India is considered the land of saints and seekers of spiritual realization. From time immemorial there has been an anxious groping after the unknown reality throughout the nation. In one way or another, efforts have been made to see God face to face. All the resources of human mind, both emotional and intellectual sides, have made efforts to obtain the sacred bliss of Atman – the peace which is beyond all material understanding. From the Vedic times till date, luminaries like Lord Rama, Lord Krishna, Buddha, Nanak, Sankara, RamaKrishna, Ramanuja, Vivekananda & many others incarnated in India, our country is essentially the the land of saints & sages.

Child Aasumal is born…
The God is inscrutable and His Leela(s) (pass-times) are even more so. When God decides to come down to make the world rise out of ignorance, He, in his compassion, assumes an embodied form; and blessed are those whom He selects as His parents. Shri Thaumal Sirumalani and his consort Menhgiba were indeed so blessed. This child incarnated in the village of Berani, district Nawabshah, Sindh state of unpartitioned India on the sixth day of Chaitra Vadi, Vikram Samvat 1998. He was named Asumal.

The day Aasumal was born, a merchant stopped by Shri Thaumalji’s house & said that day before all of a sudden he had a strong feeling that a great saintly child shall be born in ThauMalji’s family. Therefore he brought a swing for this special child. Many saints & needy started coming for alms to the door of the benevolent Thaumal everyday.

Birth of Asumal

There was a myth in the society that a child born after three sisters brings trouble & misfortune to the family; but instead this family earned more respect, fortune & happiness.

When Asumal was three years old the spiritual teacher of their family, Shri Parasuramji Maharaj, visited their house and professed that this boy Asumal is not an ordinary child & he will be a great saint and show light of spiritualism to people living in ignorance.

Early Childhood
As a child, Asumal was quite inclined towards religious epics. Like the parents of many other great saints Asumal’s parents were adorned with the hearts that shone with purity, nobility and great reverence to teachers and saints. Mother is always the very first teacher of a child. Asumal would listen to stories of Ramayana, Bhagwavata and other scriptures from his mother. The first seed of spiritual life was sown in his life during this period.

One day mother Menhgiba dressed up Asumal in clothes embroidered with silver and gold colored thread (zari) and shining diamonds. Asumal was overwhelmed with this new dress. He kept gazing at the blanket of stars in the night and said, “O Sky! I’m not at all less than you. I’m wearing clothes embroidered with shining diamonds similar to that of yours.” Thus, right from early childhood, one could see a different positive vigour and self-confidence in Asumal’s attitude…Young Asumal

Asumal, starded displaying glimpses of prodigious memory at the young age of three. He would often accompany his elder brother to school. Once the teacher asked the students to narrate the poem which was taught a day before, Asumal at such a young age stood up and narrated the complete poem without any mistake. Everyone was surprised.

Due to the unfortunate partition of India the whole family had to migrate from Sindh in Pakistan to Maninagar near Ahmedabad, in Gujarat.

Asumal started going to school again in Maninagar. Six year old Asumal was very brilliant in studies. During the recess time, when other childeren used to play, Asumal would sit under a tree for meditaion. The teachers used to praise Asumal for being very cheerful, pure-hearted and intelligent. Teachers used to to call him Hansmukh bhai (the one who keeps smiling always). While leaving for school, Shri Thaumal used to fill Asumal’s pocket with cashews, pistachios and almonds. Asumal would share these nuts with all other students. At home, Asumal would serve his father by massaging his feet at night.

Mother is the first Guru of a child. Mother Mehgiba developed Asumal’s interest in dhyaan-bhajan (meditation and prayers) right from his early childhood. Mehgiba would put makkhan-mishri (sweetened butter) in front of Asumal when he would be sitting for meditation with his eyes closed. She would tell Asumal to open his eyes and see what prasaad (blessed food) God had sent for him. Asumal would keep sitting in deep meditation for long hours in a small room. When the neighbours would come to meet Mehgiba, finding Asumal meditating so profoundly, they would attract Menhgiba’s attention towards him. Inspired by the neighbours, Mehgiba would ask Asumal to do less of meditation, but nothing could move Asumal’s determination.

