This Years Navaratri Mumbai was Blessed with Swami Sadyojathah ji performing the Homas 🙂
We had Beautiful Lovely Rudra Pujas followed by Prasadam and then Homas taking place as Mantras cleansed our subtle levels of consciousness! 🙂
Ganesh Homa then Navagraha Homa
Maharudra Homa Sudarshan Homa
Chandi Homa Day was a Day where we also had Maheshgiree ji and Vishwas Bhaiya coming in and Blessing us all 🙂
Mantras poured in and made us dive deeper into our selves! Leaving us content in! 🙂
Prasadam made it complete as it left our stomach content! 🙂
As said the pooja’s effect is complete on Prasadam 🙂
Each evening Swamiji would makes us chant Ya Devi Sarva Bhuteshu chantings! Making us realise that Devi Chetna is present in all in so many forms! 🙂
We also had Vikram Bhaiya staying back in Mumbai for the Navaratri Celebrations! As he led into blissful Satsangs with some more singers! 🙂
Krish led us in to one evening on a lovely Satsang! 🙂
And then,We had some of the YES!+ Graduates joining in Chorus with Vikram Bhaiya too!
Lekshmi, Divya, Ajit, Karishma, Manu got a chance to sing in chorus with Vikram Bhaiya in the Navaratri Satsangs! 🙂
As also said on one of the evenings-there is necessity that Shiva and Shakti both be worshipped! 🙂
which explains us Guruji has been doing that Shivaratri and Navaratri both celebrated Grand! 🙂
There is free will and there is power of discrimination both are given to us! 🙂 Aspire for Shiva and Shakti both – 🙂
Ravan and Hanuman both were blessed! But one became an enemy of Ram and other an ardent devotee of Ram!
Free will is there! 🙂
These Celebrations make it possible to raise the Shiva and Shakti both in us! 🙂
15th October Evening! 🙂
Swami Sadyojatha ji Spoke after being in almost silence during the seven days of silence!
Mahalaxmi is Born out of Yoga 🙂 – that State of being one with the self is Yoga! 🙂
He said do you want to know what two questions you have be able to answer at the last moment! 🙂
Then he said with a smile 😉 you know na what last moment i am talking about and everybody yes yes! 🙂 the very last moment of life! 🙂
He said Guruji told You should be able to tell how much love shared and How much knowledge gained and shared! 🙂
If You can answer consider your life to be fulfilled! 🙂
Then He said a Story which was said in English and asked to translate 🙂
Swamiji said with a naughty smile! Woh thoda Hindi ka problem hain! ka ki – ka problem! Vyakran ka 😉 So i will speak and English and it will be translated! 🙂
So he said..!”Once there was a boy who was painting pictures on a airport..! He was waiting for the flight and engrossed in painting!
Then after some time Flight timings were announced and it was his turn to go!
So he went sat and got engrossed in painting again!
After some time,the plane started shaking! some turbulence experienced!
But the boy was at his cool doing his paintings not disturbed by this at all! 😀
After sometime the plane got back in the normal course! 🙂
The person sitting next to the boy then was so surprised as everyone had their breath stopped and this boy was busy painting!
He asked the boy!- “How come you were so cool when the the whole crowd was so tensed?”
The boy replied- “My father is the pilot,I know nothing can go wrong!”
The faith was unshakable! 🙂
He knew it was his father and so was rest assured nothing can happen! 🙂
Swamiji added- Have that faith,nothing wrong can happen to you,know Guruji is your pilot! 🙂
Have that absolute faith in you! 🙂
Having faith when everything is just going smooth is normal! anybody can do it! 🙂
But when things in life becomes a little turbulent,having faith at that times! is real faith! 😀 😀 😀
Have that faith Master is the pilot! and nothing wrong can happen! 🙂
Move with faith! 🙂
Antarmukhi Sadasukhi 🙂 One who is established in the self,finds happiness right there, in this very moment! 🙂
Somebody asked a Master-“You see people and we also see people! What is the difference between you and us?”
