Puja Ealing Ashram, London (United Kingdom)

Puja in Ealing Ashram, London (UK) 30th August 2002
I don’t know what to say! (laughter)
You are living in this house now and it was very nice because Sahaja Yogis were living here and they enjoyed my stay here. But we have to change and progress – that’s the point is. With every change you must progress otherwise it has no meaning, the change has no meaning.
So now they are thinking that I should now be in the house here. […]

I bow to all the seekers of truth. In these modern times it was prophesized that many, many people will be seeking the truth and you can see the proof of that. Many people will be seeking the truth because they will be fed up with the untruth, also they may find out that lot of superficial stuff is there, which is not satisfying at all.

Liberty Radio Interview. London (UK), 12 July 1999.
MODERATOR: (speaking clearly and enthusiastically) Shri Mataji Nirmala Devi, recognized world-wide for her pioneering work in awakening the natural healing energy that lies within every human being. Apparantly it’s called the Kundalini and we’ll be awakening yours hopefully this hour. Shri Mataji, that actually means Mother, was on GM TV [for a popular morning TV show] only last week and the switchboards were actually bombarded with calls. We wonder if Shri Mataji or Mother will have the same effect here today. […]

Public Program Royal Albert Hall, London (United Kingdom)

Public Program. Royal Albert Hall, London (UK), 10 July 1999.
At the very outset one has to know what is the Truth, what are we seeking. It’s quite clear that we do not know that. That’s why we run after things which are false, which are more attractive, but basically they are very dangerous, very dangerous. And that has been happening – I’m sorry to say – in every country that people are just trying to mislead all the seekers who are truthful, […]

Press Conference London Television Centre, London (United Kingdom)

Press Conference. London (UK), 8 July 1999.
I bow to all the seekers of truth.
First of all, it’s important to know what the truth is. You find so many people are seeking the truth, but they don’t know what to find and that’s how they are twisted around, taken to some sort of a false rites. It’s important first of all to know what is the truth that we are seeking. The truth is, if I tell you, […]

I bow to all the seekers of truth. So many of you have already found out what is the truth, truth about yourself, that you are not this body, this mind, these emotions, this ego, conditionings, but you are the pure Spirit.

Public Program, Myths are unreal Royal Albert Hall, London (United Kingdom)

Public Program. Royal Albert Hall, London (UK), 28 June 1996.
I bow to all the seekers of truth. It has to be understood that truth what we know through our mental capacity is not the truth, because mind itself is a myth. We have created it. As we have created computers. we have created our myth also through our conditioning and through our ego. Beyond it is the reality. So if you have to know the absolute truth something has to happen.

Advice, Picnic Richmond Park, London (United Kingdom)

Advice at yogis. Richmond Park, London (UK), 25 June 1995.
In the nature one goes absolutely thoughtless. For me it is such a pleasure to meet you all here under the trees. There is a beautiful atmosphere created by these trees. How much they work hard for us – think about that. All is built-in, in them, built in to produce this chlorophyll, this greenery. All that is built in, in them. But see how collective they are. […]

Hello! [Taps mic]  Alright?
“I bow to all the seekers of truth”

Public Program. Royal Albert Hall, London (UK), 24 June 1993.
Shri Mataji: It’s all right.
I bow to all the seekers of truth.
At the very outset we have to know that truth is what it is. We cannot change it, we cannot conceptualize it, with this human awareness. We have to be in another state where we can understand it, know it, on our central nervous system. Whatever we have achieved in our evolutionary process we can feel it on our central nervous system. […]

Public Program Day 2 Royal Albert Hall, London (United Kingdom)

Public Program Day 2, Royal Albert Hall, London (UK) June 12th 1992
I bow to all the seekers of truth.
I’ve already told you that truth is what it is, we cannot change it, we cannot conceptualise it. With this human perspective, we cannot know it. If this is the case, then we have to understand that in our evolutionary process that something more has to happen. Because as we see, take case of religions. You may be Christian, […]

Public Program Day 1 Royal Albert Hall, London (United Kingdom)

Public Program. Royal Albert Hall, London (UK), 11 June 1992.
I bow to all the seekers of truth. At the very outset we have to know that truth is what it is. We cannot change it. We cannot conceptualize it. We have to know it. For example, today science has become our God. But you can’t know truth through science. It may solve some problems, one by one, but it is not conclusive. It doesn’t reach you anywhere. […]

Shri Buddha Puja, The Search for the Absolute Shudy Camps Park, Shudy Camps (United Kingdom)

Shri Buddha Puja. Shudy Camps, near Cambridge (England). 31 May 1992.
Today we have assembled here to do Shri Buddha Puja. I don’t know how many of you have read of Buddha’s life, and how ultimately He achieved His enlightenment.

