Experience Him…

“If you experience me, you experience true unconditional love within. If you experience true love and truth, you experience me.”- Dadashreeji

How can you pen this experience? Can I try?
What do I write?
 How do I begin?

Cause no words in human dictionary have capability of truly capturing this experience!

This experience of experiencing Dadashreeji…. Let me connect with Him internally
 and wait.. 

Yes here it is now…
The heart expanding … bursting…
Out of some inexpressible feeling…
May I call it Peace… Calmness…. Love? 
May be…!
 There the unmistakable tears start rolling…. Not out of sorrow
, But as if a volcano up surging within!
 Again I search for words… Of Love?…. 
Its much more !!

 There are pothis and pothis (giant texts) on how to reach that final destination.
 Ultimate end point of all these is to discover that ONENESS AND LOVE within….and drown into that experience….. to become that experience….LOVE ……

and what all these pothis describe!!!! So many methods, techniques, ways to painstakingly try and reach there….
Even after doing all that… there is no guarantee you will become that Love… cause the final transformation is bestowed only and only by divine grace.

And here… Dadashreeji says (in the first part)…
just simply experience Him..
and you are on your way there….

Experience this yourself…..
Cause this experience is individualistic …..
personal…. Begins with His bond…. connection
And with this experience,
the journey begins
TRUTH starts revealing….

A Master’s words fulfilled.

Editors Note: The following experience was shared by a Sevak recently in Seattle. Dadashreeji, currently on a USA tour, conducted Bodh in the city. 
The writer – Vijayji, opened up his home and heart for Dadashreeji and the accompanying team by shifting out of his house for the week and allowing the team full services and use of his home.
After experiencing Dada’s Love and Grace and spending some precious moments in His presence, Vijayji, shared his experience and the deep sense of connection he felt in Dada’s presence.

In Vijayji’s words – as a mail written to the Sevak Team.

Hello (addressed to the sevak),

Hope things are going well & you are busy as ever – planning and working for the Chicago Bodh. I admire your energy in this regard.

It was really joyful to see & be in the company of Dadashreeji this past week. I would like to thank Him for the opportunity to interact with Him so closely.

What strikes me is His simplicity and kindness. Even in the middle of critical times (like the time i almost caused all of you to miss your outbound flight), He was very calm and was more concerned if we had eaten our breakfast. Not for a second did i see Him disturbed.

I am not so spiritually evolved to claim miraculous visions etc. Despite that, I can definitely say that at times my head would feel a tingling sensation around the crown/ top portion & many times I would have tears in my eyes when I was talking to Him.

For me, the most memorable part will always be His decision to stay in my small apartment. It is more so significant due to following –

Around 2003 or so, i came across a real Master in India. Appaji as we called him, lived 2 minutes walk from my parents home. I would visit Him often when i was in India. He had once blessed me a spiritual experience that leads me to believe that He was no ordinary soul.

Before His passing away, He had mentioned that He would visit my home in the US & that He would come and stay at our place for 8 – 10 days with everyone. While that did not happen (as He passed away in 2009), His words remained with me & i wondered about their significance – since i do believe that a Master does not make idle talk.

It was indeed more than a coincidence for me when Dadashreeji decided to stay in our Kirkland apartment & Appaji’s words immediately came to my mind – I knew in my own mind that Dadashreeji was visiting in place of Appaji & that He was thus fulfilling what Appaji had said few years ago.

I really feel very happy that i had the opportunity to meet Dadashreeji & hope my connection with Him will grow & flourish with His blessings.

I will be your Dada

That little girl..
Sitting on His right side
looking at Him
with her eyes full of love
They both smile
for a while
He puts His hand on her head
and tells her to go
to play outside
She gets up
twinkling her eyes
Looks at Him tilting her head to a side
runs to His favorite bush
and comes back fast
to be by His side again..
She wishes she could
strung those beautiful jasmines
in the thread of her love for Him
Sitting close to Him again
she shows Him what she’s got for Him
and gives Him each flower
like she’s giving her soul
Baba, smiles..
with tears in His eyes
overwhelmed with her love
Looks into her deep eyes
and says
I will be your Dada 🙂
Our love will never be erased!

