Today we are here to do the Guru’s puja The Guru is praised more than the Deities and the Gods Who is this Guru? In this, which is the most important shakti? The Guru tattwa is the Shiva.

Navaratri Puja, Birthday of Shri Gauri, Ellenville, New York (USA), 12 October 2003.
Today we are going to celebrate the puja of Gauri. She came on this earth many-a-times, to kill the people who were doing wrong things, who were trying to kill good people. She has done Her level (best) to do that, and today we are celebrating Her birthday.
You all know so much about it, that I need not tell you, but what you have to know is that She came on this earth to save you from all kinds of troubles. […]
Shivaratri Puja, Pune (India), 16 March 2003.
Shri Mataji is silent for about six minutes before speaking.
Today we are going to worship Shri Shiva, Sadashiva. His quality is that He is forgiveness personified. The amount of forgiveness He has, has helped many of us to exist, otherwise this world would have perished, so many would have been finished because you know what is the condition of human beings. They don’t understand what is wrong, what is right. […]
Navaratri Puja, Wisdom Through Meditation, Bhakti & Shraddha, Los Angeles (USA), 27 October 2002.
Today, we are going to worship the Goddess. That’s the, first the left side programming is with Her, but later on, at Sahastrara, She’s the Adi Shakti. And, on the left side, whatever She does is already written, as you must have seen, because She’s the memory and She’s the wisdom and, that She protects you, is shown when She uses Her power over the Ganas. […]
Shivaratri Puja, Pune (India), 17 March 2002.
Tonight we have gathered here to do Shri Shiva Puja. Those people who have a clean heart can only do Shiva Puja. Those whose heart is not clean cannot do Shiva Puja. It’s a simple principle of Shri Shivaratri.
As you have seen yesterday, we have snakes, or, these are horrible snakes guiding behind the Shiva Linga. The significance is this – those who are clean in heart, who are full of love for others, […]
Navaratri Puja. Loutraki (Greece), 21 October 2001.
Today we have gathered here to do the Devi Puja. This Puja was performed many a times and the Devi was requested by the Devas to save them from the tyranny of devilish people. Today I feel the same way, that we are now in the grip of a funny (strange) situation; that there are people who are themselves devils, I think, – and also (people who are) mesmerised by them – who are trying to do something which they should never have done. […]
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. […]
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, […]
Shri Siva puja. Delhi (India), 14 February 1999.
Today we have assembled here to do the puja of Shri Maha Deva – Shri Shiv Shankara. Because of Adi Shankaracharya’s emphasis people have taken up the Puja of Shiva in a big way. In Southern India two sects have come up: one is Shaivites and the other is Vaishnavites. Shaivites are the worshippers of Lord Shiva and the Vaishnavites are those who worship Lord Vishnu. In our country we are very expert in dividing ourselves. […]
Shri Rama Navami Puja, Noida House (India), 5 April 1998.
As compared to Maharashtra, Navaratri of Chaitra month of Shalivahana Shaka (dinasty) from Pratipada to Navami is celebrated with more grandeur in North India. In Maharashtra the birth of Shri Krishna (Shri Vitthala, i. e. Shri Krishna as a King) is celebrated with religious fervour as ‘Gokulashtami’ Shri Vitthala was the eighth incarnation of Lord Vishnu. He incarnated (was born) at 12:00 midnight. Shri Rama, the seventh incarnation of Lord Vishnu, […]
Shivaratri puja (Hindi Translation & English part) Delhi (India), March 16th, 1997
First of all I will speak in Hindi language, and then in English. We have such a cosmopolitan people that I do not know which language to take to.

