MORARI BAPU

From time to time, many great saints have adorned this very fortunate and holy land of Bharat (India), and this nation once again has been blessed with purity and divinity by the coming of Pujya Morari Bapu.

Bapu was born on the 25th September 1946 in Talgajarda (a small village near the port of Mahuva in the State of Gujarat, India), to Prabhudas Bapu Hariyani and Savitri Ben Hariyani. Pujya Bapu has six brothers and two sisters. From the very beginning young Moraridas (Bapu) showed signs of extraordinary brilliance and spent most of his childhood under the guidance of his Grandmother often spending hours listening to folk tales of traditional India.

At the age of five Bapu began learning the Ramayana (Ram Charit Maanas) from his Grandfather and Guru, Tribhovan Das Dada. A principled and learned scholar of the Ram Charit Maanas, Tribhovandas Dada would teach five chowpais (couplets) to Bapu each day who then had to memorize them with their meaning throughout the day. The study of the Ram Charit Maanas would take place on the site today known as Chitrakut Dham in Talgajarda and has become a place of pilgrimage for thousands of people. Both Bapu’s grandparents were the guiding force behind his upbringing and the most influential persons in his life in his formative years. The nearest school was some 2km from Talgajarda and Bapu would memorize chowpais from the Ram Charit Maanas he had learnt earlier in the day as he walked to school, often, singing to the trees and the plant life on his path. On his return home Bapu had to recite back to Dadaji what he had memorized.

At school, his teacher, Ram Shanker Bhatt, remembers Bapu as a young boy who was “an introvert, quiet and an independent student”. The High School Headmaster, Narotamkaka Mehta, recalls Bapu as being an intellectual student with an unusually high regard for cultural and religious values and as “a good student of the institution”. Such was the relationship between the teachers and their pupils that in the monsoon months when the river Maalan between Talgajarda and Mahuva became waterlogged and unpassable, Bapu and his school friends were encouraged not to venture home. The teachers would, instead, accommodate the young boys safe in their homes. Bapu often cites the journey to and from school which he says played an instrumental role in allowing him to sing and understand the depths of the Ram Charit Maanas. Even today when Bapu is at home, he walks the path between Mahuva and Talgajarda (now a proper road) where the village folk join in and talk to him about the issues concerning the village.

Born in the Vaishnav Sadhu Nimbarka Parampara (lineage), Bapu was also encouraged via letters from his paternal great grand father, Mahamandleshwar Vishnu Giriji Maharaj of “Kailas Ashram” Rishikesh, on the banks of the Ganges, to be proficient in the Bhagvat Gita and the Vedas. At the age of 12, Bapu began to recite the Ram Charit Maanas by heart. Bapu recalls the birthplace of his first recital where he made a small platform out of mud and placed a portrait of Lord Ram and began to decipher to a few herdsmen who had come to quench their thirst in the evening. The shrine today is commemorated in Talgajarda with a temple of Hanumanji Maharaj and named Ram Vaadi (meaning Lord Ram’s orchard).

As years went by, Pujya Bapu began to attract the attention of the elder villagers who would test his knowledge of the Ram Charit Maanas and on every occasion the young boy would leave the elders stunned. On completing secondary school, He started a teacher training course at Shahapur College in Junagarh. Bapu today talks about his years in Junagarh where he would sit with his mala (rosary) for hours on end and his room mate being concerned would complete work on his behalf. Little wonder then that Bapu jokes that he managed a Hat-Trick by failing his exams three times. It was during this time that He spent his free time to attend discourses by well known speakers and reading scriptures or singing chowpais of the Ram Charit Maanas with music.

On completing his teacher training course he returned to Mahuva where he became a teacher at the J.Parekh High School teaching various subjects including English. During his ten years as a teacher, Bapu often took time off to listen to prominent speakers and meeting some of India’s most revered spiritual leaders, among them Vinobha Bhave, Dongreji Maharaj, Punit Maharaj and Krishna Murti. At the same time Bapu’s interest in Indian Literature and poetry grew fonder and he regularly attended sessions on various literary subjects by high ranking orators. Bapu often quotes some of the finest works by poets such as the nationally recognized Indian poet, Zaverchand Meghani, whose poem on Mahatma Gandhi inspired him tremendously. Increasingly Bapu’s quest and thirst for Ram Katha (The story of Lord Ram) began to take precedence and he would sit in the Ram Vaadi in Talgajarda singing the Ram Charit Maanas and interpreting their meanings to the villagers. Bapu’s extraordinary command and oratory style quickly gathered crowds and the first ever Ram Charit Maanas Maas Parayan ( a month long discourse on the Ram Charit Maanas) was organized at the Ram Temple in Talgajarda in the Chaitra Month of 1960. People from nearby towns and villages packed the small temple to listen to Bapu whose popularity quickly spread and subsequently led to a number of month long discourses.

The first Navaan Parayan (nine day discourse) was held in Gaandilaa in Gujarat in the presence of Pujya Ramfardasji Maharaj (a respected and revered saint from Gujarat) in May 1966. Morari Bapu’s name and command of the Ram Charit Maanas and his heart rending narrations brought people from all over India in their thousands to listen to his Ram Katha often overwhelming listeners and organizers alike. This was the beginning of a reawakening of large numbers,in particular, of young men and women listening to Ram Katha. The era of listening to Ram Katha in large numbers had begun in India and lovingly he became known as “Bapu” (meaning Father) and the first ever recital by Bapu outside India was held in Nairobi, Kenya in 1976 when He was merely 30. This was the beginning of Pujya Bapu’s untiring quest to bring about a new upliftment and commonality amongst all living beings not only in India but throughout the world. A deep sense of pride in one’s own religion once again reawakened peoples’ beliefs and at the same time learning to accept and tolerate other faiths. From 1960 to date Pujya Bapu has recited Ram Katha throughout India including places of pilgrimages at the heights Kedarnath, Badrinath and Gangotri in the Himalayas. In 1984 preceding a nine day recital in Bhavnagar, Gujarat, Bapu resided within the compounds of Bhavnagar Jail to impart a spiritual message to the prisoners and prison authorities alike. Today thousands flock to listen to Pujya Bapu’s benevolent message from the Ram Charit Maanas. Soon Bapu was to enlighten people living not just in India and Africa but in various parts of the world including the U.K. and the U.S.A

He moves among people continuously, where in his everyday life one can see a conglomeration of ideals that are the basis of a good social structure, and on the other side, smoothly harmonized spiritual practices, devoid of all harshness that so often creep up on the austere aspirants. This way of living a life, called Dharma, has been a very stable source of inspiration to people from all walks of life, both in India and abroad. His entire living is to bring many different branches and sects of religion (even of other faiths), different parts of this nation with variety of languages, and the different levels of society with a panorama of cultural variation to a common ground of undivided understanding. He shows a way of uniting not just one nation, but the whole of human race, while, at the same time preserving their individual fragrances. He expressly calls out to the humanity for love and respect for each other, because that is the only way to save the whole world from disaster and complete ruin.

