Last Updated on 1 February 2024 IST: 17 February Bodh Diwas (Initiation Day) of Sant Rampal JI Maharaj: 17th February 1988 is the day which is sacred to the entire mankind. And it will be written with golden words in the history books as it is the day the Great World Victorious Saint Rampal Ji Maharaj took Naam Diksha (initiation) from His Venerable GuruDev. Let us read the blog to know about Him in great detail. 

17 February Bodh Diwas 2024: Brief Life History of Saint Rampal Ji Maharaj

Saint Rampal ji Maharaj was born on 8th September 1951 in Village Dhanana, Tehsil Gohana, District Sonipat, Haryana. After completing diploma in civil engineering He was appointed as JE (Junior Engineer) in the irrigation department of Haryana Government and worked there for 18 years.  By birth, He was very keen regarding the identity of God and method of attaining Him. For that purpose, He worshipped Hanuman ji and treated Vishnu ji as Supreme God but never attained any sort of peace and satisfaction. 

Swami Ramdevanand Ji Changed the Course of History

17 February Bodh Diwas 2024: On the journey of attaining God, one day He met 107 year old Saint Swami Ramdevanand Ji Maharaj and discussed each other’s religious practices and beliefs. In that discussion He found out from the Knowledge of Swami Ramdevanand Ji that whatever He was guided to adopt (as a method of attaining God), was totally against the Holy Scriptures.

Bodh Diwas of Sant Rampal JI Maharaj: Forget about the practices, the identity of Supreme God Kabir wasn’t made to reach us, then how could anyone attain Supreme God? At first these statements by Swami Ramdevanad Ji sounded to be illogical to Saint Rampal Ji but upon studying Holy Scriptures He (Saint Rampal Ji) found that all the statements by Swami Ramdevanand Ji were true. And then He took Naam Diksha (Initiation) from him on 17th February 1988 for attaining God. That’s why Sant Rampal Ji Maharaj Bodh Diwas is celebrated by His devotees every year

How Did Saint Rampal Ji Maharaj Start Giving Naam Diksha (Initiation)?

Initially Saint Rampal Ji faced a lot of criticism from friends, family and nearby while obeying the orders of His Gurudev because His practices were opposite to the conventional method of worship followed in our society. But after analyzing the authenticity in the True Spiritual Knowledge of His Gurudev, He didn’t bother about these struggles. And He followed the scripture-based worship being given by His Gurudev. Along with this He studied Scriptures completely and started telling other people as well about Satan’s (Kaal Brahm) trap here. Further, He used to take willing people with Him to His Guruji for granting them Naam Diksha (Initiation).

Once in 1994, like an ordinary day He took some of the people for granting initiation from His Guruji, and upon seeing Him in the presence of various disciples Swami Ramdevanand Ji suddenly called Him and announced in front of everyone that:

“From now on Saint Rampal Ji Maharaj will give initiation to everyone”

and ordered everyone to accept Him as their Guru from then on. He got frightened then but Ramdevanand ji told Him that:

“Don’t worry, I will always be there with you, the Supreme Power is also there with you. And there won’t be a Saint matching your capabilities in the whole world.” 

It was a new and an unexpected responsibility for Him to handle but He had complete trust in His Guruji’s words. Ramdevanand Ji chose Him over others because He was the only one amongst all of them to demand salvation over any other comforts from Him. And that is the reason why Swami Ramdevanand ji considered Him above all. 

Bodh Diwas of Sant Rampal JI Maharaj Special: Swami Ramdevanand ji knew that it was a pre-planned move by Supreme Omnipresent God Kabir to send His pious soul in the form of Saint Rampal Ji Maharaj so as to expose the Kaal’s Trap to the entire globe as it was the predetermined period for it. Kabir Saheb has already declared about this period ( passing of 5500 years of Kalyug) in His sacred Kabir Sagar:-

Paanch sehs aru paanchsoo, Jab kalyug beet jaye |

Mahapurush Farman Tab, Jag Taran ko Aaye ||

After receiving the orders from His Guruji, Saint Rampal Ji Maharaj started preaching about Supreme God Kabir through His spiritual discourses (Satsang) at numerous places and started giving Naam Diksha (Initiation) as well, along with managing His Government Job. He used to go and narrate Satsang and perform the Sacred Path of Respected Garibdas Ji’s Granth Sahib Ji. 

It was in 1995, that with the effect of the True Spiritual Knowledge and grace of God, disciples multiplied. And consequently, it was becoming very difficult for Him to manage the Public Service Government Job with it. Hence He resigned from His Job by His own will and left His family in the hands of Supreme God Kabir in 1995 and dedicated His rest of the life completely in propagating the True Spiritual Knowledge and delivering Satsangs for mankind to expose Kaal’s Trap. 

