Evening Program, Eve of Shri Hanumana Puja – Pune (India), Tuesday, March 30th 1999
is a great desire of My father being fulfilled, that he wanted to
start a music academy for all the foreigners especially. Because it
seems that our knowledge of classical music is very deep and is of a
global nature and so we got lots of students from all over the world
who are studying music. Most surprising was the way they picked up
our classical music. […]

Hello! [Taps mic] Alright?
“I bow to all the seekers of truth”
At the very outset we have to know that truth is what it is. You cannot change it, you cannot describe it and you cannot say you know the truth. Unless and until you now it, it is not truth. It is a very big problem that people believe they know the truth, […]
Birthday Puja, March 21, 1991, Mumbai, translation from Hindi
whole world is gleefully celebrating our birthday. All this makes me
so emotional that till now no children would have loved their mother
so much, like you love me. This is the glory of Shree
he would behold His Mother above all deities and would be engrossed
in Her service. Therefore, He could accomplish everything. It is a
natural instinct for every mother to love her children and to
sacrifice everything for them. […]
Evening Program, Debu Choudhry Concert, Eve of Diwali Puja
Remarks on the evening before, audio 3, 1:19 minutes:
Same ideas; it is all self-destructive, believe Me. You look funny with it. All right, little oil, do it properly, make it properly combing, you are not hippies. This thing started with the hippyism. Now hippy is finished. Now a new thing has started, yuppies, they put oil, nicely do groom their hair. I don’t want you to be yuppies either, […]
Shri Krishna Puja. St Quentin (France), 16 August 1987.
It was very beautiful of [the] children to come and receive me in this beautiful manner. It can take you back to the days of Krishna when, in his childhood, he was very much respected by his friends and they tried to do all the honour that was possible. You know the story of his birth. And here we have the flowing of water, both the sides. […]
Public Program, “The Knowledge of the Roots”. Cardiff (UK), 8 August 1984.
I bow to all the seekers of truth. It gives me immense pleasure to come to Cardiff again for this programme of Sahaja Yoga. They must have explained to you what is Sahaja Yoga. That is, ‘Saha’ is ‘with’ and ‘Ja’ is ‘born’–it is born with you and all of us have a birth right to get this spontaneous yoga, that is the union with the Divine. […]
Public Program. Guild Hall, Derby (UK), 1 August 1984.
I bow to all the seekers of truth. It’s a great pleasure to come to Derby, and I must extend My apologies for getting late as the train was late from London. We are here today to know about the truth, about what we are, about what we are going to be. All these questions relate to the unknown knowledge of our roots. Whatever we know from science or from any other mental projection is the knowledge of the tree. […]

Puja at Mula Dam, “Achieve the power of Spirit within”. Rahuri (India) 25 February 1984 .
I hope your journey has been comfortable so far and will be comfortable later on, as the source of comfort is your Spirit. And more you see to the comfort of your Spirit the problems of outside comforts drop off. You are not bothered as to where you live, where you sleep, what you eat, what you do. So allow these gross sensitivities to drop down so that the inner, […]
1983-1015 Navaratri Puja
……… used are not known to you because he is telling about
another side of life. As we are human beings you see all our history
is connected to each other. First of all, you have to forget that you
are Americans or you are Canadians or you are Indians. You have to
know the human history has to be followed as complete as complete
human history. And behind the history of spirituality, […]
Public Program Day 3. Urania, Vienna (Austria), 6 September 1983.
I bow to all the seekers of Spirit. We have already heard about the Kundalini, the chakras, the balancing process in our body. Now, when the Kundalini rises and when She crosses this center called as Agnya Chakra, then you become thoughtlessly aware, called as Nirvichara Samadhi.
A thought rises and falls off, another thought comes and falls off; it disappears into the past. It may come from future or from past, […]
Agnya chakra. Delhi (India), 3 February 1983.
