YogYogeshwar Mahaprabhu Sri Ramlal Ji Maharaj (exists in his second bodyform on Himalayas)

Prabhuji is also known as Mahavtar Babaji according to the famous book- 'Autobiography of a Yogi'. He had taken this body form in Amritsar, Punjab in the year 1888, Thursday, Chait Shukla Navmi (ram Navmi) at 6 Ghadi 56 pal (4 am), under Vrishabh lagna according to his horoscope. His mother's name was Smt. Bhagwanti and his father, Sri Gandaram was an astrologer. Prabhu ji was a Siddha yogi since his birth. He is the master of ashta siddhis, radiant light of Yoga knowledge, salvator for mortal beings on earth and capable of giving them the divine experiences, master of masters, immortal. His birth was predicted thousands of years ago by Kakabhshindi ji in his Nadi Grantha.

Prabhuji had existed in this body form for 51 years. He is capable of having multiple bodies at the same time and exists since time immemorial. He never dies even when the universe comes to an end. Such is the power of Siddha Yogis. He still exists in his second body form in Nepal Himalayas and few people have seen him even now.

Prabhuji's birth time and date matches the birth time of God Rama exactly. This is an indication his state of complete unison with the Brahman or supreme. Prabhuji is the treasure of peace and happiness and no wonder our gurudev Sri Chandramohan Ji Maharaj also was a master of an infinite storehouse of Yoga knowledge and divine powers.

Early childhood

Prabhuji displayed his divinity since his childhood days. Gurudev used to enter a state of Bhavateet, Gunateet and Turyavastha samadhi while narrating prabhuji's life's story. Prabhuji's mother saw him as Lord Vishnu during his birth. He took this body form to reestablish the lost knowledge of Yoga in the present age.

In Amritsar an old lady was on death bed and wanted to die after seeing Prabhuji. Prabhuji who was 3 years old then gave her his darshan and she left her body for her divine heavenly abode due to prabhuji's grace. A Siddha Yogi from Himalayas came once to see this child form of prabhuji and sought his blessings.

Leaving Home

Prabhuji left his house at a very young age to study Ayurveda and Yoga in Kashi. He learnt under the tutelage of renowned saints and yogis. Once while he was discussing the mysteries of ashtang yoga and shatchakra a railway guard from Amritsar town got interested in him and recognized him. He brought him to his house. Prabhuji did not stay there and left for Haridwar.

Marriage

In 1905 his father got him married to Srimati Subhadra Devi so that he gets back into the material world. But Prabhuji was a detached person and continued his yoga practice in his house.

Education

Prabhuji studied in a place called Kurukshetra in Haryana under the guidance of Pundit Balaraj. Once while prabhuji was asleep, his classmates saw a cobra spreading his hood over his head and providing shadow on his face. This was an indication that prabhuji may be either an emperor of emperors or a Yogi amongst Yogis. On waking up Prabhuji dispelled everyone's fears and acted like a normal being.

Complete mastery over Astrology

During his education period once Prabhuji surprised a businessman by telling him correctly his past, present and predicting his future. His classmates were awestruck with Prabhuji's knowledge of astrology. Later his father too learnt a lot from him.

Loss of Father (1907)

Prabhuji was at home when his father expired. Prabhuji then left for Haridwar.

Stay in Bhramapuri

11 kilometers away from Rishikesh is a place called Bhramapuri where Prabhuji stayed. The place was a dense forest with wild animals during that time. Great yogis Heeragiri and Kripalanandji stayed with him and received Prabhuji's blessings to reach heights in their Yoga practice. Prabhuji also stayed in Vashishtha cave during that time.

Guidance to confused saints

In Bhramapuri Prabhuji saw a sadhu that had a container that could fill itself with any food desired. On seeing that people are trapped in worldly and mundane powers Prabhuji taught such people to work towards their main goal of Yoga and left Bhramapuri.

In the form of a yogi and a doctor

Prabhuji stayed for some time in a place called Kathagodam in the foothills of Himalayas. He used to cure people of various ailments by giving them his blessings and petals of flowers. He also sometimes used to give them a small packet of medicine which was same for any kind of ailment.

Salvation of Laxmandas

In Muradabad there was a saint in whose ashram people used to say cows and lions come and sit together. On hearing that Prabhuji went there and found this saint called Laxmandas to be a fake saint fooling people and enjoying the luxuries of life. Prabhuji being omniscient understood that and told this fake saint his reality. On hearing that the saint was stunned and fell on Prabhji's feet. Prabhuji blessed him and guided him towards the right path.

Khechri power to a child (Devraha Baba)

There was a temple in Muradabad where a child was practicing yoga. Prabhuji awakened his Kundalini shakti and blessed him with the mastery of khecheri state of Yoga. ( a very high state of yoga where the tongue rolls up and the yogi enjoys divine nectar. The yogi is able to control his hunger and can control is death.). Devraha Baba became very famous later and used to remember Prabhuji explaining Prabhuji's qualities and blessings whenever anyone from our ashram used to visit him.

