कोजागिरी पौर्णिमा - महत्वाची माहिती

बापूंनी प्रवचनामध्ये कोजागिरी पौर्णिमेच्या दिवशी जागरण करण्याचे महत्व सांगितले होते, यासंबंधीचा व्हिडीओ मी यापूर्वीच माझ्या ब्लॉगवर पोस्ट केला आहे.

अनेक श्रद्धावानांकडून विचारणा करण्यात आली आहे की, संपूर्ण रात्र जागरण करायचे आहे का, परंतु संपूर्ण रात्र जागरण करणे बंधनकारक नसून श्रद्धावान पहाटे ३.३० वाजेपर्यंतही जागरण करू शकतात. कृपया सर्व श्रद्धावानांनी याची नोंद घ्यावी.

Kojagiri Pournima- Important Information



In my earlier blog post, a video clipping of Bapu’s pravachan wherein he had spoken about the importance of staying awake during the night of Kojagiri Pournima was shared. 

Many Shraddhavans have enquired whether it is compulsory to stay awake for the whole night. Please note that that staying awake for the whole night is not mandatory and it would suffice if one stays awake only till 3.30 am.

Kojagiri Pournima - Importance of Staying Awake


Hari Om Dear Friends,

Bapu, during his discourse on the auspicious occasion of Dassera, spoke about the importance of staying awake during the night of Ashwin Pournima which is also known as Kojagiri Pournima.

On this night, he said, Laxmi Mata, as told by Mahavishnu, travels around the world and makes enquiries wherever she visits - "Ko Jaagarti?" (Who is awake?). Any person who wakes through the night remembering the Sadguru, and waits for him, in the firm belief that he exists and that the Sadguru knows that he is being exhorted to come, that he knows everything - even if there is a semblance of such a feeling within that person - would be surely blessed by Laxmi Mata.  

I am pleased to attach the relevant video clip which will help you to see and hear Bapu as many times as you wish.

Aarti After Shree Aniruddha Chalisa Pathan

ll Hari Om ll

Shree Aniruddha Chalisa Pathan began in a very pious atmosphere at Shree Harigurugram. The Padchinnh and idol of Bapu arrived at 9:15 AM. After this the ceremony started with chanting of Anhik, Shree Aadimata Shubhankara Stavanam and 9 Vachane of Sadguru Bapu. 

Chanting of Shree Aniruddha Chalisa started at 10:00 AM. Shraddhavans have turned up in large numbers to take the advantage of this blessed opportunity.

Tomorrow's Collective Chanting of Shree Aniruddha Chalisa


I had vide my blogpost dated 14th October 2012 mentioned about Shree Aniruddha Chalisa Pathan to be held at Shree Harigurugram tomorrow i.e 20/12/2012. Also as this event coincides with the period of Bapu's Upasana it makes the event all the more pious. We can  also take darshan of "Padchinnh" of Param Pujya Bapu, Nandaai and Suchitdada and offer Bilwapatra and Tulsi. As Bapu has described this year as the period of enhancing the bhav of "Ek vishwas asava purata, karata harta guru aisa" ("एक विश्‍वास असावा पूर्ता, करता हरता गुरु ऎसा") in our minds, this opportunity offers an ideal chance to achieve the same.

Lalita Panchami - Shree Matruvatsalyavindanam Story

ll Hari Om ll
MothiAai at Residence of Bapu
The fifth day of the month of Ashwin (Ashwin shuddha panchami) is the Lalita Panchami. It was on the night of the Ashwin shuddha Panchami that the Adimata Mahishasurmardini manifested before the army of Shreeram to slay Durgam, who stood in the way of the fulfilment of Her blessings and Will – viz. the destruction of Ravan. It was then that with Her 'parshu', She slayed Durgam, the demon who assumed the form of the crow. Having slayed Durgam, the Adimata Mahishasurmardini called upon Her beloved daughter Alhadini in the 'leelagrahi', i.e. the 'Lalita' form, in order to inform Shreeram about this leela that She had brought about and also to keep Janaki informed and abreast in a timely way, about the Ram-Ravan war. This entire story appears in the 27th chapter of the Shree Matruvatsalyavindanam. This chapter that highlights the significance of the Lalita Panchami also includes the Ashubhanashini Stavan of Shree Adimata which in turn includes the prayer of Bibheeshan that is an all time guide for the shraddhavaan bhakta:

पापोऽहं पापकर्माऽहं पापात्मा पापसंभव:।
त्राहि मां आदिमाते सर्वपापहरा भव॥

"श्रीललिता पंचमी" - श्रीमातृवात्सल्यविंदानम कथा

ll हरि ॐ ll
बापूंच्या घरातील मोठेआई
श्विन शुद्ध पंचमी म्हणजेच श्रीललिता पंचमी. आदिमाता महिषासुरमर्दिनीने रामास दिलेला वर, म्हणजेच रावणाचा वध हे कार्य पूर्ण करण्याच्या आड येणार्‍या दुर्गमाचा वध करण्यासाठी रामसेनेच्या ठिकाणी ती आश्विन शुद्ध पंचमीच्या रात्रीस प्रगटली व तिने तिच्या परशुने त्या काकरूपी असुराचा म्हणजेच दुर्गमाचा वध केला. ह्या काकासुराचा अर्थात दैत्यराज दुर्गमाचा वध होताच आदिमाता महिषासुरमर्दिनीने तिच्या ह्या लीलेचे वृत्त श्रीरामास कळविण्यास व राम-रावण युद्धाचे पुढील वृत्त जानकीस वेळच्या वेळी कळविण्यासाठी आपल्या लाडक्या कन्येस - आह्लादिनीस "लीलाग्रही" अर्थात "ललिता" रूपाने तेथे पाचारण केले.

