“Enlightened beings never die, if they feel that they will not be able to carry on the work of world salvation through this body, they continue it uninterruptedly through another body”
One such enlightened being was A.M Patel (Ambalal Muljibhai Patel), lovingly known as Param Pujya Dada Bhagwan who departed His mortal body on 2 January 1988. He attained spontaneous Self Realization in June 1958 and had the spiritual powers to enlighten others as well. Param Pujya Dadashri introduced Akram Vignan, a stepless spiritual science which enabled people to live a happy and peaceful worldly life.
Many people used to ask Param Pujya Dadashri as to why He allowed himself to be addressed as Dada Bhagwan. He would clarify that He is not God Himself. He too bows down to the Lord, who is fully manifested within Him, referred to as Dada Bhagwan. He would explain to everyone He met, “This Lord, Dada Bhagwan also resides within all living beings. The difference is that within Me, He is completely expressed and in you, he has yet to manifest.”
All of us have always known ourselves to be our name. But, Param Pujya Dadashri gave us the divine vision of who we really are. What our true Self is like. Through the process of Self Realization, we can know and be in our own true Self, the Soul and experience eternal bliss and happiness forever.
Gnani is the bearer of eternal Knowledge. He is omnipresent and omnipotent. He is beyond the clutches of death. Param Pujya Dadashri had said, “I am personally going to impart siddhis (special spiritual powers) to a few people. After I leave, will there not be a need for them? People of future generations will need this path, will they not?”
Param Pujya Dadashri graced Pujya Niruma and Pujya Deepakbhai with His divine energies to conduct spiritual discourses and Self Realization ceremonies. His subtle presence is still felt across the globe.
Let us not miss this opportunity to be graced with Self Realization and experience the subtle blessings of Param Pujya Dadashri.