Public Program Hammersmith Town Hall, London (United Kingdom)

Public Program. Hammersmith Town Hall, London (UK), 14 September 1990.
I bow to all the seekers of truth.
At the very outset we have to know that truth is what it is. We cannot organize it, we cannot mold it. Also we cannot know it at the stage when we are human beings, with human awareness we cannot know it. So we have to become a super human being, a higher personality. What is said that you have to be the Spirit, […]

Shri Krishna Puja Hallowtree Scout Campsite, Ipswich (United Kingdom)

Shri Krishna Puja. (UK), 19 August 1990.
We have arranged this Puja specially in England so that many more can come and work out the awakening of Shri Krishna.
Gita was written long time back, and it has been translated into so many languages, and lots of commentaries and criticism has been there. So this bookish knowledge of Gita has ruined many people, and even today you find there are many people who are selling the books of Gita all over and making it into a bookish knowledge. […]

Pre-Shri Krishna Puja Talk and 2nd Evening Talk Hallowtree Scout Campsite, Ipswich (United Kingdom)

Evening before Shri Krishna Puja. Ipswich (UK), 17 August 1990.
On the day of Sri Krishna Puja, I’m going to tell you about Sri Krishna. But before that, we should know how the whole thing evolved from Sri Vishnu’s evolutionary process. So, as you know there were ten Avataras, ten incarnations of Sri Vishnu. Now Vishnu is the one which grows to be the Virat, to be the macrocosm as they call it, and this Vishnu principle is very well established within us. […]

Easter Puja, You Have To Grow Vertically Eastbourne (United Kingdom)

Easter Puja. Eastbourne (UK), 22 April 1990.
Today we are here to worship the resurrection of Christ and also to thank Him for giving us an ideal life of a saint who has to work for the benevolence of the whole world.
We talk of Christ, we sing of Shri Ganesha, we say we believe in Him, specially Sahaja Yogis feel that He is the eldest brother that they have and a tremendous surrender I find among Western Sahaja Yogis specially for Christ because they were born in Christian religion perhaps maybe or maybe that they found Christ’s life a very special one. […]

Talk, Eve Of Easter Puja Eastbourne (United Kingdom)

Evening before Easter Puja. Eastbourne (UK), 21 April 1990.
…in a very big way, maybe it will be difficult for us to really balance it out, but when we move horizontally we must also know that we have to move vertically. Otherwise what will happen, that we’ll lose in quality. Quantity may be quite a lot, but we’ll lack in quality. And if the quality goes down then you will see many will fritter away. So we have to look after our vertical ascent, […]

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? […]

Shri Krishna Puja Saffron Walden (United Kingdom)

Shri Krishna Puja. Saffron Walden (England), 14 August 1989.
Today we have gathered here to worship Shri Krishna’s incarnation. As you know that Shri Krishna is the incarnation of Narayana, of Shri Vishnu. So in every incarnation they carry all their qualities, all their powers and all their nature with them. So when He incarnated He had all the qualities of Narayana and then that of Rama, but every incarnation tries to rectify whatever in their previous life has been misunderstood and have been carried to the extremes.

Public Program Day 2, First Know thyself Porchester Hall, London (United Kingdom)

Public Program, Porchester Hall, London (UK), 1 August 1989.
I bow to all the seekers of truth.
At the very outset we have to understand that truth is what it is. We cannot conceptualize it. We cannot organize it. And we cannot use it for our own purposes. Moreover, with the blinkers on both the sides like a horse, with all our conditionings, we cannot find the truth. We have to be free people. We have to be open minded people, […]

Shri Hanumana Puja, You Are All Angels Butlins Grand Hotel, Margate (United Kingdom)

Shri Hanumana Puja. Margate (UK), 23 April 1989.
It is such a joy today, and the whole atmosphere seems to be bubbling with it, as if the angels are singing.  And the speciality of Hanumana was that He was an angel. Angels are born like angels.  They are angels, and they are not human beings.  They’re born with the angelic qualities. But now, you all have become angels from the human beings. It’s a very great achievement of Sahaja Yoga. […]

Today we are here, all of us, to celebrate the Diwali, that is dipavali, meaning the rows of lights.
In the darkness of Kali Yuga when you find from every place confusion of the worst type creating the darkness which cannot be penetrate into, and which looks like a solid mountain around us, and which can never be covered, as we feel, by the grace of God. And even with the grace of God it would never melt. […]
