Your Experiences

THE EASIEST PATH TO REACH GOD, OUR INTERIOR

    For all of us it has been a very beautiful experience pasing this summer with our spiritual master on his visit to Spain. Some of us have passed more time with our guru than others, but all of us with the same devotion and love to our father, Satguru Swami Bhagat Prakash ji Maharaj.

    As time pases, one starts to realise by the teachings we recieve in our lives, both at the spiritual level and by the experience we live, that the only truth is that Sai is in our interior.

    The saints tell us in their satsangs that Sai comes and goes, that we have passed a very beautiful time with them and with Sai, but the teachings? Once the satsangs used to finish, did we really remembered those teachings that our guru said? Or we used to remember about what this said and the other one said? Or how much food was there, how many people attended satsang?.. or that today I met this person that I havent seen in 2 years?

    It is very beautiful the staying of our guru to the places he visits. But he is the one who tells us not to search for me outside in this world, search for me in your interior. If you learn the teachings you recieve by them , you will surely recieve the ashirwaad of Guru Maharaj.

    I just want to courage all those Prem Prakashis who follow and understand the path that Sai has illuminated, to follow his light, and reach where Sai wants us to reach. If we cant reach India, or cant go with him to the tours in our territory because of our obligations, we should then find him in our interior, which I think is the most easy and simple way to reach our Sai. We dont have to travel in trains, or cars, nor cross oceans, we should simply get our bags and fill it with NAAM, closing our eyes and concentrating in meditation, and slowly we will see that the distance which separates us from our Sai will be much more near to us than his physical presence infront of us.

    With lot’s of love to the service of Swami Teooram

KHUMBH MELO UJJAIN

    In our lives as far as destiny is concerned I consider myself quite fortunate, as the main aim of life is to achieve God's grace and to achieve this there are many ways like listening to the preachings of saints, to chant the name of God, devotion, to donate for a good cause to bathe in holy rivers and to serve the needy. I achieved all this during the Ujjain Kumbh Mela this year by the grace of my Gurudev Satguru Swami Bhagat Prakash ji Maharaj I have already had the opportunity to the attend the other three kumbh mela´s, but this fourth khumbh was something special. It was special as three great occassions were being celebrated together, the yearly chaitra mela, khumbh mela and birth anniversary of our dear Satguru Swami Haridasramji Maharaj. That is why the joy of this mela was triple.

    When we reached the holy place of Ujjain, all the devotees from spain went by bus from Indore to Ujjain, by the time we reached it was evening, everyone's eyes desires a glimpse of our Gurudev, to witness their calm and serene face and when we saw him my soul danced with merriment, we all ran and bowed down at his lotus feet. Then we went to our huts and later had prasad.

    The first astonishing thing about this congregation was that on a lonely, deserted place, Swamiji has constructed a huge Prem Prakash Ashram, such a lot of endurance, love, devotion and beauty was put into it. Our Gurudev was invoked in serving everybody during the whole day. He would hardly rest from down to dusk, even in the afternoon when it was extremely hot , he would go personally to see to the needs of the devotees, even then when you would look at him, there was always a smile and a special glow on his face. Hail to our Gurudev.

    We could experience the celestial powers that our Swamiji was bestowed with during this mela. One day in the evening the atmosphere in Ujjain changed of a sudden. It became windy and suddenly there was a storm approaching. The roofs of many huts were blown away by the wind and a lot of destruction was seen. The whole night we could hear the wind blowing fiercely, but in the morning it was astonishing to see everything normal and back to its place Satguru Bhagat Prakash ji and Sant Jaidev , everyone then looked towards the sky as if the saints were having a private talk with mother nature Sant jaidev during his discourses said that Satguru Teoonramji Maharaj also went through a lot of difficulties during his life time, but even mother nature bows down at the feet of true Saints.

    The second unusual event we got to experience was on the Birth Anniversary of Satguru Haridasram. It was full moon day and many devotees had come for a holy bath in shipra.All the roads of Ujjain were blocked maybe that is why the cake for the occasion took long in arriving.Till we were waiting for the cake Satguru Maharaj told Swami bhrahmanand to chant the name of God.So for one hour we all chanted the holy name of Om Namah Shivaaya. Satguru Maharaj did this to show us the greatness of Satguru Maharaj Satguru Swami Haridasram ji Maharaj so each and everyone of the devotees who had come for the khumbh mela at Ujjain got engrossed in the auspicious celebration of the birth anniversary of Satguru Maharaj. It was worth going and participating in the mela . I bow down to my Guruvar.

