YUGA RISHI SHRIRAM SHARMA ACHARYA DWELLING in a SECiRET HIMALAYA MOUNTAIN REGION
The question arises that since HH Gurudeva Yuga Rishi Shriram Sharma Acharya’s spiritual practices were sailing smoothly and that his householder lifestyle was not posing any problems for it, what need was there for him to renounce hearth and home so as to dwell incognito in some far off region of profound solitude? It is very natural that this curiosity arises in the mind of each beloved member of the ‘Akhand Jyoti Family’.
(TAKEN FROM A DIARY WRITTEN BY HIM WITH REFERENCE TO HIS SPIRITUAL PRACTICES WHILE LIVING IN SOLITUDE)
In the editorial section of Akhand Jyoti Magazine (June, 1960 AD) HH Bhagwati Devi Sharmaji (holy consort of Yuga Rishi Shriram Sharma Acharya) writes that by the time this magazine’s current volume shall reach the hands of beloved readers Revered Gurudeva Yuga Rishi Shriram Sharma Acharya would have already left for his journey to reside incognito in the secret mysterious region of the Himalaya Mountains. After celebrating the festival of Gayatri Jayanti on 4th June 1960 AD he shall leave for fulfilling his sacred resolve and for 1 year shall immerse himself in special Sadhana or spiritual practices.
A LIFE OF INTENSE SPIRITUAL AUSTERITIES:
By itself the entire life of Revered Gurudeva Yuga Rishi Shriram Sharma Acharya has been nothing but penance personified. That time devoted daily by ordinary people to eke out an income was used by him for performing intense spiritual practices. In front of every lay person Revered Gurudeva Yuga Rishi Shriram Sharma Acharya has showcased his life as an experiment and supplication wherein despite remaining a householder, despite eking out a living man can execute world welfare tasks along with performing spiritual practices. Thus it is very much possible to attain desired progress in the materially and spiritually beneficial mode of living. Ordinarily people believe that if one is a householder world welfare tasks and spiritual practices are nothing but obstacles and hindrances. They infer that only celibates (Brahmacharis) or Sanyasis (ocher robed ascetics) can succeed in spiritual way of life and that those trapped in the forest of a mundane family life this path is extremely difficult to succeed in. Such despair on the part of householders no doubt can be warded off by quoting examples from great scriptures, proof and sound logic (Tarka) but Revered Gurudeva Yuga Rishi Shriram Sharma Acharya felt it best to exhibit his own householder cum spiritual life as an example for others to follow suit. He remained a householder throughout his life and proved that for spiritual uplifting and advancement in no way can a householder’s way of life pose an obstacle in attaining success but in fact on manifesting a superb situation family way of life can prove very helpful for attaining the spiritual goal.
DID THE HOUSEHOLDER WAY OF LIFE PROVE TO BE A HINDRANCE IN ATTAINING SPIRITUAL ADVANCEMENT?
The question arises that since Revered Gurudeva Yuga Rishi Shriram Sharma Acharya’s spiritual practices were sailing smoothly and that his householder lifestyle was not posing any problems for it, what need was there for him to renounce hearth and home so as to dwell incognito in some far off region of profound solitude? It is very natural that this curiosity arises in the mind of every beloved member of the ‘Akhand Jyoti Family’. When Revered Gurudeva Yuga Rishi Shriram Sharma Acharya informed me about this journey to live in solitude my (his revered wife) mind too asked this question: Is it that householder way of living is posing obstacles for him? Am I as his consort putting obstacles on his path either knowingly or unknowingly? By itself the day I entered this house after getting married to him I have felt this to be a live sacred pilgrim spot. I felt that images of gods placed here talk, eat, walk etc and as a result my inner psyche got molded into a pristine pure devotee like sentiments. As per his sacred aspirations only I made efforts to mold myself and act accordingly. I rendered my family circumstances too in this mold so that no obstacles cam in the way of fulfilling his sacred mission. Yet humans are but humans. It is natural that they err. It is possible that some family oriented cause was such that he had to leave hearth and home and live incognito in solitude in some far off region.
