Morning SessionTuesday bought the dawn of day 6 of Gram Seva and Navratri. The sixth day is dedicated to Maha Laxshmi and we started the day with Subrabhatam and recited prayers dedicated to Maha Laxshmi. Puppet Sir used the morning session to discuss the importance of our Stihi’s and how to make the distinction between external and spiritual world. The key message for our morning sessions was to understand that ‘I am not the body, I am not the mind, I am the Soul’ ultimately we should try to recognise I am not the body and the difficulties which we experience in daily life should not divert us from aligning our soul to eternal peace. It was also mentioned that we must trust Baba in his Divine plan which we are all a part of.
Gram Seva – Day 6Our sixth day of Gram Seva saw us go to the village of IC Colony where there are approximately 4000 people. Tuesday’s Gram Seva was a humbling experience for us. We worked closely with Swami’s students from the Prashanti Campus who have welcomed us with their Love over the past couple of days.
Afternoon Session - Lingashtakam verse 6Since the start of Gram Seva we have been fortunate that Puppet Sir has been taking us through the significance of the Lingashtakam verse by verse. Today we covered verse six of the Lingashtakam and the key points which Puppet Sir gave us was to; ‘…Every time we see God you should think that this is the first and last time you will see God…’. This will always ensure that you have a strong connection with Bhagawan at all times and not have periods where there are highs and lows in your spiritual devotion.
Our day then ended with Bhagawan’s afternoon Darshan where we were treated to Swami’s Divine discourse and Bhajans from Swami’s students.
