Public Program and Impressions, Evening Natura Artis Magistra, Amsterdam (Holland)

Public Program in Hindi, Artis, Amsterdam, 31st July 1994, Translation
I bow to all the seekers of truth. First of all you should know that truth is what it is. You cannot change it. You cannot describe it. And the biggest thing to understand is that it cannot have any kind of reconciliation, or compromise with untruth. Truth is absolute. It cannot be different. People talk of different things, there is definitely something wrong there. So one should know first what this truth is. […]

Afternoon, Interview with Hindustan TV station Varikstraat Ashram, Amsterdam (Holland)

Interview with Hindustan TV station, Varikstraat Ashram, Amsterdam, 31st July 1994, Translation
Q: Shri Mataji, can you give your introduction in short?
Shri Mataji: Introduction is such that, I belong to the family Shalivahanas. Both my father and mother were great disciples of Gandhiji. And my father was a member of the Constituent Assembly and also the parliament. My mother was honours in mathematics. I have a brother who is a cabinet minister. But spiritually it was my parents who recognised me, […]

Public Program NH Amsterdam Grand Hotel Krasnapolsky, Amsterdam (Holland)

Public program at Hotel Krasnapolski, 1994 Amsterdam
I bow to all the seekers of truth. At the very outset, you have to know that truth is what it is. You cannot change it. You cannot describe it. Unfortunately, at this human awareness you cannot know it. Moreover, truth is not going to compromise with anything. (Aside: speaking everyday makes your throat…) Now the… whatever I am going to tell you, you have not to take it for granted; […]

Public Program NH Amsterdam Grand Hotel Krasnapolsky, Amsterdam (Holland)

Public Program, Hotel Krasnapolsky, Amsterdam, 16th July 1993
I bow to all the seekers of truth. At the very outset, I have to tell you that truth is what it is. We cannot change it, we cannot transform it, we cannot conceptualise it. Truth has to be known, through our evolutionary process, on our central nervous system. It has to be tangible. When we are seeking the truth, we have to know what we have to seek. […]

Public Program Day 2 Kunstcentrum Artemis, Amsterdam (Holland)

Public Program, Second Evening, Artemis, Amsterdam, 2nd July 1992
At the very outset we have to know that truth is what it is. We cannot change it, we cannot conceptualise it and also, at this human level, we cannot feel it. That means at (the level of) human awareness, we have to humbly accept that we have not reached that stage where our awareness can feel the truth. Once we realise that something more has to be done, […]

Public Program Day 1 Kunstcentrum Artemis, Amsterdam (Holland)

Public Program, First Evening, Artemis, Amsterdam, 1st July 1992
I bow to all the seekers of truth. At the very outset one has to know that truth is what it is. You cannot change it. You cannot conceptualise it. You have to accept it as it is. Unfortunately, at the human level you cannot know the truth. You have to become the Spirit. It is not just saying that you have to be the Spirit, but you have to become. […]

Public Program Day 2, Evening Natura Artis Magistra, Amsterdam (Holland)

Public Program, Second Evening, The Koningszaal, Artis, Amsterdam, 2nd August 1991
I bow to all the seekers of truth.
Yesterday I told you that truth cannot be felt at human awareness, and that the truth is that you are the pure Spirit. In the evolutionary process you have become a human being, but there is a little growth needed in your awareness where you become the Spirit. To start that growth you have to awaken a power within you which we call the Kundalini. […]

Talk to Dutch Sahaja Yogis, Afternoon Zaandam, Zaandam Ashram (Holland)

Shri Mataji Speaks to the Dutch Yogis, Zaandam, 2nd August 1991.
18:00
Everyone was allowed to greet Shri Mataji in person. Mother received lots of flowers, the Dutch translation of the Ascent and a table-cloth, embroidered by the Dutch ladies. She showed the children how to make paper airplanes.
So I have to congratulate you all for coming to Sahaj Yoga in Holland. It’s very important. (Waiting for some people who still have to arrive) So it’s nice to see really so many people in Holland, […]

Public Program Day 1 Natura Artis Magistra, Amsterdam (Holland)

