MAA PURNANANDAJI’S INVALUABLE WORDS OVERWHELMING DEVOTEES’ HEARTS

Hari Aum!

Today on the occasion of the very auspicious Guru Purnima, and keeping in mind the pandemic restrictions, we were blessed by Maa on a Google meet session. Maa asked us to keep three texts in mind: Bhaja Govindam, Hanuman Chalisa and the Sreemad Bhagawad Geeta. She quoted from these 3 texts and asked us to study and reflect on them. It was a very enriching experience. I hope there are more such sessions.

It was lovely connecting to the Guru Parampara family on this auspicious Day. Listening to Maa‘s guidance filled my heart with strength and gratitude, for her wisdom helps me to make each day better and guides me to live a Spiritual and worthy life. Deepest gratitude and Pranaam.

Amma, Hari Aum!

I would have never realised that the word Kovid is also mentioned in Hanuman Chalisa in a good way.
Reading of Hanuman Chalisa, really gives the inner strength to fight all crisis in life.  

Pranaam.

Hari Aum!

Today on this Auspicious Guru Purnima day, prostrations to Mata and to the Great Sree Guru Parampara!

Being provided the opportunity to be a receiver of Your Blessings by participating in today's Google Meet, I am indeed privileged to be able to do so. It brought a surge of emotional tears to my eyes out of huge respect and reverence to you, reminded me of the Great Satyavrat Family of which I have been a part, and above all re-imposed my resolve to pursue diligently my Spiritual journey under YOUR refuge and guidance, and also seek Your Blessings further to increase  my ability to OBSERVE AUSTERITY, SACRIFICE SELFISHNESS & SERVE the Society.

I almost felt that I was in the divine surroundings of the Ashram, along with all the others.

Hari Aum!

What could have been more blissful and divine than being blessed by your Sadguru on such an auspicious day of Sree Guru Purnima!!

Mata’s explanations about COVID & KO-VIDH kept me pondering long after.

The take away from the session was, Mata’s 3-pointer teaching from 3 Texts, namely ‘Bhaja Govindam’, ‘Sree Hanuman Chalisa’ and ‘Sreemad Bhagawad Geeta’, the prescribed practices to keep us going in such trying times.

The Divine offering of Shiv Shadaakshar Stotram by Manish Bhaiya and Dubai devotees was extremely soulful.

(1) Covid Or Kovid- Guru bina Gyan Kaisa

Humble Pranaams at the lotus feet of Maaji

A Wonderful beginning to the most auspicious day of Sree Guru Purnima! One thing for sure, every time we hear Maaji in person, there is always a new take away or realization. Maaji’s way of assessing things and coming up with how to connect with the Self was evident in how she related Covid - the pandemic to Kobid (Kabi Kobid Kahi sake kahan te) in Sree Hanuman Chalisa.

The depth of being in company of a Sadguru is unfathomable. Maaji expounded the importance of three verses from three different sources

Bhaja Govindam by Sree Adi Shankaracharyaji which says, “The life of a person is as uncertain as rain drops trembling on a lotus leaf. Know that the whole world remains a prey to disease, ego and grief.”

Sreemad Bhagwat Geeta Chap 3.38 where the lord says, “As fire is enveloped by smoke, as a mirror by dust, and as an embryo by the amnion, so is this enveloped by that.”

Sree Hanuman Chalisa where Sant Tulsidas ji expounds the meaning of Kobid as “Pandit” or “Vidvaan”.

The physical life or the gross life is an expression of our desires and ego, only way to get out of this is under the guidance of a Sadguru who helps us in sifting through the unreal and there by elevating us to reach higher planes in search of Self-Realization.

A short but powerful message just using three different verses, this is the magic!

Hari Aum!

This Guru Purnima was very special to us as we received blessings from Maaji even though we did not have the chance to meet her in person. Maaji encouraged us that any task we do, it should be done wholeheartedly. She also told that learning any Shloka or Shastra was not enough, we should learn it by heart by putting our whole hearted devotion and effort into it. By doing this, it would help us connect better with our inner Self.

Pranaam.

Pranaam to Maaji.

It was so wonderful; I feel blessed to join Mataji’s blessings session on Guru Purnima day. It was an eye opener as it removed unnecessary anxiety about Covid. From today's session, l clearly understood, how important it is to learn the Slokas by heart to improve the inner Knowledge and how it helps in critical situations.

Pranaam.

Very insightful session with Maa on this Guru Purnima Day.  Replace my mind's "COVID" preoccupation with immersion in the gyaan gun saagar of "kobidh", O Lord Hanuman - my Ishtadevata. Pranaam,

Hari Aum!

Sree Shankaracharya Ji puts:

"Guruhu Adhi Gatha Tatvaha Syshya Shikayanthitha sathatham", that is “The  great Gurus always think and do things only for benefit of their Shishyas”. Today, Maaji’s session again proved that. Maaji’s quotes and guidelines from Bhaja Govindam, Hanuman Chalisa and Sreemad Bhagavad  Geeta were so to the point on how to improve our inner strength during this difficult Covid time. Let us Replace “Covid” with “Kovid from Sree Hanuman Chalisa”. I feel so proud, wonderful and so blessed to be part of SISS family.

Pranaams to Maaji on this auspicious Guru purnima day.

Great start to the day! Was very good to listen to some familiar voices, especially that of Maa. Brought back memories of listening to Maa, face to face. Did miss seeing Maa, but chanting the Shanti Paath together felt like a blessed moment!

Hari Aum!

Pranaam!

