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. […]

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, Be One With Yourself First Nirmal Temple, Cabella Ligure (Italy)

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 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. […]

Sahastrara Puja, Watch Yourself Nirmal Temple, Cabella Ligure (Italy)

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; […]

Mahashivaratri Puja Pune (India)

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, […]

Shri Ganesha Puja, You Have To Protect The Innocent Nirmal Temple, Cabella Ligure (Italy)

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. […]

Public Program Royal Albert Hall, London (England)

Public Program in Royal Albert Hall. London (UK), 14 July 2001.
I bow to all the seekers of truth. Some of you have found the truth, some of you have not found it fully, and some of you have not found it at all. But if you look around in today’s situation, you’ll have to agree there’s a big turmoil going on. Countries after countries are taking to all kinds of wrong things. Lot of cold war is on, […]

11th Day of Navaratri Nirmal Temple, Cabella Ligure (Italy)

Navaratri Puja. Cabella Ligure (Italy), 8 October 2000.
Today we are going to worship the Devi, called as Amba, and by many other names. She is the last, we should say, the “residual power”. When She has done everything, She becomes the Kundalini and settles in the triangular bone of yours. This is the Mooladhar Chakra. But actually She is expressed more on the left side, because, that time, She is purely the Amba.
This left side is a very, […]

Talk after Sahastrara Puja, Penetrate Your Attention Nirmal Temple, Cabella Ligure (Italy)

Talk after Sahastrara 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. […]

Sahastrara puja, Attain that Sahaja state Nirmal Temple, Cabella Ligure (Italy)

Sahastrara puja, “Attain that Sahaja state”,  Cabella Ligure (Italy), 07 May 2000.
Thirty years back, when Sahastrara 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, 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, […]

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.

Play on Joan Of Arc and Talk, Eve of Diwali Puja Novi Ligure (Italy)

Evening Talk before Diwali. Nova Ligure (Italy), 24 October 1998

So I wish you all a very happy Diwali, and a very prosperous New Year. The whole evening was so full of joy, peace that I don’t know how to describe.

Adi Shakti Puja, You Must Develop Humility Nirmal Temple, 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, […]

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, […]

Adi Shakti Puja, Respect the Mother Earth Nirmal Temple, 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. […]

Shri Ganesha Puja, You Must Fight For Innocence Nirmal Temple, Cabella Ligure (Italy)

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 Mahalakshmi Puja, We have to live like one family Moscow (Russia)

Shri Mahalakshmi Puja. Moscow (Russia), 16 July 1996.
ETVD 2017-0127 MM
Tonight, we are going to worship the Lakshmi Principle within us. Lakshmi is the Goddess of wealth, prosperity and also of health Actually your country is already blessed, because you have so many things here.

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. 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, Mature and Achieve the State of A Guru Nirmal Temple, Cabella Ligure (Italy)

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, Mahamaya Swarupa Nirmal Temple, Cabella Ligure (Italy)

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, […]

Christmas Puja, Rationality can never make you understand Divinity Ganapatipule (India)

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 Krishna Puja, River Yamuna and Shri Krishna’s life Yamuna Nagar (India)

Shri Krishna puja. Yamuna Nagar (India), 11 December 1993.
Today we are going to have the puja of Shri Krishna.
In Shri Krishna’s life the river Yamuna has played a very great role. Yamuna River is a very deep river and the water has a blue colour, which they say Shri Krishna also had. While the River Ganges flows faster and much shallower than this. Next year, maybe, we might go to Allahabad, might be able to see the two rivers meet. […]

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. […]

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. […]

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 Buddha Puja, The Search for the Absolute Shudy Camps Park, Shudy Camps (England)

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, […]

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.
I bow to all the seekers of truth.
If we are the real seekers of truth, we have to be honest about it and sincere, so that we are sincere to ourselves, and we have justified our own existence in this world. There are so many sadhakas, morning till evening they are working out some sort of a ritual, some sort of a meditation, some sort of a bhakti, […]

Public Program Day 2 Štvanice, Prague (Czech Republic)