Showing Lord Krishna to an Avdhutani

Prabhuji traveled from Jaspur to Ayodhya where he met an Avdhutani named Sulabha who was crying on meeting fake saints in her life. Prabhuji took pity on her and initiated her in the higher levels of yoga and she saw Lord Krishna.

In Sawain Village

Prabhiji reached the village Sawin, Etmatpur in Agra and stayed with Mr. Pyrelal. He used his knowledge of medicines to cure villagers, taught them yoga, initiated them and guided them.

Building the Siddha Gufa (cave)

In 1911 the famous Siddha Gufa (cave) was built by villagers for prabhji to stay inside and remain in the state of samadhi without disturbance whenever he wanted.

The miraculous sand of the Siddha Gufa

Prabhuji blessed the sand of the cave and even today this sand when applied on the forehead or eaten with devotion cures the most difficult ailments and fulfills wishes of thousands of people.

Construction of a pond

Prabhuji directed the villagers to construct a pond in Savain village. This pond used to cure people of any kind of skin diseases. The pond had dried now and no longer exist.

Traveling through the sky with the 'Anima' powers

Once Prabhuji expressed his desire to villagers that he wanted to go to Nepal Himalayas, his favorite abode and stay there. Villagers did not like the idea and pleaded to Prabhuji to stay in the village and they would not disturb him. After persistent requests Prabhuji agreed to stay in the cave while innocent villagers locked the cave from outside so that no one can go inside and disturb him. During one early morning hours a farmer of the village saw someone flying in the sky. He got scared which made Prabhuji come down from the sky and tell him that he is from the Savain Cave and is going to Nepal Himalayas Prabhuji further told him not to inform his fellow villagers as they may feel sad that Prabhuji has deserted them. The farmer could not hide this from villagers and came to the cave to inform , what he saw to villagers sleeping around the cave. The villagers did not believe him as the cave was locked by them. Thus the cave was unlocked to be found that it was latched from inside too. When the door was broken open the villagers could not find Prabhuji inside the cave. They could only find Prabhuji's water container and the piece of cloth he used to sit on. This unbelievable incident has happened in this age of modern science and may be inexplicable by the still developing science. But according to Yoga, all these kind of miracles are possible by a Siddha yogi and is called 'Anima' siddhi where a yogi can make himself as small as an atom. We have heard from Mythology about Lord Hanuman crossing the sea with his flight in Satayuga age and this incident proves that Hanuman's story is not just a story but a possible feat by any Siddha yogi.

Blessing a brahmachari in Kashi

There was a Brahmachari in Kashi who used to live like a material man hiding his yoga practices from prying eyes of the society. Prabhuji saw him, understood his truth and cleared all his doubts blessing him with higher states of Yoga.

Blessing a Tantric Pundit

Prabhuji was staying at his disciple's place who was a Pundit. Another pundit once came to his house and the host pundit got scared on seeing him. Prabhuji who was watching all this understood the scene. The visitor was a tantric who used to perform impure 'Vama" practices to achieve selfish gains and caused harm to others. During that night Prabhuji went to this Tantric in his metaphysical body and destroyed the sadhana of the tantric. Horrified by the loss that tantric pundit fell on Prabhuji's feel and sought Prabhuji's forgiveness. Prabhuji then initiated this Tantric into the Siddha Yoga order and he practiced yoga as directed by Prabhuji.

Freedom from ghosts

There was a temple on the banks of the river Narmada and anyone spending a night was found dead the next morning. Prabhuji camped there in the night and got that place rid of all the ghosts and helped the villagers live without fear.

Conquest over elements by Hariharanandji

Hariram was a youth in a village where the head of the village used to do illegal flesh trade of women in the village. Hariram was attacked by the headman's goons with bamboo sticks but Hariram bravely fought them and beat up those goons breaking their bones in the event. Prabhuji was happy at this brave man and called him and asked him lovingly if Hariram is a generous man too. Hariram answered in the affirmative and told Prabhuji to ask from him whatever he wanted and he would promise to give him. Prabhuji asked him his head to which Hariram agreed but he asked for a day's time so that he can donate everything he had to brahmins. Hariram came the next day with a sword and the moment he was about to cut his head Prabhuji held his hand and broke the sword. Prabhuji instantly blessed him to become a conqueror of all the elements of nature ('tatva Vijay') and Hariram went into the samadhi state for the next eight days. After he had practiced samadhi many times Prabhuji took Hariram, now Hariharanand ji along to serve him and then directed him to stay on the hills of Sheshgiri to practice his samadhi. He stays on those hills and gets up from samadhi once in every three months.

