Invitation to Shri Mataji

To Her Holiness Shri Mataji Nirmala Devi

We, Your children of the world, humbly request Your Divine presence at the auspicious occasion of Shri Kartikeya Puja, on Saturday, 22 July 2023.

We gather together as a global collective, with immense gratitude in our hearts, to offer this Puja at Your Holy Lotus feet.

Shri Mataji, please allow us to perform this Puja to You and adorn You with our love and humble offerings.

Mother, we request Shri Ganesha, our older brother to guide us in this pPja and pray for the blessings of all the Deities.

May the spirit of Shri Kartikeya, which is pure and absolute dynamism, permeate throughout Your creation.

Mother, please bless us with Your Divine Presence.

“The ​spirit of Kartikeya – that pure, absolute dynamism which doesn’t indulge into nonsensical things and useless things; which shows the results.”
Shri Mataji Nirmala Devi

Invitation to World Collective

The Sahaja Yogis of New Zealand would like extend an invitation for the yogis of the world to join us as we offer a Puja to our Holy Mother, Shri Mataji in Her form as Shri Kartikeya. The timing coincides with our national celebration of Matariki, which is translated as ‘the eyes of God’, or a time when a cluster of seven stars appear over New Zealand. Matariki is a special occasion in the New Zealand calendar which marks the start of the Māori New Year. This is a reference to Pleiades, the stary maids, a name of Shri Kartikeya, Shri Krittikasunave.
Jai Shri Mataji

More about Matariki

Matariki is a star cluster that appears in the early morning sky in New Zealand during the mid-winter months.

The star cluster is well known throughout the world and at different times of the year can be seen around the globe. It is one of the brightest clusters in the sky, containing hundreds of member stars.

Matariki has different names around the world. In English, it is called by its ancient Greek name, Pleiades or the Seven Sisters. In Hawaiian it is Makali’i, ‘eyes of royalty’, and in Japan it is Subaru, meaning ‘gathered together’.

The Māori (indigenous New Zealanders) celebrate the coming of the new year at this time. Read more about Matariki.
