Dassehra. Tenth day of Navaratri, Sydney (Australia), 21 October 2007.
Mother looks at yoginis, smiles and says ‘Very happy’.
Please sit comfortably.
Today is the (indistinct) great day , isn’t it (ji) Dassera.
[Yogis organize a microphone for Shri Mataji]
Is it coming?
So today is Dassera, is a very big day in India. They say on this day Ravana was killed. He was the worst enemy of human beings, and he was killed. But whatever it is then, […]
Sashti. Sixth night of Navaratri, Sydney (Australia), 17 October 2007.
Shri Mataji speaks:
This is too small. (speaks in Hindi) You can get a good hall here, very easily. Actually I never knew that there’s a programme otherwise I would have told you. Here also, come along, there is room here. Can you hear me there? (Yogis ‘YES!’) Come forward, here put the piano that side in the corner? Why is she crying? What has she got, […]
Second day of Navaratri, October 13, 2007, Sydney, Australia
Come here also, come in, sit here, another one also (talking to people), come forward. There are people who could not sit. Can you go and see if every one is inside?
Sorry, I didn’t know you were all here. Now she said, so I said all right.
You can here me there ? All of you? Those who can’t hear raise your hand! [laughter]
All right, […]
Navaratri Puja, Birthday of Shri Gauri, Ellenville, New York (USA), 12 October 2003.
Today we are going to celebrate the puja of Gauri. She came on this earth many-a-times, to kill the people who were doing wrong things, who were trying to kill good people. She has done Her level (best) to do that, and today we are celebrating Her birthday.
You all know so much about it, that I need not tell you, but what you have to know is that She came on this earth to save you from all kinds of troubles. […]
Navaratri Puja, Wisdom Through Meditation, Bhakti & Shraddha, Los Angeles (USA), 27 October 2002.
Today, we are going to worship the Goddess. That’s the, first the left side programming is with Her, but later on, at Sahastrara, She’s the Adi Shakti. And, on the left side, whatever She does is already written, as you must have seen, because She’s the memory and She’s the wisdom and, that She protects you, is shown when She uses Her power over the Ganas. […]
Navaratri Puja. Loutraki (Greece), 21 October 2001.
Today we have gathered here to do the Devi Puja. This Puja was performed many a times and the Devi was requested by the Devas to save them from the tyranny of devilish people. Today I feel the same way, that we are now in the grip of a funny (strange) situation; that there are people who are themselves devils, I think, – and also (people who are) mesmerised by them – who are trying to do something which they should never have done. […]
Navaratri Puja. Cabella Ligure (Italy), 8 October 2000.
Today we are going to worship the Devi, called as Amba, and by many other names. She is the last, we should say, the “residual power”. When She has done everything, She becomes the Kundalini and settles in the triangular bone of yours. This is the Mooladhar Chakra. But actually She is expressed more on the left side, because, that time, She is purely the Amba.
This left side is a very, […]
Navaratri puja. Cabella Ligure (Italy), 17 October 1999.
Tonight we have gathered here to do the Puja to the Devi, that is Mahakali –we can call Her, or Durga. So many types of forms She has taken, to kill the negative forces that are trying to trouble or to obstruct, or even to grow the people who were gentle and good.
Her forms are of different types – that we know about, that She destroyed so many rakshasas, […]
Navaratri puja, “The Pure Knowledge”, Cabella (Italy), 27 September 1998.
You can’t imagine how a Mother who has so many beautiful children, sees them in such a joyous mood with their families, their children nicely settled down. It is very satisfying to see you all so much in joy and complete oneness with the Divine.
One has to realise only one thing, that, though you are many, still, compared to the population of this world, we are very few who really know the True Knowledge, […]
Navaratri Puja, “Your Beautiful Qualities will prove the Truth of Sahaja Yoga”. Cabella (Italy), 5 October 1997.
[Upon arrival Shri Mataji is welcomed by yogis singing “Durgati Harani Durga Ambe”]
Today is the sixth day of Navaratri.
