Gurudev believed in pure service to the people. He never liked His photographs to be clicked by anyone. Some people even tried to click His photographs without His permission, but the Reel of film always used to come out blank. It was the constant persuassion of His disciples that He finally agreed to bless us with His photographs. When the permission was finally given, His disciples tried to catch Him in His every possible Mood. To comprehend all His moods is like emptying an Ocean of water with a tea-cup, so here are just a few of them.
The day of Gurudev. It comes on the day of “Poorna-Maashi” ( Full Moon Night ) in the month of July every year. Disciples offer their prayers since early morning on this day at the sthaan in Gurgaon. A coconut wrapped in a Handkerchief is offered at the sthaan which is returned after “Tilak”. The Handkerchief brings Good – luck throughout the year. A prasad of “Meethe Chawal” ( Sweet Rice ) is distributed to all. Langar starts 3 – 4 days before the festival and is carried on till 2- 3 days after it.
The day Gurudev left His human form. It comes 2 days after “Guru Pooja”. Even though Gurudev is a power residing everywhere, his Human form was so enchanting that no-one of His disciples has been able to forget it. The lucky ones who have seen Him, feel proud to narrate their experiences to others. People throng in large numbers at “Neelkanth Dham” to pay homage at His Samadhi. A prasad of “Chane” and “Halwa” is distributed to all.
