The English translation of the epic treatise “Shree Guru Bhagwat” has been done by Revered Gurujee Himself to enable larger section of devotees to acquaint them with “Guru” principle and path.
Speaking on this grand occasion , Revered Gurujee Shri Chandra Bhanu Satpathyji said that “Shree Guru Bhagwat” is about the Guru principle that is unbound , covering the limitless expanse of the whole(microcosm & macrocosm) transcending time , space continuum ; this treatise , a virtual encyclopedia, embraces the essence of all the paths . Sadgurus of many paths find mention in the encyclopedia “Shree Guru Bhagwat ” which enlightens the seeker about the subtle principles on which the Masters (Sadguru) Grace acts, divine personality of the Sadguru, the personality & devotion expected from a seeker, different characteristics of seekers/ Master, Knowledge etc . Shree Gurujee exhorted the gathering to awaken the consciousness the keys to which lies in Sadguru`s Grace. All the Perfect Masters like Shri Shirdi Sainath, Sadguru Ramakrishna Paramhansa et al laid utmost emphasis on following the “Guru” path which is reflected in the Sadguru`s being addressed as “Mowli”(mother) (Supreme compassionate Masters ), transcending duality in its most innate state. This state of Self denoting equilibrium of forces can be seen in the statue of Shri Shirdi Sai which is also known as ardhnarieshwar ,as symbolized by Lord Shiva. Shree Gurujee said that spiritualism enshrines truth (Self) and essence of spiritualism lies in imbibing and living this truth in daily conduct .
Revered Gurujee said that the limitless bountiful grace of the Sadguru can only be imagined from the fact that simple , agriculturalist , unknown villagers of Shirdi who lived and served the Compassionate Shirdi Sai like Shama, Kolte Patil etc are known all over the world today. No wonder then, the Sadguru`s are addressed as “mowli” (mother).Shree Gurujee said that the (mis)deeds of the chosen children(ankit santan) of the Master (Sadguru)are His(ie. Sadguru`s) and not those of the child. What more assurance can one ask for? Shree Gurujee said that when He started writing these thoughts that spontaneously manifested from His ( awakened ) Self due to the grace of Shri Shirdi Sai , He had never thought that the work(“Shree Guru Bhagwat ”)would be published . Certain close friends and well wishers who had heard the poem insisted on its(Shree Guru Bhagwat`s ) publication ; sustained efforts to index and type the loose sheets of original writings in Odia was done by His nephew Itala (Debbrata Satpathy) which culminated in publication of Odia treatise “Shree Guru Bhagwat” , which is available in almost all the temples in Odhisha today and is widely read by renowned scholars& common people alike , and sung/read in temples , Mutths all over Odhisha .Revered Shree Gurujee thanked the organizers of the event and blessed the devotees.
On this spiritually ecstatic occasion , Ms Madhusmita Das — a renowned Odissi dancer from Baripada & Sh Bhagirath Mohant , performed two beautifully choreographed dance sequence depicting the theme of primordial Supreme Guru seated in Self (Sat -Chida-Anand) controlling the energy forces of creation, maintenance & dissolution (as set out in stanzas 11, 14 & 15 of “Shree Guru Bhagwat”)encompassing the whole in Self and another theme depicting surrender of disciple at the feet of Sadguru (breaking of illusion)and creation of chosen child(ankit santan`s) of Master (Sadguru)and the ankit santan`scharacteristic (as set out in stanza stanza 463,465,464 of “Shree Guru Bhagwat”).
