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

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

Shri Fatima Puja: Women are responsible for the society Mövenpick Hotel Istanbul, Istanbul (Turkey)

Shri Fatima Puja. Istanbul (Turkey), 18 May 1993. 00:03:00(It’s all right. I hope you can hear Me all the way, can you? Come forward a little bit, perhaps.) 00:04:10Today is a very joyous that all of us are here in Turkey, to celebrate the Puja of Fatima’s. As you know about Her that She was the daughter of Mohammed Sahib and was married to Ali, and She had two children, Hassan and Hussein, who were ultimately killed in Karbala by the fanatics, who were that time called themselves Sunnis. All this happened because there were fanaticism, and the fanaticism that makes person thinks always that they are on the right and they have every right to be angry, to persuade, to convince another party, another person. And these fanaticisms grew since long – it’s not a new thing. It is so obvious now that our main problem in this world is of fanaticism. Fatima lost Her two children, and She was the embodiment of Gruha Lakshmi. She resides in our Left Nabhi. So for all the diseases that are connected with the spleen, all the problems that are connected with your Left Nabhi can be only corrected by Fatima. So you have to keep Fatima awakened within yourself. That we are here in the Islamic culture, we can say this is place of Islamic culture; and in the Islamic culture a housewife was given a very, very important place. At the time of Mohammed Sahib there were struggles and fights Read More …

Shri Pallas Athena Puja: You have to be sincere and honest Athens, Sahaja Yoga Center in Athens (Greece)

Shri Pallas Athena Puja. Athens (Greece), 26 April 1993. It’s a very great day for Me to see so many Sahaja Yogis here who are from this country, Greece. When first I came to Greece, I told my husband that this country is full of vibrations and there have been many evolved souls in this country, but perhaps the people have lost their heritage, but the vibrations are in the atmosphere and one day Sahaja Yoga should prosper here very much. And somehow, we met some bureaucrats who were Greeks and the experience was not good with them and my husband said that “If You said the Greeks are really religious people, then look at these people. What are they doing to me?” I said, “They may be bureaucrats and, all over, bureaucrats, you can’t say what sort of people they could be.” But, on the whole, the vibrations were very, very good, no doubt, and I went to all the places in here, like I went to Delphi, I went up there to see Athena’s temple and everything. To all the places of interest, they took Me round, specially Me, because he was busy with his conference, so they took Me round. And everywhere I felt – even the sea I felt was so very beautiful. This was about – I think I came here at least about fifteen years back, maybe fourteen years back. And I find now the vibrations are coming back now through you people and 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 …

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

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

Guru Puja: Gravity Campus, Cabella Ligure (Italy)

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

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

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

Easter Puja: You have to grow and take up the responsibility Magliano Sabina Ashram, Magliano Sabina (Italy)

Easter Puja. Magliano Sabina, Rome (Italy), 19 April 1992. This is a great day for all of us to rejoice and to enjoy this Resurrection of Christ. The Resurrection of Christ took place to open our Agnya center because it was a very subtle center as you know, very complicated with the ideas people had from their conditioning and from their ego, were so much clogging the Agnya Chakra that Kundalini could have been impossible to pass through. So all the play of Resurrection took place, and as Christ was nothing but chaitanya, He was resurrected from death so-called. In this death of Christ, we have to also understand that we have achieved our resurrection. We have achieved our resurrection, also whatever was supposed to be the past has died, is finished now. So, this repentance that we have, the conditionings we have are dead. But still it is very surprising that among the Christian nations, the ego did not subside as it should have been, perhaps may be that Christ was never worshipped in the right way. The ego in the West was absolutely, so dominating that nobody could see what they are doing, and how far they are going. Unnecessarily they are repenting about something that is far fetched. But repentance was meant for our ego. It’s very shocking sometimes, when you see how the Christian nations invaded other countries, completely annihilated, completely finished and destroyed races after races. They were Christians, followers of Christ, taking Bible in Read More …

Talk to Sahaja Yogis: You should never say that: “Mother said so.” Sydney (Australia)

