Navaratri 2017 – Night 5 – Gurudev Speaks

After the third night, there is a constant will He, won’t He?! going on in everyone’s heads… Will He ignore the Universe and continue His silence? Or will He finally speak tonight… Each evening after the Pooja, we wait with baited breath. Till last night, He simply glided away on a cloud of Serenity, not acknowledging anyone or anything.

Tonight, the Pooja got over, the bhajans stopped and we all waited. He had not given any indication this year. He had been totally oblivious to all even through the Pooja and the bhajans tonight. Slowly He opened His eyes, picked up the mike and spoke… Jai Gurudev, Jai Gurudev…

Then in Silence, yet noticing and taking us all in He turned to all sides with His hands folded in Namaste, greeting everyone amidst tumultuous whistling and shouting and clapping as we all celebrated His entry back into our world.

Navaratri at the ashram with Him is full of enchantment, but this moment when He opens His silence is truly magical for me. It brings tears to my eyes and I feel so blessed, fortunate and grateful to be here with Him.

Tomorrow the grand Homas will begin. It’s a comfortably early start at 8:30 am. I know I have said it before, let me say it again. Come to Bangalore ashram during this time – it is the time of miracles and magic. Don’t miss it.

Jai Gurudeva!
