The Early Years

 

Marriage

Even though a marriage was not intended by Shree originally, He agreed to marry Jaganmata Sharda with the blessing of His uncle and spiritual mentor Gangadhar Maharaj. On 7 May 1939, the wedding was celebrated in the Guru Mandir. Jaganmata, fondly called Vahini, was a devoted companion to Shree. She always radiated great love, compassion and a pleasant modesty.

Two children emerged from the marriage between Shree and Vahini. In 1946, a daughter named Pushpa was born. On 24 September 1952, a son was born, who was named Shreekant. Both children were begotten in a spiritual way, as Shree assured His son. Shreekant later devoted Himself intensively to the work of his Father.

Instruction by Lord Parshuram

One day, on 24 February 1938, Shree heard an unknown, powerful voice in Guru Mandir reciting a 32-syllable mantra. This was repeated a total of three times. Shree was alone at that time, and He realized that Divine Power was initiating Him with the Krishna Shakti mantra. From then on, Shree repeated the mantra continuously.

Four years later, on 12 March 1942, an imposing sage-like figure, a tall, powerful frame, came into the Guru Mandir. He permitted Shree to recognize Him as Lord Parshuram, revealing to Him that He was the invisible Master who had given Him the mantra four years ago.

On this day, He initiated Shree with the Tripuri mantra and in a ceremony transferred special divine powers to Him (Siddhis).

Lord Parshuram is considered an eternal avatar who had already prepared Lord Rama and Lord Krishna for their great tasks. Budhha is known to have visited the "Bhargava Ashram." Bhargava is another name for Parshuram.

Lord Parshuram made a total of six pilgrimages with Shree. Most of them led to mystical places in the Himalayas, but also to South India. Other people did not know about it, because the trips lasted only a few hours. Shree later reported from the individual stations and how They came to the respective places with Their Siddha forces.

Holy Fire

In 1942, Holy Fire appeared before Shree three times without any external influence. A special plaque in Akkalkot reads:

"This is the most holy place where the Divine Fire
appeared before Paramsadguru.

It is well known that similar incidence occurred in the life
of Holy prophet Moses."

Shree’s vow

Since 1942 Shree often had contact with Lord Parshuram, sometimes in person, sometimes in visions. On 21 September 1944, Lord Parshuram showed Shree in a vision that the Eternal Religion (Satya Dharma) anchored in the Vedas was going to die. Thereupon Shree made the vow:

"I will resuscitate the Vedas."

A few days later, Shree repeated the vow three times before Lord Parshuram and performed a ceremony. Shortly thereafter it was revealed to Him in Seven Verses how His vow was to be fulfilled - the Fivefold Path was given.

Revelations

On Christmas Day, 25 December 1941, it was revealed to Shree that He had already worked as Rama, Krishna and Buddha, and was now incarnated as Son of Man. On the same day He came to know that the time had come for the unfolding of this knowledge.

On 21 December 1944, Shree received the revelation that He would complete the mission begun by Buddha (abolition of animal sacrifices) and revive the pure, nonviolent fire sacrifices.

On 4 January 1945, it was revealed to Shree that in His person Tvashta and Udgata were united. Tvashta is creation; Udgata means here its spreading. Thus Shree was informed that the spreading of the revived knowledge was also part of His task.

The 10 Commandments

In a letter written in 1946, Shree drafted, "The 10 basic principles of Vedas", the Ten Commandments, as a guide on the path of development of man.

Merging with supreme power

In 1950, Lord Parshuram appeared again in the Guru Mandir. Shree recited a special mantra in front of Him and proved His perfection of mantras. Lord Parshuram was very pleased with this. It is reported that Lord Parshuram, in the form of power, then entered into Shree. Shree became one with the highest Light and Supreme Power.
