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. […]

Dassehra. Tenth day of Navaratri, Sydney (Australia), 21 October 2007.
Mother looks at yoginis, smiles and says ‘Very happy’.
Please sit comfortably.
Today is the (indistinct) great day , isn’t it (ji) Dassera.
[Yogis organize a microphone for Shri Mataji]
Is it coming?
So today is Dassera, is a very big day in India. They say on this day Ravana was killed. He was the worst enemy of human beings, and he was killed. But whatever it is then, […]
Second day of Navaratri, October 13, 2007, Sydney, Australia
Come here also, come in, sit here, another one also (talking to people), come forward. There are people who could not sit. Can you go and see if every one is inside?
Sorry, I didn’t know you were all here. Now she said, so I said all right.
You can here me there ? All of you? Those who can’t hear raise your hand! [laughter]
All right, […]

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. […]
Shri Ganesha Puja, Cabella Ligure, 13 September 2003.
[Shri Mataji invites the children to come and sit on the stage]
Now we are facing little children. They are the ones who are incarnations. They are the ones who are going to lead humanity into some great advancement – the humanity has to be looked after. They are tomorrow’s humanity. And we are today’s. And what are we giving to them for them to follow? What is their aim in life? […]
Christmas Puja, Ganapatipule (India), 25 December 2002.
Merry Christmas to you all.
According to Sahaja Yoga, Christ is settled on your Agnya Chakra. His whole life is depicting the qualities of a person who is a realised soul. What He has suggested in His own life is that you should not have any greed or lust. The way these days people are greedy all over the world is really shocking. Right from the childhood, our children also learn to ask for this or ask for that; […]
Shri Kubera Puja. Canajoharie (USA), 18 August 2002.
Today we are going to worship Shri Krishna as a very great personality and you know why He came on this Earth to establish, this is the new form of, not Virat, not Virata, but a form by which this country became so prosperous. And by His advent only He created a beautiful mentality among the people, how to develop this culture with dharma and you had very great leaders, […]
Puja for the 79th Birthday, Delhi (India), 21 March 2002.
[Scanned from DCB Translation from Hindi to English]
I am seeing the magnitude of love. How it has spread all over! To how many people? No one knows. But I have understood its Philosophy.
Could there be any Philosophy of love? Love has no Philosophy.
Like a huge expanse l.ove spreads all over.
quarrel with them. You are Sahaja Yogis. There should be no other feeling in your heart but love. […]
Public Program in Royal Albert Hall. London (UK), 14 July 2001.
I bow to all the seekers of truth. Some of you have found the truth, some of you have not found it fully, and some of you have not found it at all. But if you look around in today’s situation, you’ll have to agree there’s a big turmoil going on. Countries after countries are taking to all kinds of wrong things. Lot of cold war is on, […]
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. […]
Shri Ganesha Puja, “Ekakarita”, Cabella Ligure, 5 September, 1998
[Shri Mataji is welcomed upon Her arrival by the sahaja yogis singing “Nirmala, Kiti Varnavi Tujhiga Sthuti”]
Today we are going to worship Shri Ganesh.
I think I have told you a lot about Him and His nature, but still so many of us have not yet realized what are His powers, and what He wants.
First and foremost thing is that to respect Shri Ganesha is to understand the importance of chastity. […]
Shri Krishna Puja. Cabella Ligure (Italy), 16 August 1998.
Today we are going to have Shri Krishna Puja. It is a very important thing about the power of Shri Krishna that gives you a witness state. This is very important also because in these days of Kali Yuga and complete confusion of value system, all kinds of turmoil makes a very complex conditions to exist. The state of witnessing is only possible through meditation. You reach the state of thoughtless awareness. […]
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, […]
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. Anybody can be crucified and killed, but this dead body of Christ was resurrected from death. Death itself died and He overcome.
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, He could walk on the water, […]
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. […]
Sahastrara Puja, Cabella Ligure (Italy), 7 May 1995.
Today it’s a great day for us, for all the Sahaja Yogis, that on this day I would say, we are late by one day, or two days, the Sahastrara was opened out. It was just a miracle, I should say, because I did not think that I am at a point where it could be done. So, I wanted to wait, but some things happened that made Me think that it has to be opened. […]
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. […]
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, […]
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 realization I didn’t tell you, “Don’t do this. Don’t do that.” I never told you that “This is not good. […]
Shri Fatima Puja. Istanbul (Turkey), 18 May 1993.
(It’s all right. I hope you can hear Me all the way, can you? Come forward a little bit, perhaps.)
Today is a very joyous that all of us are here in Turkey, to celebrate the Puja of Fatima’s. As you know about Her that She was the daughter of Mohammed Sahib and was married to Ali, and She had two children, Hassan and Hussein, who were ultimately killed in Karbala by the fanatics, […]
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, […]
Guru Puja. Cabella Ligure (Italy), 19 July 1992.
Yesterday, you had asked me for the status of a Guru. It’s a state, It is not a status because status is external, can be bestowed upon anyone, and anybody can say that, “This is your status.” For something external merit, or something, you can give a status to a person. It is a state. ‘State’ means the innate being, evolved to that level that you become the master. […]
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, […]
Easter Puja. Magliano Sabina, Rome (Italy), 19 April 1992.
