Thank you very much. Thank you.

Wedding Anniversary Mumbai (India)

Wedding Anniversary I just want to thank you all from My heart for coming to celebrate this anniversary with your love. I can’t do more than to thank you really how you people have appreciated My humble work. Moreover, it’s a work of just love. Love is the greatest quality of human beings. And if you have developed that then you will forget all other things. Because love has its own reward and the reward is here, I can see it. I am nothing special except that I love everyone very much. And I don’t think anybody is to be condemned because I’ve seen people coming out of all their problems, their smaller minds into a bigger area in which they are capable of giving love. I must say that whatever was my [faith? UNCLEAR] has worked very well. And it is very, very nice things to see how many of you have understood My love and have spread love among yourselves. Our human problem is one, that is, we don’t know how to love each other. If we could understand that then we’ll enjoy all this love, we’ll really enjoy this love. You don’t have to sacrifice anything. Don’t have to give away anything. It’s all there and you enjoy. It’s reciprocal. You enjoy giving love to others. Maybe some of your experiences may not be that good but most of the people who are human beings [are/have] a special, special temperament of loving each other. And this is Read More …

Inauguration Of Vishwa Nirmal Prem Ashram Noida (India)

Inauguration (from Hindi). Noida, Uttar Pradesh (India), 27 March 2003. You must allow me today to speak in Hindi Language.In our country there are many problems. One of the biggest problems is that here men and women are seen from different angles or different points of view. I don’t know how this happened because it is not written so in our Shastras (Holy Books). It is written in the Shastras that “Yatra pujyante nari” (Sanskrit) meaning that where women are worshipped, “Tatra ramante devata” : there reside the Gods. So I do not know how it is that in our country such a situation has culminated where there is no respect toward women, especially here in U.P.(Uttar Pradesh).I was married in UP and I was surprised to see that in UP housewives do not have any status. There is no difference between them and the domestic servants. How this happened and why is this still happening?? – Because the people are not awakened toward this. Sometimes I feel like crying seeing how they have taken advantage of women. They have thrown them out of home, without any reason ! Just like that, thrown out of house!! And I have had so many experiences in my life which deeply aggrieved me. I did not understand why they are maltreating women? And there are no arrangements to house them! And when they are thrown out of their house there is nobody to take care of them. Poor women!, they were thrown out Read More …

Talk to Sahaja Yogis Hong Kong (China)

Advice to yogis. Hong Kong, 18 December 2001. I am so happy to hear all of you singing those… songs which are sung all over the world. Now you have become part and parcel of that whole. We have Sahaja Yogis everywhere. In America I was surprised to find that 300 Sahaja Yogis were saved in this crisis. That they had not a single Sahaja Yogi was lost. It is remarkable that how some of them were late, some of them ran down and some of them started running in the other direction. All of them are Sahaja Yogis. So many people have died in America, but none of them were Sahaja Yogis. It is remarkable how you are looked after and saved by the Divine.…that you should come all the way here, all of you, especially the Chinese. I feel that we can do a lot. They already have a tradition of Tao. I don’t know how many of you read Tao. Have you read Tao? Anyone? Actually he is – Tao is a Sahaja Yogi and he describes his mental conditions and all of the problems they have in such a beautiful manner that if you read it you will feel that you…very well described all this.Somehow or other Taoism was not practised and it has just become…books of controversy for all the scholars, that’s all. But now I think they are reviving. I was told that…Tao religion has been accepted now in China and they are practising Read More …

Talks to brides New York City (United States)

Marriages. Canajoharie, New York (USA). 30 July 2001. It’s a great thing to see so many of you looking very happy and looking forward for a very happy married life.I’m to tell you that (it) is the woman who makes the marriage happy or unhappy. She should know how to handle the situation and to understand, because it’s a question of love. If you have love in your heart, you can win over anybody.So first you must think of showing, expressing in a very gentle manner your love for your husband and for his family and try to control yourself in a way that they do not get upset with you, he does not get upset with you.Sometimes you may not like some things. At that moment you should keep quiet and later on you can correct it, but the best thing is how you love your husband, how you look after him, how you suggest that you love him very much. This is not understood sometime. Sometimes the brides think that once you are married, “We can demand this, we can demand that.” There should be no demand at all, no demand of any kind, but only thing if you develop, the love will look after you and give all that is necessary that you want to have.You don’t have to open your mouth and ask, “Give me this, I want this.” No, there’s no need at all. It’s the love that you have shown or given will be Read More …

Talk to Sahaja Yogis from Africa Swiss Hotel, Istanbul (Turkey)

Talk to Sahaja Yogis from Africa, Swiss Hotel, Istanbul, 23.04.2001 Shri Mataji : ……This should not come  to you people because you live with the nature and nature is not, nature is never corrupt. Yogi : Mais ça, ça ne doit pas arriver à vous parce que vous êtes au contact de la nature et les personnes naturelles ne sont jamais corrompues. Shri Mataji : You know, every leaf, you will be amazed, which is on the tree, every leaf , gets the sunshine. Yogi :Chaque feuille reçoit la lumière du soleil. Shri Mataji : Every leaf is different in the world, every leaf. And the way they organize it in such a manner, all of them get the Sun’s light. Yogi :Et donc, tout est tellement bien organisé que chaque feuille reçoit la lumière. Shri Mataji : But in corruption, one wants to have all, everything. Yogi :Mais dans la corruption, il y a toujours un qui veut avoir tout. Shri Mataji : To have. Yogi :Ramasser.  Shri Mataji :  And then he doesn’t know what is the joy in giving to others. Yogi :Et alors ils ne peuvent pas comprendre la joie de donner aux autres. Shri Mataji : You see, that’s how it happens with Sahaja Yoga that you become extremely generous. Yogi :Et ça, c’est ce qui nous arrive à Sahaja Yoga, on devient tres généreux. Shri Mataji : I’ll give the example of my husband or I should say of my father. Yogi :Je donne Read More …

Talk to Sahaja Yogis, first response to falsehood Los Angeles Ashram, Los Angeles (United States)

