Happy Mother Earth Day 2018

Dear Family,

Jai Shri Mataji!

On this United Nations International Mother Earth Day 2018, we thank our Dearest Shri Mataji for supporting and loving us in Her form of the Mother Earth. We also pray to Her to help us to respect Mother Earth more and in so doing, respect ourselves.

Dearest Holy Mother, in Your form of the Mother Earth, please give us the innate wisdom that we naturally respect You in all Your manifestations and as the Mother Earth.

“But we’ll come to the point where Adi Shakti started working on this Mother Earth. The first thing is we must know, that She created a Kundalini in the Mother Earth itself and She created Shri Ganesha out of the Mother Earth, it’s very interesting. So the Mother Earth becomes a very important thing for us. If we do not know how to respect the Mother Earth, we do not know how to respect ourselves.”
From HH Shri Mataji, Shri Adi Shakti Puja, Cabella, 25 May 1997 – See full transcript below.

Prayer to Shri Adi Bhoomi Devi
Upon You Beloved Mother Earth
We stand at this the crossroads of man’s destiny.
Only through Your kind Love of Your children are we here now.
You have graciously sustained us thus far.
You have given us food, water, clothing and shelter.
‘O’ Beloved Mother Earth, with our heads bowed we thank You.
And with our heads bowed we come humbly to You asking further sustenance and
strength for the many long days ahead.

‘O’ Beloved Mother Earth, now that we have grown a little and stand firmer each day, we
pray to You to help clear the way as we begin to march forwards.
We long for the cleansing of all lands, so that upon You, beloved Mother Earth, the
righteous may return to their Divine home.
We hope to be many.

‘O’ Beloved Mother Earth, give us patience as we search for our brothers and sisters.
Give us detachment from all distractions.
Give us perseverance in our task.

‘O’ Beloved Mother Earth, most of all, help us, as Your seas cleanse the shores, to clean
our hearts, so that we may desire only that which is right.

‘O’ Beloved Mother Earth, support us so that we may soon stand upon You in great
numbers and invoke with one mighty voice the Dance of Lord Shiva.
These things we most humbly pray.

Om Sakshat Shri Bhoomi Devi Namoh Namah Bolo Shri Bhoomi Devi, Shri Mataji Shri Nirmala Devi Ki Jai!

Today we are going to do the Puja of Adi Shakti. It’s a difficult subject to talk about Adi Shakti, because it’s not easy to understand that Adi Shakti is the power of Sadashiva. Sadashiva is the God Almighty, She is His breath, as some people call it. Some say She is the desire and some say that She’s the entire power of Sadashiva, and Sadashiva cannot do anything without Her powers. This subject has been described by many people in various books in different ways. But actually we need not go to the background of the creation of Adi Shakti, for that at least you need seven lectures. But we’ll come to the point where Adi Shakti started working on this Mother Earth. The first thing is we must know, that She created a Kundalini in the Mother Earth itself and She created Shri Ganesha out of the Mother Earth, it’s very interesting. So the Mother Earth becomes a very important thing for us. If we do not know how to respect the Mother Earth, we do not know how to respect ourselves. The expression of Adi Shakti within you is the Kundalini, no doubt. That is the reflection of Adi Shakti in you. But the reflection in the Mother Earth is also expressed, as you all know, in different places, different countries, different cities, as the manifestation of chakras and Adi Shakti’s creations. It was very important first to create a very holy Mother Earth for human beings to be born on there.
