Guru Puja, “How to Become a Guru”, Cabella Ligure, 20 July 2008
Today is a very great day for all the sahaja yogis. Because Sahasrara opened in you, you could feel the existence of God. By saying there is God that was not sufficient and to say that there is no God also was wrong, very wrong and people have suffered who have said like them. Only after getting realisation you know that there is God and there are vibrations. […]

Easter Puja, “You must forgive”, Hotel Pride, Nagpur (India), March 23th, 2008
I never expected all of you to be here present for the puja. I don’t know how you have managed to come (laughter and applause). Otherwise, it’s a very important day today for all of us because you know how Christ died. He was crucified. He was put on a cross and then He died.
Wonderful the way he said about you people. He asked for forgiveness from God. […]
Talk held in occasion of Shri Ganesha’s Jayanti. Pratishthan (India), 10 February 2008.
Today is a very important day for all of us Sahaja Yogis, because today Shri Ganesha was born. Shri Ganesha is whom we worship and because of whom we got our realization. However much you may remember Him, until you know His special qualities, you cannot attain Him. His special quality is that He is the embodiment of purity (shuddha swaroop) and complete Master of the Universe. […]
Makar Sankranti. Pratishtan (India), 2008.
Today is Sankranti. Sankranti means that today something new is going to happen. Kundalini has awakened within you, and you have become a new person compared with what you were before. But on the day of Sankranti, you should know that you have to please the Goddess who is sitting within you. What should you do to make Her happy? You distribute sesame seeds and jaggery. That is for love. To increase the love between each other, […]
Talk of the Evening Eve of Diwali. Noida (India), 10 November 2007.
(Translation from Hindi)
I wish you all a very happy Diwali.
You have seen these different types of dances; understand one thing from them, that whoever has written it or said it, they are all saying the same thing. The greatest thing that they said was that the Paramatma is One.
They had incarnated in different forms, avatars, but the Paramatma is One. […]
Dassehra. Tenth day of Navaratri, Sydney (Australia), 21 October 2007.
Mother looks at yoginis, smiles and says ‘Very happy’.
Please sit comfortably.
Today is the (indistinct) great day , isn’t it (ji) Dassera.
[Yogis organize a microphone for Shri Mataji]
Is it coming?
So today is Dassera, is a very big day in India. They say on this day Ravana was killed. He was the worst enemy of human beings, and he was killed. But whatever it is then, […]
Sashti. Sixth night of Navaratri, Sydney (Australia), 17 October 2007.
Shri Mataji speaks:
This is too small. (speaks in Hindi) You can get a good hall here, very easily. Actually I never knew that there’s a programme otherwise I would have told you. Here also, come along, there is room here. Can you hear me there? (Yogis ‘YES!’) Come forward, here put the piano that side in the corner? Why is she crying? What has she got, […]

I wanted to thank all of you for enjoying this wonderful music from different parts of America, and that shows Sahaja Yoga has a great chance – if it works out this way in America, it will work out everywhere. And it will give the peace and the joy of leading a spiritual life.

It is very nice to see you all again here. I think this is the first Puja that we are having in this place and I hope you are all comfortable and convenient for you to come here.

Shri Mataji: Today is a very important day.
[Mic is changed]
Sahaja Yogis: Hello Shri Mataji
Shri Mataji: Better, is it?

Guru Puja, Cabella Ligure (Italy), 4 July 2004
It is a great pleasure for me, greatest joy, to see so many Sahaja Yogis for the Guru puja. It’s very gratifying to think that there are so many, so many of you, who are disciples. It was never expected that I’ll have so many, so many people following me.
It is being expected that you all will follow my message of love. I do not have to say anything for love. […]
Adi Shakti Puja, Cabella Ligure, 6 June 2004.
Today’s meeting is very special. It’s a very, very special day also, extremely special and very blissful. The reason is it talks and sings and tells about the born order, born power, the original, the Adi, the primordial and this one is responsible for creating this great universe. Why this has started and how it works out is already you know, I need not talk about that.
But today we have to talk about this Power which is hidden in your hearts by which you can do whatever you like to create a new world, […]
Sahastrara puja, “Continue to live a life of Reality”,. Cabella Ligure (Italy), 9 May 2004.
Today is a very important day in our lives as Sahaja Yogis. This is the day when Sahastrara was opened out, which was clearly a very charismatic thing that happened.
I never expected that in my lifetime I’ll be able to work it out, but it has been. And so many of you have got your Sahastrara opened. Without that, you could never have known what is the Truth. […]
Birthday Puja, New Delhi (India), 21 March 2004.

