PUNE: Sadhu Vaswani Mission held a historic program on the occasion of Cheti Chand – the Sindhi New Year. The Mission organized the Bhoomi Puja of the Sacred Samadhi of Dada J.P. Vaswani. It will be built in the same spot where his sacred pyre was lit, next to his Master Sadhu Vaswani’s samadhi. A model of the unique design planned for the Sacred Samadhi was also displayed. The shrine will become a place of pilgrimage where many come to pay their homage to the One whom they revered and from whose flowing fountain of love they experienced joy and peace.
The day began at 7 AM with recitations from the scriptures and kirtan. 108 havans and 108 times recitation of the Gayatri Mantra was done. A Shastra Puja (worshipping of tools), inscribing Dada on them was performed.
Later, the 11:30 AM session featured Satsang, a talk by Didi Krishna Kumari, and discourses of Sadhu Vaswani and Dada J.P. Vaswani. Didi Krishna in her talk said,
“The word Samadhi means union with God. Every single moment of Beloved Dada’s life was spent in Samadhi. His every thought, every action emerged from oneness. We once asked Beloved Dada, “What should we do to experience this oneness with the divine?” In response, he gave us three ideals. The first was the purity of heart, the second was unwavering faith, and the third was love for God and his creation. We all wish that our lives too should culminate in this union.”
At 1 PM, the auspicious ceremony of Bhoomi Puja was performed with the breaking of the coconut and amid resounding chants, the sacred work of digging the grounds began. Devotees from across the world joined the service – kar Seva (Seva with hands). An atmosphere of enthusiasm and devotion reverberated in the Mission.
Dignitaries and spiritual heads attended and graced the occasion.
Father Thomas Dabre, Bishop of Pune said, “Dada verily understood the essence of religion; he lived the message of religion.”
Dr. K.H. Sancheti, Sancheti Hospital said, “It feels extraordinarily overwhelming. Dada’s vibration can be experienced everywhere.”
Another devotee, Geeta Singh, shared with teary eyes,
“Dada’s light is something that is not restricted to the physical body alone, one can feel him here; his presence is more than ever. As for his Sacred Samadhi, it is like a magnet I am drawn to. Indeed, one cannot limit him but the Samadhi is signage that tells me to pause, gaze and wonder at his limitlessness.”
Following the Bhoomi Puja, langar prasad was served to all present.
Later, in the evening, Satsang with soulful kirtan & bhajans was held.
The Mission, abiding by the tenets of the Masters, believes that no occasion is complete without a service activity. On this day, the Mission distributed ration kits to 130 needy families, joy packets to 372 children, and stationery to 372 children.
The day was marked by love, devotion, and fond memories of the Master.
