Sahastrara Puja, Watch Yourself Nirmal Temple, Cabella Ligure (Italy)

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, […]

Easter Puja, You Can Spread Sahaja Yoga Only Through Love and Compassion Istanbul (Turkey)

Easter Puja. Istanbul (Turkey),
19 April 1998.

Today, we are celebrating the Resurrection of Christ. That
is the greatest message of Christ life, not the crucifixion.

Anybody
can be crucified and killed, but this dead body of Christ was resurrected from
death. Death itself died and He overcame
it.

It’s a miracle for ordinary human beings, definitely, but not for Christ,
because He was a Divine person, He was Shri Ganesha, He was Omkara Itself. So, […]

Guru Puja, Criteria To Introspect Yourself Nirmal Temple, Cabella Ligure (Italy)

Guru puja. Cabella Ligure (Italy), 28 July 1996.

Today we have gathered here to do Guru puja.  This system started long time back in India, I think even at the time of Patanjali, maybe even earlier, when there were great seekers. And their gurus were sitting in the jungles, where they used to get permission to go there and then they would get their realisation, very few of them, one or two.  So we had many rishis and munis in the olden times in India. […]

Sahastrara Puja, Achieve Complete Freedom Nirmal Temple, Cabella Ligure (Italy)

“Achieve Complete Freedom”, Sahastrara Puja, Cabella Ligure (Italy), 7 May 1995.

Today it’s a great day for us, for all the Sahaj Yogis, that on this day – I would say, we are late by one day, or two days – the Sahastrara was opened out. It was just a miracle, I should say, because I didn’t think that I am at a point where it could be done. So I wanted to wait, but some things happened that made me think that it has to be open: it was in such a situation that I felt that if Idelay it anymore now, […]

Sahastrara Puja, Mahamaya Swarupa Nirmal Temple, Cabella Ligure (Italy)

“Mahamaya Swarupa,” Sahastrara Puja. Cabella Ligure (Italy), May 8 1994.
Today is a unique combination of Mothers’ Day in many countries and Sahastrar Day for Sahaj Yogis.
I think this is the most important day in the history of human evolution because all other events, incarnations and ventures in the spiritual atmosphere have been of no avail. On the contrary, they have gone into a kind of a cocoon which has no door; banging themselves against the walls, […]

Conversation with Sahaja Yogis About Politics Canberra Ashram, Canberra (Australia)

Conversation with yogis about current events and international politics, Canberra ashram (Australia), 12 February 1992.
Yogi: But there is a room here with a bathroom attached!
Shri Mataji: Would be better to be with you all! But in Melbourne I would like to stay in a hotel – would be better – just to show a little resentment at the way they are behaving.
How many came for follow-on last [time], after my programme?
Yogi: Fifty people. […]

Virata Puja, Appreciation Should Be Practiced and Informal talk Lake Road Ashram, Melbourne (Australia)

Virata Puja. Melbourne (Australia), 10 April 1991

Because of distances and also we had no ashram in Melbourne all these days, I found that the collectivity is not yet properly woven here and so I think best thing is, today, we must worship the Viraat.

Viraat is the Primordial Father you can say, or the One who is in our brain, acts for our collectivity. As the Kundalini rises ultimately She ends up by piercing through the fontanel bone area. […]

“Divine Discretion”, Hamsa Chakra Puja YMCA - Camp Marston, San Diego (United States)

“Divine discretion,” Hamsa Chakra Puja, Camp Marsden, San Diego (USA), 28 May 1990.

It’s another great pleasure to
come to America to meet you all people here.

This one, as I’ve told you, is a
very important country in the field of spirituality. Not because it’s a large
country or because it is very prosperous but because, as you know, it is the
Vishuddhi in the plan of Virat. Vishuddhi is such an important chakra. It has a
very great manifestation also. […]

Easter Puja, You Have To Grow Vertically Eastbourne (England)

“You have to grow vertically,” Easter Puja, Eastbourne (UK), 22 April 1990.

Today we are here to worship the resurrection of Christ; and also to thank Him for giving us an ideal life of a saint who has to work for the benevolence of the whole world.

