पूज्य बापूजी की कल्याणकारी अमृतवाणी

परमात्मा कैसा है ? आत्मा का स्वरूप क्या है ? कोई कहता है कि भगवान तो मोरमुकुटधारी हैं । कोई कहता है कि भगवान तो मर्यादापुरुषोत्तम हैं । कोई कहता है कि भगवान सर्वगुणसंपन्न हैं । कोई कहता है कि भगवान सर्वशक्तिमान् हैं । कोई कहता है कि भगवान सर्वत्र हैं । कोई कहता है कि वे वैकुण्ठ, कैलास आदि में हैं । कोई कहता है कि भगवान हमारे हृदय में बैठे हैं । कोई कहता है कि कण-कण में भगवान हैं । कोई कहता है कि नहीं… यह सब माया का पसारा है । भगवान तो निर्गुण- निराकार हैं ।

कोई कहता है : ‘‘नहीं… निर्गुण-निराकार तुम्हारी दृष्टि में होगा । हम तो साकार भगवान को पूजते हैं । मुरलीमनोहर, मोरमुकुट एवं पीतांबरधारी जो हैं, वे ही हमारे भगवान हैं । उनको हम सुबह बालभोग, दोपहर को राजभोग एवं शाम को भी भोग लगाकर ही खाते हैं । हमारे भगवान के दर्शन करने हों तो चलो, हम तुम्हें करवाते हैं ।’’
पूछो : ‘‘कहाँ हैं भगवान ?’’
कहेंगे : ‘‘चलो हमारे साथ ।’’
ले जायेंगे पूजा के कमरे में । हटायेंगे पर्दा और कहेंगे : ‘‘ये हैं हमारे भगवान ।’’
इस प्रकार कोई कहता है कि भगवान स्थान-विशेष में हैं तो कोई कहता है वे सर्वत्र हैं । कोई कहता है वे सर्वगुणसंपन्न हैं तो कोई कहता है गुणातीत हैं । कोई कहता है वे साकार हैं तो कोई कहता है निराकार हैं । अब हम भगवान श्रीकृष्ण के पास चलते हैं और देखते हैं कि वे क्या कहते हैं । भगवान श्रीकृष्ण अर्जुन से कहते हैं :
आश्चर्यवत्पश्यति कश्चिदेन-माश्चर्यवद्वदति तथैव चान्यः ।
आश्चर्यवच्चैनमन्यः शृणोतिश्रुत्वाप्येनं वेद न चैव कश्चित् ॥

‘कोई एक महापुरुष ही इस आत्मा को आश्चर्य की भाँति देखता है और वैसे ही दूसरा कोई महापुरुष ही (इसके तत्त्व का) आश्चर्य की भाँति वर्णन करता है तथा दूसरा कोई (अधिकारी पुरुष) ही इस आत्मा को आश्चर्य की तरह सुनता है और कोई-कोई तो सुनकर भी इसको (आत्मा को) नहीं जानता ।’ (गीता : 2.29)

कोई व्यक्ति भगवान को आश्चर्य की भाँति देखता है कि : ‘‘आहाहा… हमने भगवान की छवि देखी ! आज रात को मुझे ऐसा स्वप्न आया था कि ‘मोरमुकुटधारी भगवान मेरे सामने प्रकट हुए हैं और वे मुझसे पूछ रहे हैं कि, ‘क्या हाल है ?’ …और मैं कह रहा हूँ कि, ‘भगवन् ! आपकी कृपा है ।’ फिर उन्होंने बड़े प्रेम से मेरे सिर पर हाथ फेरा जिससे मैं तो गद्गद् हो गया !’’

‘कोई व्यक्ति भगवान को, आत्मा को आश्चर्य की भाँति देखता है…’ इसका एक अर्थ ऐसा भी हो सकता है कि जैसे संसार की दूसरी चीजें देखने, सुनने, पढ़ने और जानने में आती हैं वैसे इस परमात्मा को नहीं जाना जा सकता, क्योंकि अन्य वस्तुएँ तो देह-इन्द्रिय-बुद्धि के द्वारा जानी जाती हैं जबकि परमात्मा को तो स्वयं अपने-आपसे ही जाना जाता है । इसीलिए कहा गया है :
आश्चर्यवत्पश्यति कश्चिदेनम्…
कोई इसको आश्चर्य की तरह कहता है – आश्चर्यवद्वदति तथैव चान्यः… क्योंकि यह परमात्मतत्त्व वाणी का विषय नहीं है । जिससे वाणी प्रस्फुटित होती है, वाणी उसका वर्णन कैसे कर सकती है ? फिर भी भगवान के गुण-कर्म, लीला-स्वभाव आदि का वर्णन करके महापुरुष लोग वाणी से उनकी ओर केवल संकेत ही करते हैं ताकि सुननेवाले का लक्ष्य उधर हो जाये ।
आश्चर्यवच्चैनमन्यः शृणोति…
कोई इस आत्मा को आश्चर्य की तरह सुनता है क्योंकि दूसरा जो कुछ भी सुनने में आता है वह सब इन्द्रियाँ, मन एवं बुद्धि का विषय होता है किन्तु परमात्मा न इन्द्रियों का विषय है, न मन का और न बुद्धि का, वरन् वह तो इन्द्रियादि सहित उनके विषयों को भी प्रकाशित करनेवाला है । इसलिये आत्मा (परमात्मा) संबंधी विलक्षण बात को वह आश्चर्य की तरह सुनता है ।
श्रुत्वाप्येनं वेद न चैव कश्चित् ।
‘सुनकर भी इसको कोई नहीं जानता ।’

इसका तात्पर्य यह कि केवल सुनकर इसको कोई भी नहीं जान सकता वरन् सुनने के बाद जब वह स्वयं उसमें स्थित होगा, तब वह अपने-आपसे ही अपने-आपको जानेगा ।

श्रुतियाँ अनेक हैं, स्मृतियाँ अनेक हैं, पुराण भी अठारह हैं । इनमें जो जैसा पाता है, भगवान को ठीक वैसा-वैसा मानता है । हकीकत में अति विस्मयकारक बात और तथ्य यह है कि पशु से लेकर परम सूक्ष्म जीवाणुओं में भी वही आत्मा सूक्ष्म रूप से स्थित है । कोई उसे छोटा कहता है तो भी ठीक है और कोई उसे बड़ा कहता है तो भी ठीक है… कोई परमात्मा को सगुण-साकार कहता है तो भी ठीक है और कोई निर्गुण-निराकार कहता है तो भी ठीक है । येन-केन-प्रकारेण वह अपनी बुद्धि को भगवान में तो लगा रहा है… इस बात से हमें आनंद है । बस, हमारा यही एकमात्र कर्त्तव्य है कि हम अपनी बुद्धि को परमात्मा में प्रतिष्ठित करें ।

इस युग में अधिकांश लोग विषयपरायण हो चले हैं । विषय-भोगों में वे इतने लिप्त हो गये हैं कि जिसकी हम कल्पना भी नहीं कर सकते । उस परमात्मा के विषय में जानना तो दूर, विचार तक नहीं करते । वह आत्म-परमात्मतत्त्व इतना सूक्ष्म से भी सूक्ष्म है और महान् से भी महान् है कि हम उसकी कल्पना तक नहीं कर सकते । कीड़ी के पग नेवर बाजे सो वह भी साहिब सुनत हैं… इतना वह सूक्ष्म है । हमारे बोलने-चालने एवं हिलने-डुलने से कितने ही जीवाणु मर जाते हैं । वैज्ञानिक लोगों का कहना है कि जब हम बोलते हैं तब असंख्य जीवाणु मर जाते हैं । इस हाथ को उठाने एवं नीचे लाने में भी न जाने कितने ही सूक्ष्म-से-सूक्ष्म जीवाणु मर जाते होंगे ! क्षण-क्षण में लाखों-करोड़ों जीवाणु उत्पन्न होते एवं मरते रहते हैं । इस शरीर में भी असंख्य बैक्टीरिया उत्पन्न होते एवं मरते रहते हैं जो कि ‘माइक्रोस्कोप’ (सूक्ष्मदर्शी यंत्र) से देखने में आते हैं । इतने वे सूक्ष्म हैं ! जब वे जीवाणु इतने सूक्ष्म हैं तो उनका हृदय कितना सूक्ष्म होगा और उस हृदय में बैठा हुआ भगवान कितना सूक्ष्म होगा, कितना छोटा होगा ! बाल के अग्रभाग के एक लाख हिस्से करो । उसमें से एक हिस्से पर भी हजार बैक्टीरिया (जीवाणु) बैठे होते हैं और उनमें भी भगवान की चैतन्यता मौजूद होती है । आप सोचिये कि भगवान कितने समर्थ और व्यापक हैं ! किन्तु हम अल्पज्ञ हो गये हैं, उच्छृंखल हो गये हैं इसीलिये आत्ममहिमा से दूर हैं ।

