Sab ko Namaskar ji. I have a precious memory of Gurudev, to share with all, which I always wanted to.
In 1982 I came to India with my husband and 2 Kids. At that time we were staying at my sister in law’s place. One day, it was wednesday and my sister in law asked me if I can come along with her to get blessings from guru ji who is in gurgaon. I said, ask your brother (My Husband), if he can take care of the kids, I will come.
She asked her brother and he said, that as long as we can come back by 9.00 A.M., he doesn’t have any problem. My sister in law said ok, we will take the Delhi cantt bus, early morning and stand in the line because earlier we go faster we can come back. So I went with her. Guru ji was giving Darshan in a small room and when our turn came, my sister in law said, “Guru ji, this is my bhabhi from Canada.” He gave me aashirwaad with such an amazing smile, I will never forget. Then I asked my sister in law, “Kya aapke Guruji sab kuch kar saktein hain ?,” (Can your Guruji do everything ?), she said, “hanji sab kuch.” (Yes, Everything.) Then I said, “tell him about your brother”, and just then Guruji turned around and he smiled, again looked at me and said very politely, “Ki Kehndi hai Bhabhi ?” (What is your sister in law saying ?)
I just knocked my arm to my sister in law, wanting her to tell Guruji about my Husband and then guru ji said Himself, “beta koi apne ghar wale di photo hai ?” (Do you have a photograph of your Husband.) and immediately I took the photograph out and showed it to Guruji and then he smiled, gave me the picture and gave me some Laung, Elaichi and jal. He told me to go out and bring the Kadas, so I went out and brought 4 Kadas for my family . Guruji blessed and gave me the Kadas and at that moment, I was feeling on top of the world.
I came back to Delhi told every thing to my husband but he did’nt show any interest. He did’nt even wear the Kada. I kept Quiet…Thenafter 6 weeks we came back. Time kept on going. I kept prashad and Kadas in my Mandir. Then we had our 3rd child in 1984. By then there was a little change in my husband.
One day he was smoking, he didn’t realize that our baby was crawling and picked up the ciggarette. I was very upset and I told him if you don’t stop smoking you can’t touch the baby. Then I went in my room in front of the Mandir and cried alot and said to my self , “guru ji aap kahan hain, aapne too kaha thaa sab theek hai !” (Guruji, where are you, you assured me that everything will be okay !)……….
Amazing….. Next day in the evening, my husband said, “so you won’t let me touch the baby ?”, I said, “No.” He just threw the ciggarette and said ” Lo main aaajke baad kabhi nahi smoke karunga” (I will never smoke after today !)……….. Then a big change came in him. He started going to the temple on a regular basis. He even started doing Sewa there. He started serving “Langar” and also, doing the cleaning.
His thinking started changing, he wore the kada and started getting inclined towards Guruji. Then Guruji came to Canada in 1986 and blessed us. He told us to come to India on the occasion of shiv-ratri.
We went to India, and Guruji told my husband to start sewa in canada, on our return.
…………. “I wish Guruji ki kripa sab ke uppar bani rahe. Apna sab kuch saunp do, phir aap dekho kis rang mein rangtein hai……. main niwi mere SatGuru unccha, unccheyan naal mein laayiya, waari janwa mein ona unccheyaan to, jina niveyna naal nibhaiyaan…. yeh thhey sanmaran lal ji vah suman ke, jo barso se mein kehna chati thee… GURUJI KA MILNA BADHE NASEEB KI BAAT HAI, JISKO MIL JATE HAIN”…………..
(I wish, Guruji’s blessings reach everybody……Surrender yourself to Guruji and then, you see for yourself, how He takes care of you……………I am low, my SatGuru is High. I have committed myself to the Higher one, but I am short for words of appreciation for the Higher one, who has so beautifully taken care of us lowly ones…………………….. This was a precious memory of me, ‘Suman’, which I wanted to share from years……WHOEVER HAS COME TO GURUJI, AND IS BLESSED BY HIM, IS A VERY LUCKY PERSON.)