We talk of Christ, we sing of Shri Ganesha, we say we believe in Him, specially Sahaj Yogis feel He is the eldest brother that they have. And a tremendous surrender I find, […]

Public Program Unity of Houston Church, Houston (United States)

Public programme, Unity Church. Houston (USA), 30 May 1986.

I bow to all the seekers of truth.

One has to understand that truth is what it is, we cannot conceive it. We cannot organise it. We cannot order it. Only, as a scientific personality, we should have an open mind to see what it is. As we go to any university or any college, we try to find out what it is there, in the same way, […]

Sahastrara Puja, Nirananda Laxenburg (Austria)

Sahastrara Puja. Laxenburg, Vienna (Austria), 5 May 1985

Today, in this beautiful place created by the Queen of Austria, we have gathered here to perform the puja to the Sahastrara. When we enter into the realm of Sahastrara, then only we have a right to do the Sahastrar puja. Before this nobody talked about Sahastrara, nobody did any puja to Sahastrar. This is your privilege that you are in the realm of Sahastrara and that you can do this puja, […]

Shri Ekadasha Rudra Puja, We have to drop out many things Judy Gaddy's Apartment, New York City (United States)

Ekadasha Rudra Puja. New York City (USA), 17 September 1983.

So today is a day, according to Indian calendar, called as ‘Parivartani Ekadashi’. 

Now, today is the eleventh day of the moon. Eleventh day is ‘Ekadashi’. Also, in Sahaj Yoga, you know about Ekadasha Rudra, which is here (forehead); which will ultimately destroy all those things which are not required anymore. That is Ekadasha here, that’s the eleventh. 

But today is a special day where we are going to use the power of Ekadasha to do the ‘parivartan’ means ‘the transformation’. […]

To All Seekers of Truth Caxton Hall, London (England)

To All Seekers of Truth, Caxton Hall, London (UK), 20 May 1983.

I bow to all the seekers of truth.

We are seeking truth, reality, not hallucinations, not imagination, not our own mental projections.

We have not being yet able, many of us who are seeking, to understand that reality is what it is. It will be the same. It has been the same. We cannot coin it for ourselves. We cannot organise it, and we cannot think about it. […]

What we should expect from Self-realisation Caxton Hall, London (England)

“What We Should Expect From Self-realisation”, Public Programme, Caxton Hall, 13 September 1982
Gavin Brown: Mother, with your permission, I’d like to say one small message from the Sahaja Yogis. We have been very excited to hear today news that your brother has been appointed to the position of Minister of information for India. It’s such a great blessing for that country to have a man of such dharmic nature in that position of importance. I’d like to express our joy with this news. […]

When Are We to Grow? Hampstead Friends Meeting House, Hampstead (England)

“When Are We to Grow,” Public Programme, Hampstead (United Kingdom)
Nice to be back again in Hampstead. I always enjoyed Hampstead, because, as I have told, you in London, many people who were great, spiritual lived in this area; they preferred it to other places. So I believe that many people who live in this area must be also spiritual, must have taken their birth with the idea of achieving their Self-realisation.
It’s a very important time, […]

Understanding the Love of God Caxton Hall, London (England)

“Understanding the love of God”, Caxton Hall, London (UK), 11 May 1982.
For the last so many lectures we have been saying that you cannot pay for God’s love. It makes me laugh sometimes. Human beings can never understand His love because they live in a very limited sphere. His love is unlimited. His forgiveness is unlimited. Even this word ‘unlimited’ and ‘infinite’ we do not understand because we have not known anything like that. And to say that something is genuine is also like certifying something that is genuine. […]

Easter Puja and Havan, The Creation of Lord Jesus Nirmala Palace - Nightingale Lane Ashram, London (England)

Easter Puja, “The Creation of Lord Jesus”. Nightingale Lane Ashram, London (UK), 11 April 1982.

Today we are celebrating the day which is a very, very important issue: absolutely the most important, we can say, day, when such a great happening took place. And it had to take place that way because all, in a way, was that strict.

