“I bow to all the seekers of truth”
At the very outset we have to know that truth is what it is. You cannot change it, you cannot describe it and you cannot say you know the truth. Unless and until you now it, it is not truth. It is a very big problem that people believe they know the truth, […]
1994-0605 Public Program Royal Albert Hall, London UK – H.H Shri Mataji Nirmala Devi
Public Program, Christchurch (New Zealand), 26 February 1992.
I bow to all the seekers of truth.
At the very outset we have to know that truth is what it is. We cannot change it, we cannot transform it and we cannot know the absolute truth at this human awareness. So we have to become something subtler. As Christ has said you are to be born again. Doesn’t mean we can brand ourselves as born again but is a happening of becoming something else than what you are.

Her Holiness Shri Mataji: You can put vibrated water… […]
Conversation with yogis. Brompton Square Talk, London (UK), 3 March 1986.
This was the last thing I used in My lectures, in Delhi, that Shri Krishna has said that the human awareness goes downward and the roots of the human awareness are in the brain. And when human beings start going downward they move in the opposite direction of the Divine. That’s all He has said. He has not said more than that. Now see, […]

Public Program. Rome (Italy), 21 May 1985.
The main thing is to get your Realization. No one can guarantee it. As it is a living process so it has to work out. And that you should get that Realization is the main point. To get the Realization I would say if some people want to come on the stage can come also. If there are people sitting on the ground are in difficulties can come on the stage. […]

Talk at Rotary Club
from 01:15:00 :
Q: What should be the relation between state of mind and awakened Kundalini? Will it affect the body or mind?
Shri Mataji : Actually it affects everything but let’s see how it worrks? Now, what is ‘mind’ also is not a very clearcut idea. People don’t have a clearcut idea about ‘mind’, you see.
To them ‘mind’ means ‘mana’ or ‘buddhi’, or ‘ahamkar’. Now, we will make it clear to you that when the Kriya Shakti [Power of action] works and acts then you create Ahamkara that is Ego, […]
Workshop with new people. Nirmala Palace – Nightingale Lane Ashram, London (United Kingdom) 1982-08-18
One thing is that TM people ask too many questions and they take time. So just don’t ask so many questions, just establish your Realization, alright? Put some TM with him, that’s better. [Towards some Yogi] Will you look after him? Alright. Come along, you come this side, he’ll look after you, the deputy director. [Laugh].

The sound, first time, the sound that was created, […]
1981-05-10 Organization of Sahaja Yoga in England
Recording starts not at the beginning of the speech […] – personality that everybody wants to follow, to become, to love. This would be very selfish to say that I’m enjoying, it’s something very funny. You see, some people are like that, self-certificated, again I call them. ‘Oh, I’m enjoying myself, I’m no problems, you see, why should you worry?’ This is all nonsense, absolute nonsense it is. It is that you are enjoying your ego that. […]

It is the special power by which we do All Divine work, even forgiving. When you say, “Mother, forgive us “, the technique by which I forgive you is Nirmala Vidya.

The technique by which all the Mantras are manifesting themselves and are effective is also Nirmala Vidya. ‘Nirmala’ means ‘pure’, ‘Vidya’ means ‘knowledge’. Nirmala Vidya is purest knowledge or the knowledge of this technique. […]

“(…) Even by blindly accepting it you have not been able to solve your problems. If we could put put our attention to this question that there must be some meaning to us and that there must be some arrangement within us to manifest that meaning [we are…] you are with Me. It is very easy to deny and defy everything intellectually and intelligence gives you capacity to cheat yourself all the time. […]
“Today I’m going to tell you what are the mantras of Sahastrara, which are very important. You start it from the back, put your right hand towards me, put your left at the back. In the centre here, or you can say that, where there’s a little getting [?] point, on that point. That is Mahaganesha.

“The three channels”, public programme, Caxton Hall, London (UK), 23 October 1978.
No doubt, everyone will have to go through this process, but how many really want to be themselves? There are certain people who say, “We are seeking.”
When I ask them, “What are you seeking?” they say, “We are seeking joy, peace, happiness…” Some of them are worried if they are worthy of it or not, whether they should really know their Self or not. […]
The environment plays a big role in the reaction of a person. The sensitivity of the charkas becomes dull after the first few shocks to them. Then a human being starts living with all the shocking habits very easily. He exists, but in a very superficial manner and does not want to go down into his depth as he cannot face the shocks that are stored within. He tries to forget them as that helps him to exist. […]
