    Se întâmplă lucruri minunate la voi, Ioana! Nu pot să nu observ entuziasmul participanților, sahaja yoghini sau ne, bucuria cu care se implică toți în toate acțiunile. Lumina de pe chipuri și transparența și curățenia faptelor voastre i-au determinat pe oficiali să vă ia în considerare și să vă asculte „vorbele”. Sincere felicitări și succes în continuare!

    Can Burlington get any better!!! With all the wonderful support that came from many officials, the city, and also many new volunteers that joyfully worked so hard to make this event so beautiful, It was like how Shri Mataji said that when blossom times come you see the flowers turning into fruits. This is how I felt seeing all the amazing new volunteers of 100 seeds of joy campaign and the city, the officials endorse the positive impact this campaign has on the community. My girls and I throughly enjoyed the meditation, the music and the dance performances. My daughters are 10 and they didn’t realize how the time passed so fast they were able to sit through for 1 hr:45mins. They truly felt they were part of some joy giving work happening in Halton in such a fun way-can meditation be this fun and easy they wondered!. They were in awe to see the video from our Mayor and as a mother I feel that such support and creativity is sure to encourage the young ones to become fruits from flowers and contribute to the community’s wellbeing. Thank you every one what all that you do.
