When 9 to 5 becomes Transforming!

Hari Om Everyone! ๐Ÿ™‚ Feels amazing to be back here after such a long time. And this time for good. I won’t ever give up writing or blogging again, for I plan to evolve and grow better at it! Looking forward to your encouragement and love. ๐Ÿ™‚

I begin this new journey with an Ode to the place and the Master because of whom I am here today. ๐Ÿ™‚

Time has simply flown by and it is already a year! A year of working at this heaven called Chinmaya Mission.

I remember being stumped by the silent beauty of this Ashram right in the midst of chaotic Mumbai, when I first walked into the premises for my interview.
Since then this place has become home. My association with Chinmaya Mission goes way back to my childhood, yet this one year as a Sevak and an employee has enriched my life beyond words.

As I got out of college, I knew I wasn’t going to fit into the traditional Ad firm or media company. I wanted something different, something that fed my soul and gave flight to my dreams. As a global spiritual organization, Chinmaya Mission did just that.

From going out of my comfort zone by managing social media platforms, creating and visualizing content to still writing on what I loved,
Colleagues who are no less than family and a boss no less than a mother-like figure,
The youth camps that not just gave me some beautiful friends but also Masters who have transformed me from within,
Various activities that have taken my skills a notch up and helped me discover talents I never thought I had,
The knowledge that has helped me discover a richer inner self,
To be able to do work that makes a little difference, to be able to widen my horizons, to read more and learn more,
All the travel that has and continues to enhance my spiritual journey,
For all the challenges and growth-both personal and professional,

To the most important blessing bestowed : Finding my Guru, my Master- Swami Chinmayananda.
Each time I look around at the serene place I call my office, I can sense His compassion,
Each time I delve a little deeper into myself I can feel His Grace,
Each time I read, listen to and reflect upon His words, I can sense His guiding voice,
Each time, every moment I sense His presence!

And here’s to another year of transformation and service! ๐Ÿ™‚