When Asumal saw that school education could be used merely for the purpose of winning bread and fulfilling worldly enjoyment, he became disenchanted to education. Nevertheless he continued going to school. Whenever there was any time to spare, he would go to a lonely place and meditate.

Youth and Spiritual Quest

At a very young age Asumal lost his father and the family business started dwindling. Asumal had to discontinue his education and shoulder on the family’s responsibility along with his elder brother. Asumal’s presence in the business improved the profits, but his mind was far away from the business. He always yearned for spiritual knowledge.

After his father’s demise Asumal’s discrimination towards life intensified. He increased the time for mediation and realized that God alone is one reality & essence of life. His concentration increased greatly due to regular, pure meditation and unknowingly all siddhis (mystical powers) attended upon him at the tender age of ten years. No one could stop the fire of renunciation that was enveloping him completely. As Asumal grew into youth his meditation and search for Truth intensified. Asumal’s growing detachment to the world worried his family and they decided to get him married. Asumal’s family got him engaged.

“Granite walls however high are not high enough to shut out fate,
Iron chains however strong are not strong enough to trap a free bird.”

Asumal kept postponing marriage for two & half years. Eventually, his family fixed up a date for marriage. He did not want to be entangled in the bondage of marriage so he ran away from home eight days before marriage. Members of family & friends started searching for Asumal, they found him in Ashok Ashram of Bharauch & dragged him back to home. Asumal was married to Lakshmi Devi.

He told his wife, ” I don’t want to be enmesh myself into this samasara. I want to be free like Shuka, Buddha, Shankara. So don’t obstruct me in my way.” Lakshmi Devi did gave her assent. Even a golden chain could not bind a free bird.

Asumal joined a Sanskrit School in order to grow more spiritually. He used to sleep in the school at night away from his wife & practise celibacy (Brahmacharya) sincerely. Four days before exam he was highly influenced by a shloka which meant that, “The one who has disowned expectations & materialistic desires & has adopted the desireless state, the penances & worship of such a person has reached completion.” His desire to attain God got intensified. He made up his mind to break from family so as to realize God.

“Life at its best is a long drawn agony, only its pains bide,
Its pleasures are as birds that are light and fly;
Men live and die and whirl upon the wheel and hug and kiss it’s spokes of agony;
It’s tier of tears, it’s nave of nothingness.
I have been yearning to know if these were the eternal lot of men.”

Bapu as SadhakThese were the thoughts that were going on in the mind of Asumal when he renounced the world.

After leaving his dominions, Asumal went from place to place and at nights slept on the grass, homeless and alone. He did intense spiritual practices in deep forests, on hills, in deep caves, in various great temples.

At Kedarnath, the Pujari blessed Asumal to become a millionaire, but Asumal did not appreciate this. He worshipped again & made a pledge to attain God.

Asumal then went to Vrindavan, the land of Lord Krishna. Here he was inspired to go to the Ashram of the Great Guru, Swami Shri Lilashahaji Maharaj. He had to wait for 40 days in the Ashram to get the glimpse of Gurudev. There he stayed and served his SadGuru with true devotion. He waged war with so many troubles. He used to take just Moong Dal as food, sleep in a small 4.5 feet room. SadGurudev made Asumal go through several hardships for another 30 days & then finally Asumal was blessed. Swami Shri Lilashahaji Maharaj asked him to go back to home & continue his spiritual practices at home.

He came back to his Ahmedabad home. But his mind was attuned to only self-realization. No one can stop a man who is on his way to Paramapada (Ultimate Realization). He passed 13 days at his home but he became so restless that he made up his mind to leave his home again in quest of supreme beatitude.

He left his home and started doing intense spiritual sadhana on the banks of river Narmada at Moti Koral. A local saint Shri Lalji Maharaj got impressed by Asumal’s intense spiritual practices. Lalji Maharaj made arrangements for Asumal to stay in Datt Kutir of Ram Niwas (Lalji Maharaj’s Ashram). Asumal started the 40 day Anushthan here.

