I bow to all the seekers of truth. Yesterday I told you that truth is what it is. You cannot change it, you cannot transform it, and you cannot know it by reading.

I bow to all the seekers of Truth. We have to know at the very outset that Truth is what is is. We cannot conceptualise it. We cannot change it. It has been, it is and it will be. But we have to know the absolute Truth. So far whatever we know through our human awareness is not absolute. That’s why there are so many differences, so many different ideologies.

Public Program Day 1

They are all in the same business, be-fooling people, mesmerizing them, destroying their chakras and making money out of them. I mean there are institutions, yesterday we discovered one lady who had been to some authorized institution for some sort of psychological analysis.

You develop a balance in life Paris Marriott Rive Gauche Hotel, Paris (France)

Public Program Day 2. Paris (France), 11 July 1989.

It’s only possible because they are Sahaja Yogis. Because it’s a very difficult language. And music is very intricate and the rhythm also is very difficult. It’s surprising you all have joined it so well. If I tell this in India, nobody will believe.

So yesterday we were talking about this power within us, which rises and gives us our Self Realization. This is our own power, […]

When you are baptized you must get the cool breeze of the Holy Ghost coming out of your head Auditorium 44, Brussels (Belgium)

Public Program

By the people who themselves are corrupt, money-oriented, one gets disillusioned. Also, there is a category of people who find that in searching money and power they have achieved the joy of life, but there’s another category of people, who are aware that they have not been able to find the absolute truth. William Blake calls them as men of God. And such people would be born in these modern times, has been predicted a long time back. […]

Talk on marriage, Songs, Shri Mataji giving names. Ashram in Le Raincy, Le Raincy (Paris-France), November 4th, 1987

It’s nice to see you all here, to meet
you all. Now, we were very successful in these programs and so many
people came. I’m sure they will be coming again.

Some of them are such that they may not

that. Because one lady came and asked Me: “How do you say that
Hitler was the disciple of Dalai Lama?” […]

The truth of the Divine is beyond the human awareness ​​Ancien Hôtel Communal, Brussels (Belgium)

Public Program Day 1, Ancien Hôtel Communal, Brussels, Belgium 10.07.1987

<Introduction in French>

I Bow to all the seekers of Truth!

As you are here to find out truth, you have
to know that the truth cannot be ordered. And truth is not our concept. We
cannot organize the truth. Truth exists beyond human powers. For example, if
you say that this is wood, we can see it is wood, we can feel it is wood and
everybody says it is wood, […]

Attitude of seeking Geneva (Switzerland)

Public Program, Geneva (Switzerland), 5 October 1987.

As I told you, these are modern times. And in modern times this en masse-realisation was to take place. That was to happen. In modern times only, when people get frustrated, when they get lost, they don’t know what to do, when they are deceived and cheated, then they start looking for something that is the support. This attitude of seeking was never before so much as it is today. […]

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’s very nice to see you all here assembled in such happy mood and the nature is also very happy with you.

Shri Mahalakshmi Puja: Keep a balance on the Nabhi chakra Oude Stadsfeestzaal, Mechelen (Belgium)

Shri Mahalakshmi Puja. Malines (Belgium), 20 September 1986.

Today we are going to worship the principle of Mahalakshmi in Belgium. Belgium has a speciality that it creates glass bangles for the Mother. That is, the bangles which are used as a beautiful musical accompaniment to the gait, to all the movements of the Goddess. It brings a delicacy in a woman; and gives a consciousness to the man or the men that there are ladies around. […]

Role of Belgium and Holland, Malines/Mechelen (Belgium), 20 September 1986
And in Belgium I must say that the ladies have to be very good. Because Belgium and Holland are left Nabhis, actually I didn’t say but it is so. Not to frighten (you), it’s very important.

