Gurupournima is the day to express gratitude unto the Guru. On this day, every theist Hindu offers body-mind-wealth as per his ability to his spiritual Guru. Offering these has paramount importance in Spirituality. This is not a one day offering that the Guru Principle expects from a disciple. What it expects is a comprehensive sacrifice (every possession including body and mind). Attaining Moksha (Final Liberation) is not possible without such a sacrifice; hence, those desirous of spiritual progress must make a comprehensive sacrifice.
Whether it is theist Hindus who abide by Dharma in personal life or Hindus who are social workers, patriots and dedicated volunteers, they may find it difficult to make such a sacrifice a part of their spiritual practice. However, they may find making such a sacrifice for serving the Nation & Dharma easier.
In the present times, being active to reinstate Dharma is the best samashti sadhana. Reinstating Dharma effectively means efforts to make the social structure and Nation-building process exemplary. To accomplish this, it is necessary to teach society how to abide by Dharma. For setting up an ideal system of governance, legal struggle is unavoidable. Do not forget history – It was the comprehensive sacrifice of Arya Chanakya, Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj that brought success to their mission of reinstating Dharma.
O’ Hindus dedicated to serving Dharma ! From this Gurupournima itself, prepare to reinstate Dharma, meaning, establish a Hindu Rashtra on the foundation of Dharma and be assured that you will progress spiritually as expected by the Guru Principle !

Become a devotee to experience the Guru’s Priti-enriched shelter of grace !
Guru has Supreme import-ance in the life of a seeker. While perfor-ming spiritual practice, a seeker graduates to being a disciple.
The Guru ensures the wellbeing of the disciple who obeys Him and has sacrificed his body-mind-wealth. Such a seeker is perpetually shielded by the Guru’s Priti-enriched shelter of His grace, and hence, is unaffected by any calamity. The adverse times now present a golden opportunity to seekers to experience the Guru’s Priti-enriched shelter of grace. In the near future, we will have to face enormous difficulties. It is time we become aware of this stark reality. To survive the adverse times, let us surrender unto the Holy feet of Shrimannarayan form Paratpar Guru (Dr.) Athavale with earnest bhav, and try to perform spiritual practice to the best of our ability, so that we become His true disciples.

Participate in the mission of reinstating Dharma and thus fulfil the purpose of life !
When anarchy is rampant on earth, God incarnates and protects His devotees. Bhagawan Shrikrushna has assured His devotees – ‘न मे भक्तः प्रणश्यति ।’ (My devotees shall not perish). Incarnations such as Shriram and Shrikrushna protected their devotees through their Divine plays.
Shriram established the Ramrajya (Divine Rule) that ensured the well-being of His subjects. Shrikrushna defeated the evil Kouravs and established Dharmarajya (Rule of Dharma).
The epic mission of reinstating Dharma has been commenced by Shrimannarayan form Paratpar Guru (Dr.) Athavale. Just as the monkey soldiers in Shriram’s army emancipated themselves by participating in Shriram’s mission, you too should participate in Paratpar Guru (Dr.) Athavale’s Divine mission of reinstating Dharma and fulfil the purpose of your life !
