Shri Mahalakshmi Puja: We have to live like one family Moscow (Russia)

Shri Mahalakshmi Puja. Moscow (Russia), 16 July 1996. Tonight, we are going to worship the Lakshmi Principle within us. Lakshmi is the Goddess of wealth, prosperity and also of health Actually your country is already blessed, because you have so many things here. Firstly, this country has got such a lot of petrol and if discoveries are made there’s much more. Then secondly, you have got beautiful timber. Then thirdly you’ve got lot of steel, very lot of steel, very good steel. Also you have diamonds. So many things you have, apart from that you have so much of art [heart?]. Also gold you have. So all these things are in abundance in this country. Only thing is you don’t yet have somebody who will manage to get to you people. I’m sure it will work out. But in Sahaja Yoga, we have to know that this Principle of Lakshmi,gives us a great sense of satisfaction. If you don’t have satisfaction then any amount of Lakshmi cannot help you. One becomes very greedy. You have something but you want to have more and more and more; and for that one adopts all kinds of methods and measures. Thus you also have, a very bad Mafia system here,who are very greedy. For Sahaja Yogis, one has to realise that he does not have to achieve anything he’s already achieved. First people try to seek food, in the Nabhi Chakra then they eat that is Swaha then it is being retained in Read More …

Shri Mahalakshmi Puja: You have come to Sahaja Yoga to ascend National Palace of Culture, Sofia (Bulgaria)

Shri Mahalakshmi puja. Sofia (Bulgaria), 8 September 1993. Today is a great day when we are celebrating Mahalakshmi’s Puja. You must be knowing that today is the day of Mary, mother of Christ, who was Mahalakshmi. Mahalakshmi’s incarnation is very important for Sahaja Yoga. First She establishes our dharma by which we become righteous, we become religious in the real sense. After the light of realisation we cannot do anything that is not dharma. As you know what is dharma is, and the maryadas, the boundaries of our behavior. This transformation takes place automatically. I don’t have to tell you, “Don’t do this, don’t do this,” like ten commandments. You, yourself, establish your dharma and you enjoy your virtues. This happens, as you know – already has happened to all of you – with the grace of Mahalakshmi. Then She starts bestowing blessings on you. First, the blessing is of physical well-being by which your parasympathetic nervous system gets into proper shape and a balance is established, as if the Mahalakshmi principle holds the reins and you cannot cross the limits, you cannot go too much to the left or to the right. By this principle you realise what is wrong with the outside religions, you realise also that inside all the religions are born like flowers on the same of tree of spirituality. And automatically you start worshipping all the prophets right from Abraham, Moses, Confucius, Lao Tse, Mohammed Sahib, Nanak. You worship them! It is not that you Read More …

Shri Mahalakshmi Puja: The Universal Love or 31st Kalwa (India)

Shri Mahalakshmi Puja. Kalwa (India), 30 December 1992. Transcript of English Talk: I would say those who have been worrying and all that should go into great meditation and understand that you are insulting yourself. You are saints. Why should you worry about what plane you are going to get, what you are not going to get? Shows that your level is very low, definitely. All those who have worried you have come here under My protection and you will go back under My protection! I got so sick this morning that I was thinking we’ll not have any pujas. You must know that you are all part and parcel of My being, I have put you into My body and you have to behave yourself. On such an auspicious day, when we have all come here, to do this special puja. I would say this should be called as a Mahalakshmi Puja, because it’s something to do with the industry of this country and of the whole world. Unless and until all the human ventures are connected with God, they cannot get their perfect stage and their status. That’s why we have problems now in the West. Supposed to be very clever people, very smart, very well equipped, well educated, we are having recessions and things, because they have no balance! They don’t know that there is God’s power which works everything. And when we neglect that, this is what’s happen to you. Now, for any venture that we Read More …

Shri Mahalakshmi Puja: Keep your Mahalakshmi principle intact Barcelona, Can Mas-casa de colónies (Spain)