People who have seen him for the last forty years say, that, he lives each principle or ideal for a length of time, realizes its worth, only then he wishes for those who listen to the Katha, to take his words not just on their face-value, but, suggests that they should see for themselves if the teachings are applicable to their problems and livable in their own lives. He looks on life as a whole, in all its variety of aspects, from a different level, and uses his extraordinary vision and insight, seeped in love, to look for an optimal solution in each situation that presents itself to him. In and through all his actions, a watchful and trained eye can see him staying above the waves of involvement, as a lotus rising above the waters and blooming for the sun, seemingly without any effort on its part. Perhaps, the most striking and realistic feature of a meeting with him is the calmness of mind and a song of inner joy, that is so often felt by so many. Even without indulging in any conversation, sorrow is forgotten. A wave of peace and purity is felt immediately. Love is his medium of teaching. Those who have the good fortune to watch him at close quarters, having done so for decades, are established in their salutation of him as an embodiment of pure love and deep compassion for.

Shree Sitaram Seva Trust (UK) under the auspices of Hanumanji Maharaj was graced with organizing the Setubandh Ram Katha on board the Cunard Princess, a Mediterranean flagship, to enable the sea world with the opportunity to listen to a Ram Katha. This benevolent Katha was to mark the beginning of Pujya Bapu’s long-standing inner wish for peace in the universe. In 1992, an International katha was staged in New York to mark Bapu’s thirty years of recitations with a variety of exhibitions and partaking events. This was followed by Pujya Bapu circumambulating (Parikramaa) the United Nations Building in New York and The White House in Washington praying for World Peace.

In July 1994 Pujya Bapu’s “Sambhav” Ram Katha brought religious leaders from various faiths on one platform in London and the entire Katha was televised live on satellite T.V.

In 1994, a Parikrama (circumambulation) of the world with the Ram Charit Maanas on the “Pushpak Ram Katha” was organized by the Shree Sadguru Seva Foundation USA At the time of giving the dates for this Katha Pujya Bapu was unaware that the start date (13th August 1994) was also the birthday of Goswami Tulsidas, the author of the Ram Charit Maanas. This must have been the wish of Lord Shiv (who had certified Goswami Tulsidaji’s Ram Charit Maanas) and Hanuman ji Maharaj (the constant listener of Ram Katha) to be able to listen to Ram Katha by a much loved and revered sant with the intention of the divine chowpais reaching every part of the world. For the very first time a Ram Katha with 250 people on board a specially refitted plane was recited at the height of 37,000 feet in different time zones crossing international boundaries, during the day or night and overwhelming all aviation and immigration regulations. The Pushpak (Plane) took off from New York with overnight stops in Los Angeles (USA), Honolulu (stopover), Nadi (Fiji), Auckland (New Zealand), Singapore, Mumbai (India), Nairobi (Kenya), London (England), and Toronto (Canada).

1996 marked Pujya Bapu’s 50th Birthday and also his 500th katha. The Gujarat City of Baroda was graced with organizing the 500th Katha during the Chaitra Navraatri (the first nine days of the month of Chaitra) in March of that year.

From 9th August to 19th August 1997, Pujya Bapu recited from the Ram Charit Manas in the most sacred of abodes at Manasarovar “Lake of the Mind” at the foot of Mount Kailas in the Himalayas. Manasarovar is a natural lake at 15,500 feet above sea level which is the source of the River Saryu which flows in Ayodhya (India ) and the origin of Ram Katha by Lord Shiva. Those privileged enough to accompany Pujya Bapu to listen to Ram Katha at Manasarovar were blessed with Pujya Bapu’s words and experience the greatest episode of their lifetime. Again, Pujya Bapu’s love and respect for the Ram Charit Manas and it’s status in resolving all miseries was recited in the most sacred abode.

The Maanas-Kailas Yatra (Pilgrimage) commenced on 26th July 1997 and concluded on 26th August 1997 taking the two hundred pilgrims during the holy Hindu Shraavan Month from Lhasa to Maansarovar. Eleven pilgrims undertook a three day circumambulation (Parikramaa) of the Mount Kailas where Lord Shiv resided with his consort Goddess Parvati. A time-capsule containing Pujya Bapu’s personal items, the Shree Ram Charit Manas and Srimad Bhagvat Gita scriptures, various books, photographs, artifacts and documents, was also be laid by Pujya Bapu to commemorate the Yatra and the Katha at Manasarovar. During the Katha, Pujya Bapu together with the pilgrims also celebrated the 500th Jayanti (birthday) of Goswami Tulsidas, the author and composer of the Shri Ramcharitmaanas on Sunday 10th August 1997, India’s 50th Independence Day on Friday the 15th August 1997 and Rakshaa Bandhan (tying an auspicious band by the Guru on the Shisya or sister on the brother wishing them a blissful year) and Purnima (full moon) on Monday the 18th August 1997.

The Manas – kailas Yatra is a focal point for all those who aspire to reach this sacred abode and for all those who were unable to join. Over the past 38 years Pujya Bapu has undertaken Ram Charit Maanas pilgrimages in India, Nepal, Sri Lanka, Kenya, Tanzania, South Africa, Zambia, New Zealand, Singapore, Canada, UK, USA, in the air around the world and at sea but Maanasarovar is considered to be the most important recital ever to take place.

