Power Grid Failure & Its Social Implications

By now everyone of us must have come to know about the collapse of eastern, northeastern and northern electricity grids that knocked out power in 20 of 29 states and affected some 620 million Indians (around half of India’s population and 9% of the world’s population) causing havoc at train stations, airports, hospitals and on roads. For instance, Delhi Metro had to evacuate passengers from trains that stopped mid-journey. The

Aarti (आरती)

Dear Friends, Every night, before retiring for the day, we all sit together and say our prayers, one of which is the Devi Aparadhakshamapan Stotra. Yesterday night, after we had finished saying our prayers, Bapu (Aniruddhasinh), all of a sudden asked Suchit Dada to chant aartis of Sainath. Dada then sang the Kaakad Aarti, and also Adkar’s aarti on Sainath which is part of Madhyaan aarti, and already available in Dada’s

Bapu (Aniruddhasinh) - The True Friend

It has been sixteen years since Bapu (Aniruddhasinh) formally commenced his mission. The seeds sown at that time have blossomed into a huge huge banyan tree that provides shade, shelter and support to millions of Shraddhavaans.At that time there were just a handful of Shraddhavaans who chose the path shown by Bapu (Aniruddhasinh). One such family that joined Bapu was of Shri. Padmakar Chitre and his wife Smt. Sunita Chitre, along with his younger

Olympics 2012

The opening ceremony for the 30th Olympic (Olympics 2012) have begun just now at London. I am sure millions of people must be watching the same across the globe & it will be a treat to watch them. Let The games Begin!!!!! India’s greatest successes at the Olympics have come in men’s hockey. India won every men’s Hockey title from 1928 to 1956 but thereafter our performances have deteriorated for

Shravana Bhakti

Dear Friends, In my previous post on Narration of Experiences, I had dwelt upon the importance of Shravana Bhakti, i.e. bhakti in the form of listening to the glories of the Sadguru and why we should strive to watch and listen atleast one anubhav kathan per day. On last Thursday Bapu (Aniruddhasinh) had, during His discourse, asked us to chant the Gurukshetram Mantra as many times as possible in this holy month of Shraavan. He had

My blogpost of 17th July 2012 about the book that Bapu (Aniruddhasinh) gifted me, mentioned the article ‘Financial Terrorism’ written by Bapu (Aniruddhasinh) for the Marathi weekly, ‘Lokaprabha’ (issue dated 22nd August 2003). A comment from one of my friends includes a request to make the article available. So here is the English translation of the article:  [divider] In the Marathi folklore there is a popular rhyme (somewhat on the lines of a limerick),

Sadguru Bapu Giving Darshan at Shri Harigurugram

Since the past few weeks, on each Saturday at 7.30 p.m. office members, including the two CEOs and deputy CEO assemble on the 5th floor of Happy Home for Anubhav Kathan. I am personally present along with Swapnilsinh and Paurassinh. The Anubhav Kathan, which usually lasts for an hour or so, is a combination of live narration by a Shraddhavaan and viewing of Anubhav Kathans that have already been recorded

Discussion Forum

In the inaugural post I had mentioned about GURUPOURNIMA and how I got the golden opportunity to perform the PADYA PUJAN of Sadguru Bapu. In that post I had quoted my most loving verses from Shri Saisachharita. In subsequent post I had discussed how Shri Saisacharita has greatly influenced my life. Reading these posts, many of the readers through their comments have suggested me to start a DISCUSSION FORUM on

The Shree Ashwattha Maruti Poojan (Hanuman Poojan)

Idol of Ashwattha Maruti Carved by Bapu   “O Subhata (Shreehanumanta – the supreme, the ultimate bhakta) lead me on the path of bhakti, show me the way to the bhagavanta. It is from You, that I want to learn bhakti” says Sant Tukaram in one of his compositions. Bapu (Aniruddhasinh) too has said time and again that it is guided by Hanumanta that every bhakta takes his first step or in

Padukas of Shree Nrusinh Saraswati (Lord Dattatreya) at Home of Bapu Yesterday we have seen the importance of chanting Ghorakashtoddharan Stotra in the month of Shraavan. In Bapu’s (Aniruddhasinh) words the Yajna consists chanting as much as possible of our favourite among the names of the God, as also recalling to our mind as mush as possible all the attributes of God. And what is offering in this Yajna? It is the lack of bhakti (abhakti),

In the month of Shraavan, Bapu (Aniruddhasinh) expects all his Shraddhavan friends to chant the’ Ghorkashtodharan Stotra” regularly. The importance of chanting the said stotra has been described by Bapu (Aniruddhasinh) in his discourses at Shriharigurugram. As explained by Bapu (Aniruddhasinh) the practical of Ghorkashtodharan Stotra is Aniruddha’s Academy of Disaster Management; a video clip is enclosed herewith, which is self-explanatory.  From the year 2003, Sadguru Shree Aniruddha Upasana Trust arranges Ghorkashtodharan Stotra Pathan (Chanting) for

Romancing the Balance Sheet

Last Saturday Bapu (Aniruddhasinh) had been to “Crossword” the one at Kemp’s Corner as it is Bapu’s (Aniruddhasinh)  favourite book shop. Bapu (Aniruddhasinh) loves reading and he expects his Shraddhavan friends to devote at least some time of the day for reading. He always emphasizes that reading makes a person versatile and also never feels lonely in life. Recently he visited Nerurkar’s Ideal Book Store in Dadar and purchased books on a variety of subjects