एक फकीर ने कहा है :
अल्ला रे अल्ला ! क्या फ़ैज़ है मेरे साकी का !
अपने हिस्से की भी वे मुझे पिलाए जाते हैं ॥

अर्थात् भगवान कैसे हैं ? शांति के महासागर… आनंद के महास्रोत… वे अपने हिस्से की शांति, आनंद, माधुर्य आदि का हमें अनुभव करवा रहे हैं फिर भी हम उन्हें दूर मानते हैं । हम उन्हें किसी अवस्था-विशेष अथवा स्थान-विशेष में मानते हैं जो हमारी बड़ी भारी भूल है, गलती है । इससे हमारी श्रद्धा और विश्वास डावाँडोल हो जाते हैं, चित्त में संशय हो जाता है और संशयात्मा विनश्यति ।

जहाँ संशय होता है वहाँ विनाश हुआ समझो । भगवान को जब-जब केवल आकाश-पाताल में मानेंगे, किसी मंदिर-मस्जिद-गिरिजाघर-गुरुद्वारे में मानेंगे या किसी अवस्था-विशेष अथवा स्थान-विशेष में मानेंगे, जैसे कि ‘फलानी जगह जायेंगे तब भगवान मिलेंगे… फलानी अवस्था आयेगी तब भगवान मिलेंगे… ऐसा-ऐसा करेंगे तब भगवान मिलेंगे…’ तब-तब भगवान दूर हो जायेंगे । हैं तो भगवान निकट से भी निकट, लेकिन दूर मानने से दूर हो गये और जिसने भगवान को निकट समझा, अपने हृदय में स्थित समझा उसके भीतर भगवान ने शांतिरूप से, आनंदरूप से, और भी पता नहीं किस-किस रूप से, जिसका वर्णन नहीं हो सकता ऐसे अवर्णनीय ढंग से अपने अस्तित्व का एहसास कराया, अनुभूति करायी और अपना प्रकाश फैलाया ।

भगवान को न तो किसी अवस्था-विशेष में मानना है और न ही किसी स्थल-विशेष में मानना है । वह तो सर्वत्र है, सदा है और सबके पास है । वह सबका अपना-आपा होकर बैठा है ।
कोई जिज्ञासु यहाँ प्रश्न उठा सकता है कि : ‘जब भगवान सर्वत्र है, सदा है, हमारे ही भीतर है तो फिर संतों के पास, सद्गुरु के पास जाने की क्या जरूरत ? सत्संग सुनने की क्या जरूरत ?’
जैसे, यहाँ आपके व मेरे पास रेडियो एवं टेलिविजन की तरंगें हैं, फिर भी हमें सुनाई-दिखाई नहीं देतीं । क्यों ? क्योंकि इस समय यहाँ पर रेडियो या टेलिविजन नहीं है, रेडियो का एरियल नहीं है, टी.वी. की ‘एन्टीना’ नहीं है । हमारे पास ये साधन-सामग्रियाँ होंगी तभी हम रेडियो भी सुन पायेंगे और टी.वी. भी देख पायेंगे । ठीक इसी प्रकार भगवान सर्वत्र हैं । रेडियो और टी.वी. की तरंगें जितनी व्यापक होती हैं उससे भी कहीं ज्यादा व्यापक भगवान की सत्ता है लेकिन उसकी अनुभूति, उसका लाभ संतों-सद्गुरुओं की कृपा से ही मिलता है क्योंकि संतों के हृदय में ही भगवान ने अपना प्रादुर्भाव कर रखा है ।

संतों ने अपने हृदय में ‘एन्टीना’ लगा रखा है । इस एन्टीना से उन्हें भगवान के दर्शन हुए हैं और उसकी महिमा का वे वर्णन भी कर सकते हैं । इसीलिए हम संतों के सान्निध्य की अपेक्षा रखते हैं । जैसे, इस पृथ्वी के वायुमंडल में रेडियो और टी.वी. की तरंगों के सर्वत्र व्याप्त होने पर भी बिना टी.वी. व रेडियो के उन्हें देखना और सुनना कठिन है, ठीक इसी प्रकार भगवान की सर्वव्यापकता होने के बावजूद भी उनके आनंद, उनकी शांति, उनके माधुर्य का अनुभव बिना सद्गुरु व सत्संग के करना कठिन है । यह अनुभव तो केवल संतों के सान्निध्य एवं सत्संग से ही प्राप्त किया जा सकता है ।

ठीक ही कहा है :
कर नसीबांवाले सत्संग दो घड़ियाँ…

अहंकारी, मनमुख और दूसरों के यशो-तेज से उद्विग्न निंदकों के लिए नानकजी ने कहा है :

संत कै दूखनि आरजा घटै ।
संत कै दूखनि जम ते नहीं छुटै ॥
संत कै दूखनि सुखु सभु जाइ ।
संत कै दूखनि नरक मांहि पाइ ॥
संत कै दूखनि मति होइ मलीन ।
संत कै दूखनि सोभा ते हीन ॥
संत के हते कउ रखै न कोई ।
संत कै दूखनि थान भ्रसटु होई ॥
संत कृपाल कृपा जे करैं ।
‘नानक’ संत संगि निंदकु भी तरै ॥

निंदकों की बातों में न आनेवाले सत्संगी तो फायदा उठाते हैं । दृढ़निश्चयी पुण्यात्मा शिष्यों-साधकों-भक्तों के लिए मानों नानकजी कह रहे हैं:

साध कै संगि मुख ऊजल होत ॥
साध संगि मलु सगली खोत ॥
साध कै संगि मिटै अभिमानु ॥
साध कै संगि प्रगटै सु गिआनु ॥
साध कै संगि बुझै प्रभु नेरा ।
साध कै संगि पाए नाम रतनु ।
साध कै संगि एक ऊपरि जतनु ॥
साध की महिमा बरनै कउनु प्रानी ।
नानक ! साध की सोभा प्रभ माहि समानी ॥

A Well-planned Conspiracy to Defame Pujya Bapuji

Standard

Revered Sant Shri Asharamji Bapu, who has been spreading the glory and importance of ‘continence-sadhana-satsang’ among the masses for the last 50 years and inspiring the youths all over the world for the last 8 years with the most salubrious idea to celebrate 14th February as ‘Matri-Pitri-Pujan-Diwas’, i.e. ‘Parents’ Worship Day’ instead of ‘Valentine’s Day’ that destroys their vital fluid and energy, is Himself a well recognized icon of self-restraint, affection, celibacy, Self-knowledge and true public welfare. But the anti-Hindu forces, who work against Indian culture and multinational companies, who lose a big profit due to ethical and cultural progress of Indians, have been hatching conspiracies and paying millions of rupees to the media to defame Pujyashree from time to time under one pretext or the other. Under a similar well devised conspiracy they used a UP girl as the pawn to level a false allegation of molestation, and spread the malicious propaganda that He has been accused of rape. They have brutally hurt the religious feelings of millions of Indians by making a larger section of the media to malign the image of Bapuji through completely false, baseless and denigrating news-stories.

