1. Seekers will be blessed with the good fortune
of being able to see the birthday celebration of the Guru
‘Seekers have been very fortunate to be able to see the birthday celebration of the Guru. The benefit that Sanatan seekers will get by seeing this will be the same as actually seeing Mahavishnu in Vaikunthlok. Shrimannnarayan is none other than the embodied soul which has incarnated with blessings of 33 crores of Deities, from among living and non-living creation, as the zenith of Spirituality, Paratpar Guru (Dr.) Athavale.’
2.Description of Paratpar Guru (Dr.)
Athavale, a form of Shrimannarayan, by Maharshi Mayan
2A. Paratpar Guru (Dr.) Athavale a form of Shrimannarayan
who despite being a Deity has descended onto the earth in human form
The one with a face like a blossoming lotus, eyes like Shrikrushna, luminous complexion like the radiance of a million suns, who resides in Vaikunth, whose Holy feet are the seat of Final Liberation, is Paratpar Guru (Dr.) Athavale, a form of Shrimannarayan.
2B.Paratpar Guru (Dr.) Athavale, the form of Shrimannarayan
after a vision of whom is obtained the benefit of seeing Mahadev and other deities
The one in whose Holy company you experience Paramanand (highest form of bliss), the one who by merely touching the earth with His feet removes defects in it and the one after seeing whom you get the benefit of seeing Mahadev and other Deities, is Paratpar Guru (Dr.) Athavale, a form of Shrimannarayan.
2C. Paratpar Guru (Dr.) Athavale is a form of
Shrimannarayan to merge into whom even being born on the earth is joy
The one for whom on this earth writing is supreme, whose fame is indescribable and to merge into whom there is joy even in being born on the earth is Paratpar Guru (Dr.) Athavale, a form of Shrimannarayan.
2D. Paratapar Guru (Dr.) Athavale a form of
Shrimannarayan who gives devoted seekers a vision easily
At present the earth has several people who call themselves Incarnations, but He is not an Incarnation. He is not even close to God. The one who Deities, Sages, celestial musicians, messengers of God etc. are eager to catch a glimpse of and who gives devoted seekers a vision easily is Paratpar Guru (Dr.) Athavale a form of Shrimannarayan.

3.Shridevi and Bhudevi residing with Mahavishnu in Vaikunthlok
incarnating on the earth as ‘Kartikputri’ and ‘Uttaraputri’ respectively
Residing with Mahavishnu in Vaikunthlok Shridevi and Bhudevi have assumed birth on the earth as Kartikputri – Sadguru (Mrs.) Anjali Gadgil and Uttaraputri – Sadguru (Mrs.) Binda Singbal. Seekers who have faith in all these three incarnations and who render continuous seva with gratitude will never be deprived of anything, in fact their families will prosper.
4. Jayantavatar has incarnated between Shrikrishna and Kalki
There is a vast difference between an average individual and Deity Vishnu with ten Incarnations taking birth in the womb of the same mother. Maharshi has written thousands of years ago that the Kalki Incarnation will come only after the Jayant Incarnation. So Jayantavatar is the incarnation between Shrikrushna and Kalki.
5. Greatness of the Jayant Incarnation as described by Maharshi Mayan
5A. Jayantavatar is one of the ten Incarnations of Shrivishnu
Jayantavatar is one of the ten Incarnations of Shrivishnu created for protection of the nation and Dharma and for upliftment of seekers.
5B. Vishnu is in other words the Jayantavtar
Maharashi says ‘The one of the nature of Omkar and the one who controls the Mahameru mountain is Vishnu, undoubtedly, the Jayantavatar’
6. Seekers do not be deceived by Shrimannarayan’s simple human form
Seekers are so fortunate to be able to celebrate the birth anniversary of Paratpar Guru (Dr.) Athavale in the form of Shrimannarayan and should accept this as a golden celebration of joy. Do not be deceived by Shrimannarayan’s average human form. The one in this human form is none other than Him, the one wielding a conch, discus and mace in His hands, the Master of a million universes. Seekers will receive blessings during the birthday celebration of the Guru according to their spiritual emotion.’
