would be pronounced as English ‘maid’ and maid. It is like trying to say the consonants without any vowel sound. The short a sound is like the u in but or the a in local and never hard as in bat. o and e are always long. Hindi and Mar!thi are written in a script called Deva-n!gar% lit. A peculiarity of all Indian scripts is that each consonant is considered to be followed by a short a. would be pronounced ‘g-n-p-ti’ roughly like ‘gunner-putty’. letters in Deva-n!gar% have fixed sounds and one can be fairly sure of the pronunciation from the spelling. unless indicated otherwise. Deva-n!gar% alphabet is systematically arranged (unlike the English jumble) with the vowels first. it is always pronounced long é or eh. Mod. but single vowel sounds while au and ai should be pronounced as double sounds a-u and a-i. but are used in Hindi and Marathi. i or u is short or long. or namast+-stu which is namaste+astu. Unlike English. It is important for correct pronunciation to know whether a. Devanagari has only 14 vowels as opposed to 23 in English. The symbols & and + are used where a final o or e elides into a short a at the beginning of the next word as in sthit&-si which is sthito+asi. Thus med. so the vowel is longer than an ordinary long o or e. unless you come from Yorkshire) and the long $ as in boot. i or u written without a line on top are short. sometimes called N!gar%. Sanskrit. Gan)apati. and three of those are virtually unused. for example. The short u is as in put and not as in fun (which is a short a.‘from the town of the Gods’.‘my-eed’. Long ! and short a are different sounds whereas long i and u are the short sounds lengthened. Short o and e as in ‘log’ and ‘leg’ are not in Sanskrit. The short i is as in bit and the long % as in long as in ‘modem’ and not as in ‘modern’. 1 Vowels. followed by five sets each of five consonants in the order of the parts of the mouth in which they are produced:- . a. keen and pool. Where a word ends in e.. % and $ have been used for long vowels as in cart.Notes on Sanskrit pronunciation These notes also apply to Hindi and Marathi. The symbols !.

In Marathi a final -!va is pronounced –!o. but in ‘hunt’ dentally). an unaspirated palatal #h as in (hiva. cerebrals (%t. Both the vowel r) and the consonant r are retroflex (with the tongue curled back) and should be rolled in the Scottish manner and not with the English tendency to elongate the vowel and drop the r (ie. g is always pronounced as in begin and not as in vegetable (which is j ). Vis)hn)u. -as.e. s is always unvoiced. The third is an aspirated cerebral s)h. 5 A common case ending is an aspiration called visarga which is sometimes written as a final h or h).h. and s)h are pronounced with the tip of the tongue curled back against the roof of the mouth.+d)).gutturals (k+g). with a soft h as in ‘sure’. eg. Kr)is)hn)a or Sanskr)it and sometimes r)u. like hiss and not his. ‘dark’ being pronounced ‘daak’) The composite letter jñ is pronounced palatally and is written gñy (as in gñy!na ‘knowledge’) to facilitate pronunciation.-in English the adjustment is made automatically. The sound is halfway between v and w like ‘vw’ i. gh etc. something like the sound in ‘rich’. The symbol ñ is used for both the guttural and palatal nasal sounds at the back of the mouth. This is often the nominative singular of nouns and adjectives. as in ‘shoot’. (hiva.g. with an aspirated form of every letter (kh. Both v and w are used in transliterating Sanskrit but are in fact the same letter. as in amr)ut. which are more nasalisations than full n sounds. eg. but more accurately written namaha indicating an echo of the final vowel sound with the aspiration. a normal dental s. Gan)e#ha etc. Namdeva= ‘Namdeo’ There are three sibilants in Sanskrit. swami and v when on its own. One suggestion is to pronounce ‘w’ with the upper teeth touching the lower lip. which almost never starts a word (except when meaning ‘six’) and is usually found compounded as in Vis)hn)u. and -ihi to –ir (see Sandhi below). e.tvwam. as in r)itam. Normally w is used when the consonant is compounded. so R!va=‘R!o’. namah). and commonly modifies in composition to –o. the n in ‘hung' being pronounced palatally. d). ie.

