Baba's Humour at DMC

Date: 06 Sep 2010 21:43:17 -0000 From: "Surya Rao" To: Subject: Baba's Humour at DMC Baba
Namaskar, In His divine manner, Baba made everyone laugh at this DMC with His humourous comment.
It was May 1983 in Ananda Nagar and and general darshan was going on. The Prabhat Samgiita was sung. It was PS #58, Dujane jakhan miliche takhan, which is a song about marriage. As per the custom, after the song was sung, then in Baba's presence, selected Dadas read their purports. The basic idea of the song is: O human beings, when two people are being united in marriage, then you all shower them with your good wishes. Amidst their burning sorrows, amidst their garlands of joy, in their pains and pleasures, be with them always. Our human society is indivisible, neglecting not a single family. Let us all sing and dance together. Accept everyone as your own. With the sweet music of the earth, give this newly married couple your affectionate words and wishes. Give them sweet messages of love. Fill their lives with colour and shower them with your well wishing...
As everyone may recall, it was quite normal for Baba to add and correct the purports read by various Dadas. This day was no different. When the Dada finished reading His Hindi purport, Baba started reciting this Sanskrit shloka about marriage.
Kanya' varayate ru'pam, ma'ta' vittam, pita' shruti, Ba'ndhavaha hitam icchanti, mis't'a'nnam itare jana'h
While smiling, Baba then gave the following explanation: At the time of marriage, the bride longs for a handsome groom; the mother longs for a wealthy son-in-law; the father longs a well education man for his daughter; the friends desire that in spite of all of life's difficulties the newlyweds should be happy; and others in attendance hope that whatever may be, there should be the distribution of sweets. With His wide smile, and looking across the pandal from left to right, then He said: "We fall in this last group!" Hearing this, everyone started laughing.
Being a Parama Purusa, Taraka Brahma and Sadguru, Baba used to be very humorous and loving. Irrespective of anyone's economic or social standing, all margiis felt close to Him. By this way they came close devotionally as well. Between God and His devotees there should not be any distance or complex. Every margii felt Baba to be their own, by His grace. During His each and every discourse, Baba used to create certain situations wherein everyone would laugh. Baba says, "Laughter gives happiness." (YP) Namaskar, Surya
