50th Anniversary
On the 5th May 2020, we are commemorating the 50th Anniversary of the opening of the Sahasrara chakra and the beginning of a universal leap forward for mankind. A hearty congratulations to all the countries and people actively practicing Sahaja Yoga and being part of this momentous movement.
As we celebrate this important milestone we actually celebrate our very own spiritual awakening.
H.H.Shri Mataji Nirmala Devi has given self realization (the Atma Sakshatkar) to hundreds and thousands over more than 100 countries across the globe through the unique method of Sahaja Yoga.

Experience of the opening of the Sahasrara as narrated by H.H.Shri Mataji Nirmala Devi at Nargol in India
"It is a great day for all of us, the seekers, that the last work of the Divine, of opening the last centre in the Great Primordial Being, was done on the 5th of May 1970. It is the greatest event of all the spiritual happenings of the Universe. It was done with very great care and great adjustments.
It is not in the limits of human understanding, how things are worked in the heavens. It is your fortune and God's love that has worked out this wondrous miracle. Without this happening, there could not have been a possibility to give mass realisation to people. One could have done it for one or two persons here and there, but to give such a mass awakening could not have been possible."

Renewed Website of Shri Mataji.org
Every Place, Every Moment and Every Person She blessed with Her Divine presence and attention, blossomed into a higher consciousness.

"ShriMataji.org" was concieved a little over 10 years ago and presented to
H.H.Shri Mataji Nirmala Devi and blessed by Her for bringing Her Life, Work and Vision to the global public audience. We are happy today to commemorate the 50th Anniversary of the Opening of the Sahasrara in Sahaja Yoga with a new release of "ShriMataji.org" which gives a chronological insight into this historic event and the blossoming of Sahaja Yoga which followed.
Many may recall the travels and Sahaja Yoga tours to far fetched places with our Dearest Mother spreading Self Realisation and enriching oneself with deepening experiences of meditation and enlightenment. The new release of the website now integrates many new technical features (like device responsiveness, EU-GDPR conformance, safe browsing etc.) and is currently being translated into dozens of languages allowing us to once again cherish those enchanting moments. Currently this site is being launched with the language versions which are ready. Many more languages will be added in the course of this year and coming years.

We are currently working very hard on the new release of the website and expect it to be online worldwide by the 5th of May.

First Book of H.H.Shri Mataji Nirmala Devi’s speeches
Many of the Sahaja yogis around the world know the miraculous story of how the most famous publishers in Italy, the Rizzoli, contacted the Italian yogis last year, showing great interest in publishing a book about H.H.Shri Mataji Nirmala Devi. This year, on May 5th, the Rizzoli publishing will launch the book ‘’Sahaja Yoga, la via spontanea alla Realizzazione del Sé”, a selection of twelve public speeches given by H.H.Shri Mataji Nirmala Devi chosen from over four thousand lectures held around the world.

On their website, they write: “H.H.Shri Mataji Nirmala Devi, also known as "Great Mother", cannot be described in words, but by reading her speeches and practicing the experience she proposed, one can perceive the essence of her nature and the depth of her message.”

Castle Renovation Update
It is with great joy that the World Foundation announces the completion of restoration works to the lower entrance floor in H.H.Shri Mataji Nirmala Devi’s holy Castle in Cabella.
The newly restored rooms are ready to be experienced by all Sahaja Yogis.

The original frescos were brought back to life by skilful artists; the electrical system has been completely reconfigured; a highly advanced heating system has been implemented for a low energy consumption and maximum efficiency; only high quality natural materials have been chosen for the renderings and finishings of the walls and vaults; historical hand made tiles were chosen for the floors.

We would like to thank all yogis that, with their donations and physical, emotional and spiritual contributions, made this transformation possible for present and future generations to visit and enjoy.
As with all great works, the scope of the improvements and maintenance of this beloved building is very broad, so there is plenty still do…
News from Cabella International Sahaj School
Like many children all over the world, the students of Cabella International Sahaja School are studying from home, with online support. Teacher, staff and children meditate online together once a week – meditations led by the children from their homes, our "Cabella School branches" around the world.
At Easter, we all worked around the theme “Rebirth”. Here are some contributions of the children:
“Easter is the time when Kundalini starts to shine
Easter is the time filled with blessings divine
It is when love takes over your whole heart
It is when the world of joy makes a start
Dvija means rebirth
When you find out why you are on earth.”
Ananya, class 5

With the staff and children, we also prepared a small online exhibition which we are happy to share with you:

Sahaja Calendar
For many years, the World Foundation has been printing a Sahaj Calendar, with a selection of 12 images of H.H.Shri Mataji Nirmala Devi, one for each month, with different photos year by year.
This calendar starts on May 1st and ends on April 30th of the following year, following the principle that Sahaja Yoga began in May 1970.
It has been a tradition to offer the new calendar at the Lotus Feet of H.H.Shri Mataji Nirmala Devi every spring. She always expressed herself with much joy in receiving it and also gave us useful advice in choosing Her images.
This year, the WF is pleased to share with you the edition 2020/2021. You can download it and print it as you wish, share it and enjoy it.