One day while Asumal was meditationg in the bank of river Narmada, heavy rain poured. Asumal did not want to stop his meditation. He went to a nearby fisherman’s hut, and there he sat in meditation, soon he merged himself in deep meditation. Sometime later, the owner of the house came outside to attend his natural call & he saw our Asumal. He thought Asumal to be a thief and collected all the fishermen in the neighbourhood. Everybody in the near vicinity came with their weapons, sticks and swords etc. But Asumal was deeply merged in meditation. After some time he slowly opened his eyes and saw many people around him with all kinds of weapons, making noise. But who can do anything to a person who has conquered all sensory tendencies, like evil, animosity.

“No armor is invented till today, by man which has not succumbed to the attack of weapons and no defeat is known by him who has armored his soul with the training of the ‘Self’ with inward discipline.”

All people that came there gazed at him in wonder and beheld him with respect. They realized that he is a great saint doing meditation. Asumal immediately left that place with heavenly dignity. All these people asked for forgiveness & looked upon him with great reverence and esteem.

When Asumal’s wife and mother came to know that he was staying at Moti Koral they visited him. They requested him to come back.With Guru But Asumal told them without completing the Anushthan he cannot come. He successfully completed the Anushthan. The whole village & Shri Lalji Maharaj himself came to the railway station to see them off to Ahmedabad. As soon as the train started moving from Miyagam junction, Asumal jumped out and boarded a train towards Bombay.

Asumal reached Bombay (Mumbai) & went for darshan of SadGurudev Lilashahji Maharaj. It was the second day of Shukla Paksha in the month of Ashwin Samvat 2021, when after seeing his disciple’s great yearning to attain the truth and his intense and resolute will against all odds, the great Guru showered Purna Guru Kripa on him at the young age of 23. Swami Lilashahji blessed Asumal with ultimate knowledge, thereafter Asumal became merged in samadhi for two and half days. Sadhak Asumal was transformed into Swami Shri Asaramji Maharaj by the golden touch of SadGurudev (master). Asumal got enlightenment.

The end of sadhana was reached at last. The human being became a divine being.

Asumal started seeing the one supreme being in all. With SadGuru’s grace Asaramji discovered the absolute truth. Affinity for the world disappeared. Each moment of life was overflowing with the divine realization of existence of One in All. The stage beyond pride & material attractions was reached. The final destination where the Jiva becomes one with Parmatman was reached. The blissful state where nothing can separate one from God was finally attained.

Purna Guru Kripa Mili, Purna Guru Ka Gyan
Asumal Se Ho Gaye Sai Asaram…

Pujya Lila Shahji Maharaj instructed Asaramji to serve the humanity by staying as a householder.

After Self-Realization Sant Shri Asaramji Bapu stayed in solitude for seven years. Pujya Shri used to stay fully immersed in the bliss of the Atman (Brahmanand Masti) & give religious discourse to all those who came for darshana (meet & see Bapuji). Pujya Shri spent His solitude in various places like Disa, Naareshwar Dhaam, the Himalayas, Mt. Abu & so on…

Stay in Disa

By the commands of SadGuru, Sant Shri Asaramji Bapu started living in the Ashram of Disa village near Palanpur in Gujarat. Pujya Shri used to stay closed inside a secluded small room throughout the day & go to Banas river in the mornings & evenings. One day while coming back from the Banas river, Pujya Shri saw a dead cow surrounded by sveral villagers in front of the Disa Ashram. Swamiji gave some water to one villager to sprinkle it on the cow & quietly left the place. To the amazement of all, as soon as the water was sprinkled on the cow, it turned alive.

In DisaSometimes Pujya Shri used to go for alms to the village during his stay in Disa. One day when he went to a house & said, ‘Narayan Hari”, the woman of the house insulted Pujya Shri & used foul language. She did not know that a Self-Realized saint had come to her door. Pujya Shri remained calm & said to His inner self, “Now see God in the person who is insulting you!” The woman was surprised by the tranquility of Pujya Shri.

Once a businessman named Chandiram came to Disa Ashram to get blessings from Swami Lilashahji Maharaj before getting married for the third time to a young 18 year old girl. His earlier two wives were already dead. Pujya Shri gave a divine look & said to him, “Why should you go for this marriage? I would get you married to God!” Chandiram’s life changed all of a sudden. His lust simply vanished & instead of getting married, he started out his spiritual journey. Now he is better known as Mahant Chandiram & is a resident of Ashram.

