Makar Sankranti. Pratishtan (India), 2008.
Makar Sankranti Puja Talk (translated from Marathi). Pratishthan, Pune (India), 14 January 2002.
The meaning of Makar Sankranti is “Sankram” [“transition” in Sankrit], i.e. the day that brings about some change. On this day the sun starts its movement towards the northern hemisphere. In India all the festivals are according to the position of the moon. That’s why their dates are different in different years. Makar Sankranti is based on the position of the sun and that is the reason this festival is celebrated every year on 14th January. […]

Therefore, hope you will spread Sahaja Yoga. It is very important – because you know my vision is too big and you have to really work hard to fulfill my vision. […]
Shri Hanumana puja. Pune (India), 31 March 1999.
Today we are celebrating Hanumana’s Jayanti (Hanumana’s birthday).

Generally such a powerful person becomes rightsided and considers himself so high that he would not listen to anyone else. But Hanumana is a special deity, a typical deity full of qualities. There was a perfect balance between his devotion and power. How could he achieve this balance is a thing to be understood. […]
