Adi Shakti Puja: You Have to Become Fragrant Campus, Cabella Ligure (Italy)

Adi Shakti Puja, Cabella Ligure, 24 June 2007.   It is very nice to see you all again here. I think this is the first Puja that we are having in this place and I hope you are all comfortable and convenient for you to come here.   Today is really a very great day. It’s an Adi Shakti, to celebrate Adi Shakti and what is the origin of this Adi Shakti. I’ve never talked about it. This is the first time I’ll tell you that Adi Shakti is the Primordial Mother, is the power, power of God, that wanted to create this world. And She Herself managed to create this great world.   (Can’t you all sit down? There’s no space for them or what? Please be seated. Why are they standing? There are chairs behind you. It’s alright you can sit on chairs.   This is all falling down (refers to microphone).   As far as possible be comfortable. Don’t strain yourselves unnecessarily. I hope you all find some place to be seated comfortably.)   So today I’m going to tell you about Adi Shakti which is a very, very ancient subject. Adi Shakti is the power of God Himself and She created this world to bring His kingdom on this Earth.   You can imagine it was, there was nothing but darkness and out of this darkness She had to create all these beautiful, picturous trees and all kinds of vegetation. That She did create. But what Read More …

Adi Shakti Puja: Be One With Yourself First Campus, Cabella Ligure (Italy)

Adi Shakti Puja, Cabella Ligure, 6 June 2004. Today’s meeting is very special. It’s a very, very special day also, extremely special and very blissful. The reason is it talks and sings and tells about the born order, born power, the original, the Adi, the primordial and this one is responsible for creating this great universe. Why this has started and how it works out is already you know, I need not talk about that. But today we have to talk about this Power which is hidden in your hearts by which you can do whatever you like to create a new world, a new family, a new standards, everything that is not known so far. That is quite possible .. that is quite possible and is being done. But, what is difficult is how to make people more adaptable, more in tune with each other, absolutely. It seems to be a difficult thing. They’re alright among themselves, if – their own friends, their own style, their things. But to make them absolutely one, one with each other, in one tune, in one line is very, very difficult and it should not be done! That’s not supposed to be, they’re not supposed to be like that. But it has to work out. Now the problem is, we have beautiful people, beautiful souls, but they do not become so one with each other as they should have. Now, how to solve this problem? Many people have asked me: “Mother, how to Read More …

Adi Shakti Puja: We are the singers of Shri Mataji Campus, Cabella Ligure (Italy)

After the Adi Shakti Puja, Cabella Ligure, 15 June 2003. After the short Puja it was sung with great joy the bhajan “Gondari”. In the end, Shri Mataji said: I am very happy all of you are here singing the song of Gondari.  Perhaps you do not know the meaning.  That is ‘We are the singers of Shri Mataji’.  And these are the songs sung by people who are villagers and they are singing this song that ‘We are singing the song of our Mother, with all our love for Her’.  And all that singing has come to you – is very, very happy for Me because these are only ordinary villagers and how you have accepted such a nice mood and songs from them. May God bless you. Thank you very much.  Thank you very much.

Adi Shakti Puja: Use Your Right Side For Giving Realization Campus, Cabella Ligure (Italy)

Adi Shakti Puja. Cabella Ligure (Italy), 23 June 2002. Today it’s a different day altogether for all of you because this is the puja of Adi Shakti, and Adi Shakti is a complete personality. It’s not only the left side that you know. You all know only the left side, from Shri Ganesha through the ascent of different, different chakras on the left side. I didn’t want to tell you about the right side to begin with, because those who have gone through the right side got just lost. They got Gayatri Mantra from the writings but they didn’t know what it was about. They just used to learn it by heart. They didn’t also know the real meaning of it, and that is how they moved on the right side and, I don’t know, they landed up at the Agnya; and then they were trying for the Self-realisation. They were promised that, if you do this right side properly, you will reach to the ultimate goal of Self-realisation, but none of them reached it. Most of them got into a terrible temper, terrible temper of cursing others, of destroying others. All these things they learnt through their right-side movement. There was no Kundalini awakening, and they were made to go up to the, at the most, Agnya Chakra, and then they collapsed into different places of complete ignorance. All these books were written without understanding that it’s not easy to go via right side, but the best was to Read More …

