आपल्या
विचारांना प्राधान्य मिळणार कसे?


सकाळ वृत्तसेवा
Saturday, January 24th, 2009 AT 10:01 PM
पुणे, ता. २४ - ''ब्राह्मण समाजातील केवळ 11 ते 12 टक्के लोक मतदान करतात ही वस्तुस्थिती एका अहवालात नमूद केली आहे. आपण मतदान करणार नसू तर मग आपल्या मतांना आणि विचारांना प्राधान्य मिळणार कसे?'' असा सवाल डॉ. अनिरुद्ध जोशी ऊर्फ अनिरुद्ध बापू यांनी शनिवारी केला. समन्वयाची शक्ती उभी करून ब्राह्मणांनी सामर्थ्यवान संस्कृती निर्माण करावी, असे आवाहन त्यांनी केले.
पाचव्या बहुभाषिक ब्राह्मण महाअधिवेशनात "ब्राह्मण स्त्री जीवनातील स्थित्यंतरे' या विषयावरील परिसंवादात अनिरुद्ध बापू बोलत होते. प्रसिद्ध साहित्यिका डॉ. अश्‍विनी धोंगडे, औरंगाबादच्या महापौर विजया रहाटकर, बडोदा येथील सयाजी विद्यापीठाच्या हिंदी विभागप्रमुख शैलजा अंबरदार, "प्रभात'च्या अरुणा दामले आणि ऍड. अपर्णा रामतीर्थकर यांनी परिसंवादात सहभाग घेतला. ज्येष्ठ प्रवचनकार कल्याणी नामजोशी अध्यक्षस्थानी होत्या.
अनिरुद्ध बापू म्हणाले, ""या देशाची संस्कृती टिकविण्याचे काम फक्त ब्राह्मणांनी केले. कोणत्याही प्रांतात ब्राह्मणांची भाषा वेगळी असली तरी उपनयन संस्कार झाल्यावर गायत्री मंत्र आणि जानवे हे एकच आहे. आपले संस्कार घट्टपणे जपून आपण काय आहोत हे तपासले पाहिजे. लोक काय म्हणतील याला घाबरू नका. मुलांना शारीरिक आणि मानसिकदृष्ट्या कणखर बनवा. कोणी अंगावर आले तर त्याला चोपण्याची क्षमता ठेवा. आम्ही नास्तिकतेवर टीका करणार नाही. तुम्ही आमच्या आस्तिकतेवर आघात करू नका. श्रद्धेवरच माणसाचे जीवन फुलत असते.''
नामजोशी म्हणाल्या, ""भारतीय संस्कृती हा विश्‍वाचा कणा आहे. ब्राह्मणाचे ब्राह्मण्य कायम आहे, तो ब्राह्मण वंदनीय आहे. हिंदू धर्मात विवाह हा अटळ आहे. सध्या नोंदणी विवाहाची कल्पना आली आहे. आपल्या संस्कृतीमध्ये लग्न हा करार नाही तर ती शपथ आहे. ते एक व्रत आहे. पुरुष आणि स्त्री हे सहजीवन आहे, हे लक्षात घेऊन आपण एकत्र आले पाहिजे. नवी शक्ती निर्माण केली पाहिजे.''
अंबरदार यांनी आपल्या मनोगतातून काश्‍मिरी ब्राह्मण महिलांची व्यथा मांडली. दामले यांनी प्रभात कालखंडापासून चित्रपटातील स्त्री कलाकारांच्या भूमिकेचा वेध घेतला. प्रा. मेधा कुलकर्णी यांनी सूत्रसंचालन केले.
मी माफी मागते - अश्‍विनी धोंगडे
सध्याच्या काळात मुलांनी संध्या केली नाही आणि जानवे घातले नाही म्हणून बिघडले कुठे? घरातून होणारे संस्कार महत्त्वाचे आहेत, असे मत डॉ. अश्‍विनी धोंगडे यांनी व्यक्त केले. त्यावरून प्रेक्षकांमध्ये गदारोळ सुरू झाला. वेदमूर्ती मोरेश्‍वर घैसास म्हणाले, ""आम्ही इथे ब्राह्मण म्हणून जमलो आहोत. शेंडी, जानवे आणि कपाळाला गंध हीच आमची ओळख आहे. संध्या आणि गायत्री मंत्राचा जप केलाच पाहिजे. त्यातच आम्ही धर्म मानतो. धर्म हा निष्ठेशिवाय राहत नाही.'' त्यानंतरही धोंगडे यांनी माफी मागावी, अशी मागणी सुरूच राहिली. धोंगडे म्हणाल्या, ""बोलण्याच्या भरात माझ्याकडून अधिक्षेप झाला आणि त्यामुळे भावना दुखावल्या गेल्या, त्याबद्दल मी माफी मागते. उदार ब्राह्मणवृत्तीला जाणून तुम्ही क्षमा कराल, अशी अपेक्षा आहे.'' त्यानंतर परिसंवादातील पुढील वक्‍त्यांचे भाषण सुरू झाले.

THE DAWN OF A NEW ERA


The Aniruddha Pournima (Tripurari Pournima) this year (2008) witnessed about
.... shraddhaavaan be blessed with the darshan of Sadguru Shree Aniruddha (Bapu).
Doctors, engineers, lawyers, professors, professionals and other shraddhaavaan from
several walks of life came not only from distant suburbs of the city of Mumbai but
remote towns of the state of Maharashtra, from the nooks of India and in fact from
the world over and could, saying ‘Hari om’, offer their reverence before Sadguru
Bapu. Their heart full of love, they came all the way for the one blessed moment, the
darshan of the Sadguru.