Public Program. 1986-09-17

We are living in these modern times which are very eventful In last 50 of 60 years so many things have happened and the churning should bring forth many truths before us First we have to realize that man has separated from each other. The relationships that existed once upon a time are no more to be found today. And on the collective level we are waiting for a shock. God knows what sort of a disaster is going to fall upon us. […]

Spirit is the reflection of God Almighty Within Us Universite Paris Diderot Paris 7, Paris (France)

Public Program Day 2. Medical College, Paris (France), 21 May 1986.
[partial transcript]
I bow to all the seekers of truth.
As it is, at length, Gregoire has told you about the chakras and about the three nadis which are within us. But what is the purpose of the mechanism within us? What is the purpose of getting self-realisation? People have been talking about the self, about the Spirit. But what is it? Spirit is the reflection of God Almighty within us in our heart. […]

A living force of God has to work through you Universite Paris Diderot Paris 7, Paris (France)

Public Program Day 1,
University Paris Diderot, Paris (France), 1986-0520

I bow to all the seekers
of Truth.

In these modern
times, a new wave of
consciousness is working. People are trying to seek, perhaps many of
them do not know what to seek. The atmosphere is filled with this
idea that there are a special category of human beings who are
seekers. And with this demand, there’s a market now established to
give you the truth. […]

Devi Puja Dourdan (France)

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, […]

Sahasrara Puja: Consciousness and Evolution Alpe Motta (Italy)

Sahasrara Puja. Alpe Motta (Italy), 4 May 1986.

Today is a great day for all of us, because it is the sixteenth Sahasrara Day. That in sixteen beats or sixteen movements you reach a higher position in the poem. That it is complete, that Shri Krishna is called as a complete incarnation because He has sixteen petals. This completeness is called as “purna.” So, now we move into another dimension. The first one was where you got your Self-realization. […]

I bow to all the seekers of truth. You are the lovers of truth and you have been seeking in these modern times.

Talk to Sahaja Yogis: Like a Drama (Arrival) Kingsley and Ruth Flint's flat, Strasbourg (France)

Talk to yogis. Strasbourg (France), 9 October 1985.

Like a drama it is that you have to reach a climax point, otherwise … I’m saying it is like a drama that it has to reach a climax point. And I see the game has started now this way creating an expectancy and little suspense, and then ultimately you arrive on the scene. Yesterday it was said that there’s no chance at all, so I wondered, “What’s happening now?” […]

At the spiritual point you become a seeker Auditorium Shell, Brussels (Belgium)

Public Program 1985-0701, Brussels

I bow to all the seekers of truth. First of all, I must apologise for the small place that we have. But it gives me tremendous joy to see so many seekers in Brussels. It is a special category of human beings who are seekers, as it is human beings are the epitome of evolution, but seekers are people gifted with a special awareness who know that there is something beyond. They may not have known about it may be, […]

[All the attempts that have been done to create a trade by Sahaja Yogis for Sahaja Yoga have failed, but the ones that exist before]…Established shop is alright, like she has, but otherwise.

Arrival Talk Founex (Switzerland)

Arrival Talk. Founex (Switzerland), 11 June 1985.

I bow to all the seekers of truth.

Today we have a new generation of people what we call the people who are seekers. These are some special category who are seeking something beyond. They are seeking the truth as they say. But what is the truth? What are you seeking? As I told yesterday in Geneva that whatever you are seeking has to be something sensible. It cannot be something nonsensical, […]

Public Program Day 2, Musée social, Paris, France, 1985

[Introduction to Sahaja Yoga in French by Patrick. Short resume to Shri Mataji about what he said.]
[Talk starts at 23:35 on video.]

I bow to all the seekers of truth.
The day before, I told you, that eventually, one has to understand what a seeker has to find out. He has to find out himself, his own Spirit, the idea of having some sort of a new venture into the style of seeking comes because people want to make money out of you. […]

This is the Last Judgment. You are judged by yourself. Universite Paris Diderot Paris 7, Paris (France)

Ashtami Puja, Eighth day of Navaratri, Meudon, Paris (France), 30 September 1984.

Today is the eighth day of Navaratri, and it is great day for Sahaja Yogis because it is the most important time, period. That is, the seventh centre, we have crossed, and we are on the eighth centre. We need not think about the Goddess what She did on the eighth day, we have to think today what we have to do within ourselves. […]

Whatever is our genuine faith, why doesn’t it manifest in our life? Paris (France)

Public Program. Paris (France), 29 September 1984.

