“Mother” is a word that touches the core of our hearts like no other. The very word strikes a chord of love and deep emotions in each one of us. In March, we celebrate the much-loved occasion of Mother’s Day and also mark the occasion of our beloved Pujya Niruma’s Punyatithi too.
Param Pujya Dada Bhagwan had said to Pujya Niruma, “Niruben, you will have to become a mother to the whole world”. Niruma became this embodiment of love for millions as per Dada’s vision. Though it has been 15 years since Niruma left her mortal body, her subtle presence and her loving smile still touches us all.
Our 21st March 2021 National Sunday satsang celebrated Niruma’s Punyatithi with great devotion and bhakti. Nearly 200 Mahtama households joined the session on this occasion.
Mahatmas were shown a special DVD on “Abhedta” (“Oneness”): one of the key pillars of Akram Vignan. In this DVD, Niruma shared various keys on “Oneness” and how we are to have “Oneness” with our family, friends, Mahatmas and with the world as a whole. Oneness is the understanding that scientifically, I and the other person are the same, despite our inherent natures being different. It is the divisive intellect that shows us differences that “this is mine” and “this is yours” or “I am right” and “you are wrong”. No matter how the other behaves with us, we must keep this notion of oneness in us.
A devotional Live Bhakti session in reverence of Pujya Niruma followed. Beautiful songs penned by Pujya Niruma were sung by GNC children and 2 youths. GNC kids had been practising the songs for the last 4 weeks, with a lot of enthusiasm and support from their parents. They are like our Rising Dada Stars with hidden talents for singing! Thereafter, 11 Mahatmas from various Centres of UK sung heart-touching songs in remembrance of Niruma. The uniqueness about this special event was participation from all 15 Centres across UK in the form of anchors and singers for each of the 15 songs, showcasing the Oneness of UK Mahatmas.
The session ended with sweet memories of our beloved Niruma shared through personal experiences of some of the Mahatmas. Niruma touched and changed the lives of many. Though Niruma is not with us in physical form her subtle presence is forever with us. With the vision of “Oneness” that she has engraved in our hearts, she will always be “Our Mother”: “Our Niruma”.
