Mahashivratri Mahasatsang and Kriya Yoga Diksha
As narrated by Kriyaban Shri Hrishikesh Ambaye:
Mahashivaratri is a very important day for all us Kriyabans. So is for all the devotees, spiritual aspirants. It's significant for us because our Sadguruji considers this as the turning point day in His life. He met His Sadguru on this very day….! And this was the day again after a few years, when our Sadguruji returned to worldly life with a mission to spread the science of Kriya Yoga as per the His Sadguruji's Vision.
Our Foundations always celebrates this pious and unique day with great zeal and enthusiasm. . The day started and ended with Darshan of Sadguruji.
The morning started with Pious Kriya Havan. A few lucky disciples got the rare blessing of Kriya Diksha. It is this day when disciples from around the world travel & other parts of India to Mumbai just to be with Sadguruji for a while. Disciples from across the Globe came to the Juhu Centre as well as to the Mayor's Hall in the evening to seek blessings from Revered Sadguruji. Those who attended the Havan felt the high energy in Juhu Centre. We welcome all the new Kriyabans who have joined this beautiful Global family and decided to chose the path of Kriya Yoga.
In the evening, Mahasatsang was organized at Mayor's Hall & everybody was all ears to listen to the Amritwani of Sadguruji. Those who witnessed these three hours in Mayor's Hall were fully recharged with Energy. The celebrations started as well reached the temporary pause with the chanting of OM NAMAH SHIVAY. The joy, happiness, energy, the feeling of oneness, the melody, the divinity... which everybody felt on that pious day; is still there with all of us. Mahashivaratri is always special for all of us...A special day for all Shishyas to strengthen the bond of GURU SHISHYA relationship. The energy of this day can actually be felt and it just amplifies with mere 'Darshan' of Sadguru Devata.
This time it was no different. The evening celebrations took the day to further high. Melodious Bhajan recitals by our Bhajan Mandali made the evening further special. All the singers offered their gratitude towards the GURUTATTVA & SHIVA-SHAKTI through their renditions. The Entire Bhajan Mandali Team did an awesome job & presented melodious swars. Heeraji's nirupan was commendable as usual. The audience also witnessed some beautiful dance performances by Nivedita and Manali. Little wonders in the form of Mahima, Shivani, Vaidehi & Kanheri also presented their skills. It was treat to our eyes to see little Shubham & Viraj in the form of Shivji. And a few more kids in the form of little Ganeshas. Gopal was fabulous in his Violin playing. Its so nice and amazing to see a lot of in-house talent in the Foundation. And thanks to Sadguruji, everybody is getting a stage to showcase their talent. Its amazing experience and this can happen only in Sadguru Mangeshda Kriya Yoga Foundation.
Sadguruji was welcomed traditionally and one could immediately feel the increased energy levels in the packed auditorium. Sadguruji was felicitated by our veteran and fighter Kriyaban Radhika Yederi. It was a very touching moment for all of us. Sadguruji narrated, "I am with those who fight negativity & Radhika is one of them fighting with cancer for last 5 years." Everybody was eagerly waiting for Sadguruji's aashirvachan. His blissful aashirvachan made the day for all of us. In His Amritwani He talked about opposite qualities of Nector & Poison. He talked as to why some places are Holy and some places are breeding grounds for terrorism. He talked about SATSANG and KU-SANG. Negativity is also waiting for salvation & all the souls are progressing to spiritual experiences.
He stressed that Mahashivaratri is the most important day in His life as He met His Sadguruji and changed His entire life. For Him, His Sadguruji is everything to Him, Lord Shiva to Him.
He also talked about various aspects of Lord Shiva. His Trident, indefinite flow of Ganga, His Blue Body, the snake around his Nake. He further mentioned that on the day of Mahashivaratri the energy levels are very high & one cal feel it & should take advantage of it. If we surrender to Lord Shiva with total devotion & surrenderence, Lord Shiva as a BHOLENATH will fulfill our wishes.
In the end all those present in the auditorium were given Bel-Patra in the hand & Sadguruji asked everyone to do continuous chanting of OM NAMAH SHIVAY and have a clear intention of what they desire. He clearly mentioned that He always prays for Global Peace and Oneness. In the end, Sadguruji offered all the Bel-patras on the Shivji's Pindi.
This is just a glimpse of His Amritwani…! The Divine Experience was much bigger one & its difficult to narrate everything here. Surely, all the people present in the mayor hall observed and experienced one of the memorable Mahashivratri celebrations. A special mention of JUHU CENTRE here who prepared the evening Prasadam. Vote of thanks was given by Rajeev Raval.
An awesome day of Mahashivratri celebrations was witnessed on that day by many. Sadguruji's blessings & grace made it all happen so smoothly. Thank You Guruji from the bottom of our hearts. Pranams to You! Kudos to all organisers for a wonderful team effort. These kind of special days and cherishable moments make these CELEBRATIONS a very very unique day.
