Invitation to Her Holiness Shri Mataji Nirmala Devi
 
Dearest Her Holiness Shri Mataji Nirmala Devi,
 
Please allow us, Your children, to worship You in the form of Shri MahaGanesha at Your Shri Ganesha Swayambhu, Uluru.
We seek Your Divine Blessings to invite Your children from all over Your Mother Earth to Your Shri Ganesha Swayambhu Uluru to collectively offer our devotion and worship.
 
Shri Mataji, with all humility, knowing that not even a blade of grass moves without Your Will, we thank You again and again for this opportunity to fulfil Your Request for the offering of this auspicious Maha Puja.
 
Shri Mataji, we pray for Your Divine Blessings and Attention for the spiritual growth of all Sahaja Yogis of the world and for the complete success of Your Shri MahaGanesha Puja at Uluru, Your Ganesha Swayambhu and source of Divine Vibrations.
 
All Our Love, Lyn and Andre on behalf of Your Australian Collective
 
Invitation to Sahaja Yogis
Dear Yogis,
 
Jai Shri Mataji!
 
It is with immense joy that we, your Australian Family, invite you all to join the pilgrimage to the Shri Ganesha Swayambu, in the centre of Australia, to worship Our Divine Mother in the form of Shri MahaGanesha. On the auspicious occasion of the birthday of Shri Ganesha, Sahaja Yogis will offer their devotion and seek the blessings of Shri MahaGanesha sakshat Shri Adi Shakti Mataji who is Omnipotent, Omnipresent, and Omniscient!
 
Knowing that Only Shri Mataji is the Doer of All Deeds that have been done, are being done and will be done, we are so looking forward to hosting you, our Sahaja Yogi brothers and sisters, from all corners of this beautiful Mother Earth, to offer this Maha Puja at Uluru and collectively pray for our collective evolution and the emancipation of humankind.
 
Love, Andre and Lyn on behalf of your Australian Family
 
 
Fulfilling HH Shri Mataji’s request
 
HH Shri Mataji requested that Shri MahaGanesha Puja be hosted at Uluru, the Shri Ganesha Swayambhu. We are so much looking forward to fulfilling HH Shri Mataji’s request and to share with you this auspicious Puja at Uluru – the Swayambhu of Shri Ganesha which HH Shri Mataji has said is the Source of the Vibrations.
 
“Ganesha has appeared in Australia”
 
“Now this Ganesha has appeared in Australia as Uluru. It’s a very big mountain which looks like Shri Ganesh. It has also a very big trunk, going down. But vibrations itself will prove that it is Shri Ganesh, from the Mother Earth. He has appeared in many places, Shri Ganesh, not only there. But there, I felt is really the source, source of vibrations. That’s what it is. And in Australia I thank Him that because of Him only, Sahaja Yoga has worked so well and so easily.”

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

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

 CISS
 
CISS: Call for staff and volunteers
To work in Cabella School means to dedicate time to deepening my own values, listening to and learning from everyone, young or old, to learn better ways to take up things. A time where thanks to Mother’s attention I am lovingly pushed to improve myself in every respect: I seek, I hope with all of my heart, to reach the height of my ascent. I am profoundly thankful to have been able to experience all this. To work in Cabella School is truly an honour and a privilege. Veronica, caregiver.
 
To support all the activities organised in Cabella (School, Wellness, Puja seminars, Nirmal Arts Academy…) we are looking for:
- a professional Cook (on contract),
- a Cook Assistant.
 
For the last term of the school (21 April until 23 June) we are looking for:
- Caregivers (dorm aunties),
- Volunteers to help with cooking, cleaning, laundry.

 collective life, learn about Sahaja Yoga and make new friends.

 Temple in Albera with the planting of wild flowers, greenery, rose bushes, etc. etc.?
 
This is an invitation to all those brothers and sisters in the Sahaja Yoga world, to come to ‘’a green weekend’’ in Cabella.

