I just realised, it has been 15 years since I first met Swamiji. These 15 years have been the most amazing years of my life. I’ve grown professionally, became a husband, a father, a better citizen and above all, a better human being.
When I first met Swamiji he told me to start enjoying the small pleasures in life. A simple thought… but it has made a huge difference in my outlook towards everything. I no longer wait for the big events. I thank God and Swamiji each day for making today better than yesterday. The smile of your kids, the love of your partner, the blessings of your elders, each of these bring more joy when you start enjoying these small pleasures.
People look for long speeches from Gurus, but in the case of Swamiji, each spoken word has a deeper meaning. If we follow his words, over a period of time, we start realising the true meaning of his teachings.
Swamiji has been the guiding force in my life. Each day I pray for His good health and long life, so that He continues guiding more and more people on this planet.
