I was sitting at my showroom, in Daryaganj, when I received a phone call by Mr. R. P. Sharmaji (Param Shishya of Guruji). “Rajpaulji, there is a message for you from Guruji, that you have to reach the airport to receive Him. Guruji is coming by the 8 o’clock flight from Bombay” I reached the airport at about 7.30 p.m. and found Surinder Taneja, R. P. Sharma and a few more Shishyas also waiting to receive Guruji.
The flight landed but Guruji was not amongst the passengers. We all discussed amongst ourselves and checked the notice board for the next flight. It was scheduled at 8.30 p.m.
Guruji was not there amongst the passengers coming out of that flight. Till 9 ‘o’clock, we all waited but Guruji did not come.
My Guru bhai’s discussed and concluded that Guruji might have missed that flight too and so, might come tomorrow. They all decided to go back to their respective homes, but I somehow didn’t agree. Sharmaji asked me to go home and I replied “You gave me Guruji’s message to come to the airport and receive Him and so I have come, therefore, I cannot go home unless I receive Him.”
He seemed a little upset on hearing what I had spoken and said “Two flights have landed already, but Guruji has not come, do you plan to stay here the whole night?” I politely replied, “I don’t know about that, I only remember the message of Guruji that—
“Rajpaul should come and receive me at the airport. Therefore, I can’t go home, unless I receive Guruji.”
Sharmaji seemed a bit unconvinced over my decision and went home along with the others, saying, “Ok, do as you like, but we are going.” And I simply waited for Guruji’s arrival.
At about 11 o’clock, there was an announcement along with a notification on the notice board, that a flight from Bombay was about to land. I peered through the crowd coming out and saw Guruji walking towards me, holding a briefcase in one hand. I was overwhelmed with extreme joy.
It was about 11.30 PM. as I bowed down and did Pranaam to Guruji. He asked me, “Did you come alone? Why did you not go home as the others?” I simply said, “Guruji, I got your message, therefore, I have been waiting for you to arrive.”
Guruji asked, “but when I did not arrive with the passengers on the two flights, why did you not go back like the rest?” I touched Guruji’s feet and said, “Guruji, I only remembered your message, that you were coming and I had to be present here to receive you, but Guruji, I fail to understand about this unscheduled flight by which you have come.” Guruji said, “Some VIP was to come, therefore a special flight was arranged and the passengers waiting at the airport were also accommodated because of this VIP.”
Guruji gave me blessings and said, “Lets go” and we left for Gurgaon, where Mataji was waiting for Him. Some how Mataji was firm and sure about his arrival. Guruji told Mataji to give me tea prasad .That night he spoke of many things till about 2.00 AM and then commanded me to go back to Punjabi Bagh.
He further commanded me to lie down on the sthan bed, where I usually sat for Seva. I reached home and as per Guruji’s command, slept at about 4.00 AM. This was not a usual night. I had unique experiences during my sleep which I wish to write here. But I need permission from the super master “Guruji”. In the event of getting his permission, I shall be glad to share them in the coming time.
Now, waiting at the airport from 7.30 to 11.30 has nothing, for which one may require you to exercise your brain. These 4 hours which were spent waiting at the airport were a constitution of a programme designed by Guruji himself, meant for His selected shishyas, but the choice again remained exclusively ‘His’. There was no other thing which I could otherwise do. I stayed at the airport not because of my patience or any capability, but because of Guruji’s choice & His decision. It was Guruji, who gave me an invisible command not to go home, but to wait.
