Evening Talk, Eve Of Shri Krishna Puja Campus, Cabella Ligure (Italy)

Evening address before Krishna Puja. Cabella (Italy), 31 August 1991.

I’m really thankful to both of them, really, for one reason, see, humor can say many things you cannot say otherwise.

Shri Hanumana Puja. Margate (UK), 23 April 1989.

It is such a joy today, and the whole atmosphere seems to be bubbling with it, as if the angels are singing.  And the speciality of Hanumana was that He was an angel.

If Rama came to be the greatest example of kingship, of fatherhood and who gave society a tremendous base upon which to establish the quality of dharma and family life, then there had to be a power to sustain.

How the Divine is working within us? Cowasji Jehangir Hall, Mumbai (India)

Public Program, day 1 Jehangir Hall, Mumbai 23-03-1973

Shri Mataji: For example, if you discuss with a medical doctor, he will not be able to tell you what is a libido, which is the basis of many psychological findings. If you ask the psychologist, he may not be able to tell you what are the symptoms of the sympathetic and the parasympathetic nervous system.

Then, “yogashastri” (yoga experts) are regarded as something out of place. Perhaps we have never realised that all these knowledge springs from one source, […]
