The morning sun of Mumbai seemed to be in a great mood in the morning of seventeenth October 2006 to welcome our most Holy Mother, where every heart yearned for Her Holy darshan and to be prepared to offer their forthcoming Puja this weekend. It was a normal sunny day though, but it seemed that the joy in the hearts of the small gathering of Sahaja Yogis and Sahaja Yoginis outside the Mumbai Airport seemed to have the glow of a thousand suns inside to receive their dearest one within.
Just four days ago the UK yogis had announced their joy aloud saying “ this year, Friday 13th October 2006 feels like a very special day indeed… Yes, you can't miss it ….Something Special is happening, for Somebody Very Special is coming home today…….Shri Mataji arrives, together with Sir C.P., at London airport after a long transatlantic flight – radiant, beaming, looking as fresh as a Daisy. Smiling joyously and greeting all the delighted Sahaja Yogis there to welcome their Beloved Mother. There is happiness and joy all around.”
Today it is in the land of Kundalini that a small restricted collectivity of Sahaja Yogis were waiting with all their love in their hearts to welcome our most Holy Mother arriving from the heart of the Virata on a British Airways flight to the Mumbai International airport around mid noon along with Sir CP. Shri Mataji looked so bright and resplendent as if with a glow of a thousand suns, as fresh and fragrant as blossoming jasmine and as cheerful in mood like the morning glory of the rising sun in India.
Intimate moments could be seen and were captured with the family members of our beloved Mother when Kalpana didi, Anand and Anupama (Shri Mataji's grandson and granddaughter) were greeting Sahaja Yogis and Sahaja Yoginis present at the Airport lounge with such a love within their hearts. It was just another moment of joy….may be the Krishnanand…the joy of being collective at the Virata level.
Shri Mataji and Sir CP blessed the queued up yogis as they stepped out of the Airport lounge. A yogini was heard sharing her joy recollecting that 'Mother's eyes were so radiant and brilliantly shining that our eyes seemed to be waiting for this eternal divine glance for all our lives'. The compassion and the love for Her children could be tangibly felt within, while the coolness in the mid noon spoke for itself of the presence of the Holy Ghost. She was looking even more beautiful and healthier than ever before as She appeared in a maroon sari. Seeing Mother, at the first sight it could be felt that Her health of Shri Adi Shakti is in Her full control.
Shri Mataji along with Papaji boarded the beautifully decorated Mercedes Viano Van for Pune immdiately after their exit from the airport. The yogis who were accompanying Mother later recollected that Shri Mataji, alike earlier days, kept everyone alert with Her divine remarks in the Van in the 3 hours long journey to Pratisthan at Pune from the Mumbai Airport. We were amazed to hear the alertness of Shri Mataji while she was navigating us through the journey to Pratishthan. It was around four that the van arrived in Pratisthan, Pune. As the van arrived at the gates of Pratisthan Shri Mataji greeted the nature with Her most gracious smile of joy of like a ‘home coming' to all. The fountain of joy blossomed all around.
The ‘Pratishthan' today, wore a fresh look to welcome our divine Mother with the outer boundary wall that had just been repainted. The entire path leading to Shri Mataji's room was beautifully decorated with fragrant flowers, rangoli, various other decorations and love. The rear gate to the house garden of the Divine Abode also had a completely different look today with various decorations of flowers and rangoli to welcome our most beloved and holy Mother Shri Mataji.
The entire pathway from the entrance to the house was carpeted and flowers laid to cushion the Devi's entrance to Her room in Pratisthan.

The carpet was lined with flower petals on both the sides for the Devi's Welcome arrival in the Punya Bhumi of Pratisthan Pune.
Moving further inside the house, the flower petals were replaced by flower bouquets, diyas (oil lamps) and candle decorations filling the whole area as if to announce the heralding in of the Diwali festival with the holy arrival of our beloved Mother.
After Shri Mataji reached Her room a beautiful garland was offered at Her Holy Lotus Feet of Shri Mataji after performing a small Aarti to Her.
Then an entirely family like atmosphere prevailed and a total joyous mood engulfed the whole scenario. Kalpana didi expressed her desire to be photographed along with Shri Mataji and Papaji.
Kalpana didi was later heard enquiring of Shri Mataji regarding Her health and Sir CP asked Her if She desired to rest after the strenuous journey. Mother affirmed that She was all right and that She was enjoying everything and was very pleased. Kalpana didi further continued in her own fond manner "Mother you have travelled so far from America to UK to India. Mother You only have created this big universe." Indeed Mother You have created this entire universe because of which we are here in joy after receiving self-realization from You.
Her arrival of our divine Mother in Pratisthan Pune seemed to transform everything in a magical sense of joy. Sahaja Yogis who came to greet their most holy Mother, slowly made their exit with souls full of vibrations and joy in the heart as the sun-set gradually cooled the surroundings, accentuating the tremendous flow of vibrations that was evident after the Holy arrival of our most beloved Mother Shri Mataji in Her Shri Mahalakhsmi Form in India.
