Talk held in occasion of Shri Ganesha’s Jayanti. Pratishthan (India), 10 February 2008.
Today is a very important day for all of us Sahaja Yogis, because today Shri Ganesha was born. Shri Ganesha is whom we worship and because of whom we got our realization. However much you may remember Him, until you know His special qualities, you cannot attain Him. His special quality is that He is the embodiment of purity (shuddha swaroop) and complete Master of the Universe. […]

[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? […]
Shri Ganesha Puja, Frankfurt (Germany), 27 September 2002.
It’s so nice to come back after such a long time. And whenever I came, you always had gathered in a very big hall. We met, and that’s how the Sahaja Yoga started growing.

Shri Ganesha puja. Cabella Ligure (Italy), 14 September 2002.
Today we have gathered here to worship Shri Ganesha. Shri Ganesha is the deity of innocence. When we are born as children, it is Shri Ganesha who is acting and we are very innocent, and it is such a powerful thing that, with this innocence, children survive under many circumstances. And we love them, because they are innocent. We enjoy them, because they are innocent.
Once we start growing, […]
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 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 Ganesha Puja. “We must respect the Mother Earth”, Cabella Ligure (Italy), 25 September 1999.
Today we have gathered here to worship Shri Ganesha.
You all know what a powerful Deity He is. His power comes from his innocence. When we see small children we’re automatically compelled towards them and also we want to love them, kiss them and be with us. And very innocent they are, extremely innocent. And when we worship Shri Ganesh we have to know if we have been really innocent or not. […]

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 Ganesha Puja. Cabella Ligure (Italy), 7 September 1997.
Today we are going to worship Shri Ganesha.
It is said about him, that He is the first deity that was created on this earth by Adi Shakti. And about his creation, you know the story. And also you know how an elephant´s head was attached to him. Today, I am going to tell something more subtler about him, Kundalini and the Mother Earth. He was made out of the Mother Earth, […]
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).
Today is a great day, I should say in a way, because I am going to tell you one thing great. That is Shri Gyaneshwara – in Marathi they call it ‘Dnyaneshwara’ […]
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. […]
Shri Ganesha Puja. Cabella Ligure (Italy), 10 September 1995.
With all the Ganapatis sitting around me and you all the ganas sitting in front of me, I don’t know what to say. It’s remarkable, very remarkable, because most of you come from a culture which has never shown any respect of Shri Ganesh. They never realised how important it was that, without Shri Ganesha’s qualities, we cannot achieve anything in our life.
The idea of everyday, […]
Shri Ganesha Puja, Moscow (Russia), 11 September 1994.
Today we are going to worship Shri Ganesha.
Shri Ganesha resides in Mooladhara, on the chakra, Mooladhara chakra. And not on mooladhar.
In the mooladhar is placed the Kundalini. She is the mother of Shri Ganesh, we call her Gauri. Yesterday you saw the picture, the drama, how Shri Ganesha got his head of an elephant. All these things have happened in another world. There are many worlds of which we know of this world, […]
Shri Ganesha Puja. Chhindwara (India), 18 December 1993.
I’m sorry I was delayed. We’re supposed to see the collector and the thaisindar [tax officer?] as they call him. They have done so much for us, so much they have organized, all the way in the – officially they have done so well that I had to wait for them to thank them very much. I think it’s not very much hot for you. See the wind is blowing, […]
Shri Ganesha Puja. Delhi (India), 5 December 1993.
Today we are going to perform Puja to Shri Ganesha. We are starting the tour, and it is important to begin it with a Puja to Shri Ganesha. Especially in Delhi, Ganesha Puja is very necessary. Though we know very little about Shri Ganesha, in Maharashtra there are eight Ganeshas (Ashta Vinayaka), and there is Maha Ganesha in Ganapatiphule. And that is why they worship Shri Ganesha a lot. […]

Shri Ganesha puja. Berlin (Germany), 21 July 1993.
Today we are going to worship Shri Ganesha.
As you know in the whole of Europe, America, England, they have lost faith in Shri Ganesh; nor do they care for His powers and for His blessings. As a result, all His blessings are not on these countries.
The first blessing of Shri Ganesha, which is, I think is the highest, is the wisdom; that we learn what is good for us and what is bad for us, […]
Shri Ganesha Puja. Cabella (Italy), 30 August 1992.
Last time you had asked Me for Gurupada, and you should know that the essence of Guru is Shri Ganesha, the innocence. You must be knowing the story of a very devoted wife, faithful wife, of a sati. Her name was Anasuya, and she was so religious and so dedicated that they say that the wives of all the gods, Brahma, Vishnu, Mahesha, got very jealous of her. […]
Shri Ganesha Puja, Perth (Australia), 9 February 1992.
It is so joy giving to be back in Australia. When I wanted to come here in this month, Stephen told me that Perth would be scorchingly hot (Laughter) and, “I don’t think you should go to Perth first, you can go later.” So I said, “That part you leave it to me! The rest is alright!”
Now you have seen how it rained and rained and rained, […]

