Pre-gnan: The hidden jewel
Pujya Deepakbhai Desai was born on May
9 1953 in Morbi, Gujarat, India. One day his elder brother
told him about a Gnani Purush Ambalal Muljibhai Patel (fondly known
as Param Pujya 'Dadashri' or Param Pujya 'Dada Bhagwan'), whose
knowledge of Akram Vignan would help him concentrate in his
studies. At that time, Pujya Deepakbhai was studying
engineering at VJTI College in Bombay. This soft-spoken,
humble and introverted young man found worldly life meaningless and
cumbersome. Little did he know that meeting this Gnani would be a
major turning point in his life, which in due time would transform
beyond anything he could ever imagine.
Gnan - Self-realization
On March 6 1971, Pujya Deepakbhai
attained Self realization from Param Pujya
Dadashri. He was seventeen years old at the time.
Self realization ignited within him a thirst for in-depth learning
and understanding of the phenomenal knowledge of Akram Vignan.
