In Russia the people, somehow, are very open-minded, not only that, the Scientists especially, are very open-minded and were suppressed very much.

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, […]

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. […]

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, […]

I am really a proud Mother to see so many sahaja yogis.

Advice to Realised Souls, Bordi (India), 26 January 1977.

I’ll try to cover most of the points that you have asked but I must say that I was very happy to hear most of the questions because that shows that your enquiry is getting subtler and subtler; that you already know about the gross side of chakras and now you want to know the subtler forms.

Now the first question, which should be taken up first, […]

The Spirit (Location Unknown)

The Spirit 1977.
 
[The Spirit is] the most precious thing that we have within ourselves. The preciousness of your Spirit is immeasurable and that’s why it is called as a thing of eternal value – because it is infinite. You cannot measure [it].
 
Now God, The Almighty, we say is Sat-Chit-Anand. Sat means the Truth. The Truth we understand in human terminology is relative. But the Sat I am telling you [about] is the Absolute from where all the relations start. […]

Gudi Padwa, Meditation in thoughtless awareness New Delhi (India)

Gudi Padwa, “Meditation in thoughtless awareness”. Delhi (India), 30 March 1976.
We cannot meditate; we only can be in meditation. When we say we are going to meditate it has no meaning. We have to be in meditation. Either you are inside the house or outside the house. You cannot be inside the house and then say that: “Now I’m outside the house.” Or when you are outside the house you cannot say: “I’m inside the house.”
In the same way, […]
