now in America suddenly, with this happening, people are getting to spirituality. They come to spirituality because they think they have not found any satisfaction anywhere. But we have to see from His life, the great life of Christ. First He was born in a small little hut, as you saw many of them when you come round. Very much satisfied. And He was put in a cradle which was all covered with dry, very dry grass. Can you imagine? And then He sacrificed His life on the cross. Whole thing is a story of a sacrifice. Because He had a power, power of Spirit, that He could sacrifice anything, even sacrifice His own life, so you can understand the greatness of Read More …

Diwali Puja: The Importance of Meditation Los Angeles (United States)

Diwali Puja. Lake Piru, Los Angeles, (USA) – 3 November 2002. I wish you a very, very happy Diwali. To see all of you here, is itself such a joy for me that you all have taken to Sahaja Yoga in such a beautiful way. It’s your own, Self is your own, Spirit is your own, but to take to Self is difficult. It’s only your desires, I think, which is being fulfilled. And that’s how you have got your self-realisation. It cannot be forced, as you know very well. It has to work out only with your desire, only with your surrendering. No use talking about it. No use convincing about it. What works out is your desire, simple as that. The power of desire within you works it out. There are many, who are not here, who have got their realisation all over the world. I remember all of them, and all of you should remember them. Today is a nice day when we can think of all those who are enlightened in this world. That’s the real Diwali: the enlightenment of human beings. It’s not candle, it’s not some lamp, but it’s human beings. If they are enlightened, then there’s no problem any more left. The problems come with the people who are not enlightened, because they are in the darkness. They are groping in the darkness, and some of them don’t know also that they are completely ignorant of realities. Once you come to Sahaja Yoga, Read More …

Shri Kubera Puja Talk: Give up from your heart Canajoharie (United States)

Shri Kubera Puja, Canajoharie (USA), 18 Agosto 2002 Today we are going to worship Shri Krishna as a very great personality. And you know why He came on this Earth to establish, this is the new form of, not Virat, not Virata, but a form by which this country became so prosperous. And by His advent only He created a beautiful mentality among the people, how to develop this culture with dharma. And you had very great leaders, who followed Him and who worshipped Him in a way and created a new world of this America.But, unfortunately, as the time passed on, His form vanished from the minds of the people. The reason was Krishna was represented here by very, very wrong type of people, who had no idea about Shri Krishna, thatHe was a great master of wealth, that he knew how to use the wealth and how to create the wealth with dharma, not with adharma.They all forgot about it, completely and gradually started using maneuvering powers, all kinds of, all kinds of adharmic things, cheating, grabbing money, spending their money in absolutely useless things.He’s Kubera. He doesn’t need any money, of course. He achieves money and not only that, He lived in money.They said that He created a golden house for Him, absolutely made with gold in Dwarika, but it’s submerged in the water, in the sea and nobody believed that it is true. But now they have found out His house under the waters, very deep Read More …

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

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

Adi Shakti Puja: Use Your Right Side For Giving Realization Campus, Cabella Ligure (Italy)

Adi Shakti Puja. Cabella Ligure (Italy), 23 June 2002. Today it’s a different day altogether for all of you because this is the puja of Adi Shakti, and Adi Shakti is a complete personality. It’s not only the left side that you know. You all know only the left side, from Shri Ganesha through the ascent of different, different chakras on the left side. I didn’t want to tell you about the right side to begin with, because those who have gone through the right side got just lost. They got Gayatri Mantra from the writings but they didn’t know what it was about. They just used to learn it by heart. They didn’t also know the real meaning of it, and that is how they moved on the right side and, I don’t know, they landed up at the Agnya; and then they were trying for the Self-realisation. They were promised that, if you do this right side properly, you will reach to the ultimate goal of Self-realisation, but none of them reached it. Most of them got into a terrible temper, terrible temper of cursing others, of destroying others. All these things they learnt through their right-side movement. There was no Kundalini awakening, and they were made to go up to the, at the most, Agnya Chakra, and then they collapsed into different places of complete ignorance. All these books were written without understanding that it’s not easy to go via right side, but the best was to Read More …

Birthday Puja: You Can Do A Lot New Delhi (India)

