Happy Children’s Day!

Monday November 13, 2017

As soon as November 14th arrives, children all over India look forward to celebrate Children’s Day, as on this day they have special celebrations in their schools. It is actually the birthday of Shree Jawaharlal Nehru, the first Prime Minister of India, who used to love children.

Children are quick learners and therefore you may have observed that it is often easier to teach a child than an adult. But have you ever thought, what we can learn from children? Let us have a look at what a child can teach us.

If you observe a child, you will find: 

  • He is always ready to learn new things.
  • He is always in his natural and spontaneous form, he never worries what people will think about him or what will happen in the future and hence always lives freely.
  • He heartily accepts his mistakes and wishes not to repeat them again.
  • He does not hesitate to do good things, if he thinks it is ok.
  • He is intellect-free and thereby has no opinions for whomever he meets.
  • He is happy for no reason and forgets problems easily.
  • He does things for himself, not to show others.

Gnanis (the Self-Realized Ones) also have such childlike traits. The only difference is that a child’s ego and intellect are in a dormant state whereas the Gnani’s ego and intellect have been permanently dissolved by acquiring the right understanding and right knowledge.

A wise man would ask, ‘Why only learn from a child? Why not dissolve the intellect and ego completely and remain as freely as the Gnani lives?’

But is this possible?

Surely it is!

This can happen after we gain the knowledge of the Self from the Gnani. This right knowledge and understanding allow us to remain in a state as free as the Gnani’s, while continuing to engage in worldly life.

Ambalal Muljibhai Patel was born on November 7, 1908, in Tarsali a village near Vadodara (Gujarat), India. He later came to be known as Param Pujya Dada Bhagwan, the founder of Akram Vignan, the spiritual science of the step-less path to Self Realization.

Param Pujya Dada Bhagwan was very analytic from childhood. He would analyze the events that occurred in His daily life, and had the ability to draw exact conclusions from them. Once He was able to extract a conclusion from an incident, He never forgot what He learnt and as a result never made the same mistake for the rest of His life. Consequently, He was able to become free from all His mistakes and experience eternal bliss.

Let us look at one incident that occurred in Param Pujya Dadashri’s life before spontaneous Self Realization occurred within Him and see what conclusion He drew from that incident.

A cat had slipped into the kitchen when Param Pujya Dadashri was at home. He quietly kept an open pot of curd for the cat. The cat in temptation of the curd, put its head inside the pot and got trapped. Param Pujya Dadashri, ran to rescue the cat, helped it remove it’s head and concluded, ‘Ah! One has to pay so dearly for one’s greed. Even after having gone through so much trouble, the cat will forget everything. The next time it sees a vessel full of milk or curd, it will make the same mistake, get trapped in the circle of greed and endure pain. Just like the cat, humans too forget the unhappiness they went through the previous time and again turn greedy and make the same mistake.’

Just as Param Pujya Dadashri drew conclusions from every incident in His life and did not let the same mistakes happen again, we can learn to draw conclusions from our life’s incidents and make an active effort not to let the same mistakes occur again. Let us celebrate the birth anniversary of Param Pujya Dada Bhagwan by learning this invaluable lesson from Him and thereby take a step towards improving ourselves and turn our lives towards eternal bliss.
