Shri Vishnu puja. Paris (France), 13 July 1994.
It is such a great day today that the French got their liberation on this day. But what is this liberation for? I don’t know. In no country where they had freedom and liberation, I have seen, it has not worked something very much that was expected. Say in France… So the liberation through anger, when it comes, hatred is the basis of these revolutions and these so called achieved liberations. […]
Shri Vishnu puja. Paris (France), 13 July 1994.
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. […]
Public Program “Spiritual Traditions” Paris (France), 12 July 1993.
I bow to all the seekers of truth. At the very outset, we have to know that truth is what it is. We cannot conceptualize it, we cannot change it, we cannot transform it. We have to feel the truth. At this human level, we do not know the absolute truth, that’s why there are all kinds of different opinions about everything. Absolute truth is for everyone the same. […]
Shri Mahakali Puja. St Denis, Paris (France), 11 July 1993.
Today we have decided to have the puja of the Devi. This time we are not talking about Adi Shakti, about Kundalini or about Saraswati, Mahalakshmi. We are talking about the Mahakali. That’s the Goddess which is the first one, which comes first and establishes Shri Ganesha in the form of Gauri. She’s the complete form of Mahasaraswati and Mahalaxmi. Out of Her only these energies emit. […]
Shri Durga Mahakali Puja, Paris (France), 25 July 1992.
Today’s Puja we have arranged of Durga or the Kali. That is the destroying form of the Goddess of all the evil and negativity. This we had to do it in France, because I feel very strongly that day by day, in general, France is going down and down and down. While you people are coming up, the rest of the France is in the most pitiable condition. […]
Public Program, Paris Gaveau, France. 24 July 1992.
I bow to all the seekers of truth. At the very outset we have to know that truth is what it is. We cannot think about it, we cannot conceptualize it. Unfortunately at this human level we cannot feel it, we cannot know it. We have to be the Spirit to know the truth.
Whatever I am going to tell you today you have not to believe blindfolded. […]
Public Program. Paris (France), 11 July 1989.
It’s only possible because they are Sahaja Yogis. Because it’s a very difficult language. And music is very intricate and the rhythm also is very difficult. It’s surprising you all have joined it so well. If I tell this in India, nobody will believe.
So yesterday we were talking about this power within us, which rises and gives us our Self Realization. This is our own power, and she is our mother. […]

Till 7.13 yogis singing Uday ga ambe (Marathi devotional song)
Thank you very much.
I bow to all the seekers of Truth.
It is to be understood that Truth is what it is. We cannot conceptualise it. We cannot achieve it by our human efforts or mental projections. We have to reach into a higher state to know it. To know it.
This song that they sung just now was written in the year in 1600 in India by a very famous poet, […]
ALL THE SECTS ARE DANGEROUS.
The Indians call her ‘The Great Mother’ and see her as a saint; At a very young age she used to write Mahatma Gandhi’s prayers. She’s been living in London since 1975 where her husband is general secretary of IMCO. She has founded yoga centers in India and in several countries in Europe : England, Switzerland, France, Italy.
Shri Mataji Devi is what we usually call a ‘guru’ which is a rather rare status for a woman. […]
Public Program Day 2, Paris (France), 8 July 1988.
I bow to all the seekers of truth.
As I told you yesterday that truth is truth, and cannot be changed, or cannot be molded and cannot be organized. And if we are the seekers of truth, we have to keep our minds open about it. Absolute truth you can only find after Self Realization. Because the self itself, your Spirit itself is the embodiment of truth. […]

[FRENCH] I was just, Shri Mataji, explaining a bit the chakras. So I explained, I explained the different two sides

Public Program, Paris (France), 2 November 1987.
I bow to all the seekers of truth.
At the very outset, I apologize for being late because you know my plane could not leave London somehow. But that shows that you people have real patience, and you want to know the truth. One has to know that truth is what it is. You can not have a concept about truth. Truth is reality which is beyond human concept and is beyond human endeavour. […]
Public Program. Medical College, Paris (France), 21 May 1986.
I bow to all the seekers of truth.
As it is, at length, Gregoire has told you about the chakras and about the three nadis which are within us. But what is the purpose of the mechanism within us? What is the purpose of getting self-realisation? People have been talking about the self, about the Spirit. But what is it? Spirit is the reflection of God Almighty within us in our heart. […]
1985-04-22 Public Program, Paris
I bow to all the seekers of truth. These are exceptional times. There are thousands and thousands people born on this earth who have been seeking the truth for many lives. It is a very special category of personality. As a result of this, people started the seeking in various ways of the unknown. But whatever is unknown is not the truth. This is the problem in the West, that we are not knowledgeable about the roots on which we stand. […]
Public Program. Paris (France), 29 September 1984.
[About the mike] Just have to test it a bit.
I bow to all the seekers of truth. Now, we talk of truth, we have heard about it, and so many of us think that we know the truth. But truth is only known on your central nervous system. Supposing, sitting down in London, I believe that Paris is like this or like that, I do not see the truth. […]
Interview on Radio Enghien, Marie Rouger’s flat, Enghien, suburbs of Paris (France), September 29th, 1984, 29/09/1984
Interviewer [speaks in French]: She is known in India as the greatest woman of these days. She comes to propose to Westerners as well as to Orientals a new stage in their conscience which was promised by Jesus-Christ himself. We can ask Shri Mataji how to achieve this new state of conscience and what will it bring to us?
Marie: The question is how to reach this new state of consciousness and what will t bring us? […]

