Dear Brothers and Sisters,
It is with great joy that we would like to inform everyone that yesterday, the 22nd April, Shri Mataji arrived back in Cabella accompanied by Sir CP and her daughter, Kalpana.
Despite the long journey from India, Shri Mataji graciously accepted an invitation to attend a welcoming ceremony at Albera Ligure, under the hangar. About 700 or 800 people had gathered from all over Italy to pay their respects to ‘La Grande Madre’, making it impossible to organise a reception at the airport.
As the curtains opened on the stage and our eyes could finally settle on our beloved Mother and Guru, the bubbling anticipation settled into quiet joy and reverence. Aarti was performed and then the Italian coordinator, Aldo Gandolfi, gave a brief welcome speech. A gift was then offered on behalf of the Italian sahaja yogis; a large ceramic plate with a reproduction of a Madonna and Child by Raphael, executed by an Italian artist much appreciated by Shri Mataji. The bhajan Mata Kakaram was then performed for Shri Mataji as the Yuva Shakti offered Shri Mataji baskets of household goods and toiletries.
Before leaving, Sir CP briefly took the microphone and expressed Shri Mataji’s happiness and his own at being “back home” in Cabella.
Suddenly it was all over and we were all left overwhelmed with feelings of love and joy in our hearts. We remembered what we so easily forget; that just a glance of the Adi Shakti can transform you forever.
