P.Pu. Swami Paramatmanadaji was invited by Sandipani Vidya Niketan (Sri Rameshbhai Ojha) Porbandar. Sandipani Vidya Niketan had organized “ Srimad Bhagvad Chintan Shibir”
Pu. Swamiji talked on "AVATAR RAHASYA" for one hour. Pu. Swamiji said in all Vedic visioin the Lord – Creator is non-separate from Creation. Pu. Swamiji explained Mantras from Taitariya Upnishad. The Lord is the Creator and that Creator is the very self of all of us, abiding in our heart as “AHAM” (અહમ્) Due to ignorance we identify with our body-mind complex and our self to be limited. It is a point of view. By nature I am the limitless self non separate from limitless Lord, the Creator.
Pu. Swamiji quoted various similar SHLOKAS from Shrimad Bhagvad right from 1st Skandha to last Skandha.
Thus all the forms are the expressions of The Lord. More ever there are few more forms like Matsya , Kurma ....Rama , Krishna etc. whom we call “AVATARAS”.These Forms ( UPADHIES) are in a way different from all other Forms because these Forms do not limit the expressions of the Lord. In spite of appearing limited He is limitless. He manifest through this form wielding his “MAYA”. Therefore though appears to be limited human, animal etc. Lord is limitless His Sarvagnatvam, Sarva Shaktimatvam is unconditioned by Upadhi.
Pu. Swamiji had done research from Bhagvatam and quoted various Shlokas from Skandha I, III,VII, VIII, X, XI & XII.

- Param Pujya Swami Paramatmananda Saraswatiji conducted Gita Gyan Yajna at Amreli for 4 days. Pu.Swamiji gave talks on” Bhagavd Gita’s Jivan Darshan”. These talks were organized by Swami Nityashuddhananda Saraswati of Arsha Adhyayana Kendra , Amreli. On 6th Dec. P.Pu. Swamiji inaugurated Satsang Hall at Arsha Adhyayana Kendra, Amreli.
P.Pu. Swamiji gave talks from 2nd thru 5th Dec.2014. Introducing the topic Pu. Swamiji said that the wants for new is natural. Child wants new toys, Youth wants new mobile, Young man wants new car, woman wants new dress/Sari etc.. Therefore there are constant changes, new invention in the outside world. But the basic urge behind the “New” is the same. Human being naturally seeks Freedom. Technology is inventing new things in every field of life to help the humanity to become free from the limitations, posed by nature. We do have achieve certain degree of freedom.
But “No lunch comes free”. With the modern technology, modern development we are paying the price three fold.
(i) We have to do lot of Karma and with great speed. Everybody is very busy doing something or other.
(ii) It seems, Science and Technology is speaking the language of “Bhasmasur”. We have ecological problems and lots of Himsa around.
(iii) Though we are connected with each other, the world has become smaller, In spite of digital connectivity, there is no “Inner connection”. Emotional bond seems to be getting lost. Rather than the sense of belonging, rather than sense of oneness, we find competitiveness, distress and distrust also.
Before this miraculous / marvelous technological development human beings were more free. People has lot of leisure with them. Whereas now nobody has time and there is always a pressure. Fear, worry, jealousy, distress are common trends of modern competitive society.
This is imbalanced growth. External growth in terms of development is good but it is only a “Partial Growth”. For Holistic growth “Inner growth” is also necessary. One needs to grow as human being.
This “Inner growth” is twofold.
(i) Emotional maturity
(ii) Self discovery / Self knowledge.
This is Holistic growth.
Gitaji imparts necessary wisdom of Holistic/balanced growth. The means are (i) Karmayoga and (ii) Brahmavidya.
