12 Shree Baanlinga and 3 Shaaligraam
On Friday, 31st August 2012, late evening at 8.45 PM, Bapu (Aniruddhasinh) arrived at Shree Aniruddha Gurukshetram. He had carried with Him, 12 Shree Baanlinga made of crystal and representative of the 12 Jyotirlinga. He kept these in a platter (taamhan) which He placed on the Dharmaasan. One of these Baanlinga, of a colour different from the others, is also larger in size compared to them. Also, it bears a mark exactly like the one to be seen on the Shree Mahadurgeshwar.

In another platter (taamhan), Bapu then kept three of the 108 shaaligraam to which poojan had been offered during the Shree Jagannath Utsav (2002-2003). Since then, all of these 108 Shaaligraam had been kept at Govidyapeetham. It was a few days ago that they were brought to Shree Aniruddha Gurukshetram. Here, the tulsi leaves are offered to the shaaligraam as part of the regular poojan. .

Bapu (Aniruddhasinh) offered the tulsi leaves to the Shaaligraam and the Bel (Wood Apple) leaves to the 12 Shree Baanlinga as part of the poojan. Following the poojan, Bapu recited along with all the shraddhavaan Bapu Bhaktas present, the Shree Mahadurgeshwar jap – “Om Namo Bhagavate Shreemahadurgeshvaraaya Namah ll”.