Talk on Arrival at Burwood. Sydney (Australia), 27 February 1992. . . . but all of you are not here. It doesn’t matter. There’s a certain thing I’m discovering, that you people always say: “Mother said so, Mother said so”, and making a fundamental thing out of Sahaja Yoga. It’s not proper. You should never say that: “Mother said so.” It’s not needed at all, why to say? You all have freedom, you have absolute freedom. Because you are all Spirits, you can see for yourself and you know what is right, what is wrong; and if you commit mistakes, can be corrected also. But first thing is you should grow deeper into your Spirit, so you become absolutely free from conditionings and from egos that you have. And then, there’s nothing to, sort of, limit yourself by saying that: “Mother said so, Mother said so.” And whatever I might have said, you see, also to be understood. Like, the other day, somebody told Me that he used to meditate for half-an-hour, but then somebody said that: “Mother has said you should meditate for five minutes, ten minutes, so I stopped meditating for a longer period.” So I said: “That’s the minimum I said, the minimum, you should meditate for five minutes. That doesn’t mean that you cannot meditate for half-an-hour.” So you see that this is how people go on correcting each other: “Mother said so, in Her some nineteen-hundred-and-seventy-five or something.” That should not be. This is again, Read More …

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

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

Confusion and the ordinary householders Madras (India)

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

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

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

Have you got the ultimate reality? Madras (India)

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Guru Puja: Four Obstacles Campus, Cabella Ligure (Italy)

Shri Adi Guru Puja. Cabella Ligure (Italy), July 28th, 1991. Today, you are all here to worship your Guru. It is a common practice, specially in India, that you must worship your guru, and the guru has to fully be in control of his disciples. Guru Principle is extremely strict, and the strictness made many people could not conform to the ideals of a disciple. In those days the guru had to be, absolutely, the authority and it was the guru who would decide which disciples he’ll have. And one had to go into great tapasya, to great penances, to even become a disciple. And this hardship was the only way the guru used to judge. Gurus would always live in jungles and they would select their disciples, very few, very, very few and they had to go and beg food from the neighboring villages, and cook food for their guru with their own hands, and feed the guru. That sort of guru business is not in Sahaja Yoga. That basically we must understand that the difference between those styles of guruship and that we have now is this, that very few individuals were given the chance to become the guru, very few. And these few also were selected out of quite a lot of people and they felt that they were something really special that they are being selected, chosen, and that whatever they will have to go through is all welcome. With this idea, they became the disciples. Read More …

Sahasrara Puja: Realise Your Own Divinity Ischia (Italy)

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

Hamsa Puja: The Source of Discretion New York City (United States)

Hamsa Puja. NewYork (USA), 28 April 1991. Today we have assembled in the area of Vishuddhi. In the Gita, Shri Krishna has described the area as “Kshetra”, and the one who knows the area is called as “Kshetragna”.“Gna”, yesterday as I told you, “gna” or “gya”, means: “The one to know on your central nervous system”. So the one who is the knower of that area is the Kshetragna. Today we are going to know about the Hamsa Chakra. That is the area of, between the two eyebrows, bhrukuti [contracting the eyebrows] as they have called that. This one is placed at the base of the brain, which is called as “murdhan”, and this part is the complete controller of the whole of the base of the brain, again I say, base of the brain. And that is a part of the Vishuddhi still, which is an extremely important center as far as the human awareness is concerned. Because these two nadis, Ida and Pingala, before entering into Agnya and giving- crossing each other, part of them crosses over this chakra of Hamsa. So when the ego and superego develop in our brain and cover our limbic area, from both the sides, the strands, which are coming out of the Vishuddhi, sit on them [ego an superego]. So they also control these two institutions from outside.For example, it crosses like this, goes up like that from Hamsa, and then- some strands – then the others go up again and cross Read More …

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

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

Shri Gauri Puja Auckland (New Zealand)

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

Bhavasagara Puja: Meditation will protect you Brisbane (Australia)