On Full Moon in July of every year is “Guru Purnima”, the most important day for all shishyas (disciples) to pay homage to their respective Guru (teacher). As usual, every year on Guru Purnima thousands gather to listen to and pay their respects to Pujya Morari Bapu in Talgajarda. This is the most important day in the Guru – Shisya Paramparaa and people from all over the world converge at Chitrakut Dham, Talgajarda to listen to Pujya Bapu’s divine message.

Morari Bapu

Morari Bapu was born to Prabhudas Bapu and Savitri Ma Hariyani on the auspicious day of Maha-Shivratri in Talgajarda, a small village near Mahuva in the District of Bhavnagar and State of Gujarat, India. Born into the Vaishnav Bava Sadhu Nimbarka lineage (parampara) where every male is called “Bapu” from childhood, Morari Bapu is commonly referred to as “Bapu” (meaning Father). Bapu has five brothers and two sisters, and is married with one son, three daughters and several grandchildren.

Bapu spent most of his childhood under the guidance of his paternal grandmother, Amrit Ma, often spending hours listening to folk tales from her of traditional India. At the age of five, Bapu began learning the Ram Charit Manas from his paternal grandfather, who is his only Guru, Tribhovandas Bapu. Both of Bapu’s paternal grandparents were the influential guiding forces behind his upbringing.

Tribhovandas Bapu, affectionately called Dadaji, was a principled and learned scholar of the Ram Charit Manas. He would teach Bapu five couplets (chaupais) with its meaning each day. As the nearest school was approximately seven kilometres from Talgajarda, Bapu would utilize his time while walking to and from school to memorize the couplets with their meanings he had learnt earlier in the day, often singing to the trees and the plant life on his path. Upon his return home, Bapu would recite back to Dadaji what he had memorized.

At a young age, Bapu was also encouraged through letters from his paternal grandfather’s brother, Mahamandleshwar Vishnudevanand Giriji Maharaj, an ascetic of the Kailas Ashram in Rishikesh, to be proficient in the Bhagvat Gita and the Vedas.

At school, his teacher Ram Shanker Bhatt, remembers Bapu as a young boy who was an introvert, quiet and an independent student. The High School Headmaster, Narotam Mehta, recalls Bapu as being an intellectual student with an unusually high regard for cultural and religious values, and as a good student of the institution.

At the age of 12, Bapu began to recite the Ram Charit Manas by heart. As years went by, Bapu began to attract the attention of the elder villagers who would test his knowledge of the Ram Charit Manas, and on every occasion, young Bapu would leave the elders stunned. After graduating from secondary school, Bapu started a teacher training course at Shahapur College near Junagadh. Upon completion, he returned to Mahuva where he became a teacher at the J. Parekh High School teaching various subjects including English.

During his ten years as a teacher, Bapu often took time off to listen to prominent speakers and to meet some of India’s most revered spiritual leaders. At the same time, Bapu’s interest in Indian literature and poetry grew fonder and he regularly attended sessions on various literary subjects by high ranking orators.

Bapu’s extraordinary command and oratory style quickly gathered crowds. His first Ram Katha was held at the Ram Mandir in Talgajarda in 1960. Bapu’s name, command of the Ram Charit Manas and his heart rending narrations brought people from all over India in the thousands to listen to his Ram Katha, often overwhelming listeners and organizers alike. This was the beginning of a new era of listening to Ram Katha in large numbers by people from all walks of life and of all age groups. Bapu’s first Ram Katha outside India was held in Nairobi, Kenya in 1976 when he was merely 30 years old. To date, Bapu has recited Ram Katha in countless places all over India and the rest of the world.

Bapu moves among people continuously. In his everyday life, one can see a conglomeration of ideals that are the basis of a good social structure, and on the other side, smoothly harmonized spiritual practices, devoid of all harshness. His entire living is to bring many different branches and sects of religion (even of other faiths) and the different levels of society to a common ground of undivided understanding, love and unity. He shows a way of uniting not just one nation, but the entire human race, while at the same time, preserving their individuality. He refers to his Ram Katha as a prem yagna where people gather in the name of love and expressly calls out to humanity for love and respect for each other.

In Bapu’s words, the summary of righteousness (dharma) is threefold: truth (satya), love (prem) and compassion (karuna). Bapu’s life is like the flow of the river Ganges (Ganga pravah) – similar to how new water continuously replaces the current stream, Bapu believes in flowing traditions (pravahi parampara) that evolve with the times.

morari bapuકેટલાક લોકો પૂછે છે કòષ્ણે છળ કર્યું, કપટ કર્યું, કોઈને દગો આપ્યો, ભીષ્મ સામે પ્રતિજ્ઞા તોડી, નંદબાબા સામે જૂઠંુ બોલ્યા, કદી રણ છોડી ભાગ્યા, એ કòષ્ણ શું કોઈ જીવનો આશ્રય થઈ શકે? આદર્શ થઈ શકે, જેણે આટલાં છળ-કપટનો આશ્રય લીધો હોય? ભાગવતનાં અને મહાભારતનાં પાનાં ઉથલાવો તો ખ્યાલ આવશે કે કòષ્ણકાળ એવો હતો કે ત્યારે સારા અને ખરાબ વરચે નિર્ણય કરવાનો નહોતો, જૉ એવો સાદો નિર્ણય જ કરવાનો હોત તો કòષ્ણ સાચાનો-ભલાનો નિર્ણય લેત, પરંતુ તેમણે તો કોણ વધુ ખરાબ અને કોણ ઓછું ખરાબ એ વરચે નિર્ણય કરવાનો હતો અને સ્વાભાવિક છે કે ઓછા ખરાબના પક્ષે રહીને નિર્ણય લે તો તેમાં વધુ લોકોનું કલ્યાણ થતું હોય. આમ વધુ લોકોનું કલ્યાણ જૉઈને કપટનો માર્ગ લીધેલો. સીધોસાદો ગુણ-અવગુણનો નિર્ણય નહોતો, વધારે અવગુણ કોનામાં અને ઓછા અવગુણ કોનામાં એવો નિર્ણય કરવાનો હતો. જયારે છળના માર્ગે વિશ્વના લોકોને આરામ મળવાનો હતો ત્યારે તેમણે એ કરવામાં જરાય સંકોચ નહોતો કર્યો. કòષ્ણ નિહથ્થા કર્ણને મારત નહીં, પરંતુ તેમણે વિચાર્યું કે જૉ કર્ણ બચી જશે તો ખબર નહીં શું થશે. એટલે તેમણે દેખીતી રીતે ખોટો લાગતો માર્ગ અપનાવ્યો. તેમનો નિર્ણય ખોટો હતો એવું કોણ કહી શકે?

