Note About This Translation
The Gnani Purush Ambalal M. Patel, also commonly known
as Dadashri or Dada, had said that it would be impossible to
translate his satsangs and the knowledge about the Science of
Self-Realization verbatim into English because some of the
meanings would be lost in the process. Therefore, in order to
understand precisely the science of Akram Vignan and Self-
Realization He stressed the importance of learning Gujarati.
Dadashri did however grant his blessings to translate his
words into English and other languages so that spiritual seekers
could benefit to a certain degree and later progress through their
own efforts.
This is a humble attempt to present to the world, the
essence of His Knowledge. This is not a literal translation but
great care has been taken to preserve His original words and the
essence of His message. For certain Gujarati words, several
English words or even sentences are needed to convey the exact
meaning; hence, many Gujarati words have been retained within
the English text for better reading flow. At the first encounter,
the Gujarati word will be italicized followed by an immediate
explanation of its meaning in brackets. Thereafter the Gujarati
word will be used in the text that follows. This serves as a two-
fold benefit: firstly ease of translation and reading and secondly
it will make the reader more familiar with the Gujarati words
critical for a deeper understanding of this science. A glossary of
all the Gujarati words is provided at the back of the book. For

Introduction to The Gnani
One June evening, in 1958 at around six o’clock, Ambalal
Muljibhai Patel, a family man, and a contractor by profession,
was sitting on a bench on the busy platform number three at
Surat’s train station. Surat is a city in south Gujarat, a western
state in India. What happened within the next forty-eight minutes
was phenomenal. Spontaneous Self-Realization occurred within
Ambalal M. Patel. During this event, his ego completely melted
and from that moment onwards, he became completely detached
from all of Ambalal’s thoughts, speech, and actions. He became
the Lord’s living instrument for the salvation of humankind, through
the path of knowledge. He called this Lord, ‘Dada Bhagwan.’
To everyone he met, he would say, “This Lord, Dada Bhagwan
is fully manifested within me. He also resides within all living
beings. The difference is that within me He is completely
expressed and in you, he has yet to manifest.”
Who are we? What is God? Who runs this world? What
is karma? What is liberation? Etc. All the world’s spiritual
questions were answered during this event. Thus, nature offered
absolute vision to the world through the medium of Shree Ambalal
Muljibhai Patel.
Ambalal was born in Tarasali, a suburb of Baroda and
was later raised in Bhadran, Gujarat. His wife’s name was Hiraba.
Although he was a contractor by profession, his life at home and
his interactions with everyone around him were exemplary, even
prior to his Self-Realization. After becoming Self-Realized and
attaining the state of a Gnani, (The Awakened One, Jnani in
Hindi), his body became a ‘public charitable trust.’
Throughout his entire life, he lived by the principle that
there should not be any commerce in religion, and in all
commerce, there must be religion. He also never took money
from anyone for his own use. He used the profits from his business
to take his devotees for pilgrimages to various parts of India.
His words became the foundation for the new, direct, and
step-less path to Self-Realization called Akram Vignan. Through
his divine original scientific experiment (The Gnan Vidhi), he
imparted this knowledge to others within two hours. Thousands
have received his grace through this process and thousands
continue to do so even now. ‘Akram’ means without steps; an
elevator path or a shortcut, whereas ‘Kram’ means an orderly,
step-by-step spiritual path. Akram is now recognized as a direct
shortcut to the bliss of the Self.
Who is Dada Bhagwan?
When he explained to others who ‘Dada Bhagwan’ is, he
would say :
“What you see here is not ‘Dada Bhagwan’. What you
see is ‘A. M. Patel.’ I am a Gnani Purush and ‘He’ that is
manifested within me, is ‘Dada Bhagwan’. He is the Lord within.
He is within you and everyone else. He has not yet manifested
within you, whereas within me he is fully manifested. I myself am
not a Bhagwan. I too bow down to Dada Bhagwan within me.”
Current link for attaining the knowledge of
Self-Realization (Atma Gnan)
“I am personally going to impart siddhis (special spiritual
powers) to a few people. After I leave, will there not be a need
for them? People of future generations will need this path, will
they not?”   ~ Dadashri
Param Pujya Dadashri used to go from town to town, and
country to country, to give satsang and impart the knowledge of
the Self as well as knowledge of harmonious worldly interaction
to all who came to see him. During his final days, in the fall of
1987, he gave his blessing to Dr. Niruben Amin and bestowed
his special siddhis upon her, to continue his work. “Y ou will have
to become a mother to this whole world, Niruben” He told her
as he blessed her. There was no doubt in Dadashri’s mind that
Niruben was destined to be just that. She had served him with
utmost devotion day and night for over twenty years. Dadashri

