El Morya's Garden
Celebrating the Sangha and the Can-Do Spirit!
By Rev. Elena Nicholson
At a service dedicated to the 14th anniversary of the Ascension of Lanello, on February 28, 1987, Mother said that Lanello was the ascended master who was necessary for addressing all issues related to Russia. Here are her words:
“Lanello was embodied as the czarevitch, the last of the Romanovs. When his father abdicated his own office to the Bolsheviks, he also abdicated on behalf of his son, which he had no right or authority to do, and therefore declared forever that the Romanovs had no right to rule Russia. So, as I was contemplating Lanello, I realized that he was the ascended master who has the authority over Russia today.”
Surprisingly, just when we decided to hold a seminar on the Guru-Chela relations and on our beloved guru Lanello, we were made aware of the above quote of our guru as the sponsor of Russia and the call to Lanello that Mother gave 28 years ago.
This year we celebrated the 42nd anniversary of the ascension of our beloved Mark Prophet, which is also the end of the third 14-year cycle of the initiations of the 14 Stations of the Cross since his ascension.
The Russian seminar In the Heart of the Guru took place from August 13 to August 22, 2015 in Slyudorudnik, a village in the Chelyabinsk region. It is near the city of Yekaterinburg, where our beloved messengers spent the last minutes of their lives in their previous incarnations. It is also near the town where they develop nuclear weapons, which was very important for our demagnetization of Russia from nuclear weapons, which we did on Saturday August 15.
Slyudorudnik is a small village surrounded by the Ural Mountains with beautiful lakes on one side and a forest on the other. During the seminar, we spent two days enjoying this beautiful area, walking in the forest and climbing the mountain, which had a natural spring and a cave.
The seminar lasted 10 days. Eighty people attended, most of them from nearby regions. We stayed in cottages with a view over the lake. One house had two big rooms. We held the event in one of them and the other was for dining.
The seminar was really great, especially that it was the first one that we did on our own. It was well-organized and everybody helped each other. Volunteers worked to prepare food in the kitchen, clean dishes and organize morning, afternoon and evening decree sessions. Everything was done by our own members.
The seminar was conducted by me, Vadim Dolgochub, Irina Savva and Yuri Gorchakov. The program was quite busy. It started every morning with exercise and Tai Chi. From 7 to 8 am was a decree session then breakfast, and the lessons started at 9 am. Every day we played wonderful lectures and darshan with the messenger on the guru-chela relationship.
We also had leadership presentations, lectures by Mother on the incarnations of Lanello and dictations by Mother Mary, El Morya, Lord Maitreya, Gautama Buddha, Uriel and Aurora, Kuthumi and Saint Germain. Four people were baptized.
Our workshop highlighted three main themes: the Guru-Chela relationship, the incarnations of Lanello and Servant Leadership. Although at first they seemed like very different topics, they all blended with one another and led us to understand that we cannot fulfill our mission without the help of the Guru.
During the whole seminar, we constantly felt the presence of our beloved messengers, Guru Ma and Lanello and other Ascended Masters. It is a great blessing to have such a wonderful guru as Lanello. To learn more about him, we studied five of his outstanding incarnations: Aesop, Saladin, Louis XIV, Bonaventure and Longfellow. At the end of the workshop, we talked about his last incarnation as the guru Mark Prophet, as he brought to life the many gifts of his causal body gained in previous incarnations.
After listening to each lecture, we broke into groups or discussed the material with a neighbor to help to remember the material better. Then we went one step further. We formed five groups, and each group had to present a play about what they had learned in the seminar, including the embodiments of Lanello. This was a very creative group of Keepers. Some scenes included poems that the members wrote and some used music. In the photos, you can see some of the scenes from Aesop, Saladin, finding of Christ Consciousness and bringing souls to Heaven. It was a lot of fun and everyone enjoyed it very much.
For the demagnetization we prepared a map of Russia with known nuclear stations and places where they develop nuclear weapons. We also had the astrology done for this, and people watched a movie about the developing of nuclear weapons in Russia. Our Russian Keepers were very devoted in doing this demagnetization work.
For the Russian people it was a very special seminar. Many noted the cohesive and harmonious work of the organizers. They also enjoyed the selection of material and thought it was a dynamic and touching seminar. Everyone likes to work together in a performance. It opened many new talents.
On Sunday I conducted a Sunday Service in the morning, which included the dictation by Lanello “Taking Responsibility for Being God on Earth” from December 27, 1981. In this dictation, Lanello said:
“I pray that you ascend to the scale of your own Christ consciousness. I pray that you become more than you are–the more that is God! And I pray that you realize that you are more in this moment than meets your own eye.
“You need only speak my name, Lanello, and you will instantly have a ray from my heart that connects you to some vast portion, some noble stature of grandeur of your own true cosmic being!”
Let us remember his words! Now that we know that Lanello helps Russia, we can make the calls to our beloved Guru about Russia, about our organization and for the passing all our initiations God-Victoriously!
This is great!
