Bye Aban Mummy

My darling mother passed away yesterday. She was called Aban mummy by everyone. She was more or less the universal mom. She had been a victim of paralysis and it’s terrible consequences for a very long time and finally she is pain free. She is in a much better place than she was while her […]

Fabulous at Forty!

28th September was promising to be an incredibly busy day. Everything we had planned for Dinesh’s 40th birthday was going to come together all at once. I didn’t see much point in pretending that there was no surprise, so I just told dinesh point blank that he was to leave Vyas Kuteer and come back […]

No one is saying anything much on the mike. It’s just the chants of the Poojas. On Dinesh’s birthday, Gurudev gave […]

Asking Gurudev…

The other day in the middle of a discussion, someone said, let’s just ask Gurudev. And that lead to my experiences with asking Gurudev questions… The first thing to remember when asking Him a question is, it should be specific and well researched. You cannot ask Him, Gurudev what should I do next? You need […]

Happy Birthday to Us!

Come September, Dinesh and I both celebrate our birthday … Preferably we would love to celebrate our birthdays with Gurudev and this year He was in the ashram for both the days, but only in the morning. He had a fairly early morning flight to catch on both the days. So breaking away from tradition, […]

My Inward Journey

The journey from head to heart is just a few inches, but it is quite a journey! I was giving my entrance exams for IIT. I had studied enough, knew most things I needed to know, but the morning of the exam, I had a terrible headache. Dad had learnt some touch healing, spiritual thingie […]
