One gets credit of feeding several Brahmins, if one Brahmin is fed under this tree. If one Ashwattha tree is grown, 42 generations are liberated; but if one Ashwattha is cut, it is a great sin performed. Home performed under the tree gives credit of a great sacrifice. Do Homa of one tenth of the number of rounds and feed Brahmins and give golden Ashwattha in charity. She started worshipping Ashwattha as advised by Shri Guru. On the third day, she had a dream. A Brahmin told her to go to Shri Guru at Ganagapur, have seven rounds of Shri Guru and take the prasad that is given to her and that her desire will be fulfilled.
She awoke. On the fourth day she went to Shri Guru and had 7 rounds. Your desire will be fulfilled. She then completed her vrat of the worship of Ashwattha. During meals she ate the fruits given by Shri Guru. In the evening she started menses. Saraswati Gangadhar refers to himself as Namadharaka in the Book. The book is written in the form of a conversation between Siddha Muni who too was a disciple of Shri Narasimha Saraswati and Namdharak who is listening to Sri Siddha.
Namadharaka spent most of his Life at Kadaganchi , a village nearby Ganagapur. So there are few regulations which have to be followed during its Reading. Saptah Parayan must be read for 7 days dividing the Total Chapters Adyays into Adhyays on 1st day, on 2nd, on 3rd, on 4th, on 5th, on 6th and on the Last Day. The Place of reading must be Cleaned and a Deepa must always be lit while Parayana.
Eating of Onion, Garlic, Egg etc must not be done and if possible one must have food only once and Fast in the Morning or Night.
Even today devotees experience his Blessings by reading Sri Guru Charitra repeatedly. It is composed of Sanskrit slokas and 34 Marathi Ovis - 13 at the beginning and 21 in the end. In some of the latter scripts it seems that this chapter of Shri Guru Geeta is deleted, probably it being in Sanskrit and the 41st chapter is split up into two chapters, keeping the number of chapters the same i.
The gist of Shri Guru Geeta is included in this volume. Shri Dattatreya is an Avinash Avatar, i. His mission is to help all His devotees cross this Ocean of Worldly existence. The research scholars of Medical Sciences have a good opportunity of thinking over and analysing the means that have been used by Shri Guru for cure of acute gastric pain, leprosy, toxic irritations, revival to life, sterility of females etc.
Of course it is an admitted fact that the yogic and Divine power of Shri Guru is mainly responsible for these miracles to a great extent.
It is an experienced fact that the reading of such literature gives mental peace to those who are worried due to different miseries of this worldly life and also encourages and guides them to go ahead on the path of self-emancipation by making their lives sublime and full of highest bliss. A devotee of Shri Guru by name Namdharak, greatly worried due to domestic miseries, left home and started on foot with the intense desire of seeing Shri Guru.
While on his way, he was praying to Shri Guru all the time.
But then why should I be required to suffer so much, though I have been reciting your name all the time, and having full faith in you? Oh, Shri Narasimha Saraswati, you are the Guide to and treasure of the kindness to the devotees.
You made this Earth devoid of the Kshatriya race and then gave it in charity to the Brahmins. You offered ever-lasting place to Dhruva. But what did you receive in return from every one of these?
If you have received nothing, then what can an innocent human-being like myself offer you, who Himself the Lord of Lakshmi Goddess of Wealth is? It does not become you, a great Giver of boons, to first receive and then to give. I possess only this treasure of services of my family unto you. Kindly give me some loan from this treasure, as I am in very peculiar circumstances. I am seeking your shelter 7 Shri Guru Charitra considering and You, on your part, overlook my misdeeds and do not be angry with me.
You are my Mother and Father too. So will you not protect me, an innocent child? Are you not even inclined to listen to my miserable tale? In his dream, he saw a Personality with hair-locks on head, ash markings on all the body and face full of kindness. He soon recognized him to be Shri Guru, who applied ashes to his forehead and placed his blessing hand on his head. He awoke and began to proceed further on his path. While going he was all the time thinking over the dream, he had seen in the previous night.
He now observed that similar personality, alike that seen by him in the dream was coming from the front. Kindly favor me, an orphan child. Kindly tell me your name and place of residence. I live on earth and in heaven also. I have been visiting holy places and now I have come here.
