On the occasion of Shrisatshakti (Mrs) Binda Nilesh Singbal’s 55th Birthday (25th September), we present a photo feature on one of the two multifaceted Successors of Sachchidananda Parabrahman (Dr) Jayant Athavale.
Shrisatshakti (Mrs) Binda Singbal’s precious guidance on spiritual practice
1. Who else but Sachchidananda Parabrahman(Dr) Athavale earnestly takes care of seekers in an environment charged with Raja-Tama components !
Every breath that Shri Guru takes is devoted to His beloved seekers. He does not see or think of anything or anyone other than His seekers. Every thought in His mind is about seekers. His life is devoted to the spiritual well-being of seekers. He yearns to teach seekers something new that will help them in their spiritual practice every day. He longs to do something daily that will help seekers achieve Moksha (Final Liberation). The lives of many seekers have transformed for the better due to the immense grace of Sachchidananda Parabrahman (Dr) Athavale. The lives of seekers are full of joy and happiness, and they can breathe freely despite being in an environment charged with Raja-Tama components in this Kaliyug (The present era of strife). Sachchidananda Parabrahman (Dr) Athavale also takes care of every seeker of Sanatan and his family members. Who else on this earth can bestow such unconditional love upon seekers ?
2. The extent of effort put into spiritual practice is directly proportional to the extent of gratitude seekers feel towards Shri Guru
Shri Guru has generously fulfilled all our desires. The extent of effort we put into regular spiritual practice is directly proportional to the extent of gratitude we feel towards Him. There is no place for complacency when it comes to spiritual practice. Seekers should realise that they need to put a lot of effort in their spiritual practice. Shri Guru has made a resolve for every seeker to progress spiritually. He eagerly looks forward to the spiritual progress of seekers. Even small efforts of seekers make Him happy and joyous. In reality, it is His grace that seekers can perform spiritual practice.
When Arjun participated in an event to win over Droupadi, Shrikrushna advised him to be alert and focus on the eye of the fish (the goal). Arjun asked Shrikrushna what He would do. Shrikrushna replied very calmly that He would do something that Arjun could not. (Shrikrushna kept the water steady so that Arjun could easily aim and pierce the eye of the fish).
3. Shri Guru is the crucial pillar of our lives. A jiva (Embodied soul) who performs spiritual practice regularly is the wealthiest soul on earth; so wealthy that its extent is immeasurable !
The lives of many seekers have transformed due to the immense grace of Sachchidananda Parabrahman (Dr) Athavale !
