I now know whose Mother died...
I took Gnan two and a half years ago. For eleven years up to that day I was deeply mourning my Mother's sudden death. My Mother died abroad and I was not with her at the time. The whole duration that she was on holiday I heard a voice in my head, continuously saying "you are not going to see your Mother again". The voice was not mine, but I remember that it was very calm with a great deal of certainty. It came true; my Mother indeed lost her life due to a heart attack during her journey back home. The very evening after attaining Gnan I immediately realised who I was and whose Mother had in fact died. It was as if I had truly woken up and was surrounded by glorious sunshine. Absolutely everything made sense and an overwhelming sense of freedom and stillness with jubilation began.
It seems impossible to experience three very different feelings simultaneously, but anything and everything is possible with Dada's grace. May all living beings find the light of love and joy that I have found.
Aapna Dada mahaan chhe! Jai Sat Chit Anand!
I am Hemant Mehta from Mumbai aged 27 year and I am a software engineer by profession. I am a Jain by birth. In my family, my mother used to do all the Jain rituals (going to temple, Samayik/Pratikraman, pooja, fasting etc).
Till age of 24 belief was that different religions have different gods and we being Jain have Mahavir Swami as our God. He takes care of Jains. So I used to go temple occasionally and recite Navkar mantra without knowing its meaning. I Used to fast on the last day of Paryushan Parva because everyone used to do it. That was all about religious activity. Then I got married and my wife was very much inclined to Jainism rituals and fasting. At that point of time questions started sprouting in mind. Why all this fasting? What's the fundamental science behind all this?
I started reading about Jainism on Internet, subscribed to mailing lists and started asking questions. This went on for months and got a glimpse of the Vitraag Dharma. I found Jainism very scientific and rational. But still it was all at intellectual level and just in theory. And there was always a feeling of dissatisfaction that something is missing. The puzzle continued.
My search on internet one day took me to www.dadabhagwan.org site and I happened to download the book Fault Is Of The Sufferer . Immediately after reading the book, there was an inner feeling that Yes this is it. This is what I had been searching for. That very moment I had surrendered to Dada. Got completely convinced that these words are from heart and not intellectual. Subsequently, found out details of satsang and took Gnan on 10th Feb. '2002.
Soon after Gnan
Immediately after Gnan I felt if nothing has happened. I was expecting something out of the world to happen. But the same didn't happen. I got demoralized thinking what went wrong. Should I take Gyan again? But I didn't have a iota of doubt regarding Dada's Gnan. Then as days passed by, Gnan started showing its power. Automatic pratikramans started happening. The world started looking innocent. Also during free moments automatically, "I am Shuddhatma" used to start internally.
In the months that followed the Gnan
I am Shuddhatma used to be there only in words and somehow, I was not experiencing the separateness from body. There were loads of intellectual questions. Even after reading Aptavanis, asking questions, reading other books I was not getting satisfactory answers. But I continued attending satsang and reading Aptavanis. Over a period of time, I started getting answers from within inside and the separateness from body also started getting stronger. Answers started coming automatically with Anubhav ... growing inner experience ... and realized that the same was not possible with intellect. At that point of time, felt from within inside that "I am Hemant" belief has been completely fractured.
External experience: in your interpersonal relationships, home and life around you .
Dwesh/abhaav has disappeared to a large extent. And if it does happen, instant pratikramans happen. Previously I had the habit of arguing a lot and trying to prove my point but now even that has reduced.
Any unresolved issues after Gnan.
If any, its my own ajagruti ....trying very best to be as much as possible in Dada's Agnas.
I was always in search of something which makes me happy and stays with me. Something which would be profound, permanent and peaceful.
I am a computer engineer working in Infosys, married to a caring husband. So for outsiders it looked like I was leading a perfect life but within I always felt something was missing. I was an introvert person and always getting hurt, restless by small things/people around me. I wasn't able to express my feelings into words and would remain silent most of the time. But attending gnan-vidhi changed my life also my approach to life completely.
