Guruji BirthDay Celebrations

September 26, 2010

Birthday celebrations of our beloved Guruji, the divine soul born to guide the destinies of those fortunate persons who came into contact with him, fell on 26th September. It was an occasion to celebrate for his disciples who gathered at the residence of Guruji at Visakhapatnam. A day before Guruji birthday (25-Sep-2010) homam was conducted on the terrace of Guruji's Apartments, by a one of Guruji's disciples with Sri Guru Mantra { Ka-e-i-la-hrim-amrita ha-sa-ka-ha-la-hrim-ananda sa-ka-la-hrim-janani} for 50000 times between 5:30 PM till 1:30 AM.


The celebrations included the following:

  1. Welcome to Guruji and Amma, Devipuram Veda Pathasala students
  2. Shodasa Upacharams (Sixteen sevas) to Guruji and Amma
  3. Devotees offering flowers to Guruji and Amma feet with Gurunamavali, Sri Guru mantra recitation
  4. Guruji Bhashan
  5. Cake cutting
  6. Natyopacharam to Guruji and Amma (Guruji's disciples)
  7. DVD Release: DVD on 'Guru Purnima 2010', 'Guru Charitam', 'Abhishekam' & 'Saraswathi Tantra' was released by Devipuram Media Lab. (Thanks to the hard work of Madhavi)
  8. Prasadam and Gana Kacheyri by Smt. Pavani
The terrace of the Building was colorfully decorated and devotees started gathering from 4 PM onwards. Around 5.30 PM when Guruji and Amma arrived they were welcomed by the students of Devipuram Veda Pathasala with Guru stothram from Sri Guru Gita. Shodasa upacharams (Sixteen sevas) were performed to Guruji and Amma by devotees with the new SRI Gurumantram {Ka-e-i-la-hrim-amrita ha-sa-ka-ha-la-hrim-ananda sa-ka-la-hrim-janani} strengthened with Panchadasi.
The atmosphere reverberated with the mantra which all devotees repeated. After Paada Puja, Guruji addressed the gathering. He said his birthday is the birthday of all of us as it is the birthday of Guru i.e. Lord Siva and Adiparashakti. Moreover Guru is always in the heart of his/her devotees so it is a common birthday celebration and everybody is to be greeted.
In his Birthday message he advocated the following for his devotees: 1. Repeat the Panchadasi Gurumantram at least 108 times daily OR listen to the newly upload "Audio" file to the website with the name SriGuru.mp3 and sing along with the music.
2. Do LIKHITA Mantrajapam. Write the Mantram 54 times on the printed leaflet on which the first line contains a fascimile of the mantram in Guruji's handwriting and send the leaflet to Devipuram with Rs 27 (Rupees Twenty seven).The money will be used for a good cause.
3. If you can't send it still no problem,
You can use those papers to pack Kumkum distributing to other devotees who visit your home so that they can also get the LIKITA JAPAM blessings (or) b. You can offer it into Homam taking place any place by yourself (or) c. When sent to Devipuram, they will be placed below the new Khadgamala Idols bottom along with Yantra
4. Regarding accommodation @ Devipuram:
Since many people said in past that they don't find good / comfortable facilities to stay overnight at Devipuram, SRI VILLA is built spending lot of money. Now it is for the devotees to promote occupancy of SRI VILLA.They should impress upon their relatives and friends that staying for three nights in Devipuram will be of immense help to relieve worry and tension and will also help for spiritual advancement, and send them to stay in SRI VILLA.
They can celebrate functions in their families at SRI VILLA where there are facilities to stay and function halls to celebrate and a modern kitchen for delicious and hygienic food.
After Guruji's speech, the Birthday cake was cut by Guruji who offered the first piece to Amma. After cake cutting, Kumari Pavani rendered a melodious Birthday song and devotees danced happily. The celebrations came to a close with a delicious dinner. Devipuram Media Lab team provided a LIVE broadcast of Guruji's birthday and "Yes it was great success". As it was on trial basis, we were unable to give enough notice to all the disciples. The credit for LIVE broadcast goes to Mr. Bhargav. Kindly refer to the following link for videos pertaining to the birthday celebrations:
