There was an air of excitement in the Borbera Valley leading up to the Vishnumaya Puja, the World Festival, Ganesha Puja and the marriages. There were yogis from everywhere arriving. Potential brides and grooms, parents and friends as well as a great contingent of our Indian brothers and sisters were all coming together to worship our Holy Mother and enjoy each other for 10 days. It felt like the old Ganapatipule days where we could experience the extent and diversity of our Sahaj family.
Special thanks to the enormous efforts and great teamwork of the Hosting Countries and the kitchen teams during all our September events. They were experienced as serene, peaceful and joyful beyond expectations.
One of the strongest impressions felt at the beginning of this time was after the Vishnumaya Havan early the first morning. It was a feeling of great clarity and lightness. The air seemed clear and had a sparkle to it. As everyone dispersed to breakfast after the Havan, the faces of the yogis were also reflecting this clarity and brightness.
No doubt the great power in the names of Vishnumaya had an effect but maybe it was also the culmination of the Krishna Puja and the amazing Love America Tour resulting in a clearing of the Vishuddhi chakra of the world that was palpable after this Havan. There was a deep joy and collective maturity in our witnessing powers.
This ability to witness allows us to cope with composure and dignity. There were dramas large and small during this time, as there can be whenever there is a great gathering of people, but somehow the overall serenity of the collective was never disturbed.
