On the Eve of India's independence day (August 15th), we were blessed to have the privilege of celebrating this special occassion with Shri Mataji. She was extremely happy to see Sahaja Yogis and welcomed them in Her living room.
First, an Indian flag was offered to Her and a prayer was recited for the divine blessings and protection of India. Yogis sang 'Vande Mataram' and 'Maa Teri Jay Ho tera hee vijay Ho'. She looked radiant as She and Sir C.P. shared their memories of the Indian flag rising on this day 58 years ago.
Afterwards, we sang the national anthem. Shri Mataji was a bit emotional as She watched the joyful faces of all the yogis. Later, Shri Mataji and Sir CP watched the live coverage of the Indian Prime minister's speech from Red Fort and shared their views and comments on the current situation in India.
The night before this, a few artists had the opportunity to offer a flute concert in Shri Mataji's presence. Shri Mataji was overly pleased as She enjoyed the melody of 'Binati Suniye' and 'Vaishnav Jan' on flute, followed by a qawalli and bhajans. The concert was broadcast and watched live by a large of Sahaja Yogis worldwide.
We have the pre-recorded video from these evenings for you to enjoy. Please click on the photo below to watch the video.
