Lets welcome the presence of Lord Lakshmi Narashimhar , one of my mothers favourite God to Dattatreya Lotus

Lord Narasimha is an avatara of Vishnu and worshipped as the “Great Protector” mostly in south india.I have personally experienced the grace of Lord Lakskhmi Narashimhar .

Lighting Ghee lamp to Lakshmi Narashimhar :

In 2003,i used to go to a temple called shiva vishnu temple where theres a statue of Lakshmi Narashimhar in the wall of the temple. I used to light one ghee lamp and offer yellow flower to the lord everyday and pray.

Habit of feeding few outside temple and little ants :

Once a old women told me that its good to do “anna dhaan ” feed 1000 devotees in the temple ..if not feed atleast the ants.From that day its my habit to fill empty bottle with sugar and everyday make 3 little packets of Sugar and drop it in corner of any road, near bushes , trees etc.I also continued to offer food to few poor people sitting outside any temple.

Thus i was lighting lamps to Lakshmi Narashimhar with a yellow flower everyday and the events that happened in my family really assured me the power of God Lakhmi Narashimhar.

Ahobila Narashimha temple :

I got the below photograph of Lord Lakshmi Narashimha courtesy of wikipedia taken inside a cave in a  holy pilgrime spot called Ahobila .Ahobilam is situated in nandyal , kurnal district of andha pradesh state, India.Its also known as “Singavel Kundran” where Narashihar gives darshan in 9 different forms which is why its known as “Nava Narasimha Kshetram”. I have heared about few more lakshmi Narashimhar temples in tamilnadu especially the one near chengulput.

The God who is present when holy mantra is chanted with pure thoughts :

The most important reason i started to write about “Lakshmi Narashimhar” in our Dattatreya Lotus is that my mother and father has taught me a mantra to share with all good souls who are suffering from debts, financial problems, health issues, problems in marital life and all other issues. My Amma believes that who ever recites this mantra 108 times , surely Lakshmi Narashimhar will be present with them immediately. He is a God who will not delay a moment when the devotee calls with pure heart.

Please chant this mantra regularly after bath or any time you feel pure and when you are facing some sufferings. The most important request for any Lakshmi Narashimhar devotee is that try to be Vegetarian for life time. please read the below mantra regularly.

Any moment you need the presence of Lakshmi Narashimhar please chant Narashimha mantra with pure mind for 108 times

please Chant this mantra 108 times

( the mantra has its full powers  if you are a  vegetarian )

Narashimha Mantra

Naarasimho mahaasimho
Divyasimho mahaabala

Ukkrasimho mahaadeva
Upendra shaak niloshana

Rowdra , Sowrir , Mahaaveera
Vikkrama , paraakrama,
Harikolaa…     halachakri
Vijayacha jayoviya

Lakshmi Narashimhar bless you with good health, harmony in family and workplace, ability to clear your debts and come out of all devils ( problems ) and lead a peaceful life.

Sairam friends

The below Stotra and article is contributed by my sai friend, a ardent devotee of Lord Narashimhar . I am posting it here for welfare of all children of God.This mantra is powerful and chanting this has lots of benefits given below the mantra.

Lord Lakshmi Narashimhar blessings !

This mantra containing the 12 Names of Lord Narasimha is a great mantra. It has been written in “Anushtup” prosody by Bhagavan Veda Vyaasa. It is for pleasing Lord Narasimha this ‘japa’ is recited.

The first Name of the Lord is ‘He who has a great effulgence’.

The second Name is ‘He who is a ferocious Lion.’

The third Name is “He who has very sharp teeth, as sharp as a diamond”.

The fourth Name is “He who has renown (is learned) in all the ‘Saastras’”.

The fifth Name is “He who is a Man-Lion”.

The sixth Name is “He who killed the son of sage Kasyapa i.e., Hiranyakasipu”.

The seventh Name is “He who killed ‘raakshasas’”.

The eighth Name is “He who is loved by the gods”.

The ninth Name is “He who gave boons to Prahlada”.

The tenth Name is “He who has innumerable hands.” The eleventh Name is “He who is so furious that He is frightening”.

The twelfth Name is “He who kills enemies in an unimaginably fierce manner.”

Benefits of reciting the above mantra with devotion on Lord Narasimha :

In this manner, the great ‘King among Mantras’ of Lord Narasimha who is such a great Person is known.This will rid one of all sins. This king among hymns will relieve (heal) one from diseases like Tuberculosis, spells of fainting, leprosy and such other dreaded diseases. It will also relieve one from the sorrows of “Samsara” and troubles caused by fever.

A recitation of this Stotra will enable a person to achieve success in matters pertaining to the State and to obtain victory in the most frightful of wars. When one is in the middle of an ocean, in the middle of a forest, when trapped among the caves on a mountain, when one encounters wild animals like the tigers, when troubled by robbers, when fear of death is caused by enemies on a battlefield, a recitation of this Stotra ensures that such fears and troubles are destroyed (eliminated).

How many times to read the Narasimhar Stotra :

Even if this Stotra is read but once, auspicious things will befall a person and the dangers will be destroyed.