How the Heinous Conspiracy was Launched?

A girl resident of UP, studying in MP, allegedly molested at Jodhpur (Rajasthan), lodges an FIR. Do you know where? At the Kamala Market police station in Delhi, and that too after the passage of 5 long days at 2:45 a.m.! The FIR launched by the girl doesn’t have any direct or indirect mention of ‘Rape’ in it. But by using the media they spread the fictitious news that it was a case of ‘Rape’ and that the ‘medical test’ has vindicated it. The medical test report of the girl has completely ruled out the case of a rape; and yet, the non-bailable article of 376 concerning rape was imposed on Bapuji, which is nothing other than a well devised conspiracy to defame Him. For this, the Rajasthan police has officially admonished the Delhi police. Moreover, the Jodhpur DCP, Mr. Ajay Lamba has explicitly accepted that Delhi police has registered the case in a wrong manner.
On 27th August Pujyashree was at the Indore Ashram. There the police served Him with an official ‘summon’ to report at Jodhpur by the 30th August. Then and there Bapuji had appealed seeking more time for the same citing some important causes, and the messenger too had affixed his signature upon the concerned application accepting the onus of expediting the same to the concerned higher authority. On 26th August, according to the pre-scheduled programme, Pujya Bapuji was at the Surat ashram for the Janmashtami Celebrations.

Arrived at Bhopal for the last rites of His Karmayogi Disciple

Shri Dev Krishnaniji, the Service Officer of several ashrams in MP, a service oriented sadhaka, a Senior Officer at the Bhopal ashram and the father-in-law of Shri Narayan Sai, could not bear this heinous conspiracy. He was deeply shocked to know – that the girls of Chhindwara Gurukul were being mentally pressurized by the Rajasthan police to give statements according to their demand, as well as by the most disgusting conspiracy hatched by the perpetrators to get Pujya Bapuji arrested. His religious sentiments were so badly hurt that he went on a complete fast shunning both food and water. He apprised the Bhopal collector of his mental agony through an official application. However, failing to get any immediate remedy from there, he couldn’t withstand the anguish and succumbed to a subsequent heart-attack. The perpetrators, who invented false and imaginary stories did take away the life of this supremely devoted service oriented Sewa-yogi, who had been on a fast for the last two days. He left his physical body in the early hours of 29th August at 3:20 a.m. He was perfectly alright before the launch of the smear campaign. Sadhakas all over the nation have expressed their heartfelt grief for the same. They have made a vociferous appeal that no such misleading news be spread ever again without first getting the same confirmed by the ground realities; so that they don’t have to lose such sadhakas dedicated to the service of the nation any more.

On coming to know the sudden demise of Shri Dev Krishnaniji, Pujya Bapuji left His programme of Janmashtami celebrations at Surat ashram midway and proceeded for the Bhopal ashram to participate in his last rites. The departed soul had only daughters; hence the bier was carried by Bapuji, other relatives and sadhakas.

A Heinous Plot to Get Pujya Bapuji Arrested

The Rajasthan police had been informed to extend the time limit for the arrest. On getting no response from their end, Bapuji had got a seat booked in the Jet Airways on 30th Aug. But on account of an unbearable pain attack of Trigeminal Neuralgia (‘Ananta Vata’, according to the Ayurveda) the ticket had to be cancelled. Here it is worth noting that this pain is worse than the labour-pain and even that experienced during a heart-attack. Even a little negligence can be perilous for the patient. It has been described as the most painful condition on some websites. Then, in the evening; Pujya Bapuji arrived at the Bhopal airport on His way to Jodhpur via Delhi; however, an extraordinary rush of people and media forced the boarding counter to be closed. We have got those tickets with us to prove this fact.

Despite all the exertion, night vigil and the stress Bapuji undertook a journey by road to His own ashram at Indore. Thus, He didn’t flee away to any unknown place as was maliciously propagated by the media. The MP police had reached the ashram by around 6 a.m. and hundreds of policemen had literally besieged Bapuji’s residence. By mid-day a huge crowd of devotees had gathered at the ashram. Addressing from the Vyasa peetha of the Indore ashram at the night of 31st; Pujyashree publicly declared to the 167 nations connected through the internet live: “I am waiting for the Jodhpur police, and they are very much welcome here. On account of the unbearable pain, I couldn’t go; and that nagging pain is still troubling me.”
Pujyashree’s blood-pressure was 160/120. He felt chest-pain along with a kind of heaviness in the heart. The Ayurvedic physicians requested the police to allow them to get Bapuji treated by some Allopathic doctor. Then a doctor was called in.
Jodhpur police arrived at the ashram. Bapuji said to them, “You do not worry. I am not going to run away. I promise you to give complete cooperation.”

The police said that they would take Bapuji by the morning flight at 7:45 to Delhi and from there to Jodhpur through a connecting flight. Pujyashree gave His consent.

They used force and deceit to Arrest Him

At 10:30 p.m. Bapuji went into His room for rest. Then around 11:00 p.m. the police began to move all around the ashram making the devotees stand up from their places, where they were engaged in doing japa peacefully and holy recitation. The police spoke insulting words to the devotees and thrashed them to vacate the roads in the ashram. Then they made the devotees sit in a confined place and erected barricades all around them. At that time there were more than 800 police personnel inside the ashram. By 12:00 at mid night there prevailed an atmosphere of commotion. Right at 12:00 at mid night a police-jeep entered the ashram. The police then told the ashram sevaks, “We have to interview Bapuji for about 10 to 15 minutes. Please, call Him out.”

The sevaks requested them with folded hands: “Sir, He is very tired and currently taking rest. Whatever you need to ask, please do it in the morning.”

The police began to press for the compliance of their diktat. When they started shouting loudly, Bapuji came out of His room. The police then said, “It’s already past 12:00 in the night; so the time limit of the ‘summon’ sent to you for compliance within four days has just elapsed. Now, we shall take you from here.” 

The sevaks countered, “Sir, you yourself had told that you will take Him by the morning flight allowing Him to take rest during the night. Now, why are you insisting on taking Him at midnight?”
The police began to shout, “Are we here to obey your orders? Time is over, now we will take Him away.”

At this, Gurudev proceeded to board the police jeep; while asking a servant to give His ‘aasana’. But the police misbehaved again saying, “There is no need of such things, just go and be seated in the jeep.”
The personal sevak of Bapuji moved fast to put the bag and water bottle inside the vehicle, but the police didn’t allow him. Police sat on both sides of Bapuji and also on the front and back of Him. The jeep went out of Bapuji’s residence, while the other police personnel began to beat the sevaks present there. The devotees ran after the vehicle that carried Bapuji away. The police continued with their lathi-charge, as the vehicle whizzed past the ashram gate. Despite having told that they would take away Bapuji in the morning only, the police took Him to the airport at 12:20 in the mid-night itself, as if following the Martial Law. And that is not all. At the airport they kept Him seated until the morning. Even when He boarded the plane; the media persons kept pestering Him.

From Delhi they took Bapuji to Jodhpur by a connecting flight. Hardly had he alighted from the flight, when the legal probing began. As if this all was too little for their satisfaction, they kept their judicial probe on till 12:30 in the night. This was second night in a row that He couldn’t sleep even for a moment. During the legal enquiry regarding ‘sexual harassment’ Bapuji said, “I cannot indulge in such acts.”
Pujya Bapuji was put under surveillance by the police. Video cameras were fixed. Only one sevak was allowed with Him. Suddenly the sevak noticed inflammation on the right temple of Bapuji. On enquiry, he came to know that it was extremely painful too. Passing sleepless nights had its toll on Him, and the pain attack of Trigeminal Neuralgia was worsening. “Shirodhara” (the continuous flow of warm oil or medicated liquid herb over forehead) was the only treatment that could be used in the police custody of Jodhpur. On seeing the serious condition the Jodhpur police relented and stopped their mind-pestering enquiry to allow immediate treatment. Even MRI brain scan cannot identify all causes of this disease. This is described as the worst pain on many websites. Therefore, it is called ‘Suicide disease’. Bapuji has been suffering from this nightmarish disease for the last 13 years; and more than 100 treatment reports of Bapuji can be obtained from Neeta Vaidya. Whither Humanity? We only pray to God that the inhuman treatment meted out to Bapuji may not be repeated with anybody else again.
“You have not arrested Me yet.”

