Shri Mataji


Shri Mataji

Born 21st March 1923 (1982-0130), on a Wednesday at 12 o’clock (1989-0524) in the day time (1997-1230), on the cusp of Pisces and Aries (1982-0130); Who on Sunday December 2nd 1979, declared Herself to be the One who is the Adi Shakti, the Primordial Mother, who has come to save the humanity, who has incarnated on this Earth to give it’s meaning to itself (1979-1202.1); Shri Ganesha worships our Mother (1985-0629)

Who has come in the Mahamaya form so that the seekers will not be frightened (1989-0524); Who has come to complete the work of all the Incarnations that came before (1989-0801); A very ancient personality, who has no need for any Guru – rather the Primordial Guru, Dattatreya resides within Her (1979-0530); Whose nature is not to receive, but to give (1979-1203); Who is like the Mother Earth who sprouts the seeds (1989-0423); Who came to find out a method, by which en-masse Realisation can be given (MME); Who says… ‘I did not discover it… I know it… there is no discovery at all… I know… everything… somehow I know… which you should find out… about me… how I know – it is a discovery for you… but for me it is not… alright (1983-1001)

Who studied in Lahore Medical College… because she wanted to know, in medicine, what people called such and such thing… because she knew all about the body… about everything… about the complete Central Nervous System… but did not know the vocabulary attached to it. So she studied there for two years. When the war broke out… she discontinued her studies… and then she married Mr C P Shrivastava. During all this time… her only full time work was to find out about human beings… what were the problems they had… how they avoided Reality… how they shunned it. Then in 1970, on the 5th May… ‘I was a little hesitant at that time… I thought I should wait… but certain circumstances made me to open the last Centre… and when I opened the last Centre… it started working with others, on an en-masse scale’. But first… she gave Realisation to one lady who came to her house (1983-1001)

Who started Her work in 1970 with 1 lady (1979-0616; 1998-0321), and later worked with 6 people in England for 4 years (1979-0616); Who came to England in 1973-74 (1982-0711; 1985-1128), and who put the maximum effort into this land of England (1982-1101), until Her farewell, when She left England, following the retirement of Mr CP in 1989 (1989-1203); One of whose homes was on the Twyburn Brook, mentioned by William Blake (1983-0128); Who was tortured by the English (in India – Ed), yet spent so much time in England (1986-0305) where She worked the most… ‘because England is the heart, and the heart should not fail’ (1989-1203)

Who sleeps very little, in fact who even when She is sleeping, She is working (1982-1101); Who is not a vegetarian… not at all (1981-1006); Whose every movement and everything is nothing but Vibrations (1980-0609); The Vibrations are more at the Feet; ‘I am a fixed quantity… you must see how far you move towards Me – that depends on you’; ‘Don’t worry about Me… I am not an ordinary Human Being. No-one can harm Me… No-one can kill Me’ (1989-0527); Every word spoken by the Mother is a Mantra, every word chosen for it’s effect (1985-0806); Here, when you got your Realisation, I conceived you in my heart, and gave you Realisation through my Sahastrara – there must be something special about me… and about the way it is done (1981-1006)

I was with Mahatma Gandhi as a child… because he liked me very much… he used to call me Nepali, because I have a ‘Nepali face’… and he used to talk to me as if he’s talking to his grandmother sometimes… he was extremely sweet person to children… strict with himself… and straight with others… with elderly people (1983-1001; 1983-0128)

Who chose Her own earthly father (1980-0517.1); Who had 11 brothers and sisters; Whose mother, who was president of the Congress in Nagpur and went to jail 5 times… who was a very correct woman… would not tolerate any nonsense from her children (1985-0421); Until May 1989, She did not have Pujas, and did not normally travel on Wednesdays (1989-0524); Who can’t wear any nylon… or anything artificial (1997-1004); Whose interest in money is zero, but who has never had a problem (1998-0320); I don’t know about money, I should say… but I am good at mathematics (1997-1004); Who was at one time, chairman of a ‘blind school’ (1998-0320)

We have to be careful, and not say any indecent things to the Mother, nor to use any bad words (1979-0416); Who hates to hear any criticism of anyone from any of us (1980-0927)
