Jai Shri Mataji!

 

 

 

 
Easter Puja / Marriages / Uluru - 2018
 
Following the uplifting joyous experience of the Balmoral  Easter Puja and Seminar, we thank Her Holiness and the NSW Collective and Councillors for coordinating the preparations of the property and the inspired National Collective for providing such an exceptional event.   The beautiful example of Yogis working so well together made this event so enjoyable for our brothers and sisters from interstate and around the World who assisted, with everyone being drenched in the greatest blessings of Divine Vibrations from Her Holiness Shri Mataji.
 
  We extend our special thanks to Dr Bandekar and Dr Nayana for hosting the Wellness Seminar.  For those who participated it was such a period of growth and set the foundation and vibrations for the Easter Seminar.
 
We also thank our Yuva Shakti, from both NSW and all over Australia, who worked so well with their attention to create a wonderful marriage pendal and performed such creative offerings of song and dance to the Goddess through the Seminar.
 
The Shri Maha Mary Jesus Puja Seminar was shared with so many Yogis from around the world. Thanks go to these Yogis who acted on their strong desire to attend the Seminar and so generously helped wherever they were needed. The way you lovingly integrated with the Seminar arrangements is a credit to you all.
 
The Sahaja Yoga Marriages at Balmoral was an event which will be remembered forever, and culminated in the offering of the sacred Sahaja Marriage protocols.
 
During the Sahaja Yoga Weddings, the elements were in harmony with the auspicious occasion. Just as we throw the red rice over the white curtain for the Weddings, Mother Nature showered white rice in the form of hail during the procession of the bride-grooms and during the Shri Gauri Puja for the brides. Just enough to bless yet not dampen.
 
The Harmony Day Public Program was an amazing conclusion to the Seminar.  The musical contributions by Yogis to program was amazing with the venue full and the joy being experienced  by all who attended.
 
We are sharing some images of the blessings shared from Uluru for those who were lucky enough to attend.
 
Jai Shri Ganesha!
 
Jai Shri Mataji!!
 
Love,
Lyn & Andre on behalf of your Australian Councillors

Easter Seminar - Marriages & Preparations Update
 
Marriage applications accepted until Friday 23rd March
 
Dear Family,

Jai Shri Mataji!!

We wanted to let you all know that preparations for our Regional Shri Maha Mary Jesus Seminar and Sahaja Yoga Weddings are coming along very well!

Our brothers and sisters in NSW are putting their hearts into ensuring that the Balmoral Ashram is fit to receive the Goddess.

The vibrational matching process for the Sahaja Yoga weddings has commenced.
Over 100 applications for marriage were received by last week and HH Shri Mataji's Divine Vibrations have indicated 14 matches so far with more to come. It is truly humbling and joyful to witness how clearly HH Shri Mataji's Divine Vibrations indicate the potential matches!

We have had inquiries as to whether marriage applications can still be submitted. We would like to let you all know that now,
marriage applications will be accepted up until Friday 23 March.

---------------

"Today is the anniversary day of the wedding, and I have allowed them to celebrate it because marriage is very important in Sahaja Yoga. It is one of the most important things for Sahaja Yoga, that one should get married. Firstly, marriage always gives you a balance of understanding, if you have proper ideas about marriage. If you have funny ideas, and if you are just marrying for fun's sake, and you do not understand the value of marriage, then it is just a joke, it's not a marriage. But in Sahaja Yoga you really understand the value of marriage first of all, what it means. And then, luckily today we are going to have some Sahaja Yoga weddings, in which you will see how we try to conform to the divine laws of marriage, and get married under those laws."
 
"So marriage is a very big blessing in Sahaja Yoga, because all the, all the gods and all the angels are watching these marriages, and they will see to it that these marriages are successful."
 
"I hope you understand that Sahaja Yoga is emphasizing on marriages, and we do not believe in any asceticism, running away from family life. We believe that family life is the most important thing. We have to establish it very well on this Earth, and that we have to see in these beautiful nests of divine love that great souls are born, and we have to continue with it. There's no escape from having a good married life. And I wish you, all of you, that you will have a very good happy married life. And those who are not married, I wish them that they also will have a very happy married life."

HH Shri Mataji Nirmala Devi, 7th April 1981, Shri Ganesh and Shri Gruha Lakshmi Puja, Marriages, Sydney, Australia

THE DIVINE MOTHER
95th Birthday Celebration Concert INDIA 2018
 
 
Dear brothers and sisters and coordinators of the world Sahaja Yoga Sangha,
 
This is a follow up to the announcement of "The Divine Mother" concert as part of Shri Mataji's 95th birthday celebrations in India this coming March. (The initial announcement, sent a few days ago, is copied at the end of this email).
 
As you can all imagine, moving a great number of performing artists for the rehearsal period and concerts in India involves costs that are difficult to sustain alone. To make it feasible, we gratefully invite you and your national SY group to take an active role in this artistic tribute by donating the flight costs and travel expenses of the performing artists of your own country, and if possible, by reaching out to help those countries who have a greater number of tickets to purchase, but lesser financial means.
 
Let us work together to make this fragrant garland of love to mark her advent and living legacy to the whole world!
 
The contributions can be made in three ways:
 
1. Purchase the flights online for your artist(s) (arrival dates and times see below)
2. Donate by credit card through Paypal (click link below)
2. Donate by direct bank transfer (IBAN below)

ANNOUNCEMENT
 
Dear brothers and sisters and coordinators of the world Sangha,
 
We are honoured and humbled as devotees and yogis to join in the celebration of our beloved Divine Mother's 95th birthday in India and the world.
 
