Pujas were not the thing so much in the early days, that is in the seventies. Every time we used to have a programme, meditation at different places, such as Dadar and Andheri, (Mumbai). There were pujas, but the main stress was not on them. Mother’s speeches and giving realisation were the things.
‘One person must give realisation to at least fifteen people,’ Mother said. From the beginning this was the slogan, not just doing things like shoe beating. ‘You must follow the middle path of the road, don’t be too rightist or too leftist. Always be in the sushumna, not on the pingala or ida.’
