|| Om Shri Parmatmane Namah ||
A short introduction of Swamiji Shri Ramsukhdasji Maharaj
A liberated, enlightened, and devotee saint of this age,
Revered Swami Ramsukhdasji Maharaj was
born in a small village "Maadpura"
in the Nagore district of Rajasthan in
1904 A.D. (Vikram Samvat 1960) in the Vedic calendar
month of Falgun. In the young age of just 4 years, his mother made him an
ascetic (Saadhu). Fulfilling
the completely renunciate duties of an ascetic, he stayed on this
earth for an age of approximately 102 years and throughout his life, he
went from village-to-village and city-to-city and kept pouring the nectar
of satsang. Perhaps
no other saint has travelled across India to the extent to which he
travelled during his lifetime.
The prime objective of his life was
to stay away from personal propaganda and spread the divine messages ofGita only for the welfare of the people. Therefore he entirely stayed away from tasks such as
being photographed, getting his feet touched, making disciples, accepting
gifts or donations, accumulating money or things etc., building ashrams (monasteries),
making cults etc., and in this way neither did he establish any personal
relationship with any person, organization, cult, monastery etc., nor did
he appoint anyone as his disciple, propagator, or successor. Sustaining his
life merely through alms, he remained engaged in selflessly benefiting the
society through his mind, body, and speech throughout his life.
His sole aim was to find out how
mankind can be benefited (liberated) in the least possible time and through
the easiest possible method, and throughout his life he kept searching for
this one answer. In this context he discovered many
revolutionary, novel, and remarkable methods and spread them across the
masses through his discourses and articles. Without insisting upon any
opinion, argument, cult etc., he propagated only that which was his own
experience. He explained the deep, complicated and the most eminent
subjects of the spiritual path to the common man in an extremely simple
manner, so that an average literate man too can easily understand them and
can apply them in his life.
The very idol of Shrimad
Bhagavad Gita, Revered SwamijiMaharaj also
authored an unprecedented commentary on Gita titled 'Sadhak-Sanjivani', which is an outstanding gift from him
to the world. Other than this, he also authored several unparalleled texts
such as 'Gita-Darpan', 'GitaPrabodhani',
'Sadhan-Sudha-Sindhu' etc. The
lessons from the books, leave an immutable, irrevocable impression on the
readers, as these are not dependent on just scholarly writings, but are
based on experience rather than learning.
This glorious personage of the
world disappeared on July 3rd, 2005 (Aashadh Krishna 12, Vikram Samvat 2062)
on the banks of Ganga, Gita Bhavan, Swargashram(Rishikesh).
Completely rid of attachment, idol
of renunciation, Revered Swamiji Maharaj had
especially instructed that no one may write his biography. Therefore, this short introduction has been written only so that more
and more people can become acquainted with this great saint and thereby uplift themselves and benefit
from his discourses.
With deep reverence
