A while back, I didn’t have a good relationship with my grandfather, whom we call Bapuji. As I had a lot going on in my life, I didn’t make an effort to smooth things between us.
Two years ago, in November 2020, I was introduced to the Black Lotus app. Since then, even though there have been ups and downs in my life, I have remained calm and composed. Today, I experienced a very positive moment with my grandfather. He called me to his room for some work, and after we were done, he enquired about my progress. He said, “How are you doing? What are you going to do with your life?” Hearing his concern, I opened up to him with a lot of eagerness and enthusiasm. He patiently listened while I shared every little detail of what I was doing at that moment in my life.
He lovingly blessed me, saying, “ Go ahead; sincere efforts never fail.” After that conversation, I was so happy and wholeheartedly expressed my gratitude to him. I told him that his blessings and love were the reason I was living joyfully with my family. At that moment, I felt peaceful, having mended fences with my loving Bapuji.
The love and encouragement of one’s grandparents is a sweet blessing indeed!
