We entered and sat down towards the back row of the building. There was a small group of singers on the stage, singing, what I now know to be Bhajans. The music started to flow through my body and caused me to awaken into a highly blissful and altered state. Soon after, a loud voice started talking to me in my head. I then felt a hand reach down my throat and pull all this darkness out of my stomach. Shortly after this had finished, I looked up, and Sri Sri was walking onto the stage; and He sat on His chair and started meditating.
What followed was the most amazing 2-3 hours of my life! As soon as I thought of a question in my head, Guruji would answer it. There were several hundred people in the room but it was like He was reading my thoughts and talking directly to me the whole time. I can’t tell how long it went on for as time seemed to fly out of the window, but it was at least a couple of hours. I do remember that after about half an hour, I turned to my sister and said that I didn’t think this was actually the musician Ravi Shankar. She replied that she thought He was a Guru. I remember not having any idea of what a Guru even was back then.
After the talk finished, Guruji said that people who had never met Him before could come up the front. There was a huge line of people wanting to meet Him, and all the western people would shake His hand, while the Indians would touch His feet. While I was standing in line, He kept leaning forward so He could see me, and was smiling at me.