Today we are going to do the Puja of Shri Shiva. The form of Shiva within us, is verily the reflection of Sadashiva Himself. This form of Shiva resides in the Heart, […]
“Motivate your attention”, Mahashivaratri Puja. Bundilla Scout Camp, Sydney (Australia), 3 March 1996.
Today we are going to do puja to Shiva, Shri Shiva. As you know, Shri Shiva is the reflection of Sadashiva within us.
I’ve already told about the reflection. Sadashiva is the God Almighty, the one who sees the play of Adi Shakti. But He is the Father who is watching each one of His Creation or Her Creation.
His support to Adi Shakti is entirely, […]
Shivaratri Puja. Castle Mountain Camps, Wiseman’s Ferry, near Newcastle, NSW, Australia. 26 February 1995.
Today we have gathered here to do the Puja to Sadashiva. The One, which is reflected within us, is the Shiva, which is the pure Spirit. This pure Spirit within us is the reflection of God Almighty, Sadashiva. It’s like the sun that falls in the water and gives a clear reflection. Or else it falls on the stone, it doesn’t give any reflection at all. […]
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 Durga Mahakali Puja, Paris (France), 25 July 1992.
Today’s Puja we have arranged of Durga or the Kali. That is the destroying form of the Goddess of all the evil and negativity. This we had to do it in France, because I feel very strongly that day by day, in general, France is going down and down and down. While you people are coming up, the rest of the France is in the most pitiable condition. […]
Mahashivaratri Puja. Glenrock Lagoon, Newcastle (Australia), 29 February 1992.
It’s very nice to see all of you here, so many of you from Australia, to worship Shiva, Sadashiva.
I think this is a very important occasion. Is important, because Sadashiva, the God Almighty, who is One, is expressed on your heart as Spirit, the Shiva. We have to understand that so many people came on this earth at different times, in different countries, and they talked to different people about righteousness, […]
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. […]
Mahashivaratri Puja. Chianciano Terme (Italy), 16 February 1991.
Today we have assembled here to worship Sadashiva, which is reflected within us as Shiva, as the spirit. He is reflected in our heart, and as you have seen that the goal of our life was to achieve this state of spirit.
The other day I was reading some books how it was done, this Self-realization, to know the spirit, and how people were tortured. First of all they’re asked to somehow or other deny, […]
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, […]
Navaratri Puja, “Destroy the demons inside yourselves”. Margate (UK), 8 October 1989.
It was very spontaneously decided that we should have the Devi Puja in England. And this is the place where really Devi Puja should be, because it’s the place of Sadashiva and where Adi Shakti should be worshipped.
We have to today understand that why do we do Devi Puja? What is the reason for this Devi Puja? What do we get out of it? […]
Navami, ninth night of Navaratri, Pune (India), 19 October 1988.
Today is the last day of Navaratri. This should be the culminating pint for all of us, as you see, within us, as you know, that there are seven chakras for you ascent and two above it. That should be your destiny. But if you people go only on the agnya move on agnya, you cannot rise any higher. People have been lost on that chakra. […]
Shivaratri Puja, Bombay (India), 14 February 1988.
This part was spoken in Hindi
Today we are all come together to celebrate the Shiva Tattwa Puja. Nowadays, in Sahaja Yoga, what we have achieved is by the Grace of the Shiva Tattwa. Shiva Tattwa is the ultimate goal (establishment, completion) of pure desire. When the Kundalini gets awakened in us, pure desire takes us near and keeps us at the Shiva Tattwa. Beyond Shiva Tattwa is the safe refuge of the Atma. […]
Shri Rama Puja. Les Avants (Switzerland), 4 October 1987.
Today we are celebrating in Switzerland the coronation of Shri Rama on Dassera Day. Many things happened on Dassera Day. The most important was that Shri Rama was coronated as a king on this day. He also killed Ravana on this day. Many may say that how can it be He killed Ravana and He was coronated on the same date? In those days in India, we had supersonic aeroplanes and, […]
Mahashivaratri Puja (Marathi). Pune (India), 8 March 1986.
This punya nagari is called as Pune but in our scriptures, it is known as Punyapatnam. The Punyas of the entire world are flowing through this Punya nagari and you all are the carriers of those punyas. It is a great divine coincidence that you are having the puja of Shri Shiva who is the source of Punyas in this place.
Unless and until a person gets the Shiva Sthiti (state of Shiva), […]
Navaratri puja. Weggis (Switzerland), 19 October 1985.
Today is a great day of Navaratri, we are sitting on the cusp of the sixth and the seventh. Sixth and the seventh is the day when Mahasaraswati finished Her work and the incarnation of the Shakti itself started. So, at twelve o’clock today the Devi takes the Shakti upon Herself.
Of course, as you know, that Mahakali and Mahasaraswati, both are the powers of Shri Sadashiva. Adi Shakti first formed Herself into Mahakali, […]
Ashtami Puja, Eighth day of Navaratri, Meudon, Paris (France), 30 September 1984.
Today is the eighth day of Navaratri, but it is great day for Sahaja Yogis because it is the most important period. That is, the seventh centre we have crossed and we are on the eighth centre. We need not think of the Goddess what She did on the eighth day, we have to think today what we have to do within ourserlves.
After crossing the seventh day, […]

All right. You see, you must know these are modern times, and modern times have lots of complications.
(Translation from Marathi: “Has everyone arrived? I will first speak in English, […]
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.

[…]
Diwali Puja, “Becoming the ideals”. “Temple of all faiths”, Hampstead, London (UK), 6 November 1983.
With today’s vibrations, you can see, when you are prepared for a puja, how much you get. Today you can feel it.
So the Divine is very anxious to act, only thing you have to prepare yourself. And all these preparations are going to help you tremendously. As we are now Sahaja Yogis we have to know that we have become something different from what we were. […]
Shivaratri Puja. Sahaja Yoga Temple, Delhi (India), 11 February 1983.
I am happy that you all have adjusted yourselves in this small space. When there is love and understanding, little space can occupy many hearts. But when there is no large heart then whatever one may get this is never sufficient.
Today, we are going to worship Shiva Tattwa within us, principle of Shiva. For all Sahaja Yogis it’s very important, because Shiva is the ultimate we have to achieve. […]
Shri Durga Puja. Vienna (Austria), 26 September 1982.
All of you should take bandhan. It’s better before puja.
Today is the first day we are having this puja in this country of Austria. This country is an historical country with different upheavals it has gone through to learn so many lessons in life. But human beings are such that they do not relate the calamities with their mistakes. That’s how they go on repeating the same mistakes again and again. […]

I’mI’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, […]
Maha Shivaratri Puja, New Delhi, India, February, 20th, 1982
Today is the day when we celebrate Mahashivaratri. Is a great day, or we should say great night. This puja should have been in the night. Is a great night when Shiva was established on this earth. Because that way Shiva is eternal. So one would say that why Shiva, like a birthday of Shiva you can say or something, how can it be, because He is eternal, […]

[…]
Public Program. Delhi (India), 9 February 1981.
I talked to you about the Void in our body, which is called as Bhavasagara, Bhavasagara in our Sahaja Yoga language. Today we have to understand the other chakras, which are above the Bhavasagara.

Also your extreme behavior towards religion, your fanaticism, creates problems which may go up to something like cancer. […]