The sevak saw Bapuji strolling in that small room itself wearing His red cap and white dhoti, while also singing a devotional song meaning – “O my dear heart, keep cheerful always… and bear every unpleasant condition that comes with aplomb”. He was telling words of satsang to the police. After all, giving satsang is a part and parcel of His daily routine! 
He would occasionally tell pointers on Self-Knowledge to the police as well even during the interrogation. Once, a policeman happened to ask Him, “Bapuji! You used to claim that the police can never arrest you.”
Bapuji retorted, “It is true. You have not arrested Me yet”.
Nobody Can Destroy the Hindu Dharma
The sevak said, “O Gurudev! Please do not let our trust in the saying ‘Truth alone triumphs’ be lost.”
Bapuji: “That is the fact. History stands witness to that.”
Sevak: “O Gurudev! I cannot just bear all this. The devotees are deeply shocked, and have staged protest marches on the roads.”
Bapuji: “Let them do japa of the Divine Name.”
Sevak: “O Gurudev! If they will continue such conspiracies and imprison the top saints of Hinduism with false charges and propaganda; the entire saints’ community would be eliminated systematically. They will root out the Hinduism.”
Pujyashree (eyes closed, tranquil countenance): “No one can destroy Hindu Dharma.”
The very next moment the police ordered the sevaks to leave the room. They immediately left the room after paying obeisance to Gurudev.
The sevaks observed that Pujyashree would suggest measures in the room to every visiting policeman for his health problems. Sometimes His humorous nature would get the better of Him and He would crack jokes at them as well. He would complete His daily routine of walking in the morning and in the evening in His room itself.
Thereafter, He was taken to the court around 4:00 to 4:30 p.m. Within less than 5 minutes the hearing was over, and the verdict was – ‘Take him into judicial custody’. Pujyashree was taken to the Jodhpur Central Jail.

It is known only to God and Bapuji Himself as to how many troubles had he suffered in that mosquito-infested jail with no good treatment to His nagging disease available therein. Notwithstanding the false stories of Bapuji being provided with a bed, a cooler, etc. in the jail being hyped by the media, there was nothing available as such. No extra facilities at all! This has been corroborated by the Jail Superintendent himself.
The sensational news, wherein the concerned girl was time and again mentioned as ‘the victim’, actually victimized millions of women. Hurt by the arrest of Bapuji with false charges, millions of mothers and sisters have been observing fasts.
Multitudes of false cases related to dowry and rape have put innumerable men and women, many innocent families and innocent souls in prison, where they are fated to languish for long being victimized by conspirators. Don’t such false cases actually strangle the nation and the humanity?

According to an officer, “About 98% of rape cases have been proved false. I have seen only 3 cases proved to be true during my entire tenure of 12 years.” 

I will bring the Gurukul into disrepute to close it 

The girl was sick a few days back. She was treated also, and there are documents of her medical treatment. Then she showed signs of mental instability. According to her girl-friends; she used to spend hours in the bathroom; and talk over the phone for hours while strolling on the roof till late night.
One girl student of Chhindawara Gurukul said about the accuser girl: “She did not want to stay in the Gurukul. She was more interested in watching films; talking about boys; and eating fast foods. So to save her from degeneration, her father got her admitted to the Gurukul. It was difficult for her to live in the environment of discipline, eating sattvik food given in the Gurukul, following observances and doing mantra-japa. She used to watch films secretly. She wanted to leave the Gurukul. She used to think out how to get out of the Gurukul. She used to stroll on the roof for hours at mid-night.” 
Few days before leaving the Gurukul, she said, “I want to earn a good name. I will bring the Gurukul into disrepute. Then it will get closed automatically. Then my father will be obliged to get me released from this place.” 
To traduce the gurukul; she devised a plan to traduce Bapuji. And the easiest way to defame a world-famous saint was character-assassination. 
A girl-friend of the accuser girl said, “When I asked her why did she falsely accuse Bapuji. She said, ‘I said what I was advised to say.’ 
The girl reached Shajapur with her parents. Her brother was also called back from the Chhindwara Gurukul by the police. He showed a positive attitude towards the Gurukul in writing and video-interview before leaving the Gurukul. But then after meeting the conspirators, he said, “Food is not served in the Gurukul. We are starving because only fish and meat are served to us.” This is a lie. It is not possible. Many such false allegations were leveled which were published by the local media. He was made to level so many completely false allegations; and the girl was also made to level baseless allegations. The conspirators made the brother and the sister tell lies. Their statements are suggestive of a conspiracy hatched by the plotters.
Completely Normal Medical Report 
The medical report of the accuser girl says that there was no mark of any scratch or tooth-bite on her body. She had not been assaulted either sexually or physically. In spite of the medical report being completeley normal; the non-bailable section 376 of the Indian Penal Code still stands unnecessarily. Even the girl also has never complained about rape in her statement. 

What a fictitious story! 

The girl said, “Bapuji called me in the room. My mother was sitting outside the room. Bapuji closed the door; and tried to remove my clothes. Then I started screaming. So he closed my mouth. He kept caressing over my body for one and a half hour. Then He threatened me saying, ‘Don’t tell your parents; otherwise I’ll kill you.’ 
When I came out of the room after one and a half hour; I was nervous and frightened. Then I went in the house of the sadhaka, which is outside the compound of the Kutiya, with my mother. I told nothing to my parents and slept.” 

What an invented tale this is! The girl; who was sick; and who had been treated; who was mentally disturbed; who was called with her parents from Chhindwara to Shajapur; and from there to Jodhpur (more than 2000 kilomeres); whose mother is sitting outside the room; her parents are present and not even an ordinary or a foolish man could keep a girl’s mouth closed with one hand and keep fondling her for one and a half hour; while the farmer’s house is very close; and in addition to it; her parents are also there; this is not possible. When the mother is sitting near the door of the Kutiya; why didn’t she hear the girl’s screams? When a girl of 16-17 years, who has been sexually assaulted for one and a half hour, comes before her mother; do you think that she would not suspect anything on looking at her condition? She complained that she was abused for one and a half hour. How could the girl know the exact duration of time in such a condition? Did she look at the watch before going to meet Bapuji, and also check the time after coming back? 
The girl said in her statement, “I came out and slept quietly with my parents.” How can anybody sleep quietly after such an incident? Then on the next morning she played with the farmer’s children (the devotee; whose house is near the Kutiya), and gifted them two hundred rupees also. She went to the station by car. If she was resisting the offender, who was pressing his mouth with one hand and caressing her body with the other for one and half an hour, why did not she get marks or abrasions on her body? Won’t her mother suspect anything on looking her mouth pressed for one and a half hour? 
As the room was reported to be closed; light was switched off; and the girl stayed inside for one and a half hour. In such a condition why didn’t her mother, who was sitting outside the room, knock the door? Or why didn’t she ask the so called three boys, who were standing outside? 
What other information does the police have other than the girl’s concocted story? What is the evidence in support of her statement? The medical report is normal. The incident is reported to have taken place on 15th August; and the FIR was registered on 20th of August; why was it delayed so much? The girl belongs to U.P., she was studying at Chhindwara in (M.P.); and the said incident is said to have taken place at Jodhpur (Raj); then the FIR was registered in Delhi police station at 2.45 a.m. Why? And that too why at Kamala Market Police Station only? If they had reached Delhi from U.P. by train, bus or air-plane; then also there were three other police stations on main roads before Kamala Market. Why didn’t they get FIR registered at those police stations? Every move of their strategy raises many questions. 
Can the police send such a famous and great saint into jail just on the basis of a baseless FIR registered by a 16-17 years old girl, without having a single strong evidence? He has been working for the spread of Indian culture; rendering great services to the society; working for the uplift of children, youths, and women; providing medical services to sick people; providing food to the poor through Bhandaras and distribution of grains; and doing relief works in all types of natural calamity for the last fifty years. Then what is the political motive behind all this? Is it to destroy the backbone of Hindu Dharma? Is it to dilute the faith of Hindu people in their own religion in order to bring them in the fold of other religions? India is India only till Hindu Dharma survives. Do they want to destroy the country itself by destroying the Hindu Dharma? It raises many questions. The awakened and intellectual people should think over it seriously. There should be strong laws to control the media; which are bent upon increasing their TRP by spreading baseless rumors. Otherwise the society will be misled by false propaganda. People will end up losing faith in the religion and saints. Why do they always blame only Hindu saints? If we end up losing our faith in our culture and religion; we will get ruined! “Where there is Dharma, there is victory; where there is Dharma there is prosperity.”

