Once I was in a train on my way back home along with my friends. Lots of passengers were there in that wagon but there was a silence. Solitude of each individual was unexpected in moving train but it was. There was a spiritual environment in that train. It was looking that the way train was approaching its final station, our own self was immersing into the great oasis of silence. Large whistle and jerk pull out everyone into that train compartment again. It was a new station. A lady entered into our compartment along with her relatives. Vermilion was visible on her forehead and it was looking that she came from any Satsang. She was continuously speaking about her visit in a rhetoric way. She was really a vociferous lady.
Train left the station and again got its momentum; but now impulse of silence which tremor our spirit with its melody had left us. Wagon with eternal environment now had turned into clamorous vicinity; reason that lady and her sermons. She was infusing excerpts ‘generally found in nursery classes blended with mythological phrases’ during the whole talk. All passengers were listening lady and showed their assertion without any question. Lady was preaching nonstop. Except from the friction of wheels of the train with the track, there was only one another outcry – Lady’s sermons. She was praising her master very fundamentally.
After sometime my patience struck down by the arrows of those irritating discourses descended from bow of her oscillating lips. I intervened and told the lady that I wanted to say something; lady burst with finger towards me and replied, “If you had anything against my Master than please stop here. I cannot listen anything wrong about my master which hurt his glory in my heart.” Finger was still towards me, pupil of her eyes expanded unexpectedly but silence in that gap made me happy. Actually I had nothing against her master but I got a clue here. I told her very calmly, “Madam! How can you judge my mind, are you a fortune teller?”
Passengers whose eyes were in crush with that lady turned towards me but this time palpitation were visible on their faces. I told her, “You are looking very possessive for your master. What is the utility of your affection when there is no change in your life? You are just extending your affection – from family to master. Spirituality is an amelioration which brings you closer to your consciousness. Your spiritual faith will extend your desire and possession; it will bring no change.”
“Passengers now showed their assertion with me!”
Lady was shocked but before she said anything to me. Large whistle and jerk pull us out from that issue; this was my station. When I was coming out from my compartment, my finger was towards that lady, eyes on her shocked face and these words were on my lips, “Be silent, may be one day ecstasy of real spirit expel you.”
We can understand this real incident in many prospective. Think.
