Day 26 Of Aradhana Month

Another wonderful seva is to be a good listener. Sometimes people simply need to talk things out, vent out what’s bothering them.
They are not seeking solutions, or dos and don’ts, or any perhaps, ifs and maybes…they just want to release the excess baggage in their heart and mind. Any opinions will only add to the toxicity of the situation.
Listening in silence and emitting silent vibes of peace and love…make our understanding and empathy grow.
Let’s ‘listen’ to a true tale –
On Saturday, 20th August 2011…in the lecture hall at Prashanti Nilayam, even as the talk by Sri NS Venkateshwaran commenced, an unusual visitor came and parked ‘itself’ in the centre aisle.
It was a dog!
He sat there in the same position through the entire lecture…for 1 hr and 10 mins…! After the lecture no one could find him. The seva dal members at the entrance had not seen this ‘four legged, tail wagging happy heart’ walk in or out of the lecture hall. Next morning, Shri Nanjundaiah, ex Controller of Examinations – Sri Sathya Sai University, came early to the Mandir met Shri Venkateshwaran and asked, “Venkatesh…did you deliver any lecture yesterday…?”
Upon an affirmative reply, Shri Nandunjaiah astonishingly revealed, “Swami came in my dream this morning and said that HE came to listen to your lecture and HE heard every word of what you said. Swami asked me to go and meet you and to tell you that HE loved your talk.”
God or Dog? As Bhakt Prahlad said – Wherever we search we find Him there!
Myriad are the forms He assumes to come before us. Maya…the veil of rigid ignorance stops us from recognising the Supreme One…and alas, time moves on.
Assuming any form as per His Sweet Will, if He…the Omniscient One, can ‘sit and patiently listen’…can’t we all…?
Accordingly, let us also take a step further and in silent contemplation, listen to Him whispering volumes within…for silence is the language of the spiritual seeker.
We heard the Lord speak…did we listen? He is still speaking from within…however, are we ready to ‘spare’ some time to listen in to Beloved Him?