In my last lectures, I have told you how Christ was created first in the heavens. In the Devi Bhagvat, […]

What Have You To Surrender? Lonavala (India)

“What Have You to Surrender?” (aka “Being Connected to God”), Third Seminar Session, 4th January 1982, Lonavala, Maharashtra, (India)

Shri Mataji: Before Realisation whatever you do, as I told you, before this, is artificial, towards God, because you are not connected. Any kind of worship you do, anything you do, is not really reaching the principle of that. 

Now, for example the flame: the principle of flame is light. And unless until you are awakened, you cannot awaken the principle, […]

Seeking the Light Caxton Hall, London (England)

“Seeking the Light,” Caxton Hall, London (UK), 17 August 1981.
I must thank Warren for such a nice speech that he has given and all the Australians the way they have taken to Sahaj Yoga. They are all westernised in every sense of the word but there’s something about them where I feel that they are very quick at knowing the truth. I don’t know how. They are not that adamant against the truth. This opening somehow I found. […]

Confusion, A Sign Of Modern Times Caxton Hall, London (England)

“Confusion, A Sign of Modern Times,” Public Program. Caxton Hall, London (GB), 14 July 1980.
Today’s days in the modern times we are faced with confusions: that’s a sign of modern times. At the same time the en-masse urge to search the truth is manifesting.
It’s not only one individual who feels like that, it’s not only eight or ten people who feel like that, but masses and masses and multitudes are feeling you have to search an answer; […]

The Problem of Ego Caxton Hall, London (England)

“The Problem of Ego,” Caxton Hall, London (UK) – 22 October
1979.

From next time I’ll start the series because those who are not
here, I mean, sort of lots of people will be coming when you will be
advertising. Cooly (Tony Paniotou) did you advertise for today or for next
time? He’s also not here?

Not yet, so we’ll start it from next time, the series, like that.
Would be better for people to follow. 

Those who have come for the first
time should sit in front, […]

This is not the work of mediocres Doctor Johnson House, Birmingham (England)

“This is not the work of mediocres”, Public programme, Dr. Johnson house, Birmingham (UK), 16 June 1979.
I am really sorry we got here, reached here, on a train that was late. Things have to be done according to the timings of the Divine, you cannot plan out your own things. And that’s how sometimes one has to be later and sometimes one has to be earlier.
But one thing is definite: the time has come for the final happening of your being. […]

Advice at Bordi Shibir (English part) (India)

Advice at Bordi Shibir (English part). Bordi, Maharashtra, India. 22 March 1979.

You develop a hypertension, you become very agitated, you start dancing and doing all kinds of things.  These things can happen – that you may start dancing, jumping, shouting, doing all kinds of things, getting into licentiousness, permissiveness. Because that’s how you are let loose. The control on your being of the wisdom is lost, and then you just get into it. And you don’t feel the pinch of your conscience. […]

Deeper Meditation London (England)

“Deeper Meditation”, London, 20 February 1978

Cooly (Tony Paniotou) have you written it down?

Shri Mataji: Hello, How are you? 

Yogi: Very well, thank you.

Shri Mataji: May God bless! You can sit on the chair. Be comfortable. 

Yogi: Oh, that’s very kind! 

Shri Mataji: Ask Cooly to write it down for him.

Yogi: He is doing it.

Hello! How are you Douglas? How are you?

Douglas Fry: Very well!

Shri Mataji: Looking very fine! Just like a flower beautiful! […]

Devi Puja, “Our roots have to go down into dharma” Djamel Metouri House, St Albans (England)

“Our roots have to go down into dharma,” Talk at Djamel’s house, St Albans, England, July 6, 1977
So today I want to tell you about purity. That is my name, you know that, Nir-mala. ’Ni’ means ‘no’; ’mala’ means ‘impurities’. The one who has no impurities is Nirmala, and that’s one of the names of Goddess. 
Purity is a quality which is silent. It speaks in silence. 
It is one of the most non-aggressive activities. […]

Guru Puja, “The promises you have to make” London (England)

Today is the day of worshipping your guru: that is your Mother. And as I told you, it’s a very unique happening that Mother, Herself, has to become your Guru. 
And also you know that it is a very difficult task for a Mother to be a guru, because her love is so overflowing that it is difficult for Her to give any discipline to Her children. She cannot discipline her own love, how can she discipline her own children?  […]