મહાભારત કાળમાં શ્રીકòષ્ણના રસપ્રધાન ચરિત્રના આપણને દર્શન થાય છે, ખરેખર શ્રીકòષ્ણનું ચરિત્ર સિદ્ધાંતપ્રધાન છે, રસ પાછળ રહ્યો છે. શ્રીકòષ્ણ પ્રતિપાદિત કરે છે કે કર્મ જ ગુરુ છે, કર્મ જ ઈશ્વર છે, તો પછી ઇન્દ્રની શી જરૂર છે? શ્રીકòષ્ણે જયારે વ્રજમાં લોકોને સમજાવ્યું કે આ બધું સુખ, દુ:ખ, ભય, ક્ષેમ કર્મના આધારે થાય છે, તો કર્મના આધારે વર્ષા થાય છે. આમ, કર્મના આધારે જ બધું થાય છે તો તેમાં વરચે ઇન્દ્રને લાવવાની શી જરૂર છે? નંદબાબાએ સામે સવાલ કર્યોતો પછી કોની પૂજા કરીએ? શ્રીકòષ્ણ જવાબ આપે છે, જે આપણને ખરા અર્થમાં ઘાસ આપે છે એ ઘાસ ખાઈને ગાય દૂધ આપે છે, જળ વૃક્ષને પોષે છે. વૃક્ષો ફળ આપે છે, જેની કંદરાઓ આશ્રય આપે છે. વૃક્ષો કોઈનો અનાદર કરતાં નથી. આગ લાગે તોપણ બોલતાં નથી. જળ વરસે તોપણ બોલતાં નથી. વીંછીઓને પણ સાચવે છે, મહાત્માઓનેય આશરો આપે છે. એ ગિરિરાજને જ શા માટે ન પૂજીએ? ગિરિરાજને પૂજવા સૌ તૈયાર થઈ ગયા. ઈન્દ્ર પ્રતીક્ષા કરી રહ્યા છે કે આ વર્ષની પૂજા કેમ નથી આવી. તેમને જાણ થઈ કે એક બાળકે તેમની પૂજા અટકાવી દીધી છે. બાળકે કહી દીધું કે કર્મકાંડ બંધ કરો. ગિરિરાજને પૂજૉ. ઇન્દ્ર કોપિત થાય છે. પ્રલય કરવાવાળા મેઘોના ગણને કહે છે કે વ્રજ પર તૂટી પડો. મુશળધાર વર્ષા તૂટી પડે છે ત્યારે કòષ્ણ ટચલી આંગળીએ પર્વત ચકીને ગોપ-ગોપીઓને આશ્રય આપે છે.

On his 59th birthday on 25th September 2004, Pujya Morari Bapu vowed to eradicate Tuberculosis disease from the world. This noble thought got an immidiate response from ‘Sorath Khshay Nivaran Samiti’ – a movement supported by prominent Lohanas residing in Saurashtra. These people mooted a plan to establish in Akshaygadh near Keshod in Gujarat, a world-class ‘Tuberculosis Advanced Diagnostic And Research Centre’ for which Bapu readily agreed to recite ‘Ram Katha’ for 9 days from 25th September 2004 at the hospital site to publicize ‘Revised National Tuberculosis Programme’ initiated by Govt. of India.

LO brings you all a hand-written appeal in Gujarati of Morari Bapu to to support him fight the Tuberculosis infection prevailing across the globe.

India is considered the land of saints and seekers of spiritual realization. From time immemorial there has been an anxious groping after the unknown reality throughout the nation. In one way or another, efforts have been made to see God face to face. All the resources of human mind, both emotional and intellectual sides, have made efforts to obtain the sacred bliss of Atman – the peace which is beyond all material understanding. From the Vedic times till date, luminaries like Lord Rama, Lord Krishna, Buddha, Nanak, Sankara, RamaKrishna, Ramanuja, Vivekananda & many others incarnated in India, our country is essentially the the land of saints & sages.

Child Aasumal is born…
The God is inscrutable and His Leela(s) (pass-times) are even more so. When God decides to come down to make the world rise out of ignorance, He, in his compassion, assumes an embodied form; and blessed are those whom He selects as His parents. Shri Thaumal Sirumalani and his consort Menhgiba were indeed so blessed. This child incarnated in the village of Berani, district Nawabshah, Sindh state of unpartitioned India on the sixth day of Chaitra Vadi, Vikram Samvat 1998. He was named Asumal.

The day Aasumal was born, a merchant stopped by Shri Thaumalji’s house & said that day before all of a sudden he had a strong feeling that a great saintly child shall be born in ThauMalji’s family. Therefore he brought a swing for this special child. Many saints & needy started coming for alms to the door of the benevolent Thaumal everyday.

Birth of Asumal

There was a myth in the society that a child born after three sisters brings trouble & misfortune to the family; but instead this family earned more respect, fortune & happiness.

When Asumal was three years old the spiritual teacher of their family, Shri Parasuramji Maharaj, visited their house and professed that this boy Asumal is not an ordinary child & he will be a great saint and show light of spiritualism to people living in ignorance.

Early Childhood
As a child, Asumal was quite inclined towards religious epics. Like the parents of many other great saints Asumal’s parents were adorned with the hearts that shone with purity, nobility and great reverence to teachers and saints. Mother is always the very first teacher of a child. Asumal would listen to stories of Ramayana, Bhagwavata and other scriptures from his mother. The first seed of spiritual life was sown in his life during this period.

