This great work has taken form from the dialogue between ShreeGuru Dattatreya and His disciple Shree Parshuram. It is an easy and simple account of the Aadimata Chandika’s Tridha form that is the Aadimata Gayatri, the Aadimata Mahishasurmardini and the Aadimata Anasuya. Describing this memoir, Sadguru Shree Aniruddha writes – “This is a sacred work, this is a gunasankirtan or praise of the attributes, it is the Ganges of knowledge, it is also the Bhagirathi of Bhakti (bhakti that flows from the bhakta back to the source, the Almighty) and, of course, the narrative about the Aadimata. But over and above all of this, it is the Shubhankara and the Ashubhanashini manifestation of my Aadimata; it is Her gentle motherly affection, and it is also Her grace and blessing.”
Each of us is on a journey and so is the universe. All creation concludes where it arose – in ‘Him’, the One who is the ultimate Truth, the ultimate source of Love and the ultimate source of Joy and also, the highest purpose that every human seeks. This quest is our journey and ‘He’ the Sadguru-Parmatma is our purpose in life.
Our journey will be fulfilling if it is purposefully and joyful oriented towards this purpose, if it is full with and inspired by Love, ‘His’ love that gives strength, fearlessness. A journey that is accomplished with the constant awareness of ‘His’ unconditional love translates into a happy life of bhakti and valour.
The ‘Prempravas’ is an assurance that every single person’s journey of life can be beautiful because it is basically meant to lead to ‘Him’ (Love) and meant to be done with ‘Him’ (Love). This work tells us how to do it and how simple it is to do it.
The first section, the Purvaranga, talks about how immense, how infinite the Bhagavanta is. The second section, the Shreeranga, tells us how close He is to us despite His imensity. The third section, the Madhufalvatika, the resting abode of the vanar soldiers is rich in ‘fruits’ of satisfying sweetness and are essentially like the honey that Sadguru Shree Aniruddha has left open for us in the form of this work.
In sum, not apart from it, the ‘Prempravas’ (the journey of love) is ‘Satyapravesh’ and both are Joy.
‘Satyapravesh’, the first of the three volumes of the Shreemadpurushartha Grantharaj, in keeping with Sadguru Shree Aniruddha Bapu’s mission referred to above, indicates the path towards the ultimate principle – the highest purpose of human life, revealing in simple and lucid language,
the path of bhakti and nishkam karmayog
the path of bhakti and selfless service (seva)
and above all also a path of strength because strength comes from the awareness of the Parmatma’s unconditional love for us.
Intending to rid society at large of its misplaced notions, fear and blind beliefs, the work opens up the true meaning of about bhakti, worldly life, spirituality and so reveals how simple the path to progress and happiness is.
‘Satyapravesh’ opens for us the gateways to a beautiful domain, above all of a basic truth– the awareness that the Parmatma loves us and is with us at all times. The ‘Satyapravesh’ i.e. the stepping into this domain, this way of life, then happens for the shraddhavaan.
