Public Programme in Hotel Krasnapolski, Amsterdam, 9th October 1987
I bow to all the seekers of truth.
As I have been telling before, we cannot conceive the idea of truth. It cannot be a conception of human beings. It has to be felt on your central nervous system. As you can see me with your eyes and can feel me, you should be able to feel the truth. There are many wrong ideas prevalent about the truth. […]

Interview with a journalist. Kolkata (India), 14 October 1986.
Interviewer: [UNCLEAR] has the root connection of the Patanjali yoga?
Shri Mataji : Of course. I mean it’s the ancient thing. No doubt. Patanjali used the same thing.

So that is the but the time has come. […]
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. […]
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, Hotel “De Gouden Wieken”, The Hague, Holland, 16th September 1986
In these days of turmoil and chaos, we feel we are waiting for some sort of a big shock and maybe that our last days will appear in our life time. When we think only from the human limitations, this is quite justified. But we are not created by ourselves, nor have we become human beings by ourselves. From amoeba to this stage we have come, […]

Today in the land of Shri Krishna we are celebrating the birthday of Shri Ganesha.

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. […]
“Ego and its consequences,” Talk to yogis. New Jersey (USA), 27 October 1985.
Nice, relaxed eh? Relaxed, with blessings. Everyone cleared out, I think.
And no more one more thing, I must say it last, I’ve said it before but I have not said it here, no one is going to say that “bhoot did it” because such a person will be sent away to the bhoot [unclear: clan? Or clap] not to Sahaja Yoga, don’t put your responsibility on the bhoots, […]
Shri Ganesha Puja. Brighton (UK), 4 August 1985.
Today we have gathered here on the right occasion and very auspicious day to worship Shri Ganesha. Shri Ganesha is the first Deity that was created so that the whole Universe is filled with auspiciousness, with peace, bliss, and spirituality. He is the source. He’s the source of spirituality.

Interview journalist; “Het Binnenhof” Newspaper, Overvoorde, The Hague, Holland, 4th July 1985
Shri Mataji: The man who was here. He has been to all these fake gurus. He has seen all that nonsense. He has seen everything. It is very easy for him to see me now, because you see if you have not been to all these then you start… you cannot understand it so well. So that’s a very big point about it.
G: He said there is a book called Spiritual Superman. […]

I bow to all the seekers of truth.
I’m very sorry for being late today because they miscalculated the time that it will take to reach this place.
We are talking about truth. Truth that we know of cannot be conceptualised, cannot be mentally understood. We have to know that truth is beyond mental conception. If we believe that this piece is hot, […]

Shri Krishna Puja. Nasik (India), 19 January 1985.
Yesterday, in the lecture, I gave a new announcement about Sahaja Yoga. But the whole lecture was in Marathi language and before it is translated I would like to tell you what was my announcement.
There was a question that, in America and in England, no trust which is not a religion can be registered. Of course, Sahaja Yoga is the religion, no doubt, is the universal religion, […]

He is the giver of wisdom, […]
CBC Radio Interview “The Planet”
Presenter: [Missing part] come to Vancouver. But unlike some others this one is not after your money. As a matter of fact, She brands those gurus or teachers that are after your money as fakes. Shri Mataji Devi lives in London with Her husband, the United Nations diplomat. As a child in India She knew She was different, and Her character trait Mahatma Gandhi also recognized when he asked Her to stay and worked with him. […]
Seminar in Santa Cruz, California (USA). 1 October 1983.
I am really enamoured to see so many of my children. I have been able to find them back. It’s such a great thing to see them after such a long time. While I came here 10 years back and none of them could feel the importance of Mother’s love, and now such a tremendous thing has happened that it has worked, and that people are feeling that great thing called the subtle energy of Mother’s love. […]
Mother Earth and Mahalakshmi Puja, Surbiton Ashram (England), 21 August 1983.

Sahaja Yoghin: …of India, in the Constituent Assembly of India. Mataji, before She took up this message of spreading Hindu philosophy and Hindu thoughts, She was married in a very intellectually, prominent family and She was married to Shri C.P. Shrivastava.

Public Programme. Sydney (Australia), 18 March 1983.
To all the seekers of truth I bow I must say Dr. Warren has done a good job. Perhaps you don’t understand that the situation is quite different in the western countries. I don’t have to have any introduction in India, nor anybody has to give any apologies all the time, you see trying to convince getting this that into the whole argument to prove that I’m the truth and that I’m genuine, […]
Public Program. Sydney (Australia), 17 March 1983.
To all the seekers of truth, I bow. Warren has said something today which I’ve been trying to avoid all these years because I thought it was not advisable at this time to talk so directly to human beings about it. Because as soon as somebody says such a thing a snake called ego comes up or else people try to harm the cause. They don’t want to hear about it. […]
Public Program. Sydney (Australia), 15 March 1983.
But before we come to right conclusion about our seeking, we have to understand that truth is not a mental action.
If your mind says that “this is this”, it need not be that. It is our everyday experience in life, that mentally, when we try to establish something, we find after sometime, that we have not been absolutely correct about it.
Whatever is known to us is already there. […]
Workshop in Perth (Australia), 2 March 1983.
Sahaja Yogi: God the father, God the mother and if she recognizes you as God the mother is Sai Baba, this fellow in India God the father?