He is in the incarnation of Thrimurties and always found in meditation. He has come to this earth for the salvation of his devotees. Will you kindly satisfy me in this respect? Then it seems that you are not worshiping Shri Guru wholeheartedly. How is it that if Shri Guru is enraged none else can protect?
Where can I find this reference? From the Vedas 18 Puranas were construed. Brahma Vaivarta is one of these and it is stated in it that in the Dwapara Yug, Vyasa, the Vishnu incarnate, spread the light of knowledge on Earth, through such volumes 9 Shri Guru Charitra known as Brahma Sutras.
Rishis and Munis listened to the tales from Vyasa, which I am narrating to you. He desired and lotus came out of his umbilicus. On it was seated Brahma, who looked to the four directions and he got four heads. He thought that he was all Supreme. Brahma bowed to him and praised him. Being pleased Shri Vishnu asked Brahma to create this Universe. Shri Vishnu gave him four Vedas and also told him to create this world according to the process given in the Vedas.
Brahma then created this World, which has several animate and inanimate things such as:- 1 Swedaj: those born of perspiration as bugs etc. Similarly Brahma created three Lokas Worlds. This process of creation has been stated in the Brahma Vaivarta Purana in the following manner: - Brahma called every Yug one after the other and asked him to go on Earth. First came Krita Yug, who did not speak a lie was learned and devoid of family attachments, had sacred thread and necklace of Rudraksha-beads around the neck.
How can I go and stay there? Then came Treta Yug. Fat in body possessed articles of sacrifice in his hands. In this Yug people performed sacrifices and abode by the rules of religions and rituals and most of them were Brahmins. He had arrows and other weapons in his hands.
He was both kind and wicked. Virtue and sin were both visible in him. Lastly Kali Yug was called for ghost like appearance, thoughtless heart, old age, struggling and despising mentality were his characteristics. He came before Brahma and began dancing and uttering childish words. At one moment he laughed, at another he welted and then abused anybody.
I am not afraid of anybody. I am a friend to those who pretend to be a saint and I am an enemy of all the virtuous. In the former Yugas, as the life span was too long people followed the path of penance and devotion in order to attain supreme knowledge. In Kali Yug, a man can attain salvation, the observing penance and devotion for less time. You should help such virtuous persons.
I am afraid of such persons. How should I then go to the Earth? They will destroy the religious mindedness and even induce virtuous persons to commit sins. But on the contrary, I love those who love their wives and children, dishonor their parents who despise Vedas and Sastras, who see separateness in Vishnu and Siva and despise them. People will follow you and act as per your wishes as soon as you go there.
If a few persons are virtuous, you do not trouble them. Please tell me how I should help the virtuous? Please direct me as to how I should behave on the Earth. The virtuous only can will you, all others will soon be your slaves. How he is to be known?

Shiva, Vishnu, Brahma, parents are all Gurus of this Earth. Knowledge imbibed with devotion and rational thinking Viveka is seen in the heart of the Guru. Study of Dharma and Shastras without Guru is futile. He directs in action, thought, devotion and disintegration. One cannot surpass worldly miseries without the help and guidance of Guru. He throws a flashlight on the dark illusionary path. Service to the Guru makes one pure in body, speech and thinking. I shall just tell a tale as an example.
On the bank of Godavari, there was the Ashram of Angiras Rishi. Many disciples were being trained in this Ashram. One disciple named Sandeepak served his Guru, Veda Dharma, with great devotion.
The effect of many of them has been wiped off by my penance, but still some of them are persisting. I will not get salvation unless I suffer the evil effects of these sins with my body. I, therefore, wish to go to Kashi, stay there and get rid of these sins. You have to attend on me and serve me during this period. So I should go to a holy place and suffer the bad effects myself.
I shall spare no pains in serving you. If you are resolute, then only you should accept this job.
Shri Guru Charitra
Veda Dharma was much pleased with his words. The sins will not be wiped off unless they are borne by one's own body. It is very taxing to serve a diseased person. So you will have to take troubles even more than myself. Please take me to Kashi and do serve me there. They lived there at Kambaleshwar to the North of Mankarnika. The Muni took a bath in Mankarnika and worshiped Vishweshwar and began to suffer the pangs of diseases. As the time passed on, leprosy developed all over his body and he became blind losing his eyesight.
His body was petrified and pus, blood and germs flowed out of it. He began to have fits also. Still Sandeepak took all pains to nurse his Guru with great devotion. He used to bring alms daily for his Guru, fed him and served him, thinking him to be Kashi Vishweshwar.
