French Polynesia's collective first wellness camp
Please see a message and lovely video from the French Polynesian Collective.
“Dear New Zealand and Australia collectives,
We hope you are doing all very well. We wish to thank you again for having given us the opportunity to have Doctor Dipali Bandekar in French Polynesia this year.
It was because you helped us to coordinate her trip from Australia and New Zealand that we could afford to make her travel until our island. Otherwise, If we had to make her travel all the way from India, as we are a small collective, it would not have been possible, so thank you very much once again.
We wish to share with you a video of our wellness camp, that our italian sahaj friends and guests that attended our wellness camp made. They had the beautiful idea to share it with Cabella people at Guru puja, so you may have seen it already.
Here is also a link to our Photo album on google photos : CLICK HERE
We have the desire that Doctor Dipali can travel again next year to Tahiti. If some yogis from your collectives wish to join a wellness camp in Tahiti next year, we will be very happy to have you here! We wish to share more with our sahaj brothers and sisters from the region, so it will be a good opportunity to do so !
Lots of love from us all,
The French Polynesia's collective”
Let’s give bandhans for the continued growth of the Greek and French Polynesian Collectives!

"So why do we do Navaratri?"
HH Shri Mataji Nirmala Devi Navaratri Puja, Hampstead London, 23rd September 1984.
"So why do we do Navaratri? In the heart, to do Navaratri is to accept the powers of the Shakti, to realize the power that all these chakras have got in themselves, and that when they are enlightened how you can express all these powers of these nine chakras within ourselves; the seven chakras plus the heart and the moon makes it nine."
HH Shri Mataji Nirmala Devi Navaratri Puja, Hampstead London, 23rd September 1984.
We hope to see you all there at Gidgegannup!
Let's all enjoy the blessings of our Divine Mother as we worship Her together at this Auspicious time.

To Her Holiness Shri Mataji Nirmala Devi
Thank You Shri Mataji
Dearest Holiness Shri Mataji Nirmala Devi,
We thank you again and again for blessing us with the great privilege and honour of worshipping You in Your form of Shri MahaGanesha at Your Shri Ganesha Swayambhu, Uluru.
We thank you again and again for the opportunity to serve You and host Your MahaGanesha Puja in 2019.
We thank you again and again for making all the arrangements run so smoothly for the whole Seminar.
We thank You again and again for all the joy and love You showered upon all Your Children during the MahaGanesha Puja!
Ultimately, we thank You again and again for incarnating on this earth to save and emancipate all of humankind.
“Ganesha has appeared in Australia”
“Now this Ganesha has appeared in Australia as Uluru. It’s a very big mountain which looks like Shri Ganesh. It has also a very big trunk, going down. But vibrations itself will prove that it is Shri Ganesh, from the Mother Earth. He has appeared in many places, Shri Ganesh, not only there. But there, I felt is really the source, source of vibrations. That’s what it is. And in Australia I thank Him that because of Him only, Sahaja Yoga has worked so well and so easily.”
HH Shri Mataji Nirmala Devi – Shri Ganesha Puja, Cabella 25th September 1999

Some Yogis have already shared their stories and photos. Read Yogis' experiences. CLICK HERE
A big Thank You!
The Shri MahaGanesha Puja Seminar was an example of how amazing all our brothers and sisters are!
As instruments of Shri Mataji, Yogis have worked together so well to make the Seminar so enjoyable and significant!
We are really fortunate to belong to such a dynamic and dedicated Collective!
We expressed our thanks at the Seminar but we again just wanted to sincerely recognise the role of so many Yogis who serve
Shri Mataji in so many ways. We won’t name all the names as we would undoubtedly miss someone out but we all know who you are!
We recognise all the Collectives who arranged to bring Shri Mataji’s jewellery and silver to the centre of Australia. A big thank you to the Adelaide Collective’s huge efforts to bring breakfast supplies for us all, flowers for the first day and then set up Shri Mataji’s altar immediately after 2 full days on a bus trip! Also to the Sydney Collective for packing (and unpacking) so much for the Seminar on the bus, including the rest of the flowers, and Shri Mataji’s Chair - the beauty of the flowers throughout the Seminar was truly amazing!
To those Yogis who arranged the backdrop and photos of Shri Mataji a big thank you! It was so wonderful to have creative contributions from across Australia and New Zealand!
To the Yogis who helped with breakfast arrangements every day -  thank you!!
To those who helped with arrangements for registration,  web streaming, setups for the evenings, and of course accommodation - thank you!!
To all those who assisted with every part of the Seminar - a BIG thank you !! The joy of being just a small part of this huge undertaking was felt by so many.
We cannot begin to understand what Shri Mataji has worked out through this Puja. We simply and humbly offer our
devotion and prayers to the Almighty Goddess with our promise to assume our positions and spread Sahaja Yoga.