I placed my doubt in front of Revered Gurudeva Yuga Rishi Shriram Sharma Acharya because lest our home proved to be a reason of discomfort and an obstacle I would say it was failure as far as my life’s goal was concerned. Along with this these efforts of his too would fail wherein he wanted to set an example to the world that a householder way of life can never pose obstacles when we pursue spiritual goals and execute selfless world service. In fact according to him family life can aid in such endeavors immensely. Thus Revered Gurudeva Yuga Rishi Shriram Sharma Acharya’s proclamation of going away to dwell in solitude shall prove efforts of both of us as utter failure only. Under such circumstances when even before successfully executing his duty towards his 2 small children he was thinking of renouncing hearth and home and live incognito definitely it proves household way of life as mediocre and vain.
FAILURE REAPED DUE TO EFFORTS MADE THUS FAR:
Revered Gurudeva Yuga Rishi Shriram Sharma Acharya is highly capable and powerful. Innumerable miraculous success has been witnessed in his long life span. Lest his experiment of proving householder way of life as a good help in attaining the spiritual goal and executing selfless world service goes down the drain in vain then although this failure cannot harm him in any way because remaining successes are enough to render his life radiantly illumined but since my entire life revolved around one experiment only viz. to mold myself in accordance with his sacred aspirations and create our family environment too on this great foundation, if this effort fails on my part it shall be a very sad time for me and can be a cause of bowing my head down in shame. I had no zest to live such a failure reaping life. I had informed Revered Gurudeva Yuga Rishi Shriram Sharma Acharya at that time itself when he had placed before me his intention to live incognito and in solitude far away from our home.
I had also discussed with him that the reaction of his leaving home thus would affect thousands of his beloved devoted followers also. They too would ponder thus that if Revered Gurudeva Yuga Rishi Shriram Sharma Acharya could not fulfill his goal leading a householder life it shall be impossible for us all too to succeed. When he had to choose leaving hearth and home in order to carry out austerities and spiritual practices then this path shall be apt for us followers too. Thinking thus, thousands of householders following in his footsteps, in order to render a high stature family life as a beacon light for others shall all go in vain, despite the fact that they are tasting good measure of success in this glorious endeavor.
Today Revered Gurudeva Yuga Rishi Shriram Sharma Acharya’s life is not limited for him only but that innumerable people are getting light of wisdom from him. Hence if an erroneous step is taken it shall badly affect all those who were getting the getting light of wisdom from him. Hence with reference to the reaction of his decision to live incognito and in solitude far away from our home I very humbly tried to explain to him and requested him prayerfully to think over his decision again. Of course being a woman I did have inner weakness of attachment to him etc. Hence naturally along with faith and devotion towards him I was emotionally attached to him as any wife would be towards her husband. So again it was natural that physical proximity to him was heavenly and separation from him was hell like in nature. Despite this I promised him that all that I was discussing with him was not inspired by the above inner weaknesses of mine. In fact on many such occasions previously I did control my inner emotions. After reminding him of things like vowing to work hard daily, self sacrifice, remaining celibate for life etc I agreed that although I have many weaknesses yet they are not such that they would pose obstacles in the way of sacred ideals so dear to him and the glorious path of life chosen by him. Hence I prayed to him not to believe emotional attachment to him as the reason for my humbly opposing him leaving home for an incognito life of solitude. Apart from this whatever facts pertaining to it also must be taken into account.
AN OBSTACLE SHALL COME IN THE WAY OF GUIDANCE:
So many devotees immersed in spiritual practices while regularly receiving guidance from Revered Gurudeva Yuga Rishi Shriram Sharma Acharya were walking ahead on the path of progress. Hence once he left for living in lone solitude will not this progress of theirs get obstructed? Shall not the sequence of attaining light of wisdom and peace from him by people afflicted with worldly strife and troubles break apart? A huge congregation of lay public had so far taken help of such a powerful personality as Revered Gurudeva Yuga Rishi Shriram Sharma Acharya for warding off their mundane and spiritual problems. Hence if he left them all will it not be a terrible shock for these devoted followers leading them to gloomy despair only? So many people feel him to be their very beloved soul being the head of such a gigantic world family. These devotees swarm around him like bees near sweet nectarine honey. Hence will not their innocent sacred emotions towards Revered Gurudeva Yuga Rishi Shriram Sharma Acharya experience unbearable pain of physical separation from him?