Adi Shakti Puja: Humanity has to be saved through you and nobody else Campus, Cabella Ligure (Italy)

“The Work of the Adi Shakti”, Adi Shakti Puja, Cabella Ligure (Italy), 3 June 2001. Today we are worshipping Adi Shakti. I think this is the most important puja because it is the power of Adi Shakti that has given you Self-realisation, that has given you the truth, that has given you the power of compassion and love.  That’s the power that separated from Sadashiva. And this power wanted, Herself, to create this complete universe — universes after universes. She’s creating and loving. With Her love, She did this great Creation: creation of this world also. This is a specially selected planet, which was very beautifully brought in the centre, between the Sun and the Moon, for the creation of, ultimately, the human beings.  This is Her great work [done] with such love and affection, and with very great hope that Her children will know the truth and will get the ultimate knowledge about themselves and about everything else. As you have read in The Bible about how Adi Shakti came in the form of a snake and told human beings that, “You have to know the knowledge,” [to] Adam and Eve, and to Eve especially. And they accepted to eat the fruit of knowledge because they would have remained just like animals, without knowing any subtleties of life — little higher animals maybe. Once they ate the fruit they started feeling that there is something wrong, the way they are without any clothes. So they brought some leaves of Read More …

Adi Shakti Puja: Women, Emotional Intelligence Nirmal Nagari, Canajoharie (United States)

Adi Shakti Puja. Nirmal Nagari, Canajoharie, NY (USA), 2 July 2000. Today we have come here to do the Adi Shakti Puja.I have already told you about the Adi Shakti, how She had to work out so many things in this world —first to create and then to create human beings through evolutionary process. After that, to comfort. Then to counsel.So many people here came on this Earth just to do the counselling. They told what was wrong, what was right, what should we do, what we should not do, what is self-respect and what is the duty of a human being as a superior-most creature. So many of Them came on this Earth. One after another, in every country, They came and Their counselling formed religions. Of course, you see the mess of the religions and that’s how Their life was wasted, that They formed religions after religions, by which only human beings were divided, divided to such an extent they hate each other. Hateful, somebody’s born in an X religion, he hates the person who follows the Y religion. While Those who came as counsellors talked about complete unity, complete oneness of human race, despite that, human brain, in its freedom, did all kinds of wrong things and created a country or, you can say the whole world, full of lots of problems arising out of religion. How can it be that religion makes you hate somebody? Religion is there to understand love, imbibe love and compassion.So the Read More …

Adi Shakti Puja: It is your duty to transform others Canajoharie (United States)

Adi Shakti Puja. Canajoharie, USA. 20 June 1999. It is such a great pleasure to Me, to see you all assembled here, and which is such a far-fetched place, away from the madding crowd. It’s such a beautiful place, and which has vibrations. Shri Mataji: They can’t hear you. Now can you hear Me? Sahaja Yogis: Yes. Shri Mataji: All right. It’s all right now. I selected this place suddenly from a very thick newspaper, American newspaper. The vibrations were just shooting out and I said, “What is this, coming from where?” And there was a little advertisement, and I said, “This is the place where we have to go.” This place has so many vibrations, even in the advertisement. So you can imagine how the guidance comes. It comes from vibrations, and that’s how I was here and this place was selected by the Divine Force. It happened only in one day! Such a miraculous thing to happen in one day! It was taking so much time for them even to get this, and suddenly I told them, “Better get it.” It all worked out, and we are now here in the most beautiful atmosphere. Of course, you know that Red Indians were driven out, and they came here to hide themselves. They were hiding themselves in this place so that they should not be crushed and destroyed forever. That era is over now: that era of domination, of entering into somebody else’s land and occupying it, and considering Read More …

Adi Shakti Puja: You Must Develop Humility Campus, Cabella Ligure (Italy)

