The Enchanting Meet!
I came to know about my Master on 24 December 2012. My Koti Koti Parnams at thy Lotus feet of my Lord .
Before this date I didn’t know anything about our Master at all. Neither was I on Speaking Tree nor was I following our Master’s Blog.
Till date everything is fresh in my mind. On 24th December I was sitting in my office and searching for something online. Suddenly a thought came to me and I decided to search places to do sadhana in India. There were pictures of Rishikesh , Kedarnath and Badrinath. I started looking at the pictures of Badrinath Bhagwan. After a few minutes a page opened with pics of Badrinath Bagwan and on that page along with those pictures was the picture of Our Lord. Casually, I clicked that picture. It took me to the page of Swamiji’s Fan blog to the article that talked about Swamiji doing Shrimad Bhagavat Katha in Badrinath. I read that blog and started searching for information on Swamiji. From followomswami.com I read more about Master and contacted Navjotji through email who in return shared Swamiji’s email id with me.
I obviously couldnot wait to write to our Master and on the same day I emailed our Lord. After reading about him on the fan blog I was curious to meet him though I didn’t expect it to be a Life changing meet. Master replied on 25 December and asked me when I wanted to visit the Ashram and by 29 December 2012 I was at the Lotus feet of our Master.
On 29 December we started the Journey from home to the Ashram. Some amazing things happened while on the way to the Ashram which we realised later as at that time we didn’t really understand where we were going and whom were we to meet.
A friend who was planning to travel with us in a causal mood of picnic cancelled at the last minute. And my brother’s friend decided to join in from Chandigarh again as a last minute entry. We were going to be only four people and suddenly my elder brother called his dear friend in Chandigarh and asked him if he wanted to come with us to go to some Ashram in Solan to meet a Saint. He eagerly agreed. We picked him from Chandigarh and started the Journey towards the Ashram. My brother and his friend are both very good friends and they both know each other for the last ten years. While on our way to the Ashram my brother’s friend shared that he had been practicing meditation for the past two years and had been stuck and feeling restless now. He said he was feeling helpless for the last several days and Prayed to the Universe to help him. He further said that he was doing meditation in shavasana secretly so that nobody could disturb him.
I was anxious and excited but still not sure as to where this journey was taking me. We reached the Ashram around 5 PM and around 6PM Master came to give his darshans to us.
Everything in my life changed after that, no words can describe how I felt at that time. I was completely unaware what was happening within me. We asked Master if it was actually possible to go into samadhi. We asked if our scriptures really were true. Suddenly Master asked one of us to come closer and check his pulse. My brother was the lucky one and blessed to touch our Master and check his Pulse. Master showed us how he could stop his pulse, regulate his body temperature and come out of his body at will.
In the night after Master left we all were out of words. We slept around 1 AM in the night but I woke up at 4AM in the morning, took a bath with cold water around and sat down for meditation.
I was confused for sometime how come lazy person like me woke up at 4 in the morning and moreover have bath with very cold water. Now I understand it was all Grace of our Lord.
I was Blessed like all of you.
Naveen. Always at thy feet of my Master .
