Self Realized Pujya Niruma
Pujya Niruben Amin, lovingly referred to as ‘Niruma’, was born on December 2nd, 1944 in Aurangabad, India. Her family is one of the wealthiest in the region. She was the only sister amongst five elder brothers in the Amin family. Being the youngest, her parents and siblings showered her with love and attention. She completed her basic schooling in Mumbai and graduated with a medical degree in Gynecology from Aurangabad Medical College.
In her final year at college, one of her brothers told her about The Gnani Purush (Self-Enlightened Being) Ambalal Muljibhai Patel, also known as ‘Dadashri‘ or ‘Dada Bhagwan’. Param Pujya Dadashri had the ability to give self realization to people, within two hours through the unique spiritual science of Akram Vignan, a short-cut path to Self Realization.
She attained Self-Realization from Param Pujya Dadashri on July 8, 1968, while continuing her post-graduate studies. From that moment on she had a fervent desire to pursue the spiritual path that Param Pujya Dadashri had introduced to her. This knowledge helped her through difficult times; even when her father passed away. At that time she was taking her final exams and instead of feeling grieved and stressed, she managed to remain detached and free from any suffering. She was convinced that the enlightenment which she attained from Param Pujya Dadashri was truly phenomenal and regardless of her external circumstances, she experienced the bliss of the Self from within.
Niruma felt that there would be many doctors of medicine but rarely does one come across a ‘doctor of the Soul.’ She wondered why she too should not join Param Pujya Dadashri in his mission for the world’s salvation, especially if one could attain Self Realization in just two hours and experience freedom from all sufferings, worries and sorrows. What could be greater than such a vocation? She yearned to be Param Pujya Dadashri’s aide and vowed to serve him until her last breath. Niruma dedicated the next twenty years of her life, from 1968 to 1988, in Param Pujya Dadashri ’s devotional service.
Param Pujya Dadashri once said to her, “Niruben, you did nursery for me like a mother, served me like a daughter, and you have been a nurse to me in my illness.” In 1987, Param Pujya Dadashri told her, “You will have to be a mother to the whole world.” She accompanied Param Pujya Dadashri wherever he went. In her attendance to Param Pujya Dadashri, she became an exemplary model of seva (devotional service).
Using a simple tape-recorder, Niruma would record everything when Dada spoke during satsang. Later, the Gnani’s pure words of knowledge were published verbatim in the collective fourteen volumes of Aptavani. Along with ‘Aptavani’ came a myriad of other books like science of speech, death, generation gap, harmony in marriage, science of karma, money, and pratikraman to name a few that deal with issues of worldly life. Never once, did she claim anything as her own work and she reiterated with remarkable humility that it was Param Pujya Dadashri ‘s grace that allowed her to accomplish all her endeavors and that all the credit should be his alone.
Param Pujya Dadashri was very satisfied with her spiritual progress. Niruma was by Param Pujya Dadashri’s side in his final moments. Shortly before he passed away, he graced her with the siddhis (special spiritual powers) to impart the knowledge of Self Realization to others. He told her, “I am very pleased with you Niruben. Whenever Niruben wants, Dadashri will speak from within. This Niruben is a great source for the world’s salvation.” Indeed, he truly resided in her heart!
Armed with Param Pujya Dadashri ’s blessings, she went from village to village in India and traveled abroad at her own expense and performed Gnan vidhis, gracing thousands of people with this knowledge and guiding them on the path towards liberation. She acquired Param Pujya Dadashri ’s tremendous grace. Her efforts have been very fruitful, touching the lives of thousands who are now experiencing the bliss of the Self. Her only goal in life had been to fulfill her promise to Param Pujya Dadashri . Devoting her mind, speech, and body solely for this purpose, she had become the medium for the world’s salvation. The fruit of her effort is evident in the growing numbers of people that are becoming aware of the beauty of this new spiritual science.
Her exclusive focus was to give Knowledge of the Self to the spiritually thirsty. In this role, she herself became an exemplary proving to the world an astounding capability as a leader and rightful inheritor to walk in the footsteps of the Gnani Purush Param Pujya, Dadashri.
Pujya Niruma left her mortal body on March 19, 2006, in a state of absolute samadhi (a blissful passing away resulting from being in the state of the Soul and complete detachment from the body). However, her subtle spiritual presence continues to give people inner strength to progress in their path towards liberation.
Today, her mission continues with the same zeal by her spiritual contemporary Pujya Shri Deepakbhai. Param Pujya Dadashri , in Niruma’s presence, had also bestowed upon Shri Deepakbhai, special spiritual powers to conduct satsang and Pujya Niruma bestowed him special spiritual powers to conduct Gnan Vidhi. The Gnan Vidhi is a rite that is the threshold into Dadashri’s science. The power of this Vidhi graces the seeker with a separation of the Self and the non-self. Pujya Shri Deepakbhai is the next medium after Niruma who will liberate the hurling waves of humanity on the path of salvation, in implementing Param Pujya Dadashri ‘s phenomenal science of Akram Vignan.
