The Qualities of Shri Ganesha – to please his Mother

There are so many qualities for Shri Ganesha, one of them is that he is a child and he is very humble. He is very playful and very interesting. Despite his size, he is very light weight because he can sit on a small little mouse. He doesn't try to show off. His Vahana (Vehicle) is very simple, the smallest creature, a mouse. With this mouse he expresses his own power that he doesn't need any other vehicle. His vehicle is his simplicity; he penetrates and affects the lives of people through very simple sweet methods. In Sahaja Yoga we have to realize how to impress others. In Sahaja Yoga nobody will be impressed if you have a very great car or if you have a wealthy expression of your life. What impresses people is the simple expression of your love through certain gestures, presents, and behaviours. I have seen people who are very sweet, who express themselves in a very innocent, simple, child like manner that goes into the heart of the people and then other Sahaja Yogis describe to me how they express their appreciation of others. It is very sweet, extremely loving and delicate; all that is like how a child plays around, how he amuses you and tries to do things for you, because they are not wise enough. They misinterpret. They want to say Mother this, that. It is not good. They try to show off themselves by saying that we have understood Mother very well. It’s not easy to understand. The only thing is, try and understand yourself. I am like a mirror for you. When you look into the mirror, you cannot understand the mirror, but you can understand yourself. This is a very simple thing, that's what is the quality of Shri Ganesha, that he knows what this Mother will like. He does everything that is good for him because by that he is pleasing his Mother. His complete dedication is to the Mother. He is not bothered with other Dieties. He fought with all of them. He goes to them through the understanding of Mother and respects them through the understanding of the Mother. But some people still cannot do that. They still stick on to a Diety they have been worshipping. Some sort of an ideology they have been having. They are not fully in connection with me. He is in connection with his Mother. To Him She is everything. She is the source of knowledge, joy and truth. He doesn't have to look to anybody else. It looks very egoistical to say these things in modern times. The other quality of Shri Ganesha is that he always tries to please his Mother. He doesn't want to do anything that will make her unhappy. One has to learn the respect of the Mother of Shri Ganesha. In that I find people are little over-smart. If I say something, immediately they will correct me. This smartness is not very helpful. (21.07.1993, Germany)
