Guru Puja, How To Become A Guru Nirmal Temple, Cabella Ligure (Italy)

Guru Puja, “How to Become a Guru”, Cabella Ligure, 20 July 2008

Today is a very great day for all the sahaja yogis. Because Sahasrara opened in you, you could feel the existence of God. By saying there is God that was not sufficient and to say that there is no God also was wrong, very wrong and people have suffered who have said like them. Only after getting realisation you know that there is God and there are vibrations. […]

Talk and Quawalli of the Evening, Eve of Diwali (India)

Talk of the Evening Eve of Diwali. Noida (India), 10 November 2007.
(Translation from Hindi)
Happy Diwali.
I wish you all a very happy Diwali.
You have seen these different types of dances; understand one thing from them, that whoever has written it or said it, they are all saying the same thing. The greatest thing that they said was that the Paramatma is One.
They had incarnated in different forms, avatars, but the Paramatma is One. […]

Adi Shakti Puja, You Have to Become Fragrant Nirmal Temple, Cabella Ligure (Italy)

Adi Shakti Puja, Cabella Ligure, 24 June 2007.
 
It is very nice to see you all again here. I think this is the first Puja that we are having in this place and I hope you are all comfortable and convenient for you to come here.
 
Today is really a very great day. It’s an Adi Shakti, to celebrate Adi Shakti and what is the origin of this Adi Shakti. I’ve never talked about it. This is the first time I’ll tell you that Adi Shakti is the Primordial Mother, […]

Shri Mataji: Today is a very important day.

Hello
Sahaja Yogis: Hello Shri Mataji
Shri Mataji: Better, is it?
Sahaja Yogi: Yes Shri Mataji.
I’m saying that today is very important. This is a new starting for you, for you all. Try to understand that you have worked very hard so far and you wanted to do much more than you have been able to do. […]

Guru Puja, Follow My Message of Love Nirmal Temple, Cabella Ligure (Italy)

Guru Puja, Cabella Ligure (Italy), 4 July 2004
It is a great pleasure for me, greatest joy, to see so many Sahaja Yogis for the Guru puja. It’s very gratifying to think that there are so many, so many of you, who are disciples. It was never expected that I’ll have so many, so many people following me.
It is being expected that you all will follow my message of love. I do not have to say anything for love. […]

Sahastrara Puja, Continue To Live A Life of Reality Nirmal Temple, Cabella Ligure (Italy)

Sahastrara puja, “Continue to live a life of Reality”,. Cabella Ligure (Italy), 9 May 2004.
Today is a very important day in our lives as Sahaja Yogis. This is the day when Sahastrara was opened out, which was clearly a very charismatic thing that happened.
I never expected that in my lifetime I’ll be able to work it out, but it has been. And so many of you have got your Sahastrara opened. Without that, you could never have known what is the Truth. […]

Diwali Puja, The Importance of Meditation Los Angeles (United States)

Diwali Puja. Lake Piru, Los Angeles, (USA) – 3 November 2002.
I wish you a very, very happy Diwali.
To see all of you here, is itself such a joy for me that you all have taken to Sahaja Yoga in such a beautiful way. It’s your own, Self is your own, Spirit is your own, but to take to Self is difficult. It’s only your desires, I think, which is being fulfilled. And that’s how you have got your self-realisation. […]

5th Day of Navaratri, Overcome hatred with love Loutraki, Sportcamp (Greece)

Navaratri Puja. Loutraki (Greece), 21 October 2001.
Today we have gathered here to do the Devi Puja.  This Puja was performed many a times and the Devi was requested by the Devas to save them from the tyranny of devilish people.  Today I feel the same way, that we are now in the grip of a funny (strange) situation; that there are people who are themselves devils, I think, –  and also (people who are) mesmerised by them –  who are trying to do something which they should never have done.  […]

Shri Ganesha Puja, You Have To Protect The Innocent Nirmal Temple, Cabella Ligure (Italy)

Shri Ganesha Puja, Cabella Ligure, 22 September 2001.
Today we have assembled here to worship Shri Ganesha. Shri Ganesha who is the Lord of Innocence. He is the ocean of innocence. And though’ he is such a young, little boy, he can fight the whole world, he can destroy all the negativity. That’s the sign of innocence.
There have been stories that children who have fallen from a very great height were completely saved, nothing happened to them. […]

Shri Krishna Puja, Ananya Bhakti New York City (United States)

