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? […]
Public Program 2001-10-23
Navaratri Puja. Loutraki (Greece), 21 October 2001.
Today we have gathered here to do the Devi Puja. This Puja was performed many a times 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 (strange) situation; that there are people who are themselves devils, I think, – and also (people who are) mesmerised by them – who are trying to do something which they should never have done. […]
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, […]
Visit in Greece
From Natalie: 1994 – Shri Mataji visited Greece for a week, right after the Diwali puja in Istanbul, Turkey

Public Program, 1993-04-28, Greece
[introduction in Greek]
[Shri Mataji speaks from min 25:24]
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 and we cannot have ideas about it. It was and it is and it will be, it is eternal. And Truth is Divine Love.
There is one truth about you is that you are not this body, […]
Interview on a Greek TV with Vagianatos, Athens (Greece), April 27th, 1993
Interviewer: Good evening, it is very strong feeling that so many times we are in another country although we are in this country. Tonight we have the opportunity of really make a long travel. A long travel in wisdom, in distance, in space, in our hearts, in truth. This is all the elements that are concentrated in the presence of a Holy Mother that we have invited here, […]
Short Interview on TV, Athens, Greece, 1993-04-27
Sahaja Yoga means: “Saha” means “with”; “ja” means “born with”. So it is a right; every human being has got to be in union -that is Yoga- with the Divine Power. And it’s within yourself “Sahaj”, born with you spontaneous.
[Cut in the video]
Journalist: Explain to us what is Kundalini?
Shri Mataji: Kundalini, as I told you, is the reflection of the Primordial Mother within us. And she is individually everybody’ […]
Shri Pallas Athena Puja. Athens (Greece), 26 April 1993.
It’s a very great day for Me to see so many Sahaja Yogis here who are from this country, Greece. When first I came to Greece, I told my husband that this country is full of vibrations and there have been many evolved souls in this country, but perhaps the people have lost their heritage, but the vibrations are in the atmosphere and one day Sahaja Yoga should prosper here very much. […]
Talk to Sahaja Yogis, Athens, Greece, April 25th, 1993
Sahaja Yogi: We are working very hard there, all of them are working very hard for your coming here, Mother.
Shri Mataji: Very sweet of you.
Sahaja Yogi: With a lot of love.
Shri Mataji: Very sweet of you really. Because there are so many seekers in Greece, I was sure about it. You have to tap the real people. And all these false Gurus did not come here, […]
Arrival conversation in Athens, 25/04/1993
2:47 [To a baby] How are you? He’s brought so many Sahaja Yogis.
Shri Mataji: So many are here, so many Greeks here. It’s a great promess to Me.
Greece should be the first country in Europe which should take to Sahaja Yoga.
Because Greece is a – I mean it has a heritage, same heritage [as Indians]. And we have to give them faith in their heritage now. […]
Shri Lakshmi Puja. Hydra (Greece), 24 June 1990 .
Today we are going to celebrate the Puja of Lakshmi And I’ve already told you that Lakshmi came out of the sea.
And Greece is the Nabhi of the universe. And whatever Lakshmi they have got, wealth, they have got it out of the sea faring activities there. So it is very apt that we should worship Lakshmi in Greece and understand what is the significance of Lakshmi is. […]
H.H. Shri Mataji Nirmala Devi, 1990-0621 Public Program 2, Athens, Greece.
I bow to all the Seekers of Truth. Yesterday I told you what is the truth is. Truth is that you are the spirit and that there is an All Pervading Power, which does all the living work and looks after you also.

Public Program Day 1, Greece, 1990-06-20
[introduction in Greek]
[Shri Mataji speaks from minute 3:53]
I bow to all the seekers of truth.
At the very outset we have to know that truth is what it is and we cannot treat nor can we understand it through this human awareness.
But what is the truth? The truth is we are not this body, we are not these emotions, we are not this intellect, we are not our conditioning or our ego but we are pure Spirit. […]
Public Programme Athens, Greece, May 25, 1989
Shri Mataji: All right. Yesterday they spoke to you about the different centres we have within ourselves. These subtle centres were discovered thousands of years back by great saints. And Socrates also has talked about the gods which reside within us. And the knowledge about it was existent long time back. But there were two types of seeking going on alongside – two types of seeking. One was the devotion on the left hand side, […]
Shri Pallas Athena Puja. Greece, 24 May 1989.
Everything in Sahaja Yoga is very scientific, is all pre-planned I think, and is all significant. For example, today is Wednesday and we have never had any Puja on a Wednesday because I was born on Wednesday.
So I was thinking if the Puja starts before twelve o’clock we’ll be able to manage it because I was born at twelve. So every child has to sleep after twelve o’clock, […]
Public Program Day 1, Hotel Grande Bretagne, Athens (Greece)
500 years before Christ, the great master Socrates [UNCLEAR in your country] told the whole world that we have to know ourselves. And he was wisdom personified. But he was killed. He didn’t do any harm. He just told everyone for their benevolence. He didn’t live for himself. And he lived for others. He did not take any money from anyone for his knowledge nor did he punish anyone but he was punished. […]
Radio Interview, The Innate Religion
Athens, Stamatis Boudouris house (Greece) 23/05/1989
Starts at 1:08
….Inside. Because it’s very hot and inside, the house is very small. I hope it works out. You see, I didn’t expected so many people would be coming. So, I think, doesn’t matter, we’ll see about it. But, tonight became so cold inside the room. I was really frozen.
Sahaja Yogi: For us, Shri Mataji, we sat all day in the sunlight a nd we don’t feel hot or anything. […]