No saffron clothing, no kamandalu, no mala round the neck, no rosary in the
hand, not even a tilak on the forehead and in fact with a clear and explicit view that
‘miracles are jugglery, the tricks of magicians’, how then, is Aniruddhabapu the Sadguru
of millions of highly educated and thinking bhaktas? How come? All the special
moments of grace that these bhaktas have experienced have led them to believe that
Bapu is indeed the Paramatma. Just like every other function in the year, the Aniruddha
Pournima was a day that millions spent in an ambience of bhakti. The sight of
millions queuing up for seven or even eight hours, calm but disciplined, writing the
Ramnaam book of ‘The Aniruddha’s Universal bank of Ramnaam’ through their
wait, reciting a mantra or a stotra is bound to arouse curiosity, interest about Bapu in
the mind of any person stepping in here for the first time.

Who indeed in Sadguru Aniruddha (Bapu)? Despite the fact that there is
nothing conventionally spiritual about Him, how come the bhaktas belive that He is
the Sadguru? The volunteers of the organisation participate in the seva-activities
under the guidance of Sadguru Bapu; the zeal with which they do so and in no way
compromisng on their family responsibilities, on their occupation is truly astonishing.
How come this huge following and that too without any deliberate effort at
propagation? What does Bapu say? What exactly does He want to do? Why does He
want to do all these seva activities? These are some of the questions that crop up in
the mind of the new-comer here.

Dr. Aniruddha Dhairyadhar Joshi i.e. Shreeaniruddha (Bapu) is an M.D., a
professional medical consultant. A perfect family person, through His own conduct,
Bapu communicates that it is very much possible to achieve the highest purpose in
life without turning away from worldly life. Spirituality is not escapism. And shrugging
off responsibilities, giving up home, walking away from the family and smearing the
body with ash just cannot be the means to achieving the highest goal in life. ‘Misplaced
notions of worldly life indicate equally misplaced notions concerning the Higher
purpose’; and leading man on the path of the purushartha, this is what Bapu says
pointing to the following verse in the Shreesaisachcharit:


ì`dhmat nmD$b R>o{dVm§ Mm¡H$gŸ&
na_mW© nmdob Aà`mgŸ&
åhUy{Z àn§Mt Zgmdm AmigŸ&
nwéfmWv CXmg Agy Z`oŸ&&
(Explanation: Alertness in worldly affairs facilitates the achievement of the
Highest purpose in life. Do not therefore have apathy for your worldly duties, keep
striving for the purushartha)
(Shreesaisachcharit, chapter 14/27)

It is this verse that contains the answers to questions like what does Bapu
intend to do? and what does Bapu really wish? That every human being,walking on
the path of the purushartha, attain the ‘oj’, is what Bapu wants. The attainment of
the six purushartha of dharma, artha, kama, moksha, bhakti and maryada, is indeed
the highest fulfilment of the human birth. It is in order that both the worldly life and
the achievement of the Highest Principle become sources of true joy and at one and
the same time, in other words so that every human being walks firm and consistent
on the path of the purushartha, that Bapu through His own Word, caused the Work,
‘Shreemadpurushartha Grantharaaj’ to come into being.
Spelling out the purpose of His work, Shreeaniruddha states in clear terms in
the Shreemadpurushartha Grantharaaj,

“My dear friends, I, Aniruddha, your Friend, your Mate, have just the one
mission in life - to get the entire universe to fulfill this purushartha of maryada, to
teach and establish this purushartha - that is My aim and without the fulfilment and
the establishment of the purushartha of maryada, the Ramrajya, the reign of Shreeram,
the reign of the maryadapurushottam (the ideal, the only complete and perfect being
who was the epitome of maryada) can never be ushered in.
....and that is precisely why, ‘to imbibe and cultivate the purushartha of maryada,
to nurture it and while doing so, to allow it to develop unrestrained’, is My resolve.”
Bapu connects with every shraddhavan in the role of a friend. He never calls
Himself an avataar.

In the Shreemadpurushartha Grantharaaj, He states with His
signature and very clearly -

‘I am your Friend.’
‘I am not an avataar, not of anybody. I was always Aniruddha, I am Aniruddha
and Aniruddha I will always be.’

‘I am a warrior and I enjoy teaching the art of warfare to all those, who wish
to fight their destiny.’

The three volumes of the Shreemadpurushartha Grantharaaj, the
‘Satyapravesh’, the ‘Prempravaas’ and the ‘Anandasadhana’ were released and in simple
words Bapu opened for us, a means of realizing progress in its entirety, walking all
along, the path of the parameshvar. ‘Call Me what you like but it is this one role that
I wish to live. I am your Friend, a Friend who never betrays, a Friend who wants to
see you happy.’ That indeed is Bapu, that is Bapu’s stand.
In explanation to the purushartha of ‘dharma’ Bapu says, the supreme divine
principles of Truth, Love and Joy that stem from purity - their base; and whose one
and only decisive norm is purity, are the true dharma. ‘It is the path of maryada that
grants the aishvarye of the parameshvar to the human dharma’ adds Shreeaniruddha
Bapu in the Shreemadpurushartha.

All the saints of India have upheld the path of bhakti that was always a part of
the ancient Indian values. An excessive and unreasonable inclination towards cessation
of worldly engagement as also a way of life essentially motivated by material, selfseeking
activity, both classify as extremist thought and are largely responsible for the
imbalance in individual human life as well as that in society. Science and spirituality are
by no means contrary or conflicting, they are complementary. It is by striking an
accord of the two, that human civilization can make progress, emphasises Bapu.
Bapu instituted the ‘Panchasheel examinations’ based on the great work
‘Shreesaisachcharit’ and in order to shed light on various aspects of bhakti, He included
in them, practicals relating to scientific principles indicating thereby, the path of the
accord between the two.

