Shri Krishna Puja Pune (India)

Shri Krishna Puja (Hindi). Pune (India), 9 August 2003.
Now we have to realize that Sahaja Yoga has spread a lot and in all corners of the world people respect Sahaja Yoga, but until and unless Sahaja Yoga is completely manifested within us, the people who respect Sahaja Yoga will not continue to do so. That is why it is essential that we look inside of us. The nature of Shri Krishna is that we look inside of us and see what are the things that put us in trouble. […]

Shri Krishna puja. Nirmal Nagari, Canajoharie, New York (USA), 29 July 2001.
Today we have gathered here to worship
Shri Krishna, the One who was Virat, who fought all kinds of evil without entering into the arena. Shri Krishna’s life, in itself, is a very beautiful, creative and loving thing, but to understand Him, it is not easy.
For example, in Kurukshetra, where the war was going on and Arjuna became depressed and he said that: “Why should we fight, […]

Shri Krishna Puja Nirmal Temple, Cabella Ligure (Italy)

Shri Krishna puja. Cabella Ligure (Italy), 20 August 2000.
Today, we are here to worship Shri Krishna within us. As you know, you all have been seeking, before coming to Sahaja Yoga. You went to different places, read lots of books and also some of you were lost. And in that seeking, perhaps you did not know that you were seeking. What you were seeking was to know yourself. In all religions it is said “Know Thyself”. […]

Shri Virata Puja Nirmal Temple, Cabella Ligure (Italy)

Shri Virata Puja. Cabella (Italy), 5 September 1999.
Tonight we are going to worship Shri Krishna as Virat.
First it is important to understand the incarnation of Shri Krishna. The word ‘Krishna’ comes from the word ‘Krishi’ – ‘Krishi’ means ‘agriculture’. He sowed the seeds of spirituality. And for that, first of all we have to think: “Where are we, as far as spirituality is concerned? How is the land?”
So what had happened at the time of Shri Rama is that he had created lots of maryadas. […]

Shri Krishna Puja, Primordial Taboos and Sahaj Dharma Nirmal Temple, Cabella Ligure (Italy)

Shri Krishna Puja. Cabella (Italy), 23 August 1997.

Today, we are here to celebrate Krishna puja. I went to America and they wanted me to have a Mahakali puja. But I said, no, let me talk about Krishna only, because we have to first realize what is the strength of this Puja. How are we going to establish Shri Krishna within ourselves ?

He, Himself has said, that whenever there is a downfall of dharma – […]

Shri Krishna Puja, Freedom Without Wisdom Is Dangerous New York City (United States)

Shri Krishna Puja. New York (USA), 8 June 1997
Today we have decided to have Shri Krishna Puja in the land of Shri Krishna.
Though this is the land of Shri Krishna, people ask Me why the people are not spiritual. How is it they get entangled into different types of seekings which are not leading to truth? Why is it the people in America are not so alert as to recognize what is the truth and what they have to find? […]

Shri Krishna Puja, Sahaja Culture Nirmal Temple, Cabella Ligure (Italy)

1996-09-01 Shri Krishna Puja, Sahaja Culture, Cabella Ligure, Italy
Today, we are going to worship Shri Krishna. See how cold it was about 3 o’clock. Now the reason is this, that Shri Krishna did little mischief with Indra. Indra, who is a God, or you can call semi-God, for looking after the rain. So, Indra got very angry.
You see, all such semi-Gods are very sensitive people, at the smallest thing they get angry and irritated and they start using their powers to express their anger. […]

Shri Krishna Puja, You Have To Be Festive Nirmal Temple, Cabella Ligure (Italy)

Shri Krishna Puja. Cabella Ligure (Italy), 20 August 1995.
Today we are going to worship Radha and Krishna. It’s a very festive feeling because Shri Krishna came on this earth at a time when people had become extremely serious about religion, about spirituality, and that made the whole aspect of religion as a joyless achievement.
And that’s how people became very serious; also the attention of people was diverted into a kind of a drama, which created aloofness from the society. […]

Shri Krishna Puja. Cabella Ligure (Italy), 28 August 1994.
Today we are here to worship Shri Krishna. As you know Shri Krishna is the incarnation of Vishnu. And Vishnu is the one who is the preserver of this universe.

