Guru Puja, “How to Become a Guru”, Cabella Ligure, Italy, 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. […]

I never expected all of you to be here present for the puja. I don’t know how you have managed to come (laughter and applause). Otherwise, it’s a very important day today for all of us because you know how Christ died. He was crucified. He was put on a cross and then He died.
Wonderful the way he said about you people. He asked for forgiveness from God. […]

(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. […]

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. […]

Sahasrara 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 Sahasrara was opened out, which was really a very charismatic thing that happened.
I never expected that in my lifetime I will be able to work it out, but it has been. And so many of you have got your Sahasrara opened. Without that, […]

Navaratri Puja, Birthday of Shri Gauri, Ellenville, New York (USA), 12 October 2003.

Shri Ganesha Puja: They Are All Incarnations Campus, Cabella Ligure (Italy)

Shri Ganesha Puja. Cabella (Italy), 13 September 2003

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? It is very, very difficult to say. But with Sahaja Yoga, […]

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.

You are a spiritual personality New York Society for Ethical Culture, New York City (United States)

Public Program. New York (USA), 22 August 2002.

I bow to all the seekers of truth.

Actually we are all seeking the truth. So many of us, but so far, so many couldn’t find and they are lost. But what is the truth? What is the truth about yourself? The truth is that you are not this body, you are not these emotions but what are you? You are the spirit.

All the great saints and incarnations have said that you are the spirit and what we are trying to find out is our selfhood. […]

Easter Puja: You are bound by the religion of love and joy Kilyos, Kilya Hotel Kilyos (Turkey)

Easter Puja. Istanbul (Turkey), 21 April 2002.

Today we have come here to worship Jesus Christ and His Mother.

It’s such a coincidence that the Mother of Christ came and stayed in Turkey. Isn’t it surprising that She should come here after the crucifixion of Christ and stayed here. I wonder if He also came with Her later on? But they say then He went to Kashmir and She was also there. Quite possible, on their way, […]

Adi Shakti Puja:  Humanity has to be saved through you and nobody else Campus, 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. […]

Sahasrara Puja: To Break Sahasrara Campus, Cabella Ligure (Italy)

Sahasrara Puja. Cabella Ligure (Italy), 6 May 2001.

Today, I bow to all the Sahaja Yogis who have found the Truth.

There has been, from ages, the seeking for the Truth. And when people discovered that there’s no other way but to surrender to the Divine that you can find the truth, they did not know how to do it, how to work it out.

There have been seekers all over the world. I went to Turkey and I was amazed there have been lots of Sufis, […]

Shri Ganesha Puja: the sanctity of marriage Campus, Cabella Ligure (Italy)

Shri Ganesha Puja, “Your Innocence Will Save This World,” Cabella Ligure (Italy), 16 September 2000

Today, we have gathered here to do Ganesha Puja.

I know very well that Ganesha is the symbol of purity, of sanctity, and worshipping the innocence. When you are worshipping Shri Ganesh, you have to know that He is the embodiment of innocence.

I wonder if we understand the meaning of “innocence” or not. Innocence is a quality which is innate, […]

Adi Shakti Puja. Nirmal Nagari, Canajoharie, NY (USA), 2 July 2000.

Talk after Sahasrara Puja, “Penetrate Your Attention”,. Cabella Ligure, Italy, 7 May 2000

It was really a wonderful idea to put my attention to all these fields of life which are very important and, as it is, I have attention on all of them and I care for all that. But I would say now you all people put in your attention to it, because it is you who can do something about it. You can start with the nature as they said is this: we have to be kind to the nature.

Sahasrara puja: Attain that Sahaja state Campus, Cabella Ligure (Italy)

Sahasrara puja, “Attain that Sahaja state”,  Cabella Ligure (Italy), 07 May 2000.

Thirty years back, when Sahasrara was opened, I found darkness all over. People were so ignorant. They had no awareness [about] what they have to find. Of course, I found they wanted to find something that was unknown, but they did not know what was unknown, what they have to find. And they were extremely ignorant people, about themselves, and about their surroundings, and about the aim of their life. […]

Christmas Puja Ganapatipule (India)

Christmas Puja, Ganapatipule, India, December 25th 1999

Today we are going to celebrate the birth of Jesus Christ. He came on this earth in a very special way, that He was born to a Virgin. And we can understand as you know as Shri Ganesha was also born in the same way, and as Jesus is a incarnation of Shri Ganesha He had all His powers when He was born, He did not have to bring any outward weapons to show that what powers He had. […]

Diwali Puja: Remove all the darkness of Kali Yuga Delphi, Camping Apollon (Greece)

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. […]

8th Day of Navaratri, The Powers of Shri Mahakali Campus, 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, […]

Shri Ganesha Puja: We must respect Mother Earth Campus, Cabella Ligure (Italy)

Shri Ganesha Puja. “We Must Respect the Mother Earth,” Cabella (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 [have them] be with us. And very innocent they are, extremely innocent. And when we worship Shri Ganesh, […]

Guru Puja: Assimilating the Absolute Knowledge Campus, Cabella Ligure (Italy)

Guru puja, “Assimilating the Absolute Knowledge”, Cabella Ligure (Italy), 1 August 1999.