CHAITRA MELA 1996


    ES LA PRIMERA VEZ QUE IBA EN LA CHAITRA MELA . 1996. MI MEJOR AÑO , YA KE EN ESTE MISMO AÑO VOLVI HA NACER , Y NO UNA VEZ , SINO DOS VECES. CUANDO SAI DERRAMA SU GRACIA ENCIMA DE SUS DEVOTOS, NI SI QUIERA LA MUERTE PUEDE ACERCARSE A ELLOS.

JHAKO RAKHE SAIYA, MAR SAQUE NA KOI

    EL 3 DE ABRIL , DIA DE SATYANARAYAN , SU SANTIDAD SATGURU SWAMI HARIDAS RAMJI MAHARAJ ME BENDICIÒ CON NAM DAN. UNA ALEGRÌA FUNDIAN EN MIS VENAS HASTA LLEGAR AL CORAZON Y DE ALLI AL ALMA. NO TENGO PALABRAS PARA EXPRESAR LO QUE SENTIA EN ESE MOMENTO CUANDO EL ME DIJO : TU VENTE MAÑANA A LAS 3 DE LA TARDE Y TRAE COCO MISRI EN UNA THALI. EN ESE MOMENTO MI TIA DIJO : ENTONCES SAI , VA DAR NAM A DEEPA? Y SAI DIJO SONRIENDO: PUES CLARO QUE SI , TU VENTE MAÑANA PREPARADA. AL ESCUCHAR LAS DULCES PALABRAS DE SAI JI, ME VOLVI LOCA DE CONTENTA. SU DULCE MIRADA ME COGIÓ EL CORAZÓN .
   
     Y EL 3 DE ABRIL SAI ME DIO NAM JO DAN. LOS SHASTRA DICEN CUANDO EL GURU INICIA A SU DISCIPULO, LE DA UNA NUEVA VIDA. CUANDO EL DISCIPULO SE REFUGIA EN LOS PIES DEL GURU, ÉSTE LE LIBRA DE SUS PECADOS Y ERRORES. LE LIMPIA EL
ALMA Y ASI CON EL NAM EMPIEZA UNA NUEVA VIDA .

    5 DE ABRIL, ULTIMO DIA DEL MELA. LA MAYORIA DE LA GENTE SUELEN VOLVER A CASA . MUCHAS PERSONAS DESPEDIENDOSE DE SWAMIJI. EL ME VIO DE LEJOS Y ME LLAMO , ME DIJO : DEEPU, YA HAS ALMORZADO?. NO , SAI. ENTONCES A QUE ESPERA ALMUERZA RAPIDO QUE ANTES DE LAS 2 TENEIS QUE SALIR.

     YO ME QUEDE SORPRENDIDA POR LA EXPRESION DE SAI. PERO EN EL FONDO ME DECIA, SI SAI JI DICE ESO SERA POR ALGO. FUI RAPIDO A AVISAR A LOS DEMAS , DE QUE ERA LA AGYA DE SAI DE QUE SALIESEMOS ANTES DE LAS DOS. PERO NO FUE ASI . CUANDO FUIMOS A DESPEDIRNOS DE SAI JIN, SAI SE QUEDO SORPRENDIDO DE QUE
AUN ESTABAMO ALLI, PARECIA MUY PREOCUPADO. Y NOS DIJO DE NUEVO .- PERO AUN ESTAIS AQUI , OS DIJE QUE TENEIS QUE SALIR ANTES DE LAS DOS . - EN ESE MOMENTO TODOS SE MIRABAN UNO AL OTRO , PERO NADIE ENTENDIA NADA.

    YA POR FIN SALIMOS , EN UN COCHE DE ALQUILER.ESTABAMOS YA A LAS AFUERA DE JAIPUR. ERAMOS SEIS PERSONAS . TRES DE LANTE Y TRES ATRAS. YA LLEVABAMOS 30 MINUTOS DE CAMINO , QUE DERREPENTE VEIAMOS QUE VENIA DE FRENTE UN CHICO CON UNA BICI. EL CONDUCTOR CUANDO IBA A FRENAR , EL FRENO NO LE FUNCIONA.....