Shri Krishna Puja, River Yamuna and Shri Krishna’s life Yamuna Nagar (India)

Shri Krishna puja. Yamuna Nagar (India), 11 December 1993.
Today we are going to have the puja of Shri Krishna.
In Shri Krishna’s life the river Yamuna has played a very great role. Yamuna River is a very deep river and the water has a blue colour, which they say Shri Krishna also had. While the River Ganges flows faster and much shallower than this. Next year, maybe, we might go to Allahabad, might be able to see the two rivers meet. […]

North America and South America, as you know is the Shri Krishna’s center of Vishuddhi. And it is very important to know also that all the communications, all the relationships with the whole creation has to be established through this center of Vishuddhi. Vishuddhi, as you know is the most important center in your ascent, […]

Shri Krishna Puja, Dharma Nirmal Temple, Cabella Ligure (Italy)

Shri Krishna Puja, Cabella Ligure (Italy), 15 August 1993
Today we have gathered here to do Shri Krishna Puja. We have to understand clearly that Shri Krishna is a very, very important deity within us because He is the Vishnu, who resides in the Void, in the Nabhi. He is the one who generates dharma within us.
When you got your realization I didn’t tell you, “Don’t do this. Don’t do that.” I never told you that “This is not good. […]

Shri Vishnumaya Puja, Stop Feeling Guilty Shawnee on Delaware (United States)

Shri Vishnumaya puja. Shawnee, Pennsylvania (USA), 20 September 1992.
Today, we have decided to have a Vishnumaya Puja. In this context, one has to know who is this Vishnumaya and what is Her – you can call it mythological [Shri Mataji laughs gently] – but a historical relationship. I have told you that America is the country of Shri Krishna and He’s Kubera, as well as He’s Yama. Because He’s Kubera, people have got their affluence, […]

Shri Krishna puja. Ascending beyond the Vishuddhi, The Viraata State, Cabella Ligure (Italy), 16 August 1992.

Today we have decided to have the puja of Shri Krishna. We have many a times done this puja and have understood the essence of Shri Krishna’s advent, which was six thousand years back. And now, what His manifestation was, what He wanted to be accomplished has to be done in this Kali Yuga. As it is, this Kali Yuga is going into a new realm of Satya Yuga, […]

Shri Vishnumaya Puja Ashram Everbeek, Everbeek (Belgium)

Shri Vishnumaya Puja, Ashram Everbeek (Belgium), 4 July 1992.
Talk starts at 17:44 on video
It’s a unique opportunity today to do Vishnumaya Puja because She entered into this house [Shri Mataji laughing], we have to worship Her.
First we should know who is Vishnumaya. It’s very important to know because in the Devi Mahatmyam She is only described as the Incarnation of the Goddess: “Vishnumaya iti shabdita” [chant 5], She is called as Vishnumaya.
But let’s see who is She? […]

Shri Krishna Puja, Yogeshwara – The Technique of the Play Nirmal Temple, Cabella Ligure (Italy)

Shri Krishna Puja. Cabella Ligure (Italy), 1 September 1991.
Today we have decided to worship the Yogeshwara. I think that is the greatest name of Shri Krishna for us. That means He is the Ishwara of yoga. “Yoga” means “the union,” as you know, with the Divine. But also yoga has another meaning which means “yukti”. In English language, translated properly, not possible, we can call it as – yukti means “the trick”, the trick. But trick is always connected with something funny and bad. […]

Hamsa Puja, The Source of Discretion New York City (United States)

Hamsa Puja. NewYork (USA), 28 April 1991.
Today we have assembled in the area of Vishuddhi. In the Gita, Shri Krishna has described the area as “Kshetra”, and the one who knows the area is called as “Kshetragna”.
“Gna”, yesterday as I told you, “gna” or “gya”, means: “The one to know on your central nervous system”. So the one who is the knower of that area is the Kshetragna.
Today we are going to know about the Hamsa Chakra. […]

Virata Puja, Appreciation Should Be Practiced and Informal talk Lake Road Ashram, Melbourne (Australia)

Virata Puja. Melbourne (Australia), 10 April 1991

Because of distances and also we had no ashram in Melbourne all these days, I found that the collectivity is not yet properly woven here and so I think best thing is, today, we must worship the Viraat.

