Sahaj Yogse Labh New Delhi (India)

Public Program [English translation from Hindi] What is Sahaja yoga? Sahaja yoga. ‘Saha’ means with you and ‘ja ‘means born. ‘Yog’ means your attention’s union with God ‘s power of love that is spread all around. This occurance itself is called ‘yog’. This is the birth right of every human being. To get it , as the other meaning of ‘Sahaj” is easy, spontaneous. For this, there is proper arrangement within us. There is nobody within whom there is no such arrangement means within your triangular bone which is called ‘Sacrum’ in English language It means that Greeks knew that the triangular bone is sacred, means it is pure. That is why its name is ‘Sacrum’ since eternity. Now this bone In this triangular bone three and half circles the power that is inherent in it, is called Kundalini in Sanskrit. Within us God has bestowed three more powers too. One of those powers is that we desire. Our power of desire, our everyday work of the power of desire. And another is our power of action. This nourishes our sympathetic nervous system. Its nourishment depends upon these two chakras. First power, with the help of which we desire the channel through which that power is broadcasted is called Ida Nadi. And the other power that gets activated they do the work for the desire they have with their existence and their body that power which we can say is our right sympathetic nervous system. But its name is Pingala Read More …

Easter Puja: You have to crucify your ego Kolkata (India)

You have to crucify your ego, Easter Puja, Calcutta (India), 14 April 1995. Translation from Hindi: First I will speak to you in English and then in Hindi. [English talk] Today is the day we are celebrating Easter. Easter is extremely symbolic, of – not only of Christ, but also for all of us. In that the most important day is that of resurrection. The resurrection of Christ has the message of Christianity, not the cross. Through resurrection Christ had shown that one can be resurrected with the body that you have. And without His resurrection, we could not have managed the crossing of Agnya chakra, no doubt. His life was very short of, we can say three and half years only, He lived there. He came to India and He met Shalivahana, and Shalivahana asked His name. He told him His name was Isa Masih. But He said, “I am coming from the country where there are malichchas, mala-ichchha. They have ichchha of mal, desire to get dirty, and I don’t know how to live there. To Me, this is My country.” But Shalivahana said that, “You should go back and save Your people and give them Parama Nirmala Tattwam. So He went back, and as it is, within three and half years He was crucified. At the time of His death He said so many beautiful things for forgiveness, but ultimately He said “Behold the Mother.” That means you should hope for the Mother. And in His lifetime He Read More …

Public Program Kolkata (India)

Public Program (Hindi) Netaji Indoor Stadium I bow to you all the seekers of truth. In this Kaliyuga, man has become distracted and is fearful of the various problems. Never before, were there as many seekers of truth, as there are in this Kaliyuga; and, these are the times when you will find the truth. But we must understand, what truth are we seeking, what are we seeking? Otherwise, we get glued to something and then start believing it to be true. The reason being, we are still unaware of truth— the absolute truth. Some people wonder if this is good or that is good, and then there are others who believe there is another way of living. So, man is caught in such tumultuous delusions of the heart. In this confusion, he fails to understand why there is no peace within him; or how to establish this peace. He can’t comprehend, why am I fighting and bickering with myself, unable to understand anything. This is the special quality of Kaliyuga and that is why man has is seeking in these times. Earlier, there weren’t such delusions; the man was content with humanity. But now man has evolved to a certain state. In this state, if you would be aware of only the truth, then there would be no fights, and everyone would think the same. Moreover, by explaining or telling about something, man becomes too brainy and mental. Even by reading too much, he becomes mental and there is Read More …

The Essence of Holi. The Spring Festival of Colour. New Delhi (India)

Shri Mataji Nirmala Devi, New Delhi, 17-3-1995. It is Holi today. Holi these days, is quite different from what it used to be. We must know the essence of Holi. By burning all the rubbish collected in us, we get a surge of love in a clean heart. Which makes everyone so joyful. Hence first of all we must bum all our negativites. There should not be any politics in Sahaja Yoga. The society is in a vice like political grip. Sahaja Yogis get affected by this situation. An immature Sahaja Yogi may say something to another Sahaja Yogi in the influence of his conditioning. That can affect the other Sahaja Yogi and he may in turn say this to someone else. This may give rise to a wave that can spread like the flu. This is a disease (politics) and it spreads far and wide. In the olden days, women folk used to do politicing and men folk used to fight but now it is the reverse which is happening. Anyone who desires his ascent, must not get trapped in such activities. It is a massive compassion. I watch everything but don’t speak. Sahajyogis should not have any animosity between each other. Like ’Narada sage’, Sahaja Yogis also increase rivalry by telling non-sensical things to each other. Increasing rivalry between Sahaja Yogis, the network of love breaks. We must love Sahaja Yoga, we must love Mother. Still, all this is less than what we used to be. Now people Read More …

Shri Ganesha Puja: Spiritual Dimension Kalwa (India)

1994-12-31 Shri Ganesha Puja Kalwa Translation of the Talk in Hindi Today we are going to perform Shri Ganesha Pooja. Shri Ganesha Pooja is most essential. Because of Shri Ganesha only there is holiness spread in the whole world. Today, whatever problems we are seeing is because you have not yet recognised our greatness. And we do not know why we have not recognised its importance. And we do not know as to why we have come in this world and what work we are doing, and what we have to do? In order to understand this, today, Sahaja Yoga has come to this world. Whatever terrible condition of the world is due to the Kali yuga, you know about it. I do not have to tell you about this. But, we should know that the human being has been separated from righteousness (“dharma”). Like the faith humans had, has now become superficial. There is no interiority (“aantarikta”). People are not able to understand how to recognise Shri Ganesha. What should be there in their life? But this is very difficult. However, much you explain, whatever you say, humans do not understand how they can accept Shri Ganesha. If on one side they are blessed by Shri Ganesha and are nourished, then they are very pure. They reflect. That is not the point. if you are a very honest person it is alright. But if you fall short in honesty (“naitikta”), then it is wrong. If you are not able 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 …

Public Program – Satya Ki Khoj Faridabad (India)

Public Program – Satya Ki Khoj, 21 february 1994 Translation from Hindi: Jai Ganesh Sri Ganesh Jai Sri Mataji I bow to all seekers of truth. Today, the search for truth is in full swing. Besides our Country, other countries are also in search of truth in full swing. But while searching for truth, we  do not know the actual matter which has to be searched. Groping in darkness, we do not know which wrong path we are taking. While searching for truth, my advice to the seeker is not to trust anybody , including me, with blind faith. Blind faith may cause losses. Many eminent people came to world and gave important advice. People started spreading blind faith and because of this, they got lost.  People started fighting with each other, and as a result, humanity has gone down. All great incarnations, great gurus, and munis clearly mentioned that you identify yourself and realise about your Atma,  (another matter which is most important).  Without understanding yourself, you do not know what you are.  Another thing which is very important is this. Prem shrushti which has spread all over is explained in various ways, like in Bible, it is mentioned as cool breeze of Holy Ghost. In Quran it is called as Rooh, in every discipline, it is described as Chaitanya. What  is spread in all four corners, is called as Shrushti. The meaning of this is that we should achieve one thing from all . This is our foremost Read More …