As you may know, Theatre of Eternal Values was founded by Shri Mataji in Cabella in 1995 and, in accordance with her advice, registered as a cultural association in Belgium in 1996, with a mandate to recruit artists from all nations and perform around the world. Many of our brothers and sisters in India, around Europe and in the USA will have seen or heard of TEV's tours of Moliere's "The Imaginary Invalid", "William Blake's Divine Humanity", "Eternity in an Hour", and the current production of "Shakespeare's Women", penned in-house. CLICK HERE
 
After TEV's performances of "The Imaginary Invalid" in Mumbai, Shri Mataji graciously said:
 
 
"It was my dream to have my own theatre company and you have made it come true."
 
"You have no idea how big it will become on day."
 
We hope that the premiere performance of "The Divine Mother" CLICK HERE  in March 2018 will be a fitting collective tribute to her vision.
 
Theatre is an all-embracing, live art-form; a multidisciplinary and collective depiction of life. Inspired by Shri Mataji's patronage of the arts for Puja and public events, TEV's broad and bold social initiatives such as the Culture of the Spirit festival, a public showcase for Sahaj talent and mastery, and the summer Nirmal Arts Academy in Cabella and Canajoharie.
 
When a story is staged accompanied by a symphony orchestra, such as "The Magic Flute" (Canajoharie and New York in 2000), or, a theme-based show like "Breath of the Earth" (World Expo, Milan 2015), it becomes a personification of the Sahasrara Chakra; a prism emanating creative Shakti power in radiant colours, and vibrant sounds.
 
"The Divine Mother", in India, will artistically depict the defining achievements of Shri Mataji's life and Her iving legacy to humanity: the opening of the Sahasrara chakra and the awakening of the kundalini, en masse, in millions of people. The Divine Symphony Orchestra, with solo instrumentalists and singers, actors, and a crew of yogis from many nations, will manifest the Sangha's core unity, love and devotion, presenting a fragrant and colourful bouquet to our Guru's Lotus Feet in the country of her birth, where the pathwa y to humankind's emancipation was historically unlocked by Her in 1970. A recording of Her own description of the event and multimedia projections will be the centrepiece of the event.
 
While so many ground-breaking Sahaj initiatives sharing her gift are achieving unprecedented results, it is time for the world to know and celebrate the source of the knowledge and unique method, Her Holiness Shri Mataji Nirmala Devi, through a worldwide, streamed artistic event,
 "The Divine Mother".
 
The music for "The Divine Mother" has been composed, the artists are ready. All we humbly request is the participation of each national collective to support the flight cost of their country's performers and for the hosting nation to provide logistical support.
 
We look forward to seeing you all in India in March.
 
Jai Shri Mataji

Dear Brothers and Sisters,
 
Jai Shri Mataji!

SAHAJA YOGA MARRIAGE
 
HH Shri Mataji Nirmala Devi has given advice on marriage in Sahaja Yoga on a number of occasions. The Sahaja Yoga Weddings will be conducted strictly in accordance with the protocols given by Shri Mataji. All Yogis wishing to be married are invited to view/listen to Her Advice in advance of the ceremony and to also seek advice from elders within their Collectives.

Marriage registration fees will be advised and will be payable in Australian dollars. Details will be provided to all applicants as soon as confirmed and will be similar to other Sahaja Yoga Weddings.
 
SAHAJA YOGA WEDDINGS IN AUSTRALIA
 
We all recognise the importance that our Divine Mother, HH Shri Mataji, placed on Sahaja Yoga marriages, as a foundation of our Collective ascent. Shri Mataji held Sahaja Yoga marriages in Australia in 1981, 1985 and 2007. Vibrationally, the Australian Collective feels that holding Sahaja Yoga weddings once again in Australia, as the Mooladhara of the Virata, will have a very significant auspicious effect for Sahaja Yoga and the world in general and we ask that you also please place your attention on this.
 
REGIONAL SHRI MAHA MARY JESUS SEMINAR
 
A 5 day Sahaja Wellness Camp will commence on Sunday 25th March. The Easter Seminar will then follow from Friday 30th March, including a public program in Sydney. Following the Easter Seminar there will be a trip to Uluru the Shri MahaGanesha Sywambhu for those who wish to visit the source of vibrations!
 
It would be wonderful if the attached invitation can be shared amongst your Collectives.
 
REGISTER
 
HH Shri Mataji blessed Australia with 12 visits where She toured the country hosting around 45 pujas, 90 public programs, Sahaja Yoga weddings and many Collective events including the inauguration of Ashrams. Throughout these amazing times Yogis from across this Mother Earth have attended and played a crucial role.
 
2018 promises so much for the constructive growth of Sahaja Yoga and so we wish you all a Happy New Year!

“I mean, this is the first time I have sung these ‘Mangalasticas’ for you and that’s something great I should say.”
HH Shri Mataji Nirmala Devi, Marriages, Melbourne, Australia, 16 March 1985
 
“Specially I would say we are so lucky today that it should be celebrated in the land of Shri Ganesha; that we should be here to celebrate His resurrection, which actually is due to His clean, we can say absolutely Nishkalank life, life which was so pure. His purity was there because He was nothing but Chaitanya, He was nothing but vibrations. He was so pure that He could even walk on the water; He was so pure that death could not kill Him.”
HH Shri Mataji Nirmala Devi, Easter Puja, Sydney, Australia, 31 March 1991
 
CLARIFICATIONS AROUND AUSTRALIAN MARRIAGE CELEBRATIONS 2018
 
Dear Yogis,
 
Jai Shri Mataji!
 
We wish to update you all, clarify the facts around Sahaja Yoga marriages occurring in Australia at the Easter Puja Seminar 2018 and reassure everyone that all proceedings will be carried out exactly as originally instructed by Her Holiness Shri Mataji.
 
Sahaja Yoga marriages in Australia are being arranged by the Australian Council with the support of many Australian Yogis. A team of Yogis from India and Australia will assist with the vibrational matching process.
 
We are fortunate in Australia to have Yogis who have been with HH Shri Mataji during the matching for weddings and were actually taught the process directly by Her Holiness.
 
