Celebrations for Param Poojya Nandai's Birthday

It feels great to convey to all the readers that tomorrow is a huge occasion for all the Shraddhavans the day when we would be celebrating the 50th birthday of our beloved Param Poojya Nandai. It would be the day of Divyanchi Amavasya (New Moon Day of Lanterns)

It was observed that many Shraddhavans had inquired about the best and the holiest way in which Nandai's birthday could be celebrated by all. Accordingly during yesterday's discourse at Shri Harigurugram Param Poojya Bapu described the way in which we can celebrated Nandai's birthday.

Details of the Celebrations: 
1) At the start we should lite a Deep (lamp) in our houses after 10 pm at night. 

2) The lighting of this special lamp would guarantee the entry and stay of Nandai in our homes.

3) Then looking at its flame we should call out "AAI "{3 times } and then say "HAPPY BIRTHDAY AAI

4) There after we should keep the flame of the Deep burning without putting it out ourselves which we generally do before going to bed with the other holy deeps that we lite. 

5) We can also do some decoration around the frame or idol of Nandai, in front of which we would have enlighted the deep. 

Many of the Shraddhavans have planned to donate hanks for clothing of poor children  in the Charkha Project of Shree Aniruddha Upasana Foundation and also have decided to contribute towards its Annapoorna Mahaprasadam Project which feeds the hungry, poor and needy as a gift to Her. So let us all celebrate our Mother's birthday in the best possible way.

Guru Poornima Utsav 2011

Shree Aniruddha Upasana Foundation would be organizing Guru Poornima Utsav (festival) on Saturday, 16th July 2010 at Shree Harigurugram, Bandra (East), Mumbai.

Details of Venue:
Shree Harigurugram
New English High School, Near Cardinal Gracias High School,
Kherwadi, Bandra (East), Mumbai - 400051

Timing of Utsav:

Morning 09:00 am till Night 09:00 pm

Over the years devotees have had divine experience of availing darshan of Parmatma Trayi i.e. Param Poojya Aniruddha Bapu, Param Poojya Nandai and Param Poojya Suchitdada.

Outline of Utsav:
>>> Aukshan would be performed (welcome in traditional Indian way) by devotees when Param Poojya Aniruddha Bapu, Param Poojya Nandai and Param Poojya Suchitdada would arrive in the morning.

>>> Sadguru Bapu would arrive on stage for offering darshan after which Shree Aniruddha Challisa would be chanted.

>>> After recitation of Shree Aniruddha Challisa is over the Shree Sairam Jap would be played after which visiting devotees can offer pradakshina (rotations) carrying Ishtikas (holy bricks) on their head.

>>> Sadguru Bapu would bless potful of Udi (sacred ash) with His Hastasparsha (Hand touch). This Udi then would be made available to all the visiting devotees.

>>> Recitation of Shree Aniruddha Challisa and Sadguru Bapu performing Udi Hastasparsha would be repeated hourly throughout the day.

>>> Certain volunteers would offer Basil leaves to idol of Lord Dattatrey and for the whole day recitation of hymn 'ॐ द्रां दत्तात्रेयाय नमः' would be performed continuously.

>>> After this, the devotees' darshan line would start, wherein they can avail darshan of Param Poojya Bapu.

>>> For the entire day devotees can offer Udd in Shree Aniruddha Agnihotra.

>>> At the very end of the Utsav, Maha-aarti of Param Poojya Aniruddha Bapu, Param Poojya Nandai and Param Poojya Suchitdada would be performed.

There are few changes that have been made in the celebrations of Gurupoornima  this year which are summarized as under.

1) This year the festival of Guru Poornima will be celebrated on 16th July 2011 which is a day later than the actual day on which Guru Poornima falls. This is done so that all the devotees can attend the festival as Saturday is generally a holiday or half day for many offices, establishments, schools, colleges, etc.

2) The day shall begin with the Poojan of the padukas of Shree Narsimha Saraswati done by Param Poojya Sadguru Bapu, Param Poojya Nandaai and Param Poojya Suchitdada Themselves. The water used in this consecration (abhishek) shall be given to all Shraddhavans as Teertha (holy water).

3) This year too we shall be having the pradakshina, albeit with some changes. The jap (Sairam, Jai Jai Sairam) remains the same but the Stambh (pillar) around which the pradakshina will be different. This year there will be a triangular pillar. On the 3 facets of this pillar shall have pictures of Bapu, Nandaai and Suchitdada with their hands raised upwards towards the sky. Atop this Pillar shall be a Lotus flower within which shall be kept the Padukas of Bapu's Shree Narsimha Saraswati. Beside these Padukas shall be kept the 2 Avadhoot Kumbhas. The Poorva Avdhoot Kumbha and the Apoorva Avdhoota Kumbha.

4) All Shradddhavans will be getting the unique opportunity of performing the Poojan of the Shree Trivikram. at the venue of celebrations. Till now Shraddhavans were able to perform the consecration (abhishek) on the Trivikram present only at the Shree Gurukshetram. The Trivikram is the manifest form of the Sadguru Tatva (Principle), i.e. every persons Sadguru resides within the Trivikram.

5) This year onwards we shall be having 3 Palkhis (Palanquins) in the Dindis. These Palkhis will have the Charan Mudra of our beloved Bapu. These palkhis shall be circulating within the Bhakti Ganga (Queue of Shraddhavans) amongst great celebration. Every Shraddhavan shall be able to bow down to these Charan Mudra.

Gurucharan Mas and Recitation of Shree Hanuman Challisa

(Note: To view this article clearly full screen use the options in Menu at the bottom of the presentation)

As like every year we are celebrating the period between Vat Poornima and Guru Poornima  as the chanting period of Shree Hanuman Challisa which happens to be the favourite hymn of Param Poojya Sadguru Bapu. This year this particular period has been named by no other than Param Poojya Sadguru Bapu Himself as 'Gurucharan Mas' (during His 16th June 2011 discourse at Shree Harigurugram). This period will be henceforth called by this name.

During this period Bapu has asked all the Shraddhavans to recite Hanuman Challisa as much as possible throughout the day. Bapu has also asked us to observe one day during this month on which we recite Shree Hanuman Challisa 108 times during the entire day (the chanting count of 108 can be broken up various sub-sittings for convenience of devotees). 

The document attached above clearly states the extreme importance of chanting Shree Hanuman Challisa. The exact text of Shree Hanuman Challisa has been mentioned here at the bottom of the post.
