Shri Ganesha Puja on occasion of Shri Ganesha’s Birthday: He is the embodiment of purity House in Pratishthan, Pune (India)

[Hindi to English translation] Talk held in occasion of Shri Ganesha Jayanti. Pratishthan (India), 10 February 2008. Today is a very important day for all of us Sahaja Yogis, because Shri Ganesha was born on this day. We worship Shri Ganesha and you got your awakening because of Him. No matter how much you think of Him, until you know His special qualities, you cannot attain Him. His special quality is that He is the embodiment of purity [shuddha swaroop] and complete Master of the Universe. He is the incarnation of the Supreme, of Brahma. By coming into this world, He has created music [sangeet], rhythm [taal], and notes [sur]. By His Grace only, people become one with music [talleen]. A small boy came into the world and did such great work! He has given so many things to everyone, and even today He is active. No matter how much you worship Shri Ganesha, it is not enough. A lot of people say, “We don’t see Shri Ganesha, even after worshipping Him so much. We do not attain Him.” He is omniscient, omnipresent, and in every matter, but you cannot recognize Him unless you are realized. After your realization, you can recognize what Shri Ganesha is. Shri Ganesha is purity, the pure Spirit. He is the pure Spirit. When He is awakened within us, then we have no more problems. Then we achieve success in each and every task; every understanding gives success. And we find joy in everything we Read More …

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

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

Birthday Felicitations, Talk and Debu Chaudhari – Sitar New Delhi (India)

2004-03-20 Birthday Felicitations Program: Talk and Debu Chaudhari – Sitar So many of you have come, and it has given Me the greatest pleasure. I don’t know what is the felicitation you all want to do for, because after all I’m a Mother, and a Mother has to do Her job. There’s no felicitation with it. Just love, love for My children, and that is how i’ve worked and it has worked out. You can see for yourself how you have learnt to love each other. I wish all over the world people develop that love, that universal love for each other. All the our problems will be finished, no wars, no ill feeling, nothing, only there will be a beautiful wave of love among ourselves. All these things can happen, and we can reside in a very calm and collective way all the time. What is happening today is not of my liking, because to Me they are all one, and what is the need to have fights and to have differences? If they could just meditate, they will know that they are all one, there’s no difference at all. My only wish is that all of you should get your realization and that you meditate.May God bless you.Thank you!

Mahashivaratri Puja: Guru Pad Pune (India)

Mahashivaratri Puja, Pune (India), 15 February 2004  [English to Hindi Translation] Today we are here to do the Guru’s puja The Guru is praised more than the Deities and the Gods Who is this Guru? In this, which is the most important shakti? The Guru tattwa is the Shiva. The form of the Shiva’s power we should consider as the Guru’s power. Because when we take the powers from the Guru’s shakti, and when the shaktis come within us then we ourselves become the Guru And with this, we are blessed for the whole life (Kalyan). The one who gets these powers, it seems he has got all the blessings (kalyan). “Kalyan” is a word which is very hard to explain in a few words. “Kalyan” means to get blessed from all the sides. the obtain joy from all the sides. When someone says that in the blessings you have got the Kalyan, what does it mean? What is Kalyan? Kalyan means Atma Sakshatkar, the Self-Realisation. Without the Self-Realisation, you cannot have the Kalyan. Nobody can understand without having it. All these things are in the Kalyan. Because of this a person gets all the joy, and he becomes radiant. To have this Kalyan, whatever you have to do you have done it all, whatever efforts you have to make it has all been made, the faith which you have to take, you have already taken it. But when you are all in the “Kalyanmarg” (Path of Kalyan), when he Read More …

Christmas Puja Ganapatipule (India)

Christmas Puja, Ganapatipule (India), 25 December 2003. English Transcript Today is a great day because we are celebrating the birth of Jesus Christ. He was such a great spiritual personality, who had to suffer on the cross. This is what many people don’t understand, that why a man of his calibre, of his standing, of his spirituality, should have to go through so many ordeals in life. It is very easy to understand that he was born in a circumstances which was against him, which were against divine force. So to overcome that people tried to destroy Jesus Christ. And he did not feel the pain, he didn’t feel the absurdity of those people. On the contrary he went through all that ordeal with such courage and such dignity. So for us, what is there to see is that if you are divine and if you have powers of divinity, then you should have courage, and with that courage you can face all kinds of ordeals. On the whole, whenever you are on this earth there are problems of different types. You may belong to royal families, or maybe a poor person, there are always problems facing you. But Christ has shown by his life that, though he had to suffer so much, he was so patient and courageous. His life has given us an example, what we should be, how we should behave when we are facing problems because of ignorance of people. But today is a happy day Read More …

Shri Ganesha Puja: They Are All Incarnations Campus, Cabella Ligure (Italy)

Shri Ganesha Puja. Cabella (Italy), 13 September 2003 Now we are facing little children. They are the ones who are incarnations. They are the ones who are going to lead humanity into some great advancement. The humanity has to be looked after. They are tomorrow’s humanity. And we are today’s. And what are we giving to them, for them to follow? What is their aim in life? It is very, very difficult to say. But with Sahaja Yoga, they will all go in the proper way. They’ll behave in a proper way. And the whole thing will be a different mass of Sahaja Yogis coming up. But it is the duty of bigger Sahaja Yogis to look after them, to have better moral standards, to have better lives, so that they follow your life and become genuinely good Sahaja Yogis. It’s a very big responsibility – perhaps we don’t recognize it, we don’t understand – but all these are little creatures which are after the image of great souls, and they should be brought up in that way, respected in that manner, and loved with great care. This is to be understood.  The problem with our elderly people is this: that we do not consider them [the children] to be considered, to be bothered about, to be understood about. We think we are too intelligent, too good, and we need not waste our energy with them. This is the trouble of the elderly people. But today when we are sitting Read More …

