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 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)

The Sign of Peace

                       Shri Matajiram_dassehra_05yp2_les_avants_871004.jpg

You should find, yourself, what’s wrong with you. But it’s not what’s wrong with you that is the problem. What’s right with you is the attitude. Whatever is right with you, put your foot on that. Establish yourself on that point and then develop yourself further. Peace is the keynote…

Try to assimilate within yourself. First grow yourself. That growth itself will tell others how one should be. Your own character, your own temperament, your own nature, your own behaviour – all this will tell others that this is a great man and they will try to follow your example.

Example is the best teaching. When the tree is small, even if it says, “I am great,” nobody is going to come and sit under a dwarf tree. But when it is a big tree, you can see the shade and everybody knows it’s a big tree and they can come and sit under that. You don’t have to tell. In the same way, when you grow you don’t have to certify that “I am great.” It just works.

Now the peace within expresses, first, as peace with others. That is the first sign of the manifestation of peace. Such a person doesn’t use harsh words, doesn’t use cruel words, but he is also not a person who is ineffective. He is very effective, using very sweet and nice words. Maybe he begins by using harsh words, then he mellows down and comes down to a position where he is effective as well as he is very mild and sweet. Such a personality has to be developed outside.

Shri Mataji, 1985