Un-aspirated consonants are more often found in French. or in the case of vyakt-!vyakt-!tmika. Sandhi (euphonic combinations) Sanskrit is written as it is spoken. In Hindi and Marathi short a at the end of words and before long syllables is dropped so R!ma becomes R!m. Also ph is an aspirated p (as in ’map-holder’) and not f. in our own language we can recognise ‘globetrotter’ as ‘globe-trotter’ and not ‘globet-rotter’. In either case. Visarga (final aspiration) modifies in composition. so namahª namahª becomes namo namahª. but vyakt!vyakt!tmika would be hard to decypher quickly or correctly. and binduhu uttara becomes bindur-uttara etc. with the endings of words modified to suit the beginnings of the following words. There are long complicated rules as to how this achieved. so the aspirated t has been sometimes written 'h. Thus Sat chit !nanda becomes Sach-chid-!nanda and Jagat (world) softens to Jagan-m!t! and Jagad-amb! (both meaning ‘Mother of the world’) A short or long a at the end of a word will coalesce with a vowel at the beginning of the following word. because most initial consonants are pronounced half aspirated anyway. Note: Differentiating between aspirated and un-aspirated consonants is tricky for westerners. ‘Down the garden’ for example. Sulabh! becomes Sulbh! etc. and ava adhar!t becomes av!dhar!t. the a’s at the end of vyakta and avyakta coalesce with the following vowels. which is pronounced as in boa'hook eg. it may indicate that the letter at the beginning of the following word also belongs to the end of the previous word or that the words are inextricably compounded. In effect we do the same in English without writing it. which is unaspirated while the English key is aspirated. This is not done in Sanskrit. Aspirated consonants have to be pronounced like the Irish -‘dhown the gharden’. Hyphens are used in the text to facilitate pronunciation and ease of reading. so that ‘Do you want to get a cup of coffee?’ if actually written as it is pronounced would be ‘Jawannageddacuppacoffee?’. A'harva. . but an un-aspirated cerebral d) in ‘garden’. For non-Indians a word like Jagad-amb! ‘world-mother’ would tend to be pronounced ‘Jaga-damba’. for example qui. has an aspirated d in ‘down’ and g in ‘garden’. Indrahª twam becomes Indras-twam.There is no th sound as in ‘the’. Where a hyphen is used. so ava uttar!t becomes avottar!t. they should be run together as one word.

Notation. -s. One writer comments ‘The key to reciting Sanskrit is to dwell exaggeratedly on every heavy syllable (and in particular to draw out long vowels to a great length) while passing lightly and rapidly over all light syllables.)

When saying a mantra in the form ‘Om Shri Gane#h!ya namaha’ it is correct to have the dative ending –!ya on the name Gane#ha.Pronunciation. or a short vowel followed by two or more consonants.

So in the morning you remember Lord’s Prayer or Gan$esha’s mantra. Before that. forget it. In meditation try to stop your thoughts. That’s how the flowers get up. still you might feel little chakra blockages here and there. Just forget about it. then you go into meditation. If there’s pure love and purity in your heart that’s the best thing. then the growth of spirituality starts after thoughtless awareness. So first you become thoughtlessly aware. But surrendering is one point that is very difficult in ego-oriented societies. meditate . Now start your surrendering. there’s no meditation. that surrendering should not be rationalised. the Sun comes afterwards. Then you are in thoughtless awareness. Watch My photograph with open eyes and see that you stop your thoughts. Now if a chakra is catching. You should stop your thoughts. Then. Now you meditate. When the thoughts are coming or ‘I have to take tea. automatically you sleep early. But. I surrender this to You’. in the morning time you should just meditate. now what have I to do. One should know that. This is for getting up.sit down. Don’t talk in the morning. for sleeping I need not tell because that you’ll manage yourself. not before. because that’s the Agnya state. what shall I do. If you’re still rationalising and worrying – ‘Why should I say this?’ . I feel a little bit worried. you should say ‘Mother. They’re all awakened by that and if you are sensitive you will feel that by getting up in the morning you will look at least ten years younger. Leave all the worries to your Mother. It works out. who’s this and who’s that?’ All this will be there. sit down. It’s just the same. So first thing is to establish your thoughtless awareness. that to do so is to surrender. it’s such a good thing to get up in the morning and then. That’s how the birds get up. say Lord’s Prayer and then say ‘I forgive’. .Shri Mataji : on meditation In the morning you get up. The simple thing to stop your thoughts is the Lord’s Prayer.everything to your Mother. Really. Instead of doing any of these things you can just say that. Or you even say ‘I forgive’.because at that time the Divine rays come in. So you can start with Gan$esha’s mantra. Even talking about will never work out. On rational plane you cannot grow in Sahaja Yoga. don’t talk. have your bath. take some tea.

that you have some powers. This is one of the glimpses of the tapas that you have to do because I am told. that you are emitting innocence. No amount of labour or troubles are sufficient to become a Sahaja Yogi. Whatever you may try. Then. when it happens to you that you humble down when you see you have achieved something. . some of you had to get into little difficulties and you people suffered a little bit on your way for the pilgrimage. you have to go through the pilgrimage of this castle. And if you know how to get fun out of the so-called discomforts. humbler personality. one cannot become a Sahaja Yogi. then know that you are progressing well. this one should understand that you are special. You will become humble about it. a sweeter personality. And as you start becoming discreet automatically. As soon as you see an ordeal or a calamity falling on the personality and you don’t get worried about it. while you have got it without any effort. then know that you are progressing. then you should believe that you are in the Heart of Your Mother. then you should know you are on the right line.then know that you are progressing. As you become more peaceful and your temper vanishes in the thin air as soon as you see somebody attacking you. that you are discreet and as a result of that you become a more compassionate. But it is fun to be venturesome and to get into places where the devils dare not to go. you should know you are progressing well. so you are something special. then know that you are progressing well. So. When no amount of artificiality can impress you.Are you progressing well ? With a complete surrendered mind. no amount of material well-being in others makes you unhappy.

