In October 2009, a friend of mine visited me from Australia. During her visit she wanted me to accompany her for shopping, going around, travelling to a spiritual destination, etc. This was the time when I had stepped in the world of Spiritual.
When we met I was narrating to her all my profound and most wonderful experiences which I had been having since then. I shared with her about my beautiful travelogue with my Master in Kolkata and all that had been till then.
While she is a believer in God she did not buy too much into what I shared with her. All that happened was that she understood how mad and crazy I was about Krsna. She was only hearing this name throughout the time we spent together and she saw me witnessing everything about Krsna where ever I went with her, in some form or the other.
It so happened that on one evening I had to drive her back all the way to her in-laws place. It was raining heavily and we were faced by a massive traffic jam. Since we were getting late she started to receive calls after calls from her family.
Every time she opened her purse to take out her phone something would fall out and she would pick it up and put it back in her purse. She kept doing this every single time she had opened her purse. And I had not once noticed what was falling out of her pursue as I was quite busy focusing on the road and traffic. She didn’t say anything about it during the drive either. After about two hours we reached her home. Before she stepped out of the car, again something fell out of her purse. This time she got quite annoyed and handed over a beautiful photo of baby Krsna to me and said, “Look your Krsna wants to come to you and this picture has been falling out of my purse every single time I’ve opened the purse, no matter where I put it.”
She was totally amazed with the Love which I have for my Krsna and likewise how Krsna wanted to come to me. I did not have any words to describe what I experienced nor what to say to my friend. This is the first photo of Krsna which came to me and has stayed on in my wallet since. I was in tears and speechless.
She received her own experience as well and of course, got an understanding of how mad I was about my Lord. It only reiterates what I had begun to learn – As is your faith, so are your experiences. My Lord who is the magnet that attracts me and has blessed me to grow on the path of Love and Devotion to Krsna alone. As bees are attracted to flowers, metal pieces to the magnet, and the sunflower to the Sun, likewise Krsna is the Magnetic power who attracts his devotees towards him.
With the grace of my Master I have been able to pen this most wonderful experience in a string of words. Thank you for reading and do watch out for my next write-up about my first visit to Singapore with my Master and test of my faith in him.
