SHRI MATAJI EXPLAINS AND TRANSLATES 'JOGAVA':

Saint Eknath was from 'Pratishthana', called as 'Paithan' and he is the one, who has written this "Jogava", means the Yoga and at that time he sang this in a very village language and it sung by so many people all over the Maharastra. You can imagine that this song was written so many years back and now they have converted into a kind of a - for Sahaja Yoga - but it is a very - absolutely precisely described - what they wanted at that time. Now, in the beginning he says - the Goddess of Maharasthra was called as "BAYA". You will be amazed - in my childhood my name was Baya. They use to call me in my family as Baya. So, he is saying that I will ask Mother to give me the Yoga. In the villages it is said "Jogava" - again he says - 'Bayecha Jogava'.

Now ' ANANDI NIRGUNI' the one which is without any gunas has manifested this "Bhawani" on this earth, and She has come to kill this MAhishasura. Also she has come 'Trividh TAPANCHI KARAVAYA JHADANI' to remove our three types of heating pains and now She is going to come for our 'Nirvana', that time he had said, he says that what I will I do when she will come for my 'Nirvana-Dwaitya' - I have got, means I am thinking about myself as separate from God. 'Dwaita' is that you think this world is separate from God, then I will remove this 'Dwaita' and I will put a garland to Her and in my hand I will take the flag of enlightened knowledge (already he is describing it) and without any discrimination about cast or religion or anything I will go to visit Her. Then what I will do, for nine days I will do nine types of Bhakti of this Goddess and then I will give up all other asking or anything and I will ask for a son who is knowledge.

Then I will do (this is a lady singing, he sings like a lady) so he says that this world is full of ego, 'Dambha' is false pride, so I will give up that kind of bad son. It is the bad son and what will I do in the 'PARADI' (basket) is the place in which you carry flowers for the God. In the 'Paradi' I will put complete enlightened knowledge and all the 'ASHA MANISHANCHA' means all the desires and all aspirations. I will finish them, completely break them. 'MANOVIKARA VIKARA KAREEN KURVANDI' all my 'Manovikaras', you see all the mind, which is so much conditioned; (like they say in Hindi that you take out the bad eye). So I will take out as that from my mother earth. 'AMRIT RASACHI BHAREEN ME DHURDI - basket I will be filling with the 'Amrit Rasa' that is the ambrosia.

'AATA SAZANI', (She is telling her friend) O my friend, now I have become completely detached NISANG and my husband who was a doubt, I have given up living with that husband of mine, means the doubt has disappeared from me. Then she says that the 'Kama and Krodha' these two are 'MANG' is the one, scheduled caste people who burn the bodies and I have given them up and what ever left I have made my - I have opened out my tunnel - that is of sushumna - see now.

Such a Yoga I have asked and kept it with me when I got it. I went to the great door and I thanked the God Almighty and I have now come out of this life and death problems.

At that time he wrote all this and today you are getting the results. Just that, so clearly and a lady singing this, we have to take some vows, something about yourself and about others. We have to remember one great thing - that we are Yogis now. That too we are Sahaja Yogis and as Sahaja Yogis, we have to be 'par excellance', in our behaviour, in our temperament, in our dealing with others, tackling any situation or getting solution out of some problems. You have to be of 'par excellance'. Now some of you find that you have very good brain, I mean - intelligence - but you lack in your heart. Some of you have got very large heart but you lack in your brains. So the balance must be brought. But the greatest knowledge - greatest of all the greatest knowledge is to know that GOD IS LOVE. HE IS LOVE and if you cannot even love a Sahaja Yogi, then also must know that there is something very wrong in you, which must go out. The love has to be there and this love is what we call as 'Nirvajya' means there is no interest on you, just the capital, meaning you love each other in such a manner that you just give and don't expect anything. Just give and enjoyment of giving is the highest.

I tell you from my experience. To me the greatest joy is when I can give Realisation, second one is when I can give away things. The third one could be that I can give it to others. So now, as you are not the people, who are sitting at the receiving end, but at the giving end, you must know what you have given to others. On the contrary, even now, if you just give your tempers, you show your greed and all kinds of things that does not behove a Sahaja Yogi, then, you have to know that there is something still left behind. Or elsde if you are so particular about small things like clothes, like food, like conforts then know that there is something is missing, that personality is not full and also remember one sentence always, "ask a question to your self - Have I fulfilled my destiny?".

This is one question you should ask, have I fulfilled my destiny? and that will clarify the situation for you, because now you are a guru of your own, you know, you understand. You know so much about Sahaja Yoga mentally. But when it penetrates into your being and the whole knowledge becomes a part and parcel of your being, then it's a very different thing.

The whole attitude about facing anything is very different for a realised soul. Like me, I would say - if I see a problem, immediately I go into meditation, immediately, and the problem is solved. Because that's my power. In the same way if you see a problem and if you go into meditation, the problem will be solved by me. That means in meditation you surrender to me, then it is my job. But if you start solving it mentally or orally, you will fall into traps. So, the best thing is, any such problem that bothers you, you should just go into meditation, don't have to even pray - just go into meditation with that problem and you will come out victorious.
