Gr​​é​goire​​’​s talk in Connecticut Connecticut (United States)

Gr​​é​goire​​’​s talk in Connecticut,December31,2014

This is the result of unplanned movement, and I think the group that is here is the group that had to be here with perhaps one qualification, that Dorothy and Jennifer are welcome, absolutely, but you do not have the same level of information that most of the other people will have. I will not adjust what I have to say , so you will have to hang on and absorb what you can because some of it is new for you, […]

Guru Puja: How To Become A Guru Campus, Cabella Ligure (Italy)

Guru Puja, “How to Become a Guru”, Cabella Ligure, Italy, 20 July 2008

Today is a very great day for all the sahaja yogis. Because Sahasrara opened in you, you could feel the existence of God. By saying there is God that was not sufficient and to say that there is no God also was wrong, very wrong and people have suffered who have said like them. Only after getting realisation you know that there is God and there are vibrations. […]

Mahashivaratri Puja: Guru Pad Pune (India)

Mahashivaratri Puja, Pune (India), 15 February 2004 

[English to Hindi Translation]

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. The form of the Shiva’s power we should consider as the Guru’s power.

Shri Ganesha Puja, Cabella Ligure, 13 September 2003.

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? Very, very difficult to say. But with the Sahaja Yoga they will all go in the proper way, […]

Navaratri Puja: Develop Wisdom Through Meditation, Bhakti & Shraddha Los Angeles (United States)

Today, we are going to worship the Goddess. That’s the, first the left side programming is with Her, but later on, at Sahasrara, 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.

Devi Puja: The heart is closed, which has to open out Ealing Ashram, London (England)

Puja in Ealing Ashram, London (UK) 30th August 2002

I don’t know what to say! (laughter)

You are living in this house now and it was very nice because Sahaja Yogis were living here and they enjoyed my stay here. But we have to change and progress – that’s the point is. With every change you must progress otherwise it has no meaning, the change has no meaning.

So now they are thinking that I should now be in the house here. […]

Guru Puja. Cabella Ligure (Italy), 21 July 2002.

(A loud thunder-clap followed by applause)

In India they were all waiting for the monsoons and they are so much worried because the rain did not come. So, I was giving bandhan to the rain and it came here (applause and Mother laughs). And now also they have told, on the television, that it is going to rain in India. But first in Italy! (laughter)

I was told that in Italy you needed rain very much and the first rain you had, […]

Evening Program, The Betrayed Prophet, Eve of Guru Puja Campus, Cabella Ligure (Italy)

2002-07-20 Talk after Evening Program of the play: The Betrayed Prophet (Eve of Guru Puja)
My heart is so full, because in this great drama you have really shown the beauty of Mohammed life; how people have misused and troubled all the world around; and now, they are in trouble. He never wanted that but how human beings misunderstand such a great prophet like him.
I must congratulate Guido and the all of you for acting so well and what a drama it was! […]

Today it’s a different day altogether for all of you because this is the puja of Adi Shakti, and Adi Shakti is a complete personality. It’s not only the Left Side that you know.

Sahasrara Puja: Watch Yourself Campus, Cabella Ligure (Italy)

Sahasrara Puja. Cabella Ligure (Italy), 5 May 2002.

Today is a very great day I must say,
to celebrate Sahasrara, the puja of Sahasrara. It’s a very unique thing that
has happened that your Sahasraras were opened out.

There were some very few people in
this whole world; there were some Sufis, there were some saints, some other
people also in China and all. But very few, very few got their Sahasrara
opened out. So whatever they said, […]

I See A Mountain Cabella Ligure (Italy)

I see a mountain from my window

Standing like an ancient sage

Desireless, full of Love.

So many trees and so many flowers

They plunder the mountain all the time.

Its attention is not disturbed

And when the rain pours

Like many pitchers of clouds bursting

And it fills the mountain with greenery,

The storm may come soaring,

Filling the lake with compassion

And the rivers flow running down

Towards the calling sea.

The sun will create clouds and

Wind carries on its feathery wings

The rain onto the mountain. […]

Diwali Puja: Soldiers of Divine Love Los Angeles (United States)

Diwali Puja. Lake Piru, near Los Angeles, California (USA) 18 November 2001.
It’s a very, very great day today, I should say, where the evil has been suppressed. The evil that spreads its power all over is only because of two factors: one is that you are not knowledgeable, you are still blind, and you follow things which are not right, but you think are powerful. This illusion creates not only problems, but absolute destruction.
So we faced a very big challenge, […]

5th Day of Navaratri: Overcome hatred with love Loutraki, Sportcamp (Greece)

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 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 situation, that there are people who are themselves devils I think and also mesmerized by them, who are trying to do something which they should never have done. […]

Guru Puja: Introspection, Love & Purity Campus, Cabella Ligure (Italy)

Guru Puja, “Introspection, love and purity” Cabella Ligure (Italy), 8 July 2001.

