National Navaratri Puja, Perth 2016 - Report

 

 

From the moment we set foot on Gidgegannup we could feel Mother's loving attention flowing freely through the Western Australian Collective. Throughout the weekend the WA yogis worked effortlessly and from the centre to make sure our every need was met.

 

There were morning meditations, havans, small pujas, a beautiful bushwalk in the rain and a continuous supply of delicious food. There was also time to get to know each other and make strong connections that will last forever.

 

We all enjoyed the public program held at the Perth Town Hall on Friday night, a venue our Divine Mother had given public programs at! Over 80 seekers were lucky to attend and it was great to see the whole collective involved in either set up, performing bhajans or the preparation of yummy cakes.

 

Everyone felt the change after setting up HH Shri Mataji’s room in the Ashram. Most of items used by HH Shri Mataji during previous visits were beautifully arranged in the room.  Whole collective is enjoying the Mothers loving presence.

 

After arrival, we went to Her room and offered a small offering and prayed to HH Shri Mataji to establish Shri Ganesha in WA so everyone purifies and negativity gets removed. After the prayer everyone felt amazingly joyous vibrations.

 

 

The Navaratri Puja itself was deep and made such changes within us that we will never be the same again. It was also auspiciously marked by being the first Puja where Mother was invited from Her Room in the Ashram.

 

After the puja we sat in the meditation room and sung, danced, laughed and talked. It felt that we were truly one family enjoying ourselves under our Mother's loving gaze.

 

Attending these National Pujas is so important. We can learn from each other, increase our collectivity and see unique strengths in our brothers and sisters which we can then bring back to our own collective.

 

This is the first year that the WA collective has had so many visitors for National Navaratri Puja. HH Shri Mataji has given such a beautiful country property Gidgegannup for us so we request everyone try and attend future puja’s in big number.

Navaratri in Balmoral and Mother's Temple Burwood

 

Dear family,

 

Jai Shri Mataji!

 

Navaratri this year was a unique experience .

 

Mother’s Property at Balmoral

 

This was a very unique NSW collective Puja offered on first day of Navaratri.   HH Shri Mataji  was worshipped as Shri Ganesha at the first day of Navaratri adoration .

 

From the moment preparations began for Puja at Balmoral, we could feel Mother’s eternal attention intensify. The backdrop was majestic with a large image of Shri Mataji as Shri Durga. The nature was also preparing for Navaratri celebrations. Very strong  winds were blowing at Balmoral but all winds stopped during the Havan.

 

The vibrations of the puja were strong and everyone enjoyed a long deep silent meditation afterwards. Some commented that it was the best meditation that they have had, but this was just the start.

 

Mother’s Temple at Burwood

 

Each morning at 5:00 am the collective came to enjoy a deep silent meditation. In that silence we all experienced the power of Our Mother

cleansing us with Her Divine Love. We all enjoyed this depth of silence for well over an hour and then one by one we met in the kitchen where we ate breakfast drank chai and just enjoyed each other as a true family.

 

Every evening we gathered and offered small puja with offerings of fruits, dry fruits, Oti and sweets. Prayers and praises were recited to please the Almighty  Goddess.  Each evening was so nourishing it was hard to come out of Meditative state.

 

The vibrations intensified with each night.

 

Havans were extremely beneficial and assisted  yogis to clear their subtle systems as well as some worldly issues. Most of the Havans were focussed on clearing of one self, collective catches and clearing of vibrations.

 

Amazingly, at  one of the Havans everyone felt the same  collective catches and clearings.

 

Some Yoginis prepared and offered breakfast and meals to HH Shri Mataji.

 

Most of the evenings varieties of food was served to the collective.

 

Collective attended Victory celebrations ( Dussehra) on Tuesday evening.

Dussehra means removal of the 10 bad qualities within you.

 

Havan was focussed on removing 10 bad qualities within oneself and within the Collective.

(Ego, Anger, lust,  Cruelty, injustice,  Greed, Over pride,  Jealously and Hatred, attachment and selfishness) then Ravana was offered to Havan.

Ravana’s ten head symbolises these 10 bad qualities.

 

After the Havan there was a small Puja and offerings offered to the Goddess Nirmala. HH Shri Mataji poured Her love and vibrations to all.

 

No one wanted to leave Burwood.

 

Jai Shri Mataji!

 

 

Here are some comments from our family about this most powerful time that we shared.

 

Nothing was on a mental level. It was peace.

 

Vibrationally I could feel Mother clearing every chakra.

 

During Navaratri I felt clearly what was happening on the chakras.

 

I felt my connection with Shri Mataji strongly.

 

There was lots of love and joy this year. All our hearts were open and people took care of each other. We were loving each other with all the joy.

 

I felt it was the best Navaratri. I felt Mother in Her physical form.

 

It was good being in the ashram and seeing all the protocols; seeing the proper way to do puja in Mother’s room; how to do the havan and protocols.

 

I really felt the presence of Mother in my heart. I feel a complete difference since the start of Navaratri.

 

It was very powerful. I felt the bhoots leave. I have experienced a full scope of improvements.

 

I felt the power of the collective with the big attendance at both the puja at Balmoral and the one at Mother’s temple on Victory night. We were all one singing Jogewa at the havan.

 

We witnessed Ravana disappearing in an instant when it was burnt.

 

I noticed a shift in the collective. More people are coming together.

 

We thank our Mother for this great blessing

 

Jai Shri Mataji!

 

 

A Miracle-September 2016

 

 

The Prelude: Just before we were about to begin Navaratri Puja, the Adelaide Collective were discussing when to visit our Aunty Laece in hospital as she had a heart attack.

 

We were also writing a Get Well card to give to her when she walked into the Puja in her sari.

 

We were all shocked and joyous when she recounted the miracle that happened to her: Here is her account of what happened.

 

“On the Thursday 22 September 2016 I suffered pains in the chest and disregarded them as anxiety. On Friday again I got the pains and took some calming medicines and they went away. On Saturday morning I woke up with heavy pain and thought I should go to the hospital.

 

On packing a few things I drove down to the hospital.   The doctors confirmed I had a heart attack and I was transferred to the

Lyell McEwin Hospital where the cardiologist confirmed that it was a heart attack.

 

The locum doctor gave me a form to sign outlining all the possibilities of what could go wrong whilst having the procedures that had been proposed for me (an angiogram & angioplasty). They were horrific.

 

I then asked the cardiologist if there was an alternative and together we decided to try for an ultrasound first.

 

On Tuesday when the medical staff returned Mother had sent me a beautiful Indian heart specialist.   I had read in the Navaratri readings previously that Lalita Devi was the Goddess & Protectress of the heart and MahaDevi the breast.

