Place for sending Ishtabhriti

Postby subrata » Sun Jun 20, 2010 9:35 am


This e-mail is a response to the query on the place for sending Ishtabhriti in absence of Shri Shri Thakur.

Shri Shri Thakur has given us clear guidance on whom to send Ishtabhriti in His absence.

“In the absence of Ishta (Ideal), send Ishtabhriti to the one among His descendants who is worthy, closely adhered to Him and observant of His ideologies; or in the absence of such a person in His lineage send Ishtabhriti, for pleasing the Ishta, to one among His disciples who is deserving and closely adhered to Him.”

[Ref: Dhriti Bidhayana Vol 2 Vanni No. 328]

So in His absence we need to find the most suitable man who being adhered to Him is following His principles and ideologies very closely and then send our Ishtabhriti to him. Shri Shri Thakur has left the choice entirely to us. There is no forced mandate here.

The important points to note here are that Ishtabhriti is always sent to a living person in absence of our Guru-purushottama and not to any particular place. It is an oblation of Love and not a donation.

Whenever Shri Shri Thakur re-appears and we come to know about it, we have to accept Him as our Ishta again and send Ishtabhriti directly to Him.
