Christmas Puja, Ganapatipule (India), 25 December 2003.
Today is a great day because we are celebrating the birth of Jesus Christ. He was such a great spiritual personality, who had to suffer on the cross. This is what many people don’t understand, that why a man of his calibre, of his standing, of his spirituality, should have to go through so many ordeals in life. It is very easy to understand that he was born in a circumstances which was against him, […]
Christmas Puja, Ganapatipule (India), 25 December 2003.
Shivaratri Puja, Pune (India), 16 March 2003.
Shri Mataji is silent for about six minutes before speaking.
Today we are going to worship Shri Shiva, Sadashiva. His quality is that He is forgiveness personified. The amount of forgiveness He has, has helped many of us to exist, otherwise this world would have perished, so many would have been finished because you know what is the condition of human beings. They don’t understand what is wrong, what is right. […]
Inauguration speech for the opening of the new Music Academy (transcr. only English part). Vaitarna (India), 1 January 2003.
I’m sorry I spoke in Hindi language, because to talk about My father in any other language is very difficult, though he was a master of English language and he used to read a lot. He had a big library of his own where I also learned English, because my medium of instruction was Marathi. I’d never studied Hindi or English. […]
New Year’s Eve Puja (English Part of speech). Music Academy of Vaitarna, Bombay (India), 31 December 2002.
I am very, very happy to see so many of you coming down here for the program. Actually I bought this land at least twenty-five years back and could not do any thing about it, as there were lots of objections and this and that. But then somehow I planned the whole thing & it all worked out. [I am] Happy to see you all here that with all the difficulties, […]
Christmas Puja, Ganapatipule (India), 25 December 2002.
Merry Christmas to you all.
According to Sahaja Yoga, Christ is settled on your Agnya Chakra. His whole life is depicting the qualities of a person who is a realised soul. What He has suggested in His own life is that you should not have any greed or lust. The way these days people are greedy all over the world is really shocking. Right from the childhood, our children also learn to ask for this or ask for that; […]
Puja for the 79° Birthday, Delhi (India), 21 March 2002.
I’m telling them about love, all-pervading love of God Almighty. He’s created this whole thing. The whole atmosphere is there. The whole feeling is there of love. But it’s possible only for people who are innocent, like children. If you are very mature in your hatred, no one can save you. You’ll have ten arguments to show that your hatred is justifiable. Then you’ll go to any extent to justify it. […]
New Year’s Eve Puja, Kalwe (India), 31 December 2001.
(Hindi speech in PDF)
I’m telling them that how a Sahaja Yogi should feel. You should be satisfied people. Firstly and foremost you have to be satisfied. You just see within yourself if you are satisfied or not. You’ve got the highest that you wanted, you have got the peace, you’ve got the joy, and all the blessings of the Divine. Despite that, if you are dissatisfied, […]
New Year Puja, Kalwe, India. 31 December 2000.
Now, we are starting a New Year, and I wish you all a very happy and prosperous New Year.
In this wish of Mine I also wish you a very deep growth in Sahaja Yoga. (Applause)
Now you all are Sahaja Yogis and you all have to become masters in Sahaja Yoga. For becoming masters in Sahaja Yoga I am sure you are doing meditation, […]
Christmas puja. Ganapatipule (India), 25 December 2000.
I’m sorry I had to speak in Hindi language, because most of the people who are here are understanding Hindi only. When I am abroad, all the time I am speaking English, nothing else but English language and then I want to have some change for a while.
Regarding today’s great advent of Shri Jesus Christ, I told them that He came on this Earth with a very great mission; […]
Birthday Puja. Delhi (India), 21 March 2000.
I’m so very filled with joy and My heart is so full of gratitude for all the Sahaja Yogis who have been able to create this beautiful place. I cannot imagine how much they must have been worked hard in such a place, to create such a beautiful area, such a blissful place. How in Sahaja Yoga, people worked together with tremendous love and respect with each other, have produced something that it unbelievable! […]
Shivaratri Puja, Pune, India, 5 March 2000.
First, I’ll speak in English language, because we have so many people from foreign countries, and especially from Madras (Chennai) and also from Kerala, Hyderabad and Bangalore. All these people have come here, and I don’t know what other people are here, who have come from South and who do not yet understand Hindi language.
This Shivaratri has a special meaning, I think, because there is so much – if you read any newspaper in the morning, […]
Birthday puja (Hindi). New Delhi (India), 21 March 1999.
(English starts here)
I have told them in Hindi language that love, you can see one person’s love manifested in so many eyes here. And when I saw the enthusiasm also My heart got filled with great love, greater love.
So one can see how powerful is this love. All kinds of bad feelings, negative thinking and also self-destructive elements can be corrected and controlled very simply in Sahaja Yoga, […]
Shri Siva puja. Delhi (India), 14 February 1999.
