I wish you a very, very happy Diwali.
To see all of you here, is itself such a joy for me that you all have taken to Sahaja Yoga in such a beautiful way.

Diwali Puja, Soldiers of Divine Love Los Angeles (United States)

Diwali Puja. Lake Piru, near Los Angeles, California (USA) 18 November 2001.
It’s a very, very great day today, I should say, where the evil has been suppressed. [big applause]
The evil that spreads its power all over is only because of two factors: one is that you are not knowledgeable; you are still blind, and you follow things which are not right but you think are powerful. This illusion creates not only problems, but absolute destruction. […]

Today we have gathered here to worship
Shri Krishna, the One who was Virat, who fought all kinds of evil without entering into the arena. Shri Krishna’s life, in itself, is a very beautiful, creative and loving thing, but to understand Him, it is not easy.

Talk to Sahaja Yogis Los Angeles Ashram, Los Angeles (United States)

Talk at Los Angeles Ashram. Los Angeles (USA) 3 December 2000.
I’ve been here for now quite some time, I think. And, I want to really tell you something important that Los Angeles is a very, very important area.

What is the reason for that? […]

Sahaja Yogis: Yes.
Shri Mataji: All right. It’s all right now.
I selected this place suddenly from a very thick newspaper, American newspaper. […]

Follow Up to VIP Conference New York City (United States)

Public Program, Follow Up to VIP Conference. New York (USA), 16 June 1999.
I bow to all the seekers of truth. There is so much seeking, people are trying to seek the truth. Perhaps they don’t know, what does that mean. It is unknown, that particular aim, but you know that there’s something is missing in life. Why are we in trouble? Why all these problems? After all, our Creator has created us, and why are we faced with all kinds of turmoil , […]

Shri Krishna Puja, Freedom Without Wisdom Is Dangerous New York City (United States)

Shri Krishna Puja. New York (USA), 8 June 1997
Today we have decided to have Shri Krishna Puja in the land of Shri Krishna.
Though this is the land of Shri Krishna, people ask Me why the people are not spiritual. How is it they get entangled into different types of seekings which are not leading to truth? Why is it the people in America are not so alert as to recognize what is the truth and what they have to find? […]

Evening Program, Eve of Shri Krishna Puja New York City (United States)

Day before Shri Krishna Puja, New Jersey (USA), 7 June 1997.
Tomorrow I’m going to tell you about it, but today, I would say, music, dancing, art – every kind of creativity will definitely bring forth the spiritual aspect of American’s life. They have to come to this. Otherwise it’s not going to be appreciated, it won’t be an appeal, people won’t like such music. They’ll try some tricks otherwise – you know that in this country we have all kinds of people, […]
