Sahaja yoga meditation radio programs are being hosted at 2MCE FM Bathurst, NSW (Charles Sturt University, Bathurst) on a fortnightly basis.

Here are some news and feedback regarding the radio programs.
 
A lady mentioned, “I was driving and felt very relaxed. I’ve never encountered something like that. The music was great. I did not know the chakras were in our hands!”.

Michelle (2MCE program coordinator) added, ” When their program is on, the atmosphere in the office changes completely. It is peaceful and no one gossips against anyone.”

It is really a great station and we get to meet other presenters and future presenters who ask us about our program and show a genuine interest. The staff are really supportive. One of them said, “To be presenters is a real privilege, is an honour! As soon as people tune in, you are invited into so many homes, offices, cars.”
 
We are really enjoying preparing the programs and playing at being panel operators, presenters, weather forecast announcers, DJs, meditators.

A little anecdote: we were deeply enjoying one of the meditations in our second program so much we totally forgot to put on the National News. No one complained and we had a good laugh!
 
If you are not around Bathurst (93.2FM) or Orange (94.7 FM) and you want to listen to this program, we can be heard every second Monday at www.2mce.org between about 1.30pm and 3.30pm, right after the local news. Click on “Audio downloads/streaming” on the top of the homepage then on the second “here”.

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

Sierra Leone countryside

It is July 2008, just one year since finding Patrick Sheriff alive in Bo, Sierra Leone, after eighteen years of no contact. That was in itself an amazing event following the chance meeting with the Sierra Leonian lady in a shopping centre in Toowoomba, Australia, nine months earlier. So much has occurred during the past twelve months.
 
July 2007 quickly became October 2007and we found ourselves sitting at Shri Mataji’s feet discussing the possible Tour of Sierra Leone in March 2008. That promised date soon took place and we found ourselves landing at Lungi Airport on 7 March after many vexing pre-flight preparations. Patrick was on such a high as he met us at the airport. It was 21 years since he visited Shudy Camps in England and met other yogis and later on Shri Mataji. 

          

During the 4-week Sierra Leone tour, six Sahaja yogis flew in from other countries to support the daily activities. Every day the public found us at Aberdeen Beach waiting under the twin trees. Simply, people came and sat on the sand with hands out and gained the experience of Self-realisation without too many questions. Day after day this was happening from 8.00am onwards.

 

We made contact with the manager of ABC TV in Sierra Leone, and thanks to his good nature we had radio announcements telling about the beach programs across from the UN helicopter pad. Also he agreed to broadcast a DVD of Shri Mataji followed by a live interview on television. The public were able to call and ask questions live as we sat in the studio and replied on screen. This session happened at peak viewing time and lasted for one hour.
 
He advised us that the Ballanta Music Festival was happy to allow us space during their event. We found our way there and put up our poster. Soon people were sitting in the chairs provided and taking the opportunity that was offered. Suddenly, a lady came around the building and her face lit up. She was the Principal of the Ballanta Academy of Music. She was so pleased to meet us as she had gained Self-realisation nine years earlier in the USA and never imagined Sahaja Yoga would be in Freetown. Over the past two months she has been holding Sahaja Yoga weekly meetings in Freetown.
 
Once we were invited to a dance troupe and 120 people or more felt the Cool Breeze. Day by day, many more found us on the beach. Once we had some children sitting with us and we asked one if he would sing a song for us. Immediately he spoke up and recited the Koran for us for the next thirty minutes. Who are these souls? Shri Mother’s children!

 

One day we only had about a dozen people with us and a man was walking past along the edge of the water with a rectangular board under his arm. I motioned to him to come but he kept walking even though he had noticed. I motioned again and he turned towards us. He sat down and took Self-realisation and would not leave us. The next day he arrived with a partially finished sketch of Shri Mataji taken from the leaflets we supplied. Later he asked if could he do another sketch, somewhat larger this time. They were both very beautiful.

 

As April arrived we prepared to celebrate Patrick’s 75th birthday which we all enjoyed. A few days later we were to catch the ferry to go across to Lungi Airport, to leave for home. In the months since our departure from Sierra Leone regular phone and email contact has been going on. Six weeks ago it was decided to set up a Sahaja Yoga ashram in Freetown.

Shri Mataji, founder of Sahaja YogaThe following letter has come from Cristina who was present when Shri Mataji , who is presently staying in Noida, near Delhi in India, came into the kitchen to cook.

“Today Shri Mataji has blessed the Universe by enlightening the Nabhi. Shri Gruha Lakshmi cooked in Her kitchen, surrounded by the glowing happy team of cooks and other Sahaja Yogis.

Dev, a young cook, was following Mother’s instructions with most crisp attention and skill in creating the Divine dishes: chicken curry, vegetables and daal. The sweet Yuvas, shy and radiant, came in the kitchen one by one with the needed ingredients – lady fingers, tomatoes, onions – offering them as if a puja was going on. Slowly the delicious fragrances started flowing out of the kitchen, changing like the notes of a raga, becoming richer as the dishes started simmering in the pots. At some point all the Yuvas came in the living room just in front of the opened door of the kitchen; the vibration strengthened as Mother continued to give directions: water, salt, turmeric, ghee… She examined the dishes and was pleased with the result. Pictures were taken and the camera recorded the historical moments.

Mother was telling all the time telling sweet jokes, making everybody happy. I wished I understood the meaning of them but strangely enough, beyond this mind I felt happy, too. Very happy.

And as our hearts were filled with Her Love, Mother invited all the Sahaja Yogis in Her living room to sing bhajans, giving us more joy. For a whole hour the angelic voices of our dear Yuva Shaktis entertained Shri Adi Shakti and the heavens. Mother was very pleased.

Much love to you all.
Cristina.”
