Mantra-Diksha

divyam jnanam yato dadyat
kuryat papasya sankshayam |
tasmad dikseti sa prokta
desikais tattva-kovidaih ||

“The process that bestows divyam jnanam (transcendental spiritual knowledge) and destroys sin , is called ‘Diksha’ by the spiritual persons who have seen the Truth (desikais tattva-kovidaih).”

Importance as elucidated by Pujya Bapuji

Through Mantra-Diksha, the Guru rekindles the dormant powers of the aspirant. Diksha is composed of two syllables, ‘Diksha’, ‘Di’ and ‘ksha’. ‘Di’, means what is given or the person capable of bestowing divine grace. And ‘ksha’ means one who is capable of assimilating. On one side is the benediction of the one (The Guru) who is capable of imparting the Lord’s grace and on the other hand is the assimilating capability of the aspirant. The combination of these two is Diksha. When the Guru initiates His disciple with the mantra, He also bestows His sensitive power of intuition and empowers the disciple with His ‘sankalpa’ (benign resolve) as well. When a farmer sows seeds in his farm, a stranger cannot tell whether the seeds are sown. But slowly and surely, when the seeds are watered and nurtured, they gradually sprout forth and only then there is proof that seeds were sown. Similarly, we are unaware of what is imparted unto us at the time of Mantra-Diksha. But when we water that seed in the form of spiritual practices and devotion, the hallowed grace of Mantra-Diksha does sprout forth.

Diksha is of three kinds: Shambhavi-Diksha, Mantra-Diksha and Sparsh-Diksha. Shambhavi-Diksha is given through a glance as Shukdev Muni gave to king Parikshit on the fifth day of the seven-day long narration of the holy Srimad Bhagwat. Sparsh-Diksha is given through sparsh. Mantra-Diksha is given through a mantra. The greater the spiritual elevation of the Guru, the more effective is the mantra given by him. If an ignorant illiterate man tells you to chant ‘Rama’, it will not benefit you so much. But the same ‘Rama’ coming from the mouth of a God-realized Saint like Ramanandji (The Sadguru of Kabirji), becomes a powerful mantra. Kabirji performed japa of the mantra with faith and devotion and became accomplished. The mantra was the same ‘Rama’ but in this case the inner self of the Guru was perfect with enlightenment.

If a peon says something, it does not carry much weight. But if the same thing is uttered by the Prime Minister, then it becomes very effective. The mantra given by Saints of great spiritual accomplishment delivers us when practised with faith and devotion. Mantra = manan (reflection) + antar (in heart); that which is to be reflected upon in the heart. Alternatively, mantra = mann (the mind) + tarr (deliver), that which delivers the mind from samsara.

The smaller the mantra given at the time of Mantra-Diksha, the more rhythmic its recital and the more convenient and propitious it is for the aspirant. This leads him fast on the track of spiritual progress.

Naradji was a Saint who was completely un-attached to any community or sect. His prime concern was the welfare of anyone coming in contact with him. Those who have the welfare of others close to their hearts, are ‘Lok Sants’ (Universal Saints). When Naradji initiated the robber, Valia, the mantra had a longer ‘Ra’ and a shorter ‘ma’, and ‘ma’ preceded the ‘Ra’. Valias, life-force was in the lower centres of the subtle body. Naradji gave the mantra knowing fully well that japa of ‘maRa’ would produce vibrations in those centers and gradually he would reach the higher centres without fail. He blessed Valia with Shambhavi-Diksha as well, thus transmitting his own spiritual energy unto him. Valia started japa of ‘maRa’ in right earnest.

Gradually his Kundalini was awakened with the japa becoming more and more rhythmic, and thus the robber was transformed into Valmiki Rishi.

Importance as explained in Scriptures

Shrimadh Bhagawad Gita

tad viddhi pranipatena pariprasnena sevaya |
upadeksyanti te jnanam jnaninas tattva-darsinah ||

Just try to learn the truth by approaching a spiritual master. Inquire from him submissively and render service unto him. The self-realized soul can impart knowledge unto you because he has seen the truth. (Chapter4, Sloka 34)

Shri Guru Gita

By the glory of Guru Diksha, all your actions bear fruit. By the attainment of a Guru one attains everything. One without a Guru is mere fool. (102)

To the person who has the Guru Mantra on his tongue, all acts become fruitful but not for others. By the power of initiation disciples attains success in all actions. (133)

Those who are averse to Guru Diksha (initiation) will never know the Supreme Truth. Without this knowledge, they are like animals. (191)

श्रीमदभागवत

भगवान श्रीकृष्ण उद्धवजी से कहते हैं :

एवं गुरुपासनयैकभक्त्या विद्याकुठारेण शितेन धीरः |
विवृश्च्य जीवाशयमप्रमत्तः सम्पद्य चात्मानमथ त्यजास्त्रम ||

‘ उद्धव ! तुम इस प्रकार गुरुदेव की उपासनारूप अनन्य भक्ति द्वारा अपने ज्ञान की कुल्हाड़ी को तीखी कर लो और उसके द्वारा धैर्य एवं सावधानी से जीवभाव को काट डालो | फिर परमात्मस्वरूप होकर उस वृत्तिरूप अस्त्रों को भी छोड़ दो और अपने अखंड स्वरूप में ही स्थित हो रहो |’

(श्रीमदभागवत : ११.१२.२४)

Shri mad Aadya Shankaracharya

यदि शरीर रूपवान हो, पत्नी भी रूपसी हो और सत्कीर्ति चारों दिशाओं में विस्तृत हो, मेरु पर्वत क तुल्य अपार धन हो किन्तु गुरु क श्रीचरणों में यदि मन आसक्त न हो तो इन सारी उपलब्धियों से क्या लाभ ?

Shri Raman Mahirshi

सदगुरू क चरणों में बैठने से जो बल मिलता हैं उससे सभी वृत्तियाँ स्वकेन्द्रित होकर स्थिर हो जाती हैं | इसलिए शास्त्र कहते हैं की यथाक्रम प्राप्त किए गुरु क अनुग्रह से ही आत्मा का दर्शन किया जान सकता हैं | दूसरे किसी भी प्रकार क सामर्थ्य से उसका दर्शन नहीं किया जान सकता हैं |

Ramakrishna Paramhansa

गुरु सच्चिदानान्द्स्वरूप हैं |गुरु क वचन पर विश्वास होना चाहिए | यदि तुम गुरुवाक्य पर बालक की भाँति विश्वासकरो तो तुम भगवान को पा जाओगे |

Swami Vivekananda

Every soul is destined to be perfect, and every being, in the end, will attain the state of perfection. Whatever we are now is the result of our acts and thoughts in the past; and whatever we shall be in the future will be the result of what we think end do now. But this, the shaping of our own destinies, does not preclude our receiving help from outside; nay, in the vast majority of cases such help is absolutely necessary. When it comes, the higher powers and possibilities of the soul are quickened, spiritual life is awakened, growth is animated, and man becomes holy and perfect in the end.

This quickening impulse cannot be derived from books. The soul can only receive impulses from another soul, and from nothing else. We may study books all our lives, we may become very intellectual, but in the end we find that we have not developed at all spiritually. It is not true that a high order of intellectual development always goes hand in hand with a proportionate development of the spiritual side in Man. In studying books we are sometimes deluded into thinking that thereby we are being spiritually helped; but if we analyse the effect of the study of books on ourselves, we shall find that at the utmost it is only our intellect that derives profit from such studies, and not our inner spirit. This inadequacy of books to quicken spiritual growth is the reason why, although almost every one of us can speak most wonderfully on spiritual matters, when it comes to action and the living of a truly spiritual life, we find ourselves so awfully deficient. To quicken the spirit, the impulse must come from another soul.

The person from whose soul such impulse comes is called the Guru — the teacher; and the person to whose soul the impulse is conveyed is called the Shishya — the student. To convey such an impulse to any soul, in the first place, the soul from which it proceeds must possess the power of transmitting it, as it were, to another; and in the second place, the soul to which it is transmitted must be fit to receive it. The seed must be a living seed, and the field must be ready ploughed; and when both these conditions are fulfilled, a wonderful growth of genuine religion takes place. “The true preacher of religion has to be of wonderful capabilities, and clever shall his hearer be” ; and when both of these are really wonderful and extraordinary, then will a splendid spiritual awakening result, and not otherwise.

Religion, which is the highest knowledge and the highest wisdom, cannot be bought, nor can it be acquired from books. You may thrust your head into all the corners of the world, you may explore the Himalayas, the Alps, and the Caucasus, you may sound the bottom of the sea and pry into every nook of Tibet and the desert of Gobi, you will not find it anywhere until your heart is ready for receiving it and your Guru has come. And when that divinely appointed Guru comes, serve him with childlike confidence and simplicity, freely open your heart to his influence, and see in him God manifested. Those who come to seek truth with such a spirit of love and veneration, to them the Lord of Truth reveals the most wonderful things regarding truth, goodness, and beauty.

Swami Shivanand

From a doctor, you get a prescription. From two doctors, you get consultation. From three doctors, you get your own cremation. Even so, if you have many Gurus, you will be bewildered. You will be at a loss to know what to do. One Guru will tell you: “Do Soham Japa.” Another will tell you: “Do Japa of Sri Ram.” A third Guru will tell you: “Hear Anahata sounds.” You will be puzzled. Stick to one Guru and follow his instructions.

