Dakshesh Translating

Swami Vishwananda recently appointed Country Coordinators for each country he visits. Swami instructed the Country Coordinators to have at least one meeting a year for all devotees in their country. During September 29 and 30, the first such country meeting was held in Poland, near Warsaw. Perhaps now, other countries will be inspired to obey Swami’s wishes and follow Poland’s lead to begin to have at least one annual meeting of all Swami Vishwananda, Bhakti Marga devotees in their country. Dakshesh, Poland’s Country Coordinator gave a welcoming speech wherein he explained the Country Coordinator instructions of Gurudev.

Swami said, in the Country Coordinator’s instruction meeting, that he wishes each country to have a woman’s group, a youth group and a bhajan group. Gurudev said that the women devotees from each country should organize themselves into a group and choose a leader from among the group.
A Mahavatar Babaji Kalash Puja and Yagna were offered at the venue where this event was held near Warsaw, Poland in a lovely grove of giant elm trees, with acorns of the fall in progress, dropping all around. As one looked through the trees one could see a small lake nearby with wild ducks swimming around. This puja and yagna were beautifully offered by Dakshesh, Poland’s Country Coordinator, and his wife Lilivati. Also, an OM Healing was held each day.

Swamini Vishwalakshmianandama  offered a Satsang speaking about the Divine, Love, Swami Vishwananda, the Country Coordinator instructions of Swami, as explained by Dakshesh, and my spiritual experiences with Swami and Mahavatar. The questions also contained some about these spiritual experiences, which are within my dharma to speak about.
A lovely story from this event: There was a group of young children supervised by a nun, also on the grounds, where the event was held. A young child from this group would stroll by occasionally, followed by others one-by-one.  Eventually, the nun herself rode by on a bicycle to investigate. Perhaps she noticed the very beautiful altar arranged by some of the devotees with many long-stemmed roses, pictures of Swami Vishwananda and Mahavatar Babaji. Also, beside the altar, there was a beautiful, life-sized photo of Swamiji which was taken in Warsaw last year and is portable by rolling smoothly into and out of a carrying tube and stand (also in clear view in the satsang picture). People brought their murtis of Babaji and placed them on the altar to be blessed by the puja and yagna. As often is the case when a Kalash puja is offered, it rained directly after the yagna was finished. Yagnas provide cleansing energy for miles or kilometers around which, in turn, brings a cleansing rain.
