It is the third award a Homa farm receives from the government, after Mr. Abhay Mutalik Desai (Krishi Pandit) and Mrs. Asha Naik (ASPEE L.M. PATEL “FARMER OF THE YEAR” award).
Mr. Anand V. Gaikwad writes:
|The dawning of the new Golden Age (Satya Yuga) will be accompanied by the gradual adoption of a new almanac, a new calendar. Just as 25th December and Easter are important Christian festival dates in the west and Krishna’s birthday and Buddha’s birthday are important festivals for the Hindus and Buddhists respectively of the east, so too will certain dates assume greater significance in later times.
One of these dates of new significance will be the birthday of Kalki Avatar (Parama Sadguru Shree Gajánan Maháráj of Akkalkot, India). In 1918, the year of Shree’s birth, this day fell on 17th May. May 17 is also the day on which Jesus delivered His sermon on the mount. This date is already assuming some significance in western countries at places where Shree’s message of Agnihotra and Fivefold Path are followed. Also, December 25th, traditionally celebrated as Jesus’s birthday, was the day in 1941 when Shree’s universal mission was revealed to Him by Divine will.
