My spiritual life started with Ganesha. Ganesha eating the food I offered is the first spiritual experience that happened in My life. My first satsaìg was on Ganesha, and My first puja was done to Ganesha. I can say, My spiritual journey was successful and unfolded with all its glory, beauty and depth because of that! It was such an auspicious beginning…that is why My life is continuously extraordinary with auspicious incidents. I am trying to trace the day Ganesha ate the food I offered. We will declare that day as Annapurna Day in our mission!
Understand: this whole revival of deity worship, of Sanatana Hindu Dharma, which I am doing now, started with just one small Ganesha gifted to Me when I was three years old! If that same Ganesha or even a bigger Ganesha was gifted to Me when I was eighteen, I don’t think this revival would have happened. Just that one Ganesha at the age of three got into My very bio-memory, became an experience. That is why I am able to transmit that experience to tons and tons of people, and this whole Sanätana Hindu Dharma is revived!
Just yesterday, one participant in the Inner Awakening program came and said, “Swamiji, it is so sweet to talk to deities and relate with them! I saw them blessing me, relating back to me, responding to me!”
I said, “Wow! I have done My job!”
