Wimbledon 2012

Yesterday I had an opportunity to watch Wimbledon Final for a while. It was a superb game between two very much talented players. Federer's fans were delighted to see how he won his 17th Grand Slam title, the most by any player. He  also regained his ‘World Number 1’ spot and equaled world record of Pete Sampras for holding this spot for 286 weeks. But I was told that the match between Federer and Djokovic was much more exciting and better played than the final. 

Federer's consistent performance shows his "commitment to his cause". It is also to be noted that Roger Federer, Novak Djokovic and Rafael Nadal have won 29 of the last 30 Grand Slam titles between them. 

Gurupournima 2012

We celebrated the Gurupournima yesterday. The darshan of Sadguru Bapu (Aniruddhasinh)  is indeed so gratifying! Blessed with the darshan, the face of every single bhakta was oozing joy. The arrangements on the stage – the depictions of instances highlighting just what it means to repose firm faith at the feet of the Sadguru, what it is to have unconditional trust in Him did I am sure reach out to every single heart with love for the Sadguru.

"Firm faith in the Sadguru –that is all that suffices, just that one whole-hearted trust in Him, that He alone is the Doer, the Protector and the One who rids of the undesirable" - This verse from the 19th chapter of the Shree Saisachcharit, so convincingly and beautifully illustrated I know, drew special attention. Bapu (Aniruddhasinh) has already told us that the year we are in now, is the year to anchor firm, this very verse in our mind, our thought and deed.

Let us all repose this one faith, this singular trust at the Sadguru's Feet – and then He will no matter what and in any case alter and amend the writings of fate – He will seal it. Let us do our job. As for Him, He always does His.