Veda Dharma being in a diseased condition became peevish by nature and often was enraged and spoke harsh words to his disciple, Sandeepak. Some day he would not take food, some day he would abuse him cruelly for bringing insufficient for undelicious alms. Some day he would throw away the food in anger and despair.
Sometimes he would even beat him severely. Another time he would complain that he did not clean his body, wounds, clothes smeared with stool and urine and consequently he was much troubled by 13 Shri Guru Charitra flies. When Sandeepak was attending on him, he would say why did he not go out for alms. In this way Sandeepak was harassed every now and then. Yet Sandeepak tried his best to bring good delicious food and vegetables as directed by his Guru. Though he was living in Kashi, he never went to the Vishweshwar temple to worship and see the most holy shrine of Vishweshwar.
Similarly he did not think of any other thing but he solely devoted himself to the nursing and giving best service to his Guru, whom he respected as God Shiva, Vishnu and Brahma. Though the Guru got enraged off and on, he did not retort harshly. Seeing his such devoted service to his Guru, Kashi Vishweshwar was so pleased that he appeared before him and told him to ask for some favor or blessing.
If you permit me, I shall pray him to remove your physical pangs and give you sound health. If I do not suffer these pangs, I will have to suffer in the next birth and this would abstract my path of salvation.
Hearing this, Shri Vishnu and Shri Kashi Vishweshwar desired to see this disciple and his Guru and so they both came to Kashi and approached Sandeepak.
You may ask for what ever you desire. I shall fulfill your wishes. But when neither did I worship you, nor recite your name, why should you be pleased with me and ask me to have a boon from you? I love such disciples very much. I am under his 14 Shri Guru Charitra influence and I willingly offer him my blessings.
I like wife's devotion to her husband, bowing to Brahmins. Ascetics and Sanyasis, and such persons come to my place in the end. As Guru is my God, Trimurties Brahma, Vishnu and Mahesh are within my reach, whatever blessings you give me; I shall be getting the same easily from my Guru. I am, therefore, serving my Guru devotedly. You are my loving child. Shri Shiva and myself are pleased with your devotion. Ask for a boon. We offer you what you desire. You have known Guru and also experienced Par-Brahma in yourself.
The word Guru contains only two alphabets; still it is the ocean of nectar. One, who dips into it even for a moment, will cross this worldly ocean. One who always remembers Guru is respected in all Lokas.
Hearing this Veda Dharma too was extremely pleased. You should stay in Kashi. What ever you say will be true. The same moment, the body of Veda Dharma muni became healthy and bright.
He had suffered from leprosy and other pangs only for testing his disciple. Control your sense, Karma, Dnyan and also heart and other by you will win even the Great God i.
I am much pleased at heart. Will you kindly inform me where you stay? What is your food? I wish to be in your service. Studying the life of Shri Guru is like draining nectar. We shall not be affected by any disease incurred due to displeasure of the planets or other reasons. I wish to know the life of Shri Guru. Will you please remove the darkness of my ignorance by the light of this life of Shri Guru, which is as bright as the Sun?
I am obsessed by sex, anger and temptation.
You will surely be relieved of your miseries, engrossed in illusion and temptation, those who doubt the great 17 Shri Guru Charitra power of Shri Guru, they have always to suffer from poverty and hardship.
So give up suspicion. Shri Guru is an Ocean of Kindness. He will give you everything. Just as clouds give rain everywhere, similarly Shri Guru gives showers of kindness.
As water is stored in the deep portions of earth and on the rocky place, so an individual attains Shri Guru's favor.
Therefore worship Shri Guru wholeheartedly. Kindly tell me why Shri Guru took birth in Bharat? My good disciple, you have given inspiration to me. Shri Guru's life is like Kamadhenu. But these do not exist separately. He observed Ekadashi fast 11th day of every fortnight dark and bright.The Sun, the Moon, the Varuna and the Wind also obey me. Seeing that Ravana was not coming, Ganesh recollected Shri Vishnu's words and placed the Linga on the ground in the presence of the gods in the sky.
Madayanti was much grieved to hear it. When Ravana was offering arghyas water ablutions to fire god , Ganesh called Ravana and said that he is fatigued and he should take his Linga from him soon. Shri Ganesh founded here the original Linga-image of Shiva. She worshiped a new Shiva Linga every day. But your sons will live for years.