There have been many incarnations of the Goddess for different, different purposes. But when the great saints introspected themselves, who were worshipping the Mother, they found out that what She has done for us.
The other day I told you the dharma is the innate valency of human beings. […]
“Materialism, Nature and Balance”, Evening before Navaratri Puja. Cabella (Italy), 4 October 1997.
[During the evening program, after some musical performances and a play by the English, the Swiss sahaja yogis acted in a play where they openly denounced the Swiss bank (about its money laundering etc.). Ultimately they recited the “litany for the doom of Materasura”, the demon of materialism:]
“Litany for the doom of Materasura”:
This is a world that feeds the Swiss Banks’ Octopus. […]
Navaratri Puja. Cabella ligure (Italy), 20 October 1996.
Today is a special day, as you know we are worshipping the Goddess, who came on this earth nine times before, to kill all the demons and all the negativity and relieve all the bhaktas to worship. All her work has already been described. Despite that they find, new type of devils, new type of negative people, have come back. Perhaps it had to be. This had to be maybe, […]
Navaratri Puja. Cabella Ligure (Italy), 1 October 1995.
Yesterday you have seen how Durga used to protect all the seekers – sadhakas, and how she killed the people who have been troubling, torturing, killing the seekers of truth. Her whole advent was to protect them from all these evil forces. In those days that was the most important work. So that’s how the sadhakas came up to these modern times and now they are seekers of truth or they have found the truth. […]
Navaratri Puja, Cabella Ligure, (Italy), 9 October 1994.
Today we are going to do puja for Navaratri. Yesterday you saw, beautiful description of Navaratri and how the Mother Goddess has created all kinds of powers within you. It’s not that only She has the powers, but you all have the powers, and you can all work it out, you can all find out whether these powers are there or not.
With us, the realisation is very important, […]
Navaratri Puja. Cabella (Italy), 24 October 1993.
Today we have gathered here to do the puja of the Devi. The Devi has many forms, but is the embodiment of the Shakti. Adi Shakti gives Shakti to all these embodiments and so there are many Goddesses we have.
At different times they came on this Earth and did all that was necessary for the ascent of people who were seekers. Especially the one we know of, Jagadamba, […]
Navaratri Puja. Cabella Ligure (Italy), 27 September 1992.
Today is the first day of Navaratri. And when I found that the rain was there and all kinds of problems, and Vishnumaya was suggesting some things, I just consulted the calendar, and you will be amazed to know that in the calendar it is written that till five forty-five it’s not auspicious – it’s inauspicious. After five forty-five only the right thing starts, so just imagine, by calculation how it was correct that five forty-five we had to have this puja, […]
Navaratri Puja. Cabella (Italy), 13 October 1991
Today we have gathered here to do the Navaratri puja.
There were nine times when the major incarnations of the Mother of this universe were manifested. They are manifested with a purpose. That purpose is to protect Her bhaktas, Her disciples, Her children. This was a binding love, She could not escape it. Mother’s love is binding, She cannot escape it. And She has to manifest it, work it out and give that protection to all her children. […]
Navaratri Puja, “The deities are watching you”. Arzier, Geneva (Switzerland), 23 September 1990.
According to the calendar, this year there are ten days of Navaratri, not of nine. Nine are the days, in the night, when the Goddess had to fight the demons and to save Her children from the effects of negativity. On one side She was ocean of love and compassion, and on the other side She was protecting them like a tigress; because the times were such that nobody could meditate, […]
Navaratri Puja, “Destroy the demons inside yourselves”. Margate (UK), 8 October 1989.
It was very spontaneously decided that we should have the Devi Puja in England. And this is the place where really Devi Puja should be, because it’s the place of Sadashiva and where Adi Shakti should be worshipped.
We have to today understand that why do we do Devi Puja? What is the reason for this Devi Puja? What do we get out of it? […]
Talk to English Yogis, 8th day of Navaratri, Margate, 6th October 1989
Today is the eighth day of the Devi puja and, on this day, the power of Kali acts and She is the one called as Samhara Kali, meaning the one who destroys all the evil forces. So it is a very good day, that we have a puja here, in England. I am very happy about it.