In the Shreemadpurushartha Grantharaaj, Shreeaniruddha talks cearly about
His five Gurus. ‘Dattaguru is My Lord and Master, Gayatrimata - My vaatsalyaguru,
Shreeram is the Doer, Shreehanumanta - My Protector and Shreesainath - the Director.’
Time and again Shreeaniruddha refers to works like the Manache shlok, the
Bheemaroopi Maharudra Stotra, the Daasabodh all by Samartha Ramdas Swami as
also the following by the great saint Shreetulsidasji viz. the Sunderkand from the
Shreeramacharitamanas, the Hanumanchalisa, the Sankatamochan Hanumaanaashtak,
indicating to us the path of bhakti of Shreehanumanta, the ideal of those on the
path of maryada. All those who were with Bapu as part of the ‘rasayatras’ to Shirdi,
Akkalkot, Dehu-Alandi, Goa (Mangesh-Shantadurga) as also of the bhaavayatra to
Pandharpur have experienced ever so many blessed moments to cherish in their
hearts for ever. The Ganesh festival is celebrated in Bapu’s own home, which then
hundreds of thousands of people visit. The procession for the immersion of the
Ganesh idol is a huge sea, a sea brimming over with bhakti.
Visiting sacred places of worship, doing different upasanas in these places has
drawn the Indian psyche since ancient times. The Gurukul at Juinagar, the
Govidyapeetham at Kothimbe near Karjat, the Atulitabaladham and the
Sadgurupunyakshetram at Nimbagaon near Dhule are all realizations of ideal sacred
places of worship that happened under Bapu’s guidance. Also under His gracious
guidance and blessings happened the installation of the dhyaanamoorti of Shreesainath
at ‘Sai Nivas’, Bandra, the home of Hemadpant, who penned the Shreesaisachcharit.
Hemadpant’s grandson and the present Pipa Appasaheb Dabholkar along with his
wife Meenavainee were the ones through whom Bapu got this beautiful deed done.
As for the Shreeaniruddhagurukshetram at Khar, Mumbai, all one can say is that it is
a sacred place of Supreme eminence, the zenith, the tiara of all sacred places that be.
What every single person coming to Bapu invariably feels, is
Shreeaniruddhabapu’s ‘pure, sheer love’, love not loaded with any motive whatsoever-
His very essential aspect. Neither does He expect nor does He accept anything from
anybody, never - leave alone the day of Gurupournima, just never. It is not even
mandatory for those attending His pravachan (discourse) to offer the namaskar to
Bapu. The discourse too is a guidance in simple words as to the attainment of
progress on the path of bhakti without turning away from worldly life.
Every Thursday Bapu, while doing the pooja of Shreedattatreya, recites along
with all present, the fourteenth chapter of the Gurucharitra. He then does the
‘Aradhanajyoti’ upasana with the bhaktas present and even participates in the gajars
sung at the time. Bapu says that bhakti is the supreme strength and so He initiated
the ‘Aradhanajyoti’ upasana that will equip the shraddhaavaan to face and successfully
tide over the difficult times lying ahead and help achieve development and progress
in his life. In order that His friends become aware, alert and prepare well in time for
the horrific era awaiting the world, Bapu penned the work ‘The Third World War’ for
them. This work does not tell the future, it is a visionary’s study of the past and of
the present that led to an assessment of the future.
This work contains multiple aspects: an evaluation of the two world wars that
occurred, a explanation to the phenomenon of war, the event of the third world war
in the context of the current international scenario, biological and chemical weaponry,
several means of warfare and many more. The Dattajayanti of 2006 saw the release
of this work in Marathi and English and now the Hindi version too is out on the
stands. Be it the scheming strategy of China or incidents in the middle-east or any
other events for that matter; reading this work through, will confirm all of these as
we have indeed experienced many of them in the recent past.
Facing the horrifying era of the third world war, calls for equipping and
strengthening the shraddhaavaan at all levels. ‘Defence is defeat. Attack is the best
form of defence’ was the core directive of the ancient Indian Balavidya and focussing
on this very principle, Shreeaniruddha revived the ancient Indian martial arts, the
Mudgalvidya and the Sooryabhedanvidya. He also established the ‘Aniruddha’s
Academy of Disaster Management’ (A.A.D.M.) that would train and prepare His
friends to face all kinds of natural and man-made disasters, save their own lives and
even that of others; in sum train in disaster management.
The above project also happens to be part of the 13-point programme that
Bapu gave to us on 3rd October 2002. These training courses that include various
rescue methods and CPCR techniques etc. are offered free of cost. To date, the
DMVs (disaster management volunteers) have made a valuable contribution towards
managing disasters. The unusual downpours of 26th July 2005, the landslide at Sakinaka,
the serial blasts in Mumbai’s local trains on 11th July 2006, the bomb blast at Ghatkopar
on 2nd December 2002 - DMVs had rushed to offer help at the site of all of these
disasters and were part of the rescue operations. They even manage crowds every
year at the time of the Ganesh festival. Similarly the DMVs manage and control
crowds at annual fairs at Mandhradevi, Jyotiba and even at Nasik at the time of the
Kumbha mela.

