મારા વ્હોટસ એપ ગ્રુપના મિત્રોરૂપી મધમાખીઓ એ સંચય કરેલ મધ નો મધપુડો
In April 1962, I was blessed by the Brahmswarup Shri Yogiji Maharaj at my home town Bhavnagar, while I was studying at Science College. In those days, I was totally ignorant about meaning of this ancient Vedic term - 'Brahmswarup'.
Its said - " you can't search and pickup your Guru.But when disciple qualifies, Guru picks him up".
This proved true in my case. Dec.1992, I thought of meeting Swami Ram at Rishikesh and make him my Guru. But it didn't work out. Out of my 3 friends who went to Rishikesh, only one was accepted as disciple by Swami Ram. He informed the other two that your Guru will pick you up, when your time ripes, m'time you have no choice but wait.
In 1997, while I lived in Kuwait as expat, Brahmswarup* Shri Pramukh Swami Maharaj, disciple and successor of Yogiji Maharj visited Kuwait. That was the time, I met my Guru first time in my life. That one to one meeting on 22 April 1997 in Kuwait with Pramukh Swami Maharaj was after lapse of 35 years since I got blessings of Yogiji Maharaj at Bhavnagar.
For me it was like father-son reunion after lapse of decades and turning point in my life. Subsequent to that meeting with SWAMISHRI, as months and years passed, I was pulled by HIM, like a small piece of iron gets attracted to powerful magnet.
Thereafter, I got many opportunities to touch his lotus feet while HE was at Mumbai, Gandhinagar, Bochasan, Sarangpur,Bangalore,Bahrain,Kuwait and Toronto - sometimes it was planned and some time sudden just out of blue.
Then, slowly but surely everything around me started taking shapes, exactly as I wished. My son completed college, got good job and moved to US of his own. My daughter got right life partner - married and settled. When I resigned from my job, I had enough fund to travel all over the world where I wished.
Then started inner transformation. Feelings like anger, anxiety, greed, envy etc. started melting away. Now my everyday starts and ends with joy, no matter what happens with me or around me. What used to cause me anger or worries in past, now bothers me no more.