A householder named Shivlal had a hotel in Disa. One day he heard about Pujya Shri from his friend & went for darshan. Shivlal had heard that this saint stayed in a closed room for days. On his way to see Pujya Shri, he was wondering what this saint used to eat staying in a closed room. To his utter surprise, Pujya Shri came to know what was going on in his mind & while giving discourse Swamiji mentioned that nobody needs to worry about what he ate. Shivlal came to know that Bapu is Antaryami (one who can read mind & knows everything). Shivlal became a follower & now he is a resident of Ashram.

One day Pujya Shri saw a lame labourer near the river. This man was very upset as he had been fired from his job. Pujya Shri not only assured him that he would get his job back but also made him cross the river by carrying him on the shoulders. This man was bewildered when his employer accepted him back, offered a simpler job with increased salary.

Several people got rid of their age old addictions for alcohol, tobacco & non-veg food here at Disa after listening to Pujya Shri’s satsang. People troubled with life found solace in Pujya Shri’s words & several well-established people realized the importance of spiritualism.

…But the folks of Disa could not recognize Bapuji’s divinity. Once after satsang Pujya Shri jokingly said, “A saint and a materialistic person are alike, isn’t it?” The audience did not understand this statement & started replying in affirmation. Pujya Shri got up immediately, removed the cloth which was wrapped around his body, & made his journey onwards in under shorts. People asked for forgiveness but a saint has no affinty for the world. The actions of a saint cannot be interpreted by a common man (Fakiri Masti)…

At Naareshwar Dhaam

Pujya Shri left Disa & went deep inside the dense forests of Naareshwar Dhaam. Bapuji sat under a tree for meditation for the whole of night. In the morning he felt a little hungry & thought, “I’ll keep sitting here. The one who needs me shall send food. The Creator Himself would come…” Very soon two farmers came & offered milk & fruits to Swamiji. They said that in their dreams they were inspired to take Prasad for Pujya Bapuji. Pujya Shri came to know that this is God’s Leela. The farmers said that they would return with more villagers. Asaramji realized that God is the basis of all.
Pujya Shri wrote on the ground:
Jogi to ramta bhala (A saint does not stay at one place!) and left the place…

The Himalayas

Swamiji then went to Nainital to pay visit to Pujya Lilashahji Maharaj. Getting instructions from SadGurudev, Pujya Shri headed for the Himalayas. Pujya Shri spent time in various places like Rishikesh, Gangotri, Uttar Kashi, Badrinath, Kedarnath etc.

Mt. Abu

Sometimes in summer Pujya Shri would go into the dangerous jungles of Mount Abu. Pujya Shri knew that the same Supreme Soul resides even in the ferocious animals therefore no animal could ever disturb Bapuji’s tranquility. In Mt. Abu Pujya Shri used to give satsang in the evenings.

Address to All India Vedanta-Ramayana Parliament in 1971

Pujya Shri captured the hearts of many by the sweet nectar of His satsang in the All India Vedanta-Ramayana Parliament held at Arya Nagar, Kanpur. There were 41 other famous orators also present in the gathering.

Life as a Householder:

Pujya Shri met Swami Lilashahji in Haridwar in Vikram Samvat 2028, & by the commands of SadGuru, inorder to provide a goodSai Asaram example to common householders, Swamiji entered the life of a householder. It was the day of Guru Punam in Vikram Samvat 2028 when Pujya Shri reached Ahmedabad after staying in solitude for seven years. Bapuji lead a life similar to that of saints like Kabir and Ekanath. Bapuji chose a peaceful place in the Motera village on the banks of Sabarmati river. Later on some of the devotees constructed a small room for Swamiji which is very well known as “Moksha Kutir”. Though the village of Motera was very famous for its thieves and boot-leggers, Bapuji lived there submerged in the joy of communion with Atman.

The fragrance of this beautiful spiritual flower spread in all directions inviting to sip the nectar. Thousands of people started coming to Motera to get solace from their worldly afflictions and to get peace at the feet of Sant Shri Asaramji Bapu.

Slowly that place has become a great spiritual center. It is now called Sant Shri Asaramji Ashram. All sections of people come there to get peace and spiritual solace. Many new Ashrams & Yoga Vedanta Samiti’s have also evolved since then. The Ashram conducts several spiritual retreats, yoga camps & humanitarian work.