Under the guidance of Shreeaniruddha Bapu, several seva projects are
implemented as part of the 13 point programme. A health and hygiene campaign
has been implemented for the last five years at Kolhapur-Karanjphen. This year
(2008) about 16,300 students and villagers availed of medical examinations. Accordingly
medecines were distributed and treatment advised. Many were given spectacles. Tests
like the ECG, the sonography, X-ray, etc. and even dental check-ups and treatment
are conducted free of cost. Besides, 7634 students were examined medically and
were then given uniforms (2 sets each and so 15,268 sets), sports material, caps,
slippers, etc. all free ofcost and so that they attend school regularly. The uniforms
thus distributed are made from the fabric woven from the yarn that results from the
‘vastra project’ (charkha project) under the 13 point programme. The volunteers
themselves spin the charkha and the yarn produced is used to make uniforms for the
needy students. Till date, 4000 charkhas have yielded 1,58,700 metres of fabric
resulting in 71,376 uniform sets that were received by 35,683 needy students.
The ‘Annapoornaprasadam’ project offers to students of the rural and tribal
areas a mid-day meal. The volunteers themselves cook the food and serve it to the
children. As of today 3100 students belonging to 32 different schools avail of this
seva. The Kolhapur-Karanjphen project could offer mahaprasad (food) to 40,000
adults and children in the region. here again it was the volunteers who cooked and
served the food with love to them.
The eco-friendly Ganesh idols, another innovative project is a significant measure
towards protecting the environment. Ganesh idols are made by volunteers from the
pulp of the paper of the Ramnaam book that the shraddhaavaan bhaktas write. This
year (2008) about 3200 Ganesh idols were taken home and worshipped.
Moreover, other projects include provision of foodgrains, medicines, clothes,
material required in school, etc. to persons suffering from leprosy. These persons also
receive guidance as to possibilities of earning their livelihood. Seva is als offered in
institutions for the mentally challenged, the mental hospitals. Students residing in
remote places difficult to access are also provided with articles of everyday use, school
text books, etc.
In the year 2005-2006 the cattle numbering 400 - 500 of the famine-struck
regions in Purandar taluka of Pune district received a regular provision of a truckload
of fodder for one whole month. This seva on the part of the organization reached
the cattle at the right time averting the possibility of starvation. The volunteers then
put in their time and physical energy to help the residents of this region to successfully
face the paucity of water. Also, under the ‘Old is gold’ project of the 13 point
programme, a survey was conducted in the taluka of Purandar and essentials were
distributed free of cost among the people.
As the volunteers participate in the various seva projects, they never lose sight
of the fact that Bapu always emphasises: He says, bhakti is the essence, the core of
seva. It is devotional services that we offer. The term ‘bhakti’ stems from the root
verb ‘bhaj sevaayaam’. Thus ‘bhakti’ implies seva offered with love and affection.
Neither can bhakti be complete without seva nor can true, heartfelt seva happen
without the foundation of bhakti. Bhakti keeps us firmly grounded, it does not allow
the ego to take root, says ShreeaniruddhaBapu.
‘Preach only what you practise’ or rather ‘Practise first and only then preach it’
is what Bapu actually follows. Every single day Bapu spins the charkha, He writes the
Ramnaam book, walks for an hour as part of the exercise regime, takes up His
children’s studies, reads a chapter of the Shreesaisachcharit, two from the Gurucharitra,
he reads the Vishnusahasranaam, the entire Sunderkand of the Shreeramacharitamanas,
the ‘Ramrasayan’, recites the Dattabavani, reads a chapter from the work
‘Dattamahaatmya’ by Vasudevanandasaraswati and also the Ramaraksha.
He keeps saying, ‘If at all you wish to give me something, give Me the Ramnaam
jap, the Ramaraksha stotra jap. I will deposit it in My Dattaguru’s bank but for your
sake, not mine and put it to use when you are in real need. Give your time, give your
efforts for the seva of your needy brethern, for the upasana of the bhagavant. You
need to offer at least twenty-four minutes out of twenty-four hours in bhakti of the
bhagavanta. It is this that is ultimately going to be useful. In the horrific times of the
third world war, it is this reserve of bhakti and seva that is going to salvage you.
Bhakti is the path of the valiant not of the coward. It is a totally misplaced and
wrong notion to define for oneself ridiculous associations with bhakti like being
shabbily dressed or being foolish or uncaring about worldly affairs. Modern technology,
science, an alert yet ethical worldly and material life, being tidily and neatly dressed are
all needs of the hour and one just has to move on with time.’ In the preface to the work ‘The Third WorldWar’ Sheereaniruddha Bapu says, ‘There is no doubt that over the next twenty to twenty-five years, conflict will become an aspect of everyday doings and in every region on earth. In the coming times, the
equation of today might not be valid tomorrow and what was valid at seven in the
morning might be flung right out of the window after its purpose is served and at
five minutes past seven. The calendar is released every once in a year because there is
a definite kind of mathematical formula and construction involved. The calendar of
the coming ‘third world war’ is however, going to be a new one everyday.’
Dwelling on India’s role in the work ‘The Third World War, Shreeaniruddhabapu
states in detail that it is indeed going to be a significant one. In explanation He says,
‘What is most important is that the task of salvaging the world on all fronts as also
that of its post-war rehabilitation will, in all probability fall to India’s lot.’
Shreeaniruddha strongly believes that no matter how big the destructive power,
it is as slight as a blade of grass, just no match for a pure, positive and constructive
power. Besides, for the purpose, He is ever willing and committed to undertake a
morally worthy and constructive task complying with the norms of the parameshvar.
In His role of a Friend, Shreeaniruddha is ever at work, ever willing to take along
with Him all the shraddhaavaan on the path of accord mentionned earlier, the path
that leads beyond any conflict whatsoever.... to usher in the new era, an era of love!
An era of the human, the humane dharma! An era of pure friendship!
He cherishes in His open eyes, the beautiful dream of the dawn, the dawn of
the new era. His relentless and infinite effort will mark the break of dawn. The one singular focus and aim, the one life mission of the One, who will cause the break of dawn, the sunrise and light the way is, I shall fill this world with happiness and abound with joy, all that be.