Adi Shakti Puja. Cabella Ligure (Italy), 21 June 1998. In Russia the people, somehow, are very open-minded, not only that, the Scientists especially, are very open-minded and were suppressed very much. So they tried to find out the subtler things; not only finding out about chemicals or about some physical properties of the light, but, they wanted to go into the subtler side and they had found out already a great deal of knowledge about the auras – auras around the hands, auras around the body. They had done so much research and, it was accepted all over the world – their findings. Now this gentleman was a specialist, I think, because he’s a very well-known, a very very well-known person and he’s holding a very big position. He was saying that he has to run 150 organizations. Very humble and very nice person; and when he came out with this discovery, I was happy in a way, because scientifically, if it is proved, then nobody can challenge it. He has already written a book with all the algebraical complications of what he wanted to prove. He said there is a vacuum. Beyond the consciousness, there is vacuum; and in that vacuum only, you can know the reality and once all this becomes the reality, it is a science – and that’s how it is made into science. He showed so many of my photographs – especially the one where a lot of energy is coming out of my Sahasrara Read More …

Adi Shakti Puja: Respect the Mother Earth, Why are we in Sahaja Yoga? Campus, Cabella Ligure (Italy)

Adi Shakti Puja. Cabella Ligure (Italy), 25 May 1997. Today we are going to do the Puja of Adi Shakti. It’s a difficult subject to talk about Adi Shakti, because it’s not easy to understand that Adi Shakti is the power of Sadashiva. Sadashiva is the God Almighty. She is His breath, as they some people call it. Some say She is the desire and some say that She’s the entire power of Sadashiva, and Sadashiva cannot do anything without Her powers. This subject has been described by many people in various books in different ways. But actually we need not go to the background of the creation of Adi Shakti, for that at least you’ll need seven lectures (Shri Mataji smiles). But we’ll come to the point when Adi Shakti started working on this Mother Earth. The first thing is we must know, that She created a Kundalini in the Mother Earth itself and She created Shri Ganesha out of the Mother Earth, it’s very interesting. So, the Mother Earth becomes a very important thing for us. If we do not know how to respect the Mother Earth, we do not know how to respect ourselves. The expression of Adi Shakti within you is the Kundalini, no doubt. That is the reflection of Adi Shakti in you. But the reflection in the Mother Earth is also expressed, as you all know, in different places, different countries, different cities, as the manifestation of chakras and Adi Shakti’s creations. It was Read More …

Adi Shakti Puja: The compassion has to become active Campus, Cabella Ligure (Italy)

Adi Shakti Puja. Cabella Ligure (Italy), 9 June 1996. Today, we are going to worship the Adi Shakti and the reflection of Adi Shakti within you, is the Kundalini. We can say this is the worship of the Adi Shakti and Adi Kundalini, if you understand that all this, whatever is created on this Universe and in many Universes, is the work of the Adi Shakti. Now many people believe that there is one God – it’s true, there’s one God – God Almighty. But He has His own powers which he can embody into someone and can get His own manifestation expressed. So, first of all He did, was to create the power of Adi Shakti. When it was created, then there was a sound, the sound that we call as AUM – logos or anything you call it – by the primordial sound and these three Powers came out of that sound, is A, U and M – AUM. The Adi Shakti is the one who embodies the desire of God Almighty. The desire of God Almighty comes out of His compassion and for His own expression, for His own manifestation, for His own reflection. I would say that He must be tired of loneliness so He must have thought of creating a partner who will manifest His desires. Thus, the power of God Almighty separated from Him and formed an embodiment of His compassion, His desire to create. They say in Sanskrit – they use a word Read More …

Devi Puja Moscow (Russia)

Shakti Devi Puja. Moscow (Russia), 17 September 1995.  I am sorry, I was little late today, but I am sure you must have enjoyed each other. Enjoyment of collectivity is very great. Once it happened, I was going to some place and the plane was very late and I was little worried that I’ll be reaching late there. But actually the plane was so late that I reached after seven hours more. And all the people were waiting for that time at the airport. That was in Delhi, and when I reached there, they looked so fresh and nice, I was surprised. I said, “Did you go home?” “No, no, we were waiting here only for You at the airport.” All singing, dancing nicely the whole night. It’s something about Sahaja yoga that every moment we can enjoy. We can enjoy for our benefit. Modern ideas are, as in the west is, especially in America, that we must enjoy every moment of our life. But actually all these enjoyments that they have are self destructive. The kind of things they do, like drinking or they go to places where they start fighting or else they do all other hopeless things that should not be done. And thus their collectivity becomes very dangerous. So much so that they are smuggling or they are killing. They all become collective to do something very harmful to themselves or to their nation. But Sahaja yogis don’t know this kind of enjoyment. Every moment is Read More …