through Him everything has been created. Your Mother is a good example. or your brain which is full of confusion. you develop your sense of subtle creativity. Now this will tell you that your mind.’ not this. You give me wisdom and discretion. they should also try to say. which does the same mistakes again and again. we have to do certain amount of Tapasyapenance. ‘not this. when we sit for meditation. you should say.. Now you have My Photograph before you and you tell The Photograph. You put the right hand towards the photograph and left hand on the Mother Earth. putting your attention to it with absolute purity.’ Even the superego when it gives you thoughts. not this. saying the Mantra of Shri Ganesha. When you develop that. First we have to say. Now He is the essence of everything that is material. to try to build up. so that I am appreciated by You. . which is actually below the Sacrum bone. which does not understand how to cure the ills of bad feelings.How to clear Mool dh ra Chakra To manifest Shri Ganesha. Make me humble. Those who think too much.’ So you will develop that state where you stand yourself and nothing else. You are Shri Ganesha. which has no discretion. Now many people should try this thing:Sitting in a group together. not this. and the sense of subtle appreciation of creativity. ‘I am going to be worthy of Your appreciation. attention at the Mooladhara Chakra. meditating over your Mooladhara. and my only desire is to please You’ Then sit down in complete preparedness.. The behaviour should be such that there should be no expression of ego in your behaviour. meditating . not this…. ’Mother. which is complicated. Then you develop your discretion of how to behave with others. that. that has been created. not this. that has Bhava. in a beautiful manner so that your ego is controlled. all that can be cured (if you put your right hand towards me and the left hand to the Mother Earth) so in action you do like that.’ So.

So today when we are thinking of Shri Ganesha. social powers. It sees the play. Am I really wise or am I stupid? After getting your selfrealisation when Shri Ganesha is shining in your attention. you should see your reflection clearly and try to correct it. If your attention is alright your priorities will change. If you are wise then not only will you accept but will understand and penetrate into your attention through your Central Nervous System. Shri Mataji Nirmala Devi A . The second stage is that we are not for money. As when you burn your finger you learn not to put your hand to a candle. but it is not involved. What is our benevolence? Is it money? Those who have money don’t seem to be very happy. This will take away your depression to begin with. You can see yourself how far you are from Shri Ganesha. When you are going into the spiritual life try to remember your experiences. With experience you learn. It is an absolutely joyless pursuit.’ How to make Shri Ganesha throw His light in your attention? Mentally you are very alert but you can always cheat yourself. Is it power? You want political. H. you will do it. that I have to work out my benevolence. ‘within us His great power of innocence be enlightened. Is it jobs? It doesn’t mean you are jobless. Now you have started a new spiritual life. To awaken Shri Ganesha you should at least have a minimum wisdom. why can’t I meditate? Am I going to miss out? Why can’t I do something that is good for me? Introspection is the only way. You should see yourself. The wisdom is there within you got transformed. let us desire that. Only this much if you have. As far as money or job is concerned. introspect.S. Just is for us.So the innocence plays. Just enjoys. Then you should think what do I have to do further. It enjoys the play.H. a lot of wisdom is there because these things mean prestige and security in the society.

These 24 tattwas are:-


The faculty of Perception or Intelligence, also called Mahat, which gives rise to:Aham-k!ra- ‘I am’-ness, ego, conception of indivuality.

Devi said: ‘When the twenty-eighth age has arrived during the period of Vaiva-svata Manu, two other great Asuras, Shumbha and Nishumbha will be born. Then born from the womb of Ya#hod!, in the home of cowherd Nanda, and dwelling on the Vindhya mountains, I will destroy them both.

When I shall devour the fierce and great Asuras descended from Viprachitti, My teeth shall become red like the flower of pomegranate. Therefore when the Devas in Heaven and men on the Earth praise Me, they shall always talk of Me as Rakta-dantakam (Red-toothed) And again when rain shall fail for a period of hundred years, propitiated by the munis I shall be born on the drought-ridden earth, but not wombbegotten. Then I shall behold the munis with a hundred eyes and so mankind shall glorify Me as Shat-akshimi (Hundred-eyed) At that time, O Devas, I shall maintain the whole world with life-sustaining vegetables, born out of My own cosmic body, till rains set in. I shall be famed on the earth then as Shakam-bhari (Herb-nourishing) At that very period I shall slay the great Asura named Durgama. I shall have the celebrated name of Durg!-dev%. And again, assuming a terrible form on the mountain Himalaya, I shall destroy the Rakshasas for the protection of the munis. Then all the munis, bowing their bodies reverently, shall praise Me, and thereby I shall have the celebrated name of Bh%m!-devi (Terrifying Goddess).When the demon Aruna shall wreak great havoc in the three worlds, having taken a collective bee-form, consisting of innumerable bees, I shall slay the great Asura for the good of the world. And then people shall laud Me everywhere as Bhr!mar% (Bee-like). Thus whenever trouble arises due to the advent of the D"navas, I shall incarnate and destroy the foes.

