1. Maharshi etc. introducing the incarnate
mission of Paratpar Guru (Dr.) Athavale to the world
It is impossible for society, seekers and disciples to recognise Shri Guru. To recognise an incarnate being that continues the mission in Shri Guru form is impossible ! When this be so, they themselves bestow disciples with spiritual experiences of their incarnate nature and introduce themselves to the seekers and society.
Saints, Maharshis, Saptarshis etc. contribute their might directly or indirectly to introduce the mission of the Incarnation of Shri Vishnu to their disciples and the human race. Eminent Saints such as Gurudev Dr. Kateswamiji, H.H. Yogatadnya Dadaji Vaishampayan, H.H. Karve Guruji, H.H. Aba Upadhye are introducing the incarnate mission of Paratpar Guru (Dr.) Athavale to seekers and society. Similarly, Maharshi through H.H. OmUlaganathan (medium of Saptarshi Jivanadi), through Shri. Vishal Sharma and Pandit Laldev Shastri (from the lineage of Bhrugu and mediums of Bhrugu Samhita), and others from the lineage of Maharshi through various Nadi Samhitas are introducing His incarnate mission and the concept of ‘Hindu Nation’ to the world.
2. In the early days of my spiritual practice,
treating relatives who were following Karmakanda as inferior beings
When I started on my spiritual practice, I realised the importance of Sanatan’s mission. I realised that Sanatan Sanstha is very different from other organisations. I also had the spiritual experience that Paratpar Guru (Dr.) Athavale is different from other Saints; He is an Incarnate being. Since I had just begun, my mind and cons-cious were impure. Then, I treated my family members and relatives who were following Karmakanda (Spiritual practice of rites, rituals and observances performed at the physical level) as inferior.
Although, my feelings about Shri Guru and Sanatan Sanstha were appropriate, I failed to realise that considering others to be inferior was a manifestation of my ego. After a few years, Paratpar Guru (Dr.) Athavale advised seekers to undergo the personality defects removal (PDR) and ego removal processes. Later, in a satsang, I was asked, “Do you consider other seekers or relatives to be different from you ? Do you feel that the spiritual practice you perform is superior and those of others is inferior ?” This question made me introspect. I became aware of my ego. Earlier, I had egoistic thoughts such as – ‘My relatives and others in the society do not realise the mission of Sanatan Sanstha. They cannot comprehend the greatness of Paratpar Guru (Dr.) Athavale. They have no faith in Him’.
I realised that the spiritual experience about Paratpar Guru (Dr.) Athavale in the early stages of my spiritual practice created a subtle ego in me – ‘I have realised that He is an incarnate being’.
3. After Paratpar Guru (Dr.) Athavale’s mission increased manifold,
He gave me the spiritual experience that the disciple or seeker cannot recognise the Guru, nor can they keep pace with His mission
With time, Paratpar Guru (Dr.) Athavale’s mission began to spread quickly in various fields, akin to blooming of a lotus. Many seekers including me found it difficult to keep up the pace. It was like experiencing what H.H. Bhaktaraj Maharaj would often say, ‘What the Guru has offered (from His wealth of Knowledge) is infinitesimal, yet the disciple says enough, enough’. I realised that my Guru is an incarnate being, the next stage of His mission as advised by Maharshis has started and no one will be able to keep pace with His mission.
This made me realise that I had failed to understand my Guru even fractionally; however, this realisation was due to His great Priti (Spiritual love devoid of expectations), compassion, mercy and grace on seekers. It pierced the egoistic thoughts and sanskars (Subconscious impressions) that I had understood Him and I am capable of carrying out His mission. Then efforts to eliminate ego & develop an attitude of surrender started in the true sense.
4. Commencement of accusations against Sanatan, Sanatan’s mission increasing manifold while refuting them and perceiving
that more Shri Guru gets introduced, more the seekers will be able to understand Him
Over time, the Police, administration, politicians and rulers started hurling accusations at Sanatan. Great efforts to eliminate Sanatan Sanstha started (and they are continuing). Sanatan’s mission increased manifold in refuting these allegations. This is a unique phenomenon. Today, the society believes that in Sanatan they have someone to fall back on, and this in itself is a proof of His incarnate mission.