Viraat is the Primordial Father you can say, or the One who is in our brain, acts for our collectivity. As the Kundalini rises ultimately She ends up by piercing through the fontanel bone area. […]

Shri Krishna Puja Hallowtree Scout Campsite, Ipswich (England)

Shri Krishna Puja. (UK), 19 August 1990.
We have arranged this Puja specially in England so that many more can come and work out the awakening of Shri Krishna.
Gita was written long time back, and it has been translated into so many languages, and lots of commentaries and criticism has been there. So this bookish knowledge of Gita has ruined many people, and even today you find there are many people who are selling the books of Gita all over and making it into a bookish knowledge. […]

Raksha Bandhan and Shri Ganesha Puja Dr. Vinod Worlikar's House, Cerritos (United States)

Raksha Bandhan. Los Angeles (USA), 7 August 1990.
So, this day is extremely important in a way for Sahaja Yogis to observe and I’m happy that I am here because it’s very important also for America. As I told you that, I have already talked to you how the war between Alexander and Poros was finished because of a sister’s intervention. And also how Shri Krishna whose sister was Draupadi, Vishnumaya was born as Draupadi and how He came to save Her chastity by rushing all the way from Dwarika. […]

“Divine Discretion”, Hamsa Chakra Puja YMCA - Camp Marston, San Diego (United States)

“Divine discretion,” Hamsa Chakra Puja, Camp Marsden, San Diego (USA), 28 May 1990.

It’s another great pleasure to
come to America to meet you all people here.

This one, as I’ve told you, is a
very important country in the field of spirituality. Not because it’s a large
country or because it is very prosperous but because, as you know, it is the
Vishuddhi in the plan of Virat. Vishuddhi is such an important chakra. It has a
very great manifestation also. […]

Shri Krishna Puja Saffron Walden (England)

Shri Krishna Puja. Saffron Walden (England), 14 August 1989.
Today we have gathered here to worship Shri Krishna’s incarnation. As you know that Shri Krishna is the incarnation of Narayana, of Shri Vishnu. So in every incarnation they carry all their qualities, all their powers and all their nature with them. So when He incarnated He had all the qualities of Narayana and then that of Rama, but every incarnation tries to rectify whatever in their previous life has been misunderstood and have been carried to the extremes. […]

Arrival and Virata Puja Camp Wonposet, Litchfield (United States)

Shri Virata Puja. Camp Wonposet, Connecticut (USA), 11 June 1989.
Today we have decided to have a puja of Virata in the land of Shri Krishna.
As you know, in the growth of Shri Vishnu’s manifestation, He comes into ten incarnations and ultimately He manifests Himself as Virat. Virat is the brain of the being which can call as God Almighty, so the whole central nervous system is worked through by Shri Krishna as Vishnu, then all these incarnations, […]

Shri Vishnumaya Puja, Cure That Left Vishuddhi Shudy Camps Park, Shudy Camps (England)

“Cure that Left Vishuddhi” Shri Vishnumaya puja. Shudy Camps (England), 20 August 1988.
This was least expected that we’ll have a Puja here or we’ll have any program of this kind. But I think something was left out of the whole program of such a fast one as you know I had to do, going from London to Frankfurt to America to Bogota, to be back, then Andorra and all these places still, I thought, now it is finished. […]

Shri Krishna Puja, The State of Witnessing Como (Italy)

Shri Krishna Puja. Garlate, Como (Italy), 6 August 1988.
Today we have gathered here to worship Shri Krishna.
We must understand the significance of Shri Krishna’s advent on the Vishuddhi chakra.
As you know very well, except for once or twice, Shri Brahmadeva has taken His incarnation. Also once Shri Ganesha has taken His birth as Lord Jesus Christ. But Vishnu tattwa, the principle of Vishnu, has taken many a times birth on this earth, as the Goddess had to take many-a-times Her birth. […]

Shri Hamsa Swamini puja and two talks Grafenaschau (Germany)

Shri Hamsa Swamini Puja, Grafenaschau (Germany), 10 July 1988.
Today we have decided to have a Hamsa Puja in Germany. We have never yet paid much attention to this center of Hamsa, which is, I think, very important for the Western world, rather than for the Indian or the Eastern. The reason is, at the Hamsa chakra, part of the Ida and Pingala come out and manifest – means the expression of Ida and Pingala is given through the Hamsa chakra. […]

Puja, Marriage and Nirvikalpa Kolhapur (India)

