I am sorry there was an accident on the way and it took us so much time that they were delayed and we were also delayed. I hope you will excuse us.
[Shri Mataji explains the bhajan written by Saint Namadeva ‘Nirgunanchi Bheti Aalo Sugunasange’]
“This song, this song is an introduction very much because it’s a song which was created in the sixteenth century by a very famous musician – I should say a very famous poet – called Namadeva. […]
1993-0717, Public Program, Hotel Metropole
I bow to all the seekers of Truth. We have to know at the very outset that Truth is what is is. We cannot conceptualise it. We cannot change it. It has been, it is and it will be. But we have to know the absolute Truth. So far whatever we know through our human awareness is not absolute. That’s why there are so many differences, so many different ideologies. This Truth we have to know on our central nervous system. […]
Shri Vishnumaya Puja, Ashram Everbeek (Belgium), 4 July 1992.
Talk starts at 17:44 on video
It’s a unique opportunity today to do Vishnumaya Puja because She entered into this house [Shri Mataji laughing], we have to worship Her.First we should know who is Vishnumaya. It’s very important to know because in the Devi Mahatmyam She is only described as the Incarnation of the Goddess: “Vishnumaya iti shabdita” [chant 5], She is called as Vishnumaya.But let’s see who is She? […]
Public Program Day 2
I bow to all the seekers of truth. (Why don’t you sit here, it’ll be better, they are all trying to see your faces, sit here). Alright, you all can see him now. Yesterday I told you at the very outset that truth is where it is, we cannot change it, we cannot conceptualize it. Also, we cannot pay for it and we cannot put in any human effort to achieve it. […]
Public Program Day 1
They are all in the same business, be-fooling people, mesmerizing them, destroying their chakras and making money out of them. I mean there are institutions, yesterday we discovered one lady who had been to some authorized institution for some sort of psychological analysis. And she paid a lot of money and what she got is a body which shakes in a very funny way all the time and she cannot stand even. […]
Shri Buddha Puja, “You must become desireless”. Deinze (Belgium), 4 August 1991.
Today, we have assembled here to do puja to Buddha.
As you know Buddha was a son of a king. And one day He was shocked to see a very poor man, thin man, walking on the street, very unhappy person, and He felt very sad about it. Then He saw one person who was very sick and about to die. Then He saw a man who was dead and people were carrying him to the cremation ground. […]
By the people who themselves are corrupt, money-oriented, one gets disillusioned. Also, there is a category of people who find that in searching money and power they have achieved the joy of life, but there’s another category of people, who are aware that they have not been able to find the absolute truth. William Blake calls them as men of God. And such people would be born in these modern times, has been predicted a long time back. […]
Shri Mahalakshmi Puja, Mechelen (Belgium), 9 October 1987.
It was so very nice to come to Belgium and have so many people for our program and I must say, now we are getting to people who are very sensitive. [translation follows – yes] It is a .. it is a new dimension I think, I feel, we are entering into. Because now we are really getting people who are seriously interested in their realization and are very respectful. […]
1987-10-08 Public Program Day 2 and Q+A, Antwerp, Belgium
PART I (Talk)
I am sorry the hall is so far away, you found it so difficult to come here.
I bow to all the people who are seeking the truth. Yesterday I explained to you that truth is what it is, will be the same. And a simple truth is that you are the spirit. You are not this body, you are not this mind, you are not these conditionings, […]
Public Program Day 1, Ancien Hôtel Communal, Brussels, Belgium 10.07.1987
<Introduction in French>
I Bow to all the seekers of Truth!
