Posted by the Central Committee & filed under Communications.
Point 1 – 2012 International Puja Schedule

Shri Mataji granted Pujas all around the world, spreading vibrations and blessings to all and allowing many more disciples to participate in these celebrations. The national coordinators agreed to renew with this glorious tradition. This communication provides the tentative schedule of Pujas for 2012 after consultation and feedback with interested parties:

Proposed Pujas location
  • Shri Shiva Puja
  • The Americas
  • Birthday Puja
  • India ( expected location is Chindwara)
  • Easter Puja

  • 19/02 Sunday
  • Birthday
  • 21/03 Wednesday (18/03 Sunday
    alternatively, to be checked with host country)
  • Sahasrara
  • 06/ Sunday (06/05 is also Shri Buddha Purnima. Consequently should a Buddha Puja be hosted in Asia, the date should correspond with another important celebration date in the life of Shri Buddha)
  • Adi Shakti
  • 03/06 Sunday (full moon on the fourth)
  • Guru
  • 01/07 Sunday
  • Krishna
  • 12/08 Sunday (Cabella Festival begins)

  • Diwali

  • Christmas
  • 25/12 Tuesday (23/12 Sunday alternatively to be checked with host country)

The confirmation of dates will be communicated in due time (the exact time of the Pujas in Cabella shall be reviewed with the Foundation). It is expected that the hosting countries of respective Pujas in Cabella and elsewhere may wish to liaise with other countries on the list of Puja hosting countries that could be in a position to co host a Puja with them in a spirit of solidarity.
A list of hosting countries at the time Shri Mataji supervised such arrangements will also be provided. We invite all those in position to do so to join these celebrations.

Point 2 – Identification of an “Official” Sahaj holidays

Following requests from yogis, we would like to propose that the 21st of March be taken as a “official” Sahaj holiday by all sahaja yogis and yoginis across the world. This would be a powerful opportunity to create a space of serenity, meditation and celebration on the most auspicious occasion of the birth of Shri Mataji.

Point 3 – Information on the creation of the Nirmala Vidya LLC under NIPC (Delaware USA) and support to Devi Production (Vienna Austria)

We encourage the efforts of an international team of yogis working with NIPC and the Foundation to install a light structure replacing the former Commercial Unit of the Foundation with a view to provide a reliable source of access to the knowledge of Shri Mataji.

Her teachings shall be available freely on a streaming basis. We invite all yogis and yoginis to support our common interest in preserving, sharing and defending as needed the knowledge of Shri Mataji. We recall that voluntary contributions to preserve and share the knowledge of Shri Mataji will depend on the sense of responsibility and generosity of each members of the sangha and is confident that the yogis and yoginis shall respond to this necessary call for support.

Point 4 – Work of the Publication Committee of the Foundation

We support the work of the Committee to edit and release the unfinished book of Shri Mataji and kindly request the yogi and yoginis not to make this work freely available on the web as they should take into consideration that this was definitely not the intention of its author. We further approve the emerging project of the Publication Committee of the Foundation to work on an annotated biographic chronology of Shri Mataji.

With respectful regards and best wishes,
The members of the Central Committee
