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? […]
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; […]
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. […]
Public Program 2001-10-23
It so very kin do f you to have waited for such a long time. I am sorry I don’t know your language, but I can see how you love, love the truth and you want to have it. [not audible] . …that’s the most important thing. All the religions have said. But what is happening today is that all the religions are fighting among themselves. Why should it happen? Why shouldn’t we know ourselves? […]
Navaratri Puja. Loutraki (Greece), 21 October 2001.
Today we have gathered
here to do the Devi Puja.
This Puja was performed many a time 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 situation; that there are people who are themselves devils in them and also mesmerized by them, who are trying to do something which they should never have done. […]
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, […]
Discorso all’aeroporto Malpensa. Milan (Italy) , 26 Aprile 2001.
(At Mother’s arrival, She is covered by flowers. Sahaja Yogis welcome Her by singing “Vishwa Vandita” and “Aspettando Lei”)
It’s very heartening to see so many of you coming to welcome Me. I feel so joyous I can’t express it in words. Your love is like the ocean which just moves from one person to another.It’s so great to come to Italy again.
(Long clapping, followed by a “ola” […]
Birthday Felicitations. Delhi (India), 20 March 2001.
Sir C.P.’s Talk:
Shri Mataji’s Talk:
I bow to all those who have found the truth and those who are still trying to find. The greatest problem of human beings is, surprising, that they don’t know themselves. They don’t know what powers they have. They don’t know what properties they have. They don’t know to what height they can rise. This is the main problem of ignorance about yourself. […]
(Conversations with sahaja yogis in a hotel)
Shri Mataji to a child: I’m talking about you! Ah! One child is enough!Guido: To change the atmosphere.Shri Mataji: Absolutely. They try to please you all the time. You should take to small children, then you won’t age much. I think one of the things.Guido: Vibrations.Shri Mataji: Vibrations, and also you become like a child, with them, that enjoyment of the children. You cannot get old. Very difficult. They do not have reactions. […]
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, […]
Public Program, Berkeley (USA). 5 June 2000.
I bow to all the seekers of truth.
I do not know how to thank the mayor of Oakland and mayor of Berkeley for being so kind to give this certificate to Me. I must say this is a wonderful country where people recognize something that is doing good work. Really remarkable it is. I had been here before, to Berkeley, because everybody tells Me that there are lots of seekers of truth in Berkeley. […]
Marriages at Birthday Puja: “Talks to Brides and to Grooms”. Delhi (India), 23 March 2000.
I am very happy to see you all here, and you should know you are going for a little different life, that you are getting married in Sahaja Yoga.
There’s a difference between the other marriages and Sahaja Yoga marriage in which we understand that marriage has to be a special, as they call yagnya, means a special type of a holy alliance in which you have to lead a very Sahaj life with your wife and to understand her. […]
Christmas Puja, Ganapatipule, India, December 25th 1999
Now that the talk was partly extracted from the “Shores of Bharat” VHS it became evident that the major part of the Puja protocol is missing.
If you happen to come across a Recording of the Christmas Puja from the 25th of December, 1999, please be so kind to provide this tape to the archive.

Today we are going to celebrate the birth of Jesus Christ. […]
Public Program, Greece, 9 November 1999.
I bow to all the seekers of truth. First of all we have to know what is the truth we are seeking and how we are going to seek it and what is the proof that you have got the truth. Firstly, you must know that you cannot purchase the truth. It is, you cannot market it, because truth is love and love is compassion. So now I am going to tell you about the truth, […]
Diwali puja. Delphi (Greece), 7 November 1999.
It is very, very fortunate and auspicious that we are celebrating the Diwali in Greece, specially in Delphi. It has a very ancient history, and as you know Athena resided here.
She was the Primordial Mother. “Atha” in Sanskrit means “primordial.” So this place has been described, has been described even in the Puranas as “Manipur [navel] dvipa [island].” Manipur is the Nabhi. Also in Sanskrit Manipur means the Nabhi Chakra. […]
Talk during Evening Program Day, Delphi, Greece 2, 06/11/1999
[Talk starts at 1:30:43 on video]
So first of all, I wish you all a very happy Diwali and a prosperous whole year, after this New year day.