One day mother Menhgiba dressed up Asumal in clothes embroidered with silver and gold colored thread (zari) and shining diamonds. Asumal was overwhelmed with this new dress. He kept gazing at the blanket of stars in the night and said, “O Sky! I’m not at all less than you. I’m wearing clothes embroidered with shining diamonds similar to that of yours.” Thus, right from early childhood, one could see a different positive vigour and self-confidence in Asumal’s attitude…Young Asumal

Asumal, starded displaying glimpses of prodigious memory at the young age of three. He would often accompany his elder brother to school. Once the teacher asked the students to narrate the poem which was taught a day before, Asumal at such a young age stood up and narrated the complete poem without any mistake. Everyone was surprised.

Due to the unfortunate partition of India the whole family had to migrate from Sindh in Pakistan to Maninagar near Ahmedabad, in Gujarat.

Asumal started going to school again in Maninagar. Six year old Asumal was very brilliant in studies. During the recess time, when other childeren used to play, Asumal would sit under a tree for meditaion. The teachers used to praise Asumal for being very cheerful, pure-hearted and intelligent. Teachers used to to call him Hansmukh bhai (the one who keeps smiling always). While leaving for school, Shri Thaumal used to fill Asumal’s pocket with cashews, pistachios and almonds. Asumal would share these nuts with all other students. At home, Asumal would serve his father by massaging his feet at night.

Mother is the first Guru of a child. Mother Mehgiba developed Asumal’s interest in dhyaan-bhajan (meditation and prayers) right from his early childhood. Mehgiba would put makkhan-mishri (sweetened butter) in front of Asumal when he would be sitting for meditation with his eyes closed. She would tell Asumal to open his eyes and see what prasaad (blessed food) God had sent for him. Asumal would keep sitting in deep meditation for long hours in a small room. When the neighbours would come to meet Mehgiba, finding Asumal meditating so profoundly, they would attract Menhgiba’s attention towards him. Inspired by the neighbours, Mehgiba would ask Asumal to do less of meditation, but nothing could move Asumal’s determination.

When Asumal saw that school education could be used merely for the purpose of winning bread and fulfilling worldly enjoyment, he became disenchanted to education. Nevertheless he continued going to school. Whenever there was any time to spare, he would go to a lonely place and meditate.

Youth and Spiritual Quest

At a very young age Asumal lost his father and the family business started dwindling. Asumal had to discontinue his education and shoulder on the family’s responsibility along with his elder brother. Asumal’s presence in the business improved the profits, but his mind was far away from the business. He always yearned for spiritual knowledge.

After his father’s demise Asumal’s discrimination towards life intensified. He increased the time for mediation and realized that God alone is one reality & essence of life. His concentration increased greatly due to regular, pure meditation and unknowingly all siddhis (mystical powers) attended upon him at the tender age of ten years. No one could stop the fire of renunciation that was enveloping him completely. As Asumal grew into youth his meditation and search for Truth intensified. Asumal’s growing detachment to the world worried his family and they decided to get him married. Asumal’s family got him engaged.

“Granite walls however high are not high enough to shut out fate,
Iron chains however strong are not strong enough to trap a free bird.”

Asumal kept postponing marriage for two & half years. Eventually, his family fixed up a date for marriage. He did not want to be entangled in the bondage of marriage so he ran away from home eight days before marriage. Members of family & friends started searching for Asumal, they found him in Ashok Ashram of Bharauch & dragged him back to home. Asumal was married to Lakshmi Devi.

He told his wife, ” I don’t want to be enmesh myself into this samasara. I want to be free like Shuka, Buddha, Shankara. So don’t obstruct me in my way.” Lakshmi Devi did gave her assent. Even a golden chain could not bind a free bird.

Asumal joined a Sanskrit School in order to grow more spiritually. He used to sleep in the school at night away from his wife & practise celibacy (Brahmacharya) sincerely. Four days before exam he was highly influenced by a shloka which meant that, “The one who has disowned expectations & materialistic desires & has adopted the desireless state, the penances & worship of such a person has reached completion.” His desire to attain God got intensified. He made up his mind to break from family so as to realize God.

“Life at its best is a long drawn agony, only its pains bide,
Its pleasures are as birds that are light and fly;
Men live and die and whirl upon the wheel and hug and kiss it’s spokes of agony;
It’s tier of tears, it’s nave of nothingness.
I have been yearning to know if these were the eternal lot of men.”

Bapu as SadhakThese were the thoughts that were going on in the mind of Asumal when he renounced the world.

After leaving his dominions, Asumal went from place to place and at nights slept on the grass, homeless and alone. He did intense spiritual practices in deep forests, on hills, in deep caves, in various great temples.

At Kedarnath, the Pujari blessed Asumal to become a millionaire, but Asumal did not appreciate this. He worshipped again & made a pledge to attain God.

Asumal then went to Vrindavan, the land of Lord Krishna. Here he was inspired to go to the Ashram of the Great Guru, Swami Shri Lilashahaji Maharaj. He had to wait for 40 days in the Ashram to get the glimpse of Gurudev. There he stayed and served his SadGuru with true devotion. He waged war with so many troubles. He used to take just Moong Dal as food, sleep in a small 4.5 feet room. SadGurudev made Asumal go through several hardships for another 30 days & then finally Asumal was blessed. Swami Shri Lilashahaji Maharaj asked him to go back to home & continue his spiritual practices at home.

He came back to his Ahmedabad home. But his mind was attuned to only self-realization. No one can stop a man who is on his way to Paramapada (Ultimate Realization). He passed 13 days at his home but he became so restless that he made up his mind to leave his home again in quest of supreme beatitude.

He left his home and started doing intense spiritual sadhana on the banks of river Narmada at Moti Koral. A local saint Shri Lalji Maharaj got impressed by Asumal’s intense spiritual practices. Lalji Maharaj made arrangements for Asumal to stay in Datt Kutir of Ram Niwas (Lalji Maharaj’s Ashram). Asumal started the 40 dayAnushthan here.

One day while Asumal was meditationg in the bank of river Narmada, heavy rain poured. Asumal did not want to stop his meditation. He went to a nearby fisherman’s hut, and there he sat in meditation, soon he merged himself in deep meditation. Sometime later, the owner of the house came outside to attend his natural call & he saw our Asumal. He thought Asumal to be a thief and collected all the fishermen in the neighbourhood. Everybody in the near vicinity came with their weapons, sticks and swords etc. But Asumal was deeply merged in meditation. After some time he slowly opened his eyes and saw many people around him with all kinds of weapons, making noise. But who can do anything to a person who has conquered all sensory tendencies, like evil, animosity.

