Pousha Krushna Chaturdashi, Kaliyug Varsha 5115
Prayagraj : Shankaracharya Swami Nishchalanand Saraswati of Purvanmay Govardhan Peetha visited ‘Magh-Mela’ on 27th January at 11.00 a.m. He also visited exhibition put up by Sanatan Sanstha and Hindu Janajagruti Samiti on the subject of nation and Dharma; along with his personal Secretary, Swami Nirvikalpanandji. Shankaracharya read boards kept on display in the exhibition. Swami Nirvikalpanandji paid personal attention to every seeker enquiring after them. Shankaracharya Swami Nishchalanand Saraswati ji also asked all seekers if they faced any problems.
- Seekers setting up the exhibition and HJS activists were provided ‘Mahaprasad’ in the marquee of Shankaracharya. In the afternoon when seekers went there, Shankaracharya personally asked if everything was ok and whether they had any difficulties.
- Swami Nirvikalpanandji waited there till seekers had ‘Mahaprasad’ and he talked to them with lot of affection.
Radiance in Sanatan seekers is not observed in any other organization or institution ! – Swami Nirvikalpanand ji
Swami Nirvikalpanandji said on this occasion, “I have met members of many pro-Hindu organizations as also spiritual institutions; but the radiance found in Sanatan seekers is not found anywhere else; therefore, I feel affinity towards Sanatan. Sanatan seekers do ‘seva’ selflessly. In fact, I wanted seekers to stay here only (in the camp of Shankaracharya); but then I thought whether such simple ‘prasad’ provided here would be adequate for seekers. Seekers problem in coming and going to seva-kendra was also noted and I thought of providing at least ‘prasad’. One lady-seeker said that the ‘mahaprasad’ was good; but he said, “When thoughts are expansive , everything seems good and one always feels happy in any situation. It rained here so heavily, there was mud everywhere and cold; but all are in happy state of mind.”