~ Maitreyi Shraddha

His infallible guidance

“I may appear asleep, but will wake up the moment you get lost.” – Dadashreeji

Once I had the privilege to drive Divine Friend Dadashreeji from the ashram (near Karjat) to Mumbai city. An event, on the previous day in the ashram went on till late night as devotees’ endless questions had kept pouring in and no one wanted to leave the Divine Energies felt in the ashram superadded with the nectar that kept pouring quenching the thirst for answers that Dadashreeji so patiently keeps giving (this is a normal thing to happen in ashram, whenever Dadashreeji would address the seekers). It was as if the lost soul had finally found its Source and that Divine confrontation with its Creator creates internal raptures of bliss, although the majorities were never aware of this astral phenomenon externally. Master’s love towards His devotees would keep Him up till late night as He would work incessantly even through the night at astral level.

So while driving, the physical body deprived of the normal rest went off to sleep in the car. It was a rainy day and as I carefully kept driving, suddenly at cross roads, I found myself lost whether to take the road to the left or the right (this was during one of my earlier trips to the ashram). And alas! In a second I found Dadashreeji (who I felt was fast asleep) actually up and alert as a hawk, asking me to take the turn towards the right and then said, “I may appear asleep, but will wake up the moment you get lost. Even in reality although I may appear unconcerned, but am aware of each and every move of my devotee. The moment one is lost in his path, I will be right there to give the correct direction.”

What a profound statement and so much concern! Just like a mother to a little child. And this concern of Dadashreeji and His guidance most of us have experienced and felt time and again at the appropriate time, when we are lost, when we are down, when we are helpless and clueless, when we don’t know what to do next. It’s like a miracle how the most appropriate guidance comes, just at that helpless moment and we connect to Him internally. Having read so many stories of how the Lord helped a bhakta (devotee), like the Gajendra (the king elephant), who was not only saved from the death nares of the wicked crocodile, but was given the highest salvation OR the helpless Draupadi saved of the worst shame in Kaurava’s court in Mahabharata. These stories so inspiring, we always wondered whether it could happen in our own lives! Any devotee who has been able to establish a connection with the Divine Friend Dadashreeji, who experiences Him in his/her heart are now as if insulated from the tortures of the world. The suffering and pain will come as it has to, depending upon what one has to learn and on his/her karmas. But one gets protection and strength to go through them and an instantaneous help to resolve them faster… what a profound gift to have.

Thank you Dadashreeji for being Here and Now!

My Journey with Dada

Yes, I have been spiritually inclined towards rituals, prayers, mythology, Gods and Goddesses, all sources & ways which lead me to “something” mystical, “something” peaceful and “something” which elevates my state of consciousness. My life provided me ways to meet that source in many ways and many forms to experience that “something”. Its been a beautiful ride from being ritualistic, being stubborn in my beliefs, doing acts of abstinence from all issues materialistic to being in a state of wonderment of what real spirituality is. The many ways I am talking about, conditioned, altered and re-aligned me to reach an iota of what spirituality is. And the journey continues with my Divine Friend, “DADASHREEJI” who I address as “Dada”.

I have been a follower of teachings, from Oneness University, by my Masters “Amma and Bhagavan”. They provided me insights of what spirituality is. I was exposed to the real “ME” and the teachings continue to introduce me to myself. However, there was that “something”, which blocked my real experience about the teachings learned over the years.

This block was further simplified by Mrs. Smita Jayakar, who has played a vital role in introducing me to spirituality. She introduced me to Dada and I attended Dada’s first session in December 2013.

The thought of leaving my former Masters troubled me whenever I attended Dada’s sessions. However, Dada clarified that one should not leave any of his Masters or beliefs to realize and experience His teachings. Dada explained that it’s time for humanity to unlearn their conditionings, beliefs and really experience the Truth.

What drove me closer to Dada? There is an aura about Dada, a simplified way of answering a seeker which actually got me closer to Dada. I have attended Bodh 1 twice. The second time I attended Bodh 1, Dada called me by my name. This act of Dada instantly connected me to Dada. Being acknowledged meant a lot for me.

