For most premies around the world, Guru Maharaj Ji's 17th birthday this December 10th, was a lesson in omnipresence. Maharaj Ji and Durga Ji spent a quiet day together at the Los Angeles Residence. The Sunday before, Durga Ji escorted Maharaj Ji to a surprise pre-birthday celebration aboard the Queen Mary, attended by nearly a thousand premies.
In Denver, it was a different story. A huge party was planned, and then cancelled at the last moment when it was learned that Maharaj Ji would still be in L.A. Then the party was on again: the premies decided that whether Maharaj Ji came or not, there was still cause for celebration. And even though Maharaj Ji didn't come, there was a feeling, sweeping through the premies, that He was there all the time.
