Dear Brothers & Sisters,
This is how it went.
We arrived at Sanjaan station and from there proceeded
to Nargol, which is about twenty minutes by road from
the railway station. The collectivity was housed in a
Parsi Association Guest House which is located right
there where Shri Mataji first opened the Sahasrara
first in 1970.
As soon as we arrived at the Railway station and
climbed the bridge, I could feel the vibrations
coursing through every pore of my being, clearing away
my insides of the tiredness associated with the whole
night's work in office before.
As we arrived, we freshened up and then after taking
note of the schedule, I went to the sea beach, which
is a stone's throw from where we were standing.
Now, waterfronts are always special and unique places
for me and this one was even more special because of
its spiritual significance. And I was right there on
the ocean, with no one around me, maybe just three or
four people in the stretch of half a kilometre on
either side from where I was standing.
Mother says that the Ocean is our Father, and we have
to respect Him. And, there I was, standing in front of
our Father watching in awe and respect.
And there He was, in His full glory and magnificence,
with His arms extending as far as one could see, with
the strength of a thousand volcanoes and with the calm
of a million moons.
The moment was so unique, so peaceful and so
awe-inspiring and the vibrations were so sweet and
loving that I felt that my outer shell has vanished
and I was not the flesh and blood that we are, but I
was only the spirit—an ansh (part) of the
Parmeshwar, a beloved son of God Almighty. I felt
elevated three feet above the water. I closed my eyes,
and the vibrations flowed through each and every pore
of my physical self, elevating me to the state of
Nirvicharita and I let the vibrations take me wherever
they wanted. I floated through endless galaxies and
many a million miles, before the cool and soothing
water lapping away at my feet on the sand brought me
back to my senses, where I was.
It was so beautiful that I cannot tell, I cannot
describe. And, I felt the love of our Father
surrounding me, enveloping me from all four
directions. And, overwhelmed, I said," Father, here I
am, your beloved son, in front of you. Aren't you glad
to see me?”
And in reply the little waterfronts continued to wash
on the shore and lap away at my feet.
This continued for maybe three or four minutes, and I
could feel the clearing taking place, as we all know
that you can foot soak when on an oceanfront.
And, I kept on talking with my Father all the time," I
am so glad to see you, and it is so peaceful here, I
wish all the Sahaji brethen were here. How beautiful
it would be"
And the waves and the foam continued to wash ashore.
I could've sat there forever, and all of a sudden I
was envious of all those who stayed near to the rivers
and seas—Sahajis or non-Sahajis.
But then all of a sudden, the waves started coming in
fast and strong. And the water breaking on the shore
started pushing me back, forcing me back by two or
three inches from where I was standing.
I said," Father, why do you want me to go? It is not
even a quarter of an hour I have been with you. Aren't
you happy that I am here? Why do you push me away?”
And there were tears in my eyes.
But, He wouldn't listen, He wouldn't consider. The
water still started coming in fast and furious, and I
was again pushed back three inches, and I could feel
him in the Nirakaar (formless) telling me in my
Sahasrara," Go, Go, Go.”
Sadly, I said," All right, if that is what You wish.”
And, with a prayer of gratitude and a Pranaam from the
bottom of my heart, I turned around.
And I was walking through the small trees there on the
shore, back to the guesthouse, when a fellow Sahaji
told me," Do you wish to see the tree where it all
started? The place where Shri Mataji opened the
Sahasrara first in 1970?”
I said," Yes"And went along with him.
The tree was right there, as it was, 34 years ago, the
place where the resurgence started, the place where
the light of the Spirit was first awakened in our
mortal shells, the starting of Kritayuga, the place
where the Super-consciousness first descended on this
And, it was another over whelming spectacle, an
occasion which left me speechless, overawed by the