Talk at Los Angeles Ashram. Los Angeles (USA), 3 December 2000. I’ve been here for now quite some time, I think. And, I want to really tell you something important that Los Angeles is a very, very important area. And, compared to all other counties and states, Los Angeles has not taken such a big stride the way it started. And especially when I had a program here, very few people came in after that. What is the reason for that? I tried to find out. First of all, you must realize your own personal responsibility, that you all have got Sahaja Yoga absolutely free; but you have a certain debt and that debt is that you have to give Realizations to others. If you just have it for yourself and leave only to your leaders to work it out, it will never work out. How many people have you given realization? You have to count it. Because after a certain state of your achievement, you become very creative, extremely creative. At this age also I am working, but what I find, once you get your realization, you are settled down with yourself and you become like a monk. We don’t want to have monks and priests. What do we want to have? Sahaja Yogis who will talk about Sahaja Yoga to people, who will develop Sahaja Yoga and create more Sahaja Yogis. So you have to count how many Sahaja Yogis you have created. Yesterday, you saw Anand. Anand Read More …

Questions by doctors to Shri Mataji London (England)

Questions by doctors to Shri Mataji. Ealing, London (UK), 2000 (Regarding sinusitis) Shri Mataji: So the venue (mucus) which is very tough becomes loose, and the heat is absorbed. Dr. Rashid: Shri Mataji, would the onions need to be hot? Shri Mataji: [Yes, very hot.]As far as you can bear it. As far as you can bear it.  It’s a very simple thing. Especially if you have sinus, don’t travel. Dr. Rashid: (Hindi: Shri Mataji, we made a list of questions to ask You, because sometimes some yogis ask us questions and we’re not absolutely sure about them.) Shri Mataji: About diseases? Dr. Rashid: (Hindi: Yes, Shri Mataji, about them.) Shri Mataji: Chemotherapy I’m against. There’s no need. It’s a wrong thing, chemotherapy. You see, they produce heat. You lose your hair. Such a lot of heat. And other complications will come with heat, that is. But Sahaja Yoga is a very simple method. You do use heat, in the sense [that] you use camphor and also these candles. But candles should be big, thick and should give light. But you don’t put it inside the body. Dr. Spiro: So in general, for cancer, say, surgery or radiotherapy would be better than chemotherapy? Shri Mataji: Chemotherapy is absolutely dangerous. It goes from one to another. See – it is a left-sided problem, so chemotherapy gives you heat. With the heat, for the time being, the Left Side improves. That’s all. (But in reality it’s something else.) But you can give Read More …

Message for Yuva Shakti Pune (India)

Message for Yuva Shakti I am grateful for what all you have done for me. I would be glad if you all grow deeper into Sahajayoga. Many of you are good Sahajis. You must remember that you have to become ideal yogis because you have to transform the whole world. That is what your Mother expects from you, that is my only desire. Everything else is futile, of no value. Then only you enjoy being in the Kingdom of the Divine. You must meditate everyday, that is the only way to mature in Sahajyoga. You have to save all those unfortunate drug addicts also. Let your heart emit love, compassion and generosity. May God bless you all.

Talk: Paane ke baad dena chaahiye swagat samaroh New Delhi (India)

1999-12-05 Talk in Delhi: After receiveing you have to give   Sir CP: Dear Sahaja Yogis, returning  back home is a very big thing, I get very emotional when I see your overwhelming love for your Shri Mataji. Then I feel the world is going in the right path. You see, another year is coming to an end, and another century and another millennium is going to start. I just want to say that in this century or in the previous ones, some people came, who started new religion – Mahatma Gautama Buddha came , Lord Jesus came, Christ , prophet Mohammed came , Guru Nanak came . All these people came and started religions because human beings needed all these religions.   The mind of the human beings is very wandering from the beginning,  and to take care of this mind, religion is needed. But whatever religion came, though they handled the human beings, but from inside, from inside the human beings, whatever they were they remained the same. From outside a little impact came. They went to temples or churches or to the mosques, but from inside, it is very important for the human beings to change, because to go to Almighty Father, Paramatma and to get connected, the inside change is very important. And this work somebody had to do, and God has sent Shri Mataji to you for this work, for the rise of the human beings above everything else, and after rising to bring them Read More …

Expression of Subtle Elements New Delhi (India)

“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. They would even judge Moses. They would judge everybody as if they are the most intelligent and the most capable people. And they write books after books against them disclosing as if they are those people who have said something, have said out of their minds or something.It is never accepted normally and if it is accepted they become absolutely fanatics. So, now according to Indian style of understanding is that first of all if a great Rishi or great Muni or a great… you can call a saint has said something, then he has said it, while you have to just listen to that because you are not equally the same. Whatever he has said is his own experience, his own knowledge and you have no business to judge him or to say this is not true, that is not true. You accept it and once you get your self-realization, it is clearly written down after self-realization, you have to grow. Grow into perfect being and then you can Read More …

Sahajayogi:(In Hindi).Shall we do arti. Shri Mataji:(In Hindi.)Can do it afterwards.In the evening. Now I am going to be here with you all. After seeing so many people you don’t know how overjoyed I am. Tremendous. (In Hindi.) Have those things come? Sahaja yogi: Yes. It has come. Shri Mataji:(In Hindi)Why did they get it opened? Sahaja yogi:(In Hindi) That was not Yours Shri Mataji. That belonged to Ruhi. Shri Mataji:(In Hindi) Okay.Not mine? Sahaja yogi: No. Shri Mataji:(In Hindi)Why did they get Ruhi’s opened? Sahaja yogi: They just wanted to see.(Laughing)As you said ….. Shri Mataji:(In Hindi)Does Ruhi have the keys? Sahaja yogi: Yes. Shri Mataji: This is supposed to be duty -free place or something.Ruhi what were you smuggling? (Laughing)(In Hindi)This has turned out well because they were very obliging, no doubt, to give us a room and I would have been very nervous about how to manage and meet in that small little room. I didn’t know they had so many Sahajayogies now. Sahaja yogi:( In Hindi)First there were 5 then 20. Sahaja yogi:(In Hindi)20-30 people more. There are twenty, thirty people who have not been able to come here. Shri Mataji:(In Hindi)Is it so? They will come. Sahaja yogi: If YOU give permission then it will happen. Shri Mataji:(InHindi)Of course, of course.Why not. Ask for permission. Read More …

Talk to Austrian Sahaja Yogis about photos Cairo (Egypt)