    Y EL CHICO TAMPOCO SE PUDO APARTAR Y ........EL CHICO VINO DEBAJO DEL COCHE Y ENTOCES EL COCHE YA SE PARO. EN ESE MOMENTO NOS SALIO UNSATNAMSAKHI TAN FUERTE DEL ALMA , ATERRORIZADOS PENSANDO QUE AL CHICO LE HA PASADO ALGO . MUCHAS PERSONAS SE ACERCARON Y EMPEZARON A GRITAR Y
INTENTABAN SACAR AL CHICO PERO.........NADIE SE CREYO LO QUE VIERON . EL CHICO SALIO SANO Y SALVO POR SI SOLO CON LA BICICLETA . NI UN RASGUÑO TUVO . YO ME ESTOY ACORDANDOME DE LA IMAGEN QUE VI EN ESE INSTANTE Y ME DIJE :SAI USTED ESTA EN TODAS PARTES , A PROTEGIDO AL CHICO Y A SU VEZ ANOSOTROS. ENTONCES COMPRENDIMOS QUE PORQUE SWAMI JIN QUERIA QUE SALIESEMOS ANTES DE LAS 2: 00. PORQUE SOMOS ASI!. PORQUÉ NO ESCUCHAMOS A LOS MAYORES. PORQUÉ NO ESCUCHAMOS ANUESTROS SATGURUS. SABEMOS QUE EN SUS PALABRAS ESTA NUESTRO BIEN. Y AUN ASÍ SEGUIMOS TAN NECIOS.

    ME RINDO ANTE LOS PIES DE LOTO DE MI SATGURU, QUE ES MISERICORDIOSO Y BONDADOSO , QUE SABE PERODONAR A SUS HIJOS, POR MUY PECADORES QUE SEAMOS. OH MI ALABADO SAI , ENSEÑENOS A ESCUCHAROS , MUESTRENOS SU CAMINO DE LA VERDAD , GUÍENOS EN SUS PALABRAS DE AMOR Y PAZ . LLEVENOS CONSIGO EN SU CORAZÓN . SÍ, SOMOS PECADORES , PERO SOMOS SUS NIÑOS. PERDÓNANOS COMO UNA MADRE PERDONA A SUS HIJOS. NO TENGO OTRAS PALABRAS MÁS QUE DECIROS QUE PERDÓN , PERDÓN , PERDÓN , PERDÓNANOS O SEÑOR.

    APARCARON EL COCHE Y LLAMAMOS A SWAMIJI PARA CONTARLE LO QUE HABIA PASADO. EN ESE MOMENTO SWAMI JI CON SUS PALABRAS NOS APOYÓ MUCHO Y NOS DIJO QUE NO NOS PREOCUPARAMOS , GURU MAHRAJ JI HARA TODO BIEN. Y NOS MANDARON OTRO COCHE. EN EL COCHE VENIA UN PREMI CON SU SANTIDAD SWAMI BHAGAT PRAKASH JI MAHARAJ , ( QUE EN ESE MOMENTO VESTIA DE BLANCO) . SAI NOS CONTO QUE SWAMI JI ESTABAN MUY PREOCUPADO POR LO QUE HABIA PASADO . NOS SENTIMOS TAN MAL , QUE POR NUESTRA CULPA SAI ESTABA MUY PREOCUPADO Y NO NOS DIJO NADA NI NOS REGAÑO SINO POR LO CONTRARIO NOS ACOGIÓ
EN SUS CARIÑOSAS PALABRAS , PARA QUE NOS SINTIERAMOS BIEN.

    LLEGAMOS EN LA ESTACIÓN Y CASI PERDEMOS EL TREN , SINO FUERA POR UN SANTO QUE NOS ESTABA ESPERANDO Y QUE LE HABIA DICHO AL ......................... QUE LLEGABAMOS. POR FIN LLEGAMOS A HARIDWAR Y LO PRIMERO QUE HIZO MI TIA ES LLAMAR A SAI JIN Y QUE PASÓ.................. QUE SAI LA REGAÑO MUCHO A MI TIA , COMO UNA MADRE REGAÑA A SU HIJO . HAN VISTO, CUANDO ESTABAMOS ASUSTADOS , NOS CONSOLÓ , CUANDO YA LLEGAMOS A NUESTRO DESTINO Y ESTABAMOS BIEN SAI HIZO QUE COMPRENDIERAMOS QUE ES MUY IMPORTANTE OBEDECER A LOS MAYORES , QUE EN SUS PALABRAS ESTA NUESTRO BIEN. Y FUE ASI , SAI EN ESE MOMENTO NOS LO ENSEÑÓ Y ASI VOLVIMOS A NACER, VOLVÍ A NACER

Celebración del 100 cumpleaños, Sai Shanti Prakash en Las Palmas, agosto 2007


    WITH THE BLESSINGS OF OUR ACHARYA SATGURU SWAMI TEURAM MAHRAJI, AND WITH THE DIVINE GUIDANCE OF OUR PRESENT MASTER, SATGURU SWAMI BHAGAT PRAKASH MAHRAJJI, THE CENTENARY CELEBRATIONS OF OUR BELOVED SATGURU SWAMI SHANTI PRAKASH MAHRAJJI WAS BROUGHT TO A GRAN FINALE IN SPAIN.

