People's experiences who have met Nick Burrin

In Delhi, India, August 1989, Shri Mathaji Nirmala Devi cured me from Spasmophilia. Six months later, I discovered Sahaja yoga in France and went to a public program with Shri Mataji at Frankfort University. During the following years Sahaja Yoga changed and became weird to me with so many rituals, unending celebrations like the ones I fled as a child forced to go to church.

On several occasions, I met Shri Mataji as a lawyer and joined Mother visiting properties, as Shri Mataji wanted to buy one in France. My only desire was to stay focused on Shri Mataji even during meetings in Italy, India and the USA.

I haven’t been very interested in participating in the collectivity. The Guru Puja in 2008 was my last one as I couldn’t bear to see Shri Mataji in such a bad state. It was heart breaking and I felt helpless. A few sahaja yogis informed me about Shri Mataji Nirmala Devi ‘s awful mistreatment by her family and we didn’t know what to do. One of us thought to kidnap Shri Mataji and to keep Mother in France, but how could we do this, it was impossible.

At the time we heard Shri Mataji was unwell, the sahaja yogis met to meditate together at my place. Before Shri Mataji passed away, two more miracles happened to me showing, that in fact, Mother would always take care of us.

Someone asked me to join the French Sahaja Yoga committee but it was a fight of power between the groups of people, each of them thinking they knew better. After a very short time I left this crazy committee. In the Autumn of 2013, one sahaja yogini emailed a book script to me saying that I should read it. This was my first discovery of Nick Burrin's book The Absolute Dedicated to Shri Mataji Nirmala Devi. It was such an amazing book to read, I shed many tears. I felt that every sahaja yogi should read Nick Burrin's book The Absolute to know the truth about Shri Mataji and the mistreatment Mother went through.

In December 2013, I wrote to the publisher of Nick Burrin book's and asked if I could translate The Absolute Dedicated To Shri Mataji Nirmala Devi into French. This message was then forwarded to Nick Burrin himself and then on January 11th 2014, Nick Burrin wrote to me. After a few exchanges by emails and Skype, Nick Burrin invited me meet him in England. I was so happy to be meeting Nick in person as he openly spoke about Shri Mataji with such a deep loving and respectful way he was fearless about what could happen by writing the truth about how Shri Mataji was treated particularly in his book The Truth Dedicated To Shri Mataji Nirmala Devi. I admire Nick Burrin's courage and bravery for standing up for Mother and telling the truth. Everyone who cares about Shri Mataji must read Nick's books The Truth.

I met Nick Burrin with a few other people in May and September 2014. He took care of me in such an amazing way and I discovered Nick Burrin had written two other books; Daisy’s Really Are Made In Heaven and Beyond All Doubt is Jerusalem The Golden City Dedicated to Shri Mataji Nirmala Devi.

I then ordered Nick's book Freedom Dedicated To Shri Mataji Nirmala Devi ASAP after it was published but I didn’t receive it quickly, so Nick Burrin kindly sent me a copy. I was so happy and I remember reading and reading Freedom and really feeling who Nick Burrin is, more and more.

In September 2014 Nick Burrin told me to quit my office as my partners were being very unkind to me. Unfortunately I didn’t listen to Nick's advice at that time, ending up in great troubles so I decided in March 2015 to quit the office as within 3 weeks as the situation was unbearable.

Nick Burrin helped me to manage the situation and to deal with the proceedings which finally ended up in my favour. The new office I built was successful but my partner suddenly decided to stop his activity and I had to manage, the situation with my staff, my clients, the premises and rent running for 7 years... and once again Nick Burrin helped me to find all the solutions in a short time.

I have read every book Nick Burrin has written, including Heaven Before Life And Life Before Heaven, The Truth and Silence. During this time, Nick has helped me to get rid of my headaches, cured my panic crisis, made me feel good and happy with myself and in my life.

Recently Nick Burrin accompanied me and found the perfect house for me to live in such a lovely, sunny place. He prevented me from buying the wrong house and also stopped me getting involved in a business that was not right for me. Nick does everything in a normal, straightforward and loving way. Nick teaches us to behave in the same way to be kind, considerate and wanting to understand the world around us and enjoying everyone's creativity. I have learnt so much from Nick Burrin about Shri Mataji, how to work on myself, how to feel and not think, to realise the truth, also so many practical solutions and advice about business and every aspect of life.