Listen to all, but follow one. Respect all, but adore one. Gather knowledge from all, but adopt the teachings of one Master. Then you will have rapid spiritual progress.

Spiritual knowledge is a matter of Guru-Parampara. It is handed down from Guru to his disciple. Gaudapadacharya imparted Self-knowledge to his disciple Govindacharya; Govindacharya to his disciple Sankaracharya; Sankaracharya to his disciple Suresvaracharya. Matsyendranath imparted knowledge to his disciple Gorakhnath; Gorakhnath to Nivrittinath; Nivrittinath to Jnanadeva. Totapuri imparted knowledge to Sri Ramakrishna, and Ramakrishna to Swami Vivekananda. It was Ashtavakra who moulded the life of Raja Janaka. It was Gorakhnath who shaped the spiritual destiny of Raja Bhartrihari. It was Lord Krishna who made Arjuna and Uddhava get themselves established in the spiritual path when their minds were in an unsettled state.

A Bhakta will be initiated by a Bhakta saint in the path of devotion. A Jnani will initiate a student of Vedanta in the Mahavakyas. A Hatha Yogi or Raja Yogi can initiate another in his particular path. But, a sage of perfect Realisation, a Purna Jnani or Purna Yogi, can give initiation in any particular path. A sage or saint like Sri Sankara or Madhusudhana Sarasvati can initiate a Sadhaka, in any particular path for which the aspirant is fit. The Guru will find out by close study of the aspirant his tastes, temperaments and capacity, and decide for him the most suitable path. If his heart is impure, the teacher will prescribe selfless service for a number of years. Then the Guru will find out for what particular path the student is fit and initiate him in that.

Just as you can give an orange to a man, so also, spiritual power can be transmitted by one to another. This method of transmitting spiritual powers is termed Sakti-Sanchara. In Sakti-Sanchara, a certain spiritual vibration of the Satguru is actually transferred to the mind of the disciple.

Spiritual power is transmitted by the Guru to the proper disciple whom he considers fit for Sakti-Sanchara. The Guru can transform the disciple by a look, a touch, a thought or a word or willing.

Sakti-Sanchara comes through Parampara. It is a hidden mystic science. It is handed down from the Guru to the disciple. A disciple of Samartha Ramdas transmitted his power to that dancing girl’s daughter who was very passionate towards him. This disciple gazed at her and gave her Samadhi. Her passion vanished. She became very religious and spiritual.

Swami Akhandanand Saraswati

A medical student is required to do residency under the guidance of experienced doctor even after he/she has completed the studies from medical school; A law graduate needs to practice law under the guidance of an expert advocate; similarly in order to meet God, to move forward on this unknown path, one needs to take the help of somebody who knows the path very well.

God is such an object, Truth is such an object which can be seen with eyes, smelled with nose and also tasted with tongue. That which is not a subject of physical senses, and that which keeps control over the sensory organs & mind, is your eternal soul or Atman. No sense organ has the power to reverse its nature to focus on your inner self.

The Guru opens the door to our sixth sensory organ. He bestows us with the eye that can see the inner self, and the energy which can show us the Atman-Parmatman(i.e. the soul & the supreme soul). This means Guru bestows the God to the disciple, and the disciple accepts and digests that. The syllable “di” of the word diksha means bestowal of God and “ksha” means the energy to digest. This is how the word diksha is made. Diksha means to bestow & to digest. Bestowed by Guru & digested by the disciple.

The one who does not have a Guru does not have a true well-wisher. Are you one of those who do not have someone to guide in this life & life beyond death and to show the righteous way to help ownself & others? In that case you are very helpless. Do you think that you are so brilliant and are so proud of your intelligence that you do not consider anybody more knowledgeable than you? Brother! This is the limit of self-pride!

There are many types of diksha: by seeing with eyes (drishtipaat), by making a pledge (sankalpa), by touching with hands & by giving mantra. The type of diksha depends on capability. What is this capability? The capability of a disciple is faith and the capability of the Guru is affection. As a child is born when a bride & bridegroom unite with each other, similarly with the union of faith & affection a special kind of will-power develops in life and an appropriate Ishta (form of God, may be Vishnu, Shiva, Durga etc.), mantra & spiritual practice gets decided for you so that you do not change that. Otherwise you will keep listening different things from different people and the person who is good in praising will sing songs of his Ishta & mantra, thus you will then desire to do the same. Sometimes you will go for ‘Yoga’ & at other times for ‘Vipashyana’, sometimes you will read ‘Vedanta’and at other times you will worship ‘Shri Ramakrishna’, sometimes you will go for God with form and at other times for form-less God.

Getting married to the first likeable man/woman means that there be only one man/woman in our life. Similarly, taking a mantra means – there be only one dedication, mantra & Ishta in our life.

Remember one more thing. Dedication alone arises the will-power. It alone makes one a devotee. It alone makes ones mind stable forever. God is something which is in complete equilibrium. When our mind also reaches equilibrium then both the objects in equilibrium become united.

Therefore, the Guru gives us stability & sincere dedication in our Ishta, meditation, worship & mantra, and He also gives us whatever we desire. The Guru is all capable of giving & making others give. I say that all those who do not have a Guru are very unfortunate.

Listen, even when one wants to gamble he needs someone to teach him gambling; if one wants to murder someone then also guidance of an experienced person is required; and then it is surprising that how you expect to complete your journey on this road to attain God, devotion & spiritualism without the guidance of a Guru.

Guru not only gives you mantra, tells you about spiritual practices, enables you decide your Ishta, but also rectifies the mistakes that you make. Please do not mind & I’ll tell you something: “God is everything, therefore the means to attain God is also everything.”

God can be attained in all countries, at all times, in all objects, in all persons & in all actions. It is just that you could not find someone who can teach you to recognize God and that is why you’ve not been able to realize God. Therefore, diksha is a very important part of not only spiritualism but part of life also. Life without diksha is equivalent to life of an animal.

Shri Sureshanand Ji

“The great epics, Shrimad Bhagvatam & Rama Charit Manas, have stated that the SadGurudev is the embodiment of God for a disciple. I’m narrating my own experience.

The early stages of my life were miserable like hell. In those days, tired of sufferings, I used to feel that it would be better if God could take away my life. My mother died when I was just 2 years old. Myself, my brother & two sisters, four of us were grief-stricken. My father got remarried. Two children were born to my step-mother. We used to feel that she really behaves like a step-mother with us, and therefore I & my brother used to steal money from home & run away. Now we did not know where to spend time, therefore we used to watch movies(cinema) in the theater. We made friends with vagabonds to pass time. At times when we could not find money at home or the money used to be in the safe, then I would sell the old large brass utensils kept at home for storing milk (my father had milk business), and roam around aimlessly. The vagabonds forced me into smoking bidi. Members of the family thought that if both of the brothers are separated then may be we’ll leave the bad habbits. Therefore my brother was sent to my Aunty’s (Bua) place in Madras. When I was left alone, I started running away from home more often. I wasted lot of family money. None of the relatives would want to see me. They started hating me.

Then came the first week of September 1983… My father told me that there is no place for me in the house. My heart was completely broken & I had nowhere to go. I felt like committing suicide. Under such adverse situation, I started remembering SadGurudev from the bottom of my heart. The voice of the true heart reached the Lord-Incarnate SadGurudev. The very next day, with the grace of Gurudev, I reached the sacred place – Ahmedabad. Nobody had any place for me but it is the grace of Parbrahm Paramatma-Swarup Gurudev that I got a place near Pujya Shri’s Shri Charana. The most fortunate day of my life came in the Shivir of Makar Sakranti in January 1984 when I was blessed with Diksha by Pujya Shri, cleansed myself off the old bad habbits & experienced the divine love of Pujya Gurudev. I’d never seen the love of a mother. Until the age of 13, I’d only seen torture & pain in my life. But look at the divine grace of Gurudev! Our SadGurudev, who has the character of Lord Rama, personalty of Lord Krishna, the harmony of Lord Shiva, whose words itself are the Mantra & the Shastra, such a reverend Gurudev has given me everything!

…That who is born shall die. But the SadGurudev gives the knowledge of Brahma & takes the disciple out of the troublesome ocean of odds & evens, makes him free of cycles of birth & death.

All the sins are destroyed by seeing such a SadGurudev, one reaches beyond the bondage of Karma if such a SadGurudev touches him, the illusion of life is destroyed by listening to the words of such a SadGurudev. It is the my experience & experience of millions of Guru brothers & sisters.