    LAS PALMAS WAS CHOSEN TO BE THE VENUE OF THE MELA, AN HONOR WHICH THEY PROVED TO RIGHTLY DESERVE. THE EFFORTS AND GENEROSITY WHICH THEY PUT INTO ORGANISING THE MELA WAS OUTSTANDING AND THE MEMORIES WHICH WE WERE LEFT WITH ARE WORTH SHARING.

    OUR SATGURU AND HIS SANT MANDLI ARRIVED ON THE MORNING OF 22ND AUGUST AND WERE JOYFULLY WELCOMED BY THE SANGAT OF LAS PALMAS AND ALSO THE SURROUNDING ISLANDS OF TENERIFE, LANZAROTE, FUERTEVENTURA AND FROM MAINLAND MADRID, BARCELONA, ANDORRA, MALAGA, CEUTA AND GIBRALTAR, AND ALSO LONDON. THEY WERE ACCOMPANIED BY MR AND MRS GOPE SAMTANI OF INDONESIA, AND LATER ON DR. TOLANI FROM JAIPUR ALSO GRACED THE OCCASION WITH HIS PRESENCE.

    ON THAT SAME AFTERNOON, THE PREMIS HAD ARRANGED FOR A SMALL PROCESSION TO BE TAKEN AROUND THE PREMISES OF INFECAR, THE PLACE THEY HAD WISELY CHOSEN FOR THE SPIRITUAL MELA. WHAT A VAST AND BEAUTIFUL PLACE IT WAS! THE AREA WAS VERY WELL LAID OUT SO AS TO PROVIDE SITES FOR THE BHANDARAS, THE KITCHENS AND A HUGE AUDITORIUM FOR THE SATSANGS. THERE WERE NOOKS AND CORNERS, WHERE THE SHEWADARIS COULD TAKE SMALL BREAKS, AND ENOUGH SPACE FOR THE BOOKSTALL AND ALSO TO DISPLAY THE BEAUTIFULLY DECORATED JEEVAN DARSHANI WHICH THE CHILDREN THEMSELVES HAD DECORATED.

    BEHIND THE DAIS A BACKDROP OF THE LAS PALMAS BEACH, HAD A DIVINE PAINTING OF SWAMI SHANTI PRAKASH MAHRAJJI SMILINGLY LOOKING ON AND SATGURU TEURAM BLESSING HIM FROM ABOVE. WE SWEAR THAT THE SMILE ON SWAMIJI'S FACE BEAMED MORE AND MORE AS THE FESTIVITIES WENT ON. HE WAS HAPPILY THERE IN PERSON WE FELT! TRUE TO THE PROMISE, THAT THEY WOULD TRY TO CAPTURE THE ATMOSPHERE OF AMRAPUR DARBAR, THE PREMIS OF LAS PALMAS HAD BEAUTIFUL MURTIS OF OUR GURUS SITTING ON GRACEFUL CARTS DECORATED AS "JANKIS" WHICH THEY LED IN A "JALLUS" (PROCESSION) HEADED BY SWAMIJI. ALL MELAS IN INDIA ARE ALWAYS PRECEEDED BY SUCH A PROCESSION THROUGH THE CITY, AND THE SMILE ON SAEENS FACE WHEN HE BEHELD THE PROCESSION WAS UNFORGETTABLE. THE LOVE VIBRATING FROM THE MULTITUDE, THE SPIRITUAL CHANTINGS, THE JOYFUL DANCING IN FRONT OF THEIR MASTER WAS SOMETHING WHICH WE HAD ONLY WITNESSED IN OUR BELOVED AMRAPUR ASTHAN IN THE PINK CITY OF JAIPUR.

    MOST OF US COULD JUST SEE OUR ACHARYA SATGURU TEURAMJI MOST BENEVOLENTLY LOOKING ON WITH HIS " DANDHA" IN ONE HAND, AND THE OTHER RAISED IN HAPPILY BLESSING THE OCCASION OF HIS CHILDREN. WHAT STOOD OUT MOST, WAS THE HAPPY MINGLING OF THE SANGAT. EVERYONE SHARED IN DOING SHEWA AND IT WAS NICE TO SEE THE KIDS IMITATING THE ELDERS AND HELPING OUT IN THE BHANDARA HALL. THEY WOULD MOST SWEETLY ASK "KUCH KHAPE, MATA" WHEN GOING ROUND THE TABLES TO ASK IF ANYONE NEEDED SECOND HELPINGS. IT MADE US REALISE HOW IMPORTANT IT WAS TO EXPOSE THE CHILDREN TO SUCH A SPIRITUAL ATMOSPHERE FROM YOUNG. AND EVEN THOUGH FOOD SHOULD NOT BE SO IMPORTANT IN SUCH A MELA, IT WAS STILL APPRECIATED THAT THE VARIED MENU HAD BEEN MOST THOUGHTFULLY PLANNED OUT.

