2nd December is Pujya Niruma’s Birthday, so let us all celebrate this grand occasion!
Pujya Niruma achieved the real heights of the true Self, by following the path laid out by Param Pujya Dada Bhagwan. Today let us study one of her qualities – her flexibility - how she operated and dealt with others using that quality, which will enable all of us to learn and grow in our lives.
Many a times in the midst of doing her work, no matter how important, if someone interrupted or needed her help she would immediately help that person. For example, if she was busy editing an “Aptavani”, if someone would come and ask her for help or some advice she would without getting irritated or disturbed, but with same love and concern, attend to that person and solve their problem and then go back to her work.
When someone comes to you for your help, you find yourself at a junction. The other person cannot move forward until you give them a solution, so you first have to help them. Once they are able to move forward, only then can you move forward. This is why she never kept anyone waiting for her help.
Pujya Niruma never felt that any work is big or small for her, whether it was giving a spiritual discourse or doing routine chores in the kitchen. She was always ready for all types of work. Whenever she used to stay at any follower’s house, many times she would cook for the entire house herself and feed them delicious food, thus spreading her love. She could easily switch over between different types of work and that too in an instance.
Pujya Niruma was very receptive to even the minutest of cautionary hints of her mistakes from Param Pujya Dadashri. She could understand what Param Pujya Dadashri wanted to convey even if He did not say anything. Then she would do analysis and get to the root of her mistake, such that the mistake would never repeat again.
Pujya Niruma used to accept people as they are and while molding them, remained very patient. She even waited years before telling someone their mistake, if she felt that it was not the right time to tell them.
Pujya Niruma was a gynecologist by profession and her intention was to become a doctor to serve humanity. After meeting Param Pujya Dadashri, 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!' Thus, she traded a life filled with worldly comforts for one of devoted service to the Gnani Purush.
Param Pujya Dadashri used to say that “Niruben was a true seeker!” so all forms of insight developed in her in order to become flexible and at the same time she did not miss out on her goal. She had recognized the true value of Param Pujya Dadashri, that led her to become truly flexible. Thus, she was molded and equipped with numerous qualities in order to achieve her goal of spreading the spiritual science of Akram Vignan in whole world.
So let us all on Pujya Niruma’s Birthday, pay tribute to her by deciding and trying to achieve at least a small level of flexibility in us, where we obstruct our own progress because of our own rigidity.

On 24th November, 8290 new seekers attained Self Realization through Gnan Vidhi Ceremony in Adalaj, India
Wednesday November 21, 2018
United we stand to celebrate and spread the Spiritual Science of Akram Vignan and help support the mission for the salvation of the world. ‘A World Worth Exploring’ is a whole new world… one with solutions through the Spiritual Science of the Self!
For 11 days, from November 15th to 25th a phenomenal spiritual celebration for all of humanity will occur.
This historical unprecedented auspicious event marks the anniversary of Gnani Purush, Param Pujya Dada Bhagwan’s 111th Birthday, the founder of Akram Vignan.
Akram Vignan is an accelerated spiritual science for liberation (attainment of moksha) and bestows the gift of Self Realization (knowledge of the true Self) on all of humanity. Being Self-realized is the key to attaining freedom from the endless cycle of birth and death and gaining eternal bliss. The ability to bequeath Self Realization upon others is only with enlightened beings.
Gnani Purush Param Pujya Dadashri became such an enlightened person. Sitting on a station platform, in June 1958, a phenomenal spiritual revelation naturally occurred within Him. At the end of this spontaneous internal enlightenment, which took about forty-eight minutes, Dada Bhagwan, the fully enlightened Self had manifested within Him. This was the culmination of His spiritual seeking and efforts of many previous lives.
"Remarkable powers (siddhis) were instilled within me as a result of not desiring anything the world had to offer."
During the event, followers from all over the world will gather in Simandhar City to celebrate the priceless gift of Self Realization that He has bestowed upon the world. As a collective, each and every follower will pray for the liberation for every being on this Earth.
The entire event will be in the presence of Pujya Deepakbhai Desai – Param Pujya Dada Bhagwan’s living disciple and successor to Pujya Niruma! Thus, it is an event that should not be missed as it will help you make spiritual progress towards liberation.
Janma Jayanti 111 is also for anyone who is seeking the key to unlocking eternal bliss, freedom from worries, an innate sense of inner peace and an accelerated path to gaining moksha (liberation). So, what are you waiting for?
Come, be part of this life changing experience!

“Children’s’ Day” is celebrated on 14 November, every year. It is in honour of India’s First Prime Minister, Mr. Jawaharlal Nehru, whose birthday is on this day and who loved children dearly. The day in itself creates excitement in every child. They feel that it is, “My day!” A day when they can celebrate their existence as a child.
Param Pujya Dada Bhagwan says this regarding children, “This [today’s] generation is open, receptive and healthy-minded. Keep positive intents (bhaavs) for your children. This will bring good results. They will change for the better and this will happen naturally. Today’s generation is the best that has ever been.”
Therefore, it becomes our duty to help these children become the best versions of themselves. In fact, a child resembles a small plant, which if well nurtured flourishes and blossoms to its fullest. If we want a child’s mind to grow, we have to plant seeds that would help them become a good human being. This nurturing includes provision of a proper education, a good support system, a loving and safe environment, values, care, freedom etc. Moreover, nurturing has to be variable to a certain extent. Because every child is unique, his/her nurturing also has to be unique. This is of utmost importance because children sow new seeds in whatever they do, even though the harvest may not be visible right away. Hence nurturing them requires great care and patience.
Another very important task that lies on the shoulders of parents is to watch out for the weeds that also tend to grow. Weeds are the unwanted plants that grow and steal the nutrition from the actual plant, thereby harming the growth of the actual plants. Param Pujya Dadashri says, “A child indeed brings his values (sanskar) with him, but you have to help with that, as it is necessary to nurture those values. He [the child] is looking for knowledge. Each time he does something wrong, explain to him that this is wrong. It should come into his realization. Otherwise he will believe that what he is doing is correct. That is why he ends up on wrong path. [Parents] should understand when to encourage, when to discourage, how much to encourage, and how much to discourage the children.”
So this Children’s Day, let us all keep positive intents (bhaav), be determined to encourage seeds and discourage the weeds not only in our children but also within our own selves.
Wish you all a very Happy Children’s Day!