The Meeting With Kabir Saheb

Sant Rampal JI Bodh Diwas (Initiation Day): In the year 1997, in the month of march, on the shukl pratham of falgun month at around 10am in the morning, Lord Kabir came from Satyalok (Eternal Place) and met Saint Rampal Ji Maharaj in the form of a Jinda Saint. He came and ordered Him to grant Satnaam and Saarnaam (as mentioned in Holy Geeta ji chapter 17 verse 23 in coded words) to the willing and deserving devotees and disappeared. It helps us in understanding that He is the actual, only and the true incarnation of Supreme God Kabir Himself sent by Him for us. 

Saint Rampal Ji Maharaj Did Something Which Was Assumed As Impossible

Being a Kabir Panthi Saint, initially He used to recite Tatvgyan (Satsang) using Holy Kabir Sagar and Holy Sat Granth Sahib Ji. But after the year 1999, to spread the knowledge into each and every religion, He, by the grace of Supreme God Kabir, studied the Holy Scriptures of all the religions that includes Holy Vedas, Holy Geeta ji, Holy Puranas, Holy Quran Sharif, Holy Bible, Holy Guru Granth Sahib etc. so as to check the authenticity of them as per the Suksham Veda (Holy Kabir Sagar) and found them stating the same. 

It was a moment of huge confidence and motivation for Him. And it has also exposed the extent upto which the false religious leaders and sages have made a fool out of their dedicated innocent disciples (which is obviously Kaal’s trap). Saint Garibdas ji from Haryana says:-

Garib, Pandit koti anant hai, Gyani koti anant |

Shrota koti anant hai, Birle Sadhu Sant ||

And thereafter He created the gist out of each and every Holy Scriptures (Tatvgyan) for all His pious souls. He urged people from around the globe to come, understand and get their welfare done by attaining Supreme God Kabir and end the brutal cycle of birth and death. 

Why 17 February Bodh Diwas of Saint Rampal Ji Maharaj Is Sacred for Mankind?

Saint Rampal Ji Maharaj is the one and only and the last messenger sent on this planet earth by the Supreme God Kabir so as to grant salvation and take our souls to our eternal abode Satyalok. It has been mentioned in Holy Geeta ji chapter 4:34 about the importance of a Tatvdarshi Saint. And so it helps us understand the sacredness of Bodh Diwas. 

Read in Hindi: 17 फरवरी बोध दिवस – सतगुरु संत रामपाल जी महाराज 

Both humans and animals are going after their food for all their lives but the one thing that makes a human different is the power to think and respond. Thus it helps us in understanding the main goal of this human life which is salvation and without it, everything else is useless. And it can only be fulfilled by acquiring a Tatvdarshi Saint as your Guru. And presently that Tatvdarshi Saint is none other than Saint Rampal Ji Maharaj. Kabir Saheb says:-

Manush janam paye kar jo nahi rate Hari Naam |

Jaise kuua jal bina fir banwaya kya kaam ||

We all know that God is one and still we are divided into religions, so why do people say God is one? Saint Rampal Ji Maharaj has broken all the shackles about the extent upto which people were misled and proved from our Holy Scriptures that Kabir is the Supreme God and Humanity is our religion. Therefore, He says:-

Our Race is Living Being, Mankind is our Religion |

Hindu, Muslim, Sikh, Christian, there is no separate Religion ||

The Identity of a Tatvdarshi Saint

Not only that Saint Rampal ji Maharaj is the only one who has been successful in explaining the creation of the universe to us with proofs from all Holy Scriptures. In accordance with Holy Geeta ji chapter 15 verse 1-4, He is satisfying the identity of a Tatvdarshi Saint. Saint Garibdas ji from Haryana says:-

Tatvbhed koi na kahe re jhumakra |

Paise upar nach suno re jhumakra ||

Kotyo madhyo koi nahi re jhumakra|

Aarbo mein koi Gark suno re jhumakra ||

Famous foretellers from around the World that includes Nostradamus, Florence, Jean Dixon and  Anderson from America, Chiero from England, Boriska from Hungary, Jaigurudev from India, and many others have predicted about a great leader that stands completely true on Saint Rampal Ji Maharaj who will propagate the path of true worship around globe with His spiritual discourses by removing all the false evils and will make this earth into heaven by beginning the Golden era

It is countless times that we have gone through the birth of 84 Lakh species of living beings and still we are left untouched with this path of worship that can end our hassle of birth and death here. And now when we are obtaining it with ease, we should take this opportunity with both of our hands. 

Kabir Saheb says:-

Lakh bar sura juj hi, Lakh bar savant deh |

Lakh bar yeti jahan mein, Tab Satguru Sharna lae ||

It is a Golden opportunity to make our human life successful. To obtain salvation, meet the everlasting God Kabir and go to our everlasting place Satyalok. Hence a pious soul should not waste this time and Take Naam Diksha (Initiation) from Saint Rampal Ji Maharaj. 

Garib, Samjha hai to sir dhar paav | Bahur nahi re aisa daav ||
