Easter Puja 2008 (Nagpur)

00:30 Baith Jaiye (Sit Down)

01:40 ...All of you to be there... [???] I dont know, how you've managed to come.

[Applause, Laughter]

01:58 Otherwise its a very important day today, for all of us, because you know how Christ died. He was crucified. He was put on the cross and .... he said about you people. He asked for forgiveness from God.

02.40 What we have to learn from his life is the way he knew how to forgive all of us... We also have to forgive people. ... they say [?] it is very difficult for people to forgive and if they are angry, they are angry. They cannot forgive. Then you are no more Sahaja Yogis. Sahaja Yogis [?] must forgive. Very important. Because that is the power you've got from Christ to forgive. Human beings make mistakes. That is a part of their lives. But at the same time as Sahaja Yogis you have to ????, that you have to forgive. That is much more important than getting angry. So to forgive people for doing something wrong according to you or according to God, you have to forgive. And you will be surprised that forgiveness is such a ??? great ??? quality... that to forgive people you become innately? pure. Because the dirt of the anger which is .... thrown out. So to forgive is the biggest blessing you can have. Even Christ said 'forgive them because they know not what they are doing'. So if Christ had to say: 'so what about you?'

We are ordinary human beings. And if we have done great... people can get angry and upset with you. But the best thing for you is to forgive. Forgive for doing something
that should not have been done. So the biggest quality of Christ, that he knew how to forgive. And if he forgave people who... still he forgave them, because he loved them. And that is what you should also: forgive.

Today is a special day for him. Special day for forgiveness and that is why I said, whatever you have....

6.30 Forgiveness comes by people who are... who are good hearted... We have a right to forgive, and we have a heart to forgive. If we dont have, we are not Sahaja Yogis. We must learn to forgive... and forgive without any remark[?] behind it. Today is a very special day, because that is what Christ did. BEcause one of the most powerful day....

He could do anything. He could punish them, all of them for misbehaveing. But what is did, he just tried to forgive and he also asked God for forgiveness. So whatever may be your power, whatever you might have achieved in your life, whatever position you must be occupying, but you must learn/try the way to forgive, otherwise you are no where [in life/near Christ]. You must try to forgive, thats a very great quality, if you can forgive... all the time forgive. And that why today... you all... I wanted to meet you all and tell you that today is a day to forgive. That doesnt mean you sit down and take how many people you should forgive. That would be absurd. But take that off your mind. And you think you are... then just think that you dont know how many powers you have and you cant even forgive when you've got all these powers, when the greatest power you have is forgiving. And today is the day for forgiving, forgiving people whom you think they have done wrong or they are un-... please try to remember how big your.... just forgive them. Then you've forgiven. If you forgive them from the heart then you've punished them. You've given them back whatever they ... deserve .... So this should not... a difficult thing to forgive, but people think its very difficult to forgive, because they ... have very good understanding them... and then they think how can they forgive. I dont know what ... can do. Anything can't affect you, after all you are all realized souls, you have got your second birth.

And you are special people. So you should have special quality, and they special quality is to forgive... to forgive. Not to go on remembering on what you should be angry and you should be upset, but just remember what things you have to forgive... just forgive, for what is going on. Practical thing... most practical. Supposing somebody slaps me, allright. If somebody slaps me, what should I do? I should slap him back? No. Then.... Then I should think they must be stupid fool to do like that. On the contrary if you can just forgive, just forgive that person who has done something wrong, for you, it is important that you must forgive because it has no effect... once you forgive it will have no effect on you, your goodness, your righteousness. But I think human beings find it difficult to forgive, normally. Normally. But you are all realized souls. You are not only human beings. That's why I am requesting you: you have the power to forgive, to forgive everyone who hurt you, who tortures you, who troubles you. How for you can go just... and you'd be amazed he will change, he will change and you will also enjoy yourself. Its a difficult thing for people to understand, but just try. Just try what I am saying. If somebody does any harm to you, just forgive that person and see the reaction. Reacion in that person and yourself: what happens.

But if you want to carry the burden of anger or stupidity, whatever it is, then you are unnecessarily loaded with useless things. We should not waste our energy on deciding whats wrong, what it is.. and what it is you should do. That we should not. Just be Nir-mala... and you just forgive... say that "I forgive". Today Christ, such a powerful person, such a powerful God... and when he was crucified how He asked for forgiveness... why did he do it? Because that has power, to forgive... its very powerful. You dont lose your power, on the contrary you go higher in your power, you go higher in your personality. Just forgive, as simple as that, to say "I forgive". Just like that. Thats how I live, because people are there always... and they do whatever they like. But I dont get angry on their point and not get upset on their point... just say "I forgive" - thats all - and you'll be amazed...

So this is a very big quality for which today is a special day. On the cross Christ said that "O God forgive them for they dont know what they are doing". On the cross, where.... ... and what we have to learn, is to forgive. For our sake, not for others. This helps us. If we forgive, it will help us... within our(selves). This is the message for today and permanently. PERMANENTLY.

Always, if you are angry with anyone, just say 'I forgive'. If you find somebody hurting you or troubling you or torturing you - how will you will work it.... just forgive, just forgive. Today thats why is a very important day for us. And I am so very happy that [?] are here and I can speak to you. Thank You.
