Driving down to Van Serai, the beautiful Linga Bhairavi panel
travelled with us. Upon arrival in the evening, we unpacked and placed Devi in the
designated Yoga room. We were unsure of the placement so we said ?Devi will indicate
the ideal spot for herself?. We filled a large brass lamp with ghee and put in a
long wick. After lighting the lamp, we sang the Devi stuthi. The lamp light filled
up the room and so it remained the entire night. The next day, we figured out the
wall facing the door to be the ideal spot for the Devi panel.
So, as soon as one opens the door and enters the Yoga room, Devi is there. Her presence
fills up the room and permeates the surroundings.
In the evening, Blaine, Mohit?s friend, arrived for a chat
and dinner. An American, a widely travelled person, a meditator and a conservationist,
Blaine has now made Jageshwar his home for the past few years. We took him to meet
Devi. Entering the room, he acknowledged Devi with a namaskaram and said ?Wow? ?
Devi had made her presence felt through his spine, the seat of all experience!
I am sure all Van Serai visitors will experience Devi and receive
her grace in her ?wild and wonderful ways?.