OM We bow to the son of Shri Anjana, Defender from all harm, Giving prosperity and good fortune, O, Tawny-eyed One, You searched day and night, Completely devoted to finding Shri Sita, O Worthiest of monkeys, Shining like the sun at noon, On the island of Lanka You spread fear, By setting fire to the whole city. You gave honour to Sugreeva, Praying to Shri Shiva, And equally to Shri R!ma, You served as Shri Rama’s emissary, Declaring Yourself Shri R!ma’s servant. You Son of the Wind God, Yellow-eyed and very powerful, You kept Shri Sita from sorrow, By defeating the ten-faced R!vana. You saved Shri Lakshmana’s life, By bringing the medicinal herbs, Leaping across the ocean. Dedicated and ever-prepared, Brave and glorious Shri Hanuman, Make my mind fragrant, With self-realisation, Intelligent, powerful, Of great beauty and courage, You who are free from fear and anger, O Eternal Day and Master of Speech, May our desires be fulfilled by remembering Great Shri Hanuman.

Victory to Shri R!ma – a prayer to Shri Hanuman.

R mraksha or R ma Kavacha
(Proctection of Shri R"ma) In the beginning one should meditate on Lord R"ma, putting one’s attention on the right heart. The physical description of Lord R"ma is as follows: His hands are very long, reaching His knees; He is holding a bow and arrow in His hands, sitting on a throne and wearing yellow clothes. His eyes are like fresh lotus petals and He is happy as He looks at His wife, Shri S!t" who is sitting on His left. His skin is the colour of a water-filled cloud (dusky blue). His hair is very long and His body is covered with different ornaments.

2) 3)




Lord R"ma’s character is so vast that we could write 1000 million verses describing it, every word of it capable of destroying the greatest sins of human beings. A wise man should learn this praise of Lord R"ma (called R"m-raksha) by heart. The qualities of Lord R"ma are described as follows: His skin has a dusky blue colour and His eyes are like lotuses, big and joygiving. Beside Him is Shri Lakshmana and His wife Shri S!t". He is decorated with a crown of braided hair. He has a sword in one hand and a bow and arrow in the other and on His back spare arrows to kill the Rakshasas. He is beyond birth and death, His powers have no limits and by His powers He has incarnated as Lord R"ma. He is capable of destroying all negative forces and fulfilling all our desires. May Lord R"ma, who is born in the famous line of Raghu-r"ja, protect my head. May Lord R"ma, the Son of King Dasharatha, protect my forehead. May Lord R"ma, Son of Queen Kausalya, protect both my eyes. May Lord R"ma, the favourite disciple of Lord Vishwamitra, protect both my ears. May Lord R"ma, the protector of the Havan of Lord Vishwamitra, protect my nose. May Lord R"ma, who loves His brother Shri Lakshmana, protect my mouth. May Lord R"ma, who holds all knowledge, protect my tongue. May Lord R"ma, who is worshipped by Shri Bh"rata, protect my throat. May Lord R"ma, who possesses all the powerful weapons, protect my shoulders.

May Lord R"ma, who broke the strong bow during the Swayamvara of Shri S!t", protect both my arms. May Shri S!t"’s Husband, Lord R"ma, protect my hands. May Lord R"ma, who won against Shri Para&hu-r"ma, protect my heart. May Lord R"ma, who destroyed the Rakshasa named Khara, protect the centre of my body. May Lord R"ma, who gave refuge to Jambavan, protect my navel. May Lord R"ma, who is the Lord of Sugr!va, protect my waist. May Lord R"ma, who is the Lord of Shri Hanuman, protect my groin. May Lord R"ma, who is the Destroyer of the lineage of the Rakshasas, protect my thighs. May Lord R"ma, who built a bridge over the seas, protect my knees. May Lord R"ma, who destroyed the ten-faced R"vana, protect my calves. May Lord R"ma, who gave R"ja-lakshm! to Bibh!shana, protect my feet. May Lord R"ma, who gives joy to everyone, protect my body. Anyone who learns this R"ma Kavacha, which is full of the Power of Lord R"ma, will live a long life, will be contented and happy, will have sons and will succeed wherever he goes, gifted with humility. Anyone who has the protection of this R"ma Kavacha will be saved from the evil spirits of dead people living on the Earth, in the sky or in Hell. Anyone who remembers the name of Lord R"ma as R"m, R"mchandra or R"mbhadra, never falls prey to sin, will experience all types of well-being and in the end is liberated (i.e. he gets his Self-Realisation). This R"mraksha or R"makavacha is as strong as the iron cage of Lord Indra, hence it is also called Vajrapanjar. The one who recites this R"mraksha triumphs wherever he goes, is blessed and obeyed by all. This R"mraksha was recited by Lord Shiva in the dreams of Sage Budhakaushika, and he wrote it down in the morning of the following day, exactly as told. Lord R"ma is like a beautiful garden of nectar-giving trees. Lord R"ma - who is the Destroyer of all our troubles and worries and who is praised throughout the three Lokas (Earth, Sky and Heaven) - is our God Almighty. Lord R"ma and His Brother Shri Lakshmana, who are the heads of the Raghu dynasty, protect us. Lord R"ma and Shri Lakshmana are described as follows: Young, handsome, well-built, very strong and courageous. Their eyes are like lotuses and They wear a p!t"mbar (yellow dhoti). They eat roots and herbs, They have gained mastery over the organs of Their bodies and