The Spiritual Revolutionist – Sant Shri Asaramji Bapu

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.’

With due respect to the feelings of devotees, Every leaf of this website is a flower offered by the devotees at the lotus feet of Param Pujya Bapuji. In fact, trying to eulogize the Self-realized all-pervading and perfected great Man 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 empathizes 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.

‘सर्वभूतहिते रतः’ ‘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 – ‘वसुधैवकुटुम्बकम्’ ‘The whole world is one family’. Pujyashree’s message is — all men should shun envy and malice 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.

“Most revered Bapuji is Godly saint, Life makes a head way by His mere ‘Darshan’.

— Sri Jayendra Saraswatiji the Sankaracharya of Kanchi Kamkoti Peetha

https://i2.wp.com/lh5.ggpht.com/_zYIJWp_QePQ/TTcT6tgfIrI/AAAAAAAAAgg/9obRIDbo304/image004.jpg

Trying to express ‘His’ greatness in words, Mahamandaleshwar Shri Paramatmanandji Maharaj Says: “In the form of the most honorable, 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 Gynaneshwarji Maharaj, the compassion of Buddha, the austerity of Mahavir Swami, the penchant for selfless service of Hanumanji, the steadfastness in Sadhana 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 organizations 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. His Holiness 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 endeavors 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 marvelous blend of the depth of Meditation Yoga, the joy of Bhakti Yoga and the Knowledge of the Ultimate Truth of Gyan Yoga. In addition to that, Karma Yoga finds a perfect expression in His life. The Society is being benefited today by a number of altruistic 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. (Out of these, the chief ones shall be described in the forthcoming ‘Rishi Prasad’ Issue) It is impossible to state all the benefits accruing from Mantra-diksha.

Embodiment of Causeless Unbidden Mercy

https://i2.wp.com/lh5.ggpht.com/_zYIJWp_QePQ/TTcVNFSREEI/AAAAAAAAAhQ/FWfiDfhf8S0/s512/RP6.JPG

Pujyashree tells us that when he was a Sadhaka, he used to undergo pangs of separation from the Lord and yearn for God-Realization and would say to Lord, “’Let me find You once’ then You see how low-priced (easily available) I will make You.”

Today these words of Pujyashree are proving to be perfectly true. An ocean of Self-bliss is always undulating around Him where anybody irrespective of his religion, sect, caste and creed can take a dip.

Bapuji’s kind words give message of hope and enthusiasm to the downcast humanity like streams of fresh water flowing through scorched desert lands. Pujyashree says with firm conviction, “Even if you fall a thousand times, take another step on the path of truth… success will have to beat your feet.”

Pujya Bapuji has brought forth the holy Ganges of the Knowledge of Gita in the polluted and restive atmosphere of Kaliyuga, where both the deserving and the undeserving can take a dip and get themselves purified.

The ambrosia of Self-bliss that Bapuji attained after years of sadhana undergoing all kinds of trials and tribulations, is being dispensed open handedly by him among the masses by continuously touring all round the country. There are thousands of Sadhakas who observe a vow of taking food and water only after having Pujyashree’s Darshan on every Purnima. Pujya Bapuji bears hardship Himself and gives Purnima Darshan and Satsang at two-three places in a single day, so that the devotees may not have to take the trouble of travelling long distances. He frequently goes into solitude but His devotees seek Him out and the kind-hearted Bapuji accedes to their prayer for Darshan and satsang, sparing time from his invaluable spiritual enterprise.

Truly…Our Guru is compassion-incarnate for the poor;

He gratifies everyone without any efforts on their part; He wants everyone, to fill therir empty bags (i.e.become prosperous), By realizing the Supreme Self.

If Bapuji finds a poor person on the way, an ocean of compassion that He is, He stops His vehicle and gives him Prasad or Money or some such thing. Nobody is unknown to Pujya Bapuji.When Pujyashree sees somebody bareheaded or barefooted or showing some other sign of deprivation, he is so filled with compassion that he gives away his own sandals, umbrella or even the cloth that he wears around neck. On the top of it, Pujyashree gives him a smile which he can not forget for the rest of his life.

It is notable that on 29th janjuary, 2009, a grand conference of saints was held in Mumbai, in which the leading saints of almost each and every organization and institution of the country were present.

Benefactor of the Deprived – Sant Shri Asaramji Bapu

A saint has remarked, “For a hungry man, food alone is the spirituality, food grains are actual God and clothing solely is Divinity.”

It is absolutely true. Until and unless the fire in the stomach are satiated one can not imbibe spiritual percepts howsoever sound and great they may be. Pujya Bapuji, who is ever engaged in uplifting all strata of the society, by organising distribution of food to the poor along with satsang, has indeed put this principal into practice. Large bhandaras (feasts) are organized for the poor and trible people under Pujyashree’s guidance. Thereafter, clothes, utensils, food grains, oil, soap, amla choorna packets, Chyavanprash, sweetmeats, footwear and other daily necessities are distributed. Cash assistance too is provided. And at last, they are served with the nectar of devotion. As the devotees are engrossed in Kirtana (devotional chanting), the pace of chanting is upped and the loved one’s of the Lord are led into the laughter exercise to give them a taste of bliss. This extraordinary technique replaces the humdrum of their lives with cheerfulness. Then Pujyashree advises them on how to lead a healthy, happy and contented life.

Pujyashree tells them, “Among tribal people an erroneous custom of wearing silver bangles and silver rings has crept in, which is detrimental to health. Gold ornaments should be worn above the navel and silver ornaments, below te navel. Those going against this principle are prone to have physical and mental afflictions and those following it enjoy good health.”

The Sadguru who teaches the art of converting tears into a musical composition, death into salvation, hatred into love, defeat into victory has been instrumental in putting a stop to the practice of mourning excessively in memory of the ancestors that was prevalent in tribal community and has replaced it with the custom of expressing gratitude for the departed souls thereby converting death into an auspicious happening. The book titled ‘Mangalmay Jeevan Mrityu’ teaching the art of converting death into salvation, is a must for every household.

Lakhs of backward people have taken advantage of these Bhandaras, Sometimes sweet porridge, sweetmeats, fruits, sherbet, buttermilk, umbrellas are distributed in addition to Bhandaras. Trible people affectionately use different terms for Bapuji like ‘Sweet porridge Baba’ and ‘Buttermilk Baba’. In view of Bapuji himself participating in such altruistic endeavours His disciples get inspiredto follow suit with great zeal and enthusiasm. Bapuji says, “Make your life a celebration. (Utsav) ‘Ut’ means supreme and ‘sav’ means yajna (sacrificial act). Feeding a hungry man, giving water to the thirsty, showing the way to one who has lost his way, providing courage to te dejected, showing the path of satsang to people in bad company- all these are Karm-Yajnas (The Yoga of selfless action). If you feed a hungry person, hewill of course be benefited by way of his hunger getting satiated; but at the same time you will be all the more benefited by way of mental satisfaction an spiritual elevation.