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

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

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

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

She greeted Her children with loving, restorative vibrations.
After a 5-hour drive from Ambala we arrived tired and cold to Nirmal Dham at 3:30am. Many of us made our way directly to the Samadhi place to be with our Divine Mother. She greeted Her children with loving, restorative vibrations.   READ MORE

The next day, was something we had all been looking forward to for some time as the Tour planning was underway. To be allowed to spend some time as guests at Noida Pratishthan, one of Shri Mataji’s homes in India – a residence Shri Mataji shared with Sir CP and the family for many happy years. The home has been well maintained and very much well remembered due to the many times over an extended period we had the occasion to visit Shri Mataji at Noida.   READ MORE

Lord Shri Ganesha - Uluru
 
 
Response to Central Committee message:
 
Shri MahaGanesha Puja 2019 and the Australian Collective
 
You may have received a message a couple of weeks ago from the Central Committee (CC), forwarded by the World Foundation. The World Foundation have publicly apologised for distributing this email, which other Country Coordinators have stated was not auspicious. The CC as yet have not apologised for sending this email and as such we, your Australian Councillors, feel we should briefly clarify the facts for all.
 
The email message from the CC referred to recollections of Her Holiness Shri Mataji’s advice regarding the upcoming Shri MahaGanesha Puja being held at Uluru in Central Australia next year and also contained unverified statements about the 800-850 member Australian Collective.
 
Briefly the facts are:
 
Shri MahaGanesha Puja, Uluru 2019
 
·      HH Shri Mataji postponed the Puja in 1988.  “So the Maha puja has been postponed in a way. I’ll see to it that we do it” The Role of Women,
19 June 1988, Shudy Camps, UK
 
HH Shri Mataji also stated in Her Talk at Shri Ganesha Puja 1992 in Australia that “This is a place where I  say resides MahaGanesha.”
                View the video extract of both Talks at:  https://youtu.be/EXWTw--NoYY CLICK HERE
 
·      HH Shri Mataji requested that the Maha Puja be hosted at Uluru as a significant event in the realisation and awakening of specific aspects
and qualities of the Mooladhara.  She requested a map indicating that with the  manifestation of Shri Maha Ganesha at Uluru, the Divine
aspect of God as Shri Adi Shakti and God as Shri Sadashiva would also be present. She then informed us which of the sacred sites were
represented by these Divine aspects to be included in the Puja.
 
·      Yogis including HH Shri Mataji’s family members requested permission to visit Uluru in 2007.  Her Holiness gave Her blessings.  Yogis have
been visiting Uluru from 2007 until 2018 as a pilgrimage with no issues and the occasions are always of deep significance and spiritual gravity.
 
·        The vibrations clearly indicate that the Puja should be held in 2019 and as such the Puja is going to be held 6 - 9 September 2019.
 
False, unsubstantiated claims of division in the Australian Collective
 
·     The Australian Collective is not a split Collective. As in most collectives in the world some have chosen to leave. However the numbers are very small compared to the 800 - 850 Yogis within the Australian Collective. The CC appear to have accepted claims of a split from those no longer part of the Australian Collective without appropriately verifying such claims with the Australian Council.
 
·     The Australian Collective numbers 800 - 850 Yogis and is growing.  The Collective holds 94 weekly public programs with a Councillor structure chosen on vibrations and Trustees acting to ensure the professional management of our assets.  These arrangements were created and put in place specifically by HH Shri Mataji.
 
·      Australia has established its financial, and governance credentials to a high level such that it was able to achieve government registration as a Charitable organisation in Australia in 2013. The level of financial governance and independent auditing has resulted in the Australian Taxation Office hosting Life Eternal Trust Australian accounts on their website. The Taxation Office will only do this for accounts they have verified as accurate and compliant with governance standards.
 
