Dada J P Vaswani
The spiritual head of Sadhu Vaswani Mission in Pune, Dada J P Vaswani was born on August 2, 1918, at Hyderabad-Sind. Being a brilliant student, he was given a number of double promotions and thus passed the the B.S. examination when just seventeen. A masters degree and fellowship at a leading college followed and Dada seemed poised at the threshold of a brilliant academic or civil services career. It was at this stage that he gave it all up and decided to follow his uncle and guru, Sadhu T.L. Vaswani, a mystic and philosopher on the spiritual path. Reaching out to people with a message of spirituality became his life mission. As editor of Excelsior magazine, he was initially met with opposition as not everyone related to the spiritual dimension. Still, he took it upon himself to write, proof read, print, get advertisements, package and post the magazine all by himself. The publications popularity grew to the extent that it surpassed the circulation of the leading daily newspaper, The Sind Observer.
A prolific author, he has written over thirty books in English and several more in Sindhi. Committed to education, he is the honorary principal of St. Miras College in Pune that was established in 1962. The college which started out with just sixty two students has since grown to accommodate over five thousand students today.
A gifted orator, he has spoken on Universal Peace at the United Nations, a World without Wars at the House of Commons, London and was a keynote Speaker at the Centennial Celebrations of the World Parliament of Religions in New York.

Ask Dada J P Vaswani
Question 31. My name is Ravi Jain. I have read about the enlightenment on internet on lifepositive.com. I feel deep from my heart that it is all true. It all matches with what the same happened to me few months ago. - Ravi Jain
If you are on the Path, your soul will guide you, step by step. All you are required to do is to surrender yourself.
Question 32. Dear Dada, My question is: Till the time you are of some help to a person or till the time he needs you for some or the other reason he is sweet to you and the moment what do we do? - Nitin Saagar On 21 March 2009
This is an essential teaching of the Gita- do your duty as an offering of love to the Lord. Do not expect any reward; therefore so much of our grief is caused by our expectations.
Question 33. Dada, what is the way to accept one’s destiny even if we feel it is being unfair? - Sabagi Sethar
So many things happen to us, we are unable to understand the why of them. Instead of wasting our precious time and energy on questions which make a situation worse confounded, let us move forward on the path of acceptance, singing the song:
Thou knowest everything my beloved
Let Thy will always be done,
In joy and sorrow , my beloved
Let Thy will always be done
Question 34. If the organization we work for is not ethical, what should we do? - Ashima Patel
Look for an opportunity to come out of it
Question 35. How do we find the purpose of our life? Sometimes, even if we try hard, we are unable to succeed. Is the path then wrong for us? - Anand Shah
It will be well with us if at every step and in every round of life, we consult a spiritual elder and follow his/her guidance.