This is a great day for all of us to rejoice and to enjoy this Resurrection of Christ. The Resurrection of Christ took place to open our Agnya center because it was a very subtle center as you know, very complicated with the ideas people had from their conditioning and from their ego, were so much clogging the Agnya Chakra that Kundalini could have been impossible to pass through. […]
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, […]
Public Program. 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. […]
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. […]
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. […]
“Realise Your Own Divinity”, Sahastrar Puja, Ischia (Italy) 5 May 1991
Today we have assembled here to celebrate the Sahastrar Day which was opened in 1970 on this date. I find this beautiful canopy is like our Sahastrar. And [it’s] so very apt to have this beautiful arrangement for Sahastrar Day.
We have to understand what happens when the Sahastrara opens.
When the Kundalini passes through the five centres it enters into the area which we call as limbic area. […]
Hamsa Puja. NewYork (USA), 28 April 1991.
Today we have assembled in the area of Vishuddhi. In the Gita, Shri Krishna has described the area as “Kshetra”, and the one who knows the area is called as “Kshetragna”.
“Gna”, yesterday as I told you, “gna” or “gya”, means: “The one to know on your central nervous system”. So the one who is the knower of that area is the Kshetragna.
Today we are going to know about the Hamsa Chakra. […]
Shri Rama Navami Puja, Calcutta, India, 25/03/1991
Translated from Hindi.
We have gathered here on the occassion of Ram Navami. Everybody has said, “Mother please tell us about Shri Ram.”
As you know that Shri Rama has taken a very important place in our chakras. He is sitting on our right heart. Shri Rama has taken a place of a father, so lack of father’s duty and love can cause a catch of this chakra. […]
Christmas Puja (English/Hindi). Ganipatipule (India), 25 December 1990.
Today we have such a great opportunity to celebrate the birth of Christ. He was born in a manger. All these things are already pre-planned. That He should be born in a manger in difficult situations, to show that whether you are born poor or rich, whether you are born in difficulties or in problems, if you have Divinity within you, it shines by itself. As the Christianity took a very wrong deviated line, […]
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 Ganesha puja. Lanersbach (Austria), 26 August 1990.
Today we are celebrating the birthday of Shri Ganesha. You all know the story of His birth and I need not repeat it. But, as He was created by the Mother only, by Adi Shakti, in the same way you are all created after Him.
So, you are on the path of Shri Ganesha already. Your eyes sparkle the same way His eyes sparkle. You all have the beautiful glow on your face as He had. […]
Guru puja. Avignon (France), 8 July 1990.
In Sahaja Yoga the Guru puja has a very different significance from any other guru puja. When you worship your Guru you are also worshiping the Guru within you. This is not in any other guru-disciple system because, in you, the Guru, the Master has been awakened. And so, when you are worshipping your Guru, then this Master within you is also worshipped, you respect it, you glorify it, […]
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. […]
Paramchaitanya Puja. Taufkirchen (Germany), 19 July 1989.
[(A noise is made by the loudspeaker.
Babies start crying.)
Shri Mataji: I
think better take the children out for a while. Just it would be better. Hello,
I think better take them out for a while. They didn’t like. Stops. (Babies suddenly stop crying. Laughter. Shri Mataji laughs)]
was asked to Me, “What puja we are going to have today?” and I kept it a
Sahastrara Puja, “Jump into the Ocean of Love”, Sorrento (Italy) 6 May 1989.
Last night was a night of complete darkness, that they call it as amavasya; and just now only the first phase of the moon has started.
Today we are here to celebrate the day when the Sahastrara was opened out. Also you have seen in the photograph. It was actually a photograph of my brain, which showed how the Sahastrara was opened out. […]
Shri Fatima Puja, St Georges, Switzerland, 14 August 1988.
Today we have gathered to do the puja of Fatima Bi, who was the symbol of Gruha Laxmi, and so we are going to have the puja of the Gruha Laxmi principle within us. As the housewife has to finish every work, everything in the household, and then she goes for a bath, in the same way this morning, I had to do lots of things and then I could come for your puja, […]
Guru Puja, The Gravity of Guru Principle, Ansalonga, Andorra, July 31st, 1988
Today we have all gathered here for worshipping your Guru. As you know that the principle of Guru resides in the Void. This is the principle which gives you balance, which gives you a gravity. The gravity that we have in the Mother Earth is expressed through your Guru Principle.
The first point of gravity is that you should have a personality, a character and a temperament [such] that people would see that you are a personality who doesn’t get dissolved into worldly things. […]
Shri Ekadasha Rudra puja, Moedling (Austria), 8 June 1988.
Today is a very important day in the history of spirituality. The Ekadasha Rudra Incarnation has been prophesised by every prophet, that the Ekadasha Avatara will be coming and it will destroy all the negativity, all the anti-God activities.
Ekadasha Principle actually is built-in [the] Void because when the saints wanted to cross the ocean of illusion through their meditation they were hindered, troubled, tortured, and slaughtered by negative forces. […]
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, […]
