1. Paratpar Guru (Dr.) Athavale gifting a photo of His Holy feet to a lady-seeker due to her bhav

In 2001 at Ponda, Goa a seeker was diagnosed with cancer. She repeatedly had the spiritual experience that Paratpar Guru (Dr.) Athavale is always with her in the subtle dimension. Due to her bhav, she would be blissful always despite her illness. Then, as per her wish, Paratpar Guru (Dr.) Athavale gifted her a photo of His Holy feet.

2. Paratpar Guru (Dr.) Athavale raised His Holy feet to help H.H. Phadke Aji (who was not well) to bow and pay obeisance to Him by placing Her head on His feet

In 2003, Phadke Aji (Late H.H. Vimal Phadke Aji) came to Sanatan’s Miraj Ashram. She had a paralysis attack there and was bedridden. Paratpar Guru (Dr.) Athavale would visit Her daily. H.H. Phadke Aji wished to pay obeisance to Him by placing Her head on His Holy feet. However, this was not possible due to Her physical condition, and for this she felt bad. One day when Paratpar Guru (Dr.) Athavale came to meet Her, She expressed Her wish. He replied, “Is this all you wish for ? Ok. Here are my feet. Fulfil your wish”. He then raised His Holy feet up in front of Phadke Aji so that She could bow and rest Her head on Paratpar Guru (Dr.) Athavale’s feet.

3. Fulfilling a seeker’s wish to take a photo of Paratpar Guru (Dr.) Athavale

A seeker came to meet Paratpar Guru (Dr.) Athavale. While talking to Him, the seeker choked with bhav (Spiritual emotion). He asked Paratpar Guru (Dr.) Athavale if he could click His photo. There was another seeker in the room at that time. Paratpar Guru (Dr.) Athavale asked that seeker to click a good photo of this seeker. He then asked the visiting seeker to sit beside Him and told the other seeker to click a photo.

4. Paratpar Guru (Dr.) Athavale assuring a seeker that He lives in his heart

Once a visiting seeker asked Paratpar Guru (Dr.) Athavale for His photo. Paratpar Guru (Dr.) Athavale replied, “Why do you need a photo ? You have so much spiritual emotion that I will come and live in your heart”.

Paratpar Guru (Dr.) Athavale’s analysis about the changes that defy the intellect

About various good and bad spiritual experiences, the facts in my context are as per Jnaneshwari (4.81) (A Holy text written by Sant Jnaneshwar in Marathi). Its meaning is – ‘Even though these have originated from me, I am not their creator’, effectively meaning that this has happened because of my existence. ‘Me’ here refers to God. ‘I am not their creator’ means doership is not associated with me.

A beautiful example of this aspect is when the sun rises, everyone wakes up and the flowers bloom, etc. This happens merely by the existence of the sun. The sun neither wakes anyone up nor does it tell the flowers to bloom !

Just as the rain falling from the sky bathes the earth with cold water, the Saints too shower their Priti on everyone equally !
