Mr. Dr. Rai: (02:35) Jai Shri Mataji! First of all I would like to thank Shri Mataji from the bottom of our hearts for having giving us the chance to be here.

Presentation Of Dr. Rai On Sahastrara Day – Medical Session Nirmal Temple, Cabella Ligure (Italy)
Guru Puja, “How to Become a Guru”, Cabella Ligure, 20 July 2008
Today is a very great day for all the sahaja yogis. Because Sahastrara opened in you, you could feel the existence of God. By saying there is God that was not sufficient and to say that there is no God also was wrong, very wrong and people have suffered who have said like them. Only after getting realisation you know that there is God and there are vibrations. […]
Easter Puja, “You must forgive”, Hotel Pride, Nagpur (India), March 23th, 2008
I never expected all of you to be here present for the puja. I don’t know how you have managed to come (laughter and applause). Otherwise, it’s a very important day today for all of us because you know how Christ died. He was crucified. He was put on a cross and then He died.
Wonderful the way he said about you people. He asked for forgiveness from God. […]
Guru Puja, Cabella Ligure (Italy), 4 July 2004
It is a great pleasure for me, greatest joy, to see so many Sahaja Yogis for the Guru puja. It’s very gratifying to think that there are so many, so many of you, who are disciples. It was never expected that I’ll have so many, so many people following me.
It is being expected that you all will follow my message of love. I do not have to say anything for love. […]
Sahastrara puja, “Continue to live a life of Reality”,. Cabella Ligure (Italy), 9 May 2004.
Today is a very important day in our lives as Sahaja Yogis. This is the day when Sahastrara was opened out, which was clearly a very charismatic thing that happened.
I never expected that in my lifetime I’ll be able to work it out, but it has been. And so many of you have got your Sahastrara opened. Without that, you could never have known what is the Truth. […]
Navaratri Puja, Wisdom Through Meditation, Bhakti & Shraddha, Los Angeles (USA), 27 October 2002.
Today, we are going to worship the Goddess. That’s the, first the left side programming is with Her, but later on, at Sahastrara, She’s the Adi Shakti. And, on the left side, whatever She does is already written, as you must have seen, because She’s the memory and She’s the wisdom and, that She protects you, is shown when She uses Her power over the Ganas. […]
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. […]
Guru Puja. Cabella Ligure (Italy), 21 July 2002.
(A loud thunder-clap followed by applause)
In India they were all waiting for the monsoons and they are so worried because the rain did not come. So, I was giving bandhan to the rain and it came here (applause and Mother laughs). And now also they have told, on the television, that it is going to rain in India. But first in Italy! (laughter)
I was told that in Italy you needed rain very much and the first rain you had, […]
2002-07-20 Talk after Evening Program of the play: 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 all of you for acting so well and what a drama it was! […]
Adi Shakti Puja. Cabella Ligure (Italy), 23 June 2002.
Today it’s a different day altogether for all of you because this is the puja of Adi Shakti, and Adi Shakti is a complete personality. It’s not only the Left Side that you know.
You all know only the Left Side, from Shri Ganesha through the ascent of different, different chakras on the Left Side. I didn’t want to tell you about the Right Side to begin with, […]
Sahastrara Puja. Cabella Ligure (Italy), 5 May 2002.
Today is a very great day I must say,
to celebrate Sahastrara, the puja of Sahastrara. It’s a very unique thing that
has happened that your Sahastraras were opened out.
There were some very few people in
this whole world; there were some Sufis, there were some saints, some other
people also in China and all. But very few, very few got their Sahastrara
opened out. So whatever they said, […]
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. 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.
So we faced a very big challenge, […]
‘VIP’ and Journalists Invitational Program in Russell Hotel, 1-8 Russell Square, London WC1B 5BE (UK), 15 July 2001.
I thank you very much, all of you, for coming over for a small meeting that we are going to have and, it’s very important for you people who are responsible in life to understand what is the work of Sahaja Yoga and how important it is. I mean, now we have people all over the world, it’s working in 85 countries. […]
Guru Puja, “Introspection, love and purity” Cabella Ligure (Italy), 8 July 2001.
You don’t know how your Mother feels to see so many people who have become, really, gurus, themselves. They have been seeking the Truth in very difficult times. They have been wanting to know what is the Truth. And this difficult time, itself, has served to act upon your minds that, what is happening in this world, whatever we are seeing around us, in the whole world also, […]
“The Work of the Adi Shakti”, Adi Shakti Puja, Cabella Ligure (Italy), 3 June 2001.
Today we are worshipping Adi Shakti.
I think this is the most important puja because it is the power of Adi Shakti that has given you Self-realisation, that has given you the truth, that has given you the power of compassion and love.
