Respect

For 7 years, every week Guruji (Sri Sri Ravi Shankar) used to send out a page of Knowledge to be read out and discussed at the satsangs happening all over the world. He used to call it the Knowledge fax … This was before email became popular enough for everyone to use :)

Every week we waited eagerly for what Guruji would say through these Knowledge Sheets, many times we would be with Him while He dictated them out and we compiled them. The atmosphere would always be full of wisdom coupled with big doses of mirth. And the Knowledge sheets themselves are always profound, sometimes quite funny…

Dinesh and i decided to do a commentary on them, reliving those precious moments spent with Guruji, reading them out for you and peppering them with stories and examples of how this Knowledge from Him has come alive for us in our lives.

Re reading them now, after so many years of Sadhana, Seva and Satsang has made us realise just how beautiful and precious these words from Him are … We are thoroughly enjoying ourselves making these videos, we know you will love watching them too.

Birthday Gifts – I

This year there definitely was a lot of celebration on both our birthdays. Dinesh was just out of typhoid on the eve of my birthday, his IV was removed on the 21st. As a birthday gift to me, he wrote me this poem that i was not allowed to edit at all (so i just added one line to it, the one in the bracket)…

A Conspiracy of the angels.

The heavens felt there was something missing in the play called this World

Something had to be done,

a miracle, magic or a mixture of both…

The angels conspired

Called the devas and the siddhas, the yakshas and the gandharvas

Proclaimed we need a character,

Who will connect the dots and complete the picture,

A perfect actor…

They send arrows in the right direction

And Yezdi fell in love  and Aban came tumbling soon after.

Having set the ball rolling, it didn’t take long for the fruit of labor to emerge.

The angels exclaimed “Dil se jo kuch mango, to milega asli alphonso”.

Thus the angels conspired and made sure…

Out popped blessings in the form of Bawa dear.

Brought up on a healthy dose of Parsi values as seeds

Of good thoughts, good words and good deeds

An exemplary life of sadhana, Seva and satsang

Sprinkled with musicals, board games and repartees of a sharp tongue

Worthy of a few biographies, or movies in years to come.

Maths when taught by Bawa the Mathemagician, to you

Even the angels come down and can’t but crack up too,

How sahaj it is for him to bring laughter in any subject

Patted the angels themselves (on their backs) on how well

They have conspired on their doted object.

Shhh is silence says Guruji, and the wonder of silence is shhhh wah! (Shiva)

Ba we say is talks and words, and the King of words is Ba wah!

The angels conspired and said Jai Gurudeva,

Oh what a blessing is our darling Bawa.

Myth and Mythology say he is very strict,

You better toe the line, else you get picked.

Legend has it that his third eye blinks

Faster than a hummingbirds wings.

But, as you drop your biases and fear

And approach him with a heart sincere

You will discover that he is nothing but a mere

Ball of warm fuzzy love, laughter and cheer!

While enjoying Bau’s glorious food,

along with the exceedingly good mood,

there’s always the gnawing anxiety

Inspite of the quantity, and the delicious variety.

Whether a second helping is ever a possibility…

Given the young and hungry numbers

And the attack of a million fingers!

If there was ever an Annpoorneshwara

The angels conspired,

Why should it not be our own Bawa.

When his lovely piano, the Bawa romances,

The gandharvas call on the angels and do their dances,

During the celebration his board game nights bring,

The angels rejoice in his victory

Or his imminent defeat to boonkie ping.

He has mastered the skill and the art,

Of living on the edge and making it smart

Of seemingly doing nothing and achieving a lot

Of all things imaginable there’s nothing that he cannot

do in this whole wide world and beyond.

The angels raised their glasses, and toasted

To the conspiracy, they have hosted,

Oh! What a blessing is Bawa, they boasted.

Around him prevails a sense of sizzle and calm,

A feeling that you are sitting with a live bomb,

The delicate balance of your life is tipped

And yet you feel hunky dory and pip pipped.

The angels conspired and all they could say

Oh what a blessing is bawa, ever at play.

The only thing predictable about him is his unpredictability

The only sure thing about him is his clarity.

Oh what a blessing is Bawa the incredulity

The angels couldn’t help boasting about their vanity.

The 42nd earth year of this conspiracy begins merrily

(The Bawa reminds his boonkie ping he is 41 only)

Besides other things, you are ensured of an answer verily

To the life, the universe and everything

But I still wonder on the blessing

that is Bawa, sings the boonkie ping!

Jai Gurudeva!
