Tribute to Guruji - Guru Samarpana

Guru Samarpana

ANTAR DARSHAN


In the dark woods of my mind, a directionless journey was on

Endless were the questions that pierced my heart

Fear of not knowing was burning my soul

World appeared as though meaningless

My life boat caught in a tsunami of deep dark ocean waters!!!

Life when I knew not…


A casual encounter only for brief moments

With someone whom I never met before but who knew me “through”

Face reminded me of an ancient sage

Tejas being an aura for the divine child

Expressions revealed burning sincerity and words of wisdom

In touch with the eternal source of bliss ever uninterrupted

Eyes filled with infinite grace and compassion

Divine concern that eclipsed mother’s love

Unwavering determination to transform the world

When I knew not even the meaning of the word “Guru”

An encounter that shook my bosom!!!


I lay defenseless in front of the eyes that see through my soul

Brief be the encounter, revived a connection of several lives

Source of Sun that dispels darkness

Light house that shows path to the shore

Pole star guiding me in the journey through the web of Karma

Could someone love me more than I?

Awed at the dimensions of Guru

As though sun light rushes through when windows open

Mind permeated with Guru’s grace

Founded on Sraddha, began a new leaf in my life story!!!



Numerous were his avatars - mother, father, brother, friend and teacher

Every place being teaching ground – home, ashram, temples, lecture halls, sidewalks and shopping malls…

Uncultured rogue was I filled with anger, desire, ego, greed and what not

Seated on a fearful mind ever restless never content

Infinite is his grace to see a sculpture through this raw rock

Unconventional are his tools – love, compassion and patience

Began the ascetic life of a Guru to bring about transformation in me!!!



Lessons on nurturing the temple called Body

Pranayama techniques to catch the twin called Mind

Gayatri mantra upadesa to go back to the source

Art of greasing the practice with love, devotion and surrender

Revolutionary thoughts – “Freedom from the Known”

Novel ideas – “24x7 Yoga”

Guru’s sankalpa for my “Antar Darshan”

Sutras for blossoming of mind

Human out of uncultured rogue

Divine out of Human

Eternal are the efforts of Guru ever flowing



Guru’s infinite love, my life source

Guru’s leela, subdue of my ego and evolution of surrender

Guru’s krupa, anchoring discrimination in the muddy soil of my mind

Guru’s grace, answers to my asked and unasked questions

Guru’s sadhana, expression of my blossoming mind in life moments

Guru’s will, projects executed through me as instrument

Guru’s sankalpa, his journey with me, for me to gain my grace

Guru, the divine force that filled my life with auspiciousness 



“I” am not alone

This “I” represents thousands of families “Touched by the Grace”

Guru’s tapasya, Harmony, Health and Happiness in our families

Divine will, having written the last chapter, Guru leaving the physical plane



Have I been robbed off my life source?

Have I been thrown into darkness by the loss of all permeating light?

Whom shall I run to share my joys?

Where will I find the bosom of infinite compassion to shed my tears?

Have I lost of my source of discrimination?

Am I lost in the ocean of life and death as an orphan?

In depths of sorrow and grief with a heavy heart, I am…



Strange is my state of mind, counter to his lifelong teachings

Mind deceives itself at the speed of light

Mind engulfs in ignorance with intensity

Guru is beyond time, space and causation and is Satchidananda

Guru is never dead nay can death touch eternity

Guru is a link through several lives

Guru is bound until the moment of absolute freedom

Connect with that eternal source Oh Mind!



