"... one has to understand how it is so important in Maharashtra that people worship Ganesha. As you know there are Ashta Vinayakas, eight Ganeshas are there, around this area, and this triangle of Maharashtra, which has got on one side one big mountain. On the other side we have another mountain, which, of course, is not in Maharashtra. And also on top we have another mountain. So like a triangle, which is made like a Mooladhara, means the Kundalini itself. So the Kundalini of the whole world resides in this area. That's why it is called, we should say, as Maharashtra, is the country which is very great, the nation which is very great.
(H.H.Shri Mataji Nirmala Devi, Shri Ganesha Puja, Sheri, near Pune, Maharashtra, India, 15/12/91)
"India is the microscopic form of the whole earth, Mother Earth. So, in the triangle of Maharashtra we have got eight Ganeshas, which are manifesting vibrations, and were recognized by great Saints of Maharashtra. But, as you have seen, as a grace of these great Saints, especially Maharashtra has created human beings who have shraddha as the highest expression of their emotion and mind. Because of that lofty vision in the mind, whenever they see something on this sublime nature, their thoughts go to God. Thanks to the Saints of that State that people have that sensitivity and that kind of a movement".
(H.H.Shri Mataji Nirmala Devi, Shri Ganesha Puja, Riffelberg, Switzerland, 2/9/84)
