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 Sahastrara 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. […]

Easter Puja, You must forgive The Pride Hotel, Nagpur (India)

Easter Puja, “You must forgive”, Hotel Pride, Nagpur (India), March 23th, 2008
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. […]

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. […]

Shri Mataji speaks:
This is too small. (speaks in Hindi) You can get a good hall here, very easily.

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. […]

Christmas Puja Ganapatipule (India)

Christmas Puja, Ganapatipule (India), 25 December 2003.
Today is a great day because we are celebrating the birth of Jesus Christ. He was such a great spiritual personality, who had to suffer on the cross. This is what many people don’t understand, that why a man of his calibre, of his standing, of his spirituality, should have to go through so many ordeals in life. It is very easy to understand that he was born in a circumstances which was against him, […]

Diwali Puja, The Need for Sincerity Los Angeles (United States)

Diwali Puja. Los Angeles (USA), 9 November 2003.
Today is the great day of Diwali.
That means today is the great day of putting up (?) lights, lights of your heart together to make a greater light for the world to move in a proper direction.

Talk and Marriages Nirmal Temple, Cabella Ligure (Italy)

Talk to Bridegrooms
I’m very happy that you all have decided to marry in Sahaja Yoga, but there are certain responsibilities which you must have. It’s not like other marriages – that today you marry, tomorrow you divorce, then you do this, do that. Nothing of the kind. You are marrying in Sahaja Yoga because we want to strengthen Sahaja Yoga.
You’ll have wife, she’ll look after you, she’ll be kind to you, she’ll be loving you because she is a Sahaja Yogini. […]

Guru Puja Nirmal Temple, Cabella Ligure (Italy)

Guru Puja. Cabella Ligure (Italy), 21 July 2002.
(A loud thunder-clap followed by applause)
In India they were all waiting for the monsoons and they are so worried because the rain did not come. So, I was giving bandhan to the rain and it came here (applause and Mother laughs). And now also they have told, on the television, that it is going to rain in India. But first in Italy! (laughter)
I was told that in Italy you needed rain very much and the first rain you had, […]

Diwali Puja, Soldiers of Divine Love Los Angeles (United States)

Diwali Puja. Lake Piru, near Los Angeles, California (USA) 18 November 2001.
It’s a very, very great day today, I should say, where the evil has been suppressed. The evil that spreads its power all over is only because of two factors: one is that you are not knowledgeable, you are still blind, and you follow things which are not right, but you think are powerful. This illusion creates not only problems, but absolute destruction.
So we faced a very big challenge, […]

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.  […]

7th Day of Navaratri, You all should depend on Paramchaitanya Nirmal Temple, Cabella Ligure (Italy)

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, […]

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, […]

Mahashivaratri Puja New Delhi (India)

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, […]

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.

With us, the realisation is very important, […]

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.

Shri Vishnu Puja, The Basis of Dharma Paris (France)

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. […]

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

“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, […]

Musical Program and Talk About Marriages Ganapatipule (India)

1993-12-24 India Tour: Talk About Marriages – After Music Program
I was very happy to learn that this morning the meditation was done very well collectively. My attention was there on you. We are now going to announce the marriages, the remaining ones today. Before that, I’ve to say the same thing which I’ve said many times, that there is no compulsion for anyone, not at all, to marry a particular person who we have suggested. […]

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. […]

Shri Ganesha Puja, Powers of Shri Ganesha Berlin (Germany)

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, […]

Shri Pallas Athena Puja, You have to be sincere and honest Athens, Sahaja Yoga Center in Athens (Greece)

Shri Pallas Athena Puja. Athens (Greece), 26 April 1993.
It’s a very great day for Me to see so many Sahaja Yogis here who are from this country, Greece. When first I came to Greece, I told my husband that this country is full of vibrations and there have been many evolved souls in this country, but perhaps the people have lost their heritage, but the vibrations are in the atmosphere and one day Sahaja Yoga should prosper here very much. […]

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.And also, […]

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 Durga Mahakali Puja, France is going down and down Paris (France)

Shri Durga Mahakali Puja, Paris (France), 25 July 1992.
Today’s Puja we have arranged of Durga or the Kali. That is the destroying form of the Goddess of all the evil and negativity. This we had to do it in France, because I feel very strongly that day by day, in general, France is going down and down and down. While you people are coming up, the rest of the France is in the most pitiable condition. […]

Guru Puja, Gravity Nirmal Temple, Cabella Ligure (Italy)

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 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.

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, […]

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.

They have done three songs, have they? One more … one more …

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. […]

“Realise Your Own Divinity”, Sahastrar Puja, Ischia (Italy) 5 May 1991

Today we have assembled here to celebrate the Sahastrar Day which was opened in 1970 on this date. I find this beautiful canopy is like our Sahastrar. And [it’s] so very apt to have this beautiful arrangement for Sahastrar Day.

We have to understand what happens when the Sahastrara opens.

When the Kundalini passes through the five centres it enters into the area which we call as limbic area. […]

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.
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. […]

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, […]

Mahashivaratri Puja. Chianciano Terme (Italy), 16 February 1991.

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, […]