Talk to Austrian Sahaja Yogis, Cairo (Egypt) October 30th, 1996 Shri Mataji: I’m here only for 5 minutes more. How many photographs you have taken? I don’t see them. You see, so many take my photograph. Actually, I’m the greatest photographed person.[Laughter].But I don’t see those photographs. So, they should be sent to some –Sahaja Yogi: We send it to Joffrey [unclear].Shri Mataji: Somebody who can pass it on to me.Sahaja Yogi: Shri Mataji, Joffrey from England, he’s collecting all these negatives. We handed it over to him and he makes it out of CDs he said.Shri Mataji: He keeps all of them with himself. He never showed me.Sahaja Yogi: Hopefully not [Laughter]. I don’t think so.Shri Mataji: He came down to see me. He never showed me any photographs. I told this, “What is this you’re getting all the negatives and the rest? I have not seen the photographs”.Sahaja Yogi: He thought, he contacted me about two weeks ago. And I sent all my slides and negatives ahead to him to Cabella, to just go through them, put them into some system or so and he said then he will return it. But I can send you all the photographs and videos whatever it is there, Shri Mataji.Shri Mataji: No, no, but why should you lend negative, you can give photographs.Sahaja Yogi: OK.Shri Mataji: All right. Each one should take negative. We can make copies.Sahaja Yogi: Yes, yes, yes.Shri Mataji: He’s a nice Sahaja Yogi. He is a very Read More …

Jews, Swiss bank, Shias Cairo (Egypt)

Talk to Sahaja Yogis. Cairo (Egypt), 29 October 1996. Egypt has a lot to do with you people, when you got away, in the East, from the time of Moses, isn’t it?So, I am very happy that you could all come here and visit this ancient place and see for yourself. We’ll have to fight against all this nonsense that is going on to make the country weak. This is how any country will be weak if you divide the country. All these divisive methods make the country weak. When you want to join them together, then only the strength will come. But if you want to divide the country, these divisive methods are of no use.[Child speaking in Hindi]Shri Mataji: There should be methods of how to unite, how to bring them together. But I think, without Realisation, it is not possible. I have reached the conclusion. You see, because mentally what can you decide?Now they will think of Hitler, [unclear] that is there, they’ll punish them [unsure and unclear].But, whatever it is, Israelis can do a lot now. At least, they could get after Swiss bank. Don’t you think? They should put the attention to the Swiss bank. Why not? There is one fellow who has started it in America. His name is Guy Anatole [unsure], who has bought from the- he is an Italian and not a Catholic. And he is being supported by the Jews of New York, who are very powerful, that they want to Read More …

Talk to Sahaja Yogis Cairo (Egypt)

Talk to Sahaja Yogis, Cairo (Egypt), October 26th, 1996 … Some other languages apart from, in my country I know three, four. How many languages should I know? You tell me. [Laughter] They do not say, or course [unsure], isn’t it?In Russia, from Japan, all over you see so many languages. But this Philip told me in Japan, the one who is the leader, that they are not against us at all. They are against this ‘OM cult’ which was there. But as he said, “You are a family, you are not a cult”.They are not against us in Japan. They are very anxious. And also, they were saying, “You should build a temple here of Mother”. I was surprised. They want to make a temple. I am still living and they want to make a temple already. [Laughter] You see, everybody is fed up of all this nonsense.When I went to Japan first, ‘baba’ the whole was nothing but Geishas’ houses. Geishas. So, the people were there, from my husband’s office people, they said, “Where to take you? There are only Geishas’ houses”. So, I said, “Take me to Geishas’ houses”. “So, how can you go to Geishas ?”, they burst out. “If you can go, I can also. What’s wrong?”So, we went there, of course, they told us about them how they laugh and this and that. So, the Geisha – I had lots of bangles on me. So, she looked at them, she said, “It makes a Read More …

Talk on Marriage: The Basis of Society is a Family – You Have to Respect Your Women Very Much (date unknown) Moscow (Russia)

Talk on Marriage, The Basis of Society is a Family – You Have to Respect Your Women Very Much Today we have come here to attend a wedding of our brothers and sisters – Sahaja Yogis. It’s important to understand that marriage is a very important thing in Sahaja Yoga because the basis of society is a family. And our society should have very good families. That’s why we are paying so much attention to these weddings, that they should make good family. But sometimes people are very conditioned and they don’t understand what is a Sahaja wedding. They try to find faults with the partners, and within two or three months they are again out of Sahaja Yoga. In the sense that they want to have their second chance, third chance, fourth chance, then I think that My attention I am just wasting for nothing at all for such people. If they don’t like our first choice they should have their own.  Why to bother us? They should not give us any more trouble. Very surprising things I have seen about the marriages that have been going on. One of them is they’re alright for two or three months, and suddenly god knows what bhoot catches them, one of them, that they just give up on a small excuse here and there. They don’t understand that how important is for them to have a good married life. They can go up to three months, four months – then I Read More …

Talk to Sahaja Yogis: Religion has to come from within Hotel Sofitel Victoria Warszawa, Warsaw (Poland)

Talk to Sahaja Yogis, 1996-07-14, Hotel Sofitel Victoria Warszawa, Warsaw, Poland May God bless you. Please, be seated. Just allow it to be there [unsure; about the mike]So, now. I was so happy to see all of you there. I never expected so many of you there, really.I never knew Sahaja Yoga has grown so much. It is such a pleasure to see you all there in such a pretty [Inaudible].Now we have to know that we have to grow in Sahaja Yoga. For that, we must meditate.You see, some people say, “This is wrong with me, that is wrong with me”. Everything will disappear if you really meditate. That is the most important thing; we don’t understand sometimes. If you meditate and your problems are not solved, you can tell Me. But it should be done very regularly. It should be done very regularly. Need not have a fixed time, whenever you want, but every day. Then you will see your growth. How you go into spirituality in such a deep way. Very much, you need in this country. Yesterday, I saw some people suffering very much because they went for a Catholic church. And they’re just trembling before Me like this gesture. I don’t know what they do to you. I don’t understand what they do to you. But I think this religion is based on fear. And that makes you feel so guilty. And when you feel guilty, all problems start in a being. Christ never said Read More …

Talk and Treatment at Vienna Airport and Departure NH Vienna Airport Conference Center, Vienna (Austria)