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

Shri Mahavira Puja: Dead Spirits Perth (Australia)

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

Shri Rama Puja: Control your attention like Him Kolkata (India)

Shri Rama Navami Puja, Calcutta, India, 25/03/1991 [English translation from Hindi, First translation] We have gathered here on the occasion of Ram Navami. Everybody has said, “Mother please tell us about Shri Ram.” As you know that Shri Rama has taken a very important place in our chakras. He is sitting on our right heart. Shri Rama has taken a place of a father, so lack of father’s duty and love can cause a catch of this chakra. In Sahaja Yoga we can understand that Rama and all other gods came on earth with different power [shakti], they came to do their jobs. In the sense Shri Rama has a special job. Socrates has said benevolent king has to come. For that Shri Rama came. Shri Rama came in complete human form. He even forgot that he is an incarnation of Shri Vishnu. He was made to be forgotten. But he was Purushottam on earth [perfect human being]. You all must have heard of his qualities and his childhood. In Sahaja yoga when we worship any god, what quality we gain from them, which qualities we will receive? Shri Rama has many. One that he was ideal, another that he is a king. He kept his people higher than himself than his wife and children. If politicians today understand this point they wouldn’t be called selfish, they wouldn’t be selfish, would be follower of Dharma. Nobody has followed Shri Rama as a role model till today. By singing his bhajans Read More …

Sahaja Yoga: The Essential Medicine (Location Unknown)

Sahaja Yoga – The Essential Medicine Sahajayoga and essential medicine Shri Mataji Nirmaladevi- grandmother, scholar and freedom fighter. As a child she lived in Gandhiji’s ashram, as a student she studied medicine and as cry for freedom swept India she fought for her nation’s independence. The year 1970 was about her most important role. The discovery of development of sahajayoga, a movement which is now spreading in worldwide. Sahajayoga is a science of integration which results in man’s mental, physical and spiritual wellbeing. The union of mind heart and spirit is a achieve through the working of a subtle energy system within each one of us. “That you are not this body, this mind, these conditionings, this ego but we are the spirit. You don’t have to accept what I am saying blindly because blind faith leads to fanaticism. But as scientist you must keep your mind open and see for yourself what I am saying if it is so honestly you must accept it.” In today’s society this subtle energy system which has its origins in very roots of our being has been neglected. It is out of balance. Today’s physical and psychological diseases are gross expressions of a subtle system in dire need of repair and nourishment. Our collective desire of a peace and rejuvenation is a yearning coming from deep within. It is a reflection of our internal condition. “We know so much though science about our civilization our advancement . This is a advancement of a Read More …

Christmas Puja and Evening Program Ganapatipule (India)

Christma Puja Talk, Ganapatipule, India, 25-12-1990 [English Transcript] Today we have such a great opportunity, to celebrate the birth of Christ. He was born in a manger. All these things are already pre-planned. That He should be born in a manger, in difficult situations, to show that whether you are born poor or rich, whether you are born in difficulties, or in problems, if you have Divinity within you, it shines by itself. As the Christianity took a very wrong deviated, line, they have never been able to understand the significance of Christ. To them immaculate conception-conception is absolutely, not possible. Most of the people think that it’s some sort of a mythical story. But in India, we do believe that, Gauri created Shri Ganesha out of, Her own, vibrations, and that He became the Deity of Mooladhara. We accept it. But not in the West. They will never accept such a thing because, their mental side is over-developed and dominates them. Maybe, they are not so very old like Indians to understand that above all He is God. Even the concept of God is quite mental. Moreover, the way Christianity has been, it has not provided any proper guidance. On the contrary wherever they have failed, they said “It’s a mystery.”                   But, it’s very simple to understand for Indians, that anything is possible for God. After all He is God- He is God Almighty. Because of this mental attitude, which is much lower, than the knowledge of your spirit, Read More …

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

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

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

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

Shri Ganesha Puja: The Glow of Shri Ganesha Lanersbach (Austria)

