Puja in Ealing Ashram, London (UK) 30th August 2002
I don’t know what to say! (laughter)
You are living in this house now and it was very nice because Sahaja Yogis were living here and they enjoyed my stay here. But we have to change and progress – that’s the point is. With every change you must progress otherwise it has no meaning, the change has no meaning.
So now they are thinking that I should now be in the house here. […]
Devi Puja, Burj 2000, Sharjah (United Arab Emirates), April 21st, 2001, (very poor sound)
I didn’t know you were waiting here. But you are now with those great guys [unsure]. But I didn’t know about your program that you were going to be here. And I had to finish something today.It’s all right. I have seen Sahaja Yogis when they have to wait, they are more together, they are more collective and they enjoy much more. […]
Devi Shakti Puja, “America and Ego”. New York (USA), 8 October 1995.
I am so very happy to see so many Sahaja Yogis are here now in America. And the program we have had the other day showed us clearly that Sahaja Yoga is getting very popular and the way people got their realization in five minutes also showed that now we have touched that area of seekers who are honest and who are of a very high level in spirituality. […]
Shakti Devi Puja. Moscow (Russia), 17 Septembre 1995.
I am sorry, I was little late today, but I am sure you must have enjoyed each other and the [MAYBE company]. Enjoyment of collectivity is very great. Once it happened, I was going to some place and the plane was very late and I was little worried that I’ll be reaching late there. But actually the plane was so late that I reached after seven hours more. […]
Shakti Puja, Togliatti (Russia), 3 August 1993.
Today it is such a great day for Me to be with you, all again this year. It’s so very joyous and full of fragrance. Today we have decided to have a Puja of Shakti that is the Power, that is the Devi.
You know within us there are many Powers of Mahakali, Mahasaraswati, Mahalakshmi, Kundalini. All these Powers are there for us to ascent. If these Powers are properly used and understood, […]
Shri Devi puja, seminar resort, Sasaima, (Colombia), October the 6th 1992
I’m very happy to be with you all here as if you already know about “sahaj”. Today I must tell you that the Goddess has come nine times on this earth before. And she came – today is the seventh day of her worship, of the nine. And the seventh day is for tremendous activity, tremendous creativity and also for prosperity. And so, it is so coincident that we have the condor for their symbol. […]
Puja in Hyderabad, India. 11 December 1991.
We have today come to this famous place, Hyderabad, which was ruled by Muslim kings, but they were very Indian and they fought also for the independence of India with the British. You know about Tipu Sultan, who was also a realized soul but he was killed.
We have in our country one very big problem and that is, individually we are all great people, but when it comes to collective we don’t know how to live collectively, […]
Shri Gauri Puja, Auckland (New Zealand), 8 April 1991.
Gauri is the mother of Shri Ganesha and She produced Shri Ganesha because She was having a bath, and to protect Her chastity She created Shri Ganesha.
In the same way, Kundalini is the Gauri and we have got Ganesha sitting in the Mooladhara Chakra. So we have Mooladhara as the abode of the Gauri, of Kundalini, and the protection of the Kundalini is done by Shri Ganesha. […]
1991-0405 Short Puja and Talk, Cairns, Queensland, Australia
(Notes: whatever you find in Italic and bold, refers to speech in Marathi language)
Sahaja yogi: Gravity is also one type of energy, isn’t it, Shri Mataji?
Shri Mataji: Of course, in the Feet.
Babamama: In the Feet. Because it is one of the things which balances us, called migraine (n.t. probably Baba Mama meant magnetism). Migraine (n.t. magnetism), migraine is one thing which balances us. Is there any relation between head and the feet? […]
India Tour Puja. Shrirampur (India), 12 December 1990.
First I will speak in English and then in Marathi.
[Shri Mataji speaks in English]
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. […]
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, […]
KUNDALINI PUJA, Date: 5th Feb. 1990, Place: Hyderabad, Type: Puja, Speech: Hindi, Translated to: English
It has been a
great joy to meet you all. And, I did not imagine that there would be
so many Sahaja Yogis in Hyderabad. Hyderabad has a unique quality
that such diverse people have gelled together so well here. This is
quite similar to our Nagpur, where I have seen that different people
from all across India have settled. And that is why people there have
an openness in their sacraments (Sanskaar) and view each other with
much acceptance. […]
Puja at Ganapatipule. Ganapatipule (India), 7 January 1990.
[Shri Mataji arrives and speaks aside:
Shri Mataji: (Marathi: “It’s cool, not hot at all”.) “You’ve got the sari with you?”
Yogi: “Yes, Shri Mataji”.
Shri Mataji: “One sari”. (The yogi says something) Eh?
Yogi: “… whichever one You would like”.
Shri Mataji: “One. And another one belongs to Magdu”. (Marathi: “Ask Magdu about the other sari. Check if he has a sari or not, otherwise we’ll take their one.”) “You might be having their sari maybe.”