Public Program. Prague (Czech Republic), 18 August 1991.
[Hindi]
They have done three songs, have they? One more … one more …
[Hindi]
[Yogi asks about taking of photos during Shri Mataji’s talk.]
But when I am talking, one should not.
You have to sing one song more, smaller one. Hamid, My spectacles. My spectacles.
[Yogi explains to Shri Mataji that they have already spoken about chakras, etc.]
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. […]

Shri Buddha Puja, You must become desireless Brielpoort Deinze, Deinze (Belgium)

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. […]

Public Program Day 2 Royal Exhibition Building, Melbourne (Australia)

Public Program. Royal Exhibition Building, Melbourne, Australia, 12 April 1991.
I bow to all the seekers of truth. As I told you yesterday, that truth is what it is. We cannot understand it, you have to feel it. We cannot conceptualize it, and you cannot feel it also at this human awareness. We have to become a subtler being, as described in all the Scriptures, that you are to be born again and that you have to become the Spirit, […]

Mahashivaratri Puja, Four Nadis of the Heart Chianciano Terme (Italy)

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, […]

10th Day of Navaratri, The deities are watching you Geneva (Switzerland)

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 Mahakali Puja, Purity and Collectivity Centre Culturel Thierry Le Luron, Le Raincy (France)

Shri Mahakali puja, “Collectivity & Purity”. Le Raincy (France), 12 September 1990.
We have had Bhairava puja in Belgium and now I thought today let us have Mahakali puja because yesterday’s experience, last night’s experience, was the work of Mahakali.
She has a double role all the time, she is at two extremes. On one side she is full of joy, giver of joy, she’s very happy when she sees her disciples are joyous. Joy is her own quality, […]

Shri Hanumana Puja, Electromagnetic Force Schwetzingen, Schwetzingen Palace (Germany)

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. […]

Birthday Puja, Sincerity Curzon Hall, Sydney (Australia)

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. […]

Learn from Your Guru Ganapatipule (India)

Guru Puja, Creativity Lago di Braies (Italy)

Guru Puja. Lago Di Braie (Italy), 23 July 1989.

Today we have had to spend a little more time than normal to get to the stage where we could really worship the Guru. When we worship our Guru, we have to know actually we are trying to awaken the Guru Principle within ourselves. It’s not only that you are here to worship your Guru. You may worship many-a-times, maybe the vibrations would flow, Maybe that you might get filled with that and you feel elevated, […]

Paramchaitanya Puja Taufkirchen (Germany)

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,
hello, hello!

I think better take them out for a while. They didn’t like. Stops. (Babies suddenly stop crying. Laughter. Shri Mataji laughs)]

secret. […]

Diwali Puja Shudy Camps Park, Shudy Camps (England)

Diwali Puja, Shudy Camps (UK), 13 November 1988.

Today we are here, all of us, to celebrate the Diwali, that is dipavali, meaning the rows of lights.

In the darkness of Kali Yuga when you find from every place confusion of the worst type creating the darkness which cannot be penetrate into, and which looks like a solid mountain around us, and which can never be covered, as we feel, by the grace of God. And even with the grace of God it would never melt. […]

Shri Vishnumaya Puja, Cure That Left Vishuddhi Shudy Camps Park, Shudy Camps (England)

“Cure that Left Vishuddhi” Shri Vishnumaya puja. Shudy Camps (England), 20 August 1988.
This was least expected that we’ll have a Puja here or we’ll have any program of this kind. But I think something was left out of the whole program of such a fast one as you know I had to do, going from London to Frankfurt to America to Bogota, to be back, then Andorra and all these places still, I thought, now it is finished. […]

Shri Krishna Puja, The State of Witnessing Como (Italy)

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. […]

Shri Buddha Puja YMCA Camp Surf, San Diego (United States)

Shri Buddha Puja. San Diego (USA), 23 July 1988.
Today we have decided to celebrate the Buddha Jayanti, it’s the day of Buddha’s birth. In the whole map of time, Buddha came to this earth at a time when it was so important for Him to come. That time, especially in India, we had two types of people: one, who were very ritualistic, trying to be extremely strict and disciplined; and the another were the people who were too much conditioned and were full of so-called devotion to God. […]