Puja. Kolhapur (India), 30 December 1987.
Today when I was coming from the shopping, I couldn’t get into the car. One foot was inside, and another would not leave it. So I came out of the car and then I knew that Mahalakshmi’s temple there were bells ringing and the aarti was on. So [INAUDIBLE WORD] Mahalakshmi didn’t want me to get into the car. I had to stand outside ’till the whole thing was over. […]

Shri Krishna Puja, The 16 000 Powers of Shri Krishna Saint-Quentin-en-Yvelines (France)

Shri Krishna Puja. St Quentin (France), 16 August 1987.
It was very beautiful of [the] children to come and receive me in this beautiful manner. It can take you back to the days of Krishna when, in his childhood, he was very much respected by his friends and they tried to do all the honour that was possible. You know the story of his birth. And here we have the flowing of water, both the sides. […]

Shri Vishnumaya Puja Pawling (United States)

Shri Vishnumaya Puja, New York (USA), 9 August 1987.
Today we have assembled here to do the puja of Vishnumaya.
Vishnumaya is created through human effort, also. As you see the clouds, when they rub against each other, then the electricity is created. So first the clouds have to be created. The sun acts on the sea. See how many chakras come into play! Sea is the Void, and the sun acts on the sea. Also the moon acts on the sea. […]

Talk, Eve of Shri Vishnumaya Puja Pawling (United States)

Day before Shri Vishnumaya Puja. New York (USA), 8 August 1987.

It’s very gratifying to see so many of you Americans have gathered today, and tomorrow you want to have the Vishnumaya Puja. I remember the days when I used to talk to chairs only, but all these years after working so very hard, visiting this country so many times, still we have very, very few Sahaja Yogis compared to any other nation.

In this country of Shri Krishna, […]

Shri Krishna Puja, The Six Enemies And False Enemies Hostellerie am Schwarzsee, Plaffeien (Switzerland)

Shri Krishna, Schwarzsee (Switzerland), 23 August 1986.
Shri Krishna resides in our Vishuddhi Chakra.
In the centre, He resides as Shri Krishna.
On the left hand side, His power, Vishnumaya, His sister, resides. There He resides as Gopala, as the one who lived in Gokul, played as a child.
On the right hand side He resides as the King who ruled in Dwarika, the King Shri Krishna.
These are the three sides of our Vishuddhi chakra. […]

Morning of Shri Krishna Puja seminar Hostellerie am Schwarzsee, Plaffeien (Switzerland)

Morning talk to Yogis, Krishna Puja seminar. Schwarzsee (Switzerland), 23 August 1986.

To see so many Sahaja Yogis assembled here, I’m sure the devil must have run away long time back. And the caravan must have left but I hope we are aware of it and we forget about our fears of our catches, of our past, of all the nonsense we have done so far. Suddenly in My presence, I think, people get into a sense of guilt. […]

Shri Vishnumaya Puja Southlands College, London (England)

Shri Vishnumaya Puja. Wimbledon, London (UK), 1 September 1985.

Today’s Puja of Vishnumaya, who was the sister of Shri Krishna, was not scheduled as such in an international pujas that we do. But they say for the love of God when all the devotees assemble, God also has to break many rules, and that’s how this puja has been accepted to be done. At least once it should be done, I think, was a good idea. […]

Shri Krishna Puja, Play the melody of God Englewood Ashram, New Jersey (United States)

Shri Krishna Puja. Englewood (USA), 2 June 1985.

Today we are going to do the worship of Shri Krishna.

Shri Krishna came at a time on this earth when in
India the people were very much ritualistic. They had become slaves
of the so-called Brahmins who had no idea about God at all because
they started a theme that a Brahmin can have a Brahmin son. So the
birth determined the caste of a person. Before that, […]

Shri Krishna Puja, Announcement of Vishwa Nirmala Dharma Nashik (India)

Shri Krishna Puja. Nasik (India), 19 January 1985.
Yesterday, in the lecture, I gave a new announcement about Sahaja Yoga. But the whole lecture was in Marathi language and before it is translated I would like to tell you what was my announcement.
There was a question that, in America and in England, no trust which is not a religion can be registered. Of course, Sahaja Yoga is the religion, no doubt, is the universal religion, […]

Shri Krishna Puja New Jersey (United States)

Shri Krishna Puja. New Jersey (USA), 18 August 1984.
…..many rakshasas and He used His samhara shakti, His killing powers, and His destroying powers to achieve that. Simultaneously at that time He was doing Sahaja Yoga with the gopa and the gopis in the way it was just a play, a leela. “Ra Dha. “Ra” is energy and “dha” means the one who has sustained it. She’s the sustainer of that energy. Radha. And She would go and have a bath in the river Yamuna and the ladies would go and fill up their pitchers with that water, […]

