As a result of the ongoing relationship between Heartfulness Institute and Tukdoji Maharaj’s organisation, Shri Kamlesh Patel (Daaji) was invited to join Rashtra Sant VandaniyaTukdoji Maharaj’s Shraddhanjali annual event at Gurukunj near Amaravati, Maharashtra state, where more than 150,000 followers attended the event.
Daaji conducted meditation for the assembled gathering.
Over 1,000 people attended meditation sessions at the Heartfulness stall, and
everyone found themselves immersed in Dhyana in the first session itself. Shri
Tukdoji Maharaj’s followers were left in awe at the selfless service rendered
by volunteers gathered from various places for this event.
Speaking on the occasion Daaji said, “Meditation is a technique to stabilise a fickle mind. The mind
first becomes serene, and then it needs to be given a direction. What
do we do after the mind has become settled? A student will focus on
studies, a businessman will focus on making money, but the worthiest
utilisation is the Realisation of God, to attain Brahma Vidya. Even Lord Krishna says that meditation is an excellent
thing to do. It’s only through meditation that we can excel in every
He further added, “Loneliness is the cause of so many problems. People may be
married but they still feel lonely. The loneliness epidemic is
society’s biggest problem today. When we are going towards God, we don’t
face this problem because we see God in everyone. We feel it so there is no
need to speak about it. Everyone knows that God is omnipresent, but when this
thought becomes reality then something can really happen.This is a very joyful
day, as the two currents that are progressively moving, Heartfulness and
Tukdoji, have merged as one. Heartfulness is available for all. Whoever wants
and seeks for it from the heart will keep on receiving it.”
“Everyone wants happiness.
Who wants sorrow? No one. When can we be happy? When the mind becomes
contemplative. When can we contemplate? When the mind rests on one thing after
making a resolution. It becomes focused. And when can the mind become focused?
When it is regulated. And when will it be regulated? When we meditate. Now
connect the statements above. Is happiness possible without meditation? In
Heartfulness, due to Transmission or pranahuti, meditation becomes very simple”.
Daaji participate in the Tukdoji Maharaja Punyathitiwith
thousands of followers. The program started with bhajans and slokas from the
Bhagavad Gita, with all the followers gathered in the meditation hall.Deeply
touched by Daaji’s speech on meditation, the followers readily accepted him, and
they made him their own. It was a moment where tears were rolling from many
eyes. Most people were touched by the simplicity of Daaji and the way he
comprehensively presented his thoughts so simply. Many
who came to know about Daaji, Heartfulness and Kanha want to visit Kanha in the