GOVIDYAPITHAM


What indeed is Gokul? We wonder. The domain where Gopalkrishna, His mates the gopas, their cows along with their calves lived a life of joy that is Gokul. The moment we set foot in the premises of “Govidyapeetham” that is precisely what we feel, “Yes, this is it, this is Gokul.”
Govidyapeetham was established under the auspices of “The Sadguru Shree Aniruddha Upasana Trust” and thanks to the blessings and guidance of P.P. Sadguru Shree AniruddhaBapu. Situated amid the beautiful natural environs of Kothimbe and spread over about 18 acres of land, Govidyapeetham is a mere half an hour drive from the city of Karjat
(Raigad district) and can also be accessed from Panvel, Neral and even via Kadav. An aerial view of the topography presents Govidyapeetham in the shape of the ear of a cow (Gokarna).The main entrance of Govidyapeetham faces the Sahyadari Mountains and the old fort of Pet Village constructed during Chhatrapati Shivaji’s times. Beyond the mountains,
lies the ‘BheemaShankar Jyotirling’. An idol of Shree Ganesh established by an ancient sage is also to be found in the Kadav Village. Not very far, in the village of Jarukh are the caves that date back to the era of the Pandavas.

Gopalvidya:
1. An effort to protect and nurture the cow, believed to be the dwelling of 33 crore deities.
2. To spread pure and sacred thoughts about the cow
3. To revive and impart the forgotten ancient Indian knowledge pertaining to the Govidya, the Gopalvidya, the
Gayatrividya as also to mantras that help earn merit, viz. the Gosukta, the Gomatimantra, the Surabhimantra, the
Gayatrimantra.

1. Shree Krishna Sabhapeetham
The main attraction of Govidyapeetham is the Shree Krishna sabhapeetham. An idol of the eight year old Shree
Krishna stands in the sanctum sanctorum of the sabhapeetham. 33 divine powers were invoked during a period of 33
days beginning from the 13th April 2002 to the15th May 2002. A group of 108 bhaktas recited the prescribed mantra and
the Abhishek too was performed on each of these days. The idol of Shreekrishna has the cow (Gomata) standing close
and gazing fondly His Feet. Four nanda deepas that burn round the clock illumine the sabhapeetham. Every pillar of the
sabhapeetham holds a painting of each of the 10 Gurus of Shree Aniruddha as also that of saints and bhaktas immersed
in the bhakti of Shreekrishna.

The sabhapeetham includes a huge seating area (sabhagriha) before the idol of Shreekrishna. Bhaktas may sit here
and pray.

10. Sant Tulsidas
Bhaktas may do the pradakshina of the sanctum sanctorum. Courses based on the Gopalavidya and the
Govindvidya will be conducted in the sabhapeetham.

2. Pushkarinee Teertha
In the exact centre of this sacred place is the ‘Muchkund Vriksha’ blessed by Shree Radha. The water used for the Abhishekh of Lord Krishna’s idol waters the Pushkarinee Teertha. The Harivijay Granth states that 12 Parikrama of the Muchkund Vriksha fills our life with joy. Bushes of the Krishna Tulsi demarcate the path of the parikrama. This entire area
emanates peace and tranquillity.

3. Dhyaan Kuteer
Close to the Pushkarinee teertha are the five Dhyaan kuteers (Meditation Huts). The floor of these huts has beenplastered with cow dung. This provides a very holy and pure atmosphere. The ambience in the Kuteers has been rendered sacred and siddha by the blessings and grace of P.P. Sadguru Shreeaniruddha. Bhaktas with immense love and firm faith, meditating in these huts have been graced with visions of their ishtadevataa near the old banyan tree (vata
vriksha) that stands opposite these huts.

4. Goshala (Cow shed)
The two separate sections of the Goshala house 30 cows and bulls each. The area for cows also houses the calves. Special areas have been systematically assigned for the supply of fodder and drinking water. Separate arrangements have also been made for clearance of dung. An area has been allotted to facilitate the delivery of cows. An area of more than 2 acres has been developed as grazing grounds for cows and their calves. On the occasion of vasu baras in 2001, sawatsa dhenu (a cow that has a calf) made of mud was worshipped under the ancient banyan tree. On the birthday of Sadguru Shreeaniruddha, 15 cows of the Gir breed and 3 bulls were brought to the goshala. On 17th November five peacock feathers were worshipped with the chanting of chaturvyuhamantras. On arrival of the cows one of these peacock feathers was put up in the goshala and the mud idol of sawatsa dhenu was immersed. The surplus milk collected in the goshala is sent to the Remand Home in Karjat. Mugdhatai Prasade, an expert in this field and a veterinary doctor, Dr. Thakurdas take care of the cows.

5. Dhunimata
Exactly behind the cowshed in the direction of main hall is the dhunimata. On 8th August 2002, P.P. Suchitdada lit the sacred fire (dhuni) in the presence of P.P. Sadguru Shreeaniruddha and P.P.Nandamai. Dried cakes of dung, grass and samidha (wooden twigs meant to be offered in the sacred) are used to keep this dhuni burning incessantly. This dhunimata blazes down the ill effects of the past deeds of bhaktas and thereby protects them. Five pradakshinas are performed around the dhunimata. The pradakshina may be performed with the firm belief that if I surrender all my vices unto the dhunimata, she will surely cleanse me of them. Udi collected here each day is sent to the various Upasana centers and to the venue of the Thursday Pravachan for its free distribution to the bhaktas. The
daily prayers at the Govidyapeetham begin with the worship of dhunimata.

6. Vata Vruksha (The Banyan Tree)
700 to 750 years old, this tree is in the shape of the pindi of Lord Shankar. Symbolic of the Panchapurusharth, the trunk of this Banyan tree is wide and is actually a group of five distinct trunks. Lord Dattatreya is believed to dwell here. The owner of this land is known to have had the darshan of P.P. Sadguru Shreeaniruddha at this place even before he ever actually physically saw or knew Him. This tree stands just beyond the grazing grounds of the cows.

7. Tulsi Vrindavan
This vrindavan was made as per the wish and instruction of P.P. Nandamai, in fact Laxmi. It is a practice to perform five pradakshinas around the vrindavan, chanting the Ghorkastodharan Stotra and recalling all the while, Lord Shreedattatreya in the mind. Bhaktas believe that this is the dwelling of Shreeradhaji. The pradakshina around the Tulsi
vrindavan rids of all misery and even fulfils the wishes of bhaktas.