Shri Krishna puja. Nirmal Nagari, Canajoharie, New York (USA), 29 July 2001.
Today we have gathered here to worship
Shri Krishna, the One who was Virat, who fought all kinds of evil without entering into the arena. Shri Krishna’s life, in itself, is a very beautiful, creative and loving thing, but to understand Him, it is not easy.
For example, in Kurukshetra, where the war was going on and Arjuna became depressed and he said that: “Why should we fight, […]

Adi Shakti Puja, The Work of the Adi Shakti Nirmal Temple, Cabella Ligure (Italy)

“The Work of the Adi Shakti”, Adi Shakti Puja, Cabella Ligure (Italy), 3 June 2001.
Today we are worshipping Adi Shakti.
I think this is the most important puja because it is the power of Adi Shakti that has given you Self-realisation, that has given you the truth, that has given you the power of compassion and love. 
That’s the power that separated from Sadashiva. And this power wanted, Herself, to create this complete universe — universes after universes. […]

11th Day of Navaratri Nirmal Temple, Cabella Ligure (Italy)

Navaratri Puja. Cabella Ligure (Italy), 8 October 2000.
Today we are going to worship the Devi, called as Amba, and by many other names. She is the last, we should say, the “residual power”. When She has done everything, She becomes the Kundalini and settles in the triangular bone of yours. This is the Mooladhar Chakra. But actually She is expressed more on the left side, because, that time, She is purely the Amba.
This left side is a very, […]

8th Day of Navaratri, The Powers of Shri Mahakali Nirmal Temple, Cabella Ligure (Italy)

Navaratri puja. Cabella Ligure (Italy), 17 October 1999.
Tonight we have gathered here to do the Puja to the Devi, that is Mahakali –we can call Her, or Durga. So many types of forms She has taken, to kill the negative forces that are trying to trouble or to obstruct, or even to grow the people who were gentle and good.
Her forms are of different types – that we know about, that She destroyed so many rakshasas, […]

Adi Shakti Puja, Sahaja Yogis have to transform others Canajoharie (United States)

Adi Shakti Puja. Canajoharie, USA. 20 June 1999.
It is such a great pleasure to Me, to see you all assembled here, and which is such a far-fetched place, away from the madding crowd. It’s such a beautiful place, and which has vibrations.
Shri Mataji: They can’t hear you. Now can you hear Me?
Sahaja Yogis: Yes.
Shri Mataji: All right. It’s all right now.
I selected this place suddenly from a very thick newspaper, American newspaper. […]

Diwali Puja, Expression of Love Novi Ligure (Italy)

Diwali Puja, Novi Ligure, Italy, October 25th, 1998
I am overjoyed really today to see you all here to celebrate the Diwali Puja. We were to be in Portugal but it was not so – so we are here.
Diwali Puja is a very small puja but extremely significant. Firstly in Diwali, the first day they buy something for the family. You can – maybe some cooking utensil could be, an ornament for the wife or something like that. […]

Adi Shakti Puja, You Must Develop Humility Nirmal Temple, Cabella Ligure (Italy)

Adi Shakti Puja. Cabella Ligure (Italy), 21 June 1998.
In Russia the people, somehow, are very open-minded, not only that, the Scientists especially, are very open-minded and were suppressed very much. So they tried to find out the subtler things; not only finding out about chemicals or about some physical properties of the light, but, they wanted to go into the subtler side and they had found out already a great deal of knowledge about the auras – auras around the hands, […]

Sahastrara Puja, Blessing of Divine Pours Only If Sahastrara is Open Complete Nirmal Temple, Cabella Ligure (Italy)

Sahastrara Puja. Cabella Ligure (Italy), 10 May 1998.
Today, it’s a great day because Sahastrara day and Mother’s day have come together. It’s a very Sahaj happening, I think, and that is what we have to understand, how Sahastrara and the motherhood go together.
Sahastrara was definitely opened and Mother had to do it, because formerly those people who came on this earth tried to teach people about dharma, to bring them to the central path, […]

Diwali Puja Lisbon (Portugal)

Diwali Puja. Lisbon (Portugal), 10 November 1996
Today, we are going to worship the Maha Lakshmi which I think is very much worshipped in this country where they worship Her as Maria and also there’s a swayambu of Maria, you must have seen. And also there was an apparition of Her. First I never believed that it could be, but then after feeling the vibrations, now I know it was true, that She did appear here in an apparition. […]

Shri Krishna Puja, Shri Krishna and the Paradoxes of Modern Times & short talk in Marathi Nirmal Temple, Cabella Ligure (Italy)

