A Miracle for every Surrender

This is a very special guru story for me. I was in my 5th semester electronics and communication B.E under graduate course in Bangalore university. I did my first AOL Basic course in my 3rd semester and ever since was spending time in ashram doing seva and exploring the new world of AOL in my life. I was also an active sportsman and was captaining my college cricket team, playing 1 division league for my club. I got selected to represent Bangalore university in swimming and captained the Bangalore university softball team, and there are Guru stories in their own right which I’ll share later. I had 800th rank in CET and was selected completely on merit in engineering. Though I had represented the state cricket under 16, my good grades in studies ensured that I take the best course in one of the best professional colleges UVCE. This made me reduce my sporting activity, but thanks to the techniques of AOL I regained my full potential in sports and studies while in my 5th semester which was blossoming in all aspects.
I was missing many classes due to my sports activities but luckily was getting the attendance as I was representing on behalf of my college and university however I was still missing out on important classes. This story is about the electronics lab subject. We had a practical lab class every week with around 20 experiments. I had missed almost half of that. Though some of them could be understood and learnt outside the lab, some of them were very complicated circuits and needed special connections and settings to get the output. The most complicated of them was the staircase waveform generator on the oscilloscope which I missed. The exams were nearing and I had to prepare for the practical exam. I chose to prepare those experiments where I was present and a few more which I could understand. But towards the end I didn’t have enough time and was not in a position to prepare all 20 experiments. The staircase generator was left out but I had enough confidence since I had prepared around 15 and I would get one of them. The previous batch went into the exam hall and generally only few experiments are given and we got to know from the previous batch that staircase generator was included. I got a little demoralized but didn’t have enough time to study that so I was revising the others still hoping that I’ll get the other ones. A friend passed by and showed me the complicated circuit of the staircase generator which I just looked for a second but continued revising my other experiments. It was the turn of our batch now and I walked to the hall and picked up a chit from the box and to my shock I got the staircase generator experiment which I had left out. I didn’t know what to do, I froze and sat at my desk helpless. Some of my classmates who were actually bright, had attended the class and took lab tuitions too also failed to get the output in the exam. I got really helpless and tried digging in deep into my photographic memory to see if I could flash the image of the circuit I looked at for a second some time ago. I scribbled some circuit, started setting up the circuit board with basic settings, but had no idea how to proceed. Time went by and we had only half an hour remaining. I sat there completely utterly helpless and went into a deep moment of surrender and letting go when I went into a deep state of meditation and a heightened awareness dawned on me instantly.

I opened my eyes and the big mind had taken over. I felt my hands moving in intuitively and continuing with the connections on the board, there was this presence which I felt so strongly guiding me and I was there confidently with a smile going ahead with my hands moving on their own making connections which I was not aware of. Suddenly ten minutes prior to the finish time, the staircase waveform appeared in the oscilloscope miraculously and I have no idea to this day as to what connections I did and how did the stair wave appeared on the screen. I immediately called the external invigilator and he was very happy with the output. He asked me to take readings and submit the paper. I not only passed but got a distinction in the subject. There was no way humanly that this was possible. This was my Guru story which reinstalled my steadfastness towards Guruji and my faith in him. I realised he is just waiting for us to allow him to guide us, all we have to do is let go and surrender. Let him paint the world through you. May you be a hollow and empty instrument for his grace to express. I bow down to my Guru who has continued to guide me on this path. By the way, after that I made sure I studied well and passed out engineering with distinction and was the first student in my college to get placed in my dream company.
All we need to do is, work hard and put in the effort. The best will come to us, there in no doubt that with the lovely grace and blessings of our beloved Sri Sri – our true companion and care taker in every situation of life we will always emerge smiling, cheerful, happy just like a true winner. Lucky to have Sri Sri in my life.
Jai guru Dev.
