Dear Brothers and Sisters,
We are happy to announce with a deep sense of gratitude to our beloved Mother Shri Mataji that on 16th October, we the world collective were blessed to offer our Sakshat Puja at Her Holy Lotus Feet in Her Holy presence in Gurgaon Stadium, Delhi , India. Shri Mataji blessed us and accepted the Puja.
There was simplicity in the Stage decoration. The backdrop had an expression of the just divine abode of Shri Durga Mata with face of Shri Mataji in Her Shri Durga Form holding various weapons as Mahisasur Mardini.
Mother we are grateful to You as Your advent on earth at this period of time has washed our sins and vices from heart and helped us to ascent and recognise Your true Form . You are verily the Mother of Mothers in us. Please continue showering Your blessings upon us to be worthy of being present in Your Holy presence to offer our Pujas at Your Holy Lotus Feet.
The Puja started at seven thirty in the evening with the Three Mahamantras. Then the Italian composed Audio visual on theme of "tour of love and compassion with Mother " was on display. It was simply remarkable and breathtaking . The events and clippings are bouque of excerpts from the Italian tour of Shri Mataji with Her children. The flow of love and Compassion with expression of Mother, leaves one with nothing, but a sense of oneness. Probably, it enhances the expression of the Left heart, where She resides.
It seemed that divinity played all means to dissolve the collective spirit into fountain of love springing from the never-ending reservoir of compassion from Mother through the gathering of twenty thousand collectivity across the globe.
It was as if the heart of the Virata was expressing, quite evident from its' decoration in the stadium with beautiful expressive lightings to its fragrance and the soft chilling grass, accentuated with the presence of Shri Chandrama (Moon) Shakshat along with us in that starry night. Yet, the soft but thick and beautiful carpets laid on the Mother earth in three fourth of the capacity of the stadium on the other hand gave warmth to the restl. It was a milieu that we witnessed as never before. The blessings were tangibly felt as if it were melting down upon us through the chill of the vibrations on one hand and the chilly moonlight on the other.
Finally, came yet another shower of vibrations through the bhajans rendered by the musical choir. A series of popular bhajans in praise of the Devi was rendered. At quarter to ten the beating of drums and lighting of the fire crackers announced the Holy arrival of our Mother. It was indeed a breathtaking moment after such a imploding video show , the added flavor of the explosion of the fire crackers high up in the sky were only an added flavor that sent the myriad sparkles of splintery lights spring out in form of vibrations.
So were the excitement and the welcome heart beats within us, to see Mother after such a long spell. As the fountain of light sparkles sprayed high up in air and dissolved into thin ether, the yearning to receive Mother within increased as the love inside our heart dissolved like icing, paving Her seat within our Spirit.
It was a spectacular event as Mother complacently sat on the throne looking deep into us. We sang in joy Swagat Agat Swagatam..... Hum saba karte hain Swagam….She looked radiant as ever. Her face shining like a thousand suns.
We stood for long even after the welcome. It was quite a moment when the prayer was read in Hindi followed by English while we stood in silence. It was a plain and simple prayer, powerful as never pronounced, with deeper resolutions and vows to the Shri Adi Shakti in Her Shri Mahakali Form. To seek salvage from the demonic attacks In Her Mahisasur Mardini Form. Pleasing the Devi and praying to become Her effective instrument with our dedication to the cause to spreading Her message to the farthest corner of the Earth in Her Shri Adi Shakti Form. We continued standing in silence, while the announcement for singing the prayer song.... Binati Suniye Adi Shakti Meri (Kindly listen to our Prayers O Adi Shakti )…. …. “Mother Please accept our Navaratri Puja and Prayers at Your Holy Lotus Feet”. It seemed we stood for ages and at last there was a gesture for sitting down.
At ten in the night , the little Ganeshas came up in queue to offer flowers at Her Holy Lotus Feet with Hemja Sutam Bhaje…… Thereafter, at quarter past ten the Shringaar started with Shri Jagadamba Ayi Re Meri Nirmala Ma….. Jago Savera Aya Hain and concluded by Vishwa Vandita Nirmala Mata…..Shringaar was complete at forty past ten.We witnessed Shri Durga in Her Shri Mataji form resplendent with Her armours and Devi Roop. Following was the Arti that was sung at eleven by all the National Leaders.
The moon overhead bears the witness to this amazing meditative moments and the outpour of the blessing that was emanating from Shri Mataji on this night of sixteenth. Our beloved Mother looked radiant…radiant and radiant as ever and was keenly and poignantly looking deep into the Spirit of the collective.
It was after a long spell that we were fortunate enough to witness Mother spending long spell to receive the series of international gifts. Mother seemed very pleased and even was seen commenting on some yogis who brought gifts. As the time matured the Devi looked more and more radiant and full of compassion towards Her children.
Suddenly the video display on the LCD screen froze, and the stage curtains were drawn to announce the time for departure of our Holy mother. There was a silence. The heart and eyes were probably eager, or may be was yearning to prolong the Holy darshan which came to a close in an hour episode. But the trails of vibrations were like jets. With the gradual humming notes of Shri Mataji…Mataji…You face shines like thousand Sun…. broke the silence and the stillness of the night and Shri Mataji left behind a trail of vibrations for Her children to enjoy.
The vibrations were not confined at this state only, Mahaprasad were served in an unique fashion. There were two surprise gifts waiting for the yogis who attended the Puja. Two booklets were compiled as gift and distributed to the 15 thousand Yogis attending the Puja that night . One compilation was entitled ”Navratri Puja” covering the Devi Kavach and the other ”Praise to Devi”, While the other one was a rare compilation that treasures the CV of Sir CP.
