Homily on the Run

Picture 1

      He who believes in god, is always blessed and is never left alone,helpless’,says Ram Sharan as he oars his boat along the gusts of ‘Narmada Maiyaa’. It was about a decade ago when my feet landed into this mystical place; I was in search of earning a livelihood for myself and my family. The almighty never left me alone. He offered me with a satisfactory occupation of serving the pilgrims who have come in search of him. I am as happy as the mother of a newborn healthy child or a blind child, recently operated ,catching the first glimpse of the gifts of nature.’
     I truly find what I had come here for,’ a source of livelihood along with universal satisfaction’. Ram Sharan’s eyes are enough moist by now that he cannot hide them. They manifest joy and peace. With this begins Ram Sharan’s short homily on his boat, with his hands forcing against the gusts of water and words against the momentary pleasures of philistinism. What religion you follow or which deity you worship, is immaterial. The important thing is the will to reach the almighty, the will to offer a helping hand to the needy, the will to indulge into good practices.
     The person who understands these aspects is a true disciple of the almighty.He is the true servant of the lord.That is why, I often ask people not to come here, the holy pilgrimage for the wipe out of their own miseries but the miseries of the world. Because,it is rightly said that sacrifice itself forms the basis of humanity.’Jay Ho Ram Ji ki’,he cheers as the boat births along the east coast. What astounds is the level of philosophy Ram Sharan speaks and what is revealed is the importance of peace and satisfaction. The silent image oars back across the saffron-red horizon of the setting sun, carving a deep mark of inspiration and determination in the heart.