As you are here to find out truth, you have
to know that the truth cannot be ordered. And truth is not our concept. We
cannot organize the truth. Truth exists beyond human powers. For example, if
you say that this is wood, we can see it is wood, we can feel it is wood and
everybody says it is wood, […]
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, […]
Music Program, 1986-0920, Belgium
I am very much touched by the way this folk dance was presented. They must have done this dance long time back, many times in many ages. I felt all the village folk are sitting here and enjoying the folk dance. All the Belgians are sitting as if, there’s a tremendous feeling of unity with that, the joy they must have enjoyed throughout and today they are enjoying. That time they must have been very simple people, […]
Public Program, Brussels 1986-0919
In the world today, we find an uncertain fear of a great shock. (I think little louder, they are not hearing) It could be from the atomic explosion, could be from some financial catastrophe, but the destruction is now going to come through our inner being. We have paid attention to the outward world, but we have paid no attention whatsoever to our inner being. In the west, the search has been outside, […]
Public Program, Ghent, 1986-0918
I bow to all the seekers of truth. The truth is absolute. But human awareness has not reached the state to be aware of the truth. To know the truth, one has to know it on your central nervous system. You cannot know it by your mental projections. Whatever you have discovered so far, was already there and that’s how you have discovered it. The truth that we have to know, is a very simple thing. […]
Public Program. 1986-09-17
We are living in these modern times which are very eventful In last 50 of 60 years so many things have happened and the churning should bring forth many truths before us First we have to realize that man has separated from each other. The relationships that existed once upon a time are no more to be found today. And on the collective level we are waiting for a shock. God knows what sort of a disaster is going to fall upon us. […]

Public Program 1985-0701, Brussels
I bow to all the seekers of truth. First of all, I must apologise for the small place that we have. But it gives me tremendous joy to see so many seekers in Brussels. It is a special category of human beings who are seekers, as it is human beings are the epitome of evolution, but seekers are people gifted with a special awareness who know that there is something beyond. They may not have known about it may be, […]
Press Conference, 1985-0701
Shri Mataji: How do we start, am I suppose to say something about Kundalini?
Yogi: Yes Shri Mataji we would like to know
Shri Mataji Hmm
Yogi: By your voice something about
Shri Mataji: You have told them already? I can I think they can ask me questions if you have already told them they know of the subject
Journalists discussing something among themselves
Shri Mataji: Beg your pardon
Journalist: says something
Shri Mataji: Me? […]

This is the first time we are having a puja in Belgium. That’s very quick for a puja to be done like that.Normally we don’t allow people to come to puja unless and until they are established Sahaja yogis.Because sometimes if they are half-baked, it harms them more in the way that they start doubting and thinking about it. But in the puja you should stop thinking, do not doubt, do not think, […]
Public Program Day 3, Brussels (Belgium), 21 September 1982.
… of these things, they can fall a trap to all these people who practise this kind of black magic. But an intelligent man must understand that what you have to get is your realization. That means the power of your Spirit must manifest, not the powers of some dead spirits which makes you … also they can take your body and travel, astral travelling and all that. […]
Public Program Day 2, Ghent, Belgium
Many people sometimes believe that Christ was born in America and he was an out and out a westerner. But he was not. He was one of them who gave us the knowledge about this. Not only that, but he played a very important role in establishing himself in a point called Agnya Chakra here (Shri Mataji pointing towards her forehead to show Agnya chakra). Now, one may say that Bible is the last word. […]
Talk to Sahaja Yogis
[inaudible] sense of smell because both left and right, because both smell bad – left and right – but one has a very sort of a smell of a very stagnated personality and another has a smell of a, say, jaise pasina (Hindi word: like sweat – ed.) – burning sharp smell, haan (Hindi word : Yes – ed.), sharp, pungent. [inaudible] like if you put the blanket, you see at the bottom, […]
1st Public Program. Gent (Belgium), 19 September 1982.
[Introduction in Dutch. Starts at 4:29]
It’s very kind of the Sahaja Yogis of Gent to invite Me to come here in Belgium itself to meet them and meet other people who are seeking the truth. Actually, every place, every country where Sahaja Yoga started, it had a very dramatic beginning. And I have been always enjoying and witnessing the fun of the reaction – the first reaction of the people to truth. […]
