The Yogiraj of the Three Worlds has incarnated on the Earth !

Paratpar Guru Dr. Athavale had been unable to step out of his room since the last 15 years. As per Maharshi’s instructions, He was able to participate in the Rathotsav and meet all seekers after many years. He was able to experience indescribable Anand (Bliss) upon seeing the seekers !

This is exactly what is depicted in these photographs. ‘Even God feels eager to meet His devotees’, this is the experience one gets on seeing the joy on His face !

He who has control over the Panchamahabhuta, whose aura is Divine and radiant, whose Divine smile captures the mind, whose expression enriched with maternal love assures seekers, whose mere Darshan eliminates many obstacles – that Shrimannarayan-form Gurudev is the soul of seekers. Let us all have His Darshan in radiant postures of the Guru in Shri Vishnu-form to our mind’s content.

Even Shrimannarayan’s eyes welled upon seeing seekers eagerly waiting to meet God during the Rathotsav

Mr Vinayak Shanbhag

How can these moments be described ! Moments of life’s goals being fulfilled, moments of Shrimannarayan’s Darshan ! Shrimannarayan was eagerly waiting to meet the devotees and the devotees were standing with folded hands to meet Shrimannarayan. It was the meeting of jiva (Embodied soul) with Shiv ! A meeting of the soul with the Supreme soul ! Meeting of the devotees with Narayan ! Seekers experienced these Divine moments at the beginning of the Rathotsav, which commenced from Sanatan’s Ashram at Ramnathi. Seekers were standing on either side along the path to have Darshan of Shri Vishnu-form Gurumouli and to pay obeisance. As the Divine Chariot of Shrimannarayan-form Gurudev approached the seekers slowly, they were overwhelmed with bhav. By the Divine sight of Shrimannarayan-form Gurudev, Shrisatshakti (Mrs) Binda Singbal and Shrichitshakti (Mrs) Anjali Gadgil (who were with Him), seekers’ bhav was awakened and they were tearful. God too longs for bhav. Even Shrimannarayan’s eyes welled upon seeing the seekers looking at Him with bhav. He waved His hand, paid obeisance, smiled, tears of bhav started flowing from His eyes as well. For almost 10 minutes, till the Chariot passed the Ramnathi Ashram premises, tears of bhav kept flowing. These were the moments when it appeared as if God had descended from Vaikuntha on His Chariot to delight His devotees with His Darshan. – Mr Vinayak Shanbhag

Why Saints refer to Paratpar Guru (Dr) Athavale as an ‘Incarnation’ !

Paratpar Guru (Dr) Athavale has never claimed that He is an Incarnation. Neither does Sanatan Sanstha call Him so. It is the Saptrashi who have said in the Nadipattis that Paratpar Guru (Dr) Athavale is an Incarnation of God. Nadibhavishya is an ancient and well-established branch of Astrology. According to this, the Saptrashi have written the destiny of every individual.

H.H. OmUlaganathan from Tamil Nadu reads the Jivanadipatti. Saptrashi have written in the Jivanadipatti that Paratpar Guru (Dr) Athavale is the Incarnation of Shri Vishnu. As instructed by Saptarshi through the Nadipatti, Paratpar Guru (Dr) Athavale has dressed in Shri Vishnu’s attire for this celebration.

The Editor of Sanatan Prabhat has bhav (Spiritual emotion) unto the Saptrashi, and hence, we are publishing their messages here.
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

His mere Darshan eliminates all obstacles – that Shrimannarayan-form Gurudev is the soul of seekers !
Notes : Paratpar Guru (Dr) Athavale has never claimed that He is Incarnation. It is the Maharshi who have said in Nadipatti that Paratpar Guru (Dr) Athavale is Incarnation of God. The Editor of Sanatan Prabhat has bhav unto Maharshi and hence, we are publishing Maharshi’s messages (Conveyed through Nadipatti reading) in this special issue.