Talk at Vienna Airport. Austria, 10 July 1996. In Bucharest, there were equal number like you people are here, and I didn’t know how to take out My attention away from them, it was so much touching to see people so much full of love. It’s a very powerful centre we have I think, Bucharest is, because we have some very great musicians there, as you are here. Also, they have, they told Me twenty-one doctors who are practicing Sahaja Yoga. So many scientists, very open-minded people, very open-minded. And it has spread so fast, there were 6,000 people in the stadium, we could not have it in a hall, so stadium, and everyone got Realization. I was telling them the General of the military hospitals, he came to see Me personally, he got his Realization first, then he came to see Me. So humble he was, all the time he was worried how Sahaja Yoga will spread – “What are you going to do?” “How long will it take?” I mean such, sweet, sweet things he asked Me. I was amazed. This man was meeting Me only yesterday, he came to the program, got his Realization, today he is very anxious to do so much for Sahaja Yoga. So, I said, “Why don’t you come to Italy?” He said “All right, “If you call me I’ll come. I’ll come to Pune wherever You will say, to Bombay anyway”. Is very surprising, also in Bulgaria, where we went to Sofia, Read More …

Talk to Sahaja Yogis Shri Saraswati Hall, Kuala Lumpur (Malaysia)

Talk to Sahaja Yogis in Malaysia. 14 March 1996. I’m so full of love and joy to see you all here again, to see it, the number of people came and you all have to look after them with care and concern. I never expected that such a lot of people will come and in one year they’ve grown such a lot. So we have to get them very much rooted in Sahaja Yoga; it will depend on your own handling or managing the whole thing. Like when I was in Hong Kong I was surprised we’ve very beautiful Chinese, mostly Chinese. The Yogis liked them very much and they informed Me two hundred people came for the follow-up very seriously, two hundred people, it’s something very gratifying. If they’re coming and if they settle down, we’ll have so many of them there in Hong Kong which is being managed by one boy from, Alex from Australia. He’s done very well, I must say and he might have to go back but he’s done his job very well and now there’re so many people there in that place which I never expected. Now what I find that just like something making noise little less, I find that just like Hong Kong also here the people are very active, over-active. The streets are filled with cars and so much more coming out and there’s so much pollution. This is not a good thing to have too much pollution so Sahaja Yogis Read More …

Talk to Sahaja Yogis Hong Kong (China)

Talk to Sahaja Yogis in Hong Kong, 10 March 1996. So many questions, you see… Now, most of the questions are coming from people who doubt. Can you translate it? In Sahaja Yoga best thing is to practice what is said and then see for yourself, but if they’re coming I would like to tell them about it. Now the first one is about vegetarianism, somebody’s asked. Who has asked about vegetarianism? Raise your hand. Ah, you, all right. Now, I said that there should be, there is no question of vegetarianism; whether you are a vegetarian or not makes no difference to your meditation. But for people, you see, the food is only important because supposing you’re Chinese, you eat too much of fish and all that. So to give it a balance, if you become a vegetarian more you’d be better. It’s a question of balancing, but those people who eat too much of, say, vegetarians, like in India, they should take more to non-veg, or to proteins; it’s a question of carbohydrates and proteins, it’s not question of vegetarianism. Now to say that Buddha was vegetarian is not true; it’s false. Because how Buddha died, you know? Buddha died when he went to a disciple who had killed a wild boar, and the wild boar is allowed to leave for some time and then you should eat the meat. But he was in a hurry, so they didn’t do that and he ate it and he died. Read More …

Evening Program, eve of Diwali and Talk Nargol (India)

After Concert Talk Nargol 10-28-1995 Shri Mataji (in Marathi): Today, all things have been delayed and we all know the reason why. However, in Sahaja Yoga, we do not look at the clock. And we also do not keep thinking whether some things are happening as per the planned time or not. Whatever happens “Sahaja” (with ease/without effort), only that gives true joy. Now these songs that were conducted earlier, they were in English, or I would say, in the Western style and you all like it. I found great satisfaction in that. Otherwise, there are a lot of music experts sitting here. And they will say, “Mataji, what is this that you have started here?”. However, we should listen to all forms of music. Obviously, I am not referring to just any kind of music, that is coming out these days. But all forms of music. I am very fond of Western classical music. I am also very fond of South Indian music. And of course, ours. We have to have an extensive vision. And I was very happy to see that you appreciated what the French people (Sahaja Yogis), presented to you, the songs. The lead singer among them, from Zaire, in Africa, he is a very famous singer. A very famous singer in France. And now he is in Sahaja Yoga. He teaches small children also and says all our mantras. So there is a very big revolution in the world. They worship Shri Ganesha and sing Read More …

Talk to Sahaja Yogis Palacio Bencich, Buenos Aires (Argentina)

Talk to Yogis, Buenos Aires, Argentina 1995-08-28 Shri Mataji: I never expected so many Sahaj Yogis to be there at the airport to welcome me. (Spanish interpretation). Some of you I have not even met and not even see you and I felt very happy to see you all. (Spanish interpretation). Specially yesterday when we began was tremendous we had so many people and all of them got realisation Shri Mataji: That shows that in this country we have a great potential. (Spanish interpretation). And that if you really, properly have this Sahaja Yoga, we can have many many, many, many more Sahaj yogis. (Spanish interpretation). First of all, one has to know that we have to be extremely kind and gentle with the new Sahaja Yogis. (Spanish interpretation). They will see you and form their ideas about Sahaja Yoga. (Spanish interpretation). I have seen many a times new Sahaja Yoga come and just disappear because people don’t handle them with care. (Spanish interpretation). Now we are sort of a stage, in a building stage here and we have to be really very careful that you are the foundation and that you have to bear the whole load upon yourself. (Spanish interpretation).  Shri Mataji: I also heard that there are many girls and boys who want to get married. (Spanish interpretation). That is a very good idea. (Spanish interpretation). But first of all who have married, who have come all the way, should give certificate that the people are all Read More …

Advice, Picnic Richmond Park, Surrey (England)