“No armor is invented till today, by man which has not succumbed to the attack of weapons and no defeat is known by him who has armored his soul with the training of the ‘Self’ with inward discipline.”

All people that came there gazed at him in wonder and beheld him with respect. They realized that he is a great saint doing meditation. Asumal immediately left that place with heavenly dignity. All these people asked for forgiveness & looked upon him with great reverence and esteem.

When Asumal’s wife and mother came to know that he was staying at Moti Koral they visited him. They requested him to come back.With Guru But Asumal told them without completing the Anushthan he cannot come. He successfully completed the Anushthan. The whole village & Shri Lalji Maharaj himself came to the railway station to see them off to Ahmedabad. As soon as the train started moving from Miyagam junction, Asumal jumped out and boarded a train towards Bombay.

Asumal reached Bombay (Mumbai) & went for darshan of SadGurudev Lilashahji Maharaj. It was the second day of Shukla Paksha in the month of Ashwin Samvat 2021, when after seeing his disciple’s great yearning to attain the truth and his intense and resolute will against all odds, the great Guru showered Purna Guru Kripa on him at the young age of 23. Swami Lilashahji blessed Asumal with ultimate knowledge, thereafter Asumal became merged in samadhifor two and half days. Sadhak Asumal was transformed into Swami Shri Asaramji Maharaj by the golden touch of SadGurudev (master). Asumal got enlightenment.

The end of sadhana was reached at last. The human being became a divine being.

Asumal started seeing the one supreme being in all. With SadGuru’s grace Asaramji discovered the absolute truth. Affinity for the world disappeared. Each moment of life was overflowing with the divine realization of existence of One in All. The stage beyond pride & material attractions was reached. The final destination where the Jiva becomes one with Parmatman was reached. The blissful state where nothing can separate one from God was finally attained.

Purna Guru Kripa Mili, Purna Guru Ka Gyan
Asumal Se Ho Gaye Sai Asaram…

Pujya Lila Shahji Maharaj instructed Asaramji to serve the humanity by staying as a householder.

After Self-Realization Sant Shri Asaramji Bapu stayed in solitude for seven years. Pujya Shri used to stay fully immersed in the bliss of the Atman (Brahmanand Masti) & give religious discourse to all those who came for darshana (meet & see Bapuji). Pujya Shri spent His solitude in various places like Disa, Naareshwar Dhaam, the Himalayas, Mt. Abu & so on…

Stay in Disa

By the commands of SadGuru, Sant Shri Asaramji Bapu started living in the Ashram of Disa village near Palanpur in Gujarat. Pujya Shri used to stay closed inside a secluded small room throughout the day & go to Banas river in the mornings & evenings. One day while coming back from the Banas river, Pujya Shri saw a dead cow surrounded by sveral villagers in front of the Disa Ashram. Swamiji gave some water to one villager to sprinkle it on the cow & quietly left the place. To the amazement of all, as soon as the water was sprinkled on the cow, it turned alive.

In DisaSometimes Pujya Shri used to go for alms to the village during his stay in Disa. One day when he went to a house & said, ‘Narayan Hari”, the woman of the house insulted Pujya Shri & used foul language. She did not know that a Self-Realized saint had come to her door. Pujya Shri remained calm & said to His inner self, “Now see God in the person who is insulting you!” The woman was surprised by the tranquility of Pujya Shri.

Once a businessman named Chandiram came to Disa Ashram to get blessings from Swami Lilashahji Maharaj before getting married for the third time to a young 18 year old girl. His earlier two wives were already dead. Pujya Shri gave a divine look & said to him, “Why should you go for this marriage? I would get you married to God!” Chandiram’s life changed all of a sudden. His lust simply vanished & instead of getting married, he started out his spiritual journey. Now he is better known as Mahant Chandiram & is a resident of Ashram.

A householder named Shivlal had a hotel in Disa. One day he heard about Pujya Shri from his friend & went for darshan. Shivlal had heard that this saint stayed in a closed room for days. On his way to see Pujya Shri, he was wondering what this saint used to eat staying in a closed room. To his utter surprise, Pujya Shri came to know what was going on in his mind & while giving discourse Swamiji mentioned that nobody needs to worry about what he ate. Shivlal came to know that Bapu is Antaryami (one who can read mind & knows everything). Shivlal became a follower & now he is a resident of Ashram.

One day Pujya Shri saw a lame labourer near the river. This man was very upset as he had been fired from his job. Pujya Shri not only assured him that he would get his job back but also made him cross the river by carrying him on the shoulders. This man was bewildered when his employer accepted him back, offered a simpler job with increased salary.

Several people got rid of their age old addictions for alcohol, tobacco & non-veg food here at Disa after listening to Pujya Shri’s satsang. People troubled with life found solace in Pujya Shri’s words & several well-established people realized the importance of spiritualism.

…But the folks of Disa could not recognize Bapuji’s divinity. Once after satsang Pujya Shri jokingly said, “A saint and a materialistic person are alike, isn’t it?” The audience did not understand this statement & started replying in affirmation. Pujya Shri got up immediately, removed the cloth which was wrapped around his body, & made his journey onwards in under shorts. People asked for forgiveness but a saint has no affinty for the world. The actions of a saint cannot be interpreted by a common man (Fakiri Masti)…

At Naareshwar Dhaam

Pujya Shri left Disa & went deep inside the dense forests of Naareshwar Dhaam. Bapuji sat under a tree for meditation for the whole of night. In the morning he felt a little hungry & thought, “I’ll keep sitting here. The one who needs me shall send food. The Creator Himself would come…” Very soon two farmers came & offered milk & fruits to Swamiji. They said that in their dreams they were inspired to takePrasad for Pujya Bapuji. Pujya Shri came to know that this is God’s Leela. The farmers said that they would return with more villagers. Asaramji realized that God is the basis of all.
Pujya Shri wrote on the ground:
Jogi to ramta bhala (A saint does not stay at one place!) and left the place…

The Himalayas

Swamiji then went to Nainital to pay visit to Pujya Lilashahji Maharaj. Getting instructions from SadGurudev, Pujya Shri headed for the Himalayas. Pujya Shri spent time in various places like Rishikesh, Gangotri, Uttar Kashi, Badrinath, Kedarnath etc.

