The Divine Umbrella of Shripad Shrivallabh Charitamruth.

I was introduced to the holy book “Shripad Shrivallabh Charitamrut” four years ago by my mother who is an ardent devotee of Lord Dattatreya. By Lord Shripada’s grace, I have been regularly doing the parayan of Shripad Shrivallabh Charitamrut as well as Siddhamangal Stotra since then. As accounted in the book words are really inadequate to describe the greatness of Shripad Shrivallabh.The results and experiences that one receives after reading this sacred book are extant, splendid,serene and divine. Each time I read the book, I discover new meanings and interpretations of it.My husband and I were blessed to visit the holy place of Pithapuram twice. The hiccup during both the trips was that we could somehow not get return tickets to our hometown. It was crucial that wereached our hometown on those specific dates as we had some prior work commitments. We however decided to continue with our plan, with complete faith that we would find the solution to this. By Lord Shripada’s grace, the return tickets were arranged at the last minute and the stay at the Shripad Shrivallabh Sansthan was blissful. I realized, Lord Shripada really cares for his devotees. As mentioned in the Charitamrut, nobody can enter or leave Pithapuram without the blessings and will of Lord Shripada.I would like to quote my experience of Datta Jayanti celebrations last year, which further strengthened my belief in Lord Shripada. Datta Jayanti is considered to be very auspicious and lot of devotees perform parayan of Shri Gurucharitra/Shripad Shrivallabh Charitamrut before Datta Jayanti. Datta principle is considered to be highly active on earth on the day of Datta Jayanti. I had decided that I wanted to host annadan on the day of Datta Jayanti after reading the book. This was something I had never done before, and I was worried about the menu and the amount of food to be cooked. The venue and the number of people attending the event was also uncertain.My husband and I inquired at various rental halls, but they were all booked on that particular date. I was a bit disheartened and earnestly prayed to Lord Shripada to help me plan the arrangements.Finally my prayers were answered just two days before Datta Jayanti. We got a temple hall to host our annadan prasad. The temple priests guided and helped us in the proceedings. The temple hall had a magnificent idol of Shri Sai Baba decorated beautifully with flowers. The celebration started with Shri Sai Baba arti and the atmosphere was charged with positive vibrations. Close to forty people were present for the prasad and in fact the quantity of food I had prepared turned out to be more than sufficient, so much so that people could take the prasad home for the next day as well. By Lord Shripada’s grace all the arrangements for the event went smoothly.I was overwhelmed with joy and tears, as I looked at the beautiful idol of Lord Shripada. I had no words to express the sense of fulfilment and satisfaction that I experienced. Finally Lord Shripada had fulfilled my wish of celebrating Datta Jayanti on a wide scale and everything turned out better than I expected! I was wondering, what is so powerful and different about this divine book - “Shripad Shrivallabh Charitamrut”? In today’s fast paced world, where money and materialistic pursuits are given undue importance, what unique power does this holy book have that we want to read it recurrently? The first striking feature of the book is that it actually contains series of stories and experiences from Shripada’s life as well as that of his devotees. The narration of these stories is lucid and simple and keeps one engrossed. Once you start reading the book, you immediately experience an inner peace of mind and the hope that things are going to happen for the best. It almost works as a subconscious psychological tool, wherein it starts shaping one’s thoughts, beliefs and attitudes in a positive way.The only pre requisite to experience this is to have strong faith and to surrender completely to Lord Shripada. We all face our set of challenges in our lives. Due to diverse factors like competition, lack of stability,peer pressure and the wide impact of social media, we are constantly in a tussle to prove ourselves.

We need a strong spiritual foundation to keep us grounded, calm and give us the strength to fight the odds. “Shripad Shrivallabh Charitamrut” is one such all-encompassing capsule which helps to deal favourably in such situations of life. It acts as a powerful source of guidance and helps us to grow as a person.I am happy that by Lord Shripada’s grace, I was acquainted with “Shripad Shrivallabh Charitamrut” at a very early age in my life. Though I never realized its importance earlier, I can never thank my mother enough for presenting me this sacred book. Truly, words are inadequate to describe these wonderful experiences!
