|Ego makes man think that he reigns the world. The present day rulers think that they provide all the comforts to their subjects. The present day rulers have forgotten the Supreme Ruler, Deity Shri Vishnu, who is the Guardian of the world.
Shri Vishnu rests on His Shesha-Shaiyya (The Divine serpent on which He reclines) in Kshirsagar. He has been ruling the earth in each era. He is the Master of not only the earth but the entire Universe. Let us learn about the Ministry of the King of the earth, Shri Mahavishnu.
Bharat (India) does not mean a geographically demarcated Bharat; instead it means the entire earth. Bharat is being ruled by the Lord of Kailash (Range of mountains) Deity Shiva and Adishakti Parvati. Deity Shiva in the form of a flame through the medium of 12 Jyotirlingas, and Adishakti, through the medium of the 51 Shaktipeethas are incessantly protecting the land of Bharat. The members of the Ministry of Shiva-Parvati are – Kalbhairav, Nandi, Shivagan, Devi, Shri Ganesh and Kartikeya – the sons of Shiva, etc. This Chaitanya-enriched Ministry is continuously and selflessly working for the welfare of the devotees.
1A. Some regions of undivided Bharat
Deity Vitthal in Pandharpur, who is worshipped by entire Mahararashtra is truly the Chief Minister (CM) of Maharashtra. Likewise, Tirupati Balaji is the CM of Andhra Pradesh and Telangana, Kashi Vishwanath is the CM of Uttar Pradesh, Dwarakadheesh Shrikrushna is the CM of Gujarat, Deity Hanuman on the Anjanadri Hill (in the city of Hampi) is the CM of Karnataka, Anantapadmanabha Swami in Thiruvananthapuram is the CM of Kerala, Baba Amarnath is the CM of Kashmir, Kedarnath Shiva is the CM of Uttarakhand, Deity Kamakhya is the CM of North-East States, Dakshineshwar Kali is the CM of Bengal, Shrinathji in Nathadwara is the CM of Rajasthan, Shri Mahankaleshwar in Ujjain is the CM of Madhya Pradesh and Shriranganath Swami in Shrirangam is the CM of Tamil Nadu. Mere rememberance of the Names of such Divine CMs awakens bhav (Spiritual emotion).
2. Spies of God
In today’s times, humans are using various means for spying. However, God’s spies are far superior to the human spies. God’s spies are the Panchamahabhuta (Five Cosmic Principles) – Pruthvi, Apa, Tej, Vayu and Akash. They are present everywhere always. Man can hide nothing from them. They keep God informed about all activities of humans; hence, our Scriptures have termed Panchamahabhuta as witnesses.
3. God’s eyes
Sun and moon are the eyes of God. Countries require satellites to keep an eye on human activities; however, the sun and the moon observe everything.The list of this Divine Ministry is very vast. There are many branches and many Deputy Ministers in God’s Ministry. He has given a thought to the past, present and future. We humans speak of five year planning; however, God has thought of Yugas (Eras), Manvantar (306.72 million years), Kalpa (4.32 billion years) and Pralay (Dissolution) and has planned for eternity.
4. Devotees of God and Sanatan’s seekers form the servitors of God’s Ministry on earth
God’s Ministry that functions without ego, without expectations and innocently, can be compared with no other Ministry. God’s devotees, devout Hindus, followers of Dharma and seekers of Sanatan Sanstha have on the instructions of this Ministry participated in the mission of establishing the ‘Hindu Rashtra’ as part of their spiritual practice.
Paratpar Guru (Dr) Athavale is the Divine King for us servitors; Shrisatshakti (Mrs) Binda Singbal and Shrichitshakti (Mrs) Anjali Gadgil are His spiritual heirs. Many in society sarcastically say to seekers – ‘Sanatan’s seekers will establish the Hindu Rashtra. In that case, the Ministers of this Rashtra will also be Sanatan’s seekers !’ Paratpar Guru (Dr) Athavale has moulded seekers in such a manner that they do not have expectation whatsoever of any position, authority, power, publicity, money or property.