·      HH Shri Mataji gave clear advice about having nothing to do with people who do not attend the Collective, 'murmuring souls' and break away groups.  Please see the following Talk of HH Shri Mataji - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Y0NCBAg7Rf0&t=455s  CLICK HERE However, the CC has chosen to listen to and support  those who are no longer part of the Collective and also publicly criticise the Australian Collective, without appropriately verifying these unsubstantiated claims.
 
A few more points relevant to these matters
 
Influence of Social Media and Rumours
 
Rumours spread on Social Media by Yogis (in contradiction to HH Shri Mataji's advice) contain freely made up criticisms and accusations of many things and persons in Sahaja Yoga with a high proportion involving criticism of Australia.    These activities by people who describe themselves as Sahaja Yogis clearly reflect a disconnection and those involved need to be aware of the damage they are doing to themselves and the disturbances they create in others.
 
Overwhelming support
 
We thank the numerous Yogis around the world continuing to inquire about attending the upcoming National Shri MahaGanesha Puja, and the Country Coordinators who have expressed their concern about the CC message and confirmed their love and support and encouragement for the Australian Collective and the Puja. During discussion about the CC email message at the Shri Ganesha Puja Country Coordinators meeting in Cabella, Country Coordinators stated that the CC message was not auspicious  but as yet the CC have not provided an apology to the Australian and World Collective.
 
Carrying on as planned
 
We are continuing with plans for the National Shri Maha Ganesha Puja at Uluru in September 2019 and again invite everyone from around the world to join us for this joyous event. Our invitation can be found here: www.shrimahaganeshapuja.com  CLICK HERE   As we are our own gurus we respectfully request our brothers and sisters around the world to individually seek HH Shri Mataji’s indications through the vibrations to see if they should attend the Puja or not.
 
Further advice from HH Shri Mataji about collectivity:
 
"Relationship should be of perfection..."
 
 “So this is the best way to judge, that whether anybody drops out or not, anybody comes in or not, on your own how far are you going to benefit, what is your interest in this matter and this is how you should judge yourself. To judge yourself, as I have told you, relationship should be of perfection that you should perfect yourself because if you have to offer something to God, if you have get something connected to God that instrument should be perfect.
 
So the attitude towards yourself has to be of perfection. But on the contrary the imperfections of others are more attractive. You run to that person because he’s imperfect. You start thinking [the same], you must help, how can you get it out. That’s not your job. That’s my look-out. I can work it out Myself. You don’t have to run after a person who has been discarded just now by Sahaja Yoga. I’m looking after him much more than I’m looking after you.
 
So you don’t have to bother but you keep to the collectivity, you keep to the sangha, you keep with the collective personality because he will be lost with that person as he is lost.”
 
HH Shri Mataji, 12 July 1982, Talk After Bhoomi Puja before Havan, Derby, United Kingdom
 
"Don’t talk ill of each other..."
 
 “Also as I told you, that don’t talk ill of each other on the back. It’s a very bad habit. That’s how you’ll catch in bhoots and you’ll become extremely negative. Any such thought comes into your mind, just stop it. It’s a very nasty disease, you see, that spreads, so it makes you – I mean, it’s so sickening, you know.
 
When I hear somebody who talks ill of someone its extremely sickening, because it’s not being human. ....  In Sahaja Yoga it doesn’t behove. No Sahaja yogis should talk ill about each other. Nor should they discuss each other. Never! Now somebody does that, you must immediately say “Now please, I don’t want to hear.  Please don’t tell me. This is not a very good thing.”
 
The politicians do like that, but not Sahaja yogis. Sahaja yogis should not do because, you see, you are great people, you are yogis.”

Fulfilling HH Shri Mataji's instructions for Puja at Uluru
 
Jai Shri Mataji!
 
As Yogis prepare themselves to worship Shri Ganesha all around this beautiful Mother Earth we, your Australian family, wanted to share with you, the basis for our desire to host Shri Maha Ganesha Puja at Uluru next year.
 
