Giving unasked…

Sri Swami Nirvananandaji Maharaj (Sujji Maharaj), a disciple of Swami Brahmananda, was one of the Vice-Presidents of the Ramakrishna Order. I had the blessed fortune of being initiated by him at our Mumbai Ashram within the sanctum of Holy Mother’s Temple. On this auspicious occasion of Sri Guru Purnima, I am happy to highlight an inspiring incident in my early life – how he guided me, giving me his divine grace unasked.

In 1976, I joined the Training Centre in Belur Math.  When I went there, I was quite eager to see my Gurudev who I heard was at that time staying in Belur Math and had just returned from Narendrapur. The first day was a lovely day and we, brahmacharins were getting introduced to many of the traditions of Belur Math. Though I could not contain my curiosity, yet I was not bold enough to ask where and when I can have ‘darshan’ of my Gurudev. Unable to get any clue, that after noon, I decided to roam around the place near the river Ganga.

Swamiji's House

I saw the rear-side of a two-storey building which, from a distance was shown to us as the building where Swami Vivekananda’s room is situated. There was a flight of steps leading down to Ganga. The fresh breeze that was flowing was mesmerizing and I felt the air to be so pure in contrast to the polluted air of Kanpur from where I had just come. Getting down to Ganga for the first time after reaching Belur Math brought an inexplicable feeling of reverence to mother Ganga. Seeing the flowing waters gushing forth I was happy to murmur a hymn of Adi Shankara in praise of Mother Ganga.

I sprinkled some water on my head, uttering “Om Namah Shivaaya”. A few blissful moments passed in silence. When I turned on the steps I could not believe my eyes: there on the balcony was my Gurudev. I was simply stunned and made my mental prostrations from there itself and straight walked into that building in which Swamiji had lived. My Gurudev seemed to be in a supremely happy mood and I was beside myself with boundless joy.

The last I had seen him was in Varanasi in 1974, four years after He had blessed me with diksha in Bombay. What surprised me most was while I did not expect him to remember any of my home details, but the moment he saw me he smiled and asked, “How are your parents in Bombay?”. I was happy to tell him that by his blessings and the grace of Holy Trio, I could come to Belur Math to undergo proper monastic training and would be there for another two full years. On hearing this, he advised me to stay focused on the studies as well as sadhana and instructed me to come to his place as often as possible.

My Gurudev at that time, had a senior Swami serving as Secretary to him and also one monk and a brahmachari were also attendants to him. The attendant-Swami used to keep ‘sandesh’ prasad for me. This prasad would be taken from the remaining portion of his eating from the plate. He was daily served with two ‘sandesh’ that would come straight from the main Temple after the mangalaarati offerings. My days went on happily at Belur Math.

At the Training Centre we were studying different philosophies. One day in the class there was a stimulating discussion on Incarnations. During the discussion, certain queries posed by some co-brahmacharins raised a doubt in my mind about the validity of worshipping Sri Ramakrishna. If Ramakrishna does NOT exist , ‘the doubt’ told me why at all I should have renounced my hearth and home. Was I not then doing something blindly? How to know? Who would confirm that Sri Ramakrishna still existed?

Two days passed without my getting a proper answer to my doubt. Oh! what a period of painful agony! I could not think well for those two days. On the third day I felt like going and asking my Gurudev in spite of the instructions from authorities not to disturb him as he had ailed for some time. He was indeed a Deva Purusha, shining one because in his presence one could feel a light emanating, as it were, from his body in spite of his old age. Whoever visited him would naturally like to stay a minute with him, so that they could tell him their spiritual problems.

So when I went there that blessed morning and made saashtaanga pranaam to him, I found his eyes half closed while sitting on a settee. No one was there in the room. My touch of his holy feet perhaps brought him to outward consciousness and he looked at me with his benign glance. I entreated him to bless me. When I tried to get up from the floor, he placed his right hand on one of my shoulders, and he also slowly tried to get up from his sitting position. There, standing for a while, he, in his own pace, started walking towards the window. I also accompanied him, and when I stood there, he turned to me and said, “Look through this window? What do you see?”

I said, “ Swamiji! I am seeing Sri Ramakrishna temple”.

The rear-view of the temple was clearly visible. Even the staircase – that goes up to the ‘shayan-ghor’ where Sri Ramakrishna’s sleeping bed is kept – was visible.  When you come down the steps one can actually without any hindrance enter the ‘shrine-ghor’ where the holy image of Sri Ramakrishna resides.

