If you are one of those seeking to discover the ‘inner-self,’ reach higher planes of thought and deed and achieve the ultimate state of liberation, you could perhaps be a beneficiary attending a four-day seminar in Auckland next month.

A group of dedicated men are organising the visit of Pujya Deepakbhai Desai, known as a spiritual master whose lectures have inspired thousands of people around the world to reach their destination through the ‘Akram Path.’

The nightly programme, called ‘Satsang,’ will be held from September 30 to October 3.

According to Deepakbhai, direct ‘elevator’ path can enable people to achieve Self- Realisation without renunciation.

“You can continue to be a part of the materialistic world, carry on with your daily activities and still achieve liberation. You are not required to do any rituals or penance here. All you have to understand is your real self,” he said.

Early Enlightenment

Born and raised in a large family of eight children in Morbi (Rajkot District) Gujarat, Deepakbhai is said to have had a simple and calm disposition even as a child. Unlike children of his age, he was distant from the materialistic world and a meeting with Ambalal Patel, renowned as Gnani Purush (The Enlightened) and Dada Bhagwan and Dadashri in the late 1960s was a turning point in his life.

Inspired by his teachings and the “amazing, practical and scientific path to Liberation,” Deepakbhai believed that even ordinary people can achieve Self-Realisation, following simple practices in life.

He learnt that Self-Knowledge was the key to achieving the objective, and that the State of Liberation need not necessarily be at the expense of one’s family or professional life.

This concept has had its worldwide appeal and today thousands of men and women, irrespective of their religious beliefs, attend these Self-Realisation Seminars and promote them among their relatives, friends and colleagues.

The Akram Path

Deepakbhai himself demonstrated the fact that moving along the ‘Akram Path’ did not entail a total shift from worldly pursuits. He continued his scholastic life and obtained a graduate degree in Mechanical Engineering and later established his own consultancy practice in the discipline.

His expertise in the profession helped many textile mills in India to employ solutions to promote productivity and profitability.

His proclivity towards spiritualism became stronger over the years and the knowledge that he was able to share with others made him a master, with a number of eager followers. Among them was his own father, who told his children during the last hours of his life, “He is indeed my Guru. Deepak is doing the proper work and all of you must support him in achieving his goal.”

While Dadashri had an indelible impact on Deepakbhai’s early life, the influence of his successor Pujya Niruben Amin (Niruma) has also been substantial.

As well as spreading the message of Dadashri, Deepakbhai assisted Niruma in writing Gnanvani, “The words of Real Knowledge and The Awakened One.” His involvement included editing, publishing and distributing books, arranging Satsang programmes all over the world and helping people in their efforts to seek Self-Realisation.
