After receiving Self Realization from Param Pujya Dada Bhagwan, Pujya Deepakbhai's spiritual life began. Graduating with a degree in mechanical engineering, he started his own consulting firm. Despite his involvement in worldly life, his heart was with Param Pujya Dada Bhagwan and yearned for understanding His science. He spent all his spare time helping Pujya Niruma serve Param Pujya Dadashri. With a sincere heart, he carried out every task assigned to him with utmost sincerity. His duties included menial tasks like sweeping the floor, preparing for satsangs and Gnan Vidhis, putting out floor mats, picking flowers off the floor, folding and putting away floor mats and running errands. He also assisted Pujya Niruma with recording, writing, compiling and editing Param Pujya Dadashri's satsangs for books and other publications.
Recognizing that Pujya Deepakbhai is a sincere person with a sincere heart, one day in 1974, Param Pujya Dadashri told Pujya Niruma, "Deepak has a lot of sincerity in him. If someone were to develop and mould him, he would reach the pinnacle of any direction he is guided." During their free time, Pujya Niruma would talk to Pujya Deepakbhai about Param Pujya Dadashri's magnitude as the Gnani Purush, about His mission of the world's salvation and about celibacy and its relevance to one's spiritual progress. She would encourage him to engage Param Pujya Dadashri into doing satsang on finer nuances of spiritual science. The more he learnt about the spiritual science of Akram Vignan, the stronger became his resolve to become a celibate and follow this spiritual path.