Guru’s tapasya, for everyone’s Antar Darshan

Guru’s path, for our absolute freedom

Guru’s teachings, essence of Vedas

Gone is the search for new knowledge

Begins the courageous journey of Sadhana to practice what has been taught

Let us Arise, Awake and stop not until the goal is reached

Offer as oblation our life, wealth and soul into the fire of Sadhana

Smash away thoughts of lethargy and inertia

Burn in the fire of “Vairagya”, all restless thoughts of imbalanced actions

Embrace noble and balanced thoughts as “Abhyasa Yagna”

Unwavering determination and prayers to be the purest instruments of Guru

Discharge duty with sense of freedom

Nurturing health, protecting harmony in relations

Reducing speed of the mind, loosening the grip of emotions, 

Rejoicing in peace and happiness

Sharing fruits of Sadhana

Let us live as Role Models that our Guru aspired us to be

With unbroken sankalpa to surrender at thy lotus feet

Accept reminder of our mortal lives in thy service

Guruve Saranam

Guruve Saranam

Guruve Saranam

Gayathri Mantra Samarpana


Dear All:

Guruji always used to tell me that Guru Mantra and Gayathri Mantra are the foundation in Himalayan Tradition.

After Guruji's demise, it occurred to me that we all start right away chanting one mala (108 times) Gayathri mantra every day and offer it to Guruji as Samarpana during the forthcoming Summer Camp (15th May -21st May 2016)

It is not yet finalised on what day during the camp we will be doing the Samarpana and how (in the form of a homa or otherwise). We will let you know. Those who cannot make it to the camp, they also can take up this Purashcharana and offer it as Samarpana from their respective places.

I shall be grateful if you can kindly respond with your confirmation on this. Your cooperation and understanding will be highly appreciated.

Guru be with you all and guide.

Om Shreem Gurudevaaya Namaha !

Practice:
1.  Sit in a comfortable position by keeping the back, neck and head along the same line.

2.  Do 3 rounds of Naadi Shodana Pranayama (Anulom Vilom).

3.  Focus on Guru Chakra (just above Eyebrow Centre) and chant
     Hiranyagarbhaa Dhaarabdhaam
     Seshou Vyaasaadhi Madhyamaam
     Swami Shree Rama Paadhaanthaam
     Vandhe Guru Paramparaam
     Vandhe Guru Paramparaam
     Vandhe Guru Paramparaam

4.  Focus your attention on Heart Chakra.

5.  Remember the Rishi, Devatha and Chandas
     Om Vishvaamitra Rishi hi
     Savithaa Dhevataa
     Dhevi Gayathri Chhanda ha
     Dhebhyo Namaa mo vayam

6.  Chant 108 Gayathri Mantra staying in Heart Chakra

7.  After completion of 108 Gayathri, chant
     Namasthe Dhevi Gaayathri
     Saavithri Tripadaaksha rey
     A-jarey A-marey Maatha ha
     Traahimaam Bhava Saagaraath
     Traahimaam Bhava Saagaraath
     Traahimaam Bhava Saagaraath

8.  Then chant Gayathri Seersha
      Om Aapo Jyothi Raso Amrutham Brahma Bhoor Bhuvas Swarom (9 times)

9.  Chant Shanti Mantra and come out
Om Sarve Bhavanthu Sukhina ha
Sarve Santhu Niraamayaa ha
Sarve Badraani Pashyanthuu
Maa Kaschith Dhukka Bhaag Bhaveth
Lokaa Samasthaa Sukhino Bhavanthu
Lokaa Samasthaa Sukhino Bhavanthu
Samastha San Mangalaani Bhavanthu
Om Tat Sat

Om Sahanaa Vavathu
Sahanau Bhunakthu
Saha Veeryam Karavaa Vahai
Tejas Vinaa Vadheetha masthu
Maa Vid Dvishaa Vahai
Om Shaanti Shaanti Shaanti hi

Om Poornamadhaf Poornamidham
Poornaath Poorna Mudachyate
Poornasya Poorna Maataaya
Poorna Mewaa Vashishyate
Om Shaanti Shaanti Shaanti hi

Note: As requested earlier, sadhaka's who are joining the Summer Camp are requested to register themselves Online without fail at http://www.sadhanasangama.org/campreg.php . If done already, you may please ignore this.

Guruji during Summer Camp


Dear All,

In continuation to our earlier communication on SST Residential Summer Camp from 15th May to 21st May, you may have probably missed our request to register yourself on the link provided confirming your participation for the Camp. Hence this mail is a gentle reminder for your utmost cooperation and support to do so.