I have got everything by worshipping the lotus feet of SadGurudev! When I left home, at that time my parent were worried for two of my sisters who were of marriageable age. The financial situation of the house was poor. I started staying in the Ashram & my sisters also took Diksha from Gurudev. With Gurudev’s grace they got married in good families. One of them who got married in Dubai could not have child for five years after marriage. But with Gurudev’s Mantra, she now has a son & a daughter. My step-sister Laju also got married in a good family because she had taken mantra-diksha before her marriage & she used to do japa regularly. There are no words to describe the never-ending grace of SadGurudev. Even now I’m reminded of that day in the first week of September, 1983, when my father did not open the doors at midnight & said from the window itself that there was no place for me in the house. Everyone rejected me, but Gurudev accepted me. If it would not have been for SadGurudev, my life would have come to an end…”

Purna guru kirpa mili purna guru ka gyaan
Asumal se ho gaye Sai Asaram

Jaagrat swapna sushupti chete, brahmanand ka anand letey
Khaate peete maun ya kahate, brahmanand masti mein rahate
Raho grihastha guru ka aadesh, grihast sadhu karo updesh
Kiye guru ne vaare nyaare, gujarat Disaa gaon padhare
Mrut gaay diya jeevan daanaa, tab se logon ne pehachana
Dwaar pe kehate Narayan Hari, lene jaate kabhie madhukari
Tab se ve satsang sunaate, sabhie aarti shanti paate
Jo aaya uddhar kar diya, bhakt ka beda paar kar diya
Kitne marnasann jilaaye, vyasan maans aur maddya chhudaaye

Hari om Hari om Hari om Hari Om – Hari om Hari om Hari om Hari Om
Ek din man uktaa gayaa kiyaa Disaa se kooch
Aayi mauj fakir ki diyaa jhopadaa phuk

Ve Naareshwar dhaam padhare, ja pahunche Narmada kinare
Meelon peeche chhoda mandir, gaye ghor jungle ke andar
Ghane vriksha tale patthar par, baithe dhayaan Niranjan ka dhar
Raat gayi prabhaat ho aayi baal Ravi ne surat dikhaai
Praatah pakshi kooyal kuakanta, chhuta dhyaan uthe tab santaa
Praatarvidhi nivrit ho aaye, tab aabhas kshudhaa ka paaye
Socha main na kahin jaoonga, yahin baith kar ab khaoonga
Jisko garaj hogi aayega srishti karta khud laayega
Jyun hi man vichaar ve laaye tyun hi do kisan wahan aaye
Dono sir par baandhe saafa, khaadya peya liye dono haatha
Bole jeevan safal hai aaj arghya swikaro Maharaj
Bole Sant aur pe jao jo hai tumhara use khilao
Bole kisan apko dekha, swapna mein maarag raat ko pekha
Hamara na koi Sant hai duja, aao gaon karein tumhari pooja
Asaram tab man mein dhaare, niraakaar aadhaar hamare
Piya dudh thoda phal khaya, nadi kinare jogi dhaaya

Hari om Hari om Hari om Hari Om – Hari om Hari om Hari om Hari Om
Gandhinagar gujarat mein hai Motera gram
Bramhanishta Shri Sant ka yahin hai paavan dhaam
Atmanand mein mast hai kare vedanti khel
Bhakti yog aur gyaan ka Sadguru karte mel
Saadhikaaon ka alag ashram naari uthhan
Naari shakti jagrit sada jiska nahin bayaan

Baalak vriddha aur nar naari sabhie prerna paaye bhari
Ek baar jo darshan paaye, shanti ka anubhav ho jaaye
Nitya vividh prayog karaye, naad-anusandhan bataye
Naabhi se ve Om kehalayen, hriday se ve Ram kehalayen
Samanya dhyaan jo lagaye unhein ve gehare mein le jaye
Sabko nirbhay yog sikhayen, sabka atmotthan karayen
Hajjaro ke rog mitaaye, aur laakhon ke shok chhudaaye
Amritmay prasad jab dete, bhakt ka rog shok har lete
Jisne naam ka daan liya hai, Guru amrit ka paan kiya hai
Unka yog kshem ve rakhte, ve na teen taapon se tapte
Dharm kamarath moksha ve paate aapad rogon se bach jaate
Sabhie shishya raksha pate hain sukshma shareer Guru aate hain
Sachmuch Guru hai deen dayal, sahaj hi kar dete hai nihaal
Ve chaahate sab jholi bhar le nij atma ka darshan kar lein
Ek sau aanth jo paath karenge, unke sare kaaj sarenge
Gangaram sheel hai dasa, hongi purna sabhie abhilasha

Hari om Hari om Hari om Hari Om – Hari om Hari om Hari om Hari Om
Varabhayadata Sadguru param hi bhakta krupal
Nischal prem se jo bhaje Sai kare nihaal
Man mein naam tera rahe, mukh pe rahe sugeet
Humko itna dijiye, rahe charan mein preet
Hari om Hari om Hari om Hari Om – Hari om Hari om Hari om Hari Om

निवेदन
तत्त्वज्ञ महापुरुषों का सान्निध्य बड़ा दुर्लभ है। कबीरदासजी कहते हैं-
सुख देवें दुःख दूर करें, करें पाप का अन्त।
कह कबीर वे कब मिलें, परम स्नेही संत।।
संत मिले यह सब मिटे, काल जाल जम चोट।
सीस नमावत ढही पड़े, सब पापन की पोट।।
ऐसे महापुरुषों के आगे जिन्हें अपने अहंकाररूपी शीश के झुकाने का सौभाग्य मिल जाता है, वे धन्य हो उठते हैं। स्थूल देहरूप में अवतरित ऐसे परमात्म-पुरुष को कोई भाग्यशाली ही पहचान पाते हैं। लोग परमात्मा को ढूँढने जाते हैं और परमात्मा इन आँखों से कहीं नज़र नहीं आता, क्योंकि वह अगम्य है। निराश मनुष्य फिर क्या करें? उस अलख को कैसे जानें? कैसे देखें? कबीरजी ने इस पहेली का सुन्दर हल पेश करते हुए कहा है-
अलख पुरुष की आरसी, साधु का ही देह।
लखा जो चाहे अलख को, इन्हीं में लख लेह।।
हे मानव ! यदि तुझे उस अलख को लखना हो, जो जानने से परे है उसे जानना हो, जो देखने से परे हैं उसे देखना हो, तो तू ऐसे किसी संत-महापुरुष को देख ले, क्योंकि उन्हीं में वह अपने पूर्ण वैभव के साथ प्रकट हुआ है।
ऐसे महापुरुष संसाररूपी मरुस्थल में त्रिविध तापों से तप्त मानव के लिए विशाल वटवृक्ष हैं, शीतल जल के झरने हैं। उनकी पावन देह को स्पर्श करके आने वाली हवा भी जीव के जन्म-जन्मान्तरों की थकान को उतार कर उसके हृदय को आत्मिक शीतलता से भर देती है। ऐसे महापुरुष की महिमा गाते-गाते तो वेद और पुराण भी थक चुके हैं।
ऐसे ही एक जीवन्त महापुरुष की पद्यमय संक्षिप्त गाथा को यहाँ जिज्ञासु हृदयों के समक्ष प्रस्तुत किया गाया है।
इस दिव्य शीतल अमृतमय झरने में नहाएँ…. अपने जन्म-जन्मान्तरों के पापों को धोयें…. थकान को उतारें और अपने परम लक्ष्य के पथ को पार करें।

श्री आसारामायण

गुरु चरण रज शीष धरि, हृदय रूप विचार।
श्रीआसारामायण कहौं, वेदान्त को सार।।
धर्म कामार्थ मोक्ष दे, रोग शोक संहार।
भजे जो भक्ति भाव से, शीघ्र हो बेड़ा पार।।

भारत सिंधु नदी बखानी, नवाब जिले में गाँव बेराणी।
रहता एक सेठ गुण खानि, नाम थाऊमल सिरुमलानी।।
आज्ञा में रहती मेंहगीबा, पतिपरायण नाम मंगीबा।
चैत वद छः उन्नीस अठानवे, आसुमल अवतरित आँगने।।
माँ मन में उमड़ा सुख सागर, द्वार पै आया एक सौदागर।
लाया एक अति सुन्दर झूला, देख पिता मन हर्ष से फूला।।
सभी चकित ईश्वर की माया, उचित समय पर कैसे आया।

ईश्वर की ये लीला भारी, बालक है कोई चमत्कारी।।
संत की सेवा औ’ श्रुति श्रवण, मात पिता उपकारी।

धर्म पुरुष जन्मा कोई, पुण्यों का फल भारी।।
सूरत थी बालक की सलोनी, आते ही कर दी अनहोनी।
समाज में थी मान्यता जैसी, प्रचलित एक कहावत ऐसी।।
तीन बहन के बाद जो आता, पुत्र वह त्रेखन कहलाता।
होता अशुभ अमंगलकारी, दरिदता लाता है भारी।।
विपरीत किंतु दिया दिखाई, घर में जैसे लक्ष्मी आयी।
तिरलोकी का आसन डोला, कुबेर ने भंडार ही खोला।
मान प्रतिष्ठा और बड़ाई, सबके मन सुख शांति छाई।।

तेजोमय बालक बढ़ा, आनन्द बढ़ा अपार।
शील शांति का आत्मधन, करने लगा विस्तार।।

एक दिना थाऊमल द्वारे, कुलगुरु परशुराम पधारे।
ज्यूँ ही बालक को निहारे, अनायास ही सहसा पुकारे।।
यह नहीं बालक साधारण, दैवी लक्षण तेज है कारण।
नेत्रों में है सात्विक लक्षण, इसके कार्य बड़े विलक्षण।।
यह तो महान संत बनेगा, लोगों का उद्धार करेगा।
सुनी गुरु की भविष्यवाणी, गदगद हो गये सिरुमलानी।
माता ने भी माथा चूमा, हर कोई ले करके घूमा।।

ज्ञानी वैरागी पूर्व का, तेरे घर में आय।
जन्म लिया है योगी ने, पुत्र तेरा कहलाय।।
पावन तेरा कुल हुआ, जननी कोख कृतार्थ।
नाम अमर तेरा हुआ, पूर्ण चार पुरुषार्थ।।

