    Re: Guruji and Me

    Dear TDU,

    Thanks...

    I have been to Thiruvannamalai quite a lot and have been to thapovanam also. But now it is more than 10+ years. Got caught in this materialistic world and running around.

    My Guru was an ardent follower of Seshadri Swamigal. We had a group of people who formed a satsang and used to go to various temples once a year and do the abhishek in Swamimalai temple. All these people are way ahead in spirituality. Now nobody is there. It has left a big Vacccum.

    By chance I went through this thread... Also I am new to this forum..... After seeing this I became too emotional & senti....

    I always believe that, you dont go to temples/shrines or meet gurus.... You are being called.... Only then you will be in a position to GO". This has happened in my real life. During my school/college day I was very active with Sai Samithy and every week attend Bhajans etc for 7 active years. But I was never given an opportunity to visit either puttabarthy or shirdy even till date..... I had Dharshan of Baba only when he comes to Chennai..... On the contrary my father/sister who does not have much of belief in these things have visited both the places........:2thumbsup:

    Sometimes I do feel..... Forget everything and go backto thiruvannamalai and......... But family...... ties........ commitments........

    I really miss those golden period and the great people.....and waiting for my call........

    Thanks

    Re: Guruji and Me

    Radhe Krishna

    The visit from Guruji to Singapore in 1979, was begining of the most life changing year for me and my family. I was a teenager then. Its not just the bhajans and discourses. Its something words can't describe. Its the experience, the feeling. Its like our long lost soul found our saviour at last. Til today our swami never let us down. Everyone that I know and love has changed or moved on. But not swami. Swami Gnanananda is Guruji and Guruji is in Namaji and Namaji is as powerful as well. We are so lucky we got our swami to love and protect us. May we not for 1 second forget that. Aarcharya thevo bava! Aarcharyanuku anantha kodi namaskaram.........

    PS: I moved to melbourne more than a year ago. I was wondering if there is any devotees here where we can relate to. I am happy to support and join in the bhajans or mandali if you start one.

    Radhe krishna

    Re: Guruji and Me

    Hi all,

    Glad to see some new faces in this forum. I am sorry that I had completely forgot about the Lalitha Navarathina malai as I had mentioned in this thread earlier. I have to say only Swamigal reminded me of it through a devotee. I am giving the same here now.

    Swamigal's words are that this sloga has to be chanted everyday in our house. When one lights a pancha muga vilakku and chants this sloga 3 times, they have their prayers fulfilled and this was asked to be taken as Swamigal's upadesham for all. This is equivalent to the sloga "Lalitha Sahasranamam" and those who find it difficult to read the sahasranamam, can read this and get equal benefits.

    Re: Guruji and Me

    Hi TDU,

    Thank you very much for providing with that information.

    The following URL was also given by a devotee. I myself was very much moved by this site and the speech of Sri Haridos Giri Swamigal is really astounding. I have never been to any of His bajans or speech in my life. Even though I have missed them in the past, this site brings them all to life now. I would like to share this for the benefit of the devotees and for those who have not come across this particular link.

    Re: Guruji and Me

    I had the oppurtunity to be with with Shri Haridoss Giri Swamiji in Chennai.I have been to many of his "KadaKaletchebams",especially the Radha Kalyanam he conducted in NaradaGana Saba can never be for gotten.In that he he blessed every one in the name of Krishna and Radha whith his vibrant voice which can never be forgotten by those who had attended.
    His knowledge in Music as well his stage rendering Tallents can not be compared with any one.His scholarly rendition of the slokas,events from puranas are real vibrations for the spritual souls.
    I am happy to see a thread on him here.

    At the outset, I offer my apologies to the Administrators and other friends in this
    august forum. I registered my name here ,not knowing that this is exclusively
    for ladies. Sorry again.

    I am very keen, as Editor of "GNANA OLI ", to collect rare photos of Sathguru
    Sri Gnananandagiri Swamigal, letters written by him to the devotees and the
    experiences of the devotees. I see in this forum that many of fellow-devotees
    have got some personal experiences and might possibly have some letters and
    photos with Swamiji. I shall be grateful if my fellow-devotees can send me
    such photographs, xerox copies of letters and write-up on their experiences.
    These will be useful to others; We will publish them in the journal.

    The address is : The Editor, GNANA OLI, Thapovanam PO, (via) Villupuram RMS,
    PIN code 605756, Tamilnadu, India. My personal id is nrpatanjali@yahoo.com

    Thanks and pranams to all,

    Sincerely,
    N.R.Ranganathan.
