Four Day Birthday Puja Celebrations at Balmoral, Australia

The Australian and International yogis who attended the four day pre-Puja celebrations at Shri Mataji’s Australian National Country Property at Balmoral were all delighted with the arrangements Our Holy Mother had orchestrated for their enjoyment

Days were filled with meditations, meeting brothers and sisters from around the country and visitors from around the world, enjoying the abundance of beautifully prepared food, steam train rides, swimming in the lake, appreciating the beautiful nature and numerous other yogi pastimes

The children received special attention with aunties keeping them busy with craft, music, dance and clearing sessions. They also travelled to Sydney for the special Didi’s children’s party and planted trees on the property to commemorate the special occasion of Shri Mataji’s Birthday. The children also presented an entertainment segment which was thoroughly enjoyed by everyone.

The Australian Yuva Shakti provided a Café / Shop with lots of ‘hard to get goodies’ available and were kept busy providing their very popular cappuccino, hot chocolate with marshmallows, cold drinks and cakes. The Yuvas also arranged a display area where photos of the Australian Country Properties, Children’s Programs, Radio Programs, and other interesting information was on display.

Every yogi at the camp was part of a team and everyone enjoyed the various tasks involved in keeping the property clean, providing all the necessary services to make everyone comfortable and keeping the vibrations at a high level.

The evenings and early mornings were a feast of wonderful divinely inspired entertainment of dance and music. Our technical team made arrangements so Shri Mataji was watching the musicians and yogis dancing live and those in the music hall were also able to watch Shri Mataji and Sir CP watching us.

The program was also being sent out live around the world via the internet and many messages of appreciation were received from around the globe

Shri Mataji’s full attention on the musicians produced some memorable performances. Early Monday morning as the time moved past 3.00am we began providing the musicians with sustenance in the form of drinks, tea and marshmallows as the marathon continued with phone calls advising Shri Mataji was still watching and enjoying. The music program finished at 5.00am with little time to rest before morning meditation

We thank everyone who attended the camp for their tremendous love which was felt strongly in every action and activity and we especially thank the 140 plus brothers and sisters from overseas who honoured us with their presence

Most of all we thank Our Beautiful Holy Mother for making such wonderful arrangements for the enjoyment of Her children and for Her unlimited love, which completely filled the hearts of all who attended.

Jai Shri Mataji
