From the Editor's Desk

Hari Om Friend,

I wish you and your dear ones a very happy and prosperous New Year! By the grace of Sadguru Shree Aniruddha, we all have stepped into the year 2020 celebrating the Aniruddha Bhaktibhav Chaitanya!

I am sure we all are still immersed in the loving memories from the day of 31st December, which we spent with Sadguru Shree Aniruddha – enjoying and dancing to the abhangas composed on him.

December, in fact, Margashirsha, is a holy month in which, starting from the Datta Jayanti, Shraddhavans celebrate Shree Sacchidaananda Utsav and observed the Vardhamaan Vratadhiraj merrily!

Shree Sacchidananda Utsav

Shraddhavans celebrate Shree Sacchidanandotsav in the month of Margashirsha, which is considered the paramount of divinity.

In the Utsav, Shraddhavans worship the revered Sadguru Padukas made from the paper pulp of the Ramnaam Books.

Every year, from the second Saturday of the Shukla Paksha in Margashirsha, Shraddhavans celebrate the Sacchidanand Utsav by immersing themselves in the Sadguru Devotion Sentience.

The Utsav is held either for one and a half day or five days. Shraddhavans offer their love and express their humble gratitude to the Sadguru by surrendering unto Him with the ever-increasing Bhaktibhav Chaitanya!

Moreover, performing Paduka Poojan in Margashirsha opens doorways of development and closeness to the Parmatma.

Besides, the one who welcomes and worships the Sadguru Padukas at home, the Kalipurush or evil is unable to impede his progress.

Dattajayanti Utsav

The Shree Dattajayanti occurs on the Margashirsha Pournima in December. It is when Shree Dattatreya was born. For this reason, the Shree Dattajayanti Utsav is celebrated at Shree Harigurugram, Bandra. Shree Aniruddha Upasana Foundation


The Dattajayanti also marks the commencement of the month-long Vardhaman Vratadhiraj, which extends into January, covering the New Year day thus ensuring that Shraddhavans get to start the New Year with the Vrat that helps to achieve the 'Nava Ankur Aishwarya' of the Paramatma.

Shree Vardhaman Vratadhiraj

On 24th December 2009, Sadguru Shree Aniruddha explained the significance of Shree Vardhamaan Vratadhiraj. He explained the word, 'Vardhaman', meaning the one that grows and lets us grow. The various energy centres in our body, which are otherwise inactive at the gross, subtle and supra-ocular levels, are activated on observing the Vrat. Sadguru Shree Aniruddha has opened this Vrat for every Shraddhavan.

The Vardhaman Vratadhiraj is the Mahamarga – the supreme way of attaining Parmatma's ‘Nava Ankur Aishwarya’.

Shree Vardhaman Vratadhiraj is the highest pinnacle among all the Vrats. Shree Vardhaman Vratadhiraj is the sovereign vow that reinforces the divine blessings and destroys ill-fate.

One who observes the Vrat for a minimum of 9 times or 1/4th years of his life gets delivered from the worst of sins (Pancha Mahapaap).

Furthermore, the ones who perform this Vrat wholeheartedly, at least once in the lifetime, the intensity of their sufferings and pains reduces.

Shraddhavans who perform this annual Vrat more than once in their lives, achieve happiness and get rid of distress.

Dainik Pratyaksha Dattajayanti Special Issue

In 2005, Sadguru Shree Aniruddha launched the Dainik Pratyaksha on the auspicious occasion of Dattajayanti. Since then, every year, the Dainik Pratyaksha releases an 'Anniversary Special Issue' on occasion. It contains articles on various topics ranging from current affairs to the latest lifestyle trends, science, information technology, etc.

The spectrum of subjects Pratyaksha covers in its Special Issue is so vast that it is not possible to name all the fields covered. This year, the Dainik Pratyaksha completed 14 years and chose to retain last year's theme, 'The Special, The Astonishing, The Peculiar!'.

This issue gave insights into some of the most interesting but unknown topics like Space colonies, Supersoldiers, human trafficking, the life story of Indian space scientist Nambi Narayanan, Jharia coalfield that is burning for more than 100 years, Offer to purchase Greenland given by Donald Trump, Fake News about Tromso village of Norway and how the Rambo series of movies project the soft power of the United States.

Vaibhav Lakshmi Utsav

The Shree Vaibhav Lakshami Utsav is celebrated at Shree Gurukul Juinagar in the pious month of Margashirsha.

The Goddess Vaibhavlakshami is the Chetana Shakti - the vital force of Bhagwan Mahavishnu.

It is Her, who is the Srividya - the basis of the Mahavishnu's Karya!

The existence of Goddess Lakshami is assured at the Lotus Feet of Parmatma, which means She resides and grants bliss wherever the Lotus Feet of the Parmatma Mahavishnu are worshipped.

This Utsav occurs during the period between November and December.

Shraddhavans can witness and participate in the Vaibhav Lakshmi Poojan and Yaga.
