Founder Of Prem Nagar Ashram

YOGIRAJ PARAMSANT SATGURUDEV SHRI HANS JI MAHARAJ

Shri Hans Ji Maharaj, from the Himalayan district of Uttarakhand, was an enlightened master in the tradition of the divine masters such as Lord Rama, Lord Krishna, Shri Shankaracharya, Guru Nanak, Jesus Christ, Lord Buddha and Shri Ramakrishna, who came intothe world to free people from blind faith, ignorance, superstition and misery by means of the practical technique of Spiritual Knowledge which leads to the direct realization of the self.

A magnetic personality, whose very presence radiated love, peace and blessedness, he started a wave of spiritual renaissance throughout India and transformed the lives of hundreds of thousands of people. He taught the deepest mysteries of religion in a very down to earth fashion, and made spirituality a living, practical reality in the lives of his devotees. He believed that theory or theology bereft of realization was futile. The technique of spiritual insight that he revealed, and the growth of spiritual awareness and understanding that come with it, enabled disciples to harmonize the material and spiritual aspects of their lives in a most practical way. He made his disciples understand the need of first living religion and then preaching it. Thus spirituality became a way of life for his disciples and Shri Maharaj Ji was the living embodiment of what he taught.

He revealed to his disciples the same Knowledge of Divine Light and True Name of God which the great saints and Masters of all religions have revealed during their lifetime. He stressed the importance of not just revering the saints, but striving to attain the state which they had reached. Not only this, he himself showed how to do it and revealed the techniques by which the highest state is attained.

His teachings and the knowledge he revealed transcends caste, colour and creed, so he had no need to establish a new sect or religion. Like all great saints, his message was for the good of all. His passing in 1966 was a great loss to mankind, but the lamp of knowledge which he lit can never be extinguished.

SATGURUDEV SHRI SATPAL JI MAHARAJ

The noble work of Shri Hans Ji Maharaj is being carried on by his eldest son, Shri Satpal Ji Maharaj, who was born in Kankhal (Haridwar) on Sept 21, 1951. His innate leadership and organising abilities, as well as his inherent spirituality, started manifesting themselves even in his childhood, so that, when the time came, he dedicated himself to his father's work with characteristic zeal and efficiency. Totally devoted to his own Master, and never veering from the high ideals and moral integrity of his teachings, Shri Satpal Ji Maharaj demonstrated the path of service and sacrifice in his own life.

Constantly touring, he addresses huge audiences throughout India. Many thousands of people have been benefited by this message of spiritual upliftment and by the knowledge he reveals.

Years of tireless effort culminated in a series of “padyatras”. A padyatra is a long march with a spiritual or social purpose. At each stop along the way, he spoke out against prevailing social injustices such as dowry death, oppression of women, castediscrimination, communal violence and corruption at all levels of public life. He said that the only way to transform the existing atmosphere of peace, co-operation and understanding, was a fundamental transformation of the consciousness of individuals. What is needed is a massive spiritual renaissance, beginning with each person experiencing and realizing his own spiritual nature and evolving his own consciousness. Material progress has not been matched by a corresponding spiritual evolution, hence the unrest, unhappiness and lack of understanding among people. Increased abundance of material goods has not been able to satisfy man, nor strengthen his character and integrity. Only a spiritual awakening based on practical experience of the unifying factor with in all human beings can eradicate the social injustice and imbalance which prevail not only in India, but throughout the world. Spiritual knowledge, not mere laws, can change individuals.

The purpose of Prem Nagar Ashram is to provide a holy and tranquil environment where aspirants can come to learn the teachings of Shri Maharaj Ji and to receive his knowledge, thus participating in a spiritual revolution for the good of mankind, by which peace, love and brotherhood can be established all over the world.
