Practice Bhaktiyoga with the implied meaning of Sachchidananda Parabrahman’s words : H.H. Sandeep Alshi

H.H. Sandeep Alshi

Brahmanandam Parama Sukhadam Kevalam Jnanmurtim I Dvandvatitam Gaganasadrusham Tatvamasyadi Lakshyam I Ekam Nityam Vimalamachalam Sarvadhee Sakshibhutam, Bhavateetam Trigunarahitam Sadgurum Tam Namami II

I prostrate before that Guru, the Bliss of Brahman, the bestower of Supreme Happiness, who is Knowledge Absolute, transcending the pairs of opposites, expansive like the sky, the goal indicated by the great sayings like ‘Thou art That’, the one eternal, pure, unchanging, the witness of functions of the intellect, one who has transcended all bhavas (Mental states) and the three gunas (Sattva, Raja and Tama). Salutations to that Holy Guru.

Shri Guru is called ‘Bhavateet’, meaning one who has transcended bhav. Jagadguru Sachchidananda Parabrahman (Dr) Athavale, who is working for the salvation of mankind, is also in such a state of Brahman, which is beyond the state of bhav.

Through a Nadipatti reading on 5.5.2018, Maharshi Mayan said, ‘Sachchidananda Parabrahman (Dr) Jayant Athavale is a partial form of Shrikrushna and He has Incarnated on Earth only for the mission of establishing Dharma’.

Shrikrushna says in Shrimadbhagwadgeeta (3.22) :

Na me Parthasti kartavyam trishu lokeshu kinchana,

Nanavaptam avaptavyam varta eva cha karmani I

Meaning : In all the three worlds, O’ Partha ! There is no duty whatsoever for Me (to fulfil); nothing remains unachieved or to be achieved, yet I continue to perform action.

Sachchidananda Parabrahman (Dr) Athavale, who is like Shrikrushna, is not really required to perform any karma. Yet He is working tirelessly even today at the age of 81, only for the welfare of the seekers and for the seekers to experience the ‘Hindu Rashtra’.

Since Sachchidananda Parabrahman (Dr) is in a supreme nirgun spiritual state, He is not even required to experience the sagun state of bhav awakening. And yet, He is experiencing it and is narrating the importance of Bhaktiyoga from His own experiences. It is as if He is impressing on the minds of the seekers that even if a seeker is following the Paths of Karmayoga or Jnanyoga, his spiritual journey cannot be complete without following the Path of Bhaktiyoga.

In the coming severe adverse times, we cannot even be certain if we will survive or not. However, God has assured us in Shrimadbhagwadgeeta (9.31) :

Na me Bhaktaha pranashyati I

Meaning : My devotee shall not perish.

If somone wants to become a devotee of God, he/she should earnestly try to increase his/her devotion right away. Sachchidananda Parabrahman (Dr) Athavale has elaborated on the importance of devotion from the above article so that it gets impressed on the minds of the seekers.

It is also understood from the articles written by Shri Vishnu-form Sachchidananda Parabrahman (Dr) Athavale that He is still learning at every stage of His life despite having reached Absoluteness.

From this, we realise how seekers should continually keep their curiosity and learning attitude awakened while performing sadhana (Spiritual practice).

Seekers who are not devotional by nature find it difficult to make efforts to increase devotion. Since Sachchidananda Parabrahman (Dr) Athavale Himself has tried to propagate Bhaktiyoga and is always interested in the spiritual progress of seekers, His words in a way amount to an unexpressed resolve of increase in the devotion of seekers becoming active. Hence, if seekers also sincerely try to increase their devotion, it will definitely benefit them. His yearning about God-realisation for the seekers is far more than that of the seekers themselves. No matter how much gratitude we express at the Holy feet of such Gurumouli, it will not suffice !

– Sanatan’s Saint, H.H. Sandeep Alshi (7.6.2023)

  • Sachchidananda Parabrahman has elaborated the importance of devotion so that it gets impressed on the minds of seekers !
  • Individual spiritual experiences of seekers published in SanatanPrabhat are according to the Principle – ‘Where there is bhav (Spiritual emotion), there is God’. It is not that every individual will have similar experiences.
  • According to the ancient and profound Nadibhavishya, the Saptarshis have written the future of every individual.