Shri Krishna Puja. Cabella Ligure (Italy), 28 August 1994.
Today we are here to worship Shri Krishna. As you know Shri Krishna is the incarnation of Vishnu. And Vishnu is the one who is the preserver of this universe. When this whole world was created it was necessary to create a preserver also because this world would have been destroyed and completely if it is left alone without a preserver, then the way human beings are, […]

Sahastrara Puja, Mahamaya Swarupa Nirmal Temple, Cabella Ligure (Italy)

Sahastrara Puja. Cabella Ligure (Italy), May 8 1994.
Today is a unique combination of Mothers’ Day in many countries and Sahastrara Day for Sahaja Yogis. I think this is the most important day in the history of human evolution because all other events, incarnations and ventures in the spiritual atmosphere have been of no avail. On the contrary, they have gone into a kind of a cocoon which has no door, banging themselves against the walls, […]

9th Day of Navaratri, Reintrospect Yourself Nirmal Temple, Cabella Ligure (Italy)

Navaratri Puja. Cabella (Italy), 24 October 1993.
Today we have gathered here to do the puja of the Devi. The Devi has many forms, but is the embodiment of the Shakti. Adi Shakti gives Shakti to all these embodiments and so there are many Goddesses we have.
At different times they came on this Earth and did all that was necessary for the ascent of people who were seekers. Especially the one we know of, Jagadamba, […]

Shri Krishna Puja, Dharma Nirmal Temple, Cabella Ligure (Italy)

Shri Krishna Puja, Cabella Ligure (Italy), 15 August 1993
Today we have gathered here to do Shri Krishna Puja. We have to understand clearly that Shri Krishna is a very, very important deity within us because He is the Vishnu, who resides in the Void, in the Nabhi. He is the one who generates dharma within us.
When you got your realization I didn’t tell you, “Don’t do this. Don’t do that.” I never told you that “This is not good. […]

Guru Puja – Gurus who belong to the collective Nirmal Temple, Cabella Ligure (Italy)

Guru Puja, Cabella Ligure (Italy), 04 July 1993.
Today we are going to have Guru Puja.
I am supposed to be your guru but I feel sometimes that the idea of a guru is very different from mine. Normally, a guru is a very, very strict person and has no patience of any kind.
Even, say [in] music: there are gurus who teach music in India; so all the disciplines have to be absolutely followed. I know about this great musician, […]

Adi Shakti Puja, The Fruit of Knowledge Nirmal Temple, Cabella Ligure (Italy)

Shri Adi Shakti Kundalini Puja. Cabella Ligure (Italy), 6 June 1993.
Today we are all going to worship Me – first time. It has always been the puja of an aspect of Me or a part of Me. Now, one has to know very clearly what is Adi Shakti.
As we say, it is the Pure Desire of God Almighty, of Sadashiva. But what is the pure desire of God Almighty? If you see your own desires, […]

Easter Puja Magliano Sabina Ashram, Magliano Sabina (Italy)

Easter Puja. Magliano Sabina, Rome (Italy), 11 April 1993.
We all have today gathered here on top of this beautiful mountain to celebrate the resurrection of Christ.
It’s very significant for Sahaja Yogis to understand the great event of His resurrection by which He showed that the spirit does not die. He was — He was the Aumkara. He was the Logos and He was the Spirit and that is why He could walk on the water. […]

Birthday Puja, Satya Yuga New Delhi (India)

Puja for the 70° Birthday, New Delhi (India), 21 March 1993.
It is very difficult to speak even for Me. To see so many Sahaja yogis sitting here with such shining faces from all over the world – as if My vision has taken its form today. I see in you the saviours of tomorrow who are going to save this world from all the Kali Yuga calamities that are surrounding us.
It is coming from all sides, […]

Shri Mahalakshmi Puja, The Universal Love Kalwa (India)

Shri Mahalakshmi Puja. Kalwe (India), 30 December 1992.
I would say those who have been worrying and all that should go into great meditation and understand that you are insulting yourself. You are saints. Why should you worry about what plane you are going to get, what you are not going to get? Shows that your level is very low, definitely. All those who have worried you have come here under My protection and you will go back under My protection! […]

Christmas Puja Ganapatipule (India)

Christmas Puja, Ganapatipule (India), 25 December 1992.

