Easter Puja, “You must forgive”, Hotel Pride, Nagpur (India), March 23th, 2008
I never expected all of you to be here present for the puja. I don’t know how you have managed to come (laughter and applause). Otherwise, it’s a very important day today for all of us because you know how Christ died. He was crucified. He was put on a cross and then He died.
Wonderful the way he said about you people. He asked for forgiveness from God. […]
Easter Puja, “You must forgive”, Hotel Pride, Nagpur (India), March 23th, 2008
Easter puja. Pratishthan, Pune (India), 8 April 2007.
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. […]
Easter Puja. Istanbul (Turkey), 21 April 2002.
Today we have come here to worship Jesus Christ and His Mother.
It’s such a coincidence that the Mother of Christ came and stayed in Turkey. Isn’t it surprising that She should come here after the crucifixion of Christ and stayed here. I wonder if He also came with Her later on? But they say then He went to Kashmir and She was also there. Quite possible, on their way, […]
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), 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. […]
Easter puja. Istanbul (Turkey), 25 April 1999.
Today, we are all here assembled in Turkey, in Istanbul, to celebrate the resurrection of Christ and, with that also, your celebration of your resurrection.
Christ’s resurrection was a great message for us. He won over the death and came out of that dead body with another body which was living body. The body was the same, but one was a dead body and another one was a body which was living. […]
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, […]
Easter Puja (Translated from Hindi). Calcutta (India), 14 April 1996.
Today we are doing Easter Puja. Today is a very important day for Sahaja Yogis because Isa-Messiah (Jesus) has shown us that redemption of human beings is possible, and for that redemption we should always put in an effort. There is also a meaning why He was crucified. He was crucified on the cross and this cross is a symbol of the Swastika on the Agya chakra. […]
Puja of the 73rd Birthday, “Mind is a myth”. Delhi (India), 21 March 1996.
Today, I’m going to talk about the mind. People don’t know what is this mind is. It is very easy to understand for Sahaja Yogis that we are the ones who react, react to everything that is outside. The reason is we have two horrible tendencies, one which is an ego, and another tendency is that we are being trained that way, […]
Easter Puja. Sydney (Australia), 3 April 1994.
I’m happy to know so many of you have come here – and I feel this is a very important Puja, not only for Australia but for the whole world, because it has the greatest message which we have actualised now in Sahaja Yoga.
We have to understand the message of Christ. There are many people in this world who try to show off that they are very great rationalists and that they have a right to pass any remark they like about Christ. […]
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. […]
Talk to Sahaja Yogis After Diwali
I’m sorry it was so such a late time I had to come here. I had to make the food and just after dinner I came and I think the ashram is also very far away.
I have to just tell you that we have had a very, very successful tour of South America. And as you must have seen the people of Romania, the people there were extremely surrendered, […]
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. […]
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. […]
Easter Puja. Sydney (Australia), 31 March 1991.
Today we are here to worship Christ as He was resurrected from dead. There are lots of theories about His death, but actually He resurrected Himself and then He went down to India and settled there with His Mother. After period of His resurrection is not described in any books, as such, but in one of the Puranas written about Shalivana, one of the kings of the dynasty I belong to, […]
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 Sahaja Yogis feel that He is the eldest brother that they have and a tremendous surrender I find among Western Sahaja Yogis specially for Christ because they were born in Christian religion perhaps maybe or maybe that they found Christ’s life a very special one. […]
Shri Buddha Puja. Barcelona (Spain), 20 May 1989.
So today we have gathered here to worship Buddha.
Lord Buddha, as you know, was Gautama, the one who was born in a royal family, and then, He became an ascetic, because He was very much hurt to see three types of problems from which human beings suffer. And He came to conclusion [that] all these three types of problems are because we have desires. So He said that, […]
Shri Buddha Puja. San Diego (USA), 23 July 1988.
Today we have decided to celebrate the Buddha Jayanti, it’s the day of Buddha’s birth. In the whole map of time, Buddha came to this earth at a time when it was so important for Him to come. That time, especially in India, we had two types of people: one, who were very ritualistic, trying to be extremely strict and disciplined; and the another were the people who were too much conditioned and were full of so-called devotion to God. […]
Easter Puja. Shudy Camps (England), April 3 1988.
I’m sorry for being late but I have been working, I tell you, since morning.
Now, today we are here to celebrate the resurrection of Christ. Resurrection of Christ has the greatest significance for all the Sahaj Yogis. And we have to understand that He resurrected Himself so that we could resurrect ourselves.
The message of His life is His resurrection and not His cross. He bore the cross for us and we don’t have to bear anymore. […]
Christmas Puja. Pune (India), 25 December 1987.
English part of Talk:
Today is the great day when a great son of the Goddess was born, at least it is celebrated today. And you all are assembled here to celebrate the birthday of Christ. You already know how He came on this earth, and what was His great work. But we must see to the subtle side of Christ. What was His power? Christ’s power was of course aumkara. […]
Complete your Self-realisation, Puja in Aurangabad (India), 19 December 1987.
I am sorry I was dealing with some newspaper people, journalists, and they came very late. Whatever it is, I found them to be very sensible and very understanding.
All of us have come to Aurangabad now, and it seems this place is full of vibrations. Maybe [because] here, Shalivahana has ruled in this area. But also [because] there have been many saints who were born on this side of Maharashtra. […]
Talk to Yogis, ashram in Le Raincy, Paris (France), 17 August 1987.
