Dassehra. Tenth day of Navaratri, Sydney (Australia), 21 October 2007.
Mother looks at yoginis, smiles and says ‘Very happy’.
Please sit comfortably.
Today is the (indistinct) great day , isn’t it (ji) Dassera.
[Yogis organize a microphone for Shri Mataji]
Is it coming?
So today is Dassera, is a very big day in India. They say on this day Ravana was killed. He was the worst enemy of human beings, and he was killed. But whatever it is then, […]
Dassehra. Tenth day of Navaratri, Sydney (Australia), 21 October 2007.
Second day of Navaratri, October 13, 2007, Sydney, Australia
Come here also, come in, sit here, another one also (talking to people), come forward. There are people who could not sit. Can you go and see if every one is inside?
Sorry, I didn’t know you were all here. Now she said, so I said all right.
You can here me there ? All of you? Those who can’t hear raise your hand! [laughter]
All right, […]
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, […]
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 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 Sahasrara 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, […]
Navaratri Puja, Wisdom Through Meditation, Bhakti & Shraddha, Los Angeles (USA), 27 October 2002.
Today, we are going to worship the Goddess. That’s the, first the left side programming is with Her, but later on, at Sahasrara, She’s the Adi Shakti. And, on the left side, whatever She does is already written, as you must have seen, because She’s the memory and She’s the wisdom and, that She protects you, is shown when She uses Her power over the Ganas. […]
Adi Shakti Puja. Cabella Ligure (Italy), 23 June 2002.
Today it’s a different day altogether for all of you because this is the puja of Adi Shakti, and Adi Shakti is a complete personality. It’s not only the Left Side that you know.
You all know only the Left Side, from Shri Ganesha through the ascent of different, different chakras on the Left Side. I didn’t want to tell you about the Right Side to begin with, […]
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, […]
Birthday Puja, Delhi, India 21-03-2002
Translation from Hindi:
I have been watching the magnitude of love. How it has spread into all corners. From where to where it has reached. Upto how many people? No one knows. But I have understood its Principle. Can there be any Principle of love? Love has no Principle.Like an all encompassing divine halo, love has spread far and wide. We have no awareness of it. We do not know it. […]
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. […]
“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. […]
“Destructive Power Of Shri Mahadeva,” 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’s not easy to conceive – also to reach the depth – of His greatness unless and until we are humble. […]
Shri Krishna puja. Cabella Ligure (Italy), 20 August 2000.
Today we are here to worship Shri Krishna within us.
As you know you all have been seeking before coming to Sahaj Yoga. You went to different places, read lots of books and also some of you were lost. And, in that seeking, perhaps you did not know what you were seeking. What you were seeking was to know yourself. In all religions it is said ‘know thyself’: is a common thing all of them have said. […]
Guru Puja, “Shraddha”. Cabella Ligure (Italy), 23 July 2000.
Today we are here to know about guru principle. What does a guru do. Whatever you have, all the precious things within you, he discovers them for your knowledge. Actually it is all there – everything. All the knowledge, all the spirituality, all the joy, is there. (little laughter as a dog walks on stage) Right time! (more laughter). It’s all contained within you. Only thing the Guru does (is) makes you knowledgeable about your knowledge, […]
Christmas Puja, Ganapatipule, India, December 25th 1999
Now that the talk was partly extracted from the “Shores of Bharat” VHS it became evident that the major part of the Puja protocol is missing.
If you happen to come across a Recording of the Christmas Puja from the 25th of December, 1999, please be so kind to provide this tape to the archive.

Today we are going to celebrate the birth of Jesus Christ. […]
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. […]
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. […]
Shri Krishna Puja. Cabella Ligure (Italy), 16 August 1998.
Today we are going to have Shri Krishna Puja. It is a very important thing about the power of Shri Krishna that gives you a witness state. This is very important also because in these days of Kali Yuga and complete confusion of value system, all kinds of turmoil makes a very complex conditions to exist. The state of witnessing is only possible through meditation. You reach the state of thoughtless awareness. […]
Easter Puja. Istanbul (Turkey),
19 April 1998.
Today, we are celebrating the Resurrection of Christ. That
is the greatest message of Christ life, not the crucifixion.
can be crucified and killed, but this dead body of Christ was resurrected from
death. Death itself died and He overcame
It’s a miracle for ordinary human beings, definitely, but not for Christ,
because He was a Divine person, He was Shri Ganesha, He was Omkara Itself. So, […]
Guru Puja. Cabella Ligure (Italy), 20 July 1997.
