Letter from Mahavatar Babaji and Swamini Lakshmi - "Auto-Response"
“The Masters of ancient times Seemed to come to the ‘chosen few,’
To take their teachings to mankind Out into the world, mind and hearts of man, Or so the stories go, isn’t it?” With snow on the ground, Like the Himalayas of Mother India . . . His walking grounds, with danda in hand . . . So said Param Guru Mahavatar Babaji to me On this early winter morn!
Our Guru of the Guru’s, yours and mine, Smilingly said this to me this very morning In present time, your time and mine, I, then, remembered a story that I read yesterday About this subject: “Listening to the Inner Within,”
Written in “Sri Swami Vishwananda blog from South Africa.”
This story is Entitled,” Lakshmi Comes." My eye and heart were caught by the title, Even as a moth is inevitably drawn to the flame. You see, my friends, Divine Mother Lakshmi Is my Ishtadev, and the name that Gurudev gave at His Swami initiation August 2011-- Swamini Vishwalakshmianandama, Lakshmi! I still am in wonder: That’s truly me At the heart level where there is no “I, me or mine,”
And where there is only One!
The name, Swamini Vishwalakshmianandama Makes me feel I represent the Divine Mother Lakshmi, like my Satguru recently informed me,
Ensconced within my Dearly Belov-ed Satguru’s name. Safely there, I feel completely loved, and that I Also, along with all mankind, at heart am “Just Love,” as Swami Vishwananda lovingly teaches us all. This, I feel, every time I hear, or think of my Spiritual name.
I laughed out loud when the Guru of Gurus,
Mahavatar Babaji this morning, smilingly said:
“Write one of your poems about the Guru,” Like Swami Vishwananda told you to do That long ago day when he smilingly said:
‘Write your poems about the Guru And we will make a book.’" And Mahavatar Babaji further said:
“Entitle this poem 'Auto-Response.'” I laughed, remembering that is the immediate “Auto-Response” you get when you E-mail firstname.lastname@example.org – Do you all know about that? If so, you know the Auto-Response says:
“Thank you for your email. I do read all of the letters That I receive and consider all your prayer requests, But as I get a lot of mail, I am not able to respond to all of them. Thank you for your understanding!
Love and Blessings, Swami Vishwananda.” Truly, it took me knowing Swami for some time to know That He answers all the Email he receives, be it In Email form or when one listens closely in the “Inner Within!” He doesn’t place this in writing, but I feel, He wants us to Realize He answers all our mail Within our own “Inner Within!”
I was new to knowing Swami back then and I had never in this life received an Email “Auto-Response.” So I wrote him :
“Swami, I have not sent you any prayer requests, now Are you going to call me?” What naivete, I blush to remember That I wrote such a thing to Him! No wonder Swami was amused. I had heard a lucky bless-ed few receive calls from him. Swami laughingly called me and said: "After reading your Email, I thought I better call you." Just so you know, I have not received many actual Telephone calls from Swami since then!
So, the history has been told
And you know that when you E-mail The Master Sat Guru Prema Avatar Sri Swami Vishwananda. He responds with an actual E-mail or Within the Self, If you learn to listen. And that is what he wants You to do—to listen to the Inner Within!
Precisely like that, when you “Comment” on this Virtual-Babaji-Vishwananda blog, You get an Auto-Response from Our Param Guru Mahavatar Babaji Whether or not Mahavatar Babaji Guides me to publish The Comment, responds to it in writing, Or responds within the heart if you Learn to listen truly in the “Inner Within!” And likened unto our Dearly Belov-ed Sri Swami Vishwananda, Mahavatar Babaji Lovingly wants you to create, your Self, This very same connection to the Divine Inner Within!
