Dear Brothers and Sisters,
The Sahaja Yogis of the Hosting Countries feel honoured to invite their brothers and sisters from all over the world to offer their devotion at the Lotus Feet of our Divine Guru on the most auspicious occasion of Guru Puja 2008.
By the grace of our Holy Mother Param Puja Shri Mataji Nirmala Devi, the celebrations will take place in Nirmala Nagar, Cabella Ligure, Italy, from the 18th to the 20th of July 2008.
We bow down at the Lotus Feet of our Guru and Divine Mother, and with all our hearts we thank Her once again for granting us this unique opportunity to strengthen our inner connection to Her, deepen our meditation and establish our awareness in Sahasrara.
We look forward to welcoming you all and sharing with you the magical moments of joy, love, devotion and collectivity that characterise this, one of the most important events in the Sahaja Yoga calendar.

Finally please try to avoid having a return flight early on Monday morning, it is impossible to know when the puja will end and difficult to find drivers for this task.

Setting Up a Stall
People wishing to set up a stall in Cabella are requested to inform the hosting countries at least a week before the puja weekend by writing to email@example.com. In this way we will be able to set up the stalls with tables chairs and gazebos BEFORE everyone starts arriving. Please include:
- Your name
- What you want the stall for
- If you have any special needs (i.e. a larger that standard stall)
Please note that hosting countries will not take set up stalls for people who do not book via email.
A welcome desk will be available on your arrival and for any assistance you may need.
We look forward to sharing with you the unique privilege of worshiping at the Lotus Feet of our Guru.
With love and respect,
The Sahaja Yogis from the Hosting Countries
