Dada Sharnam Everyone,
My name is Varun Zaveri and I fly as a crew member with the Swiss International Airlines. I would like to share this incident which happened with me on my flight from Mumbai to Zurich. All passengers & crew were on board and we were ready to take off. As a part of my daily routine, I always pray to Dadashreeji before the plane takes off. The aircraft engines started rolling and the airplane was running on full speed for the take-off when suddenly the aircraft started to shake violently. The entire plane was vibrating & the passengers sitting next to the engine saw sparks coming out of the engine. One of the engines had actually stopped working. The captain of the airplane immediately pushed the break buttons to the max and the airplane stopped after rolling a few meters away on the main runway itself. To my surprise fire trucks reached there within 2-3 minutes & hosed down the entire aircraft. The only thing that came to my mind was that Dadashreeji had just saved all of us. I felt His strong presence around me and offered my gratitude to Him. He had not only saved my life that fateful day, but also those of the 232 souls aboard. This is just one of the instances of the many when one connects with a true Master. He is always by your side, protecting and guiding constantly with unconditional love for one and all.
My life has been filled with Grace and I became aware of it when I met Dadashreeji. It’s become even more beautiful and it’s taking me to new heights as time progresses. Did I deserve it? Not even a bit. Well, that’s what Grace is.
Dadashreeji had come to Amritsar in 2014 for a session and that is where it all began. We didn’t talk personally. His presence was enough to take me to the 9th cloud. I had prayed to Him once to use me as an instrument of His purpose. Now I don’t know how it’s going for Him but I am loving every bit of it.
I saw a child( myself) and a father (Dadashreeji) walking in a fair( journey of life). The child tried holding his father’s finger with his small hands but instead the father held the child with his one hand encompassing the child’s hand and wrist. The child was lost in the glitter (creation) and charm (material things) of the fair. The child was so engrossed in the fair that he did not even think of the way out or the destiny. All he knew was that his father is there to take care of him and make him have some fun. But the father instead, was walking one step ahead of him to choose the best path for the child and guide the way fulfilling all the needs of the child and even papmering him a little. THAT’S MY LIFE.
There have been so many instances where I forgot Him but His Love held on to me like we were never apart. I have been ungrateful to Him but my Dada has Loved me unconditionally.
He has taken the responsibility to see me through the path. He doesn’t need to, but He still waits for me to get over with my nonsense. I still cause problems here and there on the way but I know He’ll never let go of me because He Loves me more than I could ever do.
He knows I am irresponsible and doesn’t trust me holding His hand for I may get carried away by the rides (ups and downs) in the fair and I am forever in gratitude because He has sacrificed His life to fulfill mine and always reminds me of the path Divine.
That’s my Dadashreeji. You accept Him as your Divine Friend and He will see you to the beautiful end.
At Your Divine Feet,
Sitting in my nest, wondering when I will meet my flock.
My flock headed by My Master, My Beloved.
Oh! Lord He told me I need to stay.
He told me I need to follow the rules of the sky.
But, for how long?
For how long when He is my Heart.
For how long can I be away from My Master.
For how long do I wait to Merge into Him.
Oh! My Beloved, don’t forget, I am waiting patiently in the nest.
Don’t forget that every breath increases my zest.
Hear my prayer My Beloved. Let that day come soon when I dissolve in Your Lotus Feet.
Let that day come soon when I don’t find me.
Wondering this I fall back asleep in the nest of life with all the more zest.
In gratitude forever,
We were lodged in a nice Hotel in Ludhiana for a few days owing to a family function. In one of those days I misplaced the key to my room. We called up the reception for help and they sent a guest attendant with the Master Key. My nephew inquired and the attendant replied that A Master Key can open any room in the hotel.
Well that was enough for an insight.
People have only heard about master keys with regard to rooms or locks,there is one to life also.
DADASHREEJI NAMO NAMAH.
THIS IS THE MASTER KEY TO LIFE.
No matter where you are,what ever time it is chant it and experience yourself connect to your Divine. This is the solution to all problems. Apply it to which ever situation you feel like and see how everything is taken care of. Chant it, be at it and you will not suffer again. I may not be able to use the right words,but everything just comes together and life becomes as smooth as silk.
