CHHINDWARA, (Madhya Pradesh) - INDIA
19 TO 21 March 2018

"We have to think of all those today, who are away from us, thousands of miles, praying to God Almighty for their spiritual ascent. ...... You have to decide that we have to ascend spiritually within ourselves. Everything that you have to receive, all the blessings that God wants to shower upon you, to make you the citizens of great kingdom, where you are no more judged, you are no more chastised, you are no more put to any test, where you have to reside in Eternal life of God and His glory."

H.H.Shree Mataji 21-03-1983 Sydney.

"If money had brought every kind of happiness, you'd have found the world very much better. It's only the spiritual wealth that gives you that joy, for others and for yourself. So let us now decide to have our self knowledge, because this power of kundalini is of pure desire. All desire that you have are not pure. Today you want to buy a car. Once you have the car, you don't enjoy it, you want to have a house. It your desires were pure, you would have been satisfied, but you are never satisfied, because matter cannot give you satisfaction. So this is the pure desire we have within us: whether you know it or not."

Shri Mataji Nirmala Devi 12-07-1994 at Paris

It is nice that you are celebrating my birthday with such enthusiasm, and so much happiness. So nice to see all this, and I want you all to be my decorations! In the whole world they should see that you are my children and that you are of such great values and such great understanding. You are my children. I have really worked for you, in the sense that every moment of my life, I have thought of you: I wanted to work it out in such a beautiful manner that you become really good people, ideal people, special people, with understanding. So, that is the day you should feel that your birthday is being celebrated. When you have completely cleared out, you have become nirmal, absolutely pure personality of love – that’s the day is your birthday, and mine too!

Shri Mataji Nirmala Devi., 21 March 2001



Our holy mother is calling all the children to celebrate her incarnation with the aim of well being and spiritual growth of the children. Therefore, come and let us jointly together celebrate the Birth Day Puja of our beloved divine mother at the holy birth place, Chhindwara.

In the year 1923 on 21st March at 12 noon, The Adi Shakti, incarnated in Chhindwara in Central India. Overnight the soil of Chhindwara became pious and started receiving the Param Chaitnya through the touch of Her Holy Lotus Feet. Being the first place to receive the Param Chaitnya, Chindwara has become the most important peetha from where vibrations are constantly being emitted. During her last visit to Chhindwara for blessing the Birth Day Puja 2008, she blessed the Shiv Parvat, Linga.

Shiv Parvat, a small place, where the availability of water was scanty, has now plentiful of vibrated water.
The vibrations can be experienced by us in the Birth Place (shrine) or Linga Ashram. This Holy land now calls you to celebrate the 95 th Birthday of The Adi Shakti.

With Her Divine Grace, the Indian collectivity, invites you to join us at Chhindwara (near Nagpur) in Madhya Pradesh, for celebrating this Great event. The celebration will enhance the divine vibrations and help to guide us and lead all the seekers in Sahaja to the ultimate Truth.

With our Deepest Regards, Love and Respects,

Chhindwara has a subtropical climate. Like most of north India it has a hot dry summer (April–June) followed by monsoon rains (July– September) and a cool and relatively dry winter. Average annual rainfall is 1,183 mm. Minimum temperature during winter is 4 to 6 degree Celsius while maximum temperature during summer is 38 to 42 degree Celsius.

The train from Nagpur takes around 6 hours (13:00, 16:00 & 22:30 departures, all with Sleeper Class), however it's a meter gauge line and is not very comfortable. There are bus Services at every hour from Nagpur to Chhindwara, and it takes just around 3 hours.
