Talk to Sahaja Yogis from Africa Swiss Hotel, Istanbul (Turkey)

1002-0423 Talk to Sahaja Yogis from Africa, Istanbul,
It should not come to your people because you live with the nature and nature is not corrupted. Every leaf which is on a tree receives the sunshine; every leaf is different in the world and they are well organized in such a manner that all of them receive the sunlight. But in corruption, one wants to have all and everything. And then, he doesn’t know what the joy in giving to others is. […]

Public Program Day 2 Tunis (Tunisia)

Public Program, Tunis (Tunisia), 12 November 1994.
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. Whatever I’m going to tell you also now, you should not take it for granted blindfolded. It has already caused us so much trouble all over the world by blind faith. But I would request you to treat my lecture as a hypothesis. […]

Public Program, Spiritual Traditions Hyatt Regency Paris Étoile, Paris (France)

Public Program “Spiritual Traditions” Paris (France), 12 July 1993.
I bow to all the seekers of truth. At the very outset, we have to know that truth is what it is. We cannot conceptualize it, we cannot change it, we cannot transform it. We have to feel the truth. At this human level, we do not know the absolute truth, that’s why there are all kinds of different opinions about everything. Absolute truth is for everyone the same. […]

I bow to all the seekers of truth. (Why don’t you sit here, it’ll be better, they are all trying to see your faces, sit here). Alright, you all can see him now.

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. And she paid a lot of money and what she got is a body which shakes in a very funny way all the time and she cannot stand even. […]

Public Program Day 2, You develop a balance in life Paris Marriott Rive Gauche Hotel, Paris (France)

Public Program. 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, and she is our mother. […]

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
have light, a particular statement of mind or maybe something like
that. Because one lady came and asked Me: “How do you say that
Hitler was the disciple of Dalai Lama?” […]

Public Program, Paris (France), 2 November 1987.
I bow to all the seekers of truth.
At the very outset, I apologize for being late because you know my plane could not leave London somehow. But that shows that you people have real patience, and you want to know the truth. One has to know that truth is what it is. You can not have a concept about truth. Truth is reality which is beyond human concept and is beyond human endeavour. […]

<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, […]

Shri Krishna Puja, The 16 000 Powers of Shri Krishna Saint-Quentin-en-Yvelines (France)

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. […]

Talk to Sahaja Yogis the day before Shri Krishna Puja.
It’s very nice to see you all here assembled in such happy mood and the nature is also very happy with you.
I’ve tried to learn French but I think it’s a very difficult language.
When I came first to France they told me, Mother you should never say that you are a happy joyous person. I think I practised to myself — Now the idea was that, […]

Shri Mahalakshmi Puja 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. […]

Talk to Sahaja Yogis, The Role of Belgium and Holland Trees and Willy Maes's House, Mechelen (Belgium)

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.
And in left Nabhi there are two very important organs are. The one is the spleen and another is the one, what you call that, which makes the sugar of the – [Gregoire, […]

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. […]

Public Program. 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. […]

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, […]

Sahastrara Puja, Consciousness and Evolution Alpe Motta (Italy)

Sahastrara Puja. Alpe Motta (Italy), 4 May 1986.
Today is a great day for all of us, because it is the sixteenth Sahastrara 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. It is a special category of human beings who are seeking, beyond materialism, beyond power, beyond emotional enterprises, because the times are such that we have reached the epitome of our evolution and the breakthrough has to be found.

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?” […]

Monday, July 1st, 1985
[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.
So everybody must take up a job and should go on working on his job, not to change, it’s ego, absolutely ego that: “I’ve given up my job.” It’s ego, 100% it’s ego. […]

Arrival Speech Founex (Switzerland)

Arrival Speech. 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, […]

[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. […]

Public Program Day 1 Universite Paris Diderot Paris 7, Paris (France)

1985-04-22 Public Program, Paris

I bow to all the seekers of truth. These are exceptional times. There are thousands and thousands people born on this earth who have been seeking the truth for many lives. It is a very special category of personality. As a result of this, people started the seeking in various ways of the unknown. But whatever is unknown is not the truth. This is the problem in the West, that we are not knowledgeable about the roots on which we stand. […]

Public Programme 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, […]

Public Program Société industrielle de Mulhouse, Mulhouse (France)

1983-09-01 Public Program, France
[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. So within us is also placed the representative of that Mother Earth in the triangular bone or sacrum. Or we can say that this bone represents the Mother Earth and the energy within us, that represents the Holy Ghost. […]

Public Program Day 3 Geneva (Switzerland)

Public Program Day 3, Geneva, Switzerland, 31.08.1983

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. You must have realized from Armour’s lecture that he is Swiss, and he has become such an expert on Kundalini Yoga. There are many young people, very young, who come to Sahaja Yoga, and within a month, […]

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, […]

Public Program Day 2 Geneva (Switzerland)

Public Program. 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, when we started to establish our kingdoms, […]

Public Program Day 1 Geneva (Switzerland)

Public Program Day 1, 1983-08-29, Geneva
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. Today we are here at this moment and we have to look at every problem in relation to this time. The understanding of consciousness has to be understood in all its aspect, and at this period of complete integration it is easy to relate it to every movement of our mind. […]

Shri Krishna Puja, The Ultimate Of The Fatherhood Tannay Ashram, Tannay (Switzerland)

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. So on this Earth, the highest fatherhood is Shri Krishna’s awareness. But in the Kingdom of God, we can say in Heavens, or even above everything else, resides Sadashiva who does not take incarnations. […]

Shri Mataji: You want to speak through… It’s rather hot.
Sahaja Yogini: Should I come to the other side?
Shri Mataji: I think so. Better be here.
[Yogini translates into Italian or French]

Public Program Day 1, Joy has no duality Société d'Encouragement pour l'Industrie Nationale, Paris (France)

Public Program, Paris (France), 16 June 1983.
I bow to all the seekers of truth. Since ancient times man has been searching the truth. He tried to search the truth in various forms of happiness and he discarded many a times because he found that happiness was not permanent. For a short time he felt happy with something and then he found it also gave him great unhappiness. Like a lady, she had no child so she used to weep and cry and she had a child who later on disowned her. […]

Public Program, History of Spiritual Seeking Lausanne (Switzerland)

Public Program. Lausanne (Switzerland), 26 August 1982.
I bow to all the seekers of truth and love. There has been a great talk about truth, love and bliss so far in the history of spirituality of human beings. But it is so surprising for an outsider to see that all these religions have been separated from each other and it is impossible for them to find any common points between themselves.
If truth is one, God is one and love is the same thing, […]
