Talk of the Evening Eve of Diwali. Noida (India), 10 November 2007.
(Translation from Hindi)
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. […]

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, […]
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. […]
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, 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”,. 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. 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, […]
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, […]
New Year’s Eve Puja, Kalwe (India), 31 December 2001.
(translation from Hindi)
Today I got late and it is the power of your love which has brought Me here. Your Mother’s health is little disturbed and the desire is very strong and things are working out because of that. I want that your power of desire should get stronger, too. You should think for yourself what you have done in this regard. You should introspect and see that what hard work have you done for 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. […]
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, […]
Guru Puja, “Introspection, love and purity” Cabella Ligure (Italy), 8 July 2001.
You don’t know how your Mother feels to see so many people who have become, really, gurus, themselves. They have been seeking the Truth in very difficult times. They have been wanting to know what is the Truth. And this difficult time, itself, has served to act upon your minds that, what is happening in this world, whatever we are seeing around us, in the whole world also, […]
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”,. 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”, 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. […]
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. […]
Birthday puja (Hindi). New Delhi (India), 21 March 1999.
Hindi Part (for subtitles)
(Translation from Hindi:)
After seeing this love, my heart is filled. And thinking that love is such a big power by which so many people are attracted and become happy. This is such a surprising thing. In this kalyug, no one would have seen this greatness of love. I think that after seeing this, all of you should learn to increase your love. […]
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, 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. […]
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. The whole event was worked out so beautifully by the French. Especially people from South Africa, from Benin, from Ivory Coast, from Kenya, and also many others who have come from various countries, have shown their talent, […]
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. 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. 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. 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. 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. Firstly, this country has got such a lot of petrol and if discoveries are made there’s much more. Then secondly, you have got beautiful timber. Then thirdly you’ve got lot of steel, […]
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. 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. […]
“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, […]
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. 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, 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 Realisation I didn’t tell you, “Don’t do this.” “Don’t do that.” I never told you that, […]
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 Ganesha Puja. Cabella (Italy), 30 August 1992.
Last time you had asked Me for Gurupada, and you should know that the essence of Guru is Shri Ganesha, the innocence. You must be knowing the story of a very devoted wife, faithful wife, of a sati. Her name was Anasuya, and she was so religious and so dedicated that they say that the wives of all the gods, Brahma, Vishnu, Mahesha, got very jealous of her. […]
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, […]
Easter Puja. Magliano Sabina, Rome (Italy), 19 April 1992.
This is a great day for all of us to rejoice and to enjoy this Resurrection of Christ. The Resurrection of Christ took place to open our Agnya center because it was a very subtle center as you know, very complicated with the ideas people had from their conditioning and from their ego, were so much clogging the Agnya Chakra that Kundalini could have been impossible to pass through. […]
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), 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. 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. Prague (Czech Republic), 18 August 1991.
They have done three songs, have they? One more … one more …
[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. 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”. 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. […]
“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. […]
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, […]
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, […]
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, “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. 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. […]
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. […]