Divine personalities like Krishna, Buddha, Rama, Jesus and Mohamed influence the lives of millions of people for centuries. Their influence is not limited by time. Nay, it undergoes a process of time enlargement : with the passage of centuries the Flurry of these prophets, instead of decreasing, goes on increasing.

Each saint or world teacher comes as the embodiment of the dominant ideal of a particular age, and his life becomes the highest moral standard and ideal for the people of that age.

Man has been continually discovering new ways of exploiting nature and improving the means of production of food, clothing, other necessities and also the means of transport and travel. Each epoch with it’s changed condition, throws new challenges to the people. These external challenges can be met only by mobilizing the inner spiritual resources of the people. It is through ideas and ideals that the inner energies of man get mobilized. Certain charismatic individuals who become masters of new religions or new religious movements develop the new ideals necessary for each epoch.

Idea PersonalityIt is to this class of saints and world teachers that Sant Shri Asaramji Bapu belongs. Swamiji’s advent was a historical necessity. There was the need for a charismatic individual who could create and vitalize the basic ideals of the present age. Sant Shri Asaramji Bapu’s exemplary life has fulfilled this requirement. Pujya Bapuji is the source of energy which is emitting great Vedantic ideals in the present age for the welfare of mankind.

Beyond the bare rudiments of literacy, Shri Asaramji Bapu never had formal education. Most of Swamiji’s youth was spent in the intense practice of spiritual sadhana. Pujya Shri virtually lived the life of a monk depending solely on God’s grace. How can such a man be regarded as the ideal man for the modern age which idealizes film stars, sportsmen, politicians, and now for a change, miracle-working yogis? See any newspaper, or magazine and you will find almost every page displaying pictures of men and women in all kinds of dress and posture who project idealized pictures of contemporary society. No other age ever allowed lust and greed to dominate the minds of the people so completely as the modern age has done. Every thing in modern society is valued for the sake of money. Can Shri Asaramji Bapu who is a sage become the ideal for the people of such a society?

The answer is that an ideal stands for perfection & imperfect individuals cannot give these ideals. Western cultures consider beauty, truth and goodness as the criteria of perfection. However physical beauty is only skin deep, and is as evanescent as youth itself. Truth is sought through science, to another mystery beyond. The basis of goodness is unselfish love, but in the market oriented culture of modern society unselfishness is the scarcest commodity.

Perfection must be sought in the right place. Thousands of years ago it was discovered in India, that perfection could not be found in the external world, which is impermanent and full of contradictions. Freedom from all limitations is the Vedantic criterion of perfection. Immutable Truth, unity of existence, boundless bliss, this is what is meant by perfection in Vedanta. There is only one thing, which is free from all limitations of time, space, causation: It is absolute consciousness. It is in the depths of consciousness, that perfection is to be sought. It is this total freedom that is the vedantic criterion of perfection, and the individual who has attained this freedom is the ideal of perfection. He is known as the Bramavit, knower of Brahman.

Sant Shri Asaramji Bapu is the embodiment of this ancient Vedantic ideal of perfection. The ideal person according to Vedanta is one who after attaining liberation for himself strives for the liberation of others. Such a fully illuminated soul is called a Rishi. It is as a perfect Rishi that Sant Shri Asaramji Bapu is said to be the ideal man for modern age.

What are the morals of a fully illuminated soul? According to Pujyapad Sant Shri Asaramji Bapu there are three: Renunciation, Knowledge, and Compassion.

शरद पूर्णिमा, जिसे कोजागरी पूर्णिमा या रास पूर्णिमा भी कहते हैं; हिन्दू पंचांग के अनुसार आश्विन मास की पूर्णिमा को कहते हैं। ज्‍योतिष के अनुसार, पूरे साल में केवल इसी दिन चंद्रमा सोलह कलाओं से परिपूर्ण होता है।[1] हिन्दी धर्म में इस दिन कोजागर व्रत माना गया है। इसी को कौमुदी व्रत भी कहते हैं। इसी दिन श्रीकृष्ण ने महारास रचा था। मान्यता है इस रात्रि को चंद्रमा की किरणों से अमृत झड़ता है। तभी इस दिन उत्तर भारत में खीर बनाकर रात भर चांदनी में रखने का विधान है।

