Basking in my Guru’s presence
All we can say is that we, my wife Deeksha and I are together because of Swami ji’s blessings. I would like to share a small part of my first and only meeting with him. I met him through my wife before our marriage. She had known him for a while and used to praise him a lot. Many a times I thought, how was it is possible to admire a man so much?
Finally, I met him in Chandigarh. Wow !!! I still remember my experience. I had seen his photographs earlier, but his physical presence was something which cannot be explained in words. At that moment I understood why my wife admired him so much. I am sorry, I wont be able to explain it completely because I have no words for what I felt at that time, all I can say is Wow !!
During our conversation I told him that I was a devotee of Lord Shiva. Soon he closed his eyes and started singing Shri Rudrakshtam for me. At that time I did not understand a single word as it was in Sanskrit. I just kept looking at his Lotus eyes while listening to Shri Rudrakshtam in his melodious voice. My body was covered with goose bumps. I felt as if the energy of Shri Rudrakshtam had been transferred into my entire being.
During my lows he has been my strength. He is one true Guru, who is highly needed in today’s world.
With our whole heart we thank him and beg him to keep his grace on all of us.
Amit and Deeksha