Before taking Gnan:
I used to keep on reading/hearing/feeling and I am sure you must have felt it at some point in your life:
• 'Think positive and your life will be full of positive things'. But 4 out of 5 thoughts are negative I have attended some life science course but all there teachings touched me temporary…a day or two to sometime few days but nothing touched my real inner self to have a permanent effect!!
• 'Change yourself and world will change'…can't see it practically happening as always it comes to me that if fault is of other person why should I change!!
• 'Take control of your life'…but practically I see my work-my life-even my mood-my emotions are in control of people and things around me. Things like my efforts at work not being awarded /appreciated like that of my peer (husband's side family). So why is my mood a remote control is in others hand ? !! If you think otherwise, do ponder over this when you are in low mood swing and you will definitely find something external which triggered it!
• 'If you become angry, it hurts you (physically/mentally) more than anyone else!!' I know this and I have also experienced it. But still when it comes to practically applying it at that very moment I just feel like pouring it out and can't see any long term effect!!
• Why is my life to follow this pattern?…and I keep on getting this strict and stressful client/boss/issue to work with while that person always get easy things to deal with!
• 'Karma theory'…Just keep on doing your karma, don't think of result'. But how ? As I think results is the force that drives us to do any task at first place. So there is something important that I am missing here. In order to know the great preaching of Lord Krishna - which help Arjun to attain 'Moksha' in his very life!!...So what is this Karma Science?
• We all believe that God is within us - within everyone. Why can't I see it in the person I hate!
• Being a Jain, as kid I used to go to pathshala (school for learning Jainism) and hear Jain principals from my father like Syadvad, anekantvad, bhavna, paap-punya are shackles of iron-gold. So both are shackles binding you to sansar, like tirthankars we all can become free from bondage and attain moksha. But as I grew pursuing my studies - career and marriage life, I got busy with life. I was away from Jainism. I would always go to Derasar (Jain Temple) whenever I felt bit down or needed of peace of mind and would recite navkar mantra daily. But it was more for some material thing I wanted!
• 'Life and Death'…if I am going to leave all this love/money/home/status when I die then why do I still have to struggle daily in this rat race for such things? What happens after death? The body of the person we know is still there in front of us after death but there is no life. So who am I really?
I always had such questions on back of my mind and struggled to find an answer by reading books or at times attaining some course/sessions.
Meanwhile my brother and mother who took gnan in 2004 and told me to take gnan but still I was not too keen for it. I thought my life is going well. As I got married, got to go onsite with my hubby. But everything was temporary. It was getting over and again I was searching for something new…
Then looking at the change in my mom… She was always loving while dealing with us but I saw that now nothing was touching her, she was always happy no matter what life was bringing. She was never complaining and that touched me and I used to tell her I want to be like you.
During my long leave I got chance to stay with my Mom read Dadashri's books watch Niruma's TV satsang I got the most needed trigger to attain gnan.
I have got answers to some of my question from TV satsang, books but all my question got answered when I took gnan.
After Gnan Vidhi:
That day my life changed. My approach to life was completely different when I took 'Gnan Vidhi' from Niruma in Jan 2006. In just 2 hours I got connected with my real self. Simply the best experience!!! And it's not only me, all who attain 'Gnan Vidhi' experience the ultimate self-realization and separation. May it be an illiterate innocent lady from small village to professional from any religion over world!!
After Gnan-Vidhi ..… we get connected with our real self. For last almost 6 years I am experiencing this. Now Dipali does get ups and down in her life but applying the 5 keys (agna) one gets during Gnan Vidhi all puzzles get dissolved. At times, if the puzzle was bigger than me then I would get the answer from the daily satsangs which I watch on TV or asking it to Deepakbhai in satsang. You can ask anything and everything and always get logical satisfying answers.
