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. […]
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. […]
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. […]

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, […]
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. […]
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, […]
“Motivate your attention”, Mahashivaratri Puja. Bundilla Scout Camp, Sydney (Australia), 3 March 1996.
Today we are going to do puja to Shiva, Shri Shiva. As you know, Shri Shiva is the reflection of Sadashiva within us.
I’ve already told about the reflection. Sadashiva is the God Almighty, the one who sees the play of Adi Shakti. But He is the Father who is watching each one of His Creation or Her Creation.
His support to Adi Shakti is entirely, […]
TV interview by Santo Biasatti
Interviewer: It is difficult on this time to talk about the spirit?
Shri Mataji: That’s most essential at this time. We are in a chaotic world, because we don’t know that we are the spirit. All this restlessness is because we have to still become the spirit. Without that we are still at the human level. And we live in a relative world while we have to be in the absolute. […]
Public Program, 1995-0829, Teatro Avenida, Buenos Aires (Argentina)
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 describe it. It is, it has been, it will be.
Now we have to understand that in these modern times human beings have become very restless. This restlessness may say that we cannot adjust ourselves to the speed of the modern times. […]
Shri Krishna Puja. Cabella Ligure (Italy), 20 August 1995.
Today we are going to worship Radha and Krishna. It’s a very festive feeling because Shri Krishna came on this earth at a time when people had become extremely serious about religion, about spirituality, and that made the whole aspect of religion as a joyless achievement.
And that’s how people became very serious; also the attention of people was diverted into a kind of a drama, which created aloofness from the society. […]
Address to Tunisian women. Tunis (Tunisia), 13 November 1994.
Shri Mataji: You can’t see? You can come here.
Yogi: … ladies, Shri Mataji, they all say that they have got used to You, and they love You very much…
Shri Mataji: Thank you.
Yogi: … and they want You to stay in Tunisia (Shri Mataji laughs), they want You to buy a residence – they want to buy a residence for You, so You can come more often (applause). […]
Public Program, Tunis (Tunisia), 12 November 1994.
I bow to all the seekers of truth. Yesterday I told you that truth is what it is. You cannot change it, you cannot transform it, and you cannot know it by reading. Whatever I’m going to tell you also now, you should not take it for granted blindfolded. It has already caused us so much trouble all over the world by blind faith. But I would request you to treat my lecture as a hypothesis. […]
Public Program, Tunis (Tunisia), 11 November 1994.
[42:39. This is a TV interview just before entering on the stage at the public program. It will be transmitted on the national news.]
Interviewer (Lady): Shri Mataji, did you find a nice welcoming audience in Tunisia?
Shri Mataji: Yes, very much so, thank you very much, very kind of you.
Interviewer (Lady): Which are your impressions, your feelings coming here?
Shri Mataji: I mean, it’s one of the many places I have visited like this. […]
Diwali Puja Talk. Istanbul (Turkey) – November 5, 1994.
[This talk was translated to Russian and Romanian as Shri Mataji spoke.]
Today we are going to celebrate the Diwali, which means the rows of lights or, you can say, group of lights.
We need somebody to translate into Turkish also. It’s all right.
This Diwali has been a festival of very ancient times in India. I already told in My previous lectures what are these five days are. […]
Public Program, Buenos Aires, 1994-1020
I bow to all the seekers of the truth. At the very outset, we have to know that the truth is what it is. We cannot change it, we cannot describe it, but unfortunately, at this human awareness, we cannot know it. Something more has to happen to our awareness. I have to tell you that truth is to be known through the real experience of it, that to all your central nervous system. […]

Public Program, “The Inner Religion”. Palais des Congrès, Paris (France), July, the 12th 1994.
I bow to all the seekers of truth. At the very outset, I have to say that truth is what it is. We cannot change it, we cannot transform it. We cannot compromise with it. It is what it is, it has been what it has been, and it will be what it has been. So it doesn’t change. What is needed is that we have to change. […]
Mahashivaratri Puja. Delhi (India), 14 March 1994.
It’s a great pleasure that from all over the world people have gathered to worship Shiva. Actually we should say it is Sadashiva that we are going to worship today. As you know the difference between Sadashiva and Shri Shiva. Sadashiva is the God Almighty and He is a witness of the play of the Primordial Mother.
The combination between Sadashiva and the Primordial Mother Adi Shakti is just like a moon and the moonlight or the sun or the sunlight. […]
