Dear Naampremi Friends,
followers of Shree Maharaj,
It gives us lots of pains to us,as we have lost a Great Sadhak,Naampremi and one of the most senior / elderly followers of Shree Maharaj on 2nd July’10-Friday eveing at NaviMumbai (Vashi),Shri P. N. Wartikar (popular called as Anna Wartikar) left this world. Shri Anna was known to most of the followers for his simple yet devotional life. He spent considerable span at places like,Pune,Mumbai and Ahmedabad (Gujarat).
After shifting to Ahmedabad,Shri Anna shared / discussed many things about the divine Name of God and thoughts of Shree Maharaj. Because of this,many lover of the Divine Name started gathering arround him. As a result of this today we see a large gathering of followers of Lord ShreeRaam,Naam and Shree Maharaj as Ahmedbad.
After passage of wife (Late. Mrs. U. P. Wartikar),Shri. Anna got shifted from Ahmedabad to Vashi. This gave a got opportunity to all his friends in Mumbai / Navimumbai to get more information about Shree Maharaj and get a guidance about the Divine Name.
Shri Anna had also travelled extensively,in context with increasing the awareness about the Divine Name. By profession Shri Anna,was a professor of mathematics;many of you may have refered to his book,titled ‘Applied Mathematics’(volume,1 and 2),published by Pune Vidyarthi Grih Prakashan. Shri Anna was one of those fortunate people,who came in contact with Shree Maharaj during Vani-Rup avatar. Shree Maharaj always used to interact with Shri Anna,about various official,personal and spiritual issues.
Most of you must have read his experiences about the Divine Name in his famous book –‘Annanchya Goshtee’,’2004-Naam Smaranika-Ahmedabad’and ‘Annanchya Vichar Lahari’.
Shri Anna followed a simple lifestyle throughout his life. He kept explaining the followers about the Divine Name of God. . . . by passage of such Elderly Sadhaka,we had lost a great support. . .
we pray Lord Shree Raam and Shree Maharaj to rest his soul in satisfaction.