In order that programs conducted for Era Neo Creation and Transformation by Gayatri Tapobhumi and Akhand Jyoti offices run smoothly Revered Gurudeva Yuga Rishi Shriram Sharma Acharya’s holy presence too was most required. Both institutions are getting guidance today from him only. Hence if he dwells in solitude, far away from us these institutions’ smooth functioning shall go haywire. Without his active cooperation in the very gigantic endeavor of great character building after uprooting individual and world society based taints within the program of ethical and cultural uplifting the world over shall definitely falter. No doubt the 24,000 Kundi or pyre Gayatri Yajnas were conducted successfully yet the advancement of the Vedic tradition of living a Yajna oriented lifestyle in India yet remained to be executed. By leaving such great tasks half fulfilled by heading for an incognito lone living away from the hub of society a big requirement of our country India shall get harmed.
DOUBTS GET CLARIFIED SATISFACTORILY:
All these doubts of mine were heard by Revered Gurudeva Yuga Rishi Shriram Sharma Acharya very attentively. By itself, he is very subtle sighted he very cautiously thinks about various matters in a farsighted manner and only after deep cogitation does he draw any conclusion. For quite a few days regarding this decision of living incognito in solitude his subtle vision was fully at work and only after mulling over its good-bad repercussions that he had placed before us his intentions. Yet when I also placed before him my logic he again started rethinking over his decision for quite a bit of time. But he felt that his previous decision was correct and hence repeated his thinking again. He also answered and clarified doubts of mine. Many a times his arguments could not be properly understood by me and many a times those doubts persisted in my mind. Yet since I have lived by his side for such a long time period I know well that behind his thinking, decisions and conclusions some Extra Sensory Power (ESP) is at work and their results on an average are exactly as per his great thinking. At the time of commencing the establishment of Gayatri Tapobhumi, organizing the All World Gayatri Family, 1000 Kundi or pyre Gayatri Yajnas, 24,000 Yajnas conducted all over India, publishing the 4 voluminous Vedas, the worldwide program of Era Neo Creation and Transformation etc considering the minuscule means available forgetting succeeding in these tasks one could not hope even to progress a few steps forward. Yet all of were mind boggled to witness that these tasks appearing impossible to succeed in previously later became easy to taste success. All these are well known episodes that actually took place. Apart from these there are innumerable other facts that not everyone is aware of but that a few of them know well that Revered Gurudeva Yuga Rishi Shriram Sharma Acharya’s inner sacred inspirations were astounding and behind them definite precepts are at work.
When he again insisted that he planned to head for an incognito solitude living I had no difficulty in accepting its utility value and a dire need to do so. My prime duty was to render his thinking easy and facile. I am doing exactly this. Any task given to me by him I would devotedly take up with eyes closed without caring for the fact that my capability was not all that great and that my power to succeed in it too was weak. Even today I am executing these duties. In future too I shall continue to do so. All doubts in my mind were clarified at the personal level and that his decision was akin to Vedic Injunctions. But very much like me many readers of ‘Akhand Jyoti Magazine’ could harbor doubts like I did since very much akin to me they looked up to Revered Gurudeva Yuga Rishi Shriram Sharma Acharya with profound faith, respect and a sense of soul oneness. All of them had a loving right over him since they looked upon him as their divine father. All of them can place forth their mind’s anguish everyone could experience a lot of mental stress because of separation from him. Everyone would feel that if he left for a life of solitude only harm would come their way. Hence all these devoted followers would like to pose these questions to him directly in the manner I myself did. All the answers given by him regarding the above doubts discussed are worth deeply mulling over. Hence these are being penned in this particular article.