“The Ashram’s work in trying to uplift the poor and downtrodden should continue in the future

also. Various spiritual and humanitarian endeavours for the welfare of the humanity especially

through the message of love and brotherhood are worthy activities for the uplift of the society.”

On top of this, Pujyashree tells his disciples “You should not entertain the feeling that you are doing any favours by giving something to the other person. On the contrary, he is doing us a favour by providing us an opportunity to be of service to him. This should be the feeling in our heart. In reality, it is the same Lord who is accepting the gift and it is verily the same Lord who is inspiring the giver.”

Inflation, poverty and un-employement are the burning issues today because of which a huge segment of the society is leading a miserable life. For such people Bapuji has, out of his supremely beneficent spiritual thinking started a unique program,‘have food and get paid for performing devotions’. This scheme has been in operation for a good number of years. Poor, jobless and deprived people assemble in the Ashram or at specified places and participate in devotional chanting, japa, satsang, and self-study of scriptures from morning till evening. They are provided with afternoon meals free of cost and are given 30 Rupees in the evening as wages. This way poverty and un-employment is reduced and at the same time the environment is sanctified by the japa and devotional chanting.

In times of earthquakes, floods and other natural calamities, Pujyashree Himself visits affected areas as far as possible. He provides them a helping hand, consoles them and builds up courage in the people there. Where He cannot reach Himself, He sends his disciples and gets items of necessity and daily use distributed free houses as well.

On occasions like Deepawali when the people are busy celebrating and enjoying the occasion with friends and family, this saint, the darling of masses, goes, amidst the poor people and tribals hoping to bring the smile of Deepavali lamps to their withered faces. The saint delivers them from misery and want and fills their life with such brightness that they say in unison:

“If it is Deepawali Bapu has to come and whenever Bapu arrives it is Deepawali.”

High and mighty que up for hours, craving for His Darshan. When such a high profile saint stoops to talk to a poor and destitute man and inquires about his welfare, it becomes a spectacular sight. Pujya Bapuji sends a message out for the countrymen, “A number of people in India are suffering; we should look after them, Temples should of course be built but at the same time we should also build some houses and, medical centres for the poor and provide them adequate clothing.”

Do light lamps in your own house on the Deepawali day, but if there is a poor neighbour, light a few lamps in his house too. Distribute some seetmeats, fruits and clothes over there as well and say a few words of affection and encouragement. Illuminate life with the light of Vedic Knowledge of ‘सर्वे भवन्तु सुखिन:’ “May all beings be happy…”

 https://i0.wp.com/lh6.ggpht.com/_zYIJWp_QePQ/TTcWa1l__II/AAAAAAAAAh0/tR_t1dDE2sM/rp91.JPG

Poverty does not fefer only to the absence of wealth; one who does not posses peace of mind and happiness is also a pauper. Probably, that is why it is said, ‘Guru Nanak says the whole world is unhappy.’ Attachment, hatred, jealousy, greed, selfishness, censure are worst poisons of this age because of which a number of people are suffering acutely. Even such people, when come across Bapuji, their various vices like attachment, hatred and jealousy is converted to love, greed is replaced by sacrifice, selfishness and calumniation are replaced by self-lessservice and they learn the art of getting established in the Self and thereby attaining salvation.

 https://i2.wp.com/lh3.ggpht.com/_zYIJWp_QePQ/TTcWa9Ask_I/AAAAAAAAAh4/QDFeVMpC8TQ/rp92.JPG

Under the guidance of the compassion-incarnate Pujyashree, the Ashram and its vaious samitis have undertaken a variety of service tasks namely: Distribution of daily necessities in orphanages, distribution of free food grains to the poor, destitute and the widows, distribution of buttermilk and water gratis in public places, distribution of fruits, milk, medicines and literature in hospitals, anti-addiction campaigns, organization of free medical camps and arrangement of free mobile despensaries, prisoner-upliftment programsin jails etc…

Impressed by these altruistic activities under Bapuji’s auspices, VHP’s International president Shri Ashok Singhal says, “The entire Hindu society shall remain indebted to Param Pujya Bapuji for the great achievement he has made in instilling faith, in the tribal and forest people, in the Hindu culture and the Hindus will never be able to repay the debt. The great personage has set up various service programmes in tribal areas. Those, who could not tolerate this, have tried to malign the saint through the media. Hindu society will not be affected by this propaganda and it is the need of the hour to be alert and spread the tight message.”

The Indweller of All Hearts – Sant Shri Asaramji Bapu

Standard

Pujya Bapuji is ever engaged in the good of the mankind and in efforts for increasing peace and happiness in their lives, for making their lives free from tension, for accord and harmony in their family lives and for their spiritual advancement. Not only human beings, he takes due care that even the tiniest of creatures should not be hurt or deprived of their right to live. He instruct his disciples also the same so as to walk carefully so as not to trample ants and other creatures, to throw grains to the birds and to offer morsels to the cows- to act with humility towards all beings not out of compassion but considering them akin to one’s own Self. Pujya Bapuji says in His satsang: आत्मवत् पश्येत् सर्वभूतेषु । ‘Know all beings to be part and parcel of the Supreme Being like yourself.’

Image

Engaged in the welfare of all living beings, Pujya Bapuji saved the life of thousands of cows being taken to the slaughter-house. He set up large cow-sheds and made arrangements for their food etc. India will forever be indebted to Him for this act of his, which gives to the countrymen, the message of rearing cows alongwith that of compassion towards all living beings.

The supreme well-wishers of all living being i.e. the God-realized saints abide in all beings as the Atman. Even at the time of sadhana, Hismagnanimous belief of ‘अहं आत्मा सर्वभूताशयस्थित:’ ‘I am the Atman abiding in all beings’ had attained pefection. The incidents of Pujyashree treading upon snakes in the darkness of his cave and the latter not biting Him bear testimony to this fact.