    EVERYTHING WAS FRESHLY AND TASETFULLY COOKED, COMPLETE WITH SNACKS, SWEETS AND DELICIOUS DESSERTS. IT FELT LIKE WE WERE ON HOLIDAY IN OUR MATERNAL HOMES - "NANARO GHAR". MORNING BREAKFAST AND ALSO EVENING TEA AND SNACKS WERE SERVED TO ALL WHO CAME IN BY THE VARIOUS BUSES WHICH HAD BEEN PROVIDED FOR GUESTS AND LOCAL SANGAT. THE SHEWADHARIS IN CHARGE OF THE TRAVEL ARRANGEMENTS FOR GUESTS REALLY DESERVED THANKS FOR MAKING SURE EVERY ONE WAS MET ON TIME AT ARRIVAL AND SENT OFF SAFELY AT DEPARTURE.

    THEY REALLY HAD A HARD TIME COUNTING HEADS AND MAKING SURE THAT LATE-COMERS WERE NOT LEFT BEHIND . AND THE SATSANGS! OH WHAT BLISS!! WE REALLY PRAY THAT ALL THEIR AMBROSIAL VACHANS REMAIN IN OUR MIND FOREVER AND FOREVER. EACH SATSANG WAS SPECIAL AND FULL OF WISDOM, AND OUR SWAMIJI'S EVERY BHAJAN WAS A COMPLETE SATSANG ITSELF. EACH WORD CAME FROM THE HEART AND SO SIMPLE THAT CHILDREN WITH MINIMAL KNOWLEDGE OF SINDHI AND HINDI COULD UNDERSTAND.

    OR IT COULD EVEN BE HIS EVERY VIBRATION WAS UNDERSTOOD BY ALL, AS MANY SAID THAT THOUGH THEY COULD NOT MAKE OUT THE MEANINGS OF THE SATSANGS, THEY FELT SOMETHING THAT TOUCHED THEM DEEPLY. SOME SAID THAT JUST BEING IN THE SAME HALL AS SAEEN, WAS VERY SOOTHING AND SOME JUST FELT LIKE SLIPPING INTO A MEDITATIVE MOOD. NO DISTINCTIONS WERE MADE BETWEEN DIFFERENT PANTHS, AND MANY SAID THE MESSAGE HE CONVEYED WAS SIMILAR TO THAT OF THEIR GURUS, AS I SUPPOSE THERE IS ONLY ONE UNIVERSAL MESSAGE FOR WISDOM. SWAMIJI ONLY PREACHED "SHEWA, SIMRAAN AND SATSANG", MORE STRESS BEING LAID ON NAAM SIMRAAN.

    WHEN HE PRAYED TO HIS ACHAARYAA, IT WAS LIKE HE WAS JUST IMPLORING ON OUR BEHALF FOR THE LORD'S MERCY. EVERY PRAYER WAS ONE WE WOULD HAVE PRAYED IF WE HAD ONLY HAD THE WORDS, HIS PLEA FOR GOD'S GRACE WAS ONE WITH OURS. HE WAS GOD HIMSELF BUT HAD COME DOWN TO FREE US FROM OUR BONDAGE. MAY WE REALISE EVERY DAY HOW FORTUNATE WE ARE TO HAVE SUCH A MASTER. JUST AS ALL GOOD THINGS HAVE TO END, THE FINAL DAY CAME FOR THE BHOG AND THE PALLAV PRAYERS.

    IT WAS ALSO RAKSHA BANDHAN DAY, AND EARLY IN THE MORNING, SAEEN GRACIOUSLY SHARED BREAKFAST WITH US. I DOUBT ANYONE TASTED THE FOOD - THEY WERE ALL BUSY JUST DRINKING IN HIS DARSHAN. THEN STREAMS OF PREMIS WENT UP TO TIE THE RAKHEE ON HIM, HOW HAPPY WE WERE TO RECEIVE "KHARCHI" IN RETURN. CRACKLING NEW NOTES SIGNED AND DATED BY OUR SATGURU. IMAGINE WHAT A GREAT PERSON WE HAD FOR OUR RAKSHA = PROTECTION. WORDS ARE NOT ENOUGH TO DESCRIBE THIS SPECIAL DAY. AND THE HAPPINESS PERVADING THE WHOLE HALL. CHAPAN BHOG WAS OFFERED TO ALL THE GODS AND WHEN EVERYONE DANCED AND SANG AT THE CAKE CUTTING, IT WAS NOT DIFFICULT TO IMAGINE WE WERE IN AMRAPUR ASTHAN IN INDIA.