I thank you all for giving Me this welcome. With such great love and respect you all have given this programme, I don’t know how much I have to thank you all, I don’t understand.

I wanted to thank you all for giving Me such a hearty welcome to Me today. I don’t know what words to use to thank you. […]
Mahashivaratri Puja, Pune (India), 15 February 2004
Hindi Talk followed by English Talk
Today we are here to do the Guru’s puja The Guru is praised more than the Deities and the Gods Who is this Guru? In this, which is the most important shakti? The Guru tattwa is the Shiva. The form of the Shiva’s power we should consider as the Guru’s power. Because when we take the powers from the Guru’s shakti, […]
Christmas Puja, Ganapatipule (India), 25 December 2003.
Today is a great day because we are celebrating the birth of Jesus Christ. He was such a great spiritual personality, who had to suffer on the cross. This is what many people don’t understand, that why a man of his calibre, of his standing, of his spirituality, should have to go through so many ordeals in life. It is very easy to understand that he was born in a circumstances which was against him, […]
Diwali Puja. Los Angeles (USA), 9 November 2003.
Today is the great day of Diwali.
That means today is the great day of putting up (?) lights, lights of your heart together to make a greater light for the world to move in a proper direction. It’s a day of great joy, and those who join in this, are spreading also great joy. But the problems are there, as they say, but for us there is no problem because there is no darkness, […]
Navaratri Puja, Birthday of Shri Gauri, Ellenville, New York (USA), 12 October 2003.
Today we are going to celebrate the puja of Gauri. She came on this earth many-a-times, to kill the people who were doing wrong things, who were trying to kill good people. She has done Her level (best) to do that, and today we are celebrating Her birthday.
You all know so much about it, that I need not tell you, but what you have to know is that She came on this earth to save you from all kinds of troubles. […]
Shri Ganesha Puja, Cabella Ligure, 13 September 2003.
(Shri Mataji invites the children to come and sit on the stage)
Now we are facing little children. They are the ones who are incarnations. They are the ones who are going to lead humanity into some great advancement – the humanity has to be looked after. They are tomorrow’s humanity. And we are today’s. And what are we giving to them for them to follow? What is their aim in life? […]
Shri Krishna Puja (Hindi). Pune (India), 9 August 2003.
Now we have to realize that Sahaja Yoga has spread a lot and in all corners of the world people respect Sahaja Yoga, but until and unless Sahaja Yoga is completely manifested within us, the people who respect Sahaja Yoga will not continue to do so. That is why it is essential that we look inside of us. The nature of Shri Krishna is that we look inside of us and see what are the things that put us in trouble. […]
Guru Puja. Cabella Ligure (Italy), 13 July 2003.
Today’s Puja is a very great Puja for me, because I suddenly find that my granddaughter is missing, and I got upset with it very much. Look at me, supposed to be Adi Shakti, and why should I get so upset about my granddaughter missing. It was just a human nature which I realised all of us have.
If we have some responsibility and we are not there we get upset. […]
After the Adi Shakti Puja, Cabella Ligure, 15 June 2003.
After the short Puja it was sung with great joy the bhajan “Gondari”. In the end, Shri Mataji said:
I am very happy all of you are here singing the song of Gondari. Perhaps you do not know the meaning. That is ‘We are the singers of Shri Mataji’. And these are the songs sung by people who are villagers and they are singing this song that ‘We are singing the song of our Mother, […]
Inauguration (from Hindi). Noida, Uttar Pradesh (India), 27 March 2003.
You must allow me today to speak in Hindi Language.
In our country there are many problems. One of the biggest problems is that here men and women are seen from different angles or different points of view. I don’t know how this happened because it is not written so in our Shastras (Holy Books). It is written in the Shastras that “Yatra pujyante nari” (Sanskrit) meaning that where women are worshipped, […]
Birthday Puja, Nirmal Dham, Delhi (India), 21 March 2003.
(Translated from Hindi)
Eternal blessings from Me to all the Sahaja Yogis. You all have gathered here today, in such a large number, to celebrate My birthday. How should I thank you? I just don’t understand. So many people have come from other countries also. And even from our country, so many people have gathered here. Seeing all this, My heart fills with joy.

