Experiences After the Gnan Vidhi
Of Gnani Purush Dadashri
My experience after receiving The Gnan Vidhi of Gnani Purush Dadashri from Deepakbhai
Can this really be happening? Gnan is a gift from another world. All of my adult life I sought a life free of existential suffering. Last week it was given in a ceremony in less than an hour. My wife and I are like fresh innocent kids living in bliss. Business pressures can't touch me because there's no "me" to touch! Several of our friends received Gnan at the same time. While our experiences are unique, radical and touching there is a common theme…an unimaginable, pure love caused the transformation. Actually, it IS the transformation! We keep calling each other during the day to compare notes. We usually end up laughing from the heart until tears come. It really is happening, and without effort. A gift of realization was given. Humbling. What we feel in our hearts goes far beyond gratitude.
As for Charan Vidhi…I am going to guess that many Western seekers will resist it thinking that it may simply be the usual rituals of devotional worship that they grew up with in their various traditions. While I certainly don’t know how the transmission of living knowledge of Dada and Simandhar Swami gets transferred from via Deepakbhai to the recipient, it seems that the same phenomenon happens over and over with Charan Vidhi. People need to know that is the case.
Bye for now

Jeff who is active in this path in Southern California, has added the following on June 13, 2008
year has passed since receiving Gnan in June 2007. The day following the
ceremony the sense was, “Can this really be happening…Gnan seems like a
gift from another world.” The extreme degree of pure awareness
following the 48-minute ceremony was more than palpable…I was neither the
body nor the mind. A deep recognition was present that this was not another
fleeting experience. The best way to describe it is that I WAS pure awareness.
All was unfolding as usual to the body-mind complex but it was not touching
awareness. For the first few weeks following Gnan Vidhi several of us who
received it together kept checking in to compare notes. Most times we ended up
laughing in an amazed gratitude. It was all happening without effort.
is it now that a year has passed? The initial, extreme height of pure
awareness has blended in, to become more like a sky through which clouds are
passing. I think of them as subconscious programs coming up for final
deletion. Akram Vignan would call them “discharging karma.” The
nomenclature doesn’t matter – what does is that their departure is
constant and is aided by knowing that each one was there because of something
the “little me” once did to cause them.
pure awareness silently runs in the background like anti-virus software; bugs
are continually revealed and deleted. The ability to fully see them for what
they are, rather than getting into blaming person or circumstance, lets them
go. Without the heightened awareness, they might silently run like an open
program, exerting subtle influences. As more of them leave, the brightness of
awareness and peace grows, and the “still small voice” becomes louder.
few months after the ceremony the intensity of the awareness seemed to fade as
more and more bugs appeared. I started to wonder if it was all just ‘too
good to be true.’ As I hung around and listened to Deepakbhai explain the
science of it all, and as other helpers in the Dada group shared their
experiences, I began to understand the continuous, cleansing way in which Gnan
still feels very much like it is out of this world while at the same time it
now feels like home. If I traveled one thousand miles before the Gnan Vidhi in
the journey home, by comparison it feels like one million in the last year.
heartfelt appreciation goes out to Deepakbhai for his unfathomable purity and
commitment to us all. Thank you very, very much.
