" Mission Dhyan Kashmir "
I am Rachna Gupta from Ludhiana, Punjab Pyramid Spiritual Society. I would like to share my experiences in Jammu & Kashmir with all of you.
One day, D. Padmaja Srinivas from Hyderabad, a great pyramid master, rang me up and asked me to join her in spreading meditation in J & K. Firstly, I was reluctant to go to Kashmir. I sat in meditation ... and my inner voice asked me to go to Kashmir as it is my duty to make North India aware of meditation.
I talked to my husband Mr. Raj Kumar Gupta, my sister-in law Mrs. Kiran Agarwal, her husband Mr. Laxmi Agarwal. They all accetped my invitation to work in J & K.
Before going to J & K, we talked to Patriji over phone to take his blessings. Patriji was very happy and wished us all the luck. We were four masters from North India and three masters from South. We started our journey from Ludhiana on 21st June.
22nd June, Srinagar
Our first meditation class was in police control room, Srinagar. Mr. Iqbal Mallik, S.S.P. Kashmir, arranged this class. The class was to
start at 3.00 pm, we had a personal meeting with Mr. Iqbal Mallik and told him all about Patriji’s pyramid movement. He heard us with great interest and promised to help us in every way.
The class started, the jawans of police force were made to sit on chairs in the open. There were around 80-85 jawans. Mr Rajkumar took the class, the he first told about meditation and its benefits, why it is so necessary for them, to bring them out of depression, tension ... so that they can lead a relaxed life. Then, it was thirty minutes practical meditation class. They all did meditation. I told them about the seven main meditational experiences. Every person had one or the other experience. Mr. Mallik thanked us and said that he will make it a point to see that every person in police control room does meditation regularly.
23rd June, Srinagar
We all seven and G.M.’s wife and daughter also joined us. We reached “ Kheer Bhawani ” temple at around 12 noon. We all wore pyramid caps and started our mission. We all were looking very different with caps on, everyone was seeing at us. We searched a nice shady place, spread a bedsheet and displayed all our pamphlets, CD’s, pyramid caps on it. Four masters sat down and rest started distributing leaflets on meditation, vegetarianism in Hindi, Punjabi and English. Many people started enquiring about meditation and its benefits.
We gave them practical meditation classes under a tree with pyramid caps on, in several groups. Every person had some experience. All the people irrespective of their caste and religion were very friendly. Not even once it occured to us that this State of J & K has undergone such a lot of terrorist activities.
It became very hot in Srinagar. We explained to people, why global warming is happening because it is due to our negative thoughts. If we will think positive and spread love and humanity everywhere, there is no reason for global warming to continue.
In the mela, many hospitals, colleges, schools had their stalls and were distributing free medicines, free medical check-ups / camps were organized there. We personally went to every camp, distributed our pamphlets. We also gave them C.D.s, on “ flute meditation ” and discourses of Patriji. We gave them guidance about meditation and its urgent need.