Advice at yogis. Richmond Park, Surrey (UK), 25 June 1995. In the nature one goes absolutely thoughtless. For me it is such a pleasure to meet you all here under the trees. There is a beautiful atmosphere created by these trees. How much they work hard for us – think about that. All is built-in, in them, built in to produce this chlorophyll, this greenery. All that is built in, in them. But see how collective they are. You have to learn a lot from them. Every leaf is allowed to get the sun, every leaf. How they grow, how they are organized, how they behave like this, nobody thinks even – and what is it working it out in them? They haven’t got realization, but how do they work it out in such a beautiful manner? Because they are under the complete control of the Divine – absolutely, they don’t have to worry. Even the animals are, that’s why they are called as Pashu, means they are under the complete Pash. Pash is the complete control of the Divine and Shiva is called as Pashupati, he’s the one who looks after all this. Affectionately and in a very delicate manner. All this is created for human beings. These human beings don’t understand that all this world, which is created, is for the use of human beings, not for abuse – but use. And this is one thing which has to be really felt in this atmosphere, that how they Read More …

Talk to Sahaja Yogis: How to Talk to New Comers? Bangkok (Thailand)

Advises on how to talk to new comers. Bangkok (Thailand), 16 March 1995. Shri Mataji: Can I have my spectacles? Laurence: Yes Shri Mataji: Please be seated, please. Come here in the front. Why don’t you come here? Sahaja Yogi: [about the mike] Shri Mataji: [Unclear] I’ll have some tea? Laurence: Yes Shri Mataji: [Unclear] Now, we had lots of people, I should say for the program. By the time I started the program, there were many people. Now the problem faces you is this, that when I go away, there are very few Sahaja Yogis left here, and they have to look after the newcomers. And the problem is like this, that you have to deal with them very carefully. Because, you know, they are now yet not such Sahaja Yogis as you are and they don’t understand what is Sahaja Yoga. To get Realization is very easy, but to become a Sahaja Yogi is a difficult thing. It’s a very deep growth that you require to become a good Sahaja Yogi. As it is, they are coming just now from that human awareness, which you have to make a divine awareness. So it’s a very difficult task I must tell you. So with all compassion and love, you must deal with them. You should never talk sharply. Sometimes Sahaja Yogis will say: “Oh, your – this chakra is catching,” or they’ll say: “You have got this bhoot in you,” and all sorts of things. Then they get, you Read More …

Talk to Sahaja Yogis Shri Saraswati Hall, Kuala Lumpur (Malaysia)

Talk to Sahaj Yogis, Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, March 13th, 1995 So yesterday you had so many people, most unexpectedly, and I was discussing as to how will you have your follow-on programme. How will you do that? Because every house at most, thirty, even if you have: ten houses, you will only have [space for] three hundred. So these ten houses, which are the ten houses? Raise your hands, I would like to see. All right.  Now near your house is there any hall? [Near] your houses? It’s better that you book a hall. All right? Later you can also charge the people for the hall, doesn’t matter, they can pay. All of you should book a hall close by. All right? So that when people come in you can make them sit there. Because I don’t think you can manage with thirty people coming in your house and the rest will be standing outside. So the best thing would be to find out some hall which is close to your place that will solve your problem. All right?  Already we are so many.  So today I’m going to tell you what we have to do in dealing with these people, it’s very important plan. First of all, you must know that they have come for the first time for Sahaj Yoga. And Sahaj Yoga is the power of love and compassion, not of fighting or arguing. Supposing somebody is arguing too much, then what should you do? You should Read More …

Talk to Sahaja Yogis Grand Hotel Taipei, Taipei (Taiwan)

Talk To Sahaja Yogis Grand Hotel Taipei, Taipei (Taiwan) It’s nice to see so many people there, for the program. I counted about [UNCLEAR] there were about, little less than 500 people. Because I was counting the chairs and then the seats that were [UNCLEAR] and some were sitting upstairs also. Now the thing is to, [UNCLEAR no, know] reference. [UNCLEAR Mother Talking to yogis] See these people will be coming now, [UNCLEAR, will] be good. And it’s all a responsibility for you. Maybe I don’t know how many will come. We give them any forms or anything? Yogi: [UNCLEAR] Shri Mataji: So how many you got? Yogi: [UNCLEAR] how many? [Yogis talking] Yogi: 200. 200 [UNCLEAR] Shri Mataji: That’s it. So now, to look after this 200 is very important. Someone translate. Somebody can translate? See, now there are about 200 people who have signed, who want to come to the program. Now you have to have understanding because you see, you are not so many, they are 200 people. So the responsibility is on every one of you. You should not think that the responsibility is on only on the leader or someone. It’s on all of you. And you have to be of a level, you can’t be like other people. Baba can you close that door? So it will be a little cooler [UNCLEAR]. See what I have seen that when people come, some people don’t know how to behave properly and start saying things: you Read More …

Talk to Sahaja Yogis Hong Kong (China)

Talk to yogis Hong Kong 02-03-1995 And when we reached there it was all covered with ice. It was about 14-15 hours altogether and that is the same day we had program – same day in the evening, it was a bit too much. I think, next time you should see that the day I arrive, there should be no program – until next day I can rest. Aapko aur bhi kisi cheez ke liye yaad kiya tha bahut – Ji haan – Woh jo aapko case batayi thi na – Ji, ji – Aayiye Hum bata dein – Woh log Madras pahunch gaye hain – Achcha wahan kuch zameen khareed li hai aur wahan ye laundering ka kaam karne waale hain aur Sahaja Yog ke naam se. Aur kise, aap wahan kisi to aap kehelwa hi dijiye – Ji haan – Aur waise Hum unko Home Ministry mein kehla dein kyonki; Hum jaante hain Dhule sahab jo hain wahan – par aap agar keh dein to bahut hi achcha hoga. – Mein kehlata huun Unka pata bhi hai aur woh sab wahan aane waale hain; Usmein se ek Pakistani – Achcha.