 

Back in my room and later the same day the cardiologist visited me on her rounds. On seeing the results of the ultrasound handed to her

from an intern doctor she declared that it seemed nothing was wrong…."just an incident”…."you can go home………….."

 

This is just one of the many blessings Our Holy Mother has sent me.

 

Jai Shri Mataji”.

‘Winghamed’

 

Wingham Akoostik Music Festival – October 2016

 

Music of Joy opened the Akoostic Festival in Wingham on both Saturday and Sunday mornings. Akoostik covers a variety of music styles straddling country, folk, rock, blues and… Joy music! This year’s festival featured well known performers like Ash Grunwald and Shannon Noall. There was also a good local representation including some very talented high school students.

 

Both mornings shouted the glory of spring. People camping at the event and those setting up stalls were stirred by the opening strains of the ‘Three Great Mantras’, ‘Purify Our Heart’, ‘From the Mountain to the Sea’ and ‘Guru Ashtakam’. Those from Saturday’s audience who returned on Sunday were treated to a different lineup of songs, except for one of course – the essential ‘Jogawa’.

 

Also, a new phenomenon was witnessed when Sunday’s audience spontaneously formed a giant chakra (Sanskrit for circle or wheel) while dancing to ‘Haida’. In the distance, a sweet group of young children could be seen dancing and playing games to the music while others sat in the sun, or under trees, bathing in the joy. What a way, to start the day!

 

On Saturday afternoon the band travelled to the village of Elands and on to the spectacular Ellenborough Falls, one of the longest uninterrupted waterfalls in the southern hemisphere and second only to the Angel Falls in Venezuela – at 807 meters, the longest uninterrupted waterfall in the world. This was followed by lunch at the old Glenwarrin School House and then a very chilled-out dip in the mountain waters of The Rapids.

 

After Sunday morning’s performance at the festival, Music of Joy recorded a one hour program for community radio station 2BOB (FM 104.7) to be aired and streamed on Friday 21st October at 7pm and again on Sunday 23rd October at 3pm. The excitement in the studio was at fever pitch as the crew worked like never before to bring the 16 musicians and singers to air.

 

On Sunday afternoon the band took refreshments on the banks of the mighty Manning River, which the local Biripi people revere as The Mother. Then it was time for brothers and sisters to part as the Sydney contingent took to the Pacific Highway for the journey south – no doubt they had been well and truly ‘Winghamed’!

You have to keep your maryadas

So we have to create out of Sahaja Yogis great politicians.

 

(Extract from Shri Rama's Birthday Puja, Chelsham Road, 2nd April, 1982)

 

"You have to keep your maryadas. That is part of our training.  Say, for example, an airplane is there and it is not bound by any maryadas, see it is not bound.   When it goes in the air it will all finish. All our ideas of freedom are to be bound by maryadas. If the freedom has no maryada it is abandonment. It is nonsense. It is not going to help us.

 

So we have to create out of Sahaja Yogis great politicians. It has been predicted that if Sahaja Yoga does not spread, then third world war is inevitable.   People will suffer a lot with third world war. It is possible to avoid it if people take to Sahaja Yoga in a big number.

 

But if they do not, there will be a third world war and the effects of that will harm people so much that ultimately it is the sahaja yogis who will be called for a conference and not the diplomats.

 

The sahaja yogis will be consulted, and they will decide what is to be done for the world, and they will become the rulers of tomorrow's world.

 

So we must have full idea how to be rulers like Shri Rama. "

Weekend at Woolgoolga - Queensland

 

Many blessings were enjoyed this weekend at Woolgoolga. It was one of the most successful in the giving of self-realisation we have seen over the past couple of years. It was truly amazing. The focus on the tent and the preparation of the tent really helped to lift the vibrations. Many thanks to Annaradha for her creative, artistic flair with the saris.

 

It began very slowly with people walking by and not even looking at our stall. Then quiet a few of the yogis sat and began to meditate in the tent and whoosh up with the vibrations and along came the seekers! It was amazing to see how when we collectively put our attention together as one what can happen.

 

After that we had groups of people getting their self-realisation, one group would finish then the next group would take their place in the tent, groups of about 7 people at a time. The other thing we did was to put up a whiteboard with guided meditation times every 1/2 hour. The groups automatically worked in with the times on the board, funny that! So we could say to people who couldn't stop at that point come back in ten minutes and we'll be starting the next session. By having groups of people getting their self-realisation it attracted other people walking by who would stop, watch and that gave us a chance to engage with them and give them information.

 

Another thing we found that worked really well was to have the www.freemeditation.com.au site (Please CLICK HERE) up on our phones and we could walk people through the pages and show them how to get talks, music and information. The response from people was very positive.

 

We couldn't tell you the amount of people who took cards and stopped to chat it was absolutely endless. We would say that we gave around 50 -60 people their self-realisation. We were really blessed with a beautiful day weather wise but beyond that were were blessed with being able to give Shri Mataji's message to so many people and their self-realisation.

 

Thank you Shri Mataji for a wonderful, joyful weekend with our hearts full of Your love.

A dedication to the Basil Plant

 

A stone plaque at the Amber Palace in Jaipur India beautifully expresses the appreciation for the Basil plant.

 

The wording:

 

TULSI

 

Tulsi, or the Holy Basil, has special significance in the Daily Life.  Both religious and lay, of many Indians.

 

The Tulsi plant is commonly worshipped in India.

 

The two Surviving “Devaras” (Tulsi Plant Holdrers)  one of them being bere before you.

 

In the Seraglio portion of the Amber Palace would have been used in an age old ritual.

 

The Queens residing in the Royal Apartments would have after bathing offered water,

standing beside them, first to the Sun God and thereafter to the Tulsi Plants in them.

 

They would also lit a lamp here in the evening after sun-set.  Singing hyms in praise of the plant.

 

Medicinally, Tulsi leaves are used as a tonic, antiseptic and digestive.

 

Its oil rubbed on the temple relieves headache and also used to ease childbirth.

 

The fragrance of its flowers keeps flies away.

 

 

   

 

 

 

Cabella, a living valley

 

Cabella is our sweet home we cherish so much in our hearts, but we also know Cabella is a laboratory for the entire globe. Whatever we start doing here is important, and it has impact upon the rest of the world. Our spiritual work is not disconnected from the rest of our life, all is integrated. Should we build something, set up a big project, give a hand to someone, offer a flower at Mother's Feet, everything done wholeheartedly is a puja to the Divine. May Cabella be a land where nature, arts, spirituality come together in perfect harmony, reflecting our  Mother's vision.

 

A project of developing a sustainable community in Cabella has started this year. Since 2009, work has been done in recycling and waste management, in shopping organic and local products. A group of dedicated yogis from many countries (UK, China, Hungary, Belgium, Italy, India, Finland) worked together this summer and created a beautiful project.


