In this 4th playlist, we listen to the story of a staunch ‘Datta’ devotee, Bapurao Kulkarni of Lohogaon.
Bapurao Kulkarni literally lived the ‘Mangalacharan’ shlok discussed in Chapter 4. Ridden with a deadly throat disease, Bapurao rushes to Gangapur to find a cure. By his staunch, unwavering devotional service, Bapurao wins over the grace of Shree Gurudev Datta , who initially instructs him to perform ‘Parthiv Ganesh Pujan’ on a regular basis and later commands him to seek refuge at the feet of Parabrahma Shree Akkalkot Swami Samartha.
Swami Samartha’s boundless blessings not only cure Bapurao of his ailment but slowly transform him into the renowned poet- saint ‘DasBapu’.