The first and most important reason is that HH Shri Mataji requested that Shri Maha Ganesha Puja be hosted at Uluru, the Shri Ganesha Swyambhu. HH Shri Mataji stated that such a Puja would be a significant event in the realisation and awakening of specific aspects and qualities of the Moolahara that are dormant and could only be opened with the hosting of the Puja at the site of Shri Maha Ganesha.
 
HH Shri Mataji requested a map of the area as She indicated with the manifestation of the Shri Maha Ganesha at Uluru that the Divine aspect of God as Shri Adi Shakti and God as Shri Sadashiva would also be present in the area. Shri Mataji then informed us which of the sacred sites in the area were represented by these Divine aspects and we would incorporate them as part of the Puja (Kata Tjuta (The Olgas) and Mount Conner).
 
Growing numbers of Sahaja Yogis have been visiting Uluru for many years offering Shri Ganesha Puja and the occasions are always of deep significance and spiritual gravity.
 
As the children of Shri Adi Shakti we feel it is now the time to fulfil the request of Our Mother to offer Puja to Shri Maha Ganesha at Uluru.  2019 is the time that vibrations indicate is the auspicious time.
 
We  encourage all Yogis from around the world join us at Uluru next September.

Please enjoy our Invitation Video  - https://youtu.be/RfWM6gdgH3c   CLICK HERE
 
We are so much looking forward to fulfilling HH Shri Mataji’s request and to sharing with you all this auspicious Puja at Uluru – the Swyambhu of Shri Ganesha which HH Shri Mataji has said is the source of the vibrations.
 
Background information:  In 1986/87 HH Shri Mataji wished Australians to host Shri Maha Ganesha Puja at Uluru.  HH Shri Mataji spoke about this event at puja’s in Europe and at Ganapatipule.  The event was later cancelled due to organisational mishaps. HH Shri Mataji expressed Her disappointment that these negative forces had worked to prevent the hosting but said not to be disappointed and that one day we would return to host the Puja at Uluru.
 
HH Shri Mataji’s discussions about the circumstance which prevented the hosting and the subsequent correction are on the Public record.
 
Love
 
Lyn  and Andre on behalf of the Australian Council and Australian Collective
 
About Shri Ganesha, Uluru and Mahaganesha
 
“Now this Ganesha has appeared in Australia is as Uluru, is a very big mountain which looks like Shri Ganesha. It has also a very big trunk, going down. Vibrations itself will prove that it is Shri Ganesha, from the mother earth. He has appeared in many places, Shri Ganesha not only there. But there I felt is the, really the source, source of vibrations. That's what it is. And in Australia I thank Him that because of Him only, Sahaja Yoga has worked so well and so easily and government also has never troubled us, or there has been no problem with  them. I don't know what is helping them but perhaps it is the Shri Ganesha as Uluru which is protecting Sahaja Yoga there, and its growing so well."
 
HH Shri Mataji Nirmala Devi – Shri Ganesha Puja, Cabella 25th September 1999
 
"I know it's far away - Australia is very far off. But this is the land which is the land of purity. This is the land in the universe is the first centre that you see there, and Uluru that you have - Uluru means, as I told you, is the Chaitanya, is the symbol of that purity." HH Shri Mataji, 17 March 1990, Sydney, Australia
 
“This one is the first center as I told you, is this great country of Ganesha, Australia. The symbol of this is already expressed in the place called as Ayers Rock. Ayers Rock if you go and see has the symbol, which is embody the great Deity that resides on this. That has the same color if you see there, and it has the same Deity sitting down there, which is called as Shri Ganesha in the Sanskrit language. Now this Deity, innocent Deity or the one, which is representing innocence, incarnated on this earth for our save, for our salvation as our Lord Jesus Christ."
 
HH Shri Mataji Nirnala Devi, Second Public Program, Adelaide, 1983
 
“The Ganesha at Mooladhara becomes Mahaganesha in the Virata, that is the brain. That means it is the seat of Shri Ganesha. That means Shri Ganesha governs from that seat the principle of innocence."
"But when you mature, you become Mahaganesha. Then Mahaganesha is established in you and you become a satguru, you become a divine guru; you can teach others."