The general goal is to create a Sahaj community that interact with the local community on matters like food, energy, economy, agriculture and could eventually become a model for the world.


We are doing also the experience of Sahaj Krishi which is massively introduced in rural areas in India. The University of Torino is very interested to test the results of our experiments in agriculture.

 

 

 

The World Festival

 

On the 18th of August we celebrated the Shri Vishnumaya Puja. A Rakhi was humbly offered to our Mother.

On the 28th of August we celebrated Shri Krishna Puja, one of the biggest ever, with more than 2000 participants.

A beautiful Raksha Bandhan ceremony took place and on this auspicious occasion the sisters could offer their dear brothers the bracelet symbolizing the pure relationships uniting them.

After Shri Krishna Puja we had a joyful festival with many events, music, lovely dances full of vibrations... And hey! we even had the first edition of Sahaja Yoga has talent, where we discovered such beautiful new talents!

After long years of absence, the famous Mukhi Ram and Sandeep Dalal Brothers music group again brought effervescence in our evenings in Cabella.

 

Shri Krishna Puja

 

After two big pujas, we can finally say it: the new mulino kitchen is functional, it has already given its proof! The new equipment is very efficient, and it facilitated the task of the kitchen team, which has done a great work this summer, having succeeded in feeding thousands of yogis! This is the first step of a long process in improving the mulino area, but we have set up good basis this year for further development.

 

Thank you, Mother, as You are really the Doer...

 

 

 

Using your vibrations

 

“All this thinking and all kinds of decision-making, and having a big conference for decisions and all that - not needed. In day-to-day life also you have to be like that. Also in every political life, economic life or any other life you have to lead, you have to be very spontaneous.

 

 

How do you become spontaneous? What quality you have got? What is the weapon you have got, to know what decision to take? Do you know? You have got vibrations, you have the feel of the vibrations, and you know what vibrations are. You know what vibrations tell you, and convey and communicate to you. They speak to you. So through your vibrations you should know in a second what should you do.

 

 

For example now, somebody told Me that "Mother, when I came to Cabella I felt tremendous vibrations." It's a fact. But how many of you feel that way? Because your sensitivity is not yet developed. You have to be sensitive about your vibrations. You should know looking at anyone, sitting next to anyone, even shaking hands with anyone, you should know what sort of vibrations that person has. This kind of sensitivity if you develop, then you will definitely take a very spontaneous decision.”

Sahaja Yoga Collective in Canberra celebrates International Youth Day – Sunday 7 August 2016

 

The celebration of the International Youth Day on Sunday morning 7 August 2016 at Mother’s Ashram in Canberra proved to be very successful in more ways than one with 3 new people coming to our Centre for the first time and two young people who have attended before following up from previous workshops.  Most encouraging to see were the multiple number of breakthrough firsts (4 in all) occurring at our advertised workshop.

 

The previous evening we had spontaneously decided on the structure and who would be the key note presenters keeping to the theme of youth both young in heart and appearance.  A first as our normal approach is to plan and organise a few days ahead of the event.

Overall the workshop went very well with 3 youthful looking presenters running the entire program.

 

A Yuva Shakti volunteer introduced the workshop giving an overview of his experience in Sahaja Yoga, a little bit of information about the subtle body and the benefits of meditation thru daily practise.  Not only did Purnanand give his presentation but also participated (on guitar) in the collective bhajans group later on.  Another first for the Canberra Collective for the yuvas at an advertised workshop.

 

A relatively young married couple (for whom time has stood still in terms of youthful appearance) presented the next few sessions of the workshop. Young Phillip County gave a more detailed presentation about the chakras and subtle body followed by self realisation and a short meditation.

 

We then watched about a 20 minute segment of a talk given by Shri Mataji in March 1990 at the University of Sydney during which Mother drew our attention to the differences in lifestyle between India (which from ancient times has a climate supportive of an outdoor meditative lifestyle) unlike some western countries where the nature is somewhat more challenging.

 

This was followed by a footsoak guided by Mr County’s wife who took us in to the meditative state thru clearing the left and right side channels and cooling the right nabi (liver).  Having balanced our left and right sides and cooled down our livers we then gently guided to hold both hands above our laps towards Shri Mataji’s photo to see how much clearer we had become.

 

The fourth part of the session was an exchange of vibrations to assist the new attendees become more sensitive and aware to the energy flowing thru their now awakened subtle instrument.   Whilst this was occurring we had our local group Sahaj Rhythms singing some now, very familiar songs, being Pita Nah, The Spirit Never Dies, We are the Children of the Earth Ending with Jago Kundalini Ma.

 

The established yogis then mingled with the new people enjoying convivial conversation about their meditative experience and encouraging them to follow up at our weekly programs around Canberra.    Thank you very much from our hearts Shri Mataji for all these wonderful breakthroughs You gave us in the presentation and expression of Sahaja Yoga that occurred on this auspicious occasion of the celebration of the International Youth Day at your ashram in Canberra.

 

With love from the Canberra Yogis

 

     

 

     

 

 

Cabella Newsletter - July 2016

 

 

 

These weeks between the Guru Puja and the festival Culture of the Spirit are such a blessed period of the year! The river of Love is at its utmost and overflowing here, in the Yogiland of Cabella, where one is drenched into the vibrations and the joy.

Festival

Culture of the Spirit

 

30 and 31st of July: two intense days of joy, with music and dance everywhere. We are happy that nearly 100 new comers obtained their Self Realization, as this is one of the main purposes of this event.

 

We will only mention a few of the very great musicians present here: Anandita Basu and her deep sufi devotional songs, Rachelle Jeanty on beautiful jazzy rhythms, the bansuri master Shaktidhar, the amazing ghatam (anfora) player Giridhar Udupa, Tanya Wells singing sweet ghazals, the well-known Indialucia group playing flamenco fusion and Indian music and of course the divine sounds of the Divine Symphony Orchestra.

 

Great and beautiful dancers also: Kinga Malec the Kathak, Valeria Vespaziani the Bharatanatyam, Siddhi Basale the Kuchipudi. Filled with wonder, we watched Shaina's spectacular performance of Poi fire and we all danced the Bhangra at the end of the festival! Yes, it is all about the flow, being in the flow, dance within the flow...

One thing is for sure: every yogi(ni) should at least once in life come to the Art Academy and attend some classes. The enthusiastic and great-hearted members of the theatre company TEV (True Eternal Values) again this year offered us  the opportunity to discover or to develop a new talent.

