Golden day in the Guru hierarchy of Sanatan
माघ पौर्णिमेच्या शुभदिनी बहरली अनमोल सनातन गुरुपरंपरा ।
सद्गुरु (सौ.) बिंदा सिंगबाळ आणि सद्गुरु (सौ.) अंजली गाडगीळ चालविती पुढे गुरुवारसा ॥
Ramnathi (Goa) – The Guru tradition is an invaluable gift by Bharat to the world. Founder of Sanatan Sanstha Paratpar Guru (Dr.) Athavale created Gurukrupayoga (Path of Guru’s Grace) and provided seekers with a speedy path to spiritual progress. To provide further guidance to seekers on this path and to expand the mission of spread of Spirituality of Paratpar Guru (Dr.) Athavale, on February 19, 2019 on the command of Maharshi Bhrugu Sanatan Sanstha Akhil Bharatiya Dharmaprasarak, Sadguru (Mrs.) Binda Singbal and Sadguru (Mrs.) Anjali Gadgil were declared as ‘spiritual successors’ of Paratpar Guru (Dr.) Athavale.
Through the medium of Mr. Selvamguruji a jeevannadi astrologer from Chennai Maharshi Bhrugu said, “This is the auspicious day for Paratpar Guru (Dr.) Athavale to declare Sadguru (Mrs.) Anjali Gadgil and Sadguru (Mrs.) Binda Singbal as His ‘spiritual successors’. That is precisely why after ritualistic worship of deceased ancestors (pitar) thousand oil lamps have to be lit in the Ramnathi ashram. All three Gurus should come together to light lamps. Then seekers should light a thousand lamps all over the ashram.”
During this function Paratpar Guru (Dr.) Athavale presented a ‘Shrim’ bijamantra pendant to both Sadgurus. A deepdarshan festival was celebrated at Sanatan’s Ramnathi ashram in Goa.
सनातन परिवार आनंदे शहारला । कृतार्थ अन् कृतज्ञ झाला । सद्गुरु चालवती परात्पर गुरूंचा वारसा । बहरली सनातन गुरुपरंपरा ॥
At Sanatan’s Ramnathi ashram in Goa was held
an immemorable event of the Guru transferring His energy
‘which has neither happened in the past nor will happen in the future’ !
Ramnathi (Goa) – Magh Pournima was a golden day for seekers of Sanatan. For seekers founder of Sanatan Sanstha Paratpar Guru (Dr.) Athavale is everything but their Sadgurus and Saints are no less respectable and worshippable for them. Besides Sadguru (Mrs.) Binda Singbal and Sadguru (Mrs.) Anjali Gadgil who have merged into the Guru are showering seekers from all over their motherly love just like Gurudev and described by Maharshi as ‘the eyes of Paratpar Guru (Dr.) Athavale’ are as worshippable to seekers as Him. Paratpar Guru (Dr.) Athavale has touched every living and non-living object in contact with Him with the fictional stone (paris is an imaginary stone which when it touches something turns it into gold) but both the Sadgurus who were proclaimed as His spiritual successors on February 19, 2019 (Magh Pournima) at the advice of Maharshi Bhrugu, have already converted the wealth that the Guru has bestowed upon them into gold. At that moment every seeker was overwhelmed thinking that Maharshi Bhrugu has perceived the spiritual emotion within him. Unconsciously all folded their hands in obeisance, cool tears ran down their cheeks consecrating the Holy feet of the triad of Gurus with them. It is due to the immeasurable grace of Shri Guru that even in this Kaliyug this immortal Guru-disciple union can be experienced. This has filled every embodied soul with contentment and gratitude. As told by Maharshi Bhrugu through the medium of Bhrugu Nadi astrologer from Chennai Mr. Selvam Guruji, on February 19, 2019 this function was held at Sanatan’s ashram in Ramnathi Goa as it is Vaikunth (abode of Shrivishnu) on the earth.