Talk by Sir C. P. Shrivastava
Madam Mayor, Shri Rahul Bajaj, Shri Debu Chaudhary, honored guests, dear Sahaj Yogis and Sahaj Yoginis
Let me first clarify that we are celebrating only one birthday, and that is birthday of your Mataji. I am, you know statistically about fifteen million people living on this Earth must have been born on twenty-first of March. I’m one of them. Just doesn’t matter whether I’m there or not, […]
Shivaratri Puja, Pune (India), 16 March 2003.
Shri Mataji is silent for about six minutes before speaking.
Today we are going to worship Shri Shiva, Sadashiva. His quality is that He is forgiveness personified. The amount of forgiveness He has, has helped many of us to exist, otherwise this world would have perished, so many would have been finished because you know what is the condition of human beings. They don’t understand what is wrong, what is right. […]
TV Interview (Hindi), Noida (India), 14 March 2003.
The question is what is the main source of human ascent and well being? Shri Krishna has said ‘Yogakshema Vahamayam’ meaning the well being of human being is in achieving Yoga with the God Almighty. But with the technical advancement our new generation is going away from spiritualism.
Yes, it’s correct that with the interest in technology, the interest in spiritualism could go down. But I am seeing that more and more people of technologically advanced countries are being drawn towards spiritualism because there is neither joy nor peace in technology. […]
Inauguration speech for the opening of the new Music Academy (transcr. only English part). Vaitarna (India), 1 January 2003.
I’m sorry I spoke in Hindi language, because to talk about My father in any other language is very difficult, though he was a master of English language and he used to read a lot. He had a big library of his own where I also learned English, because my medium of instruction was Marathi. I’d never studied Hindi or English. […]
New Year’s Eve Puja. Music Academy of Vaitarna, Bombay (India), 31 December 2002.
I am very, very happy to see so many of you coming down here for the program. Actually I bought this land at least twenty-five years back and could not do any thing about it, as there were lots of objections and this and that. But then somehow I planned the whole thing & it all worked out. [I am] Happy to see you all here that with all the difficulties, […]
Christmas Puja, Ganapatipule (India), 25 December 2002.
Merry Christmas to you all.
According to Sahaja Yoga, Christ is settled on your Agnya Chakra. His whole life is depicting the qualities of a person who is a realised soul. What He has suggested in His own life is that you should not have any greed or lust. The way these days people are greedy all over the world is really shocking. Right from the childhood, our children also learn to ask for this or ask for that; […]
Diwali Puja. Lake Piru, Los Angeles, (USA) – 3 November 2002.
I wish you a very, very happy Diwali.
To see all of you here, is itself such a joy for me that you all have taken to Sahaja Yoga in such a beautiful way. It’s your own, Self is your own, Spirit is your own, but to take to Self is difficult. It’s only your desires, I think, which is being fulfilled. And that’s how you have got your self-realisation. […]
Navaratri Puja, Wisdom Through Meditation, Bhakti & Shraddha, Los Angeles (USA), 27 October 2002.
Today, we are going to worship the Goddess. That’s the, first the left side programming is with Her, but later on, at Sahastrara, She’s the Adi Shakti. And, on the left side, whatever She does is already written, as you must have seen, because She’s the memory and She’s the wisdom and, that She protects you, is shown when She uses Her power over the Ganas. […]
Shri Ganesha Puja, Frankfurt (Germany), 27 September 2002.
It’s so nice to come back after such a long time. And whenever I came, you always had gathered in a very big hall. We met, and that’s how the Sahaja Yoga started growing. It’s very important for you people from specially from Germany, Austria. These are the people who were in the war. And now you are in the war with Me. We have to fight, fight the evil. […]
Shri Ganesha puja. Cabella Ligure (Italy), 14 September 2002.
Today we have gathered here to worship Shri Ganesha. Shri Ganesha is the deity of innocence. When we are born as children, it is Shri Ganesha who is acting and we are very innocent, and it is such a powerful thing that, with this innocence, children survive under many circumstances. And we love them, because they are innocent. We enjoy them, because they are innocent.
Once we start growing, […]
Public Program. New York (USA), 22 August 2002.
I bow to all the seekers of truth.
Actually we are all seeking the truth. So many of us, but so far, so many couldn’t find and they are lost. But what is the truth? What is the truth about yourself? The truth is that you are not this body, you are not these emotions but what are you? You are the spirit.
All the great saints and incarnations have said that you are the spirit and what we are trying to find out is our selfhood. […]
Shri Kubera Puja. Canajoharie (USA), 18 August 2002.
