When it comes to be known that a man of great wisdom and spirit is passing near the secluded village of Dode, the interest of many is stirred.


That great promise and blessing might come from his words is the hope of those who set out to find him.


For Jaedon, a man of simple means, there is a special connection. His name means the one to whom God listens.


Soothsay is the search for truth in a time of great confusion.

Diwali Puja 2016 - Germany – invitation

Dear brothers and sisters from all over the world,

Every year we have the opportunity to unite in worship of our most Holy Mother, Shri Nirmala Devi, in Her Divine form of Shri Mahalakshmi at the auspicious time of Diwali.

In this year 2016, the collectivities of Germany, France, Belgium and Switzerland have the privilege of inviting all their family, from around the world, to celebrate the international Diwali Puja together in Löffingen which is on the borders of Germany, France and Switzerland.

We have just found the seminar location and already we are beginning to experience the joy that comes from the anticipation of such a beautiful event, which we will be able to share with our brothers and sisters from around the world and which is taking place at the crossroads of three nations.

Through our invitation to you all, we bow in prayer to our Divine Mother, Shri Mataji, that Her Holy Attention bless the preparation of this International Puja and the Seminar. Through Shri Mataji's Grace, may the seeds of this Puja give rise to powerful lights within all of us that will destroy ignorance inside and outside ourselves, and may we be established as worthy lotuses in the pond of Her eternal Love.

family below you will find some practical information.

The date:  From Friday 28th to Sunday 30th October
                      Puja will be celebrated on Sunday 

The place:
Löffingen, Germany    

                          (1h15 drive from Zürich, international airport, 
                          1h40 from Strasbourg, 3h from Frankfurt,
                          5h30 from Bruxelles)


For those coming by flight, best is to arrive at EuroAirport Basel-Mulhouse-Freiburg then take the train to the station Titisee-Neustadt. We will arrange a shuttle between Tittisee-Neustadt and the Puja venue. 

We'll soon publish a web site for the registration with the complete information that you may need. In the meantime should you have questions of any order, please write to us at

We do hope that you will be able to attend this auspicious occasion so that all our hearts, beating with the same rhythm, the same strength, and the same devotion may create a song of invitation to Shri Mataji Nirmala Devi for Her Divine Presence in this International Diwali Puja 2016. 

With all our love,
your brothers and sisters
from Germany, Belgium, France & Switzerland

Cabella Newsletter - Our land of peace

From: Sahaja Yoga World Foundation
July 2016
Sahaja School ● Culture of the Spirit ● Art Academy ● Guru Puja ● Wellness

Follow the beauty
These weeks between the Guru Puja and the festival Culture of the Spirit are such a blessed period of the year! The river of Love is at its utmost and overflowing here, in the Yogiland of Cabella, where one is drenched into the vibrations and the joy. Let us all be fully aware of the great chance we have to live together these exceptional moments of bliss! Rather than being blasé, let us all try to feel and follow the tremendous beauty that our Mother is pouring so generously in our lives!
Culture of the Spirit

30 and 31st of July: two intense days of joy, with music and dance everywhere. We are happy that nearly 100 new comers obtained their Self Realization, as this is one of the main purposes of this event. 
We will only mention a few of the very great musicians present here: Anandita Basu and her deep sufi devotional songs, Rachelle Jeanty on beautiful jazzy rhythms, the bansuri master Shaktidhar, the amazing ghatam (anfora) player Giridhar Udupa, Tanya Wells singing sweet ghazals, the well-known Indialucia group playing flamenco fusion and Indian music and of course the divine sounds of the Divine Symphony Orchestra.
Great and beautiful dancers also: Kinga Malec the Kathak, Valeria Vespaziani the Bharatanatyam, Siddhi Basale the Kuchipudi. Filled with wonder, we watched Shaina's
 spectacular performance of Poi fire and we all danced the Bhangra at the end of the festival! Yes, it is all about the flow, being in the flow, dance within the flow...
Guru Puja

On the 17th of July, over 2 000 yogis and yoginis from the four corners of the world celebrated a majestic Shri Guru Puja in our newly transformed temple (originally called the hangar). Two days later we also enjoyed a beautiful Shri Guru Purnima Puja with less participants but with strong vibrations.
Art Academy
One thing is for sure: every yogi(ni) should at least once in life come to the Art Academy and attend some classes. The enthusiastic and great-hearted members of the theatre company TEV (True Eternal Values) again this year offered us  the opportunity to discover or to develop a new talent.
For nearly two weeks, from the 19th until the 28th of July, we could attend a very wide range of courses: different kinds of music, dance, theatre, painting, knitting, breathing technics, ayurvedic massage, aikido, photography, design and so on and so forth, we definitely don't have enough space here to enumerate them all. It is not only about the content of the classes, the generosity and the competence of the volunteering teachers, but also about the subtle interaction between all those present here. There is such a joy, such richness in the exchanges, such beauty in the spontaneous encounters that you may have! But of course, one should experience it to really understand its value!
Wellness Camp

The Wellness Camp continued during the summer until the Guru puja. Yogi(ni)s from different countries in search of an oasis of peace found here a place where they can fortify themselves so that when they go back to their homelands they can spread this energy of love and benefit to all around them. For many of them it was not the first time they were coming. Nor the last...
