The Maitreya arrives!
Mitr Sut’s spiritual journey led him to experience the grace of Maitreya Dadashreeji, who transformed him like no other
It was in December 2011, that I stood with my friends, one early morning, for an aarti (ritual) of Shyam Sunder (Lord Krishna) at the well-known Vrindavan temple. This particular temple had the samadhis (tombs) of many saints around the main garbhgriha or sanctum sanctorum. As the aarti got over and I sat down and stared into the eyes of Shyam Sunder, I went into a different realm, as if my soul was pulled out and the Lord seemed to be sitting right in front of me. I prayed to Shyam Sunder,“There is so much pain and suffering in the world. When will YOU come? How can YOU allow so much pain and misery to continue?”
I was still and had no idea how long I sat there, but when my friend touched me to get up to leave, I realised I was in tears and in inexplicable bliss, feeling as if the various saints in the samadhis had come alive. I had no idea what was happening, and as my mind became active, I just prostrated in front of the idol and we left.
I continued exploring Vedantic philosophy, which I had been pursuing for more than 10 years. In January 2013, I was invited by my friend to attend a spiritual programme called Bodh, conducted by Maitreya Dadashreeji, founder visionary of the MaitriBodh Parivaar, in ShantiKshetra Premgiri Ashram, at Karjat, near Mumbai, India. It was a reluctant trip, as I had visited many spiritual masters before and having read innumerable texts, I saw nothing beyond the path of Vedanta. But there had been an internal struggle to know more, to experience at least something of what I read and understood with the grace of my previous guru. This, coupled with my scientific and questioning mindset, I journeyed to the ashram.
Dadashreeji’s answer to a question put forth to Him during an interview with Life Positive had influenced me greatly:
Q: Are you enlightened?
Dadashreeji: If I say I am enlightened, then that ‘I’ still exists! I do not possess any sense of the ego in human terms.
That was it. What a profound answer! This statement reflects the humility of the Master, and at the same time, his level of knowledge.Having read so much about the ‘state’ of the ‘One’ who is ‘Sthithpradnya’ (established in Brahman), I always wondered if I would ever get a chance to meet such a ‘One,’ because that would be one of the biggest blessings and inspirations in one’s life.
Meeting the Maitreya
During the two-day retreat called ‘Bodh—Awakening to Self-Realisation,’ we were fortunate to be allowed to have three minutes of one-on-one interaction with Dadashreeji on the first night of the retreat. I still remember that moment clearly as I entered the Shaktipeetham (the abode of Divine mother AadiShakti Mahakaali, which was then a small, sacred and beautiful thatched-roof wooden shelter). Dadashreeji sat on one side. I entered and offered my pranaam (obeisance) and looked at Him. He smiled. As He glanced at me, a wave of energy surged up my spine. His look was a knowing look, as if He knew me for many births and His eyes had something mystical and deep, captivating, yet an alarming innocence, as if it was Shyam Sunder staring back at me!
Feeling comfortable and relaxed, I asked Dadashreeji freely about my spiritual path of Jnana Margand, a little bit about my devotion to Krishna, which kept wavering. He said only one thing: “Think of Krishna as your friend; feel and spread love; and that Dadashreeji, Mahavatar Babaji, and Krishna are but ONE and the same reality.” This, I understood in principle, but I had my doubts about the practicality of befriending Krishna. Dadashreeji reassured me: “Before you leave from here, you will have Krishna as your friend.”
The next day, Dadashreeji spoke at length on the eventual purpose of human life to reach the Source through Love, not by running away from the world, but by being in the world and spreading this knowledge and love.
The last session of Bodh was the ShaktiPravaah (a sacred process, where Dadashreeji transfers His divine energy to us). Immediately after this, I had a vision, wherein I first saw some deities, then my previous guru, my parents, and friends, but there was no sign of Krishna. In between, I had to lie down because of the immense energy generated, which distracted me. And then lo and behold! I saw something so distinct that it makes my hair stand on end even now. It was Dadashreeji in the form of Lord Krishna! I thought that I was hallucinating, but the vision kept coming back again and again. An indescribable peace and feeling of immense love descended upon me.
It sank in much, much later: “I now have Dadashreeji in the form of Krishna, as my eternal friend and guide,” and then I just couldn’t help but bow down to Him for having given me this vision.
The grace continues
Back from Karjat, I was immersed in my daily routine. It seemed, that now I had returned back to my worldly ‘senses’ (rather the ‘non-sense’ of the ‘false’ world), when doubts crept in. At times, a weird thought would cross my mind: “Maybe Dadashreeji has some siddhi (mystical power) that makes so many of us attain these beautiful states. However, the feeling of oneness and love kept increasing over the days to come.
I distinctly remember that post-Bodh, when I would sit for my evening prayer, something made me reconnect to Dadashreeji within, and I would cry uncontrollably for hours and be in a blissful state of ecstatic happiness, which continued for almost a month.
What is it that Dadashreeji has bestowed? This experience defies all that I had ever read in the scriptural texts. I truly wish and pray for all seekers to experience this nectar once. What a difference it will make to them and their bookish knowledge! It was as if, there was an installation of software of the astral form of Dadashreeji within, with which I could connect with Him at any moment. It is a state of super-consciousness, with love exuding from the heart, the mind at rest, heightened awareness, and insurmountable energy within, to irresistibly go out and serve others.