Birthday Puja, Delhi, India 21-03-2002 [Translation from Hindi] I have been watching the magnitude of love. How it has spread into all corners. From where to where it has reached. Upto how many people? No one knows. But I have understood its Principle. Can there be any Principle of love? Love has no Principle.Like an all encompassing divine halo,  love has spread far and wide. We have no awareness of it.  We do not know it. But the love of the Almighty has spread to the entire creation, the whole world.  Only after getting your Self Realisation you can experience this. You can know this. That this is love.  This is the love of God. God’s energy is only Love. It is only the energy of Love that becomes effective.  We are not able to understand this. To hate someone; to harbour enmity with someone; to wish evil on someone; to fight with someone.  This is very low and mean.   You are a Sahaja Yogi.  In your heart you should only feel love. Nothing else.  The situation that is prevailing in our country today … Looking at it we cannot understand that in the name of religion why there is  so much hatred and violence. What has happened. What was the need for this? Something starts, then comes rejection and contradiction, and it has a reaction which is more violent than the original action.  In this way whatever consciousness and sensitivity you have about God is reduced. Now we have Read More …

Shri Ganesha Puja: You Have To Protect The Innocent Campus, Cabella Ligure (Italy)

Shri Ganesha Puja, Cabella Ligure, 22 September 2001. Today we have assembled here to worship Shri Ganesha. Shri Ganesha who is the Lord of Innocence. He is the ocean of innocence. And though’ he is such a young, little boy, he can fight the whole world, he can destroy all the negativity. That’s the sign of innocence. There have been stories that children who have fallen from a very great height were completely saved, nothing happened to them. Their innocence is such a powerful thing that it doesn’t harm anyone who is not to be harmed. It has all the wisdom of the world, all the understanding of the world; and anybody who tries to harm the innocence, the world, the whole world – which may not have cared so much for innocence, might not have worshiped innocence so much – but they all stand, stand up against anybody who tries to harm the innocence. You can see in your own lives around you, (if/when) anybody tries to trouble children – all of the them, whatever they are, whatever they are coming from, whatever maybe their nationality, they all jump, all jump to control and to safeguard that child. What is it? What is it within us that makes us so very conscious to protect the innocence? It’s really a shame, a great shame for us, when we find in this world that innocence is under attack. Anything else can be tolerated. Innocent people who have done nothing wrong, those Read More …

Shri Krishna Puja: Ananya Bhakti New York City (United States)

Shri Krishna puja. Nirmal Nagari, Canajoharie, New York (USA), 29 July 2001. Today we have gathered here to worship Shri Krishna, the One who was Virata, who fought all kinds of evil without entering into the arena. Shri Krishna’s life, in itself, is a very beautiful, creative and loving thing, but to understand Him, it is not easy. For example, in Kurukshetra, where the war was going on and Arjuna became depressed and he said that: “Why should we fight, fight our own kith and kin, fight our own close relations, friends and our gurus? Is it religion? Is it Dharma?” Before that, in Gita, Shri Krishna has described a personality which is a sage. We can call him a Saint. Or He called it a Sthita Pragna. So, when asked what is the definition of the sthita Pragna, the description He gave was about a person who is absolutely at peace with himself and at peace with his atmosphere. It’s very surprising. All this knowledge He gave in first place in the Gita. That is—that is the best, that He called as the Gnyana Marga. That is Sahaja Yoga, by which you get the subtle Knowledge. But at the same time, when you see Him advising Arjuna, it is very surprising that here He’s talking only of spirituality, of complete detachment and there He’s telling Arjuna that: “You go and fight. They are already dead people. Whom are you fighting?” This conflict is difficult to understand, that how could Read More …

We Have To Be Transformed Royal Albert Hall, London (England)

Public Program in Royal Albert Hall. London (UK), 14 July 2001. I bow to all the seekers of truth. Some of you have found the truth, some of you have not found it fully, and some of you have not found it at all. But if you look around in today’s situation, you’ll have to agree there’s a big turmoil going on. Countries after countries are taking to all kinds of wrong things. Lot of cold war is on, people are killing each other, destroying beautiful places, cutting each other’s throat for nothing at all. They are all human beings created by God. God Almighty has created them and has brought them to this level of human awareness. At this juncture one can’t see where are we going in a collective way. This is, where have we to reach – or is it our destiny? Is this the destiny of human beings, to be destroyed by each other for land or for anything else? Think of the whole world as one, and think what’s happening all over: every day we read newspaper, every day there is some sort of a horrible news about horrible things people are doing to each other, for no rhyme and reason. We have to think, what is the destiny? Where are we going? Are we going to hell or to Heaven? What is our situation around? Can we help it? What’s wrong with human beings is they are still in the complete control of ignorance. Read More …

Adi Shakti Puja: Humanity has to be saved through you and nobody else Campus, Cabella Ligure (Italy)