For nearly two weeks, from the 19th until the 28th of July, we could attend a very wide range of courses: different kinds of music, dance, theatre, painting, knitting, breathing technics, ayurvedic massage, aikido, photography, design and so on and so forth, we definitely don't have enough space here to enumerate them all. It is not only about the content of the classes, the generosity and the competence of the volunteering teachers, but also about the subtle interaction between all those present here. There is such a joy, such richness in the exchanges, such beauty in the spontaneous encounters that you may have! But of course, one should experience it to really understand its value.

 

 

 

 

Guru Puja

 

On the 17th of July, over 2 000 yogis and yoginis from the four corners of the world celebrated a majestic Shri Guru Puja in our newly transformed temple (originally called the hangar). Two days later we also enjoyed a beautiful Shri Guru Purnima Puja with less participants but with strong vibrations.

 

 

Wellness Camp

 

The Wellness Camp continued during the summer until the Guru puja. Yogi(ni)s from different countries in search of an oasis of peace found here a place where they can fortify themselves so that when they go back to their homelands they can spread this energy of love and benefit to all around them. For many of them it was not the first time they were coming. Nor the last...

Wollongong University program

 

Jai Shri Mataji!

 

Through Shri Mataji's blessings, a large group of Sahaja Yogis attended the welcoming night for international students at the University of Wollongong on the 8th August.

 

Having appeared at the university as Music of Joy several months ago, we were invited back to present music and meditation for an event attended by 400 international students.

 

The audience was extremely responsive and appreciative, dancing joyfully and enthusiastically and then with equal attentiveness, sitting cross-legged on the bare floor to receive self-realisation and experience a deep meditation.

 

A number of students took the details of the coming Hornsby program, so we hope to see them again.

 

We look forward to future programs of the same kind at universities and elsewhere.

 

With love from the yogis involved in the Music of Joy events.

New NSW State Councillors

 

Dear Family,

 

Jai Shri Mataji!

 

We are happy to advise that the attached letter containing the names of the new State Councillors for New South Wales was recently offered at Shri Mataji's Divine Lotus Feet at Nirmal Dham.

 

The letter was offered seeking Her Divine blessings for the new Councillors and the wider Australian Collective.

 

The new Councillors (Jenny Zappavigna, Lisa Barron, Minakshi Pearce and Andrii Grybovskyi), selected on vibrations, will now take up their positions with a 'hand over' period now commencing. It's important that we sought Shri Mataji's blessings before advising everyone.

 

We thank all those offering their names for consideration and those assisting with the process, including all the Yogis at the National Guru Puja Seminar at Wamuran.

 

We sincerely thank Michelle, Kabir and Andrew for their heartfelt and dedicated service to Shri Mataji and to the NSW  Collective for 3 years.

 

We thank Shri Mataji again and again for guiding us through the vibrational selection and indicating Her choices. We ask that all Yogis support the new Councillors as they take up their new roles.

 

Love

 

Lyn and Andre on behalf of your Australian Councillors

 

 

 

 

Wamuran Redevelopment Project

 

Dear Yogis,

 

Jai Shri Mataji!

 

A great weekend of unending warmth was enjoyed with the celebration of the 18th National Guru Puja at Wamuran. It was a weekend that was all Sahaja, hosted by the great open heart of the Queensland collective, of which we are all so thankful!

 

To the delight of all present, the Wamuran Redevelopment Project was launched on Saturday night, the first phase being a redevelopment of the Puja Hall. A second phase will be to extend the existing house as the Brisbane collective grows.

 

Twenty years ago, when leaving Brisbane following a Tour, Shri Mataji gave a talk at the Airport (extract attached). The Brisbane Airport Talk was only recently uncovered and translated from Marathi with Shri Mataji’s clear instructions.  Shri Mataji asked us to work on the Puja Hall to remove and replace the tin with brick.

After much discussion and good will over the weekend, as a collective we decided that we would carry forward with Our Divine Mother’s original request and complete this long requested task.  Shri Mataji spent a night in the Puja Hall and She spoke to the Yogis on the verandah (a much loved talk from 1994).

 

The Puja Hall will need to be demolished and rebuilt (following the existing footprint) to make the changes directed by Shri Mataji. This rebuilding will address the structural implications, and also accommodate the spatial needs, the functional requirements, and the aesthetic aspirations of the collective. The rebuilt Puja Hall will also be integrated with the existing house.

 

The launch of the National Wamuran Redevelopment appeal on Saturday night was a truly magnificent expression of Sahaj love.  $14,000 was raised in donations, with representatives from each state in attendance opening their hearts and donating generously. Thanks to the winner of the Cabella Raffle who then donated the Prize back to the Redevelopment appeal!

 

We are so blessed with the number of country and city properties which we all enjoy. Whilst we need to look after these special places and maintain them and ensure they are in good condition for Yogis to enjoy Shri Mataji's  vibrations and the Collectivity now and into the future we are also going to ensure we comply with all legal and health and safety standards.   We are beginning this work at Mother's Wamuran property in Queensland and intend lookingat all our properties to ensure we comply with health and safety requirements as well as attending to any identified maintenance works.

 

This is the first major National Collective Project since the Burwood Project in 2007. As the National collective supported the rebuild of Burwood at its time of need, it is the right time for the Australian collective to support this great Project, setting Wamuran up for the future.  The Queensland Collective is growing and this is a fantastic opportunity to cater for a growing collective.

 

The bank details for the Wamuran Building fund account for those wishing to make a donation are included. We are asking that yogis use the description/reference '150' on any electronic transfers for accounts that do not allow words for the reference.

If they can use words, then 'Wam Bldg' would be fine.

"We are working out now ashrams and projects and things and all that. But when it comes to money, Sahaja yogis think, "Oh no, that's not my job. Only I can send my child there. Mother must look after all the children, Mother must do this, Mother must find out this, She must provide for this." Everything She should do and what about me? I'll just put money in the banks, Swiss banks specially." So one has to decide, "How much of my money I'm giving for the work of Sahaja Yoga?"

 

I don't want your money. No money is to be given for Sahaja Yoga in the sense for your realization. But if you have to have a hall, if you have to have a program, if you have to have an ashram, anything is to be done, you need money. And for that anybody asks, "All right give one pound." They won't give. "No, why should I give one pound?" And there's a national competition in that, national competition. It shows that still you have not touched your depth. If you touch your depth, you'll give and you'll enjoy your giving. You must touch your depths. So the enlightenment is yet not complete. Now, I'm saying it to you all individually, you introspect yourself and see for yourself. Let us see, count how much money have I given for Sahaja Yoga work, all of us, individually. Now, you will give Me present, because you think that gives you blessings. That's not the point. Point is: How much money I have kept for Sahaja Yoga out of my income? This is the first question of Lakshmi principle."

Yogic insights into Islam

 

There are a number of legends about the early life of Mohammed, founder of the religion of Islam.

