1. Report on Rev. Master's visit to Guwahati between the 8th & 10th October 2011
The 8th of October, 2011 was a long awaited and significant day for the North Eastern part of India as Rev. Master came to Guwahati on this day after a gap of 18 years. Abhyasis from all the North-Eastern States as well as various parts of India came to take part in this gathering.
The next day, Rev. Master spent the entire day at the zonal ashram site. The proposed ashram site is located 25 km away from the main city and surrounded by serene village greenery and a view of the hills. Rev. Master enjoyed his ride through the village and on reaching the ashram site, was welcomed with a traditional Bihu dance.
After the satsangh, Rev. Master was welcomed in the traditional manner of each of the seven states of North-East India. In his speech, he highlighted the beauty of the ‘seven’ comparing it with the seven swaras of music. He said that only one note cannot make music. Each of the seven swaras are important. Despite the fact that we come from different states, cultures and languages, our goal is the same and so there must be the feeling of oneness within us. Thus, the highlight of Master's talk was how we are not from different states and different cultures, but are human beings first.
After satsangh, Master executed the land registration formalities of the new Ashram. After evening satsangh, Master named the zonal ashram ‘JYOTI’ and instructed that satsangh be conducted there every Sunday.
The next day, Rev. Master inaugurated the Meditation Hall of the Guwahati City Ashram. He conducted satsangh and addressed the gathering. Following are excerpts from his talk:
Sadhana is a way of life. It is like the breathing of life. Like we need food to sustain the physical body, transmission is the food for the spiritual body. If the spiritual body is not taken care of, then the soul dies.
Keeping the flame alive inside is spirituality.
That evening, Rev. Master left for New Delhi. Some photographs taken during his stay at Guwahati as well as New Delhi can be seen by clicking on the following link.
