Description
Preface

The sun was just beginning to go down through the scattered clouds, and the hills in the distance and all the trees seemed to emanate a light of their own-shades of gold and pink. It could have been any place and any time. On the dirt road below the hill, a farmer and a small herd of white goats with bells around their necks passed the cornfield where triumphant crows cawed. The juxtaposition of these sounds suddenly knocked me off my fee in a wave of happiness.

Who cared if it didn’t make sense....but I was gradually getting used to these inexplicable attacks of euphoria, which usually happened in Gurudev’s presence. Had it been a couple of year ago, I would have doubled all of this, even doubted reasons for my mind would only go for the logical and seek explanations for everything.

By contrast the noisy dining hall that night was buzzing with incessant chatter and total chaos. Everywhere I noticed faces of people from different corners of the world fill this place with naturalness and genuine joy. Groups of people sat listening in rapt attention as their food got cold, some eyes lost in a faraway look. All at once a petite figure clad in white rushed past and before I knew what hi everyone they scrambled to follow him wherever he chose to go. This time it was to the Satsang...

It is not unusual for those having faith and devotion to get healed. It is the awe or confusion that one sees in the sceptics and agnostics, which is a sight to watch!! I remember how once Gurudev had picked up a packet of assorted nuts and with a twinkle in eye said, “This is my collection!”. What I came to realise was, that, some things are beyond explanation. Perhaps one such phenomenon was happening right now. Gurudev Sri Sri Ravi Shankar was born in 1956 in South India. At the age of four, he could recite the entire Bhagvat Gita.At this young age, his parents often would find him in deep meditation. At seventeen, he had completed his education in Modern Sciences, as well as ancient Vedic literature.

After a period of silence and deep meditation with the Sudarshan Kriya, which has proved to be a powerful tool of transformation, eliminating deep-rooted emotions and physical toxins, restoring the natural cycles of harmony to body, mind and emotions. Gurudev Sri Sri Ravi Shankar is the inspiration behind numerous charitable organisations around the globe. The main focus of these organisations is spiritual upliftment, service through various programmes in the areas of holistic health, value education, social and community development, crime prevention, conflict resolution and social rehabilitation. Millions of people in over 156 countires have experienced a lasting transformation and profound peace.....

An embodiment of love, He is a rate combination of stillness and dance, silence and song, wisdom and humour. He lives his life with simplicity, effortlessness and joy! Knowledge flows, He sings with all His heart, dances in ecstasy, cooks and serves in the kitchen, plays with children, buttons with the glee of a child! Every person feels at home with Him- the village artisan, the student, the sceptic, the agnostic, the housewife, the corporate trainer, the national leader, the farmer and the fruit vendor on the street...

This inspired me to collect these stories and compile it into a book. There are so many who are eager to tell their story; I could only accommodate a few in this book. And a few long ones i had to cut short.

What this book cannot convey is the awe and amazement, the joy and laughter. One has to be there to experience it. For those who have experienced, this book cannot convey is the awe and amazement, the joy and laughter. One has to be there to experience it. For those who have experienced, this book will bring back the memories and help to relive it. For those whom this is a first... a journey begins.

A Statue was ordered on Dec 22nd and Paid 194.25 including FREE DELIVERY for me as a GIFT for Christmas and they Confirmed that it will be there in 4-5 days but it NEVER arrived till 30th of December and inspite of my various emails they only replied that it is being finished and will be shipped in 24hrs but that was a LIE and no further delivery information was every sent to me. I called and left a message on the phone number listed on their website which is a NY number but no one answered that phone and I left messages but no reply or update on my Statue was sent to me inspite of my daily emails to know the status. I still await this Statue but NO RESPONSIBLE REPLY.
