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. […]
Easter Puja, “You must forgive”, Hotel Pride, Nagpur (India), March 23th, 2008
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. […]
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. […]
Shivaratri Puja, Pune (India), 16 March 2003.
Shri Mataji is silent for about six minutes before speaking.
Today we are going to worship Shri Shiva, Sadashiva. His quality is that He is forgiveness personified. The amount of forgiveness He has, has helped many of us to exist, otherwise this world would have perished, so many would have been finished because you know what is the condition of human beings. They don’t understand what is wrong, what is right. […]
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. […]
Questions by doctors to Shri Mataji. Ealing, London (UK), 2000
With translations of Hindi comments in italics and brackets
Shri Mataji: So the … which is very tough becomes loose, and the heat is absorbed.
Doctor: Shri Mataji, would the onions as well, they need to be hot?
Shri Mataji: [Yes, very hot.] As far as you can bear it. As far as you can bear it. It’s a very simple thing. […]
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, […]
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, […]
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, […]
‘Money Orientation’, Adi Shakti puja, Cabella Ligure, 4 June 1995.
Today we have gathered here to do the Kundalini puja or the Adi Shakti puja. There’s a difference between the two: Adi Shakti is the total power of God, of His desire, while [Adi] Kundalini is the one that is reflected, part which is reflected, in the human beings as Kundalini. So there’s a difference between the Adi Kundalini and the Adi Shakti.
Adi Shakti is the Parashakti, […]
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, […]
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, […]
Public Program, Philadelphia (USA), 15 October 1993.
I bow to all the seekers of Truth. This song that you are listening to has been written by a poet called Namadeva about sixteenth century and what he’s singing there is, “Oh, Mother, give me my yoga.” Yoga means the union with the Divine.
I said I bow to you all because you’re seekers of Truth. At the very outset, one has to know that Truth is what it is. […]
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, […]
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. […]
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 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. 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, […]
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. […]
Shri Adi Guru Puja. Cabella Ligure (Italy), July 28th, 1991.
Today, you are all here to worship your Guru. It is a common practice, specially in India, that you must worship your guru, and the guru has to fully be in control of his disciples. Guru Principle is extremely strict, and the strictness made many people could not conform to the ideals of a disciple. In those days the guru had to be, absolutely, the authority and it was the guru who would decide which disciples he’ll have. […]
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 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 Saraswati Puja. Vancouver (Canada), 11 August 1990.
When they asked Me what puja we should have in Vancouver, I had heard about this ashram that it is placed in very beautiful surroundings of nature and, as nature is being created by the power of Saraswati, I thought best would be to have the Puja of Saraswati here. Another thing is that when people live in nature, they become extremely creative, their delicate feelings are preserved and they are never in a rush; […]
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. […]
Беседа с сахаджа йогами о лидерах
6 Марта 1990
Вы в порядке [ ha tikke], свечу ей на левый свадистан, левую руку к фото.
Сядьте на землю и говорите Атхарву Ширшу, а также поднимите вашу Кундалини свечой, вам нужны три свечи. Одна спереди, другая сбоку, а третьей поднимайте, тогда всё придёт в порядок. Речь на Маратхи (?) Плохая женщина, она действительно богата …
вы в порядке, но они также должны переехать. Это что-то вроде плохой атмосферы, […]
First puja of India tour ’89, Alibag (India), 17 December 1989.
Welcome to you all. It has been little bit delayed but just now they have informed Me that the plane is delayed even much more so I thought it’s better to have the puja now, though the English had told us that they would like to attend from the very beginning. They always get many more pujas, that may be the reason!
So now we have all arrived here and we are going to start this pilgrimage of travelling together. […]
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, […]
Shri Pallas Athena Puja. Greece, 24 May 1989.
Everything in Sahaja Yoga is very scientific, is all pre-planned I think, and is all significant. For example, today is Wednesday and we have never had any Puja on a Wednesday because I was born on Wednesday.
So I was thinking if the Puja starts before twelve o’clock we’ll be able to manage it because I was born at twelve. So every child has to sleep after twelve o’clock, […]
Shri Hanumana Puja. Margate (UK), 23 April 1989.
It is such a joy today, and the whole atmosphere seems to be bubbling with it, as if the angels are singing. And the speciality of Hanumana was that He was an angel. Angels are born like angels. They are angels, and they are not human beings. They’re born with the angelic qualities. But now, you all have become angels from the human beings. It’s a very great achievement of Sahaja Yoga. […]
Advice, “Introspection and Meditation”. Shudy Camps (UK), 18 June 1988.
This year we won’t be having I think, public programs in UK, because also there are certain circumstances. But whenever there is a circumstance which, somehow or other, changes our programs, we must immediately know that there is a purpose behind all that change, and we must immediately accept it with an open heart that Divine wants us to change. Supposing I am going on a road and people say, […]
Easter Puja, Ashram of Pichini, Rome (Italy), April 19th, 1987
Happy Easter to all of you!
It’s a great day to come to Rome to celebrate the Resurrection of Christ. Now we have to do the Resurrection of Christianity, which is just moving in the opposite direction of Christ’s Resurrection.
As you know that Christ was just Chaitanya, but He came in the body of Chaitanya. The whole body was made of Chaitanya, and He resurrected Himself to show to the world that you can resurrect yourself also, […]
Talk to Sahaja Yogis, with questions/answers, St.Martin’s Lane, Covent Garden, London (UK), 8 April 1987.
