A tour in Armenia

By Cleopatra David

A small country in Transcaucasia, the first Christian state in the history, following the ancient Urartu, Armenia has charmed our views and hearts this summer. We were there a group of volunteers and one professional artist touring and willing to share the light of Sahaja Yoga and universal cultural values with the inhabitants of this land.

There are lots of stories to tell and lots of experiences to describe: the tourist part, the multicultural programmes we had, the human contact, the spiritual life and the vibration reality.

The first stop was in Gyumri, where some of us traveled with the train from Yerevan. The landscape was rather poor, except for seeing for a while far away the Ararat Mountains. But various birds as storks, bee-eaters or hawks are embellishing our sight.

The most impressive place was Goris, surrounded by mountains and interesting rock shapes that we believe they might be swayambhus.

Not far away from here the Wings of Tatev cableway took us from  Halidzorand to the Tatev monastery in Armenia.

Tatev monastery hosted here the one of the most important Armenian medieval universities.

All the way the Caucasus Mountains showed to us simplicity and majesty. Rocky and arid mountains and very little places where forest can have roots.

Yerevan was the last stop with its majestic buildings, clean and elegant streets in the centre, and stunning collection at History Museum. Couldn't resist the temptation to visit Yerevan radio, famous in the jokes from URRS times. we saved a day for Garni, where we could see the temple, the Symphony of Stone and take a bath in the ice cold river.

The pictures will tell more

About the human and sahaj experience, we learnt a lot. The most important, that the connection in Sahastrara works better than any plans, that the honest desire and confidence work and that there is no such a thing as "too much" "too complicated" or "religious conditioning". The work is alive and it is done by the divine power if we are correctly tuned with it. If we are trying to fit this within the borders of our petty minds, than things become artificial, than we start either blaming ourselves for not being good enough, either the people for having conditioning or lack of appetite for knowledge, either the Sahaja Yoga itself.  

In many cases, the local artists and children who sing and play traditional music were joining  our programmes. And this created bonds between the countries participating.

No, it was not all joyful and perfect, but it was a useful experience and a gain for this country.

The vibrations of Armenia are not easy. They recently had a revolution about which the international media kept complete silence. It was difficult to cross Agnya and go into meditation. Only after returning to Romania I could fix this problem properly. Also left void was to be felt.

Let's all pay attention for developing of Sahaja Yoga in this country, People are eager for knowledge and sahaj experience. They also need a place to learn, even this place is online. This country has only five young girls as collectivity. Let's help them in all the way possible

Saint George Bay

by Anne Marie Ene

Today 23 april we celebrate Saint George birth. In the Romanian language he is called Saint Gheorghe. There are many legends about him and everybody knows he is the patron of England, but I think less known is that Saint George is the patron of Beirut too. It is said that Saint George killed the dragon in Beirut, before the dragon could kill the daughter of the Emperor. The place where the dragon lived it is believed to be Bay of Beirut called The Saint George Bay. It is said that about 30 minutes drive from the slaying site there is a cave where Saint George washed his spear and that the waters in the cave have miraculous power for some ill children.
  Some Muslims call him Al-Khadr.
It seems that the well from where the Dragon used to come out is now in the playground or a Muslim primary school and that the ground where the dragon was slain is near the school and the Crusaders built a chapel over the spot and since 17 th century the place alternates between a chapel and a mosque.
While in Beirut, last December (2017) some Romanian friends took me there, to the Beirut Bay, for a walk.  I did not know why I felt so joyous. At that time I had no idea about all this. Tonight I told my friends from Beirut about Saint George Bay and they where surprised,they had no idea about this!

Here are some photos from that evening