Today we have assembled here to do the puja of Shri Maha Deva – Shri Shiv Shankara. Because of Adi Shankaracharya’s emphasis people have taken up the Puja of Shiva in a big way. In Southern India two sects have come up: one is Shaivites and the other is Vaishnavites. Shaivites are the worshippers of Lord Shiva and the Vaishnavites are those who worship Lord Vishnu. In our country we are very expert in dividing ourselves. […]
New Year’s eve Puja (English and Hindi part). Kalve (India), 31 December 1998.
Firstly I will speak in English language as we have many Sahaja Yogis from abroad. They have asked me to talk about Indian culture today because Bombay is the place where Indian culture is disappearing, that’s what they say. But I don’t think so, because the roots are so deep that we cannot give up that culture so fast.
Now as it is for the people who are coming from other countries, […]
Christmas Puja. Ganapatipule (Maharashtra, India), 24 December 1998.
First, I’ll speak in English and then in Hindi.
Today, long time back, Christ was born. You all know the story of His birth, and of all the sufferings He had to go through. He’s the One who has given us the model of Sahaja Yoga. For He didn’t live for Himself, in no way, but He lived for others, working out the Agnya Chakra.
You may be Divine, […]
“Expression of Five Elements on a Sahaja Yogi”. Delhi (India), 16 December 1998.
I have been telling them that the style of Indian knowledge is very different from the Western mind. In the West, you see, if you say something, then they want to have an experimental approval. They will go to the scientists or to other people who are equipped with knowledge to know what they said in these books is true or not. They will even judge Christ. […]
75th Birthday Felicitation Program. Delhi (India), 20 March 1998.
I bow to all the seekers of truth.
So much has been said and really my heart is full of gratitude for all of you to come here, all the way, and the way people have described about Sahaja Yoga. To understand Sahaja Yoga, we should know where are we today in this Kali Yuga. What are we facing today? It should really make you feel quite disturbed to see the way things are going on in every country, […]
Shakti Puja. Kalwe (India), 31 December 1997.
Today we have gathered to do Puja of the Shakti. Shakti means all the Shaktis and not any one special Shakti. All these Shaktis are situated on all our chakras and without these Shaktis no work of the Devtas can be carried out. Like you know that the Shakti of Krishna is Radha and Ram’s Shakti is Sita, Vishnu’s is Laxmi. So in the same way the abode of the Shaktis is with the devtas. […]
Christmas Puja. Ganapatipule (India), 25 December 1997.
I’m sorry I had to talk in Hindi language because most of the people are, here, Indians. Some of them are Marathis and others are from the north of India.
I was telling them about Christ, what was his power. His power was of love and not of anger, because he is the one who has crossed the most difficult centre of Agya.
Those people who have ego never realise they have ego. […]
Birthday Puja. Delhi (India), 21 March 1997.
[first part of the talk, in Hindi]
I have to tell you thank you very much for this celebration, for all these beautiful balloons; but, looking at these balloons, we have to also see some of them who have lost their air completely. This is another problem we face in the West because to have ego itself, according to the Western culture, is a very great achievement. And when we start living with our ego I know how one looks like. […]
Shivaratri Puja (English part), Delhi (India), 16 March 1997.
First, I speak in Hindi language and then in English. We are such a cosmopolitan people that I don’t know what language to take to.
[Shri Mataji speaks in Hindi]
I am talking to them about Shiva’s worship – what should happen to you. But today, I am going to tell you about the internal happening within us when you get your realization. There are eleven rudras placed here – eleven rudras. […]
Shri Kartikeya Puja (Transcript of English talk). Mumbai (India), 21 December 1996.
[Shri Mataji speaks in Marathi for about 45 minutes]
I am sorry, I had to speak in Marathi language because I had to tell them something which I don’t want you to know (Laughter).
Today is a great day, I should say in a way, because I am going to tell you one thing great. That is Shri Gyaneshwara – in Marathi they call it ‘Dnyaneshwara’ […]
1994-12-31 Shri Ganesha Puja Kalwe
Today I’m talking about Shri Ganesha. Now we’ll be parting we will be going to our own country and I must congratulate you the way you have come up to the expectations of Shri Ganesha. I’m very happy with you people. I wish Indians would learn a lesson from you that you are the people who don’t have this tradition; you don’t have Shri Ganesha established there. Still somehow you have come up to such a level that I feel very proud of you and all of them should learn a lesson from you. […]
Mahashivaratri Puja. Delhi (India), 14 March 1994.
It’s a great pleasure that from all over the world people have gathered to worship Shiva. Actually we should say it is Sadashiva that we are going to worship today. As you know the difference between Sadashiva and Shri Shiva. Sadashiva is the God Almighty and He is a witness of the play of the Primordial Mother.
