Shri Mataji leaves Pratishthan Pune – 17 April 2008
Shri Mataji and Sir C.P. left Pratishthan for Mumbai this afternoon. This current trip to India has been for nearly half a year. It had begun with a couple of months stay in Delhi/NOIDA, arrival to Pune via Mumbai and Vashi Hospital, stay in Pune for nearly four months and an interim visit to Chhindwara for the birthday Puja. This was a very joyful and divine visit for all in which She blessed everyone with many Pujas and ‘Darshans’ (divine appearances).
At Pratishthan, in the morning itself, Sahaja Yoginis drew beautiful Rangoli decorations on the pathway leading from the end of the house to where Shri Mataji’s vehicle is parked under its hangar. Arches with flower decorations were also put up on the path. Pratishthan bore a very festive look.
Around 2 pm Aarti was performed to Shri Mataji. Flower laded trays were brought before Mother. Shri Mataji appreciated the flowers by smelling them. Flower bouquets were placed at Her Holy Lotus Feet. Perfume was applied to Her wrists. She then left to board Her vehicle. Shri Mataji acknowledged all who had come to bid Her farewell and then left for Mumbai Airport. She took the evening flight for Dubai from Mumbai.