Mt. Abu

Sometimes in summer Pujya Shri would go into the dangerous jungles of Mount Abu. Pujya Shri knew that the same Supreme Soul resides even in the ferocious animals therefore no animal could ever disturb Bapuji’s tranquility. In Mt. Abu Pujya Shri used to give satsang in the evenings.

Address to All India Vedanta-Ramayana Parliament in 1971

Pujya Shri captured the hearts of many by the sweet nectar of His satsang in the All India Vedanta-Ramayana Parliament held at Arya Nagar, Kanpur. There were 41 other famous orators also present in the gathering.

Life as a Householder:

Pujya Shri met Swami Lilashahji in Haridwar in Vikram Samvat 2028, & by the commands of SadGuru, inorder to provide a goodSai Asaramexample to common householders, Swamiji entered the life of a householder. It was the day of Guru Punam in Vikram Samvat 2028 when Pujya Shri reached Ahmedabad after staying in solitude for seven years. Bapuji lead a life similar to that of saints like Kabir and Ekanath. Bapuji chose a peaceful place in the Motera village on the banks of Sabarmati river. Later on some of the devotees constructed a small room for Swamiji which is very well known as “Moksha Kutir”. Though the village of Motera was very famous for its thieves and boot-leggers, Bapuji lived there submerged in the joy of communion with Atman.

The fragrance of this beautiful spiritual flower spread in all directions inviting to sip the nectar. Thousands of people started coming to Motera to get solace from their worldly afflictions and to get peace at the feet of Sant Shri Asaramji Bapu.

Slowly that place has become a great spiritual center. It is now called Sant Shri Asaramji Ashram. All sections of people come there to get peace and spiritual solace. Many new Ashrams & Yoga Vedanta Samiti’s have also evolved since then. The Ashram conducts several spiritual retreats, yoga camps & humanitarian work.

Divine personalities like Krishna, Buddha, Rama, Jesus and Mohamed influence the lives of millions of people for centuries. Their influence is not limited by time. Nay, it undergoes a process of time enlargement : with the passage of centuries the Flurry of these prophets, instead of decreasing, goes on increasing.

Each saint or world teacher comes as the embodiment of the dominant ideal of a particular age, and his life becomes the highest moral standard and ideal for the people of that age.

Man has been continually discovering new ways of exploiting nature and improving the means of production of food, clothing, other necessities and also the means of transport and travel. Each epoch with it’s changed condition, throws new challenges to the people. These external challenges can be met only by mobilizing the inner spiritual resources of the people. It is through ideas and ideals that the inner energies of man get mobilized. Certain charismatic individuals who become masters of new religions or new religious movements develop the new ideals necessary for each epoch.

Bapu Ji: Idea PersonalityIt is to this class of saints and world teachers that Sant Shri Asaramji Bapu belongs. Swamiji’s advent was a historical necessity. There was the need for a charismatic individual who could create and vitalize the basic ideals of the present age. Sant Shri Asaramji Bapu’s exemplary life has fulfilled this requirement. Pujya Bapuji is the source of energy which is emitting great Vedantic ideals in the present age for the welfare of mankind.

Beyond the bare rudiments of literacy, Shri Asaramji Bapu never had formal education. Most of Swamiji’s youth was spent in the intense practice of spiritual sadhana. Pujya Shri virtually lived the life of a monk depending solely on God’s grace. How can such a man be regarded as the ideal man for the modern age which idealizes film stars, sportsmen, politicians, and now for a change, miracle-working yogis? See any newspaper, or magazine and you will find almost every page displaying pictures of men and women in all kinds of dress and posture who project idealized pictures of contemporary society. No other age ever allowed lust and greed to dominate the minds of the people so completely as the modern age has done. Every thing in modern society is valued for the sake of money. Can Shri Asaramji Bapu who is a sage become the ideal for the people of such a society?

The answer is that an ideal stands for perfection & imperfect individuals cannot give these ideals. Western cultures consider beauty, truth and goodness as the criteria of perfection. However physical beauty is only skin deep, and is as evanescent as youth itself. Truth is sought through science, to another mystery beyond. The basis of goodness is unselfish love, but in the market oriented culture of modern society unselfishness is the scarcest commodity.

Perfection must be sought in the right place. Thousands of years ago it was discovered in India, that perfection could not be found in the external world, which is impermanent and full of contradictions. Freedom from all limitations is the Vedantic criterion of perfection. Immutable Truth, unity of existence, boundless bliss, this is what is meant by perfection in Vedanta. There is only one thing, which is free from all limitations of time, space, causation: It is absolute consciousness. It is in the depths of consciousness, that perfection is to be sought. It is this total freedom that is the vedantic criterion of perfection, and the individual who has attained this freedom is the ideal of perfection. He is known as the Bramavit, knower of Brahman.

Sant Shri Asaramji Bapu is the embodiment of this ancient Vedantic ideal of perfection. The ideal person according to Vedanta is one who after attaining liberation for himself strives for the liberation of others. Such a fully illuminated soul is called a Rishi. It is as a perfect Rishi that Sant Shri Asaramji Bapu is said to be the ideal man for modern age.

What are the morals of a fully illuminated soul? According to Pujyapad Sant Shri Asaramji Bapu there are three: Renunciation, Knowledge, and Compassion.

"Jai Jagdeesh Hare" Aarthi & Essence of Gita


In the Hindu household, dusk and dawn, hold a special significance as far as prayer is concerned, as it is during this transition (From dawn to morning, and dusk to evening) that negativity needs to be burnt and righteousness welcomed.

Traditionally the ‘Aarti’ is performed during the morning and evening in a Hindu household.

The Aarti consists of a small flame, which burns on a wick, placed on a plate, which is rotated round the Deity.

The Ritual of the Aarti makes the light of the flame dispel darkness, the incense that is burnt gives out fragrance, a bell is rung, hands are clapped while one sings the Aarti. All the above is very good to ward of an evil eye!

