Only one who performs the sagun-nirgun seva of the Guru can be called a true disciple !

Paratpar Guru (Dr.) Athavale, who
teaches seekers through practical examples

A simple look at Paratpar Guru (Dr.) Athavale’s life and it will be crystal clear that He is a perfectionist. Everything He does is essentially ideal.

He yearns that seekers follow suit and get moulded in the same pattern, that they study every aspect of seva minutely and perform it to perfection in all respects as expected by God. Hence, for Him, guidance through words is just the beginning; He goes far beyond this and moulds seekers through practical action, and this is just one aspect of His remarkable qualities.

Be it planting trees, preparation of the ground during Dharmajagruti Sabhas, sevas associated with Arts or music-dance … name the field and He simply excels in each. All this proves but one thing – that He is an Incarnation !
Many a time, when we hear the word ‘Guru’, we visualise someone sitting on a pedestal and guiding a whole lot of followers.

On the other hand, Paratpar Guru (Dr.) Athavale personifies ‘Leading from the front’. He participates in every seva with the seekers and guides them on God-realisation through that seva. Blessed are Sanatan’s seekers !

He has even taught seekers aspects such as ‘How to pluck flowers’, ‘How to fold and keep the the doormat aside while sweeping’ etc. These small but precious acts that run into thousands, are deeply engraved in the memory of the seekers. Given ahead are a few selected examples.

We express our infinite gratitude to Him for these teachings !