With this experience and knowledge regarding Sahaja Yoga marriages everything that occurs will be done strictly according to HH Shri Mataji's advice and the Divine vibrations.
 
The International Marriage Committee (the team that arrange the matching during Shri Ganesha Puja in Cabella) was initially contacted and invited to provide assistance with the marriages at Easter. The Australian Council liaised with the IMC and requested the IMC to provide assistance and guidance and to be involved with the matching process, marriage process and ceremony.
 
It was understood that the IMC would participate and assist, if not in person, then remotely. However a recent message from the IMC indicates their position has changed and they will now not be actively involved in the same way that they are not actively involved in Sahaja Yoga marriages held in India.
 
All required application forms have been distributed to Country Coordinators and a committee is in place to manage all applications and the wedding ceremony preparations.
 
We will be accepting Marriage Applications and Applications for Re-marriages (couples previously married outside Sahaja Yoga) and for those wishing to become engaged.
 
WHY ARE WE HOLDING MARRIAGES IN AUSTRALIA?
 
There is a need for regional access to Sahaja Yoga marriages for the Asia/Pacific Region - lots of Yogis in the region wish to get married in Sahaja Yoga but for some reason (ie.  cost or visa issues) cannot attend Cabella or India. These Yogis deserve the opportunity to be married in Sahaja Yoga and receive Shri Mataji’s blessings rather than having to marry outside of Sahaja Yoga.
 
There is a need on the subtle level for holding Sahaja Yoga marriages in the Moolodhara of the Virata due to the constant negative attacks on morality in the world.
 
Sahaja Yoga Marriages have been sanctified to be held in Australia by HH Shri Mataji on 3 occasions  (1981, 1985 and 2007). HH Shri Mataji only held Sahaja Yoga Marriages in a small number of countries including India, Australia, Turkey, United Kingdom, Italy, USA and Russia.
 
Importantly upon regularly checking the vibrations they are consistently cool for Sahaja Yoga marriages to occur in Australia on Easter Monday in 2018 (HH Shri Mataji was married on Easter Monday in 1947).
 
Those wishing to receive the Divine blessings for their marriage in Lord Shri Ganesha’s land can email us at marriages2018@gmail.com CLICK HERE and the marriage application forms will be sent to you.
 
You will find all required information on the Easter Seminar 2018 Australia website: www.easterpuja2018.com.au  CLICK HERE
 
Should you have any further questions please email us at marriages2018@gmail.com CLICK HERE and we will contact you.
 
Jai Shri Mataji!
 
Jai Shri Ganesha!
 
Love Andre & Lyn on behalf of your Australian Councillors
 
'We can really change this world'
Our marriages are, ninety percent are successful. We have problems from the parents sometimes, from the society, but it's too little to be mentioned and it makes one sense to Me - that we can really change this world. No doubt about it. If you remember that the message of Christ is resurrection, that has already happened.
...
This Easter has a great meaning that we are now newly born chicks and we have to now follow a new path. It's a very simple path, but still we are conditioned so we are afraid, maybe, or we have an ego, whatever it is. So drop out all these things. Just humble down and just start walking on this path of Sahaj and one day Australia should be able to cover the whole world. I can't see why not? After all you are the Mooladhara and the Mooladhara must play its own role as the wisest people. Wisdom is the power that you get from Shri Ganesh. So you have to be wise, absolutely wise and know that you have been seekers.
HH Shri Mataji Nirmala Devi, Easter Puja, Sydney, Australia, 3 April 1994
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
Dear Yogis  
 
Jai Shri Mataji!
 
It is our privilege to invite you all to Australia to worship Shri Mataji Nirmala Devi in Her Form of Shri Maha Mary Jesus on the occasion of Easter from 30th March - 2nd April 2018.
 
HH Shri Mataji’s Balmoral Property is such a blessing for our Australian Collective and everyone is so much looking forward to welcoming all our brothers and sisters to the Land of Mooladhara!
 
In 2018 our Easter Seminar will also include Sahaja Yoga marriages which will be held on Easter Monday, the day Shri Adi Shakti was married. We are so fortunate to host this auspicious event.
 
“Today is the anniversary day of the wedding, and I have allowed them to celebrate it because marriage is very important in Sahaja Yoga. It is one of the most important things for Sahaja Yoga, that one should get married.”
HH Shri Mataji, Shri Ganesha and Shri Gruha Lakshmi Puja & Sahaja Yoga Weddings, Sydney, Australia, 7th April 1981
 
HH Shri Mataji conducted marriages in Australia on 3 occasions during Her visits here (1981, 1985 and 2007).
We will again provide the auspicious opportunity for marriages, remarriages and engagements according to the strict protocols as provided by HH Shri Mataji.
 
To be considered for marriage please send an email to marriages2018@gmail.com  CLICK HERE and we will contact you.
 
Here is a link to a YouTube video of previous Sahaja Yoga Weddings held in Australia:

A Sahaja Wellness Camp will commence on 25th March - 29th March and following the Easter Seminar a trip to Uluru, the Shri MahaGanesha Sywambhu, is being arranged for those who wish to visit the source of vibrations!
 
“Now this Ganesha has appeared in Australia as Uluru. It’s a very big mountain which looks like Shri Ganesh.
It has a very big also a trunk going down. 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 the, really the source, source of vibrations.”
HH Shri Mataji, 25 September 1999, Shri Ganesha Puja, Cabella, Italy

Each year there are so many lovely opportunities for us to be together and we hope that many of you can make it ‘Down Under’ to Sydney to share with us the joy of worshipping Shri Mataji in Her Form of Shri Maha Mary Jesus during this most joyous and beautiful time.
 
Love
 
National Coordinators - Australia, on behalf of the Australian Collective
 
“So with all these things happening, one feels that the level of spirituality is really great in a place like Australia which is cut off from the world, which is so much away. The spirituality is very well expressed here, and I’m sure in Sahaja Yoga they will rise very high if they keep to one understanding, that they are living on the soil of Shri Ganesha.  How important it is how you live, with what purity and with what understanding.”

