Where can I buy Shri Gondavalekar Maharaj’s books ?
4:30pm to 5:30pm – what is this? You may be wondering from the title of this post,isn’t it?
At Malad (w),mumbai mathh (and even most of the other maths / temples) of Shree Maharaj,a regular reading of Holy scripts like,Bhagwat Geeta,Dnyaneshwari,Nath-Bhagwat,Daas-Bodh,Biography of Shree Maharaj,365-Discourses,is done. This program is pursued since past more than seventy years.
During the program all the followers quietly listen to the reader,at the same time they all keep enchanting the name with use of a rosary (malaa). The regular followers,who wish to offer their services,keep doing their regular activities while the ‘Reading’ goes on. It gives a great feeling to enchant the divine name of Lord Raam,while listening to the reading of holy scripts and at the same time watching at the life photograph of Shree Maharaj. Most of you may be aware that the Photograph of Shree Maharaj,established at Malad is very old. Even the Mathh is older that eighty years old (initially the place of Malad mathh was a home of Shree Bhausaheb Ketkar).
Before leaving in Yr. 1913,Shree Maharaj promised shree Bausaheb Ketkar,about his reappearance after 12 years. Accordingly Shree Maharaj reappeared in Vanirup Awatar. In this reappearance Shree delivered his precious discourses for about 45yrs at this place (1925-1969).
The place is so Divine that one always gets lost while chanting the divine name of Lord Raam. Many senior followers,saints have visited the place. The regular discourses of H. H. Shree Belsare Baba are well-known to all. Some of the senior followers do have the ‘Notes’,‘Recordings’ of these celestial sessions.
Shree Raamanand Maharaj,Shree Sridhar Swamiji,H. H. Dr. Kurtakoti and many enlightened soles have visited the place to discuss with Shree Maharaj. Initially the place was like a wooden castle / bungles,but later it was converted into a regular ‘Reinforced Concrete’ building. All the important festivals in the Sampradaya are celebrated here (like Daas-Navami,Guru Paurnima,Datta-Jayanti,Shree Raam Navami,Hanuman Yanati etc.). Many folowers staying in the surrounding areas,daily visit the place at Morning for ‘Darshan’,and then proceed to their offices. A few,visit the Math for Darshan in the evening (while returning from their offices),and return back to home after the Arati at 7:00pm. (this Mandir / Mathh,opens at about 7:00am in morning and is closed at 11;00am,again it is opened at 16:00pm till 19:30pm). During the special events / festivals the time of the routine is slightly changed / modified.
This year the Guru-Paurnima utsav will be celebrated from 18th July till 25th July 2010. During the festival (all seven days) the divine name will be chanted by the followers ‘round-the-clock’ (i.e. 24hrs,thus total 24 x 7 ~ 190 hrs !!)
Those who visit the place between 4:30pm – 5:30pm have experienced complete satisfaction – because during this time,the tongue is busy in chanting name,hands are busy either is holding rosary or in offering services at feet of Shree Maharaj,ears are busy in listening to the holy script,and mind is busy in analysing what heard. Thus the body – and – mind both are busy in the name of god.
So do not miss the great opportunity of NAAM.

|| ShreeRaam Samartha ||
About eight years back (in Yr 2002),the admin members got a chance to meet one of the senior Sadhak and follower of Shree Maharaj,at Vile-Parle,mumbai. His name is Dr. W. R. Antarkar.
Dr. Antarkar and his father are closely associated to Shree Maharaj,and used to visit at Malad Mathha,where Shree Maharaj used to deliver his celestial discourses (Vanirup Avatar). After the session Shree used to discuss on various issues with the followers. The issues contained various topics –right from normal life to a divine life of saints. In those days Dr. Antarkar was following his Ph.D. thesis. The topic was ‘Shree Adya Sankaracharya and his literature’. But during the discourses of Shree Maharaj,the young student of Ph.D. noticed that the thoughts by Shree Maharaj expressed in Regional language (Marathi) and the thoughts expressed by Shree Adya Sankaracharya in Sankrit (an old holi language of Gods),are the same.
He always used to get amazed on this observation. Once Dr. Antarkar came to know that one of the senior disciple of Shree Maharaj,has arrived in Mumbai,he was H. H. Dr. Kurtakoti,who was holding a position of Sankarachrya of Karveer Pith,at that time. This was a golden opportunity for the young Ph.D. student to know about the literature and facts about Shree Adya Sankaracharya. Hence he decided to take a purmission of Shree Maharaj to see H. H. Dr. Kurtakoti. But Dr. Antarkar,was hesitating to ask Shree Maharaj,because the family members were also insisting (pressing him) to get purmission for them to meet H. H. dr. Kurtakoti. When,Shri. Antarkar,actually arrived at Malad,in the first sentense Shree Maharaj said,“You go and meet Shri MahaBhagwat,. . . but go alone !”,on this all the family members got disapointed,but Shri Antarkar felt very happy,because he was to discuss on Ph.d. thesis with H. H. Dr. Kurtakoti. Also Shri. Antarkar felt surprised as without knowing any background how Shree Maharaj solved his unspelt problem.
Later Dr. Antarkar went to see H. H. Dr. Kurtakoti,when he arrived at the place,he was expecting that Shree Sankaracharya (Karveer pith) will discuss about only Shree Adya Sankarcharya. But in reality nothing such happened. . . H.H. Dr. Kurtakoti kept on discussing about Shree Maharaj only. When the young Ph.D. student asked him about the same,H. H. Sankaracharya (karveer pith) said,“thoughts of Shree Maharaj and Shree Adya Sankarachrya are same !!”on this Dr. Antarkar felt very very happy. He returned back to home. Started working on his thesis with full dedication. Soon he could complete the thesis. This thesis is published by ‘Sankara Matham,at Matunga,mumbai’. It is available for sale there.
During the meeting with the administators of this site,Dr. Antarkar,shared many many expereinces about Shree Maharaj.
- During the time of Shree Maharaj,one of the sincer follower,namely Shri Nagappa used to take care of all the belongngs of Shree Maharaj. But after Shree Maharaj’s Maha-samadhi,Nagappa,did not shared any information / experience with any other followers. But young Dr. Antarkar was aware about the richness experience of this old fellow. Hence after dinner,late in the night he used to call Shri Nagappa to his room. They used to ask many questions about Shree Maharaj to him. Initially Shri Nagappa used refuse to share the information saying that he has forgotten every thng. But as the time used to elapse he used to start sharing many unique spiritual expereinces with Dr. Antarkar and others present in the room.
In our meeting Dr. Antarkar gave lots of information to the Admin team. He also showed us the place where he offers worship. He showed us many old books,compiled by him regarding Shree Maharaj. If fact his entire house was full of books. At the end of the meeting,Dr. Antarkar said,“In my career I did many many things –but now I have stopped all the things –and I practice only the Divine Name of God”…
Hope we’ll have more and more such devoted followers,in this society to keep our Moral at the higest level.
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).
(Late) Shri Anna and Sau. Wartikar
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.
Book 'Annanchya Goshti'
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.
