Q: Shri Mataji, can you give your introduction in short?
Shri Mataji: Introduction is such that, I belong to the family Shalivahanas. Both my father and mother were great disciples of Gandhiji. And my father was a member of the Constituent Assembly and also the parliament. My mother was honours in mathematics. […]
1993-0719 Public Program, Frankfurt, Germany
I bow to all the seekers of truth. We have to know at the very outset that truth is what it is. We cannot change it. We cannot transform it and we cannot conceptualise it at this human awareness. That’s why it is said that you are to be born again. In sanskrit language a realised soul is call as a [bija]? Means a person who is twice born. Even a bird is called as [bija]. […]

[Note: Here the dotted lines are depicting the Sanskrit phrase]
So when the Gods are fighting because you are present they were so emboldened by your presence that they create this big Noise and all this brings terror and astonishment in the heart of their enemies. And you keep all of these gods in the state of excitement and you proceed to battle showing great anger on your face and lift your arms which holds the deadly weapons (all the weapons are deadly weapons in the hand of the goddess to strike the demons)
Shri Mataji: This is only the one side of the goddess… you see …
Sahaja yogi: And this is again one more of the goddesses on the battlefield and you can see it ….. […]

Shri Mataji: Yes.
Yogi: and what is your reaction to it about your feeling to the atmosphere?
Shri Mataji: Great.

Yogi: Have you seen Prague? What was your impression of Prague? […]
1990-0720 Public Program Day 2, Prague
I bow to all the seekers of the Truth.
Yesterday I told you that Truth is what it is. And with human awareness you cannot know it. For that you have to become a subtler being. To know the Truth, you have to become a subtler being. For all these there is a mechanism within you which works it out. It is sahaj means is spontaneous. And also, every human being has a right to get the yoga means the union with this all-pervading power of God. […]
Diwali Puja. Montecatini Terme (Italy), 29 October 1989.
Yesterday was such a nice time we had together, and we really enjoyed Diwali, I think. I’ve never seen such a joyous ocean, absolutely going in a tempest. We have achieved the purpose of Diwali Puja, I think, only yesterday: it’s to feel the joy of God’s love.But “diwali” word is from “deepa wali” means the “rows of lights”. It was celebrated firstly because thousands of years back, […]
Talk to Sahaja Yogis, Austria, Viena, 26-07-1989
Yogi: I don’t know Shri Mataji.
Shri Mataji: The one you have used for your posters I have not seen that before. I don’t know who has done it. Maybe some Austrians. Austrians are very good, enlargement is so good you know. Very beautiful, as if it feels like you are sitting there. Do you have very good cameras or
Yogis: I think the reason is Unclear(heart) Shri Mataji
Shri Mataji: Or a very good heart. […]
1989-07-25 or 26th Public Program Day 2 in Vienna
I bow to all the seekers of truth. I asked them to play this music, because the thoughts were too much [in the minds?] And this music has no words, it doesn’t give you thoughts. And that’s how thoughts can be removed very easily. One thought rises and falls off. Another thought rises and falls off. And we are jumping on the cusp of the thought. Either we are thinking about the past or about the future. […]
Paramchaitanya Puja. Taufkirchen (Germany), 19 July 1989.
[(A noise is made by the loudspeaker.
Babies start crying.)
Shri Mataji: I
think better take the children out for a while. Just it would be better. Hello,
I think better take them out for a while. They didn’t like. Stops. (Babies suddenly stop crying. Laughter. Shri Mataji laughs)]
was asked to Me, “What puja we are going to have today?” and I kept it a
1989-0719 Public Program Talk Germany.
I bow to all the seekers of truth. At the very outset we have to understand that truth is what it is. We cannot organise it. We cannot conceptualise it. It is what it is. So one has to open the mind like a scientist to see for yourself what is the truth. Now whatever I am telling you, you may not believe into. You have to take it as a hypothesis, […]
1989-0527 Public Program Hotel Hilton, Istanbul, Turkey.
This morning I saw the beautiful sea that is surrounding this beautiful place of Istanbul and the nature so beautiful all around. But problem is with human beings only. If you go in the forest you’ll find forest is a very, very clean place. There are tigers. There are other animals but it’s absolutely clean and there is no bad smell or anything anywhere. But if some human being go and live there then you will immediately know. […]
Shri Pallas Athena Puja. Greece, 24 May 1989.
Everything in Sahaja Yoga is very scientific, is all pre-planned I think, and is all significant. For example, today is Wednesday and we have never had any Puja on a Wednesday because I was born on Wednesday.
So, I was thinking if the Puja starts before twelve o’clock, we’ll be able to manage it because I was born at twelve. So, every child has to sleep after twelve o’clock, […]

….Inside. Because it’s very hot and inside, the house is very small. I hope it works out. You see, I didn’t expected so many people would be coming. So, I think, doesn’t matter, we’ll see about it. But, tonight became so cold inside the room. I was really frozen.Sahaja Yogi: For us, Shri Mataji, we sat all day in the sunlight a nd we don’t feel hot or anything. […]
Sahasrara Puja, “Jump into the Ocean of Love”, Sorrento (Italy) 6 May 1989.
Last night was a night of complete darkness, that they call it as amavasya; and just now only the first phase of the moon has started. Today we are here to celebrate the day when the Sahasrara was opened out. Also you have seen in the photograph. It was actually a photograph of my brain, which showed how the Sahasrara was opened out. The light of the brain now could be photographed. […]
Public Program. Lausanne (Switzerland), 27 April 1980.
[un-transcribed Q&A section]
Sorry, I do not know how to speak in French language. But Christine knows both the languages very well and I’m sure, she’ll be able to translate what I say very well. (Laughs…) Very shy, alright…I’m thankful to Grégoire for organising this program, and for the nice introductory lecture he gave. I think I could not follow the whole of it, but quiet [quite] a lot I could understand what he is saying. […]

[Gopa] saying please take me across this ocean of illusion, this [pandurangara] is requesting Shri Krishna – Panduranga is Shri Krishna in Maharashtra is called as [unclear] Also there’s a big story about it but I’ll tell you later on. So he says he is requesting please take me across and this is what I wanted.. But the way he sang it with such devotion, sincerity and honesty.
