I am Pandit Shiv Kumar Sharma, resident of Rampur, UP. I am a Brahmin.
Today on 16 June 2014, I came to Jodhpur Ashram with my partner and got blessed by seeing
Gurudev. It was about four years ago.
One day I switched on the TV on a Thursday. Gurudev's
program was coming on TV. Seeing him, I got inspired. The next day, I called
AVSK, Jodhpur Ashram and after taking complete information, got his CD,
photo and Spiritual Science magazine etc. through courier.
I received all the material two days before Deepawali.
Before opening the parcel, I decided that I would open the parcel
and start my spiritual practice before doing Deepawali
worship. I did the same.
Two days after
Deepawali, I saw in my dream "Shri Krishna Sharanam mam gachchami" written
golden letters in the sky. I saw these lines written in capital
letters. Since then my faith in Gurudev became firm and knowledge started
I was an alcohol addict. I had been trying my best to quit
but could not succeed. I got freed from this addiction only in three days
after starting the Sanjeevani mantra chanting and meditation.
I used to go to Shiva's temple to worship. Many times, when
I was ready to go to the Shiv temple, my friends would come with a bottle of
liquor, then I used to start drinking, completing forgetting about
worshipping Shiva.Such was the state of my worship.
"Now I do not even know whether liquor is sold in India or
not.” But there is such a power in Gurudev's name that the sins of my many
last births were cut off. Now I have understood the real worship. I was only
a cheat. Even when someone used to come to me with a lot of reverence, I
used to think of ways to fool that devotee. And now I understand
that most of the people are hypocrites like me.
My request to all of you is that
instead of wandering from place to place, start your spiritual journey with
full devotion at
the feet of Gurudev and lead a disciplined life and find solutions to all
the problems of
