Shree Shivsahaparivar Poojan
On Thursday, 20th June 2019, Sadguru Shree Aniruddha elucidated the significance of Shravan month to all the Shraddhavans. He also introduced Bhagwan Shiv’s Parivar (family) and explained the importance of Shree Shivsahaparivar Poojan. At the time, Bapu said, the month of Shravan is the month of Shravan Bhakti (listening to the glories of the divine) and bhakti of Bhagwan Shiva.
When we envision Bhagwan Shiva’s family, we picture Bhagwan Shiva, Mata Parvati, and their two sons, Ganesha and Kartikeya.
But, what we are not aware of are the two daughters Bhagwan Shiva and Mata Parvati, Balavishokasundari and Jyotirmayee. Sadguru Shree Aniruddha had also mentioned about Shree Shiva Parivar in 30th June’s Kathamanjiri- 11.
Eco-Friendly Ganesha idols
Shree Aniruddha Upasana Foundation, with help of numerous Shraddhavans, undertakes making of the Eco-Friendly Ganesha idols. The Eco-Friendly Ganesha idols’ seva began in 2005 under the guidance of Sadguru Shree Aniruddha.
Moreover, despite having the opportunity to patent this novel method, the Foundation refused to do so, in order to allow more people to use it and thus help restore the environment. Following are this year’s details of the Eco-Friendly Ganesh idols:-

Aniruddha’s Academy of Disaster Management
More than 4 lakh people across the districts of Kolhapur, Sangli, Satara, Pune and Solapur were affected by an unprecedented deluge. 769 villages in the 69 talukas spread across these five districts were severely hit. The Indian Army, Navy and NDRF together with local administration undertook rescue work in the districts. Along with these agencies, the ‘Aniruddha’s Academy of Disaster Management’ (AADM) played a valuable role in the rescue and relief seva.
The Disaster Management Volunteers rescued many people stuck in flood in some areas by using rafts. The DMVs also performed the crucial work of ‘crowd control’ with the help of the police and the local authorities. They also helped numerous families in moving their household items. The DMVs even safely evacuated the police personnel as the Sangli jail got inundated.
The Ham Radio (Amateur Radio) helped the DMVs immensely as they carried out the rescue and relief work. During the time when there was no mobile connectivity, and the power supply was out, it was the Ham Radio that the licensed DMVs used to coordinate within themselves as they went about the relief work.
The ‘Aniruddha’s Academy of Disaster Management’ provided the needy with clean water, food, clothes and grains. The DMVs in Karad and the adjoining areas also participated in the relief work. On receiving the information of 500 truckers being stuck on the National Highway 4 for two days, it was within just an hour that the ‘DMVs’ of the ‘Aniruddha’s Academy of Disaster Management’ made arrangements for their meals.
Later, under the 'Juna Tey Soney' Project, many Shraddhavans have come forward to lend a helping hand. The 'Juna Tey Soney' Project was introduced and initiated by Sadguru Shree Aniruddha as a part of his 13-Point-Programme. The Shraddhavans donated clothes and other household accessories to support the people affected by these floods. So far, about 17,000+ clothes, including t-shirts, trousers, blankets and baby clothes and 7000+ packets of other household accessories, which include grains, pulses, wheat flour, tea powder, toothpaste, etc. have been provided by Upasana Centres from Mumbai. The Upasana Centres across Maharashtra have provided 3000+ clothes.
