The trip happened a little bit unexpectedly, cause all of a sudden I just felt that I need to get out of Varkala and just breath different kind of atmosphere. And that is partly the reason that I didn’t actually know, what was waiting for me once I would be there at my destination because I didn't do any research about the place beforehand. I knew that that Sunday would be the last one for almost a month that Amma was going to be at her ashram. This might also be one reason why I found myself on this special journey on this particular Sunday.
When we returned to the Ashram, our paths dived. I sat down to the shadows of a beautiful and very empowering Neem tree. People were coming and going, and I was just sitting there, listening to the silent sounds of the nearby temple. In spite of all the fuss around me, the atmosphere still remained very harmonic. For some reason, the movie Eat. Pray. Love. came on to my mind while sitting there.
It was little after five in the afternoon when I heard the bell ringing. It was a sign that Amma is coming to the big hall. People were gathering around to these two lines forming an alley for Amma to enter to the room, and to her place. The ambiance was waiting. When Amma finally walked into the hall, I couldn’t help myself, it was a really emotional moment for me. I can’t even put it into words really. The meditation session began when Amma got into the front of the room. It lasted for about 45 minutes. Right after that, the Darshan started. Luckily I was very near Amma so I didn’t have to wait that long for my turn. People, who were assisting Amma, asked what is the language that I'm speaking and where I come from. When I was there in Amma’s arms, she whispered something into my ear which I didn’t understand. In spite of that, the moment was really significant, full of love and above all really special to me.
Love is our true essence.
Love has no limitations of caste, religion, race, or nationality.
We are all beads strung together on the same thread of love.
To awaken this unity and spread the love that is our inherent nature,
is the true goal of human life.
