International Marriages
To be held at Cabella September 2022

Dear Family,

Jai Shri Mataji!

Please find below a message from the International Marriage Committee (IMC) announcing the process for marriage applications this year. With marriages being performed in Cabella at Shri Ganesha Puja in September 2022.

As per the message below, applications will be via an online marriage portal this year. There is a link below to a detailed Portal Applicant Guide. At a high level, the applicant steps are as follows:

  • Talk to one of the Councillors in your state about applying and your readiness for marriage in Sahaja Yoga;
  • If the Councillor agrees you are ready to apply, they will arrange for you to access the portal and you will receive an email invitation to apply;
  • After receiving the invitation email, access the marriage portal by setting your password and registering as an applicant;
  • Fill the marriage form and within the form you will nominate the Councillor who invited you to the portal to complete your Feedback Form;
  • The Councillor will complete the applicant Feedback Form and pass it to the National Coordinator for approval;
  • On approval, the Form is submitted to the IMC for potential matching.

Please note, applications are due by 1 July 2022.

Also below, is a link to a Sahaja Marriages Principles and Protocols document. Please read this before commencing the application process and make a self-assessment of your readiness for a Sahaj marriage at both a practical and a spiritual level. The marriage vows are included on pages 15 and 16.

If there are any Yogis with a desire for a Sahaja remarriage, please see a Councillor in your state. This will still be a manual form process.

All the very best to the applicants in this important step of your Sahaja life.

Kind Regards,

Dear Brothers and Sisters,

Jai Shri Mataji!

By Mother’s Grace, we are very happy to announce that we are initiating the Sahaja Marriages activities for this year 2022, with the ultimate desire to perform Sahaja Marriages on the most auspicious occasion of Shri Ganesha Puja in Cabella, on the 4th September 2022.

APPLICATION PROCESS

During the past years, especially last year with the global travel restrictions, we have been informed of difficulties, for yogis and yoginis in several parts of the world, to meet physically and get local and country coordinators’ signatures, to then scan and send signed forms to the IMC. Collection of required additional documentation (e.g., divorce papers, health documents) also has been a difficulty. Moreover, the IMC members often had to retype all the handwritten data received in the pdfs in a readable format, and for a continuously increasing number of applicants.

For this reason, an IMC Marriage Portal has been built, to manage the Sahaja Marriage Form submission and the approval process for all applicants. The Portal aims to digitize only those activities. The matching process through vibrations taking remains the same as before, according to the principles that Shri Mataji taught us.

The Portal is built on a business grade platform to guarantee maximum security and confidentiality.

The Portal is by invitation basis only, i.e., no applicant can self-register, but they need to be referred by the country coordinator or a delegate from coordinator/council in charge for marriages.

In the attached materials you can find all information about the marriage process and about the Marriage Portal.

Please refer to your country coordinator or marriage team to know the process in place for your collective.

2022 IMPORTANT DATES

Application forms will be accepted by IMC until the 1st of July 2022 through the Marriage Portal.

The matching process will take place in the Castle at the Holy Lotus Feet of Shri Mataji as usual, with remote participation by the IMC members who won’t be able to travel. We are still defining the date of matching and announcements and we’ll update you as soon as we have news.

Marriages will take place during Shri Ganesha Puja weekend, on the 4th of September 2022.
