What are they saying while blessing me?
We heard such words in Aashirwad when if offer pranam to our elders right.
Have you ever looked in to it’s beauty? Let me share my perspective. Since childhood I was sab ka Ladala (Dear to everyone), not just in my maternal side relatives but I was loved in paternal side relatives too😂 rare naa… But with this comes great responsibilities, to touch their Lotus feet and get blessings from their Sri Mukh.
Most common aashirwad I used to get was Aayush Bhava. But our brain doesn’t remember common things distinctly.
Some aashirwads have different place in our memory. Let me share my Unique Aashirwads which I got in childhood (now my visit to anyone’s home are limited just my maternal grandparents home that’s it, busy life, yaha Ghar nahi ja pate or aap kehte hai hamare Ghar aao)
1: Chiranjivi Bhava: live long life on this planet, but I accepted this as live a life which is full of devotion to Mother Divine. This one I got from my Grandfather’s sister, she is 87 now and loves me so much, it’s been a long time since I met her but yeah I talked to her over a call.
2. Khoob Khoob Dhanvaan bano, Ladivaan bano 😂😂😂 : funny right… It means may become richer and you get good wife in future. (Hope this aashirwad will work)
3. Other common Aashirvaads were like: Khush raho, Aayushmaan Bhava.
Then comes my Beloved lord’s Aashirwad, Guru Maharaj said: Maa daya karengi, there will be Mother Divine’s grace.
When I offered my first pranam to him in this life he simply said: “Narayani”
Nothing is required now, her name is sufficient.
Now comes my point of view, I always feel I’m not worthy to give aashirwad when my younger cousins and other kids touches my feet or offer their Pranam just because I’m elder to them but they do so. What I do, just remember Mother Divine sitting in my heart and offer this in her lotus feet. All I say Maa daya kare. That’s it, because we have to be mindful while saying anything good or bad.
(P.S. being Ladala is not easy, kamar toot jati hai jab sabke charan sparsh karne hote hai Family functions me)
May her Grace be with us always.
Narayani Namostute 🌼