You don’t know how your Mother feels to see so many people who have become, really, gurus, themselves. They have been seeking the Truth in very difficult times. They have been wanting to know what is the Truth. And this difficult time, itself, has served to act upon your minds that, what is happening in this world, whatever we are seeing around us, in the whole world also, […]

Adi Shakti Puja: The Work of the Adi Shakti Campus, Cabella Ligure (Italy)

“The Work of the Adi Shakti”, Adi Shakti Puja, Cabella Ligure (Italy), 3 June 2001.
Today we are worshipping Adi Shakti.
I think this is the most important puja because it is the power of Adi Shakti that has given you Self-realisation, that has given you the truth, that has given you the power of compassion and love. 
That’s the power that separated from Sadashiva. And this power wanted, Herself, to create this complete universe — universes after universes. […]

Sahasrara Puja: To Break Sahasrara Campus, Cabella Ligure (Italy)

Sahasrara Puja. Cabella Ligure (Italy), 6 May 2001.

Today, I bow to all the Sahaja Yogis who have found the Truth.

There has been, from ages, the seeking for the Truth. And when people discovered that there’s no other way but to surrender to the Divine that you can find the truth, they did not know how to do it, how to work it out.

There have been seekers all over the world.I went to Turkey and I was amazed there have been lots of Sufis, […]

Mahashivaratri Puja: Destructive Power of Shri Mahadeva New Delhi (India)

“Destructive Power Of Shri Mahadeva,” 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’s not easy to conceive – also to reach the depth – of His greatness unless and until we are humble. […]

Diwali Puja Los Angeles (United States)

Diwali Puja. Lake Piru, near Los Angeles, California (USA) – 29 October 2000.
It’s a great day today for the whole world that we are celebrating this Diwali Puja in America. It’s very important. Here, where people have been able to earn money, to have lots of money sometimes, and are also people who are ruined completely because of money.

 Weddings, Talk To Bridegrooms
Palazzo Doria, Cabella Ligure (Italy), September 17th, 2000

I didn’t give any lecture to the girls.

Men have to understand that marriage is a very important part of your life. And your time and respect should be given for that. […]

Shri Ganesha Puja: Your innocence will save this world Campus, Cabella Ligure (Italy)

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 Krishna Puja: Spontaneity and Creativity Campus, Cabella Ligure (Italy)

Shri Krishna puja. Cabella Ligure (Italy), 20 August 2000.

Today we are here to worship Shri Krishna within us. 

As you know you all have been seeking before coming to Sahaj Yoga. You went to different places, read lots of books and also some of you were lost. And, in that seeking, perhaps you did not know what you were seeking. What you were seeking was to know yourself. In all religions it is said ‘know thyself’: is a common thing all of them have said. […]

Guru Puja: Shraddha Campus, Cabella Ligure (Italy)

Guru Puja, “Shraddha”. Cabella Ligure (Italy), 23 July 2000.

Today we are here to know about guru principle. What does a guru do. Whatever you have, all the precious things within you, he discovers them for your knowledge. Actually it is all there – everything. All the knowledge, all the spirituality, all the joy, is there. (little laughter as a dog walks on stage) Right time! (more laughter). It’s all contained within you. Only thing the Guru does (is) makes you knowledgeable about your knowledge, […]

Talk after Sahasrara Puja: Penetrate Your Attention Campus, Cabella Ligure (Italy)

Talk after Sahasrara Puja, “Penetrate Your Attention”,. Cabella Ligure, Italy, 7 May 2000

It was really a wonderful idea to put my attention to all these fields of life which are very important and, as it is, I have attention on all of them and I care for all that. But I would say now you all people put in your attention to it, because it is you who can do something about it. You can start with the nature as they said is this: we have to be kind to the nature. […]

Sahasrara puja: Attain that Sahaja state Campus, Cabella Ligure (Italy)

Sahasrara puja, “Attain that Sahaja state”,  Cabella Ligure (Italy), 07 May 2000.

Thirty years back, when Sahasrara was opened, I found darkness all over. People were so ignorant. They had no awareness [about] what they have to find. Of course, I found they wanted to find something that was unknown, but they did not know what was unknown, what they have to find. And they were extremely ignorant people, about themselves, and about their surroundings, and about the aim of their life. […]

Evening Program before Sahasrara Puja Day 1 Campus, Cabella Ligure (Italy)

Evening Program before Sahasrara Puja Day 1, Cabella Ligure, May 5th 2000

[The evening program is concluded by a santoor concert by Bhajan Sopori. During the concert Shri Mataji says”Wah”. At the end of the concert: “Wah wah”.]

