What is meaning of RAMRAJYA?

THE REIGN AND KINGDOM OF SHREERAM, 

THE SOCIAL ORDER OF AYODHYA


Ayodhyapati-Shreeram-Rajya-Ramrajya

THE REIGN AND KINGDOM OF SHREERAM, THE SOCIAL ORDER OF AYODHYA


The Ramrajya means the reign, the kingdom and the general circumstances (the ‘Rajya’) that Shri Ram gave to Ayodhya. Moulding the people on the lines of the subjects of Ayodhya; to make of them, what the citizens of Ayodhya were; creating a society and social order like Ayodhya had, grooming every single individual from this point of view leading to a corresponding response from the human community in its entirety - that is what the Ramrajya means” 

“When the subjects (the people of the kingdom) are happy, they are not sad, not miserable, not helpless, not starved or hungry, they are not targets for abuse and contempt, they are not kicked around, the reign or the prevailing state is called the Ramrajya”,
said Sadguru Shree Aniruddha Bapu in His special discourse on 6th May 2010 as he spoke about the Ramrajya, His dream, His aim, His word and His motto, all for His friends’ sakes - our sakes.

And so we understand that the Ramrajya is as much a ‘state of affairs’ at the general level as it is a ‘state of mind’ (mind as in mental capacities, inner resources of a person) at the particular level. This is a destination, a situation we have to attain and so ushering in the Ramrajya calls for committed and consistent effort at both the individual and the collective levels. 

The journey to the Ramrajya is also of utmost important as it means approaching the Ramrajya. What should we do while on the journey?

Sadguru Shree Aniruddha Bapu guides us, grooms us and prepares us for this beautiful occurrence. 

The Ramrajya will be experienced at the following five levels and so necessitates preparation at all the five levels.

1. The personal or the individual level
2. Our near and dear ones who truly love us.
3. The social level.
4. The level of the dharma.
(Aniruddha Bapu defines dharma in His work ‘Satyapravesh’, the first of the three volumes of the Shreemadpurushartha Grantharaj as ‘the principle assumes and helps to preserve humanness in the outer and inner world of man and that is the very basis of intrinsically normal and natural human life’)
5. At the level of Bharatvarsha and the establishment of the Ramrajya at the universal level.


Bapu announced the following projects that ensure growth and preparation to usher in the Ramrajya or rather to arrive at this state.
Apart from the above he also announced
The Shree Rana-chandika Prapatti for men and the Shree Mangal-Chandika Prapatti for women (Prapatti is surrender that relieves of disaster or calamity), that will strengthen them and make of them both, soldiers at the worldly and the spiritual plane.and The Chandika Exaltation Army for Resuscitation and Rehabilitation with its basic mission of the rejuvenation of the unique strengths of the excellent Indian culture and of their impacts and of course regaining for them their due glorious status

Chandika
Chandikamata at Shree Gurukshetram Khar
together, the new projects are actually a perspective or a lifestyle that we need to adopt as part of the journey to the Ramrajya. 

To sum up simply, at the personal level, offering 24 minutes out of 24 hours to God, the Chandika upasana – the prapatti once a year apart from the regular recitation of the Gurukshetram mantra apart from the simple and easy changes in our daily lives will assure us of the citizenship of the Ramrajya, it will make us legitimately entitles to the entry permit so to say of this terrain. 

“With firm belief and love in your heart, hold on to the faith that I am your well-wisher, a well-wisher who strives and toils for your well being and without the slightest expectation from you….” says the One who is going to take us along, to this wonderful state, ‘a world that He will fill with happiness and abound with joy all that be in it’, a reality that He dreamed for us and the Truth that He will realize for us. 

Yes, the Ramrajya will happen, 108%

How we celebrate Ramnavami Utsav?

How we celebrate Ramnavami Utsav?
Lord Ram was born on Chaitra Navmi. Ram means Happiness, Ram means Synergy, Ram also means Restraint and Ram means a Role Model. Since 1996, every year, Shree Aniruddha Upasana Foundation celebrates Ramnavmi with much happiness, enthusiasm and in an environment that is full of devotion

Shree Sahastradhara Abhishek:

Sahastradhara Abhishek is performed by chanting mantras on 'Renukamata’s Tandala' by using a special Abhishekpaatra. It is indeed a great opportunity for all Shraddhavans to watch the Abhishek Sohala and listen to the mantras chanted.

Shree Sairam Sahastra Yadnya:

In the morning, the ritual of Yadnya starts. This Yadnya is called ‘Shree Sairam Sahastra Yadnya’. Shree Deepshikha is brought from Sai Niwas to the venue. Every devotee can make an offering while chanting the Tarak Mantra. Due to the offerings, one’s body and mind obtain positive vibrations. Similarly, because the Mind also gets strengthened, the sins of one’s previous births get eradicated as well. ‘Aapatti Nivarak Sameedha’ is available during this Yadnya.

