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, […]

[English translation from Hindi]
Anniversary of Guru Nanak Birthday, Noida House (India), November 1999.
Today is the birthday of Guru Nanaka. It is being celebrated through-out the world with so much of zeal that I have not seen in India. For the first time it has been advertised in so many papers and by different means.Guru Nanaka always talked of Sahaja Yoga. Everything else, He said, is just showing off. About religion He said that observing fasts, […]
Evening Program and Talk, Cabella, Italy 07-05-1999
It was really a great, enjoyable night. We never felt any time passing. Your enthusiasm to celebrate Sahasrara Puja is very remarkable. I cannot imagine how joyous it is to be in collective like this, all of us, and enjoying the bliss of joy, peace and love. I was surprised at certain great talents that came up and who played so beautifully. Individually they were very, very good, something very surprising, […]
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, […]
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, […]
Transcript of 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 Omkara. 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 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 (Laughter) – it crossed you. It’s 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. […]
Public Program Day 2. 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. […]
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 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. […]
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 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, […]
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. […]
“You have to grow vertically,” Easter Puja, Eastbourne (UK), 22 April 1990.
Today we are here to worship the resurrection of Christ; and also to thank Him for giving us an ideal life of a saint who has to work for the benevolence of the whole world.
We talk of Christ, we sing of Shri Ganesha, we say we believe in Him, specially Sahaj Yogis feel He is the eldest brother that they have. And a tremendous surrender I find, […]
Brahmapuri Puja. Brahmapuri (India), 30 December 1989.
Table of Contents[English Transcript][English translation from Marathi]
I’m sorry what has happened yesterday, but I think the war has begun between the evil and good, and after all the good prevails. In these modern times, evil used to prevail on good but now, in this Krita Yuga, the evil will be completely conquered by good, and not only that, but good will spread all over. The evil has the capacity to go to extremes and then to fall out of the evolutionary process completely. […]
Christmas Puja, Pune, India, 25 December 1989
Today we have assembled here to celebrate the birth of Christ. When you think of his birth one knows that he was born in a very humble place and all his life he lived in a very humble way.
Also as Sahaja Yogis you know that he was the incarnation of Shri Ganesha, which is in a sense his innocence and he was crucified due to the stupid understanding of blind people. […]
Shri Ganesha Puja, “Establishing Shri Ganesha Principle”. San Diego (USA), 7 September 1986.
Today in the land of Shri Krishna we are celebrating the birthday of Shri Ganesha.
Is something very unprecedented and of a very significant value that you should be celebrating the birthday of Shri Krishna’s Son in His own land. You know that Shri Ganesha incarnated on this Earth as Mahavishnu and He was the Son of Radha, who incarnated as Lord Jesus Christ. […]
Shri Bhumi Puja, Shudy Camps (UK), 3 August 1986.
Today we have assembled here to do the puja of the Mother Earth. We call it as the ‘Bhoomi Puja’, ‘Shri Dhara Puja’. She’s called as ‘Dhara’. As you know, ‘dha’ means ‘sustain’. Ra-dha – the one who sustains the energy is Radha. And Dhara, which is the one which is sustenance itself, She sustains us. On Her we live.
As you know this Mother Earth is revolving with a tremendous speed, […]
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. […]
Talk to yogis. Ashram in New Jersey (USA), 26 October 1985.
[All right. So. It’s rather warm. All right, as you please. Where do I keep this beautiful flower?
(Indistinct conversation) What flowers, eh? (Yogi: “Yes”) Beautiful! Now. If you can get My handkerchief from My purse, would be good. And My spectacles]
Today I was thinking of talking, telling you about the Sahaja Culture.
Now we are formed in dharma, Vishwa Dharma. But it must have a culture. […]
Geneva Public programme 11th June 1985
‘The Truth has Two Sides’
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, […]
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. […]
Navaratri Puja, London Hampstead (UK), 23 September 1984.
[Conversation with a Yogi about the mike.]
Sahaja Yogi: They’ve gone out to get some batteries for the mike.
Shri Mataji: All of them should come and sit in front, all the children, the girls, or at the back in the chair.
[Cut in the video]
Today is a great day for all of us – Can you hear me there? – that we are celebrating Navaratri today and all of us are meeting after such a long time of My tour. […]
Shri Krishna Puja, Los Angeles (United States), September 18th, 1983
First time when I came to United States, I came to Los Angeles first. Because, it’s a place of angels. Actually, I thought that it must be a very holy place to come down. First of all, in this great land of United States.
Now, as you know that United States or America, the whole of it, is the Vishuddhi chakra. Out of which, we have three sides to the Vishuddhi chakra. […]