enormity, the love and yet the simplicity of the
The tree is cemented at the bottom, in the form of a
square, in order to preserve it. You can feel the cool
breeze even in the noon sun.
Next to this tree close by is another tree where the
Sahaji brethen had last year tied a scarf with the
words"Jai Shri Mataji"After taking out a small
I went and sat there for some time.
And before I know I had dozed off. I could feel the
vibrations clearing my subtle system while I slept,
and I could feel myself being refreshed in mind, body
I got up an hour later and went back to the guesthouse
in order to prepare for the evening's programme and
First there was a small collective meeting where
general things were discussed.
Then there was a Hawan there in the evening, when the
108 names of Shri Mataji were taken and we meditated
in the Sahasrara.
The vibrations were as always, beautiful and soothing.
Then after dinner, Sahaji brother Deepak Verma (who is
a singer) held the stage with beautiful beautiful
bhajans, which were as comforting as they can get.
"Jaago Savera Aaya Hai"," Jaago He Jagdambe Jaago He
Jwala"," Shri Jagdambe Aayi Re Meri Nirmal Maa",
"Haasat Aali Nirmal Aayi"Were all sung by everyone in
collectivity and a few of the brothers and sisters
danced in front of Mother with abandon and joy.
The organisers had rented rooms of the hostel of the
Parsi association for staying overnight, but half of
the Sahajis took cloth sheets and went and slept
beneath the tree where it all started !!!
And, the other half, slept in the tent, which was
bound to host the programme and the Puja !!!
The next day in the morning we got up early at six for
morning meditation. And immediately after the Bandhan,
balancing of left, right & centre and the morning
Dhyana, all Sahaji brethen got together and took a
pole on which was tied a saffron scarf which has"Jai
Shri Mataji"Written on it. The entire collectivity
was there, and there were Nirmal Bhajans from
Shri Radha-Krishna Sakshaat floated through our
Vishuddhis and everyone was singing effortlessly in
unison with the"Jai Jai's"of Shri Mataji.
The collectivity took the pole to the cemented tree.
And there a Sahaji bhai climbed up the tree and tied
the scarf and the pole.
All the while everyone was singing in unison
The brothers and sisters danced in unison around the
tree, with the sheer joy of being Nirmal, of being
Nishkalank, all in the love of our beloved Mother.
Mother says that when you are in Sahaj, you are not
the mind, the body, the flesh, the blood, but you are
the Spirit—the purest form of God Almighty.
That which cannot be cleaved, that which cannot be
burnt, that which cannot be destroyed.
And that which cannot be tainted
The Spirit is Nirmal.
And so are you all.
You are the Moon without the blemish in it.
Each one of you is Nishkalank (spotless).
The greatest joy on this planet besides being a Sahaji
is to be proclaimed Nishkalank (spotless) by our
beloved Mother, by the Primordial Being, by the
Viraat, by the Adishakti, by the Holy Spirit—H. H.
Mataji Nirmala Devi.
It was dances with angels, dances with the divine.
It was awesome. I wish you were there.
After meditating there in peace beneath the tree, we
all went to the seashore, the entire collectivity.
And, there all of us did balancing in the water,
barefoot, in the meanwhile praying to our Mother and
to our Father in Heaven.
Some of us put our first fingers in the ears and
And all of us just enjoyed the atmosphere.
Going back we had breakfast and lots of lots of Tea.
And, then we all got ready for the Puja.

"Riddhi Siddhi Gaj wadan Manohar .............”

The love of God Almighty—only in Sahaj.
Moksha—only in Sahaj.

At the end of it all the state leaders told us that
everyone can and should come back to Nargol in a group
of 15-20 atleast once a month.
There is provision for accommodation and food, which
is very very affordable.
You can bring photos of Mother, light candles beneath
the tree, and do Dhyana.
But to do a Puja there, (i.e. collection of money and
like, whenever the Pujas happen at our centres) is not
That is against protocol.
Otherwise, for Dhyana and for meditation, there are no
We, from Gujarat, do have a Shuddh Iccha to go there

From India, I send you pure love.
May Mother Bless Us All.
