Talk Sydney airport (Kingsford Smith), Sydney (Australia)

Talk in transit to Canberra, Sydney Airport. 11 February 1992.
We had this Ganesha Puja, and I really spoke very nicely on equilibrium. And the rain, expressed its equilibrium, but when they were singing, it was very quiet.

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 even to stay there and to enjoy the blessings of Shri Ganesha, […]

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

Diwali Puja, “Power of Innocence”. Lecco (Italy), 25 October 1987.
First – we bow to Shri Ganesha because Shri Ganesha is the source of innocence within us. So actually we bow to innocence within us. And this innocence is the one [that] gives you the enlightenment. As I told you yesterday the light has innocence, but this is innocent without knowledge. But your light is innocent with knowledge. We always think that the people who have got knowledge can never be innocent, […]

[extract from about 1hr 1min on the video]
[Inaudible]… But one thing, we must make it sure that those children who study there, they must pay for it, because, you see, what happens that it should just that the money be paid there, it’s finished there. That money can be recovered and can be used for some other purpose. Otherwise, sometimes in Sahaja Yoga it happens that people just send their children and do not pay for it; […]