Those who wish to obtain relief from bodily illnesses, should read this Stotra a hundred times. If this is read a thousand times, all the wishes and desires would be fulfilled.

Lord Lakshmi Narashimhar bless you and your family with good health , peace and prosperity

Gajanan Maharaj of shegoan – Food is Brahma !

Sairam friends,

Gajanan Maharaj is a saint who lived in the late 18th century like our shirdi Sai baba. I have also learnt from my sai guru Gopi sir that Gajanan maharaj has once come to shirdi …Sai and Gajanan maharaj din’t communicated any words..they simply saw each other and laughed . I have not confirmed this information from any charita of Gajanan maharaj.

One of my students family is devoted to Gajanan maharaj and i also started having some feelings of devotion for this great Saint.

Shri Sant Gajanan Maharaj Shegoan

Shri Sant Gajanan Maharaj Shegoan

About Gajanan Maharaj

Das Ganu maharaj describes Gajanan as a lotus who sprung up in the small village of Shegoan and its fragance spread all over the universe.

Discovering a great soul in the streets of shegoan :

Shree Gajanan Maharaj appeared at shegoan on 23rd february 1878. A rich man called Bankatlal agarwal has seen sitting by road side picking particles of food thrown there.Bankatlal and his friend passed by that way and  thought that if this man is really hungry he would have begged for food and himself being a rich man he would have given some food to him.

Bankatlal said why he was eating the food lying on the rkad and offered to serve good food. Gajanan maharaj looked at them for sometime. They realized this man is not ordinary but a saint.

The reason Gajanan maharaj ate the food on the road side is that he wants to convey to the common man that Food is brahma. He said “Annam Brahmeti”.

The difference between good water, dirty water , good food  , dirty food is only if we see things with attachment. Saints see all foods as brahma.

A lesson from Gajanan Maharaj :  Food is God

Infact i still have to learn a lot about Gajanan Maharaj .At present the change which happened in my life is that when ever i eat , if i keep some food remaining , i try my maximum to eat it clean . By grace of sai and Gajanan maharaj my habit of wasting food has reduced. I am sure Gajanan maharaj has lots more to teach us in the days to come.

Gajanan blessings to create a website to help people who are addicted to bad habits :

In shree sai satcharita saibaba has asked several devotees to offer their bad habits as dakshina ( money offerings ) . Not only smoking and drinking but lust, ego, anger, jealousy , lazyness is also bad nature which all saints accepts as Dakshina.

when i was deeply thinking for many days to create a website to help people to offer their bad habits in the holy feets of their sadguru, i had a dream as if i am smoking and i see 2 children who lost their father due to smoking habit are crying “sairam sairam” .

That morning i woke up and felt this smoking dream is a hint by sai to surely work on the new project to help sai children give up bad habits like smoking , drinking etc .

Since i saw myself smoking in the dream ( though i dont smoke ) , i also took it as a blessing of Gajanan Maharaj and by sai grace greated the new website.

Saint Gajanan Maharaj is a smokes Chilim regularly taking puffs deeply with a hissing soung.Surprising fact is that Maharaj smokes chilim only when it is offered affectionately by his devotees and he was not an addict to chilim.

Somehow Gajanan maharaj has captured my heart for life time though his divine leelas in my life is in starting phase. Gajanan maharaj has blessed life of thousands of his devotees with good health, peace and prosperity.

Temple of Gajanan Maharaj :

Shri Sant Gajanan Maharaj temple is situated near Malkapur district in a small village called Shegoan in Maharastra state,India.

Video of Gajanan Maharaj – Arti

Brotherly affection of Sai baba and Gajanan Maharaj

I  realized Gajanan Maharaj blessings for me when i was trying to make a something good for humanity and prayed shirdi saibaba to give me a hint if i should make a project to help people who has bad habits like smoking/drinking, and generally all of us to surrender our ego,pride,jealousy and lust etc in sadgurus holy feets.

That night i was remembering sai and also was remembering that one of my student always asking me to make a good video for Gajanan maharaj. I was blessed with a  dream as if i am smoking and 2 children crying sairam sairam in dream as their father has passed away due to his bad habit. I realized many children and innocent people are affected by the people who has bad habits like husband drinking spoils a womens like and intern the childrens life. So decided to surely make the website.

i took it as a hint that Sai is blessing me in the form of Gajanan maharaj

i also have read the brotherly affection of shirdi saibaba and Gajana maharaj…..once when Gajanan maharaj has come to shirdi, sai and him both simply saw each other and laughed loudly…may be they were communicating something divine…

when Gajanan maharaj had his samadhi, though shirdi was miles away from shegoan ,Sai Baba has exclimed with deep pain

“My Gajanan has gone”…

Thus we realized all saints love and respect each other and were living for welfare of humanity.

friends..the musician and singer of this video is thanked whole heartedly. My student gave this to me and we edited it this morning by blessings of sai saraswathi

All good Saints are caring, loving and affectionate

Gajanan Maharaj and shirdi Sai Baba bless you with good health, Long life, Peace and prosperity. The most important thing we gain from saints are the wisdom we gain by worshipping them.

Gajanan Maharaj always used to say “Gan Gan Ganata Botey” ….
