Why the Human Birth - Hemadpant

(Note: This is English translation of my earlier Marathi post titled नरजन्माचें काय कारण?) It was really sad to learn about the demise of Darasinghji. Every Indian heart grieved. But then death does inevitably come to every jeeva does it not? Hemadpant discusses this very fact in the 43rd chapter of the Shreesaisachcharit. Every birth is followed by death. The two are inseparable. Death is a state natural to the jeeva.

DARA SINGH - HEARTFELT TRIBUTE

Dara Singh, who endeared himself to an entire nation for more than half a century, initially as a wrestler par excellence, (who was once crowned Rustam-i-Hind) and then as an actor of substance is no more. He passed into eternity today (12-July-2012) morning.  Dara Singh who was born on 19th November 1928 as Deedar SIngh Randhawa will always be remembered for his realistic and convincing portrayal of Hanuman.

Sadguru's Feet

रात्र होत आली तरी सद्‌गुरु बापूंच (अनिरुध्दसिंह) दर्शन घेणारी गर्दी काही संपत नव्हती. अनेक भक्त सद्‌गुरुत्त्वाच प्रतिक असणार्‍या त्रिविक्रमाचं पूजन करुन दर्शनाला येत होते. अस सर्व सुरु असताना शेवटी आरतीची वेळ झाली. सर्व प्रथम बापूंनी (अनिरुध्दसिंह) त्यांच्या गुरुंची (करवीता गुरु – श्रीगुरुदत्त) आरती केली. या आरतीच्या वेळेस मात्र माझे सद्‌गुरु पूर्णपणे ’भक्ताच्या’ भूमिकेत शिरतात व आरती करताना तेव्हढेच भावविव्हळ होतात. बापूंच्या (अनिरुध्दसिंह) आरतीतील ’आर्तता’ बापूंच्या (अनिरुध्दसिंह) चेहर्‍यावरील भावांवरुन समजून येते.

Wimbledon 2012

Yesterday I had an opportunity to watch Wimbledon Final for a while. It was a superb game between two very much talented players. Federer’s fans were delighted to see how he won his 17th Grand Slam title, the most by any player. He  also regained his ‘World Number 1’ spot and equaled world record of Pete Sampras for holding this spot for 286 weeks. But I was told that the

Sadguru's Feet

We celebrated the Gurupournima yesterday. The darshan of Sadguru Bapu (Aniruddhasinh)  is indeed so gratifying! Blessed with the darshan, the face of every single bhakta was oozing joy. The arrangements on the stage – the depictions of instances highlighting just what it means to repose firm faith at the feet of the Sadguru, what it is to have unconditional trust in Him did I am sure reach out to every

The Eminence and the Glory of the Sadguru

ll Avadhoot Chintan Shreegurudevadatta ll ll Om Namashchandikayaee ll All other gods are illusory, unreal; the Guru alone is the God Eternal. Once you repose your faith in him, he will help you overcome even the pre-destined.                                                                         – Shri Saisaccharit (Chapter 10 Verse 4) The Shreesaisachcharit holds ever so many verses that sing the glories of the Sadguru! But this one has been and will always be close to