The combination between Sadashiva and the Primordial Mother Adi Shakti is just like a moon and the moonlight or the sun or the sunlight. […]
Talk to Sahaja Yogis, Madras 1994-01-17
[Translation in PDF]
[Transcript Scanned from Divine Cool Breeze]
Today we are lost in the Shabad Jalam We say mantras, we read books, there are Shaivaites and Vaishnavities. All these things to us have been important also because we thought by following these methods, we will achieve our moksha, our last goal. This way I must say that Indians are very alert and basically spiritually minded. They also know what is wrong and what is good. […]
Shri Mahalaxmi Puja, The Universal Love, Kalwe, India (1992-1230)
[Shri Mataji speaks English]
आता मराठीत बोललं पाहिजे, कारण पुष्कळ लोकांना इंग्लिश भाषा समजत नाही. काही हरकत नाही, इंग्लिश भाषेत काही राम नाहीये. मराठी भाषेसारखी भाषा नाही. आणि परत आत्म्याचं ज्ञान घ्यायला मराठी भाषा आहे. आणि इतकं संतसाधूंनी इथे कार्य केलंय, नाथपंथीयांचंच आम्ही कार्य करतो आहे कुंडलिनीचं. पण सांगायचं असं कि मराठी भाषा जरी फार उच्च दशेला असली आणि महाराष्ट्रात सर्व विश्वाची कुंडलिनी असूनसुद्धा महाराष्ट्रीयन लोकांचं डोकं मात्र आजकाल उलटं बसलेलं आहे ते कशाने ते मला माहित आहे. […]
Shri Ganesha Puja. Kalwe (India), 31 December 1991.
[Marathi transcript missing]
I’ve been telling them about Shri Ganesha, how important it is to worship Shri Ganesh. Now, you know through photographs and all that – that it’s a living deity, and it is on Mooladhara. He is actually the chancellor of all the universities, I would say, in the sense that He is sitting on all the chakras. Without Him, nothing can work out, because He is the one who is holiness. […]
लक्ष्मी पूजा – अलिबाग (भारत) १९९१
(श्री माताजींचे स्वागत गीत)
माँ का नाम अति मिठा है, कोई गाके देख ले | माँ का नाम अति मिठा है, कोई गाके देख ले ||
आ जाती है माँ कोई, बुलाके देख ले | माँ का नाम अति मिठा है, कोई गाके देख ले |

Shri Ganesha and Christmas Puja. Ganapatipule (India), 24 December 1991.
[Talk in Hindi]
In short, I told them what is so special about today, tonight, is the time when, this is Tuesday, on Tuesday Shri Ganesha was born. So they celebrate every fourth day of the moon as the Shri Ganesha’s birth date because He was born on the fourth. But when this fourth falls on a Tuesday then they think it’s a tremendous yoga, because on Tuesday He was born. […]
Shri Mahalakshmi Puja. Kolhapur (India), 21 December 1991.
I am in a dilemma what language I should speak to you all. First I’ll speak in English, then in Hindi, then in Marathi. (Laughter)
We all have come here to Kolhapur to worship the Mahalakshmi.
And you all know about the importance of Mahalakshmi. That Sushumna Nadi is the channel for Mahalakshmi. But this principle of Mahalakshmi is only possible to manifest in us when our principle of Lakshmi is satisfied. […]
Shri Ganesha Puja. Pune (India), 15 December 1991.
Today we are really sitting in very close relationship with the nature.
The whole thing, as you can see very clearly, is done by villagers and in a very simple way and I’m sure you must all be enjoy-ing it very much.
Today being the first puja in Maha-rastra, we have to do Ganesha Puja, but one has to understand how it is so impor-tant in Maharastra that people worship Ganesha. […]
Shri Mahalakshmi Puja. Kolhapur (Maharashtra-India), Hindi Talk, 21 December 1990.
This way the three and a half shakthi (Kundalini) is residing in Maharashtra, and also the Shri Chakra is residing here.
All of you know that in the central path resides Mahalakshmi and also the Kundalini is awakened in the central path. For thousands of years in this Mahalakshmi temple it is recited (chanted) UDO UDO AMBE to awaken the Amba Kundalini and the kundalini shakthi in Mahalakshmi gets awakened. […]
India Tour Puja. Shrirampur (India), 12 December 1990.
We have come to this place with the idea that we’ll be comfortable in the other place as we were before, but you must have known that there’s a man who is quite devilish, and he has tried to make this funny arrangement just to extract some money from us for doing nothing.
What I have to tell you, that we should remember that when we are doing right in this Krita Yuga, […]
Puja in Pune (extracts), India, 3 December 1990.
So, welcome to all the Sahaja Yogis from abroad. So we start from today our Maharashtra Tour, which you can see is full of these hills and dales. Also, the atmosphere is going to be extremely rustic. Of course the comforts of this place have not been up to the mark, but next year it will be much better, I’m sure. We have decided to purchase even this plot of land, […]
Shri Surya puja. Kalwe (India), 14 January 1990.
