Book Description
About the Author

H.H. Dr. Jayant Athavale started writing Holy texts with the blessings of His Guru H.H. Bhaktaraj Maharaj. Imparting knowledge on Spirituality and answering the 'how and why' of Spirituality in a scientific terminology are the main features of these Holy texts. Some Holy texts contain Divine Knowledge obtained by Sanatan's seekers, which is not available else- where on earth!

Under the guidance of H.H. Dr. Athavale, in-depth spiritual research is being conducted on 'God-realization through Art', 'Spiritual remedies for distress due to negative energies', and necessary guidance is being provided.

During Dwaparyuq, the Guru Principle was active through the medium of Srikrushna. Today in Kaliyug, it is active through H.H. Dr. Athavale. The Paratpar Guru alone shoulders the responsibility of the welfare of the entire Universe and constantly strives to take every jiva (Embodied soul) to the next step in Spirituality. Though Raja-Tama are predominant today, H.H. Dr. Athavale is teaching seekers appropriate methods of spiritual practice and how to follow Dharma as per the science, to speed up their progress towards God-realisation. This will enhance the Sattva component in the seekers, bring about a change in the entire structure of the society, leading to peace and tranquility in the Universe.


The above analysis exemplifies in no uncertain terms the tremendous importance that Achardharma carries. When the importance of a topic is realised from every possible perspective, it helps in creating a stronger impression on the mind that motivates it to act accordingly. With this very objective in mind, emphasis is laid in this Holy text on the importance of the various aspects of Achardharma. Various benefits from the perspective of vyeshti (Meaning, the individual), and the samashti, (Meaning, the society) are also mentioned. This Holy text also carries an in- depth discussion on the possible detrimental effects of not practising A chardharma , how to abide by ecners, factors that facilitate the practice of Achardharma etc.