Shree Ramvaradayini Mahishasurmardini Navaratri Poojan:




With the blessings of “Aadimata Mahishasurmardini”, Ram’s victory over Ravan was achieved. This story has been narrated in detail by Shree Aniruddha in Shree Matruvatsyalavindanam. Thus, the Poojan of ‘Shree Ramavardayini Aadimata Mahishasurmardini’ is performed on this day.

Ramjanma (The Event Of Birth Of Lord Shree Ram):

All shraddhavan ladies celebrating Ram Janma and His Naming ceremony in presence of Sadguru Aniruddha
In the presence of Sadguru Shree Aniruddha, at 12 O’ clock noon the occasion of Shree Ramjanma is celebrated in a traditional way. The Cradle that was used for Bapu when he was a baby is used for performing this festivity. Ladies and Gents both swing the Palna (cradle) while singing “Kuni Govind Ghya Kuni Gopal Ghya….” song (Ramjanma – Palna (i.e. lullaby sung for Lord Shree Ram)). After this, the naming ceremony of Ram takes place and “Sunthavada” is distributed as Prasad (Communion). This Cradle is kept on the stage the whole day for devotees to pay their respects to.

Shree Sai Satpoojan:

Three things, viz, ‘Rudraksha garland, Trishul and Shaligram’ which were given by Shree Sainaath to Hemadpant (writer of Shri Sai satcharitra) are then brought to the venue for Poojan. People keep chanting ‘Shree Ghorakashtodharan Stotra’ the whole day and perform ‘Shree Saisat Poojan’ as well.

Shree Sainath Mahimnaabhishek:

An Abhishekh is performed on the Idol of Shree Sainath called “Shree Sai Sadashiv Idol.” This ritual is performed through the process of ‘Shree Sainath Mahimnabhishek.’ Every devotee can participate in performing this Abhishek. This Abhishek is particularly useful and beneficial for the health of all members of a family and in particular for children of the household.

Talibharan:



Ramnavami-Sai-Talibharan

Talibharan is performed on the day of Ramnavami. Talibharan is initiated by Sadguru Shree Aniruddha. In the midst of various musical instruments and while chanting ‘Shree Sairam jap’ (“Raksha Raksh Sairam”) this ritual is performed. When one performs Talibahran, one gets as much blessings as one would get after feeding 5 hungry souls. Similarly, the Prasad (Communion) is the most sought after among the nine types of Prasad (Communions). The participation in this event also is equally important.

Akhand Jap:

“Om Ramaay Rambhadray Ramchandray Namah
“Om Ramaay Rambhadray Ramchandray Namah
On the auspicious day of Ramnavami, a mantra “Om Ramaay Rambhadray Ramchandray Namah” is chanted continuously all through the day. This ritual is also performed in the presence of Sadguru Shree Aniruddha. All those who chant this mantra put Bukka on each other’s forehead first by greeting that person with a Namaskar. 
The sentiments are supreme behind this action. The person on whose forehead the Bukka is applied symbolizes Bhakta shrestha Pundalik and the person who applies Bukka, also uses his hands which are symbolic of the hands of Bhakta Shrestha Pundalik. With these sentiments all those who sit for chanting apply Bukka on each other’s forehead and then start the chanting. All those who witness this, derive immense and unique happiness.

Sai Satcharitra Adhayayan Kaksha:

Saisatcharitra Adhyayan aadyapipa Kaksha

For this event, a separate area is demarked as “Aadyapipadada” Section. In this section continuous reading of Sai Satcharitra is performed. Aadyapipadada is none other than Shree Sureshchandra Pandurang Dattopadhye. An ardent devotee of Shree Sainath and a true follower of Bapu! 
Every year, he used to perform Parayan of ‘Shree Sai satcharitra’ four times i.e. on Ramnavami, Gurupoornima, Krushnashtami, and Dassera. This was his regimen for almost 60 years. He used to end his reading of a week in the afternoon on the day of Krushnashtami. He left for heavenly abode exactly on the day of Krushnashtami. This is the Abhisamvahan of Sainath that he performed all through his life. As described in the 11th chapter, “Akahand Ram Ladhal” turned out to be true in his life. Every devotee who enters this section resolves to try to become a devotee like him before he begins reading chapters from ‘Shree Sai Satcharitra’.

Shree Aniruddha Handi Prasad:

On this auspicious day, every devotee can benefit from obtaining Prasad that is touched and blessed by Shree Aniruddha Bapu himself. While this is being cooked, Bapu himself adds the required ingredients to the Handi (Big Pot) and he himself stirs it as well. This is the most unique thing about this Prasad. This Handi Prasad reminds every one of the Handi Prasad as described in ‘Shree Sai Satcharitra’. This Prasad not only tastes unique but the taste is indescribable as well. Each and every devotee does not leave the venue unless he takes this Prasad. 

In the night, after the culmination of ‘Shree Sairam Sahastra Yadnya’ and after ‘Mahaarti’ this festival comes to an end. Every devotee can individually, personally participate in this unique festival celebrated on the day of Ramnavami.
