Guru Puja: How To Become A Guru Campus, Cabella Ligure (Italy)

Guru Puja, “How to Become a Guru”, Cabella Ligure, 20 July 2008

Today is a very great day for all the sahaja yogis. Because Sahasrara opened in you, you could feel the existence of God. By saying there is God that was not sufficient and to say that there is no God also was wrong, very wrong and people have suffered who have said like them. Only after getting realisation you know that there is God and there are vibrations. […]

Sahasrara Puja: Watch Yourself Campus, Cabella Ligure (Italy)

Sahasrara Puja. Cabella Ligure (Italy), 5 May 2002.

Today is a very great day I must say,
to celebrate Sahasrara, the puja of Sahasrara. It’s a very unique thing that
has happened that your Sahasraras 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 Sahasrara
opened out. So whatever they said, […]

Shri Ganesha Puja: You Have To Protect The Innocent Campus, Cabella Ligure (Italy)

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. […]

Shri Krishna Puja: Spontaneity and Creativity Campus, Cabella Ligure (Italy)

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: A Guru Should Be Humble And Wise Campus, Cabella Ligure (Italy)

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. […]

Diwali Puja: Be Honest To Yourself Montecatini Terme (Italy)

Diwali Puja. Montecatini Terme (Italy), 29 October 1989.

Yesterday was such a nice time we had together, and we really enjoyed Diwali, I think. I’ve never seen such a joyous ocean, absolutely going in a tempest. We have achieved the purpose of Diwali Puja, I think, only yesterday: it’s to feel the joy of God’s love.But “diwali” word is from “deepa wali” means the “rows of lights”. It was celebrated firstly because thousands of years back, […]

Shri Bhairavnath Puja: Bhairava and Left Side Garlate (Italy)

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, […]

Health Advice to Western Yogis Sangli (India)

Health Advice to Western Yogis & the problems with Australia, Sangli (India), 21 December 1988.

I have heard that you have been all very sick. I think I got sick because of that, myself. Now I hope you are all better. Still there are sick people? How many?

Guido Lanza: About seventy.

Shri Mataji: Seventy are sick in bed? Where are they?

Now there’s something I must tell you, that the other day these girls were making me wear ornaments and I felt a very funny smell from them. […]

Makar Sankranti Puja Mumbai (India)

Makar Sankranti – Shri Surya Puja. India Tour, Bombay (India), 10 January 1988.

It is a very unique opportunity, I think, for Me to meet you again in Bombay when you are all leaving this country, and this kind of a special type of a puja that we are having today. This is the puja done to the sun, and is called as Makar Sankrant. “Makar” is the tropic of Capricorn, Capricorn is Makar. So now the sun is moving from the tropic of Capricorn towards the tropic of Cancer, […]

Talk, Eve of Shri Vishnumaya Puja YWCA Camp, Pawling (United States)

Day before Shri Vishnumaya Puja. New York (USA), 8 August 1987.

It’s very gratifying to see so many of you Americans have gathered today, and tomorrow you want to have the Vishnumaya Puja. I remember the days when I used to talk to chairs only, but all these years after working so very hard, visiting this country so many times, still we have very, very few Sahaja Yogis compared to any other nation.

In this country of Shri Krishna, […]

Shri Ganesha Puja: Establishing Shri Ganesha Principle YMCA - Camp Marston, San Diego (United States)

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. […]

The Innocence of a Child & purpose of Ganapatipule, Evening Program Ganapatipule (India)

The innocence of a child, Ganpatipule (India), 31 December 1985.

I had a special purpose in coming to Ganpatipule, apart from that it was a very beautiful place and very relaxing for all of you. The reason is – I found this place had vibrations which will clear you out very easily, first of all. But you have to desire it, really, ardently. You should have that desire otherwise the Kundalini may not rise. That is a very important point; […]

A New Era – Sacrifice, Freedom, Ascent Bordi (India)

A New Era – Sacrifice, Freedom, Ascent. Bordi (India), 6 February 1985.

I am immensely joyous to see you all here. I do not know what to say from my side. The words get lost, they have no meaning.

So many of you are aspiring to ascend to that state where you would have complete joy, bliss and peace. This is what I could give you. And a mother is only happy when she can give whatever she has to her children. […]

Pre-Christmas Talk and Farewell Puja Montague Hall, Hounslow (England)

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. […]

Raksha Bandhan and Maryadas Montague Hall, Hounslow (England)

Raksha Bandhan and maryadas. Hounslow, London (UK), 11 August 1984.
After the great tour of UK I feel very confident that Sahaja Yoga is taking its roots, and you can see some of the plants coming up. It’s surprising, when I declared that it may be the last tour I’ll be doing of UK that things have started working out. Everywhere we went it was very good and successful, specially certain places it was very miraculous. […]

Mother Earth and Mahalakshmi Puja, Surbiton Ashram (England), 21 August 1983.

Some of you who cannot sit on the ground can bring some chairs from inside. You can get a chair for yourself. If you people cannot sit on the ground, go and get some chairs for yourselves. Sit down. (Shri Mataji speaks in Hindi)

Confusion: the Subtle Slavery Doctor Johnson House, Birmingham (England)

Public Program, “Confusion: the Subtle Slavery”. Birmingham (UK), 9 July 1982.

One has to realize that modern times are the times of confusion. You don’t know what you want. You don’t know what you want to ask. You don’t know whatever you are doing is right or wrong. Confusion is necessary. Without confusion, we are not desperate. Without desperation we do not seek. But confusion is only visible when a person reaches a certain area of awareness, […]

The Creation New Delhi (India)

“The Creation”, New Delhi (India), 20 February 1977

Tonight we had decided to talk about Creation but our management has not been able to provide me with a chalk and with a blackboard so, I don’t know, I’ll try to explain it without drawing. It’s a very difficult subject. And I’ll try to make it intelligible. But I would request you to pay full attention for such a difficult subject like Creation.

The greatest blessing today is that many of you can feel the vibrations. […]

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, […]
