Devi Shakti Puja, “America and Ego”. New York (USA), 8 October 1995.
I am so very happy to see so many Sahaja Yogis are here now in America. And the program we have had the other day showed us clearly that Sahaja Yoga is getting very popular and the way people got their realization in five minutes also showed that now we have touched that area of seekers who are honest and who are of a very high level in spirituality. […]
Shakti Devi Puja. Moscow (Russia), 17 Septembre 1995.
I am sorry, I was little late today, but I am sure you must have enjoyed each other and the [MAYBE company]. Enjoyment of collectivity is very great. Once it happened, I was going to some place and the plane was very late and I was little worried that I’ll be reaching late there. But actually the plane was so late that I reached after seven hours more. […]
Shri Kundalini Gauri Puja. Melbourne (Australia), 16 February 1992.
Come inside, you can, all of you can come inside, there is space. Every body, do space for these people, just move. This side.
Don’t sit in the sun.
[Shri Mataji is speaking in Hindi.]
I’m sorry today I have to speak about something unpleasant to begin with, before the Puja. Later on we’ll have the Puja of the Kundalini, the Gauri. All right?
The unpleasant things are – […]
Puja in Hyderabad, India. 11 December 1991.
We have today come to this famous place, Hyderabad, which was ruled by Muslim kings, but they were very Indian and they fought also for the independence of India with the British. You know about Tipu Sultan, who was also a realized soul but he was killed.
We have in our country one very big problem and that is, individually we are all great people, but when it comes to collective we don’t know how to live collectively, […]
Shri Gauri Puja, Auckland (New Zealand), 8 April 1991.
Gauri is the mother of Shri Ganesha and She produced Shri Ganesha because She was having a bath, and to protect Her chastity She created Shri Ganesha.
In the same way, Kundalini is the Gauri and we have got Ganesha sitting in the Mooladhara Chakra. So we have Mooladhara as the abode of the Gauri, of Kundalini, and the protection of the Kundalini is done by Shri Ganesha. […]
India Tour Puja. Shrirampur (India), 12 December 1990.
We have come to this place with the idea that we’ll be comfortable in the other place as we were before, but you must have known that there’s a man who is quite devilish, and he has tried to make this funny arrangement just to extract some money from us for doing nothing.
What I have to tell you, that we should remember that when we are doing right in this Krita Yuga, […]
Puja in Pune (extracts), India, 3 December 1990.
So, welcome to all the Sahaja Yogis from abroad. So we start from today our Maharashtra Tour, which you can see is full of these hills and dales. Also, the atmosphere is going to be extremely rustic. Of course the comforts of this place have not been up to the mark, but next year it will be much better, I’m sure. We have decided to purchase even this plot of land, […]
Puja at Ganapatipule. Ganapatipule (India), 7 January 1990.
I’m sorry today for being late, but actually I was ready and all this police case, this, that, I tell you, unnecessary waste of time. It had to be this time.
In India we believe that God Himself takes incarnations with His Vishnu principle, whenever there is the decline of righteousness, and tries to elevate. Every incarnation has done lot of work – [ Shri Mataji speaks aside in Hindi] – and have done also work within ourselves. […]
Brahmapuri Puja. Brahmapuri (India), 30 December 1989.
I’m sorry what has happened yesterday, but I think the war has begun between the evil and good, and after all the good prevails. In these modern times, evil used to prevail over good but now in this Kruta Yuga the evil will be completely conquered by good, and not that but good will spread all over. The evil has the capacity to go to extremes and then to fall out of the evolutionary process completely, […]
Puja in Shrirampur (India), 21 December 1989.
Backwards, those who haven’t got space please move backwards. Be sensible. You all can see Me very well and those who are far away are closer to Me; is a fact. When I say the truth, the Vishnumaya is there. Please be seated. Hello. Uska kya naam? Jenny, you go that side. Don’t sit with men. Must keep a discipline on yourself. Those who are sitting here please move to the left. […]
First puja of India tour ’89, Alibag (India), 17 December 1989.
Welcome to you all. It has been little bit delayed but just now they have informed Me that the plane is delayed even much more so I thought it’s better to have the puja now, though the English had told us that they would like to attend from the very beginning. They always get many more pujas, that may be the reason!
So now we have all arrived here and we are going to start this pilgrimage of travelling together. […]
So here we are in Finland and that’s… are begetting itself a little bit, because is the end of land, you see, so all the problems come and settle in the end, you see? And that’s how we’ve see here, there are lots of negative forces that have been working very nicely, and also there aren’t so many seekers. So it’s more attraction for them to come here and attack the seekers. So now when you take to Sahaja yoga, […]
Shri Devi Puja, “The Essence of Self Respect”. Istanbul (Turkey), 27 May 1989.
I’ve been desiring all the time that I should go to Turkey or Tunisia where there could be an entry into the Islamic world, because they have been promised that they will be resurrected, and that resurrection has to take place.
For that I have to venture and give them their resurrection which is promised by Mohammed Sahib, I mean that’s My duty; […]
Puja in Alibag (India), 30 December 1988.
So we have come to the end of our tour and you all will be going to your countries in different directions. Now we have to look back and see what did we learn in this tour and what did we understand. There has been less talking from Me, I don’t know about you people, but there was a tremendous dynamic force which was working the movement, organization and the correction part of it. […]
Puja Talk, Brahmapuri (India), 20 December 1988.
Place, which we call as Brahmapuri here called, perhaps, may be because here Shri Ramadasa, the guru of Shivaji Maharaj, in these deep waters found the statue of Shri Rama, Sita, Lakshmana and Hanumana together. Then they were carried from here and put in a temple called Chapar, the place where I saw that also. And there we have Hanumanas. Eleven Hanumanas came out of the Mother Earth to say that he was the incarnation of Hanumana. […]
Puja Talk at India Tour. Pune (India), 17 December 1988.
So now welcome to you all for this Puna place. In the Shastras is described as Punya Patana, meaning the city of Punyas. That’s the reason I wanted to stay in Puna, thinking that people are very auspicious and full of punyas, and I am sure I’ll find them very soon, all those who have come to this place will be there available for Sahaja Yoga. […]
Puja Talk, India Tour. Vaitharna (India), 3 December 1988.
This program has been arranged by Vaitharna and Bombay Sahaja Yogis to welcome you all to India. Give them a hand. (Applause)
All the way you all have travelled to come to this Holy Land, I should say, for your spiritual growth.