चंद्रमा मन का कारक है और उसकी चांदनी शीतलता पहुंचाती है। लेकिन यही चांदनी मानव के स्वास्थ्य को भी लाभ पहुंचाती है। मानव के अवगुणों को मिटाने के लिए भी चंद्रमा की चादनी सर्वश्रेष्ठ मानी जाती है। वर्ष की चार सर्वश्रेष्ठ पूर्णिमाओं में एक मानी जाने वाली शरद पूर्णिमा सबसे अधिक लाभदायक है।

क्या है शरद पूर्णिमा

18 अक्टूबर को आश्रि्वन पूणिर्मा के दिन शरद पूर्णिमा है। पंडित विष्णु सरस बताते हैं कि पौराणिक कथाओं के अनुसार शरद पूर्णिमा पर भगवान कृष्ण ने गोपियों के साथ रासलीला की थी और इसी दिन चंद्रमा अपनी सोलह कलाओं से सुसज्जित होकर धरती को पूर्णतया प्रकाशमय कर देता है। उनके मुताबिक कालरात्रि, शिवरात्रि,दारूण रात्रि एवं मोह रात्रि यह चार रात्रि होती है जिनमें शरद पूर्णिमा को मोह रात्रि भी कहा जाता है।

औषधि पूर्ण होती है चांदनी

शरद पूर्णिमा के दिन चांद की चांदनी औषधीय गुणों से सराबोर होती है। इस बारे में आयुर्वेदाचार्य राहुल चक्रवर्ती बताते हैं कि जिस प्रकार सूर्य की रोशनी शरीर को रोगमुक्त बनाती है। उसी प्रकार चांद की चांदनी भी इस दिन शरीर के लिए सबसे अधिक लाभकारी होती है। इस दिन की चांदनी में औषधीय तत्वों का समावेश होता है। इस दिन चांदनी में जरूर बैठना चाहिए।

आंखों के लिए है लाभकारी

इस दिन चंद्रमा को यदि एकटक त्राटक रेखा में देखा जाए तो आंखों का बहुत अच्छा अभ्यास होता है। इस दिन चंद्रमा की रोशनी में सुई में धागा डालने से भी नेत्रों की ज्योति बढ़ती है।

जरूर खाएं चांदनी की खीर

पं.महेश चंद वशिष्ठ बताते हैं कि शरद पूर्णिमा की औषधीय गुणों की चांदनी के कारण इस दिन खीर बनाकर चांदनी में रखना चाहिए और सवेरे उसे अवश्य खाना चाहिए। यह शरीर के लिए काफी लाभक ारी होती है।

 

कथा

एक साहुकार के दो पुत्रियाँ थी।[1] दोनो पुत्रियाँ पुर्णिमा का व्रत रखती थी। परन्तु बडी पुत्री पूरा व्रत करती थी और छोटी पुत्री अधुरा व्रत करती थी। परिणाम यह हुआ कि छोटी पुत्री की सन्तान पैदा ही मर जाती थी। उसने पंडितो से इसका कारण पूछा तो उन्होने बताया की तुम पूर्णिमा का अधूरा व्रत करती थी जिसके कारण तुम्हारी सन्तान पैदा होते ही मर जाती है। पूर्णिमा का पुरा विधिपुर्वक करने से तुम्हारी सन्तान जीवित रह सकती है।

उसने पंडितों की सलाह पर पूर्णिमा का पूरा व्रत विधिपूर्वक किया। उसके लडका हुआ परन्तु शीघ्र ही मर गया। उसने लडके को पीढे पर लिटाकर ऊपर से पकडा ढक दिया। फिर बडी बहन को बुलाकर लाई और बैठने के लिए वही पीढा दे दिया। बडी बहन जब पीढे पर बैठने लगी जो उसका घाघरा बच्चे का छू गया। बच्चा घाघरा छुते ही रोने लगा।बडी बहन बोली-” तु मुझे कंलक लगाना चाहती थी। मेरे बैठने से यह मर जाता।“ तब छोटी बहन बोली, ” यह तो पहले से मरा हुआ था। तेरे ही भाग्य से यह जीवित हो गया है। तेरे पुण्य से ही यह जीवित हुआ है। “उसके बाद नगर में उसने पुर्णिमा का पूरा व्रत करने का ढिंढोरा पिटवा दिया। ॐ

