Talk of the Evening Eve of Diwali. Noida (India), 10 November 2007.
(Translation from Hindi)
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, 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, […]
Easter puja. Pratishthan, Pune (India), 8 April 2007.
Shri Mataji: Today is a very important day.
[Mic is changed]
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, 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. […]
Adi Shakti Puja, Cabella Ligure, 6 June 2004.
Today’s meeting is very special. It’s a very, very special day also, extremely special and very blissful. The reason is it talks and sings and tells about the born order, born power, the original, the Adi, the primordial and this one is responsible for creating this great universe. Why this has started and how it works out is already you know, I need not talk about that.
But today we have to talk about this Power which is hidden in your hearts by which you can do whatever you like to create a new world, […]
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. […]
Mahashivaratri Puja, Pune (India), 15 February 2004
Hindi Talk followed by English Talk
Today we are here to do the Guru’s puja The Guru is praised more than the Deities and the Gods Who is this Guru? In this, which is the most important shakti? The Guru tattwa is the Shiva. The form of the Shiva’s power we should consider as the Guru’s power. Because when we take the powers from the Guru’s shakti, […]
Shri Ganesha Puja, Cabella Ligure, 13 September 2003.
[Shri Mataji invites the children to come and sit on the stage]
Now we are facing little children. They are the ones who are incarnations. They are the ones who are going to lead humanity into some great advancement – the humanity has to be looked after. They are tomorrow’s humanity. And we are today’s. And what are we giving to them for them to follow? What is their aim in life? […]
Birthday Puja, Nirmal Dham, Delhi (India), 21 March 2003.
(Translated from Hindi)
Eternal blessings from Me to all the Sahaja Yogis. You all have gathered here today, in such a large number, to celebrate My birthday. How should I thank you? I just don’t understand. So many people have come from other countries also. And even from our country, so many people have gathered here. Seeing all this, My heart fills with joy.
I don’t know what extraordinary task I have done that you all have gathered here to celebrate My birthday. […]
Birthday Felicitations. Nirmal Dham, Delhi (India), 20 March 2003.
Talk by Sir C. P. Shrivastava
Madam Mayor, Shri Rahul Bajaj, Shri Debu Chaudhary, honored guests, dear Sahaj Yogis and Sahaj Yoginis
Let me first clarify that we are celebrating only one birthday, and that is birthday of your Mataji. I am, you know statistically about fifteen million people living on this Earth must have been born on twenty-first of March. I’m one of them. Just doesn’t matter whether I’m there or not, […]
Christmas Puja, Ganapatipule (India), 25 December 2002.
Merry Christmas to you all.
According to Sahaja Yoga, Christ is settled on your Agnya Chakra. His whole life is depicting the qualities of a person who is a realised soul. What He has suggested in His own life is that you should not have any greed or lust. The way these days people are greedy all over the world is really shocking. Right from the childhood, our children also learn to ask for this or ask for that; […]
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. […]
Sahastrara Puja. Cabella Ligure (Italy), 5 May 2002.
Today is a very great day I must say, to celebrate Sahastrara, the puja of Sahastrara. It’s a very unique thing that has happened that your Sahastraras were opened out. There were some very few people in this whole world; there were some Sufis, there were some saints, some other people also in China and all. But very few, very few got their Sahastrara opened out. So whatever they said or written was never understood by the people; […]
Talk on Birthday Felicitations. Delhi (India). 23 March 2002
This felicitation function is little embarrassing for Me because I was born as a very simple person and I have been an extremely simple person. I don’t understand money. I don’t understand hatred. I don’t understand greed. I’m so simple about it. Despite that, you people came and got your Realization. It’s your own achievement. It’s your own desires that you have achieved. I find so many children nowadays born as realized souls. […]
Shivaratri Puja, Pune (India), 17 March 2002.
Tonight we have gathered here to do Shri Shiva Puja. Those people who have a clean heart can only do Shiva Puja. Those whose heart is not clean cannot do Shiva Puja. It’s a simple principle of Shri Shivaratri.
As you have seen yesterday, we have snakes, or, these are horrible snakes guiding behind the Shiva Linga. The significance is this – those who are clean in heart, who are full of love for others, […]
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 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, […]
“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. […]
Mahashivaratri Puja, Delhi (India), 25 February 2001.
