The Spiritual Revolutionist
Do you know who has illumined the whole world with the spiritual esoteric knowledge of the scriptures making it lucid and interesting? Who has satiated not only India but the whole world with his ambrosial utterances? Who has placed before the world the lofty ideal of selfless service along with that of satsang for the first time?
We know the only answer to these questions is going to be – ‘Self-reposed, well versed in scriptures, established in Brahman, master of Yoga, worthy of being remembered at the start of the day, Param Pujya Sant Sri Asaramji Bapu.’
Trying to eulogise the Self-realized all-pervading and perfected great Men like Pujya Bapuji is like showing a torch to the Sun. It is impossible to pen down pujyashree’s glory in words.
Like the Sun is the only source of light on the earth, ‘Brahma-nishtha’ great men, saints are the primary source of divine inspiration, goodwill and altruistic activities in the society. Flowers bloom at one place but their fragrance spreads all over, so also the whole world is redolent with the fragrance of pious virtues of saints. Pujya Bapuji’s Sadguru, Swami Sri Lilashahji Maharaj had once said to Pujya Bapuji, “Become fragrant like a rose…May the world recognize you.”
Pujya Bapuji’s family priest, Parashuram too had prophesied on seeing Pujya Bapuji’s brilliant face, “He will become a great saint and will emancipate the people.”
Swami Sri Lilashahji Maharaj’s blessing and family priest, Parashuram’s prophesy have come true. Today, Pujya Bapuji is spreading the fragrance of a full-bloomed rose. The hearts of crores of distressed people around the world are benefitting from this spiritual fragrance. The Knowledge of Vedic sages is being expressed through Pujyashree’s discourses. Pujya Bapuji, who empathises with all beings, who by his very nature, is distressed Himself at the pain and suffering of others, is guiding the humanity on the right path of life.
God-realized great men have no duties whatsoever to perform for they are established in the Supreme Being, beyond all bondages. Yet the activities that are spontaneously performed by them are immensely beneficial to the society. Param Pujya Bapuji, an embodiment of Self-realization, an icon of altruism, the supreme well-wisher of all beings, an accomplished master of Kundalini Yoga, is awakening, the feeling of well-being of all creatures and awareness for the Indian culture through his satsang discourses.
‘Being intent on the welfare of all beings’,
Pujya Bapuji says,
‘Smiling is My habit, cheerfulness is My nature and awakening you is My objective.’
Pujya Bapuji dispenses the blessing of a life that is healthy, happy, respectable and full of divine bliss. There is a rare blend of spontaneity, pleasantness and affection in His utterances, Each and every act of Pujya Bapuji reflects the feeling of -
‘The whole world is one family’.
Pujyashree’s message is -- all men should shun envy and malic and should live life with mutual love and affection and thus build an ideal society which shall put India on a pinnacle in the comity of nations (‘Vishwaguru’) in no time.
Trying to express ‘His’ greatness in words, Mahamandaleshwar Shri Paramatmanandji Maharaj Says: “In the form of the most honourable, deserving to be adorned with infinite titles, worthy of being remembered at the start of the day, an incarnation of the Era, the supreme Saint Shri Asaramji Maharaj, we have got back our Buddha; Tulsidas and Surdas are with us in His form; Paying reverence to Him is akin to paying homage to Kabirji and Mahatma Buddha…”
We find in Pujya Bapuji the dexterity of Lord Rama, the equanimity and ‘affection for the devotee’ of Lord Krishna, the yogic power of Swami Sri Lilashahji Maharaj and Jnaneshwarji Maharaj, the compassion of Buddha, the austerity of Mahavir Swami, the penchant for selfless service of Hanumanji, the steadfastness in Sadhna of Guru Nanak, the Vedantic ecstasy of Swami Ramatirtha, the rapturous devotional chanting of Chaitanya Mahaprabhu and the firm stance in Knowledge of Raman Maharishi- all rolled in one. The devotees are gratified by the overflowing ocean of such a divine combination. On the occasions of holy Kumbha festivals, Lakhs of people flock to listen to Pujya Bapuji’s satsang and get immersed in the depths of Knowledge and meditation. This is quite a spectacle and presents all the glory of the holy festival at one place.
Everyone feels close to Pujyashree. Heads of various organisations and politicians of different hues feel blessed seeking guidance from him. Pujya Bapuji has visited USA, Germany, Switzerland, Canada, England, Hong Kong, Singapore, Taiwan, Bangkok, Indonesia, Kenya, Nepal, Dubai and even Pakistan. And delivered his message of happiness, peace and mutual goodwill to people there.
Pujya Bapuji successfully represented India in the ‘Worlds Parliament of Religions’ held in September 1993 AD. While other orators were given 3 to 5 minutes time, people listened to Pujya Bapuji with rapt attention for 55 minutes on one occasion and 75 minutes on the other. In Bapuji’s satsang, one finds an excellent technique of blending the knowledge propounded by Rishis with modern life and producing a harmonious synthesis relevant to present-day society.
Pujyashree says, “Morality can not survive in the absence of spirituality and materialism inevitably brings sorrow and misery. If we can do no good, it is all right but we must eschew the evil tendencies. We can not achieve world-peace by proclaiming rather we should be engrossed in Self-Peace in order to achieve it. Your endeavours should be motivated by divine love not attachment, hatred, greed and delusion. Real progress and real joy is not possible without spirituality. Material progress may give elation and comforts, but it can never provide permanent happiness. Therefore give significance to spiritual progress so that progress of all kinds becomes possible.”
In His satsang discoursed, Pujya Bapuji leads people to laughter coupled with progressively faster chanting of the seed-mantra ॐ, which produces energy upto 70,000 Bovis. This exercise eradicates thought-pollution on one hand and helps the devotees to achieve faster progress in spiritual sphere on the other.
In Pujya Bapuji’s satsang we find a marvellous blend of the depth of Meditation Yoga, the joy of Bhakti Yoga and the Knowledge of the Ultimate Truth of Jnan Yoga. In addition to that, Karma Yoga finds a perfect expression in His life. The Society is being benefited today by a number of altruisitic activities being carried out under Bapuji’s auspices. Pipal or Banyan trees sanctified by Him with divine Power are found in most of the Ashram. People not only get peace and happiness by circumambulating them, they also get their wishes granted.
The Diksha given by Him in Vedic mantras brings total transformation in the lives of Sadhakas. They make all round progress in life – physical, mental and spiritual. Various benefits of Mantra-diksha are clearly visible disciple’s lives. It is impossible to state all the benefits accruing from Mantra-diksha. Letters expressing feelings of gratitude sent special issue. They are worth reading.
