This is a true and fresh story coming from Vienna from a very dear friend and sahaja yogi, Toni. We know each other for many years and we share as well from time to time news with photos about our families, kids, vacations and of course our personal blessings and spiritual experiences. We’ve seen each other’s children growing, from students studying and meditating in the lap of the Himalayas mountains turning into spiritually active and genuinely caring human beings. They are eager to pass further on to their peers the spontaneous connection (through Kundalini awakening) and their meditative understanding on the world while (of course :-)) having the best of fun with their friends and extended sahaja yoga family – world wide! Their message and motto?! See below .. and remember this ‘face’ .. because now the story starts .. with Ganga.
Toni from Austria writes in 2 recent emails: “I have to tell you about some personal blessings: you may have heard of the famous Austrian Opera Ball ? usually it offers society scandals…, but even the president of Austria is hosting this event. It was always Lisa’s desire that Ganga would participate at the opening ceremony of this annual society event. (Note: Lisa is Toni’s wife, Ganga and Amadeus are their teens children) So Ganga & Amadeus registered last autumn and had to show their dancing talents. 🙂 Some weeks ago eventually they were accepted, but only as replacement, because they were a bit late…Suddenly the cosmetic company Lancome, which is responsible for the makeup of this event, called Ganga and asked her for a photo session. Ganga’s glowing face on her introductory photo has attracted everyone’s attention, which worked out that Ganga has been nominated as “the Face of the Viennese Operaball 2011”. So, Amadeus and Ganga had been dancing in the second row at the opening – means that this year’s Opera Ball will be opened by young sahaja yogis of Austria (at least 2 members…)! Please share our bliss – it has helped us all over the last tearful days ((click!) with the passing of our beloved holy mother, Shri Mataji, the founder of Sahaja Yoga Meditation)– to watch Ganga’s bright smile in many Austrian newspapers. About the actual opening night, well, it was an unforgettable night, as the ball started at 10 pm and lasted till 5 am. Toni was at home recording the live-stories from TV. Lisa was attending with a lady colleague from Germany. But all of us together with grandparents and aunties were attending the dress rehearsal the night before the ball, which was exciting too as the famous Vienna Philharmonic Orchestra was playing for us.Ganga’s face was also printed inside the official program-book, which every guest received, the page is enclosed. Of course, Lisa did not buy an over-expensive ticket for a Loge, but after 2am when the first guests had left Lisa and Susan “invaded” an empty Loge and enjoyed the dancing crowd from close distance. 🙂
A Dad’s Question to the Mirror of his Heart:
“so the question is:
who … is… the most beautiful princess of this country ??“Please enjoy the bliss of watching a realized soul in the media coverage. 🙂May the bliss of Shri Mataji’s children enlighten the Opera and all participants !!Namaste, Toni”
I hope that you all enjoyed this sweet story. The fact that on this most fashion oriented times when any teenager would dream and even fight for immediate fame and short lived stardom, that’s quite remarkable what a playful breeze was for Ganga’s face to appear on the Vienna’s Ball 2011 poster, without any personal desire of such sort. Instead, Ganga’s attention was on helping with the poster that was promoting the cool Self Realization experiment of Awakening of Kundalini through Sahaja Yoga Meditation- that she and her entirely family loved it all their lives.. Such a playful play to witness: full of grace, beauty, suspense, humour, Love and Music – yes, an Opera Ball guided by a Divine Hand!
