Shree Aniruddha Gurukshetram Seva
Yesterday it was Monday and that too in the holy month of Shraavan. On every Monday, Rudra Seva is
performed at Shree Aniruddha Gurukshetram. Every Shraddhavaan can participate in this Rudra Seva. While this ritual is in progress, apart from the chanting of the other stotraas, the Shree Rudra is chanted 11 times. While the chanting is in progress, every Shraddhavaan can perform the Abhishek of the idol of Shree Dattatreya with milk and participate in the poojan. The idol of Shree Dattatreya which is otherwise situated in the temple (devghar) at Bapu’s (Aniruddhasinh) residence, is brought to Shri Harigurugram every Thursday so as to enable Shraddhavaans to have darshan. After the Upasana is complete, poojan of the idol is performed. Even Sadguru Bapu (Aniruddhasinh) performs poojan of this idol before commencing His discourse.
