As a follow-up to the pilgrimage I organized in India on December 2, 2016, I propose you a trip to Poland. The land of Poland has suffered for many centuries after its disappearance several times from the map of Europe. Napoleon I had tried to reestablish it by creating the great duchy of Warsaw, which did not survive its defeat since Russia at that time had annexed the country again. The unbroken link between France and Poland since then has been steadily strengthened after the First World War following its rehabilitation as a nation.
This pilgrimage will be placed under the symbol the fight against oppression in all its forms and so that freedom can live.
Meher Baba said that everyone will have the opportunity to free themselves in their own way according to their needs and possibilities. It is now time to free ourselves from the dead forms of the past which hinder the free expression of pure love and so that this love grows in freedom.
The program (August 25 to September 5) as follows:
Departure for Lodz, August 28. Visit of Lodz. (1 night). (In that city the first Jewish ghetto was created, and there is also the largest Jewish cemetery in Europe).
Departure for Czestochowa, August 29. Visit of Czestochowa (2 nights). In that city the most important Pilgrimages dedicated to the Virgin Mary Mother of God and Queen of Poland are held. Here crowds come to gather from the whole world. August 29, 30.
Departure for Krakow August 31st. Visit of Krakow. August 31 – September 3 (3 nights).
Day-trip to Auschwitz (Oswiecim), September 1st. Visit of the Auschwitz’ and Birkenau’ camps (gathering and prayers). Return to Krakow in the evening.
Return to Warsaw September 3.(2 nights)
Return to France, September 5.
The highlight of this pilgrimage is the visit of the Czestochowa’s sanctuary located at the top of the Jasna Gora’s hill which translates as "the luminous mountain". The monastery of the Paulins Brothers houses an icon of the black virgin, offered by the Duke of Opole in 1382 and revered by the whole nation. The Virgin Mary of Czestochowa Mother of God and Queen of Poland is the symbol of this struggle against oppression.
