We would read the Gyan on the website, but found nothing new or interesting because we had experienced much of what had been said. We recognised immediately that this Dassan Dass person was a gifted being, but neither that nor his experiences swayed us.
We have performed acts that you would expect in a comic book, seen visions that will astound, and experienced so much, what we have written is only a glimpse to our Bhagti.
We only wanted to know how to get out of this Maya. We had no trust for anyone, even the Sant betrayed us in the end- how could we learn to trust again.
We had no relationship with our family, nor cared for the whole family values idea, the Truth was more important to us.
We had received a vision of our-self high in the Himalaya meditating on a wooden vessel opposite a Buddhist monk. We was in Anand, real anand, we was at Peace within our self.
We carried on meditating when we awoke from the astral sleep to ask : do want us to go here God? Tell us and we will go we have no fear.
During meditation, we heard a voice, “just get up and go”
Our first contact with Dassan Das Ji on 27th June 2008: we had written to him asking advice, as we was ready to leave for the mountains immediately. His email came a few weeks later, we waited and waited for him, he told us there is no place of pilgrimage.
His email was short and we could not accept it. We went anyway, it took many days of travelling 10-13 hour days, but we got there in the end. We went alone, we was interrogated by the army, but we carried on, no fear, no nothing. And then we arrived we bowed to the Lake of the Vision. We set our-self one mission, either we come back with the Truth or we die there until we find the Truth.
We had entered the Buddhist quarter of the earth, and many came to us during our travels. They wanted to know what an outsider was doing there, wherever we went was not for tourists. They took great interest in us, they wanted us to meditate with them, they wanted to read us, but we carried on. They called us one of the few titles of Buddha, our face physically changed shape to the appearance of the Buddha they spoke of which drove them wild, they became adamant that we was theirs but we carried on to our location of solitude.
One Buddhist who was persistent, you are the Buddha!!, he even told us that the Realized One took realization in the very place where we was going.
He caught us off guard, because our vision was of a specific Buddhist monk sitting in meditation on the lake. We kept this thought with us- he was adamant Buddha had returned.
We remained quiet because, we never came to glorify our name, only to glorify the Truth, we never came to seek Fame, only to share Truth with the world. As we said before, we would gladly set fire to our face to take away our image. Truth is the only one that should be glorified.
On reaching our destination, we had to pass through no-go areas, even mine fields. We got there and began the Bandgi. The Land was beautiful the views were Postcard Friendly. We realized the second we reached the destination this is not the place we will find God. We were so high up from sea level there was very little oxygen we began to die.
If any of you think hemkund is hard of oxygen, we was even higher. We stopped the Naam Jaap and listened to the water of the lake, he wasn’t out their on the water nor in the mountains, he was within our heart, the pilgrimage is within our heart.
God is within our heart, our pilgrimage should be within, no destination can gift you the Truth.
We was to go further and sit under the water but all the Bhagti lost meaning, our understanding had changed- We can play games doing penances or we can become Truth.
We saw the Bhagti in a new light, we gave up on our knowledge and laid on our back. We woke up an hour or so later, to find our-self in the back of broken down jeep, heavily dazed with hypothermia from washing in the freezing water and deprived of oxygen, we was fading quickly. We could hear voices, our vision was blurred, our head was hanging out of the open the door. They was shouting in the local tongue, they could not fix the jeep, and they were hours from any village and too high up to survive the elements and oxygen. We did not care anymore, and laid still. We looked at the world through vision of the mind, and thought who will save these fools if it is not us. we still felt the weight of the world on our shoulders.
We had to help them, we learnt the dialect while travelling and asked what is happening. They was shouting at each other in panic, the car won’t start, we focused our energy to the engine and said Satnaam, the car started at the next turn of the key. They cheered and we was taken to a remote village high in the mountains. We awoke many-many hours later, we went through many stages of Hyporthermia- it wasn’t pleasant.
The next morning, we walked around the village, Maya had come to the village but had not taken Raj. And because the village was living in Truth – free from attachments, desires, petty requirements, anger, ego we felt at home. But it wouldn’t be too long before Society ruins this place, for there is no sanctuary in Kal Yug. We are capable of living in Heaven on Earth, but the Egoist mind of Society will not let it happen. The young Gods see themselves too smart for their own Good, fools they are, fools among fools who sell foolish ideals.
We could of returned home with anger and given up on bhagti. But that glimpse of heaven in that village kept us calm.
Over the course of the days to come, we re-tracked our journey back to the city in the low valleys of the Himalaya, coming across the Buddhists, they asked for us again, the monks were keen to take us to meet the High Priest at a secluded monastery- but we are in way the Buddha- we are just a student like them. We told them, “next-time” -we will return to educate them once we realize the Truth in all its glory. We did not dismiss them completely but their requests became too much, they wanted to take pictures of us and pray to us, but we would not accept. Pray to the Truth!