[…]
Puja. Barcelona (Spain), 21 May 1988.
Beautiful surroundings… the nature is all watching us. The Mother Earth has created such beautiful scenes for us to see. When I was born in Chindwara, that also has the same kind of surrounding. Now, of course, they have cleared out lot of places but still if you go a little further, about say twenty miles, then you find the same kind of big jungles. They are full of tigers, […]
Puja Talk, India Tour. Ganapatipule (India), 6 January 1988.
It is said that God is Satchitanand. He is truth, He is attention and He is joy. In Sahaja Yoga, first you have discovered the truth. Discover the truth on your fingertips. The truth that you can discover on your central nervous system is the truth. First you discover the truth and you can tell about it, talk about, explain about it but you cannot give it to others unless and until the other person gets Realization. […]
Puja. Kolhapur (India), 30 December 1987.
Today when I was coming from the shopping, I couldn’t get into the car. One foot was inside, and another would not leave it. So I came out of the car and then I knew that Mahalakshmi’s temple there were bells ringing and the aarti was on. So [INAUDIBLE WORD] Mahalakshmi didn’t want me to get into the car. I had to stand outside ’till the whole thing was over. […]
Attention on Quality, Rahuri (India), 20 December 1987.
I’m sorry what has happened about the boys who came here and who created a problem, and there’s another problem with us. So I would like to tell you again that next time when you are coming, please see that you don’t bring anybody who has not done Sahaja Yoga for six years? six months? at least. The first one is correct, because in six years also they can be quite stupid. […]
Complete your Self-realisation, Puja in Aurangabad (India), 19 December 1987.
I am sorry I was dealing with some newspaper people, journalists, and they came very late. Whatever it is, I found them to be very sensible and very understanding.
All of us have come to Aurangabad now, and it seems this place is full of vibrations. Maybe [because] here, Shalivahana has ruled in this area. But also [because] there have been many saints who were born on this side of Maharashtra. […]
Welcome Talk at India Tour, Alibag (India) 13 December 1987.
Welcome to all of you. This is a great country, it is also passing through a crisis. Nowadays I feel there are so many things that are happening which you could never dream before and at this time you all have arrived bringing peace and joy to all of them. So I thank you for that.
The strife and the pain which is on human beings is perhaps because they are not yet worthy of God’s blessings, […]
Puja Talk. Paithan (India), 11 January 1987.
You must have felt the vibration of this place that tremendous and that you come here after so many years nearly when you were surprise.
This place has a great connection with me as such because my fore-father’s ruled in this place and this was the capital of Shalivahan called as Pratishatha and they made as easier as Paithan.
There were rulers for thousand of years and one who started this Shalivahan Dynasty as they called Satvahan (i.e Seven Vahanas and they represented as seven vahanas as Seven Chakras); […]
Puja at Brahmapuri. Brahmapuri (India), 27 December 1986.
This is a special month in India and it is nice that we are organizing this program during this month called as the Marga Sheersha, means where Marga means the road and Sheersha is the head, which leads you to the Epitome, that’s the month. And in this month they worship Guru because of His birthday of Dattatreya and also they worship Mahalakshmi. That means this is the month of Shushumna, […]
Puja in Nassik at Dr. Sanghvi House, Nassik (India), 23 December 1986.
So now we have here one of the most ancient places called Nasik. I think you must have heard about what happened when Shri Rama and Sita were staying here, why this place was called as Nasik that I will tell you in short. This is the place where Shri Rama and Sita and Lakshmana were staying and the sister of Ravana, because Ravana’s some of the empires, […]

