Sairam ,
Sharing today the third part of experience shared by sister Radha. Jai Sai Ram .

Shivamma Thayee temple Experience -3

A few months after the second experience, I thought that I should go and offer Kesari bath to Baba and distribute it to the students in school and the old age home associated with the temple.

I had called up the temple Pujari who is a very friendly person and told him that I will come the next day, and distribute it. He told me that I can come at 12 noon, lunch time. I made about 7 kgs of rawa kesari and took it to the temple exactly at 12 noon.

I was hoping that the prasad can be placed there during arati and naivedya and then I could distribute it. To my utter dismay, the temple was already closed. I was almost in tears. How will I offer it to baba now? I did not have the phone number of Pujari with me in my hand so baba guided me to go to the old age home.

Most of the elderly people were quite old and they were not in any position to give any information about the priest. Suddenly an elderly lady came from inside and offered to give me the priest’s mobile number. I called him and he recognized me immediately.

He apologized profusely to me and said that as he had to suddenly go into town that day they had finished the arati a bit early.

The temple pujas were completey entrusted with two brothers and both of them were also working at that time. Usually the eleder brother does the morning and night arati and the younger brother does the noon and evening arati. They take very great interest in the temple affairs and do it very sincerely despite being employed elsewhere.

However, the pujari told me that I could take the key from the lady and open the temple, offer the prasad to baba and then distribute it to all... For a few moments I could not believe what I was hearing.....

What.... me offer bhog to Baba with my own hands in the temple. what did I do to get this beautiful opportunity to touch baba, offer the prasad to him and do a tiny arati all by myself!!! I couldnt believe how merciful baba and amma have been to me.

Until that day, I hadnt offered sweets to baba in his mouth in a temple, though I do it to the idol in my home. So, there I was, I opened the temple, lit the lamp, placed the prasad at His feet and did a small arati. It is a lifetime experience to offer Bhog to Baba going so near to the idol. I seized the opportunity to touch the idol and kiss His Feet.

I could get an idea of how it would have been for all those devotees of Baba during His time in Dwarakamayi when they used to massage His legs and wash and touch His feet.

I also went down to the Shivamma thayee samadhi downstairs and offered Bhog to her too. This was the greatest day of my life.

I came back home after distributing the sweets to the elderly and children and feeling so happy. I hope baba makes me have faith and patience and makes me chant his name always like Shivamma Thayee.
May He bless all of us who crave to stay around His Holy Feet.

The strings of my life are in his hand,I am just a puppet at His Holy Feet.
