A Visit to Om Swamiji’s Ashram
(Experience shared by a Devotee)
Aum, Aum, Aum.
No words can remotely justify the amazing divine experience I had at Guruji, Om Swamiji’s Ashram. Everyday was a joyful celebration of divinity in the presence of Guruji. His radiant smiling face would light up the whole Ashram like thousand suns.
I was like a toddler waiting eagerly to see the divine father and mother everyday.
His purity, truthfulness, compassion, care, and above all his unconditional love was engulfing me in divine raptures. His words of wisdom, teachings, simple stories soaked in knowledge, divinity and spirituality are still ringing in my ears. He sang some bhajans. His sound penetrated every cell of my body and tears of joy would flow like a river non stop.
He also made me laugh with funny stories about sadhus in Himalayas and the commercial money making aspect of spirituality which is so prevalent now.
I have been to many Ashrams in my search for a Guru. In many places they made me feel so insignificant and was barely allowed to see the so called Guru. There was so much rigidity, distance, too many rules, and yes depending on how much one donated you were segregated as to whether you were entitled for a group or one on one dhrashan and how much time you were allowed.
This is the first Ashram of Guruji OmSwamiji I felt like being at home, a place drenched with divinity.
I could freely discuss with Guruji and it didn’t matter whether you were a millionaire, rich, middle class or a poor man. Everyone was treated equally and given unconditional love by Guruji.
After searching for many years I finally found my Guruji. I feel so blessed to have connected with Guruji and having visited the Ashram. I thank the universe for the life transforming divine healing experience I had with Guruji’s grace and blessings. I offer million pranams to Guruji and surrender myself at his lotus feet. I think of him in every activity I perform and feel so energetic and enthusiastic.
Everyday is a celebration now with his grace and blessings.