Pujyashree Deepakbhai says…all living being are in search of happiness even ants like sweetness. If you throw salt at ants they will run away, so are all humans. All living beings are attracted towards happiness. It's the property of the soul. The way we require a doctor to cure us - we don't do an open heart surgery by reading books, similarly we need a Gnani Purush to know our real self…Atma. From impure dirty water the real elements hydrogen and oxygen can be separated out by scientific experiment…so this is the scientific experiment of Gnan Vidhi which separates real ' I ' from all ' MY '.
Dadashri and Niruma are no more on this earth. Now only Pujyashree Deepakbhai is with us. So I urge you all do take this opportunity and attend Gnan Vidhi. You need to attend just once. After that you will get a new spec/vision (divya drashti) to see this world and words like Atma, self-realization, liberation, Moksha, raag-dvesh e.t.c …… will not be just words ….but will make a lot more sense…the true sense to you. Real meaning of who am I, Why some bad things\sufferings are happening? What is real aim of this life… that she was doing Artadhyan, raudradhyan every moment never occurred to me? But after gnan even if you know or not you are in Shukladyan! Infact we are here in kalyug means, we have blindly passed entire chovishi in this moh-maya!! So do look out for the Gnan Vidhi schedule. Make all positive bhav (intent) to attain gnan in gnan-vidhi…do take your family and friends…
I use to read the Bhagwad Gita around 3 to 4 times ... but never understood the meaning of it. I also took help of many saints, but I always had some doubts & some contradictions. When I saw Pujya Deepakbhai's Program for the first time, I felt something related to Bhagwad Gita & started watching his program daily. After 6 months I took gnan from Pujya Deepakbhai & felt like I have come in this world for this only. Now I feel the freedom completely. Now I have only last wish that I surrender my entire life in his lotus feet and for Jagat Kalyan….
JAI SAT CHIT ANAND..
Dr Mahesh P Tilwani
Since last two years I was struggling in search of Self Realisation. When my grandfather attended the gnan vidhi programme for first time I was curious about it. He attended the Adalaj Gnan Vidhi Programme when we were in Mumbai. And after 2 yrs I got a chance to earn it too! I feel eternity as my search ends here!
I got it a few days back in Ahmedabad from Pujya Deepakbhai and feel a great difference between who I was and who I am. And I'm very sure that I'm definitely going to reach high enough to meet my beloved Krishna.
Before Gnan Vidhi
I belong to a middle class family, where there is lot of pressure for job as we are all struggling for money. When I was studding BCA, one company came for campus recruitment and I was not selected. Due to this I went into depression. As a result I had to take medicines for 3 months. Also there were so many clashes happening, that no one was happy with me.
After Gnan Vidhi
When I was studying MCA in the 3rd semester I was rejected by 13 companies. But there was not a single grief and disappointment which could affect me mentally. I was struggling to my best. Today I have got a job and I'm working as an officer in Canara Bank.
See friends, this gnan is so useful for a student. One thing I really feel that from where or which market I will get so much positive attitude, dedication, concentration, tension free mind, peace and happiness.
All these things have led me to success. Lastly Gyan helps all!
I took this Gnan in 1992 but was not aware of its greatness
until 1994, when I attended Guru Purnima.
I had obtained a book at the Guru Purnima and my mother had read the first page and she mentioned that it was really great and touched her heart. At the time I did not read gujarati as I had grown up in south India and was not able to read Gujurati. But another Mahatma gave me the Akram magazine of Dada. There beneath a picture of Dada were the words Seek any energy (Shakti) and u shall obtain it." As I enjoy reading I asked for the energy to read and understand the gnan in Dada's book. As I knew little hindi I started reading the books in Gujurati with little words explained by my mother. The following year 1995 I invited Niruma to visit my house. On her one day visit she explained some of the words and Dada's Gnan. From that day I started reading more of Dada's books and finally mastered reading Dada's Gujurati and since then never miss reading any of Dada's books and his message and the desire to go to Moksh (liberation)
Experience at work: While in my daily work I started having conflict with a new boss in the department. In 1996 as I did not have access to much of Dada's work, all I had was a cassette of Dada's 5 Agna. Everyday before going to work I would listen to Dada's 5 Agna tape and a page of the prayer in the Pratikraman book. After a month I got transferred to another department where I worked for a year and found out that my former boss was fired. I got back my original job and since then faith in Dada's gnan grew and concluded that Dada's gnan is self working and without any effort on my part.