My spectacles? In my purse, I think. […]
Navami, ninth night of Navaratri, Pune (India), 19 October 1988.
Today is the last day of Navaratri. This should be the culminating pint for all of us, as you see, within us, as you know, that there are seven chakras for you ascent and two above it. That should be your destiny. But if you people go only on the agnya move on agnya, you cannot rise any higher. People have been lost on that chakra. […]
Eighth Day of Navaratri. Pune (India), 18 October 1988.
In the ‘Mahalaxmi Strotum, why should we have all these. Because it is the Kundalini. The Mahalaxmi is the channel of the Kundalini, so there are ASHTA LAXMIS. Then Mahalaxmi and lastly the DAKSHA LAKSHMI. We have got one after another these powers within us which are expressed on the Mahalaxmi channel. Now, in the Mahalaxmi channel we have to talk about Gauri. Because Gauri is the one which is the Kundalini. […]
7th Day of Navaratri
[Verses of ‘Devi Atharva Sheersha’ from ‘Durga Saptashati’ were read, where the Devi speaks for Herself. Shri Mataji clarifies and explain in between:]
*When you give joy to someone. The source of joy has to be beyond joy.
* I am the giver of knowledge.
* Without the light of “Atma” without the light of the ‘Spirit’ how can you know anything?
* You see the source is unborn, it can take birth because it is primordial, […]
1988-10-16 Sixth Day of Navaratri 1988 Pune
(Translated from a talk given in Hindi)
This is a worship of the Shakti. Until now many saints, sages have known and revealed about this Shakti. Whatever they could not describe in prose, they trued to convey by poetry. Whatever description was not possible to put in words – they composed different names of the Devi and described. We know all this and many people also know the meaning of this. […]
Fifth Day of Navaratri
You are Sahaja Yogis.
What is your destiny?
Your destiny is to achieve the spiritual success (spiritual ascent).
The Devi destroyed ‘Chanda and Munda ‘, that is why she is called Chamunda. They are all back in this Kali-yuga, all of them.
[Prayer to the Devi: ‘O Devi, Please give us the spiritual personality, the victory, the spiritual ascent and destroy our enemies’.]
[Shri Mataji Explains and Translates ‘Jogava’]
Saint Eknath was from ‘Pratishthaana’, […]
4th Day of Navaratri
[Kavach of the Devi, which was read partly on the third day, got completed today.]
So we have made it short now, just take a ‘bandhan’, it is he same thing as Kavacha you see. Realised souls, if they take bandhan is the same thing. Whatever you have said here is done, yesterdays and todays, everything that has been said, all these Raksha Kari is done in one stroke.
But now we should know how many of us take bandhan before going from the house, […]
3rd Day of Navaratri
So many powers Mother has to have to protect her children and to look after them. These powers are all there, working relentlessly all the time-24 hours. So anybody who surrenders to Mother, these powers express themselves and try to help you out of your problems. But first thing is surrendering. If you are not surrendered, if you are not in the kingdom of the God, then this is not the responsibility of the Mother. […]
Eve of Navaratri Puja. Kolkata (India), 10 October 1986.
[The video begins with video footage of Shri Mataji going around the city with Sahaja Yogis to see pendals/temples of Shri Durga. While watching one pendal, suddenly the music played changes from Indian classical songs to more rhythmical music. Shri Mataji says to the Yogis: “… to please you they are giving you all rock and roll and all kinds of music just to please you… rock and roll for the sahaja yogis” (Not perfectly audible – laughter from yogis)
Cut in the video.]
Shri Mataji: How many have you to report at 10 o’clock on the 17th night – 16th night? […]
1986-10-05 Navaratri, Shri Gauri Puja (Hindi/Marathi)
First, I will talk in Hindi and then in Marathi language. All of you should try to learn Hindi as it is our national language.
The name of Pune is famous in the Vedas, Puranas and many other such places. It is called as Punyapatnam. The river which flows in this place is called as Mula river. It has been flowing here for thousands of years and is making this place full of punyas. […]
Navaratri puja. Weggis (Switzerland), 19 October 1985.