Dear Family,

About Shri Ganesha, Uluru and MahaGanesha
 
“This one is the first center as I told you, is this great country of Ganesha, Australia. The symbol of this is already expressed in the place called as Ayers Rock. Ayers Rock if you go and see has the symbol, which is embody the great Deity that resides on this. That has the same color if you see there, and it has the same Deity sitting down there, which is called as Shri Ganesha in the Sanskrit language. Now this Deity, innocent Deity or the one, which is representing innocence, incarnated on this earth for our save, for our salvation as our Lord Jesus Christ. He incarnated and He is bestowed upon that center of Agnya, which you see there, which is actually the body is made of the sun, that’s why most of the Christians are sun worshipers. This great personality came on this earth with a very great work, because all others also you can see, but today I would like to speak about Him.”
 
HH Shri Mataji Nirnala Devi, Second Public Program, Adelaide, 1983
 
“Now this Ganesha has appeared in Australia is as Uluru, is a very big mountain which looks like Shri Ganesha. It has also a very big trunk, going down. Vibrations itself will prove that it is Shri Ganesha, from the mother earth. He has appeared in many places, Shri Ganesha not only there. But there I felt is the, really the source, source of vibrations. That’s what it is. And in Australia I thank Him that because of Him only, Sahaja Yoga has worked so well and so easily and government also has never troubled us, or there has been no problem with them. I don’t know what is helping them but perhaps it is the Shri Ganesha as Uluru which is protecting Sahaja Yoga there, and its growing so well.”
 
HH Shri Mataji Nirmala Devi – Shri Ganesha Puja, Cabella 25th September 1999
 
“The Ganesha at Mooladhara becomes Mahaganesha in the Virata, that is the brain. That means it is the seat of Shri Ganesha. That means Shri Ganesha governs from that seat the principle of innocence.”     “But when you mature, you become Mahaganesha. Then Mahaganesha is established in you and you become a satguru, you become a divine guru; you can teach others.”
 
“Only singing the praise of Shri Ganesha may not be sufficient, Shri Ganesha needs to be awakened within us and he should evolve to the state of Mahaganesha.”

National Shri Guru Puja 2018 - Thank you!
 
By the blessings of HH Shri Mataji, approximately 170 Yogis enjoyed a wonderful Shri Guru Puja Seminar at the Wamuran Ashram!!
 
We thank Shri Mataji for blessing us with Her Divine Presence and allowing us to worship Her as our Guru.
 
On behalf of all the Yogis that attended, we extend our sincere thanks to the Brisbane Collective for hosting a magnificent Puja Seminar. The kind, loving attention was felt by all and you handled the record numbers for the 21st National Guru Puja so well!
 
Wamuran Puja Hall Redevelopment Project
 
The Collective's handmade offerings to raise money for the redevelopment of the Puja Hall was really nice to see during the Puja Seminar.
 
After seeking the blessings of our Divine Guru Shri Mataji during the National Guru Puja, the contract to proceed with the redevelopment of the beloved and sacred Wamuran Puja Hall was signed on Wednesday and handed over to the contractors. This is a very significant step and reflects the strong desire of the Queensland Collective to follow the expressed wishes of Shri Adi Shakti and to praise Her in all Her Glory. We thank all those Brisbane Yogis and the Brisbane Council for their consistent efforts to make this project a reality.
 
Love
Lyn and Andre

Uncle Alfred - A liberated soul free, true, and strong
 
We share with you the sad news that our much loved elder Uncle Alfred Hewitt passed away recently after a long battle affecting his health.
 
Uncle Alfred was a simple man moved not by the material concerns of the world.  He was driven by a higher calling to strive to be the best he could.   Uncle Alfred took the pilgrim’s path which carried him all over the world, until he discovered Sahaja Yoga where he found his life's calling and was a much loved member of our Collective. He shared his philosophies and reflections of his journeys as an analogy for one's life and spiritual journey.
 
