Shrimad Rajchandra Mission Dharampur


17th - 18th Jun '17

Shibir 6: Vivekchudamani


Numerous Seekers Gather for Shibir
Devotees gathered at Shrimad Rajchandra Ashram Dharampur on the evening of Friday, 17th June 2017 for the sixth shibir of the great text; 'Vivekchudamani' written by the learned Indian philosopher poet Sri Adi Shankaracharya.

Pujya Gurudevshri, despite the discomfort and pain caused by a severe inflammation in the right eyelid, compassionately conducted pravachans and participated in Ashram activities in a state of complete equanimity. The inflammation was diagnosed as severe orbital cellulitis in the right upper eyelid and to ensure that the activities continued as planned, He underwent intravenous antibiotic treatments.

Pujya Gurudevshri expounded on Brahmabhavna, further explaining the essence of ‘Advaita’ or Non-dualism with the powerful phrase ‘Tat Tvam Asi’ or 'That Thou Art'; a concept that suggests that Parabrahma and you are one. Pujya Gurudevshri also described the nature of Brahma through several intrinsic qualities, which generated a drive to pursue the experience of the Self through deeper study and meditation.

On Sunday morning, devotees present in the Ashram were blessed with the opportunity to celebrate Father’s Day with their Beloved Master. After a poignant introduction and a heart touching dance performance, members of the first ever group created: the Study Group shared the fatherly care that they had received from Pujya Gurudevshri. Today, members of this group lead exemplary lives devoted to seva and sadhana.

Tears of gratitude and devotion rolled down the eyes of devotees as Pujya Gurudevshri, selflessly conducted the shibir, without giving any heed to the pain. The gathered were truly elevated witnessing the detached and blissful state of their Sadguru.