With this began my surrender to the Divine power, which had chosen and accepted me unconditionally and given so much Love, incomparable to anything that the world can offer! I thanked Dadashreeji and prayed for that state of ‘Anyabhilashita shuny’ (being devoid of any desires, including even ‘mukti’ or liberation, other than the desire to please Him, and serve Him and His mission).
Serving the world with love
So my journey began in 2013. Many, besides me, who came in His presence, experienced a stark difference in themselves, taking with them something profound in their hearts. These seekers were not just from India, but also Westerners from Europe, the US, and other regions, who got an opportunity to be in His physical presence. This family, that began with seven awakened souls, now runs into thousands spanning India, Europe, Middle East, USA, UK, Russia, and is expanding.
Dadashreeji’s teachings are simple, yet very powerful and clear, with profound processes that enable one to truly connect, bond, and establish a communication with one’s higher Self. One of His core teachings is “The cause of suffering is the lack of Love.” He is here to give one that experience of divine, unconditional Love.
Love and selfless service is the foundation of the MairtiBodh Parivaar. Under His guidance, many social projects have been undertaken to help mankind in different ways. Maitri Yoga-the five-fold path, which has been introduced by Dadashreeji, will help uplift the present human consciousness to experience the Divine.
Despite all this, Dadashreeji only humbles you by His words:
“Is my guidance able to fulfil your need? Do you see transformation internally and externally on listening to my words of truth, peace, and care? If it is, flow with passion and witness the truth in you effortlessly. If it doesn’t flow naturally, you have a choice and the right to search for another source for your spiritual fulfilment.”
Guided by the Source
Let us further understand the core and intensity of Dadashreeji’s work.
From time immemorial, human beings have been seeking happiness through worldly, transitory means, which fail to give complete satisfaction and permanent happiness. Only a few start seeking for the permanent source of happiness and the ultimate Truth. And so begins one’s spiritual journey. One encounters many different paths and spiritual techniques. The serious ones soon realise a big challenge: dealing with one’s mind. The mind is where lies pain and suffering, where there are innumerable demands and desires, and it seems so unrelenting and controlling!
This is where one needs true guidance and divine grace. Maitreya Dadashreeji is here to bring about a transformation. This internal awakening is not just achieved by theoretical teachings or complicated sadhanas or practices but in simple ways through various sessions and specifically by a profound process of divine energy called ShaktiPravaah. With this transformation, one unknowingly starts experiencing a lightness and the flowering of one’s heart, because the heart is where the very Source resides, and it has been subdued by the conditioned mind over many births. Many a time, this transformation happens just by being in the physical presence of Maitreya Dadashreeji Himself, as He is the very source of Divine Love. You don’t need to practise complicated techniques and understand complex teachings to reach the Truth.
So then, what is this transformation? Is this enlightenment? One of the most baffling terms which one comes across in the spiritual world is ‘enlightenment’, and it has been discussed by spiritual intellectuals, paradoxically those who did not experience it themselves, making it seem like a forbidden, unattainable rare entity!
Dadashreeji, being the Source, beautifully explains it saying, “Self-realisation is a continuous process of ‘becoming who you truly are’. Enlightenment is beyond that, when ‘you become what you are.’ Your true Self becomes the dominant force within. The layer of ignorance enveloping your true being is removed. This is a totally passive state, whereas awakening and Self-realisation may require an active contribution from you. In the state of enlightenment, you are free from worldly bondage and the mind is in tune with nature.” He further adds, “Is enlightenment the end of one’s spiritual journey? No. In fact, it’s the beginning of a new journey of your existence. We emphasise mainly on this next step of your spiritual journey known as ‘Transformation.’ The process of transformation is like a never-ending circle and continuous.”
Mukti for all mankind
Maitreya Dadashreeji wants this transformation not just for a few individuals, but for the entire humanity. This is a huge task, beyond anything that one can ever imagine, which only happens once in a millennium. Whenever the Divine has descended on the earth plane, it is for a higher purpose. Each form has a specific method, unique and appropriate for that particular period.
Dadashreeji says, “Before me, many have delivered teachings and techniques for your salvation and liberation. I am not here to repeat their message but to deliver ‘that experience’ in your heart so it becomes your personal truth.”
Dadashreeji is an internal experience. So close your eyes and go within your heart right now and connect to Him. Those who have known of Him and seen Him will know the experience and will be speechless. For the first-time readers, connect to the Divine form of your choice or the formless, whosoever you believe in, and pray to receive the grace.
We call Dadashreeji, Maitreya. Maitreya is an internal ‘sthiti’ or state, where the Divine is one with all beings, exuding that pure unconditional Love. His sole purpose is to transform you and take you back to your true Home. His Maitreya state is of Supreme Peace, Supreme Bliss, and Supreme Wisdom of life and beyond. Yet, even while being in this Supreme state, He is one with all. Maitreya is an interactive mode. Through love and friendship, He will bring about transformation very smoothly.
The Divine has given me this vision to share it with you. It’s my personal truth and each one of you is free to discover the same. Let us all be wise to use Maitreya Dadashreeji’s Consciousness to transform our own self, to be a better human being and be part of this divine ‘Maitri’ mission, to help usher in a new age of love and peace.
As Dadashreeji says, “Use all the resources to uplift and improve yourself. When all your efforts end, allow me to work on you. You will witness that transformation you needed for long.”
