The Guruvaakya

This Thursday, Bapu (Aniruddhasinh) began His discourse on the Shree Saisachcharit with the explanation of the following verse from the first chapter:

अखंड गुरुवाक्यानुवृत्ती l दृढ धरितां चित्तवृती l श्रध्देचिया अढळ स्थिती l स्थैर्यप्राप्ति निश्‍चळ ll  

(When along with firm faith, the 'Guruvaakya' roots firmly at all times in the mind, imbibes and seeps deep into every spontaneous response and becomes a predisposition to all thought and deed and in fact the mind-set, when the Guruvaakya seizes, reigns over the chitta, it strengthens further the faith in the heart and leads for sure to the attainment of a state of absolute stability and contentment.)

To begin with, the first line of the verse was taken up for study. What exactly is the "Guruvaakya"? In the course of the explanation, Bapu (Aniruddhasinh) cited the 11 Assurances of Sainath. All of these eleven were indeed assurances given by Sainath, they were all His words, His pledge. But which among these is the 'Guruvaakya'? Bapu asked all the shradhavaans who were present. Each arrived at a different conclusion and so had a different reply to give. Finally Bapu (Aniruddhasinh) said, "शरण मज्‌ आला, आणि वाया गेला दाखवा दाखवा ऎसा कोणी" (Show me a person who surrendered unto Me with all his love and faith and ended up wasting himself!! There just cannot exist such a being) was the Guruvaakya. Bapu (Aniruddhasinh) then went on to explain what the concept of the "Guruvaakya" actually meant. (The Guruvaakya is the word of assurance, of certainty that on the one hand is in essence, a reflection of the Guru's own mission, principles and mind and on the other, is that one word on His part sufficing to tide over the shraddhavaan in any and every situation in life. It is that word that contains all the Guru's love for His bhaktas and His responsibility towards them). 

So the question that naturally arose in every Shraddhavaan mind was, 'What about the Guruvaakya of our Sadguru? Which one is it?' Bapu (Aniruddhasinh) then explained which one was the Guruvaakya He had given to us and also added when it was pronounced. Shri. Ajaysinh Kelaskar, a shraddhavaan friend stood up to play for all present, this very "Guruvaakya" in Bapu's (Aniruddhasinh) own voice. Ajaysinh had heard it during the Atmabal Mahotsav and had very lovingly recorded it at the time.
"I will never forsake you" is Bapu's (Aniruddhasinh) Word, His promise to His shraddhavaan friends and that is His "Guruvaakya". Many of us shraddhavaans wish to have the recording of Bapu's (Aniruddhasinh) Guruvaakya in Bapu's (Aniruddhasinh) own voice. And so, I am attaching to this post, the recording of this Guruvaakya for the sake of all the shraddhavaan Bapu bhaktas.

काल श्रीसाईसच्चरितावर प्रवचन करताना बापूंनी (अनिरुद्धसिंह) पहिल्या अध्यायातील खालील ओवीचे निरुपण सुरु केले.

अखंड गुरुवाक्यानुवृत्ती l दृढ धरितां चित्तवृती l श्रध्देचिया अढळ स्थिती l स्थैर्यप्राप्ति निश्‍चळ ll   

ह्या ओवीच्या पहिल्या चरणाचं निरुपण सुरु झाल. "गुरुवाक्य" म्हणजे नक्की काय? हे समजावून सांगताना बापूंनी (अनिरुद्धसिंह) साईनाथांच्या ११ वचनांचं उदाहरण दिलं. प्रत्येक वचन हे जरी साईनाथांचच असलं तरी सुध्दा ह्यातील गुरुवाक्य कोणतं हे त्यांनी सर्व श्रध्दावानांना विचारलं व प्रत्येक जण आपआपल्या परीने उत्तरं देत होता आणि शेवटी बापूंनी (अनिरुध्दसिंह) "शरण मज्‌ आला, आणि वाया गेला दाखवा दाखवा ऎसा कोणी ll", हे साईनाथांचं गुरुवाक्य कसं हे समजावून सांगितल व त्याच बरोबर सर्व श्रध्दावानांना "गुरुवाक्य" ही संकल्पना समजावून सांगितली.