 

It is said that just before Mohammed’s birth his father, Abdulah, dreamt of his unborn son. He saw growing from his child’s back a tree, which climbed upward, and reaching its full height emitted a light that spread around the world.

 

Most Muslims interpret the dream and its imagery symbolically. The tree would of course represent the religion of Islam, supported by Mohammed. The light is the wisdom of his teachings that have truly been globally disseminated.

 

However we also know that the tree in Mohammed’s back could be the ‘tree of life’ and is a common symbol in Middle Eastern and Islamic culture. Carl Jung, after years of studying the language of the unconscious, interpreted the tree of life as one of the universal unconscious’s synonyms for the Kundalini.

 

The Kundalini, said Jung, is a spiritual energy best documented by (but by no means exclusive to) the yogis of India. It should not at all be surprising, should we take an open- minded and closer look at Islam, that as with the other great religions, we find a deeper, more mystical and universal message: that of self realisation and the mechanism by which it occurs–Kundalini awakening. Every culture and religion has had individuals who have achieved a living, spontaneous, direct experience of their religion. A dynamic, suprahuman awareness that went beyond dogma and blind faith. The Gnostics of Christianity, the Yogis of Hinduism, the Fang- Shi of Tao and the Sufis of Islam all achieved these states and each have spoken of experiences that, despite differences of appearance, are strikingly similar in content.

 

Let us then look at Abdula’s dream from a yogic perspective. We can suggest that he actually saw the uniquely powerful Kundalini of his son. The ascent of Mohammed’s Kundalini was not simply of individual importance to Mohammed but had global, even cosmic significance. For the light, the divine energy of Mohammed’s Kundalini, was about to affect a spiritual and cultural revolution in Arabia. Mohammed was the vessel through which the universal unconscious, or ‘divine’, or ‘God’ was about to act.

 

As a child and young man Mohammed showed few signs of his prophetic destiny. He was well known for his moral integrity and good character but it was not until his forties that he became aware of his true purpose. Through a series of transformative experiences Mohammed was prepared for his divine role. These experiences culminated in the amazing Meraj (or ‘Ascent’).

 

The experience of the Meraj, like the rising kundalini that Abdula had seen, would not only revolutionise Mohammed’s awareness but send out shock waves which resonated in the unconscious of all Arabians and later, all the world.

 

Through the Meraj Mohammed realized the need for the establishment of a new culture. He was to establish a creed that went beyond the petty tribal boundaries, blood feuds and violent practices prevalent at the time. To go beyond such ingrained behaviour patterns Mohammed drew upon an awareness of superhuman proportions. He transcended the limitations of the human mind and tapped into the universal intelligence. His vision then became universal: to unite the peoples of Arabia under a system of morality, justice and compassion. A system that would serve as the foundation for one of the greatest civilisations in recorded history.

 

The Meraj gave Mohammed the confidence, wisdom and superhuman energy to attempt such a revolution.

 

In this visionary experience the angel Gabriel escorted Mohammed from his humble quarters to the Dome of the Rock in Jerusalem. There the Buraq, a fantastic steed with the body of a horse, the head of a woman and the wings of a bird, greeted him. She shone with dazzling white brightness and her tremendous strength bore Mohammed up into the cosmos through the various divine dimensions.

 

Gabriel escorted Mohammed on the Buraq through the seven heavens. Each heaven had its own guardian angel and resident prophet who ruled the dimension in accordance with God’s laws. Mohammed bowed to guardian angels who determined his readiness to enter into their heaven, and then Mohammed respectfully paid homage to the reigning prophet. The prophet in turn blessed Mohammed and ushered him on to the next heaven and so on.

 

At the sixth heaven Gabriel brought Mohammed to the verge of the seventh. The archangel said that he himself could go no further. This, the seventh heaven, was the last frontier between god and man and Mohammed was ushered into the place described as the abode of God almighty.

 

Their Mohammed saw a beautiful, radiant tree with wondrous multicolored leaves. It was here that he communed with God and learned of his true purpose.

 

This beautiful and inspiring vision has motivated millions of Muslims for more than a thousand years. Its significance becomes even more universal when we examine it from the perspective of kundalini awakening, using the symbolic language of the universal unconscious.

 

The seven heavens through which Mohammed passed must of course correspond to the seven chakras that exist within the human body. Each chakra, say the yogis, is the abode of a special deity whose character embodies the chakra’s innate spiritual qualities. The human chakra system is a microcosm for the entire Eastern pantheon of gods, goddesses and heavenly beings. The prophets and angels that Mohammed encountered in each heaven could well have been these same inner deities that the yogis personally discovered through intense meditation.

 

The seventh heaven or chakra is the ‘Crown Chakra’ also termed Sahasrara. Yogis have described it as the most important of all the chakras for it represents the ultimate level of mystic awareness.

 

Like all the chakras it has a specific number of petals (in this case more than a thousand)|. Each chakra not only has a specific number of petals but also a specific radiant colour. The sahasrara’s appearance however is said to contain all the colours of the rainbow for it contains within it all the aspects (and hence the colours) of the six other chakras below it.

 

Such ancient yogic descriptions of the sahasrara could logically correspond to the resplendent and multicoloured sidrat which Mohammed encountered in the 7th heaven.

The kundalini is a feminine energy often described as an ‘inner goddess’ or ‘mother energy’. Her ascent from the sacrum, through the chakras located in the spinal cord, is the process of self-realisation. When the kundalini arrives in the crown chakra (sahasrara) the seeker experiences the complete transformation of awareness. One is taken beyond the limits of the human mind into the mystical states of meditation described by sufis and yogis alike.

 

In fact C.G. Jung described the kundalini as the ‘divine feminine ‘or ‘God the mother’. Notably, Mohammed’s vehicle for his own ascent through the heavenly dimensions was the lady-faced, dazzling buraq. The buraq could well be a feminine, Arabic synonym for kundalini.

 

In conclusion Mohammed’s ascent through the seven heavens was, in fact, the ascent of the kundalini, taking his consciousness with it, to divine union with the god almighty.

 

It is no coincidence that the entire Meraj is described to have started and finished in an incredibly short period of time: While sitting in his room Mohammad heard someone grasp the door handle and the sound of the latch clicking was the last thing he heard before Gabriel’s appearance and the duo’s departure on their spiritual journey. Mohammed’s return to mundane experience restarts with the next few clicks of the same latch movement. In other words the entire experience occurred in a sort of ‘no-time’.

 

This is not an unusual proposition since meditation is a state of awareness created by the ascent of the kundalini through the chakras. As it pierces the sixth chakra (‘third eye’ or Agnya) and seventh, it takes the meditator into the state of ‘thoughtless awareness’ (Nirvichara Samadhi) and beyond. This is a simple state where one experiences true mental silence, beyond the normal mental awareness of past/future, cause/effect .

