Life span of a saint is not to be viewed just as a story. It exemplifies how to live a happy life. Poojyashri has spent about’ sixty years of his life span in assiduous sadhana and tapasya and that sadhana is still continuing. He carried out sadhana¬upasana of Ma Gayatri, Ma Bhuvaneshwari, and Lord Shiva in the caves of Himalaya Mountains, on sacred banks of Ganges and Narmada rivers and subsequently he moved to Girnar Mountains and continued arduous sadhana in a divine cave in Jatashankar area of this mountain. He continued sadhana for 16-18 hours a day unceasingly for many years without any obstruction whatsoever.
From the very beginning, Maharishi Shri Punitachariji dedicated his life at the lotus feet of Sadguru Dattatreya and carried out sadhana. He therefore, did not join any sadhu-sect and instead continued attempting for Darshan of Sadguru. He however, respects all the sadhu-sects, meets and honors all the saints belonging to all other sects considering all of them as the images of Sadguru Dattatreya. Poojyashri says that absolute consciousness is the same in everybody, only shape, size, name and color are different. Although Sadguru Dattatreya has abandoned name and gotra. Poojyashri recognizes everybody and feels the presence of same absolute consciousness in everybody. After the Darshan of Sadguru, Maharishi Shri is following the Rishi tradition as it has been indicated by Sadguru. He still follows the principle of :
मौने मौनी गुणिनी गुणवान पण्डिते पंडितो वा , दिने दिनाः सुखिनी सुखवान भोगिनी प्राप्तभोगःHe is most reticent among the reticent, Yet the most accomplished among the accomplished, For, indeed, among scholars He is the most venerable and learned; The poorest of the poor, yet of all souls He is the happiest and most contented, enjoying far more than even the most ardent of Pleasure seekers
