Also, its called as [Veeda?] from where the word Vedas come from. Also, the word “Gna” as “GN” used in Sanskrit language means the knowledge – […]

Public Program Victoria Hall, Geneva (Switzerland)

Public Program. Victoria Hall, Geneva (Switzerland), 8 July 1994.

At the very outset I have to tell you that truth is what it is. You cannot mold it, you cannot change it. It is always the same. It has been the same, it is the same, it will be the same. But to say that we know the truth and that we have the truth is really a self-deception. If you had known the absolute truth there would have been no problems and everybody would have said the same thing. […]

Shri Ganesha Puja, Les Diablerets (Switzerland), 8 August 1989.
Today you have come here to worship me as Shri Ganesha. We have been singing the praise of Shri Ganesha before every puja. And we have such tremendous respect for Shri Ganesh, because we have found out that unless and until Shri Ganesha, who is the symbol of our innocence, is not awakened within us, we cannot enter into the Kingdom of God.

As I told you yesterday that we have to know the truth on our central nervous system. That is why in every scripture it is written that you are to be born again. You are to be born again, in the sense, a happening has to take place within you, and this happening should give you the self knowledge.

Attitude of seeking Geneva (Switzerland)

Public Program, Geneva (Switzerland), 5 October 1987.

As I told you, these are modern times. And in modern times this en masse-realisation was to take place. That was to happen. In modern times only, when people get frustrated, when they get lost, they don’t know what to do, when they are deceived and cheated, then they start looking for something that is the support. This attitude of seeking was never before so much as it is today. […]

Today we are celebrating in Switzerland the coronation of Shri Rama on Dassera Day. Many things happened on Dassera Day. The most important was that Shri Rama was coronated as a king on this day.

Shri Mataji: To see so many Sahaja Yogis assembled here, I’m sure the devil must have run away long time back.

And the caravan must have left but I hope we are aware of it and we forget about our fears of our catches, […]

All great Incarnations are just one Geneva (Switzerland)

Public Program. Geneva (Switzerland), 13 June 1985.

I bow to all the seekers of truth.

We are here to know about the truth. First through our mental understanding and then through our experience, to prove everything that you have heard so far. But the minds are very conditioned.

The Truth Has Two Sides Geneva (Switzerland)

Public Program day 1. Geneva (Switzerland), 11 June 1985.

I bow to all the seekers of truth.

But the truth has two sides: the illusion that we see can look like truth, and the essence of the illusion also may appear to be truth.

Today we have a new generation of people what we call the people who are seekers. These are some special category who are seeking something beyond. They are seeking the truth as they say.

Shri Ganesha Puja, Riffelberg (Switzerland), 2 September 1984.

My Joy knows no bounds when we have come to worship this holy mountain which we have named as GANARAJ. Sometimes the words are not sufficient to hold the outpour of your Joy.

I come to you as a symbol of your Mother, but the first son who was created was Shri Ganesh. And then, when the Mother Earth was created as a symbol of motherhood, She created many Shri Ganeshas in this universe. […]

Count your Blessings every moment Hotel Riffelberg, Zermatt (Switzerland)

“Count your Blessings every moment” (talk before musical evening). Riffelberg (Switzerland), 1 September 1984.

Only about an hour back I was telling that perhaps the Sahaja Yogis don’t realise, even materially’, how Divine is looking after them. And what are they’ doing about it ?

They have so many, still, many identifications, and they are not fully identified with the Divine, that Divine is so much identified with you. This is definitely such a great miracle, […]

These are special times, we must understand, when there are thousands of people who are feeling the urge to seek beyond. […]

At the human level we try to seek Truth through our mental projection Geneva (Switzerland)

Public Programme Day 1. Geneva (Switzerland), 28 August 1984.

I bow to all the seekers of Truth.

I’m sorry, I could not come yesterday and I hope today we’ll be able to do something for ourselves.

When we talk of Truth, we have to know that at the human level we try to seek Truth through our mental projection or through our emotional understanding. The other day I met the president of the Jungian Society in America and he told Me that he was sitting on a cut trunk of a tree and he just thought that, […]

Private conversation in Founex ashram, 1984

Shri Mataji: The situation is the same as I have in my house [with so many flowers].All right, now you sit down. So, today I was explaining, in my bedroom, to some of the Sahaja Yogis how this universe is created. And they said, “You should tell about his to us, in the evening”. But, after diner, most are in digestion, is it worth it? Carol wanted to show off the watch that my children have given me. […]

The basis of Kathak dance and Indian music

Guru Puja: The State of Guru Grand Hotel Leysin (Leysin American Schools), Leysin (Switzerland)

Guru Puja, Leysin (Switzerland), 14 July 1984.

I bow to all the sahaja yogis of the world. It is very heartening to see so many of you assembled here to do the Guru Puja.

To worship your Guru in person is regarded as the highest blessing. But in My case it’s a very different combination that I am your Mother and your Guru.

So you can understand how Shri Ganesha worshipped his Mother. You all are created in the same image of Shri Ganesha who worshipped His Mother and then He became the Adi Guru, […]

I Bow to all the seekers of Truth

Within us lies the truth, it is said in all the scriptures, where does it lie? Nobody has told so far exactly where it lies.

Talk to New Sahaja Yogis: Now you are not there where you were Tannay (Switzerland)

1983-08-31 Talk to New Sahaja Yogis

[27:57] And once you have found the lamp and have lightened it then you don’t have to use a lamp to see that, do you?  That lamp itself gives light.  So this must be understood logically that now you are not there where you were.  That you are at a different level and accept all the transformations as reality.  And don’t live in the past or in your imagination.  As I have told many a times a that supposing a beggar is made a king, […]

The roots of human beings Geneva (Switzerland)

Public Program day 2. Geneva (Switzerland), 30 August 1983.

I bow to all the seekers of truth. Yesterday we saw the general aspect of Sahaja Yoga and how these modern times are connected to the future and to the past, because if it is a living process of evolution then it is a continuous process intermittent with transformations. But we human beings believe that whatever we achieve through our mental projection is the transformation. For example, […]

Shri Mataji Nirmala Devi talking to the Sahaja yogis during an Entertainment Program, Switzerland

Shri Mataji: And the road …Yogi: Mother, actually this place is colder …I am also impressedShri Mataji: That’s what I say, it’s a fact. And the street which has a cool breeze.

Today we are here at this moment and we have to look at every problem in relation to this time. The understanding of consciousness has to be understood in all its aspect, and at this period of complete integration it is easy to relate it to every movement of our mind. […]

Shri Krishna Puja: The Ultimate Of The Fatherhood Tannay Ashram, Tannay (Switzerland)

Shri Krishna Puja, Tannay (Switzerland), 28 August 1983.
Today we are celebrating here, in this holy land the birthday of Shri Krishna.
Shri Krishna is the ultimate of the fatherhood that I described you before, who came on this Earth and illustrated the ultimate of that. So, on this Earth, the highest fatherhood is Shri Krishna’s awareness. But in the Kingdom of God, we can say in the Heavens, or even above everything else, resides Sadashiva who does not take incarnations. […]

Talk to Sahaja Yogis Lausanne (Switzerland)

Talk to Sahaja Yogis, Lausanne (Switzerland), 25 August 1983.

… Even when you get your realisation you are sometimes in a growing stage up to a point. Like you’re nourished by the Mother Earth all the time but you’re not aware of it. In the same way the womb of Sahaja Yoga nourishes you to grow up into beautiful beings. Still you have to come up to a point when it has to click in such a way that you start feeling the awareness of that unbounding love. […]
