The most auspicious occasion of Her Holiness Shri Mataji Nirmala Devi arriving in Los Angeles occurred Thursday, the day of the Guru.
A large group of local yogis, joined by the Realize America tour gathered at the international terminal of LAX, with roses in their hands, waiting to offer them at the lotus feet of our Mother. The vibrations grew stronger and stronger as she approached Her children.
Sir CP and Shri Mataji patiently accepted all the flowers from the throng. Then we followed the stately couple outside to find traffic chaos. A water main had broken stopping the flow of cars and keeping Shri Mataji’s van from getting to us.
A beautiful play of the Divine to keep us longer in Her presence. The Yuva Shakti led the group with bhajans as various seekers looked over shoulders to catch a glimpse of our beloved Mother. The car made it though the maze and Shri Mataji and Sir CP left with “Ki Jai” ringing through the breeze.
At home, Yuva Shaktis lined the driveway with candles singing: “Swagatha Agata”. Shri Mataji was given Aarti, ending with a yellow and red rose garland offered at Her feet.
Sir CP had commented on how impressed he was with the courtesy of the flight attendants and how he had never seen such efficient customs when they arrived.
