Sometimes, people who are close to me ask me how you sing glories of someone whom you have never met, what if whatever you think of him is just a figment of your imagination ? They ask me how you are able to say that there is no difference for you between Lord and your master ?

When someone says that to me, all I can do is smile and pray to lord that they guide them in a way, in the path, that is meant for them . To them, I always smile and tell them, I no more see my master as one in a form (although his form is quite enchanting and adorable to me), rather I see him as an awareness, a light of awareness, and experience him within . There is only one pristine awareness that illumines everything and everywhere, and this is the reason I see no difference between lord and my master.Β 

Coming to the question of imagination, what if, he is just a figment of my imagination, I tell them that in last few years, I have realized that each and everything we know and observe is indeed a figment of our own imagination alone, be it a person we live with, an idea, or a philosophy. It is our own mind, and the information stored within from our past action that guides us to act in a certain way.

Let’s say I see a banana, a desire to eat banana props up, suddenly past information of taste of banana gets activated, past information of smell of banana comes forth, and I act like a monkey,πŸ’ , grabbing that banana. So, it is indeed my imagination of good taste and favorable smell of banana that compelled me to act in a certain way. If by any chance, I had a past information stored of eating banana and throwing up or acute stomach pain or bad smell or any other unfortunate event, this will compel to stay away from banana as much as possible. So, I have never met him physically and even he is a figment of my own imagination, I am absolutely in love with this imagination. Faith can only be experienced and can’t be logically explained.

Now for all those who love Swamiji, I have written an ode to express how he make all of us feel his presence all the time 😊😍🌼😍😊