So first of all, on behalf of my husband I want to thank you because he told Me he wants to thank all the French for giving such a nice time to him. But let be [inaudible] because you’ll feel embarrassed later on.
All right. Come in.
And I must say I was really amazed how in such a short time you could arrange such a nice program and such nice music, […]
Easter Puja, Ashram of Pichini, Rome (Italy), April 19th, 1987
Happy Easter to all of you!
It’s a great day to come to Rome to celebrate the Resurrection of Christ. Now we have to do the Resurrection of Christianity, which is just moving in the opposite direction of Christ’s Resurrection.
As you know that Christ was just Chaitanya, but He came in the body of Chaitanya. The whole body was made of Chaitanya, and He resurrected Himself to show to the world that you can resurrect yourself also, […]
Puja in Nassik at Dr. Sanghvi House, Nassik (India), 23 December 1986.
So now we have here one of the most ancient places called Nasik. I think you must have heard about what happened when Shri Rama and Sita were staying here, why this place was called as Nasik that I will tell you in short. This is the place where Shri Rama and Sita and Lakshmana were staying and the sister of Ravana, because Ravana’s some of the empires, […]
Devi Puja, French seminar. Dourdan (France), 18 May 1986.
Today we have gathered here in this beautiful place to work out something very deep. There are certain things of which we are not aware, which are in the history, and some things in the atmosphere, they affect us very much because we are the product of five elements out of which the Mother Earth is the left side within us. The Mother Earth changes its atmosphere, […]
“Ego and its consequences,” Talk to yogis. New Jersey (USA), 27 October 1985.
Nice, relaxed eh? Relaxed, with blessings. Everyone cleared out, I think.
And no more one more thing, I must say it last, I’ve said it before but I have not said it here, no one is going to say that “bhoot did it” because such a person will be sent away to the bhoot [unclear: clan? Or clap] not to Sahaja Yoga, don’t put your responsibility on the bhoots, […]
Easter Puja. Hounslow (UK), 8 April 1985.
Happy Easter to you all.
So we celebrate Easter to show Christ resurrected Himself. The Spirit that is Christ has to resurrect out of the material manifestation of the Divine Itself. The matter is manifested because we ourselves have created it. Not that we are born out of matter, our body, but we are attached to it, we want it, we want to have it. Whatever you want, that sustains itself, […]
Easter puja. Temple of all Faiths, London (UK), 22 April 1984.
Today we are celebrating the resurrection of Christ [and] with it we also have to celebrate the resurrection of human beings, of Sahaja Yogis who have been resurrected as realised souls. With that we have to understand that we enter into a new awareness. There was no need for Christ to enter into any new awareness, He had to come down and again to show to this world that you are the eternal life, […]
Talk to Ladies. Pimpri, Pune (India), 10 February 1984.
[Shri Mataji speaks in Marathi]
For your good luck, you should say let us say for your good luck, Soubhagya for your good luck. Is given to the ladies, always given to the ladies. Because in India the women are regarded as the Shakti and women who lead a married life and who have been mothers, who have been daughters and also wives and things like that are respected very much as only it is believed that only the respectable women when they exist in any country the Gods also reside there. […]
Shri Buddha Puja, Brighton (UK), 26th of May, 1983.
This time when – there was no rain, so we went to the sea in Melbourne. I told that would be great if we go to Melbourne, and we went to the sea and I made a Ganesha and they made a Shiva there and they worshipped Me.
Sahaja Yogi: Do we have some towel for Mother? For Mother’s hands.
So, and they made a Kundalini also there. […]
Q&A, “Our Goal is to be the Spirit, nothing but the Spirit”. Delhi (India), 8 February 1983.
Speaker: We would like you to discuss is the difference in aims and aspirations between India and the developed countries, how they have progressed, the way history has taken them, and also what they have to offer each other.
Shri Mataji: Aims and objects?
Speaker: Yes, the aims, and objects – how they have taken their own courses.
Shri Mataji: Apparently, […]
Public Program, Delhi (India), 29 Jauary 1983.
I bow to all the seekers of truth. At the very outset, I would like to thank the great artist Savita Devi who has given us the pleasure of listening to her beautiful exposition of God’s blessings and the desire of a seeker like Surdas. I am really thankful to her for setting a mood this program and bringing it to that melodious concord.
What Dr. Warren has told you is very true, […]
Public Program, “The Myth of Ego”. Hampstead, London (UK), 20 November 1980.
I am told that already somebody has spoken about Me, perhaps Me or Sahaja Yoga as well and I’m sure you must have understood why we are here. Sahaja Yoga is an eternal process which is not. Today, it has started. It has been on, and on and on.
Like, I started from My house, then I had to avoid some traffic, terrible traffic on Park Lane. […]
Easter Puja, The Meaning of Easter, Dollis Hill Ashram, London (UK). April 6th, 1980
…Like today I was talking to a Muslim boy and he said that “Mohammad Sahib was not an incarnation.” “So what was He?” “He was a human being, but God has given Him special powers.” I said, “Very good way!” Because if you say that He was a human being [then] for human beings, it is very good to say that “He was just a human being, […]
The Problem of Ego, Caxton Hall, London (UK) – 22 October 1979.
From next time I’ll start the series because those who are not here, I mean, sort of lots of people will be coming when you will be advertising. Cooly (Tony Paniotou) did you advertise for today or for next time? He’s also not here? Not, yes, so we’ll start it from next time, you see, the series like that. Would be better for people to follow. […]
