Dear AOL IL'ites, This thread is dedicated to our beloved Guruji, who's brought so much happiness, joy, peace, laughter, togetherness & compassion in our lives!! I'm starting this thread after chancing upon some AOL members here & thought it would be wonderful for fellow AOL members to join in here & share our experiences with the course, how we happened to do this course, AOL happenings in our cities & of course! our love for our dearest Guruji!!:mrgreen: Let me start with myself............I did the course in July 2005 in B'lore. At that point, i was working with a highly stressful job profile & desperately wanted to de-stress & bring that smile back on my face, which i had lost along the way & life for me seemed extremely complex, it was tough for me to accept anything or anybody for that matter easily or as it is. I was very sensitive & i used take everything very seriously. That's when my mother suggested that i do this course. I took her suggestion & enrolled for the course & thoroughly enjoyed it & felt completely rejuvenated!!! After that, i regularly attended follow up kriya sessions & satsang & the word stress vanished from my life forever. Guruji's grace, the knowledge he's imparted to us & the Sudarshan Kriya changed my attitude & perception of life. Now, i'm an extremely tolerant, patient, happy (who doesn't need a reason to be happy) person who can accept anything or anybody the way they are, without any expectations. I can smile through many an unpleasant person or situation. That's about my experience....hope you all will come forward to share your experiences or just about anything about AOL!!:mrgreen: P.S: Thanks Kurunji, for responding & supporting my suggestion of starting this thread. Jai Gurudev!! Ragini.
