Receiving The Best

I would not attribute any one particular miracle to Guruji – rather, my coming into the Art of Living, my meeting the great Master, my change in perspectives of life – all that would be called the greatest miracle.

When I first did the Basic Course, it was purely out of curiosity. Curiosity paved the way for more courses, and each course facilitated a change in me. I, who would earlier never stand in a queue, was actually waiting for hours in a long line to meet Guruji. I, who would never compromise on my comforts, was actually willing to share a room with four strangers during the Advance Course; and I, who used to chatter ceaselessly, actually wanted to remain silent even after the Advance Course was over.

When I see an animal suffering, I feel the pain. When I see a child laughing, it reiterates my faith in humanity. When I sit down for prayers, I sometimes feel the tears trickling from my eyes. What was earlier taken for granted is now cherished by me with a deep sense of gratitude. This complete change in my nature is entirely because of the influence of my Gurudev.

What is even a greater wonder is that my entire family has done the courses and has emerged way happier after it. Whenever I face a problem, I just have to think of Gurudev, and the solution occurs!

Guruji does not pamper me. Rather, He guides me through life with a strict hand. And I come out the stronger one. I do not always get what I want; but I always get what is best for me.
I remember the struggle my husband and I had to go through when we were finding a matrimonial match for our daughter. For two years we struggled with different prospective matches that came our way. We had a certain vision of the type of boy we would want for our daughter. We prayed in earnest to Gurudev. Finally, when we had almost given up in despair, there came a boy in my daughter’s life – the complete opposite of what we had envisioned for our daughter! And yet, I noticed that my daughter had never felt so happy, so complete before. I had never seen my husband so satisfied in life. I had never seen my own parents feeling so fulfilled.

Eventually the two families communicated with each other, and my daughter got married last December. Through every step, I could sense Guruji’s guiding hand and His blessing. The biggest moment of joy came when we received a letter from the Bangalore Ashram with a message from Gurudev, blessing the newly-wed couple and congratulating us for our daughter’s wedding.

In the end, I can only bow down to Gurudev with the deepest gratitude, for not giving us what we wanted, rather giving us what we needed and what was best for us.
