Sharad Purnima...

(1 Vote)

Sharad Purnima: The mystic of all mystics, the siddh of all siddhs, the yogi of all yogis, Mul Akshar Murti Shri Gunatitanand Swami (Mulji Sharma), the choicest devotee of Bhagwan Swaminarayan was born on Sharad Punam, Samvat 1841 (1785 CE). He granted 'wealth' by blessing spiritually 'awake' devotees with God-realization. In Samvat 1866 (20 January 1810 CE), Bhagwan Swaminarayan held a grand yagna in Dabhan near Kheda, specially to initiate Mulji as a sadhu...

 

Also known as 'Kojaagari Punam,' the festival is celebrated on Aso sud 15 - Purnima. Lakshmi, the goddess of wealth moves around in the night sky, asking `Ko jaagrati' searching for people below who are awake. In Sanskrit, `Ko jaagrati' means, ' who is awake?' And to those who are awake she gifts wealth. 

 

Sentiments: The spiritual import of 'Jaagrati' (awake) is to remain vigilant. In Vachanamrut Gadhada III-9, Bhagwan Swaminarayan elaborates on this vigilance. He says that the vigilance in one's heart is the gateway to the Lord's divine abode. 

Symbolic Importance: Just as the night sky of Sharad Punam is clear and suffused with lunar resplendence, the aspirant should similarly endeavor to purify his 'antahkaran.' ­­

 

Ritual: 'Dudha-Pauva' - parched rice soaked in milk - is offered to God.

The Swaminarayan Sampraday celebrates the festival with great fervor in all mandirs at night. Devotees sing kirtans and extol the glory of Aksharbrahman Gunatitanand Swami. Five artis are performed during the assembly. Pramukh Swami Maharaj usually celebrates Sharad Punam in Gondal mandir - built on the sacred site of Gunatitanand Swami's cremation...

 

 

 

 

Prabhudasbhai was initiated as Sadhu by Guruhari Yogiji Maharaj on Sharadpoornima, 10th October 1965. While proffering diksha on His chosen devotee, Guruhari Yogiji Maharaj proclaimed, 'This diksha is like the diksha proffered upon M.A.M. Gunatitanand Swami by Lord Swaminarayan in Dabhan (the place where M.A.M. Gunatitanand Swami was initiated into sainthood).' These words, coming out of Yogiji's divine mouth, were not mere eulogy. These words were futuristic and were spoken by a visionary. It showed the path which the prospect had to take in the future. True to this prophecy, Swamiji became the fifth spiritual successor of the legacy of Lord Swaminarayan. He resolutely followed the regimen of Guruhari Yogiji Maharaj's volition. To streamline the resolution, He founded Yogi Divine Society...

 

He toiled day and night to foster the principle of Atmiyata (Spiritual Affinity with one and all) which is just the other way to foster the principle of samp, suhradbhav and ekta. Swamiji has loved all. He is known as the most secular saint in the contemporary world. Swamiji identifies all with Yogiji Maharaj and that is the reason he is acclaimed as a universal saint who strives to cultivate humanity, devotion and harmony in an individual, in the society, in the nation and in the world. His dictum is, 'O Lord! Whether the other person becomes Atmiya (spiritually harmonious) or not, please make me Atmiya, (spiritually harmonious)!' meaning, a devotee irrespective of the surroundings, circumstances, nature, temperament has to be harmonious and devoted to His Lord and the spiritual master. Today, because of His divine prowess and sublime selfless love, there are thousands of youths whose lives are the model of true piety, devoid of vices...

 

His magnanimity has led the communion to live the life in accordance to the set principles of Lord Swaminarayan and the saints without artificial persuasion...

 

His life and work could be more justified when we navigate through the activities inspired by Him, carried out under the auspices of Yogi Divine Society...
