Happy Birthday Pujyashree!!!

This time, the land of Surat, had the great fortune of hosting the 72nd Birthday of our most beloved Pujyashree!!!

Happy Birthday Pujyashree

Nevertheless, Pujyashree’s birthday celebrations began at Adalaj, with the followers from the rest of the world joining in online for the Kirtan-Bhakti, where each one prayed for a long and healthy life of Pujyashree. During the day, these prayers continued to pour in, in one form or another, from every corner on the digital platforms as well. The followers enthusiastically shared with each other the lovely creations of text messages, images and videos that revolved around Pujyashree’s life, highlighting His enchanting smile, His simple outlook in life as well as the blessings that Param Pujya Dada Bhagwan and Pujya Niruma have more than happily kept showering upon Him with seamless love and ceaseless affection!!!

At Surat, there was a special evening programme, organized in the auspicious presence of Pujyashree, for the benefit of everyone. A live relay also was arranged so that people from every corner of the world could join in too. Surat known for its food, the programme began with a Foodmela. People ate to their heart’s full and then assembled in the ground where Pujyashree was having His dinner. After dinner, Pujyashree was requested to come and cut the cake. As the followers sang, in chorus, the Happy Birthday song, Pujyashree climbed up the stage, bowed before Simandhar Swami, Param Pujya Dada Bhagwan and Pujya Niruma and took their special blessings!!! Amidst the audience’s applause, He cut the cake. Thereafter, He seeked blessings from the followers present on the ground there as well as those connected in the live relay of this programme.

Pujyashree's Birthday Celebration at Surat- Gujarat

Pujyashree was then garlanded with a long and lovely rose garland, after which the little kids ran upto Him and presented to their most beloved Pujyashree a very big and beautiful birthday card!! Thereafter, the followers together made a special heart-felt prayer to Goddess Amba, where they urged to the Goddess that may Pujya Deepakbhai be graced with a long life and uninterrupted good health.

Soon after this prayer, began an awesome drama that captured the entire audience’s hearts. This beautifully scripted and enacted play was based on the ‘Nav Kalam’ that depicted how ‘bhavana sudhare bhavobhav’

Finally, to conclude the celebration of this auspicious day, Pujyashree gave blessings to all the followers for progressing on the path of Salvation.


It was 19th March 2024 early morning! As the sun dawned, heard some music and a familiar song. And when taken from a sky view, streams of people were seen flowing through almost every lane in and around ATPL and Simandhar City, Trimandir Adalaj, Gujarat.

Yes, the occasion was Pujya Niruma’s 18th Punyatithi! 19th March commemorates the day when Pujya Niruma left behind the mortal body and advanced to a higher state, from where She continues Her Jagatkalyan work in full swing, even today. All Her life, Pujya Niruma guided people in the right direction so that they find peace while living their worldly life and at the same time, progress on the path of salvation as well. And eighteen years ago, on 19th March 2006, even while leaving, with Her last words ‘Prem thi Rehjo, Promise??’, She bound us all in a Promise, on fulfillment of which, our every purpose of life gets fulfilled with ease.

19th March – a reminder of our promise to Pujya Niruma

At the Dadanagar Convention Hall, soon after the Vidhi-Aarti by the followers was done, Pujyashree Deepakbhai arrived there and, in His special message, explained to the followers that when can we be said to have fulfilled the promise given to Pujya Niruma?

If someone insults us badly, and after two hours he happens to meet us again, then there is no feeling of separation (judaai) for the person who insulted us, our love towards that person remains the same. If someone gives us respect, we do not go overboard. If he comes to us after two hours, we do not have any attachment for him/her, our detached love towards that person is the same. So, one who gives us respect and one who gives us insult, when there’s equal love towards both of them, then he is said to have become Prem-swarup (Embodiment of Love). No matter how much loss one may have caused to us or how much gain one has caused to us, we have equal love towards both. Irrespective of how much hurt one may have caused to us; whenever s/he happens to meet, our love is the same.

‘Niruma’ – a saga of an ideal disciple exhibiting beautiful surrender and wonderful dedication

In the evening, a special video ‘Gnani ni Saachi Odakh’, greatly inspired everyone to the kind of recognition of the Gnani Purush Param Pujya Dada Bhagwan that Pujya Niruma had. Pujya Niruma surrendered to Dadashri as soon as she saw Him and remained so till the end of Her life. Dadashri had carved Her from a rough stone and shaped Her to a beautiful idol of God by chipping away Her ego and false pride with chisel and hammer. So, the stone did not move at all, and with param vinay (absolute humility), it took all the hammerings. And thus, Pujya Niruma reached the state of Gnani!

