About Sadguru Sadafaldeo Ji Maharaj
Morning shows the day and the child shows the man. This proverb exactly fits the case of Maharishi Sadguru Sadafaldeoji Maharaj, while still a child of two; he sat aloof on a wooden plank and his father, mother and other elderly members of his house to lay prostrate before him, as he was a great saint. Persons thought that the child was just making fun and they reverently touched his feet. The same boy when began going to school could continue his studies. He wanted to learn Sanskrit in order to know the secret of God realization by going through the ancient scriptures.
At the early age of eleven Sadguru Sadafaldeo Ji Maharaj went to Kashi to learn Sanskrit, but the scholars of Sanskrit in Kasi, who were Brahmins by caste, did not agree to impart him the knowledge of Sanskrit, as he hailed from a Kshatriya family. Being disappointed, boy Sadafal decided to practice Yoga, because he had heard that ancient saints and seers got invaluable and deep knowledge of every thing by practicing Yoga. As a result he sat in meditation practicing ‘Unmunimudra’ which Lord Krishna has taught in the Gita. Maharishi Sadguru Sadafaldeo practiced his first lesson of yoga for controlling mind continuously for three years. He sat in meditation in a secluded place in Sidhasana, a yogic posture, for six hours every day.
One night while Sadguru Sadafaldeo Ji Maharaj was meditating thus, he found that his room was filled up with effulgence. He also heard a sweet and soothing voice from the void. “This won’t lead you to attain the Supreme Lord, as this practice is based on material sense organs.” Sometimes while in a state of meditation, he felt that someone put one of the fingers on the uppermost point of his head. On opening his eyes, he found none there. He could not make out who had spoken so sweetly and who had touched his head with his finger. Later on when Swamiji began practicing yoga inside his cave at Vritikoot Ashram, Pakari, he met a saint with light effulging from him, in the early hours of morning in a lovely field. This saint initiated him into the conscious technique of Vihangam Yoga and instructed him not to come out of his cave before the public until a period of six months of ‘anusthan’ was complete. Swamiji later on realized that the saint he had met was not a common one. He was the Eternal True teacher, Nitya Anadi Sadguru. The Lord is Eternal and the way of realizing him is also eternal. As such the teacher teaching the scientific technique of realizing the Lord is also eternal. He is gifted with the power of materializing his body whenever he wills. He also appears in the physical form in all the four ages viz Satyuga, Tretaa, Dwapar and Kaliyuga and teaches the technique of Vihangam Yoga, the only way of God-realization, to deserving aspirants.
