Paris (France) – Maharshi, Saints of the highest order, and spiritual organisations have praised the exceptional and invaluable contribution of Sachchidananda Parabrahman (Dr) Jayant Athavale (Sanatan Sanstha’s Founder), who is a Jnan Guru (An Omniscient Spiritual Master who imparts Supreme knowledge to a disciple), Dharma Guru (A Spiritual Master who is the embodiment of Dharma) and Moksha Guru (A Spiritual Master who helps the deserving disciple attain Moksha). In addition, His Divine mission for the welfare of mankind has now been recognised at International forums as well. On 5th June 2024, Sachchidananda Parabrahman (Dr) Athavale, was honoured with the 11th ‘Bharat Gaurav Award’ at the French Senate.

‘Bharat Gaurav Award’ is conferred upon distinguished individuals to honour their significant contributions in various spheres of human life, such as arts, culture, sports, Spirituality, etc. This prestigious Award given by the ‘Sanskruti Yuva Sanstha’ is the highest International Award conferred upon Indians. This Award was given for His exceptional contribution to the global spread of Indian culture and civilisation. On behalf of Sachchidananda Parabrahman (Dr) Athavale, His Spiritual Heirs – Shrisatshakti (Mrs) Binda Singbal and Shrichitshakti (Mrs) Anjali Gadgil – accepted the Award. The grand ceremony was attended by Pandit Suresh Mishra (President of Sanskruti Yuva Sanstha) and other dignitaries from around the world.

The Award is a blessing of Adishakti

Vinayak Shanbhag

The name ‘Paris’ for the capital of France is derived from the Name of Goddess Parmeshwari, who is a form of Adishakti. During the Roman civilisation, the city of Paris was called ‘Parisiorum.’ This name is actually the abbreviation of the Goddess’ Name ‘Parmeshwari’ as Paris was Her abode in the ancient times. The honour bestowed upon Sachchidananda Parabrahman (Dr) Athavale at the French Senate, on foreign soil, and in the very abode of Adishakti, is indeed a blessing from Goddess Parmeshwari. Some years ago, Maharshi had said through a Nadipatti Reading that the glory of Sachchidananda Parabrahman Gurudev (Dr) Athavale would spread worldwide. The ‘Bharat Gaurav Award’ to Gurudev in Paris validates Maharshi’s words.

Shrisatshakti (Mrs) Binda Singbal

Sanatan Sanstha is grateful to Sanskruti Yuva Sanstha and Pandit Suresh Mishra ji, for felicitating Sachchidananda Parabrahman (Dr) Athavale. Although His stature as a Saint transcends Awards and honours, this recognition is a tribute to His Divine mission for the welfare of mankind. We believe that this Award honours Sachchidananda Parabrahman (Dr) Athavale’s exceptional research, compilation of Texts, and conceptualisation of Gurukrupayoga – the Path for mankind to progress fast spiritually, for introducing Spirituality in Sanatan Dharma as an established science.
