Waits For Darshan
19 May 2008, Tuesday, Sarangpur
Every night when Swamishri retires to bed sadhus come for his darshan. Tonight, Swamishri was a little early. The sadhus were singing the ritual chesta in the assembly hall, a little distance away. On seeing only a few sadhus outside Swamishri enquired whether everyone was late. The attendant sadhus replied that everyone was singing the chesta and that they would come shortly. So Swamishri sat patiently waiting on his bed. Shortly, when all the sadhus arrived Swamishri folded his palms and bid ‘Jai Swaminarayan’ to all. Swamishri waited to fulfil everyone’s wish for darshan and furthermore, he, too, wished to havedarshan of the sadhus. Such is the glory he has for all.
