The monthly Satsang on Hanuman Chalisa was organized on 28th Sept 2014 evening, which was the last Sunday of the month. Poojya Guruji Sri Swami Atmanandaji continued his pravachan on the first line of the first chaupayi – Jaya Hanuman Gyana Guna Sagar.
He told that if Hanumanji is Gyana Guna Sagar, then obviously he worked very hard for this, and every student needs to take inspiration from Hanumanji about this too. He not only aimed high to get the best possible teacher, but also finally got accepted by Surya devata as his disciple. He also told the story found in Parasara Samhita that for higher studies it was necessary for Hanumanji to be a Gruhasti, and how a daughter of Surya – Suvarchala Devi was created out of the varchasa (rays) of Surya devata and he married her. As she was ayonija so the sankalpa of Hanumanji to remain a Brahmachari for life, was maintained and yet the requirements of Varna-Ashram Dharma also taken care of. He explained the profound importance of Varna-Ashram Dharma, and also said that today not knowing the importance of these systems, the people have become just One Varna and One Ashrama followers. Vyshya and Gruhasti. Even Hanumanji followed these principles and then got gyana.

A week-long Gita Gyana Yagna by Poojya Swamini Amitanandaji was organized at Hari om Mandir, Lal Baug, Lucknow, from 17th to 23rd Sept 2014. The subject matter of the discourse series were: Gita Chapter-7 and Upadesha Saram.
The Aug 2014 edition of the monthly Hanuman Chalisa Satsang was organized at the same Sankaracharya Sabhagruh, at the Vedanta Ashram, Indore, on 31st Aug evening. It was raining cats & dogs yet the regular devotees managed to come in time – with their Hanumanji statue. The devotees from Dass Bagichi always bring their Hanumanji statue with them for the Satsang, and also sing lovely bhajans before the pravachan. The presence of such devoted group charges the whole atmosphere beautifully, and creates the right ambiance for the pravachan.
After the bhajans and the congregational chanting of Hanuman Chalisa, Poojya Guruji Sri Swami Atmanandaji continued his discourse on the first chaupayi of the Chalisa – Jaya Hanuman Gyana Guna Sagar. He said that Goswami Tulsidas is revealing that we should look upon the multifaceted personality of Hanumanji basically from the point of view of his profound & immeasurable Gyana & Guna’s – everything else follows these two. To get an idea of the Gyana of Hanumanji he told that one should bring to mind the discussion of Bhagwan Sri Ram in the Aranya kand of Ramayana, which is famous as the Ram-Gita, in which Bhagwan Sri Ram tells Lakshman as to what is Gyana etc., and to get an idea of the Guna’s of Hanumanji one should refer to the Vibhishan Gita of Ramayan wherein Ramji tells Vibhishan as to which are the qualities because of which success & victory is assured in one’s life.
