Tirthankaras, the Spiritual Scientists, are the highest, absolute, perfect Enlightened Beings. They have conquered all their inner enemies of anger, pride, deceit and greed and remain free from all the effects of attachments and abhorrence. The term Tirthankaras means ‘full moon’, having gained absolute ‘knowledge of the Soul’.

These Arihants (another name for Tirthankaras) purify the very ground they walk on, and where they have wandered have become abodes of worship. A Tirthankara’s speech is such that it does not hurt any living being, it is accepted by everyone who hears it, leaving the hearer in absolute bliss. Their state is the highest elevated state.

Tirthankaras remain in a state of constant eternal bliss. Their only intent is that all living beings attain permanent happiness and put an end to their suffering. This resolve of theirs never alters: it is constant from second to second. This intent is so powerful that anyone who experiences their devotional viewing face to face will receive final liberation – nirvana (the ultimate liberation from the perpetual cycle of birth and death)

In this current era, Arihants have ceased to take birth on our planet, however, they still take birth and dwell in another realm – Mahavideh Kshetra. There are twenty such perfect enlightened beings in the realm of Mahavideh. The first of the twenty Arihants is Shree Simandhar Swami who is closest to our world. Shree Simandhar Swami has a commitment to helping achieve the salvation of Earth.

With the absence of an Arihant on our planet, how can we attain this unique knowledge of the Self and attain Nirvana, the ultimate goal of liberation?

Only from a Gnani – an enlightened being who has attained the Knowledge of the Soul, and is gifted with the spiritual power to enlighten others. Only ‘A light that is already lit can light another light’. For example, if you have a ring made from a mixture of gold and copper and you want to extract the gold from copper then you will need to find a goldsmith because the goldsmith has the understanding and the knowledge. Similarly, if you want to acquire the knowledge of the Self, then you must find a Gnani - an enlightened being.

Such a Gnani exists on our planet!
Param Pujya Dada Bhagwan founded Akram Vignan a step-less spiritual science that sets out the path to attaining liberation through the process of Gnan Vidhi – Self-Realization in this current life. Upon attaining the Knowledge of the Self, you will experience freedom in all situations relating to the mind, speech, and body. Any type of circumstances good or bad will not affect you internally.

A state of complete bliss is experienced within irrespective of any turmoil experienced externally. Accomplishing final liberation – Moksha can only be achieved when all karmas are completely cleared and by devotional viewing of a living Tirthankara, Shri Simandhar Swami, who is currently residing in Mahavideh.

Param Pujya Dada Bhagwan has a direct connection with Shree Simandhar Swami. Although today, Param Pujya Dada Bhagwan has left His mortal body, He has blessed Pujya Niruma and Pujya Deepakbhai to continue the mission of world salvation. Currently, Pujya Deepakbhai is traveling in India and internationally to fulfill Param Pujya Dadashri’s heartfelt desire for world salvation.

Author's Bio: 

Ambalal M. Patel was a civil contractor by profession. In June 1958, spontaneous Self-Realization occurred within Ambalal M. Patel. From this point on, Ambalal became a Gnani Purush, and the Lord that manifested within him became known as Dada Bhagwan. A Gnani Purush is One who has realized the Self and is able to help others do the same. Param Pujya Dada Bhagwan used to go from town to town and country-to-country to give satsang (spiritual discourse) and impart the knowledge of the Self, as well as knowledge of harmonious worldly interactions to everyone who came to meet him. This spiritual science, known as Akram Vignan, is the step-less path to Self-realization.
