A Special Announcement

The Divya Jivan Sanskrutik Sangh and the Sivananda Ashram, Ahmedabad wishes you happy and prosperous New Year. We also take liberty to clarify certain misunderstanding that would have been created by the official announcement by the Divine Life Society on the Internet as well as in the October issue of the "Divine Life" magazine.

We, the governing board at the Divya Jivan Sanskrutik Sangh, have been the constant observer and witness to all the activities of H. H. Sri Swami Adhyatmanandaji Maharaj for the past eight years. His conduct during that time has been immaculate. Yes, there were some trouble makers who systematically orchestrated plan to slander him by plotting, fabricating and ganging up against him and used obscene means to malign him. They also resorted to the tabloid journalism to inflame the matter but the people of Gujarat, India and abroad are very much watchful and aware to such unfair practices and they immediately discarded the news for what it was worth. Such deliberate and unjustifiable attempts have been made against other Mahatmas of the past as well as present from time to time but we, the seekers of the truth, have rejected them with our keen discriminating and judging faculties. We understand that Revered H. H. Sri Swami Chidanandaji Maharaj thought that a Sanyasi of the Divine Life Society should be above “Lokapavada” and suspicion and taking that into consideration he suggested “Ekant Tapaschyarya Sadhana” for Sri Swami Adhyatmanandaji and needless to say he obeyed his Gurudev’s instructions.

We have identified those troublemakers and even brought them to light but to our dismay these troublemakers could succeed to misguide the office bearers of the Divine Life Society to make the announcement that we believe to be unfair, misguiding and irreparably harming to the spiritual seekers in this country as well as abroad. Swami Adhyatmanandaji has been the driving force in the propagation of the message of Holy Master Sri Swami Sivanandaji Maharaj for the past twenty-seven years and he has followers in India as well as abroad. He has done immense good to the spiritual seekers all over the world. Under his guidance and leadership the Sivananda Ashram at Ahmedabad has been thriving with spiritual activities and programs that any organization can be proud of. We are somewhat heartened by the firm assurance given by H. H. Sri Swami Chidanandaji Maharaj that our beloved Sri Swami Adhyatmanandaji Maharaj will be reposted to Sivananda Ashram, Ahmedabad once again in due course. Whosoever has come in contact with Sri Swami Adhyatmanandaji has come to know him to have pristine character, absolute purity, strict adherence to truthfulness and unparalleled guru-bhakti. We also believe that the time and again he has fallen victim to backbiting and consequent unjustified reprimand from the authority that he has vouched never to question.   

We feel it is only fair to put the matter in the proper perspective and bring the truth to the light especially in the wake of the announcement by the Divine Life Society. We also believe that presenting the truth in its pristine form will do infinitely better than to resort to quick fix to avoid bad publicity. May the Holy Master Sri Swami Sivanandaji Maharaj who is the witness to everything, set the things straight in the interest of the spiritual seekers and seekers of the truth. May the truth prevail! May He the supreme take the charge of this matter to resolve it amicably! May Guru Maharaj Sri Swami Chidanandaji Maharaj ever shower his grace, blessings, love and kindness upon us all!  May the justice and freedom reign in the holy land of ours!
