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, […]

Shri Krishna Puja Nirmal Temple, Cabella Ligure (Italy)

Shri Krishna puja. Cabella Ligure (Italy), 20 August 2000.
Today we are here to worship Shri Krishna within us. 
As you know you all have been seeking before coming to Sahaj Yoga. You went to different places, read lots of books and also some of you were lost. And, in that seeking, perhaps you did not know what you were seeking. What you were seeking was to know yourself. In all religions it is said ‘know thyself’: is a common thing all of them have said. […]

Guru Puja, Shraddha Nirmal Temple, Cabella Ligure (Italy)

Guru Puja, “Shraddha”. Cabella Ligure (Italy), 23 July 2000.

Today we are here to know about guru principle. What does a guru do. Whatever you have, all the precious things within you, he discovers them for your knowledge. Actually it is all there – everything. All the knowledge, all the spirituality, all the joy, is there. (little laughter as a dog walks on stage) Right time! (more laughter). It’s all contained within you. Only thing the Guru does (is) makes you knowledgeable about your knowledge, […]

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.

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

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, […]

Shri Krishna Puja, Dharma Nirmal Temple, Cabella Ligure (Italy)

Shri Krishna Puja, Cabella Ligure (Italy), 15 August 1993

Today we have gathered here to do Shri Krishna puja. 

We have to understand clearly that Shri Krishna is a very, very important deity within us; because He is the Vishnu, who resides in the Void, in the Nabhi. He is the one who generates dharma within us.

When you got your Realisation I didn’t tell you, “Don’t do this.” “Don’t do that.” I never told you that, […]

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, […]

Sahastrara Puja Bogota (Colombia)

Sahastrara Puja, (first puja in South America), Bogota (Colombia), 20 July 1988

It’s such a great pleasure to be here in Colombia; which was my great desire, long time back that, somehow if I could come later to this country, I may be able to start Sahaj Yoga here. Because I did feel, at that time that there are lots of seekers and very good people in Colombia. They are the seekers of truth and want to rise higher in their awareness. […]

Shri Vishnumaya Puja Pawling (United States)

Shri Vishnumaya Puja, New York (USA), 9 August 1987.
Today we have assembled here to do the puja of Vishnumaya.
Vishnumaya is created through human effort, also. As you see the clouds, when they rub against each other, then the electricity is created. So first the clouds have to be created. The sun acts on the sea. See how many chakras come into play! Sea is the Void, and the sun acts on the sea. Also the moon acts on the sea. […]

Shri Ganesha Puja, First understand vibrations clearly Auckland (New Zealand)

“First understand vibrations clearly,” Shri Ganesha puja, Auckland (New Zealand), 16th May 1987
But some of them are very good and some of them are very nice, mild people. 
Yogi: The tribes in Maharashtra have become very good now. Very good.
Mother: (Marathi)
Yogi: Some of the hills are in Maharashtra, near Amravati. But it is connected. Amravati, Vashi.
Mother: Pan Marathi boltat te log? (Marathi: But do those people speak Marathi?)
Yogi: Nahi tenche logon nahi boltat. […]

Devi Puja, Commitment and Dedication Paithan (India)

“Commitment and dedication”. Puja Talk, Paithan, Maharashtra, (India), 11 January 1987.

You must have felt the vibrations of this place: they are tremendous. And that we should come here after so many years is really very much surprising.

This place has a great connection with me, as such, because my forefathers ruled in this place. And this was the capital of Shalivahanas. It’s called as ‘Pratishathan’ but then they made as easier as ‘Paithan’. There were rulers here for thousands of years and they are the ones who started this Shalivahan dynasty. […]

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, […]

The Priorities Are To Be Changed Chelsham Road Ashram, London (England)

The priorities are to be changed, 44 Chelsham Rd, Clapham London (UK), 6 August 1985.
Now My stay in England is completing its 12th year and that is the reason I wanted to talk to you people about Sahaja Yoga. How far it has gone and where are we lacking.
The greatest thing that has happened is that we have established our religion: Nirmala Dharma as we call it, the Vishwa Nirmala Dharma. And you know the meanings of the words, […]

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 Mahalakshmi Puja, The innermost stream of Brahmanadi Kolhapur (India)

“The innermost stream of Brahmanadi” Shri Mahalakshmi Puja, Kolhapur (India), 3 February 1984.