8. Digvijaya Paduka
In the shape of a tortoise, this place reminds of the ‘Kurmaavataar’. Eight pillars support the main dais inside this structure. Uttering the words ‘Hari Om’, Sadguru Shreeaniruddha conveyed sacred and divine vibrations into these pillars, filling thereby the entire place with purity and sanctity. On 6th June 2001, at the auspicious moment of the braahma muhurta, a radiant Sadhu gifted Padukas to Shri. Vijay dada Bhingarde. On 13th April 2002 Vijaydada Bhingarde after reciting the mantras placed the paduka on his head and installed them at this place. A picture of Shreekrishna with P.P. Sadguru Shreeaniruddha and Gomata (cow) standing before Him has been installed behind the padukas. Every day the Digvijaya paduka poojan takes place before 9.00 a.m. There is a ‘yagya kund’ in the middle of the hall
where the following three types of yaags are performed:

1. Vyankatesh Kaivalya yaag : Mondays and Saturdays
2. Shree Mahaganpati Heramba yaag : Tuesdays and Fridays
3. Shree Dattaguru avdhoot yaag : Wednesday and Thursday


On Sundays however, all the three yaags are performed.
9) Dwarkamai is awake once again...
On the beautiful morning of Kojagiri Poornima, Sadguru Bapuji proceeded from Happy Home to
Govidyapeetham Karjat, with a few devotees along with Him. All the fellow devotees who were travelling by
two buses and a few cars reached Govidyapeetham by 10.15 a.m. Though all of us have known each other for
quite a few years now but somehow of late had not met or interacted with one another due to lack of time
arising from generally other pre occupations in life. Each one's countenance was beaming with joy and pleasure
at the prospect of the reunion after such a long period. In spite of this joy every one one still had a single
question drumming in their minds – Why has our dear God unexpectedly called all of us collectively today?

What is exceptional that is going to take place today?
" Come Bapu has called all of you", immediately on receiving this communication, all of us on finishing our breakfast proceeded towards Bapu. On reaching the main hall we could see a new structure on the left hand side. We all started walking in that direction. We also took off our footwear before entering the place. All our eyes shone up when we saw the scene inside the edifice. We saw P.P Bapu, Nandamai, Suchit Dada and Sameer Dada in front of us. Bapu, started asking all of us, come and see, how do you all like this? Time, minutes and years seemed to have stood still and all was erased from each one's mind. This is the most beautiful moment! - it was the universal feeling being experienced by each one present there. Bapu was smiling with immense joy and pleasure. He said, "So, do you recollect anything? Yes, this place where we all have gathered is the Dwarkamai of Shirdi. Exactly the same. Bapuji started explaining,"When Sainath was in Shirdi and the Dwarkamai that existed then - this is exactly the same Dwarkamai, the unchanged Dwarkamai of the year 1916". Really on entering that structure one wondered if the wheels of time had moved backwards? All present there experienced the identical thought. Nearly after 90 years everybody had reached Sainath's era, all of us just could not believe what was happening. Where 1916 and where we were in 2005 now?
We wondered what Hemadpant would have felt if he was amongst us now? The Sai of Shri Saisatcharit has always given to the entire universe and is eternal. If Hemadpantji was here today, how pleased he would have been, was the active thought that raced through our minds. Wish, he could have himself narrated all about Dwarkamai to us today. The flooring on the ground was the same, the same walls, the same pillars, the same place for Baba to sit, the same aasan, fireplace, the courtyard of Dwarkamai, the cooking place in the courtyard, the place where Baba used to stand - everything was just exactly the same. The most important article was right in front of Dwarkamai; it was the rock on which Baba used to sit and Sainathji's photograph above the rock. What all do I observe? What do I experience? Where all do I look? This was the state all of us were in on that day. The ones who recollected all the preceding memories just could not stop their flow of tears. Today nobody could or wanted to control the tears of joy that were rising from the innermost being of one's self. Somebody was surely sowing the seeds of Sai Aniruddha's love today.
Sameer Dada offered beautiful garlands both at Sai's photograph kept at the seat made of rock as well as the dhuni. He then very lovingly and respectfully bowed and paid obeisance at both the places. All were enthralled at this sight. As per Bapu's instructions Sameer Dada installed our beloved Hemadpant's photograph in the Dwarkamai and offered a garland to the same too and again bowed low very humbly. Then we all followed Bapu to the holy
Pushkarini tirtha. Here Bapu Himself installed the Garudstambh. Bapuji said," These two most important devotees meaning Garud and Hanumant are not different from one another. After the Murlidhar main hall was established, then for some time very important prayers were conducted here and only after the successful completion of those Upasanas today we can install this pillar over here. On this pillar is the Garud, the eagle

