Report Gurupurnima 2015 Cisternino

Guru Purnima 2015 in Cisternino, Italy,

Gurupurnima 31-07-2015

Gurupurnima 31-07-2015

Under the hot sun of southern Italy we enjoyed a lovely Guru Purnima close to the iddillic village of Cisternino.
This beautiful sunny weather was also a bit much at times while waiting in long lines for the sumptuous, healthy bandara’s which were served. Also during the strong havan’s one had the sensation of being in-between 2 fires, one from above and one from under us.

Havan

But then in the evening aarti’s to sit under a beautiful starry sky in front of the exact copy of the Temple in Herakhan singing together with many devoted hearts raised the spirits to great heights. About 150 people came from all over the world for these 4 wonderful days.

Cisternino

Lots of dust was blowing thru the valley from Cisternino in the past year but full praise for a small group of Phull Singh, Jamman Singh, An Singh and several others who cleaned and painted the whole ashram & Temple. A beautiful garden with vegetables and fruit trees was created this winter and this festival was organized by this small group.

From the very beginning this beautiful ashram there has been controversy against the leadership, whoever it was in the 35 years this place has excited. From the “old” devotees there is nobody left anymore who wants to take the lead. Many devotees live in the valley of Cisternino ( about 100 ) but we saw very of these old friends and not at all for Havan or aarti. This was a sad aspect somehow and many of us could simply not understand how these long time devotees could simply turn their backs on this beautiful ashram in such a festive occasion.

This phenomena can be seen in the world and also in other ashrams ( be it less evident )  of Babaji. Perhaps Babaji’s family in Italy is for us to learn from and keep our focus on what binds us rather then being concentrated on the different ideas we have that separate us. The often announced kranti by Babaji is not only happening outside of us in the world but also takes place inside of us. It is therefor very important that we stay conscious how we behave to others around us as well as in the world around us. At this stage the teachings of Babaji are coming full speed in 4D at us. This can be an heavenly profound teaching but also a hellish experience if we do not learn our lessons.

We did bring the Hawaiian meditation practice of forgiveness called Ho”oponopono to Cisternino. It had some immediate effect but it will need to be sincerely practiced as wounds are deep and old for some. A good practice to do perhaps in all our ashrams after aarti as it takes 5-10 minutes and chafes the focus from blaming the “other” to what is happening inside of us. More explanations of this meditation technic can be found on the internet.

But as I started off in the beginning the mood and spirits where high and it felt great to be there for those who just followed the program. It completely depends on what one is concentrated, on your mind or on your heart.

Bhole Baba ki Jai !
Cisternino Dham ki Jai !

Gurupurnima 31-07-2015

Dear Brothers and sisters

‘Guru’ in Sanskrit is translated as ‘dispeller of darkness’.Guru dispels the darkness of ignorance of his disciple and leads him on the path of enlightenment. Gurupurnima is the day when the disciple offers his gratitude to the guru and receives his blessings.
 
Gurupurnima is celebrated on The Full Moon Day in the month of Ashadha (July- August). This day also signifies the very first transmission of the Science of Yoga by ‘Shiva’ , the Adiyogi or the First Yogi, to the Saptarishis, the seven celebrated sages.
 
May Shree Babaji lead us all from darkness to light.
 
Wish you all a very blessed Gurupurnima 2015.
 

Bhole Baba ki Jai
Munirajji Ki Jai

With warm regards & good wishes,

Alok Banerjee
Chairman
