“Live with Love….Promise?”
These are not just any ordinary words, but this is the final message given to the world by Pujya Niruma. Though Pujya Niruma left her mortal body on March 19, 2006, she continues to live in the hearts of millions of people who have been touched by her in some way or another.
One can easily associate several adjectives like ‘Embodiment of Love’, ‘The Mother of the World’, ‘Icon of Humility’ etc to Pujya Niruma. In addition to all of these, she is also a living example of the quality of ‘nobility’. Nobility means to be big-hearted; it means to be able to give something of yours to others if they like it and if it makes them happy.
Pujya Niruma always lived by Param Pujya Dadashri’s principle that a living being is more valuable than any material object. Hence, it is important not to hurt them or make them unhappy in anyway. Pujya Niruma adhered to this principle throughout her life and no matter how big the object, she never hesitated to give it away to people to make them happy. Truly fortunate are those who have been blessed by her in this manner!
A heartfelt salute to the Divine Mother who continues to inspire millions of people across the world!

It’s that time of the year again to play with colors and spread joy and celebrate the festival of ‘Holi’. As per the ancient legend, Holi marks the victory of ‘good’ over ‘evil’. With time, even though the celebration styles have changed the essence remains the same. The huge bonfire that is lit on the Holi eve is a symbol of triumph over all the impurities and negativities in life. Once these impurities are burnt, what remains is the magnificent pure form of Oneself, which is the ‘Pure Soul’.
Consider this, while driving, if there is fog and mist on the way, can you see clearly what lies ahead of you? No! However, the vision becomes clear as soon the skies have cleared. Similarly, once we get rid of the impurities of anger, pride, greed, deceit, ego and falsehood we are able to experience the eternal bliss of one’s real Self. One’s faults can only be burned by the grace of someone who Himself has become free of all these impurities. And what remains in the end? It is the eternal and unmatched bliss of one’s Real Self.
So what are you waiting for? Get ready to celebrate Holi by winning over the negativities in life!

It is that time of the year when we celebrate the Gnan Day (Self Realization anniversary) of our beloved Pujya Deepakbhai. The day one attains the Real Knowledge of the true Self, the Knowledge which cannot be changed or taken away under any circumstances is known as a Gnan Day.
Pujya Deepakbhai attained Self Realization from Param Pujya Dada Bhagwan on March 6, 1971 at the age of 17. With this began his spiritual journey with Pujya Niruma, who guided him every step of the way.
He never let any ego arise in the process of learning Param Pujya Dadashri’s science of Akram Vignan or while doing seva in Param Pujya Dadashri’s mission of the salvation of the world. Param Pujya Dadashri says, “Laghuttam (humble) ego means to conduct interactions of worldly life with the intent, ‘I am smaller than everyone.’ That will take him towards liberation.” We can observe this humblest of intent in Pujya Deepakbhai’s every worldly interaction even today.
Let us all pray to Shree Simandhar Swami to bless Pujyashree to carry forward the baton of jagat kalyan (salvation of the world).

Param Pujya Dada Bhagwan spent 50 years of His life in Vadodara, Gujarat (India). From the 24th to 26th of February, a grand celebration was organized for the opening of a Non-Sectarian Temple, Trimandir on the sacred land.
Pujya Deepakbhai in the presence of thousands of followers and non-followers alike performed the Sanctification ceremony of the idols in the Trimandir. The entire event was webcasted live which enabled thousands of followers to join in the celebrations from all over the world.
The Trimandir emanated divine energies throughout the entire event and the subtle presence and blessings of Param Pujya Dada Bhagwan, Pujya Niruma and all the Gods and Goddesses could be felt throughout.
Idols of Lord Simandhar Swami, Lord Krishna and Lord Shiva, the three major religions in India, as well as idols of other Gods and Goddesses (including Lord Ganesh, Lord Hanuman, Shri Saibaba, Lord Mahavir, Amba Mataji, Padmavati Devi, Chakreshvari Mataji and Mahakali Mataji – just to name a few) are housed under the roof of the Trimandir. The Sanctification ceremony of the Gods and Goddesses took place on the morning of the 24th and 25th. A spiritual discourse with Pujya Deepakbhai took place in the afternoon on the 24th, while a Self Realization ceremony was organized on the evening of the 25th. 3200 new people took part in the ceremony. Idols of Lord Simandhar Swami, Lord Krishna and Lord Shiva were sanctified on the morning of the 26th. Later in the afternoon there was puja and aarti of the idols. Approximately ten thousand people visited the temple during the entire day.
The Trimandir has been built with the intention that the living Lord Simandhar Swami’s presence spread throughout the entire world, thus providing permanent peace and happiness to all. This will open up the path for spiritual progress to all visitors so that they too can benefit and attain liberation. At night, everyone sang devotional songs to celebrate the joyous occasion in the presence of Pujya Deepakbhai.
There was also a short 15 minute show that played throughout the entire event, which was open to all. It highlighted the significance of a Non-Sectarian Trimandir.
On the morning of the 27th, Pujya Deepakbhai officially opened the Trimandir for darshan by performing the Dwar (door) opening Ceremony, followed by puja and aarti of all the Lords.
