Dear Brothers and Sisters,
It is our utmost pleasure and joy to be able to offer you all our best wishes
for the Christmas holidays. Whether or not you will be having time off work,
Christmas is a time for us all to offer our thanks to the divine for giving
us Lord Ganesha in the form of Jesus. Without whom, we would not be able to
reach our Holy Mother. We can do this with our puja and worship of Shri Mataji,
and we can do this by expressing our love for one another as brothers and sisters,
sons and daughters of the same Mother that gathered us all in to her bosom.
This is particularly pleasing to Shri Mataji.
We can also, express our gratitude to Shri Mataji, by making firm commitments
to go all out to spread Sahaja Yoga to as many seekers as possible. Letís
face it, there is plenty of scope for us to do this. In Taiwan, we are preparing
to utilize a wonderful opportunity that has been presented to us. A 23 acre
plot of land, with an 80% complete Chinese style temple building has been offered
to us for use as the first Sahaj Temple outside India. The site can be used
to house not only a temple to Shri Mataji, but an Ashram, Sahaj School, Sahaj
Treatment center, and Seminar venue. As the Chinese peoples are familiar with
going to Temples, it is envisaged that many many seekers will be able to receive
their realization there.
The project has received Shri Matajiís blessing and Sir CP said this would
be a world class project. And already it is. Yogis from around the world are
already offering their support and making preparations to come to Taiwan to
take part in this momentous undertaking. We are especially grateful to World
Council member Alex Henshawe and our brothers and sisters from Hong Kong, so
many of whom have offered their support.
2004 will be a great year for Sahaja Yoga, not just in Taiwan, but in the whole
of China, and the rest of the world. We, the Sahaja Yogis and Yoginis of Taiwan,
wish you all a Very Merry Christmas and a wonderful and Happy New Year.
Jai Shri Mataji.