appear spiritually evolved. They are celibate, They protect all the animals and are great warriors with the bow and arrow. They have destroyed the dynasty of the Rakshasas. May Lord R"ma and His Brother Shri Lakshmana who have a bow and arrow ready in Their hands and many arrows on their backs, walk in front of me on my path to protect me. May Lord R"ma, who is always on guard, having a bow and arrow and club, who is always guiding our minds and who, with Shri Lakshmana, is omnipresent in the Universe, protect us. One who takes the names of Lord R"ma in the different forms now given gets many blessings from Lord R"ma. The different names of Lord R"ma are: (hr% R!ma The One who gives joy D!#haratha The Son of King Dasharatha (h$ra The Hero Lakshman-!nuchara The One whose servant is Shri Lakshmana Bala Who is strong K!kutstha The Descendant of Shri Kakutstha Purusha Who is a great man P$rna The Purnabrahma (the entire Universe) Kausalyeya The Son of Kausalya Ragh-$ttama The Highest of the Raghu dynasty. Ved!nta-vedya Who has very great knowledge Yagñye#ha The Lord of havanas Pur!na-purush-ottama The ideal human being. J!nak%-vallabha The Dear One of Shri S!t" (hr%-m!n The Possessor of everything Aprameya-par!krama A warrior without equal.

25) 26)

One who praises Lord R"ma, having dark blue skin, eyes like lotuses, who wears a p!t"mbar (yellow dhoti), is freed from the bondage of sin and death. Lord R"ma, who is the elder brother of Shri Lakshmana and the highest of the Raghu dynasty, the Husband of Shri S!t", who is very handsome, full of compassion and who is replete with good qualities, who loves brahmanas (realised souls), who is very dharmic, who is the King, the lover of Truth, Son of King Dasharatha, whose skin is beautiful and whose personality is peaceful, who gives joy to others, who decorates the Raghu dynasty like kum-kum on the forehead and who is the enemy of R"vana, I bow to you.

I bow to the Husband of Shri S!t" who is known also as Shri R"m, R"mbhadra, R"mchandra, Vedhas, Raghun"th and N"tha. O! Lord R"ma, who is the elder brother of Shri Bh"rata, who is firm in battle, be our protector! I worship the Feet of Lord R"ma in my mind. I praise the Feet of Lord R"ma. I bow at the Feet of Lord R"ma. I surrender at the Feet of Lord R"ma. Lord R"ma is my Mother and my Father. He is my Lord and my Friend. So also the ever-compassionate Lord R"ma is everything to me and I do not even know anyone else at all. I bow to Lord R"ma on whose right side is Shri Lakshmana, and on whose left is King J"naka’s daughter Shri S!t". Lord R"ma, who gives joy to everybody, who fights courageously on the battlefield, whose eyes are like lotuses, who is the Greatest of the Raghu dynasty and who is the compassionate Lord; I surrender to You. Shri Hanumana, who flies in the sky as he wills, who is as swift as the wind, who has mastered and controls his senses and organs, who is the Most Intelligent of all, who is the Chief of the monkeys, who is the Son of the Lord of the Wind and who is the messenger of Lord R"ma; I surrender to You. Sage V"lm!ki, who sits on a tree branch in the form of a cuckoo, chanting ‘R"m R"m’ in a beautiful voice; I bow to you. Lord R"ma, who is the Destroyer of all our troubles, who gives us wealth and who gives joy to the people; I bow to You again and again. When we say ‘R"m R"m’ and worship Lord R"ma, it makes us detached from worldly problems, makes us the witness, helps us to encounter material well-being and frightens away the messengers of Shri Yama (God of death). I worship the Husband of Shri S!t", Lord R"ma, who gains always the Victory. I bow to Lord R"ma who has killed the army of Rakshasas. I consider no-one greater than Lord R"ma and I am His servant. Lord R"ma, let my attention be always on Your Being and may You help me to evolve. Shri Shiva tells Shri P"rvati ‘One who takes the Name of Lord R"ma and worships Him, with such a person I am pleased.’ This Praise of Lord R"ma is equal to the Vishnu-sahasra-n"ma. Thus the R"ma-kavacha written by Sage Budha-kaushika comes to an end and may it be offered at the Feet of Lord R"ma.

