Narration of Personal Experience at Shree Harigurugram

ll Hari Om ll At Shree Harigurugram, last Thursday we witnessed videos of blessed moments in the lives of 3 bhaktas – Shraddhavan Girishsinh Karulkar from Pune, Shraddhavan Amitsinh Singhal and Shraddhavan Sonchoriveera Ghosh originally from Kolkota but settled in Juinagar, Mumbai. All three narrations highlighted totally different dimensions each and yet converged to indicate one common fact to the Shraddhavaan viz. Bapu’s leela – unfathomable, amazing and of course

हेमाडपंतांची व यवनाची भेट (Hemadpant’s tryst with Mohammedan gentleman)

हा प्रसंग हेमाडपंताच्या आयुष्याला वळण देणारा आहे. हेमाडपंतांनी साईनाथांना बघितलेलं ही नाही, फोटो ही पाहिलेला नाही. उलट काकासाहेब दिक्षीतांनी त्यांना सांगितल्यानंतरही शिर्डीला जायचा विचार हेमाडपंत सोडून देतात. कारण मनात प्रश्‍न उद्‍भवलेला असतो की ’सद्‍गुरूचा उपयोग काय?’ पण त्यानंतर नानासाहेब चांदोरकरांच्या विनंतीनंतर हेमाडपंत शिर्डीस जायला निघतात. हेमाडपंतांची शिर्डीला जाणारी गाडी सुटू शकते हे जाणून, तसेच साईनाथ त्यांच्या भक्ताचा म्हणजेच नानासाहेब चांदोरकरांचा शब्द राखण्यासाठी आणि सद्‍गुरुभक्ति मार्गावर येऊ इच्छिणार्‍यासाठी साईनाथ स्वत: यवनाच्या

My Visit to Sangli

I am just back from a whirlwind tour of centres in Sangli and the adjoining regions. The visit was essentially a precursor to Bapu’s visit to Sangli scheduled for April 2013, and intended of course to take stock of the level of preparedness of our various upasana centres which are coming together to organize yet another historic event but also along side to understand their problems and concerns, if any and to fine tune their focus on the preparations if required.

The Maghi Ganapati Janmotsav 2013

As I am writing this post from Shri Harigurugram, the sweet chants of ‘Om Gam Ganapatayay Namah’ are softly ringing in my ears. Yesterday and the day before ‘The Maaghi Ganapati Janmotsav’ was celebrated. The Maaghi Ganapati Janmotsav is being celebrated since the year 2009. The celebrations are held on 2 days. The first day, entry to the function is by invitation only. Thereafter, on the next following Thursday, It is celebrated at Shri Harigurugram where all Shraddhavans can attend. Usually during the intervening period, the idols of Ashtavinayak are kept at the Link Apartments, where poojan is performed every day.

Aatmabal Programme 2013

Last night the Aatmabal Programme 2013 came to an end. Words fail me in trying to describe how it was. At the moment, it is beyond any adjectives. All that I can say for myself and on behalf of all those who were present at Shri Harigurugram yesterday is Ambadnya.

No praise would be too high for our dear Nandai, who planned things to the last detail. Bringing together a group of Shraddhavan ladies, many of them elderly, and most of them shy and introverted, and transforming them into achievers and winners, in a matter of just six months, is in itself a great achievement. Every single item that was presented left an indelible mark on the mind. I can say with absolute certainty that there wasn’t a single eye that did not shed tears while watching the heart-rending performances put up.

Hari Om Dear Friends, It just occurred to me that today I should share a few thoughts with you on Gunasankirtan (narration in praise of the attributes of the Sadguru). As I reflect back over the Gunasankirtan activities that we have undertaken over the past 2-3 years with a renewed focus, I can see before my eyes how it has translated into so many important milestones. It is necessary to