This made me realise that it is impossible to understand even a particle of dust under His feet. Hence, more the introduction to Shri Guru, more will be the extent to which seekers will understand Him. As a result, my ego started dissolving that I have understood Him. Later, seekers were advised to perform various rituals of Karmakanda as required and instructed by Maharshi. As a result, I also developed a liking for rituals. While working for the unity of Hindus, I started liking the seekers of other sects and activists of other devout Hindu organisations. This was the unique boundless grace of Paratpar Guru (Dr.) Athavale.
5. Even time is spellbound when
Maharshi narrates the incarnate mission of Paratpar Guru (Dr.) Athavale
Since we seekers were lacking in recognis ing Paratpar Guru (Dr.) Athavale, Brahmarshi and Maharshi had to take the lead in introducing Him. They have to narrate the expanse of His incarnate mission to us. It speaks volumes about His Priti, compassion and mercy on seekers that when Maharshi narrates His incarnate mission through the medium of Nadi-readings, not just seekers but even time is spell-bound and everyone forgets their body awareness.
He has given seekers the spiritual experience of how insatiable is our need to listen about our dear one (Him). When seekers fail to recognise (the greatness of) our Guru, a subtle need for someone to narrate His greatness is felt constantly. Seekers too develop an intense yearning to pass on what they have learnt through such narrations. Paratpar Guru (Dr.) Athavale has created this bhav-bhakti in us. This is His boundless compassion and grace on seekers. For this, whatever be the gratitude expressed unto His Holy feet, it will not be enough !
6. Every word of Paratpar Guru (Dr.) Athavale, His writings on
the Nation and Dharma encompass the universal mind and universal intellect
While I was in Jaipur, one person narrated this incident – “I showed a picture of Shri Durgadevi made by Sanatan to Shri. Sukhpalji Maharaj. He perceived then that Shri Durgadevi’s Sudarshanchakra was active, and through it, any danger likely to affect seekers in a radius of 42 kms. would be eliminated”. Then, I realised that there was one personality who could recognise our Guru’s miss-ion, and felt like meeting him. I felt that he would be a great Saint and he must have received his Guru’s grace. I went to see him with the intention to learn about the miss-ion of Paratpar Guru (Dr.) Athavale. Most aspects he narrated were the same as those already told by Paratpar Guru (Dr.) Athavale. Thus, it was perceived that every word of Paratpar Guru (Dr.) Athavale, His writings on the Nation and Dharma encompass the universal mind and intellect.
7. Meeting Maharaj was a spiritual experience of
the nature of psychological and intellectual process of Dharmakranti
Due to the resolve and existence of Paratpar Guru (Dr.) Athavale, His ideas initially enter Chidakash (Void of the mind) from the universal mind and universal intellect. Later, these thoughts spread in Chidakash of some evolved Saint or Guru, disciple, seeker and the society. It is only after this, that spiritual revolution takes place in the true sense through Incarnations. I actually experienced this process. Upon meeting Maharaj, I had the spirit-ual experience of how the psycho-logical and intellectual processes of Dharmakranti (Revolution of Dharma) take place through the existence and resolve of Paratpar Guru (Dr.) Athavale.
8. Maharaj had no knowledge of Sanatan and Paratpar Guru (Dr.) Athavale; yet, he narrated all the aspects normally told by Paratpar Guru (Dr.) Athavale
The greatness of a disciple is worth listening when narrated by Shri Guru, just as Maharshi and Paratpar Guru (Dr.) Athavale talk about Sadguru (Mrs.) Binda Singbal and Sadguru (Mrs.) Anjali Gadgil. The greatness of our Guru is worth listening when narrated by Saints of other sects or Paths, seekers practicing Spirituality in a different Path or the society. When I met Maharaj in Nasirabad, he had no knowledge about Sanatan and Paratpar Guru (Dr.) Athavale. The aspects he narrated about Paratpar Guru (Dr.) Athavale, Ashrams of Sanatan and seekers were the glorification of incarnate mission of Paratpar Guru (Dr.) Athavale. The aspects which Paratpar Guru (Dr.) Athavale narrates to us are also narrated by Him through Maharshi, H.H. Aba Upadhye, H.H. Karve Guruji etc. He narrated the same through Maharaj. The body, speech and form were that of Maharaj; however, the experience was very much that of Paratpar Guru (Dr.) Athavale. We could experience that Paratpar Guru (Dr.) Athavale’s Principle is active in the entire samashti through word, touch, form, taste, fragrance.