Public Program in Dalkeith. Perth (Australia), 2 March 1983.
…the Hindu Scriptures, the experiences described in more detail than in Christian Scriptures. And we are told that you should be able to feel vibrations emitting from the crown of your head once you have the awakening, like a cool wind, and you should also feel them on your hands. And in Muslim Scriptures it’s described as the Ruh. And Mohammed said, “I believe that at this time people would become enlightened and their hands would speak”. […]
Shri Ganesha Puja. Perth (Australia), 1 March 1983.
I think it is the quality of wisdom which is still manifesting in many Australians, which many have lost because they have taken to the gross side of materialism. Shri Ganesha is the tremendous purifying power, because it cannot be contaminated by anyone, whatever you may try, it cannot be contaminated. Only thing is, it may recede back, it may not manifest, but whatever it is, it is in its Absolute Form. […]
Sahasrara Chakra. Hanuman Road, public program in New Delhi (India), 4 February 1983.
Today is the last day in this pendal and today I’ll be telling you about the last centre of Sahasrara. They are all coming. If I come late it is better, I think [Laughing]. Still I was quite late I was thinking. Do you think this is needed on the eyes so much or are you not getting my picture just? This one if you could little bit push it the other way. […]
Shri Saraswati Puja, Dhulia (India), Sankranti day, 14 January 1983.
With love all kinds of creative action takes place. You see how Raulbai has love for Me, and in this place you all also got new idea of creating a beautiful thing. And as love will increase, your creativity will develop. So the basis of all creativity of Saraswati is love. If there is no love there is no creativity.
It is even in the deeper sense, […]
Short Conversation on Marriages, India, Dehli, December [Before 1985].
Dr Warren: (inaudible) (I think we just needa little more time?)
Shri Mataji: Now, you see the thing is, how many are really settled for marriage? Raise your hand.
Sahaja Yogi: It’s Chandra and Matti.
Shri Mataji: Not yet.
Sahaja Yogi: Not yet.
Shri Mataji: Not yet. That’s not yet settled, because told you, if he has a problem, is a problem. I am telling you very frankly: unless and until you fully sort it out, […]
Shri Mataji Nirmala Devi
Translation of Old Marathi Letter – ( Letter Nirmal Yoga 15-1)
Man wants peace, wealth, power, etc., but God is the origin of all these. Then why should there not be the desire for God? Why should there be no aspiration and ambition to meet God?
We should pray to God for peace, and keep the desire to meet God who is peace itself.
This should be the difference in satisfaction of a common man and that of a Sahaja Yogi. […]

“It is you who has to enjoy it”, Public Programme, Cambridge (GB), 9 October 1982
I bow to all the seekers of Truth.
When we say we are seeking, we must know that we are a special category of people.
People were seeking before also. They were seeking power, money, possessions, affluence, every sort of thing.
Still they are not satisfied, those who have got it. And so those who are seeking the truth are the highest, […]

Public Program Day 2, “When Christ Will Come”, Temple de la Fusterie, Geneva (Switzerland), 24 August 1982
Again, I bow today to the seekers of truth. From the very beginning, I have to say, that I would like to address to all those who are really seeking the truth. I am not going just to read something to you and give My own interpretation about it. All of you have got sufficient intelligence to read any book you like and to have your own interpretation. […]
Shri Ganesha Puja. Troinex, (Geneva, Switzerland), 22 August 1982.
Before the Talk:

A mature person.

Public Program, Friends Meeting House, Cheltenham UK, 1 August 1982.
Brian, you better be sitted. Let Brian be sitted first. So you are all right, Warren? Get up. Let him sit. He cannot see. Now, it’s all right. I know Chris has already informed you about the advent of Sahaja Yoga. As you know modern times, are great times, for spirituality. Never before, in the history, of this universe, there were so many seekers. Even if you go back, […]
“Heart, Vishuddhi, Agya, Sahasrara – Becoming the Knowledge”, Public Programme, Derby (UK), 11 July 1982.
I’mI’m happy that Dr. Warren could explain to you those chakras about which I told you yesterday, because in one short lecture you can’t cover all these points. And if you get your Realization and you progress well, then you can listen to My tapes which are in hundreds, and you can understand the knowledge is vast like ocean. As I yesterday told you that when you get enlightenment, […]