Shri Ganesha Puja. Cabella Ligure (Italy), 15 September 1991.
Today is the happiest day for all of you, for the whole universe, because Shri Ganesha was created. He was created to emit auspiciousness through His ‘Chaitanya’ [Hindi/Sanskrit meaning Divine Vibrations]. First, the whole cosmos was filled with this ‘Chaitanyasrishti’ [Hindi/Sanskrit meaning creation of Divine Vibrations]. Then Brahma Deva came into play, and He created all the matter. But the greatest blessings of the Divine Power was to symbolize ‘Chaitanya’, […]

Shri Ganesha Puja, Les Diablerets (Switzerland), 8 August 1989.
Today you have come here to worship me as Shri Ganesha. We have been singing the praise of Shri Ganesha before every puja. And we have such tremendous respect for Shri Ganesh, because we have found out that unless and until Shri Ganesha, who is the symbol of our innocence, is not awakened within us, we cannot enter into the Kingdom of God. And even to stay there and to enjoy the blessings of Shri Ganesha, […]
Shri Ganesha Puja, Madrid (Spain), 6 November 1987.
So today we have come here to Spain and there are so many other Spanish Sahaj Yogis here and you all have met them, by that they are very much strengthened in Sahaja Yoga that they feel that they have brothers and sisters all over the world, because in Spain there are very few Sahaj Yogis and they feel quite lost, because they are so few; but by your coming here it is a kind of a one hand helping another hand. […]
Diwali Puja, “Power of Innocence”. Lecco (Italy), 25 October 1987.
First – we bow to Shri Ganesha because Shri Ganesha is the source of innocence within us. So actually we bow to innocence within us. And this innocence is the one [that] gives you the enlightenment. As I told you yesterday the light has innocence, but this is innocent without knowledge. But your light is innocent with knowledge. We always think that the people who have got knowledge can never be innocent, […]
Talk about Innocence, Ganapatipule (India), 2 January 1987.
Today, in this blessed place of Mahaganesha, we have all assembled to go deep into our own beings, to enjoy our own glory.

Shri Kartikeya Puja. Grosshartpenning, Munich (Germany), 13 July 1986.

Shri Mahaganesha Puja. Ganapatipule (India), 1 January 1986.
Today we all have assembled here to pay our respect to Shri Ganesha.
Ganapatipule has a special significance – because He is Mahaganesha. The Ganesha at Mooladhara becomes Mahaganesha in the Virata, that is the brain. That means it is the seat of Shri Ganesha. That means Shri Ganesha governs from that seat the principle of innocence. As you know very well it is placed at the back in the region of optic thalamus, […]
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; […]

Shri Ganesha Puja, Riffelberg (Switzerland), 2 September 1984.
My Joy knows no bounds when we have come to worship this holy mountain which we have named as GANARAJ. Sometimes the words are not sufficient to hold the outpour of your Joy.

Shri Ganesha Puja. Perth (Australia), 1 March 1983.
I think it is the quality of wisdom which is still manifesting in many Australians, which many have lost because they have taken to the gross side of materialism. Shri Ganesha is the tremendous purifying power, because it cannot be contaminated by anyone, whatever you may try, it cannot be contaminated. Only thing is, it may recede back, it may not manifest, but whatever it is, it is in its Absolute Form. […]

Shri Ganesha Puja. Rahuri (India), 7 January 1983.
You have come here to learn something, to go deep into your experiences of the knowledge of your roots. Shri Krishna has said that this is a tree which is upside down, the roots are upwards and the leaves are outwards. In the same way, you know that Kundalini really, when it rises in the Sahastrara or above Sahastrara, then you start getting the feeling of Kundalini.

Today is a very unique thing that is happened – is a special luck for Sahaja yogis of Australia. This day has never been celebrated before in the history of Sahaja Yoga.

I bow to all the seekers of truth. The other day I told you a little bit about the first centre, called as Mooladhara chakra and Kundalini which is the resident consciousness in the triangular bone called as sacrum. As I told you that this is the pure desire power, pure desire power which has not yet been awakened and is not yet manifested within you, which resides here waiting for a moment to arise and to give you your second birth, […]
Public Program at Maccabean Hall. Sydney (Australia), 22 March 1981.
To all the seekers of truth. It’s such a pleasure to come to this great country where there are so many seekers. So many seekers are born in these modern times. There were never born so many, any time before. For example at the time of Christ, He had to gather crowds of people but they had no seeking; they just listened to Him because they felt it was something new. […]
Public Program, New Delhi (India), 5 February 1981.Today I am going to speak in general, about Sahaja yoga and Kundalini awakening.

Shri Ganesha Puja. Zurich (Switzerland), 12 October 1980.
You have to see that all the negativity goes away, around us, around the universe. So first we sing the praise of the Goddess; when She destroyed a very negative, satanic incarnation of Mahishasura. And when he was killed, all the gods praised Her for saving them from the destruction, and that happened long, long time back – about ten thousand years back. So this is the praise of the Gods of that so that, […]