On this day, in the evening, there was a Bhakti programme, where Swarup kirtan bhakti was followed by the pad bhakti. The devotional songs, that were sung live by the followers, invoked the loving memories of Pujya Niruma in the hearts of the audience, expressed Her virtues of complete surrender, total faith, incredible dedication and absolute oneness and love towards Gnani and His salvation work, and also made everyone realize how Dadashri and only Dadashri resided in Her heart. Day and night, She was in the worship of Dadashri. It’s a rule that whomever you worship, you become so!!! Thus, Pujya Niruma, through Her exemplary life, has shown to the world how an ideal surrender towards Gnani is!

So come, let us also take the blessings of our most loved Niruma and pray to Her that may we be granted the best of the strength to live our life in complete surrender to Pratyaksh Gnani (current living Enlightened One)-an exceptional sculptor, who with His utter compassion and love, is ready to chip away all our ego, lust, false pride, attachments and greed and create an idol worthy to go to Moksha!

Pujyashree’s 54th Gnan Day

Saturday March 9, 2024

6th March 2024, is a special day, for on this day, 53 years ago, our beloved Pujyashree had attained Gnan!!! And ever since, His Gnan has flourished so much so that today, it is helping not one, not two, not hundreds, not thousands, but countless people in many ways in themselves attaining Gnan and bit by bit flourishing in that Gnan as well.

Pujyashree’s 54th Gnan Day began with the most sacred Kirtan Bhakti, done by all the followers of the teachings of Param Pujya Dada Bhagwan. In their heart, while wishing Pujyashree a very Happy Gnan Day, every followers prayed to Lord Shree Simandhar Swami, to Param Pujya Dada Bhagwan, Pujya Niruma and all the Dev-Devis, for Pujyashree’s long and healthy life, and they made a heart-felt wish to Gods that may the best salvation work happen through the medium of Pujyashree and may every living being on Earth happen to meet this pure and powerful medium and get their work of salvation done in His august presence!!!

Later, Pujyashree arrived at the Adalaj Trimandir and took blessings from Lord Simandhar Swami, the present Tirthankar, Param Pujya Dada Bhagwan, Pujya Niruma, and all the deities of Gods and Goddesses. The followers had queued up on the entire path to get His majestic Darshan.

In the evening, an awesome Bhakti programme was scheduled, where everyone who could make it, from Adalaj as well as the nearby and far-off places, had come to wish our beloved Pujyashree a Happy Gnan Day in person and take His blessings on this special day. When Pujyashree arrived, first and foremost, very humbly as always, He sought the blessings of all followers.

Later, Honorable Chief Minister of Gujarat, Shri Bhupendra Bhai Patel garlanded Pujyashree. The Bhakti program was very aptly designed with a mix of Pujya Niruma’s narration followed by a devotional song. Pujyashree sung one song apt to the occasion and had awe-inspiring lyrics, “Ahin aa sambhaaru ne poogi jaay temne, Parmatma jh che j, aapna sandesh ne.”

So, may this yet another Gnan Day of Pujyashree continue to create wonders in inspiring one and all of us to live a life full of Gnan and Love!

On Feb 18th, 2024, the auspicious Sanctification ceremony took place at the non-sectarian Trimandir in Bhavnagar, Gujarat, India, in the presence of Pujyashree and the subtle presence of Param Pujya Dada Bhagwan and Pujya Niruma. People flocked in, in huge numbers from various parts of the world, more so from different parts of Gujarat, to attend this event. For the locals, a Q&A Satsang and Gnan-Vidhi were arranged on Feb 16 and Feb 17 respectively.

On Feb 18th, 2024, Pujyashree arrived at the Bhavnagar Trimandir at 10am and performed the auspicious Bhaav Pratishtha of every deity installed in this temple. In the meanwhile, followers did prayers, with awareness, as advised by Pujyashree. Thereafter, Pujyashree came out of the temple and announced to the followers, who were anxiously waiting to hear from Him, that the wonderful Pran Pratishtha had happened. Whoever will step into the temple will now experience peace and happiness in life, and shall, in all probability, find the link to Gnan (Self-Realization) and Gnani (the Enlightened One) in this era of Kaliyug.

The three flags, one each from the shrines of Swami Simandhar, Shri Krishna Yogeshwar and Neelkanth Mahadev Shiv, were let loose and allowed to fly, with a pure intention in the heart, that touching this flag, wherever the wind goes, may everyone there be blessed enormously by the Gods, residing in this awesome Trimandir!

At 4.30 pm, it was time for the Pujan-Aarti of the Gods here! The session commenced on time with the Prakshal Pujan of the Lord Simandhar Swami, the present Living Tirthankar. Waters from almost every river in India, big and small, were collected in a pot, and with this jal, the Prakshal was done! After Prakshal, Pujyashree bowed down and took the Lord’s most precious blessings. Thereafter, He performed the Pujan and Aarti of Lord Simandhar Swami.

The Pujan of Lord Rishabhdev, Lord Ajitnath, Lord Parshvanath and Lord Mahavir; of Lord Padmanabh, the future Tirthankar; of Lord Shri Krishna and Lord Shiva; of Param Pujya Dada Bhagwan, who inspired this concept of the non-sectarian temple of Trimandir; of every idol of Gods-Goddesses, of Pujya Niruma; and last but not the least, of Sai Baba too, was done in the same manner, followed by various Aartis performed by Pujyashree, along with the followers.

