Blessing in a dream

I'm writing to share an incident from about 6 months ago.

I am a scientist working in Switzerland. I'd been invited to speak at what seemed like an important international conference in San Diego. I was happy to accept the invitation because it was an invited presentation. Once I got there, I realized that the conference was on a scale that I'd not imagined - some of the best scientists from my field of research were there and it was very humbling to have been invited to give a talk there. I'd given invited talks before but never to an august audience such as this. It was a little mind-wrecking because it would be a tough gathering to address. The format of the talk involved a presentation for about 25 minutes and then a question-answer session for 5-10 mins.

I seemed fine until the evening before the day of my talk and I started feeling quite nervous. I was up until a little late in the night making last minute changes to my talk. I had a few hours of sleep to catch before the D-day. My dream that night was very special - Guruji appeared and blessed me. It felt very nice and I was very calm after I woke up. I did my usual Kriya and vaguely remember having followed through one of Guruji's guided meditation sessions. I was very calm, most unusual given the circumstances. The time came for my talk - I went on stage and everything flowed through so seamlessly, it felt great. I wasn't ruffled by the circumstances even a week bit and the feedback following my talk was very positive.

It still feels very nice to recollect the events of that night. There's more to a Guru - Sishya relationship than what appears. It still holds its sanctity in the modern world that we live in.

Jai Guru Dev
