Param Sadguru Shree Gajanan Maharaj

Chapter 12

1.       I bow to Shree and pray to the ultimate teacher, I salute him three times

2.       Hail great teacher, the idol of kindness, you are Lord Ganapati himself, your fame is everywhere, I pray to you

3.       By praying to you, the prayers reach all the Gods, It reaches all the forms of Gods

4.       By sighting of Shree, One has sighting of all Gods, doing worship of Shree is equivalent to worshipping of all Gods

5.       There is not a grain of doubt in this, every word is nothing but truth, all the doubts vanish from the mind and the light of Truth shines

6.       Here this belief in the Light is needed, then only there is a possibility of knowing the road ahead

7.       If you doubt this, you will remain where you are, you will not move ahead even an inch, remember this in your mind

8.       What was proved, many people experienced it, I also wrote about it humbly

9.       If you believe this and remember this, then you will achieve something, otherwise you will despair in vain, hence this warning

10.   Whatever was told to Shree, revelations which took place, Shree got divine knowledge, these events which happened

11.   Shree only revealed them and described them in a letter which he wrote to Peshkar

12.   There were seven events, Shree wrote about them and as a footnote gave very valuable advice and instructions

13.   Shree got himself referred as ‘Son of Man’ in this letter, he used a very subtle connotation

14.   The message which was written as a footnote in the letter was as follows

15.   Whatever has been told about Son of Man, is being communicated without altering a single word

16.   By swearing by the holy feet of the Great Teacher, all the truth is being told as it is

17.   The above lines are not words, but they are pure language themselves, it will be clear from the wordings

18.   Do not bring doubt in your mind about a single word, this is being communicated to you purposefully

19.   My holy form is being shown so clearly only to you today

20.   The reason for this is that I love you very much and have great affection for you, hence I told you

21.   Keep this royal secret a secret, today you are being made aware of the true introduction of the Son of Man

‘Ayanjanti Ma Mudhe

Manush Tanumatrusham’

22.   Believe in these words without any reservations or doubts, because these are divine words

23.   It is incomprehensible to the human mind, but it will be proven to everybody by experience

24.   This letter of Shree is an invaluable treasure, It is a great gift from Shree to his followers/disciples

25.   The revealment of mystery is in this letter, by making Peshkar as the recipient, this is a valuable keepsake for all the people

26.   Instead of writing words in the letter, Shree wrote language itself and did not leave any room for doubts and asked everyone to believe it

27.    In a natural way, seven events were told in this letter, in religious matters, the number ‘seven’ has special importance

28.   Still all the stars have to align, Shree knew this, hence Shree ordered that this should be kept a royal secret for the time being

29.   While doing bestowment with free hands, some bestowments are kept reserved

30.   While showing all the sightings, a thin curtain is kept on it with a purpose

31.   By this bestowments, one attains a higher form and understanding and then we start thinking that we are the most superior amongst everyone

32.   By this feeling, false pride is bred and the followers are responsible for their own downfall, hence some bestowments are kept reserved

33.   ‘Everyone has to do his own upliftment’ by taking help of these words of Lord, Shree tells everyone

34.   Shree warns us ‘We have shown kindness to you and given you bestowments to you, the realization of this fact is clear in your conscience, right?’

35.   ‘What you got, try to be worthy of it’ – these words of Shree are everywhere and they are very provocative and indicative

36.   The great fortune which he got, the divinity which he acquired, Shree did not even his close people get any idea about it

37.   In support of fulfillment of his pledge, for the upliftment and betterment of mankind, what was extremely needed

38.   Such an tool, Shree created and laid the foundation of his great work

39.   1944 Sept 27th – on the day of Dasara, at around 9 o’clock in the morning, Shree put water on his guru’s feet

40.   ‘I will reincarnate the Vedas’ – by doing this pledge, on that day itself in the afternoon, Shree composed the holy versed tool

41.   The seven versed message of the religion – ‘Saptashloki Dharmadesh’ – Shree composed it using minimum words

42.   The road to mankind’s upliftment and betterment is clearly mentioned in these verses

43.   These Shree’s verses are in Sanskrit language, there is great skill in its composition, the gist of the Vedas is in the verses

44.   The number of verses is seven, the number seven has special importance and significance in many ways

45.   The verses of Shree which were originally in Sanskrit, I translated them into Marathi, using one verse per the original verse

46.   The time when this world was created, Lord Brahmadev, the creator, preached about the holy religion through the Vedas

47.   (1) What are good deeds, what is religious study? If you wish to know, amongst all religious books on this subject, Vedas are the foremost

48.   (2) Sometimes the unclear becomes clear by reading religious books, but the most authoritative books on this subject are the Vedas

49.   (3) With the intention of wellbeing and upliftment of everybody, the gist of subjects and matters is embodied in Vedas

50.   (4) The ones who argue without reason, express unholy atheist thoughts, cause unnecessary confusion, will all be destroyed

51.   (5) The ones who are atheist, against the Vedas, talking or preaching against Vedas, the ones who cause confusion will all be destroyed

52.   (6) Holy Fire – Yagna; Donation – Daan; Penance – Taap; Acts – Karma; Self Study – Swadhay :- The professing or practicing of these holy traits or actions is true religion