Uncle Alfred Hewitt was 85 years old, and by many accounts, led a remarkable life.   In the 1970's, he travelled overland from Australia to Europe then through SE Asia.   His journeys took him through Pakistan, Afghanistan, Syria, Iran, Turkey and into Europe. He then flew to Washington, purchased a bicycle and proceeded to cross America coast to coast by the power of sheer will expressed through his humble bicycle.
 
He then travelled down the West Coast of the US to Mexico on his trusted bicycle and into Guatemala. Upon his return to Australia he then circumnavigated around Australia on his bicycle.   As an environmentalist, he was involved in the green campaigns to save the South West Forests from logging. It was at this point in is life that he discovered Sahaja Yoga and joined the Collective in Canberra.
 
Uncle Alfred, with his trusted sidekick 'Fruitcake' the dog, served for many years as the Balmoral Caretaker before taking up the caretakers role for Gidgegeganup Ashram.    Uncle Alfred lived his life to the full with no regrets.   He found his spiritual path and experienced Shri Mataji's Love which was the light which illuminated his life.   He was a liberated soul free, true, and strong.  We give thanks for his inspiring life, which touched the lives of so many people.
 
 
“Keep the lights on. The another thing you can do is, with your light you can enlighten other people. Like we have done here, we had enlightened one candle, with that we have enlightened all of them. So you all can do it, because you have got that light within you. With that light you can enlighten others, and they can feel their joy of their Spirit.” H.H. Shri Mataji Nirmala Devi
 
Using Meetup to promote our weekly programs (NSW)
 
Many yogis are using the online Meetup service to help promote their local programs and are reporting the service is attracting many seekers to their programs. As a result, we wish to offer a coordinated approach to setting up and maintaining the Meetup service for all the NSW programs.    (If you are not familiar with Meetup, see below)
 
Arranging Meetup groups by geographical region
In order to streamline the way we advertise our programs on Meetup, it has been suggested that we rearrange the Meetup groups by geographical region, rather than having a separate group for each program. This will allow a maximum number of programs to be advertised at minimum cost.
 
Want your program promoted on Meetup?
To this end, if you have an existing Meetup group which is no longer being maintained, or which you no longer wish to maintain, please contact Leela Frankcombe. Similarly, if you wish to have your local programs advertised on Meetup, please email leela.frankcombe@gmail.com
 
Meetup costs
As this is a collective promotions initiative, the costs of the new Meetup arrangements will be covered by NSW collective funds.
 
What is Meetup?
Meetup is an online social networking service where people from all over the world can share their common interest with others and meet offline through Meetup. We promote our meditation classes to members of Meetup so when a member searches for meditation in their location, our program will appear in their search results. Here’s some of our listings on Meetup.
 
We also direct the public to our Meetup pages via the class listings on our national website. The programs that are using Meetup are listed here.
 
Love,
NSW Councillors

 Anniversary of Sir CP’s passing
 
5 years ago on July 22nd, Shri Mataji’s husband our dear Pappaji – Sir CP Shrivastava, passed away to join his Wife, our beloved HH Shri Mataji Nirmala Devi.
 
Sir CP led his life in the path of ethics, with total dedication to his duties and responsibilities serving his country India and the International Maritime Organisation of the United Nations, resulting in a career of outstanding achievements. When asked by a journalist about being so highly decorated and yet sincere, he said “My life has been greatly influenced by my Wife,, now known globally as Mataji Nirmala Devi, the founder of Sahaja Yoga. Her vision of one Almighty God and one human family has motivated me in all aspects of my life.” He also said ” I also practice Sahaja Yoga meditation that my Wife Nirmala founded., This is a meditation which changes people from the core.”
 
As we recognise the lives of all the great Saints created by Shri Mataji, we thank Her for the inspiring example of the life Sir CP, a sincere and ethical life of dedication and achievement both in service to his country and to Sahaja Yoga.
 
Love,
Andre and Lyn