O Goddess who completely removes sins, and grants enjoyment and liberation, Eternal, Victorious, Pure, our only Refuge, Giver of everything and exceedingly Auspicious,

Joining the heavenly form (A), connected with the God of Fire (U), with the crescent resounding (M), is the seed of the Divine Power that fulfils all purposes,

In this way the one-syllabled mantra (OM) confers pure intelligence, Meditating thus one becomes filled with Supreme Bliss, and an Ocean of the Highest Knowledge.

*Aim (Speech), hr$m (m!y!), kl$m (Supreme Brahma), cha-(6thconsonant) is the first term, with m- (the Sun), u- (left ear), n- (anuswara) and d* (3rd letter of the 3rd group), combined with " (Lord Vishnu) and y (Shri Vayu) and ai is joined to the root after that. Vichche completes the nine-syllabled mantra –‘aim hr$m kl$m Chamund"yai vichche’, which confers the greatest bliss and gives the devotee union with the Supreme Brahman.

Shri Mataji’s comments on the Devi Atharva Sh rsha. Pune, 17thOct.1988
When you give joy to someone, the source of joy has to be beyond the joy. I am the Giver of Knowledge. Without the light of Atma, without the light of the Spirit, how can you know anything? You see the Source is Unborn; It can take birth because It is primordial, so it is unborn. Primordial is there, it is absolute, but then Absolute can take birth. Why not get Realisation? Without that what’s the use of doing Devi P$ja? Without the knowledge of Atma, if you do any P$ja, what is the use? You won’t get Divine Blessings. Already said thousands of years back. Vaikhari is the powers by which we speak. Any God’s name you take, you ask ‘are you this?’ -you get cool vibrations……-because the Shakti of all those people is the essence of all those. Because I am that Shakti, that’s why you get the vibrations. Ask anybody’s name, even the saints, rishis, Mah!rishis. ‘haanh’(‘yes’ in Hindi) all of that is Me. That is why- that’s the point they are trying to make. B%ja (‘seed’) mantra means, say, the Vaikhari. Vaikhari is the power of speaking. This power of speaking is made into mantras by the people who have power of realisation. Now, so, for them to improve, supposing they want to improve their centre, or they want to improve left or right. They have to say the b%ja mantras. If they say the b%ja mantras, that area gets the b%ja, then the b%ja has to sprout and has to grow. So the first step they have to say the b%ja mantra and then they have to say the different mantras of the different chakras. So one is the b%ja and then is the tree. So if you know the b%ja first of all, you can implant a b%ja into yourself by saying that, and then you start saying all other. So, that’s how you make it grow.

you can say petals they have. who heard all those things and they made this and this is the energy of the Vaikhari. any mantra you want to do. out of which two languages were born. you must know first the b%ja mantra.(Self-realised) ‘Ra’ is the energy. this language was made holy. you have to make it into a mantra. The energy is there and this is the way you should say the instrument. We are Swayam-siddhas. Now the script is there.The word Sanskrit has come out of Kundalin%’s movement. this is water. first it was one language. all was recorded by the great saints and like that every Chakra has got vowels and consonants according to the number of sub-plexuses they have. The one who sustains the energy is R!dh!. but to make it work in a Divine way. you will drink the water and you will see I fit quenches your thirst. The whole Vidy! is exposed from within and without. when She makes a sound. then what. R!dh!. So it goes into your hand. was Latin and the one which was made holy was Sanskrit. This Sanskrit language comes from the saints. Then only are you going to believe that this is water. You have all become Vidyav!n now.and all of them make all the alphabets of Sanskrit language. Then you should go on saying the mantras of all the deities that are there. Not with any teachers or anybody sitting with a stick in the hand. that’s why you accept it. (‘embodiment of knowledge’) Now you try to understand that how this Vidy! (‘knowledge’) has been penetrating into you slowly. She is Mah!lakshm% that is why she sustains the Kundalin%. Supposing you want to raise your Kundalin%. Sanskrit is made holy. you can tally it on your Vibrations. . otherwise you are not going to believe. To make it a mantra. the Vaikhari is there. You don’t accept it because I am saying but it is so. In the same way it is. Whatever I say. Supposing I say. then the b%ja mantra is ‘hreem’ and from ‘hreem’ you should go on to ‘Om Twameva s!ksh!t Shr% Hreem’.

