Sri Sri's Viraat Roop

More than 5000 years ago Lord Krishna, while giving the Bhagavad Geeta to Arjuna in the battlefield of Kurukshetra, showed his divine form - the Viraat Roop, to him.

Today while watching the World Culture Festival event in the Olympia Stadium in Berlin, I felt so strongly that Guruji has shown his Viraat Roop, yet again.

So many cultures were presented on one platform, so many communities, all came as one. One global family, Vasudhaiva Kutumbakam.

When Guruji said not only individuals have to come together, even all the cultures of the world have to meet, I could feel his sincerity and earnestness.

The meditation he conducted invoked so much peace, joy and unity, it was as if the whole world was celebrating inside me through his grace. When the various performances from all over the world, as far east as Japan and as far west as Argentina, happened, the homogeneousness of the entire human species as belonging to one source, one divinity could be felt so prominently.

In today's world, if one expects Guruji to create some thunder and lightning and expand himself and manifest with a thousand heads and a million arms, then it will be very foolish. I think HE has demonstrated and shown HIS VIRAAT ROOP through this event, which no mortal could have done.

What is the world waiting for? When Jesus Christ brought the dead to life, still people doubted him, when Krishna vanquished all his enemies with his miracles, still people did not recognize the divine in him, after bringing such diverse and warring nations and cultures together at one place and sing and dance, are we going to ask and wait for more proof or are we going to bask in HIS grace and shine in HIS glory?

Well, the choice is ours and the blessings are HIS.


Jai Gurudev
