The “Bellavista Agri Camping Farm” is a farming project initiated by the World Foundation in 2018. By utilising its properties in the Albera area, the World Foundation aims:
- to experiment with Sahaja Krishi (Sahaja Agriculture using Shri Mataji’s advice) on this agricultural farm established on land bought in 2008
- thus providing the children at the Cabella School with biologically cultivated and vibrated farm products
- to follow Shri Mataji’s advice to “send the yogis to camp” by setting up camping tents among the trees and plants of the farm
The agricultural methods of the Bellavista Farm are the result of a collaboration of the international Sahaja group “The Living Valley”. Their aim is to share experiences of agricultural methods but their main task is to practice farming following Shri Mataji’s advice. Vibrating the seeds and water and giving vibrations to the field and then combining this with best natural agricultural practices.

Theatre of Eternal Values
“It was my dream, as a student, to have my own theatre company one day.” Shri Mataji Nirmala Devi, January 1997, Mumbai.
Shri Mataji fostered the arts not only as a patron, but also as a playwright and director in Her student days. She herself wrote a play “Rat pagal ho gai” (The Night has gone crazy) and dreamed of having Her own theatre company. In 1995 in Cabella, She encouraged a group of talented artists to form a professional company called Theatre of Eternal Values (TEV) and graciously took a personal interest in every department, from casting, costumes and set building to music and tour management. Since then, TEV has performed in festivals, theatres, open spaces, schools and companies across Europe, Asia and America. Many of its productions are written in-house and accompanied by live music. The cross-cultural synergy between actors, musicians, dancers, visual artists and writers naturally led to the formation of an international academy and a festival: the Nirmal Arts Academy and the Culture of the Spirit Festival, both hosted at the Sahaja Yoga World Centre in Cabella. TEV also collaborates with the Cabella International Sahaja School, providing drama classes and productions for the pupils, staff and volunteers. Theatre is an all embracing art form representing the unfolding drama of life. We dedicate our artistic work to Shri Mataji Nirmala Devi as a token of gratitude for Her living legacy to humankind.
