Background History of About April Fool’s Day
The history of this day is still a mystery for the people around the world. But some of them believed that this day came into existence around 1582, when France shifted from the Jullian calendar to the Gregorian calendar as per Council of Trent in 1563. Like Hindu calendar, the celebration of the new year in the Jullian calendar is around the 1st of April. And that celebration changed to 1st of January on adopting the Gregorian calendar. But when they shifted to the Gregorian calendar, some of the people who were late to receive the information, still wished and celebrated the new year around 1st April and became the victims of jokes and pranks upon them and they were denoted with April Fools. People used to play pranks with those people.
However it is believed that its history evolved out of Britain in the 18th century. In Scotland, this tradition became a two day event, where in the first day people were sent for hunting the gowk as it is a denotation for a fool (gowk is a word for cuckoo bird) which is completely against the Constitution of Supreme God Kabir as killing animals for one’s own selfishness is a heinous sin. They are also the souls of the same God as we are. While on the second day people play pranks with each other.

But playing pranks in a world of uncertainties where death can come to anyone anytime is still not advisable for a pious soul. Guru Nanak Dev ji said in his sacred speech:
Na jane ye Kaal ki kar dare, Kis vidhi dhal ja pasa ve |
Jinhade sir te maut khudakdi, unhanu keda hassa ve ||
Here Kaal refers to the Satan (Kaal Brahm) who is the cause of our birth and death and has the selfishness in keeping us in the cycle of birth and death.
Who is befooling us?
We all are taking birth, spending our lifetime and then dying. But have we ever wondered that if we are taking birth then why are we dying? This is because of the Satan (Kaal Brahm) here who is the master of 21 universes in which we are living here and are his puppets until we come into the refuge of Almighty God Kabir.
He has been cursed to eat 1 lakh human beings daily and produce 1.25 lakh in return. For this he has made arrangements for us as the butcher does for his animals to keep them satisfied until he needs them as he is afraid of the fact that human birth is the only way out to get out of his tangled web. And the only way out is to do true worship given by Supreme God Kabir as per our Holy Scriptures so as to take our souls to the eternal abode Satyalok where we all came from and become immortal forever. And the same is the motive of our human life, Kabir Saheb says in His verses:-
Manush Janam Paye Kar Jo Nahi Rate Hari Naam |
Jaise Kuua Jal Bina Fir Banwaya Kya Kaam ||
Who is Wise and Who is a Fool?
Currently, in a world of such drastically occurring changes there is nothing one can guarantee, forget about life. A person is said to be wise if He takes the refuge of the Almighty God Kabir upon gaining His True Spiritual Knowledge (Tatvgyan).
As declared by the Supreme God Kabir 600 years ago, the time has come, the Golden Age has begun for doing True Worship and attaining Salvation as He has sent His representative in easing our ways onto the path of salvation. So clearly this is a golden opportunity.
Who Can Help Us?
Currently, Saint Rampal Ji Maharaj has been sent by the Supreme God Kabir as His representative onto the holy land of Haryana, India. And has been giving us the recitation of mantras as being given by God Kabir and are matching the Holy Scriptures now.
As also predicted by famous foretellers including Nostradamus about a Chyren or World Victorious Saint who will commence the golden age and will deroot every bad element of the society, stands tall on Saint Rampal Ji Maharaj. Along with that He is the only one who is proving that His Spiritual Discourses and method of worship can end every sort of problem and guarantees salvation.
So it is very easy for a pious soul upon examining such proofs, to recognize what has been the reality since the oldest of the times. Hence one should not be late in taking Naam Diksha (initiation) from Saint Rampal Ji Maharaj.
