For the love of his shraddhavaan friends, Sadguru Aniruddha Bapu composed the (three volumes) Shreemad Purushaartha Grantharaaj. These Granthas (holy scriptures) will permanently serve as the guiding light in the lives of Shraddhavaans. Sadguru Aniruddha Bapu has said that the “Shreemad Purushaartha” is his Yadnya (ritual of offering made with a purpose) to eliminate darkness.
The Shreemad Purushaartha Grantharaaj in Sadguru Aniruddha Bapu’s words-
“I have been performing this Yadnya till today and will always do so, eternally. The Yadnya, just as my name, is Aniruddha (unstoppable) and so is the light that it produces. I neither insist nor request that accept this path be followed, for I accept fully and wholeheartedly the freedom of thought and deed of every living being. Every decision I make, every action I do, every task I accomplish, will abide by this law(the “Shreemad Purushaartha“). That is how it has been and will ever be… always, eternally.”
He further says that he has collected this honey from the blossom that stemmed from the contemplations of several seers, sages, teachers, saints, great philosophers and even those of the common man. He then poured this into the hive that is the “Shreemad Purushartha” He has left this hive open, for each being who wishes to enjoy its taste and medicinal properties.
What was the purpose of writing the Shreemad Purushaartha Grantharaaj?
Bapu composed the Shreemad Purushaartha Grantharaj so that every Shraddhavan can walk on the path of Devayaan Pantha (religious good) to enable them to happily pursue family life and spirituality. It is one of the points from Bapu’s 13 Point Program and he has composed these three Grantha. The three Grantha are the Maargadarshak(guide) Gurus for every human being, so that they can live their life successfully and confidently.
The Composition of the three Volumes-
1.Satya Pravesh – Extreme quietism or worldly egocentric behaviour, both types of solitude cause an imbalance in an individual’s life as well as in the society. Only the Maryada marg (path of discipline) that offers balance, can help achieve the Parmeshwar’s (Almighty) treasures. Sadguru Bapu has introduced the Maryada marg in this Grantha using very simple words and examples.
2.Prempravaas (The Journey of Love, with love, for the sake of love) –
To make man’s sacred journey blissful, it is required for one to keep seeking the ultimate truth, i.e. the Parmeshwar (Almighty) throughout the journey. And the quest for this truth is the quest for God, the attainment of joy and that is not possible unless this journey is full of love. The “Prem Pravas” is the one and only path to a self-sufficient and contented journey of life. The “Prem Pravas” is no different from the “Maryaadaa Purushaartha (paath of discipline)”. This second volume of Shreemad Purushaartha progresses in three areas.
2. Shrirang – Purushartha Paraakram
(A planned orchard comprising of trees, which bear fruits that are “madhura“, the sweetness of which is very satisfying).
3. Anandasadhana –
The many ways of attaining happiness, which is available in abundance everywhere while making your way on the “Maryaada maarg(the path of discipline)” with love for God is Aanandasadhana. The “Satya Pravesh” and “Prem Pravaas” guide every living being by holding their hand, to make their life most beautiful and efficient, while the Anandsadhana enables their efforts to get divine help. Saadhana does not mean any strict, rigorous act. It is an effort to connect the Parmeshwar’s Astha-Beej-Aishwarya and the Parmaatmaa’s Nav-Ankur-Aishwarya, in order to get the Nav-Vidha-Nirdhar into one’s life successfully.
Shreemad-Purusharth Grantharaaj’s work –
When you sincerely yearn, the three paths of the “Satya-Pravesh”, “Prem Pravas” and “Anandsadhna” unite and complete the human life, whether it is a requirement in an ordinary family life or a necessity on a spiritual level.