Invitation

 

Jai Shri Mataji!

 

Dear Family,  It is our great honour and privilege to invite all our Sahaja Yogi brothers and sisters to worship Her Holiness Shri Mataji Nirmala Devi in Her Form of Shri Maha Mary Jesus on the occasion of Easter 2018 at Her Balmoral Village property (near Sydney) in Australia.

 

Twenty six years have passed since Shri Adi Shakti first allowed us the ultimate privilege of worshipping Her in Her Sakar Form at Easter Puja in Sydney.

 

With love, the Australian Collective

 

“Specially I would say we are so lucky today that it should be celebrated in the land of Shri Ganesha; that we should be here to celebrate His resurrection, which actually is due to His clean, we can say absolutely Nishkalank life, life which was so pure.

 

His purity was there because He was nothing but Chaitanya,

 

He was nothing but vibrations. He was so pure that He could even walk on the water; He was so pure that death could not kill Him.”

 

HH Shri Mataji Nirmala Devi, Easter,  Puja, Sydney Australia – 31 March 1991

Recollections from a previous visit to Uluru

 

My experience in Uluru was very spiritual, to say the least, It felt as if Shri Ganesha was welcoming us there. As we got closer and closer I felt as if I was being attracted to the place much like a magnet. When I first saw Uluru I couldn't help but feel a wave emotion fill my eyes when we would meditate I would uncontrollably cry with joy as it felt like I had found something so precious, it took my breath away. In that moment I was in complete and utter bliss, I let go of everything, including who and where I was. I just felt as if I was floating. I felt tremendously peaceful & calm in that moment, I didn't want it to stop. It was such a surreal experience which made me realise how incredibly lucky we were to be looking at Shri Ganesha.

 

We went back the next day to offer Puja to Shri Ganesha. We walked around for 5 hours but did not even feel hungry or tired the whole time. We had such a strong desire to see every side of Uluru. As Shri Ganesha's face was there every angle we looked. To finish off we decided to go and offer Puja to Shri Adi Shakti. Another incredibly divine and lucky experience. The whole trip was so memorable and joyous, everything worked out for us and we came back to Sydney with smiles on our faces.

 

********

 

Hi all  my visit to Uluru  was something that never will forget very memorable. .I was praying to Shri Mataji  every day saying, Please take us to see Shri  Ganesha. When we reached  Uluru I felt very emotional. It felt as though Shri Ganesha was very happy to see us and waiting for us.

 

As we started getting closer to Uluru, we could feel waves of vibrations starting to flow from our hands and we got completely drenched into chaitanya  I felt very emotional. We walked around the Shri Ganesha without any efforts  and offered puja, prasad and prayers to Shri Ganesha  and Shri Adi Shakti.  We felt  very blessed and joyful. We didn't want to end our journey.

 

********

 

We had a very auspicious experience. We are still talking about it. We did Shri Ganesh puja first and walked around the rock for five hours. We didn't feel tired or hungry. Afterwards we went to Olgas-the Shri  Parvati Rocks. There we did Shri Adi Shakti puja with Oti, flowers and plenty of Prasad. We sang some bhajans; prayed for our collective and our children. While Raji was driving us back to hotel,  we saw lots of swastikas and Om in the sky.

 

The sky was full of different colours, we felt that Divine was so pleased with us and displaying His love through the nature. It was just outstanding. The girls were full of tears when we said goodbye to our big brother Shri Ganesha. We thanked our Holy Mother again for giving us this auspicious land and creating such magnificent Uluru..and full of love and chaitanya in our heart, we left, but our chitta is still there.

 

We cannot stop talking about the outstanding experience we had..

 

 

 

 

 

 

Rumours and Facts

 

Her Holiness Shri Mataji blessed Australia with 12 visits where She toured the country hosting around 45 pujas, 90 public programs, Sahaja Yoga weddings and many Collective events including the inauguration of Ashrams. Throughout these amazing times Yogis from across Mother Earth have attended and played a crucial role.

 

During these visits HH Shri Mataji gave very clear instructions and advice about how She wanted the administration of Sahaja Yoga in Australia set up and operated. We have endeavoured to fulfil Her requests and regularly refer back to them.

 

She has blessed Australia with numerous Collective properties and Her countless Collective blessings continue to this day.

 

*****************

 

From time to time rumours and false information start circulating via social media and verbally. These negative projections from murmuring souls can disturb the attention and enjoyment of very good innocent Yogis who get involved in them.

 

Social media spreads negative comments as fact and these allegations are then repeated, shared and accepted without checking the view of those who have been the subject of such rumours.

 

Numbers of Yogis have visited Australia and their universal view is that Sahaja Yoga in Australia is just the same as Sahaja Yoga anywhere else in the world – no better and no worse. Many of the armchair experts who comment on Sahaja Yoga in Australia via social media have never set foot here and have no direct experience of Sahaja Yoga in this country.

 

HH Shri Mataji spoke on many occasions that for Yogis to avoid damage to their subtle system they should not get involved and lost in spreading negativity or rumours, particularly about Her Sahaja family.  At a minimum if Yogis have the sensitivity they should check the vibrations of anything they are told.

 

“One person says something, another listens to it and it’s very, very bad thing; because talking ill about others means you first of all get the ill within you. The second is that the way you propagate, you stop Divinity spreading out. Thirdly, you grow into negativity yourself and to whomsoever you talk, that person also gets infected. It’s like a disease.”

 

28 March 1991, Talk after Shri Mahavira Puja, Perth, Australia.

 

 

To assist those seeking the truth a number of clarifications are provided.

 

Puja to family members.

 

Some seek to discredit Sahaja Yoga in Australia by spreading untrue rumours claiming Australian Yogis worship and offer Puja to Sir CP (Shri Mataji’s husband).

