Mr Virendra Soni, a devotee of Deity Shiva and a devout Hindu from Jaipur attains Sainthood 

H.H. (Mr) Virendra Soni

Jaipur (Rajasthan) – On 30th November 2021, while on a tour to Jaipur, Shrichitshakti (Mrs) Anjali Gadgil informed Mr Varid Soni (Varid means one who is alert) that She would come to meet the members of the Soni family. The Soni family made arrangements with a bhav that a highly evolved Saint would be coming to their home. Upon reaching, Shrichitshakti (Mrs) Anjali Gadgil performed Arati of the Shivalinga (Deity Shiva’s sacred symbol) that Mr Virendra Soni had brought from Mount Kailash. Seekers accompanying Shrichitshakti (Mrs) Anjali Gadgil began clicking pictures and shooting a video on the pretext of recording the Arati.

After performing Arati, Shrichitshakti (Mrs) Anjali Gadgil told Mr Virendra Soni that She would take his interview to know about the sadhana he had performed so far. Even though it was not a part of the initial schedule for the tour, Shrichitshakti (Mrs) Anjali Gadgil keenly listened to him and appreciated his spiritual journey. At the end, Shrichitshakti (Mrs) Anjali Gadgil told his family members that he had performed spiritual practice with bhav and devotion while fulfilling his worldly duties staying at home (rather than in an Ashram). He read many Holy texts and after carefully studying and understanding their implied meaning, he started compiling certain aspects despite his old age. He has unwavering faith in Deity Shiva. Despite being confined at home, he made dedicated efforts to develop and intensify bhav, and as a result, attained Sainthood. Thus, he was declared a Saint on that day. The hearts of his family members were filled with joy upon hearing this blissful news.