(Shri Mataji speaks first in Hindi: “…Sukhwinder…”)

It is really a very memorable program we had, as was told before, and I’m amazed how it has all been done so well.

The idea of calling Bhajan Sopori was very much appreciated in the beginning. […]

Mahashivaratri Puja Pune (India)

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, […]

Athena – the Primordial Mother Athens, Caravel Hotel (Greece)

Public Program, Greece, 9 November 1999.

I bow to all the seekers of truth. First of all, we have to know what is the truth we are seeking and how we are going to seek it and what is the proof that you have got the truth. Firstly, we must know that you cannot purchase the truth. It is, you cannot market it, because truth is love and love is compassion.

So now, I am going to tell you about the truth, […]

Shri Ganesha Puja: We must respect Mother Earth Campus, Cabella Ligure (Italy)

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. […]

Shri Virata Puja: First of all, you have to rise above your ego Campus, Cabella Ligure (Italy)

Shri Virata Puja. Cabella (Italy), 5 September 1999.

Tonight, we are going to worship Shri Krishna as Virata.

First, it is important to understand the incarnation of Shri Krishna. The word ‘Krishna’ comes from the word ‘Krishi’ – ‘Krishi’ means ‘agriculture’. He sowed the seeds of spirituality. And for that, first of all He had to think: “Where are we, as far as spirituality is concerned? How is the land?”

So, what had happened at the time of Shri Rama is that he had created lots of maryadas. […]

Guru Puja: Assimilating the Absolute Knowledge Campus, Cabella Ligure (Italy)

Guru puja, “Assimilating the Absolute Knowledge”, Cabella Ligure (Italy), 1 August 1999.

Since we have come to Cabella, it is the ten years completed! So you can imagine how, in these ten years, we have been able to progress in Sahaja Yoga.

Now, today, we are going to have a Guru puja. As I have said, you are all gurus and you want to worship me as your Guru – is alright – but the main thing one should understand [is] that you have become guru, […]

Adi Shakti Puja: Sahaja Yogis have to transform others Canajoharie (United States)

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. […]

Sahasrara Puja: Our Awareness has to become Paramchaitanya Campus, Cabella Ligure (Italy)

Sahasrara Puja, “Our Awareness has to become Paramchaitanya” Cabella Ligure, (Italy), 9 May 1999.

Today we have gathered here to do the Sahasrara puja.

Sahasrar, the word ‘sahastr’, in Sanskrit language, means ‘one thousand’. And there are one thousand petals in our brain which get enlightened. Of course, the doctors are quarrelling on that point but forget about them.

Now these petals are kept ready for our enlightenment, and these are really the nerves, one thousand nerves, […]

Evening Program, Eve of Christmas Puja Ganapatipule (India)

Evening Program, Eve of Christmas Puja. Ganapatipule (Maharashtra, India), 24 December 1998.

It
is very difficult to describe this inner joy. You can only enjoy it, you can
only feel it. It’s something so innate to see that so many of you have learnt
this difficult music and all of you have been enjoying it.

I
went to various places in the West and I felt that, “Why even small little
children, boys and girls, take to something which is self-destructive? […]

Diwali Puja: Expression of Love Novi Ligure (Italy)

Diwali Puja, Novi Ligure, Italy, October 25th, 1998
I am overjoyed really today to see you all here to celebrate the Diwali Puja. We were to be in Portugal but it was not so – so we are here.

Shri Ganesha Puja: Ekakarita Campus, Cabella Ligure (Italy)

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. […]

Guru Puja: Humility & Complete Obedience Campus, Cabella Ligure (Italy)

Guru puja, “You must learn obedience”, Cabella Ligure (Italy), 12 July 1998.

Today, we have assembled here to do the Guru Puja.

The word ‘guru’ comes from ‘the one which is magnetic’, ‘the person who is magnetic’. The one which attracts the attention of the seekers, is the guru. Also it means ‘the heaviness’ or, you can say: a person who is very steady, who is very deep, who has the knowledge and who can act like the Mother Earth; […]

Adi Shakti Puja: You Must Develop Humility Campus, Cabella Ligure (Italy)

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, […]

Sahasrara Puja: Blessing of Divine Pours Only If Sahasrara is Completely Open Campus, Cabella Ligure (Italy)

Sahasrara Puja. Cabella Ligure (Italy), 10 May 1998.

Today, it’s a great day because Sahasrara 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 Sahasrara and the motherhood go together.

Sahasrara 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: You Can Spread Sahaja Yoga Only Through Love and Compassion Istanbul (Turkey)

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 overcame
it.

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, […]
