Experiencing Om Swamiji’s Discourses: A devotee shares his first hand experience
‘Na mrugatrusnadayo api niraspada bhavanti’, which implies that even a mirage has a positive basis or nothing in this world happens without a reason.
I came to know about Om Swami ji, through the speakingtree website and was instantly attracted to the ‘love’ that permeates from him, be it in ‘printed words’ by way of his blogs/teachings and/or the thoughtful replies that He provides against insipid queries. Through just a few casual exchanges, I was convinced of the fact that our revered Swamiji was no ordinary being. Besides online interactions, I also consider myself extremely blessed for the opportunity to meet him in person, few days back, at Delhi. May God bless the lovely souls who had very kindly arranged for the discourse by Swamiji.
Swamiji’s energy and aura immediately enveloped us in a state of bliss and contentment. The simplicity with which He guided us, coupled with a great sense of humour, is beyond any words.
I am reminded of a light hearted banter (which is also relevant metaphysically) when Swamiji asked the group “Hum log Bhagwan ko Bhog kyon lagate hain?” (Why do we offer food to the Gods?). Many of us tried answering that ‘out of love’, ‘out of respect’ etc.
Then Swamiji shared his unique and enlightening view on it. He said that we generally do so because we know for sure that ‘Bhagwan’ (God) is not going to eat. :))) The day He starts actually consuming the Bhog (food) that we offer, we would stop offering Him any :)))
The session ended with the soulful rendering of Bhajans.
I must also mention here that in between the sessions, we were also blessed to witness Swamiji actually stopping his heart for a few minutes. In fact I checked it personally and I am 100% sure of the fact that His pulse had stopped completely. Also Swamiji placed His finger on my forehead and I was immediately able to sense subtle vibrations. It was an amazing experience!
I am of the firm opinion that many of us, who love and believe in Om Swamiji are linked with a common intention. I feel most of us are enquiring the spiritual and the metaphysical aspects of who we are and the highest ‘truth’ that encompasses everything. Allow me to conclude by submitting that I am of the firm belief that our revered Om Swamiji would lead us to the ‘highest’ truth, when the ‘time’ is both ripe and right.
Be Blessed. 🙂
