Jai Shri Mataji !
The protocols around the offering of gifts to the Goddess upon the sacred occasion of Puja are of deep significance and importance; to offer something which is pleasing to the Divine and which bring blessings to our country as a selfless expression of our love and devotion.
As you know I sent a communication to the effect that national collectives shall not purchase any more jewels for presents to pujas on request from Sir CP.
However I understand many yoginis and yogis would still wish to express their generosity. Thus can I recall that there are opportunities to do so. Shri Mataji has approved the suggestion to the national collectives, through their coordinators, that they are invited to make a contribution for:
Devi Productions - the preservation of HH Shri Mataji’s tapes
Cabella Foundation – Palazzo Doria in Cabella
Chindwara shrine - creation of a shrine site.
Collections should be transferred to the specific accounts that have already been transferred to you, indicating the purpose of the donation :
For India you could contact Rajiv Kumar : firstname.lastname@example.org
Else you could contact the chairman of the World Council financial committee :
Gagan Ahluwalia : gagan.ahluwalia@GlobalStep.com
If you so choose representatives of National collectives may present a financial contribution to these sanctioned projects at the coming International Puja Events. It is also suggested that flowers and an artistic, cultural, and symbolic gift representative of the National culture, heritage, and traditions of the country should continue to be presented with the financial offering.
All aspects in the offering of Puja enables us to be sincere and earnest in ourselves to the great ideals of Sahaja Yoga, of compassion, peace, spiritual enlightenment, and of our complete dedication to Our Guru H.H Shri Mataji Nirmala Devi.
Sincerely Arneau De Kalbermatten on behalf of the
World Council for the Advancement of Sahaja Yoga
