About us


The divine Love is there, with all its intensity, all its power, a formidable power, but who is aware of it?.. You are literally bathing in an atmosphere altogether vibrant with divine Love and you are not aware of it! ...Your vision of the universe is that you are at the centre and the universe all round. It is not the universe that you see, it is you whom you see in the universe. Then, as you are full of yourself, there is no room for the Divine. ...But he is there always.

An Ancient Chaldean Legend



A very long time ago, in the barren country that is now Arabia, a divine Being became incarnate to awaken the earth to the supreme Love. Of course, he was persecuted by men, harried, suspected, misunderstood.

Mortally wounded by his assailants, he wanted to die alone and quietly so that he might complete his task. Being pursued, he ran; all of a sudden in the vast bare plain, he came across a small pomegranate bush.

The Saviour crept in among the lower branches, so that he might leave his body in peace; and all at once the bush grew miraculously, became broad, thick and deep, and when the pursuers arrived there, they did not suspect that the man they were hunting for was hiding in it and they went along.

  As the sacred blood fell drop by drop, fertilizing the earth, the tree blossomed out with marvellous, large flowers, covering the ground with their petals, innumerable drops of blood.

   These are the flowers that for us express and contain the divine Love.