विधान

इस दिन मनुष्य विधिपूर्वक स्नान करके उपवास रखे और जितेन्द्रिय भाव से रहे। धनवान व्यक्ति ताँबे अथवा मिट्टी के कलश पर वस्त्र से ढँकी हुई स्वर्णमयी लक्ष्मी की प्रतिमा को स्थापित करके भिन्न-भिन्न उपचारों से उनकी पूजा करें, तदनंतर सायंकाल में चन्द्रोदय होने पर सोने, चाँदी अथवा मिट्टी के घी से भरे हुए १०० दीपक जलाए।इसके बाद घी मिश्रित खीर तैयार करे और बहुत-से पात्रों में डालकर उसे चन्द्रमा की चाँदनी में रखें। जब एक प्रहर (३ घंटे) बीत जाएँ, तब लक्ष्मीजी को सारी खीर अर्पण करें। तत्पश्चात भक्तिपूर्वक सात्विक ब्राह्मणों को इस प्रसाद रूपी खीर का भोजन कराएँ और उनके साथ ही मांगलिक गीत गाकर तथा मंगलमय कार्य करते हुए रात्रि जागरण करें।तदनंतर अरुणोदय काल में स्नान करके लक्ष्मीजी की वह स्वर्णमयी प्रतिमा आचार्य को अर्पित करें।इस रात्रि की मध्यरात्रि में देवी महालक्ष्मी अपने कर-कमलों में वर और अभय लिए संसार में विचरती हैं और मन ही मन संकल्प करती हैं कि इस समय भूतल पर कौन जाग रहा है? जागकर मेरी पूजा में लगे हुए उस मनुष्य को मैं आज धन दूँगी।

इस प्रकार प्रतिवर्ष किया जाने वाला यह कोजागर व्रत लक्ष्मीजी को संतुष्ट करने वाला है। इससे प्रसन्न हुईं माँ लक्ष्मी इस लोक में तो समृद्धि देती ही हैं और शरीर का अंत होने पर परलोक में भी सद्गति प्रदान करती हैं।

REALITY OF MEDIA/NEWS CHANNELS-”Your Mail’s”


Hari om Atman,

I have got some useful links against TV news channels while surfing who did irresponsible job by misusing their power and misguided Indian community by spreading the copied or unjustified information and make their decision final w/o having correct n full story in hand.

Sunday, May 25, 2008 – Register FIR against TV channels, orders Court.

http://newshopper.sulekha.com/newsitem/2008/05/register-fir-against-tv-channels-orders-court.htm

New Delhi: A Delhi court has ordered registration of FIRs against three private TV channels for allegedly telecasting the interview of a rape victim’s parents, terming their acts as “crime”. “The report prima-facie shows that India TV, Sahara Samay and IBN have committed the offence punishable under section 228 of the IPC.

May 28, 2007 17:21 IST – SC wants to know more about sting operations

http://www.rediff.com/news/2007/may/28sting.htm

The Supreme Court on Monday issued notices to the Centre, Prasar Bharati, television channels CNN-IBN, IBN-7, TV 18, website Cobra Post and magazine Outlook on a petition seeking directions to the Centre and Prasar Bharati to stop the telecast of programmes shown on the CNN-IBN channel on May 4, 5 and 14, which carried out sting operations against religious pontiffs.

FIR ordered against India TV CEO – http://www.hinduonnet.com/2005/03/30/stories/2005033016130300.htm

Aaj Tak channel off the air in Gujarat – Many areas of Gujarat reported that Aaj Tak was blocked by cable operators. Today Aaj Tak and IBN is off the air in Gujarat.

Enemies of Gujarat, Enemies of India

http://nisha007.sulekha.com/blog/post/2007/10/enemies-of-gujarat-enemies-of-india/comments.htm

Aaj Tak Fake news plane landing at varanasiAaj Tak faking news and showing footages from youtube itself. Shows fake footage of Varanasi airport plane landing … – http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xELs0Q5vsi8

At last in conclusion, the real fact of all news channels to increase/popular their TRP.