    SAEEN'S "ASHAVAANDI GURU TOH DARR AYEE" ECHOED AROUND THE WHOLE HALL AS A FINAL PRAYER THEN THE SPECIAL PARSAD AND SOUVENIRS, THE SPECTACULAR FIREWORKS DISPLAY, CANARIAN DANCING AND OUR RELUCTANCE TO LEAVE ALL THIS AND GO BACK TO OUR MUNDANE LIFE. THE NEXT DAY, AT THE AIPORT, WE SADLY TOOK OUR LEAVE ONLY HEARTENED BY THE THOUGHT THAT THEY WOULD BE HERE AGAIN IN SPAIN NEXT YEAR AND HOPEFULLY WE WILL BE ABLE TO HAVE THEIR MAGICAL PRESENCE. I THINK ALL OF US THERE WILL NEVER BE ABLE TO FORGET THIS MELA IN SPAIN AND FROM ONE WHO HAS BEEN FORTUNATE ENOUGH TO ATTEND THE CHAITRA MELAS IN JAIPUR, I CAN TRUTHFULLY SAY THAT THE PREMIS HAD LITERALLY CAPTURED THE ESSENCE OF THE PREM PRAKASH PANTH AND SUCCESSFULLY CULTIVATED IT HERE. LIKE IN INDIA IT WAS AMAZING AT THE WORK THEY HAD PUT IN WITH THEIR OWN HANDS.


    AS ALL COOKING, CLEANING AND DECORATIONS HAD BEEN DONE BY THEMSELVES. WHEN TALKING TO MRS ANITA SAMTANI OF JAKARTA, SHE COMMENTED THAT THOUGH THEY HAD ORGANISED MELAS IN BALI AND JOGJAKARTA, THEY HAD LOTS OF HELP IN THE CATERING AND THE REST OF WORK INVOLVED IN THE COOKING AND SERVING OF BHANDARA. I HAVE ATTENDED BOTH THE MELAS IN INDONESIA AND CAN SINCERELY SAY THAT THEIR HOSPITALITY AND GENEROSITY HAD BEEN MAGNIFICIENT, BUT STILL IT WAS BIG-HEARTED OF THEM TO ACKNOWLEDGE THE WORK DONE BY THE PREMIS OF LAS PALMAS. THE PRESIDENT OF THE INDIAN COMMUNITY IN CEUTA, MR. RAMESH CHANDIRAMANI HAD ALSO OPINIONED THAT HE WAS IMPRESSED BY THE WHOLE ATMOSPHERE OF LOVE AND HAPPINESS WHICH DOMINATED THE WHOLE MELA. HIS WIFE, MRS NISHA, SAID THAT SHE HAD BEEN IMMEDIATELY TRANSPORTED TO INDIA AND LIKE HER HUSBAND, SHE TOO HAD FELT JOY AND LOVE ALL AROUND. I AM SURE, FROM THE HAPPINESS ON THE FACES OF SAEEN AND THE SANT MANDLI, THAT THEY TOO WERE CONTENT WITH THE WAY THINGS HAD BEEN ARRANGED, AND THAT ALL THEIR BLESSINGS WILL SURELY BE SHOWERED ON THE PREMIS ESPECIALLY THE SHEWADARIS OF LAS PALMAS.

    EVERYONE WHO WAS AT THE MELA WOULD LIKE TO THANK ALL INVOLVED FOR ALLOWING US TO SHARE SUCH A RICH AND BEAUTIFUL MELA IN LAS PALMAS, SPAIN. WE HOPE THAT MANY MORE WILL BE ENCOURAGED TO ATTEMPT THIS SPIRITUAL WORK IN FUTURE. . SATNAM SAKHIi.


Celebración del 100 cumpleaños, Sai Shanti Prakash en Las Palmas, agosto 2007


    The word Infecar makes my heart away I personally feel that still that Chet Mela is going there, but in reality i know that it is not but that experience that moments are now become memorable to me.
    When we first know that this event is being hapening we were thinking that how it will be possible but in on side we knew that this was not us that we are organizing it is only one that is present there and making his work done he was “Sain Teoonram” making his work done by his bhakt or sewadari.

