Rahuri has special recognition in Sahaja Yoga and it’s well-known over the world. The family of Her Holiness Shri Mataji’s father is from village Shingve Naik and whereas Her mother’s and grand mother’s family is from village Nandgaon. Both these villages are on the border of Rahuri tehsil and at a distance of two km from each other. While talking about Rahuri, Shri Mataji always used to say that it is her maika [mother’s place]. Thus she had tremendous love for Rahuri.
On 22nd and 23rd march 1975, she came to the agricultural university at Rahuri to give self realization to the staff and students of the university. During these public programs, Her Holiness Shri Mataji used to give self realization enmasse to the villagers. Besides villages Shingve and Nandgaon being her parents place,  villages namely, Musalwadi, Avadgaon(Aradgaon) and Taklimiya occupy important place in Sahaja Yoga for various spiritual reasons. Rahuri used to be the important visiting place during India tours of Sahajayogis coming from abroad. Perhaps the first marriage in Sahaja Yoga was held in Rahuri. Her Holiness Shri Mataji had suggested to the villagers of Aradgaon to change the name of village as Avadgaon as She liked this place.

  • The Aradgaon Nirmal Dham Ashram on about 7 acres of land was established in 1987
  • Sakar Pujas and India tours with Shri Mataji’s for 11 years from 1975 to 1985
  • Ekadesha  Rudra Swayambhu Shilanyas done by Her Holiness Shri Mataji in 1982 at Musalwadi
  • Sahaja Women’s Welfare Society was also founded by Her Holiness Shri Mataji at Avadgaon in 1987

In words of Shri Mataji

This is the place where My forefathers reigned as kings and they had a dynasty also. Now, the other place we went to, Musalwadi, is the place where the Goddess first of all hit him (Rahu the demon) with a beam so it is called as Musalwadi. It means a beam. Musol means a beam. So this is a place where Goddess has done a lot of work. There is another place called Aradgaon where he was running and he was screaming, so it’s called as arad, ‘arad’ means ‘screaming’ (gaon means village). So the whole place is already very much vibrated because also the Nathas, the nine Nathas, we saw one Ganivnath there, but all of them lived in this area, worked very hard. The last of all, Sainath, was very near here, as you know, in Shirdi. So this is a very, very holy place and a place of great worship where many a times the Goddess was worshipped. Rahuri itself, if you go round, you find there are 9 deities sitting there. These are also created by Mother Earth, they are beautiful things. No-one knows about them. You can go and have a look. There are 9 of them and these represent the 9 incarnations of the Goddess, or 9 styles of the Goddess. Now, in this beautiful place we are here, though it is spoiled by many things, but, as you can see, it’s very comfortable for our Spirit to be here.
