Terminology used & Notes

Instructions to seekers and request to readers and well-wishers

Due to the coronavirus pandemic, no fuction was organised to celebrate the Janmotsav of Paratpar Guru (Dr.) Athavale this year. To provide Bliss to seekers, photographs from various earlier fuctions organised have been published in this Issue.

Preserve this Issue

Seekers should preserve the Special Issues of 1-15 May, 16-31 May and 1-15 June of Fortnightly English ‘Sanatan Prabhat’ on the Janmotsav of Paratpar Guru (Dr.) Athavale, the form of Shrimannarayan. These Issues contain articles on the uniqueness of Paratpar Guru (Dr.) Athavale’s Divine mission. After reading these Issues, those who want to give them away, should contact the distributors of ‘Sanatan Prabhat’.

Handle and preserve Special Issues carefully

Due to the coronavirus pandemic last year, our Periodicals could not be printed for many months. At that time, seekers had the support of only Sanatan’s Texts and the earlier Issues. This gives us an idea of the likely situation in the adverse times. Special Issues in colour that contain Janmotsav matter have been printed on good quality paper. Thus, seekers will be able to preserve these over the next few years of the adverse times. Some suggestions on the care to be taken in handling these are given ahead.

1. After reading the Special Issues, keep them in plastic bags.

2. Once a year, keep these Issues in sunlight for 10 minutes. Do not put these back into the bags immediately after keeping them in sunlight, wait for sometime to bring these to room temperature.

3. These Issues have special photographs of Paratpar Guru (Dr.) Athavale and Saints, which easily awaken the bhav of seekers; hence, these should not be used for removing covering, etc.

Negative Energies : Positive as well as negative energies are active in the environment. Positive energies assist humans in performing virtuous tasks and negative energies cause distress. Vedas, Puranas and various Scriptures mention about demons creating obstacles in the Yajnas (Sacrificial fires) of Sages and Ascetics in the ancient times.

Spiritual distress : This means the person has negative vibrations. If he has 50% or more vibrations, it means ‘severe’ distress. If the vibrations are between 30 & 49%, it is ‘moderate’ distress; if the vibrations are less than 30%, it is ‘mild’ distress. Spiritual distress is caused by spiritual reasons such as destiny, distress due to departed ancestors, etc.

Readers may please note

Paratpar Guru (Dr.) Athavale, Shrisatshakti (Mrs.) Binda Singbal and Shrichitshakti (Mrs.) Anjali Gadgil have never said they are Incarnations. Maharshi has said in one Nadipatti – ‘Paratpar Guru (Dr.) Athavale is an Incarnation of Shri Vishnu; Shrisatshakti (Mrs.) Binda Singbal and Shrichitshakti (Mrs.) Anjali Gadgil are Incarnations of Shri Mahalakshmidevi’.

Since the Editor of ‘Sanatan Prabhat’ Group of Periodicals has bhav towards the Maharshi, we have reproduced Maharshi’s words as per His instructions.

We are unable to publish our regular columns in this Issue due to space constraints.

The spiritual experiences of seekers published are personal in nature. It is not necessary that everyone will have similar experiences.

Individual spiritual experiences of seekers published here are according to the Principle – ‘Where there is bhav (Spiritual emotion), there is God’. It is not that every individual will have similar experiences.
