"Angels are born like angels. There are angels. And they are not human beings. They are born with the angelic qualities. But now, you all have become angels from the human beings. It's a very great achievement of Sahaja Yoga."

Shri Hanumana Puja, 23rd April 1989, Margate, UK

On Saturday, the 14th of October, the Divine blessed us with what is now a rare opportunity. Shri Mataji and Sir CP decided to go shopping, to buy shoes and other accessories.  Shri Mataji led us on a magical journey through the shoe shops of the West End of London. In each one Shri Mataji pointed to many different types of shoes and handbags, touching many to assess the quality of the leather and craftsmanship. Yogis brought different examples of merchandise from all corners of each shop for Her to see and touch. She looked at each item carefully, felt the leather, enquired about the price and discussed with Sir CP the relative merits of each. Sir CP was keen to buy his beloved Wife a gift, but for quite some time She was unable to find anything that suited Her. Throughout the shopping trip, as you can see in the photos, Shri Mataji made endless jokes and humorous comments about the various styles of merchandise and their prices.

Friday 13th October

A Most Auspicious Arrival

Across huge swathes of the World, “Friday 13th” is supposed to be an unlucky day !
A day best avoided – better not risk getting out of bed !
But here in the U.K., this year, Friday 13th October 2006 feels like a very special day indeed !........
It’s October in England – not a time of year normally noted for its summery climate ! And all week it has been English Autumn signature weather, coolish, dullish, greyish, cloudyish, rainyish, with gusty winds, - ah yes, you know you are at home and it’s Autumn once again…. For a couple of days it’s been raining non-stop, quintessentially England in October ….as you hide beneath your umbrella and squelch along the street, rain dripping from every corner, pouring down the pavements, bubbling along the road….But when it’s over there is no doubt everything does look very nice and clean….

And this morning, early, it’s misty, a grey mist;… foggy, a grey fog….On the T.V
early – morning news they warn of the dangers of fog - but they tell us it might lift……Well you know what, I would be willing to bet it just might…..
Here we go….10 o’clock, fog is gone… 11o’clock and Good Morning Sunshine!!!….
11.30 and the sky is the highest, bluest, brightest you could ever hope to see, streaked only with the occasional beautiful, delicate and wispy cloud in some artful design – clearly there for decoration only. Go outside by 12 noon and it’s hot, hot hot,….
sunglasses at the ready – this suddenly feels like India….
Yes, you can’t miss it ….Something Special is happening, for Somebody Very Special is coming home today…….
Shri Mataji arrives, together with Sir C.P., at London airport after a long transatlantic flight – radiant, beaming, looking as fresh as a Daisy. Smiling joyously and greeting all the delighted Sahaja Yogis there to welcome their Beloved Mother. There is happiness and joy all round. Into the cars which are laden with a precious cargo of hundreds and hundreds of flowers offered with love by young and old, and home.