Yogi: “Yes, […]
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 on good but now, in this Krita Yuga, the evil will be completely conquered by good, and not only that, but good will spread all over. The evil has the capacity to go to extremes and then to fall out of the evolutionary process completely. […]
Puja in Shrirampur (India), 21 December 1989.
Backwards, those who haven’t got space please move backwards. Be sensible. You all can see Me very well and those who are far away are closer to Me; is a fact. When I say the truth, the Vishnumaya is there. Please be seated. Hello. Uska kya naam? Jenny, you go that side. Don’t sit with men. Must keep a discipline on yourself. Those who are sitting here please move to the left. […]
First puja of India tour ’89, Alibag (India), 17 December 1989.
Welcome to you all.
It has been little bit delayed but just now they have informed Me that the plane is delayed even much more, so I thought it’s better to have the puja now, though the English had told us that they would like to attend from the very beginning. They always get many more pujas, that may be the reason. [Shri Mataji laughs, […]
Devi Puja, “Don’t get frustrated”, Hotel Cumulus Kaisaniemi, Helsinki (Finland), 17 August 1989
Here we are in Finland and hell, competing with itself a little bit because it’s the end of the line. All the problems come and settle in the end. And that’s how we see here that there are lots of negative forces that have been working very nicely, and also there are so many seekers. So, it’s more of an attraction for them to come here and attack the seekers. […]
Shri Devi Puja, “The Essence of Self Respect”. Istanbul (Turkey), 27 May 1989.
I’ve been desiring all the time that I should go to Turkey or Tunisia where there could be an entry into the Islamic world, because they have been promised that they will be resurrected, and that resurrection has to take place.
For that I have to venture and give them their resurrection which is promised by Mohammed Sahib, I mean that’s My duty; […]
Talk on leadership and responsibility, after marriage, end of India Tour, Alibag (India), 30 December 1988.
So we have come to the end of our tour and you all will be going to your countries in different directions. Now we have to look back and see what did we learn in this tour and what did we understand. There has been less talking from Me, I don’t know about you people, but there was a tremendous dynamic force which was working the movement, […]
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. […]
Puja Talk, India Tour. Vaitharna (India), 3 December 1988.
This program has been arranged by Vaitharna and Bombay Sahaja Yogis to welcome you all to India. Give them a hand. (Applause)
All the way you all have travelled to come to this Holy Land, I should say, for your spiritual growth. Every country has been blessed by God Almighty, it’s not only that India is a specially blessed one. But the people in India are definitely are very much blessed that they are even blind to seeking. […]
Puja. Barcelona (Spain), 21 May 1988.
Beautiful surroundings… the nature is all watching us. The Mother Earth has created such beautiful scenes for us to see. When I was born in Chindwara, that also has the same kind of surrounding. Now, of course, they have cleared out lot of places but still if you go a little further, about say twenty miles, then you find the same kind of big jungles. They are full of tigers, […]
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. […]
Puja. Kolhapur (India), 30 December 1987.
Today when I was coming from the shopping, I couldn’t get into the car. One foot was inside, and another would not leave it. So I came out of the car and then I knew that Mahalakshmi’s temple there were bells ringing and the aarti was on. So [INAUDIBLE WORD] Mahalakshmi didn’t want me to get into the car. I had to stand outside ’till the whole thing was over. […]
1987-1220 Puja: Attention on Quality, Rahuri, India
[English translation from Marathi] (Sound cloud – Sahaja Library – 1987-1220 Talk 1 at Rahuri (Marathi))
Does having a namesakes, caste and creed have any meaning? Today I am telling you all plainly that you should not (live on) freebies (“फुकटखोरी”). Sahaja yoga is not for such people who are looking for freebies, if you want freebies, you should take another path. Those who want to stay in Sahaja Yoga have to live with self-esteem (“आत्मसम्मान”) and have to show the world that we are self-respecting people. […]
Complete your Self-realisation, Puja in Aurangabad (India), 19 December 1987.
I am sorry, I was dealing with some newspaper people, journalists, and they came very late, whatever it is.
I found them to be very sensible and very understanding. All of us have come to Aurangabad now, and it seems this place is full of vibrations. Maybe here Shalivahana has ruled in this area, but also there have been many saints who were born on this side of Maharashtra, […]
Welcome Talk at India Tour, Alibag (India) 13 December 1987.
Welcome to all of you. This is a great country, it is also passing through a crisis. Nowadays I feel there are so many things that are happening which you could never dream before and at this time you all have arrived bringing peace and joy to all of them. So I thank you for that.
The strife and the pain which is on human beings is perhaps because they are not yet worthy of God’s blessings, […]
“Commitment and dedication”. Puja Talk, Paithan, Maharashtra, (India), 11 January 1987.
You must have felt the vibrations of this place: they are tremendous. And that we should come here after so many years is really very much surprising.
