TV interview by Santo Biasatti
Interviewer: It is difficult on this time to talk about the spirit?
Shri Mataji: That’s most essential at this time. We are in a chaotic world, because we don’t know that we are the spirit. All this restlessness is because we have to still become the spirit. Without that we are still at the human level. And we live in a relative world while we have to be in the absolute. […]

After Birthday Felicitations. Calcutta (India), 20 March 1994.
This was a song composed by Gurudev Rabindranath Tagore, so many years back, when He had a vision of our Ganapati Pule seminars, where He describes that people from all the world will come, from different countries will come. Also, the Hindus, the Muslims, Christians, Sikhs and all kinds of communities will get their awakening on the bank of the sea. ‘Sagar’ is the sea. So beautifully every detail He has described. […]

Shri Mahalakshmi Puja. Kalwe (India), 30 December 1992.
I would say those who have been worrying and all that should go into great meditation and understand that you are insulting yourself. You are saints.

All those who have worried you have come here under My protection and you will go back under My protection! […]

[note for 1986-05-04 date – I would suggest that the date of the talk would be later than that attributed to it as the children are already in India when Shri Mataji is speaking, and I think they first went to India a little later than this]

So now most of you are here and it’s a nice place for all of you to be here from different countries. Aurangabad has a special significance in My own life because My forefathers came from a place very near from here called as Paithan but originally known as Prathisthan.
I think about two years back we were there. And this is the place where Valmiki, […]
The International Situation
[A Talk given in response to a request from a Sahaja yoga. Location unknown. Possibly UK]
The state of our planet, or Mother Earth, is very precarious. On one side we see signs of great destruction at the hands of human beings and which are therefore our own creation. The potent idea of destruction is at work, is in human beings, but it creates destruction on the outside. This destructiveness is not necessarily deliberate, […]
Public Program Day 1, Hotel Grande Bretagne, Athens (Greece)
500 years before Christ, the great master Socrates [UNCLEAR in your country] told the whole world that we have to know ourselves. And he was wisdom personified. But he was killed. He didn’t do any harm. He just told everyone for their benevolence. He didn’t live for himself. And he lived for others. He did not take any money from anyone for his knowledge nor did he punish anyone but he was punished. […]
We Are Here For Our Ascent, Pune
You have come for your ascent, for a pilgrimage, and certain things have to be borne in mind — that we have to see that our thinking has to go down first. I don’t mind suffering, but my suffering doesn’t help you much. So I have to request you not to say, “I thought.”
Then I’ve seen people go on lingering about. There’s no movement, very lethargic movement, very slow movement, […]

Talk to Austrian Sahaja Yogis, Bordi (India), 13 [or 14?] February 1984.
Now Austria is very strategically placed in Sahaja Yoga, it’s a bridge. It’s a bridge between the left and the right.
