A Celestial Inside Joke

by Aranyakananda

You all will have read that, a while back, having become captivated by the message of Swami Vidyadhishananda, I looked into the meaning behind his monastic name “Vidyadishananda”. Vidya, being a descriptive term for Saraswati, and having become grateful for the blessings of creativity in my life, I became a bit of a Saraswati devotee and looked into every aspect of devotion to Saraswati. In doing so, I found there is a symbol for the Devi, which one can see here.  This symbol may one day be a part of a tattoo of mine. Who knows. It certainly holds sacred meaning to me.

I have linked to that specific version of the image because today as I sat in a meeting during my first day at my new job, my glance fell upon a device sitting on the table which is used for teleconferencing. In the center of the device, there was a reasonable facsimile of this very symbol. I was enamored by this little celestial inside joke, since it was Swami Vidyadhishananda himself who assured me that I would be experiencing a positive change of fortune beginning in August of this year.
For those of you following this blog, please forgive my repeated praise of Swami-ji for making me aware of a true sense unshakeable hopefulness. I am not one to go around crying “It’s a sign!” I could be perfectly happy saying to myself, maybe it’s just my time to be successful and be a good breadwinner again.  But I get too much enjoyment out of the thought of sharing inside jokes with omniscience, whether it comes in the form of the words of a Swami, or from Devi Saraswati, or Lord Vishnu Himself.
