Meditators become Champions in Burlington Community

Let’s discover the Yogi Meditators considered to be Champions in our Burlington Community

Mother’s Day celebrated in Burlington by the Sahaja Yogis, honoring their spiritual mother Shri Mataji Nirmala Devi (1923 – 2011)

We have a joyful announcement to make to the collectivity of family, friends and seekers that visit our blog. As always, we put it in perspective and in connection to the wisdom shared by sahaja yoga meditation and the teachings of Shri Mataji. Today is about champions, championship and the warning we receive as human beings from our spiritual teacher and mother, to pay attention to our relationship to dharma, to the subtle relationships with the divine principles that exist within us and observe every step in our life.

Enjoy the photos and video-clips that we are sharing, as well click “here and there” to learn some deep notions that will help with your subtle understanding and spiritual evolution. Let’s go!

Shri Mataji Nirmala Devi – The Founder of Sahaja Yoga Meditation

Shri Mataji about Championship:

“I used to write poetry, I’m very fond of nature, but then I told Myself: You have to do work for Sahaja Yoga. If You take to poetry, they’ll all call You a poetess. And I don’t want to have any such position to be a poetess and all that, so I gave it up. And I was a very good sportswoman. I used to play things, I used to be first in every sort of game, and I had championship, this and that. I gave it up. Whatever I did, I used to get into it. I studied medicine, I stood in the first at the whole university. I gave it up. Why? Because I am the Primordial Mother, and I have to do the job of awakening the primordial nature, the dharma within human beings, and that’s what I have to do and nothing else. But for that, I don’t do anything. I am Nishkriya – I don’t do anything. Really, I don’t do. It is done by the nature. Done by Shri Ganesha. Vishnu, Mahesha [i.e. divine principles and powers built in within our subtle system of energy centers], everybody. They are doing it.

But, then what is the relationship? The relationship is, they are all in My body and they are all bound by their own dharma. And they act. This is the relationship: spontaneous, automatic, like a built-in relationship. For example, the fan is built in, so as soon as you push the button it starts moving. It’s like that. All of them are related to Me, and they have a tremendous protocol, tremendous respect, that if I say anything, they will not finish it. 

See, this thing is, that very, very deep thing that I am telling you: that you are a human being, that is, there is built in within you are your dharmas, and if you go against your dharma, then you’ll be finished. They’re all built in within you. They are all there, potentially. I hope you’ll understand how important it is to be aware of your restrictions within yourself. So thank you very much, all of you.

May God bless you.”

Our Announcement about Community Champions:

This year, while I was in vacation in Europe, there was an email that caught my attention. It was about the Champions in our Community, here in Burlington. Actually it said:

Excerpt from the email invite to the VIP party celebrating the Community Champions next week, on October 24th, 2023.

As sahaja yogis we know that there are meaningful connections happening in our lives. Right now many in the world are celebrating the Navaratri Festival — the Nine Nights of worship of the Goddess, the Motherly power that protects the Creation. We have offered even seminars and special events dedicated to the Festival, because it relates to the strengthening of the Heart Center, the Anahat chakra, that is responsible with fighting our fears as well is the one that governs our immune system, besides other crucial qualities.

We sometimes are saying that it helps us become warriors of love, using our positiveness in spreading compassion. This year, the last day of Navaratri falls on October 24th and that’s the day when we are invited and called to be “Community Champions”. You can see the connection right there?! Shri Mataji – the founder of sahaja yoga meditation and our spiritual mother – would be pleased to see that her children from Burlington keep her ideals close to heart and are sharing them further with our community.

These are just a few snapshots from the two most recent festivals in Burlington where our team of volunteers from Sahaja Yoga Meditation Network interacted with hundreds of people, each one took home a joyous and peaceful moment of self-realization.

Enjoy some video-clips as well and why not, learn more about Sahaja Yoga Meditation from the articles shared below.

We want to offer this recognition, that happens on Dussehra, the culmination of the Navaratri Festival, the victory of good over evil, to Shri Mataji Nirmala Devi – our spiritual Mother – who taught us to celebrate the Self Realization in every one and to make sure that the genuine ‘sahaj character’ that stands on truth, collectivity, love and compassion for the Whole is always shinning through with joy and generosity!

    I enjoyed your article, and I’m in awe of all the nice successful events that you organize in your community to share the knowledge of yoga and meditation. I found one more cute coincidence: I’m a meditator, too, and I’ve received an award on volunteer work from my city St-Lambert (Quebec) nearly at the same moment (October 21st, 2023). Though it was related to help for Ukraine and Ukrainians.