 

 Australian Yogis respect but have never worshiped or offered Puja to any members of HH Shri Mataji’s family, and no image or evidence of such alleged behaviour has ever been offered in support of such unfounded claims.

 

Financial management and Transparency

 

Sahaja Yoga Australia’s financial management is carried out to the highest standard by a professional finance team and independently audited, and then accepted and monitored by the Australian Taxation Office.

 

As verified in our accounts since 2005, no Collective funds are used to reimburse any Sahaja Leadership expenses in the carrying out of their duties or to attend International Sahaja events.

 

This is a higher level of financial accountability than observed across much of the Sahaja world, and our transparent accounting shows Australian Collective funds are only used for the promotion of Sahaja Yoga.

 

Financial reports are presented at National Pujas and major Collective events and are available to established Australian Sahaja Yogis at any time.

Administration structure created by Her Holiness

 

During Her many extended visits to Australia HH Shri Mataji gave very specific instructions as to how the administration of Sahaja Yoga would be set up and function with, Coordinators, Councillors and Trustees/Directors.

 

This structure now works effectively to achieve the highest standards in accountability, credibility, and the necessary management and improvements of our properties and assets. This structure also works effectively to ensure all legal requirements including insurance are met. Our structure also provides for regular reporting to and with input from the wider Collective on major decisions.

 

High level legal advice is considered where necessary regarding compliance and achieving the best outcomes for the present and future Collectives.  Work by the Trustees/Directors has achieved very significant savings with Stamp Duty and other benefits allowed by our specific structure.

 

Legal recognition and approval

 

After extensive work by the Trustees fulfilling all requirements and obligations, Sahaja Yoga Meditation Australia has been fully recognised by the government as a Religion and been awarded Charitable Status in 2012 and is recognized as an official Not for Profit NGO.

 

Collective members

 

Australia has approximately 800-850 established Sahaja Yogis who regularly attend programs, pujas and Collective events.

 

Like Sahaja Yoga in many countries there is a very small disaffected group who have chosen to remove themselves from the main Collective and are criticising the administration of Sahaja Yoga Australia.  The factual basis of their negative views is never sought, verified or substantiated by those supporting them.

 

Claims made by the very small disaffected group in the past were carefully considered and checked and found to have no substance and were not supported by the vast majority of Yogis. .

 

The main Collective has no interest in these unfounded criticisms and politics and is simply enjoying the vibrations and love and unending blessings HH Shri Mataji provides Her children settled in Her Heart.

 

Spreading Sahaja Yoga

 

Sahaja Yoga Australia currently provides some 94 public weekly programs around the country and the Collective regularly attends fairs, provides concerts and other events to help seekers achieve their Realisation.

 

The Collective via various teams also provides significant access to Sahaja Yoga via the internet, podcasts etc. – please see for example - www.freemeditation.com.au   CLICK HERE

 

International Support

 

Australia continues to fulfil its obligation with hosting international pujas at Cabella with HH Shri Mataji recognising and allocating Australia and nearby Asian countries and some European countries as hosts for the International Shri Ganesha Puja.

 

The Australian Collective supports nearby countries in establishing and promoting Sahaja Yoga as HH Shri Mataji specifically requested and also provides musical tours around the world.

 

For their own reasons some seek to portray this fulfilment of HH Shri Mataji’s Advice as "propaganda" and "self-promotion" to try and discredit the good work that is done, treating Sahaja Yoga as a political movement where human beings seek to promote and discredit based on their own prejudices and mental projections of right and wrong.

 

Decision making

 

Major decisions are taken using the Divine vibrations, as advised and approved by HH Shri Mataji, such as the final appointment of Yogis to leadership positions drawn from candidates nominated by the Collective due to the respect and standing of the Yogis as candidates.  The process is also utilised to select the countries to visit with Self Realisation Tours.

 

Other decisions involved in the day-to-day running and operation of Sahaja Yoga Australia are taken in the normal way these decisions are made, by a consensus of informed Yogis.

 

Summary

 

As with Lord Shri Ganesha, Australian Yogis recognise the authority of their Divine Mother, HH Shri Mataji Nirmala Devi, above all others and will always seek Her Direction if and when required.   This recognition and relationship rises well above any earthly politics and unfounded criticisms and we sincerely hope others can also rise above such distractions to settle in the joy and peace of Her Sahasrara.

 

Jai Shri Mataji!

Quotation from Her Holiness:

 

“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. You see in the animal, there’s one animal call hyena, and they say this hyena is like that. It comes slowly and steals a child or anything. It’s a very sly type of an animal. And such a person we call as hyena in India, such a person is called as a hyena, and is regarded as a very low type of a personality, they talk like this.

 

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.”

American Tour

18th to 29th August

 

"May God bless you all, in your work which you are trying to do for the good of Americans. It is a responsibility to save America. You know it is a Vishuddhi chakra and all the responsibility of Sahaja Yoga rests on Vishuddhi chakra. So how important it is that this transformation is to take place. Unless and until the transformation comes in, you will see it will not work out. You cannot talk to people, you cannot communicate with them.

 

So you must pray that transformation process must start, must trigger, and must gallop, and must go on spreading like wildfire. This should be our prayer today. May God bless you. May God bless you"

    - Ekadesha Rudra Puja, New York, 1983

 

 

For 25 years, Shri Mataji visited America every year to give programs - from 1981 to 2006.

It was the first country She visited outside of India, to find seekers to grant their self-realization.

In Her own words, it is the country with the maximum number of seekers in the world.

 

This August there will be a large project to travel across the United States, to offer self-realization to the seekers of America, and to support the US Sahaja Yogis.

 

The aim is to cover the whole continent through 5 simultaneous tours, spanning and knitting together almost all of the major collective centers of the US. This seems appropriate on such a vast continent which symbolizes the unity of the whole human race through the Spirit.