Public Program – Paise Ke Peeche Daur Noida (India)

Public Program – Paise Ke Peeche Daur, Noida, India (Hindi), 30.11.1994 Translation from Hindi: My salutations to all those saints, who are seeking the truth. Because of the several virtues of the previous birth, human seeks the truth. While seeking the truth he doesn’t know, (later on), he doesn’t know what exactly the truth is. But from within him, a very powerful feeling awakens, espacially in foreign countries. This feeling flickers from within, which wriggles from within, some peculiar strong desire like this is found in them. These are the seekers from previous birth. These people search the truth in mountains and caves. And this is mentioned in our scriptures that, in this terrible age of vices, people who are seeking their Spirit in the mountains and caves, will come to this world, in the form of householders, and these householders only will achieve the knowledge of the Spirit. This is the destiny. In the text named “Nadi Granth” which was written by “Bhrigu Muni”, it is very clearly mentioned that in this era of vices (Kali Yuga), you will attain the Spirit. That is why you find that a large number of people have taken birth in this era of vices, although, this era is so terrifying that, even to desire to be born in this era is very surprising. But the only reason people have taken birth in this era is to gain knowledge of the truth. But after taking birth, they forgot why they had taken their Read More …

Public Program – Kundalini Ek Mahan Shakti (Kundalini, a Great Power) New Delhi (India)

1994-1129 Public Program–Kundalini Ek Mahan Shakti (Kundalini, a Great Power) New Delhi I bow to all the seekers of truth. At the onset, we must know what is the truth. Whatever I wish to speak about, must not be taken as blind faith. I say this repeatedly at every place, that blind faith has caused lot of damage to us and this country. Those great souls who said many things of immense significance and departed after working out several noble tasks, have long been forgotten and those who want to make money in the name of religion and those want to mislead seekers in the name of religion, have in fact, destroyed the works of all those great incarnations. And all of us being innocent seekers, trying to find the answers in darkness, have a tendency to cling onto anything and do not even think if that is leading us to the path of truth or pushing us towards evil. These people are hankering after our money as they believe money is everything and they can take away a seeker’s money by fooling and conning them , by mesmerizing them. It is important to note that God does not want our money nor does He understand our banks. These are all manmade institutions. There are several evil people like these, who have come in this Kalyuga (modern times). And in this terrible time of Kalyuga only, the lights of Diwali (festival of lights) will have to be illuminated. There cannot Read More …

Penetrate into the depth of reality Los Angeles (United States)

Persian Public Program, Wednesday, September 28th, 1994 I bow to all the seekers of truth. At the very outset we have to understand that truth it what it is. We cannot change it we cannot transform it, above all at this human awareness we cannot know it. This is the main reason that we have different ideas, ideologies because we don’t know what is the absolute truth. To seek the absolute truth one has to know that something more has to happen to our awareness. Through our evolutionary process we have to achieve a different higher awareness. This consciousness or this seeking has been there since long everywhere. But now in this modern times it has become very serious. But unfortunately people don’t know what to seek and they are mislead. First of all whatever I am going to tell you, you don’t have to take it for granted. Because we have had big problems with this blindfolded faiths. So whatever I am going to tell you, you have to take it like a scientist with an open mind. I am putting forward you a hypothesis. And if this hypothesis is proved then it is better we accept it because it is for the benevolence of your being, for the benevolence of your country, for the benevolence of the whole world. It has been promised in all the scriptures that such and such time will come when people will achieve their self-knowledge, their self-realisation. But unfortunately, human being are so Read More …

Public Program and Impressions, Evening Natura Artis Magistra, Amsterdam (Holland)

Public Program in Hindi, Artis, Amsterdam, 31st July 1994, Translation I bow to all the seekers of truth. First of all you should know that truth is what it is. You cannot change it. You cannot describe it. And the biggest thing to understand is that it cannot have any kind of reconciliation, or compromise with untruth. Truth is absolute. It cannot be different. People talk of different things, there is definitely something wrong there. So one should know first what this truth is. Truth is that you are not this mind, body, not all your thoughts or your emotions. You are the true spirit. Unless you become one with the spirit you cannot get any satisfaction. Your search may never be over. So let us desire to become the spirit. People explain numerous things to you. Do this or that. Do penances, do fasts. You have done it all in your previous birth. This birth is to achieve the truth. And to get the truth, the right time has also come. It is very beautifully described in the “Nal Damayanti Vyakhyaan” how this time had to come. Once Nal caught hold of Kali and wanted to kill him, because Kali made him part with his wife. Nal said it is good for Kali to die. It should be his end. Kali said, “Let me die, but first hear my Mahatmya (significance).” “What is your Mahatmya? You only put confusion into the minds of people.” asked Nal. He replied, “When Read More …

Afternoon, Interview with Hindustan TV station Varikstraat Ashram, Amsterdam (Holland)

Interview with Hindustan TV station, Varikstraat Ashram, Amsterdam, 31st July 1994, English Transcript (in progress) Shri Mataji: If you speak?Interviewer: If you could speak a little loudly, we have the opportunity to have this small conversation for our newspaper for the Surinam Community here in Holland, especially the Hindu Community.Shri Mataji: Very good.Interviewer: First of all, we would like to know the Sahaja Yoga. Tell something, its importance to practice this for the- especially in this society.Shri Mataji: Very much important. Because, you see, this is- all this knowledge is from Indian philosophy. It’s a very ancient knowledge. They used to have, say, Vedas, we can call them. On the right side, they were searching for knowledge outside. And the another one was the knowledge about the worship, that we can call as the pujas and archas and all that. But in the center was the system for awakening your Kundalini and to making you a real Realized soul, that we call is the one who is knowledgeable, who is the Gnostic as they said, ‘gna’. […] Translation from Hindi Q: Shri Mataji, can you give your introduction in short? Shri Mataji: Introduction is such that, I belong to the family Shalivahanas. Both my father and mother were great disciples of Gandhiji. And my father was a member of the Constituent Assembly and also the parliament. My mother was honours in mathematics. I have a brother who is a cabinet minister. But spiritually it was my parents who recognised me, Read More …

Mahashivaratri Puja: Surrender New Delhi (India)

