Pooja is a rehearsal in Indian culture. In this rehearsal, there are three
ways of preparation- By physically involving the body in worship, by chanting the mantras
mental worship. The worship in which the body remains fully active is called ‘Kaayak Puja’
If the worship is done by speaking aloud ,it becomes
‘Vachik’. The right method of worship and the most important one is mental
worship. Mental worship is the simplest of all.
First and foremost, ‘Pranam’ to Gurudev Shri Ramlal Ji
Siyag and Dada Gurudev Baba Sri Gangainath Ji. In the year 2010, on ‘Guru
Purnima’ I went to the ashram to touch Gurudev's feet for the first time.
The view there was
very amazing and delightful. There was crowd everywhere. There was a big
queue of disciples to touch Gurudev's feet.
I also stood in the queue. It was summer time, due to the
heat, the condition of my body started deteriorating. After standing for
three hours in the queue, I felt dizzy, and got angry many times in between
thinking, when will this line end and when will it be my chance? Once I
thought that I have seen Gurudev so I can go back but then the thought that
I haven’t touched his feet motivated me to stand in the queue and wait for
My turn came. As soon as I touched the lotus feet of
Gurudev, at that very moment, tiredness disappeared from my body as if a
river had come to the dry desert!The desert which was thirsty for years,
became full of water today. Electric current ran across my body. The body
which was in darkness for years, became lighted today. By touching His holy
feet, in this Kali Yuga, I got a feel of the Satyuga, Tretayuga and Dwapar
Yuga. For a trivial person like me it is a matter of great pride that the
creator of the Universe gave me discipleship. The joy of heaven also fades
when compared to the joy I felt.
Today, people all over the earth are looking for God and
is in front of us in the form of Gurudev Siyag. His path is simple.
One's faith and trust towards Gurudev should not change with the changing
situations in life situations of life. This relationship depends on
Gurudev’s Siddha Yoga, enjoyed a lot in meditation, in dreams, with open
eyes and in many life events. Once in a dream, I felt Gurudev’s hand on my
head and later I felt the weight of that hand which Gurudev had placed on my
head for many months.
Gurudev's main mission and objective is to make Vedic
philosophy a world philosophy. To make a sacrifice in this yajna, become a
true seeker and
disciple, following the path given by him. “All the distractions in my life
removed” such should be a frequent prayer to God. Jai Gurudev!