Shri Mataji explains that She will first talk in English then in Marathi.
English talk starts at 7:43
I bow to all the Sahaja Yogis.
In this beautiful surround, surroundings, many of you are wondering why God has created these beautiful things.

And now God feels very much fulfilled with the joy and satisfaction and a kind of a completion of His desire. […]
Devi Puja, French seminar. Dourdan (France), 18 May 1986.
Today we have gathered here in this beautiful place to work out something very deep. There are certain things of which we are not aware, which are in the history, and some things in the atmosphere, they affect us very much because we are the product of five elements out of which the Mother Earth is the left side within us. The Mother Earth changes its atmosphere, […]
1986-01-25 Puja in Madras
Please be seated. Madras is known for perfect rituals about puja and that is how in the growth of our awareness even towards God and towards the rituals we have moved from reality. As they say the tree of awareness grows downwards so in the West it grew towards materialism, grew towards something that was filthy went down and down. But as Shri Krishna has said the roots are in your head But in the Hindu religion it didn’t go that bad. […]

(Ask her. Natalie, come here. Join hands with Danya. Are you all right, Ray, now? Put kumkum to everyone. Just take that, see, you can leave that here. All the ladies, put it on.)
Yesterday one boy stood up and asked Me a question, that “When we are such a yoga bhoomi, we are such a holy country, why is it that all the discoveries in the science are made in the West?”
“Very good question,” I said. […]
Puja in Dr. Sanghve’s Garden, Nasik (India), 17 December 1985.
This place Nasik has a special significance. Long time back, say about eight thousands years back, when Shri Rama went away for his exile, he came to Maharashtra and he passed through various places and he settled down in Nasik, this place, with his wife.
And here a lady who was actually the sister of Ravana, called Shurpanakha, she tried to entice Shri Rama. Now this quality of enticing men or enticing women are really demonic and that is how people call them ‘rakshasas’. […]

English Transcript missing
[translated from Hindi]
On today’s auspicious occasion we have gathered here. Today is the 7th day of the Goddess. On the 7th day, the Devi Goddess destroyed the various rakshasas and sinners, because they were torturing the great saints and rishis who were doing meditation and penance.
We wonder, ‘Mother, why they did so much penance? What was the need?’ The reason for doing it was because although human ascent was still low, […]
Devi Puja, Sydney (Australia), 10 March 1985.
Breeze will blow, now you won’t have problems.
It is such a joy to see so many Sahaja yogis of such high evolution. I’m sure all the gods and goddesses and the God Almighty Himself must be overjoyed to see this achievement, no doubt about it. But I was told that you want to know higher ways or higher things by which you would like to ascend higher and higher. […]

Puja at Brahmapuri. Brahmapuri (India), 29 January 1985.
Today was a very great day for all of you to jump in the river and enjoy yourselves very much. I remember the past of such days which I have also enjoyed before.

You can use this as a memory for yourself, […]

So this is a place where [the] Goddess has done a lot of work. […]
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.

So allow these gross sensitivities to drop down so that the inner, […]