Mahashivaratri Puja. Delhi (India), 14 March 1994. English Transcript It’s a great pleasure that from all over the world people have gathered to worship Shiva. Actually we should say it is Sadashiva that we are going to worship today. As you know the difference between Sadashiva and Shri Shiva. Sadashiva is the God Almighty and He is a witness of the play of the Primordial Mother. The combination between Sadashiva and the Primordial Mother Adi Shakti is just like a Moon and the moonlight or the Sun and the sunlight. We cannot understand such relationship in human being, among human marriages or among human relationships. So, whatever the Adi Shakti’s creating, which is the desire of Sadashiva, is being witnessed by Him. And when He is watching this creation He is witnessing all of it into all details. He witnesses the whole universe and He also witnesses this Mother Earth, all the creation that is done by the Adi Shakti. His power is of witnessing and the power of Adi Shakti is this All-pervading Power of love. So, the God Almighty, the Father, the Primordial Father we can say, expresses his desire, his Iccha Shakti [shakti of his desire] as the Primordial Mother and She expresses her power as love. So, the relationship between the two is extremely understanding, very deep. And whatever She’s creating, if She finds- if He finds there is some problem or there are people, human beings specially who are trying to obstruct her work, or Read More …

Ardha Matra Volume 2 Interview New Delhi (India)

Ardha Matra Volume 2 Interview Translation from Hindi Reporter: Through Kundalini awakening we can achieve our Self-realization.  In various ancient scriptures too, it has been described. The founder of Sahaja Yoga, Shri Mataji Nirmala Devi has given experience of self-realization through Kundalini awakening, to hundreds of thousands of people throughout the world. Sahaja yoga is gaining popularity in more than seven countries as of today. Ardha Matra had an exclusive meeting with Shri Mataji about the Kundalini power and Sahaja yoga. We are presenting excerpts from the same interview… Reporter: In Ramayana TV serial, we watched Sage Valmiki giving knowledge of Kundalini power to princes Luv and Kush. Kindly tell us in details about this happening and Kundalini power. Shri Mataji: Kundalini power does reside within us. If Valmiki told about this, then it must be true because he was a great man.  He knew that no matter how much knowledge one attains but until unless self-realisation is achieved, one remains incomplete. Now about this power… in our country many people knew about this for ages and they were called Gurus..masters [sadguru].  These people had attained this knowledge through very hard penance. A power names as Kundalini resides in our triangular bone. And we call it Kundalini because it’s sits in the shape of three and a half coil. It is very surprising it that even Greeks knew about this. Because the triangular bone where Kundalini resides, they call it “Sacrum” (means sacred) bone. It means there is this sacred Read More …

Shri Mahalakshmi Puja: The pangs of materialism Kalwa (India)

Mahalakshmi Puja in Kalwa, 1993-12-31, India Tour [Translated from Hindi] In today’s world we are facing so many difficulties and while facing all these difficulties, we are thinking that one day all the human race will disappear. It will not. And to think like that is quite normal as we are facing natural calamities all around. In Maharashtra, there was a very big earthquake and people were so afraid of that. Since last three years, I was telling them why they are drinking alcohol in front of Shri Ganesha, dancing dirty, misbehaving, etc. Shri Ganesha is very wrathful. I do not know why He tolerated this for three years. I told them very clearly that if you go on like this, you would face earthquake in Maharashtra. However, nobody listened to me and carried on with their misbehavior in front of Lord Ganesha. Alcohol is available everywhere in Maharashtra. Now, I see that there are two types of people in Maharashtra, one is alcoholic (mlechas) and other are pure and clean like Sahaj community. If you want to save your children and to give them good environment, then try to bring them in Sahaj culture and to accept it yourself. I am receiving everyday ten to fifteen letters from Sahaja Yogis how their difficulties disappeared, their children are behaving good, were saved from accidents, etc. So, I think that the benefits of Sahaja Yoga must reach to others also who are not Sahaja Yogis. Nowadays, many kind of people come Read More …

Public Program Galat Guru evam paise ka chakkar, Dehradun (India) Date: 12 December 1993 Place: Dehradun, (India) Type: Public Program Speech language: English, Hindi Sahaja Yogis in background in chorus are saying ‘Shri Mataji ki Jai’.   Sahaja Yogi announcing in background: Now Sri Arun Goyal will offer garlands to Her Holiness Shri Mataji on behalf of all the Sahaja Yogis of the world. (Claps in the background). Shri Mataji talking in Hindi in background: The light is so bright that it is not clearly seen. 01.06 secs (Youtube) Have you brought the water? [English translation from Hindi] If all of you sit down, it will be very nice.  I bow down to all the seekers of truth. In this world we seek happiness, we seek joy and we do not know what the source of joy is. The truth is that this body, wisdom, ego, feelings and sacraments, are not all these titles. We are pure form of spirit. This is one truth, and the other truth is like what you see here is the decoration of beautiful flowers, I don’t know how many you have kept. These flowers are also a miracle that one seed you sow in this Earth such beautiful varieties of flowers bloom. We consider it as a miracle. If you ask the Doctor that ‘who works on our heart’, then he will say ‘it is an autonomous nervous system’, ‘self-driven.’ But what is this self-driven force? They cannot answer this question.

Public Program: Parmatma ki Science Kurushetra (India)

PARMATAMA KI SCIENCE-PUBLIC PROGRAMME KURUKSHETRA: DEC 8, 1993 [Translation from Hindi to English] Sahaja yogi (Anchor):    My first request to you that we will run the programme as long as you wish. if you say half an hour it will be half an hour. if you wish for one hour, it will be one hour or afterwards. While Shri Mataji tells about Sahaja Yoga, if it’s continuity breaks, she does not like it.  The second request is for the brothers who have come to listen only, should sit with love. And people who have come as spectator only. Then its of no use. They will disturb others also. They are requested to go out. They may listen from outside. But, if they are standing inside the pandal, then they are requested to sit down.  All my foreign brothers and sisters, I would like to explain little constraints  in Kurukshetra. But straight away, I beg your pardon for two small mistakes that young boys did here. One- by mistake they issued some vouchers for which I am very sorry because this was a mistake. These boys, young boys who are managing the program here, are very young. Below 24 years of age. It was the duty of the Yamunanagar and Karnal Sahaj Yogis to come and help them here but for some reason they had to go to Hathini Kund, and they could not come here. I am sure that you will excuse us for this small mistake. And I Read More …

Shri Ganesha Puja: He is the manifestation of the invisible Param Chaitanya New Delhi (India)

