Fond memories of bliss – Part 37

A few years ago, a couple came to have Sri Sri Swamiji’s blessings soon after their wedding. The groom was a regular satsang member prior to his marriage. He used to attend Sri Sri Swamiji’s bhajans everyday and spent most of his time in Sri Sri Swamiji’s satsang when he was a bachelor.

When the couple came for Sri Swamiji’s blessings, His Holiness looked at the groom in a surprised manner. He almost exclaimed, ‘you should not have..’, but stopped short of completing the sentence. He blessed the couple. While giving Kumkum Prasad to the young lady, it slipped and fell.

No one really read into these happenings. After the darshan, the couple went away and I had forgotten about the whole incident.

Very recently, the same young lady came to have Sri Sri Swamiji’s darshan. With tears in her eyes, she narrated her story to Sri Sri Swamiji. Her husband had passed away soon after their marriage leaving behind their little child.

What instantly flashed in my mind was that very incident that took place when she came soon after her wedding for Sri Sri Swamiji’s darshan a few years ago.