    The first day Sai did satsang in the evening was for the sangat was like i was feeling that this was only done for me and some programme which the kids did for the welcome of Sain was fantastic that the day we began. I saw the strength of Sain Teoonram on that day everything was so organized the hard work the people had put the decoration and the stage all was faboulus. The jaloos for the day one was also to be remembered it was looking like I have reached in Jaipur, I was feeling that it was a mini Mela held in Jaipur. The way also Sain was happy and he entered the stage was just in my mind and then we continued our journey of satsang. All the sants were also very very nice they also tried to give us different lectures and speeches through their satsang. After the satsang finished I went in front of Sain and saw he was looking like “Sain Teoonram” this time he was looking also different.

    Then there was a gran “Bhandaro” which was held in the hall the food was also tasting like “Amrapur Darbar”. The next day also satsang was in the morning I finished my work and try to reach on time so that we don´t miss anything I really enjoyed the each moment of the satsang and I didn´t want to go home wanted that it should never finish. Each bhajan and each vachan what Sain was saying was like a medicine to me which I thought that I needed because nobody will be able to give me such real and such words which I needed that time like this the days were passing and so fast the days were passing the time was flying but everything has a time. We did sewa in the kitchen and where needed but one thing I noticed that I was not feeling tired at all this was the shakti of Sain which I was feeling inside. There was a stall of the books, cassettes thing which were being brought from Jaipur and being sold. Everything was like our “Amrapur Darbar” Sain sometimes were talking to the people, sometimes he was sitting down the tree, I don´t know this time was different I don´t know how to explain in words only I can say is alokik.

    The day of “Raksha bandhan” was also being celebrated. Sain was sitting in a room and all of us were going one by one and tying rakhi to Sain and he gave us kharchi which was a khazana to me and while we were tying the rakhi the kids were reciting the 12 chapter, 15th chapter and 2nd chapter of Geeta it was totally different experience also as if he was one Krishna holding us in hand and we were the gopiyun.

    The same day in the morning Sain had breakfast with all the sewadaris and he was sitting of one side of the chair and we were sitting on the seat opposite to him it was looking like that “God” almighty has come to earth to give us all kinds of happiness which we really needed.

    I was really very proud of my Sain that what a nimarno and nishkami he is that has made us so important. My eyes in tears taht moment that he is really great.
Sai I saw that he had a special love against all the kids wheather they were small or young he was very very equal to everybody.

    The days just flew and we were feeling very sad that he is about to go but everything has an end. All the sewadari did sewa without and selfish and without any force it was because the want to do it they did it. I will not forget these days and the moments that I saw and felt inside it is just packed in our hearts.

    Thanks to everybody who brought this event a memorable for us and for our family. This is I will really not forget in my life it was not us them a marriage but than we
danced , cried, laughed, worked everything. Sain wants us to be good in every field.

    Thats the journey finished of Infecar and hope next he will be with us more and more days. This journey or event would not be possible without Swami Teoonram and my heartiest thanks to sain that he showed Amrapur in Las Palmas.

    Thanks, Kiran Jeswani.



Celebración del 100 cumpleaños, Sai Shanti Prakash en Las Palmas, agosto 2007

    Truly there are few things that I would like to share in this article, though I relieve i’ll be short of words to Express what I really felt those few days.

    At the very beggining I didn’t have in mind to go or to stay that many days. As usual we think of work and the daily routine, but destiny made it posible for me to attend and for me to share those days with people that were probably feeling the same way I was.

    I can’t really think which was my most beautiful moment.

    My guess is when the Saints went over to my uncle’s place. That day we all woke up very early. There were many things to prepare and the excitment of it all made us be on our toes very early in the morning. We all had a very strong inner strenght which made us all to work with great harmony for it to be all ready for the grand moment. And the moment arrived. We were lucky to have the opportunity to talk personally with them, serve them, attend them but nothing can compare what we got in return. Love, peace, harmony.

    One of the other things that extremely caught my attention was, “Infecar” (the satsang hall)… Oh Lord! Were we in Las Palmas or India? Just by entering that place you could sense the tranquility and peace. One could only feel the generosity from every sevadari that was there. It was amazing to see the love, the unity and most of all the way everything was organized. Just as we were getting it, someone was ready to offer us something to drink, water or tea or anything that one needed at that moment. Everything was pure service and charity. Also another thing that gave a great impact as soon as one entered the satsang hall were the paintings on the background of the stage. A painting done by the sevadars of Las Palmas Mandir, something that with each passing day seemed prettier and with more Light.

