Today is the festival of Guru Poornima, and Babuji Maharaj told me that, when the abhyasi is with the Guru on this particular day, and they have a sitting, they progress hundreds of times faster. (Applause)
This was not planned, that, you know, today we should be here, and I did not know today is Guru Poornima until yesterday evening. So I think it's a special gift to everybody here, that today is a special blessing from Babuji Maharaj. (Applause)
It is not luck; it is benediction. Luck is for worldly affairs. You know the Sanskrit word for luck? Adrishta-that which we cannot see. That is divine grace. So, today is like that, you see.
So I am happy that we are all so many people together here today. And you must have felt what happened during the sitting; it was very profound, and I have not recovered from it so far. I hope all of you will continue to be like drunk with today's sitting, till next Guru Poornima. Thank you.