 

The mind, as this editorial column has often discussed before, can only deal with the dimension of past and future, cause and effect, thought and memory. However, the state of meditation begins in the ‘spaces between the thoughts’. This is the numinous dimension where there is no passage of time but only a singular, silent, eternal, thought-free and joyful experience.

 

It was from this dimension of awareness that Mohammed perceived the divine vision of a universal culture and spirituality. Through his meditative vision he learned of humanity’s higher potential thus his mystic perception of the universal spirit and its presence within each of us became the template upon which he sought to fashion a new society whose foundations lay not in issues of common material interest but in the unique awareness of self realization. Mohammed was, in fact, laying the first building blocks for the emergence of a spiritual civilization that may only now come into fruition.

Footscray (Victoria) program a great success

 

The Public Program we had on 25 June in Footscray Community Arts Centre brought about 35 seekers from a variety of suburbs together with the entire Melbourne Collective.

The Realization was felt very deeply by everyone present. Shri Mataji's video, the bhajans performed on stage, the meditation on a raga played live on saxophone, all

kept the energy of pure joy continuously high up above everyone's heads.

 

The beautiful response inspired us not to give up and here we are now having weekly classes in the Footscray Library all during the winter. The Library is centrally placed in one of the most vibrant multicultural suburbs of Melbourne and we really hope the Divine Mother will send all those who seek Her love and solace.

 

The first follow-up has been attended by 10 seekers eager to continue their spiritual journey.

 

Besides the arrival of new seekers, it is remarkable how Her Holiness is growing our Collective as it gets larger and larger with one Yogi family shifting to Melbourne from overseas every second month.

 

We all feel overwhelmed with Shri Mataji's attention working out miracles in front of our eyes.

 

Jai Shri Mataji!

 

Warm regards and love,

Good luck to all taking part in the Vietnam and Singapore Tour

 

Sending our best wishes to everyone about to depart on the Tour of Singapore and Vietnam commencing this Friday 1st July.

 

Congratulations to all the Yogis in the Australian, Vietnamese and Singaporean collectives for all their hard work in support of all the arrangements.

It is really great that 40 Yogis from Australia and Singapore will be on tour!

 

Thanks also to everyone around the country for their fundraising efforts.

On Saturday night at Burwood $1950 was raised from the evening meal including a sum of $950 from a generous Yogi. Then afterwards there were many Yogis offering a $50.00 note saying  “this will now give you the $2,000”. This brings the total raised for the Tour from fundraising activities to a very generous $3825 (including $1600 raised in Perth)!

 

This amount is fantastic and shows the love Australians have for their brothers and sisters in Vietnam and Singapore and how much desire we have for the growth of Sahaja Yoga in Asia.

 

Let us keep the Tour in our attention and humbly ask Shri Mataji, to bless the Tour for the growth of Sahaja Yoga in Vietnam and Singapore.

 

Love

Your Australian Councillors

Sahaja Yoga Canberra celebrates World Yoga Day on two occasions

 

The celebration of the World Yoga Day on Sunday morning 19 June 2016 at Mother’s Ashram in Canberra proved to be very successful with 11 new people coming to our Centre for the first time.  The program went very well with four key note presenters guiding the new people into the experience of self realisation and thoughtless awareness.

 

The session was opened by Surender who gave an overview of the subtle system explaining the mechanics of how the distribution and expression of subtle energy thru the three channels and what true yoga achieves.

 

Following on from that we had Dr David expertly led us all through the self realisation process which had us all in thoughtless awareness as we experienced the inner silence of true yoga and meditation.

 

This was followed by a very beautiful public program talk by Shri Mother given in Brisbane during the early nineties.  After which we had a led meditation designed to establish our attention in thoughtless awareness directing us to the instrument within ourselves.

 

This was led by Dr Himanshu taking us on personal journey thru our subtle system. First putting our attention, thru the use of our hands, on our left heart to acknowledge and confirm that we are nothing but the spirit – the eternal spirit. Then to our left swadisthana to awaken the pure desire within us to become the pure knowledge.

 

Our attention was then directed to our right nabhis and swadisthanas to cool down the centre of thinking and creativity so that the pure knowledge could be given the space to manifest.

 

Before going into thoughtless awareness our attention was taken to our centre heart and the role of the thymus gland. The place where our sense of physical and emotional security is nurtured and immunity to disease is strengthened. Dr Himanshu touched on the importance of the thymus gland – particularly its role in early childhood thru to adolescence and how the kundalini activates its role by giving us a sense of inner security and strengthening our immune system.

 

At each step along the way affirmations were applied to each area of the body that the new people could relate to.  Next we were asked to forgive ourselves and then to connect to the all pervading energy around us.  Into the silence.  The meditation included some Chennai music.

Dr Himanshu explained to us that the health benefits and the feeling of peace and relaxation (which does occur) are just positive by products of self realisation and meditation that gives us the state of  thoughtless awareness.

 

  

 

John Fisher wrapped up the introductory session with a recap of the information provided earlier going into a little bit more detail about the workings of the subtle system subsequent to the experience of self realisation.  Reiterating that the benefits to our health and a sense of well being and relaxation were merely by products to achieving the goal of thoughtless awareness.

 

The new people seemed to be taking it all in and did not have any questions and whilst they had some difficulty deciding on whether they felt anything on their hands or Sahasaras they all agreed they felt more relaxed and peaceful.

 

As always the light refreshments assisted to engage in pleasant conversation with these newly blessed yoga aspirants.  The group comprised a few from India, Mauritius and a few local.  Based on the level of interest shown we are hopeful that some will wish to continue by attending our weekly follow up programs.

 

One lady commented that she had the choice of attending the physical yoga session at Old Parliament House (aka The Museum of Australian Democracy) – which received media coverage on Sunday - or coming to our meditation program.  She chose wisely as did the 10 others who attended our Centre.

 

True yoga being the spiritual connection to the all pervading energy around us and of course to Shri Adi Shakti.

 

On the actual World Yoga day (Tuesday 21 June 2016) thanks to some useful contacts of a local Sahaj Yogi (Kamlesh Singh) Dr Nitin Gupte was able to present Sahaja Yoga in the local community to a group of 55 people (that included 10 children) at the Hindu Temple and Cultural Centre in Florey (a suburb in the north part of Canberra not far from Mother’s Ashram in Scullin).

 

The group were very receptive and interested to follow up with some weekly programs at that venue which we will hope lead to some of them attending our weekly programs at our various venues around Canberra.

