Chant as much as you can ! : H.H. (Smt.) Shalini Mainkar
After the felicitation, H.H. (Smt.) Mainkar paid respects to Paratpar Guru (Dr.) Athavale and said, “I cannot describe the love He has for seekers. He is our God. Seekers should perform sadhana as advised by Him. Chant as much as you can as per His guidance”.
Smt. Mainkar is the best example of how humility, love without expectations and detached attitude lead to rapid spiritual progress
Smt. Shalini Mainkar basically has a sattvik attitude and least ego. She has faced difficult times in her worldly life with a lot of patience. She accepted every incident as the wish of God and taught everyone how to practise Spirituality. She led a worldly life but her subconscious mind was always at the Holy feet of Shri Guru.
Smt. Mainkar is the best example of how humility, love without expectations and a detached attitude lead to rapid spiritual progress even when leading a worldly life.
Bhav (Spiritual emotion), Priti (Love without expectations) and pure Anand (Bliss) on her face exhibit her Sainthood. The role of seekers in Karwar and her relatives also deserve praise because they could correctly identify the changes that have taken place in her and her residence.
She attained the spiritual level of 71% because of her characteristics such as least ego, Priti, etc., and she has become Sanatan’s 86th Saint.
I am certain that she will rapidly progress spiritually in future too.
– Paratpar Guru (Dr.) Athavale
While there are many generic paths to God, the Path of Guru’s grace (Gurukrupayoga) is the most important from the perspective of achieving the ultimate in spiritual evolution. In every aspect of life, it is best if we have a guide or a teacher to help us understand, learn and progress. Progressing spiritually is no exception to this Universal rule, and it is only by the grace of the eternal Guru Principle (the Teaching Principle of God) acting through a Guru in human form, that a student rapidly progresses spiritually.
