Aniruddha Bapu’s Swastikshem Tapascharya

One aspect of Sadguru Aniruddha, ever-present and eternal, is his unconditional love. It is out of this unconditional love that Bapu performed the ‘Swastikshem Tapascharya’ (penance, austerity).

For a strong foundation of spirituality, one must keep doing upasana on a regular basis. However today, due to stress and barrage of worries, it is not always that one is regular at upasana. Fully aware of this gap in the lives of his Shraddhavan friends, to bridge it, Sadguru Aniruddha commenced the ‘Swastikshem Tapascharya’ on 28th September 2011, the first day of the Ashwin Navratri.

For day and night, constantly and at all times, Sadguru Bapu was in penance, austerity. During the period of the penance, Bapu had, in fact, forgotten his own self and was completely immersed in connection with the Mother Chandika.

There were three facets to Bapu’s Tapascharya – 1) The upasana of the BrahmaTripuraSundari form of the Aadimata Chandika2) The Bala-Atibala upasana and 3) The upasana of the SavitriVidya and the ShreeVidya. A special arrangement for the Yajna kund– ‘Visham-Ashtastram’, was created at the ‘Shree Aniruddha Gurukshetram’ for Bapu’s Tapascharya where Bapu made the specific offerings in the sacred fire.