53.   (7) In these seven verses, is the gist of the Vedas, and Shree shows us the fivefold path to Salvation

54.    Only in the seventh verse, the fivefold path is mentioned, what are the five folds, let us look at the briefly

55.   What is the true religion? What is the gist of all Vedas? What acts should we be performing? This is highlighted in the seventh verse

56.   Vedas are also called ‘Shrutis’ – The orders of the Vedas are while doing holy fire (Yagna) Donation (Taap) and Penance (Yagna), one should do his acts (Karma) and self study (Swadhay)

57.   This is the true religion, this is the gist of all Vedas, by using five words, Shree summarized the gist of Vedas

58.   Every word is valuable, a book can be written on each word, such is the vast meaning and importance of each word

59.   What should we do to do worship of holy fire? How should we do donation? How to do penance and do the acts? What is the meaning of self study?

60.   A brief narration of these questions and what they mean, let us try to comprehend in a summary fashion in a concise way

61.   Yagna means worship of holy fire, offering food and water to the holy fire in a religious structured manner is worship of fire and is termed as ‘Yagna’

62.   The air of atmosphere gets purified by Yagna and happiness and content is acquired by all in the society

63.   Everyone gets wealth and prosperity, untoward and unfortunate events are avoided by practicing the worship of holy fire

64.   The donation of food, clothing and wealth should be given to the deserving and worthy done, donation should be done as per ones means, donation to wrong person is not religious and fruitful

65.   Donation gives wealth and prosperity to the donor, donor is benefited multiple times in relation to his donation, Donation is investment in good deeds and virtues

66.   Doing specific penance on a routine daily basis is called ‘Taap’, ‘Taap’ is very religious and brings good deeds and fortune

67.   Self happiness , self content, self confidence and self strength, one gets benefits of all these by ‘Taap’

68.   The acts laid down by religion are known as ‘Karma’ , one should always do the right deeds and karma

69.   By doing these acts i.e. Karma, man becomes pious and true, he becomes a good being and the background is created

70.   Study and reading of Vedas and such religious books is called ‘ Swadhay’ or self study

71.   By ‘Swadhay’ one gets knowledge, by Swadhay knowledge increases, knowledge become well grounded and firm, such is the importance of Swadhay

72.   In this way, the fivefold path of Shree is narrated in a summary manner

73.   The fivefold path Shree tells is only five words, depth and breadth of each word is vast

74.   In the fivefold path, Shree gave first position to ‘Yagna’ and stress of Shree was also on it

75.   In the study and practice laid down by Vedas, worship of fire has a prominent place and great importance is given to ‘Yagna’

76.   Hence, the work of reincarnation of worship of holy fire – Yagna, Shree took in his hands and his impressive efforts are in progress

77.   From purification of atmosphere to betterment of the society, on all the events, is the influence of ‘Yagna’

78.   World encompassing mind, world encompassing soul, even greater than this is the impact of Acts of ‘Yagna’

79.   The true form of Yagna which has been told in the Rugveda, is simple and easy to follow by all, its definition got changed as time passed by and it took on a different form

80.   It became difficult for the common man to practice and do ‘Yagna’, hence Shree took in his hands the work of simplification of Yagna

81.   In the religious way foretold by Vedas, to do the great Yagna, only Shree used to encourage people

82.   By reincarnating the system of Yagna, Shree swept away all the dust and reincarnated the holy fire

83.   It is the daily duty of everybody to do Agnihotra, hence Shree made the system of Agnihotra

84.   As per the changing times, for the wellbeing of the whole world, the remedy of Agnihotra, Shree told everybody

85.   Agnihotra event is made very simple, at sunrise and sunset, two offerings have to be made to the holy fire

86.   Shree’s message to everyone – ‘The worship of fire, is for all mankind

87.   In every religious sect, in various forms there is worship of Fire most prominently

88.   Hence this worship of fire is a global worship, everybody should do this worship’

89.   This is the message of Shree for the upliftment and wellbeing of all mankind is this holy message

90.   The act of offering two offering to fire, is the basic religion and this is the greatest noble act in all the three times

91.   This simple following of religion does away with great dangers, these are the words of Shree in the holy book of Gita

92.   Because of this Agnihotra, there comes purity in the atmosphere, the air gets purified and pollution is destroyed

93.   When atmosphere becomes pure, everyone becomes prosperous, content spreads everywhere and one’s self becomes pious

94.   One gets health, satisfaction and peace, there is scarcity of nothing, such is the great gains

95.   There will be upliftment of the world, good being of the world, satisfaction and content will spread in the world and global happiness will rise

96.   From daily Agnihotra, there are many benefits and there is great gains to all and all attain their true form

97.   Such experiences are to many, many got health, prosperity wealth are experiences of many

98.   Such is the effect of the first tool only, then how much would be benefits of all five tools

99.   Afterwards Shree revealed the Ten commandments of Vedas, obeying of which is necessary, these are the ten orders of Vedas

100.                        Narration of Ten commands of Vedas is in the Thirteenth episode, the orders of Shree, a very interesting part is this

101.                        By saluting Shree’s feet, I get inspiration, the writing of episode Twelve finished here