Since we have come to Cabella, it is the ten years completed! So you can imagine how, in these ten years, we have been able to progress in Sahaja Yoga.

Now, today, we are going to have a Guru puja. As I have said, you are all gurus and you want to worship me as your Guru – is alright – but the main thing one should understand [is] that you have become guru, […]

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. […]

Sahasrara Puja, “Our Awareness has to become Paramchaitanya” Cabella Ligure, (Italy), 9 May 1999.

Today we have gathered here to do the Sahasrara puja.

Sahasrar, the word ‘sahastr’, in Sanskrit language, means ‘one thousand’. And there are one thousand petals in our brain which get enlightened. Of course, the doctors are quarrelling on that point but forget about them.

Now these petals are kept ready for our enlightenment, and these are really the nerves, one thousand nerves, […]

Music will bring glory to Sahaja Yoga, Eve of Sahasrara puja, 08/05/1999,Evening Program

[Talk after the music program and of the Magic Flute]

Sometimes, the words fail to express the feelings of great gratitude for all of you – for putting up this collective effort and such a beautiful concentrated work as a real piece of art. 

I had seen “Magic Flute” long time back, when I was in Berlin, and that time – of course I didn’t understand German language, […]

Easter Puja: We have to establish our meditation Istanbul (Turkey)

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. […]

New Year’s eve Puja: Indian Culture Kalwa (India)

New Year’s eve Puja (English part). Kalve (India), 31 December 1998.

Firstly I will speak in English language as we have many Sahaja Yogis from abroad. They have asked me to talk about Indian culture today because Bombay is the place where Indian culture is disappearing, that’s what they say. But I don’t think so, because the roots are so deep that we cannot give up that culture so fast.

Now as it is for the people who are coming from other countries, […]

Christmas Puja: Become Thoughtlessly Aware Ganapatipule (India)

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, […]

Evening Program, Eve of Christmas Puja Ganapatipule (India)

Evening Program, Eve of Christmas Puja. Ganapatipule (Maharashtra, India), 24 December 1998.

It
is very difficult to describe this inner joy. You can only enjoy it, you can
only feel it. It’s something so innate to see that so many of you have learnt
this difficult music and all of you have been enjoying it.

I
went to various places in the West and I felt that, “Why even small little
children, boys and girls, take to something which is self-destructive? […]

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. […]

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.

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.

Shri Ganesha Puja: Ekakarita Campus, Cabella Ligure (Italy)

Shri Ganesha Puja, “Ekakarita,” Cabella Ligure (Italy), 5 September 1998

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.

The first and foremost thing is that to respect Shri Ganesha is to understand the importance of chastity. Chastity is not only for the women; it is more for the men to observe. […]

Adi Shakti Puja: You Must Develop Humility Campus, 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, […]

Sahasrara Puja: Blessing of Divine Pours Only If Sahasrara is Completely Open Campus, Cabella Ligure (Italy)

Sahasrara Puja. Cabella Ligure (Italy), 10 May 1998.

Today, it’s a great day because Sahasrara 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 Sahasrara and the motherhood go together.

Sahasrara 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, […]

[During the evening program, after some musical performances and a play by the English, the Swiss sahaja yogis acted in a play where they openly denounced the Swiss bank (about its money laundering etc.). Ultimately, they recited the “litany for the doom of Materasura”, the demon of materialism:]

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. As about His creation, you know the story.

He was made out of the Mother Earth, […]

Shri Krishna Puja. Cabella (Italy), 23 August 1997.

Today, we are here to celebrate Krishna puja.

I went to America and they wanted me to have a Mahakali puja. But I said, no, let me talk about Krishna only, because we have to first realize what is the strength of this Puja.

How are we going to establish Shri Krishna within ourselves?

He, Himself has said, that whenever there is a downfall of dharma – dharma doesn’t mean what we understand as Hinduism, […]

Shri Krishna Puja: Freedom Without Wisdom Is Dangerous New York City (United States)

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: Respect the Mother Earth Campus, Cabella Ligure (Italy)

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. […]

Talk: Sahaja Yoga is now on your shoulders & Evening Program Adi Shakti Puja Campus, Cabella Ligure (Italy)

Talk before Adi Shakti Puja (at the End of the Evening Program), Cabella Ligure, May 24th, 1997

It has been a very, very joyful evening for all of us. And we thank all the people who have brought all kinds of entertainment for all of us. I’m really amazed because last time I couldn’t go to Spain despite they had invited Me, but I think somehow it has taken roots there, there are so many people who are now involved in Sahaja Yoga. […]
