The glory of the ancient
culture of Bharat is beyond description. The glorious traditions of
Bharat are a matter of pride not only for its residents, but the
entire world. However, with the passage of time and on account of the
growing influence of the western culture, this great tradition is
being forgotten. For example, the names of the years in the Hindu
calendar like Prabhava, Vibhava, Shukla, Pramoduta, Prajotpatthi, etc.
have a profound significance. But people have forgotten these names
and follow the western calendar consisting of January, February, etc.
(As Bhagavan was continuing with His discourse, He started showing
signs of uneasiness as the emergence of the Atma Lingam was imminent.
He sat down and signalled the students to start singing Bhajans. After
a few moments, a golden lingam emerged from Bhagavan’s mouth and He
held it aloft for everyone to see. Then Bhagavan retired to the
interview room for a short while, where two more Lingams emerged.
Thereafter, He returned to the dais and resumed His discourse.)
No danger can ever befall this body whatever may happen. In fact, this
body has just been relieved of a great burden. The body was not given
proper food and nourishment for the last two months. During the
process of Lingodhbhavam (the emergence of the lingam), the body of
course, felt some strain. However, I assure you that you need not be
worried about it. I have dedicated this body to you. It is your
responsibility to take care of this body.
I could see that the students
were very much anxious and greatly concerned about my well-being. Only
I can understand the feelings of my students. In fact, my students are
my life breath. The students are prepared to sacrifice their very life
for the sake of Swami. I too am prepared to sacrifice my life for
Dear children! I will protect you wherever
you are. I am utilising all my time for your sake. My only aim is to
see that you are always happy. No danger will ever befall this body.
Be assured of this. Always remember God, wherever you are. Whatever
work you may undertake, consider that as Swami’s work. I will always
look after your welfare. In fact even your parents may not be able to
understand and appreciate your feelings as well as I do. May you come
up in life and attain exalted positions, my dear ‘Bangaru’ children!
Whatever has happened has happened, past is past. Suffering for the
body is quite common. It just comes and goes like passing clouds.
Therefore, from today, abandon all your worries and be happy. I bless
you all that you may pass the examinations with flying colours. Why
fear when I am here? I am always with you, I do not have any other
residence, but for your heart. In fact, your heart is where I dwell.
You may all go now, have your dinner and come back and join the Bhajan
singing throughout the night. I will come again during the night.