Some of you can come in front, Come along there’s room… (laughs) Come along, there’s room here. Come in …there’s room here (looks at prasad)… all full of sweets. Oh God… I didn’t see all that (laughs).
[From now on video and verified transcript begins]
I’ll have some water… Thank you (indistinct… and bring My purse here.)
I’m just watching all the beauty (She laughs). […]
Welcome Puja at Chalmala, English part, Alibag (India), 21 December 1986.
Shri Mataji explains that She will first talk in English then in Marathi.
English talk starts at 7:43
I bow to all the Sahaja Yogis.
In this beautiful surround, surroundings, many of you are wondering why God has created these beautiful things. Because you people had to come on this Earth and enjoy the beauty that is one of the reasons. And now God feels very much fulfilled with the joy and satisfaction and a kind of a completion of His desire. […]
Shri Kartikeya Puja. Grosshartpenning, Munich (Germany), 13 July 1986.
I’m sorry for being late. I did not know that this program is in a beautiful place like this. And here you see a beautiful painting of Michelangelo expressing the desire of the Divine, your Father, to save you, to help you out and its working out.
In Germany we have had very great aggressive happenings. And that brought forth a devastating effect on the Western Life, […]
Sankranti Puja (English and Marathi). Rahuri, Maharashtra, India, 14 January 1986.
Please be sited.
Today is a sad day for you people, we’ll be now parting. I may not be able to meet you in Bombay. Maybe for a year this may not happen for some of you, and I would like to give you a little advice about the growth within yourself.
It is believed by people that God is helping us and we are in His kingdom. […]
Shri Mahalakshmi Puja. Sangli (India), 6 January 1986.
I hope you all enjoyed your stay in Ganapatipule. The problem was that we could not arrange the cooking nearer your stay when you were here to walk a lot. But that walking was, I think, quite nice and must have helped you. It’s good for diarrhea and other problems that you have.
Actually, I had seen the place but I hadn’t seen the, all the hostels and residential places. […]
Shri Mahaganesha Puja. Ganapatipule (India), 1 January 1986.
Today we all have assembled here to pay our respect to Shri Ganesha.
Ganapatipule has a special significance – because He is Mahaganesha. The Ganesha at Mooladhara becomes Mahaganesha in the Virata, that is the brain. That means it is the seat of Shri Ganesha. That means Shri Ganesha governs from that seat the principle of innocence. As you know very well it is placed at the back in the region of optic thalamus, […]
Shri Vishnumaya Puja. Wimbledon, London (UK), 1 September 1985.
Today’s Puja of Vishnumaya, who was the sister of Shri Krishna, was not scheduled as such in an international pujas that we do. But they say for the love of God when all the devotees assemble, God also has to break many rules, and that’s how this puja has been accepted to be done. At least once it should be done, I think, was a good idea. […]
Shri Ganesha Puja. Brighton (UK), 4 August 1985.
Today we have gathered here on the right occasion and very auspicious day to worship Shri Ganesha. Shri Ganesha is the first Deity that was created so that the whole Universe is filled with auspiciousness, with peace, bliss, and spirituality. He is the source. He’s the source of spirituality. As a result of that all other things follow. Like when it rains and is windy you feel a coolness in the atmosphere. […]
Guru Puja, Paris (France), 29 June 1985.
(Gavin Brown reads out prayer to Shri Ganesha in English at beginning of puja)
I believe you all say these things, and you listen to it, and you say it from your heart.
Only the one who are united with God can worship Shri Ganesha. And Shri Ganesh worships your Mother.
First of all, one must understand that there’s a combination of a Mother and a guru. Because guru is a very hard task master. […]
Public Program. Geneva (Switzerland), 11 June 1985.
I bow to all the seekers of truth.
But the truth has two sides: the illusion that we see can look like truth, and the essence of the illusion also may appear to be truth. But the other side is absolute and has to be felt, has to be experienced on your central nervous system. It’s not a mental projection that we can think of, nor emotional imagination, but truth is what it is, […]
Devi Puja. San Diego, California (USA), 31 May 1985.
May God bless you.
Please be seated. (Just to record, hmm?)
It’s such a pleasure to be in the ashram in San Diego. And it’s such a beautiful place, so much expressing the love of God, the Divine, the way it wants to help you at every step. If you want to have an ashram, if you want to have a proper place, you want to look after your children well, […]
Evening before Sahastrara puja, “You have to be in nirvikalpa”. Vienna, May 4, 1985.
It’s very gratifying to see so many Sahaja Yogis have come to celebrate the Sahastrar day.
Without breaking the Sahastrara we could not have achieved the ascent en masse. But the Sahastrara, which is the brain, has gone into too much complications in the West and the nerves are very much twisted, one upon another. To keep Sahastrara open should be very easy if the Western brains could understand and be aware about your Mother. […]
Birthday Puja. Melbourne (Australia), 17 March 1985.
I am very joyous today to see all of you celebrating my birthday as well as having the national programme same day. It’s a good combination we have in the month of March. It’s regarded as springtime in India – madhumas (मधुमास). That’s what you sing, madhumas. And as you know 21st March is the equinox, so it is a balance and also the centre of all the signs you have in the horoscope. […]
Pre-Christmas Talk and Farewell Puja. Montague Hall Hounslow (UK), 23 November 1984.
So yesterday was a nice day for all of us, and I said something of a different level. We’ve been talking all the time about the mundane things and these things sometimes are very … are of so much importance, we think. But when I talked to you yesterday, I hope you all realized that we have to now jump into another realm of a subtler understanding of Sahaja Yoga. […]
