17 February Bodh Diwas: 17th February 1988 is the day which will be written with golden words in the history books because 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 2021: 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.
17 February Bodh Diwas 2021: On the journey of attaining God, one day He met 107 year old Saint Swami Ramdevanand Ji Maharaj and discussed about 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.
Forget about the practices, the identity of Supreme God Kabir was not made to reach us, then how could anyone attain Supreme God? At first these statements by Swami Ramdevanad Ji sounded to be without logic 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 took Naam Diksha (Initiation) from him on 17th February 1988 for attaining God.
How Did Saint Rmapal JI Maharaj Start Giving Naam Diksha (Initiation)?
Initially upon following these true practices told by His Gurudev, being opposite to the society’s conventional rituals, He faced a lot of criticism from family, friends and nearby but having gained the Tatvgyan about God completely, He didn’t bother about them. After taking initiation, Saint Rampal Ji Maharaj followed the Scripture based worship given by His Guruji Swami Ramdevanand Ji Maharaj. Along with this He studied Scriptures completely and started telling other people as well about Kaal’s trap here and used to take willing people with Him to His Guruji for granting them Naam Diksha (Initiation).
Once in 1994, like 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 rather than any other comforts from Him. Hence He was the only capable one for such a responsible post.
Saint 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 ||
What He Did After Receiving the Orders Of Giving Naam Diksha (Initiation)?
After 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 Paath of Respected Garibdas Ji’s Granth Saheb Ji.
It was in 1995, that with the effect of the True Spiritual Knowledge and grace of God, disciples multiplied. And consequently, it was very difficult to manage the Public Service Government Job with it. Hence He left His Job and family on the hands of Supreme God Kabir in 1995 and dedicated His rest of the life completely in propagating the True Spiritual Knowledge and doing public Satsangs for the mankind to expose Kaal’s Trap.
17 February Bodh Diwas 2021: In the year 1997, in the month of march, on the shukl pratham of falgun month at 10am in the morning, Lord Kabir came from Satyalok and met Saint Rampal Ji Maharaj in the form of a Jinda Saint and ordered Him to grant Satnaam and Sarnaam (two of the three stages of Naam Diksha (initiation)) to the capable devotees and disappeared. And 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.
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 Saheb 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 pious souls from around the globe to come, understand and get their welfare done so as to attain 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 in understanding the sacredness of Bodh Diwas to us.
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 make a human different is the power to think and respond and so it helps us in understanding the main goal of this human life which is salvation and without it, everything is useless. And as a result of which there arises the need to find a Tatvdarshi Saint who 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, then why 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
Not only that Saint Rampal ji Maharaj is the only one who has been successful in explaining the creation of universe to us with proofs from all Holy Scriptures and in accordance with Holy Geeta ji chapter 15 verse 1-4 and thus exposing the false theories about creation of universe from false priest and sages around the globe. And so He does stand tall on the identity of a Tatvdarshi Saint and True representative of Supreme God Kabir. 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 Mr. 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 propogate 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 pass the birth of 84 Lakh species of animals and still we didn’t meet with that Tatvdarshi Saint who 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 ||