[About the mike] Just have to test it a bit.

I bow to all the seekers of truth. Now, we talk of truth, we have heard about it, and so many of us think that we know the truth. But truth is only known on your central nervous system. Supposing, sitting down in London, I believe that Paris is like this or like that, I do not see the truth. […]

There are thousands of people who are feeling the urge to seek beyond Lausanne (Switzerland)

It’s such a great pleasure to see so many people in Lausanne who are seekers and have come to know, here, about the truth. Can you hear him? Is it all right or muffled? Muffled. Little bit, I think, should be further. Just put it right.

These are special times, we must understand, when there are thousands of people who are feeling the urge to seek beyond. […]

At the human level we try to seek Truth through our mental projection Geneva (Switzerland)

Public Programme Day 1. Geneva (Switzerland), 28 August 1984.

I bow to all the seekers of Truth.

I’m sorry, I could not come yesterday and I hope today we’ll be able to do something for ourselves.

When we talk of Truth, we have to know that at the human level we try to seek Truth through our mental projection or through our emotional understanding. The other day I met the president of the Jungian Society in America and he told Me that he was sitting on a cut trunk of a tree and he just thought that, […]

Guru Puja: The State of Guru Grand Hotel Leysin (Leysin American Schools), Leysin (Switzerland)

Guru Puja, Leysin (Switzerland), 14 July 1984.

I bow to all the sahaja yogis of the world. It is very heartening to see so many of you assembled here to do the Guru Puja.

To worship your Guru in person is regarded as the highest blessing. But in My case it’s a very different combination that I am your Mother and your Guru.

So you can understand how Shri Ganesha worshipped his Mother. You all are created in the same image of Shri Ganesha who worshipped His Mother and then He became the Adi Guru, […]

[Shri Mataji speaks in Marathi]

For your good luck, you should say let us say for your good luck, SoubhAgnya for your good luck. Is given to the ladies, always given to the ladies.

[Translator: … what we do?]

Shri Mataji: … which represents the Mother Earth. So far, whatever we have done is to exhaust the Mother Earth. She has been looking after us, but we have been exhausting Her.

I Bow to all the seekers of Truth

Within us lies the truth, it is said in all the scriptures, where does it lie? Nobody has told so far exactly where it lies.

1983-08-31 Talk to New Sahaja Yogis

[27:57] And once you have found the lamp and have lightened it then you don’t have to use a lamp to see that, do you?  That lamp itself gives light.  So this must be understood logically that now you are not there where you were.  That you are at a different level and accept all the transformations as reality.  And don’t live in the past or in your imagination.  As I have told many a times a that supposing a beggar is made a king, […]

The roots of human beings Geneva (Switzerland)

Public Program day 2. Geneva (Switzerland), 30 August 1983.

I bow to all the seekers of truth. Yesterday we saw the general aspect of Sahaja Yoga and how these modern times are connected to the future and to the past, because if it is a living process of evolution then it is a continuous process intermittent with transformations. But we human beings believe that whatever we achieve through our mental projection is the transformation. For example, […]

Shri Mataji Nirmala Devi talking to the Sahaja yogis during an Entertainment Program, Switzerland

Shri Mataji: And the road …Yogi: Mother, actually this place is colder …I am also impressedShri Mataji: That’s what I say, it’s a fact. And the street which has a cool breeze.

Human consciousness is a product of a living process Geneva (Switzerland)

I bow to all the seekers of truth. Every moment has got a past and a future. Everything has got a history and a future that is going to follow.

Shri Krishna Puja, Tannay (Switzerland), 28 August 1983.
Today we are celebrating here, in this holy land the birthday of Shri Krishna.
Shri Krishna is the ultimate of the fatherhood that I described you before, who came on this Earth and illustrated the ultimate of that.

But in the Kingdom of God, we can say in the Heavens, or even above everything else, resides Sadashiva who does not take incarnations. […]