So we are all here now in this sacred place called Kolhapur. The Goddess killed the asura called Kolhasura here, who was a very bad demon; who was born again recently, but he died also. So thank God the death of Kolhasura has taken place!

This place, specially, is marked because from the Mother Earth the Mahalakshmi energy was emitted specially from the deity of Mahalakshmi. […]

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. […]

Where does the Truth lie? Caxton Hall, London (England)

“Where does the truth lie?” Caxton Hall, London (UK), 6 July 1981.
How many are new today? I am sure somebody must have spoken before, no?
All right.
You all have been seeking, and seeking the truth about yourself.  Where does the truth lie?
When are we the most truthful people? Where, at what point, we cannot deceive, whatever we may try? When it is heartfelt. When it is our heart’s desire, then we always try to go ahead with it. […]

Christ and Forgiveness Caxton Hall, London (England)

“Christ and Forgiveness, Caxton Hall (UK),” 11 May 1981.
…to seek the truth about which all the scriptures have described. All the scriptures have said, “That you are to be born again.” You are to be born, not to read about it, not to just imagine that you are born again, not to just believe that you are born again or any artificial ritual that certifies that you are born again is to be accepted, but something definitely has to happen with us. […]

A Great Day in History, Birthday Puja Sydney (Australia)

Birthday Puja, (Shri Mataji’s first visit to Australia) Burwood, Sydney. March 21, 1981.

I’m just trying to remember if I had a more fantastic birthday than this! Where words do not come there, the joy cannot be expressed. When it becomes so deep, there is no more.

This is a great country. Australia has been created for a special purpose in Sahaj Yoga. This is the Mooladhara chakra where resides Shri Ganesha, of this world.

How important it is to keep this centre awakened. […]

Raksha Bandhan Caxton Hall, London (England)

Raksha Bandhan. London (UK), 26 August 1980.
Today in India, we celebrate a special festival. It is called as ‘Raksha bandhan’. ‘Raksha’ means protection and ‘bandhan’ means the bondage, the bondage of protection.
It’s a very nice, good, social custom to have this beautiful festival today. Today is the full moon day and this day what we do is to tie a band of threads around the person whom you want to protect. But it is done between brothers and sisters. […]

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; […]

Realisation is not of the Intellect Caxton Hall, London (England)

“Realisation is not of the Intellect”, Public Programme. Caxton Hall, London, England. 3 December 1979.
Thanks for the nice talk he gave. And also I thank all of you for coming down here.
In his frantic effort of explaining to you that you have to get something here, is the expression of his own experiences about himself. He had problems of the same style as you had. And he knows that if you go on analysing things with your brain and with your intellect then you are going to delay. […]

Knowledge of the Divine Caxton Hall, London (England)

“Knowledge of the Divine,” Public Programme, Caxton Hall, London (UK), 28 October 1979.
Every time I face the new people I have to give an introductory talk and Sahaj Yogis get sometimes impatient about it. But we have to understand that this is the knowledge of the Divine and those who have not known about it are to be told. And those who have known should know that there are many things they have not known, […]

The Problem of Ego Caxton Hall, London (England)

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

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)

Guru Puja, “The Promises You Have To Make”

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, […]

Sahajyog ki Utpatti, The origin of Sahaj Yoga Birla Kreeda Kendra, Mumbai (India)

The Origin of Sahaj Yoga, Birla Sport Center, Bombay (India), 12 July 1973 
Love does not have any language, so there are no words to describe it. When our mother loves us, how can she describe her love? Similarly, when God Almighty loved us and created this universe, He had no words to describe His love. 
When a human being has prepared their instrument, that’s when they can begin to praise God.
I have not been given a particular subject for discussion today by the organisers of the programme as we have three days to fully understand everything.  […]

Unidentified Public Programme (Location Unknown)

Unidentified Public Programme
…this you must know that I will not tell whatever is not the truth, because I am not here for any political gain, of a commercial gain. No sir, I am here for your own gain, about genuineness. If you want to gain be genuine about that. 
Now see for yourself if this is the case or not. You can see with your naked eyes – these people have seen – the Kundalini pulsating. […]
