'WE ARE ONE' - BIRTHDAY SONG
A Global Gift for Shri Mataji
The best gift we can offer our Mother is love and unity amongst her children. On the auspicious occasion of Her Centenary Celebrations, with complete humility and surrender, we wish to offer a global gift at the Lotus Feet of our beloved Mother.
The subtle expression of the human spirit - Music - is a language that is universal, bringing brothers and sisters together, beyond boundaries of the mind, and barriers of the heart. We desire to offer the praise of the Creator of the Universe as 'one sanga', promise to fulfil Her vision on Earth and to immerse in the Nirvajya Prema - unconditional love and unity
May we unite our voices as one in song to express the manifestation of Her Vision on this Earth, and reaffirm our desire for unity both within and without. Wherever we may physically be, let us raise our voices and proclaim “We Are One!” and we know, the world will be one. We desire to offer the following -
100th Birthday Song - we will globally offer a song at the Lotus Feet of our Mother, at the location we are attending the 100th Birthday Puja. For all the Yogis coming to India we will collectively offer the song at Nirmal Dham & Chhindwara.
