Dear Brothers and Sisters,
Allow us please to share an update on the part of the Central Committee. We have put flexible arrangements for our internal coordination, had two conference calls and shall try to meet physically before the end of the year if possible.
Communication We intend to work on a communication concept that we will share in a draft form with national coordinators when it is ready.
Protocol Likewise we shall prepare and share the draft of a Protocol for the CC, gradually including a charter, rules of procedures and code of conduct.
Facebook site on spreading sahaja yoga. The group name is : Spreading Sahaja Yoga International.
When you do a search on facebook for Spreading Sahaja Yoga International, it should now come up clearly. You can also click on the following URL to go to it:
This group is created by the Thailand Sahaja Yoga collective in coordination with the Central Committee. It is an open group which means that by doing a search on face book, you should be able to find it and read the different post even if you are not members. There are so many wonderful and inspiring stories out there. The aim of this group is to enable all yogis around the world to share their experiences about spreading Sahaja Yoga. We wish it to be a platform to exchange beautiful stories about giving realizations, announce programs, exchange documents, posters. Please invite all your Sahaja Yogis friends to join as well.
Email Address for the CC We have installed an address where the CC can be accessed through: email@example.com. You may write to us to this address. Depending on the volume of emails we receive it may be not be possible for us to respond to all emails.
International Schedule of pujas for 2012 Together with the Foundation, we are facilitating the adoption of a 2012 International Puja Calendar for next year. It is expected that most pujas will take place in Cabella while the invitations to host international events by India, the Americas and the UK are accepted with gratitude.
International Marriage Committee We express our gratitude to Mr Nalgirkar and the Committee for bringing together the successful ceremony at Ganesha Puja. We support strengthening the International Marriage Committee because an open and loving process shall bring its credibility to the level where all the yuvas shall fully trust. Ideally members of the Committee should be respected yogini or yogi with solid sahaj, experience, recognized maturity and sensitivity to vibrations. There should be some "reserve" members on the Committee beyond those physically able to attend at a point in time: all cannot travel. National Coordinators are kindly invited to contact the Italian coordinator if they identify a member of their collectivity in a capacity to help.
International Coordination . Countries who wish to launch international events are invited to liaise with the Foundation and this Committee as, by definition, an international event requires some level of coordination. Likewise, yogis/nis who launch a “realize tour” in a specific country are expected to inform all those concerned in this country so as to facilitate further friendship and good relations.
Membership of the Central Committee A member of the Committee, our brother Rajesh, asked us to release him from his membership in the light of the heavy burden of activities and new commitments he faces. The CC shall propose in due time a simple process with a view to select two members by Guru Puja 2012. This will bring membership to 10 members, the number indicated by Shri Mataji in 2008.
In Her instructions that have been recorded, Shri Mataji indicates that members of the CC would come from four or five countries. In other words the CC cannot be a UN type representative process of all parts of the world but, of course, we welcome a broad coverage.
Events in IndiaTwo events are brought to our attention by queries addressed to us: a) the two international seminars that have been announced in two different places for Christmas (Ganapatipule and Nargol); b) the proposal from sir CP to relocate the body of Shri Mataji from Nirmal Dham to Dharamsala..
Shri Mataji in Her speech of Guru Puja 2008 ordered a Central Committee for the world and another for India. So the Central Committee will keep its maryadas and we recognize, for instance, that the contents of Sir C.P.'s letter relate to issues taking place within India. At the same time evidence shows that the concern about removing the body of Shri Mataji is affecting Her children worldwide. This has truly global dimension. It is the Central Committee's view that it would have a mandate to share its views on the basis of its collective wisdom, discretion and vibrations. It must also respond to the views expressed by Sahaja Yogis the world over.
- Regarding the seminars in Ganapatipule and Nargol, we would hope that the celebration of the birth of Christ could take place in the manner Shri Mataji would have wished. It is very simple: love between yogis is what keeps the house of Sahaj together. The Ganapatiphule event is organized by the Life Eternal Trust that was founded by Shri Mataji long time ago. Celebrating Christmas at the seat of the Swayambu of Shri Ganesh is in line with what our Holy Mother had done for many years. Nargol is a unique location for celebrating the opening of the Sahasrara . As it is, the two invitations are legitimate and should be considered with benevolence. Sahaja Yogis are of course left free to choose as to which event they wish to visit. One would wish that improved coordination in the future would make the choice easier.
- Regarding the relocation of the body of Shri Mataji from Nirmal Dham to Dharamsala
Like many Sahaja Yogis today, the Central Committee is aware of the contents of Sir C.P.'s letter that was sent around the world after the letter of the Delhi collective sent to him indicating they would wish to look after the resting place of Shri Mataji. Sir’s letter expressed the wish to remove Shri Mataji from Nirmal Dham on the basis of a dream of a Sahaja Yogi/ni and the cool vibrations felt by certain yogis in relation to this dream. Numerous Sahaja Yogis the world over have indeed approached us who have expressed puzzlement in this respect.
Unearthing the body of Our Holy Mother, Guru and Deity on the basis of someone’s dream is highly unusual. Shri Mataji has given to Her spiritual children the ways and means (vibrations, wisdom, hamsa, common sense) to relate to the guidance of the Divine and we recommend to abide by these instruments. We invite our brothers and sisters responsible for this matter in Delhi to follow Her guidance. If they cannot clearly validate such a crucial decision on the basis of their spiritual perception, they should not at this time disturb the peace of the sacred body of Shri Mataji. Rather measures should be taken to immediately improve conditions at the site.
As a conclusion and in the spirit of our previous messages, we know we are not "in charge" but we shall neither endorse similar fantasies elsewhere. We are aware that we are not manifesting Sahaja through roles or functions but through our behavior. We pray Our Mother to guide us all and bless us with the qualities of non-reactivity, forgiveness and, above all, direct connection at Her Lotus Feet. Thus we shall finally manage to leave it to the All Pervading Power.
The Members of the Central Committee