That’s the power that separated from Sadashiva. And this power wanted, Herself, to create this complete universe — universes after universes. […]
Sahastrara Puja. Cabella Ligure (Italy), 6 May 2001.
Today, I bow to all the Sahaja Yogis who have found the Truth.
There has been, from ages, the seeking for the Truth. And when people discovered that there’s no other way but to surrender to the Divine that you can find the truth, they did not know how to do it, how to work it out.
There have been seekers all over the world.I went to Turkey and I was amazed there have been lots of Sufis, […]
Diwali Puja. Lake Piru, near Los Angeles, California (USA) – 29 October 2000.
It’s a great day today for the whole world that we are celebrating this Diwali Puja in America. It’s very important. Here, where people have been able to earn money, to have lots of money sometimes, and are also people who are ruined completely because of money.
When we talk of Diwali we should understand that – why on a Diwali day we have all these lights? […]

Weddings, Talk To Bridegrooms
Palazzo Doria, Cabella Ligure (Italy), September 17th, 2000
I didn’t give any lecture to the girls.
I think it is more the responsibility of the men to make their marriages successful.
Men have to understand that marriage is a very important part of your life. And your time and respect should be given for that. […]
Shri Ganesha Puja, “Your innocence will save this world”, Cabella Ligure (Italy), 16th September 2000
Today, we have gathered here to do Ganesha Puja.
I know very well that Ganesha is the symbol of purity, of sanctity, and worshipping the innocence. When you are worshipping Shri Ganesh, you have to know that He is the embodiment of innocence.
I wonder if we understand the meaning of ‘innocence’ or not. Innocence is a quality, which is innate, […]
Shri Krishna puja. Cabella Ligure (Italy), 20 August 2000.
Today we are here to worship Shri Krishna within us.
As you know you all have been seeking before coming to Sahaj Yoga. You went to different places, read lots of books and also some of you were lost. And, in that seeking, perhaps you did not know what you were seeking. What you were seeking was to know yourself. In all religions it is said ‘know thyself’: is a common thing all of them have said. […]
Guru Puja, “Shraddha”. Cabella Ligure (Italy), 23 July 2000.
Today we are here to know about guru principle. What does a guru do. Whatever you have, all the precious things within you, he discovers them for your knowledge. Actually it is all there – everything. All the knowledge, all the spirituality, all the joy, is there. (little laughter as a dog walks on stage) Right time! (more laughter). It’s all contained within you. Only thing the Guru does (is) makes you knowledgeable about your knowledge, […]
Talk after Sahastrara Puja, “Penetrate Your Attention”,. Cabella Ligure, Italy, 7 May 2000
It was really a wonderful idea to put my attention to all these fields of life which are very important and, as it is, I have attention on all of them and I care for all that. But I would say now you all people put in your attention to it, because it is you who can do something about it. You can start with the nature as they said is this: we have to be kind to the nature. […]
Sahastrara puja, “Attain that Sahaja state”, Cabella Ligure (Italy), 07 May 2000.
Thirty years back, when Sahastrara was opened, I found darkness all over. People were so ignorant. They had no awareness [about] what they have to find. Of course, I found they wanted to find something that was unknown, but they did not know what was unknown, what they have to find. And they were extremely ignorant people, about themselves, and about their surroundings, and about the aim of their life. […]
Evening Program before Sahastrara Puja Day 1, Cabella Ligure, May 5th 2000
[The evening program is concluded by a santoor concert by Bhajan Sopori. During the concert Shri Mataji says”Wah”. At the end of the concert: “Wah wah”.]
(Shri Mataji speaks first in Hindi: “…Sukhwinder…”)
It is really a very memorable program we had, as was told before, and I’m amazed how it has all been done so well.
The idea of calling Bhajan Sopori was very much appreciated in the beginning. […]
Shivaratri Puja, Pune, India, 5 March 2000.
First, I’ll speak in English language, because we have so many people from foreign countries, and especially from Madras (Chennai) and also from Kerala, Hyderabad and Bangalore. All these people have come here, and I don’t know what other people are here, who have come from South and who do not yet understand Hindi language.
This Shivaratri has a special meaning, I think, because there is so much – if you read any newspaper in the morning, […]
Shri Ganesha Puja. “We must respect the Mother Earth”, Cabella Ligure (Italy), 25 September 1999.
Today we have gathered here to worship Shri Ganesha.
You all know what a powerful Deity He is. His power comes from his innocence. When we see small children we’re automatically compelled towards them and also we want to love them, kiss them and be with us. And very innocent they are, extremely innocent. And when we worship Shri Ganesh we have to know if we have been really innocent or not. […]
Shri Virata Puja. Cabella (Italy), 5 September 1999.
