2 June 2015 Pournami Pooja talk

Hari Om.
A great man once said, ‘don’t do unto others what you won’t do unto yourself’. This is called a boomerang effect. What you do to others comes back to you through your children, through your spouses, through many things. It comes back to you. Many people cannot stand to see other people progressing in life so they do many unnatural things, nothing spiritual, so that those people cannot be successful. It comes back to bite you. Always remember that. It will come back to bite you.

Times are difficult right now, money is tight and a few people will be progressing. You should just be happy for those people. Patanjali says in the Yoga Sutra, ‘Do not want what somebody else has’. Don’t think that you should have it and not them. It is because of your karmic consequences from the past that you are in this difficulty. Instead of going around and looking at others who are successful and thinking bad things about them, just think about God and you will become successful. Nobody here is successful by himself or herself. They are all successful because that’s what God desired. If God doesn’t desire it for you then you won’t get it.

It is by your karma that you are walking in this life, no other reason. And it is by your karma that you are building for your next life in this life. And you need to make sure that you work out your past karmas in this lifetime without accumulating new karmas for your next lifetime. You must be thinking that this is very difficult to do. It is not, really. Do good and be good. That’s all there is to it. When you do good then you should be good. But don’t do good and be ego. It won’t work for you. If you did some good deed it should be between you and the individual or organization you did it for. You shouldn’t go around telling everyone. That is asking for the fruits of your actions and you won’t get anything out of it other than just boosting your ego. When your ego comes down it comes down dangerously fast.  What’s the point in talking about good things? You don’t have to be aware of good things. You have to be aware of bad things. Good things will come and go but bad things will leave a big dent in your life.

The next 6 months will be a difficult period. If you read astrology you’ll see that there’s a great planetary transition happening at the moment that will affect every one of us. And the only way to get out of this and to keep your head above water is to pray. Only prayer can save you, nothing else. Believe me, the casino will not save you. It will only take away what you have. It doesn’t give you anything. Many of you think that if you go to the casino your finances will come right. They won’t. If you work it out, you end up putting in more than what you get out. So don’t think you can go in the evening to the casino, come out in the morning and miss a whole night of your life just pressing buttons. Enjoy life. Buy some buttons and press them at home. We waste our energy. And money, that is so difficult to accumulate right now, we’re just wasting at the casino. I’m not asking you not to go, or telling you it is wrong. I’m just saying you’re not going to get anything out of it. It is your choice, your money. But there will be at time in your life when you’ll sit back and think about what I’ve told you about the casino and realize what a fool you were. Some people’s second home is the casino. They literally live there. If you can’t find them just go to Sun City or Sibaya – you’ll see them there looking like they own the premises because they have a premium card. And when they talk about casino they’ll show you their card and what membership status they have. Rather pull out a card that will show you what status you have in the astral plane, and then I’ll be happy. In the time wasted at the casino we should rather chant some mantras. If God so desires for you to have R10 million from the casino then you’ll have it.

There’s something else I need to tell you. Many of you have lost money at casinos – a lot of money. And when you lose the money what do you think? That someone else is going to get your money. That money is cursed. If I went to the casino and lost R100 I would leave there depressed and so the money is cursed. You go there to gain money not to lose money and when you don’t gain it you’re miserable. Casinos are not places to go and waste your money and your beautiful time. Spend your nights in the luxury of your own home and lovely bed. I know, I’ve been to the casino and I saw some of you there. You’re happier in the casino than in the ashram. But you didn’t see me. I’ve seen many of you. Hard earned money, you’ve worked all your life for, you go and put in the casino during this difficult time. Think about it. You might be thinking, ‘This guru, it’s not his money so what’s he worried about?’ I’m not worried that it’s not my money. You didn’t ask your geography teacher why he’s teaching you geography. We are going to have more very difficult times and I’m asking you to keep your money for a rainy day. You need to save your money. Many of you are so lavish, and I know somebody buys face cream for R3000, but from the time I’ve known this person until now their skin is still the same colour, nothing has changed, so I don’t know what the cream is doing. This is how we waste our money. There are some things you need to know. If you’re meant to remain black you will and if you’re meant to remain fair you will. The colour of your skin does not make you who you are. I’ve seen some people who are dark and are so beautiful, and some people who are fair but you don’t want to look at them. Save your money.

Remember also, the Gayathri Peedam is not a once-a-month or a once-in-a-while place to pray. If you want to experience the energy you need to really come here and pray. You know, I can take you to my kripa and show you on my camera what kind of energy is around the Babaji shrine. You’ll be surprised. If you stand there you disappear, you don’t appear in the camera photo.

Hari Om.
