In my previous post on Narration of Experiences, I had dwelt upon the importance of Shravana Bhakti, i.e. bhakti in the form of listening to the glories of the Sadguru and why we should strive to watch and listen atleast one anubhav kathan per day. On last Thursday Bapu (Aniruddhasinh) had, during His discourse, asked us to chant the Gurukshetram Mantra as many times as possible in this holy month of Shraavan. He had promised us that he would chant the first line of the Gurukshetram Mantra – “Om Shree Datta Guravay Namaha” with each one of us whenever we chant the mantra during this holy month.
We are extremely fortunate that today Bapu planned a special Upasana for us, wherein we all chanted the Gurukshetram Mantra continuously for one hour, during which we chanted the mantra 27 times. It is important to know that when we are chanting any mantra or stotra, we are actually doing Shravana Bhakti, because we are also listening to what we are chanting.
I just cannot describe the feelings and emotions that overcame me when I was offering flowers to Trivikram amidst the chanting of the Gurukshetram Mantra. I am sure that those of you, who were present at Shree Harigurugram today, must have felt the same way.
So friends, let us all make up our minds to chant the Gurukshetram Mantra as many times as possible in a day, simultaneously giving due justice to all our duties and responsibilities, during this holy month of Shraavan.