Arrival and Talk: Sahaja Yoga is the same as Zen Hotel Chinzanso Tokyo, Tokyo (Japan)

1995-0301 Arrival and Talk, Hotel Chinzanso, Tokyo In Australia we did Shiva Puja, and this is the result of that, I’m here. It was in a forest, absolutely dark forest, and there was very little light over there, they had to lit with their torches. At this time, I don’t know, I was having one of the best Puja we had. I really got completely detached, absolutely in meditation, and everybody opened their heart. They came to the airport and brought all these flowers, and everything for me, so many things for me. So many of them. There were 760 people for the Puja. It should happen to Japan also. It will. When I started in Australia there were only 2 persons. Because despite all your progress and everything, I find Japanese are very disturbed within. They are very unhappy people. So it is a very difficult situation. But they have no way out, it takes them to drug also. The way we should understand Japan is very important from Sahaja Yoga point of view. But this materialism really dries them out. They should understand the value of love. And also power of love. This programme is so that we could have had a programme tomorrow. I am telling him what was the reason we had four days there in Hong Kong. They are more oriented towards this. In Hong Kong I know we are many I must say, unless I have done a great job. There are so many Read More …

Farewell Talk Sydney airport (Kingsford Smith), Sydney (Australia)

Talk at the Airport. Sydney (Australia), 28 February 1995. We have had really a very beautiful Shiva Puja here. It was never so good before, and so many people there. Everybody’s heart was opening.  It was really, in the land of, as if Shiva we were in there.  So I’ve told you about what is to be done, to develop detachment, and to understand.  I know lots of things from your Kundalini, and some people still have problem with agnya, left nabhi, right nabhi. This all can be cured, if you, just know that you are the Pure Spirit and you have to become that. This is not difficult. Only thing is you must have confidence in yourself, and also respect, respect for everything. What we have in this culture so called, no respect.  Respect your body.  Respect your relations.  Agnya can, run away you see, fast, all the problems of agnya, if you know how to respect.  Respect the Mother Earth, and everything will be fine. It doesn’t mean if you respect somebody that means you are subservient.  You are not. Respect shows your growth, your maturity. I find it difficult even, to tell people when they are very very wrong.  It’s very difficult, very embarrassing, and to publicly tell that is even more embarrassing,  but supposed to be My job so sometimes I have to do it.  But I don’t like it.  All those people whom I’ve tried to tell they should really, work it out, because you’ll Read More …

Arrival Talk Melbourne Airport, Melbourne (Australia)

Informal Talk to Yogis. Melbourne Airport (Australia), 19 February 1995. I never expected you all here but, very happy to see you, that our, Melbourne has grown so much so beautifully. You all look so nice. It was, quite a struggle to begin with, but it had worked out and we all have come together now, in such a beautiful way. There were many in Ganapatipule I couldn’t talk to you directly, that time. How many got married in Ganapatipule? This time. None from Melbourne. But there were many Australians married. All right next time. What I was told that most of the young boys and young girls are married now and we had a problem, because the boys were all about six feet and all the girls were below five feet. But when I told them that they said: ‘Mother You are so concerned about heights so, we are very thankful You can marry us and we don’t mind.’ So I said: ‘It’s good.’ Otherwise see, sometimes only on height people fight. It seems children are very happy in the school and they are enjoying there. Now I’ve started a new thing again, is a gymnasium, where you have to learn gyms and you have to develop your bodies to be Mr Universe. Such a nice, family of ours, and the way things are working out all over the world, it’s very, joy-giving for Me. It’s all so easy for Sahaja Yoga. Just have to meditate and, penetrate more Read More …

Wedding Announcements Ganapatipule (India)

Wedding Announcements, Ganapatipule, India, 24-12-1994 Shri Mataji: …and under the circumstances, we can’t help it. If you put restrictions; of course, we observe the restrictions. But in that case, there’s a problem. So now we will start. Alright? Also, those people who were announced before – there were some girls were missing; some boys were missing. So also you can find out and try to match.  Yogi has been working very systematically. He is working very hard. And [unclear] all of them. But still, you must know that in such a short time to decide is very difficult.  Sahaja Yogi: Doctor Valentino.  [No audio. Starts again with wedding announcements by Sahaja Yogis]. Sahaja Yogis: Oleg Romankoff from Russia with Magnani Nirmala from Nasik. They should stand up wherever they are. [applause] Alexander Lickovich from Russia and M Nageshwari from Hyderabad. [applause] M Yagneshwari from Hyderabad. [applause] Kaushal Rai from Delhi with Edenva Noronnova from Slovakia.  [Names of couples are announced for the next ten minutes]. Shri Mataji: I think we have to start the music programme now. About these marriages, I will tell you later on. But we have found out that Russian girls are the best as housewives. Very satisfied. [applause]. They are not bothered as to how much you are earning, what you are doing. They are very satisfied and can live with two-three sarees. Very sweet girls. They are very good-looking. And also from other countries like Romania, Poland; they are very good girls.  I am surprised Read More …

Release of Sir CP’s book on Shastri New Delhi (India)

Sir CP’s talk For me it’s a very moving day, a very moving moment and if you find me stopping from time to time to regain my emotions, I hope you’ll kindly forgive me. I want to begin by sharing with you a secret, a well kept secret for a long time and the secret is, the third of December, which is the day today, is by far the most important date in my annual calendar. Have you guessed it? You have! It was on this date, forty-eight years ago in 1946, that I first came face to face with this Divinity. That was a day of my transformation. That was the day when a Divine Will enveloped my being. From then on a Divine Force emanating from the source that you know has been constantly with me, helping me, guiding me and that is the secret for whatever you may have heard today. After third December I did not lose much time and I’m sure you’ll agree, I shouldn’t have. We got engaged on the 18th of February, 1947 and we got married on the 7th of April, 1947, and then events began to move very rapidly, events which might have seemed impossible in normal circumstances. Within a matter of months, as Rajesh mentioned to you, I was selected for both of India’s top [don’t understand]service, of the diplomatic service and the administrative service. I first joined the diplomatic service and when I was offered the Indian Administrative Service Read More …

Address to Tunisian women Tunis (Tunisia)

Address to Tunisian women. Tunis (Tunisia), 13 November 1994. Shri Mataji: You can’t see? You can come here. Yogi: … ladies, Shri Mataji, they all say that they have got used to You, and they love You very much… Shri Mataji: Thank you. Yogi: … and they want You to stay in Tunisia (Shri Mataji laughs), they want You to buy a residence – they want to buy a residence for You, so You can come more often (applause). Shri Mataji: I see here, these are the kindest words I’ve ever heard. I’ve been here for a short time, but I really felt so close to you. You are so sensitive and so sensible and you didn’t mind whatever I’ve told you. I’m a Mother, and I have to tell you the truth and you shouldn’t feel bad if you think that I’m your Mother. That is a Mother’s job; she has to have patience, love, affection and also wisdom. Perhaps we women don’t realize how important we are. Men can do politics, economics and all the mess of it, but women are responsible for the society. They can make the society or mar the society. Wherever there are good societies, where children are good, families are good, and there is peace, there the women are responsible. The woman who has the job of rocking a child can rule the world. In no way a woman should think she is less than man. Woman is like this Mother Earth and Read More …

