Day-to-day Routine

Main Sermons :

All saints in modern times have advocated the praising of god (Nam Smaran) as a simple way to attain spirituality. Not only does the person doing “Nam Smaran” become pure but the atmosphere is also charged up with calmness and purity. People visiting Shri Dattashram can experience this. Each person coming to Dattashram is asked to do Naam Smaran.

The regular day at Dattashram starts at 5 am with “Kakad Aarti”. First the men offer morning prayers i.e. “kakada aarati” and then women offer it around 6 am. There is a “Prabhat Feri” during festival times. People have a round around the whole Dattashram. Later, people sit in the different temples and perform “Jap” as much as they can. Tai Maharaj expects that every visitor should spend maximum time in “jap”. Evening prayers are offered at 6.45 p.m.

The Thursday evening aarti continues up to 11 pm. The musical chanting of “Digambara Digambara Shripad Vallabha Digambara” starts at 10 pm on Saturday and continues till next day morning 5 am, the Kakad Aarti time. In some annual festivals, continuous week-long “Naam-Saptah” is carried out. “Naam Jap” is always the main aim of Dattashram.

A public chanting (“Jap”) of “Digambara Digambara Shripad Vallabh Digambara” or “Shri Ram Jai Ram Jai Jai Ram” is performed at a specific time of the day. This “mantra” is repeated on the occasion of special festivals also.

On Shri Ram Navami, continuous chanting of “Shri Ram Jai Ram Jai Jai Ram” is performed. P. P. Tai Maharaj resolved to chant this mantra 13 crores time in 2010 and asked all devotees to partake in this divine procedure. Ever since devotees also take to chanting this mantra whenever possible.
