Anant Chaturdashi - Focus on Aniruddha's Academy of Disaster Management

Hari Om Dear Friends,
I am sure most of you would have either participated, or watched the deferred telecast on the In-Mumbai channel, or seen the video post on my blog. Let me tell you that this year’s procession was by far the biggest that we have had in all these years. The participation in the procession was significantly more this year. It is to the credit of the DMVs of Aniruddha’s Academy of Disaster Management (AADM) that they had the situation in control at all times, despite the serious challenges that were posed to them by the huge gathering. They were able to successfully divert the traffic.

Talking of AADM, I am very happy to inform you that even Wikipedia has recognized the role played by AADM and have approved the post of a note on AADM on their site. (Please click here to view that article).
With the Punarmilap of our Bapu’s Ganapati Bappa, for us the focus has shifted to Anant Chaturdashi on which day thousands of our DMVs will be manning several key points where immersions are slated to take place, helping the police and municipal authorities in controlling crowds and regulating them effectively. It is a matter of great pride for us that our DMVs have earned unqualified praise from police and municipal authorities alike for the most effective manner in which they have helped in regulating the massive crowds on the last day of the immersion.

On the day following Anant Chaturdashi, our volunteers will be busy in the early hours of the morning cleaning up the beaches and helping in the re-immersion of idols that have been washed ashore. These idols are generally made from Plaster-of-Paris.

This brings me to the topic of eco-friendly Ganapatis. It is indeed a matter of great pride for all of us that the Government of Goa, based on a presentation made by our Goa Upasana Centre sevaks on the benefits of eco-friendly Ganapatis, wants us to pursue our Eco Friendly Ganesh project in Goa in a big way.

All Eyes On The Grand Finale


Hari Om Dear Friends,

Two days have passed as if in a flash. Yesterday, the darshan having started in the morning at 9.00 am, people could get darshan very comfortably. The last person took darshan at 8.00 p.m. A group of people who had turned up late had assembled at the gate. Bapu, being the ocean of compassion, came down on the first floor terrace and gave darshan. There wasn’t a single soul who went back disappointed.

It has been raining since morning today. People had started queuing up for darshan since 6:00 am. Suchitdada, who had hardly slept a wink, rushed down immediately and ensured that everybody was accommodated within the compound of Happy Home. At around 9:30 am. Nandai stepped down and, in an instant, the gloomy atmosphere brought about by the rains had been completely transformed. The smiles were back on the faces and everyone felt energized. Like yesterday, Nandai took a complete round within the complex and thereafter went outside on the road to meet people waiting in the queue; enquiring about their well being along the way. Such compassion… it is truly indescribable.

As I write this note, the rains seem to have relented. It is getting brighter; let us hope that it continues to get brighter.

Preparations are in full swing for the Punarmilap (procession). Those of you, who haven’t seen our procession, and who can make it, try not to miss it. Those who are unable to make it for whatever genuine reasons, the procession is being covered live on In-Mumbai channel. The coverage, I am informed, covers Thane as well.

Have to take your leave now.

Bapu at 2nd Day of Shri Aniruddha Gurukshetram Ganeshotsav


 Bapu at 2nd Day of Shri Aniruddha Gurukshetram Ganeshotsav

Pleasant Surprise from Nandai

Hari Om Dear Friends

I trust you all enjoyed watching the video clip of PP Bapu, Aai and Dada performing the aarti of Ganapati Bappa last night.

Today is the second day of Ganeshotsav. PP Nandai sprang a pleasant surprise today morning when she came down and took a complete round within the complex interacting with bhaktas waiting to take darshan of Ganapati Bappa. Then, the epitome of compassion that she is, she actually stepped right out on the road and walked the entire length upto the point where the last bhakta was standing. Along the way, she stopped to talk to bhaktas, making enquiries of them. 
 
Bhaktas could not believe their eyes that their Nandai had actually stepped out on the road to enquire about their well-being.

