கோபால கிருஷ்ணன் - மதுரை
It was an early morning, gentle breeze and weather below temperatures.. while walking behind Swamiji in those small narrow streets.. picked up a life time memorable sight on my right hand side, in between buildings… the mother of all rivers, Ganga. She was amazing and as if a baby stops crying seeing his mother after a long break the feeling was stand still and pretty much sure this should have been a relationship over births. Halted my steps and waited for my wife to have this memorable sight seen.
Prem Se Bolo.. Ganga Maatha ki.. Jei!!!
Sitting on the steps of Kedhar ghat and admiring her serenely should dissolve oneself. The moment this serenity is remembered.. calmness is felt immediately. She flows. “Ganga aarthi” is a ritual of paying homage to Ganga. A pleasant and joyous feeling to know that Holy Mother Ganga is paid with this tribute daily. Swami, Thanks a bunch!!
Nevertheless it was great boon of life to do Jala Japam by holding Swami’s hand. Swami was particular that he holds my hand. True Swami… many a times like the continuous flow of water in the river this mind has its flow on many a things without any control. It needs a teacher.. and that too a very strict & multi tactical teacher for people like me. Swami, Thanks a ton … It’s you!!!!
Thanks to all the divine directions which paved the way for many a darshans to Kasi Viswanathar & Annapoorani. The food that Annapoorani offers will be a lifetime taste and sure bliss and blessings are ingredients as well. Kasi Viswanath is ready to give anything that you wanted… but it isn’t that easy. He has setup many a distractions which your mind would be occupied/busy with. First the monkeys that are around who have the feeling that you are carrying their “materials” with you. The other one’s are the priests who doesn’t wanted to carry their “money” with you. Is the test clear now? HE checks your bondage with “Money & Material” before he gives anything to you J. Hara Hara Mahadev!!!
Buddha Gaya and especially that meditation under the tree was something never ever dreamt in life. That particular meditation turned me much inside. Such a high energized spot ever met so far in life. Buddham Saranam Gachaami!!!
Exciting to see the place at Alahabad where Maha Kumbamela happens. Swami’s hint of visiting the Maha Kumbamela next year is taken as a promise.
Swami, Pechai maatha koodathu!!!
Swami with all the blessings of you and the pain you undertook on handholding all of us for this great trip is a lifetime boon. Memorable trip with a great team!
Let the “Magic” begin again!!!
