Biography

Shri Sacha Baba Maharajji (Shri Hans Raj Maharajji) is a realized master whose ashram is to be found in the tiny village of Laxman Jhula, Rishikesh in India.

He is considered a saint of the Sachcha lineage and is reportedly dedicated to helping others in the spiritual transformation of consciousness (Parivartan in Sanskrit). It is said that since his enlightenment at 3th October 1955, he dedicated his life to this goal.

It is said that in December 2004, Rajarshi, one of his disciples, was in Hans Raj Maharaj's room, when his attendant Rameshj came to inform the guru that a very destructive tsunami had devastated the coasts of several countries in South-east Asia and the Indian ocean. He responded to that:

‘This dramatic event has been caused by men’s actions and thoughts. If only they could understand that and behave better! Otherwise I fear that worse may come. But, will they understand?’ ”

Teachings

Bhakti yoga - Through devotion, you enter into communion with the transcedental state of the Guru if your devotion is as great as Hanuman's then you become selfrealized through the grace of the Guru.

LOVE is GOD and GOD is LOVE.

LOVE is in the heart and everybody has a heart so everybody can realize GOD.

It is a mistake as one forgets to Be and strive after happiness, love, success, peace, oneness, enlightment, health, power and wealth because everything is already included in simply Being the Divine Lovelight that you already are for this universe.

A minimum of two or three hours a day should be devoted to God to be saved from coming disasters. This sadhana can be for example japa, satsangs, meditation on a verse from the Bhagavad Gita. Even one verse only communicates the essence of life. Do participate in satsangs.” [Guru Purnima Festival 2004]

These last thirty years, I have constantly been advising you to pray to God for at least an hour a day. My mission has nothing to do with any religion at all. It mainly consists in turning humanity to God, for that is the ultimate aim in life. Mahamaya can no longer wait to start the transformation of the world. In this process, only fifty-two per cent of the population will survive. This process has already started and we are now witnessing disasters all over the world, whether in the form of devastating floods like in Gujarat or elsewhere, tsunamis, or senseless violence, everywhere in the world.

Mahamaya will force people to turn to God by creating various problems through illnesses, personal tragedies, aeroplane crashes, natural disasters and similar things. We have asked Mahamaya to spare humanity from destruction from the atom bomb. August and September will be hard times.

I therefore insist once more on the fact that you must pray at least one hour a day. That is the only way to avoid these disasters. But what is dramatic is that nobody comes to me to find divine peace in his heart. You all come for me to solve your personal material problems. Turn to God and pray!!!” [Guru Purnima Festival 2005]
