Public Program. Florence (Firenze) (Italy), 1992-0423.
I bow to all the seekers of truth. At the very outset, I have to tell you that truth is what it is. We cannot conceptualise it. We cannot know it through the flight of our imagination. Unfortunately, we cannot also know at this human level, human awareness. Because it is subtler than human awareness. Within all of you there is divinity. But because of ignorance, you do not know it.

“About Divine Love”. Rome ashram (Pichini) (Italy), 22 February 1991.
You are singing so beautifully. It seems your heart has opened after this Puja very much and you’re singing like small children now. So sort of, all the conditionings we have had, all the ego also there, it seems now you have become very pure all these problems have gone away and you are enjoying yourselves. This is the best way, when we love ourselves, we know ourselves we become love. […]
I bow to all the seekers of truth.
You are here to feel the truth. And not to just conceptualize it
Now, there’s a question yesterday, people asked that what is the
difference between Sahaja Yoga and other Yogas. All these yogas have
been written down by a saint called Patanjali, long time back. And he
called it Ashtanga Yoga, with eight facets. He existed a thousand
years back and that time we have a system in which the students went
into the university to study under some enlightened soul, […]
Shri Bhairavanath puja. Garlate, Milan (Italy), 6 August 1989.
Today we have gathered here to do puja to Bhairavanath. I think we have not understood the significance of Bhairavanath who runs up and down on the Ida Nadi. Ida Nadi is the nadi of Chandrama, is of the moon. So this is a channel for us to cool down. So the work of Bhairavanathji is to cool us down.
For example, people have a hot temper with their ego, […]
“Revolution of Love”, Public Program. Rome (Italy), 26 October 1987.
I bow to all the seekers of love and joy.
When we talk of love and joy we have to know that it comes from reality, from the truth. Anything that is false or unreal cannot give you eternal joy. But truth is what it is. You cannot say with your own intelligence, “This is truth and this is not truth.” Everybody when they see the truth has to be the same. […]
“The light of love”, Evening before Diwali Puja, Lake of Como (Italy), 24 Ottobre 1987.
Today we have come here to celebrate a great festival of Deepavali, meaning the rows of lights, or the Festival of Lights. It was to celebrate the coronation of Shri Rama also, that is to say symbolically to celebrate the establishment of a kingdom which has a benevolent administration.
Today I find all of you here as the lights sitting before Me and with these lights I feel the Deepavali really celebrated; […]
Diwali Puja, Tivoli, Rome, 17 November 1985.
Today we have assembled here to celebrate the Diwali, the Deepavali. Actually, only after Sahaja Yoga started, the real Diwali is taking shape. We had many beautiful lamps, and we had lot of oil to burn, but there was no spark, to enlighten the deepas. And the wick, as you call it – is called as bati in Hindi language- is like your Kundalini, so the Kundalini had to meet the spark. […]
Evening before Diwali, Tivoli, 16 November 1985.
You see only I am understanding and we are understanding from Maharashtra and this is to be done by many people so it’s different type.
But a here they are saying that you should surrender to the Mother, that you have been to Kolhapur to the temple of Mahalakshmi. And you know the Mahalakshmi is the central path of Sushumna and there they go and pray to the Kundalini Ambe. […]
Public Program. Rome (Italy), 21 May 1985.
The main thing is to get your Realization. No one can guarantee it. As it is a living process so it has to work out. And that you should get that Realization is the main point. To get the Realization I would say if some people want to come on the stage can come also. If there are people sitting on the ground are in difficulties can come on the stage. […]
Interview, Press Conference, Rome (Italy), 18 May 1985.
Shri Mataji: And secondly, once they feel the experience of the Spirit, they will start cleansing themselves, their own centres.
And this is how the modern Sahaja Yoga has evolved out of the old one which was only individualistic and was given to only people who were willing to go through any kind of tests and any kind of disciplining. But nowadays, best is to have it this way. […]
Public Programme, Milan, 17 September 1984.
I bow to all the seekers of truth. It gives Me tremendous pleasure to be among the people of Milan, which means the middle, the middle path. The people who are in the middle path are the best suited for their ascent because those who go to extremes go away from reality. But those who lead a moderate life, a balanced life, a sensible life are very well suited for their ascent. […]
Shri Ekadasha Rudra Puja. Faggeto Lario, Como (Italy), 16 September 1984.
Today, we are doing a special type of puja which is performed in the glory of Ekadasha Rudra.
Rudra is the destructive power of Shiva, of the Spirit. Now one power, which is His nature, is forgiveness.
He forgives, because we are human beings, we commit mistakes, we do wrong things, we get tempted, our attention is disturbed – so he forgives us. He also forgives us when we spoil our chastity, […]
Shri Ganesha puja. Tivoli (Italy) 11th September 1983.
Today we are celebrating the Birthday of Shri Ganesha, because it is a very important thing for all of us that we should celebrate His Birthday; and yesterday we did the Havana. But yesterday we had many new people so I could not talk to you very clearly about Shri Ganesha’s deeper manifestations. You know that He resides within us.[Shri Mataji speaks in Hindi]We have a very great asset within us that we know about Shri Ganesha, […]
Third Public Program, “Seekers of Joy”. Rome (Italy), 10 September 1983.
I bow to all the seekers of joy. I’ve had many, many questions from the last lecture. And gradually in my own lecture you will find, I have tried to answer some of them. But only possible to divert all my today’s lecture on those, because I want to tell you about the spirit. It seems there is someone who is a learned man about Indian philosophy and I was happy to know that he has also studied that. […]
Second Public Program, “Talk about Christ”. Rome (Italy), 9 September 1983.
I bow to all the seekers of reality. To know the reality is only possible if you’re connected with your spirit. Without that, whatever you know is all on human level.
Now, somebody asked Me a question, that if you just say, “’Hail Mary’ or if you say Lord’s Prayer, then will it not also allow the plants to grow?” Now it is our experience that it did not do anything by saying, […]
Public Program. Rome (Italy), 8 September 1983.
I bow to all the seekers of truth.
Today is a great auspicious day where I’m here on the birthday of Mother Mary, but today I am going to talk to you about reality and about truth. Whatever is the truth is to be known through the light of your Spirit.
You can see in this world, in these modern times, we have developed so many sorts of things which proclaim that they know the truth. […]
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, […]
Bologna Public Program
bow to all the seekers of truth.
truth is what it is. We cannot change it, we cannot describe it, we
cannot conceptualise it. Whatever I am going to tell you, you are
not to believe me blindfolded, but you must keep your mind open like
a scientist. And treat my speech as hypotheses, and if it is proved
then you must accept as honest people. For it is for your individual