Staff needed for Cabella School 2019-2020
Dear brothers and sisters,
Cabella International Sahaja School needs your help! Please forward this message to all yogis / yoginis who may be interested to join our staff team for the upcoming 2019-2020 school year.
“The best and extraordinary idealistic children should come out of this school after education. This doesn’t mean that they will become very rich and very dominating personality. But they will be such that they will become foundations of this world like Shri Ganesha is foundation of this universe. In the same way we have to build many such foundations.”  Shri Mataji, Delhi, 15 December 1983
At the end of this school year, it gives us so much joy to see how much children grow in a Sahaj School, in a multitude of dimensions. Here are some of their reflections on what they learned this year:
I have learned how to trust the power of meditation and vibrations (Satya, class 5).
I learned that through meditation you can connect to people with strings of love (Ananya, class 4).
I learned that there is no such thing as mistakes but they are just lessons, and the most important thing is that you learn from them (Yasmin, class 4).
I take with me that we can always trust our brothers and sisters to help us (Maya, class 5).
I will bring joy and innocence in my new school, where I will go next year (Giulia, class 5).
If you would like to be part of this journey and discover that Cabella School with its challenges and joys is a school not only for children but for all of us, here is your chance:
For the coming academic year Cabella International Sahaja School (CISS) is looking for
·       a head of boarding
·       caregivers (dorm uncles and aunties)
·       teachers / teaching assistants
·       volunteers to help in the kitchen
·       volunteers to help in housekeeping (cleaning & laundry)
·       volunteers to help with driving & maintenance
More information on the role requirements and the application procedure can be found on the Working at CISS page of our website.
CLICK HERE .  .  All applicants must be available for the entire school year (from 26 August 2019 until Adi Shakti Puja 2020) and eligible to stay in Europe (Schengen) for this period.

To receive your Self Realisation please join us to be guided through the simple process of

Suitable for newcomers and regular Sahaja Yoga meditators.
Quotes from Shri Mataji Nirmala Devi about Self-Realisation
“Self Realisation is the first encounter with reality.”
“Blossom time has come, and many ancient seekers are today getting their Self Realisation.”
“Now the stage today is to know that Self Realisation gives you experiences and then your faith is established.
Not blind but open enlightened faith.”
“Self Realisation makes us humble … replace temper with compassion …
the more innocent you are, the more blissful you will be.”
“The truth, which can be actualised after Self Realisation, is that you are not this body,
 this mind, this conditioning from the past, this ego, these emotions, but that you are the Pure Spirit.”
“Only after Self Realisation, and only then, is there a direct experience of the Spirit.
It then manifests its powers in the human personality, and its light enlightens the
consciousness into a new awareness. The divine intelligence of the Spirit radiates on all sides.”
“After Self Realisation it is easy to perceive the truth that all these religions were born
on the same tree of spirituality, but that those in charge of each religion plucked the flowers
 from the living source and are now fighting each other with the dead flowers of merely partial truths.”

Please enjoy the Video (below) of the Celebrations and Joy.