Shri Mahalakshmi Puja. Barcelona (Spain) 30 September 1992. Today we have gathered here to do Mahalakshmi Puja. Mahalakshmi principle is a very important principle within us. When in the countries or in the families or in individual lives, we find- (Somebody must translate, I think better because they don’t understand). So this Mahalakshmi principle is the most important thing for our ascent. This principle is within us but is not awakened before we have achieved a certain amount of situation where we find that we are not yet satisfied with our life. Like in the West now, you had blessings of the Laxmi principle, in the sense there is affluence, people are alright, everybody has food and are sufficient in their every day to day life. But countries which are very poverty stricken or who are in very bad shape, like you can say now Yugoslavia these days is like that, in a very bad shape, or a country, Somalia, which is very, so poor and they have no spiritual background either. So for them, this life is just meant for somehow or other to survive, just to survive. Like this is a life of crisis they have, they have still to exist in their lives, you see, so it’s a crisis for them. But in the affluent countries, it so happens that people start feeling that now, we have got this money, we’ve got all the comfort of life, but still it’s not giving us the joy of life. Read More …

Shri Mahalakshmi Puja: When you are in the center you don’t think, you are in meditation Kolhapur (India)

Shri Mahalakshmi Puja. Kolhapur (Maharashtra-India), Hindi Talk, 21 December 1990. This way the three and a half shakthi (Kundalini) is residing in Maharashtra, and also the Shri Chakra is residing here.All of you know that in the central path resides Mahalakshmi and also the Kundalini is awakened in the central path. For thousands of years in this Mahalakshmi temple it is recited (chanted) UDO UDO AMBE to awaken the Amba Kundalini and the kundalini shakthi in Mahalakshmi gets awakened. For this the Amba who resides in this Mahalakshmi temple arises.Kolasur was killed here and that’s why the name Kolapur. There was a rakshasa named Kolasur and he was killed here and from thename Kolasur it is named Kolapur.Wherever you go to the temples where the prithvi tattwa (Mother Earth) has created the swayambhu statues, there, completely people started making money out of it, because of this there will be less of Chaitanya (vibrations).Now you have come (sahajayogis) and it is possible again the Mahalakshmi (vibrations) get purified. Sushmna nadi is made in the way as the three nadis and behind there is a very subtle nadi and it is called Brahma nadi. The Kundalini gets first awakened in this nadi. From this subtle Brahma nadi it passes and awakens (opens) the Brahmarandra. By awakening the Brahmarandra the self realisation starts, so in this special way Kundalini’s central path is made.Whatever is the obstacle (badhas) slowly, slowly the Kundalini awakening steadies itself through meditation. In Sahaja Yoga first we reach the peak (top) after we settle down. First we go to the top… [After this one phrase, the words are not audible and Mother tells the Maharashtrians in marathi how everybody 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 Mahalakshmi Puja: It is very difficult to trigger things if there’s no perfect instrument Auckland (New Zealand)

Shri Mahalakshmi Puja in Auckland, New Zealand, 12 March 1990. I’m very happy to be here with you, after such a long time and I missed you all very much. I know you are very far away from the rest of them but you are always in My heart and you shouldn’t worry about the distance. We have to realize that we have entered into a new, a…. This kind of hands you should [HAVE, HAND], not to hang, if you have to sit properly. You have to understand that we have now entered into the Kingdom of God and our culture has to change, our style has to change, our understanding has to change. Unless until we change, nobody’s going to take us seriously. Moreover it’s very difficult to trigger things if there’s no perfect instrument. As you know that I went to Russia second time for the Yoga seminar, where we had people from all over the Eastern Block. That was My idea, to get them there. And they were from every country, about two or three people, only. And very strong, very deep, very understanding. I spoke hardly for 30 minutes and such a miracle, in fifteen minutes I gave them Realization, about ten minutes and five minutes I was just there, and all of them got practically Realization, all of them. Very surprising. And so deeply, when I walked out of the room, they all came after Me. That you don’t see in western countries, that 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 Mahalakshmi Puja, Morning Trees and Willy Maes's House, Mechelen (Belgium)