 

The Sahaja Yoga meditation session followed on after a physical yoga session that was led by a Mr Vijay Arora a registered senior teacher with Yoga Australia ACT.  He kindly and graciously introduced Dr Nitin who speaking both in English and Hindi to the assembled throng and with the help of the Sahaja Yoga pull up banner and local yogi Kamlesh Singh presented the basics of the spiritual component of true yoga– leading to the process of awakening the kundalini and self realisation as taught by Shri Mataji.

 

The session was completed with taking the assembled group thru the raising of the kundalini and bandhan together with the Om mantra said 3 times taking the attention from Mooladhara to Sahasrara.

After the meditation session quite a few took the green handout Sahaja Yoga leaflets and also showed interest in Dr Manocha’s book Silence the Mind.

 

All in all a very successful couple of days for Sahaja Yoga Meditation in Canberra.  Our endless thanks to Shri Mataji for Her guidance in Her work to redeem the humanity – the work of Our Holy Mother as Shri Adi Shakti.

 

Follow up programs are planned for Wednesdays evenings at the Hindu Temple to gauge the level of interest by the Indian local community.

 

With love from the ACT Collective

 

  

 

 

 

 

Invitation For Shri Mahalaxmi Puja Greece 2016

 

Jai Shri Mataji!

 

Dear Brothers and Sisters,

 

 With great joy derived from the simple and open heart of Sahaja Yogis of Greece, we wish to announce, and to offer a sincere Sahaja welcome and invitation to all brothers and sisters from all over the world to participate in Shri Mahalakshmi Puja offered to our Holy Mother Shri Mataji Nirmala Devi in:

 

Athens, Greece, from October 28th to 30th 2016.

 

Our world is beset with challenges at every level leading to division and separation in the family of humanity. With humility and genuine heartfelt sincerity, we wish to thank each and every Sahaja Yogi who saw the great need for unity and attended Shri Mahalakshmi Puja in Greece last year.

 

Building upon the auspicious offering last year, we wish to gather once again to worship Our Divine Mother in this ancient and sacred land. This is an elevated and deep expression that our Sahaja community seeks to please Our Mother at whose Feet rests the salvation of all humanity.

 

Your presence being the affirmation that as one Sahaj family there is nothing we cannot achieve. The Nirakar presence of Our Mother was felt by all who attended last year as a tremendous flow of vibrations, an all pervading auspiciousness, and an unbridled joy.

 

The feeling that we were taking part in something that is much greater than ourselves, We were one. Instruments of the Divine.Some reflections are shared below:

 There is much still to do. Our societies remain challenged economically, politically, and socially. Our beautiful Mother Earth remains under a threat to the balance in Her climate.

 

The forces working against our evolution are real and ever present. In numbers the Yogis of Greece maybe small, but our measure is not in mere numbers alone, but in the largeness of our heart, in the generosity of our spirit, and in our commitment to extend ourselves to the full measure of our capacity and resources to help reshape this world in the Vision of Our Mother.

 

We have referred to the vibrations and our path is clear to offer Shri Mahalakshmi Puja in 2016. It is the calling of our Sahaja spiritual revolutionary purpose . With deep sincerity and respect, we ask for all your support, help and confirmation.

 

Please join us once more. Together there is nothing we cannot achieve.   We invite all the Yogis to come to Greece so together we may offer our worship, praise, adoration, reverence and love to Shri Mataji in Her form of Shri Mahalakshmi.

 

Like last year, the Puja will be held at a beautiful sea-side resort near Athens.

 

For details regarding the location, registration, cost, please visit the puja web site. Puja cost is similar to last year.

 

For better organization, please register ASAP and definitely before 7 October 2016.

 

We are planning to arrange public program or other realization event before or after puja which will be communicated later.

Impressions of ISPS

 

Jai Shri Mataji!

 

I would like to share with you the Joys , Vibrations and Happiness of Mother’s love myself and some of our sisters and children enjoyed, and we are all really blessed to have the experience of ISPS, Mother’s school.

 

We feel that we are really blessed to be able to send our children to ISPS which is under Mother protection, love and great blessings. We are so lucky.

 

The vibrations of the school are always amazing, I always offer thanks that Shri Adi Shakti for being so very kind to all of us to give us the opportunity of sending our children here, the place of Heaven on Earth. The teachers, Dorm Aunties, Staff are so friendly and show lots of love to the children, we feel our Heart so warm and full of joy.

 

I felt really touched when Assembly started on the first day as a very auspicious and great blessing.  The vibrations were so strong, all the children having such innocenct faces, especially the little one. They are really Angels chosen by God.

 

When the mantra Ya Devi Sarva Bhuteshu was sung the vibrations were so strong tears came to my eyes, Shri Mataji cleared out all the negativities of the children before they entered school and started their first day.

 

We felt all the deities were present at that time, so much auspiciousness for all of us.  After that many prayers were shared between the children, teachers, staff and management which really touched our hearts.

 

We bow down so many time to Adi Shakti for the endless love She showers upon us, and we feel Shri Mataji’s message to all of us that now we should all go back to our countries and do Her work, and She will take care our children there.  All the children then walked inside the school led by Shri Mataji and all the deities.

 

Oh Shri Mataji!  We are so lucky to be the dust at your Lotus Feet and we can communicate with you, under your attention, protection and having so much love from you, we thank you for allowing us to be your instruments to spread Sahaja Yoga.

 

May your fragrance spread all over the world and let Sahaja Yoga be established all over the world as we grow very strong and innocent, with Your love always shining in each of us.

 

We are sure Shri Mataji’s attention will be more and more on our collective and thank Her for arranging for our children to attend ISPS.

 

 

 

 

"You are your Self and you must see yourself as your Self, as your Spirit;

 

and Spirit is a Universal Being, is the innocence, is the virgin within you.

 

This body is a palace and it is the House of God.

 

Within it God kept the Infinite Flame."

"The puja itself was so peaceful, cool and thoughtless.

 

We wondered if you'd like to see a photo, although they don't really do it justice because of the lighting.”

 

 

We all send our loving attention and best wishes to our family in Tasmania.

 

 

Noted physicist says string theory suggests we’re all living in God’s matrix

 

Theoretical physicist, futurist, and bestselling author Michio Kaku has developed a theory that points to the existence of God using string theory.

 

String theory assumes that seemingly specific material particles are actually “vibrational states.”

 

His view about intelligent design has riled the scientific community because Dr. Kaku is considered one of its most respected and prominent

voices. He is the co-creator of string field theory, a branch of string theory.

 

“I have concluded that we are in a world made by rules created by an intelligence,” he stated, according to the Geophilosophical Association of Anthropological and Cultural Studies.

 

Dr. Kaku has continued Einstein’s search for a “Theory of Everything,” seeking to unify the four fundamental forces of the universe—the strong force, the weak force, gravity and electromagnetism.

