Dear brothers and sisters,
It is with immense joy that we write to you to inform you that today, Saturday 2nd August, Shri Mataji inaugurated the International Cabella Sahaja Primary School in Centrassi. The pictures of the event can be viewed on www.shrimataji.org
For several days Shri Mataji had been expressing the wish to visit the Centrassi villa, where the new Cabella school will be located. We had already prepared the house for her visit but after several false alarms we began to feel she wouldn’t come. This morning, however, Shri Mataji took us all by surprise and was ready to leave just five minutes after announcing her intention to see Centrassi.
The Arts Academy had been occupying the villa for the previous two weeks, so everyone helped prepare for the arrival and then discreetly left so as to allow Shri Mataji to look around in peace and quiet. As Shri Mataji’s car pulled up in front of the villa, those of us who have lived in Cabella for some years reminded each other that Shri Mataji had never been inside the house before, not even when she bought it more that 15 years ago. Would she come inside today and bless the opening of the school?
Our question was soon answered. Shri Mataji went into every single room of the house, on all of the three floors. There are no lifts in Centrassi but her curiosity was such that she was happy to allow us to carry her up and down the stairs. She said that she was amazed by the beauty of the place, both the environment in which it was set and the construction itself. She said it was an ideal place for children and that in fact she had always intended using Centrassi as a school. She asked us lots of questions about how we planned to organise the school, how many people would work there, how many children would there be and so on. She also gave us lots of suggestion on how to do things, advising us to use smaller tables and chairs for the children, to make sure we have a bus to transport the children, to add some fences for the safety of the children and lots more.
Yesterday Shri Mataji was out shopping and while returning home she asked to use a different route from the usual one. As a result we ended up driving through the village where the children will be going to school (as you know, the children will be living in Centrassi but attending the local school). In this way, quite spontaneously, Shri Mataji was able to see the school and grant it her blessings. On her way home today She asked to briefly visit Daglio where, she told us, she has plans to open in the not-too-distant future another much larger English-medium international school.
We are deeply grateful to Our Holy Mother for this unique inauguration of the Centrassi school. We feel we are now truly ready to welcome her children to the school and offer them the best possible environment in which to grow, develop and realise their full potential.
Shri Mataji, your graciousness and compassion is endless. We thank you again and again.
Jai Shri Mataji