श्री आसारामायण

गुरु चरण रज शीष धरि, हृदय रूप विचार।

श्रीआसारामायण कहौं, वेदान्त को सार।।

धर्म कामार्थ मोक्ष दे, रोग शोक संहार।

भजे जो भक्ति भाव से, शीघ्र हो बेड़ा पार।।

भारत सिंधु नदी बखानी, नवाब जिले में गाँव बेराणी।

रहता एक सेठ गुण खानि, नाम थाऊमल सिरुमलानी।।

आज्ञा में रहती मेंहगीबा, पतिपरायण नाम मंगीबा।

चैत वद छः उन्नीस अठानवे, आसुमल अवतरित आँगने।।

माँ मन में उमड़ा सुख सागर, द्वार पै आया एक सौदागर।

लाया एक अति सुन्दर झूला, देख पिता मन हर्ष से फूला।।

सभी चकित ईश्वर की माया, उचित समय पर कैसे आया।

ईश्वर की ये लीला भारी, बालक है कोई चमत्कारी।।

संत की सेवा औ श्रुति श्रवण, मात पिता उपकारी।

धर्म पुरुष जन्मा कोई, पुण्यों का फल भारी।।

सूरत थी बालक की सलोनी, आते ही कर दी अनहोनी।

समाज में थी मान्यता जैसी, प्रचलित एक कहावत ऐसी।।

तीन बहन के बाद जो आता, पुत्र वह त्रेखन कहलाता।

होता अशुभ अमंगलकारी, दरिदता लाता है भारी।।

विपरीत किंतु दिया दिखाई, घर में जैसे लक्ष्मी आयी।

तिरलोकी का आसन डोला, कुबेर ने भंडार ही खोला।

मान प्रतिष्ठा और बड़ाई, सबके मन सुख शांति छाई।।

तेजोमय बालक बढ़ा, आनन्द बढ़ा अपार।

शील शांति का आत्मधन, करने लगा विस्तार।।

एक दिना थाऊमल द्वारे, कुलगुरु परशुराम पधारे।

ज्यूँ ही बालक को निहारे, अनायास ही सहसा पुकारे।।

यह नहीं बालक साधारण, दैवी लक्षण तेज है कारण।

नेत्रों में है सात्विक लक्षण, इसके कार्य बड़े विलक्षण।।

यह तो महान संत बनेगा, लोगों का उद्धार करेगा।

सुनी गुरु की भविष्यवाणी, गदगद हो गये सिरुमलानी।

माता ने भी माथा चूमा, हर कोई ले करके घूमा।।

ज्ञानी वैरागी पूर्व का, तेरे घर में आय।

जन्म लिया है योगी ने, पुत्र तेरा कहलाय।।

पावन तेरा कुल हुआ, जननी कोख कृतार्थ।

नाम अमर तेरा हुआ, पूर्ण चार पुरुषार्थ।।

सैतालीस में देश विभाजन, पाक में छोड़ा भू पशु औ’ धन।

भारत अमदावाद में आये, मणिनगर में शिक्षा पाये।।

बड़ी विलक्षण स्मरण शक्ति, आसुमल की आशु युक्ति।

तीव्र बुद्धि एकाग्र नम्रता, त्वरित कार्य औ’ सहनशीलता।।

आसुमल प्रसन्न मुख रहते, शिक्षक हँसमुखभाई कहते।

पिस्ता बादाम काजू अखरोटा, भरे जेब खाते भर पेटा।।

दे दे मक्खन मिश्री कूजा, माँ ने सिखाया ध्यान औ’ पूजा।

ध्यान का स्वाद लगा तब ऐसे, रहे न मछली जल बिन जैसे।।

हुए ब्रह्मविद्या से युक्त वे, वही है विद्या या विमुक्तये।

बहुत रात तक पैर दबाते, भरे कंठ पितु आशीष पाते।।

पुत्र तुम्हारा जगत में, सदा रहेगा नाम।

लोगों के तुम से सदा, पूरण होंगे काम।।

सिर से हटी पिता की छाया, तब माया ने जाल फैलाया।

बड़े भाई का हुआ दुःशासन, व्यर्थ हुए माँ के आश्वासन।।

छूटा वैभव स्कूली शिक्षा, शुरु हो गयी अग्नि परीक्षा।

गये सिद्धपुर नौकरी करने, कृष्ण के आगे बहाये झरने।।

सेवक सखा भाव से भीजे, गोविन्द माधव तब रीझे।

एक दिन एक माई आई, बोली हे भगवन सुखदाई।।

पड़े पुत्र दुःख मुझे झेलने, खून केस दो बेटे जेल में।

बोले आसु सुख पावेंगे, निर्दोष छूट जल्दी आवेंगे।

बेटे घर आये माँ भागी, आसुमल के पाँवों लागी।।

आसुमल का पुष्ट हुआ, अलौकिक प्रभाव।

वाकसिद्धि की शक्ति का, हो गया प्रादुर्भाव।।

बरस सिद्धपुर तीन बिताये, लौट अमदावाद में आये।

करने लगी लक्ष्मी नर्तन, किया भाई का दिल परिवर्तन।।

दरिद्रता को दूर कर दिया, घर वैभव भरपूर कर दिया।

सिनेमा उन्हें कभी न भाये, बलात् ले गये रोते आये।।

जिस माँ ने था ध्यान सिखाया, उसको ही अब रोना आया।

माँ करना चाहती थी शादी, आसुमल का मन वैरागी।।

फिर भी सबने शक्ति लगाई, जबरन कर दी उनकी सगाई।

शादी को जब हुआ उनका मन, आसुमल कर गये पलायन।।

पंडित कहा गुरु समर्थ को, रामदास सावधान।

शादी फेरे फिरते हुए, भागे छुड़ाकर जान।।

करत खोज में निकल गया दम, मिले भरूच में अशोक आश्रम।

कठिनाई से मिला रास्ता, प्रतिष्ठा का दिया वास्ता।।

घर में लाये आजमाये गुर, बारात ले पहुँचे आदिपुर।

विवाह हुआ पर मन दृढ़ाया, भगत ने पत्नी को समझाया।।

अपना व्यवहार होगा ऐसे, जल में कमल रहता है जैसे।

सांसारिक व्यौहार तब होगा, जब मुझे साक्षात्कार होगा।

साथ रहे ज्यूँ आत्माकाया, साथ रहे वैरागी माया।।

अनश्वर हूँ मैं जानता, सत चित हूँ आनन्द।

स्थिति में जीने लगूँ, होवे परमानन्द।।

मूल ग्रंथ अध्ययन के हेतु, संस्कृत भाषा है एक सेतु।

संस्कृत की शिक्षा पाई, गति और साधना बढ़ाई।।

एक श्लोक हृदय में पैठा, वैराग्य सोया उठ बैठा।

आशा छोड़ नैराश्यवलंबित, उसकी शिक्षा पूर्ण अनुष्ठित।।

लक्ष्मी देवी को समझाया, ईश प्राप्ति ध्येय बताया।

छोड़ के घर मैं अब जाऊँगा, लक्ष्य प्राप्त कर लौट आऊँगा।।

केदारनाथ के दर्शन पाये, लक्षाधिपति आशिष पाये।

पुनि पूजा पुनः संकल्पाये, ईश प्राप्ति आशिष पाये।।

आये कृष्ण लीलास्थली में, वृन्दावन की कुंज गलिन में।

कृष्ण ने मन में ऐसा ढाला, वे जा पहुँचे नैनिताला।।

वहाँ थे श्रोत्रिय ब्रह्मनिष्ठित, स्वामी लीलाशाह प्रतिष्ठित।

भीतर तरल थे बाहर कठोरा, निर्विकल्प ज्यूँ कागज कोरा।

पूर्ण स्वतंत्र परम उपकारी, ब्रह्मस्थित आत्मसाक्षात्कारी।।

ईशकृपा बिन गुरु नहीं, गुरु बिना नहीं ज्ञान।

ज्ञान बिना आत्मा नहीं, गावहिं वेद पुरान।।

जानने को साधक की कोटि, सत्तर दिन तक हुई कसौटी।

कंचन को अग्नि में तपाया, गुरु ने आसुमल बुलवाया।।

कहा गृहस्थ हो कर्म करना, ध्यान भजन घर ही करना।

आज्ञा मानी घर पर आये, पक्ष में मोटी कोरल धाये।।

नर्मदा तट पर ध्यान लगाये, लालजी महाराज आकर्षाये।

सप्रेम शीलस्वामी पहँ धाये, दत्तकुटीर में साग्रह लाये।।

उमड़ा प्रभु प्रेम का चसका, अनुष्ठान चालीस दिवस का।

मरे छः शत्रु स्थिति पाई, ब्रह्मनिष्ठता सहज समाई।।