This place has a great connection with me, as such, because my forefathers ruled in this place. And this was the capital of Shalivahanas. It’s called as ‘Pratishathan’ but then they made as easier as ‘Paithan’. There were rulers here for thousands of years and they are the ones who started this Shalivahan dynasty. […]
Talk to yogis, Ganapatipule (India), 3 January 1987.
Today is the third day of the Moon. Third day of the Moon is Tritiya, is the special day for the virgins. Kundalini is the virgin desire. It is virgin because it has not yet manifested itself. And also, on the third center of Nabhi, the virgins appear as shaktis of Guru.
As we have got ten Gurus which we regard as the main Gurus they all had either their sister or daughter as their shakti. […]
Puja by the Krishna’s river, Brahmapuri (India) 1986-12-27
This is a special month in India and it is nice that we are organizing this program during this month. It is called as the Margashirsha, means where Marga means the road and Shirsha is the head, which leads (sounds like) you to the, to the epitome. That is the month and in this month they worship Guru because of his birthday Dattatreya and also they worship Mahalakshmi. […]
Puja in Nassik at Dr. Sanghvi House, Nassik (India), 23 December 1986.
So now we have here one of the most ancient places called Nasik. I think you must have heard about what happened when Shri Rama and Sita were staying here, why this place was called as Nasik that I will tell you in short. This is the place where Shri Rama and Sita and Lakshmana were staying and the sister of Ravana, because Ravana’s some of the empires, […]
Welcome Puja Mahadevi Puja Talk, Chalmala, Alibag, Maharashtra, India, English part, 21 December 1986.
[Shri Mataji explains that She will first talk in English then in Marathi]
English talk starts at 7:43
I bow to all the Sahaja Yogis.In this beautiful surroundings, many of you are wondering why God has created these beautiful things. Because you people had to come on this Earth and enjoy the beauty that is one of the reasons. And now God feels very much fulfilled with the joy and satisfaction and a kind of a completion of His desire.Why God has created this beautiful universe has been a question asked for thousands of years. […]

God bless you all. Oh! Beautiful. You are all already here. You
arrived by some other side or what? You cam, Mark? [Shri Mataji is
Mataji: You’re quite in time. We were worried about you they are
going to do the same to you
Mataji: Because they didn’t inform about us correctly so I was
wondering whether they are going to do the same to you. […]
Devi Puja, French seminar. Dourdan (France), 18 May 1986.
Today we have gathered here in this beautiful place to work out something very deep. There are certain things of which we are not aware, which are in the history, and some things in the atmosphere, they affect us very much because we are the product of five elements out of which the Mother Earth is the left side within us. The Mother Earth changes its atmosphere, […]
Devi Puja in Madras (Chennai) 25th January 1986
Please be seated.Madras is known for perfect rituals about puja and that is how, in the growth of our awareness, even towards God and towards the rituals, we have moved from reality.As they say the tree of awareness grows downward. So in the West it grew towards materialism, grew towards something that was filthy; went down and down. But as Shri Krishna has said the roots are in your head.But in the Hindu religion it didn’t go that bad. […]
1986-0108 Devi Puja Talk, Marathi, Pune, India, DP
[English translation from Marathi]
We have all gathered here for the puja today and to have a puja in Pune is our Divine luck, because in Shastras (scriptures of Hinduism) this place is called Punya Pattanam. Punya Patanam means the…all the punyas(virtues),all the good deeds that they did in their previous lives are poured into this place in which we are staying at present. How much we are going to add to it would now be seen. […]

Shri Mataji: Ask her. Nathalie, come here. Join hands with Danya.
Are you all right, Ray, now?
Put kumkum to everyone. Just take that, see, you can leave that here. All the ladies, put it on.
[Cut in the video]
Yesterday one boy stood up and asked Me a question, that: “When we are such a yoga bhoomi, we are such a holy country, why is it that all the discoveries in the science are made in the West?”
“Very good question,” I said. […]
Puja in Dr. Sanghve’s Garden, Nasik (India), 17 December 1985.
This place Nasik has a special significance. Long time back, say about eight thousands years back, when Shri Rama went away for his exile, he came to Maharashtra and he passed through various places and he settled down in Nasik, this place, with his wife.
And here a lady who was actually the sister of Ravana, called Shurpanakha, she tried to entice Shri Rama. Now this quality of enticing men or enticing women are really demonic and that is how people call them ‘rakshasas’. […]

Devi Puja, “How to ascend into nirvikalpa” Sydney (Australia), 10 March 1985.
Breeze will blow, now you won’t have problems.
It is such a joy to see so many Sahaj Yogis of such high evolution. I am sure all the gods and goddesses and the God Almighty himself must be overjoyed to see this achievement, no doubt about it.
But I was told that you want to know higher ways, or higher things, by which you would like to ascend higher and higher. […]
“The Culture of Universal Religion”. Bordi (India), 7 February 1985.
Today is the second day of our new journey into the battlefield. We have to win people with love, compassion, affection and dignity.