Shri Mataji’s answer to award Istanbul (Turkey)

Professor Voronov’s talk and Shri Mataji’s acceptance of the award, Turkey, 1994 [Audio 1994-1105 Talk After Diwali Puja Istanbul Source NITL] [No sound. Abu Bakr?] killed two more Khalifas and became Khalifa himself. And the last Khalifa before him was killed and his liver was eaten by his mother (her name was Hind bint ‘Utbah), mother of this Abu Bakr (Shri Mataji means Mu’awiyah- first Khalifa of Umayyad Caliphate). What a horrible fellow he was! And just to become the Khalifa, he did this. By that time, nobody had written Bible of this Koran (Koran, as a word means to gather, to bring together, pages brought together). Because it was not written down anywhere. It was remembered by heart because Muhammad Sahib did not know how to read and write. So, this fellow went round all the people who were the sons of the people who had learnt or who had remembered by heart, who had carried this for forty years. After forty years, Koran was edited by this horrible fellow Abu Bakr and he did according to the way he was. He was something like our great mister Paul. But he hated women, he hated women and that is why he did a lot of nonsense in that – actually, how much of original Koran is there? One doesn’t know.But he made it like this, that Koran is the last word and whatever is in the Koran is all right. But just see, despite everything, how the truth has Read More …

Arrival Talk Boryspil International Airport, Boryspil (Ukraine)

Speech at arrival in Boryspil airport, Kiev (Ukraine). 17. September 1994. I don’t know how to thank you all for such a welcome you have organized for Me.Actually on Moscow’s airport they were little non-cooperative, and I was worried because they said, “You can’t go to Kiev”. All of your prayers have worked and I am here with you. There are so many who have come with Me, and everybody is so anxious to meet you here. They have had a big conference of the scientists. There were 2,000 scientists and about 10,000 people, and they were convinced that morality is very important for medicine. Without morality people cannot keep good health. They contaminate diseases. And I was surprised, this is only possible in your country – either Russia or Kiev – where people have such enlightened mind. No one can think of such a thing in other countries. You people are very advanced in your wisdom.Also you are very deep in understanding spirituality – how important it is. I don’t know when will I learn Russian, it’s quite a difficult language. If I had come in My young age I would have learnt it, but I didn’t come that time. And I find that even if I don’t understand the language – I understand your heart. Some Indians had come and they said, “These people have a very, very large heart. We cannot be compared with them.” Even the English, the Germans, Austrians – all of them feel that about you. So, now we have a Diwali Puja in Istanbul, and it is Read More …

Talk to Sahaja Yogis Vienna International Airport, Vienna (Austria)

Speech at the airport Schwechat. Vienna (Austria) 18 July 1994. I’m very happy to see you all here. It’s really nice to meet you all like this, because in Cabella I never get a chance to talk to anyone. I’m sorry I’ve had some very bad reports which I must tell you. It’s very important. I always used to praise Austrians very much that they are so many and so good, very good Sahaja Yogis. But the reports I have are horrible. Other people from other countries have told Me that, “Mother, You are praising them, but You better warn them. Because they are not taking Sahaja Yoga so seriously as they should have done. Moreover some people who come to Cabella go on talking against some other group. And they told Me there are groups formed among these Sahaja Yogis who are influenced by these groups and their grudges and their complaints. They’ve become very mental, they want to solve their problem mentally. This was a very big shock for Me. And they went to such a limit to say that, “Mother, this time You shouldn’t allow them to have any Puja.” I said, “All of them are not like that.” They said, “But still. Quite a lot of them indulge in such cheapish things that we are surprised.” I must tell you one lady came all the way to Taiwan to complain against Hamid. And she told Harald, who is a very sensible Sahaja Yogi that she has Read More …

Talk after program Bangkok (Thailand)

1994-04-27 Talk after program Bangkok Shri Mataji: Come forward I think [Shri Mataji tells yogis to sit closer]. She did a good translation. After all, you know, last time it was much worse. Gradually she will get used to it now. She did well. I mean so many got realization is the point. So many, everybody raised their hands, practically [everyone]. I did not see anybody not raising [their hand]. Maybe one or two might not have. Did you see some people who did not get realization? Yogi: No Shri Mataji. Shri Mataji: No? It was… Hello [to a yogi] So, so many were there today. Great. Really. It’s very surprising how it has worked out. I never expected so many, really. But there must be at least seven [to] eight hundred people. Everywhere it is like this now. So next year there will be even double than that, isn’t it? I didn’t know you [to a yogi] are here now. I thought you are in Switzerland.  I mean you know how to handle them. You know how to behave with the new ones who will be coming here. You have to be very careful, in no way to hurt them. Tell them in a way that they understand, you see. Because in the beginning if you just say something harsh, it may be too much, and they might think that you are trying to show off or something. So never call anybody a bhoot or anything like that. Gradually… Read More …

Talk to Sahaja Yogis Carla's House in Malaysia, Kuala Lumpur (Malaysia)

Talk to Sahaja Yogis, Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, April 26th, 1994 So today we had so many people there and I’m sure there’ll be many who would be coming, maybe many, many more. That’s a very good beginning, I think but as I told you before that you have to be yourself so dedicated that they understand it. The first question somebody asked Me, what about going to temple. It’s all right going to masjid or temple, it’s all right. But problem is, you see these are all money-oriented or power-oriented places. In the temple what these pandits are sitting there and taking money and doing all these things, what do you get there? And the statues are also, those are there are not swayambhu, means they’ve not come out of the Mother Earth. So made by somebody just to make some money. So best is to make your heart a temple and when it works out then you’ll be amazed you’ll rise. But going to these temples is just, I don’t understand, it’s very ritualistic. It has no atmosphere for meditation, nothing. So the first thing to do is to meditate; if you do not meditate, you are not with Me. If you’re meditating you’re with Me. Meditation means morning for at least for five to ten minutes; you stand before the photograph, you put both the hands towards the photograph and then see what chakras are catching. There you can say, “Mother come in my heart, come in my Read More …