FOR INTENSE AUSTERITIES SOLITUDE IS MANDATORY:
Revered Gurudeva Yuga Rishi Shriram Sharma Acharya opines that spiritual practice/Sadhana and austerities or Tapasya are 2 different aspects. The power and limits of both are different. Spiritual practices can be done in a congregational manner wherein the Food and Mental Sheaths dwelling in the devotee’s subtle body can get purified, nourished and become well advanced. Thus the qualities, actions, inner nature etc can undergo a sanctifying transformation (Sattvik). Due to inner purity resulting from this sanctifying transformation the divine light of Almighty God enters the inner realm of the devotee and thus it gets divinely illumined. He marches ahead on the path of soul uplifting and attains peace too. When the Food Sheath is nourished well via spiritual practice the body becomes disease free, attains a healthy long life span, imbibes immense power of endurance and can face untold hardships with calmness and serenity. Its radiance intensifies and while fighting difficulties steadfastly creates apt efforts to reap success. Via spiritual practices based on the Mental Sheath mental distortions, bad thoughts and tainted inner qualities get uprooted. One’s memory power and intellectual powers augment n fold. Mental restlessness is warded off and the psyche becomes focused in a one pointed manner. One’s enterprise, valor, patience, fearlessness, faith etc increase a lot in measure. Greed for amassing and enjoying sense titillating objects and selfish desires come under one’s apt control. By obstructing the mind from treading the tainted path veering it towards the path of truth and greatness vile psychic imprints (Kusanskars) gathered from innumerable previous lifetimes can be sanctified. The supreme director of the body and the chief creator of mental thoughts is the psyche. By undergoing spiritual practices for purifying the Mental Sheath when the mind comes under one’s optimal control the task of soul neo creation becomes straightforward and easy. After this, man can mold himself in tandem with desired apt situations. He can create within him desired specialties. In this manner man can become the author and creator of his destiny.
THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN MEDITATION/WORSHIP OF ALMIGHTY GOD (UPASANA) AND AUSTERITIES OR TAPASYA:
Revered Gurudeva Yuga Rishi Shriram Sharma Acharya also said that meditation, worship etc and spiritual practices that can be done even while living a life of congregation, via it by mastering our Food and Mental Sheaths, by creating many Sattvik (sacred) specialties in our personal lives in order to attain life’s true goal progress can definitely be attained. Thus by treading this path slowly but surely God or Self Realization also can be attained. For ordinary lay public and pious householders this very path of meditation, worship etc and spiritual practices are easy and apt. The 3 Yogas of Action, Wisdom and Devotion come under the aegis of Upsana or path of meditation, worship etc but in comparison to Upasana the path of Tapasya or austerities is higher in stature and more powerful. Within the jurisdiction of the subtle realm of the soul innumerable Energy Centers reside. Amongst these within the realm of Kundalini Yoga (Divine Serpent Power) the 6 Chakras (subtle plexus) are well known. But the matter is not limited to this only because subtler than these 6 Chakras (subtle plexus) dwell many ‘Energy Glands’ (knots, complexes or Granthis) in the gross and subtle bodies of human beings. In these lie hidden many specialties of their own types. By rendering these latent centers awakened and optimally active man creates such magnetic energy centers within his inner subtle nature that possess the capacity to attract nature’s and Almighty God’s innumerable divine glories (Vibhootis) spread out in the infinite cosmos, towards itself. The goal of Tapas or intense austerities is to attain these spiritual energies that not only aid in augmenting of one’s individual well being of great import but that of innumerous other people too.
