In the quest for worldly pleasures, humanity often loses touch with spiritual consciousness. Yet, exceptions exist among honourable individuals who steadfastly maintain their spiritual essence, radiating positive energy through their mere presence. Latur district MLA Sambhaji Patil Nilangekar embodies such spiritual virtues, preserving a legacy of profound thoughts.
Endowed with the gift of public service from his parents, Sambhaji Bhaiyya consistently demonstrates generosity and empathy toward the common people. The influence of his mother, Matoshree Respected Akka, is evident in both social service and political contributions. Akka played a pivotal role in instilling the significance of Bhaktimarga (the path of devotion) in Sambhaji Bhaiyya from a young age. As a conscientious public representative engrossed in public sector responsibilities, he regularly visits various temples and dargahs. Firmly rooted in spirituality, he imparts the message of Bhaktimarga to his followers, emphasising eternal happiness in life.
A versatile personality, MLA Sambhaji Patil Nilangekar transcends religious boundaries, visiting holy places beyond Hinduism. He pays respects at Hazrat Surat Shahavali Dargah, a universal place of worship in Latur, offering chadar—a gesture that fills him with positive energy. During the challenging times of the Corona crisis, he fervently prayed for recovery and welfare at Lord Siddheshwar Ratneshwar, the village deity of Latur, and sought blessings at the Sri Renuka Mata Temple in Kharosa.
Commencing each new year on an auspicious note, he visits Tirupati for darshan of Lord Balaji, preferring to spend precious moments with family in a sattvic, devotional environment. The annual pilgrimage to Tuljabhavani Mata, the Kulswamini of Maharashtra, is a heartfelt prayer for the well-being and prosperity of the state.
Inaugurating the prayer hall at Shri Swami Samarth Kendra in Nilanga, MLA Sambhaji Bhaiyya recognizes the positive influence of Swami’s devotee community. Inspired by Shri More Dada’s profound thoughts, devotees gather here, finding solace in Swami’s divinity. Sambhaji Bhaiyya attributes his strength for social service to the spiritual sadhana, acknowledging its crucial role in carrying out welfare projects.
His unwavering commitment to social service, spiritual qualities, and political contributions underscores a philanthropic perspective that has forged a deep social and spiritual connection. MLA Sambhaji Bhaiya’s overall impact, political achievements, and major contributions to social welfare projects reflect his remarkable political capability. May his tireless efforts continue to foster an ideal society through strengthened social and religious bonds, leaving an enduring legacy for generations to come. This stands as a gesture of goodwill and sincere admiration.
