What Inspired new YMHT+… ?


I decided to go to Guru Purnima this year for two reasons: one was to discover what Arizona had to offer, in terms of its landscape, nature and culture, while the other was to understand what exactly my uncle is actually learning from the weekly Dada Bhagavan’s satsangs he attends. It turned out to be that I learned a lot more than I had ever expected, the best part being that I never felt bored or unentertained, because there was always something to do and learn. What I really appreciated was the sense of community, friendliness, and empathy all around me. Almost instantly and automatically, just being in that atmosphere took away a lot of the stress and anxiety associated with the doubtful and self-centered nature of the world we live in. Many of the common questions I had were answered simply by taking a part in Satsangs and interacting with others around me, which then allowed me to self-reflect on my own behavior, thoughts and past-mistakes. The satsangs truly made me that much more aware. One particularly memorable part of GP was a special satsang with Dimplebhai. With so much ease, the young adults present in the room were able to ask personal questions and receive invaluable feedback and inspiration from Dimplebhai-this was really remarkable to see. I am looking forward to next year’s Guru Purnima for further realization. After all, this is a journey, not a destination.