Blessings a proud hermit

There was a sadhu who had the powerful container that could never be filled by any food and always looked empty. He used to impress people with his power and achieve selfish gains. This sadhu once came to Prabhuji's ashram to eat and used his trick to finish up all the food cooked that day. Prabhuji understood his intentions and sent Hariharanand ji to control the situation. Hariharananda ji poured pudding in that container and it started overflowing. Seeing this the sadhu started asking for forgiveness. On promising Prabhuji that he will never misuse his powers his powers were restored and was guided into the siddha yoga.

Blessing sister Draupadi

Sister Draupadi became widow in her childhood. Prabhuji initiated her in the highest order of siddha yoga and she used to have divine experiences. When she used to offer food to Lord Krishna and meditate the some food used to disappear (eaten by the lord). Many people saw this happen in front of their eyes. She used to be in a very high samadhi state called 'Turyavastha'.

Blessing a Medhu boatman

Prabhuji appeared before him in his dream in the night and blessed, but this boatman asked Prabhuji to appear in live human form immediately. After his persistent requests Prabhuji who was in Rishikesh at that time appeared before him hundreds of kilometers away in Kashi.

Blessing Mr. Babu Singh

Mr. Babu Singh died due to the poison of opium, but Prabhuji put him back to life and later performed a miracle at this poor man's daughter's marriage. Prabhuji gave him his slippers to be kept in the place where food was prepared. All the vessels kept there became full of delicious food and the food did not get over until everyone in the marriage had eaten.

Blessing the son of a village Headman

After 12 years of leaving Savain cave when Prabhuji had come back to Rishikesh and lived there wearing the pundit attire of Dhoti kurta he blessed a dead son of a village headman and brought him back to life. Similarly he blessed a mother in Kashi whose son had died and brought back life to his son.

Blessing Ramrati

On Jamuniaghar situated on the borders of the states Bihar and Bengal, a kshatriya father and a son were waiting with a dagger in their hand for her daughter Ramrati whom they wanted to murder. Prabhuji while passing by noticed them and understanding their intentions with his omniscience powers asked them the reason for their anger and sadness. They explained to Prabhuji how Ramrati had brought disgrace to the family with her illicit relationships with many people. Prabhuji then asked the father-son duo if he can suggest a solution whereby they don't have to kill Ramrati and she also without being dead reforms herself into a pious woman. It seemed impossible for the father and son but then Ramrati was seen coming towards them intoxicated with liquor she had in hand and in her unmanaged and unclean physical self. Prabhuji asked if why she indulges in such wrong acts to which she replied that she enjoys them. Prabhuji asked her if she would want to do something that is more pleasurable than what she does. She said that there cannot be anything more pleasurable than what she indulges in, but if there is anything better she would definitely want to do that. Prabhuji asked her to sit in siddhasan posture and instantly made her experience the depths and bliss of samadhi. Prabhuji declared that Ramrati will henceforth be called a Devi (saint) and whoever serves her will be blessed and their wishes fulfilled. Ramrati Devi stayed in that place practicing samadhi for another 12 years. After 12 years Prabhuji was traveling through that place and went to meet her. Ramrati had by now become a great saint and was helping poor, unhappy and downtrodden people in that area.

Blessing the Yogini Saroj

After getting married to Mr. Balbir Singh of Rudki, Saroj was victimized by her in-laws and husband. Her husband went abroad and married someone else. After being ignored and feeling dejected she came to Prabhuji for refuge. She was given the 5 letter Shiva mantra by Prabhuji which she practiced and reached a Shiva state of being. She herself saw Lord Shiva appear before her in his physical form and bless her. He declared her date of death during the Navaratri festival and died at her own wish at the age of 24.

Blessing the character-less Saidas

Saidas was man of loose character and a drunkard in Dulhe ka Katla, Amritsar. His mother forcibly brought him to Prabhuji's feet and begged Prabhuji to reform him. The ever compassionate Prabhuji gave this man a very high state of meditation after giving him shaktipat. Once his mother wanted to take him along in some marriage ceremony, but Prabhuji did not allow that. Ignoring Prabhuji's instructions the mother took Saidas away. There Saidas again became a drunkard and lost all the divinity that he had received. He could never again get back to his divine self or could meditate after ignoring the directions of his guru.

Blessing the loose-character woman

One married woman was immensely attracted to a man. Prabhuji asked her to meditate on that man only. During meditation her concentration changed from that man to lord Krishna and then she became a yogini and a faithful wife.

Saving a village and a Krishna devotee

Sri Lakshman das a disciple of Prabhuji saw in his meditation that Prabhuji kicked his feet to the ground and this kick saved an entire village that could have been immersed in the floods of the river Yamuna. This was done just to save a Krishna Devotee who was in that village.

