Poem for Shri Mataji

I was a little girl and one day, I wrote a poem and hid it behind Shri Mataji’s photograph. I was very careful and particular that my mother doesn’t find out as I didn’t want anyone to know about this poem. The next day I destroyed it.

After few months, Shri Mataji was coming to Calcutta and we had gone to the airport to welcome Her. We got the opportunity to offer flowers and do pranams individually to Her. When it was my turn, I offered flowers and bowed down. Shri Mataji said to me that She read the poem that I wrote and loved it. My mouth was open and all I could do was pranams.

  1. Yes, Shruti, I have also had such experiences and was overawed each time.
    I wrote ‘Tere Charana de Heth’ in Dharamsala. When we went to Ganpatipule in Dec 84 , Shri Mataji asked all leaders wives to come on stage. At that time Uncle was Dharamsala leader so I was pushed up on the stage by others. I went up to hold the sari and Shri Mataji said why dont you sing. So I went down to sing. Opened my book and the page with this song opened up. I thought well should I sing it so as the song was new my whole attention was on the words. The shringar started. I finished the song and as perfect timing the ladies parted and we saw Shri Mataji in full glory. The ladies later told me that each stanza was going exactly as a shringar on stage.

  2. Jai Shri Mataji !!!

    In Guwahati i got self realization through Dipak Agarwal in Dec.2002. I had the opportunity of having darshan of our Dear Mother on Her 80th Birthday. From the Nirmalanjali book i was mentally reciting ‘Pratasmarami Nirmala vadanaravindam……’ when i completed i thought in the vast ocean of Sahajis if Shri Mataji looks at me i would beileve that She heard it and accepted this Nirmala Pancharatnam Stotram. Lo!!! Shri Mataji looked at me and smiled beautifully. Yes Didi, She knows and accepts everything. Though i do not Hindi properly, after coming to Sahajayoga i composed many bhajans in Her praise , most of them for my personal satisfaction only .

    As regards Deepadidi, today only i came to know that she composed the ‘tere charanade…. bhajan. We invariably sing this bhajan in escasy during pujas. i literally dance to the words .

    Jai Shri Mataji !
