Today was exceptional truly i experienced again How Art of Living does really act on day to day life! 🙂
Satsang was due on 6:30pm and somehow i kept getting things to be done at home!
I kept looking at watch! finally finishing off all the said home work i left!
Oops i left only at 6:20 pm! 😦
That means i am gonna miss out on some of the parts first thought crossed the mind!
Then i said to myself, uff enuff you have given your hundred percent now let HIM give HIS! 😀
So saying i left and Gracefull taken care of every moment is only and only what i could experience! 😀
I move out rickshaw awaits! 🙂
I move to ticket counter its empty! 😉
I get to the platform train arrives in a minute!
Everything is fast! 😉 I know HE’s calling! 😀
I board the train i land on Grant Road!
Hush i see a different sight here! Its too difficult to get a taxi to reach to the venue! 😦
What to do!! its alreay 7:10 😦 worried!
Accept situation as it is and take action! 😀 Then i just moved on!
Walked a few steps to take my chance to get a taxi! 😉
But to no avail! huh! 😦
I walked utterly in faith that i am gonna reach there come what may and that too before HE comes and graces the stage! 😀
I dont know which direction to go! i just kept walking for a few minutes on to the main road! 😀
I crossed over and saw a bus! I asked him PDP! He said yes!!!! and There was this hugee smileee on my faceee! 😀
Big broad smile! 😀 okay i said to myself i am not going by taxi but a bus! 😀
I was about to enter and two more guys smiled at me! 😀 😉
They heard me saying PDP! 😀 😉
I knew they were from AOL 😀 lo here comes the Guru 😉 HE never sends me alone! 😀
I had company! 😀
The conductors says where to? PDP is the answer and He says oh Art of Living! we are like oh Yeah! B-)
I knew many people must have boarded till now! 😀
Wohoo i could feel HIM now! 😀
Traffic jam! 😦 we came down walked a bit! cleared the traffic and boarded the bus again! 😉 😀
and then reached the venue! 🙂
I didnt speak at all 🙂 just followed and observed the company with me 😉 and reached the venue! 😀
It was huge magnificient! I was confused 😛 is it just a Satsang or a Celebration of Life! 😀 Now you can imagine how was the air there! 😉
It wa 7:50pm and i could hear Swapnil Bandodkar singing! I was like wow! G is really picking up some sublime beauties! 🙂
It was like HE was refreshing our souls with wonderful soulful people singing too! 😀 wow delighting every moment! 🙂
Swapnil B finished singing a melody and then he sang Radha Hi Bawari! 🙂
As he was finishing the song! someone came near the sofa with a yellow cloth arranging it neatly! 🙂
And i my spine went straight! Yes Yes Yes HE was gonna arrive now! wow wow wow! I was just on time! 😀
He finished the song and focus shifted to stairs to stage!
HE walked on to the stage! the HUGE stage! 😀
HE came on to the middle and waved on to us 🙂
Everyone stood up waved and HE flashed HIS smile on to us! 😀
HE sat and Amol Bhaiya( Amol Shende ) started Narayan Narayan Jai Jai Govind Hare! 🙂
As HE Blissfully sat on the sofa!:D
Chagan Bhujbal, PDP chief members had come on the stage! 🙂
First it was announced that Guruji was nominated in the top 20 most influential spiritual person!
and then Chandrika Tandon’s Soul Call which was inaugrated by Gurudev in Orrisa last year got nominated for Grammy’s!
She said Gurudev was her inspiration for this! 🙂 😀
HE just signalled in style to Satsang team to sing a Bhajan! 🙂
Harshal Bhaiya started in a his sweet classical tone Om Namah Shivay Bhajan :))
and as he was singing at the end G joined in 😉
Harshal Bhaiya just got a chance to sing with Guruji! wow! 😀
Later HE felicitated everyone! 😀
While felicitating PDP member crowned Guruji with a Pagdi and HE wore it! 🙂
While felicitating Vinod Khanna came and one more person came! 😉
G very mischieviously gave the shawl to Vinod Khanna and garland to the other 😉
G is so so mischievious! 😉
Then PDP chief committee member came up and said a few words ;)He said” Art of Living is completing 30 yrs this year! We thought of having something in PDP! so we went to Bangalore Ashram
and invited Gurudev to come and HE agreed to come! 🙂 The PDP chief committee then said that he wanted to read something from Gurudev’s book! 🙂
And everyone was like 😉 Even G was laughing! 😉
so then He said i want to say it out! its beautiful!
