It said that first Guru in our life is our Mother, who teach us all the basic and the most important lessons of our life which stays within us for lifetime. In short we can say she construct all the pillar on which structure is going to stand. After Mother,comes the Teacher who make our career and help us to face the world around. Indian history speak lots about this famous teacher a Guru who not only created there students that is Shisha but gave great lessons to human being.
Especially in Maharashtra we have Swami Ramdas which is know as Guru of Chatrapati Shivaji Maharaj (King Maharashtra). Lord Ramdas meet King Shivaji Maharaj at Shinganwadi near Chafal. At that time Samartha Ramdas Swami said that Maharashtra existed because of Shivaji Maharaj. Samartha Ramdas Swami, through his teachings and his impact on society, helped him in realizing his dream.
Swami Ramadas is the most famous guru in Maharashtra. Ramdas Swami is the only one who wrote most famous Arati of Shree Ganesh which is most famous today “Sukhakarta Dukhaharta”, Swami Ramdas also established total 11 temples of lord Hanumana in Maharashtra in which idol is itself created by Guru Ramdas. The Surya Namaskara or Sun Salutation was his favorite as it involves every part of the body. It is said that he would do 1,200 Sun Salutations every day, believing that no spirituality could be attained if the physical body was not strong.
Today Swami’s contribution in the field of literature is really very great. ‘Dasbodh‘ , ‘Manache Shlok‘ , ‘ Atmaram’, ‘Manapanchak’ , ‘Anandavanbhuvan‘, ‘Shivakalyanaraja’ are lighting the house of many people in Maharashtra each and every school in Maharashtra should introduce his teaching in there school which can help the student to became like Shivaji Maharaj.