Aarti of Mothiaai - Mahishasurmardini by Bapu

Hari Om Dear Friends,

The Maha Aarti just got over now. I have no words to describe the atmosphere that built up during the aarti. Watching Bapu dance while his mother's glories were being sung was a joy to behold. I have rush down to make sure everyone gets darshan and prasad. Will send a detailed note on the Maha Aarti sometime later.

Shree Ganesh Poojan Vidhi - Part 02

Shree Ganesh Chaturthi Poojan



The Ganesh Chaturthi  Poojan was performed in the morning at around 11:00 am by Swapnilsinh and Paurassinh in the presence of Param Poojya Bapu, Nandai and Suchitdada. The poojan rituals were performed in line with the simple procedure laid down by Bapu and summarized in the booklet named "Shree Ganesh Pooja Vidhi". After the poojan, Param Poojya Bapu, Nandai and Suchitdada did lotangan before Shree Ganesh. The name of Lord Ganesha this year is “Shree VaradaVinayak”. After that the swayambhu Ganesh was taken to Shree Aniruddha Gurukshetram and placed next to Shree Moolarka Ganesh for darshan.

Arrival of Shri Ganesh at Shree Aniruddha Gurukshetram

Hari Om Dear Friends,


The long wait for Ganapati Bappa got finally over today. Amidst great fanfare, with Shraddhavaans dancing to the drum beats Ganapati Bappa was brought to Happy Home to our beloved Sadguru, Bapu’s residence.

The huge procession started on the dot of 6.15 p.m. near Amarsons on Linking Road, Bandra and reached Happy Home at around 7.45 pm. Before that, the idol of Datta Bappa and Ganapati Bappa arrived around 6.00 pm. Thereafter, we all chanted ‘Ramo Rajamani Sada Vijayate..’, ‘Padmaseenam Shyamavarnam….’, ‘Avadhoota Chintan Shree Gurudeva Datta’, ‘Om Namashchandikaayay’ and ‘Nanda Ramanaa Aniruddha, Aniruddha, Aniruddha.

Within a few moments, the entire atmosphere in that area had undergone a complete change. The intense devotional fervour of Shraddhavaans dancing to the rhythm of the drumbeats and taashaas, teams of lezim dancing tirelessly with the name of their Sadguru on their lips, all had the necessary impact. There was hardly a passerby who did not stop to watch our procession with a sense of awe. As usual, the entire procession went so smoothly, without disturbing the vehicular traffic, that the police authorities did not have any anxious moments whatsoever.

When we turned the corner to proceed to the entrance of Happy Home, we could see Bapu, Aai and Dada standing on the podium waiting to welcome Ganapati Bappa and their other Shraddhavaan friends, who had participated in the procession.

Bapu, Aai and Dada greeted all those who had participated in the procession, before proceeding to receive Ganapati Bappa.

Through this post, I am inviting each one of you, my friends, to come to our beloved Bapu’s home for the Ganeshotsav celebrations. Those who are staying outstation and are unable to come to Happy Home, will also get an opportunity to have darshan of Ganapati Bappa and also that of Bapu, Nandai and Suchit Dada through our deferred live broadcast. We intend to start the deferred live broadcast from today at 10.00 am, commencing with the pooja.

(Providing you all with some beautiful moments of the Welcome Procession of Shri Ganesh)

Hari Om Friends, 

I am sure all of you must now be eagerly awaiting the arrival of Shree Ganesh. As I have already informed everyone through this blog that bhaktas can avail benefit of taking darshan of Shree Ganesh at Bapu's Home as well. 

For all those who would not be in position to attend the same and for those would want to enjoy and cherish these golden moments forever, Deferred Live broadcasting of all the important events will be directly shown at intervals from Shree Aniruddha Gurukshetram and Bapu's Residence i.e. 7th Floor, Happy Home. We will try to broadcast almost each and every event as far as possible through ANIRUDDHA BAPU VIDEOS YouTube Channel. The events will be broadcasted within 30-45 minutes of its happening. This broadcast would start from 6:30 PM IST today. We will try to indicate the timing of next broadcast in advance. 

