On a June evening in 1958 at around six o'clock, Ambalal
Muljibhai Patel, a family man, a contractor by profession,
was sitting on a bench on the busy platform number 3 of Surat's
train station. Surat is a city in south Gujarat, a western state in
India. What happened within the next forty-eight minutes was
phenomenal. Spontaneous Self-realization occurred within Ambalal M.
Patel. During this event his ego completely melted and from that
moment onwards he became completely detached from all Ambalal's
thoughts, speech and acts. He became the Lord's living instrument
for the salvation of mankind, through the path of knowledge. He
called this Lord, Dada Bhagwan. To everyone he met, he would say,
"This Lord, Dada Bhagwan is fully manifest within me. He also
resides within all living beings. The difference is that within me
He is completely expressed and in you, he is yet to manifest."
Who are we? What is
God? Who runs this world? What is karma? What is liberation? Etc.
All the world's spiritual questions were answered during this
event. Thus nature offered absolute vision to the world
through the medium of Shree Ambalal Muljibhai Patel.