Don’t go by what I say, try it for yourself. Chant it, feel every word that you chant and observe the change in your self. Dada is here to boost divinity in everyone and establish and strengthen the bond of everyone with their own Divine. If you don’t do it already, please try atleast once. You will start loving your life.
It was 28th December and we were at our ever so beautiful ShantiKshetra PremGiri Aashram in Karjat. We were 30 odd youth who decided to go trekking up the hill. One of us knew the way and none of us knew how long it would take to complete the trek. So according to our limited understandings, we packed our backpacks with all that we thought we would require and left for the trek in the morning to avoid noon heat.
We hadn’t even reached the spot when we realised that most of us were out of drinking water and since it was a dry season,there were no waterfalls too. We realised the value of water when one of us spotted a very thin flimsy stream of fresh water dripping down nearby, which by the look of it, suggested it would take forever to fill our bottles, and all of us queued up to refill.
The trekking was steep and tiresome. It took us more than eight hours to complete the whole thing. We had carried extra clothing, trekking sticks, books and what not but none of us carried enough of what was most essential…. WATER. And then my Dada gave me an insight like He always does.
In life too, we undergo so many trainings, courses, schooling, higher education and so much more but is all that essential? We might say that they are basic requirements but what is the most important component?
It’s Love. I wouldn’t call it a life if you didn’t live with Love in your Heart and quite often than not, we forget it. It’s there, it’s always there but we forget to acknowledge it. Experiment it. Apply Love to which ever situation you are in,and watch the magic, witness the most beautiful things unfold in front of you. Let your life be guided by Love. like they say- you only need power to dominate. Rest, Love can handle.
Thank you Dada for everything and much more.
It was when the water purifier at my place needed maintenance. The sound of the opening of the lid gathered all my attention and the operator knew I was curious enough to know how it works. So he explained to me,like a school teacher, how water goes through screening, coagulation, sedimentation, filtration and so on so that it is purified to make it potable.
It was while he was explaining to me that I got an insight. We humans too can adopt this process for our words and actions. Before it comes out, make it go through a small purification test. For me the most important thing is to see My Dada smile (for you just imagine whichever form of the Divine you connect with smiling at you). So I made it my one single checkpoint. Before I speak, including the words and the tone in which I speak,or before the physical actions or gestures that I make, I make it go through this checkpoint- WILL IT MAKE MY DADA SMILE?
This is enough… If it will, then let it flow and if it won’t, then block it and later on release it to Dada. If it doesn’t make him smile, then why do it? I understand the urge can still be there to vent it out, so for that we release it to Dada because he won’t judge.
I know it is very difficult to apply and to remember it during every conversation but you will get a hang of it once you start to practice it. I still make plenty of mistakes in a day but as soon as I do, I get an awareness that this is where I went wrong.
A lot of problems that I land into are because of my tone or the words that I use. Let your vocabulary be an infantry of Love and not weapons of hate. Words are a very powerful medium and we have a responsibility to use it for the welfare of the society.
Thank you Dada. Love you loads.
PS: this is helping me refrain from lying and gossiping.
जब तुम चुप थे
अंतर्मुख थे …
न कोई शब्द
न कोई बात
बस श्रण भर दर्शन
कैसे तुम रह पाए दादा ?
क्यों इतना हमें तरसाए दादा ?
जब हम चुप थे
ह्रदय से शब्द
ह्रदय से बातें
हर श्रण प्रेम के सुमन
तुम पर बरसा रहे थे दादा !
जम कर कृपा बरसा रहे थे दादा !
जब तुम चुप थे
न कोई प्रश्न
न कोई जवाब
क्योँ इतना याद आए दादा ?
क्योँ इतना हमें रुलाये दादा?
जब हम चुप थे
तुम्हारे बदलाव और उन्नति में
डूबे थे हम
दृढ़ता और जूनून
हर श्रण जगा रहे थे दादा !
सत्य से पहचान करा रहे थे दादा !
कब से चुप थे
अपने बच्चों को और
बहकाएं न दादा
सब्र का बाँध
डूबायें न दादा
अपने मीठे बोल सुनने के लिए
और हमें तरसायें न दादा
कब से चुप थे
इंतज़ार हमें भी था
प्रेम से कोई बुलाये दादा ..
प्रेम से कोई जगाये दादा ..
प्रेम से कोई बोले दादा,
“बहुत हो गया , अब वापस आ जाओ दादा |”