साईचरणगंगेसी नित्य भेटे नर्मदा ।
कलियुगी हा संगम जो । अमर हा सदा ॥
Mission of Paratpar Guru (Dr.) Athavale attains Absoluteness (Purnatva)
Paratpar Guru (Dr.) Athavale presents both
Sadgurus gold pendants with the Shrim bijamantra etched on them
Proclamation of ‘spiritual successors’ was a golden moment in the history of Sanatan Sanstha. In the nadi astrology prediction Maharshi Bhrugu has stated that on this day the Guru should present both Sadgurus (Matajis) with one gold pendant each with ‘Shrim’ etched on it. Despite severe physical distress Paratpar Guru (Dr.) Athavale attended the ceremony. He gave both Sadgurus spiritual energy to continue the mission. Paratpar Guru (Dr.) Athavale arrived on the dais of the ceremony amidst recitation of Holy verses (shlokas) chanted by priest seeker Mr. Damodar Vazheguruji, with a spiritual level of 61 %, with a spiritual emotion of surrender. In an atmosphere charged with intense spiritual emotion Paratpar Guru (Dr.) Athavale gifted both Sadgurus the Shrim bijamantra pendant which they wore around their necks. At that time Mr. Damodar Vazheguruji recited the Shri Mahalakshmi ashtak with spiritual emotion. On several occasions Maharshi has stated how Sadguru (Mrs.) Binda Singbal and Sadguru (Mrs.) Anjali Gadgil are Deity Mahalakshmi personified. All seekers experienced that by gifting the Sadgurus the Shrim pendants Paratpar Guru (Dr.) Athavale has activated the Shri Mahalakshmi Principle within them.
‘On Magh Pournima (full moon of the Hindu lunar month of Magh), that is 19.2.2019 Paratpar Guru (Dr.) Athavale when gifting both Sadgurus, Sadguru (Mrs.) Binda Singbal and Sadguru (Mrs.) Anjali Gadgil) a Shrim gold pendant will transfer all His energy to them. At that moment the Guru’s mission will attain Absoluteness. The Bliss (Anand) derived from Absoluteness is unparalleled.’
Maharshi Bhrugu (through the medium of Mr. Selvam Guruji. 20.2.2019, 11 a.m.)
(Truly so I experienced Bliss from Absoluteness at that moment.- Dr. Athavale (19.2.2019))
Deepadarshan ceremony with a thousand oil
lamps representing energy in the form of light, given to seekers
‘This day will be like the sun enlightening the moon with its light,’ saying thus Maharshi Bhrugu advised that the ceremony of lighting a thousand lamps be celebrated in the ashram. The sun of Dharma in the form of the Guru lights up the life of a seeker. The radiance of grace of the Guru enlightens him with energy for spiritual practice. This ceremony is one giving this spiritual experience. Amidst the mantra recitation done by priest seeker Mr. Damodar Vazheguruji Paratpar Guru (Dr.) Athavale lit the oil lamps in the hands of Sadguru (Mrs.) Binda Singbal and Sadguru (Mrs.) Anjali Gadgil who in turn lit the lamps of married women (suvasinis) Mrs. Jyoti Dhavlikar with a spiritual level of 66% and Mrs. Lata Deepak Dhavlikar with a spiritual level of 63%, respectively. Thereafter they lit lamps of other seekers with theirs and in all 2000 oil lamps were lit in the ashram to celebrate the festival of lights. Through the medium of these lamps (sahastra deepadarshan vidhi) all seekers received energy in the form of light to take the Guru’s mission to Absoluteness.
Blessings of Saint Bhaktaraj Maharaj
for Sanatan’s blossoming Guru hierarchy
In the meditation room at the Ramnathi ashram the padukas (Holy wooden footwear) of Paratpar Guru (Dr.) Athavale were installed just below the photograph of His Guru, Saint Bhaktaraj Maharaj, which appears alive.
