Easter puja. Istanbul (Turkey), 22 April 2001.
Today we have gathered here to do the puja of Easter.
In the history of spirituality, it is one of the greatest days when we find Christ rose from the dead. It is very significant and symbolic that in Sahaja Yoga, also what we have done, is to rise from the dead – into life. It is to be understood that resurrection is the message for all of us, […]
Easter puja. Istanbul (Turkey), 22 April 2001.
Birthday Puja, Delhi (India), 21 March 2001.
Today you all have decided to celebrate my 78th Birthday. You have put beautiful balloons, as you put for a child on his birthday, with such loving hands. Yesterday, as I told you, you have to find out about yourself. Just try to find out also, as you love me, how much you can love others. It will be much easier to find out through introspection how much you love others and how much you care for others. […]
Birthday Felicitations. Delhi (India), 20 March 2001.
Sir C.P.’s Talk:
Shri Mataji’s Talk:
I bow to all those who have found the truth and those who are still trying to find. The greatest problem of human beings is, surprising, that they don’t know themselves. They don’t know what powers they have. They don’t know what properties they have. They don’t know to what height they can rise. This is the main problem of ignorance about yourself. […]
Mahashivaratri Puja, Delhi (India), 25 February 2001.
Today we are here to celebrate Mahashivaratri. It’s a very great privilege for all of us to understand about Shri Mahadeva. Unless and until you have got your Self Realisation you cannot understand what is the great personality, the character and the powers of Shri Mahadeva. It is not easy to conceive – also to reach the depths – of his greatness, unless and until we are humble. We have to be very humble to reach (arrive) at the Lotus Feet of Shri Mahadeva. […]
New Year Puja, Kalwe, India. 31 December 2000.
Now, we are starting a New Year, and I wish you all a very happy and prosperous New Year.
In this wish of Mine I also wish you a very deep growth in Sahaja Yoga. (Applause)

Diwali Puja. Lake Piru, near Los Angeles, California (USA) – 29 October 2000.
It’s a great day today for the whole world that we are celebrating this Diwali Puja in America. It’s very important. Here, where people have been able to earn money, to have lots of money sometimes, and are also people who are ruined completely because of money.
When we talk of Diwali we should understand that – why on a Diwali day we have all these lights? […]
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, […]
Shri Ganesha Puja, “Your innocence will save this world”, Cabella Ligure (Italy), 16th September 2000
Today, we have gathered here to do Ganesha Puja.
I know very well that Ganesha is the symbol of purity, of sanctity, and worshipping the innocence. When you are worshipping Shri Ganesh, you have to know that He is the embodiment of innocence.
I wonder if we understand the meaning of ‘innocence’ or not. Innocence is a quality, which is innate, […]
Shri Krishna puja. Cabella Ligure (Italy), 20 August 2000.
Today we are here to worship Shri Krishna within us.
As you know you all have been seeking before coming to Sahaj Yoga. You went to different places, read lots of books and also some of you were lost. And, in that seeking, perhaps you did not know what you were seeking. What you were seeking was to know yourself. In all religions it is said ‘know thyself’: is a common thing all of them have said. […]
Guru Puja, “Shraddha”. Cabella Ligure (Italy), 23 July 2000.
Today we are here to know about guru principle. What does a guru do. Whatever you have, all the precious things within you, he discovers them for your knowledge. Actually it is all there – everything. All the knowledge, all the spirituality, all the joy, is there. (little laughter as a dog walks on stage) Right time! (more laughter). It’s all contained within you. Only thing the Guru does (is) makes you knowledgeable about your knowledge, […]
Adi Shakti Puja. Nirmal Nagari, Canajoharie, NY (USA), 2 July 2000.
Today we have come here to do the Adi Shakti Puja.
I have already told you about the Adi Shakti, how She had to work out so many things in this world —first to create and then to create human beings through evolutionary process. After that, to comfort. Then to counsel.
So many people here came on this Earth just to do the counselling. They told what was wrong, […]
Sahasrara puja, “Attain that Sahaja state”, Cabella Ligure (Italy), 07 May 2000.
Thirty years back, when Sahasrara 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. […]
Easter puja. Istanbul (Turkey), 23 April 2000.
Today we are celebrating the great event of the resurrection of Christ. On the same pattern is your resurrection, that you have risen to the new life of Divine love. You were all in the knowledge that there is something higher that has to happen, that you have to be born again. But, nobody knew how it works? The subtle side of your being was never told to you. […]
Birthday Felicitations (English part), Delhi (India), 22 March 2000.
Our honored guest, our respected Home Affairs Ministry is here, Mr. Advani, who has been always a very great dezabhakt [patriot]. I admired him because he loved his country; he is very patriotic. And this is – [Big applause]
And as you know, My father and mother both were very patriotic. They sacrificed everything for the country, and I also was always condemned by everyone as being a very patriotic person. […]
Birthday Puja. Delhi (India), 21 March 2000.
Talk in English:
I’m so very filled with joy and My heart is so full of gratitude for all the Sahaja Yogis who have been able to create this beautiful place. I cannot imagine how much they must have been worked hard in such a place, to create such a beautiful area, such a blissful place. How in Sahaja Yoga, people worked together with tremendous love and respect with each other, […]
Shivaratri Puja, Pune, India, 5 March 2000.
First, I’ll speak in English language, because we have so many people from foreign countries, and especially from Madras (Chennai) and also from Kerala, Hyderabad and Bangalore. All these people have come here, and I don’t know what other people are here, who have come from South and who do not yet understand Hindi language.This Shivaratri has a special meaning, I think, because there is so much – if you read any newspaper in the morning, […]
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. […]
Sahasrara Puja, “Our Awareness has to become Paramchaitanya” Cabella Ligure, (Italy), 9 May 1999.
Today we have gathered here to do the Sahasrara puja.
Sahasrar, the word ‘sahastr’, in Sanskrit language, means ‘one thousand’. And there are one thousand petals in our brain which get enlightened. Of course, the doctors are quarrelling on that point but forget about them.
Now these petals are kept ready for our enlightenment, and these are really the nerves, one thousand nerves, […]
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. […]
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, […]
Sahasrara Puja. Cabella Ligure (Italy), 10 May 1998.
Today, it’s a great day because Sahasrara 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 Sahasrara and the motherhood go together.
Sahasrara 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, […]
Easter Puja. Istanbul (Turkey),
19 April 1998.
Today, we are celebrating the Resurrection of Christ. That
is the greatest message of Christ life, not the crucifixion.
can be crucified and killed, but this dead body of Christ was resurrected from
death. Death itself died and He overcame
It’s a miracle for ordinary human beings, definitely, but not for Christ,
because He was a Divine person, He was Shri Ganesha, He was Omkara Itself. So, […]
Birthday Puja, Delhi (India), 21 March 1998.
I was overjoyed to see the way you had organized this beautiful welcome. I must say that it’s your love which finds all kind of expressions of enjoying Sahaja Yoga. I really can’t understand how these unique ideas come to your heads, and you represent the different countries from where you have come. I wish you carry these flags back to your own countries, and tell them the message that the time has come for our resurrection, […]
Navaratri Puja, “Your Beautiful Qualities will prove the Truth of Sahaja Yoga”. Cabella (Italy), 5 October 1997.
[Upon arrival Shri Mataji is welcomed by yogis singing “Durgati Harani Durga Ambe”]
Today is the sixth day of Navaratri.
There have been many incarnations of the Goddess for different, different purposes. But when the great saints introspected themselves, who were worshipping the Mother, they found out that what She has done for us.
The other day I told you the dharma is the innate valency of human beings. […]
Guru Puja. Cabella Ligure (Italy), 20 July 1997.
Today’s puja is very important for us. You all have got your self realisation, you have all the knowledge that is necessary to give realisation to others. You have to know what you have already, that’s very important, because if you do not try your hand and if you do not try to give realisation to others, firstly you will have no faith in yourself – you’ll have no self esteem also. […]
Talk on Marriage Vows at start of weddings, Ganapatipule, India, 29 December 1996
So one should marry with a very open heart because you are marrying in Sahaja Yoga. Is no other binding force for you but your love and affection and care for each other.

