Discourse by Param Poojya Aniruddha Bapu on 8th October 2009

On the Thursday, 8th October 2009, Param Poojya Aniruddha Bapu delivered His discourse as usual again at New English High School grounds at Bandra East, Mumbai.

To every body’s surprise P. P. Aniruddha Bapu announced a completely novel, beautiful and a changed program schedule of all the upasanas that are conducted on all Thursdays. The implementation of this program has started from Thursday, 5th November 2009.

P. P. Bapu further specified the entire changed itenary of Upasanas on Thursdays as follows:


>>> Upasana would start exactly at 7 : 00 pm.

>>> As earlier, the two Beej (Basis) Mantras of Aniruddha Upasana Trust i.e. “Om Krupasindhu Shri Sai Nathaya Namah” & “Om Abhayadata Shri Swami Samarthaya Namah” would be chanted as usual for 24 times and 14 times respectively at the very start of the Upasana.

>>> Instead of Hanuman Kavach (that used to be recited so far) another Mantra of Lord Hanumant “Om Shri Ramadootaya, Hanumantaya, Mahapranaya, Mahabalaya Namo Namah” would be chanted.

>>> Aradhana Jyoti 14 : would also be chanted during Upasana:
ll Om Namo Hanumate Rudravataraya Par-Yantra-Mantra-Tratak-Nashakaya Sarva-jwar-cchedakaya Sarva-vyadhi-nikruntakaya Sarva-bhaya-prashamanaya Sarva-dushtamukh-stambhanaya Sarva-karyasiddhi-pradaya Ramdootaya Swaha ll

>>> Datta-Stavan Stotra would also be chanted. (The hard copy of the same would be available for free for all the devotees in Shri Kshetra Aniruddha Gurukshetram).

>>> All these recitations would last for about 20 - 22 minutes.

>>> Marathi Pravachan (Discourse) on Vishnu Sahastranaam would start at sharp 7 : 20 pm

>>> Gajars would start at 8 : 15 pm and end at 8 : 40 pm

>>> Aarti (" Aarti Saibaba ...") would start at 8 : 45 pm.

>>> Darshan would start at 9 : 05 pm and continue till 10 : 15 pm

>>> Hindi Pravachan on Shri Sai Sat Charitra would start at 10 : 20 pm. (Every Thursday Bapu would speak on one individual Aadhyay (chapter) of Shir Sai Sat Charitra).

>>> Finally the program would end with Aarti ("Om Sai Shri Sai Jai Jai Sairam ...").

>>> The newly inaugurated Trivikram would be displayed for darshan in the basement area of Hari Guru Gram during rains and on ground at other times. This Trivikram would be the Guna-pratik (Symbol of Character), Samarthya-pratik (Symbol of Strength), Aadhyatma-pratik (Symbol of Sprituality) of Aniruddha Upasana Trust as its Drushya-pratik (Visual Symbol) is Flag and Dhwani-pratik (Vocal Symbol) is "Hari Om". This would rest at Shri Kshetra Aniruddha Gurukshetram for other times.

>>> Sukh Savarni would be held in front of this Trivikram. The poojan and event would be carried by Param Poojya Nandai or Param Poojya Suchitdada or Param Poojya Samirdada or Respected Swapnilsinh or Respected Paurassinh. If Param Poojya Bapu is travelling on any particular Thursday then Sukh Savarni won't be conducted. Portrait of Ek Mukhi (one faced) Lord Dattatrey would be kept behind Trivikram during Sukh Savarni. One can demand fulfillment of his/ her wish (which is pure in its form and concept), one can confess, one can decide on any particular topic or action he has to take during this ritual.


>>> From now on at whichever venue, Thursday's Pravachan and Upasanas would be carried, would be referred as Hari Guru Gram. (So in the current scenario New English School in Bandra (East) where these activities are carried would be referred as Hari Guru Gram).
*** No Shraddhavan should refer it as Pravachan Sthal (Venue) or New English High School but should be referred only as Hari Guru Gram ***

>>> Hari Guru Gram would be from now on considered at par with other Upasana Centres across the globe.

>>> P. P. Samirdada and Respected Swapnilsinh would function as Pramukh Sevaks (Chief Volunteer) for this Centre.

