Normally we don’t allow people to come to puja unless and until they are established Sahaja yogis. Because sometimes if they are half-baked, it harms them more in the way that they start doubting and thinking about it. But in the puja you should stop thinking, do not doubt, do not think, then you have the best advantage out of it. As far as I’m concerned, my chakras start working sometimes with a great force. … But if you are not in the receiving mood, then it takes time for me to take out the vibrations in the atmosphere or in another awareness. So it becomes more difficult for me to have a puja, because sometimes I do suffer with overflowing vibrations which you cannot suck in.
…..humble down yourselves in your hearts. Only through your hearts you can receive the blessings of this puja. It is a very higher state when you can do that, but it is alright with Sahaja yoga, they are aware, all the deities, that you are still children, you can make mistakes and you are seekers and you are especially blessed by me. It is not difficult in India because the one who raises the kundalini like this of masses of people definitely establishes me in their hearts, that I’m the primordial Mother. Because it is written in so many books so they don’t have this problem. While here people have not heard about holy ghost and it’s a secret for them and they just can’t understand. It is impossible to explain to them.
If someone says I’m God, and all that, then they are enamored. Openly if somebody declares I’m God. But that should not be in Sahaja Yoga*, we should have an inner circle. Only these people should start growing, then others should follow. It should not be exposed to everyone, it won’t help much and to me also it doesn’t give pleasure because the vibrations are not sucked in and I have to carry the load upon myself for quite some time till I deliver it to the atmosphere. So it’s a very different system we have. We seldom allow people to join us in the puja, only people about whom we are convinced that they are alright we allow them………You are seekers of the science of God. So the best thing is to get this into yourselves, open up yourselves, receive the blessings by which you grow. It’s like sunshine to the plants.
May God bless you.
