Sainath Sadguru

Bapu (Aniruddhasinh), Suchitdada and myself at Aadyapipa Samadhi Sthanam
Today is Shreekrishna Jayanti, the Kalashtami of the month of Shravan, in other words 'Gokulashtami' – a very special day for all of the Bapu (Aniruddhasinh) family. It was on this day that Adyapipa i.e. "Kaka" left this world. 'Kaka' was what we - my Dada - and I called our father.

साईनाथ सद्‌गुरु

बापू (अनिरुद्धसिंह), सूचितदादा व मी, काकांच्या समाधीस्थानमला नमस्कार करताना
ज श्रीकृष्ण जयंती; श्रावणातील कालाष्टमी म्हणजेच गोकुळ अष्टमी. आज सर्व बापू (अनिरुद्धसिंह) कुटुंबीयांकरिता हा एक विशेष दिवस. आजच्याच दिवशी आद्यपिपांचे म्हणजे "काकांचे" निर्वाण झाले; मी, दादा त्यांना "काका" म्हणूनच हाक मारत असू.

Mangalagauri Poojan

On Tuesday, 7th August 2012, we celebrated Dhrutiveera’s Mangalagaur. Handed down by tradition, this ceremony is performed by a newly married woman on any of the Tuesdays’ of the month of Shraavana. This is a vrat and she offers it as a prayer for the long and healthy life of her husband as also for the well being of her family. This poojan essentially includes  
  • The Panchopchare Ganesh Poojan
  • The Panchvakya Punyahavaachan  
  • The Annapurna Poojan 
  • The Abhishek, Patri Archan, Grah Yadnya and Havan.
Along with her women friends the one offering the poojan, performs the aarti thrice in the day.