“The Work of the Adi Shakti”, Adi Shakti Puja, Cabella Ligure (Italy), 3 June 2001. Today we are worshipping Adi Shakti. I think this is the most important puja because it is the power of Adi Shakti that has given you Self-realisation, that has given you the truth, that has given you the power of compassion and love.  That’s the power that separated from Sadashiva. And this power wanted, Herself, to create this complete universe — universes after universes. She’s creating and loving. With Her love, She did this great Creation: creation of this world also. This is a specially selected planet, which was very beautifully brought in the centre, between the Sun and the Moon, for the creation of, ultimately, the human beings.  This is Her great work [done] with such love and affection, and with very great hope that Her children will know the truth and will get the ultimate knowledge about themselves and about everything else. As you have read in The Bible about how Adi Shakti came in the form of a snake and told human beings that, “You have to know the knowledge,” [to] Adam and Eve, and to Eve especially. And they accepted to eat the fruit of knowledge because they would have remained just like animals, without knowing any subtleties of life — little higher animals maybe. Once they ate the fruit they started feeling that there is something wrong, the way they are without any clothes. So they brought some leaves of Read More …

Talk after Sahasrara Puja: Penetrate Your Attention Campus, Cabella Ligure (Italy)

Talk after Sahasrara Puja, “Penetrate Your Attention”,. Cabella Ligure, Italy, 7 May 2000 It was really a wonderful idea to put my attention to all these fields of life which are very important and, as it is, I have attention on all of them and I care for all that. But I would say now you all people put in your attention to it, because it is you who can do something about it. You can start with the nature as they said is this: we have to be kind to the nature. We are having such problems. People are cutting out trees, doing all kinds of things, without even thinking that this is for the progeny [and] will become a desert. So, in the same way, for everything, for your fruits and agriculture, vibrations can really change it. We had in our garden, you won’t believe, a peony flower – just like this (Mother open’s her hands) even bigger than this, very bigger. We have never seen such a flower. We had also the tulips so big as that. I haven’t seen such tulips in my lifetime. With vibrations you can improve everywhere. Say, you go and see some politician, let’s see, or some political party, then you use your hands and give them bandhans all the time. You can sit on the table across and under the table you go on giving them bandhan. (laughter) You have powers, but if you don’t use your powers then it is Read More …

Sahasrara puja: Attain that Sahaja state Campus, Cabella Ligure (Italy)

Sahasrara puja, “Attain that Sahaja state”,  Cabella Ligure (Italy), 07 May 2000. Thirty years back, when Sahasrara was opened, I found darkness all over. People were so ignorant. They had no awareness [about] what they have to find. Of course, I found they wanted to find something that was unknown, but they did not know what was unknown, what they have to find. And they were extremely ignorant people, about themselves, and about their surroundings, and about the aim of their life. I didn’t know how to start the topic with them. When the Sahasrara was opened, I thought of trying Self-realisation only on one lady: she was an old lady. And there was another lady who also started to come up. This old lady got her Realisation, and then the another lady who was much younger told me that she gets fits and she gets possessed. “Oh my God!” I said, “how will I give her Realisation?” But somehow she got cured very fast and she also got her Realisation. It’s a very unknown knowledge. Also, human beings, in their ego, do not want to accept that they are not yet complete, that they have to have their Realisation. Also their style of life was such that they had no time for themselves. I found it very difficult to convince people that you must take your Self-realisation, because they thought it is something imaginary, it is very far-fetched, and they only believed in ‘gurus’ who would say alright, “Do Read More …

Address to IAS Officers, Stress and Tension Management Y.B.Chavan Auditorium, Mumbai (India)

Address to IAS Officers, Mumbai (India), 11 March 2000. I bow to all the seekers of truth. That’s a very interesting subject that has been given to Me to talk to you people because I have been always worried about the IAS, IPS, and other Government servants, very much worried because I have known the kind of life My husband was leading. And I used to think: if these new people, who have come to the services, to the Government service, we have to tell them the dangers that are ahead of them. Because we don’t know what is the subtle system within us, which works. And in the subtle system, when we lead this kind of a very speedy, intensive life, it has a defect. It has a defect you can see in the chart. They have shown the, they have shown the subtle system which works it out. So, we have a center here on the crossing of the optic chiasma. These, this center is very important because we react with this. We react to everything. By this reaction we create a problem within ourselves. And this reaction comes to us because we do not know how to go beyond the mind. Every time we are looking at something, we react. We look at someone, we react. But we cannot just watch. We cannot be just the witness. If we could be the witness, it will not have any effect on us. But we cannot be. That’s the Read More …

Christmas Puja Ganapatipule (India)