Shri Ganesha Puja. Delhi (India), 5 December 1993. [Translation from Hindi to English] Today we are going to perform Puja to Shri Ganesha.  We are starting the tour, and it is important to begin it with a Puja to Shri Ganesha.  Especially in Delhi, Ganesha Puja is very necessary.  Though we know very little about Shri Ganesha,  in Maharashtra there are eight Ganeshas (Ashta Vinayaka), and there is Maha Ganesha in Ganapatiphule.  And that is why they worship Shri Ganesha a lot.  But what is his essential existence; and who exactly is Shri Ganesha – very few people know this. Now, whatever I am going to tell you about Shri Ganesha, being Sahaja Yogis, you will understand.  But other people cannot understand.    The rest of the world, especially intellectuals who claim to be wise and intelligent, can perceive Sahaja Yoga, but the fact that the Gods and Goddesses are involved in actualising Sahaja Yoga, they are not prepared to accept.  Even they cannot comprehend Param Chaitanya; and try to explain it by calling it Cosmic Energy.  But whether they understand this or not; whether they accept this or not; in the beginning, even before this world came into existence, Paramatma (the God Almighty) and Adi Shakti felt that first, purity and auspiciousness should be established.  If holiness is put into the creation first, and it spreads all over the Cosmos, then only Chaitanya (vibrations) will start to flow.  For example, if Chaitanya spreads all over the creation, it will become Read More …

Public Program Kidwai Nagar, New Delhi (India)

India Tour, Public Program in Kidwai Nagar, 1993-12-03 Shri Mataji: [In Hindi]: My greetings to all the seekers of Truth! I’ve been told like this, that first speak in English and then speak in Hindi. Do you all agree with this? [English part; From 13:59 to 38:30] I bow to all the seekers of truth. At the very outset, we have to know what is the truth and what are we seeking why this seeking has started in these recent years. We have science by which we have overgrown outwardly. We have different devices by which our life has become more comfortable, maybe. But science cannot answer many questions. But science cannot answer many questions. And one of the questions it cannot answer, is, “Why are we here on this Earth?” Also science is amoral. It does not give you any line of action that will benefit you and that will nourish you. Of course, there’s nothing against science as such, but it is very incomplete and takes people into imbalances. There are so many defects which I I’m not going to describe today. But main thing is that it does not give you the idea of reality. It does not give you the totality. Also, it does not give you any ascent in your spiritual life.So much in the West, also in India, not to that extent but, yes quite a lot, we have progressed in science in every way. What do we find? There’s a decline in the Read More …

Shri Mahavira Puja New Delhi (India)

Shri Mahavira Puja, Delhi, April 4th, 1993 (translated from Hindi) Shri Mahavira resides on our Ida nadi and rules it. All the “samskara” [mental impressions] that we have in us are corrected by him. He has defined and explained what is Hell, what happens when humans go to Hell, the way they suffer in Hell, and he has explained this in every detail. Buddha and Mahavira were contemporaneous and both of them had a life of penance. Both of them were princes. But still, both of them dedicated themselves in tapasya. And they found out that when humans make mistakes and go to the left side then they go to Hell and they suffer. Hell has to be experienced in this world. A human can stop this before his death. If he is very sinful and he is committing lots of sins and does not run away from it and does not understand that it is wrong. So people like this in today’s modern times will be destroyed by themselves from inside. For this, no outside energy is required. Because they get so much of false wisdom (buddhi). So they themselves prepare to destroy themselves. Sometimes they think they are very well and think who could touch them. So all of these will be destroyed and only these humans who will not raise themselves from human awareness. I don’t know how many of them will be saved. There are so much of demonic powers that are active and they are Read More …

Advice on Gudi Padwa New Delhi (India)

Advice Given By H. H. Shri Mataji, Gudi Padwa, March 24, 1993, New Delhi, India. Synopsis, translated from HindiFirst version:Today is the first day of Satya Yuga (Age of truth).Nature will tell you that Satya Yuga has started. Sahaja Yoga has brought forth Satya Yuga. You are self-Realized, you should have confidence and faith in yourself. You should have faith in the working of Sahaja Yoga. What work is being done in your enlightened faith? There should be complete faith. Look at me. I have spreadSahaja Yoga by Myself. Just have faith in ‘Param Chaitanya’. If you have any doubt, ask Me. Paramatma (the Supreme Spirit) is not here right now, however I am here to speak to you. Therefore, sahaj yogis should be doubt free now.1. The leaders should be very careful. They should be without ego. They are merely a medium to pass on the message just like to post a letter I have to put it into an envelope. They should beware of being master-like.2. While planning anything, our attention should be on the most important thing. Your priorities should be clear.3. If there is any negativity, tell Me and I will sort it out.4. Often, organisers start worrying about money. In Sahaj Yoga, money will always be available. But if you worry about it, then it will not be. Money is not that important.5. We should use our discretion for each other.6. You should not have any fear. This is only a play that is going Read More …

Public Program: Sahaja Yoga Introduction New Delhi (India)

Public Program, Sahaja Yoga Introduction, New Delhi (India), 23-03-1993 [English Translation from Hindi] You have asked Me a question, “We have desires and cravings how do I …” Please be seated …”how do I control them from within, as I am not that strong internally, though I am practicing Sahaja Yoga?” Now in Sahaja Yoga you have to understand that relationship with your wife only, is a religious thing. We do not encourage celibacy. Those who live a celibate life normally don’t get Self-realization. I tell single people to get married. Then you will attain your Self-realization; otherwise, you won’t. (Clapping in the crowd) Now, to get married you should understand that this year eighty-six couples were married. Every year, seventy-five to eighty-six couples get married in Sahaja Yoga, and this has been happening for the last ten years or maybe more. Maybe only three to four marriages failed, because our Indian girls lost their minds. Girls from foreign lands are very sensible. You will be surprised to know the way they have absorbed Sahaja Yoga into their lives. Our Indian girls are perplexed; some go there and act out dramas. Five to six Indian girls have really troubled us. A few families were wrong for marrying their mentally unstable daughters in Sahaja Yoga. But now, when everything is getting better, I will tell you that desires mean that your eyes roam around here and there. With Sahaja Yoga your eyes will stabilize and not roam. Foreigners used to tell Read More …

Public Program (Morning) New Delhi (India)

MORNING PUBLIC PROGRAM IN SCOUT CAMP NEW DELHI 22.3.1993 [Hindi to English translation] I am told lots of new people have arrived. Please raise your hands. As I told you, it is a subtle knowledge and to know it you have to become subtle. Do you all understand English? New people don’t know?  Shall I tell in Hindi?  Ok. Sit down. Knowledge of Sahaja Yoga is a subtle knowledge and to achieve this subtle knowledge, we must also be subtle. And what is this subtleness (sukshmata)? That we should be like Spirit – I have told you in my lectures. We have to be like Spirit.  And from this Spirit only, we can understand this subtle knowledge. Because the Spirit has its own light. And when that light appears on us, in the light of that Spirit only, we can know this subtle knowledge. This Spirit is inside us. This reflection of God is inside us like Spirit. And this Kundalini which is the power, will power of the Divine, Adishakti,  is its reflection. So when Kundalini rises, which is in three and half coil,  Coil is called  Kundal.  Hence its name is Kundalini and this three and half coils does not rise fully.  Just like there are lot of threads tied in a rope, similarly in this Kundalini also there are lot of strands.

