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, […]
Adi Shakti Puja, Cabella Ligure, 24 June 2007.
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. […]
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? […]
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. […]
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, […]
Shri Vishnu puja. Paris (France), 13 July 1994.
It is such a great day today that the French got their liberation on this day. But what is this liberation for? I don’t know. In no country where they had freedom and liberation, I have seen, it has not worked something very much that was expected. Say in France… So the liberation through anger, when it comes, hatred is the basis of these revolutions and these so called achieved liberations. […]
“Mahamaya Swarupa,” Sahastrara Puja. Cabella Ligure (Italy), May 8 1994.
Today is a unique combination of Mothers’ Day in many countries and Sahastrar Day for Sahaj 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, […]
Shri Ganesha puja. Berlin (Germany), 21 July 1993.
Today we are going to worship Shri Ganesha.
As you know in the whole of Europe, America, England, they have lost faith in Shri Ganesh; nor do they care for His powers and for His blessings. As a result, all His blessings are not on these countries.
The first blessing of Shri Ganesha, which is, I think is the highest, is the wisdom; that we learn what is good for us and what is bad for us, […]
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.And also, […]
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 Buddha Puja. Shudy Camps, near Cambridge (England). 31 May 1992.
Today we have assembled here to do Shri Buddha Puja. I don’t know how many of you have read of Buddha’s life, and how ultimately He achieved His enlightenment. I don’t know how many of you have really seen the Buddhists or have met them, those who call themselves Buddhist. As in every religion, all of them got lost into some sort of a fundamentalism, […]
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. […]
Shri Gauri Puja, Auckland (New Zealand), 8 April 1991.
Gauri is the mother of Shri Ganesha and She produced Shri Ganesha because She was having a bath, and to protect Her chastity She created Shri Ganesha.
In the same way, Kundalini is the Gauri and we have got Ganesha sitting in the Mooladhara Chakra. So we have Mooladhara as the abode of the Gauri, of Kundalini, and the protection of the Kundalini is done by Shri Ganesha. […]
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, […]
Shri Hanumana Puja. Frankfurt (Germany), 31 August 1990.
You can sit here also, some of you, it’s good… I think you can come here, there is room. Some of you can move here so that they can also come here, so it won’t be a problem. You sit in front here. They are better, you see. Good. Open this door, would be all right. It’s all right, you can open the door if you like. It’s all right. […]
Raksha Bandhan. Los Angeles (USA), 7 August 1990.
So, this day is extremely important in a way for Sahaja Yogis to observe and I’m happy that I am here because it’s very important also for America. As I told you that, I have already talked to you how the war between Alexander and Poros was finished because of a sister’s intervention. And also how Shri Krishna whose sister was Draupadi, Vishnumaya was born as Draupadi and how He came to save Her chastity by rushing all the way from Dwarika. […]
Shri Adi Kundalini puja. Mödling (Austria), 19 June 1990.
Today we have assembled here to do the Kundalini Puja. Once we had done it in India long, long time back and this is the first time we are doing this puja here in Austria.
This is the puja of the Adi Kundalini, is the Primordial Kundalini. [speaks aside] You must have seen in the hand of Athena, who is the Primordial Mother, there is a power which is a snake in the left hand. […]
Shri Hanumana Puja. Margate (UK), 23 April 1989.
It is such a joy today, and the whole atmosphere seems to be bubbling with it, as if the angels are singing. And the speciality of Hanumana was that He was an angel. Angels are born like angels. They are angels, and they are not human beings. They’re born with the angelic qualities. But now, you all have become angels from the human beings. It’s a very great achievement of Sahaja Yoga. […]
Shri Mahakali Puja. Blutenburg, Munich (Germany), 16 October 1987.
I was told that we have a very beautiful place for this puja and I was amazed how everything is working out so beautifully for all of you. You are all very lucky people I must say. Moreover that this place was called as the “fort of flowers” and now it was called as a “fort of blood”, bloody fort. But I think with all these flowers it should become the “fort of flowers” […]
Shri Bhoomi/ Shri Dhara Puja, Shudy Camps (UK), 3 August 1986.
Today we have assembled here to do the puja of the Mother Earth. We call it as the ‘Bhoomi Puja’, ‘Shri Dhara Puja’. She’s called as ‘Dhara’. As you know, ‘dha’ means ‘sustain’. Ra-dha – the one who sustains the energy is Radha. And Dhara, which is the one which is sustenance itself, She sustains us. On Her we live.
As you know this Mother Earth is revolving with a tremendous speed, […]
Shri Mahalakshmi Puja. Sangli (India), 6 January 1986.
I hope you all enjoyed your stay in Ganapatipule. The problem was that we could not arrange the cooking nearer your stay when you were here to walk a lot. But that walking was, I think, quite nice and must have helped you. It’s good for diarrhea and other problems that you have.
Actually, I had seen the place but I hadn’t seen the, all the hostels and residential places. […]
Shri Vishnumaya Puja. Wimbledon, London (UK), 1 September 1985.
Today’s Puja of Vishnumaya, who was the sister of Shri Krishna, was not scheduled as such in an international pujas that we do. But they say for the love of God when all the devotees assemble, God also has to break many rules, and that’s how this puja has been accepted to be done. At least once it should be done, I think, was a good idea. […]
Devi Puja. San Diego, California (USA), 31 May 1985.
May God bless you.
Please be seated. (Just to record, hmm?)