Today is a great day of Navaratri, we are sitting on the cusp of the sixth and the seventh. Sixth and the seventh is the day when Mahasaraswati finished Her work and the incarnation of the Shakti itself started. So, at twelve o’clock today the Devi takes the Shakti upon Herself.
Of course, as you know, that Mahakali and Mahasaraswati, both are the powers of Shri Sadashiva. Adi Shakti first formed Herself into Mahakali, […]
Ashtami Puja, Eighth day of Navaratri, Meudon, Paris (France), 30 September 1984.
Today is the eighth day of Navaratri, but it is great day for Sahaja Yogis because it is the most important period. That is, the seventh centre we have crossed and we are on the eighth centre. We need not think of the Goddess what She did on the eighth day, we have to think today what we have to do within ourserlves.
After crossing the seventh day, […]
Navaratri Puja, London Hampstead (UK), 23 September 1984.
[Conversation with a Yogi about the mike.]
Sahaja Yogi: They’ve gone out to get some batteries for the mike.
Shri Mataji: All of them should come and sit in front, all the children, the girls, or at the back in the chair.
[Cut in the video]
Today is a great day for all of us – Can you hear me there? – that we are celebrating Navaratri today and all of us are meeting after such a long time of My tour. […]
Navaratri Puja, “Innocence and Virginity”. Temple of All Faiths, Hampstead, London (England), 17 October 1982.
It’s a great thing today that we are celebrating the Virgin’s worship in England. As you know, according to Sahaja Yoga, England is the heart where resides the Spirit of Shiva. And that Virgin should be respected and revered and worshipped in England is a great honour, I think, for all the Sahaja Yogis.
Now one has to think why such an importance is paid to a Virgin. […]
Navaratri Puja, New York (USA), 29 September 1981.
“It was so pre-planned today by the Divine, I should say, that today is a very great day. In the first advent of the Holy Ghost came on this Earth this day. That was about fourteen thousands years back. And today is the day that is celebrated as the first advent. And there are nine advents She has had, before She came as the Mahalakshmi. So first, today I will be telling you about it –how She is placed within us, […]
Navaratri Puja. Hampstead, London (UK), 19 October 1980.
So you have already heard about the importance of today in the life of the Goddess. And that today is Ravana was killed and that’s how there were celebrations. It still reflects itself [unsure]
As you know very well that all the satanic forces which one had to face one at the time are all back on the stage and they are to be defeated. The greatest problem of modern times is that these satanic forces have taken a very subtle form and they enter into your psyches and into your egos. […]
Advent Seminar at Sundrabai Hall. Mumbai, India. 29 September 1979.
Shri Mataji: Shri Vijay Merchant, Mr. Rakure, all the Sahaja Yogis who have come here to express their love for Me and all the rest of the people who are in the search of truth. It was really a very gracious of Shri Merchant to come and inaugurate this book. I have been from My childhood watching his cricket. I must say I’m quite a big cricket fan Myself. […]
Navaratri Celebrations: “Kundalini and Kalki Shakti”. Mumbai, Maharashtra, India. 28 September 1979.
Today I am going to address you in English language, as desired by you. Even tomorrow perhaps we may have to use this foreign language.
Today’s subject is the relationship between Kundalini and Kalki. The word Kalki, actually is an abbreviation of the word Nishkalank. Nishkalank means the same as my name is, which means Nirmala: that there it is a spotlessly clean, something that is spotlessly clean is Nishkalanka, […]
Advice (Hindi) “Shri Kundalini Shakti and Shri Jesus Christ”. Hinduja Auditorium, Bombay (India), 27 September 1979.
The subject “Shri Kundalini Shakti and Shri Jesus Christ” is very attractive and interesting. It is altogether a new subject for the common people because nobody has at any time before, attempted to establish any connection between Jesus Christ and Shri Kundalini Shakti. On the Virata tree of religion, saints of various kinds bloomed as flowers in many countries and languages. […]