Talk to Sahaja Yogis: We should support each other The Peninsula Hong Kong, Hong Kong (China)

Talk to yogis. Peninsular Hotel in Hong Kong (China), 24 April 1994. All right. Put your hands towards Me. First of all, I must say I am very happy to see so many Sahaja Yogis in Hong Kong. Hong Kong is a very materialistic place, as you know, and people are too busy, but the problems come out of that busyness. All this busy life creates lots of problems. So I am sure there will be more coming from the last program, definitely, lots of them, and your hands will be full. So I just wanted to tell you what should we really do to achieve the maximum results. First of all, we have to establish that we are Sahaja Yogis, we are very sober people and we have among ourselves tremendous respect and love. So one should never support an outsider who is not yet a Sahaja Yogi or who will be a Sahaja Yogi but support each other, all the time. Do not argue among yourselves. Maybe one person may be wrong, I am not saying. But [it] is important that we should support each other, and above all, we must support the leader. Whatever the leader says, we must listen to him. It’s very important, in Sahaja Yoga we are a collective organisation, that too a living organisation. If somebody is not collective, he is thrown out of Sahaja Yoga. We are not very happy with such people. So you must try to put all effort to Read More …

Talk to Sahaja Yogis and Departure for Hong Kong Grand Hotel Taipei, Taipei (Taiwan)

Talk to Sahaja Yogis in Taipei (Taiwan) 21 April 1994. [… various voices – inaudible …] Shri Mataji: My God, it is very nice in this country, very nice. You can open the door, yes. But that door should be closed because otherwise it is … Yogi: Yeah. Yogi: Yeah, this side. [ A Chinese voice – some whispering – inaudible ] Shri Mataji: Now the two ladies, the saris for the ladies. This you should give to the artist because she really learned it better. And this for another lady. This sari … Yogi: Both are not here, all gone. How did she did? Shri Mataji: Now she’s here. Yogi: The baby also. Shri Mataji (gives presents): May God bless you! May God bless you! She is so emotionally touched, eh? I hope you like it with more artistic work, all that. The hands and [inaudible]. This is the, this is the end of it. Very good, when she …. Because it is such a hot country I bought something, like this, is also very cool, very cool. Ah, see that. Shri Mataji: So, yesterday was a very, I must say, a very heartening program for Me, more than successful. Shri Mataji to the translator: “Can you translate?” Shri Mataji: Because the people who were there were quite serious type, I felt they were listening to Me with great concentration. And it was first very hot, very, very hot – because the heat was coming out, I think. But Read More …

Talk to Sahaja Yogis Wamuran Ashram, Brisbane (Australia)

Talk at Wamuran Ashram, Queensland (Australia). 13 April 1994. [Full talk: from video…] Shri Mataji; Sit here, in front… so that everybody… Please be seated.  It’s already become… The sun has gone behind the…no, just come this way a little bit.   Also there could be… no no, you are alright… see all of them could be… You could remove the table if you like.  Yah, you could come this way. So, we have a very nice place for us to come to and to be in the nature, uh… as they say, ‘Far from the madding crowd’.  It’s very good for meditation and for enjoying your being within.  As I have already told you in New Zealand, that the whole thing is ruined because of money-orientation.  Money has become so important.  It has gone to the other end – so much so that it has created a very paradoxical culture.  Certain things I’ve been reading and I have been really shocked.  The other day I read that two children killed their parents – machine gunned them, in Pennsylvania – because the parents were very kind to them and they developed a feeling that, ‘They are nice to us because they want to kill us.’ And so they went and killed.  I mean, imagine the psychology: how this psychology is built with children, why they become so perverted?  When we have hopes from children now, not from the old people so much who are already not coming to Sahaja Yoga  Read More …

Farewell Talk to Sahaja Yogis: Listen to Me and also try to follow what I say Sydney (Australia)

Farewell Talk. Burwood Ashram, Sydney (Australia). 7 April 1994. So, thank you very much for the greetings on this day. It was a Easter Monday when I got married that day, and also My baptism took place on Easter Monday. But you know our Easter Monday always changes according to the Monday it comes. So it was quite a big venture for Me to marry. Actually, I did not need it at all. But as you know in India, they won’t spare any girl from marriage, and they have been after My life since I was about eighteen years of age. So somehow I managed. But I was in the medical college Lahore, and suddenly the disturbances broke out there, of a very serious nature. And I came back, and there was no possibility of My going back. Then the whole thing – planned, I think Divine planned it for My marriage, because I had to accept them. And as My husband was there, there were many proposals also, which they chose this one, and I was married. In a way arranged, because I had never talked to him about it, he had not talked to Me, but he had seen Me once before. So, for Me it was all right because everybody’s so much worried in My family about My marriage all the time. But all throughout I feel that I looked after My husband’s relations, family, though he had none. He had only one sister whose grandson is Read More …

Picnic, Talk to Sahaja Yogis Lane Cove National Park, Sydney (Australia)

Lane Talk at Lane Cove National Park, near Sydney, Australia. 5 April 1994. What a beautiful place to come to, isn’t it? I have been here before also. You have such nice places on the outskirts. On the outskirts you have really very nice places in Sydney and this picnicking has helped you to make your collectivity better. That’s how they started having picnics and in the picnics they developed the collectivity, which is very beautiful to be one with the nature, see the bounty of the nature and the variety that they have. Is a innate feeling inside always that you should be one with the nature, that you should enjoy the nature. I mean, it’s maybe because they say we have evolved from animals so we like nature, you see [Shri Mataji laughs]. But it’s so much round, so much your temperament, everything when you see the nature and start seeing it, how it obeys the laws which govern it. Now see, if you see every leaf, any leaf, is not comparable with another leaf, if you put it under microscope they’ll be all differently made. So the variety’s so much in the nature, but still how they abide together. And the greatest thing they have is that always the desire to get the sunlight. And every leaf, every branch tries to give chance to another leaf and another branch, that they all get the sunlight. If you have to see collectivity, really you see in a jungle Read More …