 

This large effort was proposed by European yogis over a year ago, with a mind to bring the effort and attention of the global collective to further the spread of Sahaja Yoga in America. The hope was that the project would bring yogis together from all over the world in the land of the Virat, and would also involve the entire American collective.

 

The tours will end by reuniting at Canajoharie* for this year's International Shri Krishna Puja. We also hope to hold a one day seminar there with all branches of the tour (who will be in one place for the first time), together with the American Collectivity and the visiting International Yogis.

 

If you cannot join the tour, we hope to see you at the Puja and seminar.

 

 

Quick details:

 - Realization tour from August 8th to 29th

 - Shri Krishna Puja on September 2nd (in Canajoharie*)

 - Cities visited by the different routes will include New York, Los Angeles, Seattle, Washington DC, Atlanta, Houston, Chicago, Minneapolis, Phoenix, and many others (20+ cities in total).

 - All yogis are encouraged to join us, regardless of age. Tours are not for yuva shakti alone.

 

Shri Krishna has blessed America with many natural wonders and there will also be the opportunity to visit some of these along the way.

 

Registration should be available before the end of January.

 

We look forward to you joining us.

 

Sincerely, and on behalf of all the organizers

New Scientific Research work Published

 

Gray Matter and Functional Connectivity in Anterior Cingulate Cortex

are Associated with the State of Mental Silence During Sahaja Yoga Meditation

 

 

Dear brothers and sisters,

 

Jai Shri Mataji

 

It gives us great pleasure in sharing with everyone this attached article recently published in the scientific magazine Neuroscience related to a scientific study carried out by yogis Sergio Elias from Tenerife Spain and Katya Rubia from the UK et al. The article is about gray matter and its relationship to mental silence during Sahaja Yoga Meditation.

We hope that this will bring Our Mother's great legacy to the general public. Please feel free to share with your respective collectives and for those who are interested in the final version of the article please follow this link which will be freely accessible until 1st March.  https://authors.elsevier.com/a/1WMwr15hTtZQUL    CLICK HERE

 

With all our love and regards

 

Your  brothers and sisters from Spain 

 

Abstract—Some meditation techniques teach the practitioner to achieve the state of mental silence. The aim of this study was to investigate brain regions that are associated with their volume and functional connectivity (FC) with the depth of mental silence in long-term practitioners of Sahaja Yoga Meditation. Twenty-three longterm practitioners of this meditation were scanned using Magnetic Resonance Imaging. In order to identify the neural correlates of the depth of mental silence, we tested which gray matter volumes (GMV) were correlated with

the depth of mental silence and which regions these areas were functionally connected to under a meditation condition.

 

GMV in medial prefrontal cortex including rostral anterior cingulate cortex were positively correlated with the subjective perception of the depth of mental silence inside the scanner. Furthermore, there was significantly increased FC between this area and bilateral anterior insula/putamen during a meditation-state specifically, while decreased connectivity with the right thalamus/parahippocampal gyrus was present during the meditation-state and the resting-state. The capacity of long-term meditators to establish a durable state of mental silence inside an MRI scanner was associated with larger gray matter volume in a medial frontal region that is crucial for topdown cognitive, emotion and attention control.

 

This is furthermore corroborated by increased FC of this region during the meditation-state with bilateral anterior insula/putamen, which are important for interoception, emotion, and attention regulation. The findings hence suggest that the depth of mental silence is associated with medial fronto-insular-striatal networks that are crucial for top-down attention and emotional control.  2017 IBRO.

A STUDY CARRIED OUT AT THE UNIVERSITY OF LA LAGUNA (ULL) TENERIFE

ENDORSES THE BENEFITS OF MEDITATION IN THE CONTROL OF ATTENTION AND EMOTIONS

 

A study conducted at the University of La Laguna on the human brain in the state of mental silence in meditation has just been published in the journal Neuroscience. The article is entitled "Grey matter and functional connectivity in the anterior cingulate cortex are associated with the state of mental silence perceived during Sahaja Yoga meditation", the original text can be found on this link:

https://doi.org/10.1016/j.neuroscience.2017.12.017   CLICK HERE

 

This state of mental silence from the perspective of neuroscience and health has been under investigation for eight years by scientists from several European universities: Kings College London, University of Leipzig and the Spanish universities Jaume I of Castellón and The University of La Laguna in Tenerife (ULL), led by Professor Sergio Elias Hernández, of the ULL.

 

It is said that meditation is, among other things, a physiological state of reduced metabolic activity, different from sleep, which causes physical and mental relaxation and improves psychological balance and emotional stability. In Western psychology, three states of consciousness are described: deep sleep, dreaming and wakefulness. In Eastern philosophy and in several Western religious and mystical traditions, an additional and supposedly "superior" state of consciousness has been described, the so-called "fourth state of consciousness", also called "state of mental silence" or "consciousness without thoughts" or "Nirvichara Samadhi" in Sanskrit.

 

In addition to the interest that meditation has always aroused as a practice of personal growth, the positive results of meditation in the treatment of mental disorders such as stress, depression or anxiety, among others, have greatly impelled the scientific study of meditation in its different facets and versions.

 

The study presented in the journal Neuroscience was conducted in the magnetic resonance scanner of the University of La Laguna, where researchers recorded brain anatomy and functional connectivity in a state of mental silence during meditation (functional connectivity is a neuroimaging technique which shows how different brain areas cooperate to perform functions). For the aforementioned study, 23 volunteers experienced in Sahaja Yoga meditation and a group of 23 non-meditating volunteers participated with whom brain anatomy was compared. Both groups were very similar or equivalent in age, educational level, ethnicity, etc.

