From the Editor’s Desk

Hari Om Friend,


The onset of the monsoon brings with it a unique phenomenon; the divine fragrance emanating as soon as the first raindrops fall on the Mother Earth. It also brings to mind the images of lush green fields, flowing rivers and the ever enchanting waterfalls. Monsoons also bring with it relief from the scorching summer heat. Most importantly, it is a lifeline for our farmers. It’s been quite sometime since we have seen smiles on the faces of our farmers. Let’s pray that this year’s monsoon does exactly that.

Clothing is one of the three basic necessities; the other two being food and shelter. There are still many of our brethren living in the poverty stricken rural areas who cannot afford adequate clothing to cover their bodies with dignity. The ‘OLD is GOLD’ project under the aegis of Shree Aniruddha Upasana Foundation addresses this vexed matter. In fact, this issue covers in some detail how this project is executed. The OLD is GOLD project, is one of the ’13 Point Programme’ undertaken with the inspiration and guidance of Sadguru Aniruddha Bapu.

Old is Gold (June te Sone Yojana)

In most of the backward villages, it is observed that parents are reluctant to send their children to school and instead prefer taking them to fields, as every hand that toils means income for the household. This overbearing constraint of meeting the present basic needs, deprives the children of much needed education which, in today’s times, provides only hope for a better and secure future. This challenging situation needed to be addressed in a manner where parents were motivated and encouraged to send their children to school. “We need to motivate these children and even their parents. We have, in fact, done it and with success”, says Sadguru Shree Aniruddha Bapu with deep love and concern in his heart.

Well aware of the hardships of our rural brethren the ‘Old is Gold’ project translates this care and concern into effective execution. Old or surplus articles, in usable condition are donated by the volunteers and devotees to the Foundation. These (clothes & utensils) are then distributed amongst parents of children whose attendance record is upto the mark, as an incentive to keep sending their children to school. Similarly, the children too are gifted with toys and clothes to make them want to attend school.

The Foundation is very particular about the quality of the ‘old articles’ that are received by way of donation. Torn clothes are not accepted. Also, broken toys or battery operated toys are not accepted.

‘Old assumes the worth of gold only if put to appropriate use’ says Sadguru Shree Aniruddha Bapu.

During the annually held Kolhapur Medical & Health Care Camp, the clothes so collected are distributed amongst the villagers on the basis of the survey conducted by the volunteers of each and every household. The clothes and utensils collected are also distributed amongst the people affected by natural calamities and disasters.

During the month

Shree Guru Charan Maas: Recitation of Shree Hanuman Chalisa

Alpha to Omega Newsletter - July 2016

In the year 1997 on the day of the Ashwattha Maruti Poojan, Bapu told us to recite the Hanuman Chalisa 108 times in the period of 24 hours (stretching one sunrise to the next) during the month spanning the Vata Pournima (Jyeshtha Pournima) to the Guru Pournima (Ashadh Pournima). The recitation of the Hanuman Chalisa 108 times during this period wards off bad vibrations for a period of a whole year from the day of the recitation. The recitation enhances faith, endurance and confidence. In the discourse of Thursday 16th July 2011, Bapu gave this month the name of ‘Shree Guru Charan Maas’ or the ‘Man Sudhaar Maas’. Also, the recitation of Hanuman Chalisa during this period helps to accomplish things with a fraction of the energy that would otherwise have been required to accomplish the task. (E.g. Tasks that require 1 kg of energy may be accomplished with 100 mg of energy).

It is not mandatory to recite the Hanuman Chalisa 108 times in one single sitting or at a stretch. All we have to keep in mind is that it has to be recited 108 times during the twenty-four hours spanning one sun rise to the following one. The Hanuman Chalisa may be recited on as many days and as many times as is maximum possible during this month. The only rule we need to observe is that every recitation needs to be done with love and bhakti. The direction we face when we recite, the time, fasts, menstrual period, mourning, nothing at all stands in the way of the recitation. Besides, the recitation may be done at any place, just anywhere at all – at home, in the temple or in the forest, for that matter.

The Hanuman Chalisa, when recited with love and faith in the heart, helps release ourselves from the clutches of evil.

The Hanuman Chalisa, a divine stotra, is in fact an earnest and loving request that Shree Hanumanta dwell in our heart along with Shreeram, Laxman and Seeta.