30 mins news called VISHESH or MISSION have = 10 mins music + 10 mins. Advert. + 4 min for headline repeating 4-5 times + 4 min matter (breaking news i.e. break the real news by manipulating) repeated 3 times the same thing without any change. 2 mins. for introduction (opening/closing) line.

BAPU JI unhe sadbuddhi dee.

Intention to give above details, that how the media play their trick and make whole story by getting only single line on any incident i/o going into the depth of truth.

Hari om

Ajay Rana

OM HRIM…OM HRIM…OM HRIM…

Aaj tak yes its the famous aaj tak that is now famous for its illetrate reporters and fraud news.

Tuesday August 5’2008 Evening news on Aaj tak. Show vishesh “special” heading “BAPU KA QUADI”

DO AAJTAK REPORTERS KNOW WAT IS THE MEANING OF THE WORD PRISON”QUADI” AND JAIL.

THE NEWS WAS SENSATIONALIZED AS THE A BOY WHO WAS A CHILD TILL 25 YEARS AND NOW CHELA SINCE 15 YEARS HE

HAS NOT COME TO HIS HOME . QUAID MAIN BETA” YES THESE WERE THE NEWS OF AAJ TAK SEE HOW RESPOSNSIBLE THIS NEWS CHANNEL IS OR IS SAY THIS CHANNEL SHOULD BE FINED FOR SHOWING SUCH BAD THINGS.

NOW LETS TALK ABOUT ITS REPORTERS YES AAJTAK SAMVADATA  THEY DONT KNOW THE MEANING OF QUADI “INMATE”

THE SIMPLE MEANING OF THIS WORD IS THAT THE PERSON IS LIVING WITHOUT HIS WILL BUT HERE THE CASE WAS DIFFERENT THE PERSON WAS LIVING WITH HIS WILL AND THE REPORTES SHOWED IT AS HE IS BEING KIDNAPPED THERE, NOW YOU MUST BE THINKING WHY THEY DID SO RIGHT .

BECAUSE THEY JUST WANT TO EARN MONEY IT DOES’T MATTER EVEN IF IT HURTS THE FEELING OF OTHERS.

WE REQUEST ALL THE OTHER MEDIA CHANNELS WHOM WE THINK ARE RESPONSIBLE TO TEACH AND TELL AAJTAK THE MEANING OF INMATE OR KIDNAPPED THEY ARE SHOWING THAT A MAN NOT A CHILD OF AGE NEARLY 30-35 WHO IS LIVING IN ASHARAM JI BABU’S ASHRAM WITH HIS CHOICE AND HE IS HAPPY THERE BUT THE AAJTAK SHOWS IT LIKE HE IS FORCED TO LIVE A LIFE IN AASHRAM SO WAT WE CALL THIS ACT OF AAJTAK ITS SIMPLY A SHAMEFUL ACT ON BEHALF OF MEDIA. WHEN YOU R A RESPONSIBLE PERSON YOU KNOW YOU ARE BEEN SEEN BY THOUSANDS OF PEOPLE AND STILL YOU DOING THESE PETY THINGS ITS REALLY SHAMEFUL .

WE REQUEST ALL NEWS CHANNELS TO SHOW ONLY MEANING FULL NEWS OTHERWISE YOU WILL BE FINED YOU SHOULD BE RESPONSIBLE FOR SHOWING SUCH THINGS AND A ACTION SHOULD BE TAKEN AGAINST THOSE HOW VIOLATES THE CODE OF CONDUCT .

AND IF NOTHING HAPPENS THEN WE CAN ASSUME THAT THE MOVIES LIKE “FIR BHI DIL HAI HINDUSTANI ” HAVE SHOWN US THE REAL MEDIA WHICH IS JUST TRP FOCUSED AND MONEY FOCUSED AND POLITICALLY INFLUENCED BUT MY FRIEND YEH PUBLIC HAI YEH SAB JANTI HAI . JAB TAK CHUP HAI THEEK HAI JIS DIN ISNE SHOOR MACHAYA TO SAB THEEK HO JAYEGA.