H.H.Shri Mataji Nirmala Devi visits the shrine of the Sufi saint, Nizamuddin, in Delhi, India. (1993-0320). Shri Mataji: We worship Mohammad Sahib, you do not do puja but we do puja to Mohammad Sahib Muslim priest: Wah (wow) Shri Mataji: We do (worship) Ali, Mohammad and all other great souls. We worship and believe them all. We worship them, we believe them all. Also Rama, Shri Krishna, Isa Masiah (Jesus) Mahavir, Buddha. They (referring to yogis) worship and pray all because they have understood that all are flowers of the  same tree.  All these flowers (referring to incarnations and saints) have come from one tree only, but we pluck these flowers and then now are fighting for these dead flowers. The flowers that are alive that is what we need I know of.  Let us see now we have Hindus, Muslims, Jew (talks to the priest) the doctor that said he is a Jew, these are people (yogis) from all countries, there are Japanese, and from all countries from 56 countries. In Russia we have such people in thousands. Now they (yogis) all have become Sufis.  Until this does not happen there cannot be harmony and peace and we will not get any peace or happiness.  This hatred is not going to benefit anyone, whether be a Muslim or a Hindu. Everything else is useless Priest: yes, that is true Shri Mataji: And this is what we are doing. Now only few have come here, only few chosen group have come here. Otherwise in each Read More …

Public Program: Ye Bhumi Atyant Pavitra bhumi hain New Delhi (India)

Public Program, Ye Bhumi Atyant Pavitra bhumi hain, New Delhi 20-th March 1993 [English Translation from Hindi] 0- 5.17 – Bhajan 1 – Namami Shri Ganraj Dayal bhajan by Sanjay Roshan Talwar 6.09- 11.52 – bhajan 2 – Jago Kundalini Maa bhajan by Sanjay Roshan Talwar 12.58 -21.47         Bhajan 3 – Vishav Vandita Nirmala Mata by Sanjay Roshan Talwar Speech – 22.05  My dear fellow Indians, all those who were speaking the truth on behalf of the international Sahaja Yoga family, I welcome you all and my salutations to you all. In today’s environment we all know that we need something that gives us balance on a personal level as well as on a collective level, because of which we all can live peacefully in an environment which is beneficial for each one of us and we attain joy which is our birthright. It’s been a really long time that we have waited for the other person to change. It could be a country or a household, maybe us as an individual, but we all know that we remain the same and never change. Nothing changed; neither the other person changed, nor we changed. So many kugurus took birth on Earth. I have intentionally used the word kuguru. Anyone who cannot give us the Divine will be only called a kuguru. On this I think you will agree with me. Today at this time among ourselves during this 20th century, Shri Mataji Nirmala Devi has taken Her birth, and if Read More …

Mahashivaratri Puja Mumbai (India)

Mahashivaratri Puja, Mumbai, February 19th, 1993 (Hindi); (English part at the end; 2 mn) Hindi Translation [First video: bhajan, “Shankar Bhole Bhale” (Hindi 78); talk starts at 15:45.] We have all assembled here to worship Lord Shiva. And this puja is very important one because the final goal of human being / life is to find Shiva Tattva. Shiva tattva is beyond human mind. Until you get your self-realization, until you know yourself / your spirit (atma) you cannot know Shiva tattva. There is a lot of pomp, darkness and blind devotion spread in the name of Shri Shiva. But a non-realized person cannot understand Shri Shiva because his nature is such that to understand him first a human being has to be in such a state where all great tattva’s or qualities are present by themselves. It is said about him that he is Bhole (innocent) shankar. There are a lot of intellectual / intelligent people these days who by virtue of their intellect write nonsense and say that Shri Shiva is innocent. As per these intellectual people being innocent is useless. These days the more cunning and sly a person is he becomes that famous and popular. Then how do we understand the innocence of Shri Shiva? In today’s world an innocent person is deemed stupid. But Shri Shiva’s innocence is such that he is everything. Imagine if a person is extremely rich and he is feels disgusted (virakt) and people come and steal money from him then 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 …

Public Program: Satya Apni Jagah Adig Hai Yamunanagar (India)

SATYA APNI JAGAH ADIG HAI 3.4.1992 (TRUTH IS FIRM IN ITS PLACE) I bow to all the seekers of truth. First of all, we have to understand that Truth is firm in its place, which we cannot change, about which we cannot even imagine and we cannot know it in this human awareness. Today, whatever questions are in front of us, all those questions are focused in human mind. Man has raised these questions and he is standing in his own belief. In darkness, in his ignorance, man cannot see and because of this, he adopts all types of destruction and all types of problems. By giving lecture or advice or speech, it will make no difference to him. As such, lot of people give speech and everyone starts talking about Truth and give lectures. They read some books and start giving lectures on this. But, it is very difficult for human mind to accept this. The reality is that we have still not achieved the status where we can imbibe all this in us and know the truth.  That awareness has to be awakened within us and that Truth is established in our heart in the form of Spirit which watches us as to what we are doing and keeps an eye on all our activities and what is its effect on human mind. That is why it is not in our attention. To bring it to our attention, there is only one way God has created and that Read More …

Shri Saraswati Puja Yamunanagar (India)

Shri Saraswati Puja, 2nd April 1992, Yamuna Nagar, Translation from Hindi We should worship Shri Saraswati. Shri Saraswati’s work is very great. MahaSaraswati made the Space(antariksh) first. In this, the earth element is special. The earth is placed in between the sun and the moon so that all kinds of a living organism can grow there easily. From this living organism gradually evolved human beings. But we must understand the great power of ourselves. That power in us which is called srajan shakti, the creative power in us. This power is the blessing of Shri Saraswati due to which all the various art forms originated. The outback of art is due to the blessings of Shri Saraswati. I am very happy that today the Saraswati puja is in a college. In the neighbourhood, there are also many schools and colleges. Seems like this place is specially made for Saraswati puja. Our children learn in schools. But we have to pay attention that without Self realization, (without the attainment of the soul, Atma) all the education, learning is not learning. Without( Atmasakshatkar), self-realization whether we study science or economics we cannot understand that fully nor can we bring about any creativity in it. Children are of two types. Children who are interested in studies and children who are not interested in studying. Some children have less intelligence /brain and some more.Brains(buddhi) is the gift of Shri Saraswati but from the spirit(Atma) Man develops good sense. Until the knowledge gained from the Read More …

Public Program Day 1 New Delhi (India)