Shri Ganesha Puja, Lanersbach (Austria), 26 August 1990 Today we are celebrating the birthday of Shri Ganesha. You all know the story of His birth and I need not repeat it. But, as He was created by the Mother only, by Adi Shakti, in the same way you are all created after Him. So, you are on the path of Shri Ganesha already. Your eyes sparkle the same way His eyes sparkle. You all have the beautiful glow on your face as He had. Whether you are small, big, or old makes no difference. All the beauty comes to us through the glow of Shri Ganesha. If He’s satisfied, then we don’t have to worry about any other deities, because the power of all the deities is Shri Ganesha. He’s like a vice-chancellor sitting on every chakra. Unless and until He signs, Kundalini cannot cross through, because Kundalini’s the Gauri and is the Virgin Mother of Shri Ganesh. Now we have to understand that we are here in the Western society where so much has gone wrong because we never bothered to look after Shri Ganesha. Christ came and His message spread all over the world. He talked of things which are not practised by Christians, not at all. Because whatever they started is not based on truth. The truth is that Shri Ganesha took birth as Christ. If that is the truth, then they have to understand in the light of Shri Ganesha this great incarnation of Christ. That Read More …

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

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

Shri Lakshmi Puja and Talk before puja Hydra, Stamatis Boudouris summer house (Greece)

Shri Lakshmi Puja. Hydra (Greece), 24 June 1990 . Today we are going to celebrate the Puja of Lakshmi And I’ve already told you that Lakshmi came out of the sea. And Greece is the Nabhi of the universe. And whatever Lakshmi they have got, wealth, they have got it out of the sea faring activities there. So it is very apt that we should worship Lakshmi in Greece and understand what is the significance of Lakshmi is. Can you hear me there, all of you? Now I’ve described many a time, but, again I will describe it to you. Lakshmi is the one who is a Mother by nature. So a person who has Lakshmi, a person who has got wealth must have a motherly benevolent temperament; that’s one thing. Then another thing is that She stands on the lotus in the water. So a person who has got Lakshmi must have a balance. If he moves this side or that side, left or right side he immediately goes inside the bhavasagar. Secondly, Her one hand is giving and another hand there is protection like this. So, at least a person who has got Lakshmi money should be generous, he should be giving and right hand should protect all the people who are working under him or who are related to him, his relations or other things or any other organizations or anything that he is connected with he should try to patronize and protect it from all kinds Read More …

Shri Mahavira Puja: Touch Your Depth Barcelona (Spain)

Shri Mahavira Puja, Barcelona (Spain), June 17th, 1990. Today we have gathered here to do the puja of Shri Mahavira. [Interruption for technical problems] Today we are going to do the puja of Mahavira and we never had this puja before. The reason for this was that Mahavira’s life was an ascetic’s life, just like Buddha: even more than Buddha it would be. Because at the time when these two were born, the Brahminism of the Hinduism had taken a very funny form. People had become extremely ritualistic and they were worshipping all kinds of stones and all kinds of things instead of worshipping only the swayambhu. Shri Mataji, [apart]: Who is that fellow eating food at the time [of puja]? There is a gentleman who is eating food at the time of this thing, please tell him. The ascetic life of Mahavira was of a very, very extreme nature. He was the one who was born in a clan of warriors, kshatriyas, and then He was also married. Also, He had a daughter and then He decided — because He knew He had to do the work of the Divine — He decided to take a sanyasa. So, He took the permission of his brother, because his parents were dead. He was a king, so He gave up all his material wealth, everything, and He became a complete sanyasi. And He left his family, left his house, everything, behind and went alone with a little bowl for begging alms. And the Read More …

Easter Puja: You Have To Grow Vertically Eastbourne (England)