The ‘Aarti’ reminds us of the greatness of the Lord, because the flame that we rotate is symbolic of the Cosmos (Sun, Moon, Stars) revolving around the Almighty paying obeisance to Him.

A beautiful prayer is sung, for the Lord of the Universe ‘Jagadeesh’.

Jagadeesha comes from 2 words ‘Jagat’ and ‘Eeshwara’

‘Jagat means ‘Creation’ and ‘Eeshwara’ means Lord.


Om Jaya Jagadeesha harey Swaami Jaya Jagadeesha harey
Bhakta janon key sankata, daas jano key sankata,

Kshana mein door Karey – Om Jaya Jagadeesha harey..

It means:
Salutation to Thee, O Lord of the universe,
Thou, who, in an instant, removes the sorrows and problems, of those who love Thee!
Salutations unto Thee!


Jo Dhyaavey Phala Paavey Dukha Vinasey Mana kaa
Sukha Sampati Ghara Aavey, Kashta Mitey Tana kaa -
Om Jaya Jagadeesha harey…

It means:
Thou reward Thy devotees, who sing Thy praise, by removing their mental afflictions.
Joy, prosperity and health enter the homes of those who pray to Thee!


Maat Pitaa Tum Merey Sharana Gahoon kiski
Tum Bin Aur na Doojaa Aash karoon Jiski – Om Jaya…

It means:
Thou art my Mother and Father, whose refuge I seek;
There is no one else beside Thee, who I could really count on!


Tuma Purana Paramaatmaa
Tuma Antaryaami Par-Brahma Parameshvara
Tuma Sabake Swami – Om Jay…

It means:
Thou art Complete and Perfect! There is nothing hidden from Thee!
Thou art Perfect, Eternal, Absolute. The Lord of all Creation!


Tuma Karunaa Ke Saagar Tuma Paalana Kartaa
Mai moorakh khal-kaami
Mai Sevaka Tum Swami Kripaa Karo Bharataa – Om Jay…..

It means:
Thou art an Ocean of Compassion, Thou art the Protector of all,
I am ignorant, O Lord! I am but your Servant, while Thou art my Master!
Do Have Mercy on me!


Tum Ho Ek Agochara Sabkey Praanapati
Kisa Vidhi Miloon Dayaamaya Tuma ko main kumati – Om Jay……

It means:
Thou art the One. The Real Essence. The Life of all lives.
How do we unite?
I, who am so ignorant, and Thou who art All Merciful?


Deena Bandhu Dukha Harataa Thaakur Tum merey Swaami Rakshaka tum Mere
Apney haath uthaao, apney charan lagaao, Dwaar para main terey, Om Jay……

It means:
Thou, art the Succour of the oppressed, and the Remover of pain and sorrow.
Thou art my Protecting Force!
I beseech Thee to Raise Thy hand, so that I surrender to Thee!


Vishaya Vikaar Mitaao Paap Haro Devaa
Shraddhaa Bhakti Badhaao Santan Ki Sevaa – Om Jay…..

It means:
Help me to get rid of my imperfections and vices,
Bless me with increasing faith, and spirit of service to the devout!


Tan Man sab tera, sab kuchh hai tera,
Tera tujhko arpan, kyaa laagey mera. Om Jay……

It means:
All that I possess belongs to Thee,
I offer Thee what in reality is Thine, As nothing is truly mine!

THE ESSENCE OF THE GITA

  • WHY DO YOU WORRY UNNECESSARYILY? FROM WHOM DO YOU FEAR? WHO CAN KILL YOU? THE ATMA IS NOT BORN, NOR DOES IT DIE.
  • WHATEVER HAPPENS, IT IS FOR THE GOOD, WHATEVER IS HAPPENING, IT IS ALSO GOOD. WHAT HAPPENS, THAT TOO WILL BE GOOD. YOU DO NOT REPENT FOR THE PAST. DO NOT WORRY FOR THE FUTURE. THE PRESENT IS GOING ON.
  • WHAT HAS GONE OF YOURS THAT YOU ARE CRYING? WHAT DID YOU BRING WITH YOU THAT YOU HAVE LOST? WHAT DID YOU GIVE BIRTH TO, THAT IT HAS BEEN DESTROYED? NO YOU DID NOT BRING ANYTHING WITH YOU, WHATEVER YOU TOOK YOU TOOK FROM HERE. WHATEVER YOU GAVE YOU GAVE FROM HERE. YOU HAVE COME EMPTY HAND AND WILL GO EMPTY HAND. WHAT IS TODAY YOURS – IT WAS YESTERDAY SOMEONE ELSES, THE DAY AFTER IT WILL BE OF SOMEONE ELSE. YOU ARE THINKING IT IS YOURS AND ARE BEING HAPPY. WELL THIS HAPPINESS IS THE CAUSE OF YOUR SORROW.
  • CHANGES ARE THE WORLD’S SPECIALITY. WHAT YOU CONSIDER AS DEATH IS ACTUALLY THE LIFE. IN ONE SECOND YOU ARE A MASTER OF CRORES, NEXT SECOND YOU ARE A BEGGAR. MINE – YOURS, SMALL – BIG, OURS – THEIRS, REMOVE THIS FROM YOUR MIND, REMOVE FROM YOUR THINKING, THEN YOU HAVE EVERYTHING, YOU BELONG TO EVERYONE.
  • NO THIS BODY TOO IS NOT YOURS – NOR YOU ARE FOR THE BODY. THIS IS MADE FROM FIRE, WATER, WIND, EARTH AND SKY AND WILL MERGE IN IT.
  • BUT THE ATMA IS PERMANENT, THEN WHAT ARE YOU?
  • YOU SURRENDER YOURSELF TO THE LORD. THIS IS THE BEST SUPPORT. THOSE WHO UNDERSTAND THIS SUPPORT, THEY ARE FOREVER FREE FROM FEAR, WORRY, AND SORROW.
  • WHATEVER YOU DO, OFFER IT TO THE LORD. BY DOING SO YOU WILL ALWAYS HAVE EXPERIENCE OF LIFE FREEDOM HAPPINESS.