Blessing Brahmachari Gopalanandji

Brahmachari Gopalanandji was a disciple of gurudev who attained a very high state of samadhi, had many divine experiences, saw Guru Nanak Dev, the Guru of Sikh religion in meditation, was saved from curses, and had deep love for Lord Krishna. He penned down his experiences in his book titled ' My meditation experiences' in Hindi that can be bought from the ashram's publication center.

Kaya Nirman (forming another body of self)

One young saint wanted initiation from Prabhuji and Prabhuji himself stood in the sky and spoke to him. He saw this himself in front of his eyes. Saint Narayan DAs also experienced Prabhuji forming another body for him to give him initiation and bless him to conquer Khechri Siddhi, a very high state in Yoga.


Sightings of Prabhuji after he left his body

8 miles away from Amritsar at a place called Guru ke Batale Prabhuji appeared in front of his relative and asked him to go to Amritsar and tell all the disciples that he has gone to Nepal Himalayas and they should not worry about him. This relative named Mr. Dulichand then had lunch with Prabhuji and left for Amritsar to inform Prabhuji's relatives of his message. On reaching Amritsar he was shocked to see Prabhuji's dead body and he had not gone anywhere and had been in the deadbody state. This was a proof that Prabhuji is a siddha Yogi and can form or leave any body at his will. He has since then been seen by many disciples to this day. Some people saw him in the Prabhuji's body form while some saw him in different forms. My father Acharya Chandra Has Sharma ji also was fortunate to see Prabhuji once when he visited Pashupatinath temple in Kathmandu, Nepal. While a rudrabhishek was being performed a tall saint came to the temple and blessed people. No one could understand who this saint was even though one of the disciple thought him to be Prabhuji and paid her respect and then looked on the other side. It was later revealed to those disciples and Acharya ji that Prabhuji had come during that occasion to give his blessings and the fruits of performing the Rudrabhishek ritual.

Prabhuji has also been seen in mediation or in real life by many disciples who have reached a high level in their practice. Some people also have visions of Prabhuji even today and they seem to be possessed by him. Their voice changes and their speech becomes the speech of prabhuji. Even though they are unaware of scriptures or technical terms of yoga or anything about ayurveda or astrology they talk about the depths of these subjects and guide disciples listening. Some of these possessed people don't even have enough education to know anything of that sort so its a mystery and a miracle. I myself am a scientific and a rational person educated according to the western school of thought and do not believe in anything mumbo-jumbo unless I see it myself and see some truth in it. I have been a witness to this and have seen lot of miracles happening in front of my eyes and with me many times by my Gurudev and Prabhuji.

I myself met another saint named Lal Baba who even today permanently lives near Muni ki reti in Rishikesh who narrated various incidents where he met Prabhuji. He had twice embarked journeys to Nepal to meet Prabhuji. After a long and tiring journey not knowing where to find Prabhuji he was taken to Prabhuji by some yogi who had appeared to help him on prabhuji's instructions. On reaching Prabhuji's abode in Nepal he found that there was no vegetation in that place and the place was uninhabited. Prabhuji offered him freshly prepared delicious food which is a mystery because there was no other human being or any food available on those mountain ranges. Prabhuji then told him not to ever come to meet him again as everytime Lal Babaji makes a trip, Prabhuji has to worry about his safety, food and well being.
The last time Lal Baba ji had experiences of Prabhuji was few years ago in his Rishikesh ashram. He was bitten by a snake and felt that he is now about to die. So he closed the doors of his room sat in meditation and chanted a Sanskrit shlok which means that O lord please take me in your arms as I am now leaving my body. On chanting this he felt Prabhuji's hand on his head and felt his divine grace that took him into deep samadhi state for the next 41 days without food, water or even change of posture. Lal Baba is still very much alive and a living proof of Prabhuji's grace.

Many a times this question was asked to Prabhuji's disciple and my guru Sri Chandra Mohan ji Maharaj about Mahavtar Babaji as written in the world famous book by Sri Yoganandaji - 'Autobiography of a Yogi'. Gurudev used to say that this is Prabhuji himself as he takes many body forms to fulfill his mission. He has been there since a long time. Even Adi Guru Shankaracharya, GorakshaNatha were Mahavtar Babaji only. Prabhuji's work method is such that nobody knows him fully. He throws light with his torch to human beings who are seeking their path and then turns away, without them knowing who was their guide. Such Siddha yogi who has everything does not desire any publicity, name, or any material benefits. They only seek deserving devotees who are in search of truth and help them through the means they deserve.

There is no end to the stories of Prabhuji's compassion, miracles and blessings. The human mind can comprehend only as much as he can understand within the limited resources he has. These are only some of the incidents that were known . There are innumerable incidents of grace that have been showered on known and unknown people whose lives have become divine and blessed.