Today we are going to worship Shri Krishna as a very great personality and you know why He came on this Earth to establish, this is the new form of, not Virat, not Virata, but a form by which this country became so prosperous. And by His advent only He created a beautiful mentality among the people, how to develop this culture with dharma and you had very great leaders, […]
VOA ITV Interview in New Jersey (USA). 1 August 2002.
Interviewer: … also She was promoted even by Bhrigumuni, the ancient astrologer, in Nadi Granth. And that’s what Mataji talks about all the time: how to get Self Realization, how to get the absolute knowledge and the absolute truth.
Sahaja Yoga, as we know, is the spontaneous union of the individual consciousness with the Divine Power through the awakening of our Kundalini which many times remains dormant in our system.
Guru Purnima Puja, Cabella Ligure (Italy), 24 July 2002.
It’s very interesting the way you found out, today is the real Guru Purnima.The Purnima is the day when the moon is full. I knew this, but for Sahaja Yogis we have to arrange Saturday, Sunday, Monday – Friday, Saturday, Sunday. Whenever it is, wether it is on the date or not, we have to arrange it. So in that case, this time it was a day, […]
Guru Puja. Cabella Ligure (Italy), 21 July 2002.
(A loud thunder-clap followed by applause)
In India they were all waiting for the monsoons and they are so worried because the rain did not come. So, I was giving bandhan to the rain and it came here (applause and Mother laughs). And now also they have told, on the television, that it is going to rain in India. But first in Italy! (laughter)
I was told that in Italy you needed rain very much and the first rain you had, […]
Adi Shakti Puja. Cabella Ligure (Italy), 23 June 2002.
Today it’s a different day altogether for all of you because this is the puja of Adi Shakti, and Adi Shakti is a complete personality. It’s not only the Left Side that you know.
You all know only the Left Side, from Shri Ganesha through the ascent of different, different chakras on the Left Side. I didn’t want to tell you about the Right Side to begin with, […]
Sahastrara Puja. Cabella Ligure (Italy), 5 May 2002.
Today is a very great day I must say, to celebrate Sahastrara, the puja of Sahastrara. It’s a very unique thing that has happened that your Sahastraras were opened out. There were some very few people in this whole world; there were some Sufis, there were some saints, some other people also in China and all. But very few, very few got their Sahastrara opened out. So whatever they said or written was never understood by the people; […]
Public Program. Lütfi Kirdar Congress Palace, Istanbul (Turkey), 23 April 2002.
I bow to all the seekers of Truth. I am very happy to see you all here to know about the Truth.
What ever is told about your subtle being is not yet complete. Because in your awareness you don’t have yet that subtleness. That’s the last step, the jump into your awareness of collectivity.
I must tell you that in this country, that is Turkey, […]
Easter Puja. Istanbul (Turkey), 21 April 2002.
Today we have come here to worship Jesus Christ and His Mother.
It’s such a coincidence that the Mother of Christ came and stayed in Turkey. Isn’t it surprising that She should come here after the crucifixion of Christ and stayed here. I wonder if He also came with Her later on? But they say then He went to Kashmir and She was also there. Quite possible, on their way, […]
Gudi Padwa Puja, Palam Vihar, Gurgaon (India), 13 April 2002.
The festival of Gudi Padwa that we celebrate is also celebrated in other places, even in south(India). Everywhere this festival is celebrated. The ‘Samvat’ year that was started (By King Vikramaditya) and the ‘Samvat’ year started by Shalivahanas, both start on the same day. That day is today. All over the country this day (New Year) is celebrated. All the important dates in the year are fixed on that basis especially the festivals. […]
Doctor’s conference at AIIMS, New Delhi (India). 2 April 2002.
I bow to all the seekers of truth.
Speaking before the doctors I think of My college days, while I was also studying medicine but luckily or unluckily our college stopped completely, in Lahore and I had to give up My studies. Not that I had no faith in this western education of medicine but it was a good chance by connecting this to that and understanding what is missing in the western medical education. […]
Holi Puja, Palam Vihar, Gurgaon, Delhi, India, 29 March 2002.
(translated from hindi)
Holi was started during the time of Shri Krishna. Before Him in the time of Shri Rama …. He was very austere. Because of that the society became very peaceful but people were devoid of all joy. So He thought that there should be a way by which people should be able to laugh freely and be joyful. And like it happens to all such ventures it happened in the case of Holi also that it produced an opposite effect. […]
Puplic Program. New Delhi (India) 24 March 2002.
[NOTE] The transcript DOES NOT MATCH the video.
I pay my respect to the seekers of truth who have gathered here today.
What is basically lacking everywhere is the Love. All persons take it as a mere word or expression. Love basically is the potential power within us. We do experience or feels it when we look at our Mother. What I am trying to say is that it is the Spirit enlightenment with in oneself. […]