Lest the environment of one’s home is sacred/Sattvik the program of Upsana or path of meditation, worship etc can go on joyously devoid of hindrances but Tapas or intense austerities is a special type of scientific process. For its success an environment of lone solitude is most required. In a congregative lifestyle varied types of thoughts, emotions, effects etc emerge. Via these the reaction noted in the mind may not pose obstacles in the way of Upsana or path of meditation, worship etc yet they create hurdles on the path of Tapas or intense austerities. For Tapas or intense austerities each one has to dwell in lone solitude. Demigods, humans and demons for various aims have executed Tapas or intense austerities many a times. As a result of it in exchange of those spiritual efforts attained desired boons from Mother Nature and beloved Almighty God who is our Divine Father. Yet all this took place far away from home in mountains, jungles etc oozing with lone solitude. Hence while staying at home Upsana or path of meditation, worship etc can go on joyously devoid of hindrances but Tapas or intense austerities cannot be done at home.
TAPAS OR AUSTERITIES DOES NOT MEAN SANYAS OR ASCETIC WAY OF LIFE WEARING THE OCHER ROBE:
Tapas or intense austerities do not mean Sanyas. Sanyasis are known to leave their home, they wear ocher robes and travel everywhere in the world. They cannot re enter a householder way of life after taking Sanyas Deeksha or initiation. But as far as Tapas or intense austerities is concerned you can again take up a householder way of life. There are many examples of householders who after attaining required spiritual powers on executing Tapas or intense austerities away from home in solitude returned to worldly family way of living. In ancient eras so many Rishis would do difficult Tapas or intense austerities and a major number of them were householders. Maharshis like Vasishtha, Vishwamitra, Lomus, Jamadagni, Atri, Gautam, Yajnavalkya etc had sired many children and along with their pious wives although leading a sacred householder’s life made arrangements for executing difficult Tapas or intense austerities in dense lonely forest regions. Bhagiratha in order to bring down River Ganga from heaven executed terrific difficult Tapas or intense austerities. When the goal of these austerities was fulfilled Bhagiratha re entered the householder way of life. Demons like Ravan, Kumbhkarana, Meghnad, Bhasmasur, Sahasrarjun etc had performed terrific austerities. They too attained desired powers and then returned to their ordinary family way of living. Goddess Parvati in order to attain a husband, child Dhruva in order to attain grandeur and Swayambhu Manu and his Queen Shatrupa in order to sire a divine son performed difficult Tapas or intense austerities. After successfully attaining desired boons they returned to family life.
Revered Gurudeva Yuga Rishi Shriram Sharma Acharya also said that difficult Tapas or intense austerities and Sanyas are 2 different matters. He was neither taking Sanyas wherein the question of turning away from responsibility of children sired by him crops up and neither was he permanently ‘shying’ away from social living. Thus the question of obstacles coming in the way of getting guidance from him did not arise. Due to difficult Tapas or intense austerities the energies of the devotee becomes more intense, subtle and sanctified. Hence despite living far away in solitude Revered Gurudeva Yuga Rishi Shriram Sharma Acharya could give inner sacred inspirations to one and all when required (akin to telepathy). In mundane tasks speech and materials are required but in spiritual tasks no special need of these arises. On the basis of subtle consciousness this task can be executed despite staying far away physically. Despite living incognito in a lone manner the task of giving inner inspiration to people as and when required shall go on unabated.
Tantra based austerities cannot be done at home and hence are carried out in lonely spots like graveyards etc. that too at night. In it too is the aim of avoiding noisy crowded areas. In ancient eras too people leading quite busy lives on getting due facilities would travel to some lone pilgrim spot oozing with sanctity for a small time span. In close proximity to sages, saints etc carrying out difficult Tapas or intense austerities they too would do some penance. Today the atmosphere of pilgrim spots is no longer serene and pure because there urbanization has caught up in a big way. But in ancient times pilgrim spots were set up with the aim of creating an atmosphere of purity, serenity and sacredness. Today this tradition is heading towards extinction yet the importance of penance as was noted since primordial times is the same even today and in future also this shall go on unabated.