Shri Mahalakshmi Puja, Mechelen (Belgium), 9 October 1987. It was so very nice to come to Belgium and have so many people for our program and I must say, now we are getting to people who are very sensitive. [translation follows – yes] It is a .. it is a new dimension I think, I feel, we are entering into. Because now we are really getting people who are seriously interested in their realization and are very respectful. And that aggressiveness is much less. You don’t find anybody being aggressive. So we can say, that now the road is paved for all of you to work it out in a Sahaj manner to bring them properly to Sahaja Yoga and settle them nicely. Now this Sahaj manner should be understood. In a Sahaj manner, when they come to you, you must know they are absolutely new to Sahaja Yoga. So first and foremost thing, you should not talk about Me. You should not tell them anything about Me; but you have to tell them about Sahaja Yoga and about yourself. Like you can say, “I had the same problem as you have.” Or you can say that “See, it took me more time then it took you.” It’s a little lie, but doesn’t matter. [Shri Mataji laughs.] You see, because first of all, you must understand human beings. If you tell them directly “You are bad” or “You are evil; you are bootish” then they will run away, though it Read More …

Shri Mahalakshmi Puja: Keep a balance on the Nabhi chakra Oude Stadsfeestzaal, Mechelen (Belgium)

Shri Mahalakshmi Puja. Malines (Belgium), 20 September 1986. Today we are going to worship the principle of Mahalakshmi in Belgium. Belgium has a speciality that it creates glass bangles for the Mother. That is, the bangles which are used as a beautiful musical accompaniment to the gait, to all the movements of the Goddess. It brings a delicacy in a woman; and gives a consciousness to the man or the men that there are ladies around. And the ladies are around who are married ladies, are very auspicious. And this auspiciousness is the one that is going to bring in this country or in any country whatsoever all the blessings. Also in Sanskrit language a bangle is called as Valaya, and that is the last stage which one has to reach in one’s ascent. That means the complete. Also, we are having here a puja for Holland which is the Jala Devata, is the Goddess of water. It comes from the word “marine”, the word Mary, Maria. All these words come from the word “marine”. In Holland as you know, the sea is above the land. We can say that the Guru is sitting at a higher position than the chela. And His knowledge is channelized into various channels. And all the wealth, the money, that is earned out of marine activities flow through the greatness of this ocean. So Dutch people are highly blessed people. They are very tall because Dattatreya is a very tall personality. (Laughter) And if Read More …

Shri Mahalakshmi Puja: Ascent Is The Main Attention Sangli (India)

Shri Mahalakshmi Puja. Sangli (India), 6 January 1986. I hope you all enjoyed your stay in Ganapatipule. The problem was that we could not arrange the cooking nearer your stay when you were here to walk a lot. But that walking was, I think, quite nice and must have helped you. It’s good for diarrhea and other problems that you have. Actually, I had seen the place but I hadn’t seen the, all the hostels and residential places. But for your information now somebody has donated Me one acre of land free, free of cost, next to the sea on the other side. It’s beautiful. And you should all send him a letter of thanks for that. So for next year I’m sure we can organize something much better, in a much more collective way. Now the next tour is going to be, as you know, via Pune, Rahuri, Akluj. And these places are of more importance to us, because Rahuri is a place where My forefathers ruled, so it’s a very powerful place, because they were great Devi bhaktas. Also all the Naths, like Machindranath, Gorakhnath, all these great evolved souls called as avadutas who were incarnations of the great Primordial Masters, worked in that area. They are the ones who talked of kundalini to begin with, openly. Then Pune, as you know, is called as Punyapattanam, is a very holy place since ages. And then you’ll be going to a place called Nira, which is a river named Read More …

Shri Mahalakshmi Puja: She connects you to God Munich (Germany)

Shri Mahalakshmi Puja. Munich (Germany), 8 September 1984 Today is a great day of Mahalakshmi Puja. Mahalakshmi is an incarnation of the Lakshmi, the power of Vishnu. She only incar­nated. This Mahalakshmi principle is born out of the Lakshmi, who is the power of Sri Vishnu. When in a human being the desire to rise higher comes in, the Lakshmi principle becomes the Mahalakshmi principle. Like in the West, we can say, people have affluence of Lakshmi, so they wanted to rise above that principle and become Mahalakshmi. In the awareness it acts on the matter like aesthetics. People worry more about aesthetics than about possessions. And when they start growing higher and higher in their awareness of seeking, then they find that the attention should be such, that they should pay more im­portance to the aesthetics of things than to the gross values. Now when this desire becomes evident in human beings, then only Lakshmi incarnates as Mahalakshmi. So, she incarnated as Mahalakshmi when Rama came on this earth, first time. And also, she incarnated as Radha when Shri Krishna came on this earth. And when she came as Mary, it was Mahalakshmi who bore the child that is Lord Jesus Christ. So, the child she bore was the great personality of Mahavishnu. This Mahavishnu tattwa is also represented, or we can say, has an aspect of others which in­carnated on this earth as two children of Sita. They incarnated as Mahavira and Buddha, as Hassan and Hussein. Also, Read More …