Though it is possible to show entire event live using Google Hangout and YouTube but as there is some quality loss in picture we have preferred to broadcast the events Deferred Live rather than actual live. 

I will also like to inform that we have rescheduled the Welcome Procession (Shree Ganesh Aagaman) at about 5:30 PM  - 5:45 PM IST.

The Invocation of Shree Rudra: Bapu (Aniruddhasinh) Reads a Poem


On the day of the Shivaratri poojan in the month of Shravan, Bapu said, "The great poet Shri. B.R. Tambe has written a poem on Shree Rudra. It would be really nice if we get hold of it today." Suchitdada promptly downloaded the poem for Bapu from internet and then Bapu read us the poem. I happened to get the opportunity to record it on the cell phone. We really enjoyed it. It is truly special for every one of us. 

To this post, I am attaching for all, the audio clip of the poem that Bapu read to us. I am very sure all my friends will love it.

रुद्रास आवाहन : बापूंनी (अनिरुद्धसिंह) केलेले कविता वाचन

श्रावण महिन्यातील शिवरात्री पूजनाच्या दिवशी परमपूज्य बापूंनी विचारले की, "कविश्रेष्ठ, श्री. भा. रा. तांबे ह्यांची श्रीरूद्रावरील खूप छान कविता आहे; ती कविता आज मिळाल्यास खूप चांगले होईल. हे ऎकताच सूचितदादांनी बापूंना ही कविता इंटरनेटवरुन डाऊनलोड करुन दिली. त्यानंतर बापूंनी आम्हा सर्वांना ही कविता म्हणून दाखविली व ती मला मोबाईलवर रेकॉर्ड करण्याची संधी मिळाली. We really enjoyed it. It is special for everyone of us.

सर्वांसाठी बापूंनी म्हणलेल्या त्या कवितेची ऑडिओ क्लिप व टेक्स्ट येथे देत आहे. मला खात्री आहे माझ्या सर्व मित्रांना ती नक्कीच आवडेल.

Shree Aniruddha Gurukshetram Ganeshotsav



ll Hari Om ll



Bapu did not come to Shree Harigurugram last evening (Thursday, 13th September 2012) and so, instructed me to make the announcements about the Shree Ganesh festival to be celebrated at His home, i.e. about the Shree Aniruddha Gurukshetram Ganeshotsav. Bapu has very earnestly and affectionately invited all His Shraddhavaan friends to this celebration. Along with the darshan of Shree Ganesh at Bapu's home, all the Shraddhavaans will be blessed with the opportunity of the darshan of the Shree Moolarka Ganesh and of course like every year, that of the Svayamabhu Ganesh as well and that certainly is the highlight of the festival.

For every shraddhavaan Bapu-bhakta, to be blessed with the darshan of Shree Ganesh at Bapu's home is indeed a treat, a very special moment. As the Shree Saisachcharit says,

गुरुनाम आणि गुरुसहवास l गुरुकृपा आणि गुरुचरण पायस l
गुरुमंत्र आणि गुरुगृहवास महत्प्रयास प्राप्ती ही l


(The name of the Guru and His intimate company; the grace of the Guru and the sacred and blessed milk washed off His feet and so sweetened; the Gurumantra and living or being in the Guru's home – are all rare privileges and attainments of arduous effort.)

What we need to note here is, that the 'Guru-gruhavaas' (being in the Sadguru's own home) comes only at the end of the third segment of this verse. No doubt all that the verse talks about stands to be attained only after onerous effort but the opportunity to step into the Sadguru's home and be there, is indeed the rarest and the most difficult proposition of all. And here, our Sadguru Bapu has opened it up for all the Shraddhavaan Bapubhaktas! He has made the opportunity available for each Shraddhavaan bhakta and so easy at that! Now it is up to us, to make the most of this golden chance.

The programme schedule of the Shree Ganesh festival at Bapu's home will be as follows:

1) Tuesday, 18-9-2012 – the day of Hartalika i.e. the day before Shree Ganesh Chaturthi.