Tonight we are going to worship Shri Krishna as Virat.
First it is important to understand the incarnation of Shri Krishna. The word ‘Krishna’ comes from the word ‘Krishi’ – ‘Krishi’ means ‘agriculture’. He sowed the seeds of spirituality. And for that, first of all we have to think: “Where are we, as far as spirituality is concerned? How is the land?”
So what had happened at the time of Shri Rama is that he had created lots of maryadas. […]
Guru puja, “Assimilating the Absolute Knowledge”, Cabella Ligure (Italy), 1 August 1999.
Since we have come to Cabella, it is the ten years completed! So you can imagine how, in these ten years, we have been able to progress in Sahaja Yoga.
Now, today, we are going to have a Guru puja. As I have said, you are all gurus and you want to worship me as your Guru – is alright – but the main thing one should understand [is] that you have become guru, […]
Adi Shakti Puja. Canajoharie, USA. 20 June 1999.
It is such a great pleasure to Me, to see you all assembled here, and which is such a far-fetched place, away from the madding crowd. It’s such a beautiful place, and which has vibrations.
Shri Mataji: They can’t hear you. Now can you hear Me?
Sahaja Yogis: Yes.
Shri Mataji: All right. It’s all right now.
I selected this place suddenly from a very thick newspaper, American newspaper. […]
Sahastrara Puja, “Our Awareness has to become Paramchaitanya” Cabella Ligure, (Italy), 9 May 1999.
Today we have gathered here to do the Sahastrara puja.
Sahastrar, the word ‘sahastr’, in Sanskrit language, means ‘one thousand’. And there are one thousand petals in our brain which get enlightened. Of course, the doctors are quarrelling on that point but forget about them.
Now these petals are kept ready for our enlightenment, and these are really the nerves, one thousand nerves, […]
Diwali Puja, Novi Ligure, Italy, October 25th, 1998
I am overjoyed really today to see you all here to celebrate the Diwali Puja. We were to be in Portugal but it was not so – so we are here.
Diwali Puja is a very small puja but extremely significant. Firstly in Diwali, the first day they buy something for the family. You can – maybe some cooking utensil could be, an ornament for the wife or something like that. […]
Shri Ganesha Puja, “Ekakarita”, Cabella Ligure, 5 September, 1998
[Shri Mataji is welcomed upon Her arrival by the sahaja yogis singing “Nirmala, Kiti Varnavi Tujhiga Sthuti”]
Today we are going to worship Shri Ganesh.
I think I have told you a lot about Him and His nature, but still so many of us have not yet realized what are His powers, and what He wants.
First and foremost thing is that to respect Shri Ganesha is to understand the importance of chastity. […]
Guru puja, “You must learn obedience”, Cabella Ligure (Italy), 12 July 1998.
Today, we have assembled here to do the Guru Puja.
The word ‘guru’ comes from ‘the one which is magnetic’, ‘the person who is magnetic’. The one which attracts the attention of the seekers, is the guru. Also it means ‘the heaviness’ or, you can say: a person who is very steady, who is very deep, who has the knowledge and who can act like the Mother Earth; […]
Adi Shakti Puja. Cabella Ligure (Italy), 21 June 1998.
In Russia the people, somehow, are very open-minded, not only that, the Scientists especially, are very open-minded and were suppressed very much. So they tried to find out the subtler things; not only finding out about chemicals or about some physical properties of the light, but, they wanted to go into the subtler side and they had found out already a great deal of knowledge about the auras – auras around the hands, […]
Sahastrara Puja. Cabella Ligure (Italy), 10 May 1998.
Today, it’s a great day because Sahastrara day and Mother’s day have come together. It’s a very Sahaj happening, I think, and that is what we have to understand, how Sahastrara and the motherhood go together.
Sahastrara was definitely opened and Mother had to do it, because formerly those people who came on this earth tried to teach people about dharma, to bring them to the central path, […]
Easter Puja. Istanbul (Turkey),
19 April 1998.
Today, we are celebrating the Resurrection of Christ. That
is the greatest message of Christ life, not the crucifixion.
can be crucified and killed, but this dead body of Christ was resurrected from
death. Death itself died and He overcame
It’s a miracle for ordinary human beings, definitely, but not for Christ,
because He was a Divine person, He was Shri Ganesha, He was Omkara Itself. So, […]
Birthday Puja, Delhi (India), 21 March 1998.
