Mahashivaratri Puja New Delhi (India)

Mahashivaratri Puja (Hindi/English). Delhi (India), 9 February 1991. ENGLISH PART BEGINS FROM TIMESTAMP: 00:50:12 Today’s lecture was quite big for all of you who are here, I’m happy that you could all come down for the Shiva Puja and now as they have requested in Europe, also we are going to have a Shiva Puja on the 17th I think in Rome.They have never had a Shiva Puja in the West. And that’s why I have decided that we’ll have two pujas, though it is quite a difficult thing to have Shiva’s puja in such close proximity. Today I have told them how we have got four channels in our heart where Shiva resides,and how we have to introspect ourselves and control our attention, because in Sahaja Yoga there is all freedom to be the way you are, nothing must be sacrificed or to be given up as they were told before, to go to the Himalayas,take out all your clothes and shiver there in the cold and all sorts of things. The body, importance of the body has to be reduced. and for that you have to put your attention inward and try to find joy in everything.To put your attention inside is very easy because you are meditative. Supposing you are going by bullock cart. If a man is used to Rolls Royce he will be all the time complaining what is this nonsense, why I have to go by a bullock cart, horrible, this that…But a child Read More …

Public Program: Satya aatma ke prakash men hi jana ja sakta hai Noida (India)

1989-03-12 Public Program, Satya aatma ke prakash men hi jana ja sakta hai Greetings to all seekers of truth! First of all, it is very unfortunate that we arrived so late, and the airplane was delayed for so long, and you all have been sitting here with such eagerness and patience. And from there, a helpless mother was wondering how to reach here. Seeing all of you, it feels like the days of changing the world have indeed arrived. Your eagerness is very evident. And your desire is that we attain the truth. One thing to say about the truth is that the truth is as it is. If we wish to change it, we cannot change it. And if we want to form a notion with our intellect or mind and call it truth, then it cannot be the truth. So, what is the truth? The truth is that we are all souls. We are ‘Atma swaroop’. Everything is so beautifully decorated here, and so many lamps have been lit, that are illuminating. Which is enabling us to see and know each other? But if there is the darkness of ignorance here, if we are lost in that ignorance, then one thing should be known: we can all be enlightened, and a lamp can be lit within us as well. And we can very easily ignite this lamp, light it, and spread its illumination throughout the world. So far, much effort has been made in the name of God. Read More …

Evening Program, Eve Of Shri Hamsa Swamini Puja Grafenaschau (Germany)

Evening Program, Eve Of Shri Hamsa Swamini Puja After this grand manifestation of beautiful notes into such a beautiful woven melody, with all the permutations and combinations that are possible. It’s hard to say anything any more about it. I didn’t know that such a great artist was there, I never heard him before. It’s My luck today that I’ve been able to hear him and such a great artist on table. It’s thanks to you that I could hear all this, they never get a chance to listen to such divine music. It’s so beautiful and the ripples after ripples you could see how it was moving. I’m sorry I had to stop you from clapping, because that would have disturbed the ripples a little bit, I thought. But still it is to be understood that, Indian music comes from the source which we call as OM. It’s a divine source and all made congenial to the tuning of the Spirit. Because of that, you all are feeling that joy within yourself. This joy that is created within yourself, maybe, that many musicians may not feel it. If they haven’t felt their Spirit. It’s for the saints to listen to this music. And for this great artists, I am creating saints here, that they should appreciate this great music of India. Moreover, I don’t know how many of you have visited Kashmir, but the valleys of Kashmir, and the river Ganges flowing in it, as if, such a combination Read More …

Talk and Evening Program: Shehnai Concert by Bismillah Khan, Eve of Shri Krishna Puja Saint-Quentin-en-Yvelines (France)

Talk to Sahaja Yogis the day before Shri Krishna Puja. It’s very nice to see you all here assembled in such happy mood and the nature is also very happy with you.I’ve tried to learn French but I think it’s a very difficult language.When I came first to France they told me, Mother you should never say that you are a happy joyous person. I think I practised to myself — Now the idea was that, in France people believed that the whole world is full of misery, we are all sinners and we should all suffer and we should be all miserable, so everything that wasgrey and very gloomy was regarded as the highest art, I did not know what to do because I enjoy, what am I to do. They said because they’d think that you are ignoramus, you don’t know what is going on in this world, that’s why you are joyous. But I said I know everything, so I started addressing them with “Les Miserable” and today I say the joyous, you are the joyous people here sitting down in France, because you have found out the truth and that is the source of joy. We are here to celebrate the birthday of Sri Krishna tomorrow and is the most suitable thing to celebrate his birthday in France. Because he came on this earth to establish the fact that truth is joy, when he came on this earth, at that time there were people who believed Read More …

Agnya Chakra New Delhi (India)

Agnya Chakra, Public Programme, Delhi (India), 17 March 1984. I bow to all the seekers of truth. I want to wish you happy Holi today. It’s a very joyous day for all of us and I told you about Vishuddhi chakra yesterday where resides Shri Krishna and why He started the festival of Holi. As I told you before this is the knowledge of the roots, while whatever knowledge we have in the colleges, medical college, colleges of psychology and other sciences which deal with human beings on scientific research and scientific data’s, is the knowledge of the tree. So to become the knowledge of the roots we have to become subtler people. With human awareness we cannot dive down into ourselves. For example, you’re all paying attention to Me but if I say that, “Take your attention inside” you cannot take it. You’ll say, “How to do it?” It doesn’t go inside. Our attention is spread outside. That is how we are made specially that we should put our attention outside and understand the value of our freedom. As human beings we are free to choose right and wrong. We have through traditions developed lot of correct ideas about right and wrong but there have been lots of saints and seers who have given us a complete idea about what is right and what is wrong. Despite that we find it difficult to be righteous, to be virtuous, to be what that we believe in. We see something, we Read More …
