Bapa’s Jeevan Yatra
Hirdasji lived in Adhevada with his wife Shivkunverbaa. They always preyed to Janjria Hanumanji. About 100 Years ago Shivkunverbaa gave birth to Bajarangdas Bapa. It was known to all that Bapa was the complete incarnation Shesh Narayan. At the age of 11 year old, Bapa decided to visit Ayodhya to search for a Guru. As he came across the Sitaramji’s monastery in Khakhi Square and became a dear disciple of Guru Sitaramji.
Once during the Kumbh Mela, when thousands of Saints and Gurus Sitaramji got together at the sea bank in Mumbai. It was very hot and the water available was the salt water. How could they quench their thirst? Guruji gave Bapa the responsibility to get clean drinking water for all. Bapa did not know what to do, but naturally started digging on the sea banks. Others were surprises of what he was doing. As he continued digging, Ganga appeared on the sea bank of Mumbai. All of them began to drink the water. Guruji eyes opened for Bapa and saw him as having the capabilities of becoming a proficient saint.
Guruji Sitaramji was so impressed with Bapa that he gave him the permission to leave the monastery and work towards improving the society and the standards of life in the villages of India. Bapa was very thankful for the Guru’s comments and began on his journey to fulfil Guruji’s wishes. Bapa’s first visit was to Surat, where he stayed in Laxminarayan temple on Begampara Saveria Street. He then moved on to stay at Hanol Village in Ranjit Hanumanji for seven years, but could not forget his native town. On his journey he visited Bhavnagar Jadeja’s house and then Vivagala Shoe maker’s house. He then went to Palitana, Jesar and Kalmoder. Bapa then arranged a Saptah at Kalmoder Village and decided to stay there for three years.
Bapa then came to Bagdana village and saw Triveni Sangam. It was here that he recognised 5 important elements:
1. Bagdana Village
2. Bagad River
3. Bagdeshwar Mahadev
4. Bagladan Rishi hermitage
5. Bajrangdas Bapa
This became Bapa’s field of actions. The main aim was to improve the way of life in these areas and utilise the resources available to better the life style for those living in India.