Public Program Day 1  23.3.1992 I bow to all the seekers of Truth. We have to accept that till now we have not got the truth, i.e absolute truth we have not got. If we accept most humbly that we have not achieved that absolute truth, which is established in the same way, same thoughts and same emotions inside everyone. Whatever be the reason for this, we can see  that later but if we think about ourselves, then human beings have not achieved the status yet that they can know only absolute truth. If he had known about the truth, then today  so many types of quarrels, so many conflicts and so many different types of opinion and systems would not have started. If everyone had followed the same thing, because we do not know the absolute truth, just like in blindness, six blind people had gone to look for an elephant, and in their blindness, they all  understood in six different ways, just like that we do not know the truth,  the reality. And that is why all these disasters are there. Just like there are so many questions in front of us and everyone thinks there is no solution to this. Like today we have environment problem, ecological problem is there, political problem is there, economic problem is there, family problems are there and we have our own personal problems. Physical, mental, material and also spiritual problems are there. For everything there is a question. Life has become Read More …

Birthday Puja: You can absorb the essence of all the religions New Delhi (India)

Birthday Puja. Delhi, India. 21 March 1992. Translation from Hindi You people have celebrated this birthday, with so much love and affection, that I do not understand what to say. It is true that you all have got self-realization in Sahaja Yoga, and I might have told you about this, but the energy is yours alone. Your energy got awakened, and you achieved it due to your own energy. So, I don’t think there are many contributions from my side. You have to think one more thing that I am, whatever I am, there was no need for me to become anything, but It is your specialty that you all became something special. You received and achieved something which was your own. It is such a great thing, that you got enlightened by your own spirit. Earlier, it was told that only the Masters got enlightened, but today all the Sahaja Yogis have got enlightened. And also, think that Sahaja Yogis have become such nice people, how honest you all have become. People follow different religions and follow all the rules and regulations religiously, they do fasting, go to the Himalayas, stand upside down, they do different things, but there is no enlightenment of the spirit inside them. That is why, whatever religion they follow, Whatever system they follow, whichever Guru (master) they are with, there is no light within them. For example, you may accept a Guru, but you cannot become like him. You have just accepted him. Like Read More …

Birthday Puja Mumbai (India)

Birthday Puja Date 17th March 1992, Mumbai [English translation from Hindi, scanned from English Divine Cool breeze] You have celebrated my birthday with so much love. You got your self realisation, and the special thing is that you became something and gained something. I am what I am. I don’t have to become anything. It is such a great thing that you got self enlightened through your Spirit. All Sahaja Yogis have now become so good and dharmic. If you see people who belong to other religions they follow their rules and regulations with great difficulty: they fast, go to the Himalaya stand on their heads and do various things but still their Spirit is not enlightened. They will believe in some guru or God, but do they try to become like that guru? To believe means nothing when their gurus’ shaktis and qualities have not enlightened them. No religion is bad in itself. It is the way people have followed them. Some went into the.right and some into the left. dead body. Even in Nepal the left side has grown so much that they do tantrik vidya, bhoot and shamshan vidya. Thus two types of people were created in Buddha Dharma. Buddha has no connection with them and vice versa. The same thing is there in Christianity. They wanted to gain some powers within so they crucified people and did all sorts of things in the name of Christ. Even now you will see in Armenia how they killed Read More …

The Spirit comes into your attention, when you are completely enlightened Brisbane (Australia)

Public Program Day 2. Brisbane (Australia), 21 February 1992. I bow to all the seekers of truth. As I told you yesterday that truth is what it is. We cannot transform it, we cannot change it and we cannot know it at human awareness. I never read scriptures as I don’t think I have to read them because I know them. But I was reading the Koran and also the Bible from this Christian science thing, all other scriptures also. I mean, what they are saying is absolutely true: that you have to be righteous, you have to be above violence, you have to be detached. All these things are absolutely the same, no doubt. There is no change. In all these scriptures they say the same thing. This was said about 8000 years back by Shri Rama then by Shri Krishna, then it was said by Socrates, Lao Tze, Abraham – all of them have said the same thing. Then Mohammed Sahib said the same thing, Nanaka said the same thing. Now what’s wrong? Still we find all these people are not what they are supposed to be and it’s admitted. And they give explanation for that. Like I’m reading the intellectuals from Islam. They said that Islam is very different from Muslims but they must get educated. If they get educated in Islam they’ll be alright. I’ve seen many Islamic people who are very well educated – there is nothing of the kind. They are just like anybody Read More …

Meaning of Sahaja Yoga Kolkata (India)

PUBLIC PROGRAM SAHAJA YOGA KA ARTH (MEANING OF SAHAJA YOGA)  1992-02-05 KOLKATA INDIA [English Transcript] Shri Mataji: First you must get realised. Then you will know who is the real guru; who is not. But as a Mother, I would say, you have a guru [UNCLEAR] why are you keeping a guru? Minimum. Any mother would say, “Baba, what is the use having the guru, when your health is not all right. Also, you have a guru and you are [UNCLEAR]. Then what’s the use of having such a guru? So there is something wrong, either with the guru or with yourself. So the best thing is – that first of all we must get in the position in the [UNCLEAR/state] by which we ourselves can know who is right and who is wrong. Who is real, who is unreal. These days these gurus are available everywhere. You know that. Anybody calls himself a guru. I mean, in [UNCLEAR] name, especially in Calcutta, everybody says, “I am he. I am he. I am he”. Arre baba, if you are [UNCLEAR/“this”], all right. What speciality have you got that is [UNCLEAR/distinct]? What did you get as this personality? What, are you different from others, or you have in one way become a fundamentalist?  Then some will say, “I am Jain”. “I am Christian”. “I am Hindu”. “I am Musalman”. What is the difference between a Musallman and a Hindu? If there is a difference, fine. Except one will put the clothes Read More …

The symptoms of our destruction Mumbai (India)

1992-01-29 Public Program Day 2, Mumbai, India [Hindi to English translation]       We don’t even know as to what we are searching. Some people think that, if they get power, they’ll be very happy, some think that, if they get too much money, they’ll be very pleased and some people also think that, if they become very powerful, they can overpower others but in this seeking you are seeking something else. But if this seeking of yours is right or good, still, even after attaining all this, you are not happy, you have no satisfaction even when you have got all this. Then, what is the inherent seeking you have? It should not be difficult for us to understand this because we are Indians living in India. We have been hearing day and night since our childhood that beyond this world, beyond this illusion, is the joy of the Spirit. We have to receive that joy of the Spirit. And this seeking in this Kaliyuga, I’m surprised, is working out even more in foreign countries as compared to India and there’s exportation of many people from our country, who take people to wrong paths and earn money. And when we see those people, who believe in God worship Him day and night, go to temples all the time and are doing all charitable work but they are not good humans, there’s no humanity in them, seeing this we become remorseful and we start thinking what should we understand from this pensiveness? Read More …

Shri Ganesha Puja: Sahaja Yoga Now At the Zenith Kalwa (India)

