“What a night, what a night, what a wonderful night”

Shri Mataji and Sir CP both were radiant on the night of their 59th Wedding Anniversary. It was a night of immense joy. All the Sydney collective and beyond squeezed into Burwood Ashram to take their chance to see the Goddess in residence….and see Her they did!

Arti was offered and then Celebratory gifts to Shri Mataji and Sir CP and a heartshaped cake in pink and white, beautifully decorated. Then Bhajans, Qawallis and “a capellla” Yuva Shakti presentation which was so joyful, provided the musical entertainment for the evening.

Then, as is the generosity of our most Holy Mother,  She gave gifts to many of the collective who have been supporting Her tour. Yogis from the Kitchen, the  flower decorators, the  Laundry and Council members and of course all the children. And all the while the whole collective sang Bhajans and just totally enjoyed the chance to be at Our Holy Mothers Lotus Feet.

A new bhajan was offered to Shri Mataji called the Kingdom of Heaven is here….and really the words describe the feeling of amongst the collective ..that really this has been a most remarkable period of time that we have all experienced and we will never be the same again, transported into the Kingdom of Heaven with Our Mother holding our hands the whole way.

“Oh, the Kingdom of Heaven is here
and Your Majesty rules from within.
Your name is Goddess Nirmala
 Speechless we are blessed with Your darshan
Wisdom of the ages in the children’s eyes.
A cool breeze from a haven and diamonds in the sky
Faces growing younger with a timeless light
Voices of angels sing through the night
Miracles and stories, too many to record
Beyond our biggest dreams,
a new realisty unfolds
What a place, what a place, what a wondrous place
What a race, what a race, what a marvellous race
What a sight! What a life!
What a time! What a time to be alive.”