Maharshi Mayan (through the medium of H.H. (Dr.) Om Ulagnathan (5.5.2018, 9.30 a.m.)

Appeal to readers
Paratpar Guru Dr. Athavale has never proclaimed that ‘I am an Incarnation or my mission of an Incarnation has commenced’. It is the Maharashi nadi astrology which has declared Him as an Incarnation of Shrivishnu. As seekers and the editorial team of Sanatan Prabhat has spiritual emotion towards Maharshi we are uploading this newsitem from this special edition. – Editor
Spiritual experiences given in this newsitem are experienced by seekers based on the norm that ‘there is God where there is spiritual emotion’. So do not expect that all will experience them. – Editor
Sanatan’s ashram at Ramnathi becomes ‘Vaikunthdham on earth’
The ashram decorated with pictures and objects reminding of Shrivishnu
Ramnathi, Ponda, May 7, 2018 (news) – Seekers got the experience of Vaikunth on the earth on the 76th birth anniversary celebrations of Paratpar Guru (Dr.) Athavle. The ashram was enriched with the Vishnu Principle with objects, pictures, different colours and fragrances which symbolise Shrivishnu. The environment in the ashram where Paratpar Guru (Dr.) Athavaleresides is akin to that in the Kshirsagar in Vaikunthdham where Shrivihnu the sustainer of the entire universe resides.
Idols and pictures of the absolute form of Shrivishnu and Sheshashayi were put up on every floor of the ashram. Pictures of conches, discuses, maces and lotuses were put up in the passages and on doors. Seekers in the ashram were engrossed in remembering the revered Paratpar Guru. Seekers were doing their best to please the Guru in their own way by drawing rangoli, decorating with flowers, expressing spiritual emotion etc.
From May 5 to 7, 2018 an exhibition of objects collected by Sadguru (Mrs.) Anjali Gadgil from different places, during her tours, was arranged. These included shaligrams (stones representing the Vishnu Principle) in sattvik forms, different kinds of conches, shells in different shapes and and pearls. On May 7, 2018 the day of the birth celebration pictures of Shrivishnu in ten Incarnations, Holy water from places of pilgrimage etc in addition to photographs of Paratpar Guru (Dr.) Athavale in different postures of spiritual emotion (bhav mudras), belongings of Paratpar Guru since childhood were exhibited. Seeing the exhibition everyday seekers would get immersed in spiritual emotion.
On the 76th birth anniversary of Paratpar Guru (Dr.) Athavale steadiness was observed in the environment as well. Signs of the approaching critical times are visible in foreign countries. It was as if before actually facing the upcoming critical times Shri Gurumauli was giving seekers bliss, peace, steadiness and spiritual prowess.
Prayer from the above photograph
O Paratpar Guru, You are a real ‘Mokshaguru’ who promises to take the entire world to Moksha (Final Liberation). O Gurudev You have made the life-saving path of spiritual practice easy for us, may we remember Your grace when on the path is all we ask of You.
Vaishakh Krushna Paksha 7 is the birth date as per Hindu lunar calendar of Paratpar Guru (Dr.) Athavale inspiration behind the idea of forming a Hindu nation and ShriGuru of Sanatan seekers. With memories of His 75th birthday celebrations still imprinted on the subconscious mind seekers were eager to get a vision of Him on His 76th birth anniversary. They were making efforts to evoke spiritual emotion for the Guru who strives constantly to give them bliss and were eagerly waiting for that bliss endowing day to dawn on May 7,2018. On that day Mother Nature gave up Her summer heat and created a pleasant environment. That morning without any reason seekers were also thinking of Vaikunth region. Some were thinking of Shriguru in the form of Rama and some in the form of Shrikrushna. Sanatan’s Ramnathi ashram the Vaikunth on this earth had embellished its body with many ornaments. The atmosphere in the ashram with music from the Samaveda, movement of seekers was as if Vishnulok had descended onto the earth.
