Ramnath Temple (Ponda), June 21 (Corr.) – I am able to serve Dharma along with looking after my business only due to Sachchidananda Parabrahman (Dr) Athavale, Sant Bhaktaraj Maharaj and Paratpar Guru Pande Maharaj’s guidance. Paratpar Guru Pande Maharaj once told me the definition of Udyojak (entrepreneur). He had said, ‘that which leads to worldly and spiritual uplift is called Dharma. Today, in Kaliyuga, Arthashakti (monetary power) has more influence. Therefore, if you ignore the money, it can harm you. As an entrepreneur, it is your responsibility to ensure the worldly and spiritual progress of your employees.’
Our product Pitambari powder is used to clean idols. Later we started manufacturing various products related to daily worship. It is said, ‘he who conveys the knowledge of God to the society, is dearer to God’. People worship Shani to ward off the problems from the sadesathi (seven and a half year period of Shani influence). So we created Shani Upasana, an incense product and used the wrapper to convey information on how to worship Shani. You can also provide information on the importance of chanting the name of the family deity and Shri Gurudeva Dutt for attaining bliss on your product covers. Then the message of spiritual practice reaches thousands. Nowadays everyone is busy. They think spiritual practice is for old age. Professionals should realize that there are many difficulties in business.
Spiritual practice can help you tide over all these difficulties by God’s grace. The employees in all 15 departments of my company pray and recite the Maruti stotra every day. Along with this, we have planned for 1500 employees to get regular satsang. If the employees in your establishment are sattvik, there will be no corruption. If we get them to start doing spiritual practice, then not only does our profit increase, it also counts as our service to Dharma.
