Swamiji— My Guiding light!
Over time, I intend to share experiences of devotees here. You are welcome to email me your story if you wish to share yours. I am starting by sharing one of my own. Enjoy!
I have known Swamiji for many years now and may be that is why when I try to think of any one particular experience, it gets really tough. Every second of every minute that I have had him in my life has been a divine experience, beyond words. But I am was recently reminded of a very important event of my life.
I met a friend from my college days and she was shocked to know that I am a vegetarian. I have been one for the past three and a half years now. She reminded me how crazy I was about non-vegetarian food back in the college days. She almost couldnot believe it. The miracle offcourse happened with Swamiji’s grace. He never directly asked me to give up eating meat, ever. But like he once said that “if we practice what we preach, it has much more impact”. Every meal that I had with Swamiji after meeting Him was vegetarian. First time in my life I was trying the GREEN side of the menu. And I really liked it. I felt healthier too. And offcourse I finally realised that I didnot like the idea of killing something just to satisfy my taste buds. But more importantly it was Swamiji’s presence that cleansed me and helped me.
Hence, with Swamiji’s blessings I was shown the right path…for me that is 🙂
Thank You swamiji for being my guiding light.
May we all live and flourish under his endless grace and love.