Thus the birth anniversary of Shri Guru was celebrated in an atmosphere of spiritual emotion and devotion and this is an account of that along with photographs. I am bereft of words to express that Divine celebration but am offering with gratitude whatever greatness about the Shriguru that this limited intellect can describe.
A celebration to be remembered for ages…
-Paratpar Guru (Dr.) Athavale was dressed as Shrivishnu as instructed by Maharshi. Seekers were standing on both sides eagerly waiting to welcome Shri Guru. with joy in their eyes. He arrived at the venue in the decorated yellow car formerly used by Him to travel everywhere to propagate Spirituality. Spontaneously their hands were folded to pay Him obeisance. Looking at seekers He too folded His hand in obeisance. All seekers preserved this enticing form of Shri Guru in their minds.
-Shriguru entered the hall looking at the suvasinsis (married women) holding the arti plate in the hand with a look of grace and motherly affection and showering bliss.
-At the venue Sadguru (Mrs.) Anjali Gadgil and Sadguru (Mrs.) Binda Singbal were waiting to welcome Him holding a metal pot (kalash) and arti plate respectively.
-As Mr. Vinayak Shanbag with a spiritual level of 62 % revealed the importance of Paratpar Guru (Dr.) Jayant Athavale in the form of Shrivishnu, He arrived at the venue of the celebration. Paratpar Guru (Dr.) Jayant Athavale gave seekers a vision of Him as Shrivishnu in the reclining posture, a feast to their eyes. Tears were flowing down the cheeks of seekers seeing the Vishnu Principle descend in the gross form that they otherwise experience actually in front of them. Priests from the Sanatan Purohit Pathshala recited the ‘Shrisukta’.
-As the Vishnusahastranam was being recited by the priests five seekers on behalf of all Sanatan seekers offered obeisance in surrender at the Holy feet of Paratpar Guru (Dr.) Athavale.

Blessings from Deity Varun
On May 7, 2018 the fire sacrifice and birthday celebration was completed. Till date after Sanatan Sanstha’s performing any celebration or fire sacrifice under the guidance of Maharshi there has been rainfall to indicate that it has been delivered unto the Holy feet of God. That night Sadguru (Mrs.) Anjali Gadgil expressed her thoughts to a fellow seeker about how till now that had been no rainfall. Within half an hour, at 11.25 pm there was rainfall in the vicinity of the ashram to indicate that the ritual has been completed successfully. Rain which comes otherwise falls everywhere and but that which comes as a blessing from Deity Varun falls only in the region where the ritual is performed.

Spiritual reasons for wearing the attire
of Shrivishnu for my birth anniversary celebrations
‘Since the inception of Sanatan Sanstha, till 2015 time and again seekers would express the desire to celebrate my birthday but I was never interested in gross celebration of such events hence despite their desire I never allowed it. Based on predictions made by different Sages lakhs of years ago, through nadi astrology and guidance given by Them, since 2015 my birthday is being celebrated as a form of Deity Vishnu. This does not match my basic temperament. When contemplating on this I recollected the following points.
1. In Spirituality performing actions by obeying Saints is important. Also in Spirituality others wish is above one’s own wish. So I realised that by obeying Maharshi I will learn something new in Spirituality.
2. Maharshi Adhyatma Vishwavidyalay got an opportunity to research from the spiritual perspective the effects of Saints adorning the attire of Deities on Their own bodies and on the environment, using scientific instruments.
3. Creation, sustenance and dissolution are respectively the functions of Deities Brahma, Vishnu and Shiva. My mission is Maintaining the mode of goodness in Kaliyuga which is fractionally the mission of sustenance of Deity Vishnu. That is the reason the Vishnu Principle is being provided fractionally for that mission. So Maharshi’s referring to me as ‘Vishnu Incarnation’ is with reference to my mission, a fraction of that of Shrivishnu, rather than my physical body.’