 

The very purpose of physics, says Kaku is “to find an equation … which will allow us to unify all the forces of nature and allow us to read the mind of God.”

 

Because string theory may provide a unified description of gravity and particle physics, it is considered a candidate for a Theory of Everything.

 

To reach his conclusions about intelligence behind the universe, Dr. Kaku made use of what he calls “primitive semi-radius tachyons.”

 

A tachyon is a particle that always moves faster than light. Many physicists believe such particles cannot exist because they are not consistent with the known laws of physics.

 

 <http://blog.godreports.com/wp-content/uploads/2016/06/Kaku-BG1.jpg>

 

As noted by Einstein and others, special relativity implies that faster-than-light particles, if they existed, could be used to communicate backwards in time.

 

Dr. Kaku used a technology created in 2005 that allowed him to analyze the behavior of matter at the subatomic scale, relying on a primitive tachyon semi-radius.

 

When he observed the behavior of these tachyons in several experiments, he concluded that humans live in a “matrix,” a world governed by laws and principles conceived by an intelligent architect.

 

“I have concluded that we are in a world made by rules created by an intelligence, not unlike a favorite computer game, but of course, more complex and unthinkable,” he said.

 

“By analyzing the behavior of matter at the subatomic scale affected by the semi tachyon pitch radius, what we call chance no longer makes sense, because we are in a universe governed by established rules and not determined by universal chances plane.

 

“This means that, in all probability, there is an unknown force that governs everything,” he noted.

 

However, the unknown force – the first cause that set everything into being and holds everything together is actually a person, Jesus Christ, Christians believe by faith.

 

In Dr. Kaku’s understanding, the Universe is possibly a symphony of vibrating strings emanating from the mind of God, with His cosmic music resonating through an 11-dimensional hyperspace.

 

The Japanese-American physicist states “physicists are the only scientists who can say the word ‘God’ and not blush.”

 

“To me it is clear that we exist in a plan which is governed by rules that were created, shaped by a universal intelligence and not by chance.”

Wingham Akoostik Music Festival – October 2016

 

Music of Joy opened the Akoostic Festival in Wingham on both Saturday and Sunday mornings. Akoostik covers a variety of music styles straddling country, folk, rock, blues and… Joy music! This year’s festival featured well known performers like Ash Grunwald and Shannon Noall. There was also a good local representation including some very talented high school students.

 

Both mornings shouted the glory of spring. People camping at the event and those setting up stalls were stirred by the opening strains of the ‘Three Great Mantras’, ‘Purify Our Heart’, ‘From the Mountain to the Sea’ and ‘Guru Ashtakam’. Those from Saturday’s audience who returned on Sunday were treated to a different lineup of songs, except for one of course – the essential ‘Jogawa’.

 

Also, a new phenomenon was witnessed when Sunday’s audience spontaneously formed a giant chakra (Sanskrit for circle or wheel) while dancing to ‘Haida’. In the distance, a sweet group of young children could be seen dancing and playing games to the music while others sat in the sun, or under trees, bathing in the joy. What a way, to start the day!

 

On Saturday afternoon the band travelled to the village of Elands and on to the spectacular Ellenborough Falls, one of the longest uninterrupted waterfalls in the southern hemisphere and second only to the Angel Falls in Venezuela – at 807 meters, the longest uninterrupted waterfall in the world. This was followed by lunch at the old Glenwarrin School House and then a very chilled-out dip in the mountain waters of The Rapids.

 

After Sunday morning’s performance at the festival, Music of Joy recorded a one hour program for community radio station 2BOB (FM 104.7) to be aired and streamed on Friday 21st October at 7pm and again on Sunday 23rd October at 3pm. The excitement in the studio was at fever pitch as the crew worked like never before to bring the 16 musicians and singers to air.

 

On Sunday afternoon the band took refreshments on the banks of the mighty Manning River, which the local Biripi people revere as The Mother. Then it was time for brothers and sisters to part as the Sydney contingent took to the Pacific Highway for th

You have to keep your maryadas

So we have to create out of Sahaja Yogis great politicians.

 

(Extract from Shri Rama's Birthday Puja, Chelsham Road, 2nd April, 1982)

 

"You have to keep your maryadas. That is part of our training.  Say, for example, an airplane is there and it is not bound by any maryadas, see it is not bound.   When it goes in the air it will all finish. All our ideas of freedom are to be bound by maryadas. If the freedom has no maryada it is abandonment. It is nonsense. It is not going to help us.

 

So we have to create out of Sahaja Yogis great politicians. It has been predicted that if Sahaja Yoga does not spread, then third world war is inevitable.   People will suffer a lot with third world war. It is possible to avoid it if people take to Sahaja Yoga in a big number.

 

But if they do not, there will be a third world war and the effects of that will harm people so much that ultimately it is the sahaja yogis who will be called for a conference and not the diplomats.

 

The sahaja yogis will be consulted, and they will decide what is to be done for the world, and they will become the rulers of tomorrow's world.

 

So we must have full idea how to be rulers like Shri Rama. "

Weekend at Woolgoolga - Queensland

 

Many blessings were enjoyed this weekend at Woolgoolga. It was one of the most successful in the giving of self-realisation we have seen over the past couple of years. It was truly amazing. The focus on the tent and the preparation of the tent really helped to lift the vibrations. Many thanks to Annaradha for her creative, artistic flair with the saris.

 

It began very slowly with people walking by and not even looking at our stall. Then quiet a few of the yogis sat and began to meditate in the tent and whoosh up with the vibrations and along came the seekers! It was amazing to see how when we collectively put our attention together as one what can happen.

 

After that we had groups of people getting their self-realisation, one group would finish then the next group would take their place in the tent, groups of about 7 people at a time. The other thing we did was to put up a whiteboard with guided meditation times every 1/2 hour. The groups automatically worked in with the times on the board, funny that! So we could say to people who couldn't stop at that point come back in ten minutes and we'll be starting the next session. By having groups of people getting their self-realisation it attracted other people walking by who would stop, watch and that gave us a chance to engage with them and give them information.

 

Another thing we found that worked really well was to have the www.freemeditation.com.au site (Please CLICK HERE) up on our phones and we could walk people through the pages and show them how to get talks, music and information. The response from people was very positive.

 

We couldn't tell you the amount of people who took cards and stopped to chat it was absolutely endless. We would say that we gave around 50 -60 people their self-realisation. We were really blessed with a beautiful day weather wise but beyond that were were blessed with being able to give Shri Mataji's message to so many people and their self-realisation.

 

Thank you Shri Mataji for a wonderful, joyful weekend with our hearts full of Your love.

 

Queensland Councillors