Fourteen thousand years before they have written all this which is the truth. So She’s the one at the time when you are in Sh$nya state.Kundalin% as well as Primordial Mother. who is the Shakti of that is She. and you know all these things.Mah!k!l%. which you know now. You just see and there that is Sh$nya (‘empty’. So even if you may not know. Now meditate you must. So Hreem. attention is there. that is Mah!saraswat%. I’ll say it is done. Chitta Swar$pin%. then Sattva R$pin%. you know. thousands of people have that. So the whole idea you can understand like a computer. I know also if your Kundalin% has passed through. ‘zero’ in Sanskrit and Hindi’). See your ‘I’ is no more in the witness state. )nanda R$pin%%. In the witness state you become ‘zero’. that is already made so well that it records everything that happens and immediately I . (For receiving the knowledge of the Brahma.Mah!lakshm%. even without meditation you got Realisation. That’s it. That is why the Yogis.I don’t know what to do about that.‘Eee’ is the primordial Mother and ‘Ra’ is the energy that is Kundalin%. Bolo Shri B%ja Mantra Sw!min% Shri Nirmal! Dev% ki.because they believe only in connection. like see I’m talking to you. suddenly a person is sitting. I say ‘Haanh’ so the attention is there also. You see the energy is passing through the thing towards the Primordial Being. we always meditate on You) Without that you have got it. I am talking to you. you will understand.right side. So She is the One who knows all your states. Yogis believe in Yoga and so they have to look after the energy and also the Primordial Mother. This is very important because that is how energy should be there. Now when you read this book (Devi Saptashati). that Kundalin% rises immediately.Jay! . So the ‘Hreem’ means that you have the energy passing through the Mah!lakshm% tattwa which is Ra. now they have found out so who knows that. You are in ‘Nirvichara’.

According to one account He is born of Mah!deva. 8 ‘Due to the different Kalpas (ages) the story of the birth of Ganesha is told in different ways. the details of his divine nativity. On the advice of Lord Brahma they set out northwards and the first creature they found was as elephant whose head they took to place on the boy. whose life was restored by Lord Shiva. our own must be created. Shri P"rvat$ taunted him that nothing bad could happen to Her child and insisted that he look at him. 9 Now we narrate the story of the birth of Ganesha in Swetakalpa (present age) when His head was cut off by the merciful Shiva.’I wish to hear the excellent story of Ganesha.

If you have a desire to remain alive go away from here’. . the infuriated P!r*shadas of Shiva replied to Ganesha. • The infuriated Ganas of Shiva at His bidding went there and questioned the son of P!rvat% who stood at the gate. 37 ‘You are a fool. • After conferring with one another. enquire’. Shiva expert in various sports became infuriated and spoke to His son thus. the Ganas of Shiva went back and informed Shiva about His stand. • Considering you too as one of the Ganas. following the worldly conventions. Shiva’s Ganas of great heroism and arrogance laughingly spoke to one another.‘Who is this fellow here? What is he doing? O Ganas. the son of P!rvat%. whom are you forbidding? O wicked knave. The Lord. Otherwise you would have been killed. saying thus. I go in my own house. Where are you going now? Go away!’. He did not leave His post at the door.-‘O foolish fellow. O boy.

• On hearing these words of Ganesha. Get away. following the worldly conventions. Ganesha became furious and took the staff with his hands and struck the Ganas even as they continued to speak harsh words. What are you saying? A jackal sitting on a lion’s seat wishes for happiness. She was delighted and returned to P!rvat%. Erelong you will fall by feeling the same’.• ‘Get away. • ‘Impotent wretches. • ‘O gatekeeper. The trident-armed great lord of fierce temperament spoke to His Ganas who professed to be heroes. What will that wicked knave do? Certainly he wants to die. Or I shall give you a foretaste of my fierce valour. rebuked His Ganas. • ‘Listen. Why should I speak more? He must be driven away’. son of P!rvat% rebuked the heroic Ganas of Shiva and spoke as follows. You go away from here. the Ganas returned to that place and spoke to the doorkeeper. • Thus commanded by Lord Shiva of wonderful sports. • Thus rebuked by Lord Shiva. the Ganas of Shiva went to Shiva who was standing at a distance of a Krosha from Kail!sa and spoke to Him’ • Shiva ridiculed them all. She understood the whole matter. the excellent Ganas went back and spoke to Him. • Why? Are you dastardly eunuchs to stand here helplessly and complain to me about him? Let this new doorkeeper be thrown out’. • Thus taunted by them. boy. • The friend came to the door and saw them for a moment.• On hearing their words. Lord Shiva of wonderful divine sports. You will be the laughing-stock of all’. and told Her friend ‘Go and see’. you profess to be heroes but are never so. you will roar only as long as you do not feel the brunt of our attack. why are you standing here? Why have you been stationed here? Why don’t you care for us? How can you thus remain alive? • We are here the duly appointed doorkeepers. • In the meantime the Goddess heard the noise of this wrangle between the Ganas and the doorkeeper. if not your death is certain’. • ‘Who is this fellow?