सैतालीस में देश विभाजन, पाक में छोड़ा भू पशु औ’ धन।
भारत अमदावाद में आये, मणिनगर में शिक्षा पाये।।
बड़ी विलक्षण स्मरण शक्ति, आसुमल की आशु युक्ति।
तीव्र बुद्धि एकाग्र नम्रता, त्वरित कार्य औ’ सहनशीलता।।
आसुमल प्रसन्न मुख रहते, शिक्षक हँसमुखभाई कहते।
पिस्ता बादाम काजू अखरोटा, भरे जेब खाते भर पेटा।।
दे दे मक्खन मिश्री कूजा, माँ ने सिखाया ध्यान औ’ पूजा।
ध्यान का स्वाद लगा तब ऐसे, रहे न मछली जल बिन जैसे।।
हुए ब्रह्मविद्या से युक्त वे, वही है विद्या या विमुक्तये।
बहुत रात तक पैर दबाते, भरे कंठ पितु आशीष पाते।।

पुत्र तुम्हारा जगत में, सदा रहेगा नाम।
लोगों के तुम से सदा, पूरण होंगे काम।।

सिर से हटी पिता की छाया, तब माया ने जाल फैलाया।
बड़े भाई का हुआ दुःशासन, व्यर्थ हुए माँ के आश्वासन।।
छूटा वैभव स्कूली शिक्षा, शुरु हो गयी अग्नि परीक्षा।
गये सिद्धपुर नौकरी करने, कृष्ण के आगे बहाये झरने।।
सेवक सखा भाव से भीजे, गोविन्द माधव तब रीझे।
एक दिन एक माई आई, बोली हे भगवन सुखदाई।।
पड़े पुत्र दुःख मुझे झेलने, खून केस दो बेटे जेल में।
बोले आसु सुख पावेंगे, निर्दोष छूट जल्दी आवेंगे।
बेटे घर आये माँ भागी, आसुमल के पाँवों लागी।।

आसुमल का पुष्ट हुआ, अलौकिक प्रभाव।
वाकसिद्धि की शक्ति का, हो गया प्रादुर्भाव।।

बरस सिद्धपुर तीन बिताये, लौट अमदावाद में आये।
करने लगी लक्ष्मी नर्तन, किया भाई का दिल परिवर्तन।।
दरिद्रता को दूर कर दिया, घर वैभव भरपूर कर दिया।
सिनेमा उन्हें कभी न भाये, बलात् ले गये रोते आये।।
जिस माँ ने था ध्यान सिखाया, उसको ही अब रोना आया।
माँ कराना चाहती थी शादी, आसुमल का मन वैरागी।।
फिर भी सबने शक्ति लगाई, जबरन कर दी उनकी सगाई।
शादी को जब हुआ उनका मन, आसुमल कर गये पलायन।।

पंडित कहा गुरु समर्थ को, रामदास सावधान।
शादी फेरे फिरते हुए, भागे छुड़ाकर जान।।

करत खोज में निकल गया दम, मिले भरूच में अशोक आश्रम।
कठिनाई से मिला रास्ता, प्रतिष्ठा का दिया वास्ता।।
घर में लाये आजमाये गुर, बारात ले पहुँचे आदिपुर।
विवाह हुआ पर मन दृढ़ाया, भगत ने पत्नी को समझाया।।
अपना व्यवहार होगा ऐसे, जल में कमल रहता है जैसे।
सांसारिक व्यौहार तब होगा, जब मुझे साक्षात्कार होगा।
साथ रहे ज्यूँ आत्माकाया, साथ रहे वैरागी माया।।

अनश्वर हूँ मैं जानता, सत चित हूँ आनन्द।
स्थिति में जीने लगूँ, होवे परमानन्द।।

मूल ग्रंथ अध्ययन के हेतु, संस्कृत भाषा है एक सेतु।
संस्कृत की शिक्षा पाई, गति और साधना बढ़ाई।।
एक श्लोक हृदय में पैठा, वैराग्य सोया उठ बैठा।
आशा छोड़ नैराश्यवलंबित, उसकी शिक्षा पूर्ण अनुष्ठित।।
लक्ष्मी देवी को समझाया, ईश प्राप्ति ध्येय बताया।
छोड़ के घर मैं अब जाऊँगा, लक्ष्य प्राप्त कर लौट आऊँगा।।
केदारनाथ के दर्शन पाये, लक्षाधिपति आशिष पाये।
पुनि पूजा पुनः संकल्पाये, ईश प्राप्ति आशिष पाये।।
आये कृष्ण लीलास्थली में, वृन्दावन की कुंज गलिन में।
कृष्ण ने मन में ऐसा ढाला, वे जा पहुँचे नैनिताला।।
वहाँ थे श्रोत्रिय ब्रह्मनिष्ठित, स्वामी लीलाशाह प्रतिष्ठित।
भीतर तरल थे बाहर कठोरा, निर्विकल्प ज्यूँ कागज कोरा।
पूर्ण स्वतंत्र परम उपकारी, ब्रह्मस्थित आत्मसाक्षात्कारी।।

ईशकृपा बिन गुरु नहीं, गुरु बिना नहीं ज्ञान।
ज्ञान बिना आत्मा नहीं, गावहिं वेद पुरान।।

जानने को साधक की कोटि, सत्तर दिन तक हुई कसौटी।
कंचन को अग्नि में तपाया, गुरु ने आसुमल बुलवाया।।
कहा गृहस्थ हो कर्म करना, ध्यान भजन घर ही करना।
आज्ञा मानी घर पर आये, पक्ष में मोटी कोरल धाये।।
नर्मदा तट पर ध्यान लगाये, लालजी महाराज आकर्षाये।
सप्रेम शीलस्वामी पहँ धाये, दत्तकुटीर में साग्रह लाये।।
उमड़ा प्रभु प्रेम का चसका, अनुष्ठान चालीस दिवस का।
मरे छः शत्रु स्थिति पाई, ब्रह्मनिष्ठता सहज समाई।।
शुभाशुभ सम रोना गाना, ग्रीष्म ठंड मान औ’ अपमाना।
तृप्त हो खाना भूख अरु प्यास, महल औ’ कुटिया आसनिरास।
भक्तियोग ज्ञान अभ्यासी, हुए समान मगहर औ’ कासी।।

भाव ही कारण ईश है, न स्वर्ण काठ पाषान।
सत चित्त आनंदस्वरूप है, व्यापक है भगवान।।
ब्रह्मेशान जनार्दन, सारद सेस गणेश।
निराकार साकार है, है सर्वत्र भवेश।।

हुए आसुमल ब्रह्माभ्यासी, जन्म अनेकों लागे बासी।
दूर हो गई आधि व्याधि, सिद्ध हो गई सहज समाधि।।
इक रात नदी तट मन आकर्षा, आई जोर से आँधी वर्षा।
बंद मकान बरामदा खाली, बैठे वहीं समाधि लगा ली।।
देखा किसी ने सोचा डाकू, लाये लाठी भाला चाकू।
दौड़े चीखे शोर मच गया, टूटी समाधि ध्यान खिंच गया।।
साधक उठा थे बिखरे केशा, राग द्वेष ना किंचित् लेशा।
सरल लोगों ने साधु माना, हत्यारों ने काल ही जाना।।
भैरव देख दुष्ट घबराये, पहलवान ज्यूँ मल्ल ही पाये।
कामीजनों ने आशिक माना, साधुजन कीन्हें परनामा।।

एक दृष्टि देखे सभी, चले शांत गम्भीर।
सशस्त्रों की भीड़ को, सहज गये वे चीर।।

माता आई धर्म की सेवी, साथ में पत्नी लक्ष्मी देवी।
दोनों फूट-फूट के रोई, रुदन देख करुणा भी रोई।।
संत लालजी हृदय पसीजा, हर दर्शक आँसू में भीजा।
कहा सभी ने आप जाइयो, आसुमल बोले कि भाइयों।।
चालीस दिवस हुआ न पूरा, अनुष्ठान है मेरा अधूरा।
आसुमल ने छोड़ी तितिक्षा, माँ पत्नी ने की परतीक्षा।।
जिस दिन गाँव से हुई विदाई, जार जार रोय लोग-लुगाई।
अमदावाद को हुए रवाना, मियाँगाँव से किया पयाना।।
मुंबई गये गुरु की चाह, मिले वहीं पै लीलाशाह।
परम पिता ने पुत्र को देखा, सूर्य ने घटजल में पेखा।।

घटक तोड़ जल जल में मिलाया, जल प्रकाश आकाश में छाया।
निज स्वरूप का ज्ञान दृढ़ाया, ढाई दिवस होश न आया।।

आसोज सुद दो दिवस, संवत् बीस इक्कीस।
मध्याह्न ढाई बजे, मिला ईस से ईस।।
देह सभी मिथ्या हुई, जगत हुआ निस्सार।
हुआ आत्मा से तभी, अपना साक्षात्कार।।

परम स्वतंत्र पुरुष दर्शाया, जीव गया और शिव को पाया।
जान लिया हूँ शांत निरंजन, लागू मुझे न कोई बन्धन।।
यह जगत सारा है नश्वर, मैं ही शाश्वत एक अनश्वर।
दीद हैं दो पर दृष्टि एक है, लघु गुरु में वही एक है।।
सर्वत्र एक किसे बतलाये, सर्वव्याप्त कहाँ आये जाये।
अनन्त शक्तिवाला अविनाशी, रिद्धि सिद्धि उसकी दासी।।
सारा ही ब्रह्माण्ड पसारा, चले उसकी इच्छानुसारा।
यदि वह संकल्प चलाये, मुर्दा भी जीवित हो जाये।।

