@Ramadi along with these stories you are bringing back to me a lot of nostalgic memories too. These stories were the first forwards that you used to get circulated among our batch when we joined IT industry. Along with digesting those messages once more, my eyes too became moist when I remembered those carefree days. Big smile
Already training track is making me a lot nostalgic Big smile

  This is something strange yet true

 swami hari doss giri was a child prodigy
he was an engineer by profession but lost interest in worldy pleasures and embraced sanyasa
he became an ardent devotee of swami gyanaanadha 

swami hari doss giri made sampradaya bhajans popular and his bhajans on krishna are immortal

i was watching a programme on doordharshan where he was singing a bhajan and got excited in the middle and shared a true incident 

swami hari doss giri had agreed for a bhajan programme in kumbakonam ( a famous city of temples in tamil nadu)
he left for the place a day before to have a dharshan of his guru swami gyanandha whose ashram was on the way to kumbakonam

he reached the afternoon the day before the programme and did all sort of service to his guru
swami gyanandha was pleased 

swami hari doss giri and his disciples had to leave by the night train to kumbakonam so that they can reach there by morning and give the bhajan programme at 11 am

it was evening and the disciples started to pack things
swami gyananadha said to swami hari doss giri that he wanted to spend more time with him and let the disciples leave tonight and he can leave by tomorrow early morning

swami hari doss giri couldnt object he agreed and the disciples left kumbakonam while swami hari doss giri was busy doing seva to his guru

they discussed all night  and early morning swami hari doss giri went to his guru's place to take his blessings and leave for kumbakonam as he had to be there by atleast 10 am

swami gyanandha said to have some coffee and then leave swami hari doss giri agreed
now he said he was getting late and have to leave now

swami gyanandha said to have the breakfast and then leave
swami hari doss giri was in a fix now
he couldnt go against his guru's words 

and relucttantly agreed
swami gyanandha started discussing various things and swami hari doss giri was thinking of his programme in kumbakonam

it was already 9 and then 9 30
swami hari doss giri said he has committed to a bhajan programme in kumbakonam and he was getting late

swami gyanandha said not to worry he will be present at the right time before the start of the programme

swami hari doss giri thought within himself how could that be possible as its already around 10 45 and he cant reach kumbakonam now

the audience in the hall were ready to listen to the bhajan 
swami hari doss giri disciples were puzzled and  were ready with their percussions

it was 10 50 am
hari doss giri lost all hopes and closed his eyes 
thinking of his guru gyanandha

he said to himself
guruji save my day, i have agreed for the programme and all the bhakthas will be waiting for the programme to start 
tears rolled down his cheeks

he thought of swami gyanandha and nothing else

gyanandha raised his right hand and swami hari doss giri who had his eyes closed in the ashram
opened his eyes to see himself in the stage 

the disciples were awstuck
they couldnt realise it
even swami hari doss giri himself couldnt believe he was in kumbakonam and a minute before he was in the ashram



 we have heard of miracles happeing in various yugas but have we ever heard of such a  miracle in recent times

this happened during 1970s

this is called pure bhakthi and swamihari doss giri himself narrated this story 

believe in your guru or god
surrender to him
he will save you

Ramadi that is called faith. I have personally felt if you ask any qeustions with complete faith to lord he will answer you. There are lot of times while in confusion I had asked for help with complete faith to Lord Krishna and every time he has given the direction Big smile

shruthi
swami hari doss giri during his narration didnt say about faith
he said the bhakthi for his guru made him reach the place on time

bhakthi and faith are different
when you have faith , you expect something
when you have bhakthi, you expect nothing