Ganesha spoke to them thus. occur. • On hearing the words of the friend. Hence.• ‘I am only one and that too a mere boy. O Ganas. You are all experts in warfare and have fought in many a battle. they got ready and went to Shiva’s palace. he spoke fearlessly to all the Ganas. O gentle lady. my heroic men.’ • The friend came to the door and told Ganesha what P!rvat% had said with affection. strengthened and lifted up. • The Ganas went to Shiva and acquainted Him with that news of wonderful nature. • When this man belonging to us is taunted. • P!rvat% stood there for a moment and then taking up a haughty mood She said. • When Shiva told them thus. • Girding up His loins. it amounts to our being taunted.• ‘O great Goddess. . • How can a woman be obdurate. this is certainly derogatory to Me. This war has to be fought by all means. Let what is destined to occur. Both of us are thus equal. • Shiva replied. especially with her own husband? P!rvat% will certainly derive the fruit of what She has done. • On seeing the Ganas coming. • ‘Whether good or bad let your duty be done’. there is likely to be a rumour:‘Shiva is subservient to His wife’. What is done cannot be altered. You are the Ganas of Shiva. • I am the son of P!rvat%. Let your duty be done now.• ‘What is to happen happens.’ • When thus taunted and rebuked they rushed towards Him with big batons adorning their arms and taking up different kinds of weapons.‘If we are humble. • You shall look to your Lord and I to my Mother. the heroic Ganas of Shiva are taunting and rebuking our own Gana who is standing at the door. Ganeshwara became highly delighted. tying his turban firmly and clapping His calves and thighs. • Hence. you shall not abandon your prestige of high order’.

This strong boy shall be propitiated. O Brahm!. Then Ganesha returned to the doorway and stood there. Shiva became very angry. all the gods including Vishnu and Indra came there. • Nandin came first and caught hold of His leg and pulled at it. 1. . All are Your servants. • On hearing the words of the Lord. the Creator. • You are intrinsically devoid of attributes but by means of Your sports You assume R!jasika. urged by N!rada. the Lord of All. I went near Ganesha accompanied by the sages.‘O Lord be pleased to command us. . • O Brahm!. seeing which I began to run away immediately. grunting and bellowing. then laughingly told me. Some fled to Shiva and intimated to Him the details of the incident. I have come to make peace and I will cause thee no harm’. Bh. O Lord. the Lord of All. • You are the great Brahman. Sustainer and Annihilator of all created things. • At this time. you alone should go there. • Standing in front of Shiva and bowing to Him. to the Ganas led by the six-faced Karttikeya and to goblins. I have not come for fighting. • Before the Ganas had time to pull His legs Ganesha struck a blow at their hands and got His legs free. • Just as deer flee to any direction on seeing a lion. ghosts and spirits. the heroic Ganesha took up the iron club. • On seeing them in that plight and on hearing the news. He issued directives to Indra and the other gods. • On seeing me approaching. the Ganas fled. • The others too were struck down with the iron club. the powerful Ganesha came to me very furiously and plucked my moustache and beard. the Consort of P!rvat%. they said.• Gnashing their teeth. what sport are You indulging in now?’ • Then Shiva. O Lord. the Ganas rushed at Him. you shall bring him under control. Brahm!. • ‘Forgive me.ingin then rushed at Him and caught hold of His other leg. • While I said thus. S!ttvika and T!masika forms. • Then seizing a big iron club and standing at the doorway He smashed the Ganas so that none among them could stand face to face with Him.

the two Shaktis handed over their power to Ganesha and became submerged. 2. stood face to face with Him. with a great army and the gods. Shiva arrived there with desire to fight him to the finish. The gods fled. Without deception he cannot be killed. Everything was agitated. The other assumed the form of lightning. One Shakti assumed a very fierce form and stood there opening her mouth as wide as the cavern of a dark mountain.-‘I shall cause Him delusion. He hit Vishnu too. Ganesha hit all the chief gods with his staff. She wore many arms. The hero had been conferred great strength by the Shaktis.’ Thinking thus and consulting Shiva. As a result of the violent battle even mountains fell down. She was a huge and terrible goddess ready to punish the wicked. On seeing Vishnu in that manner. the great Lord with the trident in His hand. 6. Vishnu said. came to know of the entire incident and was very furious. 2. even Shiva was greatly surprised. The Ganas too did likewise. 2. 4. 7. . She created two Shaktis for the assistance of Her own Gana. He called Vishnu and consulted Him. 25. 1.

Then. the great Lord who grants benediction to his devotees became desirous of fighting with the boy. The weapons hurled by the gods and Ganas were caught in the mouth and hurled back at them. None of the weapons of the gods was seen anywhere around the iron club of Ganesha. He is of T!masika nature and inaccessible. Whatever weapon they had was hurled on Ganesha with force. Vishnu secured His permission and was engaged in the activities of delusion.’ He has to be killed only by deception and not otherwise’. He the three-eyed Lord. thinking within Himself. He stayed in the midst of the army. The earth with all the oceans quaked. Seeing Him terrific. This wonderful feat was performed by them. On hearing this.Lifting up their weapons. Then let him be killed by you O Lord. Ganesha the great hero. remembered the lotus-like feet of his mother and struck Him in his hand with his spear 1. the Mother of the Universe. Chapter 16.

went away to the ten directions. listen. • Ganesha hurled a piece of the iron club at Vishnu which was caught by the bird Garuda and rendered futile. none of them can equal this boy in regard to brilliance.