शुभाशुभ सम रोना गाना, ग्रीष्म ठंड मान औ’ अपमाना।

तृप्त हो खाना भूख अरु प्यास, महल औ’ कुटिया आसनिरास।

भक्तियोग ज्ञान अभ्यासी, हुए समान मगहर औ’ कासी।।

भव ही कारण ईश है, न स्वर्ण काठ पाषान।

सत चित्त आनंदस्वरूप है, व्यापक है भगवान।।

ब्रह्मेशान जनार्दन, सारद सेस गणेश।

निराकार साकार है, है सर्वत्र भवेश।।

हुए आसुमल ब्रह्माभ्यासी, जन्म अनेकों लागे बासी।

दूर हो गई आधि व्याधि, सिद्ध हो गई सहज समाधि।।

इक रात नदी तट मन आकर्षा, आई जोर से आँधी वर्षा।

बंद मकान बरामदा खाली, बैठे वहीं समाधि लगा ली।।

देखा किसी ने सोचा डाकू, लाये लाठी भाला चाकू।

दौड़े चीखे शोर मच गया, टूटी समाधि ध्यान खिंच गया।।

साधक उठा थे बिखरे केशा, राग द्वेष ना किंचित् लेशा।

सरल लोगों ने साधु माना, हत्यारों ने काल ही जाना।।

भैरव देख दुष्ट घबराये, पहलवान ज्यूँ मल्ल ही पाये।

कामीजनों ने आशिक माना, साधुजन कीन्हें परनामा।।

एक दृष्टि देखे सभी, चले शांत गम्भीर।

सशस्त्रों की भीड़ को, सहज गये वे चीर।।

माता आई धर्म की सेवी, साथ में पत्नी लक्ष्मी देवी।

दोनों फूट-फूट के रोई, रुदन देख करुणा भी रोई।।

संत लालजी हृदय पसीजा, हर दर्शक आँसू में भीजा।

कहा सभी ने आप जाइयो, आसुमल बोले कि भाइयों।।

चालीस दिवस हुआ न पूरा, अनुष्ठान है मेरा अधूरा।

आसुमल ने छोड़ी तितिक्षा, माँ पत्नी ने की परतीक्षा।।

जिस दिन गाँव से हुई विदाई, जार जार रोय लोग-लुगाई।

अमदावाद को हुए रवाना, मियाँगाँव से किया पयाना।।

मुंबई गये गुरु की चाह, मिले वहीं पै लीलाशाह।

परम पिता ने पुत्र को देखा, सूर्य ने घटजल में पेखा।।

घटक तोड़ जल जल में मिलाया, जल प्रकाश आकाश में छाया।

निज स्वरूप का ज्ञान दृढ़ाया, ढाई दिवस होश न आया।।

आसोज सुद दो दिवस, संवत् बीस इक्कीस।

मध्याह्न ढाई बजे, मिला ईस से ईस।।

देह सभी मिथ्या हुई, जगत हुआ निस्सार।

हुआ आत्मा से तभी, अपना साक्षात्कार।।

परम स्वतंत्र पुरुष दर्शाया, जीव गया और शिव को पाया।

जान लिया हूँ शांत निरंजन, लागू मुझे न कोई बन्धन।।

यह जगत सारा है नश्वर, मैं ही शाश्वत एक अनश्वर।

दीद हैं दो पर दृष्टि एक है, लघु गुरु में वही एक है।।

सर्वत्र एक किसे बतलाये, सर्वव्याप्त कहाँ आये जाये।

अनन्त शक्तिवाला अविनाशी, रिद्धि सिद्धि उसकी दासी।।

सारा ही ब्रह्माण्ड पसारा, चले उसकी इच्छानुसारा।

यदि वह संकल्प चलाये, मुर्दा भी जीवित हो जाये।।

ब्राह्मी स्थिति प्राप्त कर, कार्य रहे ना शेष।

मोह कभी न ठग सके, इच्छा नहीं लवलेश।।

पूर्ण गुरु किरपा मिली, पूर्ण गुरु का ज्ञान।

आसुमल से हो गये, साँई आसाराम।।

जाग्रत स्वप्न सुषुप्ति चेते, ब्रह्मानन्द का आनन्द लेते।

खाते पीते मौन या कहते, ब्रह्मानन्द मस्ती में रहते।।

रहो गृहस्थ गुरु का आदेश, गृहस्थ साधु करो उपदेश।

किये गुरु ने वारे न्यारे, गुजरात डीसा गाँव पधारे।

मृत गाय दिया जीवन दाना, तब से लोगों ने पहचाना।।

द्वार पै कहते नारायण हरि, लेने जाते कभी मधुकरी।

तब से वे सत्संग सुनाते, सभी आर्ती शांति पाते।।

जो आया उद्धार कर दिया, भक्त का बेड़ा पार कर दिया।

कितने मरणासन्न जिलाये, व्यसन मांस और मद्य छुड़ाये।।

एक दिन मन उकता गया, किया डीसा से कूच।

आई मौज फकीर की, दिया झोपड़ा फूँक।।

वे नारेश्वर धाम पधारे, जा पहुँचे नर्मदा किनारे।

मीलों पीछे छोड़ा मन्दर, गये घोर जंगल के अन्दर।।

घने वृक्ष तले पत्थर पर, बैठे ध्यान निरंजन का घर।

रात गयी प्रभात हो आई, बाल रवि ने सूरत दिखाई।।

प्रातः पक्षी कोयल कूकन्ता, छूटा ध्यान उठे तब संता।

प्रातर्विधि निवृत्त हो आये, तब आभास क्षुधा का पाये।।

सोचा मैं न कहीं जाऊँगा, यहीं बैठकर अब खाऊँगा।

जिसको गरज होगी आयेगा, सृष्टिकर्त्ता खुद लायेगा।।

ज्यूँ ही मन विचार वे लाये, त्यूँ ही दो किसान वहाँ आये।

दोनों सिर बाँधे साफा, खाद्यपेय लिये दोनों हाथा।।

बोले जीवन सफल है आज, अर्घ्य स्वीकारो महाराज।

बोले संत और पै जाओ, जो है तुम्हारा उसे खिलाओ।।

बोले किसान आपको देखा, स्वप्न में मार्ग रात को देखा।

हमारा न कोई संत है दूजा, आओ गाँव करें तुमरी पूजा।।

आसाराम तब में धारे, निराकार आधार हमारे।

पिया दूध थोड़ा फल खाया, नदी किनारे जोगी धाया।।

गाँधीनगर गुजरात में, है मोटेरा ग्राम।

ब्रह्मनिष्ठ श्री संत का, यहीं है पावन धाम।।

आत्मानंद में मस्त हैं, करें वेदान्ती खेल।

भक्तियोग और ज्ञान का, सदगुरु करते मेल।।

साधिकाओं का अलग, आश्रम नारी उत्थान।

नारी शक्ति जागृत सदा, जिसका नहीं बयान।।

बालक वृद्ध और नरनारी, सभी प्रेरणा पायें भारी।

एक बार जो दर्शन पाये, शांति का अनुभव हो जाये।।

नित्य विविध प्रयोग करायें, नादानुसन्धान बतायें।

नाभ से वे ओम कहलायें, हृदय से वे राम कहलायें।।

सामान्य ध्यान जो लगायें, उन्हें वे गहरे में ले जायें।

सबको निर्भय योग सिखायें, सबका आत्मोत्थान करायें।।

हजारों के रोग मिटाये, और लाखों के शोक छुड़ाये।

अमृतमय प्रसाद जब देते, भक्त का रोग शोक हर लेते।।

जिसने नाम का दान लिया है, गुरु अमृत का पान किया है।

उनका योग क्षेम वे रखते, वे न तीन तापों से तपते।।

धर्म कामार्थ मोक्ष वे पाते, आपद रोगों से बच जाते।

सभी शिष्य रक्षा पाते हैं, सूक्ष्म शरीर गुरु आते हैं।।

सचमुच गुरु हैं दीनदयाल, सहज ही कर देते हैं निहाल।

वे चाहते सब झोली भर लें, निज आत्मा का दर्शन कर लें।।

एक सौ आठ जो पाठ करेंगे, उनके सारे काज सरेंगे।

गंगाराम शील है दासा, होंगी पूर्ण सभी अभिलाषा।।

वराभयदाता सदगुरु, परम हि भक्त कृपाल।

निश्छल प्रेम से जो भजे, साँई करे निहाल।।

मन में नाम तेरा रहे, मुख पे रहे सुगीत।

हमको इतना दीजिए, रहे चरण में प्रीत।।
