Spirit of Gandhi

Celebration of 144th birth anniversary in Tupelo!

We have about couple of dozen photographs of Gandhi and a few of his quotes that gives spiritual insight into the legend that is a living inspiration to us all.

Gandhi himself said, “What a great thing it would be if we in our busy lives could restore into ourselves each day for at least a couple of hours and prepare our minds to listen to the voice of the great silence. The divine radio is always singing if we could only make ourselves ready to listen to it, but it is impossible to listen without silence.”

We have a small corner where we helped people who were interested to feel this inner silence. We had several people from different walks of life who came over to the exhibition. A few just sat and watched the Gandhi movie for a while. The most popular part of the exhibition for the kids was the depiction of the salt march near the seashore at Dandi.

Please join us between 10 and 4 at Lee County Library to celebrate a legend tomorrow again!

Say ‘No’ to Drugs, Turn To Sahaja Yoga for Help – Times of India

Thursday, February 8th, 2007

This is a nice article explaining how to combat addiction issues with Sahaja Yoga. It has introduced the concept of spiritual quotient, SQ. Never thought of it before but it makes complete sense as it is an important part of our well being.

My uncle was cured of alcoholic addiction because of Sahaja Yoga. This is what happened. Shri Mataji was visiting Mumbai. Because of electricity outage, her luggage could not be delivered to her apartment. So, her luggage was kept at my uncle’s place in his room. That evening, he sat down for his usual drinking session but he just couldn’t drink. He quit drinking that evening.

Mountain

Saturday, January 6th, 2007

By: H.H. Shri Mataji Nirmala Devi This is a poetry Shri Mataji wrote in Cabella watching the mountain from the room. It is truly touching and joy giving …

I see a mountain from my window
Standing like an ancient sage
Desireless, full of love.
So many trees and so many flowers
They plunder the mountain all the time.
It’s attention is not disturbed
And when the rain pours like
Many pitchers of clouds bursting
And it fills the mountain with greenery. (more…)

Dust

By: H.H. Shri Mataji Nirmala Devi

I want to be smaller,
Like a dust particle
Which moves with the wind
It goes everywhere,
can go,
Sit on the head of a king
Or can go
And fall at the feet of someone
And it can go
And sit everywhere
But I want to be a particle of dust
That is fragrant,
That is nourishing
That is enlightening.

To my flower children

By: H.H. Shri Mataji Nirmala Devi

You are angry with life
Like small children
Whose Mother is lost in Darkness
You sulk expressing despair
At the fruitless end of your journey
You wear Ugliness to discover Beauty
You name everything false in the name of Truth
You drain out emotions to fill the cup of Love
My sweet children, my darling
How can you get peace by waging war
With yourself, with your being, with joy itself (more…)