I was overjoyed to see the way you had organized this beautiful welcome. I must say that it’s your love which finds all kind of expressions of enjoying Sahaja Yoga. I really can’t understand how these unique ideas come to your heads, and you represent the different countries from where you have come. I wish you carry these flags back to your own countries, and tell them the message that the time has come for our resurrection, […]
Christmas Puja. Ganapatipule (India), 25 December 1997.
Translated from Hindi:
He went back just for last three years and people fixed Him to a cross. It was somewhat destined. To open Agnya chakra He had to offer this sacrifice. So in this way He set up Agnya chakra. Agnya chakra is very constricted small and not easily openable because a human being got freedom that made him egoistic. This ego constricted his Agnya chakra. And from that constricted Agnya chakra it was necessary to take out ego And to take out ego you have to control your [MAAN]. […]
Diwali Puja. Sintra, Lisbon (Portugal) – 2 November 1997.
Today, we have gathered here to worship Shri Lakshmi.
In Diwali, in India, they worship Lakshmi because a great rakshasa called Narakasura was killed; also that Lakshmi came out of the sea, at the same time, long time back. I mean, I should say, this is like Her different appearances on the same geography [unsure].
Lakshmi is the Goddess which gives us wealth, gives us prosperity. She is very blissful, […]
Navaratri Puja, “Your Beautiful Qualities will prove the Truth of Sahaja Yoga”. Cabella (Italy), 5 October 1997.
[Upon arrival Shri Mataji is welcomed by yogis singing “Durgati Harani Durga Ambe”]
Today is the sixth day of Navaratri.
There have been many incarnations of the Goddess for different, different purposes. But when the great saints introspected themselves, who were worshipping the Mother, they found out that what She has done for us.
The other day I told you the dharma is the innate valency of human beings. […]
Shri Ganesha Puja. Cabella Ligure (Italy), 7 September 1997.
Today we are going to worship Shri Ganesha.
It is said about him, that He is the first deity that was created on this earth by Adi Shakti. And about his creation, you know the story. And also you know how an elephant´s head was attached to him. Today, I am going to tell something more subtler about him, Kundalini and the Mother Earth. He was made out of the Mother Earth, […]
Adi Shakti Puja. Cabella Ligure (Italy), 25 May 1997.
Today we are going to do the Puja of Adi Shakti. It’s a difficult subject to talk about Adi Shakti, because it’s not easy to understand that Adi Shakti is the power of Sadashiva.
Sadashiva is the God Almighty. She is His breath, as they some people call it. Some say She is the desire and some say that She’s the entire power of Sadashiva, and Sadashiva cannot do anything without Her powers. […]

Cabella Ligure, May 24th, 1997

Sahastrara Puja, “At Sahastrara you stand on Truth and go beyond Dharma”. Cabella Ligure (Italy), 4 May 1997.
Today we all have assembled here to worship the Sahastrara. As you have realised that Sahastrara is a very important part of the subtle system. Of course this is a great day, in 1970, that this chakra was opened out. But by that, what you have achieved, we have to see it.
First of all when the Kundalini rises she goes to your void, […]
Address to Doctors (Indian Medical Association), Auditorium, New Delhi (India). 6 April 1997.
I bow to all the seekers of Truth.
At the very outset, I have to tell you that Truth is what it is. You cannot change it, you cannot transform it, you cannot explain it. Only thing [is] you can experience it.
In this Kali Yuga there is a special category of people born in all the countries very surprisingly, who are seekers of Truth. […]
Shivaratri puja (Hindi Translation & English part) Delhi (India), March 16th, 1997
First of all I will speak in Hindi language, and then in English. We have such a cosmopolitan people that I do not know which language to take to.

Talk on Marriage Vows at start of weddings, Ganapatipule, India, 29 December 1996
So one should marry with a very open heart because you are marrying in Sahaja Yoga. Is no other binding force for you but your love and affection and care for each other.
Now as you have got a bride and you have got a husband I will tell you one thing that Sahaja Yoga will grow much more now because of you being there as couples who follow Sahaja Yoga, […]
Christmas Puja. Ganapatipule (India), 25 December 1996.
Today, we are celebrating the birth of Jesus Christ. The birth of Jesus Christ is very symbolic, because he was born in such a manner that even the poorest of poor won’t be born in the stable. And he was put in the bed which was made of dried grass.
He came on this earth to show people that for a person who is an incarnation or who is a highly evolved soul, […]

Navaratri Puja. Cabella ligure (Italy), 20 October 1996.
Today is a special day, as you know we are worshipping the Goddess, who came on this earth nine times before, to kill all the demons and all the negativity and relieve all the bhaktas to worship. All her work has already been described. Despite that they find, new type of devils, new type of negative people, have come back. Perhaps it had to be. This had to be maybe, […]