So I have taken those problems so I’m paying attention, it goes to drug. Somebody might say that: “Why didn’t Muhammad say about drugs?” You see, at the time of Muhammad, there were no smoking. So he didn’t talk about smoking. So the Muslims smoke like that you see. […]
Public Program 3, Paris (France), 18 June 1983.
To all the seekers of joy I bow.
I already told you that joy has no duality. It does not have happiness and unhappiness. It should never be confused with pleasures. Because the pleasure that looks today the pleasure, tomorrow will turn into remorse.
The joy is absolute and eternal. It does not change. Only thing that, how far we have been able to allow the Spirit to shine in our attention, […]
Public Program Day 2
I bow to all the seekers of Reality. At the very outset I have to very humbly apologize for getting late, because of the traffic was very funny today. I hope you understand. [UNCLEAR] to reach at the point where one has to reach perhaps.
Yesterday speech I tried to explain to you how we live with our mental projections only. And when we try to go beyond that, we get involved where we are not actually beyond our mind, […]
Public Program, Paris (France), 16 June 1983.
I bow to all the seekers of truth. Since ancient times man has been searching the truth. He tried to search the truth in various forms of happiness and he discarded many a times because he found that happiness was not permanent. For a short time he felt happy with something and then he found it also gave him great unhappiness. Like a lady, she had no child so she used to weep and cry and she had a child who later on disowned her. […]

Sahaja Yogini: Gaspar?

Sahaja Yogini: Yes
And the last one is Gunter

Public Program, second day, Maison de la Mutualité, Paris, France, 04/05/1982
So as I said, at the very outset, I again ask your forgiveness for this hall which is again for all, smaller inside.
Now, at the very beginning, you have to know that I’m your Mother. I can’t tell you lies, I can’t, sorry. But I don’t want to hurt you either or to make your ego stand up, so that you loose your chance of Realization. […]

…Seekers of truth. At the very outset, I would like to apologize, because I could not attend the session the other day. And also to apologize for this small hall which we could arrange. Please, forgive the organizers for this little hall which has put you to inconveniences.
I was very happy to hear your questions, which gives Me a little idea as to what you are seeking. […]
Public Program. Paris (France), 11 September 1981.
…Because the tree of life has reached a stage where it has created a human being who is a seeker, not all, but many of them, are in a special category of seeking. Say, about a hundred years back, people were busy seeking power, overpowering other countries, mobilizing all their energies in enjoying their overpowering and the rest of the world was under slavery. Then the power game shifted to more, […]
Public Program, Paris (France), September the 9th, 1981
Marie: … Que vous devenez, que vous devez devenir l’Esprit. […That you become, that you must become the Spirit.]
Shri Mataji: Once that happens all these great people will be born here. People always are worried about Indian population. Where should they [the saints] be born? In this England? Where every week two children are killed by their parents, heartless? The poor Indians have to bear the load. […]
Talk to yogis. Paris (France), 20 June 1981.
Like this room has got the atmosphere which is clean, so when the sun rises the light shines very well inside. Spirit is unchangeable, cannot be in anyway made impure nor can it be destroyed. But the attention, if not clear, you may not see the Spirit at all. We can say the lampshade, we can say, is the liver which contains the space which is the attention. […]
Public Program Day 3, The Creation of the World
Subject: This is, Human evolution and what is the situation today?
The subject itself says that it is the evolution of man from amoeba to this stage of creation in one part and the second is what is going to happen to be him after. So what has happened from creation we shall hear today and what is going to happen after today. The part of it which I am going to tell you today maybe is not yet known to many people.The part of it which I am going to tell you later on is known to our science.But is not yet being felt at the subtler level what it has done to us. […]
Public Program. Paris (France), 28 November 1980.
… now in this world in such a big number. What is the reason that such a seeking [is established?]? Suddenly a great number of people are seeking God? They are like I the evolutionary process anywhere. For example a certain number of fishes had to come out of the sea to become the reptile. In the same way in this process when we have to become something superior – […]
H.H. Shri Mataji Nirmala Devi, 1980-0917 Public Program Talk Day 3, Paris, France
Today is the last day in Paris and I’ll try to sum up the subject of Sahaja Yoga as far as possible. (Can you hear over there?) Yesterday I told you about the chakras within us, which are the subtle centres, which are existing. Before understanding the whole subject we must understand the attitude that is going to help us to understand this subtle subject. […]
Significance of Puja – Paris, 20.04.1980
I have told you before also but again today I want to tell you the significance of Puja. The significance is this, that when you do the Puja you recognize Me. By your recognition and your surrendering the deities get happy. They’re overjoyed that you have recognized it. You are fully identified yourself that you are understanding Me in My full form, that you are coming closer to them. And I tell the like elder brothers feel happy when the younger ones are coming to meet. […]

In my last three lectures, I already explained about the residual force called as Kundalini that resides in the triangular bone here [points to the Chakra Chart]. This residual force gives us the second birth.

Yesterday I talked to you about Kundalini awakening, how it is awakened, and why it refuses to be awakened within us. Those who have come for the first time I would like to tell them that we have a force, a germinating force, a residual force within us in this triangular bone which is called as the Kundalini. This is the force which helps us which gives us our second birth called as Self Realization. […]

This is the first center called as Mooladhara center, is the subtle center which manifests outside, in the gross what we call as pelvic plexus. This has got four petals while in the same way the pelvic plexus also has got four sub plexuses. It looks after all our excretory functions. This is like a lotus in the mud of excretion. It looks after the sex activity, but this is innocence. […]

This bone is called sacrum by Greeks. That means “sacred”. And this bone in medical profession is known that in the fire it never gets burnt. But you can see with your own eyes the pulsation in that bone and the pulsation going higher and higher in the backbone. And when it is awakened, you can also hear with the stethoscope the same sound as you hear… like the heart: lub-dub, […]