Christmas Puja, Ganapatipule, India, December 25th 1999 Today we are going to celebrate the birth of Jesus Christ. He came on this earth in a very special way, that He was born to a Virgin. And we can understand as you know as Shri Ganesha was also born in the same way, and as Jesus is a incarnation of Shri Ganesha He had all His powers when He was born, He did not have to bring any outward weapons to show that what powers He had. But He had all the powers with Him, but still He tried to show tolerance and understanding, because at that time the people with whom He had to deal were absolutely ignorant of spirituality. They were actually Jews and they were instructed by Moses, Abraham, all these people. But they had lost their moorings, and they didn’t know what to seek, how to seek, and they were not seekers. They are quite satisfied with all the Jewish ritualism they had as also in other religions we do the same. There was no seeking at all for anything great. And so He had a very difficult life, extremely difficult life. When He was born there was a sign, of a star which three men saw and they followed it and reached that place where they found that He was born in a manger, the very simple, simplest possible place to be born. Was born in all great difficulties but it was shown clearly through a star that He was Read More …

8th Day of Navaratri, The Powers of Shri Mahakali Campus, Cabella Ligure (Italy)

Navaratri puja. Cabella Ligure (Italy), 17 October 1999. Tonight we have gathered here to do the Puja to the Devi, that is Mahakali –we can call Her, or Durga. So many types of forms She has taken, to kill the negative forces that are trying to trouble or to obstruct, or even to grow the people who were gentle and good. Her forms are of different types – that we know about, that She destroyed so many rakshasas, She destroyed so many evildoers. Also we do not know that, in the World Wars that we had, She was there to protect the right type of people. And that’s how they all survived the ill-blood plan, ill-gotten plan of very cruel and evil people. The evil people have a capacity to hate and to express their hate in every way that is possible. They are really born evil and there are also who ‘become’ evil. When they are born evil, you can make them out: that their whole style is so aggressive and so vindictive about things. But hatred has no limit, no limits at all. Because, if they hate, if they hate someone, then – just to justify that hatred – they’ll say all kinds of things. Just to justify. But sometimes they don’t even want to justify. They just feel that they ‘hate’ and it’s a fundamental right they have got to hate. But these forces join together sometimes to form a joint personality of evil, which tries to Read More …

Adi Shakti Puja: Sahaja Yogis have to transform others Canajoharie (United States)

Adi Shakti Puja. Canajoharie, USA. 20 June 1999. It is such a great pleasure to Me, to see you all assembled here, and which is such a far-fetched place, away from the madding crowd. It’s such a beautiful place, and which has vibrations. Shri Mataji: They can’t hear you. Now can you hear Me? Sahaja Yogis: Yes. Shri Mataji: All right. It’s all right now. I selected this place suddenly from a very thick newspaper, American newspaper. The vibrations were just shooting out and I said, “What is this, coming from where?” And there was a little advertisement, and I said, “This is the place where we have to go.” This place has so many vibrations, even in the advertisement. So you can imagine how the guidance comes. It comes from vibrations, and that’s how I was here and this place was selected by the Divine Force. It happened only in one day! Such a miraculous thing to happen in one day! It was taking so much time for them even to get this, and suddenly I told them, “Better get it.” It all worked out, and we are now here in the most beautiful atmosphere. Of course, you know that Red Indians were driven out, and they came here to hide themselves. They were hiding themselves in this place so that they should not be crushed and destroyed forever. That era is over now: that era of domination, of entering into somebody else’s land and occupying it, and considering Read More …

Sahasrara Puja: Our Awareness has to become Paramchaitanya Campus, Cabella Ligure (Italy)

Sahasrara Puja, “Our Awareness has to become Paramchaitanya” Cabella Ligure, (Italy), 9 May 1999. Today we have gathered here to do the Sahasrara puja. Sahasrar, the word ‘sahastr’, in Sanskrit language, means ‘one thousand’. And there are one thousand petals in our brain which get enlightened. Of course, the doctors are quarrelling on that point but forget about them. Now these petals are kept ready for our enlightenment, and these are really the nerves, one thousand nerves, which are there for the enlightenment of the brain. So, when the Kundalini rises, she enlightens those one thousand nerves which become like — as you see here, the shape of these flames — like a petal. And that’s why it is called as ‘Sahasrara’ — is the centre of Sahasrara. In the human beings it is a very important centre, because this is the only centre by which we think and we try to stop whatever we don’t like. This is the centre which reacts, reacts in such a manner that, without any discretion we start saying, ‘no’ to this, and, ‘no’ to that, on small things also. Like somebody might say, “I don’t like this carpet,” “I don’t like this house,” “I don’t like that.” This language itself shows that — who are you? First find out!  But you cannot become yourself unless and until this Sahasrara, this brain is opened out and the Kundalini becomes one with the Paramchaitanya. Before that, you are in complete ignorance about what is good Read More …

