Adverse times are also the leela of God and let us face these times by surrendering unto Paratpar Guru (Dr.) Athavale, Shrisatshakti (Mrs.) Binda Singbal and Shrichitshakti (Mrs.) Anjali Gadgil

Only when Arjun surrendered at the feet of Shrikrushna, he found his way and fought the war by getting rid of all fears !

Man has ‘I’-ness; but no one knows who that ‘I’ is ! During the adverse times, seekers have to fight on many levels. Some have family problems, some have social problems, some have financial problems, some have physical problems, some have psychological problems and some have intellectual problems. God is testing man through the adverse times.

We have to pass this test and obtain the grace of Paratpar Guru (Dr.) Athavale, who is the form of Shri Vishnu. We want to become like the monkeys of Shriram and the Pandavs of Shrikrushna.

Adverse times are a war-like situation for all of us. It is our spiritual practice to face it. This test given by Shri Vishnu is the test of our destiny and accumulated give-and-take-account. It is also the test of our devotion and faith in the Guru. Although this exam is difficult, the result of this is very sweet.

For this reason, let us understand what is the relationship between the three Gurus and seekers of Sanatan.

1. There is no one in this world who can understand the leela of Shri Vishnu !

When Shri Vishnu, the guardian of the Universe, assumed the Incarnation of Shrikrushna, He said to Arjun – Neither celestial Gods nor the great Sages know my origin, such is my leela (Divine play). I am the source from which the Gods and great Seers come. – Shrimadbhagawadgeeta, Chapter 10, Verse 2

1A. No one in Kaliyug has the ability to fathom the Divine mission of Paratpar Guru (Dr.) Athavale, who is an Incarnation of Shri Vishnu : No one can understand God’s leela. Similarly, there is no one in Kaliyug who can fathom the Divine mission of Paratpar Guru (Dr.) Athavale, who is an Incarnation of Shri Vishnu. Since Sages, Saints and devotees know this, instead of trying to figure out what will be God’s next leela, they should just experience His leela blissfully and obtain spiritual experiences from it.

1B. All events from the beginning of Sanatan till now and Dharmaprasar got done by Paratpar Guru (Dr.) Athavale is the leela of Shriman Narayan : It has been 31 years since Sanatan’s mission commenced. Sanatan Sanstha getting established in the western part of India, Paratpar Guru (Dr.) Athavale finding each seeker and moulding him/her, teaching how to perform spiritual practice in stages and as per the significance of time, writing of Spiritual texts, publishing ‘Sanatan Prabhat’ Periodicals, conducting Spiritual discourses and satsangs (Spiritual meetings) in various towns and villages, organising over 1,000 Hindu Rashtra-Jagruti meetings, conducting Dharmajagruti (Awakening on Dharma) campaigns, spreading Spirituality through websites, spreading Spirituality abroad as well as organising ‘Hindu Rashtra’ Conventions – all this is the leela of Shriman Narayan.

2. Bhagawan Shri Vishnu and His two Shaktis – The mission of Shrisatshakti and Shrichitshakti

2A. The Divine inspiration generated in everyone’s soul to connect with Paratpar Guru (Dr.) Athavale is ‘Shrichitshakti’ and the faith developed in the soul for Paratpar Guru (Dr.) Athavale is ‘Shrisatshakti’ : Two Names for the Shakti (Divine Energy) of Bhagawan Shri Vishnu are – Shrisatshakti (Mrs.) Binda Singbal and Shrichitshakti (Mrs.) Anjali Gadgil ! These two are ‘Shrisatshakti’ and ‘Shrichitshakti’ in the form of the Principle. All seekers are performing spiritual practice. For some reason or the other, we started performing spiritual practice and got connected with Paratpar Guru (Dr.) Athavale. The Divine inspiration generated in the soul of each of us to connect with Him is ‘Shrichitshakti’. In a short period, after getting connected with Paratpar Guru (Dr.) Athavale, the faith created in each of us for Him is ‘Shrisatshakti’.

2B. The inspiration to attend Hindu Rashtra-Jagruti Sabhas is ‘Shrichitshakti’ and upon listening to the guidance, generating the thought of doing something for Dharma is ‘Shrisatshakti’ : We think that thousands of people attended Hindu Rashtra-Jagruti Sabhas; but actually they came because Paratpar Guru (Dr.) Athavale gave them the inspiration to attend these Sabhas. This inspiration is ‘Shrichitshakti’. Inspired people could sit for hours together and listen to the guidance with rapt attention, and the thoughts of doing something for Dharma developed in their mind – this is ‘Shrisatshakti’.

