-- After a long time of two years marked by COVID-19 lockdown, the DBF arranged a five-day, in-person event for celebrating the birthday of Late Shree Ambalal Muljibhai Patel, affectionately known as Param Pujya Dada Bhagwan or the Gnani Purush. Celebrated from 17th to 21st
November 2021 at the headquarters in Adalaj, Gujarat; the event was presided by Pujya Deepakbhai Desai, the current spiritual head of DBF.
Adhering strictly to the state's COVID-19 protocols, the morning and evening spiritually-
uplifting sessions, each was held in the physical presence of up to 500 spiritual seekers who came from different corners of the globe. Apart from that, hundreds of other seekers joined each session via the Akonnect app and YouTube.
On the day marking the birthday, Pujya Deepakbhai did the pujan of the Gnani Purush and gave a spiritual message to the seekers to follow. Then, He darshan to each seeker in person in the Dadanagar convention centre so that they can become pure and contribute significantly to the world's salvation.
Notably, one of these seekers was Shree Bhupendrabhai Patel, the new Chief Minister of the Gujarat who took blessings to perform all his political duties with purity.
The most attractive highlight seems to be Gnan Vidhi, a 2-hour ceremony for realizing one's own true Self (Soul). Although there was no cost or fee, the seekers were requested to come with humility and an open heart.
According to a seeker who attended this ceremony, "This ceremony started first by Param Pujya Dada Bhagwan is worth attending. People of all castes, creed, and religion can attend it to experience real happiness, which once attained, will never go. In this era of conflicts and violence due to which peace seriously does not prevail, gaining such a knowledge of eternal happiness is the most unique blessing."