One can well imagine how ecstatic the entire atmosphere in this Bhavnagar Trimandir was on this day, amidst Pujyashree’s purest Pran Pratishtha; amidst every ritual of Pujan and Aarti done, taking along the superlative bhaav of all followers; amidst most melodious devotional songs that were sung with great bhaav, matching the lyrics with the scene live at that moment; and the ultimate topmost jagat-kalyan bhaav ticking in every heart joint with this event.

In the evening, a beautiful Bhakti programme was arranged, wherein every devotional song sung was very heart-touching! A lot of Darshanarthi visited the temple to do the darshan of the enchanting idols, and here, they also got the darshan of Pujyashree, who was present in the programme. Also on this occasion, followers got the precious gift of getting to listen to their most loved devotional song, ‘Simandhar Swami na pratyaksh darshan thaajo amne’ in the voice of…. Guess who?? their most beloved Pujyashree!!!

The next day, the Door-opening ceremony of this new Trimandir was done, by the auspicious hands of Pujyashree, in the presence of esteemed followers, present in hundreds of numbers.

Param Pujya Dada Bhagwan's 116th Birthday was celebrated with great devotion and enthusiasm in Amreli this year. The event began on the November 22nd evening with a beautiful Shobha Yatra through the venue ground, where the followers had queued up in high spirits to welcome their beloved Pujyashree Deepakbhai in person and  Param Pujya Dada Bhagwan and Pujya Niruma in the subtle form.

The Honorable Chief Minister of Gujarat Shri Bhupendrabhai Patel was present on the occasion too, where he, alongside Pujyashree, lit the lamps and inaugurated the grand 5-day event of Param Pujya Dada Bhagwan Janma Jayanti. To start with, 116 little kids and youth presented an awesome cultural programme performance on the stage, which was quite quick and swift in connecting each and every person watching it. Soon following it, was a beautiful satsang of Pujyashree, whose words invoked bhakti of an altogether different level in the hearts of people towards Param Pujya Dada Bhagwan and inspired us all to come out of our faults. On the occasion, he also released a double bonanza for the progress of the followers on the path of salvation:

Gnanvani (in the voice of Param Pujya Dada Bhagwan) Part 42 and Part 43, and

  1. Two books on how to get rid of Vyasan (addiction) in life,
    a. 'Vyasan mukti no marg' for beginners and
    b. 'Vyasan mukti ni vaignyanik reet’ for the Self-realized followers, showing a scientific way to come out of any fault that is hindering their progress on the path of liberation.

Over the next two days too, there were Satsangs in the morning as well as evening for the followers, who obtained very useful guidance regarding their burning questions and few also shared their experiences. As always, the Satsangs did their beautiful bit in taking every follower one step ahead of where they stood. Our heart-felt obeisance to this most precious Gnani and the incredible Gnan!!!

On Nov 23rd evening, there was ‘Daayro’, performed by a follower Vimalbhai Mehta from Amreli, where he entertained the followers present in huge numbers, with a variety of things; the most heart-touching being an illustration of how Mother's love means everything to the child in his life, and the way ‘Niruma as a Mother’ has impacted each and every follower’s life through her 'Vatsalya' is even far more superior than any Mother’s love. Pujyashree here made a special remark that Niruma’s Vatsalya has not reduced after she’s gone from here, on the contrary, it has increased multifold, which every follower has experienced.

The next day evening, there was Garba organized, where a team of musicians and singers performed live for the the followers. As Pujyashree made an entry onto the stage, the jubilation of the followers soared to super heights. While their feet were dancing to the tunes of Dada's melodious pad bhakti, all the eyes were anxiously waiting to see Pujyashree arrive for the Garba.

The sprawling ground on which the Janma Jayanti celebration is taking place has in it an elaborate Theme park, comprising of video shows and activities that educate and enlighten people on various topics that are very useful in life and a nice cozy Kids Park too, where there’s lots the little stars could learn from. One of the shows ‘Siren’, alerting us regarding our false pride within, has been a super hit, and in the Children’s Park, the ‘Vikram and Betaal show’ is entertaining crowds while serving good lessons on humanity. So people pouring in, in large numbers, have lots to see and enjoy in this ‘Jova Jevi Duniya’!!

On the 25th of November was Gnan-vidhi, where 3500 spiritual seekers procured Gnan (Self-realization) and secured their path of liberation!!! And finally, the special day of Param Pujya Dada Bhagwan's Janma Jayanti had arrived. On 26th of morning, people gathered in large, very large numbers, from all over the country and the world, to participate in the Janma Jayanti celebrations and receive the special Drashti Darshan from Pujyashree along with His blessings to each one in order to come out of all weaknesses.

Thus, the JJ116 celebrations proved to be a very fruitful event in terms of spiritual progress each one could make.