Talk on Holi day New Delhi (India)

Talk to yogis. Delhi (India), 17 March 1984.
I wish you all happy Holi.
This is a wonderful festival started by Shri Krishna long time back.
After the advent of Rama, who was a very serious gentleman and who believed in a very sacrificing life of a benevolent king, when all these things were so much prevalent in the air that one has to be a benevolent person, one has to be charitable, one has to be sac-rificing, […]

Shri Krishna Puja, Vishuddhi Chakra Vienna (Austria)

Talk before puja, “Vishuddhi Chakra”. Vienna (Austria), 4 September 1983.
Before going to America I wanted to speak more about the Vishuddhi Chakra and about Shri Krishna’s aspect within us. In the first Puja in Geneva I spoke quite a lot about it. There is no end to it, of course because it is the center of Virat. But one has to realize that the message of Shri Krishna was ‘to surrender’. Now, the surrendering that we think in the gross way is like an enemy surrenders to another enemy. […]

Shri Krishna Puja, The Ultimate Of The Fatherhood Tannay Ashram, Tannay (Switzerland)

Shri Krishna Puja, Tannay (Switzerland), 28 August 1983.
Today we are celebrating here in this holy land the birthday of Shri Krishna.
Shri Krishna is the ultimate of the fatherhood, that I described you before, who came on this Earth and illustrated the ultimate of that. So on this Earth, the highest fatherhood is Shri Krishna’s awareness. But in the Kingdom of God, we can say in Heavens, or even above everything else, resides Sadashiva who does not take incarnations. […]

The Vishuddhi Chakra New Delhi (India)

Vishuddhi Chakra, Delhi (India), Public Programme, 2 February 1983.
The prophets are born and create a ripple in our consciousness, a new dimension to our understanding to religion, dharma; which has to be assimilated and has to be understood that, whatever the previous prophets have said, has to be culminated into something else.
So as we can say Mohammed Sahib has said that all these prophets who have come on this earth have created a new ripple and also has sustained human beings with a newer evolution, […]

Shri Yogeshwara Puja, God of Yoga Chelsham Road Ashram, London (England)

Shri Yogeshwara Puja. Chelsham Road, London (UK), 15 August 1982.
Today is a great day for all of us to be jubilant that the primordial being Himself incarnated on this earth as Shri Krishna.
So many aspects of His being have been described in so many of my lectures to you all; but the greatest and greatest of all the aspects of this primordial being was that He was the Yogeshwara. He was the” God of Yoga” […]

From Heart to Sahastrar, Public Programme Guildhall Theatre, Derby (England)

“Heart, Vishuddhi, Agya, Sahastrara – Becoming the Knowledge”, Public Programme, Derby (UK), 11 July 1982.
I’mI’m happy that Dr. Warren could explain to you those chakras about which I told you yesterday, because in one short lecture you can’t cover all these points. And if you get your Realization and you progress well, then you can listen to My tapes which are in hundreds, and you can understand the knowledge is vast like ocean. As I yesterday told you that when you get enlightenment, […]

Public Program, From Mooladhara to Void Guildhall Theatre, Derby (England)

Public Program, “Mooladhara, Swadisthan, Nabhi, Void”. Derby (UK), 10 July 1982.
I thank all the Sahaja Yogis from Derbyshire and Birmingham for giving Me this opportunity to talk to the seekers of this place. We have seekers in the modern times, is something very unique. We never had seekers before, at least not so many.
There used to be people who would seek money, as there are many who are seeking these days, who would seek countries after countries, […]

Public Program, Heart, Vishuddhi, Agnya, Sahastrara New Delhi (India)

Public Program, New Delhi (India) 9 February 1981.
I talked to you about the Void in our body, which is called as Bhavasagara [Hindi], Bhavasagara in our Sahaja Yoga language.
Today we have to understand the other chakras, which are above the Bhavasagara.
Last time I told you how by following wrong gurus and spoiling your Guru principle you get problems in your stomach.
Also your extreme behavior towards religion, your fanaticism, creates problems which may go up to something like cancer. […]

Shri Krishna Puja, Most Dynamic Power of Love 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. […]