Adi Shakti Puja: the hurdles in rising the Kundalini Campus, Cabella Ligure (Italy)

‘Money Orientation’, Adi Shakti puja, Cabella Ligure, 4 June 1995. Today we have gathered here to do the Kundalini puja or the Adi Shakti puja. There’s a difference between the two: Adi Shakti is the total power of God, of His desire, while [Adi] Kundalini is the one that is reflected, part which is reflected, in the human beings as Kundalini. So there’s a difference between the Adi Kundalini and the Adi Shakti. Adi Shakti is the Parashakti, is the power which is beyond all the powers, which controls all the powers. And one of the powers of Adi Shakti is Kundalini. For example the Kundalini which is placed within me, in the triangular bone, is not [the] totality of me. In the same way the Kundalini, which is placed within you, is not the totality. Of course, it is the power which is there to give you your Self-realisation; is the power that redeems you, that nourishes you, that enlightens your centres. But there are two other powers, as you know, very powerful, which are working through Ida and Pingala, and the third one is Mahalakshmi which is in the centre. Now Kundalini’s main job is to give you your Self-realisation, because She is your individual Mother. Everyone has the Kundalini within himself or herself reflected; whatever maybe the quality of that person. Now as you see reflections fall on everything. Say, the reflection of the Moon falls on the stone, we don’t see any reflection. It then falls Read More …

Adi Shakti Puja Jaipur (India)

Adi Shakti Puja (Hindi). Jaipur (India), 11 December 1994. [Translation from Hindi to English] Today we are going to worship Adi shakti.Everything is covered in it. Many people have not even heard the name of Adi shakti. We are the worshipers of Shakti. Here we are Shaktdharmi (religiously devoted to Shakti) and many kings have been worshiping Adi Shakti. Everyone has different deities and the names of each deity is different. The name of the deity of this place is also different, it is “Gangaur”. But Adi Shakti was once born in Rajasthan state whose name was “Sati Devi”. It is her grace that we find our culture the Dharma of wife, Dharma of husband, Dharma of ruling etc. which are nourished by her Shakti. You all know the story of Sati Devi, I don’t have to tell you in new way but she was Gangaur. She was married and while she was returning after marriage with her husband some of the bad elements surrounded them and killed her husband. She came out of the bride’s carriage, took the Rudra form and destroyed all of them who attacked her husband and then she finished herself also. We should see in this that since childhood till marriage she did not disclose that she was Maha Maya in any condition.It is necessary for Adishakti to be in Mahamaya form because the one who has whole powers and light within has to take Mahamaya form. The reason is all those great powers which Read More …

Adi Shakti Puja: Seeking, Women Campus, Cabella Ligure (Italy)

Adi Shakti Puja. Cabella Ligure (Italy), 26 June 1994. Today you all have decided to have the puja of Adi Shakti. There’s a difference between doing the puja of Kundalini Shakti or Adi Kundalini and Adi Shakti. The difference is like this: on one side the Kundalini is reflected in you by Adi Kundalini; the second side is the power of Adi Shakti which is Paramchaitanya. So in totality, if you see, it has two sides. One is Her power as Paramchaitanya and also reflection in human beings as Kundalini.The third work that Adi Shakti had to do was to create this whole universe. To begin with, as you have seen yesterday also how the cosmos was created and then how this special planet of Mother Earth was created. Now what I have told you about Adam and Eve, we have found out, said by also John in his Gnostics book. It’s very surprising. They always told you that Christ must have told you many things, but they are not in the Bible. So if you understand that this Adi Shakti came as a serpent — the Adi Kundalini part of Her — and told the Adam and Eve, especially Eve, that she should ask for the fruit of knowledge to be eaten. The reason I gave you is exactly written there, that the Mother power, the feminine power, didn’t want Her children to live like animals without understanding what is the knowledge of the higher realms, not giving them Read More …

