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 …

Birthday Puja: Divine Love New Delhi (India)

Birthday Puja. Delhi (India), 21 March 2000. [English Transcript] I’m so very filled with joy and My heart is so full of gratitude for all the Sahaja Yogis who have been able to create this beautiful place. I cannot imagine how much they must have been worked hard in such a place, to create such a beautiful area, such a blissful place. How in Sahaja Yoga, people worked together with tremendous love and respect with each other, have produced something that it unbelievable! This was just a wilderness and you have brought so much of life and light in this place. You wanted to celebrate My Birthday. I don’t know what is such a significance about it. But, the way you have really shown your understanding and respect, I’m just enamoured. I can’t understand what I have done for you, that you should do so much for Sahaja Yoga. As it is, today is also a very auspicious day, which we call as Holi. They play Holi on this day and show their love and oneness among themselves. This is the time when we have to really understand the value of love, of respect of others. Because, so far, we have based all our theories and all our ideas on the principle that human beings cannot love each other. They are always trying to overpower others or to hate others or to grab things from others. Such a wrong idea we had all these days. And that’s why all the Read More …

Guru Puja: Assimilating the Absolute Knowledge Campus, Cabella Ligure (Italy)

Guru puja, “Assimilating the Absolute Knowledge”, Cabella Ligure (Italy), 1 August 1999. Since we have come to Cabella, it is the ten years completed! So you can imagine how, in these ten years, we have been able to progress in Sahaja Yoga. Now, today, we are going to have a Guru puja. As I have said, you are all gurus and you want to worship me as your Guru – is alright – but the main thing one should understand [is] that you have become guru, no doubt, because you have the knowledge. You have the Absolute Knowledge, and so we can say you have become gurus, no doubt. But one has to understand that you have reached a state where you can raise the Kundalini, you can give Realisation to others. Also you know what is the Absolute Knowledge. To know the Absolute Knowledge is very important and to assimilate is even much more important. Though we know the Absolute Knowledge, we cannot assimilate it that well. That means we cannot go deep into it. What is the reason for that? We have to realise that we have all come out of the heritage that was the animal kingdom. From the animal kingdom you have evolved. So, there are so many things of the animal heritage [that] linger in us: the aggressiveness, the domination, peevishness, fear, grabbing. All these are our inheritance and they are within us, lingering. We want to grab things of others; not you people, of Read More …

Advice, Picnic Richmond Park, Surrey (England)

Advice at yogis. Richmond Park, Surrey (UK), 25 June 1995. In the nature one goes absolutely thoughtless. For me it is such a pleasure to meet you all here under the trees. There is a beautiful atmosphere created by these trees. How much they work hard for us – think about that. All is built-in, in them, built in to produce this chlorophyll, this greenery. All that is built in, in them. But see how collective they are. You have to learn a lot from them. Every leaf is allowed to get the sun, every leaf. How they grow, how they are organized, how they behave like this, nobody thinks even – and what is it working it out in them? They haven’t got realization, but how do they work it out in such a beautiful manner? Because they are under the complete control of the Divine – absolutely, they don’t have to worry. Even the animals are, that’s why they are called as Pashu, means they are under the complete Pash. Pash is the complete control of the Divine and Shiva is called as Pashupati, he’s the one who looks after all this. Affectionately and in a very delicate manner. All this is created for human beings. These human beings don’t understand that all this world, which is created, is for the use of human beings, not for abuse – but use. And this is one thing which has to be really felt in this atmosphere, that how they Read More …

Birthday Felicitations New Delhi (India)

Birthday Felicitations. New Delhi (India), 21 March 1995 The great son of India, Mr Seshan, all the respected friends and guests, all My children Sahaja Yogis: It is true that Chaitanya organizes many things which are most unexpected. I have been a great admirer of Mr. Seshan. I saw a new rising sun, hope for Me. As you know My past that My father, My mother, sacrificed everything to get freedom in this country. Also, as you know about My life how I worked very hard as a young girl.But when we got our freedom I don’t know what happened to us. We forgot many things. One of them was Gandhiji, with whom I have lived as a little child, who loved Me very much; and he said, “Let our country be free. First let our country be free. People who are slaves cannot talk of emancipation.” We became free quite all right, but then – I don’t understand how – people did not realize their responsibility. Some of them who were very sincere thought it’s impossible to work out anything in this country. Then, to My surprise, I saw Shri Lal Bahadur Shastri, who was a realized soul. He knew Me very well, and I was hoping that he will work out the spiritual side of our country and will try to bring a great name for this great yoga Bhumi. India, as you know very well, is really a country where so many saints, Incarnations, poets, of such 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 …

