Rabindranath Tagore

Rabindranath Tagore

Every day in the early morning this faithful dog
Sits quietly beside my chair
For as long as I do not acknowledge his presence
By the touch of my hand.
The moment he receives this small recognition,
Waves of happiness leap through his body.
In the inarticulate world
Only this creature
Has pierced through good and bad and seen
Complete man,
Has seen him for whom
Life may be joyfully given,
That object of a free outpouring of love,
Whose consciousness points the way
To the realm of infinite consciousness.
When I see that dumb heart
Revealing its own humility
Through total self-surrender,
I feel unequal to the worth
His simple perception has found in the nature of man.
The wistful anxiety in his mute gaze
Understands something he cannot explain:
It directs me to the true meaning of man in the universe.

 Rabindranath Tagore

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)

Second Tasmanian Seminar

Recently we held the second seminar for establishing yogis in Tasmania’s beautiful Golden Valley, on the side of Quamby Bluff. The vibrations of the Mother Earth and the hills were there to greet us, and once we had put up Shri Mataji’s beautiful photo, framed in a carved Indonesian frame, with a photo especially made to fit , the vibrations were as cool as cool in anticipation of the weekend to come.

One of the first to arrive was a car from Devonport with four ladies. Two of them came straight in and when they saw the altar, beams of joy radiated from them. One automatically placed her hands together and bowed to the photo. “She is so beautiful,” she said. “I’ve never done that before. I just felt that I had to.” What a start to a beautiful weekend!

There were fourteen of us altogether. They came laden with food – the Tasmanians are very generous people. Eight of them had been to the first seminar and were keen to renew friendships. All of them were always sitting ready for the eight different sessions that were held, and really enjoyed the strength of the vibrations.

We had arranged to do a Power Point presentation on the Mooladhara Chakra – yes, very techno! We had all the right cords and had practised beforehand, but could we get it to work? No! So we ad libbed, and yes, it was the most powerful session. They loved the knowledge that we have been given, and the meditation afterwards was beautiful.

Everyone enjoyed the bhajans and the mantras were sung with great sweetness. Everyone left saying how joyful they felt and asking when the next seminar would be, so we arranged it there and then: 24, 25 and 26 October 2009.

The Ocean of Love

Shri Mataji

Shri Mataji

I’m talking about God, who is the ocean of love, who is the ocean of compassion, who is the ocean of forgiveness. But we do not even understand that ocean, how great it is, how beautifully it cleanses us, gives us a nice bath, beautifully wraps us into nice warmth and takes us to the realm of His kingdom. This is happening en masse now. It is happening in other countries. Especially in India, thousands of people have got Realisation in the villages. And it should happen to all of you here. But if you are not seeking, I cannot force. You can take the horse up to the river, put his mouth in the river, but the horse has to drink the water and enjoy the satisfaction.

Shri Mataji, 1982
