    Hello Members,

    This is a Disclaimer message. The original thread about the two Gurus - http://www.indusladies.com/forums/about-saints-and-spirituality/4812-guruji-and-me.html, in which many of you had participated is no longer active. I am instead starting this new thread for those devotees , who wish to discuss the life and times of both Sri Gnananda Swamigal and Sri Haridoss Giri here.
    I have copied most of the posts from that thread here and hopefully no information has been lost.

    Please do go through this thread and let me know
    Thanks

    Vandhana


    The Starter post in the original thread is given below:

    It was in 2003 September when I moved in as a P.G in a house in London owned by Mrs. Rani Kananayagam, I came to know about Swami Haridos Giri. Listening to his songs and pravachans lased with humour, I became an instant admirer of him. I was saddened to hear that he had attained jala samadhi in 1994. Swami Haridos Giri has many followers in Malaysia, Singapore, Srilanka, London and other parts of the world too. He inspired me to write songs, some of which I am giving below. These songs have come from my heart spontaneously and I could set tunes as well. I used to sing them during weekly bhajans in the house.

    Re: Guruji and Me

    I Agree Guruji Has A Wonderful Voice. I Had The Pleasure Of Knowing Him And His Guru Gnananada Swmaiji.swami Haridas Stayed In My Place In The 1970s And I Used To Attend All His Discourses. Radhe Krishna----his Songs On Krishna Are Still Lovely To Hear.

    So nice to see..

    My mom & her entire family are fond of his bhajans and my mom, when she was staying in thapovanam where Haridos Giri Swamigal would visit or stay as he was a great devotee of Sri Gnanananda. My mom would tell lots and lots of stories about them. Today, here, reading yrs' experiences!!!!

    Thanks, guys..

    Dear Members,

    The following Word Doc contains some anecdotes about the swamiji written by one of our members, that i was not able to copy over to this thread.

    Please note that the tamil font in the word doc is garbled. I cannot rectify it at this time.Please bear with me.

    Thanks

    Re: Guruji and Me

    it is so nice to know that so many rmember swamiji. I met gnananda swamiji when i just sat for my p.u.c. and as was leaving tapovanam he told that my results would be there and hat i have got good marks and will go into college . his age hen was over 100 and he looked so fit, walked so fast and had the most enviable baby sooth skin with not a wrinkle. he lived a true life of a swmiji where he ate simple little food once a day and in a room with no light.BUT his vision was very very good.it was nice to hear stories from him and get laddus that are hung in a bsaket in his room. sweet memories.

    Re: Guruji and Me

    Actually, my mom was staying there in thapovanm when she was pregnant with me and hence, she asked Him to name me and He named me too which is my gift or what to say!!!

    So, my mom would share lots of stories as she had months and months of experiences and my entire family, they all use to subscribe for Gnana oli every month. Even now, whenever go out(any of us), use to keep His photo with us as my mom strongly believes that He will bring us safely to home, isnt it??

    Before conclude this, thanks for sharing yr experience and pls do share more, if any. It is really nice to know abt Him a lot. FYI, i am forwarding all yr msgs to my cousin too!!

    Rgds.

    Re: Guruji and Me

    Very nice story to read and of course, about His Great powers too. Actually, this song, my mom would sing very often and did not realize the meaning until read yr msg(!) and have this book of Swamikal where the songs , the people use to sing in Thapovanam like navinikka manaminikka, naanmuhan navinil, aganidhadara etc.

    My mom would sing all Swamigal songs during navarathiri and she never keeps golu at my parent's place. Still, she considers Swamikal as a Ambal and do pooja, songs, neivedhyam just like they use to do in Thapovanam!!!

    Thanks.