Should there not be some unfailing remedy for those who
are sincerely trying to move forward along the path of liberation?
There should be some remedy to successfully remove all
kashays (internal anger, pride, deceit, greed, attachment and
abhorrence) that hinder people every moment of their lives.
How is one to remove the gross and subtle conflict from his life?
How do we prevent ourselves from being hurt or hurting others?
How can we shelter ourselves from the kashays that bombard
us? How do we stop them from recurring?
Many of us have faithfully adhered to religious rituals. We
have surrendered ourselves to strict penance, fasting, meditation
and other such austerities, only to discover that we still make
mistakes through our mind, our speech and our conduct. Why
have we not found inner peace? What should we do when we
realize our faults and how should we get rid of them? There
should be some method through which we can eliminate
kashays from our lives and progress spiritually towards
liberation. Surely there should be a way to live happily with
peace and love. What spiritual knowledge have the Vitarag
Lords (the supreme enlightened Beings) bestowed upon the
world? What is true religion? Is there any assurance that one can
be absolved for the sins he commits? And if there is such a
method, why is it not evident?
One can attain an abundance of knowledge from scriptures,
but why can he not incorporate it into his daily life? Ascetics and
spiritual teachers continue to preach, but where do they fall short
in getting the desired results? Practically every religion mandates
stringent rituals and austerities, yet why does the aspirant not
achieve any results? Why do his kashays not decrease or his
sins erase? Does the liability for all this not fall upon the heads
of religion? This statement is not made with any malice, but with
compassion. There should be some way to eliminate our

in turn had molded her and prepared her to take on this
monumental task.
From the time of Pujya Dadashri’s mortal departure on
January 2 1988 to her own mortal departure on March 19
th
2006, Pujya Niruma as she lovingly came to be called by
thousands remained true to her promise to Dadashri to carry on
his mission of the world’s salvation. She became Dadashri’s
representative of Akram Vignan and became instrumental in
spreading the knowledge of Akram Vignan throughout the world.
She also became an exemplary of pure and unconditional love.
Thousands of people from all walks of life and from all over the
world have attained Self-Realization through her and are
established in the experience of the pure Soul, while carrying out
their worldly duties and obligations. They experience freedom
here and now, while living their daily life.
The link of Akram Gnanis now continues with the current
spiritual master Pujya Deepakbhai Desai whom Pujya Dadashri
had also graced with special siddhis to continue to teach the
world about Atma Gnan and Akram Vignan. He was further
molded and trained by Pujya Niruma who blessed him to conduct
Gnan Vidhi in 2003. Dadashri had said that Deepakbhai will
become the decorum that will add splendor to the Lord’s reign.
Pujya Deepakbhai, in keeping with Dada’s and Niruma’s tradition
travels extensively within India and abroad, giving satsangs and
imparting the knowledge of the Self to all who come seeking.
Powerful words in scriptures help the seeker in increasing
his desire for liberation. The knowledge of the Self is the final
goal of all one’s seeking. Without the knowledge of the Self
there is no liberation. This knowledge of the Self (Atma Gnan)
does not exist in books. It exists in the heart of a Gnani. Hence,
the knowledge of the Self can only be acquired by meeting a
Gnani. Through the scientific approach of Akram Vignan, even
today one can attain Atma Gnan, but it can only occur by meeting
a living Atma Gnani and receiving the Atma Gnan. Only a lit
candle can light another candle.