Heaven at Balmoral for Easter 2019
Holy Mother thank you for the glorious treasure of Mother Earth.
-Of beautiful times of worship, there has been no dearth …
But Easter commemorating Lord Jesus’ Resurrection was a Holy Highlight.
You look after us and bring us together with your all-pervading might.
We came to visit You and Your Heavenly Son – Lord Jesus.
But always You give us so much love, peace and joy: - just to please us !
This was so at Balmoral for Lord Jesus’ celebration, for His Resurrection.
We were all in Heaven. Holy Mother …….   Hundreds of angelic, joyous Sahaja Yogis gathered together to praise and to acknowledge Our Mother’s vast greatness, and Her enormous love.—
Plus Our Lord Jesus’ Resurrection, which You have made our resurrection.
The Vibrations grew continually, with most mornings and evenings watching or listening to Our Mother’s holy words about Lord Jesus.
The beautiful place was host to great love and joy shared and enhanced by hundreds of brothers and sisters.
The 2 beautiful Indian Doctors, every day were active in clearing our Subtle Systems, as small groups of us sat for diagnosis and clearing.  We were given ‘homework’ – 2 sets of 108 names, plus the Arthava Sheesha, and the Hanuman Chalisa. This was closely linked with the 2 Pujas we shared – 1 Shri Bhairava Nat, and the other – Shri Hanuman Puja.  Our attention was continually encouraged as 2 Havans were held, with excellent, careful preparation and great attention.  This attention was maintained and enhanced by several collective shoebeats and footsoaks. It is an appropriate time to mention the morning and evening Puja meditations.  These were very beautiful – as stated above, we savoured Our Mother’s beautiful talks about Lord Jesus.
Radhika Richardson every day, looked after us all as we arrived – sorting the different monies due, and arranging accommodation.  Thank you Radhika !  This is a good time to thank and mention the many dozens of Yogis helping to make this Seminar so beautiful.  Apologies if I miss out anybody …
A small but valuable group of men looked after lighting and sound equipment, no mean job, requiring lengthy alertness.  Thankyou. .. There were several (mainly ladies) who looked after security and “books”, pendants, Fundraising, Raffles, Information etc.  So important was Beena and her vital team of Yogis cooking, preparing, cleaning – a massive job. Thanks a million.
Thanks and appreciation go to Andrei, Jenny, Lyn and Lisa who bore the brunt of pleasing Our Mother protocols and minute to minute Collective arrangements: a very crucial and important part of the weekend…. Again, Thankyou ! This is an overdue time to mention. That there were Sahaja Yogis from around the World as well as from all Australian states, plus 11 of us from New Zealand… (We value your wonderful Collectivity which we all enjoy)
Thank you also to dear Simon and Gabrielle who looked after us, as they so carefully look after Mother’s property … Many works have been achieved, some important ones are in progress on this magnificent piece of Mother Earth.
The entertainment was such a special feature.  There was some practice and rehearsal.  The main evening ‘show’ was stupendous…. There were beautiful dances, some very moving and beautiful groups of Yoginis dancing in perfect synchronisation to great rhythms and wonderful varied music.  They were all so very beautiful- giving us tingles and raising Sahasraras ….. exquisite !  Special mention should be made – John Smiley formed a ‘Choir’.  After 2 1 hour practices 3 wonderful songs were presented by 30-40 singers in 4 parts ! All. Plus John were loudly applauded.
John was at his very best for the Puja also, which was very devotional indeed….. It is hard to include every beautiful feature of this wonderful Easter Festival.   Apologies if I have missed anybody, or anything out… We had such a wonderful time !   Can I conclude by thanking and praising Our Dear Mother… Plus all those wonderful Sahaja Yogis, who with love, looked after us all and would have made Our Dearest Mother happy.
HOLY MOTHER WE WERE ALL IN HEAVEN !! Thankyou again and again.
With love, your son David.

It is with immense joy that we, your Australian Family, invite you all to join the pilgrimage to the Shri Ganesha Swayambu, in the centre of Australia, to worship Our Divine Mother in the form of Shri MahaGanesha. On the auspicious occasion of the birthday of Shri Ganesha, Sahaja Yogis will offer their devotion and seek the blessings of Shri MahaGanesha sakshat Shri Adi Shakti Mataji who is Omnipotent, Omnipresent, and Omniscient!
Knowing that Only Shri Mataji is the Doer of All Deeds that have been done, are being done and will be done, we are so looking forward to hosting you, our Sahaja Yogi brothers and sisters, from all corners of this beautiful Mother Earth, to offer this Maha Puja at Uluru and collectively pray for our collective evolution and the emancipation of humankind.
Love, Andre and Lyn on behalf of your Australian Family
Fulfilling HH Shri Mataji’s request
HH Shri Mataji requested that Shri MahaGanesha Puja be hosted at Uluru, the Shri Ganesha Swayambhu. We are so much looking forward to fulfilling HH Shri Mataji’s request and to share with you this auspicious Puja at Uluru – the Swayambhu of Shri Ganesha which HH Shri Mataji has said is the Source of the Vibrations.
“Ganesha has appeared in Australia”
“Now this Ganesha has appeared in Australia as Uluru. It’s a very big mountain which looks like Shri Ganesh. It has also a very big trunk, going down. But vibrations itself will prove that it is Shri Ganesh, from the Mother Earth. He has appeared in many places, Shri Ganesh, not only there.

