Samasta jana kalyane niratam karunamayam Namami chinmayam devam sathgurum brahma vid varam satgurum brahma vid varam Hari om amma Hari om , Hari om Hari om It is such a wonderful moment for me now to be with this legendary couple Shri B.K.Birlaji and Smt. Sarla Birlaji. In our shastras saints are glorified to the highest. And here are one couple whom the saints are very fond of. It is not one or two, a galaxy of saints were very fond of this couple. Amma when did you meet our Pujya Gurudev Swami Chinmayanandaji. I don’t remember which year we met. But long long ago. What are the fond memories that you recollect of Gurudev? When he used to come here … he was wonderful no? That we all know. He would tell me that I am writing some letters. You send your grand-daughter Mridula to my room. I will write down the letters and she will put it in an envelope nicely and then go to post-office box, put it in there and then come back. So this … And in the morning at 5 o’clock he would start. Phataphat phataphat he used to write. Then clip … put it. And then – ‘Mridula do this, Mridula do this way’. He was very fond of Mridula and Mridula was also very fond of him. I want to inform you that we all know that he is a very big man. Smiling also. … with small smile … Ashirwad Ashirwad. Swamiji was in America. He had his heart problem and all that. So many people were looking after it. I used to speak to him every day. So … I spoke to him. He was very happy and all that. Then one day he said – ‘you know these people here they don’t know what is what. In India we all know that we have God in our heart. These people had to open my heart … then only they knew that God is in my heart. … That I never forget. Swami Akhandanandaji had an operation done. Gurudev had come here. Swami Akhandanandaji also stayed with us. He was in the hospital. Gurudev went to see him in the hospital. Before the pravachan they used to have .. . the children of Chinmaya Mission … they used to do some drama or something like that. Once they did … Gurudev is there and other people are there. So our Shrikant Mantri’s daughter … she became Gurudev. And she kept like that and … just like Gurudev! Swamiji was very happy. you know When Gurudev came here once, one Amma walked upto him and she said – O I want peace. Gurudev I want peace. So Gurudev was always laughing and joking. So he said – O Amma why didn’t you tell me before. I left that bottle of peace syrup on my table. I would have brought it for you and given you a few drops. He was always hilarious like that. Very much. There must be many other moments like that where you know Amma you must have experienced with Pujya Gurudev. It is so wonderful that Amma like and Papaji were part of the organisation. Many activities whatever financial help Gurudev wanted … Papaji was always there to help him out. For Gurudev if you do anything it is not obliging. That is true Amma. It is obliging myself. Thank you so much Amma. Thank you Papaji. Hari OM !