I am a follower of Pujya Shri Asharam Bapuji. I received mantra diksha from him in 2003. I used to listen to his satsang regularly. I learned from him that this life (Manushyatva) is useless, if you do not make any attempt to attain moksha. I realized the importance of spiritual aspect in life. I thank him from my heart for initiating me in this spiritual world. He always used to tell all his seekers that do not run behind me (my body), pay your full respect to a lord (Guru-tatva) within me. During those days I used to spend my most of the time for three activities (1) do my job (2) look after my family and (3) my SADHANA. I continued that process for three years, during which I realize that slowly chitt-shuddhi is taking place. But I noted that my anger was not going down. My behavior was very rough with my wife, my son and my daughter. I tried very much to control my ego, but was not successful at all. I could see presence of pure sole in the entire world but not in my family. I felt that I am missing something in my SADHNA. Meantime I come across some of the books of Pujya Dadashri. I started reading Aptavani. I also started listening to Niruma's satsang. When I first time listened to Ma's satsang about pratikraman, I understood the concept of conflicts and reason for getting angry with my family. That has created great impact on me. This has created a great puzzle for me, because I felt that I am betraying my Guruji, if I follow dada's path. I asked this question to Pujya Niruma. She told me that they do not want me to leave my Guruji. They just offer this gnan. I may not have to change my god or my guru. I was satisfied with that explanation. I went to take Gnan from Pujya Ma in July 2005 ( Pujya Ma's last Gurupurnima in San Jose California).
After taking gnan and blessings of Pujya Ma, I noted that suddenly my anger started going down. Me and my wife both regularly started satsang in our house (watch VCD's or read dadavani or Aptavani etc.). I constantly pray Pujya Dadashri to provide me with enough strength so that I can live constantly in state of awareness. This prayer has helped me a lot. After one year I also started doing Samayik and I noted excellent results from that. With the grace of Pujya Dadashri now I am working on flawless vision for the entire world. In last one year my entire family took Gnan from Pujya Ma and Pujya Shri Deepakbhai.
In July 2006 Pujya Deepakbhai visited my town - Raleigh. I had a chance to stay very close to him for three days. I was totally impressed with simplicity and humbleness of Pujya Deepakbhai. His satsang added more strength to my sadhana and now I am seeing big improvement in my nature. I experienced a sudden increase in my inner strength.
I would recommend anybody and everybody to take Pujya Dada's gnan and attain peace in their life. I am not recommending this because I am following this gnan but because it is the best and therefore I recommend all the seekers to take this opportunity and live in state of bliss for ever.
My name is Rahul Patel from Lowell, Massachusetts, USA. Both my parents had got gyan from Dadashri but did not get serious about it untill the year of 2000. Since then my Father would always talk about how great this gnan is, at random times he would say things like the world has never seen this kind of gnan in this kaliyug and it is an opportunity that will never come again in history. So I decided to read some books in english in January of 2005 and after that I have been really dedicated. I was so eager to get gnan and I got it in April of 2005 from Deepak Bhai. Before all that I use to be just like any other american kid, eat non-veg and i use to worry a whole lot about my future but now all that has changed thanks to Dadas gnan.
I don't know how to start this, but Dada's science has changed
our lives. I took Gyan from Dada in 1985 not knowing him as a
permatma but as a sant purush. My husband took me for Gyan
vidhi that was my frist and last Darshan to see Dada then we took
my son for Darshan after he was born to HIRABA and took picture
with HIRABA. Unfortunately I was not aware of how much valuable
time this was. I have not missed following Dada's knowlege and
satsang after the Gyan vidhi.
