14 May, Dera Harisar, Kila Raipur: This time, along with the Sankranti, i.e. the onset of the month of Jeth as per the Nanakshahi calendar, devotees had one more reason to gather around, to seek the blessings of their beloved Guru; it was the Nirvana-Diwas of Swami Mewa Puri Ji Maharaj.
Sadhvi Yoganjali Chaitanya Puri Ji addressed the Satsang-Sabha sharing some of the highlights from the lifespan of Swami Mewa Puri Ji and thus inspired the aspirants to stay sincere towards the affixed goal, i.e. knowing one’s true self. Let us get inspired too!
A glimpse from Sadhvi Ji’s discourse:
Life is a journey, which is accompanied by ups and downs, joys and sorrows, winters and summers, and so on. And in the end, it’s all about not merely trying to make a balance between such dualities, rather prepared enough to digest them all. For that, Sat-sang, Guru-sang, i.e. regular participation in Satsang-Sabha and single-minded surrender unto Guru’s command is a must.
As long as our vision confines a Guru, His divine presence within the boundaries of an Ashram or the physical body we get to see through these naked eyes of ours, we would not be able to step up towards our goal. For an aspirant, it is absolutely irrelevant what He, the Guru is doing. Our entire focus should be on what is it that He is suggesting to do. Realizing this seemingly infinitesimal but gigantic difference, accepting it and then marching ahead holding this very fact as a torch, would allow us to cross each and every hardship, no matter what, we might come across on this journey.
Realize that He, the Almighty resides right within us. What needs to be done is the consistent and persistent practice of Guru-mantra, and for that we need a mentally and physically sound body; so alongside if yog-asna, pranayama, healthy lifestyle could be maintained, it would be an add-on, a bonus.
