MATA KRISHNA




40 days was Mata Krishna keeping in fast with the purpose that their children were True Gurus and illuminates to us. When Swami Teunram and Swami Gwalanand were still children, she sat down with them in their childhoods to sing bhajans and to mill the wheat.

She got up at 4 in the morning and sang the bhajans of Dada Assandas y Dada Khabir, in this way she began her days. With a lot of affection, when the saints came to her residence, she gave them sacred food and all of them received sacred teachings. Seeing this whole devotion, Swami Teunram sang: "Ama raji kie indo..."

SWAMI GURMUKHDAS JI MAHARAJ




NEXTLY!

 

SWAMI JAI PRAKASH




His name was Moturam. Swami Sarvanand ji Maharaj, wrote a book in Sindhi, that was called "Shikar Dhuj Churala", at his home, in Shikarpur. . It is a very famous history that shows many lessons.. He was very appreciated by Sai Sarvanand.

Moturam worked at Goverment department, he left allthis works seeing the light of Sai Teunram. After the partition, Sai Teunram in a dream came to him and said to him that he opened a Darbar, in 1948.

When he was in Delhi, they made the sat sangs in a cabin. The government, sent an order to destroy it, but Swami Jai Prakash refused to leave it. While they were trying to destroy it, they broke of accidental form a pipe, all were scared. And it was Sai Jai Prakash that requested to Guru Maharaj that fixed all the flood, thus was as all soon they surrendered on the feet of Satguru Maharaj.

BIRTH CENTENARY YEAR 2001-2002

Most revered Yogiraj Acharya Satguru Swami Teoonram Ji established Prem Prakash Sect. It is a magnificent and wonderful organisation which is unique in the present day world and leaves its special imprint on minds of human beings. This Sect armed with KARMA, BHAKTI & GYANA has produced noble persons who have through their selfless lectures guided innumerable wavering souls on to the glittering path of realisation of eternal God.

Amongst this grand galaxy of great souls of this Sect is one wondrous man whom Delhities and entire Saintly brotherhood knows by the name of SWAMI JAI PARKASH. Revered Swami leads an illustrious and hard working life. Swami Ji was born at Gari Yasin in Shikarpur (SIND) during Vikrmi Samvat 1957 Ashvin Shukal Troydashi, 30th June 1901. The name of Poojya Swamiji’s father was Shri Bahvari Ram and name of his mother was Smt. Adni Bai. Since his expired during childhood of Swami Ji, as such he could get education only upto Primary level. Swamiji got an appointment as Inspector in the Municipality.

ENLIGHTNMENT CALL – MEETING WITH SATGURU SWAMI TEOONRAMJI MAHARAJ

Ever since his childhood Swami Jai Prakash ji was devoted and dedicated to Bhakti of God. With passage of time however his belief in God reached its zenith. Swamiji was once listening to Satsand being conducted by Satguru Maharaj, and at that time, Guru Maharaj called Swamiji nearby and enquired, will you devote your life in service to the God? Listening it, Swamiji said that I shall consider myself extremely lucky in carrying out your directives. Swamiji was thereafter, engaged as "Sewadar". By continuously engaging himself in servive and also because of some miraculous and unforgetable events, his devotion towards Satguru Maharaj became more and more intense and after some time he left the Government job and devoted himself to the Lotus Feet of Satguru Maharaj.

They say Thirst is enough to lead one to Sea. Swami Teoonram Ji appeared before Swami Jai Parkash in his dreams/sleeplessness. On account of it Swami Jai Parkash felt overjoyed and his devotion intensified further manifold. Pursuant to it he cbegan to devote himself intensely into glittering image of the Guru. His household name was Shri Motu Ram. Satguru Swami Teoonram Ji rechristened him as Swami Jai Parkash after adopting him as his disciple. While he was asleep Guru Ji appeared before him in his dream and exhorted him to leave Sindh. Following the dictate of Guru, he did so.

After leaving Sindh, Jai Parkash Ji reached Ahmedabad, City of Gujarat. There he organised a Mela (Fair) commemorating Swami Teoonram Ji. Subsequently, he reached Haridwar on the occasion of Inauguration of Prem Prakash Asharm in the year 1948.

