It was a beautiful sunny Sunday morning of the 24th of March 2013. There was excitement in the air as we were getting ready to celebrate P.P. Suchit Dada and Poojya Samir Dada’s birthday at our Melbourne Upasana Kendra.
When we reached the Upasana Kendra, we realised that no one was immune to the cheer of the day!! Attending our beloved Bapu’s Upasana is always something that we look forward to every weekend. However, on that day, there was palpable enthusiasm in all of us.
We started off with our regular Upsana. But today, P.P. Dada, being as loving as He is, decided to give us a gift on the occasion of His birthday!! The Chandikakul Samvad CD had reached our Kendra and we were all set to have our first ever conversation with the divine Chandikakul!!
It is impossible to describe what we experienced during those 5 minutes. When Bapu told us that the Chandikakul would be sitting right in front of us to listen to what we have to say, all of us were very intrigued as to how it will feel. And in those 5 minutes, the proximity to Mothi Aai and her divine family was undoubted. When we opened our eyes after the Samvad, there were tears rolling down all of our eyes. It was probably one of the most intense experiences ever and we are truly Ambadnya that our loving Bapu, Aai and Dada thought us worthy of having this Samvad (conversation).
Now it was time to cut the Birthday cake. Our little Shraddhavans, Riyaveera and Neevsinh volunteered to cut the cake on behalf of P.P. Suchitdada and Poojya Samirdada. This was followed by a small tea and cake break (yummm)!!!
After that, we saw the video CD of P.P. Bapu’s Pravachan in which he addressed all of us to be fearless and recounted the greatness of our all-pervasive Gurukshetram Mantra.
The day and all the excitement should have tired us. However, we felt recharged and re energised instead. An impromptu session of Gunasankirtan followed which made us forget our lunch as well. It was well after 3pm when we realised that we hadn’t even had lunch!! Such is the greatness of the Parmatma trayi’s Gunasankirtan.
On that note, we concluded the joyous celebration of our beloved Dadas’ birthday. We are indeed Ambadnya to have experienced this day in its full glory!!!
Shree Ram !!!
