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 2009.
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 3rd to the 5th July 2009.
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.