On that occasion Bhai Jetha Nand Ji had arrived from Delhi. On the orders of Revered Satguru Swami Sarvanand Ji (2nd Mandleshwar) , Swami Jai Parkash Ji reached Delhi with Bhai Jetha Nand Ji in accordance with the will and wishes of Guru Maharaj. In the beginning Swami ji stayed at the residence of Bhai Jethanand. It was here that he first organised Prem Prakash Satsang Mandali. With time, the number of devotees grew so much slo, that space constraints began to be felt. There was no wide and broad place adjacent to this place for accommodating large gathering and as such, Swamiji reached Shakti Nagar in quest of a relatively more spacious venue for Bhakti. He perched a Bamboo at the site to commemorate the place for Bhakti. Next morning, much to his surprise he found that Bamboo etc had disappeared from the spot. Immediately thereupon, he imagined that Guru Maharaj Ji’s wishes perhaps had not found favour with the chosen place of Bhakti/Devotion. However, he did not loose heart as those who have firm faith in God leave everything to God. In such cases, God himself acts on their behalf as averred by Lord Krishna in Geeta ‘YOGKHESHMA VAHAMAYAM"

In his continued search of place of devotion, Swami Ji reached ‘Malka Ganj’

ESTABLISHMENT OF PREM PRAKASH DHAM AT MALKAGANJ

History of Prem Prakash Dham established in Malka Ganj area of Subzi Mandi is 50 years old. Swami Jai Parkash Ji made Prem Parkash Temple in the form of humble Jhuggi/Dwelling site. But God willed otherwise, since the place where temple was made belonged to a school, hence the place had to be abandoned. Then again he built a new temple, a little away from that place and started Bhajan Kirtan there. It is said that there are many detraction in Missionary work, but devoted souls bear all these obstacles as the Will of God and continue to follow the path of Bhakti relentlessly to ultimately attain success. Later, the second site was realised to be that of a Gurudwara.

As such Swamiji abandoned this site as well. He resolutely pursued the dictate of Satguru that he has to establish a site into a temple where people could quench their thirst of Satsang. As such ultimately he ended up at the place where the present day Building of Newly Constructed Magnificent Asharam stands with pride. To start with he built two Pakka rooms here. The Delhi Government did not approve of this site and served Notices for its demolition. Govt officials tried to Bulldoze these rooms with the help of a Tractor. Now the opportunity had arrived, when worldly obstacles in the erection of Ashram were ebbing out .

The time had come, when sacrifice of great sages was ready to materialise into the worldly sense. Those who had seen this action of Govt on the sight, tell that time and again when that tractor was brought round to raze those rooms to ground, the nozzle of that tractor used to stick into the water pipe and the entire demolition operation used to come to a stick into the water pipe and the entire demolition operation used to come to a halt. Entire populace of adjoining areas was also opposed to this uncooperative attitude of administration which led the Administration to succumb to the pressures of according approval to the Temple construction. Upon this welcome decision of Government, well wishers gathered at the site and rended the air with Jai Jai Kaar of Satguru Maharaj Ji.

Ever since Death Anniversary and Birth Celebration of Satguru Swami Teoonram Ji Maharaj are organised every year in Prem Prakash Dham with great fervour devotion. Besides this, Janamashtmi, Annual Function is also celebrated and CHOUTH of Shri Guru Maharaj is organised on Monthly basis. On Saturdays and on the occasion of CHOUTH pure PRASAD OF DHODHA CHATNI is distributed amongst Devotees/visitors.

DISSEMINATION OF UNIVERSAL TRUTH

After some time Swamiji thought that Satguru Swami Teeoonramji Maharaj has created a lot of Holy Verses and that has been consolidated into Prem Parkash Granth. In spite of this, Satuguru Maharaj used to quote many pious things from the VERSES written by other Great Saints, as such he resolved to write some VERSES averred by other great Saints besides the astonishing feets shown by Satguru Maharaj in Delhi. Ultimmately during the year 1963-64 Swamiji wrote GYAN SAGAR PART-I & II and dedicated these books to Lotus Feet of Satguru Maharaj. Still, he was not at rest.

In the year 1965, he wrote GYAN SAGAR PART-III. In this book Swamiji has enumerated the ways and techniques to create peace in one’s mind for the sake of human beings. He also wrote SHALOKAS of SAKI averred by Saguru Maharaj. Over and above Swamiji wrote very nice stories to educate the people so that by following those
ideals, people could transform their lives into ideal ones.

CONFLUENCE WITH ALMIGHTY

Poojya Swami Ji left his wordly body on 1st Dec 1975 at the holy feet of Acharya Satguru Maharaj and that too at Jaipur, Guru Asthan. We humbly bow before the feet of our beloved Swami Jai Parkash ji Maharaj.

On every Saturday, in the evening satsang, Swami Chandan Prakash used to distribute "Dhodho-Chatani" as prasad. Once there was a scarcity of jowar.

On one Saturday, there was no jowar in the Mandir. One of the devotees had gone to different shops for jowar but could not get it anywhere. He told Swami Chandan Prakash that he had failed to get it. Swami Chandan Prakash told him. "Don't worry. God will send jowar'. At 3.00 p.m, an unknown man came to the Mandir and brought three tins of jowar flour. At that time some devotees were in the Mandir. They were astonished to see this. They were worried about jowar and God had sent the same prasad.
