My First experience with the Master

Gurudev was conducting a healing program in Salisbury Park,

Pune in 1998 and a friend coaxed me literally as i refused to go meet any Guru. Then he told me that the program was about healing karmic factors and that struck something in me, because i knew had some heavy karmic stuff in me. i was nonetheless looking for avenues to unload that heavy stuff, and then i thought why not go peep in.

That is how i reached the event place for the event and i remember it was a 9 days program. 3 days Siddha healing, 3 days Shambhavi and 3 days Sri Vidya. i knew heads nor tails of these words and since i had decided to only peep in, i registered along with my friend for only the first event for 3 days and reached Pune. i eventually got to know that we had booked late and we had got the extra space and when i walked into the venue there was a huge crowd. Our seats were in the back, and were plastic chairs that seemed like a last-moment arrangement for the extras. i soon realized that it wasn’t a very comfortable place because it had almost gone out of the covering shelter and the morning sun rays from the open space above my head graced my head in the cool pleasant Summer morning but by noon the same sun scrorched my head. The mornings began with Mahamrithyunjay Chanting and i was very fascinated by this mantra. i remember by-hearting it very eartnestly and merging with the mantra on the first day itself as though i had known of it, probably some of my carry-forward from past lives.

The first session was mindblowing. i was already judging him when i saw him first on the stage. He was looking towards my direction continuously since he walked in, firstly which i ignored thinking why would he look at me and that he was probably looking at someone else in my direction. He wasted no time and sat and without any words on the first day itself asked everyone to close their eyes. No talks, bhajans, greetings, nothing. He went into silence and soon the whole venue was having vivid experiences, some crying and sharking, etc. i looked around and saw a kind of blissful chaos that perturbed me. Then i heard him saying keep eyes closed and i shut my eyes. What happened next was unbelievable to me for a long time since then. I heard my skull cracking wide open from the top and at first i was jolted and attentive. Being scared, i continued thinking that it was my imagination hoping that this thinking would ease my fear. Very soon there was another cracking and this time it was clear. Something told me that my head has not cracked though, but i wanted to desperately open my eyes and check but something in me did not want to open the eyes. This followed by many other jolting experiences throughout my body and after an hour or so, it all subsided. He sang a bhajan for a long long time and then as it subsided, he got up for a break. i was no more the same. i was singing the bhajans sitting there, deeply engross – i remember it was the bhajan ‘Satnaam Shri Wahe Guru’.

My friend wanted to talk to me but i was in no mood to talk. A strange peaceful silence had overtaken me. Three days was blissful and we could not resist but continue our registration for the next even – Shambhavi healing too! After these two healing programs we returned. Life was never the same again.
