It all started with a rakhi being sent from Austria to Cabella, as the symbol of ONE WORLD, for Sri Mataji on 1st August. That very day we received news about Mother’s desire to come to Her house in Austria. The news was received with great joy and reverent prayers that nothing would change the course of Her coming to Austria.
