Summary

When the question, 'Who am I?', arises for a human being, his journey towards liberation begins. This is the most important question and quest for a human being. The one who responds to this question, even if casually asked, is being pointed towards the vast inner world of infinite vision and bliss of the Self. Those who find incomplete answers from their traditional religious and spiritual pursuits, ultimately come to this major milestone : 'Who am I?' What am I doing? What am I seeking?' Most of the search of a spiritual nature fails because one is not aware of the answer to the question : 'Who am I?' Without knowing who you really are, how can you decide what you want? Consequently what one ends up doing is wasting very precious time of human life in following what the mind body complex wants. The mind body complex is transient, changing and perishable and so all such efforts perish.

The answer to this question can not be arrived at through the intellect. Such an answer will not really sit within the questioner. One has travelled in countless number of bodies, human and other forms and has attained this precious body which now allows the time to pause and ask this question: 'Who am I?' 'Is this mine?' What is this mind? Am I this mind? Am I this hand that is moving about? Am I this body? Many advanced level seekers have tried to inquire into this, deeply; but they get stuck in different layers of the mind and the intellect, and find no success. This is because this question: Who am I? is the final question of man. Once he attains an experiential answer of who he is, he becomes eternal, free, never to be born again, beyond birth and death.

Now comes Gnani Purush Dadashri, whose words are to begin for you. He will become alive for you, as you read the satsang that will begin soon. Sat means eternal. Sang means company. It is in the company of the eternal One, the One who has experienced the eternal, that the meaningful answer to the question begins to be understood and then experienced. If you were to paint a thousand candles on a large piece of paper, there will be no light. A single lit candle will be able to give light and let you see in the dark.

Rare indeed are the souls in this world who lead you towards the bliss of the Self called moksha. Even more rare than these are the scriptures that describe the Self and show the ways to attain the Self. Even more rare than these are the Self realized masters who have attained the Self. An encounter with an Enlightened Master, an Atma Gnani and the consequent unfolding of the true desire for liberation within a seeker is extremely rare. The most rare of all is the direct establishment of The State of The Self, Self Realization within the seeker, at such a meeting. The core messages of innumerable scriptures have been given for the express intent of the attainment of the Self, the natural State of the Self. Self realization is the goal of human life. The Gnani Purush's words have the unparalleled power to make you interested in the pure Soul, awaken your pure love for the pure Soul, and eternally establish your conviction that You indeed are the pure Soul.

A Gnani Purush is one who is absolutely free from his mind, body and speech. He moves about in the world for only one purpose. To allow others to also attain that state. The state of complete freedom from all pain of life; mental, physical or externally induced. Such a One is Gnani Purush Dadashri, who has given the world the new easy path of liberation called Akram Vignan. It begins with this cardinal book: Who am I?

The quest for the end to all suffering begins with 'who am I?' and ends permanently with the answer. So here then is the Book that will commence your liberation. It will happen If you allow the words that have come through the medium of the Gnani Purush, to begin that for you.

    There is more to life than just living. There has got to be more to life than just living. In life, there should be a higher purpose, and that is to obtain the real answer to, ‘Who am I?’ This is the unanswered question of infinite, previous lives. The missing links of the search for ‘Who am I?’ are now being provided through the words of the Gnani Purush (The One who is completely Self-realized). These words are edited for the purpose of comprehension.

    Who am I? What am I not? Who is the Self? What is mine? What is not mine? What is bondage? What is moksha (liberation)? Is there a God? What is God? Who is the ‘doer’ in the world? Is God the ‘doer’ or not? What is the real nature of God? What is the nature of the real ‘doer’ in this world? Who runs the world? How does it function? What is the real nature of illusion? Whatever one knows is it real or is it an illusion? Will one become free or remain bound with the knowledge he has?

    This book will provide the precise understanding of the truth behind these questions. In addition, the reader of these pages is introduced to the essence of Akram Vignan (the science of direct experience of liberation).

    NOTE ABOUT THIS TRANSLATION

    Ambalal M. Patel, Gnani Purush, also commonly known as Dadashri or Dada, always used to say that it is difficult to precisely translate his satsang about the Science of Self-realization and the art of worldly interaction, into English. Some of the depth of meaning would be lost. He spoke about the importance of learning Gujarati to precisely understand all his teachings.

    Dadashri did however; grant his blessings to convey his words to the world through translations in English as well as other languages.

    This is a humble attempt to present to the world, the essence of the teachings of Dadashri, the Gnani Purush. A lot of care has been taken in order to preserve the tone and message of the satsang. This is not a literal translation of his words. Many people have worked diligently for this work and we thank them all.

    This is an elementary introduction to the vast treasure of his teachings. Please note that any errors encountered in the translation are entirely those of the translators.

    Introduction of The Gnani

    On a June evening in 1958, at approximately 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 of 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 happened within Ambalal M. Patel. During this event, his ego completely melted and from that moment onwards he became completely detached from Ambalal’s thoughts, speech, and acts. He became the Lord’s living instrument for the salvation of mankind, through the path of knowledge.
