The launch of Pipasa 3 music album on the evening of 25th October 2018 has left an everlasting impression on my mind and evoked the love and Bhakti in everybody present there for our Sadguru. If anybody has ever mentioned about ‘Living in the Moment’, I assure that this show was an epitome of it. An hour and a half of Abhangas, full of Bhaktibhav Chaitanya (Devotional Sentience), however, did not suffice our Pipasa (insatiable thirst) to listen to those mellifluous Abhangas that describe the Sadguru Mahima (glory of Sadguru).
Sadguru Shree Aniruddha has frequently been emphasising the significance of Bhaktibhav Chaitanya (Devotional Sentience) over the past few months. He has elucidated this concept through his editorials in the Daily, ‘Pratyaksha’. However, the most awaited and the peak of it for all of us – his dear Shraddhavan friends was the launch of the Pipasa music album This is, however, the third part from the Pipasa series, which has been released after more than a decade.
There are plenty of things from this event that I have captured and ones, which have been etched in my mind until the last. Pipasa literally translates as insatiable thirst (in this context for Sadguru’s Bhakti). Moreover, the name of the album has been derived from the ever so devotional journey of Adyapipada, Sureshchandra Dattopadhye and his longing to meet his Sadguru.
Each of these Abhangas performed at the launch event reflected his [Adyapipiada] emotions and successfully imbibed and brought out the euphoria of being immersed in the Bhaktibhav Chaitanya! The Abhangas written by Adyapipada and Pisa, the one who followed the footsteps of Adyapipa to attain the ultimate goal in life, not only described the glory of Sadguru but the common emotion each of us Shraddhavans share towards our mentor, our Sadguru.
This event was so full of liveliness that even the significant most adjectives can not express the sentiment I have been left hungover with since that evening. Moreover, for the first time ever, Shree Aniruddha Upasana Foundation has created an exclusive Music on Demand [MoD] app for this album release. [Download the app here]
I feel extremely glad that I was a witness to such an event and I hope to be part of more such opportunities to immerse myself entirely in the Sadguru Bhaktibhav Chaitanya, be it even for few of such exclusive moments.