    We all have to thank the Lord above for giving us this opportunity and for for giving us the chance of using our tools for special occassions like this one in which we can only Express that positive vibe and love towards others.

    There is a moment I will never forget. The first day I asked within myself with my most inner strenght for Sai to sing a Bhajan. A Bhajan for the memory of my dad, who thaught mand and gave me life. My wish came true. The last day without me mentioning my thought to anyone, Sai sang that Bhajan, at that instant I felt as if I was floating in a cloud. I simply couldn’t relieve what was happening!

    This is when one realice that when you really wish something with true heart and sincerely your wish comes true.

Celebración del 100 cumpleaños, Sai Shanti Prakash en Las Palmas, agosto 2007


    Dear Premis,

    With our Sai Teoonram’s blessings, we have had the good luck of celebrating the 100th birthday of our beloved Swami Shanti Prakash ji Maharaj in Las Palmas.
I can say that this has been a wonderful and unexpected experience and I now wanted to express what I felt and shared.

    Beforehand, I would like to thank Sai and the Sant Mandli for choosing the city of Las Palmas. I also want to thank Bhau Khushi and Bindu for the whole organisation, particularly to Bindu for her faith on the shewadaris: how she organised everything, how she gave us each the shewa we could do according to our character, according to our nature. Whenever we needed her to supervise or to solve something, she was there and that is the way everything went on.

    I am thankful to Sai because those who still have not been on a Chaitra Mela (Jaipur) or on a Haridwar Mela have had the chance of feeling there during these days.
Before leaving for Infecar (our small paradise) we fulfilled our obligations at our respective homes and we tried to spend the whole day until nightfall. There was a lot of shewa to do, but we were many shewadaris: small, medium and big, everyone very excited about being there. The hours went by without us realizing. Early in the morning, the shewadaris passed with “neran” lovingly and almost forcing us to have breakfast.

    And the Satsangs, how marvellous were they with their bhajans and teachings! And the beautiful Bhandaras! We could see the youngsters doing shewa, asking us from one minute to the next if we wanted something else and clearing up the tables. We then went by reading Sai’s Jeevni, taking a look at the photographs of us when we were younger and of our elders with Sai Shanti Prakash. Although he is here no more with us, we felt him smiling and may we keep on with this love towards our beloved Sai, which will grow everyday a bit more. What lovely memories! We ended up at the Bookstall, which was so good that one always wanted to buy something: a tape, a souvenir, a key ring…

    One of the most beautiful things for me was the last day, when the youngsters sang the following bhajan: “Razi thio jade Ram asante, mauj machai Las Palmas mein; Amrapur jie sunder nazaro, upkar kayo Gurudev ayo”. Everyone in the Auditorium stood up to follow them as a choir. It was amazing seeing the whole Hall on their feet singing and afterwards Sai standing up and singing too! It was an intensely warm sensation.
Always in the company of Satsangis and Premis and sharing many experiences, we stopped by for a rest and, back to the shewa, they were already offering you “chhaee”, cake, etc.

    During the Satsangs, one could see mobile phones switched on so that those who could not be there or those who were not in Las Palmas in that moment could listen and feel Sai. Those who could not listen to the whole Satsang, could at least listen to Sai’s Pallav. I know of one Satsangi who cried overcome by emotion when she listened to Sai’s Pallav through the mobile phone, as she did not expect a call with such a pleasant surprise.

    The painting of Swami Shanti Prakash on the Auditorium’s stage was ever more smiling and we could feel that he was there present and very happy with all of us. Our Sai is great!

    The Jaluss (procession) on the very first day, the daily Satsangs, the day of Raksha Bandhan, when Sai and the Sant Mandli visited our homes for “neran” and to give us Assisa, when we said goodbye to Sai at the airport… We must not be sad, we have to feel so happy for having the chance of living the Mela those days that I only ask Sai for the grace of living again these unforgettable days. I know that he will be back here and that we will repeat all of this, if we all do Kamai.

    I am sorry for the expansion, but this is how I felt and I wanted to share it with all of you.

    Satnam Sakhi.

He ate very carefully, slept less, and meditated more. We were told that Sain Sarvanand would always go for a stroll after satsang afterwhich he would sit in the garden of Amrapur with some premis and the pujari would read the Yog Vashishta. One premi exclaimed that being a part of something so beautiful as you spend time with your Satguru and hear the scriptures, who would desire to go to heaven? It was very touching and heartwarming to hear more about one of the Panth´s greatest bhakts..
