As part of this occasion on 31 August 2008, which was broadcast around the world via satellite and Internet on Channel 3 of the Maharishi Channel, members of the Mother Divine Programme, including students at Maharishi University of Enlightenment, also gave candid, heartfelt answers to a wide range of questions, which were presented by one of the Raj Rajeshwaris.
'Now we're going to hear directly from members of the Mother Divine Programme about what their life is like,' the Raj Rajeshwari said.
Question: Who joins the Mother Divine Programme?
Answer: This is one of the wonderful things about the Mother Divine Programme—there is so much diversity here. Single lady Yogic Flyers come from all over the world; they represent many professions, educational backgrounds, ages, and interests, but there is one focus amongst us all and that is the pursuit of enlightenment*. Some ladies come here for college, some come after college, some stay a little while, some stay forever. It's a wonderful thing to do. In my opinion, it's an essential thing to do at some point in your life.
How long do people usually stay?
Answer: What we have found is that even though some ladies feel they can only stay for a short time—maybe a year—once they have settled into this programme and the bliss is bubbling up, they realize that time passes quickly and they want to experience more, so they just keep staying on. This is not a programme for a short rest and holiday. It offers so much more than that, and we want every lady to have the true deep bliss of Mother Divine.
What is your day like?
Answer: Really my day is a flow of bliss within the structured routine of the day. I love an early morning walk before my long Mother Divine programme [of Transcendental Meditation and Transcendental Meditation Sidhi Programme including Yogic Flying]. Yogic Flying is the high point of my day when bliss just soars through my whole physiology. I love to see my friends at lunch where we have great food! It's fresh, delicious, organic vegetarian food and the meals are balanced. We often have celebrations and fabulous banquets. In summer I love to swim. When I have the opportunity I write songs. Another favorite part of my day is our knowledge meetings. We move easily from one activity to the next throughout the day and this routine makes life very simple and enjoyable. We can just flow throughout the day. This balanced routine puts us on the fast track to enlightenment!
What does it mean to be growing in enlightenment?
Answer: To be knowing day after day more who I really am by experiencing my innermost nature through my Transcendental Meditation and TM-Sidhi programme—and knowing that I am bliss. During the day, I experience more happiness, I enjoy life more, I see my thoughts and desires are more easily fulfilled—but above all I feel more bliss!
What do you do in between your morning and afternoon programmes [of Transcendental Meditation and Transcendental Meditation Sidhi Programme including Yogic Flying] on Mother Divine?
Answer: We have a fabulous programme of activities each day. We naturally bring all our talents and interests to Mother Divine and find that they are used in very stimulating and wonderful projects. Now also all Mother Divine has a thrilling project to bring out the most sacred, pious, brilliant knowledge to the whole world through the Global Mother Divine Organization. We want to help all ladies to nourish every family in every country through this knowledge. The activities of this organization are a beautiful way to share the bliss of Mother Divine. So wherever Mother Divine is in the world, we are global, because we are connected to all l92 countries of our dear world.
Also many Mother Divine are students earning their degrees at Mother Divine's university, Maharishi University of Enlightenment.
*Growth of higher states of consciousness, development of full human potential.
