Jai Sri Hari Everyone,
I would like to request you that this is my very first attempt to write anything in my life. Main ye post hindi English mix (Hinglish) mein likhne ki koshish karunga. Main bahut hi bura writer hoon and meri English bhi itni achi nahi hai that’s why please bear with me. Par jaise swamiji hamesha kehte BHAV sahi hona chahiye. That’s all it matters.
Ye story hai about receiving DRY PRASADAM packet which we receive when we book for Abhishekam of LORD SRI HARI.
Last month april ki baat hai. My father was hospitalized due to COVID and he was fighting in ICU with the disease. Main unko ICU mein admit karke ghar aya hi tha or office mein baithe baithe thoda pareshan tha or soch rha tha ki humne apni taraf se apne best efforts kiye hain, ab to swamiji ke hathon mein hai jo bhi hai. Sahi bataun to I was mentally very disturbed because jab papa andar gaye to pata chala that people are dying. Papa ke bed ke pass wale bed pe koi the jo ab nahi rahe the iss duniya mein. To in sab baton ke karan I was in very mixed feeling of Fear, worry, etc. As my habit main jab bhi bahut distressed hota hoon to os.me kholke baith jata hoon for motivation. Main jab website scroll kar rha tha to maine dekha about bookings regarding ABHISHEKAM. Maine pehle bhi dekha tha ye page but somehow this time maine SRI HARI ke birthday pe abhishekam book kiya. Fortunately that day swamijis discourse was also scheduled. Maine sham ko discourse attend kiya and that day swamiji ne aisa laga mere mann ki baat sun li thi. I know this same happens with many many people. In brief swamiji ne bataya ki situation 2 type ki hoti hain Controllable, Uncontrollable. Uncontrollable situation mein do your best and wait for the universe and lord to do their work. This same analogy was applied over me in that situation.
Further, Swamiji ke grace se everything went well and my father was back home after not complete but some recovery and out of danger. On 20th April I got a sweet package from Chintamani gruha (Our beloved ashram). I was waiting for that parcel very very eagerly. Due to lockdowns in my district it got delayed. Maine vo small yellow packet open kiya and very carefully usko sambhal ke rakh liya apne pass. Uss packet mein se ek small sweet little packet nikla jismein dry Prasad tha consisting of Almonds and raisins. Maine turant hi usko pranaam kiya and let me tell you main aise bhi ghar pe almonds khata hoon par jo prasaad maine uss din liya or jo usmein se swaad aya, Words just can’t explain. That taste, that tenderness, that crunch. Aisa lag rha tha ki swayam bhagvan ke hath se mila hai. Mujhe ashram jaane ka kabho soubhagya nahi mila par asha karta hoon ki Swamiji raaste dikhayein.
PS – Once again please bear with me as I am very noob in writing. Also, I will keep writing something and try to get better. Please let me know my mistakes and correct me.
All glories to Swamiji.
