BABA! MY BABA!
I am always busy with my school work and house work.
One day, I happened to met a great Holy Man at the "Spirit
of Unity" Concerts concluding day. He entered at
the time of Lord Venkateswara's marriage ceremony and
sat on the dias, till the function was over. I have
heard and read about so many religious persons, First
time I saw one, than too, great people falling at his
Next event my colleagues and friends birthday. Every
year I used to go to her place and wish her with flowers.
That day when I went there, she told me she was going
to her Guruji to get blessings. Of course she invited
us (my daughter and me) to accompany her. There! the
great holy man was sitting and smiling at us. When I
told my daughter in Tamil to do "Shashtaanganamaskar".
He spoke to me in Tamil, at once, and inquired about
me and other details. First time in my life I attended
Sai Bhajans. Babaji gave us Prasad and a one rupee coin
and told us to preserve it. I was so thrilled and very
excited and did not know why.
I started attending Bhajans regularly with my daughter,
and moved further to become a devotee. I never sang
a song in my life, but now I have started singing Bhajans
with His Grace. Whatever I feel or think of doing is
done automatically, without any effort or difficulty.
Of course there seems to be some delay, but it always
ends, nicely. Slowly but gradually, I found my life
style has begun to change. I saw my own transformation
take place - started becoming more patient, controlling
my anger, becoming a good listener to others problems
and I began to take interest in Bhakti.
The endless activities of Babaji are becoming interesting
to see, the bundle of energy he possesses and the immaculate
precision with which He works, and conducts himself
with Bhaktas, devotees and public in general. Then one
day I decided to accept him as a Guru - the dispeller
of my ignorance and darkness! From that day I forgot
all my worries and problems.
HE IS THERE TO LEAD MY LIFE, WHY FEAR WHEN HE IS THERE?