Wamuran Landscaping
Jai Shri Mataji
During 2018 & 2019 Shri Mataji's Queensland Wamuran Centre has been blessed with a new meditation hall, most of it supervised by Debbie Miller (previous QLD SY Coordinator).
The developments' finishing touches began in April 2019, as a Landscape garden was integrated & planted in dedication to Her Holiness in the form of Shri Adi Bhoomi Devi & Her Beautiful creations of wilderness habitat of the planet Earth.   Within 7 days nearly 300 Native Australian plants including 10 trees were planted out.
This garden has been designed to beautify Australia & includes hardy Indigenous plants from Queensland that can withstand the harsh Outback climate with less maintenance. As it establishes & grows it will also attract an abundance of beneficial Native animals including bird-life.
We have created this garden very carefully through Shri Mataji's Grace with the intention of the Sahaja Yoga collective in mind, so it may grow & be respected as a symbol of Our Australian Heritage & it's Universal Significance in Sahaja Yoga Culture. Also we thank Her Holiness from our Hearts' for allowing us once again to be involved in such a special project & giving us the privilege to initiate it.
Yours Sincerely,
Jacob Nadas ( Horticulturist Sahaji from Sydney)
Greg Moeliker (Civil Engineer & Construction Co-ordinator Sahaji from Queensland)
Happy 50th Sahasrara Day!!
Jai Shri Mataji!
HH Shri Mataji Nirmala Devi Sahasrara Puja 1986
Thank you Shri Mataji again and again for opening the Sahasrara of the Universe and saving humanity!!
Dearest Mother it's all Yours, we are Yours, our collective heart is Yours, all things are Yours, our lives are Yours!
"But the whole power of Sahastrara is love"
"Today is the nineteenth Sahastrara Day, if you count the first one, the day the Sahastrara was opened. I have to tell you the story about the Sahastrara Day, about how it was decided, long time back, before I incarnated. They had a big meeting in the heavens, all the thirty-five crores (350 million) of gods, the deities were there present to decide what was to be done. This is the ultimate that we have to do to human beings, to open their Sahastrara, to open their awareness to the spirit, to the real knowledge of the divine, to remove the darkness of ignorance, and it had to be spontaneously because it has to work the living force of God. Also it had to be very quick. So all the Gods requested that now I, the Adi Shakti has to take the birth."
HH Shri Mataji Nirmala Devi, Sahastrara Puja, 8 May, 1988, Fregene
"But the whole power of Sahastrara is love. So if you see that, this brain has to love; brain has to love.
Jump in the ocean of love - finished! Once you jump into the ocean of love there's nothing to be done; just to be enjoyed - every wave of it; every hue of it, every touch of it. That is what one has to learn by reasoning that Sahaja Yoga is nothing but is love. May God Bless you all."
HH Shri Mataji Nirmala Devi, Sahasrara Puja, 6 May 1989, Sorrento, Italy

Have you already heard about the Green Guardians?
As yogis our enlightened collective attention can strongly contribute and guide in subtle and vibratory ways, to working out this environmental crisis humanity has created. For instance, on the 22nd of April, initiated by our Green Guardians, a group of yogis recently gathered for a beautiful seminar in Mongiardino to celebrate a Puja to Adi Bhoomi Devi on the occasion of the International Earth Day. The vibrations and the connection with the beauty of the nature around us was magnificent. It was the start of a new sustainability journey...

CISS: Call for staff and volunteers
To work in Cabella School means to dedicate time to deepening my own values, listening to and learning from everyone, young or old, to learn better ways to take up things.