We returned home, this email was sent to Dassan Das Ji :
Dear Compassionate Dassan Das Ji,
Tears fall from my face, I pushed my self to my physical limit, I have returned so weak. You’re right I have no real wisdom, it is all scholarship (through reading). The divine wisdom is blessed through Naam Jaap and complete surrender to the Akal Purakh.
I have loved God from the day I could think, this great all mighty being that blessed us with ability to achieve a sense of infinite, achieved via the system of choice. It is a mesmerizing Creation, I am lost for words thinking about it, even now.
Kal jogh is run by illusion of expectations of the ‘Image’ society.
I have been laughed at and persecuted with foul language and insults but I carry on saying Satnaam.
I read Guru Nanak Scriptures, he spoke of how lucky man is when he ages he is served by the youth- Allow me to ‘serve my elder’.
I am laughing now, at the ego that has complete power over Kal Yug.
I will say Satnaam in this life and the next, please Slave Dassan Das help me. Ask God if I have repaid at least some of my Karni. Was I so evil? I resent my self for whatever actions I did in the past. I can’t think of my well-read mind of the word to describe my want for forgiveness.
I beg the Akal Purakh, to clear my debt, I am on my knees! I’m trying, then the giant of Kal Yug kicks me 100’s of feet backwards and it has repeated in motion since the age of 12yrs old. The time my life went down the drain.
I remember as a child, I believed my meditation would turn me into a warrior so I could end Kal Jogh, I had visions I am the Son of a Dark Goddess, but I turned against her and ran into this Khand to find Mukti from her and achieve Chardi Khala with our true Lord… Satnaam! I truely believed, and strangely even still, I believe I will be part of the reformation of Sat Yug
Now I find myself grazing my knees, crawling on the floor struggling to carry the huge weight of debts of my Karni.
I bow to you Slave Dassan Das, you overcame this.
Dassan Dass Ji’s response:
GOD LIVES RIGHT IN YOUR HIRDA, HE LIVES RIGHT IN YOUR BREATH, IN YOUR VEINS RUNNING YOUR BLOOD, RUNNING YOUR BRAIN, RUNNING EVERY BIT OF YOU, ALL YOU HAVE TO DO IS TO REALIZE HIM INSIDE YOU, THERE IS NO PLACE OUTSIDE YOU WHERE YOU CAN FIND HIM, YOU HAVE TO FIND HIM WITHIN YOUR OWNSELF, ONCE THATHAPPENS THEN YOU WILL SEE HIM EVERY WHERE. THE POWER THAT IS RUNNING YOUR PHYSICAL BODY IS THE DIVINE SUPER POWER AND NOTHING ELSE. SO WHY WERE YOU LOOKING TO FIND HIM SOMEWHERE ELSE. BUT BETTER LATE THEN NEVER.
THE GUR PARSAAD HAVE BEEN KNOCKING AT YOUR DOOR SINCE THE FIRST TIME YOU WROTE TO US, DIVINE WISDOM IS A GUR PARSAAD AND COMES ONLY FROM WITHIN YOUR OWN SELF– IT IS A REWARD OF INFINITE TRUST, BANDGI IS NOTHING BUT INFINITE TRUST, BANDGI IS NOTHING BUT INFINITE DEVOTION, BANDGI IS NOTHING BUT INFINITE UNCONDITIONAL LOVE (NO DEMANDS), IT IS GOD’S DIVINE PROMISE THAT WHEN YOU DO HIS NAAM SIMRAN THEN HE WILL TAKE CARE OF ALL YOUR THINGS – PRABH KEY SIMRAN KARAJ PUREY.
IF READING WOULD BRING DIVINE WISDOM THEN EVERYBODY WHO READS GURBANI ON A REGULAR BASIS WOULD BECOME A BRAHAM GYANI – BUT THAT IS NOT THE CASE, IT IS THE INFINITE TRUST THAT BRINGS IN THE DIVINE WISDOM – JIS KEY RIDHEY VISHWAAS PRABH AAYEA TATT GYAN TIS MUNN PARGATAYEAA, IT THE TRUST THAT WINS AND NOT THE EGO. THE TRUST IN THE PERSON WHO IS SHOWING YOU THE RIGHT PATH IS AS IMPORTANT AS THE TRUST IN THE GOD – NANAK BRAHAM GYANI AAP PARMEYSUR; BRAHAM GYANI AAP NIRANKARAA; BRAHAM GYANI MUKT JUGT JEE KAA DATA, BRAHAM GYANI PURAN PURAKH VIDHATAA, NANAK PRABH JAN EKO JAAN, RAM SANT DOHEY EK HAIN, SANTAN BIN AUR NAA DATAA BEEAA AND SO ON, THE ENTIRE GURBANI IS TELLING THE DIVINE KATHA – HOW CAN YOU ACHIEVE WHAT YOU ARE LOOKING FOR.
DEMANDING SOMETHING IN LUE OF YOUR BANDGI IS A CONDITIONAL LOVE AND THERE IS NO CONDITION IN THE REAL DIVINE BANDGI, BANDGI IS A DIVINE GIFT – GUR PARSAAD, AND SHOULD NEVER BE WEIGHED AGAINST YOUR WORLDLY ACHIEVEMENTS, BANDGI IS FOR JIVAN MUKTI AND THEN HELPING OTHERS ACHIEVE JIVAN MUKTI BY VIRTUE OF DELIVERING AND SERVING THE TRUTH TO THE MASSES.