Shri Ganesha Puja. Kalwa (India), 31 December 1991. Translation from Hindi Today, first to do the puja of Shri Ganesh then Devi puja, we have assembled here. The belief in Shri Ganesha especially in Maharashtra, is very strong. Because here, Swayambhu [created by Mother Earth] Ashtavinayak [eight Ganeshas] is located. Now people can say that there was nothing like Ganesha. Also they can say that the Swayambhu is not Ashtavinayak. But once you get your Self Realisation, when you get your vibrations, then you can ask, “Is this Swayambhu? Is this really made by Earth?” Many miracles of Ganesha has taken place in Sahaja Yoga. Especially if you see My photographs, you will be astonished how He has given ‘darshan’ [appeared]. The significance of Ganesha is that He is seated on every chakra. First of all Ganesha was established. Ganesha came in the world to spread chastity. First to make the entire Universe pure. Most important thing is purity. If purity is not there then nothing can be created. Just supposing there is a tree. Its surroundings become polluted, then the trees will die. In the say way to purify the environment of the entire Universe, Shri Ganesha was established. These days in this environment, people cannot understand what is chastity? And what is the meaning of chastity? The same Ganesha later on appeared as Isa Masih [Jesus Christ]. That is the reason Isa Masih [Jesus Christ] has talked more about the significance of chastity. That even your eyes have Read More …

Christmas Puja Ganapatipule (India)

Christmas Puja. Ganapatipule (India), 24 December 1991. [Translation from Hindi] Today’s combination is very powerful. On the day of this special combination, which is called ‘Angaraki’- ‘Angaraki Chaturthi’ [fourth day] is the ‘charturthi’ [fourth day of lunar month] of ‘Krishna Paksha’ [waning phase of the moon]. On every ‘charturthi’ [fourth day] Shri Ganesha’s Birthday is celebrated. But if the ‘chaturthi’ falls on a Tuesday, it happens once in a while, sometimes once or sometimes twice or sometimes three times a year. If the ‘chaturthi’ falls on Tuesday then it is celebrated in a grand way. Today is the same ‘Yog’ [conjunction] where on a Tuesday, we are sitting here in Ganapati Pule where ‘Angaraki Yog’ is celebrated. Thousands of people come here to do the puja of Shri Ganesha. There was such a traffic jam that some sixty vehicles were in front, so we took a round-about road and came cause it’s no use going any faster. When something has to happen, it happens like this only. Till we understand this matter in Sahaja that whatever happens, we should watch it with patience. There should be patience. At that time if you hurry or if you become nervous, then the work will not happen. Have patience. Once you have patience, you will understand what to do and how to do. Rushing is against Sahaja. In Sahaja you should have patience. About this Sai Nath has told a lot – be patient. “Sai milat saburi mein” [you’ll find Sai in patience]. Read More …

Shri Mahalakshmi Puja: How do we get our Lakshmi principle satisfied? Jaysingpur (India)

Shri Mahalakshmi Puja, Jaysingpur (India), 21 December 1991. I am in a dilemma what language I should speak to you all. First I’ll speak in English, then in Hindi, then in Marathi. (Laughter) We all have come here to Kolhapur to worship the Mahalakshmi. And you all know about the importance of Mahalakshmi. That Sushumna Nadi is the channel for Mahalakshmi. But this principle of Mahalakshmi is only possible to manifest in us when our principle of Lakshmi is satisfied. When we see poverty in India we really get very upset about it, and think: “When will it be all right, when all these people will also get the blessings of the Divine?” [Hindi aside] So the principle of the Divine works through Mahalakshmi. It’s a vicious circle that you have to get to a point where your Lakshmi principle is satisfied and then only you start seeking, and that seeking comes from the Mahalakshmi principle within us. So Sahaja Yoga grows in the middle path, in the middle section of the society. Very rich will seldom come to Sahaja Yoga, and if they come only, they’ll just take few advantages of it, and they won’t understand the depth of it. In the same way the poor cannot come. So these are like the two shores of one river that is flowing in between, and if we start expanding it, then we will definitely shower the blessings of the Divine on all both the shores, and I’m sure lots of Read More …

Public Program Day 1: Kundalini Ek Mahan Shakti Pune (India)

KUNDALINI EK MAHAN SHAKTI -PUNE 16.12.1991  Translation from Hindi to English My greetings to all the seekers of truth. About truth, one thing we should know is that Truth is what it is. We cannot change it, nor can we tie it with our imagination and with this human awareness, we cannot know it. If we had known the truth that it is ekmev, absolute, after that, there would not be so much tension amongst us, so much quarrel and this type of ignorance would not be there at all. All the Saints, whether they were in India or in some foreign country, everyone had known the Truth and everyone had said the same thing. In our Maharashtra, one great incarnation was there by name Gyaneshwarji. Gyaneshwarji wrote Gyaneshwari at the age of 23 and apart from this, wrote one more beautiful and famous book named “Amrutanubhav”. Earlier, it was a custom that one Guru should have only one disciple only. This was the custom in Nathpanthi also. On one side, they were very ignorant, and on the other side, people were reading Vedas etc. But when it was the question of Self realization, it was Nathpanthis who said it was in Maharashtra. Like Machindra Nath, Gorakhnath. At that time, it was a custom that one Master should have only one disciple. But in twelfth century, Gyaneshwarji prayed to his respected Guru, who was also his elder brother, and requested him to give permission to tell about this knowledge to Read More …

Public Program Day 2 Hyderabad (India)

Public Program [Hindi]. Hyderabad, Andhra Pradesh (India), 12 December 1991. Yesterday, I told you in Sahaja Yoga how you can raise your Kundalini effortlessly, and after that you experienced it too. It is really simple, or Sahaj. Now, the question arises that many people ask Me, “Mother, if it is so simple, why was it difficult before?” This was never difficult. Someone asked Shivaji Maharaj’s guru, Ramdas Swami, “How much time does it take the Kundalini to awaken?” He replied, “Tat kshan,” meaning, that very second. But there should be a person to give, and also a person to receive. Before, there might have been many people to give but very few people to receive. Today, there are thousands of people to receive; that is why this has become easier. Today, I want to tell you about the spirit. Many people have said, “Attain the spirit. Achieve the spirit,” but it has never been formulated anywhere what “spirit” is, in a real sense. And what do we achieve out of this? No one explained clearly about the spirit, because maybe there were very few people at that time. Krishna also spoke about this, but only to Arjuna. Whatever he told Arjuna was such that a layman cannot understand it. Because Shri Krishna was a diplomat, a Divine diplomat, he knew that the human brain is perverted. Man cannot understand anything straightforward. His brain will accept only if it is told the other way around. This is a matter of a Read More …

Public Program Day 1 Hyderabad (India)

