Love Is

Fort near Ganapatapule, India

Fort near Ganapatipule, India

Love will wash away all the darkness on the Chakras and Nadis and wipe the tears from all eyes
Love is the Salvation for it emits from the heart, the home of Shri Shiva and Shri Parvati
Love is the vehicle on which Sat Yuga arrives and it is the foundation of Sat Yuga
Love can and will resolve all adharmic behaviour and destructive tendencies
Love which permeates the entire Universe cannot be extinguished
Love wins because Love is God and God is Love
Love is Shri Mataji Nirmala Devi

Navaratri

Shri Durga, the Devi

Shri Durga, the Devi

In Sahaja Yoga, Navaratri is the most important puja [celebration]. Though we can say in modern Sahaja Yoga, Sahasrara Day is, because that’s how you started getting your Realisation. But if you go to the whole historical events of evolution you’ll find Navaratri is the one which has brought you to Sahasrara. Without the help of the Devi [Goddess] at different stages of your ascent, you could not have been in a position to receive your Realisation. So all the steps that you took in the past are today worshipped and are used for thanking the Devi for what She did to bring you down. So it’s like a thanksgiving. Without Her work nothing could have happened.

So when we read about the Devi, about Her incarnations, how She came on this earth to save Her bhaktas [devotees], people who are trying to ascend, to cross this Bhavasagara [Void], how She worked hard, how She fought the devils, how She fought, She killed the demons single-handed, She took upon Herself the responsibility of making the people cross the Bhavasagara. Guru gave you the strength, taught dharma [right conduct], but She’s the one who brought you out. Even those who were dharmic could not do it because of the demonic pressure. She’s the one who fought single-handed with Her powers of destruction. In Her love for you She fought. She brought you to this level. And then She took a milder form of incarnation. Even during the time of all the gurus She took the form of, as you know, Janaki, was the daughter of Janaka. Then Fatima was the daughter of Mohammed Sahib and Nanaki was the sister of Nanaka. In those forms, these Powers sustained and nourished the Guru Tattwa and later on or sometimes simultaneously they incarnated in milder forms to help human beings to rise.

So today is the day of thanksgiving. As Guru Puja is a day of thanksgiving to your Guru, the One who has counselled you, the One who has told you about the truth, the One who has taught you the truth and has given you Realisation. And the Devi Puja is a thanksgiving where single-handed, just like a very loving mother, under Her sari She’s protected you, fought for you, fought with every enemy that is around, every sort of problems that existed and ultimately brought into Sahasrara level and then gave you Realisation. It’s a real thanksgiving to the Mother. So we can say Navaratri’s like a Mother’s Day where you give thanksgiving to Her, which was just relentless, continuous working for Her children.

Shri Ganesha

Shri Ganesha

Shri Ganesha

But now that you are realised, you can understand that by the power of Shri Ganesha’s name you can get your Realisation. By taking His name alone, any disease or any pain will disappear. He is eternal. He is always present within us. When you get your Realisation, you can feel Him. And if you are not realised, you cannot understand Him. That is why people get misled and do wrong things.

 But with Shri Ganesha’s blessings you can do so many things and neither will you feel greedy, nor will you have any problems because He does all the work for you. He takes care of you. Though He is a little boy, He looks after you. Shri Ganesha is a very great power by which so much work is getting done. For me, He is the purest and my own.

Once in a Millennium

Religious celebrations on Shri Mataji's 85th BirthdayOn 21 March 2008, Sahaja yogis celebrated Shri Mataji’s 85th Birthday all over the world.
 
And to make it completely sahaj and collective, this was a Super Special day, celebrated by the vast majority of the Planet’s population, simply because the day was an amazing combination of celebrations by many different groups and religions. Statistically, the combination of these events was a once-in-a-millennium event.

An article in Time (19 March 2008) outlined the various celebrations to be held around the world on Friday 21 March 2008. These were:

Good Friday
Narouz, the Persian New Year
Purim, a Jewish festival
Eid Milad an Nabi, the Prophet Mohammed’s birthday
Small Holi, a Hindu festival
Magha Puja, a celebration of Buddha’s first group of followers.

Ed Reingold and Nachum Dershowitz, co-authors of Calendrical Calculations, calculated, for the years 1600 to 2400 AD, how often Good Friday, Purim, Narouz and Eid would occur in the same week. The answer was nine times in 800 years. When they calculated how often these four events would fall within a two-day period, the answer was once – 20-21 March 2008.
 
Now, let’s enjoy another amazing “coincidence”. Let’s see what else happened on that day, 21 March 2008.
 
Exactly at the same time as Sahaja Yogis were celebrating, all over the world, the 85th Birthday of Shri Mataji in the geographical centre of India at the Spring Equinox (as Shri Mataji was born at 12.00 am in the centre of India for cosmic balance to take place), the Otomi Toltec Teotihuacan Tradition arranged big drumming events in Mexico and around the world.
 
They were using 8000 Sacred Drums to create Mähki ‘Ñithi (Powerful Sacred Medicine) and Ts’edi Pa (Intensified Healing Energy) to heal Mother Earth. The prophecy of the ancestors of the Otomí Native Nation, in other words, the Olmecas-Toltecas-Teotihuacanos, the Sacred Civilization of Silence, Sound, Time, Space and Corn (Ñätho-Ñähñu-‘Ñuhmu-‘Ñuhu), was for an awakening of Indigenous peoples and of all humankind.
 
When 8000 sacred drums play together, an intense healing of Mother Earth will commence.
(500-year-old Otomi prophecy)

This prophecy was written on a rock in a sacred cave in Mexico more than 500 years ago. Originally, only the high priests had access to the prophecy. However, in 1995 the current high priest felt it was the right time, and so he alerted the Otomi Elders who began making preparations for the drumming ceremony.

While the main drumming ceremony took place at the Otomi Ceremonial Centre, Temoaya, in the State of Mexico, other groups met at ceremonial centres and sacred places throughout the world.

Now we can see what an auspicious day was Shri Mataji’s 85th Birthday, with so many spiritual events occurring on the same day.

Shri Mataji, Easter 1988Christ’s message of love and forgiveness is the same even today, preached by all – all the saints, all the incarnations, all the prophets. They all have said about love and forgiveness. If it was challenged or people felt that this won’t work out, they were asked to have faith in what was said.
Shri Mataji, 1996

If you love a person, you do forgive. You don’t feel bad. Not to forgive is dificult, but to forgive is the best. At least when you forgive, there is no headache for you.

So this love, which is joy … when this love melts and flows like a river and gives nourishment to all the surrounding trees on the shores, that is the time. It is the completion of the individuality or a personality of that love. And that’s the time it feels fulfilled. It’s not just that you have a light in the corner, but it has to flow, it has to move, it has to flourish. Love is not something dead like a stone. When it melts, it encompasses everything and everything becomes very beautiful with that.

So you have to first understand that life is for giving joy to others because you are now saints and your light has to give joy.
Shri Mataji, 1991
