Dining with the Divine
Over the last few four or five months my partner and I have been growing steadily more interested in the enlightened mystic Mahadevi and what is happening around her. By the end of August this year we both felt that we wanted to be involved and that we should make a trip out to Berlin and see what would happen from there. At this point we had only been keeping track through Mahadevi’s website and the posts there but had not read her book.
We flew to Berlin after contacting the team members using the e-mail addresses available there. We were welcomed warmly and quickly a meeting with Mahadevi was arranged. The time came around for our meeting and Mahadevi arrived fashionably late and gracefully greeted us with “Namaste”. Other team members were invited to be there and we had a beautiful evening sipping mint tea and trying a range of dark chocolates (Mahadevi’s favourite sweet). When Mahadevi heard that I play an instrument she was very excited and I was immediately asked to play. She explained that music is very important to her and that it plays a major role in what is and what will happen around her. She spoke about music to me and I must admit I remember nothing of what she said I remember just her big brown eyes, a feeling of waves passing over me and the beauty of the moment. The evening carried on and we all exchanged jokes (mostly Osho’s), stories and I was requested to play again. When the time came for Mahadevi to leave she enquired how long we would be staying in Berlin, she then sweetly invited herself for dinner the following evening and promised to bring salad.
The second night there were more friends invited to share dinner and company. A young artist had brought his guitar so we played together for awhile and we all had a great time. Again we shared jokes (Mahadevi is very fond of jokes) and Mahadevi told us a story of hers about a drugged Pundit who destroyed a Pan Shop display table because he liked the colour of the cloth. At the end of the evening Mahadevi left us with a warm and loving hug but more than that she left an impression in our hearts and as a result we are both now actively involved.
To be with an enlightened one is an experience that cannot be brought into words but only lived. There in Berlin is an opportunity to experience this. Mahadevi is giving Darshan on Sundays, answering questions and guiding seekers. She is also holding her meditative therapy “Return to the Womb” regularly.
If anybody is interested in going to Berlin, getting involved from Britain or purchasing Mahadevi’s book then please do not hesitate to contact us at email@example.com or go to Mahadevi’s website www.mahadevi.info.
