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.
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, […]
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, […]
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, […]
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, […]
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. […]
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. […]
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.

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 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, […]
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. […]