hat is Ram's vehicle. This is the centre point, which will erase our sins, and Hanuman in any case is always chanting Ram's name. In the Panchmukh Hanumatkavach Strotra when we see the face in the Panchmukhi formwe can understand the oneness of both. Bapuji Himself paid obeisance to that pillar and after putting His ear to the pillar, He hugged the same verY lovingly. Bapuji said," Any kind and gentle being who puts his ear with full devotion to this pillar will surely be able to hear the Ramnaam. The Mahapraan of the universe, Hanuman is incessantly chanting Ram's name. After the installation of the Garudstambh Bapu brought all of us back to Dwarkamai. Bapu asked all of us to sit in the open space there and He Himself along with Suchit Dada and Nandamai sat on the steps of the Dwarkamai. Bapuji then said, "Any devotee can come here, if anybody wants to experience the Sai Satcharit then that person has to just come and sit here. You can read the Sai Satcharit here, write the Ramnaam and if nothing else you can sit facing Sainath's photograph and gaze lovingly and adoringly in His eyes. We can experience the incidents and events that are described in the Sai Satcharit in this very place. Outside Dwarkamai are planted all those trees that are mentioned in the Sai Satcharit." Suddenly nobody had any other world existing at that place and moment, each one there was only eager to actually live the life during the time when the Sai Satcharit was written. Dwarkamai was now fully awake and was arousing her little infants too. Everybody was completely lost and totally immersed in Bapu's words and the peaceful environment resonant there. The mangalcharan, the 11 promises, the gajjar of Sai's name and the grand finale was Sainath's arati. Bapu was one with all the devotees during the singing of the prayers. Nobody wanted to leave this Gurukul; all had the strong urge to be there forever. Soon it was 2.30 in the afternoon. All present in Dwarkamai were actually experiencing the Sai Satcharit in some way or the other. Some read the 11th chapter of the Sai Satcharit, some were writing the Ramnaam, some were narrating Baba's tales and some were talking about grandfather Chaubal. Now the play of sun and shade since morning was replaced by dark clouds and soon after some time it started raining. It kept pouring continuously. Everybody was reminded of the 11th chapter of the Sai Satcharit. Bapuji said," For every true Sai bhakt, Sai Satcharit itself is Shirdi and the 11th chapter is Dwarkamai and the Sai sitting in Dwarkamai is the blessing and grace that is received from reading the 11th chapter.

" Purel Apurva Ichit Kaam. Vyahal Anti Purna Nishkam. Pavaal Durlabh Sayujyadhaam. Akhand Ram Ladhaal"

This is the only verse in the Shri Saisatcharit where Hemadpant has given complete assurance about being able to attain the eternal Ram. This is the Rudradhayay. Rudra meaning Shiv. Shiv also is ceaselessly chanting Ram's name. Bapu then came back to Dwarkamai at 6.30 in the evening and did the installation of the Tulsi Vrindavan in the courtyard of Dwarkamai and then initiated the Satsang. In the Satsang at first Das Ganu's "Shirdi Majhe Pandharpur" was recited 5 times, then the Sairam Jaap, followed by the gajjar of Govind KrishnaN Vithal, then Chaubaldada's gajjar – "Om Sai Shri Sai Jai Jai Sairam" was chanted. Bapuji addressed all by saying, "Friends, This Dwarkamai is not a replica of the Dwarkamai in Shirdi but is the reinstatement of the original Dwarkamai itself. My dear ones come again and again to this edifice, read the Sai Satcharit, write the Ramnaam and keep on gazing lovingly at Sainathji. Where must be my Sainath seated? How would have Mirikar come here? When Madhavrao was bitten by the snake, how he must have come running here? Try and reminisce these events and through that learn to experience Baba. On coming here each being will experience peace and a sense of balance.
The pure vibrations and the holy environment here have a lot to offer to all. You can even stay here; you can sit the entire night in Dwarkamai."Lagta Ya Shalesh Paaye, Kaun Hatbhaagi Maghara Jaaye". I give you full assurance that nobody who enters this place will go back empty handed. We all will comehere to celebrate the Deepotsav on the day of Kartik Ekadashi. This Dwarkamai has eight corners. Manyindividuals have strived very hard to create this beautiful Dwarkamai. We must first and foremost leave the habit of making excuses when we are serving God or doing any work assigned by Him and more important than that is that we must stop being untruthful in front of Him. He is filled with "Truth" Himself.

When you speak lies to Him, then even if He wishes to, He cannot help you. So please immediately stop being dishonest. I am very pleased at seeing that each one has a Ramnaam book and each one is also seeming very eager to complete this notebook. Ramnaam has a lot of strength. This is that one place which radiates energy to all in equal proportion irrespective of the kind of person." Bapu kept talking and we went on listening, and may these moments never ever conclude was the yearning in each one's heart. It was in this very Dwarkamai that Baba had ground the grains to destroy the troubles in the minds of the people. Sainathji lit the lamps of Bhakti in the hearts of each one. Whether atheist or devotee all come to Dwarkamai for shelter in times of difficulty. Without any differentiation of this one is mine ant the other is not, Sainath blesses each one with Udi and grace. Mahalsapati and Kote Patil have stayed awake many a nights in this very Dwarkamai. The title of "Hemadpant" after the famous "Dhoolbeth" was awarded to Hemadpantji in this very Dwarkamai. Das Ganu was blessed with the Prayag Darshan also over here itself. On Diwali when Baba was refused oil, He lit lamps with the help of water instead, again in this very Dwarkamai. P.P. Bapu's great grandfather and Sadguru Shri Vidyamakrand Gopinathshastri Padhye according to the wishes of Swami Samarth had come to visit Sainathji at this very place and here itself He was asked, " Have you recognized me now atleast?" This question was asked by Baba in this Dwarkamai itself. Not one or two but innumerable devotees have come to Dwarkamai to meet Shri Sainathji. Each was sheltered and supported by Dwarkamai. One of the devotees asked Bapu why the foundation of the Dwarkamai was being performed on the occasion of Kojagiri Poornima? Then Bapu explained that for this there are three beautiful and important reasons. The first was the description of the incident of irrepressible rain when the weather was uncontrollable and the way Sainathji had exhibited full control over the fury of nature in the eleventh chapter, the second was when Das Ganu went to seek permission from Baba to go to Prayag and was told by Baba that your Prayag is very much over here only and He was blessed with the Ganga and Yamuna river flowing from Baba's divine feet and the most important reason was that Kojagiri Poornima was the day when Sainath had arrived in Shirdi and was welcomed by Mahalsapati in the Khandoba temple with the greeting of " Come Sai". All these three very important incidents had taken place on the day of the Kojagiri Poornima itself.


10) Deepotsav... Festival of Lights...

