"....As soon as the Sahasrara was opened, the whole atmosphere was
filled with tremendous Chaitanya and there was tremendous light in the sky,
and the whole thing came on the Earth as if a torrential rain or a waterfall
with such tremendous force as if I was unaware and got stupefied. The happening
was so tremendous and so unexpected that I was stunned and got totally silent
at the grandeur. I saw the Primordial Kundalini rising like a big furnace and
the furnace was very silent but a burning appearance it had, as if you heat
up metal and it has many colours.
In the same way the Kundalini showed up as a furnace, like a tunnel, as
you see these plants you have for coal burning that create electricity and it
stretched like a telescope and came out one after another. Shoot! Shoot! Shoot!
Just like that. And the Deities came and sat on their seats, golden seats and
then they lifted the whole of the head like a big dome and opened it, and then
this torrential rain completely drenched me.
I started seeing all that and got lost in the joy. It was like an artist
seeing his own creation and I felt the joy of great fulfilment. After coming
out of this beautiful experience, I looked around and saw human beings so blind
and I became absolutely silent, and I desired that I should get the cups to
fill the nectar, not all stones...."
H. H. Shri Mataji Nirmala Devi.
We are delighted to announce that by the grace of our Holy Mother Shri Mataji
Nirmala Devi, the celebration of Sahasrara Puja 2006 will be held on May the
5th, 6th and 7th at Chalfont Heights Scout Camp, Denham Lane, Chalfont St Peter,
Buckinghamshire, SL9 0QJ. The hosting of this most auspicious event is being
shared jointly by Austria, The Czech Republic, Germany, Hungary, Slovakia, Slovenia
and The United Kingdom who are all joined in love and joy in inviting our brothers
and sisters from around the world to this great celebration of the opening of
the gateway to humanity's emancipation.
Please join with us all here in the Heart of the Universe to offer our thanks
and most earnest gratitude to our Holy Mother for this momentous blessing, share
in the love and joy of our wonderful global collective and take the opportunity
to welcome the Adi Shakti in person once more to the shores of Albion and Europe.
Sahasrara Puja Celebration Arrangements Accommodation:
All accommodation is being provided for inside the beautiful 60 acre grounds
of the Chalfont Scout Camp, with over 40 acres of wonderful British woodlands.
The camp will consist of three large pendals; the main Puja one, and two smaller
marquees for the men and ladies sleeping arrangements. All pendals will be
carpeted and heated, and there will be special accommodation for mothers with
small babies in small buildings. Yogis may also bring their own tents if they
wish, as there is plenty of space on the site.
Please note that NO PETS are allowed on the campsite at all.
Hot and cold water showers, toilets, and a small shop facility will be available
on the site, and we have made every effort to ensure that the camp is as well
equipped as Cabella. We look forward joyfully, with open hearts and open arms,
to welcoming all of our brothers and sisters to this ancient land.
We hope to be able to make some limited arrangements within the campsite
for people who cannot sleep on the ground. This facility, for which there
will be a small additional charge of £10, should be requested by 7th April.
If some of your group are elderly or for any other reason unable to sleep
on the ground, or have any other special requirements, please inform Clare
Transportation and Registration
IT IS ESSENTIAL THAT EVERYONE WHO IS PLANNING TO ATTEND REGISTERS IMMEDIATELY
ON THE PUJA REGISTRATION WEB SITE AT:
by 7th April at the latest.
If you cannot do this yourself, please ask someone with an Internet connection
to do it for you. IT IS VERY IMPORTANT to do this because we need to know
how many Yogis will be attending to make sure we have made the proper arrangements.
We also need to know how many people will need TRANSPORTATION since we expect
to pick up 10 times more people from airports than we usually do in Cabella,
and we intend to organise large coaches for your comfort and convenience.
We must complete these arrangements by 7th April.
We are arranging for pick-ups and drop-offs at the three major London AIRPORTS
at Heathrow, Luton and Stansted starting from Thursday 4th May until Tuesday
9th May. There will be a separate charge for this service. If you will be
arriving at another airport, please make your way to one of the three pick-up
airports using the bus or train shuttles and let us know when you will need
to be picked up. More details will be posted to SWAN within the next few weeks.
Visas for overseas yogis
All enquiries for visa application invitations from overseas yogis should
