Yesterday We had a beautiful evening with Massimo from Italy or Max Ormeo as he likes to be called. We had a Fund Raising concert for Haiti and Chile with Massimo as the main singer. It was a great end to a very nice trip I had in Norway.
Massimo has a very good voice and is a mind blowing guitarist. He has a superb way of conducting a satsang. His light, humble and joyful presence is very easily likeable and he is a great performer with a good mix of professionalism, quality performance and a really warm and welcoming presence.
I have been badly missing the super energetic satsangs back home. So it was the last bhajan and though everybody else were only swaying in their chairs. I could not resist. You can see that here. Of course afetr a few minutes everybody were on their feet.
It was great experience to work with Chris or Kiran as Guruji calls him. FYI Kiran is BAWA's TTC teacher. He is the 2nd AOL teacher in the world and has traveled more than 35 countries spreading this knowledge. He has been around since the pre-kriya tape days. He was also present as one of the participants when Guruji recorded the Sudarshan kriya tape for the first time. He has many interesting stories about those days when he did his first part 1 course with Guruji in 1987. Though he is one of the senior most teachers, he is humble to the core and there is a lot to learn from his super efficient way of working. He is a perfectionist and extremely soft spoken. I tell you its a rare combination.
These 2 months passed very quickly and it was a nice visit with 6 courses and a small but beautiful concert. I heard that the refugee course project has started getting some press coverage.
A few hours and I fly back to India. Though I have had a superb time in Norway the very thought of India puts a smile on my face.