Christmas Puja: Become Thoughtlessly Aware Ganapatipule (India)

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

Shri Ganesha Puja: Ekakarita Campus, Cabella Ligure (Italy)

Shri Ganesha Puja, “Ekakarita,” Cabella Ligure (Italy), 5 September 1998 Today we are going to worship Shri Ganesh. I think I have told you a lot about Him and His nature, but still so many of us have not yet realized what are His powers, and what He wants. The first and foremost thing is that to respect Shri Ganesha is to understand the importance of chastity. Chastity is not only for the women; it is more for the men to observe. If you have self-respect, in the real sense of the word, you will take to chastity without any difficulties. But if you have no self-respect, then you run after something which is very low, of a very degrading quality. So it’s very important that chastity must be respected, must be understood, and must be imbibed. This habit of not observing the proper protocol of the chastity develops from childhood. And we have to be very careful, when we are in a Ganesha state, we should not take to such horrible things. I don’t know from where people get the ideas. As you see today, in the whole world there’s a crisis of chastity. In the West, especially, we have heard of so many cases of child abuse. In a temple of God one should not even take the name of this dirty disease which has grabbed the people. But in India we have never heard of it, we don’t know. Of course, some of the men are very, Read More …

Shri Krishna Puja: He Gives You The Witness State Campus, Cabella Ligure (Italy)

Shri Krishna Puja. Cabella Ligure (Italy), 16 August 1998. Today we are going to have Shri Krishna Puja. It is a very important thing about the power of Shri Krishna that gives you a witness state. This is very important also because in these days of Kali Yuga and complete confusion of value system, all kinds of turmoil makes a very complex conditions to exist. The state of witnessing is only possible through meditation. You reach the state of thoughtless awareness. It is combined together. Now the witness state is such a state where you just do not react. If you react, then the problem starts. It’s a very simple thing to understand that we react through our ego or through our conditioning. Otherwise there is no way to react. Anything. Now, for example there is a beautiful carpet here. As soon as I look at it, if I use my ego I’ll start thinking, “Now, from where did they get it? How much they paid it?” This is the first reaction. Then you can even go further with it. Anger can come in. “Why did they bring such a nice carpet? What was the need to put it here?” Goes on like that, one after another. Now in my conditioning if I see these things, I would say that this color is not suited for Krishna Puja. They should have had another color for this Krishna Puja. So this kind goes on from one to another to another. But Read More …

Adi Shakti Puja: You Must Develop Humility Campus, Cabella Ligure (Italy)

Adi Shakti Puja. Cabella Ligure (Italy), 21 June 1998. In Russia the people, somehow, are very open-minded, not only that, the Scientists especially, are very open-minded and were suppressed very much. So they tried to find out the subtler things; not only finding out about chemicals or about some physical properties of the light, but, they wanted to go into the subtler side and they had found out already a great deal of knowledge about the auras – auras around the hands, auras around the body. They had done so much research and, it was accepted all over the world – their findings. Now this gentleman was a specialist, I think, because he’s a very well-known, a very very well-known person and he’s holding a very big position. He was saying that he has to run 150 organizations. Very humble and very nice person; and when he came out with this discovery, I was happy in a way, because scientifically, if it is proved, then nobody can challenge it. He has already written a book with all the algebraical complications of what he wanted to prove. He said there is a vacuum. Beyond the consciousness, there is vacuum; and in that vacuum only, you can know the reality and once all this becomes the reality, it is a science – and that’s how it is made into science. He showed so many of my photographs – especially the one where a lot of energy is coming out of my Sahasrara Read More …

Sahasrara Puja: Blessing of Divine Pours Only If Sahasrara is Completely Open Campus, Cabella Ligure (Italy)

