Address By Sri Manish Sharma (Managing Trustee)

Hari Aum!

My prostrations at the Altar of Sree Guru Parampara.On this cold winter morning, a very warm welcome to all present!

“Manushyanaam Sahastreshu Kashchit Yatati Siddhaye; Yatataamapi Siddhaanaam Kashchinmaam Vetti Tattwatah.”

That is - “There is one amongst thousands who strives for the Supreme; and amongst those who sincerely strive, ONE gets to know Me Essentially.”

The purpose of human life is well served when renouncing the worldly life, an individual takes up the sacred journey towards Self-realization. By the grace of Sree Param Gurudev Swami Tapovan Maharaj and the blessings of His Holiness Swami Chinmayanandaji, Maa Purnanandaji was initiated to commence her journey on this Path in the year 1993 and since then, Maa has been lovingly guiding us. This Spiritual bond brings us all together today to offer our gratitude to Maa on this very special day of her 60thJanma Jayanti.

For past 25 years, Maa Purnanandaji has been imparting the Knowledge of the Veda-s, unabatedly. Apart from giving discourses, Maa has authored, compiled and written commentaries on some of the important Vedic Texts. Without the Divine intervention it would not be possible to understand the abstract concepts of the Sacred Veda-s. Moreover, to expound on them in relevance to the contemporary age is a herculean task. Maa is one of those chosen few who are thus blessed by the divine, benefitting the humankind with her firm belief in the Supreme Truth.

I take this opportunity to thank all the dedicated seekers who, under the auspices of our Trust, have ever since its inception, been offering selfless service towards this unique project of learning, living and spreading the sacred message of our holy scriptures far and wide. I can say with conviction that the steady and soulful growth of this project over the years stands testimony to the very motto of our Trust – “Yato Dharmastato Jayah” – “Where Dharma is, Victory is for sure!”

Learning from Her selfless effort of awakening the society towards the Holier and the Higher, and, furthering Maa’s noble vision, we hereby extend our services in our most humble way, by offering some selected Satyavrat Publications at the Vedic ceremony of Tula Bhaar, which will be distributed by all of us, to the deserving, in different parts of the world.

As per the Vedic tradition, no ritual is complete without distribution of food as Prasaad. It is interesting to note that the food that we partake has got only six types of taste or Rasa-s which are - Sweet, Salty, Sour, Neutral, Bitter and Pungent. These Rasa-s make a meal wholesome & nutritious.

It won’t be out of place to compare Maa’s unique way of guiding the seekers, with these six Rasa-s, as food for thought! Her Chants from the Holy Scriptures are Sweet, Her commentary enhances the listener’s understanding as what the Salt does to food, Her pointing out to individual’s flaws Sours the seeker’s elevating experience, Her treatment to one & all is Neutral, many feel Her scolding quite Bitter, and the sincere seekers continue to learn from Her thought-provoking Pungent nourishment of Vedaant. Therefore today as Her Prasaad, all these six Rasa-s have been included in the Maha-prasaad! So Please do not miss it!

Words fail to express my joy and satisfaction of being a part of Maa’s Holy life. I feel blessed and am grateful to the Guru Parampara for gracing me with this wonderful happening in my life. My heartfelt gratitude to Maa’s Purvaashram family members and friends who have kindly honoured us by being present on this very special day.

I sincerely thank our Trustees and each one of you for being a precious part of SISS and for being here for this auspicious and joyous celebration.
