Aptavani 1” is the first in a series of spiritual books titled “Aptavani”. In this series, Gnani Purush (embodiment of Self knowledge) Dada Bhagwan addresses age-old unanswered questions of spiritual seekers.
Dadashri offers in-depth answers to questions such as: “Who am I?”, “What is our purpose in life?”, “What is the nature of the journey of souls?”, “Why do bad things happen to good people?”, “What does karma mean?”, “How was the world created?”, “Who is the ‘Doer’ (ego definition)?”
Dadashri also provides spiritual expositions on the topics of: “What is religion?”, “How to find God?”, “What is the difference in religion vs. spirituality?”, “How do you define spirituality?”, “How can I attain knowledge of Self?”, “How can I experience my own pure Soul?”, and “What is liberation?”
Ultimately, Dadashri describes how the knowledge of Self is the final goal of all seeking. Without Self knowledge, one cannot attain ultimate liberation, or moksha.
Ambalal M. Patel was a civil contractor by profession. In June 1958, spontaneous Self-Realization occurred within Ambalal M. Patel. From this point on, Ambalal became a Gnani Purush, and the Lord that manifest within him became known as Dada Bhagwan. A Gnani Purush is One who has realized the Self and is able help others do the same. He said that, “The same Lord, Dada Bhagwan exists in all living beings. The difference between you and me is that in me The Lord has manifested fully in me and he is yet to manifest in you.”
Param Pujya Dadashri used to go from town to town and country-to-country to give satsang (spiritual discourse) and impart the knowledge of the Self, as well as knowledge of harmonious worldly interactions to everyone who came to meet him. This spiritual science, known as Akram Vignan, is the step-less path to Self-realization.
