Much Awaited Event

Sadhguru's visit to Bangalore
 It all started when we attended the volunteers meet on 21st November. The only thought "What can I do for my Guru" stamped all the "What about me"s and stretched my physical limitations. Although I had to go on telling "Sadhguru is coming to Bangalore" "Sadhguru is coming to Bangalore" more than a hundred times, I felt wonderfull when infoming the public that my Guru is comming to Bangalore. I feel thinking about the Guru in some way or the other is a great sadhana on its own. Volunteering went by very fast and soon, the day dawned when Sadhguru had to come to Bangalore. Kapila Akka and I were standing in the reception with brochures. The brochures flew out of our hands like as though a strong wind was blowing. It seemed like there was no end to the people entering the hall. As the crowd increased, we all felt very happy.  Then suddenly, I was informed that Sadhguru was already inside the hall. From outside, we saw him. Slowly, tears of joy rolled down my cheeks. Since I was in the reception, I was unable to listen to Sadhguru's conversation properly. The next day, Sadhguru was conducting sathsang for all the meditators. I expected the same to happen to me the next day as well. I consoled myself. Even if I sit in the last row, His grace will always be there.
The next day arrived soon. I got a call from Abhi akka that I was in the practice correction. She asked me to finish correction and be seated in the front row. I couldn't believe my ears! Front row!! Infront of Sadhguru! I couldn't control my tears!
In the sathsang, I saw a different Sadhguru. It was like a father was sitting and sharing his experience with his children. For everything, my response was only tears, tears and more silent tears. I did not intend to stop my tears at all. If not in front of the Guru, then where else shall I shed my tears? The experience i gained from Sadhguru is not explainable. Hearing the "Maha Devaya Namaha" song, sitting under the same roof under which Sadhguru is also seated... what else does a meditator want?
"Thank you" is a very small word to thank all the people who are instrumental in arranging Sadhguru's visit to Bangalore.
Thank you volunteers; Thank you organizers... Thanks everyone!
