Hari Om, I am migrating my blog from www.samirsinh-dattopadhye.blogspot.com to www.aniruddhafriend-samirsinh.com. The old blog will be available for a week for old references and thereafter it will be redirected to new blog

My Mentor

Aniruddha_Bapu
Param Pujya Sadguru Shree Aniruddha Bapu
When I met Bapu (Aniruddhasinh) for the first time in the year 1985, one of the first things that he impressed upon me was setting my priorities in life – what I want to achieve and attain in life. It was he who put the meaning of the term progress in its true perspective – that which gives contentment (trupti) and satisfaction (samadhaan).

His personality was indeed awe inspiring - there was seemingly nothing that he had not mastered. His repertoire as an individual ranged from being a MD Doctor, to having a deep and intricate knowledge of sports and dramatics, knowledge and liking of music, and inter-personal relations. Beneath his calm demeanour and a loving and caring nature lay a person who did not tolerate any injustice towards the poor and helpless. It was he who ingrained in me the basic truth of our lives - Purity is the only decisive norm (Paavitrya Haech Pramaan).

Although I had been reading the Shri Sai Satcharita regularly, it was Bapu
who initiated me into an altogether different approach of reading the Shri Sai Satcharita. His lectures on Shri Sai Satcharita during the Panchasheel Practicals were a veritable treasure trove. His discourses on Shri Sai Satcharita open up facets that one would never have thought about. 


The transition from Mentor to Sadguru occurred without my even realizing it; in the year 1997, on the occasion of Guru Pournima, I performed the paadya poojan of my Sadguru Param Poojya Bapu
. It was indeed an unforgettable moment of my life.


“You and I firm together, nothing can stand in the way ever” – the promise given by my Sadguru, is a continuing source of inspiration for me; a beacon light that has always guided me and will continue to guide me at all times.

Indeed Dada, as you have rightly pointed out , there is seemingly nothing that Param Pujya Bapu has not mastered. Yes, Param Pujya Bapu's promise continues to be a source of inspiration for all those who wish to abide by his principles.