Shri Mahalakshmi Puja: The innermost stream of Brahmanadi Kolhapur (India)

“The innermost stream of Brahmanadi” Shri Mahalakshmi Puja, Kolhapur (India), 3 February 1984. So we are all here now in this sacred place called Kolhapur. The Goddess killed the asura called Kolhasura here, who was a very bad demon; who was born again recently, but he died also.So thank God the death of Kolhasura has taken place!This place, specially, is marked because from the Mother Earth the Mahalakshmi energy was emitted specially from the deity of Mahalakshmi.And, as you know that, Mahalakshmi is the ascending power within us, through which we ascend.It’s like the staircase which takes you into the Realm of God, and so it is very important.And Maharashtra’s deity is Vitthala, Shri Krishna. Because it is the ascending power of Vishnu, to Shri Krishna, then Mahavishnu and then to Sahasrara.All this is possible because we have got Mahalakshmi channel within us. If you did not have sushumna we would have been like animals only.Even animals have this channel up to a point.As you know they can come up to the Void.But after the Void the ascent as human being starts through this Mahalakshmi energy within us.So this energy is very important and that one is very much worshipped in this country. First this energy starts working within us as seeking: seeking shelter and food.Once the shelter is established, which is established through the Mahakali Shakti. I mean when it is in the heart of an animal — a sense of security is established — then he starts seeking Read More …

Mother Earth and Mahalakshmi Puja Surbiton Ashram, Surbiton, London (England)

Mother Earth and Mahalakshmi Puja, Surbiton Ashram (England), 21 August 1983. Some of you who cannot sit on the ground can bring some chairs from inside. You can get a chair for yourself. If you people cannot sit on the ground, go and get some chairs for yourselves. Sit down. (Shri Mataji speaks in Hindi) Shri Mataji: Today, we have to know something about the connection of Sahaja Yoga with this Mother Earth. It is very important, that we must understand the value of the Mother Earth. She has been very kind to all of you. She has been sucking your vibrations. She has been, otherwise also, She has given you everything that you see around. So today, we have to understand the connection and the symbolic expression of the Mother Earth within ourselves. I’ve told you before also that Kundalini, which is in three and a half coils is placed within the triangular bone. Now this abode of the Kundalini is called as Mooladhara and is represented in the universe as this Mother Earth or in the puja it is represented as the Kumbha. I don’t know if you have made the Kumbha or not? Sahaja Yogi: Yes Shri Mataji. Shri Mataji: Have you? The Kumbha is sitting here So far, in the movement of our consciousness, we have been trying to understand the God Almighty and all other five elements that we call as important. Shri Mataji: What is it? Sahaja Yogi: I think the mic is not Read More …

Shri Mahalakshmi Puja: Mahalakshmi tattva Kolhapur (India)

Shri Mahalakshmi puja. Kolhapur (India), 1 January 1983. [Starts at 5:55] Today again is a new year’s day, every new year comes, because we have to take to something that is new. It has been so arranged that the sun has to move for 365 days and again a new year has to come. Actually the whole solar system is moving in a spiral way. So, there is definitely a higher, higher state of this solar system. Every year it is rising higher in a spiral way. So it is not only that it is because 365 days have passed, but because it has moved a step forward higher than what it was. Now, we can see that in awareness, human beings have definitely risen much higher than what they were, say, about 2000 years back. But the first system that started, the whole universe, was the first model, we can say, was created. And that model has to be perfect and that was a perfect model which then started perfecting the rest of it. So, that is the perfect model which is in the principle of this ascent and that is working out this ascent. Now the perfection of the rest of the universe takes place in various directions but today we have to consider the Mahalakshmi Principle. Now Mahalakshmi, as I told you, is a perfect principle, is a perfect principle, it’s perfected. It is born as perfect, will remain as perfect. It will be always eternally perfect Read More …
