Guru Nanaka Jayanti
“…They didn’t talk of Kundalini; that’s the only trouble. And they all, that time they were all fighting. Because of that fighting nature nobody had patience to tell them ‘baba, you don’t fight now’. because when there is fight going on you can’t talk to them. But with Sahaja Yoga.., Sahaja Yoga has given you a complete freedom.”
Hindi: – “there were many true nice saints but nobody ever talked about the Kundalini, […]
Guru Nanaka Jayanti
Makar Sankranti. Pratishtan (India), 2008.
Today is Sankranti. Sankranti means that today something new is going to happen. Kundalini has awakened within you, and you have become a new person compared with what you were before. But on the day of Sankranti, you should know that you have to please the Goddess who is sitting within you. What should you do to make Her happy? You distribute sesame seeds and jaggery. That is for love. To increase the love between each other, […]
Dassehra. Tenth day of Navaratri, Sydney (Australia), 21 October 2007.
Mother looks at yoginis, smiles and says ‘Very happy’.
Please sit comfortably.
Today is the (indistinct) great day , isn’t it (ji) Dassera.
[Yogis organize a microphone for Shri Mataji]
Is it coming?
So today is Dassera, is a very big day in India. They say on this day Ravana was killed. He was the worst enemy of human beings, and he was killed. But whatever it is then, […]
Sashti. Sixth night of Navaratri, Sydney (Australia), 17 October 2007.
Shri Mataji speaks:
This is too small. (speaks in Hindi) You can get a good hall here, very easily. Actually I never knew that there’s a programme otherwise I would have told you.

Come here also, come in, sit here, another one also (talking to people), come forward. There are people who could not sit. Can you go and see if every one is inside?

You can here me there ? All of you? Those who can’t hear raise your hand! [laughter]
All right, […]

I wanted to thank all of you for enjoying this wonderful music from different parts of America, and that shows Sahaja Yoga has a great chance – if it works out this way in America, it will work out everywhere. And it will give the peace and the joy of leading a spiritual life.

It is very nice to see you all again here. I think this is the first Puja that we are having in this place and I hope you are all comfortable and convenient for you to come here.

Adi Shakti Puja, Cabella Ligure, 6 June 2004.
Today’s meeting is very special. It’s a very, very special day also, extremely special and very blissful. The reason is it talks and sings and tells about the born order, born power, the original, the Adi, the primordial and this one is responsible for creating this great universe. Why this has started and how it works out is already you know, I need not talk about that.
But today we have to talk about this Power which is hidden in your hearts by which you can do whatever you like to create a new world, […]
Public Program 2004-04-17
I bow to all the seekers of truth
There are people who are seeking the truth but may be they don’t know how to find it and we don’t know what is the truth is. There are two problems that we don’t know how to find the truth.Now already in our Shastras there everything Granth Sahib everywhere it is written that you have to receive your self knowledge- Atmgyan .You have to have knowledge about yourself but we think we have the knowledge. […]

I thank you all for giving Me this welcome. With such great love and respect you all have given this programme, I don’t know how much I have to thank you all, I don’t understand.

