Such a Nice Surprise to see our Event “The Festival of New Beginnings” in the “Burlington Post” Newspaper

The Burlington Post Newspaper wrote about The Festival of New Beginnings Community Event offered by Sahaja Yoga Meditation Network on March 18, 2023 at the Art Gallery of Burlington to honor “Shri Mataji Nirmala Devi Day” proclaimed by the Mayor of Burlington to be associated to March 21st, 2023 – the 100th Birthday Anniversary of the Founder of Sahaja Yoga Meditation .The featured artist in the article is Ekaterina Lavrentyeva, Ukrainian by origin, with whom we collaborated in the past for another very successful and beloved event initiated by Halton Sahaja Yoga Meditation Network.

That event in March 2022 was online.

On March 18th, 2023 we met here in Burlington, and even had the chance to spend more of the weekend together!

Three sisters: Ioana from Burlington (right), and Ekaterina (middle) with Ozlem (left) from Montreal. After the program we went to take a breath of fresh air by the Ontario Lake. Such a beautiful sunny day! Definitely that was the first day of spring in Burlington. We did not know that Shivangna took a photo of our sisterhood, while a Heart shaped cloud was formed above us. Such sweet clues from Paramachaitanya – the all pervading and all-knowing Energy!

It’s really great to see that our online Burlington & Montreal collaboration that started in 2022, precisely 1 year ago, on Saturday March 19, 2022, has led to our in-person meeting here in Burlington, honoring together our spiritual teacher, Shri Mataji Nirmala Devi.

The Burlington Post’s March 23rd, 2023 issue that wrote about Ekaterina and our event.

Surprise, Surprise! Thank your Burlington Post!

We were definitely aware that other media representatives showed interest for our public event and indeed were present during the program. Yes, we were also contacted and told that other media articles will be published in the days to come, however, the Burlington Post succeeded to take us completely by surprise! Thank you!

We were also taken by surprise by the Iranian brothers Yogis and talented musicians that brought us so much joy after the conclusion of the official event that we spontaneously immersed into “horas”,

For those that do not know it, the Burlington Post is the one newspaper that reaches out to EVERY household in Burlington, so it made our day when we received the paper copy in our homes on Thursday, March 23rd.

It also touched our hearts, because Shri Mataji was respectfully mentioned in the note, and that event was offered in Her honor as our spiritual teacher (guru) to us all, Sahaja Yogis that are passing her teachings on and are sharing her love for all humanity.

Thursday is the Guru Day!

Every day has a subtle significance in Sahaja Yoga, and Thursday is the day when we honor the Guru Principle – The Principle of the Spiritual Teacher (check this link to learn more about it) that guides us from within and that helps us to become a better human being, not only for the sake of the community but also for personal benefits, including the physical and mental health.

Therefore, to see that the Burlington Post issue about The Festival Of New Beginnings was published on that day, we found it to be a Good omen for our New Beginnings, the community initiative officially launched during The Mayor’s Speech at The Festival of New Beginnings. We thank the Universe and its all-pervading power known as “Paramchaitanya” for such good signs!