A PROMISE GIVEN THAT IMCOMPLETE TASKS SHALL NOT COME TO A GRINDING HALT:
A need was felt to give up incomplete tasks in order to execute difficult Tapas or intense austerities in some far off lonely region because the problems faced at that time required untold measure of spiritual powers to solve them once and for all. All World Gayatri Family (HQ-Shantikunj-Haridwar-India) had commenced the program of neo awakening of ethics and culture the world over via Era Neo Creation and Transformation based tasks. These were required to be rendered gigantic and worldwide. Our country India after crossing many eras of dark gloom was now witnessing the dawn of political freedom from alien British Rule. On this very auspicious occasion in order to render India well governed many efforts in many directions were taking place. Yet for the development of our biggest wealth called spirituality not much effort was being made and thus it remained ignored. That spiritualism known to aid advancement of great glorious inner qualities that in turn rendered any community, sect etc truly great had entered the crater of total downfall. Hence only after rendering spirituality a leader, that the true greatness of humanity can be witnessed. Our land India is that of great divine saints. Its advancement can be said to be true only when Indian citizens by putting into action their great bright character and sacred ideals imbibed within not only establish true peace and joy in India but that they must guide and solve problems of the entire world harassed by unethical behavior and activities. In order to create such optimal positive circumstances All World Gayatri Family is making due efforts along with other mediums too. In these efforts a lot of zest, energy, honesty, self sacrifice and honest hard work are most required. The fulfillment of this need can take place only via inspiration given to workers in a subtle manner. In order that this inner inspiration is attained by all in a compact manner the only solution is terrific difficult austerities. In this solitude incognito life of mine efforts shall be made to attain this very energy in untold measure.
So many devotees in order to augment their will power and attain their life’s goal are making due efforts at the individual level yet these lone efforts of theirs are not sufficient and that mere vocal guidance cannot reap success. Hence the requirement is that apart from these individual spiritual practices an external energy and help must render their progress swifter in an active manner. Only then can their spiritual practices reap satisfactory success. Hence this type of external help and energy can be amassed only via terrific difficult austerities done in solitude.
MORE HELP AND COOPERATION FOR MEMBERS OF OUR WORLDWIDE FAMILY:
Just as someone can ward off another’s financial lack by donating his own wealth, just as by donating one’s blood some wounded or sick person’s life can be saved similarly a person by subtly giving a portion of energy gathered from austerities can render that person’s difficulties easy to ward off. On the basis of blessings of a great saint of penance so many incidences are reported wherein big problems of people afflicted with strife and sorrow have been solved. These blessings are not mere uttering a few words via the tongue but that in order to render it successful a required measure of one’s austerities and Punya (good deeds) have to be handed over subtly. In this world the Law of Karma is irrevocable. As a result of his good-bad deeds man faces either joy or sorrow. Lest someone is to be given more joy than what his destiny ordains or that some pain and sorrow in his destiny has to be lessened in measure then for that very potent blessings have to be showered on them. This can only happen when the vault of power of penance in the one giving blessings has been amassed in great measure and that from it he gives a certain portion of it to the one whom he blesses. There are so many people immersed in tasks of righteousness that require such help in order that the path chosen by them becomes easier to tread on. In this penance of Revered Gurudeva Yuga Rishi Shriram Sharma Acharya while dwelling in lone solitude, one of the goals is to gather a huge vault of spiritual help.
In the future in the year 1962 AD as per Indian Astrology 8 planets are going to dwell together in 1 single Zodiac Sign. At the time of the bloody Mahabharat War 7 planets had dwelled together in 1 single Zodiac Sign. The dire result of this was that 18 Akshauni Army, lay public etc died and both financial and social destruction was noted on a war footing. Hence when 8 planets dwell together in 1 single Zodiac Sign the results shall be much worse. Thus to calm down these horrific reactions so many high stature saints of penance are immersing themselves in difficult austerities. One aim of Revered Gurudeva Yuga Rishi Shriram Sharma Acharya taking up difficult lone austerities is the above also.
