Biography

Endearingly called 'Bapuji', His Holiness is a Self-Realized Saint from India.

He was born in Berani village of the Nawab district in Sindh (Un-Partitioned India) on the sixth day of Chaitra month (Hindu Calendar), 17 April 1941 (Gregorian calendar), as Aasumal. His father was a wealthy businessman named Thaumal Sirumalani and his mother was Mehngeeba. He was named Asumal.

When Asumal was three years old the spiritual teacher of their family, Shri Parasuramji Maharaj, visited their house and professed that this boy Asumal is not an ordinary child & he will be a great saint and show light of spiritualism to people living in ignorance.

At a very young age Asumal lost his father and the family business started dwindling. Asumal had to discontinue his education and help in the family's business along with his elder brother.

After his father's demise Asumal increased the time for mediation and realized that God alone is one reality & essence of life. His concentration increased greatly due to regular, pure meditation and unknowingly all siddhis (mystical powers) attended upon him at the tender age of ten years. No one could stop the fire of renunciation that was enveloping him completely. As Asumal grew into youth his meditation and search for Truth intensified.

Asumal's growing detachment to the world worried his family and they decided to get him married.

After getting married, he decided one day to leave home and to wander for the search of god.

Asumal went from place to place and at nights slept on the grass, homeless and alone. He did intense spiritual practices in deep forests, on hills, in deep caves, in various great temples.

Asumal then went to Vrindavan, the land of Lord Krishna. Here he was inspired to goto the ashram of the Great Guru, Swami Sri Lilashahji Maharaj. He had to wait for 40 days in the Ashram to get the glimpse of Gurudev. There he stayed and served his Sadguru with true devotion.

From there Asumal reached Bombay (Mumbai) and met Gurudev Lila ShahJi Maharaj. On 2nd Day of Ashwin month in Samvat 2021 at 2.30pm in the afternoon Asumal was transformed into Sant Sri AsaramJi Bapu by the blessings of Sadgurudev Shri Lila ShahJi Maharaj. After this Asaramji went into samadhi for the next two and a half days.

truth

dont take it as critism but the fact is he is not a satguru,you can call him saint,he preches good in society.the defination of satguru is "nana panth jagat main nij nij gun gave sabka saar bata kar guru marag lave" you have written that he is in linage from kabir,but kabir was the perfect master of his time.full fill his words dont just say or write his name."guru ji ko kijiye dandwat pranamm keet na jane bharang ko guru karle aap samaan"satguru makes his deciple similar to him self knowledgable.

You are just giving the

You are just giving the theoretical definition of SatGuru, But crores of followers are experiencing the divinity of Param Pujya Sant Shri Asaramji bapu . Crores of people with pin-drop silence can never occurs with out experiences .

People do not visit only for discourses , discourses can be listened on TV , VCD or online , there is something else which is attracting people . Firstly investigate & then say anything about anyone. And a Guru can only say the greatness of Guru , we can only say little bit about HIM

Beyond Truth

Don't try to measure Saint, Gurus by ur brain. They are not a subject to measure by our brains specifiely urs. I think u completely unknown from bapuji. First measure urself that how u r spiritually complete or true. I'm not going to arguing with u. You need to read Bapujis "Yuvadhan Suraksha" OR "Divya Prerana Prakash" Books. If u want this books just mail me on "Mjadhor@gmail.com". DON'T BOOKISH BE CONSCIOUS FOR VAIDIK SPIRITUAL WORLD

Hero's Role

However, false Gurus look for hero’s role
By maya, each is caste in a joker’s role.
Before God’s children, each is a talking doll,
A crane cannot become a swan whatever you cajole.

A Guru Goes According To His Karmas

Because of Asaram karmas or actions he is in jail.
The wise saying, "Like father; like son." proved in the case of his son. Everybody knows about this. I don't need to write here.

Re: He just doesnt only tells

Yes, he doesn't only tell stories but also participates in them well. Because of his examples he is in jail. Hope you don't follow his example.
"Do what Guru says but never what Guru does" is well applicable here.

@ master story teller

Just like Swami Ram tirth, Aaddya Shankaracharya, Lord Buddha, Gyaan Dew and many more. First develop your understanding to discriminate between a self realized saint and a story teller.