2C. Paratpar Guru (Dr.) Athavale getting satseva performed from the spiritually curious people in society through the medium of ‘Shrichitshakti’ and ‘Shrisatshakti’ : Be it a satsang (Spiritual discourse) or bhav-satsang (Satsang to enhance bhav), be it well-wishers in society or advertisers, be it an advocate fighting a court case or an activist fighting to protect Dharma, Paratpar Guru (Dr.) Athavale got satseva performed from them through the medium of ‘Shrichitshakti’ and ‘Shrisatshakti’. All seekers are the mediums of Shriman Narayan Paratpar Guru (Dr.) Athavale, ‘Shrichitshakti’ and ‘Shrisatshakti’.

In fact, the three Gurus of Sanatan got the mission of Dharmasansthapana (Reinstatement of Dharma) performed from all the seekers as as their leela and will continue to do so.

3. Arrival of the adverse times is God’s leela and this will be a testing time for seekers since Bhagawan Shri Vishnu will be creating many situations in the lives of seekers through His Yoga-Maya !

The calamitous adverse times have begun all over the world and the severity of the adverse times will increase gradually. If everything that has happened in the life of seekers till now is God’s leela, then the adverse times too are God’s leela. During the adverse times, there will always be a dilemma of ‘Should I do this or do that ?’, ‘Should I listen to my mind or to the Saints ?’

Bhagawan Shri Vishnu is going to create many situations in the life of seekers with His Yoga-Maya. Therefore, this will be a test for the devotee-seekers of Sanatan. In such a case, without any worry if a seeker takes every step with firm faith in Paratpar Guru (Dr.) Athavale (who is an Incarnation of Shri Vishnu), Shrisatshakti (Mrs.) Binda Singbal and Shrichitshakti (Mrs.) Anjali Gadgil, God will take care of that seeker in every way. That is the truth !

4. Enemies and friends of seekers during the adverse times

4A. During the adverse times, ‘doubts’ and ‘negative thoughts’ are the enemies of seekers : Now the times are such that, there is no room for doubts and negative thoughts. These are our enemies, which thrust their way in us and remain there due to our personality defects and ego.

If these enemies are not eliminated in time, they will create a subtle negative covering on us during any difficult situation. Consequently, we will feel, ‘Why can’t I see some light, why can’t I find a way ?’ Even then, we do not leave doubting and negative thinking.

4B. During the adverse times, ‘faith’ and ‘attitude of surrender’ are the friends of seekers : During the adverse times, every step should be taken cautiously. Actually there is no time to think. In the past, the pace of time used to change every day, but now it is changing every hour. Everyone is wondering – ‘Will I survive such dangerous adverse times ?’ When we are overwhelmed by these frightening thoughts, faith and attitude of surrender are our only true friends. During the adverse times, God will test the seekers through the medium of the three Gurus of Sanatan. The Guru tests His disciple and also shows him how to pass the test. To pass this test, the three Gurus have shown the seekers the path of faith and attitude of surrender.

4C. This flow of the adverse times is determined by God and no one has the 9energy to stop it, and the only way to survive the adverse times is to surrender to the Guru’ : God has determined the flow of the adverse times. No one has theenergy to stop this flow. When the Sudarshan-chakra (A disc-like weapon used by Shri Vishnu and His Incarnation Shrikrushna) takes off from Shri Vishnu’s little finger, it comes back to His little finger only after accomplishing the assigned task. The adverse times are the Sudarshan-chakra of Paratpar Guru (Dr.) Athavale, who is a form of Shri Vishnu. We have no choice but to face the adverse times. Only when Arjun surrendered at the feet of Shrikrushna, he found his way and fought the war by getting rid of all fears and negative thoughts. The only option we have is to surrender to Paratpar Guru (Dr.) Athavale. He knows how to save seekers from these adverse times. Let us have faith – So far, Paratpar Guru (Dr.) Athavale has guided us on this journey and will continue guiding us throughout this journey. Let
us surrender at His holy feet and face the adverse times.

5. Prayer unto the Holy feet of Sanatan’s Gurus : O’ Paratpar Guru (Dr.) Athavale, a form of Shri Vishnu, O’ Shrisatshakti (Mrs.) Binda Singbal and O’ Shrichitshakti (Mrs.) Anjali Gadgil, we pray unto Your Holy feet – May You show the seekers the way to survive the adverse times on the strength of spiritual practice. We are ignorant and foolish. We do not understand anything. You only get spiritual practice performed from us. We seekers have surrendered at Your Holy feet. You are the path, You are the goal and You are the Lord of time. We earnestly request You to accept our prayers, help us survive the adverse times and bestow upon us the fortune of witnessing the dawn of the ‘Hindu Rashtra’ ! – Mr. Vinayak Shanbhag, Sanatan Ashram, Ramnathi, Goa.
