A CAUSE FOR WORLDWIDE CELEBRATION
The Amazing Discovery of William Blake's Grave
By Shri Mataji's Grace, Sahaja Yogis recognise William Blake as an incarnation of Shri Bhairava, the Archangel who continuously works on our left side. As we know, William Blake took his birth in England in the year 1757, and produced dazzling volumes of Divine Art that continue to attract, inspire and transform people all over the world.
When he departed from this earth in 1827, William Blake's body was buried at a cemetery called Bunhill Fields, situated in central London . In the year 1965, tragic developments borne of ignorance took place: the humble stone that marked the location of his grave was removed, along with almost all the other tombstones in this area. The authorities in London had devised a plan to convert this part of the cemetery into a sort of park, which was soon carried out. Following this process, the location of William Blake's grave was lost. No one, including eminent international Blake scholars, the ‘Blake Society' based in London , or the authorities could point to the location of the grave anymore.

When Luis and Carol, a Sahaja Yogi couple from west London , first visited Bunhill Fields, they knew much the same as most Sahaja Yogis about William Blake. They were surprised to see that the actual location of the grave had been lost and forgotten and instead a stone that reads 'nearby lies the remains of William Blake' had been erected. Inspired by a strong feeling of Vibrations the couple decided to try and locate the real location of the Divine Poet's grave, and set about a long and detailed program of research and investigation to find out the truth.
old maps and charts were used to find out the location of the grave
Eventually, with some Divine help, they did indeed re-discover the actual location of William Blake's grave! Their official discovery was the result of a year's scientific and academic research, which they begun immediately after their first visit. These results have been gratefully acknowledged by the London authorities, the ‘Blake Society', and leading Blake scholars, with some people even calling them up to express their gratitude. What these scholars did not know was that the couple's scientific research had actually simply confirmed a discovery they had already made. Within minutes of that first visit, the vibrations had taken them straight to that same spot, from where a tremendous fragrance of roses emanated.

The London authorities dealing with the cemetery grounds invited the couple to join a series of official talks. At this time, support from around 50 London Sahaja Yogis played a significant role in demonstrating the importance given to William Blake. Subsequently, the possibility of placing an appropriate monument on the exact location of William Blake's Grave was made an item on the official agenda!

As talks progressed, the authorities advised Luis and Carol set up an independent organisation, in order to gather support for their request for a suitable monument on the exact location of William Blake's Grave. Thus, with encouragement from the UK Committee, the Friends of William Blake Group was set up, to petition for this important cause.

The next important round of official talks concerning the fate of Bunhill Fields is set for June, 2006. UK Sahaja Yogis are busy preparing a Friends of William Blake Group Website , where Sahaja Yogis all over the world will be able to register as members, and add their support to the petition for an appropriate monument at the exact location of William Blake's grave . As soon as this website is ready, the FWBG will send out an appeal to Sahaja Yogis, who already recognise the importance of this Divine Personality. By Shri Mataji's Grace, together we have the chance to demonstrate the tremendous amount of love and admiration that exists for William Blake, and the importance of having a suitably impressive memorial. The FWBG will present our collective petition to the London authorities.