ब्राह्मी स्थिति प्राप्त कर, कार्य रहे ना शेष।
मोह कभी न ठग सके, इच्छा नहीं लवलेश।।
पूर्ण गुरु किरपा मिली, पूर्ण गुरु का ज्ञान।
आसुमल से हो गये, साँई आसाराम।।

जाग्रत स्वप्न सुषुप्ति चेते, ब्रह्मानन्द का आनन्द लेते।
खाते पीते मौन या कहते, ब्रह्मानन्द मस्ती में रहते।।
रहो गृहस्थ गुरु का आदेश, गृहस्थ साधु करो उपदेश।
किये गुरु ने वारे न्यारे, गुजरात डीसा गाँव पधारे।
मृत गाय दिया जीवन दाना, तब से लोगों ने पहचाना।।
द्वार पै कहते नारायण हरि, लेने जाते कभी मधुकरी।
तब से वे सत्संग सुनाते, सभी आर्ती शांति पाते।।
जो आया उद्धार कर दिया, भक्त का बेड़ा पार कर दिया।
कितने मरणासन्न जिलाये, व्यसन मांस और मद्य छुड़ाये।।

एक दिन मन उकता गया, किया डीसा से कूच।
आई मौज फकीर की, दिया झोपड़ा फूँक।।

वे नारेश्वर धाम पधारे, जा पहुँचे नर्मदा किनारे।
मीलों पीछे छोड़ा मन्दर, गये घोर जंगल के अन्दर।।
घने वृक्ष तले पत्थर पर, बैठे ध्यान निरंजन का घर।
रात गयी प्रभात हो आई, बाल रवि ने सूरत दिखाई।।
प्रातः पक्षी कोयल कूकन्ता, छूटा ध्यान उठे तब संता।
प्रातर्विधि निवृत्त हो आये, तब आभास क्षुधा का पाये।।
सोचा मैं न कहीं जाऊँगा, यहीं बैठकर अब खाऊँगा।
जिसको गरज होगी आयेगा, सृष्टिकर्त्ता खुद लायेगा।।
ज्यूँ ही मन विचार वे लाये, त्यूँ ही दो किसान वहाँ आये।
दोनों सिर बाँधे साफा, खाद्यपेय लिये दोनों हाथा।।
बोले जीवन सफल है आज, अर्घ्य स्वीकारो महाराज।
बोले संत और पै जाओ, जो है तुम्हारा उसे खिलाओ।।
बोले किसान आपको देखा, स्वप्न में मार्ग रात को देखा।
हमारा न कोई संत है दूजा, आओ गाँव करें तुमरी पूजा।।

आसाराम तब में धारे, निराकार आधार हमारे।

पिया दूध थोड़ा फल खाया, नदी किनारे जोगी धाया।।
गाँधीनगर गुजरात में, है मोटेरा ग्राम।
ब्रह्मनिष्ठ श्री संत का, यहीं है पावन धाम।।
आत्मानंद में मस्त हैं, करें वेदान्ती खेल।
भक्तियोग और ज्ञान का, सदगुरु करते मेल।।
साधिकाओं का अलग, आश्रम नारी उत्थान।
नारी शक्ति जागृत सदा, जिसका नहीं बयान।।
बालक वृद्ध और नरनारी, सभी प्रेरणा पायें भारी।
एक बार जो दर्शन पाये, शांति का अनुभव हो जाये।।
नित्य विविध प्रयोग करायें, नादानुसन्धान बतायें।
नाभ से वे ओम कहलायें, हृदय से वे राम कहलायें।।
सामान्य ध्यान जो लगायें, उन्हें वे गहरे में ले जायें।
सबको निर्भय योग सिखायें, सबका आत्मोत्थान करायें।।
हजारों के रोग मिटाये, और लाखों के शोक छुड़ाये।
अमृतमय प्रसाद जब देते, भक्त का रोग शोक हर लेते।।
जिसने नाम का दान लिया है, गुरु अमृत का पान किया है।
उनका योग क्षेम वे रखते, वे न तीन तापों से तपते।।
धर्म कामार्थ मोक्ष वे पाते, आपद रोगों से बच जाते।
सभी शिष्य रक्षा पाते हैं, सूक्ष्म शरीर गुरु आते हैं।।
सचमुच गुरु हैं दीनदयाल, सहज ही कर देते हैं निहाल।
वे चाहते सब झोली भर लें, निज आत्मा का दर्शन कर लें।।
एक सौ आठ जो पाठ करेंगे, उनके सारे काज सरेंगे।
गंगाराम शील है दासा, होंगी पूर्ण सभी अभिलाषा।।

वराभयदाता सदगुरु, परम हि भक्त कृपाल।
निश्छल प्रेम से जो भजे, साँई करे निहाल।।
मन में नाम तेरा रहे, मुख पे रहे सुगीत।
हमको इतना दीजिए, रहे चरण में प्रीत।।

पूरा सदगुरु सेवतां, अंतर प्रगटे आप।
मनसा वाचा कर्मणा, मिटें जन्म के ताप।।
समदृष्टि सदगुरु किया, मेटा भरम विकार।
जहँ देखो तहँ एक ही, साहिब का दीदार।।
आत्मभ्रांति सम रोग नहीं, सदगुरु वैद्य सुजान।
गुरु आज्ञा सम पथ्य नहीं, औषध विचार ध्यान।।
सदगुरु पद में समात हैं, अरिहंतादि पद सब।
तातैं सदगुरु चरण को, उपासौ तजि गर्व।।

नर-जन्म किसका है सफल?
दुःसंग में जाता नहीं, सत्संग करता नित्य है।
दुर्ग्रन्थ न पढ़ता कभी, सदग्रन्थ पढ़ता नित्य है।।
शुभ-गुण बढ़ाता है सदा, अवगुण घटाने में कुशल।
मन शुद्ध है वश इन्द्रियाँ, नर जन्म उसका ह सफल।।
धन का कमाना जानता, धन खर्च करना जानता।
सज्जन तथा दुर्जन तुरंत, मुख देखते पहिचानता।।
हो प्रश्न कैसा ही कठिन, झट ही समझ कर देय हल।
धर्मज्ञ भी मर्मज्ञ भी, नर जन्म उसका है सफल।।
चिन्ता न आगे की करे, ना सोच पीछे का करे।
जो प्राप्त हो सो लेय कर, मन में उसे नाहीं धरे।।
ज्यों स्वच्छ दर्पण ‘चित्त अपना’, नित्य त्यों रक्खे विमल।
चढ़ने न उस पर देय मल, नर जन्म उसका है सफल।।
लाया न था कुछ साथ में, ना साथ कुछ ले जायगा।
मुट्ठी बँधा आया यहाँ, खोले यहाँ से जायगा।।
रोता हुआ जन्मा यहाँ, हँसता हुआ जाये निकल।
रोते हुए सब छोड़कर, नर जन्म उसका है सफल।।
बांधव न जाते साथ में, सब रह यहाँ ही जाय हैं।
‘नाता निभाया बहुत’, मर्घट माँहिं पहुँचा आय हैं।।
ऐसा समझ व्यवहार उनसे, धीर जो करता सरल।
ना प्रीति ही ना बैर ही, नर जन्म उसका है सफल।।
मम देह है तू मानता, तब देह से तू अन्य है।
है माल से मालिक अलग, यह बात सबको मन्य है।।
जब देह से तू भिन्न है, क्यों फिर बने है देह-मल।
जो आपको जाने अमल, नर जन्म उसका है सफल।।
तू जगाने को, स्वप्न को, अरु नींद को है जानता।
ये है अवस्था देह की, क्यों आत्म इनको मानता।।
ना जन्म तेरा, ना मरण, तू तो सदा ही है अटल।
जो जानता आत्मा अचल, नर जन्म उसका है सफल।।
कारण बना है जब तलक, ना कार्य तब तक जायगा।
भोला ! बना है चित्त तब तक, चेत्य ना छुट पायगा।।
पाता वही साम्राज्य अक्षय, चित्त जिसका जाय गल।
इस चित्त को देवे गला, नर जन्म उसका है सफल।।
ॐॐॐॐॐॐॐॐॐॐॐॐ

है दुःख केवल मूढ़ता !
यदि पुत्र होता दुष्ट तो, वैराग्य है सिखलावता।
पुत्रेच्छु पाता दुःख है, है दुःख केवल मूढ़ता।।
सेवक न देते दुःख हैं, देते सभी आराम हैं।
आज्ञानुसारी होय हैं, करते समय पर काम हैं।
नेत्रादि सेवक साथ फिर भी, मूढ़ ! सेवक चाहता।
पाता उसी से दुःख है, है दुःख केवल मूढ़ता।।
आत्मा कभी मरती नहीं, मरती सदा ही देह है।
ना देह हो सकती अमर, इसमें नहीं संदेह है।।
पर देह भी नाहीं मरे, नर मूढ़ आशा राखता।।

