My darshan of Bapuji the Yogiraj that became Shri Krishna during His life !


Shri Dhyanyogi Madhusudandasji was a great saint, whose search for spiritual enlightenment took place during and era in an India that no longer exist.

Born in Bihar, India, Shri Dhyanyogi was a very meditative child. His spiritual quest began at the age of seven when he ran away from home in search of God. Although his parents quickly found him, he left again for good at age 13.

He walked barefoot across India, in the 1890’s and early 1900’s through what were then jungles, but are now cleared and settle lands, meeting saints living in seclusion, completely detached from the mundane world.

He mastered Mantra, Yantra, Hatha, Raja and Jnana Yoga, and became adept at yogic philosophies and scriptures. Yet after 30 years of austerities and intense searching, he had not attained his highest goal, the ultimate encounter with God.

In 1921 on Mount Abu, His encounter with the great master, Yogiraj Parameshwardas, who gave him Shaktipat initiation. He immediately went into the highest state of samadhi, remained in that state for 3 days and attained the ultimate goal of God realization

By the grace and instructions of Shri Parameshwardas, Shri Dhyanyogiji became a master of Kundalini Maha Yoga, with the power to awaken the dormant Kundalini in spiritual aspirants. He founded an ashram at Bandhwad, Gujarat, India, where he carried his work and teachings. In 1960, Shri Dhyanyogiji was inspired to begin public instruction in Kundalini Maha Yoga and to conduct group meditation programs throughout India.

In 1976, as part of his mission to assist spiritual seekers, he came to America, where he initiated through Shaktipat thousands of Americans into the path of Dhyanyoga, or meditation and established centers from coast to coast.

He returned to India in 1980 and spent his remaining years in Ahmedabad, Gujarat. He left his body at the age of 116, entering Maha Samadhi on August 29, 1994, the anniversary of Lord Krishna.

Bapuji was Pure simple Love to the thousands of lives He touched.