Master Replied-“You see more than me! I just see the Chetna – Consciousness! You see more than me! You see the body intellect ego! What is said before after and all that! Thats the difference! 🙂
Well if this is not possible to see what should be seen then pray and feel the Master’s presence more! :)Be in the presence of the Master feel HIS presence..that would make you see the Chetna more! 🙂
Swamiji said -“You know,years ago i wrote few lines in Hindi when i was not so conversant with Hindi,it is now sung in various Art of Living Centres 🙂
So He sang ..his composed lines!”Har Saaans Meri..Puja Tumhari..Har pal mera pradakshin tera…pradakshin tera!Har pushpa par sugandh hain teri..Har pal mera jay jay tumhara! :)”
He smiled and made HIS presence felt that very moment! 🙂
He said-“You know previously Advance Courses used to be taken only in the Ashram!”So when Guruji told Swamiji to have a Advance Course outside Ashram it was like how can you imagine that! 🙂
And now we have it at almost every Art of Living Center! Gurudev has made it so easily available for everyone! 🙂
Swamiji shared same was for Navaratri Celebrations, four years ago..Guruji said -” You know it will not be possible for everyone to attend the Navaratri at Bangalore..nine days! Lets have it at different centres! 🙂
“And everyone there was like how can you imagine all this grand celebration outside Ashram! But it is HIS Sankalpa that everyone should get the benefit and so now we have Navaratri being celebrated at places across so many places in India!
It happened in Mumbai Pune Nashik Nagpur Kolhapur in Maharashtra 🙂 ( A Big Round Clap was heard! 🙂 🙂
Swamiji quoted-“Aisa laga hi nahi that Navaratri was celebrated for the first time in this venue! It felt as if it was being celebrated for years!”It was so grand and awesome!
The Best that could be organised! Swamiji got a Sms from Atlanta saying -“how is it going in Acharya Atre Maidan?” thats the name of Venue in Ghatkopar! 🙂 as he said the news is spread across that Mumbai Navaratri was Grand! :)And it was Grand 🙂
He said there will be a time when Navaratri will be celebrated in every Art of Living Center 🙂
He added that from Next year onward there will be some cultural program on each day too! 🙂 It should happen next year that the best of the artist should be aspiring to be a part of this cultural program! 🙂
We got to know that Swami Sadyojathah is the first of the Swamis – proclaimed by Guruji!
Such a Blessing to have the first of Swamis coming to Mumbai and performing the Homas! 🙂
Swamiji then said-“You all have experienced this bliss right 🙂
Now what will you take back from this Navaratri.”He said”You should practise to experience this bliss eyes open too! 🙂
You have already experienced this eyes closed..Now practise this eyes open!””You all feel nice when you do your Sadhana and meditate!
Practise to be in this space of bliss in your day to day life! 🙂
Share more- this joy happiness.You know when Gurudev got to know he immediately shared this Beautiful Sudarshan Kriya with everyone! 🙂
What could have happened if HE could have decided to keep it with HIMself 🙂
Share this knowledge! Have Grand Satsangs with more people! Have more Big follow Ups! Let many experience this! 🙂
So take back from this Navaratri – Feel the Bliss in the day to day activities and Share this Knowledge to more and more people! :)”
So saying he concluded singing Jai Jai Radha Raman Hari Bol :)And then when he was about to get up..we said Swamiji so many days we could not hear you speak 🙂
Now share something more! 🙂 Guru Stories and More! :)He said-“What stories 😉 There is only story- pilot story i said before! ;)”
He added-“Yeah i am writing a book on stories..you read it then! :)”
Also invited everyone to attend the Rudrabhishekham the next day! 🙂
So saying Swamiji got up did Namaste to all with his ever cute smile ^_^ and with that this Serene Persona walked with HIS presence felt to us all! 🙂
