The original picture of Jhansi ki Rani Laxmi Bai. This picture was been taken by the German photographer Hoffman 160 years ago.

“Such women are extremely powerful, extremely powerful and they show their valour when it comes to anything like we had Jhansi ki Rani. She was an ordinary housewife. She fought the British, and the British also were surprised at her valour and they said that we had got Jhansi, alright, but the glory goes to the Queen of Jhansi.” – Shri Mataji Nirmala Devi

Khwaja mere Khwaja – lyrics – English Translation

Khwajaji, khwaja
(O saint khwaja)
Khwajaji, khwaja, khwaja ji
(O saint khwaja) ; (O saint khwaja)
Ya gharib nawaz
(The one who cherishes/soothes the poor)
Ya moinuddin, ya khwaja ji
(O Moinuddin Chisti), (O khwaja saint)
Khwaja mere khwaja
(O saint khwaja)
Dil mein sama ja
(Reside in my heart)
Shaho ka shah tu
(You are the king of kings)
Ali ka dulara
(Ali’s beloved)
Khwaja mere khwaja dil mein sama ja
(O saint khwaja); (Reside in my heart)
Beqaso ki taqdeer, tune hai sawari
(The destiny of the ones in despair, you have changed for the better)
Khwaja mere khwaja
(O saint khwaja)
Tere darbar mein khwaja
(At your door, o khwaja)
Door toh hai dekha
(I’ve seen it from afar)
Sar jhuka te hai auliya
(Your confidents/protectors/confessors bow down to you)
Tu hai Hindalwali khwaja
(You are the hindalwali Khwaja)
Rutba hai pyara
(Your status is glorious/great)
Chahne se tujhko khwaja ji mustafa ko paya
(By wishing/worshipping you Khwaja, I have found Muhammad [the chosen one])
Khwaja mere khwaja

Dil mein sama ja
(Reside in my heart)
Shaho ka shah tu

Mere peer ka sadka

Tera daaman hai thama
(That I have come in your refuge)
Khawajaji
Tali har bala humari
(All my problems/crisis have been averted)
Chaya hai khumar tera
(Your trance is all over me)
Jitna bhi rashk kare beshak
(No matter how much one may envy (rashk) be jealous)
Toh kam hai ae mere khwaja
(Its just too less, o khwaja)
Tere kadmo ko mere rehnuma nahi chodna gawara
(Its not acceptable(gawara) , o my guide(rehnuma), to leave your feet(kadmo)now.)
Khwaja mere khwaja
(O saint khwaja)
Dil mein sama ja
(Reside in my heart)
Shaho ka shah tu
(You are the king of kings)
Ali ka dulara
(Ali’s beloved)
Khwaja mere khwaja dil mein sama ja
(O saint khwaja); (Reside in my heart)
Beqaso ki taqdeer, tune hai sawari

MOON April 6, 2008


SHRI MATAJI – Gudi Padwa Talk

“Here (in India) every festival is based on position of the moon.  And that’s why the dates keep changing (every year) and a festival occurs on different dates in different years.  The reason why we give importance to the moon and keep all our dates according to its position is that the moon has more influence on human beings than the sun. Along with the moon, other planets also have influence on us.  That is the reason we observe festivals as per the lunar calendar.”

“Whatever it is, we must think as to why we give so much importance to the moon.  The reason is that we should remain vigilant about the effects that the moon has on us.  The biggest effect that the moon has on us is because our left side is based on it.  Very few people know about it.  This left side of the body which is recognised and accepted so much in our country, has psychological effects on us. 

Effects on the left side are psychological and not intellectual, and we cannot control it.  Whatever psychological problems we have, cannot be controlled.  We cannot control the effect of the moon on us.  That’s why the position of the moon is seen and lunar dates are observed.  For example if it is a no-moon night (Amavasya) or a full moon night (Poornima) then the problem of a person, having epilepsy or any other psychological problem, will aggravate further.  One can immediately see very clearly that such a person has been affected by the full moon or no-moon. 

That’s why we are very much sensitive towards the position of moon and date of lunar month.  In our country detailed calculations are done on this, to know about the exact timings and position of the eclipse.  All this shows that in our country a lot of care is taken about the effects of lunar calendar and so much has been discussed and written about it.”

 

HOW TO SAVE OUR ATTENTION?


SHRI MATAJI ON RAJA JANAKA’S STATE

“You know King Janaka was called ‘Vidheha’. Great sage Narada asked him one day, Revered Sir, how are you called as Vidheha, you live in this world, how can you be a Vidheha?

Raja Janaka said, “this is very simple. I will tell you about it in the evening. Now, please do this little job for me. There is milk in this bowl. You take this bowl & come along with me. Please see that not a single drop of milk is spilled on the Earth. Then only I will tell you why I am called ‘Vidheha’. Narada took the bowl & followed Janaka everywhere. He had to be very careful because the bowl was such that by the slightest movement the milk might have spilled. He got very tired. When they returned in the evening, Narada asked ‘Please tell me now, I am quite fed up with carrying this bowl & following you everywhere at the same time.

Raja Janaka said, “First of all tell me what you have seen?’

Narada, “Nothing except this bowl of milk so that it won’t spill.”

Raja Janaka, “Didn’t you see, there was a big procession in my honour, then there was a court wherein, there was programme of dancing? Didn’t you see anything?

Narada said, “No sir, I have not seen anything”

Raja Janaka, “My child, likewise with Me, I also see nothing. All the time, I just watch my attention. Where is it going? Making sure that it won’t spill away like the milk.”

“This sort of attention one has to develop. ‘CHITTA NIROD’. Nirod means the saving of your attention, so your attention should not be on saving money & worldly things and all that, but attention itself must be saved. As you watch your money, as you watch your road, when you drive, as you watch your child, when it is growing, as you watch the beauty of your wife, or the care of your husband, all put together you watch yourself; your attention.”

 

WHAT IS THE REASON FOR HAVING DREAMS? March 29, 2008

Public Lecture (New Delhi ’83)

Audience member from public lecture: What is the reason for having dreams?
Shri Mataji: The reason for dreams is that when you are sleeping your attention moves either to the supraconscious side or to the subconscious side, your attention starts moving. And then you start seeing things which are connected with your subconscious or your collective subconscious and all this thing. And you may go onto supraconscious side where you see your future and all this thing. But the reason why you get dreams actually is that the unconscious, which is within you, or you can say the Kundalini or your Atma is trying to guide you to the right path. And how does it guide you to the right path? Is through dreams. But these are misunderstood.
How do you understand these dreams because you are so confused? First you go deep into yourself and you touch the unconscious – sushupti stithi. But from there you come out. And then when you are coming out, you touch your subconscious or maybe supraconscious. So whatever anubhuti you had, or whatever experience you had, of the depths of the sushupti gets confused and you don’t know what you dreamt, and you don’t understand and you forget it. But those who are realized souls go to their sushupti and see exactly what they have to know.
Like many people in Bombay when I came, they didn’t know I was coming but they were at the airport because they got the dream. So at this sushupti level, at the deep level you get the communication with God if you know how to go in and come out fully aware. But if you get confused with supraconscious or subconscious areas or if you start, your chitta i (Attention) is not so clear-cut, then there can be a big confusion.