Shri Mahamaya Puja: We Are All In Her Body Auckland (New Zealand)

Shri Mahamaya Puja, Auckland (New Zealand), 10 April 1994. Today is the first day, New Year’s Day, according to the Shalivahana Calendar, who were My forefathers. And in the whole of Maharashtra, it is regarded as the New Year Day and the best day to start anything. So today I’ve decided to have Mahamaya Puja.I have never talked about Mahamaya, as it is not to be talked or told – it’s a secret, as they say. It’s the basic of Sahaja Yoga, I should say, because it’s described, when the Goddess comes in the Sahasrara, the Shakti, She is Mahamaya – “Sahasrare Mahamaya,” already described. She has to be the Mahamaya, means She should camouflage Herself fully. Nobody should be able to know Her as the Goddess, to begin with; and even if they get Realization, they should not reach to the end of it. There are many reasons for that. The first thing [is] the job. The job of Mahamaya was to give Realization. Now, if I had come on a tiger with a sword in My hand, nobody would have stood near Me. You all would have run away from Me. In any other form, if the Goddess had come, She could not have done what She was supposed to do. Moreover, only if She had come as the Mother of Christ, or Shri Sitaji, or you can say Fatimabi – they all ended their lives. They had to go away from this world so early, I mean. Read More …

Shakti Puja: After Realisation we use only one power which is of Love Tolyatti (Russia)

Shakti Puja, Togliatti (Russia), 3 August 1993. Today it is such a great day for Me to be with you, all again this year. It’s so very joyous and full of fragrance. Today we have decided to have a Puja of Shakti that is the Power, that is the Devi. You know within us there are many Powers of Mahakali, Mahasaraswati, Mahalakshmi, Kundalini. All these Powers are there for us to ascent. If these Powers are properly used and understood, then your ascent can be permanent. Once you achieve your ascent and enter into the kingdom of God, all these Powers get enlightened. And these Powers which are enlightened are absolutely filled with love. Enlightenment, we have to understand that we get completely enlightened by love. So, after enlightenment, after Realisation, we use only one power which is of love. Shri Rama had two sons: one was Lav and one was Kush. One of them, Lav, came to Russia. That’s why you are called as Slavs, means ‘with love’. So, Russian people are already quite full of their heart with love. But once you get your enlightenment, you realise that your love becomes a beautiful ocean of joy for yourself. This love is not the same which you had before enlightenment. It’s transformed into a new dimension, into a new form. Before enlightenment you are attached to yourself, first of all, very much: to your body, to your mind, to your conditionings, to your intellect, to your ego. And that Read More …

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 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 …

Shri Radha Krishna Puja: The importance of friendship La Belle Étoile, La Rochette (France)

Shri Radha Krishna Puja, “The Importance of Friendship”, Melun (France), 9 July 1989. I am really over-delighted that in France we have so many visitors as well as French Sahaja Yogis for this Puja. That shows the collectivity, the collectivity which attracts all of you from all over the places, and that you try to enjoy that collectivity. But the basis of collectivity, the foundation of collectivity is very deep; and the deep understanding can only tell you that the basis of collectivity is detached love. Love is the only way. It’s not possible to have collectivity unless and until you have detached love. French have been good at so many types of love that they have been talking about; and they have written books after books, novels after novels and have created lots of romantic and unromantic and all kinds of atmospheres to talk of love. But the pure love, as we understand in Sahaja Yoga, is to be now expressed by Sahaja Yogis among themselves. After all, we are all human beings made by one God. And we are all Sahaja Yogis created by one Mother. So there should be no misunderstanding between us of any kind. But we must know what sometimes makes us a little different. If we can understand the problems that we face, then it would be much easier for us to see why our love becomes so attached and not so detached. It starts becoming smaller and smaller, then a person just starts Read More …

Shri Pallas Athena Puja: The Origins and Role of Greece Athens, Stamatis Boudouris house (Greece)