सुख सिन्धु जल से पूर्ण, अपना आप देते हैं जता।।
इक तुच्छ वस्तु छीन कर, आपत्तियाँ सब मेट कर।
प्याला पिला कर अमृत का, मर को बनाते हैं अमर।।
सब भाँति से कृत कृत्य कर, परतंत्र को निज तन्त्र कर।
अधिपति रहित देते बना, भय से छुड़ा करते निडर।।
सदगुरु जिसे मिल जायें, सोही धन्य है जग मन्य है।
सुर सिद्ध उसको पूजते, ता सम न कोऊ अन्य है।।
अधिकारी हो गुरुदेव से, उपदेश जो नर पाय है।
भोला ! तरे संसार से, नहिं गर्भ में फिर आय है।।
ईश्वर कृपा से, गुरु कृपा से, मर्म मैंने पा लिया।
ज्ञानाग्नि में अज्ञान कूड़ा, भस्म सब है कर दिया।।

शंका हुई निर्मूल सब, अब चित्त मेरा शांत है।।

गुरु को सिर पर राखिये, चलिये आज्ञा माँहिं।
कहै कबीर ता दास को, तीन लोक डर नाहिं।।
गुरु मानुष करि जानते, ते नर कहिये अंध।
महा दुःखी संसार में, आगे जम के बंध।।
नाम रतन धन मुज्झ में, खान खुली घट माँहिं।
सेंत मेंत ही देत हौं, गाहक कोई नाहिं।।
नाम बिना बेकाम है, छप्पन कोटि विलास।
का इंद्रासन बैठिबो, का बैकुंठ निवास।।
सुमिरन से सुख होत है, सुमिरन से दुःख जाय।
कह कबीर सुमिरन किये, साँई माँहिं समाय।।

Sreemadh Devi Bhagvatham

॥ ॐ श्रीमद देवी भागवतम ॥

Srimad Devi Bhagavatam Sri Devi Puranam

The Srimad Devi Bhagavatam, also known as Devi Purana, was composed into 12 chapters, containing 18000 verses by the great Veda Vyasa. Though classified as an upa-purana it is the only purana Vedavyasa called “Maha Purana” meaning the great purana. At the end of each chapter of the 18 main puranas or the upa puranas is the verse “This is the end of the fifth section of the Vishnu Purana”, or “Thus ends the first chapter of Ganesha Purana Upasanakhanda called “The Description of Somakanta”. Where as in the Devi Bhagavatam it is clearly – “Thus ends the eighth chapter of the first Skandha in the Mahapurâna Srimad Devî Bhâgavatam of 18,000 verses by Maharsi Vedavyâsa”. The choice of words by the great rishis is obvious as Divine Mother is described in all major sastras as the one beyond and above the trinities and all Gods.

What is Srîmad Bhâgavat is to the Vaisnavas, the Devî Bhâgavatam is to the Saktas.

Bharat Bhumi is considered the land of saints and seekers of spiritual realization. From time immemorial there has been an anxious groping after the unknown reality throughout the nation. In one way or another, efforts have been made to see God face to face. All the resources of human mind, both emotional and intellectual sides, have made efforts to obtain the sacred bliss of Atman – the peace which is beyond all material understanding. From the Vedic times till date, luminaries like Bhagvan Shri VedaVyasa, Shri Rama, Shri Krishna, Shri Buddha, Shri Adi SankaraAcharaya, Shri Vivekananda, Param Pujya Swami Shri Lilashaji Maharaj, Shri Raman Mahrishi & many others incarnated in India, our country is essentially the the land of saints & sages.
From time immemorial India has never been bereft of great men. For the last 45 years the effulgent spiritual wealth of India, Sant Sri Asaramji Bapu has been travelling across the length and breadth of India imparting spiritual knowledge to awaken the masses. His life is a source of inspiration to millions. Under His guidance, some 1300 Yoga Vedanta Seva Samitis have been established, 300Ashrams and 17500 Bal Sanskar Kendras have sprung up. Besides this Gau-Seva centers, de-addiction campaigns, prisoner reformation programs, and many other programs to support tribal people by providing them food, clothes etc. free of charge, are carried out. The number of Bapuji’s disciples is in crores across national and international boundaries, and His listeners are in even greater number than his disciples. His main contribution has been the revival of the age old Guru Shishya parampara

Pujya Shri was born at Verani village on April 17, 1941 His father, Shri Thaumal, was a wealthy trader of the area and mother Mata Mehginba was a pious lady. Bapuji grew up to be a sweet tempered boy with prodigious memory. He received his early education from his mother, who taught him meditation and worship of the Lord. Bapuji showed aversion to the education which merely qualifies one to fulfill the worldy desires. Though he could get education up to 3rd standard only, but he is the repository of all knowledge. He left the home at the age of 23 and set out on his journey in the search of God.

“Human soul cannot do without God just as fish, without water.”

Thereafter, he never looked back. In the jungles of Nainital, Bapuji met Param Pujya Swami Shri Lilashahji Maharaj, an extremely erudite and self realized saint.
“Re-union of the soul with the Over Soul even after separation of many lives takes practically no time if one meets a True SadhGuru”.

The Ganges of knowledge in Bapuji met the ocean in Param Pujya Swami Shri Lilashahji Maharaj, and immersed him in eternal bliss. Sadguru Lilashahji Maharaj having found the sat-patra (the eligible candidate) in Bapuji conferred on him the Supreme wisdom. The human being merged with the divine, the pious soul realized his identity with the eternal Brahman, the indwelling Lord. With SadGuru’s grace Asaramji discovered the absolute truth and acted upon his advice of creating awareness among the people and inculcate religious and spiritual thoughts in them besides spreading the message of peace and brotherhood.

Just as the sun alone gives light, which all the stars put together cannot do, so the Sad-Guru alone imparts spiritual wisdom which all the sacred books and sermons cannot infuse. Blessed are those who take delight at his feet! Pujya Bapuji, the personification of compassion, travels across the length and breadth of India to preach the message of Vedanta, Humanity and One Supreme Conscious in all beings. His grace is confined to India alone; Pujya Bapuji has visited several foreign countries and delivered lectures on human values, religion, worship of God, peace and values of truth. Millions of people across the globe are followers of this great Saint.

Asaramji Bapu’s sweet eloquence oozes love for all and brings solace to troubled souls engaged in unbridled gratification of senses. Just as the Sun shines for all, rivers benefit all, along its course, wind blows without the slightest discrimination, Saints are the treasure of the society and benefit everyone who takes refuse in their lotus feet. Bapuji’s heart is filled with love for the riches as well as the poor, the educated as well as the unlettered, the influential as well as the down trodden. He himself goes to the slums and serves the needy. Under his celestial guidance many BalSanskar Kendra, gurukuls are running to impart the cultural values to the children and restore India’s glory of “VISHVA GURU”. Several Dhyan Yog Shivir (meditation camps) are organized by Pujya Bapuji where his holiness bestows divine love through the Shaktipata (Transferral of Divine Energy).
What is the real goal of the soul wandering from ages? To attain Perfection. Perfection must be sought in the right place.Thousands of years ago it was discovered in India, that perfection could not be found in the external world, which is impermanent and full of contradictions. Freedom from all limitations is the Vedantic criterion of perfection. Immutable Truth, unity of existence, boundless bliss, this is what is meant by perfection in Vedanta. There is only one thing, which is free from all limitations of time, space, causation: It is absolute consciousness. It is in the depths of consciousness, that perfection is to be sought.It is this total freedom that is the vedantic criterion of perfection, and the individual who has attained this freedom is the ideal of perfection. He is known as the Bramavit, knower of Brahman.

Sant Shri Asaramji Bapu is the embodiment of this ancient Vedantic ideal of perfection. The ideal person according to Vedanta is one who after attaining liberation for himself strives for the liberation of others. What are the morals of a fully illuminated soul? According to Pujyapad Sant Shri Asaramji Bapu there are three: Renunciation, Knowledge, and Compassion. Such a fully illuminated soul is called a Rishi. It is as a perfect Rishi that Sant Shri Asaramji Bapu is said to be the ideal man & True Yogi of Shrimad Bhagavad Gita & Santana Dharma for modern age.

Unlike the philosopher’s stone, which transforms the base metal of life into gold saints company ignites the sanity and leads to self realization.

Sant Shri Asaramji Bapu has poured his whole soul into the betterment of humanity. His benevolence knows no bounds. A glimpse of such great soul takes away one’s sins and bestows on him the peace and happiness. Blessed are those who take refuge in him, sing his glory, and spread his message. Our obeisance to Pujya Bapuji! Glory to Pujya Bapuji!

Shri Gurudev ka Paavan Jeevan Charitra
Child Shri Asumal ji is born…
The God is inscrutable and His Leela(s) (pass-times) are even more so. When God decides to come down to make the world rise out of ignorance, He, in his compassion, assumes an embodied form; and blessed are those whom He selects as His parents. Shri Thaumal Sirumalani and his consort Menhgiba were indeed so blessed. This child incarnated in the village of Berani,on the sixth day of Chaitra Vadi, Vikram Samvat 1998 & was named Asumal.
The day Shri Asumal ji was born, a merchant stopped by Shri Thaumalji’s house & said that day before all of a sudden he had a strong feeling that a great saintly child shall be born in ThauMalji’s family. Therefore he brought a swing for this special child. Many saints & needy started coming for alms to the door of the benevolent Thaumal everyday.

There was a myth in the society that a child born after three sisters brings trouble & misfortune to the family; but instead this family earned more respect, fortune & happiness.
When Shri Asumal ji was three years old the spiritual teacher of their family, Parasuramji , visited their house and professed that this boy Asumal is not an ordinary child & he will be a great saint and show light of spiritualism to people living in ignorance.