“You have to grow vertically,” Easter Puja, Eastbourne (UK), 22 April 1990. Today we are here to worship the resurrection of Christ; and also to thank Him for giving us an ideal life of a saint who has to work for the benevolence of the whole world. We talk of Christ, we sing of Shri Ganesha, we say we believe in Him, specially Sahaj Yogis feel He is the eldest brother that they have. And a tremendous surrender I find, among Western Sahaj Yogis specially, for Christ; because they were born in Christian religion perhaps, maybe; or maybe that they found Christ’s life a very special one. But to Sahaj Yoga He has to be much more than that, and to you Sahaj Yogis. Many people believe in many deities. Like some believe in Shri Krishna, some in Shri Rama, some in Buddha, some in Mahavira and some in Christ; all over the world, they do believe in some higher being. But this belief is without the connection, to begin with, and becomes a kind of a falsehood that they think that Christ belongs to them, Rama belongs to them or Shri Krishna belongs to them, that they are the possessors of all these deities because they have obliged of believing into it. And that is how most of the faiths have come.  And, though they ardently believe in Christ, all these faiths have failed because when they believed in Christ, they believed that, through Christ, they can get their Read More …

Birthday Puja: Sincerity Curzon Hall, Sydney (Australia)

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

Shri Ganesha Puja: How Far To Go With Children Les Diablerets (Switzerland)

Shri Ganesha Puja, Les Diablerets (Switzerland), 8 August 1989 Today you have come here to worship me as Shri Ganesha. We have been singing the praise of Shri Ganesha before every puja. And we have such tremendous respect for Shri Ganesh, because we have found out that unless and until Shri Ganesha, who is the symbol of our innocence, is not awakened within us, we cannot enter into the Kingdom of God. And even to stay there and to enjoy the blessings of Shri Ganesha, we have to have our innocence fully blossoming. So we praise Him and He is very easily praised. And whatever we might have done wrong before coming to Sahaja Yoga, He completely forgives because He is the eternal child. You have seen children, when you slap them, sometimes get angry with them, they forget it. They only remember the love and not what they have suffered at your hands. ‘Till they grow up, they do not have memory of bad things done to them. From the very beginning, a child is born to a mother, he doesn’t know what he has gone through, but gradually the memory starts working and he starts restoring things within himself. But in the beginning, only he remembers what nice things have happened to him. So we always like to ponder about our childhood, what we enjoyed in our childhood. But as we start growing up we start remembering all the miseries and all the tribulations we had to go Read More …

Guru Puja: Creativity Lago di Braies (Italy)

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

Paramchaitanya Puja Taufkirchen (Germany)

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

Shri Mahakali Puja: Let us get very powerful Ganesha Shakti Vancouver, Ambleside ashram in West Vancouver (Canada)

Shri Mahakali Puja, Vancouver (Canada). 17 June 1989, morning. So, today, in the city of Vancouver, we have gathered here to pray for the country of Canada, and also for the Canadian people. Also, we have to know that there are lots of negative forces working, and there has to be some puja to be done, to the Mahakali force. And so, I thought today, ‘Let’s have the puja for Mahakali’. So, Mahakali puja is the same as you do the Devi’s puja, but first the Mahakali force came on this earth. Adi Shakti came as Mahakali and created Shri Ganesha. Then She ascended as Mahasaraswati, and with that force, She created the whole universe. In that, She created this world in a very beautiful manner with great arrangements and organizing. And on that were born human beings because the temperature and all that was made very congenial for human beings. So, this climate has also played a big part on the temperament of the people, on the seeking of the people. Like in India, we can say, the climate is very congenial for meditation. It is been a traditional country from ancient times, but from the very beginning we have had seers who were seeking the truth, in the jungles. The reason is this that, in India its climate is so good that you can live in a jungle, no problem. So, it was easy for them to get rid of all the superficialities of life and to take Read More …

Sahasrara Puja: Jump Into the Ocean of Joy Sorrento (Italy)