Public Program, First Evening, The Koningszaal, Artis, Amsterdam, 1st August 1991
I bow to all the seekers of truth. At the very outset I have to say that truth is where it is. It is what it is. We cannot change it, transform it or conceptualise it. Also, unfortunately, we cannot know it at the level of this human awareness. We have to become that subtler being which we call the Spirit. Otherwise it is not possible to feel the truth. […]

Public Program and Shri Mataji working on Seekers (video) Kunstcentrum Artemis, Amsterdam (Holland)

Public Program in the Koningszaal, Artis, Amsterdam, 15th July 1988
NOTE: Sri Mataji travelled by car from Belgium to Holland with the Belgian yogis who lost their way and went into Rotterdam instead of Amsterdam. When they finally arrived at the programme in Amsterdam, the local yogis had explained everything and then started giving realisation.
Just as they got to the Sahastrara chakra, Sri Mataji entered the hall.
Sri Mataji: “I think already some of you have got your realisation. […]

Public Program, Evening NH Amsterdam Grand Hotel Krasnapolsky, Amsterdam (Holland)

Public Programme in Hotel Krasnapolski, Amsterdam, 9th October 1987
I bow to all the seekers of truth.
As I have been telling before, we cannot conceive the idea of truth. It cannot be a conception of human beings. It has to be felt on your central nervous system. As you can see me with your eyes and can feel me, you should be able to feel the truth. There are many wrong ideas prevalent about the truth. […]

Talk to Sahaja Yogis, How To Be Respected, Leadership The Hague (Holland)

Talk to Sahaja Yogis, How To Be Respected, Leadership and Administration,The Hague (Holland), September 17th, 1986

Now. (Hindi aside)

So. Now to, you see, to influence other people we must know how much control we have upon ourselves also; that’s very important.

For example, some people, you see, have no proper image and they try to influence others, so it’s a mockery. Nobody gets influenced by such a person who himself has no image of his own. […]

Public Program Hotel Gouden Wieken, The Hague (Holland)

Public Program, Hotel “De Gouden Wieken”, The Hague, Holland, 16th September 1986
In these days of turmoil and chaos, we feel we are waiting for some sort of a big shock and maybe that our last days will appear in our life time. When we think only from the human limitations, this is quite justified. But we are not created by ourselves, nor have we become human beings by ourselves. From amoeba to this stage we have come, […]

Bhoomi Puja (known as Trigunatmika Puja), Overvoorde: Holland is the Holy Land. Overvoorde (Netherlands) 5 July 1985

Are, you can open the window a little bit, I think. It will be better. One window will do. They are all closed. One window you can. They are opened as much as they will, Shri Mataji. Really? That’s all that can be opened? They have all arrived, so we’ll wait for two minutes for them. Tell them to come from the other side. […]

(Yogi finishes the introduction in Dutch)

I bow to all the seekers of truth.

Yesterday in My lecture and afterwards, the impression I got about Holland, I must tell you very frankly. And you shouldn’t mind, because I am a Holy Mother. […]

Interview for “Het Binnenhof” Newspaper Conferentieoord Overvoorde, Rijswijk (Holland)

Interview journalist; “Het Binnenhof” Newspaper, Overvoorde, The Hague, Holland, 4th July 1985
Shri Mataji: The man who was here. He has been to all these fake gurus. He has seen all that nonsense. He has seen everything. It is very easy for him to see me now, because you see if you have not been to all these then you start… you cannot understand it so well. So that’s a very big point about it.
G: He said there is a book called Spiritual Superman. […]

Sri Mataji: I hope I didn’t hurt anyone.
Journalist: And I liked to read it and to see what it is because I am interested in such things.
Sri Mataji: Yes, one should be. Very important! […]

Public Program Day 1 Het Nederlands Congresgebouw (World Forum), The Hague (Holland)

First Public Programme in Holland, Het Congressgebouw, The Hague, Holland, 3rd July 1985

I bow to all the seekers of truth.
I’m very sorry for being late today because they miscalculated the time that it will take to reach this place.
We are talking about truth. Truth that we know of cannot be conceptualised, cannot be mentally understood. We have to know that truth is beyond mental conception. If we believe that this piece is hot, […]