Inauguration Of Vishwa Nirmal Prem Ashram Noida (India)

Inauguration (from Hindi). Noida, Uttar Pradesh (India), 27 March 2003. You must allow me today to speak in Hindi Language.In our country there are many problems. One of the biggest problems is that here men and women are seen from different angles or different points of view. I don’t know how this happened because it is not written so in our Shastras (Holy Books). It is written in the Shastras that “Yatra pujyante nari” (Sanskrit) meaning that where women are worshipped, “Tatra ramante devata” : there reside the Gods. So I do not know how it is that in our country such a situation has culminated where there is no respect toward women, especially here in U.P.(Uttar Pradesh).I was married in UP and I was surprised to see that in UP housewives do not have any status. There is no difference between them and the domestic servants. How this happened and why is this still happening?? – Because the people are not awakened toward this. Sometimes I feel like crying seeing how they have taken advantage of women. They have thrown them out of home, without any reason ! Just like that, thrown out of house!! And I have had so many experiences in my life which deeply aggrieved me. I did not understand why they are maltreating women? And there are no arrangements to house them! And when they are thrown out of their house there is nobody to take care of them. Poor women!, they were thrown out Read More …

New Year’s Eve Puja P K Salve Kala Pratishthan - Vaitarna Music Academy, Tembha (India)

New Year’s Eve Puja. Music Academy of Vaitarna, Bombay (India), 31 December 2002. I am very, very happy to see so many of you coming down here for the program. Actually I bought this land at least at least twenty-five years back and couldn’t do any thing about it, as they had lots of objections this and that. But then somehow I planned the whole thing & it all worked out. Happy to see you all here that with all those difficulties, ultimately now you find so many Sahaja Yogis attending this program of My Puja. I must remember My brother Baba who has worked very hard for the propagation of Indian music, classical music, all types of art, whatever he could do. It is a very sad thing that today he is not here to see you all. He has done so much work relentlessly without expecting any reward whatsoever. And I wish you could have him as your ideal and that’ll work it out everything, in that way. There is one thing about him I know – he never tried to show off anything. Very intelligent, educated man but he caught hold of all the people of ordinary living and he looked after them & he promoted their skill of music and art. With the same idea, I decided to have this place dedicated to his idea of propagating music & art. And I am happy to see, that, that idea has materialized. But I wish My brother Read More …

Christmas Puja Ganapatipule (India)

Christmas Puja, Ganapatipule (India), 25 December 2002. Merry Christmas to you all.According to Sahaja Yoga, Christ is settled on your Agnya Chakra. His whole life is depicting the qualities of a person who is a realised soul. What He has suggested in His own life is that you should not have any greed or lust. The way these days people are greedy all over the world is really shocking. Right from the childhood, our children also learn to ask for this or ask for that; only complete satisfaction in life can give you that equanimity, that balance by which you do not hanker after things.These days even India has become very much westernised in the sense they are also very much wanting to have this and that. Actually, now in America suddenly, with this happening, people are getting to spirituality. They come to spirituality because they think they have not found any satisfaction anywhere. But we have to see from His life, the great life of Christ. First He was born in a small little hut, as you saw many of them when you come round. Very much satisfied. And He was put in a cradle which was all covered with dry, very dry grass. Can you imagine? And then He sacrificed His life on the cross. Whole thing is a story of a sacrifice. Because He had a power, power of Spirit, that He could sacrifice anything, even sacrifice His own life, so you can understand the greatness of Read More …

Shri Ganesha Puja: You are in the war with Me & Departure Frankfurt (Germany)

Shri Ganesha Puja, Frankfurt (Germany), 27 September 2002. It’s so nice to come back after such a long time. And whenever I came, you always had gathered in a very big hall. We met, and that’s how the Sahaja Yoga started growing. It’s very important for you people from specially from Germany, Austria. These are the people who were in the war. And now you are in the war with Me. We have to fight, fight the evil. You know how the world is. We have to fight them and we have to take them out of ignorance. You are such a support for this because we have to change human beings. They have to become good people very fast. Once they get their Self-realization, the change will start. Now in England and also in Italy, what they are doing is to give realization to people on the street. Giving on the street, thousands of people now have become realized souls. It’s a very big thing because once you get your realization, you become the Spirit and all the goodness should come to you. If there is anything evil, bad in you that will go away. It’s spreading so fast everywhere and should also spread in those countries who are there. There’s no need, no need for you to fight or quarrel because you have got the divine help. You have got all the help all the help from the Divine, and this is what is to be understood: that Read More …

You are a spiritual personality New York Society for Ethical Culture, New York City (United States)

Public Program. New York (USA), 22 August 2002. I bow to all the seekers of truth. Actually, we are all seeking the truth. So many of us, but so far, so many couldn’t find and they are lost. But what is the truth? What is the truth about yourself? The truth is that you are not this body, you are not these emotions but what are you? You are the spirit. All the great saints and incarnations have said that you are the spirit and what we are trying to find out is our selfhood. We are after that research about ourselves. We’ve done lots of mistakes also by misguided people but I must say that there is a built-in arrangement within us, every one of you, which will take you to that selfhood, which will give you that self-realization. It’s very surprising that they have not talked about Kundalini so far. There is a power within all of you which is the Kundalini, which is three and a half-coiled energy in your, I should say, behind your triangular bone, or it is inside it and is waiting for that moment when it can be awakened and it can pass through the different centers piercing through your fontanel bone area. And that’s how you get your self-realization, that you feel cool breeze coming out of your fontanel bone area. It’s an actualization. It is not My lecture or reading or anything. It’s actualization which has to take place. If you don’t get it, doesn’t matter. Read More …