Sahasrara Puja, “Jump into the Ocean of Love”, Sorrento (Italy) 6 May 1989. Last night was a night of complete darkness, that they call it as amavasya; and just now only the first phase of the moon has started. Today we are here to celebrate the day when the Sahasrara was opened out. Also you have seen in the photograph. It was actually a photograph of my brain, which showed how the Sahasrara was opened out. The light of the brain now could be photographed. It’s something great these modern times have done. So the modern times have brought a lot of things which can prove the existence of the Divine. Also it can prove about me. It can convince you what I am. This is very important because, in the modern times, this advent has to be recognised, has to be fully recognised. This is one of the conditions for all the Sahaja Yogis.  Now let’s see what’s happening in the modern times, in the brains of the people. In the brains of the people today, if you see, there is an attack on the Sahasrara. There has been an attack since long but in the modern times it’s the worst time. They are trying to make the limbic area very insensitive. Very depressive novels, very depressive thoughts and very depressive music, you can say, like Greek tragedy nonsense. All these things came from the medieval period till, we should say, this new age has started. That one itself was no good Read More …

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

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

Adi Shakti Puja: the steadiness of the mind is very important for the marriages Residence of Madhukar Dhumal, Rahuri (India)

Adi Shakti Puja: Detachment, Rahuri (India), 11 December 1988. Puja has to start at the time when it has to start. I’ve been waiting and waiting and waiting, then I realised that today is a very good time according to the calendar; but it is not in the morning, so it had to be the third day of the moon. And as the moon is changing it’s phases in the day time, we had to wait till it started. I think, all these things have happened, of the theft and everything has happened, perhaps, to delay the Puja up to the point where it should start. So, in Sahaja Yoga we all go beyond time and we don’t have to worry about the timing. Only when it’s a formal function or something, because the people are formal, they don’t understand our styles. So we have to be present there at right time, otherwise we should just allow the time to take its own course and we should move in our own way. Now for our travel and this tour, we have to realise that we are here to achieve a certain amount of height in our detachment. We have to rise into the realm of our state, while the circumstances around us, they’re surrounding us and they should not make us unhappy, or biased, or we should not react to them. On the contrary we should try to rise above that. If there are no events of mishaps, then you Read More …

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

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

Guru Puja: The Gravity of Guru Principle Camping Borda d'Ansalonga, Ansalonga (Andorra)

Guru Puja, The Gravity of Guru Principle, Ansalonga, Andorra, July 31st, 1988 Today we have all gathered here for worshipping your Guru. As you know that the principle of Guru resides in the Void. This is the principle which gives you balance, which gives you a gravity. The gravity that we have in the Mother Earth is expressed through your Guru Principle. The first point of gravity is that you should have a personality, a character and a temperament [such] that people would see that you are a personality who doesn’t get dissolved into worldly things. It’s a personality which doesn’t get ruined by the skirmishes of life. Is the personality of a guru which sits down deep into his being and is not easily disturbed or dissolved by any solvent whatsoever. This is the first principle of the Guru – is the gravity. As I told you, it is something which cannot be dissolved into anything. It settles very deep down into a personality. So it doesn’t float in the water. Now, you see in the countries which are developed very much, we think that we have a very great power of individual attainment, that individually we are absolutely free [and] we can do whatever we like; and that’s why individual freedom becomes the goal of all democratic countries, neglecting the collective. Of course, [the] individual is important, and it has to become all right to nourish the collective. But if the individual does not have the gravity, then Read More …

Shri Buddha Puja: He is the one who is in charge of your ego YMCA Camp Surf, San Diego (United States)

Shri Buddha Puja. San Diego (USA), 23 July 1988. Today we have decided to celebrate the Buddha Jayanti, it’s the day of Buddha’s birth. In the whole map of time, Buddha came to this earth at a time when it was so important for Him to come. That time, especially in India, we had two types of people: one, who were very ritualistic, trying to be extremely strict and disciplined; and the another were the people who were too much conditioned and were full of so-called devotion to God. So these two types of people were occupying the area of seekers. So it was necessary to neutralize these two styles of seekings. Buddha and Mahavira are, in essence, supported by Hanumana and Bhairava – that is, as you know, Gabriel and Saint Michael. The principle that took birth is the principle of a disciple, and this principle was born much earlier as the two sons of Shri Rama. This principle was brought on this earth and incarnated: one, to conquer the ego of human beings; another one, to conquer the superego of human beings. Buddha, when He was born, He found that there was misery everywhere. And the misery, according to Him, was due to the desires we have. So to be desireless is the best way to achieve Nirvana. That’s what He came to conclusion. But how to become desireless? You are sitting in the sand, and if you see, the sand doesn’t get attached to anything. You put Read More …

