भक्तन के हो सदा सहारे


मैं पवन सिंह, बाबा की उपस्थिति का प्रत्यक्ष अनुभव करके लौटा हूँ l  मैं बाबा पर लखनऊ से कैंची धाम तक स्वेच्छा से एक ट्रेवल शो बना रहा हूँ  l

रास्ते भर जो भी मेरी टीम ने अनुभव किया वो अकल्पनीय था मेरे लिए   l   ये अनुभव  5  और 6  अप्रैल  2018  के हैं  l याद करता हूँ तो आँखे नम हो जाती हैं  l


 जब लखनऊ से हल्द्वानी पहुँचे तब तक शाम के 7:30 बज चुके थे। भवाली पहुँचते-पहुंचते रात के 12 बज चुके थे।

रास्ते पर चाय-पानी और होटल की दुकानें बंद हो चुकी थीं। मैंने और कैमरामैन ने तय किया कि रात में भी पहाड़ के कुछ नजारे, रात में सोया हुआ शहर और ऊंचाई से रात में बिजली की रौशनी से टिमटिमाते पहाड़ी कस्बों व शहरों को शूट करेंगे।

Unconditional Release from Bankruptcy

kainchi dhamWe had sold our business with all its assets and liabilities to a new buyer and exited from the management of the company. The new buyer was unable to run the business so the bank filed case for recovery of loans on the new buyer as well as us being the initial guarantors for the loans. The court case for recovery went on for several years. Our legal advisors informed us that historically similar case went in favour of the banks and ultimately we would have to declare ourselves bankrupt.
Living with the tag of bankruptcy was a huge stigma and burden as we would no longer be able to do business in our names. We knew we were innocent as technically we had sold the company and exited the management but the laws in this case were illogical and we would become its victims.
I had heard  Krishna Das recite the Hanuman Chalisa on youtube. That curiosity led me to research his past and trace the name of his guru and the Neem Karoli ashram in Kainchi Dham.

Escaped Arrest Due to Maharajii's Grace

Maharajji 870pMy friend Sobran Singh was a devotee of Maharajji. He always consulted Maharajji for any kind of problem.

Once Sobran Singh was being chased by the police due to some court cases pending against him. He approached Maharajji and sought his help.

Maharajji gave him a blazer which is worn by judges of High Court,  and asked him to wear it.

He wore the blazer. The constable who had been looking for him passed by, did not recognize him, took him for a judge and went back.

Maharajji Fulfils Devotee's Desire to Visit Kainchi

maharajji 1301pI had visited Kainchi Dham once but had not known much about Maharajji until I came back to my hometown Ramnagar in 2010 after quitting my job in US. By that time my father had also passed away. Due to this I became interested in spirituality and read lot of books on this subject in seclusion. In my father’s collection, I found one book on experiences with Maharaj Ji and recollected that my father, in childhood, had met Maharaj Ji. So I had connection with Maharaj Ji. I considered him my baba.

I sometimes shouted at Baba Ji and questioned him why He was not calling me to Kainchi Dham. Like this, three and half years passed. In April, 2016 I again mentioned my mother about my desire to go to Kainchi Dham but due to monetary and circumstantial reasons I couldn't plan. In May, one day I got a call from my earlier good friend Monaswi from USA that he was visiting India but he decided not to go to home first but rather intended to visit Kainchi Dham. He was a very good friend of mine but it had been around 7 years we had met and then we hardly talked once or twice a year.

The Healing Wind of Maharajji

Maharajji Neem Karoli BabaSeptember 2012 I spent a day in the bazaar in the Pahar Ganj district of Delhi waiting to catch the night train for Kathgodam train station in the Nainital region and my first visit to Maharajjis ashram in Kainchi.

During that day on passing a statue shop my eyes fell on a small statue of Ganesha - it's expression very sweet I felt like buying it, but cautioned myself not to, since I'd be going on a hiking trip in the Himalayas directly after visiting Kainchi and didn't want to carry any unnecessary stuff.
