Felicitation of Dr C. B. Satpathy Ji in Mumbai

On 31st October, 2015, Dr. C. B. Satpathyji was felicitated by the Honourable Governor of Maharashtra Shri Chennamaneni Vidyasagar Rao for his immense service to humanity at a grand function organized at the “Darbar Hall” of Raj Bhawan at Mumbai.  On this occasion, the Marathi translation of the Volume-I of the spiritual treatise ‘Shri Guru Bhagwat’ was released by Shri Vinod Tawade, Honourable Minister of Higher and Technical Education, Government of Maharashtra and its first copy was presented to Honourable Governor of Maharashtra.

In his address, the Honourable Governor of Maharashtra pointed out the importance of Shri Guru Bhagwat in modern times when the society is passing through a phase of fear, hatred and intolerance.  Honourable Governor even requested Shri Vinod Tawde, to consider introducing ‘Shri Guru Bhagwat’ in the curriculum of education at the appropriate level to inculcate moral wisdom among students and Shri Vinod Tawadeji conceded to the request.

While addressing the audience, Shri Vinod Tawadeji also emphasized the importance of Guru Bhagwat in realizing the self and also bringing people closer to each other in the society.

In his speech, Dr. Satpathy appreciated the rich cultural heritage of Maharashtra and the essence of the lives of different saints.  He emphasized on the importance of evaluating ones own conduct rather than analyzing others. Besides stating the importance of temples, he also threw light on the importance of charitable and humanitarian activities in ones life.  He mentioned that though he was being felicitated in many places in India and abroad, the most overwhelming for him was the recognition by Shirdi Sansthan.

On this occasion a documentary on Dr. Satpathyji was shown in Raj Bhawan which enthralled the audience.

Marathi translation has been done by Mrs. Varsha Tarkhad.  The book release function was organized by the Kaka Sahib Dixit Trust of Shri Shirdi Saibaba and was attended by the dignitaries and devotees from all over India.