India Tour 2018
 Nashik • Jambut • Pratishtan •  Kolaphur • Bramapuri
Dear Family,
Jai Shri Mataji!
Please enjoy this latest letter from the Yogis on India Tour:
Nashik - a welcome with warm smiles and open hearts.
After Saptashringi we travelled on to visit the Nashik collective for lunch where we were welcomed with many dhol drums, warm smiles and open hearts.  After lunch, we spoke about spreading Sahaja Yoga in our respective countries and the challenges faced. Some of us also shared personal experiences with Shri Mataji. We made a donation towards the building of the Nasik collective’s Puja hall, gave them a banner for their public programs, Aboriginal clapping sticks and invited them to join us in Australia for 2019.
Jambut - welcomed with drumming, dancing and aarti.
It was then time to travel on to Jambut. There we were once more welcomed with drumming, dancing and aarti. We were dressed in the traditional feta, the headwear of royalty. We walked through the village to attend a children's concert at the Jambut school. The children were given Shri Mataji's pendant and a donation was made to the school. After dinner we began the long drive to Shri Mataji's home, Pratishtan in Pune, arriving there at 4:30am.
Pratishtan Pune - spent some time resting in our Mother's home.
After travelling for 48 hours straight, it was bliss to spend some time resting in our Mother's home. We slept, meditated and foot soaked. We were given the opportunity to do a tour of Her home and sit and meditate in Her bedroom. There we prayed for the removal of all obstacles to the complete success of Easter Seminar, marriages and Shri Mahaganesha Puja.
That evening we had a concert for the public and local collective that went into the late evening. We could strongly feel Shri Mataji's loving attention as we sang and danced with full heart.
After the concert, we were invited into Shri Mataji's kitchen. The ladies were given outi and the men beautiful sandalwood combs.
Kolaphur - They danced and sang as if they had been yogis all their lives!
The next morning, we left Shri Mataji's home to begin our journey to Kolaphur, the location of the final concert of the tour. On the way we stopped at Kolaphur's Mahalakshmi Temple.
Shri Mataji speaks of this temple in Her 1990 speech from Kolahpur and the importance of yogis visiting temples such as this:
"Wherever you go to the temples where the prithvi tattwa (Mother Earth) has created the Swayambhu statues, there, completely people started making money out of it, because of this there will be less of Chaitanya (vibrations). Now you have come (Sahaja yogis) and it is possible again the Mahalakshmi (vibrations) get purified."
Inside we took the darshan of Shri Mahalakshmi, said the Mahalakshmi mantra, sang bhajans and took the Three Great Mantras, by which time we felt a rush of cool vibrations.
We then went straight to the Kolahpur program, walking past huge billboards with Shri Mataji's beautiful face advertising the program. About 1,000 people got their realisation. They danced and sang with us as if they had been yogis all their lives.
Thank you from Kolaphur collective.
The next morning after the public program, the Kolaphur collective sent us this message:
“Jai Shree Mataji!
Dear everyone at Music of Joy,
We don't have enough words to tell how much joy and divine love we have experienced because of you all. We thank Shri Mataji again and again for giving such wonderful brothers and sisters around the world. There is kind of deepness and quietude we are experiencing after the concert! Thank you, Shri Mataji, for all these precious moments!
Shri Mataji has said "you will see me in others"- this is what it is, we could feel Shri Mataji through you and your music!!! Dearest brothers and sisters, we give you all our love and we thank you. Let this divine love between us and the bhakti for our Holy Mother be ever-growing and ever flowing!  We wish to see you all again.
Love, Kolaphur Collective”
Krishna River dancing with joy for Param Pujya Shri Mataji in Brahmapuri
VIDEO Please Click on Pic
Bramapuri - where you feel the Brahma, the Chaitanya.
On our final day, we rose early to make the journey to Bramapuri.
Shri Mataji said of Bramapuri in Her 1986 speech:
"So today is another day of Saturday, where we are sitting on the bank of Krishna river. See how it works out? Krishna river represents the power of Shri Krishna. So, the Mahalakshmi Tattwa has to go to the Krishna's state, of the witness state and that's how we are here today on this special occasion in Brahmapuri, also the word Brahmapuri means where you feel the Brahma, the Chaitanya which you can feel it on this earth."
As soon as we stepped off the bus, the peace and silence washed away the tiredness of the last few days. We made our way to Shri Mataji to greet Her, meditate, sing bhajans and lay garlands. Some of us then spontaneously gave thanks and offered prayers. We also collectively asked for the full awakening of the witness power of the world sangha.
We then made our way down to the river, passing a cottage where Shri Mataji had stayed and the bathing place of Shri Sita. The waters of the Krishna River were cool and soothing, touching the depths of our Spirit.
All too soon it was time to make our way back to Pratishthan and begin to make our separate ways back home. By Shri Mataji's Grace we were able to offer flowers and prasad to Shri Mataji in Her bedroom and make our final prayers; we asked Shri Mataji to look after all the new seekers who received their realisation during the tour, to bless the Australian collective in 2019, and to remove all the obstacles to the complete success of Easter Seminar, marriages, Realise Australia Tours and Shri MahaGanesha Puja.
4,000 Seekers receive their Self Realisation during the tour.
Dearest Shri Mataji, we thank You again and again and again for allowing over 4,000 seekers to receive their Self Realisation during the tour. We thank You again and again for Your love, care and attention for each and everyone us throughout the tour. Thank You for allowing us to feel and see Your presence through the beautiful spirits of our brothers and sisters. Thank You for allowing us to make new connections with our Indian family, memories which will sustain us for the rest of our lives.
Dearest Shri Mataji, we thank You again and again and again
for allowing over 4,000 seekers to receive their Self Realisation during the tour.
With love,