Early Childhood
As a child, Shri Asumal ji was quite inclined towards religious epics. Like the parents of many other great saints ShriAsumal’s parents were adorned with the hearts that shone with purity, nobility and great reverence to teachers and saints. Mother is always the very first teacher of a child. Shri Asumal ji would listen to stories of Ramayana, Bhagwavata and other scriptures from his mother. The first seed of spiritual life was sown in his life during this period.
One day mother Menhgiba dressed up Shri Asumal ji in clothes embroidered with silver and gold colored thread and shining diamonds. Asumal was overwhelmed with this new dress. He kept gazing at the blanket of stars in the night and said, “O Sky! I’m not at all less than you. I’m wearing clothes embroidered with shining diamonds similar to that of yours.” Thus, right from early childhood, one could see a different positive vigour and self confidence in Shri Asumal ji ’s attitude.
Shri Asumal ji , starded displaying glimpses of prodigious memory at the young age of three. He would often accompany his elder brother to school. Once the teacher asked the students to narrate the poem which was taught a day before, Shri Asumal ji at such a young age stood up and narrated the complete poem without any mistake. Everyone was surprised.

Due to the unfortunate partition of India the whole family had to migrate from Berani to Maninagar near Amdavad, in Gujarat.
Shri Asumal ji started going to school again in Maninagar. Six year old Asumal was very brilliant in studies. During the recess time, when other childeren used to play, Shri Asumal ji would sit under a tree for meditaion. The teachers used to praise Shri Asumal ji for being very cheerful, pure-hearted and intelligent. Teachers used to to call him Hansmukh bhai (the one who keeps smiling always). While leaving for school, Shri Thaumal used to fill Asumal’s pocket with cashews, pistachios and almonds. Asumal would share these nuts with all other students. At home, Shri Asumal ji would serve his father by massaging his feet at night.
Mother is the first Guru of a child. Mother Mehgiba developed Shri Asumal ji ’s interest in dhyaan-bhajan (meditation and prayers) right from his early childhood. Mehgiba would put makkhan-mishri(sweetened butter) in front of Asumal when he would be sitting for meditation with his eyes closed. She would tell Shri Asumal ji to open his eyes and see what prasaad (blessed food) God had sent for him. Shri Asumal ji would keep sitting in deep meditation for long hours in a small room. When the neighbours would come to meet Mehgiba, finding Asumal meditating so profoundly, they would attract Menhgiba’s attention towards him. Inspired by the neighbours, Mehgiba would ask Shri Asumal ji to do less of meditation, but nothing could move Shri Asumal ji ’s determination.
When Shri Asumal ji saw that school education could be used merely for the purpose of winning bread and fulfilling worldly enjoyment, he became disenchanted to education. Nevertheless he continued going to school. Whenever there was any time to spare, he would go to a lonely place and meditate.

Youth and Spiritual Quest
At a very young age Shri Asumal ji lost his father and the family business started dwindling. Asumal had to discontinue his education and shoulder on the family’s responsibility along with his elder brother. Asumal’s presence in the business improved the profits, but his mind was far away from the business. He always yearned for spiritual knowledge.
After his father’s demise Shri Asumal ji ’s discrimination towards life intensified. He increased the time for mediation and realized that God alone is one reality & essence of life. His concentration increased greatly due to regular, pure meditation and unknowingly all siddhis (mystical powers) attended upon him at the tender age of ten years. No one could stop the fire of renunciation that was enveloping him completely. As Shri Asumal ji grew into youth his meditation and search for Truth intensified. Asumal’s growing detachment to the world worried his family and they decided to get him married. Shri Asumal ji ’s family got him engaged.

“Granite walls however high are not high enough to shut out fate,
Iron chains however strong are not strong enough to trap a free bird.”

Shri Asumal ji kept postponing marriage for two & half years. Eventually, his family fixed up a date for marriage. He did not want to be entangled in the bondage of marriage so he ran away from home eight days before marriage. Members of family & friends started searching for Asumal, they found him in Ashok Ashram of Bharauch & dragged him back to home. Shri Asumal ji was married to Lakshmi Devi.
He told his wife, ” I don’t want to be enmesh myself into this samasara. I want to be free like Shuka, Buddha, Adi Shankara. So don’t obstruct me in my way.” Lakshmi Devi did gave her assent. Even a golden chain could not bind a free bird.
Shri Asumal ji joined a Sanskrit School in order to grow more spiritually. He used to sleep in the school at night away from his wife & practise celibacy (Brahmacharya) sincerely. Four days before exam he was highly influenced by a shloka which meant that, “The one who has disowned expectations & materialistic desires & has adopted the desireless state, the penances & worship of such a person has reached completion.” His desire to attain God got intensified. He made up his mind to break from family so as to realize God.
“Life at its best is a long drawn agony, only its pains bide,
Its pleasures are as birds that are light and fly;
Men live and die and whirl upon the wheel and hug and kiss it’s spokes of agony;
It’s tier of tears, it’s nave of nothingness.
I have been yearning to know if these were the eternal lot of men.”

These were the thoughts that were going on in the mind of Asumal when he renounced the world.

After leaving his dominions, Shri Asumal ji went from place to place and at nights slept on the grass, homeless and alone. He did intense spiritual practices in deep forests, on hills, in deep caves, in various great temples.
At Kedarnath, the Pujari blessed Asumal to become a millionaire, but Shri Asumal ji did not appreciate this. Shri Asumal ji worshipped again & made a pledge to attain God.
Shri Asumal ji then went to Vrindavan, the land of Lord Krishna. Here Asumal ji was inspired to go to the Ashram of the Great Guru,Bhagavan Swami Shri Lilashahaji Maharaj.
Asumal ji had to wait for 40 days in the Ashram to get the glimpse of Great Gurudev. There Asumal ji stayed and served his SadGuru with true devotion. Asumal ji waged war with so many troubles. He used to take just Moong Dalas food, sleep in a small 4.5 feet room. SadhGurudev made Asumal go through several hardships for another 30 days & then finally Asumal was blessed. Swami Shri Lilashahaji Maharaj asked him to go back to home & continue his spiritual practices at home.
Asumal ji came back to his Amdavad home. But his mind was attuned to only self-realization. No one can stop a man who is on his way to Paramapada (Ultimate Realization). Asumal ji passed 13 days at his home but he became so restless that he made up his mind to leave his home again in quest of supreme beatitude.
Asumal ji left his home and started doing intense spiritual sadhana on the banks of river Narmada at Moti Koral. A local saint Shri Lalji Maharaj got impressed by Asumal’s intense spiritual practices. Shri Lalji Maharaj made arrangements for Asumal to stay in Datt Kutir of Ram Niwas (Lalji Maharaj’s Ashram). Asumal started the 40 dayAnushthan here.
One day while Shri Asumal ji was meditationg in the bank of river Narmada, heavy rain poured. Asumal did not want to stop his meditation. Asumal ji went to a nearby fisherman’s hut, and there he sat in meditation, soon he merged himself in deep meditation. Sometime later, the owner of the house came outside to attend his natural call & he saw our Asumal. He thought Asumal to be a thief and collected all the fishermen in the neighbourhood. Everybody in the near vicinity came with their weapons, sticks and swords etc. But Asumal was deeply merged in meditation. After some time he slowly opened his eyes and saw many people around him with all kinds of weapons, making noise. But who can do anything to a person who has conquered all sensory tendencies, like evil, animosity.

“No armor is invented till today, by man which has not succumbed to the attack of weapons and no defeat is known by him who has armored his soul with the training of the ‘Self’ with inward discipline.”
All people that came there gazed at him in wonder and beheld him with respect. They realized that he is a great saint doing meditation. Shri Asumal ji immediately left that place with heavenly dignity. All these people asked for forgiveness & looked upon him with great reverence and esteem.
When Shri Asumal ji ’s wife and mother came to know that he was staying at Moti Koral they visited him. They requested him to come back But Shri Asumal ji told them without completing the Anushthan he cannot come. He successfully completed the Anushthan. The whole village & Shri Lalji Maharaj himself came to the railway station to see them off to Amdavad. As soon as the train started moving from Miyagam junction, Asumal jumped out and boarded a train towards Mumbai.
Asumal reached Mumbai & went for darshan of SadGurudev Shri Lilashahji Maharaj. It was the second day of Shukla Paksha in the month of Ashwin Samvat 2021, when after seeing his disciple’s great yearning to attain the truth and his intense and resolute will against all odds, the great Guru showered Purna Guru Kripa on him at the young age of 23. Swami Lilashahji blessed Asumal with ultimate knowledge, thereafter Asumal became merged in samadhifor two and half days. Sadhak Asumal was transformed into Swami Shri Asaramji Maharaj by the golden touch of Great SadhGurudev (master). Asumal got enlightenment.
The end of sadhana was reached at last. The human being became a divine being.
Asumal started seeing the one supreme being in all. With SadhGuru’s grace Asaramji discovered the absolute truth. Affinity for the world disappeared. Each moment of life was overflowing with the divine realization of existence of One in All. The stage beyond pride & material attractions was reached. The final destination where the Jiva becomes one with Parmatman was reached. The blissful state where nothing can separate one from God was finally attained.
Purna Guru Kripa Mili, Purna Guru Ka Gyan
Asumal Se Ho Gaye Sai Asaram…
Pujya Swami Shri Lila Shahji Maharaj instructed Asaramji to serve the humanity by staying as a householder.
After Self-Realization Sant Shri Asaramji Bapu stayed in solitude for seven years. Pujya Shri used to stay fully immersed in the bliss of the Atman (Brahmanand Masti) & give religious discourse to all those who came for darshana (meet & see Bapuji). Pujya Shri spent His solitude in various places like Disa, Naareshwar Dhaam, the Himalayas, Mt. Abu & so on…

