MAHALAXMI MUKTI SAMVAD,MMS

i.e. Mahalaxmi’s Dialogues of Salvation

 BACKGROUND

The MMS anthology is based on deep spiritual experiences  received as divine guidance from Satguru Datta Chile Maharaj,of Paijarvadi,Kolhapur.

Chile Maharaj was a divine soul who elevated thousands of devotees from material to spiritual level.

The author of this anthology Dr. Pradeep Wagh  was one such humble recipient. MMS then is the original work of author and lyricist Dr. Pradeep Babanrao Wagh based on these extraordinary revelations. Originally written in Marathi, MMS is also translated into Sanskrit, Hindi & English.

The anthology is set in dramatised form. Bhakt (devotee) Triguna has performed the ghatsthapana (installation of Mahalaxmi Devi’s symbolic pot of water with a coconut on it) with a pure heart on ashwin shudh partipada( first day of the month of ashwin) .She has set up also a decoration comprising a statue of Mahalaxmi along with statues of her Yoginis (ascetic friends).  Triguna invites her sakhis ( friends)  for puja and bhajans. The sakhis ask the devout   Triguna a number of questions about bhakti ; She answers them  well. But Triguna herself has got many questions in her mind related to spirituality.

 

What is the easiest way of God realisation ?

What is  Jeevanpravah, the milestones of life ?

What is difference between Vijnyan, Science and Aatmajnyaan,  Spirituality ?

Where is the Sukhdhaam, Abode of Bliss ?

What is Naadbrahma, the Sound Divine ?        

What is  Aatmapravas, sojourn of soul ?

 How does one realise ‘Aham Brahmasmi’ ,I am Brahma, in which the individual self dissolves inseparably into Brahma, the infinite form of God.

****************************************

Triguna  express to her friends about her search for these truths and wonders who will answer these questions. 

Thereafter the sakhis leave and Triguna sleeps at the feet of the goddess.

Goddess Mahalaxmi and the Yoginis  emerges from their respective statues and mysteriously the yoginis seems to have  the same questions of spirituality that Triguna seems to have.  Mahalaxmi answers all these questions in beautiful songs and dance sequences. 

These then are the songs divine  that form the part of the Mahalaxmi Mukti Samvad  anthology .

Selective songs from the anthology have been composed into the music album . The same have been linked through the narrative conversations of  of Mahalaxmi and the Yoginis into the Nritya Natika.
