From the past few days this blog has seen some very intimate and high knowledge from 'The Yoga Vasistha' where Sage Vasistha instructs Lord Rama regarding the four paths to liberation.
Today I had been to the Ashram to be with the Master during the DEVI PUJA. It is very special and of course very fortunate to be in HIS presence when the divine mother is being invoked. And the location of it in the satvik and pure enviroment of the Veda-Agama pathshala makes it all the more blissful.
As and when the puja progressed.....Mind vanished, thoughts subsided, tears of bliss rolled and what remained was pure self. When the holy chantings of Lalita Sahasranama got over and Bhanu Ma started singing "Bhagya da Lakshmi...." the bliss inside me knew no bounds. When the singing also began to subside I opened my eyes only to see that the MASTER was in front of me now. Oh! Back to duality!
While my way back only one thought was coming again and again "OH! HOW FORTUNATE AM I!"
Don't you think so?
P.S. The Narada Bhakti sutra sessions at IISc which was on full swing since the past 15 days finally concluded today. Lots of knowledge has seeped inside. It means so much more now than when I listened to it for the first time 3 yrs back.