Today we are here to celebrate Mahashivaratri. It’s a very great privilege for all of us to understand about Shri Mahadeva. Unless and until you have got your Self Realisation you cannot understand what is the great personality, the character and the powers of Shri Mahadeva. It is not easy to conceive – also to reach the depths – of his greatness, unless and until we are humble. We have to be very humble to reach (arrive) at the Lotus Feet of Shri Mahadeva. […]
Diwali puja. Delphi (Greece), 7 November 1999.
It is very, very fortunate and auspicious that we are celebrating the Diwali in Greece, specially in Delphi. It has a very ancient history, and as you know Athena resided here.
She was the Primordial Mother. “Atha” in Sanskrit means “primordial.” So this place has been described, has been described even in the Puranas as “Manipur [navel] dvipa [island].” Manipur is the Nabhi. Also in Sanskrit Manipur means the Nabhi Chakra. […]
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, […]
Shri Ganesha Puja. “We must respect the Mother Earth”, Cabella Ligure (Italy), 25 September 1999.
Today we have gathered here to worship Shri Ganesha.
You all know what a powerful Deity He is. His power comes from his innocence. When we see small children we’re automatically compelled towards them and also we want to love them, kiss them and be with us. And very innocent they are, extremely innocent. And when we worship Shri Ganesh we have to know if we have been really innocent or not. […]
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. […]
Easter puja. Istanbul (Turkey), 25 April 1999.
Today, we are all here assembled in Turkey, in Istanbul, to celebrate the resurrection of Christ and, with that also, your celebration of your resurrection.
Christ’s resurrection was a great message for us. He won over the death and came out of that dead body with another body which was living body. The body was the same, but one was a dead body and another one was a body which was living. […]
Birthday puja (Hindi). New Delhi (India), 21 March 1999.
Hindi Part (for subtitles)
(Translation from Hindi:)
After seeing this love, my heart is filled. And thinking that love is such a big power by which so many people are attracted and become happy. This is such a surprising thing. In this kalyug, no one would have seen this greatness of love. I think that after seeing this, all of you should learn to increase your love. […]
Christmas Puja. Ganapatipule (Maharashtra, India), 25 December 1998.
First, I’ll speak in English and then in Hindi.
Today, long time back, Christ was born. You all know the story of His birth, and of all the sufferings He had to go through. He’s the One who has given us the model of Sahaja Yoga. For He didn’t live for Himself, in no way, but He lived for others, working out the Agnya Chakra.
You may be Divine, […]
“Expression of Five Elements on a Sahaja Yogi”. Delhi (India), 16 December 1998.
I have been telling them that the style of Indian knowledge is very different from the Western mind. In the West, you see, if you say something, then they want to have an experimental approval. They will go to the scientists or to other people who are equipped with knowledge to know what they said in these books is true or not. They will even judge Christ. […]
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. […]
Navaratri puja, “The Pure Knowledge”, Cabella (Italy), 27 September 1998.
You can’t imagine how a Mother who has so many beautiful children, sees them in such a joyous mood with their families, their children nicely settled down. It is very satisfying to see you all so much in joy and complete oneness with the Divine.
One has to realise only one thing, that, though you are many, still, compared to the population of this world, we are very few who really know the True Knowledge, […]
Shri Ganesha Puja, “Ekakarita”, Cabella Ligure, 5 September, 1998
[Shri Mataji is welcomed upon Her arrival by the sahaja yogis singing “Nirmala, Kiti Varnavi Tujhiga Sthuti”]
Today we are going to worship Shri Ganesh.
I think I have told you a lot about Him and His nature, but still so many of us have not yet realized what are His powers, and what He wants.
First and foremost thing is that to respect Shri Ganesha is to understand the importance of chastity. […]
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. 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, […]
Navaratri Puja, “Your Beautiful Qualities will prove the Truth of Sahaja Yoga”. Cabella (Italy), 5 October 1997.
[Upon arrival Shri Mataji is welcomed by yogis singing “Durgati Harani Durga Ambe”]
Today is the sixth day of Navaratri.
There have been many incarnations of the Goddess for different, different purposes. But when the great saints introspected themselves, who were worshipping the Mother, they found out that what She has done for us.
The other day I told you the dharma is the innate valency of human beings. […]
Shri Ganesha Puja. Cabella Ligure (Italy), 7 September 1997.
Today we are going to worship Shri Ganesha.
