Gnani Purush Dadashri, attained the experience of the absolute Self in 1958. In 1962 through the accomplished energy of the Self he graced a seeker, Chandrakant Patel, by performing the now famous Gnan Vidhi wherein he too attained the beginning experience of the Self that is absolutely separate from th mind-speech-body complex called the self. This initial experience of the Self in the participant, now known as a mahatma, is associated with a fundamental change in the view and vision that now begins to See and Know all aspects of the mind-body-ego complex called the self. A new Light, light of Knowledge begins within, that is able to see all mistakes of the worldly interacting self with a worldly name. The Self that awakens in the Gnan Vidhi now progresses to further experiences in a state that is absolutely independent and separate from the visible and subtle body mind interactions. This process of liberation and progress towards the experience of the absolute Self is accomplished by an energy called pragnya.Words cannot describe the state of the Self that is beyond the experiences of the mind-speech and body. The energy of pragnya maintains the separation of the Self from the non-self. In the book the satsang on pragnya compiled by Dr. Niruben Amin, is now being made available in English for the world. All aspects of this liberating energy of the Self, are revealed by Gnani Purush Dadashri, in this book.Until pragnya arises the prevailing energy of human beings is ugnya energy or ignorance or darkness. This ignorance is the absence of the knowledge-experience of the Self. Pragnya can only arise with Self-realization. Self-realization can happen in one of two ways. One way to liberation is by ones own self efforts. The other is the easy way, through the meeting with a Gnani Purush. This is easy when the Gnan Vidhi happens through the grace of the Gnani Purush. This direct easy path to Self bliss is called Akram Vignan.If there was a thousand watts light bulb fitted within a clay pot, and the opening of the pot was closed tight, would there be any light around? No, you would not be able to see any light. This is the case with the ignorant self, the one who is not aware of the eternal Self within. Within you there is infinite light of Knowledge, but the darkness prevails because of the layers of ignorance over the Self. With the grace and special internal power known as siddhi of the Gnani Purush, if a tiny hole is made in the clay-pot covering the light bulb, the whole room will be filled with the light coming through. That much covering is broken and that much direct light comes out. This light increases as more of the layers are lifted and as more holes are made in the pot. And when the whole pot is destroyed and separated, detached away from the bulb, there will be a flood of full light everywhere.Pragnya is this direct light. It is the light that is of the Self.