Sawan Multicultural Spring Festival - Melbourne
Dear Friends
This year we received an invitation to take part in yet another cultural event in Melbourne: the Sawan Multicultural Spring Festival in Clayton. Our music group was asked to start the artistic event on the stage which featured performances from different cultural backgrounds and we had the opportunity to sing several bhajans.
We also gave a presentation of Sahaja Yoga with Realisation on the stage and all the people in the attendance joined the experience. We had a desk at the entry where we could explain Sahaja Yoga and it was very nice to have such a positive interaction, going through the Realisation Experience and even exchanging vibrations with the seekers. It was a blessing to spend the day with our brothers and sisters while having the attention on the newcomers.
Kind regards,
Please see the following Youtube videos uploaded by the organizers:

News from the 2018 India Tour
Preparing for the Tour ahead
The 2018 India Tour began at the International Sahaja Public School (ISPS) in Dharamshala, taking us all instantly to Sahasrara. Shri Mataji visited the school in 1985, and morning meditation was held in the cottage where She stayed. The vibrations were strong and soothing, and it felt like She was preparing us for the tour ahead.
HH Shri Mataji Nirmala Devi’s Room at ISPS
Christmas Puja was held on Sunday and it was pure joy to be present with the children, families and staff, to worship Shri Mataji in Her form of Shri Jesus Mary.
ISPS – the first public program
That evening, the first public program of the tour was held at ISPS with about 50 new seekers present. Families and staff of the school were also in the audience. Sadhana Didi was present and spontaneously offered to do the Hindi translation, including the Self Realisation. Vibrations were strong and continued to build. The concert ended with joyful dancing to Quawali music lead by Lyndon.
Our next public program was held in Pathankot. We stayed at a place where Shri Mataji had visited in 1985 and we walked the same path She had walked then. Pathankot is a small collective of about 20 yogis but yogis had travelled from Ludiana and Mumbai to greet us. As we arrived a gentle, cleansing rain fell. That evening the rain continued but did not keep away the seekers from the program. About 400 were in the audience. Again joy and love filled everyone’s hearts and new connections were made. The next morning we had a Shri Ganesha Puja in the room Shri Mataji stayed when she visited Afterwards, one of the local yogis mentioned that Shri Mataji had called Pathankot “the land of innocence.”

