The first new people’s seminars for some time were held at Burwood in Sydney on 20 April 2008, and were a wonderful success and our largest seminar held, with over 130 new people attending.

An introductory program was held in the main meditation room. During the morning sessions Sahaja Music was performed, mainly comprising Bhajans which was greatly appreciated. Having live music played on the day helps to communicate the joy that is such an integral part of Sahaja Yoga.

The initial session was an introductory program with a video talk by Shri Mataji and guided self-realisation. Following morning tea everyone was given a deeper introduction into the clearing process using mantras. Everyone was impressed to see the different clearing aspects of Sahaja Yoga presented. This was followed by a guided meditation. This led into a presentation by Dr Ramesh Monocha of some of the scientific research that has been conducted into Sahaja Yoga meditation, linking mental silence as the authentic meditative experience that should be pursued.

Following lunch there was a very good session about how to go deeper in our meditation, foot-soaking, and discussions of the reasons we are all embarking upon the path of meditation using the tools of vibratory awareness. People attending commented that they enjoyed learning about the different aspects of Sahaja Yoga which were presented.

Thanks to the Seminar Workshop team who worked tirelessly to organise a fantastic day for the seekers. Well done. 

What better way to end this report than to hear the feedback of the seekers themselves provided via feedback forms:

It was the most wonderful experience, which I had left behind due to some personal commitments. I feel great, rejuvenated and as a person. It is such a beautiful feeling to see all the yogis working with such dedication with beautiful smiles. Many thanks to all. (Bina)

In this age of commercialisation and business orientated activities, I am delighted to see such activities being done on a volunteer basis and no cost to the participants. This speaks a lot of the true intentions of the organisers, who are there to really the community. Keep it up! (Yan)

40 years ago, doctors and others tried to help my emotional problem and mental health problems. Told, ‘this guy can’t meditate’, I’ve tried ever since. Only now, with Sahaja Yoga I’ve succeeded, at 64 years of age. Thank you. (Mike)

Well run, lovely atmosphere and a beautiful place to be. Food was very tasty, just right amounts. Everyone was very friendly and helpful. I would like to attend any workshops on the affirmations and will be attending lunch meetings in the city, plus meetings in Paddington and western suburbs when possible. (Alan)

This workshop was extremely helpful and useful. I learnt a lot more about Sahaja Meditation and how to interpret the sensations on my fingers. Would love to know always about these workshops. You have my email. (Fay)

The experience was very informative and well rounded. I especially appreciated the medical talk. Thank you. (Deborah)

I enjoyed the day very much. I went away feeling very peaceful and better informed. I listen to the (Sahaja Yoga meditation) Radio program which is very important for those who can’t make it here. Thank you to all, much appreciated. (Suzanne)

The seminar about Sahaja’s scientific side was very useful! The last session of the day was an excellent explanation of the mantras. (Peter)

Well organised, full of smiling faces. Relaxed environment, teachers well prepared. Touch of love for my experiential life, energy all around. (Carlos)

Good meditation instruction. Scientific info most enlightening and useful. Will come again! (Ian)

Fantastic. Thanks! (Cassandra)

Sahaja Yogi at AlandiThe following story is about a Sahaja Yoga program that was held recently at Alandi, in Maharashtra State, India. Alandi is the place on the Indrayani River where Saint Gyaneshwar took his Samadhi. The account was written by Arno from Pune in Maharashtra. The photograph shows a Sahaja yogi visiting Alandi.

“Shri Mataji has told us Sahaja Yogis that Saint Gyaneshwar (1275-1296) was the incarnation of Lord Kartikeyya. He was – after obtaining permission from his elder brother and guru, Nivrittinath – the first one who openly spoke about the Kundalini. He was born, like so many great saints, in Maharashtra and spoke about God in the local language, Marathi, not in the Sanskrit used by the priest caste. In the 6th chapter of his treatise, Bhavarthadeepika (commonly known as the Gyaneshwari or Jnaneshwari) he described the Kundalini in all details. Therefore, the Brahmins forbade everybody except themselves to read this chapter.

“At the age of 23 Sant Gyaneshwar took his Samadhi, which means he left his physical body and merged into God Almighty. This happened in the year 1296 at Alandi, about15 km from Pune, where yesterday, 25th February 2008, a Sahaja Yoga Program was held.

“A couple of days before the program, permission and Blessings were taken from Shri Adi Shakti Mataji in Prathisthan. Shri Mataji gave Her full Blessings. The program took place in a school about 500 m from the place on the banks of a river where Gyaneshwar took his Samadhi. The program was attended by about 700 people: simple people, dressed in cotton kurtas and saris, many of the men wearing the typical white “Gandhi cap”, also many children.

“After an introduction by a Sahaja Yogi uncle and several bhajans sung by the Pune Bhajan group, an excerpt from Ramayana, a television series by Ramanand Sagar, was shown. This excerpt is used in Sahaja Yoga programs all over India and shows Luv and Kush receiving their Kundalini Awakening from their Guru, Valmiki Rishi. So, it shows to ordinary people that Kundalini Awakening is very much based on their own tradition and religious and cultural heritage.

“As Alandi, due to tourism, commercialism, ritualism, Brahmanism and a lot of other isms, has normally heavy vibrations, it took some time for the vibrations to clear out. Then a Marathi speech of Shri Mataji was projected onto two big video screens, followed by step-by-step-realization given by Shri Mataji! The vibrations were becoming tremendous and lots of vibrations were also coming from Mother Earth. The program was a full success and also a clearing for the entire area. It was amazing to see how much the eyes of all the people who had just received their realisation were shining. ”

Arno from Pune

This Is the Truth

(Shri Mataji)

(Shri Mataji)

The Divine has nothing to gain from you.

Truth has nothing to gain from you.

Truth stands on its own glory, in its dignity

It doeasn’t need anything from you, does it?

What can you do to adorn it? What can you put on that?

What can you give to that? How can you add to that?

It’s only you who is adorned. It is only you who gain it.

If you get the truth, it is you who has been enlightened.

It is not the truth that is going to receive anything from you, is it?

If that is your idea, then you are sadly mistaken.

You cannot pay fror truth. Truth is there.

It is there. Reality is there. How can you pay for it?

You must know that you are seekers. You have to get it and establish it within yourselves.

This is the truth: that you are made as an instrument of God’s power

and now you will be connected to the mains by His powers only, by His divine love

and the power will start flowing through you.

You will be manifesting that power through your spirit and you will see for yourself and enjoy that.

Shri Mataji, 1981
