गुरु ने सिखाई सत की साधना
जप तप निष्ठा नित्योपासना
गुरु ही ईश्वर, गुरु परिज्ञान
गुरु चरणों में चारों धाम
This stanza from the Bhajana 'Mana Bhāvana Mero' that H.H. Shrīmat Sadyojāt Shaṅkarāshram Swāmījī sang many years ago, captured our collective imagination then, and reminds us today, of the unceasing love, guidance, and wisdom we receive from H.H. Swāmījī and our Guruparamparā.
March 2021 onwards, the Samāja came together in innumerable ways to celebrate events that remind us of the very bedrock on which the spiritual foundation of our samāja exists: Our beloved Guru, our glorious Guruparamparā, and our revered Shrī Chitrāpur Mat͟͟h. We are blessed indeed to have witnessed in our lifetimes 3 memorable events in these last 15 months: The 75th Janmadivasa of Karuṇāmūrti Guruswāmī Parijñānāshram Swāmījī III (15th June 2022) and the 25th Paṭṭābhis͟heka Divasa (21st February 2022) of H.H. Shrīmat Sadyojāt Shaṅkarāshram Swāmījī, and the 55th Samārādhanā Divasa of H.H. Shrīmad Ānandāshram Swāmījī (9th September 2021).
Named ‘Sāyujyam' (Sāyujya: merging or joining in Sanskrit), the initial phase ran from 4th March 2021 - 15th June 2022. A sāmūhika saṅkalpa for all the Vishes͟ha and 15-month Sāyujyam Sevā-s by the samāja, was taken in the holy precincts of Shrī Chitrāpur Mat͟h on 1st March 2021. In the hallowed presence of H.H. Shrīmat Sadyojāt Shaṅkarāshram Swāmījī, prayers were offered to Lord Bhavānīshaṅkar, Shrī Bhuvaneshwarī Devī and the Holy Guruparamparā for the Dīrgha Āyus͟hya and Swāsthya of H.H. Swāmījī. Sādhaka-s intensified their sādhanā and offered it at the Lotus Feet of H.H. Swāmījī in the form of Sāyujyam Vaiyaktika (personal) Sādhanā, Sāyujyam Sāmūhika Sādhanā, Sevā-s, commemorative publications, souvenirs, cultural programmes and a host of offerings as a token of their love, gratitude, and devotion.
Sāyujyam sādhanā (4th March 2021 - 15th June 2022) was offered at the Lotus Feet of H.H. Swāmījī on the auspicious occasion of Amṛtotsava 2022 to celebrate the Janmotsava of our Guru Swāmī H.H. Shrīmat Parijñānāshram Swāmījī on 15th June 2022 at Kārlā Mat͟h.
With H.H. Swāmījī’s anumati granted on 15th June 2022, we now take the Sāyujyam initiative forward for another year.
