Ioana from Burlington: “We were preparing for this Easter celebration 2013 with all yogis and yoginis from across Ontario. So it happens that there are very deep and eager new yogis and yoginis in Halton and Niagara regions that had not participated yet to such large scale meditation experiences. So, few weeks prior to te Easter we had many gatherings in our area to introduce these ‘new ones’ to the subtleties of Ontario level sahaj celebrations that beside being profound meditation events, they also imply a deep state of Bhakti in Yoga during the occasions of ‘sahaj pujas‘.
That evening, after a weekly class, we gathered at Perviz in Mississauga, and we talked about Jesus Christ and his role within the system of chakras and energy channels, also about the spiritual connection between Shri Mataji and the Son of God. That evening had incredible vibrations! Many wondrous things happened that night during our purely sahaj togetherness. For instance we talked about Agnya Chakra and Jesus Christ being The Light and that he is the Lord of Agnya Chakra (the third eye); We also were reading from sahaj mantra books, and there was one description of Jesus being the Light in the eye of Shri Mahalakhmi (Mother Mary); then Holly from Burlington wanted so much to look for a photo in which Shri Mataji is in meditation; she saw a photo in the mantra book that she liked and she took a picture; the result is in the photo nearby. Isn’t this a beautiful ‘coincidence’?!
Later in the evening we talked in more detail about the puja, vibrations were so strong; all of a sudden we saw with open eyes, how a diamond like sparkle – exactly the sort we see in Disney movies about magic and fairies – had appeared above the little candle. It was not a fire sparkle. It was absolutely pure white, as a little diamond and let traces like star dust. It lasted for few seconds while moving vertically, then it disappeared. That was a beautiful pure divine gift for us to treasure forever. Such a magical evening!”
Helen from Oakville class: ‘We were looking at (Shri Mataji) Mother’s photo while Ioana was explaining the significance of the elements of the puja. Suddenly, a tiny spark of light appeared and fell across Mother’s photo with a tail of light just like the falling stars in the sky. It was awe-inspiring.’
Colleen from Burlington class: ‘We were at a great Sahaja Yoga Meditation class in Milton-Misissauga and just watched an amazing Shri Mataji video. We then gathered together, a few shakti yogini sisters, to plan and organize some different events. The vibrations were wonderful, so strong!! Near the end of the gathering there was a couple of us who hadn’t been to a puja before so we were being shown what the format was and how it all happens. There was a beautiful alter set up with some offerings and a picture of Shri Mataji and a picture of her feet and there was a candle lit in between the two pictures. The explanation was just winding down and we were all just admiring the whole scene at the table when a small spark rose from the candle right in front of Shri Mataji’s picture, we all let out a gasp of unbelievable surprise when we saw it. It was one of those quick joyful unforgettable moments!!’
The Conclusion comes from Shri Mataji – founder of Sahaja Yoga Meditation: ‘You must gain your confidence by your experiences which you have in Sahaja Yoga. As you were singing yesterday – miracles every day, miracles around you. These are done by the angels and they try to convince you that : “You are one of us, just join our company.” So we have so many angels now sitting here, and why should we not think of transforming this world ?!’ (Excerpt from ‘You are Angels’ – Shri Hanumana Puja, Germany, 1990)