Today’s puja is very important for us. You all have got your self realisation, you have all the knowledge that is necessary to give realisation to others. You have to know what you have already, that’s very important, because if you do not try your hand and if you do not try to give realisation to others, firstly you will have no faith in yourself – you’ll have no self esteem also. […]
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. […]
Sahasrara Puja, “At Sahasrara you stand on Truth and go beyond Dharma”. Cabella Ligure (Italy), 4 May 1997.
Today we all have assembled here to worship the Sahasrara. As you have realised that Sahasrara is a very important part of the subtle system. Of course this is a great day, in 1970, that this chakra was opened out. But by that, what you have achieved, we have to see it.
First of all when the Kundalini rises she goes to your void, […]
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. […]
Puja of the 73rd Birthday, “Mind is a myth”. Delhi (India), 21 March 1996.
Translation fom Hindi
You are celebrating My birthday with so much love, reverence and respect. Seeing this I think what have I done that you are showing so much love.
Today I am going to tell you a very unusual fact, that this notion within us which we call as mind, is a myth. The myth being, that when we are born, […]
“Achieve Complete Freedom”, Sahasrara Puja, Cabella Ligure (Italy), 7 May 1995.
Today it’s a great day for us, for all the Sahaj Yogis, that on this day – I would say, we are late by one day, or two days – the Sahasrara was opened out. It was just a miracle, I should say, because I didn’t think that I am at a point where it could be done. So I wanted to wait, but some things happened that made me think that it has to be open: it was in such a situation that I felt that if Idelay it anymore now, […]
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, […]
Birthday Puja. Calcutta (India), 21 March 1994.
Every year we have birthdays of various people, and every year we make a vow that this year I will not do this or I will not do that. This is a very good way of seeing how far we have come in life. Many people who really have achieved a very great height in their spiritual life did not need a birthday, but every day they felt it’s a birthday to start, […]
Mahashivaratri Puja. Delhi (India), 14 March 1994.
It’s a great pleasure that from all over the world people have gathered to worship Shiva. Actually we should say it is Sadashiva that we are going to worship today. As you know the difference between Sadashiva and Shri Shiva. Sadashiva is the God Almighty and He is a witness of the play of the Primordial Mother.
The combination between Sadashiva and the Primordial Mother Adi Shakti is just like a moon and the moonlight or the sun and the sunlight. […]
Christmas Puja. Ganapatipule (India), 25 December 1993.
Today we are going to celebrate the birth of Christ. At a very crucial time we are doing that, because there are some anti-Christ who have become in charge of the Christian religion and are talking against the birth of Christ. They have no authority, they are not realized souls, they have no idea of the Divine, nothing, and they are saying that it is all falsehood that She was not a virgin and that Christ was not born that way. […]
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, […]
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, […]
Christmas Puja, Ganapatipule (India), 25 December 1992.
[Hindi translation missing]
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, […]
Hamsa Chakra Puja, Vancouver (Canada), 13 September 1992.
Today we are going to worship the Hamsa Chakra. So far we have been always worshipping a Deity and this is the second time you are worshipping this centre of Hamsa. Now this chakra is, it is, you know, placed between the two eyebrows and two eyes represent the left and the right side. So this centre is very much guided by our eyes, by our ears, by our nose, […]
Guru Puja. Cabella Ligure (Italy), 19 July 1992.
Yesterday, you had asked me for the status of a Guru. It’s a state, It is not a status because status is external, can be bestowed upon anyone, and anybody can say that, “This is your status.” For something external merit, or something, you can give a status to a person. It is a state. ‘State’ means the innate being, evolved to that level that you become the master. […]
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. […]
Navaratri Puja. Cabella (Italy), 13 October 1991
Today we have gathered here to do the Navaratri puja.
There were nine times when the major incarnations of the Mother of this universe were manifested. They are manifested with a purpose. That purpose is to protect Her bhaktas, Her disciples, Her children. This was a binding love, She could not escape it. Mother’s love is binding, She cannot escape it. And She has to manifest it, work it out and give that protection to all her children. […]
Shri Krishna Puja. Cabella Ligure (Italy), 1 September 1991.