I wanted to thank you all for giving Me such a hearty welcome to Me today. I don’t know what words to use to thank you. […]
2004-03-20 Birthday Felicitations Program: Talk and Debu Chaudhari – Sitar
So many of you have come, and it has given Me the greatest pleasure. I don’t know what is the felicitation you all want to do for, because after all I’m a Mother, and a Mother has to do Her job. There’s no felicitation with it. Just love, love for My children, and that is how i’ve worked and it has worked out.
You can see for yourself how you have learnt to love each other. […]
Mahashivaratri Puja, Pune (India), 15 February 2004
Hindi Talk followed by English Talk
Today we are here to do the Guru’s puja The Guru is praised more than the Deities and the Gods Who is this Guru? In this, which is the most important shakti? The Guru tattwa is the Shiva. The form of the Shiva’s power we should consider as the Guru’s power. Because when we take the powers from the Guru’s shakti, […]
Christmas Puja, Ganapatipule (India), 25 December 2003.
Today is a great day because we are celebrating the birth of Jesus Christ. He was such a great spiritual personality, who had to suffer on the cross. This is what many people don’t understand, that why a man of his calibre, of his standing, of his spirituality, should have to go through so many ordeals in life. It is very easy to understand that he was born in a circumstances which was against him, […]
Diwali Puja. Los Angeles (USA), 9 November 2003.
Today is the great day of Diwali.
That means today is the great day of putting up (?) lights, lights of your heart together to make a greater light for the world to move in a proper direction. It’s a day of great joy, and those who join in this, are spreading also great joy. But the problems are there, as they say, but for us there is no problem because there is no darkness, […]
Navaratri Puja, Birthday of Shri Gauri, Ellenville, New York (USA), 12 October 2003.
Today we are going to celebrate the puja of Gauri. She came on this earth many-a-times, to kill the people who were doing wrong things, who were trying to kill good people. She has done Her level (best) to do that, and today we are celebrating Her birthday.
You all know so much about it, that I need not tell you, but what you have to know is that She came on this earth to save you from all kinds of troubles. […]
(…) children sit here, doesn’t matter. Children could sit here. It’s so nice to come back after such a long time, and whenever I came you always had gathered, in a very big hall we met, and that’s how the Sahaja Yoga started growing. Is very important. What do you, people, from, specially from Germany, Austria, these are the people who were in the war. And now you are in the war with Me! We have to fight, […]
Shri Ganesha Puja, Cabella Ligure, 13 September 2003.
(Shri Mataji invites the children to come and sit on the stage)
Now we are facing little children. They are the ones who are incarnations. They are the ones who are going to lead humanity into some great advancement – the humanity has to be looked after. They are tomorrow’s humanity. And we are today’s. And what are we giving to them for them to follow? What is their aim in life? […]
Guru Puja. Cabella Ligure (Italy), 13 July 2003.
Today’s Puja is a very great Puja for me, because I suddenly find that my granddaughter is missing, and I got upset with it very much. Look at me, supposed to be Adi Shakti, and why should I get so upset about my granddaughter missing. It was just a human nature which I realised all of us have.
If we have some responsibility and we are not there we get upset. […]
After the Adi Shakti Puja, Cabella Ligure, 15 June 2003.
After the short Puja it was sung with great joy the bhajan “Gondari”. In the end, Shri Mataji said:
I am very happy all of you are here singing the song of Gondari. Perhaps you do not know the meaning. That is ‘We are the singers of Shri Mataji’. And these are the songs sung by people who are villagers and they are singing this song that ‘We are singing the song of our Mother, […]
I just want to thank you all from My heart for coming to celebrate this anniversary with your love. I can’t do more than to thank you really how you people have appreciated My humble work. Moreover, it’s a work of just love. Love is the greatest quality of human beings. And if you have developed that then you will forget all other things. Because love has its own reward and the reward is here, […]
Birthday Puja, Nirmal Dham, Delhi (India), 21 March 2003.
(Translated from Hindi)
Eternal blessings from Me to all the Sahaja Yogis. You all have gathered here today, in such a large number, to celebrate My birthday. How should I thank you? I just don’t understand. So many people have come from other countries also. And even from our country, so many people have gathered here. Seeing all this, My heart fills with joy.
I don’t know what extraordinary task I have done that you all have gathered here to celebrate My birthday. […]
Birthday Felicitations. Nirmal Dham, Delhi (India), 20 March 2003.
Talk by Sir C. P. Shrivastava
Madam Mayor, Shri Rahul Bajaj, Shri Debu Chaudhary, honored guests, dear Sahaj Yogis and Sahaj Yoginis
Let me first clarify that we are celebrating only one birthday, and that is birthday of your Mataji. I am, you know statistically about fifteen million people living on this Earth must have been born on twenty-first of March. I’m one of them. Just doesn’t matter whether I’m there or not, […]
Shivaratri Puja, Pune (India), 16 March 2003.
Shri Mataji is silent for about six minutes before speaking.
Today we are going to worship Shri Shiva, Sadashiva. His quality is that He is forgiveness personified. The amount of forgiveness He has, has helped many of us to exist, otherwise this world would have perished, so many would have been finished because you know what is the condition of human beings. They don’t understand what is wrong, what is right. […]
