Dear Sister / Brother:
Rev. Master’s visit to Tiruppur, Tamil Nadu, India
Revered Master was in Tiruppur from January 19 to February 3, and stayed at the ashram which is beautifully ensconced in a grove of tall coconut trees. At least twice a day, He would sit outside in the open and talk to abhyasis. Arrangements were made in such a way that the large crowd of abhyasis had a great feeling of closeness and intimacy to the Master, without disturbing His freedom of movement and comfort.
He made frequent visits to the Diamond Jubilee Park, approximately 7 km from the ashram, which will be the venue for His 80th Birth Anniversary celebrations to be held in July. Almost every evening, Master drove to the Diamond Jubilee Park, inspected the work that had begun then sat down among abhyasis and enjoyed talking to them. As the red and orange globe of the sun went down the horizon, He answered questions of abhyasis. He said that it was for abhyasis to make use of Him. Service was the opportunity offered to them to achieve spiritual progress.
On the 21st of January, 2007, He lovingly agreed to lay the foundation stone for the Master’s Cottage at the Diamond Jubilee Park, following a satsangh at 7:30 am where abhyasis from several nearby centres were present. On subsequent days Master also visited nearby centers like Salem and Erode, where He spent time with abhyasis and initiated plans to cater to the needs of future generations of abhyasis.
On 2nd February, a large gathering of nearly 4,000 abhyasis had come for the one day celebration of Rev. Lalaji Maharaj's 134th Birth Anniversary. The celebration was held at the Diamond Jubilee Park. The morning Satsangh was conducted by Rev. Master, and was followed by the solemnisation of 14 weddings. Rev. Master gave a speech in which He emphasised the following points:
As observed by an abhyasi during this trip, Love for us all seems to be driving Rev. Master despite His physical constraints. Making of prefects, meeting with abhyasis, attending to His emails and sending prompt replies, telephone calls, issue of administrative orders and visits to Mission centres pack His day. The promptness and dispatch in all that He has to do for our welfare is amazing.
Rev. Master returned to Chennai on the 3rd of February via a flight from Coimbatore.