Friends, during one of the occasion, Guruji asked me to take up the responsibility of streamlining the camp activities in a phased manner and the beginning is Online Registration. Unless you all cooperate, this particular task is difficult. Therefore, I seek your cooperation by voluntarily registering yourself at the link below and help me to carry on with the task assigned to me by Guruji. Filling the basic info provided on the link would also help the Ashram Administration to facilitate the basic requirements to the participants without any hassles.


I will really appreciate your cooperation and understanding in this matter.  Thanks

Important Update: I recently got the opportunity to listen to one of Guruji's audio clip which is worth sharing with you all for the important message it contains. Listen to the Audio and happily fill up the online registration form :)

Guruji Pattabhiram left his physical body

Guruji Pattabhiram


Our Beloved Guruji Pattabhiram, has left his physical body on 16 March 2016. Guruji cremation were carried out at his Ashram, Sadhana Dhama on 17th March 2016.

Remebering Swami Veda Bharti's message at this time for all of us to remember....

What is the ultimate in spirituality? – That when you have learned to liberate yourself, you seek to continue to use body after body for the benefit of others, for the elevation of others, for the enlightenment of others. To pull those out of the well of darkness who are still lying there at the bottom and wailing and crying and thrashing in sorrows and frustrations. The Guru never abandons. The Guru never leaves us incomplete. Whether embodied or disembodied, he will continue to grant his grace.

May the Guru grace be shower on all of us and let us continue to March Ahead on the Path He has showed to us....Vande Guruparamparam....

Note: Summer camp will be held at the earlier announced date (15th May - 21st May) at Sadhana Dhama Ashram. All Sadhaka's are requested to come and attend with their family as we all now know there is someone dear is waiting for us... You may please register for the camp through http://www.sadhanasangama.org/memberreg.php if not done already.

Sadhana Sangama's Residential Summer Camp - 2016

Dear Sadhakas

Hope this email finds you in good health filled with grace.

As you might be preparing to travel soon for the summer camp in May at Sadhana Sangama Ashram, we wanted to share some exciting developments and seek your support. If you have not registered already, we encourage you to plan your trip asap and confirm your participation by visiting below link:


This year, we will be celebrating Guruji's Sashtiapthapurthi on May 18th as part of the camp. This event will be celebrated as per traditional vedic methods involving Guruji and Jyothima.

It is a great delight for all the Sadhakas who have been touched by Guruji and Jyothima and their selfless service towards our inner unfoldment, to be part of this event. We plan to organize in few ways to express our gratitude to Guruji and Jyothima for their contributions to us, to the society and being role models for all of us to follow their steps.

When each of us look back into the past few decades in our own lives, all of us who have come in touch with Himalayan parampara have had an irreversible transformational experience in life. We could probably go back in time and see those moments that pivoted us from our life style away from our ownself and put us on the path of Sadhana. We have seen our family blossom through the message of Harmony, removal of ego, hatred and conflicts, upliftment out of depressed state of mind establishing in joy and cheerfulness. 

We all have experienced a qualitative difference in our lives once we came in contact with Guruji and have been touched by his profound love and deep concern for our well being. It is our humble effort to compile some of those experiences of our Sadhana parivara and release a booklet at this event.

We humbly request you to share your personal experience with Guruji that made an impact in your lives. It would be good if you can mention specific experiences and how change in your personality happened putting you on path of Sadhana (or) any of his teachings that touched you in any way which inspired you in your personal life. You can prepare one page write up and share with us. Kindly include your name and place you live as well. At this moment, we also request you to share any photos you have with Guruji and Jyothima or photos taken during their programs in your area. Please note that this is to be used in preparing the booklet that shall be released in an informal way to the sadhakas during the camp. We are not planning to release a formal book at this time.

We request you to send this write up and photographs by March 31 by replying to this mail id. We would greatly appreciate if you send in your inputs as soon as possible. If you have any questions, please feel free to reach out to us through email.

We look forward to seeing you at the camp and receiving your support in this effort prior to the event.

Love & light

Sadhana Sangama Trust

SST Summer Camp - 2016
