Highlights of the day..

Gems from the Guide

We are all interconnected much more than we can ever imagine.

There are different levels of connections. Love is a broadband connection. The ultimate connection is unity.

When the members of a family have the same spiritual goal, even if their paths are different, they add to each other due to their level of connection. They all benefit from it. When the goal and the path are the same, they make quantum leaps because when one person progresses, the other also progresses.

This reminds us of the concept of the family of souls. 
 

Daaji went for a walk between 8.20 and 9 a.m. around the Madhuvanam pond, closely observing the new plantations in that area.
 

At 9.10 a.m., he had a meeting with Sudhir Marwaha and Atul Bhardwaj regarding setting up a bakery in Kanha. After the discussion, at around 10.20 a.m., they went to inspect and finalize the location of the bakery near the canteen.

After returning home, Daaji conducted meditation for the group of seekers who had gathered. Then, saying goodbye to all, he went to rest.
 

In the afternoon, he met his college friend, Ninad Deshpande. They were very happy to meet each other after a long gap of almost five years, and later had lunch together.

Between 2.30 and 6 p.m., Daaji spent time with Ninad and a few more seekers and family members.  
 

A seeker asked, “Do you receive the prayers of someone whose heart was fully devoted to you, the Master, in a past life? Is this person connected to you today?”  

While he did not explicitly say yes, Daaji nodded his head in agreement.

Daaji went on to recollect his first sitting with Draupadi Agarwal in Ahmedabad. It had turned him inside out. He was totally lost in absolute nothingness, and there was no knowledge of even this. In the end, he had a vision of Shri Ramakrishna Paramahamsa with a golden halo around his head. He narrated that she sent him off to another preceptor for the second sitting, as after the experience, she thought she was not good enough for him!

Later, Daaji said, “It would be wonderful if you all practiced together, with the yearning to evolve. Do whatever you like to achieve the common goal, the common vision of all. Your son and your wife may be following a different path, and you could be on a totally different path, but the fact that it is in a positive direction adds up. On the other hand, if you are on the same path, it’s what they call quantum jumps every moment: one person jumps, then the rest jump. It’s a cumulative effect.”

 

Daaji conducted meditation for the group between 3.45 and 4.13 p.m. He then called for Prema Rajagopalan, introduced her to Ninad, and arranged for him to take his introductory sittings with her. 

At around 5.30 p.m., the correspondent of THLC, Pravin Dagdee, and principal, Bhavna Vijaykumar, met Daaji and invited him to the inaugural ceremony of the science exhibition organized by students on the 20th of August 2022. They requested he address the students, and he gave his consent.

Slowly, the room started filling up with more and more seekers. At around 5.45 p.m., Ninad got up to leave. Daaji walked with him to the main gate, and the duo took a detour to the surrounding rainforest. Ninad was astonished to see the greenery. At around 6 p.m., Daaji gave a warm send-off to his dear friend and went to his room. 
 

At around 7.30 p.m., he had a Yoga session with Bhushan Bhukte.  

After dinner, Daaji met many seekers, who kept him engaged in conversations till 11 p.m. He finally went to bed, but was very disturbed and could hardly sleep.
