Ganesha’s Symbolism & Meditation on Einstein’s Magnanimity of Mind & Heart in Mars – Opening the Fountain of Bliss with Two Promises to Shri Ganesha

“In the cosmos, the star which is called as Mars, is Shri Ganesha.”– Shri Mataji

“A human being is part of a whole,

called by us the ‘Universe,’

a part limited in time and space.

He experiences himself, his thoughts and feelings,

as something separated from the rest –

a kind of optical delusion of his consciousness.

This delusion is a kind of prison for us,

restricting us to our personal desires

and to affection for a few persons nearest us.

Our task must be to free ourselves from this prison

by widening our circles of compassion

to embrace all living creatures

and the whole of nature in its beauty.” Einstein

“Magnanimity of mind is very pleasing and it attracts others. This magnanimity lies within human being and is awakened by Kundalini. But how can those people have this joy of spontaneity who are living in artificial atmosphere ? Although Kundalini has been awakened and She has pierced Brahmarandra (the centre of the crown chakra) yet Heart must be pierced. But some Sahaja Yogis have hearts like stones, absolutely devoid of love; they use sarcastic words while talking to others and want to show that they are great. On many occasions I have seen, people push others or shout at others even in my presence. Particularly, when you shout at the children, I feel pain in my heart. At least Sahaja Yogis should have deep love for each other.
When you know that you are the children of the same (spiritual) Mother, why do you look down upon some people ? Are you perfect ? Are there no faults in you ? We only talk of universal love. If you have no love for each other amongst you, then in which mankind will it be seen ? All I want to tell you is to clean your minds of venomous thoughts that you have for other Sahaja Yogis. If a Sahaja Yogi visits your town, invite him, look after him, as if he is your brother. His happiness will purify your homes. I cannot understand how there can be groups among the Sahaja Yogis,
because every moment your condition is improving or going down. Know that making such groups is disastrous. Look at the good qualities of others and enjoy their love. Don’t worry about their bad qualities. Leave them for me. You will realize in Meditation that this is the only way of Opening the Fountains of Bliss.”
Shri Mataji – the founder of sahaja yoga meditation
“The another oath we have to take today that we’ll respect every Sahaja Yogi from our heart, because they are made in the form of Shri Ganesha.

We’ll not make fun of them, we’ll not laugh at them. Do not put your ego on other people. Don’t think that you understand everything. Don’t think that you know everything. Respect each and every person, not for what he has read or for what he has learnt, but because he is a great soul.

I feel the whole West suffers from one, one simple disease, that is, they do not know how to respect anyone. Whatever doesn’t suit their mind they will never accept, nor will they respect. With their ego they want to judge everyone and condemn everyone. So, get out of it ! And tell yourself: ‘I don’t know anything. I was a stupid fool with my ego.” Humble down yourself in your heart, open your heart, and love each other.

Respect and Love (for each other) are the two things you have to promise to Shri Ganesha!

If you cannot do that, your ascent is going to be very difficult.” Shri Mataji

    Great post Ioana. The root cause of all problems in this world is this lack of love and realization that we are all one.

    The Poet Laureate Rabindranath Tagore whose 150th Birth anniversary is being celebrated now (9th May 2011) wrote a beautiful song on this subject. It’s a prayer to the Divine to shower love and peace in the hearts of people.

    I have tried to translate this beautiful song for those not understanding the Bengali language.

    “God, please let peace rain on the earth. All men and women are waiting with dry arid hearts looking for it. Let there not be any darkness and sorrow.
    Let everyone’s hearts become soft and pure and strong. O God, remove all the obstacles of everybody.
    Let the nectar shower on this heated earth which is full of pain.
    Why is there violence, malice and hatred ?
    Why is there guile and ruse ?
    Why is there so much ego and thirst for respect ?
    Distribute and pour love in the stony hearts and let only your victory resound at the end.”

      The reason for the…

      Because we choose to live in “FEAR”!

      And why is that…?

      We do not realize that we have the Power to consciously CHOOSE…

      “Take responsibility for everything that we say and do”.

    “humble down yourself in your heart, open your heart and love each other”…

    Humbling down into your heart is to respect yourself… to acknowledge your spirit… to connect that throughout.

    And then to extend that beyond the boundaries of the bodily self, so that that respect and love can be shared with all.

    “Widening our circles of compassion”, love, respect, get rid of our ego…we all belong to one spiritual Mother and are therefore all the same, no one is better than anyone, no one is void of any faults or imperfections, no one has the right to pass judgement on anyone else, we should open our hearts and love unconditionally.

    Lots of love always.

    Shri Mataji tells us that we must respect and love each other. “If you cannot do this your ascent is going to be very difficult” Einstein writes that we must widen our circle of compassion. There would be peace in the world if everyone could live by this code. It seems so simple but not so easy to do at times when we are hurt by the world But if I make a promise that it would resonate within me and I would always turn to love and to respect.

    This article is a lovely gift for me on Shri Ganesha’s birthday (jayanti).I shared parts of it with my little ganesha s (daughters 6 yrs of age) especially the part about the promise to
    respect and love each other and we went through the symbolism behind Shri Ganesha’s form. They listened attentively and even asked me to explain better when they didnt understand. Before going to bed we humbly wished a very happy birthday to Shri Ganesha and expressed our gratitude for his qualities of innocence, wisdom, auspiciousness and joy. The girls even got to eat cake 🙂