Being around Dada, I have still not got the opportunity to experience Divinity in a mystical form. But Dada has surely introduced me to the real “ME” within. The concept of “Antaryamin”, the in-dweller is getting stronger day by day. I have been receiving messages from various sources, which are continuously guiding me towards the real “ME” within. Divinity for me has always been in a form of an image or a statue. Off late, Dada has introduced me to the formless, an energy source which is not only externally available but also internally available.

Life is still the same, the same routine but with a different outlook towards it. Unlearning the learning, experiencing your true emotions has become real for me. Jealousy, hatred, guilt are no more bad emotions. They continue to still live with me, however, the charge which they carry is diminishing. My personal experience and interaction with Dada has introduced me to many things about myself right from taking a stand in life, voicing my opinion to saying a plain “NO”. The things which I never expressed have become simpler to express without being judgmental about them. Guilt trips have reduced as there is clarity on things which I can do and things which I cannot do. The feeling of being alone has transformed my understanding of enjoying my own company. Dada introduced me to service, “Seva” in the self-less form. Being human to the other human is what I have learned being with Dada. Most importantly, my expectations of a simple “thank you” for work done by me are slowly wading off. The mind games, the ego have been taken over by the Divinity within. I struggled with my mind and the games it played through out, but now an understanding that all exists the way it should exist. The conflicts with mind are dissolving day by day as Divinity is taking over to channelize my efforts required at the right moment and the right time. I have realized that for anything to manifest all I need to do is to take that effort and let Divinity take over. Actions are important to grow spiritually.

Dada has become part of my life introducing me to the real “ME”, guiding me in all the ups and downs which I am supposed to face to achieve my real purpose in life.

I cannot conclude with this note on my experiences with Dada as the journey continues to experience that “something”.

My First Meeting, ‘Divine Friend’.

I first met Dadashreeji lovingly called as Dada and also “Divine Friend” on a skype call in March 2012. My brother had met Dada when he had come to Delhi. My brother decided to invite some people over for a meeting at his house on a Sunday. He wanted me to come too insisting that he wanted me to meet a friend “a guru type of person”. I had been practicing meditation since I was 18 and was quite pleased with myself. I said why the heck should I want to meet anyone and that too – your friend? I have enough friends and don’t want yet another. Plus it’s a Sunday. I should be sleeping late and taking things easy. Yet to please my brother I got up early and reached my parents’ house in SDA only to find that the fellow was still asleep and had not bothered to tell me that the meeting had been postponed. I was furious at him for spoiling my Sunday.

The same story of request for a meeting repeated itself next Sunday. I told him off but because of my soft corner for my kid brother: I went to SDA yet again. There I met a quaint couple talking some gibberish about some chap they called a friend and heard their claims about how he had turned their lives around, a transformation they called it. After some discussion and talk of being a good person, living a good life etc I was willy nilly made to go into another room where Dada was waiting online on a skype call. I had no clue what was expected of me. I was just being polite and went anyway. I greeted him and he me. I saw Sai’s photo above and behind Dada’s head and made a stupid remark that “you can’t be on the wrong track if Baba is with you”. Dada laughed and said, what I was to realise much later with his trademark ‘yes, yes’. I requested his inputs in how I could grow in my career. He said “just keep doing what you are doing. I am with you.”

The next day the bottom fell out on my career. From being the blue eyed boy, my employer took an intense dislike for me. I was to understand much later that Dada’s Grace had already made its presence felt starting with the Skype call. (Actually this was the best thing that could have happened to me) Things got very bad and ultimately I was forced to resign. The employer was not the most reasonable of people. I was threatened and what not. Dada said take this as long as you can. I accepted and kept going for another week. The employer then threatened me with bodily harm. I was alarmed and though not having any background of Dada, sent him a message. Dada conveyed to me to chant the Guru Mantra. I had nothing to lose through zero faith in my brother’s so called friend. Dada stayed with me throughout this time with frequent calls from Mitra Shankhji conveying messages from Dada to a skeptical me, till I finally left the job. The employer has never ever paid any person leaving leaving his employment his last salary. Dada ensured that I got the last paise from him. My first taste of Divinity!