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

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

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

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

Makar Sankranti Puja Mumbai (India)

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

Sahasrara Puja: Mother, it’s all Yours Thredbo Alpine Hotel, Thredbo (Australia)

Sahasrara puja. Thredbo (Australia), 3 May 1987. Today is a very great day for all the Sahaja yogis. It was a long time back that I desired Sahasrara should be opened out. But waiting for a right time. It was important to do it at the right time. A boy in Aurangabad, quite young, asked Me a question, “Mother, this All-pervading Power of Brahmachaitanya is beyond senses, you cannot feel it through senses. How is it we are now feeling it through our senses?” This is the question he asked, and I ask you the same question. Before this, those people who got Realisation could not talk about it in the way you can tell people, that you can feel it on your senses. They could not explain, they could not put it into experience. Just what they did was to tell them in words, words which were telling about something – like the taste of mango, unless and until you eat the mango how will you know the taste? By just knowing about “It’s wonderful, it’s great, it’s fantastic,” still you have not tasted the mango. So, “what has happened now?” was the question. Another thing was that these people got so fed up, like Gyaneshwara at the age of twenty-one, he took a samadhi. He went into a room and closed the doors and settled down there, and he died there. All of them [did the same]  – even Christ got Himself crucified – because they could tell Read More …

Makar Sankranti Puja: Carry The Sun With You Residence of Madhukar Dhumal, Rahuri (India)

Makar Sankranti Puja. English part and Marathi part, Rahuri (India), 14 January 1987. Today is the day where we celebrate the change of the axis of the Sun and that He moves towards the tropic of cancer. Tropic of cancer is the one which represents the motherhood, the motherhood of the earth. This tropic of Cancer has passed through quite a big area of land while the tropic of Capricorn has not. And the area through which it has passed, it has created different beautiful manifestation of the motherhood qualities on this earth. We celebrate this change because the Sun has now moved into the new dimension so that all over the world there will be the warmth of the Sun. Warmth of the Sun represents the warmth of God’s love. This is the reason why we celebrate this festival by giving you some sort of a sweet made out of sesame seeds. Sesame seeds are given because they are also heat giving and now as we are coming from the cold, we come to the hot season in a way, hotter season, so to prepare you with that warmth of the Sun these special things are made out of the seed of sesame to represent the oncoming warmth and the warm of the sun. Though in India the heat is too much, still people are waiting for this time to come in and they celebrate it with such a warm heart. At this time it is said that they Read More …

Christmas Puja Pune (India)

Christmas Puja, Pune (India) 25 December 1986. [English Transcript] Today we have all been waiting to celebrate the birth of our Lord Jesus Christ. There’s so much significant that we are in a place here, the same type of a hut Jesus had when He was born, and the wind was blowing from all sides and it was difficult to keep the room very warm, though if it is correct He was not born in the month of December, in a warmer month, not so very cold, maybe this much as you see; so maybe that the climate of today is quite significant, with the climate that He must have felt. As for you people, you don’t feel any discomfort in this climate, nor in these surroundings nor in the Spartan living. He never felt any discomfort, nor His Mother. When our attention is on our Spirit, then we do not feel the discomfort of nature or of worldly things. This is the first sign when a Sahaja Yogi starts complaining about comforts, then the first sign is that he is not a Sahaja Yogi as yet. To begin with you just get absolutely acclimatized with the climate and enjoy the style, the speed, the way it is molding you. There’s no friction between the nature and the body because the Spirit which is synchronizer, helps you to become one with this nature and enjoy the best part of it. The way you are enjoying it shows that you are Read More …
