Gnan from Dadashri

Gnan - Life after attaining Self Realization from Param Pujya Dadashri


On July 8 1968, she attained Self Realization from Param Pujya Dadashri and had the distinct experience of the Self being separate from Niru, her relative self. The separation prevailed during all the difficult moments in her life, even later when her father passed away. This experience convinced Her that the enlightenment She received from Param Pujya Dadashri was indeed working from within.

Everyone in her family expected young Niru (her nickname) to set up a medical practice. Her father had plans to build a hospital for her. However, Niru had a different plan in her mind. She thought, ‘As a medical doctor, I can only alleviate physical ailments. However, if I were to serve the Gnani, I can help so many people who are suffering from mental, emotional, and worldly ‘ailments’; as Dadashri would be able to grace them with this unique knowledge of Akram Vignan. She resolved that there could be nothing better than spending Her life helping Param Pujya Dadashri spread this knowledge instilling peace and liberating people from worries and suffering. There are so many doctors to help people with their health, but there is only one Gnani Purush to liberate them!' With this lofty purpose, She resolved to spend her life serving Param Pujya Dadashri. Thus in 1968, at a tender age of twenty-three, she traded a life filled with worldly comforts for one of devoted service to the Gnani Purush.


During the following four years that She spent with Param Pujya Dadashri, She understood the entire science. In giving the ultimate insight to Pujya Niruma's spiritual state, Param Pujya Dadashri used to refer to her as, "Mallinath [the 19th Tirthankar in the past cycle of 24 Tirthankars and the only female Tirthankar] of the Akram path". In 1973, Param Pujya Dadashri remarked on Pujya Niruma's ability to give 'updesh' (spiritual message from a master), saying, “When Niruben speaks while being in the Pure Soul, her speech makes people experience a completely different kind of peace. It has been only four years since Niruben has attained this Gnan, and yet she has the incredible ability to make spiritual teachers and people of all ages understand every aspect of this science.”

Pujya Niruma had a powerful ability to convey complex spiritual facts in a very simple comprehensible manner, which people could easily grasp.
