This morning Guruji was very moved

An old sacred book in the jungles of Peru is right when it says: “There are no coincidences, only guidance”. Carl Jung called it synchronicity.

For the sake of deep healing, this morning Guruji swam in the middle of the sea. As the trials and temptations of the past month were so great, that even Guruji’s wife almost lost her life, Guruji did Gurudev meditation in the sea.

Alternately and repeatedly reflect on the deep and long suffering of Nelson Mandela, Mahatma Gandhi and H.H. Dalai Lama.

As soon as the mind is visited by negative things, the eyes are immediately closed. Lips whisper inward: “Gurudev meditation”. Then visualized clearly.

Nelson was imprisoned for 27 years, Mahatma Gandhi spent more than half of his life to liberate India, HH the Dalai Lama lost his country at the age of 15.

All three were born in different places, but all three were purified and refined their souls by the same power: “a deep and very long suffering!”.

After doing Gurudev Meditation repeatedly in the sea, suddenly a dry leaf touched the body: “The shape is love, the color is half yellow, half maroon”.

In the language of Buddhism, it is HH Dalai Lama’s dress. In the language of the Balinese elders, it is Shiva Raditya (the sun when it rises is red, after rising slightly it is yellow. After it becomes white it could not be seen).

Suddenly in the middle of the sea a feeling of great emotion appeared! Then a beautiful voice was heard: “The deepest initiation ever is a very long and deep pain. Not just any pain, but pain that is cultivated by deep spirituality”.

Last year, at the same time, before Guruji’s wife’s birthday, Guruji was exposed to the coronavirus. Hospitalized for 3 weeks complete with unimaginable shocks, recovering in Ashram 3 months.

When Guruji was in the hospital, every day a neighbor next door died. One of them is even Guruji’s own older brother.

In Rumi beautiful language: “What hurts you blesses you”. As long as you are intelligent enough to cultivate it spiritually, pain brings blessing to life. “Pain, the gift that nobody wants”, is the title of a book.

May all beings be happy. May all beings be happy. May all beings be happy. May all beings be happy.

About the author

H.H. Guruji Gede Prama

Gede Prama started his spiritual journey through a dialogue with his symbolic Guru in a village at the north of Bali. The journey is then being enriched with his experiences of studying abroad, his meetings with the world greatest spiritual Gurus: His Holiness Dalai Lama, The Venerable Thich Nhat Hanh, as well as Professor Karen Armstrong; and also being deepened by his intense meditation practices.

Despite the fact that he was once a CEO of a large corporation with thousand of employees, and was traveling abroad frequently for the purpose of teaching, yet, being deeply moved by the Bali bombing incident in 2002, he then decided to leave everything and went back to his home island.
He has never leave Bali for the past few years. In fact, he rarely leaves the silence of the forest where he lives, except for the purpose of teaching at the sacred sites within Bali.
