Param Pujya Dada Bhagwan, the Gnani (Enlightened Being) said the following of Pujya Niruma:
‘She [Pujya Niruma] is going to be a major instrument for the salvation of the world.’
Since her childhood, Pujya Niruma had only one goal in her mind: to serve humanity without personal gain. During her youth, Pujya Niruma studied in the field of medicine and was in the final year of her studies when she met Param Pujya Dada Bhagwan and was exposed to the spiritual science known as Akram Vignan.
After meeting the Param Pujya Dadashri in the year of 1968 and attaining Self Realization, she immediately experienced separation from her body. She felt as if she had known Param Pujya Dadashri in her past lives. From that point on, at the mere age of twenty-three, Pujya Niruma’s goal altered from becoming a doctor to the salvation of the world. She thought, ‘As a medical doctor, I can only alleviate physical ailments. However, if I were to serve the Gnani and His mission of Akram Vignan then I can help so many people who are suffering from mental, emotional, and worldly ‘ailments’.’
She travelled around the world helping Param Pujya Dada Bhagwan spread the spiritual science. It was their express intention to liberate people from worldly suffering and misery and to instil peace and happiness into the life of many. Simaltaneously, she continued learning more about Akram Vignan from Param Pujya Dadashri and becoming the embodiment of love, compassion and experiencing eternal enlightenment.
Following the departure of Param Pujya Dada Bhagwan, Pujya Niruma continued to fulfil every wish of His. From the first ever construction of Simandhar City (a residential place for the followers to stay together), a non-sectarian temple uniting the three major religions in India, to the grooming and nurturing of a hundred celibate men and women for the dedication to the mission of world salvation.
The love that she spread to everyone around her was incomparable! Everyone felt that she was their mother. She loved unconditionally; never expecting anything in return. Anyone who was privileged to have met her used to leave with the feeling of being special, cared for and blessed.
Pujya Niruma’s service to the world was with unwavering devotion, dedication, commitment and the highest sincerity. The mission of Akram Vignan did not even stop when her health was extremely poor. Nothing could deter her unflinching determination to fulfil her promise given to Param Pujya Dada Bhagwan for the salvation of the world. Every atom of her body was meant for spending for the liberation of all beings.
Spreading the message of Param Pujya Dada Bhagwan’s spiritual science through various means brought inevitable fame to her, but she maintained absolute purity taking no credit and or self-praise for herself. She would always give all the credit to Param Pujya Dada Bhagwan’s grace and power. Even today, twelve years since she left her mortal body, Pujya Niruma touches and lives in the heart of many new or old seekers.

6th March is an auspicious and joyous day for all. It is on this very day, in 1971, when our beloved Pujya Deepakbhai, received Gnan (knowledge of the Self) from Param Pujya Dada Bhagwan. He was only 17 years old at that time. Upon the attainment of Self Realization, his internal peace increased.
Material life did not attract him even before he received this knowledge and after he received it, he decided that he wanted to utilise his mind, speech and body for the sole purpose of the salvation of the world. However, Puyja Deepakbhai had to fulfil his worldly obligations. His father wanted him to continue with his studies, secure a good job and eventually settle down and get married.
There was a great deal of pressure from his father. Pujya Deepakbhai resolved to manage the relationship with his father with absolute humility, through the divine vision by only seeing his pure Soul and crucially perceiving his father as completely faultless. Throughout this difficult period, Pujya Deepakbhai never blamed his father but always maintained that the fault was his own. He performed penance, he never opposed his father, and he never clashed with him and never answered back once.
Pujya Deepakbhai served and looked after his parents in the best possible way to the very end of their lives. His father had said, ‘This path Akram Vignan (Spiritual Science) that you are following is of an extremely high level and it is beneficial for my liberation and in my worldly life’.
All who meet him, witness Pujya Deepakbhai’s exemplary conduct even today. His virtues are those of a Gnani Purush, an enlightened being. Their divine vision is focused on the Pure Soul within everyone; they are humble, compassionate and they communicate with all beings with absolute purity, humility and unconditional love. This state of theirs does not alter.
Thus, the celebration of the 47th anniversary of Pujya Deepakbhai’s Gnan Day is a day for all. Pujya Deepakbhai has not for a single moment given any thought to his own personal needs or wishes but has instead devoted his life with the utmost sincerity in being an instrument for the salvation of the world. For him, every atom dwells in only one inner intent: that everyone achieves happiness and peace through the attainment of the knowledge of the Self.
So, let us all join our hands and pray heartily to Lord Shree Simandhar Swami and Param Pujya Dada Bhagwan to continue to bestow their auspicious blessings upon him thus enabling him to carry on being an instrument in fulfilling the mission for the salvation of the world.

Holi is the festival of colors. It is the triumph of good over evil. It marks the arrival of spring and a festive occasion to meet with friends and family, laugh and enjoy. Hindus believe it to be a time of enjoying spring's abundant colors and saying farewell to winter. Holi festivities mark the beginning of the New Year for some, as well as an occasion to reset and renew ruptured relationships, end conflicts and rid us of accumulated emotional impurities from the past.
On the white canvas of our lives, we end up unknowingly leaving big black spots. These black spots are; the grudges we hold on to, the scars on our ego, the times we get angry, when our pride is hurt, the times when we use deceit as a tool to get what we want and our greed. Sadly, they only get more obvious as the painting evolves, unless we choose to paint them over or erase them. But how is this possible?
Using the powerful tool of pratikraman (asking for forgiveness). Pratikraman is a way to wash out all these black spots. Param Pujya Dada Bhagwan says that, “Things come into your memory even when you don’t want them to; that is because ‘pratikraman dosh’ is pending (mistake for which pratikraman was not done yet)”. These past karmas are like big black spots and they need to be washed out by doing pratikraman heartily.
Would it not be nice if these spots could be painted brilliantly once again? So on such a beautiful and colourful occasion, come let us wash out all the black spots and scars from our life and paint it once again with the colours of forgiveness, joy and eternal happiness!!
