H. H. Acharya Mahaprajnaji, Yuvacharya Mahashramanji, Sadhvi Pramukha Kanak Prabhaji, head of nuns, Sadhvishrees, and Samanijis at early morning Darshan

We got up and then hasted for Darshan. Swami Dharmanandji had already gone, his biological clock rings - no matter where he is - about 05:00, the daily hour of meditation in the Kendra. On the way, we wondered how many dogs and cows stood patiently in front of empty balconies or closed doors. Clockwise, balconies were peopled and doors opened, breakfast time for the animals. We arrived at Oswal Bhawan just a few minutes in advance of Sadhvi Pramukha Kanak Prabhaji.

Acharya Mahaprajnaji talking with Sadhvi Pramukhaji, head of nuns, in presence of Yuvacharya Mahashramanji and Samanijis. One Samani is talking to Karuna

Sadhvi Pramukha Kanak Prabhaji and the nuns of her company like every morning about 07:00 presented their Vandana in front of Acharyashree and Yuvacharyashree. Monks and nuns ordinarily get up at 04:00 in the morning not to miss first serotonin output. When we are asleep at this time, we miss it, and it will be released without an effect. In the early morning hours, the saints are doing prayers, meditate etc. They do not eat, only take water before breakfast at 08:00.

After Vandana, Sadhvi Pramukhaji and the nuns sat down.

A group of Samanijis then arrived, and they made sign to Karuna to sit down with them in the first row in front of the saints.
H.H. Acharya Mahaprajnaji in discussion with Yuvacharya Mahashramanji and Sadhvi Pramukha Kanak Prabhaji, head of nuns

Acharyashree had a discussion with Yuvacharyashree and Sadhvi Pramukhaji that we could have reported to our respected readers if we only were able to understand the language. The only thing we tell is that their discussion resembled to a conference of managers.

Acharyashree spoke for some time, and according to Yuvacharyashree’s way of listening, the matter was quite interesting.

Sadhvi Pramukha Kanak Prabhaji

Sadhvi Pramukhaji contributed to the discussion.
Everybody was focussed on the saints who smoothly, but with high speed went on with their discussion.

Sadhvi Pramukha Kanak Prabhaji and Sadhvis (nuns) H.H. Acharya Mahaprajnaji talking to Sadhvi Vishrud Vibhaji, head of management of nun's affairs

Sadhvi Pramukha Kanak Prabhaji looked at Sadhvi Vishrud Vibha who had joined the discussion and talked with Acharyashree, while the Sadhvishrees of Sadhvi Pramukha’s company looked with big eyes at Acharyashree.

Three nuns Acharya Mahaprajnaji blessing one Sadhvi Sadhvis and Samanis and Karuna

Three Sadhvishrees were very concentrated; one looked at Sadhvi Vishrud Vibha, the other two at Acharyashree; one Sadhvi came directly in front of Acharyashree, while Sadhvis and Samanis enjoyed the presence of the saints. One Samani answered to Karuna’s question concerning the subject of discussion, but did not know anything about it.

Sadhvi Pramukha Kanak Prabhaji

Sadhvi Pramukha Kanak Prabhaji adopted a prayer position with a detached expression on her face.

Acharyashree then addressed Karuna by saying, “You are full of compassion now.“ His words came as unexpected as her feelings of immediate joy. The Samani near her said, “What a day! Blessings in the morning, you are lucky.” She really was happy for Karuna and continued, “We are five Samanis here.” Karuna wondered, as she had seen only four; she then understood.

When we left Oswal Bhavan, we felt like never before. First, because there are only few occasions for us to start the day with Darshan of H.H. Acharyashree; second, when we are in his auspicious presence, always something happens reaching us in depth, we sometimes are not aware immediately. Often, we only understand the subtle details of a situation in front of Acharyashree after having had a close look at the photos that serve as an inspiring reminder, as it was in this case!
