The Land of Canajoharie

My experience with Sahaja Yoga and The Land of Canajoharie

– from Cristina (Saskatchewan, Canada)

Cristina found Sahaja Yoga some 30 years ago. She had just gotten married and was about to graduate from Med school. She was however struggling with a scattered attention that made her feel tired and anxious all the time. When she received her Self Realization at one of the public programs in her home city, Bucharest, Cristina felt tremendous calmness, joy and connection with everything, something a lot different from what she had felt so far. Cristina and her husband, who was with her and had a very similar experience, never looked back. Sahaja Yoga meditation became an integral part of their life, and helped them be their best selves ever since. Her greatest joy is to see how people grow better, happier, healthier when walking the transformational path of Sahaj.

Sunshine and rain.

Flower and grain

Thrive as the seasons roll by on the plain.
Improbable breeze shuffles the leaves

Startling the sentient life on the trees.
Sparrows a pair dance in the air

Folks sing the praise of Divine in the square.
Children at play, summer bouquet.

This day is hardly another cliché.

    Lovely poem!, congratulations Cristina, such a soul…of a poet! Indeed, the Land of Canajoharie just takes your breath away every summer day!! Personally I do remember when it comes to drive there you just get wings, there are no worries, no care for rain or thunderstorms. Suddenly you get more confidence, patience and excitement on the other hand to find again your little oasis. Canajoharie is a place where everybody feels peaceful and in a complete, singular joy, within you, a place where you can experience the journey towards your Innocence.

    Beautiful poem Cristina! It’s filled with a beauty that describes Canajoharie so well. Canajoharie is a place that feels like paradise to me, sitting by the pond listening to someone practicing the flute in the silence in which only the wind, and tree leaves rustling can be heard.
    I absolutely need to go and visit that waterfall on my next visit!