Sahasrara Puja. Cabella Ligure (Italy), 10 May 1998. Today, it’s a great day because Sahasrara day and Mother’s day have come together. It’s a very Sahaj happening, I think, and that is what we have to understand, how Sahasrara and the motherhood go together. Sahasrara was definitely opened and Mother had to do it, because formerly those people who came on this earth tried to teach people about dharma, to bring them to the central path, to the straightforward path of ascent. They tried everything, whatever way They thought was good for a particular community, particular area, particular country. They talked about it and lots of books came out of it, but instead of all these books creating people of religious, spiritual and a united nature, created people who were all against each other. Absurd, it’s an absurd thing, but it happened. So all these books that were written, all this knowledge that was given, was all misused by human beings, just to get their own power, I should say. So, it was all a power-oriented, also money-oriented game going on. When we see the outcome of all these religions, we feel it’s all empty. They talk of love, they talk of compassion, but it all is for a purpose. It is all a political game sometimes, because they still feel that they should have power, not the spiritual power, but the worldly power, so that they can dominate the whole world. So, this domination started working so much in Read More …

Easter Puja: You Can Spread Sahaja Yoga Only Through Love and Compassion Istanbul (Turkey)

Easter Puja. Istanbul (Turkey), 19 April 1998. Today, we are celebrating the Resurrection of Christ. That is the greatest message of Christ life, not the crucifixion. Anybody can be crucified and killed, but this dead body of Christ was resurrected from death. Death itself died and He overcame it. It’s a miracle for ordinary human beings, definitely, but not for Christ, because He was a Divine person, He was Shri Ganesha, He was Omkara Itself. So, He could walk on the water, gravity would not affect Him, and also He got resurrected because death could not affect Him. Such a great Divine personality, specially created for human beings that people should recognise Him. But they did not recognise Him, they killed Him, in a very brutal manner. And even now they think [the] cross is a great thing because Christ died on a cross. It’s a very cruel idea of human beings to respect the cross. What does it show? It shows that people liked all the cruelties done to Him, symbolising cross as the one that represented His death and these atrocities, the way He was tortured. So, it was a very sad time when He was crucified. But when He got resurrected it was the most joyous, most auspicious and most beautiful time. The resurrection of Christ is very symbolic for Sahaj Yoga. If Christ could be resurrected, then if human beings also can be resurrected, because He came as a human being with all powers and He Read More …

Birthday Puja: Be confident, don’t lose your confidence New Delhi (India)

Birthday Puja, Delhi (India), 21 March 1998. [English Transcript] I was overjoyed to see the way you had organized this beautiful welcome. I must say that it’s your love which finds all kind of expressions of enjoying Sahaja Yoga. I really can’t understand how these unique ideas come to your heads, and you represent the different countries from where you have come. I wish you carry these flags back to your own countries, and tell them the message that the time has come for our resurrection, that we have to rise. We have to rise above this human level to a higher level of existence. And if that happens, then how it changes your life, how it makes you happy, how you lose all your absurd ideas of hatred and of harming others, injuring others: all this kind of ideas which have worked out to give some sort of a sadistic pleasure to many people, and they have enjoyed the way they want to destroy the joy of others, the happiness of others. To maintain the happiness, I know, you being Sahaja Yogis, you have to bear a lot, tolerate a lot of nonsense. You have already done it, and gradually once Sahaja Yoga is established in your own countries as something that is so beautiful, so very pure, so very important that all others in your countries also will try to follow that path which you have crossed over. Only your lives are the ones which will reflect the Read More …

Guru Puja: A Guru Should Be Humble And Wise Campus, Cabella Ligure (Italy)

Guru Puja. Cabella Ligure (Italy), 20 July 1997. Today’s puja is very important for us. You all have got your self realisation, you have all the knowledge that is necessary to give realisation to others. You have to know what you have already, that’s very important, because if you do not try your hand and if you do not try to give realisation to others, firstly you will have no faith in yourself – you’ll have no self esteem also.The second part is that, you try giving vibrations to other persons but don’t get involved with that person. I’ve seen some people get too much involved . If they give realisation to one person they think they have done a great job and they start working on that person, his family, his relations and this. So, so far as you must have learnt, that one may be related, one may be closer to one person but not necessarily he will have that much of a chance of self realisation. Only way to grow is to be collective, there’s no other way out. If people think that by staying away from ashrams, alone living somewhere, they will achieve much, that’s not the way Sahaja Yoga is meant. Formerly people used to go to Himalayas and most of them were separated and only one or two persons were chosen for spiritual growth. Here it is not a question of spiritual growth, it is a question of your collectivity growing in you. That Read More …

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

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

Birthday Puja: Mind is a Myth New Delhi (India)

