Narration of Experiences (Anubhav Kathan)
Since the past few weeks, on each Saturday at 7.30 p.m. office members, including the two CEOs and deputy CEO assemble on the 5th floor of Happy Home for Anubhav Kathan. I am personally present along with Paurassinh. The Anubhav Kathan, which usually lasts for an hour or so, is a combination of live narration by a Shraddhavaan and viewing of Anubhav Kathans that have already been recorded on video.On Saturday last, we watched the video recording of the Anubhav Kathan by Dr. Ramansinh Umralkar, which had been narrated by him at Shree Harigurugram, late last year. What came out clearly from his experience was that how the impossible becomes easily possible and how certain death is warded off by the Sadguru’s infinite grace, if one reposes one’s faith completely in the Sadguru and follows the Sadguru’s command (aadnya) to the last word, without harbouring the slightest doubt.
Thereafter, we heard a live narration of experience by Mrs. Sarikaveera Leela who hails from Muscat. She narrated how her young son fell down from the second floor of the building in which they stay and came out unscathed, without a single broken bone or an open wound. What she conveyed through her experience is that (a) distance is no constraint for the Sadguru and (b) He comes to your aid even without your having asked for it - provided you have complete faith in Him.Listening to Anubhav Kathans not only reinforces our belief in our Sadguru but also tells us and teaches us how to respond in a challenging situation.All of us who have read the Shri Sai Satcharita are aware that rather than being a biography of Shree Sainath, it is actually a beautiful narration of anecdotes of how the bhaktas came to experience Shree Sainath and how Shree Sainath showered His grace on them. It has been narrated to us by Shri Hemadpant, based on his compilation of the experiences. But today, we are extremely fortunate to be able to hear first hand, or through video recordings, from the Shraddhavaans themselves, how they have experienced the grace of Param Poojya Bapu(Aniruddhasinh). In other words, we are actually privy to an audio visual Bapu (Aniruddhasinh) Charita!
We are now in the holy month of Shraavan. This is the month in which we should strive to do shravana bhakti, i.e. bhakti in the form of listening to the glories of the Sadguru.. I sincerely feel that all my friends should listen to atleast one experience of our Sadguru a day. I am confident this will surely have a far reaching impact on our progress on the path of bhakti.
