Who am I?
Pujya Deepakbhai explores the question "Who am I?" and explains that, after Self-realization, there are two viewpoints which resolve this age-old question.
Have you ever asked yourself, ‘Who am I really?’ Am I a father, a husband, a friend, an engineer, a passenger or a patient? The truth is that you are a father because you have a son. You are a husband because you have a wife. A passenger because you are on a train. So all your identities, everything you believe yourself to be, are all dependent on something else. So then, who are you? A father, a husband or a passenger?
By not knowing the answer to the question, 'Who am I?', you keep on creating new identities of yourself, consequently going farther away from your true Self. All the suffering in life is because of not knowing your true identity. Until you realize your true Self, you believe yourself to be the name that has been given to you.
So who are you? In reality, you are an eternal Soul. For infinite past lives the Soul has been hidden beneath a veil of ignorance. Due to this, we have been unable to experience the true Self. With the grace of the Spiritual Master (Gnani Purush), it is now possible to realize your true Self via a scientific process called Gnan Vidhi (Self Realization ceremony). Thereafter, you not only understand that you are a Pure Soul, but you also experience your true bliss.