8th Day of Navaratri: What We Have To Do Within Ourselves, Talk After the Puja Complexe sportif René Leduc, Meudon (France)

Ashtami Puja, Eighth day of Navaratri, Meudon, Paris (France), 30 September 1984. Today is the eighth day of Navaratri, and it is great day for Sahaja Yogis because it is the most important time, period. That is, the seventh centre, we have crossed, and we are on the eighth centre. We need not think about the Goddess what She did on the eighth day, we have to think today what we have to do within ourselves. After crossing the seventh day, after crossing the seventh chakra- that is the real ascent in your spiritual ascent. What are we to do on the eighth one? It’s so Sahaja that today should be the Ashtami, because that is the day the Goddess killed so may evil doers, and devils and Rakshasas. She did it on Her own, alone. Now these evil forces are manifesting in human beings. They have spread out. They are within us. So we all have to fight those forces within us. The war is within ourselves, is not without. First when you ascend the seventh chakra and you are on the eighth step, you have to remember first you have to fight those forces within ourselves. You are all very intelligent people; bit too intelligent sometimes. So whatever I say you may twist it, and may try to use it in your own intelligence. But it is not in your well-being. It is not for your ‘hita’, for your good. You want to use it because you think Read More …

Shri Ganesha Puja: Prepare Yourself for Puja Kennolyn Camps, Santa Cruz (United States)

Shri Ganesha Puja During 3 Day Seminar for new People, Seminar Day 2, Santa Cruz, California (USA). 2 October 1983. [Part 1] When you are all meditative and inside I also find it difficult to be outside. So today you have arranged to have this puja here. Just before that you have to prepare yourself physically and mentally. Physically you must give yourself a bandhan and a bandhan is nothing but, that you give yourself a protection to your aura. How you do it is very simple which I will tell you just now how to do it and then you sit down for your puja. Then mentally you have to put yourself right. First of all, you should not feel guilty at all. If you are guilty, you cannot do my puja. So you should be absolutely above that. There should be no tension in your mind. You are not guilty; you are in the present. See like flowers, you are looking. How can flowers be guilty? First get out of that guilt business. You should not feel guilty or tensed up. Everything that is done is the best. You shouldn’t worry about it. It’s not your responsibility even to arrange it. Just think that everything is done sahaj. Gradually when you’ll move in Sahaja Yoga, you’ll be surprised to see how things are arranged just beautifully. When these people just were finding out a place there was no place for less than $250 each. They said this is Read More …

Shri Krishna Puja: Most Dynamic Power of Love Bharatiya Vidya Bhavan, Mumbai (India)

28 August 1973, Shri Krishna Puja, Most Dynamic Power of Love, Mumbai (India) … by the Divine. For example, if I know only my head, that is not sufficient. If I know only my neck, that is not sufficient. If I know only my legs, that is not sufficient. But the more I know about myself, the more dynamic I become, the more expansive I become. And all the great that existed — or all the people who were called as great — are great because they lived in many human beings. I feel that warmth in the atmosphere, as you are feeling because you know they are not foreigners, they are your brothers and sisters. There are so many stories in Puranas like this, that… I will not name it, but once two brothers met in a jungle. But they thought that they were enemies, and they wanted to fight with each other. And when they came to blows, they couldn’t hit each other. Then they took out their arrows — the arrows wouldn’t work. They were quite surprised at this, and when they asked each other, “Who is your mother?”, they found out mother was the same. And then they realized that they were not foreigners neither enemies but they were made of the same fibre. What sweetness, what beauty that knowledge has given them! And what security of understanding that everywhere in the whole world we have brothers and sisters, who are on their inner being, on Read More …