Today we are going to understand the centre of Agnya. Agnya Chakra, which is placed on the crossing of the ‘optic chiasma.’ The nerves that supply the eyes go backwards in the opposite direction and wherever they cross, this subtle centre is situated. It has a continuous connection with the other centres through the ‘medulla oblongata.’
This centre has got two petals. And this subtle centre on one side acts through the eyes and at the back of the head where you have some protrusion. […]
Seminar, Dedication Through Meditation, Morning
(Transcript starts from 23:45)
Question: What to say to somebody who comes up and says very concernedly: ‘what is the difference between Sahaja Yoga and these…?’
Shri Mataji: What’s it?
Man: What’s the difference between what You are doing and what these cults or these other gurus are doing? The all seem saying the same thing…?
Shri Mataji: ‚They are using the same language… Ah, you see, because in 1970 I was in America, […]
Talk before Havan after the Bhoomi Puja
[PROBABLY A PART IS MISSING] Sahaja Yoga is such a light that you start seeing things so clearly. You understand who is the person, who is the positive, who is the person who is negative. The other day as we were discussing the writers we could feel those people who were positive, who were realized souls and those who were now not and how some of the people were affected. […]
Shri Bhoomi Devi Puja. Derby (UK), 12 July 1982.
The Puja is celebrated outside, on a very windy and cool day. When Shri Mataji arrives, She looks upward towards the sky. Then Shri Mataji sits down on Her chair and takes a small girl in Her arms. She will keep her on Her lap during the whole talk.
Today I was telling Rustom that we should do of course the Puja of the Bhumi, because She’s angry actually, […]
Mahashivaratri Puja, New Delhi, India, February, 20th, 1982
Today is the day when we celebrate Mahashivaratri. Is a great day, or we should say great night. This puja should have been in the night. Is a great night when Shiva was established on this earth. Because that way Shiva is eternal. So, one would say that, “Why Shiva?” like a birthday of Shiva you can say or something, “How can it be?”, because He is eternal, […]
Public Program. Lakshmi Narayan temple, New Delhi (India), 18 February 1981.
Press the button and the light will start coming. If I tell you what is its history and how it came into being, what is this electricity, then you will get a headache specially…(UNCLEAR WORD).
If you are ready to break your heads, I am even ready to do that. If you want to discuss your intellect, let’s do that. I know that also, but you won’t be able to find God. […]
“The Mahalakshmi Power,” Diwali Puja. Hampstead (London), 9 November 1980
…English, in the sense that we sat down together and translated Sanskrit puja into English and tried to make it more understandable by you people.
It’s the day of Mahalakshmi puja they say, not only of Lakshmi Puja. There’s a difference between the two.
Mahalakshmi is one of the powers of the three powers, main powers, of Adi Shakti. As you know: Mahalakshmi, […]
Birthday Puja. London (UK), 23 March 1980.
The birthday of Your Mother, and all such celebrations have a very deep significance, because on such occasions, special vibrations flow in the atmosphere. When all the celestial bodies, the Eternal Personalities, Gods and Goddesses sing the praise, and that’s how the whole atmosphere is filled with mirth and happiness. Human beings also, express their gratitude. Expression of gratitude and love is done in different, different ways in different countries, […]
Guru Puja. Dollis Hill Ashram, London (UK), 8 July 1979.
Today is the day of Guru Purnima. It is a full moon day, that’s why it’s called as purnima. The guru has to be like a full moon: means completely grown, completely matured.
There are sixteen kalas, or the phases, of the moon, and when the complete purnima comes in, the full moon day, all the sixteen kalas are completed. You also know that in the Vishuddhi chakra there are sixteen sub plexuses. […]
“Spirit, Attention, Mind”, Finchley Ashram, London (UK), 20th February 1978.
As I have said, now Christine had asked me, “What is our surrendering?” And he has asked me if we have a free will or not. All right?
You have a free will of your own. Especially human beings have it, not the animals. You have the free will to choose good and bad, righteous and unrighteousness. Now, you can choose to surrender, or not to surrender, […]