Shri Pallas Athena Puja. Greece, 24 May 1989. Everything in Sahaja Yoga is very scientific, is all pre-planned I think, and is all significant. For example, today is Wednesday and we have never had any Puja on a Wednesday because I was born on Wednesday. So, I was thinking if the Puja starts before twelve o’clock, we’ll be able to manage it because I was born at twelve. So, every child has to sleep after twelve o’clock, you see, and so I couldn’t, I had to sleep. So, it’s so significant, you see. It’s the first time we are having a Puja on Wednesday, normally I don’t even travel on Wednesdays. So, you can imagine that it’s such a breakthrough, and I’m very happy that you all are ready for a Puja and that we could break this rule also, after such a long time, because it was impossible for me to keep awake after twelve, you see, I was trying, trying, trying and I knew that you all, also, were feeling very sleepy. So, it’s so mutual and it’s so simple. Alright. So, today we have gathered, really, remarkably, in the really centre of the Nabhi of the universe, and I don’t know how far I can go with the description of this great country which we call as Greece. Also, in the Puranas it is described as Manipura Dweep. The Manipur is the Nabhi Chakra – Manipur, and a “dweep” is an island. Island of the Manipura stays 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 …

Devi Puja: The sincerity is the most important Dourdan (France)

Devi Puja, French seminar. Dourdan (France), 18 May 1986. Today we have gathered here in this beautiful place to work out something very deep. There are certain things of which we are not aware, which are in the history, and some things in the atmosphere, they affect us very much because we are the product of five elements out of which the Mother Earth is the left side within us. The Mother Earth changes its atmosphere, its hills and dales, rivers, fashions them in such a way that it gives a variety to her temperaments. Now God has created only one world, He’s not created many worlds, He’s created only one world, this world where alone here only human beings are created. So, this is the most important planet, you can say, which has been in the attention of the Divine. So, the whole cosmos works out for the benefit of this planet, and the working of that cosmos has created this earth, and then human beings, and then the Sahaja Yogis. So, the Sahaja Yogis are the epitome of the creative powers, they are the epitome of God’s desire, that’s what He desired, that’s why He created this cosmos, this universe and this earth. So now His desire is fulfilled when He sees seeds being reflected through the Sahaja Yogis. But there is still a few things we have to clear out within ourselves.His desire represents the Mahakali power within us. Now we have to see how His desire Read More …

Devi Puja Brahmapuri (India)

Devi Puja. India Tour, Brahmapuri (India), 27 December 1985. Shri Mataji: Ask her. Nathalie, come here. Join hands with Danya. Are you all right, Ray, now? Put kumkum to everyone. Just take that, see, you can leave that here. All the ladies, put it on. [Cut in the video] Yesterday one boy stood up and asked Me a question, that: “When we are such a yoga bhoomi, we are such a holy country, why is it that all the discoveries in the science are made in the West?” “Very good question,” I said. I said: “That is the knowledge of the tree, as I have told you; that’s the knowledge of the tree. And what have they achieved is now the end of it, and now they want to know the knowledge of the roots. That’s why they are here.” So to know the knowledge of the roots, first of all, we must have humility about it. We have not known this knowledge yet, never known what is in the Kingdom of God. As Krishna has said, this tree grows downward and the roots are in the brain – clearly. So it is an ascent to go to the roots, it’s a different style. Kundalini has to rise upward to go to the roots, and to enter into the roots what we have to do is to know about it. Now all these things, like I said yesterday that you put on “bindi”. Now this is also – thank God, Read More …

Devi Puja: Steady Yourself San Diego (United States)

Devi Puja. San Diego, California (USA), 31 May 1985. May God bless you.Please be seated. (Just to record, hmm?)It’s such a pleasure to be in the ashram in San Diego. And it’s such a beautiful place, so much expressing the love of God, the Divine, the way it wants to help you at every step. If you want to have an ashram, if you want to have a proper place, you want to look after your children well, you want to do God’s work, everything is looked after, everything has to be worked out. If it is not worked out, then how will you do your work? So, it all works out. And it’s so obvious, the way we have different ashrams, such comfortable places at a very reasonable amount that we can afford, that we can live happily together. This is the abode created by love for you. So, the first thing we have to remember, that among ourselves we should have complete love. [Marathi] We should not trust people who try to divide us, who try to give us wrong ideas. It’s very easy to make out a person who is a Sahaja yogi from the heart. It’s very easy to make out. You have to be a little more sensitive and you’ll find out such a person very easily. Whatever may be the cunning, it can be discovered. Nobody can act against God now, because everything will be discovered and will be found out. But we have Read More …