Inauguration speech for the opening of the new Music Academy (transcr. only English part). Vaitarna (India), 1 January 2003.
I’m sorry I spoke in Hindi language, because to talk about My father in any other language is very difficult, though he was a master of English language and he used to read a lot. He had a big library of his own where I also learned English, because my medium of instruction was Marathi. I’d never studied Hindi or English. […]
New Year’s Eve Puja. Music Academy of Vaitarna, Bombay (India), 31 December 2002.
I am very, very happy to see so many of you coming down here for the program. Actually I bought this land at least twenty-five years back and could not do any thing about it, as there were lots of objections and this and that. But then somehow I planned the whole thing & it all worked out. [I am] Happy to see you all here that with all the difficulties, […]
Christmas Puja, Ganapatipule (India), 25 December 2002.
Merry Christmas to you all.
According to Sahaja Yoga, Christ is settled on your Agnya Chakra. His whole life is depicting the qualities of a person who is a realised soul. What He has suggested in His own life is that you should not have any greed or lust. The way these days people are greedy all over the world is really shocking. Right from the childhood, our children also learn to ask for this or ask for that; […]
Diwali Puja. Lake Piru, Los Angeles, (USA) – 3 November 2002.
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. It’s your own, Self is your own, Spirit is your own, but to take to Self is difficult. It’s only your desires, I think, which is being fulfilled. And that’s how you have got your self-realisation. […]
Shri Ganesha Puja, Frankfurt (Germany), 27 September 2002.
It’s so nice to come back after such a long time. And whenever I came, you always had gathered in a very big hall. We met, and that’s how the Sahaja Yoga started growing. It’s very important for you people from specially from Germany, Austria. These are the people who were in the war. And now you are in the war with Me. We have to fight, fight the evil. […]
Talk to Bridegrooms
I’m very happy that you all have decided to marry in Sahaja Yoga, but there are certain responsibilities which you must have. It’s not like other marriages – that today you marry, tomorrow you divorce, then you do this, do that. Nothing of the kind. You are marrying in Sahaja Yoga because we want to strengthen Sahaja Yoga.
You’ll have wife, she’ll look after you, she’ll be kind to you, she’ll be loving you because she is a Sahaja Yogini. […]
Shri Ganesha puja. Cabella Ligure (Italy), 14 September 2002.
Today we have gathered here to worship Shri Ganesha. Shri Ganesha is the deity of innocence. When we are born as children, it is Shri Ganesha who is acting and we are very innocent, and it is such a powerful thing that, with this innocence, children survive under many circumstances. And we love them, because they are innocent. We enjoy them, because they are innocent.
Once we start growing, […]
Shri Kubera Puja. Canajoharie (USA), 18 August 2002.
Today we are going to worship Shri Krishna as a very great personality and you know why He came on this Earth to establish, this is the new form of, not Virat, not Virata, but a form by which this country became so prosperous. And by His advent only He created a beautiful mentality among the people, how to develop this culture with dharma and you had very great leaders, […]
VOA ITV Interview in New Jersey (USA). 1 August 2002.
Interviewer: … also She was promoted even by Bhrigumuni, the ancient astrologer, in Nadi Granth. And that’s what Mataji talks about all the time: how to get Self Realization, how to get the absolute knowledge and the absolute truth.
Sahaja Yoga, as we know, is the spontaneous union of the individual consciousness with the Divine Power through the awakening of our Kundalini which many times remains dormant in our system.
VOA ITV Interview with Sir C.P.
Interviewer: … me Mr. Chandrika Prasad Srivastava, a retired IS officer who’s had a sterling career in the government of India, he’s been the Joint Secretary to the Prime Minister of India in ’64-’66, Chairman of the Shipping Corporation of India, also he was the Secretary General of the International Maritime Organization of the United Nations and has won several accolades. He was knighted by the government of England and he’s won the Padma Bhushan, […]
Guru Purnima Puja, Cabella Ligure (Italy), 24 July 2002.
It’s very interesting the way you found out, today is the real Guru Purnima.The Purnima is the day when the moon is full. I knew this, but for Sahaja Yogis we have to arrange Saturday, Sunday, Monday – Friday, Saturday, Sunday. Whenever it is, wether it is on the date or not, we have to arrange it. So in that case, this time it was a day, […]
2002-07-20 Talk at Evening Program: The Betrayed Prophet (Eve of Guru Puja)
My heart is so full, because in this great drama you have really shown the beauty of Mohammed Sahib; how people have misused and troubled all the world around; and now, they are in trouble. He never wanted that but how human beings misunderstand such a great prophet like Him.
I must congratulate Guido and the whole of you for acting so well and what a drama it was! […]
Easter Puja. Istanbul (Turkey), 21 April 2002.
Today we have come here to worship Jesus Christ and His Mother.
It’s such a coincidence that the Mother of Christ came and stayed in Turkey. Isn’t it surprising that She should come here after the crucifixion of Christ and stayed here. I wonder if He also came with Her later on? But they say then He went to Kashmir and She was also there. Quite possible, on their way, […]
