Letter from Mahavatar Babaji and Swamini Lakshmi - "Auto-Response"

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
swami@bhaktimarga.com
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!

Swamini Vishwalakshmianandama (Lakshmi)

Beloved Babaji and Lakshmi,
Is not our Swamiji an Avatara full of surprises? He carries Laxmi Ma in His Heart and the Golden Lingam - even two lingams in His Divine Body! He has the Whole Univers in HIM!
Love and Devotion.