Devi Puja: How To Ascend Into Nirvikalpa Sydney (Australia)

Devi Puja, “How to ascend into nirvikalpa” Sydney (Australia), 10 March 1985. Breeze will blow, now you won’t have problems. It is such a joy to see so many Sahaj Yogis of such high evolution. I am sure all the gods and goddesses and the God Almighty himself must be overjoyed to see this achievement, no doubt about it.  But I was told that you want to know higher ways, or higher things, by which you would like to ascend higher and higher.  In the samadhi state, first is the thoughtless awareness, as you know, called the nirvichar samadhi. And then into the other state, which is called as nirvikalpa samadhi, where it is doubtless awareness, is two stages: savikalpa and nirvikalpa. Most of the Sahaj Yogis now are on the savikalpa, not yet at the nirvikalpa. And to rise up to the nirvikalpa, we must understand that we have to do little more about it.  So far we had our physical problems which are solved — physical needs, comforts cannot dominate us anymore. We can live in any conditions, like Brahmapuri. We enjoy all that, that shows that we have now risen above the conditions that are laid down by the material life or the matter. That’s a good state where we have reached, which is also very difficult for people. Normally, people are extremely fussy; they are worried about worldly things, worldly possessions, worldly material problems. So many of them would come and tell me, “I haven’t got Read More …

Devi Puja: Individual journey towards God Sydney (Australia)

Devi Puja. Sydney (Australia), 14 March 1983. Now you all have realised by this time, that within us lies the peace, the beauty, the glory of our being. There’s an ocean of all that. We cannot seek it outside. We have to go within; what they call ‘in the meditative state’ you seek it, you enjoy it. Like, when you are thirsty, you go to a river or you go to an ocean and try to quench your thirst. But even the ocean cannot give you sweet water so how can anything that is spread outside give you that deep thing that is within you? You are trying to find it out outside where it does not lie. It is within us, absolutely within us. It is so simple because it is your own. It is within your reach, just there. Whatever you have been doing: going out to find the joy, the so-called joy, the so-called happiness, the so-called glory of worldly powers and worldly possessions, you have to reverse it back the whole thing. You have to project within yourself. It was not wrong that you went out [but] it was not correct that you went out. You shouldn’t feel sorry for what you have done so far. It was not the correct way to get to the real joy of life, the real glory of your being. It has worked in so many people that you have entered into that subtler understanding. Some people are only at Read More …

Adi Shakti puja: Mother, make me such that I suck more of the Divine Cowley Manor, Cheltenham (England)

Adishakti puja, Cowley Manor Seminar, Cowley, Cheltenham (UK), 1 August 1982. Shri Mataji: Have the Americans come, those who have done the puja, have they come? Sahaja Yogi: Yes, Mother. Shri Mataji: Are they here? Sahaja Yogi: Yes. Shri Mataji: Oh, they are here. Then it’s all right. And in these new centres, have you started with puja anywhere? Sahaja Yogini: Yes, Mother. Shri Mataji: No, yours is all right. I’m asking about England. Warren: Any centres in Britain? Where there are new people. Shri Mataji: Cheltenham, for example. Where is Allan? Ask him. Warren: He’s just gone out for a moment. Any centres in Britain, any new people here, right now? Shri Mataji: If you have introduced them to puja, I don’t mind. But if they have never been introduced to puja, then you have to be careful. From their good point of view. I’m sorry I had to say this, because yesterday the load was too much, you know I couldn’t speak even, and lifting the Kundalini was like raising hundred donkeys on your head, it was too much. And all these half-baked people are such that they are like dog-in-the-manger, they won’t have it and they won’t allow others to have it. They’ll argue before the program, before the meeting starts, before the puja starts, specially. Because they don’t want you to enjoy the fruits of the puja; they’ll spoil your attention, they’ll argue, discuss. [Aside: “Please sit down”] What is there to argue in Sahaja Yoga? Read More …
