Whenever divinity has appeared on earth, it has simplified the path of truth and contentment for the sake of the commonfolk. None including the most revered and popular forms of Bhagvan Shree Shriram, who was born on Chaitra Shuddha Navami and Bhagvan Shree Krishna, who was born to parents Shree Vasudevji and Mata Devki on Shravan Krishna Ashtami, have been exception to this.
An important aspect of their incarnation is also that they never declared that they were indeed one! One was content leading the Kapi Sena in the battle over evil, the other was happy with the Gop Sena for the same purpose. In their various incarnations in the Kaliyuga though the battle remained the same but the evils were largely within and man-made. Hence in Kaliyuga, Bhagvan Mahavishnu as Bhagvan Dattatreya changed forms but took to healing people, their miseries by way of spiritual counseling. It began when Shree Swami Samarth Maharaj appeared as an eight-year-old child at Kurukshetra in 1149 and continued during His later incarnations as Shree Shreepad Shree Vallabh and also as Shree Nrisinh Saraswati.
Since the same Guru Tatva continues in the Dindori Pranit Seva Marg that was established by Swami Maharaj Himself, it is no surprise that His Holiness Gurumauli is no exception to this divine experience. His Holiness Gurumauli was born as Shree Shriram Khanderao More on March 20,1955 on the day of Papmochani Ekadashi, Phalgun Krishna Paksha Shaka 1877. Workshipping Bhagvan Vishnu (that is Swami Maharaj) on this day cleanses you of all vices and takes you ahead onto the spiritual path through material contentment. The day Sadguru Moredada left His mortal coil in 1988, He handed over the spiritual lineage of the Dindori Pranit Shree Swami Samarth Seva Marg to His Holiness Gurumauli.
Soon, His Holiness Gurumauli carved out a grand vision of constructing a mega-university in the form of the Akhil Bharatiya Shree Swami Samarth Gurupeeth at Trimbakeshwar to solve the problems of the needy the world over. His Holiness Gurumauli oversaw the completion of this grand and magnificent Shree Gurupeeth, the seat of high spiritual learning and empowerment. The mystic part of this project is that while Bhagvan Brahma and Bhagvan Mahesh are already installed at Trimbakeshwar in the form of the Brahmagiri mountain and the Jyotirling Mahadev, it was only after the efforts of His Holiness Gurumauli that Bhagvan Maha Vishnu got installed here in the form of Swami Maharaj!
His Holiness Gurumauli’s vision is to imbibe training in the 14 Vedic knowledge streams (vidya ) and 64 skills (kala) to the spiritual seekers here as also to conduct research and spread awareness about 108 different types of Vedic streams of knowledge that include Self-employment, Community Mass Marriages, Women Empowerment, Ayurveda, eco-friendly housing, Organic farming, etc to name a few. Under the spiritual guidance and leadership of His Holiness Gurumauli, the number of Dindori Pranit Shree Swami Samarth Seva Centres have gone over 5000 including those in Maharashtra, Delhi, Gujarat, Madhya Pradesh, Chhattisgarh, Orissa, Bihar, Jharkhand, Karnataka as those in Nairobi, Holland and California. Almost every district of Maharashtra today has a Swami Seva Centre to help people.
On the fourth Saturday of every month, His Holiness Gurumauli holds a Satsang of representatives of all centres at Shree Gurupeeth, Trimbakeshwar to take note of the social programmes executed and guides them for the next ones. Although, volunteers of all age groups are active participants, women and youth form its core. In a lighter vein, His Holiness Gurumauli, who says, all those from the age of 5-45 years are youth, often states that the Seva Marg has not 50 but 100% reservation for women considering their selfless and voluntary contribution of work for the society!
For the past 40 years, His Holiness Gurumauli has been striving to better the lives of the last of the lowest in the social strata, empowering them with knowledge and training, making them self-reliant and, in the process, carving out a strong village and agrarian economy that exists through the united colours of communal peace and harmony. The result of this education and training: Several lakhs of people have rid themselves of alcohol and abuse, got good jobs or are happily self-employed, women are running small and medium-size businesses, farmers are using the traditional as well as modern techniques and tools of agriculture resulting in more yield and so on…
Sadguru Moredada had introduced ordinary and illiterate devotees to the benefits of Vedic rituals like Rudra Namakams and Chamakams, Devi Chandi Path, etc. His Holiness Gurumauli involved lakhs of sevekaris, especially women, into over one crore readings of the Chandi Path giving out a a message of women empowerment and unity and integrity for social harmony. On May 21, 2007, several lakh sevekaris from all parts of the country converged at the feet of Goddess Saptashringi, Wani, Nasik, to participate in the congregation with an appeal for national peace and harmony.
It is here that Sage Markandeya wrote the Saptashati, the 700 verses in Her praise describing her battle with and victory over the demons. Sevekaris completed one crore readings Shree Durga Satashati, one crore readings of Shree Swami Saramrit, the divine elixir of Swami’s sportive plays and 1.25 crore chantings of Maha Mrityunjay Mantra through all Swami Seva Centres, community halls , schools, colleges, etc. History shows that only Laksh Chandi or one lakh readings of Saptashati had ever been done, namely by Dharmraj Yudhishtra in the Dwapar Yug . Sevekaris are now completing 100 crore readings of Shree Saptashati and Shree Swami Charitra Saramrit once again praying for religious harmony, security and prosperity .
His Holiness Gurumauli has undertaken the task of reviving true religion or virtuous action. Several such conventions have been held at Tuljapur, Mahur and Kolhapur, the seat of Goddess Amba Bhawani in Maharashtra, Pawagad in Gujarat, Sannati, Ganagapur and Kuravpur in Karnataka, Pithapur in Andhra Pradesh and so on. His Holiness Gurumauli shall address the next spiritual convention invoking peace and prosperity for the country at Shree Kshetra Tirupati on February 13, 2013 where lakhs of sevekaris shall urge Bhagvan Venkatesha for the same.