Today we have decided to worship the Yogeshwara. I think that is the greatest name of Shri Krishna for us. That means He is the Ishwara of yoga. “Yoga” means “the union,” as you know, with the Divine. But also yoga has another meaning which means “yukti”. In English language, translated properly, not possible, we can call it as – yukti means “the trick”, the trick. But trick is always connected with something funny and bad. […]
Shri Buddha Puja, “You must become desireless”. Deinze (Belgium), 4 August 1991.
Today, we have assembled here to do puja to Buddha.
As you know Buddha was a son of a king. And one day He was shocked to see a very poor man, thin man, walking on the street, very unhappy person, and He felt very sad about it. Then He saw one person who was very sick and about to die. Then He saw a man who was dead and people were carrying him to the cremation ground. […]
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, […]
Mahashivaratri Puja. Chianciano Terme (Italy), 16 February 1991.
Today we have assembled here to worship Sadashiva, which is reflected within us as Shiva, as the spirit. He is reflected in our heart, and as you have seen that the goal of our life was to achieve this state of spirit.
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, […]
Christmas Puja (English/Hindi). Ganipatipule (India), 25 December 1990.
Today we have such a great opportunity to celebrate the birth of Christ. He was born in a manger. All these things are already pre-planned. That He should be born in a manger in difficult situations, to show that whether you are born poor or rich, whether you are born in difficulties or in problems, if you have Divinity within you, it shines by itself. As the Christianity took a very wrong deviated line, […]
Puja for the 67° Birthday, Sydney (Australia), 21 March 1990.
What enthusiasm all over the world! The whole of Sydney, I think, has been drenched of all their flowers. And such nice things to say, the cards and the letters and the beautiful poems, the children are singing beautifully. Words fail to express the feelings of such jubilation and such sincere feeling of happiness.
You needed a Mother to look after you, to care for you and to be able to transform you with lot of wisdom. […]
Navaratri Puja, “Destroy the demons inside yourselves”. Margate (UK), 8 October 1989.
It was very spontaneously decided that we should have the Devi Puja in England. And this is the place where really Devi Puja should be, because it’s the place of Sadashiva and where Adi Shakti should be worshipped.
We have to today understand that why do we do Devi Puja? What is the reason for this Devi Puja? What do we get out of it? […]
Shri Bhairavanath puja. Garlate, Milan (Italy), 6 August 1989.
Today we have gathered here to do puja to Bhairavanath. I think we have not understood the significance of Bhairavanath who runs up and down on the Ida Nadi. Ida Nadi is the nadi of Chandrama, is of the moon. So this is a channel for us to cool down. So the work of Bhairavanathji is to cool us down.
For example, people have a hot temper with their ego, […]
Paramchaitanya Puja. Taufkirchen (Germany), 19 July 1989.
[(A noise is made by the loudspeaker.
Babies start crying.)
Shri Mataji: I
think better take the children out for a while. Just it would be better. Hello,
I think better take them out for a while. They didn’t like. Stops. (Babies suddenly stop crying. Laughter. Shri Mataji laughs)]
was asked to Me, “What puja we are going to have today?” and I kept it a
Sahasrara Puja, “Jump into the Ocean of Love”, Sorrento (Italy) 6 May 1989.
Last night was a night of complete darkness, that they call it as amavasya; and just now only the first phase of the moon has started.

Shri Krishna Puja. Garlate, Como (Italy), 6 August 1988.
Today we have gathered here to worship Shri Krishna.
We must understand the significance of Shri Krishna’s advent on the Vishuddhi chakra.
As you know very well, except for once or twice, Shri Brahmadeva has taken His incarnation. Also once Shri Ganesha has taken His birth as Lord Jesus Christ. But Vishnu tattwa, the principle of Vishnu, has taken many a times birth on this earth, as the Goddess had to take many-a-times Her birth. […]
Guru Puja, The Gravity of Guru Principle, Ansalonga, Andorra, July 31st, 1988
Today we have all gathered here for worshipping your Guru. As you know that the principle of Guru resides in the Void. This is the principle which gives you balance, which gives you a gravity. The gravity that we have in the Mother Earth is expressed through your Guru Principle.
The first point of gravity is that you should have a personality, a character and a temperament [such] that people would see that you are a personality who doesn’t get dissolved into worldly things. […]