>>> The Karyakarini (Managing Committee) of this Centre would include the two Chief Executive Officers of the Trust along with the Pramukh Sevaks. (Currently Sunilsinh Mantri and Maheshsinh Zantye).

>>> Thursday's Upasana would be little different from Upasana's conducted on local centre's on Saturday's but over and above would have a structure similar as Saturday's upasanas.

>>> Volunteers will have to mark their Sign-in and Sign-out timings compulsorily while entering the Hari Guru Gram and also while leaving them.

>>> In case some volunteer has to leave Upasana in middle, he /she will have to take necessary permission from his / her Seva Coordinator.

>>> If any of the volunteers would not be in position to attend Upasana on 3 consecutive Thursday's then they will have to inform in writing about the same to their respective Seva Coordinator preferably in advance. (This letter can be given even after one has rejoined the seva but couldn't give it before time because of some unscheduled reason).

>>> If any volunteer out of no genuine reason does not attend Upasana for continuous 3 Thursdays then his batch will be suspended.

>>> Arrangement would be made for Volunteers to take Paddya (Feet) Sparsha of Sadguru. (Arrangement for making Paddya (Feet) Sparsha of Sadguru available for bhaktas would be soon be unveiled.

>>> Soon structure of Upasana conducted on Saturday's at local Upasana Centres would also undergo a change. Bapu promised bhaktas that He would reintroduce what they have been missing in the last changed upasana. He would give them what they like and what they want.

>>> CD of Thursday's discourse by Bapu would be played on all the Upasana Centres on Saturdays.

>>> Bapu also declared that Trust is busy rolling out films on Life and Works of Great Saints viz., Meenavahini, Chaubal Ajoba, Sadhanatai, etc.


While describing the inclusion of “Om Shri Ramadootaya Hanumantaya ..." mantra P. P. Bapu explained that in His complete life He has never searched for Lord Hanumant outside, as He felt His presence inside Him. Incidentally this is the favourite mantra of P. P. Bapu’s human mentor (Sadguru) Shri. Gopinath Shastri-Padhye. Further the icing on cake is that, this mantra was being continuously chanted during P. P. Bapu’s birth by His grandmother. Also this mantra is impregnated and imparts all the 8 purusharthas described by P. P. Bapu to the recitor. This mantra is also filled with complete surrender (sampoorna sharanya) towards Sadguru. This mantra’s order of composition is exactly similar to the order in which one receives blessings (krupa) from the Lord. The entire journey of an individual is imbibed in this mantra. Bapu said that this mantra is a side-effectless medicine.

Speaking more about Lord Hanumant, Bapu further explained importance of Ramdoot (Representative of Lord Ram) i. e. Lord Hanumant. He said that one experiences Trupti (satisfaction) in his life only because of this Ramdoot. Bapu further examplied how Lord Hanumant comes to our help and how we should notice His arrival. Whenever one suddenly remembers some forgotten answer while writing some examination it should be immediately recognised that Lord Parmatma has sent His Ramdoot, Lord Hanumant for help our help. Similarly whenever someone suddenly applies brakes which actual averts an accident then this also should be taken as a sign of Ramdoot's arrival. Person's quick-wittedness and street-smartness is also because of Lord Hanumant.

While describing the inclusion of Dattastavan Stotra Bapu narrated the story of how the mantra evolved. While Lord Nrusinh Saraswati was staying with Lord Dattatrey He used to chat with Him many a times at night. One day Lord Nrusinh said to Lord Dattatrey that the goal of His life was coming to an end and hence before returning in His original form He wanted to build kavach (protective armour) of His children (devotees). This routine was observed for continuous 29 days. Finally Lord Dattatrey kept His hand on Lord Nrusinh and recited a mantra. This mantra is referred as Dattastavan Stotra. Bapu while further explaining importance of this stotra said that none of the holy recitations start with words bhoot, pisach but this stotra does start with these word. This mantra actually imparts power to fight these unholy powers. Bapu also explained a story of Lord Dattatrey and Sahastrarjun. At the end of the story Bapu explained that Lord Nrusinh has written a stotra describing this Sahastrarjun, who was shishya (disciple) of Lord Dattatrey. One who recites this stotra gets everything He has lost. Bapu further explained by raising a question that if a stotra of a shishya of Lord Dattatrey can make such a huge difference then what difference would reciting stotra of Lord Dattatrey Himself would make?