Shri Saraswati Puja, Dhulia (India), Sankranti day, 14 January 1983.
With love all kinds of creative action takes place. You see how Raulbai has love for Me, and in this place you all also got new idea of creating a beautiful thing. And as love will increase, your creativity will develop. So the basis of all creativity of Saraswati is love. If there is no love there is no creativity.
It is even in the deeper sense, […]
“Heart, Vishuddhi, Agnya, Sahasrara – Becoming the Knowledge”, Public Programme, Derby (UK), 11 July 1982.
I’m happy that Dr. Warren could explain to you those chakras about which I told you yesterday, because in one short lecture you can’t cover all these points. And if you get your Realization and you progress well, then you can listen to My tapes which are in hundreds, and you can understand the knowledge is vast like ocean. As I yesterday told you that when you get enlightenment, […]
Guru Puja, “Establishing the Guru Principle” Nightingale Lane Ashram, London (UK), July 4th, 1982
Shri Mataji: Please, be seated. Who’s going to translate Me?
Shri Mataji: Why don’t you take one of these, Gregoire?
Warren: Mother, that is the public address microphone – they won’t be able to hear You. This is for the recording on the tape.
Shri Mataji: Then how will they hear him? Will it…?
Warren: Mother has to have this one… […]
Shri Lalita Puja. Hove, Brighton (UK), 15 May 1982.
I am really a proud Mother to see so many sahaja yogis. And one must understand that even if you get few people as newcomers, they may be few, but one has to realize that each one of you is now a realized soul. Each one of you have grown so much that you can create a nucleus yourself. And after growing in a collective way together, […]
Navaratri Puja, New York (USA), 29 September 1981.
“It was so pre-planned today by the Divine, I should say, that today is a very great day. In the first advent of the Holy Ghost came on this Earth this day. That was about fourteen thousands years back. And today is the day that is celebrated as the first advent. And there are nine advents She has had, before She came as the Mahalakshmi. So first, today I will be telling you about it –how She is placed within us, […]
Shri Gruha Lakshmi Puja, Sydney (Australia), 7 April 1981
Today is the anniversary day of the wedding, and I have allowed them to celebrate it because marriage is very important in Sahaja Yoga. It is one of the most important things for Sahaja Yoga, that one should get married.
Firstly, marriage always gives you a balance of understanding, if you have proper ideas about marriage. If you have funny ideas, and if you are just marrying for fun’s sake and you do not understand the value of marriage, […]
The Eternal Spirit, Caxton Hall, London (UK), 10 November 1980.
(A yogi introduces Shri Mataji as well as Sir CP who is attending the program for the first time, having just been unanimously re-elected as Secretary General of the IMO.)
Shri Mataji: Somebody has done some introduction, has someone done?
Peter? Is he there? Peter, you have to talk to these people about what I told you.
Today we are going to have a short session, […]
Birthday Puja. London (UK), 23 March 1980.
The birthday of Your Mother, and all such celebrations have a very deep significance, because on such occasions, special vibrations flow in the atmosphere. When all the celestial bodies, the Eternal Personalities, Gods and Goddesses sing the praise, and that’s how the whole atmosphere is filled with mirth and happiness. Human beings also, express their gratitude. Expression of gratitude and love is done in different, different ways in different countries, […]
Guru Puja, “The Declaration of Shri Mataji”. Dollis Hill ashram, London, England. 2 December 1979.
A month back, I told Rustom that, “You must have a puja arranged, this Sunday. It’s a full moon day”. And he asked Me, “What should you call it? Is it a Guru Puja? Or is it a Puja for Mahalaxmi, or Ganesha’s Puja?” So, I told him, “Call it a Guru Puja”. And he asked Me later on, much later, […]
7th Day of Navaratri Celebrations, “Kundalini and Kalki Shakti”
Mumbai (India), 28 September 1979
Today I am going to address you in English language, as desired by you. Even tomorrow perhaps we may have to use this foreign language.
Today’s subject is the relationship between Kundalini and Kalki. The word kalki actually is an abbreviation of the word nishkalanka. Nishkalanka means the same as My name is, which means nirmala — that it is a spotlessly clean thing. […]

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 01 Jan 1977.
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”. 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, […]
Translation from Hindi
[…] you have come to the programme and whilst sitting here, you are still thinking about your problems and worries. Oh, this happened to me, that happened to me. When should I discuss this with Mataji — what calamity has fallen upon me? Mataji, you are the Goddess, these are my troubles. Instead of trying to understand what is being said, you continue to overthink about your problems and are allured into illusions. […]
