Now the wisest animal on this Earth is elephant, and elephant was saved in evolution in a very miraculous way – is also another description which I’ll give you later on. So a she-elephant, mother elephant was lying down with her back towards her child – that’s why in India women never sleep with their back towards their children, never. The child has to be in front, pudhe, in front. It should never be put at the back of the mother – never. Mother will get up and go on the other side and change the sides, but she would never put the child at the back. So the head of that little animal was cut, and He brought it and was put for Shri Ganesh. And that’s how Shri Ganesha was created.
But you know, elephant is the conveyance of Mahalakshmi. So the body is from Mahakali, but the head is given by Mahalakshmi, the evolutionary power.
So Tuesday is the day when Ganesha was established, and then the Goddess started working. The first one, the one day when She started is, was the Wednesday. She started working out on Wednesday. Wednesday is the action day, that’s why she started on Wednesday. Today is, under the circumstances it is Saturday; but I’m telling you about the original timings. Because Wednesday is the day of the Swadisthana, that’s the day She started working it out, the whole thing. So first, Tuesday is the first day in Sahaja Yoga*, Wednesday is the second day.
And you’ll be surprised that the stars are also the same, because Tuesday is the day of the Mars which is resided by Shri Ganesh. Wednesday is the day of Mercury, and Mercury is the Swadisthana.
Third day – yes – third day is the day of Jupiter: what you call, we call it guru, is the day of the guru, is the Jupiter, is the teacher. Now, Friday is the day of the Goddess. Now see the chakras also, of the Goddess, Mother of the Earth, Mother of the Universe, Venus. But in Indian Sanskrit language the names of the days are exactly the same, tallying with the stars, so ….
Then Saturday is the day of Shri Krishna – Shani, is Saturn. Then Sunday is the day of Christ, the Sun. Monday is the day of Sadashiva – is of realization, of integration. These are the seven days when God created the whole universe. That’s what I told yesterday, that in this narrow way you cannot understand Christianity. You’ll think it’s all mad, which is not. Only when you read other things, other scriptures, then only you will understand what Christ said.