Puja of the 73rd Birthday, “Mind is a myth”. Delhi (India), 21 March 1996. Translation from Hindi You are celebrating My birthday with so much love, reverence and respect.  Seeing this I think what have I done that you are showing so much love. Today I am going to tell you a very unusual fact, that this notion within us which we call as mind, is a myth.  The myth being, that when we are born, there is no such thing as mind within us.  As we gradually start performing actions, the outward reactions are of two kinds.  Either something becomes an impression or experience; or a consciousness of being the doer (ego) gets awakened within us.  Then from those come the tendencies which accumulate inside us like bubbles of thoughts, which create an artificial or bogus institution, which is so limited that they cannot comprehend the beauty, glory and expanse of reality.  All these things are created by us, and then we become slaves of it. For example we created the watch, and now we have become complete slaves of it.  In Sahaja Yoga you become Kaal-ateet, means you go beyond time.  Times moves along with you.  You do not run after time. Now people have started making computers, and they have become enslaved by it.  And in that enslavement, they have become so obsessed with it, that they are not able to realise that they are completely in its clutches.  Which is controlling them.  They are completely dependent Read More …

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

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

7th Day of Navaratri: You have to project and you don’t have to reflect Campus, Cabella Ligure (Italy)

Navaratri Puja. Cabella Ligure (Italy), 1 October 1995. Yesterday you have seen how Durga used to protect all the seekers – sadhakas, and how she killed the people who have been troubling, torturing, killing the seekers of truth. Her whole advent was to protect them from all these evil forces. In those days that was the most important work. So that’s how the sadhakas came up to these modern times and now they are seekers of truth or they have found the truth. All these different passages have taught the sadhakas what is the use of their lives. They were frantically first trying to find the truth, frantically and they went into different, difficult places. They thought by going into some lonely places they’ll be able to settle their minds in peace and they’ll be able to find the truth. Also they sacrificed many things – their wealth, which was bothering them, their families, they thought were standing in the way of their search. All this went on, and there are still some people who believe that by becoming an ascetic one can find the truth. Buddha did the same, Mahavira did the same, their life was nothing but a great tapasia. Their tapasias are helping us today, in such a way that we now have got such a blessing that our personalities, as they are, can receive self-realization, for which people struggled and struggled. In such a way, that if you read that how they were suffering you might Read More …

Fourth World Conference on Women Asian Games Village, Beijing (China)

Fourth World Conference on Women, “On the Global Problems Facing Women, Inter-Regional Round Table”. Commodity Exchange Tower, Beijing (China) 13 September 1995. Moderator: Dear Mother Shrivastava, Who is a spiritual Mother and the present head of Sahaja Yoga, which I’m very much looking forward to hearing what You have to say, because I’m sure that You have such desires for many women around the world. I’m looking forward to being touched by You today. H.H. Shri Mataji: Brothers and Sisters of the World, It is a great honor for Me to talk about global problems of women in front of this distinguished assembly. First of all, I would like to offer My profound gratitude to the government and people of our host country, the People’s Republic of China. I have had a privilege of visiting China on two previous occasions, and I am a great admirer of the wisdom and culture of this great nation that I have visited. This is beyond My imagination the most glorious time in the history of the world, that at this time we are so much aware of the problems of women. Women as a whole have definitely suffered over the ages, as the previous lady has told you, because we have not realized what their importance is and what their proper role is in human society. Society itself, which is her creation, tries to control or put down the womanhood. In the East, we can say, that due to fundamentalist influence women have Read More …

Medical Conference Bucharest, Ecological University of Bucharest (Romania)

Medical Conference, Ecological University of Bucharest (Romania), 2 August 1995. So all the professors, the Vice Chancellor who was so kind to invite Me here to talk to you about something which is very different, I would say in a way, very different from the medical science I have studied. I would not call it different but it is, I would say, it is the basis of our medicine. For example if you want to treat the tree for its sickness and you start applying things from outside it doesn’t work out so well. It may have reactions also. But if you can somehow go to the roots, then the whole tree can be treated. Our medical science now, in the modern times, has become very specialized, to such an extent that you may have a doctor for one eye and another doctor for another eye and there is no synthesis. There’s no treatment to the totality of the human being. This leads to problems and has created many kinds of reactions. So today I’m going to talk to you about the subtle system that is within us. You should not take Me for granted, there should not be any blind faith about it but if it is proved, this hypothesis that I put before you, then as scientists you must keep your minds open and then you can accept it as honest people because it is for the benevolence of yourself, your family, your country and the world at Read More …

Adi Shakti Puja: the hurdles in rising the Kundalini Campus, Cabella Ligure (Italy)