Doctor’s conference at AIIMS, New Delhi (India). 2 April 2002.
I bow to all the seekers of truth.
Speaking before the doctors I think of My college days, while I was also studying medicine but luckily or unluckily our college stopped completely, in Lahore and I had to give up My studies. Not that I had no faith in this western education of medicine but it was a good chance by connecting this to that and understanding what is missing in the western medical education. […]
Puplic Program. New Delhi (India) 24 March 2002.
[NOTE] The transcript DOES NOT MATCH the video.
I pay my respect to the seekers of truth who have gathered here today.
What is basically lacking everywhere is the Love. All persons take it as a mere word or expression. Love basically is the potential power within us. We do experience or feels it when we look at our Mother. What I am trying to say is that it is the Spirit enlightenment with in oneself. […]
Talk on Birthday Felicitations. Delhi (India). 23 March 2002
This felicitation function is little embarrassing for Me because I was born as a very simple person and I have been an extremely simple person. I don’t understand money. I don’t understand hatred. I don’t understand greed. I’m so simple about it. Despite that, you people came and got your Realization. It’s your own achievement. It’s your own desires that you have achieved. I find so many children nowadays born as realized souls. […]
Puja for the 79th Birthday, Delhi (India), 21 March 2002.
[Scanned from DCB Translation from Hindi to English]
I am seeing the magnitude of love. How it has spread all over! To how many people? No one knows. But I have understood its Philosophy.
Could there be any Philosophy of love? Love has no Philosophy.
Like a huge expanse l.ove spreads all over.
quarrel with them. You are Sahaja Yogis. There should be no other feeling in your heart but love. […]
Shivaratri Puja, Pune (India), 17 March 2002.
Tonight we have gathered here to do Shri Shiva Puja. Those people who have a clean heart can only do Shiva Puja. Those whose heart is not clean cannot do Shiva Puja. It’s a simple principle of Shri Shivaratri.
As you have seen yesterday, we have snakes, or, these are horrible snakes guiding behind the Shiva Linga. The significance is this – those who are clean in heart, who are full of love for others, […]
New Year’s Eve Puja, Kalwe (India), 31 December 2001.
(translation from Hindi)
Today I got late and it is the power of your love which has brought Me here. Your Mother’s health is little disturbed and the desire is very strong and things are working out because of that. I want that your power of desire should get stronger, too. You should think for yourself what you have done in this regard. You should introspect and see that what hard work have you done for it. […]
Christmas Puja, Ganapatipule (India), 25 December 2001.
Nice to see so many Sahaja Yogis coming here during the Christmas Puja. Christianity has spread all over the world, and there are so many so-called ‘Christians’ who say they follow Christ – I don’t know from which angle!
Christ was the embodiment of Param Chaitanya, He was Omkara. He was Shri Ganesha. And those who follow Him have to be very different people. But it always happens in every religion that they go at random into the opposite direction, […]
Advice to yogis. Hong Kong, 18 December 2001.
I am so happy to hear all of you singing those… songs which are sung all over the world. Now you have become part and parcel of that whole. We have Sahaja Yogis everywhere. In America I was surprised to find that 300 Sahaja Yogis were saved in this crisis. That they had not a single Sahaja Yogi was lost. It is remarkable that how some of them were late, […]
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. […]
Navaratri Puja. Loutraki (Greece), 21 October 2001.
Today we have gathered here to do the Devi Puja. This Puja was performed many a times and the Devi was requested by the Devas to save them from the tyranny of devilish people. Today I feel the same way, that we are now in the grip of a funny (strange) situation; that there are people who are themselves devils, I think, – and also (people who are) mesmerised by them – who are trying to do something which they should never have done. […]
Marriages. Cabella (Italy), 23 September 2001.
Talk to brides
You are going to marry. I am going to just .. (the microphone is adjusted) .. and with full understanding.
It’s very important to understand your role in Sahaja Yoga as married women. We have had very funny types of women who got married because they wanted to marry, and they saw to it that the marriage is not successful. And they have been of such a trouble to Me that I don’t understand that before marriage why don’t they see that what they have to do. […]
Shri Ganesha Puja, Cabella Ligure, 22 September 2001.
Today we have assembled here to worship Shri Ganesha. Shri Ganesha who is the Lord of Innocence. He is the ocean of innocence. And though’ he is such a young, little boy, he can fight the whole world, he can destroy all the negativity. That’s the sign of innocence.
There have been stories that children who have fallen from a very great height were completely saved, nothing happened to them. […]
Shri Mataji Nirmala Devi
18th September 2001
To Honourable George W. Bush
President of the United States of America
Dear Mr President
I wanted to write to you earlier, but I felt that you were too busy with the crisis in your great country. All the while I have been watching you and your activities through television. I had conveyed to you earlier that I had a vision about you – it was that you would be the one chosen to destroy the evil of terrorism all over the world and completely redeem the world from the agony of satanic forces. […]
