How Saloni Found An Answer
THE HARDSHIPS FACED ARE NOT WASHED OFF IN VAIN INSTEAD THEY PROVIDE THE RIGHT CONDITIONS FOR THE SEED TO GERMINATE; PROVIDED THE SEED HAS THE DESIRE TO SPROUT POSITIVELY AS A BUD AND FINALLY AS A FLOWER THAT ADDS TO NATURE’S BEAUTY.
“We never know the right temperature and the conditions for a seed to shoot. It is well-known by nature. This is what I learned from My Life’s Story.”
Since childhood, I had deep devotion within my heart, I prayed simply but heartily. The simple laughter of childhood soon was converted into tough puzzles of life, when parents imposed harsh decision onto me to marry a boy of a sound family without caring for my dreams of studying higher. All my colourful dreams shattered with that single decision.
I always wanted to be an independent girl, and when I shared my desire to work and earn just to be in touch with my studies, with my in-laws, they restricted me to step out of home because they felt that they were sound enough financially. I saw major differences in our thinking patterns. The way I saw life was completely opposite from their point of view.
I faced challenging situations, hardships, whether in fulfilling my dreams or relationships. I could easily see that whatever positive I was sowing in life was receiving back completely negative and received hurt from every aspect of life.
Blessed with two intelligent sons, a good financial status of the family, but life turned out to be a living hell.
Confusions, misunderstandings, clashes in thoughts and relationships, no one was understanding my feelings and pain. I had no one to express my feelings with. I could see people were using and deceiving me.
Replying to these circumstances, my inner voice screamed, Is it all GOD for what I was born? All for what I was longing for? Are you sure that these are the rewards for your child who has served others with a pure heart? I rebelled for the answer or decided to just end up my life. Went in deep depression AND AS AN ANSWER TO THAT RECEIVED, AUTOBIOGRAPHY OF A YOGI by, Mr Deepak Chib now my gurubhai, who played the role of an angel later in my life.
Through Youtube, I got to know of KRIYA YOGA and that was the beginning of my new journey. Luckily, the first time ONLINE HOME STUDY KRIYA YOGA COURSE was launched in 2017. And by grace I was made available with the course through the same angel (Mr Deepak Chib), crossing hundreds of challenges, tough in themselves, one of them was, stepping out of home and learning kriya yoga.
Suddenly a spark of LIGHT lit into my dark world. I registered for the course and started learning and following the instructions with devotion and dedication with that found my blocked paths opening as never before.” The world inside changed along with the world outside.”Role of Vibha Mam as my course mentor and a true divine friend cannot be forgotten. She kept me going on inspiring me on this path from time to time.
Now by regular kriya practice and PARAMHANSA YOGANANDA JI’S blessings, a pity, the depressed housewife has transformed into an independent lady, holding a loving position in the same family, managing and directing a recently owned senior secondary school, with full confidence, works as a counsellor and a motivational speaker with the students of her own school.
Paramhansa Yogananda Ji rightly said “SEEDS OF PAST KARMA CANNOT GERMINATE IF THEY ARE ROASTED IN THE FIRES OF DIVINE WISDOM” And then, consequently the individual experiences the ever-new joy and bliss, with the conversion of life into a melody,( expressing my personal experience after my kriya initiation).
I have no words that can express my thanks to GOD, GURUS and ANANDA SANGHA.
After Kriya Initiation, Saloni started helping Ananda Kriya Home Study and now Ananda Sangha India with different outreach requirements.