Public Program [Hindi]. Hyderabad, Andhra Pradesh (India), 11 December 1991. Translation from Hindi: I bow to the seekers of truth. When we talk about truth, we should understand that truth is unshakable and permanent. We cannot change the truth. We can neither conceive nor perceive the truth. Sadly, human conscious cannot even understand what is truth. We should always think how this beautiful nature full of trees, flowers and fruit is created ? How does our heart beat on its own?  Who is behind all this? We never think who has made our intricate and delicate camera within our eyes. We just take it for granted that we have two eyes. But how did they come to us? Which divine power is behind all these? This power is called as “ruthambara pragnya” by Pathanjali and is also known as” Bramha chaitanya”, “Paramchaitanya”, “rooh” or “All-pervading power of God’s love”. This power does all the living work, it has made us human beings from amoeba stage. But we should understand that if human beings are God’s last creation, then why are they incomplete? They have lots of defects and plenty of drawbacks. Their knowledge is limited. We do not have the capacity to recognise one or the other. That is why we keep fighting among ourselves. Restlessness in the whole world is because human beings do not recognise the truth. The truth is absolute. Once we recognise the truth, we start speaking the same language. Saints never fought among themselves. You Read More …

Dyan Ki Avashakta, On meditation New Delhi (India)

Need of meditation  New Delhi (India), 27 November 1991 Today, I have met you all after a long time and we should all understand about Sahaj yoga. Sahaj yoga has evolved for the benefit of whole world. And you all are its medium. Your responsibilities are too many because you all are its medium. No one else is the medium for it.  If we give the vibrations to any tree or to some temple or anywhere else. If we give these vibrations, it won’t be activated, it won’t work out. Only by your determination and your action, it is going to spread. Then, we have to understand that there is only one demerit in Sahaj Yoga. Although, it is Sahaj and you get it very easily. Even if you achieve it in Sahaj way, it is very difficult to sustain it, because we are not living in Himalayas. We are not living in any such place, where there is no other environment except spiritual environment. We are living in every kind of environment and because of that we have many kinds of attributes sticked to us. So, in Sahaj Yoga we have to work out purity within us and to become pure. For example, if any of the channels is there and if it is not all right, as the channel of electricity then electricity cannot travel through it. If it is the water tap and something it struck up inside then the water cannot pass through it, same way Read More …

Shri Rama Puja: Control your attention like Him Kolkata (India)

Shri Rama Navami Puja, Calcutta, India, 25/03/1991 [English translation from Hindi, First translation] We have gathered here on the occasion of Ram Navami. Everybody has said, “Mother please tell us about Shri Ram.” As you know that Shri Rama has taken a very important place in our chakras. He is sitting on our right heart. Shri Rama has taken a place of a father, so lack of father’s duty and love can cause a catch of this chakra. In Sahaja Yoga we can understand that Rama and all other gods came on earth with different power [shakti], they came to do their jobs. In the sense Shri Rama has a special job. Socrates has said benevolent king has to come. For that Shri Rama came. Shri Rama came in complete human form. He even forgot that he is an incarnation of Shri Vishnu. He was made to be forgotten. But he was Purushottam on earth [perfect human being]. You all must have heard of his qualities and his childhood. In Sahaja yoga when we worship any god, what quality we gain from them, which qualities we will receive? Shri Rama has many. One that he was ideal, another that he is a king. He kept his people higher than himself than his wife and children. If politicians today understand this point they wouldn’t be called selfish, they wouldn’t be selfish, would be follower of Dharma. Nobody has followed Shri Rama as a role model till today. By singing his bhajans Read More …

Birthday Puja Mumbai (India)

Birthday Puja, March 21, 1991, Mumbai, translation from Hindi The whole world is gleefully celebrating our birthday. All this makes me so emotional that till now no children would have loved their mother so much, like you love me. This is the glory of Shri Ganesha that he would behold His Mother above all deities and would be engrossed in Her service. Therefore, He could accomplish everything. It is a natural instinct for every mother to love her children and to sacrifice everything for them. And she doesn’t have any expectations from them. But, every mother desires her children to be of good character, and, earn name and fame. A worldly mother has such desires. But, the ranks of a Spiritual Mother that you have bestowed upon me, I don’t have any desires. I was thinking what I should talk about because I don’t have any desires. Probably in such a state no desires exist, yet without having any desires they are being fulfilled. You are doing everything even before a desire emanates, so what should I desire for. What I had wished and hoped for – that my children should be extremely virtuous, they must have a radiant temperament, must be munificent, valorous, working for everyone’s welfare – must own such a grandeur personality and must be great gurus. I can see it is happening; little less in some, more in others. I am also witnessing how you are going around the world to give self-realization to all people. Read More …

Public Program Mumbai (India)

Public Program in Hindi, Self Realization in English , 1991-03-19 [Translation from Hindi] About which he doesn’t know. Although in our India there has been a lot of work on Yoga but because of the onset of English rule all of us forgot our Great scriptures which worked a lot in the field of yoga. In Upanishads if you see particularly Shandilya Upanishad etc., it has been written long back that within you there is a power named kundalini and this power on getting awakened you can get your self realisation. This I will say certainly that very clearly whole outline has not been given in these Upnishads. But it is a matter of controversy that our many scriptures, Yogvashishth etc., in many scriptures as well it has very clearly been mentioned. Don’t know why do we consider knowledge from foreign countries as the best and our any asset in this country give it least importance don’t know its importance. Its reason may be is that we were under slavery for such a long time and we were overwhelmed by these people because they were ruling us. Now that we are free in that freedom we should observe what are our assests what is our history and what did we discover?

This state in which we are deeply immersed, and which we are enjoying, has reached a very high level, and its foundation or basis is very strong. This aadhar or foundation has enabled us to achieve a state of purity, and peace, and joy.  This is a state which cannot be felt by others.

Public Program: Prem Hi Paramatma Noida (India)

Public Program,  Prem Hi Parmatma (Love is God), Noida, 04 March 1991  Translation from Hindi: My salutations to all the seekers of truth.  People have a lot of conjectures and notions about the Truth.  But I am going to disclose to you a secret.  That Truth is the Love of Almighty God.  And nothing else.  Love is Truth; and Truth is Love. And that is Knowledge.  Up till now very few people have spoken about Love.  Because people have not been able to understand the truth about Love.  They have not been able to understand love. God is full of love, and He spreads love to everyone.  He is Rahim (merciful), and bestows blessings on everyone.  And He is the ocean of compassion.  Ocean of Love.  All such things have been said by many.  But what exactly is this love, not much discussion has been done.  As I told you, the reason for this is, that some think that love is Mamatva (affectionate attachment).  They can even interpret love as something else. But many wise people have said that God is the Ocean of Love.  But even if He is the ocean of love,  what exactly is He. No one would have been able to see the love in this ocean.  If anyone tries to find out, the ocean will drown him.  We have never heard that if a man is drowning, the ocean brings and leaves him safely on the shore.  In the ocean live all kinds of fearsome Read More …