It’s such a pleasure to be in the ashram in San Diego. And it’s such a beautiful place, so much expressing the love of God, the Divine, the way it wants to help you at every step. If you want to have an ashram, if you want to have a proper place, you want to look after your children well, […]
Rutumbhara Pradnya – part II, Guru Purnima Seminar of Lodge Hill (UK), 23rd of July, 1983.
Sahaja Yogis sing (Marthi 4) Bhaiya kay. taya to Shri Mataji
Bhaya kāy. tayā prabhu jyāchā re (x4)
When we belong to God, what is there to fear?
Sarv. visarali prabhu may. zhāli (x2)
We forget everything in the Divinity
Purna jayāchi vāchā re (x2)
And we become completely lost in God
Bhaya kāy. tayā prabhu jyāchā re (x4)
When we belong to God, […]
Devi Puja. Sydney (Australia), 14 March 1983.
Now you all have realised by this time, that within us lies the peace, the beauty, the glory of our being. There’s an ocean of all that. We cannot seek it outside. We have to go within; what they call ‘in the meditative state’ you seek it, you enjoy it.
Like, when you are thirsty, you go to a river or you go to an ocean and try to quench your thirst. […]
It’s better now. I think brain activity has stopped quite a lot.
“Mother you be in our brain,” puja in Adelaide (Australia), 4 March 1983.
So it’s very nice to arrive here among all of you, and I’m sorry for what has happened before my coming here.
But, as I also told you that, nature also can be awakened with the presence of a Divine personality, and once it is awakened it starts behaving in a manner, […]
Shri Saraswati Puja, Dhulia (India), 14 January 1983.
With love all kinds of creative action takes place. You see how Raulbai has love for me and in this place you all also got new idea of creating a beautiful thing. And as love will increase your creativity will develop. So the basis of all creativity of Saraswati is love. If there is no love there is no creativity. It is even in the deeper sense, you see; […]
Shri Mahalakshmi puja. Kolhapur (India), 1 January 1983.
Today again is a new year’s day, every new year comes, because we have to take to something that is new. It has been so arranged that the sun has to move for 365 days and again a new year has to come. Actually the whole solar system is moving in a spiral way. So, there is definitely a higher, higher state of this solar system. Every year it is rising higher in a spiral way. […]
A Solution to Come, Public Programme. Caxton Hall, London (UK), 16 August 1982.
These days, when you read newspapers or you meet people you get the feeling that everybody is waiting for a disaster or for some sort of a solution that has to come.
This feeling that comes to us is also something very innate, something from our unconscious because the situation that we see around seems to be quite dangerous. Not that we get upset with the financial problems or with other mundane type of problems that we have had, […]
Public Program, “Mooladhara, Swadisthan, Nabhi, Void”. Derby (UK), 10 July 1982.
I thank all the Sahaja Yogis from Derbyshire and Birmingham for giving Me this opportunity to talk to the seekers of this place. We have seekers in the modern times, is something very unique. We never had seekers before, at least not so many.
There used to be people who would seek money, as there are many who are seeking these days, who would seek countries after countries, […]
Guru Puja, “Establishing the Guru Principle” Nightingale Lane Ashram, London (UK), July 4th, 1982
Shri Mataji: Please, be seated. Who’s going to translate Me?
Shri Mataji: Why don’t you take one of these, Gregoire?
Warren: Mother, that is the public address microphone – they won’t be able to hear You. This is for the recording on the tape.
Shri Mataji: Then how will they hear him? Will it…?
Warren: Mother has to have this one… […]
Public Program. Brighton (UK), 14 May 1982.
Shri Mataji: Oh, I would suggest that first let them ask questions today. So I keep myself there…If you have any questions, it’s better to ask me first. So that your mind is at rest. I’m glad to stand…better to see people better. Am I better here or on the ground?
Now, first of all it’s better to ask the questions because yesterday when we started this question session people got little deviated. […]
Public Program Day 1, “The Left Side: Problems of Subconscious”. Hove, near Brighton, UK, 13 May 1982.
[First three minutes are without sound]
But as I told you there could be good conditionings. In the way, in the same way, you can have good habits and bad habits. If habits inhibit or obstruct your ascent, they also can help to stabilize you. The conditioning comes to you from the matter with which we are dealing every day. […]
Easter Puja, “The Creation of Lord Jesus”. Nightingale Lane Ashram, London (UK), 11 April 1982.
Today we are celebrating the day which is a very, very important issue: absolutely the most important, we can say, day, when such a great happening took place. And it had to take place that way because all, in a way, was that strict.
In my last lectures, I have told you how Christ was created first in the heavens. In the Devi Bhagvat, […]
Attention. Dollis Hill, London (England), 26 May 1980.
Today I am going to talk to you about attention: what is attention, what is the movement of attention and what are the ways and methods of raising our attention. Keep it in broad ways. Alright? But when I am saying all these things you must know that I am talking to you individually – it’s not about others. Always the first thing human beings do is, when I am speaking to you, […]
Advice for Effortless Meditation. London (UK), 1 January 1980.
In the same way the vibrations, the vibrations are coming, they are radiated. What you have to do is to expose yourself to it. The best way is not to put in any effort. Don’t worry at what point you have a problem. Say, many people during meditation, I have seen if they catch somewhere they go on looking after it. You just don’t have to worry. […]
The Spirit 1977.
[The Spirit is] the most precious thing that we have within ourselves. The preciousness of your Spirit is immeasurable and that’s why it is called as a thing of eternal value – because it is infinite. You cannot measure [it].
Now God, The Almighty, we say is Sat-Chit-Anand. Sat means the Truth. The Truth we understand in human terminology is relative. But the Sat I am telling you [about] is the Absolute from where all the relations start. […]