The methods adopted for worshipping Personal God are, in fact, significant in that it facilitates the devotee to mentally identify  the real physical needs of God in line with humans. Therefore, a devotee is able to serve the Master as if he is ever alive in flesh and blood. Standing and looking through the window, my Gurudev told me, “Well, every morning at mangalaarati time, I come and stand here, and see (pointing to his eyes by gesture) through these eyes.  I see very clearly Sri Ramakrishna, getting up from his bed, going down the stairs, and coming into the sanctum, ‘garbha-griha’ and merging into the marble image. You know, every day I see His movement.”

Listening to his inspiring words, my ‘doubt ‘ in a moment just vanished. With what doubt I came to him, I did not need to put that question to him, because he knew the question that was troubling me, and gave the answer unasked! That was Srimat Swami Nirvananandaji Maharaj who was a direct disciple of Swami Brahmanandaji, the ‘mind-born’ son of Sri Ramakrishna.

      Dear Amit
      Happy that this Post has caught your attention.
      I used to wonder at the deep devotion of your father towards my Gurudev. Once, along with revered Chhorda Maharaj, I went to your home in Ranchi town. Your father was narrating his memorable experiences he had had with Swami Nirvananandaji Maharaj. Every evening he would reach the Sanatorium to sit with my Gurudev and listen to his nectarine words. On the last day, he wished that he would do a saashtaanga pranaam to him before his departure from Ranchi. Alas! on that day, your father was delayed; and when he reached the Sanatorium, Swamiji had already left by car.
      He was so disappointed that he told Chhorda Maharaj that even up till this day he was lamenting his inability to meet my Gurudev. Chhorda Maharaj told your father that what he could not do on that day he might do so at that very moment. Suddenly turning and pointing to me, he declared, “Here is this Swami! He is a disciple of Nirvananandaji Maharaj!”
      Till that time, your father did not know who my Gurudev was. The moment he heard who I was, your father fell flat on the ground and with tears in his eyes he made saashtaanga pranaam to me, saying, ‘Seeing the son is equivalent to seeing the father.’
      I was speechless at his devotion.
      Does this not remind you of the famous face to face meeting between Brahmanandaji and Swamiji on his return from the West?

    Thanks to Maharaj for sharing this anecdote with us. How sacred the bond between Guru and disciple is! And this story demonstrates how well He knows the heart, mind, and soul of His disciples. How moving it is to read how the Guru graced Maharaj with his darshan and also finally dispelled Maharaj’s unexpressed doubts. Even the sandesh prasad which came to Maharaj through the attendant devotee was only possible through the Guru’s will. It makes one marvel at the Glory and Grace of the Guru.

    When I started reading “GIVING UNASKED…” it didn’t cross my mind that this article is written on the occasion of Guru Purnima!!
    It is for the first time I have read an account of Reverence which A Sannyasin carries in his heart for his Revered Guru.
    I always used to wonder, How an Evolved Soul must be feeling for his Guru?
    Adarneeya Maharajji, your sharing such feelings with us, spiritual Aspirants and Devotees clearly shows love and compassion you carry for devotees of Holy Trio.

    Yes, my mind sails to Belur Math and rests on Swamiji’s room and see the rear view of Temple! A blissful personal account you have shared with us all. Self could see Sri Thakur in my meditation.
    Your doubt came to me also in my earlier days, say in 1976 to 78 when i just got initiated by Paramapojaneeya Sri Sri Prabhu maharaj. Every time He makes us realise that He lives constantly with us.
    The clear path showed by Sri Sri Nirvananandaji made my mind soar high. Spiritual elixirs pour out from you so smoothly and raises the kundalini shakti when we sit for meditation that includes such noble ideas you have kindly narrated.

    What you have opined is absolutely true! Seeing the omnipresence of a Paramahamsa is a higher state of mind and in the initial stages of spiritual life seeing Him in His murty or picture is a stepping stone for progress. And to help us only our Vedanta accepts all kinds of worship from a stone to a tree, to beasts and birds and to humans and to all beings whether living or inert.

      Many thanks for your most encouraging words!
      In 2005, I experimented first with creating casual Blogs giving some news of the TB Sanatorium where I was Head till Feb 2007 in India. For instance many of you, readers, might not have seen this Blog created in 2006!
      I could see the usefulness of this Blog method of communication when the number of internet users among our devotees grew leaps and bounds. Initially when I sent those early Blogs to monks and devotees, they looked askance at my new effort! It took some time for many to get acclimatized to the emerging technology. I am not surprised when a few, even today, do nose twitching at my Blog!!
      But I must admit, overall, the response from the devotees and monks is overwhelming. I too feel I am spending usefully my leisure hours in the ‘knowledge society’. After coming to South Africa, due to the somewhat easy availability of internet facility courtesy enlightened devotees, I began keeping this blog. It is nothing but a diary where ‘personal’ views are jotted for ‘public’ view!
      And thanks to those who visit this blog site again and again!