Christmas Puja. Ganapatipule (India), 25 December 1996.
Today, we are celebrating the birth of Jesus Christ. The birth of Jesus Christ is very symbolic, because he was born in such a manner that even the poorest of poor won’t be born in the stable. And he was put in the bed which was made of dried grass.
He came on this earth to show people that for a person who is an incarnation or who is a highly evolved soul, […]
Shri Mahalakshmi Puja (Transcript of English talk). Mumbai (India), 21 December 1996.
[Shri Mataji speaks in Marathi for about 45 minutes]
I am sorry, I had to speak in Marathi language because I had to tell them something which I don’t want you to know (Laughter).

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. […]

Christmas puja. Ganapatipule (India), 27 December 1994.
Merry Christmas and all the blessings for the next year.
Today we are not going to have a very long puja, but there are certain things which we have to understand from the life of Christ. Christ was born in a very poor conditions, just to show that spirituality can live in any circumstances and under any problems. And He had to face so much opposition from His own clan. […]

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,” Sahasrara Puja. Cabella Ligure (Italy), May 8 1994.
Today is a unique combination of Mothers’ Day in many countries and Sahasrar 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, […]
Talk to yogis. Peninsular Hotel in Hong Kong (China), 24 April 1994.
So lever should be treated. And next time when you come to India we are going to get you all the medicines of liver. If they are very fat then they are left sided. Try to bring them to the center with the three candle treatment. But first of all test it what is the situation. Sometime they developed the puffy fat that is alright. […]
Mahashivaratri Puja. Delhi (India), 14 March 1994.
It’s a great pleasure that from all over the world people have gathered to worship Shiva. Actually we should say it is Sadashiva that we are going to worship today. As you know the difference between Sadashiva and Shri Shiva. Sadashiva is the God Almighty and He is a witness of the play of the Primordial Mother.
The combination between Sadashiva and the Primordial Mother Adi Shakti is just like a moon and the moonlight or the sun and the sunlight. […]
Shri Raja Rajeshwari Puja (Hindi). Hyderabad (India), 20 January 1994.
Today we are going to perform the Puja of Shri Raja Rajeshwari. Especially in the south of India, the Devi is recognized in many forms. The reason is that here there were many Devi bhaktas (devotees of the Goddess), like Adi Shankaracharya, and they established the religion of Shakta Dharma. Shakta Dharma means the religion of Shakti (God’s power). Two kinds of religions started simultaneously. Ramanujacharya established the Vaishnav religion, […]
Shri Ganesha Puja. Chhindwara (India), 18 December 1993.

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 Virata Viratangana Puja. Los Angeles (USA), 10 October 1993

Shri Pallas Athena Puja. Athens (Greece), 26 April 1993.
It’s a very great day for Me to see so many Sahaja Yogis here who are from this country, Greece. When first I came to Greece, I told my husband that this country is full of vibrations and there have been many evolved souls in this country, but perhaps the people have lost their heritage, but the vibrations are in the atmosphere and one day Sahaja Yoga should prosper here very much. […]
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.

Diwali Puja. Temisoara (Romania), 25 October 1992.
So today we are celebrating the Diwali Puja.
I think you all can try to learn English which is a very simple language and would be better. I just want to say that you all can learn English language, it’s not difficult from my tapes. Of course the language of love is universal for it has no script, that’s the problem (Shri Mataji laughs) and no words, and no words. […]
Hamsa Chakra Puja, Vancouver (Canada), 13 September 1992.

Shri Vishnumaya Puja, Ashram Everbeek (Belgium), 4 July 1992.
Talk starts at 17:44 on video
It’s a unique opportunity today to do Vishnumaya Puja because She entered into this house [Shri Mataji laughing], we have to worship Her.
First we should know who is Vishnumaya. It’s very important to know because in the Devi Mahatmyam She is only described as the Incarnation of the Goddess: “Vishnumaya iti shabdita” [chant 5], She is called as Vishnumaya.
But let’s see who is She? […]
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, […]
Sahasrara Puja, “The Will of God”. Cabella Ligure (Italy), 10 May 1992.
Today we are celebrating Sahasrara day. Perhaps we have not realised what a day it must have been. Without opening the Sahasrara, God Itself was a myth, religion itself was a myth, and all talk about Divinity was a myth. People believed in it but it was just a belief. And the science, as it was put forward, was about to obliterate all the value system, […]
