Shivratree 2012   Leave a comment

On the 18th of February, a group of devotees went on the pilgrimage to Ganga-Talao. It was so much of fun to see all the hindus across the country going there. We had so much of fun whilst going to Ganga-Talao.

   

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

On the road, pilgrims were carrying huge and really nice Kawals, with a murti of Shiva or any other deity. There was one Kawal which had a Narshingadev as its main deity.

    

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

During the great night of Shivratri, many people came to the temple to assist the prayers whole night.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

A devotee also disguised himself and did the prayers.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Finally, after the last abishekam, we decorated the Shiva Lingam, which is the oldest in Mauritius, beautifully.

Swami making up the waves.   1 comment

During the picnic in January 2012, we stopped at a place and there the sea was really rough. We had to go on a small island and then we would see the nice waves. Not everyone went there, only few went as they were scared. But they don’t know what they missed. Swami was actually making the waves.

Here are some nice pictures that we took of Him:
 

Then we asked Swami to please make the waves come as we really wanted to see that. He just stared at us and all of a sudden He said “wave come…” As He said that, a big wave came and we all got wet. It was so amazing.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

This was such an amazing and unforgettable experience with Swamiji. Even though we were completely wet, we were really happy. He gave all of us what we wanted. We so lucky to have Him as our Gurudev.

Picnic with Swami Vishwananda   1 comment

Always when Swami Vishwananda goes to Mauritius, He takes one day off with all His devotees there. Then they rent a bus and go to different places and temples all over the island. They take drums and cimbles and during the whole trip in the bus, there is a big party. Like we can see below, Swami is dancing in the bus with His aunt.

We had a picnic near the seaside where Swamiji had big fun splashing around and wetting everybody. By so doing He was not only playing and having fun with us but He was also blessing everyone. It is only after that we realised it.

After being blessed by Swamiji, we all sat and we had such a nice bhajan session at the beach with all the devotees. Everything was so peaceful.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

This is how Swamiji takes care of us: He repeatedly gives us the chance to be with Him – one only has to be ready to get on the bus! He is always there for everyone and makes every single person happy: those who want to drum, to dance, to meditate, have fun….and all the while He gives His very unique blessings – and no-one notices! He never says anything! He wants that we feel it and become aware of it ourselves.

We’ve all experienced that: it becomes clear only much later that during a “small” and seemingly unimportant moment with Him, something very special took place…
