28 March is a very important day for devotees of beloved Swamiji Shiva Balayogi. In ashrams, centers, devotees’ homes etc. devotees gather to remember and feel Shri Swamiji’s presence, to worship and pay reverence to their beloved Swamiji.
21 years ago Shri Swamiji dropped the physical body and attained Mahasamadhi. He assured us devotees that He would be with us and that physical body is not necessary. Shri Swamiji continues to make devotees feel His presence with them. He blesses devotees to experience this truth. Soon after Mahasamadhi Shri Swamiji manifested in front of Babaji and made Him to go into deep Tapas. Thus, blessed by Swamiji, Babaji became a Yogi to continue the legacy of beloved Guru Shri Swamiji.
Babaji has always emphasized that beloved Shri Swamiji is all-pervaded Divinity, when you meditate and mind gets purified to regain its originality as pure consciousness, one is able to experience Swamiji deep in the spiritual heart. This spiritual heart is nothing but pure consciousness of existence. Shri Swamiji as the Pure Supreme Consciousness, Divinity can be experienced. Swamiji can manifest in His own physical form by His own grace and blessings. A devotee’s pure, sincere devotion and faith also make Swamiji to manifest out of kindness. This is what Swamiji used to tell Babaji, that if you have total faith and devotion Guru will have to grace and bless you. Finally Shri Swamiji guides a sadhak to the Ultimate Truth. This was Shri Babaji’s experience. Constantly Shri Swamiji guided Babaji in Tapas.
As devotees let us offer our worship, surrender, devotion and faith at the Lotus Feet of Guru Maharaj Swamiji and beloved Babaji on this auspicious occasion of Shri Swamiji’s Mahasamadhi Aradhana. Let us remember Swamiji’s teachings of spiritual truth – Meditate and know the Self – which Babaji carries on with relentless work to spread Shri Swamiji’s message.