Invitation to Australia’s 2019 Events
After breakfast we said our goodbyes to our Pathankot family after making a donation to the collective for Sahaj projects and inviting them to Easter Seminar, Meditate Australia Tours and Shri MahaGanesha Puja. We also left them with two banners of Shri Mataji and some Aboriginal clapping sticks from the Uluru area.
2018 India Tour – Reflections of Jalindhar, Chandigarh & Ambala
Jalindhar – program filled to capacity
After Pathankot we travelled by bus to Jalindhar about 3 hours away. Once more we were given a warm welcome by the collective. The program that night had a hall filled to capacity. The self-realisation was given by Shri Mataji and this was followed by Om Gam Ganapataye. The meditation was pure deep silence. Dancing continued for hours and included the local collective playing dholak so that we could all dance together for The Goddess. The next morning we meditated together. It felt that Shri Mataji was pleased that such strong connections are being made between collectives so far apart.  READ MORE
Reflections of ISPS, Pathankot & Jalandhar
Shri Mataji’s presence is always felt especially here at ISPS
As Yogis we long for the river that’s moving to the flow of Our Mother’s love to carry us beyond the cares of life. The water of life, we are led to the water, the sweet waters. The water of life. We long for that river to lift us up to feel Shri Mataji’s strength to carry us home. To feel Shri Mataji’s love overtake us all.  From the mountain to the valley, from the desert to the raging sea and in the silence of the Himalayas, Shri Mataji’s presence is always felt especially here at ISPS.   READ MORE

Shri MahaGanesha Puja 2019 and the Australian Collective
You may have received a message a couple of weeks ago from the Central Committee (CC), forwarded by the World Foundation. The World Foundation have publicly apologised for distributing this email, which other Country Coordinators have stated was not auspicious. The CC as yet have not apologised for sending this email and as such we, your Australian Councillors, feel we should briefly clarify the facts for all.
The email message from the CC referred to recollections of Her Holiness Shri Mataji’s advice regarding the upcoming Shri MahaGanesha Puja being held at Uluru in Central Australia next year and also contained unverified statements about the 800-850 member Australian Collective.
Briefly the facts are:
Shri MahaGanesha Puja, Uluru 2019
·      HH Shri Mataji postponed the Puja in 1988.  “So the Maha puja has been postponed in a way. I’ll see to it that we do it” The Role of Women,
19 June 1988, Shudy Camps, UK
HH Shri Mataji also stated in Her Talk at Shri Ganesha Puja 1992 in Australia that “This is a place where I  say resides MahaGanesha.”

