Hari Om Friend,

Gudi Padwa, the first day of the month of Chaitra and the traditional new year. The first day of the year is celebrated by worshiping Mother Durga as it marks the beginning of auspicious Chaitra Shubhankara Navratri Utsav, which continues until the Chaitra Pournima.

This year has started with Sadguru Shree Aniruddha having already told the Shraddhavans the importance of chanting 16 mala (1728 times) of the sovereign Trivikram Matragajar and of remaining in the Devotion Sentience. The Shraddhavans performed poojan of Mother Mahishasurmardini in the form of Ishtika during the period of the Navratri.

The recitation of the sacred Granthas - Shree Matruvatsalyavindanam authored by Sadguru Shree Aniruddha is performed from first day of the Navratri by the Shraddhavans and is concluded on the occasion of Ramnavami.

According to Sadguru Shree Aniruddha, the recital of Shree Matruvatslyavindanam Grantha ( ) or the Matruvatsalya Upanishad Granth ( during this period provides ample pious vibrations to the Shraddhavans.

The details for this recitation have been mentioned in these granthas itself. The benefits derived from such recitation are multifold.

Celebration of Hanuman Poornima at Atulitbaldham - Ratnagiri (Maharashtra)

Shree Aniruddha Upasana Foundation

The last day of Shubhankara Navartri is the Chaitra Pournima i.e. the Hanuman Pournima. This occasion was celebrated at the Atulitbaladham, Ratnagiri by performing Panchkumbhabhishek on the idol of Shree Panchmukh Hanumanta, while Shree Panchamukh Hanuman Kavach is recited. Shraddhavans willingly participated and performed the abhishek in this Utsav this year as well.

On the pious occasion of Chaitra Pournima (Hanuman Pournima), Sadguru Shree Aniruddha established the idol of Shree Dattatreya in Shree Govidyapitham at Kothimbe through Mahadharmavarman Shri Yogindrasinh Joshi and Mahadharmavarman Vishakhaveera Joshi.

The Aadyapipadada Samaadhi Sthapana Sohala was celebrated on April 20, 2019 at Shreekshetra Juinagar. The day is celebrated every year in the memory of Shree Aadypipa, Shri Sureshchandra Dattopadhye, who was ordained with the title of Aadyapipa. Aadyapipa firmly believed that when on the path of Bhakti, one has to remain down to earth and humble, metaphorically like an ant. He referred to it as ‘Pipilika Panth’ or the path taken by an ant. This Sohala is being observed since the year 2007 when his memorial (samadhi) was inaugurated on April 19, 2007.

Shree Anjaneya Publication also had a bunch of releases lined up during this period and I feel extremely happy to announce that Shree Ramrasaayan Grantha (' ?productSearchCode=SRRENG') has been released and made available in English for the convenience of Shraddhavan friends. It was released right before the Chaitra Navratra, to enable us to perform our recital during Navaratri.

Sadguru Shree Aniruddha has already introduced the ‘Devotion Sentience’ (Bhaktibhav Chaitanya) to all the Shraddhavans through his editorials in the ‘Dainik Pratyaksha’ and also his discourses (Pitruvachan). The Shraddhavans too on their part are enjoying the Devotion Sentience and chanting the sovereign Mantragajar of the Trivikram.

Every Shraddhavan always wishes to stay connected with Sadguru Shree Aniruddha. At the same time, we also wish to communicate with other fellow Shraddhavans, who love Sadguru Shree Aniruddha, to know their experiences while staying in the Devotion Sentience.

Thus, on the very auspicious occasion of the Ramnavami (April 13, 2019), we launched a website, and our own Shraddhavan Social Network,, which will help our Shraddhavan friends to harmonize further with the Devotion Sentience and also introduce to us new Shraddhavan friends.

These websites will keep providing impetus to all Shraddhavan friends who are turning to Sadguru-bhakti and wish to remain in the Devotion Sentience, chant the Mantragajar to achieve progress in life. On the social network, the Shraddhavans will be able to express their thoughts and also share their photos, videos, updates, etc. of the Devotion Sentience-filled occasions like the Sadguru Paduka Poojan, the Sacchidanand Utsav, the Navratri Poojan, etc.

The distinctive feature of this camp was the utilization of technology. A unique QR Code was generated for every donor, who came for donation. This also helped to track his further progress at the camp. A real-time tracking screens were available for everyone to see the donor details at this camp. This shows how technology can assist in easing out complexities of work taken at a massive scale.

Another long-term approach taken by our organizations was to counsel the donors. who got rejected due to various medical reasons. Such counselling ensures that these donors feel positive about themselves and return next year with more zeal to the donation camp.

There were selfie counters, which attracted the Shraddhavans to click snaps and upload their proud selfie on the social networking sites.

In this Mega Blood Donation Camp at Mumbai, 85 Doctors, 176 paramedical staff and 309 support staff had participated from these 34 blood banks. Additionally, 50 doctors, 75 paramedical staff and 1200 volunteers of Shree Aniruddha Upasana Foundation had participated in this devotional service. The Shraddhavan donors and the volunteers themselves immersed in the ‘Devotional Sentience’ by participating in these camps. The efforts of the Shraddhavan Donors, the tireless efforts of the organizing committees and the efforts of Disaster Management Volunteers (DMVs) are recommendable.