‘Money Orientation’, Adi Shakti puja, Cabella Ligure, 4 June 1995. Today we have gathered here to do the Kundalini puja or the Adi Shakti puja. There’s a difference between the two: Adi Shakti is the total power of God, of His desire, while [Adi] Kundalini is the one that is reflected, part which is reflected, in the human beings as Kundalini. So there’s a difference between the Adi Kundalini and the Adi Shakti. Adi Shakti is the Parashakti, is the power which is beyond all the powers, which controls all the powers. And one of the powers of Adi Shakti is Kundalini. For example the Kundalini which is placed within me, in the triangular bone, is not [the] totality of me. In the same way the Kundalini, which is placed within you, is not the totality. Of course, it is the power which is there to give you your Self-realisation; is the power that redeems you, that nourishes you, that enlightens your centres. But there are two other powers, as you know, very powerful, which are working through Ida and Pingala, and the third one is Mahalakshmi which is in the centre. Now Kundalini’s main job is to give you your Self-realisation, because She is your individual Mother. Everyone has the Kundalini within himself or herself reflected; whatever maybe the quality of that person. Now as you see reflections fall on everything. Say, the reflection of the Moon falls on the stone, we don’t see any reflection. It then falls Read More …

Sahasrara Puja: Achieve Complete Freedom Campus, Cabella Ligure (Italy)

“Achieve Complete Freedom”, Sahasrara Puja, Cabella Ligure (Italy), 7 May 1995. Today it’s a great day for us, for all the Sahaj Yogis, that on this day – I would say, we are late by one day, or two days – the Sahasrara was opened out. It was just a miracle, I should say, because I didn’t think that I am at a point where it could be done. So I wanted to wait, but some things happened that made me think that it has to be open: it was in such a situation that I felt that if Idelay it anymore now, it may help these false gurus to spread their nonsense all over. This is just, I should say, a sahaj way of doing things. Now, 25 years have passed, and you have all gathered here during this time, and we have so many others who are not here, who have achieved so many things. But perhaps we are not aware as to what we have achieved in the real sense of the word. You’ve got your vibrations, you can feel this All-pervading Power; you are, as they say, swimming in the Ocean of Joy; you are all enjoying the collectivity, and you have transcended many of your limitations. All this has happened to you because it is your right to have it. I don’t take any credit for it. Only thing [is that], all the time, I have been pointing it out to you, one thing, that Read More …

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

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

Christmas Puja: Recognition Ganapatipule (India)

Christmas puja. Ganapatipule (India), 27 December 1994. Merry Christmas and all the blessings for the next year. Today we are not going to have a very long puja, but there are certain things which we have to understand from the life of Christ. Christ was born in a very poor conditions, just to show that spirituality can live in any circumstances and under any problems. And He had to face so much opposition from His own clan. He was born in a Jew family and that time the Jews would not accept Him. But they did not kill Him, that’s the main point, we should understand. They did not kill Him. Under no law a multitude can kill. Is the judge, who was a Roman judge from the Roman Empire who actually ordered His death. It is very difficult to follow His life because He was absolutely a Divine personality, absolutely. And that’s why He – whatever rules and regulations He has passed for the Christians are really very difficult to follow, very difficult. I don’t think very few people are even able to follow His life. It’s very difficult because He said that if you commit any adultery with your eyes, you better take out. You cut your hand if you do any crime with it. For Him, the crime was also a very subtle thing. Turn your left cheek if somebody slaps you on the right cheek. To follow this kind of a difficult, very, very difficult thing Read More …

Shri Ganesha Puja: Innocence is the source of Love Moscow (Russia)

Shri Ganesha Puja, Moscow (Russia), 11 September 1994. Today we are going to worship Shri Ganesha.Shri Ganesha resides in Mooladhara, on the chakra, Mooladhara chakra. And not on mooladhar.In the mooladhar is placed the Kundalini. She is the mother of Shri Ganesh, we call her Gauri. Yesterday you saw the picture, the drama, how Shri Ganesha got his head of an elephant. All these things have happened in another world. There are many worlds of which we know of this world, is a question of our awareness. Now we are at a human awareness, and we have risen to a higher awareness which is called as the fourth dimension. Without Shri Ganesha it is not possible. As you know he is the symbol of innocence within us. This innocence never gets destroyed because it is eternal. But it may happen that it will get covered with some clouds by our mistakes that we commit. But once you get your realization, your innocence is re-established, it manifests. And you become innocent, your attention becomes innocent. It is impossible to follow your religion, either Christ or Mohammed-Sahib or Jews, if you do not have enlightenment.This is one thing they did not realize, because they were of a very high level people. They did not know what is the condition of human beings. As in the Bible is written that if your right eye commits sins – means goes against Shri Ganesha- you take it away. Or if your right hand does anything Read More …

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

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

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 …

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

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

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

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