Pragnesh Lakhani from Coventry, UK shares—
The Grace of a Saint
I was nervous, as I did not know what to expect. It was my first visit to Sandipani, and also my first Guru Poornima in the attendance of Pujya Bhaishri.
As I walked into the auditorium under the feet of ShriHari, I felt a beautifully overpowering mixture of uplifting devotional music, and pure love directed to one very special person; only then did I realise how many people’s lives Pujya Bhaishri had touched; and the overwhelming love that there was for Him from people from around the world.
As I joined the queue made up of people from all walks of life including the most successful—and people who where operating life-changing charities inspired by Pujya Bhaishri—to local people of India who saw Him as a Guru, I felt both humbled and honoured.
As I neared the front of the queue, I felt a mixture of excitement and humility, and then at long last, this was it— Pujya Bhaishri’s beautiful loving smile, faced me. I took his divine darshan and as he placed a Tulsi Mala on my head.
I knew “I had been blessed by a Saint.”
