Jai Shri Mataji!

Please see the link below to the latest detailed Seminar Program for Shri MahaGanesha Puja!

Yogis who are attending, please keep a copy of the Seminar Program so we all have a general understanding of each day’s proceedings.

(Latest Program is also available on the Seminar Website)

In less than two weeks, we will meet together in Central Australia to invite Shri Mataji, the Mother, the Father and Her Son Shri Ganesha, to join us and allow us to perform Her Puja at the largest Shri Ganesha Swayambu in the world! 

On this Tuesday of Shri Ganesha, let us renew our dedication to our preparations not only to the wonderful Puja contributions everyone is making, to getting our admin completed and packing our bags but most importantly, to preparing our subtle system! 

How wonderful and powerful it will be during our Parambulation (walk around) Uluru to collectively say from memory the Ganesh Atharva Sheersha for instance.  Let’s also pay attention to whatever it is we need to do to clear the obstacles to our spiritual ascent.  

We can also help each other during our last Collective program together this weekend by clearing, deepening and absorbing whatever Shri Mataji asks of us.  

Here below are a few more quotes of Shri Mataji to inspire us!

“…say Atharva Sheersha”

“So we have to now understand what are our maryadas are, how we have to live within our maryadas, and I’m sure if you really work out your Shri Ganesha. For that the best is to meditate. Put yourself on some nice turf, grass. Sit on that. Put your left hand with the light, and right hand on the Mother Earth, and say Atharva Sheersha. If you can remember it by heart, it’s a very good thing. Otherwise, you can keep the book and read it, or say Ganesha’s mantra to begin with. It’s going to help you very much.”

“This will be the fifth puja in Australia, and I thought that this is the land of Ganesha, we should have the Ganesha Puja. Is very important also, very helpful. We all should have Ganesha Puja, it’s very important. And so today there will be Shri Ganesha Puja. Have you got the hundred and eight names of Shri Ganesha? 

Also Australians have to give a very big lead in Shri Ganesha’s area because you are sitting on the soil of Shri Ganesha.

And Australians have all the possibility of reaching a great height in Ganesh principle, because they have the Mother Earth here sitting down. What else do they want?

So today’s Puja is about Shri Ganesha. As of course you know, He has got four petals and you know what He is placed in and what He does and all that, and how He looks after the chastity of His Mother and all that. But the main thing is that how we develop Shri Ganesha within us, how people see us as the incarnations of innocence on this Earth. I know it’s very difficult, but imagine Shri Ganesha sitting on the gate of hell, of excretion, because He’s just like a lotus, above everything else, and He makes everything fragrant. 

In the same way I expect all of you, the Sahaja yogis of Australia, to have that beautiful personality of Shri Ganesha, and that you emit that fragrance of innocence among all the Sahaja yogis, and then among all the world.
May God bless you.
Shri Ganesha Puja. Canberra, Australia, 14 April 1991.

 “Now, My feet here represent Ganesha”

Now, what you are doing by saying these mantras, you are awakening the innocence within you; innocence is represented by Shri Ganesh. As you know, later on He incarnated as Lord Jesus Christ, but the innocence within us must be first of all invoked, because, before creating this universe, first of all innocence was created, because innocence has the greatest protective power, the greatest destructive power and it is the most powerful. So, first we are trying to invoke the innocence. Now, My feet here represent Ganesha, and they are innocent, and so, we are trying to worship those so that, within you, Ganesha should be invoked. Your innocence should be enlightened, all right?”
Shri Ganesha Puja. Zurich (Switzerland), 12 October 1980.
