Blog Carnival for the Birthday of Papaji H.W.L. Poonja
October 13 is the anniversary of the birthday of H.W.L. Poonja, affectionately known by many as Papaji. I would like to honor him, I want, in honor of his birthday, to organize a blog carnival. Some have met this Indian sage in person – others know him more from a book, from satsang with one of his devotees, or even from a spiritual experience, that is, an inner encounter with him. And if you ask yourself: What is a clog carnival? Reed the answer here (click).
Papaji has changed the lives of many people. Maybe yours too? Everyone has their own relationship with the guru, with the master lineage, and every story you have with him is unique. Your experience with Papaji is unique. Most people tell me that there was an experience that changed their life – for others it is more of a constant companion. And please – even if you think it was just a very insignificant event – share it with us. Let’s bundle the gigantic power it contains and connect through our stories on the internet. You know yourself that this presence is the greatest power in the universe. Let’s bring it all together and bundle it.
How did I come up with the idea of a blog carnival in honor of Papaji?
Four weeks ago I was very happy to find a post by Chandi Devi on Facebook. She writes there about a spiritual experience she had in the presence of her Guruji, in the presence of Papaji 25 years ago. And she has kept this experience to herself until now. I even wrote about Chandi Devi’s experience in this post (click)…. It took her 25 years to decide to write about it, to share her experience. Chandi Devi’s story touched me deeply. Her words made me feel immersed in that moment. I don’t think you should wait 25 years for us to hear about what you experienced with Papaji. So what if this could change the world? Are you in on that?
How does the blog carnival work?
You write your blog article where you write about your experience with this big saint H.W.L. Poonja, also called the lion of Lucknow or simply Papaji. Of course, you can also record a podcast or make a video on YouTube. Feel free to follow my inspiration guide (below) or just write away. The working title of your post is: Blog carnival on the birthday of Papaji H.W.L. Poonja. How the Indian sage changed my life too.
You don’t have a blog? Then just write your experience here below in the comments or post it on social media and link that below in the comment.

Inspiration guide for the blog carnival
I’m already very curious about your story, about your experience. Madhukar tells his story of how he found his Papaji very often in satsang. And in this post you can read his story (click). Maybe you find it easy to write down your story? Then just start writing. If you want some guidance for it, feel free to follow my inspiration guide. Let’s begin.
