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 Parama Pūjya 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 Parama Pūjya Swāmījī and our Guruparamparā. Inspired by these lines, plans are afoot to celebrate 2 glorious events that fall in 2022: The 75th Janmadivasa of Karuṇāmūrti Guruswāmī Parijñānāshram Swāmījī (15th June 2022) and the 25th Paṭṭābhis͟heka Divasa (21st February 2022) of H.H. Shrīmat Sadyojāt Shaṅkarāshram Swāmījī.
Over the next 15 months, as part of 'Sāyujyam' (Sāyujya: merging or joining in Sanskrit), Sādhaka-s will intensify their Sādhanā and offer at the Lotus Feet of Parama Pūjya Swāmījī - 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.
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 Parama Pūjya Swāmījī.

15th June 2021 - 15th June 2022
A Sāmūhika Sādhanā Shṛṅkhalā has been planned for the year-long twin celebrations of the 75th Janma Vars͟ha of Parama Pūjya Parijñānāshram Swāmījī III and the Silver Jubilee year of Ordination of Parama Pūjya Sadyojāt Shaṅkarāshram Swāmījī . This Sāmūhika Sādhanā Shṛṅkhalā will be carried out through the Local Sabhā-s, who need to spread the word among the laity and encourage maximum participation by sādhaka-s.
Sabhā-s have been allotted a slot of 15 days over the one year period from June 15th 2021 to June 15th 2022. See the Sabhā-wise date sheet here
Sādhaka-s of the Sabhā-s will be required to perform Sāmūhika Sādhanā Pañchakam on two Sundays in the allotted 15 days. In view of prevailing conditions Sabhā-s are advised to organise these through Online platforms only i.e. without requiring Sādhaka-s to congregate at any location.
Sādhanā Pañchakam includes the following:
1. Navarātri Nityapāt͟haḥ
2. Shrī Devī Anus͟ht͟hāna
3. Shrī Guru Pūjana or chanting of Shivamānasa Pūjā
4. Recitation of 12th and 15th Chapters of Shrīmad Bhagawadgītā
5. Lalitā Sahasranāma
The last slot of this year-long Sāmūhika Sādhanā Pañchakam will be a synchronised one for all Sabhā-s together.
Sayujyam Vaiyaktika (Personal) Sādhanā
4th March 2021 - 15th June 2022
During this period of 15 months, Sādhaka-s may choose any number of Sādhanā-s from this list:
Sādhaka-s are requested to report their monthly Sāyujyam Vaiyaktika Sādhanā details through https://bit.ly/3yRPoZU Google Form in the first week of each succeeding month. If you face any problem doing this, please request your Local Sabhā coordinators to do so on your behalf.
For those Sādhaka-s who so prefer, you may instead submit your Vaiyaktika Sādhanā details at one go in the first week of June 2022. Please inform your Local Sabhā coordinator in case you choose this option.
This collective Sadhana will be offered at the Lotus Feet of Parama Pujya Swamiji on 15th June 2022.
