Hari Aum!

Once again we made our way to SISS, the only place that rejuvenates us spiritually to face the world outside. We reached just in time for the evening Arati at the SreeIshwara temple. As i stood praying and participating in the arati, I thought to myself how nice it would be to understand and know how the vastra is adorned on the idols. Arati done and we came down waiting for Maa. Mataji came and straight away told me that my duty was in the temple and I had to immediately go there. Imagine my elation when I was guided by Minuji to change the vastras on the idols. Thus began my very sweet stay at the ashram.

Next morning, 4th of November dawned beautiful, just as it should be for the all-important event on that day, the MahaAbhishekam of SreeIshwara. All devotees were busy getting the preparations done for the morning puja.

The panditjis arrived on time and Manishji began the puja under the panditjis' guidance. Puja and Havan were performed and concluded around 9.30 am.

The Mahabhishekam began at 11 am as scheduled. All of us had the good fortune to perform the Abhishekam in the GarbhaGriha, the only day of the year when devotees are allowed inside the GarbhaGriha - a very Divine and elevating experience indeed.

Heart filled with the Lord’s Grace and Maa's blessings, we all partook the Mahaprasad.

Immediately after the Mahaprasad a few devotees, ably guided by Manishji, left for Haridwar. We stayed back at the ashram along with Shubhraji, Nirmalaji, Arunaji, Sumathiji and Nagiaji. I was wondering what has been planned for 5 Nov, when we got to know that Maa would be taking Githanjali by Shri Rabindranath Tagore. When I heard that, I wondered how spiritual it would be. My understanding so far was that only writings and commentaries by Rishijis, Swamis and Swaminis would be spiritual. 5 Nov once again dawned peaceful and calm. I was excited as I was extremely curious about the text. I had a little exposure to it during my school days, but only so much as to obtain the marks for the correct answer!!!

The session began and with the very first verse, Maa caught hold of our hands and gave one pull into the spiritual purport of the text and made us understand what an evolved soul Tagore ji was. As Maa took us through verse after verse drawing parallels with SreemadBhagawadGeeta, we started getting a better understanding of the text in correlation with all our learningsunder Maa so far.

The whole experience left me with an awakening to the world of words, meanings and purport.

I was indeed extremely blessed to be at the ashram the next day too, 6 Nov, my birthday. I am unable to put into words my feelings and elation at the good fortune to have Maa's blessings and the Guru parampara's Grace showering on me. Manishji's arrangements for the celebration was exemplary which would last for 'Eternity'. I would cherish the experience for posterity

As I always feel, "SISS is the secret of our energy"