 

The study of the brain anatomy of the meditators showed that a region called the rostral anterior cingulate cortex (rACC) was directly related to the ability to be in mental silence. In this rACC area the meditating group had an average of 7.5% more grey matter than the non-meditating group (the grey matter is the part of the brain tissue that includes the nuclei of the neurons and the dendrites who are the receptor of the influences of other neurons). In addition, those meditators who had a deeper mental silence in their meditation in the scanner also had more grey matter in this area than those who had a less lasting mental silence (see figure).

 

It is important to note here that according to recent scientific publications, people suffering from anxiety, depression, hyperactivity and attention deficit, psychic illnesses characterized by the difficulty of stopping the torrents of thoughts, as well as other more serious mental conditions such as schizophrenia or autism, have less grey matter in this area rACC, likewise people who enjoy greater happiness and greater self-control of their emotions have more grey matter in this area. These findings, together with that of this study, show the importance of this rACC centre as an important area of control of emotions and attention.

 

Another important finding of this study was that mental silence was associated with a greater functional connectivity between the aforementioned rostral anterior cingulate, rACC, with the anterior insula and the putamen in both hemispheres, areas in charge of internalized attention, the anterior insula, and the simple state of joy, the putamen.

 

On the other hand, the state of mental silence produced a disconnection of the rACC with the thalamus (see figure 2). The thalamus is an area known as a place where there is neuronal interconnection (synapses) of sensory neurons of different senses, this fact was interpreted as less attention to the outside world in favour of greater internalized attention during meditation, which facilitates the concentration in meditation and prevents meditators from being distracted by noise or disturbances from the outside, an important fact if one has to meditate inside a resonance scanner that has a high level of noise associated with its normal functioning.

 

In conclusion, the study's findings show that mental silence experienced through Sahaja Yoga meditation is associated with the development of neural networks and areas that are crucial for the control of attention and emotions, all of which may have a positive impact on mental health directly and on physical health indirectly.

Cabella Update

 

Dear All,

The Shri Mataji Nirmala Devi World Foundation and the Cabella Team would like to express their Love and their Appreciation for all brothers and sisters around the world in conveying their best wishes for a MERRY CHRISTMAS and a BLESSED YEAR 2018!

 

May all the Sahaja Yogis be blessed by Her Divine Attention. May we all always be guided by Her Infinite Grace into Sahaja awareness and understanding. May Her Divine Lotus Feet always rest in our hearts and fill them with Her Immense Love for all Her children. At this auspicious time, we would like to offer to your attention also the last newsletter of 2017. We are certain that you will forgive us for making this newsletter a little longer but we find it important to share the work and the joy that unite us in working out the many projects in Cabella.

Furthermore, collective attention and vibrational support are vital for the positive outcome of our efforts. The Puja season here in Cabella has ended with a great Navaratri Festival. This summer, Cabella has welcomed over 7.000 guests: an ever-growing number of Sahaja Yogis from all over the world. The love and the joy of this collective has embraced us all touching our hearts, supporting us with the following projects:

 

 

Nirmal Vihar

The new camping tents for the Albera camp

 

 

We experimented with different types of tents and collected feedback from our visitors. The pneumatic tents we have tried turned out to take too much maintenance and care, were heavy to move and fragile for damage. We also tried canvas tents made of strong cotton and found them light and easy in maintenance, fast to put up and reasonable in cost. We got a lot of positive feedback for these canvas tents, saying they are elegant as well as comfortable. We have bought 18 of these tents so far, which have been happily used by mothers with small children and for the (ca. 500!) brothers and sisters coming from India.

For this project, we have received a total amount of ca. € 19.000,00 and we spent ca. € 15.650,00 so far. For the coming Puja season we will need more tents so your donations are still very welcome, if you wish you can donate for this project using the following link: DONATE NOW.

Many thanks to all the yogis and collectives who have already supported this project with their donations!

 

Nirmal Temple

The Ex Hangar

 

 

 

 

Many yogis have expressed their desire to emphasis the sanctity of the hangar at the camp. Shri Mataji has blessed us with Her presence here in hundreds of Pujas and programs and we still invite Her to join us each time we gather to worship Her. So a new name seemed more appropriate and a sign saying NIRMAL TEMPLE was carved in fir wood and put up above the reception desk. Further works at the Nirmal Temple included the renovation and painting of the inner entrance wall.

 

 

Green Resting Area

Next to the Nirmal Temple

 

 

We asked the international collective to propose ideas on how to use the space next to the Nirmal Temple where our bar used to be. We received suggestions through many emails, a majority wishing a simple field were yogis can rest in the shade. So the ground was freed from the gravel, new soil and grass were laid down and soon flowers and bushes will be planted around for the eyes and hearts to rejoice.

At the time of Ganesha puja this field was also used to seat yogis. For the next Puja season, a big screen and speakers will be placed there for the Pujas where many yogis attend. The cost of this project was approximately € 4.500 (removal of gravel, placing of new soil, new grass and fertiliser). We still need to buy flowers and bushes, if you wish you can donate for this project using the following link: DONATE NOW.

 

Annapurna Project

The kitchen at the Mulino Area

 

 

The new sponsored kitchen facilities have been subject to a great load of work this past summer. Thanks to the new appliances and the great cooking teams, the camp has been able to serve thousands of people with delicious food at all the Pujas held in Cabella. Also the renovation of two of the rooms above the Mulino kitchen has been completed.

Total donation received for this project is nearly €50.000,00, the costs have been of ca. €75.000,00. If you wish you can donate for this project using the following link: DONATE NOW.

 

Children's Playground

 

 

An Austrian uncle who has been building public European standard playgrounds for over twenty years, has donated a four seat swing, a slide with regulation ladder and a sand box with small fence and self-closing gate for our children’s playground” at the Albera camp. A team of uncles devotedly worked to set up this brand new, beautiful and safe playground for small children near the kitchen area at the Mulino.

