Nasik : Holy Godavari River of Sage Gautam was sanctified by visit of ‘Taponidhi’ Sadhu-Mahants during ‘Simhastha –Parva’. The River Godavari’s bubbling flow since early morning was a witness to the sacred presence of Sadhus-Saints. On the day of ‘Shravan Amavasya’ i.e. on 13th September, the second ‘Raj Yogi Snan’ was completed with great enthusiasm. ‘Sadhu-Mahants’ from all 3 ‘aakhaadaas’ viz. ‘Akhil Bharatiya Shri. Panch Nirmohi Ani Aakhaadaa’, ‘Akhil Bharatiya Shri. Panch Digambar Ani Aakhaadaa’ and ‘Akhil Bharatiya Shri. Panch Nirvani Ani Aakhaadaa’ had ‘Rajyogi Snan’ at holy Rama-kunda; whereas at Kushawart in Trimbakeshwar, Shankaracharya, 10 Shaiva ‘aakhaadaas’ and Sadhu-Saints had holy bath along with their traditional weapons with great enthusiasm. There were very strict security arrangements made at the time of the first Rajyogi-snan; but for the second Rajyogi-snan, police had been little lenient and were not obstructing devotees till far off distance, so, crowd was comparatively more.

Sanatan lady-seekers did ‘aukshan’ of ‘Saints- Mahants’ !

‘Akhil Bharatiya Aakhaadaa Parishada’s President Shri. Mahant Gyandas Maharaj, Jagatguru Shri. Nimbakacharya Peetha’s Nimbakateertha and ‘Pujya’ Balyogeshwar Shri. Ram Balakdasji Mahatyagi Maharaj were welcomed by Sanatan’s lady-seekers in traditional manner by doing ‘aukshan’ as they reached near Ganeshwadi Library.

…and Sadhus-Saints shower flowers on Sanatan seekers !

The traditional welcome given by Sanatan seekers and activists of HJS was appreciated by Sadhus-Saints, Mahants and devotees and they bestowed blessings on them. Few Sadhus- Saints were so happy with the welcome given by seekers and activists that they showered garlands and flowers worn by them over seekers and activists.

Police behave rudely with Sadhus-Mahants, devotees and media-persons!

Police found it difficult to manage the crowd of devotees. Many times, there was a verbal brawl between Sadhus, devotees going for ‘Raj Yogi Snan’ at Trimbakeshwar and police at Kushawart, Lakshminarayan Chowk and Ambedkar Chowk. Police jostled with even few Sadhus and devotees. The number of devotees was more for the second ‘Rajyogi-snan’ than the first one and few devotees went for bath at the time of bath assigned for Sadhus creating lot of confusion. Police had to rush to drive away those devotees and they were rude in doing so; thus enraging devotees. Police were literally shoving off devotees by catching their hands. Tight security arrangements were done in the whole city on the occasion of second ‘Rajyogi-snan/ Parvani’ in the background of terrorist activities in this country. Media-persons were treated very curtly by the police. In fact, media-persons were given passes for compiling news of procession and ‘Raj Yogi Snan’ and for shooting the events. Still, police were driving away everyone.

  1. The atmosphere looked holy due to processions taken out on the occasion of ‘Raj Yogi Snan’, and welcoming banners put up by Sanatan Sanstha and HJS in Rama-kunda area.
  2. Police appreciated disciplined participation of Sanatan and HJS and extended cooperation during procession.
  3. The atmosphere was charged with the slogans raised by Sanatan seekers and HJS activists while welcoming Rajyogi Snan’ processions such as ‘Jai Shriram’, ‘Arya Sanatan Vedic Hindu Dharmaki Jai’, ‘Bharatmata ki Jai’, ‘Har Har Mahadev’, ‘Ramakrushna Hari’, ‘Jai jai Ramakrushna Hari’.
  4. ‘Kshatra-Tej’ increased in the atmosphere by the slogans raised by Saints and seekers and few Saints and devotees also joined in raising slogans. One foreigner also spontaneously raised slogans on loudspeaker as ‘Jai Shriram’.
  5. Many foreigners took part in processions and holy bath.
  6. Processions of Sadhus were taken out exhibiting and demonstrating their weapons.
  7. Warakaris from Maharashtra joined the procession taken out by biggest ‘nirmohi aakhaadaa’s ‘Khalsa’.

Sadhus- Mahants from 10 ‘aakhaadaas’ had holy bath at Kushawart !

Panchadashnaam Juna aakhaadaa, H. H. Gagangiri Maharaj Kumbh-Parva, Sri 1008 Mahamandaleshwar Apurvanand Giriji Maharaj, Sri 1008 Mata Sunitanandji Maharaj, Shri. Mahamandaleshwar Mahant Bholaji Bapu, Swami Shivanand Giriji Maharaj, Paramhans Nityanand Swamiji etc. had holy bath at Kushswart.

Sadhus- Saints bow before Sanatan banners with folded hands !

Sanatan seekers were standing from midnight to welcome Sadhus- Saints and for ‘Adhyatma-prasar’ holding banners. Two ‘sadhus’ bowed before Sanatan banners with folded hands; whereas another ‘Sadhu’ blew conch standing near the banner.

Sanatan uses word ‘Raj Yogi Snan’ instead of ‘Shahi-snan’ to be loyal to own language

Shahi is Urdu word and ‘Rajyogi’, a pure Indian word is an alternative to this word; therefore, with the noble intention of adopting Indian language, Sanatan Prabhat uses the word ‘Rajyogi Snan’ in place of ‘Shahi Snan’.