ही संपूर्ण कथा श्रीमातृवात्सल्यविंदानमच्या सत्तावीसाव्या अध्यायामध्ये येते. ललिता पंचमीचे महत्त्व सांगणार्‍या या अध्यायात श्रीआदिमातेचे अशुभनाशिनी स्तवनही येते. ह्या स्तवनामध्ये सर्व श्रद्धावान भक्तांना मार्गदर्शक ठरणारी बिभीषणाची प्रार्थना आहे:

पापोऽहं पापकर्माऽहं पापात्मा पापसंभव:।
त्राहि मां आदिमाते सर्वपापहरा भव॥

Navratra Celebrations at Shree Aniruddha Gurukshetram


Today, i.e. on 16th October 2012, on the auspicious occasion of  Ashwin Navratra, at the dawn, Shraddhavan volunteers of Shree Aniruddha Gurukshetram performed the sacred ritual of "Mangal Snanam" on Mata Shivgangagauri. For the purposes of this ritual Mata Shivgangagauri was shifted from Udikund and installed on the Dharmasan of Shree Aniruddha Gurukshetram where Shraddhavans carried out "Haridra Lepan" (applied Haridra to Mata Shivgangagauri). After this, She was bathed with lukewarm water and was then worshiped with Kumkum-Haridra, yellow flowers & garlands. Shraddhavaans present were continuously chanting the "Shivgangagauri Gayatri Mantra" during this ritual.


The most precious moment was when Param Pujya Bapu arrived while this ritual was being performed. Bapu himself offered red bangles to Mata Shivgangagauri. This opportunity of offering red bangles is now available to all Shraddhavan Bhaktas throughout the period of Navratrotsav.

Also, as being done every year, the 3 Dhwajas hoisted at Shree Aniruddha Gurukshetram were also changed at sunrise.



Later in the day, in the presence of Param Pujya Nandaai and Suchitdada; amidst the beats of dhol and the scintillating music of shenai, cymbals, conch shells and other mangal vaadyas the welcome procession of Toades of Mothiaai took place today at Shree Aniruddha Gurukshetram in traditional style.

Shree Matruvatsalyavindanam Paaraayan


ll हरि ॐ ll 

श्रीमातृवात्सल्यविंदानम्‌ मध्ये दिल्याप्रमाणे ह्या ग्रंथाच्या पारायाण करण्याच्या तीन पध्दती आहेत. त्यातील पध्दतीप्रमाणे चैत्र व अश्‍विन नवरात्रामध्ये प्रतिपदेच्या दिवशी ग्रंथपठणास आरंभ करून नवमीच्या रात्री बारा वाजेपर्यंत ग्रंथ वाचून पूर्ण करावयाचा आहे. तसेच ह्या ग्रंथाचे उद्यापन दशमीच्या दिवशी, म्हणजे दसर्‍याच्या दिवशी करावयाचे आहे. 

ह्या वर्षी दि. १६ ऑक्टोबर २०१२ रोजी सुरु होणार्‍या आश्‍विन नवरात्रीमध्ये नवमी आठव्या दिवशी येत असली तरी, प्रतिपदेच्या दिवशी ग्रंथपठणास आरंभ करून आठव्या दिवशी नवमीच्याच रात्री, म्हणजे दि. २३ ऑक्टोबर २०१२ रोजी रात्री बारा वाजेपर्यंत ग्रंथ वाचून पूर्ण करावयाचा आहे व उद्यापन दसर्‍याच्या दिवशी म्हणजे २४ ऑक्टोबर २०१२ रोजी करावयाचे आहे.

English Note:

As stated in the Shree Matruvatsalyavindanam, there are three ways of doing the “Paaraayan”  of this holy granth.  As per the first method, during the Chaitra or Ashwin Navratra, one can start reading the granth on the first day (Pratipada) and complete it on the night of the 9th day by 12 midnight. Accordingly the Udyaapan of the granth would be on the 10th day (Dashami) i.e  on the day of Dassera.

This year the Ashwin Navratra is starting on 16th October 2012 and since the Navami is falling on the 8th day, one has to start reading the granth on the first day and complete it on the 8th day itself i.e 23rd October 2012 by 12 midnight. Accordingly the Udyaapan would be on the day of Dassera i.e  24th October 2012.