 

New Bellavista Camping Area

 

 

As many of you know, Shri Mataji bought land on the hill opposite our camp entrance in Albera and wished us to camp there at international Puja seminars. Finally, Her vision is working out! During the summer, many volunteers started the hard work and have realised a terrace of ca. 1.000m². Some tents were placed there for yuvas to enjoy the new spartan facilities and the great view. We are looking forward to expanding the camp site to host at least 10 canvas tents and provide bathrooms and showers.

Cost of the first step in this project was ca. € 4.000. If you wish you can donate for this project using the following link: DONATE NOW.

 

New Bellavista Agrotourism Farm

 

 

Since agriculture must be the main activity of this location, we are planning a project of sustainable agriculture on the World Foundation’s land. An international group of Sahaja yogis is looking into this project, which will include beekeeping, an orchard with fruits trees, a vineyard, plant and flower nurseries. The products will serve our needs in Cabella and the surplus will be sold.

 

 

New toilets/bathrooms facilities

 

 

The plans for the new construction of the toilets and bathrooms next to the Temple are ready! As the number of visiting yogis is growing considerably, we urgently need to renovate these facilities accordingly. The plans include family bathrooms for parents with small children and changing rooms. A budget of approx. € 100.000 will be needed for this project. If you wish you can donate for this project using the following link: DONATE NOW.

 

Castle Renovation

 

 

The plan for the Castle's renovation has been prepared by our “ISA Team” (International Sahaj Architects) and submitted to the Italian “Belle Arti” commission for approval. Your bandhans and attention on this project are most needed. If you wish you can donate for this project using the following link: DONATE NOW.

 

Cabella International Sahaja School (CISS)

 

 

We continue working on establishing the school as a protected, stimulating and joyful environment for our children to grow and learn. For this new academic year, we are blessed again with a dynamic and enthusiastic team of experienced staff as well as yuvas. We are aware that this project was very dear to our Mother and we humbly pray that we may grow in our understanding of Sahaj education and in gaining recognition for its value in the broader world. If you wish you can donate for this project using the following link: DONATE NOW.

 

Casa Madre Label - Musical edition

 

 

Casa Madre, the label, and Theatre of Eternal Values have teamed up to release and promote "Culture of the Spirit" branded musical productions of Sahaja Yogis artists, in all digital and physical formats.

Following the "Culture of the Spirit" compilation album in 2015, we are now delighted to announce the Christmas release of "ELIEM the Album", a work composed and produced by the Viennese duo Emanuel and Elisabeth Schulz. It is available now on iTunes and Spotify - an ideal Christmas gift!

Casa Madre's profits are used for the maintenance and development of the Cabella International Sahaj School (CISS) and the World Centre in Cabella.

 

*******************

 

As you can see, by Shri Mataji's Grace, Cabella has many projects in process. All of this can be made possible only by the support of many volunteers from all over the world, by many individual and collective donations and of course, by Shri Mataji's blessings.

We pray to our beloved Shri Mataji Nirmala Devi for further guidance and thank Her again and again for Her blessings. May we all be humble instruments able to fulfill Her Divine vision of Sahaj awareness in this world.

 

With Sahaj love to all!

Cabella Team

Dear Brothers and Sisters,

 

Jai Shri Mataji.

 

 

Please go through the brief information given in attached invitation circular on International Birthday Puja Seminar - 2018, being organized At Shri Adishakti Peetha Nirmal Dham, Delhi (India) from 19th March to 21st March, 2018.

 

 

All the country/state/city/centre Co-ordinators are requested to please bring it to the kind notice of all Sahaja Yogis in each and every centre to enable them to attend this seminar and puja at Nirmal Dham Delhi (India).

 

All of us know that there are fifty two Shakti Peethas of Mother Sati’s Pindas, spread all over Asian sub continents, but “Nirmal Dham” is the only Sampuran Adi Shakti Peetha in the whole universe. Purna Avtar Adi Shakti Mataji Shri Nirmala Devi, has chosen this Ashram for Her Sakar Form to rest here forever and ever. The Divine vibrations flowing from the Holy Shrine fulfill the whole atmosphere and make all Sahaja Yogis relive in Her Fragrant Memories. “Nirmal Dham” is now the most Sacred Shrine (Teerth Sthala) for all Sahaja Yogis.

 

Looking forward to your enthusiastic participation,

 

With Warm Regards!

 

N P Singh,

Delhi State Coordinator & Trustee,

The Life Eternal Trust

Delhi (India)

Hiawatha Family Camp

 

Dear Family,

 

Jai Shri Mataji!

 

The Victorian Collective would like to warmly invite all our brothers and sisters to come together for a Family Camp at HH Shri Mataji Nirmala Devi Centre at Hiawatha.

 

We would encourage attendees to arrive on Saturday 30th December to allow the children to settle in before enjoying a Puja together on New Year’s Eve.  The camp will finish up on Thursday 4th January.

 

We welcome children of all ages up to and including age 15 and their families and we will arrange activities appropriate to the different age groups.  Hiawatha is located on 150 acres in the rolling hills of South Gippsland so there is plenty of opportunity to get out and enjoy the nature with bushwalks and footsoaks in the river which runs through the property as well as ball games and craft activities.

 

Please confirm your attendance as early as possible by filling in the online registration form to assist us with arranging and preparing accommodation and catering for the Puja weekend:

Transport:

We would suggest our interstate guests either drive to Hiawatha, or (if they are coming by plane) hire a car at Melbourne airport for the period of their stay, or jointly hire a mini van if several families are travelling together from interstate.

 

Costs (per day):

-   Adults: $20

-   12-15 years: $10

-   Under 12s :  $5

 

Accommodation: There is dormitory style sleeping on bunk beds and mattresses in the lodge and camping is also available.

Please bring a sleeping bag, bedsheet and pillow case, warm clothing and sensible footwear as the weather can be unpredictable and Hiawatha is very rural!

 

We look forward to welcoming lots of our brothers and sisters and sharing a wonderful week together.

 

With love,

 

The Victorian Collective
