"The whole life has been divided into four parts based on the time that you spend on this earth: ‘brahmacharya’ is the first part of your life, wherein you learn the knowledge that is required to lead one’s life – both the material knowledge as well as the spiritual knowledge; then the next phase is that of ‘grihastha’, when one sets up his family life, begets children, raises them up, does all the work that is needed to fulfill the responsibility of the family; then comes ‘vanaprastha’ – that is, you must move away from your family and then engage yourself in the works of the society; and finally comes the stage of ‘sanyasa’, when you give up even the societal obligations, and only think of God and nothing else."                                                                                                                                                                                 - Baba

DIVINE VISIT TO CANADA, USA

DAY ONE – JUNE 10, 2016

 

Jet lag had slowly, but surely crept in for the entourage, though nothing deterred the spirit to be with God! For what more could one ask for? For what more would a soul yearn for? Constant proximity with the Ultimate One!

After a wonderful breakfast, Swami called the hosts Mrs Manju and Mr Krishan Singhal, Mrs Jennie and Mr David Cornsweet, and His entourage to His room. There was a sweet surprise which awaited all! Day one and Swami wanted everyone to go shopping, in His words, ‘Marketing’! He very lovingly gave everyone envelopes of Love, and assured all that He would join them for lunch at Mr Singhal’s 18-hole golf course!

DIVINE VISIT TO CANADA, USA

DAY TWO – JUNE 11, 2016

Morning Session :

Everyone woke up to a gorgeous morning, with the feeling of gratitude and love for the Lord. The compassionate Lord that He is, imparts the highest of truths in the most simplest way, which everyone can understand, young or old.

After breakfast, everyone proceeded to the residences of Mrs and Mr Singhal’s daughters, Angela and Monica. There was a glow on the faces of Mrs and Mr Singhal, as their six grand children embraced them. After spending some time first at the residence of Angela and her husband Kevin, the entourage proceeded to the residence of Monica and Jeff. The next hour which unfolded was truly magical! Four generations sitting at the Lotus Feet of God, beginning with Mrs Manju Singhal’s dear mother, an octogenarian. An endearing sight indeed!

DAY THREE & FOUR – JUNE 12-13, 2016

 

Day Three – Ottawa to Boston, USA :

After an early lunch, Bhagawan’s entourage proceeded to the airport for the next leg of the Divine Visit to Boston. Sri Bharat Patel and his family welcomed everyone warmly at the Logan International Airport, and after loading all the bags into a convoy of white cars, the entourage was led to Bedford. Boston, known for its rich culture, is one of the oldest cities in USA. Mention the word Boston, and History lessons from
school about the Boston Tea Party come gushing back into memory. And of course, Boston is also synonym with Harvard and MIT – Massachusetts Institute of Technology!

The entourage arrived at a very beautiful property, spread across two acres, which was the residence of a friend of Sri Bharat Patel and his wife Smt Sheila, and incidentally his name was also Sri Bharat Patel! It was a perfect example of what Swami often says, “union of man, nature and God!”