YOU ARE VERY FORTUNATE TO BE SO BLESSED WITH THIS WISDOM OF ACHIEVING THE GOD.
YOU WILL NOT PASS, YOU WILL NEVER PASS, YOU ARE BLESSED AND WILL REMAIN FOR EVER, WHEN YOU FOCUS ON SAT NAAM SIMRAN WITH NO DEMANDS, ACCEPTING HIS WILL – HUKAM – AND BE CONTENTED WITH WHATEVER YOU HAVE THEN WHO KNOWS THE THINGS WILL START FALLING IN PLACE FOR YOU AND YOUR FAMILY. SO PLEASE FOCUS ON SAT NAAM SIMRAN, THAT IS WHAT GOD WANTS YOU TO DO WITH COMPLETE SURRENDER – TUNN MUNN AND DHAN, WHO KNOWS WHEN YOU GO IN TO PURAN BANDGI THEN WHAT WILL HAPPEN. DOING GURBANI WILL MAKE YOU GURBANI. AND IT IS HARD TO SAY ANYTHING ABOUT THE ONES WHO BECOME GURBANI – BRAHAM GYANI KAA KATHEYAA NAA JAAYE ADHAKHAR.
PLEASE DON’T TAKE ALL YOUR PAINS AND SUFFERINGS AS A CURSE, IT IS THE GUR PARSAAD – DUKH DAROO SUKH ROG BHAYA, STOP CURSING YOUR FATE AND YOURSELF, IT IS ALL A PART OF THE DESTINY HOWEVER, BUT IT IS ALL GREAT AS THIS IS LEADING YOU IN THE RIGHT DIRECTION. ONCE YOU FOCUS ON SAT NAAM SIMRAN THEN YOU WILL START DOING BETTER AND BETTER. LEAVING EGO AND ADOPTING ALL DIVINE QUALITIES IS THE KEY TO THE SUCCESS. THE LEKHA JOKHA OF KARNI DOESN’T GET COMPLETED UNTIL YOU BECOME JIVAN MUKT, SO DON’T WORRY ABOUT IT, THE WORST MAY ALREADY BE OVER, JUST MOVE ALONG WITH TRUST, DEVOTION, LOVE AND FAITH. THE REAL HUMBLENESS IS THE HUMBLENESS OF HIRDA – GARIBI VES HIRDA WHICH IS THE REAL DIVINITY. DIVINITY LIVES IN THE HIRDA, AND HIRDA HAS TO GO IN PURAN SACHYARI REHAT TO MAKE A PLACE FOR THE GOD TO COME AND APPEAR IN. FORGET ABOUT THE PAST, DON’T THINK ABOUT THE FUTURE AND SIEZE THE CURRENT MOMENT WITH SAT NAAM – SAT KI KARNI WITH GARIBI VES HIRDA, DEVOTION, LOVE, TRUST AND FAITH..
THIS IS A TRUE BELIVE AND YOU WILL GO IN TO CHARDI KALA WITH SAT NAAM SIMRAN. BUT DON’T DELEBERATE ON IT, LET IT TAKE THE NATURAL COURSE AS A PART OF YOUR BANDGI PROCESS, AS YOU PROGRESS IN YOUR BANDGI, THINGS WILL HAPPEN BYTHEMSELVES, WE DON’T DO BANDGI TO MAKE THINGS HAPPEN, WE DO BANDGI TO PLEASE OUR KHASAM – AKAL PURAKH, AND ONCE HE IS PLEASED THEN THERE IS NO LIMT TO ANYTHING AND EVERYTHING.
IT IS ALL IN THE HANDS OF DATA – KARTA DHAN DHAN PAAR BRAHAM PITA PARMESAR JEE. WE ARE NOTHING JUST A WORTHLESS CREATURE ON THE FACE OF THIS EARTH, CAPABLE OF DOING NOTHING, IT IS ALL HIS GUR KIRPA AND GUR PARSAAD THAT MAKES THINGS HAPPEN, ALL WE CAN DO IS PRAY FOR YOU AND WE ARE SURE THAT HE WILL ANSWER OUR PRAYERS.
YOUR VISION OF MEDITATING IN THE MIDDLE OF THE LAKE WAS NOT WHERE YOU WENT PHYSICALLY AS THERE IS NO SUCH PLACE ON THE EARTH, THE LAKE YOU SAW IN YOUR VISION IS THE MANSAROVAR – GUR SAGAR – AMRIT SAGAR. AND YOU CAN REACH THE MANSAROVAR, WHICH IS INSIDE YOU, WHEN YOU MEDITATE ON SAT NAAM. YOU MADE YOUR JOURNEY BECAUSE AKAL PURAKH JI WANTED TO REMOVE YOUR ILLUSIONS.
