Every Day with Shri Mataji

IN PLACE FOR SHRI GANESHA


With all the Ganapati's sitting around Me and you all, the Ganas, sitting in front of Me, I don't know what to say. It is remarkable, very remarkable because most of you come from a culture which has never shown any respect of Shri Ganesha. They never realized how important it was, that without Shri Ganesha's qualities, we cannot achieve anything in our life. The idea of every day, moment-to-moment enjoyment has destroyed it – and also the desire to know the Divine vanishes also in the thin air because you get lost into this moment-to-moment enjoyment until you get destroyed – completely destroyed. But I really don't understand how you have achieved this state where you see the purity is so important to life, that is Ganesha's qualities, His value system and His innocence to be imbibed. I feel very gratified that such a thing has happened now in your lives and you all are so much in place for Shri Ganesha. (10 1995)