I must have said lots of things about Christ before, and how Jesus Christ is related to Shri Radhaji, that he is the incarnation of Shri Ganesha who was the son of the Adi Shakti to begin with but then he was given to Shri Radhaji and Shri Radha created as Mahalaxmi, as Mother Mary this great incarnation of Christ.
Now for the western mind it is impossible to understand how there can be a immaculate conception because they have no sense at all, […]

Diwali Puja Timisoara, Sala Olimpia (Romania)

Diwali Puja. Temisoara (Romania), 25 October 1992.
So today we are celebrating the Diwali Puja.
I think you all can try to learn English which is a very simple language and would be better. I just want to say that you all can learn English language, it’s not difficult from my tapes. Of course the language of love is universal for it has no script, that’s the problem (Shri Mataji laughs) and no words, and no words. […]

1st Day of Navaratri, 10th Position Nirmal Temple, Cabella Ligure (Italy)

Navaratri Puja. Cabella Ligure (Italy), 27 September 1992.
Today is the first day of Navaratri. And when I found that the rain was there and all kinds of problems, and Vishnumaya was suggesting some things, I just consulted the calendar, and you will be amazed to know that in the calendar it is written that till five forty-five it’s not auspicious – it’s inauspicious. After five forty-five only the right thing starts, so just imagine, by calculation how it was correct that five forty-five we had to have this puja, […]

Shri Ganesha Puja, Genetics of Wisdom Nirmal Temple, Cabella Ligure (Italy)

Shri Ganesha Puja. Cabella (Italy), 30 August 1992.
Last time you had asked Me for Gurupada, and you should know that the essence of Guru is Shri Ganesha, the innocence. You must be knowing the story of a very devoted wife, faithful wife, of a sati. Her name was Anasuya, and she was so religious and so dedicated that they say that the wives of all the gods, Brahma, Vishnu, Mahesha, got very jealous of her. […]

Shri Vishnumaya Puja Ashram Everbeek, Everbeek (Belgium)

Shri Vishnumaya Puja, Ashram Everbeek (Belgium), 4 July 1992.
Talk starts at 17:44 on video
It’s a unique opportunity today to do Vishnumaya Puja because She entered into this house [Shri Mataji laughing], we have to worship Her.
First we should know who is Vishnumaya. It’s very important to know because in the Devi Mahatmyam She is only described as the Incarnation of the Goddess: “Vishnumaya iti shabdita” [chant 5], She is called as Vishnumaya.
But let’s see who is She? […]

Adi Kundalini Puja, Pure Love Nirmal Temple, Cabella Ligure (Italy)

Shri Kundalini puja, Cabella Ligure (italy), 21 June 1992.
Today we have gathered here to worship the Adi Kundalini and your own Kundalini, both of them, because your Kundalini is the reflection of the Adi Kundalini. We have understood a lot about Kundalini and also we know that through Her awakening only, through Her ascent only, we have ascended into a very higher realm of consciousness. It’s not only that we have risen to a very higher realm of awareness but that it has granted us so many powers that, […]

Easter Puja Magliano Sabina Ashram, Magliano Sabina (Italy)

Easter Puja. Magliano Sabina, Rome (Italy), 19 April 1992.
This is a great day for all of us to rejoice and to enjoy this Resurrection of Christ. The Resurrection of Christ took place to open our Agnya center because it was a very subtle center as you know, very complicated with the ideas people had from their conditioning and from their ego, were so much clogging the Agnya Chakra that Kundalini could have been impossible to pass through. […]

Shri Shakti Mahakali Puja Bangalore (India)

Shri Shakti Mahakali Puja. Bangalore (India), 9 December 1991.
You all have come now to Bangalore, and yesterday you had gone to Mysore, which was ruled by Mahishasura. That’s the reason you didn’t get your food – it crossed you. Its better not to eat food in such places isn’t it, all right. So it’s a very beautiful place, Bangalore is. Climate is beautiful and you’ll find always these rakshasas lived in places like this. Like in Pune, […]

Public Program Day 2 Madras (India)

Public Program. Madras (India), 7 December 1991.
I bow to all the seekers of truth.
Yesterday at the very outset, I told you that truth is what it is. If we have not found the truth we should be humble and honest about it, because truth is for our benevolence, for the benevolence of our city, of our society, of our country and of the whole universe.
This is a very special time you are all born, […]

Shri Raja Rajeshwari Puja Madras (India)

Shri Raja Rajeshwari Puja. Madras (India), 6 December 1991.
Today we’ll be having Shri Ganesha Puja, followed by Raja Rajeshwari.
So many names have been described of the Goddess: specially Adi Shankaracharya called Her Raja Rajeshwari, meaning She’s the Queen of all the Queens. Also for Mother Mary they have used this title in the West. These ideas have come from the pagan religion, as I have told you before, and that they didn’t come by the description of Mother Mary in the Bible. […]

Public Program Day 1 Madras (India)