G laughed back again 😉
We laughed too! and he continued! 🙂
finally ended his speech by saying JaiGurudev and there was a never before loud applause!
then G was about to remove HIs pagdi and there was a loud roar! 😉 signalling no no wear it again! 😀
HE said oh ohkay i should wear it 😉 and HE wore it! 😀
HE said in school Master used to say wear the cap so that brain doesnot evaporate the facts 😉
G took on the mike to speak something!! 😀
G asked what language should i speak! How many English raise hands!
Some hands raise!
How many Hindi- raise hands! Some other hands raise!
Oh some are raising hands in both 😉
oh Marathi and follows that by saying Tumhi Sanga! ( this was sooo cutee :)) ) okay how many do not understand Hindi no hands raised! 😀
ohkay will speak in both then! 😀
HE said – ” I am not going to talk about stress and stress relief, relationship issues, etc … am going to talk about
something deeper … are you ready?! ”
Everybody was like YESSSS!! 😀
Think about your age … 25, 35, 55 … before that Bombay was right here, but where were you?!Someone you know has died right? Ever wondered where they have gone?
What we call life is not even the doorway to the house of Life – poritoco! 😀
Ok, you are going to die in a while, 50-60 … 100 years … Where will you be going then? Have you ever thought about it?!
Do you know how you got into the womb of your mother?And do you know when you got out of there?no …Our memories are after we are about 3-4 years oldWhen we realised the fingers and the colours! 😀
Children more or less remember their past lives till they are 5 years old … then they start to forget 😀
How many of the parents have experienced this?
A few hands raise up 🙂
Havent you noticed they say like i was born in Nanded! i live there and things like that!
Nature has built this into our systems, so that in this lifetime, we can fully experience childhood
And the same Nature has made it possible for us to sometimes remember who we were … get glimpses of our infinite nature …
This gives our Life a huge boost, when we start to realize we have been here before and are going to come here again
Hamare andar chetna hain 🙂
Then HE removes the mike out of the stand! 😀
and HE quotes just as the mike has to remain and with time come out of the stand!
Similarly Chetna has that span! 🙂 Chetna stays in one life form and with time it moves on other! 😀
You know why Parshuram is called Avatar! Why because he chopped his mother’s head! You know anyone no animal no human being can perform this act of mother, they are so attached to her! This was something extraordinary! something not possible by any life form to do! 🙂 and He did that with a reason! 😀
In our body for every organ there is one Devata.Each organ has a Deva assigned to it! 😀
In India all God are represented to ride on different animals. like Goddess durga ride on tiger, Ganesha on mouse. It is the
representation that each animal bring that particular energy from the universe to this planet.
Bull (Bail) brings the Shiva energy to planet earth! 😀
There are units of consciousness … called kalas …Stone has 1 kala
Water has 2
Trees, plants 6
Human Beings 8
People who are genius, exceptional 9
Sri Ram had 12
Hanuman has 14
Lord Krishna 16
Thats why krishna called purna avatar. Its not only krishna was complete incarnation. you also have that ability.
Now dont think only Krishna has possibility to get to that level! No! even you can! 🙂
When we die we become something called pitrus
And each city, each place has a presiding Divinity called a Yaksha
Like in our body there are millions and millions of cells that die regularly … like that the presiding angel of a city is
like us, and people are the cells – This is the Yaksha
Then there is the Gandharva who takes care of the Entertainers, the actors, musicians, etc …
A person who can sing
beautifully can do that only when there is a Gandharva taking care of them … however, while a Gadharva will grant fame and
the ability to entertain it will bring great personal tragedy to the person … This can only be transformed by doing
Meditation (thru the Grace of a Guru)
The Kinneras are the ones who bring great wealth and power in politics. However, they bring sadness from the second
generation of children.