The whole program, I must say, was overwhelmingly joyous and happy and such beautiful words have been said about enlightenment. You don’t know how happy I feel to see you all develop your enlightenment into such a joyful establishment of a, […]
Evening Program Day 1, Delphi, Camping Apollon, 05/11/1999
Gregoire: Shri Mataji, about fifteen years ago, some of us wanted to seek the blessing of having a puja in Delphi and I remember we had prepared the program but it was not then to be. It was to be now. This is the last puja in the occident, in the west, and it is the last puja in the west in this second millennium Shri Mataji, and it feels like long time back you opened a page in Delphi and now you are closing a page, […]
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. […]
Music will bring glory to Sahaja Yoga, Eve of Sahastrara puja, 08/05/1999,
[At the end of the music program and of the Magic Flute]
Sometimes the words fail to express the feelings of great gratitude for all of you – for putting up this collective effort and such a beautiful concentrated work as a real piece of art.
I had seen “Magic Flute” long time back, when I was in Berlin, and that time – of course I didn’t understand German language, […]
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; […]
“Materialism, Nature and Balance”, Evening before Navaratri Puja. Cabella (Italy), 4 October 1997.
[During the evening program, after some musical performances and a play by the English, the Swiss sahaja yogis acted in a play where they openly denounced the Swiss bank (about its money laundering etc.). Ultimately they recited the “litany for the doom of Materasura”, the demon of materialism:]
“Litany for the doom of Materasura”:
This is a world that feeds the Swiss Banks’ Octopus. […]
Guru Puja. Cabella Ligure (Italy), 20 July 1997.
Today’s puja is very important for us. You all have got your self realisation, you have all the knowledge that is necessary to give realisation to others. You have to know what you have already, that’s very important, because if you do not try your hand and if you do not try to give realisation to others, firstly you will have no faith in yourself – you’ll have no self esteem also. […]
Shri Krishna Puja. New York (USA), 29 September 1996.
[Video begins with musical evening program footage where a young Indian girl dances for Shri Mataji. She says: “Wa wa wa”. Then: “Now. (Hindi) We are all sitting like a family sitting together.
There should be a show there, eh?…
Done very well. They’re from Vienna? …
A composition which you yourself have made it into dance – … wa wa. Bring her to Cabella” (Shri Mataji laughs). […]
Talk the day before Shri Krishna Puja
[Three Indian musicians are playing together, a lady playing violin, a gentleman playing flute and another gentleman playing tablas. During their performance at a certain point they say they are going to play a music piece – bhajan – whose lyrics were written by Babamama, but Shri Mataji comments in Hindi that it was written by somebody from Switzerland. The bhajan is “Isi Liye”. Then after this musical piece Shri Mataji speaks on the microphone]
Guru puja. Cabella Ligure (Italy), 28 July 1996.
Today we have gathered here to do Guru puja. This system started long time back in India, I think even at the time of Patanjali, maybe even earlier, when there were great seekers. And their gurus were sitting in the jungles, where they used to get permission to go there and then they would get their realisation, very few of them, one or two. So we had many rishis and munis in the olden times in India. […]
Departure To Ukraine, Kurumoch International Airport, Samara (Russia)
Отъезд в Украину, Выступление Шри Матаджи в аэропорту «Курумоч», Самара (Россия) 20 июля 1996 г.
Shri Mataji: I was telling to doctor that those who want to go for Ganapatipule can do it very easily from Samara.
Yuri Vasiliev: Я говорила Богдану, что те, кто хотел бы ехать в Ганапатипуле, могут это сделать через Самару.
Shri Mataji: Because they can do charter flights up to Delhi and we can arrange the train and then by bus. […]
Meeting with the Mayor of Togliatti Jilkin S.F.
Togliatti, Russia, 20 July 1996.
Togliatti TV: Все сахаджа-йоги очень довольны, что первый мэр в России, первый мэр города, желает встретиться со Шри Матаджи. Это говорит о большой духовности нашего города и мэра города, и все сахаджа-йоги очень благодарны вам за это.
Mayor (Jilkin): Спасибо за оценку моей духовности, а вот что вы сказали о духовности города – это на самом деле так. Наш город отличается от всех не потому, […]