Public Program. Madras (India). 6 December 1991.
I bow to all the seekers of truth.
If we are the real seekers of truth, we have to be honest about it and sincere, so that we are sincere to ourselves, and we have justified our own existence in this world. There are so many sadhakas, morning till evening they are working out some sort of a ritual, some sort of a meditation, some sort of a bhakti, […]

Public Program Day 2 Štvanice, Prague (Czech Republic)

Public Program. Prague (Czech Republic), 18 August 1991.
[Hindi]
They have done three songs, have they? One more … one more …
[Hindi]
[Yogi asks about taking of photos during Shri Mataji’s talk.]
But when I am talking, one should not.
You have to sing one song more, smaller one. Hamid, My spectacles. My spectacles.
[Yogi explains to Shri Mataji that they have already spoken about chakras, etc.]
I bow to all the seekers of truth. […]

Public Program Day 1 Štvanice, Prague (Czech Republic)

Public Program. Prague (Czech Republic), 17 August 1991.
I bow to all the seekers of truth. At the very outset, I have to tell you that truth is what it is. We cannot conceptualize it or we cannot change it. Unfortunately we cannot also know it with this human awareness. We have to become a subtler being to know the truth; that is, we have to be the spirit. For that one has to understand that it’s a evolutionary living process. […]

Adi Kundalini Puja, The Power Of Pure Desire Weilburg (Germany)

Shri Adi Kundalini Puja, Weilburg (Germany), 11 August 1991.

Today we have gathered here to do the puja of Adi Kundalini as well as your own Kundalini.

First of all, I think this is the most important thing to understand about your own Kundalini, as Self-Realization is Self-Knowledge. And the one who gives you Self-Knowledge is this, your own Kundalini, because when She rises She points it out what are the problems on your chakras.

Now, […]

Guru Puja, Four Obstacles Nirmal Temple, Cabella Ligure (Italy)

Shri Adi Guru Puja. Cabella Ligure (Italy), July 28th, 1991.
Today, you are all here to worship your Guru. It is a common practice, specially in India, that you must worship your guru, and the guru has to fully be in control of his disciples. Guru Principle is extremely strict, and the strictness made many people could not conform to the ideals of a disciple. In those days the guru had to be, absolutely, the authority and it was the guru who would decide which disciples he’ll have. […]

Virata Puja, Appreciation Should Be Practiced and Informal talk Lake Road Ashram, Melbourne (Australia)

Virata Puja. Melbourne (Australia), 10 April 1991

Because of distances and also we had no ashram in Melbourne all these days, I found that the collectivity is not yet properly woven here and so I think best thing is, today, we must worship the Viraat.

Viraat is the Primordial Father you can say, or the One who is in our brain, acts for our collectivity. As the Kundalini rises ultimately She ends up by piercing through the fontanel bone area. […]

Shri Gauri Puja Auckland (New Zealand)

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.

Bhavasagara Puja Brisbane (Australia)

Shri Bhavasagara Puja, Brisbane (Australia), 6 April 1991.

This is the first time we are having a puja in Brisbane, and I’m happy so many have come here from various places.

You know that by puja, you excite the chakras within Me and you get lots of vibrations, and you achieve, suddenly, a height in your awareness. You do achieve that, but after some time they say that: “Mother, again we come down.” Also, they were saying that: “When we go to India we are all right, […]

Easter Puja, Purity, Morality, Children Bundilla Scout Camp, Sydney (Australia)

Easter Puja. Sydney (Australia), 31 March 1991.
Today we are here to worship Christ as He was resurrected from dead. There are lots of theories about His death, but actually He resurrected Himself and then He went down to India and settled there with His Mother.

Shri Mahavira Puja, Dead Spirits Perth (Australia)

Mahavira Puja. Perth (Australia), 28 March 1991.
Today we are going to celebrate the birthday of Mahavira.
Mahavira is the incarnation of Bhairavanath, or you call Him as Saint Michael. Now these two saints as you know one as the Gabriel, Hanumana, and another is Saint Michael. One is placed on the Pingala Nadi and another one, Saint Michael, on the Ida Nadi.
So, Mahavira had to go through lots of search. Of course He was a angel, […]

The other day I was reading some books how it was done, this Self-realization, to know the spirit, and how people were tortured. First of all they’re asked to somehow or other deny, […]

Navaratri Puja, “The deities are watching you”. Arzier, Geneva (Switzerland), 23 September 1990.
According to the calendar, this year there are ten days of Navaratri, not of nine. Nine are the days, in the night, when the Goddess had to fight the demons and to save Her children from the effects of negativity. On one side She was ocean of love and compassion, and on the other side She was protecting them like a tigress; because the times were such that nobody could meditate, […]
