Kartik Shukla Navami Maha Nirvaan Tithi
Deserving to be remembered in the morning , revered Swami Sri Leelashahji Maharaj was a Self-realized saint established in the Truth-consciousness-Bliss Personified Supreme Self and had guided many sadhakas (aspirants) towards the same . His life is a source of divine inspiration for all living beings on earth . His each and every action was directed towards the welfare of the entire creation. His mere ‘darshan’ would please the minds, the clouds of disappointment would get dispersed , and the dejected souls get charged with zeal, and with the perplexities of the confused ones being solved , a new life would possess them. His complete life was in a way a confluence of the yoga of Karma (action) , jnana (knowledge) , and Bhakti (devotion) . He was an accomplished yogi having tremendous powers. Many Incidences occurred knowingly or unknowingly in His life suggestive of his yogic powers , like halting the train , moving a neem tree across the ground , giving eyesight to blind , and child to the barren etc.
Once saint Leelaram (former name) was passing through a village . A poor woman was crying over her dead son. She had kept the dead body of her child a little far from her on the road . seeing a dead child sleeping on road , suddenly the following words came out of His mouth : “Child! Get Up”
Listening to the words of Sant Leelaram , the dead child got up at once and fell at the saint`s feet. The poor mother , on seeing thios miracle , came running and started expressing her heartfelt gratitude holding the saint`s feet Santsri said to woman ,”Mother! I pray to you not to tell about this incidence to anyone.” But how long could the truth be concealed ?
तप करे पाताल में , प्रगट होय आकाश |
रज्जब तीनों लोक में , छिपे न हरि को लाल ||
“Even if one performs austerities in the nether world , it is revealed in the heaven .
Says Rajjab , that in all the three worlds , The son of ‘Hari’ can not remain hidden”
Within a short time , the villagers came to knowof the might of this Great Man. Having known this , He at once left the villages and went elsewhere .
Sant Leelaram would sing the following lines of His self- compoised poem to his audience :
चार दिन की जिंदगानी में , तन से ,
मन से हमेशा के लिए रहता नहीं इस डरे फानी में |
कुछ अच्छा काम कर लो , चार दिन की जिंदगानी में ||
तन से सेवा करो जगत की , मन से प्रभु के हो जाओ |
शुद्ध बुद्धि से तत्वनिष्ट्ठ हो , मुक्त अवस्था को तुम पाओ ||
“Life is sort : one does not
Live in this mortal world forver,
Do some nobel tasksin this short spam;
Through your body , serve the world ;
And surrender your mind to God.
With a pure intellect become established in the truth.
And attain the state of liberation”
Thus his entire life was benevolent . The feeling only of benevolence and divine love circulated in His each and every vein. The message of His life was , “As long as there is life , keep performing altruistic activities . Know your self , attain your supream bliss which is beyond the burdens of sense of doer-ship.”
He carried out several public –welfare works in different regions but never entertained the feeling of being the ‘doer’. He was an epitome of humanity and selflessness. He used to say , “These acts are accomplished by that one Great (divine) power at different places. ‘Leela’ doesn`t do anything”