After this we lost in our karma (sansar) for 15yrs. In 1996 we came to USA and at that time I came one month late then my husband. He was insisting me bring the books from India and also Dada's Prasadi that he got from Dada, Shukad no HAR and I was getting mad at him that why you need those books and HAR which you never touch in all those years? but any how is husband's order so I brought that with me and he set up that in our temple. Its just Dada's krupa that husband started missing Dada's satsang and he started to read those books and mean time his sister told him that we have some body here who talks about Dada that you use to follow in INDIA and husband is so exicted to get some info and he get the whole link for satsang in Lowell.But for me it was still kind of blank. But I went to satsang because my intention was that husband, three and four will have good attitude and sanskar. Frist time I went to lowell satsang group. I was so much impressed by love and Bhav from all the Mahatmas.They are so happy that some body who is searching for satsang and met actually Dada.My beginning was just to socialize and pass time but now I am really into this Dada's path and realize that what I have missed by not recognizing Dada.There is no doubt when everybody following Dada then home is not only sweet but Heaven. I and my husband have decided to spend most time in satsang and in understanding this Dada's Gyan more deeply and contribute in seva.To descibe how much happiness this Dada's Gyan can give you I have no words, but I can just let every body know that we cannot compare it with any worldy things, if you have just taken Gyan form Pujay Deepakbhai which is last link from Dada, Dada 's yashnam karma is still working and don't miss this oppotunity. If you read this, just take Gyan vidhi for experince and this medicine will work within you no matter what, make you free from all worries and suffering from relative matters. It is not possible to get this kind of happiness by spending million of dollars.
Raju miss Niruma so much but she comes in dream and satisfy me. After her sad news I feel like I did not get chance to get closer to her and I sleep with tears in my eyes and that same night she came in my dream and told me let's go for Darshan at that time there was nobody around her and she just ask me to go with her and I got chance to talk with her. Next day I told husband about dream and he did not say any thing but sing a pad line "Pagala sunay Dekhai nahi,Dil kera darwaja Khakhdave mahi". also I like to mention Kaviraj pad's one kadi that" Bolya chataye olkhaya nahi, pachhi matha kutine rose, dhode divese pachhdato khaine vicharya te sthano j khudese" Raju still regrets for all those time when Dada was in Mama ni Pol and we use to live in around that area but did attend any satsang. After 15 years when I realize i went specially to Surat mandir, kelanpur and Adalaj. Dada's another swaroop for us is Pujay Deepakbhai and this time, I don't want miss his sanidhay and pray for him every day to all devi devatas and simandhar swami to give him more strenght and long aushay (Life) and finish Dada and niruma's project for Jagatkalyan.
I heard name of Niruben Amin for the first time on 7th June 1992 in California. When I saw her, I felt something special… I can't describe that feeling in words. In short I can say I met my real mother. It was like Love at first sight. From the first Day itself I got inner peace, bliss and assurance for permanent happiness. All these Happened without any speech or discussion….just by seeing her….. I didn't know what Gyan she was giving, but I requested her to give me gyan. Inside me, I felt that I will get everything….spiritually…from her… including moksha.…ultimate self-realization, liberation from birth and death cycle. All these things are coming closer and closer to reality till this day of February 2007. She gave me gyan on 8 th June 1992, but my life had already changed miraculously Even before gyan….just by her Darshan. I had lot of bhakti and shraddha for Shree Simandhar Swami- living Arihant. Niruma became Dada Bhagwan for me. Sometimes people told me I am gone crazy, for Dada. But Dada kept giving me real experience of Pure Love, no matter how weird my behavior was. Feelings and thoughts I have for persons who are "special living instruments" ('ASadharan nimit) for invoking gyan, can never be described in words or by any other means.But I can say that they are making this world a much better place to live. Niruma's vision was that of Dada. She gave me keys to live my life for a meaningful Purpose - of getting real Self-Realization. Out of thousands of great things she told, how can I describe one and not describe remaining things? Each and every word she told akes me Happy (Really). She, along with Pujya Deepakbhai shows me What Dada wished for each and every person in this world ---- get Permanent Happiness.