Then the Devas and angels, the celestial beings who are in charge of animals and the environment … They are all right here
The siddhas are beyond the Celestial Beings, they are the perfected ones – Ones who don’t want anything for themselves, who
can therefore Bless …You are MUCH older than what you think you are … Right now you may just know this, but when you meditate, you will realise
When you come to the Guru, and aim for perfection, for Enlightenment … then all these Yakshas, Gandharvas, Kinneras,
Siddhas will help you along. You have taken one step into Spirituality and see how many miracles have been yours to
experience … Take another and see … There is no end to the possibilities that will open up for you!
Is it heavy for u! 😉
okay how many of u know the meaning of the months! 😀
Meanings of months. These name have been derived from Sanskrit language, the oldest language.
September (sapta ambar = 7th sky) October (Ashta ambar = 8th sky)November (Nav ambar = 9th sky)December (Dash ambar = 10th sky)
March means to march in! 😉
Gudipadwa kaunse mahine mein ata hain! everybody nodded yeah yeah in March! 😀
You know in Iran Iraq people celebrate New Year in March!
They say we got it from India! 😀
and if you count from Indian calender which start from March then december is 10th month isn’t it! Wow!
woh thoda counting and arranging mein problem hua! 😛 😉
We will meditate now …
okay how much time should we meditate 10 mins 15 mins how much!
okay listen put your mobile phones off and dont move from your place till end of a meditation!
At the end of meditation, you may ask for one specific boon … Be specific, it will be granted for you! 🙂
ohkay shake ur hands! shake it! 😀
close ur eyes and shake ur hands! 😀
A very nice 20+mins meditation … Serene and peaceful … 🙂
kalji karu naka! HE said it after the meditation
Ojaswita and few other divine shop stuff was inaugrated by G! 😀
Guruji called on to Tina and gave her Ojaswita! 😉 and said u love chocolates na! 😉
A lady came to inaugrate a book and a cD! 🙂
She said main sab ratt ke aayi thi par abhi, in HIS presence completely forgot it! 😛
only one line i remember! 😀
She then said the one line and Gurudev quoted a few lines from the back and said with a Huge smile Acchaa hain! 😀
HE concluded saying-
Dont’ worry … India will move ahead … Wait till next year, India will progress in all possible way … Interest in
Spirituality will blossom more and more…Everything will get better and better…!
and Amol Bhaiya and Vikram Hazra sung Jai Jai Raman Hari Bol! 🙂 🙂 😀
I was speechless after HE left! mind was silenced! wow!!
Some celebrated in silence! Some celebrated in sound! :)Life is celebration!
You wake up to this Reality in HIS presence! 🙂
Advance Course Silence + Navaratri Celebratiion thats what i experienced on Day 2 of HIS visit! 😀 :))
Mind is silenced! 😀 :))
As i came out of park enroute meeting a lot of bhule bichde AOL ke saathi, i saw just people people and more people loitering around on the streets! with Traffic police striking the whistle!
I kept gazing at the moment!
The traffic the chaos of people, i could see that was what was happening! and amidst this i was feeling so so cool within!
Some ran around here and there to catch a taxi!
i just waiting still figuring out what was happening! No i had still not overcomed the hangover!
As there seemed chaos i quickly jumped over to a bus and boarded to station!
Thats whats called, i call a grace full act! 😉 while everyone seem to be waiting to figure out how to reach or catch a taxi or to resort to walking! I was somewhere rest assured that i will go home soon! 😀 😀 😀
With utmost faith i stood at bus stop,absolutely no signs of bus seem to come in ten minutes as traffic was just getting messy
and yet no worry!
finally the bus came! 😀
Silence throughout! a big big silence! :))
I got to seat! 😀
Few others joined us enroute to station! they had to stand! 😀
wow i was taken care of like a king throughout! wow! love uu G! 😀
Grateful to u for everything! 😀