Our dear and revered Nandamataji came on the day of "Deep Amavasya" (new moon day in the month of Ashad). On that day people light lamps in their houses and pray to goddess Mahalaxmi. Due to the absence of the moon on the Amavasya day it is generally dark and in the Ashad month this darkness is even denser due to the presence of heavy black clouds. This beloved mother of the devotees – Mahalaxmi, Sacchidananda wipes out the fear that arises due to this darkness. This Sacchidananda Goddess Shakti is the one who is abundant with
supreme energy and this mother of the universe with Her radiance of grace completely eliminates this intense unfathomable darkness.

It is Mother Saachidananda who illuminates countless lamps of bhakti, love, service, surrender and the feeling of seeking shelter in the minds of the devotees and fills all the paths with light and energy. The mother of the universe Chidananda is always very eager to forever light the lamp of eternal happiness and joy in the heart of the devotee and eradicate the darkness of turmoil. Nandamataji blessed us with delight by celebrating the festival of lights in Dwarkamai on the sacred occasion of Kartik Ekadashi. The devotee who lights lamps in Dwarkamai with absolute dedication will have his life always blessed and overflowing with the radiance and luminosity of bliss. He will never be entangled in the twines of sadness, unrest, darkness instead he will always be sheltered under the umbrella of Saachinanda’s
grace. He will be able to easily balance his life as a householder and his spiritual pursuits together. We are all very well aware of how Saibaba had celebrated a unique festival of lights in Dwarkamai. Baba used to get oil daily from the shops in Shirdi and with that oil He used to light lamps that shone through the entire night in Dwarkamai. One year on a Diwali day all the shopkeepers in Shirdi refused to give oil to Baba. Then Baba did the Brahmarpan of the little left over quantity of oil that was in the container and filled the same container back with water and lit all the lamps in Dwarkamai with this water. Look at Baba’s miracle, the flame of the lamps that He lit with the water was bright throughout the night, and Dwarkamai was sparkling and dazzling in the light of these lamps. Soon this news spread in Shirdi and in the surrounding villages too. All the people who came to see this event were completely amazed. Till then nobody was aware of Baba’s divine powers and personality. Many were attracted to Baba due to this divine miracle of the mysterious Deepotsav in Dwarkamai, this incident made people aware of Baba as the incarnation of god. The heart of every devotee who came to Dwarkamai was kindled by Baba with the wick of faith and patience and the lamp of true devotion was then fully lit transforming each one’s entire life into a festival of lights. With the grace of our Sadguru let us also celebrate the festival of lights in our lives and let our complete life progress in that divine glow. With this purpose in mind we should light the lamps here and pray – "Tamso Ma Jyotirgamay"

11) Paapvimochak Pradakshina
The new practice of the ‘Paapvimoc-hak Pradakshina’ was initiated at the sacred location of
Govidyapeetham near Kothimbe - Karjat on the auspicious occasion of Gurupoornima. Placed right in front of Shri Muralidharji’s statue is the Garudastambh around which one circumambulates. On this pillar two idols each of Hanumanji and Garudji are existent. A single ‘Papvimoc-hak Kumbh’ is created with six green coloured pots positioned one on top of the other. The six pots represent the six internal enemies of a person. These six foes are: attachment, pride, anger, envy, passion, and greed, these are the main causes that lead a man onto the path of sin. Only a Sadguru’s grace can completely obliterate our sins and help us to have power over our inner foes and only bhakti towards the Sadguru will allow us to receive His grace. On the Gurupoornima day the important pot was installed under the Garudastambh and an upasana was initiated as per the guidance and permission of our Sadguruji. Since the day of Gurupoornima all of us have been granted the opportunity of performing this Pradikshna. We need to carry the Paapvimoc-hak Kumbh either on our head or in our hands and go around the Garudstambh for a minimum of 5 times and a maximum of 108 times. After which one has to go around the Pushkarini once. While doing both the Pradikshnas one must chant

‘Kalyug Mein Ek Hi Trata Aniruddha Ram Re, Mere Sangh Chale Bole Mera Jagjethi Re’.

Then after that one has to offer the Paapvimoc-hak Kumbh in the Paapdahak Agnihotra that is situated behind the Pushkarini and finally one is required to go to Dwarkamai to prostrate in obeisance. The Paapvimoc-hak pradakshina when performed with pure love and complete devotion will definitely yield us more and more of our Sadguru’s grace and energy, which in turn will help us to get rid of our sins. We can offer 1,5 or 11 Paapvimoc-hak Kumbhs in
the holy fire. The number of times that we wish to do the pradakshina or the number of Kumbhs that we offer is as per our own wishes or desire. We can perform this ritual as many times as we want to. This golden opportunity of getting liberated from our sins in our present birth itself has been granted to us only by our Sadguru’s grace. To get free from the cycle of birth and death and also to attain freedom from the encumberment of all sins the Paapvimoc-hak pradakshina is the easiest and the most beautiful path. The moment we set foot on the soil of the Govidyapeetham, it is bhakti and bhakti alone that engulfs us. It is the love of the Govind that we drink in. This is the place where bhaktas forget their woes, their problems and in fact the world outside only to lose themselves to true joy. The bhaktas of Gopal even forget themselves. The one and only being they are aware of is, Him, His, the Govardhan Giridhari’s presence. The Govidyapeetham is a domain that brings the bhakta close to his God, His Sadguru, His Govind. Besides, he, who steps into these premises with pure bhakti, love, faith and surrender, is sure to hear the sweet melody of the Murlidhar’s flute.
Come, let us all listen to the sweet tunes floating out of His “murli” and receive and be graced with the love of the Murlidhar Gopal, this Govind. Every speck of soil here resonates with the sound of His murli, its music, its
lure; the ambience here is full.... full with the sankeertan of ardent haribhaktas.

‘ Shree Krishna govind hare murari, he naath narayan vasudeva Radhe.......Radhe.........Radhe