SELFLESSLY SERVING ONE’S COUNTRY AND HUMAN COMMUNITY:
Apart from this so many world problems confront Revered Gurudeva Yuga Rishi Shriram Sharma Acharya. At a personal level he has never aspired for heaven, salvation or Moksha and Ridhi-Sidhis or Divine Powers. In fact his only aspiration in life was to lead a pure Brahmin way of life oozing with selfless service, righteousness and sacred ideals put into practice in day to day transactions. Hence whatever he thinks and acts drips with sentiments of selfless world service so as to usher in true well being of all and sundry. At this hour of doing difficult Tapas or intense austerities these very questions stare at him. India’s ancient spiritual sciences are becoming extinct one by one and hence it is required that due research and protection be given to it. Revered Gurudeva Yuga Rishi Shriram Sharma Acharya has placed before us all the ordinary teachings of Vedas but what remained was to highlight the scientific and spiritual connotations of Vedic Mantras. This task is possible only if a subtle Yoga based vision is imbibed. And this vision can never be imbibed without Tapas or intense austerities. There is no other option apart from penance.
Regarding Gayatri Tapobhumi and Akhand Jyoti Magazine a worry exists that they may go haywire anytime in future yet Revered Gurudeva Yuga Rishi Shriram Sharma Acharya harbors no such tension. Those self sacrificing people had shouldered the duties of Gayatri Tapobhumi and Akhand Jyoti Magazine is very trustworthy and honest hard workers. They realize their responsibilities properly and shall continue to shoulder them diligently in future also. Revered Gurudeva Yuga Rishi Shriram Sharma Acharya also promised to contribute literature penned by him for the Akhand Jyoti Magazine while he lived an incognito life in solitude far away. In fact henceforth he resolved to egg on readers on the path of spirituality via guidance given by him in the Akhand Jyoti Magazine. Thus very much like Gayatri Tapobhumi the flame lamp of Akhand Jyoti Magazine shall continue to burn brightly.
MAY THE AUSPICIOUS JOURNEY OF ACHARYAJI BRING GOOD OMEN!
Revered Gurudeva Yuga Rishi Shriram Sharma Acharya shall not be in our midst at least for 1 year due to this journey of his. This time frame may be increased in future. Where exactly was he going? This he did not declare publicly but definitely it shall be the lofty Himalaya Mountains. The ancient traditions of Tapas or intense austerities have attained fulfillment from Himalaya Mountains only. Hence for conducting penance this region is apt. After the decided time frame he shall start dwelling in known regions by leaving unknown places but these days on noting the thought flow going on in his mind it seems that instead of making writings, speeches etc as the foundation of selfless public service he shall rise much higher than that and perform Tapas or intense austerities. His future program shall focus mainly on difficult Tapas or intense austerities.
All those doubts harbored by me previously were also spoken about by many readers in their letters to Revered Gurudeva Yuga Rishi Shriram Sharma Acharya but after he discussed these doubts I became doubt free. Now I had full faith that not only is his future austerities not detrimental to our country, any community etc but instead shall reap nothing but benefits.
So far he has ceaselessly immersed himself in selfless service to society and lay public. After he completes these difficult austerities in lone solitude he shall be able to execute much more such services so as to immensely benefit one and all. It is apt that he gets as much solitude for this Tapas or intense austerities. As a result he shall become that much more powerfully capable than he already is today. Thus not only the members of Akhand Jyoti Family but that he shall be able to serve Indian Religion and Culture much more potently.
No doubt Revered Gurudeva Yuga Rishi Shriram Sharma Acharya shall have to undergo immense difficulties, he shall stay far away from us in a lone manner and hence self pity emerging in our soft natured bosom is quite natural. Just thinking about us bidding him adieu wells tears in our eyes yet we are satisfied that only when the plant of righteousness is watered with such sacred tears that it blooms forth in a lush green manner. Vedmurti Revered Gurudeva Yuga Rishi Shriram Sharma Acharyaji has sacrificed every iota of his Prana Energy for keeping alit the Light of Divine Wisdom. All of us can attain contentment by offering our tears of faith and devotion at his hallowed feet. We hence humbly pray that Goddess Mother Gayatri fulfills the sacred mission of this super great saint.