It is said about him, that He is the first deity that was created on this earth by Adi Shakti. And about his creation, you know the story. And also you know how an elephant´s head was attached to him. Today, I am going to tell something more subtler about him, Kundalini and the Mother Earth. He was made out of the Mother Earth, […]
Talk by Claus Nobel at the Royal Albert Hall -3rd July 1997
Well, indeed, life is full of surprises, after all we are meeting here, inspired by the message and work of holy Mother Shri Mataji Nirmala Devi and she is not here in body but she’s here in spirit. Also the wonderful letter that we recently heard from Ayatollah Rohani, which speaks very highly of the work and the mission of the holy Mother, where he indicates the importance of women in the world, […]
Shri Krishna Puja. New York (USA), 8 June 1997
Today we have decided to have Shri Krishna Puja in the land of Shri Krishna.
Though this is the land of Shri Krishna, people ask Me why the people are not spiritual. How is it they get entangled into different types of seekings which are not leading to truth? Why is it the people in America are not so alert as to recognize what is the truth and what they have to find? […]
Adi Shakti Puja. Cabella Ligure (Italy), 25 May 1997.
Today we are going to do the Puja of Adi Shakti. It’s a difficult subject to talk about Adi Shakti, because it’s not easy to understand that Adi Shakti is the power of Sadashiva.
Sadashiva is the God Almighty. She is His breath, as they some people call it. Some say She is the desire and some say that She’s the entire power of Sadashiva, and Sadashiva cannot do anything without Her powers. […]
Shivaratri puja (Hindi Translation & English part) Delhi (India), March 16th, 1997
First of all I will speak in Hindi language, and then in English. We have such a cosmopolitan people that I do not know which language to take to.
Translation from Hindi:
Today we are going to do the Puja of Shri Shiva. The form of Shiva within us, is verily the reflection of Sadashiva Himself. This form of Shiva resides in the Heart, […]
Shri Ganesha Puja. Cabella Ligure (Italy), 15 September 1996.
Today, we are going to worship Shri Ganesha. It’s a very opportune time today, I feel, where the innocence, especially in the European and American countries, is under attack. There’s no respect of the innocence, no value for the innocence. They don’t understand how important it is for human life to have innocence being respected within themselves and also without.
The human life is different from that of animal life. […]
Shri Ganesha Puja. Cabella Ligure (Italy), 10 September 1995.
With all the Ganapatis sitting around me and you all the ganas sitting in front of me, I don’t know what to say. It’s remarkable, very remarkable, because most of you come from a culture which has never shown any respect of Shri Ganesh. They never realised how important it was that, without Shri Ganesha’s qualities, we cannot achieve anything in our life.
The idea of everyday, […]
Guru Puja, “Watch Your Mind and Attention”, Cabella Ligure, July 16th, 1995
It is a very important Guru Puja today because we have completed twenty-five years of Guru Puja.
(Hindi: “Please put the fan in the rotating manner”.)
Also, it is extremely beautiful to see so many Sahaja Yogis who are, really have become, very great. It’s a question of understanding what Sahaja Yoga is.
Is a very unique discovery, I feel now, that people who were seeking the Truth have found it and have now got it absolutely on their central nervous system. […]
Shivaratri Puja. Castle Mountain Camps, Wiseman’s Ferry, near Newcastle, NSW, Australia. 26 February 1995.
Today we have gathered here to do the Puja to Sadashiva. The One, which is reflected within us, is the Shiva, which is the pure Spirit. This pure Spirit within us is the reflection of God Almighty, Sadashiva. It’s like the sun that falls in the water and gives a clear reflection. Or else it falls on the stone, it doesn’t give any reflection at all. […]
Navaratri Puja, Cabella Ligure, (Italy), 9 October 1994.
Today we are going to do puja for Navaratri. Yesterday you saw, beautiful description of Navaratri and how the Mother Goddess has created all kinds of powers within you. It’s not that only She has the powers, but you all have the powers, and you can all work it out, you can all find out whether these powers are there or not.
With us, the realisation is very important, […]
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, […]
Guru Puja. Cabella Ligure (Italy), 24 July 1994.
Just sit down. Ask them to sit down on the ground. Please. You, two ladies, sit down because they cannot see from the back. Today you all have gathered here to worship Me as your Guru.
I must say that I lack many qualities that a guru should have, in the sense I cannot be strict with you, I cannot be stern with you, and I really don’t know how to punish you for doing wrong things. […]
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, […]
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 Virata Viratangana Puja. Los Angeles (USA), 10 October 1993
Today, we are going to celebrate the puja of Virata and Viratangana.
North America and South America, as you know is the Shri Krishna’s center of Vishuddhi. And it is very important to know also that all the communications, all the relationships with the whole creation has to be established through this center of Vishuddhi. Vishuddhi, as you know is the most important center in your ascent, […]
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, 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, […]