The welcome procession: Begins at 5:00 pm at 'Amarsons', Bandra. A wonderfully unique procession, many Shraddhavaan bhaktas join in in this procession every year.
    
2) Wednesday, 19-9-2012 – the day of Shree Ganesh Chaturthi, i.e. the 1st day of the Ganesh Festival: 

Shree Ganesh poojan:  9:00 am onwards
Darshan: 11:00 am to 9:00 pm
The Maha-aarti : 9:00 pm 

3) Thursday, 20-9-2012 - The day of Rishi Panchami, i.e. the 2nd day of the Ganesh Festival:
Darshan : 9:00 am to 8:00 pm

4) Friday, 21-9-2012 - The 3rd day of the Ganesh Festival:
Darshan: 9:00 am to 1:00 pm
The punarmilap procession begins: between 4:00 and 4:30 pm

Bapu, Nandai and Suchitdada extend a warm invitation to you all to join in in the welcome and the punarmilap processions. Do be part of the celebrations.

श्रीअनिरुद्ध गुरुक्षेत्रम्‌ गणेशोत्सव (२०१२) कार्यक्रम

बापूंनी श्री मूलार्कगणेशाला उपरणे अर्पण केले

ज बापूंनी (अनिरूद्धासिंह) श्रीमूलार्कगणेशाला स्वत: उपरणे अर्पण करुन पूजन केले. बापूंनी अर्पण केलेल्या  उपरण्यासहित श्रीमूलार्कगणेशाचे फोटो या पोस्ट बरोबर देत आहे.

Launch of a New "Downloads" Section on Blog




Hari Om Dear Friends,

Over the years there have been occasions where many Shraddhavaans have enquired about the stotras / japs that are being chanted in our Bapu parivar. Besides, there is this problem of pronunciation and tune faced by people who are not familiar with Sanskrit, Marathi and Hindi languages and are thus unable to chant it in the ‘proper’ manner. This invariably leads to a feeling of anxiety and dissatisfaction of not chanting it correctly and the consequences thereof.  The challenge is even greater in the case of Shraddhavans who are born and brought up outside India and are therefore completely alien to Indian languages.

श्रीमूलार्क गणेशाच्या स्थापनेची पूर्णता

ll हरि ॐ ll


काल पोस्टमध्ये लिहिल्याप्रमाणे आज बापूंनी अधिक महिन्यातील अंगारक संकष्ट चतुर्थीच्या दिवशी दिव्य, सिध्द व स्वयंभू अशा श्रीमूलार्क गणेशाची श्रीअनिरुध्द गुरुक्षेत्रम्‌ येथे स्थापना केली.

Bapu installs the Shree Moolark Ganesh in Shree Aniruddha Gurukshetram

ll Hari Om ll 


As shared in yesterday's post, today, i.e. on the day of the Angaraki Chaturthi of the Adhik Maas (month), Bapu installed the divine, siddha (equipped with matchless capacities) and svayambhu (self-existent) Shree Moolark Ganesh at Shree Aniruddha Gurukshetram. 

Shree Moolarka Ganesh

ll Hari Om ll

Today Parampoojya Bapu gave us the follwing jap of the Shree Moolarka Ganesh at Shree Aniruddha Gurukshetram:

Om Gam Ganapate Shreemoolaarka Ganapate Varvarada Shreeaadhaar Ganeshaaya Namah Sarvavighnaan Naashay Sarvasiddhim Kuru Kuru Svaahaa ll 

(ॐ गं गणपते श्रीमूलार्कगणपते वरवरद श्रीआधारगणेशाय नमः सर्वविघ्नान्‌ नाशय सर्वसिद्धिं कुरु कुरु स्वाहा ।।)

All Shraddhaavaan bhaktas present at the time recited the jap along with Bapu and in the presence of Nandaai and Suchitdada. Bapu then gave the name "Shree Moolarka Ganesh" to Shree Ganesh. So let us wait for the darshan of the Shree Moolarka Ganesh – only until tomorrow...

ll Hari Om ll