·      HH Shri Mataji requested that the Maha Puja be hosted at Uluru as a significant event in the realisation and awakening of specific aspects
and qualities of the Mooladhara.  She requested a map indicating that with the  manifestation of Shri Maha Ganesha at Uluru, the Divine
aspect of God as Shri Adi Shakti and God as Shri Sadashiva would also be present. She then informed us which of the sacred sites were
represented by these Divine aspects to be included in the Puja.
·      Yogis including HH Shri Mataji’s family members requested permission to visit Uluru in 2007.  Her Holiness gave Her blessings.  Yogis have
been visiting Uluru from 2007 until 2018 as a pilgrimage with no issues and the occasions are always of deep significance and spiritual gravity.
·        The vibrations clearly indicate that the Puja should be held in 2019 and as such the Puja is going to be held 6 - 9 September 2019.
False, unsubstantiated claims of division in the Australian Collective
·     The Australian Collective is not a split Collective. As in most collectives in the world some have chosen to leave. However the numbers are very small compared to the 800 - 850 Yogis within the Australian Collective. The CC appear to have accepted claims of a split from those no longer part of the Australian Collective without appropriately verifying such claims with the Australian Council.
·     The Australian Collective numbers 800 - 850 Yogis and is growing.  The Collective holds 94 weekly public programs with a Councillor structure chosen on vibrations and Trustees acting to ensure the professional management of our assets.  These arrangements were created and put in place specifically by HH Shri Mataji.
·      Australia has established its financial, and governance credentials to a high level such that it was able to achieve government registration as a Charitable organisation in Australia in 2013. The level of financial governance and independent auditing has resulted in the Australian Taxation Office hosting Life Eternal Trust Australian accounts on their website. The Taxation Office will only do this for accounts they have verified as accurate and compliant with governance standards.
·      HH Shri Mataji gave clear advice about having nothing to do with people who do not attend the Collective, 'murmuring souls' and break away groups.  Please see the following Talk of HH Shri Mataji -  CLICK HERE However, the CC has chosen to listen to and support  those who are no longer part of the Collective and also publicly criticise the Australian Collective, without appropriately verifying these unsubstantiated claims.
A few more points relevant to these matters
Influence of Social Media and Rumours
Rumours spread on Social Media by Yogis (in contradiction to HH Shri Mataji's advice) contain freely made up criticisms and accusations of many things and persons in Sahaja Yoga with a high proportion involving criticism of Australia.    These activities by people who describe themselves as Sahaja Yogis clearly reflect a disconnection and those involved need to be aware of the damage they are doing to themselves and the disturbances they create in others.
Overwhelming support
We thank the numerous Yogis around the world continuing to inquire about attending the upcoming National Shri MahaGanesha Puja, and the Country Coordinators who have expressed their concern about the CC message and confirmed their love and support and encouragement for the Australian Collective and the Puja. During discussion about the CC email message at the Shri Ganesha Puja Country Coordinators meeting in Cabella, Country Coordinators stated that the CC message was not auspicious  but as yet the CC have not provided an apology to the Australian and World Collective.
Carrying on as planned
We are continuing with plans for the National Shri Maha Ganesha Puja at Uluru in September 2019 and again invite everyone from around the world to join us for this joyous event. Our invitation can be found here:  CLICK HERE   As we are our own gurus we respectfully request our brothers and sisters around the world to individually seek HH Shri Mataji’s indications through the vibrations to see if they should attend the Puja or not.
Further advice from HH Shri Mataji about collectivity:
"Relationship should be of perfection..."
 “So this is the best way to judge, that whether anybody drops out or not, anybody comes in or not, on your own how far are you going to benefit, what is your interest in this matter and this is how you should judge yourself. To judge yourself, as I have told you, relationship should be of perfection that you should perfect yourself because if you have to offer something to God, if you have get something connected to God that instrument should be perfect.
So the attitude towards yourself has to be of perfection. But on the contrary the imperfections of others are more attractive. You run to that person because he’s imperfect. You start thinking [the same], you must help, how can you get it out. That’s not your job. That’s my look-out. I can work it out Myself. You don’t have to run after a person who has been discarded just now by Sahaja Yoga. I’m looking after him much more than I’m looking after you.
So you don’t have to bother but you keep to the collectivity, you keep to the sangha, you keep with the collective personality because he will be lost with that person as he is lost.”
HH Shri Mataji, 12 July 1982, Talk After Bhoomi Puja before Havan, Derby, United Kingdom
"Don’t talk ill of each other..."
 “Also as I told you, that don’t talk ill of each other on the back. It’s a very bad habit. That’s how you’ll catch in bhoots and you’ll become extremely negative. Any such thought comes into your mind, just stop it. It’s a very nasty disease, you see, that spreads, so it makes you – I mean, it’s so sickening, you know.
When I hear somebody who talks ill of someone its extremely sickening, because it’s not being human. ....  In Sahaja Yoga it doesn’t behove. No Sahaja yogis should talk ill about each other. Nor should they discuss each other. Never! Now somebody does that, you must immediately say “Now please, I don’t want to hear.  Please don’t tell me. This is not a very good thing.”
The politicians do like that, but not Sahaja yogis. Sahaja yogis should not do because, you see, you are great people, you are yogis.”

HH Shri Mataji Nirmala Devi - Shri  Ganesha Puja, 9 February 1992, Australia
With hearts full of love for our beautiful Sahaja family,
Lyn and Andre on behalf of your Australian Councillors
Jai Shri Mataji!
Dear Brothers and Sisters,
With lots of love and joy flowing in our hearts, we invite all the Sahaja Yogis of the world to attend the
International Diwali Puja being held in Loutraki,  Greece, 9-11 November.
On this auspicious occasion we will worship our Divine Mother Her Holiness Shree Mataji Nirmala Devi
in Nirakara form, who has created the principal of Shree Mahalaxmi and incarnated as Shree Athéna
on this ancient and sacred land of Greece.
Through this puja, we surrender the collective Nabhi Chakra at the lotus feet of Shree Adi Shakti
and sincerely pray in our heart asking Her to bring Sahasrara in Greece.
We humbly request your presence and be part of this puja to experience a great flow of vibrations,
a ubiquitous pomp, an unbridled joy.
We are all involved in something much bigger than ourselves to become one with Divine force in Sahasrara.
Our Koti Koti Pranam at the lotus feet of Shree Mataji Nirmala Devi