Today is the day for us to celebrate in India very much. Because the Sun is now in Capricorn and from Capricorn it then comes to Tropic of Cancer. When the Sun comes back to this Earth then all the creativity of mother earth starts acting and she creates such beautiful things like flowers, nice nourishing things and fulfilling things like fruits and she makes our eyes cool down with the greenery she has and the way she blesses us is manifold with the advent of the Sun. […]
Puja at Ganapatipule. Ganapatipule (India), 7 January 1990.
I’m sorry today for being late, but actually I was ready and all this police case, this, that, I tell you, unnecessary waste of time. It had to be this time.
In India we believe that God Himself takes incarnations with His Vishnu principle, whenever there is the decline of righteousness, and tries to elevate. Every incarnation has done lot of work – [ Shri Mataji speaks aside in Hindi] – and have done also work within ourselves. […]
Now you see the western culture is coming so fast on your head and also another thing is that today low-level creations are coming, do you understand that part like dramas, like cinemas, like books so many also newspapers, very low level they are. Now what should we do about it, one way is to criticize them, but we don`t want to take that position (risk). Then what should be our attitude? What can we do? […]
Brahmapuri Puja. Brahmapuri (India), 30 December 1989.
I’m sorry what has happened yesterday, but I think the war has begun between the evil and good, and after all the good prevails. In these modern times, evil used to prevail over good but now in this Kruta Yuga the evil will be completely conquered by good, and not that but good will spread all over (applause JAI!). The evil has the capacity to go to extremes and then to fall out of the evolutionary process completely, […]
Puja Talk, Brahmapuri (India), 20 December 1988.
Place, which we call as Brahmapuri here called, perhaps, may be because here Shri Ramadasa, the guru of Shivaji Maharaj, in these deep waters found the statue of Shri Rama, Sita, Lakshmana and Hanumana together. Then they were carried from here and put in a temple called Chapar, the place where I saw that also. And there we have Hanumanas. Eleven Hanumanas came out of the Mother Earth to say that he was the incarnation of Hanumana. […]
Puja Talk at India Tour. Pune (India), 17 December 1988.
So now welcome to you all for this Puna place. In the Shastras is described as Punya Patana, meaning the city of Punyas. That’s the reason I wanted to stay in Puna, thinking that people are very auspicious and full of punyas, and I am sure I’ll find them very soon, all those who have come to this place will be there available for Sahaja Yoga. […]
Adi Shakti Puja, “Detachment”, Rahuri (India), 11 December 1988.
The Puja has to start when it has to start. I’ve been waiting and waiting and waiting, then I realised that today was a very good time according to the calendar; but it is not in the morning, so it had to be the third day of the moon and as the moon is changing its phases in the day time, we had to wait till it started. […]
Birthday Puja, Mumbai (India), 21 March 1988.
I have told them, in Marathi language because most of them are Maharashtrians here, that in every part of the country one has to work hard and one has to spread Sahaja Yoga with complete dedication and understanding. That today is the day for us to achieve that power, to absorb that power by which we are going to spread Sahaja Yoga all over the world.
It’s you who can enlighten other people. […]
Puja Talk, India Tour. Ganapatipule (India), 6 January 1988.
It is said that God is Satchitanand. He is truth, He is attention and He is joy. In Sahaja Yoga, first you have discovered the truth. Discover the truth on your fingertips. The truth that you can discover on your central nervous system is the truth. First you discover the truth and you can tell about it, talk about, explain about it but you cannot give it to others unless and until the other person gets Realization. […]
Ganapatipule Seminar, India Tour. Ganapatipule (India), 5 January 1988.
From yesterday’s programme, and all these days, you must have realised that to get your Kundalini working out, to get Her rush towards the Sahastrara and to widen your Sushumna Nadi it is not necessary that you should sit for meditation for three to five hours. Of course, you must meditate for a short time because that is at a point where you are alone, one with your God. […]
Idea to start Yuva Shakti, Ganapatipule (India), 4 January 1988.
Mr. Pradhan is a very humble person. He didn’t tell you, that we have started a, I mean, he actually brought the idea to start a, another subsidiary you can call it, or whichever way you may say, another parallel movement, called as “Yuva Shakti”. Which is meant for the young people in Sahaja Yoga. For their guidance, for their expression, and for their dedication. And, […]
Talk on New Year’s Day, Ganapatipule (India), 1 January 1988.
Happy New Year to you all!
May God bless you this year with all His divine powers. May all the choicest flowers of joy and happiness be showered upon you. May God give you wisdom to become great Sahaja Yogis, so that a new world can be created beautifully out of you.
Very happy to meet you all today here. First day, I am sure there must have been lots of inconveniences. […]