Stay in Disa
By the commands of SadGuru, Sant Shri Asaramji Bapu started living in the Ashram of Disa village near Palanpur in Gujarat. Pujya Shri used to stay closed inside a secluded small room throughout the day & go to Banas river in the mornings & evenings. One day while coming back from the Banas river, Pujya Shri saw a dead cow surrounded by sveral villagers in front of the Disa Ashram. Swamiji gave some water to one villager to sprinkle it on the cow & quietly left the place. To the amazement of all, as soon as the water was sprinkled on the cow, it turned alive.
Sometimes Pujya Shri used to go for alms to the village during his stay in Disa. One day when he went to a house & said, ‘Narayan Hari”, the woman of the house insulted Pujya Shri & used foul language. She did not know that a Self-Realized saint had come to her door. Pujya Shri remained calm & said to His inner self, “Now see God in the person who is insulting you!” The woman was surprised by the tranquility of Pujya Shri.
Once a businessman named Chandiram came to Disa Ashram to get blessings from Bhagvan Swami Shri Lilashahji Maharaj before getting married for the third time to a young 18 year old girl. His earlier two wives were already dead. Pujya Shri gave a divine look & said to him, “Why should you go for this marriage? I would get you married to God!” Chandiram’s life changed all of a sudden. His lust simply vanished & instead of getting married, he started out his spiritual journey. Now he is better known as Mahant Chandiram & is a resident of Ashram.
A householder named Shivlal had a hotel in Disa. One day he heard about Pujya Shri from his friend & went for darshan. Shivlal had heard that this saint stayed in a closed room for days. On his way to see Pujya Shri, he was wondering what this saint used to eat staying in a closed room. To his utter surprise, Pujya Shri came to know what was going on in his mind & while giving discourse Swamiji mentioned that nobody needs to worry about what he ate. Shivlal came to know that Bapu is Antaryami (one who can read mind & knows everything). Shivlal became a follower & now he is a resident of Ashram.
One day Pujya Shri saw a lame labourer near the river. This man was very upset as he had been fired from his job. Pujya Shri not only assured him that he would get his job back but also made him cross the river by carrying him on the shoulders. This man was bewildered when his employer accepted him back, offered a simpler job with increased salary.

Several people got rid of their age old addictions for alcohol, tobacco & non-veg food here at Disa after listening to Pujya Shri’s satsang. People troubled with life found solace in Pujya Shri’s words & several well-established people realized the importance of spiritualism.
…But the folks of Disa could not recognize Bapuji’s divinity. Once after satsang Pujya Shri jokingly said, “A saint and a materialistic person are alike, isn’t it?” The audience did not understand this statement & started replying in affirmation. Pujya Shri got up immediately, removed the cloth which was wrapped around his body, & made his journey onwards in under shorts. People asked for forgiveness but a saint has no affinty for the world. The actions of a saint cannot be interpreted by a common man ..

At Naareshwar Dhaam
Pujya Shri left Disa & went deep inside the dense forests of Naareshwar Dhaam. Bapuji sat under a tree for meditation for the whole of night. In the morning he felt a little hungry & thought, “I’ll keep sitting here. The one who needs me shall send food. The Creator Himself would come…” Very soon two farmers came & offered milk & fruits to Swamiji. They said that in their dreams they were inspired to takePrasad for Pujya Bapuji. Pujya Shri came to know that this is God’s Leela. The farmers said that they would return with more villagers. Asaramji realized that God is the basis of all.
Pujya Shri wrote on the ground:
Jogi to ramta bhala (A saint does not stay at one place!) and left the place…

The Himalayas
Swamiji then went to Nainital to pay visit to Pujya Swami Shri Lilashahji Maharaj. Getting instructions from SadGurudev, Pujya Shri headed for the Himalayas. Pujya Shri spent time in various places like Rishikesh, Gangotri, Uttar Kashi, Badrinath, Kedarnath etc.

Mt. Abu
Sometimes in summer Pujya Shri would go into the dangerous jungles of Mount Abu. Pujya Shri knew that the same Supreme Soul resides even in the ferocious animals therefore no animal could ever disturb Bapuji’s tranquility. In Mt. Abu Pujya Shri used to give satsang in the evenings.
Address to All India Vedanta-Ramayana Parliament in 1971
Pujya Shri captured the hearts of many by the sweet nectar of His satsang in the All India Vedanta-Ramayana Parliament held at Arya Nagar, Kanpur. There were 41 other famous orators also present in the gathering.
Life as a Householder:
Pujya Shri met Param SadhGurudevSwami Lilashahji in Haridwar in Vikram Samvat 2028, & by the commands of SadGuru, inorder to provide a goodexample to common householders, Swamiji entered the life of a householderGrahasthashram . It was the day of Guru Punam in Vikram Samvat 2028 when Pujya Shri reached Amdavad after staying in solitude for seven years.Bapuji lead a life similar to that of saints like Kabir and Ekanath.Bapuji chose a peaceful place in the Motera village on the banks of Sabarmati river. Later on some of the devotees constructed a small room for Swamiji which is very well known as “Moksha Kutir”. Though the village of Motera was very famous for its thieves and boot-leggers, Bapuji lived there submerged in the joy of communion with Atman.

The fragrance of this beautiful spiritual flower spread in all directions inviting to sip the nectar. Thousands of people started coming to Motera to get solace from their worldly afflictions and to get peace at the feet of Sant Shri Asaramji Bapu.

Slowly that place has become a great spiritual center. It is now called Sant Shri Asaramji Ashram. All sections of people come there to get peace and spiritual solace. Many new Ashrams & Yoga Vedanta Samiti’s have also evolved since then. The Ashram conducts several spiritual retreats, yoga camps & humanitarian work. Click here to read more about Sant Shri Asaramji Ashram & Yoga Vedanta Samitis present world wide.
Divine personalities like Krishna, Buddha, Rama,& Adi Shankara influence the lives of millions of people for centuries. Their influence is not limited by time. Nay, it undergoes a process of time enlargement : with the passage of centuries the Flurry of these prophets, instead of decreasing, goes on increasing.
Each saint or world teacher comes as the embodiment of the dominant ideal of a particular age, and his life becomes the highest moral standard and ideal for the people of that age.
Man has been continually discovering new ways of exploiting nature and improving the means of production of food, clothing, other necessities and also the means of transport and travel. Each epoch with it’s changed condition, throws new challenges to the people. These external challenges can be met only by mobilizing the inner spiritual resources of the people. It is through ideas and ideals that the inner energies of man get mobilized. Certain charismatic individuals who become masters of new religions or new religious movements develop the new ideals necessary for each epoch.
It is to this class of saints and world teachers that Sant Shri Asaramji Bapu belongs. Swamiji’s advent was a historical necessity. There was the need for a charismatic individual who could create and vitalize the basic ideals of the present age. Sant Shri Asaramji Bapu’s exemplary life has fulfilled this requirement. Pujya Bapuji is the source of energy which is emitting great Vedantic ideals in the present age for the welfare of mankind.
Beyond the bare rudiments of literacy, Shri Asaramji Bapu never had formal education. Most of Swamiji’s youth was spent in the intense practice of spiritual sadhana. Pujya Shri virtually lived the life of a monk depending solely on God’s grace. How can such a man be regarded as the ideal man for the modern age which idealizes film stars, sportsmen, politicians, and now for a change, miracle-working yogis? See any newspaper, or magazine and you will find almost every page displaying pictures of men and women in all kinds of dress and posture who project idealized pictures of contemporary society. No other age ever allowed lust and greed to dominate the minds of the people so completely as the modern age has done. Every thing in modern society is valued for the sake of money. Can Shri Asaramji Bapu who is a sage become the ideal for the people of such a society?

The answer is that an ideal stands for perfection & imperfect individuals cannot give these ideals. Western cultures consider beauty, truth and goodness as the criteria of perfection. However physical beauty is only skin deep, and is as evanescent as youth itself. Truth is sought through science, to another mystery beyond. The basis of goodness is unselfish love, but in the market oriented culture of modern society unselfishness is the scarcest commodity.
Perfection must be sought in the right place. Thousands of years ago it was discovered in India, that perfection could not be found in the external world, which is impermanent and full of contradictions. Freedom from all limitations is the Vedantic criterion of perfection. Immutable Truth, unity of existence, boundless bliss, this is what is meant by perfection in Vedanta. There is only one thing, which is free from all limitations of time, space, causation: It is absolute consciousness. It is in the depths of consciousness, that perfection is to be sought.It is this total freedom that is the vedantic criterion of perfection, and the individual who has attained this freedom is the ideal of perfection. He is known as the Bramavit, knower of Brahman.

Sant Shri Asaramji Bapu is the embodiment of this ancient Vedantic ideal of perfection. The ideal person according to Vedanta is one who after attaining liberation for himself strives for the liberation of others. Such a fully illuminated soul is called a Rishi. It is as a perfect Rishi that Sant Shri Asaramji Bapu is said to be the ideal man & True Yogi of Shrimad Bhagavad Gita for modern age.