God has been extremely kind to us to have the guidance of Maa. Without Maa we would have been nowhere in this world of uncertainties. It was so wonderful to hear Maa today on this auspicious occasion; we would have loved to see her too. Maa always gives us food for thought and how COVID was given a new direction of thought in ‘KOBID’ form which will definitely take all of us away from the disturbing word to the elevated meaning just explained. Every time we get entangled into this world, Maa has her own gentle way to guide us, to get us connected to the higher. She makes it seem so easy! 

Highest Regards,

(2) JOY!

Hari Aum,

Humble Pranaams to Maaji.

We, as seekers, are ever eager and thirsty for our Guru’s blessings and what more can one aspire than receiving direct blessings and message from our Guru on this most auspicious day of Guru Purnima, 5th Jul’2020. A big thanks to Manishji for making this possible in conjunction with technology even in these difficult times of Covid onslaught and isolation. The positive angle to this is to acknowledge the opportunity given to us to slow down, introspect and rectify our thoughts, action and deeds. To be able to so do, we need Guru’s guidance. We are very fortunate indeed, to have Maaji hold our hands and guide us every step of the way to cope with the challenges and crises of life and lead us to attain our purpose of life.  

Maaji very beautifully guided our attention to reflect on the transient nature of the world, body being conditioned by the worldly activities, mind covered with dust and intellect between knowledge and ignorance. With firm Faith and Belief in the teachings of our scriptures and the Guru Parampara let us move forward in our spiritual journey. We take refuge in the Guru Parampara to realise that permanent joy lies in our hearts.

हरि ओम एवं प्रणाम माता, गुरु परंपरा के चरणों में मेरा सादर प्रणाम।मनीष जी एवं उनके सहयोगियों को धन्यवाद ।इनके सहयोग से  ही हम गुरु पूर्णिमा के पावन दिवस पर माता का आशीर्वाद  प्राप्त कर सके।आज सारे विश्व में नकारात्मक विचार, निराशा का वातावरण फैला हुआ है।तीन  प्रसिद्ध ग्रंथो का उदाहरण  दे कर माता ने हमें सही रास्ते का दिग दर्शन कराया।

1.भज गोविंद verse no.4.
शंकराचार्य जी कहते है कि जीवन ,कमल के उपर पड़ी हुई पानी की बुंद के समान है। समस्त विश्व रोग अहंकार एवं दुःख में डुबा हुआ है।इसे यथार्थ नहीं समझना चाहिए और इसके संताप से ग्रसित नहीं होना चाहिए।

२. हनुमान चालीसा verse no. 15
हम covid 19 की चर्चा में अपना समय व्यतीत कर रहे हैं। कोविंद यानि विद्वान् व्यक्ति जो सदैव भगवत चर्चा में अपना समय व्यतीत करता है।

3.भगवत गीता chapter 3 verse no.38
जैसे धुएं से अग्नि और मैल से दर्पण ,जेर से गर्भ ढक जाता है उसी प्रकार कामनाओं के कारण हमारा विवेक ढक गया है।इन सब को महत्व देने से हम स्वरूप से दूर हो जायेंगे। माता आपके आशीर्वाद से हम सही सोच से जीवन व्यतीत करने का प्रयास करेंगे।

Humble Pranaams to Maa Ji,

This year’s Guru Purnima, in the month of Ashadha - 5th July, was celebrated by us in a new way. Normally this time of the year we all are in SISS Noida, we get the opportunity to immerse ourself in devotion and get involved thoroughly in every activity. Blessings from Maa ji and guidance from Manish ji helps us to carve the mind towards the Divine connection.
Mata, Pitha, Guru and Deivam...
Mata and Pita gave us birth and they hand over us to Guru and with Guru's blessings we reach Almighty.....
It’s our blessings we have H.H Maa ji in our life, every moment of our presence with H.H Maa ji, we can feel the reverberation of our mind and continuous positivity and most importantly, spiritual connections.

This year 5th July 2020, early morning we all were blessed to be connected on Google Meet. Most of the devotees were present, 66 families with 88 people were connected. All were longing for the moment to hear H.H Maa Ji.

Manish Ji joined the call, with his Hari Aum...he took every devotee to the divine connection. He listened to every devotee who was present, all of us humbly offered our pranaams. Manish Ji unveiled the surprise offered by few devotees who worked together and prepared the Sree Shiv Shadaakshar Stotram. He released the audio during the web call. We all got a glimpse of the Stotram.
We aligned our mind and got prepared to listen to Maa Ji, seamless transition of connection and we all heard H.H Maa Ji’s Hari Aum...
My take away from the H.H Maa Ji Speech is the three pointer from Sree Hanuman Chalisa, Bhaja Govindam and Sreemad Bhagawad Gita.
Time with Maa ji was so short, we could realize later that messages were so intense but it was explained naively so that we can understand the meaning of it.

Humble prostration at the holy feet of Maa Ji. Hari Aum.

Regards

Natesan and Family.

Hari Aum!

Guru Purnima, the most auspicious day in our calendar has come this year at a time when COVID has been teaching us the valuable lessons of life.

On this occasion of Vyas Purnima, the guiding torch of Maa ji blessed us in a unique way by:

  1. Bringing into focus the relevant verse from Sree Hanuman Chalisa wherein the reference of COVID (Seers) is there.
  2. Awakening us with the words of Sree Adi Sankaracharya ji about the unstable nature of life (Bhaja Govindam)
  3. Reminding us that the “Permanent joy lies in our heart’. ‘How to face the challenges of life’ - we need to learn from Sreemad Bhagawad Gita.

As always the substratum for the entire event through virtual meeting was provided by our beloved Manish ji with the active support of the dedicated members of SISS family.

With humble prostrations at the lotus feet of Maa ji we pray to the Supreme Guru in our heart.
