'Don't be sad, I am everywhere.'
This is one of the stories in our Story-Gems project, a collection of our experiences with our Guru, Sri Chinmoy. Project homepage »
After Guru passed away, his vibration was still so strong. But I was very sad, of course. We were meditating in New York on October 11th. It was the anniversary of the first year, or maybe it was even the same year. My father had passed away and then Guru passed away and then my cat passed away.
My cat's name was Gokul. I was sitting, meditating, but feeling very sad and thinking: “Oh, Guru died, my father died, my cat died. Guru, everything is so sad.”
Then I heard Guru's voice inwardly and he said, "Listen!" I had been playing music, but not really listening. Just when I heard Guru say, "Listen!" I realised that the Bhajan song playing was “Bhaja Govinda charana ra binda shyama sundara Gokul ananda.” The name of my cat was Gokul.
The exact minute that I was thinking: “sad, sad,” it was like Guru heard me. Then I heard his voice saying: "Listen!" He was telling me: “I am everywhere, I am everywhere. Don't be sad. I am everywhere.”
