I wish to express my deep gratitude for the role you played in my inner transformation. You absorbed all my anger, irritability, harsh speech, and repeated wrong behavior, and never ever reacted harshly.

You were always very understanding, accepting, and forgiving. Your thirty-five years of unconditional personal service to Late Vishwaguruji Maharaj, your freedom from all ambitions and desires, and your deep state of abiding inner peace was a glowing example for me to imitate. I can never in anyway return the love and service you gave me for the past twenty-five years. I will always remain deeply indebted to you in every way. 

To Bhartiji with Gratitude 

Dear Bhartiji on this b’day (13.4.03)

My heart is longing something to say;

In my life the role you played

Brought me much peace in words cannot be said.

 Many a conflicting desire and need

In my life I had to face;

As I struggled with my inner pain

Your presence was my only solace. 

Always comforting, always kind

Never reacting, never unkind;

For all future guidance upon you I look

With heart full of gratitude, to you I dedicate my book.
